ECU, UNC officials celebrate
Rivers Building expansion
The ECU community
celebrated the completion of
the Thomas W. Rivers Building
expansion Sept. 11 with a ribbon
cutting ceremony.
UNC President Molly
Corbett Broad and UNC Board
of Governors Vice Chairman J.
Craig Souza congratulated ECU
leaders on their latest
achievement and pointed
to the Rivers Building as
just one example of the
momentum building in eastern
North Carolina.
"This is a wonderful part
of the new era of transforma-
tion and rebuilding of ECU. It
really was the bond vote cast so
overwhelmingly by the
citizens of North Carolina that
has been instrumental in this
transformation said Broad.
The $11.9 million project,
paid for by the $190 million ECU
received in 2000 as part of the
North Carolina Higher Education
Facilities Bond program, pro-
vides 38,000 square feet of new
classroom and faculty office space
for the school of nursing and the
college of human ecology.
ECU Chancellor Steve
Ballard said the completion of
the Rivers Building would help
contribute to the quality of the
university's academic pro-
grams, as well as respond to the
continuing demand for space as
enrollment figures rise.
"This is just one indicator
of a vibrant, growing academic
community that will make a
significant difference to ECU and
to the state of North Carolina
Ballard said.
"This is a university that has
huge growth potential, and we
want to make sure we have the
resources and academic spaces
available. The Rivers Building
is just one sign that this is pos-
sible
The building reopened
just before the start of the fall
2004 semester and is home
to the school of nursing and
a number of schools within
the college of human ecology,
including: child development and
family relations, interior
design and merchandising,
criminal justice, social work
and nutrition and hospitality
management.
Built in 1968, the building
was named for longtime ECU
advocate Thomas W. Rivers,
who in 1987, made the first
$1 million contribution to ECU
for academic purposes.

Republican nominee
presents his plans to
improve North Carolina
NICK HENNE
NEWS EDITOR
Patrick Ballantine,
Republican nominee for North
Carolina Governor delivered a
brief speech
outside the
Wright Audi-
torium on
ECU'S campus
Monday
afternoon and
presented his plans to improve
the lives of North Carolina
residents.
Ballantine said he plans
on securing jobs for people in
North Carolina helping to ensure
college students are given decent
employment opportunities
after graduation.
"I know that when you get
out of school you're going to need
a good job, you're going to care
about trying to make a living and
pay the bills and we're going to
need new vibrant bold leadership
in North Carolina to get that
done said Ballantine.
"We are truly at a crossroads
in our state and we have to decide
if we want to be the best in the
south
Ballantine said he hopes that
young people are inspired to get
involved with the upcoming
elections because it is about their
future and the future of North
Carolina.
He said he encourages all
young people to pay attention to
the election, and visit his Web site
at Ballantineforgovernor.com.
Ballantine said he is aware
of the opportunities here in
Greenville with ECU and the new
cardiovascular center.
"ECU is the largest economic
engine in the east we have to
make sure that its running on all
cylinders Ballantine said.
Health care is a
growing industry and we want
to make sure ECU is a leader in
health care in the state and the
country he said. Medicaid is out
of control, we have to modernize
the system.
"We need to shift money
around in the Medicaid system
so that it can actually deliver
the services to the poor and
disabled Ballantine said.
One of the major Issues
he plans on addressing is
improving jobs. He plans on
creating a business plan in North
Carolina to provide hope and
opportunity to anyone who
wants to excel.
"I have a comprehensive plan
that will lower taxes, improve
education, improve roads and
deliver health care at an afford-
able cost Ballantine said.
"Those are key components
of a business plan that I have to
make sure that we can complete,
to make sure we can bring new
jobs to our state
Sam Davis, former candidate
for the first congressional district
in eastern North Carolina said
Ballantine is aware of the prob-
lems faced by eastern North
Carolina and what needs to be
addressed.
Davis said Ballantine shares
the conservative values of east-
ern North Carolina and his
message is resonating with
conservative democrats in
eastern North Carolina with his
message of cutting taxes and
fiscal responsibility.
Governor Easley has with-
held reimbursements including
tangible, inventory, food sales,
taxes. This had a large impact
on the smaller cities of North
Carolina
"I think he will do a great
deal of good in eastern North
Carolina Davis said.
Diane Miller, graduate stu-
dent of ECU and the president
of the College Republicans said
Ballantine is very much aware of
ECU education initiatives, and
plans on helping ECU succeed.
He is also knowledgeable about
the state of North Carolina's
problems and what must be done
to overcome them.
Kyle Jones, sophomore
political science major said his
father is a small business owner
and supports Ballantine for his
tax and health care plans.
"Small businesses would
definitely be better under Patrick
Ballantine said Jones.

Hawkins named interim vice chancellor
Facilities, more office
space on priority list
KRISTIN DAY
STAFF WRITER
Charles Hawkins, former
senior associate vice chancellor,
was recently promoted to ECU'S
interim vice chancellor of admin-
istration and finance.
Hawkins' new responsibilities
now include everything from
payroll to all the facilities on
campus.
"It's challenging, but fun
said Hawkins.
Hawkins said his job is to sup-
port the campus and the chancel-
lors so the academic mission can
move forward. Currently, he is
working with academic affairs
and the school of medicine.
"I am working close with
the vice chancellor of research
infrastructure so (we) support
our faculty and move forward in
research Hawkins said.
Steve Ballard, ECU'S chancel-
lor is currently looking over a
list of priorities and will inform
Hawkins of the projects needing
immediate attention.
Hawkins said he will continue
to look at facilities and office

space needs.
Hawkins said ECU has a large
enrollment projected, which he
calls a good problem.
According to Hawkins, ECU is
hiring new faculty all the time to
accompany these students. This
year, 97 new faculty members
were added.
He said ECU is currently con-
sidering turning Slay Residence
Hall into office space and build-
ing additional residence halls.
Hawkins graduated from the
University of Michigan. He also
worked there as assistant associ-
ate of accounting. He came to
ECU about five years ago taking
the associate vice chancellor
position. He was named senior
vice chancellor in July 2002.
Positions for senior vice
chancellor and vice chancellor
are currently vacant, and Ballard
Is conducting a search to fill those
positions.
ECU students expressed
their own opinions of what areas
of campus needed the most
work.
Nlkki Graham, health fitness
major, said she would rather see
money be used to Improve ECU'S
parking situation.
"I think parking here is abso-
lutely terrible for students I'd
rather have a parking deck said
Graham.
Other students complained
about the lack of air condition-
ing in the dorms and need of
additional space in buildings on
campus.
Ashley Smith, criminal justice
major said classrooms, especially
in Brewster, should be bigger.
"There's not enough chairs
everyone's really compact
said Smith.
Matt London, criminal jus-
tice major thinks some buildings
should be expanded for efficiency
reasons.
"Expand the financial aid
building so you don't have to
stand in line for four and a half
hours said London.

