ECU police to begin new initiatives Board of
Trustees
Student and faculty
safety is focus
CLAYTON BAUMAN
STAFF WRITER
The ECU Police Department is
beginning some new initiatives as
well as programs involving part-
nerships with other organizations.
The goal behind it is to enforce
student safety as well as care for
those victims of crimes in the ECU
community.
Ralph Whitehurst, adminis-
trative sergeant of the operations
division of the ECU police, has
commenced initiatives aimed at
enforcing yielding to the pedes-
trian crosswalks on campus.
According to surveys con-
ducted by the department, viola-
tions are most prevalent on Col-
lege Hill and Fountain Drive on
the interior ECU campus.
Forty-one percent of motor-
ists did not yield to pedestrians
on Fountain Drive compared with
61 percent that did not yield on
College Hill.
The department has purchased
more pedestrian crosswalk signs
that are placed in the middle of the
road to remind motorists to yield.
"This week we're starting
some type of enforcement actions
on the pedestrian crosswalks so
motorists do not injure pedestri-
ans said Whitehurst.
Penalties are still being deter-
mined, whether it be a warning
ticket or a citation.
The initiative was created by
Whitehurst and ECU Police Chief
Robert Stroud.
The department is currently
receiving funding through the jj
North Carolina Governor's High-
way Safety Program. The grants ft
received have allowed the depart
ment to purchase traffic enforce-
ment vehicles, and with funding jf
this year they hope to purchase
another.
The ECU Police Department,
according to a press release, has
also joined forces with the Office of
the Victim Advocate in an attempt
to provide better victim assistance
to the ECU community.
In the partnership, the police
department notifies Victim Advo-
cateofcases where crime victims may
be in need of crisis intervention or
different types of victim assistance.
The goal is for the ECU Police
Department to be aware of services
available to victims of serious

crimes such as domestic assaults,
sexual assaults, rapes, robberies
and other crimes.
The Office of the Victim Advo-
cate is a 24-hour service.
According to the press release
the police department is also work-
ing to increase community involve-
ment through various programs.
These programs include the
Residence Hall Liaison Program,
Staff and Faculty Eyes, Crime
Prevention Tuesdays and Rape
Aggression Defense.
The RHLOP is a way for
residence hall occupants to have
a direct line of communication
with the police department in an
attempt to stop crime in their hall.
SAFE works likeRHLOPexcept
its focus is on other campus buildings.
Crime Prevention Tuesdays
will happen every month and
will give ECU an opportunity
to "learn about crime prevention
strategies in hopes to reduce the
possibility of becoming a victim
and raise awareness of specific
types of crimes according to the
press release.
RAD will be a self-defense
training session available to males
and females. For more informa-

Law firms teach young

About 15 percent of students meet the criteria for depression, study says.
Helping students
cope with depression
Free screenings for
students
ZACK HILL
STAFF WRITER
Depression is not uncommon
on any college campus in the
nation.
"The top five reasons students
come in to see us are depression,
anxiety, relationship issues, adjust-
ment issues and substance abuse
said Dr. Atticia McAtee, counselor
for The Center of Counseling and
Student Development.
McAtee and others from the
center reached out to those stu-
dents by participating in National
Depression Screening Day. Stu-
dents looking for a little help had
the option of taking a quick screen-
ing test upstairs in Mendenhall
Student Center from 8:30 a.m.
- 4:30 p.m or at another session
in Bate 2015 from 6-8 p.m.
After completing the test, a
counselor would tally the answers
and then talk to the student about
I
their options if the results indi-
cated they might be depressed. The
screening also checked for signs of
anxiety disorders, bipolar disor-
ders and post-traumatic stress.
A 2004 study by the Ameri-
can College Health Association
showed that about 15 percent of
college students "meet the criteria
for clinical depression The report
also said that suicide is the second
leading cause of death among col-
lege students.
This is McAtee's second year
coordinating the event, though she
said it had been going on for sev-
eral years prior to her arrival.
"It provides an opportunity
for students to talk to a counselor
not in the center McAtee said.
"It's less intimidating. They get
to see us as real people. I think
we get some people we wouldn't

