SGA toe
around campus in order to reduce acts of violence throughout campus.
Safety walk points out danger zones
Police, students, faculty
work to identify safety risks
ZACK HILL
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
In an attempt to reduce the
number of times students have to
see those ECU Alert boxes pop up
on computer screens with a report
of an assault or robbery, the SGA
held its annual Safety Walk at 6:45
p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 2.
About 30 students, faculty
and administration representa-
tives met In front of West End
Dining Hall and split up Into four
groups to cover different parts of
the ECU campus and point out
potentially dangerous spots.
"We definitely don't want
students and faculty to feel
unsafe said Maurice Griffin,
SGA chief of staff.
One group was taken by bus
to College Hill while the other
three groups divided up the main
campus on foot. ECU police offi-
cers accompanied several of the
groups along with SGA represen-
tatives and officers.
The walk took place at night
to better illustrate to participants
how dangerous certain areas
can be.
"Our biggest concerns are in
reference to lighting that makes
people feel uncomfortable said
Robert Stroud, ECU police chief.
Many I ights across the campus
were either dim or burnt out
completely, providing dark areas
for assailants to hide. Shrubs
and overgrown trees also make
excellent cover for potential
criminals.
"That, no matter what, should
not be out said Aaron l.ucier,
associate director of campus
living, pointing to a burnt out
flood light above the entrance to
the cashier's office.
"If you can't sec my face at
five or 10 feet, that's a problem
l.ucier said.
l.ucier emphasized that safe
lighting does not have to be
overpowering.
"You don't have to make it look
bad, it doesn't have to be lit up like
a Christmas tree l.ucier said.
Administrative officials con-
trolling the budget were invited
in an attempt to raise awareness
and the amount of funds devoted
to safety measures.
"We want to get the people
here who can actually get the
work done said Kevin Stormer,
junior nursing major and SGA
director of campus safety.
Stormer is also a member of
the ECU Police Department.
"We want to cover the main
areas students and faculty walk
through on the weekend or at
night Stormer said.
Walkers were also notified
of the locations of emergency
phones and locations were sug-
gested for the installment of more
phones in the future.
Participants were given cards
to fill out in order to list places
they felt could be potentially
unsafe. The cards will become
part of a report detailing the
problem areas.
SGA President and senior mar-
keting major M. Cole Jones sees
the walk as an opportunity for
students to voice their concerns.
"I think it is Important for
students to be involved in the
process because they are the ones
whose safety really matters said
Jones.

Matt Cohen, senior political
science major, is running against
incumbent Mayor, Don I'arrott,
and another challenger, Hob
Schneider, for the office of mayor
of Greenville.
Throughout his entire cam-
paign, Cohen has been adamant
about mobilizing the student
vote.
"We have rights in this com-
munity to vote and participate
and more importantly wc have
the responsibility to vote said
Cohen.
"I can't overemphasize
that
Cohen's biggest messages
have been about getting stu-
dents into local government,
improving the environment,
gaining sustainable economic
growth and helping renovate
poor neighborhoods. He wants
to address the issue of runoff
water from streets and parking
lots that lead to pollutants in
the local water source. There is a

SGA Senate prepares for student fee increases

NEWS EDITOR
The SGA Senate met yesterday
evening to examine which stu-
dent services would need greater
funding through student fees.
Among the institutions
requesting an increase were
Mendenhall Student Center, ;
Information Technology Com-
puting Services, ECU Transit, (
Recreational Services, Athletics j
and Adult Commuter Services. �
All of these items and more (
will be discussed heavily on Nov.
28 when the senate meets to
finalize their proposals for this
fiscal year. SGA Senate President
Benjamin Wyche called on senate
members to make every effort to
attend this meeting or at least
send a representative.
"This is the heart of what you
do as a senator said Wyche.
SGA Chief of Staff Maurice
Griffin spoke about the ITCS
funding and how it would not
hurt students too much to make
the $11 increase he suggested. He
said that would only come out to

"Currently, we have the

said Griffin.
"Even after we would still
have the lowest
Transit's increases will
amount to a proposed $28 in
order to pay for more buses
and rising fuel costs that have
left them close to the red zone
fiscally. They are also inter-
ested in moving to hybrid buses
and blo-diesel buses. However,
these would be expensive to
purchase. Hybrid buses would
cost $480,000 per bus.
Motion failed with SB ft-1, a
bill to move next week's meeting
to Dowdy-Flcklen Stadium's club
seats. The athletic department
invited senators to hold their meet-
ing there and listen to a presenta-
tion. However, all but two senators
opposed this. Senators were wary
of the athletic department trying
to cajole the senate Into increasing
their funding so shortly before
budget submissions. The senate
agreed lo maintain the normal
meeting arrangement.
"They the athletic depart-
ment! can come to us and talk to
us said Rcgina Twine, student
welfare committee chair.
The senate passed senate reso-
lution 6-1, a recommendation to
make used textbooks cheaper. The
average student spends somewhere
around $900 per year on books.

raiser all the way.
Benefits are to be dis-
persed to victims in need
from all major hurricanes this
year, Wllma, Ophelia, Rita
and Katrlna.
More than 30 booths at

"Think-In: Teaching with
Technology 2005" took place last
Wednesday In the Mendenhall
Cireat Rooms from 10 a.m. - 2
p.m. ECU faculty and staff pre-
sented the ways they are using
technology in the school envi-
ronment
Representatives in more than
30 booths were on hand with
laptops and posters to display
how they are using technology
as a part of their job.
The fair focused on three
tracks - social use of technol-
ogy, effective and efficient use
of technology and innovative
use of technology. Social use
involved developing learning
communities in online classes.
Effective and efficient use was
about achieving successful learn-
ing objectives and increasing effi-
ciency. Innovative use focused
on using new technologies to
achieve learning objectives.
Students had a chance to win
door prizes, as others offered
their evaluations on the effective-
ness of the fair in presenting new
ideas as well as suggestions to
improve the fair in the future.
"It's a faculty development
opportunity with people present-
ing Ideas, using technology and
sharing what they're using said
Ginny Sconiers, project director
for academic outreach.
"Learning from each other is
part of the job
Greg Hecimovich, assistant
professor of English, was on
hand showing how he is using
podcasting to give supplemental
Information about the Victorian-
era literature he teaches.
"The actual literature kind
of teaches itself, but I use tech-
nology to bring life to the back-
ground said Hecimovich.
Michael Dixon, instructional
technology consultant, is also
using podcasting to beef up the
material made accessible online.
He said newer innovations are
lessening the distance between
the classroom and the Internet.
"Now you can get a $20
microphone, free audio software,
record the lecture and create
a feed to put It online said
Dixon.
"It's easy, quick and can work
on any platform
Erich Connell, assistant pro-
fessor of construction manage-
ment, created a virtual classroom
for his students with schools in
Arizona, Texas and Oklahoma
connected via video and audio.
Connell said he thinks stu-
dents gained from being able to
communicate ideas and work on
projects with schools in other
states.
"We were learning how dif-
ferent regions of the nation
were using technology said
Connell.
"Technology is expanding
the classroom to anywhere in
the world
Campus resources such as
Blackboard, Information Tech-
nology and Computing Services
and the Technology Advance-
ment Center show how integral
technology is to the everyday

