ECU graduate Neil Klinedinst to
raise money for children who are
in danger of being abducted by
the Lord's Resistance Army in
Uganda.
normal activities during the day
but flee for shelter at night to
avoid being abducted by
the LRA, being raped, being
vk,i,l 'e d or being forced
to kill others.
Over 200 participants were
registered to participate in
the walk by 10 a.m. The walk
and donations were voluntary,
according to Klinedinst.
The walk started at the
Town Commons on First
Street and concluded at the
Mendenhall Student Center brick-
yard.
Speakers for the event
included Senator Tony Moore,
Pastor George Okudi, 2003 Afri-
can male musician of the year
and Jamie Omundi.
"Having Okudi as a speaker
was especially effective because
he has been personally affected
by the LRA in his past
said Klinedinst.
Moore talked about respon-
sibility and service, and
Omundi talked about the work her
mother does with the orphanages in
northern Uganda.
Omundi explained how
thrilled she was toseepeoplethatwere
so far away helping to bring hope
to northern Uganda, according
to Klinedinst.
was organized to raise funds for the troubled children in areas of Africa.
The motto of the GuluWalk to participate and the amount of
Greenville was, "Are you a reason
for hope in Northern Uganda?"
Many individuals attempted to
be hope for the children in Uganda
by giving donations.
Klinedinst saidthatthey have
counted over $3,500 in dona-
tions and they are still receiving
notification that people would like
to donate.
The GuluWalk may become
an annual event; another is
already in the works for next year
with the plans of more music and
committee members, according
to Klinedinst.
Klinedinst seemed pleased at
the turnout of people who wanted
money raised.
"1 am proud of the indi-
viduals who participated as we
became a larger voice for these
children. They need, and deserve
people to stand ip for them and
it was great to see the ECU
community do just that Klin-
edinst said.

contribution to the cause or learn

ation, contact Neil Klinedinst at

BRIEFS
Immunity granted for younger
boy in Carroll County child killing
(AP) A Carroll County
judge has granted immunity to
a 14-year-old boy once thought
to be the killer of 8-year-old
Amy Yates.
"Anything he says in the
grand jury room, or any evidence
we derive from his testimony
cannot be used against him in
any prosecution later on down
the road District Attorney Pete
Skandalakis said Tuesday, adding
that the immunity request was
made by the Carroll County grand
jury last week.
Skandalakis called the case
one of the most complex of his 22
year career.
"You have different laws that
apply to each one of the suspects
who, in theory, have committed the
same crime he said.
"It gets more complex every
time you turn a corner, every time
you turn a page on this Investiga-
tive process. Sometimes instead of
getting more answers, you have
more questions
Amy Yates disappeared in
April 2004 while riding her bike
to a friend's home.
Her body was found hours later
in a gully.
The two confessions and
retractions have left the resi-
dents of the west Georgia town of
Carrollton wondering whether
Yates' killer will ever be known.
Happy birthday to you, you live
in a zoo: Gorilla twins turn 1
(AP) Cooper Lund's
rendition of "Happy Birthday"
included lines about living in a
zoo and looking like a monkey,
but the birthday boy and girl
weren't insulted.
Kali and Kazi just romped
about their African rain forest
playground, chewing on fruit and
swinging from vines. The twin
western lowland gorillas' first
birthday was celebrated at Zoo
Atlanta on Tuesday, a significant
hallmark in their young lives.
About 20 percent of gorillas
don't live through their first year,
especially as a pair.
Kali and Kazi are the only
gorilla twins in the world born
in captivity to be raised solely by
their mother.
They are one of just seven sets
of gorilla twins to be born in U.S.
zoos in the last 50 years.
Four of the sets died before
their first birthday; the other three
were raised by zookeepers.
"I love them so much he
squealed with delight as the
twins rode on their mother's
back "I want to give them a
great big kiss
Zoo Atlanta is also home to
the country's newest panda cub,
born Sept. G.
The baby girl won't be shown
in public until late December or
early January.
Paraplegic Fisherman Rescued
From River
(KMTR) A paraplegic
fisherman was rescued Wednesday
after his motorized wheelchair fell
into Pittsburgh's frigid Allegheny
River, rescuers said.
Tom Lippert, 45, of Spring
Garden, Pa whose legs are para-
lyzed, was fishing along a walkway
near the city's PNC Park shortly
before 10 a.m. when he fell into
the river, which flows through
downtown Pittsburgh.
As he clung to the shorewall,
Lippert's friend John Force, 44,
called for help.
A rescue boat arrived within
minutes, The Pittsburgh Post-
Gazette reported.
Lippert was taken to a hospital
suffering from exposure.
Man Robs Bank to Go to Jail
(KMTR) An Ohio man
who couldn't find work got him-
self arrested lor bank robbery so
he could go to jail until he was
eligible to collect Social
Security benefits.
Timothy Bowers, 62, told
Common Pleas Judge Angela
White he hasn't had steady work
for almost three years and the kind
of jobs available to him pay only
minimum wage, The Columbus
Dispatch reports.
Appearing in Franklin County
Common Pleas Court in Columbus
Thursday, Bowers pleaded guilty
to walking into the Fifth Third
Bank and handing a note to the
teller announcing a robbery.
After the teller put four $20
bills and a dye pack in an envelope,
Bowers walked over to the bank
guard and surrendered.
The county prosecutor's
office argued against locking
Bowers up after a court-ordered
psychological exam concluded he
was competent.
The Dispatch report said
White said, "I'm going to give
you your birthday present as
she ordered a 3-year sentence for
Bowers, who turns 83 at the end
of the month.
Supermodel Maggie Rizer
returns to Watertown, N.Y home-
town to film AIDS documentary
(AP) Supermodel Maggie
Rizer returned to her hometown
this week to begin working on an
AIDS documentary being directed
by Alexandra Kerry, the daughter
of U.S. Sen. John Kerry.
The film, titled "Maggie and
Me is being produced by AIDS
activist Suzanne Engo, whose
father is a former ambassador to
the United Nations from the Afri-
can country of Cameroon.
Kngo founded the New York
AIDS Film Festival, which was
launched at the U.N. in 2003.
The festival is committed to the
celebration of life and the use of
film and television as tools to fight
HIVAIDS.
A clip from the film will be
screened at the AIDS Film Fes-
tival in December in New York
City, where Rizer will be honored
for her work in increasing aware-
ness and support for those with the
disease, Narov said.
Rizer's father died of AIDS in
1992 at age 38.
Rizer, a 1996 Watertown High
School graduate, has appeared
on the covers of Mademoiselle,
Vogue, Harper's Bazaar and Allure
magazines.
Fugitive in sex slave case sur-
renders after 15 years
(AP) One of two brothers
accused of kidnapping two teen-
age prostitutes and keeping them
as sex slaves has surrendered to
authorities after 15 years as a
fugitive.
Police say Vance Roberts
turned himself in at the Wash-
ington County Jail after he and his
brother, Paul Jackson, skipped out
on their bail in 1991.
Roberts will go on trial next
week. 36-year-old Jackson remains
at large. Hillsboro Police say Rob-
erts, 52, won't reveal his brother's
whereabouts.
Roberts told police he and Jack-
son searched for young prostitutes,
kidnapped them, kept them in
chains and sexually assaulted them
at a house in Hillsboro.
In 1990, a girl got away. When
police searched the house, they
found photos of other girls in
bondage.

