The relocation of an ECU historical building was
carried out in early August in accordance with campus
expansion plans.
Student Center on 9th Street, to East 6th Street.
Original plans included the demolition of the house.
After careful consideration the University realized the
significance of the building and declared it to be of
historical value.
The building, which dates back to 1915, was a
valuable piece of property in Greenville when it was
built. Unlike other houses, it was constructed with
central heat and air conditioning and consists of
3600 square feet. It was purchased by Francis and
Sarah Speight in 1970, two artists that used their
home for painting, instruction of painting and as
their studio.

Marine biology trip
planned for next year
Melyssa Ojeda
EDITOR IN CHIEF
This summer, ECU's department of biology orga-
nized a study abroad course in Belize City, Belize for
16 students to gain practical experience in the field of
marine ecology.
Dr. Joseph Luczkovich, a visiting associate profes-
sor of the biology department, organized the BIOL
4500: Marine Field Ecology course conducted during
the second summer session. Students from a variety
of majors traveled to Belize City over the course of
24 days.
Bo Dame, a graduate student in coastal resource
management and the teachers assistant (TA) on the
trip, said the course trip was worth the cost-approx-
imately $2,081-which included tuition, airfare to
Belize, and all lab, residence hall and meal fees.
"If you compare this to other universities' pro-
grams throughout the country, it's a bargain Dame
said.
During part of the trip, students were housed in a
residence hall on the campus of University College of
Belize, where the 16 students shared two toilets and
learned a lot about teamwork and sharing.
"We were a huge family said senior David Merrill,
president of the Environmental Conservation Organi-
zation of ECU. "It was like living in a dorm; there were
no secrets, and everyone knew everyone else by the
end of the trip
On the first week of the trip, students spent time
in Belize City. Days consisted of 9 a.m S p.m. lectures
which introduced students to habitats they would be
studying later in the course. One weekend, the stu-
dents ventured to Caye Caulker, an island near Belize
City wtrerr snnJerits got ffrftaitfty fnelr ft�� �worK
during the day and enjoy festivities at night
"The students snorkeled and kayaked. inere was
also a Lobster Festival during that time, which was
a good opportunity for us to interact with the culture
and party Dame said. "It was kind of a carnival
atmosphere on that island
Next up was a 10-day stay in Calabas Caye, where
the University College of Belize's marine field station
was located.
During the trip, students acquired four hours of
credit by learning about different marine species, coral
reefs, seagrasses and mangroves, along with the ecol-
ogy of the three systems that occur in tropical areas.
Each student was able to pick his or her own
field project in consultation with the professor and
the TA. Students collected data, made an analysis and
completed a 10-minute presentation in front of the
other students.
Each student could then acquire two more hours
by completing a paper based on a research project
when they returned to the States.
A cooperative agreement is now set up between the
ECU biology department and the University College
of Belize whereby ECU sends a class to UCB's facilities
and in return, a grad student can be sent to ECU to
work on master's requirements.
"In the future, it's hoped UCB will send more
students up here to study at ECU, and then we can
send students down there as an exchange Dame
said.
When asked to describe what he learned the most
from the BIOL 4500 course trip, Merrill said he and
his classmates gained experience both in and out of
the field.
"In the beginning, no one knew each other Mer-
rill said. "By the time we got to Belize, it was like we'd
known each other all our lives. Everyone benefited
through not just the practical work, but also through
learning about each other and and working together
as a team

From SPEIGHT pg.1
Francis Speight is one of the state's most recognized painters, and the
first Artist in Residence at the University from 1965-1972. He remained
in Greenville until his death in 1989. His wife, Sarah Blakeslee Speight,
continued to reside at their home until 1998 when she was taken ill and
moved to Pennsylvania to live with her daughter.
A few years before moving, the University purchased her house
and the one next to it, for future building plans. The purchase of her
house was under a life-estate and the property belonged to Mrs. Speight
until her death. Before leaving Greenville, however, Speight sold her
life-estate to the university.
In order to preserve the house, the University hired professional
mover, J.W. Tyson and Sons Structural Movers from Statonsburg, N.C. to
help transport the building. The crew removed the front porch and back
section, a portion which included the kitchen and an extra room. The
house was then moved in separate pieces to Fast 6th Street. The process
took approximately three weeks to complete.
The now empty lot on 9th Street will be graveled, creating a temporary
parking lot for approximately 25 resident students. ECU has future plans
to convert the lot into a thruway connecting to 9th Street, thus creating
a new entrance to campus.

WINONA, Minn. (U-WIRE)-A former St. Mary's University student
has pleaded guilty to running a sports bookmaking operation out of
his dorm room.
Stephan Morris, 25, of Dorchester, Mass pleaded guilty in Winona
County District Court on Monday to a felony count of sports bookmaking
and a gross misdemeanor count of receiving and taking bets.
Winona County Court Judge Lawrence Collins fined Morris $1,980 and
sentenced him to 40 hours of community service and five years of probation.
If Morris does not violate the terms of his probation, both offenses will be
downgraded to misdemeanors on his record.
Morris' attorney, Peter Wold of Minneapolis, said Morris has graduated
from college and his career would be hindered by a felony conviction.
He characterized his client as "a young man who had made a big
mistake
Morris was arrested March 31, 1998, after local and state authorities
searched his St. Mary's dorm room and found betting slips and other
records. They also found more than $1,000 cash.
Authorities said Morris and a friend operated the bookmaking operation
out of his dorm room from September 1997 until their arrests. Co-defendant
Brian Carli, 25, of Sterling Heights, Mich is awaiting sentencing.
The investigation began after a U.S. postal inspector and campus mail
room employees noticed that Morris regularly sent stacks of cash throughout
the United States in Express Mail envelopes. Authorities also learned that he
received as many as four Federal Express packages a day.
ACROSS OTHER CAMPUSES
V. of Vermont (U-WIRE)-Less than two weeks after strengthening
its policy against hazing on campus, the University of Vermont reached
an $80,000 out-of-court settlement with a former hockey player whose
story helped trigger the new policy.
Goaltender Corey LaTulippe joined the Catamounts last year as a
freshman but left the team after an October incident in which he claims
all first-year players were forced to walk naked holding each other's
genitals, drink excessive amounts of warm alcohol and eat seafood pie
until they vomited.
LaTulippe's lawyer subsequently slapped the University with a federal
lawsuit. University administrators and some of LaTulippe's teammates
were also named. s
After an internal investigation in January found several athletes
untruthfully denying the events of the hazing, university President
Judith A. Ramaley canceled the remainder of the Catamounts' 1999-2000
season. Additionally, authorities charged two players with providing
alcohol to minors.
Last week, the board of trustees approved a new anti-hazing policy,
which, in line with a state measure passed earlier this year, prohibits
any act intended to "humiliate, demean or endanger the mental or
physical health of a student regardless of the person's willingness to
participate in the act.
In addition, the University plans to continue a preventive education
program that began in June, and have approved funds for a life Skills
program for student athletes.
A Life Skills coordinator will arrive Friday to further establish and
eventually teach the program, which promotes team-building experiences
and cooperation.
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (U-W1RF)-Jessica Meeker is an incoming freshman
at Penn State University. She's enrolled at Penn State's College of Science
and plans to study pre-med.
Nothing unusual about thar-except thai Meeker is only 12.
Meeker, who knew how to spell at age 18 months and tested off the
charts when she was in first grade, is believed to be the youngest student
ever to enroll on campus.
Yet for all her intelligence, her mother likes to point out that Jessica is a
typical preteen is many ways. This college student wears a Winnie the Pooh
wristwatch, watches "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and paints her fingernails
green. She likes macaroni and cheese and brownies and won the Halloween
costume contest at the local Wal-Mart three years running.
Jessica's parents, who moved to Bellefonte to be near Penn State, knew
early on that she was special. When she was 18 months old and her parents
were discussing a gift to get her, they spelled it out: "p-l-a-y-h-o-u-s-e
"A playhouse?" the toddler asked.
"She'd do fluke things, and we'd say, 'No, that didn't just happen
said Jessica's mother, Leigh.
In first grade, Jessica tested in the 99.9th percentile for her age. Her
parents decided to educate her at home after officials at the Harrisburg School
District said she should stay in an "age-appropriate" setting.
While entering college at such a young age is unusual, it is not unique. It
does pose some potential problems, according to experts.
Jessica scored 540 on the verbal portion and 520 on the math portion
of the SAT better than average in Pennsylvania but lower than typical
scores for Penn State students. Michael i'yryt, director of the University
of Calgary's Centre for Gifted Education in Alberta, Canada, thinks
young students should score about 700 on each part of the SAT before
entering college.

