Many students may give themselves
criminal records because they lack knowl-
edge about the recent changes in alcohol laws.
Peter Romary, attorney tor student legal
services, said that the changes will be effective as
of Dec. 1, and would like to make students aware
of these changes.
A night of partying and having fun will
become a little more technical to initiate if it
involves buying a keg.
According to Romary, in order to purchase a
keg, you must now obtain a permit for the indi-
vidual at the ABC store who is selling it to you.
The permit will include information such as your
name and address. This information will help the
authorities to hold you responsible if someone under-
age consumes alcohol or if someone drinks and drives.
Other major changes include possibly get-
ting a class three misdemeanor for consump-
tion of alcohol if you are an underage drinker.
"Previously, purchase and possession were
the main offenses and consumption alone was
not a crime; now it will be said Romary.
The DWI and consumption laws have been
toughened to make it easier for the state to
convict individuals for alcohol-related crimes.
It's also an effort for the state to dissolve the
prayer for judgment continued law, which is protected
for record
Students who aren't concerned with the changes in
alcohol laws and choose to drink and receive a drink-
ing ticket could be setting themselves up for longtime
disappointment if they choose to just pay it off.
Simply paying off the ticket will give you
a criminal record and you can also be put on
probation, and have difficulty getting accepted
in the graduate school or getting hired for a
job later on for continued alcohol offenses.
"Depending upon your age, possession of alco-
hol can be a more serious offense than posses-
sion of marijuana or assault in North Carolina
Romary said.
Ciera Burns, criminal justice major, said
that she was aware of the possibility of getting a
criminal record and went to a lawyer after getting
a drinking ticket.
These laws came about through the ere
at ion of Governor Easlcy's DWI Task
Force. The DWI and other alcohol
laws were studied and recommen-
dations were given to the General
The changes that were
brought about by the recom-
mendations were put into
House Bill 1048 and were
passed the last week of the
legislative session this year,
according to Romary.
Romary believes
that the revision to
the alcohol laws will
result in safer roads
and less violence

Newman Center strives to teach
respect, responsibility to students
Downey becomes
'public face' of
The Newman Catho-
lic Student Center is under
new management, in a way.
Over the past year, Rev.
Joseph Yaeger, or "Father Joe" as
everyone calls him, was respon-
sible for both the spiritual and
managerial duties at the center.
On July .s, however, Ryan
Downey, 2, who lives with his
wife in a house next door to
the center, took over the admin-
istrative side of Newman.
"I am the public face of the
Newman Center he said. "I handle
outreach to the campus, including
students, faculty and staff I'm
in charge of the overall direction
of the Newman Center, of what
we're doing and what we will do
Downey graduated from ECU
in '2002 with a BS in Communica-
tion, and became involved in the
Newman Center as a freshman. He
credits the center with "unlocking"
his faith. So when the opportunity
arose for him to work for the
center, he jumped at the chance.
"It occurs to me how impor-
tant this sort of thing is said
Downey. "It was just so important
for my identity coming through
here and for who I've become
Downey has an earnest desire
to help the center, evidenced by
the amount of work he puts into
it. He wants to build up campus
awareness of the Catholic center,
he said, and get it to the point
where they are running six or
seven Masses per week. He also
wants to "bring back the idea
of service to others he said.
He furthermore wants
to extend the Newman Cen-
ter's welcome to older stu-
dents, both non-traditional
and graduate students.
"I think one of the weaknesses
of campus ministries every-
where is that it becomes a youth
group for older kids, instead of
a mature group Downey said.
"A majority of the kids
involved are young. The only
older kids are the ones in charge
He wants to retain the
older students by offering them
opportunities they cannot get
elsewhere, such as a Bible study
for graduate students, help
with creating a resume and
job interviewing and how to
establish credit responsibly.
"We want to set people up
so they can go out in the world
and feel that not only did they
get their degree, not only did
they have a spiritually uplift-
ing experience because of their
involvement at the Newman
Center, but give them an experi-
ence that allows them to become
a stronger and more mature
person he said. "It helps with
the total education experience
His most ingenious idea,
though, is the creation of an
alumni association for the
Newman Center. He thought
of the idea as an undergradu-
ate while he was doing an

Student Pirate Club
focuses on student
support of athletics
Club looks to educate
students on importance
of giving back
With football season in full
swing, it's time tor Pirate fans who
have not already taken advantage
of the Student Pirate Club to hop
on board.
The SPC, which is a branch
of the ECU Pirate Club, enables
undergraduates as well as gradu-
ates who are enrolled as full-time
students to become a part of the
largest student organization at
ECU. The SPC focuses primarily
on closely involving its mem-
bers with the university athletic
programs and increasing their
excitement and support for their
fellow pirates. Moreover, the SPC
aims to educate its members on
the significance of giving back
to the program once they have
Students pay a mere $30 a year
and receive a great deal of incen-
tives in return. If students join in
August or early September, they
receive access to all home football
game tickets before the season
starts, which place them at the
M)-yard line in Dowdy-Ficklen
Stadium. Members are also able to
obtain their tickets for men's home
basketball games one day before
non-members, which enables them
seating right along half court. In
addition, members maintain prior-
ity in purchasing away and bowl
game tickets.
Other advantages include
ECU athletic facility tours, access
to special SPC lookouts, tailgates
and other social events, a chance
to meet ECU coaches and players,
a IS month subscription to the
Pirates Chest monthly magazine,
which covers ECU athletics, and
an accumulation of priority points
that will benefit those who choose
to remain involved with the pro-
gram once they have graduated.
Seth ilorton, two-Tear SPC
president, takes pride in his
involvement with the club and
adds that one of the main focuses
is to ensure that students have
a great overall experience while
at ECU.
"School spirit is a huge part
of the college experience, and
it's something that I really enjoy
being a part of said Ilorton.

that the excitement students
experience as SPC members may
persuade them to give back to the

has already surpassed last year's

Greenville's noise ordinance made the front page of the East Carolinian.
Students were reminded that the noise limit for residential occupancy
was 55 decibels from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
The limit remains the same to this day.
In the By the Numbers section
in the Sept. 7 edition, the first
figure stated that ECU's all-time
football record was 0-6. The
author neglected the fact that
ECU lost two bowl games, 28-
14 to TCU in the 1999 GMAC
Bowl and 64-61 to Marshall in
double overtime in the 2001
GMAC Bowl. ECU actually
did beat Howard College 35-
10 on Nov. 20, 1965. The
Birmingham based school
changed its name to Samford
University when it obtained
university status in 1965. With
the UAB loss, ECU'S all-time
record inside Alabama is 1-9.