day handing out "Do Ask, Do
Tell" buttons in honor of National
Coming Out Day. The jab at the
established military policy was
meant to get students talking
about sexuality and acceptance,
Cook said.
But the campus wasn't always
so gay friendly.
Cook, who is a lesbian,
attended the school in the mid-
1980s, when many students
weren't so eager to come out
of the closet. Back then, the
campus' gaylesbian student
group wouldn't post the loca-
tions of any of its dances or other
events for fear of harassment, she
said. Instead, students had to call

for information.
As for students who
were involved in the school's
lone gay advocacy group,
many shied away from using
their full names, Cook said.
"There was a real risk in
having your identity found out,
having future employers find that
information she said.
"I was not involved with the
group back then. I hadn't really
accepted my identity myself, so
the idea of going and participat-
ing in a group like that was too

Bruce Steele, The Advocate

Timeline for student fee increase decision
Ready for cool weather?
Process that will
determine the increase
KIMBERLY BELLAMY
SENIOR WHITER
A forum will be held on
Thursday, Nov. f, in Hendrix
Theater at 5S( p.m. to allow the
student body to learn more about
the possible increase in student
fees for 2O0B-2OO7.
Present at the forum will be
Derek Pantiel, president of the
association of student govern-
ments, board of governors mem-
bers and the student president of
all Hi UNC campuses.
Also present at the forum will
be M. Cole Jones, student body
president, Chris Welch, student
body treasurer and Jon Massachi,
speaker of the congress for SGA.
The forum is completely open
to all of the student body. Mem-
bers of SGA strongly encourage
that students come to the forum to
voice their opinions and to learn
more about the reason for the
increase and the process in which
an increase is decided.
Students that would like to
speak out about the possible
increase can do so once tine is
yielded to them at the forum but
they will not be allowed to actu-
ally vote during the forum.
SGA's goal is to get the increase
at a minimum without cutting
funding for university needs.
The increase is proposed to be
8,8 percent or lower but without
the backing of the congress and
the student body, the percentage
may be higher.
Jones said, "We recognize
that in order tor this policy to be
effective, there is a need for strong
political support to increase
appropriations for the university.
If this support is not actualized,
the pressure on the chancellors to
supplement funding shortfalls
Student have numerous ways
of gathering more information
about how much money they may
have to spend in tuition and fees
next year.
In addition to the forum, M.
Cole Jones composed a letter
(which appears after this article)
to the student body that gives
his views and opinions about the
increase. That letter is published
below this article.
Jones seems to be in favor of
the increase and feels that it will
allow students and their families
to be better prepared for increases
in tuition and fees for subsequent
years.
This plan w ill allow for stu-
dents and their families to be able
to financially plan for increases
in educational costs, and send a
clear message to lawmakers that
they must fund unmet needs of the
university system said Jones.
Jones, Welch and Stephanie
Coleman, an accountant in financial
services, have been working vig-
orously on the student fee process.
A summary of the figures,
explanations, views and outcomes
will be provided to the student
body on Tuesday, Nov. 7 in the
East Carolinian.
A proposal will also be dis-
tributed to Jones from Coleman
of the different units that are
requesting or not requesting and
increase according to Jones.
From there, the Chancellor's
Executive Council will receive the
proposal and meet on Nov. 8.
The Chancellor's Executive
Council is made up of the vice
chancellors of each division and
the athletic director, according
to Jones.
The council will compose
their final proposal to be pre-
sented to the congress at cording
to Jones.
The proposal will be pre-
sented to congress on Nov. 13, at
5 p.m. The congress will have a
chance to express their concerns
and opinions and vote on the stu-
dent fee increase.
The congress will also have a
chance to vote on Nov. 6. The rec-
ommendation that congress make
will be presented to the Board of
Trustees for a vote on Dec. 14.
The Board of Governors will also
vote on the increase sometime
within the month of March.
The amount of votes that will

