Ledonia Wright plans expansion
Walls to fall,
arms to open
Angela Harne
Assistant News Editor
Last Saturday, board mem-
bers of the Ledonia Wright Cul-
tural Center and ECU represen-
tatives met to discuss methods to
further promote the diversity
initiative on campus and the
possible expansion of the center.
According to Nell Lewis, di-
rector of the Ledonia Wright
Cultural Center, board members
are committed to a vision which
will enable the center to act as a
tool that will help the campus
embrace all diverse student
groups by assisting them in
achieving their educational, per-
sonal and social goals.
"Our programs will foster the
bridging of the cultural divide
Lewis said.
Malcolm Woodall, assistant
vice chancellor for Institutional
Advancement said the meeting
went well.
"Lots of opinions were shared
and heard Woodall said. "Ev-
eryone is very excited about mak-
ing the center a key source for
resource on campus
Woodall said efforts are being
made to design programs to
share resources and invite other
cultures to join in the experience.
Dr. Lathan Turner, director of
Minority Student Affairs, said he
feels that in this year alone the
university has made great strides
in promoting diversity.
"I feel we ECUj are the lead-
ing institution within the UNC
system dealing with and promot-
ing diversity Turner said.
Chancellor Eakin agreed that
programs throughout the year
have enabled everyone to under-
stand those of different cultures
for themselves.
"I have seen fine improve-
ments over the year Eakin said.
Eakin said diversity efforts
have been strongly led by Moore
and Taffye Benson Clayton, di-
rector of Equal Opportunity. He
added that Na'im Akbar, co-chair
of the Minority Student Coali-
tion, has done a great job in lead-
ing the students to help with di-
versity issues.
"I am encouraged by the stu-
dent and administration effort
Eakin said. "1 hope it will con-
tinue to grow and think the cul-
tural center is on the right path
According to Moore, the cul-
tural center is trying to imple-
ment programs which will con-
nect all academic offers at the
university.
"Currently the mission of the
cultural center is to provide pro-
grams within the black heritage
Moore said. "Though our goal
now is to reach out to all cultures

BSOM tests diabetes medicine administered in new way
Inhaler makes for
painless insulin use
Martina Clyburn
STAFF WRITER
Researchers at ECU'S Brody
School of Medicine (BSOM) have
recently developed an insulin in-
haler and an implantable glucose
sensor as part of a study research
program that aims to cut down on
the amount of insulin Injections
necessary for diabetics.
Dr. Robert Tanenberg, 2 profes-
sor of medicine in the section of
endocrinology, said that ECU is one
of SO centers in the country per-
forming a study on the insulin In-
haler and one of four centers study-
ing the glucose sensor.
"Our doctors have been in-
volved with the national scenes and
they have noticed that ECU has
some good doctors in the field of
diabetes Tanenberg said.
Researchers are studying ways to
make checking blood sugar levels
and administering Insulin easier
and less painful for diabetics.
"The glucose sensor is more a
convenient way to check your sugar
level rather than pricking your fin-
ger three or more times a day
Tanenberg said.
The sensor, which is about the
the size of a beeper, is worn on a
belt or in a pocket and is connected
to a small tube that you put on your
skin to monitor glucose levels in the

ficers advised that no crime
had taken place.
Damage to Property-A
student in Umstead re-

Duke University-In 1971, the
Charlotte-Mecklenburg school dis-
trict was the site of the precedent-
setting U.S. Supreme Court decision,
Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenburg
Board of Education, requiring local
schools to achieve racial diversity,
even if it meant busing students.
Today, the same district lies on the
opposite end of the dispute over
race-based school assignments.
While the school district awaits
a 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
trial, stakeholders are speculating
whether the judicial system will
now reverse years of busing-and,
some would say, significani steps
toward integration.
Meanwhile, residents of North
Carolina are considering a way to
address diversity in the state's pub-
lic schools.
In a case brought by seven white
parents, U.S. District Judge Robert
Potter ruled in September that the
district cannot continue busing. The
ruling found that, although dispari-
ties between schools still existed,
that the Charlotte-Mecklenburg
school system had achieved "uni-
tary status" and no longer discrimi-
nated based on race.
The school system appealed the
case to the 4th Circuit, while two
more parents joined the original
seven. The court is scheduled to
hear oral arguments this June.
Arthur Griffin, chair of the Char-
lotte-Mecklenburg Hoard of Educa-
tion, insists that the 1971 Supreme
Court ruling still applies to the
school district because conditions
have not progressed far enough in
the past 30 years.
"I can still see the vestiges of a
dual system Griffen said. "The in-
junction against race is precedent-
setting in this current case. No
judge has ever gone so far as to say
that you can't use race as a crite-
rion for school assignment
Potter wrote in his decision that,
"the school system is resisting the
removal of the desegregation order
because it now wishes to use that
order as a pretext to pursue race-
conscious, diversity-enhancing poli-
cies in perpetuity
Jim Puckett, a Board of Educa-
tion member who voted against the
board's 6-3 decision to appeal
Potter's injunction, agreed, saying
the board's focus should be educate
ing low-income students regardless
of race.
"If I can close the educational
gap between rich and poor neigh-
borhoods, then I can figure out
how to deal with diversity on the
other side of the road Puckett said.
Attorneys for the U.S. Depart-
ment of Justice filed a brief with the
4th Circuit last month, arguing that
Potter had not sufficiently exam-
ined whether the schools remained
segregated. The brief took no stance
on Potter's final decision.
Because of its rulings in similar
cases, experts say the notoriously
conservative court may confirm
Potter's ruling against race-based
assignment.
"I would not be surprised to see
them uphold the decision said
Harry Wilson, the legal advisor to
the North Carolina Board of Educa-
tion (NCBOE).
Indeed, the court ruled against
-aqe-based assignment in two re-
lated cases last year.
The court upheld an Arlington,
Va district court ruling that race
could not be used as a factor in
magnet school admissions and over-
turned a Montgomery County, Md
decision allowing schools to reject
race-based transfer requests.
University of Florida-Student
leaders from across the state sat at
the Florida Student Association
meeting Monday afternoon atten-
tively listening to Lt. Gov. Frank
Brogan as he addressed the group
on a number of issues affecting stu-
dents.
During his half-hour speech,
Brogan focused on convincing stu-
dents of what he called the positive
aspects of Gov. Jeb Bush's One
Florida plan.
The plan gets rid of racial and
gender preferences in college admis-
sions and hiring and contracting
practices in the state.
Brogan said quotas, set-asides
and price-preferences are wrong
when it limits one group of people
and benefits another. Therefore, he
said, a new principle is needed to
ensure diversity.
He said the two groups of people
most likely opposing One Florida
are minorities and political leaders
who "don't really care about the stu-
dents
He also said he respected minori-
ties because they have worked hard
over the years for the opportunity
to receive a quality education.
"I understand their fear he
said, adding that there is usually fear
when a significant change occurs.
But he said pre-college prepara-
tion was a key element for the plan
t6 be successful.
Right now, 26 counties in
Florida do not offer advanced place-
ment courses. He said elimination
of racial consideration will bring
forth a greater "out-reach" toward
minority students in high school,
while encouraging them to do well
in their academics and take the
PSAT as well as SAT for preparation.
Brogan also mentioned the Talented
20 portion of One Florida.
Talented 20 is designed to re-
ward the top 20 percent of every
high school's graduating class by
guaranteeing them admission to a
state university, but it will not re-
strict students outside that 20 per-
cent.
"A few schools do not use racial
consideration in their admissions
criteria, such as the University of
North Florida, and yet the minor-
ity enrollment has increased Bro-
gan said. "Just give us time. We will
guarantee better minority enroll-
ment in the State University System.
This is a fact
SGA NOTES
Treasurer Overton Harper an-
nounced that $18,200 in SGA
loans have been paid back, leav-
ing a $21,600 balance. Harper
said that 47 percent of the loans
have been paid back in full and
reminded legislators that records
would be tagged if the loans are
not paid back.
Brent Queen, the newly
elected SGA president announced
that the executive council nomi-
nated junior Robert Nicks to be

