j orth Carolina Speaker of the House J. Dennis
Hastert recently visited Greenville to campaign on
behalf of U.S. Rep. Walter Jones.
Hastert, who was the keynote speaker at a luncheon of over
220 supporters including members of the ECU College Re-
publicans, recognized the meritorious service that Jones has
given Eastern North Carolina during the past year.
The efforts that Walter Jones provided during the Hurri-
cane Floyd disaster were lauded during a post luncheon press
conference on Thursday, July 6.
"I feel that I know this area, because when disaster hit,
Walter was In my office day in and day out to make sure that
relief packages were put together Hastert said.
Jones's behind the scenes efforts have been instrumental
in hastening the recent passage of a defense and disaster bill
on Capitol Hill.
The combined efforts of Jones and Hastert has help secure
legislation raising national defense spending from $24 bil-
lion last year to almost $29 billion this year.
"We want to make sure that those dollars are there so that
our men and women who serve this country don't have to
feed their kids on food stamps, that the airplanes fly, that the
ships have full power when they leave port, and they have
the training and equipment to get the job done Hastert said.
Jones, who is nmning against Lenoir County's Leigh Harvey
McNairy, has sponsored the development of legislation that
assists the elderly by providing subsidies to help offset the
high price of prescription drugs. During the conference there
were also discussions of recent efforts proposing an inherit-

UNC-CH, Duke form scholarly partnership
CRIME
(TMS Campus)-The Univer-
sity of North Carolina and Duke
University are the happy recipi-
ents of a scholarship that benefits
both schools at once. New York
investment manager Julian H.
Robertson Jr. and his wife Josie
are donating $24 million to the
two schools, known for being
fierce sports rivals, in order to
create a pioneering collaborative
program that will recruit and
support "extraordinary under-
graduate students" at both cam-
puses.
Located 10 miles from each
other, half the students will en-
roll at UNC at Chapel Hill and
half at Duke, located in nearby
Durham. All will attend classes
at both schools, as well as spend
one semester living on the other
campus.
One of the Robertsons' three
sons is a 1998 graduate of Duke;
another is a senior at North Caro-
lina. Ms. Robertson is a member
of North Carolina's Board of Ad-
visors, and Mr. Robertson grew
up in Salisbury, N.C.
UNC Interim Chancellor Wil-
liam O. McCoy and Duke Presi-
dent Nannerl O. Keohane- an-
nounced the gift Tuesday, saying
it will inspire both universities to
"new levels of colleagueship and
collaboration
Mr. Roberts said in a written
statement, "Josie and I are estab-
lishing this scholarship because
of our great respect for both uni-
versities as well as our love and
affection for the state of North
Carolina
The program will provide
laptop computers to all partici-
pating students. There will be
special seminars in the scholars'
freshman and senior years to be
taught by faculty from both cam-
puses. Also, students attend ser-
vice learning opportunities, a
pre-enrollment retreat and bi-
weekly dinners during the fall
semester to encourage acclima-
tion to the cultures of both cam-
puses. Paid summer intern expe-
riences are also part of the pro-
gram.
The first class of M) students,
15 at Duke and 15 at UNC, is ex-
pected to enroll in 2001. Al-
though the students will gradu-
ate from the universities they
entered, each will receive certifi-
cation that they received their
education at both universities.
New guidelines urge universities to report drinking to parents
DURHAM (AP)-University of-
ficials say new federal guidelines
will help them expand efforts to
notify parents when students
have abused alcohol or drugs
without violating the privacy
rights of students.
The regulations issued Thurs-
day by the U.S. Department of
Education respond to changes
Congress made in 1998 to the
Family Educational Rights and
Privacy Act. University officials
said the changes clarify their abil-
ity to inform parents of an alco-
hol or drug violation.
"Parents can be a powerful ally
in trying to help students with
problems they might be having
said CarrieZelna, associate direc-
tor of student conduct at N.C.
State.
"Our notification letters sim-
ply tell the parent that a viola-
tion happened. It tells them to
speak with their student
N.C. State currently notifies
parents upon a student's second
alcohol violation. Duke and
UNC officials are working on
policies that could establish or
expand parental notification on
their campuses.
Officials said the new guide-
lines don't require parental no-
tices, but allow them if the stu-
dent is under 21.
Previously, colleges could only
inform parents if the student was
under 18 or the institution could
prove the student was financially
dependent on a parent. The pri-
vacy law prohibits colleges from
releasing students' educational
records.

