SGA ready for elections,
Katrina fundraisers

NEWS EDITOR
SGA will hold elections for
freshman, sophomore, junior
and senior classes on Tuesday and
Wednesday to determine who
will be president, vice-president
and secretary-treasurer of each
class.
They are also holding elec-
tions for positions on the SGA
Senate.
SGA takes the elections very
seriously and expects all can-
didates to adhere to campaign
spending limits as well as other
rules regarding campaign adver-
tising. All candidates were briefed
about these rules at a compulsory
meeting held last Monday.
"We are supposed to go by

the ECU solicitation policy said
April Paul, SGA election commit-
tee chair.
Paul told candidates about
the rules they were to follow
from the end of the compulsory
meeting until the reading of the
election results on Wednesday
at 6 p.m.
According to SGA's election
rules, there is a whole article
devoted to banners and hand-
bills. Article V specifies how
many banners there can be,
where they can go, how big they
can be and how long they can
stay there.
"A maximum number of 15
banners per ticket or individual
candidate are permitted accord-
ing to Article V of the SGA elec-
tion rules.
"The location of each banner
shall be divulged to the Elec-
tions Chairperson no later than
Name: Timothy Darden

Office: Vice President
12 hours before placement as to
determine its appropriate place-
ment
Campaign literature is not
allowed within 25 feet of a poll
during election hours. Paul said
the only physical voting poll is at
Wright Place. However, anyone
can vote in the SGA elections
online.
Paul is expecting voter turn-
out for SGA elections to continue
to rise.
"Last year in the spring, we
had our highest turnout and it
was about 11 percent of campus
Paul said.
On top of location restric-
tions, aspiring class officers have
to watch their expenditures as
well. Candidates for class offices
have to record all the money they
spend on supplies, and their total
expenses cannot exceed $350.
Similarly, SGA Senate hopefuls
Name: Keri Brockett
Year: Sophomore
Office: President
must work under a $150 cap.
SGA forged these rules with
the intent of maintaining fair
elections as well as to make sure
campaigns do not obstruct aca-
demics on campus.
"We have to make sure the SGA
elections don't interrupt the every-
day flow of students Paul said.
She said more complaints are
filed during the spring semester
when more elections are occur-
ring.
There are 17 candidates seek-
ing class officer spots. Some of
them are contested positions
but some candidates wilt run
unopposed.
Kristen Dalton, freshman
international business major,
said she loves listening to stu-
dent ideas and turning them
into action.

eminent and I've held several
leadership positions in student
government said Dalton.
Meanwhile, SGA is also
spearheading projects to help
victims of Hurricane Katrina.
SGA President Cole Jones met
with students from various,
groups last Thursday to discuss
what day thay want to hold
their "A Step Toward Relief"
program to benefit hurricane
victims.
"A Step Toward Relief" will
be a benefit show that features
several entertainers not limited
to, but including, the ECDA tap
dancers, Gospel Choir, SWASH
comedy group and Fun Tyme
Promotions. Fun Tyme Promo-
tions is the group that organizes
Pirate Palooza.
There is still discussion over
when it will occur, but it has been
tentatively scheduled for either
Oct. 22 or 30. The location of the
event is also still being decided.
It could either be done at Minges
Coliseum or Mendenhall Student
Center. It is possible for it to coin-
cide with Midnight Madness.
The student groups involved
wanted to set an example of how aid
events should be done in the future.
"Next time a natural disaster
occurs, we'll have a template to
go by said Jones.
There were also talks of allow-
ing students to donate a dollar
off their ECU OneCard when
they used it on campus and for-
warding proceeds to hurricane
victims.
Through the upcoming elec-
tions and charities, SGA is look-
ing to further promote visibility
and awareness.

High gas prices are a dilemma with multiple variables
Katrina, supply, demand
all factors in scarcity
SCOTT EATON
STAFF WRITER
People are stressed over problems with the gas market.
Gas prices have risen to record
levels throughout the country
and show little sign of dropping
to previous levels. A myriad of
factors have contributed to the
increasing price of oil and, there-
fore, gas at the pumps.
There's a boarded-up gas sta-
tion in the countryside of Dela-
ware that reads "Regular: $2.17
and one can't help to think those
were the good old days. However,
only a few years ago such prices
would have been unthinkable and
would've possibly ignited a riot.
"There are a lot of different
pieces to the puzzle but it mostly
k boils down to a matter of supply
I said John Williams, assistant pro-
n, fessor of political science.
According to Williams,
�the amount being produced is
o steadily and slowly increasing,
but the new global economy has
significantly increased demand.
Of course, politics plays a
large part as well. This is espe-
cially the case with the oil cartel,
the Organization of Petroleum
Exporting Countries.
"OPEC is producing the same
amount with slight fluctuations
Williams said.
There is more oil being
produced in the Caspian Sea
basin, pipelines from there run
through Chechnya, which is
very important to Russia, and
new pipelines to China which
also originate from the Caspian
Sea are stressing the supply,
according to Williams. There
are reductions, however, in
the North Sea and Venezuela
for various political reasons.
"Of course, Hurricane Katrina
recently had a large impact on
supply, but by all accounts, the
pipelines are up and running
Williams said.
New Orleans' economy relies
heavily on oil and when there's a
problem in New Orleans, there's a
problem in the United States.
"Fortunately, we can
weather this but it will slow the
economy down a bit Williams said.
"According to Williams, it may
take a while to get the oil rigs
in the Gulf of Mexico up to full
capacity again, and any delay in
recovery will be a result of that.
"We're not killed, but we're
winged a bit Williams said.
For the time being, there are
no signs of a significant decrease
in gas prices, which has angered
some and not affected others.
"It's not really that expensive. In
Germany, I had a little compact car
that cost $60 to fill up said Craig
Batten, juniorpolitical science major.
' "It hasn't really affected
me here, but I couldn't imagine
having a Hummer - how about a
house payment to fill 'er up
Agreement is hard to find on
pricing forecasts though.
"There are differing opinions,
but many experts say the prices
will stay as they are for a while
Williams said.
There are suggestions that
selling off parts of the U.Ss Stra-
tegic Oil Reserves could help flat-
ten the price of gas at the pumps,
according to Williams.
"If we decided to do this, it
would limit gouging, gradually
increase supply and ease the
pressure as it flattened the price
Williams said.
The U.S. has 700 million bar-
rels of oil in the strategic reserve
- releasing 1.4 million barrels
a day could have a significant
flattening effect on gas prices,
according to Williams.
As with all problems, there will
be experts looking into ways to
avoid future problems with energy.
"My preference is to find a sub-
stitute for oil, but there has been
none found to rival the efficiency
and priceof oil so far Williams said.
There is a reason Why our for-
tunes reside alongside the ups and
downs of foreign producers of oil.
"The problem is it's cheaper
to buy foreign oil for a variety of
technical reasons Williams said.
"Right now it doesn't make
national security sense to be in
this situation but it makes perfect
economic sense

