The Greenville Police
Department (GPD)
recently arrested a Green-
ville man charged with
Police nab Greenville grabber
four counts of Assault on
a Female after an ongo-
ing investigation of inci-
dences occurring near the
university over the past
three months.
Shelton Edward
Thomas, 22, is charged
with allegedly approach-
ing victims between the
hours of 8 p.m. and 2
p.m. from Aug. 13 to
Sept. 5 of this year. Two
reports claim the non-
student reached out of
the window of a white
Ford truck and grabbed
the victims as they walked
by him.
During one assault,
Thomas allegedly grabbed
a female by her bookbag
and dragged her a few feet
down the street. Two other
reports allege Thomas
grabbed the victims as
he approached them. All
incidences occurred in the
area of 1st and 5th streets
near campus.
Police are confident
they have apprehended
the right suspect, espe-
cially since no more
assaults of this nature
have been reported since
his arrest.
"Thomas has made
confessions to all four of
the incidences and we feel
confident that this is the
right man Clark said.
The GPD continues to
encourage individuals to
use common sense and
stay in large groups when
walking at night.
"Even walking in twos
isn't a good idea said
Det. Amy Clark. "To walk
in groups of three or four
people instead of by your-
self is the smartest thing
to do
The Oct. 25 arrest is
the result of a surveillance
operation conducted by
the GPD. Anyone with
additional information
should contact the GPD
at 329-4300 or Det. Amy
Clark at 329-4133.

Two shootings took
place downtown on the
morning of Saturday, Oct.
A man was shot in the
leg at 12:15 a.m. outside
the Sports Pad complex
while waiting to enter the
nightclub after a dispute
occurred between two
drivers on the corner of
5th and Evans streets. The
victim, Matthew Hartens-
tein, an 18-year-old stu-
dent at Coastal Commu-
nity College, was shot in
the leg by an unidentified
According to Capt.
Kevin Smeltzer, of the
administrative bureau
of the Greenville Police
Department (GPD),
Hartenstein heard a dis-
pute in line behind him
and a gunshot. He did not
realize immediately that
he was wounded.
"The bystander had
never been in this club
before said a Sports Pad
representative. "We did,
however bring him in and

Police are continuing
their investigation and

He is described as a black
male, 5-foot-8-inches, 179
pounds, with a slender

blue jeans and a white
shirt. The suspect was last
seen running from the
area. Police said there are
no other suspects at this
"There is one suspect
that is out there that we

Police have recovered
one brass bullet casing
from the scene of the
crime. It is determined
that the casing was shot
from a black semi-auto-
matic gun, however, the