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.

GOP House candidates to end long
primary with special election
(AP) While most General
Assembly candidates are starting
to look toward the November elec-
tions, Stephen LaRoque and Willie
Ray Starling are still wrapped up
in a seven month primary battle
that should end with a special elec-
tion Tuesday.
The State Board of Elections
last month ordered a new elec-
tion in their 10th House District
after some voting irregularities
and some possible problems with
at least one new voting machine
during the May 2 primary election.
Starling, a retired federal
government worker from Wayne
County who lost to LaRoque
in 2004, was also campaigning
Monday, knocking on doors, even
at homes where LaRoque signs
are erected.
"I'm an eternal optimist Star-
ling said. "My message is getting
across to people
The winner won't have much
time to rest. Democrat Van Brax-
to, a Kinston city councilman, is
continued from A2
internship. Many of his fellow stu-
dents had gotten their internship
through their involvement with
the Greek organizations, which
have high alumni involvement.
For the students, having con-
tact with the alumni would allow
them to make networking con-
nections that could land them
internships or jobs in the future.
The alumni would benefit in ways
other than the obvious tax deduc-
tions. It is also a way for them to
network, to keep in contact with
people who may be able to help
them down the road, Downey said.
For the center itself, "It
extends the idea of commu-
nity past ECU, it becomes an
extended family he said.
"So many people leave campus
and never look back. It seems like
a waste to lose contact with all
these talented, wonderful people
It also allows the center to keep
in contact with former campus
ministers and those in leader-
ship positions at Newman. This,
according to Downey, would
allow the center to benefit from
the experience of others, with
regards to what has worked in
the past, as well as what has not.
The reason Downey wants
to put so much into the Newman
Center is that he feels so strongly
that it is an important part of campus
life for so many young Catholics.
"Something that I like about
the Newman Center is the idea
that it is really both a place
that can be a home away from
home for people and it's actu-
ally a structure, it's something
here, something tangible that you
can point to and say, 'That's the
Newman Center Downey said.
"We hope that you will find
the Newman Center to be a place
where you can get to know other
students, practice your faith and
just relax between classes accord-
ing to the site. To that end, Newman
hosts free weekly Wednesday night
dinners directly following Mass.
Though no longer the campus
minister, Father Joe is an inte-
gral part of the Newman Center.
"Now we have a spiritual
backbone in Father Joe and the
social outreach person in me

in a partisan race.

Where you live can affect how long
you live
(AP) Asian-American
women living in Bergen County,
N.J lead the nation in longev-
ity, typically reaching their 91st
birthdays. Worst off are American
Indian men in swaths of South
Dakota, who die around age 58,
three decades sooner.
Where you live, combined with
race and income, plays a huge role
in the nation's health disparities, dif-
ferences so stark that a report issued
Monday contends it's as if there are
eight separate Americas instead of one.
North Carolina ranked 40th
among the states with an aver-
age life expectancy of 75.8 years.
Hawaii led the nation with an aver-
age life expectancy of 80.
Health disparities are widely
considered an issue of minorities
and the poor being unable to find
or afford good medical care. Mur-
ray's county-by-county compari-
son of life expectancy shows the
problem is far more complex, and
that geography plays a crucial role.
Consider: The longest-living
whites weren't the relatively
wealthy, which Murray calls
"Middle America They're edged
out by low-income residents of
the rural Northern Plains states,
where the men tend to reach age
76 and the women 82.
Top Wattle Eater Breaks His Own
(AP) A California man
ate 23 waffles in 10 minutes to
break his own world record at
the 2006 Waffle House World
Waffle-Eating Championships in
Joey Chestnut's gluttonous feat
broke his record of 18.5 waffles
set at last year's competition, the
Waffle House restaurant chain
said in a release.
The 22-year-old San Jose, Cal-
ifornia, college student is ranked
second in the world by the Inter-
national Federation of Competitive
Eating, behind Takeru "the Tsu-
nami" Kobayashi of Nagano, Japan,
the Los Angeles Times reported.
The Waffle House said Chest-
nut faced a strong challenge from
Sonya Thomas, a 100 pound Vir-
ginia woman who holds 27 world
titles. She ate 21 waffles, while
Chip Simpson, a rising rookie on
the eating circuit, consumed 18.
Chestnut collected $5,000
for his win and the remaining
$2,500 in prizes was split among
Thomas and Simpson, the Waffle
House said.
Man Races Ankle Monitor for Burger
(AP) A St. Paul, Minn man
trying to outrun the alarm count-
down on his ankle monitoring
device kicked in a drive-through
window when he wasn't served
fast enough.
Randy Farrell Bailey, serving
an in-home sentence for a drunk
driving conviction, craved Burger
King and thought he could drive
the three blocks, get his food and
return home; all before the four-
minute delay on his alarm went off,
police said.
At the drive through he
demanded a burger and fries, using
foul language and acting tense,
assistant manager Danielle Weaver
told the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
When she asked him to control
his language, Bailey pulled up to
the window, got out of his car and
kicked the window in, witnesses
told police. He then drove home;
all under four minutes.
He later told police he was
innocent because his ankle brace-
let confined him to 150 feet of
his home. Police later learned
about the four-minute delay, and
charged Bailey with felony crimi-
nal destruction of property.

