Flouting under

laws, a high percentage of
college binge drinkers are
white males under 21
who find cheap or free al-
cohol at fraternity parties
or local bars, according to
a new study by the
Harvard School of Public-
Health.
The study, released
Monday, found students who are
, over 21 tend to drink more often,
but when underage students are
able to get alcohol, they are more
likely to drink heavily.
The study said 63 percent of un-
derage students had been drink-
ing at least once in the past 30
days, and 42 percent of those who
had been drinking downed at
least five drinks each time. In con-
trast, 74 percent of students 21 or
older said they had been drinking
in the past month, but only 27,
percent had five drinks or more.
The study polled more than
7,000 students who were under
21, and nearly 5,000 students who
were over 21, at 116 colleges
around the country.
"Students today come to college
expecting to drink said Henry
Wechsler, director of Harvard's
College Alcohol Studies Program.
"They think that's what you're
supposed to do in college, and
"Students today come to college ex-
pecting to drink said Henry Wechsler,

they find plenty of ways to do it
Researchers found that underage
students either have older friends
buy for them or frequent local bars
and on-campus parties where they
can buy beers for as little as $1
each.
"There's always someone who
will buy for you said Craig
Lareau, 18, of Westborough, who
graduated from high school this
year and will enter college in the
fall. "And there are bars I can go
to that would let me in even if I
had a fake ID with a picture of a
black girl on it
In March, Harvard released a
study using data from the same sur-
vey concluding the population of
frequent binge drinkers rose last
year to 22.7 percent of the total
student population, up from 19.8
percent in 1993 and 20.9 percent
in 1997.
The report provided more evi-
dence that the national increase in
the minimum drinking
age to 21 has done little
to reduce drinking
among 18-to-21 year
olds. Drunk driving,
however, has been re-
duced. The report cited
federal research credit-
ing the rise in the drink-
ing age with reducing
motor vehicle fatalities
involving 18-to-20 year
olds by 800 per year.
It's the threat of losing their li-
cense if caught driving drunk that
keeps underage drinkers off the
road, Wechsler said. In Massachu-
setts, first time-drunk driving of-
fenders receive a mandatory 180-
day suspension of their license.
Underage drinkers caught simply
possessing alcohol typically receive
probation�a penalty that needs
toughening, Wechsler said.
Helen Stubbs, spokeswoman for
the Higher Education Center for
Alcohol and Other Drug Preven-
tion in Newton, said harsh penal-
ties also needed for older people
who provide young people with
alcohol, and the owners .of bars
that regularly serve young drinkers,
she said.
"Enforcement of the laws is very
important she said. "We need to
hold the licensed seilers respon-
sible, and to put some teeth to
those laws

STAFF WRITER
The fourth annual Summer
Guitar Festival and Workshop
will begin on Saturday, June 24
and continue through Thurs-
day, June 28 at the AJ Fletcher
Recital Hall.
Open to students, faculty
and the community, the work-
shop offers participants the
chance to improve or acquire
skills on the classical guitar.
The festival includes four
nights of public concerts, per-
formed by award-winning gui-
tarists Dr. Elliot Frank, Andrew
Zohn and John Michael Parris.
The guitar workshop is an in-
tensive week of teaching for
students of all skill levels, in-
cluding beginners. It is opened
for residential and commuting
students from junior high
school age
through adult.
"We have
about 20 stu-
dents already en-
rolled in the pro-
gram so far, and
we are opened for more said
Frank, assistant professor of
Guitar.
The lessons will contain fun-
damental note reading and ba-
sic playing techniques. These
instructions can even help
teach someone who has never
attempted to play a musical in-
strument.
"The only thing that the stu-
dents need is a basic acoustic
guitar with nylon strings
Frank said.
Tuition for the workshop is
$175 for ECU students and
$200 for non-students.
The festival will feature a dif-
ferent performance each night.
Works to be performed include

cording of Venezuelan waltzes
from composer Antonio Lauro.
Each musician will perform
various musical pieces ranging
from classical European and
Latin-American pieces to self-
written compositions.
"The competition is a two
day event. It will include a
semi-final on Sunday and the
finals on Wednesday
The festival is a great oppor-
tunity to acquire or enhance
music skills on the guitar or lis-
ten to music performed by

