Pirates accept bowl invite
Pirates will face against
unnamed Big East
It's official. The Pirates are
going bowling.
Failing to secure a spot in
the Conference USA Champion-
ship game a week earlier, ECU
picked up the spare Saturday night
with a 21-16 win over N.C. State
at Carter-Finley Stadium. The Bowl took notice,
and Tuesday, ECU accepted an
invitation to play in the inau-
gural Bowl, for-
merly the Birmingham Bowl,
on Dec. 23 in Birmingham, Ala.
"I'm really excited about the
opportunity said ECU head coach
Skip Holtz. "There were so many
positives about the N.C. State
game and getting that seventh win
means so much to this program
ECU (7-5) rebounded from
a 1-3 start to win six of its last
eight and was in contention for
the C-USA East Division title
until the final week of the season.
ECU would have gotten the berth
in the conference title game if it
would have beaten Rice on Nov. 18
or had Marshall beaten Southern
Miss last Saturday. Rice beat ECU,
18-17, on a last-second field goal
while Southern Miss rolled the
Herd, 42-7.
Despite not achieving all of the
goals his team set at the beginning
of the season, ECU head coach Skip
Holtz said he is still proud of what
his team has been able to accomplish.
"It's a reward for the seniors
Holtz said. "I can't be more proud
of these seniors. They stepped
up time and time again and they
were great. They knew we needed
this win for a bowl game. I'm so
excited to go bowling. They did
such a great job and I'm so proud
of all of them
Holtz took over a program
that had won three games in the
two years prior to his arrival. The
second-year coach went 5-6 last
year before this season's seven-win
"It's taken us one step closer to
where we want to be Holtz said.
"I think it's a real compliment to
this senior class. To overcome
what they have, playing in those
lean years. This team has shown
a lot of growth
The Pirates will square off
against a team from the Big East
as the Bowl is
one of just two bowl games that
match C-USA teams with BCS
conference teams. ECU will most
likely face South Florida, which
beat West Virginia last week, with
Cincinnati and Pittsburgh as other
"We have great respect for that
conference Holtz said of the Big
East. "It gives us another oppor-
tunity to play another team from
a BCS conference
ECU went 2-1 against BCS
schools during the regular season
- beating N.C. State and Virginia
and losing to West Virginia.
Conference USA has five bowl
tie-ins, and three have been filled
with the other two to be deter-
mined by the conference champi-
onship game. Southern Miss (8-4)
will play West Division champ
Houston (9-3) on Friday for the
C-USA championship and a berth
in the Liberty Bowl. The loser of
the game will head to the GMAC
Bowl on Jan. 7 in Mobile, Ala. to
meet Ohio. Rice (7-5) will play in
the New Orleans Bowl against the
Sun Belt champion on Dec. 22.
Tulsa (8-4) will meet Utah (7-5)
from the Mountain West Confer-
ence in the Bell Helicopter Armed
Forces Bowl in Fort Worth, Tex.
on Dec. 23.

Tougher statutes on
purchase, consumption,
Several new state laws that
will likely affect students who
choose to drink here at ECU will
go into effect this Friday.
Purchasing a keg will become
more difficult, as anyone wanting
to purchase a keg will be required
to obtain a permit from the ABC
store by registering his or her
name and address. This informa-
tion will be used under circum-
stances such as underage drinking
and D.W.I, cases.
"It makes it easier for local
law enforcement to I.D. who is
responsible said Peter Romary,

Deans and Issues Forum tomor-

The annual Deans and Issues
Forum, which begins at 5 p.m

The event will give students
and faculty the opportunity to
discuss issues and interact with
a number of deans from different
areas on campus.
Many knowledgeable and
important people will attend
this year's Deans and Issues
Forum including Dr. Virginia
Hardy from the Brody School of
Medicine, Dr. Al Smith from the
First Year Center and Dr. Lathan
Turner from the Ledonia Wright
Cultural Center.
The Deans and Issues Forum

current issues and concerns that
ECU students may have. Leader-

that will be covered at this year's

Simply paying off a ticket for
an offense such as illegal posses-

alcohol does not wipe the slate
clean. Romary said that students
caught in these situations on a first
time offense should seek a deferred
prosecution, which would result in
community service but nothing on
their criminal record.

Former provost to receive a portion of the money said to be unpaid salary.
VJSfW S eSSSieee
S9 Cooon on 019ml Taut DonHlon
(AP) A former ECU pro-
vost who sued the school seek-
ing what he said was unpaid
salary and compensation will
receive a portion of the money, a
Superior Court judge has ruled.
William Swart, who was
reassigned from his provost
position in 200S, was awarded
nearly $70,000 for three months
of salary and unpaid housing
allowance. A jury trial expected
to take place in 2007 will deter-
mine whether the university is
obligated to pay Swart additional
money that he believes is written
in his contract.
Swart was the No. 2 officer
at the university from Aug. 1,
2002, until he lost his job Sept.
26, 2003. He was reassigned to
a faculty position in the College
of Business and the university
reduced his pay from $200,000
a year to $117,000.
Swart contends he should still
be paid nearly $164,000 a year as
a faculty member.

