ECU remembers 9-11, honors victims
President Bush and first lady Laura Bush participate
in a wreath laying ceremony commemorating the fifth
anniversary of the attacks of Sept. 11 in Shanksville, Penn
ECU's Sept. 11 memorial ceremony was sponsored by Students for Defense of Democracies, a local chapter of the
Foundation for Defense of Democracies.
Memorial held outside
Mendenhall in
KIMBERI.Y BELLAMY
STAFF WRITER
Two members of the founda-
tion for defense of democracies,
Chris Federici and Joel Carter,
organized a .9-11 memorial to pay
tribute to those who sacrificed
their lives in the tragedy.
The memorial was one of the
student's requirements in affiliation
with their recent trip to Israel and
their membership in the non-par-
tisan anti-terrorism organization.
The memorial took place in the
brickyard outside of Mendenhall
Student Center at 0 p.m. on
Monday, Sept. 11, tfOOfi.
Speakers for the event included
Lieutenant Colonel Dennis Mill-
sap, professor of aerospace stud-
ies for ECU's Air Force JROTC.
Major Kevin Smeltzer, opera-
tions bureau commander for the
Greenville Police Department
and Captain Wayne Harris of the
Greenville Fire Department.
Other attendees included Dr.
Marylyn Sheerer, Interim Vice
Chancellor for student life, Keri
Brockett, SGA secretary, troops
from the Army National Guard
students and faculty.
Local television media was
present for the event also such as
WITN-7,W'NCT-9andWCTI-i
Federici made the opening
remarks for the event and made it
clear that even though the event
happened five years ago, people
shouldn't become apathetic to the
threat of terrorism.
Lt. Col. Millsap addressed the
importance of the attacks by com-
paring it to the feeling Americans
experienced in 194 with the Pearl
Harbor attack.
Major Smeltzer said that he
was reluctant to agree to speak for
the event because he felt that he
wouldn't be a good representative
of how other police officers felt that
risked their lives that day.
Smeltzer also told a story
about him seeing a picture of a
police officer saving a woman and
child and knowing that the officer
was afraid because he had to go
back into the building by his face
that was (lushed white.
Captain Harris described how
the word hero is used so loosely
today and that to him everyone
that sacrificed their lives in the
attacks are heroes.
One thing that all the speakers
had in common is them bring-
ing up the fact that a majority
of Americans, including them,
remember exactly where they
were and what they were doing
when they heard about the attacks.
The memorial also included
about a five minute slide show of
pictures of the world trade center,
victims, firefighters, police officers
and others that was involved in
the attacks.
The speaker and Federici and
Carter stressed the fact that terror-
ism is still very much a threat today.
Carter concluded the event g
by saying that American must J
actively participate in fighting
against terrorism so that similar
events won't occur. &

Most college students have the
mindset that they won't be affected
by AIDS. What they don't know is
that instances of AIDS are increas-
ing among college age students.
In the United States, half of
all people infected with HIV are
between the ages of 13 and !24.
This means that every hour, two
young Americans will contract
IIIV, according to amfar.org.
In response to this growing
problem, the Kmissaries, Alpha
Phi Alpha, Sigma Gamma Rho,
Phi Beta Sigma, NAACP, Sisters
and Campus Wellness sponsored
H.L.A.CK.O.U.T, an AIDS aware-
ness party. B.L.A.C.K.O.U.T
which stands for Blacks, Latinos,
Asians and Caucasians Keeping
Out the AIDS virus in our commu-
nity, was held last Friday, Sept. H,
in Mendenhall Student Center.
H.L.A.CK.O.U.T. was held to
educate students and make them
aware of the growing problem
young people are facing.
"IIIV has been nicknamed the
disease of young people said Jes-
sica Ledbetter, senior and member
of the Emissaries.
"The Emissaries, along with
various other organizations, have
collaborated on this project to
ensure that ECU students are not
only educated about HIV, but are
aware of the devastating effects it is
having on our local community
Educating students about the
virus and promoting safe sex were
the main goals of the party.
"Safety is our biggest concern
said Michael Coplin, senior and
secretary of Alpha Phi Alpha.
"We are not preaching absti-
nence, we are preaching safety and
ways to protect yourself
To promote safe sex, condoms
and safe sex kits were given out
throughout the night. Rapid IIIV
tests were also available at the
party. Students could receive an
IIIV test and have their results
back within SO minutes.
"One of the most important
activities at the party were the
HIV tests Coplin said.

"Dr. Trible has been a

that much of the body of scripture in

the express intent of turning
the female gender into scape-
goats for the ills of the world.
Generally one of the largest
debates in Biblical interpreta-
tion is the actual interpretation
of the Bible. The role of women
in the Bible is debatable just
as the interpretation of the
Bible is. It seems this topic

Top 10 Reasons to give blood!
10. You will get free
juice and cookies.
9. You will weigh less - one
pint less when you leave
than when you came in.
8. It's easy and convenient
- it only takes about an hour.
7. It's something you can
spare - most people have
blood to spare yet, there is
still not enough to go around.
6. Nobody can ask you to do
any heavy lifting as long as
you have the bandage on. You
can wear it for as long as you
like. It's your badge of honor.
5. You will walk a little
taller afterwards - you will
feel good about yourself.
4. You will be helping to ensure
that blood is there when you or
someone close to you may need
it. Most people don't think they'll
ever need blood, but many do.
3. It's something you can do on
equal footing with the rich and
famous - blood is something
money can't buy. Only something
one person can give to another.
2. You will be someone's hero
- you may give a newborn,
a child, a mother, a father,
a brother or a sister another
chance at life. In fact, you
may help save up to three
lives with just one donation.
1. It's the right thing to do.