NEWS EDITOR
Larissa Molles, ECU student
in exercise physiology died in
Pitt County Memorial Hospital

ride with several of her friends.
Members of Molles's family,
East Carolina Velo cycling

attended the funeral, which was
held in Kannapolis, NC Friday,
Sept. 10 at 2 p.m. Lucas Liver-
mon, Molles's boyfriend who
recently became a professional
cyclist, had planned on purchas-
ing Molles an engagement ring
before the accident. He ended up
still buying her the ring and gave
it to her at the funeral.
"She was outgoing, had a
great personality, amazing smile,
passionate, she had an amazing
ability to make anybody feel
like they could do anything. She
could change someone's life with
a simple smile said Livermon.
Livermon remembers Larissa
as being an athletic, devoted
Christian who participated in
MOLLES
missions work with Russia since
she was IS. She was also involved
in fund raising events.
Rhiannon Scheldt, senior
sculpting major and a friend of
Molles, was also with Molles at

"She was the most amazing
person I'd ever met. She had an
exuberance about life that spilled
out to everyone around her said
Scheldt.

ECVelo cycling club said Molles

Condoleezza Rice visits two
North Carolina colleges
CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) - National
Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice
visited two North Carolina universities
Monday, including the historically
black college that her father attended
in the 1940s.
Speaking to students at Johnson C
Smith University, Rice said she felt
at home.
"I can feel that it kept the same heart
and soul that it had when my father
when here, and I remember as a little
girl she said. Her father, John Rice,
graduated from the college in 1946.
"I am a big supporter of historically
black colleges Rice said in a
speech. They provided educational
opportunities at a time when no one
else would for black Americans
Rice, who also spoke later Monday
at Wingate University's Austin
Auditorium as part of that school's
Jesse Helms lecture series, told the
Johnson C. Smith students that her
father's generation eventually led the
civil rights struggle in the 1960s.
Her mother also attended a
historically black college in Alabama.
Rice assumed the position of national
security adviser in 2001. A professor
of political science, she served on
Stanford University's faculty, starting
in 1981, and served six years as
provost.
Bowles unveils health care plan
to Charlotte voters
CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) - Democratic
Senate candidate Erskine Bowles
toured in support of his health care
reform proposal Tuesday, calling it a
"moral issue" that he plans to tackle
immediately if elected in November.
"I want to champion this cause
Bowles said after he addressed
about 40 supporters outside the
Grace Medical Clinic, a newfy-opened
facility providing care for the needy.
"I think I can bring people from both
sides of the aisle together.
This is not a Democratic issue or a
Republican issue Bowles added.
"It's an American issue. And we have
a crisis on our hands"
Bowles, a Charlotte businessman
who is faces Republican U.S. Rep.
Richard Burr in the Nov. 2 general
election, highlighted some of the ideas
contained in a 16-page brochure, "A
Health Care Plan for North Carolina
that he released Monday. Bowles
spent Monday and Tuesday touring
the state to publicize the plan.
"We don't have a health care crisis
in this country he said. "We have

Suspect in slaying two NYC
detectives pleads not guilty;
police union wants man to face
death penalty
NEW YORK (AP) - Slumped in a
wheelchair in a courtroom packed
with mourning police officers, the
man accused of killing two veteran
detectives with one of their pistols
pleaded not guilty to first-degree
murder charges Monday afternoon.
Prosecutors cannot seek the death
penalty for Marlon Legere, 28,
because of a June ruling by New
York's highest court that found a key
element of the state's death penalty
law was unconstitutional, prosecutor
Kenneth Taub said.
Outside the courtroom in downtown
Brooklyn, police union officials said
the killing of Detectives Robert Parker,
43, and Patrick Rafferty, 39, cried out
for the death penalty, and they called
on the Legislature to amend the law.
The death penalty should have been
in place said Patrick Lynch, president
of the Patrolmen's Benevolent
Association. "We have to fix that
problem
A spokeswoman for Gov. George
Pataki said death penalty legislation,
which has passed the Senate but
not the Assembly, could apply
retroactively in pending cases
including Legere's. But Legere's
court-appointed attorney, Wayne
Bodden, said he did not believe a new
law could apply to his case.
Chief who hired woman
firefighter remembers
her as skilled leader
ARNOLD, Calif. (AP) - The California
fire chief who hired the woman
firefighter killed in a wild land blaze
near Yosemite National Park says she
was a skilled, natural leader.
Eva Schicke (SHY-kee) died Sunday
when flames overran her elite seven-
member crew in a rugged canyon.
Officials say a sudden wind shift
may have played a role. Schicke
was the first female firefighter killed
on duty from California's Forestry
Department.
Battalion Chief Jeff Millar (muh-LAR')
says he recruited Schicke more than
four years ago after watching her
skills and leadership as a guard on
the Cal State-Stanislaus basketball
team. Millar's wife was the coach.
Mourners in the town of Arnold
have put up a roadside memorial
that includes flowers and balloons
arranged between a pair of boots, a
helmet gloves and a shovel. A bulletin
board included notes from friends
and colleagues.

