Oldest residence hall to

Nancy Kuck
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Jarvis Residence Hall will
soon reopen after under
going an extensive 30-
month long renovation. The residence
hall will house some of the campus's top
scholars, who are due to move in Aug.
12.
This year, University Housing Services
decided to make special requirements
for students interested in residing in
Jarvis.
"All students must participate in com-
munity service projects and take a
course in Educational Foundation Lead-
ership said Manny Amaro, director of
Housing Services.
Also, every'jarvis resident must be in
good academic standing with no judi-
cial pending against them.
Those who applied to live in Jarvis
had to complete a special application
given along with the standard applica-
tion that all students receive when ap-
plying to live in a residence hall.
Those who were accepted include
"Not a dollar of state money
went into the project
Manny Amaro
Director of Housing Services
ECU scholars and leadership scholars, as
well as some freshmen accepted based on
their high school performance and lead-
ership activities.
"No applicant was turned away
Amaro said.
The newly refurbished residence hall
boasts a baby grand piano, which graces
the mezzanine overlooking the lower
floor, along with a renovated staircase
and hardwood floors.
"We replaced the bathrooms, added
stairs, restored the exterior space in the
activity room and rewired the building
for more computer access said Bruce
Flye, director of Facility Services.
Amaro said that the lavish effect was
achieved with little extra expense. The
entire cost of thq renovation was $5.7
million, which was funded through a
loan that will be paid off using student
housing fees.
"Not a dollar of state money went into
the project said Amaro.
According to Amaro, not all renova-
tions were cosmetic. The building re-
quired significant structural changes as
well. Old dry mortar between bricks
was falling out and support structures
rested uneasily on shims driven in
nearly a century ago. Building codes ne-
cessitated all renovations.
The privilege of living in Jarvis also
comes with a price.
The cost per semester of residing in
Jarvis is $2,750, as compared to the cost
of living in an academic residence hail
such as Belk Hall, which costs $2,700
per semester. All non-academic resi-
dence halls such as Fletcher Hall cost
$2,600 per semester.
Although Jarvis will be able to house
up to 140 students, it does not seem
likely that the renovation will help to
relieve the crowding on campus, since
the total number of beds in the resi-
dence hall decreased during the con-
struction.
"We lost 10 spaces all together
Amaro said.
Named for Gov. Thomas J. Jarvis,
who is widely regarded as the father of
ECU, the 1909 structure is the oldest
building on campus.

ECU revises
expansion plan
Previous areas no
longer threatened
Nancy Kuck
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
ECU officials recently revised
a controversial expansion plan
which will now keep all construc-
tion within existing borders of
campus for the next 13 years.
The university devised plans to
expand into surrounding resi-
dential areas of Greenville over
the next eight years in February
of this year. This plan was met
with opposition from
homeowners, some of whom
were retired ECU professors. The
Board decided to hault expansion
into these neighborhoods.
"We are not going to buy
homes that are not for sale said
Thomas Bayllss III, a member of
the ECU Board of Trustees. "We
are sensitive to neighborhoods
and we don't want to take it away
The Board does not have will
to do away with the homes
The university then proposed
expanding into the downtown
Greenville area, otherwise
known as 'uptown' Greenville.
This time the Board was faced
with opposition from local busi-
ness owners whose establish-
ments were threatened to be shut
down. To resolve the matter, stu-
dents petitioned along with lo-
cal entrepreneurs to stop campus
expansion into the downtown
area. Their protests were success-
ful, and the trustees removed
both areas from the expansion
plan.
Although citizens' opposition
has helped to hault expansion,
the main reason for the revision
of the plan is in fact due to a lack
of funding.
"There is not sufficient money
in the bond referendum to move

N.C. State crime study
yields positive findings
(U-WIRE) RALEIGH, N.CRe-
searcherj at N.C. State have com-
pleted a study involving crime
attitudes among North Carolin-
ians. This study revealed that
North Carolina citizens generally
feel positive about the state's
criminal justice system and
school safety, and perceive that
violent crime is decreasing.
The survey, which was con-
ducted in 1999, includes re-
sponses from 3,000 randomly se-
lected people within each of the
three geographic regions of the
state-Eastern, Central and West-
em North Carolina. The charac-
teristics of the respondents match
the overall representation of the
state itself, such as gender, race,
age and income level. The 37-
question telephone survey is very
similar to one conducted in 1997,
and the results can be compared
for benchmarking purposes, Vasu
said. Respondents were asked
about their own experiences with
crime and their perceptions of
crime and law enforcement.
The results of the survey indi-
cate that not only has self-re-
ported victimization stayed the
same since 1997, but the attitudes
toward violent crime have im-
proved since then. 12.6 percent
of respondents felt that
violent crime had recently de-
creased, compared with 5.8 per-
cent who felt that way In 1997.
38.9 percent of people surveyed
felt that violent crime has recently
increased in 1999, down from
55.7 percent in 1997. The study
also shows that individual percep-
tions about crime and safety are
influenced by factors such as gen-
der, race, education level, income
and age.
Dr. Michael Vasu, professor of
political science at NCSU and lead
researcher on the study, believes
that these results are encouraging.
"Over the last four to five years,
the state has invested a lot of
money in community policing,
which is a real shift in the way
we police Vasu said.
"They're assigning officers to
public housing complexes and
particular neighborhoods.
They're requiring police to inter-
act more and more on a daily ba-