Senate proposes character education
Legislation program stresses
manners, morality for students
Missie Thompson
STAFF WRITER
The Senate Committee of North Carolina is recently
approved a new education proposal that asserts a need
for programs that strengthen character education within
the school system. The character education programs in-
clude three main ideas mentioned under Senate Bill 1177-
respect for teachers, responsibility for school safety and
good citizenship.
"It is a much needed proposal said Ella Harris the
current assistant principal at J.H. Rose High School. "Char-
acter education has not been focused on in quite a while
due to liberation. However, we are going back to the ba-
sic teachings of good character and morals and kids need
that
The respect for teachers mandate includes treating fac-
ulty with high regard, politeness and courtesy, as well as
addressing them in the correct fashion. The concept of
school safety embodies orderly, effective and positive
means of resolving disagreements. Its purpose is to cre-
ate a safe learning environment that is free from disrup-
tion and violence. The good citizenship area of the pro-
posal urges students to know their rights and fulfill their
responsibilities.
"I support the character education proposal whole-
heartedly said Sen. Ed Warren. Warren, the vice chair-
man of the Education Committee.
Warren is the former principal of J.H. Rose and Ayden
High Schools. He believes that the proposal's three main ideas
are exactly what the North Carolina school system needs.
"The character education proposal sounds like a great
idea said ECU junior Julia Roland. "Addressing people
with respect should be taught in schools, after all you do
need respect even after school
Statewide, there has been a 40 percent increase concern-
ing situations of assault against school faculty since 1993-
' 94 according to Warren's press release. In addition, there
has been a 7 percent increase in situations of verbal abuse
on faculty since 1991. These statistics have raised Senate
interest in the educational system's role in the develop-
ment of the character of the student body.
In their view, such incidents, have exposed the need for
programs aimed at solidifying the morals and manners of
students.
"The proposal would be beneficiary to the school sys-
tem said ECU junior Wendy Chapman. "With all the
heartless things that have been happening in schools
around the world, students need to have respect enforced
and not as an option
According to Warren, the proposal passed the commit-
tee on Wednesday, June 14. The proposal must go through
several other committees, which will then collaborate on
the details. The committee feels that the bill will have a
positive effect on North Carolina schools and communi-
ties.
"Hopefully the proposal will be on the Senate floor within
the next day or so Warren said.
The bill would also permit and encourage students to
volunteer in peer mentoring and community involvement.