Protester dressed as Batman
scales Buckingham Palace In
embarrassment for security
LONDON (AP) - Holy intruder! A
protester dressed in a Batman
costume scaled the front wall of
Buckingham Palace on Monday and
perched for more than five hours on
a ledge near the balcony where the
royal family appears on ceremonial
occasions.
The protester's success in climbing
the wall in front of the queen's
main residence prompted fresh
questions about the much-criticized
and recently overtiauled royal security
operation.
"It's not good enough and we
want to know how this happened
Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir
John Stevens told British Broadcasting
Corp. radio.
Two police officers in a cherry-picker
crane removed the protester, Jason
Hatch, from the ledge at about 7:15
p.m 5 12 hours after he climbed
up. His Batman mask removed and
a white helmet placed on his head,
he waved and clapped as the crane
lowered him to the ground.
Hatch, 33, from Gloucester, is a
member of the Fathers 4 Justice
group, which is campaigning for
greater custody rights for divorced
or separated fathers and has staged
a number of prominent stunts to
promote their cause.
No member of the royal family was at
the palace Monday. Queen Elizabeth
II was at her Balmoral residence in
Scotland.
Celebrating 150 years of their
national anthem, Mexicans plan
worldwide sing-along
MEXICO CITY (AP) - Warning: If a co-
worker or stranger suddenly jumps up
and starts singing Wednesday, don't
be alarmed. They aren't crazy. They
are just Mexicans participating in a
worldwide call to song to celebrate
150 years of their national anthem.
An ad campaign is calling on all
Mexicans - wherever they are - to
stop what they are doing at noon
Wednesday (1 p.m. EDT), the eve of
Mexico's Independence Day, and sing
the rousing ode to war and country.
While the campaign is primarily
aimed at celebrating the anthem, it
has another motive: uniting a country
increasingly divided by everything
from politics to crime.
"There is a crisis of dishonesty,
fragmentation, crime said Erwin
Salas Juarez, a spokesman for the
nonprofit council organizing the
campaign. "We have to unite society
Organizers hope that on Wednesday,
offices will grind to a halt in the
capital, Mexicans visiting the Eiffel
Tower will stop taking photos, and
farmers will look up from their fields
to join in the anthem's first words:
"Mexicans, at the cry of battle prepare
your swords and bridle; and let the
earth tremble at its center at the roar
of the cannon
ECU student continues coursework in Iraq
Student utilizes ECU
online courses
KATIE BALDWIN
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
ECU student Enoc Rodriguez,
currently In Iraq serving as a net-
work administrator is continuing
his computer technology degree
with ECU by taking two online
courses.
"1 really want to get my B.S.
so that 1 can start getting into
management positions. I feel I
have a lot of potential in that
area said Rodriguez.
A typical day for this civilian
working on contract through the
Department of Defense, begins
with walking to the shower trail-
ers, getting dressed and eating
breakfast before working a 12-
hour shift at the communication
trailer. This is his routine five
days a week, leaving him with
two days off.
"I thought if I took some

boring Rodriguez said.
Since going to Iraq, Rodriguez
has worked in Camp Scania and is
now waiting in Baghdad until the
Army is ready for him at a new
site where he will set up and be
responsible for a network.
"The hardest thing is that
I don't have reliable internet
access when traveling from site
to site. The Internet cafes have
30-minute time limits so I have
to try to do things offline and use
my time at the cafe efficiently
Rodriguez said.
He has a desire for manage-
ment positions, which comes
from past experience as an
employee.
"I've worked for some poor
managers, whether it's because
of their people skills, organiza-
tional skills, technical knowledge
or lack thereof, I want to be in a
position where I can help people
work to their full potential and
be happy that they are doing it
Rodriguez said.
Rodriguez is well on his way
to gaining the experience he will
need to get these management
positions. He also keeps up with
the political climate of the United
States while overseas.
"I'm glad to be here
supporting the military and
the Individual soldiers, airmen

Scheldt, who recalls what
happened in the accident, said it
was solely because of the negli-
gence of the truck driver
"We were on the edge of our
lane when an oncoming pickup
truck going south completely
crossed the yellow line putting
his entire vehicle into our lane
Scheldt said.
Livermon said when he saw
the truck cross into their lane, he
turned his head in Molles's direc-
tion, but before he could make
an attempt to grab her out of the
way, she had already been hit.
Livermon reacted instantly.
"I don't even think my bike
came to a stop, I just jumped off
Livermon said.
Molles was laying face down
in the ditch leaving Livermon
in such a state of panic, he could
not tell if she had a heart rate
or breath. It turned out she was
breathing at the time and they
immediately got on the phone
to call for help.
"It was the most hopeless feel-
ing anyone could ever feel to have
a person you've been planning
your life around to be lying in a
ditch Livermon said.
The EMS arrived quickly. A
doctor who lived on the road of
the accident was on the scene
within minutes and arrange-
ments were made for Molles tc
be airlifted to the Pitt County
Memorial Hospital.
She was at the time stable
and was having a CT scan done
to find the injuries. In intensive
care, it was determined the whole
right side of her brain was com-
pletely unresponsive.
"Because it was brain activity
they said it would take a miracle
Livermon said.
Livermon said there are going
to be some major changes to
how the law handles cyclists and
how they are treated on the
road.
Livermon said the man who
was driving the truck called him to
apologize, and he does not believe
the accident was intentional.
"Because he was being neg-
ligent, and unaware of what was
going on, he killed someone's
future fiancee, daughter and
many people's best friends
Livermon said.
While her family has a lot of
support from many people, it will
still be hard to deal with everyday
life. The family is in the early
stages of pressing charges.

ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) �
Drinking water continued to be
a major issue Monday in western
North Carolina, where state
health officials said residents
should continue boiling their
water for another day.
The remnants of Hurricane
Frances - a tropical depression
by the time it reached North
Carolina last week - dumped up
to 16 inches of rain in western
North Carolina, flooding some
water systems.
Some Asheville residents
haven't had water in their taps
since Wednesday, when flood-
ing knocked out the city water
system.
Crews began restoring water
service Saturday, and the lines to
east Asheville and Black Moun-
tain were restored Monday. Ser-
vice was expected to be restored
gradually to those areas.
Most of the city's 100,000
customers had water, but areas of
Candler were dry because a large
tank was filling slowly. Custom-
ers on the far end of Leicester
Highway also had no water.
The State Department of Envi-
ronment and Natural Resources
said Monday that customers
of the Regional Water Author-
ity of Asheville and Buncombe
and Henderson counties
should bring water to a full,
rolling boil for one minute
before consuming.
Residents who cannot boil
the water should add plain house-
hold bleach (which is 4 percent
to 6 percent chlorine) using one-
fourth teaspoon per one gallon.
Shake the water and let it stand
for 30 minutes, after which water
should have a slight bleach odor.
Pregnant women should use
bottled water, which also should
be used for baby formula, state
health officials said.
Car bomb kills at least 47 near Iraqi police
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) � A
car bomb exploded near a
police station in Baghdad early
Tuesday as dozens of Iraqis
were applying to join the force,
killing at least 47 people and
wounding 114, officials said. In
Baqouba, gunmen opened fire on
a van carrying policemen home
from work, killing 11 officers and
a civilian.
The attacks were the
latest attempts by insurgents to
disrupt U.Sbacked efforts to
build a strong Iraqi police force
capable of taking over
security in many towns and cities
ahead of nationwide elections
slated for January.
In Baghdad, the blast
left a gaping 10-foot crater out-
side the station at the end of
Haifa street, a main Baghdad
thoroughfare that has been
the scene recently of fierce
clashes. Dozens of cars
parked nearby were destroyed
and shops and buildings were
badly damaged.
Paramedics and residents
picked up body parts scat-
tered across the street and put
them into boxes. Anguished
men lifted charred bodies and lay
them gently on stretchers.
Health Ministry
spokesman Saad Al-Amili said at
least 47 people were killed and
114 wounded.
An Interior Ministry offi-
cial said on condition of ano-
nymity that a suicide bomber
detonated an explosives-packed
sedan next to a cafe by the police
station where many would-be
recruits had gone to escape the
summer heat.
Angry crowds near the
site of the blast denounced
U.S. forces and interim Iraqi
Prime Minister Ayad Allawi's
government for failing
to protect police recruiting
centers.

Our View
So often in popular culture, people become
famous for the most undeserving reasons like
court cases, lawsuits and reality shows, just to
name a few.
But perhaps one of the most undeserving
people to achieve this "celebrity status" is the
former New York Times reporter, Jayson Blair.
Blair became infamous for plagiarizing and
lying in more than a dozen 77mes articles during
a period of eight months.
Shortly after the scandal was revealed to the
public, both the Times' executive editor and
managing editor also resigned from their posi-
tions.
So how does Blair make good of a situation
that not only ruined his career, but the careers
of others? He publishes a book titled, Burning
Down My Master's House: My Life at the New
York Times and goes on a college speaking
tour.
Now you may be asking yourself, as did we,
"what college in their right mind would book
such a disreputable individual to speak to the
minds of the future?" Funny you should ask,
because Wednesday, Blair will speak to stu-
dents at Winston-Salem State University.
Brian Blount, chairman of WSSU's mass com-
munication department defended his decision
to the Associated Press, stating that Blair will
offer students the chance to learn important
lessons.
"As a reporter, if you have preconceived ideas
or concepts or you believe something may
have occurred, you still have to go in there with
an open mind and become a critical thinker"
Blount told the AR
As a staff of aspiring professional journalists,
we find it hard to believe that Blair could offer
students any valuable lessons other than how
to fabricate a news story. We hope that WSSU
students remember the consequences of
Blair's mistruths and in no way treat him as a
credible media professional.
If liars and cheats are now considered viable
role models to speak at college campuses, we
can't help but wonder who'll be next? Will busi-
ness schools invite former Enron executives to
discuss business ethics?

Opinion Colunmist
Run, don't walk, to nearest bus stop
Don't give up so easily
RACHEL LANDEN
STAFF WRITER
I have no medical degree, and I've
only taken two science courses at ECU,
but nonetheless, I think I may have
stumbled upon a new disease. How do I
know this? Because I believe I am one of
many sufferers. I, too, am chronologi-
cally challenged.
Most people simply refer to this as
the tendency to be late. You know those
people you get annoyed with for always
showing up at least five minutes after
an event has begun? Well, now that you
realize they may also be chronologi-
cally challenged, let's be a little more
sympathetic.
This disease, of sorts, seems to show
up at the most inopportune times for
us. Take, for example, my experience
with bouts of it last week. No matter
how early or late in the day my classes
were, I could not seem to make it to the
bus on time for them. I didn't miss the
bus every time, but considering that it
was a short week, I missed it most of
the time.
It was a good time to have friends
who understood my chronologi-
cal challenge. Despite my lateness,
they were able to get me to class on
time.
That is also because although I was
late, I wasn't extremely late. In fact,
that probably made it all the more
painful. I would walk outside and head
toward the bus stop, notice the bus was
already loading, and find myself in a
dilemma.
Should I power walk and probably
still not make it? Should I run to try to
catch the bus, and most likely then, not
even make it? Or should I just give up,
turn around and find another way to
get to campus?
I tried all options, but they always
ended in the same result. I hurried to
the bus, only to watch the doors close
and it pull away, with me standing
somewhere outside.
Even if you aren't one of those
chronologically challenged people,
you probably still know how I felt. How
many times in life do we see something
we want, even something we need, and
yet, it is )ust out of our reach? We can
try harder, we can give it our all, or we
can give up.
What makes it even harder is
knowing that whichever we choose
might not even make a difference.
That goal, that dream, that hope just
slips away, and we watch it disappear
out of sight as we are running to it.
We know we should be on that bus,
but it doesn't matter. We can't catch
it.
It all sounds rather depressing
and hopeless, but I don't think it is
time yet to be discouraged. I may be
chronologically challenged, but I also
have an idealistic side that may be just
as dangerous.
When it looks bleak and whatever
you're hoping for or working toward Is
just beyond your grasp, don't just give
up and turn around. Power walk, or
better yet, run. The bus is waiting, and
you're supposed to be on it.
And even if you miss it today, don't
worry. It'll be back tomorrow.

All of you ECU football fans
who claim to love the team and
then parade how badly they suck
after only a 0-2 start should be
disgraced. I understand 1-13 in
the last 14 games is nothing to
do cartwheels over but it is more
than apparent that this team
is exponentially better than
last year's squad. They played a
bad first half against WFU and
it killed them. Mark my words
though, they will beat Cincinnati
en route to a four-win season.
Have faith and show support like
the 38,000-plus did for the home

ate it, be proud to have fans that
are faithful and will improve.

