Leigh Harvey .McNairy,
the North Carolina 3rd
District Democratic can-
didate for Congress along
with Sen. John Edwards
addressed supporters at
a rally held at the Pitt
County Boys and Girls
Club Sunday.
"This is our hope of
our future and that is what
this election is all about
McNairy said when asked
why she chose to hold the
rally at the Boys and Girls
Club. "This is an election
about our future, and
where better to start than
with the boys and girls
club
Edwards, who has
been a senator since Janu-
ary 1999, voiced his sup-
port for McNairy.
"I am here today
because of something that
I am deeply and per-
sonally committed to
Edwards said. "Which is to
make Uigh McNairy the
next Congresswoman
Edwards said he
believed North Carolina
could benefit from having
representation from some-
one of McNairy's charac-
ter.
"What this district
needs in the worst pos-
sible way
is a loud,
fierce, pas-
sionate
voice and
that is
what this
woman
will give
you
Edwards
said.
The
rally was
free and
open to all Pitt County
citizens.
Harry Steter, a letter
writer, and his wife Vir-
ginia, both Pitt County
citizens, attended the rally

The steam line proj-
ect previously in front of
Christenbury Memorial
Gymnasium is scheduled
to move to the next phase.
The second phase of the
project begins today.
This will involve
underground work, which
will begin on the west
side of College Hill Drive
near Green Mill Run, and
continue southward up
the hill in approximately
200 foot increments.
The project is expected
to last through the end
of the fall semester. As a
result, beginning today,
College Hill Drive will
only allow one-way traf-
fic, running northbound
from the top of the hill
to the bottom of the hill.
Vehicles will not be per-
mitted to turn onto Col-
lege Hill Drive from 10th
Street.
"We (ECU Transit) are
at the mercy of the con-
tractor said ECU Transit
Manager Scott Alford in
response to the length of
time College Hill Drive
will remain one-way.
ECU Transit routes will
be affected. The bus stop,
which was temporarily
located at lower College
Hill Drive will revert back
to Christenbury Gym.
"The Commuter, Silver
and Campus Shuttle will
go back to Christenbury
starting at 7 a.m. (today)
instead of stopping at
the temporary stop at the
bottom of College Hill
Alford said. "This will be a
permanent change
Other bus lines will
also be affected.
"Changes to the Blue
and Gold lines will be
until the end of the semes-
ter Alford said. "The
Pirate Ride and Freshmen
Shuttle will stop across
form the regular shelter
stops; students will just
have to cross the street
Changes to the ECU
Transit routes include:
Gold Route: The
Gold Route will not travel
on College Hill Drive until
the road reopens to two-
way traffic. The stop at the
bottom of the hill will be
relocated to 10th Street,
on the corner of College
Hill Drive. The stop for
the top of the hill will be
relocated to 14th Street,
straight out from the
middle of Belk Resi-
dence Hall.
Bine Ronte: The
Blue Route will not
travel on College Hill
Drive until the road
reopens to two-way
traffic. The current
stop at the top of the
hill will be relocated to
14th Street, straight out
from the middle of Belk
Residence Hall.
Pirate Ride: Pirate
Ride will continue to serve
College Hill by using Elm
Street to travel from 10th
to 14th streets, and then
using College Hill Drive
to return to 10th Street.
The bus will stop across
the street from the current
bus stop shelter at Tyler
Hall.
Freshman Shuttle:
Freshman Shuttle will
continue to operate as
normal by running the
stops in reverse order. The
bus will serve Curry Court
(Belk Building), College
Hill and Mendenhall Stu-
dent Center in that order.
The College Hill stop will

Voter.com makes voting one step easier

ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Voter.com is a new
Internet source that pro-
vides political informa-
tion on candidates and
their platforms for mil-
lions of Americans to
review during the Election
2000.
Founded in November
1999, Voter.com is a pri-
vately held Web site cre-
ated exclusively to edu-
cate and empower the
voter.
"I think it is easier for
college students to log
on through this Internet
site and get what they
need on debates and news
for these elections said
Franca Renzulli, assistant
director of media relations
at Voter.com.
Voter registration
forms and absentee bal-
lots were accessible to ail
citizens for a long period
time. More then 25,000
citizens nationwide have
already prepared them-
selves to cast their vote
in Election 2000 through
Voter.com.
Since the scheduled
Election Day is Nov. 7, the
public will no longer be
allowed to obtain registra-
tion forms at the end of
this week since the nation
requires registration forms
to be completed no later
than 30 days before Elec-
tion Day.
"I know that the
window of opportunity to
obtain one of these forms
is quite small right now
since we cannot accept
forms after Oct. 6 Ren-
zulli said. "If it were up
to us, we would have reg-
istration available up to
the day of elections
To encourage students
to vote, Voter.com has
conducted various cam-
paigns at several universi-
ties including Harvard,
Pepperdine and George
Washington universities.
"We are trying to give
students the information
that they need by the time
elections come around
Renzulli said.
Even as the Internet
assumes a dynamic role
in the quest for the presi-
dency, the divergent Inter-
net strategies have sparked
a lively debate on which
of them makes the best
use of cyberspace.

