Alston suspended from rest of season
ECU back-up
quarterback faces
counterfeit, drug
charges
Melyssa Ojeda
EDITOR IN CHIEF
ECU back-up quarter-
back Richard Alston was
charged with obtaining
property by false pretense,
misdemeanor possession
of marijuana and posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia
Friday.
According to police
reports, Alston, 19,
attempted to pay for a $9
meal with a $100 coun-
terfeit bill at the Burger
King drive-thru on 10th
Street and Greenville Bou-
levard at 11:30 p.m. on
Thursday, Nov. 2.
The clerk, James Price,
realized the bill was coun-
terfeit and rejected it.
Alston then handed Price
a $20 bill and proceeded
to leave the area without
receiving his change,
at which time Price
notified the Greenville
Police Department (GPD)
and gave a description
of Alston's vehicle and
license plate number.
Officers investigated
until a search warrant
could be issued for Alston's
arrest.
At approximately 5:51
a.m. on Friday, Nov. 3,
officers arrested Alston
after finding marijuana
and drug paraphernalia
inside his apartment.
According to a report
from The Daily Reflector,
officers seized some com-
puter equipment as well.
Police reports from the
GPD said otherwise.
"No computer equip-
ment was noted in the
police report said Melissa
Bartlert, of media relations
at the GPD.
Alston, a sophomore,
has been officially sus-
pended from playing foot-
ball.
"The decision has been
made to suspend Richard
indefinitely from this
football team said Ath-
letics Director Mike Ham-
rick at a press conference
Monday. "His future with
this program will depend
upon the outcome of his
legal situation
Hamrick and football
Head Coach Steve Logan
would not comment fur-
ther on the incident, but
Hamrick said he hoped
Alston would continue
attending classes at the
university.
"We're in Richard's
corner, we're gonna try
and provide him with as
much help and support as
we can, but until he gets
his situation resolved he
will not play football for
ECU, however, our hope
is that he will continue
to practice with the team
and he will continue to be
a student at ECU
If Alston, an account-
ing major, is convicted of
counterfeiting, a federal
offense, the prospects for
his success in the field
of accounting look slim.
Sophomore back-up quarterback Richard Alston (1) was recruited by the Pirates in the spring of
1998. His recent arrest has resulted in an indefinite suspension by the ECU athletic department.
The Pirates will take on Houston in their last home game of the season at 12 p.m. this Saturday,
(top photo by John Stowe; right photo from media relations)
According to Dr. Douglas
Schneider, an associate
professor of accounting
and CPA, an individual
convicted of a federal
offense would probably
have great difficulty work-
ing as an accountant.
"There's no question
that your career in
accounting and other
financial areas would be-
ad versely affected Sch-
neider said.
Alston has served as
backup for junior, starting
quarterback David Gar-
rard for two seasons and
has played in every game
so far this season. He
graduated from Warren
County High School in
1998 and was recruited by
ECU that same year.
Another incident
involving a counterfeit
bill occurred on Thursday,
Nov. 2. At approximately
11:45 p.m, an ECU staff
member reported to ECU
police that a black male
had passed a counterfeit
$100 bill at the Galley
dining area in Jones Resi-
dence Hall on College Hill
Drive.
The ECU Police
Department was unavail-
able for comment regard-
ing this incident at press
time.
Alston declined com-
ment for this story.

Golden Key International Honor
Society to induct 4 year old
Scholars unite to
raise needed funds
for abused child
Nancy Kuck
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
The Golden Key Inter-
national Honor Society
will host an induction
for new members at 7
p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14 in
Wright Auditorium. One
special inductee will be
David Cody Rinehart, a
4-year-old boy who is the
victim of child abuse.
On April 12, 1997,
15-month-old David was
taken to Duke University
Medical Center after being
subjected to 10 days of
child abuse by his mother
Robin Noffsinger and her
boyfriend, David Tripp Jr.
David's injuries, which
included a fractured arm,
skull, spine, leg and
ribs, puncture wounds,
chemical blinding to the
eyes, multiple bruises and
severe burns to various
body parts, left him in
a coma for a couple of
months.
Medical personnel
stated that the skull frac-
ture David suffered was
the equivalent to being
thrown against a hard
object at 50-60 miles per
hour.
"This is the worst
case of child abuse in
my remembrance said
Ronald Hewett, Bruns-
wick County Sheriff. "The
investigation had to be
conducted in a slow,
methodical and accurate
manner to assure that our
case is solid and fair to
everyone concerned
Noffsinger and Tripp
were sentenced to prison
under a Class E felony.
Noffsinger faces a maxi-
mum punishment of 185
months in jail where Tripp
faces charges of up to 93
months.
"This is the most trau-
matic abuse in North Car-
olina history said State
Sen. Hamilton.
David's case alone
instigated passage of N.C.
Senate Bill 252, which
is titled, "An act to pro-
vide that child abuse
causing extreme debilitat-
ing injury is a Class C
felony
The bill was intro-
duced by Hamilton and
unofficially called the
"Cody Rinehart Bill It
was passed on July 20,
1999 and was put into
effect in December 1999.
A Class C felony will
extend a prison sentence
for anyone guilty of child
abuse from the regular
Class E felony of 15-74
months to a Class C
felony of 44-210 months.
At 4 years of age, David
is left with spastic quad-
riplegic cerebral palsy,
seizure disorder, cortical
blindness, diencephalic
storms, gastroesophageal
reflux, reactive airways
disease and remains on
multiple medications and
tube feedings.
In February 1998, Lori
Stuart, an alumna of ECU,
met David at a child
care facility. After meet-
ing with social workers,
she began the process of
adopting David. In May
2000, the adoption was
finalized. David moved
in with Stuart where he
continues to receive medi-
cal care.
Stuart approached the
Golden Key International
Honor Society with the
idea of a fundraiser for
David in lieu of his medi-
cal costs. In response to
this request, Golden Key
decided to adopt David
indirectly to increase the
quality of his care.
"The Little David
Fund" was started and
sponsored by Golden
Key. The organization has
raised $3,199 thus far
through various dona-
tions and fundraisers.
"We are trying to raise
money financially because
that is where we are lack-
ing said Chris Hill, presi-
dent of Golden Key. "He's
got a lot of love in that
house. The only thing he
is lacking is additional
financial help
The society current
has approximately 600
active members. Next
week's induction will

