Cohen stays
confident in
mayor race
Student running for
public office in Greenville
An ECU student is waging a
serious campaign for mayor of
Greenville and is doing it out of a
necessity for ECU representation
in local government.
Matthew Cohen, senior politi-
cal science major and candidate for
mayor, is campaigning to become
Greenville's mayor at the age of
21. He will be running against
incumbent Mayor Don Parrott.
"I decided two years ago that
it's important that a student from
ECU become mayor said Cohen.
"If I lose, I want somebody else
to run two years from now
Cohen is completely focused
on blending the ECU community
with the rest of Greenville.
"It's about dragging these
two separate groups, kicking and
screaming, together into one room
until they play nice Cohen said.
He is also stern about main-
taining his student image once he
gets into office. He is campaign-
ing this semester while carrying
an 18 semester hour course load.
"I'm staying a student
Cohen said.
"I plan on continuing my
education while I'm mayor. I'm
running as a student - I plan on
governing as a student
He said ECU getting a student
for mayor would do immeasur-
able good for the university.
Cohen is backing off from the
"anti-establishment" approach
to winning office and focusing
more on what he can do differ-
ently to help the city. He has also
made working relationships with
some of the current city officials.
Cohen said he has had helpful
conversations with Mayor-Pro
Tern Ric Miller as well as District
Five Councilmember Chip Little.
"We had a very productive
discussion Cohen said.
"Ilearnedalot from those guys
He is also grateful for how
receptive people have been
toward his campaign.
"I have yet to really meet any-
body who I give my pitch to who
said they're not going to vote for
me Cohen said.
One of Cohen's new concerns
for the state of the city is the
damage being done to the local
environment. Since the state
government has issued a man-
date for cities to use more river
water, attention will have to shift
toward making it cleaner. Cohen
does not think river cleanliness
is satisfactory right now.
"I think we really need to make
an effort in preserving that resource
and I don't see enough being done
to do that now. It's cheaper to
'green up' than to 'clean up
Cohen also wants to work
on building the development of
Greenville and making sure it is
development that lasts.
"We need to look at how the
city is doing that Cohen said.
"It needs to be sustainable
growth. We need to develop in
a way that we don't completely
destroy the town or that we don't
cut down every tree, that we don't
clog every road and put a parking lot
everywhere that's going to flood
Cohen is very appreciative of
the help he has gotten through-
out his bid for mayor. He has
gotten support from his former
colleagues in SGA. SGA Vice Pres-
ident Heather Dickson has even
campaigned with him. Most of
all, Cohen enjoys the motivation
from his mother, who he said
kept him grounded and never let
his head get inflated.
Cohen has waited a while to
do fundraising and looks to do
most of that in the weeks ahead.
"I've been kind of waiting pur-
music at the Fair grounds.
ECU's Pi Kappa Phi fraternity hosted their
ninth annual "Reggae on the Lake" music
festival this past Saturday at the Pitt County
fair rounds. The event opened at noon and

Saturday's music kicked off with 5th
Generation, followed by Donovan & The

formed at Pi Kappa Phi's previous "Reggae"
festivals and continue to return each year
because they regard it as one of the largest
reggae music festivals on the east coast.
This year's event was expanded through
sponsorships from businesses such as Aqua,
Ripple City Artworks and Guarantees Screen
Printing, food and beverage sales, and
other vendors. A free bus service to and
from the event from eight locations around
Greenville helped promote responsible par-
tying as well as carpooling, although plenty
of parking was available.
Pi Kappa Phi fraternity members staffed
the event and coordinated with Pitt County
sheriffs to maintain security.
"They did a great job, we could not have
done it without them said Sharpe.
Surprisingly, the only real problem faced
during toe event was a shortage of rest room
facilities. With only 30 stalls, lines for the
bathroom were long and slightly chaotic.

City councilmember speaks at Senate meeting
Resolution passed to
give students legal help
Mayor Pro Tern and District
Three Councilmember Ric Miller
spoke to the SGA Senate before
senators discussed the forma-
tion of a new committee as well
recommendations regarding legal
advice for students.
Miller spoke to senators
hoping to encourage their partici-
pation in the local election pro-
cess next month. He said students
who are registered should make
every effort to vote. However,
some students have a problem
voting because of where they are
"I always think students are at
a disadvantage when they come
from out-of-state said Miller.
Miller is seeking re-election
to his district that stretches from
the river all the way to Fifth Street
- it is a district heavily populated
by ECU students.
One of the main orders of
business was the Senate approval
of resolution SR 3-1, a resolution
to provide pre-paid legal service
to students. Rules and Judiciary
Chair Terry Gore proposed the
resolution calling for aid to stu-
dents who think they have no
legal recourse when they go to
court. He said many people plead
guilty to crimes without consult-
ing an attorney of law.
"When I ask people why they
did not seek legal representation,
I always get two answers: one is
the cost, the second thing I hear
is 'I don't know how to go about
doing things said Gore.
There are a lot of conse-
quences for students who plead
guilty to chafges.
"A lot of students are on finan-
cial aid and if you're convicted of
a felonious charge, that can be
taken away from you Gore said.
Serious charges can also
hinder a graduate's chance at
getting government jobs. Gore
said something has to be done
for students who do not know to
what they are entitled.
"This is one of those things
people in the legal profession
know about but a lot of average
college students don't Gore said.
Once the resolution passes,
ECU administrative officials will
receive recommendation from
the Senate on giving free legal
counseling to students.
"We can provide a pre-paid
legal service to all students
Gore said.
Gore also proposed a res-
olution regarding the imple-
mentation of domestic violence
curriculum into the ECU cur-
riculum. Following the speech
Peter Romary, attorney at law,
gave to the SGA Senate meeting
a couple weeks ago - Gore said it
was time to do something about
an epidemic that resulted into
82 deaths in North Carolina last
year. Among the deaths, one
occurred at UNC Chapel Hill
and another happened at UNC
Wilmington. This change would
include money for courses on
domestic violence prevention.
Gore said this would be up to
administration and would not
impact student fees.
The last resolution passed
involved the establishment
of a Parking and Transporta-
tion committee. The com-
mittee has existed in SGA for
two years but only as a spe-
cial committee. The purpose
behind the resolution was to
make this a permanent com-
mittee in the SGA Senate. As
of present time, the Senate
has four committees: Appro-
priations, Rules and Judiciary,
Student Welfare and Screen-
ing and Appointments. The
Senate passed all resolutions
Senators were reminded of the
importance of attending meet-
ings. Senators are allowed three
unexcused absences before they
are kicked out for a year. Senators
are also expected to serve on com-
mittees. Committee meetings are
considered equally as important
as the weekly Senate meetings.
The SGA Senate meets
every Monday at 5 p.m. in the
Mendenhall social room.

Speakers address
academic freedom
A group of approximately 20
scholars gathered inside a lecture
room in the Speight building to
discuss politics and the future of
academic freedom.
The South Atlantic
Philosophy of Education Society
held its 50th annual conference
Sept. 14 - IS with IS speakers who
presented their papers dealing
with academic freedom.
According to James McK-
ernan, president of SAPES and
professor of curriculum and
instruction, certain events
have warranted the need for
a discussion about academic
"One of the members felt, I
think, that there was a climate
of maybe attack, even on stu-
dents, with the Patriot Act and
those kinds of events, but also
faculty issues like the Ward
Churchill case and others said
"We look for a discussion
that's thematic and maybe popu-
lar from year to year
David Ward, professor of
philosophy at Widener Uni-
versity in Delaware, said
campus speech codes and other
threats to academic freedom tend
to garner attention every now
and then.
"Challenges come back every
once in a while said Ward.
Keynote speaker Henry Fer-
rell, professor of history, said
academic freedom is being chal-
lenged by those who are ignorant
on the subject.
"Those people whoattackitreally
don't understand it said Ferrell.
"Nobody can say anything
good about a Palestinian, and
on the other side, nobody can
say anything good about (Israeli
Prime Minister Sharon
While some of the
speakers focused on obstacles
of academic freedom, William
Vinson, English teacher at Alex-
ander Central High School in
Taylorsville NC, said the lack of
creative thinking in the class-
room is also threatening aca-
demic freedom.
He said programs such as
standardized testing and No
Child Left Behind will result in
students having passive minds.
"We need to teach people to
disagree, to make up their own
mind said Vinson.
According to McKernan, the
papers were selected by com-
mittee and will be published
in the SAPES yearbook with a
copy going to the Library of
Congress. He said the papers
were written by a diverse field of
"Tradition has thought
of philosophers as a kind of
an old male preserver or
whatever, but we have folks
from various ethnicities and
genders and institutions McK-
ernan said.
"I think it's a really great
model for a professional society
According to McKernan,
ECU and SAPES have a long
history together dating back to
1949. ECU hosted the SAPES
conference 10 years ago and the