2000-01 school year. The body
voted unanimously to instate
Nicks.
Executive coordinator of in-

reported that progress had been
made to remedy some of the
problems.
Cliff Webster made his last ad-
dress to the SGA as president and
thanked members for a memo-
rable and productive year.
The body approved constitu-
tions for the following organiza-
tions: Alpha Kappa Psi profes-
sional business fraternity, New
Life Christian Fellowship, Golden
Key National Honor Society and
Epsilon Chi fraternity.
Representatives also moved to
transfer $3000 to the senior class
account to fund the traditional
senior class gift to the university.
blood.
According to Carolyn Knuckee,
a practical nurse at the BSOM, the
insulin inhaler is less painful than
a needle because the insulin is in-
haled into the lungs. The inhaler is
also more effective because the in-
sulin is released into the blood
stream faster through Inhalation
than it is with the ingestion of oral
medication.
Janet Heath, who is a user of the
insulin inhaler, was introduced to
the study because of a publication
at ECU that stated a need for people
to help assist in a neuropathy study.
"When they checked the ques-
tionnaire, they discovered that I fit
the diabetic research requirements,
because I took oral medicine and
had a controlled sugar level Heath
said.
Heath has been using the inhaler
since the second week in December
and says her sugar levels have been
excellent. According to Heath, there
are three categories of this study.
"The first was to use the inhaler
only, the second group the one she
was picked for used the Inhaler and
their medication, while the last
group continued to use only their
medication Heath said.
"I am doing very well and have'
not had any problems she said,
"I'm hoping that my regular doctor i
will take me off of my oral medica- �

Knuckee said that there have
been no safety problems with the
inhaler. � i

Columbine students, staff warily approach anniversary
LITTLETON, Colo. (AP)-As the anniversary of the
Columbine High School attack nears, many students,
teachers and victims' relatives are striving to insulate
themselves from the world's attention.
.They have stood shoulder to shoulder facing the
media, patiently answering questions with wavering
voices and watery eyes. Some have asked for privacy as
they observe Thursday's anniversary.
Al and Phyllis Velasquez, whose son Kyle was killed,
considered leaving the city but instead will have a pot-
luck dinner with family and friends.
To me, running away would be like we're
ashamed Al Velasquez said. His wife added, "There's
no shame
. As April 20 approaches, some find themselves break-
ing Into tears at times or slipping backward in the heal-
ing process.
"It's like a flashback, "Phyllis Velasquez said. "You
remember what you were doing that day. I remember
waiting in the gymnasium at the elementary school,
hoping to see my child walk through. Those are things
we've been able to hold at bay until this point
Principal Frank DeAngelis estimated about 5 per-
cent to 10 percent of the student body up to 200 will
attend a closed memorial service Thursday, based on
attendance at other school shootings.
"The anniversary is definitely a milestone said
Jefferson County School District spokeswoman Marilyn
Saltzman. "Staff and students are feeling that it is com-
ing, and I don't think anybody knows how they are
going to feel on that day
School officials expect up to 100,000 people to at-
tend a public memorial service Thursday afternoon at
a park adjacent to Columbine. It will be followed by a
candlelight vigil.
A separate service will be held at the State Capitol,
where Gov. Bill Owens will call for a moment of si-
lence at 11:21 a.m the time the attack began.
Relatives of at least four victims plan to attend a
service Thursday afternoon at the nearby Trinity Chris-
tian Center. It was organized by Darrell Scott, whose
daughter, Rachel, was slain.
Security will be increased at Columbine and other
district schools, but officials decline to be more spe-
cific. Students and educators have been required all year
to wear identification badges.
It was nearly lunch time when Eric Harris and Dylan
Klebold strode onto Columbine's campus and opened
fire, killing two students outside the school. They en-
tered the building, scattered gunfire and explosive de-
vices and fatally shot 10 more classmates and teacher
Dave Sanders before they committed suicide.
The rampage, the worst school shooting in U.S. his-
tory, has cost nearly $9 million In expenses incurred
by public agencies who responded last April 20, and
ongoing investigative and counseling expenses.
The parents of the both teen-age gunmen have again
apologized to the victims.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP)-North
Carolina business owners need to
cooperate with federal officials to
stop hackers causing millions of
dollars in damage to corporate and
government computer systems, of-
ficials said.
North Carolina has become a
home to both hackers and their vic-
tims, FBI agents said at the annual
forum of the N.C. Electronics and
Information Technologies Associa-
tion.
"We need your help in identify-
ing the problem said Chris
Swecker, special agent in charge of
the Charlotte FBI office. "We need
to know what's out there on the
cyber-street, so to speak
Robert Young, chairman of Red
Hat Inc a Durham-based software
supplier, said the primary responsi-
bility for stopping hackers lies with
businesses. By adopting strong se-
curity measures and fixing the holes
that hackers exploit, businesses can
make the problem eventually go
away, he said.
FBI agents investigating com-
puter hacking that disrupted popu-
lar Web sites, including
Amazon.com, CNN, and Yahoo! ear-
lier this year have identified several
North Carolina victims, said Doris
Gardner, supervisory agent of
Charlotte's FBI computer crimes
unit.
The investigation has also iden-
tified computer systems in North
Carolina used by hackers to com-
mit such attacks, she said Thursday.
This summer, the FBI plans to
form a task force with businesses to
share information and alerts about
hacking attempts. It will also survey
North Carolina businesses to see
how many have been the victims
of cyber-terrorists.
Swecker said prosecutions of
hackers have been slow because of
the reluctance of businesses to re-
port security intrusions for fear of
bad publicity and lost business.
Gardner noted that too many
corporations emphasize the speed
and accessibility of their computer
systems at the expense security.
One target of FBI investigators
is a hacker who recently confessed
to intruding into 400 computer sys-
tems worldwide within four months
and using them to launch "a distrib-
uted denial of service" attack against
a North Carolina company, Gardner
said.
The technique involves hacking
into computers and using them to
direct a flood of messages into com-
puters that run Web sites, over-
whelming them and making the
sites inaccessible to customers. The
attack is relatively simple for most
hackers, Gardner said.
Gardner and Swecker wouldn't
discuss specifics of the North Caro-
lina connection, but Swecker told
the business group to expect a wave
of prosecutions soon.
"These are high-dollar damages
and some of these people need to
go away for a while he said.

