New bus route
to arrive shortly
Carolyn Herold
The ECU transit department is planning a new bus route to
possibly be unveiled during the second summer session. The
request for the bus was brought up by the transit manage-
UNLINl SURVEY ment in resP�nse to ;l need they perceived for .1 more pedes-
trian-friendly campus.
"We are a growing campus with a growing parking prob-
lem said transit adviser Scott Alford.
This new route is scheduled to make a 20 minute circuit
around the main campus. The bus will circle between 5th
and 10th streets, and between 1st and Reade streets.
"This bus is intended for our normal faculty, staff and stu-
dents as well as visitors Alford said.
"In theory, I think the new route is a good idea. Until we
run it, 1 won't know for sure said Tyler Bryan, ECU bus driver.
The funding for the bus came from student fees and the
parking permits for the faculty and staff cars. The new bus
has already been purchased; delivery is expected any day.
When the bus arrives, it will be painted with a design to be
decided upon by the transit managers.
Do you think the proposed
bus route is a good idea?
Do you think ECU should adopt a fire safety
84 Yes 15 No

"(It will be) something the school will be proud of said
Robert White, ECU transit manager.
The new styled bus is built to take the strenuous demands
that will be placed on it. The bus was designed in England,
by English engineers and engineers from the Thomas com-
pany. The bus, model SLF 200, is smaller than our current
busses, about 30 feet, whereas the others busses ECU uses are
40 feet long.
The SLF has a low floor design, which means there will be
no step to get on the bus. It has a curb-hugging design, and it
can kneel down to nine inches for more ease in entering and
exiting the bus. The SLF also has a ramp that shoots out of
the front door and wide front and rear doors for handicapped
passengers, making the bus more wheelchair accessible. The
bus has a tighter turning radius, which makes taking some of
the tight turns easier.
The aisles are wider than the old busses, with seats that
face toward the aisles in the front part of the bus, and for-
ward-facing seats on a raised platform in the rear. There are
also four-point forward-facing wheelchair placements under
flip-up seats in the middle. The SLF also has large tinted-
glass windows all around the bus, for better visibility for both
the driver and the passengers.
"This shuttle will be constantly moving. It will give more
options for students and staff White said.

"Click it or Ticket" wraps up in NC
Stats show college students are
pulled in their hometowns
Nancy Kuck
Click it or Ticket Statistics
for N.C. counties
To help enforce the concept of using seat belts,
North Carolina law enforcement officers con-
ducted a campaign known as "Click it or Ticket"
between May 15 and June 4. The goal of this cam-
paign was to boost suitability use in North Caro-
lina, in essence saving lives and preventing inju-
ries that could occur during car crashes.
"I think that there has been a tremendous
change in Greenville since the campaign started
in 1993 and it can be seen statistically said Capt.
John Ennis, of the Greenville Police Department.
"Back in 1993, suitability usage was only 53 per-
cent but since we became involved in enforcing
usage, the percentage has increased to 93 percent
Seat belt checkpoints were set up at random
throughout the state. One checkpoint was held
in Pitt County.
"The officers (at the checkpoint), and hundreds
more currently on patrol, will make sure drivers
throughout North Carolina understand that
buckling up is more than a good idea says Joe
Parker, director of Governor's Highway Safety
program. "It's the law, and it's one they are pre-
pared to enforce

lations will not be tolerated during this campaign.
The "Click it or Ticket" campaign does not dis-
criminate against drivers who attend universities.
"I wouldn't say that this campaign is more tar-
geted to the university student Ennis said. "They
are prone to not wearing a suitability but it is just
like everyone else
"I cannot tell you that college students are more
apt to being pulled said Jill Lucas, public informa-
tion officer for the State of North Carolina Depart-
ment of Transportation. "The typical offender is be-
tween the age of 18-35, but in reality between the
age of 18-24 so that would be college age, however,
looking at the statistics listed from last week when
students are home, we can say that if a college stu-
dent is getting pulled, it is in their hometown
The results of the campaign indicate Wake County
had 525 suitability violations, while Pitt County re-
ceived only 139.
"I don't want you to interpret that certain coun-
ties have an unbelievable amount of violations; we
have an unbelievable law enforcement Lucas said.
Along with ticketing unbuckled drivers, law en-
forcement officers will be on the lookout for seat
belt violations involving children. It is North Caro-
lina state law that anyone under the age of 16 must
be buckled and that children who are under the age
of 5 and who weigh less than 40 pounds ride in a
car seat.

