Roads top city residents' concerns
Results from survey by
ECU professor, students
Information obtained by
ECU students about Greenville
residents' opinions of the city's
quality of life was presented to
city officials Monday night.
Ken Wilson, Ph.D sociology
professor, relayed the results of a
student-powered survey to the
Cireenville City Council. The
survey was commissioned by the
council to judge whether voters
would supxrl a Ixind referendum
that would fund road construc-
tion, downtown redevelopment,
a 45-block revitalization plan
and improvements in storm
The random sample survey of
185 voters asked participants what
the most important city issue is
and whether or not they would
support related projects. Efforts
to develop Greenville's roads were
deemed the most important, and
82 percent of respondents said
they would support measures
toward that goal.
According to the survey, the
45-block revitalization project in
West Greenville and downtown
redevelopment ranked second
and third, respectively. The topics
switched in order of support, with
80 percent in favor of downtown
improvements and 65 percent
supporting the revitalization.
Wilson said the surveying
gave his students an opportunity
to measure real, important issues.
However, he told the council the
results were only a foundation.
"We're taking a snapshot
here - what we're showing now
is what people think today said

while three-fourths said 'yes

had little backing.

the issue in 2004.
In a separate presenta-
tion to the council, Chair of
the Greenville Chamber of
Commerce Henry llinton
requested $50,000 to bring the
eastern regional high school
basketball and football
games. The cost would fund
schools' traveling and related

standpoint, sports is who we

llinton presented results of
a survey conducted by a UNC-
Chapel Hill professor measuring
the economic impact of two
football games on a city. Revenue
totaled $355,000.
llinton said hosting the high
school competitions could lead
to bigger things for Greenville
"We've got to crawl before

Members of Ticket One
said they hope to increase stu-

They said they plan to

Ticket One is currently plan-
ning to implement several new
items to improve the quality of
students' experience.
They plan to speed up
SGA funding requests for
campus organizations by start-
ing online requests, which
they hope will take days to
process, instead of weeks.
They are developing a rela-
tionship with the Web site,, which
they hope will allow students
to accurately judge the quality
of potential instructors based on
their peers' comments.

Young Children who watch TV may be
at risk of developing attention problems
CHICAGO (AP) � Research-
ers have found that every hour
preschoolers watch television
each day boosts their chances
- by about 10 percent - of devel-
oping attention deficit problems
later in life.
The findings back up previ-
ous research showing that televi-
sion can shorten attention spans
and support American Academy
of Pediatrics recommendations
that youngsters under age two
not watch television.
"The truth is there are lots
of reasons for children not to
watch television. Other studies
have shown It to be associated
with obesity and aggressiveness"
too, said lead author Dr. Dimi-
tri Christakis, a researcher at
Children's Hospital and Regional
Medical Center in Seattle.
The study, appearing in the
April issue of Pediatrics, focused
on two groups of children - aged
I and 3 - and suggested that TV
might over stimulate and perma-
nently "rewire" the developing
The study involved 1,345
children who participated
In government-sponsored
national health surveys. Their
parents were questioned
about the children's TV view-
ing habits and rated their
behavior at age 7 on a scale
similar to measures used in
diagnosing attention deficit
The researchers lacked data
on whether the youngsters
were diagnosed with attention
deficit disorders hut the number
of children whose parents
rated them as having atten-
tion problems - 10 percent - is
similar to the prevalence
in the general popula-
tion, Christakis said.
Problems included diffi-
culty concentrating, acting
restless and impulsive,
and being easily confused.
About 36 percent of the
1-year-olds watched no TV,
while 37 percent watched one
to two boun daily and had a 10
percent to 20 percent increased
risk of attention problems.
Fourteen percent watched
three to four hours daily
and had a 30 percent to
40 percent increased risk
compared with children who
watched no TV. The remain-
der watched at least five hours
Among 3-ycar-olds, only
7 percent watched no TV, 44
percent watched one to two
hours daily, 27 percent watched
three to four hours daily, almost
11 percent watched five to six
hours daily, and about 10 per-
cent watched seven or more
hours daily.
In a Pediatrics editorial,
educational psychologist Jane
llealy said the study "is impor-
tant and long overdue" but needs
to be followed up to con! irm and
better explain the mechanisms
that may be involved.
The researchers didn't
know what shows the children
watched, but Christakis said

of developing attention problems increases by 10 percent.