The S. Rudolph Alexander Per-
forming Arts Series, East Carolina
University's flagship professional
performance series, has opened
season ticket sales for the 2006-
2007 season.
For over four decades, the series
has brought major orchestras, the-
atrical productions, choirs, soloists
and dance companies to campus
to perform in Wright Auditorium.
In this season, six performances
will be preceded by informal dinner
discussions hosted by profes-
sors and regional celebrities, and
catered by Lopaus Point Market.
This year, the international prize-
winning pianist Alexander Kobrin,
winner of the Van Cliburn Gold
Medal, kicks off the season on
Sept. 27. The artist, who has
recorded Liszt and Chopin for
international labels, has appeared
in a film documentary about the
Cliburn Competition, which aired
on PBS stations nationally in 2005
and 2006.
Jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton, the
Jazz Week vocalist of the year,
brings her band to campus on Oct.
3. Sutton's voice is heard on com-
mercials representing BMW, Coca
Cola, Dodge, and J.C. Penney, as
well as on multiple
film scores and five acclaimed
CDs. The Wisconsin-born choir girl
claims one of the most successfully
runs in the history of New York's
legendary Oak Room, leading to
her 2005 Carnegie Hall debut with
the New York Pops.

exuberant musical theatre master-
piece, directed and conducted by
Albert Bergeret with choreography
by Bill Fabris, is performed in its
original format. The company's
vibrancy, energy and contempo-
rary sense of humor keep the show
alive and exciting to a modern
audience. The musical is sched-
uled for Oct. 17.
L.A. Theatre Works, America's
leading radio theatre company,
presents The Caine Mutiny Court
Martial, based on the Pulitzer
Prize-winning novel The Caine
Mutiny. The semi-staged produc-
tion is a brilliant courtroom tragedy
featuring all-stars Eric Stoltz
(Chicago Hope) and David Selby
(Falcon Crest). Scheduled for Nov.
7, the performance is both familiar
and novel.

City Hall showcases local art work
Citizens in City Hall for meetings,
paying bills or other business may
find the walls decked with art.
The City and Greenville Museum
of Art are utilizing the empty wall
space to showcase the work of
local artists.
"We talked about getting some art
for the Mayor's office said Mayor
Don Parrott, "then it evolved into
an arrangement with the Greenville
Museum of Art to supply art to the
whole building. I think it's a great
way to partner with and support
the local artistic community
Jennifer Hodges with the Greenville
Museum of Art said, "We're very
excited and happy. I think it's great
for everybody.
The city workers have something
pleasing on the wall to look at, and
the public gets to see this local art.
For the Museum - it gets us out
there and lets people know what
we do. And it's also good for the
artist - it's good exposure for their
works, they might sell something,
and it's another thing they can put
on their resume
The artwork will change every four
months, so the interior of City Hall
will get a fresh look three times a
year.
City staff has created a guide for
the pieces on display.
Included are names, the artist,
size, medium, and price if you're
interested in purchasing the work.
There are a few art guides avail-
able at the reception desk, or you
can visit the City's Web site at
greenvillenc.gov to print a guide for
yourself.
DWI Checkpoints: Tools that get
drunk drivers off the roadways
Checkpoints conducted
at random, event-
specific dates
CHRISTOPHER STEVENSON
STAFF WRITKH
On Aug. 26, members of the
Greenville Police Department
along with several other law
enforcement agencies, including
the ECU Police Department, con-
ducted a Driving While Impaired
checkpoint
Held at the intersection of East
Fifth Street and Green Springs
Drive, the checkpoint started at 10
p.m. and concluded at 2:35 a.m.
The police at the check-
point tagged people with a vari-
ety of violations. The two most
common vehicle violations were
expired registrations and inspec-
tions, but the biggest violations at the
checkpoint were the 10 DWI arrests.
"The goal of the checkpoint is to
encourage individuals not to drink
and drive said Ralph Whitehurst,
administrative sergeant of
the ECU Police Department.
Whitehurst said by increasing
the chances of someone getting
caught driving after drinking, the
ECU Police Department hopes
these checkpoints will discourage
this highly unsafe act.
Police want everyone to pay
attention to the message that it's
not safe to drink and drive.
"If people haven't gotten
that message, the message of
the checkpoint is that you never
know when or where there may
be another said Major Kevin
Smeltzer of the Greenville Police
Department.
There will definitely be more
DWI checkpoints in the future. In
the Greenville area, both random
dates and event-specific dates are
chosen, including Halloween.
Whitehurst said a town or
neighborhood can also request a
checkpoint to be conducted in their
area to educe the number of viola-
tions and to increase the safety of
the roadways.
"Checkpoints are usually set up
at key roads leading in and out of
the Greenville downtown area for
obvious reasons Whitehurst said.
The DWI checkpoints
do not target ECU students spe-
cifically.
"Since the university is adjacent
to the downtown area, students as
well as non-students are likely
to encounter these checkpoints
Whitehurst said.
"It's been my observation in
the past 20 years that ECU gener-
ally has received this message and
you see them walking, riding the
bus or with a designated driver in
greater numbers than years ago
Smeltzer said
Many people get their first
taste of alcohol in college, which
can bring a nood of problems if
that person not responsible under
the influence. Whitehurst stressed
that students should not drink
while underage.
"Just about all sexual assaults
and physical assaults involve
alcohol in some way Whitehurst
said.
Students should use a des-
ignated driver if they decide to
drink. Transit buses and the Safe
Ride program offer alternatives
to driving.
"If an intoxicated person is
causing problems then they will
be refused a ride and police officers
w ill take appropriate enforcement
actions against the individual
Whitehurst said.
When a student drinks
to the point of intoxication, they
endanger themselves and other
people.
Whitehurst said, at this point,
the student is more likely to
commit acts of vandalism, and if
he or she drives a car, could kill an
innocent bystander.
If a student is found c
to be overly intoxicated, they will t
be transported to the hospital, at -c
the cost of approximately $700. i3
Students can go to transit.