One student who was
across the street in Boli's
5th Street Pizzaria said
the police were quick to
respond to the scene of
the crime.
"TheGreenville Police
(GPD) was so quick in
their response to the inci-
dent said junior Chris
Ritter. "They did such a
good job that it makes
me feel safer around the
downtown area, especially
with Halloween here
Meanwhile, an unre-
lated shooting occurred
around the same time in
front of the Stop Shop,
at the corner of 5th and
Cotanche streets.
According to Stop
Shop employee Brent
Roseman, the altercation
left no one injured, and
Alcohol and Law Enforce-
ment (ALE) officers took
longer than expected to
arrive at the scene.
"Two guys looked like
they not in a fight and one
put a gun to the other's
head Roseman said. "He
then took the gun away
and proceeded to run.
The guy fired one shot
as he was running and
police responded to this
shooting about 30 min-
utes later
ALE officers appre-
hended the suspect, Lean-
der "Divine" Simmons,
20, of Kinston, N.C. in
a parking lot behind the
Sports Pad complex. He
was arrested on charges
of Discharging a Firearm,
Assaulting a Government
Official and Assault by
Pointing a Firearm.
Anyone with informa-
tion regarding these inci-
dences should contact the
GPD at 830-3937.
Greenville prepares for Halloween
promote safety
Laura Benedict
ECU and the Green-
ville community have
made preparations for
tonight's Halloween fes-
Every year for the
past seven years, Uni-
versity Housing Services
(UHS) ensures that all stu-
dents entering residence
halls are accounted for by
police and resident advis-
"Our big thing was this
weekend said Manny
Amaro, director of UHS.
"We alerted all students
that Friday and Saturday
only guests of the same
gender were allowed to
stay with them. All doors
to the residence halls were
pinned except for the
main entrance and an offi-
cer was stationed there
UHS's policies will also
be in effect tonight. UHS
encourages students to
carry their ECU One Cards
with them at all times.
"Everything is pretty
much under control as
long as everyone plays it
safe Amaro said.
The ECU Police
Department (ECUPD) is
gearing up for Halloween
as well. All officers off-
duty that morning will be
on-hand for the evening.
"A certain number of
officers are allocated for
downtown Crocker said.
"Six or eight officers are
assigned to assist the GPD
in downtown. The rest are
scheduled and assigned
throughout campus
"We probably have
around 135 officers
assigned to downtown
from Greenville and the
surrounding areas said
Melissa Bartlett, public
affairs coordinator for the
Greenville Police Depart-
ment (GPD). "It's real
important that people
understand that it's not
a show of force to intim-
idate, it's to maintain
safety so things don't get
out of hand.
"An estimated 85 uni-
formed officers will be in
the crowd, four to five on
rooftops, 20 at perimeter
posts and that's the four
block area on the edges (of
the downtown barricaded
area Bartlett said.
Police officers sta-
tioned at perimeter posts
will be checking IDs, cool-
ers and backpacks for
weapons and alcohol.
"We tell them to leave
it with the officer at the
perimeter and pick it up
later said Bartlett. "No
weapons are allowed even
if it is part of a costume.
If someone dresses up as a
cowboy, this includes cap
guns or plastic swords
In December 1999 new
laws regarding underage
drinking were passed. In
the past 19-20 year olds
who consumed beer or
wine were only charged
with an infraction, a non-
criminal penalty. As a
result of the new law
19-20 year olds will be
charged with a Class 3
"A Class 3 misde-
meanor goes on an indi-
vidual's record for the rest
of their life Bartlett said.
"So when this person is
30 and is trying to get a
job, it will show up on a
background check
A person convicted of
selling or providing alco-
hol to a minor would
receive no less than a $250
fine and 25 hours of com-
munity service. Bartlett
warned that there will be
undercover officers down-
town tonight.
"Undercover officers
from ALE and ABC will
possibly be in costume to
watch for alcohol viola-
tions and other violations
in the crowd Bartlett
Downtown area res-
taurants and taverns have
formed a community
action group called DARK
to work in conjunction
with police to ensure a
safe celebration.
Businesses will sell and
serve alcohol in plastic
cups so that no glass con-
tainers will be broken and
cause injures. They are
attempting to keep alco-
hol inside the building
where it is purchased by
placing staff at the door.
"No alcohol can be

The facts on binge drinking
Students warned of
dangers of high alcoholic
Nancy Kuck
Binge drinking has become a
widespread problem on most col-
lege campuses, a problem that not
only affects academics, but also
carries serious risks of disease, injury
and death. This style of drinking
is not dlsaissed frequently because
the definition of binge drinking is
vague and differs for each student.
According to the Core Institute's
1999 statistics on alcohol and other
drug use on American campuses,
binge drinking is defined as "five
or more drinks in one sitting
Although this definition takes into
account the quantity of alcohol
beverages, it fails to take in account
the gender, body mass index and
length of time for each sitting when
alcohol is consumed. The quicker
a person drinks, the higher the
blood alcohol level is and the more
problems the person will have.
"The most serious problems
with drinking occurs within the
first week of school said Associate
Dean of Students Mary L. Antieau.
"Most students are sent to us when
an alcoholic violation occurs such
as drunk driving, possession of
alcohol on campus outside of the
residence halls or underage, or
if they are caught getting sick or
passed out to the extent that they
may hurt themselves or others
The results from alcohol related
offenses range from counseling
and attending a workshop at the
Center of Counseling and Student
lvelopment (CCSD) to suspension
from the university. The severity
of the consequences is established
by the seriousness of the alcohol
"Binge drinking to me is drink-
ing in excess every weekend and
not remembering what happened
said senior Todd Moron. "My old
roommate used to binge drink every
weekend but he seemed to be OK
with it and it was not to the point
that he was hospitalized
A 12-ounce beer, a 4-ounce glass
of wine, a 10-ounce wine cooler
and a shot (1 ounce) of liquor all
have the same amount of alcohol.
When a person drinks, there is an
increased risk of alcohol related
injuries or death, legal problems
drunk-driving, assault, unplanned
pregnancy, transmission of an STD,
including HIV and acquaintance
rape. Alcohol poisoning may also
occur which can cause death if not
hospitalized immediately.
"I think binge drinking to me
is excessively drinking to the point
where people get sick said junior
Mandy Israel. "It is dangerous and
I think there is going to be a lot of
it this Halloween
"I see people that are both
judicially referred and those that
want to stop or cut down on their
drinking said Robert Morphett,
Center for CSOC. "As far as 1 know,
there has not been any deaths that
occurred at ECU in recent history
from alcohol use. Unfortunately,
we have had many students that
were hospitalized from too much
alcohol usage
The reported drinking behaviors
of ECU students are consistent with
those of other college students
who completed a CORE Alcohol
and Drug Survey in 1999. Over 65
percent of adults consume alcohol
and of this percentage, there are
some who are addictive drinkers or
alcoholics. College students who
drink more alcohol have a more
liberal definition of binge drinking
than those who drink less.
Frequent binge drinking can
lead to long-term problems with
alcohol. Consider the consequences
and take your drinks in modera-
"Be thoughtful and watch how
much you drink because it can be
scary if you consume too much
Antieau said.

