City of Greenville initiates zero tolerance area
City ordinance enforced by
Greenville Police Department
Melyssa Ojeda
The City of Greenville has initiated a "zero
tolerance" policy to protect the rights and privileges
of all Greenville residents by increasing the enforce-
ment of city ordinances in response to concerns
from residents near the university.
The policy, sent out to the community through
prepared pamphlets and fliers, provides information
on city requirements and personal safety. "Zero
tolerance" means that the Greenville Police Depart-
ment (GPD) and Code Enforcement Officers will now
frequently patrol areas near the campus and strictly
enforce city ordinances regarding parking, alcohol
consumption, noise, disorderly conduct, pets, litter
and trash, occupancy limits and public nuisances.
All individuals disobeying these ordinances will be
penalized without exception.
"Any time you might have new people come into
the area you have to give them time to adjust Davis
said. "Although we have always done something
to inform residents on zoning, noise and parking
policies and restrictions, this is the first time that
we are coordinated and sent information out before
the semester began
The zero tolerance area is outlined to the north
by the Tar River; to the west by Reade and Charles
streets; to the south by 14th Street to the eastern
boundary of Rock Springs neighborhood, then
north to 10th Street, and east to the intersection
of 10th and 5th streets; and from this intersection
north to the Tar River.
Those regulations that are currently enforced
in Greenville are:
Vehicles parked on "controlled residential streets
are required to display an "A" sticker from the
city. Non-stickered cars may park for two hours
maximum from 8 a.m5 p.m. or receive a ticket.
Ticketed cars will be towed without warning. It
is illegal to park on the sidewalk, wrong side of
the street, vacant lots or in the front yard of a
Minimum fine: $50 citation from the GPD.
This ordinance applies to all areas of the city. Any
sound coming from a single property or automobile
indoors or outdoors is applicable. Violations of the
decibel level will result in a $50 citation, unless
a permit is given.
The city has a leash law prohibiting owners to
let their dogs run free at all times. Pets must be
inoculated and have license tags renewed annually.
The City of Greenville advises all dog owners to keep
their pets on a leash at all times.
Cars illegally parked near the front yard of a residence will be
towed by the city.
Individuals who post fliers on trees and telephone poles are
subject to a $50 fine, (photos by John Stowe)
It is illegal to deposit trash on any sidewalk or on
private property. Handbills and fliers are an organized
form of litter. Minimum fine: $50.
There cannot be more than three unrelated people
living together as a single housekeeping unit, whether
in an apartment, house, duplex, condominium or
mobile home. The following combination of persons
can live together as a household: one individual living
This 21 year old is obeying the zero tolerance policy
regarding the purchasing of alcohol
alone, up to three unrelated individuals; two or more
individuals related by blood, adoption or marriage (i.e
family); one family and up to two unrelated individual!
(i.e. room renting); one family and up to two related
individuals (i.e. room renting).

policy, or to receive a pamphlet outlining details,

to do
Breast Self-Exam
1. Lie down and put a pillow under your right
shoulder. Place your right arm behind your head.
2. Use the finger pads of your three middle
fingers on your left hand to feel for lumps
or thickening in your right breast. Your
finger pads are the top third of each finger.
3. Press firmly enough to know how your
breast feels. If you're not sure how hard to press, ask
your health care provider. Or try to copy the way your health care provider uses the finger pads during
a breast exam. Learn what your breast feels like most of the time. A firm ridge in the lower curve of
each breast is normal.
4. Move around the breast in a set way. You can choose either the circle (A), the up and down (B),
or the wedge (C). Do it the same way every time. It will help you to make sure that you've gone over
the entire breast area, and to remember how your breast feels.
5. Now examine your left breast using right hand
finger pads.
6. Repeat the examination of both breasts while standing, with one arm behind your head. The
upright position makes it easier to check the upper and outer part of the breasts (toward your
armpit). You may want to do the standing part of the BSE
while you are in the shower. Some breast changes can be
felt more easily when your skin is wet and soapy. V
For added safety, you can also check your breasts for
any dimpling of the skin, changes in the nipple, redness,
or swelling while standing in front of a mirror right after
your BSE each month.
If you find any changes, see your doctor right away.

Breast Cancer
� What Is the Incidence of
and mortality from breast
cancer In the United States?
In 2000, it is estimated that
182,800 women will be diagnosed
and 40,800 women will die of
breast cancer. Additionally, 1,400
men will develop breast cancer and
400 will die.
Breast cancer is the most
common cancer among women of
all ages.
� Who Is at risk?
All women are at risk for breast
cancer. The two most significant
risk factors are being female and
getting older.
A woman's chance of getting
breast cancer increases with age.
in the United States, an average
woman's chance of getting breast
cancer is about one in 235 by age
40, one in 25 by age 50 and 1 in
15 by age 80.
About 5-10 percent of women
with breast cancer have a hereditary
form of the disease. These women
have a higher risk of developing
breast cancer before menopause,
and they often have multiple family
members with the disease.
Approximately 80 percent of
the women with breast cancer
are over the age of 50. Half of all
breast cancers in the United States
occur in women 65 years and older.
Although rare, younger women can
also get breast cancer.
� What can I do?
The Susan G. Komen Breast
Cancer Foundation recommends
the following steps:
� Annual screening mammog-
raphy for women beginning by
age 40.
� Clinical breast examination at
least every 3 years beginning at age
20 and annually after 40.
� Monthly breast self-examina-
tion beginning by age 20.
What else should I know?
Until we know more about pre-
venting breast cancer, detection
of breast cancer at an early stage
provides a greater chance of survival
and more treatment options. When
the disease is confined to the breast,
the five-year survival rate is over
95 percent.

Breast from page 2
According to the most recent data, mortality rates continue to decline
in Caucasian women. However, African-American women are more likely
to die from breast cancer than Caucasian women. These differences in
mortality rates have been attributed to differences in access to medical
care and to socioeconomic and cultural factors.
Early detection is the key to a greater chance of survival and more
treatment options.

In accordance with Breast
Cancer Awareness Month, Student
Health Services is spreading aware-
ness of the number one most
common cancer found in men ages
15-35: testicular cancer.
Cancer of the testes, if discov-
ered in the early stages, can be
treated promptly and effectively.
The cancer tends to happen more
often among men who have unde-
scended testes.
Symptoms of testicular cancer
are a small, usually painless hard
lump about the size of a pea and or
an enlargement of the testicle.
The best means for early detec-
tion of testicular cancer is self-
examination of the testicles. Tes-
ticular self-exam is a three-minute
monthly procedure that is com-
pleted after a shower or bath when
the scrotum is most relaxed.
The testicular self-examination
can be done as follows:
� Examine the scrotum visually
for swelling.
� Examine each testicle sepa-
rately by rolling the testicle between
your thumb and the first two fingers
of both hands. It is normal for
one testicle to be larger than the
�Check for lumps, swelling or
a change in the size or consistency
of the testicle.
�Feel the epididymis, a cord-like
structure, on the top and back of
each testicle. Don't interpret this
as an abnormality.
�Make an appointment with a
health care provider if any lumps or
abnormalities are found. Also, have
your health care provider evaluate
aching in the lower abdomen or
groin, or a feeling of heaviness
in the scrotum, which may be a
warning sign of cancer.
(Information from Student Health
Senices "Testicular Cancer")
� Luckily, even if it is testicu-
lar cancer, in most cases it can be
cured. There are often no long
term effects on sexual function
on future ability to father
The cause of testicular
cancer is not well understood.
The most important known risk
factor for testicular cancer is a
history of one of your testicles
not moving into your scrotum
properly before you were of
school age. However, most men
who develop testicular cancer do
not have this risk factor.
� Ignoring any changes in
your testicles or not seeing a
doctor or nurse right away could
make whatever problem you
may have more difficult to treat
So, if one of your testicles
seems much larger or harder to
you than the other one, or if you
find a lump, get it checked out
by a doctor.

