Safety Walk highlights
unsafe areas on campus
Areas to be presented
to administration
KATIE SHACKLEFORD
STAFF WRITER
A campus Safety Walk held
last week as part of ECU'S Campus
Safety Week gave students and
other school officials an opportu-
nity to walk the campus to point
out potentially unsafe areas to
school officials.
In light of the attacks on stu-
dents that occurred last year, SGA
created the Safety Walk as a way
to educate students and admin-
istration about dangerous areas
on campus. Maggie O'Neill, SGA
chief of staff, said the goals of the
walk are to make the students
aware of dangerous locations
and inform the administration
of these areas.
The walk addressed issues of
adding more blue light phones,
cutting back overgrown bushes,
improving lighting in dark areas
such as on the mall and behind
Ragsdale, Student Health and Sci-
ence and Technology buildings.
"We just want to make sure
that this is a safe campus said
O'Neill.
Jonathon Redman, SGA
campus safety delegate, said the
Safety Walk of last year helped to
resolve some threatening areas
by dealing with the construc-
tion outside Mendenhall Student
Center and chaining up gates
between the Bate and Science and
Technology buildings.

The American Red Cross held
a two-day blood drive last week
in Mendenhall Student Center
and took in a total of 223 pints
of blood, with 136 alone on
Wednesday.
The drives, held on Tuesday
I l and Wednesday from 12 p.m. - 6
.� p.m were not largely publicized.
? However, once e-mails were sent
? campus wide on Wednesday
morning, students and faculty
were ready at noon to donate
blood.
Each month, the Red Cross
tries to come to ECU to run a
blood drive. They set their goal
at 110 donations per visit. Most
times they meet that goal or sur-
see SAFETY WALK page A2 pass it, as they did on Wednesday.
Redman both said the SGA hopes
to work with the community as
well as concerns for safety of off-
campus students.
The Red Cross is always striving
to recruit additional donors.
"We want to keep increasing
our blood drives on campus and
increase our goal said Jennifer
Angevine, account manager
for Pitt County American Red
Cross.
Right now, with blood levels
reaching restricted usage levels,
the need for donors is greater.
With each one pint donation, a
person is actually contributing
platelets, red blood cells and
plasma.
According to Marjorie
Hinson, a charge person for the
American Red Cross, platelets
are good for five days, plasma is
usable for up to 60 days and red
blood cells can be used for up to
45 days. The donation is usually
used within three days once it
has been tested for disease and
released for usage.

Study examines bodily

Wayne Casico, professor of
medicine and chief of the divi-
sion of cardiology at the Brody
School of Medicine, was part of
the team in a study which mea-
sured heart rate variability and
its potential harmful effects on
individuals.
On Sept. 11, 2001 a North i
Carolina highway patrolman was
wearing a halter monitor as part
of an experiment that records
the heart rhythm and heart rate
variability. The purpose of the
experiment he was participating
in was to measure the impact air
pollution had on his heart. He
was wearing the equipment on
the morning of the 911 terrorist
attacks, leading the research team
into a new study.
"What we found is that the
moment he was told of the ter-
rorist attack, he had a sudden
decrease in his heart rate vari-
ability. This means there was a
sudden influence on the central
nervous system on his heart, and
given the direction in which that
occurred, it might in other people
produce an adverse affect like
a heart attack or a rhythm prob-
lem said Cascio.
CASICO
The officer's heart rate
increased and his heart rate
variability, or the subtle beat-to-
beat changes within the heart,
decreased when he found out
about the 911 attack by phone.
Most of the time you will hear
about people who are frightened
to death Casico said. When he
got the news, there was a very
profound emotional response
which represents a fight or flight
response. Casico said the sym-
pathetic nervous system is acti-
vated while the parasympathetic
nervous system's response is
decreased. An increase in sym-
pathetic activity in patients with
heart disease is associated with
more adverse effects as the with-

