SGA looks to make a difference
Above: The Shipmates program for incoming freshmen. Below: Ben Wyche speaks about promoting a positive image for SGA.
Students active in a
variety of functions
ZACKHILL
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Just over a month into the
2005 fall semester, the SGA is in
full swing. Senators and officers
are gearing up for a busy year with
a variety of activities and events.
On the weekend of Sept. 30
through Oct. 2, ECU delegates
attended a weekend retreat at Camp
Monroe in Laurel Hill, North Caro-
lina sponsored by the UNC Associa-
tion of Student Governments. The
retreat was a chance for universities
to gather and exchange ideas about
the nature of student government.
"I came back with a lot of
great ideas said Abey Dessie,
sophomore psychology major.
"There was a lot of bouncing
off of ideas between each other
During the retreat, students
discussed a variety of topics
from trying to reduce student
expenditures through more
efficient book sale and buyback
methods to a proposed reduc-
tion in federal financial aid.
Participating universities also
shared what makes SGA unique
on their campuses.
The Shipmates Program at
ECU is entering its second year
with high hopes. Because fresh-
men do not have a G.P.A. upon
entering college, they are not
allowed to join the SGA Senate.
The Shipmates Program steps in
to train freshmen in leadership
techniques so they can be pre-
pared and make a contribution
in their subsequent semesters.
"So far it's going really good,
we have really diverse group
said Heather Dickson, SGA vice
president and senior public rela-
tions and political science major.
"They're all very talented
and very enthusiastic
Shipmates this year is differ-
ent from the 2004-05 program.
With a clearer picture of where
the program is headed, leaders
and participants alike are going
through a much more structured
and involved program. This year,
freshmen will spend more time
working for SGA, including 15
hours of required office time.
On Monday, Oct. 3 the SGA
Senate met in the social room in
Mendenhall. Ben Wyche, president
of the Senate and senior mathemat-
ics and special education major,
presided over the meeting.
"This year, I'm hoping we
can create a more positive image
of the SGA, and really get out
there and do what we're elected
to do, which is address the needs
of the students Wyche said.
SGA President M. Cole Jones,
senior marketing major, presented
new ideas for the SGA to pursue
this fall. At the top of the list is
creating membership cards for
students. The cards would iden-
tify students as part of SGA. The
cards could also function as a
promotional tool. Students found
to be carrying their card could be
randomly awarded T-shirts or tick-
ets to athletic or cultural events.
"Everyone is a member of
student government, you don't
have to be a senator to be in
SGA Jones said.
Jones also highlighted a
revamped SGA Web site, as well
as expressing concerns over file
sharing on campus networks. A
recycling initiative was intro-
duced to reduce printing costs
at ECU. The SGA will follow up
on this initiative itself by using
computer presentations instead
of printing copies for meetings.
SGA attorney Peter Romary
was in attendance, and spoke
about the need for student legal
representation at ECU. North
Carolina universities such as
UNC-Chapel Hill and North
Carolina State University already
have student legal services.
Currently, students can turn
to Romary for legal advice but he
is not capable of actually repre-
senting the student. Romary said
he worked on 960 student cases
last year that dealt with a wide
variety of offenses, including
tuition cases, felony drug traffick-
ing and copyright infringement.
The proposed legal service
would cost students $2.50 per
semester, or $5 for the entire
year. UNC-Chapel Hill currently
charges $5.91 per semester, or
$11.82 for the entire year. The
service would allow students to
get free legal advice and would
provide representation in cer-
tain matters for about half of a
regular public defender.
"Hopefully, this will benefit
students ad save them a lot of
money Romary said.
Crystal Herring, director of Cor-
porate Relations for the Greenville
Area American Heart Association
gave a presentation on the Down
East Heart Walk. The walk is sched-
uled to take place Oct. 22, with
proceeds benefiting heart research
in eastern North Carolina.
"The Heart Walk is the pre-
mier event for the American
Heart Association Herring said.
"ECU is a large force that can
do a lot of good things
Last year ECU raised $5,200.
This year's goal is $5,500. The
eastern North Carolina region
has raised about $600,000 for
research in the past few years.
"We look for the entire
campus community to support
us in all our endeavors and to
take student government to the
next level Jones said.

Romary has given free legal counseling to victims for 10 years
Crime-victim defender
to give lecture at ECU
Attorney does pro bono
work for violence victims
CHRIS MUNIER
NEWS EDITOR
Peter J.M. Romary, attorney
at law, has been giving free legal
advice to victims of domestic vio-
lence for 10 years, and he will speak
at ECU Monday, Oct. 10 at 4 p.m. in
Bate 1021 about the lack of educa-
tion regarding domestic violence.
His message will be about the
lack of attention domestic vio-
lence receives despite evidence
of a pervasive problem.
"The Centerfor Disease Control
has classified domestic violence
as an epidemic said Romary.
Furthermore, Romary wants
to educate people about who is
affected by domestic violence.
"There is no class stratum
that is immune to domestic vio-
lence Romary said.
"That is one of the things we
need to overcome through educa-
tion - to let people know anyone
can be a victim of violent crime
His description of violent
crime is wide-ranging. It can be
anything from beatings to sexual
assault to mind control. He said
people do not have to be beaten
and bruised to be considered vic-
tims of domestic violence.
"I've had people tell me the
mental is worse than the physi-
cal Romary said.
"We've had cases where
people have been put down,
yelled at, screamed at, told dif-
ferent things about themselves,
their finances have been con-
trolled, who they talk to is con-
trolled and it's a cumulative
effect, that after a while, their life
is no longer their own and there
is such fear
Romary is active in taking his
case for reform to the public and
the government. He said it is not
any specific entity he opposes,
but he wants to get everyone
interested in his plight. Violence
rates in North Carolina are not
lowering quicklyenough for
Romary, who thinks the govern-
ment has to be committed to
this effort.
"To not do it is the crime
Romary said.
There have been two domes-
tic violence acts recently, one in
2004 and one this year.
"My role in that was giving
advice to the House Commit-
tee on Domestic Violence with
regard to changes in criminal
law and civil law and on getting
domestic violence education
and training put in place where
mechanisms provide domestic
violence prevention for educa-
tions in K-12 Romary said.
Romary said people should
understand how everyone in
society benefits from addressing
this problem.
"You look at the cost to indi-
viduals and the cost to the econ-
omy, so even if people don't care
about individuals involved, they
should care about the big picture,
the cost to us all Romary said.
The statistics done on domes-
tic violence show there are many
corporate leaders who have a
vested interest in this issue. Sixty-
six percent of senior executives
think speaking to their employ-
ees about domestic violence will
benefit their companies finan-
cially. Domestic violence costs
our country an estimated $67
billion each year.
One of Romary's most impor-
tant cases, in which he was able
to win $525 million to the estate
of a victim, was when he was
able to obtain a wrongful death
verdict. That sum is the largest
gained from a wrongful death in
North Carolina history.
That case, along with his 10
years of pro bono work, led him to
be selected by Lifetime Television
as one of 52 men honored for pre-
venting violence against women.
Romary, along with Senator
Hillary Rodham Clinton, Missy
Elliot, New York Mayor Michael
Bloomberg and former Mayor
Rudolph Giuliani were some of
the men and women honored by
Lifetime. His picture was put on
televisions around Time Square
in New York City with the other
honored members.
Romary encourages people to
get involved in helping the com-
munity in some way or another.
He said that is the most reward-
ing part of his job. He has been
motivated to do his job since he
was asked to help the mother of a
daughter with cerebral palsy. The
mother has been beaten in front
of her daughter.

