Threatening the North Carolina
coast with the possibility of becom-
ing a hurricane, Tropical Storm
Ernesto brought rain and wind to
Greenville last Friday. In an effort
to keep the university staff and S
students safe, administration chose B5
to close ECU due to severe weather.
Despite classes being cancelled
on Friday, very little damage was .g
done to campus. c
When Aaron Lucier, associ-
ate director of Campus Living
Operations, was asked if any ECU
dorms had been flooded, he said,
"I'm not sure that flooded is the
proper terminology. There was
some water-damage to the dorms

Manda Outcalt and Joe Hoyt look out over a flooded parking lot on 11th Street. Both suffered the loss of their vehicles. Hoyt's truck is shown above.
When he asked about the cost
of damage Lucier said, "There
really isn't any cost outside of our
regular budget because person-

While ECU dining halls were
not open for breakfast, they did
open for brunch and the campus
moved into its normal weekend
schedule on Friday.
Freshman Laurel Poe, a resi-
dent of Greene Hall, said, "The
storm wasn't a big deal. It didn't
get scary or anything. The rain
made me sleep better and I'm glad
there's no school today
University spokesman John
Blimpie joins campus dining
Campus Dining brings students a brand new eatery and innovative ordering options with the new Blimpie Subs and Salads on the LAHN campus.

Students and faculty at the
Laupus Library, Allied Health Sci-
ences and Nursing Building at the
Brody School of Medicine will no
longer need to leave the facility in
search of a quick meal.
Blimpie Subs and Salads opened
a location on the first floor of the
Allied Health Sciences section of
the LAHN building on Thursday
The store expects to serve between
four and five hundred patrons
per day.
"ECU Campus Dining is very
excited about this addition to the
ECU Campus Dining program
said Allison Metcalf, marketing
program manager for Campus
Dining. "This is the first dining
location we have opened and oper-
ated within the medical campus
neighborhood. We feel that this
addition will meet the needs of
ECU students, faculty and staff for
quality, convenience and healthy
food choices
The new Blimpie will also be
part of a pilot program, "Web-

Allied Health Sciences students,
faculty and staff will be able to
order food and pay for it online
and simply pick it up at the express

associate vice chancellor for
Campus Living and Dining.
Premade items will also be
available at the express window.
If the Webfood program is suc-
cessful, it may be expanded to other
parts of the medical campus.
"Our future plans for West
Campus is to add eateries in the
Cardiovascular Research Center,
Student Services Building and
Brody School of Medicine John-
son said.
The rest of ECU's population
may be enjoying the same benefits
"Webfood is being piloted

Information you need
to know to stay safe
Students on campus want to
feel secure about their surround-
ings, but sometimes that means
students need to know the bad
along with the good about what
goes on within their campus
The topic of sexual assault is
a very serious topic and making
others aware of the information
surrounding this topic is impor-
If someone is walking into
a dangerous situation, it would
make sense that he or she would
have information that would
shield them from that danger,
but what if they thought they
were completely safe, unaware
of the danger that potentially
awaits them? Their guard would
be down and they would be open
to attack.

Professors puzzled by decline in classroom attendance
(MCT) College professors
understand that 8 a.m. classes
are not the most popular among
students, but lately instructors
are wondering if any time would
be popular.
At UC Berkeley and else-
where, faculty members have
noticed declining attendance in
their classes the past year or two.
Some professors have resorted to
high-tech roll-taking methods to
keep students in their seats, while
others say the trend does not
bother them.
"One thing about college stu-
dents is that these students are
adults and can make their own
decisions said UC Berkeley pro-
fessor Alex Filippenko, whose
astronomy classes generally have
at least 700 students. About 200
usually attend, he said, while
others watch the lectures later on
Internet Web casts.
"In a largeclass, I'm not going
to force them to come Filippenko
But the disappearing students
have alarmed enough professors to
prompt a lively online discussion
among Berkeley faculty members
this year and lead them to schedule
an October forum on the subject.
The online conversation began
last spring with a short message
from sociology professor Kristin
Luker, who noted that fewer than
half her students were showing up
to class that semester.
"Is it me?" She asked fellow
faculty members. "Is it a new
trend? Any thoughts?"
The questions opened the
door to a flood of suggestions
and observations. Several profes-
sors noted that the decline cor-
responded closely with the rise in
course materials available on the
Web, while others said too many
instructors are, well, boring.
Statistics lecturer Ani Adhi-
kari, who has won teaching awards
at Berkeley and Stanford, said she
has not seen attendance problems
in her courses. Some of that suc-
cess, she said, is because of the
complicated nature of statistics,
but she also prides herself on her
interactive teaching style.
"Jumping around in front of the
students is always a good thing
Adhikari said in an interview. "If
(students) could get everything they
needed from the book or a podcast,
I would actually not be offended
if they did not show up for class
To hear students talk about
it, one would think nobody ever
misses class.
Fourth-year UC Berkeley liter-
ature major Natalie Pham-Gia, 21,
said she cannot imagine relying on
the Internet for a college education.
"I hope it doesn't get to a
point where it's all done through
the computer Pham-Gia said. "I
think that's really lonely and not
very exciting
Freshman Fei Yang also said
he came to the Berkeley campus to
sit in a classroom.
"When you go to class, you
just learn better said Yang, 17.
"Technology will never be able to
replicate human interaction
But some academics say uni-
versities have yet to see the full
effects of technology on atten-
dance. After all, today's students
are "digital natives having used
computers since childhood.
Rather than policing truancy,
professors will have to find better
ways to use technology to reach
students who do not come to class,
said Diane Harley, a researcher
with UC Berkeley's Center for
Studies in Higher Education.
Students "have tools available
to them that make the concepts of
space and time much more fluid
Harley said. "Students have lives,
and the ability for students to sort
of navigate and juggle their time
reduces their stress.
"The new technologies offer
convenience and flexibility, and
students take advantage of that
Although computer-science
lecturer Americ Azevedo admitted
experiencing an "existential crisis"
when students did not attend his
classes, he said faculty members
should use computers to connect
with the digital natives and to
improve education.
"I think this is an opportu-
nity to have more interaction
with students, not less he said.
"I'm actually getting to the point
where I'm requiring students to
show up so they can see the dif-
ference between online and face-

