Bridge to remain closed through summer
Road construction
continues on 14th Street
BENJAMIN CORMACK
STAFF WRITER
While many have been eagerly
waiting for the reopening of the
14th Street bridge near Charles
Boulevard, their wait will have
to continue until the end of the
summer.
"We're hoping the bridge will
be finished in August said Thomas
Tysinger, director of the Greenville
Public Works Department.
Construction on the bridge has
been going on for months. While
it has been frustrating for many,
it has not been without necessity.
According to Tysinger, fhe bridge
had to be replaced due to a federal
and state law, enforced by the North
Carolina Department of Transpor-
tation, which requires all bridges
in North Carolina to be inspected
every two years. The sufficiency

With oil prices rising, scientists are now turning to ethanol as an alternative way to fuel vehicles.
Ethanol make gas cheaper?
Exploring alternative
fuels such as Ethanol
LEE SCHWARZ
STAFF WRITER
As oil prices continue to soar
and with no end in sight to the
surging prices, many compa-
nies are looking to ethanol as a
means of combating oil prices.
Ethanol is essentially alcohol
that is fermented from corn. Corn
is ground into a very fine powder
then mixed with water and
sugar before the yeast ferments
creating ethanol. A small amount
of gas is then added to make it
undrinkable because the resulting
mixture is about 10 alcohol,
which is about twice as power-
ful as most U.S. domestic beers.
Because corn is needed in
the process, demand for corn is
expected to rise 34 percent in the
next year. When factoring the
extra demand and the effect of
the drought in Texas and Okla-
homa, corn prices are steadily
rising. However, the new demand
should also encourage others to
grow more corn as another use
for corn has been found.

The SGA has decided to have
eligible congressmen meet during the
summer to serve the student body
during the summer sessions.
According to Ben Wyche, speaker
of the congress, any congressman that
has the desire to participate and is
enrolled in summer sessions is eligible.
Eligibility also depends on
whether or not the student served
as a congressman during the fall and
spring semesters.
In the past, general assembly elec-
tions were held in the fall. They are
now held in the spring and all con-
gressmen that were elected will be able
to participate in summer congress.
The purpose for having SGA
available to students .during the
summer is to be accessible to the
student body for emergency summer
issues, according to Wyche.
Three main goals have been set
for the summer by SGA. These goals
include approving annual funding
that was recommended by the appro-
priations committee in the spring,
clearly defining the funding board
and clarifying the funding manual.
According to Wyche, in the past
the funding board allowed umbrella
organizations such as the Graduate
Student Advisory Council or the four
Greek branches to ask for an amount
of money to fund the group.
After looking closer at the fund-
ing board, SGA decided that it needed
more clarity, according Wyche.
The third goal was chosen because
the funding manual has been revised

One of the most explosive movie
musicals in recent memory now bursts
onto the live stage. When Ren and
his mother move from Chicago to a

for the inevitable adjustment period
at his new high school. What he isn't
prepared for are the rigorous local
laws, including a ban on dancing. The
ban is the brainchild of a preacher
determined to exercise the control
over the town youth that he cannot
command in his own home.To the
rockin' rhythm of its Oscar-nominated
top 40 score (the soundtrack album
reached number one on the Billboard
charts and has sold over 15 million
copies!) to which new, dynamic
songs have been added, Footloose
celebrates the wisdom of listening to
young people, guiding them with a