Fact: One in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer
in her lifetime.
Fact: Contrary to what you may have heard, breast cancer affects both
men and women.
Fact: Treatments for breast cancer are much more effective when it is
detected early.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Student Health Services
will dispense free information to students on ways to prevent this disease.
Therefore TEC encourages all students, male and female, to take a few
minutes out of their day to learn the importance of increasing awareness
of breast cancer. By learning about risk factors, preventative measures and
self-examination, women and men can help combat this disease.
Even the simplest gesture this month can make a difference. By wearing
a pink ribbon, you are showing your support for people living with breast
cancer, for those who have lost their lives to it, and for the fight for better
awareness and prevention.
Even though certain risk factors cannot be controlled, such as age, sex
and family history, the factors you can control include smoking, alcohol
consumption, poor diet and lack of exercise. By eliminating these factors
from your lifestyle, you may be eliminating your chances for developing
breast cancer.
Also, women between the ages of 20 and 39 should have a clinical breast
exam by a health professional every three years. October seems the best time
to remind students to take advantage of Student Health Services' free exams
offered throughout the year.
There is no way students should pass up the opportunity to educate
themselves about a disease that affects so many men and women every

Issue: The Environment
Scouts should be allowed to discriminate
While searching through the
congressional records not long ago
for a class project, I came upon
something that absolutely made
my stomach turn.
As a former member of the Boy
Scouts of America, I was horrified
to find that a group of Democrats
(specifically Rep. Lynn Woolsey
(D) of California) introduced a Bill
(H.R.4892) into the House that
attempted to repeal the national
charter of the Boy Scouts of America
because of their stance on homo-
sexuality, among other things. The
measure was defeated, but could
you imagine the consequences if
it wasn't ?
Americans are slowly having
their rights taken away, in this case,
specifically your right to choose
who you may associate with. The
Boy Scouts of America have always
preached diversity by being open to
all different races and religions, but
remain closed on three different
First, it is a men's only organiza-
tion, hence the name "Boy Scouts
The organization was founded
based on the interests of men since
there are obvious differences in
the interests between the sexes. A
strictly male organization fulfilled
this role. The Girl Scouts fulfill a
similar role for women.
Second, the Boy Scouts of Amer-
ica believe that regardless of reli-
gion, there is a set group of morals
that are universal. This includes the
belief in goodness, family values
and healthy living. This is why all
scouts have to take an oath to God.
If you don't believe in God, why
on earth would you want to join a
religiously based organization?
Pinally.the Boy Scouts teach
family values. Included in this is the
belief in conservative sexual values
and a sense of family. This is based
on the Bible and other religious
texts. Homosexuality is not a value
that is preached in conservative
moral values, and by being forced
to admit homosexuals into this
private, conservative, religiously
based organization, we take away
the rights of parents to raise their
kids how they choose.
By proposing this legislation,
these elected representatives of our
Congress are saying that it isn't
all right to choose who we should
hang out with or grow up with.
If somebody is offended, then we
should automatically forget all of
our beliefs, ideals and civil rights
and instantly submit to their latest
complaint or whim.
People, if we have to be afraid
that we cannot practice our reli-
gious beliefs or choose our friends,
I recommend that we get out and
vote! I, for one, am not embar-
rassed to be male, a Christian or a
heterosexual. I have no problems
with homosexuals or atheists. I just
feel that if a private organization
wishes to exist for a certain purpose,
they should be allowed to practice
their beliefs without the threat of
constant litigation.
To close out this column, I
pose to you for reflection, the
First Amendment to the Constitu-
tion: "Congress shall make no law
respecting an establishment of
religion, or prohibiting the free
exercise thereof; or abridging the
freedom of speech, or of the press;

One of the strongest issues of
Vice President Al Gore is protect-
ing the environment. Gore has
made our nation's environment
and natural resources one of his top
concerns during his two decades of
public service, being a member in
the House of Representatives, the
Senate and as vice president.
There are many, including both
Republicans and Democrats, who
have been led to believe that we
must choose between protecting
jobs and protecting our environ-
ment. However, this is a false
choice. In the long run, protecting
our economy and preserving the
environment go together.
We cannot have one without
the other. The efWiron'me'nt is
important to the economy as a
source of food and water, as a source
of recreation and tourism and also
because green spaces and a clean
environment attract businesses and
families to a community. These are
all issues that can be seen here in
eastern North Carolina.
It is important to evaluate what
Gore has done already to protect
the environment before looking at
what he would do as president. In
his 1992 book, Earth in the Balance:
Ecology ami the Human Spirit, Gore
outlined the problems that plague
our nation. He proposed many
solutions in cleaning our air, water
and soil, on cracking down on
polluters, on developing cleaner
sources of energy and on protecting
our forests, rivers, public lands and
Asa member of the Senate, Gore
chaired the U.S. Congressional
delegation to the Interparliamen-
tary Conference on the Global
Environment, which produced an
agreement among 40 nations to
help reduce greenhouse emissions.
He also sponsored an amendment
in the Senate that stated that the
Environmental Protection Agency
should phase out chemicals that
deplete the ozone layer.
The New York Times reported
that Gore's amendment pushed
the environment-unfriendly Bush
administration in "a surprise
reversal of its public position
supporting a Senate action to
phase out much faster the chemi-
cals that damage the protective
ozone layer high in the atmo-
sphere In 1989, 300,000 metric
tons of chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs)
were emitted in the United States.
By 1996, ozone depleting CFC
emissions were eliminated.
As vice president, Gore was
instrumental in launching the
Partnership for a New Generation
of Vehicles, a joint effort of the Big
Three automakers and the federal
government with the goal of devel-
oping more fuel-efficient vehicles
within one decade. The Clinton-
Gore Administration also approved
legislation to strengthen the Safe
Drinking Water Act by requiring
water utilities to inform their cus-
tomers about the quality of their
drinking water. As a result of these
efforts, the population in areas
meeting drinking water standards
has increased from 196.1 million in
1993 to 229.8 million in 1999.
There have been many other
important environmental policies
created by the Clinton-Gore admin-
istration, but the question remains:
What will 'President' Gore do to
protect Mother Earth?
Gore proposes to stop com-
mercial exploitation of environ-
mentally sensitive land, including
the Arctic Refuge and oil and gas
drilling off the coasts of Florida and
California. He wants to protect our
forests by supporting the current
moratorium on road building in 43
million acres of national forests.
As President, Gore will
strengthen the Clean Water Act by
increasing funding for clean water
programs, tightening standards and
ensuring a more comprehensive
watershed approach to improve
water quality.
There are many other propos-
als and accomplishments of Vice
President Gore. For more informa-

