ECU student to run
for Greenville mayor
Students wait to be seen in the financial aid office. The financial aid department has been under
investigation for misusing student funding since November.
Financial aid under investigation
Students react to possible
misuse of funds
Cohen seeks more
student representation
in city government
The North Carolina State Bureau
of Investigation is inspecting a pos-
sible misuse of student funding at
ECU'S Financial Aid Department.
John Durham, director of news
and communication services at ECU,
told reporters the university called
the SBI to investigate last Novem-
ber. Further information concern-
ing the amount of money or how it
was misused has not been released.
Many students said they didn't
know what to think since they
did not know how the money
was being misused.
Kristine Doster, who has a
BS in Biology from ECU, said she
doesn't use much financial aid,
and there is too little informa-
tion released to form an opinion.
"I guess you would have
to find out more said Doster.
If the SBI finds evidence of
misuse, students said it would be a
major concern that should be solved.
"I don't like it of course I
don't like it said Err Bowen, senior
criminal justice major.
Crystal Carter, senior English
major, said the money should be
used more responsibly.
"Those are funds that could be
going toward building, parking to
students who need it said Carter.
An ECU student has thrown
his hat into the ring and decided to
run for mayor during Greenville's
next election.
Matthew Cohen, senior politi-
cal science major, is campaigning
to become Greenville's next mayor.
Cohen said there is rumor that
Mayor Don Parrott will not seek re-
election, leaving the mayor's office
vacant. Cohen does not yet know
who he will be running against.
Cohen voiced his concern for
the lack of student involvement in
local policy making.
"I think Greenville is ready to
have an ECU student in a position
of influence within the city said
"We're a quarter to a third of the
population, but we have no influ-
ence within the city government
o Cohen cited stories of students
o. working in campaigns, running for
8 city council and lobbying to get
laws changed as examples of what
students can do if they put their
minds to it.
Cohen said although he wants
to bring recognition to student
efficacy in government, he also
wants to be mayor of the entire city
of Greenville. He wants to make an
impact on everything rather than
just select issues.
However, he did mention a
couple of areas that were of concern
to him. For one, he has a vested inter-
est in improving the city's safety.
"I think we can expand our
existing police and first-response
force into more of a modern model
of community-oriented policing
Cohen said.

Local donations help send medical students to Kenya
Three of the students and Dr. Thomas Kerkering (upper right) pose
during their spaghetti dinner fundraiser last semester.
Funds still needed to
support overseas clinics
The group of third-year medical
students hoping to go to Kenya this
summer will begin working in Afri-
can clinics this July, partly thanks
to donations from ECU faculty and
local organizations.
.Rea Csrsh,�dicaL
student at the Brody School of
Medicine, said even though they
have received help, a lot of the
money - about $4,000 each for
expenses including medications
and travel - is coming from their
own pockets.
To date, the medical students
have raised money through a letter
campaign and a spaghetti dinner.
Gersh said the Farmville Rotary Club
donated $400 to the group after the
itudt'BUi helped them,
and they have also received dona-
tions from the ECU community.
"We've got some good dona-
� tions from faculty said Gersh.
Courtney Edgar, a third-year
� medical student at Brody, said they
g are planning a fundraising party at
,S Tie Breakers June 16. They will be
� taking donations at the door and
S the owner will match whatever they
� raise. She is hoping they will have
pizza and a band at the event.
"Hopefully this is going to be a
pretty big fundraiser said Edgar.
Edgar said they are also waiting
for the first week in June to hear
from more businesses such as Wal-
Mart. So far, they have only raised
about $1,500, so they have much
more fundraising to complete.
Gersh said there is always room
for improvement.
"We're still well below our
goals Gersh said.
The students will continue to
raise money while in the states and

they come home. After the trip to
Kenya, they will hold various pre-
sentations of what they've accom-
plished to various groups who might
reimburse some of their expenses.
Gersh said it's difficult for them
to use their own money because as
third-year medical students, they
have student loans to worry about
and their hours dedicated to school
become too time-consuming to
have a successful fundraising pro-
gram. He also said they have not
had enough time to raise money
because they were just approved
last semester.
Even though Gersh said he
wishes they had more time to raise
money, the trip is a great opportu-
nity, and it is worth the price.
"Our hearts are sometimes too
big, and we want to help everyone
Gersh said.
"I'm not even thinking about
the money and I should Even if
it costs $4,000 to go to a reservation
in. Oklahoma, J would pay for it
Edgar said she's excited to go,
but a little nervous. The students
are concerned about the political
climate in Africa as well as the dis-
eases they will run into. Many luxu-
ries they are accustomed to, such