Enjoy playing computer games? Perhaps you should relocate to Santa Cruz, California where they are teaching students to design video games.
Santa Cruz University launches computer-gaming major
(MCT) New at the Uni-
versity of California-Santa Cruz:
Not only can students spend gobs
of time on computer games, they
can major in them, too.
The school, known for its laid
back, frisbeeplaying ambience,
is quite serious about its new
major in computer game design,
the first in the University of Cali-
fornia system.
Administrators said in July
that the interdisciplinary pro-
gram, coordinated by the Com-
puter Science department, will
prepare students for high-tech
jobs by exposing them to both the
technical and the artistic virtues
of game design.
As might be expected, stu-
dents like the new program.
"The major is a great idea,
and it's probably going to get tons
and tons of new students to come
to Santa Cruz said sophomore
Chris Carlsson, who is majoring
in economics but is extremely
well acquainted with computer
games.
The capstone of the major will
be a yearlong project for seniors.
Student teams will develop a
video game from start to finish.
Pohl said the new program
will capitalize on the school's
proximity to Silicon Valley and
the opportunities available in
the multi-billion video game
industry.
"The Santa Cruz culture all
along has been a culture of experi-
mentation and interdisciplinary
work said Ira Pohl, chair of the
Computer Science department.
Without knowing all of the
details, computer game industry
analysts said it is tough to assess
the program's quality or judge
how desirable its graduates might
be for employers.
Students who think they want
to "study" video games should
think carefully before they pursue
that path, an industry veteran
advised.
"People think playing games
is easy so designing them
must be fun But, like anything
else, it's hard work. And it
requires a lot of effort said Erie
Goldberg, a '2H-year veteran of
the computer game industry and
managing director of Crossover
Technologies. Still, he said, "I'd
love to see people get the formal
training that was not available
to me
Several schools have launched
game design departments during
the past decade, including the
University of Southern Califor-
nia, Southern Methodist Univer-
sity and Carnegie Mellon.
Santa Cruz professors spoke
with game designers at Electronic
Arts and Microsoft to get a feel
for their needs.
The new major will
require students to understand
how to program games, not just
how to make the graphics. "They
won't be an art student retrained
to do a little programming Pohl
said.

alike in the old days.
Sweaters and pearls starred
in one era. Blazers and preppy
khakis ruled in another. Plaid
grunge once dominated. But
times change.
Today's young scholars are
more creative. They may have
many of the same items as their
dorm roommates. They have the
skinny dark blue jeans, the mes-
sage T-shirts, hooded sweatshirts
and puffy vests.
But do they want to look the same
as their roommates? Probably not.
They prefer to set themselves
apart with a little tweak. Making
a statement is a priority. They'll
mix unlikely layers and relish
juxtapositions even when they
draw raised eyebrows.
"A guy will wear a hooded
sweatshirt and a puffy parka with
shorts and thongs. They love
o thongs. They wear them with
everything. But it should look as
if it was picked up off the dorm
room floor
Marshal Cohen, senior fashion
analyst for NPU, which tracks
shopping trends, says students may
buy a new pair of jeans but because
they start out with summer clothes,
they usually wait until later in the
fall for serious shopping.
"They don't want to show
up with stuff that was cool in
Wisconsin but not in Chapel Hill,
N.C Cohen says.
At the same time, students
are devoting money to furnish-
ing dorm rooms and apartments.

Vintage is one popular fall style.
College kids have returned to
fashion, Cohen says. For a time,
they were spending their money
on electronics. But now it's about
the dorm room, having the cool
coffeemaker, towels and pillows!
"It's all about style he says.
In general fashion trends,
young women want to separate
themselves from the guys. They
are wearing skirts, Cohen says,
and leggings are a surprise hit.
Pants in menswear fabrics in a
range of shapes, including wide
legs, are likely hits. And some
women will love the gauchos.
BLACKOUT
continued from Al
"One out of four people with
AIDS don't know they have it
For the event, Mendenhall was
decorated with signs that showed
statistics about HIV and AIDS.
Pamphlets and information on
the causes and symptoms of AIDS
were passed out throughout the
night to educate students. Party-
goers received pamphlets on the
correct way to use condoms, and
they also received information
that corrected many myths about
HIV and AIDS.
The sponsors of
BLACKOUT held the event to
help students become aware of the
problem and talk about the virus.
"AIDS is a silent killer that
has no face, friends or boundar-
ies Ledbetter said.
"It is ravaging entire commu-
nities because no one is willing to
talk about it
Although there are many AIDS
awareness activities on campus, the
goal of B.L.A.C.K.O.UT. was to
bring everyone together for one
unified event. At one a.m the
party was blacked out in a tribute
to all those who are living with or
have died from Al DS. The blackout
began at one a.m. and lasted four
minutes, representing that one in
four people infected with AIDS do
not know they have it. Students
were given glow sticks which they
held up in unison to demonstrate
their combined effort in ending the
spread of HIV and AIDS.
More than 350 people attended
the party and the event raised
$920. All of the proceeds were
donated to Picaso, Pitt County's
AIDS service organization.
Picaso is a local organization
that provides services to those
infected with AIDS in Pitt County
and surrounding areas. They offer
financial services, housing assis-
tance, transportation and support
to those infected with the virus.
Picaso also provides educational
programs to churches, schools and
youth groups to help stop the spread
of AIDS in the Greenville area,
according to picaso.org.
"This is only the beginning
said Ledbetter.
"We are going to continue host-
ing events on campus because we
really want to keep people aware
and get the message out there