Stupid people are taking over the world
Tulane Hullabaloo-The world is
getting stupider.
Don't believe me?
Most people can't spell Missis-
sippi, let alone point it out on a
map. Just as sad, according to U.S.
News' 2000 college rankings, Penn
State is one of the Top 50 schools
in the country (and Canada is also
a Top SO nation�get real). And if
all that wasn't enough to convince
you, either George W. Bush, Jr. or Al
Gore will, before long, be the most
powerful man in the world.
The world is getting stupider,
my friends, and it only took my
friend Nate to show me this.
Recently, Nate was watching a
hockey game on our television. But
this wasn't just any hockey game.
Nate was watching our Nintendo
64 play itself in NHL '98. I asked
him who his drug dealer of choice
was, and, eyes never leaving the
screen for fear of missing the action,
he responded, "It's a good game.
Czech is up 3-2 over USSR in the
2nd period
So now you know why I'm con-
vinced that the world is getting
stupider (or, if no one else, Nate
is). But, of course, I can't prove this
theory. I can tell you that George
W. Bush, Jr. has a "Top Priorities"
list on his official campaign website,
and that his third priority is "Put-
ting Education First
I can also tell you that in a
recent poll, only one in three Angli-
can priests could name all Ten
Commandments, but half said they
believed in aliens. I can tell you all
that, but I can't tell you that for a
fact the world is getting stupider.
And so, for lack of any statistical
evidence, I thought I'd share some
damned, damned stupid stories
with you that will hopefully con-
vince you that I'm right.
This first story comes straight
from Encino, Calif. Robert Freeman,
a dentist and lecturer on infectious
diseases, recently began selling a
line of neckties with magnified
pictures of diseases on them. "The
gonorrhea tie is the best-looking tie
in the whole lot Freeman says.
"The syphilis tie is gorgeous.
The plague tie is pretty, but
it's sold out Also available are
herpes, AIDS, chlamydia and ebola
ties, among others. (Reuters; from
The following AP story is just
too classic to not quote directly.
One question, though: Are all six
of these people LSU graduates, or
just four or five of them? I'll let
you decide. "Six people drowned
Monday while trying to rescue a
chicken that had fallen into a well
in southern Egypt. An 18-year-old
farmer was the first to descend
into the 60 foot well. He drowned,
apparently after an undercurrent in
the water pulled him down, police
His sister and two brothers,
none of whom could swim well,
went in one by one to help him,
but also drowned. Two elderly
farmers then came to help, but they
apparently were pulled by the same
undercurrent. The bodies of the six
were later pulled out of the well
in the village of Nazlat Imara, 240
miles south of Cairo. The chicken
was also pulled out. It survived
(AP, Cairo, Egypt; quoted from
The general welfare of the envi-
ronment is of the utmost concern
to American citizens, and no one
aspect looms larger than the threat
of global warming. In theory, global
warming is caused by the green-
house effect.
The greenhouse effect is the title
used to describe an excess of carbon
dioxide in the earth's atmosphere,
which upsets the critical balance of
heat that escapes and heat that is
trapped, causing a gradual climatic
shift in which the earth continually
grows warmer, ihis would have
obvious adverse effects on the
delicate balance industrialized man
has created with the earth.
Many densely populated areas
would be engulfed because of a
rising sea level attributed to the
melting polar ice caps, and shifts
in weather patterns would disrupt
the salubrious relationship between
farmer and field that has led to
remarkable productivity, resulting
in a calamitous food shortage.
Fortunately, there are modern
studies that are discovering that
the evidence for this apocalyptic
scenario is weak. One such study
is being conducted by John Daly
of the non-profit Greening Earth
Society, who uses temperature
data collected by satellites in his
attempt to debunk the myth. In
1979, these satellites, equipped
with a Microwave Sounding Unit
(MSU), were deployed to read the
temperature of the troposphere,
which is directly related to surface
and tropopause temperatures.
To do this, the MSU monitors
the wavelength of microwave emis-
sions from oxygen molecules, a
process that is accurate to within
0.01 degrees Celsius. Their conclu-
sion, up to the year 2000, is that
the earth has warmed .1 degree in
21 years. Until the warmth of the El
Nino weather pattern in 1997-98,
the satellites had actually recorded
a small amount of global cooling.
Valid data such as this should
lead to a healthy debate between
two factions of equally concerned
scholars, yet this is rarely accom-
plished. Ignorance of or intolerance
for this type of research leads to leg-
islative action like the controversial
Kyoto Protocol of 1997, through
which world leaders sought to
lower the amount of carbon dioxide
in the earth's atmosphere by plac-
ing environmental restrictions on
This action, supported by Vice
President Gore but rejected by
the U.S. Senate, would have had a
minimal impact on the ecosphere
while placing a tremendous burden
on business due to the decrees of
Washington bureaucrats.
The official stance proposed
by Bush is to "Oppose the Kyoto
Protocol because it is ineffective,
inadequate and unfair to America.
It exempts 80 percent of the world,
including major population centers
such as China and India, from
compliance The law making body
that assembled in Kyoto had good
intentions, but others cannot be
afforded the same compliment.
Proponents of global warming
have reached a new low with the
headline of the Aug. 20 edition of
the New York Times.
"An ice-free patch of ocean
about a mile wide has opened at
the very top of the world, a sight
that has presumably never before
been seen by human beings and is
more evidence that global warming
may be real stated Columnist
John Noble Wilford in his article.
This is a ridiculously inflam-
matory speech and is sensational
journalism at its very worst. The
truth is that the North Pole is
comprised of drifting ice, and often
times during the warmer months,
water, or a polyna, is visible. Navy
submarines have known this for
decades, as these areas make the
task of surfacing much easier.
It is impossible to have mean-
ingful progress in interpreting the
facts on global warming if such a
hostile and untruthful environment
continues to exist. The data should
be read according to science, not a
scientist's opinion, and the tactics
of fear practiced by journalists such
as Wilford may indeed sell papers
but should not constitute policy.

social, cultural, recreational and educational

faculty of KCU.

Although the Student Union does a great deal for
the University, being a member doesn't require a lot of
time, according to Mitchell.
"Each individual committee meets weekly for one
hour; so really time restraints aren't an issue Mitchell
said. "However, if you feel like you are too busy this
semester, by all means come back next semester.
"I think that one thing that a lot of students don't
realize is that each student is already a member of
the Student Union as soon as they pay their activity
fee he said.
Mitchell also believes that students don't realize
the power they hold.
"Being involved with Student Union is the only
way to say, 1 was on the committee that brought this
event to the University, " Mitchell said. "The students
have all the power in their hands. We are always

That's a question college student Steve Sawyer asked A hemophiliac who had contracted HIV and
hepatitis C through unscreened blood transfusions, Steve found himself angry with God. He was
given only months to live In spite of his anger toward God. Steve reached out to him for help.
What Steve discovered was not a God who could care less, but a God who cared so much that he
was willing to offer Steve the gift of eternal life
Before Steve's death, he learned that Jesus Christ died on a cross, taking the punishment for our
sins. Jesus died so that each one of us could be fully forgiven and have a relationship with God
that would last eternally The Bible says. For Cod so loved the world that he gave his one and only

PJCk Of the Week! Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan Millman
Bridget Hemenway
"Warriors, warriors we call our-
selves. We fight For splendid virtue, for
high endeavor, for sublime wisdom,
therefore we call ourselves warriors"
-Aunguttara Nikaya
The is how the preface of the
�book defines warrior in contempo-
rary terms. However, after reading
Way of the Peaceful Warrior by Dan
Millman, the term warrior takes on
a world of new meanings.
Dan, the main character based
on the author, is a world champion
gymnast and, like most of us, a
dedicated college student. He had
his future in order and knew what
he wanted to achieve, until he met
an elderly gas station attendant,
whom he calls Socrates. Through
their discussions and daily lessons
Dan learns that his future is not
his to plan.
Although the book does border
a bit on magical realism, the stories
told are inspirational and motiva-
tional. If you read it with an open
heart and an open mind, the les-
sons that Dan learned from Socrates
will become life lessons you will
cany with you forever.

challenged in life and it sort of
guides me. I don't know how
to emphasize how much it has
changed my life

lessons you will carry with you forever.