Local
Executions In NC early In the
morning
RALEIGH, NC (AP) - Many states
execute convicted killers in the
evenings. North Carolina, which
has three upcoming executions
scheduled, waits until 2 a.m.
Opponents of the death penalty say
they believe the time was chosen
to deter their presence and lessen
publicity.
Prison officials say 2 a.m. is the
best time logistically, legally and for
security.
"It's when the prison is most quiet
said Pamela Walker, a spokeswoman
for the state Department of Correction.
Of the 10 states that have performed
83 percent of the country's executions
since 1976, only North Carolina and
Missouri hold executions between
midnight and early morning. States
such as Texas, Virginia, Oklahoma
and Florida, all in the top five in
the number of executions, conduct
executions between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.
For years, Oklahoma held executions
at midnight, said Jerry Massle, a
spokesman with the Oklahoma
Department of Corrections. The state
switched the time to 6 p.m. In 2003
to make life easier for the prison staff
and others.
"It made for a shorter day. It also
was more convenient for the family
members of the victims. If they
couldn't afford a hotel, that's a long
drive back in the middle of the night
Massie said.
Prison officials in Texas, which has
accounted for 35 percent of all U.S.
executions since 1976, switched to 6
p.m. executions in 1995. The change
was made in part so that inmates'
lawyers could file last-minute appeals
while the courts were still open.
"Not only is it easier on the staff,
it Is easier for the attorneys said
Texas prison system spokeswoman
Michelle Lyons.
Under North Carolina state law, prison
officials have to schedule executions
within a 30-day period that starts one
month after notice that an inmate's
appeals have been exhausted. Once
a date is chosen, state law requires
that the inmate be executed within
that 24-hour period.
The state law creates another reason
to schedule executions earty in the
24-hour time period, said Walker.
There is still time to carry out the
sentence even If there Is a delay for
legal or other reasons.
Prison officials also are reluctant
to move the execution closer to
midnight because that would give the
Inmate less time to spend with family.
Inmates can visit with relatives from
10 a.m. to 11 p.m. on the day before
the execution. Those 13 hours are
the first and last times a prisoner can
touch relatives since he or she arrived
on death row.
That would be two less hours that they
would be able to visit" Walker said.
National
Manhunt for Texas death row
Inmate ends outside a Louisiana
liquor store
HOUSTON (AP) - A convicted double-
murderer who spent three days on
the run after slipping away from a
Houston jail was recaptured some
200 miles away drunk and talking on
a pay phone.
Police acting on a tip Sunday found
Charles Victor Thompson, 35,
standing outside a liquor store in
Shreveport, La said Harris County
Sheriffs Lt. John Martin.
"You know who I am Thompson
told officers when asked his name.
Asked again, he identified himself
as Charles Thompson, Martin said.
Police said Thompson was too drunk
to be Interrogated Sunday night.
The arrest ended a massive manhunt
for Thompson, who was convicted In
1999 for the shooting deaths a year
earlier of his ex-girtfriend, Dennise
Hayslip, 39, and her new boyfriend,
Darren Keith Cain, 30.
Shreveport city Jail Supervisor Barry
Newton said Thompson had been
booked on charges of being a fugitive
from the U.S. Marshals Service and
a fugitive from Harris County. He
was scheduled to appear before a
magistrate Monday In Shreveport
Thompson was sentenced to death
Oct. 28 and was being held In
the county jail until he could be
transferred to a prison in Livingston,
about 75 miles to the northeast.
Thompson escaped from custody
Thursday using a smuggled set of
clothes and a fake identification
badge to get past guards. His escape
resulted from "multiple errors" by jail
personnel, Martin has said.
Marshals designated Thompson a
federal fugitive In order to use Its
resources to find him and offered
a $10,000 reward for his capture.
Jurors and victims' relatives feared
for their safety.
When he was arrested, Thompson
had a bicycle, but it was unclear how
he got to Shreveport, Martin said.
Authorities did not know who he was
talking to on the phone.
Even though Thompson's arrest was
very Important, It was only a small
part of the ongoing investigation
Into how he managed to escape the
county jail, said Steve Tiller with the
U.S. Marshals Service.
On Thursday afternoon, Thompson
was taken to a room in the jail for
a meeting with his attorney. The
visitor, however, was not Thompson's
attorney of record, Terrence Gaiser,
although investigators have
determined the other person was
an attorney, Martin said. His name
has not been released because he
Is considered a witness.
After the attorney left, Thompson was
alone In the room and he managed to
remove his handcuffs and his bright
orange prison jumpsuit and put on a
dark blue shirt, khaki pants and white
tennis shoes. Authorities believe
those were the clothes Thompson
wore during his sentencing and say
he somehow smuggled them back
to his cell.
Wearing his new outfit, Thompson
left the prisoner's booth in the visiting
room and waved a fake ID badge
that wasn't scrutinized as he passed
at least four jail employees at work
stations. Thompson was eventually let
into the jail's visitor's lobby and from
there he walked out of the building
and Into the street.
Authorities think somebody helped
him escape, Martin said. "We do
think that people helped him If for
no other reason than we found his
clothes back behind another jail
facility he said.
World
Family of Palestinian boy killed
by Israeli soldiers donates his
organs to Israeli patients
PETAH TIKVAH, Israel (AP) - The
parents of a Palestinian boy shot by
Israeli soldiers donated his organs
to three Israeli children waiting for
transplants.
Ismail Khatib said the decision to
donate his son Ahmed's organs
Sunday was rooted in his memories
of his brother, who died at age 24
while waiting for a liver transplant, and
in his family's desire to help others
regardless of their nationality.
"I don't mind seeing the organs in
the body of an Israeli or a Palestinian.
In our religion, God allows us to
give organs to another person and
It doesn't matter who the person
is Khatib said. He added that he
hoped the donation would send a
message of peace to Israelis and
Palestinians.
Ahmed, 12 was shot by Israeli soldiers
Thursday while they were conducting
a raid in the West Bank town of
Jenln. The soldiers said the boy was
carrying a toy rifle and they mistook
him for a militant.
Ahmed died of his wounds late
Saturday, and on Sunday, three Israeli
girls two Jewish and the other Druse
underwent surgery to receive his
lungs, heart and liver.
The father of 12-year-old Samah
Gadban, who had been waiting five
years for a heart, called the donation
a "gesture of love Riad Gadban
spoke as he juggled phone calls in a
waiting room at Schneider Children's
Medical Center in the Israeli town of
Petah Tikvah. Samah's mother sat by
her bed, holding her hand.
Khatib said he hoped to meet the
recipients of his son's organs.
The most important thing is that I see
the person who received the organs,
to see him alive
Gadban said he will invite Khatib and
his family to a party for Samah when
she leaves the hospital.
"I want to thank him and his family.
With their gift, I would like for them
to think that my daughter is their
daughter Gadban said.
The national transplant center
reported that a 14-year-old Jewish
girl received Ahmed's lungs and a
7-month-old giri underwent surgery
Sunday evening to receive his liver.
Israel has a chronic shortage of donor
organs that many medical officials
attribute to Jewish religious taboos
against such donations.