ECU students called on to aid the Invisible Children'
In northern Uganda, children like these are being stolen from their homes
due to a civil war that's been going on for more than 25 years.
War in Africa moves
students to take action
Imagine this, a twenty year
civil war. Imagine a rebel leader
who has long since lost the sup-
port of the civilian population
is now systematically terrorizes.
Imagine children being stolen in
the night, brainwashed and forced
to fight and kill. Imagine failed
peace talks, international criminal
court warrants and international
apathy. Imagine a loss of hope.
This describes the well docu-
mented current situation in north-
ern Uganda.
Still, despite a lack of attention
from both the media and other
countries, there are people who
have learned of the situation and
are trying to help.
Three filmmakers from Cali-
fornia went to Africa in search
of a story that could "change the
world according to their Web
What they found was a war
that was the direct result of Brit-
ish colonization.
"British authorities utilized
8 'divide and rule' tactics that
J pitted various groups against each
other, a dynamic that has been
perpetuated by post-indepen-
dence politics according to the
Uganda Conflict Action Network
Web site.
The three men filmed the
conflict from the perspective of
the children who are forced to
fight against the Ugandan gov-
ernment, on the side of Joseph
Kony's Lord's Resistance Army
. They set the documentary to
a poprock soundtrack, to make
it appeal to the MTV generation
and sent out a call for young men
and women to get involved.
Anna Azarjew, a sophomore
political science major, and Mack-
enzie Peel, a junior art major, felt
compelled to get involved after
seeing the movie on campus in April.
"I just have a huge heart for
Africa and a huge heart for the
kids. I felt called, like God really
wanted me there said Azarjew.
They decided to host their
own screening of Invisible Chil-
dren in July. However, they went
one step further. They decided to
raise money to send to Invisible
Children, who would in turn, send
the money to Uganda.
They sold Invisible Children
merchandise, had a bake sale and
invited several Christian artists
to sell their wares. In total, they
have raised over $1, 200.
"We never imagined raising
over $1,200 and it's amazing that
we have Azarjew said. "We're
not trying to put it all on our-
selves, we need help from other
people. That's why we are here, to
get help from other people
Still, that was not enough
for Azarjew and Peel. They have
more screenings in the works in
the future. They also wanted to
host an Invisible Children festival
and are in the process of talking
to American Eagle to sponsor the
event, Azarjew said.
"We decided that it is a really,
really urgent cause. We in Amer-
ica have a responsibility to the
world to really show what's going
on Azarjew said. "We pride
ourselves on human rights
and,we pride ourselves in
freedom of everything
These children in Uganda
do not have the freedom to do
many things Americans take for
granted, according to the United
Nations Integrated Regional
Information Networks. Simple
things, such as parents being
able to protect their children and
children being able to go to sleep
in their own homes, without the
fear that they will be kidnapped in
the middle of the night.
And that is what really touched
Azarjew, what really called her
into action.
"The fact that those kids have
to live like adults they have to
fear for their lives every second of
every day. I just think it's unfair
Azarjew said.

Bland wood Mansion staff discover
song about Morehead daughter
(AP) - "The Lost Gem" might not
sparkle as a song, but the staff at
Blandwood Mansion views it as a gem
of another sort.
Blandwood staff members go online

names "Blandwood "Morehead" and

center that occupied Blandwood
for decades after Gov. John Motley
Morehead's family left after living there

" It also said: "The music composed
and respectfully dedicated to Miss
Letitia Morehead by R. Culver
Letitia Morehead was the oldest of
Governor Morehead's five daughters.
Because educational opportunities
were few for young women, Morehead
opened in 1840 the Edgeworth

property extended to Market.
Farrier gets a kick from shoeing
(AP) - Jackie Blackman says the chief
hazard of his job is complacency.
"If you relax and let your guard down,
that's when you're going to get hurt
said Blackman, 51. "I've had a broken
hand, broken foot, broken ribs, most
of the times I've been hurt has been
because of carelessness on my
Blackman shoes horses.
On a recent morning, Blackman's care
was evident. He took his time, making
sure he completed each step in the
process properly before moving on
to the next.
The object of Blackman's attentions
was Winston, a 13-year-old
Standardbred Fayetteville police
Winston is one of thousands of horses
that Blackman, a licensed farrier, has
shod over the years. It's a profession
he found by accident.
Twenty-six years ago, Blackman was
just a horse owner. One day he asked
his farrier, Stephen Eldridge, about
his work.

Suspect Rings Feces In Courtroom
(Duluth News Tribune) - Vandale Amos
Willis, 28, a Chicago man convicted
of importing cocaine into Duluth,
Minnesota, fired his public defender
in the courtroom and elected to
represent himself. That happens.
What happened next has never
before been seen in the St. Louis
County Courthouse or perhaps any
Willis smeared his own feces across
the top of the table where he and
St. Louis County prosecutor Vern
Swanum were sitting and also spread
It on a chair. He threw some more on
the carpeted floor before displaying
even more bizarre behavior.
"He was literally smearing feces on
his face and into his mouth Swanum
said. "He was putting it into his mouth.
That's when he kind of advanced
toward me. As I explained to one of my
compatriots, that's when I decided to

Swanum said Willis has no recorded
history of mental illness. "I think he was
trying to goad the court into declaring
a mistrial Swanum said. "I can't get
into his mind, but I believe it was
intentional manipulative conduct
A St. Louis County sheriff's deputy
removed Willis from the courtroom. He
was brought back to court to complete
the trial Thursday afternoon. The
defendant had requested he be tried
by a judge instead of a jury.
Sixth Judicial District Judge, David
Sullivan, found Willis guilty of all three
crimes he was charged with. They were,
importation of controlled substance
across state borders, first-degree
possession of cocaine with intent
to sell, and first-degree possession
of cocaine. He is scheduled to be
sentenced next month. He faces a
guideline sentence of 86 months in
Sullivan is the judicial district's chief
judge. He declined comment on Willis'
behavior. He could have found Willis in
contempt of court, but didn't.

