SGA rewrites constitution
SGA President M. Cole Jones spoke at a recent meeting about the constitution, which is almost complete.
All students will be SGA
members under the new
document
KIMBERLY BELLAMY
STAFF WRITER
After many years of not
being modified - since the very
first writing, actually - the SGA
administration is in its last stages
of making history by redoing the
constitution, which included
many complex rules and difficult
language to interpret.
M. Cole Jones, SGA Presi-
dent, said, "The constitution
was misused and abused for
personal gain and other alterna-
tive motives besides serving the
students
"It was very visible, being the
detailed document it was. It was
filled with many loopholes and'
complicated language. It was really
time for a change and to basically
give it a whole new face lift
According to Jones, the
last two SGA administrations
attempted to revise the consti-
tution, but were unsuccessful.
Jones said that his administration
decided to make this a platform
goal of theirs and that they were
determined to accomplish it.
To make initial changes to
the constitution, a 20 percent
vote was needed, but the largest
percentage of votes obtained was
about 16 percent.
The process of reconstruct-
ing the constitution began this
summer during the summer
senate that consisted of mainly the
executive board. The executive
board includes the president, vice
president, secretary and treasurer.
The student involvement for
the changes basically consisted
of these executive members and
grew as the year progressed.
Some of the key players in
the process were M. Cole Jones,
Dustin Pittman, Ben Wyche,
Terry Gore, Ping Li, Charles
Owens, Michaelino Antahades,
Ryan Wiggins, Abey Dessie, Nadia
Payne and Terry Holloman.
The previous rules in the con-
stitution didn't leave much room
for SGA to treat all organizations
equally as far as funding and
other issues are concerned.
Ben Wyche, speaker of the
senate, said that he got the
chance to look over the con-
stitution about two years ago
and after noticing injustices
that the document included
felt it was time for a change.
Wyche said, "There were
several issues that were in con-
s tradiction to supreme ruling and
1 state legislation, mainly how we
c funded organizations that were of
rs religious or political orientation
The only revisions made to
the document over the school's
S history were minor changes made
when men began to enroll at the
school. The past constitution
wasn't a direct reflection of all
the students, according to Jones.
Dr. Gary Moore, vice chancel-
lor of student life, and Mary Lu
Anta also played a big role in giving
SGA the permission and fund-
ing to get the revisions started.
The SGA was able to make
some drastic changes that will
ensure equality and impact all
students positively.
Altering the language of the
constitution was an important
change that will ensure that the
average college student will be
able to understand it.

Students are encouraged to attend the second open discussion.
Fifth Street may soon
become MLK, Jr. Street
Open discussion on
street renaming was held
Monday
CLAIRE MURPHY
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
An open discussion on
renaming the entirety of Fifth
Street after Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr. was held in Willis audi-
torium Monday. The topic has
been a sensitive one for a long
time, and many citizens are
happy that something is finally
being done.
The evening opened with a
brief history on the street's name
based on city record. On April 11,
1989, a letter was sent requesting
Memorial Drive be renamed after
MLK. It, of course, remained
named for war veterans.
Many other roads were con-
sidered, and on Oct. 12, 1990,
zoning commissions held a vote
for the change of West Fifth
Street. January 1999 was the date
of the official name change that
still exists now.
The current debate is having
all of Fifth Street named after
Dr. King instead of just half. To
most Greenville natives, keep-
ing half is just degrading and
offensive. Sure, there is history-
people carry with them from
Fifth Street and it will be a pain
for those residents to change
addresses, but there is more his-
tory in this town of diversity and
segregation that affects people of
all races on every street in town.
This is the history that needs to
be symbolized by our admira-
tion for Dr. King for the younger
generations, students and aging
natives alike.
Dr. Derek H. Alderman, asso-
ciate professor of geography, is a
very active participant in Martin
Luther King, Jr. research. He has

'Give to the Troops' supplies peace of mind
Donations for troops are welcomed by the Gamma Beta Chi Society.
Gamma Beta Chi steps
up to assist deployed
soldiers
CLAYTON BAUMAN
STAFF WRITER
The Gamma Beta Chi Society
has been actively involved in a
program geared toward sending
care packages to troops deployed
overseas in places such as Iraq
and Afghanistan.
The society adopts different
organizations. This semester,
"Give to the Troops" was the
program of choice.
The society is accepting a
fi wide range of items to be sent
9 overseas and anyone is welcome
p and encouraged to donate.
I "A big part of what we're
S trying to do is to provide oppor-
tunities that 'Give to the Troops'
can't meet. For example, they'll
make a request of what they
would like Give to the Troops to
send to them in their care pack-
ages said Debranetta Gethers,
junior and president of Gamma
Beta Phi.
"And sometimes troops
request items that they don't
have in stock or they haven't
had donate and 'Give to the
Troops' can't financially go out
and purchase for them, so we
want to be there to meet that
need as well
Give to the Troops' is a
nation-wide organization. There
is one in each state and it just
so happens that 'Give to the
Troops' in North Carolina is in
Greenville said Stacey Jones,
service chairperson for Gamma
Beta Phi.
"They take donations and
they package them up and send
them overseas to places like Iraq
and Afghanistan and anywhere
else we have troops said Brandon
Brake, junior and vice president.
The society also sends out vol-
unteers to work at the "Give to the
Troops" location in Greenville.
Three to four volunteers go every
day to the center when it is open,
and take care of packaging.
"We pack enough for eight
to 12 people in the unit to hand
out Jones said.
"We put cards in there,
we put food in there, little
goodies, books, things of that
nature along with daily basic
things
The program started at the
beginning of February.
In the past Gamma Beta Chi
has worked with the Ronald
McDonald House, as well as col-
lected money for children who
are affected with aids.
"It's gone pretty well, but
they still need more Brake said
regarding the organization's cur-
rent success.
"I think a lot of people will
be interested in it, they just don't
know about it, so we just want to
get that name out there and get
them out
Gamma Beta Chi is currently
putting together plans to accept
items in Wright Plaza, as well as
collaborate with the society at
Pitt Community College. There
is no tentative date set yet.
The society learned about the
"Give to the Troops" program
through the advising center.
Gamma Beta Chi is a national
honor and service organization.
Potential members must hold
a 3.25 GPA or be in the top IS
percent of their class.
For those interested in donat-
ing, "Give to the Troops" is
located at 3109 Landmark Street
across from Wal-Mart.

Taking new steps toward
reducing smoking
Student Union lays down the cards
Grant helps initiate
programs to stop
smoking
KIMBERLY BELLAMY
STAFF WRITER
The N.C. Health and Well-
ness Trust Fund (HWTF) awarded
ECU $80,000 Feb. 9 to decrease
the number of smokers between
the ages of 18 and 24.
Faculty members involved
in implementing programs
that will help reduce college-
aged smokers include Georgia
Childs, Dr. David White, Karen
Warren and Dr. Craig Becker.
White and Warren will
be the principle investigators
examining how smoking can be
reduced, and Becker will act as
the lead evaluator who will see
that the programs are going as
planned and are fulfilling the
objectives they have to reduce
the number of college smokers.
The expertise of Family Medi-
cine and Pediatrics will provide
assistance with these programs.
Also involved in this proj-
ect are the Department of
Health Education and Promo-
tion and the Healthy Pirates.
The Healthy Pirates will deliver
smoking cessation classes. With
the help of several groups, the
Healthy Pirates will have a media
campaign to promote students
not to start smoking or to stop.
The grant will allow the
individuals involved in this
grant to start mandatory
tobacco prevention education
in the required Health 1000
courses and develop and enforce
a campus smoking policy.
"We are very excited for the
opportunity to enhance the
health and well-being of our
students said Childs.
The grant will last until
December 2007, but efforts to
reduce smoking and prevention
will continue.
"The modules for the Health
1000 classes will still be in place
when the grant money runs out
Childs said
According to the Center
for Disease Control, the age
group of 18-24-year-olds is
the only age group that has
nationally rising smoking
rates instead of falling ones.
Childs said that she feels that
social habits and stress may cause
the large number of smokers seen
within this age group.
"A majority of 18-24-year-
olds are in college or may have
stressful jobs. They may start
smoking as a means of relieving
stress Childs said.
"Smoking may be a social
thing where they smoke at parties,
in the club or outside on campus
for a chance to meet people
The grant will also allow
them a chance to create an area
where smokers can go to smoke
without affecting the air and
breathing of non-smokers.
"There are often people stand-
ing outside near the entrances
of buildings smoking. This
affects others who have to travel
through the smoke to get in the
buildings Childs said.
Environmentally, smoking
Is a problem at ECU mainly
because of students and staff
throwing their cigarette butts on
the ground.
ECU's grant is one of the first
state funded grants to promote
prevention and reduction of
tobacco use among college-aged
youth.
Over the past two years,
$1.6 million was awarded to 20
universities, community col-
leges, health departments and
organizations in North Carolina
by HWTF.
Students who would like
to quit now have the option of
calling the HWTF-funded N.C.
Tobacco Use Quitline at 1-800-
QUIT-NOW.