Band performs in Greenville
Christian band has plans
to also appeal to non-

STAFF WRITER
David Crowder Band per-
formed to a sold-out audience last
Wednesday night at the Greenville
Convention Center. Those who
attended the concert left with
their ears ringing, ecstatic from
the elevating lyrics David Crowder
Band sang all night.
"There is already enough
negative music in the world, and
it's nice to hear something differ-
ent said Burton Morris, junior
communication major.
"Something that is uplifting
obviously makes me have a better
outlook on life and on class
Their tour, A Collision, which
is also the name- of their new
album, featured opening bands
Shane and Shane alongside
Robbie Seay Band.
David Crowder Band
has been nominated for three
Grammy Awards this year and
will be touring with Grammy
Award winners Third Day In
spring 2006.
They have previously toured
with Christian music artists
Mercy Me, famous for their
chart-topping song "1 Can Only
Imagine which earned its spot
on the Billboard Top 200 charts
along with hits from Justin Tim-
berlake and Jennifer Lopez.
Jason Solley, lead guitarist
and vocalist from David Crowder
Hand, said their main goal is to
make their music appealing not
just for Christians but also for
non-believers. The music must
make sense in order for non-
Christians to understand it as
well, Solley said. Then again,
music is the universal language,
Solley said. As long as people get
the message from our lyrics, that
is what matters.
Their song titled, "A Beautiful

Collision said "So courageous
until now, fumbling and scared,
so afraid you'll find me out, alone
here, with my doubt
This song brings God to a
practical surface by explaining
why people have every reason to
reveal who they are, because one
way or another God will "collide"
with them at their weakest point,
revealing their true meaning for
life on earth.
Nearly 25 churches from
around Greenville helped orga-
nize the concert. The goal of the
concert was to reach youth from
around Greenville, said Cory Rag-
land, planner of the event.
David Crowder Band has its
own unique style, impossible to
fit into just one category. They
played everything from upbeat
rock, to rock opera, a little bit of
funkhip hop and even some blue
grass, which lead singer David
Crowder said was only neces-
sary since they were in North
Carolina. Their wide range of
music can be found on their new
album.
"I like the variety because it's
different, it's fun, it's energetic
and it's upbeat said Lindsey
Duvall, senior family and com-
munity service major.
"Their music made me want
to dance. Shoot, they're also my
home boys because they're from
Texas, my home state
The six-member band started
their career while attending college
at Baylor University in Waco, Texas.
Some of the band members were
not even in college yet, so Crowder
persisted to formulate a kind of
catchy music they could share with
crowds once they graduated.
Donnie Luper, co-planner,
said they had been planning the
concert for nearly five years. Last
year, Chris Tomlin performed at
the convention center. This year,
Luper was very excited to have
David Crowder Band come.
Before the concert, Luper said
he was looking for God's presence
to touch the lives of each youth
and adult.
"It's been a long time since
I've been in a big group of wor-
shippers in a concert and it
was nice to hear Crowder speak
so openly, worshiping God in
front of the crowd said Jessica
Ives, junior psychology major
and member of ECU Campus
Crusade.
The band almost had to
cancel their concert because of
the recent death of their pastor,
Kyle Lake, of University Baptist
Church in Waco, Texas. Lake,
33, was electrocuted Sunday
Oct. 30 while reaching to adjust
the microphone during a church
baptism.
Though the David Crowder
Band mourns the loss of Lake,
they chose to make the best
of this situation. That's what
Lake would have wanted, said
Crowder.
During the concert, Crowder
said with a loud, firm voice,
"death is not the end of it all
The crowd erupted in cheers and
applause. Crowder explained
they will not let what happened
to their pastor keep them from
reaching out through performing
concerts and touching the lives of
young adults.
David Crowder Band began
their music career at University
Baptist Church singing praise
and worship songs on Sunday
mornings.
Some concertgoers said their
favorite part of the night was
hearing the band rock out with
Shane and Shane and the Robbie
Seay Band during their encore.
"I liked the lyrics of Shane
and Shane the best said Tim
Grigg, senior social work major.
"They were all positive, noth-
ing they sang about was about
drama. Most people sing about
how their life sucks, but Shane
and Shane just praise God and
sing about what's important

Our View
Identity theft not
to be taken lightly
For those of you who haven't noticed, technology has
been and will continue to advance over the years. When
many of us were growing up, computers were just being
created and the Ipod wasn't even a thought in anyone's
imagination. Now, in a day and age in which pretty much
our entire lives revolve around technology, specifically
the Internet or online databases, this opens up an entire
new world of crime to those looking to create trouble.
Identity theft is on the rise, and no matter how many
anti-virus, anti-spam or spy ware programs are created,
people can and will still find ways to hack into other
people's lives. This is a serious matter, not just some-
thing seen in movies such as The Net. As you might
have seen, an e-mail was sent out across campus a
short while ago announcing that there was an e-mail
hacker posing as an Ebay representative, asking for
people to resubmit their personal Information and create
a new account, therefore allowing this thief access to
everything from your name and address to your credit
card or bank account number. This may seem like
common sense to many of you, but keep in mind that it's
never completely safe to dish out personal information
online. Last year, students at George Mason University
in Virginia were victims of identity theft after a hacker
broke into the university's mainframe and stole many
students' social security numbers.
Bewarethough because identrtytheftdoesntjustoccur
online. Thieves can rummage through garbage to find
credit card receipts or go through your mall.
How can you protect yourself?
If you're worried about someone else stealing your
credit card Information and charging money to your
account various credit card companies offer a sort of
credit monitoring program. For example, your Assistant
Features Editor drove home to Maryland and had to pay
for gas in North Carolina Virginia and in Maryland. Within
two hours of the last purchase, her credit card company
had called to alert her of suspicious activity.
More safety tips include never giving out personal
information online to any site which isn't secure. Also,
if you do your banking or pay your bills online, create a
password containing both letters and numbers - create
a code which would not be easy for any acquaintance
to guess. When bills are paid off, it's wise to put all of
your receipts through a shredding machine, or at least
tear them up into small pieces which would be difficult
to place back together.
If you or someone you know has become a victim of
identity theft, here's what to do. If your credit card has
been illegally charged, call your credit card provider,
explain what happened and close your account imme-
diately. The same goes for your bank account If you
suspect your social security number, driver's license
or any other form of identification is stolen, contact the
government agency in which your ID was issued. You
can fill out forms to cancel the stolen document(s) and
apply for new forms of ID.

