Ballard holds first
faculty convocation
New chancellor
outlines challenges
In his first faculty
convocation, ECU'S new chancel-
lor Steve Ballard addressed mem-
bers of the ECU community and
outlined ECU's strong points and
how we will overcome challenges
to be faced this year.
"I am delighted and honored
to be here with you as ECU begins
its 96th year of operations said
"We do have a great future
at ECU, and we all together can
design that future. We already
have outstanding people, an
excellent infrastructure and
really untold opportunities if
we work together, much more is
Ballard said he spent much
time this summer learning about
ECU's history and evolution.
During this time, he said he
learned of ECU's great spirit and
pride in believing in itself and
its future. Ballard said ECU's
aspirations are high because we
know we can succeed and ECU
is committed to its students and
learning. Even with the many
visions and demands ECU faces,
we are always able to maintain
a quality-learning environment
and add value to our learning
After visiting a number of
academic departments and
offices and talking to various
faculty members, Ballard said
he learned ECU'S values of
openness, honesty and integrity
are strong.
"I will do everything in
my power to both honor our
traditions and to build a great
future Ballard said.
"Our foundations are solid.
You deserve the leadership that
will promote our possibilities
and realize our destiny as a great
Ballard said ECU is exactly
the right institution for him as
he has devoted his career on
addressing the question of how
a public university can best con-
tribute to our society. He said he
has joined an institution that he
believes can make a difference.
Ballard said he has been
working in higher education for
30 years and has gained much
knowledge through working
with various people. In this time,
Ballard said four main themes
have stood out to him including
community, people, quality and
aspirations. Ballard said he feels
ECU is strong in each of these
aspects, citing ECU's ability to
work together, the success of the
quality of ECU's cardiovascular
center and the strong vision and
aspiration of former Chancellor
Leo Jenkins who went forth in
the development of the Brody
School of Medicine.
Ballard said ECU's vision
is about ECU only and its
role in the state and nation.
While it is important for us to
keep our peer institutions and
competitors under consideration,
ECU's vision must be strong, bold
and we must be excellent in what
we choose to be.
Ballard also cited successes of
ECU students as having gradu-
ation rate.s greatly above the
national averages and more than
8,000 students being involved
in volunteer activities. When it
comes to students' success, we
can be the best public university
in North Carolina and one of the
best in the nation.
"We are the fastest growing
university in North Carolina for
a reason. The word is out that
students receive a great education
here Ballard said.
Despite successes and strong
points of ECU, Ballard said the
university still faces several
challenges in upcoming years.
Ballard said ECU's resource
base has declined with the
decreased state funding while
our expectations, demands
for service and accountability
have continued to increase. To
compensate this loss, Ballard
said ECU must aggressively
increase its revenue from every
available source and focus on our
activities ensuring we spend
money wisely.
In an effort to improve ECU's
accountability, Ballard said we
will be publicly accountable,
vigilant and self-correcting.
"It is our responsibility to
earn the public trust and keep
that trust Ballard said.
ECU must recognize the
nature of our world and build
an institution that is in line
with our world. Ballard said he
is committed to enhancing the
intellectual and demographic
diversity of ECU to provide
students, staff and employees
the opportunities necessary to
achieve in such a diverse world
and global economy.
Ballard said ECU will
continue to face the challenges
of growth both because of our
obligation to provide access
to our programs and because
of eastern North Carolina's
dependency on us. Ballard said
he feels this challenge is a good
challenge because it means we are
fulfilling a fundamental mission
we have and it provides access to
increased state revenues.
"While we recognize our
challenges, we also know they are
exceeded by our opportunities
Ballard said.
"We are an important, vital
university in a knowledge-based
economy. We have the central
resources, knowledge, skills and
competencies needed by the
entire world
Ballard said eastern North
Carolina depends on ECU for
economic development and
we have substantial strength
in our curriculum, faculty and
partnerships to be the economic
engine of our region.
"This is a great time to be a
part of ECU Ballard said.
"Tomorrow starts here
today, and I ask you for your
commitment to make this a truly g
unique community known for I
making a difference to its state, �
to its region and to its lives

Ueberman accepts
new faculty position
A new position was created at
ECU this year in an effort to help
alleviate the growing number of
problems and tensions between
the Greenville community and
ECU students.
Michelle Lieberman,
a former ECU sociology
professor, was hired as the student
neighborhood relations facilita-
tor in order to mediate disputes
between students and both their
neighbors and landlords.
"I'm basically a liaison
between the community and the
university said Lieberman.
Coexistence between young
college students and their grown-
up neighbors causes a lot of
friction every year, Lieberman
said. This tends to lead to a lot of
unhappy neighbors with a lot of
issues they want resolved by the
Students understand this
Issue of college students living
near and relating to their grown
up neighbors is not an easily solv-
able problem.
"You're talking about

Zachary Kent.
"There's going to be prob-
Most of the complaints
against ECU students have been
for issues such as excessive noise,
broken glass from beer bottles in
the street and not maintaining
their residences by cutting the
grass and picking up litter.
Lieberman said, however,
that this is a two-way street.
Many local residents will
have a group of students living
next to them that cause a lot of
problems, Lieberman said. When
these troublemaking students
leave the neighborhood the
damage has already been done,
and every student that moves
into the neighborhood will now
be just another problem waiting
to happen.
Lieberman is meeting with
neighborhood associations to
attempt to eliminate this ste-
reotype of ECU students and
explain that there are plenty
of law-abiding and thoughtful
students at ECU.
Lieberman said another
crucial part of her position is
providing mediation between
students and their landlords.

Java City opens in Joyner Library
On-site cafe wireless
Internet available
The Grand Opening of Java
City in Joyner library took place
last Wednesday in an effort to
make trips to the library more
appealing and convenient for
ECU students and faculty.
The request for a Java City
addition to Joyner Library has
been a popular suggestion of
ECU students for the past several
years said Allison Metcalf, ECU
marketing program manager for
"ECU campus dining con-
ducts surveys each semester to
gain feedback on how we are
doing and what we can do to
better serve our customers" said
"About three and a half years
ago, many students commented
that they would like to see this
type of establishment in Joyner
library. The opening of Java City
in Joyner library is in direct
response to these surveys
Joyner's Java City offers the
same menu Items as the other
campus locations, but wireless
internet access and cafe tables
are also available. A popular
reading section and sitting area
located on the first floor is also
provided. All of these additions
are intended to contribute to
what Metcalf calls a "Barnes &
Noble atmosphere
The cost of the project totaled
to approximately120,000. Con-
struction of all Java City locations
cost a uniform $100,000 but the
Joyner cafe required an addi-
tional $20,000 because of its loca-
tion, said William Clutter, assis-
tant vice chancellor of student
life. Planning and construction
of the project took about three
and a half years and required
additional funding because the
area had to be converted from a
storage closet to a cafe.
Funding of the project came
from ECU dining services, Clut-
ter said.
Metcalf said the new addition
is a necessity for the convenience
and safety of students at ECU.
A goal of this new Java City is
to alleviate common problems
associated with patrons violat-
ing Joyner's no food policy.
This policy has undergone some
changes as a result of the new

Brody receives $60 million to
fund cardiovascular institute
Personnel expects
change in health care
ECU is receiving $60 million
in public funding to create a
center committed to cardiovas-
cular research and health.
The center, which will be
entitled the Eastern Carolina
Cardiovascular Institute is
expected to both overall improve
the health care in North Carolina
and help generate revenue for
the state.
Governor Mike Easley signed
a bill this summer allotting mil-
lions in public funding to support
various projects throughout the
state, including a cancer treat-
ment center In Chapel HUI.
The Brody School of Medi-
cine and the University Health
Systems of North Carolina have
united to create the prospects for
ECCVI. The institute is designed
to Incorporate everything of
cardiovascular health into one
program and overall improve
the service.
Dr. W. Randolph Chitwood,
senior associate vice chancellor
for health affairs and director
of the current North Carolina
Cardiovascular Diseases Insti-
tute, said the new establishment
will promote better clinical care,
develop new research programs
and educate the population and
health care providers.
Chitwood said ECCVI will be
centered around two buildings.
One building will be dedicated
to research and education and
will Include a conference center,
research labs and offices. The
other will incorporate a new
120-150-bed hospital devoted to
cardiovascular health.
The demand for ECCVI Is due
to a growing number of heart
and vascular disease victims in
the state. One in four Americans
suffer from cardiovascular dis-
ease accounting for 40 percent of
all deaths In North Carolina. Car-
diovascular disease is a greater
problem for the eastern counties
In North Carolina than most of
the country.
Chitwood said if eastern
Carolina was compared to every
state, it would rank 50th in terms
of pre-mortallty.
The ECCVI in Greenville will
enable patients in eastern North
Carolina to receive more immedi-
ate treatment.
Chitwood said he was the
first doctor in the United States
to perform robotic surgery and
he now heads the only training
course in the country.
The ECCVI will also ensure
a reduction in damages to the
economy while cardiovascular
diseases cost North Carolina
more than $6 billion each year.
Chitwood said the institute
will Improve and expand the
workforce and economic devel-
The project will demand
many jobs in construction for
years. When the ECCVI is built,
it wlU eventually employ nurses,
specialists, researchers and other
hospital personnel.
However, Chitwood said the
money is strictly for billing and
is not designed for raises.
Once underway, the ECCVI is
expected to increase the amount
of revenue of the region.
The short term economic
benefit from construction totals
to more than $300 million and
the annual long term benefit is
estimated around $21 million for
eastern North Carolina.
Chitwood said the institute
will also focus a highlight on
ECU and University Health Sys-
The education and research
center for the ECCVI will take
approximately three years to
complete while the hospital may
take four or five years.
Once completed, Chitwood
said he hopes to develop a focus
on cardiovascular disease for
eastern North Carolina and the
rest of the world.

