Democracy North Carolina, a
non-partisan, non- profit advocacy
organization dedicated to inform-
ing young voters and getting people
involved in the political process, is
appearing on ECU's campus this
summer to promote voting aware-
ness to Greenville students.
Inspired by civil and voting
rights movements in the south,
Democracy North Carolina is
currently focusing on improving
voting procedures here in North
Carolina. The organization cur-
rently has seven full-time staff
members and over 10 college stu-
dents who intern for two months
during the summer from all over
North Carolina.
Ranging from colleges and uni-
versities in the state such as ECU,
UNCW, UNC-Chapell Hill, Elon
and several others, the students
have hands on participation.
Amanda Smith, 21-year-old
rising senior at Meredith College
is one of Democracy NC's summer
interns working locally.
"I think this is an amazing
hands-on internship because you
get to see how the process works
Smith said.
Elizabeth Costello, who also
interns for the organization, said
the flexible hours are ideal for her
and the job fulfills her desire to get
the word out.
"1 joined to be a student intern
because I wanted to learn more
about local politics and practical
ways to get people more involved
said Costello.
The interns regularly walk
around campus handing out bro-
chures and surveys that inform
students about voting rights
and processes.
Peter Walz, community orga-
nizer, said this year, the students
thought of the survey and put it
into action, which has become
successful for their purposes. The
survey helps them interact with the
students and brings up questions
people may have concerning the
voting process.
"It's a way to engage people in
the issues said Walz.
So far, the surveys have shown
many students would vote if same-
day registration were implemented.
These results, once completed, will
be presented to legislation in hopes
of a change in policy that also
includes making the voting process
more accessible to ex-convicts and
out-of-state-residents and the pos-
sible implementation of a same day
voting act.
Walz said past interns have
given presentations to their classes,
state legislatures and organizations
such as the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference to voice not
only their opinions about certain
issues but also of the feedback from
the surveys they administer.
"The goals of the organization
is to have an improved democracy
here in North Carolina, one way to
achieve this is by building a broad
base of volunteers and activist
said Walz.
Each summer the interns decide
on an issue that they want to take
see DEMOCRACY page A2
Downtown Greenville, the heart
of ECU social life, normally tends
to wind down over the summer, but
has suffered an increase of violent
and aggressive activity during these
last few months.
With fewer people frequent-
ing the clubs, downtown takes
on a calmer atmosphere during
the summer months and the local
police report fewer incidents-of
violence. However, this summer,
local law enforcement agencies
have actually reported an increase
in violent incidents occurring in
the downtown area.
The situation was particularly
busy for police over the Fourth of
July weekend, when police had to
block off Fifth Street and forcibly
remove people off the street in an
attempt to maintain order.
Police said loiterers - many
of them underage gang members
who are hanging around outside
of the clubs, blocking the side-
walks and harassing downtown
patrons - are causing the majority
of the trouble.
Over the past few weeks, numer-
ous ECU students, most of them
female, have reported being ver-
bally assaulted and groped while
attempting to enter clubs and
restaurants downtown.
"Me and my friends have quit
going downtown for now said one
female ECU student, who wished to
remain anonymous.
"We're tired of getting
attacked right out in the middle of
the street
Capt. Elizabeth Watkins and Lt.
Jason Sugg, both of the ECU Police
Department, said the situation
downtown is getting progressively
worse and students should take cer-
tain precautions when going out.
"The number of incidents,
especially fights, has definitely
increased said Sugg. "People need to
be careful when going downtown
Watkins and Sugg urge stu-
dents, especially females, to travel
in groups when going downtown
and for one or more people in the
group to have cell phones ready in
case there is trouble.
"It is not a bad idea to have 911
or the police department's number
programmed into your phone
Sugg said.
They also stressed the impor-
tance of arranging for a ride
home ahead of time and to never,
under any circumstance, leave
downtown and attempt to make it
home alone.
"The problem is that people
plan to come out at night, but don't
make plans to get back home later
said Watkins.
"They end up leaving by
themselves, which makes them
easy prey

