ECU business students win
national competition
Alternative fuel sources
now used at ECU
ECU students Bryant Beddard, Chris Long, Brian Ozment, Tauris Speight and Racheal Baxter display their awards
alongside Mr. and Mrs. Harrel, the owners of Bennet Vineyards.
Students earn top prize
Students from the ECU School
of Business were awarded first place
in a national competition recently.
The competition itself is based off
investigative work done with local
businesses where students identify
possible problems and seek ways to
eliminate those problems.
Racheal Baxter, Bryant Beddard,
Chris Long, Brian Ozment, and
Tauris Speight were selected for first
place regarding their work with Ben-
nett Vineyards, which is located in
Edward, N.C.
The students, who were mem-
bers of a 'seniors only' class taught
by Professor Michael Harris, Direc-
tor of the Small Business Institute,
were assigned the vineyard as their
project. Students worked closely with
business members, interviewing
them and researching the industry of
the business itself. Additionally, the
team researched and monitored cur-
rent industry trends. The informa-
tion will help discover any issues that
the students might be able to give

SGA legislature holds first summer meeting
First goal already
The legislative branch of SGA
held their first meeting of this
semester on Monday to review the
goals set for the summer.
The three goals for the summer
include approving funding recom-
mended during the spring, defin-
ing funding board and modifying
the funding manual.
SGA has already accomplished
the goal of getting funding to the
student organizations that needed
financial assistance in the spring.
The congressmen that were in
attendance on Monday seemed eager
to get to work on these goals and addi-
tional issues that need to be addressed.
Brianne Meagner, the new
associate director for campus
involvement and leadership, was
introduced at the meeting. Stu-
dents who need to contact her can
find her on the second floor of
Mendenhall Student Center.
Jon Massachi, congressman,
brought up the issue of expanding
the parking lot behind the Baptist
Student Union. A resolution was
created in the spring to extend the
parking lot but no approval to do
so has been made. The resolution
is under review by the Green Space
As of right now, the committee
doesn't agree with the resolution
for three reasons.

The E10 mixture promises
significant decrease of
8 petroleum use
What if the whole world ran out
of gasoline? Many experts ponder
the possibility, especially as the
world's petroleum use continues to
grow. This summer ECU will begin
to use "gasohol" as an alternative
fuel source to power some of the
vehicles and equipment on campus.
Gasohol is an ElO mixture that
contains 90 percent gasoline and
10 percent ethanol. The 10 percent
replacement of ethanol in each
gallon will result in a 10 percent
reduction in petroleum used in
many universities' vehicles and
George Harrell, senior associate
vice chancellor for campus opera-
tions, said that ECU uses about
107,000 gallons of the standard
gasoline yearly, and the change
to the ElO mixture will result in a
decrease of around 11,000 gallons
of petroleum per year. Harrell
said that crops grown in eastern
North Carolina can be converted
to produce the ethanol percentage
of the ElO mixture.
Ethanol is an alcohol-based
alternative fuel source that is pro-
duced by fermenting and distill-
ing starch crops that have been
converted into simple sugars.
Feedstock for this fuel source
includes corn, barley and wheat.
Ethanol can also be produced
from cellulosic biomass, such as
trees and grasses, which is called
Most of the 4 billion gallons
of ethanol used every year in the
United States is used in the form of
the ElO mixture, and this 10 per-
cent blend is approved for all makes
and models of vehicles. Even some
automobile manufactures recom-
mend the use of the ElO mixture
over standard gasoline because of
its high octane level and enhanced
performance characteristics.
Ethanol is not a new concept.
At its most simple state, Ethanol
is grain alcohol, which has been
around for centuries. Henry Ford
even visualized his automobiles
running on this type of alcohol
rather than on regular gasoline.
The ElO mixture is completely
safe to use in smaller engines like
motorcycles, lawn mowers, trim-
mers, boats, snowmobiles and many
other engines, which is an added
benefit because it can fuel all the
different kinds of machines that

