of Virginia and a nationally
respected leader in intercollegiate
sports, has been selected as the
new athletics director at ECU.

Virginia, will be introduced at
a news conference on Wednes-
day in Greenville, ECU officials
ECU Chancellor Steve Ballard
said, "Terry Holland is a proven
program builder who has been
successful throughout his career
as coach and athletics director.
He has great integrity and the
ability to inspire others. His
credentials are impeccable, and I
have no doubt that he will make
a difference at ECU
Holland has agreed to a five-
year contract with ECU, and will
begin his duties on Oct. 1, Ballard
said. Ballard also said that Nick
Floyd, the senior associate ath-
letics director who has served as
interim AD since Mike Hamrick
resigned last August, has agreed
to a new five-year contract to
remain at ECU.
"Nick has done a superb job,
and his continued leadership
will help assure the strength
and vigor of our program Bal-
Holland served as the athletic
director at the University of Vir-
ginia from 1995 to 2001, before
becoming the special assistant
to the president. In that post,
he secured the creation of a new
basketball arena for the univer-
sity. His career at Virginia began
in 1974 as head men's basketball
coach, where he was touted as
the most successful coach in
the university's history with a
326-173 record. In 1990 he was
appointed athletics director at his
alma mater, Davidson College,
before returning to Charlottes-
ville as AD.
"The main attraction of East
Carolina University is the spirit,
pride and determination of its
students, faculty, alumni and
fans said Holland, who will
move-to Greenville with his
"Our immediate goal will
be to join with the university
to provide a first-class academic
and athletic environment so that
every student and every athlete
from eastern North Carolina will
find that they do not have to
leave the area in order to succeed
at the highest levels academically
Holland was chosen with the
assistance of a search committee
task force. A native of Clinton,
NC, Holland is a member of
the North Carolina Sports Hall
of Fame. While AD of Virginia,
Holland oversaw the $86 million
expansion of the university's
football stadium and planned

As part of new security measures, residence hall entry ways are under 24 hour surveillance of the ECU Police.
New features set to
improve dorm safety
In an effort to increase resi-
dence hall safety, the ECU police
and campus living officials have
added several new security mea-
sures this year which they hope
will prevent security incidents
"We have had a long-stand-
ing security concern and com-
mitment in the residence halls
said Aaron Lucier, associate
director of campus living.
More than 80 color and
digital surveillance cameras
were Installed in residence hall
entrances over the summer.
This new addition will give the
ECU police a view of each resi-
dence hall doorway at all times.
"They the cameras are
working and people are moni-
toring the cameras 24 hours a
day said Amy Davis, crime
prevention sergeant of the ECU
Lucier said the plan to add
cameras to residence halls was
considered before several inci-
dences took place last spring in
ECU residence halls.
Davis said the ECU Police
Department has recommended
a OneCard system to Campus
Living. The system would
require campus residents to
swipe their One Card in order
to enter their dorm.
"More of the incidents
we've had in recent years, in my
knowledge, have been due Jo,
the failure of the lock systeiiC
"Any lock system is only
as good as the security of the
people using the system
Lucier said that while they
are still looking at the pos-
sibility of having a OneCard
system, many students allow
non-residents to follow behind
them upon entering the dorms
and changing from keys to
cards is not going to make a big
"If students aren't taking
safety seriously, we're going to
have challenges Lucier said.
Lucier said students could
work to improve the current
lock system by treating the
residence hall like you would
treat your house.
This includes leaving your
room locked and keeping
strangers from walking in
Davis said new blue light
emergency phones are being
� added to the west end of
campus as part of the addition
to the new dining hall. These
phones are going to be placed
in accessible areas for students
to use in case of emergencies.
Lucier said random ID
checks are being performed
at College Hill residence halls
during the first two weeks of the
semester to raise awareness and
make residence halls safer.
Other services provided by
the ECU police to help ensure
student safety are various pro-
grams and demonstrations in
the residence halls educating
students on safety issues.
"The first program we are
putting on in the residence
halls is the safety and security
program led by officers Davis
Programs are another way
to ensure resident safety. Lucier
said he encourages students to
take an active role in making
the campus a safer place to

halls have specific concerns,
they should bring it to the
attention of the staff Lucier

orally, and students living in
dorms are at a higher risk of
getting the disease because of the
close living quarters they share
with other residents. Coughing
can spread meningitis, as can
sharing a glass or a cigarette or
kissing, Warren said.
Students are encouraged go to
the Student Health Center today
and receive the vaccination.
The cost of the vaccination is $90
and can be paid with cash, check,
credit or added to tuition.
"This vaccine is very effective
in protecting against bacterial