(MCT) Joan Newman, a
former partner at St. Louis law
firm Thompson Coburn LLP,
remembers interviewing job
candidates on the campus of a
prestigious law school. She was
expecting to see the usual flow
of dark-suited young men and
women, but her jaw dropped when
one male candidate showed up in
shorts, a T-shirt and flip-flops.
The meeting, said Newman,
highlighted the casualness that
pervades some young lawyers'
lives and their idea of the norm,
a view that won't cut it in the law
profession.
While new graduates may
be savvy about law, they may
not have a clue about how to
dress or act in a profession that
serves high-powered, conserva-
tive clients.
They might be sporting vis-
ible tattoos, for example. Some
women don't wear hosiery or
bras, and some men don't iron
their shirts. Many have no idea
which is their bread plate or how
to make small talk.
"I watched for years as associ-
ates came and went, and as bright
and competent as they were, they
lacked social and strategic skills
Newman said. "If an associate
doesn't look and act the part, the like-
lihood of his or her success is slim
Newman said a light bulb
went off in her head'late last year
and she decided to leave her law
career to start an "associate train-
ing and development" business
teaching young lawyers every-
thing from where their water
glass goes to how to work a room
and build relationships.
And while some of Newman's
friends questioned her sanity for
leaving a lucrative career for such
an odd and risky business, she is
on to something quite big in the
legal industry.
"It's part of a growing trend
called lawyer professional devel-
opment said James Leipold,
executive director of the Wash-
ington-based National Asso-
ciation for Law Placement.
"Law firms are throwing a lot
of resources into it. Rainmaking
(the term for bringing in new
clients) is an extension of social
skills so firms want to develop
economic engines with each of
these lawyers
Law firms' interest in teach-
ing associates "soft skills" such
as etiquette, proper attire and
how to make casual conversa-
tion began about 10 years ago,
Leipold said.
But there has been much more
emphasis on these skills in the last
few years, with law firms across
the country either hiring manage-
ment-level people to be directors
of in-house lawyer professional
development or using consultants
"Most of these associates
are 25 years old and have never
worked in a job like this said
Susan Bonnell, director, training
and development at Armstrong
Teasdale LLP. "Often, you have
associates who worked really
hard in law school, but they've
never worked in the professional
world.
Board of Governors
chair is special guest
ZACK HILL
STAFF WRITER
The ECU Board of Trustees
gathered in the Mendenhall Multi-
Purpose room on Friday, Oct. 6
to discuss issues pertaining to the
university and to welcome Jim
Phillips, chairman of the North
Carolina Board of Governors.
After convening for roll call,
the trustees voted to go into
closed session to discuss sev-
eral legal matters. The trust-
ees remained in the closed ses-
sion for just over two hours.
Upon reconvening, Chan-
cellor Ballard welcomed the
board members and extended
a special welcome to Phillips.
Ballard mentioned the great
strides the university has been
making in the area of research,
saying, "We will generate over $40
million in funded research thisyear
Strategic planning was at
the heart of Stephen Showfe-
ty's, chairman of the ECU
Board of Trustees, remarks.
"Our commitment to the
board and the entire commu-
nity is the only purpose of stra-
tegic planning. It is to have a
useful plan to identify priorities
and put our resources where are
priorities are said Showfety.
One of the highlights of the
meeting was the discussion of
the ECU Strategic Framework.
There are five keys to the frame-
work which is designed to provide
goals that the university has set
for over the next several years.
The "21st Century Educa-
tion" aspect deals with ECU's
transition into its second cen-
tury as an education institute.
"Every undergraduate is grad-
uating with the skills to be suc-
cessful Showfetysaid. "We've
always been good at that, we are
good at that, and we're improving
The second aspect is
titled, "A Region's Health
it looks at the school's grow-
ing medical components.
"We have a first class aca-
demic and health center with
three colleges, and we hope a
fourth coming soon. Most impor-
tantly, those health sciences are
devoted to the needs of North
Carolina and the under served
areas of the state Showfety said,
"Arts in Lives" makes up
the third component of the
plan and "has to do with our
world class visual and per-
forming arts said Showfety.
"This is not only about cul-
ture and the quality of lives, but
also about the economic develop-
ment Pitt County and Greenville
needs to be a center or cultural
affairs not just for the state but
the entire eastern seaboard
Showfety and the board
also hope that ECU can become
the "Leadership University
another section of the framework.
"We expect every one
of our students to be tomor-
row's leaders Showfety said.
The final branch of the frame-
work is "Prosperity in North
Carolina which reaches students
through distance education and
other methods of regional contact.
The Board of Trustees stated a goal
in a document titled, "Framework
Connection to UNC-GA Priori-
ties" to "grow external funding for
research to $100 million per year
The other highlight of the
meeting was the speech by Jim
Phillips, chair of the North
Carolina Board of Governors.
Phillips praised the lead-
ership not only at ECU,
but on the state level as well.
"There are issues on the table
now that haven't been before
said Phillips. "There's a willing-
ness to look at new ways of doing
things that need to be discussed.
It has reinvigorated the staff
and the board, and has made a
difference with the chancellors
working as a team. There's a
real sense that our leaders on the
campuses are working together
for the future of North Carolina
Phillips explained his motives
for seeking the chair position on
the Board of Governors, saying,
"The reason I ran for chair of this
board is that I wasn't confident that

Owners of nursing home
where 35 died to be arraigned
(AP) The owners of St.
Rita's Nursing Home,
where 35 people died in
the flooding that followed
Hurricane Katrina, were sched-
uled to be arraigned Wednesday
on charges of negligent
homicide and cruelty to the infirm.
Although state Attorney
General Charles Foti had Sal-
vador Mangano and his wife,
Mabel Mangano, booked with
negligent homicide about two weeks
after the Aug. 29, 2005 storm, the
couple was only charged late
last month because a grand
jury could not convene before
that in the flooded parish.
Their attorney, James
Cobb, has said that the nursing
home never flooded before Katrina
and the Manganos worried
that an evacuation would kill
some of their elderly patients.
The judge has imposed a
gag order on the couple and
attorneys in the case.

Jack Nicholson is considering a

marketing "day-glo" dildos.
The actor donned a fake
penis for a three-in-a-bed romp

much he's encouraging viewers
to follow suit by buying their
own strap-on.
Speaking at the New York
premiere of the Martin Scors-
ese film on Tuesday, Nicholson
said, "I'm planning to market them

Although the raunchy screen
was eventually cut from the
movie, Nicholson's dildo features