on and they come up with ideas on
how to get these issues across to the
people who make the rules.
"I think that the youth open
the door so that state legislature
and other organizations will see
that we have an opinion and that
we care said Smith.
Democracy NC's main office is
in Carboro, but they have students
working in Chappell Hill and
Charlotte as well. Walz said the
program has been successful this
summer. Recently 100 surveys were
returned from UNC-Charlotte and
so far, approximately 400 surveys
have been returned at ECU. They
have had 60 students participate
so far in the six years they have
been working.
Walz and the students will visit
the state legislature today and dis-
cuss the survey results, which will
be released next week.
The interns will also hold a
roundtable discussion on engaging
the next generation of voters and
civic leaders. Because of the surveys
that have been issued so far, the
interns will be able to take the infor-
mation that they have accumulated

5th Generation is playing

nitely try to catch this band play,
they are really amazing.
How about that Reggae Band
Sth Generation I can't wait until
the fall semester starts. This is going
to be the band to watch. They are
representing our University right.
They have been playing shows all

Where is the girl that used to

You made the best smoothies every
morning! Please come back!
You all did a story on Shannon
McClintock, her attach (robbery)
and lack of an ECU Alert to warn
other students. My opinion is this,
every time there is an ECU alert,
the attacker is the same: Tall, Black,
Male. What's the point in alerts?
Why not just tell everyone to watch
out for all tall, black, men?
Whoever wrote the rant about
rising freshman attending orienta-
tion last week, thank you! Every-
one, lets try and be a little more
welcoming to the rising freshman
class. Flash back to when you were
attending orientation, now imag-
ine how a simple hello or smile
would have made you felt. The
ranking of upper-and-lower classmen
is pointless in college, especially
since a lot of people at ECU consider
themselves "third year freshman"
"second year sophomore" etc.
Chances are, you will be in some
classes with the freshman. Lets show
our new Pirates and their parents
(who are paying just as much tuition
as our parents) that they are welcome
at our university, have a home here
and did not make the wrong choice
in choosing East Carolina University.
Join me in welcoming the class of
2009. Man I'm getting old!
ECU Parking people should just
grow horns because they are devils.
And they're ugly! Why give me a

charge me another $20 to get a new
pass?? You are out of your mind. I'm
not parking on campus anymore,

In My Opinion
Could London's attacks been prevented?
Terrorist attacks add fuel
to war's fire
KRISTIN MURNANE
OPINIONATED LIBERAL
NORTHERNER
In case you've been living
under a rock for the past week, last
Thursday dozens of people died
and hundreds more were injured by
terrorist attacks in London. Bombs
were planted and detonated on the
city's subway system, known as the
"tube and also on double-decker
buses. It's been said that this was
the worst attack on the area since
World War II.
The scary thing is that it likely
could have happened anywhere.
We've come to the grim real-
ization that no matter how much
we fight back and how much we
think we're protected from another
terrorist attack, as a democratic
country, we will always be a target
for those who don't agree with our
way of living.
I'm from the BaltimoreWash-
ington D.C. area, I'm currently
writing from just outside of Mary-
land's capital city and I ride the
area's Metro and Light Rail systems
on a fairly frequent basis. I cannot
even begin to imagine the damage
that would be done if London's
attack was aimed at one of our
country's mass transit systems. Not
to undermine the importance of
London's rail system, but since I've
never been overseas, I needed some
type of personal reference.
The group known as the
"Secret Organization of al-Qaida in
Europe" has claimed responsibility
for this attack, but it was said in an
AP article a few days ago that little
is known about this organization.
The fact that Osama bin Laden's al-
Qaida has sister groups throughout
the world has again been brought
to the forefront of our minds.
As I was glancing through vari-
ous newspaper articles concerning
this matter, I've read everything
from Japan being the next ter-
rorist target to our government
leaders raising our terror level to
orange. I've been sent pictures of
police officers with bomb sniffing
dogs and machine guns patrolling
D.Cs mass transit system. But if we
think that the sudden emergence
of security officers will protect us,
I think we're sadly mistaken. Our
efforts are reactive, not proactive.
Security at airports was stepped
up after 911 and now security
with mass transit systems is beefed
up after last week's attack. Do we
have to wait for a disaster to occur
before our government decides to
protect us?
I'm not trying to be a pessimist,
but no matter how many troops
our President sends overseas to
fight this "War on Terror these
terrorist organizations can't be
stopped. But with President Bush's
ratings being the lowest yet, this is
perfect timing to get the American
public to again back his war. Our
efforts are focused more in the
Mid-East than on our own country
and its safety.
President Bush is stuttering his
way through a speech about how
he's "trying to make the world a
better place and that "Americans
know what it's like to be attacked
on our own soil We need to
defend our way of live starting with
our homeland, not sending our
help across the world. I understand
that our country is always will-
ing to help others, but while our
attention is focused elsewhere, we
might again (God forbid) become
another target.
In the mean time, let's keep
those in London in our thoughts
and prayers, especially for those
who have lost their lives and their
families. Unfortunately, we can feel
their pain.