Victim suffered minor

The ECU police responded to
a call reporting a male student
had been assaulted in the area
near the Brewster and the Science
and Technology Buildings on
Wednesday, Sept. IS at approxi-
mately 12:16 a.m.
The victim, who chose to
remain anonymous, said he was
walking on campus near the Sci-
ence and Technology building
and Howell Science Complex
when the two suspects attacked
him. He described the suspects
as two black males, each stand-
ing about six feet tall. One was
wearing a black shirt with yellow
writing and baggy jeans and the
other was wearing a white shirt
and black skull cap.
He said he was hit about four
times in the face giving him a
bloody nose and chipped tooth
before the suspects fled the scene.
The victim walked back to his
dormitory, which was near the
location of the incident where his
residential advisor noticed his con-
dition and called the ECU police.
The victim said he never
would have previously thought
anything like this would happen
to him and he now has a new
outlook on his safety.
"You can feel safe, but feeling
safe and being safe are two differ-

ent realities he said.
ECU'S Police Department
offers several services to students
that can prevent incidents like
this from occurring. These ser-
vices include the Safe Ride, where
students can receive rides to
anywhere on campus and some
areas off campus in vans provided
by ECU police. Students can also
use the escort service, where an
officer meets a student who feels
unsafe on campus and escorts
them to their desired location.
Students can use these services
by contacting the ECU police
through a blue light emergency
phone or a cell phone.
"Take advantage of the
Safe Ride, take advantage of
the escorts, take advantage of
any of the preventive measures
that we offer said JP smith,
administrative captain of the
ECU Police Department.
Smith said it is important to
report incidents like this as soon
as possible to help the police
track the suspect. The fact that he
waited 20 minutes after the inci-
dent occurred reduced the likeli-
hood of locating the suspects.
Smith said ECU students
need to understand the services
available to them and
be willing to take advantage of
them.
"To think tust because you're
on a college campus you're
immune to things like this hap-
pening is not true Smith said.
ECU'S campus is open allow-
ing anyone access to enter. Smith
said this should not mean stu-
dents should be over paranoid
but they should resume a healthy
paranoia to keep them aware of
the possibility that such inci-
dents may occur to them.
Incidents like this can happen
to anyone, including males and
females.
While males may have an
attitude they can take care of
themselves, that's not always the
case. Smith said males need to
give some thought to that kind
of mindset.
"You walk back and forth
from class so much, you know
the danger is there but you don't
really think about getting a police
officer, because you don't think

The Sopranos' whacks competitors, 'Angels' takes most trophies
A member of "The Sopranos" production staff kisses executive producer David Crane as the
team holds their awards for outstanding drama series at the 56th Annual Primetime Emmy
Awards Sunday, Sept. 19, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
LOS ANGELES (AP) � "The
Sopranos" finally whacked its
competitors in the best drama
category at the Emmy Awards,
ind a comedy series victory for
ratings-starved "Arrested Devel-
opment" proved SOMEBODY
was watching - but it was HBO
and its record-breaking "Angels
in America" that fluttered away
with the most trophies.
HBO's mega-hit about a New
Jersey mob family collected the
best drama Emmy on its fifth
try Sunday, and the channel's
"Sex and the City" and "Angels
in America" helped cable over-
shadow the traditional networks.
"We've put a lot of work into
it and I think we've gotten better.
It's good that it finally paid off
series creator David Chase said of
"The Sopranos which is enter-
ing its last season.
Meanwhile, the theme was
"gone, but not forgotten" in
many of the acting categories
as stars who ended their runs
as beloved characters on "The
Sopranos "Frasier" and "Sex
and the City" collected most of
the series trophies.
Drea de Matteo, who played
the ill-fated mob girlfriend Adri-
ana la Cerva on "The Sopranos
won for best drama series sup-
porting actress, while Michael
Imperioli, who played her back-
stabbing boyfriend Christopher
Moltisanti, collected supporting
drama-series actor.
"There are so many people
that are responsible for this, that
if I even try to thank any of them
right now, I might puke, choke,
cry or die. And you've already
seen me do that said de Matteo,
whose character met a grim end
last season. She's now on NBC's
"Friends" spinoff "Joey
Mirroring the concern in
Hollywood over the dwindling
number and quality of situation
comedies, the four major comedy
acting awards each went for work
in a series that has ended. Kelsey
Grammer won his fourth Emmy
for best actor in a comedy for
"Frasier" and Sarah Jessica Parker
won best actress for "Sex and the
City
"I had the most extraordinary
life on television Grammer said.
Frasier' was a gift in my life and
the people that I got to meet and
work with were the greatest and
this is just the cherry on top
David Hyde Pierce won a sup-
porting actor award for "Frasier
which ended an 11-year run this
spring, and Cynthia Nixon won
best supporting actress for "Sex
and the City
"In sitcom school they tell
you how great it is to have a long-
running show said Hyde Pierce,
"but they don't tell you how hard
it is to say goodbye
Although cable ruled the
night, Fox's "Arrested Develop-
ment" provided a rare bright spot
for broadcast television, winning
as best comedy series after a
freshman year that was critically
acclaimed but low rated.

