Healthcare in eastern North
Carolina discussed at seminar
Phyllis Trible, pictured above, lectured to a more-than-full house last night.
Biblical scholar lectures
Dr. Phyllis Trible spoke
as part of the annual
Jarvis Lecture Series
Renowned biblical scholar, Dr.
Phyllis Trible, spoke yesterday
at the 15th annual Jarvis lecture
on Christianity and culture. The
lecture, which was sponsored by
the ECU religious studies program
and supported with a contribu-
tion from the Jarvis Memorial
United Methodist Church, was
held downtown at the Willis
Although the annual lecture
has hosted many famed scholars
in the past, the majority of people
were very excited about this year's
lecture because Dr. Trible is con-
sidered to be one of the major femi-
nist interpreters of the bible.
Dr. Trible is known interna-
tionally and has lectured across the
U.S. and abroad. She has written or
edited six books and appeared on
the television series, "Genesis: A
Living Conversation She has also
taught in many schools throughout
the U.S including Wake Forest
Divinity School.
"Dr. Trible is a pioneer of
provocative, scholarly interpreta-
tion of the bible said Dr. Calvin
Mercer, co-director of the Reli-
gious Studies Program. "I heard
her lecture when I was a young
seminarian and have followed
her career through the years. An
excellent linguist, she brings fresh
insights to old texts and does it
very capably
This year's lecture, which was
titled "Taking back the bible
focused on the role of the bible in
contemporary American culture.
Dr. Trible lectured on her belief
that Americans use the bible to
explain their actions and opinions
in many areas of their lives. Dr.
Trible believes that the bible is
being used to explain people's
views on everything from abortion
to technology.
"Take any issue tearing apart
our nation and our churches and
you will find the bible being used
to support or even defy what
a given group deems right or
wrong said Trible.
The lecture was followed by a
question and answer session which
allowed people to ask Dr. Trible
any questions they had about her
lecture. Almost the entire audience
stayed and most had questions
to ask her. With more than 250
Speakers talk about
benefit of experience
Thursday, Sept. 18, from 7 p.m.
to 9 p.m the World Affairs Council
of Eastern North Carolina spon-
sored a seminar entitled, "Bringing
International Health Care to Eastern
North Carolina: Why Should Our
Trainees Study Abroad?" which
was held at the Monroe Conference
Center of Eastern AHEC.
S5 The two-hour long discussion,
which included speeches from
several medical professionals and
a student of the Brody School of
Medicine, was the issue of medi-
cal students studying abroad, and
how the experience exposes them
to advantages that they cannot get
in eastern North Carolina.
Dr. Joseph Zanga, assistant
dean and professor of Pediatrics
at Brody, headed the speakers
and presented his own views on
why he believes students can get
all the training they need in the
surrounding eastern counties. In
an attempt to prevent a one-sided
discussion, he compared a past trip
to Kerala, India to much of what he
sees in eastern North Carolina.
Zanga talked about how medi-
cal professionals have to face the
poverty rates not only in India, but
in this area as well. He also spoke
about isolation and distances from
medical facilities; another issue
that is present in both areas. He
then.brought the literacy rates of
both places to the audience's atten-
tion, and made the point that while
theocracy rate in Kerala is almost
100 percent, it is certainly less
in our region. He concluded his
speech posing the question, "Why
go there when the problem is
greater here?"
The second speaker to pres-
ent was Dr. Benjamin Gersh, a
resident physician at Brody. He
spoke of a trip to Kenya which
he took while in medical school,
acknowledging the fact that while
there are serious issues in eastern
North Carolina, there are many
opportunities for learning while
abroad that are not present here.
He outlined his speech, examin-
ing how the general competen-
cies that are staples to education
in the medical field are difficult
to completely fulfill through a
single perspective. He discussed
our nation's heavy reliance on
technology and machines to make
diagnoses, and posed questions
regarding possible responses to
emergency situations.
Gersh made the point that while
he was in Kenya, himself and others
had to make physical diagnoses
because of a lack of technology. H4
also discussed how in other coun-
tries, students may get the chance
to see a number of diseases that are
not prevalent in this region, or even
advanced stages of diseases they
learn about but are never exposed
to. He brought up the point that
studying abroad enables students
to put the basic principles that
textbooks teach to use.
In addition, Gersh said that
although this region, as well as
the rest of the country, is not faced
with foreign diseases presently,
there may come a time when that
does occur and then medical pro-
fessionals will be prepared, having
already seen it in other countries.
The third speaker to present
is a second-year medical student
at Brody, Laurie Green. She spoke
of the education she got from the
four-week trip she took to Guate-
mala and the experience, which she
would not have been able to receive
here. She spoke about social justice
and patient advocacy and how the
trip instilled a sense of passion in
her for the profession.
Green stressed how impor-
tant the experiences were while
in Guatemala, and spoke about
the emphasis on autonomy of
not having a professor or doctor
always present to assure every step
is correct. She presented a statistic
that showed that students who go
abroad are more likely to serve
underdeveloped places and are also
more likely to return to where they
studied, stressing the significance
of an education abroad.
The last speaker to present
before the discussion was opened
to the audience was Dr. Bruce
Johnson, professor and vice chair
for education at the department
of internal medicine at Brody. His
support for training abroad came
from an educator's perspective,
and he emphasized that it is also
important for medical educators to
study in an area outside of eastern
North Carolina. He discussed how
the experience gives educators
an opportunity to observe and
fulfill the responsibility of bring-
ing home better ways to organize
medical care. He also talked about
how the experience would benefit
the school and give them ideas
about how to further develop the