Police aware of more gangs In NC
CHARLOTTE, NC - Police across North
Carolina are aware of more gangs and
members than five years ago and are
doing more to combat them, according
to a new study by the Governor's
Crime Commission.
The study counted 387 gangs in the
state with 8,517 members last year, up
68 percent when compared to police
responses from a 1999 questionnaire.
It's not clear how much those numbers
signal a rise in gang membership and
how much is attributed to police better
recognizing gang activity.
Lt. Mark Bridgeman, head of the
North Carolina Gang Investigator's
Association, said the numbers
are conservative.
"Some agencies don't track the data
or don't realize they have a gang
problem he said. "And gang members
don't check in with us when they join
the gang. They don't check out with
us when they leave
More police agencies have responded
to gang-related crimes - which include
vandalism, larceny, drug crimes and
murder - by creating special units,
according to the study. In Shelby, police
have assigned a detective to focus on
gang investigations while deputies in
Iredell County have begun tracking
gang activity, including graffiti.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police -
covering an area that showed a jump
from 15 reported gangs in 1999 to
65 last year - has created a gang
intelligence unit, educated its officers
about recognizing members and
started a prevention program. Gang
detective Joel McNellysaid he believes
the increase in Charlotte's numbers is
as much about gang members moving
into the city as it is about better tracking.
National
President Bush Ignores questions
about Karl Rove In leak case
WASHINGTON - The White House is
suddenly facing damaging evidence
that it misled the public by insisting
for two years that presidential adviser
Karl Rove wasn't involved in leaking the
identity of a female CIA officer.
President Bush, at an Oval Office
photo opportunity Tuesday, was asked
directly whether he would fire Rove - in
keeping with a pledge in June 2004,
to dismiss any leakers in the case. The
president did not respond.
For the second day, White House press
secretary Scott McClellan refused to
answer questions about Rove.
Rove told Time magazine reporter
Matthew Cooper that the woman
"apparently works" for the CIA and that
she had authorized her husband's trip
to Africa to assess allegations that Iraq
was trying to obtain yellowcake uranium
for nuclear weapons, according to
a July 11, 2003 e-mail by Cooper
obtained by Newsweek magazine.
The e-mail is now in the hands of
federal prosecutors who are hunting
down the leakers inside the Bush
administration who revealed the name
of Valerie Plame to the news media.
International
Police raid houses In
northern England
LEEDS, England - The bomber
responsible for last week's explosion
on a London double-decker bus was
believed to be among the 13 people
killed on board, a discovery that led to
raids Tuesday in Leeds, a northern city
with a strong Muslim community, news
reports said.
In a key development in the investigation
into the terror attacks that killed at least
52 people, British soldiers blasted their
way into a modest Leeds row house to
search for explosives and computers.
Streets were cordoned off and about
500 people were evacuated. Hours
earlier, police searched five residences
elsewhere in the city.
Sky News reported that in addition
to the bomber on the bus, attackers
carried explosives onto three subway
trains, and that all four were killed.
Police declined to comment on the
report and have said in the past
there was no evidence of suicide
bombings.