Local
Large marijuana farm found In
Duplin County
WALLACE, NC (AP) - Authorities have
discovered a 10 to 15-acre pot farm near
Wallace, valued in the millions of dollars
and considered the area's biggest
marijuana bust in recent memory.
"I don't recall a bust this big in
southeastern North Carolina in my
time said Sheriff Blake Wallace,
who worked for the State Bureau of
Investigation for 11 years before he
became the Duplin County sheriff
in 2002.
The marijuana recovered Sunday
morning, which weighed in at 4,160
pounds, has a street value of about
$9.9 million, Wallace said, adding that
the numbers were likely to increase
as deputies continue their recovery
work on Monday.
No arrests had been made as of late
Sunday.
The bust was the result of an ongoing
investigation and a tip from a citizen
who called the sheriff's office late
Saturday evening.
Deputies went to the location about
2 a.m. Sunday and said they found
themselves in fields of pot plants,
some as tall as 13 feet. Deputies
found three huts where someone had
lived, probably those tending the pot
fields, Wallace said.
"We found sleeping bags, cook tops,
cell phone chargers and chemicals
to keep insects and deer away from
the plants he said.
Ownership of the land was not known
late Sunday.
"We are hoping to get higher up in
the organization than just those who
tended these plants Wallace said.
"Anytime you can get this amount
of dope off the street, it's a big day
for us
National
Commuter train was speeding
Just before Chicago derailment
that killed two
CHICAGO (AP) - A commuter train that
jumped the tracks near downtown,
killing two people, was traveling
nearly 60 mph above the speed limit,
the acting chairman of the National
Transportation Safety Board said.
Mark Rosenker said Sunday that the
Metra train was traveling 69 mph and
should not have been going faster
than 10 mph when it switched tracks
at a crossover before jumping the
tracks Saturday.
"Sixty-nine miles an hour is very,
very fast when you're dealing with a
10-mile-an-hour restriction he said,
adding the information came from
a preliminary reading of one of the
train's three "black boxes
Investigators also conducted a three-
hour interview Sunday with the
train's engineer. The 41-year-old man
had been on the job 45 days after
completing down six-month training
program, which included at least
some training along the route where
the derailment occurred.
He also had worked for more
than five years as a CSX Corp.
freight train engineer.
The double-decker commuter train
was headed into Chicago from
Joliet on Saturday morning with 185
passengers and four crew members
when its locomotive and five rail cars
jumped the tracks some 5 miles south
of downtown. Dozens of passengers
were injured.
The dead were identified as Jane
Cuthbert, 22, a student at the
University of Illinois at Chicago, who
died on the train, and Allison Walsh,
38, a researcher at the Brookfield
Zoo, who died at a hospital. The train
began to derail as it switched tracks,
striking a steel bridge just beyond the
crossover. Rosenker said the collision
damaged at least one rail car and
likely contributed to at least one of
the fatalities.
The train and the track had just
been inspected Friday, Pardonnet
said. The train signals were working,
meaning the engineer should have
had enough time to slow down,
Rosenker said.
Extensive damage to the train's
undercarriage has prevented
investigators from examining its
brakes, but it appears the brakes
engaged as the train was switching
tracks. It was unclear if the engineer
applied the brakes or if they engaged
automatically, Rosenker said.
The train engineer, three crew
members and dispatchers were all
tested for drugs and alcohol, which is
standard procedure, Pardonnet said,
On Monday, the NTSB planned to
examine radio transmissions from
a control tower and interview a
dispatcher and trainee who were
working in the tower at the time of
the accident. Investigators were also
expected to operate a test train along
the same stretch of track where the
accident occurred to determine what
the engineer observed.
International
German leaders wrestle
over next government after
inconcftftfve election
BERLIN (AP) - Conservative leader
Angela Merkei and the chairman
of Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder's
Social Democrats said Monday they
both had initiated contacts with
potential coalition partners as they
wrestled over what government will
emerge from Germany's inconclusive
parliamentary election.
Merkei urged her rival's party to
"accept that they are not the strongest
party" after Sunday's election and
enter talks on a broad right-left
alliance under her leadership.
But within minutes, the chairman
of the Social Democrats, Franz
Muentefering, said he had written to
other party leaders to invite them to
hold talks on a new coalition.
"I have initiated contact with the
offices" of the other parties, Merkei
said.
She added that she, like Schroeder,
would refuse to hold talks with the Left
Party - an alliance of ex-communists
and former Social Democrats angered
by the chancellor's efforts to trim the
welfare state.
Muentefering said any linkup between
his party and Merkel's would be
without Merkei as chancellor.
"The message was clear: this
country does not want Mrs. Merkei
as chancellor he said.
Voters denied a majority to both
Schroeder's outgoing government
of Social Democrats and Greens
and Merkel's preferred combination
of her Christian Democrats and the
pro-business Free Democrats.
As Germany's benchmark stock
market and the euro dropped amid
gloom over the muddled outcome,
leaders of the main parties met in
Berlin to plan their next move.
Official results showed Merkel's party
and their Bavarian sister party, the
Christian Social Union, winning 225
seats, three more than the Social
Democrats. The Free Democrats got
61, the Greens 51 and the new Left
Party, an alliance of ex-communists
and former Social Democrats
alienated by Schroeder's efforts to
trim the welfare state, 54.
Those results were based on counting
from 298 of 299 districts; voting in the
final district, in the eastern city of
Dresden, has been delayed until Oct
2 because of a candidate's death.
Schroeder refused to back off his
claim to form a new coalition, saying
that his party "has made clear its will
to lead this country in government
"Our task is to implement this declared
will of our whole party, and we will do
that he told cheering supporters
in a brief appearance at the Social
Democrats' headquarters. He did
not elaborate.
ECU honors school leaders for research efforts
Four professors
recognized for their work
ZACK HILL
STAFF WRITER
ECU has presented the 2005
Achievement for Excellence in
ResearchCreative Activity Award
to four of the university's top
professors.
Joseph M. Chalovich, pro-
fessor of biology and molecular
biology, and G. Lynis Dohm,
professor of physiology, were
recipients of the University Life-
time Achievement Award. Festus
Eribo, professor in the School
of Communication, and Vu
"Frank" Yang, associate profes-
sor of chemistry, were recipients
of the Five-Year Achievement
Award.
Chalovich has been a part
of the Brody School of Medicine
since 1984. He has delved deeply
into cardiovascular diseases and
muscle contraction control. He
has conducted research on heart
disease by cloning genes that
make proteins and then placing
them into rabbit muscle to study
the tissue.
Chalovich has also
studied 2 protein that regu-
lates smooth muscle contraction
and is crucial to cardiovascu-
lar contraction and problems
like hypertension. A scientist
in one of his projects discov-
ered a new protein, Fesselin, by
accident. Fesselin is a protein
found in chicken that is related
to proteins that are known to
have links to cancer and kidney
disease.
"I think it is important that
this award not be seen as a
personal achievement but as a
collaborative effort Chalovich
said.
"This work involves a lot of
technology, and you have to have
people with many different areas
of expertise
In particular, Chalovich was
grateful for the assistance of
MechthildSchroeter, Boris Gafu-
rov, Bernhard Brenner, Leepo Yu
and Yi-Der Chen.
Dohm was the ninth faculty
member hired in ECU'S new
School of Medicine in 1972.
"It was exciting to be a part
of the new school and see it grow
and mature into the academic
and medical unit it is today
said Dohm.
Dohm's research involves
investigating the metabolic
changes that occur in muscles in
response to exercise and disease
states such as diabetes. Obesity
and diabetes are of special con-
cern, and Dohm has collaborated
with scientists in the Human
Performance lab and the Depart-
ment of Surgery.
Dohm studies patients who
are very obese and lose weight
after gastric bypass surgery. Many
of these patients become non-
diabetic after they lose weight.
Dohm's work has been in
numerous publications and other
scientific works dozens of times.
He received the Citation Award
of the American College of Sports
Medicine in 1998 and the Clini-
cal Research Award from the
American Diabetes Association
in 2002.
"The Lifetime Research
Achievement Award is
a special honor for me because
it is given by the faculty, who
choose the award recipient
Dohm said.
Eribo has been a professor
at ECU since 1989. He is one
of the leading scholars in the
nation in the field of African
mass communication. He has
published five books on African
communication and media and
serves on the editorial board of
Ecquid Novi, based in South
Africa, and The Journal of African
Communications, based in the
United States.
He has also contributed to
various books, articles and con-
ventions. His most recent book
focuses on the development of
literature and how to use it in
African nations.
Seventy percent of Africans
live in rural areas. With this
much of the nation devoted to an
agrarian society, communication
can be sparse. Means of commu-
nicating ideas and technologies
are an important part of Eribo's
research.
"It is only by going to Africa
do you realize that it's not the
fault of the people they're not
using technology" Eribo said.
"How do we reach such
people? How can we communi-
cate ideas and technologies?"
Eribo began his studies in
Russia but was forced to leave
with the collapse of the Soviet
Union. In 1998, Eribo took 13
ECU students on a trip to Russia.
He also frequently travels to
Europe and Africa, including his
home country of Nigeria.
Yang is one of the leading
researchers in the world in the
area of sub-critical water, and
his work receives international
attention.
"Basically, what we do is use
water but water under very high
temperatures or high pressures
said Yang.
"This water does not behave
as normal water, but like organic
solvents ,
Organic solvents are a big
part of the medical and scientific
fields. Scientists use the solvents
to extract organic species from
soil and sediments, as well get-
ting natural products such as
medicinal herbs. The solvents are
also used in medical procedures
like chromatography and blood
samples and are common in the
pharmaceutical industry.
The problem with these sol-
vents is that they are expen-
sive and also hazardous to the
environment. In fact, the cost
of cleaning up the solvents can
exceed the cost of the actual
solvent itself.
"The number of organic sol-
vents consumed around the
world is huge Yang said.
Sub-critical water can take
the place of the solvents. Since
water is abundant, the cost would
be substantially lower.
Even more importantly, said
Yang, sub-critical water is not
toxic like organic solvents since
it comes from water. Hopefully,
sub-critical water could be used
to decontaminate areas polluted
with toxic compounds and pes-
ticides.
Yang, who came to ECU in
1997, has been the recipient of
numerous awards, including the
UNC Board of Governor's Award
for Distinguished Teaching in
2001. He has written articles
for research publications, book
chapters and has chaired several
conferences in nations around
the world.
"I feel good with what I'm
doing Yang said.
"I'm doing something that is
good to the society, and I can see
the impact and that it's helping
society.
The researchers received their
awards in August.