Symptoms of
alcohol poisoning
1. Person is unconscious or
semi-conscious and can not be
2. Cold, clammy, pale or
bluish skin.
3. Check to see if breathing
is slow, less than eight times
per minute, or irregular, with
10 seconds or more between
4. Vomiting while sleeping
or passed out, and not waking
up after vomiting.
If a person has any of these
symptoms, he or she is suffering
from acute alcohol intoxication
and help should be called for.

ALE arrests 173 individuals over weekend
Students, local business
in violation of underage
drinking laws
Melyssa Ojeda
Sixteen Alcohol and Law
Enforcement (ALE) agents, with
the assistance of the Greenville
Police Department (GPD), cracked
down on underage drinking laws
in lieu of Halloween in and around
Greenville Friday and Saturday.
A total of 173 individuals were
arrested and 204 criminal charges
were given.
According to ALE District Two
Supervisor John Simmons, most of
the arrests occurred at parties in
neighborhoods around downtown
earlier on both evenings.
"Prior to 11 p.m we arrested
more individuals outside the down-
town area, but as the night pro-
gressed we made more arrests down-
town Simmons said.
The most common charges were
for Resisting, Obstructing, and
Delaying a Police Officer and Posses-
sion of a Malt Beverage or Unfor-
tified Wine by a Person Under
the Age of 21. There was at least
one charge of an Assault on an
Officer with a Firearm, as well as
several misdemeanor narcotics
violations-one for possession of
Ecstasy, the rest for the possession
of marijuana.
Five Greenville businesses were
cited with the Sale of a Malt Bever-
age or Unfortified Wine to Persons
Under 21. These businesses include
the Food I.ion grocery store on 10th
Street; the Landmark grocery store
on 5th Street; The Texas Two-Step
club, where an undercover ALE
agent gave the citation; and the
Stop Shop at the corner of 5th
and Cotanche streets, which was
cited twice for selling alcohol to
persons under the age of 21. The
fifth business's name was unavail-
able due to a pending investiga-
According to Simmons, in all of
these businesses, agents in uniform
were able to observe employees
breaking the law out in the open.
"The citations that were given
occurred after blatant observation
Simmons said.
ALE is responsible for nine
counties and approximately 1,500
licensed businesses.
Last Halloween, 195 persons
were arrested on over 200 charges.
In 1998, 333 persons were arrested
on 302 charges.
Simmons added that total arrest
and citation figures for this year's
Halloween remained to be seen
since tonight is when the major
event will occur downtown.
"Things are going much as we
expected and we will be in force
in and around the Greenville area
today as well Simmons said.
Simmons added that this aggres-
sive enforcement by ALL and GPD
personnel is merely aimed at pro-
tecting citizens.
"We're just interested In safe-
guarding people Simmons said.
"We're trying to save lives and
protect the students and the city
of Greenville

than 20, according to Crocker.
"We haven't had as many prob-

"Everyone who is drinking
should keep their alcohol in their
hand and be careful and mindful
of date rape drugs Crocker said.
"Walk in pairs with people that you
know. And if you see something
suspicious, call or use on of the