OK. I know this is a weird thing for me to be
starting out the semester with, but if you've read my
articles before then you probably might expect some-
thing like this. If not, what have you been reading?
How cool is it that 'Peewee's Playhouse" is back
on TV? For those of you who don't know, Cartoon
Network's Adult Swim block has included the old
show in its late-night line-up.
Who would have thought that Laurence Fish-
burne would go from delighting us with his cowboy
antics as Cowboy Curtis, to leading a resistance
against machines and foretelling the prophecy of
"The One" in The Matrix movies?
Or how about S. Epatha Merkerson? Some of
you may know her as Lieutenant Anita Van Buren
from NBC's Law &? Order, but before that she was
delivering mail as Reba the Mail Lady.
Phil Hartman also played a big part in making
Pee-wee a success, from working helping to create
the character, to co-writing Pee-wee's first film. He
even played the character of Captain Carl on the show
and the earlier HBO special.
Before taking-off with his music career and
before he would work on scarier and arguably more
disturbing things, Rob Zombie was a production
assistant for the show.
Pee-wee Herman was created and portrayed by
actorcomedian Paul Reubens. Born Paul Rubenfeld
he grew up in Sarasota, Florida, where his parents
owned a lamp store. During winters, the Ringling
Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus called Sara-
sota home, and called such families as the Wallendas
and the Zacchinis his neighbors. The circus sparked
his interest in entertainment. If anything, Pee-wee's
second movie, Big Top Pee-wee, was probably in
homage to his childhood.
The inspiration for the name "Pee-wee" came
from a Pee-wee brand miniature harmonica and the
surname of an energetic boy Reubens knew from
his youth.
Reubens first appeared in the Film Cheech iS
Chong's Next Movie and in Nice Dreams in 1981.
Reubens also had a part in The Blues Brothers and
Meatballs II.
Reubens then developed a live stage show entitled
The Pee-wee Herman Show which featured many
characters that would go on to appear on the show
we all remember, such as Captain Carl, Jambi the
Genie, Miss Yvonne and Clocky. When it became
successful, he sold it to HBO in 1981, where it was
filmed as an adult comedy special.
In 1985 Reubens and then young director Tim
Burton teamed-up to make the comedy film Pee-
wee's Big Adventure. It cost a relatively modest $6
million to make, but took in $45 million at the box
office and becoming one of the year's surprise hits.
Thanks to the movie's runaway success, in
198B CBS offered Reubens a Saturday morning TV
timeslot, total creative control and a huge budget of
$325,000 per-episode.
When I was younger, I always imagined my first
apartment would be like The Playhouse. Boy if that
isn't way off! Of course now I'm at the age where
you don't want the furniture talking to you, but if
it is. . well. I suggest that you either need to take
something or stop taking something.
Sadly, Reubens' career has been let's say less
than noticeable in the past couple of years, appear-
ing in such cult favorites as Buffy the I'ampire Slayer,
Mystery Men, and Blow, as well as TV guest appear-
ances on "Everybody Loves Raymond and "Reno
911 to name a few.
Reubens legal troubles have even continued
since his first infamous arrest back in 1991. Reubens
was arrested again in 2002 in connection with an
investigation involving child pornography, which
coincided with an unrelated child pornography case
involving actor Jeffrey Jones. On March 22, 2004,
chilli pornography charges against him were dropped
by Los Angeles City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo after
Reubens pleaded guilty to a separate "misdemeanor
obscenity" charge. Public news stories concerning
his case cast doubt upon the suggestion that Reu-
bens intentionally acquired child pornography, as
he stated that he was a collector of "erotic artwork"
and that he had a sizable collection of vintage erotica
with samples dating back to the 18th century.
Despite all of the legal problems he's had,
Reubens once said something in an interview with
Boiling Stone about his work with "Pee-wee's Play-
house" that I think is kind of cool and captures the
real him.
"I'm just trying to illustrate that it's OK to be
different - not that it's good, not that it's bad, but
that it's all right. I'm trying to tell kids to have a
good time and to encourage them to be creative and
to question things
I guess that message will continue on in some
way, as Reubens has made several appearances on
various talk shows stating that new Pee-wee movies
are on the horizon.
Facebook the new
Big Brother?
By now I'm confident that even the freshmen are
familiar with the cult-like trend of Facebook (it's one
thing to choose not to use it, but I would think we
all know what it is by now), so I won't bother going
into detail explaining its every nuance. However, I
must say something about this new "facelift" that it
has been given.
Facebook has single-handedly propelled itself to
the top of the list as far as new breeding grounds
for stalkers go. As if it wasn't taking over our lives
and collegiate culture enough already, Facebook has
found yet another way to make sure we know every
detail of those around us.
I thought the recent addition of blogging capa-
bilities was pushing the original Facebook idea a
bit far, but obviously the ingenious creators in Palo
Alto, Calif, disagreed. For them, being able to see
your friend's pictures, comments and other friends
was not enough. Now we have the ability to see
details from their 10 most recent moves of the day,
to their newly added friends, to their most recent
comments they've made. It is mildly interesting to
know my friend's new favorite novel, but what are
we going to talk about in person now? There's no
point to gossip with girlfriends anymore. I'm sure
Facebook feels it's being creative and helpful once
again, but do you think they have actually stopped
to think about the damper they are going to put on
my relationships, as we will have no secrets left to
gab about after a few weeks of this?
While I'm pretty open about most things,
privacy is important to me and it would seem that
hundreds of other ECU students agree, as groups
such as the "We hate the new stalker layout" activist
group and "I feel like I'm stalking everyone on Face-
book with this new layout" have popped up all over
the site. All the outcries seem to be same, as far as
Facebook was concerned - simple was better. I liked
the clean lines and the minimalist approach it took in
keeping people connected. Myspace is where 1 went
crazy with html and Xanga is where I blogged my
little heart out. I don't need all of this extra "stuff"
on Facebook as far as I'm concerned.
I actually thought my friend's Facebook page
was broken when I saw all of her photos and current
information displayed on her page on the morning
of the changes. It wasn't until I went to my own
profile and my home page, did I realize that Face-
book was not broken, but rather the designers are
playing a sick, permanent joke on the millions of
registered users.
And really, what about all the stalkers out there?
I know people joke around about being a "Facebook
stalker but now as long as you could find a way to
an account, you could seriously be in the know about
someone to a creepy degree. Sure there are privacy
settings, but when is enough, enough?
1 think the best new group I've seen, thanks to the
changes, is "Change Facebook Back, You Fools