Pirate Rant
Opinion Columnist
You would think it would be better by now
'Nothing has changed'
TONY MCKEE
CONSERVATIVE CORNER
I wrote a column in May of
2004 on the fact that courtesy
and kindness were on their
deathbed here at ECU. Let's
revisit that column. This is some
of what I wrote:
"Have you walked into a bath-
room recently, male or female, and
seen the disgusting messes left by
what I had at first assumed to be
escaped farm animals? The urine
on the floor, urinals and toilets
by "badly aimed" plumbing - the
toilets clogged with everything from
personal hygiene products to toilet
paper to reports with bad grades.
The paper towels strewn all over the
place even though the trash can is in
plain sight. The sinks and mirrors
covered in God only knows what.
Have you seen any of that? Now
think about having to clean that up
every day, five days a week, every
week school is in session.
Have you thanked any of the
janitorial staff recently for giving
you a clean place to plant your butt
and take care of business? Why
not? They work hard to clean up
after the slobs among us, and they
do a good job. Would you want to
do what they do?
How about the people who
pick up the litter that's always is
floating around campus? Have you
thanked them recently for keep-
ing the campus clean? Have you
said "hello" or in some small way
acknowledged that they are alive?
From what I have seen, the answer
is a resounding "Whatpeople?"
What about the people who
prepare the food we eat? Granted,
some of it has the taste of well,
something, but that doesn't matter.
When was the last time you thanked
one of the servers, or cooks, for the
job they are doing? When was the
last time some of you even said any-
thing to them, except to complain
about something?
And then there are the cashiers.
Can you think of a more frustrat-
ing job? They stand for hours on
end, watching all that money that
they can't keep going through their
fingers. And what do they get for
their efforts? Thousands of self
absorbed, arrogant snobs who can't
be bothered to say hello or smile or
look at them
In the 18 months since that
column was printed, nothing
has changed. If anything, things
appear to have gotten worse.
The vast majority of students
(and faculty) that I have seen in
the past few months still ignore
the support staff, or treat them
like some vile thing they found
on the bottom of their shoe.
Some examples I have personally
witnessed, just on campus:
1. I counted 32 (out of
57) students and faculty going
through a cashier's line that did
not say one word to her, even
though she greeted everyone.
This happened in the span of
about 20 minutes.
2. I lost track of the number of
times I saw someone use a toilet or
urinal and leave it without flush-
ing. Perhaps not surprisingly, the
vast majority of these individuals
didn't bother to wash their hands
either. "High 5" anyone?
3. I have watched countless
supposedly intelligent people
cross in front of moving lawn
mowers instead of waiting for
them to pass. In each instance
the person on the mower had
to stop in order to avoid these
geniuses and to let them pass.
Oh yeah, each time the students
were, obviously, walking on the
grass and not the sidewalk.
4. Numerous times I have
been witness to, and commented
on, the lack of courtesy and
common sense of people who
deliberately walk out in front of
moving cars, buses, bicycles and
motorcycles. I especially like the
ones who stop in the middle of
traffic, or block commuter buses,
to drop off or collect their sweet-
ies. Interestingly enough, the
majority of the people I have seen
doing this have been women.
Do you think that means any-
thing?
Then there are the people
who deliberately put their hands
on just-cleaned windows and
doors, who drop trash on the
ground after someone has picked
it up and keep walking, forcing
maintenance and janitorial staff
to move out of the way instead of
making room for them.
I could go on, but why
bother? Everyone gets the idea,
or should - ECU appears to be
populated by a bunch of rude,
arrogant, insensitive jerks.
ECU is already known as
"EZU "Party Central" and sev-
eral other less colorful names.
Perhaps we should add self-cen-
tered, rude and stuck up to those
names as well.
1 like the Sonic Plaza and the columns there. If people
are getting off the bus, please let them get off before
you push your way on and look like an a. I don't like
hearing children in the library either, but at least I know
that these people are trying to better themselves so my
future tax dollars won't have to support that crying
child, and they are much less obtrusive than people
on the phone.
Anyone else out there run a student organization and
wishes they were just a member again? If you are please
raise your hand!
Don't you think it's sad that ECU is known for its party-
ing more than its academics? Not everyone came here
to drink and act a fool. Some people actually want to
learn.
It really doesn't matter the size of the girl, but the size
of her heart.
A friend is someone you can depend on no matter
what - a freeloader is someone who only calls when
they need a ride.
Why are people still wearing shorts and a hoodie - that
kind of defeats the purpose of the cold weather if you're
going to keep dressing like it's still summer time.
I can't believe November is already here and before you
know it the semester will be over - how many of you are
actually going to pass your courses though?
The10 massages in the health center are delectable. Go
get one or seven, you'll thank me for it someday.
1 don't go to class to impress you or to be stylish -1 go
to class to learn. Why do you care if I wear my paja-
mas? P.S. not everyone can afford nice clothes because
(deep breath) some of us actually do pay for our own
education.
Instead of just canceling class professor, you didn't
show up, sent in your grad student with a IS minute
video and then let him dismiss us. That was completely
pointless.
Thank you for being open so late, Galley, because a
break from work for munchies is exactly what was
needed at 12 a.m.
Halloween consisted of guys chilling on the sidewalk
watching all the girls walk by and trying to take them
home. Did that make anyone else feel uncomfortable?
We're all here for the same basic reasons -1 should never
feel like I am on a runway when I am simply walking to
class, so If I show up in my PJ's that is OK.
How come the ECU Adventure Center has to cancel
super fun adventure trips because there aren't enough
Ceople who sign up? The trips are awesome and is total
ull that out of 25,000 students, there aren't six who
want to go and do something cool on a weekend. Check
it out and go sign up people!
The movie theater does not offer a student discount.
Please stop complaining to employees about this we
have no control over the price of tickets or the 99-cent
terminal fee.
To Jennifer Hobbs, the person who edits the pirate rants.
I guess you're right - students at ECU don't want to hear
about girls getting harassed while they are jogging in town.
I guess the pirate rants about cute guys in camouflage or
the greatness of the Grateful Dead are more Important.
i To the student running for mayor.