Protesters in Miami taunt Elian's father
MIAMI (AP)-Demonstrators
in Little Havana called Elian
Gonzalez's father a traitor and a
coward on Saturday while Juan
Miguel Gonzalez, in an interview
with CBS, denied accusations he
was abusive and said he was be-
ing falsely characterized.
The protesters' chants came
a day after affidavits filed by the
boy's Miami relatives alleged the
father abused his ex-wife and 6-year-
old son. The Justice Department has
said it has found no evidence that
the father was abusive.
"They are lies, totally Juan
Miguel Gonzalez told CBS' "60 Min-
utes" in an interview to be aired
Sunday. "They have tried in every
way to set me as a bad father, as a
bad husband
The 4 and a half-month custody
struggle was in the hands of the fed-
eral appeals court in Atlanta, which
issued a temporary injunction
Thursday blocking Elian from leav-
ing the country. The Justice Depart-
ment also agreed that day to hold
off on reuniting Elian with his
father for a few days.
The government wants the
appeals court to suspend the in-
junction and order the 6-year-
old's great-uncle to hand him

Sordid picture of Asheville police painted by former member
ASHEVILLE,NC (AP)-Residents
in this city are getting a look at their
police department's dirty laundry,
thanks to a lawsuit filed by five
former officers.
AH five Leanna Young, Janet
Crisp, Paul Evington, Scott Gaddy
and Rock Edwards were fired or
forced to resigned because of alle-
gations of misconduct, including
having sex with a prostitute in a
police substation.
But in a lawsuit filed last year,
the five contend they were forced
to leave their jobs for offenses regu-
larly committed by other officers.
The allegations were laid out in de-
tail in court documents filed this
month.
An attorney for the city, Sharon
Tracey Barrett, called the lawsuit's
allegations "nothing but a collec-
tion of unfounded rumors, vicious.
gossip and scurrilous personal at-
tacks" in a written response filed in
the case.
Police Chief Will Annarino de-
clined to comment.
The city has asked a judge to dis-
miss the lawsuit, and a federal judge
may decide soon whether to allow
the case to proceed.
The court documents contain
the following charges:
�That one of the former officers
attended Fraternal Order of Police
(FOB) parties "where the officers
consumed great quantities of alco-
hol and gambled The lawsuit
claims no action was taken against
the officers at the party.
�That at another FOP party, "It
was common knowledge that a fe-
male police officer and another
woman were sexually involved on
the hood of a car
�That a longtime police officer
was demoted, but kept his job, af-
ter a former city council member's
relative caught the officer having
sex with a prostitute at a police sub-
station.
�That a lieutenant and a patrol
officer both had drinking problems
and were intoxicated on duty but
continued to work and drive ve-
hicles.
�That an officer was caught gam-
bling on videotape. The department
received a copy of the tape but did
not discipline the officer.
Evington admitted in court
documents that he had oral sex with
a prostitute inside a satellite police
station in 1997. The woman per-
formed oral sex for Evington, and
he gave her $3 for a pack of ciga-
rettes.
ELIAN
"from page 3
over. The relatives want the court
to let them meet with Elian's father
without being required to let Elian
go-
The Justice Department also
pointedly reminded the great-uncle,
Lazaro Gonzalez, that he lost legal
custody of Elian on Thursday when
he defied the government's demand
that he take the boy to the airport
for a flight to Washington. Elian's
father has been waiting there since
April 6.
A Newsweek poll released Satur-
day found that a majority of Ameri-
cans now felt the family was not co-
operating enough with government
and court efforts to resolve the case.
A majority also disapproved of the
Clinton administration's handling
of the case.
Both disapproval numbers were
up from a week earlier. But the same
amount-53 percent-thought Elian
should be returned to his father in
Cuba. The poll was conducted
among 752 adults on April 13-14
and the results have a 4 percentage
point error margin.
Also Saturday, President
Clinton, speaking in the Sequoia
National Forest in California, said:
"We have to let the court cases be
decided, but I think the main thing
is 1 hope all the people who came
to the United States because we have
freedom and rule of law will observe
the rule of law
A few hours after Clinton's com-
ments, a lawyer for the family
stepped outside the home and told
the crowd of 400 that the family
would not try to stop the govern-
ment from taking the boy, but it
would not help.
"The family respects the rule of
law. The family recognizes and ac-
cepts the legal right of the INS to
pick up Elian said Manny Diaz.
"The door will be open The fam-
ily will not interfere. The family will
not resist
Early Sunday, one demonstrator
exhorted others to begin bringing
their own video cameras to record
what happens when the govern-
ment moves in. Bienvenido Comas,
27, of Miami, said protest organiz-
ers fear that if any violence erupts,
it would be blamed on them.
"We fear there could be another

and we have to take precautions

Communications Majors
The ECU Athletic Department's Media
Relations Office is seeking to hire
enthusiastic student assistants for the
2000-2001 academic year, preferably
freshmen and sophomores.
It's a great opportunity to gain valuable experience
in the field of communications. If interested, call the
media relations office at 328-4522 to set up an
appointment
with his father, many protesters in
Little Havana said they feared the
moment would come Monday-the
anniversary of the disastrous Bay of
Pigs invasion.
On April 17, 1961, a force of
CIA-trained Cuban exiles tried to
invade Cuba and overthrow the
government of Fidel Castro. Cuban
forces easily repelled the invasion
at the swampy, mosquito-ridden
inlet on the country's southern
coast, killing 200 rebels and captur-
ing almost 1,200.
Cuba's victory became the defin-
ing moment for Miami's Cuban ex-
iles, who accused President John F.
Kennedy of betraying them by fail-
ing to back up the invasion force
with aerial cover.
"It's important that they not win
this one said Maria Miller, who
said her brother fought in the inva-
sion.
Early in the day, amid shouts of
coward and traitor, the crowd be-
gan chanting: "Elian shouldn't

ing. His mother and 10 other people
fleeing Cuba drowned when their
boat sank.
His Miami relatives have cared
for him since then and have been
fighting in court for an asylum hear-
ing. The Clinton administration has
ordered Elian be reunited with his
father, saying only he can speak for
the boy on immigration matters.
The relatives are appealing a federal
judge's ruling that upheld the
government's decision.
The lawyer for Elian's father,
Gregory Craig, on Saturday harshly
criticized repeated the allegations of
abuse. He called the tactic a desper-
ate effort to influence the court pro-
ceedings.
Residents of Elian's hometown
of Cardenas, Cuba, have repeatedly
told The Associated Press that Elian's
parents, though divorced, had a
very good relationship.
Craig also noted that in March,
Elian's cousin Marisleysis called
Juan Miguel Gonzalez "a loving and
good father" and said she was look-
ing forward to seeing Elian's face
when they were reunited.