Two nights ago some of my friends were
being picked up by a sober driver from
downtown. Despite the fact that he was
doing not only his friends a service but also
the entire community, he was ticketed for
driving at a speed slow enough to impede
traffic. The police here in Greenville are to
scared of any actual police work and would
rather prey on "rich college kids" causing no
harm rather than stop a lager problem, like
say the drug deals and prostitution going on
constantly on the other side of the tracks.
The driver of the brown bus today didn't

taken over the bus and driven drunk. This
was a brilliant, strategic move by Greenville

New problems appear, but that's
OK. You're in no danger of dying
of boredom. Appreciate the un-
eventfulness while it lasts.
You make it look easy, and this
time it is, but don't let that go to
your head. Make sure you let
the others know how much you
appreciate them.
There are a couple of old
promises to keep before you
advance. Make a list. Checking
things off it will propel you
forward. It's amazing.
You can solve the difficulties
you're facing one step at a time.
It's also good to allow yourself an
occasional leap of faith.
You're making a lot of money, but
it's foolish to assume this will go
on forever. It might, but it might
not. Don't throw it all away.
You have an extra advantage,
just because you're so darned
cute! Don't let this go to your
head, however. Also use your
common sense.
Your subconscious mind is
working all the time, even when
you're sleeping. The trick is
to figure out what it has come
up with that might be useful.
Practice remembering.
The less you say or otherwise let
on, the greater your advantage.

person and, of course, you are.
You're also a shrewd negotiator.

You have several ways to make
up the difference. You could
break out the credit cards, or tap
into your savings account. Or you
could sell something. Obviously,
the latter's better.
You'll have a lot of ways during
the next few weeks to meet with
fascinating people and share
exciting ideas. This game doesn't
have to be expensive, but it sure
is a lot of fun.
You're very good at expressing
your opinions now, so speak up.
There's no need to be shy; others
will appreciate your input. You'll
be doing them a service. Just be
sure not to go too far.

Getting creative to make ends meet
Bills can start to pile up if you spend all your money at once. Using credit cards and coupons can postpone debt.
How to buy rounds for
all your friends and still
make rent
Let's be honest- if you are like
most students, the minute you
receive your monthly allowance
from the parentals, it is spent before
the paperwork has been processed
at the bank.
No matter how many times you
tell yourself that this month will be
different and the money will last,
some little emergency comes up and
you find yourself stealing bananas
from the dining hall.
Basically, there are two paths
you can take: stop spending all your
money or essentially keep the cash
flow more constant than the one
deposit made at the first of every
I am more prone to identify with
option two. There are plenty of ways
to make money in this town, and all it
takes is a little ingenuity and an ultimate
sacrifice of your pride and morality.
The most obvious way to
make more money is to get a job.
Plenty of people have them but if
you know that working for "the
man" is a dent in your armor of
self-righteousness, then we can
move along to other modes of
monetary acquisition.
While this isn't an exactly fool-
proof plan, buy a lot of lottery tick-
ets. Somebody has to win, right
Why can't it be you? However, if
you desire more of a challenge in
gambling, secretly learn how to play
Texas Hold 'Em. That way you can
either hustle your friends out of all
their money or go for the big bucks
in online tournaments.
If gambling is too morally offen-
sive, then try a scam that has been
perfected by one of my friends. This
works especially well if you are an
art or interior design major. Make
a call to your favorite parent and
inform that all of a sudden, your
heinous professor has demanded
that you buy more bookssup-
pliesfabricetc. As this is clearly
something your parents will see as
a benefit to your college education,
they will definitely get you the
money that will instead be spent on
killer new boots or simply a night
of carousing.
Also falling into this region of
creative spending is the power of
the gas card. To keep the bill from
getting too high, stop using it solely
for gas (yay public transit!) and buy
from the extensive adult beverage
section for your friends. That lands
you cash in your pocket and beer
in your friends' hands. Everybody
If after all of this, you still find
yourself mooching or eating Ramen
for three meals a day, try exchang-
ing favors with your rich friends
for money. I'm sure that absence of
their maid and the actual possibility
of having to do their own laundry
will make them all too eager to pay
you to do it.
You could also create a ser-
vice that would benefit strangers
and friends alike. Think Shannen
Doherty and become the middleman
when someone wants to break up with
his or her significant other. Best case
scenario, you could score yourself a
AAMN: Let's hear
it for male nurses
American Assembly of Men in
Nursing at ECU
For the most part, when someone says the word
"nurse a female dressed in white comes to mind.
Fortunately times are changing and there is a grow-
ing population of men in the nursing workforce. Here
at ECU, one of the organizations that supports these
male nurses is the American Assembly of Men in
Nursing, or AAMN.
Historically, the earliest evidence of men as
nurses was found in Ayur-Veda, ancient Indian books,
which discuss the prevention and cure of disease. In
these books, the nurses that we mentioned were
always male. In American history, male nurses were
an important part of the Civil War as combat medics
for both the Confederate and Union troops.
The AAMN was first organized in 1971 toencour-
age men of all ages to join the nursing profession, to
support the men who were al ready nurses to grow pro-
fessionally and to be advocates for men's health issues.
According to the national purpose
of the organization is to "provide a framework for
nurses, as a group, to meet, to discuss and influence
factors, which affect men as nurses
At ECU the School of Nursing AAMN chapter
has a simple purpose according to Philip Julian, the
faculty advisor for the chapter: "We are just here to
get the word out to students
Membership, at ECU and nationally, is open to
any nurse, male or female, to better facilitate discus-
sion and to meet the most important objective of
AAMN: strengthening and humanizing health care.
Each year, AAMN holds a conference rotating
the theme so that one year focuses on men's health
issues and the next focuses on issues of gender in
nursing. Like many other professional organizations,
membership is required but can be obtained on many
different levels. Full membership, which is available
to Registered Nurses, includes a voice with a vote
at AAMN meetings, appointment or election to an
AAMN office, quarterly newsletters and reports and