While forms of meningitis
do exist in viruses, bacterial

Center for Off-Campus Living to help students
The Center for Off-Campus
Living, a new addition to ECU
this year, looks to improve the
living conditions for students by
educating them on their rights
and serving as a place where
students can get their living
"The office's main purpose
is to educate students about
their rights as renters. Also, we
help with mediation between
residents if the need arises said
Mary Lou Antieau, director of the
center for off-campus living.
Antieau said the center is
made up of a cluster of offices
that provide services to students
living off campus. The center
works to stabilize the area of hous-
ing adjacent to campus by taking
several different approaches.
The first method is through
educating students about their
rights. If students have problems
with their landlord, the center
serves as a neutral third party
to educate students about their
legal rights as renters. Examples
of issues that may be occur
include the landlord not making
necessary repairs or the landlord
making the student renters pay
for the repairs.
The second method is through
mediation. If a complaint is filed,
workers of the center may go
speak with the necessary people
in an attempt to find a peaceful
"There is nothing more
successful than explaining a situ-
ation in a neutral environment

Unlike her classmates who are
beginning careers, Sutherland cant
even apply for the job she wants.
Her dream of working in forensics for
a law enforcement agency has been
put off indefinitely because she can't
get a security clearance. She's caught
in a bureaucratic quagmire that
leaves her citizenship in doubt, and
she has no birth certificate to prove
who she is or where she belongs.
She has a Social Security number,
obtained for her when she was a
child by the man she thought was her
father - long before her citizenship
was in question.
But for a job in her chosen field,
she needs more. She needs a birth
certificate with her parents' names on
it. And she's been searching for that
piece of paper for years.
All she knows is what she's been told:
that she was bom on a US. Naval base
in Spain and brought to this country

to be her father. He left her sister
and brother with family members.

In Alaska, safety officials
target culture of bush pilots
to reduce air crashes
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Joe
Darminio loves nothing better than
landing his plane on a 200-foot
sandbar deep in Alaska's wilderness,
where the twisted hemlocks and the
occasional brown bear are the only
company to be found.
Darminio, like the image of Alaska's
bush pilots, is part Grizzly Adams,
part Charles Lindbergh. Keeping
up with that image has led to a few
pilots taking unnecessary risks.
There's even a name for it: bush pilot
"There is a mystique about Alaska,
and some people feel they have to
live up to certain legends said Jerry
Dennis, executive director of the
Medallion Foundation, which runs
aviation safety programs.
Such programs aim to reduce the
number of air accidents by changing
the culture of the bush pilots. It's part
of the goal of the Federal Aviation
Administration to reduce the number
of air accidents in Alaska 20 percent

troop calls United States weak
KUFA, Iraq (AP) - Ever defiant, a

followers with a sermon that ridiculed
the United States and dispelled
any notion he would seek a more
Rebel Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr's
sermon, read out to 2,000 followers,
came on the first Friday prayers
since the end of a brutal three-week
standoff with American troops in
Najaf after a peace deal that allowed
al-Sadr and his militants to walk away
free - and keep their guns.
The cleric's public statements and
subsequent actions have often
been at odds and nothing in Fnday's
sermon suggested he was planning
to immediately resume hostilities. But
its inflammatory tone did nothing to
calm the tension between his fighters
and the U.S. and Iraqi militaries.
"Many, but not all, think that the
American army is invincible. But now
it's appeared only truth is invincible
Sheik Jaber al-Khafaji, said in a
statement read on al-Sadr's behalf.
"America claims to control the world
through globalization, but it couldn't
do the same with the Mahdi Army
Al-Sadr aides said the cleric initially
planned to deliver the sermon himself
from a makeshift pulpit on the street
outside the Kufa mosque, which was
closed last week after militants pulled
out under the peace accord. But he
abandoned the idea amid fears it
could raise tensions.
Iraqi security forces sealed off roads
and fired warning shots near the city
in an effort to keep the jostling crowds
Last week's accord that ended three
weeks of fighting between U.S. forces