WINSTON-SALEM (AP)-A man died Saturday after
being doused with pepper spray by a hospital security
officer off hospital grounds, authorities said.
Willie Eugene Simmons, 57, died after a scuffle
with security officers from Wake Forest University
Baptist Medical Center who had followed him from
the grounds to a hotel early Saturday morning, said
Karen Richardson, a hospital spokeswoman.
Police did not release the names of the four
security officers who followed Simmons to the
Comfort Inn. The State Bureau of Investigation is
investigating.
Simmons was sprayed with pepper spray after
he assaulted two of the security officers, authorities
said. Simmons did not have a gun or a knife, said
Winston-Salem police Lt. Fred Jones.
Simmons' estranged wife works at the hospital
and had sworn out a court order mandating that
Simmons not come on the hospital grounds. She
was not working Saturday, but Simmons did not
know that, said Benjamin Simmons, the victim's
brother.
Willie Simmons had a bad heart, Benjamin
Simmons said, and he had recently had a heart attack
and heart surgery. An autopsy is being performed.
Willie Simmons and his wife separated last Monday
after several years of marriage, Benjamin Simmons
said.
Benjamin Simmons said the officers should have
let his brother go once he left hospital property.
"If he got away, they should have let him go on
about his business. That makes me mad Benjamin
Simmons said.
Richardson defended the security officers.
"The officers followed proper procedure but they
had to defend themselves at some point and use pepper
spray she said.
Security officers followed Simmons because other
medical center offices are near the Comfort Inn,
Richardson said. Officers also wanted to tell police where
Simmons was going. The security officers were not trying
to capture Simmons, but had to defend themselves,
hospital officials said.
Security officers, police and emergency workers
tried to revive Willie Simmons with cardiopulmonary
resuscitation. Simmons was taken to Baptist Hospital,
where he died.
The security officers called Winston-Salem police
and reported what was going on, Richardson said.
They followed Simmons so that they could tell police
where he went.
Simmons ran into the Comfort Inn, Richardson said.
One of the security officers followed him inside to warn
employees about Simmons.
Simmons apparently ran through a back door of
the motel, Richardson said. A security guard from the
hotel had joined the medical center's security officers
and was nearby when Simmons was pepper-sprayed,
she said.
Police arrived about the same time that Willie
Simmons and the security officers scuffled, said Jerold
Smith, the hospital's director of risk and insurance
management.
RICHMOND, Va. (TMS)-As college classes begin this week across
the state, Virginia's Commissioner of Health is encouraging freshmen
moving Into campus dormitories to consider a meningococcal meningitis
vaccine.
Ten students seven freshmen attending colleges In Virginia contracted
the bacterial infection last spring, but no students died. None of the cases
occurred at schools in the Hampton Roads area.
Four people died from meningococcal disease in Virginia in 1999,
none were students.
In a release this week by the Virginia Department of Health, Dr. E.
Anne Peterson, the state's health commissioner, said college freshmen are
more likely to contract the disease than other college students.
The disease can cause inflammation of the lining around the brain
and bloodstream infections. The bacteria are spread by direct personal
contact with infected individuals, such as kissing or sharing a glass
or cigarette.
"Freshmen are usually being exposed for the first time to living
in close proximity to other students and engaging in behavioral and
social aspects of college life Peterson said. "Other undergraduates
are at no higher risk of contracting meningococcal disease than the
general public
Last year, an advisory committee of the Centers for Disease Control
recommended that colleges educate incoming students about meningitis
and make the vaccination easily available. Between December 1999 and
April 2000, state health officials reported three meningococcal cases at
the University of Richmond, three cases at Radford University, and one
each at James Madison University, George Mason University, Virginia
lech and Virginia Intermont College in Bristol.
"Every year we hear about sporadic cases said Diane Woolard,
director of surveillance and investigation at the Virginia Department
of Health. "It was very unusual to have two outbreaks on two different