OURVIEW
While the students of ECU have been dealing with the minority
discrimination problem downtown for a while, TEC has given this
problem heavy coverage. It is a shame that we still have to write
about the discrimination that goes on in our bars, and that minori-
ties still have to worry about whether they will be allowed to have
a good time in a public establishment.
Although racial discrimination is obviously a problem in Greenville,
we would like to remind everyone of another type of discrimination
that ECU seems to have a problem with: thp fact that this campus
is still not 100 percent handicap accessible.
While it is not fair that minorities cannot go into certain bars, it
is even worse that physically handicapped students cannot enter
certain buildings on our own campus.
Take for example, the Student Publications Building and the
campus post office. While Student Pubs may have a ramp and
automatic doors outside the building, there is still no way a handi-
capped individual can access the second floor. These same indi-
viduals also have no way to pick up packages at University Mail
Services located in the Old Cafeteria Complex. It is horrible that
some students on our campus cannot take advantage of the same
campus services that so many of us take for granted.
Furthermore, there are still some residence halls that are .not
handicap accessible. When students are deciding where to live, a
lot of factors are considered. Most of us do not have to think
about whether we can even get into the residence hall of our choice,
while sadly some students do.
The next time you find yourself in a deep conversation about
how evil all the bar owners of downtown Greenville are for prevent-
ing students of all types from entering their Buildings, think about
the forgotten discrimination problem on our campus: that not ev-
ery ECU student is able to enter all buildings on this 'diverse' cam-
pus.
OPINION COLUMN
More asinine Web sites uncovered
Ryan Kennemur
OPINION COLUMNIST
If you have been a loyal reader of my col-
umn for the past few years, then you no doubt
have gathered that I am a big fan of the Internet.
Since I showed up here four years agoI have
grown more and more aware of and amazed by
the idea of surfing the World Wide Web. You
know it's that thing that Al Gore invented. I
find the internet to be helpful with papers and
a great reference for personal interests such as
music (porn), art (porn) and even sewing (well,
you know).
The only problem that I see regarding the
Internet, other than an overall lacking of pho-
tographs of nimble young men and women who
really "love" vegetables, is that there are so
many sites devoted to the most useless topics
imaginable. That's why I, being a professional
in the area of sneering at things I don't under-
- stand, took it upon myself to scope out a few of
these renegade Web sites and present them to
you, the reader, with no small amount of sar-
casm. Here's a few just to whet the palate. Aban-
don all hope, all ye who visit these sites.
The Cow Dance Site-www.cowdance.com-I
stumbled onto this site via the similar Hamster
Dance site that was permanently on the com-
puter in "The East Carolinians newsroom. The
idea is simple. Draw a gaggle (or is it flock?) of
cows in various costumes and use Java to make
them line dance. You've got your Disco Cow,
your Cow Rockettes and of course, the cow-
headed dancing MC Hammer-each one cutting
a rug to the "Moosic" of your choice. What pur-
pose does this Web site serve? Apparently some-
one out there likes it because there are now sites
devoted to bizarre dancing animals like lizards,
armadillos and oddly enough, Dixie Carter. My
final analysis: Make it stop! Oh God, please make
it stop!
Sparky the Dog-www.amused.com
Sparky.html-This site is just plain odd. Some
guy named Mahir took the time out of his oth-
erwise busy day (he looks to be some sort of
suit salesman) to make a Web site devoted to a
badly drawn dog named Sparky. The crazy thing
is, the speaker of the site is actually the cartoon
dog. He says things like "I like kiss you and make
love you leg "I have squeezie toys, nice bowl"
and "I like sex Also, the scrappy 111' guy seems
to have a sense of pride, as every third sentence
is "I NOT NEUTERED My final analysis: Obvi-
ously a pioneer in non-neutered, poorly drawn
doggie sites. Makes me wonder what the word
neuter means.
Mullets Galore-www.mulletsgalore.com-Out of
all the sites I've seen lately, this one just boggles
my fragile little mind. This is a 12-page site deal-
ing with the "mullet" hairstyle, which is some-
times called a "seven" or an "el camino The style,
if you have never visited Winn Dixie on a Sun-
day, is short in the front and long in the back. Or
as the site puts it, "business up front, party in
the back
The site consists of pictures taken by random
mullet hunters across the country, all featuring
these haircuts in their own habitat. The site even
devised scientific names for the different types
of mullets. In fact, the site has a rating system
called "Mulletude" and also tries to identify the
hobbies and interests of the people pictured. My
final analysis: These people are just so sorry look-
ing, and I feel bad for saying this, that I couldn't
turn away. In fact, I can still see them when I close
my eyes. It's that bad. If you're ever feeling down
and out, visit this .site. It'll give you a new lease
on life unless your picture is there. OK, we have
time for one more. This one is actually one of my
favorites.
Wu-Name-www.recordstore.comwuname-It's
a site dedicated to the Wu-Tang Clan rap group,
all of whom have their own little nifty nicknames
like Big 01' Dirty Baby Bastard. This site gives the
average person his or her own personal Wu-Name.
Mine is Ryan "Tha Lazy Destroya" Dogg. But I
couldn't stop! There's also David "Monolithic Fish-
monger-X" Crosby, Kris "01' Filthy, Sweaty Bas-
tard" Kristofferson and, of course, Elian "Tha
Childish Gambino" Gonzalez. My final analysis:
A very helpful Web site that deals with pop cul-
ture and how it affects us as a populace. Also, if
I didn't know about this site, I'd never know that
my girlfriend is actually the "Jive Talkin' Choir-
girl
That's all for this week. I'll have more next
week, so if you have a site that you think needs
to be written about, write to me at the address
below. Take care of yourself, and each other.