McNairy said she believes the
current North Carolina education
system is in need of reform from
the inside out, beginning with the
hiring of 100,000 new teachers.
"Hiring new teachers into edu-
cation system will decrease our
class size Mcnairy said.
She also voiced her support of
the notion of a Target Tax Relief.
"There are several areas for
Target Tax Relief Mcnairy said.
"One is to help families with young
people in college by providing up
to a $10,000 tax credit. Another
tax credit would be for working
families with child care, and relief
for families caring for the very sick
elderly
McNairy, a Kinston native, grad-
uated from the University of North
Carolina at Chapel Hill in where
she met her husband John McNairy.
She began her career as a public
school teacher while attending
Duke University to earn her master's
degree in teaching.
To add to her teaching experi-
ence, McNairy has served for 12
years on the Lenoir County Board of
Education, as well as the Advance-
ment Council for ECU School of
Education and the ECU Foundation
Board of Directors.

HOW DO I KNOW WHETHER I'M A
DEMOCRAT OR A REPUBLICAN?
An Open Letter to the Students of East Carolina University
A young man who is a close friend of our family was recently heard asking this question. Our daughter's answer: "Decide
which issues are most important to you, and then vote for the party that more closely supports your position
With 26.5 million 18-24 year-olds living in the United States, you are in a position to play a major role in this year's
election. The presidential race is a close one in North Carolina and Your vote can make a difference. Our family has
pooled its resources to place this letter in The East Carolinian because we are concerned about the outcome of the elec-
tion this November and we recognize the powerful voting block you represent. The next President of the United States
will make decisions that directly affect your life. He will also appoint at least three Supreme Court Justices who will
interpret our laws for the next 30 to 40 years!
EDUCATION
Al Gore supports
� increasing funds available for grants and student loans;
� reducing interest rates on student loans; and
� making college tuition and fees tax deductible up to $10,000 per year.
Bush's education agenda is narrow because his proposed tax cut (which
benefits the wealthiest 2) leaves few resources to invest in education or
to help families afford higher education.
ENVIRONMENT
Al Gore has been a leader on the environment for more than 20 years by
� working to combat global warming;
� increasing funding and use of mass transit and
� increasing funding for national parks.
Bush has been called "the Polluters' President by the Sierra Club. Texas rates
� first in the amount of cancer causing chemicals pumped into the
air and water; and
� dead last in the number of children with health insurance.
CIVIL RIGHTS AND AFFIRMATIVE ACTION
AlGore
� Believes all Americans regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, or
physicol ability deserve equal protection under the law; and
� will work to reform welfare, protect civil rights, and protect and defend
woman's right to choose.
Bush
� vehemently opposes gay rights, affirmative action, and hate crime
prevention laws; and
� has vowed to "do everything within my power to restrict abortion "This
is the pro-life party
We strongly urge you to vote for Al Gore on November
7th! If you have not yet registered to vote
� Log on to algore.corn and register, or pick up a Voter Registration Form
at the nearest Post Office, and
� Make sure you receive an absentee ballot if you will be out of your
precinct
on November 7th
Sincerely,
Gayle & Dean Weinberg &. Family

OUR VIEW
To those of you who
couldn't hold your liquor,
or who just thought it
would be great fun to
chuck a heavy shoe at
exposed heads, or who
stumbled over the bar-
ricade and fought with
security, or who lobbed
innocent crowd surfers
through the air: Crow up.
This last Saturday, the youth of Greenville and its surrounding areas made a
fool of themselves. We were embarrassed to be associated with people at X-Fest
who elbowed each other in the face, climbed on very expensive equipment
and nearly crashed the whole stage, and the mass of inconsiderate idiots who
threw bottles at the bands as they were trying to entertain us.
As a result of this obnoxious behavior, several of the show's patrons went
away with bloody noses, black eyes, slight concussions and jail terms. It was
so bad that 2 Skinnee 's ordered the crowd to behave itself. And this is a band
that regularly produces mosh pits.
To those of you who couldn't hold your liquor, or who just thought it
would be great fun to chuck a heavy shoe at exposed heads, or who stumbled
over the barricade and fought with security, or who lobbed innocent crowd
surfers through the air: grow up. We promise you can still have fun without
being stupid or drinking.
We want these bands to come back. We want to have more festivals like
X-Fest. But after our behavior Saturday, we can't expect any musicians to
want us as a crowd. Would you want to come back to a place where people
threw beer-filled bottles at you?
But it's not just the bands we should be considerate of. Some of the
people who were just trying to see a good band ended up being punished
with injuries. Why do the people who stand right next to the stage have
to try to kill each other?
So here are a few tips for the next time we are able to convince some
good bands to come our way:
1. Mosh away from the stage. If you want to play rough, do it where
you only hurt each other.
2. When people are crowd surfing, pass, don't throw. Every time you toss
someone up in the air they come down hard on someone else's head.
3. Don't ever throw bottles at the stage. It's just rude.
4. Don't drink more than you can handle.
See? It's not hard, just don't be stupid.