Allow me first to thank you for the opportunity
to share my perspective on the Tuition and Fees
Proposal students' perspective on the proposed
tuition policy plan. After careful consideration of
the recommended tuition policy, we feel that this
plan is the best solution for historically unpredict-
able tuition and fee rate increases. This plan will
allow for students and their families to be able to
financially plan for future increases in educational
costs, ana send a clear signal to lawmakers that
they must fund the unmet needs of the university
system. This plan also keeps necessary educa-
tional cost increases to a minimum for students
and their families, while still meeting the finan-
cial needs of our university system.
We recognize that in order for this policy to
be effective, there is a need for strong political
support to increase appropriations for the univer-
sity system. If this support is not actualized, the
pressure on chancellors to supplement funding
shortfalls will result in additional requests for
tuition increase exceptions. Despite tnis chal-
lenge, I know that through great leadership
and passionate advocacy this concern will never
become a reality.
University students throughout North Caro-
lina commend us for being a model student body
as we continue to work nard, create awareness
and deliberate over this important issue. I am
indebted to have the opportunity to provide an
active voice for the Students at East Carolina
University. Again, thank you for your undeniable
commitment in fighting to keep higher education
affordable for all students across the state.
Please plan to attend the Student Fee Forum
today, Thursday, Nov. 2 at 5:30 p.m. in Hendrix
Theater as we will provide further insight and
understanding on Campus Base Tuition and
Fees.
In Leadership & Service,

Subjective racism
A critique from another viewpoint
BRIDGET TODD
OPINION WRITER
Because it's such a complex issue, 1 tend to dislike
writing about race. Nevertheless, recently, I read an
opinion article by Stacy Dail about racism that I felt
compelled to respond to. Dail maintained that while
some racism takes the form of whites discriminating
against blacks, what happens more is blacks discrimi-
nating against whites.
She writes that while she's, "seen racism against
blacks to be true a few times she sees much more of the
reverse. She goes on to give several examples of her own
harsh brushes with racism - from being rudely chastised
for hugging her grandmother and not hugging a black
coworker, to watching a black classmate publicly scold a
white classmate for allegedly not wanting to sit next to
him and his black friends. While Dail is correct to point
out that blacks can be racist and that whites face racism,
she fails to address major flaws in her argument.
Is it any wonder that a white person might doubt
the existence and frequency of racism against minorities
and only "notice" racism that whites endure? I'm sure
that any person of color would probably tell you a very
different story about the regularity of racism against
minorities. The writer claimed that she was only "stat-
ing what she has observed This brings up the idea
that our individual experiences are not reality. Reality
is subjective and based on the individual. The reality
of racism is quite different for a black person than for
a white person. Thus, it's impossible to analyze racism
without recognizing that it's different for everybody.
I'm not saying racism against whites doesn't exist.
However, comparing the racism whites endure to the
racism blacks endure is insensitive and just reeks of
white social privilege. A rude black classmate scolds
a white girl and that's harsh racism? No one is beaten
by police officers because they are white. No one
is dragged behind a truck because they are white.
The article makes no distinction between degrees of
racism. While the events the author describes reflect a
type of racism, she fails to note that it's different and less
institutionalized that racism against blacks. White people
obviously face discrimination - but implying they face it
more than blacks, is inaccurate and diminishes the seri-
ousness of institutionalized racism faced by minorities.
The article went on to mention a recent episode of
"House" wherein a black patient was apprehensive about
taking his medicine because he feared the doctors were
testing it on blacks. The writer seems to dismiss this
as paranoia, but maybe if she knew that blacks were
the unknowing subjects of medical testing she would
understand. Medical staff sometimes purposefully
infected unknowing blacks with diseases to perform
laboratory tests. The Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment
being the largest reported incident. North Carolina
was one of the states leading the forced sterilization of
poor black women, a racist practice that endured until
the late 1970s. Given this history, the patient's fears are
more reasonable than the writer gives him credit for.
The article goes on to say that slavery is over and
"it's time to let go of the past Not an easy task when
countless blacks still face actual racism everyday. The
articles quotes the show "House writing that black
people "don't know the difference between racism and
everyone gets screwed According to the article's logic,
the thousands of disenfranchised blacks who were
denied their constitution-given right to vote in Florida
during the 2000 election should have just thought
to themselves, "well I guess everyone's bound to get
screwed over sooner or later, so let's just get over it
The article also maintains that its wrong that ECU
has a Black Student Union from which black students
benefit because this divides the races. Perhaps this is a
case of the writer simply not doing enough research.
Anyone of any race can and has joined to Black Student
Union since it's founding. The BSU performs numerous
service efforts, which benefit society as a whole. The
article asks why, since blacks "get their own student
union, should there not be one for the white students,
the Asians, Hispanics and any other race ECU has
Actually, that's exactly what already happens.
ECU boasts several different student organizations
for different cultural and racial groups. We have B-Glad
for gays, lesbians and their allies, the Arab Student
Union, the Asian Student Association, SALSA (Stu-
dent Association for Latino-Spanish Affairs) and East
Carolina Native American Organization. We have all
of these groups because, as any minority will probably
confirm, sometimes, larger blanket organizations like
the "normal Student Union as the author puts it, fail
to recognize the individual needs of individual groups.
Take another look at all the things these groups have
accomplished and tell them there is "no need for it
My biggest problem with this essay is more abstract.
The notion that someone needs to enlighten minorities of
the realities of racism is patronizing. I resent the thought
of someone taking on the task of telling black people what
their problems are, especially if they're not truly cogni-
zant of the nature of those problems in the first place.
JUST ASK JANE
Need advice? Want answers? Just ask Jane.
Dear Jane,
My roommate is suffering from depression and 1
have no idea how to help him. In brief, he has had a very
rough year romantically, financially and scholastically I
also strongly believe he suffers from some form of social
anxiety disorder. I have worried about him for a while,
but the symptoms fluctuate in severity, and when he
has a good week or two, it is easy to believe things will
get better. Recently, he told me he was depressed, and
jokingly scolded me for not noticing. He has also made
a few joking references to suicide. At first I just thought
he was a bum; he would sleep upwards of 14 hours a day
and seemed to only get up in order to eat and watch TV.
My own selfish annoyance at his behavior initially took
precedent over any concern, and still does to a large
degree today (it is hard to feel bad for someone who
is always too busy eating junk food and watching old
sitcoms to even clean up their own piles of filth). Due to
my personal nature, any advice I may offer comes off as
harsh or condescending (he has told me so in fact). With
all this in mind, what is the best way I can help?