ACROSS OTHER CAMPUSES
AUSTIN, TX-Want to rub elbows with
the likes of human 'Clown n' Ball' Jon
Weiss and Michu the Smallest Man on
Earth or ride in the clown car? Friday
through Sunday, the 130th Edition of
Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey
Circus will bring big thrills and excitement
to the Frank Erwin Center, showcasing
some of the best circus talent ever as-
sembled.
To become members of "The Greatest
Show on Earth most rely on family con-
nections. Some, however, aspire to achieve
membership directly through Ringling
Brossponsored schools.
The prospect of global travel was one
of the most alluring aspects for Marni
Sussman, a member of Clown Alley in the
Ringling Bros, circus.
Sussman, 24, graduated from the State
University of theater. She said she had no
idea what she was getting into before at-
tending clown school.
"It's totally a lifestyle that I wasn't ex-
pecting Sussman said amid the commo-
tion of the pre-show set up Thursday at
the Frank Erwin Center. Joanna Wilbee,
five-year regional director of public rela-
tions for Ringling Bros said the job isn't
easy but hardly anything is in circus life.
She added that applicants must be pre-
pared for constant touring, no privacy and
lots of hard work without much of a home
life. Sussman said she rarely finds time
alone.
"It's much more than theater
Sussman said. "Being a clown in the cir-
cus is a very communal way of life. The
only time I am alone is when I am asleep
Wilbee, who graduated from Western
Michigan University, said she travels and
works for the circus 42 weeks of the year.
"It's just a matter of timing if you want
to work in this business Wilbee said, who
began working for Ringling Bros, after
helping to promote the circus while work-
ing for Sears, Roebuck and Co.
"The biggest thing is that you have to
be willing to travel Wilbee said.
Sussman said she has always had an
inclination to travel, making her a per-
fect candidate for the circus.
"When 1 was a kid I was always leaving
home to go to summer camp or to travel
around she said. "That's what this is, it's
like a professional summer camp
Wilbee added that one of the hardest
things for people to adapt to is not hav-
ing a permanent home. Producer Kenneth
Feld said Ringling Bros, has been touring
worldwide for 130 years.
"The Greatest Show on Earth is as popu-
lar today as it was in the 19th and 20th
centuries said Feld. "The reason for its
everlasting fame is simple people canrelate
to the circus and the magic it inspires in
all of us
Sussman said she generally enjoys her
profession.
"This job is certainly not for everyone.
We work a lot, but it's all totally worth
it Sussman said.
BERKELEY, CalifIn another blow to
the University of California-managed Los
Alamos National Laboratory, officials this
week disclosed that two computer hard
drives have disappeared from the
laboratory's stock of highly classified
nuclear material.
In the wake of the disappearance, uni-
versity officials announced the start of two
independent inquiries into how-for the
second time in recent history-classified
nuclear information was seemingly mis-
placed at the laboratory, one of three
facilitiesthe university runs for the U.S.
Department of Energy.
The department and the FBI have also
launched a joint investigation, and the
laboratory suspended six employees this
week.
The first university review, which be-
gan Wednesday, will evaluate the chain
of command in the laboratory's manage-
ment. A more comprehensive review, at
an undetermined date in the future, will
take a more in-depth look at management
structure and practices.
"The idea is for these experts to do an
independent assessment, to submit their
comments to UC President Richard
Atkinson said Rick Malaspina, UC labo-
ratory spokesperson.
Although the university has the author-
ity to suspend or dismiss employees,
Malaspina emphasized that it does not
mean the university will punish anyone
for their actions.
"We don't want to indicate that this re-
view in itself will lead to any personnel
actions or changes" he said. "There is no
indication of wrongdoing on their part
As Congress blasted Energy Department
leaders Wednesday for alleged misman-
agement of the laboratory, the trial of Wen
Ho Lee, a scientist charged with down-
loading nuclear secrets onto a computer
disk, was rescheduled for another date in
November. Lee was dismissed from his job
at Los Alamos last year after a lengthy FBI
investigation. He has not been charged
with espionage.
The Lee case has stirred up tension
among Asians who say they feel Lee is
being targetted because of his Chinese
background. This week, Ling-chi Wang,
chair of UC Berkeley's ethnic studies de-
partment, said the suspension of the six
employees paled in comparison to the
treatment of Lee, who is in prison await-
ing trial.
"What a deal Wang said of the sus-
pension of the six employees.
"What a stark contract with
Richardson's treatment of Wen Ho Lee and
his alleged 'missing tapes This is double
standard at its best
The data, which was reported missing
to the Energy Department June 1, may
have disappeared in last month's fires that
badly damaged the town and threatened
the laboratory.