Wilburn to be new leader of eastern regional Small Business, Tech Center
Wilburn promoted to
director of SBTDC
ZACK HILL
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
Wilburn will be head SBTDC.
ECU has named Carolyn Wil-
burn as the new director of the
� eastern regional Small Business
� and Technology Development
g Center, one of the main avenues
3 through which the state provides
I business development and tech-
3 nical assistance to the business
community.
"SBTDC is designed to help
entrepreneurs in our area with
management counseling includ-
ing financing, marketing, human
resources, operations, business
planning and feasibility assess-
ment said Wilburn.
"The services we provide are
becoming more critical in our
region as we help small busi-
nesses succeed and expand in a
more competitive global market
The SBTDC is a university-
based program that receives
funds on the state and federal
level. The program utilizes more
than 50 management counselors
in 17 offices.
"We provide counseling and
training to business owners,
trying to help them succeed
and improve their operations
Wilburn said.
Wilburn has been with the
Small Business and Technology
Center since its inception in
November 1985. For the major-
ity of her 20 years of service, she
worked as a counselor.
"I worked with existing busi-
ness owners, as well as prospec-
tive business owners, helping
them improve their companies
Wilburn said of her time as a
counselor.
Wilburn said that much of
rural and eastern North Carolina
was having trouble with job loss,
particularly in the manufactur-
ing sector. Because of this loss,
more people are venturing into
the business world solo.
"We're seeing a lot more
people start their own businesses,
and we want to make sure that
they are the right type of busi-
nesses that the economy can
support Wilburn said.
The program also helps ECU
business students by provid-
ing them with a chance to get
hands-on experience working
with businesses.
"We believe in what we do,
benefiting not only the compa-
nies and the economy, but the
students. They're getting real
world experience Wilburn
said.
"They actually work with the
companies, whether it's helping
them develop a marketing strat-

Bush chooses White House counsel Harriet Miers for Supreme Court
Miers Is President Bush's choice
to replace Justice O'Connor.
Washington (AP) � Presi-
dent Bush nominated White
House counsel Harriet
Miers to replace retiring Jus-
tice Sandra Day O'Connor on
the Supreme Court, reaching
into his loyal inner circle for
a pick that could reshape the
nation's judiciary for years to
come Monday.
"She has devoted
her life to the rule of law
and the cause of justice
said Bush, announcing his
choice from the Oval Office
with Miers at his side. "She
will be an outstanding addition
to the Supreme Court of the
United States
If confirmed by the Repub-
lican-controlled Senate,
Miers, 60, would join Justice
Ruth Bader Ginsburg as the
second woman on the nation's
highest court and the third to
serve there. Miers, who has never
been a judge, was the first woman
to serve as president of the Texas
State Bar. She is also a member of
the Dallas Bar Association.
Miers, who Bush called a
trailblazer for women in the legal
profession, said she was humbled
by the nod.
"If confirmed, I recognize I
will have a tremendous responsi-
bility to keep our judicial system
strong and to help insure the
court meets their obligations to
strictly apply the laws and Con-
stitution said Miers.
Democratic and Republican
special interests groups were
braced for a political brawl over
the pick, Bush's second. However,
the lack of a judicial record may
make it difficult for Democrats to
find ground upon which to fight
her nomination.
Senate Minority Leader
Harry Reid, D-Nev had
urged the administration to
consider Miers, two
congressional officials said. There
was a long list of staunchly con-
servative judges that Democrats
were poised to fight, Miers not
among them.
Bush, his approval
rating falling in recent months,
had been under intense
pressure to nominate a woman
or a minority.
Miers' pick came shortly
before Chief Justice John
Roberts was set to take his
seat on the court for the first
time Monday after breezing to
nomination. Miers helped
push his nomination through
the Senate.
"She will strictly interpret our
Constitution and laws. She will
not legislate from the bench
Bush said. Conservatives appar-
ently agreed.
"There's every indication that
she's very similar to Judge Roberts
- judicial restraint, limited role
of the court, basically a judicial
conservative said Republican
consultant Greg Mueller, who
works for several conservative
advocacy leaders.
The president offered the
job to Miers Sunday night over
dinner in the residence. He met
with Miers on four occasions
during the past couple of weeks,
officials said.

NC energy woes could raise
support for alternative fuels
RALEIGH, NC (AP) - Gas for $3 a
gallon. A 22 percent increase in
the price of natural gas. Hurricanes
shutting down pipelines that bring fuel
to North Carolina from the Gulf Coast.
The state's energy woes In the
past month have been tough on
businesses and consumers alike,
and experts warn such higher prices
could become the norm as overseas
demand for oil expands and North
Carolina's population grows.
But environmental groups and
legislators who want to start weaning
the state from fossil fuels see the
price spike as an opening to bring
alternative energy production - wind
turbines, agricultural fuels and solar
power - into the mainstream.
"It's a wake up call for us for sure
said Rep. Louis Pate, R-Wayne, and a
member of the North Carolina Energy
Policy Council, which sets the state's
energy policy.
"And it may be a long-term wake
up call
Blame hurricanes Katrina and Rita
for the most recent rise in energy
prices. Katrina's destruction blocked
gasoline supplies from moving up
two Southeast pipelines last month,
sending prices soaring across North
Carolina and drying up gas pumps in
isolated areas. When Rita damaged
gasoline refineries in Texas, gas
couldn't move through one of those
pipelines, sending prices higher again.
Such short-term fuel problems are
largely outside of North Carolina's
control, said Gov. Mike Easley, who
urged gas conservation and curbed
state-employee travel after the
hurricanes struck.
"North Carolina is totally dependent
on petroleum from the Gulf Coast
said Dennis Grady, director of The
Energy Center at Appalachian State
University in Boone.
"We saw the effects of that"
And long-term, without any fossil
fuels of its own to mine, the state is
expected to import $100 billion worth
of energy from out-of-state sources
during the next decade.
The state began efforts 30 years
ago to find long-term solutions
to dependence on traditional
energy sources, following the
Arab oil embargo that led to gas
lines nationwide. The State Energy
Office initially focused on energy
conservation, but today oversees 90
programs - from assisting industrial
plants and state buildings with energy
efficiency plans to jump-starting
alternative fuel projects.
North Carolina's terrain and agricultural
history make it a great location to
generate energy through alternative
means, said office director Larry
Shirley. For example, North Carolina
could generate 7 percent of Its
current electrical need through wind
power, according to state estimates.
The same map that shows large
areas of coastal counties and the
many mountain ridgelines where wind
turbines could generate electricity also
points out the many landfills and hog
farms that generate methane, another
potential alternative energy source.
"This state is rich in renewable
energy Shirley said.
National
Investigators search for cause
of upstate New York tour boat
accident that killed 21
LAKE GEORGE, NY (AP) - A postcard
perfect day of sailing along a placid
mountain lake suddenly turned
horrific when a tour boat with many
senior citizens aboard flipped over so
quickly that no one could put on a life
jacket. Twenty-one people were killed
and dozens more injured.
Police Initially said the 40-foot Ethan
Allen was swamped Sunday by the
wake of a larger tour boat nearby
and capsized, throwing its 48 or 49
passengers into the chilly, 68 degree
water. Later Sunday, police said
they didn't know the cause and the
investigation would continue.
The boat was sideways in the water,
and people were screaming Joanne
Rahal, who was in a boat on Lake
George when the Ethan Allen flipped,
told The Saratogian newspaper.
"Bodies were floating by our boat
U.S. Rep. John Sweeney, who talked
with survivors at the hospital, said
the boat flipped in about 30 seconds,
giving victims no time to react. The
sheriff said none of the passengers
was able to put on a life jacket.
Adult boat passengers are not
required to wear life jackets in New
York, but boats must carry at least one
life jacket per person.
"I saw plenty of life jackets in the
water, but nobody was in them Rick
Sause, whose family runs a motel
near where the accident took place,
told the newspaper.
Many of the bodies were laid out
along the shore, and the site was
blocked off with tarps by the police.
A hearse, police vehicles and several
sport utility vehicles later began
taking the dead from the scene.
The glass-enclosed boat was carrying
a tour group from the Trenton, Mich
area, and was sailing just north of the
village of Lake George, a popular tourist
destination about 50 miles north of
Albany in the Adirondack Mountains.
With calm waters, clear skies and
temperatures in the 70s, it seemed
perfect boating weather, and the
lake bustled with activity, the lake is
approximately 32 miles long and is
nearly 3 miles wide.
Twenty-seven people were taken
to a hospital in nearby Glens Falls.
Some suffered broken ribs and others
complained of shortness of breath.
Seven survivors were admitted, said
hospital spokesman Jason White.
He said the hospital had received
21 bodies. .
Officials gave conflicting information
on the number of dead and
passengers. Warren County Sheriff
Larry Cleveland said there were 48 or
49 people aboard, which was close to
the boat's maximum capacity of 50.