The N.C. General Assembly

that will benefit all state univer-
sities and colleges. It will be voted
on in November, and if approved,
ECU would get a $190.6 million
portion of the $3.1 billion bond.
This bond money would then

Some Duke students to become freshmen early STUDY

(U-WIRE) DURHAM, N.C
The Duke University early ma-
triculation pilot program seems
to be flying high.
Twenty-three students from
the Class of 2004 arrived on East
Campus this month to begin
summer studies as part of the
new program that allows stu-
dents with few Advanced Place-
ment credits to get a head start
on their freshman years.
Because of the 36-credit gradu-
ation requirement, students who
do not enter with college credits
are forced to take two semesters
with five classes apiece. This
course load often adds a substan-
tial academic burden, especially
because most of these students
have work-study responsibilities
and may be involved in other
school activities. The problem is
also severe for athletes, who are
burdened with workouts and
team trips.
Program officials, led by Assis-
tant Dean of Student Develop-
ment Carmen Tillery, were ini-
tially concerned that the athletes
and non-athletes in the program
might not mix socially or that
athletes' workout schedules
would preclude them from the
program's social activities, in-
cluding a tour of Durham, a visit
to the North Carolina Museum
of Art and an outing at a Durham
Bulls game.
But Trinity senior Amy Yuen,
one of the students' resident ad-
visers, said the program's direc-
tors told the 13 enrolled athletes
that their obligation was to the
program first, not preseason
training. NCAA rules prohibit

sis with the citizens. There's been
an investment by the Governor's
Crime Commission in after-
school programs and juvenile day
treatment centers said Vasu.
However, not everyone shares
this sudden higher opinion of
crime in North Carolina.
The study found that, overall,
Hispanics were more likely to be
shot at, knifed, attacked or victim-
ized by sexual assault than to face
less violent forms of victimization
such as robbery. Also, women and
the elderly are much more likely
to feel unsafe after dark than men.

N.C. senator mentioned as duke
possible Gore running mate
from page 3
Democratic leaders have taken
notice of North Carolina's new-
est senator and have included
John Edwards' name on lists of
possible running mates for Vice
President Al Gore.
Many say Edwards' advantage
would be his youthful presence
and charm- not his experience
in national politics. In recent
days, the 47-year-old Edwards
has gotten a good bit more atten-
tion.
"This is a serious proposition
White House Chief of Staff John
Podesta said Friday, referring to
the vice president's consideration
of Edwards.
"When that first came up
people said, Really?' But when
they thought about it, it actually
seemed plausible, given what he's
already accomplished and the
skills he brings to the table said
Podesta, who is not working on
Gore's campaign, although Presi-
dent Clinton has been a key strat-
egist for Gore. "I think they're
thinking about it in the context
of looking at a bunch of people,
but it's not an endless list. That
sets him apart from a fair num-
ber of his colleagues
Edwards deflects questions
about running with Gore.
"I don't have some inflated
view of my own importance
Edwards said in a recent inter-
view. "The bottom line is, I'm in
my second year In the Senate.
And I'm working hard
Edwards, a trial lawyer from
Raleigh, refuses to say whether he
has been interviewed by Gore or
the team vetting candidates. He
won't even say if he'd take the
job if offered.
But he has the makings of a
perfect media-friendly candidate:
affable, easygoing, dashing, ar-
ticulate and quick on his feet. In
his 1998 campaign, focus groups
watched him for minutes before
concluding he was their choice.
"It's fair to say that John
Edwards brings an array of
strengths to the table, including
physical appearance Daschle
said. "Obviously it's his intellect,
it's his character, his family, his
hard work ethic, but his appear-
ance is also a consequential fac-

New York Sen. Chuck
Schumer, who unseated the pow-
erful Sen. Alfonse D'Amato in
1998, calls Edwards "a natural
And Sen. Bob Kerrey, the Ne-
braska Democrat who has had his
own sights set on the White
House, says Edwards could make
an immediate impact.
"He's ready for prime time
now. Definitely Kerrey said.
Even if Edwards doesn't get the
nod, the mention is his name on
candidate lists is a sign of his
rapid rise in national Democratic
Party politics.
The Gore campaign has asked
him to speak on the vice
president's behalf across the'
country. And Senate Minority
Leader Tom Daschle, who invited
Edwards to speak this year at a
party dinner in South Dakota,
calls Edwards one of the
chamber's three or four most
promising Democrats.