For some
students,
religion goes
beyond being
a lifeline; it is
the one thing
that keeps
their feet
planted firmly
on the
ground.
OUR VIEW
ECU houses an abundance of campus religious or-
ganizations. ECU's Campus Ministries, the body that
connects all of these organizations, has worked at cre-
ating an environment where anyone will feel accepted,
no matter what the person's religious affiliation hap-
pens to be. We would like to commend the Campus
Ministries for fathering such a warm, receptive atmo-
sphere.
Religion becomes the lifeline many look to when
their Spanish class is wearing on their nerves, when
their long-term boyfriend or girlfriend breaks up with
them or when a family crisis occurs back at home and
they are stranded in Greenville. But to other students,
religion goes beyond that; it is the one thing that keeps
their feet planted firmly on the ground. Whatever the
reason, the Campus Ministries is a reliable body to
lean on.
Their door is always open. So whether you need
to see a smiling face, a person to lend an ear or a
smidgen of guidance, one of the many campus reli-
gious organizations may have just what you are search-
ing for.
Jacksonville, N.Cs City Manager
Michael Moore has recently been in
the news. Apparently, Moore has
been a very bad boy. While in his of-
fice during regular business hours,
Moore viewed a pornographic Web
site on his office computer. The city
decided not to press charges against
Moore, but fined him $1,500.
Aren't you all tired of this? I'm sick
of my tax dollars going to politicians
who have nothing more to do than
to abuse their power and privileges.
Moore could have been spending his
time doing something constructive.
What makes politicians think that
they can get away with anything that
a regular citizen cannot? I know that
most professional business people
couldn't get away with this (unless
you're Bill Gates and you can afford
to buy the world).
An employee of BB&T asked me
not to send obscene e-mails to him.
Yes, even I do it. Who doesn't send
and receive dirty e-mails? The point
is, that BB&T employee could have
gotten fired for those types of e-
mails, so in order to preserve his job
no one sends him dirty e-mails any-
more.
Why couldn't Moore have taken
the same approach? Moore must not
have had the common sense to con-
sider the consequences of his actions
beforehand. This is called foresight.
There is a time and a place for ev-
erything. I'm not disappointed in
the man for looking at a porno-
graphic Web site. I'm sure millions
of people do it every once in a while
or the sites wouldn't even be in ex-
istence. (Neither would those types
of magazines, novelty stores, etc.) He
could have waited until he got home
if he just had to look at it.
Sitting in one's office, wasting
away the taxpayers' money-l mean
the time away isn't cool. It's not cool
for President Bill Clinton to do any-
thing we view as wrong, so it's not
cool for Moore.
An apology didn't stop the presi-
dent from getting impeached, and
it didn't prevent Moore getting
fined. You should always think be-
fore you speak, act or even click a
mouse.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR
Sachs misinformed on North-South issues
At IN MY OPINION
Naughty Moore caught on Net
Dear Editor,
What exactly was the point of your article
"Going from Bad to Diverse?" You claim that
you want to put to rest the arguments between
the North and South, but you spend the whole
article blasting the South. I would.have been
offended if you had actually put some thought
into your writing, but I am more embarrassed
for you because of your lame argument.
All you use are hackneyed stereotypes and
poorly researched one-sided arguments that
don't make any sense. I'm not going to say
the South is perfect, but it deserves more credit
than you give it. At the same time, the North
isn't some Utopia of harmony-just look at the
Boston St. Patrick's Day homosexual contro-
versy for one example. So let's take your
"points" one by one:
1. First off, the South, in general, is friendly.
However, we show respect and good will to
those who show us the same. Smart-ass know-
it-alls like yourself lose the privilege of South-
ern hospitality. Respect is earned.
2. Black relations-considering the history
of the South, I would say that our race rela-
tions are pretty good. The North has had just
as bad a record with race relations as us, but
the history isn't that long because there
weren't many blacks in the North until after
the Civil War. As soon as blacks migrated
North, they were treated just as badly as they
were here.
3. Busy cities-All the cities you named are
heavily influenced by Northerners. Of course,
cities are fast-paced; that is just how life is
nowadays. The difference is rudeness, and the
South still falls way behind the North in that
category.
4. Small towns-There are just as many small
towns and hicks in the North as there are in
the South. Everyone is wary of change. Many
people in the South are scared of change be-
cause they see the way our society is headed;
and I don't blame them. Experiencing other
things is great, but let's not knock those that
are happy where they are. To each his own.
As for cultural festivals, they reflect the cul-
ture of the population. How many Hindu fes-
tivals do you think there are around here?
Have you been to any of our local cultural
festivals? Probably not, because you are too
busy putting us down for not broadening our
horizons. As for Spike Lee, while I have en-
joyed some of his films and respect him, his
movies are just as racist as Southerners you
will meet.
In closing, you end your article by saying
that Southerners "keep the country separate
What exactly does your article do? It sure
doesn't make me feel all cuddly toward the
North. I personally have no problem with
Northerners as long as they respect me and
my culture. You obviously do not. At the very
least, write an article that sounds intelligent.
As it stands, you have embarrassed yourself,
The East Carolinian and the university com-
munity. I am ashamed to have my school
newspaper run such shoddy material. Thank
you.