Financial Aid office
under investigation
Ineligible students may
have received aid
An article published in the
Greenville Daily Reflector on
Sunday said that the Pitt County
District Attorney is currently
looking at results from an inves-
tigation into "possible misuse of
financial aid" at ECU.
The article stated that a univer-
sity graduate, a former employee
of the Office of Student Financial
Aid and others may have granted
money to students who were not
eligible for assistance in exchange
for a cut in the funds.
After reviewing the content
of the two-year SBI investigation,
the District Attorney will decide
whether or not to file criminal
charges, the article said.
University spokesman John
Durham said he could not com-
ment on the case.
"We turned the case over
to the SBI over two years ago
Durham said. "Like you, I know
what I read in the newspaper
School officials are not reveal-
ing details of the investigation at
the time, though they say no stu-
dents lost money, the article said.
Attempts to contact District
Attorney Clark Everett, the Office
of Student Financial Aid and
Corey Johnson, the author of the
article, were unsuccessful at press

tinue to follow the story.

Children's literature to be the focus of literary review
Stories for children
considered most
The 2006 North Carolina Lit-
erary Review is a literary journal
housed in ECU's English depart-
ment and has just published its
15th edition.
Editor Margaret Bauer said,
"What wonderful writers for chil-
dren and young adults we have
living in North Carolina. We hope
this year's issue will be enjoyed by
the whole family
Among the featured stories
is Tani, the first fairy tale writ-
ten by Northampton County
children's author Mebane Holo-
man Burgwyn, the author of The
Crackerjack Pony in 1969, and River
Treasure in 1947.
Bauer said of Tani, "This story
along with original illustrations
had never been published
Sarah W. Davis, a librarian at
the Sallie Harrell Jenkins Memo-
rial Library in Aulander, N.C
found it in the archives of the UNC
Greensboro library.
"It may actually be the first
story Burgwyn ever wrote down
Burgwyn, who died in 1993,
was internationally known for
writing stories about farm life.
Her six novels became staple
reading for schoolchildren in the
jlp50sand 1960s.
Her novels were also pioneer in
respect to writing about African
American children in literature.
The NCLR was available at the
North Carolina Literary Home-
coming on Sept. 30.
Homecoming was made possible
by a generous grant from the North
Carolina Humanities Counci

Car stolen by N.C. man wanted for slay-
ing of wife found in Tennesee
(AP) A car believed stolen
by a man accused of gunning down
his estranged wife at a western
North Carolina women's shelter
was found in a bus station parking
lot in Tennessee, authorities said
Investigators confirmed
that the abandoned 2006 Honda
Civic was the car John "Woody"
Woodring, 35, allegedly stole last
week from a neighbor in Sylva,
N.C, about 116 miles east of Knox-
ville on the other side of the Great
Smoky Mountains.
"They are just trying to find
any leads or anything else here in
town. He could still be around this
area DeBusk said.
Woodring was already wanted
on domestic violence charges
after being accused of violating
a protective order and trying to
strangle his wife at her home four
days before the murder.
Police had traced all of
Woodring's connections in west-
ern North Carolina, including two
former wives, and in his native
Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