Enron executives Lay and Skilling found guilty
What happens now
for convicted Enron
executives?
LEE SCHWARZ
STAFF WRITER
Former Enron Chief Execu-
tive Officers Ken Lay and Jef-
frey Skilling have just been con-
victed of 29 counts of fraud,
conspiracy, and insider trading.
The trial lasted four months and
the jury deliberated for six days.
"I firmly believe I am innocent
of the charges against me, as I have
said from day one Lay said after
being informed of his conviction.
"If I were a CEO today, 1 would
say it sends a very dangerous mes-
sage. It basically makes an innocent
act criminal
The convictions carry a maxi-
mum penalty of 165 years of
imprisonment for Lay and 185
years for Skilling.
"This brings closure for
some people said former Enron
employee Chris Jones.
The actions of Lay, Skilling
and former Enron C.F.O. Andrew
Falstow, who is already serving a
prison term for his role, destroyed
$2.1 billion in stock market value
and cost 5,600 jobs at a time when
the stock and job markets were
already suspect.
"I wanted very, very badly to
believe what they were saying, very
much so said juror Wendy Vaughan.
However, it was not enough.
"To say that you didn't know
what was going on in your own
company is not the right thing
said juror Freddy Delgado.
"The ones that lost their secu-
rity or their retirement nothing that
happened today is going to bring
that back for them. They're not
going to get their retirement money
or their security back said govern-
ment prosecutor Sean Berkowitz.
Skilling and Lay took home
approximately $375 million in
compensation and insider trading
moves.
The 2005 movie Fun with Dick
and Jane was based on a man who
lost his job in a similar situation
to Enron and the movie even men-
tions the name Enron at the end.
The movie had a solution for the
former employees who lost their
life savings and retirement in that
Dick, played by Jim Carey, tricked
the former C.E.O played by Alec
Baldwin and whom has been said
by some to resemble Jeffrey Skill-
ing, into funding the company's
bankrupt pension plan thereby
giving hope to thousands.
Would jail time or financial
restitution do more to right the
wrongs of these executives?
Enron's collapse had a signifi-
cant affect on the U.S. economy, c
It was about four months after the
911 terrorist attacks when Enron
declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
The U.S. economy was already reel-
ing from the bursting of the tech
bubble. The job market was getting
rougher and the United States was
at war with the Taliban regime in
Afghanistan. Not only did Enron
declare bankruptcy but it was
also learned that Enron's auditor

that Enron was forced to hide.
Arthur Andersen was once one
of the Big Five accounting firms
in the United States with 85,000
employees. Its connection with
Enron destroyed the company
and it now has 200 employees

loss of jobs made the job market
for accountants very tough par-

produces about 4 billion gallons
of ethanol per year and in the
next seven years that amount
should double. Considering that
the United States consumed 140
billion gallons of gasoline last year,
it seems that ethanol production
must be significantly increased in
order to lessen U.S. dependence on
foreign oil and to stretch the life
of fossil fuels. Currently, U.S. cars
are running on gasoline that is 10
percent ethanol. In the Midwest
there are as stations which sell E85
which is about 85 percent ethanol.
Ethanol is renewable, burns
cleaner and can be made domesti-
cally, but it has its disadvantages,
such as transportation, because it
cannot travel via pipeline like oil
because of ethanol's tendency to
pick up impurities along the way.
Also ethanol is not quite as potent
as gasoline, which will mean less
efficient fuel economy.
There has been an argument
that the delivery of ethanol would
be less efficient because of the
amount of fossil fuels required to
deliver it. However that argument
is being refuted with Energy Sci-
entist Michael Wang saying, "The
energy used for each unit of etha-
nol produced has been reduced by
about half
Generally it takes about 50 per-
cent more fossil fuel to deliver oil
then it does ethanol. Despite the
lower transportation costs etha-
nol is actually raising prices right
now due to a high demand and
an infrastructure that is not yet
able to make sufficient quantities
of ethanol to meet such demand.
A basic knowledge of econom-
ics tells one that when supply
increases then the price should
fall if demand holds constant.
While U.S. demand for gasoline is
increasing, it is likely that ethanol
production should increase at a
faster rate.
Right now, Brazil is far ahead
of the United States in terms of
converting from a gasoline soci-
ety to an ethanol one. Brazil uses
sugarcane instead of corn to make
ethanol. Flex cars, which can run
on ethanol alone, are ever pres-
ent.

of the points were still unclear and
needed further revisions, said Wyche.
"The funding manual should be
a detailed process from beginning to
end and provide a formula for SGA to
determine how much funding each
organization is allowed Wyche said.
Issues came up this year that
doesn't match the funding manual's
purpose and made it necessary to
revise it more, according to Wyche.
Although congressmen felt that
a summer SGA was needed in the
past to provide better representation
for decisions, this is the first time
that congressmen will be active in
the summer.
"Summer congress replaces the
need for executive branch to serve
as emergency legislative branch
said Wyche.
Summer congress will last from
the Monday of the first week of
summer session one to the last

(KRT) With a few clicks on
his laptop, Naperville, 111 Detective
Rich Wistocki is staring at a man who
appears to be smoking marijuana.
He clicks again, and there's another
picture of the 22-year-old, nearly
hidden under a large pile of what
looks like bags of marijuana leaves.
"Look at this. How stupid is
this?" Wistocki says as he prints out
the photo and saves a "screen grab"
to his computer.