Favoritism of
"The Law"
Personal preferences affect police judgment
RYAN COBEY
OPINION WRITER
"Sir, do you know how fast you were going?"
Those words were spoken twice to me since I was
granted my first taste of true freedom at the age of
sixteen. There are few things that truly startle me, but
the sight of blue lights illuminating my rear-view mirror
is almost terrifying, especially when I know I'm doing
something wrong.
I was pulled over for going 15 and 12 over the
speed limits respectively. In fact, in one of those
cases I was rushing to see a very sick family member
at the hospital. Even after explaining myself to
the officer, I received tickets on both occasions.
On the other hand, a friend of mine was pulled over
for going 85 in a 65 mile per hour zone this summer.
That same friend, in less than a month's time, was pulled
over for going 55 in a 35 mile per hour zone. After crying
and pouting for a few minutes, she was amazingly given E
just warnings on both occasions, and drove home with "
no violations or tickets under her record.
In a nation where we are all supposed to be "inno-
cent until proven guilty why is it that good looks and
charisma make some of us "innocent even when guilty?"
Perhaps you are one of these people who find it
very easy to "talk" themselves out of a ticket - and
by talking I mean pouting and throwing a tantrum
until the cop decides to give up and walk away.
But even if you are blessed with the beauty and the
charm to slither out of these situations, I'm sure
your conscience has gotten the better of you and
you've asked yourself "I wonder why he let me go?"
A police officer's job is to uphold the law. It is their
duty to make sure nobody is violating any legal issues,
and punish them if they are. In my opinion, law enforce-
ment is one of the most important jobs in our society
because it is a requirement to be as fair and objective as
possible. Unfortunately, we see warnings given to some
people for going 20 miles per hour over the speed limit,
and tickets given to others for going ten over. Where is
the objectivity in that?
The sad truth is that since the majority of police
officers are males, they're going to think like males. I
know of women who were actually bribed to give cops
their phone numbers in exchange for a simple warning
instead of a ticket. What these officers don't realize,
however, is that because this woman did not receive the
proper punishment for going 30 miles over the speed
limit, she's going to assume it is all right to speed in
the future. After all, if crying and flashing a little skin
worked one time, it can work again, right?
Perhaps next time, instead of being pulled over and
given another warning, she will have wrapped her car
around a tree. Or, even worse, spun out of control and
took a few others with her.
Let's face it, our state troopers and even city police
can be discriminatory and sexist. It is important, as a
cop, to be able to stand your ground when the tears
begin to flow, but more and more we are seeing grown
men of justice give in to the pitiful pouting of a young
woman. Frankly, it worries me greatly to know that the
next person a cop lets go with a warning for driving
at an obnoxious speed could theoretically be the same
person that totals my car.
Perhaps they should focus more on the just-
ness of our legal system at police academies instead
of attempting to perfect that arrogant strut every
officer seems to have as they walk to your window.
JUST ASK JANE
Need advice? Want answers? Just ask Jane.
Dear Jane,
My roommate's girlfriend practically lives in
our apartment. She's a nice girl, but it's as though
she forgot she has her own home. Her dog is
even living with us now! My roommate doesn't
see what the problem is, but something has to
change soon or I'm gonna go crazy!
Signed,
Frustrated Bill Payer
Dear Frustrated Bill Payer,
Your frustration is certainly understand-
able! It sounds as if, slowly, perhaps her clothes,
hairbrush and a few other things may have found
their way into the boyfriend s room, then her
physical self, and now her pet, without there
having been a talk about whether or not this
woukfbe acceptable to you andor any other
roommates that this may concern.
First of all, you may want to speak to the
roommate again. It sounds as if you may have
brought this up and gotten the brush-ofF. If you
haven't broached the subject at all, now is the
time. Don't wait another day to tell him how you
feel about his lady friend being there so much.
The longer you wait, the more comfortable they
are going to be with the new living situation and
the worse its going to be on you when you finally
do get absolutely fed up and call for a change.
It is equally your apartment and you have the
right to be satisfied being there, as does he. Tell
him how you feel, but be specific. For instance:
You don't feel as though you can sit around in
your boxers and watch the game because she's
always in and out of the apartment. Tell him:
"Dude, I need to be able to come home and chill
out and weardo whatever I want and lately I
haven't been able to because (insert name here)
is here more than she's at her own home. It's
been bothering me and I'd like you to tell her
to restrict her time here to (insert time frames
you're comfortable with) Also, the dog being
present is an important point, especially if you
didn't already have one there.
The bottom line is, this is the place you
call home, and if you can't lay your head there
comfortably, you've got a problem. I suggest a
direct approach to the roommate, away from the
girlfriend (I'm willing to bet it would really hurt
her feelings.) Reiterate that she is a "nice girl but
that this is your home and her name is not on the
lease. Tell him you'd like to see her around, just
not nearly as much, and give him a time frame
to suggest to her sans Spot.
PIRATE RANTS
Seriously, the guy my ex is talking
to drives me insane. Is he emo or is
he stupid? Hello? If you like her, do
something about it. If not, let me have
her back. I feel like I'm waiting for
nothing to happen so I can say "I told
you so I love you baby girl.
I wanted the cooler weather to set
in until today when I saw a brunette
wearing booty shorts that had the
most delicious butt I've ever seen.
Bring on the heat wave!
Dear ITCS, there's an interesting
technology called single sign-on. I
should not have to authenticate four
times with a personal P.C. to get on
taho, go to Blackboard, Onestop and
Piratemail.LDAPservers work wonders.
ECU Biomechanics Rules!
I don't see the purpose of having a
Black Student Union and an NAACP.
One defeats the purpose of the other,
and by the way, I am a black student!
To the individual that continues to set
fires Haven't you ever heard "If you
play with fire you're bound to get burnt?"
I am in the University Manor computer
lab trying to write a geology paper and
you come in with your freaking big
mouth talking as loud as you possibly
can on your cell phone so that people
might thing you're cool. News flash:
You're not. So shut up, get off
MySpace, and go away so I can finish
writing my paper! Have some stinking
consideration for other people, geeze!
Please fix the air conditioning in my
room! Maintenance has come out
four times already and it still hasn't
worked since I moved in!
If it weren't for the teaching career,
ECU wouldn't even be here! How
dare you say it is a dead-end job?
Get a clue, and don't be jealous, that
shade of green doesn't look good on
anyone.
Thanks to the guys in Croatan watching
the Price is Right on Tuesday and
Thursday! You make my day!
To the person who wrote the rant
about Oscar Meyer that ended up in
the middle of everyone's complaining:
Thank you! That seriously made my day!
I compared a picture of my dog to
a picture of rapper Mike Jones last
night. Ah, the similarities are amazing.
It's kind of funny. I am more appalled
at Greek life, not because of Mr.
Cobey's article last Thursday, but
because of the stupid comments
fraternities gave in response to it!
I wonder about the process for hiring
ECU professorsinstructors. There are
some professorsinstructors currently
providing instruction here at ECU
who have a difficult time articulating
themselves so that students are able
to accurately understand them. My
concern is what kind of education
students will receive from this lack
of quality instruction, and what is
ECU doing about it, or does ECU
even care? From a concerned student
enrolled in a course with one of these
non-articulating professors.
I know how to eliminate the downtown
discrimination problem, don't go
Solved it fast huh?
To the two girls who were calling
me lazy and such because I drive to
the commuter lot, and then bike to
campus (instead of biking from home
I guess?) Maybe I don't live close
enough to bike from home, but at
least I'm getting some exercise biking
to class, unlike you who waddles
your fat butt to the bus everyday.
Departments are in need of work-
study students, but ECU didn't give
out work-study to a lot of people,
particularly people who had it last
year. Now I have no money. Idiots.