Major biodiesel plant opens in NC to
convert chicken fat to fuel
(AP) A company that began
by making alternative fuel from
french fry grease is now ready
to start major production of
Piedmont Biofuels plans to
convert chicken fat into l million
gallons of biodiesel per year at the
factory, making a fuel that creates
less pollution and provides an
alternative to oil.
It's the first of three biodiesel
production plants being built in
North Carolina, which is among
the nation's top consumers of
biodiesel fuel.
"This whole thing has been
driven by a quest for more fuel
said Lyle Estill, a Piedmont Bio-
fuels executive. "I was making it
for my tractor at home. In some
ways, this represents a continua-
tion of our quest. A million-gallon
plant is our attempt to meet more
fuel needs
The factory was launched
Monday in Pittsboro west of
Raleigh, though actual production
is still a few days away.
Once the biodiesel is cleaned,
it is ready for sale.
"To have it made right here
is going to make it more reliable
and reduces transportation costs
said Tobin Freid, coordinator
for Triangle Clean Cities at the
Triangle J Council of Govern-
ments. "By making it here and
using local feedstocks, you are
eliminating all that impact on
transporting fuel
Injured seal pup takes a ride with
intoxicated driver and a pitbull
(KMTR) An injured seal
pup took an unexpected ride with
an allegedly intoxicated driver on
the Oregon coast. The other pas-
senger in the vehicle; a pit bull.
Police discovered the harbor
seal pup inside a van during a
traffic stop on Highway 101 in
Florence on September 17. Offi-
cers arrested the driver, Matthew
Charles Lane, 24, for DUII and
Unlawful Possession of Wildlife.
Officers took the seal pup
to the Oregon Coast Aquarium
for rehabilitation. The seal is
being treated for minor puncture
wounds. Police say those wounds
may have been caused by a pit bull
dog found in the van.
Lane, who recently moved to
Oregon from Nevada, told police
he and his brother rescued the seal
pup from an attack by other seals
on an area beach. Lane said he was
taking the seal to a veterinarian
but couldn't find a vet's office that
was open on a Sunday.
Fish & Wildlife experts urge
people not to touch or pick up seal
pups or other wildlife on the beach.
If the animal is injured, you should
leave it alone and contact the
OSP Northern Command Center
at 1-800-452-7888 or notify the
Oregon State Police.
Police say Unlawful Possession
of Wildlife is a Class A misde-
meanor punishable by a heavy fine
and possible jail time.
Rogue Squirrels Attacking People in
(KMTR) Parks officials in
Mountain View, Calif, are on the
offensive against squirrels they
say have become dangerously
aggressive, attacking at least three
The latest victim was four
yearold Andrew Packard,
attacked by a brown tree squirrel
as his mother unwrapped a muffin,
The San Jose Mercury News
"It was such a horror his
mother, Jennifer, said of the attack,
which left her boy with a trail of
red claw marks, a bite on his upper
arm, and a regimen of painful
rabies shots.
"To hear your child screaming
the way you've never heard before
It was just bone chilling she
told the newspaper.
Parks officials are now seeking
permission to set traps and are
cracking down on visitors feeding
the wildlife.
As for Andrew, he declared he
would never go into a park with
trees again, and he keeps telling
everyone the squirrel was trying
to eat him.
City officials have offered to
give him a tour of the police and
fire station.
Student fee increase possible healthcare
continued from Al
encouraged to act as a
student voice
The major topic of discussion
at the second congress meet-
ing was getting student rep-
resentation about the possibil-
ity of student fees increasing.
Chris Welch, student body
treasurer, spoke about the increase
and stated that under the N.C.
Board of Governors, the highest
possible increase would be $346.
The reason for the increase
is to provide new or improved
services to the student body. Pro-
posals submitted for the increase
ranged from $1.50-$50.
The congressmen were encour-
aged to serve on a commit tee to pro-
vide student representation on the
issue of the increase in student fees.
M. Cole Jones, student body
president, also encouraged con-
gressmen to participate in numer-
ous things that will help bring a
student voice to issues and polices.
Some of the committees, orga-
nizations, or events that Jones
encouraged congressmen to be
involved in were to provide stu-
dent representation at the Board
of Trustees meetings, March of
Dimes, and Elite Leadership Team.
These different things that
Jones proposed would allow the
congressmen to be involved more
within SGA and outside SGA.
"The Elite Leadership Team
will expose you to different enti-
ties in student government said
Jones was pleased that six
students from SGA will have the
opportunity to attend the asso-
ciation of student government or
ASG, conference this weekend.
Open positions in SGA were
addressed by Jon Massachi,
speaker of the congress, which
included parliamentarian and ser-
geant at arms.
The positions of sophomore
and freshman class officers were
also addressed by Matt Wag-
oner, elections committee chair,
while giving his elections report.
Wagoner explained the out-
come of the elections concerning
these two positions to the con-
gressmen and executive officers.
"The freshman class position
was challenged and Patrick Sebas-
tian will now act as the freshman
class advocate said Wagoner.
Allen Thomas resigned from
his position as sophomore class
officer and the process has begun
to elect a new officer for the
position according to Wagoner.
Suggestions about future elec-
tions were made by Wagoner such
as inducting due process in the
election procedure, holding office
hours, and placing a banner above
the polling site near Wright Place.
Marissa Phillips, spirit liai-
son spoke about the upcoming
"Paint it Purple Fridays which
will be on Oct. 7, 8, 19 and 20.
The purpose of this event
is to promote students wear-
ing purple on Fridays and at