to survey damage in Florida on

AMANDA Q. UNGERFELT Editor in Chief WEDNESDAY September 8, 2004
This season in baseball is, as they say, "A year
for the record books
People don't quite realize how historic this
season is shaping up to be - not to mention
that a piece of it will foreshadow another his-
toric breakthrough next year.
It all starts with Barry Bonds, who is now at
home run number 697. Take a step back and
gather in what that number signifies. It means
Barry is three away from 700, which means
he's 18 away from 715, which then means he's
only 58 from 755. With around a month left in
the season, Bonds is 18 away from putting
his name ahead of George Herman Ruth for
second on the home run list.
After the Babe, it's chasing Hank Aaron, and
mark our words, he will catch him - perhaps
Then there is Albert Pujols, who just last week
did something no major leaguer has done in
the history of the game. Pujols became the first
player to ever hit at least 30 home runs and
100 RBI's in his first four seasons.
In the last four years, or three and counting,
Pujols has amassed 157 home runs, 487 RBI's
and a batting average of .333. And he hasn't
even won an MVP yet. Woe is the young man
who plays in the same league as Bonds.
Over in the AL, we have Ichiro Suzuki, a man
who is on pace to eclipse George Sisler's 84-
year old record of 257 hits in a single season.
Ichiro has three five-hit games in this season,
one short of Ted William's record. Ichiro is also
batting .377 (1st in the AL) and has an on-base
percentage of .416 (2nd in AL).
Will Pujols and Ichiro win MVP in their respec-
tive leagues? Ichiro is a definite possibility
while Bonds will most likely overshadow Pujols
again even though the St. Louis outfielder is up
in the home run race by four long balls.
Though we believe Pujols and Ichiro should
be the hands-down MVP's of the AL and NL,
one thing is for sure: This season has been
history in the making.

Last week I challenged everyone to
give their opinion on where all the lib-
erals had gone. The response was some-
what disappointing. 1 don't know if
very few people read the paper last Tues-
day or if the question was just too hard.
I do know the lack of response
couldn't possibly have been due to lack
of concern and apathy on the part of
the readership - not at ECU.
Whatever the reason for the lack of
response, 1 will once again ask for your
input. Not just to offer a second chance
but because 1 decided not to submit my
I had a great column, if I do say so
myself, all ready to go. It was going to
be about John Kerry again but I didn't
have the heart to submit it.
From all the lies he has been caught
in (and the resulting twists of logic and
reality to Justify them), to performing a
personnel "shake-up" (translation: a lot
of people lose their jobs) and bringing
in a bunch of Clinton people into his
campaign with two months to the elec-
tion, to his pathetic and petulant spur
of the moment midnight news confer-
ence immediately after the Republican
National Convention saying that the
public should decide if five deferments
or two tours in Vietnam makes a person
more qualified, it is obvious John Kerry
is falling apart. It really is a sad thing
I feel sorry for the man. That's why
a different column this week. So, let's
1 would like to hear your pet peeves,
especially ones you have about things
at ECU. But before we get into that, I
promised my wife that hers would be
first. Here you go hun.
Through our attempts to help find a
home for our neighbor's adorable mutt,
she has developed a peeve. Untold
numbers of ladies have said, "I'll have
to ask my husband" when asked if they
would like the dog. My wife thinks that
men shouldn't have the final say when
it comes to dog ownership (since the
women usually end up taking care of
them anyhow). Me, I think these ladies
just use their husbands as an excuse
for not wanting to say "no Men do
the same thing of course, so this is a
OK, promise fulfilled. Let's have
I ride the commuter shuttle every-
day and may still have some bruises to
show for it. The bruises didn't come
from bad bus drivers. They came from
the drivers having to hit the brakes to
avoid all the suicidal numbskulls here
� I don't know how many times I
have seen people walk, run or ride their
bikes or skateboards in front of moving
buses. Case in point - some genius on
his bike deliberately sped up to beat a
bus turning into the library entrance
last Thursday. The driver had to hit the
brakes hard to avoid him. Everyone on
the bus got tossed around as a result.
To save himself the inconvenience
of slowing down or stopping, he was
willing to put himself, everyone on the
bus and the people in the cars behind
the bus in danger. Not to mention that
if the bus had hit him, we all would
have been delayed while they scraped
him off the pavement and the cops took
Next - I am constantly amazed at
what comes out of some of the mouths
around here. I served in the Marines
and never heard the type, or amount, of
filth that some people here use except
from drill instructors when someone
royally messed up.
What possible purpose does it serve
to use a curse word or five every sen-
tence? It doesn't improve the quality
of the conversation, make them look
(or act) any smarter or make them
appear more mature. If anything, it
proves how immature and insecure
they really are.
And when they spew forth their
garbage in restaurants and other public
places, totally ignoring the sensitivi-
ties of others, they just prove my last
Next, and last (for me) - How many
times have you been trying to listen to
a lecture and suddenly think you are
on a Tarm instead of in a classroom?
Yet when you look around you realize
that the sound you are hearing is not a
cow chewing cud but a fellow student
with a wad of gum in their mouth,
smacking away. Kind of makes you
want to reach out and wire their jaws
shut doesn't it?
My momma taught me at an early
age that it was not polite to chew with
your mouth open, and I'm pretty sure
most of yours did also. So what hap-
pened between then and now? How
can anyone think other people would
want to hear you chomping your Juicy
Fruit and smacking your lips? If that is
how they chew gum, I'm glad I'm not
around them at mealtimes.
Your turn ladies and gentlemen. It's
time to air out your pet peeves. Even if
your biggest peeve is seeing my column
in the paper every week, send it in.
You can do so by responding
to this article online at www.thee-
astcarolinlan.com or sending it to
Well, that's it for me, until next