A cold truth to cold medicine
State governments
crack down on
pseudoephedrine sales
EMILY JORDAN
FEATURES STAFF WRITER
Soon you may have to go the
pharmacy to purchase your cold
medicine.
North Carolina is just one in
a growing number of states that is
battling vith methamphetamine
users and the key ingredient in
methamphetamine is pseudo-
ephedrine, which is the primary
drug in cold and allergy medicines.
State lawmakers and law
enforcement officials believe they
can tackle the rising methamphet-
amine problem by issuing restric-
tions on pseudoephedrine sales.
If the pending law goes into
effect, consumers will have to
get their cold medicines from a
pharmacy and show a valid iden-
tification. Their information will
then be logged and accessible to
pharmacists, the Drug Enforce-
ment Agency and other state and
law enforcement officials.
"They need to know a person
who comes in and buys 10 boxes
of Sudafed is not a big family
with a bad cold said Attorney
General Roy Cooper.
Since the state law against the
over-the-counter sales of pseudo-
ephedrine, the meth lab seizures
In Iowa have decreased by 75
percent. Oklahoma has seen a 39
percent decrease.
While methamphetamine
abuse in North Carolina is not
as common as it is in the west-
ern part of the United States,
there is a rapid growth of meth
labs springing up around the
state. The first meth lab was
reported in North Carolina in
1999, and there's been an increas-
ing number since.
Methamphetamine, or "speed
is a synthetic drug that dangerously
affects the central nervous system
and the manufacturing of the drug
is even more dangerous because
the fumes can harm everyone in
the vicinity of its production. In
Watauga County, North Carolina,
a fireman's lungs were seared on
the scene of a meth lab explosion.
The toxicity of the manufacturing
process can cause a neighborhood
to become a chemical wasteland.
Imagine the affect of the fumes to
a young child.
Around the country there are
angry reports about state restric-
tions on cold medicine sales. Each
state bears different restrictions
because of different problems
with methamphetamine abuse.
It is inconvenient if the phar-
macy is closed when you need
your name brand Sudafed, Clari-
tin-D or NyQuil but there are
other FDA approved alternatives
that have other ingredients in
them that are just as effective
as pseudoephedrine and are not
sold behind the counter. There
are no cures for colds anyway.
"The drug stores should sell it
(cold medicine at the check out
counter instead of at the phar-
macy said Brittany Lehman,
sophomore merchandising major.
There are many solutions to
alleviate the hassles derived from
the anti-meth proposal. Should
individuals want to be heard,
they should speak out and work
with local and government offi-
cials to find a solution that effi-
ciently serves everyone's needs.
Uninformed complaints are only
a waste of breath and energy.
There are a number of states
that have this problem to a much
greater magnitude than North
Carolina. States like Oregon, the
first state to ever prohibit the
sale of over-the-counter meds
containing pseudoephedrine,
has already passed a law that
will require everyone to provide
a prescription for their cold and
allergy medication. The trouble
with the restrictions in Oregon
is now there are great costs to
having a cold.
Another inconvenience more
close to home is that the price of
cold and allergy mediefnes are
expected to increase because of t he
extra care the drugs will receive
sitting on a pharmacy shelf. How-
ever, the drugs are better behind
a counter than in meth labs.
It seems that the developing
laws against pseudoephedrine
sales will affect everyone through-
out the country. Some people are
concerned about consumer liberties.
"If it's cold medicine restric-
tions for our protection, then
I don't really mind said Trey
Salacki, freshman history educa-
tion major.
Our freedoms would be jeop-
ardized if methamphetamine
production did not affect inno-
cent bystanders.

Our View
Vioxx, Celebrex and
Aleve questioned for
heart damage
In a recent court case in Atlantic City, NJ a Dr.
Benedict Lucchesi testified in a Vioxx product
liability trial. Vioxx is a painkiller prescribed to
reduce the inflammation pain, generally caused
by arthritis. Lucchesi testified that intermittent
use of Vioxx or even a day's use, could be
enough to cause a heart attack.
According to news.yahoo.com, "Vioxx breaks
down so slowly in the body that it takes about
85 hours to clear out of the blood said Lucchesi,
a professor at the University of Michigan who
helped develop the first pacemaker.
"Based on the science, there's every reason
to believe that a single dose, multiple doses,
whatever, can lead to an adverse event
Vioxx was launched on the market in May 1999
and pulled in September 2004 by Whitehouse
Station-based Merck after their own research
indicated that after 18 month's use, the drug
doubled the risk of heart attack and stroke.
Frederick Humeston, a 60-year-old postal worker,
had a heart attack after only two months of taking
Vioxx and is now suing the maker of the drug, claim-
ing it caused his heart attack. The maker of the drug
claims that Humeston's condition and sedentary
lifestyle is what caused his heart attack.
Celebrex is another arthritis drug that may be
taken off the market for causing heart attacks
or strokes. The painkiller Aleve was even put in
question earlier last year. It has been said by
medical professionals that these medications
should be taken in moderation and if used
properly, there should be no adverse side effects.
It has also been proven that some abuse the
drugs by overdosing, thinking one more won't
hurt. Obviously that is not the case. Anyone
taking these drugs should be aware of the side
effects and always read the labels provided on
the side of the medicine bottle.
People taking these drugs should be aware of
their physical life style, as well as their medical
conditions before taking these drugs. Any person
with previous cardiovascular or cerebrovascular
conditions should not be taking these painkillers.
Those prescribed the medications should also
seek counseling from their local pharmacist before
taking them. Please research and be well informed
on any medications that you decide to buy over the
counter or are prescribed by a doctor. This is one
place that the "more is better" rule, doesn't apply.