An armed robbery at Cheap

According to the report issued
by the Greenville Police, two
Greenville officers were on foot
patrol within the downtown area
when an employee approached
them informing them of a
robbery. The officers went to
where the suspect had been
sited last and in the confusion
of the incident, a club employee
advised the officers that the
suspect left the scene heading
north on Greene Street in a white
vehicle. When officers stopped
this vehicle, they soon found
from other witnesses that its
passengers were not the suspects
of the robbery.
The officers then returned to
the site of the incident to gather
more information. They found
that the suspect was standing
in the alley near O'Malley's bar
along with another suspect. The
suspect approached the workers
at the front door implying that
he had a concealed gun under
his shirt. The suspect grabbed the

Brody experiences a $6.5 million budget deficit
While You Were Gone
Budget cuts, increased
expenses cited
The Brody School of Medi-
cine, faced with a $6.5 million
budget deficit during next fiscal
year, is keeping all educational
and medical services at the same
level and is looking at other
methods of making up for lost
Gary Vanderpool, executive
associate vice chancellor for
health sciences administration
and finance, said he feels this
deficit is not only affecting the
school, but various other medi-
cal schools across the nation due
to nationwide pressures on state
budgets, increased expenses,
increased indigent care and
decreased reimbursement rates.
Decreased funding from the
state budget, Vanderpool said,
has been a factor that has affected
the school each fiscal year since
1999 - 2000. Not including state
budget cuts for the next fiscal
year, the school has experienced
an approximate total of $14 mil-
lion in these cuts over the last
five-year period.
"It's ust one year after
another said Vanderpool.
A prime example of increased
expenses is the increased insur-
ance fees of physicians protecting
them from any malpractice that
may occur in the workplace. Van-
derpool said the school is paying
more than two and a half times
the amount of insurance costs
paid in 2002.
Vanderpool said this insur-
ance increase is a nationwide
phenomenon affecting various
institutes and has even driven
some physicians out of practice.
"Some states are in a severe
malpractice crisis. While North
Carolina is not in a crisis yet, It's
having an impact in this state
Vanderpool said.
The NC State Employee Health
Plan has cut the reimbursement
rate they pay to physicians twice
over the last three years.
Medicaid has cut the rate at
which they reimburse our phy-
sicians for providing medical
care to Medicaid, or low-income
patients who are unable to pay for
medical care. Medicare, a health
care providing care to senior
citizens, has also decreased funds
"All of those payers, and
other have reduced the rate at
which they pay us for our profes-
sional medical care Vanderpool
Aside from the decreased
amount of reimbursement rates,
much of the medical care pro-
vided to low-income patients
who do or do not qualify as
Medicaid patients is not even
"In the state fiscal year of
2001 - 2002, the amount of
uncompensated care that we pro-
vided in Medicaid patients was
roughly $16 million dollars. The
amount that we provided this
year is more than $21 million
Vanderpool said.
"That represents the time
of our physicians, the time of
our support staff providing free
medical care
Vanderpool said part of Bro-
dy's social contract as a state
medical school is to treat patients
who cannot afford care despite
the budget deficit. He said the
school will continue to uphold
this contract.
"We're not going to eliminate
any services Vanderpool said.
Vanderpool adds that just
about all of jobs that have been
forced to be eliminated have
been administrative support
type positions, which are not
positions that deliver health care,
and therefore does not affect the
quality of medical service.
Vanderpool said these major
expenses faced by the school
have placed a large amount of
pressure on the clinical budget,
the main source of income. The
school's clinical budget, gener-
ated from medical care provided
to patients, makes up approxi-
mately 60 percent of the school's
total income.
Plans in making up for the
budget deficit include improving
organizational structure, improv-
ing business processes to increase
reimbursement, imposing hiring
fees and recruiting more patients
including university or state
employees, all of whom have
decent insurance policies.
One possibility the school
may need to resort to is laying
off workers. Vanderpool said
the school will try to use every
other reasonable option before
they resort to this, but the option
cannot be excluded as a pos-
While the Brody School of
Medicine is the cheapest medical
school in the nation, Vanderpool
said the school is limited on how
much they can afford to increase
tuition. Vanderpool said a dra-
matic increase in tuition would
Increase the debt of students,
which would lead to other prob-
lems and would also conflict with
the mission of the school to pro-
vide educational opportunities
for minority and disadvantaged
"The Brody School of Medi-
cine is going through some dif-
ficult financial challenges but
we're going to come out of those
challenges stronger that we were.
We have strong leadership, we
have committed faculty, we have
committed staff and we're going
to keep seeing the same patients
we've been seeing in the past and
we're going to keep educating our
students Vanderpool said.

Degree designed to
meet students'interests
ECU'S new systems engi-
neering program, which began
on March 19, has attracted 45
student applicants, 15 Ph.D. engi-
neering faculty and has started
some controversy among UNC
system officials as to whether the
program is necessary.
Ralph Rogers, dean of the col-
lege of technology and computer
science said he feels the program
will benefit ECU, and help meet
demands of both ECU and east-
ern North Carolina.
"We think there is a lot of
Interest out therecertainly
there is a lot of Interest in busi-
ness and economic develop-
ment community at ECU having
an engineering program said
Rogers said systems engi-
neering Is a unique engineering
program proven by research to
be successful.
"Systems engineering Is
really about solving problems.
It emphasizes the management
and design of a total system
Rogers said.
"The way we teach engineer-
ing as well as the engineers we
produce are going to be different
than you would find In many
other places
Rogers said the difference is
that In ECU's program, students
will be actively engaged in engi-
neering courses during their first
semesters, while at other uni-
versities, engineering students
spend their first semesters taking
math and science courses and do
not get involved in engineering
courses until their later semes-
ters. Rogers said this non-systems
engineering system causes a large
percentage of students to discon-
tinue the major before they are
exposed to engineering courses.
"Being an engineer is about
solving problems and delivering
a product, what we hope to do
is begin to have students work
on real projects and seeing real
solutions starting from their
freshman year
In ECU's systems engineering
program, Rogers said, the engi-
neering students will be grouped
together in the same courses not
only for the engineering, but for
math and science courses as well.
This system, which is not com-
monly used by other universities,
will Increase engineering student
opportunities to work together
in teams, giving them a more
real world engineering workplace
"This Is the way engineers
really work - in teams Rogers
Research in engineering edu-
cation, Rogers said, has found
this system to be very successful
In keeping students in engineer-
ing, especially for females and
minority groups as engineering
has in the past been a white male
dominated major. Rogers said the
research conducted has shown
this system to increase the reten-
tion rate of engineering students
by 10 - 25 percent.
Rogers said ECU'S systems
engineering program will not
only benefit ECU as it attracts
an increased number and variety
of students, but eastern North
Carolina will also benefit from
the program.
Businesses see engineering as
a resource for technical expertise
which there is a demand for in
eastern North Carolina. As far
as economic development in the
region, Rogers said an increased
amount of engineers would
make a good asset for Incoming
businesses, which will in turn
benefit the overall marketing in
the region.
Before ECU was approved to
begin the program, North Caro-
lina State University officials and
members of the North Carolina
Board of Governors voiced con-
cerns about the new program.
Issues raised Included how the
new program would affect ECU's
demand for state funding and
competition for engineering
resources in North Carolina.
Rogers said as the new pro-
gram expands, there would even-
tually be a need for more money
to carry on and expand the
However, he does not see
money being an issue in the
foreseeable years. ECU'S systems

cafe, allowing visitors to snack in
certain areas of the library. Food
regulations are still enforced in
the North Carolina Collection
on the third floor, the Special
Collections on the fourth floor,
the Music Library in Fletcher
Music Building and in areas
with surrounding computers
and other electronics. Joyner's
Java City makes sure to serve
each beverage with a lid hoping
to reduce any accidents, but the
public service desks have the
necessary materials available to
clean any spills.
The new cafe operates closely
in conjunction with the library,
opening 30 minutes after and
closing 30 minutes before the
library each day, and the cafe
plans on remaining open with
Joyner for 24 hours during exam
time to ensure student and fac-
ulty needs are met.
Concerns were taken into
consideration when planning
for the new addition. These con-
cerns included the student and
faculty expectations for Joyner
Library to have a quiet atmo-
sphere fit for studying which may
be disrupted with the noise of
blenders and customers at the
cafe. The cafe should not be a
problem because It is in an appro-
priate location.
"(Java City is in a hallway, so
I don't think it's too distracting"
said Stacy Alfred, junior clinical
lab major.
Employees at Java City are sat-
isfied with the location. Alfred,
a former employee at the Pirate
Market on College Hill said she
transferred to the new Java City
because it is conveniently located
near her classes.
Library employees also
reacted positively from the cafe.
Librarians enjoy it because they
have to wake up early in the
morning for work and the cafe
is easily accessible, said Kareena
Detwiler, librarian and freshman
graphic design major.
"It adds a fun twist to the
library and gives students and
faculty a fun option when on a
study break said Tara Owens,
junior social work major.
Joyner Library will not be the
last building on ECU's campus to
start serving coffee. Clutter said
there are plans to have a Java
City in the Allied Health Nursing
building by 2006 and another
location on West Campus in the
near future.

such as engineering laboratories.
Rogers also adds that the pro-
gram plans on seeking funding
from other outside sources and
will not be solely dependent on
state funding.
"We need to find
philanthropy, we need to
find the ability to do outside
research to find other sources
of income Rogers said.
"I don't believe looking
to the state to solve all of our
needs will be successful
While the only
concentration in the new
engineering program is
systems engineering, Rogers said
as the program expands other
concentrations will be made
available to students besides
systems engineering. This
increase in size, Rogers said,
will also allow the program to
receive an increased amount of
funding from ECU.
Despite the concerns
voiced by North Carolina State
University officials, Nino
Masmari, dean of the college
of engineering at NCSU said
from page A2
he does not feel ECU's new
program will propose a major
threat In receiving state fund-
ing and resources. Masmari
said he feels the main deter-

About 217,000 have switched
numbers from landline to wire-
less phones, and about 5,400
transitioned numbers from a