Investment firms
eye older workers
for financial advisor
Very rarely does someone start
a new career after the age of 50.
However, at UBS reaching the age
of 50 is almost becoming necessary
for hire, particularly in the Win-
ston-Salem UBS office where most
of the 11 financial advisors hired by
Patrick Crowley are at least 60.
The reasoning for this is simple.
As Crowley says, "We want advisers
who have been through, or are deal-
ing with, the same life experiences
as our clients. Those shared experi-
ences, whether saving for retirement,
paying for college or preparing to
transfer wealth to the next genera-
tion, can build up a relationship, and
ultimately trust, with a client
Richard Stuart, 56, had been
a financial systems development
manager for R.J. Reynolds Tobacco
Co. for about 30 years when the
company said in September '2003
that it was cutting its workforce to
reduce expenses. Stuart has found
that "being older has definitely
been an advantage because I've
found that people preparing for
retirement want to trust their
money to an adviser who will pro-
tect their investments
Marc Fusaro, an assistant eco-
nomic professor at ECU, said,
"For example, Edward Jones has a
preference for retired educators and
retired salesmen. And yes, part of
the reason is because customers are
more comfortable taking financial
advice from an older, potentially
wiser, face
There is a lot of enthusiasm with
corporate world veterans suddenly
becoming their own bosses after
yearsoftakingorders. The entrepre-
neurial aspect of financial advising
can be motivating to such veterans
such as Douglas Young, 50, a former
Reynolds executive who retired early
and came to UBS to start a new
career. Young said, "The chance to
work as my own boss within the
parameters of the local office was
too good to pass up
One of Crowley's younger
hires is Stephen .lumper, 43, who
has valuable advice for anyone
entering the job market. On stay-
ing employed and enjoying what
you do, he said, "This is the kind
of job where you can make your
own job security as you build
up your client base. Reinventing
yourself is the key to being gain-
fully employed in this job market.
But foremost, I want to enjoy what
I'm doing for a living
The idea of hiring persons who
are close to retirement age runs con-
trary to conventional industry thought
where the common way of doing
things is to hire the young in order to
cut costs as younger workers will more
than likely work for less money.
"Every day, our office is filled
with energy and enthusiasm
because of these advisers, They've
seized the opportunity to change
careers, and my goal is to continue
to find people just like them as our
office grows said Randy Wooden,
president of The Wooden Group
Inc a career-coaching company
based in Clemmons.
"I believe it is an exception
in a good way, and I wish other
companies would see the wisdom
in it; these people often have a
ready-made Rolodex of contacts
and potential clients from their
years in the corporate world. It's a
good second career field for many
of these professionals
As students prepare for careers

Stoplights just a little too long
Solution needed if I am
ever to arrive anywhere
on time
I'm a typical college stu-
dent. I tend to wake up 30
minutes before class, rush to
take a shower and find some
clothes that are actually clean
(that takes the most time). Four
months ago this worked fine
for me, but why have 1 already
been at least five minutes late
to most of my classes?
There is a very simple
answer to this, but there could
also be a less obvious one as
well. I don't live on campus
anymore. The five minute walk
from White Hall to Joyner East
was much easier than my cur-
rent drive down Charles Street
to the Minges parking lot. Fac-
toring in my ride on the bus,
the time spent traveling from
my residence to class would
equate to roughly 20 minutes.
The sad part is I only live about
three miles from campus.
It doesn't take a genius to
realize that something simply
isn't adding up here. This is
where the less obvious answer
to my previous question arises.
On my way to class I have
to stop at two lights, where
Charles Street intersects with
Ked Banks Koad and Greenville
Boulevard. And each and every
time I have arrived at them,
the inevitable red light stares
me back in the face for at least
five minutes.
Simply put, something
needs to be done about the
stoplights in Greenville. It is
a town that includes not only
many public schools, but a
university with over 20,000
students. If perhaps they were
better timed, many of us stu-
dents could plan at least with
a five minute leeway when
to leave the house every day.
Right now we can only attempt
to leave early and pray for the
impossible miracle of not sit-
ting at any one light for more
than two minutes.
Now don't get me wrong, I
highly enjoy living off-campus.
But I am also the type of person
that is never early; I'm sure
many of you know someone
out there like me. I know I will
have to rearrange my sleeping
schedule, that's what I buy 9
for, but when I'm sitting at
an intersection waiting for
the refreshing feeling of the
color green and see absolutely
nobody driving on the side
that gets to go, it makes me
think. And trust me, at the
intersection of Charles Street
and Greenville Boulevard, you
always get plenty of time to
Is there not a way they
can time the lights around
town better? Are they even
timed at all? I've seen green
arrows last for two minutes
and there were maybe three
cars that were waiting to turn
left. During those two minutes
I also temporarily lost hearing
in my left ear due to the 12
inch sub woofer being used to
its maximum potential by the
guy beside me. The sad part
was that he had a kid in the
passenger seat.
A friend of mine spoke to
me about how her bus that
travels from North Campus
Crossing Apartments was 30
minutes late picking her up for
class one night.
The bus was supposed to
arrive at the apartments at 5:45
p.m. Instead it cruised in at
6:15 p.m. I asked her to explain
why that specific bus was so
late. She replied by first telling
me that it wasn't just this spe-
cific instance in which it was
late, and immediately pointed
the finger at one specific red
light at the intersection of
10th Street and Greenville
If that's not proof enough
that something needs to be done
about this, my college Bible
study class on Sunday veered
totally off topic and began
arguing about the amount of
time they spent stopped at
specific intersections. One
person also mentioned that he
has never caught a green light