Wrestlers call presidential
candidates to the mat
WASHINGTON (TMS) -If viewers are lucky they Just might get to
watch presidential candidates George W. Bush and Al Gore arm-wrestle
on national television this fall. That is if the candidates answer the World
Wrestling Federation's "Smackdown Challenge" that WWF stars Mick
Foley, Chyna, l.ita and Kurt Angle announced Tuesday. The candidates
would be given five minutes during a live WWF broadcast to present
their views on issues important to youth ages 18 to 34.
"This is a serious invitation WWF star Mick Foley said at a press
conference. "We hope they take it seriously
Even though people may have different opinions about the WWF, it
is hard to argue that a lot of people watch it, said Ali Fischer, president
of the United States Student Association.
"We've issued this call more than enough times Fischer said. "I hope
the candidates will go to a lot of different forums for youth
WWF also joins more than 60 youth organizations including Youth
Vote 2000 in asking the candidates to dedicate one of three official
debates sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates to
youth issues.
"Politicians need to do their part and stop Ignoring youth said Julia
Cohen, executive director of Youth Vote 2000. "There is a cycle of mutual
neglect between the youth and politicians that must be broken
The hope is that youth will moderate and attend the debate, Cohen
said.
The dedication of one-third of presidential debating time to youth
issues is not a waste, says Russ Freyman of Neglection 2000, a year long
study on the mutual neglect between young people and candidates.
"They have to be concerned and receptive because this will be a close
election he said. "The youth vote could swing the election
Freyman has the numbers to prove interest in a youth debate. A
Neglection 2000 poll cites 77 percent of registered voters support making
youth issues the focus of a presidential debate.
"The macro level issues are the same Cohen said. "But it's not about
K through 12, it's about higher education. It's 'will I graduate and have
a job with health insurance?
The WWF has been visible throughout the 2000 presidential campaign
with appearances at both conventions.

By raising academic stan-
dards and proposing a huge
enrollment increase the uni-
versity has gone to great
lengths to show the rest of the
country that there is more to
ECU than penny draft night
downtown It is unquestion-
able that these girls have the
freedom to decide what they
want to do
OUR VIEW
Recently "Playboy" magazine published its Conference USA issue,
which some of our own ECU students were included in. Although we
at the "TEC" congratulate these girls on their decision to pose nude,
we have to wonder whether or not the school should have a say in
circumstances such as these where the publicity attracted to the school
may or may not be desirable.
In this day and age the decision to pose nude for a major publication
should ultimately be left up to the person who will be featured in the
photos. But what if the person is the so-called representative of a larger
group? As with any other ECU student that becomes famous, the students
in these photos will no doubt draw attention to our school. Do we as ECU
students need to retain permission from the university before embarking
on something that could make the university look bad, such as posing
nude as a representative of ECU?
In order to quell the myth of being a "party school ECU has worked
very hard over the last few years. By raising academic standards and
proposing a huge enrollment increase the university has gone to great
lengths to show the rest of the country that there is more to ECU than
penny draft night downtown. It is unquestionable that these girls have
the freedom to decide what they want to do. No one has the right to
infringe on their rights, but at the same time, is it OK for the whole school
to be represented this way?
As students, we act as representatives of this university whenever we
do something that puts focus on the school. This holds true for causing
a fight downtown, swinging on goal posts at away football games, and
even posing nude for "Playboy" magazine. The girls' decision to pose
is for them alone to make. We cannot choose for them. However, does
their accomplishment reflect badly on our school or is what students do
their business only? Should the university have a say in what students
do when they represent ECU?

Countdown to Campaign 2000
Issue: Campaign Finance Reform

Charles Sigmon
ECU REPUBLICANS
Democratic
View
Faisal I.odhi
Recently, campaign finance reform has been a
very hot topic not only in thenews but also in the
political arena. Campaign financing is usually based
on the donations made by businesses and private
citizens to a particular candidate's campaign fund.
Campaign funding effects the general public more
than you might think and it hurts the nation as a
whole by putting our elected officials up for sale
to the highest bidder.The obvious question is what
is the motive of this business or individual to dish
out large amounts of cash-what do they expect to
get in return? The bottom line of in this country is
to make money. Why would they contribute large
quantities of this much-desired cash to somebody
else's cause or benefit? The answer is they wouldn't,
unless of course they expected something more in
return. This means that there is a market out there
full of our elected leaders ready to be bought for
the highest price they can find.Foreign companies,
individuals and countries should not be allowed to make
any contributions to our elected officials, especially
those holding a high office. These contributions should
not be allowed to change our foreign policy in any way
Al Gore has had his share of problems with campaign
finance. Whatever the case was, he has now pledged to
reform the issue of campaign finance and end all of the
controversial fund raising.
There is also a lot of talk about the Feingold Bill,
which would end soft money abuse. It would be great
if this bill is passed. It would tie up a big loophole in
the campaign finance reform laws.lt is apparent that
campaign finance reform is badly needed in the United
States and until it is reviewed, the citizens of the country
continue to pay the price. Campaign finance reform
wouldn't hurt the candidates. It would limit how much
each of them could raise. It would just make sure our
interests are being taken care.