According to the FCC,
about 70 percent of the popula-

roughly 30 percent of people
left to take advantage of It. But

News Briefs
North Carolina gets soaked at
remnants of storm blows north
RALEIGH, NC (AP) - Central North
Carolina was drenched Monday by
the remains of Tropical Storm Gaston,
the fourth named storm to strike the
state this month, as thousands of
customers In the Carolinas waited
for their power to be restored.
Up to 6 inches of rain was likely in
parts of North Carolina and flash
flood warnings were posted. The
storm already had poured as much
as 10 Inches on the Charleston, SC,
area on Sunday after blowing ashore.
While the Carolinas cleared away
downed trees and waited for flooded
streets to drain, residents were being
told to keep an eye on Hurricane
Frances, a powerful storm heading
across the Atlantic toward the
Caribbean with 120 mph winds.
Residents "from Florida to the
Carolinas should start monitoring the
progress of this storm Hugh Cobb, a
meteorologist atthe National Hurricane
Center In Miami, said of Frances.
South Carolina officials said there
was only one initial report of a
serious Injury caused by Gaston - a
Charleston County resident Injured
by a falling tree. In North Carolina,
there was a report of one person
killed on a rain-slippery highway but
the state Highway Patrol couldn't
immediately confirm It.
More than 6,500 customers were
without power Monday in North
Carolina. The National Weather
Service said portions of Chatham
and western Johnston counties had
already received 2 to 3 inches of rain
by 8 am Wind blew at 15 mph to 25
mph with gusts to 32 mph.
Edwards accuses Bush of
miscalculating U.S. foreign policy
NEW YORK (AP) - Vice presidential
candidate John Edwards on Monday
accused the Bush administration of
making the nation less secure by
miscalculating U.S. foreign policy,
serving as the Democrats' critical
voice on the opening day of the
Republican National Convention.
"Their failed leadership at home
and abroad means that they cannot
deal with the new threats we face
Edwards said in remarks prepared for
delivery In Wilmington, N.C.
The North Carolina senator said a
Kerry administration would create a
"Nuclear Whistleblower Initative" in
which the United States would give
asylum and protection to any scientist
in a foreign country - particularly Iran
and North Korea - who discloses an
illicit weapons program.
"These countries were labeled as
part of an 'axis of evil Yet, two-and-
a-half years later, the administration
has stood on the sidelines while they
advanced their nuclear programs
Edwards said. "In fact, during the past
three years, the threats from North
Korea and Iran's nuclear programs
have only gotten worse. This is a
failure of American diplomacy. A
president must do more than shrug
his shoulders when confronted with
these dangers
Attacks bring Iraq's key southern
oil exports to a haft
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) - Oil exports from
southern Iraq have been brought to a
complete halt, a senior oil official said
Monday, following a spate of pipeline

to undermine the nation's interim
Also Monday, firebrand Shilte cleric
Muqtada al-Sadr visited the Imam Ali
Shrine in the city of Najaf for the first
time since his militia left the holy site
on Friday under a peace deal to end
three weeks of fighting with U.S. forces.
Al-Sadr had asked religious
authorities for permission to enter the
shrine, where his Mahdi Army militia
had holed up during the violence
in Naaf, and he briefly went In on
Monday, according to the office of
Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, Iraq's
top Shiite cleric.
Oil flows out of the southern pipelines
- which account for 90 percent of
Iraq's exports - ceased late Sunday
and were not likely to resume for
at least a week, two senior officials
from South Oil Co. said on condition
of anonymity.
"Oil exports from the port of Basra
have completely stopped since last
night one official said Monday.
No oil was being pumped Monday
through Iraq's northern export lines
to the Turkish port of Ceyhan as well,
according to an oil official in Ceyhan.

Our View
As the fall semester commences, TEC
would like to welcome all new freshmen and
transfer students, as well as returning
students, faculty and staff.
As the new academic year begins, it's
important to remember that we, students and
faculty members alike, share a common thread
- we all love ECU. .
For students, some of their fondest memories
will be made as they share a table with friends
at Todd Dining Hall each night.
For faculty members, many years of servi-
tude will be devoted to the betterment of the
academic standards and the university's
reputation as an institution of higher learning.
Regardless, there are thousands of people who
are a part of something biggerthan themselves
- they are a part of ECU.
Fall is the ideal time to recognize just how lucky
we are to be a part of this community. This is
an exciting time to be at ECU.
From theatre, athletics, events from ECU'S
many campus and student organizations and
continued construction, activities are sure to
We encourage you to read TEC each Tuesday,
Wednesday and Thursday for news, sports and
entertainment events that are happening on
ECU'S campus and throughout the surround-
ing community.
TEC's staff would also like to encourage you to
send us your opinions, whether it's in response
to something we've covered or not covered,
or in regard to other events that are affecting
Your voice is important to us, whether it be

Hail and salutations, fellow
ECUians. Hopefully everyone had a
chance to recharge their batteries (and
brains) before classes started and are
now prepared to tackle all of life's chal-
lenges, big and small.
Normally when you come to this
page you are graced with the opinions
of the various contributing columnists.
This time, I thought I'd try something
different. 1 thought I would solicit your
opinions on a few matters.

Are you up to it? OK, here is the
question: Where are all the liberals?
Let me elaborate.
In Afghanistan, the first country
that was liberated in the war on terror,
there will be a free election shortly.
Current early estimates are that 41 per-
cent of the population has registered to
vote in the upcoming election, includ-
ing millions of women who will be
voting for the first time. Additionally,
the draconian restrictions women and
girls were forced to endure are being
lifted, thereby improving their lives
immeasurably. This would never have
happened if the country had not been
Since we all know that women's
rights and free elections are sacred
scripture for liberals, why have we not
heard praises being sung for President
Bush and the United States? Why the
Where are all the liberals?
The United States under Bill Clin-
ton's leadership sent troops to numer-
ous countries to overthrow despots,
stop genocide and various other reasons
repeatedly. American troops are still
in some of those countries. Each time
there was an outpouring of Hosannas
from the liberals even though there has
been little or nothing to show for the
expense in lives or money.
In Iraq, another liberated country,
a vicious dictator was overthrown. A
dictator who for years openly executed
people on a whim, personally tortured
people, had subordinates whose job it
was to kidnap, rape and kill women
and children, often as the husband or
father was forced to watch, and who
committed mass murder and genocide
against his own people and neighbor-
ing countries with conventional and
chemical weapons.
There are now more than 27 million
people who no longer live in constant
fear for their lives, women and children
are safe from government sponsored
rape and murder and like Afghanistan,
Iraqis will shortly have a voice in how
their country is run and by whom.
Where are all the Hosannas now?
Where are all the liberals?
Closer to home, we have presiden-
tial hopeful John Kerry, who in testi-
mony before Congress after his return
from Vietnam, under oath, stated that
he committed war crimes. Yet John
Kerry now states that he is qualified to
be president because of his four-month
service in Vietnam more than 35 years
ago when he committed war crimes.
A group of decorated war
heroes, the Swift Boat Vets, have
challenged John Kerry's accounts of
his Vietnam service. They state he
has lied about certain events, falsi-
fied official documents concerning
combat operations and injury reports
as well as numerous other things. They
have done this in the form of a book,
radio and TV ads. How has John Kerry
Instead of confronting his fellow
vets he has tried to shut them up.
His lawyers sent letters to bookstores
requesting that they not carry the book
or that they move it to the fiction sec-
tion. They openly suggested that the
publisher not.print the book. They
sent letters to radio and television sta-
tions threatening to sue them for libel
if they ran the Swift Boat ads. This is
These veterans fought for and were
decorated by their country. They are
Democrats, Independents, Repub-
licans, or not interested in politics.
More importantly, they are Americans
and have the same free speech rights
as every other American. John Kerry
and his people are trying to deny them
those rights.
The First Amendment guarantee of
free speech is supposedly highly cher-
ished by liberals. Yet when John Kerry
and his people try to censor decorated
veterans, well, you already know the
Where are all liberals?
While there are so many more
examples, this will do. Now it is your
turn. I would really like your opin-

Purple. More than 800 new stu-
dents gathered at the Sonic Plaza two
weekends ago to participate in a novel
once-in-a lifetime event - Walk the
Plank - as they now become part of
our ECU community. Gold. More than
1,000 faculty and staff gathered at con-
vocation a week ago as they welcomed
not only our new chancellor, but also
new faculty to campus. Go Pirates!
More than 5,000 students participated
in our annual Pirate Palooza event
before classes started - our largest
attendance ever!
EC You Look So Good To Me.
In less than three weeks, what do we
believe contributes to this growing
infusion of excitement and involve-
ment among many different groups
on campus? I discovered the more I
immersed myself in these activities,
especially in the chanting, cheering
and celebrating, it not only increased
my feeling of being connected to
something much bigger than myself
but it rekindled within me what the
true sense of community is at ECU
where no one is left behind or forgotten
where every voice and every person
matters. We refer to this as the spirit of
"ohana" in Hawaii.
Purple. When we consider that
we are now a campus of more than
23,000, there is something to be said
about our ability to retain what makes
us unique (ohana) without losing
sight of who we are. As I watched how
Chris Knighten and our ECU Marching
Band got 600 students on their feet
as they learned our ECU cheers; and
as I listened to Professor Henry Ferrell
speak about the history of ECU and our
traditions, I also learned something
invaluable that night about who we
Gold. In listening to our new
chancellor speak about his vision for
ECU - to be bold and known for our
aspirations not our fears, I was inspired.
As I heard him use several magical
words to describe what we can be at
ECU, such as "igniting" our ability
to be "catalysts" for growth within
the region where our students and
their learning come first, it not only
moved me but many other faculty and
staff. Also, as he continued to speak
to us about the importance of our
institutional Integrity, accountability
and his commitment to diversity, this
reaffirmed to many that perhaps we
have rediscovered our "true north" as
an institution where we can actualize
our mission to serve our students and
our communities in new and meaning-
ful ways via our innovative teaching,
research and service.
Go Pirates! As more than 5,000
students and a host of local community
merchants came out to support our
annual Pirate Palooza event (which was
staffed by more than 100 volunteers
from our faculty, staff, student groups
and administration) - we witnessed
something phenomenal occur. When
you can bring the entire campus com-
munity into a fun event where they can
celebrate together, we then break down
the boundaries that may otherwise
separate us both inside and outside of
the classroom.
EC You Look So Good To Me!
So as we consider what is contributing
to our greater sense of excitement and
involvement on campus, perhaps it is
because we are now looking at ourselves
differently. While it may have been
challenging for us to see the light at
the end of the tunnel associated with
all the changes with our past, I believe
it has helped fortify us for what we
can focus on in the present and for
the future.
As our Chancellor reinforced the
message that "tomorrow starts here
I believe that these are the times that
now call us all to come together to act
boldly, to go where this university has
never gone before. And when we can do
it together, where no one is left behind
or forgotten well, what are we wait-
ing for? Go Pirates!