Wistocki, who works in the
department's Internet crimes unit,
has seen hundreds of photographs
like these: Guys pointing guns,
spraying graffiti, flashing gang signs
or handfuls of money. Law enforce-
ment says it's all a part of a growing
trend of gangs pushing thug life
on the Internet. A search for gang
sites will turn up links to anti-gang
sites started by law enforcement or
anti-crime organizations. Other
sites claim to be academic, present-
ing the real story behind Chicago's
gangs. The more you click, however,
the more likely the site you enter
belongs to someone purporting to
be a gang member. And it's likely a
police officer is looking at it, too.
West Chicago Police Cmdr.
Bruce Malkin teaches about gangs
around the country and surfs the
Internet searching for gang sites
almost daily. He keeps a cache of
Web sites, though he discourages the
public from visiting them. He thinks
some gangs use tracking devices,
called "cookies on their sites to
track down site visitors' personal
information. (Malkin and other
officers use Internet addresses that
bounce trackers to bogus names.)
Malkin, like several of the detec-
tives interviewed, said most of what
he finds he uses to educate himself
about gangs in his area. Although a
lot of the chatter is cryptic, Malkin
said that with close monitoring
and gang know-how, police can
learn a lot. "You'd be surprised
the amount of information they'll
put out on the Web Malkin said.
Some sites detail a gang's his-
tory and boundaries and feature
pictures of graffiti with which
members have tagged their turf.
The sites honor dead gang members
with guest books and music and
vow vengeance against the killers.
Many also feature chat rooms and
bulletin boards where postings
range from favorite albums to vul-
garity-laden proclamations of gang
dominance or rival gang bashing.