TWo Australians win Nobel Prize
In physiology or medicine
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -
Australians Barry J. Marshall and
Robin Warren have won the 2005
Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine
for showing that bacterial infection,
not stress, was to blame for painful
ulcers in the stomach and intestine.
The 1982 discovery transformed
peptic ulcer disease from a chronic,
frequently disabling condition to one
that can be cured by a short regimen
of antibiotics and other medicines, the
Nobel Prize committee said.
Thanks to their work, it has now
been established that the bacterium
Helicobacter pylori is the most
common cause of ulcers.
This was very much against prevailing
knowledge and dogma because it
was thought that peptic ulcer disease
was the result of stress and lifestyle
Staffan Normark, a member of the
Nobel Assembly at the Karolinska
institute, said at a news conference
announcing the winners.
Manyotherdiseases including Crohn's
disease, ulcerative colitis, rheumatoid
arthritis and atherosclerosis happen
because of chronic inflammation,
the assembly said in its citation,
adding that the Australians' discovery
stimulated the search for microbes
as possible reasons for other
inflammations.
Warren, 68, a pathologist from Perth,
Australia, "observed small curved
bacteria that were colonizing the
lower part of the stomach in about
50 percent of patients from which
biopsies had been taken the Nobel
Assembly said.
"He made the crucial observation that
signs of inflammation were always
present - close to where the bacteria
were seen
Marshall, 54, became interested In
Warren's findings. They initiated a
study of biopsies from 100 patients.
"After several attempts, Marshall
succeeded in cultivating a hitherto
unknown bacterial species - later
denoted Helicobacter pylori - from
several of these biopsies the
assembly said.
Together they found that the organism
was present in almost all patients with
gastric inflammation, duodenal ulcer
or gastric ulcer
Based on these results, they proposed
that Helicobacter pylori is involved in
causing these diseases. By culturing
the bacterium, they were able to make
studying it and the illnesses easier.
The institute's Nobel Assembly picked
the winners.
The process for selecting winners is
extremely secretive - nominations
are kept sealed for 50 years - leaving
Nobel-watchers little to go on in their
speculation.
The medicine prize includes a check
for $1.3 million, a diploma, gold medal
and a handshake with the king of
Sweden at the award ceremony in
Stockholm Dec. 10.
Crime from page A1 Leader from page A1
"It was right at the time my
daughter had been born, and
it really had an effect on me
Romary said.
"I can still remember that
very, very vividly - sitting at the
conference table and watching
the mother recount what had
happened to her and that it hap-
pened in front of her child
His field has a high burnout
rate for lawyers. He said they typi-
cally last only six months. How-
ever, Romary remains committed
after helping 700 clients.
"1 enjoy what I do, it's
stressful, it's nasty, I've had death
threats but at the end of the day,
I enjoy my work Romary said.
Romary has degrees from
the University of Reading in
the United Kingdom and from
UNC Chapel Hill. He is a
member of the North Carolina
and District of Columbia bar
associations.

Purple Fever still high on
Pirates' priority list
Catch the fever - purple fever, that is. Despite
a disappointing loss to Southern Mississippi
last weekend, the Pirates still have much to be
proud of. After an impressive victory over Duke
University in this season's opening game, the
Pirates have seen struggles come their way.
Our football team proved themselves a force
to be reckoned with in their game against
West Virginia.
Though our boys did not emerge victorious,
they played well and refused to let their oppo-
nents run away with the game. Considering
the fact that this team has faced three coach-
ing changes in just four years, their strong
performance has been impressive.
We at TEC are proud of our football team - as
well as all of our other athletic teams. We
would like to encourage the entire student
body at ECU to show their support for our ath-
letes, whether it be in the stands, the parking
lot or from the comforts of your own home.
While only a select few individuals are able
to represent our school by playing on the
field, we all represent our school through our
support. By supporting our sports teams, we
are not only building a sense of community
and pride, we are also promoting and adver-
tising our university to the world. Few things
stand out to people, including potential future
students, like school spirit. So let's show the
world that we have something to celebrate.
The pirate football team will be taking on
Rice next Saturday, so stay up late to make
time to wash your purple and gold T-shirts for
Paint it Purple Fridays, line up to buy tickets
to games and go laugh with your friends at a
tailgate party. Perhaps decorate your car with
our school colors or invite a friend to share in
the festivities. Parents Weekend is also next
weekend and no doubt your family would love
to help support and show that ECU pride.
Go ahead, be the silly person in the stands
screaming at the top of your lungs when our
guys take the field. Let's show people why it
pays to be a Pirate.