CLAIRE MURPHY
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
The ECU Student Union put
on a Casino night of free bil-
liards, bowling, food and games
Wednesday evening to show
students their appreciation for
all they do to support the school.
The fun and games were

dent Union does and how to get
involved. They are responsible for
organizing all of the fun events
and activities for the student
body such as open mic nights,
films, educational lectures, dance
competitions, comedians and a

Everyone present had the
chance to win an iPod shuffle, a
digital camera, a portable DVD
player and tons of ECU memo-
rabilia. Providing these events
for students is what the Student
Union is all about.
Event planner Jessica Creeden
said, "These events are beneficial
for students because it allows
them to learn more about Student
Union

seven committees dedicated to
making an inviting atmosphere
for ECU.

New Firefighters
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - More
people who have already had a career
are becoming full-time firefighters, fire
officials say.
The Fayetteville Fire Department
does not keep statistics about how
many people are switching careers
or about what jobs they've had, but
officials say, since Sept. 11,2001, the
trend is apparent.
Some were soldiers and airmen,
others stay-at-home moms and
contractors. Many made more money
than they do as firefighters, but it's not
about the size of the paycheck.
For some, it's about the hours.
Fayetteville firefighters work 10 shifts
a month at 24 hours per shift, leaving
about 20 free days for family, hobbies
or even another job.
For others, Ifs about the rush of adrenaline
when entering a burning building.
Mostly, they want to feel as if they've
made Fayetteville a better place to live.
Almost half of these current trainees
had other careers before becoming
firefighters.
The exercise is designed to simulate
the type of smoky, fiery building the
recruits could see as firefighters.
Lewis, at 44, is one of the older people
In this class.
Teen Smoking
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - More teenagers
in the nation's top-producing tobacco
state are avoiding cigarettes,
chew and other leaf products that
once dominated North Carolina's
economic engine, according to a
survey released Tuesday.
About 25 percent fewer high school
students and 40 percent fewer
middle-schoolers reported smoking
between 2003 and 2005, according
to the biennial Youth Tobacco Survey.
The drop represents 27,000 fewer
teens that reported smoking during
the two-year period.
The kids from the ground up really
do precipitate the buzz that it's no
longer cool to smoke, and because
of that, their parents jump on said
Lt. Gov. Bev Perdue, chairwoman of
the N.C. Health and Wellness Trust
Fund. The fund uses money from
the state's master settlement with
tobacco companies to improve the
health of North Carolinians.
National
Major Bush ally visits Washington
WASHINGTON (AP) - Italian Prime
Minister Silvio Berlusconi, facing
a tough election to stay in power,
got a boost Tuesday from his ally
President Bush, who effusively
praised Berlusconi as a strong
leader who has "brought stability to
the Italian government
Berlusconi had breakfast with Bush,
followed by formal talks.
"He's a man of his word Bush said
of Berlusconi as they sat side by side
in the Oval Office.
"Obviously, it's important for an
American president to be able to
work with somebody in a consistent
manner and I appreciate the stability
the prime minister has brought to our
close ally and friend
Asked whether the friendly U.S
Italian relations would continue if
Berlusconi's opponent won, Bush
hastened to say that he was keeping
his distance from Italian politics.
Italy initially was among the most
important U.S. allies in the Iraq war,
having provided 3,000 troops to the
effort in 2003 after U.Sled invaders
had brought down President Saddam
Hussein's government. Italy now has
2,600 troops in country and is in the
process of removing them all by the
end of the year.
The Italian economy is foundering
MLK
from page A1
many works published on this
subject and is very informed on
all aspects of street naming. He
has given many talks on naming
streets after MLK, but this was his
first time speaking about it to his
own town.
The purpose of his speech
was to show how prevalent street
naming is and how culturally
important as well.
"There are over 730 U.S.
cities named after King, and this
number is very conservative said
Dr. Alderman.
There have been recorded
marches and much controversy
over the years throughout the
country on this topic. On average,
19 streets per year are named after
him since his assassination. There
is even a side street in Italy named
after the honorable Dr. King
making it even more shameful, in
some opinions, to not give a man
who inspired an entire nation an
entire road in his memory.
There was also a lot of help
and guidelines provided by
VISIONS here in Greenville at the
discussion. They are a non-profit
education organization in close
connection with ECU. They are
mainly based on cultural, racial
and sexual equality.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
was about integration and unity.
It was strongly implied at the dis-
cussion that naming half of the
street after him (that half being
on what is classified as the "poor"
side) symbolizes diversity and seg-
regation on its own. The citizens
here are looking for a metaphori-
cal bridge to connect all com-
munities and ethnicities and rid
them of the lingering prejudices.
All are welcome to attend
the next discussion March 27
at 7 p.m. at the Eppes Recre-
ation Center at 400 Nash St.
here in Greenville. Student
voices are greatly appreciated.

SGA
from page A1
Changes were also made to
provide the constitution with
more concrete rules to ensure that
SGA will function more smoothly
in their business decisions.
The administration decided
to change the title of senate to
congress and representatives
to day senators. Clearer job
descriptions were created for the
executive board members as well.
Other technical things were
revised such as an increase in the
executive board's salary, the com-
bining of all the branches, the
structure of the body of articles,
the impeachment process, checks
and balances along with many
other things.
One of the main goals of the
new constitution is to serve the
students in the best way pos-
sible.
Jones said that he would like
the student body to know that
every student is a member of
SGA under the new constitution
and everyone is free to express
concerns and opinions.
Ryan Wiggins, screening and
appointment chair who became
active in the changes later in
the semester, said that recently
the administration have been
working well over 50 hours a
week making changes iq the
document.
In order to approve the consti-
tution, three reading must occur
and ratification of the revised
document. The third reading
of the constitution occurred on
February 20.
Approval from Dr. Moore
and Corey King, assistant vice
chancellor of student experi-
ences, are the final steps in this
historic event for SGA and the
university.
Once the constitution is
approved, no other major changes
will be able to take place until 2010.
The constitution will be avail-
able for the students to view via
the Internet on the SGA Web site,
according to Wiggins.
This is one of the many
achievements the SGA adminis-
tration has been able to accom-
plish. This administration has
been able to help many orga-
nizations, the community and
have more things in store for
this year.
Jones said, "We want students
to know that this administration
is ran by the students and for the

and Berlusconi's support for the war
in Iraq has been deeply unpopular
in Italy. Berlusconi has expressed
confidence repeatedly that he would
win re-election, and recent opinion
polls show him narrowing Prodi's lead.
Marketing for CIAA
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - It may seem
incongruous that for 14 years, the
CIAA basketball tournament and its
related events have been overseen
by a management company founded
by a former NASCAR marketer in the
posh suburb of Cornelius.
But Tom Grabowski, president and
CEO of Urban Sports & Entertainment
Group, said the pairing of his
background in NASCAR television
production with events involving
historically black colleges and
universities isnt as odd as it might seem.
The sponsors, the companies out
there like Bank of America and others,
definitely seem to want to work with
what we call boutique agencies - the
smaller, more focused agencies