Liberals blamed for hurricane, global warming
7 May Have Been Wrong
About Global Warming"
TONY MCKEE
CONSERVATIVE CORNER
in the past, some loyal readers have
directed email responses to my col-
umns to our Sports Editor, Tony Zoppo,
instead of yours truly, Tony McKee.
While young Mr. Zoppo is undoubtedly
flattered to be mistaken for me, he gets
enough comments about his own work.
In light of that, and being the nice
guy that I am, I promised him I would
do what I could to ease his burden by
giving our readers some options.
For those of you who do not wish
to direct your comments to our Editor
at editor@theeastcarolinian.com or
post your comments online at www.
theeastcarolinian.com, I have set up
a special email account just for reader
responses and comments. The address
is ConservativeCorner(abww.com. Any
of these will ensure your thoughts get
to the correct person and, more impor-
tantly, will allow our Sports Editor to
concentrate on sports.
Now, let's get to the important
stuff.)
It occurred to me last week that
I may have been wrong about global
warming, especially as it relates to the
Atlantic. I am now willing to concede
that rising temperatures in the Atlan-
tic over the past few years are directly
related to human activity. I am also
willing to concede that the temperature
rise has resulted in more and stronger
hurricanes in the Atlantic and Carib-
bean. And after much research (a
couple of hours over a 2 week period) I
can now unequivocally state that this
warming is due to air pollution on a
massive scale and identify the main
source of the problem: Washington,
D.C.
Specifically, Liberals and posturing
politicians belching hot air, anger and
pompous rhetoric.
Wait! Before you ball the paper up
and toss it away in anger and disgust,
or start laughing like you are high on
pot, 1 have empirical evidence that can
prove my case. Read on.
A study by researchers at the Geor-
gia Institute of Technology and the
National Center for Atmospheric
Research that came out in last Friday's
(Sept. 16) edition of Science, revealed
that the number of Category 4 and 5
hurricanes in the North Atlantic has
practically doubled since 1990. The
study also showed that the number,
duration and intensity of North Atlan-
tic hurricanes has particularly increased
since 1995.
Given these facts, it is clear to any
right thinking person that Liberals and
politicians in D.C. are to blame for not
only the heating of the Atlantic but the
increased intensity of the hurricanes.
How did I come to these conclusions,
you ask? Let's look at the history.
The year 1990 was the kick off of
the Presidential election of 1992. That
is when William Jefferson Clinton
came to the forefront of national poli-
tics. The Democrats were ambushing
President George H. W. Bush on taxes,
conveniently crippling his chances for
reelection. Clinton (Bill, not Hillary) was
elected President In 1992 and the scan-
dals, failed social tinkering, suspicious
deaths and the Liberal justifications and
accusations began in earnest. Transla-
tion: the hot air really began spewing.
That explains how things started in
the early 1990s. We don't have to look
too far to explain the increase from
1995 on either.
In 1994 the Republicans won a
majority in the House of Representa-
tives and the Senate for the first time
in a generation. When the "Contract
with America" was introduced shortly
afterward, into 1995 and beyond, we
heard from the Liberals and Demo-
crats that Republicans were going to
"starve (fill in the blank: old people,
poor people, children), destroy Social
Security, poison the (fill in the blank:
water, air, land, food), reverse Roe v.
Wade, etc, etc.
Still not convinced? Let's look
at this year's hurricane season then.
Even you Doubting Thomases should
see the light after this. We'll take it
chronologically.
1. The hurricane season started
in June. Rumors were circulating that
Chief Justice Rehnquist or Sandra
Day O'Connor would retire from the
Supreme Court. The rhetoric from
Liberals builds. Two Tropical Storms
form in June.
2. Justice O'Connor announces her
retirement on Friday, July 1. The Liberal
machine gets organized over the weekend
and cranks up for the Sunday talk shows
(July 3). Tropical Storm Cindy forms that
day. Monday, July 4, even though it was
a national holiday, the pontificating and
arrogance of the Liberals increases. Hur-
ricane Dennis forms this day.
3. As the hot air continued flowing
from Liberals during July, Hurricane
Emily formed. She wreaked havoc
during her life from July 10 - 21. Emily
hit Cozumel and the Yucatan Peninsula
on July 18 and then weakened.
4. On July 19 President Bush nomi-
nated John Roberts to the Supreme
Court. The Liberal hot air and attacks
now increased exponentially. Emily
once again became a major hurricane
and slammed into Mexico with 125
mph winds.
5. During the remainder of July and
August the Liberals and Democrats kept
up the attacks on John Roberts, with
ever increasing intensity. During this
same time period eight (that's right,
eight) Tropical DepressionsStorms
Hurricanes formed, including Hurri-
cane Katrina.
6. After the devastation of Katrina,
with all the finger-pointing and blame
shifting, Hurricane Maria formed Sept.
1. As the rhetoric continued hurricanes
Nate and Ophelia formed on Sept. 5 and
6, respectively.
7. Judge Robert's Judicial Hearing
began Sept. 12, with all the political
hot air that entailed. Coincidentally
(?), Hurricane Ophelia struck North
Carolina that same week.
8. With all the buildup of noise
and ideology pollution, hot air and
bad karma from Washington last week
is it any surprise that Tropical Storms
Philippe and Rita formed Saturday,
Sept. 17.
There you have it - irrefutable, sci-
entific, correlated proof that Liberals
are the cause of Global Warming.
Now that we know this, we have
no need for the draconian restrictions
of the Kyoto Treaty or any of the other
suggestions that are floating around out
there when the fix is so easy. All that
is required is for Liberals to keep their
mouths shut and Global Warming will
cease to exist.
Oh Dear God, we're doomed!
In My Opinion
As summer cools down, autumn's warmth takes over
(KRT) � It's unmistakable now.
The odd slant of morning sunlight,
the throaty cawing of crows, the olive-
drab leaves that used to be supple and
velvety-green, all point to one thing:
Our languid hot days are at an end.
Summer, a season when lethargy
becomes respectable, is my favorite
time of year. The warm hours and days
have a way of blending together seam-
lessly, convincing us that every day will
be like those at hand.
The lingering summer twilight, set
to a score of whirring Insects, plucks
out even taller family tales and secrets
from Southerners who've settled on
porches to talk! Only transplanted
Yankees and heat wimps could forsake
storytelling in the glorious summer
dusk for the sterility of air-conditioned
living rooms.
That's when winter seems like an
ancient concept, a distant, vaguely
unpleasant memory. Then autumn
arrives to ease us into cooler days.
Every year, when the last hurrah of
Labor Day has sounded, 1 find myself
in denial for most of September, a fall
month that effortlessly camouflages
itself in the cloak of ideal summer.
It fools us - at least on days when
hurricanes aren't spinning nearby
- and lulls us with startlingly blue skies,
warm sunlight and air so crisp you
can practically bite it. We women kid
ourselves, if only for a while, that we've
won the hair-vshumidity battle.
But even as September plays practi-
cal jokes, autumn's distinctive signs are
everywhere.
Students wait for the bus wearing
stiff new jeans and stiffer smiles, or
gather in clusters on college campuses,
hauling backpacks swollen with new
textbooks, chattering like magpies
about professors and future exams.
Shoppers who moved with all the
haste of molasses last month now
stride briskly up the sidewalk into
malls. Window displays of coats and
boots have supplanted bikinis and
flip-flops.
With summer vacations behind
them, bleary-eyed morning commut-
ers seem to have suddenly tripled in
number.
And the beach, which two weeks
ago bloomed with striped umbrellas,
has been stripped bare of tourists.
Hardy locals brave the sting of sand-
laden breezes to sneak illicit sundown-
ers in their beach chairs, or to examine
the shells, kelp and occasional horse-
shoe crab churned from the deep.
Even the sun, which drifted lazily
down to end summer days, seems to
be restless, diving toward the horizon,
impatient for nightfall. Post-work runs
leave joggers groping for the keyhole
in the dark.
There is a certain mournful beauty
to autumn, its rare colors in Tidewater
glowing like fractured gems amid the
pines and live oaks, a reminder of the
inevitable decay that accompanies life.
And when the gray, windy days of
fall finally blow in and rain pelts the
roof, no one needs an excuse to yank up
the blanket and stay in bed 10 minutes
longer. Make that a half-hour.
Me, I dread winter, even our mild
version, with its cold toes, chilly fingers
and ice-pick winds. Not a January day
goes by that I don't long for the warm-
shower air of June and July.
Fall may be a precursor to what's
around the corner. But we can at least
enjoy a final splendid flame-out before
the damp icy air of winter invades our
bones.
Pirate Rant
Learning my periodic table
of elements, all 109 of them and
every detail that goes with each-
Tom Lehrer style - since I'm going
to be in all those real life situations
where 1 won't have a table to refer
to when I need to look up a fantas-
tic element. You know, like when
it's crunch time and I'm racing
the guy in the pharmaceutical
company right next door to turn
in my last minute write-up to the
patent office. I mean I certainly
won't have any time to be looking
up a periodic table then. And of
course, the FDA would approve
of my study and not a soul would
suffer from the crazy medication
I just made. Cause that's how real
life works. Like, duh. By the way,
I'm not even interested in phar-
macies or medicine anymore. In
fact, I've changed my career goal
altogether: I'm officially majoring
in whatever it takes to be a poultry
engineer. I'm sure there's less than
109 ways to raise a chicken.
Hey McKee, I noticed the
cast on your arm when you were
walking from class. I suppose
you're going to blame that on the
liberals too, huh?
Haha! I'm glad your party
got busted!
BEWARE Pirates Place Apart-
mentsthey told us that we could
pay $50 for this "holding lease"
and if we changed our minds
within 2 weeks that we would
just forfeit the $50 bucks. We for-
feited the $50, and then a whole
year later we find out that they
turned us in to the credit agency!
Me and my four friends now are
suppose to pay back a total of
$12,000! Way to take advantage :
of some new students!
To you students who hoot and
holler in Wright Plaza while I'm
try ing to teach my class in Rawl. We
are human beings, not monkeys, so
lets begin acting that way.
If you live in the dorms please
don't just let random people come
in behind you! I know it gets
weird asking who they are and if
they even live on campus but for .
everyone's safety - please do so!
Hey, Tony. I'm a liberal, and
I love It!
I would like to respond to the
person who made the unjusti-
fied statement about the African
American Hurricane Katrina vic-
tims. You don't know what type
of financial situation they were in
or what circumstances kept them
from evacuating before the hur-
ricane. And I have never heard
of people having to suffer during
a natural disaster because they
were poor. Also, 1 don't recall
hearing anybody say that it is
white people's fault that African
Americans are suffering in Loui-
siana. Whoever's fault it is really
isn't an issue. The issue should
be to do what we can to help the
victims of this hurricane. So
think the next time before you
make such a bold and rude com-
ment about something you obvi-
ously don't know much about.
Can we chill out on the flyer
war? Just because you don't like
my organization or band doesn't
mean you have to tear down my
flyer. Stop being rude and real-
ize that everyone can have equal
wall space.
President Bush needs to
resign! It is our duty as citizens
to realize the horrible leader-
ship our country is enduring.
Enough is enough. He could
never really identify with any of
the victims of this horrible flood
(except poor Trent Lott). This is
a time for action, and I for one
am ready and willing to accept
change. Just say no to Bush! I
am not being anti-American by
saying that. I am expressing my
rights, according to the Constitu-
tion we have not only the right,
but the responsibility to save
our country from this spoiled,
war-mongering, buffoon! Don't
pretend to support America by
backing the President - actually
support this country by backing
its people. This country was born
"of the people, by the people, and
for the people and we need to
remember the PEOPLE!

A Double Loss?
Kirstie Alley graces the cover
of People magazine's issue
hitting newsstands Friday. The
once X-large star of Showtime's
"Fat Actress" is finally in charge
when it comes to her weight,
with claims of a 50-pound
reduction from her frame that
once held somewhere north
of 200. "When I got fat, I was
being stupid. It was a little bit

Alley told People. Now a paid
endorser for Jenny Craig, Alley
says the proof is in the pudding,
or lack thereof. Following the
Craig program of 1,200 to 1,500
calories a day, she is four dress
sizes smaller. Unfortunately,
while dropping pounds, Alley
thinks her chances to continue
'Fat Actress" also fell. "I think
(the network execs) have great
concerns with me not being