infuriated by The Food and Drug
Administration's (FDA) approval of
the so-called abortion pill, RU-486,
called for a local curfew and law
against premarital sex at a rally last
Friday afternoon. The loosely orga-
nized band of conservative groups
demanded that local police enforce
an 8 o'clock curfew throughout the
dry of Greenville.
The curfew is an effort by local
community leaders to reduce irre-
sponsible sexual activity in the city
by forcing people out of potentially
social situations in restaurants and
bars and into their homes by 8
o'clock.
The newly elected chair of The
Pitt County Christian Coalition for
Rednecks and other Good Country
Non-Yankee Citizens (PCCCRGC-
NYC), I.ee Elmer Gestapo outlined
the groups plans Friday at a local
car dealership.
"If the gosh dern government
is going to make it so dern easy for
these women to have a dern abor-
tion, then we're gonna make it hard
for these sinners to fornicate
Several cars were overturned
at the rally and two salespersons
were taken to a local hospital and
treated for minor head injuries and
ignorance shock.
RU-486 is a drug that allows
women to have an abortion with
relative ease as compared to the
procedures currently available. The
FDA found that the drug was safe
back in the 1980's but until now, it
has been unavailable to American
women because of political action
groups like the PCCCRGCNYC, the
Republican party, the National Rifle
Association (NRA) and the North
Carolina Dog Catchers Associa-
tion.
The Greenville Police had no
official comment on the proposed
8 o'clock curfew, although one
senior officer, Ian M. Dense felt the
plan should be extended to include
general searches throughout the
night.
"It's a shame, this killing pill,
now all them girls will want to have
abortions, people just screwing and
murdering their young'ens Dense
said. "It's got to be stopped. Next
thing you know we won't have no
more babies and then the Chinese
will invade. I'm voting for Bush,
that's for damn sure
It's unlikely the curfew will be
approved by the town council,
which is bogged down in a battle to
implement a long needed upgrade
in the city's traffic light system and
refuses to consider any legislation
that doesn't deal with zoning, traf-
fic or the renaming of city streets.

IN MY OPINION
U.S. should participate in nuclear arsenal bans
As of now, just about every
country has some type of a nuclear
arsenal. It may be a big arsenal or
it may be a small one, but even a
small arsenal of nuclear weapons
is enough to create destruction of
drastic proportions.
And as time goes on, more and
more countries are making their
nuclear threat clear by testing their
weapons. The United States seems
to be reacting to these tests more
than any other country; they are
very nuclear sensitive.
It is clear that the superpowers
of the world today have more than
enough nuclear power to destroy
the world. However, they (espe-
cially the United States) don't want
any other country having these
weapons of mass destruction.
As soon as any country other
than their allies tries to conduct any
type of weapons of mass destruc-
tion, which would make it at least
somewhat competitive military
wise, they start to put sanctions on
them and condemn their behavior,
even though they themselves are
testing weapons far more danger-
ous. This is very hypocritical and
irresponsible.
They should never have tested
this many weapons of mass destruc-
tion to begin with and then have
made sure that no one else is doing
so either. That would have been
the responsible thing to do and
would have made the world a safer
and better place. But as long as you
have this type of an arsenal, you
cannot tell others not to do the
same; no matter how unstable the
country might be.
When Pakistan and India started
testing weapons, the United States
reacted more than India and Paki-
stan themselves when the other
tested; they seem to be obsessed
with this and feel more insecure
than anybody else even though
they are sitting more than 2000
miles out of range.
Again, their answer was to pul
sanctions on both countries. While
India was merely tapped on the
wrist (I would say slapped but it
wasn't even that bad), Pakistan was
much more severely affected. As
with the Iraqi sanctions, the only
people that suffered were the poor;
those receiving federal assistance
in Pakistan were now down to
receiving only one meal a day. The
Pakistani nuclear program was not
affected in the least.
In a very interesting interview,
Peter Jennings of ABC News went to
Pakistan recently and interviewed
the new prime minister. While
asking a series of questions, he
asked: how do you feel about start-
ing the nuclear arms race?
The Pakistani prime minister
answer: oh, you guys don't have
nuclear weapons? The point being
that even though the United States
has long had nuclear weapons and
a fierce and continuing arms race
with Russia and China, they are
blaming others for starting this
race, even though Pakistan is the
last country to go nuclear thus far.
In another stunning and incred-
ibly dim-witted attempt to restrict
weapons testing, the United States
has asked these countries to sign a
treaty which stops them from test-
ing certain types of weapons while
allowing a select few countries to
continue to doing so.
Wow, that's like asking me to
stop studying for a while so that
you could get a better rank. So
basically, we want to advance our
weapons, leaving absolutely no
defense or advancement for you,
sounds good? The United States
has to realize the dangerous situa-
tion developing around the globe
and the only way to stabilize the
situation is to participate in these
types of bans themselves.