permitted to work out on their

Since then, the athletes have
been very involved, and women's

to meet non-athletes before her

And this is exactly what Tjllery
had in mind. Tillery, Yuen and
co-adviser Domanic Smith
wanted the experience to mimic
freshman living. For example,
the students are living in
Blackwell Dormitory on East
Campus and are subject to the
same rules they will face in the
fall.
And most of the students'
problems with the program have
been those typical to a college
freshman. "We hear complaints

OPINION
The East Carolinian 5
opinion9tec.ecu.edu
We urge our
campus
administrators
to talk to each
other, to find
out how their
decisions
impact other
departments.
It may make
everyone's job
a little easier.
OUR VIEW
It seems you can't turn a corner on campus these
days without running into a big orange barrel and a
backhoe. Campus expansion is in full swing, making ECU
more impressive with every dug-up piece of concrete.
Although we at TEC applaud the university's ambi-
tion and hard work, we are a little concerned about the
apparent lack of organized thought about the whole
thing.
Take Jarvis Residence Hall, for example. The remod-
eling has turned an asbestos-heavy building into a luxu-
rious palace, while Fletcher is still a cancer-causing dump.
Rumors of a pedestrian campus have been circulat-
ing all over the university, but none of the organizations
involved agree on what exactly a "pedestrian campus"
is. Apparently, we'll know when we get one.
One thing we've learned in all our time of covering
events at ECU is that although individual people within
departments know their jobs and do them well, they
have no idea what anyone else does. We urge our cam-
pus administrators to talk to each other, to find out how
their decisions impact other departments. Not only will
it help with the barrels and the parking, but it may make
everyone's job a little easier, too.
ADijeack IN MY OPINION
Men should have say in decision
The abortion rights issue has long
been a universally controversial
topic. Some see it as murder, as a
form of birth control or as a matter
of personal choice. Of course, all in-
dividual views of abortion are just
opinions and the following article
details my own.
I am glad that the Supreme Court
ruled a pro-choice verdict. That was
a monumental decision. It put the
power in the hands of the people.
Women do not have to be told what
to do and what not to do with their
bodies. Is It fair for women to make
a decision about the future of an
embryo's life alone? Do men have a
say?
Hence, I would like to consider
abortion from the male perspective.
What about the man's input into
abortion decisions? Doesn't it take
two chromosomes-one from a
woman and one from a man-to cre-
ate life? Why is it that men don't
have a say in the fate of an embryo
and fetus? I'm sure they care. Does
this really seem fair? Think about it,
it's the man's baby too! He had an
equal and salient part in creating the
child-to-be and he doesn't get to say
anything about the life of the child.
While America is striving to right
the wrongs done to women since be-
fore the Suffrage Act of 1920, they
are not being fair to men. In child
custody cases the child normally
goes to the woman. If the father gets
to see his child it's not for the same
amount of time each year, in many
cases. And, let's face it, stay-at-home
dads get no respect from society.
Men are supposed to be making the
almighty dollar.
When a married couple with chil-
dren decides to divorce, men are au-
tomatically expected to pay up. I
didn't think that parenting was all
about finances even though I know
that in child rearing it is important.
But you can't expect for a man to be
a father if all he is doing is offering
the monetary component in raising
his child.
It all starts with pro-choice. You
give women an inch and they take
a mile. You let them single-handedly
decide the fate of the child that they
share with a man, then they get to
single-handedly make all of the de-
cisions regarding the children. It's
not fair. Pro-choice is not fair to the
men who want the child. Men have
no power.
I recognize that all situations are
not alike, but in those instances to
which my opinion applies, men
should have some power. It's not all
about being a mom or a dad, it's
about being a parent. It's about hav-
ing equality in parenting-mother or
father.