Fans, students need
to prevent Holtz
from 'jumping ship!
The more success, the harder it will
be for Holtz to stay
A man with the Holtz surname delivered the
sagest advice of the football season during the half-
time of the ECU's tilt with West Virginia.
On ESPN's national broadcast, the floppy eared
Lou, with his bifocals properly adjusted told halftime
host Linda Cohn in his distinctive lisp "that he will
soon be remembered as Skip's dad
Lou Holtz, winner of 249 games, may have had a
hint of bias in his voice, but with his son's 7-5 record
in his second year at ECU, he looks more like a
prophet than a 160-pound coaching legend.
As an unemployed quarterbacks coach, Skip
Holtz entered into a 'cheap' marriage with a once
proud program, struggling for a shade of stability.
John Thompson's ship wreck had produced two
embarrassing seasons, culminating in ECU's 52-14
loss in Charlotte to N.C. State.
Two years later, Skip Holtz's revamped Pirates
defeated N.C. State 21-16 in enemy territory to down
the same program that his father once coached. It
resulted in N.C. State's seventh straight loss, severing
Chuck Amato from continuing to coach his alma mater.
With success comes opportunity. In the win-now-
or-get-fired coaching profession, the promotions and
demotions happen at a multiplied rate. For struggling
universities, saviors come in the form of younger, up-
and-coming coaches. For Skip Holtz, who has a 46-
34 collegiate record in seven seasons, his charisma
and "name brand" make him a marquee name with
athletic directors looking to fill coaching vacancies.
For proud programs like Arizona State, Miami,
Alabama and nearby N.C. State, mediocrity is unac-
ceptable. The administrators prescribe to the "grass
is always greener on the other side" theory. But
that green usually just translates to money, which
screams louder than any fan.
A contract extension and lifetime contract may
be the popular choice to secure Holtz down for the
long-term, but ECU Athletic Director Terry Holland
doesn't seem to be ready to award a seven figure deal.
"We will eventually lose some staff members
said Holland, who labeled the quandary as a "good
one I think we've done a great job, particularly in
the college environment of hanging onto them so
far. We're going to do everything we can to hang
on them until they have a great opportunity to do
something at a higher level
Holtz, who said that neither he nor a member
of his staff anticipates receiving calls from other
programs, isn't politicking for jobs.
"There's a lot of merit to having the opportunity
to build a program said Holtz, citing his tough deci-
sion to leave the University of Connecticut to be closer
to his ill mother. "I would like to have the opportu-
nity to win a national championship and coach for 20
more years because it's a profession that I love to do
Holtz considers himself a "mut" having moved so
much as a coach's son. Even though he wants to prevent
the same burden on his three children, his goals and
salary demand will likely soon outgrow ECU's reach.
Asked if ECU's win can fulfill his national cham-
pionship goals, Holtz replied candidly, "in the present
state, not being in the BCS, probably not
More than

The truth about volleyball
In high school, there was nothing that I loved more
than going to volleyball practice. After school, our team
would get suited up in pads and ratty old shorts and file
into our multipurpose room ready for action. Once there,
we would spend two hours grunting and sweating until
we were exhausted. Games often ended with bruises,
scrapes and the occasional black eye. At our last game,
our gangly team captain fractured her pinky finger
trying to return a serve. Needless to say, we played hard.
That's why I take issue with Dead or Alive Xtreme
Beach Volleyball for Xbox. From the title, one would
expect it to be a game about athletes playing a sport.
Unfortunately, that isn't the case. The game trailer looks
like a computer simulated commercial for Girls Gone
Wild complete with string bikini clad vixens shimmy-
ing their way up palm trees and sunning themselves on
the beach. The girls also giggle as they give each other
backrubs. In fact, the only indication that it's even a game
involving anything other than jiggling breasts is the
split-second scene wherein a girl slides on the ground
to return a serve (as her breasts jiggle, naturally).
I'm no advocate for video game censorship
- adults should be able to play and watch whatever
they want. But if they want to play a game about sexy
girls and bouncing breasts, why even use the guise
of volleyball to do so? Why take a serious sport and
misrepresent it? If the game were truly about the
sport, then it would include both male and female
players. The fact that the game only depicts women
exposes it as an amusement rooted in tasteless titil-
lation. It is offensive that female volleyball players
are presented as anything other than serious athletes.
Obviously, the game trailer is symptomatic of a
larger problem: Women just aren't respected as athletes.
Advertisers and broadcasters tell the women of tennis to
wear skimpy skirts to ensure higher ratings. The most
important thing is their appearance, not their athletic
ability. No one tells Tiger Woods to accentuate his
crotch during golf games. The athletes depicted in NBA
Live aren't shown soaping themselves in the shower.
The fact that the makers of Dead or Alive chose to
depict the sport with heaving bossoms and sexy moans
rather than sweaty arms and bruised legs is a sad testa-
ment to the failures of modern sex-relations. It makes me
worry that there are guys out there who think women,
athletes or otherwise, are just a sexy pile of body parts
for them to ogle.
I gave my heart away a long time
ago, and I never really got it back.
To all the girls at ECU that dip, wear
cowboy hats and drive trucks will

Red is red, right is right, green is
green, wrong is wrong. Geese like
ganders, mares like stallions, pirates

history of mankind, two men who
have sex with each other has never
even come close to being qualified
as a marriage, so why rewrite
history now? Is it to mask your guilt?