Prosecutors snow execution
Saddam signed order they say
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Prosecutors
presented documents Tuesday
they said show Saddam Hussein
approved executions of more than
140 Shiites in the 1980s, the most
direct evidence yet against the former
Iraqi leader in his four-month trial.
Among those sentenced to hang was
an 11-year-old boy.
The most significant document
featured a signature said to be
Saddam's on a court list of people to
be executed, though it was not clear he
was aware of their ages. The list on that
particular document only had names.
About 50 of those sentenced died
during interrogation before they
could go to the gallows. One man, his
brother and two sons were executed
by mistake, and Saddam allegedly
ordered them declared "martyrs" to
cover up the error.
When it was discovered that the 11-
year-old and nine other juveniles were
not executed but were still in prison
years later, they were ordered killed
and their bodies burled in secret;
an order approved with a signature
the prosecution said was that of the
intelligence agency chief at the time,
Barzan Ibrahim, who is Saddam's half
brother and a co-defendant in the trial.
Deadly Bird Flu
BERLIN (AP) - The deadly strain of bird
flu has been found in a cat in Germany,
officials said Tuesday; the first time the
virus has been identified in an animal
other than a bird in central Europe.
Health officials urged cat owners to
keep pets indoors after the dead cat
was discovered over the weekend
on the Baltic Sea island of Ruegen,
where most of the more than 100 wild
birds infected by the H5N1 strain have
been found.
The disease could continue its
spread in poultry stocks in Europe
and beyond.
The risk now is high for everybody
said Bernard Vallat, director of the
Paris-based World Organization for
Animal Health, which hosted the
two-day meeting of experts from 50
countries.
Authorities in Sweden and Hungary
also said they were conducting
further tests to confirm whether wild
birds that had tested positive for a
form of bird flu were infected with the
H5N1 strain.
Slovenia, as well as the southern
German state of Bavaria, both registered
new cases of H5N1 in wild fowl.

(CareerBullder.com) It's
one of the simplest things you
can do. Your mother told you
to always say it. By expressing
it - or not - you can change a
person's mood and percep-
tion of you in an instant. Who
knew two words could be so
powerful?
Writing a thank-you letter
after an interview doesn't just
showcase a candidate's manners
- it can also make or break their
chances of landing a job. Nearly
15 percent of hiring managers
say they would not hire someone
who failed to send a thank-you
letter after the interview. Thirty-
two percent say they would
still consider the candidate, but
would think less of him or her,
according to CareerBuilder.com's
recent "How to Get in the Front
Door" survey.
Although most hiring
managers expect to receive a
thank-you note, format prefer-
ences differ. One-in-four hiring
managers prefer to receive a
thank-you note in e-mail form
only; 19 percent want the e-
mail followed up with a hard
copy; 21 percent want a typed
hard copy only and 23 percent
prefer just a handwritten note.
No matter which format
you choose, it's crucial to act
quickly when sending a thank-
you letter to your interviewer.
Twenty-six percent of hiring
managers expect to have the
letter in-hand two days after
the interview, and 36 percent
expect to have it within three
to five days. Sending the letter
quickly reinforces your enthusiasm
for the job, and helps keep you
top-of-mind for the interviewer.
Survey Methodology The
CareerBuilder.com survey, "How
to Get in the Front Door was
conducted from May 17 to May
27, 2005. Methodology used to
collect survey responses totaling
more than 650 hiring managers
for this study involved selecting
a random sample of comScore
Networks panel members.
These Web Panel members were
approached via an e-mail invita-
tion, which asked them to par-
ticipate in a short online survey.
The results of this survey are
statistically accurate to within
3.84 percentage points (19 times
out of 20).
?
Here are some
tips to make the
most of your
thank-you letter:
Stick to three paragraphs.
In the first paragraph, thank the
Interviewer (or the opportunity.
Use the second to sell yourself
by reminding the hiring manager
of your qualifications. In the third
paragraph, reiterate your Interest
In the position.
Fill In the blanks.
Thank-you notes are a great
way to add In key Information
you forgot In the Interview, clarify
any points or try to ease any
reservations the Interviewer might
have expressed.
Proofread carefully.
Double-check to be sure your
note Is free from typos and
grammatical errors. Don't rely
solely on your spell-checker.
Be specific.
Don't send out a generic
correspondence. Instead, tailor
your note to the specific )ob
and the relationship you have
established with the hiring
manager.