"Clearing up some confusion"
TONY MCKEE
CONSERVATIVE CORNER
I want to thank our Editor, Ms.
Jennifer Hobbs, for her kind words
about me having to take some time to
recuperate from an injury last week. Of
course, she did forget to mention that
she was the one who caused the injury
because I didn't get an assignment done
fast enough.
Only kidding! Jennifer is a very
sweet, calm individual who loves
everybody and everything. Just to be on
the safe side though, I made sure this
column was on time (sorta) and I will
be avoiding her for a little while.
'Nuff said. Let's get to the good
stuff.
I have come to the realization that
many connoisseurs of this column do
not understand the terms that I use. 1
was led to this inescapable conclusion
after quite a few people have asked
me why I hate democrats so much.
First off, I do not hate democrats. I am
definitely not fond of Democrats, and
Liberalsnah, not even them. Are you
beginning to get the picture, or should
I elaborate?
Alright, I will again put on my
teacher hat so I can impart some modi-
cum of my vast storehouse of wisdom.
This week's lesson is on differences and
definitions.
You probably noticed the capitaliza-
tion discrepancies earlier. Those are not
errors in typing. I did, and do, that to
differentiate the groups. Liberals and
liberals are not the same thing. Just as
Conservativeconservative, Democrat
democrat, and Republicanrepublican
are all different creatures. Let me
roughly define them. After that, the
differences should be clear.
Conservative: believes in strong
family values, including that a family
consists of a man, a woman and how-
ever many children they desire to
conceive. They believe in limiting the
power of government so that citizens
can enjoy their God-given freedom,
not bow in servitude to power hungry
bureaucrats. They know that people
prosper more when given a helping
hand up, not a restricting handout.
Believes the Founding Fathers said
what they meant when they wrote the
Constitution and that it doesn't require
any "interpretation" to be understood.
Believes that God not only has a place
in government but that governance is
impossible without His help. Believes
in the sanctity of life and that abor-
tion is murder and infanticide. Believes
that if a person willfully kills another
human being (excluding abortion) the
government is justified and duty bound
to ensure justice is done by executing
them instead of coddling them for the
rest of their lives in prison (and no,
these are not conflicting values).
conservative: holds many of the
same beliefs as Conservatives, just
unwilling to openlysay so. Usually
called the "silent majority Ultimately
does the right thing at the ballot box.
Republican: people like George
Bush, Ronald Reagan and all the other
politicians who openly espouse Con-
servative values despite the knowledge
that the mainstream media and others
will ostracize, ridicule and attempt to
minimize them as a result.
republican: people who's parents
wereare Conservative and have voted
that way "just because They know
on an instinctual level that what their
parentsgrandparentsetc. believed
and taught them is true, but may not
be able to explain why. This category
also includes democrats who have seen
the error of their Party's ways and who
"stealth vote
Democrat: people like Ted Ken-
nedy, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Bill
and Hillary Clinton. These people have
sold their souls to their Liberal "base"
and no longer can act sane for fear
of losing their support. Have backed
themselves into a corner where they
have to support actions and lifestyles
that they would not let their own
children pursue. Uses terms like "Nazi,
baby killer, Fascist" and other Talking
Points when trying to get their point
(whatever it is) across. These are easy
to spot in that they all say the same
thing on the weekend talk shows and
news programs. You just have to watch
the first one to know what the rest of
them are going to say. Includes certain
members of the mainstream media.
democrat: the flip side of republi-
can. Vote as they do because they don't
know better or have fallen for the pro-
paganda they have been fed. Contains
vast numbers of future republicans.
Liberal: Insane, dangerous, hate-
filled, suffering from a mental disease.
This includes enviro-terrorists who
burn cars and houses in the name of
"saving the planet" (what about the air
pollution that their fires cause?), radical
feminists who claim that even consen-
sual sex andor sex between married
couples is "rape" and environmentalist
nuts who believe that "endangered spe-
cies" are more important than human
beings, despite the fact that species
have been going extinct for eons and
will continue to do so with or without
human help.
This group is especially dangerous
because they are incapable of rational
discussions. Anyone who disagrees
with their radical views is shouted
down, excoriated and in some instances
physically attacked. Bears a remark-
able resemblance to Liberals. Contains
many members of the mainstream
media.
liberal: well intentioned, deluded
individual. Can be either republican or
democrat.
Well, that's about it. From now on
there should be no confusion when you
see these words in my columns. And
remember, no hate involved.
I hope this helps clear some things
up. I have to get this to Jennifer now
before I have to take a month off to
"recover
See you next week.
In My Opinion
Could animal rights activists be racist?
(KRT) � In the weeks since People
for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
launched its Animal Liberation Proj-
ect display, in which pictures of once
exploited groups are juxtaposed with
photos of animals abused today, we
have been called "racist "insensitive"
and "extreme An NAACP representa-
tive accused us of "exploiting" blacks
to make our point that animals suffer
as people do.
While the photos of poor immi-
grants, children used in forced labor,
American Indians and African slaves
are extremely upsetting, why is it so
shocking to suggest that the mindset
that condoned exploitation of people
in the past is the same as the mindset
that enables today's abuse of animals
in laboratories and on factory and fur
farms? And why is it assumed that this
display, and indeed the entire animal
rights movement, was generated by
insensitive white people? As a person of
color, I am pained and perplexed that
my two decades of work in the animal
rights movement, as well as the efforts
of my many colleagues who are people
of color, is discounted.
My family immigrated to Canada
from India when I was three. My teen
years coincided with the height of
"Paki-bashing" in Canada and I spent
most Saturday and Sunday mornings
cleaning egg from our doors and win-
dows or examining, with my very hurt
parents, racist "jokes" that had been
spray painted onto our driveway.
During the mid-1980s, while
enrolled in a graduate program at
he University of Western Ontario in
London, Ontario, I helped organize
protests calling on the university to
divest from South Africa, and other
protests opposing the racist ideas being
trumpeted by the eugenics theorist,
Jean-Philippe Rushton.
During this time, I visited a slaugh-
terhouse outside Toronto and I knew
that the violence I witnessed in the
slaughterhouse stemmed from the
same oppressive mindset that per-
mitted the vandalism at my parents'
house, that allowed Rushton to espouse
hateful ideas justifying racist policies
and that gave whites in South Africa
carte blanche to oppress blacks. It's
the mindset that discounts others'
interests and props up one's relatively
minor interests relative to the Interests
of other beings.
For five years, I was a professor at
Memorial University of Newfoundland
in St. John's, where I again became
involved in animal and environmental
activism. People who opposed these
issues openly declared that these move-
ments were brought in from "the main-
land My friends from Newfoundland
who were involved in these issues were
painted either as invisible or as dupes
of the "mainlanders
I wondered why the naysayers from
Newfoundland would sell short their
own brothers and sisters: Was it so dif-
ficult to conceive that Newfoundland-
ers might feel some compassion for
animals? This myopic view that would
dismiss the efforts of a group because
they're not "like us" is not limited to an
isolated and financially stressed island
in the north Atlantic.
In the United States, the NAACP and
others are now painting animal rights
activists as white racists in order to mar-
ginalize and dismiss us. I can't help but
think that this sort of "analysis" that
insists on painting a movement in a
monochrome is the same paring down
of the world that people engage in when
the truth makes them uncomfortable.
Racists dismissed Martin Luther King
as a womanizer. Colonists dismissed
Gandhi as a short, brown man in a
loincloth. Sexists dismiss feminists as
ugly, angry women.
Yet many people of color work every
day to change attitudes toward animals.
My own beliefs, and those of many of
my colleagues, sprang from an under-
standing of right versus wrong. It is not
racism that inspires us, but justice.
I ask other people of color who have
had their windows egged or experienced
other forms of racism to stop condemn-
ing for a moment and to consider that
what they are now saying about animals
- that animals are lesser beings whose
suffering can be dismissed - was once
said about them and was used as an
excuse to keep them in bondage.