Not everyone is Christian
ALEX LAROCCA
OPINION WRITER
I am a student here at ECU, I am also one of a minor-
ity. I am one of those people who do not practice any
religion. Why? Well that is my choice and it is personal.
Now when I say it is personal, I mean just that
because I am a United States citizen and one of my most
basic rights is that it does not matter what my religion,
or lack thereof, is. What is my point? We are supposed
to be attending a secular public school and yet this is
not practiced.
If it is my choice at the university and in this country
not to practice any religion, then why so much pressure
from Christian organizations on campus? They have
even perfected ways into getting people to go to their
meetings. Many pamphlets are handed out on campus
promising free food or pool but what they forget to
mention is that it is Christian, except for the tiny print
on the bottom.
One great technique was at Purple Haze. A stand set-
up said, "Free Pepsi for answering two questions I pro-
ceeded to go up the counter and was asked "Do you believe
you are going to heaven?" and "What is your personal
relationship with Jesus and the bible?" And even though
I answered rudely, the chap actually gave me the soda.
And of course, there is my favorite organization on
campus: Campus Crusade for Christ. "Crusade?" 1 said
the first I ever heard of them, "Crusade against what?"
Well I don't know and I am scared to ask. How can there
be a group called Crusade at a public university in the 21st
century in a secular and, supposedly, reasonable coun-
try? I mean you cannot even defend'such a title. Crusade
really just means one thing is most human beings minds.
Now, it could be stated that it isn't the university but
simply Christianity's normal actions as a whole or even
just the student population. Well I would buy that if it
weren't for a personal incident in which the administra-
tion obviously held a religious biased.
Last year a friend of mine, we will call him
Oppressed, and I were sitting on the porch of one of
the dorms. It so happened that on that day those little
green Gideon's Bibles had been passed out. In order to
be funny and defiant, Oppressed set the bible on fire in
his hand. It was daring and it lasted too long but the
point was out and the shock was well deserved.
Later that night Oppressed almost had to fight an
apparent Christian, and the situation led to his actions
having to be put into a report. It was assumed that
someone would call us for the details of what happened,
the aforementioned opponent would have been written
up and nothing else. A month or so later, Oppressed
discovers that he will be kicked out of campus living,
which meant he could not live on campus anywhere. He
has one option, which is to write an appeal. He-wrote
and they didn't respond until about two or three weeks
before Christmas break, which was when he had to be
out by. It took them a while and they responded with a
resounding rejection to his appeal.
The reason? He was placing the entire dorm at risk
by fire. When 1 think about it again it seems reasonable
to say that paper can set concrete on fire, but of course
to actually become so enlightened I would have to hold
the Bible in very high esteem.
This is a public school and a free country. Everyone
has the same rights no matter your religion. If this
country is said to be founded on Christian principles, I
still do not care, since written in the first amendment
of the Bill of Rights no religion should ever have to be
pressed on me or offend my rights as an American.
Rebels with a cause
RYAN COBEY
OPINION WRITER
We've all been there. We've all felt that need, that
desire to be just a little different from everyone else.
Perhaps your little rebellion from society came during
your early teens when your mother wouldn't let you go
see an 11:30 showing of Scream with your best friends.
You felt that rush of freedom when you unobtrusively
opened the front door and snuck out, defying the law
that kept you down.
Or perhaps some of you still think you're rebelling
from society. Your spiked hair, long chains, baggy pants
and independent attitude are all you need in life. You
walk about campus as if the world owes you so much,
yet you drive home every weekend in your brand new
Mustang convertible. You only listen to underground
bands, because people who listen to mainstream bands
like Green Day and Blink 188 are simply "posers" to you.
You don't care what the teacher in your world history
class has to say at all because you already know more
than he does. This world just isn't good enough for you,
and because of that, you will attempt to isolate yourself
from the stereotypical society of pop culture.
Take a look around you, folks. If maybe once you
would open your eyes to the world, you would see that
there are thousands upon thousands of other people at
our school who think and act just like you. Go ahead,
look up some myspace.com profiles and tell me how
many people besides you are writing suicidal poems and
posting them on their blogs.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems
that many people have become that which they were
rebelling against for so many years. They are, in
fact, the mainstream society of today whose thoughts
and feelings of independent isolationism are shared
by millions of young people around the country.
So, move over punks, and make way lor a new gen-
eration of rebellious individuals. They are few and far
between, but they are out there. They are the people
who take time out of their day to help an old man cross
the street, or give a little encouragement to someone
suffering from the stress of an upcoming exam. Some
of them are religious, but it's not necessarily a require-
ment for this particular rebellion. They don't wear
all black and they don't put five bottles of gel in their
hair just so they can stand out or make a statement.
These new rebels have a strange ability to put others
over themselves in specific situations. They listen to
music they like, instead of refusing to listen to something
simply because it's popular. On weekends, they might
even get up before one in the afternoon and volunteer
at the local soup kitchen or help landscape the yard of
a halfway house.
I'm proud to know just a few of these new rebels.
They are people I now consider my best friends because
they have changed the way I thought of the world and
in turn, made me a better person. They are rebels with
a cause, and a desire to actually reach out and befriend
others. I'm sorry to burst anyone's bubble, but if to start
truly rebelling against the norm, it is going to require
cleaning up your act.