There is no
excuse for
this type of
desperate cry
for attention.
A missing college student, Audrey Seiler. was
found alive in a marsh a couple miles away from
her apartment building on Wednesday.
Seiler claimed she was kidnapped from her
apartment, tied up and taken to the marsh.
After finding her, police found inconsistencies
in hot story, concluding that the whole event
was a hoax.
Surveillance tapes show Seiler buying a knife,
duct tape, rope, gum and cold medicine from
a local convenience store. Police found maps
of wooded areas and their weather forecasts
saved on her computer.
Why would an intelligent, well-liked college
student fake her own disappearance?
Police spent an estimated $70,000 on canines,
planes, boats and overtime to search for Seiler.
It is upsetting that someone would fake a kid-
napping and have her family, friends and the
community concerned about her well-being.
In February, Seiler claimed that she was
attacked by an unknown assailant and left
She was not sexually assaulted and she was
not robbed. Could Seiler have been lying about
that attack, too? We think so, especially since
nothing was taken from her.
Seiler should be charged for her crime.
Because she planned her own kidnapping
- down to the supplies used - we view this
intelligent, well-liked girl as negligent, senseless
and inconsiderate.
She's wasted money that should have been
spent on search efforts for real victims and the
conviction of their kidnappers.
Although Seiler is now in a psychiatric hospi-
tal, she should be found guilty and punished.

I saw an advertisement for
clothing recently that had a
young girl, maybe 16, sitting
with her arms propped over
her legs in front of her.
The girl was noticeably
skinny, borderline unhealthy

I don't know who is in
charge of advertising for
that company, but they need
to look back at that ad and
see what kind of message it's
We're talking about an
adolescent girl speaking in
volumes to thousands of
other young girls about "less

Although this quote is refer-
ring to the clothing, you'd have
to be insane to tell me that
there isn't another message
lying within that phrase.
Kver heard of Anorexia Ner-
vosa? Bulimia Nervosa?
these are psychological
eating disorders, Anorexia
being the most prominent in
young women, mostly those
going through the physical
and psychological changes that
come with puberty.
Why on Earth, with some-
thing as serious as that going on
this country, would we have a
society whose advertising puts
this enormous strain on being
physically "perfect?"
from the time they are
little girls, women are under
a pressure that no man may
ever know. More often than
not, it's society that teaches
females they have to look per-
fect. They need to have great
skin, high cheekbones, long
legs, narrow hips, a slim torso
and - maybe, most importantly
- a closed mouth.
Why does our definition
of beauty have to be just skin-
Why isn't an outgoing
quality in a woman desirable?
Why is it that in almost every
advertisement with a female,
there's some kind of sex-sell-
ing mentality depicting these
women as mere objects?
Beauty and being sexy is
not about fitting into a size
four and having a bust size
that makes Pamela Anderson
look like she has two mosquito
bites on her chest.
Though the surface is
almost always the first thing
that intrigues a person about
another and throws a spark out
in the open, looks are merely
a stepping stone - they're not
true beauty.
I'll tell you what beauty
is. Beauty is the woman next
to you who puts up with your
crap day in and day out and still
loves you with all her heart.
Beauty is the woman who has
a brain and a sense of humor
in addition to a body. Beauty
is that creature beside you who
wants to spend every moment
with you for the rest of both
your lives.
Beauty is the wonderful
mother of your children who
has fair skin, wide hips, fit
legs and a wide-open mouth,
whether she is nagging at you
or talking in the sweetest, soft-
est voice you've ever heard.
Beauty isn't about all our
society makes it out to be.
It's about seeing an imperfect
person perfectly.
The next time you see
an ad with a woman half or
barely clothed and some wacky
sex phrase littered all over the
page or television screen, think
about how much you would like
it if you were under a micro-
scope like that every day of
your life.
We're people, not objects
- let's treat each other like
people. And "people" certainly
includes women.