NEWS
Most students unaware
of loan changes
(TMS Campus)-Students with
outstanding loans could save
bundles of cash by refinancing
their loans. Unfortunately, many
of them aren't aware of the op-
portunity.
As of July 1, the interest rate
on student loans will increase by
1.2S percentage points. Due to
increases in interest rates set by
the Federal Reserve Board over
the past year, the rate that bor-
rowers must pay is going to in-
crease to 8.25 percent, the maxi-
mum rate that most borrowers
are responsible for paying under
federal student-loan law.
This new rate hike will affect
almost all borrowers in repay-
ment, as federal student loans
have variable interest rates that
are adjusted annually, no matter
how long ago the loan was taken
out. Education Department offi-
cials, however, say that borrow-
ers can take advantage of the cur-
rent lower rates for the duration
of their loans if they consolidate
"Since all my loans come through my school, I
think that they should have told me about the rate
change

them before July 1.
By consolidating multiple
loans into one, borrowers can
receive a fixed interest rate that
is based on the weighted average
of the rates on the underlying
loans. Since rates have been at a
historic low, department officials
say, refinancing could save bor-
rowers with $20,000 in debt
about $1,500 in interest charges
over the lives of their loans.
"I think I should have been
told that says Sarah Mallin, a
graduate student at the School of
the Art Institute in Chicago, of
her lender, Student Loan Servic-
ing Center. Sarah, like most other
students, was not aware of the
impending rate hike, and the
window of opportunity to make
use of the old rates.
Because the news of the rate
change came rather late, May 25,
just as students were leaving for
summer vacation, the Education
Department has been pushing
hard the last few weeks to alert
borrowers of the upcoming rate
change, via radio public service
announcements and newspaper
articles.
Meanwhile, colleges have been
deciding whether or not want to
inform alumni of the rate
change. Some did nothing at all,
while others have sent letters to
graduates, or posted a notice in
their alumni publications. Some
lenders have been notifying their

Democratic Convention
LOS ANGELES (Knight-
Kidder Tribune)�Two months
from now, 35,000 delegates, jour-
nalists and guests will descend on
the still-new Staples Center for
the Democratic National Con-
vention.
Homeless activist led Hayes
says he'll be ready to welcome
those visitors to his downtown
neighborhood�with prayer vig-
ils, candlelight marches and the
presentation of an agenda "to
eradicate what is happening at
the bottom of society
Hayes will be among the po-
tentially thousands of people
planning to challenge what they
call political business as usual
while the foregone presidential
nomination of Vice President Al
Gore unfolds inside the conven-
tion.
Beyond the heavily secured
Democratic meeting site, Hayes
is convening a national confer-
ence of homeless people and
their advocates. Conservative
skeptic Arianna Huffington is
hosting a shadow convention to
discuss "campaign-finance re-
form, the growing income gap
and the failed war on drugs
Constituents of the environmen-
talist Green Party and the multi-
issue Direct Action Network also
plan to converge in Ixis Angeles
in the days surrounding the Aug.
14-17 Democratic Convention.
Some intend to disrupt the
proceedings, as a loose coalition
tried to do at recent World Trade
Organization and World Bank
International Monetary Tund
meetings in Seattle and Washing-
ton, D.C Others don't plan to get
arrested or block access but want
only to remind convention
guests that not everyone is happy
with the major party candidates.
"A lot of people are just tired
of choosing between the lesser of
two evils" when voting for a
president, said Alii Starr of the
Direct Action Network and Glo-
bal Exchange, a San Francisco-
based organization dedicated to
reordering the economic rela-
tionship between the United
States and developing nations.
Starr's groups, and others, are
planning a similar presence at
the Republican National Con-
vention in Philadelphia begin-
ning July 29.
On Monday, a handful of
homeless activists demonstrated
in downtown Ixis Angeles, claim-
ing that police are sweeping
them from the street before the
Democrats convene. Police have
contended all along that this is
not the case.
But living conditions for
homeless people like himself
have convinced Hayes that "I
have a duty and a responsibility
to answer this convention
That's why, as delegates leave
the convention hall in the early
evenings, he said they may en-
counter the parallel convention
of a few hundred homeless ac-
tivists. "We're calling on the
president to implement a na-
tional Marshall Plan, if you will