brick-by-brick. You do it the

We've been pointing at a game
when we could win one on
defense, a low scoring game
because that brings a lot of
emotion and excitement. You
always feel like you have a
chance to win on Saturdays.
That's our job and we're con-
fident, but we're not satisfied.
We've got a long way to go and
there's danger on the horizon

coordinator
"This is a one game season.
When this season's over, we'll
look back and evaluate what
we've done, but to this point
we're a 4-4 football team. We
have not done anything special.
We can finish 4-8 or 8-4. All
we want to do right now is to
be 5-4 when this week's over.

I.Win the turnover battle:
UCF has struggled with turnovers this season. The Golden
Knights are 99th in turnover margin, nationally, with a
minus six and have 11 giveaways in their last three games
- all losses to Pittsburgh, Rice and Houston.
2.Mike Walker:
The Knights need to find their talented receiver and get the
ball in his hands as much as possible. Walker leads the team
and is fourth in the nation with 60 receptions. He torched
the Pirates for 110 yards and two touchdowns last season.
This year, Walker four of the team's 10 touchdown receptions
and over 43 percent of its receiving yards.
3.Pressure Pinkney:
ECU'S James Pinkney has been sacked less than every
quarterback in C-USA, with the exception of Tulsa's Paul
Smith. UCF's defense ranks 10 in the conference in sacks.
The Knights need to improve on that number to help out
a secondary giving up over 250 yards through the air per
game.Pinkney, Aundrae Allison and company.

straight win at UCF
RON CLEMENTS
SENIOR WRITER
Putting together back-to-back wins
for the first time this season, the ECU
football team will try to remain atop
Conference USA's East Division as it
travels to Central Florida on Saturday.
The Pirates (4-4,3-2 C-USA) will
take on a UCF team that has lost its
last three games by an average score
of 48-22. ECU head coach Skip Holtz
said the Golden Knights (2-6, 1-3 C-
USA) are a dangerous team, despite
their record.
"Their offense has been very
explosive said Holtz. "Central Florida
came out here and beat us 30-20
(last year). They also returned just
about everybody on the team from
a year ago. Our football team has
great respect for Central Florida and
understands the type of athletes that
they are playing with and the program
that they have. We just have to stay
focused on our task at hand right now
A season ago, the Golden
Knights spoiled ECU's homecom-
ing with their 30-20 win en route to
a berth in the C-USA Championship
game. While Holtz said spoiling
UCF's homecoming this season
as the incoming foe is not some-
thing he puts a lot
of thought
into, it is on the conscience of the
players. Junior receiver Phillip
Henry said it adds some "extra
motivation
"Any time you go up against
a team on the road, you gotta do
something to get yourself moti-
vated Henry said. "They came
here and spoiled it for us last year
and we felt like we could've won.
This year, we hope that it can be
a different story
The Knights are led again, on
offense, by quarterback Steven Mof-
fett and all-conference candidates
Mike Walker and Kevin Smith.
Smith is no Silent Bob on the
field, as the super sophomore has
rushed 791 yards and six scores in
seven games and is averaging five
yards per carry.
"They're gonna pound it at you and
they're gonna play-action pass you
Holtz said of the UCF offense. "That's
what they do. They get your safeties
involved and reduce the game to a one-
on-one game out on the perimeter,
and that's where they're very good
Walker is a big reason the
Golden Knights are good on the
perimeter.
The 6-2 senior lit up ECU last
year with a 110-yard, two-touch-
down performance and Walker is
putting up impressive numbers
again this season. The Orlando
native has 60 catches for 766 yards!
He has triple the catches and yard-
age of Javid James, who is second
on the team in receptions,
"He's got great size and

1. Win the turnover battle:
ECU turned the ball over six times in the 30-20 loss to UCF
last year. The Pirates nearly had turnovers cost them against
Southern Miss last week. The Pirates need to do a better job
of ball security against a team with 11 giveaways in its last
three games.
2. Run the ball:
UCF is allowing over 178 yards on the ground, good for 10th in
Conference USA and 104th nationally. The Pirates have man-
aged a combined 138 rushing yards in their last two games,
with an average of 1.9 yards per carry. ECU must get better
productivity out of the rushing game to keep the ball away
from the UCF offense.
3.Cover the kick:
Southern Miss did a good job in returns a week ago in estab-
lishing field position. The Pirates need to do a better job of
covering punts and kicks.
"I think East Carolina has really improved since
a year ago. They're a much bettor football
team. They're throwing the ball extremely
well, 260 yards a game. Their quarterback
hit 31-of-40 for almost 400 yards last week
against SMU. They're very multiple on offense;
a lot of formations and some skilled athletes
"I think it's a lot more of a rivalry for us than it
is for them. They've beat us 84-17 in the last
two years. When you're winning, those aren't
really rivalry games. Rivalries are the people
who've been beating you. I know Southern
Miss has a lot of success and it's no surprise
why coach Bower has been so successful It's
going to be a heck of a challenge for our team
to have to play a really good Southern Miss
team, but to have to play them on the road