Senior Advice: Slack not as a freshman

A Senior in a class of
Freshmen
KRISTIN MURNANE
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
Seniors. We've worked hard
for the last few years to get to
this point. We're finished with
our majors and we've developed
friendships with the familiar
faces we've seen in class over
the years. We've advanced our
knowledge, we know how to
prepare for tests, we've adapted
to taking notes for professors who
talk too (ast, but most impor-
tantly, we've matured.
Imagine being in a class full
of teenagers with none of these
skills. Welcome to my world.
Last spring when registra-
tion rolled around, I realized
I was about finished with my
major, so in order to bump my
GPA up a little bit, I decided to
grade replace the classes that I
did poorly in three years ago.
At first I thought "this will be a
piece of cake but now that we
are almost halfway through the
semester, I realized these classes
full of people who have just
completed high school is testing
my patience.
Every Monday, Wednesday
and Friday I experience pure
agony.
I walk into my Introduction
to Political Science class to find
girls dressed to impress in their
best blouses and skirts and I'm
overwhelmed by the smell of
dorm-living boys who for some
reason have refused to shower for
three days.
Class starts and I attempt
to pay attention and take notes
when a group of girls sitting
behind me don't realize that class
is for learning, not giving your
friends a recap of Saturday night.
Let me document the conversa-
tions going on behind me.
"Like, oh my God, I was like
so wasted this weekend and like,
I met like the cutest boys oh my
God and then I passed out
I love sitting in a class for the
second time and hearing people
talk about their bad habits while
the professor is talking about
the Constitution. Oh if only
your proud parents could hear
you now.
After turning around and
glaring at these girls on a few
occasions, I hear one of them
snicker "what is her problem?"
I'll tell you what my problem
is. I, along with many of my
peers, actually go to class to learn
because we would like to make a
future for ourselves other than
getting a liver transplant.
Needless to say, I got very
little out of class that day.
So I waltz into my next class,
Introduction to Sociology, to
witness girls saving seats for
their friends. Yes, that's right
saving seats.
But wait, it gets worse. We
introduce ourselves to our neigh-
bors and I'm paired up with a 17
year-old boy who tells me that
I'm old. I tell him I'm an editor
for the newspaper and he looks
at me like I have lobsters crawling
out of my ears.
Every Friday, this professor
tells us to have a safe week-
end and don't go out drinking
because we're all under 21 and
underage drinking is illegal. It's
at this point where I raise my
hand and say, "Ma'am, while the
rest of the class might be under-
age, I for one am able to legally
drink
After class a handful of kids
came up to me asking if I could
buy them booze.
This is my life for two hours,
three days a week. Although
many kids don't show up to
class (another mistake I made
three years ago), those who do
are immature and obnoxious.
Although I say that now, think-
ing I wasn't that way a few years
back, but I know that all of us old
geezers on campus had a streak of
immaturity at some time in our
college tenure.
The bright side of taking
freshman classes as a senior is
that not only have you most
likely already learned these topics
in other classes you've taken over
the years, but the professors go
over things so slowly in order for
freshmen to "adapt
So a word of advice to any
underclassmen who might read
this: get your priorities in line
and don't put drinking above
class work, or else in a few years
you'll be in the same hellish situ-
ation that I'm in.

Know what to say: ECU professor writes book
A word a day, keeps the
doctor away
MEREDITH STEWART
SENIOR WRITER
Dr. Steven M. Cerutti has
been a very popular professor at
ECU since he began his teaching
career. After graduating from
Duke University in 1992, Dr.
Cerutti came to ECU and started
a Classical Studies program in
the Department of Foreign Lan-
guages. Before he got here there
was nothing in the department,
literally. In his first year he
wrote more than 15 new course
proposals and re-designed the
Latin curriculum and introduced
Ancient Greek.
When he wrote the course
Classics 1300, Greek and Latin
for Vocabulary Building, he
thought it would be a great pro-
gram for the class because every-
one is interested in words. Ever
since grade school he has been
studying and teaching words, so
opening this class was something
Dr. Cerutti dreamed of. Fall of
1994 was the first semester the
class was taught with only 14
students enrolled. He amazed
his students with both funny
and naughty stories from Roman
and Greek mythology, and cap-
tured their minds with his true
knowledge and energy about
words. The next semester he had
60 students, then 90 and now his
class quickly closes with about
120 students.
"Dr. Cerutti makes me want
to go to class because he really
enjoys his job and his students
are able to see that through his
classes said Mike Lopez, senior
English major.
At the beginning of each class
he writes a word on the board.
He writes words like - "student
"sophomore "pornography" or
"fornication" on the board and
then gives the correct meaning,
instead of the slang term it's used
for today. As society changes,
words seem to lose their original
meaning.
Almost a year ago Dr. Cerutti
received a phone cail from Don
Burleson, whose son Andrew was
in his class and couldn't stop
talking about it. Don Burleson is
a publisher (Rampant Press) and
was very interested in codifying
his class.
"I was blown away said
Cerutti.
After about six months he
completed the book titled - The
Words of the Day: The Unlikely
Evolution of Common English. He
had help from Joel White, then
an ECU freshman, with the illus-
trations. He uses Greek humor to
spruce up the book with a touch
of modern culture.
"Dr. Cerutti has a personable
sense of humor to him. His per-
sonality shines through in every-
thing he does said Joel White, a
sophomore political science and
communication major.
Ever since Joel was a kid he
loved to draw and has been fas-
cinated with the Seven Wonders
of the Ancient World.
"It's really an honor to illus-
trate the book White said.
He plans to write a novel
of his own some day, and
requested another interview,
where he will be the author.
The book will come out
this December at Barnes
and Noble, you will also be
able to order it online at
amazon.com.
Dr. Cerutti gets frus
trated sometimes because
people begin to talk and
use words in the wrong

Down-low on downtown: Clubs students enjoy
Going to dance clubs whenever they can, students enjoy the many options available in Greenville.
Check out these local
hot spots
TOMEKA STEELE
SENIOR WRITER
Downtown Greenville is infa-
mous throughout North Carolina
as a place where people can go
to have a good time, especially
during that wonderful time of
year known as Halloween. Stu-
dents from other universities
come from near and far to experi-
ence how ECU really gets down.
The downtown scene has
plenty to offer for everyone.
There are numerous nightclubs,
bars and restaurants for students
to choose from and every place
has special deals and operates
most nights of the week.
The best parties and club
deals usually begin on Wednes-
days and run through Saturdays.
The prices to enter nightclubs
downtown are forever changing.
The most rational thing to do Is
to bring at least ten dollars just
for entering purposes. If you
are legal and would like to buy
drinks you might want to bring
more cash, how much, depends
on how drunk you are trying to
get that night.
There are seven major hot
clubs and bars to consider when
venturing downtown. Aqua,
Cabanas, The Other Place, Pan-
tana Bob's, Cavern, Five 19 and
Scores are the hottest nightclubs
and bars in downtown Greenville.
All of these places charge
reasonable prices but sometimes
have private parties, so if you
are not invited on those nights
you have to go elsewhere. Not a
problem when all six clubs are
within walking distance of each
other.
Aqua is the newest nightclub
to hit Greenville. It opened in
August and has been the premier
place to dance and drink the
night away ever sense. Aqua has
low drink prices and specials
every night. What makes Aqua
truly the number one hot spot
downtown is the full martini
bar with more than 20 differ-
ent types of delicious martinis
and a full oxygen bar which
Greenville has never seen before
in a nightclub. Aqua has a unique
design with a full stage columned
by polls of water. It has screens
that play different animations to
coincide with the 25,000-watt
sound system that plays only the
hottest songs.
In the beginning, Aqua cost
a mere two dollars to get into but
the club has gotten so popular
they often demand college I.D. as
well as licenses. Therefore, if you
are trying to hit Aqua for a night,
don't forget these two items, you
won't get In without them.
Many nightclubs downtown
require memberships. These
memberships are usually free
and one can go to the club early
during the day or call to find out
when memberships are given
out. Often times just light infor-
mation is requested in order to
receive a membership.
The Cavern always offers
"ladies free nights" which is a
great deal for college women.
Cavern is a great place to go if
you have a love for all types of
music, and also offers a lot of
sitting space.
Cabanas is always the place
students go to when other clubs
let out. Cabanas keep their par-
ties going until 4 a.m. So when
the other clubs let out at 2 a.m. if
students feel like they still have
more energy for dancing and par-
tying the night away, Cabanas is
where they finish the night off.
The Other Place is a great
nightspot for the older crowd, 21
and up. Students choose this club
when they do not feel the need to
be bothered with underclassmen.
It is logical and a good choice
when trying to keep it "grown
and sexy
Pantana Bob's or "PB's" has
an awesome sound system and
bar. They also have a stage and
promote many parties. Be aware
that PB's does have a dress code
and those who don't follow that
code will not be granted access.
Scores is a laid back bar that
offers not only music and a huge
bar selection, but pool tables as
well. This is more of a bar than a
nightclub so it's a perfect place to
relax and enjoy your college life.
"I went to Scores for a party
and it was extremely hot but It
is very spacious and has a lot
of pool tables and sitting areas
which is a plus when it comes to
a bar or club. But overall I had a
lot of fun said senior biology
major Niaja Cotton.
When it comes to downtown
it is not just about the nightclubs

Road trips, fun out of Greenville
Beaches and baseball in
the Tar Heel State
SCOTTY WILLIAMS
STAFF WRITER
So you've got to be wonder-
ing what there is to do outside of
Greenville, and more importantly,
where there is to go in eastern
North Carolina. For lovers of
knowledge and recreation alike,
there are plenty of things to see
In the Old North State.
For old school sports lovers,
there's an ideal locale just a
half hour from ECU in Kinston.
Grainger Stadium is the house
of the Kinston Indians, a minor
league baseball team in the Cleve-
land Indians farm system. The
team plays in a small house with
an old-school family feel to it. The
stadium is a great destination for
Sunday fun with friends, and with
$7 putting you in a box seat right
by the field, it's worth the money.
If sports aren't your thing
but you still want to cut lose, just
head east to the North Carolina
beaches, one of the state's more
famous features. There are a
number of picturesque tourist
locations along Jhe coast, such
as Emerald Isle, Atlantic Beach,
Morehead City, Beaufort and
Carolina Beach allows driving and camping on one public beach.
Pine Knoll Shores. Emerald Isle is
about two and a half hours from
Greenville, making it a great
choice for a day trip. If you are
into surfing and want an adven-
ture drive down to Wrightsville
Beach and try your luck on the
waves of Masonboro Island. Just
words of advise to the surfers,
cross the inlet in a boat so you
don't get chewed up by a shark,
or worse yet, a boat prop.
The beaches are great spots
to go to not just for a day of rays,
but a day of activity and even
learning if you desire. Beaufort
has the North Carolina Maritime
Museum which highlights the
history of seafaring in North
Carolina, and history lovers
would also delight in a tour of
Fort Macon, which was active in
the Civil War and World War II.
You could also check out some
sea life at the North Carolina
Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores.
If you want the token picture
opportunity in North Carolina,
you have to take a tour of the
North Carolina lighthouses. It
wouldn't be a short activity; how-
ever, North Carolina's coast actu-
ally has seven famous lighthouses
that dot the shoreline. These light-
houses have all been up and run-
ning for decades and are nice stops
for any North Carolina tourist.
North Carolina's coastline
also affords the opportunity for
some choice scuba diving. For