Mecklenburg police departments
using stun guns to subdue students
CHARLOTTE, NC - At least four
students at Charlotte-Mecklenburg
schools have been stunned by police
weapons that zap targets with 50,000
volts of electricity.
Despite several cases around the
country that have raised questions
about using the Taser on minors
- including a 6-year-old boy shocked
by South Florida police in October
- Charlotte-area police departments
don't keep an official count of how
many times the weapons are used
in schools.
Police said they were justified in
using the Tasers each time.
One case came in the second
week of the school year last fall. A
fight erupted between two students
at Garinger High School in Charlotte,
and neither the principal nor campus
security could stop it
As hundreds of students crowded
around, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg
police officer assigned to the school
pulled out a Taser and fired off enough
electricity that the 16-year-old's
muscles froze in place.
Tasers have prompted groups
ranging from Amnesty International to
the International Association of Chiefs
of Police to call for additional study of
their use. Amnesty International called
for a temporary moratorium, citing 103
deaths after their use in the U.S. and
Canada Activists specifically question
their use on elderly, disabled and
young people.
Advocates among law enforcement
officials nationwide say Tasers provide
alternatives to guns, pepper spray and
bruising batons.
This month, Charlotte-Mecktenburg
police released a study that showed
officers' injuries dropped 56 percent
since police began using Tasers
throughout the department. Suspects'
injuries also dropped 79 percent
Bush labels 'absurd' human rights
report alleging prisoner abuse
WASHINGTON - President Bush
called a human rights report "absurd"
for criticizing the United States'
detention of terrorist suspects at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and said
Tuesday the allegations were made
by "people who hate America
'It's absurd. It's an absurd
allegation. The United States is a
country that promotes freedom around
the world Bush said of the Amnesty
International report that compared
Guantanamo to a Soviet-era gulag.
In a Rose Garden news conference,
Bush defiantly stood by his domestic
policy agenda while defending his
actions abroad. With the death toll
climbing daily in Iraq, he said the
nation's fledgling government is
"plenty capable" of defeating terrorists
whose attacks on Iraqi civilians and
U.S. soldiers have intensified.
Bush spoke after separate air
crashes killed four American and four
Italian troops in Iraq. The governor
of Anbar province, taken hostage
three weeks ago, was killed during
clashes between U.S. forces and the
insurgents who abducted him.
Bush said the job of the U.S.
forces there is to help train Iraqis to
defeat terrorists.
"I think the Iraqi people dealt
the insurgents a serious blow when
we had the elections Bush said. 'In
other words, what the insurgents fear
is democracy because democracy is
the opposition of their vision
On another foreign policy issue,
Bush said he expressed concerns with
Russian President Vladimir Putin about
legal proceedings against former oil
tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky. Once the
richest man in Russia, Khodorkovsky
was convicted Tuesday of fraud and
tax evasion and sentenced to nine
years in prison following a trial widely
denounced as politically motivated.
Iraqi president says Saddam's
trial expected In two months
BAGHDAD, Iraq - Iraqi President
Jalal Talabani said Tuesday in an
interview with CNN that authorities
expected to put Saddam Hussein on
trial in the next two months.
Talabani said that "the court of
Iraq will decide the future of Saddam
California professors hope to stop
discrimination against women
New data shows low
female hire percentage
The University of California,
the nation's largest public univer-
sity system, continues to discrimi-
nate against women when it comes
to hiring faculty, according to a
report released last week.
The report, called "Unprece-
dented Urgency: Gender Discrimina-
tion in Faculty Hiring at the Univer-
sity of California was created by five
professors at UC Davis and points to
the most recent hiring data as evi-
dence. This data shows that nearly
all the campuses that comprise the
UC system have failed to increase
the percentage of women faculty
hire above the 37 percent reached
in the 1993-1994 academic year.
Martha ff. West; a" raw profes-
sor at UC Davis and co-author of
the report, said the percentage of
women among new faculty hires fell
from 52 percent in 1994 to 13 per-
cent in 1998. This drop happened
just as the UC system was prepar-
ing to hire new faculty to meet
anticipated enrollment increases
and a large number of retirements.
By the 1997-1998 year, UC Davis
had a drastic decline of women
hires, averaging 14 percent around
the time Proposition 209 was passed
in 1996. Proposition 209 states
"The state shall not discriminate
against, or grant preferential treat-
ment to, any individual or group on
the basis of race, sex, color, ethnic-
ity or national origin in the opera-
tion of public employment, public
education or public contracting
According to the UC Davis Web
site, "Proposition 209 had become
an 'affirmative action' program
for men: men were being given
'preference' by being hired at rates
30 percent above their availability
in the Ph.D. pool
"Discrimination against
women is a general societal prob-
lem West said.
"Studies have shown that women
have to be better qualified to be on
the same level as men. We need to
be informed of general stereotypes
and gender stereotypes as well
Dr. Cindy Elmore, a professor at
ECU, identifies with the report.
"Women in general are dis-
criminated against said Elmore.
"Women don't get as much
mentioning as men do, and it's
because they're not in the same
networks. In every professional
network, people move up in these
circles, which in a way disadvan-
tage certain women

Hussein" and that there was a strong
public desire for him to be executed
if convicted.
CNN said Talabani had said the
proceedings would start in the next
two months.
"Saddam Hussein is a war
criminal Talabani said, noting that
he had committed "crimes against
Iraqi people" in Kurdistan as well
as Shiite areas of southern Iraq
and in Baghdad.
Noting that he was a lawyer,
Talabani said in English that he would
have to await the outcome of the trial
process "but the Iraqi people from
now are starting to ask for executing
Saddam Hussein and for sentencing
him for death
Last week, Iraq's planning minister,
Barham Salih, said the chief justice
of the special tribunal in charge of
prosecution in Baghdad had told
him that "within the next few months
Saddam Hussein could be brought
before the court
U.S. forces captured Saddam in
December 2003 hiding in a concealed
hole near his hometown of Tikrit, 80
miles north of Baghdad.
He faces charges including killing
rival politicians during his 30-year
rule, gassing Kurds, invading Kuwait
in 1990 and suppressing Kurdish
and Shiite uprisings in 1991. He was
arraigned in July without defense
counsel and will be tried before a
special Iraqi tribunal.