IN MY'
Smokers take your ashes elsewhere
Regardless of how those around them feel,
smokers will always try to defend their right
to smoke and continuously carp about the
freedom that it requires. Any attempt to stop
people from doing that which they feel they
are free to do is met with the harshest rebel-
lion. Well, freedom is a concept worth fight-
ing for but you have to look at it in context.
Smoking does not belong in this fight for free-
dom because smoking usually affects those
that have to sit In the gray haze. No matter
how much a smoker claims it is not up to oth-
ers to decide or that smoking is their "right
it does affect everyone around them and there-
fore does not fall under the same freedom ar-
gument that other ideas can claim.
Let's take a case scenario of your basic
smoker. We'll call him 'Hemming Flemming
smokes a pack or more a day and begins as
soon as he wakes up. His room reeks of smoke
and the walls have yellowed because of it. This
will cost money for the landlord to repaint.
The carpet reeks of smoke and is littered with
burn holes from ashes. More expense for the
landlord, all due to Flemming's addiction.
Now the smoker's roommate says that he'd
rather Flemming not smoke outside his room,
but Flemming sneaks the chance when he can.
Now the other roommate's possessions are
contaminated with smoke. The roommate's
books are forever tainted with smoke and yel-
lowing pages. His couch has ashes on it and a
small bum hole or two. The house now smells
like smoke and he has to put up with it be-
cause of his roommate. He will suffer perma-
nent damage because of this idiot's addiction.
The smoker and friends go out to dinner
and all present have to put up with a cloud of
smoke while eating because Flemming refuses
to leave the table for his craving, ruining the
meal for everyone. All of this is due to this guy's
addiction.
They leave in one Car and everyone has to
put up with having the window down so his
addiction can blow out the window. And he
drops ashes on the floor by accident, another
small burn hole. The car begins to reek of smoke
and the owner has to clean the smell out. And
on the way home, Flemming asks the driver to
stop at the Texaco station so he can buy a pack
of smokes. All of this is due to this guy's addic-
tion.
Now his friends and everyone else around
him have to put up with second hand smoke,
increased risk of cancer and all the pain in the
butt requirements that are needed to be friends
with a smoker, all due to this guy's addiction.
And these are just his dose friends. This does
not include all the strangers he encounters that
have to put up with it. So you see that smoking
affects everyone, not just the smoker. So what
if he is not allowed the same freedom as other
habits and therefore is hassled? He should leave
to go smoke somewhere else. He should have
to pay high prices for the dgs to offset the can-

So smokers, I don't really want to take away
your freedom. I just want you to come up with
an alternative way to feed your disgusting ad-

can achieve that, I will be smoking's biggest

get. But until then, go to the middle of the

ONLY HUMAN
SALT LAKE CITY (AP)A Utah
prison inmate who had a tes-
ticle removed after being in-
jured in a confrontation
with corrections officers has
asked for more than $5 mil-
lion in a lawsuit against the
state.
Jason Kirk, 20, whose record
includes felony convictions
for theft, aiding an escape
and vehicle theft, was shot
in the groin with a gun that
shoots rubber balls after re-
peatedly refusing to go back
to his cell on Nov. 11,1999.
The lawsuit, which names 11
Utah State Prison officers as
defendants, including Of-
ficer Robert Grace as the
alleged shooter, was filed in
U.S. District Court on Tues-
day. It says Kirk suffered se-
vere physical pain and
mental distress because of
the incident.
"This was a nonlethal
round Corrections spokes-
man Jack Ford said. "Unfor-
tunately, it hit him in the
groin.
That was not the intended
target
The suit alleges the officers
conspired to violate Kirk's
civil rights and the shooting
"constitutes cruel and un-
usual
punishment under the 8th
Amendment" of the U.S.
Constitution.
The suit says doctors had to
remove Kirk's left testicle and
surgically repair his genitals
as a result of the
shooting.
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP)A
woman arrested this week for
having an unkempt lawn was
found dead in her
yard Wednesday, police said.
Karen Loomis Crawford, 49,
who had health problems in-
cluding severe back pain,
was apparently doing yard
work in 99-degree heat
when she was found, said
police investigator Frank
Fitzgerald.
An autopsy was to determine
how she died, Fitzgerald said.
Police don't believe foul play
was involved.
Huntsville Community De-
velopment Division officials
gave Crawford a warning in
April that she must mow her
lawn by May 3.

Campus construction
upsets balance in lots
Emily Little
FEATURES EDITOR
Sometimes, the greatest vie
tory of the day is finding a
parking space. Whether you
creep around the side streets or post a
lookout in your favorite commuter lot,
that $120 sticker never seems to get
you close enough
to campus. All the
while, freshmen
add to the lineup,
and construction
tears up what few
spaces there are be-
tween 5th and 10th
streets.
It may feel like a nightmare while
you're circling with the other auto vul-
tures, but according to David Santa
Ana, director of parking and transpor-
tation, the situation is under control.
Although the private lot behind the
General Classroom Building is gone for
good, making way for the new Science
"Hopefully within a short
period of time after school

David Santa Ana
Director of Parking and Transportation
and Technology Building, the other
lots are only temporarily under con-
struction. Facilities Services is putting
in a new steam line that will run up
College Hill. When the line is in place,
the parking lots will be repaved.
"Hopefully within a short period of
time after school starts we'll have our
parking back Santa Ana said.
So that solves the short-term prob-
lem. But that still leaves the ever-in-
creasing freshman class and future
plans for a pedestrian campus.
According to
University Archi-
tect Bruce Flye,
when the original
plan was drawn up
in 1991 for the pe-
destrian campus, it
was meant as an
ideal. ECU was to
be a campus for the students, where no
cars got in the way of free-flowing traf-
fic. But when recruitment began to sky-
rocket, the idea became a necessity.
"It's no longer a matter of an ideal,
as an allocation of resources Flye said.