Money, the root of all evil. As some may say,
it is what runs our country, makes our decisions
and provides us with the American dream. It is the
determining factor of life and elections.
Many would say that the person with the most
money wins the race; however, after Watergate and
of course Al Gore's illegal solicitation of campaign
funds in 1996, America wants the ideas of money
and political influence separated.
Don't get the wrong idea, it takes money to
run a campaign. In 1996 the election cost nearly
$2.7 billion according to "The Washington Post
legislation was enacted after the Watergate incident
to control campaign financing by placing individual
contribution limits and forcing candidates to disclose
information on all of those contributions. The
problem really heated up when the famous loophole
was discovered in the legislation. Do we have a piece
of legislation without a loophole?
It was found that by placing unlimited contribu-
tions into soft money accounts, which would be
used for party-building activities such as "get-
out-the-vote" efforts, donors could give whatever
amount they chose. However, this money was being
used for more than just party-building activities.
This new loophole weakened the Federal Election
Commission (FEC), which was formed under the
Federal Elections Campaign Act of 1971.
The Gore plan wants to restrengthen the FEC.
I would let them know to keep their eye on you
Issue: Campaign Finance Reform
too Al. Nevermind that in 1996 Al Gore spoke with
46 people on federal property asking for contributions
up to $100,000. Nevermind that in that same year the
Vice President raised $60,000 in a Buddhist temple
according to Onyjplitics.com. Yet A Gote wants to put
a ban on soft money.
Like George W. Bush, Republicans want soft money
contributions from labor unions and corporations
banned, since shareholders have no say as to where
their money is being spent. Imagine my disappointment
when 1 find out that money I've invested has been used
to fund the Gore campaign.
Bush also wants individual contribution limits raised
because the conservatives view these contributions as
the exercise of free speech. When the Democrats ban
soft money from individuals, funding a campaign will be
much more difficult. With less money, the budget may
leave out important factors which aid in a successful
election.
George W. Bush has the right idea by banning soft
money from only corporations and labor unions. This
way the money lost from restricting the corporations is
earned through accepting more from individuals. Let's
not forget that it takes money to raise even more.
Where Republicans and Democrats see eye to eye
on this issue is the idea of disclosing information on
all contributions made. This is a trustworthy measure
which will let America know where the money comes
from and how it is being spent. The goal is to spend
it wisely and legally. George W. Bush is interested in
doing both.
MicUdVaeih MM MY OPINION
Bond referendum passage a necessity for university
On Nov. 7, 2tXX, the voters of North Carolina
will make a decision that will have an enormous
impact on the state's facilities of higher education.
This decision is known as the UniversityCommunity
College Bond Referendum. Should the voters pass
this referendum, the 16 public universities and the
59 community colleges of North Carolina will be
issued a $3.1 billion bond to construct new buildings
and to modernize existing facilities.
It is imperative that the voters of North Carolina
enact this referendum. The bond referendum will
help ensure that our educational and residential
buildings and those of the other institutions in this
state can accommodate the rapid influx of students
projected to enroll over the next 10 years.
ECU stands at a critical point in its develop-
ment. Our school has established a reputation
as a prominent academic university. However,
resources are limited, ami we have several glaring
shortcomings that need to be addressed.
Our future growth in registration will depend on
our ability to meet the projected rise in enrollment.
Despite the recent renovation of on-campus housing,
F.CU is not prepared to house an incoming freshman
class larger than this year's crop. Current campus
residents are aware of immediate needs for repairs,
ranging from fire safety equipment to elevators, and
ECU is in no position to even consider answering the
gripe of many students: lack of air conditioning.
Our classroom buildings are also in need of
upkeep and renovation. Classes have been discon-
tinued due to inadequate facilities. We have a lack
of space to conduct research supported by grants.
The entire compilation of 10-year capital needs of Fast
Carolina as identified in the Capital EquityAdequacy
Study (December 1999) totals $842 million.
According to the Projections of Educational
Statistics to 2010 (1998), between 1999 and 2010,
North Carolina will have the fourth highest rise in
high school graduates in the nation. Many of the
graduates will wish to pursue their education after high
school and will attempt to gain admittance to one of
North Carolina's public universities or community
colleges. Within the next ten years enrollment in
our universities and community colleges is expected
to grow by about 1(X),000 (about half to community
colleges, half to universities). If our schools are not
prepared for this rise in enrollment, we could very
easily short-circuit our state's rapid economic growth.
The better educated and skilled the work force, the
more attractive North Carolina looks to the prospec-
tive business interested in putting down roots. If
this referendum does not pass, access to university
or community college education will be restricted
significantly.
If voters approve the bond, our state schools will
continue the progress made over the last several
decades.
The ECU community can find out more informa-
tion on this issue by contacting the North Carolinians
for Educational Opportunity at (919) 754-1156 or on
the Web at www.ncfeo.net. The success of this issue
is vital to the future of higher education in the state
of North Carolina.
ejuuu IN MY OPINION
"Playboy" pictorial is not a thing to fear
Why are people so afraid of their own bodies?
This whole "Playboy" pictorial thing has really
brought out the fear that lay deep within the hearts
of the judgmental.
Posing nude is wrong, they say, because it's
immoral. Looking at the human body in it natural
form and feeling an appreciation for its beauty is
a crime against common decency. Where have I
heard that before?
Remember the days when women's ankles were
considered sensual because men weren't allowed to
see them? Of course you don't, because none of us
were there. We grew up in a society where ankles
are just another body part. We find the whole idea
of a girl being immoral because she exposes her
ankles rather silly. So why are we still stuck on the
breasts? We've all seen them before.
If the powers that be decided breasts were as
friendly as ankles, they wouldn't be so in demand.
If certain parts of the human body are wrong to
expose, maybe all of them are. We might as well
go back to hiding our ankles. Women were born
covered, so they should stay covered, right?
These girls enjoyed every minute of their photo
shoot. Since then, they've had people coming up to
them, wanting to meet them, admiring the published
beauty they are fortunate enough to posses. Perhaps,
then, it's really jealousy that fires up the angry women
who tisk at nude models. Perhaps these women tear the
models down because they envy them their new fame
and admiration. Or perhaps they envy the courage it
took to go against convention and show off their bodies.
And maybe the men who find nudity so appalling are
just upset that a woman would show off something that
rightfully belongs to them.
Then again, maybe not. Maybe I'm just being
judgmental. Maybe they think it's wrong because
someone once told them it was. Either way, the bottom
line is the same. If you don't like the pictures, you don't
have to look at them.