Clueless and panicked
Dear Clueless and Panicked,
Things may not be as dire as you may
think. It is early enough in the semester that
in most classes you can save your grades
still. You're being panicked leads me to
believe that you are willing to work hard to
get yourself out of this situation. Get to your
professor's office immediately! No e-mails,
no phone calls - what you need is face time.
Tell them that you have royally screwed up
and are committed to doing whatever it takes
to right your wrongs. While some professors
won t budge, others will applaud you realiz-
ing the bad situation you've put yourself. Ask
for extra credit, tutoring and then commit
to not skipping class and actually preparing
for it. It may take some serious groveling
and some steep commitments, but not fail-
ing and hurting your GPA from the start
will be well worth it. If you have no chance
with your professor, then talk to your advi-
sor about a drop andgetting back on track
toward graduation. They'll oe able to look
at your situation more specifically and help
you out further. Don't worry about what they
think either, because believe me they've seen
it all. And remember, while sometimes col-
lege seems like more fun without the classes,
you are here for a reason, so don't forget it
as you move forward! Best of luck!
Dear Jane,
One of my best friends cheated on his
firlfriend and slept with someone else. He
oesn't want to tell her, but I'm friends with
her too and I think she has the right to
know. Do I say something and risk losing
his friendship, or do I let the girl stay in the
dark with my cheating friend?
Between a friend and a hard place
Dear Between,
First, kudos to you for caring enough
about both your friend and his girlfriend
to put some thought into the situation
before acting on impulse. It's easy to want
to step in quickly without thinking about
the consequences. Friends (you and I are
no exceptions) often feel the need to fix
their friend's problems and there is no real
way to know how things will turn out if
ou step-in. I think your first step should
e talking to your friend. Obviously, the
honorable thing for him to do would be
to tell his girlfriend what he did, and that
would save you from having to get involved
further. Encourage him to be honest, face
the situation he created, and to come clean.
It amazes me how many people think they
can proceed in a relationship after screw-
ing up like this. If that approach doesn't
work and you still feel bad not telling the
girl what's happening, then I have just one
tiling to ask you - are you willing to lose
your friendship with the guy to save his
girlfriend? Worse yet, she may not even
care, or she may not "believe you. Talk about
an awkward situation then. So, while I'm
not telling you not to go to her, you have
to weigh the consequences that come with
doing so.
One word: Buzzkill
Benjamin Franklin once said that, "Beer is proof
that God loves us In the spirit of that act of love, the
beer industry has grossed billions of dollars every
year as people drink it down more and more. Of
course, when you consider the thousands of people
that get hurt or die because someone drinks too
much, or because they drink and then get behind the
wheel of a car it kind of ruins the party and makes
that keg look less inviting.
Right now, I imagine several of you are
going, "Oh no, not another don't drink and drive
speech and are now brushing me aside, call-
ing me various things and so on and so forth.
Well that's not exactly what I'm going for.
What I'm talking about is that very reaction.
People hear this message and some don't even bother
to really take it to heart. Why else do people continue
to die for the same reasons? Because no one wants
to hear the bad things about something they enjoy.
Along with beer, consider cigarettes and fast food; we
all know they're bad for us, but that doesn't stop us. It's
too much of a downer to think otherwise, and thus we
ignore the warnings and people continue to suffer and
die for the same reasons. That's why we continue to
see public service announcements, posters, pamphlets
and other pieces of information that remind us to not
do a lot of things we already know are bad for us.
I think Douglas Adams said it best:
"Human beings, almost unique in having the
ability to learn from the experience of others,
are remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so
For a society that has accepted Darwinism
enough, in most cases, to exclusively teach the theory
of evolution in public schools, we seem to do every-
thing we can to prevent the key point of it; natural
selection. Especially when it comes to those who
are less than intelligent; "stupid" as some might say.
Now when I say stupid, I mean stupid. Like Ein-
stein's parallel universe, bizarro twin stupid. The kind
of stupid where people get good ideas from reruns of
MTV's "Jackass The kind of stupid when you think
Newton's Third Law doesn't apply in the state you're in.
Have you ever read the warning labels on some
products? Chances are that label exists because
someone lacking in basic intelligence andor common
sense made a grievous error in judgment (had a dumb
idea) in which they were injured or killed (improved
the human gene pool and thus our species' chance
of survival). It's because of these people, some
worthy enough of what is colloquially known as the
Darwin Award, that companies are forced to print
ridiculous warnings on their products; the kind of
warnings about not doing things the average person
would probably not even conceive of doing in the
first place.
Unbelievable Warning Labels:
1. Hair dryer - Warning: Do not use while sleeping.
2. Iron - Warning: Never iron clothes on the body.
3. Vacuum cleaner - Do not use to pick up anything
that is currently burning.
4. Superhero costume cape - Warning: Cape does
not enable user to fly.
5. Pudding - Caution: Will be hot after heating.
6. Hair coloring - Do not use as an ice cream
7. Mattress - Warning: Do not attempt to swallow.
8. Swedish chain saw - Do not attempt to stop chain
with hands.
9. Matches - Caution: Contents may catch fire.
10. Toilet Plunger - Caution: Do not use near power
lines. (This one I don't think I want to know the
Here are some warning labels I found I just could
not believe. Keep in mind that each warning, caution,
and "do not" probably represents at least one person.
The bottom line is that if you're going to do
something questionably stupid, that's your right and
I honestly hope that you don't get hurt. Just leave
me out of it, because when you involve other people,
stupidity is no longer an excuse. I honestly think
that if more of us took greater care to consider how
our actions could affect others, this world would be
a better place. Everybody makes mistakes; just make
sure that yours don't end-up making you become
something that you really and truly aren't.