In My Opinion
Conservatism: the only
right way to government
DUST1N PTTTMAN
OPINION COLUMNIST
In my last column, I offered up
my opinion on what's wrong with
America, so this week, I'll focus on
solutions rather than problems.
Small government, low taxes,
a strong national defense and
personal responsibility are all
principles of conservatism, which
is the only right way to effective
government.
For too long, America has built
a culture of dependence- depen-
dence on the government for
welfare checks, unemployment
benefits and social security. These
aren't jobs for the government.
Small government is the right
way. I truly believe that the best
government is that which gov-
erns the least, and a government
which governs the least doesn't
provide socialistic programs for
its citizens. If people need to save
up for retirement, the government
should tax them less, allowing
them to save more. I have no
choice but to pay Social Security
on every paycheck I receive, but
that still doesn't stop me from
putting away five percent of each
paycheck into a savings account.
It's not that much now, but It
adds up. Between the paycheck I
receive for my job and the pebbles
that TEC pays me for this column
I barely make enough to pay rent,
food and loan payments, but I
get by and I save. When I retire,
I'll still accept my Social Security
check, if the program still exists
and isn't bankrupt, because I paid
the dues, but I won't depend on
it. I'll have my savings to provide
a comfortable life in my golden
years. I don't believe that everyone
is as far seeing and plans as well
as I do, but it is not the job of the
government to save and plan your
future for you.
Take a look at your next pay-
check and pay close attention to
how much is drawn for Social
Security. Couldn't you invest
that money better? While you're
at it, take a look at your year-to-
date tax totals and think about
this: Most Americans will work
until May 1 to pay the taxes that
are taken out of their paychecks
automatically. As a college student
working a part time job, nearly 15
percent of my gross income yearly
is paid in taxes, and at the end of
the year, I may get two percent
of that back. President Bush is
not the perfect conservative, I'll
be the first to admit that, but at
'least he's got half the idea. The
conservative way is low taxes and
small government, but Bush has
actually grown the government
since he took office. His tax cuts
have stimulated growth and made
our economy stronger, but because
our government has grown and
continues to grow, our national
debt continues to grow. You want
a small national debt, get a small
government.
With a small government,
taxes would be lower than you can
even imagine. With more of your
paycheck going in your pocket,
you'd have the opportunity to save
up for retirement, pay for better
health insurance for your family
and live a much more comfort-
able life.
But there's one area of govern-
ment that we can't pinch pennies
on and that's the national defense.
A strong national defense is also
the right way to government and
that means domestic as well as
foreign policies. People always
point to Sept. 11 as a major fail-
ure of the Bush Administration,
well chew on this. The terrorists
who orchestrated the 911 attacks
entered this country as early as
1993, the first year of the Clinton
Administration. Over Clinton's
eight years leading this country, he
cut defense spending and halted a
great deal of domestic programs in
an effort to save money and sup-
port his big government agenda.
Clinton was a man of the people,
he wanted to provide health care
on a large scale, but in order to
do that he had to cut defense and
other security spending to make
an effort at it. He made it difficult
for our government institutions to
protect this country. If Clinton ran
as aggressive of a "domestic wire-
tapping" policy as Bush does, we
very well may have prevented the
Sept. 11 attacks.
For too long, we've been pam-
pered by a government who has
allowed people to think they
have absolute freedom from gov-
ernment infringement on their
lives, but it isn't so. Laws like the
PATRIOT Act aren't wrong, they're
very important for the safety of
our country.
Finally, it is the government's
job to push personal responsibil-
ity. You are responsible for your
actions. Choose not to wear a
condom and get your girlfriend
pregnant? Congratulations, you've
now have two lives that will
depend on you: a kid and a mother.
Didn't make your boyfriend wear
a condom and got pregnant? Con-
gratulations, you now have a kid,
be sure to raise him or her with a
sense of personal responsibility.
Don't say, "He got me pregnant
and I want an abortion It takes
two to tango.
This isn't the end all, be all
of conservatism, because there's
much more to this plan for govern-
ment than I was able to list here,
but it's a start. If our government
follows the idea of small govern-
ment, low taxes, strong defense
and personal responsibility for its
citizens, our government would
be more efficient and our citizens
in much better shape than they
are today.
Pirate Rants
To the ranter who has overloaded
hisherits e-mail account on One-
Stop: Check your "sent items" folder.
A copy of every e-mail that you've
ever sent resides in that folder and
takes up space. Once you delete
those and then delete them from
your deleted items folder you should
be good to go. You can thank me
publicly in an upcoming rant.
Have you ever stopped to think and
forgot to start again? 1 mean really
it's possible isn't it?
I'm tired of you looking in my
window and watching me change.
Always coming over and asking for
help with things. You know who
you are.
My landlord waits one or two weeks
into the month to cash my check
every month why is it when I
give him the check with a deposit
pending for me he cashes it right
away thus I go into the red? Call
it irony, but now I am broke.
Classes are over and he could have
said something if he'd really wanted
to. He didn't. It's time to move on.
Is it wrong that I feel like stuffing
a sock into my roommate's mouth
every time she's asleep? She snores
like my dad!
I've discovered the secret to lead-
ing a fulfilling life: just say "screw
it" before anything, then whatever
happens, happens.
Guys: if you like a girl just say so!
If she doesn't like you back, she'll
still be flattered and won't think
any differently of you. If she does,
then there ya go!
Why do people insist on my swear-
ing as much as they do? I have
no need for it. Just because you're
emotionally constipated and unable
to express yourself through words
doesn't mean I have to be, thank
you very much.
How long of a look constitutes a
"meaningful gaze"?
Who else misses the Walgreen's
commercials about the "place called
Perfect"? They need to get those
back!
Is it wrong to compare my room-
mate to Malibu Barbie?
Why is the post office so frickin'
far away from every residence hall
on campus?!
As a girl, I've never understood the
need for thongs. I've honestly never
felt the desire to have a wedgie all
day.
The hundreds and hundreds of dol-
lars spent, the constant exposure
to bad music, the insurmount-
able levels of stress, the countless
sleepless nights; 1 love being an
art major.
I'm sending in a Pirate Rant because
I'm emotionally not ready to face
the day yet.
Who else feels old when they see TV
shows about "comeback stars" and
you remember those people when
they made it big the first time?
Can we bring "the bomb" back?
What about "fly"?
TEC doesn't print enough Pirate
Rants!
1 don't know what it is about Taco
Bell, but is has the best food at 1
a.m.
I love summer break cause I missed
my mommy.
I'm addicted to the strawberry
yogurt smoothies at the REC.