Picks of the Week:
Music:
Fugazi
I don't care which one of their more
than a dozen releases you listen
to. just listen to them. For all of you
who have recently jumped on the
pop-punkemo bandwagon due
to the rise of self-proclaimed punk
bands like Good Charlotte and Fall
Out Boy, try some Fugazi to get a
feel for real DIY (do it yourself) punk.
These men started the so-called emo
movement back in the late 1980s, and
believe me -it's nothing like the overly
produced crud you'll hear on MTV.
77ie Corpse Bride
With Halloween quickly approaching,
what better movie is there to go see
than one with gothic characters and
a skeleton dog? Though it might not
have the deepest plot of the year, it's
fun and lighthearted.
Television:
"Desperate Housewives" Sunday at
9 p.m. ABC
With an abundance of attractive
women and men, and humorous
drama which, in some cases, we're
happy it's happening on Wisteria
Lane and not our own backyard,
"Desperate Housewives" is back
for season two. Who are the new
neighbors? Whose baby is Gabrielle
having? Tune in and find out. If
nothing else, you will have something
to talk about with everyone else on
Monday morning.
77ie Da Vinci Code
I personally have not read the book,
but it's been on the bestsellers list for
129 weeks now, so something about
this book has to be good. Read this
book or one of the many spin off
books and decide for yourself whether
the book was worth all the hype.
Names in the News:
0h Tara
You'd think Tara Reid would be laying
Iqw after photographs surfaced of her
being helped out of a New York club

The New York Post reports that the
29-year-old actress-party girl, whose
life was chronicled in the recently
canceled E! show "Taradise went

railed against her reputation as a

Charging Kate?
While we're on the subject of beauties
gone bad, British supermodel Kate

Fashion Faux Pas Times Two
Italian fashion designer Valentino

Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz, who
have been photographed wearing
less-than-chic gear in their off hours.
In an interview with the German
newspaper Die Zeit, Valentino let
loose on the two for not holding
up what he sees as the glamour
standard of a Hollywood icon. Today
you see Julia Roberts and Cameron

Charllze Gets Her Own Star Power

We, here at TEC, have decided
t6 do our own version of reality

men, for the duration of the
semester you'll be treated to
TEC's Survival of the Fittest in

Next week we'll undergo
our first of three fitness
assessments in which we'll
weigh in and have all of our
measurements taken. We'll
have our blood pressure taken,
and the experts at the SRC will
measure exactly how far we
can run and how many push
ups we're able to do, among
other things.
We'll have personal training
sessions once a week to not only
get us on a steady workout rou-
tine, but also to motivate us to

work out and stay healthy. We'll
also be given gold passes that
grant us access to as many group
fitness classes we want. As if that
isn't enough, we're also going
to have nutrition consultations
because being healthy and in
shape also includes a proper diet.
Now, who are the lucky
participants?
TEC's contestants are Kris-
tin Day, senior communica-
tion major, Ed McKim, junior
art major, and myself. Kristin
and Ed will introduce them-
selves over the next few weeks
in their articles, as we'll all
be contributing pieces docu-
menting our progress, so I'll
start by introducing myself.
As our faithful readers may or
may not know, I'm the Assistant
Features Editor for TEC and a
senior communication major,
additionally I'm commonly
known by many of you for con-
tributing some entertainment
or opinion pieces. I'm eager
to lose weight through this
program not only because I'm
chubby and out of shape, but
also because health problems
run in my family and I'd like
to take every step possible to be
as healthy as I possibly can be.
I was active all through
high school, and I played
on the lacrosse team here
my freshman year, but since
then, with schoolwork piling
up, I've just become lazy. I'm
anxious to begin this program
and I'm hoping that I can
finally get back to looking, and
feeling healthy.
I'm hoping that through
reading our articles each week,
we'll motivate some of you to
start working out as well.
Stay tuned to follow us
through our ups and downs
over the next several weeks. In
next Tuesday's edition, we'll all
publish the rest of our measure-
ments and determine what our
fitness goals are in relation to
those measurements.

With the current imbalance between supply and
demand of fossil fuels in the United States, President
Bush has called on the American people to pitch in
through energy conservation.
1. Curtail non-essential travel. If you were plan-
ning a long drive to the beach, save yourself and the
country some money and go to an in-town park.
2. Carpool or use mass transit. Riding with friends
is more fun anyway, why not ride with friends while
saving gas money?
3. Identify all of the energy "vampires" in your
residence. These are appliances such as television,
washersdryers, computers and even cell phone
chargers that use 4-7 watts of power when they are
not turned on. By identifying and unplugging these
vampires, your utility bills will lower while doing
your part to help the American energy conservation
effort. This effort could save $1-2 billion annually.
4. Only conduct energy wasting activities at night
if at all possible. This includes doing laundry and
electric cooking.
5. Turn off all lights, computers, printers and
appliances when they are not in use. Try to keep
the windows open as much as possible now that
fall is upon us. Efforts like turning off the water
when you are brushing your teeth and running
the dishwasher only when it is totally full are great
ways to save water and electricity.
ECU has the opportunity to help eastern North
Carolina as well as the entire country through our
everyday actions. Go home and walk through the
house to identify any energy wasting that you are
doing. Try turning off your computer when you are
not going to use it or unplugging the TV, washer
and dryer when they are not in use. If you don't do
this for your country and future generations, do it
for your wallet. Everyone can stand to save some
money on utilities.
Going greek: Loose lips sink pledge ships Free ECU
comedy
The importance of
secrecy and ritual
EMILY JORDAN
STAFF WRITER
Initially 1 had intended to
write this story about fraternity
and sorority pledging, but it
turns out that no brothers or
sisters at ECU are willing to
divulge any in depth information
regarding the pledging process
for their particular organizations
- for this we should show them
respect. Even after I told people
that their organization and their
name would not be mentioned,
no one was willing to crack.
Maintaining secrecy helps
to maintain the integrity of the
Greek organizations, which is
why it is a privilege to be a part
of them. However, the ideal upon
which secrecy is based is not to be
misunderstood, fraternities and
sororities have a duty to protect
their houses and to regulate their
history and social code. Secrecy
is not simply an excuse to cover
up any wrong doing that goes
on during the pledging pro-
cess. Based upon years of ritual,
many fraternity secrets like
handshakes, passwords, songs,
journals and initiation rites are
highly symbolic and are kept
closely guarded. Ritual and
secrecy go hand-in-hand. With-
out secrecy the perpetuation of
ritual would not succeed.
Ritual is vital to the preservation
of fraternities and sororities. Though
rituals are changed to keep up with
current times, the basis of many
rituals is dated back to the found-
ing members. Ritual is a system of
Kappa Sigma holds their pledge
values - a product of history and the
spirit of which the organization was
founded upon. Ritual is an instru-
ment for self-evaluation.
Some rituals include hazing.
Hazing is absolutely prohibited
by the governing body at ECU
but, for all anyone knows, it
may or may not go on. The
university defines hazing as, "to
annoy any student by playing
abusive or ridiculous tricks upon
him, to frighten, scold, beat or
harass him, or to subject him to
personal indignity There is no
declared reason why fraternities
and some sororities undergo
hazing during the pledging pro-
cess. A likely theory is that hazing
occurs to facilitate strong com-
mitment and loyalty to the group,
but it is simply a theory.
Why join a fraternity or soror-
ity? A senior business finance
major, Dale Delserone of Tau
meeting to discuss daily activities to discuss policies and procedures.
Kappa Epsilon believes that one
goes Greek "to have friends for
life, something to come back to
after graduation, to be a part of
the community and the univer-
sity, and it the organization can
help you find a job after college
The overall purpose of frater-
nities and sororities is to provide
community service and help
students develop sound learning
and leadership skills. Of course,
there is quite a bit of socializing
among peers that goes on as well.
The common theme among the
Greek organizations is the build-
ing of friendships through shared
experiences and efforts.
What we do know is that
pledging serves as a holding
period in which the group decides
whether or not they have made
the right choice. What one may
not realize is that once a pledge
becomes a member of a particular
fraternity or sorority, he or she is
a member for life. There aren't
many organizations in this world
that allow you to establish lifelong
commitments and friendships
without a dangling membership
renewal each year or so.
Pledge requirements differ
from house to house, however
common requirements include
learning about the history and
structure of the fraternity or
sorority as well as the chapter,
performing a service of some kind
and maintaining a deferential
attitude toward current members.
However, this is all that
anyone could tell me about the
pledging process, as greater details