The East Carolinian 5
opinion�tec.ecu.edu
Parents who
pay for their
child's school-
ing certainly
have a right
to know
whether or
not to expect
legal trouble
at the very
least.
OUR VIEW
The recent regulations regarding parental notifica-
tion when a student is found in violation of drug and
alcohol policies at his or her university may disappoint
many students. Some may feel that this policy infringes
on their privacy and that a university has no business
turning in a student to his or her parents. Some stu-
dents say that once they come to college, they are faced
with new responsibilities, and that a 'mistake' here and
there is to be expected. They think that college is a
time for growing up, and that parents do not and should
not need to know what 'mistakes' their children are
making away from home.
Vet the fact is that there are many students who
come to college to escape their home lives, and most
do end up making mistakes, some on a regular basis.
These parental notifications are in fact not a viola-
tion of privacy, as they do not specify exactly what hap-
pened, only that there was a violation that should be
discussed. Parents who pay for their child's schooling
certainly have a right to know whether or not to expect
legal trouble at the very least. Underage drinking is af-
ter all, a crime.
While there is always room for making mistakes in
college, universities should not be expected to tolerate
second- and third-time violators who are oblivious to
their campuses' regulations.

MY OPINION
Gun control legislation necessary
Gun restriction has been a very
controversial issue lately. It has been
appearing in the news often and just
about everybody seems to have their
own ideas. The Second Amendment
says people have a right to bear arms.
However, with so much violence and
much of it due to guns, does the Sec-
ond Amendment necessarily hold
true?
The recent shootings in public
schools have really brought this is-
sue to a national level. In addition
to violence in schools, there have
been too many incidents in the work
place as well. What impact does this
have on the victims and their fami-
lies? Are we safe in the work place or
any other public place for that mat-
ter?
This has been a serious issue for
some time now and there has been
much debate about what the Second
Amendment (the right to bear arms)
is really saying. Is it really guaran-
teeing individuals the right to pos-
sess weapons and if so, for what rea-
sons or under what conditions? The
main question is, what should be
done, if anything, about the increas-
ing violence?
As with any other right, the right
to bear arms comes with responsi-
bility. This privilege, just like your
right to freedom and pursuit of hap-
piness, can easily be taken away with
due process of law. If you cannot
handle a gun or use it legally, then
you have lost that right. But it seems
as if the opponents of gun control
laws don't want to limit the right to
bear arms, even to a mentally ill per-
son who might go out and start
shooting because he heard voices in
his head telling him to do so.
President Bill Clinton has put
forth a tremendous amount of ef-
fort to reduce gun violence. How-
ever, it has been met with much re-
sistance from the Republican-con-
trolled congress and the National
Rifle Association (NRA). With the
NRA lobbying heavily and the Re-
publicans against any type of gun
control, it seems like there is a long
battle ahead. With common sense
and the welfare and safety of the
general public on their side, they
should at least get some effective
legislation for gun control.