Candidates, young voters can't
seem to find common ground
WASHINGTON (TMS)-Evan
Rabinowitz, a 20-year-old college
junior from California, has figured
out the politics of special interests:
If you show up at the voting booth,
your issues get heard.
It's no wonder, he said, that the
presidential candidates are talking
about Medicare and Social Security
and issues that affect the elderly.
"Those are the people that
vote Rabinowitz said.
Therein lies the dilemma for
younger voters. They don't tend to
vote because Al Gore and George W.
Bush don't talk about their issues;
the candidates don't talk about
their issues because they don't tend
to vote.
Political experts expect that
voting by America's 18- to 24-year-
olds will drop to an all-time low this
presidential election-the result of
apathy, cynicism and a disenchant-
ment with national politics.
"They don't see anything in
either candidate that will make
a major change in their lives
said Curtis Gans, director of the
Committee for the Study of the
American Electorate, a nonpartisan
organization that studies national
voting patterns.
Julia Cohen, executive director
of Youth Vote 2000, a grassroots
voting drive for Americans under
30 years old, calls it a "mutual cycle
of neglect.
It's not for lack of trying.
Gore's daughter, Karenna Gore
Schiff, heads up Gorenet-a grass-
roots program directed toward
young voters.
George P. Bush, George Ws
nephew and son of Florida's Gov.
Jeb Bush, is spearheading the
Republican campaign to raise youth
interest. Both campaigns have
elaborate Web sites, a popular
medium among young people. And
colleges across the country have
student groups conducting get-out-
the-vote campaigns.
Yet, for all that, many potential
first-time voters find the candidates
lacking.
For example, Youth Vote 2000
conducted a focus group of 18-
to 24-year-olds during the third
presidential debate Oct. 17 and
found that most participants con-
cluded that the candidates blew
their chances to engage young
people.
When asked by a college profes-
sor in the audience about apathy
among younger voters and their
belief that they were being ignored,
Gore replied by discussing the
importance of campaign finance
reform and Bush talked about his
desire to end the bitter partisanship
in Washington.

Campus Crusade founder diagnosed with terminal disease Goi� ��
Knight Ridder (TMS-Bill Bright,
a businessman-tumed-evangellst
who founded Campus Crusade for
Christ 49 years ago and built it into
a major, worldwide ministry based
In Orlando, has a terminal lung
ailment and prostate cancer.
Bright, 79, was definitively diag-
nosed last week with the lung dis-
ease, pulmonary fibrosis, a Campus
Crusade spokesman said earlier this
week. The condition is an incurable
buildup of scar tissue in the lungs
that stops them from doing their
job of transferring oxygen to the
blood.
The average life expectancy
after a diagnosis of pulmonary
fibrosis is three to five years, said
James Woelbern, Campus Crusade
spokesman. Woelbern would not
provide a prognosis for Bright.
After a preliminary diagnosis.
Bright recently underwent three
days of extensive tests at the Mayo
Clinic in Rochester, Minn one of
the world's largest medical centers,
with expertise in a wide range
of conditions. After the evalua-
tion. Bright received the confirmed
diagnosis last week from his doctor,
Woelbern said.
Bright has been aware for the
past four years of the prostate
cancer, also potentially lethal but
usually slow-moving. He has been
treated for the cancer but has not
made the condition known pub-
licly.
Woelbern said doctors think
Bright developed pulmonary fibro-
sis during the prostate cancer treat-
ment, but that the cause of the lung
ailment is unknown.
In August, Bright announced he
intended to step down as president
of Campus Crusade on Aug. 1,
2001, and turn over the reins to
Steve Douglass, a 30-year veteran
of the organization.
However, Woelbern said Bright's
health was not a factor in that
decision.
Bright and his wife, Vonette,
founded Campus Crusade as a small
ministry to college students at the
University of California 1-os Angeles
in 1951.
Today, Campus Crusade main-
tains its college activities on cam-
puses worldwide, including more
than 800 schools in the United
States.
Campus Crusade has expanded
its work into other missions, includ-
ing a family missionary effort and
the "Jesus" film, which has been
translated into 620 languages.
The group has more than 22,000
full-time staff members in 186
countries.
That includes about 900
employees at its $45 million head-
quarters on 275 acres in the Lake
Hart area of Orlando.

HOUSTON (AP)-Three Euro-
pean diplomats on Saturday joined
Mexico in appeals to Gov. George
W. Bush and the Texas parole board
to halt the execution of a native of
Mexico convicted of a 1989 rape
and murder.
Miguel Flores, 31, faces execu-
tion Nov. 9 for abducting, raping
and fatally stabbing college student
Angela Tyson with a pocket knife.
Flores came within days of being
executed in 1995, when he received
a stay of execution from a federal
judge. The U.S. Supreme Court in
1994 declined to hear his case.
The French and Swedish ambas-
sadors to the United States and
the head of the European Union's
Delegation of the European Com-
mission sent a letter requesting the
stay of execution to Bush and the
Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles,
the French consulate in Houston

said Saturday.
Flores would have had a fair trial
if Texas authorities had allowed him
to contact Mexican officials given
the "inherent disadvantages facing
a detained foreign national said
the letter, which cited provisions
of international law under the
Vienna Convention on Consular
Relations.
The letter also asked Bush to
direct the Board of Pardons and
Paroles to investigate Flores' case
further and was signed by French
ambassador Francois Bujon de
l'Estang, Swedish ambassador Jan
Eliasson and Gunter Burghardt,
head of the European Commission
delegation.
Mexican consuls based in Texas
met last month with state officials,
seeking to halt the execution. The
Mexican officials also have filed a
protest with the U.S. State Depart-
ment.
Under Texas law, the governor
can only issue a one-time, 30-day
reprieve or act on a recommenda-
tion of the parole board to grant a
stay, commute a sentence or issue
a pardon.
The Texas Attorney General's
office has said that there is no
precedent for granting Flores relief
based on the Vienna Convention.
Last year, Joseph Stanley Faulder
of Canada was executed in Texas
despite his attorneys' claims that
his conviction was tainted because
he was never told he could seek
help from Canadian authorities
after his arrest. U.S. Secretary of
State. Madeleine
Albright was among those who
got involved on Faulder's behalf.
Phony AIDS letters