Not just for Pirate Rants
Brody Ruckus:
Hero or total
lunatic?
Either way, you have to give the
man credit for a good idea
RACHEL KING
NEWS EDITOR
On Sept. 8, at approximately 9 p.m I
joined a movement. I did not know it then,
but I certainly do now. With all the contro-
versy swirling around recent changes to the
online networking site Facebook, It is only
fair that I point out another major change
in the system: A brand new group called, if
this group reaches 100,000, my girlfriend
will nave a threesome The founder of the
group and leader of the exponentially grow-
ing affair? A man named Brody Ruckus,
from Atlanta, Ga.
The group was created on Sept. 5 at about
3 p.m. By 7 p.m it had about 200 members.
By Sept. 7, there were 7,000. At 1 a.m. on
Sept. 8, there were 50,000 of us pulling for
Ruckus' threesome with his girlfriend. Holly
and a third, yet unknown member. Only
12 short hours later, the group had gained
another amazing 30,000 people to bring the
total up to 83,300 members. Keep in mind
that the group had only existed since Tues-
day afternoon. At 4:05 p.m. Friday after-
noon, the group hit its goal of 100,000.
I call it a movement Because of the expo-
nential rate of growth of the group and the
attention it has already gleaned. Idare say
you have probably heard of the group or have
joined by now yourselves, since practically
everyone on my friend list has, too. I find it
amazing mind-boggling, even, that a single
man - a regular person-can hatch an idea
so ridiculously effective that in the space
of four or so days, he's already met his goal
and then some.
The back-story? Basically, Ruckus and
his girlfriend had been sitting around talk-
ing about the largest group on Facebook (it
boasts over 800,000 members) and made a
friendly bet that Ruckus couldn't come up
with something that would gain that kind
of attention. One of those, "It can't be done
kind of exchanges. He affirmed that with
the right idea, not only could it be done, it
could De done in epic proportions. And so
it began.
Supporters of Ruckus and his carnal
dreams have already made everything from
posters to t-shirts to journals emblazoned
with his name and his cause. After all, as
Ruckus says, what hot-blooded college boy
isn't looking to indulge in a "naked sand-
wich?" Links provided on the group details
page allow members to purchase a button or
sticker proclaiming their support.
"I helped Brody Ruckus reach 100,000
some say. Girls' shirts include phrases such
as "Pick me for the threesome, Brody
VHl has even been contacted in hopes of
featuring Ruckus on an episode of "Best
Week Ever Hey, it could happen.
However, with the immense and immedi-
ate success of this group, the deal between
Ruckus and his girlfriend morphed into
something even more outrageous. Sup-
posedly, if the group can reach 300,000,
Ruckus will be allowed to take pictures. If it
becomes the largest group on Facebook (who
knows?), he win be allowed to film it.
As of Sunday around noon, the member-
ship tally grows upwards of over 180,000. By
the way, in the original bet, Ruckus techni-
cally has until Dec. 31 to reach his new goal
of largest group ever. Not a bad start, one
must admit.
In one final change of events, Ruckus and
his girlfriend agreed to allow group mem-
bers to vote on the third member from girls
on Facebook that have actually requested
to be involved. Voting time has not been
announced yet, but they won't see my vote.
Enough is enough ana it's starting to go
a little too far for me, but isn't it amazing
to see what can happen with the right idea
in the right medium directed at the right
audience? Although I have my own personal
feelings about threesomes and don't agree
with everything the group promotes and
represents, I joined because it was funny and
I was amazed. Now I'm glad I did. It makes
for an interesting story and I wouldn't be
surprised to see it on national news. Check
it out for yourself.
Pirate Advice
In the back-to-school issue, we promised
you changes to the Opinions page, and that's
just what you're going to get. Our first change
isn't so much of a change, as it is an addition.
As of tomorrow, there will be a weekly advice
column included on the page. There you will
find one of ECU's resident experts on school,
work, relationships of all kinds and everything
in between.
So if you've already asked your friends for
advice on something and it got you nowhere
or if you just want to try out our new column,
drop us a line where you send your Pirate
Rants and title it "Advice and we'll do our
best to help you out. And for those of you with
near perfect lives, read on in the weeks ahead,
we just might be able to help make things
ever better.