Laws concerning underage drin
The North Carolina General
Assembly passed two new laws
concerning underage drinking
that went into effect in December
A person convicted for the
first time of selling or providing
alcohol to someone under the age
of 21 would receive a sentence of
no less than a $250 fine and 25
hours of community service. For
a second or subsequent offense
within four years, the penalty is
no less than a $500 fine and 150
hours of community service.
A person convicted of aiding
and abetting in the sale or provision
of alcohol to someone under the
age of 21 for the first time would
receive a penalty of no less than
�a 1500 fine and 25 hours of com-
munity service. For a second or
subsequent offense within four
years, the sentence is no less than a
$1000 fine and 150 hours of com-
munity service.
The law G.S. 18B-302 punished
19 and 20 year olds who are con-
victed of the possession of beer or
wine with an infraction, a non-
criminal penalty that carries a $25
fine. Any alcohol consumption by
those 18 and younger, and under-
age drinkers of any ago
liquor or fortified wins
1 misdemeanor.
An amendment to this law
now calls for 19 and 20 year olds
who drink beer or wine to be
charged with a Class 3 misde-
meanor. These individuals will
"face a $200 fine if convicted.

112-115: Scary Movie (Rated R)
Six Friends, including Cindy Campbell (Anna Faris), Buffy Gellar
(Shannon Elizabeth), Brenda (Regina Hall), and Greg (Lochlyn
Munro), are being stalked by a serial killer that is a mix between Ghost
Face of Scream and Ben Willis of Know What You Did Last Summer
that wants them dead for a car accident that happened last
Halloween. The friends are also being stalked by a pesky reporter
Gail Hailstorm (Cheri Oteri). The body count begins when Drew
Decker (Carmen Electra) is murdered. Funny-man director Keenan
Ivory Wayans brings an ensemble cast together in this comedic horror
genre spoof. No horror film standard or cliche is safe in this parody of
horror movies.
Mercury Cinema
111 -115: Time Code (Rated R)
Time Code is an original, innovative film shot in real time and in one
continuous take. It is a timely reference to our voyeuristic approach to
entertainment. Beyond the remarkable style with which it was made,
Time Code also offers an intriguing plot involving four interrelated,
parallel stories of adultery, all which take place on Sunset Boulevard,
in Los Angeles, beginning at 3 p.m. on November 19,1999. It even
includes an unplanned earthquake. Time Code is certain to be one of
the most provocative, unique films you will see this year.

Every Halloween,
kids wake up
to find out that a
little part of them
has been smashed
to bits, because
someone was mali-
ciously bored.
Last night at TEC, we received a fax from a 9-year-old girl named Erika
Eagle. She told us in her letter that someone had stolen her family's pumpkins,
and wanted to know why someone would do such a terrible thing.
To tell you the truth, we don't know.
Who can say why there are people in this world that get pleasure from
the pain of others, and who feel that to improve their day, they have to
ruin someone else's. These are the same stupid people that we have to
lock our doors from, and the reason we have to be careful of walking
alone at night.
Whoever you are, you sicken us. You hurt people, and write it off as
a harmless gag. You made Erika's little brother cry, and because of you,
Halloween isn't ever going to be the same for them.
Erika's letter broke our hearts, because we know what it is like to have
something ruined for us by "mean people Every Halloween, kids like Erika
wake up to find out that a little part of them has been smashed to bits,
because someone was maliciously bored.
To the kids who have lost their pumpkins this year, we are truly sorry for
your pain. Instead of letting whoever these thieves are ruin your special day,
try and keep what you've lost in your hearts and in your heads, where no
one else can take it from you.
Remember ECU students, it's okay to go out and party tonight dressing
up as French maids, toast-heads and the character from Scream, but don't
embarass yourselves, your community or your university in front of innocents
like Erika and her little brother through vandalism, indecent exposure and
other acts of delinquency.
Mean people just plain suck, so don't be a mean person. Help us at
TEC try to make Halloween activities fun and safe for everyone, pumpkins