There is even an option to rate a

The three main criteria a pro-

Cooking with a friend is a great way to socialize while being productive.
Quick, easy meals for
the culinary challenged
Cooking has never been
more fun
It is another school night and
another night with no option but
to eat take-out for dinner. Not so,
mi amigos. Instead of ordering
a number four from McDonald's
yet again, cruise down to Harris
Teeter and load up the cart with
simple ingredients to spice up
dinner and keep your stomach
from eating itself.
Ground beef, chicken breasts
and pasta are staples that can
be cooked several different ways
and still be delicious and nutri-
tious. Selecting different season-
ings and sauces will have you
eating quesadillas one night and
shepherd's pie the next. Also, for
those worried about carbohy-
drates with pasta, there is organic
macaroni and cheese and whole-
wheat pasta readily available.
Cooking should never be con-
strued as a chore, but rather an
art form to be enjoyed as much as
the actual eating. Presentation and
ambience are 60 percent of what
makes food enjoyable and will
have you less likely reaching for
unhealthy snacks two hours later.
First and foremost, cooking
should always be accompanied
by music. Some enjoy playing
music that goes along with the
culture of the food. For example,
Ricky Martin would be an apt
choice while making tacos, or
play ABBA to complement the
preparation of Swedish meatballs.
Personally, I enjoy Italian mafia
music (Dean Martin, Louis Prima,
etc.) while I'm cooking, but it is
whatever keeps you happy cook-
ing dinner instead of relying on
the late-night delivery of Wings
Over Greenville.
If at all possible, try to cook for
two. Dinner with friends or your
significant other makes the meal
more of an event and as well as an
opportunity to spend time with
people you love. This will also per-
suade you to be more adventurous
with your cooking and to prepare
for the all too imminent future of
cooking for a family of your own.
The following are some reci-
pes easy to follow and delicious to
consume. As you become skilled at
these, try to expand your culinary
skills to more exotic dishes and
wonder why you ever thought fast
food was a good idea.
Many professors who have
poor quality ratings are only
scored by two or three students,

Some comments have nothing
to do with an instructor's ability to
teach. In one instance, a teacher's
cleavage is commented about,
which should have no relevance to
her skills as a teacher.
Brendan Long, senior media
production major, says that he has

A staple of fashion that
will outlast us all
Fashion, it seems will always
come in cycles. The go-go fashion
of the 1960s made an appearance
in the mid 1990s, as did the relaxed
1970s attitude recently. Even if
a mass trend explosion does not
occur, designers also have bor-
rowed certain key elements such
as the usage of lace from the Vic-
torian era or the re-creation of the
1950s cocktail dress.
There is one fashion style that
refuses to be locked into one era
or fall prey to the hot trends of the
day. Although many cite the preppy
style at the beginning of the 1980s,
it actually had its roots in the
pre-Vietnam days of the 1960s.
The prep look stemmed from
the dress code of New England prep
schools. The navy blazer, white
oxford, khaki pants and loafers are
still the staples of men at church
services and semi-casual weddings.
The prep look, unlike many
other styles is not only a choice in
dress but also an attitude. Preps
dislike anything ostentatious and
have a high regard for tradition.
Such feelings reflect in their
core labels of choice. True preps
all sport Lacoste, Ralph Lauren,
Vineyard Vines, J. Crew, Brooks
Brothers, Lilly Pullitzer and to
some extent L.L. Bean and Moun-
tain Hardware.
The important thing to remem-
ber is that those true to the prep
style do not openly flaunt their
labels. While having a gator or
a man on a horse on your shirt is
acceptable, try to keep logos to a
minimum. Like recognizes like and

other preps will recognize your
clothes simply by its cut or print.
On a quick note, to all of
those who believe that American
Eagle and Abercrombie & Fitch
epitomize the prep stature, you are
sadly wrong and need to immedi-
ately consult The Preppy Handbook.
The key elements to a prep's
wardrobe begins with the polo.
It is the perfect shirt. No matter
if you woke up late for school or
spent too much time on the tennis
court, throwing on a freshly
pressed, solid color polo adds 15
points to your appearance.

an internship will always help you.
Although not all majors require an
internship to graduate, they are
still strongly advised to gain expe-
rience into the working world.
After graduation, thousands of
people flock into the work world
looking for a job by sending out
an enormous number of applica-
tions. If a connection were already
established between a company
and a specific person, then the first
step into the real world would not
be as difficult.
Internships are vital for net-
working and building a resume.
Grades are not always the key
to finding a job. Of course, it is

When it comes to
getting a job, it's a
tough world out there
Let me draw out the sce-
nario for you: You've just gradu-
ated from ECU after years of
working hard and, go ahead
and admit it, playing hard. You
are typing up your resume and
notice that it is a bit sparse.
You haven't joined any campus
organizations or teams, had a job
or done any volunteer work. Does
this sound like you in a couple of
years or maybe mere months?
If so, the employer of your
dreams won't be impressed that
you didn't take the opportunity
to get involved in the campus
community. Often employers
look for well-rounded people
who have accomplished not only
success in their academic life, but
in their personal lives as well.
I'll start with the most obvious
ways to add to depth to your resume.
One of the first things college
students should do is attempt to
join some type of organization
or club. Not only will you have a
chance to experience new things,
you can be part of a group that
interests and educates you.
Also, by being part of a campus
organization, you gain count-
less ways to network Through
networking you gain valuable
contacts that may be the link in
helping you get a job or internship
while you are still in school.
The next step is landing an
internship. There is no doubt
about it that internships open
up a number of doors that would
otherwise be out of reach by a
regular student.
Internships provide experi-
ence in your chosen field, and you
could even land a job if you go in
there and give it all you've got.
One of the most important
things for students to add to
their resume is job experience. It
doesn't matter if the job is in your
field or not, but just getting the
experience puts you one step ahead
of other potential candidates.
Landing and keeping a job for
a number of years will also give
you many valuable references.
Another great way to give
your resume an extra kick is
through volunteer work. Your
commitment to helping others
will not only score you tons of
points with an employer, but you
will also reap many personal
No matter what you do to beef
up your resume, every little bit
counts. Remember that the earlier
you start, the better off you will
be in the long run. Don't wait
until a month before you graduate
to decide to get involved in your
career goals, get started today.

resume, you can visit resume.,, or

Other prep fashion staples
include a pair of Sperry Topsid-
ers, croakies for your sunglasses
and a limited amount of denim.
The denim question is debatable
among some sets but when it
comes between linen pants and
blue jeans, the linen is clearly the
more acceptable choice. It is also
important for men to have a vari-
ety of bow ties while ladies enjoy
a wide array of head scarves and
head bands.
There are also certain prints
that are necessary and much loved
by the preppy nation. Seersucker,
preferably in blue, makes great
suits for men. The ladies are able
to change up their seersucker
colors by choosing between pink
and green also.
Madras has thankfully
returned and looks best in the
form of shorts or skirts. At present
the darker colored madras is the
right choice as the pastel madras
screams 40-year-old mom.
Argyle is a print that, like
moonshine, should be enjoyed in
moderation. Do wear the argyle
sweater or sweater vest. Do not
wear the sweater with a match-
ing bag and head scarf. It is also
a sweet little tease to wear solely
argyle socks that peak out only
when you sit down.
There are so many more
nuances that are included in the
preppy lifestyle. The clothes are
simply the tell-tale clues that the
person you are sitting next to in
English 1200 has probably worn
this exact style since birth.
Some who dislike this classic
style often have the gall to call
preps a bunch of sheep who all
dress the same. I believe these
naysayers are just confused. Preps
are wearing what they like and
ignoring what the fashion maga-
zines are telling them to wear. I
salute you all for never having to
update your closet.