According to Williams,
the U.S. Postal Service lost
all 60 of her wedding invi-
tations. Williams she mailed
them at the beginning of
the month from a post of-
fice substation in Meriden.
Her attorney, Leonard

GRAND ISLAND, Neb.
(AP)�A 19-year-old
Doniphan man was sen-
tenced to about eight
months in jail Friday and or-
dered to pay more than
$2,000 for a vandalism
spree.
Courtney Jenkins pleaded
no contest last month in
Hall County Court to four
counts of misdemeanor
criminal mischief. As part of
a plea agreement, five addi-
tional counts of criminal
mischief were dropped.
Jenkins was sentenced to
240 days in (ail and agreed
to pay $2,366 to help cover
damages.
During the April 23 van-
dalism spree, chunks of con-
crete or rocks were thrown
through vehicle windows
against cars and through a
school window in eight
separate incidents.
Cars belonging to the
Bank of Doniphan, the
United Methodist Church of
Doniphan and a local school
were damaged, as well as sev-
eral other privately owned
vehicles. The total damage
was $7,100.

Features Editor
For some students new to the
college experience, "fitting in" to
their new environment means
rejecting authority, learning to
drink, heading downtown with
mischievous motivations or
wearing clothes they never would
have dared to expose to the pub-
lic eye previously. But for junior
biology major Valerie Hicks,
maintaining her religious dedica-
tion was the only way she felt
comfortable adapting to college
life.
Raised in a congregational
household, Flicks was encouraged
to join the Wesley Foundation,
the local university Methodist
center. Now she is the Wesley
Foundation's student board presi-
dent and lives in the
Foundation's house.
"It's been so awesome she
said. "It's just like having a fam-
ily away from home
Every week, the members of
the Foundation get together for
activities like group meals and
Bible study. According to United
Methodist minister Scott
Wilkinson, director of the Weslev
Foundation and the university
liaison to Campus Ministries,
students who don't feel comfort-
able with the downtown experi-
ence often find their niche
within the religious community.
"I think the key is if they
can find a small group that be-
comes their special group
Wilkinson said. "It's like being a
number versus being in a fam-
ily
For junior French education
major Joshua Culp, that kind of
community was a little harder to
come by. He transferred to ECU
from Illinois, where he had be-
longed to a large Jewish commu-
nity. Here in the "Bible Belt his
religious safety net virtually dis-
appeared.
"No one ever thinks that
you're not a Christian he said.
But, according to Culp, being
a religious minority has given
him the opportunity to see his
religion from a new perspective.
"It makes me appreciate my
own practice more he said. "It's
given me an identity. A lot of stu-
dents don't have one
Like Hicks, Culp also has a
haven with members of his com-
munity. Ilillel, the national Jew-
ish student organization, helps it
members cope with the com-
plexities of practicing Judaism in
an otherwise non-Jewish world.
Through the efforts of the orga-
nization students have visited the
Holocaust Museum, participated
in religious traditions together
and volunteered at homeless
shelters during their spare time.
According to Culp, this is because
Judaism is much more about
practice than Christianity. �
"Judaism is a way of life he
said. "If you don't practice, then
you're not a Jew
The Muslim, Jewish and Chris-
tian groups on campus all belong
to Campus Ministries, the official
campus connection to religious
practice. They have been work-
ing with ECU since 1941 and
have never really had much con-
flict on religious grounds.
"Separation of church and
state is much less an issue be-
cause we are interfaith
Wilkinson said. "We have a
very good relationship with
the University
The group sponsors projects
like the prayer box in the
Wright Place, which Wilkinson
says has been a very successful
endeavor. If you would like

Ministries or a particular cam-
pus religious group, call Scott
Wilkinson at 758-2030.

PICK OF THE WEEK: Bear Rock Cafe
Emily Little
FEATURES EDITOR
Technically, a cafe is a coffee shop where you
can buy tiny sandwiches or a bowl of soup and
soda. But you'd never know that in the United
States, because every restaurant that does some-
thing creative with its seating arrangement likes
to add the word "cafe" to its title so that its pa-
trons will feel cosmopolitan.
Greenville's Bear Rock Cafe, located off of
Greenville Boulevard, near Staples, has done a
little better than most in keeping with its name.
They specialize in sandwiches, albeit big ones
and soup in sourdough bread bowls. The atmo-
sphere is hunting lodge-style, with several dif-
ferent types of chairs set neatly by a fireplace.
High wooden beams hold up the ceiling and
red plaid trim clings to the furniture. You can
choose to sit outside if the rustic decor is not to
your liking.
Sandwich selections at the Bear Rock Cafe can
come either from the menu or from your own
design. Some of their sandwiches are traditional,
like reubens and roast beef concoctions, but they
have other interesting innovations in the bread
and meat field. Sandwich combos generally
come with your choice of chips and a drink. You
can also sample the soup of the day, which
comes highly recommended.
The cost is average for any lunchy-type place.
Depending on what you choose, you're nor-
mally looking at something in the $4-$6 range.
But, keep in mind, these sandwiches are pretty
big, so you definitely get the most for your
money.
In this American world where we have been