What makes or breaks a
roommate relationship?
It isn't always easy living with someone in a close space, whether it be a dorm room or an apartment as shown above.
The sign on the parking lot at the bottom of College Hill rang true on Friday.
Hurricane season
in North Carolina
Adjusting to life with a
new roommate
Preparing for a new semester is
stressful enough with purchasing
unnecessarily expensive books,
finding the right classrooms and
being submerged among thou-
sands of complete strangers, but
the anxiety of living with an
unfamiliar person outweighs all
other trepidations.
Some people are lucky enough
to be paired up with their "second
half the one person they could
not live without, while others are
more unfortunate and wind up
with Satan's offspring.
A senior mathematics major
spoke about her freshman year
roommate as "an emotionally
unbalanced, un-medicated bi-polar
mess, who four years later is still
four years away from graduating
A sophomore criminal justice
major reported that her room-
mate would have random out-
bursts of rage causing her to shake
uncontrollably, was obsessed with
undressing in front of her web cam
on a nightly basis and would con-
stantly smoke cigarettes in their
tiny, non-smoking dorm room.
Thankfully, not everyone who
lives on campus has horrible room-
mate tales such as these.
It takes a lot of patience and
consideration to have a success-
ful roommate relationship. One
person may need to adjust how
early or late they dry their hair
while the other may need to moni-
tor how loud they watch the
television when their roommate
is studying.
Roommates have to share a
small amount of space for their
belongings and cohabitate in a
cinderblock room, most likely
sharing characteristics much like
a jail cell.
Who sleeps on the top bunk?
Who sleeps on the bottom? Does
a game of rock-paper-scissors
settle that decision or does some-
one actually enjoy scampering up
the side of the beds to their only
sanctuary in the room?
Privacy also becomes an issue.
When living in a residence hall,
there are no barriers. The matter of
privacy goes out of the window.
Roommates can become "best
friends forever" in a matter of days
or they could become each other's
worst enemies. Sometimes both
situations can occur. A triumphant
roommate relationship is based
solely on open communication and
thoughtfulness. If your roommate
is bugging you, the only way they
will know is if you tell them.
Try setting some kind of
schedule if the two of you really
cannot get along. Set aside time
tor both of you can be in the room
alone, without your roommate
bothering you.
Schedule quiet time and try to
do something together, outside of
the room, once a week. This may
help to strengthen your relation-
ship inside the room and realize
that the other person may actually
be human.
Living with someone new can
be challenging but it can also be
fun so long as people have open
minds and honest hearts.

What you need to know
While we may have survived
our first direct hit from Trop-
ical Storm Ernesto with
minimal flooding,
we may not be so
lucky next time
if we are not pre-
pared. Better safe
than sorry, right?
Preparation is
the key to escaping
a hurricane or tropi-
cal storm with minima
damage. One of the first
things that you can do to prepare
for hurricane season is build a
hurricane survival kit. The kit
should include blankets, a battery-
powered radio, non-perishable
food, enough for three to seven
days, water, one gallon per person
for three to seven days, a first
aid kit, flashlights and batteries.
By keeping this kit on hand
you will take the burden of scram-
bling to find things off of your
shoulders so that you can shift
your focus to the safety of yourself
as well as your family.
Next, if an evacuation is issued
for your area, be sure to leave as
soon as possible. Staying in your
home will only put you in more
danger. You can rebuild and
restore damage to your
home, but your life is
irreplaceable, so
don't take any
Have an
evacuation plan
ready so that when
it's time to leave,
you aren't left won-
dering 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.
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.
see HURRICANE page A6

continued from A5
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
season. This year, forecasters at
the National Hurricane Center
predict a very active '2006 Atlantic
hurricane season. An 80 percent
chance of abqve-mirmal hurricane
season activity is reflected in the
predicted amount of activity.
Preparing for hurricanes
Project Road trip: Charlotte, NC
before they strike is a key aspect
for surviving them with a minimal
amount of damage to your life.
When preparing for hurricane
season, we should keep in mind
the devastation from years past,
and look to the future with knowl-
edge and understanding as a way
to minimize the destruction.