PICK OF THE WEEK: Chicken Run
Emily Little
FEATURES EDITOR
Contrary to popular belief,
chickens are not stupid. A little
naive maybe, but, according to
Chicken Run, the new claymation
film starring the voice of
Mel Gibson, chickens are
organized, plotting crea-
tures who can read and
write and have teeth and
opposable thumbs.
Rocky (Gibson), the
American circus rooster,
flies into a farm full of En-
glish hens. Formerly pro-
ducers for Tweedy's egg
farm, the girls now face a
horrible fate with Mrs.
Tweedy's new chicken-pie-mak-
ing machine, so they ask Rocky
to teach them to fly away. Natu-
rally, since they are chickens,
they lack somewhat in ability.
The story makes good enter-
tainment for the kiddies, but the
comedy Is aimed straight at the
adults. The old RAF rooster who
officially commands the hens
continually makes references to
his World War II days, referring
to Rocky as "overpaid, over-
sexed, and over here The
American, meanwhile, plays his
part by seducing all the women
with his clever puns. For in-
stance, he gets drunk, sticks his
tail feather in his drink and calls
it a "cocktail When the hens try
to fly, a pair of rats sits by and
rolls out one pun after the other
about flying chickens.
But, it's not all fun and games.
There is suspense during Rocky's
daring rescue of Ginger, his true
chicken love. And the
claymation is so well done, you
really worry about whether or
not the clan will escape the evil
Mrs. Tweedy. Right up to the end,
you'll be holding your
breath.
Chicken Run is not a Robin
Williams kind of riot where
you'll be rolling in the aisles
and doubling over into your
popcorn. But, it is one snick-
ering moment after the
other. If you can catch all the
jokes, you'll laugh through
the entire movie. If these
were humans facing the
same fate, it would be a hor-
rible story. But the chickens are
portrayed so accurately, aside
from the reading and the oppos-
able thumbs and the teeth, it's
pure entertainment.

PARKING
from page 6
"The feasibility of a parking deck is when you've
got no more parking whatsoever
David Santa Ana
Director of Parking and Transit
Now he and Facilities Services
are working with Transit and
Parking and Traffic to plan a
course of action to accommo-
date the swelling freshman class
and the shrinking parking lots.
When the new dining hall is
constructed behind Fletcher
Residence Hall, for instance, sev-
eral resident spaces will have to
go. That may mean that the
freshman lot will be converted
to a resident lot, and freshmen,
currently taking up 1,100 spaces,
will no longer be allowed park-
ing permits.
According to Santa Ana, the
university is also considering
purchasing the Daryll's parking
lot across 10th Street.
Then there's the parking deck.
An expensive undertaking that
has opened up controversy in
the neighborhood about its lo-
cation, the parking deck is cur-
rently little more than a dim
possibility.
"It's anybody's guess Flye
said. "It varies with the fund-
ing Most of the money would
probably come from parking
fees.
"The feasibility of a parking
deck is when you've got no more
parking whatsoever Santa Ana
said. And last semester, he said,
on any given day there were 400
to 500 vacant spots at Dowdy-
Ficklen.

Web site to offer forum
for selling anything
SAN FRANCISCO (AP)�
People who want to sell software,
music, photos, written works or
even advice will have a new place
to do business as of Monda�a
sort of digital consignment shop
on the Internet that promises to
make the most of the hot new
category of "peer-to-peer com-
puting
The OfficeFront feature being
unveiled by HotDispatch Inc. of
Mountainview, Calif will allow
people to sell any Web-deliver-
able service, �basically anything
that can be downloaded to a
computer. HotDispatch adminis-
ters the seller's Web page, handles
the transaction and exchanges
the money.
To build customers, the service
initially will be offered for free at
http:www.hotdispatch.com.
"We like to think of this as an
analog to Yahoo! or
Amazon.corn's Zshops, where a
person puts items they own up
for sale, except in this case it's
only things that can be digitally
delivered said Hazem Sayad,
who co-founded HotDispatch
and holds the title of chief dis-
patcher.
Like Napster Inc. and its mush-
rooming number of file-swap-
ping imitators that are vexing the
music and video industries,
HotDispatch's software makes
the most of the decentralized
nature of the Internet, and its
business model largely depends
on it not filtering the content
being bought and sold.
Its emergence suggests the sec-
tor is here to stay despite efforts
by the recording and motion pic-
ture industries to protect their
copyrighted collections.
Napster faces a court hearing
in U.S. District Court in San Fran-
cisco on Wednesday, where the
Recording Industry Association
of America is seeking an injunc-
tion that would effectively shut
down http:www.napster.com.
The R1AA also joined the Motion
Picture Association of America
Thursday in suing Scour.com,
contending that http:
www.scour.com is "Napster with
movies
But several other companies in
the past month have announced
they've received venture capital
funding for peer-to-peer online
exchanges, and plan to be up-
and-running by fall. Researchers
predict 600 million personal
computers will be networked by
2003, representing an attractive
opportunity for those who cre-
ate a viable business plan.
Peer-to-peer computing is a
phrase that has circulated in the
technology sector for decades,
but only now is it becoming part
of the American consciousness.
The idea draws on the original
philosophy of the Internet Itself,
which was created by the U.S.
military establishment as a de-
centralized web of intercon-
nected data-transfer machines.
As it is being used now, if a
person wants information such
as a particular song, a query goes
out to 10 computers, then gets
relayed again and again to thou-
sands of other computers in sec-
onds until the song is found.
The technology does not re-
quire centralized server comput-
ers like those that Napster uses
to provide a clearinghouse for the
music its users exchange, but
many companies are devising
plans to become middlemen for
peer-to-peer, or P2P, transactions.
HotDispatch's Sayed called
OfficeFront a combination of
business-to-business and P2P
that puts the onus on the seller
instead of the company to pro-
vide accurate and legal digital
information, much like eBay.
Despite the recent enthusiasm
for P2P computing, some ana-
lysts warn of pitfalls.
"With the Internet, it certainly
could rise (in popularity) to a
mammoth scale said Greg
Blatnik, vice president at the
Internet research and consulting
firm Zona Research.
"Survivor" wanted by police
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) �
Dinner at The Olive Garden
might cause one of the remain-