sealed lips. This is fortunate

Career Center here to help ECU students
Providing all aspects of
career exploration
TOMEKA STEELE
SENIOR WRITER
If you are looking for a
job the Career Center is defi-
nitely where you need to go.
The Career Center has a smor-
gasbord of resources to make
finding a job, getting a job
and keeping a job simple. The
Career Center is a branch of the
academic affairs department
at ECU. The staff at the Career
Center urges students to utilize
their "e3" system to explore,
experience and engage in the
resources provided.
Some of the services offered
are workshops, programs, career
fairs and an online job search
engine, internship and co-op
search engine. There are specific
workshops for learning resume
and portfolio skills as well as
interviewing skills.
To get started, all students
have to do is register with the
Career Center. A registration
form can be filled out online or
at the center itself. Once a stu-
dent is registered, access to the
online database of job listings
is granted.
On the eRecruiting Web site
one can upload a resume to the
system that employers can review.
Students can search for jobs based
on the area and specific interests.
In addition, students can apply
for jobs on the site and sign up
for on-campus interviews as well.
The site includes job listings on
campus and federal work-study
opportunities for eligible students.
There are also many assistantships
specifically for recent graduates.
Distance learning students also
can utilize the sources of the
Career Center.
The Career Center offers a
mentor program where a stu-
dent can work with a member
of the Pirate Alumni Network
who is part of their desired
career field. This is a great tool
t
for students wanting to know
more about their chosen career
field or area of study.
The Career Center has a
database of employers as well
as connections with employers
and students can search for jobs
based on specifications. Each
college or school at ECU has a
career coach assigned to it to
help steer students in the right
direction and help them with
their job search.
"I went to the Career Center
when 1 needed help with my
resume. They helped me to
improve my resume and helped
me to find a job that fits well
Into my schedule. The Career
Center is great and I'd like to
thank them for all their help
said Amber Anthony, junior
interior design major.
The Career Center will host
its Fall Career Fair Thursday,
Oct. 20 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.
at Minges Coliseum. At the fair
there will be many employers
recruiting and scouting for
I
potential employees. Some
of the employees include A4
Healthsystems, Aramark, Blythe
Construction, Davidson County
Schools, Duke University
Hospital and countless other
companies.
The career fairs the Career
Center hosts are the largest
annual university fairs on
the east coast. This would be
a great event for seniors and
graduates to attend because there
will be so much exposure to what
is available in the area as well as
other locations.
During the spring 2006
semester, the Career Center hosts
a number of specific career fairs.
The fairs include a technology
career fair, a science fair, a busi-
ness career fair, an education fair
and a health careers fair. Look
out for updates on the Career
Center Web site to find out which
fair is right for you.

The Swash Improv
SARAH CAMPBELL
STAFF WRITER,
Are you looking for a unique
and entertaining way to spend
your free time without breaking
the bank? If so, look no further.
The Swash Improv is just what
you have been searching for. TSI
offers students a chance to view
comedy through a different per-
spective, improvisation.
Improvisation is the act of
creating a performance without
any type of planning. Improv
is the art of acting on the fly.
Nothing is scripted - everything
is made up on the spot.
"This is as live as live can get.
True, we do have some struc-
tured games that have a certain
format to be followed, but they
are simply a metaphorical road
map of the show - we use them,
but they're not what get up to the
end result said senior theatrical
design and production major TJ
Walker who is also captain of TSI.
TSI is a student organization
that was formed in August 2002 by
former ECU student, Corey Brown
as a way to bring improvisational
theatre to Greenville and surround-
ing areas. Since then, TSI has grown
into a successful team which has
traveled around North Carolina
delivering laughs to many.
There are currently IS people
involved with this professional,
non-profit, comedy improv
ensemble. Their shows are simi-
lar to ABC's "Whose Line Is It
Anyway with the only major
difference being that TSI per-
forms live.
Their performances mainly
consist of short form improv.
This type of improv is mainly
comprised of games which can
be played in a couple of minutes.
These games are combined to
form a show. They keep the audi-
ence from becoming bored by
constantly changing.
I recently attended one of
their shows at the Pirate Under-
ground in Mendenhall and found
It to be quite hilarious. I was
laughing out loud the entire time,
it made me completely forget
all of my worries for just a few
moments and really enjoy my
free time.
TSI invites everyone to come
out and join in the fun. Their
next on-campus performance
will be during the Halloween
extravaganza at Mendenhall Oct.
31. They will also be at Mudsling-
ers, which is on Evans Street
across the street from Emerge
Art Gallery Nov. 10 and Dec. 1
at 8 p.m.