safer for future generations. But
he suggested an all-out victory

Asked "Can we win?" Bush
said, "I don't think you can win
it. But I think you can create con-
ditions so that the - those who
use terror as a tool are less accept-
able in parts of the world
Democrats, looking for ways
to deflect the spotlight from
Republicans as they opened their
convention in York, pounced.
"After months of listening
to the Republicans base their
campaign on their singular
ability to win the war on terror,
the president now says we can't
win the war on terrorism said
Democratic vice presidential
candidate John Edwards. "This is
no time to declare defeat
"The war on terrorism is
absolutely winnable Edwards
said later on ABC's "Nightline
"I decided a year ago that he
cannot win the war on terror
said retired Gen. Merrill McPeak,
former Air Force chief of staff, at
a news conference in New York
organized by Democrats.
White House spokesman
Scott McClellan sought to clarify
the president's remarks, telling
reporters, "He was talking about
winning it in the conventional
sense about how this is a dif-
ferent kind of war and we face an
unconventional enemy
"To suggest that the war on
terror can't be won is absolutely
unacceptable said Sen. Joseph
Biden, D-Del the senior Demo-
crat on the Senate Foreign Rela-
tions Committee.
"First George W. Bush said
he miscalculated the war in Iraq,
then he called it a catastrophic
success and blamed the military
said John Kerry spokeswoman
Allison Dobson. "Now he says
we can't win the war on terror. Is
that what Karl Rove means when
he calls for steady leadership?"
Meanwhile Rove, Bush's chief
political strategist, acknowledged
that the continuing conflict in
Iraq could be a political liability
in key swing states such as Penn-
sylvania, Florida and Arizona.
"We're in a war, so you got a
lot of people who say, 'I don't like
the fact that we're in a war. But I
want to win the war Rove said
in an interview In New York with
Pennsylvania reporters.
The coordinated Democratic
attack came as Republicans
sought to portray Bush as a
strong leader in the war on ter-
rorism in the opening session of
the Republican National Con-
Bush suggested in an inter-
view with Time magazine that
he still would have gone into
Iraq but with different tactics if
he had known "that an enemy
that should have surrendered or
been done In escaped and lived
to fight another day
He called the swift military
offensive that led to the fall of
Baghdad in April 2003 "a cata-
strophic success" in light of the
fact that fighting continues to
this day despite the overthrow of
Saddam Hussein's government.
Speaking in Nashua, Bush
praised a 3.9 percent unemploy-
ment rate that is considerably
below the national average of
5.5 percent, below other states
in the region and below New
Hampshire's July 2003 rate of
4.3 percent. "It's dropping every

Later, in Taylor, Mich he
acknowledged at a rally before
thousands of supporters that

July's unemployment rate of 6.8
percent in Michigan was tied
with Oregon for second-highest
after Alaska.
He charged that Kerry's long-
time support for raising automo-
tive fuel-economy standards
would worsen the state's unem-
ployment. Kerry's campaign
rejected that.
Bush "is trying to mislead
Michigan voters on Kerry's plan
to increase fuel efficiency said
Kerry spokesman Phil Singer.
Kerry would provide $1 billion to
help plants convert to make the
autos of the future, Singer said.
"Kerry will ensure that the
energy-efficient cars of the
future are made in Michigan.

Names In the News:
A $25 million lawsuit in which a
Texas teenager alleged she was
raped after appearing on Maury
Povich's syndicated TV show has
been tossed out by a New York
appeals court.
The girt charged that Povich and
his tasteful talkfest, "Maury were
responsible for her rape by a
limo driver hours after she taped
a December 2001 Povich show
about "out-of-control teens She
was 14 at the time and, according
to court papers, had been advised
by the show's producers to look
and act "provocatively" and
"sexually" and to talk about her
adult lovers on the show. She
said she was raped by a man
who claimed to be "Maury's limo
driver Maury and its producer,
NBC Universal, said the man was
not affiliated with the show.
The appellate court's decision
reversed a ruling last year by New
York State Supreme Court Justice
Diane Lebedeff that the girl was
still operating under the show's
travel arrangements when the
alleged attack occurred.
Promises, Promises
A young star on the rise Is sticking
with a boy her age. That would
be the genuinely likable Lindsay
Lohan, who is sporting a ring from
her 24-year-old honey, Wllmer
Valderrama. But before you get
all antsy, know that the 18-year-
old "Mean Girls" actress' new
bling is just a "promise ring" and
signifies no Impending nuptials.
What precisely the Venezuelan
American star of "That 70s Show"
promised Lohan is unknown.
Captain Unclogged
Patrick Stewart, 64, who played
Capt. Jean-Luc Plcard on "Star
Trek: The Next Generation
underwent a "preemptive"
angioplasty this week to widen an
artery, his publicist said Friday.
Reflections On Porn
i Cuthbert, who stars in Fox's
'ama "24" ope up to Sync '
azine about ner complex
feelings on her film role In the
porn-themed comedy The Girl
Next Door Cuthbert plays a
pom star that moves next door
to a sweet teenage boy, fulfilling
some of his less-than-lnnocent
fantasies. fThey end up falling in
love in a sweet, unporn kind of
way, though.)
Cuthbert says that after making
the movie, she was warmly
received by pom-Industry pros:
"They come up and talk to me.
They're always very sweet and
supportive In an analogy that is
either naive and meaningless or
just plain grody, she said the film
is "like what Pretty Women was for
hookers. They're really jazzed
Courting Solidarity
Oprah Winfrey worked through
her recent experiences serving
on a jury In a Chicago murder
trial by having fellow jurors on
her show Thursday. She said she
wouldn't want to repeat the task
- the panel convicted 27-year-
old Dion Coleman of the 2002
shooting death of Walter Holley.
23, over a counterfeit $50 bill - but
she enjoyed sharing warmth and
camaraderie with jurors.
The segment's highlight was a
testament to that camaraderie.
One of Winfrey's fellow jurors
said the billionaire talk-show
queen asked them all to sing
whenever she went to the rest
room adjoining the jury room to,
uh, you know, drown out the noise
and ease the embarrassment
of it all. Winfrey verified the tale,
saying one of the songs they sang
was that ultimate celebration of
comradeship, "Kumbaya
Oh Cod, it's Ellen!
Ellen DeGeneres is getting a
promotion to Supreme Being.
The comedian will star as
God in a remake of the 1977
comedy "Oh, God The original
starred George Bums as the
creator and John Denver as a
supermarket manager tapped
as a new prophet.
"Ellen Is a strong comedian and
she has always done material
about God and questions about
God said Jerry Weintraub, who
produced the original movie.
New restaurants opening soon in Greenville
A new Starbucks Coffee shop is located on Arlington.
Great new places to
hang out and eat well
When you're not looking,
new developments are popping
up all over Greenville. Whether
these developments are new
stores, service providers or res-
taurants, visiting that location for
the first time is always exciting.
Recently, Greenville has grown
and there are new establishments
everywhere you turn. Sometimes
students are so caught up in
school or work they don't take
time to look around and see what
is going on. Since January, the
town of Greenville has acquired
many new restaurants to nourish
ECU students and town residents.
While some of these restaurants
are still in the building stages,
knowing what to expect is nice.
While most students were
studying and working during
the spring semester, there
were many new restaurants
established in Greenville. Off
10th Street, by the intersection
of Greenville Boulevard, there
is a nice, new, clean Subway for
students to enjoy.
There is plenty of park-
ing and the location is very
convenient to many large
apartment complexes. The
employees are friendly and
the three-foot long subs for
$11.99 is not a bad deal. The
more you eat there, the more
free sub stamps you get! The
commercials on television say,
"Eat Fresh and that really is
the case for students who want
fast food but don't want the
The new Fuddruckers Is slowly starting to take shape next to Carmike's Cinema on Firetower Road.
Along the ECU Transit
Authority's Blue Bus Line, there
are great cuisine options as well.
Located in the Best Buy shopping
center are some eating options
many students haven't explored.
In January, Ledo Pizza and Pasta
was established by Joe and Linda
Searles to serve Italian food with
a fresh twist on ingredients.
Manager Paul Searles graduated
from ECU'S hospitality program
and is always excited when stu-
dents come in the restaurant.
Ledo Pizza and Pasta will be drop-
ping off free pizza in dormitories
on the ECU campus during the
fall semester, so look out for great,
free pizza!
Right next to Ledo Pizza and
Pasta is the China King Chinese
Restaurant. This upscale Chi-
nese Restaurant has something
for everyone. Their menu is
diverse and the service is friendly.
Construction is well underway for the new Olive Garden.
Greenville has many walk-in
Chinese restaurants but this fine,
new, sit-down Chinese experi-
ence is a true delight for students
who want a true ethnic meal.
For a special evening out,
Bellagio, located at the corner of
Red Banks Road and Arlington,
gives the guest a homey, yet
trendy feel, plus has a full service
bar in the back of the restaurant.
This is a great place for romantic
dates over candlelight.
Along Greenville Boulevard,
many new restaurants popped
up during spring. Libby Hill Sea-