I can't understand how people think
it's cool to boast about how much

incurable, damaging STD?
Can the opinion section of the TEC
get any more boring? We already
know indoor tanning is bad, we
already know stereotypes exist and
especially, we already know that the
media leads girls to think they're too
fat! Please, TEC opinion writers,
think of a hot topic that hasn't been
beaten to death and won't bore your
readers to tears!
To whoever disliked the Bible

Hey, I like the easy Sudoku that
TEC publishes, cause when I try
them, I always complete them and
I feel accomplished!
Why do people insist on being so
loud in the library?
I swear I didn't sign up to live with
two couples.
I just turned on the news for the first
time in awhile, and I am pretty sure
the world is about to end.
OK maybe in 20 beers and two
bags in case one falls off.
I totally like this guy but I know
that my friends won't approve! I
hate this!
Did you know that death by Chuck
Norris actually ranks higher than
car accidents and heart disease
I really like this guy but I'm afraid
of what all my friends are going to
think. Why can't I just be happy and
not care about anyone else!
Insulting someone who is gay is like
insulting someone for being black.
I went to the AIDS talk yesterday and
I swear I'm never having sex again!
Need advice? Want answers? Just ask Jane.
Dear Jane,
I know it's an age-old question, but I was wondering
if there's a more modern answer than what my mother
told me growing up - is it O.K. to have sex on the
first date? I'm not asking your opinion on having sex
before marriage, but is it O.K. to sleep with someone
you've just met? I mean is there anything wrong with
no-strings attached fun?
Not waiting but wondering
Dear wondering,
There's no sense beating around the bush on this
one - absolutely not. While I'm assuming that you're
not morally opposed to sleeping with someone you've
only known for a few hours since you're asking the
question, far too many things could go wrong when
you sleep with someone that you hardly know. There
are more STDs out there than I can name and, worse
than that, what about AIDS? Sure, it's a big conse-
quence and we all like to think we're above catching
it ourselves, the reality is that no one having sex is
immune to it and it's a calculated risk that you have to
be willing to take when you have sex without know-
ing more about the guy. And what would you, or your
partner, do if the girl got pregnant? It's scary enough
talking to someone that you're committed to about that
situation, much less someone you hardly know.
Aside from physical consequences, do you really
want to be that person? You know the one - the person
who everyone likes to hang out with, but no one looks
at her or him as a potential girlfriend or boyfriend. It's
hard to take someone seriously when we're willing to
hit the sheets right after you've met them.
And even though more and more people are will-
ing to risk it all on the first date, there's a certain value
in getting to know someone a little better.

The Opinion
Page talks back
We receive many questions and comments
via Pirate Rant submissions that deserve
a response. Below are answers to some of
your recent questions and concerns.
Q: Why is the space to submit a Pirate Rant
so large?
A: The space is the standard form size our web pub-
lishing platform uses. On a side note, if you had multiple
rants to send in you could send them all at once to save
clicks. Moreover, don't think that we wouldn't publish
them all if we knew they were all from one person - if
they're good, you have nothing to worry about.
Q: Since when were Chuck Norris jokes back
in fashion?
A: You mean to tell us they were ever out? No.
Kidding aside - the Opinion page has found them to
be quite amusing lately amidst a sea of rather typical
and argumentative Rants.
Q: Why did the East Carolinian allow some-
one to post a rant using homosexuality in a
negative way. This is really ignorant. I think
the East Carolinian owes the school an apology
and that person needs to actually act educated.
A: Appropriately named "Opinion this page is
often home of many controversial issues. We firmly
believe in giving all students equal opportunity to have
their voices heard and therefore we publish both sides
of issues when they come in. We hope that the articles
and Rants published on this page expose readers to
different opinions and cause them to think a bit more
about what they believe in themselves.
Q: I think it is funny that ECU now wants to
show all of this "school spirit" around campus
since our football team is good. I mean we've
been around for 100 years and they've never once
thought about putting some purple up around
A: We understand where you're coming from, but
there is something to be said for doing something
late rather than never. You must admit that the new
signage looks amazing. Kudos from the Opinion page
to the administration and everyone else involved who
helped make it happen.
Q: Jane, will you go out with me?
A: Jane's quite an elusive lady so we're not sure what
she'd say seeing as how she has no way of knowing who
you are, but we'll be sure to pass the question along to
her nonetheless.
General Education
Taking our money one class at a time
Ah yes, general education classes - those infamous
classes you have to take before you can start on your
major. Some of these courses are required before you
can enroll into a certain major. For example, you have to
take introduction to psychology before you can become a
business major. I feel that the 42 hours of general educa-
tion you have to take is baloney.
ECU proclaims that we need to take general educa-
tion classes in order to "expand our knowledge We all
know that this is a bunch of malarkey. Universities are
always trying to come up with ways to suck every dollar
out of you and your parents' wallets, whether through
increased student fees or for improving facilities that
haven't shown improvement, such as the operation of
the computer labs on campus.
A good idea that should be considered is for ECU
to go around and hire more professors that can teach
more than one subject pertaining to a certain major. For
example, hire a professor who can teach introduction
to communication, basic reporting and communication
research. That way, we can do away with all of these trav-
eling professors who get paid to come to ECU to teach
one or two introduction courses. I think if we hire more
professors that can teach more than one subject, we can
save money and possibly come up with better solutions
for other areas on campus, such as the improvement of
the residence halls or even the dining hall food.
Another brilliant idea would be to offer more courses
pertaining to your major so that when we graduate, we
will have more knowledge of (and skills that are appli-
cable to) our individual fields. When it comes time to
landing a job, we will be more competitive because we
had certain classes that prepared us for the workforce.
For example, we could require that communication
majors take a certain amount of business classes so that
they will be better prepared to deal with the business
world. If you were to become a publicist for a major
movie star, you would be communicating with his agent
as much as possible. That agent would preferably have a
strong background in law and business. You would make
a much better publicist if you were to have been required
to take some business courses in college. The reason I
say this is because many students out there majoring in
communication might not take a business course at all,
then go out into the world, and struggle because they
don't have any business background.
Many students may fail out of college because some
of the general education classes are too demanding. Take
Intro to Philosophy, for example. That class is insanely
hard to pass unless you go to class each and every day
and can understand what the professor is trying to
communicate to you. Microeconomics is another class
that is really tough to pass. I have heard talk around
campus that the general education classes are harder
than when you get into your major. I agree with this
epiphany because I made a D in the two courses I
mentioned above. I worked my tail off in those courses
and still could barely pass. This just proves my opinion
that ECU takes your money They are accepting more
students into this university than they graduate and
that's just sad. Students don't come to college to fail out
because of a science course that doesn't pertain to their
major. Students come to get an education in their field of
choice in hopes of making something of themselves one
day. I pay around $28,000 a year and get furious when
I make a D in a class I studied my tail off for.
I hope you take what 1 have said today with a grain of
salt. One of these days, we might be able to make a protest
out of the general education program and get it dropped.