Well ladies and gents, I have to
dubious honor of trying to effectively
herald the arrival of one of the biggest

sure to please.
Anyone who can have that
much fun writing music which
transfers into a musical sound like
Big & Rich has got to put on

This may be a shock to

guys as carefree vagabonds, instead
open your mind to something new
before labeling.
Sure these guys have anthem
songs like "Save a horse, ride a
cowboy" and "Coming to your
City which are seemingly insou-
ciant in nature and overall design,
but they also have a song called
"8th of November This is a heart-
felt homage to a remarkable man
who actually gave "Big Kenny
his top hat.
Honestly, I really dig the song,
which is a graceful adaptation of
words that could only be expressed
in one's own artistic creation and
cautiously tempered by that one's
soul. You don't hear too often
people praising or giving thanks to
anyone in their music, not unless it
involves heartache or sorrow.

Do they live here or not? With a successful "pool hopper you never know.
Sun burnt bandits
Inside the scheming of
summer's most notorious
con artists
UZ FULTON
STAFF WRITER
Nothing is more refreshing
than lying by the pool enjoying a
crisp cold Zima and listening to the
sweet sounds of Sugar Ray during a
Greenville summer.
While others slave away at
their $7.00 per hour jobs or stress
out over the grueling pressures of
summer school, there stands alone
a rare breed that spends their time
hunting for the ultimate cement
oasis. Armed with stolen hotel
towels and Styrofoam coolers, they
saunter in aloof and unassuming.
They are pool crashers.
Pool crashers take on different
forms. The most noticeable is the
pack of girls who flood into their
destination of choice and steal all
of the chairs from the residents,
forcing them onto the hard ground
with little more than a towel.
Always with their big sunglasses in
tow, their shades serve the purpose
of not only creating an image of an
insect with a girl's body, but also
masking the true identity of these
renegades. Normally these girls are
those who have just finished their
first year of school and do not real-
ize that the SRC pool is only open
to summer school students.
Another species of pool crash-
ers are the good ol' boys who know
that they are going to graduate in
seven years and have no need for
summer school, let alone a job.
They normally all inhabit the same
dwelling or at least the same block.
Each day they pile into whomever's
SUV has the most gas and arrive at
the pool blaring ACDC and smok-
ing Marlboro lights.
Sunbathers looking for a relax-
ing Tuesday after a hard morning of
class will not achieve a zen-like state
with these boys running around.
However, being so harmless and
clearly looking to have fun, it is
only the truly salty individual that
will attempt to have them removed
from the premises.
There is a dark breed of pool
crashers that one should avoid at
all costs unless you have Brit-
ney Spears taste in men. These
are the dirty old men that have
been known to wreak havoc on
the residents of Riverpointe. One
such tenant was brave enough to
tell her story.
"They walk in with their reced-
ing hair lines and camouflage
coolers said dance major Lauren
Pegram. "I just want to walk up
to them and ask 'what is your day
job?' and 'why are you hitting on
jailbait?
Most pools are strict enough to
not allow any bum off the street to
come into their pools. These types
of crashers are really more likely
to be encountered only if one fre-
quents hotel pools.
The typical crashers are actually
the average ECU students who live
in houses or apartment complexes
without pools and are merely seek-

The main thing to remember
about crashing pools is inevitably
you will get caught. Keep your
cool and do not make a scene.
There is always a new complex
opening somewhere and that is
a new chance to soak up the sun
for free.
The key is to act like you live
there and to never park too close
to the pool- it is more believable
to look like you are walking from
your building.
The most important thing and
the golden rule to live by is never
leave a fellow crasher behind.