Bush not fit for job at hand
Peace in the Middle East will never happen
(U-WIRE)-After 2000 years of being
in exile, a people, ripped and nearly
extinct by the most evil of powers,
finally found peace in a land they
could call their own. Not only their
own, but open to all who wished
to be free. All they desired was
acceptance as a nation, race, creed,
ethnic group and religion.
The area in 1947 known as Pal-
estine provided a tangible place
for that hope. Two years after the
Allies liberated the surviving Jewish
refugee in the concentration camps
of the Holocaust, Great Britain
controlled the area of the world
then known as Palestine.
The British decided to divide
that imperialistic holding into two
halves, Palestine-which included
the Old City of Jerusalem, the West
Bank and the Gaza strip-and a
section for the Jewish refugees who
declared it the State of Israel in May
1948. That section included the
western seaboard, where Tel Aviv is
located, and the Negev Desert.
Shortly after David Ben-Gurion,
the first prime minister of Israel,
announced the birth of the sov-
ereign State of Israel, armies of
Syria, Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt
attacked the small country in hopes
of destroying it.
After a long, difficult war with
these countries, Israel, a country
less than a year old with no formal
military and no funding or support
from any other place in the world,
defeated its opponents.
In 1967, the same armies
attacked Israel again and lost within
six days. In that loss, Israel acquired
the lands in the West Bank includ-
ing the Old City of Jerusalem, the
Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights and
the Sinai Desert. When able to
occupy and become one with the
holiest city on Earth again, Israel
was complete.
In the early 1970s on the holi-
day of Yom Kippur, the holiest
holiday for the Jewish people, the
same Arab armies attacked again in
hopes of obliterating the nation of
Israel and again, after much blood
shed, Israel won.
In the late 1970s, Menachem
Begin, Anwar Sadat and President
Jimmy Carter met and created a
peace between Israel and Egypt.
Israel returned the Sinai Desert as a
sign of goodwill. Peace has lasted.
Throughout this period of 52
years, a fairly large population of
Arab peoples has occupied Israel.
These people, who are mostly
Muslim, are what we know as Pal-
estinians. These are people who
were in the former Palestine, who
are not Jewish and do not wish to
be part of the recognized State of
In Israel, these people live in
conditions better than any other
Arab country, save maybe Kuwait,
they have religious freedom and
they can be citizens and members
of the government if they choose.
They live in neighborhoods with
such simple luxuries as internal
plumbing and sewers, while many
of their Arab cousins in neighboring
countries do not.
When Israel was made into its
own country, these people were
welcomed with open arms into the
population by the Jewish majority.
They refused. When the surround-
ing Arab nations attacked, Israel
protected them.
When they sought acceptance
into Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Saudi
Arabia and Egypt rather than live
under a Jewish majority govern-
ment, those countries refused to
let in their own countrymen and
cousins. But Israel still accepted
Now, peace talks are halted by
terrorism and unnecessary violence.
Two soldiers took a wrong turn
into a Palestinian neighborhood
and paid for the mistake with their
lives, their bodies desecrated. A
country that has for years wanted
a peaceful co-existence is not going
to have that because peaceful co-
existence was and never will be an
option for the Palestinians.
I'm not an advocate of using
unnecessary military force to keep
the peace, but I am not an advocate
of terrorism.
The Palestinians, like most of
the Arab nations surrounding Israel,
want and have wanted only one
thing- the destruction of the State
of Israel.
What stops another full-blown
war? Israel has the best and most
powerful army in the world next
to the United States. Why does the
United States not support Israel the
way it should? Because of a minor,
valuable commodity drilled in
those surrounding Arab countries.
The intention of the Israelis has
always been one of keeping the
basic right that we hold dear in
America, while trying to co-exist
with its neighbors and Palestinian
citizens. Palestinians refuse to
recognize Israel and the Jewish
people's right to live there. There-
fore, peace can never truly happen.
The two major candidates run-
ning for the presidential election
this year have made it quite clear
that there are some major differ-
ences between them.
They have both stated how they
view the country and how they will
improve every aspect of politics
while their opponent will only
make things worse while having
minimal positive effects. Well, we
all know this is not true.
The fact is, the candidates will
say just about anything to get
elected. Let's analyze the real differ-
ences and the real truth behind all
of this talk of one candidate.
Some things always come into
play when talking about George W.
Bush. Would he be running today
if it wasn't for his dad? Does he
have any real experience? Does he
even know what he's doing? Other
than smoking crack, what was he
up to before he became governor?
How much does he know about
foreign policy?
He didn't seem to know much
during his first debate. Did he really
have to prep that much for the last
two debates to sound like he knew
Furthermore, George W. Bush
seems to be making some state-
ments that are not true. He told
us during one of the debates that
those responsible for the death of
an African-American by dragging
were going to be put to death. He
wasn't entirely right. One of the
individuals responsible did not
receive the death penalty.
It's hard to believe that he
wasn't aware of this fact, being
that he is the governor of the state
and this case has received a high
amount of publicity. Then, he's
taking credit for bills which he
vetoed and were overruled by the
state of Texas. He really isn't making
much sense.
One of the things that the gov-
ernor stands for is huge tax breaks,
especially for the wealthy. He says
that all Americans are the right
people for tax relief. Well, that
might sound good at first, especially
to the rich, but when you really
think about it, is it true?
Let's take an example of two
American citizens. One, who is
working very hard, maybe two or
three jobs, just to make ends meet,
to provide for his or her family.
Another person is one who has a
seven-digit salary and is financially
well off. Now, who is the right
person for tax relief? Are you telling
me that both people should receive
the same amount of tax credit?
And since the amount of tax
relief you will receive is by the
percentage you pay, the poor citizen
might get about $250 worth of tax
credit while the rich might get some
where in the millions. Now tell me,
out of that $1 trillion, where is all
of the tax relief going?
Another frightening fact is that
the money that the governor has
promised us hasn't really been
collected yet, it is just the projected
United States income. Now what
would happen if we were to come
short on collecting that income?
All of the money has gone in
tax breaks to the wealthy, where
will the cuts come from? Social
security, Medicare? The only thing
that Bush stands for is what his dad
stood for, what every republican
stands for, irresponsible tax breaks
for the rich and at the same time,
hurting the economy.

