Sexual assault is college's 'silent epidemic'
Students can learn how
to protect themselves
USA DEVRIES
STAFF WRITER
Most people regard rape and
sexual assault as something
distant from their own lives
that occurs only in dark alleys,
perpetrated by masked figures
toting weapons, but in nine out
of 10 cases of sexual assault, the
victim knows the offender.
Recently, a new office has
opened in the Center for Coun-
seling and Student Develop-
ment whose goal is to provide
sexual assault awareness for
students and offer safety tips,
counseling and also representa-
tion for sexual assault victims.
Also, this past week, Sept. 19
through the 23, was "Sexual
Assault Awareness Week The
program was kick-started last
Monday night with the "Take
Back the Night March" followed
by a candlelight vigil. Other
events included open-discussion
workshops, a self defense semi-
nar and T-shirt painting. Plans
are also in the making for the
Sexual Assault Awareness month
in April.
Why is sexual assault a "silent
epidemic"? Only 40 percent of
attacks are ever reported in the
U.S and sexual assaults carried
out against men are even less
reported, with only three to four
percent on record.
"This is not just a female
problem said Sue Molhan,
the ECU Sexual Assault Victim
Advocate.
"It affects everyone in our
community
Embarrassment is usually the
cause. Some victims blame them-
selves because of making the
wrong decisions regarding their
personal safety or because of
their impaired judgment, or are
afraid to tell anyone for fear of
ridicule, not to mention that
rape is a traumatic event in and
of itself. Sometimes even when
assaults are reported, proving
rape has occurred can become a
he-said, she-said game with the
judicial system. It is sometimes
difficult to prove that intercourse
was not consensual, which is
why it is important to report an
assault as soon as possible.
Most assaults on college cam-
puses involve drug and alcohol
usage, and according to the
Bureau of Justice, 75 percent
of the time, the offender or
the victim has been drinking.
For the 2004 - 2005 school
year, there were three reported
rapes. Most of the on-campus
assaults involved date-rape situ-
ations in the victim or suspect's
resident hall room. "Alcohol
andor drugs are also involved in
many of the cases said Wayne
Knight, ECU police officer.
When asked why she felt
self-defense knowledge is impor-
tant, Jessica Lindsey, freshman
meteorology major, was most
concerned about security.
"You need to feel secure
where you live said Lindsey
Knight also offered the fol-
lowing tips on how to stay safe
on and off campus.
"Do not accept an unopened
beverage container from anyone a
unless you have watched the �
individual (i.e. barkeeper) pour
the beverage Knight said.

STAFF WRITER
Japan Center East, one
of many economic and
cultural outreach programs
of the Regional Development
Services, began its cultural
enrichment series with the
"Taste of Japan" event last
Tuesday.
RDS has been working

Massey emphasized that
Japan Center East's purpose
for eastern North Carolina
is cultural enrichment and
economic development. There
are approximately ISO Japanese
companies in North Carolina
creating what Massey calls an
"economic engine eight of
them located in eastern North
Carolina, such as ASMO and
Asahi. There are also many
American companies that do
a good deal of business with
Japan, like DSM, Metrics and
SpeechEasy, only to name a few.
"We are trying to create a
diversity-friendly community
to bring more foreign business
here Massey said.
She also added that Japan
Center East helps the eastern
North Carolina community
celebrate cultural differences.
Japan Center East also has a
handful of tentatively scheduled
events planned for the year. In
February, they are hosting the
"Art of Bonsai followed by
the Japan Travel Information
Seminar in March. If traveling
in the off-season, tickets tojapan
can be found for as low as $550.
In April, Greenville's annual
International Festival, JCE will
host a public performance of
the Bon dance, an ancestral
appeasement ritual, which last
year was performed by the ECU
football players and dancers
from ECU's school of dance. For
the following autumn, plans are
in the making for a tea ceremony
and a theatrical showing of
a Kabuki performance. JCE
hopes that in the near future,
all planned events will be more
participatory and engaging.
Students, faculty, staff and
the public are welcome to
attend any and all events led
by JCE. Massey said she has a
"paperless outreach" policy,
so all events can be viewed at

Don Adams, TV's secret agent on 'Get Smart; dies at 82
LOS ANGELES (AP) � Don
Adams had only one notable role
in a television and movie career
that spanned more than 40 years
- but what a role it was.
As Maxwell Smart, a bumbling
secret agent with a nasally voice,
he won three Emmy Awards as
best comedy actor in the hit
1960s TV series "Get Smart He
also created two national catch-
phrases, "Would you believe ?"
and "Sorry about that
"It was a special show that
became a cult classic of sorts,
and I made a lot of money for it
Adams once recalled. "But it also
hindered me career-wise because
I was typed. The character was
so strong, particularly because-
of that distinctive voice, that
nobody could picture me in any
other type of role
Adams died Sunday of a lung
infection at Cedars-Sinai Medi-
cal Center. He was 82 and had
been in declining health since
breaking a hip a year ago, his
friend and former agent Bruce
Tufeld said.
As Inept Agent 86 of the
super-secret federal agency CON-
TROL, Adams somehow over-
came his bumbling each week to
defeat the evil agents of the rival
KAOS spy agency.
Whenever he gave an expla-
nation that failed to convince
the villains or his boss, he would
try another tack, asking "Would
you believe?" When they shook
their heads in disbelief, he would
ask again, with each scenario
becoming more ridiculous than
the previous one.
see ADAMS page A2 Don Adams' acting career lasted more than 40 years. He died at 82.
The 2005 Health Majors Fair
sponsored by the Academic
Enrichment Center was held
Tuesday at Wright Plaza from
10:30 a.m. - 1:30 p.m and the
crowds gathered around the
booths were perhaps a sign of
the interest and success of the
event.
The fair was geared toward
freshmen and sophomore stu-
dents who are interested in the
medical profession and involved
several academic departments
related to health.
"Since there is no pre-med
major, we thought it would be
helpful to have an informational
fair for students who want to
pursue a medical career, but don't
know where to start said Shelly
Meyers, director of the Academic
Enrichment Center.
"There are lots of representa-
tives here - representatives from
Kaplan are here to offer help
for those taking tests for post
graduate admissions, as well
as any department that offers
study that could lead to a career
in health
The most common question
among students is also the most
confused areas of study, accord-
ing to Meyers.
"Occupational and physical
therapy careers generate a lot of
interest among students, but not
many people know these areas of
study are graduate programs and
there are other undergraduate
majors that will prepare you for
those careers Meyers said.
Meyers admits planning out
an education for a career in the
medical profession is confusing,
and she contends her office can
make the decision much easier.
"Students can make an
appointment to come by our
office, and we can talk about
majors and careers and take some
self-assessment tests to identify
areas of interest and compe-
tency Meyers said.
"All you need to bring is
yourself
Angela Kidd, a representative
from the Brody School of Medi-
cine, was also present at the fair
to inform students how the medi-
cal school application process is
carried out and how to best pre-
pare as an undergraduate.
"You don't have to be a biol-
ogy or math major to make it into
medical school as long as you
meet some basic criteria and take
some basic pre-requisite courses
said Kidd.
Of course, there are other
variables that the school looks for
in their decision as well, accord-
ing to Kidd.
"Since there is no
pre-med major, we
thought it would be
helpful to have an
informational fair for
students who want
to pursue a medical
career, but don't know
where to start
SHELLY MEYERS
DIRECTOR OF THE
ACADEMIC
ENRICHMENT CENTER.
"A student must have a 3.5
GPA or higher, a 27 total on the
MCAT and no lower than an 'N'
rating in writing Kidd said.
"We also look at volunteer-
ing, community service and
shadowing experience to see if
the student is a well-rounded
individual and whether they
have high levels of recommen-
dations
Environmental health was
represented by William Hill, a
visiting professor in the environ-
mental health department and
a lively proponent of his area
of study.
"This is a great field of study
with a large amount of flex-
ibility and variety said Hill.
"You never do the same thing
everyday
If you don't have a fear of
minor confrontations and an
interest in public safety this
might be the career for aspiring
health majors.
"There are some confronta-
tions because we're out there
in the community ensuring the
public is protected from things
they may never see - people
are really surprised to learn we
inspect places like tattoo parlors
regularly Hill said.
"Folks take us for granted,
they drink water and they know
it's safe - they don't hear about us
unless there's an outbreak
Other groups at the fair
included the College of Human
Ecology, School of Nursing,
Health Services and Information
Management, the Career Center,
College of Health and Human .
Performance, National Associa-
tion for Mental Illness, Healthy
Pirates and the Pre-Physical
Therapy Club.