Convenience takes a backseat to bus schedule
STACY DAIL
OPINION WRITER
So, here 1 im, standing outside of Joyner library,
at 8:15 p.m in the rain. Doesn't sound like such a
bad situation, but throw in 15 pounds of books and
the fact that I just missed the bus that only comes
every 30 minutes, the bus that will separate me from
this rainy wet misery, and my dry little car, and the
situation sounds a bit worse.
If you haven't guessed already, I am one of the
many commuter students at ECU that get the privi-
lege of taking the ECU bus every single day during
the week. Don't get me wrong, the school and their
bus system is great during the day, but at night is
where my problem begins.
The Minges Park and Ride bus runs from 6:50
a.m. to 6:50 p.m picking up and dropping off
students every five to 10 minutes. Being a transfer
student from NC. State, I applaud ECU on their bus
system. During the day, it's easy to catch a bus just
about any where you want to go, and for those of us
going to Minges in a hurry to get to work or run an
errand, the bus is quick, easy and efficient.
Then, seven o'clock rolls around and the Minges.
Park and Ride buses go home. Unfortunately, there
are still many commuter students who would love to
get to their car with such quickness and efficiency
that 1 was just complimenting ECU's bus system on.
Instead these students have to wait for The Pirate
Ride bus, which comes every 80 minutes, if you're
lucky. At Joyner library, the bus is scheduled to come
15 after the hour and 15 until the hour.
When I was so gracefully running to catch the
bus that left me, it was about 8:10, and when I finally
got on the bus, my books and I quite wet, it was 8:53.
Sure this is only a 13 minute difference from the 30
minute schedule, but in.my opinion, the bus coming
every 30 minutes is ridiculous.
There are a lot of students who take night classes,
and when we get out of class, regardless of the
time, we are ready to get to our cars and get home
or wherever else we have to be. Waiting 20, 30 or
even 40 minutes isn't logical, given all the buses that
ECU has, and factoring in the amount that students
pay for tuition.
Yes, I understand that the reason ECU does this
is because not as many students need the bus at night,
but it would be nice for them to consider those of
us who do, and don't enjoy waiting half an hour or
longer for the bus to arrive.
A lot of those living off campus have bills to
pay, and when getting out of class at night some
are going to work, or need to get home to do school
work before starting a new busy day of more school
and more work. Time is a very important thing in
a college student's life, and waiting for the bus for a
long time is just a waste of it.
I admit that the bus schedule probably isn't the
biggest problem that ECU has right now, but I think it
is important and should be improved. Scheduling the
buses to come every 10 minutes would be OK, that way
a five or so minute delay wouldn't be that big of a deal.
I know that I, and probably all the other com-
muter students, would love to know that no matter
what time they get out of class, going home and get-
ting on with their life is no longer 30 minutes away,
but an easy and quick five to 10 minutes.
PIRATE RANTS
How do you fumble on the one yard line?!
There is someone I know who is scrumptious.
To all, and I mean all, you girls wearing low-
cut shirts that expose heaving cleavage and
shorts and miniskirts that barely cover your
posterior: Why, oh why, do you torture me so?
Any sorority that says they don't haze, they
are lying! Trust me, I live with two different
sorority girls. Why would you want to part
of an organization that makes you drink
or do humiliating things for a good laugh?
Is it bad that I like Hannah Montana
on the Disney Channel and I am 23?
I hate the new nursing school building.
There are no places to sit outside, one
place to eat and no visitor parking. It was
not made for students; it was made to "have
the best technology Too bad it doesn't
work and the lights go off during class !
I don't think sports deserves its own
section in the newspaper any more than
say, a knitting section or a video game
section, let alone it's own half of TEC.
To the guy wondering where all the single
good girls are: We're out here wondering
where the single good guys are! Seriously,
if all you're meeting is trashy girls, maybe
you're looking in the wrong places!
Why are ECU employees allowed to
smoke cigarettes in state owned vehicles?
I barely noticed that they painted two
white lines across 14th Street between
Berkley Road and College Hill Drive. Is that
supposed to be a pedestrian crosswalk?
Can they put some signs up or paint the
road so it's more evident? And sorry to
the student that I about hit the other day.
All this policy crap is really hindering
me from getting my game on.
To the person who walked by the
bus stop Friday morning covered in
permanent marker: I just want to thank
you for making me realize my day
could be a lot worse than a hangover.
I hate geography especially at 8 a.m even
more when my professor can't speak English.
I'm from Bermuda! A Hurricane is about to
hit does anyone care? It's not on the news
or do Americans only care about Americans?
I love America but that's pathetic!
Be good to everyone. To each the other true.
A lot of things don't bother me, but
one thing that does bother me? When
I'm walking to class and someone is
walking and text messaging on their cell
phone at the same time. For some reason
people feel the need to walk slowly like
a granny with a walker, rather than just
sitting down somewhere to take care of
that important text message. It's not that
hard to just get out of people's way to
play with your cell phone, I mean really.
Nineteen days, and it's still cold in Fleming.
I miss the opinion articles from last
year. Especially the conservative
corner, even if that's because it
made me so angry it was just funny.
I think I'm in love with you, but I don't want to
get my heart broken. And I don't want to lose
everything that we have. Have I mentioned
you're basically my best friend? No, really.
How the hell am I 21 years old and
still slightly afraid of the dark and
unable to sleep in a house by myself?
To the girl that I see everyday in the
gym: I wish that I could get the courage
to give you a hug. Sweetheart, you are
too thin. I don't know what makes you
think that you still need to keep running,
but I promise you don't need it, and I
hope that someone else notices soon.
I bet you eight out of 10 people who
eat fast food regularly are considered
obese. I seriously see so many overweight
people going through the McDonalds
drive-thru on my way to work every day.
Why do so many girls ignore everyone else
like they don't exist? When you walk by and
give them a cheerful wave or smile to be
friendly, they keep walking as if they didn't
see it. Why don't people at least nod, say
hi, or at least loosen up? Half of everyone
I meet is all tensed up. It's just college.
Slim and Shady Mornings Rock my socks
every Tuesday and Thursday on WZMB!
I'm bringing sexy back
To the two people who sit next to me in
English: If you feel the need to pass notes
back and forth go back to high school!
It is disrespectful to your classmates
who you distract, and the teacher. If
you already know everything, maybe you
shouldn't have signed up for the class.
I hate to bring up the issue of smoking,
but this is getting ridiculous. Every time I
walk anywhere on campus, it seems like
everyone is smoking It is effecting those of
us who like to keep our lungs and not want
to breathe out of a hole in our necks. I think
ECU should be a non-smoking campus and
follow in the footsteps of PCMH. If you're
going to smoke, may I suggest you not
walk in front of other people while doing it
and then breathing it out onto us. There is
nothing more disgusting than seeing smoke
come out of your mouths and into my hair.
To the guys from North Campus Crossing
that "threatened" my friends and myself'
while we were waiting for the Pirate
Express the other night downtown.
That was a classless act. How did you
pinheads get into ECU? If you can't
control yourself then don't go downtown.
To the guys who think skateboarding all
around Pirate's Cove at two in the morning
is apparently the best thing ever, there are
not enough words in the English language to
describe how much I loathe you. Just when
I'm about to fall asleep, every night, there's
the sound of your skateboards. I'm outraged.
I hate classes where my classmates act like
they are the professor and give people the
third degree when the miss a class. Get a life!
We always have next weekend
Pirates. I know you can do it!
I hate that I'm doing this to
you. I hate that you hate me for it.

Throughout the month of Sep-

Viewers can visit the Gray
Gallery located on the second
floor of the Jenkins building
between Monday and Friday from
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Also during this month are
other special events in conjunction
with this exhibition. On Sept. 14,
Brent Funderburk (MFA 1978),
professor of art and senior fine art
coordinator in the department of
art in the College of Architecture,
Art and Design at Mississippi
State University, will present a
lecture in Speight Auditorium at

be presented.
On the following day,
Sept. 1.5, the School of Art and
Design will host a series of work-

Fast access
to the arts
The last-minute
way to get tickets to
performances
LIZ FULTON
SENIOR WRITER
Every so often, it is necessary
to tear yourself away from the
ordinary and spend an evening
being enlightened by the beauty
of the performing arts.
For the structured and
forward thinking, ECU's College
of Fine Arts and Communica-
tion has created a way to buy
advance tickets for the S.
Rudolph Performing Arts Series
held annually on central campus
at Wright Auditorium.
Every year, SRAPAS brings
acclaimed musicians, singers,
plays and ballets to our campus
at amazing costs to students
and visitors alike. Of the nine
performances scheduled for the
2006 - 2007 season, there is an
option of purchasing tickets for
four events for only $0. Besides
the fact that the series takes about
half a million dollars to operate,
the accolades and awards these
performers have won is luck
in itself to only see them for
$10 a show.
With the purchase of advance
tickets, it is also possible to choose
your seats and know that you
will be attending some of the
most highly cultured events
in Greenville.
If you are not so lucky to
plan out your calendar weeks in
advance but still want to attend
a SRAPAS event, it is now easier
than ever with the program's rush
ticket option.
For only $5, you can attend
a performance without reserv-
ing a ticket. The only setback is
that your seat will be determined
by whatever is available and
you must show up half an hour
prior to the show's opening. All
shows are held at Wright Audi-
torium and you must bring your
student ID.
"The performers in the season
are so talented, and it's a really
great opportunity to see some of
them on the ground floor said
Michael Crane of the College of
Fine Arts.
"They're not only 'edu-tain-
ing' but also there is something
for everyone
Appearing in October is
Tierney Sutton, a jazz vocalist
who has done commercials for
BMW and Coca-Cola. Accompa-
nied by her band, her music will
mesmerize you and show you
why she is Jazz Week's vocalist
of the year.