Cary, N.C.
CHAMPAIGN, 111. (U. Illinois)-
Boo! Ah, don't be scared. I'm just
getting into the Halloween spirit.
Indeed, Halloween is one of the
best times of the year. It's the one
day out of the year you can break
out of those khaki pants and into
plaid golfer's slacks. The social
norms that deal with what we wear
go soaring out the window. It's
But is it something deeper than
just some fun game of dress-up?
Could be. Freud once said, "Thou
art a fool who dreams of wolves in
sheep's clothing, all the while righty
is tighty and lefty is loosey
Actually, I'm not sure if he said
that exactly. My point here is that
Halloween might be the perfect
opportunity for us to dress up in
reflection of our inner selves.
That in mind, I thought we'd
take a look at some costumes and
figure out what they mean. That
way when you see your friends in
them on Halloween, you can laugh
at them because you know their
inner-most secrets:
� Alf: If you're dressing up as Alf,
then you have major issues. First
of all, you're longing for the days
when you were young. You'd dress
up as Mr. Wizard, but it'd be hard
to get your face that wrinkled.
Dressing up as Alf also means
that you have an unorthodox appe-
tite. Let's just say people had better
keep their cats hidden when Alf is
out trick-or-treating. And finally,
the Alf costume is a classic sign of
bad taste in television.
� Backstreet Boys (or other "boy
bands"): Whether you are going
as one of the Backstreet Boys or
you and your group of friends are
going as the entire band, I'd have
to say-find a new costume. That's
just sick. First of all, some of you
guys look way too much like them
already. I don't mean to go off on
a tangent here, but there's one guy
that I always see working out at the
gym with jeans, sunglasses and a
billowy shirt on.
� French maid: OK, I think we
know the answer to this one-you
love to clean.
� Pokemon: How the hell does
someone dress like Pokemon?
� Bill Clinton (as worn by a
Republican): You're jealous! You
don't go around dressed like Clin-
ton without somewhat enjoying
all the positive attention. If you
truly wanted to make a fool of the
president, the last thing you'd want
to do is be the life of the party. Oh,
but I can imagine all the jokes and
pick-up lines you'd be throwing
around. Shame on you. Republican.
That's the president's material. You
should be paying royalties.
� Bill Clinton (as worn by a
Democrat): You're ashamed yet
clamoring for any shred of positive
public opinion. Think about it.
You're not dressing up as Clinton to
honor him. You're dressing as him
so he can be laughed at: a positive
response. At this point, you'll offer
up the crudest of cigar jokes to get
at least a giggle. You'll do anything
to feel like you're not alone in
liking Clinton, won't you?
� Superman: You are a fantastic
person with great hair. I often
dressed as Superman.
� A soldier: Next to Superman,
this was my most frequently used
costume when I was young. What
does it say about the inner you?
I have no idea. It sounds a little
unhealthy, but I always liked the
idea that maybe people were giving
me candy because I scared them
into it.
After all, how could they feel
at ease with a 10-year-old in cam-
ouflage? I guess what I'm trying to
say is that it probably means you
have some kind of neurosis-fust
like me.
� Magnum PI: Wow, if you can
pull off the Tom Selleck look, that's
amazing. As far as what it means
subconsciously, it means that you
have a longing for a thick coat
of chest hair. But forget about
that; this is seriously an incredible
costume as long as it's pulled off
The pope: This doesn't mean
much subconsciously, but I can
tell you one thing for sure-it's all
about comfort for you! A robe for a
costume? That's against the rules.
You're supposed to at least want to
get out of your costume at the end
of the night.
I guess the bottom line is quite
simple: Halloween is a time for
costumes, candy and really mind-
less columns. Halloween is also
a time when you go to strangers'
doors and expect some kind of
Consider this column that gift.
No one ever said it had to be a good
gift. This is the popcorn ball among