Headley to speak to
John Headley, ECU Which-
ard Professor, will be lecturing at
8 p.m. Oct. 25 in OC-307 Science
and Technology Building.
He will speak on western civi-
lization and its place in the global
community, as well as its origins.
The event does not
require an invitation. Headley
holds an esteemed position at
ECU, the 2005 Whichard Lecture
in the Humanities professor of
history. He attained this special
appointment due to his expertise
in history.
The ECU Whichard Profes-
sorship Itself was established
in honor of David Whichard,
who published and edited
The Daily Reflector until his
passing in 1993, and in honor
of his late wife, Virginia,
an ECU alumna and former
teacher. Headley, who taught
history at UNC Chapel Hill
for almost 40 years, retired in
2003. Headley also edited a
book commemorating ECU's
former professor Bodo Nischan,
which helped to identify him with
thiscampusand brought him here.
He is a published author
and is currently completing his
newest study, titled, "On the
Europeanization of the World
wliich focuses on the time period
between 1500-1800c.e. His lecture
comes partly from this material.
"The West in Its Search for
a Universal Community" will
focus on two themes that distin-
guish the west from other civili-
zations. They include a "common
humanity" and the "capacity
for self-criticism" in our society.
Both ideas are deeply rooted in
our heritage.
The lecture will inevi-
tably raise some hot subjects
concerning where western civi-
lization comes from and how
it is taught and looked at today
based on different factors and
"1 would want students
to take away a recognition
of the uniqueness of a current, a
principle, an idea in our past that
has a much longer background
extending 500 years beyond John
Locke said Headley.

become aware of the exceptional
unique nature of our civilization

News Briefs
Former NC State Instructor says
exterminate white people'
RALEIGH, NC (AP) - North Carolina
State University has distanced
itself from comments made by an
occasional instructor who recently
said blacks must "exterminate white
people off the face of the planet
Kamau Kambon, an author who
taught in NC State's Africana Studies
program as recently as this past
spring, made the comments Oct.
14 during a conference at Howard
University in Washington, DC, that
was televised nationally by C-SPAN.
The conference was organized to
discuss mainstream media coverage
of racial issues after Hurricane
Kambon explained how he grew up
in Brooklyn and eventually began to
wonder why so many of his black
friends were dying. He concluded
that the reason was systematic
oppression by a society designed
and run by whites.
"We have to exterminate white people
off the face of the planet to solve this
problem he said. "So we just have
to just set up our own system and
stop playing and get very serious
and not be diverted from coming up
with a solution to the problem, and
the problem on the planet is white
Lawrence Guyot, a civil rights leader
and speaker at the conference,
immediately challenged the remarks,
warning that blacks can't work toward
full freedom with "racial fanaticism
Opio Sokoni, a filmmaker and
broadcaster who helped organize
the event, also has distanced himself
from Kambon's remarks.
Kambon, who owns a store in Raleigh
called Blacknificent Books, said he
was aware of the controversy but
wouldn't comment on it.
Citing personnel laws, NC State
officials refused to discuss why
Kambon was hired. But they have
denounced the remarks.
"This type of speech is counter
to any reasoned discussion on
the issue of race relations and is
absolutely unacceptable in the
NC State community said NC
State Provost Larry Nielsen, who
oversees academic programs at the
He said Kambon taught at the school
occasionally between the spring of
2001 and the spring of 2005.
NC State spokesman Keith Nichols
on Sunday said Kambon taught at the
school on an "as needed" basis and
wasn't slated to return even before his
comments on Oct. 14. Nichols said
he didn't know why Kambon wasn't
rehired this school year and couldn't
discuss whether he'd ever be hired
again by the university.
Travel, real-estate giant Cendant
to split Into four companies
NEW YORK (AP) - Cendant Corp
owner of the Orbitz travel Web
site and several hotel and real-
estate brands, will split itself into
four separate public companies, the
conglomerate said Monday.
The split, which was approved over
the weekend by the company's
board of directors, will occur next
summer when Cendant spins off 100
percent of the equity of the three new
companies to its shareholders.
One of the new companies will
take over Cendant's hospitality
businesses, including the Ramada
and Howard Johnson brands. Each
of the other three will also focus on a
single area: real estate, travel booking
or car rentals.
The company's leadership is hoping
the change will bring value to its
"We and our advisers believe the sum
of the parts has a value in excess of

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
Henry R. Silverman said in a news
release. The company's shares
closed Friday at $20.09, and have
traded in a 52-week range between
$19.04 and $23.58
Of the four companies to be created
from Cendant's holdings, the one
focusing on real-estate services will
take with it the largest share of the
conglomerate's revenue about 40
That company, which will include
the Century 21 and Coldwell Banker
brands, will be headed by Richard A.
Smith, who already leads Cendant's
real-estate services division, as CEO.
Silverman will serve as non-executive
Stephen P. Holmes will become
chairman and CEO of Cendant's
hospitality services division.
Silverman will become chairman
and CEO of the new travel company,
which will include Orbitz and other
Cendant's president and chief
financial officer, Ronald L. Nelson,
will become chairman and CEO of
the vehicle-rental business, which will
include the Avis and Budget Rent A
Car brands.
New York-based Cendant was
expected to report its third-quarter
results later Monday.
The conglomerate has been working
for more than a year to shed holdings
that did not fit easily into real estate
and travel-related categories divesting
itself of its tax preparation, mortgage
and fleet management businesses,
among others.
Nigeria Investigators search for
cause of plane crash that killed 117
LISSA, Nigeria (AP) - Investigators
searched the still-smoldering
wreckage of a jetliner that slammed
into the Nigerian bush, seeking
flight-data recorders and other clues
Monday to the cause of the crash that
killed all 117 people aboard.
After much confusion about whether
anyone had survived in the immediate
aftermath of the Saturday evening
crash, Nigerian officials confirmed
Monday that all passengers and crew
were dead.
"We can say ail the people on board
the aircraft perished Information
Minister Frank Nweke Jr. told state
Rdelis Onyenyiri, chief of the National
Civil Aviation Authority, said the crash
appeared to be an accident.
The weather was not too bad, but
there was lightning, and an airplane
struck by lightning could lose total
control Onyenyiri told reporters on
Sunday. "So there is a likelihood of a
natural cause
The impact appeared to cause the
plane's virtual disintegration. Small
bits of fuselage, human flesh and
clothing were strewn in nearby trees.
A hand and leg lay on the ground. No
identifiable bodies could be seen but
the smell of death hung in the air.
Acrid smoke still curled from the eight-
yard-deep pit as investigators picked
through wreckage, looking for flight-
data recorders the so-called black
boxes, which are actually often blaze
orange for easier identification.
"We are here to secure the site to
enable the investigators to do their
work. They're trying to find the black
boxes so we can determine the cause
of the crash said one member of
Nigeria's security forces at the scene
He asked not to be identified because
he wasn't authorized to speak to
Military helicopters first spotted the
smoldering wreckage of the Nigerian-
run Bellview jet on Sunday morning,
and search teams that visited the site
afterward found no survivors, said
The plane lost contact with the
Lagos control tower five minutes after
taking off from Murtala Muhammed
International Airport in Lagos at 8:45
p.m. on Saturday, said Jide Ibinola,
a spokesman for the Federal Airport
Authority of Nigeria. State radio said
pilots issued a distress call before the
plane disappeared from radar.
The plane was headed to the capital,
Abuja, on what was supposed to
have been a 50-minute flight, a
route popular among Nigerians and
The nationalities of those aboard
were not immediately known, but
most were believed to be Nigerians.
State Department spokesman Edgar
Vasquez said one American aboard
the flight had been killed, but he did
not identify the person.
Airline officials said 117 people were
on board - 111 passengers and six
crew members.
Nigeria announced a three-day,
nationwide mourning period for
victims of the Bellview Airlines Boeing
737-200, which plowed a deep crater
into the ground near Lissa shortly
after take off from Lagos airport, 30
miles to the south.
Bellview, one of about a dozen local
airlines plying Nigeria's skies, is a
privately owned Nigerian company
that operates a fleet of mostly
Boeing 737s on internal routes and
throughout West Africa, as well as
London. Bellview first began flying
about 10 years ago, and this was the
company's first crash.