"Minorities Are Encouraged To.Apply"
Cheerleaders suspended for explicit tanks
PLAINWELL, Mich. (AP)-Seven members of a state champion cheerleading team were sent home from
school because they insisted on wearing tank tops emblazoned with their team's slogan, "Can't Touch
This across their chests.
The Plainwell High School cheerleaders were also informed Thursday that they wouldn't be allowed
to perform at the following evening's football game. The cheerleading squad won the state Class C
championship last school year.
Principal Linda Iciek said the entire cheerleading team wore the shirts to school Thursday. Administrators
deemed the shirts to be in violation of the school's dress code, which prohibits students from dressing in
clothes bearing sexually suggestive messages.
Iciek said she called the team's approximately 15 members to her office and gave them several options. She
told the girls that they could cover the offending shirts with another shirt or jacket, wear the shirts inside out or
turn them around so the slogan would run across their backs, short-circuiting its suggestive meaning.
"Then there would have been no problem Iciek told the Kalamazoo Gazette for a story Friday.
Several girls turned their shirts around. But the seven who refused were sent home, suspended from school
for the day and prohibited from cheering in the game.
Team captain Sara Snow, 17, one of the disciplined students, dismissed the notion that "Can't Touch
This" was intended to be sexually suggestive. She said it's a statement of pride about the cheerleaders'
state title.
"1 was like, "What? How is this sexually offensive?' and she (Iciek) said, Because the words are across
your breasts Snow said.
The teen-ager said she and the other cheerleaders probably won't wear the shirts again to the school,
which is about 10 miles north of Kalamazoo.
"I think it's ridiculous she said. "Even if you took it as having a sexual meaning, it supports
abstinence
College costs $601 million
LANSING, Mich. (AP)-Michigan taxpayers have to come up with $601 million a year to teach college
students what they didn't learn in kindergarten through 12th grade, according to a private study.
The study by the Mackinac Center for Public Policy suggests making high schools liable for the cos! of
remedial education, the Lansing State Journal reported Saturday.
The study by the conservative think tank also recommends that high school students earn their diplomas
by passing an exam; expanding alternative public schools; and approving vouchers, which would give parents
public money for private school tuition.
"There has been a lowering of standards said Matthew Brouillette, director of education policy for the
Midland-based Mackinac Center. "Students are being passed whether they learn basic skills or not
Critics questioned both the extent of the public schools' shortcomings, and the cost of remedial education.
in the study set for release Tuesday.
"We need a whole lot more than a snapshot to draw firm conclusions about the extent or even Ihe existence
of a problem in the remedial needs of high school graduates said Margaret Trimer-Hartley, a spokeswoman for
the Michigan Education Association, a public school teachers' union with nearly 92,XX) members.
The Mackinac Center arrived at its $601 million estimate by averaging five different scenarios of remedial
education costs. The scenarios included direct costs to universities, community colleges and businesses, and
the cost to society of those who do not receive remedial education.
"It's a ballpark figure conceded the study's author, Jay Greene, a research associate at the Harvard
Program on Education Policy. "The primary purpose is to begin a discussion about how big the problem
is and how to fix It
A 1998 study by the University of Virginia's David llreneman pegged the cost of remedial education at
about l biVHon-for the entire Untted States.
"It looks like (the Mackinac Center) is trying to get the number as big as it can said llreneman, an
economist and dean of the Curry School of Education at Virginia. "I interpret it to help carry out some kind
of reform agenda that involves attacking the (public) schools
The Mackinac Center does support school choice reform, Brouillette said. But he denied political motivation
was a factor in the study, which is being released two months before Michigan voters decide whether to
legalize vouchers in under performing public school districts.
"This has nothing to do with any political agenda he said. "Except to quantify what everyone realizes
already: Too many high school graduates are leaving without the skills necessary to succeed in college
or the employment world
At Michigan State University, the percentage of students enrolled in remedial math and writing courses has
dropped from 29 percent in 1995 to 19 percent-1,257 students-last year.
Michigan State has adopted tougher admissions standards, but university officials said new students
also are better prepared.
"The numbers are declining Barbara Steidle, assistant provost for undergraduate education, told the State
Journal. "Somebody is doing something right
Michigan State spends about $800,000 per year to offer remedial classes, but that is leveled out with tuition
revenue from students taking those courses, budget director Uavid Byelich said.
To Douglas Noverr, chairman of Michigan State's American Thought and Language department, remedial
education is essential.
"People need every opportunity to succeed said Noverr, whose department offers a remedial writing
course. "Not everyone has the same time clock or comes in at the same level
At Lansing Community College, 73 percent of incoming freshmen needed remedial work in math
in 1998-99, the most recent school year for which statistics were available. That compared with 66
percent in 1996-97.
The percentages of students taking remedial reading and writing classes also increased, prompting
the college to spend $2.2 million on those courses-about $578,000 more than those students generated
in tuition revenue.
But college officials refused to blame public schools for sending them unprepared students.
"We can't just say, 'it's K-12 " said acting Provost Jennifer Wimbish. "We have a mission to support and
help. If we don't do it, who else is going to?"

HOROSCOPE
,
If You're Having a Birthday This Week:
Make good changes to your home or family.
Is it time to get a bigger house? You're full of
great ideas, so fix things up the way you want
them. Your work's cut out for you.
Aries (March 21 -April 19)
Schedule romance for today. Make sure
you look busy 'cause some important people
are watching. You're liable to learn something
that makes the whole world look different.
Taurus (April 20 May 20)
You've been thinking about getting some-
thing for your home. Today the urge
could be overwhelming. Consult your sweet-
heart, especially if you're spending household
money.
Gemini (May 21 June 21)
The pace is quick today. A brilliant antago-
nist forces you to prove you know your stuff.
Forgetting a detail could mar your cheerful
attitude.
Cancer (June 22 July 22)
Watch for surprises in a work setting today.
Keep your wits about you, and everything
should work out fine. Something you try is
liable to fall flat, however. Don't believe every-
thing you hear.
Leo (July 23 Aug. 22)
Your buyer's regret today could be awful.
Instead, make plans and focus on what you'll
do to make them come true. You should be in
a better financial position later this week.
Virgo (Aug. 23 Sept. 22)
You may get conflicting orders today.
Check before you get too far into the project.
Extra work could come in, which could mean
extra money. Get the deal in writing. Some-
body else's sad loss could be your lucky break.
Libra (Sept. 23 Oct. 23)
A domestic complication takes up extra
time, so keep your schedule simple then.
Don't let a thoughtless remark cramp your
style. Make a correction if necessary and keep
on going.
Scorpio (Oct. 24 Nov. 21)
Check out the gossip you hear today before
you pass it along. You don't want to get
into trouble due to somebody else's error. A
knowledgeable tip could help you make a
good deal however.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 Dec. 21)
You're full of surprises today. You'll wow
the competition, but don't make fun of the
boss. Have the facts instead, and you could
Capricorn (Dec. 22 Jan. 19)
Pay attention to your nagging doubts
today. They may be trying to tell you some-
thing. You're more decisive, but don't step on
an important person's toes. Be nice, even if
you feel pressed, and make the sale.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 Feb. 18)
If your sweetheart's too busy to play today,
don't complain. Be flexible, and you'll be
more appreciated. Work hard for the money,
even if it's not much fun.
Pisces (Feb. 19 March 20)
Everybody wants your time and attention
today. Set priorities in order of profitability.
An outing with friends looks too expensive.
If you can wait, you'll put less stress on your
budget.

Through the
Looking
Glass
What's a girl have to
do to get a ride?
A 43-year-old German woman was
having trouble getting picked up as she
hitched a ride on 1-85 from Atlanta to Nor-
folk, Va so she stripped off all her clothes
figuring this would increase her chances.
At least a half-dozen North Carolina motor-
ists, who apparently don't realize that the
human body is a beautiful thing, used their
cell phones to call the police on Hamza
Schwenking-Ben of Nuremberg, Germany
upon seeing her in all her glory. She was
charged with indecent exposure.
Just having a little fun, officer
Perhaps hoping to infuse a little merri-
ment or excitement into a long, boring car
trip with her parents, a 15-year-old New
Jersey girl held up a sign in the back window
saying, "HELP WE'RE BEING KIDNAPPED A
driver who saw the sign wasn't in on the
Joke and-certted-the cops. Pennsylvania police
stopped the car, asked a few pointed ques-
tions, cited the girl for disorderly conduct
and let everybody go.
Exit was a bit too hasty
A judge in Fordyce, Ark felt that Sher-
man Parks had paid his debt to society.
Parks, 50, had served nine months on a
burglary charge, so the judge ordered his
release. When the guards went to let him
out, they discovered he had escaped that
very day. Police soon caught up with him,
and he is now in jail for escaping, which is
a crime.
Oh, there it Is
Curtis Keene, a farmer in Georgia,
reported his cotton picker stolen and col-
lected on a $95,500 insurance policy. Inves-
tigators now say that the 1 7-ton machine
wasn't stolen at all, but that had Keene
buried it in a huge hole. The cotton picker
is the size of two dump trucks-12 feet wide,
12 feet tall and about 20 feet long. Rain
washed away some of the dirt under which
it was buried, and Keene was charged with
insurance fraud.
She's just mad about the boy
Summer Strickland's joy at the birth of
her baby girl was somewhat diminished
when she was arrested for statutory rape
for having sex with her husband. She is 21,
and her now-husband-then-boyfriend was
13 when he impregnated her. They married
five weeks after the baby was born. Under
Georgia law, it is illegal to have relations
with anyone under age 16 who is not
your spouse. But they were allowed to
marry because they are parents. Summer
was shocked. "He's my husband she said.