You're busy all the time,
always running around han-
dling business, working a job and
taking classes. There's no way in
the world you could ever have
time to sit in front of a stove and
cook a fresh, healthy meal every
day of the week. Yet you still
want to be healthy and eat nutri-
tious food off the fast food menu
boards. Is this impossible?
No way. It's entirely pos-
sible to eat fast food and still be
healthy. Although it may not be
the best option for your finances,
the possibility does exist that you
may eat fast food all the time
and still stay healthy. You can
discover some options at
many chain restaurants in
Greenville that won't
give you heart problems.
Let's start with the golden
arches of McDonald's. Since
the movie Super Size Me came
out, Ronald McDonald's cooks
have dealt with a heavy share of
criticism about how their culi-
nary offerings fatten people by
the day. Well, according to the
McDonald's Web site, there are
a variety of food options that
won't kill you.
For one, you could choose
a meal of their new fruit and
walnut salad and an eight-ounce
jug of their one percent low fat
milk. The meal contains just 16
grams of total fat, three and a
half grams of saturated fat, 10

an extra $5 on your
2nd and 4th donation
milligrams of cholesterol and
210 milligrams of sodium. The
meal in total contains just 410
calories.
However, while many of the
McDonald's food options are
available with low fat contents,
the ever-present problem is the
high level of sodium. A meal
of a California cobb salad with
grilled chicken and Italian dress-
ing and a jug of milk has almost
2,000 milligrams of sodium,
compromising 80 percent of your
daily value of sodium.
Many of the great options for
good health at McDonald's do
not show up on the value meals.
So if you want to eat healthy at
the golden arches, stay away from
the numbers.
If you choose to stop by
Andy's Cheesesteaks and Cheese-
burgers they also have some food
options around for those with
what their Web site calls "lighter
appetites The most important
alteration people can make is
to switch from steak to chicken
for the Chick-o-Philly. This is
a healthier option, but if you
aren't big on the cheesesteaks
(and shame on you if you aren't)
they have a number of grilled
chicken options, like a grilled
chicken sandwich or a grilled
chicken salad. Their salad comes
with lettuce, carrots, onions,
green peppers, tomato, bacon
and shredded cheddar cheese,
according to the Andy's Web
site.
If you enjoy some of the
awesome chicken at Chick-Fil-A
you should consider some of
the healthy options they offer.
Many fast food restaurants now offer a wide-variety of salad options.
If you need a meal under S00
calories, you can have a Chick-
Fil-A chicken sandwich without
butter, a side salad with fat free
honey-mustard dressing and
a diet coke. They also have a
meal with a char-grilled chicken
sandwich, a carrot and raisin
salad and a bottle of Dasani water
that equals just 440 calories.
While many of the options at
Chick-Fil-A that are more
popular come fried, their char-
grilled chicken options are just
as tasty and of course, healthier
to boot.
One of the other popular fast
food destinations in Greenville is
Wendy's, the home of the square
burger and the 99-cent value
menu. Wendy's has also taken a
number of big steps to improve
the fat and calorie content of
their food.
Wendy's has always had a
great number of food options
(they're one of the only chain
restaurants known to serve man-
darin oranges) and they are
healthier options than some of
their counterparts. They recently
started offering a choice of a
baked potato or side salad with
burgers instead of fries. A meal
like a large bowl of chili with a
side salad and fat-free dressing,
served with a diet drink, contains
less than 510 calories and less
than 10 grams of fat, according
to the Wendy's Web site.
So the consensus of these fast
food restaurants is the healthier
food options don't lie on the big
boards with pictures. Many of
the popularized options are the
kinds of options dieticians warn
you about. But many of these
chains do have some healthy
options in the back, and if you
stick to them, you can be healthy,
even from the take-out bag.

ECU finish in sixth at Fall
Invitational
LEXINGTON, Ky. - ECU freshman
golfer Lene Krog (Leir, Norway)
finished tied for fourth at the Wildcat
Fall Invitational Sunday after posting
a four-over par 220. The tournament
was being held at the par-72,6.003-
yard University Golf Club.
Krog and Jessica Hauser paced
the Pirates (20-8-1) to their second
consecutive top-six finish with a
54-hole team score of 902. Hauser
(Germantown, N.C.) finished in 22nd
place with an 11-over par 227 (79-
74-74) For Krog, who was named
Conference USA Women's Golfer of
the Week Sept. 21, it was her second
consecutive top-five finish of the
season.
Florida captured the event
with an 881 (296-288-297) and the
Gators were led by freshman Mallory
Blackwelder, a Versailles, Ky native,
who won the individual title with a
four-under-par 212 (68-71-73). North
Carolina concluded tournament play
in second place with an 891 (302-
288-301).
Sophomore Emelie Llnd
(Kungsangen, Sweden) carded a
tournament score of 229 (74-78-77)
to finish tied for 26th.
The Pirates will be back in action
on Oct. 21 when they host the Taco
Bell Intercollegiate at the Bradford
Creek Golf Club in Greenville, N.C.

ERIC GILMORE
SENIOR WRITER
Late in the fourth quarter,
ECU's Chris Johnson was scrap-
ing for extra yardage when the
ball squirted onto the turf. John-
son's second fumble was indica-
tive of the Pirates' Saturday night
woes.
"Turnovers were the word
of the day said first year Head
Coach Skip Holtz.
"1 don't care if you're the
Green Bay Packers playing a high
school team. You're not going to
win with five turnovers
ECU's turnovers led to a
surprisingly easy 33-7 Southern
Mississippi victory. USM (2-1,
l-O) recovered all four ECU (1-3,
0-1) fumbles, two inside their
own 25. Senior Dustin Almond
finished with 324 yards on 23-
of-34 attempts.
Almond delivered a 33-yard
strike to tight end Shawn Nelson
with eight seconds left in the first
half to extend a 20-7 lead.
"We had an opportunity to
break on the ball Holtz said.
"Coach Hudson (defensive
coordinator) made a great call.
We had a guy there, but we've
got to have a guy step up and
make a play
But Almond's pass almost
didn't happen. During the eight-
play, 88-yard drive, Almond's
throw was intercepted on an
acrobatic play by Erode Jean. A
roughing the passer penalty on
Marcus Hands helped USM retain
possession.
"I didn't see it Holtz said.
"My eyes were focused down
the field. But, it turned out to be
a game-changing play
Almond rifled another game-
changing dart on the first posses-
sion of the second-half when he
found Antwon Courington on
3-and-6. Courington fought out
Erode Jean on his way to a 74-
yard touchdown reception. The
bookend touchdowns extended
USM's lead to 27-7.
Early on, the teams traded
turnovers. James Pinkney's inde-
cision on an option pitch caused
a fumble on the ECU 36. After a
defensive stand, USM's Darren
McCaleb knocked through a 45-
yard field goal.
ECU was poised to score on
the ensuing possession when
Chris Johnson's fumble was
recovered by Jasper Faulk at
the USM 15. The Golden Eagles
marched 78 yards to the ECU
15 when they faced a 4-and-l
play. Similar to Pinkney's earlier
fumble, Almond botched the

including four separate fumbles, two of them coming in the red zone. Chris Johnson scored the Pirates' only touchdown.
pitch leading to Dontre Brown's
first career fumble recovery.
ECU's turnover bug reared
its head again on the third
consecutive fumble. USM line-
backer Trevis Coley jarred the
pigskin loose with his helmet
from Brandon Fractious at the
USM 23.
USM's win marked the
ninth time in the last 10 games
they've beaten the Pirates. The
Pirates moved to 2-13 inside
Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium against
their conference rivals. USM
was the preseason pick to win
the Eastern Division of Confer-
ence USA.
"(Coach Bower does a great
job with that team I loltz said.
"This is a team that week in

out is competing for this confer-

James Pinkney finished
20-of-28 for 202 yards and an
interception. Pinkney's favorite
target never really got into a
rhythm. Aundrae Allison fin-
ished with only four catches for
20 yards.
Allison tweaked his ham-
string stretching before the game.
The junior receiver dropped to
third nationally in receptions
per game (8) and fifth in receiv-
ing yards (116). Allison's limited
mobility allowed for Robert Till-
man to step up.
Tillman was switched to
another receiver position oppo-
site of Allison. The move let Till-
man lead ECU with 57 receiving
yards. Chris Johnson led ECU in
catches with five for 41 yards.
Johnson ran 1-yard in the second
quarter for the only Pirate touch-
down.