OPINION COLUMN
High prices limit healthy food options
Patrick McMahon
OPINION COLUMNIST
I am sick. Yeah, that's right, I'm sick. But I'm
not the "man-my-nose-is-running-I-got-a-head-
ache" kind of sick. Seems as though a recent
checkup at the good old doctor's office revealed
to me that I have astronomical cholesterol levels
(over 350) and even higher triglyceride levels
(can you say "1699"). Yeah, I live in the South
and eat pork right off the bone so I'm just get-
ting what I deserve right? Wrong answer.
I got the news about two weeks ago and since
then I have been trying to eat right and exercise
more. I guess that girl who wrote in about idiots
in the rec center is gonna get mad that this weight
room newbie is now taking up her precious stair-
master time.
After my fat-burning and cholesterol devour-
ing workouts, I usually decide to go to campus
and get a healthy meal since I still have a meal
plan and some declining balance. The conversa-
tion with the workers there usually sounds like
this: Urn, can I get that Healthy Choice turkey
and lettuce deli wrap please? Sure honey, here
you go. Thanks. How much is it? That comes to
$5.88 including the small Diet Pepsi and the tan-
gerine.
Can you believe that? Six dollars to eat low
fat and low calorie foods You can get two slices
of grease-soaked pizza and a drink for $2.99 (its
a "special" while everything else ain't.) No won-
der they are charging extra tuition to maintain
the buildings. Too many students are eating the
high fat and high calorie food and they have to
use the rec center more and more so they can
burn it all off. I smell a conspiracy. They jack up
the healthy foods' prices while dropping the
unhealthy ones so people will get fat and use the
multi-million dollar rec center! Ingenious!
Why is it so hard to get healthy food on cam-
pus? I want to eat right, I need to eat right, my
cardiologist begs me to eat right, so why doesn't
the university? Don't even get me started on the
dining hall's pathetic attempt at "healthy living
Since when does a TYR (Treating Yourself Right)
salmon cake count as healthy when they cook it
in deep fat fryers and bake it on greasy ovens
that look like something out of the Middle Ages?
The salads are a poor excuse for garbage, let
alone food. The lettuce is so old you can blow
bubbles with it and the cucumbers and green
peppers have taken on a slight urine smell. Um,
hey, can I get some fresh lettuce? Is that too much
to ask? I pay $1,400 dollars a semester for this,
so I kind of would like something fresh to eat
when I go in there.
One's health is something that should not be
toyed with. I have relatives that are fighting the
same things I am now and they tell me how lucky
I was to catch it this early in my life. What in the
hell am I supposed to do about it if everything is
priced so far out of any normal person's finan-
cial reach that they must resort to the infamous
$2.99 pizza special?
Hell, at Wendy's I can get two Double Stacks
with cheese, a Biggie order of french fries and a
medium water for $2.83 with my student dis-
count. Now, if I have $3 in my pocket and want
to eat healthy, what kind of choice do I have?
None. It's either go to Wendy's and eat fattening
foods or eat at the Wright Place and pay $3 for a
fat-free yogurt and a Diet Caffeine Free Pepsi
which couldn't fill up a shot glass, let alone my
stomach.
No wonder the rec center is becoming so
crowded. The school is forcing them to use it af-
ter eating all the low-price-grease-soaked-man-
this-is-good-but-I-can-hear-my-arteries-clogging-
from-here kind of food. Shame on you, Dining
Services. Hey can I have your mailing address?
Why, you ask? Well I need somewhere to send
the biil for all of my heart treatment and medi-
cation, that's why. You broke it, you buy it.

OPINION COLUMN
Opinion about diversity can remain personal
D. Miccah Smith
OPINION COLUMNIST
Once again, here I am in front of the com-
puter, sans opinion, with a major case of liter-
ary stage fright, if that's possible. I think it's
possible, anyway, because the idea of you all
reading this (which you will) and then talking
to me about it later (which you will), makes me
feel like I should have something relevant, if not
wildly hilarious, to say.
I have just been told by my editor that I
should write my opinion on the diversification
of the ECU Board of Trustees. Here's my chance
to drag out the old P.C. jargon and confuse the
hell out of myself and others, while winning gen-
eral acclaim for my open-mindedness. So I will.
As a student at ECU, my views on the diversi-
fication of the Board are, in themselves, diverse,
and possess many unique elements. Therefore,
I cannot advocate one over the other, since to
give one precedence would be discriminatory to
the others, whose intrinsic value and worth I
strive to recognize, nay, celebrate.
Yes, I celebrate my diverse and rich ideas,
refusing to select the "best" from among them.
My mind is a global marketplace, brimming with
a heterogeneous, yet strangely homogenized,
mixture of ideas and viewpoints which I myself
rarely understand. How can I "weed out" the "in-
ferior" or "incorrect" thoughts, when to some
person in my audience, they may make perfect
sense?
Now I'm beginning to think some very ugly
thoughts about my editor, whose suggestion that
I actually select one thought from my own well-
spring of valuable ideas, to exploit it for the en-
tertainment or "education" of others, and to de-
value all my other opinions for its sake is, in my
opinion, not only cruel but ludicrous! Perhaps if
I sued her, she'd open her eyes and see how truly
biased she is, and I could buy a new car
Furthermore, I really should not attempt to
share my diverse and colorful viewpoints with
anyone, lest I leave one out and subject myself to
a self-lawsuit on the grounds of ideological dis-
crimination. Therefore, I will remain silent on this
matter, not wishing to offend any of my radically
different brain cells, whose constant strivings
toward harmony have prompted me to write a
book called How I Pretend That Diversity and
Unity are the Same Thing So My Head Doesn't
Explode.

Pack your bags-
Earth Day is hen
While Earth
Day is
celebrated
once a year, a
handful of vaca-
tioners each
week experience
just how beautiful our planet really can be each
and every day. There are actually liter-free loca-
tions worldwide where housing developments
have yet to replace the virtually untouched natu-
ral habitat that was here long before human in-
habitants. Next time you are planning a vacation
and you think you need a break from the push
and shove of everyday life, try one of these
peaceful destinations to get the most out of your
time off.
Baja, Califs-Imagine a place with two dis-
tinct oceans surrounding the land you stand
upon. Can you picture spending time in a desti-
nation with four unique ecosystems, each one
vastly different than the
one before? If that is not
enough, tourists at the
Seammons Lagoon are
able to spend two-and-a
half days up close and
personal with over 23 dif-
ferent species of whales.
Amazingly, these whales
are known for their play-
ful manner and Interac-
tion with visitors. After
that incredible experi-
ence, going to the La
Unlca Wilderness Retreat is a wonderful place to
reflect as well as spend time in a serene setting.
Rivers Bend Campground, VtFew
things in life are more relaxing than spending a
weekend in the great outdoors, as demonstrated
by John Candy in the film dubbed the ladder
term. Realistically though, there really is great
calmness in spending time in a natural setting. At
Rivers Bend Campground in New Haven, Vt
campers get just that, peace, quiet and a whole
lot of fun!
From biking and tubing to canoeing, campers
and visitors alike attain a great sense of solidarity
from a weekend of relaxation in one of the 65 RV
or tent sites located directly on the river bank.
The setting is picturesque with the peaks the