MINNEAPOLIS (AP)-Dozens of
people were sent phony, official-
looking letters telling them they are
infected with the AIDS virus.
Mayor Sharon Sayles Belton's
name and the City Hall address
appear as the sender on the enve-
lopes, but it is unclear who sent
them or why.
About two dozen people sent
Iheir letters to her or called for an
explanation.
Belton turned the letters over
to federal investigators.
"This is really a vicious kind of
mail fraudsaid Ann Freeman, a
spokeswoman for the mayor.
I he letters refer to recipients as
patients with HIV and tell them to
contact the news media.
The envelopes had Florida
postmarks and also show return
addresses on the back for a Target
store in Coral Springs, Fla and
Target Corp. headquarters in Min-
neapolis. A Target spokeswoman
said Ihe company wasn't involved
and is investigating.

shows that Athletic
Dirctor Mike Hamrick
and Head Coach Steve

when college athletics

OUR VIEW
ECU backup quarterback, Richard Alston was arrested late last week after
he attempted to pass a counterfeit $100 bill at a local Burger King. The
sophomore then left the scene and was tracked down at his apartment where
police found drug paraphernalia.
Acting quickly, the the athletic department suspended Alston indefinitely
pending the outcome of the investigation.
Earlier this year, Pennsylvania State University quarterback Rashard Casey
was accused of the racially motivated beating of an off-duty police officer. He
was allowed to continue to play. However, in Casey's case, he was cleared
of the charges.
Three years ago, a group of players at the University of North Carolina-
Chapel Hill were involved in an altercation in downtown Chapel Hill. The
group played all season.
lust last year, UNC-CH basketball player Ed Cota was implicated in an
altercation in Chapel Hill on Halloween. Cota too continued to play.
Former Connecticut Huskies point guard Khalid El-Amin was stopped two
years ago with marijuana in his car. He was also allowed to play.
Earlier this season rumors circulated that during a high school game at
Florida Field in Gainesville, Fla. both locker rooms were hit by thieves who took
jewelry and other valuables from the players' bags during the game. One name
that came up was that of abar Caffney, a UF wide receiver. The school did
not look into the matter and Gaffney played that week, catching the winning
touchdown against Tennessee.
The phenomena does not stop in the pros. Former Nebraska runningback
Lawrence Phillips was charged with beating his girlfriend. That did not stop the
Rams from making him their first round pick. Runningback Cecil Collins was
kicked out of two universities for illegal behavior but was drafted in the first
round of by the Miami Dolphins.
For the ECU athletic department to immediately suspend Alston shows that
Athletic Director Mike Hamrick and Head Coach Steve Logan are serious about
running a tight, clean ship. In an age when college athletics and sports in
general are viewed as a playground for bad guys, it's good to see a department
step up and make the right call.

IN MYOPINION
A Whopper of a mistake
last week, an ECU football
player got caught making what
can only be called a very bad play.
Police arrested quarterback Richard
Alston when he tried to pass off
a counterfeit $100 bill at a local
Burger King.
I think we all know that wasn't
exactly the best idea in world.
In fact, it was just plain stupid.
Burger King is known for sometimes
double-checking $20 bills, so it
stands to reason that they'd do
it for a $100. I mean, it seems
pretty obvious that most of their
customers probably don't hand
over big bills like that for a Whop-
per. Wouldn't most people try to
pass it off at a small gas station,
or some place at least rumored to
have slack security?
Then again, I've heard that
Alston actually printed it up him-
self. So, I guess that to somebody
who thinks they can pass off a
homemade bill, it may not be quite
so obvious. But who knows-maybe
the poor guy was just too hungry
to think straight.
And, as if Alston's little purchas-
ing problem wasn't enough, there's
more. Following an investigation,
the police were also able to pin
drug charges on him.
Now, we've all seen profes-
sional athletes jailed or suspended
indefinitely for the exactly the
same sort of thing. And we know
that we should only risk as much
as we're willing to lose. You know,
"don't do the crime if you can't do
the time
So, whatever joy he got from
selling or using drugs, along with
the counterfeiting, apparently
meant more to him than football.
And I'm sure his teammates appre-
ciate his "Pirate Pride" just as much
as the rest of us do.
What is truly sad is that his
future is on the line. Alston was
majoring in accounting and coun-
terfeiting is a federal offense. Which
means that if he is convicted, odds
are he will never become a Certi-
fied Public Accountant. Just think
about it. If you were looking for
someone to handle your books,
would you pick the guy with that
on his record?
So, what happens now? As I
understand it, Head Coach Steve
Logan says the matter will be "han-
dled internally What does that
mean? Will he be suspended for
the rest of the season? Will he lose
whatever scholarships or privileges
he might have?
Perhaps the better question is
this: Why? Why isn't the court
going to decide the entire matter?
For that matter, how much say will
KCU authorities have? If you or I
walked into a Burger King with a
counterfeit $20 or even a fake $5,
who would bail us out? Just because
we're not "somebody we'd be on
our own.
We could pretty much kiss the
rest of our semester, and possibly
entire college career, good-bye,
right then and there.
But will that be the case for this
football player? I just hope that
what happens far too often doesn't
happen here. You know, when the
"who" outweighs the "what and
the star finds that he's holding a
"get out of jail free" card.
If that happens, I'll want to
know where was I when they
handed those out.
The two candidates with their
different opinions have made it
clear that they will help all Ameri-
cans and the other candidate will
only hurt them.
Well, last week we analyzed Gov.
George W. Bush. Now, let's take a
closer look at the Vice-President.
You may have already voted by the
time you read this, but this might
make you wonder if you made the
right decision.
Al Gore is representing most of
the American population, whether
they know it or not. Unless you are
in the top 1 percent wealthiest and
you want to get most of your taxes
back, Al Gore will benefit you the
most. He wants to give tax breaks
to those who need it and deserve
it the most.
He wants to save social security
and Medicare for those who are
going to need it, while Bush, who
doesn't have much concern for
those who are going to need it, is
putting them in jeopardy. Granted
that a social security check is not
much, it is how some senior citizens
are getting by and we need to save
it for those who will need it In the
future.
In this country, whether you
are rich or poor, you should still be
able to live a decent and respectful
life.
Gore is also going to protect the
surplus rather than give it away
to the richest in this country. If
you look at the Reagan and Bush
administrations, they did nothing
but accumulate the largest debt
this country has ever seen. It is
apparent that the republicans are
not very good at basic math and
economics.
Even with this huge debt, the
Clinton administration helped
Americans to see one of the most
prosperous times in our history
while accumulating the largest
surplus we have ever seen. If Bush
is allowed to step into office, then
the projected surplus is going to
decrease drastically.
Gore is also a man who makes
reasonable promises. Bush, on
the other hand, has promised the
wealthy in this country a trillion
dollars in tax cuts while promising
the same money to the senior citi-
zens; which promise do you think
he will break? Gore has made prom-
ises that are not only good for the
country but they are reasonable
and responsible.
When it comes to the environ-
ment, Bush doesn't have much to
say. The reason being that those
who pay for his campaign don't
want any environmental laws inter-
fering with their businesses.
This only means the air we
breathe, the water we drink and the
food we eat are going to become
more contaminated and our health
conditions are going to fall.
Global warming is going to
become a serious problem in the
future and our dependence on oil
is going to be prolonged.
Gore wants to do something
about the big corporations pollut-
ing our air. He wants to find new
energy supplies that are friendly
to our environment, our economy
and at the same time will take our
dependence off of big oil.
When it comes to foreign policy,
Bush doesn't have a clue, whereas
Gore knows more than enough.
This is a big factor when it comes to
dealing with our enemies and our
allies. It is very important to keep
peace in the Middle East.
President Clinton has worked so
hard and yet conditions continue
to decline in the Middle East. What
do you think will happen if Bush
becomes president? Are we going to
repeat something like Desert Storm,
which will only make our economic
conditions here worse?
It's your vote, remember this
when you are looking at that
ballot.