you'd never know that here, where
a restaurant that does something
creative with its seating arrange-
ment likes to add the word "cafe" to

conditioned to require prodding before we make
any decisions, Bear Rock Cafe puts us at a bit of
a disadvantage. Their employees do not ask you
if you want a pickle, or if you'd like the sour-
dough bowl for your soup. You simply must re-
member to ask. For most of us, that Is some-
thing we are not prepared to do, no matter how
many times the menu reminds us to do so. There
is also a lack of guidelines on how to order. You
grab a menu and figure it out as you go, hoping
you don't sound like an idiot. Fortunately, how-
ever, the selection is not complicated.
So, if you're looking for a genuine cafe, or as
close to one as you can find in Greenville, the
Bear Rock Cafe may be a good place to start.
There are no waiters to clear your table and bring
you Coke in a glass bottle, but they do have a
figure-it-out-for-yourself attitude and a comfort-
able, sandwich-heavy atmosphere where you
could easily sit and talk for hours without be-
ing encouraged to leave. It's all very European-
American.

Police step up patrols as car-theft movie plays
WHITE MARSH, Md. (AP)�
Fearing that real-life moviegoers
may imitate art after seeing a film
about car thiefs, Baltimore
County police are stepping up
patrols outside the theater play-
ing the new action film Gone in
60 Seconds.
After watching Nicholas Cage
take less than one minute to steal
a car in the movie, police said,
they are worried that people
might walk out of a theater and
think they can do the same
thing.
Police have increased patrols
near the county's largest movie
theater, The Avenue in White
Marsh, and at Mass Transit Ad-
ministration parking lots during
evening hours, said Capt. Lee W.
Russo, commander of the White
Marsh precinct.
"It could be another example
of life imitating Hollywood. For
me, it is about being proactive
said Russo. He said he has not
seen an increase in thefts since
the movie opened, but warned,
"If there are any lingering inter-
ests, they will be deterred
In the movie, Cage plays a
thief whose goal is to steal SO vin-
tage cars in 72 hours. In each In-

stance, he is able to steal the car
in less than 60 seconds.
The movie was released Friday,
and at $25.5 million, it topped
movie sales during its first week'
end. It is playing in 29 theaters

area, and some law-enforcement
officials are concerned that it
might encourage first-time car
thieves, particularly juveniles.
"Some of the things they say
are far-fetched. But then there are
some realistic instances, like pop-
ping the ignition, that we in law
enforcement have to deal with
Russo said.
Last year, 3,199 cars were sto-
len in Baltimore County, and
7,258 in the city.
Nationally, auto theft costs
about $9 billion a year. About 10
percent of those arrested for auto
theft in Baltimore City and Bal-
timore County were juveniles,
county police said.
Andrea Marozas, a Walt Disney
Studios spokeswoman, declined
to comment on the movie.
Some theater managers said
they do not fear that the film will
influence moviegoers to steal
cars.

Woods wins Open
Tiger Woods proved why
he is the world's top golfer
"unday, by winning the 2000
I.S. Open at Pebble Beach by
15 strokes, shooting 12-under
ar for the tournament.
His margin of victory is the
argest in the history of the
Open and is also the largest
ever for a major champion-
ship.
Woods' nearest opponents
were Miguel Angel Jimenez
and Ernie Els. Both shot a
three-over par 287. Woods
took a lead after Thursday's
round.
After Friday, Woods had
amassed a six-stroke lead, the
largest 36-hole lead in the his-
tory of the Open. After Satur-
day, Woods was ahead of the
pack by 10 strokes, another
Open record.
Woods is the first player to
win the U.S. Junior Amateur,
the U.S. Amateur and the U.S.