ECU to offer public health degree
ia rt-
; we
in a
Master's program to
benefit N.C citizens
Missie Thompson
ECU is attempting to add a
new master's degree program for
health-care professionals. The
Master of Public Health Degree
program is currently awaiting
authorization from the Univer-
sity of North Carolina (UNC)
According to Dr. Chris
Mansfield, associate professor
director at the Center for Health
Services at the Brody School of
Medicine (BSOM), the citizens of
eastern North Carolina are not as
healthy as they should be due to
unhealthy lifestyles; in fact, they
are one of the least proficient ar-
"Unsolved health problems in
North Carolina and an absence
of appropriate public health-care
within the region have brought
about a need for such a degree
Mansfield said.
Public health practitioners are
in demand to help teach and
encourage healthy lifestyles
around the state. With this in
mind, interest on the medical
programs ECU carries is raised.
"There is a strong need to in-
corporate public health in medi-
cine Mansfield said.
Last year alone, there were over
200 vacancies in the public
health care sector. There are only
two other universities in North
Carolina that currently offer
training programs for this degree.
They are the University of North
Carolina-Chapel Hill and the
University of North Carolina-
Greensboro. These two programs
are not enough, especially with
the demand on health care our
region requires.
A proposal for authorization of
the program must be received by
January 2001 in order to estab-
lish the degree at ECU.
"At this time they are work-
ing on a request implement (pro-
posal for authorization); it then
has to be approved by the UNC
Board said Jane Martin, infor-
mation and communications
specialist for the BSOM.
A planning committee for the
new program was established in
February 1998. The 25 member
committee is comprised of rep-
resentatives of the surrounding
health care community as well as
representatives from the nine
colleges and universities on the
UNC board. Dr. Trenton Davis,
professor of environmental
health and safety, is the co-chair
of the planning committee.
"They have been working on
a proposal (for authorization) for
over a year Martin said.
The Master of Public Health
Degree Program has been as-
sessed at approximately
S57O,00O-$800,O00 a year. ECU
intends to generate approxi-
mately 25 graduates with a
master's degree in public health
every three years.

Artist wins right to hold nude mass photo shoot
NEW YORK (AP) - Flabby, thin, tattooed, pierced, pale,
sunburned, dark, and hairy, 150 people posed nude Sun-
day under the Williamsburg Bridge shortly after sun-
The mass disrobing by the East River was for a photo
session viewed by many as a symbol of artistic freedom.
"This is a victory for myself and for any contempo-
rary artist working with the body said photographer
Spencer Tunick.
The art was quite a spectacle: A mass of bodies evok-
ing a hilly landscape shaded in the tones of human flesh.
But the gritty reality of a city street turned the mod-
els' bare feet black in minutes, and "lying on the gravel
was cold - and it hurts said Marian Rutenberg, 25,
who was jogging by when she "New York should be a
consensual adult Disneyland. If you don't want it to
be that way, go live in Kansas. It's so obviously a First
Amendment right. There's no reason this should ever
have been stopped

thing the community's doing, to be outside without
your clothes on said Keith Battle, 21, who described
his occupation as "dealing drugs, but only liberating
"It was electric fun John Michael Koroly, 37, who
works in publishing. "You're completely naked but
you feel safe, with absolutely no embarrassment
Tunick sued the city last summer after dozens of
officers showed up at a photo shoot location to ar-
rest the participants. Tunick canceled the session and
claimed in court that his constitutional rights had
been violated.
The city argued that New York law criminalizes
public nudity, but Tunick maintained that state law

The CAA cut
one of its
most visible
programs out
of the title
picture and
itself from the
mobile Pirate
fan base.
When ECU announced it would begin to play in
Conference-USA in the fall of 2001, no one knew how
ECU's old conference, the Colonial Athletic Associa-
tion (CAA), would respond.
In December CAA announced that ECU would not
be welcomed back into CAA play during the 2000-
01 season. This measure is for no other reason but
posturing; the CAA cut one of its most visible pro-
grams out of the title picture and separated itself from
the mobile Pirate fan base.
In the months following ECU's decision to leave,
two more schools, American University and the Uni-
versity of Richmond, also decided to leave. Because
of the severity of the CAA's reaction toward ECU's
departure, the conference was left having to cut all
three schools out of the conference next season.
The CAA will now have to face the consequences.
It's severe action has left the association fighting to
survive in a college sports landscape where revenue
flow is all important and those who can't maintain it
don't survive.