But please, don't tell them I said
that. After all, I don't want them to
get the wrong idea and think that
maybe their daughter doesn't know
everything. So, for now, this will just
be between you and me.
However, let me explain my situa-
tion a little further and not just leave
it at that - my parents were right, and I
was wrong. You see, some of my closest
friends and I decided that this year was
time for a change. Our lives had moved
past the dorm, and it was time that we
too moved out.
My parents warned me that college
life would never be the same after I took
that next step. By leaving the dorms,
they said, I would be leaving something
I have to admit I was a little uncer-
tain when I signed the lease for our
apartment. But any hesitation 1 might
have felt was overshadowed by the
excitement of something new and
the promise of a tub where I could go
Lest you get the wrong idea now,
I should point out that I haven't been
disappointed by the additional space
and freedom. I love cooking meals in
my spatially challenged kitchen, and
1 don't miss carrying a shower bucket
with me down the hall. And with my
door closed, I can sleep as late as 1 want
when my roommates get up for their 8
a.m. classes. And, we haven't had any
of those middle-of-the-night fire alarms
yet -1 don't miss those at all.
Still, at times over these past few
weeks, I have thought of things I miss.
1 didn't swap the bad for good by
moving out of the dorm and into an
apartment. I just traded one kind of
good for another.
Having my own place, of softs,
shared with three of the best girls
anyone could choose, I am having a
great time and thoroughly enjoying the
new experience. But some afternoons,
when they are all in class and I am
eating my lunch with the cast of some
early 1990s syndicate, I get caught up
in a little bit of nostalgia.
1 remember those long lunches at
the dining hall where I would gather
with a large group of friends. I think
back to those late nights in the hall
where anyone who walked past might
stop and chat for a few minutes or a few
hours. I realize how the dorm served
as a meeting place and impetus of
friendship for a group of teenagers
who might never have met otherwise.
I miss it.
On those mornings when I crowd
onto a bus with other off-campus stu-
dents, 1 remember how nice it was to
sleep another half hour and walk to
class with friends from my building.
And I think about how convenient it
was to go anywhere on campus with just
my own two feet, rather than having to
worry with parking and passes, traffic
and tickets. I miss that too.
But most of all, I just miss the con-
nection that I felt to the ECU campus
when I was eating, sleeping, learning,
studying and socializing there. I lived
and breathed ECU. Now, I just drop in
for a few hours a day before heading
back to my apartment, my symbol of
adulthood. Yes, I miss ECU.
So, my parents were right. College
life is not the same for me anymore. I'm
not regretful about my decision, just
thoughtful. But remember, my parents
really don't have to know.

I'm glad they USA men's
basketball didn't win the gold.
They didn't work hard enough
for it; they didn't earn it. We're
not invincible. Basketball is an
overrated sport anyway.