Staying close to home
Three Pitt County prospects
look forward to Pirate Futures
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS EDITOR
Greenville and Pitt County is known as a baseball hotbed.
Greenville has sent numerous players to Division 1 colleges
over the years and fortunately for ECU, many of them choose
to stay home.
That is the case with select group of high school players this
year. Three of Pitt County's most promising players will look
to make an impact in ECU's program next season.
ECU redshirt freshman Jamie Paige and rising ECU fresh-
men Ashley Capps and Kelly Hodges played together on the
1999 J.H. Rose squad that went 28-0, won North Carolina's
State Championship and was ranked in top 10 by Baseball
America.
Now the trio suits up for Pitt County's American Legion Post
39 team.
"All three kids are great kids who work hard all the time
said Post 39 Head Coach Jason Mills. "They are the very best
that the game has to offer
Last season Paige, an outfielder, entered ECU as a freshman
and was redshirted by Head Coach Keith LeClair.
"Having Jamie come back with the year of experience from
college is a big plus for us Mills said. "He brings us a lot of
leadership
Paige watched first-hand as the Pirates won their second
straight CAA Tournament Championship
and compete in the NCAA Tournament.
"Having a guy like Jamie Paige around is
just tremendous for us Mills said. "He has
that year of experience playing with guys
like Lee Delfino, (James) Molinari and
(Nick) Schnabel, and brings that attitude
to this club
"I learned a lot of mental stuff Paige
said. "You learn a lot of little things that
help you win games
Paige will be joined on the Pirate roster
next season by his former Rampant team-
mates Hodges and Capps. Hodges, who
plays outfield for Post 39, looks to make an
impact anywhere he can in the Pirate pro-
gram.
"Wherever they want to put me is fine
with me Hodges said. "I'm just ready to play
Hodges' willingness to do what it takes to win is not unique
among the Pirate signees.
"The good thing about all three of them is that they will do
anything and everything that is asked of them Mills said.
"I've had all three of them in different situations, all three of
them have come through and never hesitated to do it for the
team. Coach LeClair is going to be very satisfied with the three
boys he's getting right here
Capps went 9-3 last season for the Rampants who fell in the
state playoffs.
"Ashley's going to need to get a little bit stronger and get a
little bit more on his fastball, but he's got the potential Mills
said. "He changes speeds and locates very well and isn't afraid
to pitch inside, and he's getting better and better each game
Hodges and Capps will bring more youth to a Pirate team
that will be without a talented lot of seniors. Fortunately they
have Paige who has gone through the rigors of a season of
Pirate baseball to lead them.
"Get ready, it's going to be fun ride Paige said.

OPINION
High schoolers face obstacles in NBA
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS EDITOR
In the closing minutes of the
Indiana Pacers Game 5 victory in
the NBA Finals, Indiana Head
Coach Larry Bird inserted rookie
Jonathan Bender into the lineup.
, Bender a lanky 6-foot-10-inch
forward looked all of his 19 years
as his billowing shorts gave way
to toothpfck legs and his teenage
frame were dwarfed by the mus-
cular bodies of the Laker reserves.
"You'll be hearing a lot more
from this youngster crowed one
of the NBC announcers.
What separates Bender from
the other rookies seeing action in
garbage time of a playoff game is
that Bender is one of the grow-
ing number of high school
phenoms going straight from
high school to the NBA.
Bender is lucky; he was the
fifth overall pick by Toronto and
was acquired by Indiana in a
draft-day trade. He was brought
into a team surrounded by vet-
erans and is looked upon as key
element to the team's future. He
signed a lucrative contract and
prbbably will sign another in four
years. As of now, Bender has his
millions.
While Bender comes of the
bench and attracts attention
from the NBA's illuminati, fur-
ther down the bench second year
pro Al Harrington waits.
Harrington took the same path
as Bender, only with a different
outcome.
Harrington was also a high
school specimen with seemingly
limitless potential who skipped
college for the NBA. Harrington
was selected in the second half
of the first round and thus missed
out on the rich contracts that
entice young prospects to come
out early. As a guardsmall for-
ward, Harrington is lost among
the glut of veterans the Pacers
have at that position.
With every game he moves fur-
ther and further down the Pacer
bench and further and further
from the NBA stardom that drew
him out of college.
The plights of Bender and
Harrington prove that the real
worry about getting an NBA ca-
reer started early is the type of
career you can look forward to.
A high school player jumping
straight to the NBA is not nearly
as shocking as it was five years
ago when Chicago high school
hoops star, Kevin Garnett opted
to enter the draft. Garnett was
taken in the first round by the
Timberwolves and recently
inked a long-term deal that is set
to pay him over $120 million.
The next year, Kobe Bryant
went to the pros and ended up
with the LA Lakers. Bryant, who
is a key component to the Lak-
ers and their run to the finals, is
already one of the league most
marketable and talented players.
In the years that followed,
each draft crop featured a num-
ber of high school stars. Some
like Bryant and Garnett were
taken early and have grown to
become some of the NBA's most
popular players.
Others such as Portland's
Jermaine O'Neal and Seattle's
Rashard Griffin have been rel-
egated to obscurity as bit play-
ers on veteran-laden teams. This
summer high school star
Deshaun Stevenson will eschew
a scholarship offer from Kansas
to enter the NBA draft.
Many critics of this trend ar-