O.J. wants your money
Does anyone have $3 million to
put up so that O.J. Simpson can take
a lie detector test? 1 know 1 don't,
but 1 am interested to see if anyone
is willing do this. It seems that O.J
who claims he is innocent of killing
his wife and her friend, wants some-
one to put up $3 million before he
will take a lie detector. If he passes
the test, the money will be put up
for 'reward' when the real killer is
brought forth. If O.J. fails, then all
of the money will be returned. Just
what kind of B.S. is this?
O.J. has had his trial, during which
he said all he wanted to do was find
the real killers and get on with his
life. Well, why hasn't he started look-
ing yet? It seems to me he has had
plenty of time to hire someone to
find out what really happened that
night. Maybe he does not want to
find out the truth, because he already
knows what happened!
As for someone putting up the
money, you would have to be crazy.
You are in a no-win situation. Lie de-
tectors are not accurate; they can't
always tell when a person is lying
and when they aren't. Besides, who's
to say that O.J. may or may not keep
the money for himself?
My belief is simple-let O.J. or
whomever killed these people suffer
in their own misery. One day the
truth will come out. And, if you have
$3 million you want to throw away,
give it to me. I'll need it when the
tuition here increases!

that there is an amendment that al-

My advice to those of you who are

people are looking at you. You could
be offending someone (especially if
you have more rolls than a bakery).
Realize that you are putting your-

Do not overlook cruelties in Chechnya
While the western world has enjoyed con-
siderable amount of peace in the last few de-
cades, the eastern part of the world always
seems to be torn by war. It appears as if stabil-
ity and peace in this world is not possible.
Whether it's the Middle East, Russia or South-
east Asia, some injustice is always taking place.
The current war in Chechnya seems to be one
of the best examples of injustice and cruelty
in the post-world war era.
The Russian government claims that
Chechnya belongs to them, while Chechnya
claims otherwise, and they want to keep their
freedom and independence. The motivation
for war is coming from a political point of view.
If Putin can win the war and wipe out as many
Chechens as possible, he will not only become
more popular, but he can also seal his victory
for reelection. Thus, the war is purely political
and unnecessary.
Human rights groups have continued to con-
demn Russia's actions in Chechnya from the
beginning. Amnesty, a London-based human
rights organization, has called again and again
for an international investigation into many
allegations of torture, murder, rape and bru-
tality committed by the Russian army. While
Russia had promised to provide safe routes out
of Chechnya for the innocent civilians, they
have put snipers at these locations and have
killed most people trying to leave. The people
of Chechnya had no choice but to stay in their
homes and at the same time they were told
that if they did not leave, they would be killed
by the air raids.
It seems that when other countries commit
mass atrocities, they do not go unnoticed.
China has been condemned worldwide for its
brutal oppression, and it would appear that
some sort of action had been taken when Yu-
goslavia committed mass murder and torture
in Kosovo. When Iraq invaded Kuwait, the
world took notice, and to this day Iraq can-
not sell its oil for money and still has other
pending sanctions. However, no action has
been taken when Russia attacks another inde-
pendent and peaceful country. The World
Bank continues to make large loans to Russia
while aid from the United States hasn't de-
creased a bit.
No sanctions have been put on Russia and
Russians leaders are welcomed into other
countries with open arms and much hospi-
tality. Russia has been given clearance to do
as it wishes without any consequences, even
if that means committing genocide.
Today, Russian camp guards are torturing,
beating and raping Chechens at filtration
camps inside Chechnya. This is similar to what
Hitler conducted during his reign of terror.
According to the executive director of the
Europe and Central Asia Division Human
Rights Watch, "what is happening in these
filtration camps is unspeakable. The Russians
must not get away with committing these
But it seems as if they are the only ones con-
demning the Russians. The world needs to
come together against this type of cruelty.
If this is allowed to happen today, then it
will continue to happen to different groups
of people. We cannot sit back and watch. We
need to send a clear and strong message that
we will not tolerate this. Everyone involved-
from the leaders down to the last soldier re-
sponsible-needs to be punished severely, oth-
erwise this is not likely to stop anytime soon.
The guilty cannot be allowed to continue to
live as if nothing happened. However, it seems
that no matter what, the only time foreign
intervention takes place is when countries
have some type of interest as well. For now,
the world just continues to sit and watch-as
if this could never happen to them.