Eat fast while eating healthy
Fast food chains jump
on diet bandwagon
Eating at your favorite fast
food restaurants isn't the same
anymore - the trend is a health-
ier meal instead of the usual
favorites like heavy, saturated,
fatty burgers and the option of
super sizing.
Businesses like McDonald's,
llardees and Wendy's all offer
healthier choices along with the
original menus.
"I think the fast food
industry is making a good effort
to promote a healthy lifestyle,
hut what is going to happen if we
find out that three or four years
later that the low-carb items were
just as bad for us as the rest?" said
Brian Welch, graduate student
business administration major.
McDonald's offers healthy
alternatives for breakfast, lunch
and dinner.
In the mornings, you can
eat an Egg McMuffin and have
a 12-ounce cup of orange juice
totaling at 440 calories.
If you happen to skip
breakfast and zoom into
lunch, you can eat a Caesar
salad with grilled chicken
with Newman's Own Low-Eat
Balsamic Vinaigrette along with
a Eruit 'n Yogurt i'arfait washed
down with a medium Iced lea
that equals 400 calories.
Another option is a four-pack
of Chicken McNuggets with one
pack of honey, a side salad with
half of Newman's Own creamy
Caesar dressing and a small
Sprite for only 470 calories.
However, if McDonald's is
not your favorite fast food res-
taurant, try llardees.
llardees now has Atkins
Wendy's offers salads as one of their low-calorie r
burgers for those looking for an
alternative to other hamburg-
ers. The low-carb Thick Burger
only has six carbohydrates and
49 fewer grams of fat than other
burgers on the menu.
1 lardees also offers a low-carb
Breakfast Bowl with only five
carbohydrates and a low-carb
Chicken Club Sandwich with
just 11 carbohydrates.
Another fast food favorite
is turning over a new menu as
Wendy's now offers low-
calorie foods as well as providing
helpful tips about how to plan
healthier meals daily.
On their Web site,
Wendy', a suggested meal
planner is offered containing
options under 510 calories and
fewer than 10 grams of fat.
Examples are the Jr.
Hamburger with a side salad
and fat-free dressing, a large
chili with a side salad and
fat-free dressing, or a grilled
chicken sandwich with a side
salad with fat-free dressing.
Eor students looking for
other options, talking with a
nutritionist can be helpful. The
Wellness Education department
offers health educators, nutri-
tionists and body image and
eating programs. Services such
as meal planning and nutrition
are offered at no cost to the
"When tliey come to the
Student Health Center, students
are treated by trained profes-
sionals in a respectful courte-
ous manner said Karen S.
Warren, director of Wellness
"All visits are highly confi-
dential and cost effective
Still, it all comes down
to the individual wanting to
change their eating style or meal
"You can change the menu
all you want, however, the
problem is the fact that people
are still living an unhealthy
lifestyle and in order to change
their lifestyle they must first
change themselves and want
to start living a healthier life