I'm smart enough to stay out of
the water. So tell me, why do I
have to take a stupid swim test
to graduate from ECU?
Do we really care that much
about the health problems of our
current and former politicians
(i.e. Clinton's triple bypass sur-
gery)? I don't know about you,
but I am just dying to find out
when Kerry has a cold or when
Bush has diarrhea. I can't possibly
live without that kind of news.

floor no less, and I am sick and
tired of hair in the shower and

The key to being wise is

Michael Moore is currently
trying to get Fahrenheit 911
nominated for the "Best Picture"
Oscar. Sorry, Michael, but I don't
think a movie promoting lies,
exaggerations and propaganda
constitutes the quality deserving
a "Best Picture" nod.
I picked up Friday's edition of
TEC hoping to read something
about Bush's speech at the Repub-
lican National Convention from
the night before. I looked through
the paper once, twice, three times
to make sure I hadn't simply
overlooked it. But, oddly enough,
the day following Bush's speech
at the RNC, the only real cover-
age in our university's newspaper
was devoted to Kerry's response
to Bush's comments. There was
also space in the news section
for a small article on Edwards
speaking to some laid off workers,
but not even a mention that Bush
had spoken at the convention.
I guess I was supposed to read
the article focused on Kerry to
ascertain that Bush had spoken
at the RNC.
I'm not sure as to how else
I can view this, but as a rather
blatant choice to not cover some
very important news. As some-
thing that thousands of students
read, I think it's more important
to cover the fact that Bush made
one of his more notable speech-
es during his presidency than
to cover the opening of a new
Starbucks in Greenville that I saw
In the features section.
Given the number of protes-
tors and the current state of the
war in Iraq, this is easily the most
controversial and closely watched
election in recent memory. I find
it disheartening that something
I read everyday and look to for
information made such an egre-
gious error or worse yet, chose to
not cover it at all. All those
who are interested and staying
informed of politics in this very
important election year should
be disturbed by this oversight or
choice by TEC staff.
Editor's note: TEC publishes
every Tuesday, Wednesday and
Thursday during the school semes-
ter. Bush's speech took place on
Thursday night, so we were unable
to cover it within our paper.

Bill Clinton undergoes Bush fires back at Kerry's criticism of Iraq
heart bypass surgery
NEW YORK (AP) � Former
President Bill Clinton was
described as doing well Tuesday,
breathing on his own as he recov-
ers from an operation to relieve
arteries so severely clogged that
they had posed imminent danger
of a major heart attack.
He was taken off his respira-
tor Monday night - a crucial
step in his recovery, Bob Kelly,
a member of Clinton's surgery
team, said Tuesday.
"Everything is going very
well Kelly said on NBC's "Today
Clinton underwent the four-
hour quadruple bypass operation
Monday at New York Presby-
terian HospitalColumbia. His
heart disease was extensive, with
blockages in some arteries well
over 90 percent, doctors said.
"There was a substantial
likelihood that he would have
had a substantial heart attack
said Dr. Allan Schwartz, chief
of cardiology. Doctors called
Clinton's operation successful
and said his return to full health
will take weeks.
The former president also
had high blood pressure and
may not have been adequately
treated for high cholesterol. His
doctors said he was put on a
cholesterol-lowering drug a few
days ago. Clinton was prescribed
cholesterol medicine In 2001 as
he was leaving office.
"These past few days have
been quite an emotional roller-
coaster for us Clinton's wife,
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton,
said in a statement. "The presi-
dent's optimism and faith will
carry him through the difficult
weeks and months ahead - of

The 58-year-old former presi-
dent went to the hospital late last
week after complaining of chest
pain and shortness of breath,
but doctors revealed Monday
that he'd had these symptoms
for several months. They said
he had blamed them on lapses
in his exercise routine and acid
It was finally discovered that
the problem was his heart after
one episode occurred while he
was resting and lasted longer

blood around blockages.

During the operation, Clin-

That process, used for more

patients, carries a small risk of

The Constitution Party and

On the advice of the state
attorney general's office,
Jensen initially declined to
accept Nader's petitions, which
weren't grouped according to
congressional districts as board
guidelines dictate. Three days
later, Attorney General Jerry
Kilgore ordered Jensen to
accept the petitions because the
requirement had never been
adopted by the elections board.
With Democrats nationally
concerned that Nader will dilute
the vote for Kerry, and Republi-