Places to eat on campus
Campus Dining offers
convenience, variety
Eating on campus is not as
painful as many students make
it out to be. No matter what you
crave, there is something on
campus to satisfy your hunger.
In fact, variety is one of the finer
points of dining at ECU.
The two major spots to
eat are Todd and Mendenhall
Dining Halls. They both offer
buffet-style meals. The dining
halls offer grilled items, which
include hamburgers, hotdogs,
fries and a campus favorite,
grilled cheese sandwiches.
You will also find a full salad
bar, soup kettles and a dessert
bar complete with ice cream and
low-fat yogurt, for those of you
trying to avoid the "Freshmen
IS Both facilities serve break-
fast, lunch and dinner Monday -
Friday. Todd is located on College
Hill and Mendenhall is located
on West campus beside the
student recreational center.
If you're stuck on campus
most of the day, chances are you
won't be trekking back to the Hill
or West campus for food between
classes. In that case, you have
a couple of options. The first is
The Croatan, which is located
on East campus. The Croatan
houses Chick-fil-A, as well as the
Buccaneer Grill. The Buccaneer
Grill offers different types of
burgers and seasoned fries.
If you don't feel like chicken,
then you could go over to the
Wright Place. It's located in the
middle of campus in the same
building as the Dowdy Student
Store. There is a Java City where
they supply all your coffee, tea
or latte needs. If it's down home
cooking you crave, try the bar-
beque, macaroni and cheese and
other home cooked fixings the
Wright Place has to offer. The
Wright Place is also the home
of Montague's deli and Bene
For those of you who get
late night cravings, there's
something for you too. The Galley
and Pirate Market, located on the
first floor of Jones Hall, and The
Spot, located in Mendenhall
Student Center, stay open late
just in case you miss dinner at
the dining hall or just want a
midnight snack. Pirate Market is
a full convenience store, while
The Spot is part convenience
store, part pizzeria, part taco
stand and part grill. As you can
see, you should never get bored
eating on campus. The Galley has
Asia Express, which serves a wide
variety of oriental cuisine.
Even the SRC doesn't leave
you out to dry. After you finish a
grueling workout, head down to
Center Court, which is located in
the SRC. They offer smoothies,
pretzels and a snack bar.
Sometimes students don't
go to the recreation center to
work out.
"Half the time I don't work
out. I ust go to the SRC to get a
smoothie said Natalie Williams,
a senior family and community
service major.
If you're a fan of lean
cuisine, take advantage of Campus
Dining's All Foods Fit selections.
These foods are offered in every
location and meet the American
Heart Association's dietary guide-
lines for healthy eating.
Just when you thought your
food service needs were filled,
dining services decides to add
three more places to better serve
students. The first addition is
the new Java City located in the
Library. Now you can have some
caffeine for those late night study
groups. Coming in December will
be the Italian restaurant, Sbarro,
that will be located in The Wright
Place. The new West End Dining
Hall will open in the spring of
2005, and will offer a state of the
art all-you-care-to-eat restaurant,
convenience store and a Subway.
The dining halls also offer
several theme meals through-
out the year. There is always a
Christmas and Thanksgiving
dinner. Last year, they hosted

ECU offers wide variety of free services
Ways for students to
get most out of
their tuition money
If the South is famous for
its hospitality, then perhaps
ECU should be known for its
services. The university offers
free assistance to students to aid
them in their personal, academic
and professional lives.
Center for Counseling and
Student Development
Because personal issues
often do interfere with one's
academics, it is important to
deal with, and solve them before
they lead to greater problems
in other areas. This is where
the Center for Counseling and
Student Development comes in.
Located on the second floor of
the Wright Building, accessed
through a side door between
Wright Auditorium and the
Wright PlaceStudent Stores,
the center offers individual
counseling, couples counseling,
groups and workshops. There
are also psychiatrists available to
provide medication evaluations,
consultation and prescriptions,
if necessary.
Students can call to schedule
an appointment during the week,
but emergencies may be seen on
a walk-in basis.
The counseling process,
whether it is an individual
session, with a significant other
or a group, is a way to explore
issues, learn new coping methods
and ultimately, increase personal
Academic Advising Center
Although the Academic
Advising Center is in charge
of the Freshman Seminar, this
unit is available to help all
undergraduates with their
academic questions and goals.
Students who are undecided
or reconsidering majors are
especially encouraged to make an
appointment with an advisor or
drop in at the center, located in
A-113 Brewster Building.
Advisors help students
explore majors and develop a
course plan to reach a degree
in a particular field. If someone
in this office cannot answer a
question, they will guide
a student to the appropriate
resource in order to make the
most of his or her academic
Joyner Library Reference
The Reference Desk at Joyner
Library doesn't have all the
answers. Instead, they have
the means to help you locate
whatever it is you're looking for.
The reference librarians are
available to assist students in
finding information, even if
it means just pointing them
in the right direction for their
To set up an individual
research consultation lasting
approximately one half hour,
students may submit an e-mail
request or call the Reference Desk
during the week.
Appointments may be
scheduled for Monday - Thursday
or Sunday afternoons. Once the
Reference Department receives a
request, they will contact the stu-
dent to confirm the date and time
for an individual consultation.

Center might help alleviate the
Created primarily to help
support students in Writing
Intensive courses, the University
Writing Center offers one-on-one
tutorial sessions designed to help
students learn how to correct
their own mistakes and improve
their writing.
The Writing Center staff
will not write a paper for you,
however, they will listen to
what you say in order to help
you express your own ideas on
paper. The staff is made up of
graduate and undergraduate
students from a variety of disci-
plines, all of whom have received
intensive instruction in how
to teach writing, revising ai.J.
editing skills.
There is not one particular
site for the center. It is located in
numerous buildings throughout
campus, and operates on a walk-
in basis with no appointment
necessary. However, when stop-
ping by, it is important to take a
copy of the writing assignment
with which you are having dif-
ficulty and any work that you
have already completed.
English 1100 and 1200
students should take their
assignment and visit the First
Year Writing Studio in the
department of English.
Upon entrance, a staff
member will meet with you for
30 - 40 minutes to go over any
major concerns, brainstorm and
formulate a plan of what to do
next. After, you may make an
appointment to meet with your
consultant again or choose to
gain a different perspective by
meeting with a different staff
member in the future.

This year the ECULoessin
Playhouse will be putting on
several productions. There
will be a variety of plays and
musicals to appeal to
everyone. Each year the
cast is carefully chosen, and
many hours of hard work and
dedication are put into each
and eveiy show . So this year be
sure to express your support and
attend as many productions as
The ffrst show will be the
musical Hair. This rock
musical takes the theme from
the sixties and seventies, where
war, drug-use and racism
were all controversial issues.
Hair radiates many questions
of both moral and self-values;
not only back in the 1960s and
1970s, but also in today's soci-
ety. This musical contains 24
amazing numbers including:
"East to Be Hard" and "Good
Morning Starshine The show
displays a variation of viewpoints
which allows the audience to
understand and even feel
the love, pain and issues of
that time period. Hair will
be held at McGinnis Theatre
Sept. 30 - Oct. 5.
November 18 - 23 the ECU
Loessin Playhouse will be per-
forming The Children's Hour.
When a school for girls is run by
only two women, trouble is close
by. A spiteful student starts a
rumor about both of the women,
consequently engaging the
women in a tragedy! Soon, but
not quite soon enough, the
rumor is found to be untrue.
The damage that had been done
can not be taken back. This
play written by Lillian Hellman
distinctly expresses a great
moral, not only to the young
girl, but to everyone who receives
the opportunity to see this
wonderful production.
A combination of ballet,
jazz, modern and tap-dance are
presented to you all on one
stage in Dance 2005. The
faculty and staff of ECU'S
School of Theatre and
Dance have choreographed
each step. This upbeat, eccentric
and sometimes serious show
has become popular among
all who appreciate good music

tic comedy As You Like It by
William Shakespeare opens
April 14 - 19. When a young girl

him over. Rosalind confesses
her feelings only to be crushed
when Orlando does not feel
the same way. Needless to say
Rosalind did not take "no" for