Cohen is also concerned with

In contrast to past student

RALEIGH, NC (AP) � As high
school students graduate and pre-
pare for the last hurrah of summer,
police officers are getting ready as
well - for the rowdy parties that
draw crowds of underaged drinkers
eager to tap a keg.
State lawmakers are as con-
cerned as law enforcement about
the keg parties and the potentially
dangerous situations they can
create. Legislators are backing a
bill to tag each beer keg with data
about the person who bought it,
which would allow authorities
to track down adults who buy
beer for people who can't legally
buy it themselves.

The law of unintended consequences
Getting back to our
conservative heritage
What is the most hilarious, and
sometimes totally horrific, thing that
can happen to what appears to be a
good idea? The application of the
law of unintended consequences.
Simply defined, this law states
that almost every endeavor by
man, and government especially,
produces unexpected actions,
events, whatever you want to call
them. This is true in economics,
politics, social programs - you
name it - especially when liberals
are involved.
Consider Congress. Action:
Ever since Ronald Reagan became
President in 1980, this country has
been getting back to its conserva-
tive heritage. A Republican has
been President for 17 of the last
25 years. Republicans have won
increasing majorities in the House
of Representatives as well as the
Senate, even when a Democrat was
President. The people have spoken,
and they spoke loudly. Now, as
the gentlemen (and ladies) that
conservatives tend to be, they have
treated the Democrat losers with
respect and deference.
The direct, unintended conse-
quence of this charity to losers has
been the hijacking and maligning
of the Constitution by a very small
minority of Democrats in the Senate
who refuse to accept the public's
decisions at the ballot box. These
left wing radical kooks have flipped
off the American people and decided
that they will do what they want no
matter what the long term damage
will be. If the Republicans had just
treated the Democrats as the losers
the American people have repeatedly
told them that they are, we may not
be facing a Constitutional dilemma.
Another fine example: It
appears that as a result of a decision
by the (liberal controlled) Depart-
ment of Health and Human Services
in 1998, federal funds (i.e. our tax
dollars) provided to state Medicaid
programs had to be used to provide
Viagra for eligible recipients. If
the states didn't, they faced pos-
sible fines or loss of federal funds.
The direct, unintended con-
sequence of this "seemed like a
good idea at the time" decision
became apparent recently when
it was revealed that convicted
sexual offenders (rapists, child
molesters, etc.) in New York had
been receiving Medicaid-supplied
Viagra. Oops. When this was
made public, New York Senators
Schumer and Clinton's immediate
knee-jerk reaction was to support
andor sponsor legislation making
that a no-no. Despite the jokes
from both liberal and conservative
Web sites about the incongruity
of Hillary Clinton supporting
any criminal legislation dealing
with sexual offenders after living
with and supporting Bill, let's step
back and look at this for a second.
I agree that it is a travesty that
convicted sex offenders can get tax-
payer funded Viagra. I was as out-
raged as everyone else when I read
that. But knee-jerk reactions such as
enacting legislation may not be the
best way to go. Liberals constantly
say that you cannot single out a spe-
cific group of people for prohibitive
legislation. It is called discrimina-
tion. Yet here we have two extreme
liberal lawmakers wanting to do just
that. Where's the consistency? And
more important, where wi it lead?
As sure as the earth orbits the
sun, if legislation is passed and
upheld that targets sex offenders,
that will only be the beginning. Lib-
erals being what they are, more leg-
islation will follow targeting other
groups that they don't like (every-
body in the red states perhaps?)
until it will be illegal to disagree
with them about anything. Kind
of like Germany was under Hitler.
Do you begin to see how insidi-
ous unintended consequences can
be? Not only are we dealing on a
daily basis nationally with these
unintended consequences, we
here at ECU are experiencing one
personally right now.
As hard as it may be to believe,
my Liberal Wacko buddy, Peter
Kalajian, has gone on to bigger and
better things in life. It seems he was
one of the group who believed grad-
uation was a good idea. Normally
that would be true, as once a person
gets into the real world the liberal
blinders usually start coming off
their eyes, and they begin to realize
that they were fed a load of garbage
for 16 plus years in school. In this
instance, however, there has been
an immediate, extremely unin-
tended consequence: I am now the
lone columnist for the school paper.
Believe it or not, I have a slight
problem with that. Unlike most
liberals, I believe in the concept
of fair and balanced. So, where
are all you Liberal True Believ-
ers? You know who you are. You
are the ones who mindlessly
attack anybody who dares to dis-
agree with your failed ideas. Your
fellow liberals, and school, need
you! Are you man (or woman)
enough to accept the challenge?
I got this position by writing a
Letter to the Editor and later fill-
ing out an application. Of course,
I was eloquent, intelligent and able
to put more than two (correctly
spelled) words together to form a
coherent sentence. While this may
be difficult these days for people
who came through the public
school system, I'm sure there has
to be somebody who can do so and
wants to give it a shot. Any takers?
If you think you are up to it,
contact the editor of this fine exam-
ple of news dissemination. Go fill
out an application. Take a chance.
Put your money where your mouth
is. Show a little courage. Show
some belief in your convictions.