fTEC INTERVIEW:
a telling conversation with ECU's own "Girls of the Conference USA" about nudity,
fame and the truth about photo shoots
PLAYBOY MODELS
Emily Little
FOUNTAINHEAD EITOR
Nancy Kuck
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
We've finally managed to get these girls alone.
Tliey've been in demand all day, from the radio DIs and
the line of eager men that has been plunking magazines
down for a coveted signature for the past four hours.
Now it's our turn to interview the two girls selected from
ECU to pose for October's Conference USA pictorial, out
this month in Playboy.
Two girls have sat down to interview two girls, all
poised on bar stools upstairs in the cigar bar at Ham's
Restaurant and Brewhousc. The girls work their magic
on the bartender and he turns the musk down to a
faint echo, although the lights stay down and we can
still hear the hum of conversation from the entourage
of Playboy employees and hopeful male admirers that
has followed up here.
These two girls radiate charm. Cara Cousins (19,
sophomore, broadcasting) is the schoolgirl. She's petite,
wears very little make up, and has cute down to an
art form. In fact, her Playboy photo has her wearing
nothing but knee-socks and tennis shoes. She's listed in
the magazine as Brooke Moore, but not because she's
ashamed of her picture, as a recent Greenville newspaper
article insinuated. She just doesn't want her family to
know, although she has told her mom.
Jessica Mauch (20, junior, business, apparel and
textiles), on the other hand, is all glamour. Her hair is
styled, glitter dusted on her chest and face. Her photo
pins her as all sex symbol, and in person she is every
bit the confident model.
As the group on the other side of the bar waits and
watches, Cara and lessica have taken a few minutes to
share their experience with us. As far as we could tell,
they hold nothing back.
TEC: So, what was it like to pose for Playboy?
JESSICA: It was a lot of fun. I wasn't very nervous.
A lot of people ask that, if we were nervous. 1 think
we both pretty much nervous at first, going into
it, but the photographer made us both feel very
comfortable. Nobody touched us, it wasn't creepy
like that. It was very comfortable. Professional.
TEC: Did you tell your parents?
JESSICA: My mom, yeah. My dad's passed away and
I don't have any brothers, so my mom-I told her.
Everybody in my family knows. My grandparents on
both sides, everybody. Anybody that is anybody to
me knows.
TEC: How do they feel about that?
JESSICA: Everybody's been positive about everything.
I think they're shocked. That's the big thing. They're
just shocked, but everybody's been really cool about
it and stuff.
TEC: Cara, your mom, is she ok with it?
CARA: Oh, yeah. She was the first person I called.
So yeah.
TEC: Did you have to get permission from the
University?
CARA: No, not at all.
TEC: All the copies in Greenville are sold out right
now. We had to ask for copies from you because there
are none
CARA: (laughs) 1 didn't even get my own.
TEC: How does it feel knowing that practically every
man on campus and in Greenville has a picture of
you guys naked?
JESSICA: It's kind of a cool feeling. It's not creepy,
it doesn't make me feel uncomfortable. It's kind of
cool, you know?
CARA: Yeah, I agree. I think there's a big difference, I
mean, not a big difference, but standing in front of a
man naked and then being on paper is kind of different
to me. It's like if you're actually there in person, it's
just-it doesn't bother me.
TEC: Have any guys approached you outside of press
functions?
JESSICA: Actually, we were at a party last weekend
and a bunch of people came up, and we were just
hanging out. And people kept coming up and saying,
"We heard you were gonna be one of the girls from
VlayboyV And 1 just played it off. I was like, "No,
that's not me. It's not my picture. No, that's not
me You know? But this week, I've gotten a lot
of e-mails since the issue came out from people
and stuff.
TEC: Why did you decide to do it?
CARA: I did it on a dare. My boyfriend was like, "1
dare you, you will not make it And so I went out
there and I did it. (laughs)
JESSICA: Actually, one of my roommates-the last
day they had auditions, the very last, probably, 30
minutes before the auditions were over-one of my
roommates told me. She was like, "Let's go. Let's
do it. It'll be fun, it'll be exciting And I was like,
"No, I'm not doing it So she talked one of my
other roommates into doing it, and we all three
went together. Just for the fun of it, not looking
for anything to come out of it. Just to go do it and
say we did it.
TEC: How did you react when you heard that you
actually made it?
CARA: 1 was screaming. 1 was jumping up and
down and screaming.
TEC: In a good way?
CARA: (laughs) yeah.
JESSICA: The Playboy rep actually told us at the
audition day I think it was on a Friday and she told
us we would hear from her that night. And none
of us heard from her or anything, so we all went
out the next night because I had friends in town.
She called at eleven o'clock and said, "Please call