CAROLYN SCANDURA FEATURES EDITOR
Life in balance: Using new food pyramid
Version 2005 has a new
format and emphasis
SCOTTY WILLIAMS
STAFF WRITER
It's every nutritionist and dieti-
cian's favorite polygon. The food
guide pyramid has always been
a standard in nutritional advice,
telling people what and how much
they should eat. One pyramid's
standards worked for everyone
from the athletic jock to the couch
potato. The pyramid didn't care
how much you exercised - it just
gave you a set of standards to follow
for healthy eating.
Now, the three-dimensional
food failsafe has been updated,
and a new pyramid is out to tell the
worldwl�a4e eat. The new guide
comes in sizes and even has steps.
The newest edition of the Food
Guide Pyramid, as released and
maintained by the United States
Department of Agriculture, has
been tipped on its side according to
an informational video on MyPyra-
mid.gov. The new pyramid features
all run top to bottom, where the
old one used to run side to side and
build up. What's more, the food
groups have been color-coded.
Starting on the very left, the
orange colored side of the pyramid
is the grains group. A new recom-
mendation is that half of the grains
you consume should be whole
grains. The typical suggestion is
at least three ounces per day. You
must also find the word "whole"
on the list of ingredients to assure
that you are getting whole grains.
Cereal, crackers, rice and pasta fall
into this group and white bread
appears to be out.
Indubitably, vegetables are the
green group and second from the
left. The new recommendations
encourage that you eat more dark
green veggies, orange veggies and
more dry beans and peas. The
important thing is variation: one
vegetable alone isn't as good as
three or four.
Sitting to the right of veg-
gies are fruits, where once again
variety is encouraged. Any kind
of fruit, whether they be fresh,
frozen, canned or dried, is recom-
mended. Also, as many dieticians
have insisted, fruit juices are not
suitable as fruit servings and in fact
can contain as much or more sugar
than some soft drinks.
Taking up a small yellow sliver
beside the fruits are the oils, one
of the ever-Unpopular members
.th�.JfeQUi4e,ByjV�UU JSfi
always, moderation is the key as
well as knowing your fats. Most of
the oil you consume should come
from fish, nuts and vegetable oils,
and solid fats such as butter, mar-
garine, shortening and lard should
be limited.
The popular favorite, milk,
stays on with the calcium-rich
foods. When drinking milk, you're
encouraged to drink low-fat or
fat-free milk, and if you can't
consume milk because of lactose
intolerance, you should choose
lactose-free sources. Milk is the
identifiable source of calcium that
is preferred.
Beans and meats are the far-
right member of the pyramid, with
the recommendation of low-fat or
lean meats and poultry. If you're
going to eat meat or poultry, it's
preferable to bake, broil or grill it
instead of frying. You should also
vary your choices and have more
fish, beans, peas, nuts and seeds.
Physical activity debuts on the
food pyramid with steps to the
left encouraging people to become
active. The new recommendation
on the pyramid says that activity
should be moderate or vigorous for
at least 30 minutes a day. Walking
briskly, yard work and bicycling at
reasonable tempos are classified
as moderate; while running or
jogging, fast walking, swimming,
heavy yard work and aerobics are
classified as vigorous. As an added
side note in activity, some physical
activities might involve movement
but do not increase your heart rate
and can't be accepted as exercise.

A not-so 'Fantastic' superhero film takes box-office out of slump
One of the worst comic
book adaptations ever
TREVOR KIRKENDALL
STAFF WRITER
The new film Fantastic Four
does not meet the standards one
would expect from such a high
profile comic book superhero
adaptation. It does not meet the
high standards we've become
accustomed to with the recent
success from such great adapta-
tions as Batman Begins, Spider-Man
2 and X-Men.
Fantastic Four is another adap-
tation from superhero creator
Stan Lee. The Spider-Man franchise
is probably the best Wgfeen
rendition of anything from Lee's
catalogue. Hulk was a film that left
so much to be desired when it was
released in 2003. X-Men was a great
adaptation, but its sequel was not.
As for Fantastic Four, comic book
fans have been waiting a long time
for this one. Is this the film the
fans were looking for? No. Come
to think of It, I'm still not sure why
Stan Lee gave the go ahead to make
this film based on the screenplay.
This is the worst screenplay writ-
ten for any comic book superhero
movie in existence.
The film opens with Reed
Richards (loan Gruffudd) and Ben
Grimm (Michael Chiklis) attempt-
ing to convince science giant Dr.
Victor tbh'Doom (Julian McMa-
hon) to use his space research sta-
tion so they can analyze a storm
moving nearby Eaith. Doom is
reluctant, but agrees. This all hap-
pens in the first five minutes of the
film and it happens very quickly.
We don't get a feel for anything,
and before we know it, we're on
a space station that somehow has
artificial gravity.
Also at the beginning, hap-
pening too quickly, is a back story
between Richards and Doom's
"girlfriend Storm (Jessica Alba).
Apparently they have a history
together, but it is only explained
to us in dialogue between her and
Doom. For people like me who do