This week in health
The vaccination, developed by Merck is available at the ECU Student
Health Center in a three dose course that is available to any student.
Human Papillomavirus
and the new vaccine
SARAH CAMPBELL
ASSISTANT FEATURES EDITOR
Unless you've been hiding
under a rock for the past six
months, it is unlikely that you've
managed to escape the numerous
Commercial! that air frequently
on major television networks.
Merck's ad campaign, "Tell Some-
one encourages people to spread
the word about the Human Pap-
illomavirus, which can lead to
cervical cancer. Therefore, I've
decided to spread the word to you.
Let's start oft with the basics.
For those of your who don't
already know, you are probably
wondering what flPV is. Genital
warts and cervical cancer are the
two most common problems that
are associated with HPV, which
is most often transmitted from
person to person through sex.
I II'V is also the most common
sexually transmitted disease in
the US, with about 50 percent of
sexually active people contracting
Hl'V at some time throughout
their life Every year around 0.8
million Americans contract Hl'V.
The virus is most prominent in
women and men in their late teens
and early -20s.
There are over !()() varieties
of Hl'V; however, not all form
of Hl'V lead to cervical cancer or
genital warts Some people can live
for months or even years after they
are infected with the disease before
they experience any symptoms.
After reading about this dis-
ease you may begin to worry
about your own health. Hl'V is not
included in a regular STI) test;
therefore, women must have a pap
Mm ar to determine whether they
have abnormal cells in the cervix.
Since Hl'V is a virus, it will
remain with you throughout your
lifetime. However the problems
that stem from it can be treated.
Most visible genital warts should
disappear with time, but if you
suffer from a more severe case,
you may need to visit a doctor for
surgery or medication.
Cervical cancer can also be
treated with traditional cancer
treatments, which include, but are
not limited to, surgery, radiation
therapy and chemotherapy.
Once you are certain that
you are HI'V-free, you can seek
a preventative measure for the
virus in the form of the vaccine,
Gardasil.
The vaccine protects against
the most invasive types of Hl'V
which include strains 6, 11, 16
and IK. However, it does not cure
those already diagnosed with the
virus.
Student Health Services offers
Gardasil to students for $130
per dose, totaling (590 for the
full series. For more information
about the vaccine, please visit the
Center of Disease Control and
Prevention's Web site at cdc.gov
Another preventative measure
against HPV is using barrier pro-
tection during Sexual intercourse,
whether it is through the use of
a condom or a diaphragm Also,
limiting the number of sexual
partners greatly lowers your risk
of contracting the virus
The bottom line as with any
STU is to make sure that you
understand the disease and that
you get checked regularly if you
are sexually active The key to
treating this disease is catching it
in early stages before it has time to
wreck havoc on your body.

about HPV, vilit hpvtest.com

the virus as well as answers

The 1960s were overrated.
If there was a revolution, where
did it go? Everyone involved in

ingly copped out once Hell's
Angels paraded Altamont and
Charlie Manson painted the
walls with "Helter Skelter
What's left besides a few
embarrassing names and
drunken uncles who like to
ramble about the "good old
days after a seventh egg nog?
All the real entities from
that era have either OD'd or
are still living in their parents'
basements. It would be nice to
see Brian Wilson get some much
needed dough from the 40th
anniversary release of Ptt Sounds,
but we all know that will never
happen. Syd Barrett passed this
year, along with all hope of a
reptilian Pink Floyd reunion.
In essence, the 1960s were a
period when rock n' roll hit its
pinnacle by embracing its African
American heritage. There were a
few savants who pushed beyond
the constraints of the blues, but
they are the ones said farewell
to their instruments long ago.
It's sweet to see a revived
interest in bands like Captain
Beefhart and the 13th Floor
Elevators, but hearing "You're
Gonna Miss Me" blaring from the
backdrop of a Dell commercial is
like watching your idol's death
rattle from a too real perspective.
Dylan and Hendrix are
untouchable from any stance.
So were The Yardbirds, but as
our generation's Dylan, Anton

The 1960s had such impact
because they were the years that
people began to see music as
a soundtrack of the times. But
this admiration escalated into
egotistic stars that cared less
about their message than the
recognition, which locked the
gates of credibility with a key
ofexcess.
Despite my cynical ram-
bling, the era is one worthy of
being schooled on. And who
better to do that than Barry
Drake, a man who walked the
Haight-Ashbury district at
the peak of all the hysteria?
Drake has been voted five
times as the national lecturer of
the year by the National Associa-
tion of Campus Activities, and
three more times by Campus
Activity magazine.
He has often been called a
walking encyclopedia of music
and focuses on the roots and
misunderstandings of music's
most cherished artists
His lecture is being held on
Sept. 14 at the Mendenhall Stu-

at 8 p.m.

Pirates fall to Blazers
in dramatic fashion

Late fumble secures
win for UAB
BY RON CLEMENTS
SENIOR WRITER
ECU wide receiver Phillip
Henry turned in the best game of
his career Saturday night at UAB,
but it won't be remembered for the
junior's 138-yard receiving perfor-
mance, it will be remembered for
the five yards Henry didn't get.
On a 4th-and-15 from midfield
with just over a minute remaining
and the Pirates trailing by five,
James Pinkney uncorked a perfect
pass to Henry. Pinkney lobbed the
ball over the hands of a leaping
defender and hit Henry in stride.
It appeared Henry was going in
for the winning score when the
unthinkable happened. UAB safety
Chris Felder caught up to Henry
and punched the ball out from
behind inside the five-yard line.
The Blazers recovered the fumble
in the end zone for a touchback and
held on for a 17-12 win.
The play epitomized what has
been a rollercoaster start for the
Pirates, who fell to 0-2 on the
young season.
"It hurts said ECU Head
Coach Skip Holtz. "We had plenty of
opportunities, but what really hurts
about it is that as poorly as we played
on offense, we still had our oppor-
tunities. And then there was that
flash of seconds there at the end
While Henry is the easy scape-
goat, in no way is Holtz, or the
team, putting the blame on him.
"Phillip Henry didn't lose this
football game Holtz said. "I made
the comment to the team at our
team meeting; he had an oppor-