yfeo IN MY OPINION
Pregnancy does not mean marriage
Why do guys that get girls preg-
nant feel as if they must marry
them? This may just be a trivial
question for some people, but it is
one that has been weighing heavily
on my mind lately.
Guys, marrying a girl you get
pregnant is a respectable thing
to do, but if you know you are
going to wake up next to her every
morning cringing, why in the heck
did you put a ring on her finger?
First off, the obvious you should
have worn protection.
Most guys between the ages of
18-25 are not ready to get married.
They still want to run around being
a player and taking girl's hearts and
smashing them on any surface they
can find. Do you realize that once
you put that diamond or cubic
zirconium or whatever you can
find on her finger, you are all in all
giving that up. You are saying, "My
wild days of partying with Monica,
Tisha and Rebecca are over I don't
think a lot of guys realize this.
That is why the divorce rate among
people our age is so high.
Nevertheless, you have the guys
who sincerely believe they have
find their sole mate. Now that is
OK. Good for you guys! If you
know that you are going to love
her through all of her trials and
tears, and even when she gets into
an accident and is scarred for life,
that you will still stand behind her,
then way to go for you. If you're
not willing to commit yourself
to remaining loyal to your mate
during those 'unthinkable' times,
forget it. Your love won't last.
There are other solutions besides
marriage if your girlfriend is preg-
nant. There is such a thing as
paying child support and getting
on with both of your Uves. People
make unexpected 'mistakes' all the
time. And honestly, who's to say
that baby is yours for those females
that sleep around. Think about
that too.
So guys and girls, be open
minded. Yes you are bringing a little
one into the world, but you don't
have to be with someone you don't
love in order to do so. Supporting
that child should be your number
one responsibility. If your child
sees you waking up everyday crying
because you hate waking up next to
its mother, they're going to know
something is wrong.
Go ahead and turn what you
may possibly consider a mistake
into a learning process. Make sure
that you love the next person you
sleep with and be sure to wear
protection.

The Daily (U. Washington),
Seattle-It's amazing how some
people can interpret some parts
of the Constitution very literally
while interpreting other parts quite
liberally. While the latter method
is often referred to as a "loose con-
struction it just as often reflects
loose thinking.
One of these interesting ironies
involves House Resolution 548,
which the U.S. House of Representa-
tives passed in July. It encourages
the display of our national motto,
"In God We Trust in all public
buildings. And it was introduced
by Colorado representative Bob
Schaffer.
Schaffer is a Republican, and
despite his party's fierce defense of
gun rights ("Second Amendment!
Second Amendment), he seems to
be ignoring the whole separation-
of-church-and-state declaration in
the Constitution. Ironic then, that
the Republican Party is considered
"conservative which, in its gen-
eral definition, means opposed to
change.
Changing the notion of secular
government is a radical move.
Then again, maybe it isn't. Right
now, I have a pocket full of God.
Pennies, quarters, dollar bills and
all other things monetary include
said "national motto including it
on currency is relatively new.
When the United States went
off of the gold standard, we had to
have something on which to base
the value of our money, and what
better to use than something that
couldn't be proved or disproved?
God was a natural choice.
And the pledge of allegiance (it
being a heinous concept to begin
with) includes "under God Prayer
in school may be a debated topic,
but somehow, no one seems to
notice that our elementary students
are forced to pray in school at the
start of every day, right after the
playing of the national anthem.
Some are quick to point out
that God is vague, a concept shared
by "most" religions, and therefore
non-denominational. But most
is not all, no matter who's defin-
ing it. And while majority rule
may be a concept ingrained in
society, individual religious choice
is something to which this concept
should not be applied.
Schaffer, however, uses the
motto's display on United States
currency as a defense for his mea-
sure. The Rocky Mountain Col-
legian quoted him as saying, "Our
national motto is on our money
as well, and I've never heard of a
Muslim or a Buddhist who refused
to spend his money because that
was written on there
Right.
Well, I've seen a few dollar bills
in my day, and more than one of
them has had either pathetic or
offensive slogans handwritten on it.
That hasn't made me embarrassed
to spend money, and the fact that
"In God We Trust" is engraved on
the plates that print bills doesn't
mean it's any more authoritative.
All I care about are the numbers in
the corners.
Once those bills are back in my
wallet, out of sight, I start caring
about other things again, such as
not having to see "In God We Trust"
displayed in government establish-
ments. I sure as hell don't trust in
God, so it leaves me wondering
who this elusive "we" is.
I suspect that "we" are the self-
righteous who would have me
believe that I'm less of a person
because I don't agree with them.
But another question comes
to mind: What happened to "E
pluribus unum" being our national
motto? I'd much rather see that
engraved in the local passport
office. After all, out of many, every-
body is one.