"The idea occurred to me
because I thought it was an
overall description of Kelly and
my work, since the pieces we
both create are different in both
materials and subject matter
Kye's focus for the show is
textiles. In the realm of people,
places and things, Kye will be
focusing on nature and the ele-
ments found in nature. Her work
involves more organic shapes
with color overlay and patterns.
Kye will also be displaying her
work with embroidery, screen
printing and fusible webbing.

showing my work at one of the

Wang's focus for the show
is painting. The themes she will

"Though I'm still trying to
pinpoint the exact reasons and
methods to my madness, I've
been working with this theme for

I see buildings, windows and

in me that's hard to explain in
words, so I won't try Wang

People's Choice Award at the
Toronto International Film Festi-

Audience Award at Sundance.
Hailed as a great movie that
will touch your heart and mind
by film critic Roger Ebert. The
story Whale Rider is set in a
small town in modern day New
Zealand. The film opens to show
Pai (played by Keisha Castle-
Hughes, who was nominated
for Best Actress in a Leading
Role at the 76th Academy
Awards) making her entrance
into the world. Her twin
brother, who is supposed to be
the leader of the Maori-
ans, dies at birth, along with
Pai's mother. Pai's father,
Porourangi (Cliff Curtis) leaves
to work abroad as an artist.
Pai's caring grandparents, Koro
(Rawiri Paratene) and Nanny
Flowers (Vicky Haughton) raise
her. Twelve-year-old Pai has
developed into a strong-willed girl
that seems to be possessed with
an inner strength. Pai grew up
hearing the story of how
her ancestors came to
the island led by a boy
leader named Palkea that rode on
the back of a whale. Pai dreams
of becoming a Maorian leader.
What makes this film worthwhile
is the loving relationship between
Pai and Koro. Although Koro
strongly loves Pai, he fiercely and
strictly rejects Pai's desire to
learn the old chants, fighting
of the Maorians
she's a girl. Pai
comes her odds
into the realistic
everyday life of
each of these
people may find
this film to be slow
paced. This movie
like a cliche feminist film,
but that's avoided by keep-
ing the story fresh and
emotionally moving. A
few tears may be shed during a
very touching scene in which Pai
dedicates a speech to Koro. A very
inspirational movie. A good
-feeling film for anyone who
needs a little inspiration.

The Five People you

Book review by
The Five People you Meet in
Heaven, written by Mitch Albom,
printed by Hyperion. 196 Pages.
Number 1 New York Times
Bestseller and author of acclaimed
novel Tuesdays with
"It might seem
strange to start a story
with an ending. But all
endings are also begin-
nings, we just don't
know it at the time
These are the pro-
vocative lines that
open this fictitious
novel. Eddie, the main character
of the novel, is 83 years old when
he is involved in a tragic acci-
dent. After he's killed, he's sent
on a journey throughout heaven
to meet the five people that
changed his life the most. This
book is delightedly unexpected
because most of the people Eddie
meets are distant strangers. Each
person tells a story about their life
from their point of view. Eddie is
whisked away in an Ebenezer
Scrooge-like tale in which his
brain is flooded with memories
that echo periods of his life.
This fable enables readers
to discover, chapter by chap-
ter, the deeper levels of
what makes Eddie, Eddie.
This is an entertaining
novel that keeps you
reading, page to page,
as the written word viv-
idly describes the body
language and images
captured from Albom's
imagination. It's one
of those rare stories
that dares to talk about heaven
without being preachy. It
attempts to answer the big
questions in life. The Five People
you Meet in Heaven is a good read
for any audience.