tunity to win it. He made a great
catch. He could have dropped the
ball, too. He made a great catch in
the open field. A guy jumped up
as a distraction, he caught the ball
in his hands up over his head and
kinda spun around and took off for
the end zone. He had an opportu-
nity to win it, but he didn't lose it.
There were a whole lot of other
opportunities that we had
Those "other opportunities"
the Pirates had were similar to the
same chances they got at Navy a
week earlier. ECU recovered a pair
of UAB fumbles, but was unable to
convert either into points.
The Pirates had the ball inside the
UAB 10-yard line three times, but only
got one touchdown while settling a
pair of 22-yard Robert Lee field goals
on the other two possessions.
Henry's offensive punch and the
emergence of redshirt sophomore
tight end Davon Drew, who caught
his first career touchdown pass, made
up for a lackluster day for standout
receiver Aundrae Allison.
The talented wideout, who was
placed on the watch list for the Bilet-
nikoff Award last week, was shut out
for the first time in his ECU career.
The Pirates tried three fade routes
to him near the end zone and threw
to him six times during the game,
but Allison was unable to come up
with a catch.
OPINION
Henrys
fumble adds
to laundry
list of
late game
blunders
Reaction must be
positive for fragile team
ERIC GILMORE
SPORTS EDITOR
Two more yards and Phillip
Henry is a hero. Instead, the ECU
wide receiver becomes another
name in ECU football folklore.
Whether it was a severe case
of bad luck or the Alabama curse,
ECU couldn't catch a late game
break.
As seems to be standard from
the purple and gold, it was a case
of almost, but not quite enough.
Henry's late fumble at UAB imme-
diately reminded Pirate fans of
that dreadful Oct. 6 day in 2001
when then - KCU running back
Art Brown was primed to score
on a UNC kickoff in Chapel
Hill. Instead regaining the lead,
Madison Hedgecock jarred the
ball loose as Brown was entering
the endzone. Touchdown erased,
harmless touchback recorded.
ECU didn't score again and lost
the game 24-21.
It's the same script. Through-
out ECU's football history, huge
upsets are negated by question-
able calls and late fumbles. The
Pirates come close, but one play at
the exact wrong time constantly
prevents them from prevailing.
How about the 1983 team
that lost by a combined 13 points
. to Florida State, Florida and
: Miami? Then, ECU Head Coach
Ed Emory had a squad poised to
upset national power Florida State
when quarterback Kevin Ingram
fumbled in the late minutes at the
FSU 30, well within Jeff Heath's,
field goal range. During that
same year, Norwood Vann and
Stefon Adams collided in the end
zone to negate a sure touchdown
catch that would have prevented
Miami from winning the national
championship.
ECU's most infuriating loss
was to Southern Miss in 1986.
After ECU scored, the Golden
Eagles had a few seconds left for
a Hail Mary. During the ensuing
play, a Southern Miss receiver
illegally lateralled the ball for-
ward to another Southern Miss
player, who went in the end zone
to score. ECU Head Coach Art
Baker had a choice of declining the
penalty, which would have given
Southern Miss a touchdown or
enforce it at the spot of the foul.
Baker chose the ladder, which
set up a go-ahead Golden Eagles
field goal to defeat ECU 23-21.
The NCAA later changed the
rule that an offensive team cannot
benefit from a penalty at the end
of the game.
In ECU's only loss during
the 1991 season, the Pirates were
flagged for a questionable exces-
sive celebration penalty at Illinois
in front of a national television
audience. Granted, the Jeff Blake
led squad made several memo-
rable plays late in games, hut the
Illinois loss prevented ECU from
having it's only ever undefeated
record.
How about Steve Logan's call
at West Virginia on Sept. 14,
1996? Instead of forcing overtime,

ECU Cross Country runs strong at Seahawk Invitational
Nicole Briggs finishes
third, top ECU runner
JARED JACKSON
STAFF WRITER
Both the men's and women's
cross country teams competed in
the Seahawk Inv itational. The event
was held in Wilmington, North
Carolina the city of the host UNC
Wilmington.
The men's race was won by
host UNC Wilmington and the
women's race was won by Camp-
bell. Individually, Verrelle Taylor
(Campbell) won the men's with a
time of 15:31:37.
Verrelle Taylor (Campbell) as
stated above finished first with a
time of 15:31.37. He was followed
by Aaron Kolk (UNC-W) finished
with a time of 15:41.88. Coming in
third was Jeremy Helf (Campbell)
with a time of 15:56.92. Ian Bracy
(UNC-W) placed fourth with a time
of 16:04.25. Rounding out the top
five was Jacob Reed (unattached)
with a time of 16:07.19.
The outcome of the men's run
isn't so pleasant for ECU with all
due respect. Stephen Tausend fin-
ished 10th with a time of 16:36.08.
Chris Belfiore followed Tausend and
finish 11th with a time of 16:40.98.
Rich Saunders finished 12th with a
time of 16:41.71. Drew Jenkins fin-
ished 16th with a time of 17:02.31.
Kyle Yunaska placed 28th with the
time of 18:17.29. He was followed
by Bryan Snow with the time of
18:21.77. Michael Barnett was 30th
with a time of 18:26.74. Michael
Wall rounded out the pirates team
at the 33rd spot. His time was
19:36.46.
The silver lining after this
match is that the men's cross coun-
try team is dealing with a lot of
injuries. After finishing 3rd in this
Invitational, there is only room to
move up.
On the women's side, Charlotte
Farquharson (Campbell) outpaced
everyone to win with a time of
19:02:lO.Alyse Nelson (Campbell)
placed second with a time of 19:13.69.
Coming in third, was Nicole Briggs
representing ECU with a time of
19:29.46. Amelia Arthur (Camp-
bell) was 4th with a time of 19:35.97.
Rounding out the top five was
Hayley Flynn also representing
ECU with a time of 19:36.50.
The times for the ECU women
were pretty impressive. As stated
earlier Nicole Briggs placed third
overall individually with a time of
19:29.46. Hayley Flynn followed
her at fifth overall with a time of
19:36:50. Samantha Lichtner was
7th with a time of 19:52:12. Jennifer
White placed ninth with a time of
19:58:75.
Tayleigh Davis finished 11th
with a time of 20:06.74. Danielle
Petty finished 15th with a time of
20:21.50. Aisha Bilal-Mack placed
17th with a time of 20:34.66. Fol-
lowing her was Hollie Brooks with
a time of 20:39.26. Also following
her was Erinn Latta with a time of
20:56.88. Jessica Raphael rounded
out the women pirates' team. She
placed 24th was a time of 21:38:01.
After all was said and done, the
women had four runners in the top
10. Three of those that placed in the
top 10 were freshmen. The women
hope to improve upon this excellent
showing and win an match in the
upcoming future.
Up next on the schedule for both
the men and women is the Coastal
Carolina Invite on Sept. 16th. The
men will compete in the 8 K while
the women will compete in the 5
K. Sept. 3)th will feature the first