Ticked into implement-

(AP)-F.lon College senior Emily
Reardon of Matthews did some-
thing unexpected toward the end
of her fall break last week.
She voted.
"This is my first presidential
election and I wasn't about to miss
it said Reardon, 21, who voted
mostly Republican in the N.C. early
voting system.
Contrary to conventional
wisdom, college students are as
likely to cast a ballot as the general
population, and twice as likely to
vote as their non-college peers,
studies show.
This year, with a tight presiden-
tial race and a $3.1 billion state col-
lege bond referendum at stake, N.C.
students have launched campus
voter registration drives, debates
and get-out-the-vote campaigns.
Some say they're more active than
in recent years.
"There were students here lined
up waiting to register to vote said
Chuck Lynch, University of North
Carolina-Charlotte vice chancellor
of student affairs. "I don't remem-
ber ever seeing this much interest
in an election
At University of North Carolina-

Because college students are less
likely to be affiliated with a party,
they are among the independent
voters that presidential candidates
George W. Bush and Al Gore are
in North Carolina, student sup-
port could also be key to passage of
the college bonds, to expand and
renovate the state's universities and
community colleges.
"I expect even more college
students than usual to vote this
year said David Warren, president
of National Association of Indepen-
dent Colleges and Universities.
"More colleges are making
efforts to get out the vote. And
students wondering whether their
vote will have an impact this year
can see from the polls that the
answer is "Yes, absolutely "
Since the 1960s, the percentage
of Americans ages 18 to 24 who
vote has been declining. In 1964,
more than half of young voters
turned out. In 1996, only a third
bothered to vote-by far the lowest
turnout of any age group.
"The problem is, only a minor-
ity of young voters are actually
college students, and the rest of
them don't vote said Charles
Prysby, a political science professor
at University of North Carolina-
Bush and Gore have tried to
catch the eye of young voters. Gore
has been on MTV and the cover
of "Rolling Stone" magazine. Both
candidates have traded zingers
on the late night talk shows, and
they're making speeches on college
Both campaigns have also dis-
patched young family members:
Bush's nephew George P. Bush,
serves as the national chairman of
Students for Bush-Cheney, while
Gore's eldest daughter, Karenna
Gore Schiff, heads Gorenet, a grass-
roots effort to sway young people.
But Alison Byrne Fields, spokes-
woman for the registration drive
Rock the Vote, said it will take more
than token appearances to sway
youthful voters, who in many cases
are disillusioned.
Candidates need to talk about
issues that interest young voters,
she said, and this year's Medicare,
Social Security and prescription
drugs are hardly appealing.
Still, Byrne Fields said she
expects many college students to
cast ballots. Their No. 1 issue is
education, she said-especially the
candidates' plans to make higher
education more affordable.
But there will always be stu-
dents like Josh Reigle, a 20-year-old
UNC-C student who just didn't get
around to registering.
"I'm busy. I have homework to
do, friends to go out with he said.
"I Just really don't think my vote
would matter that much

Students at University of
UNC-CH and North Carolina State

could register the most people.
UNC-CH won. North Carolina
A8rT sponsored a dance with free
admission to registered voters. And
UNC-C signed up more than 1,000
students in a two-day drive. The
school is running shuttles to early
voting locations.
The efforts appear to be work-
UNC-CH junior Matt Hamilton,
20, who voted for the first time this

Ladies and gentlemen,
your new No. 1
Ihe Sooners are back. For the first time in
13 years, Oklahoma is No. 1.
Following their 31-14 drubbing of
then-No. 1 Nebraska in Norman, the Okla-
homa Sooners staked their claim to the top
spot in college football.
The Sooners assumed the No. 1 ranking
in the AP Media Poll, the USA TodayESPN
Coaches Poll and the BCS Rankings, all of
which were released today.
The Sooners topped the Huskers thanks to
300 yards and a touchdown from quarterback
josh Heupel.
The 17-point loss marked the Huskers
largest losing margin since a 19-0 loss at the
hands 6f Arizona State in 1996.
Oklahoma sits ahead of No. 2 Virginia