Smitten teacher

Eyebrows were raised two years ago
when Laura Sclater, a then 28-year-old

to him as a "hottie" and "big stud" and
signed the notes "your woman

He was originally placed in the back of

Three monkeys escaped from their

circus in North Carolina and made it to a

Motorists, who do not normally see
wild animals as they commute to work,
were somewhat surprised. The monkeys
fled into the woods.

Before checking out of the Indianhead
Motel in Chippewa Falls, Wis a guest
stripped his room clean, stealing a TV

that he had registered for the room
under his real name. Police recovered
the stolen items at the apartment of Ken-

TEC does X-Fest
Staff members venture out for day of
rock stars, sunburn and chaos
Emily Little
FOUNTAINHEAD EDITOR
It started out as a standard rock festival, the
"big ass concert in the big ass field There was a
long line to get in, bands were constantly switching
places on stage, dozens of stinky port-a-potties lined
the edges of the orange netting that surrounded the
field. People were smiling, drunks were segregated
into a beer garden where they happily and quietly
consumed their alcohol together, bikers were doing
tricks on a ramp, vendors were selling their wares.
Best of all, the sun was shining and the sky was
blue. Then it all went to hell.
This was our plan last Saturday when five female
members of TEC went to X-Fest, the first music
festival sponsored by 99X: See bands, eat lunch and
meet Eve 6. The latter was preceded by an e-mail
exchange between me and the band's drummer
where we asked if they would like to hang out with
some newspaper girls after the show so we could
write a neat 5w-type article, and he said "Sure
So naturally, we were very excited.
Our first mission, once we passed through the
guarded gate, was to find food. Laura the vegetarian
photographer found this especially difficult since
everything they offered was greasy and meaty. We
ate pepperoni pizza, and she ended up settling for
a fried, greasy onion with ranch dressing. It was
the only vegetable in the place.
We sat down on an old bedspread I'd brought
and listened to Cowboy Mouth. It was a really
fun show, overall, and I still had their version of
"Jenny Says" in my head at the end of the day.
After they popped offstage, we wandered around
and ran into "Jo-Jo the psychedelic rock 'n' roll
clown and he made us balloons that were later
stepped on.
That was when we spotted Brian, my lormer
assistant, interviewing Fred, the singerdrummer
from Cowboy Mouth. Fred was sitting in the back
of an ambulance to stay out of the sun, which was
at that moment baking our very pale skin into a
nice souffle. Brian waved us over.
The combination of pigtails and overalls must
have been too much for Fred, because coaxed me
into the ambulance and plunked me onto his lap.
Then he tried to eat my braids and my arm.
"What's your favorite part of the job?" Brian
asked.
"This Fred said. "Look. I have a goddess on my
lap Ihen he called me "the woman I'm going to
divorce one day He also wrapped a towel around
Melyssa the editor's head. So that was nice.
We spent SR-71's performance chilling on the
bedspread, but when 2 SklnneeJ'scame on, we left
our stuff with friends and moved closer to the stage.
Those guys put on one hell of a show, especially
the bass player, who spent the entire performance
in a very warm bunny suit.
this was about the time when the idiots started
to come out. Moshers were elbowing each other in
the pit while crowd surfers were being tossed in the
air like juggling pins.
But that wasn't half as bad as the F.ve 6 crowd.
The drunks had broken down the netting in the
beer garden and were running wild in the crowd.
One guy even climbed up the scaffolding that held
the speakers and then jumped on some poor saps
in the audience.
Plastic beer and soda bottles constantly flew at
the performers on stage, and we ended up moving
to the side when Melyssa and I were kicked in the