Our friends in the
central part of the state
are exciting
First thing's first, you may
have begun reading this article
because the title caught your eye,
or maybe it was the location, but
either way I am excited to intro-
duce you to our new weekly series,
Project Roadtrip.
Each week we here at The East
Carolinian will feature a town or
city within driving distance and
give you all of the dirt on the best
places to visit.
We look forward to intro-
ducing you to some of the most
unique and hidden treasures
found in North Carolina as well as
bordering states.
One of the first places that
came to mind when trying to
pick a city to kick off our series
was Charlotte. It is filled with
a variety things of to do and
places to visit set in a backdrop of
cultural significance.
Charlotte is home to some of
North Carolina's most famous
sports teams, like the Charlotte
Bobcats and the Carolina Pan-
thers. Charlotte also houses
the Lowe's Motor Speedway,
which plays host to NASCAR's
Coca-Cola 600.
If sports aren't your thing, you
may be interested in a day of shop-
ping. Charlotte's Southpark Mall
offers visitors a chance to shop at a
premier variety of stores including
Anthropologie, Coach, Kenneth
Cole, Tiffany's and many more.
Ifyou are interested in heading
out of town a bit, a short drive to
Concord Mills in Concord, N.C
will lead you to an expansive
amount of shopping that won't
break your budget.
Ifyou are up for a day of fun
in the sun, a visit to Paramount's
Carowinds should quench your
thirst for excitement. Carowinds
features tons of thrilling rides as
well as live entertainment that is
sure to please those from every
walk of life.
Carowinds isn't the only place
to enjoy some heart-pounding fun.
Lowe's Motor Speedway, host of the Coca-Cola 600, in Charlotte is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the area.
DeAngelo Williams outruns an opponent at the Carolina Panthers Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, NC.
A visit to Victory Lane Indoor
Carting Center allows visitors
to race go-carts at up to 28 mph
Once you get your adrenaline
rushing, you can keep your buzz
by visiting Laser Quest. The
indoor laser maze offers a variety
of games and levels of difficulty.
After all the excitement you
may be exhausted and tempted to
head back to Pirate Country, but
another good way to wind down
is by visiting Charlotte's Mint
Museum of Art. The museum is
home to permanent collections of
American and European paintings
and furniture as well as African,
pre-Colombian and Spanish art.
A road trip to Charlotte will
take over four hours, but the
experience is definitely worth the
drive. Another plus to the trip
is being able to spend time with
friends and family away from
school and stress.

the places mentioned in this

No matter how bad it gets,
please try to refrain from donat-
ing plasma. I still have holes in my
arms from three years ago and the
smell alone from that place still
gives me nightmares.
Remember to keep your eye
on the prize. Just the fact that you
are in college means that you are
destined to at least reach middle
class stature. One day you will be
able to laugh at how poor you once
were and some of the unsavory
things you did for money. Until
then, keep spending and pray that
you don't overdraw.

Navy loss stings,

Navy is the second-best team ECU will
play all season
ECU put up a tough fight in Annapolis.
But moral victories and five-point losses
aren't what the team needs in a season
where wins are so scarce. The schedule is
brutal and swing games such as Navy are
what will prevent tne Pirates from earning
a postseason berth.
Despite the devastating loss, the Pirates
figure to be alright. They competed hard and
were an onside Kick short of watching ECU
quarterback James Pinkney pull a come-
from-behind win. If only the referee had seen
the Midshipmen special teams player snatch
the ball from Phillip Henry's hands.
People may not realize it now, but Navy
is really that good. Aside frwm Air Forces
variation, Navy is only team in the nation to
run a true triple-option scheme.
The scheme gave ECU's inexperienced
defense fits of trouble as it will with the rest
of the nation.
As Holtz had predicted, the unproven
linebacking unit was exposed as the Navy
offensive line repeatedly cut blocked them
across the line of scrimmage.
Navy is the second-best team that ECU
will play all year. The Midshipmen have a
light schedule coming from the independent
ranks with Notre Dame serving as the only
sure loss.
Clearly, West Virginia showed with a 42-
10 blowout of Marshall that they are ECU's
best opponent. Virginia's offseason player
attrition was exposed as Pittsburg downed
the Wahoo's 38-13.
N.C. State's ineptitude on offense con-
tinued as Marcus Stone struggled to pass
against Division I-AA opponent Appalachian
According to sources, Navy Head Coach
Paul Johnson was unhappy with quarterback
Brian Hampton's performance. According to
Johnson, the first-time starter missed several
reads in the confusing triple option scheme.
Fans didn't notice as the senior signal-
caller rushed for 149 yards. Adam Ballard is
an imposing figure, standing at 223 pounds
and striking fear up the middle while bar-
reling over defenders.
Yet ECU stood tough. They did break
a few times, watching Navy pound out 403
yards on the ground. Despite the loss, even
Head Coach Skip Holtz feels better about
losing this season's opener than winning
24-21 against Duke in 2005.
"I was pleased with what normally hap-
pens during a first game said Holtz. "Kick-
ing blunders, having long kick-off returns
for touchdowns, poor operation on your field
goals, turnovers on offense are some things
that occur for teams during their opening
game, but I was pleased with how we handled
the ball
The football adage is that a team improves
the most from game one to game two. The
newcomers have adjusted to the speed of the
game while getting the butterflies out. As
the amount of repetitions continue to mount,
so does the comfort level of the team.
"Most of the mistakes that we saw from
the Navy game are fixable Holtz said. "Last
year we made a bunch of personnel moves out
of the gate, but we won t do that this year.
It's just a case that freshman are going to
have to play like juniors. There's not a pill
for that. Its just going to take more hard
work and some time to solve some of those
Now the key is to fix the season opener
woes with a win at UAB. If they don't, things
could head south quickly.