m,m IN MY OPINION
Confederate flag madness must stop
The Confederate flag-flying issue raging in
South Carolina has been a divisive topic in
the national news for quite a while. As I con-
sider some of the unflattering statistics asso-
ciated with that state (such as low scores with
education and a low standard of living) I can't
help but think that the state is filled with a
bunch of backwoods hicks more concerned
with empty ideals than with joining the rest
of the modern world.
If you are a South Carolinian you should be
embarrassed by this whole issue. I'm not from
South Carolina and I am embarrassed for you.
To put it mildly, this confederate flag busi-
ness is completely absurd. When last I checked
it was the 21st century, and high time to dis-
miss this so-called 'heritage' notion to which
flag supporters refer in order to justify the
continued flying of the Confederate flag at
government institutions. It's the same 'heri-
tage mind you, that divided our nation,
sparked a bloody war between the states and
lead to many an assassination along the way.
Why are some people so proud of this flag?
People from other countries can't understand
the enduring fascination with this flag on the
part of some Southerners. I have no fascina-
tion with this flag. I feel that it is morally op-
posed to everything that today's America
stands for.
As Southern American citizens, our heritage
should not solely rest on a Civil War fought
nearly 140 years ago to preserve ideals and
arguments that are horribly outdated.
Instead, the Civil War is where the roots of
our current racial divide rest. The flag is sym-
bolic of slavery and I am sure that all descen-
dants of slaves, among many others, would
like to forget about that shameful and brutal
period and move on. How can we as Ameri-
cans continue to support something that is only
breaking us down? This flag issue threaten to
set race relations back at least 40 years, to the
days before the gains of the Civil Rights move-
ment.
True enough, the flag has been removed from
the top of the state building. Strangely, it has
now been placed IN FRONT of the state build-
ing along with (and much to my surprise) a 38-
foot Civil War commemorative statue. The flag
was raised on a 30-foot BRONZE pole situated
in the most visible spot on the statehouse
grounds. I guess those backwoods hicks in po-
litical office should learn a thing or two about
subtlety.
The moving of the flag was supposed to be
some sort of compromise between flag support-
ers and opponents. This strange arrangement
has left both sides unhappy with its placement.
Supporters feel that the flag should be put back
atop of the statehouse, while opponents argue
that the flag should not be flown at any insti-
tution of state government. Thus, the stage is
set for further controversy.
Although I am from the South, I am in agree-
ment with the opponents. Just take the flag
down. The Civil War ended long before we or
our parents were born. Let it die. The Confed-
eracy lost and the Union won (hence the flag
with the 50 stars and stripes). The Union didn't
even hold a grudge and graciously let the Con-
federacy come back to be a part of something
gcxxi-the UNITED States-the richest and most
politically powerful nation in history. It's time
that the old Confederacy accept defeat and take
it like a man (or a woman).

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP)-A
woman who called herself
the "Daughter of Cod"
was convicted Monday of
ordering her followers to
rob stores to support their
lavish lifestyle.
Richelle Denise Bradshaw,
34, who also called herself
Queen Shahmia, did not
react as the jury delivered
its verdict She was con-
victed of conspiracy to
commit robbery, five
counts of robbery and
grand theft and she faces
up to 85 years in prison at
sentencing for August 9.
Bradshaw's nomadic min-
istry group traveled
around Florida living on
donations and staying in
luxury hotels, authorities
said.
Bradshaw testified that she
never ordered her follow-
ers to steal and thought
they were out grocery
shopping when the rob-
beries took place.
Two of her followers also
face trial for a string of
New Year's robberies, but
their competency is being
questioned and a judge
has ordered evaluations.
OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP)-An
onlooker at the scene of a
car accident on Saturday
morning in Ocean City
was charged with biting
someone who he felt had
smiled inappropriately at
the crash scene.
Anthony C. Kamenski, 23,
of Washington, Pa was
charged with assault and
malicious destruction.
Police said Marcos Ismael
Escobar, 28, of Mardela
Springs, drove off the road
about 2:15 a.m knocking
down two parking signs
and hitting a utility pole.
As officers investigated,
Kamenski apparently was
offended by a man he be-
lieved had smiled as he
walked by the accident
scene and proceeded to
rip his shirt and bite his
cheek, police and wit-
nesses said.