ness, the RVs as well as camp sites offer hot
water and clean restroom facilities, two com- '
modifies that make" the experience even more
enjoyable!
Babson Park Nature Center, FlaThis
lush and diverse region is unique in that it is
nothing new among the surface of Florida. For
millions of years, the sea covered the plains of
Florida except for the narrow ridge that has come
to be known as Lake Wales Ridge. After the Ice
Ages, water began to recede and.land was ex-
posed, both sea creatures as well as new animal
forms began to expand their territory into this re-
gion.
As a result, Lake Whales hosts the likes of all
types of creatures, especially those that are rare
and endangered in North America. With desert
like soils, animals as uncommon as the sand
skink and the Indigo snake live here. Also, the re-
gion has become a highly regarded spot for bota-
nists because it produces plants such as the
scrub blazing star and the scrub palm, two ex-
tremely rare plant forms.
Campus groups fail to recognize Earth Day
Students' environmental
interest declines
Kristen Monte
FEATURES WRITER
On April 22, 2000, Earth Day will be a celebration
of 30 years of the modern environmental movement.
Here at ECU, plans for this day are falling short of the
celebrations taking place around the globe.
According to David Merrill, President of the Envi-
ronmental Conservation Organization of ECU (ECO-
ECU), the club has no plans for Earth Day because of
their low membership.
"I think that a lot of students are Just apathetic
Merrill said. "Another problem is that students come
to the meetings and then don't want to participate in
any activities
The main goal of the club, as stated in their consti-
tution, is to raise the
environmental
awareness of the
campus. ECO-ECU
played large role in
acquiring the recy-
cling bins that are
on campus now, but
almost all other pro-
posed projects have
been turned down
by school adminis-
tration or did not
happen due to a lack of participation.
"To get things done we need to get money from
the SGA, gain a lot of student interest and"change the
administrations' views Merrill said.
Environmental activism has often been a subject
of debate on college campuses, and support from ad-
ministration and larger student organizations had to
be gained through hard work and determination in
1970, when the movement to preserve the beauty and;
bio-diversity of our planet began.
The first Earth Day was marked by thousands of
colleges and universities protesting against the dete-
rioration of the environment. This led to the creation
of the United States Environmental Protection Agency
and the passage of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water
Act and the Endangered Species Act, according to the Earth
Day Network.
"The objective was to organize a national demonstra
tion of concern for the environment so large that it would
shake up the political establishment and force this issue
onto the national agenda said Gay lord Nelson, Earth
Day founder. "It was a gamble, but it worked
As Earth Day 2000 approaches, the celebrations will
focus on the beginning of the new millennium and fo-
cus on the need for clean energy, according to Denis
Hayes, National Coordinator of the first Earth Day and
Chair of the Earth Day Network.

Festival dedicated to perfect pig
Great PurpleCold Pigskin
Pigout Party celebrates local flavor

FEATURES EDITOR
Jamie and Paxton Thigpen are all smiles at the PurpleGold Pigskin Pigout Party,

Carnival rides, prize booths and shag music served
as a backdrop for the heart of the annual celebration
devoted to one thing: the pursuit of a perfect plate of
barbecue.
Chefs and amateurs alike came from all over east-
ern North Carolina to show off their pig-cooking skills
and help raise money for ECU. Booths were decorated
with everything from Wild West building fronts (con-
structed on a miniature scale) to pig paraphernalia to a
mock ECU bus. It wasn't the props that caught your
eye, but the free food.
"Have some fried turkey and catfish "Have you
eaten yet? We got some great hushpuppies and "All
these cupcakes have got to be eaten by somebody were
only a few of the things people said to get us to stuff
ourselves with their food. For many, the Great Purple
Gold Pigskin Pigout Party is an all-night party, centered
around one pig on the cooker and friends watching it
cook.
"We come out here, have a party and invite all our
friends said John Wormell, ECU alumnus and
Greenville Utilities Commission technician.
Although it is a party, there is still an element of
competition in every group.
"Our pig should win 'cause we sat here all night
and cooked it Wormell said. "It takes a lot of Captain
Morgan to cook a pig
Wormell said he comes out for fun, competition
and good barbecue, but his daughter Kersti Wormell
knows the real reason Daddy and his friends come.
"They're drinking beer Kersti
Wormell said.
ECU faculty and current stu-
dents came out as well for the party.
Frank Salaman, the director of din-
ing services, said he came out be-
cause his neighbor was cooking a
pig, but the idea of being sur-
rounded by North Carolina barbe-
cue perked his interest as well.
"I love North Carolina BBQ be-
cause it tastes good Salaman said.
"This is an excellent event, and my
family and I are having a great
time
One ECU student, junior James
Tatum, found the Great Purple
Gold Pigskin Pigout Party with the
shag music and fried turkey unique.
"It was a very interesting cul-
tural experience from eastern North
Carolina Tatum said.
Whether you went for the fire-
works, rides that put centrifugal
force to new and sickening uses,
game booth venders who have an
entirely different perception of the
word small and the meaning of a
dollar or all the food, the Great
PurpleGold Pigskin Pigout Party
was truly a snapshot of the culture
of eastern North Carolina.

FEATURES EDITOR
The grounds of the Great Pirate PurpfeGold Pig-
skin Pigout Party is dotted with various vender booths,
metal barrel pig cookers, food tables and a band booth
Pink and white, shiny stainless steel utensils sur-
rounded by hundreds of inanimate pigs can be found
at the booth of Leslie Deaton II, award-winning barbe-
cue chef.
What is the secret to Deaton's delicious barbecue?
According to him, the sauce and the presentation of
the meat is what takes the prize every time.
"We can cook a pretty pig Deaton said. "It's got to
have a crisp skin, and the meat has got to be moist.
The sauce is real important, too.
"If I told you what's in the sauce, I'd have to kill
you Deaton said. We've been working at it, trial and
error, for three years now
In Deaton's opinion, the best sauce is mild, not to
spicy but with a good strong flavor. Considering the
judges' overtaxed palates, that is understandable.
"My sauce is mild; I don't really like a hot or spicy
sauce Deaton said. "The judges like a real mild sauce.
They have to taste 40 or SO plates of BBQ
Beyond his barbecue passion, Deaton is a project
engineer in Roanoke Rapids, N.C. He began entering
in pig cooking contests seven years ago, after a friend
asked him to build a pig cooker.
"I built a cooker for somebody else because they
talked me into it, and then I figured I might as well
build one for myself Deaton said.
The pig cooker he uses, which took him three years
to build, is surrounded by little pigs. Ceramic, plastic,
stuffed and glass; he's got all types. He didn't start the
collection because he had a passion for little toy pigs;
it started itself.
"Well, it seems like every holiday, that's what I get
now Deaton said. "Everybody gets me pigs
Barbecue cooking is addictive, according to Deaton.
His only warning for anyone considering starting their
own barbecue grill is not to get hooked because it Is
habit forming. Deaton has been cooking up his special
barbecue for four years, and by now, he's got a good
thing going. He took second out of 85 contestants last
weekend, and he is looking forward to a good finish in

anyone who has never tried eastern North Carolina
barbecue and looks on split-open pigs with apprehen-
sion instead of salivating with delight and anticipa-
tion, Deaton has a little of his expert opinion to share.
"I've had it all all the types of barbecue, and I like
this the best Deaton said. "I like the taste of it. I eat
mine with coleslaw and hushpuppies �
Deaton and his son Leslie Deaton III will probably
be back next year to cook again. If you have a craving;
for some moist barbecue with mild sauce for your pat-
ate and a cute array of piggy paraphernalia for your
eyes, the Deaton booth is the place to stop.