little too well! How she gets

Women's Soccer
Game Postponed
The women's soccer contest
between East Carolina and
UNC Wilmington, scheduled
for Sunday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. at
UNCW Soccer Stadium, was
postponed due to Tropical Storm
Gaston. There has been no make-
up date announced as both
schools are in the process of
discussing alternate dates. The
Pirates will be back In action
Friday, Sept. 3, when they host
Georgia Southern In the home
opener at Bunting Field with a 4
p.m. start time scheduled.
Warner named Giants
starter against Eagles
Eli Manning remains the New York
Giants' quarterback of the future.
For now, the job belongs to Kurt
Warner. Briefly citing Warner's
experience and recent play, coach
Tom Coughlin announced Sunday
the two-time MVP had beaten out
the No. 1 pick In the NFL Draft
for the starting job in the season
opener at Philadelphia on Sept.
12. The choice wasn't surprising
in the wake of Thursday's 17-7
loss to the Jets. Warner played
well and Manning did not during
his worst day on the field since
signing a $45 million contract In
late July. Warner hit 9 of 11 passes
for 104 yards, leading the Giants
to their only touchdown against
the Jets. Manning was 4 of 14 for
20 yards, with two interceptions
and a fumble that was returned
for a Jets touchdown. Coughlin's
decision puts Manning In a
backup role for the first time
since his redshirt freshman year at
Mississippi in 2000, when Romaro
Miller started.
Priest costs marathon
runner gold medal
A defrocked Irish priest with
a history of disrupting sports
events was given a one-year
suspended sentence and fined
$3,600 Monday for grabbing
a runner who was leading the
Olympic marathon with three
miles to go. Cornelius Horan was
convicted by a misdemeanor
court of violating Greece's laws on
extracurricular sports for knocking
Vanderlel de Lima Into the crowd
on Sunday. De Lima continued
running, but he soon lost his
lead and finished third. Horan, 57,
was wearing a green beret, red
kilt and knee-high green socks
when he pushed de Lima. Horan,
who apologized to the court, was
told he would have to serve the
sentence if he violated any other
laws in Greece In the next three
years. He was expected to return
home to London,
Curacao wins Little
League World Series
Carlos Pineda struck out 11 and
Jurickson Profar hit a two-run
homer as Pabao Little League
of Wlllemstad, Curacao, took
an early lead and held on for a
5-2 victory over Conejo Valley
of Thousand Oaks, Calif In
the Little League World Series
championship on Sunday night.
Teams from Curacao reached
the international final game the
previous three years, but lost
each time to a team from Japan.
It was the first Little League title for
the tiny island in the Netherlands
Antilles, and the first for any team
from the Caribbean.
South Korean gymnast
appeals judging result
South Korea made a last-ditch
push for the gymnastics gold
medal given to Paul Hamm,
appealing to sports' international
arbitration panel to say "yes" when
everyone else has said "no way
Only hours before the Olympics
ended Sunday, Yang Tae-Young
asked the Court of Arbitration
for Sport to order international
gymnastics officials to correct the
results from the all-around, and
adjust the medal rankings so he
gets gold and the American gets a
silver. But U.S. Olympic Committee
spokesman Darryl Selbel said
the appeal was a moot point.
The International Gymnastics
Federation, known as FIG, has
already said It won't change its
results, and the International
Olympic Committee has refused
to even consider the idea of
giving Yang a gold medal. Yang,
who finished with a bronze, was
wrongly docked a tenth of a point
on his second-to-last routine,
the parallel bars. He finished
third, 0.049 points behind Hamm.
The time is now for the Pirates
ECU returns to gridiron after
impressive off-season
One year removed from a
1-11 season, Head Coach John
Thompson and the Pirates are
kicking off the 2004 season with
a renewed sense of pride.
Whether the Pirates win two,
six or 10 games this season is still
to be determined, but one thing
is for certain, ECU is a vastly
improved team.
Armed with new uniforms, a
talented incoming class and the
return of Art Brown to comple-
ment Marvin Townes, the Pirates
are hoping a new look and feel
will translate into success.
The biggest addition to the
offense will be running back
Art Brown. The senior tailback
rushed for more than 1,000 yards
in 2002 before being sidelined
with an injury last season. Fellow
senior Marvin Townes stepped
in to become the 12th running
back in ECU history to tally 1,000
yards on the ground.
The talented duo will be the
focus of the Pirates'offensive attack.
"Art (Brown) is a qual-
ity running back, an every
down back said Thompson.
"Having both of those guys
back makes a big difference
Brown has been practicing at
100 percent after taking it slow
earlier in the summer.
"I'm excited for the team and
what we have going this year
said Brown.
"I'm excited for the players
and glad to be back on the team.
There's going to be a lot of chance
for guys to step up and make
plays in our offense
"Me and Marvin (Townes),
Chris Johnson and some other
guys will be in the backfield
Brown said discussing the pack-
ages the offense will implement
during the season.
Perhaps the biggest question
Wide receiver Bobby Good (left) and quarterback Desmond Robinson (right) performed well In all the Pirates' summer
scrimmages. ECU will open up their season on Saturday in Morgantown, Va. as they take on West Virginia.
going into the off-season is who
will be handing the ball off to
one of the deepest backfields in
the country. Desmond Robinson
performed well at times with
accuracy last season, but James
Pinkney started the last several
games of his freshman campaign.
Throw Florida trans-
fer Patrick Dosh into the mix
and you have a full-fledged
quarterback controversy.
The controversy has been put
to rest however, after Pinkney was
promoted to the top of the depth
chart during summer workouts.
Pinkney proved Thompson made
the right decision in the team's
final scrimmage, throwing for
206 yards and two touchdowns
on 18 of 22 passing.
The inability to move the ball
proved to be ECU'S downfall in
2003. Gone is leading receiver
Terrance Copper, but Thompson
will have a solid nucleus of receiv-
ers with plenty of depth.
Senior Demarcus Fox has
emerged from summer practices
and scrimmages as the go-to
guy in offensive coordinator
Noah Brindise's more vertical
offense. Fox looks to be run-
ning much deeper routes than
the ECU receivers from a season
ago. Without the threat of the
long ball last season, opposing
defense could gear up for the
run with disregard for the deep
passing game.
"I think our offense is a lot
more open Thompson said.
"We're throwing the ball down
the field. Receivers are open, James
The biggest goal
Pirates loaded with
talent, determination
While most college kids
spend their summers working to
put themselves through school
or perhaps just make a few extra
bucks, the ECU men's soccer
team works in a different kind of
way - preparing for the rigorous
schedule that lies ahead of them
for the fall season.
Although the rewards are not
monetary, the goal this team has
set out to accomplish this year
has the potential to be far more
rewarding than receiving a pay-
check every two weeks. The Pirates
look to qualify for the Conference
USA tournament in one of the
nation's elite soccer conferences.
With the returnees and the
freshmen all sticking to the
workouts that were assigned to
them at the beginning of the
summer, the result has been
a solid preseason that has the
Pirate men poised to make a run
at postseason play.
Head Coach Michael Benn is
pleased with how things are shap-
ing up heading into the begin-
ning of the regular season.
"We did well in the pre-
season said Benn.
"We won one scrimmage and
tied another, so although we have
a very challenging conference
schedule, we're still certainly
looking forward to the fall
The Pirates' conference sched-
ule includes some of the nation's
most renowned soccer programs
such as St. Louis, who enters the
season as the 4th ranked team in
the nation, as well as UAB who
was named the nation's 25th best
team to start the 2004 campaign.
Annual powers Cincinnati and
Marquette are also key games
that will play part in determining
conference positioning for post-
season play.
Despite the greatness of C-
USA, Benn believes the confer-
ence race will be much closer
than preseason rankings and
numbers may indicate.
"One of the exciting things
about our conference, despite
how good it is, Is that on any
given day, anyone in our confer-
ence can beat anybody. And so,
every time we step out there in
Defenseman Rob Cann (10) will be one of five seniors leading
the way for a young but very talented 2004 ECU squad,
conference games, we feel we point of emphasis during drills
have a chance to win if we play
well Benn said.
Only six out of 10 conference
teams will qualify for the C-USA
tournament to be held in Louis-
ville, Ky. Therefore, ECU'S fight to
be in the top six may be decided
in a key stretch of home games
in early October against Depaul,
Charlotte and Marquette.
"Every game is going to be a
battle, and I believe that most of
the games will be decided in the
last couple of minutes
In order to come out on the
winning end of games that go down
to the wire, Benn believes that
winning the battle in the air could
decide the outcome of the game.
"It's absolutely vital that we
challenge well in the air on the
headers. It can set the tone for the
whole game, and if you can let
the other team know that you're
going to dominate that aspect
of the game, then some of the
headers won late could decide
the contest
One game decided on a
header could seal the Pirates'
fate as to whether or not they
will make the conference tour-
nament, so Benn uses that as a
in practice to prepare his boys
for those moments.
As if the drama in confer-
ence play wasn't enough, the
Pirates open up the season with
in-state rival UNC-Wilmington,
which is a school that has quickly
cemented themselves as a con-
tender against ECU in all sports,
not just on the soccer field, so
school pride will likely be at stake
as these two schools collide for
the first time in a season opener,
something that Benn says will
add even more flavor to the
already bitter match-up.
"We've never opened up with
them before so that's going to add
a little edge to it Benn said.
In the last five meetings
between ECU and UNC-W, the
contests have been decided by
one goal, so the regular season
should start off with some fire-
works on the field.
Some other notable non-con-
ference foes include Campbell,
Elon and High
Point, all of which fell victim
to the Pirates last season. The
Pirates will also travel to Duke
see SOCCER page C5
Townes, all without a legitimate
air attack.
But the men in the trenches
are a concern for the 2004 season.
Tackles Brian Rimpf, Bran-
don Pope and Corey Schimdt,
center Doug White and guard
Brian Fox have all departed.
Left guard Charlie Dempsey
returns as the only veteran line-
man and will team up with
starting guard Gary Freeman.
Defense is Thompson's forte,
but the swiss cheese "D" of a year
ago left more to be desired in
2004. The defensive line is a big
question mark with some solid
starters but a paper-thin depth
see FOOTBALL page C4
Pinkney is throwing well and our
offensive staff and Noah Brindise
is doing a great job with that
Thompson knows Fox will be
counted on to lead the inexperi-
enced wide outs, but hopes that
several others can step up and
take the pressure off as well.
"We've got to get some other
guys stepping up Thompson said.
"Demarcus (Fox) makes the tough
catches and can be a deep threat
"Will Bland is playing well,
Bobby Good is doing a good job.
Bryson Bowling and Kevin Roach
have had good camps
The most unheralded aspect
of ECU'S offense will look to
provide stability once again in
2004. The Pirate offensive line
paved the way for back-to-back
1,000-yard seasons for Brown and
McClellan hired
as new SID Director
Former GSU Eagle to
lead Sports Information
Tucked away in the depths of
the Ward Sports Medicine build-
ing is a man working vigorously
in preparation for the upcoming
athletic season. Few people will
know his name or notice all of
his hard work. As important as
his work is, there is simply not
enough time in the day for a man
like Tom McClellan.
McClellan is the newest and
one of the most important mem-
bers of the ECU athletic team. He
was hired by Nick Floyd, interim
athletics director, to become
director of athletic media rela-
tions. The void was created when
former sports information direc-
tor Craig Wells took another job.
"We sports information
directors act as an intermediary
between the coaching staff, stu-
dent-athletes, administrative staff
and the media. We are a bunch
of hats. We record and keep all
of the statistics, prepare and act
as editors on media guides, game
programs and now we have to be
the ambassadors of the Internet.
We have the job of telling the
story to people on the outside
about our respective schools and
attract interest in ECU athletics
said McClellan.
"This job is about calling and
e-mailing people back. It's about
doing the little things McClel-
lan said.
From setting up statistics
monitors on press row for
game days to the day-to-day
filtering through the creden-
tial requests, it all falls under
McClellan's job description.
McClellan has not earned
the job without hard work. He
received his B.A. in journalism
public relations at Sam Houston
State in Texas. After graduating,
McClellan worked with the Geor-
gia Southern Media Department
starting in 1988. He then left
to become sports information
director at Stetson University.
After leaving Stetson, McClel-
lan took over the department at
Georgia Southern in 1996 and
had held that post for the last
seven years.
McClellan traveled to numer-
ous baseball regionals while at
Stetson and Georgia Southern.
McClellan brings a positive
and personal touch to ECU.
McClellan's resume also includes
running an NCAA basketball
regional in 1996. While hold-
ing the post at GSU, McClellan
oversaw national exposure of the
football team that won two I-AA
national championships.
Adrian Peterson broke almost
every single rushing record in
I-AA while at Georgia South-
ern. He won the equivalent to
the Heisman at the I-AA level.
McClellan dealt with all of the
media requests and helped to
market Peterson, who became a
household name among college
football fans.
"We had some fun with him.
We made a CD, launched a Heis-
man campaign for him and he
actually got a couple of votes
McClellan said.
True to the McClellan's person-
ality, he helped Peterson struggle
through a speech impediment and
pronounced stuttering problem.
"We had to help him in not
only communicating with the
media, but to do well in his class
work and to handle himself in a
very critical society. To see him
grow through his hard work to
overcome his speech impedi-
ment made me more proud than
anything he did on the football
field McClellan said.
After seven years at Georgia
Southern, McClellan was ready
for a new challenge.
"There is a marked difference
between Division I-AA and I-A.
I had my eyes open walking on
campus here. Seeing what is on
the table here and the potential
ECU has, it's incredible the dif-
see MCCLELLAN page C3