You've walked across campus and seen the
cupola in the center of the mall, but you
never really knew why it was there. It was a
gift from a class of students, and there are
more gifts like it all over campus.
Gifts to the school are given in the form
of monetary donations, such as scholarships
and landmarks like the cupola. The cupola
was purchased with the combined donations
of three families of alumni as part of the
chancellor's plan for campus renovation. Other examples of landmark do-
nations can be found at the newly renovated Joyner Library. The sculptures
in the inner garden were donated by various families and alumni. In addi-
tion, some of the artwork have been donated while others are on loan or are
done by students.
"The base for these gifts often comes from alumni said Jim Lanier, vice
chancellor of institutional advancement. "We have had a few gifts from stu-
dents but no gifts come from student fees. All are donated gifts from outside
the university which includes parents, alumni, and students
Gifts are usually given to one of three foundations at ECU. These include
academics, athletics, and medicine.
"We raised over $10 million for all three foundations during the last fiscal
year Lanier said.
These gifts are for the benefit of the school. Much of the gifts given to the
athletic foundation go toward Pirate
Club scholarships and more recently
to the construction of the new
Strength and Conditioning Center.
The Pirate Club, also known as the
ECU Educational Foundation, is
made up mostly of alumni and fans
who simply picked ECU as their team
to pull for.
"Last year we had 6,800 members
said Dennis Young, executive direc-
tor of the ECU Pirate Club. "Our goal
for 2000 is 7,400
The Pirate Club raised $10.8 mil-
lion during a 13 month long cam-
paign for the Strength and Condi-
tioning Center.
"Our goal for this fiscal year is to raise $2.9 million in unrestricted
contributions Young said. "We will fund over $2 million in student
athletics and another $35,000 in other expenses for these athletics
The academic foundation's two priorities for the gifts that they re-
ceive are to increase the number of merit scholarships offered to fresh-
men and endowed professorships for visiting professors that come to
ECU.
"We had $12.5 million as of last month Lanier said. "We hope to
have over15 million by the end of 2000 for merit scholarships. Also,
part of the money raised for the medical foundation goes for merit
scholarships
The medical foundation seeks endowment support to make improve-
ments in various student laboratories in health sciences including al-
lied health sciences, Brody School of Medicine, and the school of nurs-
ing.
"We are a partner in the ECU foun-
dation in order to support the cam-
paign for east Carolina scholars de-
signed to increase ECU'S endowment
to fund merit scholarships said Terry
Carter, vice president and executive
director for the medical foundation
of ECU.
"The key element in these gifts is
to enhance the students' learning ex-
perience and resources available to

PICK OF THE WEEK: "Big Brother" on CBS
The East Carolinian

m
Emily Little
FEATURES EDITOR
Welcome to Sartre's Hell-10 people living in a
house with no windows, ubiquitous two-way mir-
rors and cameras shoved into every conceivable
corner, including over the showerhead.
As if such a situation weren't terrifying enough,
CBS has adopted the Orwellian title so that we
are aware of our societal descent into voyeuristic-
madness. The scariest part is that the'CBS net-
work did not come up with the idea itself. If you
don't count the more exciting, youth-oriented
"The Real World" on MTV, "Big Brother" program-
ming originated in Europe, where a trial season
ran with great success.
The people in this house have no electronics
and few cooking supplies, although their fenced-
in back yard does include a swimming pool and a
mini-farm with chickens and a lemon tree. Given
occasional instructions by the network gods who
observe and direct the show from their little booth
full of TVs, the housemates aim to peaceably co-
exist without killing each other until, one by one,
the general public votes members off by submit-
ted vote at the CBS.com Web site. The last resi-
dent left sitting gets half a million dollars.
The take is not as large as "Survivor" but, then
again, nobody has to eat grubs or sleep with snakes.
At first it seemed that "Big Brother" was a big
mistake. The first day involved the housemates wan-
dering around a lot and being polite. Nobody started

a fight, nobody had sex, and nobody went to a strip club and
came home in a police car. Of course, since they can't leave
the house, that last one would be difficult anyway, but it just
goes to show you how the CBS anti-privacy show differs sharply
from the relative freedom allotted to cast members
on "The Real World
Another significant difference is that these people
have already stopped acting. On "The Real World
the cameras shut off on occasion, so the cast pre-
serves and projects a constant persona when on
screen. In the "Big Brother" house, the cameras never
go away. The bedrooms are even equipped with
night-vision so that we can watch these people sleep.
After only four days, it was apparent that the cast
members had already grown accustomed to the cam-
eras and stopped thinking about them all the time.
The action got a little better as the first week went
on. We learned that one of the housemates has an
unhappy marriage and that another housemate is a
stripper. We watched a ladies' man hit on Miss Wash-
ington State, who is indeed a member of the cast,
even though his girlfriend was probably watching at
home. Good stuff for the nosy housewife or dorm
room bunny. But, don't expect these people to do
anything too outlandish. It's a little like watching
"48 Hours" without Dan Rather, and for way more
than two days. We have three months to get to know
these people and, lucky for us, they're on every single
night of the week.
That's right, you can catch normal people living
in a house all the time. And when the show's not
on, you can see them on the Web site. So if your
own life isn't nearly boring enough or you grow weary
of watching normal people inhabiting your own
home, this show is for you.