Like it or not, Bush's DUI changes things
Central Florida Future (TMS
Campus)-With Election Day right
around the corner, it has come out
that George W. Bush received a DUI
in 1976.
Driving under the influence
of alcohol is a serious matter. It
is something that no one should
ever do. It unwillingly puts other
people's lives at risk. Do we really
want or need a president that is
willing to do something such as
this?
I know many people have
driven intoxicated. 1 have even
done so. And that was one of the
most stupid decisions I have ever
made in my entire life. I am cer-
tainly not proclaiming that I am
perfect, but without a doubt, 1 don't
think that our president should be
someone who would commit such
a crime.
I feel that another issue at hand
here is that Bush waited until either
the media or his competitors uncov-
ered this issue, before he made
a decision to discuss it with the
public.
"I'll be the first to say that what
I did was wrong, and I've corrected
that. I think the people of America
will understand that said Bush in
a hurried press conference Nov. 2.
The people of America would
be more likely to understand if
Bush had fessed up and let every-
one know about this matter much
earlier.
Bush's DUI occurred 24 years
ago. Bush stated though that he
had quit drinking only 14 years
ago. That is a 10-year gap from
the time of his DUI until he quit.
Was a DUI not enough to stop him
from drinking? Would the stresses
of the presidency drive Bush back
to drinking?
I understand that no one is
absolutely perfect. I however want
the most perfect person as our
country's leader. I want the man or
woman who is going to be up front
and honest with me.
I want the person who shows
longevity in a relationship, good
business sense. Most importantly,
I want someone with good morals
and ethics in charge of running
our country.
This, along with the issue of
Bush's possible use of cocaine, is
going to be a huge deciding factor
for many people.
Al Gore has said that he has no
intention of mentioning Bush's
DUI in upcoming speeches. This
is a true sign of how to conduct
yourself in this type of situation.
Centralia College
(U-WIRE)-Today is the day. Quite
possibly the most important day of
the new millennium, and certainly
the most historically significant of
this century.
Yes, folks, you know what I'm
talking about. Nov. 7,2000. The day
that we can all finally quit listening
to all these politicians saying any
and every outlandish thing their
speech writers can dream up to
convince us that only they have
the secret to saving America.
And I must admit, I am ecstati-
cally relieved. Now I can get back
to the really important stuff like
trying to figure out how to get
enough money to qualify for one
of those tax-breaks for the wealthy
they keep talking about.
Although I did find the various
"negative campaigning" ads mildly
amusing, I was mostly insulted.
It could be just me, but do these
people think that we are so col-
lectively stupid that we would
actually believe anything these
scoundrels have to say?
Now let me see. I have a chance
to get into an office where I can
make an obscene amount of money
doing absolutely nothing with
no accountability for my actions,
where the worst thing that could
happen is that I am "retired"
with another obscene amount of
money.
What would I do to get in a
position like this? Probably the
same things all these politicians
are doing. Which is to say and do
anything and everything no matter
how remotely unconnected to the
truth that may be.
To think that those scalawags
actually believe that those of us who
live in the real world of mortgages,
payments, gas prices and the neces-
sity to eat do not realize what
they're up to, really chaps my
posterior.
Maybe it's just a male mid-life
crisis sort of thing, or just a skepti-
cism based on a lifetime of watch-
ing more and more of our hard-
earned money being used to give us
less and less freedom to use it, but
I find that I don't really care who is
elected. I don't think there is a bit
of difference in any of them.
Will I vote? Yep. At least then I
will be able to bitch and moan in an
honorable fashion. There is nothing
more embarrassing than getting
into an impassioned, informed
bitching session on the erosion
of our personal freedoms when
the moron who still thinks the
government is out for our best
interests asks, "Did you vote?" Oh,
yeah. That will put a damper on
conversation, all right.
Who am I going to vote for?
Now that is an interesting question.
From' what I hear, for the first time,
the presidency could be decided by
a single vote. So I'm holding out
to the last possible second, in the
hopes that MY vote is the hinge.
Ah I tremble just to think about
it. With all that is at stake, can you
imagine what that one hinge vote
would be worth?
And would I shamelessly offer
that vote to the highest bidder?
Well of course I would, in a heart-
beat! But take heart, dear readers,
lest I be held in even lower esteem
than those of you who know me
already hold me, I can assure you
such a vote would be exorbitantly
expensive. 1 may be easy, but I'm
not cheap!
Unfortunately, the odds on the
election hinging upon my vote are
pretty slim. It's a possibility, sure,
but more than likely the odds are
similar to the odds of my ever win-
ning the Publishers Clearinghouse
Sweepstakes.
I always enter that too. Cynical
and skeptical as I may be, I am
always the optimist. There is a
slim chance that things will turn
out better than I think they will,
though I seriously doubt it.
At least 1 can rest assured that
when I turn on the TV all I will
have to deal with are the usual
ads that try to convince me I will
be handsome, charming, rich and
irresistible if 1 buy whatever they
happen to be selling between every
play of whatever football game I
can find.
Who knows, maybe I'll even
win the sweepstakes! But I doubt
it.