'Guys and Dolls"
June 27-July 1
A Musical Fable of Broadway and
based on a story and characters
of Damon Runyon, this funny and
romantic comedy-considered by many
to be the perfect musical comedy-
soars with the spirit of Broadway
as it introduces us to a cast of vivid
characters who have become legends
in the canon. Everything works out in
the end, thanks to the machinations
of Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling's
hilarious, fast-paced book and Frank
Loesser's bright, brassy, immortal
score, which takes us from the heart of
Times Square to the cafes of Havana,
Cuba, and even into the sewers of
New York City.
"The Fantasticks"
July 11-15
The original production opened on May
3,1960 at the Sullivan Street Playhouse
in New York's Greenwich Village
where it's still playing after 15,000
performances making 77e Fantasticks
is the longest-running musical in the
world! At the heart of its breathtaking
poetry and subtle sophistication is a
purity and simplicity that results in a
timeless fable of love that manages
to be nostalgic and universal at the
same time. It's moving tale of young
lovers who become disillusioned,
only to discover a more mature,
meaningful love is punctuated by a
bountiful series of catchy, memorable
songs. With its minimal costumes,
small band and virtually non-existent
set, The Fantasticks is an intimate
show that engages the audience's
imagination and showcases a strong
ensemble cast.
U.S. gains support of Russia and China
What will be done about
Iran's nuclear program?
The United States has gained
the support of Russia and China
on the issue of Iran and is put-
ting together a new package of
incentives for Iran to stop its
uranium enrichment process,
which can yield either electricity
or nuclear weapons. The United
States, along with governments
in Europe, believes that Iran's
uranium enrichment process is for
the purpose of producing nuclear
weapons, not electricity.
The great fear is that Iran
having a nuclear weapon would be
able to use its position as "central
bank" to distribute nuclear weap-
ons to allies in the Islamic jihad E
such as Al-Queda, Hezbollah and jj
the Hamas to name a few. S
The U.N. security council and
Germany have no wish to see this
happen and Iran may be ignoring
the incentive of peace with the six
most powerful countries in the
world with global support. Iran
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
recently spoke of how the West
will not keep Iran from obtaining
nuclear technology. He suggested

Families of car crash victims stunned by mix-up
(KRT) In a tragic case of
mistaken identity, the family of an
Indiana college student believed to
have survived a multiple-fatality
crash in late April said Wednesday
their daughter was dead, while the
parents of a student thought to
have died in that collision learned
their daughter was alive in a Michi-
gan hospital.
The sad and extraordinary
story came to light on a Web log set
up by the family of Laura VanRyn,
a 22-year-old student from Caledo-
nia, Mich. Her relatives had kept a
five-week vigil at the Grand Rapids
hospital bed of a young woman
they thought was their daughter.
Uncertainty about the woman's
identity grew this week as she
regained consciousness, and dental
records confirmed the student the
VanRyn family had been watching
over was actually 18-year-old Whit-
ney Cerak of Gaylord, Mich.
The Cerak family had unknow-
ingly buried VanRyn on April 30, in
the northern Michigan woods about
180 miles north of Grand Rapids.
"Our hearts are aching as
we have learned that the young
woman we have been taking care
of over the past five weeks has not
been our dear Laura, but instead a
fellow Taylor student of hers the
VanRyns said on their blog.
Authorities in Indiana were
trying to unravel the heartbreaking
mix-up on Wednesday, five weeks
after five people-including four
students from Taylor University, a
small evangelical Christian college
in Upland, Indwere killed in a
crash on Interstate Highway 69.
Confusion apparently began
in the hectic moments after the
deadly April 26 crash involving
a semi-tractor trailer loaded with
baking flour and the Taylor Uni-
versity van, returning from nearby
Ft. Wayne. Grant County (Ind.)
Coroner Ron Mowery, whose office
handled the death investigations,
apologized during a news confer-
ence Wednesday for the mix-up.
He described an accident scene
where purses and wallets were
strewn about and that acquain-
tances of the students had iden-
tified the survivor taken to a Ft.
Wayne hospital as VanRyn. He said
no scientific testing was conducted
to verify the identifications.
"I can't stress enough that we
did everything we knew to do
under those circumstances, and
trusted the same processes and the
same policies that we always do
Mowery told reporters in Marion,
Ind. "And this tragedy unfolded
like we could never have imagined
The truth about the identities
of the two young women began to
take shape in recent days, as the
VanRyns watched Cerak slowly
recover from serious head and
neck wounds at a Grand Rapids
rehabilitation center for victims
of brain damage. Bruce Rossman,
a spokesman for Spectrum Health
System in Grand Rapids, said the
VanRyn family's doubts mounted
as Cerak gained more awareness of
her surroundings.
"They said a couple of times
they called her Laura and she said,
No, Whitney Rossman said.
Acting on suspicions, the two
families conferred on Tuesday,
Rossman said, and requested dental
records be checked. By Tuesday night
the families knew the young woman
was not Laura VanRyn. Twelve
hours later, at mid-morning on
Wednesday, dental records proved
the recovering woman was Cerak.
Rossman said he did not know
the specific nature of Cerak's
injuries or the extent to which
her identity would have been
obscured by wounds, bandages or
other markings. "There was some
general trauma associated with
the accident, including bruising
and swelling he said. The families
issued a joint statement Wednes-
day, saying these "two wonderful
young women shared a striking
similarity in size, hair, facial fea-
tures and body type
"Our families are supporting
each other in prayer, and we thank
our families, friends and communi-
ties for their prayers the families
said in a prepared statement.
Five weeks ago the local news-
paper in Gaylord, the Herald Times,
published an obituary for Whitney
Cerak. It read, "She lived a wonder-
ful, full, but short life