In My Opinion
(KRT) � I'm in my fourth
year teaching a seminar at the
University of Pennsylvania on
the media's role in American
society, and here's the astonish-
ing thing: Students this semester
bring up subjects we didn't talk
about a few short years ago.
Blogging. Jon Stewart.
Whether newspapers should
charge for content on the Inter-
net. These issues didn't escape
the attention of just me, a
middle-age prof still yearning for
the days of Edward R. Murrow.
Not too long ago, they weren't
on the radar screens of smart Ivy
League kids, either.
Now they are an integral part
of the media landscape - until
the next new thing comes along.
That is how swiftly, profoundly
and unpredictably the business
of daily journalism is changing.
Reacting to that unpredict-
ability has caused many news-
papers, Including this one, to
reduce their staffs dramatically in
the belief that eliminating jour-
nalists will somehow improve
journalism.
The logic of this escapes me.
I cling to a simple formula
I devised years ago to describe
what a good newspaper ought
to do: Inform, reflect, crusade,
connect. Over nearly three
decades in journalism, I've
been privileged to inform read-
ers with news from around the
world, reflect on the great issues
and events of our time, and cru-
sade against social ills, economic
injustice and truly annoying
politicians. (Not to mention
report on everything from a
royal wedding to a nudist camp,
where I learned to conduct an
interview keeping my eyes on
the person's face.)
Most satisfying has been the
chance to connect with ordinary
people, especially in thelast five
years of writing these columns.
Worse than the worst criti-
cism thrown my way - some of
it ridiculously mean is the fear
of an empty voice mailbox on
a Monday morning. We colum-
nists thrive on feedback. Not just
because we hate to be ignored,
but because readers fuel our best
work.
When I went on a campaign
in 2003 to save federal funding
for AmeriCorps, the successful
national service program whose
only sin was to be born during
the Clinton administration, an
outpouring from readers all over
the country enhanced my efforts.
Their stories provided irrefutable
evidence of the need to keep the
program alive. I was just their
conduit.
When Ronald Reagan's death
prompted me to write about
my late mother's struggle with
Alzheimer's disease, readers over-
whelmed me with heartbreaking,
heroic tales of their own.
Some e-mails were so full of
pain, I had to walk away from
my computer. They left me even
more grateful for the excellent
care my mother received; I
was moved to push harder for
changes in how we deal with
a fatal disease that will affect
ever more of us in a graying
America.
As I reluctantly close this
column, I hope that you who
have kept me honest over the
years, and kept me grounded,
will continue the conversation
we started. Press for reforms in
our electoral system to ensure
that voting is free, fair and avail-
able to everyone, especially
the young. While you're at it,
develop a First Vote ritual in your
(
own community to honor those
casting ballots for the first time,
and invite them into a process
they have a duty to embrace and
improve.
The president and Congress
missed a stellar opportunity
after the 911 terrorist attacks to
institute universal community
and military service for every
American, providing help for
the needy, a boost for the armed
forces, and a sense of genera-
tional cohesion we haven't had
since my dad fought in World
War II. We need it even more
now. Push for it.
When we debate abortion
and marriage and gay rights, let
moderation and common sense
be heard just as loudly as the
uncompromising shrillness from
the extremes. The middle ground
Is common ground for most
Americans, and our national
politics need to reflect that.
And for goodness' sake, let's
act like a nation that truly values
Its children, in the halls of power,
where budgets are created and
policies set, but also in our
homes. Have family dinner. Take
the TV and computer out of the
kids' rooms. Pay attention to
what young people are saying.
I've wanted to be a journal-
ist ever since the seventh grade,
when I saw reruns of Murrow's
unforgettable broadcasts. (And
this was before George Clooney
entered the picture.) For a kid
from the Bronx who grew up
knowing nobody famous, my job
has given me unbelievable access
to those who drive our civic and
political life.
Best of all has been what I've
learned from the greatest col-
leagues one can ever ask for, and
a reading public second to none.
Thanks.
To the guy who says that he is our friend but keeps
making up excuses on why he can't hang out with us - it's
OK you're going to need us one day and we won't be there
to hang out with you. We call you a friend for a reason so
try to start acting like one. No more excuses!
Do you ever feel like peopie are staring at you when
you walk through Wright Plaza? Is there something
hanging out of my nose? Do I have toilet paper stuck
to my shoe?
It is really sad when a girl can't get some exercise in this
town without being harassed by guys who think that
women like feeling degraded and uncomfortable. The
sad part is that guys usually only have the balls to yell
at you when in packs, so you're outnumbered. Ladies,
am I the only one that feels this way?
OK, 1 admit it. 1 have a man-crush on Skip Holtz.
Its2005,toaselectfew,thel980scalWtheywamtheirhairl
Guys I am up the creek without a paddle. My girlfriend
found out it was her sister's earring. Please help me. I
love my girlfriend so much, I can't lose her.
Bring back the Ninjas that rolled out and attacked us
near the mall! You, swinging with your "swords That
should be a weekly ritual for you guys!
I hate when people e-mail me asking if we have an
exam tomorrow but don't even bother to say what
class they're in.
To everyone who keeps mentioning putting parking decks
in Greenville you can't. The ground is too wet and the
parking deck will sink! So no more whining about why
we aren't spending money on parking decks!
How come you seem to find the perfect guy, and yet
he is always taken?
The skit done by the Black Student Union did not offend
me, I thought it was hilarious.
Skater boys, you make me happy!
Tall women need tall men little girls back off before
I step on you!
What happened to Friends Eat Free Fridays? Where has
that free meal gone? I used to rant to friends and family
about ECU'S dinning policy of free lunch for friends,
but now it is gone.
If your boyfriend went to Iraq, don't tell me you're single
so I'll date you while he's gone.
Tonight I didn't have enough money to pay for my food
at The Galley and the guy behind me insisted to just put
the rest on his decline. Thanks a lot man, you're one of
the only truly kind people I have met this year.
To all boys who go out of their way to approach a girl,
make the first move, take your number, proceed to hang
out with you for a month, then let you know that their
just not "ready" for a girlfriend. You should have just left
us alone to begin with we were better off that way.
If you are that concerned about a car hitting you, then
maybe you should not walk out in front of us!
Flu shots rule! Love, Dr. Mom

'Citizen Kane' (1941)
I'm going to take this time to tell you
about one of my favorite movies in the
history of motion pictures. This Orson
Welles film is based on the life of
newspaper mogul William Randolph
Hearst and follows the highs and
lows of main character Charles Foster
Kane's life. The film begins with the
death of Kane and we see that his
last spoken word before his death
was "rosebud
The movie then goes on to explore
who or what rosebud is, through
highlighting the extravagant lifestyle
of Kane Witness the highs of Irving
the rich life as Charles Foster Kane's
newspaper empire grows and the
loneliness that ensues after Kane
loses his bid for New York governor.
This Oscar-winning movie has been
called one of the best movies of
all time by many more esteemed

either way, It's an amazing movie and
I'd recommend it to anyone interested
in journalism or politics.

Interesting ECU student activities
Some of the stupid

AMANDA WINAR
STAFF WRITER
Skinny dipping, squirrel
fishing, egg eating, cross dress-
ing, keg racing, milk chugging,
April fooling, hair shaving - even
highway streaking. Sounds like
you might have just joined the
circus. But really, you've just
entered the "Day in the life of
a college student.
Sure students are here at
ECU to learn about the schol-
arly aspects of life, yet they are
also in college to experience life.
According to Siddhartha, aka
Buddha, "True wisdom can only
be obtained through experience
Well Buddha, college students are
well on their way to some form
of wisdom then.
With classes, work and extra-
curricular activities, it wouldn't
seem like there is much time for
goofing off. Yet being in college
most of the time means less
responsibility, more alcohol and
more time to become un-bored.
Freshman Jesse Cornet said
that if you are bored in college,
you have a problem.
"There are so many things
to do in college it's insane.
Living in the dorms always
gives us plenty of stupid ideas
that we actually won't get in
trouble for by our parents
Cornet said just last week
she was sitting on the couch

you can, hoping to still be able

she ended up with marshmallow

in college was, nursing student
Senior Melissa Blakemore replied
"Ha, bought a credit card This is
quite true in the world of broke
college students, but Blakemore
has also been known to swan

Busta Blindauer, also a senior

jumping into bushes, there have
been plenty of things to keep
her occupied, especially when
living in the dorms. She said
one day they froze a huge block
of ice in the tiny dorm fridges
and went sliding down the hills
with it. When it rained they
would go mud sliding down
the hill outside of downtown

things to do but says "occasion-

silly stuff just for fun. That's
what college is about. I won't

Along with silly stunts to
keep you occupied, there are tons
of other things college students
do to keep themselves occupied.

to send in their crazy pranks,
wild nights and silly circum-

One student from Western Caro-
lina sent in a story about pranks.
He explained it was tradition
to play pranks on people, yet
sometimes pranks turn into wars
and can severely mess things
up in your life. He explained