Local band sweeps nation
Four best friends
Many years ago two brothers
decided to create a band - little
did they know their creation
would lead to a whole new world
of possibilities. Growing up in
Greenville, NC, Matt and Scott
Thomas fell in love with rock 'n'
roll after watching their father
perform with his own band.
After working a couple of odd
jobs, including being lumber-
jacks, the two brothers pulled
together their creative forces to
form a band in 2001. The two
recruited their cousin, Barry
Knox and a friend, Josh McSwain
to join their band. The group's
first CD Daylight was indepen-
dently produced and ended up
selling more than 3,000 copies.
A year later in 2002 the group
soon landed a gig in New York
City allowing, big-time record
executive, David Bendeth to hear
the group play.
Bendeth realized the talent
the group exuded and soon
called them into his studio in
Hoboken, NJ. After a trial and
error process and a four day
"boot camp the band came out
with several fixed songs, and one
brand new song.
Their newer CD is entitled
Inside and has been well received
among music enthusiasts. The
band has a strong regional fol-
lowing, with more than 5,000
people on the band's e-mailing
list, and has performed with
many mainstream bands. Some
of the bands they have covered
include Alien Ant Farm, Match-
box 20, No Doubt, American
Hi-Fi, Alanis Morisette, Sugar
Ray and Chevelle. The band is
leaving soon to go on tour, which
will cover the eastern United
States. The band will be return-
ing to Pitt County for the county
fair. They will be playing with
Puddle of Mudd, Breaking Benja-
min and Smile Empty Soul.
Despite their huge following,
their impressive covers and their
incredible sound, the guys are
all still good ole North Carolina
When writing their album,
the guys worked in a barn in
Parmalee, NC, about 20 min-
utes outside of Greenville. The
small town is where the band
got its name from. Parmalee still
practices in the old barn, and
will continue to practice in this
They say it's apart of what
their band has become. All the
people in the town know who
these young rockers are, and are
very positive about their music.
Parmalee will be playing at
Pantana Bob's (PB's) on Saturday,
Sept. 11, the doors open at 8:30
p.m. and the music will begin at
9:30 p.m. Special guests include
Copper and Last Year's Model.

should check out Parmalee's Web

with four touchdowns. That's
pretty good for a running back
that didn't even start.
No. 10 West Virginia domi-
nated ECU in the trenches on

to a 56-23 win Saturday night.
In front of 59,172 fans, WVU

"1 expect us to play a lot
better. This is not our best per-
formance. I'm happy we won, but
I am not happy with the way we
played said WVU Head Coach
Returning 17 starters, Rodri-
guez knew he had more experi-
ence on the line and exploited J
ECU'S weaknesses all night long. "
The game had a strange feel
to It for the Pirates before it even
started. A mistake was made
when the WVU won the coin
toss and deferred to the second
half. However, ECU still chose to
kick the ball. It allowed for WVU
to receive the ball at the start of
It didn't get much better
when WVU scored within the
first two minutes of the game on
a Jason Colson one-yard touch-
down run. From that point on,
the Pirates were forced to play
catch-up. The only problem for
ECU was no one could catch Kay-
"He (Harris) definitely
stepped up tonight. Every time
he touched the ball, I knew some-
thing big was going to happen
said senior WVU quarterback
Harris, a former minor league
baseball player, notched 337

John Thompson at the post-game
Harris did most of his damage
in the second quarter when he
amassed 168 yards on the way to

"In the second quarter, it
seemed like bombs were going
off. They were running through
us and everything went wrong
This is the third year in a row
the Mountaineers have embar-
rassed the Pirates by running

yards rushing over the past three
seasons against the Pirates. The
478 yards on the ground is the
second most yards ever given up
With two 1,000 yards rush-
ers returning for the Pirates, it
seemed that ECU would have
an advantage running the ball.
That invisible hill seemed to slow
the ECU rushing attack, which
only mounted 59 yards. Marvin
Townes and Art Brown combined
for 36 yards rushing.
The Pirates were forced to
abandon the run, which allowed
for sophomore quarterback James
Pinkney to gain valuable experi-
ence. Pinkney completed 26 of 51
passes for 322 yards with three
touchdowns and two intercep-
"James (Pinkney) looks like

better next week Thompson
Pinkney found his confi-

ing his favorite target of the
night in Edwin Rios. Rios, a
senior, finished the game with
113 yards on seven catches and
two touchdowns, all of which
totaled career highs.
"Eddie (Rios) did a good job
and made some good catches. He
will be one of our guys that will
play a lot for us said offensive
coordinator Noah Brindise.
Dropped passes was another
disappointment for the coaching