Variety is the
spice of life
Last night my roommate boiled two hot
dogs for dinner. Last week she made a
bologna-and-mayonnaise sandwich with
a side of cottage cheese for lunch.
Sometimes she mixes rice, a chicken
breast and a can of French onion soup all
together in a casserole dish and bakes it
for hours, which makes the whole house
smell. She doesn't like most vegetables,
and she thinks the food I eat is just as weird.
Eating habits and food preferences vary
widely from person to person, just like
everything else. No one person's habits
or preferences are better than another's,
as long as they're healthy.
Yet we've all judged others' different
preferences, often in negative ways. Who
hasn't seen someone eating a dish and
said "ew, gross at least once?
What a person chooses to eat is influ-
enced by a number of factors, but it is a
personal choice that really only affects
that person, just like clothing and hair-
style choices, religious affiliation and
sexual orientation.
So why are we so judgmental?
I don't have to like my roommate's food,
but I don't have to criticize it either.
Personal choices are just that, personal.
To assume that some know better than
others what to eat, how to dress, where to
worship or what to feel, even on the small-
est scale, limits our ability to embrace
diversity.
Everyone is different, and those differ-
ences should be used to foster creativity,
not conflict. We here at TEC encourage dif-
ferences and debate, in food and in life.
Pirate Rant
Opinion Columnist
I'm against drugs for all the wrong reasons
Williams and Doherty
need to kick the habit.
for my sake
GARY MCCABE
BITTER BOULEVARD
Drugs are ruining my life.
Now before you begin assem-
bling intervention groups across
campus for me, let me state that
I don't do drugs. 1 can't afford
them. And technically, I don't
have a life. That's beside the
point, though. Drugs are ruin-
ing my life, albeit indirectly.
Let me give you an abbreviated
list of my heroes in life - John
Belushi, Brad Nowell of Sublime,
Jimi Hendrix, Lenny Bruce, Elvis
Presley, Keith Moon, Dana Plato
and Marvin Gaye. What do all of
these people have in common?
They all died because of drugs.
Well, except for Marvin Gaye. He
died because his dad was a jerk.
But I'm not trying to make
some noble statement about the
dangers of drug use. I'm saying
that these people are all selfish
and have deprived me of years
of entertainment because all the
money in the world wasn't enough
to keep them happy.
If Belushi had thought better
of shooting himself up with
a combination of heroin and
cocaine, maybe Blues Brothers
2000 would have been good. Or
if Keith Moon hadn't overdosed,
maybe he could have convinced
Pete Townshend that giving his
credit card number to a child
pornography site wasn't the best
way to do research for a book.
Just think how much better
the world would be if these people
had lived. Think of all the Nirvana
records, River Phoenix movies
and "Diff'rent Strokes" reunions
we've missed out on. That's why
I'm writing this article. I'm writ-
ing this article because two of my
favorite people at the moment are
on the verge of ruining my day and
1 don't want that to happen.
If he hasn't already, Ricky Wil-
liams is ruining the chances of my
beloved Miami Dolphins winning
a Super Bowl in the near future. 1
may have mentioned in a previous
piece, but let me-reiterate that I'm
a die-hard Dolfan. So when the
enigmatic Williams was traded to
Dolphins dirt-cheap and ended
up leading the league in rushing
in his first year with the team, I
was happier than Pete Townshend
when the police believed that he
was "doing research
The WilliamsDolfans love
affair was short-lived, though.
Just days prior to training camp
for what would have been his
third season in Miami, Williams
left the team - and then left the
country - because he wanted to
smoke marijuana freely. The ensu-
ing season for the Williams-less
Dolphins was awful. And when 1
say awful, I mean awful like John
Travolta's hit song "Let Her In
Seriously - download it and see
what I mean.
So after sitting out one season,
Williams changed his mind.
Maybe he missed the game. Maybe
it had something to do with the
$8.6 million he owed the Dolphins
for breach of contract. Either way,
he wanted back in and Miami's
new coach Nick Saban facilitated
it. I was apprehensive at first, but
he won me back by playing his
heart out for the remainder of the
season following his four-week
suspension for three failed drug
tests.
The Dolphins finished strong
and were projected to have a great
2006-07 season. Bringing back
Williams was a great move and
whether he was traded during
the off season or retained for a
strong backfield next season, the
Dolphins were better of f unless
he failed another drug test.
But he's a changed man,
right? That's impossible. It would
never of course, it happened!
Now Williams faces a one year
suspension from the NFL. It
wasn't a new man - just the
same crap. This time it killed any
shot Miami has at a Super Bowl.
Williams' discretions are noth-
ing compared to Pete Doherty's
though. Pete Doherty isn't exactly
a big star in the United States
- usually he's just referred to as
Kate Moss's crack-addicted ex-
boyfriend. That might even be
a fair assessment of Doherty if it
wasn't for the teensy-weensy fact
that he co-founded the greatest
band since Nirvana. Of course,
most Americans were too busy
listening to Nelly to notice.
I discovered the Libertines a
bit late. By the time I heard their
debut album Up the Bracket, origi-
nally released in October of 2002,
Doherty had already been kicked
out of the band three times, once
for burglarizing his band mate Carl
Barat's house in a crack-induced
haze. It was only August 2004
when I heard Up the Bracket, but
already the Libertines were no
more and Doherty had formed a
new band, Babyshambles.
It's a shame about Doherty
because it's obvious that as a
songwriter and as musician, he's
an absolute genius. His lyricism
is on par with some of the best
-Costello, Lennon, Cobain - but
his well-documented drug addic-
tion will be the death of him.
Since Oct. 2, 2005, Doherty has
been arrested at least a half dozen
times for possession of "class-A"
drugs. On Jan. 25 alone, he was
arrested three times, although
to be fair, one of the arrests was
for assaulting a fan at a recent
Babyshambles show.
On Feb. 8 of this year, some-
how Doherty managed to skip
out on jail time for all of the
arrests and instead was handed
a 12-month community order,
which stated that Doherty must
stay clean for a year and should he
fail a mandatory drug test in that
period, he could face the jail time
he had just avoided, somewhere in
the range of five to seven years.
Happily, Doherty vowed to
kick the habit as he'd just been
handed a gift from God. He
cleaned himself up, showed up to
his concerts on time and things
looked good. You'd think he'd
finally change his ways, right?
Knowing the consequences, he'd
never of course, he did! He got
picked up on suspicion of stealing
a car and possession of "class-A"
drugs last Tuesday. By the time he
gets out of prison, I'll have moved
on from Brit Rock. Hell, I could be
past this phase in a month.
So because of these selfish
millionaires, one which could
share his bed again with Kate
Moss should he ever clean him-
self up, I'm losing out. I'm not
the happiest of people. I don't
always find a reason to get out
of bed in the morning. I don't
care if people do drugs. That's
their own choice, but the minute
it affect me like it has in these
two cases, I get angry. I want a
Super Bowl championship. I want
another Babyshambles record.
What are these guys thinking?
Do they even consider how their
actions are going to affect me?
In My Opinion
(KRT) Wednesday marks
the 45th anniversary of the
Peace Corps. And as a recently
returning Peace Corps volunteer,
I believe we need more organiza-
tions like this one.
Six months ago, I was board-
ing a plane in Turkmenistan,
heading home to the United
States. 1 had finished two years of
work as a Peace Corps volunteer
in a tiny village in an unknown
corner of the world. I remem-
bered the tear-streaked faces of
my local friends, the little library
we had built and filled with Shel
Silverstein and Judy Blume and
the essays my students had writ-
ten about Rosa Parks and global
warming.
In the years since its creation
in 1961, Peace Corps volunteers
have lived all over the world,
upholding the three goals of
the organization: To teach other
countries about America and
its customs, to teach Americans
about other countries and their
customs, and to assist in develop-
ing infrastructure in countries
that request it.
Often with few resources
and just a few weeks of training
in local languages and culture,
Peace Corps volunteers have
taught English, established nurs-
eries and fisheries, supported
local groups and, most impor-
tantly, built lasting relationships
with host country nationals. Vol-
unteers continue this important
work today and are establishing
peace and friendship in more
than 70 countries.
President Kennedy created
the United States Peace Corps
- the first organization of its
kind - after he addressed a group
of students at the University of
Michigan. The students pleaded
for an opportunity to serve their
country peacefully and to give
back to the global community.
Kennedy was moved by their
determination and hope.
Many of us head off to our
countries, determined to help
people and to transmit our
knowledge to those less fortu-
nate. What inevitably results is
the humbling realization that we
don't have all the answers, and
that paying attention to what our
hosts tell us about their needs,
culture and ideas is the real key
to building cooperative relation-
ships. We learn as much from
them as they do from us.
Global opinion of the United
States is at an all-time low, thanks
to the Bush administration's uni-
lateralist approach to U.S. foreign
policy. Europe is unsupportive,
the Middle East is destabilized
and quagmires engulf Iraq and
Afghanistan. Most nations of the
world do not see us as a force for
peace, and it is because we do not
give them the chance to.
Fortunately, when people
abroad see Peace Corps volun-
teers helping to rebuild their
communities and their infra-
structure, it creates goodwill
between countries and their
people.
Peace Corps volunteers are far
less threatening than uniformed
Americans with guns. The United
States should Increase the size
and funding of the Peace Corps.
Instead of shipping out more
troops around the world, we
should send more Peace Corps
volunteers. They may be the best
antidote to terrorism and hatred.
1 want a Rosa Parks Road, a Pope John Paul Lane and
a Mother Teresa Boulevard. Can we work those into
a Greenville map too?
The magazine selection at the SRC is horrible. I pay
enough money to the school to help support SRC
services. I think I deserve something other than
Time and Better Homes and Gardens to read!
My friend is having a hard time with life lately and
wants Xanax to make her feel mellowed out, but
what she really needs is Prozac so she'll stop moping
around and get on with life already.
If ECU wants to gain ranks in the academic world
so much, why don't they start by offering a 24-hour
campus library?
My roommate says that my other roommate and I
are heartless because we don't coddle her dog the
way she does. I'm sorry, but last time I checked she
was not our dog. She should seriously just be glad
we let it loose and that we're nice to it at all.
So normally I'm a huge fan of the cold weather and
snow, but let me tell you - with gas heating, I'm
i dying for it to be hot again. I just can't take any
! more high electric bills!
Look, if you are writing an e-mail to me about
class, first tell me what freaking class you are talk-
ing about. Just saying "I missed class on Tuesday.
What's due?" does not tell me who you are or what
class you're from!
The food at West End was so good on Oscar Night.
Why can't they cook like that all the time?
To the idiots who insist on playing 'music' as loud
as possible from their cars driving up and down
Campus Hill each day, grow up. Nobody wants to
hear your crappy music andor50 sound system you
bought at Wal-Mart. What you're doing is commonly
referred to as noise pollution. I hope you go deaf.
Busch Gardens will always trump Disney World, no
matter how cool Space Mountain is.
Heck, why stop at renaming Fifth Street. Why not
rename the whole school MLK and change our
mascot to the soul birds?
I'm sorry, but if you're dumb enough to show the
world on Facebook or MySpace you did something
illegal, you shouldn't complain when the police
show up at your door because you posted a picture of
you underage with a beer in your hand. Darwinism
comes into effect somewhere, and better to learn it
in college than in the real world.
To the person who wrote the rant about dead bodies
still in the streets of New Orleans, please write
another rant with the Web address where I can read
that article. I don't expect a response, but if it is
actually out there, I would love to read it. TEC, how
irresponsible of you to put that in the paper. Some
people might actually believe this sort of nonsense.
Would it be too much to ask the library to update
their computer mice to the optical ones? Or even
snirtle clean the roller balls?
I vote Fifth Street to be renamed to Robert E. Lee Street.
OK here's the deal. It's getting hot out now, so show-
ering is a must. Please don't come to class smelling
like you have been dead for 10 years!
Beware of those apartments that advertise free "high
speed" wireless Internet. You get what you pay for
- nothing!
I'm too lazy to get up and rant myself, so my friend
is writing this.
Why do people open their doors into other people's
car? I'm sorry that your car is a piece of crap and you
I are jealous of my beautiful car, but that is no reason
to cause harm to my car. It's called karma. What goes
; around comes around, and one day I hope you have
something beautiful that sonieone destroys.
To the girls who walk in groups on the sidewalk
I and take up the whole thing, learn some respect
' and give a little space for the one person walking
the other way.
! About the article on overrated one-night stands,
you shouldn't assume that the guys are using the
girls. People (male and female) don't always regret
one night stands.
Give them an inch and they will take a foot.
Yay, we finally have a yearbook again! I've heard
that it may be a little more risque than your normal
high school yearbook though
Based on TC's article, you'd think that the recent
Career Fair wasn't a colossal waste of time for 95
percent of all majors.
To the car alarm that goes off every hour on College
Hill, please stop. It's really annoying to listen to you.
Wright Place has a sanitation grade of a "B Men-
denhall's Destination 360 has a grade of 90. Please
look in to this. This sucks for people with meal plans
who have to eat here!
I am so sick of people not washing their hands
after they get done using the bathroom. There is no
reason for me to wash my hands when I am about
to grab the same door handle that your nasty hands
just contaminated. Bathroom etiquette should have
been taught to you a long time ago. The sinks and
soap aren't just there for looks.
Maybe there would be less crime around campus
if I weren't sitting here in Joyner library watching
an ECU police officer flirt with a security guard for
over an hour.
Here's an idea, lets change the name of all Fifth
Street and MLK to Malcolm X drive!
Can we have less baby mama drama in the SGA please?
Beauty is overrated! Anyone can look gorgeous with
make-up.