more indigestion than any of the
rats, rays and rice she's eaten on
the South China Sea island.
Former Greensboro resident
Kelly Wiglesworth, 23, is wanted
by the local police department
on a five-year-old warrant for
using a stolen credit card.
Police said Wiglesworth and
Steven Patrick Winther, 26, went
on a spending spree with a credit
card belonging to Norma Jane
Foster.
"She was involved in stealing
a credit card and using it said
Sgt. K.D. Meredith of the Greens-
boro Police Department.
The crime carries a maximum
sentence of 15 months in jail, but
Meredith said first offenders usu-

ally are sentenced to probation.
Wiglesworth, who guides river-

wildly popular CBS program
"Survivor
Police said Wiglesworth and
Winther bought a meal at a local
Olive Garden restaurant. A wait-
ress there was arrested after she
received a $30 rip for a $37.90
bill, according to court records.
Andrea Martin accepted
Foster's Visa card even though
she knew it didn't belong to ei-
ther of the customers she served,
the records said.
The case against Martin was
dismissed in 1996 after she per-
formed 75 hours of community
service.
In 1997, Wiglesworth's name
came up on a national crime
computer when she was stopped
by police in Las Vegas. Greens-
boro police were asked if they
wanted to extradite Wiglesworth,
but local police decided the crime
she's accused of wasn't severe
enough to go to the expense of
bringing her back, Meredith said.
"If she comes into North Caro-
lina and we find her, we'd arrest
her Meredith said.
Wiglesworth could not be
reached for comment through
her family Thursday.

Traditional northern sport's popularity
growing due to transplants, Hurricanes
STEPHEN SCHRAMM
SPORTS EDITOR
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP)-Sean Blye has his eye on the Stanley
Cup, but he's got some growing up to do first. He stands
just 4-foot-l and weighs under 100 pounds.
He is only 7, after all.
"I just want to be a hockey player Sean said.
His father, Jim Blye, says Sean and his brother Danny, 9, caught
the hockey bug last year after taking ice-skat-
ing lessons at the Cary Icehouse in suburban
Raleigh.
They saw the hockey players coming in and
out, and they imagined that it'd be pretty fun
Blye said.
The boys' interest was further piqued by
watching their hometown Carolina Hurricanes
and Sean's favorite player, Ron Francis.
The story is the same In many areas of the
South.
Coaches, parents and others involved in
youth hockey throughout the region have seen
a big increase in interest in the last several years.
Teams like the Hurricanes, Atlanta Thrashers, Nashville Predators,
Tampa Bay Lightning and Florida Panthers are making inroads in
areas that have long been strongholds of college basketball, football
and auto racing.
It wasn't that way at first, said Brian Mehm, youth and amateur
coordinator for the Hurricanes since the franchise, formerly the
Hartford Whalers, relocated here in 1997.
"I used to go to clinics, and I always asked kids, 'How many of
you are Hurricanes fans? How many of you are hockey fans? Mehm
said.
"There was never a response, just one or two kids. Now,
everybody's hand goes up, and they're asking me all about the play-
ers. It's just unbelievable how much It's picked up
John Latreille and Mike Flanagan both coach 14- to 16-year-olds
in Nashville, Tenn. Latreille, originally from Quebec City, and
Flanagan, a Toronto native, said there has been a similar youth
hockey explosion in Nashville since the Predators came to town.
Enrollment in youth programs has jumped from fewer than 300
youths to more than 1,000 in the past five years, Latreille said.
"Some kids who were dreaming of being
Jaromir Jagr in Pittsburgh, maybe now they're
dreaming of being Gary Roberts in North Caro-
lina Flanagan said.
Jeff Daniels, Hurricanes forward and native of
Oshawa, Ontario, says U.S. teams were taken
lightly when he was playing youth hockey.
"You'd play a team from the States, and you'd
go, 'This is going to be an easy game Daniels
said.
That has changed. While Canadians once ac-
counted for most of the NHL players, the pro
rosters now are divided evenly among Canadi-
ans, Europeans and Americans. Most Americans
in the league are from the Northeast, but that, too, will change,
Daniels predicts.
Canadian players have dominated the sport for so long, he said,
because they eat, sleep and breathe hockey as they are growing up.