Group participates in
grueling outdoor workout
KRISTIN DAY
SENIOR WRITER
Kristin Day, Kristin Murnane and their trainer enjoyed sit-ups outside.
In case you missed it, Kristin
M. and 1 struggled through our
weekly group workout in the
middle of campus for all to watch.
And while you probably
thought there was a new tree-
worshipping cult on campus,
we soon realized that machines
and a track were not an absolute
necessity for a workout In fact,
this past week was the most dif-
ficult session yet.
After all the sprinting,
crunching, squatting and push-
ing, we were told there was only
one more exercise left and we
were relieved that the day had
gone so quickly and it would
soon be over.
So we ran to the Science and
Technology building. Then we
ran up the steps - three times.
Ok, it wasn't as bad as it
sounds. We ran up one flight
across to the other set of stairs,
jogged down and then over to
where we began. Then we did the
same with two flights and again
with five. Then I spent five min-
utes trying to catch my breath
at the top and realized I really
should have taken some group
fitness classes during the week.
The group fitness classes
are a great way to make you
go to the gym, especially for
someone like me whose sched-
ule is insanely busy. Having a
specific time that I have to be
in the gym and not being able
to leave for the next hour is the
only way I can make those three
extra hours of exercise that are
recommended each week outside
of out personal training sessions.
So far I've taken aqua fitness
and cycling.
Surprisingly, water aerobics
is always offered to students for
free and there is a relatively small
turnout so it's easy to keep up.
I'll admit that it was a little
awkward trying to do aerobics
under water, but the great thing
about it is you don't feel like
you're doing anything when
you actually are. I'm still not
sure if you even sweat or not.
But my advice for the girls is to
wear some supportive swimwear.
Trust me.
My favorite class at this point
is cycling. The water is great, but
I like to know that I've done
something beneficial afterward.
As soon as I stepped off the bike I
knew I was going to be sore.
As for the "competition
I'm stuck in the losing-size-not-
weight phase, which is frustrat-
ing, but I'm still the only one
who has taken fitness classes and
showed up to every group work-
out. Catch up guys. I guess it is
obvious who is dedicated.

Rebel 48: Student art show
Gospel choir is singing praises
Rebel 48 staff members Kyle Jackson, Jessica Duensing, Matthew Reese and Katie McCabe.
The ECU Gospel Choir is dedicated to serving ECU and Greenville.

The Rebel 48 show will be open to the public at Emerge Gallery now through Nov. 26.
Uplifting, evangelistic and
powerful are just a few of the
words that describe gospel music.
Entertainment and worship
intertwine to create a unique way
for Christians to spread the good
news. A first-hand experience of
gospel music is offered through
the ECU Gospel Choir.
In 1978 students Interested in
gospel music formed a small choral
ensemble. The ensemble gradu-
ally turned into the full-fledged
choir that it Is today, which
consists of about 86 students.
"The only criteria to be a
member is to be an ECU student,
and have an interest in learning
about gospel music as well as per-
formance techniques said Alicia
Williams, senior psychology
major and president of ECUGC.
The only required tryouts
are for those students interested
in being part of the Praise Team.
The Praise Team is a small ensem-
ble of students who set the atmo-
sphere for a service by getting the
crowd involved in praising God.
The ECUGC performs on
campus as well as at various
churches, events and schools
throughout the community. On
Nov. 15 at 7 p.m. they will be
performing their fall concert in
Wright Auditorium. This year the
theme is "He's in Your Praise
"It is generally saying that
if you are a child of God that
when you praise him everything
you need lies In your praise
Williams said about the
meaning of the theme. Tick-

Lemon Grass offers best Thai in town -�r:
A small, little known
Asian restaurant on Fire
Tower
TREVOR KIRKENDALL
STAFF WRITER
There aren't many street
corners in Greenville where you
won't find some sort of Asian
food market. But out of all these
places to grab a good Asian dish,
you won't find too many Thai
restaurants.
Lemon Grass is a Thai restau-
rant located on Fire Tower Road
in Greenville that provides this
area with not only good Thai
food but a nice atmosphere.
Like most restaurants in the
Greenville area, Lemon Grass
serves both lunch and dinner
dishes. They offer a lunch menu
with large price differences
between that and the dinner
menu. The most famous dish that
the restaurant offers is the Lemon
Grass chicken, which is served
with Lemon Grass sauce, fried or
steamed rice and a spring roll.
Most of the food on the lunch
menu is served on the dinner
menu as well. They serve every-
thing you'd expect to find at a
typical Thai restaurant. Every-
thing from chicken, to Pad Thai
noodles, seafood, pork and even
a vegetarian menu. Dishes can
be made to order with a range
of spicy content. Everything is
made to order and nothing is
made in bulk.
Lemon Grass offers Thai
soups and salads that can be
ordered as appetizers. All veg-
etables in both the salads and
the entrees are fresh. They have
seasonal soup and salad dishes
that change from time to time
depending on what month it is.
The dining room itself is void
of an Asian atmosphere, but that
doesn't affect the quality of the
food. The run is surrounded
it is where you wedge pennies
into the doorframe near the
handle creating pressure on the
bolt - not allowing the handle
to turn, creating an exterior
lock. We had done this many
times before, using one person
to press on the door while the
other inserts as many pennies
as possible the more pen-
nies, the harder it is to get out
He said they ended up getting
IS guys to press on the door, and
got so many pennies wedged into
the door that three o'clock the
next day the janitors were still
working on getting the door off,
and the dork out of the room.
Another common prank or
fun college-student past time
usually has to do with being
naked. Some students from Oka-
lahoma State University decided
to skinny dip in their RA's pool
while he had a book club going
on. The moment they stepped
over the fence, not only did the
RA and all the book club mem-
bers rush outside, but the students
left behind the video camera'
that had taped the entire event.
One of the skinny dippers
Personal Trainer
said "first thing in the morning,
we were greeted by the RA, who
came bearing gifts and company,
namely our camera and a trio of
local law enforcement officers
Although sometimes students
do get in trouble for their silly
stunts, most say it's usually worth it.
"Each of us were fined $200
dollars for trespassing - it could
have been much worse. I mean
I did get this great college story
- it's practically the only thing I
remember about college said
the Oklahoma State University
skinny dipper.

Located on Fire Tower Road next to Envy Salon and Spa, Lemon Grass offers great Thai food to Greenville.
Setting a cardio goal
Regular cardiovascular exercise is one of the
most health-promoting things you can do
your body; these are reasonable goals:
on two sides by large windows,
flooding the dining area with
sunlight giving it a bright, but
more relaxed atmosphere. At
night, the interior lighting brings
out a much more romantic feel
to it. Each booth has its own
individual light suspended from
the ceiling hanging above the
table. This restaurant makes for
a nice romantic night out away
from the confines of downtown
Greenville (that's speaking from
experience, too).
Lemon Grass , however, is
not the type of place you should
go if you are looking for a quick
lunch. Each time that I have
dined out there, it ended up
being about an hour from the
time we walked in till the time
we walked out. Service has been
better at other places in town, but
this being one of the only Thai
places around, poor service is in
some respects acceptable. Don't
avoid the restaurant all together
just because I think the service is
bad - maybe that was just an off
day for the staff.
Lemon Grass is about as
authentic as it gets when it comes
to true tasting Thai food. You can
find an Asian eatery anywhere in
town, but good Thai food is hard
to find here. Lemon Grass has
been open for about a year now
and has yet to see a large crowd
gathered at its doors. More and
more people should experience
what is the best Thai place in
town.