Monday as a strong Category

Florida with 125 mph winds and
pounding waves as it began a
dash across the peninsula.
The storm flooded low-lying
areas and knocked out power to

Other issues Cohen is con-

city's transit system. He does not
believe the traffic situation In
Greenville is dire but still thinks
it could use improvement. He sug-
gests continuing to build roads to
alleviate traffic congestion in
areas as Miami and Fort Lauderdale.
Wilma, Florida's eighth
hurricane in IS months, made
landfall at 6:30 a.m. EDT near
Cape Romano, 22 miles south
of Naples, bringing with it a
potential 18-foot storm surge,
the National Hurricane Center
said. Up to 10 inches of rain and
tornadoes were forecast for parts
of central and southern Florida.
Hurricane-force winds of at
least 74 mph extended 90 miles
from the center and tropical
storm-force winds reached 230
miles, the hurricane center said.
The storm strengthened In the
hours before making landfall.

More than 33,000 people
were in shelters across the state.
But in the low-lying Florida Keys,
not even 10 percent of the Keys'
78,000 residents evacuated, Sher-
iff Richard Roth said. Key West
was getting sustained winds of 60
mph, with gusts of 76 mph.
Key West Police Chief Bill
Mauldin said the city had severe
flooding just before dawn, "
more extensive than we've seen
in the past But he wouldn't
know until daybreak the full
extent of any damage.
At 7 a.m Wilma was about
10 miles north of Everglades City
and moving northeast at about
23 mph.

good. I expected a lot of water,
there's not even a lot of water in
the street said Sammy Hamil-
ton, the mayor of Everglades City,
an isolated village of about 700
people near where the strongest
winds could hit. As he spoke, he
was in the "dead slick calm" of

Flooding was reported a few
islands to the north on the snow-

Wilma was expected to skirt the
southern end of Lake Okeechobee
and head into the Atlantic off
Palm Beach County as a Category
2 storm. By early Wednesday, it
was expected to be off the coast
of Canada, but forecasters said
it may not bring heavy rain
because its projected track was
far off shore.
David Paulison, acting direc-
tor of the Federal Emergency
Management Agency, said FEMA
personnel were in shelters wait-
ing for the hurricane winds to die
down before they could assess the
damage and begin relief efforts.
He said he was "very concerned"
that so many people in the Keys
did not evacuate.
While FEMA was bitterly
criticized for its sluggish response
to Hurricane Katrina, this time
the agency had people working
side by side with state emergency
officials, Paulison said.

Israel kills West Bank fugitive in
battle, Jihadist group issues
revenge threat after shootout
JERUSALEM (AP) � Israeli
troops killed a top Palestinian
fugitive and a close accom-
plice in a West Bank shootout
Monday, prompting threats of
"unprecedented" revenge by the
violent Islamic Jihad group.
The wanted man, Luay
Saadi, was the leader of Islamic
Jihad's military wing in the West
Bank and was blamed for the
deaths of 12 Israelis in a series
of attacks in recent months.
Saadi, 30, was killed in a hail of
bullets as he fired on troops
during an attempted escape from
a hide-out, an Israeli army com-
mander said.
Also Monday, an interna-
tional envoy accused Israel of
stalling in talks with the Pales-
tinians on opening a key Gaza
border crossing and other issues
left unresolved after Israel's with-
drawal from the coastal territory.
Envoy James Wolfensohn has
pushed for a quick deal, saying
it's crucial for the economic
recovery of impoverished Gaza.
"The government of Israel,
with its important security
concerns, is loath to relin-
quish control, almost acting
as though there has been no
withdrawal, delaying making
difficult decisions and preferring
to take difficult matters back into
slow-moving subcommittees
Wolfensohn wrote in a letter
to U.N. Secretary General Kofi
Annan, obtained by The Associ-
ated Press.
The West Bank firefight
erupted in the Tulkarem refugee
camp before dawn.
Israeli commandos sur-
rounded an apartment building
after learning that Saadi and his
top lieutenant, Majed al Askar,
were hiding there, said Col.
Aharon Haliva, the top Israeli
army commander in the area.
As soldiers approached the
building, al Askar and another
man ran toward a car parked
outside and opened fire from the
vehicle, wounding one soldier,
Haliva said. The commander of
the force returned fire, killing al
Askar and arresting the second
Saadi, meanwhile, tried to
flee through a back door, but ran
into an Israeli force, Haliva said.
Saadi opened fire and was killed
by troops, the commander said.
Islamic Jihad threatened
revenge attacks. "Our retaliation
for this crime will be unprec-
edented said a spokesman for
the group in Gaza, who only gave
his code name, Abu Abdallah, for
fear of Israeli reprisals.
In a statement, the Islamic-
Jihad's military wing blamed
Israel for the breakdown of an
informal, 9-month-old truce, or
Saadi's killing "reflects the
serious intention of the enemy
to end this calm, which we do
not regret the statement said.
"We are not going to stand with
our hands tied while the blood
of our holy warriors is being shed
Islamic Jihad, one of the
smallest of the Palestinian mili-
tant groups, has been ambiva-
lent about the informal truce,
which has largely been kept by
the larger Hamas group since
February. Islamic Jihad has car-
ried out a series of attacks in
recent months, including suicide
attacks in the towns of Tel Aviv
and Netanya. Islamic Jihad main-
tained the attacks were carried
out in retaliation for perceived
Israeli truce violations.
Haliva said Saadi and his
followers were involved in
attacks that killed 12 Israelis and
wounded ISO. The colonel said
Saadi was planning new attacks,
but did not provide details.
Palestinian negotiator
Saeb Erekat said the Israeli
raid in Tulkarem jeopardized the
Commenting on the Wolfen-
sohn letter, Erekat said he under-
stood the envoy's "frustration
and that his complaints should
be taken seriously.
Wolfensohn complained of
delays in reopening the Rafah
crossing along the Egyptian
border, Gaza's main gateway to
the outside world.
Israel closed the crossing
shortly before the withdrawal,
saying it would be shut for six
months to allow for new security
and customs arrangements. Its
opening is crucial for the eco-
nomic recovery of Gaza, and the
Palestinians and Wolfensohn are
pressing to unseal it as quickly
as possible.
Israel has delayed decision
on a key element of new border
arrangements - the deployment
of foreign inspectors from the
European Union, Wolfensohn
wrote. He said he had hoped to
wrap up an agreement during a
recent trip to the region.
"While the Palestinians were
eager to come to closure, (Israel)
preferred to leave difficult ques-
tions to committees that will
not meet until after the Jewish
holidays he wrote. A month of
Jewish holidays ends this week.
Wolfensohn also complained
that the flow of Palestinian cargo
and laborers into Israel, the Pales-
tinians' main export market, has
also ground to a near halt.
Israeli Foreign Ministry
spokesman Mark Regev said the
government wants Gaza to be a
"success story" and understands
the need to reopen the border
crossings. Meetings are planned
in the coming days, he said.
But he said Israel's security
must be kept in mind. Simply
reopening the borders would
enable militants to smuggle
weapons and explosives into
Gaza, carry out deadly attacks
inside Israel and derail fledgling
attempts at reconciliation, he
said. Regev said recent violence
in the West Bank underscored
Israel's security concerns.