Many times if the employer
is impressed with an intern, that
intern is guaranteed a job with
that company after graduation.
At times, some tasks performed
by interns may seem menial, but
if the small responsibilities are
not tackled, then the larger tasks
cannot be done.
The job market is extremely
competitive as more people are
graduating from college and
more jobs are being transferred
overseas for cheaper labor. The
standard of living is much higher
now than in the past. People are
expected to attend college, earn
a degree and make a respectable
living. Trade schools are becom-
ing less popular and small town
businesses are disappearing.
The working world is a cut-
throat environment of the expe-
rienced workforce trying to keep
their jobs and young hopefuls look-
ing for a big break. An internship
helps in the transition between
being a carefree college student
to a bill-paying, working adult.
Ask your advisor for more
information on how to acquire an
appropriate internship for your
career goals.

paid off.

When asked by a reporter at
his weekly news conference on
Monday, Amato embarrassed
himself even more than Saturday's
20-17 loss. Instead of focusing on
improvements, Amato provided a
half-hearted excuse. He took a pot
shot at Akron's ability to admit
partial qualifiers.
"They're in a conference that
allows non-qualifiers in school
Amato said. "Non-qualifiers. Do
ya'll need to look that one up to
write your stories? Do you know
what kind of players non-qualifiers
are, usually? They're inversely
proportional to what their grade-
point average is. They can make a

Chuck, just shut up baby.
Oh dear chest, has your
memory failed you? Two years
ago, an N.C. State team full of
full qualifiers embarrassed a John
Thompson led ECU squad full of
partial qualifiers 52-14. Keep in
mind that partial qualifiers have
to sit out for a mandated period of
time before they can be allowed to
compete in NCAA competition.
According to the News &
Observer, Akron athletics spokes-
woman Melanie Schneider con-
firmed Monday that the Mid-
American Conference allows
schools to bring in athletes who
do not qualify academically under
NCAA rules for freshman eligibil-
ity. Schneider said Akron had three
nonqualifiers in the program last
season and has one on the roster
this season.
ECU has approximately seven
players on its roster that were
partial qualifiers. Current cap-
tain and starting defensive end
Shauntae Hunt was brought in as
a partial qualifier, but with hard
work in the classroom is on pace
to graduate.
What is wild is that Amato
wants to deflect the blame of losing
to an inferior team on the last play
of the game towards recruiting.
Aniato's flamboyant persona has
achieved him national status yet he
is arguing that Akron has recruit-
ing advantages. Ten days out of .g
ten, N.C. State will beat Akron for
a blue chip recruit. &

Rivers and Mario Williams have

The Lady Pirates, led by co-
captain setter Heidi Krug who
logged 37 assists, had their way
with the Seahawks in the first
game, taking only 15 minutes to
take the 1-0 lead.
The second game saw the
Seahawks fight back point for
point as The Lady Pirates strug-
gled to gain any kind of lead until
the game was tied at 25-25, when
they were able to finally break
free. Led by Wernert's 13 kills,
the Lady Pirates were able to shut
down the Seahawks once and for
all in the third game.

Holtz talks with media
Skip Holtz answers questions during his weekly press conference.
(ECU SI D) ECU head foot-
ball coach Skip Holtz addressed
members of the media prior to
this week's game against Mem-
phis. The following are selected
On UAB Game: "It was a
very disappointing way to lose,
especially when you go back and
watch the film. It was difficult
because I thought our players
competed extremely hard and I
thought they played extremely
hard. I was really proud of a
lot of positive things from an
intangible standpoint because of
the way they stayed together, the
way they competed and how hard
they played. It's tough because we
didn't play very well but yet we
still had the opportunity to win.
"What was disappointing
about it was I don't think that we
followed our plan. We have a plan
on how to win. Penalties hurt
us in this game. We had three
holds and a personal foul. We
had 60 yards of offensive called
back in penalties. I think that the
penalties were part of on of the
struggles that we had.
"I thought our red zone pro-
ductivity was very poor. We were
inside the ten-yard line three
times and only got on field goal
out of it. We were not able to push
the ball in. It is very difficult to
win when you turn the ball over
three times.
"It was very disappointing
how we played the first half. I
was very pleased with the way
the offense responded to the
challenge we gave them at half
time. We came in at halftime and
tried to settle everybody down
and let them catch their breath
a little bit. I thought offensively
we played much better than we
did in the first half. We still had
a turn over but I thought we
played better.
"Even with all the mistakes
we made we still had an oppor-
tunity to win. I think that speaks
volumes for these players' atti-
tudes and their competitive
nature. My eighth grade football
coach text messaged me on Sat-
urday night and he talked about
that being disappointed is a part
of life but being discouragement
is a choice. Right now this was a
disappointing loss but we are not
going to get discouraged, we are
not going to turn on each other
and we are not going to fall apart
from within. When things get
difficult that's when its time to
circle the wagon, to bring every-
body in tighter together, and to
form a bond and a closeness. The
only way to get through it all is
to go out there on those practice
fields, work hard and to continue
to try and get better
On Defensive Play: "I thought
we played extremely well on
defense. Our defense was prob-
ably our second-best effort since
I've been here. It was second-best
to the West Virginia game we
played a year ago. Two months
ago if you looked it at and you
mention Scotty Robinson, C.J.
Wilson, Wendell Chavis, Zach
Slate, Van Eskridge, Quentin
Cotton, Jeremy Chambliss, Fred
Wilson and Jarrett Wiggins,
most of these guys nobody had
ever heard of. These are the guys
that are not only starting but are
really making plays for us in the
front seven. It was really excit-
ing to see these younger players
coming along. Defensively we
could get better. We made some
mistakes and we will continue to
improve. I thought overall they
played extremely physical and
they played tough. It was one of
our best efforts against the run,
they only averaged three yards
a carry. Defensively we played
pretty well against a very senior
laden football team
On Offensive Play: "When
you look at it from an offensive
standpoint it was very frustrat-
ing. The first half was probably
one of the worst halves of football
we played since I've been here.
We did not play well early in this
football game and I give UAB a
lot of credit because they had a lot
to do with that.
"I talked during the week
about how I don't like to play
a conference game this early
a because there is an element of
1 surprise. You only have one game
on film and you don't really know
what you are going to get. All the
sudden you get out there on game
day and haven't had the opportu-
nity to coach your players up on
what they are going to see and
what they are going to expect. I
give them (UAB) a lot of credit
for what they did. They played
about seven different coverage's
in the secondary and they mixed
them all up. That made it very
difficult to attack what they were
doing because you could never
really get a beat on it. They were
determined not to give James
(Pinkney) the same coverage
twice in a row. They mixed some
things up. They played man cov-
erage on Aundrae (Allison) and
they doubled him. They rolled
some things in the field too deep
and they created an lot of confu-
sion and I give them credit
On Memphis: "Memphis has
a very good football team. I
think they are a lot different than
they were a year ago in a lot of
respects. When you look at their
defense about the only thing that
you can guarantee is that they
will have eleven guys on defense.
They may seem like they have
twelve or thirteen at times with
they way that they run around.
They may have one defensive
lineman or they may have eight
defensive linemen. I think that
we are going to have to be very
simplistic in our approach with
what we ask our guys to do up
front with all the confusion they
try to create. They are similar
to us in that they are young up
front in the front seven, and they