Just when I thought I was
understanding girls I go to the REC
center and see over half of them
wearing makeup. Why?
If someone catches something on
fire in the building I'm having class
in I would appreciate it if you would
evacuate us. You know, pull an alarm
or something. You would be surprised
how quickly a fire can spread.
The person who said that Pirate Rants
is not a dating service makes a good
point. There should be one though:
Pirate Love. So you can post, "To the
guy that sits behind me in blah-blah
who always blah-blah: You're hot!
What's up? Can I get some of that?"
But I guess that's the coward's way.
I eat off campus more than I eat on
campus now. So, I am eating better food
at a cheaper rate. Gotta love WalMart!
To the ranter that down talked
teachers: I love the fact that my
job will not only reward me with
money, but with a satisfaction in
life. I will be satisfied when I go to
sleep every night, because I would
have affected someone's life for the
better. Maybe you consider that to
be a dead-end job, but I consider it
to be an extremely satisfying career!
Get off it!
Instead of blaming your failing grades
on your foreign professors, why don't
you just get a tutor or try learning it
from the textbook?
Is it bad that I drink beer out of my
ECU Crime Prevention cup?
I can't believe TEC would bash
fraternities in the way they did just
because you don't agree with our way
of life! Yeah we drink, and we like girls!
Is that not American? What's next? Are
you gonna bash Christians because
they read the bible and go to church?
Does your chain hang low?
Why did I wait until the last weekend to
read over 200 pages for a history test?
Chivalry is not dead. Me and a friend
of mine still uphold it and get along
great with the girls.
If you're gonna park over by Fourth
and Fifth Streets for class, at least be
courteous and park in the lines.
Would you like some lemon for that
Haterade?
Not all sorority girls date frat guys. I
am in a sorority and I haven't found
a frat guy worth dating. In fact, I
totally go against the stereotype. I
would rather meet a guy at the library
instead of at a social.
I just saw a girl run into a tree! All I
have to say about that is Hahaha!
So how can I be the "perfect girl" if you
still just want to be friends? I don't get it.
I agree, the pink soap in the bathroom
sucks plus I'm not really sure if it
even cleans your hands.
To the idiot who thinks that every
organization on campus is either
black or white: You really must 6e
blind. Perhaps you should take some
time to reexamine the student body
or consult your student activities
bulletin. Why don't you attend a
SALSA meeting or an ASA meeting
and tell me what you see. Ah, ding!
Hispanics and Asians, now aren't
you smart?
Ever wonder why the rants are so
popular? I'd say they fit the short
attention span of most students.
My boyfriend and I have been together
for almost two years, and we don't
sleep together. This doesn't mean we
don't love each other, it just means
we have more self-control than 90
percent of the population.
Why do people hate on ghetto girls?
I don't look ghetto but I'm totally
ghetto inside. And why have people
been laughing at my friend this week
for wearing her herringbone? Don't
act like you don't have one or didn't
wear one in middle school.
Guys who runran cross-country have
great abs.
I would just like to thank all the
fabulous workers in West Dining Hall.
They make the dining experience a
little better.
Why are all the doors shut in the
hallways of Bate?
How do you tell your roommate that
you lived with last year and are living
with this year that you don't want to
get an apartment with them next year?
To the loudmouth UNC fan, you
proved why so many people hate UNC
because they are ignorant snobs. At
least Duke fans pull for ECU too and
don't dis this school.
Whoever set the fires in Brewster
and Joyner East, what an idiot! You
could have at least had a plan to
strategically get everyone out of a
class! You must need a hug.
Attendance policies: What is the
point? If I choose to stay in my bed
for an hour longer and miss a class,
should anyone other than myself
care? I say no.
Girls that like metal are hot!
Students: Stay for the football game
Saturday! This one is bigger than
any game we have played so far. If
we can beat Tulsa who blew us out
last year, our bowl game picture
goes from distant to likely! Show
up and be loud when the reigning
conference champions and Liberty
Bowl Champions come to Greenville!
Damnit! I hate tape!
I just turned 20, but I feel like I am 14.
Why couldn't the Stanley Cup have
come to campus on a Tuesday so we
could take it to mug night?
My roommate sits in the room all day.
Get a life. Don't you have anything to
do all day besides study?
I think that my accounting professor
is an android. She really reminds me
of Data from Star Trek.
If only there was a rulebook on girlguy
interaction. Maybe Jane could write it.
Has anyone heard about the hyphy
movement that's making its way
through Greenville?
I figured it out I never liked you for
you. I liked you because you liked me.
Ode to Skip Holtz: Skip, you are, our
leader for sure. With you, football is
no longer a bore. Please don't ever go
away. But one more thing I must ask
of you, crush the wolfpuppies of N.C
State and make thern boohoo!
Does anyone else ever read the pirate
rants and get paranoid because you
think some of them are about you?
Could someone please explain what is
so enticing about consuming alcohol
until your only memory of that night
are the pictures posted on Facebook?
I love "Grey's Anatomy" so much I
delay my going out on Thursday nights
to watch it and I am a guy.
Why do people tell me I'm tall? Don't
you think I've noticed?!
If you have a problem with me, don't
put my best friend in the middle of
our situation.