Preview of 'Real

The place to be this
season
SARAH CAMPBELL
STAFF WRITER
Drama, sex, drinking, lies,
fighting and friendship are just
a few of the exciting elements
that combine to make MTV's
pioneering reality show, "The
Real World a must-see hour
of television that leaves viewers
craving more. Fans of the show
won't be disappointed with the
latest location for the filming of
the 17th season, Key West, Fla.
For 16 seasons, MTV's "The
Real World" has entertained
viewers with the concept of "the
true story of seven strangers,
picked to live in a house and have
their lives taped to find out what
happens when people stop being
polite and start getting real
"The Real World: Key West"
will offer the roommates some
unique challenges. The first of
these challenges was battling
Mother Nature in the form of
three hurricanes - Katrina, Rita
and Wilma. However, Mother
Nature didn't stand a chance
in the wake of their obligation
to open and run Mystic Sunless
Tanning studio, a first for Key
West.
However, as is expected in
true "Real World" fashion, the
roommates managed to cause
plenty of trouble when they set
out to party the night away on
the strip at hot spots such as Fat
Tuesday's and Lazy Gecko.
"The Real World" isn't all fun
and games - it also places focus
on issues that are often brushed
under the rug by our society. The
reality of the show echoes the
personal battles that not only
each roommate faces, but also
we as individuals face in our
everyday lives.
Since its premiere in 1992,
"The Real World" has put a
national spotlight on societal
issues such as AIDSHIV, sexual
orientation, racial tension, eating
disorders and alcoholism. This
season, two of the roommates
will face a battle with anorexia
and anger management prob-
lems.
Whether you've been watch-
ing "The Real World" for years,
just caught on to the craze or
have never seen a single episode,
"The Real World: Key West" is
sure to quench your appetite
for drama. No matter what goes
on throughout the season, the
diversity of the roommates will
definitely play an important role
in keeping things real.

Paul Walker, the lead character in the film, plays Joey Gazelle, an Italian lower-level bagman.
Cursing, shooting and
10-year-olds
SCOTTY WILLIAMS
SENIOR WRITER
Shuffling into the theater
for a 10 o'clock showing of
Running Scared, this reviewer
was not exactly excited. A
particular pet peeve of mine in
movies is when a movie doesn't
proclaim what it is in the
trailer. The theatrical trailer
for this movie was a barrage of
bullets flying, people shooting
and angry voices with nothing
to declare about a plot or a
storyline, and I wasn't sure
what exactly the title implied.
A few minutes into the
movie, the subject matter
became more clear - once
you've seen it, you'll be run-
ning scared out of the theater,
haunted by the thought that
you actually had to give up
your money to see it.
Paul Walker is the lead in
this movie, playing a character
named Joey Gazelle. Walker's
character is supposed to be
Italian (I say "supposed to be"
because everyone who was
supposed to be Italian in this
movie slipped in and out of
an Italian accent like a pair
of khakis) and working in the
mob as a lower-level bagman,
essentially. Gazelle's job is to
dispose of hot pieces (other-
wise known as guns used to kill
people) and cover up things.
After one especially charged
deal goes bad and some cops
die, Gazelle has two pieces
to hide. Things go especially
wrong when a friend of his
son's gets the gun and shoots
his father. The rest of this
119-minute movie is Gazelle
chasing the gun and the little
boy through a sea of profan
ity, nudity and even child
molesters.
Movie reviewers need to
invent a new phrase to describe
the language in this movie.
Being a veteran and fan of
movies like Fight Club, where
every other word is profane,
I can honestly say this is the
most profane movie I have ever
seen. I would tell you the exact
number of occurrences of the
F-bomb in this movie, but that
would mean I have to go back
and see it again to count. The
potty-mouthed mobsters and
Russians in this movie easily
topped 100 times. If anything,
there were more curse words in
this movie than minutes.
When characters aren't
raining a sea of profanities,
they're shooting each other in
gratuitous scenes of bloodshed
or groping each other's clearly
visible private parts. Oh yeah,
and two preteen children are
main characters starring in
the midst of this debauchery.
When you can't watch a movie
without your conscience and
ethos sitting on your head, that
says something.
If there is one thing viewers
should learn about this film, it
is that Paul Walker is not fit for
a leading role in a movie. After
watching The Fast and the Furi-
ous and Into the Blue, the public
should know this. Walker's
character goes off to commit
horrible actions, usually with
one of the two children in tow,
stomps around and cusses at
women, children and big hairy
men, but apparently has a soft
side. We'll contact the FBI to
go looking for it.
The movie's one selling
point was a bevy of special
effects and intense camera
work, which is slightly impres-
sive, but only from the stance
of special camera effects work.
Hollywood needs to realize
that no gun has the firepower
to send a person flying 15 feet
across a room, no matter how
cool it might look.
This movie is supposed to
have a plot, but nothing is all
that discernable in terms of a
plot. The action of the movie
takes so many turns, you're
guessing at the end. The acting
in the movie is forgettable, and
you can't remember a single
interesting piece of acting 15
minutes after you walk out
of the movie. The only thing
you will remember as you