ASK MARJ0RIE
EARTH
from page 6
Dear Marjorie,
I think my
roommate might
be pregnant. We have been living
together since August, I would
never say that she was promiscuous,
but she has been dating this guy for
a while and lately they have been
fighting a lot. That's not why I think
she's pregnant though.
I think she may be pregnant be-
cause she wears jumpers, big
sweatshirts and other clothes trying
to hide a little extra weight, but she
doesn't eat anything! She even
drinks pickle brine because someone
told her that it had negative calo-
ries to help her lose weight. She
sleeps at random hours, and she
never has enough energy to do any-
thing. How can I approach her with-
out causing a huge fight?
-Pregnant Pauses
Dear Pregnant Pauses,
This is one situation that I
would wait for your roommate to
come to you with the issue rather
than you going to her. If she is up-
set about the fact that she Is preg-
nant or if she is considering an
abortion, she probably doesn't
want anyone, including her room-
mate to know.
In many families, a pregnancy
outside of wedlock is still consid-
ered disgraceful, so this is an issue
that must be handled with sensi-
tivity and gentleness. Your curios-
ity is not worth her emotions right
now, so wait and she'll tell you
when she's ready.
Dear Marjorie,
My roommate has moved in
with her boyfriend, and she's never
here anymore. All of her friends
know, but she still hasn't told her
parents. They call for her constantly,
but she's never here. She tells us to
lie to her mom and dad for her. I
still have some morals left, and this
really bothers me. I don't want to
lie anymore.
-Compelling Conscience
Dear Compelling Conscience,
How much do you like7our
roommate? The only reason I ask is
if you really don't like her much,
this situation is easily remedied.
Leave her parents hints like "We
haven't seen her for a couple of
days" and "she's really been seeing
a lot of that Nick-guy and eventu-
ally they will stop calling for her.
You could also ask her to get a sec-
ond line and have all the calls for-
warded to his house, and that way
her parents would be none the
wiser.
Really though, if mom and dad
have called at random times like 5
in the morning and their daughter
is not there, do you think that they
are so naive to believe that she is
just studying or running early that
day? Mom and dad probably al-
ready know, so by lying to them still
you are just hurting your reputation
and continuing the annoying calls.
Put an end to it with the truth.
If you have any questions
or queries contact Marjorie at
marjorie@tec. ecu. edu.
"Earth Day has always been
about everyday people taking ac-
tion in their own communities for
a cleaner, healthier environment
Hayes said. "This year, with hun-
dreds of millions of people around
the world participating in the big-
gest Earth Day yet, we will take real
steps toward a cleaner, healthier
environment for our future
Although" there are many ideas
for improving the environment,
such as alternative energy sources
and waste disposal, nothing will
happen without people's participa-
tion. This may sound overwhelming,
but there are many simple things
that people can do everyday to take
steps towards a cleaner Earth. Cam-
pus activism has been a key con-
tributor to the successes of the envi-
ronmental movement, according to
the Earth Day Network, so get in-
volved a little or get involved a lot,
but do get involved.

team next season, they will have
'powerhouse kickers after this

17th overall pick and punter

ventional draft picks.
Surprisingly, quarterback Joe

was the 234th overall pick. He
wasn't picked by the Bucs until
the 7th round.

nia student who posted com-
ments from New York Mets man-
ager Bobby Valentine's talk at

post would end up in the hand
"the vast media, I would never

The ECU football team held
their final scrimmage of the
2000 spring practice period Sat-
urday at a very wet Dowdy-
Ficklen Stadium. The team prac-
ticed for 75 minutes under a
sometimes driving rain.
"It was a little sloppy with the
rain said quarterback David
Garrard. "Coming out here in
front of the crowd, some of the
younger guys are a little ner-
vous, but I think everybody
came out here and played hard
today. I think everybody played
to the best of their abilities and
I was proud of every one of
them
They began the scrimmage
with a game pitting the first-
team offense against the first-
team defense. The highlight of
the day came when running
back Jamie Wilson broke free for
a 58-yard touchdown on the
third play from scrimmage.
"It was zone left Wilson
said. "Our guys got their hats on
the right people and a couple
of people missed
Wilson finished the day with
77 yards on eight carries.
Another key moment in the
contest came when quarterback
Richard Alston hit Marcellus
Harris for a 44-yard touchdown
strike. Also providing some fire-
works in the passing game was
Garrard. Garrard went 7-of-14
for 77 yards, including a 16-yard
touchdown pass to Torey Mor-
ris. Alston finished the day 8-of-
16 for 105 yards.
"I was happy to see the big
plays, and I was glad to see the
guys make big plays Garrard
said. "Of course there was some
misfortune, but the defense has
got to make plays too
For the defense, John
Williamson intercepted a pass
and returned it 31 yards for a
score.
"We've done a lot of good
things; what you don't want to
see is one unit dominate the
other said Head Coach Steve
Logan. "I think you saw today
that it was a back and forth
event. Hopefully, this means that
we will be competitive on both
sides of the ball this year
The scrimmage marked the
end of the Pirates' spring drills.
The next time the teams will
practice will be in August when
they start their preseason drills.

Buffalo Sabres tans are still
ruffled over last Friday's no-goal
controversy. With the Sabres
down 2-0 in their first-round play-
off series with Philadelphia, fans
were all abuzz about John
LeClafrV goal that led to the Fly-
ers 2-1 win.
The controversy stemmed
from the fact that the no-goal call
was allowed to stand even after
video footage proved that the
puck entered through a hole in
the side of the net.

Last weekend's road trip
ended on a positive note for the
ECU baseball team as they
notched their first away wins
against Richmond since 1994.
In Friday's match up the Pi-
rates would get on the board
first, with RBI singles in the early
innings by Nick Schnabel and
John Williamson. The Spiders
offense would answer in the bot-
tom of the third with a two-run
homer by Matt Craig, which
then made the score 3-2.
Each team would add one
more run in the middle innings,
but the story would be told in
the eighth inning as Spider hit-
ter Vito Chiaravalloti homered
to make the final score Spiders
6, Pirates 3.
The Pirates would finally put
an end to their non-winning
ways in Richmond on Sunday.
Due to the circumstances of bad
weather on Saturday the two
teams would have to wait until
Sunday,to finish the series in a
double header. ECU swept both
games from the Spiders in seem-
ingly easy fashion.
"We played pretty well
throughout the weekend, but
most of all the team showed a
lot of character said Foye

Pirates.

could have given up, but we did
a good job on Sunday and

Sunday, ECU was tamed until
the seventh inning when the
flood gates were opened where

victory.

end, and really for Sunday, was

Delfino, the shortstop for the
team had a spectacular game
racking up five hits in five trips
to the plate and collecting his
fourth home run of the season.
John Williamson would homer in
the eighth inning, killing any
rally hopes for Richmond and
granting ECU the 10-6 win.
"I thought we played much
better offensively on Sunday
Williamson said. "Being able to
rally gave us a lift and allowed
us to continue in the second
game
Pitcher Jason Mandryk picked
up his fourth win, and has yet to
lose an outing, as Cory Scott got
his second save of the day.
"In the second game we had
the same approach as the first
LeClair said. "We did some good
offensive things in the game and
got good pitching we got good
pitching from starters and the
bullpen on a long, hot day that
took its toll
The wins boosted the Pirates'
record to 32-10 overall, and 9-3
in the CAA. They host arch rival
UNC-Chapel Hill on Tuesday.