not keep up with comics such as
this, it's like we've been thrown
into the middle of the story. It was
as though we walked into the the-
ater 20 minutes into the movie.
Nonetheless, everyone goes to
space. The storm Richards wanted
to study is much closer to them
than he anticipated. It hits the
space station and almost kills
Grimm, who was caught outside
when it happens. When they
get back to Earth, all five start to
believe they may have had some
sort of genetic mutations.
An incident on the Brooklyn
Bridge in which Grimm, Richards,
Sue and Johnny show off their new
powers to save lives turns them into
local celebrities. A New York City
television station labels them "The
Fantastic Four
Doom, meanwhile, uses his
new found power for evil. Unfor-
tunately, McMahon doesn't come
off as a very convincing villain, so
when he walks around in a mysteri-
ous fashion, it's more comical than
it is menacing. This is the same guy
who played Christian Troy on the
FX television series "NipTuck
Can you picture him as sinister?
As for the "Fantastic Four well,
they're not all that fantastic. Chris
Evans, who plays Johnny Storm,
has his moments as the comic
relief. Johnny takes all this fame
to his head. And given the screen-
play these actors had to work with,
Evans is actually the most comfort-
able in his role.
The screenplay was written
by Michael France (whose credits
include The Punisher and Hulk),
and Mark Frost (who created the
"Twin Peaks" series with David
Lynch). This is the worst screenplay
based on a comic book ever. I don't
expect much from France with his
lame excuses for scripts from both
The Punisher and Hulk. But from
the man who wrote "Twin Peaks
one of the most mind-bending
television series in history, this
should have been a much better
screenplay.
Creator Stan Lee also had a
say in who directs his comic book
movies. Sam Raimi was an excel-
lent choice for the Spider-Man films
because he had proved himself as a
master storyteller and a master with
the camera.
Will this film rank among the
years best? Not even close. Will this
film entertain just about everyone
who goes in to see it? Just about.
Will there be a sequel in a couple
years? Unfortunately, yes.

Some activities such as casual
walking and light chores would
fall into this category. Children
and teenagers should get a bit more
activity, around 60 minutes every
day or most days.
The biggest change to the
pyramid is the personalization
that now comes with it. The USDA
has come up with 12 different
pyramids and allowances based on
physical activity and how many
calories you should consume per
day. For a 21-year-old male who
exercises 30 to 60 minutes a day,
2,800 calories is the recommended
amount, and specific amounts are
broken down on the MyPyramid
Web site.
Exercise plays a very important
role in the daily life of all people.
For many, food allowances can
change because metabolism is
better in more active people. A
person who exercises vigorously
for an hour a day may not have to
watch his eating as much as some-
one who exercises vigorously for
one hour a month. Now the USDA
has caught up with the times and
issued a personalized pyramid that
will help more people lead health-
ier, happier and, most importantly,
longer lives.