Greek system has
trouble explaining
Few fuel stereotype, ruin perception of a
I've heard the stereotypes. Arrogant stuck-up
wannabe's who pay for their friends. A faction of
drunks who continually haze pledges to feel men-
tally superior. Daddy's boys and girls equipped
with croakies, boat shoes and Polos with their
noses stuck straight in the air. Trust me. I've
heard 'em. I used to say 'em.
While there are kernels of truth in every
stereotype, it's not what defines Greek Life. But
what does? Greeks tout that their social system
is based on brotherhood or sisterhood while those
outside the 'social circle' perceive it as a desperate
attempt to win over friends.
Judging opinion writer Ryan Cobey's account
of Interfraternity Council rush published
on Sept. 28, his portrayal of the aforemen-
tioned stereotypes seem to suddenly out-
weigh the consistent positives that enve-
lopes nearly nine percent of ECU's campus.
Cobey interjected his opinion based on
what he saw from Rush. Brothers drinking
bourbon at rush or trying to entice a rushee by
openingly requesting him to smoke marijuana
negates the countless hours of community
service tallied by individual organizations.
It trivializes the three state funded full-
time positions within the Office of Greek
Life. The actions cancel out the countless
hours that student leaders devote to contrib-
ute to their respective groups. It calls into
question the power of the numerous councils
that regulate its 34 fraternities and sororities
separated among three parent organizations.
Frankly, the fraternities involved should be
held accountable. The East Carolinian made an
editorial decision not to name the fraternities
involved. What was surprising though was the
enormity of the situation because Cobey reported
that five fraternities were embracing dirty rush
It embarrasses the actual few who consistently
follow guidelines.
Despite it not being publicized, multiple fra-
ternities asked rushees two semesters ago if they
wanted to drink alcohol. Nothing that Cobey saw
or reported should surprise anyone.
Just like the student's behavior at football
games, a select few ruin the perception of the
whole. It doesn't matter that over 2,000 people
followed the rules. What does matter, however, is
that a few sprinkled among the fraternities didn't.
But how can Greeks justify them-
selves properly when their social organiza-
tions were founded as secretive societies?
In order to keep their founders' ideals, the
Greek system has to stay just that, secretive.
Unless you are Greek and have been through
the pledging process, it's hard for an outsider to
judge the entire system while showing a fair bias
of what goes in literally behind closed doors.
According the Greek Life Web site, brother-
hood is "a unique, private bond based on intan-
gible, invisible principles The definitive draw-
to 'going Greek' is unfortunately to the public,
only known by those who are Greek.
So in response to various opinion columns
and multiple Pirate Rants, the Greek system has
to absorb it. It doesn't matter how fighting mad
it makes them or way off base it is. Its pillars are
based on secrecy and in order to protect its ideals,
Greeks should ignore them.
Yet not everyone is so smart. A commenter,
who posted his affiliation with the Greek system
with feedback about Cobey's article on the East
Carolinian Web site, called Cobey "unwanted" and
also used the term "bad apple and unbidded bitch
But truthfully, it's the people like him who
consistently ruin the Greek reputation who are
really the bad apples.
I want to first off say that I am not writing this
to attack the newspaper in any way, just to show my
concern. I am a member of the Greek community
and I'm sure you have received quite a few comments
recently, but I would still like to say my piece.
I did not read Tuesday's article written by Ryan
Cobey, but after reading today's article and all ofthe
Pirate Rants, I am very disappointed in this news-
paper. Whereas I know there are issues concerning
Greek life, and certainly Rush violations are a huge
problem, I feel like Ryan should have taken his con-
cerns to Ion or Kay in the Greek Office so that they
could have been dealt with more efficiently.
The bottom line is that the Greek Community
does a lot for East Carolina besides the big parties,
our GPA's are quite high, and we participate in
community service. Many Greeks hold offices in
SGA and tilings of that nature as well. I feel that by
publishing articles and Pirate Rants you are doing
nothing for the Greek community but hindering us.
Ion and Kay are working very hard to change the
Greek community, but articles such as you printed
today, are deleting every step forward we make.
The Pirate Rants are also doing nothing but
encouraging the fights between non-Greeks
and Greeks. Of course they are only opinions,
they are just feeding the fire and I feel that since
you choose which rants to publish and which
rants not to publish, you should realize that this
is not helping the University at all. I hope that
you can see where I am coming from in this,
the Greek community means a lot to me, and I
would hate to see the student body's opinions on
us change from articles that you are publishing.

No ifs, ands or
butts, smoking
is a danger
Ban campus smoking, save lives
We hear about anti-smoking campaigns on
a daily basis. Commercials of dead bodies being
stacked in front of cigarette company buildings
have become so common in our society that we
now tend to overlook them. The ever so outspoken
T.R.U.TH tours around the country help to show
peoplejust how dangerous the effects of smoking are
to the smoker and even the non-smoker beside him.
But are we really listening to this information
I'm sure by now almost all of you have seen
countless numbers of commercials on television
or even from your own friends. It is a subject that
non-smokers like to talk about a great deal and
smokers avoid at all costs.
However, when it seems that so many people
on campus have no respect for non-smokers, I
think we have every right to tell the world how
we feel about it. I can't count how many times
within the past two weeks I've had smoke blown
straight into my face as I'm walking to class. I
also remember from my time living on campus,
the obvious and disgusting smell of smoke as it
mixed in a hideous haze in front ofthe doors to
White Hall. I would fumble with my key to open
up the door as quickly as possible so I wouldn't
have to hold my breath for too long.
As we learn more and more about the
health risks caused by smoking, it makes us
think about what we can do to prevent our-
selves from losing years of our life due to
these preventable, toxic substances floating
around in our air. And I've done exactly that.
I personally think our campus would be much
better off if it were completely smoke-free. I'm
not talking about just making a 10-20 foot rule
for not smoking around buildings, but rather ban-
ning smoking throughout the entirety of campus
Think about it, two out of the three most
populous states in the United States, California
and New York, are also two ofthe strictest states
on smoking. California, a state with over 30 mil-
lion people, has completely banned smoking in
all public buildings as well as banned smoking
within twenty feet of a government building.
New York City, a city so crowded and cramped
has banned smoking in all restaurants and bars
in 2003, and since then has seen a dramatic
decrease in air pollution levels as well as a heavy
and steady increase in profit and even jobs within
their local establishments.
My point in presenting you these statistics
is to show you that in a way, our campus can
compare to an extremely crowded city center, like
New York. Over 5,100 students are housed on
campus this year. If you then factor in the other
15-16 thousand students who commute from off-
campus every weekday, you'll quickly realize that
our campus can get quite crowded. Obviously,
smoking is banned in our dorms and buildings
for good reason, but because of that, everyone
who does smoke has to go outside. And they all
seem to congregate in one small place outside of
their dorms or whatever building they have class
in next. I've noticed that the air in those particu-
lar spots never loses that distinct odor either.
Our air around campus may not look as pol-
luted as places like New York and Los Angeles, but
mark my words, there are fumes present that do
even more danger to our bodies than automobile
smog, and those are the fumes from secondhand
smoke. Perhaps, if we banned smoking from
campus entirely, we would not only help save
lives of current smokers who would be too lazy
to travel off campus, but we would also make so
many more places accessible and open to everyone.
Never again would the steps of Tyler Hall, or any
residence hall for that matter, be filled with just
smokers. People could actually linger there and
perhaps spend more time outdoors, even if it is
just to socialize. And maybe, just maybe, pro-
ductivity in the classroom would even be better.
I understand this would put current smokers in
a predicament, but, sometimes, radical steps like
this make people finally consider other alterna-
tives. As of right now, our campus still makes it
extremely easy for students to smoke. We don't
even have a rule preventing students from smok-
ing right beside residence halls! We, as human
beings, tend to learn from consequences, and it's
usually too late by the time we learn them. I think
banning smoking from campus entirely could help
students and staff alike consider the consequences
before it is too late for them.
I know some of you will read this and sub-
consciously add it to the ever-growing tally of
dead horses on the subject of smoking, but there
comes a point in time where, after reading and
hearing so much about a particular topic, you
start to wonder why it is such a big issue. Why
am I hearing so many negative things about smok-
ing Why are people 1 don't even know trying to
tell me 1 shouldn't smoke? I realize many people
would strongly oppose the idea of a smoke-free
campus, but even the idea can make people think
about what they are doing to their bodies and to
others as well. Moreover, if you continue to ask
yourself why the subject of" smoking is such an
important issue to many people, I have an answer
for you - because the most important issue to a
lot of us is our life.