Marvin Mitchelson, 'attorney of the
stars' dies of cancer at 76
LOS ANGELES (AP) � Marvin
M. Mitchelson, a divorce attor-
ney to the stars, often joked that
he was a poor example for his
clients: He was happily married
for 45 years.
Mitchelson, who pioneered
the legal revolution known as
"palimony" and counseled scores
of celebrities through messy
break-ups, died Saturday after
battling cancer, his longtime
publicist Sy Presten said Sunday.
He was 76.
Mitchelson pioneered pali-
mony with the Marvin vs.
Marvin case that made him a
household name in the 1970s.
In that case, Mitchelson won
a $104,000 award for Michelle
Triola Marvin, the live-in lover
of actor Lee Marvin.
Mitchelson fought for and
won her right to bring the lawsuit
and would say later that the day
she was allowed into court was
the day marriage and family law
changed forever.
The award was later over-
turned, but the concept of pali-
mony was upheld by the Cali-
fornia Supreme Court. It came
to signify a new social order for
unmarried, cohabitating part-
ners, which Mitchelson often
quipped was a commitment
with no rings attached said
Presten.
"He established a very impor-
tant precedent and others will
benefit from that even now that
he has passed away said fellow
family law and celebrity attorney
Gloria Allred, who faced Mitch-
elson in the legal arena several
times.
Following the Marvin vs.
Marvin case, Mitchelson's prac-
tice steered toward the glamor-
ous. He won a then-astonishing
$1 million settlement in his first
celebrity divorce case represent-
ing actor James Mason's wife,
Pamela.
He represented actress Joan
Collins and model Bianca Jagger
in high-stakes divorces; won mil-
lions for the ex-wife of billionaire
arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi
and took on a Saudi Arabian
sheik, Mohammed Al Fassi, in a
lawsuit that spanned two decades
and ended with an order for the
sheik to pay his estranged wife
$270 million.
Mitchelson's life and career,
however, took a dive in 1993,
when he was convicted and jailed
for evading taxes on some $2
million in Income. The state bar
suspended him and he was forced
into bankruptcy.
Mitchelson would recall later
how he wept during his first day
in federal prison in Fort Worth,
Texas, and his determination to
survive the sentence.
He became a prison appellate
attorney and helped gain free-
dom for three inmates. He also
helped others learn to read and
write and started prison French
and opera clubs.
When he was released from
prison in 1997, Mitchelson
returned to law, working as a con-
sultant for other lawyers until his
license was restored in 2000.
"I've been through a load of
stuff Mitchelson told The Asso-
ciated Press in a 2001 interview.
"I always believed you do the best
with what you have
Mitchelson Is survived by his
wife, Marcella, son Morgan, and
sister Marian Gertner.
"One of the problems that
we're seeing right now is 11th
Street and there are mostly stu-
dents living out there. There have
been a lot of robberies back there
and it's just an unsafe area so
we just want to not only make
the administration on campus
aware of these safety concerns
but the city administration as
well said O'Neill.
Todd Johnson, associate
vice chancellor of Housing and
Dinning on campus sees the
Safety Walk as a regularly
occurring event.
"I think the walk was very
informative and helpful in twb
ways, it clearly identified the prog-
ress we've made in a year in terms
of addressing some of the lighting
issues on campus said Johnson.
"It appears that with doing an
annual or semester walk we can
stay on top of potential dark and
dim areas on campus
Leigh Broccolina, junior hos-
pitality management major, said
the Safety Walk causes the stu-
dents to pay more attention to
potentially unsafe areas.