Our View
Time management:
a problem for
students and staff
Often, students and staff members find themselves
trying to fit too many activities into a short period of
time. How are students expected to go to class all
day, go to work, do all of their homework, maintain
relationships with their familiessignificant others
and then find some time to eat, sleep and have a
social life? Along that same note, how are profes-
sors expected to teach all day, hold office hours,
plan for upcoming classes, writegrade tests, do
research, spend time with their families and then
have some time to eat sleep and have a social
life? With so many things expected of the average
member of the ECU community, it seems impos-
sible to get everything done and actually steep.
TEC staff knows all about trying to juggle too many
activities and obligations while still maintaining
some kind of order in our lives. Many professors
at ECU suggest that for every hour you spend in
class, you should spend two to three hours out of
class studying for that course, not including test
preparation or project completion. The average
student takes 14 classroom hours, unless they
are in specialized school, which translates into
at least 42 study hours outside of class. Add in
your classioom hours and hours that are needed
for tests or projects and you have a minimum of
60 hours of school work, assuming that you are
together enough to only spend an extra four hours
of time on tests and projects. If there are only 168
hours in a seven-day week ana if you are spend-
ing a minimum of 60 hours doing school related
items, how do you manage the rest of your time
to get everything else done? Time management
is a good skill to master while you are in college
because in the work world, good time manage-
ment skills are a must TEC has some time man-
agement suggestions:
-Prioritize your activities, deciding which are vitally
important and which could be done at a later
time. This can help you to only do things that are
graded assignments or work obligations and wait
to do things like scrubbing the kitchen floor until
you have time.
-Set goals for yourself as a type of reward system.
Say, for example, that you love the show "NipTuck"
and you have to watch it every Tuesday at 10 p.m.
If you make a deal with yourself that after you finish
that 10-page paper you have been putting off that
you can sit down with some popcorn and watch
"NipTuck you will work more efficiently, having
been working toward a goal.
-Make a schedule of events, when you are going
to complete certain assignments and activities.
Include your work schedule, any kind of social
obligation that you may have and some time for
yourself. There are unused hours in your day that
can make your life more efficiently run. If you stick
to this schedule for about 14 days, weekends
included, then you will be in the routine and your
time will be efficiently managed.
-No matter where you are going, have something
to do. If your car needs an oil-change and you are
going to wait with it bring some studying with you
rather than watching whatever non-cable station
is playing in the waiting room. Between classes,
before classes start, on the bus and while you are
in the car with someone else are all great opportu-
nities to get some work done rather than wasting
time. You will be amazed at how much faster and
more efficiently you will work.
Following these four easy suggestions may help
you plan your time better and give you more time
to hang out with friends, work out see a movie
or do some other activity that you never seem to
have time for.

Have you ever heard of a lynching party?
'And the Beat Goes On
Consistency in life is an important
requirement for some people. They
expect the sun to rise in the east every-
day (until the Earth's wobble increases
to the point of no return, thereby caus-
ing the Earth to flop over on its axis and
destroying all life), the tides to rise and
fall (until global warming causes all the
oceans to evaporate, thereby destroying
all life) and to get a cold in the summer
and winter (unless the bird flu becomes
a pandemic that kills untold millions
of people, thereby destroying life as
we know it).
These people know that life con-
sists of being born and paying taxes,
living, marrying, having children and
paying taxes, dying and paying still
more taxes. They know that the Post
Office will raise the price of a stamp
every three to four years or so, the IRS
will go after the "little guy" before the
big corporation and, most naturally, all
politicians are crooks. Unfortunately
for those who revel in consistency, that
may no longer be totally true.
A rather interesting and courageous
Senator from Oklahoma last week stood
up on the floor of the United States
Senate and challenged his colleagues to
cut the crap and put their money where
their mouths are when It comes to the
use of taxpayer money and the deficit.
His name is Tom Coburn and he is now
"persona non grata" in the Senate, if
not all of Washington, D.C.
What Senator Coburn did was
introduce amendments that would
have killed some of the extravagant
pork barrel theft of taxpayer money
that had been place in previous legisla-
tion and redirected some of the moneys
to Katrina relief. This was legislation,
mind you, which our Republican con-
trolled Congress passed and our Repub-
lican President signed into law which,
despite what happened after Katrina
and Rita included billions of dollars of
wasteful, unconscionable spending,
Senator Coburn's amendments
would have blocked spending on the
following projects: a $223 million
bridge to a town in Alaska with a
population of SO people as well as a
$229 million bridge that would con-
nect Anchorage, Alaska to hundreds of
square miles of well, nothing, really,
unless you consider undeveloped,
unpopulated wetlands something
worth building a bridge to. These were
pet projects of Alaska's rather influen-
tial and money grubbing Republican
Senator, Ted Stevens.
Similarly, Senator Coburn intro-
duced amendments that would have
cut spending on a $200,000 animal
facility in a small Rhode Island town
(is there anything but small towns in
Rhode Island?), proposed by (puta-
tively) Republican Senator Lincoln
Chaffee- $950,000 for a private parking
garage in Omaha, Neb proposed by
Republican Senator Chuck Hagel and
$500,000 for a sculpture park (what-
ever that is) in Seattle, Washington,
proposed by Democrat (and rabidly
Liberal) Senator Patty Murray.
That's it. Somewhere around $454
million dollars cut and diverted to
Katrina relief. A measly drop in the
bucket considering the billions in
pork that is stuffed into legislation
every year. And it was for a good, noble
So, how do you think it was received
in the Senate? Ever hear of a lynching
Washington's rabidly Liberal Sena-
tor, the Honorable Ms. Patty Murray,
stood up and threatened any Senator
who voted for the Coburn amend-
ments! She stated in no uncertain
terms that Senators voting "Aye" would
see projects for their states closely
scrutinized (i.e. BLOCKED) by other
unhappy Senators (i.e. HER). Remem-
ber, she leveled this threat because she
stood to loose half a million dollars for
one of her pet projects. How did the
other targeted Senators respond?
Let's seeSenator Ted Stevens (R-
AK), he who stood to loose over $450
million dollars (this time), had a con-
niption. He reportedly stated succinctly
that if the Coburn amendments passed
he would leave the Senate. I wish they
would have called his bluff! That would
have been worth paying to see.
As for Senator's Chaffee and Hagel,
well, while they weren't as histrionic as
their "distinguished colleagues it will
be a cold day in Hell before they sup-
port something like this. Translation:
they opposed it.
As a matter of fact, when the
Coburn amendment came to a vote,
only 14 other Senators had the courage
to stand up for fiscal responsibility in
Congress. Here are their names:
Allard (R-CO), Allen (R-VA), Bayh
(D-IN), Burr (R-NC), Coburn (R-
OK), Conrad (D-ND), DeMint (R-SC),
DeWine (R-OH), Feingold (D-WI),
Graham (R-SC), Kyi (R-AZ), Landrieu
(D-LA), Sessions (R-AL), Sununu (R-NH)
and Vitter (R-LA).
You will notice the conspicuous
absence of support from big name
politicos such as Ted Kennedy, Hillary
Clinton, Barbara Boxer, Dick Durbin,
John Kerry, Kaye Hutchinson, Harry
Reid, Arlen Specter and our very own
Elizabeth Dole, to name a few.
It seems that the chest-beating, teeth
gnashing rhetoric about controlling
"runaway deficits" doesn't mean much
to the 82 Senators who opposed the
Coburn amendments (three Senators
didn't vote). It is equally obvious that
rhetoric is not the only meaningless
thing to these people every single
person who is homeless, destitute or in
any way impacted by hurricanes Katrina
and Rita is equally meaningless.
Remember that the next time any of
those 82 Senators opens their mouths
and spews forth platitudes about defi-
cits and fiscal responsibility. Remember
that as these politicians try to tug on
our heart strings about needing to raise
taxes to "help" the storm survivors.
Remember that these 82 politicians
showed where their priorities and con-
cerns truly lie when the next election
comes around.
Most importantly, remember that
because of Tom Coburn and 14 other
courageous Senators, there is now a
little less consistency in life. Not all
politicians are crooks.
I can live with that inconsistency.
In My Opinion
(KRT) � You go, girl! Germany has a
new female head of state. Geena Davis'
compelling performance in "Com-
mander in Chief" helps us imagine that
America could, too. The presidents of
prestigious Princeton, MIT and Brown
are women. Miami-Dade has a veritable
dynasty of effective female state's attor-
neys. In Boston, the sheriff and police
commissioner are women.
The face of leadership is increasingly
female - far from enough, but getting there.
Laura Bush agreed too readily that reactions
to Harriet Miers' Supreme Court nomination
could reflect sexism. At Miers' level, women
are succeeding or stumbling on their merits.
So why, girlfriends and boyfriends, is there
still a women's issue in America?
The World Economic Forum
recently released its first-ever report
on the gender gap, ranking 58 nations
on five indicators of success in closing
the gap. I was invited to present the U.S.
perspective at a briefing at the New York
Stock Exchange. That assignment was
tough, because the United States (long
accustomed to lead the world) ranked
a dismal No. 17. We lagged behind
Scandinavian nations - Anglo-Saxon
counterparts New Zealand, Canada,
Britain and Australia - and much-
maligned France. We landed barely
ahead of Costa Rica.
Some reasons a "woman problem"
-Wage discrimination. As econo-
mist Evelyn Murphy points out in her
new book, "Getting Even "Women
working full time, not part-time, not
on maternity leave, not consultants,
still earn only 77 cents to a full-time
working man's dollar Yet U.S. employ-
ers pay millions of dollars annually
to settle sex-discrimination claims,
Murphy says - $263 million in 2002
-Educated professional women opting
out. Accurate data is scarce, but anecdotes
are oft-repeated. A typical national
headline: Many women at elite colleges
set career path to motherhood. Affluent
suburbs teem with 30-something moth-
ers with MBAs, JDs, MDs and Ph.D.s who
left partner tracks at investment banks
or law firms to focus on their children.
Harvard Business School sees the need to
help alumnae re-enter the work force.
-Struggling single mothers. Accord-
ing to last week's Census Bureau report,
29 percent of all new mothers are
unmarried, and about half of unmar-
ried mothers are poor. Washington,
D.C, where national policy is set, has
the highest rates of single motherhood
nationwide, and 36.3 percent of all new
D.C. mothers live in poverty. (Hello,
Washington pols, are you listening?)
Some analysts say that women don't
stand up for themselves, arguing that
the wage gap could be closed if women
demanded higher pay. (I'm doubtful.)
Others argue that the child-bearing
years handicap and sidetrack women.
David D'Alessandro, former CEO of
insurance giant John Hancock, invokes
the 8020 rule. He says that women
have come 80 percent of the way toward
equal pay and leadership, because of
opportunity-enhancing programs and
their own hard work. He argues that
the remaining 20 percent is plagued by
subtle discrimination, as male decision-
makers assume that their best women
will reduce their commitment because
of family responsibilities.
Deloitte St Touche, an accounting
and consulting firm depending heavily
on female talent, started a pioneering
Women's Initiative in 1993 to make
it easier to balance work and family,
with stellar results. But family is still a
women's issue; few men use Deloitte's
leaves or flexible work.
In the WEF rankings, the U.S.
shines In women's educational attain-
ment and has good scores for economic
participation and political empower-
ment. However, the United States ranks
poorly on both economic opportunity
and health and well-being, dragged
down by meager maternity leave and
limited government-supported child-
care. And compared with other devel-
oped nations, America has high rates
of teenage pregnancies and maternal
mortality - shocking given a relatively
large number of physicians.
If America really lived up to the
"family values" claim of the party
in power, we would help our poor-
est women and not let our brightest
women flounder on their own.
This is the American paradox. We
applaud individual achievement against
all odds but fail to put in place the social
and community supports that could
shift the odds. You go, girl! - straight to
your nearest elected officials to demand
change. If not for yourself, then for your
sisters and daughters.