ECULoessin Playhouse
presentation of 'Chicago'
Katie Wilson as Velma Kelly, Kyle Langworthy as Billy Flynn and Christina Kelly as Roxie Hart in Chicago.
Students will get a taste of the
roaring twenties
Set in Chicago during the twenties, this is a
story of vaudeville actresses turned murderers, all
imprisoned, vying for the attention of the press.
The acclaimed musical turned movie, Chicagd,
will be coming to the McGinnis Auditorium
this Thursday, Oct. 5 through Tuesday, Oct. 10.
While Usher and Ashlee Simpson won't be grac-
ing the stage, our own theatre department has
been hard at work to make sure this show is a
memorable one.
Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart are the first of
the ladies we meet. Both are vaudeville starlets
with dreams of making it big one day, both have
been abused by men, and both are in prison for
murder charges. Velma is a nightclub sensation
who becomes the focus of the tabloids when she is
arrested for shooting her husband and sister after
discovering their affair. The Chicago newspapers
love the story and their zealousness is fed by her
lawyer, Billy Flynn. However, Billy, more media
focused than anything, soon falls for the newest
headline star, Roxie Hart.
Roxie was merely a chorus girl looking for her
big break. She is seduced by a man who promises
to help her career excel. When it finally becomes
clear to Roxie that he has no such intention, she
shoots him in a tit of rage. This lands Roxie in the
same prison as Velma, and they find something
else in common, Billy Flynn. Billy now sees Roxie
as the bigger headline and turns his focus and
advances on her. .
Roxie, becomes the next media hot topic, much
to Velma s annoyance, However, Roxie lands in the
same boat as Velma when Go-to-Hell Kitty arrives
at the jail on a multiple murder charge. Soon, the
press forgets Roxie as they did Velma. With her
clever ways, Roxie manages to bring the media
focus back to herself, and its time for her court
date. Billy is ready to soak up the spotlight.
The musical is actually based on real events
that occurred in Chicago in 1924. Maurine Dallas
Watkins, a reporter for the Chicago Tribune, cov-
ered the public trials of Beulah Annan and Belva
Gaertner. Watkins' turned her findings into the
play Chicago. Bob Fosse obtained the rights from
her estate following her death in 1969 and devel-
oped Chicago: A Musical Vaudeville.
The play was produced in 1975 and as a part
of the City Center "Encores Series, the show
was revived in 1996. This version, which became
Broadway, opened on Nov. 14, 1996 and is still
The musical was adapted for the movie Chicago
in 2002, starring Rente Zellweger as Roxie and
Catherine Zeta-Jones as Velma. The film won the
Oscar for Best Picture, and Zeta-Jones won Best
Supporting Actress.
The musical numbers in the original produc-
tion are well-known vaudeville and night-club acts
of the 1920s. In ECU's production, they have added
their own touch to the musical, including a tribute
to the great stage and film musical choreographer,
Busby Berkeley.