Shauntae Hunt participates in one of the many events held during the competition last week.
Gridiron Bucs compete in
Strongman competition
Golden's ingenuity provides
excitement for Pirates
ERIC GILMORE
SENIOR WRITER
Defensive coordinator Greg
Hudson spied from his Yukon
from a significant distance as his
players were competing on the
practice fields. Instead of naturally
undergoing practice, remnants of
the football team were competition
for bragging rights and pride.
Part of Hudson cringed while
watching highly energetic and
somewhat crazed strength coach
Michael Golden challenge his
player's bodies in a Strongman
competition. The other half of
Hudson chuckled as some of his
athletes were quickly humbled by
the grueling events.
rt "I liked the way they competed
against each other said Golden.
"There were incredible efforts
out there
The competition provided a
measuring stick for the team
undergoing preparation for fall
camp, which starts August 4.
The remaining players who have
stayed for summer school com-
bined, with incoming freshman,
have partaken in daily weight and
conditioning workouts throughout
the summer months.
The event was originally sched-
uled for later this week, but the
players were jawing at each other so
much that the coaches decided to
proceed a week early. Golden, who
has been working directly with the
football team since his hire, com-
bined with the rest of his weight
staff to oversee the event.
In the past, the coaching
staff tried to find the strongest
individual. Because the physical
requirements for a defensive end
and a quarterback are so different, it
is often hard to judge them apart.
To combat the situation,
Golden divvied up the entire squad
into 10 teams of nine players each.
The most prominent seniors were
given captain status as Golden
drafted the teams with players from
each position.
The captains consisted of Gary
Freeman, Guy Whimper, Hunter
Wood, Richard Koonce, Lorenza
Pickett, Shawn Levesque, Chris
Moore, Jermarcus Veal, Jason
Pender and Chris Sellers. The cap-
tains were charged with deciding
which players would compete in
the nine events. It was an important
role because points were given with
each first place finish.
"Coach Holtz and everybody
else is big on this being the senior's
team Golden said.
"If they want to win and do
well, the seniors have to lead. This
is another opportunity for them to
use their leadership capabilities
The nine events included the
Military Press (135 lb.), Weighted
Sled'Run, Sled Push, Weight
Stack, Relay Race (800 meters),
25 lb. Hold, Farmer's Walk, Sled
Pull and the daunted Blackbeard's
Challenge.
The players competed for a
trophy, which strangely resembled
the Captain Morgan logo. The other
teams weren't quite as happy with
their prize as the second-place
finishers earned a pair of socks
while the third-place team grabbed
some purple mouthpieces.
It was one of the many
simple indications that there
is a new attitude among the
team that has finished 3-20 the
past two seasons. Winning is the
goal unlike the past regime that
harked on improvement.
A healthy Shawn Levesque
captained the winning team. His
team included Lance Neisz, Mike
MacDonaugh, Zach Baker, Durwin
Lamb, Van Eskeridge, Reggie
Williams, Wilson Raynor, Wendell
Chavis and Erode Jean.
C-USA Preview: UTEP
Price believes Miners can
win conference title
HON CLEMENTS
STAFF WRITER
For Mike Price and his Uni-
versity of Texas-El Paso Miners,
2004 was a season of change and
success. Price and the Miners face
more change in this year, entering
a new conference - and they hope
the success from last season will
follow them to Conference USA and
� another bowl appearance.
UTEP, which won eight games
in 2004, two more games than
in the previous three combined,
appeared in just its third bowl
game. The Miners were 1-1 in the
two previous appearances, win-
ning the 1967 Sun Bowl and losing
Q to Colorado in the 2004 Houston
w Bowl, 33-28.
UTEP enters this year with a
buzz around El Paso almost foreign
to the campus. Their goal is to
improve upon a second place finish
in the WAC last season and win the
newly formed Western Division of
Conference USA.
"It's definitely different because
last year nobody was looking at us
said UTEP Offensive Coordinator
Eric Price.
"Even game week, teams weren't
saying, 'We need to buckle down,
we're playing UTEP this week This
year is going to be different. We're
not gonna sneak up on anybody.
We need to improve. We can't be
the same team. It's important to
us not to just hit reset, and raise
the bar a little and continue to
improve
The road is an uphill climb,
with the loss of last season's leading
rusher, Howard Jackson, to gradu-
ation. Jackson led the Miners in
rushing last season with 1197 yards
and 10 touchdowns and the team
has not made a decision on which
ball carrier will be filling his cleats
this season.
Senior Matt Austin, sophomore
Marcus Thomas and UCLA junior
transfer Tyler Ebell are all vying for
the starting job. Price believes any
of them can win the job and feels
good about the running back posi-
tion overall. He knows the loss of
Jackson is a tough one to overcome,
but says that the passing game will
overcome any troubles the running
game may have and could set up an
effective ground game.
"Jackson was a big part of our
offense Price said.
"(All the running backs) are
real talented, so we may have to
pick up some flack at the receiver
position
That puts more pressure on
junior quarterback Jordan Palmer,
the younger brother of former Heis-
man winner Carson Palmer. Eric
Price feels like this year will be a
breakout year for Palmer, who is
entering his second full season as a
starter because it is also his second
season under head coach Mike
Price. Now that Palmer understands
the offense a little more, the Miners
look to open things up in the pass-
ing game, and hope Palmer doesn't
revert to the turnover troubles of
his freshman season.
"Jordan understands the offense
real well, and we're looking for him
to really improve Price said.
"We took it slow with him last
year because it was his first year in
our offense, but he will progress
now without a coaching change
and has had more time to learn
offense. His mechanics and throw-