Picks of the Week:
The Spill Canvas- One Fell Swoop.
I was introduced to this band a few
weeks back, and after being sent
some MP3's and having a friend
make me a copy of their newest
release, I can't stop listening to them.
Their sound is sort of a cross between
Dashboard Confessional, The Early
November and The Starting Line, but
better. Do yourself a favor and take a
risk with this CD instead of buying the
over processed generic music you'll
hear on the radio. My favorite track:
"This is for Keeps
'f- Halloween is rapidly approaching,
and this celebration is never complete
without watching at least one scary
movie. This 1990 release is based off
of the Stephen King novel in which a
demonic clown seeks to destroy the
lives of young children. While it might
not sound scary at first, after taking
one look at this clown, you'll never
want to go to the circus again.
The 2006 World Series: Watch this
year's showdown between the
National League's Houston Astros
and the American League's Chicago
White Sox. The Sox have already
taken game one, but can the Astros
battle back to take the ultimate
baseball title? Tune in to find out.

Names In the News:
Professor Cameron?
Cameron Diaz is wowing them
in her lead role in the film In Her
Shoes and she's riveting them in
a real role as guest lecturer at
Stanford University. She surprised
a class there Thursday when she
showed up to help lead a session
on environmentally friendly design.
Her appearance came as part of
taping for an mtvU program called
"Stand-In" in which celebrities teach
a class and in turn, astound the
students, who thought they'd be
getting another round of the same
old academia. How would you react if
Madonna, for instance, popped in and
took the lectern? She did, Tuesday,
at New York's Hunter College. A
champion of environmental causes,
Diaz served as a sidekick for friend
and environmental architect William
McDonough, a consulting professor.
"He's very charismatic, captivating

giggled when Diaz, 33, interrupted the

and later lined up to snap pictures
with the actress on their cell phones.

X-Fest rattles Kinston concertgoers
Chevelle, Crossfade and
Taproot bring their rock
to eastern North Carolina
New Rock 99X held their
sixth annual X-Fest in Kinston,
NC Saturday, Oct. 22, beginning
at 10 a.m.
Chevelle, Crossfade, Taproot,
The Fray and other local bands
played to a group of over 5,000
people who came out to enjoy an
afternoon of hard rock music.
Also in attendance were the
girls from Deja Vu and the calen-
dar girls for the Girls of Carolina
who helped introduce some of
the bands.
The X-Fest has been going
strong for six shows and each
year, the attendance figures
continue to rise, and the show
is never held in the same place
twice. WXNR, the host station
based out of New Bern, has
moved the location around from
Jacksonville, Greenville and
Kinston over the years allowing
fans from different cities the
opportunity to attend the show
without having to drive such a
long distance.
The main stage show opened
with Denver, Colorado's The
Fray. This band hardly met the
hard rock bill, but still played a
decent set nonetheless. Even lead
singer Issac Slade agreed with my
last statement.
"We didn't fit the bill, so we
could either sulk or play into it
said Slade about their set.
Most of the 5,000 in atten-
dance had probably never heard
of The Fray, but they received a
nice reception after the show and
when the 99X DJs asked what the
crowd thought of them.
The Fray recently wrapped up
a tour with Weezer and can be
seen on tour later this year with
Ben Folds.
Next up were Michigan's
Taproot, a band who are able
to bridge the gap between hard
rock and true heavy metal. Their
sound pulls fans from both
sides of the fence. They've even
landed slots of the annual Ozzfest
Lead singer Stephen Richards
said that he was exhausted from
the touring they have been doing
in support of their latest opus
"Blue-Sky Research Taproot
drove 13 hours from Kentucky
in one evening to play the after-
noon music festival.
"Awesome said Richards,
responding to my question about
his reaction to the rambunctious
audience full of moshers and
crowed surfers.
Thirdly were Columbia, SC's
Crossfade. WXNR DJ Sully intro-
duced the band, saying that he
helped them get their start in
the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Lead singer Ed Sloan said that
Sully was the first person to play
them on the radio ever under
their former name Sugardaddy
Superstar. Because of the airplay
and the connections Sully had,
MTV's Matt Pinfield helped bring
Crossfade to the mainstream.
"It was great to get band in
this area after all the cancelled
shows said Sloan about their
visit to eastern North Carolina.
Crossfade recently wrapped
up an 18 month tour, including
Kristin Murnane, Kristin Day and Ed McKim enjoying their crunches.
Survival of the Fittest:
Week Three
Now we know who is
truly dedicated
The Friday before Spring
Break, Ed and I were ready. Kris-
tin M. had to go home to Mary-
land, but he and I completed our
first hour at the SRC with our
personal trainer.
Even though I thought my
legs would fall off on the way out
of the building, 1 was fairly sure
that I would be able to spend my
vacation in an empty gym.
I woke up Saturday morn-
ing and couldn't get out of bed.
Sunday, Monday and Tuesday
weren't much better either.
I realized that all this time
that I've been going to the gym, I
haven't been pushing myself like
I should, which is why I stopped
seeing any results after the first
couple of weeks. I figured that
because I could make It for 30
minutes on the elliptical, I was
on the right track.
It's amazing what happens
when someone shows you the
right way to do something. I
never knew that such simple
movements done without a
machine could be so effective.
The first week, the majority
of our workout consisted of run-
ning and walking lunges. Well,
at least the most painful part
was the running and walking
lunges. We also worked on our
arms, but strength training was
consistently interrupted for more
time on the track to keep our
heart rates up.
So by Thursday I was able
to move again and began run-
ning around my neighborhood.
Unfortunately, that wasn't going
to help me prepare much for
our next Friday meeting with
the trainer.
But this last session didn't
seem as difficult to me. Maybe it
was because I was more prepared
for what was to come - maybe it
was because I hate running on
the track more than anything
else - or maybe it was because
Kristin M. came and I love seeing
her face. I think it was easy
because Ed taunted me the whole
time - he thinks he's just so hard
to keep up with. He might have
won this week, but it was not by
much at all and next week we'll
see what's what.
This week we started on the
elliptical, which I feel right at
home on. We also did a wide
variety of movements to train
just about every major muscle
before we moved to the rowing
machine. I was mostly amused
that the SRC bought some with
actual water inside, and it helped
me take my mind off the pain.
I had used the rowing machine
pretty regularly last year, but
nowhere near as intensely as this.
It's not only difficult because I'm
trying to keep my numbers some-
where near everyone else's, but
we had to actually think about
what muscles we were using. I
still don't think I figured out how
to use my back muscles.
see FITTEST page A6
their most recent run with Chev-
elle. Now that the vast majority
of their touring is completed, the
band will return to the studio
to record a follow up album.
Sloan said to look for that album
around April or May.
Finally, headliners Chevelle
took the stage. Chevelle did
touring this summer with Velvet
Revolver and picked up some new
fans along the way. The entire
audience absorbed every ounce of
energy that the hard rock trio was
giving out. Crowd surfers poured
over the rail at a rate of almost
four a minute. Numerous mosh
pits engulfed unsuspecting con-
certgoers. And, most impressively,
5,000 people jumping up and
down in unison was a sight to see.
For the hard rock fans who
wanted to stay away from "Reggae
on the Lake X-Fest seemed to
be the place where everyone
was. WXNR DJ Renn promised
everyone yet another X-Fest next
year. He did not mention where,
when or who was going to be a
part of it. If the show is anything
like X-Fest Six, it will be a most
impressive afternoon of music for
all who attend.