Heavy Rotation: From inside WZMB
Narrowing it down so
you don't have to
JOHN BOSCO
STAFF WRITER
It's hard for me to believe, but
it's already March.
When I started this column
in January, it was with the wrap-
up of the best records of 2005
that you hadn't heard. I made a
point that one of my goals was to
expose you to music that you've
maybe never heard but probably
should give a chance.
Well, it's about time I gave
my recommendations for some
albums released this year that
are worth checking out. Lucky
for you, they come just in time to
enjoy during spring break.
Neko Case - Fox Confessor
Brings the Flood. Without a
doubt, the focus of this album is
Case's amazing voice. Her range
is somewhere amid the greats like
Nancy Sinatra, Patsy Cline and
Judy Garland. Her pristine vocal
performance fits perfectly with
the modern musical arrange-
ments on this album. If you are
looking for an uncommon sound
that doesn't push you away with
eccentricity, look no further. I
recommend you get two copies,
one for you and one to pass on
to a friend.
The Elected - Sun, Sun,
Sun. Rilo Kiley's Blake Sennett
takes a break from the poppy
sound Rilo fans may be familiar
with and moves toward a more
singer-songwriter style with his
band, The Elected. The maturity
and complexity of this album
is surprising and enjoyable. I've
already written the full review
on this one, so it should come as
no surprise that it's making the
Best-of-2006-So-Far list.
NOFX - Never Trust A
Hippy EP. If 1 had to admit
one guilty pleasure, it would
be NOFX. Actually, there's no
guilt involved. They are, and
always have been, on the cut-
W7W1? 915
ting edge of what punk music is
and should be - political, gritty,
hilarious and creative. They
bring some of the most amazing
vocal harmonies I've ever heard
to a genre that rarely considers
them an option. As self-taught
musicians, they attack politics
and extremist bands like Pro-
poghandi with good points and
they don't back down. They
stand up for their beliefs and
should be respected for that.
They are the epitome of punk,
and Never Trust A Hippy is sure to
make religious hypocrites cringe.
Rachael Cantu - Run All
Night. I admit it, I'm a sucker for
Tegan and Sara (you try listen-
ing to "Walking with a Ghost"
and not hum it all day long).
So when I got wind that Tegan
was doing vocals on a Rachael
Cantu track, I had to give it a
listen. Hun All Night may only be
eight tracks long, but I'm already
a Rachael Cantu fan. Though
nothing here steps out of the
bounds of anything I've ever
heard before, something about
the album sticks. Last week it was
the station's number one charted
album, and that doesn't surprise
me one bit.
I kl ant - The Black Magic
Show. For anyone who might
have read the Pitchfork review
of Elefant's new album and
decided it wouldn't be worth
their time, I beg you to think
again. While Pitchfork usually
gets it right, they were way off
with The Black Magic Show. Ele-
fant managed to take their sound
one step beyond their last release,
Sunlight Makes Me Paranoid, with
a great-sounding follow-up.
Unlike their last album, this
collection isn't entirely love
songs. Some tracks fall short,
but overall, the songs are well-
composed and have good hooks.
The Strokes -1 list Impres-
sions Of Earth. Come on. If
you haven't heard about the
Strokes by now, you are missing
out on a huge chunk of good
popular music. Rarely do bands
as good as The Strokes get as
much airplay as they deserve.
Their new album, released in
early January, continues their
climb to the top of rock music.
Personally, it seems to me the
feel of this album is less garage-
rock than their past releases;
The Strokes just seem more
aware of themselves as a band.
Beth Orton - Comfort of
Strangers. Initially, 1 wasn't sure
how I felt about this album I
popped it in and thought, "Great,
another folk singer-songwriter
looking for some airplay Luckily,
it didn't end there. After giving
it a full listen, the melodies on
this album stuck with me and
her voice did, too. Orton's vocal
prowess is shown on Comfort of
Strangers - this album has sparse
and minimal arrangements, but
the beauty in her voice and
her knack for melody shines
through.
Hopefully you found some-
thing on this list that you might
enjoy. As always, be sure to tune
in to WZMB 91.3 as we continue
to put the rad back into radio.

GUitar from page B1
Premiering at SXS March
12, "Air Guitar Nation" is a
feature-length documentary
about the year that air guitar
swept the United States.
From New York to Los
Angeles and all the way to north-
ern Finland, "Air Guitar Nation"
chronicles the rise of the U.S. Air
Guitar Championships through
the eyes of former world cham-
pions, enthusiasts, media and
through the personal journeys of
our top competitors. "Air Guitar
Nation" is directed by Alexandra
Lipsitz and produced by Dan Cut-
forth and Jane Lipsitz. Cutforth
and Lipsitz are also executive pro-
ducers of television shows such
as NBC's "Last Comic Standing
Bravo's "Project Runway" and
HBO's "Project Greenlight
The competitions will con-
sist of two rounds. In the first
round, competitors perform to a
song of their choice. In round
two, the top competitors from
round one perform to a sur-
prise compulsory song. In each
round, contestants perform for
one minute to their songs and
are then judged on a combina-
tion of technical expertise, stage
presence and "airness The most
important regulation that the
contestants must follow is that all
guitars have to be invisible.
The 2005 U.S. Air Guitar
Champion is Fatima "the Rock-
ness Monster" Hoang, with the
2004 and 2003 champions being
MiRi "Sonyk-Rok" Park and
David "C-Diddy" Jung. All three
victors possess the technical
wizardry, stage presence and the
ever-elusive "airness" required to
succeed in this competition.
Air guitar can be viewed as
musical self-expression, a com-
petitive sport or a form of perfor-
mance art. Whatever the reason,
air guitar is so embedded in the
fabric of American life that it has
become an almost instinctual
response. When the right riff is
heard in a groovy tune, for many
of us, air guitar simply happens.