Baseball team to face Tarheels tonight
Jitters soothed by
win over Richmond
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS EDITOR
Tonight at Harrington Field,
ECU will play host to North
Carolina. The Pirates, ranked
21st in this weeks polls, will
put their 32-10 record on the
line against the 12th ranked
Tarheels.
"It's going to be a big game,
there's going to be a lot more
people at the game, but we've
got to take it as just another
game said second baseman
Nick Schnabel. "It's Carolina, it's
a big game, but it's just one win
or one loss
The Pirates are coming off of
a sweep of Richmond this week-
end, in which ECU regained first
place in the CAA. The sweep
should give the Pirates momen-
tum heading into their clash
with the Tarheels.
"We need to get ready to
play a tough game on Tuesday
against North Carolina said
Head Coach Keith LeClair. "The
fans make this out to be the
game of the year, but its just
another game that we have to
prepare to win. It is not a do-
or-die situation but we need to
continue what we got started
Sunday and keep the momen-
tum rolling our way
ECU beat Carolina last sea-
son, 8-6 in Greenville. The
game drew a season-high 2,810
fans. Still, LeClair and the team
downplay the importance of
this game.
"It's another game LeClair
said. "I think the fans make it
out to be bigger than what it
really is. Obviously every game
from here on out is important.
It's important to get as many
quality wins as we can so we
can earn a regional berth, and
that just happens to be the
next game after this weekend
"We've played Carolina be-
fore, and we've played in front
of a lot of people before so it
shouldn't change anything
said infielder Joseph Hastings.
A large crowd is expected
for tonight's game that will
also be broadcast on WITN-7.
"It's going to change the at-
mosphere a little, Schnabel
said. "There's going to be some
more intensity, but it's just
another game and you've got
to go out there and play
"Playing in front of people
doesn't matter. Last year in
Baton Rouge, we played in
front of 8,000 people, Hastings
said. "Last year the Carolina
game had almost 3,000 people
there. So there's going to be
some electricity in the air, but
we won't change anything

Sabres face elimination in first round
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP)-So much for the theory that the Philadel-
phia Flyers can be distracted by controversy
Seemingly thriving on one dispute after another, the Flyers
are one win away from a four-game playoff sweep of the Buffalo
Sabres following Sunday's 2-0 victory.
"What our team does an excellent job of is forgetting about
what s past, forgetting about what's in the future but only think-
ing about this game Flyers interim head coach Craig Ramsay
said "In our minds, our guys weren't thinking about the last game,
or the game before that or anything else. Just about tonight
Sunday night, then, was a thing to behold. John LeClair's first-
period power-play goal stood up as the game-winner. Rookie goalie
Brian Boucher stopped 17 shots to record his first playoff shut-
out, and Mark Recchi sealed the efficient victory, scoring into an
empty net.
In other NHL playoff games, New Jersey took a two-game se-
ries lead by beating Florida 2-1 and Edmonton beat Dallas 5-2 to
draw within 2-1 in that first-round series in the Western Confer-
ence.
The Flyers are in control going into Game 4, Tuesday at Buf-
falo. One more win and Philadelphia will advance to the second
round for the first time since reaching the Stanley Cup finals in
1997.
The Sabres face elimination, one year after they reached the
finals.
Only two teams � the 1975 New York Islanders and the 1942
Toronto Maple Leafs � have rallied from a 3-0 deficit in NHL
playoff history.
The Flyers have been resilient and composed, having over-
come many potential land mines, including: the status of deposed
captain Eric Lindros, out with a concussion; the status of coach
Roger Neilson, recovering from cancer treatment; and questions
over starting Boucher over veteran John Vanbiesbrouck.
Sunday, the Flyers overcame another controversy, the phan-
tom goal LeClair scored through a hole in the mesh of the net in
Friday's 2-1 victory.
It's the Sabres that look rattled, stymied by the Flyers who
have allowed just three goals in three games.
"Defensively, we were okay goalie Dominik Hasek said. "Of-
fensively, it's hard to win if you don't score goals. It's a difficult
situation
Ripken enjoys No. 3,000 with family
MINNEAPOLIS (AP)-Cal Ripken really wanted to reach 3,000
hits at Camden Yards. At least he felt right at home at the
Metrodome.
"I felt that I was one of the hometown players last night and
I want to stay thank you very, very much for that Ripken told
the crowd during pregame ceremonies Sunday.
The Baltimore Orioles star received a two-minute ovation af-
ter he singled off Minnesota Twins reliever Hector Carrasco in
the seventh inning Saturday night, becoming the 24th member
of the 3,000-hit club.
Ripken got to share the special moment with family and
friends.
"I don't know the secrets of life Ripken said. "But it sure
means a lot more when you have a family to share it with
Ripken celebrated the milestone with his wife, Kelly, and their
two children, Rachel, 10, and Ryan, 6, who traveled to Minnesota
for the weekend series.
"It was a nice, private moment with my small family Ripken
said. "We went out to eat. One of my kids fell asleep at the restau-
rant. 1 guess they were drained, too
Ripken was still weary Sunday, so manager Mike Hargrove gave
him the day off.
"I felt exhausted this morning, mentally Ripken said after
signing autographs for more than an hour. "I felt good, I felt re-
lieved, all those things. I haven't really reflected on the 3,000
hits. I never played the game for the big, round numbers. They've
seemed to accumulate by showing up every day
Ripken, already renowned for playing a record 2,632 con-
secutive games, singled three times in Baltimore's 6-4 victory
over the Twins on Saturday night.
While his hometown fans would rather have seen him make
history at home, Ripken said he wasn't about to take a seat still
shy of 3,000.
"I always feel an obligation not to mess with the game of
baseball and how it's supposed to be played he said.
When Ripken rounded the bag following the historic hit, the
first one to greet him was Orioles first-base coach, former team-
mate and longtime friend Eddie Murray, who got his 3,000th
hit at the same stadium in 1995 while playing for Cleveland.