I was awake until 1 met Socrates,
who came to be my mentor and
friend Millman said. "Before that
time, I'd always believed that a life
of quality, enjoyment and wisdom

upon me as time passed. I never
suspected that 1 would have to

specific disciplines and ways of
seeing the world I had to master

Experience pays
dividends for volleyball team
Ryan Downey
To say that the senior class of the ECU volleyball
team has been through a lot is an understate-
ment. The team that has been through three coaches
and countless ups and downs has become the driving
force behind this season's hot start.
This season the team is 9-4, which equals last
seasons, win total. The class is made up of four very
different personalities from vocal leaders, to those who
lead by example. Cinta Claro, Liz Hall, Sarah Kary and
Luanda Mason come together from different parts of
the country, from as nearby as Durham, N.C and as
far as California, to form this year's team.
Claro came to ECU from Burnsville High School
in Minnesota. She majors in Leisure Service Manage-
ment, and plans to focus on creating programs for
underprivileged children that will keep them out of
"I believe that all kids deserve a chance, especially
the less fortunate Claro said. "Because of my personal-
ity I think I can open their eyes to their choices,
instead of focusing them on the negative aspects of
their lives
Claro, who says the most important thing she has
learned at ECU is how to work with people, has two
career triple doubles and

In high school, Claro
not only excelled on the
volleyball court where she was named all-state honor-
able mention and twice named to the all league team,
she also won the state title in badminton. She credits
her parents and grandparents for having a positive
impact on her life and helping her become a better
"They were always 100 percent behind me no
matter what decisions I made Claro said. "There is
nothing I can't tell them because I know they won't
judge me
Mason, from Durham, is a team captain. She is
majoring in biology with a concentration in Anatomy.
Mason who plans to lean towards research after
graduation credits her sister, LaKeya, who also played at
ECU, forgetting her involved with volleyball.
When she was younger she also did tap dancing,
ballet and played piano at the urging of her mother.
She attended Roxboro Person high school.
"By being a captain I am a leader, not just in a
leader role Mason said. "I have had people come up
to me and tell me I was a mentor, someone to look up
to, and someone they respected. That is something I
always pray for in life
Hall, from Antioch, Calif, is a powerful player with
a knack for making digs. Hall, who's career high for
digs is 25 versus South Alabama, came to ECU because
she likes the personality of the area.

"The people here are friendly, they stop smile and
talk. When they ask how you are doing they mean
it Hall said.
Hall who plans to return to California after gradu-
ation majors in recreational therapy, and plans to
work in a psychiatric hospital working with patients
to improve their interpersonal skills and increase the
quality of their lives.
Hall, who's mother would often drive her two hours
away for practices that lasted only an hour and a half,
credits her parents, and her brother and sister for
getting her where she is today.
Her sister Melissa played volleyball alongside her
until an injury forced her out of the game. However,
she kept encouraging Hall to go for her goals. She
excelled in high school being named team MVP for
Clayton Valley High School and being named to all
conference team and league MVP.
Kary, from Kalamazoo, Mich, is pre-med student
and plans to be family practitioner. She chose to come
to ECU because she was not only interested in medical
school, but because she was enticed by the natural

Tennis teams
answer early questions
Youth, leadership,
chemistry key for Pirates
Stephen Schramm
After a quick glance at the rosters of both the
ECU men's and women's tennis teams, a casual
observer could see cause for concern. The men's
squad features only three seniors, while the women's
team has none.
While Head Coach Tom Morris and his teams
could be worried about a perceived lack of leader-
ship, they aren't.
"I don't think it effects us
cither way, we're all leaders
said junior Andrea Terrill. "We
don't really need seniors to
lead us because we have a lot of
leaders on this team. As far as
class and age it doesn't matter
it's just going to be who's out
there to lead the team
While the teams may not
posses many seniors, the team
do feature an experienced core
of players.
"Everybody's been here for several years and
we're all helping out the freshmen said senior
Dustin Hall.
"You have to step up when there's no seniority
and lead the team Terrill said.
The early results have shown that the teams
have stepped up.
In the season-opening ECU Invitational earlier
this month, the Pirates got a balanced performance.
Junior Meredith Spears picked up wins over players
from Radford and Hampton, while Lyndall Jordan
and Terrill won as well.
"It went pretty well Terrill said. "We had a
bunch of good teams here on the clay, it was difficult
in that sense. Still, we all did really well
For the men, Alexandre (iirard notched two
victories in the tournament, as did NicolasJaffrelot.
Hall also picked up a win. Meanwhile in doubles,
the team of Oliver Thalen and Michael Huez also
"Really it was a good tournament Hall said.
"Everybody got to see where they're at. Seven
different teams we're here and you could pretty
much see their lineup one through eight and
see how we stack up in the draws. All the teams
were pretty competitive. I think we should have
a good year
On Sept. 15 and 16, the women's squad traveled
to Raleigh to compete in the Wolfpack Invitational.
Ontario-native Paulina Sierpinski led the Pirates win-
ning two matches over N.C.
State and Davidson. Terrill
won her opening match in
three sets while Jordan and
the team of Emily Kohl and
Spears also won. On the
second day of play, it was
Terrill who won her match
defeating Marshall's Jessie
Watkins 7-6(3), 6-4.
"It's amazing because we
played State my freshman
year and we were scared
Terrill said. "But we played
State now and we beat them, we beat most of their
players. We're definitely a strong team. We're tough,
we're going to be tough this year because we've had
a lot of experience against the top teams
In just two tournaments, any doubts anyone
had about the teams experience and leadership
are gone.
"I think we're a young team, but we only lost
one player from last year's team Morris said.
"We've got a couple new faces that are looking
pretty solid, so I think we're looking better this

Kyle Barnes
Women's sports in America have made huge progres-
sive movements in recent years and in accordance with
title IX, ECU has formed a women's golf team that
began play this season.
In their first two outings, the lady Pirates finished
fifth at Myrtle Beach, S.C. and eighth in Radford, Va.
The team hopes to build on this early success and
take this momentum they have gathered into the Fall
Intercollegiate Tournament at Greenville Country
Club on Oct. 2-3.
"Our expectations aren't set too high, but we we're
able to see what the team is capable of in the first two
meets, and we have a chance to be really competitive
said Coach Sally Hammel.
The women will play two consecutive 18 hole
rounds, one on Monday and then the final round will
be played on Tuesday of next week. The Greenville
course is 5850 yards in length, with par set at 71.
"The long game for me has always been there.
Consistency and accuracy around the green is what
I'm trying to focus on so that my scores stay as low
as possible said freshman Ashley Leonard. "We have
a good chance at winning the next three events, but
the schedule looks to be a lot more difficult in the
spring Leonard said.
Like most newly formed teams, ECU will rely on
young talent. The 2000 roster has seven freshmen.
With junior Kelly Noonan being the only upperclass-
man, the Pirates will have to rely on good scores from
freshmen golfers, Jessica Krasny, Ashley lonard and
Alyssa Hayes. The Pirates will be without freshman
teammate, lauren Robinson due to a suspension that
is still pending.
"In the last meet the inexperience of our team
played a big part, said Coach Williams. "Talent wise,
our team is competitive and good enough to win every
match we play in, however, the lack of experience is
going to be a challenge