A Day in the Life of: A Tattoo Artist
What kind of work
really goes into ink
Last Thursday I spoke
with tattooist Brian Lee at
Gary's Skin Grafix in down-
town Greenville. He was
very obliging to answer my
questions about the life of a
tattooist. It is Lee's hope to
dispel the stereotypes given
to tattooists and to the art of
tattooing. Lee stated "If you
could prove It tattooing was
100 percent safe, you could
fight the taboo
No tattoo parlor is the
same, and so their day-to-day
activities vary. Lee says "there
is nothing in common" about
tattoo parlors, it depends on
location and simply who the
parlor Is.
Lee arrives to work around
11 a.m. to prepare the store
for the day. His typical day
begins with cleaning abso-
lutely anything that needs to
be cleaned in the store, from
cleaning the windows, sweep-
ing the front entrance, to
disposing of medical wastes.
Lee believes that it is highly
important to keep tattoo
parlors impeccably clean to
ensure everyone's safety as
well as the business' image.
The image of dirty tattoo
parlors is a dying vision espe-
cially in the past 20 years,
though many of them still
exist. Today, most tattoo par-
lors try to keep their stores as
clean as possible. Each tattoo
parlor must be inspected
and licensed by the State
Health Department, and, of
course, all tattoo parlors must
obtain permits issued by
the state to legally operate
their businesses.
Safe and clean tattoo par-
lors use brand-new, one-time-
use sterilized needles for each
customer, one-time-use ink
containers discarded after
each customer, latex medical
gloves for the tattoo artists
and medical-grade surface dis-
infectants, which are similar
to bleach substances.
"We bleach everything,
sometimes two and three
times just to make sure Lee

since the 1980s.
Lee is assured
that truly tal-

tattoo artists
make a substan-
tial living. Seri-
ous tattooists are
artists in other
fields, and many
artists' works
are featured in
expensive coffee table books and
even some exhibited in muse-
ums. Fine-art tattooists appeal
to a more affluent clientele and
have the raw talent to draw any-
thing on-site and on demand.
"I use what I went to school
for Lee says.
The image of tattoos is
moving out of the jail cells, off
of the motorcycles and away
from gang members. Images of
skulls, devils and flames are on
the out. Lee says that he will
not tattoo any symbols of hate
or any other image that con-
flicts with his moral standpoint.

to tattoo for about another 10

'Rainbow Fish' splashing into Wright Auditorium
7?e cassc children's
book is made into a
musical for all ages
Everyone seems to have a
favorite book from each stage
of life. As children we are
attracted to books that teach
lessons and spark our imagina-
tions, but as we grow older we
stray from these foundations.
When we are adults we tend
to read books that are more realis-
ticand relative to our lives, losing
sight of whimsical elements that
bring the world around us to life.
We will be able to embrace our
roots when the classic children's
Rainbow Fish has beautiful scales that are the envy of the other fish.
book, The Rainbow Fish, splashes
into Wright Auditorium as part of
ECU's Family Fare Series. Marcus
Pfister's popular book will be
transformed into musical form by
ArtsPower National Touring The-
atre on Saturday, Nov. S at 2 p.m.
The Rainbow Fish reminds
everyone that true beauty comes
from within and happiness can
be found within the bonds of
friendship. Rainbow Fish is the
most beautiful fish in the sea
because of her multi-colored
scales. Her vanity soon begins to
interfere with her friendships.
When her friends ask her
to share her scales she refuses,
believing that her colorful scales
are the only thing that make
her truly unique. Her friends no
longer want her company so she
sets out alone. During her jour-
ney she faces harsh loneliness
and learns that her scales only
make her beautiful on the outside
and that the inside is all up to her.
She returns to her friends and
begins sharing her scales with all
of the fish in the sea. The happi-
ness that is ignited through her
sharing allows Rainbow Fish to
find delight in the friendships
that she has restored.
The Rainbow Fish has sold
over four million copies and has
been translated into over 30 lan-
guages since its 1992 publication.
ArtPower's artistic director Greg
Gunning adapted the book for
the theater by writing the lyrics
and directing its production.

One great word combination: Indoor waterpark
Williamsburg's Great
Wolf bodge is your next
vacation destination
As fall finally envelops
Greenville, NC bringing its cold
breezes, dreary weather and skies
that look like suicide, a little
sign with that inscription would
probably be a welcome sight for
anyone - especially when it's
standing in front of a 55,000
square foot indoor waterpark.
The waterpark is called Bear
Track Landing and is the main
attraction at the Great Wolf
Lodge, which is located in the
heart of Williamsburg, Va prac-
tically neighbors with Busch
Gardens and Water Country
U.S.A. However, the Great Wolf
Lodge offers so much that guests
just might forgo their visit to the
local theme parks and opt to just
relax at the Lodge instead.
"We want the best possible
experience for our custom-
ers says Cathy Chaplain, the
Director of Sale and Marketing
for the Great Wolf Lodge. To
do that, explains Chaplain,
the Lodge tries to be more
like a cruise ship than a hotel
- everything that a guest could
possibly want to do Is but a few
short steps away.
The top of most guests' to-
do lis of course, is Bear Track
Landing which is open from
8:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. 365 days a
year. The waterpark may have a
few sections devoted to children
but you don't have to be a child
to enjoy the park.
Bear Track Landing features
eight water slides including
Alberta Falls which features two
tube slides covering 687 feet,
twisting inside and outside the
Lodge and ultimately dumps
riders into a pool below. In addi-
tion, there is a 461 foot, four-
person raft slide (River Canyon
Run) and two three-story body
slides (Totem Towers.) There are
also three kiddie slides but that's
neither here nor there.
Much of the rest of Bear Track
Landing focuses on relaxation
rather than exhilaration. There
is an 111,000 gallon wave pool to
give you all the fun of a dip in the
ocean without the sand, sunburn
and seashells that sever your feet.
The wave pool works in 10-
minute intervals and when it's
not on, you can just float or
you can jump (not literally) into
one of the 7,000 gallon boulder-
themed hot tubs. Either that or
you can take a ride on the park's
lazy river Crooked Creek.
Finally, there's that afore-
mentioned 1,000 gallon bucket
- sitting atop Fort Macken-
zie, a four-story interactive
waterfort - which tips over
after five minutes of collecting
water and pours down with
the sheer force of jackham-
mer, causing anyone beneath
to wish they had tied their
bathing suit just a little bit
Granted, Water Country
U.S.A. is a much more expansive
park than Bear Track Landing
.but Bear Track certainly has its
charm. Rain is never a factor
and during the off-season, it can
be like having an entire park
to yourself.
But Great Wolf Lodge is more
than a mere waterpark. It's a full-
out resort. Each of the ten dif-
ferent suite designs at the Great
Wolf Lodge can comfortably
accommodate at least six guests -
many of the rooms even
come equipped with a flat
screen television and a
Nintendo Gamecube.
When you're tired of play-
ing in the park - you've still got
options. The Lodge has a 7,000
square feet video game arcade
which Chaplain calls "Chuck E.
Cheese on steroids which has
all the essentials - a hoops game,
fighting games and Madden NFL.
There are two restaurants, a
snack shop, a fitness room, a full-
spa - and the Great Wolf Lodge
plans to grow more and more
over the next few years, whether
it's adding to the waterpark,
adding new rooms or adding
something completely different
that guests may enjoy.
Everyone enjoys waterparks,
but the option of being able to go
year-round, rain or shine, make
the Great Wolf Lodge that much
more appealing.
Bucket seen above fills with 1,000 gallons of water every 5 minutes.
Understandably, a lot of
students get bored in Greenville.
There are only so many times
you can hang out at the Wal-
Mart without wanting some-
thing more. The Great Wolf
Lodge, with it's reasonably rates,
could be something more and
would be the perfect destination
for a group of ECU students look-
ing for an escape.