In some sports, sometimes
it's.not how many points you
score, but how many points your
opponents don't score.
The women's soccer team
used that philosophy this week-
end in two home games against
Georgia Southern and St. Fran-
cis. A young defense, along
with goalkeeper Lauren Church,
recorded back to back shut outs
here in Greenville.
The Eagles of GSU came
into Greenville for their season
opener while the Pirates
had already seen action In
an earlier game at Virginia.
The Eagles were coming off a
5-14-1 season and wanted to start
their season off strong, but the
Pirates had other plans.
In the 28th minute of play,
Sarah Stoltz hit Meghan McCal-
lion with a pass, who then set
up Carmen Calpo for what
proved to be the game-winning
goal. Later, Stoltz would be the
anchor of the second goal as she
fired a laser pass to Calpo. Calpo
returned the assist to McCal-
lion as she scored the insurance
goal and the Lady Pirates won
2-0. The defense only allowed
four shots on goal.
Senior Megan Schwanke, a
co-captain and the only senior
on the defensive side of the
field, was happy with the play
of the Pirates, especially the
"(Georgia Southern) didn't
get many scoring opportunities
"The freshmen really stepped
up. This was a big improvement-
from the Virginia game. We
are still getting used to playing
with each other. All we can do is
improve each game �
The momentum and domi-
nation on defense continued
Sunday against the Red Flash
of St. Francis. The Pirates would
win this one 2-0 as well, with
goals coming from Tracey Fitzger-
ald and Patty Pierce, both scoring
their first collegiate goals.
If the Pirates controlled
the previous game, then they
completely dominated the St.
Francis game. Church only had
to make one save in net, mainly
because the defense was not
allowing the ball to get to Church.
Schwanke was impressed by the
way her teammates played.
"Shutouts are very impor-
tant Schwanke said.
"(Defenders) don't get
much credit for shutouts, but
we want them as much as goal-
keepers. Lauren (Church) made
a great save and bailed us out

There is no arrogant swagger
among the Carolina Panthers, no
bold predictions that they will
walk straight back into the Super
Bowl this season.
Instead, there's a quiet con-
fidence and an internal expec-

champions are poised for another

Easier said than done.
The Panthers are a far differ-
ent team than a year ago when
they surprised the NFL by rolling
nto the first Super Bowl appear-
ance in franchise history.
The offensive line has been
completely overhauled, the
changes evident in the pre-
season with Carolina's inability
to open up running room for

Muhammad will be an integral
The secondary, Carolina's
obvious weakness last year, has
been wiped out, safety Mike Minter
is the only returning starter.
And the defensive line, the
heartbeat of Carolina's vaunted
defense, has been thinned by
injuries to key backups.
The changes have the Pan-
thers believing they are right back
part of the Carolina offense,
where they've always been, writ-
ten off by the competition as one-
year wonders, incapable of repeat-
ing the success of last season.

have to go out and show cats that

It will start with the offense,
built around Davis, quarterback
Jake Delhomme and receiver
The burden will fall on Del-
homme to add versatility to the
offense through an effective pass-
ing game. Although Delhomme
hit his stride during Carolina's
playoff run, throwing the ball
was often a last-ditch option
during the 2003 season and usu-
ally had mixed results: He threw
for 3,219 yards with 19 touch-
downs and 16 interceptions.
ECU'S volleyball team came
into last weekend's City Hotel &
Bistro Invitational with "repeat"
on their minds. The Lady Pirates
swept through the tournament
last year defeating all four of their
opponents and were looking to
do the same in the tournament
After coming off a sweep
of UNC-Wilmington earlier in
the week, the Lady Pirates had
momentum and confidence
on their side as they looked to
continue their winning streak.
With no returning colleges from
last year's tournament competing
again this year, the possibility of
another sweep in this year's tour-
nament proved to be a greater
The Lady Pirates were able
to kick off the tournament on
the right foot with a 3-1 match
victory over High Point. The
game scores were 30-21, 30-
21, 24-30 and 30-26. Junior
Erica Wilson led ECU with 16
kills and 13 digs, resulting in her
first double-double of the season.
In the second game of the
day, ECU faced Furman. Furman
handed ECU their first loss last
season breaking their six-game
winning streak. Unfortunately
for the Lady Pirates, history
repeated Itself again with Furman
winning, this time 3-2. The
scores in this best of five series
were 30-28, 28-30, 31-29, 30-32
The Lady Pirates were able
to bounce back from their loss
to Furman the next day with a
3-1 defeat of Mercer. ECU put
up wins of 30-26, 30-20 and
30-25, while Mercer had only
one victory at 28-30. Junior
middle blocker Paige Howell
posted a career-high of 24 kills
in the victory.
ECU tried to finish with
a win as they faced the last
team in the tourney - Lamar.
Despite the Lady Pirates' efforts,
ECU fell 3-1 as Lamar went
on to win the tournament.
The scores of the final game
were 25-30,30-23,31-29and 30-18.
Howell was the only player
from ECU who made the all-
tournament team. She had a
tournament total of 64 kills and