nature of Israeli-Palestinian conflict
"Palestinian conflict:
Insights from the past"
Archaeologist Dr. Eveline J.
van der Steen gave a lecture Tues-
day evening entitled "Palestinian
Conflict: Insights from the Past
illustrating her experiences in field
research of Israel and Palestine and
the history of the conflict.
Dr. van derSteen stated that much
of the conflict is attributed to times
during and after the First World War.
"When the British and the
French imperial powers messed
up in the Middle East. They made
promises to different people that
were incompatible and they tried to
keep those promises and they made
a big mess of everything because
everyone wanted those particular
promises she said.
"Partly it is a conflict of ideology
and religion between Jews and Pales-
tinians she continued. "There are
Israelis and Palestinians that have
extreme views of the land dispute
The conflict she referenced was
that all areas west and east of the
Dr. van der Steen spoke about the complexity of the Palestinian conflict.
Jordan River belong to one party
and hot the other.
. While we see much of the
extreme examples of the Israeli-Pal-
estinian conflict on the news, Dr.
van der Steen says that the majority
of the people are in favor of peace.
"Most Israelis and Palestin-
ians are willing to give up part of
their original claims of land in
exchange for peace and are willing
to consider the other party's claims.
It's more than just a land dispute.
It's an ideological dispute, and
religion comes into it, and religion
is always a very dangerous thing to
mix into politics she said.
While unsure of her overall
message, Dr. van der Steen wanted
people to understand that the Israeli-
Palestinian conflict is not a simple
problem and lacks a simple solution.
This program was sponsored by
the World Affairs Council (WAC),
a non-profit organization relatively
new to Greenville and ECU, and
was also made possible by the
Rivers Chair program, which brings
in international faculty to ECU.
Dr. Richard J. Kilroy, Jr
visiting assistant professor and
assistant director of military pro-
grams, is the president of the
board of directors of the WAC in
Greenville. While WAC has existed
in Greenville since Spring2006,
Dr. van der Steen's program was
the first event WAC has sponsored.
WAC also hosts the Great Deci-
sions Program, in which they
discuss issues such as U.S. policy
with Iran, United Nations reform,
human rights in terrorism, and the
global energy crises.
Greenville's WAC chapter is just
one of five in the state of N.C with
the others located in Charlotte,
Gfeensboto, TriangleRaleigh area
and Asheville. There are a total of
85 chapters and various organiza-
tions of the WAC that stem from
the main organization located in
Washington, D.C.
While many programs from ECU
are involved in WAC and the board of
directors, such as the international
programs and the study abroad
programs, it is not limited to them.

The E10 mixture also has envi-
ronmental benefits. The use of the
E10 mixture reduces greenhouse
gas emissions by 12 to 19 percent
when compared to regular gaso-
line. Ethanol also contains 35 per-
cent oxygen, making it burn more
hygienically and completely than
regular gasoline. Lastly, ethanol
is biodegradable, which makes it
better for the environment overall.
Other changes are planned
to continue the reduction of
petroleum used on campus, like
switching to remanufactured lubri-
cating oil for university vehicles
and modifying the student transit
system busses to use biodiesel fuel.