McCallion and Schwanke look to lead Ladv Pirates
ECU women coming
off of fantastic spring
Momentum is one of the
most important aspects in sports.
No matter which sport is in ques-
tion, a team with momentum
can beat just about anyone. If
this holds true this year, expect
the women's soccer team to have
a great season.
The women built up a lot
of the momentum they needed
for this season last spring. After
finishing the 2003 campaign in
a heart breaking overtime loss to
Charlotte, the women dominated
their spring schedule. They posted
a 7-0-1 record and dominated on
both ends of the field.
The Lady Pirates enter this
season picked to finish ninth in
Conference USA for the second
consecutive year. Defending
champion UAB is predicted to
repeat as the conference cham-
pion while in state rival Char-
lotte is slotted to finish fifth.
The schedule for the ECU
women this fall also features
games against two ACC oppo-
nents, as well as home con-
ference games with DePaul,
Marquette, Tulane, South-
ern Miss and South Florida.
Coach Rob Donnenwirth's
biggest question mark this season
will be on the�defensive side of
the field. The Pirates graduated
virtually all of their defenders,
including Penny Perrott, C-USA's
co-defensive MVP last season.
The play of the defense this
season will be the difference in
many close games. The roster
features only one senior and no
juniors. The one senior in the
backfield, Megan Schwanke, will
need to anchor a young and inex-
perienced defensive unit.
However, if the opposing
attack gets by Schwanke and her
fellow defenders, they will run
into one of two experienced goal-
ies. Red shirt sophomore Lauren
Church was expected to be the
starter last season, but an injury
forced her to sit out the season.
The Pirates then looked to sopho-
more Undsi Troxler, who stepped
into the role as the number one
keeper. She recorded 70 saves
and 1.10 goals allowed average.
Troxler also posted four shutouts
on the season. The battle for the
start in goal will be interesting
to watch but whoever wins the
job will have a solid backup right
behind her.
The strongest part of the
Pirates this season will be the
play of the forwards.
Due to her play last season,
junior Meghan McCallion earned
preseason All-Conference USA
honors heading into this year
and is a lock to start up front for
Donnenwirth's attack. McCal-
lion has scored an amazing 20
goals in her first two seasons as
a Lady Pirate. As of now, she is
fourth all time in scoring with
two full seasons left.
With the defense as young as
it is, scoring goals will be at a pre-
mium to counter any defensive
mistakes, which makes McCal-
lion all the more valuable.
Coach Donnenwirth will
have strong midfielders this
season as well. Senior Sarah Stoltz
is one of the best two-way play-
ers on the team. Another senior,
Rachelle Cabeceiras, ranks In the
top five in five career categories
including shot percentage and
goals scored. The play of these
two and their ability to control
the tempo of games will be a cru-
cial part ECU'S scheme this year.
All in all, it looks to be a good
season for the Pirates. Expect
great goaltending and loads
of scoring. McCallion should
move up the list on the all-time
scoring list before finishing her
career next season as the great-
est goal scorer in ECU history.
If the young defense can hold
up, expect a birth in the C-USA

Pirate swimmers ready to take to pools
Parker, Cronin eager to
fulfill leadership roles
It's a sport of millimeters
and thousandths of seconds. It's
a sport where to be a fan you
can't help but scream If you are
In attendance. It's a sport that
ECU has dominated and placed
its stamp on as one of the most
winning traditions in Pirate ath-
letic history.
Is it football? No. How about
basketball? Not that either. Try
the sport that millions of people
around the world were captivated
by during this summer's Olympic
Games: swimming.
The Pirate swim teams, under
Head Coach Rick Kobe, have
been one of the most dominating
forces in Pirate athletics during
Kobe's tenure, and this year looks
to be no different.
Though ECU lost a few key
swimmers from last year's team,
the Pirates have reloaded with
the new incoming recruiting
class and are ready to fire away
at this year's competition.
"We brought in our largest
and most talented recruiting class
ever said Kobe.
"These freshman will step
right in and truly be a big part
of this program and hopefully
enable us to win both champion-
ships this year
The Pirate freshmen will
have a solid core of current Pirate
swimmers to look to for experi-
ence and motivation throughout
the season.
Both the men and women's swim teams finished second in
Conference USA at the end of 2003-2004 season.
On the women's side, return-
ing senior Diane Parker and
junior Holly Williams both look
to have yet another success-
ful season. Parker, despite any
achievements she may earn this
season, will go down as one of
the most prolific swimmers in
ECU history.
"She (Parker) is very versatile
which makes her very valuable
Kobe said.
Senior Casey Cronin will
lead the men's charge to the
conference title this year. Cronin
is coming off three solid years
as a Pirate where he has been
conference champion in several
"Casey swims everything and
swims it well Kobe said.
"We have Kelly Hendrick
and Gavin Stark backing him
up which are good kids in their
specialty events
The key to the Pirates' year in
and year out success is credited
to Kobe's ability to make sure
that his swimmers maintain
a steady balance between the
different strokes of the
"We really have always tried
to balance out all the events.
And when you balance out your
events, that's how you win dual
meets and that's how you win
championship meets Kobe
A picture perfect example of
individual balance is this year's
eight-medal performer, Olympic
champion Michael Phelps.
"What he did these past
couple of weeks was truly incred-
ible Kobe said.
Truly incredible could be
used to describe the tradition of
Pirate swimming and what they
have been able to accomplish
over the years. Truly incredible
will hopefully be the words used
to describe this season after it is
all said and done.
The Pirates open with the
PurpleGold meet on Thursday,

While mostly dealing with
football during the fall season,
McClellan is in charge of all of
the intercollegiate sports offered
at ECU. He has four people
reporting to him including a
secretary so McClellan will have
to balance management duties
as well.
"I knew that I needed to
become a head SID to learn how
to manage a budget and staff
McClellan said.
"It's a never ending process in
football. Its stuff that people sit-
ting on the couch watching have
no idea what is going on
Not being from the area,
McClellan will have to orient
himself with a whole new media
core. What he doesn't know now,
McClellan will surely make up

tion would be whether he has

' denotes Conference USA game
Lady Pirates kick off
against UNC-W
As the new school year is
underway at ECU, team athlet-
ics gear up and prepare for their
upcoming seasons. ECU's vol-
leyball team is no exception as
they get ready to kick off their
season Wednesday against UNC
Wilmington. The Lady Pirates
will be looking to improve from
last year's 10-21 record. Despite
being a young team with no
seniors, the Lady Pirates will not
be discouraged as they compete
in their fourth year in Confer-
ence USA.
With the lack of seniors on
the team, the Lady Pirates will
look to their five juniors to step
up into leadership positions.
Erica Wilson will be trying to lead
her team in kills again this year,
after last year's team-leading 287
kills. Fellow juniors Pam Ferris
and Katie Jannusch will also step
into leadership roles for ECU.
Ferris and Jannusch combined
for more than 400 kills and 387
digs last year.
The strategy of Head Coach
Colleen Munson this year will
focus on the team's speed, tempo
and defense. Johanna Bertini,
Caitlin Daly and Trish Monroe
will provide the team with
a strong defense, something
Munson has based this year's
team around.
"It gives us confidence that
if we don't block a ball, we're
going to dig it said Munson,
in an interview with ECU Sports
"Our practices are going to be
more competitive because we'll
have three excellent defensive
players which will make every-
one's game better
The first test for the team
comes this Wednesday as the
Lady Pirates host UNC Wilm-
ington. UNC-W is coming off a
6-20 season, but with a new head
coach the Lady Seahawks cannot
be taken lightly.
The Lady Pirates will then
continue with their home sched-
ule this weekend as they host
the City Hotel & Bistro Invi-
tational. The tournament will
feature teams such as High Point,
Furman, Mercer and Lamar.
Munson seems confident
that this year's team will be suc-

in September to try and avenge
a 5-2 loss to the Blue Devils from
a year ago.
This year's squad returns
a number of key players on
offense, including team captain
Reed Avren, who Benn expects
to put scorers Michael Logan,
Chris Mobley, Terron Amos and
a number of others in prime posi-
tion to score goals.
On the defensive side of the
ball, the Pirates have improved
tremendously with the return of
starters David Rowe, Pat Cutler
and Rob Cann from last year's
team. The anchor of that defense
will be sophomore goalkeeper
Brian Pope, who started in goal his
freshman season and according
to coach Benn had "a very good
freshman year and has come
back ready to go at it this year.
Although the Pirates return
many of their starters from a year
ago, Benn feels that freshman
Alex Diedrichs will play a crucial
part in the team's success.
"Alex has come in and It looks
like he's going to be starting at
center mid-field for us. He's a
very sound, technical player and
I think he'll compliment Reed
(Avren) very well.
"This will be the most tal-
ented team that we've have had
here in my six years Benn said.
The veterans have done a
good job of what Benn calls
"welcoming" the freshmen to the
team, which has led to the devel-
opment of good team chemistry
up to this point in the season.
"We stress getting together off
the field and doing some things
like going out to dinner, and
just last week, we got together
and watched the U.S. national
team in a World Cup qualifier
Benn said.
With the team clicking off
the field, Benn believes his squad
will carry that chemistry over
onto the field.
"We're a family. Our players
pull very well for each other,
and that's something that we
stress everyday, to be there for
each other, both on and off the
field, and know that you're not
just working for yourself, but
you're working for your family
Benn said.
The Pirates will begin their
march towards a great season on
Wednesday with Wilmington.
First ball is scheduled for 3:30 pm
at Bunting Field.