Woman accused of scammlng
private school for free tuition
with war stories pleads guilty
RALEIGH, NC (AP) - A woman who
attended a private women's college
thanks to free tuition in appreciation
of her military service pleaded
guilty to scamming the school and
impersonating an officer.
Lisa Jane Phillips, 34, of Apex, admitted
Monday that she impersonated a U.S.
Air Force captain for almost three
years, allowing her $42,178 In free
tuition at Meredith College.
Phillips also pleaded guilty to lying to
federal agents, wire fraud and misuse
of military medals.
A sentencing date was not set. Her
lawyers have said she will have
to repay the college as part of her
sentence.
Probation officials also
said in court that Phillips recently
tested positive for hydrocodone,
a morphine-like drug. She is
undergoing drug treatment and has
been struggling with an addiction to
prescription narcotics since 2001,
prosecutors said.
Phillips began attending the Raleigh
school in January 2002, and beginning
two months later she began wearing
an Air Force captain's uniforms and
medals that investigators say she
had bought online or at military
surplus stores. She twice claimed to
have been wounded while deployed,
Investigators and fellow students
said.
She won over college executives,
students and faculty members with
tales of fighting in Afghanistan and
Iraq, Investigators said. She even
consoled other students with loved
ones who had been deployed,
students said.
In the end, college officials were so
touched by Phillips stories that they
waived her tuition.
College officials have not explained
how Phillips, citing student privacy
laws, fooled them.
Campus police chief Frank Strickland
became suspicious of her tales and
reported the matter to the FBI. Phillips
admitted her fraud to investigators
during an interview In January,
Assistant U.S. Attorney Kelly Perry
said Monday.
National
High court to consider campaign
fund-raising, spending limits
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme
Court agreed to review a campaign
finance law in Vermont, where
reformers are trying to limit donations
and spending in state political races
Tuesday.
The Vermont case has been watched
closely by campaign finance reform
advocates around the country, and by
those who argue that limiting political
contributions or expenditures would
violate the Rrst Amendment's free-
speech guarantee.
In 1976, the Supreme Court came
down squarely on the free-speech
side of the argument when it decided
Buckley vs. Valeo, which is the law of
the land on efforts to limit campaign
spending. That decision struck down
campaign spending limits imposed
by Congress.
The Vermont Republican State
Committee, Vermont Right-to-Life
and other groups asked the Supreme
Court in May to overturn a ruling from
a federal appeals court that largely

upheld the 1998 Vermont campaign
finance law.
It limits individual contributions
to a candidate to $200 or $400
in a two-year period, depending
on the office being sought, says
no one running for governor can
spend more than $300,000 and sets
smaller spending caps for lower-tier
candidates.
Vermont's law has been tied up in
court and never has gone fully into
effect. Gov. James Douglas spent
nearly $682,000 to get re-elected last
year, and other candidates spent well
over the law's caps.
The Vermont law also limits political
parties' contributions to candidates
to $2,000 per election cycle. With
the law tied up in the courts, Douglas
and Democrat Peter Clavelle got six-
figure contributions from their national
parties last year.
Races for the U.S. House and Senate
would not be affected, since they are
governed by federal, rather than state,
campaign finance laws.
World
Early results suggest Karzal
rivals, reputed Afghan warlord to
win parliamentary seats
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - Two
Jfi xts a-ftp ?��
main rivals of President Hamid
Karzai and a reputed warlord reviled
by rights activists are likely to win
seats in Afghanistan's parliament,
partial preliminary election results
suggested Tuesday.
With 9.2 percent of ballots counted
from Kabul province, Karzai's top
challengers in last year's presidential
election Mohammed Mohaqeq and
Yunus Qanooni had the most votes,
according to results posted on the
Web site of the U.NAfghan election
board.
Abdul Rasul Sayyaf, a powerful former
guerrilla leader who Human Rights
Watch says is implicated in rights
abuses, was running fourth in the
province, which includes the Afghan
capital.
The results could change significantly
as more votes are counted after
the landmark Sept. 18 polls, In
which Afghans voted for a national
assembly for the first time in more
than three decades as well as
provincial councils.
But candidates currently leading
have a good chance of winning
seats in Kabul, which will have 32
representatives in the Wolesi Jirga,
or lower house of parliament. Nine
of those seats are reserved for
women.
In another potential setback for Karzai,
Interior Minister AH Ahmad Jalall, who
has expressed frustration over the
alleged Involvement of officials in
Afghanistan's burgeoning drug trade,
said Tuesday he is resigning to return
to his academic career.