CELINA, Term. (AP)-A jail
inmate who escaped from
the Clay County Courthouse
reminded General Sessions
Court Judge Jimmy White
why he should never leave his
keys in his car.
David Henry snatched
White's vehicle from the
parking area outside of the
courthouse last Friday before
White was to hear auto theft
charges against the 30-year-
old Monterey man.
Henry had managed to take
off the shackles on his hands
and feet while Sheriff Jerry
Rhoton left the second-floor
courtroom to visit a first-floor
White didn't know his car was
missing until court ended
later in the day.
The judge will still have his
day in court with Henry,
though�this time as a victim.
Henry was arrested Tuesday
in Nashville when police spot-
ted him driving the judge's
car at about 1:20 a.m. with-
out the lights on.
Henry was being held in a
Nashville Jail on a bail of
self-described animal lover
who tried to pet a leopard at
Bloomington's Miller Park
Zoo Tuesday got more than
he bargained for-a bite on
the hand.
Zoo Superintendent John
Tobias said a snow leopard bit
28-year-old Brian Carrie, who
had to hop a four-foot bar-
rier to put his hand in the
outdoor cage.
Carrie was taken to BroMenn
Regional Medical Center with
four deep cuts on his hand,
said Bloomington firefighter
Matt Bozarth. He was treated
and released.
Bozarth said Carrie had alco-
hol on his breath and a bottle
of liquor with him at the zoo.
Tobias said he would look into
putting up "no petting signs"
at the zoo, but said that
should be common sense.
Carrie told Bozarth that he
pet the leopard because he
was an animal lover. He said
another leopard became jeal-
ous and attacked him.

The East Carolinian 7
! "Survivor"
Emily Little
Welcome to "The
Real World: Gilligan's
Island The most
novel creation since
"Road Rules CBS's
new show, "Survivor !
has all the emotional
roller coasters of MTV's
living soap operas, but
without the good music
and the sex and the
drinking. Instead, it has
people eating live grubs
and wading through leech-
infested swamps.
In case you haven't had
the opportunity to catch the
show, it begins with two
groups of castaways, marooned
on opposite sides of an island by
a network television station.
With their handful of supplies,
they work together to provide
themselves with basic necessities
on a daily basis. At the end of the
week, the two tribes meet for a
competition that involves some
remarkable feat of human toler-
ance. That night, the losing team
Fortunately, they
will probably lose their enthusiasm be-
fore we do. (World Wide Web photos)
must vote one of its members off
the island. The last one standing
is the winner.
This show is a testimonial to
the human spirit. Since the
length of a person's stay on the
island is dependent on his or her
ability to contribute positively to
the survival of the group, work-
ing hard and being nice be-
comes the most important
I thing. Surprisingly enough,
, most of the people on the
; show have managed to do
i that.
In general, this show has a
S lot to offer. Despite its copy-
cat appearance, "Survivor"
brings a fresh take to the
'real-life' genre of televi-
sion. Unlike the planted
conflicts set up in any MTV
group home, these castaways
seem to have more important
things to think about. The Navy
Seal, for instance, turned out not
to be homophobic. He wasn't ex-
actly overjoyed with the idea of
sharing a tent with a gay man,
but he didn't seem too disturbed
by it. How refreshing.
This is a smart move for CBS.
While other stations are obsess-
ing over dark trivia game shows,
they've taken the whole thing a
step further. There is no 'lifeline'
on the CBS island.
There's only the
people you brought
with you, and that is
what makes the
whole thing so inter-
esting. That probably
means we'll see a simi-
lar show called "Cast-
away or something
on Fox pretty soon.
"Survivor" airs at 8
p.m. on Wednesdays.