Though his team didn't win,
Lorenza Pickett embarrassed the
competition in the Military Press.
In 60 seconds, Pickett pressed 135
pounds 49 times. To put that in
perspective, try doing 49 jumping
jacks in a minute.
The other slated starter at
defensive end, Shauntae Hunt
impressed despite his disqualifica-
tion for an improper grip in the
Sled Push. The sled's weight was
estimated to be a minimum of 250
pounds. Offensive linemen Gary
Freeman and Eric Graham held
their own in the sled events.
Bryson Bowling and Chris
Johnson both sped through the
800-meter relay. Bobby Good
and James Pinkney won their
respective heats for the Weight
Stack competition.
The most interesting and
grueling event was Blackbeard's
Challenge. It was a Golden
concoction of 20 yards of a crab
walk, tumble roll, tire roll, sled
push and agility cones combined
with a 100-yard sprint.
Jarrett Wiggins, Richard Koonce,
Zach Slate and Jay Sonnhalter
all did well in the event. On the
flip side, without naming names,
a couple of the participant's legs
turned to Jell-O on the return
sprint.
"Everybody did a great
jobGolden said.
"The guy's legs were falling
off and they still had to run 100
yards. Overall, it went better than
we expected. More importantly, no
one got hurt

One thing Palmer doesn't need
to worry about is talent or experi-
ence at wide receiver. With the top
three receivers - Jayson Boyd, John-
nie Lee Higgins and Chris Francies
- all seeing major playing time last
year, Price is high on his receiving
corps, which is led by Boyd.
"Boyd is a big tall kid and is a
real confident aggressive kid and
we're looking to him to have a real
breakout year Price said.
"We've got about four kids that
I would take with me anywhere.
We've got to have one of the best
receiving corps around and they're
all big and fast
Francies enters his year with a
33-game pass-catching streak.
Although the Miners have a
bulk of talent at wideout, their true
talent gems can be found digging
, in the defensive trenches. Junior
defensive end Alex Obomese and
senior linebacker Thomas Howard
lead the way.
Howard was named to the
Bronko Nagurski preseason watch
list for the nation's top linebacker
and Obomese is on the watch list
for the Ted Hendricks defensive
end award. At 6-4, 300 pounds,
Zach West is the run-stuffer in
the middle and eats up blockers
for Howard to break free to get the
backs and for Obomese to get to the
quarterback.
The Miners defense does have
some holes, however. Outside of
Howard, UTEP is thin at linebacker
and very inexperienced in the
secondary, something Price said
they tried to address, but are
still waiting to see how things
will turn out.
"We needed to fill some holes
at linebacker and at corner Price
said, "so we recruited some JC guys.
It just depends on how these guys
pan out
Entering the 2004 season, the
UTEP Miners took in a new head
coach seeking redemption and
improvement upon seasons of
futility. With a new head coach
came a winning season and a bowl
appearance. Entering this year's
season and a new conference, the
Miners are hopeful that their newly
discovered success will carry over
into another winning season and a
possible Liberty Bowl berth.