In My Opinion
Ethanol is a start, not the solution
Driving under the
influence of ethanol
There has been a lot of talk
lately that some of you may have
heard about the use of a substance
called ethanol tc replace gasoline.
With gas prices still ranging near
$3 a gallon, many probably think
this is the answer to our skyrocket-
ing gas-prices dilemma. But do you
really know what ethanol is?
Ethanol is basically alcohol, spe-
cifically ethyl or grain alcohol. It's
flammable, colorless and commonly
used to make alcoholic beverages.
Essentially, it is alcohol. For you chem-
istry majors, it can be represented as:
EtOH, C2HSOH andor C2H60.
The truth of the matter is that
ethanol can be found in most gaso-
line, just in a very small amount.
Most of America's gasoline is about
10 percent ethanol, and is derived
from corn. Brazil is the largest
national fuel ethanol industry, and
produces ethanol from sugarcane.
They produce 14 billion liters of
ethanol annually, covering about
40 percent of Brazil's gasoline
demand. All of Brazil's fuel con-
tains at least 25 percent alcohol.
Ethanol, while widely mixed
with gasoline, could be used by itself
as a fuel source. In fact, back in 2005,
the Indy Racing League announced
its cars would run on a 10 percent
ethanol - 90 percent methanol (gas-
oline) blend fuel. In 2007, the cars
will race on 100 percent ethanol.
The theoretical benefits to
ethanol are that it's renewable, it
can be domestically produced and
it burns cleaner than gas. The prob-
lem with the latter is that using
ethanol as a fuel produces nitrogen
monoxide and nitrogen dioxide.
Both are harmful air pollutants, but
both are still produced by normal
gasoline. The theory though is
that ethanol would produce less
of them than normal gasoline.
While some of you may think
Republicans and oil tycoons are
putting down ethanol, it should be
known that President George W.
Bush and members of Congress have
expressed support for ethanol use.
This spring, refiners in parts of the
president's home state of Texas and
in the Northeast have been replac-
ing a gasoline additive called MTBE
(methyl tertiary-butyl ether) with
ethanol. MTBE, a chemical used to
oxygenate fuel, can contaminate
drinking water. Ethanol, which
does not present the same danger,
can serve the same purpose in fuel.
In 2005, an energy bill was
passed that requires the U.S. to
boost its ethanol production to
7.5 billion gallons by 2012, up
from about 4 billion in 2005. This
is a significant increase when you
consider the fact that the U.S. used
up almost 140 billion gallons of gas
last year. However, ethanol contains
less energy than gas and that would
mean drivers would have to make
more frequent trips to the pump.
You may have also heard that
ethanol is cheaper than gasoline,
but that is not true. The move this
spring by more regions to use etha-
nol means that demand for ethanol
has spiked and driven prices up.
Recently, the New York harbor
price for ethanol was around $3 per
gallon compared with about $2.28
for gasoline. That gas price is before
it is mixed with ethanol. In other
words, for now ethanol is helping
to increase prices at the pump.
Another factor that could be
increasing gas prices is the fact that
ethanol can't travel in pipelines
along with gasoline, because it
picks up excess water and impuri-
ties. As a result, ethanol needs to
be transported by trucks, trains
or boats, which is more expensive
and complicated than sending it
down a pipeline. Because refiners
switched to ethanol this spring,
the rise in gas prices could be due
to their change in transportation
needs to move ethanol.
So based on all these facts,
maybe things aren't as they appear.
Maybe the reason we have to spend
more on gas is because the reality
is that we're spending more on
ethanol. Perhaps instead of greedy
politicians and rich fats cats being
the enemy to your gas expenses,
you should look at the environ-
mentalists and the alternative fuel
activists with a little more anger.
Maybe President Bush isn't an oil-
hungry business tycoon who doesn't
care about the environment, since
he would have had some approval
of the energy bill that has required
more ethanol to be produced in this
country. Maybe the need for oil in
this country is based on a need to
make gasoline cheaper for people
to buy and have so they can drive
happily around in their SUVs rather
than having to pay more for it as
ethanol becomes needed more and
more or as ethanol becomes used
in our gasoline more and more.
Maybe gas prices aren't being
dictated by greedy corporate fat
cats of the oil industry. Maybe the
ethanol industry is to blame, or
even those that push the use of
ethanol. Perhaps there could even
be a connection between the two.
I'm all for saving the environ-
ment, in fact I've made the effort to
recycle beyond what my apartment
complex and the school has given
me the option for. However, people
will not always make the effort to
do what's right or good for them or
the Earth, especially if has to come
from their wallet. Alternative fuels
are a great idea, but don't be fooled
into thinking that just because you
pay more you actually gain more.