In the partial election results
released so far, Mohaqeq, a former
anti-Taliban militia commander, was
first with 5,392 votes, according to the
Joint Electoral Management Body.
Mohaqeq was third in the October
2004 presidential election.
Qanooni, who finished second to
U.Sbacked Karzai last October and
leads a coalition of parties opposed
to the president, was second with
4,194 votes. Sayyaf had 1,269 votes.
Observers have said the presence
on the ballot of warlords responsible
for past bloodshed could have kept
some Afghans away from the polls.
Electoral officials have estimated
turnout at about 55 percent, down
from 70 percent in the presidential
election.

My Random Column
Why I am a Mac user
My entire life I have been around Macintosh
computers. Everyone thinks I am totally crazy for
wanting to work on them but it is what I prefer.
You are probably wondering why it matters,
but today out of all of the workdays, we are
struggling to produce the paper that you are
reading right now. Servers are crashing, and
chaos is taking over and we are all losing what
bit of sanity we have left. I am a Mac user, have
been and will be until they create another PC
that fits my standards.
With the iPod craze, both PC and Mac users have
discovered this useful piece of technology that
puts CD players to shame. A mini status symbol,
this product will soon take over the market with
its household name (with products such as Q-Tip
and Jacuzzi). I myself have yet to acquire one,
but both my Mac and PC user friends all have
theirs out and about almost daily.
What makes me laugh is the fact that PC users have
to download Tunes to be able to run their handy
device. This Apple program comes standard on all
Mac computers but had to be adapted to work on
different PCs. Macs have always been more adapt-
able to PCs than the other way around.
PC people think that PCs are easier to under-
stand because they are simpler. I don't think
this is the case. I think with everything if you
understand it (a hairdryer, a computer, a car
etc.), it would be easier to work and know what
is wrong when it doesn't.
I think they have been brainwashed with popup
menus, the "My Computer" window and a "less
complicated" version of a Macintosh system.
Mac computer owners know keystrokes, short-
cuts and probably 10 different ways to get to a
file. Why can't PC people? It doesn't seem that
complicated to me to switch from a Mac to a
PC. So how can it possibly be that hard for a
PC user to adapt to a Mac?
To me it says a lot about the person. If you can't
adjust to a lousy computer because of being
stubborn, how can you adapt to other changes
throughout life?