"That's the thing in Canada-as soon as you're
walking they put a pair of skates on you he said.
But, as the game continues to spread throughout
the United States, so will the hockey culture, which
in turn will produce top-level players, Daniels said.
Hockey's growing popularity can be felt at ECU.
The ECU roller hockey club recently finished its
first season. Made up of a mix of 15-20 kids from
both the Northeast and the South.
"Everybpdy's like, 'Wow, we have a hockey
team?" said club member Chris Glennon.
Glennon is one of many new North Carolina
residents who emigrated from the Northeast.
Glennon moved to Raleigh in the Fall of 1998 af-
ter growing up a hockey fan in Cape Cod, Mass.
"I think much of (the growth of popularity of
hockey) is due to people from up north who come
down here and still want to see hockey Glennon
said. "A lot of people grew up with it and still care
about it
Another reason for hockey's growth in North
Carolina is due to the Hurricanes, who sponsor
street, inline and ice hockey at all levels. Through
efforts like the Mobile Hockey Tour, which last
month brought top youth roller-hockey teams to
Raleigh's Entertainment and Sports Arena-the
Hurricanes' home ice-the 'Canes are promoting the
game and broadening their fan base.
The Hurricanes' Rink Rats program puts 6- to 8-
year-olds on the ice between periods at home
games. "It's a big thrill for them Mehm said. "We
announce their score, and sometimes we have
video clips from the game on the Jumbotron
John Biederman, president of the Raleigh Youth
Hockey Association, says his organization is hav-
ing a hard time keeping up with the demand.
The association had 710 children on the ice last
fall, up 200 from the year before. It has added a
spring league and many new teams in all age
groups, from 4 to 18.
But Biederman said he is going to have to start
turning youths away. There are just three rinks In
the Raleigh area, with the Entertainment and Sports
Arena available only occasionally.
"Anybody can knock in a couple of posts and
"Everybody's like, 'Wow, we have a
hockey team?
Chris Glennon
Club member
you've got a soccer field, or throw down a couple
of T-shirts and there's a Softball field, but you can't
do that with a sheet of ice Biederman said.
David Cole, the Thrashers' manager of fan de-
velopment, said while his team has stirred enor-
mous interest among Atlanta youths, it doesn't au-
tomatically translate into the area immediately
producing pro prospects.
"To get to that next level, you've got to get to
the absolute best competition, and for the next
few years, the best competition is not here " he
said.
Manny Hawkins, who plays in an adult league
out of the Cary Icehouse and coaches 14- and 15-
year-olds, said one problem is there are few oppo-
nents for the young hockey converts. While grow-
ing up in Buffalo, N.Y his team had eight or nine
potential opponents within a half-hour's drive, he
said.
"The team I coached this year, we were playing
league games six hours away, and I think that turns
a lot of people away Hawkins said. "Guys up there
skate at least four or five times a week, but here
they don't have that
Boston native Sean Sullivan, a youth hockey
coach in Raleigh for eight years, said most of the
kids he coaches are transplants from the North or
Canada whose families relocated here because of
the booming job market. Their experience is rub-
bing off on local youths, he said.
Most youth hockey coaches in the South are
Northern transplants, too.
"They're all very talented coaches, and they're
able to bring their knowledge and experience down
South with them, which is key Sullivan said.

Trustees approve extension for Hamrick
GREENVILLE, N.CThe ECU
Board of Trustees Friday ex-
tended the contract of Director
of Athletics Mike Hamrick until
the year 2004.
Hamrick's annual salary also
was increased from $130,000 to
$164,300. The Board also ap-
proved Hamrick's recommenda-
tion that the contract of head
women's basketball coach Dee
Gibson be extended until the
year 2003. Gibson's salary was
increased from $80,000 to
$87,500.
Under Hamrick's leadership,
the Pirates' athletic program has
reached new heights. Since be-
ing named athletics director in
April of 1995, Hamrick orches-
trated the Pirates' football entry
into Conference USA in 1996
and played a large role in ECU
gaining all-sports membership
into C-USA last October.
The overall ECU
athletics program has
achieved new-found
success.
Also, he has overseen $38 mil-
lion in athletics facilities improve-
ments, including the ongoing
construction of the Strength and
Conditioning Center. Hamrick
has also recently initiated plans
to build a new baseball stadium.
The overall ECU athletics pro-
gram has achieved new-found
success. The Pirate baseball pro-
gram under head coach Keith
LeClair has been a No. 1 seed in
the NCAA Regionals the past two
years. The ECU softball team
earned 60 victories last spring,
becoming only the 14th team in
NCAA history to do that. This
past year, ECU Athletics experi-
enced unprecedented success in
all sports with three Colonial
Athletic Association team cham-
pionships.
As ECU's success has grown, so
has its exposure. Hamrick has
negotiated exclusive television
agreements with FOX Sports Net
South and WITN-TV. Combined
with the Pirates' deal with ESPN
and the Conference-USA package
through FOX Sports Net, the pro-
gram is receiving exposure never
before realized. Last fail, all 12
ECU football games were tele-
vised.
Gibson, who became East
Carolina's women's basketball
coach in 1998, has guided the
Lady Pirates to back-to-back win-
ning seasons, the first time since
the 1992 and 1993 seasons ECU
has accomplished that feat.