The Fourth Annual Adapted Sports Day for athletes
in wheelchairs was held Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Student
Recreation Center (SRC) to celebrate their ability to
participate in athletics despite physical challenges.
People from all around the Southeast gathered together
to learn and develop skills from state-wide professionals,
ECU faculty and guest presenter William Brady, all
made possible through a grant from the Recreation
Access Project.
"I was hit by a car as a college student at NC State
and in the blink of an eye, 1 could no longer walk
said William Brady, motivational speaker at the event.
"To me, it was like starting my life over at 20 years old.
I was essentially like a baby
Brady, a member of three Paralympic USA Track and
Field Teams, is a Charlotte, N.C. native who traveled
to ECU to share his knowledge and experience with
attendees. Currently Brady serves as a coach for the
Charlotte Institute of Rehabilitation's Youth Track and
Field team. He visited ECU to speak to the audience
on his personal plight as a wheelchair user as well
as to demonstrate his newest athletic outlet, hand
cycling.
" came because I think that we as a society should
see and support these people more than we do.
Hopefully, I serve as an inspiration to them
Anna Castillo
Senior, criminal justice major
"We decided that one of our goals would be to
bring someone in who is incredibly active said Terri
Edwards, coordinator for Adapted Recreation at ECU.
"We want to inform people of a host of activities,
particularly new activities, to motivate them in their
everyday lives
A number of workshops were held to introduce
the people who attended to events that they can not
experience on aiejjulaf basis-Eyerything from kayaking
and snorkeling, to wall climbing and martial arts were
offered to those iriftfeSted.
"I just get to do a bunch of fun stuff that I don't
normally get to do when I participate in something
like this said sophomore Mark janka, therapeutic
recreation major.
Senior Anna Castillo, another student who attended,
was injured in a car accident in June which left her
reliant on a wheelchair until last week.
"I have been physically challenged so I can identify
with both short and long-term disabilities said
Castillo, a criminal justice major. "I came because
I think that we as a society should see and support
these people more than we do. Hopefully, I serve as
an inspiration to them
ECU, unlike any other school in the University
of North Carolina system, hosts a year-long program
for wheelchair users. The program, known as ARISE
(Adapted Recreation and Intramural Sports Enrich-
ment), makes possible similar events throughout the
year to enrich the lives of student wheelchair users
as they attend ECU.
"ARISE is a big part of why I decided to come to
ECU Janka said.
According to Todd King, director of marketing for
SRC, the event is in place to try to provide wheelchair
users an opportunity to find new outlets and succeed as
they adapt to the changes in their lives.
'These are adults who have never had a chance to
experience these things Edwards said. "To many, it's
the first time that they are introduced to venues such
using hand brakes on a bike, something able people do
without a second thought
Edwards feels that although activities such as this
are not uncommon across the country, it gives ECU
great exposure.
"Though legally, all schools must meet accessibility
requirements, few schools offer programs such as
ARISE Edwards said. "We try to act as a model
to encourage other schools to implement similar
programs

Non-traditional Student
Week celebrates the atypical
Tafelmusik's
sounds invade ECU
Event sponsors
various activities
Maura Buck
FEATURES EDITOR
This week marks the
first annual Non-tradi-
tional Student Week in
ECU history. The event,
brought about by the
Association for Non-Tra-
ditional Students, is now
nationally recognizing
non-traditional students
at universities across
America and celebrating
their presence.
According to Michele
Myers, director of Adult
and Commuter Student
Services, there are approxi-
mately 4,2(H) non-tradi-
tional students presently
attending ECU.
Formally, non-tradi-
tional students were clas-
sified as being over 24
years old however Myers
feels that any student that
hasn't followed the typical
pattern of going directly
from high school to col-
lege could be classified as
non-traditional.
"I would call a single
mom at 20 years old non-
traditional Myers said. "I
feel that any student start-
ing college in an abnormal
fashion could be catego-
rized as non-traditional
One of the purposes
of the week is to make
those students feel apart
of the ECU community.
As a result, there are
a number of activities
planned for the week
to get those students
involved on campus.
Tonight and Thursday,
Nov. 9 there will be discus-
sions on financial plan-
ning as well as managing
schoolwork and family.
In addition, there will
be coupon offers and raf-
fles at information tables
set up 11
a.ml p.m.
today in
front of the
Wright
Plaza and
from 11
a.ml p.m.
tomorrow,
Nov. 8 at
the Cro-
atan. There will also be
free blood pressure screen-
ing throughout the week
at Student Health Ser-
vices.
"Non-traditional stu-
dents have more life roles
than do most students
Myers said. "They are
not simply students, they
are students as well as
parents, employees and
in many cases involved
within their communi-
ties. These many factors,
in many cases produce
stress as well as difficulty
managing time
Senior Margie Boyd, a
business major, feels like
her collegiate experience
is vastly different that that
of traditional students.
"My experience is dif-
ferent in a lot of ways
Boyd said. "1 think that
I have a much different
perspective than that of
a younger person. This is
not fun to me like it is to
younger students. I am in
school because I want to
be