ACLU: Is rap music criminal?
Wednesday July 12, 2000
www.tec.ecu.edu
NEW IBERIA, La. (AP) -The
Iberia Parish sheriff should be or-
dered to return rap music con-
fiscated from a roller skating rink
and stop harrasing the rink's
owner, the ACLU says.
Skate Zone owner Frank
lorries and rink manager Tricia
Boudoin were arrested in Febru-
ary on charges of contributing
to thedelinquency of a minor.
They have not been prosecuted.
Sheriff Sid Hebert contends
that the rap lyrics started a brawl
outside the rink. He arrested
Torries and Boudoin several days
afterdeputies broke up the brawl
and confiscated the CDs.
Torries filed a civil rights suit
in U.S. District Court in
Lafayette.
'The lawsuit is asking whether
playing 'The Hokey Pokey' can
be considered a criminal act
said Joe Cook, executive
directorfor the Louisiana chap-
ter of the ACLU.
ACLU attorney E. Barton
Conradi is asking U.S. District
Court Judge Tucker Melancon to
declare the music constitution-
ally protected.
Only one CD was marked
"The lawsuit is asking
whether playing The
Hokey Pokey' can be
considered a criminal
act
Joe Cook
Executive director ACLU, Louisian
with a parental warning sticker.
The others all are edited versions
that play on the radio, Conradi
said.
In an affidavit to lorries' arrest
warrant, Sgt. Gerald Scott said the
confiscated music contained
"vile, obscene and indecent lan-
guage
"This type of music is the prin-
cipal cause of the large gang fights
that break out at this business
he wrote.
The sheriff's office has had to
break up five large fights at the
rink in the last four years, Hebert
said.
Hebert said he is sticking by his
decision. Parents have the right
to know business owners won't
play morally questionable music
to their children, he said.
The night the music was con-
fiscated, several hundred youths,
all between the ages of 12 and
21, attended a party for which or-
ganizers rented a St. Mary Parish
school bus to bring them to the
rink.
The fight broke out when the
youths were told to board the bus
to leave about 10:45 p.m. The
fight spilled outside into the
parking lot. Skates were thrown
through a rink's front window
and several windows on the bus,
a sheriff's report said.
In a letter to area clergy, Hebert
asks them to stand with him
against the "slowly eroding"
standards and corruption in the
community.
"The lyrics of these songs breed
violence in the minds of our chil-
dren, then unfortunately, they
act on what was planted in their
minds Hebert wrote.
Cook said pastors supporting
Hebert might consider what
would happen if the government
decided how they worship.
"You could be next Cook

SA
CAA dealt blow
as three members leave
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS EDITOR
The Colonial Athletic Association be-
gan the 1999-2000 season with nine
teams. Beginning next year, the CAA wi
be left with six teams and fight for sur-
vival.
The exodus from the conference be
gan last fall when ECU, already a
member of Conference USA in foot-
ball, opted to join the league for all
sports beginning in 2001. Later in
the year, American and Richmond
followed ECU's lead announcing
that they too would leave the CAA
for other conferences.
"The CAA is larger than any one
institution CAA commissioner
Thomas Yeager said following
Richmond's decision to leave.
Yeager's proclamation may be
tested this season as American, Rich-
mond and ECU will not be eligible to
compete.
The trend of leaving the CAA began
with the Pirates. In October of 1999, C-
USA formally invited ECU into the con-
ference. Based on C-USA's spot as one of
the nation's most visible conference,
ECU quickly accepted.
"Conference USA as a total con-
ference, I think is one of the pre-
mier athletic conferences in the coun-
try said ECU Athletic Director Mike
Hamrick following the announcement.
"It has been so uncomfortable being in
two conference. After 2000 we will be
able to say we are a member of one con-
ference
In December, the CAA's Council of
Presidents accepted ECU's resignation
from the conference.
As a condition of their resignation, the
CAA made ECU ineligible to compete for
CAA Championships in the 2000-2001
season.
"We continue to wish ECU success in
the future, but the Council determined
that it was inappropriate for a resigned
member to potentially represent the con-
ference in NCAA competition.
The move means that the Pirates will
have a CAA schedule next season but will
not be in the running for a regular sea-
son title, nor will they be invited to the
conference tournament. The only way
the Pirates will make it to an NCAA com-
petition will be by virtue of an at-large
bid.
In their last shot at a CAA title, the Pi-
rates would end up winning titles in three
Spring sports. The ECU women's swim-
ming, women's track & field and base-
ball teams took home titles in the 2000
season.
The spring would also see the CAA lose
"The CAA is larger
than any one institution
Thomas Yeager
CAA commissioner
two more members.
Virginia and the Washington D.C.
area have long been considered the
heartland of the CAA. Only two of the
conference's nine teams (ECU, UNC-
W) are from outside of the area.
This time it would be a pair of
schools from that area that would bid
farewell.
First, American University an-
nounced in April that it would be leav-
ing and joining the Patriot League in
the 2001-2002 season. A month later,
the University of Richmond an-
nounced that it too would be leaving
the CAA.
With it's current lineup missing three
of its charter members, the CAA heads
into the 2000-2001 season with uncer-
tainty.
Next years' CAA baseball tourna-
ment will be held in Manteo. This year,
ECU supplied most of the fans at the
event. The CAA will have top find a
way to replace the Pirate fans.
Many other. CAA events are held in
Richmond. While VCU, located in
Richmond, is still a member one of
the city's school, the Richmond Spi-
ders will not be competing.
The CAA now must look for new
members to fill the void left by the
three departures.
"The CAA has an expansion com-
mittee in place and that group will
continue to actively address issues
involving potential new members
said Yeager.
Indeed the CAA will have to work
quickly to find new members or the
CAA itself might be in danger.