K6Q from page A3
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police
officer William Irby worked with
Rep. Martha Alexander, D-Mecklen-
burg, to create the bill, which has
been recommended for passage by
the House Commerce Committee.
He said kegs are popular among
young drinkers because they are
inexpensive and contain a lot of alco-
hol. Over the past two years, three
people have died in Charlotte in car
accidents that involved minors who
had been drinking keg beer, Irby said.
"I have to go to someone's
house and tell them they lost some-
one Irby said. "There's no way to
become numb to that, especially
when it's a kid. This is the easi-
est death to prevent. That's why I
became so involved in this
Similar programs have been
put into effect in 25 other states,
including Virginia, Georgia and
Massachusetts. The cost of run-
ning the program for two years in
Virginia was $29,000.
The most dangerous season for
keg parties starts around gradu-
ation and lasts all summer, Irby
said. College kids come home and
are willing to buy kegs for their
younger friends, or parents either
go out of town or buy kegs for their
children themselves.
The parties tend to draw any-
where from 50 to 100 people and,
when police arrive on the scene,
Irby said, the most common - and
dangerous - reaction is for under-
aged drinkers to hop in their cars
and drive away.
"During spring break they have a
lot of free time on their hands Irby
said. "In the summer it's literally every
weekend we are seeing keg parties
Cheryl Jones, who serves on
the state executive committee of
Mothers Against Drunk Driving,
said the bill will likely save lives
and discourage adults from buying
kegs for kids.
"We support keg regulations 100
percent - anything that we can do to
cut back on the alcohol that young
people can get a hold of she said.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Deputy
Chief Jerry Sennett said the mea-
sure would create another means
to punish people who help supply
underaged drinkers.
"We're trying to prevent it
from getting into the wrong hands
Sennett said. "People who sell
alcohol are already held to a
higher standard
The bill would add responsibil-
ity to merchants who sell beer in
kegs. Currently, they must check
the identification of the person
who buys the beer, but the legisla-
tion would require them to record
the buyer's name, address and other
information, then keep that data on
file for three years.
Andy Ellen, a lobbyist for the
North Carolina Retail Merchants
Association, said the group supports
prevention of underaged drinking,
but maintaining the mandatory
paperwork is excessive.
"When a retailer checks the ID
of a person and makes sure that
they are of age and not intoxicated,
and that it is an appropriate sale,
we have done our legal duty Ellen
said. "What this bill is going to do
is place additional paperwork on
a merchant for something that is
not going to have a big impact on
underaged drinking
For example, Ellen said, retailers
could be subject to harsher penalties
than would individuals who provide
the beer to minors. While removing
a tag would be a misdemeanor pun-
ishable with a $50 fine, merchants
who don't fill out the proper paper-
work can be fined up to $500 or have
their liquor license revoked or sus-

Many students thought it was
suspicious that the office has been
under investigation since Novem-
ber, yet no one knew about it.
"If (the investigation has
been going on since Novem-
ber, something is probably
going on said Chris Clement,
senior communication major.
Carter said the ECU commu-
nity has a right to hear from the
university, rather than the news,
when an investigation is under-
way in one of the departments.
"They still need to keep the stu-
dents and especially the parents
'informed about it Carter said.
The possibility that the
department could have been
offering an excess of money to
the students united responses.
"I wish they would do that
Bowen said. "Too bad I'm a senior
Carter said that theory is
unlikely because students need all
the financial help they can receive.
"You can't give a stu-
dent too much because we
need that money Carter said.