Letter to
the Editor
Dear editor,
Often I read the student's
comments in the Pirate Rant, and
some do surprise me, but I respect
other people's opinion.
However, the Sept. 9 edition
was very disturbing. The com-
ment doesn't disturb me as much
as the fact that it was printed.
The comment is as follows:
"If STDs are cool, ECU is the
place to be
Allow me to interpret the
acronym STD, because 1 can only
assume by printing this that the
editor is clueless to its meaning.
It stands for sexually transmitted
diseases.
I, and many others, have
worked very hard to build this
great university to a higher stan-
dard. I am truly shocked that this
would be printed.
Is it the goal of TEC to sabo-
tage ECU? There is freedom of
speech but there is also a line that
has to be drawn. I am drawing
the line. This type of banter does
not belong in TEC.

'Sky Captain' ready for cinema takeoff?
Will movie soar or
crash and burn?
GARY MCCABE
STAFF WRITER
There's an old adage that we
teach to children: "Never judge a
book by its cover That may be a
little easier said than done, when
it comes to Paramount's visually
stunning Sky Captain and the
World of Tomorrow, which will be
released Friday, Sept. 17.
With one glance at Sky Cap-
tain's trailer, it's apparent that
first-time writer and director
Kerry C6nran has created a visual
masterpiece. The creation process
began 10 years ago when Conran
created a CGI program which
gives him the ability to shoot a
film in front of a "blue screen"
and digitally insert the rest of the
film around the actors.
Conran and his brother used
this machine for four years to
create a short six-minute presen-
tation, which played on their
home computer. This presenta-
tion made the rounds in Hol-
lywood and eventually fell Into
the lap of producer Jon Avnet
Risky Business and Fried Green
Tomatoes.) Since then he has done
everything in his power to bring
Conran's vision to life. As previ-
ously mentioned, every aspect of
the film, aside from the actors,
come directly from the mind of
Kerry Conran and his crew. With
this power, Conran has been able
to create a beautiful, engaging
fantasy world, unparalleled by
any other film in history.
Speaking of actors, Conran
assembled a remarkable cast for
such a unique project with an
untested director. Sky Captain
stars Academy Award winners
Gwyneth Paltrow Shakespeare
in Love) and Angelina Jolie (Giri,
Interrupted) along with two-time
Academy Award nominee Jude
Law (Cold Mountain, The Talented

Local band celebrates release of their newest CD
Dystonic plays gig
at Peasants
REID DORSETT
STAFF WRITER
Local band, Dystonic, is the
new up and coming band in
Greenville. Their unique style
blends jazz and rock to create an
explosion of character and talent
for their recorded and live music.
Dystonic is made up of David
Dixon, Adam Whitley-Sebtl, Will
Kitchen and John Ray. Dixon,
Whitley-Sebti and Kitchen are from
Greenville, while Ray came to the
area to play with the group. During
the first practice session, the four
seemed to mesh perfectly to create
the sound they were looking for.
"I just knew from the first
time we played together that this
band would do well together
said Whitley-Sebti.
"The good thing is that all these
guys are dedicated to the band as
a full-time position, it's not just
a weekend thing said Dixon.
This is important because they
want fans to know that they are not
just another band, but one that is
dedicated to the fans and each other.
"We want fans to get a taste of
our personalities and how we feel
about the music Dixon said.
To do this they have made
their first self-titled CD enhanced
so that listeners may also see
behind the scenes footage of the
band recording. It can be found
by playing the CD on almost any
Mac or PC. The footage is full of
character which was seen in the
friendly banter of members Adam
Whitley-Sebti and David Dixon
during an interview this past Sat-
urday and on the entire group on
the enhanced CD. Unfortunately,
members John Ray and Will
Kitchen could not be present.
The band Dystonic, pictured above,
The CD is carefully crafted
to please listeners of many styles
of music. It is produced by David
Wolfe, a former roommate of
Dixon while studying at Berkelee
College of Music in Boston. Wolfe
was excited to be involved in the
project, recording in Virginia
with additional tracks at Music
will be having a CD release at Peasants Saturday night.
Box Studio in Hamilton, NC. The
band has the same excitement
towards Wolfe feeling that he has
a huge talent in producing that
exceeds many others.
"We feel our music has come
a long way while working with a
producer like Wolfe said Whit-
ley-Sebti, "both in the studio and
on stage our music is at a new