Opinion Columnist
The Casual Observer' on 'The Casual Observer'
Why I write and what I think
BENJAMIN CORMACK
THE CASUAL OBSERVER
I started writing for TEC about a
month ago. In the beginning, I really
didn't know what I was going to write
about or what people were going to
expect from me.
Sometimes, like in the case of this
article, I'm up late at night just writing
about whatever comes to me. I was
watching an episode of the old show
"Quantum Leap" where Sam leaps into
the body of a Klan member, trying to
stop the hanging of a man leading
black people on a march to register
to vote. While watching it, I recalled
a thought I had earlier that day about
how Jim Henson's Muppets taught
me the joys and wonders of a diverse
world. Look for this article some time
in the future.
Since there is already a conserva-
tive writer on the staff, some may have
expected me to write more like a liberal.
I'm not really liberal myself and would
probably consider myself more of a
conservative. However, when I think
about conservative and liberal views,
it's more about ways of thinking than
political affiliation. Unfortunately,
political affiliation appears to be what
being conservative or liberal is about
nowadays. I think that you have to look
at problems from different perspectives,
be they conservative or liberal, and
choose whichever view provides the
most beneficial solution to a problem.
Some may wonder what my feel-
ings about President Bush are. Well the
truth is that 1 feel like 1 should support
him since so many lives depend on the
decisions he makes. However, I'm also
not stupid . Politics is a game where
you gain more points with the more
favors you promise, provide or are
provided for you. It's not my kind of
game. Also, I think that if being a politi-
cian was emphasized as an honor and
privilege rather than something with
privileges and if we had more regular
people involved in politics instead of
businessmen, lawyers and other such
individuals accustomed to privilege,
then maybe our government wouldn't
be facing such scrutiny. Also, in Bush's
defense, if someone had tried to have
my father assassinated as Saddam Hus-
sein has been alleged to have done in
1993 against former President Bush,
being nice to them is not the first thing
that would come to my mind.
I'm something of a religious person.
Frankly though, I haven't been to
church in a while. Bottom line is as long
as you practice a religion that promotes
something close to the Golden Rule, I
don't really have a problem with reli-
gions different from my own. I think
most religions believe that what you
put out is what you get back in the end
- you do good things, you'll receive
good things - do bad things, and you'll
receive bad things. 1 do believe that if
more of us practiced and kept in mind
at least some of the Ten Command-
ments, maybe people in our society
wouldn't feel the need to post them
outside of a courthouse. I mean come
on. I think there's a couple of them we
can all agree on. Murder: Bad, Stealing:
Bad. Have we just completely forgotten
right and wrong, or am I just naive?
Some would say I'm pretty black
and white, and I'd have to agree with
them. That doesn't mean 1 don't see
gray. I've done some pretty stupid
things, I've done some pretty smart
things - I've been kind, I've been mean
- I've tried to be good and instead done
bad things. I've even been faced with
situations no one would want to be in,
including a hostile situation involving
a gun. I'm not perfect, but I strive to
be a good person. 1 succeed, I fail and
I keep on going, trying to find mean-
ing in a world with very few answers
relevant to my questions. This is my
way of working in an apology to a
friend of mine that I wouldn't trade
for anyone or anything, and I hope he
realizes that.
I guess this opportunity as a writer
for TEC for me is a chance to maybe
reach some people and share some of
my experiences and insights of life so
that maybe in some small way I end
up helping them. For me, that is what
being a writer is about.
In My Opinion
Gender inequality in the corporate world
(KRT) � People who think Martha
Stewart got burned because of who
she was, not what she did, should
watch closely what's happening with
Bill Frist.
Appropriate questions have been
raised about whether the Senate major-
ity leader improperly sold stock benefit-
ing a medical company with family ties.
As with Stewart, these questions
have to do with timing. Why did Frist
sell stock when he did? The answer
to a similar question posed to Stewart
landed the millionaire businesswoman
in prison. Will millionaire Dr. Frist be
taken down the same road for his ill-
timed dump of Hospital Corporation
of America stock? Not likely.
In March 2004, when Stewart was
found guilty of four of the five counts
against her, one of the jurors celebrated the
verdict as "a victory for the little guys
Stewart, ratted out by friends, was
found guilty of lying to the government
about her sale of ImClone Systems Inc.
stock in December 2001, the day before
the stock plummeted.
The day after she sold her stock
came news that regulators had rejected
an application for a cancer drug by
ImClone.
It was the timing of the stock sale
that signaled to authorities something
might be fishy in Miss Martha's kitchen.
It's that same pungent smell that has
some people wanting regulators to look
into Dr. Frist's black bag.
The Washington Post reported last
week that questions are being raised
about the timing of Frist's decision
to dump all HCA stock in June. HCA,
the nation's largest for-profit hospital
chain, was founded by the senator's
father and owns hospitals nationwide.
Frist's brother sits on the HCA board.
A month after Frist sold, HCA's
stock took a 9 percent hit. It's not the
day before, as with Martha, but it still
seems odd.
Consumer watchdog groups such as
Public Citizen wonder why Frist, who
put his stock into a blind trust, chose
to sell when he did. They wonder if he
knew something other stockholders
didn't. The same questions were asked
about Martha.
The timing is also suspicious, critics
say, because Frist always claimed there
was no conflict of interest. Since the sale,
however, he's claimed it was done to avoid
the appearance of having any conflict.
Last week federal prosecutors in
New York subpoenaed HCA documents
related to Frist's sale. The SEC also is
looking into the matter.
A Frist spokeswoman told reporters
the senator "did not have any conversa-
tions with HCA executives about HCA
stock when he was making the decision
to divest Wordsmiths ought to study
that quote. It will likely come up again.
Incidentally, Stewart was never con-
victed of insider trading, just lying.
Actually, "She got in trouble because
her reputation as a vicious, humorless
ice-queen overshadowed her talents
wrote Henry Blodget, a former securi-
ties analyst, in Slate. By contrast, Frist,
charged with nothing, is seen as a
squeaky-clean Marcus Welby, M.D.
That may soon change.
The rules that applied to a woman
named Stewart in New York don't neces-
sarily apply to a man named Frist from
Tennessee. Reportedly, at least seven
HCA executives sold 574,882 shares
worth nearly $20 million between May
17 through June 10.
Don't expect what happened to
Stewart to happen to Frist. Frist is not
only a mover and shaker in Washing-
ton, he's also one of the most powerful
Republican allies in Congress for the
Bush administration. The Bushvolk
need him as much as they need House
Majority Leader Tom DeLay who, by
the way, is up to his neck in naughty.
Senate Ethics Committee investigations
into his alleged wrongdoing have gone
nowhere. Boys will be boys.
Meanwhile, Republican lobbyist
Jack Abramoff, who strutted like a
peacock over his congressional con-
nections, is now singing like a canary
about his business relationships, one of
which was with DeLay. Abramoff was
indicted last month on wire fraud and
conspiracy charges.
Pirate Rant
I cant believe people have the audac-
ity to insult New Orleanltes for
living where they (used to) live. If
someone had said that to you after
Hurricane Fran, Floyd or at least a
dozen other hurricanes, you'd have a
hard time not lashing out violently.
Think about that the next time
a hurricane hits your house, over
and over, over and over, over and
over, again, and again, and again.
To the girl that complains about not
being treated like a female: If you
want to be treated with class, don't
wear clothing that screams for a
booty call. It's that simple.
This is for everyone who is in any
kind of social organization, club
or group: The second you define
yourself by that organization, club
or group is when you become just
another stereotype.
Why do people have to ride their bicycles
down the sidewalks between Austin and
the dance building? Last time I checked,
it was a side-WALK, not a side-bike.
To the lady making coffee in Java City
at the Wright Place WHY ARE YOU
SO ANGRY EVERY DAY? We're sorry
that we want coffee and it gets busy
in the morning. You get paid to make
coffee try to be nice while doing so.
Hmm? Who really picks what rant
is published?
Why did we need the comment about
black people not being African-Ameri-
can? The last time I checked my ances-
tors, and yes I am African-American,
were brought over here and the "black
people" you see here today are descen-
dants from them. Whoever wrote
that comment is ignorant and that is
why there is still racial tension today.
That's why we "black people" can't just
let things go, because it s people like
YOU that remind us of it everyday.
The sorority girls in my marketing
class continuously make outlandish
and stupid comments. Their dire
need to speak out when the teacher
is speaking is motivated by their
involvement in some feeble organiza-
tion that promotes ideals of self-ser-
vice and promiscuity. Most people at
this school do not like or agree with
Greek life, so represent your organiza-
tion with tact and use less topics of
conversation that insight that you're
mildly impaired in the brain.
God Bless the hot girl that was
sunbathing on the grass in front of
West End Dinning Thursday around
11:30. Seeing you sure did put a
smile on my face!
Why do I always get stuck behind the
three "ladies" that insist on walking
slower than molasses down the side-
walk? 1 wouldn't mind if they didn't
take the whole sidewalk up, making
me and others have to walk in the
bushes or the street to pass them.
Thank you features section for print-
ing all these recipes. Thanks to you,
I've got dinner and drinks planned
for this weekend.
Kristin Murnane needs to keep writ-
ing features opinion pieces. That arti-
cle on taking classes with freshmen
was hilarious. Keep writing, you're
finally bringing some excitement to
your section.
I am the person who made the com-
ment to the person who made the
remark about African Americans in
Louisiana and 1 do have my facts
straight, obviously you don't. I didn't
make the rant because you called Afri-
can Americans black -I made the rant
because you made a slick comment
about them not evacuating. I consider
myself African American and you or
nobody else can change that. What
a person wants to call themselves is
their business not yours.
You think people would realize by
now to turn their cell phones off or
at least put them on vibrate before
coming to class. It's really annoying
when someone's obnoxious ring tone
comes on when you're trying to listen
to the professor.
1 noticed that you don't run Tony
McKee's picture beside his column
any longer? Is this a strategic move
to increase circulation?
To the person who criticized the
sorority girl for misspeliing a word:
I hate to Dreak it to you, but people
who aren't Greek actually misspell
words too. In fact, it's a pretty
common error made by people
worldwide - WEIRD? I know. It's
about as common as ignorant state-
ments made by judgmental and
misinformed individuals toward
certain groups, which they seem to
know nothing about.
Just because 1 go to ECU does not
mean I want to waste my college
years "getting wasted Some of us
want an education and a good GPA,
thank you.
In response to the a that wrote
about African Americans in Loui-
siana and their economic status or
whatever, 1 know everything does
not have to be politically correct but
there is a call for that at times and
African American is the proper way
to address people of African descent.
Furthermore if you are born in Africa
and you move to the U.S. you are still
African. If vou were born in the U.S.
then it might be another issue. Just
try to be more respectful.