Campbell, ECU women's soccer earn accolades
Sophomore goalkeeper Amber Campbell was selected to the Soccer Buzz Elite Team of the Week.
(SID) ECU goalkeeper
Amber Campbell has been named
along with Nick Cardenas (San
Diego State) as the NSCAA
National Players of the Week for
Nov. 1. This is the first time an
ECU player has won this presti-
gious award. In addition to being
named to the NSCAA, Campbell
was named to the Soccer Buzz
Elite Team of the Week, an award
given to the best players in the
nation for that week.
Over the last week Camp-
bell held UTEP and Colorado
College scoreless during 1(9
minutes of play. The dominant
play helped ECU claim two wins
and boost its seeding going into
the Conference USA tourna-
ment On Friday, she tied the
single-season school record with
her seventh shutout by record-
ing a 2-0 victory over UTEP.
ECU sophomore defender
Nicole Moore was the first Pirate
to be named to the Soccer Buzz
Team of the Week for her play
S during the week of Aug. 28.
During that time, Campbell was
in the midst three consecutive
shutouts against in-state oppo-
nents.
Campbell's excellent season
has moved her up in the ECU
goalkeeping record books. Camp-
bell has recorded seven shutouts
to tie her for first place for a
single season. Her career goals
against average is currently
1.225 which is good for first place
all-time In addition, her current
0.67 goals against average for
the season beats the previous
mark of 1.10 set in'8003. Camp-
bell has played all but 65:06
in goal for ECU this season.
Several members of the ECU
women's soccer team have earned
recognition on both the C-USA
All-Conference Teams and the
C-USA All-Academic Team.
Junior defender Kat Norris
was named first team all-confer-
ence while sophomore Campbell
was a C-USA second team selec-
tion. This is the second straight
postseason honor for Norris,
as she was named second-team
all-conference last season. Mid-
fielder Sarah Kirkley represents
the Pirates as a member of the
C-USA All-Freshman squad.
Norris is a mainstay on the
ECU defense. She has started
all IK games this season and has
recorded two assists.
Kirkley is a spark in the Lady
Pirate midfield. As a freshman,
she currently ranks first on the
team in assists (10) and second
in points (1).
Moore, an exercise physiol-
ogy major, was named to the C-
USA All-Academic Team. Along
with Erin Johnson of Marshall,
Moore is the only member of
the team that boasts a perfect
4.0 GPA.
The all-academic team con-
sists of 11 student-athletes that
have earned a S.S cumulative
grade point average or better and
are a starter or key reserve on the
women's soccer team. Six Lady
Pirates received honorable men-
tion recognition in Jami Dicker-
son, Blair Heffner, Rachel Hills,
Madison Keller, Patty Pierce and
Mary Puckett.

UCF
continued from Bl
speed Holtz said about Walker.
"He is their go-to guy. I know
both Steven Moffett and Kyle
Israel very well and they are
very talented young men that
throw the ball very well. They
execute their offense extremely
well. It is definitely something
that we are going to get attacked
with. We are really going to have
to challenge our secondary and
we're going to have to be really
smart with our decisions. They
have been very successful with
it with a great receiver and two
very good quarterbacks
Walker and the UCF aerial
attack will contend with an ECU
secondary that is second on the
conference in interceptions with
10, including Travis Williams'
game-clinching pick in overtime
last week at Southern Miss.
"A lot of the credit for our
defense goes to Greg Hudson, Rick
Smith, Rock Roggeman and Donnie
Thompson Holtz said. "Those
are four great football coaches and
they've done an unbelievable job
with this football team
ECU linebacker Danny Muh-
wezi said he knew before the
season began that the defense,
now ranked second in C-USA in
pass defense and total defense,
would be good.
"Honestly, and I'm dead seri-
ous, the way these coaches have
us focused, it was kind of like we
knew something that fans and
other people and other teams
didn't know said Muhwezi,
whose 22nd birthday was Hal-
loween. "The way we were being
coached and how we looked on
film compared to other teams, I
knew from the beginning that we
were gonna be good
While the defense has been
steadily improving each week,
the offense continues its incon-
sistency. The Pirates have scored
35, 10, 31, 10, 38 and 20 points
in their last six games, going
4-2 in those contests. While the
offense did not look great against
Southern Miss, Holtz said they
did what he wanted them do.
"That was not a stat game
Holtz said of the 20-17 overtime
win over the Golden Eagles. "I
thought, for what we asked the
offense to do, I thought they did
a pretty good job. I called a very
conservative attack, but when
we needed a drive, they came
through
To bolster the running game,
Holtz is auditioning some bigger
defensive players this week for
the goal line and short-yardage
packages. To add depth on the
offensive line, the Pirates also
lifted the redshirt off of fresh-
man guard Sean Allen, who saw
significant playing time at against
Southern Miss.
ECU's offense ranks fifth in the
conference, right behind UCF. The
Golden Knights are averaging over
370 yards per game, but are dead
last in points per game, thanks to a
minus six turnover margin.
Junior receiver Steven Rogers
said he is confident the defense
will do its part in stopping Walker,
Smith and the rest of the Knights
while the ECU offense gets to face
a defense surrendering 429 yards
per game. Only Rice's defense is
worse in C-USA.
"Our defense is playing real
good and I have confidence that
when they go on the field, they'll
either get the ball back for us or
hold them to a stop Rogers said.
"Our offense should be able to pro-
duce points. If the offense executes
and puts up points, we should
come out with a victory
Henry, who is second on the
Pirates with 24 catches, knows
ECU should be able to score often
against a UCF defense allowing
33 points per game.
"We think we can put up
good points against them Henry
said. "They got good guys at the
safeties and a good all-American
corner, so it's going to be a good
challenge for us, but I think if we
go out and do what we do best, we
shouldn't have any problems