Cuban's ratings could be
low from all the viewers that
tune in to "7th Heaven" to hear
about Simon Camden having
premarital sex, and to see Ruthie
Camden gushing over heart-
throb Aaron Carter.
So maybe that is a bit of a
stretch, but don't worry Monday-
night viewers, you still have
your Monday-night football,
"Everybody Loves Raymond"
and a returning season of "The
Swan" and "CS1: Miami If that
is not enough drama for you, the
new NBC airport-drama "LAX"
starring Heather Locklear and
Blair Underwood will hopefully
have a smoother takeoff then its
current reviews.
Tuesday night starts look-
ing more promising, unless you
jump to UPN's 8:30 p.m. slot that
is filled by rapper, Eve. Everyone
is allowed to have their own
opinion, yet not many can look
past the fact that Eve stars in the
sitcom, "Eve yet the character
she plays is named Shelly. And
if that doesn't make any sense,
chances are the show won't either.
Once you get past the
rapper angle however, Tues-
day offers a bunch of oldies
but goodies like "George
Lopez "Average Joe "Gilm-
ore Girls" and "One Tree Hill
In this season of "Gilmore
Girls Lorelai may finally get
together with Luke, something
the show has been slowly hint-
ing at for far too many seasons.
WB's still young "One Tree Hill
which has been deemed the
"Dawson's Creek shadow" show,
plans on taking a more comedic
approach to life's problems that
the two rival brothers and their
families encounter.
"One Tree Hill" may need
more then a few laughs however,
to keep their ratings up against
Fox's similar prime time show
"The O.C "The O.C plans
on having plenty of "hot love"
and drama-filled romance this
season. Characters Marissa, Seth,
Ryan and Summer are all being
confronted with new love inter-
ests, something that will bring
more heat and more twists to the
already-promising plot.
Since the core of most TV
shows is in fact the topic of
love, it is no surprise that ABC
is coming out with a new reality
show called "Wife Swap which
begins at 10 p.m. Wednesday
night. "Wife Swap where obvi-
ously, two wives switch families,
sounds just like Fox's "Trading
Spouses" reality show where two
spouses trade families as well.
Where is the originality?
The creativity? Viewers may be
asking these and countless other
questions when viewing the TV
lineup for this fall.
For instance, "Joey
His "Friends" have all grown
up and moved on. So the ques-
tion (maybe worth asking) is
what happened to Joey Tribbiani?
"Friends" TV producers decided
this question needed to be
answered by giving Matt Leblanc
who plays Joey, his own show.
Joey is hitting it big time by
moving out to L.A. in search of a
serious acting career, living with
his sister's rock-scientist kid, and
acting like a goof-ball all the while.
Hopefully, "Joey" will sur-
vive on its "Friends" foundation
against the tough "O.C and
"Survivor which viewers can
tune in to at 8 p.m. on Thursday
as well. It's just a good thing "Life
as We Know It a new series star-
ing lots of random boys and Kelly
Osbourne isn't trying to com-
pete during that time slot too.
"Life As We Know It" is currently
described as a show about guys'
thoughts and feelings, most of which
revolve around sex and more sex.
So, if viewers are sick of love,
sex and drama by Friday, they
can tune into WB for "Com-
mando Nanny The new series
is based upon the day-to-day
struggles a former British Spe-
cial Forces soldier has when he
becomes the nanny for three
Beverly Hill kids.
This lighter-themed show
runs similarly against the comedy,
"Two and a Half Men" which
stars Charlie Sheen. Sheen's
character struggles to live in an
adult world while still maintain-
ing a tasteful environment for
his brother and his brother's son
who live with him.
Since the comedies, the
dramas and the reality TV shows
do not really appear on Satur-
day's schedule, Sunday becomes
another big prime-time for TV.
Familiar shows like Steve Har-
vey's "Big Time "Cold Case
"Alias" and "Crossing Jordan"
continue to survive through the
TV ratings, but leave channels
with enough room for new shows
like "Jack & Bobby
"Jack & Bobby" is a new WB
series, which follows the lives
of two brothers, one of which
will futuristically become the
president, and how they survive
with their self-absorbed, dys-
functional mother.
The show has been reviewed
as a promising, fresh new drama,
but it is up to the viewers to
decide the fate of "Jack & Bobby
and countless other shows that
appear on the fall TV roster.
There may be a lack of cre-
ativity (as many of the shows
seem synonymous with each
other), however each new show
brings fresh faces and issues
into the TV viewer's home. The
returning shows this fall have
also integrated new talent into
their plots, making it easier for
TV viewers to find something
they all can enjoy.
Reality is still reality, and

though, with great star power
and great effects, but somehow
failed to resonate with audiences.
Films, such as Daredevil and The
Hulk placed so much emphasis
on these aspects that they forgot
what ultimately makes a film
enjoyable: the story. The films
are all flash and no substance.
So will this be the case with Sky
Captain and the World of Tomor-
row? The film's script has been
in development for more than
10 years, giving first-time screen-
writer Conran plenty of time to
perfect and hone every detail of
the story.
Sky Captain takes place in
fictional Gotham City, which
is modeled after New York City,
during the late 1930s. All of
Earth's scientists are mysteri-
ously vanishing. The Gotham
City Chronicle's ace reporter,
Polly Perkins, played by Paltrow,
is on the case. Dauntless, Perkins
does anything she can to get the
story, often times putting herself
in the line of danger. However,
the prospect of working alone
goes out the window when giant
flying robots arrive on the scene,
destroying everything in sight.
She calls in celebrated hero (and
former flame,) Sky Captain,
Joseph Sullivan, played by Law.
Joseph Sullivan is a pilot,
whose adeptness at flying and
superior marksmanship is tran-
scended only by his coura-
geousness and heart. Sullivan,
along with Perkins, whips around
the skies of Gotham City in
his Warhawk P-40, attempting
to fight off the numerous robots.
At the same time, they must dis-
cover why the robotic creatures
have come and what has become
of all of the scientists.
When things get too much
for Sky Captain to handle alone,
he looks for support. Help
comes to him in many forms
including the Flying Legion,
which is at his command.
Giovanni Ribisi (Saving Pri-
vate Ryan) plays Dex, Sullivan's
right hand man and technical
master who is just as handy
with a metal-melting ray as he
is navigating through a dogfight.
Angelina Jolie plays an inter-
esting role as Captain Franky
Cook, another ex-flame of Sul-
livan's who came between him
and Perkins. She also commands
an explosive all-female amphibi-
ous squadron, which backs the
protagonists any way it can.
Now Sky Captain and Perkins
must travel to many fantastic
lands to try and stop the evil Dr.
Totenkopf who's hell-bent on
destroying the Earth.
Sky Captain and the World of
Tomorrow is in many ways a clas-
sic adventure title. It has a very
straightforward story and distinct
protagonists and antagonists.
However, director Kerry Conran
and the producers of this film have
gone to great lengths to set it apart
from other movies in the genre.
David Foucher of Edgeboston.com
gave the film an A and called it
the breakout cinematic - and
the best film thus far - of 2004
Moriarty of Aintitcool.com
gave the film a similar rave review
of the film, particularly highlight-
ing the amazing musical score writ-
ten by Ed Shearmur, which helps
set the tone of what he calls,
the most beautifully realized fan-
tasy worlds have ever seen on film
Though reviews are sparse and
hard to find, the few reviews that
have been written have been very
positive. Jeffrey Bruner of the Des
Moines Register said it's unlike
any film you've seen this year. It
has got dazzling visuals, amazing
special effects and a fun story
- a living, breathing comic book
Bruner also compares seeing

Sky Captain piloting his P-40
Warhawk to seeing Luke Sky-
walker piloting his X-Wing in
Star Wars for the first time. The
Star Wars comparisons has been
a running theme in the early
reviews, which should make
Conran very proud of his debut
film, even if it has taken him this
long to finish it.
So to answer the opening
question, should Sky Captain
be judged by its cover? Though
the beautiful visuals of the
film set a lofty bar, it seems
as if Conran and his amazing
cast are up to the task and have
seemingly created a masterpiece.
Ina summer bursting with sequels
and formulaic films, it's nice
to see something imaginative
and original come along. When
a cast and crew feels so strongly
about a film and pour their hearts
and souls into it, such as Steven
Spielberg's Schindler's List or Mel
Gibson's Passion of the Christ, the
end result is always a memorable
movie experience. That certainly
seems to be the case with Kerry
Conran's Sky Captain and the
World of Tomorrow.