Budget decorating: It can be done
Trends that won't hurt
your wallet
EMILY JORDAN
STAFF WRITER
Horoscopes:
College life can be expen-
sive. Students have to buy their
books, school supplies, clothes
and some even have to pay for
their own tuition. And the last
thing you want to worry about
is how you're going to decorate
your house or your dorm room,
because it's going to cost a small
fortune. But, it doesn't have to.
There are plenty of discount
stores around Greenville, like Wal-
Mart, Ross and TJ Maxx that can
all offer great ways to decorate on
a budget. These stores are great
places to get decorating acces-
sories at very reasonable prices.
Target, however, seems to offer
the most hip and trendy things
that college students are look-
ing for to spruce up their cribs.
At Target you can buy almost
anything but a kitchen sink, which
is Ideal for the all-in-one-shopper
who doesn't like to shop around.
Greenville traffic can be hard
to navigate at times and Target
offers ways around that stress.
While it can be fun to venture
out to the store, Target.com easily
categorizes your decorating needs
all at the click of a mouse. You
can shop by dorm room, living
room, kitchen, bedroom, office
and even by laundry room.
Great for students on a
budget, the dorm room option
allows you to shop by price,
though items for your kitchen,
bathroom and living room are
also listed in this option. For
less than $10 you can buy towels
and various lighting fixtures.
They have tons of cool string
lights, perfect for decorating and
lighting those tiny dorm rooms.
For fewer than $15 you can
get really nice, heavy glassware,
wild and colorful shower cur-
tains and pillows. Beanbag chairs
are a comfortable and inexpen-
sive way to furnish your dorm
room or even your living room
- Target lists them for fewer than
$20. If you're not into bean bag
chairs, dish chairs are lightweight
and come in a variety of colors.
Always wanted a down comforter
for your bed? You can get them
for about $27, which certainly
beats the price anywhere else.
Big furniture items are going to
cost more, of course, but you can
still find wooden bookcases for
less than $60.
Say you just moved into a new
apartment and you don't have
any furniture, well Target offers
those large furniture items, like
beds, dressers, armoires, enter-
tainment centers, tables, chairs,
couches, you name it. Futons
are great for space saving, and
you can buy one for fewer than
$200. A natural wood colored 5-
piece dining set is only $199.99
- that's a great price compared to
the prices at furniture stores.
As you can see there are tons
more options if you shop at
Target online compared to physi-
cally going to the store - this is
because each individual store
caters to the specific needs of that
specific area, while the online
store must cater to a broader
Celebrity Profile: Oprah Winfrey's success
Aries: Love is the most persuasive
tool in your entire collection. Not the
jealous type - that won't work. Be
compassionate.
Taurus: You'll find that once you
get your workspace arranged just
the way you want it, production will
increase enormously with much
less effort.
Gemini: You don't mind doing the
research when it means you'll win in
the end. In this case, the people you
love win, too. That's really a win-win
situation.
Cancer You'll find that the money
you put into real estate and-or
home improvement is an excellent
investment. It'll grow even more than
expected.
Leo: You're climbing up to the next
level of enlightenment. It's a thrill,
but you'll also notice there's still a
ways to go.
Virgo: Ask the people who owe you
to pay you. It certainly won't hurt, and
could even give you enough to pay
off somebody else you know.
Libra: New friends will fill you In on
the rules of a new game. You'll be
very good at this, once you get a
little practice.
Scorpio: Your secret communication
channels are open, but take care. It's
best if they don't know how much you
know, or how you found out
Sagittarius: Travel looks very good
now, as do contacts with foreigners.
You could end up with a lot more
of whatever you want than you
expected.
Capricorn: The best offers that you're
getting won't pay off for a while. This Oprah just celebrated the beginning of her 20th on-air season

gratification.
range of people. The biggest dis-
advantage to shopping online is
that shipping and handling will
be added to your bill - bummer,
because those charges can get
pretty hefty depending on the
size of what you buy. So although
there are more choices of items
online, beware of buying heavy
furniture online, unless you are
prepared to pay for big snipping
charges. Sometimes buying from
discount furniture stores could
be a good alternative. Basically,
you'll just need to shop around
for the best prices.
Junior elementary education
major, Kristen Wall said, "Target
is one of my favorite places to
get new decorating items. We
just moved into a new house
and Target really helped keep
the cost down and the aesthetic
appeal up
But for those smaller decora-
tive items, the shipping costs
won't be great. Target is known
for carrying trendy items that are
attractive, affordable and some-
times good quality, depending on
the specific item. College apart-
ments and houses are meant to
be fun. Don't try to put too much
emphasis on buying very expen-
sive furniture when you can buy
functional, fun things to tide you
over until the real world.
Target provides an equal mix
of fun furniture and decorating
items and items that you will
want in your home forever. So
while in college, think cheap,
think cute, try Target.

Truly from rags to riches
story
SARAH CAMPBELL
STAFF WRITER
Born in Kosciusko, Miss, on
Jan. 29, 19S4 during a time of
immense racial tension, Oprah
Winfrey has thrived from her
hardships rather than allow
them to drag her down. Instead
of accepting her likely fate as an
uneducated woman she learned
at a very early age that hard work
and dedication are the keys to
success.
At the tender age of three
Oprah began to read aloud and
perform recitations on the farm
that she lived on with her grand-
mother. When she turned six, she
went to live with her mother in
Milwaukee, but after suffering
abuse and molestation she ran
away at age 13. She eventually
ended up living in Nashville
with her father, Vernon Winfrey
whose strict discipline forced
her to read and write as much
as possible.
"He had concerns about me
making the best of my life
said Oprah at achievement.org.
Lucky for her, his concern is
one of the driving factors in her
receiving an education. While
still in high school at the age
of 17 Oprah received her first
job at WVOL radio in Nashville.
Prior to graduating she majored
in Speech Communications and
Performing Arts at Tennessee
State University.
During college she joined
WTVF-TV in Nashville as an
anchor and became the young-
est and first African-American
woman to work there. She first
dabbled her toes in the talk
show circuit in 1976 as the co-
host of "People Are Talking in
Baltimore.
Her career skyrocketed in
1984 when she moved to Chicago
to host the struggling talk show
"AM Chicago After hosting there
for just one month the show's
ratings increased making it the
number one local talk show. The
show extended its length to one
hour and was renamed "The
Oprah Winfrey Show" in less
than a year.
"The Oprah Winfrey Show"
was syndicated nationally begin-
ning in 1986 and soon became
the highest rated talk show in
television history. Due to the
success of her career Oprah found
time for one of her other passions,
acting.
In 198S Oprah played in
Steven Spielberg's adaptation
of The Color Purple, written by
Alice Walker. Prior to this per-
formance she earned support-
ing actress nominations for an
Oscar and Golden Globe award.
Oprah was later praised for her
work in the film adaptation of
Richard Wright's classic novel,
Native Sun.
Oprah established her own
production company, Harpo
Productions Inc in 1986 out
of her desire to bring quality
entertainment projects to life.
Harpo Productions Inc. acquired
ownership and responsibilities
for "The Oprah Winfrey Show
in 1988. This acquisition made
Oprah the first woman in history
to own and produce her own
talk show.
After such success Oprah
found it was time to start giving
back. Her first step in doing so
was taken in 1991 when she ini-