Fox lands
exclusive baseball rights
NEW YORK (AP) � Get ready to call Fox "The Baseball Channel
Fox wrested exclusive TV rights to major league baseball's postseason
and All-Star game from 2001-06 as part of a package worth about
$2.5 billion.
The network will also retain its regular-season game of the week.
"We at major league baseball could not be happier with the result
baseball commissioner Bud Sellg said Wednesday. "They have been a
good partner and an innovative producer of our games
With the new Fox contract averaging about $417 million, and the
remainder of ESPN's regular-season contract averaging $152 million, the
two deals give baseball an average of about $570 million per season, or
$19 million for each of the 30 teams.
The $570 million represents an increase of 50 percent from the
$380 million baseball averaged the past five years from its contracts
with ESPN and its five-year deals with Fox and NBC, which expire
after the World Series.
Baseball originally hoped to capitalize on the recent trend of escalating
sports rights fees by tripling its TV contracts.
NBC and ESPN, which like ABC is owned by Walt Disney Co declined
to match Fox's offer for their postseason packages by Tuesday's deadline.
NBC, which will lose baseball for the second time in 12 years, broadcast
the sport from 1947 through 1989, often as baseball's sole national
network, then renewed the relationship in 1994.
ESI'N, has broadcast baseball since 1990, began an $800 million,
six-year regular season contract this season, with about $40 million
attributed to this year.
Gaining the relative ratings boost from the league championship
series and World Series meant more to Fox than the other broadcast
Fox had the biggest prime-time ratings decline of the four major
networks during the 1999-2000 season. Its average prime-time audience
of 8.97 million was down 17 percent from the year before, according
to Nielsen Media Research.
"With the postseason year in, year out, it's going to be a huge
advantage for the entertainment people Fox Sports Television Group
chairman David Hill said.
"The World Series is the No. 2 championship event in sports in terms
of promotion. You couldn't want a better promotional platform for your
entertainment programs
The last time one broadcast network owned the full baseball package
was 1990-93, when CBS lost hundreds of millions of dollars in a $1,057
billion deal, partly because of a steep decline in ratings and partly because
of a national recession.
"That was in a galaxy a long, long while ago Hill said.

Under the expiring arrangement, Fox and NBC split the league
championships and alternated televising the All-Star game and World
Series. Now Fox will have the TV rights to all of those events for six
seasons, in addition to its regular-season rights.
That means Fox won't have to worry about another network
underpricing it on selling commercials. "We will be able to maximize
advertising rates Hill said.
Of now having a single broadcast network partner, Selig said, "It's a
gTeat thing, stability. I really believe that having one partner over the
next six years brings stability and a certain cross-promotion that I think
will be very, very effective.
The more we talked about it the more we were convinced having one
partner was in our best interest
The extra load of first-round playoff games could be eased by shifting
some to cable channel Fox Sports Net.
In June, Fox rejected baseball's demand that the network increase its
yearly payments from $120 million to $360 million, while NBC declined
to up its payments from $80 million to $240 million.
Those decisions allowed baseball to try to sell its rights on the open
market. But CBS and ABC weren't interested in buying the rights at the
prices baseball was offering.
The pattern of rising rights fees began in 1997 when the NBA agreed
to four-year deals with NBC ($1.75 billion) and I'urner Broadcasting
($890 million) for $2.64 billion more than double the league's previous
In 1998, the NPL doubled its take by agreeing to contracts with CBS,
Fox and Disney totaling $17.6 billion over eight years.

From the Editors
Welcome to the new Foun-
tainhead, the arts and enter-
tainment magazine of The
East Carolinian.
Over the summer we made
some serious changes, includ-
ing a switch to monthly
format so we can dedicate
more time and effort to
exploring the subjects that
interest you. From now on,
we will focus on one dif-
ferent, specific subject every
month, although we will
still include some traditional
entertainment features such as
the calendar of events, the
new local band profile and the
old standby, "Things to do in
Greenville When You're Sober
This month's issue concen-
trates on the new season in
fashion. After visiting all the
malls in the region, reading
several In Style magazines and
watching Joan Rivers specials
on E we are sad to report that
Jams are not back. However, we
are happy to say that, thanks to
Macy Gray, the afro is.
So read on to find the
scoop on how to look your
best this fall and on what's
new in the entertainment
world. We hope you enjoy
the new Fountainhead. Let us
know how we're doing.

What's in for Fall: Fashion Preview
Gary Redding
staff writer
There is a fashion explosion
on ECU'S campus. Denim
is hot. Boots are banging.
Touches of glamour are
everywhere with the cutting
edge of makeup.
Females are "nailing" it
with length, creativity, and
color, and guys are blazing
the scene with khaki hues
as radiant as the sun. Snake
skin has been around since
Adam and Eve, but never
have we seen the tell-tale dia-
mond patterns in such fab-
ulous colors. The fashion of
beaded jewelry is heating up
and we see the hottest hair
America's college campuses
often set the tone for fashion
in the nation. College is a
time for fashion experiment
and trend delving. While
there is much synchronizing
in college fashion, there is
also much variety and indi-
vidualism from urban punk
to neo-Afrocentriciry to the
polished debutante. The key is
to discover fashion trends that
complement you best.
Expect to see colors. Metal-
lies, orange, fuschia and earth-
tones are the colors for the
season. Red is still a hot color
that will swing into the fall
and spring. Twenty-seven-year-
old Sita Dollie, a former fashion
coordinator with Coach stores
in Atlanta, now an ECU sopho-
more history major, lends this
fashion advisory.
"Coach has recently intro-
duced several leather styles in
deep red, and Nubuck orange
dominates Dollie said. "This
season Coach adds mohair in
an electric purple to their new
'Girlie Bag
The vintage vibe and the
retro look prove that good taste
is always in fashion. Wearing
the fashions of your grand-
mother or your uncle evoke
nostalgia and surprising intri-
cate personal family histories.
Abercrombie never goes out of style for the
college guy (top photo by Ryan Bradshaw.

Earthtones are in and so is sophistication, (photo by
John Stowe)

Patent leather open-toe shoes
with bare legs and calf-length
hemlines are not only sexy, but
remind us of a simpler time in
The waist is always a fashion
grabber. Slim, sparkly belts are
the love therapy for the waist.
A rhinestone strip, an animal
print or snake-skin leather is
the perfect detail, especially for
an ensemble that needs liven-
ing up. For a good fit, buckle
a belt at Its third hole or wear
the belt over a blouse. For a
flashy nighttime look, go over
the top with two or three thin
belts at once.
"The stomach will be in and
out this season said Mary
Miller, fashion diva and ECU
sophomore majoring in exer-
cise physiology.
Miller also advised that pants
will be baggier, and nothing
will beat soft sweaters.
"Ditch the flash and try the
quiet strength of nicer pants
and sweaters, and a classic dark
suit Miller said about this
year's men's wear trends.
Expressing fashion through
culture is another popular
way to go. Think anywhere
from the neo-Afrocentric look
with mixes of hip-hop, African
prints, head raps and rows of
arm bracelets to East Indian
custom of mehndi on a wom-
an's hands. Native American
silver rings and piles of Indian
jewelry really speak to this sea-
son's fashion.
Snake-skin boots are happen-
ing, but so are bi-color Timber-
lands and wooden mules.
"Layering your clothing will
be cool said Mikael Morancy,
a retailer at Greenville's Ameri-
can Eagle Outfitters. "Colorful
fleece jackets with zippers and
no gender, pea coats for
women, and a new line of boot
cut jeans for men is the new
movement in fashion
Natural short hair, as in the
Afro, micro braids and skull-
shaped cuts from raspberry to
blond to platinum veto the
hard stiff styles of the past. The
soft, bouncy look is the head-
line. Add a few rhinestones and
decorative hair broaches and
you have a glow girl.