Sexual Assault Awareness Week
Prevention is the key
to. safety
SARAH CAMPBELL
STAFF WRITER
In the United States some-
one is sexually assaulted every
two minutes and someone is
raped every six minutes. Shock-
ing isn't it? College students
are in the most vulnerable age
group for sexual assault. "Sexual
Assault includes a wide range
of victimizations, distinct from
rape or attempted rape. These
crimes include completed or
attempted attacks generally
involving unwanted sexual con-
tact between the victim and
offender. Sexual assaults may
or may not involve force and
include such things as grabbing
or fondling. Sexual assault also
includes verbal threats accord-
ing to the US Department of
Justice as posted at rainn.org.
ECU is hoping to prevent
sexual assault through aware-
ness. One of the key compo-
nents in their battle is Sexual
Assault Awareness Week, which
provides students with sexual
assault awareness, prevention,
education and resources. "Sexual
assault awareness also includes
understanding the behaviors
that are defined as sexual assault,
including rape, knowing what to
do if you are sexually assaulted
and how you can be a supportive
ally to friends who are victims
survivors of sexual assault said
Suzanne Molhan, ECU'S sexual
assault victim advocate. This year
SAAW will be the week of Sept.
19 - 23 and will have a variety
of different activities to educate
students. Each day there will be
a different event.
Monday, Sept. 19 from 6:30
- 8:30 p.m. was the "Take Back
the Night March which began
at the top of College Hill at Belk
Hall and ended at Joyner Library.
Prior to the march a candlelight
vigil was held.
An open discussion about
sexual assault on college campus
will take place Tuesday, Sept. 20
from 8 - 9 p.m. in the Wright
Building room 312. A police offi-
cer and two counselors will be on
hand to lead the discussion.
In the multipurpose room at
Mendenhall students can paint T-
shirts and make bracelets from 6
- 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 21. You
can learn self-defense techniques
that can play a vital part in your
protection with ECU Police Offi-
cer Janel Drake from 7 - 9 p.m.
On Thursday, Sept. 22 there
will be a women's sexual asser-
tiveness workshop from 11:30
a.m. - 1 p.m. in the second floor
conference room of the Student
Health Center. Free pizza and
refreshments will be provided
during the event.
A group of survivors and
friends of survivors of sexual
assault will be hosted by coun-
selors Friday, Sept. 23 from 10
-1! a.m. in the second floor mul-
tipurpose room of the Student
Health Center. The event entitled
"Breaking the Silence" will be
a time to offer support and
increase awareness.
Three percent of college
women experience a completed
or attempted rape each year. "Pre-
vention is the goal of ECU in edu-
cating students in making safe,
healthy decisions Molhan said.
Contraception for rape victims
Laws on hospital emergency rooms' treatment of sexual assault
Must provide emergency contraception if woman wants it

No state law

��.S
Scuc. NARAL Pro-Owlc Anwtlca Graphic Chicago Tnbur
Victims of rape often require Emergency Contraception. There are
many states in this country that provide Emergency Contraception
only with counseling. North Carolina has no state law about
Emergency Contraception, which makes It readily available.
Reporting these crimes is
especially important to make
sure that the attacker doesn't
strike again. It also provides the
victim will closure and a sense
of safeness.
SAAW wants to encourage stu-
dents to not be afraid or ashamed
to let someone know they have
been sexually assaulted as well as
offering students tips on how to
prevent sexual assault.
Awareness is the first step in
prevention. By attending one of
the events during SAAW you can
learn things that may prevent
you and your friends from being
sexually assaulted. If you or a
friend is the victim of sexual
assault, call the police imme-
diately, being aware of specific
details about the attacker. Emer-
gency contraception Is available
in the state of North Carolina for
victims of sexual assault or rape.

context. That's another reason
why he feels the book is so great,
he wants people to know exactly
what they are saying. He feels
this is especially important in
today's society because using the
wrong words could get you fired,
harassed or even killed.
"We can show people shoot-
ing and killing each other all
day long on television, but
you can't say the "f-word" or
a whole bunch of others
Cerutti said.
His vision for Classics came
when he first came to ECU and
did not try to make students
become Classics majors, but to
try and create an interesting
program that would entice stu-
dents to take Classics courses to
fulfill their General Education
- Humanities requirements.
"No one should graduate
from ECU without knowing who
Homer or Euripides was, the dif-
ference between the Pantheon
and the. Parthenon or who built
the great pyramids at Giza
Cerutti said.
His schedule keeps him
very busy, as he is dedicated
to his job. Not only does he
teach Classics 1300, but also
"The Ancient City Rome" (CLAS
3400), "The Ancient City Pom-
peii" (CLAS 3410), "Introduc-
tions to the Classical World"
(CLAS 2000) and "Greek Tragedy
in Translation" (CLAS 2500).
These classes always close out
quickly after registration begins
with more than a hundred stu-
dents per class, so he is obvi-
ously doing something to keep
students so interested in the
antiquity. It's a great feeling and
compliment when Dr. Cerutti
has students take more than just
one of his classes. It lets him
know that he is getting through
CERUTTI
to his students and holding
their attention. He has opened
the doors into Classics for many
students and wants them to be
a part of the wider public who
also respects, understands and
appreciates the Classical World.
Society is slowly coming around
to learn about Rome. Luck-
ily HBO had a "Rome Week"
and the History Channel has
a series on Roman Engineer-
ing but the message is still not
quite widespread enough. Holly-
wood jumped on the bandwagon
with the popular movies "Troy"
and "Gladiator
Be sure to catch early regis-
tration and turn back time with
Greek life. In the meantime Dr.
Cerutti will be working on his
next book for his Greek Tragedy
course: Why Greek Goats Sing
Sad Songs; A Companion for Read-
ing (and Understanding) Greek
Tragedy.

the beginning diver, professional
dive companies are available to
help you learn, and for the expe-
rienced diver, there are numerous
shipwrecks the "Graveyard of the
Atlantic" presents to be explored.
Grab a rod and reel and try
your hand at fishing while you're
on the Crystal Coast. Many of the
spots on North Carolina's Crystal
Coast have fishing piers as well as
fishing boats that rent out spots
to fish in the deep water. Fishing
tournaments are held often for
the avid sport fisherman.
For a taste of southern
hospitality to go with a
beautiful coastal experience,
head out to Atlantic Beach,
Beaufort or More-
head City and take a
shoreline cruise. For an hour or
two, you can enjoy a nice dinner
while cruising on the water
and watching for dolphins or
enjoying the natural beauty that
unfolds before your eyes. For
anniversaries, birthdays and
parties, it's a fun and new way
to enjoy an evening with some
friends, or that special someone.
If you want to get together
a group of outdoor enthusiasts,
who all just happen to possess
an all-terrain vehicle, Carolina
Beach is the place to go. Students
have been taking the two-hour
cruise down to 'The Redneck
Riviera' for years to drive on the
beach. In the past, this has been
free, but now Carolina Beach is
charging $10 a day or $40 a year
for this privilege. People can
camp, fish or relax for the day.
These are just a few of the
awesome things you can do on
the North Carolina coast, and
there are certainly more things to
get out there and experience for
yourself. For more information
on the options discussed here
or to find a new adventure, visit
sunnync.com and check out the
many things you can do.
The state of North Carolina
Is over the brim with diverse
environments and tourist spots
for those seeking some fun in the
sun. The best way to find them
all is to explore the state's east
coast, one weekend at a time. Just
hop in your car, roll down the
windows and follow the smell of
ocean water.