New fall shows finally
worth sitting through
JESSE PENCE
OPINIONS WRITER
I watch TV. I watch a lot of TV. I wouldn't
say it's more than any other college student
with a DVR may watch, but it's a substan-
tial amount. Previously it used to be that I
would just record each episode of "Law and
Order: SVU" because all shows were more
or less the same.
You had your crime shows- "Law and
Order "Law and Order: SVU "Law and
Order: Criminal Intent Then you got into
"America's most watched drama or whatever
CBS liked to call "CSI which brought spin-
offs from just about every city you can think
of- "CSI: Miami "CSI: New York I could
have sworn I saw CSI: Omaha once or twice.
Then you got into the medical shows
- "House "Grey's Anatomy plus the occa-
sional "ER sprinkled with a little "Chicago
Hope It's as if one guy wrote a show and
submitted it to every studio in Hollywood.
Unfortunately, they all bought it.
I was wonderfully surprised when I saw
some of the new shows for this fall. I person-
ally was glad to see Matthew Perry, Chan-
dler from "Friends back on TV in the new
NBC drama "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip
It's about the goings on in the studio of a
sketch comedy show not unlike NBC's "Sat-
urday Night Live I enjoyed the premiere,
but it wasn't quite what I was looking for.
Luckily for me, along came "30 Rock the
comedy equivalent to "Studio 60 It's writ-
ten and produced by Tina Fey, who wrote
for, and resurrected, "SNL The premiere is
Oct. 11 and it's one show my DVR is already
set to record.
Now to my personal new favorite of the
fall season
"Smith" is a show about a gang of high-end
robbers who will steal anything they are paid
to get. The elaborate means of theft and high
drama between lead character Bobby Stevens,
Ray Liotta and everyone else in the show
leads to one solid hour I can actually watch
without fast forwarding through any parts.
Now I am not saying that I don't still
enjoy "Law and Order I watch that, too, but
only on occasion. The returning shows this
fall have come up a little short for me thus
far. "Grey's Anatomy" seems to be the same
old thing. McDreamy is still having "beauti-
ful man" problems, too many women, and too
little time. Meanwhile, poor O'Malley can't
say, "I love you to his wonderful doting girl-
friend because he still loves Meredith Grey.
I've missed "House" this season but I
shouldn't even count FOX as being a real
player in the network television world. How-
ever, if a FOX network has to be mentioned
it may as well be FX. However, my favorite
show from the past three years, "NipTuck"
has become too weird and out there even for
me. Everything that could be messed up,
slept with, or organ harvested, has been. Did
I mention it is also a "doctor" show?
There are many other shows still on
from past seasons, and of course new shows
I failed to mention, and if none of the new
shows do it for you, and you're just bored
with the same old drama on network TV,
well then, I guess you could always watch
"Dancing with the Stars
Letters To The Editor
I choose not to participate in the debates
between the Greeks and non-Greeks on-
campus. I can choose no side in this "conflict"
that plays itself out within the pages of the
East Carolinian. I cannot choose a side for a
variety of reasons. I know people that are in
the Greek community that I get along with,
some I'm even friends with, and I am friends
with some of those that stand opposite of the
fraternities and sororities. However, the main
reason I choose not to get involved with this
issue is that it's not realty an issue at all.
Through the Pirate Rants the student body
has created a conflict that appears to have inter-
national implications. However, we have become
so self-involved with our pathetic social differ-
ences that we have come to ignore real world
issues such as the events unfolding in Africa.
In Darfur, Sudan, there have Deen over
400,000 people murdered and over two million
forcibly removed from their homes within the
last three years. This does not even take into
account that the average "Janjaweed" soldier
commits rape 10 times per day.Yet, most of the
people in our country have no idea of die situa-
tion occurring in Sudan. But, I guess the choice
of fraternity or not is much more important
and can have a much more global impact than
the deaths and rape of thousands of people.