for Lee is a medium to sell art

"It's good karma says Lee.
Tattoos have begun to appeal
to people from every walk of
life, as tattoo parlors now offer
a greater number of ink colors,
more fine artists are becoming tat-
tooists, tattoos are more socially
accepted, and many, though not
all, tattoo parlors have higher
hygiene standards. To ensure that
you are getting a safe and great

Krog finishes tied for third
ECU freshman Lene Krog
recorded her third top-four finish of
the season Sunday as she carded a
even-par tournament score of 216 (70-
72-74) to finish tied for third at the Taco
Bell Intercollegiate. The tournament
was played at the par-72, 6,232-yard
Bradford Creek Golf Course. Krog,
who is ranked 60th by GolfWeek
and posts a 72.8 stroke average,
helped the Pirates (33-11-2) to a tie
for fifth place in the team portion of
the tournament with a 54-hole score
of 898. Senior Jamie Quinn recorded
her best finish of the season with a
tie for 24th after carding a final round
one-over par 73 for an eight-over par
(224) tournament score. Fellow Pirate
Heidi Helliesen finished tied for 47th
(230), Emelie Lind claimed a share of
64th place (234) and Jessica Hauser
was one stroke behind Lind (235)
finishing tied for 70th. Shawn Kelley
posted rounds of 89,86 and 85 for a
54-hole score of 260 as an individual.
Augusta State (875) won the team
portion of the event with a five stroke
advantage over Georgia State (880),
while Maryland, Miami (Fla), Western
Carolina and ECU rounded out the
top-five. Maryland's Katie Stepanek
took home the individual crown with
a five-under par 211. ECU will be back
in action on Oct. 31 when they travel
to Kiawah Island, SC to participate in
the Kiawah Intercollegiate in the last
fall event of the season.
Tigers wound Pirates with late score
DeAngelo Williams fights for a first down during ECU'S Saturday afternoon game against Memphis. Williams finished the day with a career-high 39 carries.
Memphis holds off ECU'S 24-point
second-half to capture victory
Slow and methodical are no words to describe
Memphis running back DeAngelo Williams, but
the Memphis offense used Williams heavily in a
slow and methodical eight-plus minute drive that
dashed ECU'S hopes.
Williams, the nation's leading rusher, carried
the ball for a career-high 39 times en route to a
narrow 27-24 Memphis (4-3,3-2) victory. The highly
touted senior accounted for 47 yards on the fourth
quarter 15 play, 80 yard drive that sealed the game.
The Pirates (3-4, 2-2) desperate after an anemic
first-half, committed a critical facemask penalty on
third down. Backup running back Joseph Doss was
bottled up at the ECU 16 when Pierre Parker was
flagged for a personal foul while leading Doss out
of bounds. Three plays later, Memphis quarterback
Maurice Avery extended the lead to 27-17 with only
2:17 remaining.
"I'm proud of the way the defense played in the
second half said first-year Head Coach Skip Holtz.
"Except for that long scoring drive, they played
much better
After the Memphis drive, ECU's offense marched
down the field with nine consecutive passes. James
Pinkney left 10 seconds on the clock when he
found Philip Henry in the corner of the end zone,
but ECU's onside kick was recovered by Memphis.
"We decided that we were going to throw
the ball in the second half Holtz said.
"We were going to open it up and throw
it every down. The coaching staff) fig-
ured it would take 24-28 points to win it
Pinkney moved into third place on ECU's all-
time career competitions list (625) passing Jeff
Blake. The junior's three scores marked the eighth
time he has passed for multiple touchdowns.
Once again, ECU fell down early coming out of
the gates. On ECU's first play from scrimmage Gary
Freeman snapped the ball over Pinkney's head. Three
of ECU's first four drives resulted in three-and-outs.
Meanwhile, Memphis scored on their first pos-
session. Lou Groza award candidate Stephen Gos-
tkowski kicked a 51-yard field goal on Memphis's
first possession. Two easy Williams 1-yard touch-
down runs extended the lead to 17-0. Memphis
earned 290 total yards in the first-half compared
to ECU's 85.

What could a team want

your home field, no sitting for
countless hours traveling to far
away campuses The advantage
is certainly there, but capitalizing
on the opportunity is easier said

Over the past week, the Lady

a home stand. Tulsa (8-8-2, 3-4)

postponed Oct. 7 match.
The Pirates (7-11-0, 3-5-0)
entered Wednesday's match with
Memphis hoping to gain ground
in the Conference USA standings.
With a 2-3 record in conference

After each team traded
field goals in the third quarter,
Pinkney found Aundrae Allison
in the end zone from 27 yards
out. Allison caught 10 balls for
108 yards. Already through
seven games, the junior moved
into second in ECU'S history for
single- season receptions (56).
Allison was the second-lead-
ing rusher with two carries for
20 yards while lining up as quar-
terback. Chris Johnson struggled
for the third consecutive game
in gaining 22 yards on only six

six of seven plays on a 78-yard
scoring drive. Johnson caught a
5-yard touchdown on a wheel

10:25 remaining.

Memphis made it loud and clear
to the Pirates that winning in
C-USA is not easy. The Tigers
managed to fend off nine Pirate
shots in the first half while only
notching one of their own,
nevertheless keeping the score
In the 57th minute, mid-
fielder Tara Shaw scored her
second goal of the year for the
Pirates after receiving a cross
from Sara Biggar. All the Pirates
had to do was hold off the Tiger
offence that hardly put any pres-
sure on ECU goalkeeper Amber
Campbell all day and they could
chalk up another win.
Then, on their fourth corner
kick of the match, Memphis
managed to tie the game after
Candace Halverson headed in
Shoko Mikami's cross. Mikami
then scored the game-winner
three minutes in to overtime for
a 2-1 Memphis win.
Next up was Tulsa Friday
afternoon. After a relatively quiet
first half that was highlighted by
an early goal in the 12th minute
by ECU star forward Meghan
McCallion, the teams combined
for 15 shots in an action-packed
second half.
Tulsa lit up the scoreboard in
the 72nd minute by a deflected
shot by forward Katie Ward.
ECU retaliated two minutes later
when Allison Howell scored her
third goal of the year by heading
in a Nicole Moore corner kick.
The Pirates then got an insur-
ance goal from Melissa Penney in
the 82nd minute for her fourth
on the year. Allison Howell made
the assist on the play by making
a nice cross to Penney who put
the ball past Tulsa keeper Meri-
dith Hart.
That goal showed to be
important as Tulsa forward Katie
German put the Golden Hurri-
cane at a one goal disadvantage
on a penalty kick in the closing
seconds of the match. ECU fin-
ished out the game and picked
up its seventh victory winning
"This was a must-win game
for us and the team played very
well said Head Coach Rob
Donnenwirth as quoted by ECU
Sports Information.
"We have played four games
in the last seven days and I think
our team has shown a lot of guts
coming out and competing at a
high level
To close out the home stand,
the Pirates took on SMU Sunday.
The Mustangs, one of the top
teams in C-USA, put up 11 first
half shots, seven stopped by
Amber Campbell. Entering half
time, neither team had gotten
on the board.
The second half similarly saw
a lack of any scoring until the last
ten minutes when SMU's Carley
Phillips scored on a penalty
kick to put the Mustangs up 1-0.
Olivia O'Rear sealed the match
for SMU with a goal in the 89th
minute, making the score 2-0.
Pirate seniors Melissa Penney,
Lindsi Troxler, Ashley Stopa, Kate
Lowe, Tracy FitzGerald and
Meghan McCallion played their
last game at Bunting Field.
The Lady Pirates will be on
the road for West Virginia to
face Marshall (1-15-0, 0-8-0)
Oct. 29 in their last game of the
season. With a win, the Pirates
can secure their second consecu-
tive spot in the Conference USA