Tennis teams looking for strong fall showing
Men tout best recruiting
class in school history
Shawn Heinchon and Tom
Morris hope to take KCU tennis
to new heights. The men's and
women's tennis coaches respec-
tively hope to execute better after
experiencing only mild success
last spring.
Heinchon is entering his third
season on staff and his second as
ECU's head men's coach. Again, the
squad will be inexperienced w ith
plenty of youth mixed throughout
the roster. In order to better the 8-
13 overall record and seventh place
Conference-USA finish, Heinchon
expects vast improvement across
the board.
"Our goals for the season are
to simply work as hard as ;e can
everyday 9aid Heinchon. "As far
as the numbers go we would like
to make improvements on last
year's results meaning our C-USA
finish and a better team record,
8-13 in 2005
With only two juniors on
the roster, Mike Catalano and
Henrique Viana will be forced to
show leadership responsibilities.
Catalano, a Williamston, NY.
native totaled a record of 12-15
in singles competition and a 2-8
record in doubles in the spring.
Viana, a Brazilian native, tallied
a 12-18 record in singles and 8-13
in doubles competition.
"I would consider all of our
guys leaders in their own right, but
junior Henrique Viana & sopho-
more Brian Walters have gone
above and beyond in the leader-
ship category both on and off the
court Heinchon said.
Sophomores Walters and Ales-
key Kochetov should be improved
after a year of Division I competi-
tion under their belts. Walters was
12-l(j in singles competition, while
being 6-11 in doubles competition
last year. Kochetov notched a 12-
17 in singles competition though
playing considerable tougher
opponents. He was 7-14 in doubles
The team's recruiting class
could be the focal point of the
team. Local favorite Greg Simon,
from nearby J.H. Rose High
School, reached the finals of the
Class 4-A state doubles champi-
onship with an improbable run
as the tourney underdog before
falling in three competitive sets.
According to the ECU's official
Web site, Simon also was selected
as the program's most valuable
player and received both Rose's
coaches and leadership award In
addition to his four year all-con-
ference accolades, he was chosen
as the league's player of the year.
The gem of the recruiting class
is Whit Whitwell. Whitwell,
who earned a No. l United States
Tennis Association state ranking
in the 18's Division after compil-
ing a No. 2 rating in the 16's,
captured a singles title for Little
Rock's Lutheran High School as
a sophomore while competing in
Arkansas' 2-A prep classification.
As a freshman, Whitwell played
a key role in leading Lutheran to
a state doubles championship. He
also reached the Sweet Sixteen at
the National Copper Bowl, one
of the nation's most prestigious
Junior Tennis tourneys.
During the summer, Whitwell
was rated the second-highest
prospect in Arkansas by Ten- Whitwell has
posted a 25-6 national record
against opponents designated in a
similar classification or lower. He
also holds a top 30 regional rank
and is listed among the top 200
players nationally after attending
Newk's Tennis Academy in Texas
over the past two years.
The recruiting class is rounded
out by Will Peeler, Bryan Oakley
and Samuel McSpadden. The 2006
class has been ranked by TennisRe- as one of the nation's
top SO classes and best among all
other C-USA programs.
The schedule remains tough
as ECU travels to Wilmington,
Raleigh and Chapel Hill and
Charleston, S.C. for various tour-
naments. The team starts a three
day matchup with UNCW, which
will start on Sept. 8.
"Our key matches this year
are not going to be just one match
Heinchon said. "We have seven or
eight nationally ranked teams that
we are fortunate enough to have on
our schedule
Women's tennis
The women's tennis team
enters the season with plenty
of optimism. Morris is return-
ing for his ninth season as head
coach. Morris' 115 wins marks
him as ECU's all-time winnineest
women's tennis coach.
Morris is hoping to break his
career-high 19 wins that the team
posted in the spring. With the
momentum brewing from a sixth-
place seed and a C-USA tourna-
ment win, expectations continue

(SID) On Navy: After
watching the film against Navy,
it's really frustrating to lose a
game like this. I think these play-
ers have worked so hard and put
their heart and soul out there on
the field. It wasn't a lack of effort
that put us at 0-1 at this point.
Navy did a nice job or running the
football with the scheme of what
they do. They have a lot of move-
ment, quickness and athleticism
on their front seven that caused
a lot of disruption on both sides
of the ball.
On the first game: 1 was
pleased with what normally hap-
pens during a first game. Kicking
blunders, having long kick-off
returns for touchdowns, poor
operation on, your field goals,
turnovers on offense are some
things that occur for teams during
their opening game, but I was
pleased with how we handled the
On the offensive and defen-
sive line: The front seven on
defense and offensive line is where
we have our most inexperience.
The same thing that we were con-
cerned about during camp is what
hurt us on the field. The offensive
line, with three new starters up
front and the youth on our defen-
sive front played cautious, hesitant
and like they hadn't played before.
When you play an offense that
is attacking and aggressive like
Navy, it just takes a little hesi-
tancy with the way they hit their
fullback, traps and options and at
that point it is too late.
Marcus Hands did some good
things and C.J. Wilson really
played well for his first game.
Mark Robinson is really playing
well for us right now as a nose
guard and played a very com-
petitive football game. Wendell
Chavis stepped in and did some
good things and Brandon Setzer
played pretty decent before he
was injured.
On the linebackers: When
you look at the linebacker position,
you have a whole lot of guys who
have never played. Quentin Cotton
did a pretty nice job along with
Van Eskridge, who made some
big plays. There were times when
you would look and be impressed
with what Fred Wilson and Jarrett
Wiggins did. There were so many
positive things such as how Van
Eskridge was running to the ball.
At the same time, on the very next
play they would go the wrong way.
We played very inconsistent like a
lot of inexperienced players do.
On the skill positions: When
you look at the wide receivers, run-
ning backs and James Pinkney, I
was very pleased with how they
performed on the offensive side
of the ball. I thought James had a
great day. He would like to have
four or five passes back that he
threw, but at the end of the day he
completed 69 percent of his passes
and threw for 283 yards. I thought
he played very well in the game.
The secondary played good
as well. It wasn't a coverage game
for them, but more of a run sup-
port kind of game. I thought the
seniors and the experience on this
football team played pretty well
and that's what makes this so frus-
trating right now because half of
your team is very senior laden and
experienced. Then when you go
to your front seven, you are start-
ing five freshman or sophomores.
Football is won on the offensive
and defensive line.
On injuries: Pierre Bell is still
unknown for this week. He has a
lack of strength right now in his
shoulder and we'll evaluate that as
we go. Brandon Setzer will be out
a minimum of two and a maximum
of four weeks with where he is now
with an injury to his knee. Drew
Sutton, who is a senior center,
was hurt during camp and he is
expected back by the end of the
week. Norman Whitley has been
out of practice for a week and will
have to undergo shoulder surgery
sometime next week.
On UAB: Everyone keeps
talking about how they lost their
quarterback in Hackney and how
it will be a different team with
the lack of his explosiveness as an
offensive weapon. They just played
at Oklahoma and lost 24-17. It
wasn't a fluke. They are starting
17 seniors on this football team.
Hackney may be gone but every-
one else is back. The strength of
their football team is not only their
experience but their defense. They
held Oklahoma to 14 first downs,
140 yards rushing and 230 yards
in passing. Oklahoma had a screen
play that went for 70 yards after
he broke about four tackles. If you
take that one play out of there, they
held Oklahoma to 300 yards on the
day. They created four turnovers,
had two great interceptions and
they forced two fumbles.
On the offensive side of the
ball they have changed everything.
Now that they have a new quarter-
back they run much more option.
They are spreading the field,
running the quarterback, chang-
ing their formations and running
out different personnel groups.
They averaged 5.5 yards per play
against Oklahoma. They do a
great job of protecting the ball. I
don't believe they had a turnover a.
in their opening game. They held
the ball for 35 minutes.
Skip Holtz complains about an
penalty in the fourth quarter.