What's after'Star Wars?'
With the anticipated release of
Star Wars now in the past, we finally
have a clear view of all the other
films coming out this summer.
Shattering box office records,
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the
Sith officially rang in the start of the
summer season. Bringing in approx-
imately $150 million in its first four
days of release, the final chapter
in the Star Wars saga attempted to
pull the box office out of a 12-week
slump. This time last year, we had
already seen two films that were
going to be on the top 10 gross-
ing films of 2004 list: The Passion
oftheChristandShrek2. So far, we have
yet to see any movie that will be on
that list this year, except for Star Wars.
Now that the hoopla from the
Star Wars camp has calmed down
and the popular Memorial Day
weekend rush has calmed down,
we can finally step back and look
at the other movies that will rival
Star Wars for the number one top
grossing movie of the year. Here are
a few of the biggest releases to look
forward to this summer.
Lords ofDogtown (June 3).
Here's one for the skateboarding
fanatics. A few years ago, a docu-
mentary titled Dogtown and Z Boys
won.the Audience Award at the
Sundance Film Festival, becoming
a popular underground hit once
it hit video stores. It looked at the
beginnings of the groundbreaking
Zephyr skateboarding team in the
1970s. This year's film, Lords of
Dogtown, is a more Hollywood-style
look at the same story. Directed by
Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen) and
starring Emile Hirsch (The Girl Next
Door), Heath Ledger an$l Johnny
Knoxville, this film
has the potential to not
only be great, but also do some
serious and surprising damage at
the box office.
Batman Begins (June 15).
Christopher Nolan's rendition of
the famous comic book character is
not to be mistaken with the series
of four films with Michael Keaton,
Val Kilmer and George Clooney.
Batman Begins is a film that stands
alone from any other film about
the Batman character. This version
is based on a story by screenwriter
David S. Goyer featuring Bob Kane's
famous characters. It shows us how
Bruce Wayne became the guard-
ian of justice for Gotham City.
Christian Bale leads the all-star
cast as the caped crusader. Starring
along side Bale are Michael Caine
(as faithful butler Alfred Pen-
nyworth), Liam Neeson, Morgan
Freeman, Gary Oldman, The Last
Samurai's Ken Watanabe (as the
villain Ra's Al Ghul), 28 Days Later
star Cillian Murphy (as The Scare-
crow) and Katie Holmes (as Bruce
Wayne's girlfriend).
Bewitched (Juno 24). This is
not a remake of the famous televi-
sion series. Will Ferrell stars as Jack
Wyatt, a fallen actor who, in a last
attempt to save his career, decides
to update the famous television
series of "Bewitched" and bring it
back to TV. He casts an unknown
woman named Isabel Bigelow
(Nicole Kidman) to play Samantha
Stephens, the famous witch with
the funny nose twitch. Wyatt,
however, is unaware that his new
star is actually a real witch who is
not looking to get used by this guy.
Michael Caine stars as Kidman's
father, Nigel, in what will be a
very different role than the one he
played in the previous week.
War of the Worlds (June 29).
If any film has a chance of coming
anywhere near topping Star Wars
in box office percentages, Steven
Spielberg's remake of the H.G.
as Ray Ferrier,
a man with two kids
(Justin Chatwin and Dakota
Fanning), who must escape and
fight back against sinister alien
invaders who are out to destroy the
planet. Spielberg has updated this
film with a modern twist and has
it taking place in New Jersey rather
than London. It looks to be one of
the more dazzling films in terms
of special effects that we will see
this summer. Lord of the Rings star
Miranda Otto and Oscar winner
Tim Robbins costar in this terrify-
ing science fiction film.
Fantastic Four (July 8).
After years and years of trying to
get a script and a cast in order, the
famous Stan Lee comic book is
finally coming to life. loan Gruf-
fudd leads the cast as Reed Rich-
ards (Mr. Fantastic) with Michael
Chiklis as Ben Grimm (The Thing),
Jessica Alba as Susan Storm (The
Invisible Woman) and Chris Evans
as Johnny Storm (The Human
Torch). Together, they do battle
against the evil villain Dr. Doom
(Julian McMahon).
The Island (July 22). Michael
Bay is back with another big budget
sci-fi action film. The Island is a
futuristic film about a contained
Utopian society. One of its resi-
dents is Lincoln Six-Echo (Ewan
McGregor), who hopes to be taken
to "The Island the most beauti-
ful, luxurious and the last uncon-
taminated spot on Earth. He soon
discovers that he and the other
residents are actually human clones
whose only purpose is to be used as
spare parts for their original copies.
Lincoln and his new pal Jordan
Two-Delta (Scarlett Johansson)
plan a daring escape before they
are "harvested This sounds very
similar to George Lucas' first film
THX-U38, but not exactly. Djimon
Hounsou, Steve Buscemi, Sean
Bean and Michael Clarke Duncan