Pirate Buzz
Scrimp, save, use coupons
and ask for money you've
been promised. Don't spend
an extra cent. You don't
need to, and you'll be glad
later you didn't.
Don't talk about your
finances, even to your good
friends. Be humble and
appreciative of anything you
get. And hold onto it.
Changes in the situation
require quick adaptations
in your response. Luckily,
you're good at this. Keep
your objective in mind.
Be very careful if you go
shopping, and don't get
a lottery ticket. You're
more likely to waste money
now than you are to get a
marvelous deal.
Your family is very important
but you don't always take
the time to let them know
how much you care. Say it
tonight, with funny movies.
You don't need to start a
controversy. Let somebody
else do that. Take notes
and keep what you learn to
yourself. Good information
has value.
Pretend you're broke even if
you're not. It's a good habit
to acquire. Recycle and
repair whatever you can.
Keep your cash for more
important things.
The temptation is great to
make an unwise expenditure.
Avoid exclusive boutiques
and distant relatives with
sad stories.
It's a tough day, but don't
give up - you can work out a
compromise. Plan a private
celebration for later.
The situation's interesting, if
somewhat difficult now. The
first suggestion you try may
not work, so don't spend too
much time or money on it.
Be skeptical.
You'll be making money
without much effort, once
you get the routine down.
Don't spend it yet, there
are complications as yet
Don't tell everything
you know. Manage the
conversation. Even one
who's rather a bore will draw
attention away, and that's
one of your objectives.
Drink Recipe:
Sleigh Ride Punch
2 quarts cranberry juice
1 pound tangerines, 12

Project road trip: Asheville
Make your way to the
mountains before winter
really kicks in
Whether you're looking for
beauty, history or culture, Ashe-
ville can offer an experience
like no other. From historical
landmarks to delicious and lively
restaurants, Asheville is a fabu-
lous pick for a weekend getaway.
The drive takes five hours from
Greenville, so make sure you
have dependable transportation
and lots of patience.
The Asheville area is a thriving
arts community complete with var-
ious outdoor adventures, a charm-
ing downtown, numerous historic
and architectural attractions, and
assorted shopping options.
The holiday season brings a
selection of memorable activities
and provides one of the best shop-
ping destinations in the region.
The Asheville area is an excellent
choice for year-round outdoor
activities, whether you want to
hike, bike, take on some white
water rapids or hit the slopes.
History buffs will appreciate
the city's architecture and literary
legacy. All travelers can appreciate
Asheville's fine dining, shopping
venues and its many art galleries.
A large attraction in Asheville
is the renowned Biltmore Estate.
Spanning more than 8,000 acres,
this mansion has kept its original
flair since it opened to the public
over a century ago. There are
beautiful gardens, a winery with
tastings, a gift shop, a dairy with
delicious ice cream and much
more. Let's not forget the grand
tour of the home itself.
If you get there early enough
or call ahead, you can sched-
ule an audio tour as well as a
wine and chocolate tour. To cel-
ebrate the holidays, they have also
set up holiday music, garlands,
poinsettias, dozens of Christmas
trees and a magnificent 85-foot
tall live Fraser fir.
Biltmore Estate isn't the only
point of historical interest in
Asheville. Step back in time to
the Victorian era at the 1840
Smith-McDowell House Museum,
Asheville's oldest home. You can
also explore the Thomas Wolfe
Memorial, the author's child-
hood home and the inspiration
for his novel Look Homeward,
Angel. Much of the architecture
downtown was constructed by the
same craftspeople that built Bilt-
more House. Asheville is home to
more Art Deco architecture than
any southeastern city other than
Miami Beach.
As for entertainment, there are
several appealing options. Tressas
has a great New Orleans atmo-
sphere and live music that makes
this jazz bar a great place to hang
out. Most people here have a blast
on the dance floor, but if that's not
your thing, you can go upstairs to
the non-smoking oxygen bar. It
has a fireplace that gives anyone
the perfect excuse to cuddle!
There's also Jack of the Wood
which is an intimate neighborhood
pub with a Celtic spin and is just
a short walk from Pack Square.
English style ales are brewed
on site and live music featuring
Irish tunes or mountain music
is featured Wednesday through
Sunday. Bread, cheese and chut-
ney make a great lunch or supper,
and Beef & Guinness Stew or
Scilly Island Fish Cakes will also
please the palette.
see ASHEVILLE page A5
Biltmore Estate in Asheville is a historic landmark that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and interests.
Plan B: Emergency contraceptive
Emergency contraceptive is a huge step for women's reproductive rights
Morning after pill now
available over-the-
You might have forgotten to
take your pill, or another birth
control method you use might have
failed, such as a broken condom.
Now you have a second chance to
prevent pregnancy with Plan B.
Plan B is an emergency con-
traceptive that can still prevent
a pregnancy after contraceptive
failure, unprotected sex or sexual
assault Plan B should be taken
within 72 hours of unprotected
sex and can reduce the risk of
pregnancy by 89 percent.
Although this contracep-
tive can be taken up to three
days after sexual relations, the
sooner it is taken, the more effec-
tive it will be.
Approximately 2.7 million
unplanned pregnancies occur
each year, of which 54 percent
result in abortion. Many experts
believe that greater awareness of
emergency contraception may help
reduce the number of unplanned
pregnancies and abortions that
occur each year. Although emer-
gency contraception has been
around for a long time, many
people still do not know about it.
Emergency contraception has
been available since the mid 1960s,
and it is currently available in over
100 countries. Although emergency
contraception offers safe, effective
backup protection, it should never
take the place of a regular method
of birth control.
Plan B is not RU-486, the abor-
tion pill, it will not work if you are
already pregnant. It is also not
meant to be a substitute for routine
birth control because of its intent
to be an emergency alternative.
It is important to remember that
Plan B does not protect users from
HI V infection or any other sexually
transmitted diseases.
Common side effects associated
with the use of Plan B included
nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue,
headache, menstrual changes,
dizziness, breast tenderness and
vomiting. These are similar to the
side effects experienced on regular
birth control pills.
Plan B prevents pregnancy by
stopping the release of an egg from
the ovary and may also prevent the
fertilization of an egg, the uniting
of sperm with the egg. Plan B also
works by preventing the united
sperm and egg from attaching
to the uterus. It is important to
know that Plan B will not affect a
fertilized egg already attached to
the uterus; it will not affect an
existing pregnancy.