San Frandsco
49er quarter-
back, Steve
Young an-
nounced his re-
tirement from football in a
press conference Monday in
San Francisco.
Young, 38, played IS sea-
sons for the Niners, after be-
ing drafted by the Tampa Bay
Buccaneers following his col-
lege career at Brigham Young.
Young replaced 49er legend
Joe Montana and won his lone
Super Bowl as a starter In 1995,
defeating the San Diego
Chargers 49-26. Young cap-
tured the coveted Super Bowl
MVP award in the game as
Young also won the NFL
MVP award twice as the Niner
signal caller.
Young suffered multiple
concussions In the past few
seasons, the most recent of
which came in a September
game against the Arizona Car-
dinals. The blow kept htm out
for the remainder of the sea-
Young made a name for
himself as a gifted passer and
as an
threat on
t h e
rushed for
43 touch-
downs in
his career,
the most
by an NFL quarterback.
Young also left his name on
the NFL record books by be-
ing one half of the most pro-
lific passing tandem in NFL
history. Young and receiver
Jerry Rice connected for a
record 85 touchdowns.
Young recently married the
former Barbara Graham and
the couple are expecting their
first child later in the year.
"in many ways, what lies
ahead for me is more impor-
tant than what I leave be-
hind said Young.
ECU senior second baseman Nick Schnabel was
made the 31 st round selection buy the Montreal Expos
in Thursday's Major League Baseball Draft.
The Expos selected the Martinez, Calif, native
with the 915th overall pick on the draft's sec-
ond day.
"I'm pretty excited about it Schnabel said.
Schnabel came to ECU from Ohlone Junior
College in California before the 1999 season.
In his first season with the Pirates Schnabel was
third on the team with a .357 batting average
and tied the ECU single season record for
doubles with 20. Schnabel also owns
two other ECU school records: 14
sacrifice bunts and 176 assists
in the 1999 season.
Schnabel was voted the
CAA Defensive Player of
the Year in 1999 as well.
This season Schnabel
was named to the All-CAA
First-Team. He hit .308 with 23 RBIs and 12 stolen bases. Schnabel
also committed only nine errors out of 324 chances for an impres-
sive .972 fielding percentage.
More impressive than his individual achievements was the un-
precedented success the Pirates experienced during Schnabel's ca-
"I was looking in the paper and I saw that we were the first team
to win more than 90
games over two seasons and
the first to win over 40 games two
years in a row Schnabel said. "It's
nice to know we did something
In addition to the winning reci
Schnabel's team racked up, there were als
of CAA Championships and two trips to the NCAA
Regionals. Yflft
Schnabel was part of a senior class that featured i(flMM'
can closer Cory Scott as well as Pirate mainstays Eric Bakich,
Jeremy Schumacher and James Molinari.

Montreal affiliate in the Gulf Coast Rookie League, will

"The Montreal organization doesn't do a lot through

players a better chance to make it ElIA
Schnabel is one of four players with Pitt County tits to be
drafted. Pitt Community College's Freddie Bynuw wasecteUh
the second round by the Oakland Athletics. Fellow Btilldog t�u