Diamond Bucs to host
Stony Brook this weekend
Red-hot Smith looking to
continue RBI assault
BRENT WYNNE
SENIOR WRITER
After walloping Duke for the
second time this season, a 17-4
beat down Tuesday that included
catcher Jake Smith going off for
a grand slam and six RBI, the
Pirates will return to action
this weekend when they host
2004 Kinston Regional opponent
Stony Brook.
Smith, who his hitting .386
with three homers and 20 RBI
this season, was named Confer-
ence USA's Hitter of the Week
for his efforts during last week's
games. He batted .444 over a four
game stretch, three of which were
Pirate victories, and also blasted
a home run, two doubles and
collected 10 RBI.
Smith is proving not only to
be one of the elite hitters in the
conference, but also one of the
most feared arms behind the
plate in the nation. Runners have
tried 14 times to steal against
the senior catcher, and Smith
has successfully gunned down
eight would-be stealers. That's
an alarming success rate of 57
percent, a percentage that most
big league catchers can't claim
to have.
Head Coach Matt Senk and
his Stony Brook Seawolves will
look to change the luck of Pirate
opponents against Smith, as
well as try to steal a win or two
from the Diamond Bucs in Clark-
LeClair Stadium.
In their first and only series
of the season, the Seawolves
traveled to Orlando, Fla. to take
on Central Florida. The Golden
Knights swept the series 1-0, 8-3
and 5-4 to drop Stony Brook to
0-3 to start the 2006 season.
Don't let these three losses
fool you. The Seawolves were
highly competitive throughout
the weekend, with some great
pitching and defense. Where
Brook failed to capitalize was at
the plate, where they managed
just 18 hits, an average of six a
game, and a team batting aver-
age of .182.
Isidro Fortuna leads the Sea-
wolves at the dish. He leads
the team with a .429 average,
including two doubles, a triple
and a run scored. Freshman
Steven Mazzurco is batting .375
with a triple and a RBI. The only
other Brook player batting .300
or better is Chris Sipp, with
a .300 average and a RBI. Jon
Pasieka and Robert Dyer have
both chipped in two "BI.
The lack of offense has put
Stony Brook's pitching staff in
a near impossible situation to
win games. Kris Bakey started
game one for the Seawolves
and pitched masterfully for six
innings, allowing just three hits
and no runs, but Brook's offense
put up goose eggs, falling to
the Golden Knights 1-0. Bakey
got a no decision despite being
brilliant.
Stony Brook ran out to an
early 1-0 lead in game two, before
starter Brian Murtagh collapsed
in the second, giving up six runs
and six hits to allow UCF to seize
control of the contest. The bright
spot for the rest of the game
was the pitching of Mike Errigo.
Errigo stopped the bleeding for
the most part of his 5.2 innings.
He allowed five hits and only
one run. Don't be surprised if
Head Coach Matt Senk decides
to go with Errigo as a starter this
weekend against the Pirates.
Matt Restivo started and
pitched five innings in game
three, and had it not been for
a fielding error in the fourth
inning that allowed UCF to score
three unearned runs, he would've
shut out the Golden Knights for
the five innings he was in. He
gave up three hits and struck
out three.
Bakey, Errigo and Restivo will
be the key for the Seawolves' staff
if they hope to win a game or
games against ECU this weekend.
While it's obvious that this
isn't the same team that won
the American East and gave the
Pirates all they could handle in
the Kinston Regional in 2004,
the philosophy is the same. This
team will be scrappy and fight
for every run they get or give.
Expect some very good pitching
and solid defense along with a lot
of small ball and manufacturing
runs. The Seawolves will come
into Greenville focused on leav-
ing with wins.
Game time Friday is 3 p.m.
The Pirates and Seawolves battle
again Saturday and Sunday at
1 p.m.

Skip Holtz spent last spring
learning players' names and posi-
tions while trying to install his
offense. In year two, Holtz plans
for things to run much smoother.
"We don't have to put the
names on their helmets so it's not
'hey 82, come here said Holtz
about the differences between
last season and this.
"We actually know these
guys a little bit more now. You're
going out there with a much
more advanced agenda. Last year,
we took almost all spring to put
everything in. This year, you can
almost roll the balls out there.
You can say 'OK, we're going to
put in half the offense in day
one and half the offense in day
two' because they know what to
do. We're not going to be teach-
ing what to do, we're going to be
teaching how to do it
All kidding aside, Holtz has
plenty of business items to cover
during the NCAA sanctioned 15
practices. He and his coaching
staff must fill holes on the offen-
sive line, at fullback, tight end
and linebacker. Holtz must also
juggle the newest recruits and
nagging injuries while overseeing
fierce position battles.
Holtz announced an addition
to his coaching staff by the hiring
Don Yanowsky as tight endsspe-
cial teams coach. Yanowsky, who
coached at ECU during 2000-01,
most recently served on the Duke
staff for three years. Yanowsky
was the defensive line coach
during his previous stint with
ECU. He replaces Greg McMahon,
who left to become the assistant
special teams coach for the New
Orleans Saints.
Quarterbacks
Three-year starter James
Pinkney will undergo his first
spring practice under Holtz after
missing last season with aca-
demic trouble. The threesome
of sophomore Patrick Pinkney,
redshirt freshmen Rob Kass and
Brett Clay are in a heated battle
for the backup slot. The younger
Pinkney will be healthy for the
first time in his career while
Kass ran the scout team during
the fall.
Offensive line
The offensive line was the
largest question mark follow-
ing the fall with the loss of
three seniors. But according to
Holtz and offensive line coach
Steve Shankweiler, the staff has
already tentatively penciled
in four starters. Josh Coffman
and Eric Graham will probably
man the tackle slots while Matt
Butler and Terence Campbett
will likely play guard. However,
Holtz reiterated that the center
position is wide open as former
defensive tackle Fred Hicks moves
across the ball. Senior Thomas
Wingenbach and grayshirt Larry
Lease are in contention. Senior
Lance Neisz will be held out of
contact drills until after spring
break while last season's backup
center, Drew Sutton, won't make
it back until the fall. Redshirt
freshman Jonathan Battle and
midseason transfer Andrew Farr
will add depth. Davon Drew, up
to 242 pounds after being moved
from quarterback, is the likely
starter at tight end. Jay Sonnhal-
ter is the only other tight end
with game experience because
Shawn Levesque decided to forgo
his senior season for personal
reasons.
Running backs
Two-year starter Chris John-
son will be pushed by sophomore
Dominique Lindsey and senior
Brandon Fractious. Fractious will
look to solve his fumbling stigma
while Johnson will try to build
momentum from his 684-yard
season. Robert Tillman, used
as a hybrid running backwide
receiver in 2005 remains sus-

Poker events: Buddies think they know when to hold 'em
Rabin, left, and Beck offer collegiate poker tournaments of Texas Hold-em
(KRT) The bond between
buddies Craig Rabin and Jason
Beck is obvious, particularly in the
way they tend to finish the dan-
gling end of each other's sentences.
The way Beck tells it, he called
Rabin as soon as he got the idea
in 2004 to start a business that
would host free college poker
tournaments at which students
would compete for scholarships.
It didn't matter that the pair
was separated by more than a
thousand miles, with Beck in
college in Miami and Rabin at Illi-
nois State University in Normal.
Rabin picks up the story: "1
was like, 'This is a great idea So
I had this business class that was
on small business ownership. We
had to create a fake company. But
I was thinking, why create a fake
hot dog stand when we have got
this great idea?"
Since 8th grade, Beck and
Rabin have talked about running
a business together. Now, less than
a year after graduating from col-
lege with business degrees, they
are hosting free traveling Texas
Hold 'Em poker tournaments at
six universities. In April they will
hold an online national champi-
onship with a scholarship prize
pool of up to $20,000.
The budding entrepreneurs
have succeeded in avoiding the
corporate 9-to-5, but they are
entering controversial territory in
bringing a "legitimized" version of
poker onto university campuses.
Beck and Rabin aim to ride
the poker wave; there has been an
enormous growth in the game's
popularity in general and in col-
lege poker, in particular, during
the past few years.
There are about 3 million
young people, between ages 14
and 22, who gamble at cards on a
weekly basis, according to a recent
study by the Annenberg Public
Policy Center at the University of
Pennsylvania. About half of the
males attending college gamble
at cards at least once a month, the
research showed.
Long a popular pastime, now
poker events on television have
glamorized the game and those
who play it.
Beck, who worked in the Uni-
versity of Miami's intramural
department and played poker in
college, said he couldn't help but
notice students' growing interest in
the game. He said he thought schol-
arship tournaments hosted mainly
by university intramural depart-
ments and funded by local and
national sponsorships would allow
students to enjoy the excitement
of the game without the troubling
aspects of gambling for money.
But as popular as it is, college
poker is controversial, particularly
when it comes to university-spon-
sored events. University officials
have been criticized for being slow
to recognize and react to problem
student gambling in the same way
they have to drug and alcohol abuse.
Legal gaming is heavily regu-
lated and Internet gambling is ille-
gal in Illinois, though anyone with
a credit card, online access and a
search engine can quickly find a
place to play poker or other games.
Keith Whyte, executive direc-
tor of the National Council on
Problem Gambling, says this
operation may be a problem.
"The concern we have is that
they are sending the message that