Sampras wins 7th Wimbledon title
WIMBLEDON, England (AP)-
His lips quivering and eyes blink-
ing back tears, Pete SaTnpras
scanned the Centre Court sta-
dium, searching for the two
people with whom he wanted to
share the greatest moment in his
tennis career.
There, high in the stands, he
spotted his father, Sam, waving
his arms desperately to get his
son's attention, and his mother,
Georgia.
Sampras climbed into the
bleachers and shared a long em-
brace with his parents, who had
just watched their son make his-
tory by winning his seventh
Wimbledon title and record 13th
Grand Slam championship.
"It was nice to share it with my
parents he said. "I've wanted
them to be a part of it. It took me
a while to find them (in the
stands). Once I did, it was a great
moment
It was a rare display of emotion
by Sampras, whose parents had
never been to Wimbledon or seen
him win any Grand Slam. They
flew in from Southern California
only the day before.
' . f- . �, f" .�?"�' (
fr '�' t' t �'
Sampras rewarded them by
overcoming Patrick Rafter 6-7
(10), 7-6 (5), 6-4, 6-2 Sunday to
pass Roy Emerson for the most
Slam titles and tie Willie
Renshaw, a player in the 1880s,
for the most Wimbledon victo-
ries.
"Win or lose today, I was go-
ing to invite them here he said.
"I'm glad they hopped on the
plane and made the trip
The only other time Sampras'
parents saw him play in a Grand
Slam tournament was at the
1992 U.S. Open, where he lost in
the semifinals to Goran
Ivanisevic.
"My parents are not tennis
parents he said. "You see a lot
of cases where parents get too
involved. I'm my own man. They
always give me my indepen-
dence
There was another emotional
family celebration at Wimbledon