baylor (2004 ray guy winner)
ECU's Dougherty named to
Ray Guy Watch List
see HOLTZ page A10
(ECU SID) ECU senior
punter Ryan Dougherty was
named to the 2006 Ray Guy
Award Watch List, which is given
annually to the nation's top colle-
giate punter, the Greater Augusta
Sports Council announced today.
The Orlando, Fla. native, who
was named to the watch list in
2004 and 2005, currently ranks
fourth all-time in Conference
USA in career punts (194) and
career punt yards (8,201). In the
season opener against Navy, he
became just the fourth punter on
C-USA history to amass 8,000
with his second punt of the game
(54 yards).
Heading into his senior
season, Dougherty was rated as
the 13th best punter nationally
and a preseason second-team All
C-USA selection by Phil Steele
Magazine. For his career, the
two-time All C-USA performer
(2003-04) is averaging 42.3
yards per punt and has placed
56 punts inside the opponent's
20-yard line.
The Ray Guy award is pre-
sented to the nation's best col-
legiate punter as determined by
a national selection committee
made up of sports writers, college
football coaches, sports informa-
tion directors, former punters
and members designated by the
Greater Augusta Sports Coun-
cil. Among the statistics used
to identify the Ray Guy Award
winner are total yardage punted,
number of times a punt is downed
or kicked out of bounds inside
the opponents 20-yard line, net
average, average returned yard-
age, and percentage of punts not
returned. It is also of importance
for the award winner to display
team leadership, self-discipline,
and to have a positive impact on
the team's success.
The Ray Guy Award watch
list will be narrowed to ten semi-
finalists in early-November. The
national voting body will then
vote for the top three finalists
who will be announced at the
end of November. The winner
will be announced live on ESPN
during the Home Depot College
Football Awards show, which will
take place in Orlando, Florida on
December 7, 2006.

located, maybe you don't realize
that Akron isn't in the BCS. Yeah,
the Zips don't get an ante out
of the approximate $16 million
payout for being affiliated with
one of the power six conferences.
Or the Wendell Murphy
Center which dwarfs ECU's $13
million facility with the same
surname. The C. Richard Vaughn
Towers, a 51 suite, six story
press facility trumps any facility
on ECU's campus. In fact, ECU
Athletic Director Terry Holland
has discussed a similar facility,
which is at least five years away
from being completed.
Amato's bells and whistles
include N.C. State's Carter-Finley
Stadium, which holds 57,082
while Akron's Rubber Bowl seats
31,000. ECU lists its stadium
capacity at 43,000. However, N.C.
State recently underwent stadium
renovations that in total cost the
university $90 million.
With all of the facility advan-
tages, Amato seemed to offer
another excuse when asked why
the Wolfpack should never lose to
an inferior team like Akron.
"We just got the facilities

Amato is feeling his seat
getting hotter as his seven-
year record stands at 47-29.
His nonconference record is an
impressive 24-4, yet weaker
opponents often litter the
schedule. The Akron loss was
his first to an opponent from
a non-BCS conference. The
Wolfpack travels to Southern

ECU Men's Golf finishes
ninth at Mid Pines
(ECU SID) ECU senior
Robin Smith finished with a
two-over 218 to record a 24th
place finish at the 2006 Mid Pines
Intercollegiate hosted by UNC
Greensboro. Freshman Tripp
Brizendine finished one stroke
back of his ECU teammate with
a three-over par 219 to place 31st
as the Pirates shot a team total of
13-over par to place ninth.
Smith shot a two-over par
74 during Tuesday's final round,
while Brizendine carded a three-
over par on the final 18 holes.
Junior Anthony Reale turned in
the Pirates' best round of the day
with a one-over par 73. Reale
completed the tournament with an
overall score of five-over par 221.
Markus Leandersson and Andre
Thorsen each finished at 6.
Wisconsin shot a final round
285 as a team to win the 2006 Mid
Pines Men's Golf Intercollegiate.
Wichita State's Ryan Spears
finished off his great rally by win-
ning the individual title. Spears,
who set a tournament record and
just missed the course record
with a second round 63 yesterday,
shot a 67 on Tuesday to rally
from a six-shot deficit to take
individual honors. Spears had
opened the tournament with a 75
yesterday morning. However, he
rallied back to nip Wofford's Neil
O'Briain, the second round leader,
by one shot and Marshall's Chris-
tian Brand by two strokes.
Wisconsin, which had three
players finish in the top 10, edged
out Old Dominion and Wichita
State by two shots in the team
standings. Jeff Kaiser led the way
for the Badgers, finishing in a tie
for fourth place at seven-under
par, four shots behind Spears.
East Carolina will return to
action October 2-3 at the Joe Agee
Invitational in Williamsburg,
Va hosted by William & Mary.