Horoscopes:
Mm
You can listen to everybody,
but you shouldn't believe them
all. Just because you're honest
and trustworthy doesn't mean
everyone is.
Taurus
Figure out what you want to
accomplish. Pick an exciting
goal, one that's slightly beyond
your present ability to reach.
But don't get wild; take it one
step at a time.
Gemini
You like to go along with what
other people want. Every once in
a while, however, you have to do
what works for you. Like now.
Cancer
Don't make the mistake of
thinking your input isn't needed.
Without your contribution, the
whole scheme will fall through.
If you don't let your ideas be
known, the whole thing could
fall apart and hurt people you
care about.
in
You're more of a leader than a
follower. Remember that now.
Listen to all the advice but make
your decision on your own.
Virio
New complications arise, causing
delays and confusion. You can fix
the problem fast. This is why you
get the big bucks.
Libra
You want to jump the fence, to
see what's on the other side.
Restrain yourself, it could be
a pen for something large and
mean. You know what they say:
The grass isn't always greener on
the other side.
Scorpio
Figure out which of the other
people's goals match yours.
Instead of an argument, you can
have a working team.
Sagittarius
Stay calm, if at all possible. Let
somebody else represent your
position to those who need to
be convinced. Be confident, and
you'll ride out this storm.
Capricorn
Speculation is running rampant,
because nobody knows exactly
what will happen. You're trying
something different, so it's
perfectly natural. But be careful,
you don't want to get in over your
head and let everyone tell you "I
told you so
Aquarius
It's OK if you haven't discovered
all of the answers by now. It's
more likely that new questions
have been raised. Keep up the
investigation.
Pisces
Controversy breaks out, as the
group tries to decide what's
important and what's not. Tell
them if they all pitch in, they can
have it all. It is time for you to be
appreciated.

Breast Cancer awareness month
Informing women all over
the nation about how to
detect breast cancer
STACY DAIL
STAFF WRITER
If you've gone anywhere this
month, it is very likely that you've
seen everyday items, such as
clothes, jewelry and even kitchen
mixers, embeilished with little
pink ribbons.
This new array of pink is
because October is National Breast
Cancer Awareness month, and pro-
ceeds from these products help to
fund campaigns hoping to inform
women about early detection of
breast cancer.
This month has been nationally
recognized by many organizations,
and has encouraged them to orga-
nize fund-raisers and other activi-
ties to help raise money to fight,
detect, treat and cure this cancer
that is the second leading cause
of cancer death among women.
In 1960, one out of every 20
women was diagnosed with breast
cancer during their lifetime. That
ratio has shockingly taken a turn
for the worse compared to today,
where one out of seven develop this
deadly disease.
Although breast cancer aware-
ness is encouraged throughout the
year, October is used to step it up
a notch and really educate women
about breast cancer, its symptoms
and how to help prevent it.
Many clinics offer free screen-
ings during the month, and women
of all ages are encouraged to take
advantage of the opportunity.
National Breast Cancer Aware-
ness Month was first started in
1985, and took place only during
the first week of October.
Throughout the week, mem-
bers from the American Academy
of Family Physicians and Cancer
Care, Inc. gave out brochures,
Pink ribbon items to raise money for breast cancer can be purchased year-round but October is a great time to buy.
talked to news reporters and even
went to the U.S. Congressional
committee to discuss the serious
need for easy access to mammo-
grams.
This got the attention of then
first lady Betty Ford, who was
a breast cancer survivor. She
teamed up with her daughter
Susan to talk on national televi-
sion about the importance of breast
cancer screening. Their appear-
ance affected many people, and
soon public officials, community
leaders and the media, as well as
everyday people, started to show
interest in the cause.
That interest has continued
to grow, and this program has
continued to make more and more
of an impact in the lives of women.
This year NCBAM wants to focus
on getting women to really take
control of their breast health and
to make sure that they are educated
about how to give themselves reg-
ular self-breast exams, in addition
to annual mammograms.
Our community is doing many
things to support NCBAM, but
students are always encouraged
to get involved and do more. Stu-
dents who are interested in help-
ing women become more aware of
ways to detect breast cancer and
those who want to help friends and
family who are battling the disease
can visit ncbam.com.
During this month, remember
not only the survivors and fight-
ers ofbreast cancer, but also their
friends and family who continue
to give them love and support and
maybe even a sense of hope for
the future.

thought People.com text messages
or PerezHilton.com were the bee's

Four friends in Kansas City,

Like sports fantasy games,
TABFL has compiled an extensive

The stats are gathered each week,

Based on these weekly stats,
TABFL members rank, draft and

When walking into the
Dowdy-Ficklen stadium for a

rumble with the energy of the

of course, the marching band
is there to supply music and
entertainment. As the dominant
spirit organization on campus,
the marching band performs

tality management major, is a
member of the ECU marching
band's Color Guard.
EC: What made you decide to be
part of the marching band?
Winston: It's a blast. Per-
forming gives you such a rush
sometimes. I have also met so
many friends through it.
EC: What do you like most about
the Color Guard?
Winston: Everyone sees if you
don't do the work. So I guess
Color Guard pushes me to try
harder, and because of it, per-
forming is so much more fun. I
can be proud of the work I have
done.
EC: How do you feel being a
male among a majority of female
peers in the Color Guard?
Winston: There are three other
guys, and the girls love us.
There's not really any difference
in the way we're treated, it is just
easier to spot us out on the field
than the girls. So basically we

have to strive to be better, so we
don't stand out as much.
EC: Is it a lot of effort to remem-
ber the shows each week?
Winston: It really depends on
the show and how much time we
have. It's very difficult to cram
in work in a short period of time.
You have to keep pushing to get
it memorized, so it leaves hardly
any time to clean it up.
EC: How often does the march-
ing band practice?
Winston: Every Monday,
Wednesday and Friday from
4-6 p.m. and before games on
Saturday, we rehearse for about
an hour before marching up to
the stadium for the game.
EC: Do you think there is a
band following just as much as
there is for the football team and
cheerleaders?
Winston: Actually, I do. Every-
one on that field has friends,
and those friends love to see
their friends perform. To my
surprise, after the first home