The arrival of summer
marks the beginning
of another hurricane
season. Last year the
intense amounts of ,
wind and rain cre-
ated by Hurricane
Katrina shattered
the lives of count-
less Americans. In
the wake of this
tragedy many of us
were left wondering
what we would do if
we ever found ourselves
in a similar situation.
Preparation is the key
to escaping a hurricane with
minimal damage. Since we live
in eastern North Carolina the
probability of a hurricane striking
is extremely high, therefore precau-
tions should be taken to reduce the
effects of a disaster.
One of the first things that you
The kit should include blankets,
a battery-powered radio, non-per-
ishable food (enough for three to
seven days), water (one gallon per
person for three to seven days), a
first aid kit, flashlights and bat-
By keeping this kit on hand you
will take the burden of scrambling
to find things off of your shoul-
ders so that you can shift
your focus to the safety of
yourself as well as your
Next, if an evacua-
tion is issued for your
area be sure to leave
as soon as possible.
Staying in your home
will only put your
in danger. You can
rebuild and restore
damage to your home,
but your life is irreplace-
able, so don't take any
unnecessary risks.
Have an evacuation plan
ready so that when it's time to
leave you aren't left wondering
where to go. Keep important contact
information for family and friends
with you at all times so that you can
easily find a place to stay until the
storm passes.

Forecasters expect another very active
Also, keep the number of hotels
in other towns on hand so that if
your family and friends have to
evacuate as well you won't be left
stranded. If none of these options
work for you, shelters are another
option. Shelters usually open in
the event of an emergency, and
while they may not be the most
comfortable place to stay, they-are
generally safe.
Hurricane preparation should
also include learning about poten-
tial risks and predications for the

Rocking country weekend in Roanoke Rapids
Big & Rich concert review
Big & Rich entertained a large crowd at the new Carolina Crossroads
Last week's preview of the
Big and Rich concert hardly
described the environment which
the performers created with their
performances on Saturday, June 3.
Not even the rain showers could
put a damper on the festivities
held this past weekend for about
20,000 fans.
Being that I arrived a bit late,
I only saw a bit of the local band
Southern Draw. Even they were
primed and ready to play that
day in the rain and didn't disap-
point by giving spectators a good
bit of Carolina country to shake
the buns to.
Next was Danielle Peck, a new
and upcoming female country
artist. Her music had great catch to
the words and was easy to listen.
Besides, she is a native of North
Carolina, as she stated during her
set, and we all know how beautiful
Carolina girls are.
a Jason Aldean followed up to an
2 enormous reception upon starting
his set. His music was extremely
entertaining with a performance
which matched his passion he has
put into writing his songs. There
was something for everyone when
he covered some Guns and Roses
during his stint. "Paradise City"
and "Sweet Child O' Mine" received
huge attention and singing along
from the crowd.
Now before the main act was
to appear, you must imagine there
would be some bumps in the road,
especially for a newly established
venue such as the Carolina Cross-
roads. Big & Rich was to give a
press conference for the media to
which the record label bluntly said
no deal. This would have been nice
to know before Carolina Cross-
roads tried to get them to give the
press conference for about an hour
and a half.
Either Big & Rich is too pansy
for a simple press conference or
their label doesn't have the eggs
to let these boys speak, either way
they came out looking like nancy
boy sellouts to the media. Being a
national act, you have some respon-
sibility to the people who buy your
records and see your shows to at
least be kind enough to take time
out of your busy day of sleeping
to speak to them through media
Also, to the two women who I
gave my seat up to, trying to be a
chivalrous Southern gentleman:
Have some common decency and
say thank you. I noticed these old
bags were wearing "Corporate"
access tags around they- necks and I
imagine couldn't be bothered with
common human decency.
Big & Rich eventually took the
stage and I realized something- the
wait and anticipation was all worth
it. These guys rocked a field of
totally engulfed and entranced
people. Opening with "Coming to
your City they never let go of the
fans during the show.
Another first for me was this;
during the show Big & Rich brought
an American flag out there and took
the led into an impromptu "Pledge
of Allegiance" with the crowd, to
which they gave thanks to this
great nation for allowing them to
play their music.
Carolina Crossroads did a great
job organizing this event, which
actually ran quite smoothly. I hope
some of you made the trip to see
this grade "A" show. If not, you
missed a great concert and time.