CAR
(AP) For Jason Fraser, a
one-and-one was more likely to
mean operations on both of his
knees on the same day than a trip
to the free-throw line.
Curtis Sumpter's MRI exam
revealed a torn ACL that earned
him a DNP against North Caro-
lina in last season's NCAA tour-
nament.
Now it's Allan Ray's turn to
learn if the give-and-go means
all he can do in his final home
game is give some high-fives
and go to the bench because of
a sprained knee.
Say this for Villanova's senior
class, these players know almost
as much about X-rays as they do
about game film.
And when the group is intro-
duced before their home finale
Wednesday against St. John's,
the seniors better not forget to
thank the doctors, trainers and
physical therapists, as well as
Mom and Dad.
But this group didn't come
to Villanova to earn an MD. The
quartet of Fraser, Sumpter, Ray
and Randy Foye arrived together
as coach Jay Wright's first prized
recruiting class and were deter-
mined to return the Wildcats to
college basketball's elite level.
"If we're going to make this
program go, it had to start with
us said Foye, Villanova's lead-
ing scorer.
"We took it upon ourselves
that we've got to do this
All four played a part in
making fourth-ranked Villanova
(22-3, 12-2 Big East) a national
championship contender again.
The senior night game might
or might not include Ray, who
sprained his knee in Sunday's
loss at Connecticut. The game
definitely won't include Sumpter,
who has missed all season recov-
ering from two knee surgeries.
"That was the plan from the
beginning, to go out together
Sumpter said.
"But things happen along
the way
Instead of putting together
two 10-game winning streaks
with a four-guard lineup, the
Wildcats could have been charg-
ing down the stretch with four
senior starters. But injuries and
operations slowed the careers of
Sumpter and Fraser.
The 6-foot-9, 225-pound
Fraser was supposed to be the
best of the bunch, coming to
the Main Line as a McDonald's
Ail-American after leading Ami-
tyville High School to four
straight New York State Class B
titles. He was athletic, could run
well for a big man and block
shots, and was considered tal-
ented enough to make the leap to
the NBA right out of high school.
There isn't much leaping or
jumping anywhere these days.
Fraser has been plagued by
injury since he was a freshman,
missing four games his first year
because of a stress fracture in his
foot and three others when he
was suspended because of phone-
card violations. He missed eight
more games with a broken left
foot as a sophomore, and four
more last season with a broken
bone in his right hand.

pended for the spring semester
and will not participate in spring
practice. Two former quarter-
backs, Kort Shankweiler and
Pat Dosh, will compete for the
fullback position. Shankweiler
moves back to fullback, a position
he played two seasons ago while
Dosh will be used as more of an
H-back.
Wide receivers
Record setting senior Aundrae
Allison is still recovering from a
knee injury suffered in the season
finale and will sit out much of
spring ball. Juniors Phillip Henry,
Booby Good, Juwon Crowell and
Steven Rogers will compete with
seniors Kevin Roach and Will
Bland. Redshirt freshmen Kyle
Johnson and Alex Taylor will vie
for time as well. Wide receivers'
coach Donnie Kirkpatrick has
plenty of depth to work with,
but will try to develop the speedy
wideout he lacked in 2005.
Defensive line
Marcus Hands is still recover-
ing from shoulder surgery that
prematurely ended his 2005
season delaying his return for
the fall. Senior Shauntae Hunt
is penciled in as the defensive
end opposite Hands. But push-
ing Hunt will be redshirt fresh-
man Scotty Robinson and junior
Wendell Chavis. The interior
is thin, however, with Dontre
Brown, Brandon Setzer and Mark
Robinson vying for the two
starting slots at defensive tackle.
Depth, though, will be an issue
as grayshirt Johnnie McCoy is
the only other scholarship player
practicing.
Linebackers
Four of the five top lineback-
ers from 2005 graduated so defen-
sive coordinator Greg Hudson
was forced haul in immediate
talent. Aside from Pierre Bell,
who will not practice due to a
foot injury, JUCOs will probably
lead the ranks throughout the
spring. Lackawanna College
teammates Danny Muhwezi and
Orlando Farrow along with Fred
Wilson will compete with juniors
Durwin Lamb and Quentin
Cotton. Sophomores Jarrett Wig-
gins and Zach Slate are also in the
mix. Depth won't be a problem
as the three starting slots are a
free-for-all.
Secondary
Jamar Flournoy was the slated
strong safety starter in 2005
before a season-long suspension
forced a redshirt. The senior
rejoins Kyle Chase and free safety
Pierre Parker, both of whom
saw significant playing time in
2005. Redshirt freshmen Van
Eskeridge and Chris Mattocks

gambling is a good way to make
money Whyte said.
"No university would support
a college drinking or smoking
tournament. So we find the pres-
ence of these tournaments odd
Rabin said some university
officials still say "no" to Collegiate
Poker Tour Events, refusing to
have their names and reputations
associated with poker.
Others wanted to see how
well the tournaments succeeded
before they decided whether to
climb on board.
Still, the idea is gaining accep-
tance: From six this year, the duo
says they are planning to host
between 25 and 30 tournaments
in the next academic year.
The first tournament was held
last November at Illinois State Uni-
versity and pulled in about 350
students. Nate Tierney, a junior
marketing major, won the event
and will compete with others in
the April online championship.
"I surprised myself, that is for
sure 20-year-old Tierney said,
calling himself a good, but not an
expert poker player.
"When I told my folks about
winning, they said, "Put down
your books and work on your
poker game But of course, they
were just joking
Sam Kelner, coordinator of
intramural sports at St. Louis
University, said he believes the
Collegiate Poker Tour Events have
many positive benefits.
"When I found it was a non-
alcoholic event and there is no
exchange of money and no charge
for students, I thought that it was
the greatest bet Kelner said.
"Let's be honest. It is a Satur-
day night and students are going
to go out and drink. We are always
searching for ways (in which)
students can be in an alcohol-free,
safe environment
These days, Beck and Rabin
spend most of their days in Rabin's
parents' basement in Buffalo
Grove, 111 looking for additional
companies to act as sponsors to
provide everything from scholar-
ship money to food and prizes for
the events. The biggest challenge
for the fledgling entrepreneurs
has been the scholarship prize,
which was once promoted to be
as much as $85,000 an ambitious
sum they never reached.
Every cent they make is being
poured into their business ven-
ture, and they both still live with
their parents.
"I have the shortest commute
of anyone in Buffalo Grove joked
Rabin.

"He's been as patient as any
player I've ever had Wright said.
Fraser had five surgeries on
his knees while at Villanova,
including double knee surgery
in April 2003, and seven over-
all. Instead of reaching his star
potential, he's a role player this
season, averaging 3.8 points in
17 minutes.
The number he cherishes
most, though, is 25. Fraser hasn't
missed a game this season.
"God's truly blessed me this
year to allow me to play basket-
ball and practice from start to
finish Fraser said. "
The worst thing has been a
bloody nose, and that's a very
good thing "
In a perfect scenario, Fraser
might have formed a beefier,
taller frontcourt with Sumpter.
Considered the Wildcats most
versatile player, Sumpter tore
the ACL in his left knee in a
second-round NCAA tournament
game last season and missed
the season-ending loss against
North Carolina. Then, he tore
the ACL again during a routine
practice drill in October, needing
a second surgery.
"There's no doubt in my mind
I want to be out there, there's no
doubt in their mind that they want
me out there, but I've got to do
what's best for me Sumpter said.
Sumpter recently was cleared
to participate in individual drills,
but has not practiced or scrim-
maged. He said Tuesday he will
take a medical red shirt and
return next season as part of a
nucleus that includes starters
Mike Nardi, Kyle Lowry and Will
Sheridan.
"I wanted to go out there and
help my team as much as I can
Sumpter said.
"Being out there was what I
really wanted to do
Sumpter will have a limited
role on senior night. He might
not be able to stomach observing
his classmates celebrate know-
ing he should have been part
of the ceremony. And, it will be
difficult not having his parents
with him.
"We're going to do it nicely,
so he'll do it with me and he'll
be in the pictures with his class-
mates Wright said.