Gamecocks too much for Pirates
South Carolina celebrates after one of their five goals against the Pirates Sunday.
South Carolina nets two
goals in final 16 minutes
BY RON CLEMENTS
SPORTS WRITER
Ayo Akinsete scored two
goals and Josh Alcala had a goal
and three assists as the South
Carolina men's soccer team beat
ECU Sunday afternoon in the
Conference USA opener for both
teams, 5-2.
Akinsete got the Gamecocks
(4-5,1-0) on the board first when
he sprinted past ECU defender
David Rowe and knocked the ball
by Pirate goalkeeper Chris Hicks
six minutes Into the match.
Following the goal, South
Carolina kept the pressure on the
Pirates, keeping the ball in the
ECU zone for much of the next
10 minutes. The ECU defense
stiffened behind solid play from
Danny Lundquist and, 30 min-
utes Into the match, the Pirates
(0-7-1, 0-1) tied the match on a
penalty kick from Alex Morrow.
Morrow beat Gamecock keeper
Mike Gustavson to the left corner
of the net. The goal came minutes
after Shinn Tagaki just missed
from the left side.
South Carolina upped the
pressure for the rest of the half,
but Hicks' aggressive play from
the keeper's box kept the Cocks
out of the net to keep the game
tied at 1-1 at halftime.
"I thought we played well in
the first half said ECU Head
Coach Chad Halverson.
"We played a good 45 min-
utes of soccer
Both teams came out aggres-
sive in the second half, but it was
South Carolina that broke the tie
when Alcala headed in a perfect
throw-in from Mike Sambursky
14 minutes into the second half.
Eight minutes later, Alcala fed
Akinsete for his second break-
away goal.
"Ayo was outstanding today
said South Carolina coach Mark
Berson,
"But, I know it's a cliche
- it was a solid team effort. It
was our back and midfield that
came through. I thought Alcala
and Akinsete both had outstand-
ing games
The Pirates responded quickly
to claw their way back into
the game when Matt Kowaleski
sniped a shot from the right side,
crossing in front of Gustavson
and finding the left corner of
the net.
The Pirates were unable to
regain the momentum as the
speed and size of the Gamecocks
began to take its toll on the Pirates.
"They are a physical strong
team Halverson said.
"They probably wore us down
a bit, but that's just C-USA soccer

The Lady Pirates went 1-1 in their first C-USA games
Women's soccer
split weekend
matches in Houston
Rice victorious 3-0; Lady
Pirates blank Cougars 1-0
JOSH FERNANDEZ
S TAFF WRITER
Winning big conference
games is probably the best way
for a team to gain late-season
momentum. For the Lady Pirates,
momentum is exactly what
they need entering the final
stretch in the 2005 season. Now
sitting at 5-7-0, the women's
soccer team, despite a current
losing record, starts Confer-
ence USA play at 1-1-0 after
visiting Rice and Houston this
past weekend.
ECU'S three-day road trip
began at Rice (5-4-0) on Sept.
30. The Owls, playing their
first ever Conference USA
game since joining the confer-
ence this year, came in to the
match on 12 days rest due to
cancellations in anticipation for
Hurricane Rita.
The first half was all Rice as
the Lady Pirates were out-shot
6-1. In the 12th minute, Rice
forward Clory Martin put the
ball past ECU goalkeeper Amber
Campbell to put the Owls on
top 1-0.
ECU head coach Rob Don-
nenwirth has mentioned several
times in weeks past the signifi-
cance of his team putting pres-
sure on the opposing players.
After almost no offensive pres-
ence in the first half, the second
half saw the Lady Pirates turn up
the pressure as they took seven
shots on goal, along with two
corner kicks.

This pressure forced Rice into
committing seven fouls in the
second half, as opposed to their
three infractions in the first.
No goals could be manufac-
tured from the late game efforts
of the Lady Pirates. That ended
up not even mattering since
the Owls managed to score two
more late goals in the 76th and
83rd minutes.
However, the shutout loss
didn't crush ECU's morale. It
especially didn't bother Amber
Campbell either, because she
made an excellent rebound per-
formance against the Houston
Cougars, tallying seven saves
and notching her second career
shutout Sunday.
The match was a stalemate
in the first half, as well as for
most of the second. Houston
took 17 total shots on goal, but
most were off target or halted by
the steady hands of Campbell.
The Lady Pirates made a few
runs throughout the game but
were mostly held at bay by the
Cougar defense.
And it should be noted that
ECU was quite stingy on defense
themselves as they let only
two Houston starters get a shot
on goal.
"I was pleased with the defen-
sive play we had said Donnen-
wirth in an interview with ECU
Sports Information.
"Madison Keller and
Nicole Moore really did a great
job of stopping Houston's
threats today
Just as the game was
coming to the close, the Lady
Pirates made a quick coun-
ter attack. Forward Meghan
McCallion dropped a through-
pass past Cougar defenders to
midfielder Ashley Stopa who
headed the ball past Houston
keeper Stephanie Pucek for the
game winner. The goal was Sto-
pa's first since the season opener

3-1) marked the fourth time this
season an ECU game was decided

also accompanied by the plea
sure of defeating a top C-USA
team early in conference play.
"I thought we played
extremely well today said Don-
nenwirth.
"After Friday's loss, this team
really showed me what they were

This is South Carolina's first
season in C-USA and Berson
was satisfied to leave Greenville,
with a win.
"I'm very pleased to pick up
a win against an ECU team that
is going to give a lot of teams fits
this year Berson said.
"C-USA is one of the top
conferences in the country and
this is a tough place to play
The Gamecocks used excel-
lent ball movement with a series
of passes between Alcala and
Sambursky to set up Ralph Pace's
goal with just over 16 minutes
remaining to put the game out
of reach. Ryan Deter capped the
scoring with 3:59 left on the
clock with an assist from Alcala.
"Our guys battle hard, but
we give up elementary goals at
costly times Halverson said.
"Somehow we've got to find
a way to put it together for
the entire game. We're a good
enough team. I think we showed
that, most certainly in the first
half, that we're capable. We create
chances. We just have to elimi-
nate the other team's chances
The Pirates next take the
field Friday night when they
travel to Birmingham to take on'
UAB. South Carolina will play at
Memphis Friday.