Taking care of your hair in a
humid town like Greenville can
be somewhat difficult. Many
a bad-hair day have begun
with a losing battle between
frizzy locks and the unruly
brush dragged through them.
But there is something you can
"Use extra conditioner and
humidity-controlled hair sprays
to help keep hair from being
frizzy said Dora Scherer, a
hairstylist from A Cutting Edge
located in Greenville.
Another product which helps
control frizziness is polishing
shine. Oil can be used on Afri-
can-American hair to keep it
from becoming frizzy.
Many people do not realize
the number of products that
are unhealthy to put on hair.
. According to Tonya Puckett, a
hairstylist from A Cut Above,
one of the worst things you can
do to your hair is use Sun-In.
"We do a lot of corrective
color for that Puckett said.
Puckett also said that perox-
ide is also extremely damaging
to hair, and contrary to popular
belief, so is lemon juice. Both
these products can dry out hair.
And when you add the drying
and fading effect the sun can
have on your locks, it's easy to
see why simple salon products
like Paul Mitchell are the better
way to go.
One well-recommended
shampoo for those with extra-
long tresses is Mane and Tail,
a product made for horses that
works wonders on humans.
Portia de Rossi and Lucy Liu
both use it. The average cost of
effective salon products ranges
from $5 to $18.
Maintenance of your hair is
vital in keeping it healthy and
long-lasting. The professionals
suggest getting a trim regularly-
about every four to six weeks,
use separate shampoo and
conditioner, and wear a loose
fitting hat when in the sun.
As for style, this season's
cuts are looking closer and
simpler. Bedhead and classic
short are definitely in.
"The most popular
requested haircut is shaggy,
messy hairstyles like Meg
Ryan's said Nina Hastings
of Fringed Benefits in Green-
Some other popular hair-
styles for women are looks
like Nia Long and Halle
The George Clooney look is
popular for guys. It is a short
and tapered hairstyle which
gives a more natural feel and
a masculine demeanor.
Beware the Freshman 15
Brian Frizzelle
Assistant Fountainhead Editor
One of the many things
freshmen face each year is the
myth of the dreaded fresh-
man 15-extra weight students
are expected to put on during
their first year in college.
This increase in weight can
be attributed to several fac-
tors, such as the student's
level of physical activity and
the number of calories that
they intake. In other words,
making a habit of inhaling
mass quantities of pizza and
drinking enough beer that
Budweiser sends you a per-
sonal Christmas card can
have a negative effect on
your appearance.
"The fact that there is
a wide variety of food avail-
able on campus, all-you-can-
eat dining halls and the
multiple choices of fast food
in our campus restaurants
really makes it tempting for
students to overeat said
Laura Hartung, registered
dietitian and nutrition direc-
tor for Campus Dining.
Healthy eating is very
important and while students
may be more tempted to go
after pizzas or burgers and
fries, campus dining offers
plenty of healthy alternatives
for the student on the go.
"In our to-go spots, we
have salads and fat-free salad
dressings, grilled chicken sand-
wiches, yogurt, fresh fruit,
grilled veggie sandwiches and
bagels with fat-free cream
cheese Hartung said.
"At the dining halls we have
a vegetarian option for lunch
and dinner and a 37-item salad
bar Hartung said.
But simply choosing a salad
over a burger isn't always a
healthy decision.
"Some salads have a lot of
cheese and ham, and if you put
on a lot of dressing you can
fool yourself Hartung said,
in addition to adhering to
a healthy diet, students must
also exercise regularly in order
to avoid gaining those extra
pounds. This does not mean
doing arm curls with 12-ounce
cans of the Pabst Blue Ribbon
that you got at Food Lion in a
24 pack for 50 cents.
"When I was a freshman,
I avoided the freshman 15
by staying active at the rec
center and maintaining a sen-
sible diet said senior Julie
"Exercise is important Har-
tung said. "Today everything
is automated. People use ele-
vators and buses and are not
always walking. Who'd watch
TV if they didn't have a
remote? Any extra activity that
they can work into their sched-
ules is going to benefit them
Students have many oppor-
tunities for exercise. Examples
include walking to and from
class or by using the Student
Recreation Center (SRC).
According to Hartung, students
should use the SRC to their
advantage. The SRC offers a
fully-equipped gym, basketball
courts and indoor and outdoor
swimming pools. Aerobic classes
are also offered.
"I never really had to worry
about gaining weight in high
school because I was very active,
but college is a whole different
world said junior Lynn Bull-
ock. "Many people, for the
first time, are introduced to a
different type of lifestyle and
are responsible for themselves
hence partying, not working out
and eating junk food at three
in the morning. I never worried
about it until my sophomore
year. I think girls worry about it
more than guys
Males can also be affected by
the freshman 15.
"It's a misconception that it
affects women only said Zonya
Foco, registered dietitian and
author of "Lickety-Split Meals
"Men fall under the same
problems-alcohol, more food,
larger portions and late night
Dining Facilities sometimes poses a threat to freshman eating habits by
tempting them to get their money's worth, (photo by Laura Kowalski)
Fruts and vegetables are a wiser purchase in the interests of keeping off
those extra pounds, (photo by Laura Kowalski)
studying. It may be more prev-
alent in women but it is a
misnomer to say that it only
affects women. Men have the
same problems and they get
frustrated. They don't want to
put on 15 pounds either
The freshman 15 is a well-
known part of a student's
college experience. With a
healthy diet and regular exer-
cise, students can remain in
good shape and still enjoy
what college life has to offer.

A Podiatrist's Guide to Shoes:
Selecting the Best Fashion for Your Feet
New fashion shoe, clunky
heels; these are bad for feet
muscles and tendons. This
increases the chance of injury.
R-wear Rampage $29.99
at Shoe Carnival
Lace-up, casual shoe; oxfords
are not that bad, the lace-up
allows you to loosen up
and get a good feel.
Fanfares, $16.97 at Wal-Mart.
Open toe, open back; the flat
sandal is generally not good for
your feet.
No Boundaries, 10.97
at Wal-Mart
Dress Shoes
Categorized under flat, heel
and pump; heels are bad for
your feet; the higher the heel,
the more unstable the ankle.
Indersion ankle sprain can be a
result, this is when the foot
goes under the leg. Also, since
most dress shoes have narrow
points at the front, the toes get
pushed down into this point
which can cause bunions
and hammertoes.
Fanfares, $8.97 at Wal-Mart
Comfort shoe, has no back;
mules are not recommended
because there is no insole and it
does not control the rear foot.
Fanfares, $9.97 at Wal-Mart.
Categorized under dress, casual
and hiking; hiking boots are
a pretty decent shoe generally-
Brahma, $49.97 at Wal-Mart
Categorized under dress and
casual; clogs are not that bad
for you; well-constructed clogs
are generally better for the back
of the heel.
Red Stone, $24.99
at Shoe Carnival.
Basketball Shoes
Comes a little higher up than
regular tennis shoes; good for
people with ankle instability.
2XSports, $17.97 at Wal-Mart.
Tennis Shoes
Categorized under running,
cross trainer and walking; the
walking shoe is recommended
the most by podiatrists.