The Pirates walloped the 49ers by a combined score of 45-18 in just three games last weekend in Charlotte.
ECU sweeps weekend
series in Charlotte
Chew on this: 48 hits, 10
home runs and 4S runs. Sounds
like enough offense to last 10
games, huh? Try three for the
ECU baseball team, which once
again proved they have one of the
nation's most potent offenses .is
they rocked Charlotte in a three
game set 8-0, 13-5 and 24-13.
In a nearly (lawless per-
formance, the Pirate offense
was working like a well-oiled
machine trained to do two things
- seek and destroy.
The object of destruction
just happened to be the ball in
this case. The Charlotte pitch-
ers are probably suffering from
the lowest esteem levels ot
collective careers after watching
pitch after pitch sail around and,
often times, out ot the ballpark.
The dominance began with a
game one shutout.
Junior Creg Bunn tossed
eight scoreless innings, scatter-
ing two hits and recorded eight
strikeouts as he improved to 5-0
Oil the season.
Phillip Powell came on In
the ninth to preserve (he shut-
out for the Pirates, their fifth ot
the season.
The lethal l.awhorns were up
to their usual anticsagain as they
both homered in the same game
for the third time this season.
Darryl's home run, the 39th
of his career, moved him into a
tie with pitching coach Tommy
hason for third place on ECU's
all-time home run list.
The Pirates improved to 22-
6ovcrall and 4-3 in Conference-
USA with the win.
The offense was in full
throttle again for game two as
BCD pounded out a remarkable
season-high 21 hits along with
another season-high for runs,
13, in route to a 13-5 pasting of
the 49ers.
the Pirates, now 23-6 over-
all and S-3 in C-USA, found
themselves facing a 4-0 deficit
after a shaky start from Shane
Mat hews, who surrendered three
first-inning home runs, allowing
the 49ers to jump ahead.
Mat hews put his foot down
after that and didn't allow
another run in his appearance,
keeping the Pirates in the game.
ECU kicked it into high gear
with an eight-run fifth, which
ultimately proved to be too much
for Charlotte who mustered only
one more run in the home half
of the ninth.
The eight-run explosion was
due largely in part to a set of
homcruns blasted by T. Lawhorn,
Drew Costanzo and Ryan Jones,
who combined for seven of the
eight RBIs in the frame.
Jones' blast was a grand slam
and marked his ninth round trip-
per of the season.
Matt Bishop was the benefi-
ciary of the knockout blow as he
picked up the win and improved
to 2-0 on the season.
Ryan Norwood and Mark
Minicozzi also had fine days at
the plate as they both went 3-for-
5 with an RBI and a run scored.
As it the punishment, irj lie-
firsl two games wasn't enough,
the Pirates were relentless in the
series finale as they banged out 19
more hits to completely obliterate
the 49ers 24-13.

We are finally nearing the end of another academic year For Suzy and John, students
we discussed earlier in the year, the year has brought both successes and lessons
to be learned As students prepare to make the transition to their summer jobs, back to
their families, or for those who are graduating, to new opportunities, there are several
things to consider.
� First, making a transition always means a period of adjustment. This will be difficult for
you as well as your loved ones Don't be surprised if it is difficult to move back in with your
family. After all, you have changed over the year You are not used to your parents and
they are not used to the "new you They might expect you to be the same person you
were nine months ago when they dropped you off at ECU Remember to communicate
clearly and calmly about what might need to be different for you Remember to listen
well, and consider the fact that you are living in their home You may need to make some
� Second, you will be leaving your friends that you have learned to love. Perhaps
you are even separating from that special someone for the summer This can be very
difficult. Have a conversation about what you expect from each other over the summer.
Discuss how you will communicate with each other Discuss possibilities for visits etc.
Remember to do your part in the communicating Don't expect them to always call you,
email you etc. Initiate your share of the conversations.
� Third, You might be seeing old friends from home again Remember that you and the
friends have all changed. Remember that they might not enjoy the same activities, may
not have the same interests as you. Try to let them develop into the people they want to
be, while you develop into who you want to be It is hard to understand how friendships
can change, and if you can acknowledge this, you stand a much better chance at
remaining friends.
� Fourth, you will need to adjust to new time schedules Perhaps you are used to
getting up at 11 00 for your first class Now you have to get up at 8:00 for that new job.
This can take some getting used to. Remember to get your share of sleep Remember
to eat healthy, and not to burn the candle at both ends.
A special word to seniors:
You are embarking on a new journey You will have all kinds of feelings about this. You
may feel anxious or scared because you do not quite know what lies ahead You may
feel sad about leaving your college years behind. You may feel excited about moving on
to this new part of your life. Whatever the case, remember that it is normal to feel all of
these emotions. Go easy on yourself. It is ok if you don't feel great all of the time Talk to
others, take care of yourself, and if these feelings are more than you can handle, come into
the counseling center between 8:30 and 4:30 Monday through Friday for some guidance.

After Charlotte recorded

A Jones three-run triple and
a T. l.awhorn two run job gave
ECU the 19-11 advantage.
The Pirates tacked on five
more runs in the ninth, adding
a bit of icing to the already
heavily glazed cake.
Norwood, Minicozzi and
Adam Witter also added homers
for the Pirates, who ultimately
improved to 24-6 overall and 6-

Jones and T. Lawhorn led the
way with four hits apiece and
three and four RBls respectively.

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