Pick of the week: Admiral's Cup Coffeehouse
Brian Frizzelle
ASSISTANT FOUNTAINHEAD EDITOR
You walk in through the front door and all previous
thoughts go temporarily on hold as'the inviting aroma
of fresh coffee beans grabs your attention. You have
just entered the Admiral's Cup Coffeehouse, the newest
coffeehouse in Greenville.
The Admiral's Cup, situated between Food Lion
and Quixote Travel in the Marketplace at Lynndale on
Ked Banks Road, offers a tempting array of different
flavors of coffee, teas, and baked goods. It is a family
business owned and operated by Michel Brett and
her husband Jerry.
"This is a dream come true Brett said. "I have
always loved coffeehouses. I love the atmosphere of
them, but I especially like the uniqueness of each
one
Part of the uniqueness of the Admiral's Cup is
the nautical interior design. Lobster traps, maps, and
signaling flags that decorate the walls make you feel
like you're at the beach.
"We are so close to the beach and rivers that we
tried to decorate the inside like the interior of a river
cabin Brett said.
The kerosene lamps that grace every table add a
touch of hominess. There are also two recliners and a
collection of books and magazines that customers can
look at and even take with them as long as they leave a
replacement for each one they remove.
"It's not as crowded as some of the other cof-
feehouses most of the time customer Ceal Holbert
said. "The coffee's good and the decor is nice. I like that
it's non-smoking. I also like the book swap idea
Non-smoking customers will be pleased at the no
smoking policy, but there are comfortable chairs and
tables outside for those who want to light up. With
fresh coffee beans available by the pound near the door,
smoking can affect the quality of the coffee.
"Coffee beans absorb certain odors such as cigarette
smoke. But here, when you open the coffee doors you
smell coffee and not smoke Brett said.
To curb your hunger the Admiral's Cup offers several
different types of baked goods and pastries including
bagels, cinnamon rolls,cake slices and miniature
cheesecakes. They have a large selection of coffee
beans to purchase, from Classic Breakfast Blend to KTIa
Fudge. You can also choose from 36 different syrups for
flavored lattes and cappuccinos, including Chocolate
Blanco, Cranberry and English Toffee.
"They have a lot of varieties of what you can get
customer Amy Sweeny said. "There's something for
everyone
Customers can also browse through a gift section
that has decorative candle holders, coffee mugs,
decorated picture frames, and wall hangings.

"A smile Is the only curved line that says everything straight
This anonymous quote is one that hostess Betty Barrett lives by each
and everyday.
When walking into the Wright Place each student is greeted with an
ecstatic, welcoming smile from Barrett.
Her main job at the Wright Place is to make students feel at home
and appreciated.
"I want the students to know that when they walk in here, they
are not just a number, but all individually special people to me
Barrett said.
Barrett, a Greenville native, has been working at the Wright Place
since February 16, 2000. She is the first hostess ever to be hired to to work
in one of ECU's dining facilities. Barrett obtained the position through
persistence and her constant up-beat attitude.
"1 want them to leave their troubles at the door and walk out with
a smile said Barrett.
Barrett said she loves people and refuses to do any job that doesn't
make someone smile.
Outside of her job at the Wright Place, Barrett can be found doing odd
jobs at her church and participating in community service projects. She
previously was a volunteer at the Division of Services for the Blind.
Barrett said that home is where she gets her inspiration to be
such a happy person. Barrett spends a majority of her time with her
family. She has four children, 3-year-old twins, a 2-year-old girl and
an 18-year-old daughter.

sportsbriefs pirates smother Blue Devils in opener
Eagles pound Cowboys
The Philadelphia Eagles crushed the
Dallas Cowboys in their season opener
Sunday. Behind running back Duce Stal-
ey's 201 yards, the Eagles cruised to a
41-14 victory.
The Eagles knocked out Dallas quarter-
back Troy Aikman in the second quarter
with a concussion.
Also hurt was the Cowboys' )oey Gal-
loway, who left the game with a sprained
knee.
In addition to Staley's career-high rush-
ing total, he also scored a touchdown.
Bills top Titans
It wasn't the Music City Miracle, but
the Bill did avenge their playoff loss to
the Tennessee Titans Sunday. Steve Chris-
tie nailed a 3 3-yard field goal to clinch the
win with 16 seconds left. The Titans were
unable to return the kickoff following the
field goal, past midfield.
The Bills defense held the Titan offense
to 172 total yards. Titan running back
Eddie George only managed 37 yards
rushing.
Bills quarterback, Rob Johnson, left the
game in the fourth quarter with an injured
nerve and was replaced by Alex Van Pelt,
who drove the Bills to their final score.
Redskins nip Panthers
After an off-season that saw team
owner Daniel Snyder spend over $100 mil-
lion on upgrading the Washington Red-
skins, they managed to beat the Carolina
Panthers by three in their first game. The
Redskins scored 13 unanswered points in
the second half to come from behind to
beat the Panthers 20-17.
The Panther got a 10-7 lead in the first
half after a Michael Bates kickoff return for
a touchdown and a Richie Cunningham
field goal.
After the Redskin defense stiffened and
the offense began to click, the Redskins
opened up a 20-10 lead.
Fresh off of signing a new contract,
Stephen Davis rushed for 133 yards and a
touchdown.
The Panther cut the Redskin lead to
three on a Wesley Walls touchdown recep-
tion in the fourth quarter.
Bobby Labonte wins
at Darlington
Bobby Labonte won the rain-shortened
Southern 500 Sunday. 328 laps into the
race, inclement weather caused the event
to be halted and Labonte to pick up the
victory at Darlington International Race-
way.
The win comes days after Labonte
crashed in practice due to a stuck throttle,
the same problem that caused the crashes
that led to the deaths of Adam Petty and
Kenny Irwin earlier this year.
ECU starts season
with shutout victory
Stephen Schramm
SPORTS EDITOR
Three plays into their season-opening 38-0 vic-
tory, the Pirates made sure that the Duke "Airborne"
offense would not get off of the ground.
Kelly Hardy's 26-yard interception return for
the game's opening score began a 21 point first-half
onslaught and effectively ending the Blue Devils
hopes for their first opening day victory under
Carl Franks.
Behind a defense that didn't allow Duke to
advance beyond the ECU 41, the Pirates dominated
on both sides of the ball. ECU was able to rack
up 428 yards of total offense, while holding Duke
to just 140.
ECU quarterback David Garrard finished the
night 22 of 29 for 264 yards in the air.
"They were playing off so far Garrard said.
"They came up and made a pretty good stick after
the catch, but the initial pass was there. I thought
they played well on defense. I just thought we
came out working a little harder
Most of the passing yards belonged to senior
receiver Keith Stokes, who finished with a career-
high 124 yards.
"This year I've got to come out a little bit more
on offense that I did last year Stokes said. "I've
got to step up and be a leader. So I'm going to
take the role
though the offense found success in the air,
Pirate rushers had a good night as well. Running
back Jamie Wilson finished as the leading rusher
with 60 of the Pirates total 164 yards on the
ground.
While the offense was explosive, it was the

defense that fired the first shots.
Hardy's pick of Duke quarterback, Spencer Romine's
third-down pass 89 seconds into the game, put the
Blue Devils on their heels and set the stage for a
Pirate rout.
"You come in with great plans on both sides of
the ball said ECU Defensive Coordinator Tim Rose.
"When something like that happens, you don't plan
on that. So it does set the tone, definitely

Technically the turf of Wallace-Wade Stadium is
owned by Duke LIniversity. Though for a couple of
hours Saturday night, it was solely the property of the
ECU defense.
Holding the Blue Devils
to 140 yards of total offense,
just 16 more than ECU's
Keith Stokes had by himself,
and keeping the Blue Devils
behind the ECU 41 proved
that despite key departures, the Pirate defense still
has teeth.