Tips From
on Choosing
Your Shoes
1. If a shoe is really
flat and flimsy, you will
most likely have many foot
2. Wear shoes that give
your feet room.
3. Try to have as little
pressure as possible on toes
and heels.
4. Get shoes that fit
your personal needs. Every-
one has their own unique
foot and their own prob-
lem. One shoe does not fit
5. When purchasing
active footwear, always buy
ones with a removable
6. Usually shoes that are
in cheaper stores are made
out of vinyl rather than
leather. Vinyl does not
allow the foot to breathe
or conform to the foot. So,
just because the shoe is
cheaper does not mean it is
the best.

Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder gets first taste of political rallies Cybill's back as host of new talk show
SEATTLE, Wash. (AP)-Eddie
Vedder's used to being on
stage. But this was different.
The front man for grunge
rock band Pearl Jam made his
first appearance at a political
rally Saturday night, when
he opened for Green Party
presidential nominee Ralph
Nader. In an interview with
The Associated Press after-
wards, Vedder said he's con-
sidering playing at more
Green Party rallies.
"It's not as easy as it looks
Vedder said. "But you just
want the message to get out
nationally and you want the
media to cover it more, so
if that means showing up,
you've got an obligation to
show up
Vedder declined to say how
playing at a political rally
differed from his usual gigs.
What's important, he said, is
not his feelings about that,
but his feelings about Nader's
"What he says, the truth is
so glaring compared to these
30-second sound bites you hear
from the other candidates
Vedder said. "He spoke for an
hour and a half and it all rings
Playing solo, Vedder accom-
panied himself with a ukulele
and an acoustic guitar as he
played two songs from Pearl
Jam's new album. He dedicated
one of them, "Soon Forget
to Microsoft co-founders Paul
Allen and Bill Gates. The song
is about a man whose immense
wealth can buy Corvettes and
high-rise apartments, but can't
buy back his soul.
Nader stressed similar themes
in his speech, contending that
corporate irresponsibility has
helped create an extreme
imbalance between the
immensely rich and the other
95 percent of the population.
Sitting alone off-stage, Vedder
applauded as Nader ran
through his philosophy of
social, economic, environmen-
tal and political responsibility.
About four months ago, Vedder
said, he gave the Nader cam-
paign a few thousand dollars of
the band's money-without the
band's permission.
"Basically, I told them the
next day, 'Hey, we donated
a few grand to Nader I
just assumed they'd agree with
me Vedder said. "They said,
'OK. But we have a few ques-
tions I think those questions
are getting answered
Vedder said a couple of band
mates attended the rally.
Duke, UNC-CH decline to ban Napster on campuses
DURHAM, N.C. (AP)-Both
Duke University and Uni-
versity of North Carolina-
Chapel Hill said Thursday
they would not stop students
and others on campus from
downloading music files on
the Napster computer pro-
gram. The attorney for
recording artists Metallica
and Dr. Dre earlier this
month asked Duke and
UNC-CH for the ban.
Lawyer Howard King
asked university offi-
cials to provide their
positions and instruc-
tions to students with
respect to access to Napster in
institutional networks.
The North Carolina cam-
puses were among more than
a dozen universities con-
"We are not aware of any
legal authority that would
require the university to ban
access to Napster wrote Duke
attorney Kate Hendricks.
Duke's letter said the univer-
sity "has long been committed
to fundamental principles of
academic freedom and uncen-
sored dissemination of knowl-
edge and information
The Duke letter said there
were other uses for the com-
puter program that didn't
infringe on musicians' owner-
ship rights of the music. Duke
also sent an e-mail to students
reminding them that copyright
infringement isn't a permitted
use of the university's com-
puter system.
Marian Moore, vice chancel-
lor for information technology
at UNC-CH, said the school
sent a letter last week rejecting
the ban. The letter said the
school was "taking all appropri-
ate steps in light of copyright
law she said.
That includes a two-hour ori-
entation for incoming
freshmen, who are the
first UNC-CH class to
be required to have
laptop computers. Stu-
dents were warned that
they, not the university,
were responsible for any
copyright violations, she said.
"The real issue is the revolu-
tion of the Internet and how
it affects intellectual property
and the protection of intellec-
tual property she said, adding
that the courts should decide
that issue.

Two Eugene men seek ban on
music from ice cream trucks
EUGENE, Ore. (AP)-Tinny
music from a circling ice cream
truck is a sound most children
love, but now grown men are
taking the noise seriously-and
using it to make a political '
point. Jerry Mohler, a retired
accountant, and Henry Camp-
bell, a retired attorney, want to
circulate a petition in Eugene
restricting the repetitive music.
The two friends decided to
use this noise "problem" to
illustrate what they believe is
wrong with Oregon's initiative
process. They say the steps to
get a citizen-sponsored initia-
tive onto the state ballot is
The state initiative process
will put 18 citizen-sponsored
ballot measures before voters
on Nov. 7-the largest number
since 1914.
"Anybody can do what I
did Mohler said.
His own initiative would pro-
hibit ice cream truck drivers
from playing any music for
more than five minutes in any
30 minute period. Mohler only
applied to circulate the petition
in the city of Eugene, but
the process for circulating a
statewide initiative is basi-

Local Band Profile:
Brian Frizzelle
Assistant Fountmnhmd Editor
Neversai is a five piece
metal band from Greenville,
N.C. that successfully fuses
the distorted thunder of
metal with catchy melodies
and boasts trje talents of a
singer who uses his voice
as an instrument instead of
screaming life a banshee all
the time.
The music compliments the
singing well. When the singer
is quiet, the music is too. But
when he wails, it crushes you.
The band's name is its own
story of lyrics.
"1 was downtown one night
and I started thinking about
the Versailles palace in
France said guitarist Todd
Smith. "I wanted something
to go with it and I came
up with never. When we
changed the French spelling
we had the name
The band's influences
which include Tool, Incubus,
the Deftones and Nirvana are
evident in their sound.
"Divide" starts out with
almost eastern flavored guitar
lines and explodes into Nir-
vana-esque heavy choruses.
"Better Than Broken" utilizes
several guitar effects that serve
to convincingly reproduce the
sound of alien spaceships. The
main melody of the song is
fast, but it tends to be catchy in
almost an old Soundgarden sort
of way.
The beginning notes of
"Green Exit" sound a little like
Pink Floyd's "Run Like Hell
The guitar intro can trick you
into thinking it's the 70s again
if you close your eyes. But that
is where the similarities stop
as the music changes into a
heavy but tight rhythm that
just makes you want to move
around. The interplay between
the instruments is impeccable.
Neversai is definitely one of
the tightest band around and
it shows on this song. "Vinyl
Sunset" also brings to mind
The Wall-en Pink Floyd with
its organ-like guitar sounds and
slow drumbeat. This song is
different from their others in
that it makes you want to
stop and listen instead of jump-
ing around. Even your mother
might like this one.
"I see our music as pop-core
said vocalist Paul Royce. "It's
really heavy but at the same
time very catchy
The band is adamant about
only playing the songs that they
"We have 17 songs that are all
different Smith said. "But we
do not play covers
Neversai has played at the
Attic, the Corner, Backdoor,
Sharky's, Big Al's and various
house parties around Greenville,
as well as this summer's metal
fest held in Grimesland.
Neversai utilizes great dynam-
ics in their songs and the inter-
play between their instruments
is exceptional. The rhythm of
the music flows almost to the
point of making the listener
think of riding on waves. Their
songs are the foot-stomping
head-banging kind of good. The
songs may be different, but they
all keep you moving.
"We want to take this as far as
we can go with it said guitarist
Garrett Bissonette. "We don't
want to be on MTV. We love
Napster because of free music
and think it's wrong for artists
to fight against it. We're in it for
the fun and not to get paid
Neversai plays somewhere in
the area just about every week