"I first

out of high

really wasn't

enstein said . "I think that
it's too soon, after com-
pleting 13 years elemen-
tary and high school, to
embark on a collegiate
career. I am here now, not
because my parents want
me to be, but because I
want to be
Myers feels that this
week is a good start to
honoring those students,
however the Office of
Adult and Commuter Stu-
dent Services has just
begun.
"We are simply
scratching the surface
with this type of event
Myers said. "We plan on
building and improving
upon what we are begin-
ning
Myers feels that there
are a lot of student ste-
reotypes that need to be
broken down. She feels
that instead of picking out
differences, students need
to start interacting with
them more.
"If students would take
the time to talk to those
non-traditional students,
they would find that they
can learn a great deal from
them Myers said.
Boyd said that she is
exciting that the Office
of Adult and Commuter
Student Services is host-
ing a week in their honor.
She feels that it's a great
resource for non-tradi-
tional students where they
can learn where to get
help in a setting that
would allow them to feel
comfortable.
"We are apart of stu-
dent life Myers said.
"Our job is to make a
connection for those stu-
dents. We want them to
know that we are here for
them

Tafelmusik from 6
of the goals of the Performing Arts
Series is to bring world-class artists
like this one to ECU
In Canada, Tafelmusik has
received five Juno Awards for "Best
Classical Album and in 1996
Tafelmusik received Germany's
highest recording accolade when
they were awarded the ECHO Klas-
sik "Best Orchestra of the Year
Other achievements by Tafelmusik
include Absolute Sound's "Record of
the Year CD Review's "Disc of the
Month" and the "Critics' Choice"
in BBC Magazine.
"Tafelmusik is much more than
a group of musicians said Tom
Manoff, a broadcaster for National
Public Radio. "Each player is an
artist of the highest order. This
new release from Tafelmusik is so
joyous, so brilliant that I'm also
not embarrassed to proclaim it
the finest recording of "The Water
Music" that I've ever heard
Tafelmusik, meaning "table
music was founded in 1979, and
has been under the leadership of
Music Director Jeanne Union since
1981. They have achieved inter-
national stature during Lamon's
tenure and have performed over
SO concerts a year at their home in
Toronto while touring extensively
around the world.
"The Tafelmusik orchestra has
built, in its special field, a reputa-
tion as solid as those of the New
York or Berlin philharmonics
said Joseph McClellan, reporter,
Washington Post.
Tafelmusik, Canada's renowned
Baroque Orchestra, based in
Toronto, has 18 permanent mem-
bers and many additional members
who join in when varied instru-
mentation is needed. All of the

The last five
times Louisville
stepped on the
field with South-
em Miss, the
Eagles walked
off victorious.
Saturday, with first place and a trip to
the Liberty Bowl on the line, the Cardinals
rose to the occasion, whipping the Eagles
49-28.
Before Saturday, Southern Miss had
only allowed six touchdowns all season.
Louisville hung seven on the stunned Eagle
defense.
The Cardinals picked off USM quarter-
back Jeff Kelly four times in the win.
The loss was only Southern Miss' third
in the history of the conference.
'Notes win Bowl II
Somebody forgot to tell Florida State
Head Coach Bobby Bowden that you are
not supposed to beat
your kids bad.
In what was the
Seminoles second meet-
ing with the Tommy
Bowden-led Clemson
Tigers, Florida State
made the point that
they too should be in
the running for the
national title with a 54-7 romp.
FSU quarterback Chris Weinke threw tor
S21 yards in the blowout win that saw
the Seminoles pile on 771 yards of total
offense.
The drubbing was a departure from the
17-14 win the FSU eked out last season at
Death Valley.
Hurricanes over Hokies
The Miami Hurricanes staked their claim
as one of the nations' top teams Saturday
with a 41-21 win over Virginia Tech.
Thanks to two touchdowns from San-
tana Moss, the Hurricanes easily routed the
Hokies, who were without their offensive
dynamo.
Virginia Tech quarterback, Michael Vick
did not practice all week due to an ankle
sprain. While he did play for a few series,
the sophomore was ineffective.
The loss snapped the Hokies 19-game
regular season winning streak.
Ross steps down
Detroit Lions head coach, Bobby Ross
announced his resigna-
tion following the team's
23-8 loss to Miami on
Sunday.
Former Michigan
head coach Gary
Moeller will take over for
Ross as coach of the 5-4
Lions.
Ross began coaching
the Lions after 1996. He
guided the San Diego Chargers to a Super
Bowl berth in 1995 and Georgia Tech to a
national title in 1990.
Ross was 27-30 as head coach of the
Lions.

Aggressive young
teem builds for future
Men's basketball enters season
with promise; lose first exhibition
PIRATES FALL 119-89 AGAINST CLUB VENTSPILS
Scott Lange
STAFF WRITER
The 2000-01 men's basketball team is preparing
for their last season in the CAA. The team, which
will move to Conference USA next season, will look
to improve from last year's 10-18 record.
Two starters will return from last year's squad.
Junior forward Kenyatta Brown averaged 6.7 points
and 3.7 rebounds per game for the team last season.
He emerged as one of the more productive players
as the season went on last year.
Junior Brandon Hawkins is the team's top
returning scorer. Hawkins scored in double figures
13 times last season.
This year's team will be a very young team that
will need some work. With the loss of some key
players from last season the team is welcoming six
newcomers to the program. The newcomers joining
the team will be looked up to early for contributions.
The team is building for the future, which has
second year coach Bill Herrion excited.
"Our coaching staff is extremely pleased with
the progress we have been making Herrion said.
"I am pleased with where we are at this particular
point now
"The freshmen are learning very well both
offensively and defensively Hawkins said. "We all
just have to come together and get some wins
Last year's squad used the size advantage to
find points inside. This year with the size gone,
the team will look to score from the perimeter and
in transition.
"Everyone on our team can run this year said
Morrisey. "We have guys this year who have the
ability to run the floor and score points
One area that has impressed Herrion is the team's
physical ability.
"1 am very impressed with the returning players
from last season Herrion said. "The new kids in
the program, in particular the freshmen, are all
advanced physically
However, the Pirates do have some concerns
about the team. Depth and lack of experience in
the front court could be their biggest problem.
The loss of several big men for rebounding and an
inside game could be key. The only player who has
returned from the front court this year is senior
forward Vinston Sharpe.
The new style of play could be entertaining for
the fans. They will definitely be scoring more points
this year. Staying healthy though could be the key
to how far the team goes.
Last Sunday, the Pirates showed off their new
transition style offense against Club Ventspils of
Latvia from Lithuania. The team lost 119-87.
The Pirates kept it close in the first half. The
team was able to get the opening tip and race out
to a quick 7-2 lead.
Junior guard Brandon Hawkins had the hot hand
early on nailing three 3-pointers in the first five
minutes of the game. The team was able to build
a 19-11 lead before Club Ventspils cut the lead to
30-29. The lead changed several times as the game
went on, but Club Ventspils was able to come up
with some transition points to take a five point lead
at 52-47 to end the half.
Club Ventspils picked it up a notch as the second
half began. They cruised to a quick 8-0 run to start
the half and never looked back from there.
Club Ventspils shot a blistering 62.9 percent
from the field and had a thirty-four point lead at
one point. The Pirates struggled in the second half
shooting only 36.2 percent for the game. The team
was outscored 67-40 in the second half.
Senior swingman, Vinston Sharpe represents one of the few inside players that the
2000-01 ECU team returns. Sharpe, a Durham native, will be called upon to lead the
young team. Head Coach Bill Herrion welcomes three freshmen and two transfers to
the squad this season, (file photo)