Late in Saturday's 38-0 win over Duke, a chant
emanated from the numerous Pirate fans that stuck
around. "We want Tech rung from the Wallace-Wade
stands.
No matter how hard, Head Coach Steve Logan and
the Pirate team try to diffuse the hype heading into
Thursday's game, it's already started.
Before the last fans had filed out, ECU quarterback
David Garrard was already fielding questions about the
inevitable comparison between he and Virginia Tech
quarterback Michael Vick.
"I'm going to have 10 other guys with me, he's

came in the Sugar Bowl to eventual national champion
Florida State. The team bring Heisman Candidate

player in college football.
"It's what everybody's been looking forward to
so hopefully we'll go out and have a good game for

"They're a great team said ECU's Keith Stokes.
"They've got great speed, but I believe we can match-up

with confidence.
"We thought we could come here and win pretty
impressively Garrard said. "I think we did. I'm just

The Thursday game gives Logan and the Pirates
only four days to prepare.
"We're going to start tomorrow really quickly
Logan said, Saturday. "That's why I've got to get out of
here really quickly and get the kids on the bus and get
home. We will practice our kicking game Monday and

Road Game?
At Saturday's game, most of the 30,224fans,
were partisan Pirate fans.
"Fan support was outstanding said Head
Coach Steve Logan. "We knew that the Pirates
would come out and give us support. This was
the first time we've won in this stadium and
that's a big breakthrough for us
Status of the kicking game
While most signs in the preseason pointed to
sophomore Kevin Miller to handle the punting
chores, Head Coach Steve Logan turned to true
freshman Wes Herlocker to kick the ball away
Saturday.
"Kevin with the rain and the weather tonight,
his thigh was a little bit tight and I just went
head and let Wes punt Logan said. "Now that
he's not redshirted he's going to do some more
punting
Two quarterbacks
While junior David Garrardran the offense
with precision, sophomore Richard Alston also
made an impression
Despite finishing the night with 42 rushing
yards and no completions, Alston did lead
the Pirates on two scoring drives, underscoring
Logan's goal of using both quarterbacks.
"I'll tell you what guys, most of the time
they'll tell your that when you've got two quar-
terbacks playing that means you don't have one

on that. We've got two nice young quarterbacks

Youth is served
The fans at Wallace-Wade were introduced to
many new faces Saturday. Freshmen, Art Brown,
Terrance Copper, Herlocker, as well as transfers.
Derrick Collier and Greg LeFever saw significant
playing time.
Brown had two notable plays, a long run and
a touchdown from seven yards out.
"We played 14 kids tonight who have never
played a college football game said Head
Coach Steve Logan. "Art's one of them. There
were a couple of flashes.
"He's got to get better in his pass protection

played well, he said. "Terrance Copper was a tru

a fumble, the Pirate defense forced the Blue Devils to punt with 1:58
remaining in the first quarter. The Pirates started on their own 20 and
promptly drove 80 yards in just over five minutes. The drive ended on a
15-yard Wilson touchdown ran that put the Pirates up 14-0.
"We did pretty good tonight Wilson said. "We came out and put
some points on the board early. We've been harping on going out and
getting a good start. We always win the fourth quarter so it looked
good for us tonight
The Pirate defense held Duke to three plays on their next possession,
forcing the Blue Devils to punt. Ten plays later, Wilson had his second
score of the night on a 3-yard run.
On their first drive of the second half, the Pirates drove to a first-
and-goal on the Duke 9-yard line. After two rushes inside the two,
the Pirates were thwarted by the Duke defense. A Miller field goal put
the Pirates ahead 24-0.
While the Pirates only scored three points in the third quarter, the
defense held Duke to only 14 total yards in the period.
It didn't get any better in the fourth quarter for the Blue Devils.
On their first two possessions on the quarter, they only managed
one yard.
Meanwhile the Pirates moved the ball, scoring twice. The first
touchdown in the quarter came on a pass play from Garrard to Stokes.
The play covered 30 yards.
"They blitzed the two safeties and just filled the hole up Stokes
said. "I got a good block by one of my receivers and followed him and
ran into the end zone
With 5:04 in the quarter, true freshman Art Brown, scored from seven
yards out to put ECU ahead 38-0.
The shutout is ECU's first since beating UT-Chattanooga 31-0 in 1998.
The loss was the second straight shutout for the Blue Devils, who lost
38-0 in their final game last season.
The win was also the Pirates' first at Duke.
"We've never won at Duke before Stokes said. "We played a good
game, and got the first win at Duke in a long time. So we showed the
crowd that it wasn't just a fluke last year. Duke played a good game but
we came out ready to play tonight

pressure, because if we don't there's just a certain amount of time that
someone's going to come out of the back end of your defense. The
pressure was all there. We had a couple of nice plays in the defensive
secondary tonight. It was really a beautiful performance
The secondary was a question mark entering the season. A crop of
young players looked to fill the holes left by the departures of the two
starting cornerbacks from 1999. The group helped make sure the Airborne
offense was stillborn, holding the Blue Devils to 96 yards in the air.
"From where I was standing, we gave up some deep routs in the
middle there Rose said. "But they seemed to do a pretty good job
stopping them deep except for one time. Apart from that I think we held

Braves prepare for title battle
ATLANTA (AP)�Chipper Jones was a mere bystander the last
time the Atlanta Braves went down to the final day of the season
in a pennant race.
Jones was only 21 years old, called up late in the season as the Braves
battled the San Francisco Giants for the NL West title in 1993.
"I wasn't involved Jones said, recalling his minor role in that
gripping day-to-day struggle. "All I ever did was pinch-run for Sid
Bream
Jones did notice the price that was paid by his older teammates,
who faced must-win situations virtually every day over the last month.
There was no wild card in those days, so only the division champs
moved on to the postseason.
The Braves won 104 games, just enough to send the Giants home
with 103 victories. But Atlanta was physically spent and emotionally
drained by the time it got to the NL championship series, losing
to Philadelphia 4-2.
"I know it took a toll when we played the Phillies Jones said.
The Braves have made things a bit easier on themselves since
that dramatic race in '93, which marked their third straight division
title. Since then, Atlanta has added five more championships to
its unprecedented streak, coasting to the finish line by an average
margin of 11.4 games. Reaching the playoffs as division champs has
become a mere formality.
But this year seems likely to break the pattern.
The New York Mets, runners-up to the Braves in the NL East the
last two years, have been the hottest team in baseball since the All-Star

Perez, Quilvio Veras, Rudy Seanez and Greg McMichael�-to year-ending
ailments since opening day.