CD Review:
Barenaked Ladies, Maroon
� ���
Emily Little
Nobody puts words to
music like Barenaked Ladies.
They always seem to have a
knack for figuring out what
to say when, so their lyrics
always sound natural and
meaningful, even if they're
not. Their latest album,
Maroon, continues in that
great tradition.
"Anyone perfect must be
lying, anything easy has its
cost run the words over a
matching see-saw rhythm in
"Falling For the First Time
Movie Review:
What an astute yet simple
observation. It's so rare to find
a band that never stops talking,
yet never runs out of interesting
things to say. They don't just
stick lyrics on a tune; they mesh
the two together in one fluid
And speaking of lyrics, these
happy Canadians love to dis-
pense advice. "If you need her,
you should be thereGo home
they suggest in "Go Home

ation they advise that when
bad things happen, we should
just sit back and laugh at our-
selves. An overwhelming major-
ity of the songs on Maroon

After all, that's what these
guys do. Never has there been
a group of musicians with more
playful charm. Most of the
songs on this album are good
for dancing around the living
room in your pajamas. And
what's more fun than that?
But not everything on
Maroon is sweetness and light.
"Off the Hook" and "Heli-
copters" are two traditional,
mainstream songs with very
little to offer in the way of
creativity. You could skip right
over those two tunes, conve-
niently located right next to
each other at the end of the CD
and never miss them.
Urban Legend 2: Final Cut
� ��
Nikia Jones
Staff Writer
If you're going to see Urban
Legend 2: The Final Cut to be
scared, you may as well save
your money. There are only
two scary parts in it.
I was just hoping for the
movie to be as good and
exciting as the first "Urban
Legend and I was disap-
This is not a continuation
of the first movie with
Rebecca Gayheart in it. It
has a whole new theme,
and I've never seen a lot of
these actors and actresses in
it before. A couple have been
in some television shows, but
other than Loretta Devine,
the rest are 'rising stars
The quality of the movie is
mediocre. Sorry guys! Loretta
Devine, otherwise known as
Reese, is the only person of
substance from the first Urban
Legend that carries over into the
second with a viable part in the
new movie. She offers comic
relief to an otherwise sketchy
and somewhat confusing plot.
Oddly enough, her hair changes
from second to second within
the same clip. One second it is
frizzy and curly, and then the
next it is nice and neat.
Another problem I had with
the movie was the use of ter-
minology. Urban Legend 2 takes
place on a college campus that
concentrates on the art of film-
ing. Once the movie begins roll-
ing, the actors begin using film
terminology without telling the
audience what they are talking
about. They constantly spoke
about "DPs You don't find
out what a DP is until you are a
little less than halfway through
the movie. By the way, a DP is a
director of photography.
Also, don't you hate a movie
that has a great beginning and
only goes downhill from there?
Remember how the first Saeam
started off with Drew Barry-
more getting butchered, and
then it kinda slowed down
from there to be less graphic?
Don't get me wrong, I love
Saeam, but the beginning was
the best part of the movie.
Urban Legend 2 has that same

Get a Tattoo
Emily Little
I'm back, boys and girls!
That's right, all you lonely
people who spent the summer
pining away for suggestions on
how best to spend your alco-
hol-less stupors, I've got just
the answers you've been wait-
ing for.
For those of you new to the
university experience, allow me
to explain. You may not believe
it now, but getting drunk three
nights a week gets mighty old
after a while, and pretty soon
you too will want somewhere
to go that doesn't include bad
hip hop and vomit. So, in the
name of entertainment, I give
up perfectly good hours I could
be doing homework to go out
and have fun. It's a tough
job, but I suffer through it so
you don't have to. And yes, I
do stay completely sober while
engaged in these activities.
This time I really did suffer
when I went to Garry's Skin
Grafix to get a tattoo. If anyone
ever tells you that getting a
tattoo doesn't hurt, they are
lying like a dead possum in
the middle of the on-ramp to
a weigh station on the high-
way. See, I went in there think-
ing I had a high threshold for
pain, that I could take anything
without flinching. Nope. When
it came down to it, I was a
wimpy little girl.
Here's how it works. First, I
picked out the picture I wanted
permanently attached to my
left lower back, which is not
easy in the face of so many
tempting drawings of skulls and
naked women. I briefly consid-
ered having "Property of TEC"
stamped on my forehead, but at
the last minute I opted for a
sneaky little black panther that
cost $100. Then I signed a form
saying I wouldn't sue if Neil
the tattoo guy ripped out my
spleen because he hiccupped
while drawing the little pink
nose on my pretty pussycat.
Be sure to wear loose clothing
when you get your tattoo. I
had on cotton drawstring pants
and a very loose tank, which
was definitely a wise wardrobe
choice for comfort both during
and after the procedure. For one
thing, holding the tank up out
of the way gave my hands some-
thing to grab onto while my
back was being carved up like a
Actually, it's really the outline
that hurts. The filling-in feels
more like a constant sunburn.
About 10 minutes into the
procedure I nearly passed out.
Neil said that was perfectly
normal and that it usually only
happened once. So, naturally,
it happened twice. That was
when the receptionist suddenly
appeared in the tattoo room
with a magic wet towel and
ordered me to sponge off my
sweaty, woosey face. After a few
minutes of staring wearily into
the anime-like paintings on the
wall in front of me, I was ready
to go again.
After that second time I
Started to, tell my life story
to the photographer, a friend
who came to watch and Neil
the tattoo guy, and that helped
because it kept my brain too
occupied to notice what I was
doing to my nerves. It will also
keep you from asking, "Are you
done yet?" every five minutes.
I highly recommend talking,
even though at first you may
not feel like it.
My mom always says you
have to get mighty ugly to get
beautiful. In this case, I had
to undergo some major discom-
fort. But in the end, when I
stood up and saw that pretty
little black cat creeping across
my backside, I was pleased.
Good thing too, because I
couldn't very well ask Neil to
remove it. Forty-five minutes
of pain led to a beautiful piece
of artwork I'll have forever.
Now doesn't that sound
like something fun to do on
your weekday afternoon? And
remember, they won't tattoo
you if you're drunk because
your blood doesn't clot prop-
erly, so you have to go sober.
It's best to have a clear head
anyway, so you don't end up
with "Go Braves" across your
shoulder blades.
Garry's Skin Grafix is open
Monday-Thursday 1 p.m9
p.m Friday 1 p.mlO p.m
and Saturday noon-10 p.m
and is located near Greenville
Boulevard on Highway 264
alternate. For more informa-
tion call 756-0600.

He's a local, and he's been hanging out at club

He takes his hat off for only one thing.

She always wears a white top, black pants and
platform shoes. She hasn't been away from home
for very long, but she loves the new attention.

unsuspecting girls at dance clubs and
trap them into grinding.

Listen for him cat calling the hoochies as
they cross the street. He always wears a

This girl wants everyone to know how
much she doesn't care what anyone