head by falling crowd surfers.
People continually surfed right into the moat
between the crowd-arrtfthe stage;where theywotild be
caught and pointed, or in some cases dragged, out of
the forbidden zone. One girl had her shirt ripped off
and walked by us in tears, covering her chest with a
rag. And the band played on.
When Eve 6 left the stage, we skipped over to the
autograph-writing zone to see if they'd make good on
the "sure" Tony had given me in his brief but telling
e-mail. I managed to talk to John Siebels, the sweet
guitar player who told me he'd like to hang out with us
and that he'd ask. He never came back.
While we waited for his response, we observed the
redheaded singer, Max Collins, sticking his hand down
his pants while he talked on his cell phone for an hour.
Periodically he'd put his phone down to smile and
sign autographs for fawning, buxom high school girls.
But when we approached him, not only did he not
take our request seriously, but he very obviously blew
us off. Simply put, in case anybody was wondering,
Max Collins is a jerk.
With Pays of the New playing a good set in the
background, we sat in the now abandoned booth
thai had been the 99X broadcasting area. Naturally,
everyone thought we were employees. Several people
thought we were a lost and found. One guy complained
because he couldn't get a refund on his "X bucks and
no amount of shoulder shrugging on our part would
make him go away.
Meanwhile, some shirtless moron drew a crowd
when he showed up with blood pouring out a new
hole in his head, a feat of which he SftraM to
be very proud. Obviously underage students were
throwing beer at each other, crowd surfers were still
flying through the air, and the trash on the ground
now outnumbered the blades of brown grass.
though we were a little insulted by Max the
jerk's behavior, we piled into Melyssa's little car and
headed home in heavy X-Fest traffic. Melyssa had
not gone to the bathroom all day, so by now her
bladder was ready to explode. Unfortunately we
were trapped in a slow-moving line of cars with no
shoulders or side streets, so we played a fun game of
Chinese fire drill and she ran into the woods.
Some guy in a truck next to us yelled, "Hey,
Chinese fire drill! Oh no, she has to pee
But don't worry, we didn't leave her there. I
pulled into a side road and she came booking it
down the highway in a much happier mood.
When we got home we had tomato-red shoul-
ders, unidentifiable black gunk in our noses and
our eyes, and hair that felt like brilio pads. But
the important thing is, we saw the bands, we ate
lunch, and for what it's worth, we did meet Eve 6.
Mission accomplished.

Poet Fay, screenwriter Siegel

Earline White
FEATURES WRITER
As part of the Writers Reading Series, Julie Fay, a
poet, and Robert Siegel, a playwright and screenwriter,
will be reading from their works at 7 p.m. Oct. 4 at the
Greenville Museum of Art.
Fay has written three poetry collections. Her most
recent piece is "The Woman Behind You She has
published fiction, translations and essays. Fay is the
founder and co-director of the Writers Reading Series.
Siegel's plays "Overlooking the Park" and "Night
Into Winter" have been presented in New York at the
Ensemble Studio Theatre, Swear Allegiance at the Perry
Street 'theatre and Wild Mushrooms at Lincoln Center.
Siegel has also written two screenplays and is the
recipient of the White Bird Theater Award.
Julie Fay
TEC: What were your reasons for writing poetry?
Fay: When I was about 13,1 began writing poetry
as a way of understanding my emotions and like
most adolescents, 1 had plenty of internal conflicts
and external ones with the world around me-that if
not resolved were at least understood, when I wrote
about them.
Now I write for the same reasons, but I'm also
interested in exploring terrains that I don't know
at all, getting into the minds of historical figures or
people in cultures other than my own. Last spring, for
example, I wrote about Kosovo and wondered what
a mother would feel like in the middle of what was
taking place there.
TEC: What is the major focus of your works?
Fay: I love nature. Landscape is an essential part
of my writing and almost always enters into the poem
I'm writing. I love love in all its forms and formulas
and explore its highs and lows in many poems. I'm
interested in writing about women's sensual and sexual
lives because it's been a taboo subject for so many
generations. And I'm interested in society especially
how the little person, the individual, survives all the
corruption.
TEC: Why should non-F.nglish majors attend the
Writers Reader Series?
Fay: Why do non-football players go to football
games? Why do non-musicians go to a concert? they're
entertaining!
TEC: Are there any words of wisdom that you'd
like to bestow on other poets?
Fay: Read everything you can get your hands on-
poetry, fiction, nonfiction, drama, science, news-fill
your brain. Allow yourself to emote; don't censor your
passion. Don't listen to your critics. Give yourself
permission to be who you are. Try to sound like
yourself. Allow yourself to fail persevere.
Robert Siegel
TEC: Who were your inspirations at the beginning
of your writing career?
Siegel: My early inspirations were Arthur Miller,
Tennessee Williams, Eugene O'Neill, Edward Albee
and Ibsen.