Time to plan your next holiday feast
Cultural meal variations
Now that Thanksgiving is over, families around
the world have begun getting ready for the biggest
holidays of the year, Christmas, Hanukkah and
Kwanza. In preparation, people are shopping for gifts,
decorating their homes and gathering the necessary
ingredients needed to create their favorite holiday
dishes. The winter holidays are a time to spend time
with family and friends, enjoying meals and celebrat-
ing the meaning of their winter holiday.
When mentioning each of these holidays,
many variations of tradition and food go with
each. Christmas is no exception as far as cultural
diversity goes. Different cultures around the world
have varying traditions when it comes to what foods
they prepare.
In the United States, we enjoy a bountiful feast on
Christmas Day followed by delectable desserts includ-
ing pies, pastries and candies. Let's take a look at some
native dishes of countries around the world.
In Italy, a traditional Christmas feast includes
salted dried cod (baccala), vermicelli, baked pasta,
capon and turkey. La Vigilia Napoletana is a tradi-
tional Christmas Eve dinner where seven types offish
are eaten in order to bring good luck.
A Christmas dinner of oven-baked ham, vegetable
casseroles, liver casserole, mixed beetroot salad,
smoked salmon and herring dishes are eaten on
Different cultures and religions prepare different dishes.
Christmas Eve in Finland. This is a time for families
and friends to enjoy a festive atmosphere while shar-
ing a traditional holiday meal.
In Poland, people begin cooking Christmas
dinner up to a month in advance. On Christmas Eve
there are traditionally 12 dishes served; that's why
preparation for the day begins so early. Soup and
dumplings are common dishes served during this
feast. Polish desserts mirror some of our most popular
Christmas desserts such as rum cake, butter cookies
and fruitcake.
A special Christmas beer, Juleol, is brewed in
Norway weeks before Christmas arrives. Juleol
accompanies the pork dishes that make up the main
course for the Christmas feast. Sweet Christmas

Greenville landmark
serves up tasty
To many students at ECU,
there doesn't seem to be life off
of Greenville Boulevard. If you
are finally tired of the assort-
ment of chain restaurants this
city seems to harbor, consider
the street running parallel to the
traffic nightmare that is the bou-
levard, and enjoy a fresh sandwich
at The Ham Store.
Not to be confused with the
other establishments with ham'
in their names (Hani's and The
Honeybaked Ham Store), The
Ham Store in Arlington Village
is an institution that showcases
varied assortments from the
club to the croissant. It has been
in the same shopping center for
over 15 years, changing locations
only once after the devastation of
Hurricane Floyd.
A note of caution before enter-
ing through these sacred doors:
A disturbing pattern indicates
that once you sample a ham and
cheddar melt or turkey on wheat,
you might possibly find yourself
unable to tear yourself away. Pride
of ECU's golf team Phillip Reale
finds himself eating there on aver-
age three times a week.
"I eat with the same group
of guys every week said Reale.
"They have a great selection,
and I like to change it up a bit,
while my girlfriend always gets
the same thing
It's not just the sandwiches
that draw in unsuspecting pass-
ersby to The Ham Store. Their
desserts send people into cheers,
most notably with the lemon
bars. And while their sweet tea is
not always on point, rest assured
it will almost always quench the
thirst of any Southern native.
While they do not serve
breakfast, it does open at 10 a.m
and has ham biscuits available.
For truly splendid fare, make sure
to have them put some cheddar
cheese on it, too.
Another charming artifact
The Ham Store is known for is
their unique honey mustard sauce.
Unlike any other honey mustard
sauce you've tasted, it has the
appearance of maple syrup. "It's
almost like candy said senior
apparel merchandising major
Kelly Harmon. "There's some
secret ingredient in there that just

There are only two steps to
take this emergency contracep-
tive. Take the first tablet within
three days of unprotected sex, and
then follow with a second tablet
IS hours later.
Although Plan B is safe and
effective, it is not right for every
woman. Do not use Plan B if you
are already pregnant because it
may cause birth defects. If you
are allergic to levonorgestrel or
any of the ingredients in Plan
B, it is ill-advised to consume
for obvious health reasons. Also,
do not use Plan B if you have
abnormal vaginal bleeding that
has not been evaluated by a health
care professional.
In August the PDA approved
Plan B for over-the-counter sell-
ing to women and men over the
age of is. However, a prescription
from a health care professional
is still needed by those that are
underage. Not all pharmacies
have begun to stock the over-
the-counter version of Plan B
so you may want to call before
dropping by.
Plan B is approved by the FDA
for use as an emergency contra-
ceptive, and it contains the same
birth control hormone that health
care professionals have been pre-
scribing for more than S! years.
When used as directed, Plan
B is a safe and effective way to
prevent an unplanned pregnancy.