According to
Virginia Tech, the
Heisman candidate will be "50-50" for the
Hokies matchup at No. 5 Miami Saturday.
Griese gets DUI
Denver Broncos quarterback Brian Griese
was charged with driving under the influence
Sunday. Griese was stopped outside Denver
doing 80 in a 65 mph zone. Griese then
failed a roadside sobriety test and was issued
the DUI.
Griese was the league's highest-rated passer
before inuring his shoulder in September.
Griese joins bnebaVkers Bill Romanowski
and John Mobley as well as receiver Rod
Smith as Broncos that have run into trouble
with the law this season.
Smith was arrested following a domestic
violence incident. Mobleygot a DUI of his
own earlier this year and Romonowski was

Stephen Schramm
Last season, an upset loss cost F.CU a shot at their
first ever C-USA football crown. Saturday, history
repeated itself as the Blazers stunned the favored Pirates
for the second straight year, 16-13.
For all intents and purposes, the loss drops the
Pirates out of the conference title picture and now
they find themselves needing help to secure one of the
conferences top bowl bids.
"It definitely throws a monkey wrench into our
plans said senior nose tackle Mbayo Ahmadu.
"Coming into this season our goal was to win the
conference and the way it's looking now, we're not
going to have that opportunity
In front of a sparse crowd of less than 29,000,
the Blazers played inspired football while the Pirate
offense sputtered.
"They took advantage of some red zone opportuni-
ties and we didn't said Head Coach Steve Logan.
"They kicked a field goal and we didn't. They're a good
football team, we're a good football team and they
won it. That's the way I look at it
The turnout, the lowest of the season, saw the
stands barely half full on the student side.
"I think we came out flat as a team said senior
defensive lineman Devonne Claybrooks. "There weren't
that many people out there. We didn't really have
the home field advantage. We didn't have the 40,000
people rocking the place like we usually do. That took
its toll on us
The offense put up 157 yards on the ground and
253 in the air, but failed to convert inside the 20-yard
"We had some mistakes on our part, but we were
playing pretty good said quarterback David Garrard.
"Once we got into the red zone we should have got
field goals, people should have caught passes and 1
should have made better throws. It all comes together
and it comes out to a loss
The F.CU defense, held the Blazers for much of
the day, limiting them to three field goals and one

Carruth lawyer: statement not true
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)�A statement that Rae
Carruth disliked his pregnant girlfriend so much he
wished her dead was false and its release was aimed
at influencing the jury in Carruth's murder trial, his
lawyer said Monday.
An ex-girlfriend of Carruth told police the former
Carolina Panthers player so strongly disliked Cherica
Adams that he wished for her death, The Charlotte
Observer and CNNSports Illustrated reported.
Candace Smith also told police in June that the
former Carolina Panthers player confided he had
seen Adams shot and left the scene worrying that he
would be implicated.
David Rudolf, Carruth's lawyer, said as he entered
the courthouse Monday for a second week of jury
selection that he doubted the woman's story.
"If she comes into court and testifies to that
under oath, she's lying Rudolf said. "That's if she
shows up
The lawyer also said the timing of the release of
the police report was suspect.
"Anyone who would look at it would be concerned
about it he said. "It's an attempt to influence the
rest of the jury pool
Smith also said Carruth told her in earlier conversa-
tions he should have someone "beat her up or kick her
in the stomach and make her have a miscarriage
The Observer reported that it had obtained a copy
of the 32-page transcript of Smith's interview with
police. CNNSI did not divulge the source on which
it based its report.
Carruth and three other men have been charged
with plotting Adams' murder. Prosecutors have accused
Carruth of masterminding the slaying because he
didn't want to pay child support.
Carruth, who could face the death penalty if
convicted, maintains his innocence.
Smith is expected to testify in Carruth's capital
murder trial.
Lead prosecutor Gentry Caudill said he would not
comment on the story, the content of the transcript or
the effect it might have on the trial.
Rudolf told the newspaper that Smith's account
differs from the first statement she gave to police
in November.
According to the published reports, Smith joined
Carruth at Carolinas Medical Center just after the
drive-by shooting as doctors struggled to keep Adams
and her baby alive. Adams, 24, died a month later, but
doctors saved the baby.

were and focused on shutting them
down. We were able to stop their

The win over VCU was the forth

The Pirates will be hosting

It includes local, state, national, and international stories with a focus on campus events.