a stronger arm. Both were evi-
dent Saturday. Pinkney, who is
now bench pressing over 300
pounds, did a good job of finding
the open receiver when he had
the time, and when under duress,
getting rid of the ball and avoid-
ing sacks.
Petty added that Pinkney's
growth as a leader has been
evident from the start of camp,
as well as the added punch in
his arm.
Pinkney's first touchdown
pass, a rifle shot to Kevin Roach
in the front right corner of the
end zone, was a play created by
Pinkney. He was flushed from
the pocket, rolled to his right
and sniped the ball on a rope to
Roach, just in front of the defen-
sive back and only where Roach
could get it.
Pinkney's other touchdown
pass went to junior wideout
Phillip Henry as the senior
signal caller took advantage of
ECU'S depth at the skill posi-
tions by finding nine different
Pinkney, who threw for
over 2,700 yards a season ago
with 14 touchdown passes and
eight interceptions, expects to
improve on those numbers this
year. In order to put up better
statistics in 2006, he will need
to get better protection from his
young offensive line. The Pirates
were inconsistent running the
ball against Navy, netting just
76 yards, and Pinkney was under
constant pressure. He was sacked
just once, but that was more of a
tribute to his ability to get rid of
the ball.
"James took a beating Holtz
said immediately following the
game in Annapolis. "We couldn't
protect him. There were times
where we had guys running wide
open down the field and you look
back in the backfield and James
is running for his life. He made
some really good decisions and
played really well I think it's
just a shame we couldn't give him
more time
Aundrae Allison, who was
Pinkney's go-to guy last year with
83 receptions for 1,024 yards and
seven scores, caught six passes for
86 yards Saturday and said he was
impressed with Pinkney's play
and leadership on the field.

said Knight.
Knight said it takes a while
for all these agencies to gather
the information that is specific
to ECU.
Other information that can be
beneficial for students is the ECU
crime logs, which are located on
the ECU Web site and are open
for anyone to access.
The crime logs break down
the crime or alleged crime in
specific detail. It breaks down
the place, date and time the crime
or alleged crime took place.
It also list what the crime or
alleged crime is, and whether it
is has been closed or if it is still
under investigation.
In the crime log for 2006,
there are at least six alleged inci-
dents involving sexual assault,
rape or assault to a female that are
still under investigation.
The North Carolina State
Bureau of Investigation Division
of Criminal Information is also a
database that people can access
crime statistics.
Major Kevin Smeltzer of the
Greenville police department
said, According to the SBI We
site, ECU reported two rapes on
campus in 2005
"As for the crime stats they
can be very misleading unless
you know what you are looking
at and how they are accumulated
Smeltzer said.
Smeltzer says various
agencies classify crimes dif-
ferently for a wide variety of
reasons. Although rape is
classified uniformly across
the board, sexual assault
is more likely to be classi-
fied differently. How agencies
classify attempted rape and
aggravated assault varies widely

Perks for law interns
(KRT) Jerry Taylor was
all nerves before he started his
summer internship at the Seattle
law firm of Garvey Schubert Barer.
He worried about the workload,
whether he would impress his supe-
riors, whether the other attorneys
would be tough on him.
As a 23 - year - old student
with two more years of law school
ahead of him, he was under a lot
of pressure.
But Taylor's anxiety melted
away when he arrived at the law
firm and was ushered into his
private office with sweeping views
of Puget Sound and a nameplate
on the door. The lunches, parties
and recreation trips that followed
helped, too.
"I love this company said Taylor,
a Seattle University student.
Welcome to the high-pressure
yet perk-filled world of summer
law internships, where firms
compete to lure "summer associ-
ates who can walk away with
$100,000-a-year job offers more
than a year before they graduate.
Every summer, law-school
students from around the coun-
try file into the hushed, high-rise
interiors of Seattle law firms for
what seasoned attorneys refer to
as a "12 week job interview
As in most major cities, dozens
of Seattle firms rely on this con-
stant succession of fresh brain-
power to build their permanent
ranks. The experience, by most
accounts, is part legal boot camp
and part social junket.
The programs allow students
to spend the summer writing
memos, doing legal research,
conferring with clients and soak-
ing up everything they can from
veteran attorneys.
Interns also devote a chunk
of their time lunching at Seat-
tle's top eateries, cruising the
region's waterways, trekking
to company retreats and tipping
back gratis martinis.
Contrary to the intern stereo-
type, summer law associates are
not treated as lowly hangers-on,
sent to pick up partners' dry clean-
ing or lattes.
Firms compete for top stu-
dents after meeting them on
annual recruiting trips at law
schools around the country. A
typical summer associate at a mid-
size Seattle firm earns the weekly
equivalent of $100,000 a year.
"It's a very exciting time
for the firm when the summer
associates show up. These are the
best from America's law schools
said Craig Miller, partner and
chair of the hiring committee
for the Seattle office of Davis
Wright Tremaine.