Underage drinking at ECU bad idea for students
It's not as
cool as you think
TOMEKA STEELE
SENIOR WRITER
Underage drinking across
college campuses and universi-
ties is on the rise in the United
States. Many students that are
underage consume alcoholic-
beverages like they are the legal
age. Students need to be aware
of the consequences that come
with underage drinking on and
around campus.
When people start drinking
at a young age it makes them
more susceptible to alcohol-
ism. Many students may think
that they don't have a problem
because it's so easy to go to a
party and down drink after drink
and not have anyone tell them
when they've had enough.
The repertoire amongst stu-
dents is that drinking is cool and
a way to enhance fun. Legal age
student drinkers and underage
drinkers should consider the
penalties before taking a sip.
Most underage drinkers get
their alcohol from a friend who
is of age. What students don't
understand is that since the legal
aged person bought the alcohol
they will be partly responsible if
something should go wrong.
The ECU police are out
nightly downtown and around
Greenville responding to calls
that may charge those students
who are in violation of liquor
laws. Students who are caught
are fined after a breathalyzer
confirms that they have drunk
more than the legal limit if they
are legal aged or underage.
The students that receive
drinking tickets are sometimes
fined, have to go to court and
have to do community service or
possibly have a curfew depending
on the severity of the drinking
offense.
Some consequences of under-
age drinking include car acci-
dents, sexual assaults, unin-
tentional death or injury, risky
sexual behavior, suicide attempts,
vandalism, violence and homi-
cide. Most underage drinkers are
still in the process of physical
development and heavy alcohol
use can have negative effects on
development and brain struc-
ture.
According to a 2004 report
from The National Academies
titled Reducing Underage Drink-
ing: A Collective Responsibility,
individuals under the age of
21 commit 45 percent of rapes,
44 percent of robberies and 37
percent of other assaults and it
is estimated that SO percent of
violent crime is alcohol-related.
With ECU'S increasing
number of robberies and sexual
assaults over the last few years
one can only wonder if those
acts were alcohol-related. Date
rape and alcohol go hand in hand
around college campuses.
Students often leave their
drinks unattended and criminals
are lacing drinks with rohypnol.
Date rapists use this untraceable,
odorless, colorless drug to alter
the states of those who drink
it and render them incapable
of making sound judgments.
Students should be mindful of
this and always protect their
drink whether they are of legal
age or not.
Senior recreational therapy
major, Hayley Tate said, "Besides
the fact that underage drinking
is illegal, it can get you into way
more trouble than it's worth.
Waiting till you are 21 to drink
responsibly and legally is much
smarter
If a person under the age of
21 drives with a blood alcohol
level of .02 or higher (compared
to the adult level of .08 or .10),
that person will be considered
in violation of the law, accord-
ing to the Journal of Studies of
Alcohol.
Students who are underage
can always have fun without the
presence of alcohol. ECU offers
activities on campus during all
major events such as Halloween
where all events are alcohol
free. It's a great alternative to
the downtown scene and many
students take this option instead
of dealing with the madness of
downtown Greenville.
It is essential to know the con-

national database of convicted
child abusers. President Bill
Clinton signed the "Oprah Bill"
into law in 1993 which made
this information available to law
enforcement agencies and inter-
ested parties across the country.
Another way Oprah has given
back is through her private char-
ity, The Oprah Winfrey Founda-

organizations that support the
education and empowerment of
women, children and families
in the United States. She also
provides scholarships through
"The Oprah Winfrey Scholars

give back to their communities.
Oprah's Angel Network was
established in 1998 and has
received $30 million to date
with 100 percent of audience
donations going to nonprofit
organizations. The network has
helped establish scholarships
and schools, support women's
shelters and build youth centers
and homes across the country as
well as throughout the world.
In 1998 she also received a
Lifetime Achievement Award

sequences of underage drinking
and over drinking. Something
that may seem fun and innocent
can potentially end in disaster.
If you are going to host a party,
one great way to be sure that
you do not get in trouble with
the police is to check ID. Then
there can be no dispute about
whether you and your room-
mates sold alcohol to minors.
It's hard avoiding alcohol
because this is college and most
of the student population will
drink at some point or another
but students need to remember
if they are underage it's still
against the law and having
underage drinking on your crimi-
nal record could hurt you or a
potential career in the future.

Ladd gets maximum
rookie terms in deal
with Hurricanes
The Carolina Hurricanes
signed first-round draft pick
Andrew Ladd to a three-year
contract - the most allowed
for a rookie - and included
bonuses, the team's president
and general manager said
Tuesday. The 19-year-old Ladd,
selected fourth overall in the
National Hockey League Entry
Draft In 2004, will receive
$688,940 at the NHL level In the
first two years of the contract
and $984,200 in the third year.
Those salaries are the maximum
for rookies drafted In 2004
under the terms of the collective
bargaining agreement, the team
said. Ladd will also receive a
signing bonus of $590,520 to
be paid in the first two years
of the contract, the Hurricanes
said. He also has the potential
to earn the maximum entry-
level performance bonuses,
totaling $850,000 per year. The
contract is a two-way contract,
allowing Ladd to play in the
American Hockey League at
the rate of $70,300 per season.
In 2004-05, Ladd played his
final season of junior hockey
with the Calgary Hitmen of
the Western Hockey League,
appearing in 65 regular-season
games. He finished third on the
team in scoring with 45 points
(19 goals, 26 assists) while
accumulating a team-high 167
penalty minutes. Ladd played in
all 12 of Calgary's postseason
games and led the team with
seven goals. He added four
postseason assists to rank
second on the team In playoff
scoring (11 points).
Aikman, Staubach
make first hire
Hall of Fame Racing made
its first hire Tuesday when
it tabbed Philippe Lopez to
build the NASCAR team owned
by former Dallas Cowboys
quarterbacks Roger Staubach
and Troy Aikman. Lopez was
hired as a crew chief and will
be In charge of getting the
Nextel Cup team ready to debut
next season. The team has yet
to hire a driver for the car that
will be sponsored by Texas
Instruments. Lopez, who was
most recently working in the
research and development
department at Richard Chlldress
Racing, was one of the first hires
the late Dale Earnhardt made
when he formed his Cup team.
Hall of Fame Racing also hired
Len Batycki as vice president
of marketing and John Fuller as
comptroller.
Injury pains Jets,