SPORTS EDITOR
Okay please explain
this to me, if team A beats
team B, then invariably,
team A is better. It's quite
simple really, isn't it?
Saturday, Miami beat
the No. 2 team in the
country, the previously
unbeaten Virginia Tech,
soundly.
Earlier in the year, the
Hurricanes defeated Flor-
ida State. The only blem-
ish on Miami's season is
a September loss to No. 6
Washington.
So, in the new Bowl
Championship Series
Rankings, Miami should
be sitting second behind
Oklahoma, right?
Nope, they are third
behind Florida State, the
team that they beat earlier
this year. Unreal.
Since it's inception,
the BCS has been a target
for critics in favor of play-
offs.
The system is a combi-
nation of polls, computer
ranking systems and other
variables, combined in a
complicated math prob-
lem that supposedly holds
the answer college foot-
ball's national champion-
ship dilemma.
Each year the BCS crit-
ics hope for the system
to spit out a ridiculous
scenario that will show
the BCS for the flawed
system that it is.
Thus far they have
been unsuccessful as every
year college football has
had a true national cham-
pionship and champion,
this year if both FSU and
Miami win their last few
games and the Hurricanes
are on the outside looking
in come the Orange Bowl,
the critics will have their
scenario.
It also will change the
heart of this reporter.
Anyone who knows
me knows that I am a
purist with a capital "P
I'm against the designated
hitter, graphite racquets
and the catcher-cam. I
have argued like a pigskin
Patrick Henry about the
virtues of the bowl system.
Much of the fun of col-
lege football is in the
pageantry. It's "dotting
the T at Ohio State,
it's Howard's Rock and
Touchdown Jesus.
Just as important as
those is the slew of
Weedeater Bowl that fill
our televisions come the
Holiday season.
All that aside, if Miami
doesn't make it into the
national championship
game and Florida State
does then the hell with
it, let's go to a playoff.

Volleyball team drops two at home
�'George Mason,
American top Pirates in Minges
Ryan Downey
SENIOR WRITER
The ECU volleyball team picked up its first two
home losses of the season against George Mason in a
Friday night contest and the conference powerhouse
American on Saturday.
The team had previously been unbeatable at home,
storming to a 6-0 record and vanquishing all conference
foes, controlling the games from start to finish.
"It was a rough weekend said Head Coach Colleen
Farrell. "We played two very good teams and didn't
execute. When you beat a team 15-4 in one game last
night and today yet loose the other games, then we're
just not executing
American, 23-4 overall and 9-2 on the road was
not Intimidated by the Pirates as they jumped out
to an early lead in game one and held on in a 15-9
win. The second game was a 15-5 loss for the Pirates
who later rebounded with a one sided 15-4 win in
game three. Game four looked more like the first two,
"We had a few bad runs where they would
score and we wouldn't. That caused us to
start playing tentatively
Luclnda Mason
Outside hitter
with American again jumping out to an early lead
and holding on winning 15-5, sending the Pirates to
6-4 in the conference but still six games over .500 at
16-10 overall. The Pirates are guaranteed a winning
record in what has been a turn around season for
the program.
"We came in not doubting our ability said senior
outside hitter Lucinda Mason. "We had a few bad runs
where they would score and we wouldn't. That caused
us to start playing tentatively
The players are left to regather themselves on the
road where they will play their next three games before
finishing the season at home against Virginia Tech.
The Pirates will be taking a swing through Virginia
facing William & Mary and Virginia Commonwealth,
then ending their road games at NC State. The players
are determined to stay focused on finishing out the
season strong.
This weekend's losses mark the first by the Pirates this
season in Minges Coliseum, (file photo)
"We just need to forget this weekend, learn from
it and move on said senior Cinta Claro. "I would
say William & Mary is our biggest challenge on the
road
The Pirates will play their final home game at 7
p.m. Nov. 18.