are experienced in the secondary
because everybody returned from
a year ago. On offensive they are
different in that they have two
very good quarterbacks that were
injured last year that they had
the opportunity to red shirt last
year. They much more balance as
a football team than they did a
year ago. They are more heavily
throw oriented than they are run
oriented. They are rushing for
about 125 yards a game and they
are throwing for about 275 so they
are averaging about 400 yards a
game on offense. This is a very
good team an it will be a great
challenge for us
On ECU Squad Players: "The
kicking game I'm starting to feel is
very solid. Since I've been here we
have a had a very good kicker in
Robert Lee and we have had a very
good punter in Ryan Dougherty.
What I don't think has been very
solid here are our coverage teams
and our kicking teams have been
very good. I think that it is an area
that we need to improve. We came
up with something this summer
where we were going to try and
develop a dirty dozen. We were
going to try and develop guys that
were back ups that were second
team guys that wouldn't normally
get an opportunity to play many
plays in the game and put them on
special teams and develop a pride
in it. I thought for one of the first
times that our kicking game, our
coverage, our punt protection, our
kickoff coverage, and our kickoff
return is really starting to get
close. I feel like our kicking game
is becoming a solid part of what
we are doing right now. We aren't
making anything happen yet, but
at the same time we are not hurt-
ing our football team from a spe-
cial teams standpoint. Some of the
guys right now that are making
up the dirty dozen are, Markeith
McQueen, Jay Sonnhalter, Kort
Shankweiler, Herman Best, Jerek
Hewett, Lorenzo Osborne, and
Van Eskridge. We are trying to
develop that as a group of starters
just like we have on offense and
On Aundrae Allison's perfor-
mance: "Their game plan was not
designed to take Aundrae away.
They had some things where
they could have doubled Aundrae
is he was hurting them and they
mixed those in there. It was one of
those nights. I think Aundrae was
frustrated but with not having a
catch or not getting the ball. His
frustration was that he wasn't
making the plays. James threw
a couple of balls high early and
they would have been nice catches.
They were plays that Aundrae
AllisonJ expects to make and
he was frustrated with himself.
Other guys started to step up. We
are not the Aundrae Allison show
anymore. Steven Rogers, Bobby
Good, Kevin Roach and Davon
Drew are all starting to become
weapons for us and are stepping
up an making some plays for us. I
think his frustration was that he
wasn't performing to a level he
wanted to perform to and not one
of its all about me and my record
of how many games in a row I
catch a pass. I think that Aundrae
Allison would turn in a no catch
performance for a win
On Dominique Lindsay and
team injuries: "Dominique Lind-
say went out of the game with
and injury to his knee. He has
an MRI today and then we will
find out the depth of that injury
a little bit more. He was not able
to go back in the game. Other
tha that there was bumps and
bruises. Nothing that should
keep anybody out of a game. The
positive side of the injury report
is that Shauntae Hunt and Pierre
Bell have been cleared for practice
this week, lorman Whitley had
shoulder surgery last Friday and
with Dominique Lindsay being a
question mark for this week, Chris
Johnson and Brandon Fractious
will carry the load
On Chris Johnson's perfor-
mance: "I thought he played
better Saturday than the week
before. In camp we talked about
how we need to run the ball more
and be more decisive. His biggest
problem right now is that Chris
Johnson is always looking for
the home run ball. Chris gets in
the backfield and he is dancing
too much and cutting too much.
I will live with whatever decision
he makes as long as it is decisive.
I think he played better but we
need to grow on that. He is still
not were he needs to be as far as
his decision-making. He wants to
do well and get the running game
on track but in doing so he hurts
himself. We just have to keep
working with him and get him
working downhill
On Pat Dosh's play: "(Pat)
Dosh is one of those guys that is
playing on a lot of special teams
and doing a lot of good things.
We felt we were better suited to
turn and spread the field than we
are to turn and get in just two
backs an try and play a power
running game
continued from A10
Kelley Wernet, left, goes for a kill. Heidi Krug, right, records another assist as ECU takes down Campbell
Junior middle Mocker Mignon
Dubenion added 10 kills to Wer-
nert's 13. Wernert also led the
team in digs with seven, followed
by Stephanie Turner and Trish
Monroe, Krug's co-captain, who
both had six.
After the game, Krug and
Wernert expressed displeasure
with the performance of the team
in the second game.
"Game two we just completely
dropped to their level said Krug.
"We weren't playing our game
"We started falling to their level
of play Wernert concurred.
Between the second and third
games, head coach Chris Rushing
and his staff began to become
more vocal with the team. In the
third game Rushing became more
and more vocal moving closer to
the court to instruct his team.
Rushing noted that he thought
the team seemed to relax a little
bit after the first game and let the
Seahawks get back into the match.
"After the second game we
were just like, 'We know we are a
way better team than that and we
took care of business Krug said.
As for Rushing approaching the
court, Krug said "He was trying
to light a fire under us
Rushing was a little more
"In game three I kind of
threatened them a little bit
Rushing said with a laugh.
"We threatened them with
some running stuff. I said 'If we
do not come out with some fire
and intensity in game three and
come out on top with the big
victory, something was going to
happen Luckily for the team,
Rushing has relented on that.
"That something's not going to
happen now because I though that
they came out playing hard for
that third game