ECU ROTC students working together on a ropes course at Camp Butner.
Day in the life: ROTC
Students focus on
tradition, training and
ECU is a university of tradi-
tion. For decades the Pirates have
been known for their extreme
pride and spirit. Since 1984, the
Reserve Officer Training Corps,
also known as the ROTC has
contributed to supplying ECU
with leadership opportunities and
professional training, instilling
bravery and dedication in each and
every student.
This semester, the ROTC has
72 participants who have endured
a rigorous selection process.
These students are well-rounded
with achievements in scholarships,
athletics and leadership.
Friday, Sept. 29, the ROTC
left for a field training exercise
(FTX) at Camp Butner, N.C.
where they spent two days dem-
onstrating their competency in
various areas.
According to CCPT Leslie
McCann, a senior health education
and promotion major, "The pur-
pose of FTXs is to build morale,
train the cadets for annual leader-
ship courses, and strengthen unit
cohesion to become junior officers
in the United States Army
The cadets carry an enormous
amount of equipment with them
for their training and missions.
CCPT Aaron Lewis, a senior
art major said that they have basic
necessities "two canteens, a flash-
light with a red lens to read a map,
two ammo pouches, one first aid
kit, a compass, a map, protractor
and a pencil
Senior health fitness specialist
major CCPT Michelle Layton
was the officer in charge of this
weekend's field training exercise.
She created the itinerary, coordi-
nated each event and assured that
the weekend operated smoothly.
CCPT Haley Willis, a senior
anthropology major expressed her
desire to be in ROTC by stating,
"Before I came to ECU, I had made
the decision to be in ROTC. No
matter where you are, you will
always have someone there for
you. We all freeze at night; we all
work hard during the day. We're
all soldiers
The field training exercise
included a regimented schedule
beginning with afternoon classes
teaching individual movement
technique, basic field craft such
as how to set up sleeping shelters
using a rain poncho, field hygiene,
noise and light discipline, and
hand grenade throwing. Closely
following the educational brief-
ings the cadets set up their sleep-
ing shelters, which they refer
to as "hooches As nighttime
approached, the cadets were sent
out into a large woodland where

Getting ready for a
night of sultry jazz
Acclaimed vocalist
to perform tonight at
Wright Auditorium
It is rare to find ajazz vocalist
that has earned so much praise in
such a short time frame. Remi-
niscent of the days where women
wore evening gowns to dinner and
martinis were always served at 5
o'clock, Tierney Sutton transfers
her listeners to an era where classy
and understated were the charac-
teristics to aspire to.
Hailed by The Boston Globe as
having "a honey voice with a
touch of Ella Fitzgerald" it would
seem that Sutton is destined to
grow more and more popular
- perhaps crossing over in a fash-
ion that echoes Michael Buble.
Her success has come from
the road less traveled. Sutton
began as a choir girl in Wis-
consin and was unexposed to
jazz until college. She eventu-
ally found the best collaborators
with their own impressive jazz
pedigrees - notably Natalie Cole,
Diana Krall, Ray Charles and
Randy Brecker.
Ten years and six critically
acclaimed CDs later, Tierney and
her band demonstrate what col-
lective consultation and dedicated
teamwork can achieve. Reviewers
repeatedly say that audiences expe-
rience rare and powerful harmo-
nies achieved by humble perform-
ers at the top of their game.
A versatile studio singer as
well as premiere entertainer,
Tierney s voice was recently fea-
tured on Lions Gate's hit film The
Cooler, starring William H. Macy
and Alec Baldwin. She can also
be heard in Paramount's Twisted,
starring Samuel L. Jackson, Andy
Garcia and Ashley Judd.
In 2004, Tierney and her band
scored the independent feature
film Blue in Green, released by the
Unica Project. Tierney's unique-
voice is also regularly featured in
commercials representing such
organizations as BMW, Coca
Cola, Dodge and J.C. Penney.
In March 2005, Tierney and
her band performed in front of
a select audience of friends and
fans at Birdland in New York
City. Produced by Elaine Mar-
tone, I'm with the Band is Tier-
ney's first live recording and her
fifth release on the Telarc label.
With old standards such as "The
Lady is a Tramp "S'Wonderful"
and "I Get a Kick Out of You
the album received a
Grammy nomination in
2005 for Best Jazz Vocalist.
In June 2005, Tierney won
Jazz Week's Vocalist of the Year
Award. An active educator, she has
served in the Jazz Studies Depart-
ment at the University of Southern
California and given workshops
and clinics throughout the world.
Come experience for yourself
why the Chicago Sun-Times has
called Sutton's style "as soft and
smooth as fine bourbon On Tues-
day, Oct. 3, 2006, Tierney Sutton
will perform at Wright Audi-
torium as part of the SRAPAS
series. Reserve your tickets now at

The bacterial meningitis vaccination, seen above, is recommended for all ECU students, even those not living in a dorm
This week in health: Meningitis
TUn i uua :U1 U. ll'T) limit 1. i :i ri:u )ci i I i 1 I i I, . .1 i .
The disease might be
more dangerous than
For many college students
meningitis is a word often heard,
yet its significance is rarely under-
stood. From my own experience,
the summer before freshman year
marked the first time I'd ever heard
the word. While taking a more in
depth look at the life threatening
effects of meningococcal bacteria,
the importance of alerting the
student body to the nature of this
disease has become evident.
Meningitis is a bacterial illness
that causes an inflammation of the
lining around the brain and spinal
cord. Its lesser-known counter-
part, septicemia, may also result
from meningococcal bacteria.
Typically more serious, septice-
mia is the blood poisoning form
of the disease.
Generally, Meningitis is bacte-
rial or viral, and can occasionally
be the result of fungal infections.
Although viral meningitis can be
quite unpleasant, it is rarely life
threatening and most people make
a quick, full recovery.
Meningococcal bacterium
has the power to cause meningi-
tis and septicemia concurrently.
When the two forms of the dis-
ease are contracted together,
the result is meningococcal
disease. Although this disease has
the potential to produce potent
consequences, septicemia alone
can be just as dangerous. Unless
accompanied by meningitis,
septicemia often holds no signs
of the disease, allowing it to
progress undetected.
The symptoms of meningi-
tis often resemble those of the
flu. These symptoms include:
Fever, severe headache, vomit-
ing, stiff neck, rash, sensitivity to
bright lights, delusions and feel-
ings of tiredness.
Although septicemia may have
symptoms similar to meningitis, it