while former North Pitt Standout Demetrius "Meatball" Heath

Devils capture Stanley Cup
DALLAS (AP)-Five overtimes
in two cities in three nights. No
wonder the New Jersey Devils
were almost too tired to lift the
Stanley Cup.
Jason Arnott ripped a shot
from the left circle past Dallas
goaltender Ed Belfour 8:20 into
the second overtime, ending a
second consecutive tension-
filled overtime game-and the
Stars' Stanley Cup run-with a
2-1 Devils victory Saturday
Arnott one-timed Parrik Elias'
no-look pass as the Devils pre-
vented the Stars from forcing a
Game 7 Monday in New Jersey
and won their second Cup in
six seasons.
Because the Devils wouldn't
lose on the road to Dallas-they
were 3-0 in Reunion Arena - the
Stanley Cup has a new home.
The Stars, who won the Cup on
the road in Game 6 last year in
Buffalo, lost it in Game 6 at
It was the third time in five
years the Cup was won in over-
time, and the fourth time in
five years the Cup has been won
on the road.
Devils goaltender Martin
Brodeur ended his record-tying
seven-game overtime playoff los-
ing streak by making 30 saves,
while Belfour-one of the heroes
of the Stars' exhausting 1-0,
three-overtime victory in Game
5-lost despite stopping 43 of 45
"This is an unbelievable feel-
ing said Brodeur, who had been
1-5 in multiple-overtime games.
"This time around, I think I real-
ized it a little more. And what
better way to stop that streak
It was the first time in the best-
of-seven era there have been
back-to-back multiple overtime
games in the finals.
Devils defenseman Scott
Stevens was named the Conn
Smythe Award winner as the
playoffs MVP.
"The Stars never gave up, you
have to give them credit. They
fought and fought Stevens said.
"I was telling everyone to play
hard for me. You don't get too
many chances, so I'm just enjoy-
ing this
Stevens joked that he was "al-
most too tired to lift the Cup"
following five overtimes in two
cities in only three nights.
As the Cup was handed to
Elias, he had injured linemate
Petr Sykora's jersey draped over
his shoulder. Sykora was carried
off on a stretcher with 12:08
gone, but was not believed to
be seriously injured.
The'Stars' fans were clearly
distraught at seeing the Cup
won on their ice, but most
stayed to cheer the post-game
presentation to Stevens by NHL
commissioner Gary Bettman.
"The games we had here were
really tough Stars center Mike
Modano said. "They're a great
team, outstanding. Those guys-
Brodeur, (Scott) Gomez,
Arnott-I know how they're
feeling. It's a great feeling
Many fans began cheering,

appreciation not only of two of
the most stirring overtime
games in recent Cup history,
but the excellent goaltending.

18-year run as owner-and,
likely, the start of another.

Rocker saga continues
Stephen Schramm
The dark comedy that is the
career of John Rocker took a turn
for the worst this week as the
behavior of the headline-grab-
bing Atlanta Braves' pitcher
"rocked" the sports world once
again. As usual, Rocker's thought-
less actions have not only set a
new, personal standard for stu-
pidity, but have put his liveli-
hood in jeopardy. As is also cus-
tomary, Rocker continues to
blame his misfortunes on every-
one but himself.
Rocker's eventful week began
with an angry clubhouse con-
frontation with "Sports Illus-
trated" (SI) writer Jeffrey Shelman
following a game with the New
York Yankees. Shelman is the
man whose interview became the
basis of the December "SI" article
in which Rocker blasted minori-
ties, homosexuals, immigrants
and New Yorkers, inciting a fire
storm of national controversy
and making Rocker a household
The drama continued with
Tuesday's announcement that
the Braves were optioning Rocker
to their AAA minor-league affili-
ate, the Richmond Braves. At-
lanta team management asserts
that the move was prompted by
Rocker's dismal performance
and, most notably, by his inabil-
ity to throw strikes. Rocker
amassed an abysmal 25 walks
versus only 27 strikeouts in 21
appearances this season. Al-
though Rocker had picked up 10
saves in 11 opportunities this sea-
son, his demotion was probably
hastened by his high 3.93 ERA
and shaky performances in
clutch situations.
Still, when star teammate Brian
Jordan describes you as a "can-
cer you've probably got more
issues to consider than just a lack-
luster slider.
Being the even-tempered, ra-
tional man that he is, Rocker re-
sponded to the news of his de-
motion in characteristic fashion.
He threatened not to report to
Richmond. He balked at the idea
of Retiring at age 25 and even
discussed the possibility of a ca-
reer as a stock broker (Hey John,
where do you think the exchange
is, anyway?).
Rocker finally capitulated and
joined the Richmond Braves for
their game with the Toledo Mud
Hens later in the week. In its his-
tory, Toledo had issued only
seven national media credentials
prior to this week. When the
news of the arrival of the John
Rocker show reached the press,
the number of credentials issued
boomed to over ninety.
While the story of Rocker's
demotion and contemplation of
retirement played out last week,
Rocker maintained a sense of
frustrated disbelief at his situa-
tion. Strangely, Rocker has never
been able to realize that he is re-
sponsible for his own negative
image. John Rocker needs to re-
alize that he is not special. If you
can't hack it in the bigs, you get
sent down. He couldn't. The only
reason anyone takes note of his
undistinguished performance is
because of his ability to comically
and publicly dramatize the depth
of his ignorance, an ignorance
that seems to be bottomless.