The food is not the only
appeal of this delightful restau-
rant. There is no telling what
local celebrity might be enjoying
the Golden Gate Club, from high
ranking athletic officials to super
powerful politicians.
Make sure to eat at
The Ham Store in a group and
to also pick up a to-go order.
The dining area is divided by a
walkway making those who enter
and exit feel as if they're strolling
down a runway. It is equally fun
to sashay or to simply observe
those who enter and exit while
you dine.
As a frequent guest of the
restaurant, I have one complaint.
Like Boulevard Bagel, the excess
of certain condiments seems to
be the standard. Boulevard Bagel
overkills on cream cheese, while
The Ham Store almost soaks their
sandwiches in mayonnaise. For
those who have extreme aversions
to the white substance, make sure
to clearly express your preference
for a dry sandwich. Too many a
time, I have made the mistake of
holding my peace on the subject
and then cried in despair at my
ruined sandwich.
There is something magical
about The Ham Store that, after
four years, I am still unable to
put my finger on. However, it is a
lunch time must for all citizens of
Greenville, no matter what your
stand is on condiments.

bread filled with raisins sends
a tantalizing scent into the air
luring people in from the cold to
enjoy a hot slice.
A centerpiece of turkey mole,
a sauce containing chocolate and
chilies, is surrounded by roast
suckling pig, turkey and beet
salad with peanuts at a traditional
Christmas Five dinner in Mexico.
Chocolates, candies, fruits and nuts
are hidden inside pinatas, which
are broken by children after dinner.
Although Christmas is the
most commercialized holiday
during the winter season, Hanuk-
kah and Kwanza host tradi-
tional foods as well. The most
popular dish for Hanukkah is
latkes, or potato pancakes. Their
popularity stems from the way
they are cooked, which is in
oil. Being cooked in oil, latkes
remind Jewish people of the
miracles that a single pitcher of
oil can hold. Applesauce, green
onions and sour cream can be
poured on top of the latkes. If this
doesn't sound like enough to eat,
don't worry; baked chicken and
salad accompany them to create
a feast.
At the close of Kwanza, a very
large feast is prepared in order
for people to share fellowship and
become closer to their African
heritage. Information and enter-
tainment is presented during the
feast that is held in December.
The main ingredient of the feast
is coconut. Some of the most
common Kwanza foods include
baked chicken in coconut milk,
coconut coleslaw, glazed sweet
potatoes and coconut cream pie.
No matter what you choose to
devour this holiday season, revel
in the idea of taking time out
to spend with loved ones before
heading back to the hustle and
bustle of everyday life.