usic melting out of speakers everywhere
the'House of Wax'
loundtrack brings new
ames to the party
When the time comes to put
together a soundtrack for a new
Tiorror movie, there are a number of
(tpproaches one can take. A popular
approach, as in the case of Freddy vs.
Mason and Texas Chainsaw Massacre,
Is to put together a collection of the
pest in a genre, usually hardcore rock,
throw in a few up-and-comers and
give the public some music they know
jind some songs to grow on them.
The soundtrack to the new
lovie House of Wax plays with that
approach by mixing some genres
and times, but still inserting a few
Surprise up-and-coming bands.
Uong with some veteran bands
ike The Prodigy, Disturbed, the
)eftones and Marilyn Manson, the
ilbum mixes in some old school
nusic with contributions from Iggy
Pop and the Stooges and Joy Divi-
sion. The result is an energetic yet
eclectic mix of different genres sure
f o entertain - and possibly expand
a music fan.
The point of the album cer-
tainly isn't to introduce the world
to a host of new artists. Some of the
songs on this album date back to
1970, and most of the well-known
groups have several successful
albums under their belts. Rather,
some newer artists get to share
album space interwoven with
established groups and get into the
stereos of some listeners who didn't
buy the album for their name.
It's much like selling a ticket to a
huge concert - you get to open for
and share the stage with big-name
groups and rock some people who
didn't know you existed.
The biggest benefactors from
this tactic are Dark New Day, Stut-
terfly and Bloodsimple. Bloodsim-
ple's contribution, a hard-rocking
tune called "Path to Prevail sits
nestled in the musical intermission
between Disturbed and Manson.
The band's first album, A Cruel
World (released in March on Warner
Brothers Records), and their appear-
ance on this album could likely
bring in some new listeners. Their
contribution makes a case with a
power-driven song showcasing the
voice of lead singer Tim Williams.
Dark New Day and Stutterfly,
on the other hand, haven't even
released their first albums yet. Dark
New Day's Twelve Year Silence and
Stutterf ly's And We Are Bled of Color
won't hit stores until June.
As the last song on the album,
Dark New Day's "Taking Me Alive"
gets to close the album out after
Iggy Pop and the Stooges, The Von
Bondies, Har Mar Superstar and Joy
Division, a distinctively indieBrit-
ish lineup. Although the placement
of this song stands a bit unusually
on the end instead of in the middle
with its genre, the guys still make it
work. The band hails mostly from
North Carolina, and they sport
some big names - Clint Lowery
joined his brother Corey in Dark
New Day after a seven-year stint
with Sevendust and other band
members come to the group from
popular groups like Skrape and Ste-
reomud. Their sound is impressive
also, and they will likely snare some
fans with their appearance.
Stutterfly is luckily nestled in
the heart of the rock lineup between
the Deftones and Disturbed, and
their song "Gun in Hand" literally
serves as a nice bridge between the
two songs. Their singing style is
a mix of soft harmonic voice and
hard driving screaming, fitting
nicely between the hauntingly
soft voice of the Deftones' Chino
Moreno and the guttural, almost
animal wailing of Disturbed front
man David Draiman. It's interest-
ing to hear the transition literally in
mid-song and works out better for
Stutterfly. After all, Disturbed and
the Deftones don't desperately need
the publicity, now do they?
The trick is people won't buy
the album for Stutterfly, Dark New
Day and Bloodsimple - they'll buy
it for some of the bigger bands
that throw in some nice mate-
rial. The Prodigy's "Spitfire" lays
some hard-rocking foundation
for a good album, mixing in some
electronic beats and blending it
like only they can. My Chemical
Romance's "I Never Told You What
I Do For a Living" continues the
energy and gives way to the heart
of the tracks, the rockers. The
Deftones' "Minerva" is already a
well-known song from their 2003
self-titled release, and Disturbed's
"Prayer" came out as the feature
single on their 2002 release Believe.
Along with Manson's "Dried Up,
Tied and Dead to the World"
(originally released in 1996), the
accomplished artists give some
songs for listeners to chew on.
The original House of Wax
came out in 1953, and this one
takes the idea and throws in
some appealing curves, like Paris
Hilton and Elisha Cuthbert (yes,
pun intended). This album does
much the same thing, appeal-
ing to listeners with well-known
groups and then adding some
quality stuff the world will hear
more from in the future. The
music from the movie is full of
power and energy that will take
the hearts and ears of rockers and
punk lovers alike. The rocking
won't stop for a break, either - not
even when those smaller bands
hit the stage.

he-whores and that he is at the very

there is killing those in the upper
ranks of the society.
The Cave (August 26). What's
a summer movie season without
a horror film? The Cave is about a
group of European scientists who
discover an old thirteenth century
Abbey in Romania. They soon
discover that it is built upon an
elaborate system of caves. They
call in a group of American cave
explores to investigate. What they
find is a new species of bloodthirsty
cave dwellers. Cole Hauser, Morris
Chestnut, Eddie Cibrian, Rick Rav-
anello, Marcel Lures, Lena Headey
and Piper Perabo star in the horror

Pirates receive NCAA
regional at-large bid
ECU will face Arizona
State in opening series
Pirate Nation, you can now
breathe a sigh of relief. The ECU
baseball team received an at-large
bid into the NCAA regionals
Monday morning, marking their
seventh consecutive tournament
appearance. Only 11 other Division
I schools can say that, and say it
with pride they do, as parity in col-
lege baseball continues to grow.
A fan of the Pirates surely began
to worry Monday around 11:45
a.m. when the selection show,
which aired on ESPN2, was cruising
through the announcement of the
field of 64.
In the week leading up to the
show, several different baseball pub-
lications had projected the Pirates to
play in one of three different region-
als. Those three were the Geor-
gia Tech regional, the Tennessee
regional or the Clemson regional.
As a fan and a reporter, I watched
as the teams in those regionals were
revealed, none of which was ECU.
Teams like Oklahoma, Creighton
and St. Johns were all getting at-large
bids. I could only think that as each
one of those was announced, our
chances worsened by the minute.
After Auburn received a number two
seed when they were considered to
be a "bubble" team, I decided that
we were through, because the com-
mittee would surely take 11 SEC
teams if the Tigers were a two seed.
So as the show went to a break, I
dropped my head and began to
think of what I was going to write
about for my year-ending story.
ESPN2 comes back from break
and almost immediately begins to
reveal the Arizona State regional.
I, of course, wasn't even paying
attention because I figured that if
three regionals we were projected
to participate in had passed, there
were no more spots for a fourth
Conference USA team.
Ah, the sweet sound of Dave
Revsine's voice finally woke me
from my pity party as he said, "and
the host team Arizona State gets the
number three seed East Carolina
out of C-USA
I silently pumped my fists,
knowing that the Pirates deservedly
had got what they had worked so
hard for throughout the season.
Having to go to Arizona may
prove to be a blessing in disguise,
because surely the Bucs haven't
forgotten the sweep they were dealt
last season at the hands of the Sun
Devils at Packard Stadium. As for
the freshmen who weren't on the
team last year, you can rest assured
that they have been informed.
Oddly enough, Coastal Caro-
lina is actually the No. 1 seed in
this regional. However, since they
do not have the facilities to host a
regional, Arizona State's bid to host
was granted, thus the reason for a
No. 1 seed having to travel across
the country to play.
The Chanticleers will get the
No. 4 seed Running Rebels of UNLV
in game one of the regional. The
Rebels (34-27), who received the
Mountain West Conference's auto-
matic bid by winning the confer-
ence tournament, sport one of the
nation's most explosive offenses,
averaging just over eight runs a
game at 8.2. Sophomore catcher
Justin Tellam leads the Rebels in
home runs with 16. Nine players
are batting over .300, as well as
three batters who have 50 or more
RBI. UNLV will give Coastal a little
more than they bargained for as a
one seed, and an upset is highly
possible, as the Chanticleers are
coming off of a loss in the Big South
Championship game to Winthrop.
Coastal Carolina, the Big South
regular season champion, flaunts
a gaudy 48-14 record, as well as
a convincing 11-5 win over ECU
earlier in the season at the Base-
ball at the Beach tournament. The
Chanticleers also beat national
powerhouses Georgia and North
Carolina on consecutive days
with a 7-6 win over the Jackets
and a 14-5 dismantling of the Tar
Heels.Coastal cakewalked through
their conference season, posting
a ridiculous 21-3 regular season
mark. They'll try to counter the
explosive Rebel offense with stel-
lar pitching. Ricky Shefka anchors
the staff with an 11-2 record. The
Kinston native has compiled a
fantastic ERA of 2.51 in 111.1 IP.
Just as ECU relies on a Costanzo
for help, the Chanticleers also have
a Costanzo who they lean on for
not only offense, but pitching as
well. Mike Costanzo leads the team
with a .388 BA, as well as 15 home
runs and 61 RBI. Oh yeah, he's also
8-1 with a jaw-dropping 1.75 ERA in
51.1 IP and 65 Ks. If you're keeping
your eye on this game - and you