Testaverde returns
Chad Pennington's season
is done and his future with
the New York Jets is in doubt
as he heads for a second
rotator cuff surgery. Coach
Herman Edwards said Tuesday
his starting quarterback is out
for the rest of 2005 with a torn
rotator cuff, the same Injury
he had repaired in February.
Pennington re-injured his right
shoulder in Sunday's 26-20
overtime loss to Jacksonville.
Backup Jay Fiedler, who
replaced Pennington, also went
down with a serious shoulder
injury, and Edwards said 'it
could be the season, as well"
for him. Vinny Testaverde, 41,
who led the Jets to the 1998
AFC title game and was the
starter before Pennington
replaced him in 2002, was
signed Tuesday, although
third-stringer Brooks Bollinger
will start Sunday at Baltimore.
Edwards said Testaverde will
be the No. 2 quarterback,
and the team planned to sign
another quarterback. An MRI
exam Monday revealed the
tear to Pennington's rotator cuff.
Pennington and Fiedler were
both In Alabama on Tuesday
consulting with Dr. James
Andrews, the noted orthopedist
who performed the surgery on
Pennington's shoulder earlier
this year. Testaverde, who started
for Dallas last season, took a
physical at the Jets' training
complex before he was signed.
A Purple Fever fantasy
ECU marketing unveils the State Farm
Siudent Sideline Pass
SCOTTY WILLIAMS
STAFF WRITER
One of the most electrifying moments in all of
ECU sports occurs on select Saturdays in the fall. The
only place to experience this moment is in Dowdy-
Ficklen Stadium, and the moment doesn't last long.
This is the moment when the purple smoke
starts flying, "Purple Haze" comes blaring over
the speakers at full blast and an army of unstop-
pable purple people eaters (apologies to Minnesota
Vikings fans) emerges from the yellow tunnel. It's
the peak of excitement for Pirates and pirate fans
alike because that's the signal for game time. A
week of predictions, press and preparation is over
and the Pirates are ready to put up or shut up. At
that moment, it's a near-guarantee that most of
the fans would love to be wearing that purple and
yellow and running out of the tunnel to thousands
of screaming fans.
That chance is now available to every student at ECU.
As part of a promotion sponsored by State Farm
Insurance, ECU Sports Marketing is offering any
full-time student the chance to experience an ECU
home football game from the best seats in the house,
right on the field. Every week before a home football
game, a winner will be randomly selected and will
be able to take a friend to the game to watch from
the sidelines with the State Farm Student Sideline
see PURPLE FEVER page A7 Any one of these fans pictured could have the honor of watching a game from ECU'S sidelines this year.
Players would agree to
20-game suspension for
first offense of policy
(AP) � Baseball players are willing to again
toughen the sport's drug policy, offering to accept a
20-game penalty instead of 10 days for first-time ste-
roid offenders along with tests for amphetamine use.
The proposal, outlined Monday in a letter from
union head Donald Fehr to commissioner Bud Selig,
fell short of what management wants.
In an April 25 letter to the union, Selig called
for a 50-game suspension for an initial positive test,
a 100-game ban for second-time offenders and a
lifetime ban for a third violation.
Fehr's response said Selig's proposal was meant
to quiet criticisms of baseball's current policy, not
deter steroid use.
"We share your concern about the criticism
our program has received, and, in response, the
players have demonstrated, several times now,
their willingness to take all reasonable measures
in response Fehr wrote.
Nine players received 10-day suspensions this
year under the MLB program, with Baltimore's
Raf;f! Palmeiro the most prominent.
"Doubling it is good Orioles player repre-
sentative Jay Gibbons said before Monday night's
game against the New York Yankees. "I think 10 is
a little light.
"Ten you can get away with as a team. You can
do without a guy for 10 days, but 20, you're kind
of hurting your ballclub, too
Fehr's letter came ahead of Wednesday's con-
gressional hearings on steroids in sports, the latest
in a series of sessions on Capitol Hill. Selig and
Fehr ar: expected to join'the commissioners and
union heads of the NFL, NBA and NHL in testify-
ing about legislation to standardize testing and
punishment.
One of the proposed bills is sponsored by
Sen. Jim Bunning, a Kentucky Republican and
former pitcher who's a member of baseball's Hall
of Fame.
"It's an embarrassment. Donald Fehr has
embarrassed the people he represents. He says to
the American people in that letter, 'We don't care
what you think; 20 games is all we think is neces-
sary Bunning said Tuesday. "He basically says, 'In
your face. Twenty games, take it or leave it That's
completely unacceptable to the Congress
Fehr said he released the union's position
because of the upcoming hearing and to ensure
players are up to date before they scatter when the
regular season ends Sunday. He's met separately with
players on all 30 teams since April "to give every-
body an opportunity to weigh in who wanted to.
"We knew we were dealing with 2006 all along.
I never saw the crisis to do something in a short-
circuited process he said.
Fehr said the sides disagree "on what the first
penalty should be and the first penalty range
"We always thought there was a need for a
review he said. "You don't have a cookie-cutter
approach. The better approach if you can is to gauge
the individual facts and circumstances
Fehr said that while Selig publicly called for 50-
game suspensions for first offenders, management
negotiators proposed it be a range of 50-60 games,
giving players the right to ask an arbitrator to lower
it to 40 games.
Rob Manfred, executive vice president of labor
relations in the commissioner's office, did not
return a telephone call seeking comment.
"Twenty games are not enough baseball
spokesman Rich Levin said. "Also, the union's pro-
posal is not three strikes and you're out. It is three
strikes and maybe you're out
Baseball began testing for steroids in 2003, but
players were not identified by name. Because more
than 5 percent of tests were positive, penalties
began in 2004 under rules that were scheduled to
run through 2006. Players agreed in January to
reopen the agreement, and agreed to suspensions
for first-time offenders starting in 2005.
"I think it's great Detroit's Brandon Inge said
of the union's response. "I'm glad they're cleaning
up the sport. I don't like it that anything can be
tainted with an illegal substance. It's just going to
make the playing field a little more level
Fehr said that during recent negotiations with
management, the union agreed to have:
Every player tested at the start of spring training
and at least one additional time.
The possibility that a first-time offender's suspen-
sion could rise up to 30 games if there were aggravat-
ing factors, or be lowered to as few as 10 games if an
arbitrator finds mitigating circumstances.
The penalty for a second positive steroid test increase
from 30 days to 7S games, with the possibility an
arbitrator could increase it to as many as 100 games or
lower it to as few as SO games.
The commissioner impose "such discipline as you
believe appropriate, including a permanent ban" for a
third positive test "provided that it is consistent with
just cause and subject to arbitral review
First-time offenders for amphetamine use receive
treatment, with discipline starting with a second
offense.
Much of the drug program's administration moved to
a "jointly selected independent expert" from the current
management-union joint committee.
The provision calling for the program to be halted in
the event of a government investigation be narrowed.
Some congressmen have criticized baseball
for not adopting the standard of the World Anti-
Doping Agency, which in most cases calls for two-
year suspensions for first offenses and lifetime bans