Scores Pool Hall & Bar
A quality place to hang out in
Greenville
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
I recently went downtown in the pursuit of a good
time. I was met with long lines and an endless number
of shady people in the few places I went. This was when
I decided to go to Scores Pool Hall and Bar.
Not many people were there, which made the
place seem kind of empty given the size of the bar. An
extremely friendly female bartender greeted me and
proceeded to tell me about their drink specials and
pool table rates.
I understand this is her job, but she did this without
me asking her to, and she did it with a genuine smile.
I began to notice that the place had changed quite a
bit since the last time I was there.
I was also greeted by the bar owner, Mark Soko-
lovic, to whom I began talking about how much the
place had changed.
"This isn't the same place the pool tables, tables
and seats, drink rails and even the bathrooms are new
and improved said Sokolovic.
He was right, everything is new. This is mainly
due to the management change because he recently
bought the pool hall and decided to go in a new
direction with the place. That direction is to have a
safe, clean and friendly atmosphere.
That personable and intimate feel to the bar must
be a result of Sokolovic and his wife's personalities.
Sokolovic, a native of Pittsburgh, tells me that deal-
ing with people respectfully can resolve many of the
problems encountered by businesses.
Some of the more impressive things about this
bar are NFL ticket playings every single game, some
of the cleanest bathrooms I have seen downtown,
eight-foot projection screens, live music, free food
and beverages every third Wednesday for two hours
open to members only and the friendliest environ-
ment downtown by far.

Sokolovic tells me that they

EC: Do you think the marching

You decide who is on or off

of caution: Celebrities lose points

While the new season did

Greenville has quickly
become haven for pro
skaters, bikers
BENJAMIN LLOYD
STAFf WRITER
New York is famous for its
pizza, Chicago has its improv and
Greenville is known for its BMX
riding. X Games superstars Dave
Mirra and Ryan Nyquist live and
ride in Greenville alongside Ryan
Guettler, Allan Cooke, Josh Har-
rington, Scott Wirch, Mike Laird
and Alistair Whitton.
With the superstars practicing
street and vert tricks, many ECU
students flock to learn and watch.
"It seems to be some sort of
domino effect, where one person
came here, then another, then
another said Terrell Gordy,
an ECU student and BMXer.
"At some point Greenville just
became the spot to go riding
ESPN commentators refer to
Greenville as Pro Town USA for
the BMX bikers.
The City of Greenv ille created
their own skate park with Jaycee
Park, which recently under-
went renovations to improve the
ramps, jumps and pipes.
Ryan Nyquist, an eight-time X
Games medalist has his own riding
warehouse, named The Unit.
Dave Mirra, who was unable
to compete in this year's X Games
due to a lacerated liver suffered
in practice, also has his own
warehouse, but the location is
in Winterville. The warehouses
provide an opportunity to hone
new tricks in a private environ-
ment without fanfare or much
publicity.
Mirra, who has an X Games
record 20 medals, was recently
featured on a milk advertisement
on Evans St. He likes riding on
ECU's campus so much that he
featured a replica of Sonic Plaza
on a recent BMX video game.
In the game's sequel bearing his
name, the player can ride around
Cireenville streets, ride through
a University, and even ride in
people's back yards.
When Cireenville started to
be the place to come ride, the best
spots were in people's backyards,
but the city of Greenville made
a law to that no one could have
ramps in their yards anymore.
As nice as it is to have pro-
fessional riders like Mirra and
Nyquist, the sport's future relies
on its youth. Marcus Tooker
is a 20 year-old ECU student
from Massachusetts who when
decided to attend ECU because
of Greenville's reputation for
BMX riding. Tooker, who has
been riding for nearly a decade,
has recently been going to com-
petitions like the Mountain Dew
Sports Tour where he rides in the
street competition.
"I feel like traveling is huge
said Tooker. "Biking has opened
up my life. It's so easy to make
friends. My friend and I drove-
cross country staying on people's
couches that we had just met that
day because of riding
looker's favorite trick is the
360-degree tail whip to bar spin,
but he can also pull off a back
flip and tail whip. He learned
the tricks at Nyquist's The Unit,
which has a foam pit to try big
tricks into before attempting
them on concrete.
Another ECU student that
rides is Terrell Gordy, who's been
riding for his whole life. Gordy
refers to riding as his stress
release. His influences for riding
are his friends, who are always
pushing him to do a trick and do
it better than last time, and the
professionals that live around
Greenville.
"Dave and Ryan, they're
really cool guys, they're just
normal guys trying to have fun
said Gordy of the laid-back Mirra
and Nyquist.
Riding with X Games stars
has turned out to be an once-in-
a-lifetime experience for impres-
sionable Cireenville kids. Teen-
agers and kids swap tricks with
the pros everyday. Not only do
they see their idols on TV, but