Many bands come and go
through downtown Greenville's
clubs, but not many make an
impression and leave their audi-
ence begging for them to come
back.
Pico vs. Island Trees is an
exception to this not-so-good
trend, and will be gracing the Red

music on Nov. 16 at 9 p.m.
The band is about to start its
mini-tour throughout North Caro-
lina and South Carolina, and will
be headlining at clubs in Charles-
ton, Atlantic Beach, Wilmington
and their hometown of Raleigh.
After a rough start, the band
is finally back in action and cur-
rently recording their album that
has gotten the attention of many
major record labels.
This isn't a surprise, given that
the band is working with Grammy
Award winning producers David
Kershenbaum and Greg Collins,
who have worked with big bands
U2 and Matchbox 20, as well as
Gwen Stefani.
The band first started when
members Jeremy and Bryan

This movie is very entertaining

Art student holds senior exhibition
Wheeler to showcase art during
senior show at Greenville
Museum of Art
STACY DAIL
STAFF WRITER
For most ECU students, having a solo exhibition
at the local museum seems like a dream, but for senior
Kelly Wheeler, that dream is now a reality.
Wheeler will host her Senior Exhibition at the
Greenville Museum of Art, which will showcase the
work she has accomplished within the last five years
while working with ECU's School of Art and Design.
Wheeler's show, t it led " Rehearing an Identity is com-
posed of ceramic and mixed media artwork, and focuses
on illustrating her life and all that she has overcome.
As a child, she was diagnosed with leukemia,
leaving her challenged by many obstacles that most
children could never imagine facing.
"When I was diagnosed with cancer, I couldn't
really do anything physical, so one of my teachers
brought me a pack of markers she said. "My interest
in art kept growing, and I started painting too. My
work in this show is about my life experiences and
characterizes who I have become as an individual
Although this show is her largest yet, Wheeler
isn't a stranger to the world of art exhibitions. Ever
since 2002, she has participated in the School of Art
and Design's undergraduate show, and her work was
showcased in a show at the Emerge Gallery last year.
While getting ready for her exhibition, Wheeler is
also busy pursuing her master's degree in art therapy.
After graduation she hopes to work at a hospital with
children who have been diagnosed with cancer.
Wheeler admits that it can sometimes be overwhelm-
ing working on a solo show while still being a full-time
student trying to earn her degree. However, she under-
stands that all her hard work is worth it and has some
advice for students new to ECU's School of Art and Design.
"Work as hard as you can and stay focused on
what you want to say and how you want to say it. Take
every bit of advice and insight that your professors
and colleagues hold, and be grateful for what you are
given and achieve Wheeler says.
Wheeler's solo exhibition opened Oct. 31 and will
show through Nov. 7 at the Greenville Museum of Art
located on Evans Street across from Ham's. All ECU
students are encouraged to come out and see what all
the artists have accomplished.

Robert Randolph
and the family band
It's all in the family
AARON BORREGO
STAFF WRITER
Colorblind'is the newest release
from Robert Randolph and it is
critically acclaimed everywhere for
good reason. This band possesses
a blend of carefully crafted music
featuring elements of funk, soul,
classic rock and psychedelic rock.
Major influences can be heard
from Jimi Hendrix guitar riffs to
the soul sounds of Stevie Wonder.
Furthermore, Sly Stone obvi-
ously has influenced these guys in
many ways.
Speaking of other influences on
this band, there is a wealth of musi-
cal collaborations presented on
this album including Leela James,
Dave Matthews and Eric Clapton.
Clapton has been a big influ-
ence upon the band since first
touring with them a few years
back, Clapton has recorded an
incredible solo effort in the song
"Jesus Is Just Alright You may
recognize this song as it used to
be performed by the Byrds and
namely, Eric Clapton himself.
The album explodes upon
the scene with its first track
titled, "Ain't Nothing Wrong
With That Booming drums and
infectious lyrics accompany the
sing-along, which is sure to fire
up any crowd.
The song people would cur-
rently recognize would be "Thrill
of It which is currently playing
on countless radio stations and
music channels nationwide.
The talent of the band as musi-
cians is very clear and evident in
the way they play their music.