The gymnasium is empty save for
three kids bouncing a ball at the far

Patrick ran fourth for a time until
Sam Hornish Jr Dario Franchitti

On her next stop, though,
Patrick lost all the ground she had

tried to leave the pits.

In the middle of the race,
the handling on Patrick's car
changed and she nearly spun,
much like her first lap of qualify-
ing two weeks earlier. Then she
escaped unscathed from
side-to-side contact with Kosuke
Matsuura while they bat-
tled for 12th on the 131st lap.
Patrick's good fortune appeared
over, though, when the field was
about to take the green flag for a
restart on the 154th lap. She spun
mid-pack, triggering an accident
that took out Tomas Enge, Tomas
Scheckter, Patrick Carpentier and
Jeff Bucknum.
Enge clobbered Patrick's car
broadside, but the damage was
confined to the nose cone and front
wing, a relatively easy fix.
"It just seemed like everyone
was going slow (for the restart)
Patrick said. "So whether they had
checked up at that very second
and I didn't have time to react, I
don't know. It seems weird that I
wouldn't be able to react at a hun-

should because the Pirates will play
one of these two teams - then keep
your eye on Mr. Costanzo, as he has
proven why he's one of the best
two-way players in the country.
The host team Arizona State
opens up with a familiar foe in
ECU. The two teams have met four
times in the last two seasons with
the Sun Devils taking all four, the
most recent being a 10-3 victory
over the Bucs in front of the largest
crowd to ever watch a baseball game
at Clark-LeClair stadium, during the
Keith LeClair Classic. State has been
solid all season, compiling a 34-22
overall record, including a 22-7 mark
at Packard Stadium. The Devils have
nine guys with a batting average over
.300 led by Travis Buck, who is cur-
rently batting at a .388 clip with four
homers and 38 RBI. Jeff Larish leads
Arizona State in home runs and RBI
with 17 and 56 respectively.
As far as pitching goes, it's any-
one's guess as to who is going to start
game one for the Sun Devils. While
they do have three clear-cut starters,
six different players have started
four or more games. The ace of the
staff is Erik Averill. The junior is 8-4
with a 3.84 ERA. He leads the team
in IP (96.0) and Ks (77). The Pirates
have seen Averill twice during his
career, once in their only meeting
of the season in a starter role and in
last year's game one of a three-game
series as a reliever. The Bucs should
have a good idea of what to expect
out of Averill, so I expect the ECU
bats to jump on him early and get
into the Sun Devil pen.
Deliberations are likely still
going on in the Pirate camp on who
to start against Arizona State. While
ECU is undefeated in games in which
T.J. Hose starts, I do not expect Head
Coach Randy Mazey to put a fresh-
man out there to pitch the first game
of the regional. Last year he did, but
let's not forget our opponent in Stony
Brook, who was making their first
ever tournament appearance.
The Sun Devils are a legitimate
title contender, so I expect Mazey to
go with his best big game pitcher in
Ricky Brooks. Brooks has struggled
lately with health problems, but it
hasn't shown on the mound. I can
only speculate, but I have a good
idea it will be Brooks taking the
mound against the Devils.
It's time to put up or shut up. No
one cares about injuries anymore,
so the Pirates are going to have to
take what they have and be ready to
fight for their lives in every game. If
it becomes a contest of who wants
it more, I like our chances.