ECU golf team set to "tee off' 2004-
2005 season in mid-September
Pirates looking to improve
on 2003-2004 year
On September 13, the ECU
men's and women's golf teams
will be teeing off their 55th
annual campaign. The men will
be starting their season on the
road at the Mid Pines Intercol-
legiate Tournament in Southern
Pines, NC while the women start
on the road at the Cougar Fall
Invitational in Charleston, SC.
The men and women both
look to improve on disappoint-
ing season's in 2003-2004 in
which neither team lived up to
expectations. Head Coach Kevin
Williams expects better results
from his teams this season.
"I think we have a good
chance to be very competitive
this year said Williams, now
in his tenth year as ECU's head
golf coach.
"We have a lot of new faces,
and with the new enthusiasm gen-
erated by these newcomers, I feel
we can be very good this year
Williams expects freshmen
Ryan Solan of Charlotte, Martin
Nicholls of Cali, Colombia and
Chris Ault of Levittown, Pa. to
help form a solid nucleus for
the men's team, lead by return-
ing starter, junior Adam Howell
of Rocky Mount and transfer,
sophomore Ryan Neal of Arling-
ton, Texas. The men's first home
outing will be Oct. 18-19 at the
Pirate Fall Intercollegiate from
Bradford Creek Golf Club.
For the women's team, Wil-
liams expects top recruit, fresh-
man Emelie Lind of Balsta,
Sweden to make a big impact
along side senior Adrienne Mil-
lican. Millican of Fuquay-Varlna
continued to show why she is
ranked in the top 100 collegiate
players in the country by finish-
ing 33rd out of 125 at the NCAA
Championship in May. Other
notables to watch on this year's
women's team include sopho-
mores Jessica Hauser of German-
ton, NC and Michelle Williams of
Wolfville, Nova Scotia along with
juniors Heidi Helliesen of Droe-
bak, Norway and Jamie Quinn
of Sanford, NC. The women
will be making their first home
appearance Oct. 11-12 at the Lady
Pirate Fall Intercollegiate, also at
Bradford Creek Golf Club.

A look at the 2004-2005 NFC East
(AP) �Joe Gibbs and Bill Par-
cells have five Super Bowl wins
between them. Tom Coughlin
took an expansion franchise in
Jacksonville and had it in the
AFC championship game in its
second year.
The NFC East, however,
belongs to Andy Reid.
Reid took over the Eagles in
1999, went 5-11 with Donovan
McNabb as a rookie and is 46-18
since, not counting the playoffs.
The only stain on his record is
three straight losses in NFC title
games and even that is a dubious
blemish - give him credit for get-
ting back there every year.
With the addition of Terrell
Owens and Jevon Kearse, the
Eagles have more than a decent
shot at doing it again, although
It would be considered another
disaster in Philly if they stop
there. Never mind winning the
NFC East - that seems easy. Reid,
his players and the city will be
satisfied with nothing less than
its first NFL title in 44 years.
First things first.
The Eagles are clearly the
class of the NFC East, winners
of the last three division titles
and probably up against weaker
opposition than last season.
Dallas, which finished 10-6 and
made the playoffs in Parcells' first
season, could take a step back;
Washington, 5-11, has a long
way to go, even under Gibbs; and
the Giants are rebuilding under
So Philadelphia it is, with
Owens giving McNabb the first
premier receiver he's had.
"I feel very comfortable back
there with T.O McNabb said
of his new receiver whose tem-
pestuous behavior got him run
out of San Francisco. "We are
doing some different things now.
I think that we've been able to
understand exactly what we are
doing and know what we are
seeing out there
There are two negatives in
One is the loss of cornerbacks
Troy Vincent and Bobby Taylor to
free agency, especially Vincent, a
leader in the locker room whose
influence was the exact opposite
of Owens' in San Francisco. The
second is injuries: Defensive end
N.D. Kalu and running back Cor-
rell Buckhalter already are lost for
the season and a dozen others are
banged up.
But Kearse can be a devastat-
ing pass rusher when healthy
(and he has been this summer)
and Owens is the one thing
the Eagles have lacked - a No. 1
Head Coach Andy Reid looks to prove that his Philadelphia
Eagles can get past the NFC Championship this season and
put their names on a ticket to Super Bowl XXXIX.
receiver for McNabb. The load at
running back now falls on Brian
Westbrook, who is more suited
for spot duty.
The main defensive problem
will be at cornerback, where
youngsters Lito Sheppard and
Sheldon Brown step in for Taylor
and Vincent. It doesn't help that
Brian Dawkins, one of the game's
best safeties and the leader of the
secondary, has been a training
camp casualty.
The rest of the division can
bask in the glory of its coaches.
Among them, Reid, Gibbs,
Parcells and Coughlin are 427-
274-1, with those five Super Bowl
wins, seven Super Bowl appear-
ances and 13 championship
game appearances. And their
record would be even better If
they hadn't struggled In their
first seasons, Parcells with the
Giants and Patriots, Reid in 1999,
and Coughlin with a first-year
expansion team.
Gibbs also started poorly, 0-5
in 1981 before finishing 8-8 that
year and winning the Super Bowl
the next.
So Washington fan, have
made a savior out of Gibbs, who
won three Super Bowls in his
first tenure with the Redskins
(1981-92). This year, his presence
alone should improve the team,
although past spending sprees by
owner Daniel Snyder have come
to nothing under Norv Turner,
Marty Schottenheimer and Steve
Gibbs has some weapons,
with the biggest upgrade at run-
ning back with Clinton Portis,
who in two years in Denver
rushed for 3,099 yards. But Portis
came at a steep price when the
Redskins surrendered Champ
Bailey, one of the league's best
Bailey will be replaced by
another free agent, Shawn
Springs. But the key to the
defense will be linebacker LaVar
Arrington, whom Gibbs and his
newold assistants plan to turn
loose to rush the passer.

tion, Mark Brunell, won the

brought in two-time MVP Kurt

experience and Manning's inex-
perience were painfully evident
in an exhibition against the blitz-
ing Jets, and Warner was chosen
to start the season.
The best news of the pre-

Fassel all of last season. So far,

match of
U.S. Open
(AP) � Australian Open and
Wimbledon champion Roger
Federer began his quest for a
third Grand Slam title this season
Monday, defeating former French
Open champion Albert Costa,
7-5,6-2, 6-4 In the first round of
the U.S. Open.
Playing on an oppressively
humid afternoon at the National
Tennis Center, Federer came
into the Open on a mission. He
has never progressed beyond
the round of 16 in four previous
appearances at the season's final
Grand Slam.
But now he is seeded No. 1,
the pre-tournament favorite, and
he played an efficient first-round
match against Costa, who is more
at home on clay than the hard
courts of the Open.
Federer took 2 hours, 4 min-
utes to beat Costa, who had split
four previous matches with the
top seed.
"I lost the last two times I
played him, once on clay, once on
hard Federer said. "He knows
how to beat me. I started to figure
out how to play him today, so I'm
happy about that
Not on Monday. Blasting
serves as high as 129 mph, Federer
delivered 11 aces to one for Costa
and won easily.
Next for Federer is qualifier
Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus, the
2003 world junior champion,
who defeated France's Gregory
Carraz, ranked 156 places above
him, and took a set against
14th-seeded Nicolas Kiefer in the
Athens Olympics.
Longtime Open favorite Jen-
nifer Capriati, seeded No. 8,
dropped her first set to Denisa
Chladkova but then recovered
for a 2-6, 6-1, 6-2 victory. Play-
ing tentatively at first, Capriati
struggled early before taking
"She came out firing. I didn't
expect her to come out and play
so well Capriati said. "I wasn't
comfortable in the first set. She's
got to start making errors. She's
got to come down. I'm very
relieved. The conditions were
tough. I dug deep and pulled out
some shots when I had to
Mardy Fish, the silver medal-
ist at Athens and seeded No. 26 at
the Open, defeated David Ferrer
7-5, 6-3, 6-2 and Olivier Rochus
ousted Wimbledon semifinalist
Mario Ancic, seeded No. 27, 7-5,
6-2, 7-6 (6).
Earlier, third-seeded Carlos
Moya got an early scare from
wild-card entry Brian Baker,
dropping the first set before
recovering to defeat the 19-year-
old 6-7 (6), 6-4, 6-4, 6-2.
Equipped with the highest
Grand Slam ranking of his career,
Moya came into the Open off a
strong season. He reached the
quarterfinals at Cincinnati and
at the Olympics, losing to the
eventual champion both times.
So Baker, making just his second
appearance in this event, seemed
to be an easy first-round draw.
But the teenager got an early
lead in the opening set and then
won the tiebreak, even after
losing a lead.
After that, however, Moya
established control. He ripped
24 aces and 66 winners in the
match that stretched 3 hours, 7

Mauresmo, the silver
medalist at the Athens Olympics,
waited out a 20-minute rain delay
at the start and then wore down
Irvin methodically. She hit 18
winners and had seven aces, six
in the second set.
A semifinalist or better in
eight of 12 tour events this
year, including Wimbledon,
Mauresmo overcame four double
faults and won 77 percent
of her first-serve points. She
converted all four of her
break-point opportunities and
finished the match in 1 hour, 13
The high seed does not
disturb Mauresmo, who has
never won a Grand Slam.
"I don't feel the pressure
of being No. 2 or No. 3 seed or
whatever she said. "My goal is
still the same coming here as it
was going to Wimbledon or the
other Grand Slams. I want to go
to the end and try to get that
"You know, It's the first
rounds, never easy. I guess I
have a few things to adjust in my
game. But overall, you know, a
good start of the tournament"