Instant replay seems destined to expand
(KRT) � Upon further review,
most baseball purists continue to
resist instant replay.
They would rather debate for
weeks, maybe months, whether
Angels catcher Josh Paul trapped
or caught the pitch that Chi-
cago's AJ. Pierzynski swung at
and missed in what could have
been the final out of Game 2 of
the American League Champion-
ship Series.
They analyzed television
replays of that pitch from every
angle. They dissected umpire
Doug Eddings' hand motions
and the puff of dirt that emerged
from Paul's glove. But don't
expect video replay to invade
their hallowed, if imperfect,
sport. Not as long as Bud Selig
is commissioner, anyway, and
maybe not after that, either.
"The game's good the way it
is, so let's leave it like that said
former Florida Marlins manager
Jack McKeon, reached at his
North Carolina home.
"Human error has always been
part of the game. We make mis-
takes, the players make mistakes,
and the umpires make mistakes. If
we start to challenge every call, the
game will get too long, and it still
won't be perfect, anyway
Pencils have erasers. Comput-
ers have delete keys. And sports,
more and more, are welcoming
replay as they have embraced tech-
nological advances in equipment,
facilities and training methods.
The NFL, NBA and NHL use
cameras to settle close plays.
Through six weeks of this NFL
season, 102 plays have been
reviewed and 33 overruled. The
NBA uses video aid to clarify shots
at the buzzer, and NHL coaches
and officials can appeal to a replay
judge who verifies whether the
puck crossed the goal line.
Rugby and cricket use replay.
Soccer, tennis and swimming are
talking about introducing it.
Even college sports are going
high-tech. This year, for the
first time, nine of 11 Division
I-A conferences are using video
replay in football, as are all the
bowl games. Thus far, 254 calls
have been challenged, and 78
were overturned.
One of the only major-college
games that did not use replay this
season was Notre Dame-USC last
weekend, because Trojans coach
Pete Carroll is against it and as
visiting coach had the option to
turn it down.
Had officials been allowed to
see the TV monitors, they might
have spotted Matt Leinart's
fumble out of bounds at the 2-
or 3-yard line instead of the 1.
They also might have seen USC
running back Reggie Bush nudge
Leinart into the end zone for the
winning touchdown. Had either
play been altered, USC might not
be No.l in the BCS today.
But even though replay is
becoming commonplace else-

game, as they were only able to
score 15 in Rice's 30-15 win. Rice
was also able to win the fourth
game of the match to tie the
series at two games a piece. In the
fifth and deciding match, ECU
and Rice battled in a close game
before the Lady Pirates were able
to come out on top 23-21, win-
ning the match.
Senior Pam Ferris led ECU in
scoring with 20 kills on the night
while freshman Trish Monroe
rounded out the defense with a
team high 18 digs. Junior Heidi
Krug was able to set up most of
the kills for the Lady Pirates with
62 assists.
The following day ECU was
up against their second C-USA
opponent of the weekend, Hous-
ton. Despite giving a fierce effort,
the Lady Cougars were able to
defeat the Lady Pirates in three
games 30-21, 30-22, and 30-25.
Ferris once again led ECU
in kills with 11, while Monroe
managed 13 digs. Freshman Kim
Jefferson did not commit an
error as she led the Lady Pirates
in hitting percentage with a very
impressive .562.
ECU's record now stands at
13-9 overall, 4-S in C-USA play.

improve on their record as they

hurt but
to play
(AP) � Dan Morgan and
Julius Peppers both expect to
play this weekend against the
Minnesota Vikings, but it's
unclear how effective Carolina's
two defensive stars will be.
Morgan has a shoulder injury
and Peppers missed practice
Monday with a broken hand.
Both were injured in Carolina's
Oct. 16 win against Detroit and
used last weekend's bye to rest.
The extra rest means Morgan
won't miss a game. The line-

with a harness on his dislocated
"I'll be limited, but I'll just go

Morgan said he had the same

surgery to correct It. He said he's
trying to avoid an operation this
time around and is trying to treat
it with rehabilitation focused on
improving his arm strength and
range of motion.
Peppers, meanwhile, has
a thick black cast on his right
hand after breaking it against the
Lions. He returned to the game
but was only used in third-down
pass rushing situations. Until he
tests his hand in Wednesday's
practice, he said he wasn't sure
what he's capable of doing with
the cast.
"I haven't really tested ii cut
to see what I can do and what I
can't do he said.
"I am expecting to play like I
normally play
The one thing Peppers said
he won't do is use the cast as a
weapon and hit opposing play-
ers with it.
"It's not really that hard
he said.
"I would probably hurt myself
more if I try to whack somebody
with it
Also missing practice Monday
was running back DeShaun
Foster, who has been bothered
by a bruised knee and did not
play against the Lions. Quarter-
back Jake Delhomme was back
on the field after sitting out
last week. He was knocked out
of the Detroit game late in the
fourth quarter on a hit by Kenoy
where, baseball is still holding
out. Major-league general manag-
ers split 15-15 during their last
annual meeting on the idea of
using it even on a limited basis.
And not even a handful of ques-
tionable calls in recent weeks has
swayed Selig's stance.
"I think the human element
in baseball is very important
Selig said last week.
"I'm a football fan, too, and
I hate instant replay in the NFL.
Football games are taking four
hours. I don't know how we
could use It to improve the job
our umpires do
Even Angels manager Mike
Scioscla opposes the idea, despite
the controversial Game 2 call.
"I'm not in favor of replay at
all he said.
"There might be some replay
that can come in on a home
run, fair or foul, or fan interfer-
ence, but as far as plays around
the bases, or home plate, I don't
think replay is anything we
should bring into the game
Astros manager Phil Garner
said: "I can get as upset with the
umpires as anybody, but on bal-
ance, they do a terrific job. These
are our best umpires, and it's not
an exact science. I don't know that
you can make it an exact science
Cardinals fans have spent
the past 20 years cursing umpire
Don Denkinger, whose blown
call at first base allowed Kansas
City to win Game 6 of the 1985
World Series. Baltimore fans still
haven't gotten over Rich Garcia
overlooking a 12-year-old fan
turning Derek Jeter's fly ball into
a home run in the 1996 Ameri-
can League playoffs.
Instant replay could have
altered those plays, and the
course of sports history, but Major
League Baseball has resisted the
urge to go technical in this age
of instant messaging, iPods and
digital cameras.
"I'm a baseball person, and
my feeling is that the human
element of officiating is one of
the beauties of the game Marlins
TV analyst Tommy Hutton said.
"There have always been bad
calls, and we accepted them. Now,
there's more scrutiny because
we see the play 15 times on
SportsCenter, but that doesn't
mean we should change our
game. Even in football, I think it's
a distraction to see a guy peering
into a camera under a black cloth
like it's some X-rated movie
It was nearly 43 years ago,
on Dec. 7, 1963, that revolution-
ary CBS producer Tony Verna
changed the way America, and
eventually the world, watched
. Verna believed there was too
much dead"he during football
game broadcasts.
"You could eat a ham sand-
wich in the time it took Norm
Van Brocklin to get back to the
huddle he told reporters.
So, he came up with the idea
of reshowing plays immediately
after they happened. Until that
point, replays were available only
at half time and postgame. Verna
chose the Army-Navy football
game in Philadelphia as a guinea
pig because Roger Staubach was
the hottest quarterback around.
He spent three quarters
try ing to get it right, at one point
discovering an "I Love Lucy"
episode where he had hoped a
football play would be.
Finally, in the fourth quar-
ter, he got it to work and alerted
game announcer Lindsey Nelson,
"Here it comes Viewers got an
immediate second look at Army
quarterback Rollie Stichweh's 1-
yard touchdown.
"This is not live Nelson
screamed into the microphone.
"Ladies and gentlemen, Army
has not scored again
Voila. Instant replay.