Wade from page A12
No one at Richards has forgot-
ten Dwyane Wade, and the Heat
star hasn't forgot where he's from
or the people who helped him. This
place means something to him.
These are his roots. So when he
played poorly last week in Game
1 of the Eastern Conference finals
against the Pistons, Wade made
a few phone calls. One to Tom
Crean, his coach at Marquette.
One to his sister, Tragil and one to
Coach Fitz.
"I was on the 17th tee at River
Oaks (Golf Club) when Dwyane
called Fitzgerald said. "It was nice.
I don't tell him anything specific,
but I reminded him that he stunk
up the floor one night against
Thornton High his senior year.
Worst game he ever played, but the
next game was one of his best
Sure enough, after his con-
versations (which included a late
night discussion with teammate
Shaquille O'Neal), Wade scored 40
points Wednesday to help the Heat
even the series, then scored 36 more
Sunday to give the Heat a 2-1 lead
entering Tuesday's game.
"With Dwyane it's about loy-
alty Crean said. "He doesn't forget
the people who helped him
Four years after Wade graduated
from Richards, Porrello got a letter
in the mail from Marquette Uni-
versity. "It was from Dwyane she
recalled. "He wrote to tell me how
much he enjoyed being in my class
and how much it meant to him.
And at the top of the letter he had
written, The NBA awaits
Meet Tragil Wade�Blackman.
She's sitting comfortably in a home
just off the Dan Ryan Expressway.
She's sister to Dwyane Wade. Hero
to Dwyane Wade. And if you're
looking for a person who keeps
Wade as humble as is he talented .
look no further.
When Wade told Tragil he was
modeling Puff Daddy's clothing
line, she joked, "You mean from the
neck down?" When he was named
one of People's 50 most beautiful
people and photographed with
his shirt unbuttoned, she asked,
"What's wrong? Someone forgot to
put buttons on that shirt?"
Tragil is Wade's older sister, the
person who made it her business to
watch over her little brother when
they were growing up in the city
or when he went to live with his
father in nearby Robbins, a tough,
lower-class neighborhood in the
south suburbs.
Fun fact about Wade: His favor-
ite show growing up was "Knight
Rider You know, the talking
car? Loved Michael Jordan, too.
"He even had Michael's walk and
chewed gum like him says Tragil,
letting go an infectious laugh.
Tragil explains why Wade, who
married his high school sweetheart
and has a child of his own, still
listens to his high school and col-
lege coaches.
"It's respect she says. "We
were brought up to listen and
respect others. I'm not talking
about listening to people who are
just older, but those with experi-
ence. Our parents used to say, 'Why
do you think you have two ears
and only one mouth?' He knows
he hasn't reached his maximum
level, so he's still going to listen
and learn
And he always did.
"When I go to coaching clinics
people always ask how you develop
players Fitzgerald said. "I tell them
a kid has to be coachable, and that
means listening to find out what
it will take to get to the next level.
A lot of kids are gifted, but they
don't listen and it hurts their game.
Dwyane always listened. He always
wanted to get better
Rob Jeter, head basketball coach
Mexican Restaurant
$2.95 LIME

at the University of Wisconsin-
Milwaukee, remembers watching
Wade at Richards when he was an
assistant at Marquette. "You know,
Dwyane didn't just work on his
strengths, but he worked a great
deal on his weaknesses in an effort
to improve he said. "He had the
three things every coach wants. He
was talented, he was coachable and
he loved the game
And he held those three gifts
no matter what the situation. A
red shirt freshman at Marquette,
Wade was asked in practice every
day to go against Brian Wardle, "a
tough senior who took no crap and
wanted to see what Dwyane was
made of Jeter said.
"He came in raw and he strug-
gled at first recalled Wardle, now
Marquette's director of men's bas-
ketball operations. "But the most
impressive thing about Dwyane
was he picked things up quickly.
He improved a little each week, and
you could visually see it. His basket-
ball IQ was very high, and he had
the physical abilities to do things
you couldn't teach. But he worked
on being consistent and paid atten-
tion and was quick to realize you
can't take days off. He was always
the best player on our scout team,
and it got harder and harder on me
to go against him
Ask the Pistons if they know
the feeling.
Last summer, the phone rang
at Richards High School. "Dwyane
wanted to know if the gym was
open Kortz said. In came Wade,
still as quiet as he'd always been -
still saying "please" and "thank you"
and signing jerseys emblazoned
with his name for the local students.
Same Dwyane Wade.
"When he gets around people
he's comfortable with he opens
up and shows his sense of humor
said Travis Diener, a teammate at
Marquette. "But he's still the same
guy who first stepped on the floor
at Marquette. He doesn't think he's
one of the best in the game, even
though he is. He doesn't draw atten-
tion to himself. He still wants to go
out and prove himself and learn,
and that's why he calls Coach Crean
and Coach Fitzgerald like any good
player would or any great player
should. He listens to the people
who gave him the best advice
"I really believe he sees himself
as a work in progress
Tragil, Coach Fitz and Crean
like this work in progress. Crean
thinks so much of him that he
established the Dwyane Wade
Legacy of Leadership Award in
December at Marquette. Cele-
brating with Wade that evening
were eight of his Heat teammates,
including O'Neal.
"That's my baby brother Tragil
says with a smile.
A few miles away from Richards
High School, there's a small sign
outside Aspen High School where
Fitzgerald and Tragil teach. "We
wanted to do something because,
after all, this is where his sister and
high school coach are Tragil said.
But just like Wade, it couldn't be
pretentious. The sign couldn't be
enlarged. So in the town Dwyane
Wade's legacy was born, the sign is
small and plain and understated. It
simply reads:
"Have a Nice Summer. Congrats