gue that shunning a free educa-
tion in favor of instant riches in
the NBA is morally wrong. They
claim that the education will last
the players a lifetime, while an
NBA career can be fleeting.
While that is a valid point, it is
naive. The thought that a hypo-
thetical player will suffer a career-
ending injury one night and then
turn around and begin work as an
architect, lawyer or stock broker
is ludicrous.
With the right people around
you, an NBA career can give you
money to keep you and your fam-
ily living nicely for life and give
you career options in the sport
and its related industries to keep
you from getting bored.
People seem to forget the NBA
is a business. The emphasis is not
on learning; it is on winning be-
cause if you don't win, you don't
stick around.
Occasionally, a young player
will enter a program where a team
will take the time and effort to let
him learn the game. However,
that is rare. Most of the time the
teenagers assume the role of
bench players.
The limited playing time and
low exposure they receive often
lead to short careers and low pay.
College give young players a
chance to learn the game and
develop. It also gives them a
chance to be the focal point of a
team and perform under real
pressure. It gives them a chance
to play in games where the stakes
are high and makes them battle-
tested by the time they enter the
pros.
Draft position is also key. If
they are not among the first few
picks, their initial contracts will
be at or near the league mini-
mum and will not give them the
money that will set them and
their families up the way many
envision.
It will leave them with five
years (the length of a rookie con-
tract) to make enough of an im-
pression to get them the multi-
million dollar contract offers.
While nobody question's the
decisions of Bryant and Garnett
anymore, players like Bender
make the best of their opportu-
nities while players like
Harrington just hope to get one.

England receives
warning at Euros
AMSTERDAM, The Netherlands (AP)�With England threatened
with expulsion for its fans' misconduct. Euro 2000 is fixated less on
who will win than on how to keep the thugs away.
The threat from the European soccer federation (UEFA) came after
a weekend of hooliganism by British fans, who smashed stores and
bars, bashed up cars, hurled racial taunts and picked fights with
German supporters and Belgian police.
Police said 56 people were injured and some 850 detained for de-
portation, nearly all Britons.
"They are a disgrace to their country and a blight on the national
team said UEFA chief executive Gerhard Aigner.
After an emergency meeting, UEFA's executive committee said
England�seeking a berth in the quarterfinals of the European cham-
pionships�would be thrown out of the championship if such be-
havior was repeated before or at Tuesday's match against Romania.
"UEFA will have to consider the future presence of the English
team if there is any more violence Aigner said.
If England does reach the quarterfinals, it could face Italy in Brus-
sels, a city with a large Turkish immigrant community. English hood-
lums have sworn revenge for the stabbing deaths of two Leeds fans
in Istanbul in April.
In a statement, UEFA called on the British government and the
British Football Association "to take the necessary steps to stop En-
gland hooligans from traveling abroad
Euro 2000 director Alain Courtois said other countries had effec-
tively stopped troublemakers from entering Belgium or the Nether-
lands, the two Euro 2000 co-hosts. He wondered why an island na-
tion like England could not do the same.
"This is a strong signal of UEFA. It gives England a final chance. If
they don't take it, UEFA will dome down hard Courtois said.