5-31 -Of
The Justus League'
coming to Greenville
Located off of Fifth Street, Red Rooster is where Justus League will play.
A show you definitely will
not want to miss
ZACH STEPHENSON
STAFF WRITER
Wipe off your Nike SB Dunks,
bleach a white tee and prepare to
get loose. Cesar Comanche, the
founding father of NC hip-hop
aficionados The Justus League,
will be snatching the mic at the
Red Rooster on June 2. Backing
the artist will be local rhyme
slayers, Supastition and the
Artistic Anarchists.
Comanche founded the North
Cakalaka's crew of rap bandits with
producer 9,h Wonder in the early
90s. The rest is history. The League
has spread like a virus, invading
the hip-hop genome with groups
like A.W.A.Y. Team and critically
acclaimed Little Brother (who
slayed the 2005 set at ECU's Bare-
foot on the Mall.) The 9 Wonder
has gone on to become one of
the most beseeched producers in
hip-hop, laying numerous tracks
for the likes of Jay-Z and backpack
rapper Murs.
While Comanche has not
achieved the commercial success
of his fellow crew, he continues
to release albums rooted in the
essence of rap's classic era. Combin-
ing the intellect of De La Soul with
the no nonsense attitude of Gang
Starr, he brings an aura that's not
to be reckoned with. Comanche
even received praise from legendary
producer DJ Premier on his last LP.
Premier summed up the ordeal with
one simple statement, "Finally beats
and rhymes on a record without all
that phony rappin sh
Supastition will be opening for
the NC hip-hop staple, but don't
sleep on his lesser-known style.
The MC recently dropped a track
with flow master Royce the 5'9,
who went toe-to-toe with Eminem
on a few of those classic freestyles
laid back in the 90s. Hailing from
the same Greenville slums as Petey
Pablo, Supastition grinds Pablo's
lyrics into gibberish that sound
more remedial than his washed-
up name.
Verbal darts like "I'm unbeliev-
able like porn stars getting date
raped This rap game has a lot of
fakes, a lot of liars You couldn't
shoot outside if you were Damon
Stoudamire spit with the poi-
gnancy of nonpareils like Big L.
The night also draws in the
local Artistic Anarchists. Craft-
ing style from early Queensbridge
records, the Anarchists' anthem, "I
love the 80s" pays homage to the
grittiness of Cormega's The Real-
ness. Other tracks throw in traces
of pre Lll' Jon crunk, before all the
lavish diamond-crusted goblets,
back when groups like Memphis
champs Three 6 Mafia were crafting
the bounce.
Supastition's track, "Hate My
Face" inquires, "Will I live up to the
hype is what cats is asking Who
knows? Check out the Red Rooster
on June 2 and decide for yourself.

SENIOR WRITER
Guy Whimper sat on his couch,
baby girl in hand and waited for
his named to be called. When
his name was finally announced,
Whimper's world would take a
severe turn north.
Whimper was
drafted in the fourth
round of this year's NFL
draft by the New York
Giants with the 129
overall pick. Whimper
said he was a little dis-
appointed about not
being drafted on the
first day, but his agent,
Ethan Lock, told him
to be ready early on
day two of the draft.
"My agent called
me and said we didn't
go where we planned
on going and he told
me to be ready Sunday morning and
he was right Whimper said.
Whimper had been getting

calls from a few teams, but when
the second day began, he had a
notion the Giants would be his
new team.
"I had a feeling I was gonna
go to New York anyway because it
was the last visit I took before draft
and it went well Whimper said.
"Atlanta had called me. They said
they were going to try to get me in
fifth round, but the Giants called
30 minutes after that. I'm glad I'm
going to New York
Whimper, a 6-5,
305-pound offensive
tackle, is excited about
the opportunity to
block for Tiki Barber
and Eli Manning.

Baker signs on with Steelers
Zach Baker hopes to earn a roster spot for the Pittsburg Steelers .
Zach Baker's football journey
has been anything but predictable.
The former JUCO transfer now has
a temporary home, one of which he
wants to solidify.
Baker felt he had a "5050 shot"
at being drafted. It didn't happen,
but he is embracing his oppor-
tunity with the Steelers, one of
several teams that showed an inter-
est in the 6-2, 212-pound Baker.
"I was hoping to get drafted, but
that didn't happen Baker said. "I
was a little disappointed, but I feel
like I am in the best situation for me
right now. I'm going to a great team
That's easy to say, consider-
ing the Steelers are the reigning
Super Bowl Champions. The Steel-
ers called Baker during 7,h round
of draft and told him that they
weren't going to take a safety with
their last pick, but were interested
in signing him. They worked out
the terms over the phone and then
Pittsburgh mailed the two-year
contract to Baker for him to sign
and return, which he gladly did.
Although he had a few NFL suitors,
in the end Baker chose the Steel-
ers because he felt it was his best
opportunity to make a team.
"They have the biggest
need at that position Baker said.