women's final.
It was Venus' first Grand Slam
title, and the second for the Wil-
liams sisters. Serena won the U.S.
Open last year.
Venus and Serena teamed
Monday to become the first sis-
ters ever to win the Wimbledon
women's doubles title, beating
Julie Halard-Decugis and Ai
Sugiyama 6-3, 6-2. The match
had been put off until Monday
due to Sunday's rain.
The Williams sisters now have
a total of nine Grand Slam titles
between them in singles (2),
doubles (3) and mixed doubles
(4).
Sampras' victory capped the
most challenging of his seven
title runs at Wimbledon. Coping
with acute tendinitis above his
left ankle from the second round
on, he couldn't practice between
matches.
"It really is amazing how this
tournament just panned out for
me he said. "I didn't really feel
like I was going to win here. 1 felt
I was struggling
The final had four hours of
rain delays and ended in fading
light at 8:S7 p.m after 3 hours,
2 minutes of actual play. If Rafter,
the two-time U.S. Open cham-
pion, had won the fourth set,
they would have had to return
Monday.
Sampras said before the match
that as long as his right arm held
up, he would be a threat. It held
up fine.
Sampras served 27 aces at up to
133 mph, and had 46 more
unreturned serves as he averaged
a remarkable 123 mph on first
serves.
Sampras faced only two break
points and won once more with-
out yielding a single game on his
serve. Rafter couldn't break him
in 21 service games. In his seven
title matches, Sampras has
dropped serve only four times in
131 games.
The only time Sampras buck-
led was in the first-set tiebreaker
when he double-faulted to lose
the set.
"We all choke said Sampras,
who wound up with 12 double-
faults. "No matter who you are,
you just get in the heat of the
moment
The match turned in the sec-
ond set tiebreaker, when Rafter
wilted after taking a 4-1 lead. He
double-faulted, then netted a
forehand to let Sampras tie it.
Sampras then smacked a service
winner and won his fifth straight
point with a stunning inside-out
forehand crosscourt that zipped
past Rafter. Two points later, he
put the set away with a solid vol-
ley.
"I felt it slipping away
Sampras said. "He lost his nerve
at 4-1 in the second breaker.
From a matter of feeling like I was
going to lose the match, I felt like
I was going to win the match
within two minutes
Rafter admitted the tension got
to him.
"I did get a little bit tight he
said. "It was an opportunity for
me to go up two sets to love.
From there it's a very tough po-
sition, as Pete knows, to come
back from that. But that's what
happens when you get tight
Sampras has won 28 straight
matches at Wimbledon, extend-
ing his mark there to 53-1 over
the past eight years.

LOUDON, N.H. (AP)-Tony
Stewart believes his sometimes
difficult rivalry with Kenny Irwin
was one of the reasons for their
rise in the NASCAR ranks.
So he felt good about dedicat-
ing his victory in the New En-
gland 300 on Sunday to Irwin,
killed Friday when his car
crashed in practice at New Hamp-
shire International Speedway.
"We weren't always on the best
of terms, but we always brought
out the best in each other
Stewart said. "We always re-
spected each other
Facing a fuel problem Sunday,
Stewaft got lucky and won the
rain-delayed race, which was
shortened by 27 laps.
He dominated, leading 156 of
273 laps. A year ago, a fuel mis-
calculation by his crew chief cost
him the race.
This time, a decision to remain
on the track once he got the lead
before the first of two rain-caused
red flags, proved decisive. He was
happy for crew chief Greg
Zipadelli, whose bad math was
costly last year.
But most of all, he was happy
he was able to come through for
Irwin.
"I want to win this one for
Kenny Stewart said during a
rain delay halfway through the
event. "I'm sure he's riding along
with all of us this weekend
Meanwhile, Mike Helton,
NASCAR's chief operating officer,
said the cause of Irwin's crash re-
mained undetermined. The
death came eight weeks after
Busch series driver Adam Petty
was killed in the same low-
banked third turn.
Stewart's Pontiac, like the cars
of the other 42 drivers, had a de-
cal that read: "In Memory of
Kenny Irwin
A slightly subdued crowd of
101,000 filed out quietly after
NASCAR called the race. There
were no post-race celebrations,
and Stewart didn't take a victory
lap as the rain began to fall
harder.
Stewart and Irwin had raced
each other hard for most of the
last decade, starting with midg-
ets and sprints before both
moved to NASCAR.
Last October, they banged into
each other twice in Martinsville,
Va. The second collision side-
lined Stewart, who threw heat
shields from his shoes at Irwin,
an act that resulted in a $5,000
fine from NASCAR.
"We had our ups and downs
Stewart said of Irwin. "But it was
two guys pushing each other
hard
Stewart said he was badly
shaken by the death of Irwin.
"It was a wakeup call, a reality
check Stewart said. "I was late
getting started this morning be-
cause I didn't want to miss all the
tributes to Kenny on TV. I still
think I'm going to walk around
the corner and find him there
Last July, Stewart dominated
late in the race but lost when he
ran out of fuel with less than
three laps remaining. His crewin-
explicably failed to bring him in
for a splash of gas even though
he was safely in the lead.
That blunder cost him what
would have been his first career
victory. Later, he won three times
on his way to a fourth place fin-
ish in the points race, capping
the best rookie season in history.
This time, he would have been
forced to pit with about 20 laps
left.