105-108: Me, Myself, and Irene (Rated R)
Charlie is a Rhode Island state trooper with a split personality. He is
otherwise mild-mannered and non-confrontational until somebody or
something pushes him a little too far. That's when his maniacal alter-
ego, Hank, takes over. Charlie is assigned on a routine mission to
return alleged fugitive Irene back to upstate New York, but they wind
up on the run from corrupt police officers. And their escape would be
a lot simpler on everybody involved if Hank didn't keep stepping in at
the most inopportune times

105-108: All About My Mother (Rated R)
The night a car ran over her son Esteban, Manuela cried until her
eyes ran completely dry, the present and the future becoming mixed
up in darkness. That same night, while waiting in the hospital, she
reads the last lines written by her son in a notebook that he always
kept by his side. "This morning I looked through my mother's
bedroom until I found a stack of photographs. All of them were cut in
half. My father I suppose. I have the impression that my life is missing
that same half. I want to meet him, I don't care who he is, or how he
treated my mother. No one can take that right away from me
Manuela leaves Madrid and goes to Barcelona in search of Esteban's
father. She wants to tell him that their son's last written words were
directed towards him, even though he never knew his father. But first
she has to tell him that, when she abandoned him eighteen years ago,
she was pregnant, they had a son, and he just died.

How the
West was won
The AL West and
the American League
Wild Card came down
to the final day of
the season Sunday, as
the Oakland A's, Seat-
tle Mariners and Cleve-
land Indians found
themselves fighting for
two playoff spots.
With a 3-0 win over
Texas in Oakland, the A's clinched the
AL West title and set up a first round
date with the two-time defending World
Champs, the New York Yankees.
Meanwhile the Mariners got clutch
homers from Alex Rodriguez and David
Bell to clinch the AL Wild Card and a shot
at the AL Central champs, the Chicago
White Sox.
In Cleveland, despite an 11 -4 thump-
ing of the Blue Jays, the Indians will sit out
the postseason.
Pink slip parade
The 2000 baseball season ended
Sunday and while some teams celebrated
post-season berths, other looked to go
in a new direction. In otherwords, some
managers got the axe. The Phillies' Terry
Francona got the boot after a dissapoint-
ing season. Devils Rays' manager, Larry
Rothschild couldn't make the team a
winner after the owners loaded up on
free agent talent before the season, thus
Rothschild got canned.
After a playoff berth in 1999 and
the addition of Ken Griffey )r before
the season. Reds' manager Jack McKeon
couldn't get the Reds' off the ground in
2000; so McKeon found himself out of a
job this weekend as well.

Cinta Clam
ECU Volleyball
The F.CU volleyball team won their 10th game
of the season eclipsing last seasons win total by one.
The win over JMU was only the fourth time in 26
tries against the Dukes and only the second time in
four years for the seniors.
"Heating James Madison our senior year was like
the icing on the cake said middle hitter Sarah
Kary. "While it's still
early on in the season
this win will give us the
momentum to cary us
through the rest of the
year
The match was
closely contested
through out, with ECU
rarely leading by more
then three points
during the first two
games which they
won, 15-10 and 15-13.
In the third game the I'irates started off fast
building a 5-1 lead but were unable to capitalize
on their fast start as JMU stormed back tying the
game at 7-7 taking control of the tempo and going
on a 6-2 run. The Pirates battled back in the game
but were un-able to come from behind eventually
losing.
"We just coasted in that game, we had a seven
point lead and expected them to just roll over
said outside hitter Cinta Claro. "I was really proud
about how we came out. We used to let them beat
us but this is a new team
The Pirates were able to secure a victory in the
fourth game, again starting with an early lead but
that time not allowing a come back.

early in the first two games" said Head Coach Colleen
Farrell. "They (JMU) took the tempo away in the third
game but we were able to get it back, after a long fourth
game and put it away
The fourth game was a battle of attrition for the
Pirates who saw 17 straight side outs while ECU sat on
the game point, 14-8.
"1 feel so great, words can't describe my emotions

this was all I was thinking about JMU, JMU. This
victory meant so much to the seniors because we

The Pirates are not done with the Dukes this
season. An away match at JMU looms later in the
season, and the players will have to gear up again.
"This feels great but we see them again said