McCallion named C-U&A
Player-of-the-Week
ECU senior forward Meghan McCallion
has been named Conference USA
Women's Soccer Offensive Player-of-
the-Week according to a release from
the league office Monday afternoon.
The Long Island, NY native led the
Pirates (3-5) to a pair of wins this
week, while also setting two school
records in the process. For the week
she tallied three goals, including one
game-winner and two assists against
Campbell and Francis Marion. Her
34th career goal and first of the FMU
match set a new school record for
career goals previously held by former
Pirate great Amanda Duffy. With her
second goal of the day, McCallion
again passed Duffy on the charts as
ECU'S all-time leading scorer notching
her 85th career point. For McCallion,
a 2005 all C-USA candidate, it is the
second time she has earned player-of-
the-week honors with the first coming
during her sophomore season. On the
year, McCallion leads the Pirates in
goals (5), points (13), shots (24) and is
tied for the team lead in assists (3). The
Lady Pirates continue their four-game
homestand Wednesday afternoon,
Sept. 21 when they host Furman at 4
p.m. at Bunting Field.
Krug named setter-of-
the-week
ECU junior setter Heidi Krug was
named Conference USA Setter-of-
the-Week as announced by league
officials Monday afternoon. Krug, who
tallied 110 assists in two matches
this past week, led ECU to wins over
Charleston Southern and host Wofford
at the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Volleyball
Classic in Spartanburg, SC on Friday.
Krug, a native of Kildeer, III, earns her
first career C-USA setter-of-the-week
honor as well the Pirates' first weekly
honor of the season.
She set a new career-high with 66 set
assists against Charleston Southern in
a 3-1 win over the Buccaneers. Krug's
66 assists surpasses her previous high
of 64 that she set against Furman her
freshman season. After setting a new
career-high in the classic opener on
Friday, Krug added 44 assists in the
nightcap against Wofford in a 3-0
shutout victory over the host Terriers.
In addition to her 110 assists, Krug
added nine kills, one service ace, two
total blocks and 14 digs in ECU'S two
wins. Krug finished with an average
of 15.71 assists per game in the two

Pirates Deac-ed against
Wake Forest, 44-34
Second-half rally not
enough for Pirates
ERIC GILMORE
SENIOR WRITER
���
Skip Holtz was riding high
after his debut win against Duke
two weeks ago. Unfortunately for
Holtz, winless Wake Forest was
already firmly planted on the
ground. For the Demon Deacons,
the ground was a significant
advantage.
"Wake Forest controlled the
line of scrimmage on both the
offensive and defensive side of
the ball said a humbled Holtz.
"They did a good job up front
'Up front' meant the Pirates
were dominated, giving up 407
rushing yards. Wake Forest run-
ning back Chris Barclay notched
241 yards on 25 carries with four
touchdowns. For good measure,
backup Micah Andrews carried
22 times for 145 yards.
Wake Forest's (1-2) 44-34
triumph over ECU (1-1) was the
fifth consecutive in as many
years. But this game was differ-
ent. Unlike the last two tilts, the
Pirates fought back.
With 2:41 remaining in the
second quarter, the Pirates were
in a 31-6 hole after Barclay's 6,
19 and 13-yard touchdown scam-
pers. A shade over a quarter later,
ECU made up 18 points when
they were within a touchdown
after Aundrae Allison's second
touchdown reception.
"I'm proud of this team
Holtz said Monday after review-
ing the game tape.
"I'm proud of the heart they
played withand the fightthey had
Playing in front of a large
Pirate contingent on the road,
ECU began their rally before the
first half concluded. Allison's
9-yard touchdown snare from
James Pinkney capped off an
eight-play, 69-yard drive.
After a Wake Forest 39-yard
field goal, ECU had another
eight-play drive. The Pirates
ran every down utilizing Chris
Johnson's speed and agility.
Johnson capped off the drive
with a 12-yard touchdown dive
at the left pylon.
Johnson's 103 yard effort was
the first time the sophomore
topped the century mark since
he racked up 158 yards against
Tulane last season.
After two Wake Forest three-
and-outs, Pinkney found Allison
on a slip screen when the junior
receiver raced 51-yards to pay dirt.
The Georgia Military Institute
transfer had a game-high eight
receptions for 158 yards com-
bined with the two touchdowns.
"Allison has been a force for
our offense all year Holtz said.
"He has as much talent as
anybody I've had play for me
But the 7-point margin was
the closest ECU would come.
Wake Forest answered with a
debilitating 12-play drive ending

McCallion breaks ECU scoring record
(SID) � ECU senior Meghan
McCallion scored two goals
and collected one assist to lead
the Pirates to a 6-1 win over
Francis Marion Sunday after-
noon at Bunting Field.
The Pirates (3-5-0) got on
the board early when Rachel
Hils found Allison Howell open
on the right corner of the goal
box for the games first goal.
Five minutes later, McCal-
lion notched her 34th career
goal from 16 yards out to
become ECU's all-time leader
in goals scored, passing former
Pirate standout Amanda Duffy.
Freshman Nicole Moore was
credited with the assist, the first
of her career.
Francis Marion (1-3-0)
answered the Pirates goal with
one of their own when Ashley
Wahl found a loose ball in the
box at the 28:20 mark for her
first goal of the season.
McCallion scored her second
goal of the day, 35th of her
career, in the 35th minute
when Anastasia Nikas headed
a ball over for the Pirates' third
goal. With the goal, McCallion
became ECU's all-time leader in
points (85) once again passing
Duffy on the Pirate charts.
Senior Kate Lowe netted her
second goal of the season during
the 37th minute when Sarah
Biggar served a cross pass at the
top of the box.
During the second-half,
the Pirates added to their three
goal lead when Tracy FitzGerald
recorded her first goal of the
season and second of her career
off a McCallion pass.
Freshman Taylor Bell closed
out the Pirate scoring in the 73rd
minute when Sadia Altidore and
Blair Heffner connected on
a series of passes finding an
open Bell for the Pirates' sixth
goal.
ECU goalie Amber Campbell
faced just three shots in 78:18
minutes allowing one goal while
picking up her third win of the
year. Freshman walk-on keeper
Heather Johnston saw her first
action in goal for the Pirates
during the second-half.
"I thought we played very
well today said Head Coach
Rob Donnenwirth.
"Francis Marion was a
little thin with players and we
were able to take advantage of
that. I'm really happy for Mac
(Meghan McCallion) today. At
the beginning of the season
this was one of her goals, and it
is a great accomplishment
The Pirates will be back in
action Wednesday, Sept. 21 Q
when they host Furman at 4 �
p.m. at Bunting Field.

On the field, these kids are just tin soldiers
Urban Meyer and his Gators are 3-0 so far this young season.
(KRT) � Every time he said
it, you cringed.
And he kept saying it over
and over.
New Florida Coach Urban
Meyer, after the biggest victory
of his young coaching career
Saturday night, went armed
forces on us.
He was talking about Andre
"Bubba" Caldwell and Ray
McDonald, two star players who
were injured in Saturday's victory
over Tennessee. And for some
reason only a football coach
understands, he kept referring
to them as if they were casual-
ties of war.
A sampling of Meyer's post-
game news conference:
"Bubba Caldwell is a soldier,
he will have surgery (on a broken
leg). Ray McDonald is another
fallen soldier. . . Those are two
soldiers . . . We take care of our
soldiers around here . . . When
one soldier drops a rifle, the next
one's got to pick it up and go a
little harder
Will somebody make him
stop? Please?
Actually, to his credit,
Meyer swears he's going to
make himself stop. When
asked Sunday about the many
military comparisons he made
Saturday, Meyer acknowl-
edged that he's not coaching in
Utah anymore.
"I guess I'm not used to being
on the national stage Meyer said
sheepishly. "Even though we use
the term (soldier) out of respect,
you need to watch what you say,
especially these days. I need to be
more careful
1 know football coaches are
prone to hyperbole. And I know
football is a brutal, tough and,
yes, sometimes even a life-threat-
ening sport. But football is not
war, and the guys who play it are
not soldiers.
However, the Gators do have
a guy on their team who was a

Barclay scores on one of his four touchdowns against the Pirates Saturday afternoon.
on Sam Swank's 47-yard field
goal. After an ECU three-and-out,
Chris Barclay's 65-yard touch-
down sprint on 3rd-and-l pushed
the game out of reach.
Pinkney capped the scoring
with a 3-yard touchdown toss
to Robert Tillman on 4th-and-
goal late in the fourth quarter.
Tillman caught seven balls for 63
yards. The junior saw his first full
game action from the H-back slot
after missing much of fall camp
with academic issues.
Forced to throw for much
of the game, Pinkney finished
20-of-45 for 292 yards. Pinkney
has yet to throw an interception
in 66 attempts this season.
"Pinkney really played well
I lull said.
"He's doing a good job pro-
tecting the football
On Wake Forest's Ini-
tial possession, a critical pass
interference flag against Kasey
Ross on third-and-goal gave Wake
a fresh set of downs. Two plays
later, Benjamin Mauk found full-
back Richard Belton in the end
zone from 4-yards out.
"After going back and
reviewing the play at the goal line,
I thought (Ross made a heck of a
play Holtz said.
Later in the first quarter,
Wake Forest defensive line-
man Alphonso Smith blocked
Ryan Dougherty's third punt
attempi and downed it himself
on the ECU 20. That big play
resulted in a quick, four-play
scoring drive capped off by
Barclay's 6-yard touchdown
surge top make it 14-0.
The Pirates settled for a couple
of Robert Lee field goals before
Barclay's third touchdown. Lee
knocked through a career-high
SI yarder for ECU's first points.
He remained perfect on the
season with a 23-yarder in the
second quarter.
Defensively, ECU had no
answer for the Wake Forest rush-
ing attack. Chris Moore led ECU
with 10 tackles. Backup safety
Mickey McCoy recorded nine
stops and the only ECU sack.
The Pirates travel to West
Virginia (3-0) for a noon kickoff
in Morgantown, W.Va. ECU has
never won in Morgantown in
10 tries. WVU beat ECU 56-23
last year in the season opener for
both teams.
"We are a work in progress
Holtz reiterated Monday.
"If we continue to get better
every week and continue to
improve, then we have a chance
to see how good we can be