The senior from Alachua,
Fla. has two inteiception
returns for touchdowns this
year, a 77-yard return in the
home-opener against Mem-
phis and a .58-yard return to
seal a road win at Central
Florida. Those two pick-sixes
go along with his four aerial
thefts on the season and ups
his career mark to seven.
A chiseled specimen at 6-
feet, 183 pounds, Ross may be
undersized but has the type
of speed to play in the NFL
with a 4.4 40 and has played
in 44 games, starting the last
23 in a row.
Nicole Briggs
Nicole Briggs, a freshman cross
country runner from Barrington,
N.J. came to KCU facing high
expectations. Briggs meet those
expectation! and more as she was
the top runner for the Pirates in
every single meet this season, a
truly remarkable accomplishment
for anyone, much less a freshman.
Briggs helped lead the Pirates
to the Ml .Mister's Deli Invite title,
their first title since Oct. 4, 8004,
spanning 20 events. In the meet,
Briggs finished second with a time
of 18:54. In just her first meet,
Briggs finished third overall at the
Seahawh Invitational in Wilming-
ton, N.C.
Briggs finished lltli overall in
the Coastal Carolina Invite, third
in the Old North State Invite, ninth
in the Furnian Invite, and 32nd
in the C-USA championships to
round out her stellar freshman
Darrell Jenkins
The .5-11 junior leads C-
USA in assists through five
games with 7.4 and has already
recorded two double-doubles
on the young season, to include
22 points and 12 assists in
the season-opening win over
Morgan State
Coming from a winning
program at Southern Idaho that
contended for a JuCo national
championship, Jenkins brings
that winning attitude. He also is
a true point guard, something
else that has been missing from
the team, which allows Court-
ney Captain, last year's point
guard, to play shooting guard,
where he is more comfortable.
Aside from his C-USA-
leading assist total, Jenkins is
averaging 15 points to lead the
team and also leads the team in
minutes played and 3-pointers.
Amber Campbell
While Amy Szilard was scor-
ing, Amber Campbell was making
sure the other team did not. This
season Campbell accumulated a
.850 save percentage and a season
record .78 goals against average,
finishing second for second in
Conference USA in both catego-
ries. She tallied seven shutouts in
her sophomore campaign, tying
for third in the conference while
placing in the top 10 in nearly
every category for goalkeepers.
For the week of Nov. 1, Campbell
received the NSCAA National
Player of the Week honor, the
first time in KCU history During
that same week, she was named to
Soccer Buzz's F.lite Team of the
Week, an award given to the best
players in the nation for that week.
James Pinkney
Senior quarterback James
Pinkney capped his ECU
career by moving into second
place all-time on the ECU
career passing yards list with
over 8,000 yards. Pinkney
threw for 2,773 yards last
season, good for second-best
behind only Jeff Blake's 3,073
yards in 1991.
Pinkney has started more
consecutive games, 37, than
any other player in school his-
tory not named David Garrard.
With his durability, Pinkney
has developed a reputation
for being one of the toughest
players in C-USA. Along with
his 2,658 passing yards this
season, he has also run for 225
yards and four touchdowns
while throwing for another 11
TDs with lo'interceptions.
Christie Icenhower
Icenhower has finished first
place in all six dual meets she
has competed in this season. As
a junior diver, she set the varsity
record on the one-meter boards
with a score of 391.28 and then
qualified for the NCAA Regional
the following day at Towson.
During the weekend, she broke
her own varsity records she set as
a sophomore. She was an NCAA
Zone qualifier on both boards last
season and was also named ECU's
most outstanding diver during
each of the past two years.
She recently earned a sixth
place finish in the prestigious Nike
Cup on the three-meter boards
with a score of 285.GO. She also
claimed a sixth place finish on
the one-meter board, helping the
women finish seventh in the nine
team competition.
Stephen Tausend
Senior Cross Country
runner Stephen Tausend and
his fellow teammates entered
the 2006 season wanting to
improve on a surprising season
the year before. Tausend,
arguably the leader of the
team, didn't disappoint.
Tausend, a native Texan,
paced the cross country team
in every meet except one.
The best finish for Tausend
was in the McAlister's Deli
Invite. In the meet, Tausend fin-
ished sixth overall with a time
of 26:46. Tausend also placed
10th overall in the Seahawk
Invitational, 17th in the Coastal
Carolina Invite, and 41st in the
Furman Invite to round out his
senior season.
The season was not with-
out disappointment, however.
Tausend failed to finish in the
C-USA championships also held
at Lake Kristi.
Heidi Krug
Heidi Krug became ECU's
all-time volleyball assists leader
midway through the season pass-
ing . The senior setter finished
third in C-USA in digs per game
(12.56) and fourth in total assists
(1,369) en route to eight straight
conference wins and a 19-12 over-
all record. Krug earned second
team all-conference honors after
being selected to the third team
as a junior. She finished her career
with a 59-assist performance
during the C-USA Tournament
loss to UTEP, giving her 4,819
digs. She also earned 11 digs in the
season finale, which put her 10th
all-time on the career digs list. She
maintained a 4.0 GPA in biology
and was the only unanimous pick
on the all-academic team.
Ryan Dougherty
Ryan Dougherty turned
in one of the best seasons of
the senior's four-year career.
Dougherty moved into first
place on C-USA's all-time
punting list earlier this year.
Against Virginia, the
senior from Orlando booted a
career best 72-yard punt that
traveled 68 yards in the air
before landing at the 4-yard
line and skipping into the end
zone. Having what Holtz called
"an NFL leg Dougherty has
been able to flip the field
on opponents and has been
the one consistent strength
in an inconsistent special
teams unit.
On the season, Dougherty
has punted 45 times for nearly
2,000 yards and a 43.9 average
with five touchbacks, 14 fair
catches and 14 punts inside the
opponents 20.
Amy Szilard
Amy Szilard, a freshman
forward took some time to adjust
to the college game, but once
she caught on, conference oppo-
nents had to take note. Szilard
scored eight goals for the
Pirates in her first season, pro-
jected out over her career she
would finish among ECU's lead-
ers in scoring. "She does what a
scorer does according to ECU
Head Coach Rob Donnenwirth.
At 5-foot-2 many would not
think her to be an intimidating
presence on the field, but she
accounted for seven goals in the
Pirates last 12 games.
Compiled by Eric Gilmore,
Ron Clements and Jared Jackson.
They said it
"We will eventually lose some
staff members. I think we've
done a great job, particularly
in the college environment of
hanging on to them so tar. We're
going to do everything we can
to hang on them until they have
a great opportunity to do some-
thing at a higher level I don't
think you can buy loyalty from
your coat lung staff I think you
have to earn it. It's a two way
street If you want your coach
to be loyal to you, you have to be
loyal to your coach there's a lot
more at stake than money