. (AP) Briere scored a power-
play goal 4:22 into overtime and the
Sabres forced a deciding game in the
Eastern Conference final with a 2-1
win over the Carolina Hurricanes
on Tuesday night.
J.P. Dumont also scored for Buf-
falo and rookie Ryan Miller stopped
25 shots.
Bret Hedican got the Hurricanes
to overtime, scoring with 3:53 left in
regulation.
Game 7 will be at Raleigh,
N.C on Thursday with the winner
advancing to play Edmonton in the
Stanley Cup final, which will open
at Buffalo or Carolina on Monday.
The Sabres scored on their first
shot on net in overtime and with
Carolina's Doug Weight off for
boarding.
After failing to generate much
in the first 1:40 of the power play,
the Sabres attempted one final rush
and got a break when Carolina's
Justin Williams stumbled inside
his own blue line.
Buffalo's Derek Roy got to the
loose puck and fed Rory Fitzpatrick
at the right point, who quickly
passed across to Briere at the top of
the left circle.
Briere patiently waited for an

and second in overtime.
It marked only the fifth time
the Sabres have forced a Game 7
when trailing a series 3-2. Carolina
had previously won all four Game
6's when up 3-2.
Tuesday's game also was a rever-
sal of Carolina's 4-3 overtime win
on Sunday when Cory Stillman
scored with Dumont in the penalty
box for hooking.
Dumont can now stop kicking
himself for his miscue. His goal,
converting Briere's rebound from
the slot five minutes in, ended an

Miller also rebounded, playing
his best game of the series after he
had allowed 15 goals on 109 shots in

Adam Witter signs
contract with Giants
(SID) East Carolina senior
Adam Witter signed a free agent
contract with the San Francisco
Giants Monday evening head coach
Billy Godwin announced.
Witter led the Pirates in home
runs (14), runs scored (44) and
walks (41), while ranking second
in RBI (42), total bases (118) and
slugging percentage (.544) on his
way to second-team All-Conference
USA honors. He became the fourth
Pirate to wear the honorary No. 23
jersey, which is awarded annually to
a deserving player who best displays
the hustle, determination and desire
that made former Pirate skipper Keith
LeClair a great coach and player.
"I'm real excited to get the
opportunity to play professional
baseball said Witter. "This is
something that every ball player
dreams of doing and I look for-
ward to the new experience and
the chance to take my game to the
highest level possible.
The Chambersburg, Pa. native
finished his career with 29 home
runs, tying fellow senior Jake
Smith for 12th on ECU's all-time
charts, had 102 RBI, 159 hits and
a .285 average while helping the
Pirates to three consecutive NCAA
Regional appearances and one
Super Regional berth. During his
sophomore season he played in 28
games as ECU's top utility player
and was member of the 2004 squad
that claimed the Conference USA
regular season title, won a school
record 51 games and was ranked
nationally by Baseball America (No.
8), USA TodayESPN Coaches (No.
9), NCBWA (No. 10) and Collegiate
Baseball (No. 13).
As a fifth-year senior, Witter
was able to sign a free agent con-
tract as a catcher prior to the 2006
Major League Baseball Amateur
Draft, which will be held on June
6. He will report to Scottsdale,
Ariz the extended Spring Training
site for the Giants on Wednesday
May 31.
Whimper from page ro
Whimper said he wouldn't have it
any other way.
"I'm glad I'm going somewhere
where I know at least one player
Whimper said. "We were friends in
college. When he found out, he sent
me a text message, saying, 'I'm going
to whoop your butt everyday
Whimper's versatility and
incredible combine workout are
what got him picked in the middle
of the draft. When he came out of
Havelock, he started at defensive
end under former ECU Head Coach
Steve Logan. Logan's successor,
John Thompson then moved him
to tight end. He kept getting bigger,
so Skip Holtz moved him inside to
right tackle and that proved to be
the right move for Whimper's blos-
soming NFL career.
"The move to tackle helped
me out a lot Whimper said. "It
showed that I was athletic and
diversified
That athleticism and versatil-
ity was on display for all 32 NFL
teams at the NFL combine, held in
Indianapolis every year. Whimper
recorded the second-fastest time in
the 40-yard dash among offensive
linemen and had one of faster times
for the three-cone drill. Had it not
been for that impressive workout,
Whimper may have gone unnoticed.
"It helped me out a lot because
the coaches really didn't have a lot
of tape at offensive tackle Whim-
per said. "I just showed them that I
can play this position and I can be
a good player. My mindset is just
making the team right now. Just
playing one year (at tackle), they'll
take that into consideration. I just
gotta learn on the run and do what
I can do to help the team
Giants General Manager Ernie
Accorsi said the Giants want to try
Whimper at left tackle, a position
he played only once in college.
"He is a little raw but he is a
great athlete Accorsi said in an