soldier. His name is Cam Brewer, a
walk-on wide receiver and former
Marine who served in Iraq. Asked
by a reporter if he is offended by
his coach's comments, Brewer
answered, "No sir
Always the good soldier.
"I've thought about it a lot
Brewer admitted, "and it actually
motivates me when Coach Meyer
calls us soldiers. You look at a
football team and there are so
many similarities to the military.
The players are the enlisted men;
the coach is the general. And
then you have the camaraderie
and the trust and the fighting
and the sacrificing we do for
each other
Undoubtedly, football lends
itself to military analogies more
than any other sport as pointed
out in the old bit by come-
dian George Carlin, who once
lampooned: "In football the
object is for the quarterback,
otherwise known as the field
general, to be on target with
his aerial assault, riddling the
defense by hitting receivers
with deadly fcuracy in spite of
the blitz, evsm if he has to use
the shotgun. With short bullet
passes and long bombs, he
marches his troops into enemy
territory, balancing this aerial
assault with a sustained
ground attack that punches
holes in the forward wall of the
enemy's defensive line
Carlin was kidding; Meyer
was not. Although his "soldier"
references weren't nearly as
offensive as the ones made two
years ago by former Miami tight
end Kellen Winslow Jr they still
made you flinch.
All athletes and coaches
should refrain immediately from
correlating their make-believe
war to real ones. In peacetime,
the analogies are tacky. In war-
time, they're just wrong. When
fighting men and women are
being sent home in caskets, it
seems dreadfully self-important
for a coach to liken his players to
real soldiers.
A blitzing linebacker doesn't
compare to an inescapable sui-
cide bomber. Staring at a 3rd-
and-7 pales in comparison to
staring at an AK-47. And if Florida
quarterback Chris Leak makes a
bad decision, the consequence is
a loss of down or yardage; not a
loss of life or limb.
� There's just no comparison to
be made between football players
and soldiers.
So can we please stop making
them?
Sooners' 1-2 start to season is startling
(KRT) � We're three weeks
into the season, and already five
teams ranked in the preseason
top 10 have lost: No. 3 Tennes-
see, No. 4 Michigan, No. 6 Ohio
State, No. 7 Oklahoma and No.
9 Miami.
Actually, the Sooners already
have two losses, and while the
other teams still have at least
faint national-title hopes, the
Sooners are hoping they can get
to something like the Alamo
Bowl. This from a program
that has played in the past two
national-title games and in three
of the past five.
In the seven seasons of the
BCS, a one-loss team has reached
the title game four times, so the
Vols, Wolverines, Buckeyes and
Hurricanes still are in the hunt.
Obviously, though, none of them
can lose again, but that's going
to be tough, given the remaining
schedules.
First off, Michigan and Ohio
State play each other. Each also
plays Iowa, which also has one
loss, and Michigan State, which
has a powerful offense but an
iffy defense.
Tennessee still has top-10
schools Georgia and LSU to play.
Miami still has Virginia Tech,
itself a title contender.
There are seven one-loss
teams in The Associated Press
poll, eight in the USA Today
coaches poll.
As for OU, the unranked
Sooners' 1-2 start is startling.
"I know what will be written,
but we're a work in progress
Sooners Coach Bob Stoops told
the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
"We're fighting that. We're going
to keep pushing and making
improvements each week, and if
we do that, we have a chance to
have a good team
All Hall Vandy
Vanderbilt hasn't been to a
bowl since 1982. That bowl-less
streak seems likely to end this
season.
The Commodores are 3-0
overall and 2-0 in the SEC after
beating Ole Miss 31-23 on Sat-
urday, and their next two games
- both at home - are against
Division I-AA Richmond and
Middle Tennessee State. That
means a 5-0 start, which hasn't
happened since 1943, appears
imminent.
"There are a lot of faithful
Vanderbilt fans who haven't
had an opportunity like this
junior wide receiver Erik Davis
said. "Now, we're coming out and
doing really well
The remaining conference
schedule includes games with
LSU, Georgia, Florida and Ten-
nessee - but also meetings with
Kentucky and South Carolina.
On paper, the Commodores are
better than the Wildcats and
Gamecocks.
One reason Vandy is playing
so well is senior QB Jay Cutler, a
6-foot-4,230-pound senior from
- no kidding - Santa Claus, Ind.
OU quarterback Rhett Bomar, reaches for a fumble during the second half Saturday afternoon.
Many folks scoffed when SEC
coaches named him preseason
All-SEC, but maybe the coaches
knew something. He's averaging
289.3 passing yards and 48.7
rushing yards per game.
"Their quarterback is an
excellent player Ole Miss Coach
Ed Orgeron said.
Where's the offense?
Nebraska is 3-0 under second-
year Coach Bill Callahan after
Saturday's beyond-ugly 7-6 vic-
tory over Dave Wannstedt and
Pitt. The teams combined to go
4-of-29 on third-down conver-
sions, and in a comedy of errors
befitting a bad Keystone Kops
film, Pitt blew two chances at a
game-winning field goal in the
final seconds.
The Huskers rank 108th in
the nation in total offense, at
271.3 yards per game, and most
of that has been provided by
TB Cory Ross (118.7 ypg). QB
Zac Taylor has - like predeces-
sor Joe Dailey - been abysmal
in the passing game (39-of-89
- 43.8 percent - for 399 yards,
with three picks and one TD).
Nebraska is converting just 13 of
48 third-down conversions this
season (27 percent).
So how are they 3-0? A superb
defense. The Huskers are allow-
ing 232.0 yards per game - ninth
nationally - and have allowed a
22 percent conversion rate on
third down.
"We've got to do a better job
as an offense and we understand
that Callahan said.
The Huskers need to get better
fast. They're off this week, then
host Iowa State on Oct. 1. Iowa
State is a trendy pick to win the
Big 12 North, and the Cyclones'
offense is the best the Huskers
will have seen this season.
Explain this
Notre Dame beat Michigan
at Michigan. Michigan State beat
Notre Dame at Notre Dame. But
take a gander at the rankings.
In the AP poll, Michigan is
at 14th, Notre Dame at 16th and
Michigan State at 17th.
It's even worse in the coaches
poll: Michigan at 13th, Notre Dame at
18th and Michigan State at 22nd.
Ridiculous.
Grid Bits
Before the season, it appeared
as if USC would have three diffi-
cult road games: against Oregon,
Arizona State and California. The
first one is this Saturday, when
the Trojans travel to play the
Ducks. That's the same Ducks
team that gave up 530 total
yards to Fresno State. Not to
disparage Fresno, but the Bull-
dogs' offense isn't in the same
class as USC's. That obviously
bodes ill for Oregon. . . . Texas
Tech had 15 possessions against
Sam Houston State on Saturday.
The Red Raiders scored on 12 of
them in an 80-21 demolition of
the I-AA Bearkats. On the three
possessions on which it didn't
score, Tech punted once, missed
a field goal and ran out the clock
in the fourth quarter. It could be
worse this week when Tech hosts
I-AA Indiana State, which isn't
nearly as good as Sam Houston
State. In other words, if the Red
Raiders want to score 100, they
could. "I think if we play well
and we capitalize on every drive,
we can score 100 points Tech
QB Cody Hodges saidSouth
Carolina has rushed for 146 yards
- total - in its three games. No
wonder the Gamecocks are 0-2
in the SEC. It's the first time
Steve Spurrier has lost back-to-
back SEC games since 1992. That
season, Florida went on to win
the SEC East. That's not going
to happen for the Gamecocks
this season ESPN and ESPN2
have enjoyed a nice run of suc-
cess with its Thursday and Friday
night games. The past three have
gone into overtime (Pitt-Ohio U
Utah-TCU and Houston-UTEP).
This week, the networks have a
game Wednesday, one Thursday
and two on Friday. . . Is rancid-
ness a word? Even if it isn't, it
aptly describes the Sun Belt Con-
ference. The league's standard-
bearer is North Texas - which lost
54-2 to a Tulsa team that came in
0-2. The combined record for the
Sun Belt's eight teams is 4-18.
. San Diego State (0-3) scored on
the first play from scrimmage
against Ohio State. The Aztecs
didn't score again and finished
with three first downs in a 27-6
loss. Aztecs Coach Tom Craft
won't be around next season
unless the Aztecs go 6-2 the rest
of the way. . . . The contract for
the Florida Classic - which annu-
ally pits Bethune-Cookman and
Florida A&M in the Citrus Bowl
- expires after this season. The
schools haven't put the game up
for bid yet, but they have asked
the City of Orlando, Orange
County, Florida Citrus Sports
and Disney (a title sponsor)
about new revenue streams. . . .
The heat is on Arkansas Coach
Houston Nutt, whose team lost
to Vandy last week at home, then
was mauled 70-17 by USC on
Saturday night. This week, the
Hogs go to 3-0 Alabama. One
saving grace for Nutt is that he
has a commitment from Mitch
Musi.mi, a quarterback from
Springdale (Ark.) High who is
perhaps the nation's best at his
position.