Women's Studies is working
with North Carolina Women
United and Democracy N.C. to
co-host the Pitt County Women's
Agenda Assembly Saturday, Oct.
7, on the ECU campus.
Beginning at 1 p.m partici-
pants will meet in Bate 1031 and
split into small groups to discuss
and prioritize women-centered
issues they see as vital for action
by the N.C. General Assem-
bly. Everyone will re-gather
in the large group, which will
then note the most-frequently
discussed issues. There will be
tables available for program
and cause brochures, etc as
well as a voter registration table.
Refreshments are being provided
by the Thomas Harriot College
of Arts and Sciences and by Phi
Kappa Phi. Early in the spring
semester, Women's Studies will
host a workshop on successful
lobbying and will led a group to
Raleigh while the legislature is
in session. All events are free and
open to the public. A draft agenda
can be downloaded from the
events section of the Women's
Studies Web page, ecu.eduWOST.

presents several symptoms that
can be considered exclusively its
own. The symptoms of septice-
mia can include: Fever, vomiting,
muscle pain, cold hands and feet,
pale skin, breathlessness, rash,
tiredness and delusions.
Since meningitis and septice-
mia often go unrecognized, it is
important that you know what to
look for. If a person displays several
of these symptoms in combination,
it is vital that they seek medical
attention immediately.
Both meningitis and septice-
mia have the potential to progress
undeniably fast, possibly carrying
life-threatening consequences.
Despite popular belief, babies
and young children are not the
only groups who can contract the
disease. Although these two age
groups tend to be more susceptible,
persons at any age can be consid-
ered vulnerable.
Unfortunately, persons
who live in close proximity to
many individuals through close
quarters carry a higher risk of
contracting the disease. This

includes, but is not restricted
to: College students living in
dormitories or residence halls,
U.S. military and persons travel-
ing to a part of the world where
meningococcal disease is common.
Fortunately, an immuniza-
tion has been developed that can
prevent four types of the menin-
gococcal disease. Though the vac-
cination cannot prevent all types of
the disease, it does protect about
90 percent of those who receive it.
Once received, the immunization
typically lasts five years or longer.
So if I've caused anyone to be a
little on edge, there is good news
to be heard. Here at ECU, students
can receive vaccinations for menin-
gococcal disease from the Student
Health Center. Now that we've
all become more educated on the
disease, perhaps we will'find it to
our benefit to become immunized
and decrease the probability of
contracting it.

night land navigation.
The less experienced cadets
where not sent out alone. Cadet
Christopher Isaac was paired up
with CCPT Aaron Lew is. Prior to
this experience the two cadets did
not know each other Throughout
the night they worked side by side
running through difficult terrain in
efforts to find tliei r assigned targets.
CCPT Lewis supported Cadet
Isaac and encouraged him with pos-
itive feedback; this demonstrated
the leadership and camaraderie
learned from being in the ROTC.
Saturday, Sept. 30, the cadets
had to wake at 5:30 a.m. to eat
breakfast and prepare for an obstacle
course. There were 11 obstacles to
navigate though including a moving
log to climb over, wooden walls to
jump over and crawling mid-air,
upside down across a rope. As soon
as the obstacles were complete the
cadets were sent out into the woods
for a day land navigation. Upon
completion of the day land naviga-
tion, which took up to five hours,
the cadets went through a grenade
assault course. The grenade assault
course had cardboard silhouettes
replicating an enemy, which the
cadets had to throw grenades at.
After an exhausting day the cadets
had a ceremony recognizing certain
cadets of their accomplishments
from the summer and to honor

The women's cross country
team finished first at the McAli-

day. The event was the first home
meet for the team and was held at
Lake Kristi. The first place finish
was the highest since Oct. 4, 2004,
a span of 20 events.
Freshman Nicole Briggs

fer White immediately followed
Flynn by IK seconds to place fifth.
Samantha Lichtner placed
sixth with a time of 19:30.

about her team's success.
"We have really come a

Gardner-Webb finished second.
Jon Stoehr was the top men's

Sometimes trends are not a

to earn their first conference tie of
the season.
Goalkeeper Amber Campbell
played all 110 minutes in goal
giving up only one goal while
making 11 saves. The Pirate
defense was taken aback by the
speed of the Memphis team, as
the Tigers managed 29 shots
over the course of regulation and
overtime compared to only six by
the Pirates.
Memphis scored when Mem-
phis' junior forward Geneil New-
bern put one past Campbell in the
31st minute. ECU responded 26
seconds later when freshman for-
ward Jessica Swanson scored on a
pass from Kami York-Keirn.
Swanson's third goal of the
season tied her with senior Tara
Shaw for the team lead in goals
and freshman Sarah Kirkley for
the team lead in points. Despite
Swanson's sun ess, KCU Head
Coach Rob Donnenwirth was
unhappy with his team's lack of