Holtz said Allison's unchar-
acteristic drops and inability to
shake coverage frustrated the
senior, but would have been fine
had the Pirates won the game.
"Aundrae will trade a no-catch
game for a win right now Holtz
said at his weekly press luncheon
Monday. "His frustration was that
he wasn't making the plays. He
came in after one of those fades
and said, I gotta make that catch '
His frustration was that he wasn't
performing at the level he wanted
to perform to and not about his
record about how many games he
can catch a pass
While Allison was double-and-
triple-teamed by the Blazers often,
it opened up the field for ECU's
other wideouts to get open. Henry
and Drew had six catches apiece
and quarterback James Pinkney
connected with nine different
receivers for the second straight
week. Pinkney, who sprained his
right ankle during the game, com-
pleted 20 of his 38 pass attempts for
280 yards with the touchdown to
Drew and a second-quarter inter-
ception that led to a UAB field goal
right before halftime. The senior
quarterback wore a protective boot
Monday, but is not expected to miss
any practice time.
The Pirates out-gained the
Blazers, 376-323, and turnovers
were even at three. Holtz said the
defense turned in its "second-best
performance" in the two years he's
been at the helm of the football
ship and is expecting this team
to turn the corner.
"There are a million one plays'
that you could pick that changed the
course of that football game Holtz
said. "Phillip Henry's just happened
to be at the end of the game. We've
played over 300 plays here in two
games and the difference in winning
and losing these two games is two
plays. You change two plays and
what kind of attitude, confidence
and swagger does this team have?
"We've got 10 games left
on the schedule It's way too
early to start hanging our heads
and moping around. We've been
underdogs in both games and had
to go play on the road with a rela-
tively young team, and I've been
really proud of the way they've
competed, but now is not the time
to pat yourself on the back and say,
You know what, we're better than
we were a year ago That doesn't
matter. We just gotta get better

OPINION
continued from A7
Logan decided to go for a two-
point conversion. ECU failed and
lost the game 10-9.
The Pirates came close to
winning at Alabama in 1998
when David Garrard was a fresh-
man. Instead of taking a SEC
out on the road, ECU's extra
point was blocked and taken back
for a Crimson Tide two-point
conversion. The play proved to
be the difference as ECU lost
23-22.
Even though many Pirate
backers want to erase the John
Thompson era from the record
books, ECU kept up with its
stereotype by repeatedly letting
chances slip through their fingers.
Who could forget Vonta Leach's
courageous 111-yard performance
against South Florida in Dowdy-
Ficklen in 2003? Having won one
game all season, ECU had the
chance to tie the game in double
overtime only to have Cameron
Broadwell's extra point attempt
blocked.
Yet another heartbreaking
defeat.
Debatably, the most gut
wrenching loss in Pirate his-
tory also happened in the state
of Alabama. Despite being up by
30 points in the second half, the
2001 team, with Steve Logan
at the helm, lost in double over-
time 64-61 to Byron Leftwich
and Marshall. The GMAC Bowl
loss left fans speechless and sent
a shockwave that ECU is still
trying to recover from.
Despite the Pirates' propen-
sity for fumbling away chances to
win, maybe Henry's play will turn
the mojo in the opposite direction.
Just maybe.
Aside from the lack of luck or
Alabama witchcraft, Skip Holtz
needs to instill enough confidence
to find a win versus Memphis on
Saturday. The team's recent lack
of winning attitude combined
with two recent heartbreaks puts
the Pirates in a super fragile state
ofaffairs. Just think what another
fumble would do.

ECU women's soccer notches one
win in N.C. State Tournament
Kirkley scores game
winner to beat Georgia
State 3-2
(ECU SID) After dropping
the first of two games in the N.C.
State Tournament to American
University, the ECU women's
soccer team battled back
on Sunday, defeating
Georgia State 3-2 on a game
winner by freshman Sarah Kirk-
ley in the 81st minute of play.
The goal by Kirkley was her
second on the season, giving her
a team-leading seven points.
Georgia State (2-3-1) jumped
out to the early lead when
Nathalie Carter kicked the ball
into the high right corner of the
net past Amber Campbell at the
1:14 mark. Campbell would go
on to allow another goal in the
47th minute, also by Carter. The
two goals let up by Campbell
ECU
03
GA. ST.
02
would be the most she has allowed
all season in a single game.
Tara Shaw recorded her second
and third goals of the season in the
first period just five minutes apart
from each other. Amy Szilard was
credited with her first colle-
giate assist when she passed it
off to Shaw through the box.
Sarah Kirkley would get her
first of three big points in the
game when she assisted Shaw off
a corner kick, who would head the
ball into the back of the net.
"Sarah Kirkley played a
phenomenal game today coming
through with the game winner
said head coach Rob Donnen-
wirth. "With the work ethic she
puts in she deserves it. Amy
Szilard also played a great game
for us up top. It was a hard
fought win
Jen Kurowicki would replace
Campbell and play 41:27.
Kurowicki would go on to finish
out the game without allowing a
goal. This was the second time in
six games that Kurowicki has seen
action, totaling 54:06, without
letting up a goal.
The Lady Pirates have now
played their first five out of six
games on the road and are off
to their best start of the season
since 2000, when they were
also 4-2 to begin the year. ECU
(4-2) will now come home to Bun-
ting Field for parent's weekend
and play host to UNC Wilming-
ton on Friday and Pennsylvania
on Sunday.