USA will not have to deal with in the new-look Liberty Bowl.
Liberty Bowl now
a battle of David
and Goliath
SEC tie-in puts C-USA
on bottom rung
ERIC QILMORE
SENIOR WRITER
The AutoZone Liberty
Bowl took a severe hit when it
announced a tie-in with the
Southeastern Conference on
Wednesday. The bowl lost its gran-
deur in another quiet reminder
that ECU needs to jump the con-
ference ship as fast as possible.
The C-USA champion will
now possibly play the No. 6, 7
or 8 team from the SEC. Instead
of pitting two conference cham-
pions against one another, the
C-USA champion will be forced
with a third-tier SEC team.
The SEC champion will auto-
matically qualify for a BCS bowl.
The second team could also
qualify for the BCS or be selected
to the Capital One Bowl. If the
second team is selected for an at-
large birth in the BCS, then the
Captial One Bowl would receive
the third selection and so forth.
The third through the fifth selec-
tions will be chosen from the
Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, Outback
Bowl and SBC Cotton Bowl.
That's finally when the
AutoZone Liberty Bowl comes
into play. How sad is it that ECU
could go undefeated and play a
mediocre 6-6 SEC team? Terry
Holland, say it ain't so.
Remember the mystique of
the 2004 AutoZone Liberty Bowl?
Two teams with one combined
loss vying for national respect.
The tainted and flawed BCS
couldn't interrupt a great match-
up between the C-USA and
Mountain West qualifiers.
Louisville and Boise State

of all time. Louisville won the
classic New Year's Eve match-up

Weis used play from dying 10-year-old
Wels embraces Cathy Mazurkiewlcz, mother of Montana.
(KRT) � No wonder we're falling in love with
Charlie Weis. Notre Dame's new coach revealed
Sunday he used a play sent in by a 10-year-old
boy dying of an inoperable brain tumor on Sat-
urday during his 3-1 team's 36-17 victory over
Washington.
Weis met with Montana Mazurkiewlcz, his
mother Cathy and brother Rockne on Wednesday,
three weeks after the boy had been informed by
doctors there was nothing they could do to stop
the spread of the tumor. Weis showed up at the
Mazurkiewlcz home In Mishawaka, Ind just
east of campus, and spoke with Montana about
his tumor and about Weis' 10-year-old daughter
Hannah, who has global development delay, a rare
disorder similar to autism.
He told Montana about some pranks he played
on Joe Montana while they were roommates at
Notre Dame. "1 gave him a chance to hammer me
on the Michigan State loss, which he did very well.

In addition to the sideline
seat, the lucky fan will also
receive a free T-shirt and will get
the opportunity to run through
the tunnel and onto the football
field with the Pirates. The fan
will also get recognition over the
public address system.
The event is being put
together by Craig Curtis, the
Assistant AD for Marketing.
Sports Marketing Intern Jason
Martin feels that the event
will be very positive for all
involved.
"It's another way to get a
sponsor in and get some advertis-
ing, and we can also work with
the students and the Student
Pirate Club to get students a little
closer to the action said Martin.
Entries are already being
taken for the home opener
against Southern Miss, and
registering is simple. Log on to
the Athletic Department Web
site ecupirates.com and enter in
your information and you're in
the hat.
The contest is sure to be
packed. With just four home
games remaining on the ECU
football schedule, only four
students out of the tens of thou-
sands that pack Dowdy-Ficklen
will get this very unique and
extraordinary opportunity.
For students who get the
Purple Fever every weekend, this
is a great chance to get an inside
look at Pirate football and enjoy
the best seat in Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium. Most importantly,
they get to live out the ultimate
ECU football fantasy of being
on the sideline. For any stu-
dents who never played sports
in high school, it's a chance to
experience the pre-game "high"
that every athlete feels before
breaking the tape in their home
stadium.
So don't just sit in the stands
with everyone else when you
could do something special on
a gameday weekend and get the
athlete treatment every sports
fan has dreamed about since
they first saw a Pirate football
game. You're only a few clicks
away from standing in the yellow
tunnel and bursting through the
purple smoke into a world few get
to experience.

had given him. Montana tried to
throw the ball, but could barely
lift it. So Weis climbed into the
reclining chair with him and
helped him complete the pass
to his mother. Before he left,
Weis asked Montana if there was
anything he could do. He agreed
to let Montana call the first play
against Washington. He called
"pass right
Montana never got to see
that play materialize. He died
on Friday.
Weis told the team about
the visit and then dedicated the
game to Montana. He called
Montana's mother Friday night
to assure her he still would call
the play. "I just wanted our play-
ers to realize they represent a lot
of people that they don't even
realize they're representing
Weis said.
Notre Dame received and
got the ball on its own one, but
Weis never forgot his promise. He
called for a rollout right and the
play wound up being a 13-yard
completion from Brady Quinn to
tight end Anthony Fasano. It is
now the newest chapter in Notre
Dame folklore.
Weis called the family after the
game and arranged for the team
to autograph a ball he brought
to the Mazurkiewicz's house.

Conversely, Louisville, con-
sidered to be the best team in

Orange Bowl.

Sure, Louisville is no longer
in C-USA. But several good teams
still are. All (with the exception
of Marshall and UTEP) are in a
close proximity to Memphis. It
was only natural that C-USA's
7-3 record would help them be
affiliated with their premier
bowl as they had been since their
inception in 1996.
But the problem is that the
SEC is in close proximity as
well. Bowl officials wanted to
draw on regional match-ups to
peak fansinterest. Evidence
was the announcement made
Wednesday.
"We are particularly excited
about renewing our relationship

Commissioner Britton Banowsky
on C-USA's Web site in a press
release.
Banowsky has run C-USA
into the ground. Taking over for
Mike Slive (the current SEC com-
missioner), he added little punch
in the realignment process.
He moved the headquarters to
Irving, Texas after forming this
whacky Texas alignment.
It's a shame that the SEC won't
provide a quality squad. How
much longer will ECU allow for
Banowsky to settle? Until then,
he will continue to dig our grave.
I just hope then, it's not too late.