Pirates down SMU,
swept by Tulsa
ECU volleyball coach Chris
Rushing is feeling a little better
about his team after this past
weekend's road trip to Southern
Methodist and Tulsa.
"We knew we needed to get a
win said Rushing, "It was nice to
see us play strong
Rushing and his Pirates were
able to split the two games on
the trip, defeating SMU three
games to one on Friday night
before taking the trip to Tulsa in
which the Golden Hurri-
canes got the sweep, win-
ning three games to none.
Heading into Friday night's
game with SMU, the Pirates had
dropped two consecutive games
at the hands of Tulane and UTEP.
They found themselves look-
ing up at their Conference USA
opponents, having gone 0-3 in
conference play.
Led by junior outside hitter
Kelly Wernerfs career-high 24
kills and 13 digs, the Pirates came
out of Dallas, Texas with their
first conference victory.
SMU fell to 10-7 for the season
and 1-3 in conference competi-
tion. The Pirates posted a similar
record at 10-8 on the year and 1-3
in conference.
Hushing was impressed with his
team'sfocusin the victory over SMU.
"We stayed focused the entire
match Rushing said. "There have
been times in the past where we
played well, but lost focus
The victory Friday night also
marked ECU's first ever win over
SMU in volleyball. The all-time
record now stands tied 1-1.
The team next turned their
eyes to the north, as they would
travel up to Oklahoma to take on
the Golden Hurricanes, standing
with a record of 17-3 fbr the season
and undefeated in C-USA at 4-0.
Taking on the Golden Hur-
ricanes at home proved too much
tor the young Pirates as they were
swept aside, earning Tulsa its ninth
consecutive win of the season.
I he Pirates were able to hang
around with Tulsa for most of the
first two games of the match, with

UAB is currently 13-5 overall
and 2-2 in conference games. The
Pirates will have the job of stop-
ping UAB's sophomore outside
hitter Ivana Bozic who recorded
a double-double in the team's
recent close loss to Memphis.
Memphis also sports a win-
ning record at 16-2 overall and
3-1 in the conference. They out-
lasted UAB in a five game victory
on Sept. 29. The Tigers are led
by senior libero Christen Clayton
who recently became the school's
all-time digs leader.
Rushing knows that his team
has their work cut out for them.

Women's golf finishes 11th
at Wildcat Fall Invitational
(SID) The ECU women's
concluded its first tournament
of the 2006-07 season with an
11th place finish at the Wildcat
Fall Invitational at the Univer-
sity Club's Big Blue Course in
Lexington, Ky.
The Pirates (4-10-0) moved
up two spots on Sunday after card-
ing a final round score of 318 to
finish with a 54-hole score of 977.
Playing conditions were
perfect for the final round, a
welcomed change from yester-
day's miserable winds and rain.
Memphis used a final day come-
back to edge Augusta State for
the tournament team crown.
For the Pirates, freshman
Ana Maria Puche shot a final
round seven-over par to finish
tied for 33rd. Puche was 15
shots behind Mississippi State's
Amanda Mathis, who was the
top individual. After carding an
85 in the opening round,
Puche rebounded with a two-
day 155 score. The top golfer from
last season's Conference USA
championship team, Lene Krog
claimed a share of 50th place.
Freshman Abby Bools tied for
55th place, senior Jessica Hauser
tied for 58th and freshman
Kristin Billings was 75th.
Heading into the final day
of action, Louisville held a one-
stroke advantage over Memphis
and N.C. State, but the Tigers
put together an impressive 298
third round to take home the
Augusta State began the day
five shots off the lead and enjoyed
a great final round to edge
the Wolfpack for second
place. N.C. State finished in
third, while Louisville and
Birmingham Southern rounded
out the top-five.
Mississippi State's Amanda
Mathis claimed the individ-
ual crown by a single stroke
a nine-over-par 225. Mathis
earned a second place finish in
last season's tournament. She
edged Louisville's Adri-
enne White and N.C. State's

However, the offense contin-

With senior leader Rachel

(SID) ECU junior Andre
Thorsen shot a two-under par
138 to finish tied for fourth place,
just two shots behind the leader,
after two rounds at the 2006 Joe

Ferguson leads the field after 36
holes with a four-under par 136.
The Pirates are tied for sixth

round of the day by shooting
a six-under par 64 during the
second round of competition.
ECU senior Robin Smith was
the only other Pirate to be in the
top 30 at the end of the first two
rounds, shooting a seven-over
par 147, tied for 29th. Smith was
just one-over through the first 18
holes, but struggled in round two
carding a 6.

The East Carolinian, October 3, 2006
East Carolina's student-run campus newspaper was first published in 1923 as the East Carolina Teachers College News (1923-1925). It has been re-named as The Teco Echo (1925, 1926-1952), East Carolinian (1952-1969), Fountainhead (1969-1979), and The East Carolinian (1969, 1979-present). It includes local, state, national, and international stories with a focus on campus events.