RON CLEMENTS
SENIOR WRITER
following an 8-20 season in
his first year at the helm of the
ECU basketball program, Ricky
Stokes parted ways with eight
of the 12 players on the 2005
roster. With only four returning
players, Stokes said his second
season as the head coach of the
Pirates will come with a lot of
'accelerated teaching
"We do have four guys
back that played a lot of
basketball for us said Stokes, "and a lot
of new faces, a new energy, so to seak
Jeremy Ingram, Courtney
Captain, J.H. Rose alumnus Taylor
Gagnon and all-freshmen Confer-
ence USA selection Sam Hinnant
all return to lead a young Pirates
squad with seven freshmen.
"It's been a lot of teaching
Stokes said of the summer work-
outs. "We have not done a lot of
5-on-5. That will be when we
start here this Eriday. They will
have an opportunity, but I've been
impressed with all the new faces.
Our core freshmen are playing
extremely well and are excited to
be here, and I think they'll add a
lot to our team
5 The Pirates begin practice
Eriday, with walk-on tryouts to
,be held a week from Thursday.
Stokes is hoping the new faces will
help the basketball program "take
a step forward
The seven freshmen include
6-foot-10 Justin Ramsey and
former Apex track star James
Dillard. Stokes said Dillard's
athleticism has impressed him
the most.
"He's also a basketball player
that happened to play track said
Stokes. "One thing that he pro-
vides is that size, which we didn't
have a lot of guys in that range.
We think he can use his athletic
ability as a defender against the
bigger guards
Corey Rouse graduated and
Mike Castro has used up his eli-
gibility. Those were the only two
seniors on last year's squad. The
other six decided to transfer to
other schools, a decision Stokes
said was not made by him.
It was an individual deci-
sion by each player at the end of
the year Stokes said, who was
hired by Terry Holland from
South Carolina in 2005. "We were
trying to have the best fit for each
individual person and in a lot of
different instances, a lot of kids
wanted to play in different places.
Whether it's more minutes or not
on board with the commitment
that we're looking for, it was not
my decision. It was a decision that
we have at the end of the year with
each individual to sit down and see
what's best for them
The Pirates have just one
senior and Stokes will look to the
aptly named Captain, and the other
returnees, to provide leadership to
the young team.
"I expect all the four return-
ing guys to share the load as far
as responsibility said Stokes.
"Courtney Captain has played at
some point guard position, but
hopefully we'll let him play the
off-guard, which I think he's the
most comfortable playing
Darrell Jenkins, one of two
junior transfers, is the front-runner
to play the point, but the Pirates
still don't have a true point guard.
"Darrell Jenkins has played
point guard said Stokes. "He's
a junior college transfer from
Southern Idaho that has played
the position. Naturally, he's the
guy who can push the basketball.
I think he makes the game easy,
makes the easy play and really
distributes the basketball
Stokes added that the job is
not Jenkins' yet with Captain
and a couple of others likely to
get looks.
"Brandon Evans will have an
opportunity to play there said
Stokes "He's a freshman, and also
Cory Earmer, a junior college guy
at Tallahassee who could slide
over to that
Ingram, a junior from Kinston, is
recovering from his fourth knee sur-
gery, and Stokes said he is counting
on a full recovery and a big season
from the Wake Forest transfer.
"1 think this rehab is old hat for
him, but we're gonna look forward
to his leadership said Stokes.
"He joined us midyear in 2005,
so he has a full year of practice

(AP) N.C. State's
depleted frontcourt just got a
little thinner.
Andrew Brackman, a 6-
foot-10 junior who is a pitcher
for the baseball team, said
Tuesday he plans to sit out the
basketball season to focus on
baseball in hopes of improv-
ing his chances of being a high
draft pick next summer.
The announcement made
official what many had expected
for weeks and leaves the Wolf-
pack without one of its top
returning players on a front line
that lost Cedric Simmons to the
NBA draft.
"Playing professional base-
ball has been a big dream of
mine ever since I was a little
kid and that dream has a chance
of coming true in June Brack-
man said in a written statement.
"Because of that 1 feel that the
most important thing for me
is to be as prepared mentally
and physically as possible for
the draft
The news came during the
Wolfpack's annual preseason
media day, which was the
first for coach Sidney Lowe
since he was hired to lead his
alma mater in May. Brackman,
who did not attend the event,
issued his statement through
the university.
Brackman said he would
reconsider whether to play
basketball after the profes-
sional baseball draft in June,
though Lowe wouldn't rule out
Brackman playing basketball
this season.
"The door is always open
Lowe said. "1 wouldn't close it on
him. He's one of our kids. He's
part of our family. He's been on
the team before. I'm just not one
to close the door on family. He's
always welcome. The players feel
the same way
Last baseball season, Brack-
man was 1-3 with a 6.85 ERA
before a stress fracture in his left
hip ended his year. The injury
healed in time for Uim to pitch
in international competition for
Team USA. He was 4-0 in seven
starts with a 2.09 ERA in his
freshman year.
"I look at this basketball
season as a redshirt year for me
Brackman said. "My primary
focus will be on playing baseball
but 1 still consider myself part of
the basketball program
It's easy to understand why
Lowe would hold out hope for
Brackman to change his mind.
He averaged 7.6 points per game
while ranking second on the team
with 28 blocked shots for the
Wolfpack last year.
Brackman figured to see
significant minutes this season
after last year's 22-10 team
lost Simmons, who left school
after his sophomore season,
and fifth-year senior forward
llian Evtimov.
That leaves the Wolfpack with
one experienced frontcourt player:
6-8 sophomore Ben McCauley,
who averaged 2.1 points and 6.9
minutes in 27 games.
"I think the window might
still be cracked McCauley said.
"I think we all want to stay posi-
tive toward that idea. I talked to
Andrew many times during the
week. He still says he's confused
about it.
"He's got a really difficult
decision to make. I've told him
many times that whatever deci-
sion he makes, I'm behind him
100 percent
The other front line players
include 6-8 redshirt freshman
Brandon Costner, who played
just five games because of a
stress fracture in his leg, and
7-3, 245-pound freshman Bar-
tosz Lewandowski. The losses
could even force 6-7 swingman
Gavin Grant to spend time
inside, which could leave the
Wolfpack short-handed against
bigger teams.
Still, his teammates sound
OK with Brackman') decision
- even if they'd love to have him
on the court.
"We could definitely use him
for a couple of Duke and Carolina
games Grant said.

One out of five adults finds themselves as the
designated "caregiver" for a loved one who
can't manage alone. Recent findings reveal
that this role can be precarious - for both
parties. While trying to do it all, you can
become overwhelmed and risk your own
health. As this happens, the level of care
you're providing may also suffer. Fortunately,
there is help and relief out
there for both of you. Visit