Ryan Adams produces new Willie Nelson album
'Songbird' continues
2006's folk-rock
comeback
JOHN BOSCO
STAFF WRITER
Maybe I'm the first to notice
it, and I doubt I am, but it seems
like there's something a little more
than coincidental in this year's
releases from Neil Young, Bob
Dylan and now, Willie Nelson.
While I doubt it's just for the
money, it does look like these folk
artists are finally getting more
credit as living legends, and "sell-
ing out" at the same time.
Just look at Dylan's recent
iPod campaign, his agreement
with major coffee chain Starbucks
to release Live at the Gaslight 1962
exclusively for 18 months and his
huge Martin Scorsese documen-
tary No Direction Home.
But at least the music isn't
turning into complete crap.
Anyway, this is about Nelson's
album, not Dylan's bad old-age deci-
sions (and regardless, for now, he can
still out-perform anyone half his age).
It seems like Nelson may have
nude one of his ow n old-age decisions
by heading in to the studio with North
Carolina-born musician Ryan Adams
as his producer on Songbird.
After listening to the album, it's
obvious that Adams had a huge say
on the songs and their arrangements.
Rather than having Nelson's
traditional band back him, Adams
has substituted them in favor of his
own backing band, The Cardinals.
It's this decision that incites
criticism of Adams' production
skills and value to the record as a
forward thinking sound for Nelson.
Songbird is the convergence of
two sounds, Adams' aggressive,
electric alt-country sound and
Nelson's more traditional country
and folk influences.
While tneopening track "Rainy Day
Blues" (easily the album's best track) sets up
a hopeful, bluesy sound for Nelson's raspy,
sprawling vocals, the rest of tile album is
about as predktabk' as tin flip of a coin.
The album's second track,
"Songbird ruins the brilliant
overtones set up by "Rainy Day
Blues" and dowses the album with
an opening arrangement that
sounds like it should be a tune off
of Adams' 2001 release Gold.
And that's not the only track
on Songbird that sounds like it
should be off a Ryan Adams album.
Nelson's cover of Leonard Cohen's
"Hallelujah" is a good track, but it
suffers from a heavy case of overpro-
duction - too many layers, too much
going on, and the choir is an unneces-
sary, cheap shot at Nelson's solid vocal
performance on the track.
And anyway, Jeff Buckley did a
far better stripped-down, bare bones
version that would have been great to
hear Nelson and his guitar give a try.

upon playing in intimate arenas
and concert halls for a few years,
which has solidified them as one
of the best live musical acts to see.
On this album, though, they
tried to capture something more
than just their great live per-
formances. They tried to cap-
ture a great studio album effort
instead of playing to their already
stout live following on their
records. This is a new idea for
the band, not to mention, and a
completely new process for them
as studio recorders.
It all goes back to a conver-
sation that the band had with
Carlos Santana who advised
them to try making a studio
album that people will remember
and listen to forever. Because
Santana is a rock god, I imagine
he has some credibility.
The album is a walk through
the R&B classics of old, while
maintaining a new twist on an
already established sound. The
pedal steel is an instrument nor-
mally found in country music and
is famous for the "twang" sound
it produces that lends some com-
plexity to this album.
The complexity is further
illustrated in the many different
sounds of instruments and ele-
ments that mix to create many
of these songs. There are many
things going on in the songs that
are hard to follow, but everything
seems to flow seamlessly.
I give this album an A for
its great musical background
and intelligent song writing.
This is sure to be one of the best
albums for a long time to come
and you should check this one out
for yourself.

After performing "Today" by
the Smashing Pumpkins, they
decided that maybe they liked the
music world.
After recruiting other band
mates, Pico vs. Island Trees
formed and spent the next two
years playing in various garages
and even at pool parties, which
was considered a big deal to them
at the time.
The boys decided to get seri-
ous and hired a manager to help
them record their first album
entitled Just Wail. Unfortunately,
this is exactly what the boys did
with their music career, and each
headed off to different colleges in
the Southeast.
As musicians starving to per-
form, the boys of Pico vs. Island
Trees became bored with school
and decided to take the leap to Los
Angeles to really concentrate on
their music careers.
Soon, the band was discovered
by producer David Kershenbaum
on XM radio's Unsigned Artists
Channel, and immediately scored
a record deal with Rebel Yell
Kntertainment.
The band has recorded 18
songs in L.A some of which
will appear on their upcoming
untitled album. While working
on the album at Conway Studios,
the hand was sure to get a little
inspiration from the fact that big
names like Maroon .0 and Chris-
tina Aguilera were recording
their albums right next door.
The release date of the album
isn't set yet, but be sure to check
them out at the Hed Rooster on
Nov. Hi at 9 p.m. for more infor-
mation, check out their Web site

deer bent on having a great time at
the expense of everyone else and his
personal direction.
Lawrence really didn't provide
anything to this already shaky story
outside of having a weird trained
bear relationship with a park ranger.
This relationship could potentially
spark the ire of many for being a bit
"too close" and unusual.
The overall highlights of this
film are the Scottish squirrel mafia
throwing nuts, a strange wiener
dog, a hyperactive slightly brain-
damaged deer and a creepy porcu-
pine. The story really doesn't offer
anything beside this: Hunters are
had and when the animals band
together, they defeat the hunters.
Even as bad as the overplayed
story is, the funny moments are
very funny. The deer and his miss-
ing antler provide most, if not all,
of these moments. I just wish that
the humor was enough to call this
a movie worth watching.
There are some moments of adult
humor that could potentially throttle
young minds into asking the dreaded
question, "What does that mean?"
For the most part, this movie
just may not be original enough
to warrant anything more than a
video rental.
Overall, I give the movie a grade
of a "B" for its funny moments and
idatable characters. However; I
would like to emphasize that its ste-
reotypical characters and unoriginal
plot had a hand in keeping this movie
from being a good motion picture.

I have no problems with
Willie Nelson or Ryan Adams
independent of each other, and, in
fact, I like them better apart.
The album has Ryan Adams
written all over it, with the only
difference being Nelson on vocals
and it doesn't work for an entire
album (an EP, now there's an idea).
Here's to hoping the critics
don't praise this album as the
second coming of Willie Nelson,
or Ryan Adams, for that matter.
Final Grade: C-