A Hypothetical Question:
If one student departs ECU at 5:00
p.m. and travels by car to the syna-
gogue four miles east of campus at
45 miles per hour, and another stu-
dent departs ECU at 5:15 p.m. and
travels by car from ECU to the syna-
gogue at 15 miles per hour, which
one would get there on time for the 8
p.m. Rosh Hashanah services?
The AnSUiei: Get real. Students
wouldn't be leaving that early.
Actually, they would be leaving cam-
pus that early because they would be
getting together before services for
dinner at 5:30 p.m.
Join other Jewish ECU students
for dinner at 5:45p.m. at China 10.
Following dinner we will attend Rosh
Hashanah services at Congregation
Bayt Shalom. Dinner will be provided

Pitcher charged
with battery
Texas Rangers reliever Frank
Francisco was arrested
Tuesday morning on a charge
of aggravated battery after he
threw a chair into the right-field
box seats and hit two spectators
in the head during Monday night's
loss to the Oakland Athletics.
One of the fans, an unidentified
woman, was bloodied and her
nose was broken. Major League
Baseball's commissioner's office
said Tuesday morning that it
was investigating. Francisco was
cooperative after he was taken
into custody, Oakland Police
Department deputy chief Peter
Ounbar said. With two outs in
the ninth inning, the Rangers'
Alfonso Soriano tied the game
5-5 with his second homer of the
night. Moments later, with Hank
Blalock at the plate, the Texas
bench and bullpen cleared. Texas
reliever Doug Brocail was seen
screaming at a male fan, and the
pitcher had to be restrained by
his teammates and bullpen coach
Mark Connor. Others also had to
be held back. Francisco threw the
chair at a fan in a lower box near
the Rangers' bullpen along the
right-field line. The chair hit one
man in the head, then bounced
and struck the woman on her
left temple.
Hurricane
postpones game
The uncertainty of Hurricane
Ivan forced postponement of
Thursday night's game between
No. 10 California and Southern
Mississippi. The hard-to-predict
Category 5 storm, one of the
most powerful hurricanes ever
to hit the Caribbean, killed at
least 68 people in a devastating
run through Barbados, Grenada,
Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.
The storm began hitting Cuba on
Monday. Cal athletic director Steve
Gladstone issued a statement
earlier Monday saying the
game had been postponed and
would probably be rescheduled
in December. Southern Miss
officials said the makeup date
will be announced by Wednesday.
Possibilities include Saturday
or Dec. 4, the only remaining
weekend neither team has a game
scheduled, Southern Miss senior
associate athletic director David
Hansen said. Rescheduling the
game, the Golden Eagles' home
opener, for this Saturday means
Southern Miss would miss out
on $140,000 in television revenue.
ESPN, which was scheduled to
broadcast the game Thursday
night, said it could not televise a
makeup game Saturday because
its lineup that day is full, Hansen
said.
Vlck pleads no contest
Suspended Virginia Tech
quarterback Marcus Vick
pleaded no contest Monday
to a misdemeanor charge of
contributing to the delinquency
of a minor after a night of
drinking with underage girls.
Vlck, younger brother of Atlanta
Falcons quarterback Michael
Vick, received a suspended 30-
day jail sentence, was fined $100
and ordered to perform 24 hours
of community service. The judge
ordered Vlck to stay away from the
teenage girls. Vick was arrested
in February with teammates Mike
Imoh and Brenden Hill after an
encounter with 14 and 15 year-
old girls at the quarterback's
apartment in Blacksburg. Tech
suspended Vick this season
and said he could possibly be
readmitted in the spring after
completing a drug education
and counseling program.
Any more criminal, athletic or
university violations would result
in permanent dismissal. Long
said Vick has told him he plans
to re-enroll at Tech this spring.
Tech spokesman Larry Hincker
said Monday that Vick's status at
the school remains unchanged.
Last month, Vick pleaded guilty
to reckless driving and no contest
to marijuana possession related
to a traffic stop this summer. As
part of a plea agreement Vick was
placed in a drug offender program
requiring 24 hours of community
service, drug counseling and
random drug tests.
ECU student takes aim at gold
Gillette holds indoor,
outdoor long jump
records for totally blind
ERIC GILMORE
STAFF WRITER
Chances are you've seen
Elexis Gillette around campus.
Chances are he hasn't seen you.
It's because Gillette is blind. But
behind Gillette's sunglasses is a
deeper story, one he can't tell you
with his eyes.
Gillette is an Olympian.
Being an Olympian is typical
for this ECU student turning 20
this October. In fact, Gillette is
the American favorite to win the
gold medal.
Gillette will spend Sept. 17
- 28 competing in the Paralym-
pic Games in Athens, Greece.
Gillette will participate in the
long-jump and the 4x100 relay.
The 2003 graduate of Athens Drive
High in Cary, NC, is the country's
top-ranked jumper in the B-l class.
The B-l division is exclusively
for completely blind athletes.
"It's the same thing and in
the same place that the Olympics
are in, but this is just with ath-
letes with physical disabilities
said Gillette.
Gillette was fifth in the IBSA
(International Blind Sports Fed-
eration) World Championships
in August 2003 in Quebec with
a jump of 19 feet, 8 inches (5.99
meters). Gillette's 4x100 relay
team finished fourth.
"Quebec was my first inter-
national competition. I jumped
behind the board so they had to
measure in front of the board
Gillette said.
Even so, the jump was an
example of why Gillette has
leaped farther than any com-
pletely blind American ever in
both indoor and outdoor track.
The News and Observer 2003
Male Athlete of the Year is ready
for Athens. Six weeks ago, the
Eagle Scout competed in the Para-
lympic trials in Sacramento, Calif.
Two weeks later, Gillette spent
Aug. 7 - 18 training with the rest
of the team at the Olympic Train-
ing Center in San Diego, Calif.
"I practiced long jump and
practiced with my relay team
Gillette said
"On a regular day, after we warm
up, we do starts for the relay. For
long jump, I did all these jumping
drills and arrangement of jumps.
I also did runway approaches
Blind long jumpers have call-
ers who stand near the jumping
board and tell them when to jump.
However, some of it is memory.
"I take 16 steps and start with
my right so I do eight on each
Gillette said.
"When I get to my 16th step,
I know when to take off
In the 4x100 relay, Gillette is
accompanied by a guide runner
who will probably carry the
baton and run beside him.
"When we run to the second
leg, we will yell 'go Gillette
said.
"That is his cue to go.
After that, we will yell stick,
so he knows to stick his hand
back
Gillette is no stranger to
competition. He recalls playing
recreation basketball and baseball
before losing his eyesight to glau-
coma in fourth grade. Glaucoma
is a genetic disease that infects
66.8 million people worldwide.
Only 6.7 million suffer from
complete blindness.
The blindness never stopped
Gillette. He wrestled his first two
years of high school. After Brian
Whitmer, a teacher at Athens
Drive, got Gillette into track and
field, he was hooked.
"My coach Whitmer trained
me a lot Gillette said.
"He was always with me. He
would motivate me and help me
out. It gave me more confidence
to try to do good. He told me
about all these events that I could
get to like the Paralympics
Whitmer volunteered at the
Michigan Blind Athletic Asso-
ciation Sports Camp for six years
and two years was the site coor-
dinator for the North Carolina
Sports Education Camp for the
Visually Impaired. It was Whit-
mer who has helped Gillette raise
money to be able to support the
training costs.
Also in high school, Gillette
earned a 3.2 GPA and received a
scholarship from the NC Council
of the Blind. More importantly
for Gillette, he was named co-
captain of his track team.
Gillette excels in class, on the field and copes with his disability with incredible optimism.
"It was really nice and a great
experience for me Gillette said.
"It just told me that my team-
mates thought of me as one of the
captains. I felt like I could help
them out and they felt like they
could help me out
The 2003 track athlete of the
year by the U.S. Association of
Blind Athletes has memorized
the ECU campus.
"I usually just let my friends
help me out Gillette said.
"I get used to knowing where
everything is. After I learned
where the buildings were, I found
everything pretty easily
Gillette is going to try and do
his best in trying to stay a full
time student.
"My professors let me out and
I'm going to do my best to keep
up with the readings and my
work Gillette said.
"They are cooperating pretty