Tokyo To Go! becomes new spin on an old favorite
New Japanese hibachi
style cuisine
Greenville has many options
when it comes to restaurants, casual
dining, fast food and take-out. On
April 26 another place opened that
people can't stop talking about,
Tokyo To Go! It's located at 310-F
E. Arlington Boulevard, in the Big
Lots stopping center.
"The reason for opening a
Japanese place was because I was
unhappy with the other ones. I
thought they were too crowded,
the wait was too long and through
different experiences I just
decided to open up one of my
own said George Swarts, owner of
Tokyo To Go!
You can call ahead for pick
up at 321 - 8300 and even view
their menu on their Web site, or by requesting
the menu via fax. If you chose to eat
in their large dining area you will
also be pleased with their service,
cleanliness and family friendly
"The reason I decided to work
at Tokyo To Go! is because they are
Walking into Tokyo to Go! you may notice a different atmosphere. Customers enjoy the unique flavors that are offered at Tokyo to Go!
providing a great product that will
hopefully lead to expanding stores
in the near future said manager
Dennis Duffy.
Tokyo To Go! offers a variety of
food selections such as shrimp, filet,
scallops and all white meat hibachi
or teriyaki chicken. Each entree
(sumo size) or bowl (lunch portion)
comes with vegetables and your
choice of rice or their soba noodles.
I found that the noodles were best
with shrimp or scallops and their
fried rice was great with the chicken
or beef. Their Japanese mushroom
soup and spring rolls are perfect
for appetizers or just a quick snack.
They also have Samurai Wraps
which are made of steamed or fried
rice, zucchini, onions and your
choice of a sauce and meat (or just
all vegetables) all rolled in a tortilla.
The steak wrap with white sauce
is a personal favorite. Their salads
are great for light lunches and even
better with hibachi chicken or
steak on top.
Tokyo To Go! seems to have
mastered the sauces. They offer
ginger dressing which is great on
salads, homemade white sauce
that is great on everything, ginger
sauce which adds a little sweet-
ness to your meal, mustard which
is good for those who like things
a little spicy and hot sauce for
those who like it really spicy. All of
these sauces are homemade with

season. This year forecasters at the
National Hurricane Center predict
a very active Atlantic hurricane
season. An 80 percent chance of
above-normal hurricane season
activity is reflected in the predicted
amount of activity.
The 2006 hurricane season out-
look predicts 13-16 named storms,
8-10 hurricanes and 4-6 major hur-
ricanes (category 3-4-5 storms).
Preparing for hurricanes
before they strike is a key aspect in
surviving them with a minimal
amount of damage to our lives.
When preparing for hurricane
season we should keep in mind the
devastation from years past, and look
to the future with knowledge and
understanding as a way to mini-
mize the destruction.

"The 7 - hibachi chicken and
steak is the most popular entree
on the menu said Swarts. My per-
sonal favorite is the 15 - teriyaki
chicken, hibachi steak and shrimp;
although I can never eat all of the
food in the entree I also like to get
the two for .99 spring rolls.
They are open Sunday - Thurs-
day 10:30 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Friday-
Saturday 10:30 a.m. -10 p.m. Their
location, quality, cost and friendly
service are all factors as to why
many believe this Japanese hibachi
fast casual dining has quickly made
a name for itself and will remain
established for years to come.
Tokyo To Go! is a casual dining
place that is spacious, delicious and
convenient. Although it is the first
of its' kind, Swarts plans to open
another location due to the success
the first store has had.
It is definitely worth trying
Tokyo To Go! the next time you get

I'm sure you will be going back.