The East Carolinian If

SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP)-
Steve Beuerlein opened his 14th
NFL season with a mix of emo-
tions.
The veteran quarterback was
thrilled to finally begin a year as
the incumbent starter. But, at 35,
he was disheartened to learn he's
the oldest player on Carolina's
roster.
"I got a little depressed when I
heard that Beuerlein said
Wednesday. "1 never thought I'd
be the oldest guy. 1 can still re-
member being a rookie.
"But I look at it from the posi-
tion that if you're the oldest it
means you've been doing some-
thing right and must have fought
through a lot to get to this
point
That's never been more true
than now for Beuerlein, who
threw for 36 touchdowns last
year and an NFL-best 4,436 yards.
But he had little time to cel-
ebrate the best season of his ca-
reer.
Days after playing in his first
Pro Bowl, Beuerlein had the first
of five offseason operations. He
had a hernia operation. That was
followed by arthroscopic surgery
on his left knee to repair torn
cartilage, then on his left ankle
to remove bone chips.
Next up was surgery on his
right throwing shoulder, which
had been bothering him for al-
most four years. Doctors discov-
ered a bone spur in the joint and
shaved it down.
(f that wasn't enough, doctors
discovered in May that he
needed a second hernia-related
operation because a torn abduc-
tor tendon was not healing.
The operations forced the
quarterback to the sidelines dur-
ing both of the Panthers'
minicamps, allowed only to do
some light throwing. But
Beuerlein reported to camp with
the rookies to get a jump on his
conditioning and said he'll be
ready to go Thursday when the
rest of the veterans take to the
field for the first time.
"It feels good to be going into
a season without any lingering or
nagging problems he said. "I
think I'm doing better than a lot
of people thought I would be at
this point and just anxious to
throw some passes again
Beuerlein has so far been lim-
ited in what the Panthers will let
him do on the field.
At one point, coach George
Seifert feared he wouldn't get any
work out of Beuerlein until mid-
way through training camp. But
now that he's so far ahead of
schedule, Seifert Isn't taking any
chances with his quarterback and
has been holding him back.
"To have him getting this
much work in, we now expect to
have him ready for our first (ex-
hibition) game and don't want
to jeopardize that Seifert said.
Beuerlein said he has work to
do before he'll be in the same
shape he was last season. He's
noticed a loss of arm strength
and is not yet in what he called
"football condition
And the rookies keep Beuerlein
on his toes, constantly asking
him for advice.
"I'm the guy a lot of people
come to he said. "It seems the
older you get the more people
want to pick your brain. 1 guess
I'm just the fatherly type

Petty to take over Adam's car
CONCORD, N.C. (AP)-Kyle Petty will be walking in the
footsteps of his son next season. Petty Enterprises will con-
tinue its plan to field three Winston Cup cars next season,
with Kyle Petty assuming the role his son, Adam, was expected
to have.
Petty on Tuesday said he will permanently drive the car
Adam raced in until he was killed in a May practice crash.
The No. 45 car will finish the year on the Busch Grand Na-
tional series, then move to Winston Cup in 2001.
"I felt like it was important to get into the 45 and continue
something we had worked hard to begin and Adam had be-
gun Petty said. "And I have to admit I get more enjoyment
driving the 45 car than running Winston Cup
The decision means Petty will give up his own Winston
Cup car and lose his longtime sponsor Hot Wheels. It also
signifies a major restructuring at Petty Enterprises. Petty, 40,
has been driving Adam's Busch car since the 19-year-old was
killed at New Hampshire International Speedway.
"I couldn't see putting someone whose last name wasn't
Petty back into the car Petty said. "It's a healing process.
Emotionally for me it's been a pretty big boost being in that
car.
"We didn't change one thing on that ear-not the seats, not
the steering wheel. When I sit in the car, I'm sitting in the
same seat (Adam) sat in, holding the same wheel, and I feel
close to him
Petty will only drive his No. 44 Winston Cup car until Sep-
tember, then focus solely on the rest of the Busch season.
Steve Grissom, who drives on the Craftsman Truck series for
Petty Enterprises, will take over Petty's Winston Cup car start-
ing Sept. 3 in Darlington, S.C.