that's when I'll feel like we were victorious against

Lady Pirates fall to ODU, shut out Radford
Women remain
winless in CM play
W. S. Childress
STAFF WRITER
The Lady Pirates were thoroughly handled by Old
Dominion's Lady Monarchs last Wednesday, getting
outshot 14-7 in their 3-1 loss. The loss to ODU kept
ECU winless in CAA play at 0-2.
Forward Melanie McGowen of the Lady Monarchs
scored fifteen minutes into the game to give ODU a
1-0 lead. In the 31st minute, ODU forward Jen Henley
scored before halftime to give the Monarchs a 2-0 lead,
outshooting the Lady Pirates 6-4 in the first half.
ECU battled back in the second half, with senior
Kim Sandhoff leading the way. Sandhoff found junior
Kelly Gray on a corner kick and was able to get the
ball in the goal, her fifth of the season. The assist was
Sandhoff's ninth of the season, setting a new ECU
all-time assist record. Sandhoff set the previous record
of seven last season.
ECU'S defense performed admirably throughout the
second half, but was unable to keep ODU from scoring
"We needed lo get more done on offense, so we
came out attacking and it paid off We played our
game and we won
Kelly Gray
Junior, FCU Soccer
again. In the 83rd minute, ODU's Anna Gruzalski put
away a tree kick and the game to make the score 3-1.
"I thought we had a poor first half but played
much better in the second half said Head Coach Rob
Donnenwirth. "We were able to put some pressure on
them but they fought it off and deserved the victory
After playing seven games in 14 days, the Lady
Pirates got a well-deserved three-day rest. Sunday
afternoon it paid off in a 3-0 shutout at home against
the Radford Highlanders.
Gray wasted no time getting ECU on the board,
scoring at the 4:53 mark of the game. ECU threatened
to score more goals in the first half, but Radford
goalkeeper Samantha Woods pulled out a heroic effort
with seven first half saves, keeping Radford in the game
with a 1-0 deficit at the half.
ECU kept the pressure high during the second
half. Gray scored her second goal with an assist from
Sandhoff, giving the Lady Pirates a 2-0 lead. Then, at
the 70th minute of the game, Gray scored again, this
time on ECU'S first penalty kick of the season. That
was Gray's fifth goal in four games and the first hat
trick of her career.
"We needed to get more done on offense, so we
came out attacking and it paid off Gray said. "We
played our game and we won
"Our defense performed very well today Sandhoff
said. "Leigh (Stelgerwaldj and Brook Crewsl both
defended the goal well today and let the offense lead
the game
The 3-0 shutout was ECU's 6th shutout in 13
games. Sophomore Brook Crews and freshman Leigh
Steigerwald, goalkeepers for the Lady Pirates, combined
their talents for the shutout. ECU out shot Radford
16-3, including 7-0 in the second half. The Lady Pirates
are now 7-4-2.
ECU returns to conference play at 2 p.m. on Friday,
Oct. 6 when they host William & Mary.

Pirate Notes
Griffin to be
out for a month
Pirate linebacker and defensive leader, Pernell
Griffin suffered a strained knee in ECU'S win
over Syracuse a week ago. Griffin, a preseason All-
Conference selection, is expected to miss three
to four weeks.
"He's in rehab, that's going to be three or four
weeks said Head Coach Steve Logan. "He's not
out at practice at all
Griffin, last season's leading tackier, was leading
the Pirates in that category again this season with
50 stops, 19 unassisted.
The loss creates a hole in the Pirate defense
that the Pirates other inside linebackers will have
to fill.
"Us other guys have got to pick it up said
inside linebacker, Christshawn Gilliam. "We've just
got to play harder and become men
Enter Vonta Leach
The injury to PemeU Griffin will create a spot
in the defense for highly regarded true freshman,
Vonta Leach. Leach was heavily recruited after
playing at South Robeson High School and was going
to be redshirted this season. Now With the injury to
Griffin, l.each will likely see more game action.
"It doesn't change defense said head Coach
Steve Logan. "We're just going to have to introduce
Vonta I.each to playing. There'll be experience fall-of
obviously, but Vonta can play the game. It's not going
to set us back. He's just going to have to step up in
a hurry
Off week helpful
With two weeks between the home game with
Syracuse and the road test at Memphis, the Pirates used
their off week for a number of purposes.
First, the week off gave the team extra days to heal
some nagging injuries.
"It's nice now because we've got a lot of guys injured
and it gives them time to recover said inside linebacker
Christshawn Gilliam. "Ifs a big deal for us
The I'irates also used the extra practices to work
on problems the coaches spotted in their first four
games.
"A lot of special teams said Head Coach Steve
Logan. "We've been going a lot of good on good with
offense and defense. We've been working special teams
very hard
"We've been working on getting the wrinkle
on offense, defense and special teams said
receiver and kick returner, Keith Sto:

get this. X: Drive, the world's
first free Internet hard drive on
the desktop. You'll get the kind
of power you can always use.
Anywhere, anytime access from any Web ready computer.
Let's say you've got a private enterprise (like a term
paper, essay, or resume) and you don't want anybody
ripping off your intellectual property. Relax. X:Drive files
are password-protected. Even If you're mooching off your
roommate's computer. Or, let's say you're doing a group
project and feel like sharing. Think how much easier it'll
be if everyone on the team has access to the same files,
notes, and timetables. No matter where they are on cam-
pus (or the planet).
More good news. X:Drive gives you 25 megs of
space free (that's about the same as the 17 virus-infected
floppies you won't have to schlep around anymore).
Which brings up another nifty feature. X:Drive has this
cool Skip the Download� technology. It lets you grab
MP3s, video, and groovy pics from the Web in seconds
while you keep surfing.