Rugby history dates back to Middle Ages
Rules, basics for
roughest sport of all
MATTHEW FOSTER
STAFF WRITER
Rugby spawned from soccer,
and football was born from
rugby, thus, it makes sense that
today some of the terminology in
each game is the same. A person
just has to look to find the many
similarities.
From the 1100s to the 1400s,
through three kings (Edward II,
Edward the II, James 1) the sport
of rugby was outlawed. However,
during those years, players con-
tinued to play the sport in the
streets at the risk of been caught
and killed.
While playing soccer at the
Rugby School of England in 1823,
William Webb Ellis picked up the
ball in his hands and ran with it.
He had a fine disregard for the
rules of soccer as played in his
time and his style of play is the
distinctive feature of the rugby
game as played today.
Although it is worth point-
ing out that there is little in the
see RUQBY page A7 Football and soccer spawned rugby and the sport shares many of the same basic rules and principles of its predecessors
Lady Pirates stumble on road
Heidi Krug set a career high for assists (64) against Furman.
Lady Pirates swept
twice, sweep once
DAVID WASKIEWICZ
STAFF WRITER
The ECU Volleyball team
entered their long away schedule
last Friday when they traveled
to Rock Hill, SC to participate
in the Winthrop Tournament.
The Lady Pirates had just come
off a three-game sweep of North
Carolina A&T and were looking
to prove themselves on the road.
With wins in the tournament,
ECU would continue to build
momentum in pre-conference
play.
ECU opened play against
Winthrop with another sweep
in mind. Unfortunately for the
Lady Pirates, a sweep did occur
except by the hands of the Lady
Eagles. The scores finished at
30-23, 30-21 and 30-13 as Win-
throp won their first game of the
tournament. Winthrop junior
Mary Hock led the match with
19 kills in the victory.
ECU was looking to rebound
from their previous loss when
they faced UNC Greensboro the
following Saturday. ECU junior
libero Johanna Bertini was able
to pull out a career-high per-
formance of 22 digs as the Lady
Pirates came up with their own
sweep against the Lady Spartans.
ECU freshman Kelley Wernert
also put forth a career-high
record with 10 kills in the sweep.
The game scores were 30-19, 30-
24, 30-13.
The Lady Pirates weren't able
to savor their victory for long as
they fell to Belmont that evening
in three straight games, 30-22
30-28, 30-23. The Lady Bruins
out hit ECU .281 to 057 in both
team's final game of the tourna-
ment. The loss set ECU's record
at 6-4 so far this season.
Bertini was the only ECU
player selected to the all-tourna-
ment team. She totaled 42 digs
throughout the tournament
averaging 14 per game.
This week ECU continues their
long road schedule when they
take on NC State in Raleigh, NC
The Lady Pirates will then' take
part in the College of Charleston
Tournament in Charleston SC
this weekend.

The Basics of Rugby
Beyond or behind or In Front of any position implies "with
both feet except when unsulted to the context.
Dead means that the ball is for the time being out of play. This
occurs when the referee blows his whistle to indicate a stoppage
of play or when an attempt to convert a try Is unsuccessful.
Drop Kick. A drop kick Is made by letting the ball fall from
the hand (or hands) to the ground and kicking It at the first
rebound as it rises.
Mark. The mark Is the place at which a free kick or penalty
kick Is awarded.
Line Through the Mark (or place). Except where specifically
stated otherwise, the words "a line through the mark" or "a line
through the place" always means a line parallel to the touchllne.
The Llneout
A llneout Is formed by at least two players from each
team lining up in single lines parallel to the line-of-touch
way of evidence to substantiate
this view, it is the popular view.
The game was picked up by
Cambridge University where it
grew popular at area schools and
in 1871. In 1895, the first rugby
union with rules and a league'
was formed in England. Rugby
Union club level was a domi-
nant sport in England, Scotland,
Wales and Ireland. The game
was also strong in France, Italy,
Argentina, Fiji, Western Samoa,
Canada, Japan and Honk Kong
as well as New Zealand, Austra-
lia and South Africa. Although
a handful of clubs remained in
the United States, rugby did not
reemerge until the 1960s. College
campuses turned to the sport
because it was one where many
could play as a type of backlash
to football.