Justus League concert at Red Rooster
A small but heartfelt
crowd gathered last Friday
On entrance, the club seemed
sparse for a show embracing such
North Carolina essentials as Supas-
tition and Cesar Comanche. A
lone dancer flagrantly bounced
across the floor, oblivious to the
stares of his sober onlookers.
The robotic, b-boy concoctions
were an amusing spectacle, but
became an archaic anecdote
once the talent seized the stage.
An unbilled appearance from
Wilmington-based emcee Fuzz
Jax graced the night's infancy.
His show opener "How Many
Times laced soulful production
with lingual expressions like "I
can't take it no more It's Hol-
lywood galore 1 think cats forgot
what they really rappin' for
Pretty bold statements coming
from a relatively unknown
rapper, but his style proved a
worthy asset to the night's aura of
roots revival.
Following suit, the Artistic
Anarchists set was perfectly timed,
right when the crowd finished
swilling Jager bombs and was ready
to get loose.
The group's gritty sound
and jaded lyrics complemented
their persona, topped off with
a T-shirt stating 'They Hate Me'
in bold print. The Anarchists'
have J-Zone's demeanor album
A lob Ain't Nothing But Work down
to a science.
Comanche snatched the mic
like a well-seasoned vet. He's the
co-founder of The Justus League
'nuff said. "Jacob's Ladder" cli-
maxed the night. The first verse,
"We love all of ya'll We love all
of ya'll, man Knoxville, Charlotte,
Greenville, DC put the crowd in
complete hysteria.
When asked how he felt about
the success of the League, and com-
parisons to the rest of the industry,
he replied modestly. "Music needs
to ground itself in real life. If it
sounds dope, I'm with it The con-
versation ended abruptly, as Supas-
tition began the show's conclusion.
Supastition previously con-
tended, "Will I live up to the hype
is what cats is asking on his
track "Hate My Face I'm asking,
where's the hype? With under-
ground rap dissolving into the
backwash of Stones Throw Records
and MF Doom more intrigued
by Adult Swim than the hip-hop
community, Supa has messiah-
like potential.
His lyrics were clear and concise,
an amazing feat for a rapper at a live
show. After using call-and-response
tactics to involve the crowd, he
jumped off stage, leaving the audi-
ence with the image of a starry
Greenville night not to be forgotten.

TEC's 2005-06 Athletes of the Year
Allison and McCallion break ECU records, take top honors
Aundrae Allison had a break out junior season
to earn him male athlete of the year.
Top Five Male
Athletes of the Year
Aundrae Allison- Football
Allison somersaulted into the end
zone when scoring his first touchdown
during 2005's spring practice. Back then,
fans didn't know what to expect from
the Georgia Military transfer. Allison
was a highly touted recruit when he
originally signed with UNC, but few
anticipated the type of breakout season
that included an assault on the pres-
tigious ECU record book. Instead of
flaming out, Allison arrived on the
scene to deliver one of the most magical individual football seasons ever.
The junior receiver tallied an ECU single-season
record in receiving yards with 1,024. He was the first Pirate receiver
to break the century mark in a single-season while shattering
the previous record by 127 yards. His 93.1 receiving yards-per-game
ranked 19,h nationally while his catches-per-game (7.55) led Confer-
ence USA and were fourth nationally.
Had Allison not suffered a knee injury in the season finale, he
may have broke Terrance Copper's single-season reception mark,
which he narrowly missed by four receptions. The junior also tallied
five games with receiving yards in excess of 100 yards, the most ever
for an ECU receiver.
Allison was named to the All-C-USA team and started all 11 contests
while scoring seven touchdowns despite facing multiple double teams.

Despite soccer receiving little fan inter-

record books. McCallion, who is tied for the
most games played (80) with fellow senior
Melissa Penney, also holds school records in
points per game (1.20), goals per game (0.49),
shots attempted (276), shots per game (3.45),
while ranking second in assists (18) and fourth
in assists per game (0.22).
The four-year starter finished her collegiate
career by becoming ECU's all-time leading scorer
(96), goal scorer (39) as well as the all-time leader
The Long Island, N.Y. native led the team with nine goals, six assists
and 24 points en route to an 8-12-1 record. She was named to the 2005