Rose arrested on
drug charges
Pete Rose Jr the son of baseball's
all-time hits leader, surrendered to
federal authorities Monday to face
charges that he was distributing GBL
a drug sometimes used as a steroid
alternative. The 35-year-old Rose
could face a maximum of 20 years
In prison. The Indictment said Rose
admitted that he received GBL from a
person in Tennessee while a member
of the Chattanooga Lookouts, the
Double-A affiliate of the Cincinnati
Reds. He also said he supplied half
the players on that team with the drug.
According to Rose, teammates would
take GBL to "wind down" after gamec.
Rose played most of his career in
the minor leagues, but made It to the
majors for 11 games with the Reds in
1997. Last season he played for the
Long Island Ducks of the independent
Atlantic League. The GBL investigation
began in 1999 and has included one
of the largest seizures of GBL in U.S.
history. In January 2004, DEA agents
seized about 280 gallons of GBL
from a storage unit in Murfreesboro.
Further Investigation revealed that
Murfreesboro resident Bruce Michael
Wayne was a nationwide distributor of
the drug. Wayne was arrested by DEA
agents in January 2004 and pleaded
guilty to conspiracy to distribute GBL
and money laundering charges. But
Wayne failed to appear for sentencing
and is a fugitive.
Soccer fan killed
In Brazil
A 20-year-old soccer fan was
hacked to death with a sickle and
dozens were arrested after a brutal
clash between rival soccer gangs,
police said Monday. Raflck da Sllva
Cancio was lashed three times with
a sickle when a brawl erupted Sunday
during a chance meeting of Flamengo
and Botafogo fans. Cancio, a fan of
Botafogo, died before police arrived to
stop the melee. The fans, In two bus
convoys, arrived late for the game and
were turned away from the stadium
in Volta Redonda, 70 miles southwest
of Rio, media reported. They were
returning to Rio when a Botafogo
bus stopped with a flat tire and the
Flamengo group pulled up. The
buses emptied and the fans brawled
with sticks and stones, police said.
A Flamengo fan reportedly found a
sickle left near the roadside by a fruit
vendor and attacked Cancio. Police
arrested about 160 fans - mostly
from the Flamengo Young Fans group
- although most were later released.
Pirates improve to 5-1
Pirates tied for first place

SENIOR WRITER
ECU'S first-ever ice hockey
team continued to grind out wins
during a Virginia road trip over
the weekend. The Pirates scored
an improbable victory over Old
Dominion 7-6 on Friday night.
ECU trounced William & Mary
'6-2 in the Saturday matinee.
The Pirates felt that both
weekend opponents were infe-
rior. Even though ECU finished
with wins, the team wasn't happy
with their performances.
"We didn't play the brand of
hockey that we're used to playing
said team president Brent Falcon.
"Oi even that we expect from
ourselves this weekend. But we still
managed to come out with two wins
Against ODU, ECU was forced
to score in the last minute of
regulation and again in overtime
to down the Monarchs. Down
6-3, ECU scored two consecutive
shorthanded goals.
The Pirates scored again with
approximately 40 seconds left in
regulation to even the score at
6-6. Tyler Falcon, brother of team
president Brent, put away the game
winner 30 seconds into overtime.
"We didn't play our game for
the first two and a half periods
said junior Andrew Clark.
"We played with ODU instead
of playing our game. The last 10
minutes, we played our game
Forward Mike Ormsbee
notched four goals against ODU.
Sophomores Corey Fleitz and Jon

During the first two shifts,
ECU lost two critical players due
to injuries. John Leonard broke his
collarbone during the first shift.
Leonard had been among the
team leaders in points scored.
Junior defenseman Eiik
Brown suffered a more serious
injury during the second shift of
the first game. Brown separated
his shoulder, which led to his
lung collapsing. Brown was not
immediately diagnosed. Doctors
called Brown on Saturday, the
night after his injury, to alert him
of his collapsed lung.

ECU volleyball has shutout weekend
Lady Pirates extend winning streak to
three games in convincing fashion
DAVID WASKIEWICZ
SENIOR WRITER
The Pirates rolled over both Central Florida and Southern Miss In three consecutive sets this weekend
As the end of the regular season approaches
for the ECU volleyball team, each win is critical in
hopes of receiving a high seed in the conference
tournament. After coming off of a win over Tulsa,
the Lady Pirates were looking to improve their
record as they went into last weekend to face UCF
and Southern Miss.
In the first game of the weekend ECU faced
UCF and despite keeping it close throughout the
matches, the Lady Pirates were just too much as
they swept their opponent for the second time this
season, 30-26, 30-28 and 30-28.
Sophomore Mignon Dubenion led the Lady
Pirates with 13 kills in the match. Senior Pam Ferris
led ECU in defense with 16 digs. The digs combined
with 11 kills and was enough to give Ferris her 13th
double-double of the season. As a team ECU out-hit
UCF .263 to .223 on their way to the win.
The second game of the weekend pitted ECU
against Southern Miss. For the second time this
season the Lady Pirates made short work of their
opponent sweeping Southern Miss. 30-25, 30-14
and 32-30.
Ferris led the team in kills with IS as sopho-
mores Kelley Wernert and Dubenion finished with
13 and 12 respectively. Senior Erica Wilson led the
Lady Pirates with a .462 hitting percentage, as the
team hit .478 as a whole. Freshman Trish Monroe
led the defense in digs with 11.
With the win the ECU Volleyball team now
stands at 16-10 on the season and 7-6 in conference
play. Overall, ECU now is tied with Rice for sixth
place in C-USA standings.
The Lady Pirates will be looking to improve
upon their conference record this weekend as they
face Memphis and UAB at home. ECU will then
wrap up their schedule next Tuesday as they face
Charlotte. Play against Memphis begins this Friday
at 7 p.m. in Minges Coliseum at Williams Arena.

Lady Pirates defeat SMU,
fall to Rice in semifinal
JOSH FERNANDEZ
STAFF WRITER ,
At certain points during the
2005 season, the chance of being
seeded in the Conference USA
tournament was getting dimmer
and dimmer. Strings of tough
losses turned the post-season in
to something to think about for
2006. In short, it seemed like
this season was going to be the
one that got away. But the Lady
Pirates denied these suspicions
and closed out the year with a
bang.
ECU women's soccer made
it to their fourth C-USA tourna-
ment in the past five years.
Right from the start, the Lady
Pirates (8-12-1, 5-5-0) knew it
wasn't going to be easy to take
home the C-USA trophy. Their first
opponent, second-seeded SMU
(14-4-2,8-1-0), had shut them out
2-0 on Senior Day in Greenville
back on Oct. 23. They squared-off
once again on Nov. 2, only this
time it was 'win-or-go-home
Freshman goalkeeper Amber
Campbell played brilliantly for
the Pirates, making seven saves
in regulation time and surviv-
ing six Mustangs corner kicks
throughout the match. Mus-
tangs' keeper Ashley Gunter had
just one save to her credit.
Although the teams com-
bined for 25 shots in the first 90
minutes, neither could muster up
a goal. The contest was going to
be an overtime chess match.
Throughout the entire game,
SMU out-shot ECU, something
that will make any soccer coach
go insane. But Coach Rob Don-
nenwirth and his Lady Pirates
kept cool under pressure.
"I thought we played with
them step-for-step during the
' regulation period and during the
overtime periods, we did every-
thing we could to just hang on
said Donnenwirth as quoted by
ECU Sports Information.
Yes, that's right, overtime
periods. This match turned in
to one for the ages as the teams
fought to a stalemate after 110
minutes of play. Sudden death
penalty kicks were now the only
way to find a victor of the nearly
two-hour long match.
In the first stage of pen-
alty kicks, both the Pirates and
Mustangs converted four out of
their five shots, both failing to
convert on their second shots
due to diving saves made by each
squad's goalkeeper.
However, senior Kate Lowe
was the hero for ECU as she put
her shot in the net. All the Lady
Pirates needed for a victory was
for Mustangs' scoring-star Olivia
O'Rear to miss her shot and that
is exactly what happened. O'Rear
sent her shot wide securing the
victory for the seventh-seeded
Pirates.