Panthers
shock Rams
ST. LOUIS (AP)-Minus their two
biggest stars, the St. l.ouis Rams
were just another team.
Steve Beuerlein threw two
touchdown passes and Joe Nedney
made four field goals, including a
46-yarder with 40 seconds remain-
ing, in the Carolina Panthers' 27-24
upset of the Super Bowl champions
Sunday night.
The Rams were without Mar-
shall Faulk, whose right knee
locked up on him during pre-game
warmups after it was drained ear-
lier in the day. Faulk, who was to
undergo arthroscopic surgery early
Monday, joined Kurt Warner on
the sidelines.
Team doctors estimated that
Faulk, who leads the NFI. with
1,326 yards rushing and receiving,
will be out 2-3 weeks. That probably
also is the timetable for Warner,
who has already missed two games
with a broken little finger on his
throwing hand.
"I didn't know he was going to
be out until they announced the
Rams' Faulk has knee surgery
ST. LOUIS (AP)-Marshall lock.
Faulk had knee surgery Monday,
and the team said the Rams' star
running back is expected to be
out three weeks.
The operation removed loose
cartilage from Faulk's right knee,
an injury that forced one of
the NFL's best runners to miss
Sunday night's loss to the Caro-
lina Panthers.
Teammate D'Marco Farr, a
defensive tackle, was out a
month after a similar opera-
tion.
Faulk has been playing with
a sore knee most of the season.
An MRI on Oct. 30 revealed
torn scar tissue and an enlarged
bruise in addition to the loose
cartilage.
Faulk practiced Friday and
went out for warmups after
having the knee drained earlier
Sunday, but the knee began to
'He could feel the cartilage
getting hung up In there Martz
said. "Really, there was nothing
else to do
Justin Watson started in
place of Faulk, who entering
Sunday led the NFL with 1,326
yards from scrimmage. Faulk did
not play Sunday. He suited up
for the first half but was wearing
sweats after halftime.
Watson scored on a 3-yard
run in the third quarter but
finished with 12 yards on 12
carries.
The loss of Faulk comes as
the Rams are still without last
season's NFL and Super Bowl
MVP, quarterback Kurt Warner.
Warner will be out another two
to four weeks with a broken
pinky on his throwing hand. He
was hurt during a 54-34 loss to
Kansas City on Oct. 22.
BASKETBALL from page 8
"We were aggressive in the first
half but we missed some open
shots said Herrion. "They put
pressure on us at every spot.
"We have a lot of young
guys and they played well for us
tonight said Herrion. "When
games get tough, however, you
have to have that leader on the
team and we have yet to find a
leader to settle us down
The Pirates were led by fresh-
man center Gabriel Mikulus who
had 17 points and a game high
nine lebounds. Jimmy Bishop and
Vinston Sharpe each had 14 points
a piece.
The team will have one more
exhibition game against the Califor-
nia All-Stars this Friday at 7:30 p.m.
at Minges Coliseum. The team will
begin their season next weekend by
playing in the Marist tournament in
upstate New York. The Pirates will
then have their first home game
Nov. 22 against Robert Morris.
GMs wait out offseason movement
starting lineups offensive tackle
Orlando Pace said of Faulk. "But we
can't feel sorry for ourselves
Trent Green was 29-for-42 for
428 yards and two touchdowns
and Faulk's backup, Justin Watson,
scored on a 3-yard run for the
Rams. But Watson finished with
just 12 yards on 12 carries, Green
had trouble finishing drives and
kicker Pete Stoyanovich, subbing
for injured Jeff Wilkins, missed
from 37 yards in the third quarter.
First-round pick Trung Canidate,
drafted as Faulk's backup, was active
for the first time in seven games
after recovering from a sprained
foot, but did not play. Martz, who
said last week that it was time for
Canidate to get on the field, gave

The Panthers (4-5) handed the
Rams (7-2) their second loss in three
games and ended their 15-game
winning streak in the Trans World
Dome. They also ended the Rams'
12-game winning streak against
NFC West opponents and St. Louis'
NFL-record streak of 14 straight
games with 30 or more points. The
Rams' division lead is down to one
game over New Orleans.
"We really feel like we accom-

we've done something good.

players hold the key to this offsea-
son's movement in baseball.
Until Alex Rodriguez, Manny
Ramirez, Mike Hampton and Mike
Mussina decide where they will
play next year, everyone else's plans
will be on hold.
"There's a lot of shopping and a
lot of talking, but not a lot of action
yet Boston general manager Dan
Duquette said Sunday, echoing the
sentiment of many of his colleagues
at the GM meetings.
There are at least a dozen teams
in the running for the big four free
agents, including the Red Sox, who
are targeting Mussina. Those teams
are unwilling to spend money or
fill holes with lesser players until
they know where they stand in the
big sweepstakes.
"Until the free-agent market
plays itself out, you won't see much
movement on trades said Mets
general manager Steve Phillips,
who could be involved with all four
superstars. "Most trade discussions
are held in conjunction or second-
ary to the free-agent market
The Mets have already made
offers to free-agent pitchers Rick
Reed and Turk Wendell, and could
resolve their contracts before they
are free to negotiate with other
teams beginning Saturday.
That's the first day teams other
than Seattle can talk money with
Rodriguez, the head of this year's
free-agent class.
A-Rod is one of the top offensive
players in the game at the mostly
defensive position of shortstop. At
25, he has most of his career ahead
of him.
Agent Scott Boras has prepared
a 50-page document detailing the
qualities of his client, who hit .316
with 41 homers and 132 RBIs this
season.
"When it comes to power hit-
ters, the sluggers, the guys who
can drive in 120 RBIs, MVP-type
players, in this certain timeframe
between 27 and 35, the longer the
owners wait to lock them in, the
better for the player said Boras,
who will probably make Rodriguez
baseball's highest-paid player.
"Patience is a virtue for the
slugger. Patience is a virus from the
club's standpoint
Boras, who cut off negotiations
with Seattle before the season, also
clarified remarks from Rodriguez
that he won't sign with the Yankees,
who already have his buddy, Derek
Jeter, at shortstop.
"We think it was maybe a mis-
understanding or something. He
was talking about playing them
in the American League champion-
ship series Boras said. "I spent five
days with him on the subject. He's

hasn't dismissed any team
Cleveland GM John Hart, one of
the other major players this week,
arrived Sunday and immediately
huddled with his assistants as the
Indians mull over a counterpro-
posal to Ramirez's $200 million,
10-year request. They expect to
respond to Ramirez's agent, Jeff
Moorad, by Tuesday.
Cleveland also is pursuing a"
fallback plan that could include
signing a starting pitcher and a
lesser outfielder to make up fot
Ramirez's .351 average, 38 homers
and 122 RBIs in only 439 at-bats. -
The Indians are interested
in pitchers like Mussina, Denny
Neagle and Darren Dreifort, as welf
as outfielder Ellis Burks.
"This is a good place to lay the
groundwork Cleveland assistant
general manager Mark Shapiro
said.
' The Yankees, Who "will be a
leading contender in the Ramirez,
sweepstakes, decided they want to
keep their current right fielder, Paul
O'Neill.
The Yankees appeared willing
to let O'Neill go as he struggled
down the stretch because of age
and injuries. But a .474 batting
average in the World Series appar-
ently changed GM Brian Cashman's
mind and it looks likely that O'Neill
will sign a one-year deal.