(SID) Conference USA and
its bowl partners have reached
agreement on the league's post-
season lineup for the 2006-07
bowl season. The conference
produced five schools with seven
or more victories and those teams
will fill the conference's agree-
ments with the AutoZone Liberty
Bowl, GMAC Bowl, Bell Helicop-
ter Armed Forces Bowl, Papa- Bowl and the RL
Carriers New Orleans Bowl.
"This has been an exciting
season in C-USA and these five
schools will be outstanding rep-
resentatives of the conference in
postseason play said C-USA
Commissioner Britton Banowsky.
"We are blessed to have such out-
standing bowl partners and we
know that our student-athletes,
coaches and fans will enjoy the
bowl season
The AutoZone Liberty Bowl
will select the winner of Friday
night's C-USA Championship
Game between Houston and
Southern Miss for its 48th annual
game. This year's AutoZone Lib-
erty Bowl is scheduled for Friday,
December 29 at 3:30 p.m. CST in
Memphis and the C-USA Cham-
pion will face an opponent from
the Southeastern Conference.
"The winner of this game
will represent Conference USA
very well at this year's AutoZone
Liberty Bowl said AutoZone
Liberty Bowl Executive Direc-
tor Steve Ehrhart. "The winner
will be either a 10-3 Houston
Cougars squad or a 9-4 Southern
Miss Golden Eagles team. Either
way, we will have an outstanding
Conference USA Champion in a
match-up against a team from the
Southeastern Conference
The GMAC Bowl will take
the runner-up of Friday night's
game for its eighth annual con-
test. This year's GMAC Bowl will
be played on Sunday, January 7
at 7 p.m. CST in Mobile. The C-
USA representative will face an
opponent from the Mid-American
"We are looking forward to
Grobe says
he's staying at
Wake Forest
(AP) Jim Grobe insisted
Tuesday that he is not leaving
Wake Forest, brushing off rumors
that other schools are interested
in hiring him.
Grobe, who coached the
16th-ranked Demon Deacons
to an Atlantic Coast Conference
division title, said he has not
been contacted by other schools
and has no interest in leaving
the Wake Forest program he
has rebuilt during his six-year
"There's probably some mis-
understanding with how excited I
am to be at Wake Forest Grobe
said. "I think people assume that
if you're at a smaller school, at
a program that hasn't been suc-
cessful, that you would want to
jump at the first opportunity that
came along for a bigger school or
more of a football reputation or
"But people misunderstand
how good we feel about not only
what we're doing right now but
where we're headed he added.
Grobe had been rumored as a
potential candidate at Alabama,
which fired Mike Shula, after he
led the perennially struggling
Demon Deacons to a school-
record 10 wins and a berth in
Saturday's conference champion-
ship game against No. 23 Georgia
the C-USA Championship Game
said GMAC Bowl President Jerry
Silverstein. "We know that we
will be getting a quality team
that we hope will be excited to
come to Mobile and play a qual-
ity team from the Mid-American
West Division Champion
Houston will be going to a bowl
game for the third time in four
years under head coach Art Briles
and will be making back-to-back
trips for the first time since going
four years in a row from 1978-81.
Southern Miss will be going bowl-
ing for the ninth time in the 10 sea-
sons under head coach Jeff Bower.
C-USA's three other 2006
bowl partners have selected the
Conference USA representative
for their bowls.
Tulsa (8-4) will play in the
Bell Helicopter Armed Forces
Bowl on December 23 in Fort
Worth, Texas. The Golden Hur-
ricane will face Mountain West
Conference representative Utah
(7-5) in the fourth annual game
(formerly the Fort Worth Bowl).
Tulsa will be making back-to-
back bowl appearances for the first
time since the 1964-65 seasons
and are in postseason play for the
third time in four seasons under
head coach Steve Kragthorpe.
The Golden Hurricane featured a
balanced attack, led by junior QB
Paul Smith on offense and senior
LB Nick Bunting on defense.
"We're looking forward to an
excellent football game between
Tulsa and Utah said Tom Starr,
Bell Helicopter Armed Forces
Bowl Executive Director. "I've
seen both teams play many times
and I truly believe fans are in
for an exciting match-up. Coach
Kragthorpe has done a fantastic
job with the Tulsa program
ECU (7-5) will return to post-
season action for the first time
since 2001 when it plays in the
inaugural Bowl in
Birmingham on Dec. 23 at Noon
CST ECU will face an opponent
from the Big East Conference at
historic Legion Field. Second-
year head coach Skip Holtz has
led a dramatic turnaround in
Greenville and the Pirates are
back in postseason play thanks
in part to an improved defense,
along with a productive pitch-
and-catch combo in senior OB
James Pinkney and senior WR
Aundrae Allison.
"ESPN is pleased to announce
that East Carolina University has
accepted our invitation to repre-
sent Conference USA in the inau-
gural Bowl said
Mark Meadows, Executive Direc-
tor of the Bowl.
"We look forward to welcoming
the Pirates football team and its
supporters to Birmingham
Under first-year head coach
Todd Graham, Rice (7-5) is tied
with SEC West Champion Arkan-
sas as the most improved team in
Division I-A. The Owls will make
their first bowl appearance since
the 1961 Bluebonnet Bowl in the
RL Carriers New Orleans Bowl
on Dec. 23 at 7 p.m. CST. Rice
will face the champion of the Sun
Belt Conference (either Troy or
Middle Tennessee) in the game
and will carry a six-game win-
ning streak into the bowl. Rice is
led by sophomore WR Jarett Oil-
lard, a finalist for the Biletnikoff
Award who has caught a nation-
leading 20 touchdowns and has
scored in 14 straight games, the
second-longest streak in NCAA
"We're excited to have what
we feel is the hottest team in the
conference right now said Billy
Ferrante, R L Carriers New
Orleans Bowl Executive Director.
"Rice's proximity to New Orleans,
enthusiasm, and anticipation
of its first bowl appearance in
many years should translate into
an electric atmosphere in New
The AutoZone Liberty Bowl,
GMAC Bowl and Bell Helicop-
ter Armed Forces Bowl will be
televised by ESPN, while the Bowl and RL
Carriers New Orleans Bowl will
air on ESPN 2.
Tulane fires Scelfo
Tulane fired Chris Scelfo on Tuesday after eight years and only two winning
seasons. Scelfo returned to the Louisiana Superdome after not playing a
home game in 2005 due to Hurricane Katrina. He finished with a 37-57
record and only one postseason bowl appearance with the Green Wave.