(KRT) � Well, it is over now. It has to be over,
doesn't it? Donovan McNabb, for the first time in
public, has now said that the Eagles are better off
without Terrell Owens. There would seem to be
no turning back.
The Eagles scored only 10 points Sunday
night in FedEx Field, but McNabb suggested the
offense was better without Owens. They lost to
the Redskins, 17-10, and their record is 4-4, and
they are threatening to do a glug-glug-glug, but the
quarterback seems quite ready to cut whatever ties
remain with the Eagles' best offensive weapon, who
was suspended Saturday for "conduct detrimental
to the team
This is what McNabb said:
"Obviously it is tough losing a guy of his cali-
ber, his ability, but I think we might be better off.
I think what we did tonight, we showed that we
played well together. I think we also showed that
when given the opportunity, guys can make plays
for us.
"We're 4-4. We're not 1-7.1 think that's the way
to look at it. For the guys in the locker room, we
win together and we lose together
As you might imagine, the words "better off" set
off alarm bells in reporters' heads. McNabb tends
never to say anything, and he has gone out of his
way to avoid saying anything over the last few
months, despite barb after barb from T.O.
And, so, he was asked again. Better off? What
did he mean?
"What I meant was, we played as a team
McNabb said. "Nothing against him and his atti-
tude. It's just that when you get out there on the
field, it's about playing together. I think we all
played with a lot of attitude and a lot of adrenaline.
Guys played well together. It was unfortunate that
we didn't win this game, but 1 think it may be a
steppingstone for us to move forward
McNabb could not have made it more plain.
Better off. steppingstone
This is not like last year, when Owens took
offense after he broke an ankle and McNabb said he
thought the Eagles could still win the Super Bowl
without T.O. That was just a quarterback bucking
up a wounded team, and Owens was wrong to take
offense. This is much different, though. There is
no mistaking the feelings here.
Finally, belatedly, the quarterback has declared
himself. And now we get to see exactly how much
clout No. 5 has in the Eagles organization. Because,
as we stand today, the suspension of Owens - fol-
lowing published remarks criticizing McNabb and
the club, as well as after some kind of fight with
former defensive endteam ambassador Hugh
Douglas last week in the training room - is indefi-
nite. Team president Joe Banner said that coach
Andy Reid will speak with Owens sometime this
week to clarify the situation.
Reid, ever helpful, said, "I'm not going to get
into that Asked when he might get into it, he said,
"When I want to Oh, OK.
But now McNabb has added his public vote.
And now we'll see.
Asked if he would prefer to go on without
Owens, McNabb said, "That's not my call. If he's

out there, we need to play well
together. We win together, we
lose together. If he's not out there,
it needs to be the same thing
Asked if he would need a per-
sonal apology from T.O. before
his reinstatement, McNabb said,
"Personally, I don't need to hear
anything. What I need to see is
just us playing well together
If you want to criticize the
quarterback for living his life
on the high road these last few
months, and not just taking a
swing at T.O that is your privi-
lege. But it is clear that the man
made a calculation, and that it
went like this: that T.O. is an
irreplaceable offensive weapon
on this team, and that the front
office clearly wanted to make it
work, and that the goal is sup-
posed to be a return trip to the
Super Bowl, and that all of that
added up to the high road, how-
ever distasteful the journey.
You have to respect that.
Now, you have to realize that
everything has changed.
"With what's going on, it's
unfortunate that some of our
young guys have to go through
this McNabb said. "It's unfor-
tunate that some of our placrs
who are trying to make such an

Again, I think we all can look at
this film and learn some things
and move on and get ready for
Dallas
How McNabb makes all of
this jibe with the results, with
the 10 points the team scored
against a less-than-awesome
Redskins team, is not easy - but
he doesn't care. Clearly, they are
not as strong an offensive team
without Owens, but McNabb
does not see it. He says it can't be
termed a positive when the team
loses, but he then went out of his
way to find the silver lining.
"What we showed tonight
is the defense pumping up the
offense and the offense pumping
up the defense McNabb said.
"The special teams, too. There
was no, I need to see this or 'I
need to do this Guys were doing
whatever was needed to win.
They made plays for us and it's
unfortunate we weren't able to
capitalize
With that, McNabb was done.
He had said plenty, finally.

ANOTHER FAMILY MEMBER,
KNOW THAT THE BIGGEST HEALTH RISK
MIGHT BE YOU.
One out of five adults finds themselves as the
designated "caregiver" for a loved one who
can't manage alone. Recent findings reveal
that this role can be precarious - for both
parties. While trying to do it all, you can
become overwhelmed and risk your own
health. As this happens, the level of care
you're providing may also suffer. Fortunately,
there is help and relief out
there for both of you. Visit

"I'm excited about this win
and very proud of the way our
team played
The Lady Pirates were in their
first semifinal match in the C-
USA tournament since 2002 and
they were set to face third-seeded
Rice, host of the tournament.
The Owls (13-6-1, 7-2-1), like
SMU, shut out the Lady Pirates
in their regular season match-up.
However, the teams hadn't faced
each other in over a month and
were In an elimination situation.
In the 32nd minute, Owls'
defender Erin Droeger headed
in the first goal of the match to
put Rice in the lead. This broke
Amber Campbell's streak of not
allowing a single goal in regula-
tion time in over 240 minutes.
Minus the goal, both teams
played a seemingly even match.
However, the Owls managed to
protect their one-goal lead and
outshot the Pirates 10-3.
The proverbial 'nail-in-the-
coffin' was Samantha Conn's
seventh goal of the season as
she put the Owls ahead 2-0 in
the closing seconds of the 81st
minute. Freshman AnneCandee
was credited with the assist.
The game ended nine min-
utes later, sending the Lady
Pirates back home to Greenville
and the Owls to the champion-
ship match.
On Sunday, Rice took home
the C-USA trophy after they
defeated in-state rival Texas-El
Paso (19-3-1,8-3-1) the same way
they defeated the Pirates. The
Owls shut out the Miners 3-0.

the second period. ECU rattled
off four consecutive goals to end
the scoring.
The sophomore Fleitz scored
two goals, both assisted by
Nathan Buhr and Mike Orsmbee.
Mark Linzer also scored two goals
against the Tribe. Ormsbee and
Fleitz each led the team with
three points each.
"It was a rough weekend over-
all, but we came out with two vic-
tories said junior Andrew Clark.