Jake Smith- Baseball
Smith was bothered by a hamstring injury
throughout Billy Godwin's inaugural season,
but still managed to be named second-team All-
American by Louisville SluggerCollegiate Base-
ball. The hard hitting catcher became the first
Pirate since 2004 to earn All-America accolades.
Smith finished his collegiate career with 29
home runs and 135 RBIs, which ranks in the
top 12 on ECU'S all-time charts. During 2006,
he topped all Pirate hitters in seven categories
including average, hits, doubles, RBI, total
bases and slugging percentage, while ranking
second in home runs with 13.
The Greensboro, N.C. native was selected to the first-team All C-USA
squad. He also was named C-USA Hitter-of-the-Week honors on Feb. 27.
Hector Cotto- Track fir Field
Cotto will compete in the NCAA national
championship outdoor track meet on June
7-10. The lid meter hurdler recently finished
third at the East Regional in Greensboro to
qualify for the national meet. It was Cotto's
second consecutive trip to the regional meet.
The senior hurdler broke his own per-
sonal best and set an ECU record time of
13.66 during the East Regional, breaking
his previous mark of 13.78, which he set
as a junior. The Cary, N.C. native finished
second in the C-USA Championships after
posting a 14.00 mark. Cotto turned in a
strong outing at the Penn Relays, when he finished eighth (14.08)
in the college division and ninth in the championship heat (14.55).
Bryan Yaslnsac- Swimming fir Diving
Yasinsac made an immediate impact on
Rick Kobe's swimming squad, which finished
second in C-USA, after transferring from the
University of Florida. Yasinsac earned all-con-
ference honors in four relay events and set an
ECU record in the 50-free (20.61).
The 6-foot, 5-inch swimmer anchored
the 200-medley relay (1:30.73), 400-medley
relay (3:22.48), 200-freestyle relay (1:22.49)
and the 400-freestyle relay (3:02.10), all
of which topped C-USA. The 200-medley
relay also established an ECU record time.
In addition to the 50-free, the Taylorsville, N.C. native led the
team with top times in the 100-free (45.61) and 200-free (1:41.65).
Chris Moore- Football
Despite getting released from the New
Orleans Saints, Moore had a memorable col-
lege campaign. The hard nosed and undersized
middle linebacker etched his mark on the ECU
record book while also serving as the senior
emotional leader for the Pirates' 5-6 resurgence.
Moore tallied 415 career tackles, which
stands fourth all-time behind former ECU greats
Harold Randolph, Robert Jones and Pernell
Griffin. The 6-foot, 235-pound linebacker led
the conference in tackles in 2004 and finished
third in 2005. The first-team C-USA selection led C-USA in tackles for a loss.
He started all 11 games in 2005 and gritted out 38 games total for his career.

Ward saves the day for Hurricanes in Game 1
(AP) His teammates were
still grumbling Tuesday about how
poorly they played. Yet some of the
Carolina Hurricanes say that without
rookie goaltender Cam Ward, they
might be grousing instead about a
loss to Edmonton in the opening
game of the Stanley Cup finals.
"We got outshot, outchanced,
we got outplayed, plain and simple.
If it wasn't for Cam Ward, we would
have lost that game left wing Cory
Stillman said after Tuesday's off-
day skate at the RBC Center, site of
Game 2 in the best-of-seven series.
"If you're looking at the stats,
we won the game Stillman said of
the 5-4 victory. "It was great, but I
think the only guy who showed up
on our team was our goaltender
Ward made 34 saves against the
Oilers, but none was more impres-
sive than a stop on center Shawn
Horcoff with 3.8 seconds left when
Ward flailed at the puck with his
glove hand and batted it away.
"It was one of those instances
that Ryan Smyth made a great pass
where I kind of anticipated the shot
and bit down and just out of pure
desperation threw my glove out and
just so happened to hit it Ward said.
"It's just a good example of not giving
up on the puck, I guess, and getting
a little bit lucky at the same time
Carolina coach Peter Laviolette
said it was an impressive perfor-
mance given that Ward surrendered
three goals in two periods and
allowed another that tied the score
at 4 late in the third period.
"Usually, if you get one high-
light-reel save in a game, it's a
good one to get Laviolette said.
"But he probably had four of them.
Empty-net, backdoor goal where,
somehow, he got across and got a
piece of it. He was very focused. He
played great, he really did
Ward, whose beard barely hids
the fact that he's just 22, didn't
make his NHL playoff debut until
it looked like the Hurricanes were
about to be run out of the postsea-
son in the first round. But he gave
the team hope after replacing regu-
lar-season starter Martin Gerber in
a Game 2 loss to Montreal.
In Game 3 against the Cana-
diens, Ward stopped 27 of 28 shots
to earn his first playoff victory, and
followed that by making 23 saves
in a Game 4 win. Stellar efforts in
Games 5 and 6 helped Carolina rally
from an 0-2 deficit in the series and
propel them toward their second run
at the Stanley Cup in four seasons.

of his four semifinal victories over
New Jersey, Ward came through
in the Eastern Conference finals
against Buffalo, ending with a 22-
save performance against the Sabres
in Game 7 that gave Carolina a
chance to rally for a 4-2 victory.
"His play in the playoffs has
been consistent Laviolette said.
"He came in and saved our bacon
against Montreal, and he played
extremely well
Edmonton led 3-0 late in the
second period Monday before they
rallied for the win. One goal came
on a penalty shot and another was
the result of a deflection off one of
Ward's teammates.
"It's how you respond from
those situations that matter Ward
said. "We have been in those
situations all season long, and once