Cole Perry, junior marketing
major of ECU donated using this
procedure for the first time, after
eight past whole blood dona-
tions. Perry was pleased knowing
he could help more people with
this donation.
On average, a little less than
one pint of blood can help save
the lives of three to four people.
This seems like quite a bit, before
factoring in how often blood is
needed. According to statistics,
someone needs blood every two
seconds. The Red Cross tries to
meet these needs with numer-
ous blood drives across each
region every week. Even with
the amount of blood drives, they
sometimes do get cancelled due
to the weather or various other
reasons.
"There is a really big effort
to get people to donate every 56
days said Ernie Smith, account
manager for the American Red
Cross.
"We service 87 hospitals and
we try to reach the needs of those
87 hospitals in the mid-Atlantic
region
Those who donate know
what they are doing for others,
even if the needle does cause
some tension Smith said.
Student participants in the
blood drive, while showing some
nervousness before the proce-
dure, ended up going through
with it with no problems.
"I was real nervous afraid
of the huge needle going in my
arm, but it wasn't as bad as I
thought it was going to be said
Trey Kennedy, freshman athletic
training major.
"The hardest part is the
needle pricking your finger
Another student, Tamara
Fowler, a freshman nursing
major, felt much like Kennedy
on her fourth donation.
"I was scared, but needles and
blood don't bother me. You just
have to think of the other people
who need it said Fowler.
There are also those who are
unable to donate their blood,
be it from disease or fear of
needles.
"For folks who are not able to
donate blood they can call their
local Red Cross center and see
what volunteers are needed for
blood drives said Smith.
"They can hand out refresh-
ments or recruit more donors
Smith added that the Red
Cross is fortunate for ECU's con-
tinued support.
"Pitt County is the largest
collection area in eastern North
Carolina Smith said.
The Red Cross offers other
donations people can contribute
to. One of these is called a double
red cell donation. In this proce-
dure, a donor's red blood cells are
taken and plasma and platelets
are returned to the body. How-
ever, the requirements for this
type of donation are different
from those of a whole blood
donation due to the volume of
blood that is taken. In addition
to needing types O and B blood,
each donor must have a 40 per-
cent iron level. Male donors must
weigh no less than 150 pounds
and be no shorter than five feet,
one inch while female donors
must weigh no less than 175
pounds and must be five feet,
five inches to be a donor. This
donation uses a smaller needle
and helps save more lives.

WILMINGTON, NC (AP) �
People unaccustomed to eating
boiled peanuts have doubts
about the practice. You try to
eat one for the first time, dig-
ging your way past the soggy,
brine-soaked hull, only to haye
the thing squirt you. And, on
first taste, the soft, salty, bean-
like prize doesn't seem worth the
effort. Cece Hudson of Turkey
described the appeal of the
regional delicacy best.
"Why do we shuck oysters?
Why do we pick crab legs?" she
said. "It's like eating watermelon.
There aren't too many things you
can eat and take a bath in at the
same time
You don't eat these foods
with a knife and fork, but with
your fingers, juices running
down your arms. They're best
enjoyed unadorned, the focus
of the simplest meals and at lazy
social gatherings.
Boiled peanuts are Southern,
but not regionally ubiquitous.
Because they're made from green
peanuts, which are freshly dug,
they're mostly found in big
peanut-producing states such
as South Carolina and Georgia.
That also includes North Caro-
lina; farmers might grow more
soybeans (1.45 million acres of
them), corn and cotton, but the
105,000 acres of peanuts planted
here is only 54,000 less than the
acres allotted to tobacco.
I grew up in the heart of Vir-
ginia peanut country - there's
a whole class of peanuts named
after the state - but I had never
experienced boiled peanuts until
I moved to Wilmington.
Even then, I wasn't a fan.
Luckily, I'm not quick to judge
and happily agreed to go in
search of boiled peanuts last
week, a journey that led me from
Wilmington to Dublin, Bladen-
boro, Scotts Hill and Turkey.
Hudson's Sampson County
home was one of my last stops.
Each year, she and her husband
Jart host a boiled peanut party
that coincides with the first
weeks of their peanut harvest and
the birthday of their oldest child.
It was there, seated in a circle
of folding chairs on a concrete-
floor garage, eating plate after
plate of boiled peanuts with
the 60 or so other guests, that I
wondered, "Why am I enjoying
this so much?"
After Hudson's explanation,
it made perfect sense. Even
though my family always ate
roasted peanuts, the experience
of eating mushier ones recalled
other memories, of being sticky
with watermelon juice or fishing
meat out of crab legs.
"Both of our families boiled
peanuts, we both grew up eating
boiled peanuts Hudson said.
Sunday was her fifth annual
boiled peanut party. The five bush-
els of peanuts she served came
from the fields near her house.
Her husband and farm workers
had dug them that morning.
"Everybody enjoys it. It's not
a fancy party she said.
The focus is on a few home-
made treats. The peanuts had the
starring role, as guests scooped
them warm by the cupful from
coolers. Diners could satisfy their
sweet tooths by trying home-
made ice cream - one freezer was
full of strawberry and one was
full of peach - and a chocolate
pound cake.
"Grandma made the pound
cake Hudson said.
In an article in the upcoming
Southern food writing anthol-
ogy "Cornbread Nation 2
John Martin Taylor, author of
"Hoppin' John's Lowcountry
Cooking tries to trace the
origins of boiled peanuts but
finds only murky answers. There
are no records of the treat in
18th- and 19th-century publica-
tions.
Milton Harrell, 73, said he's
been eating boiled peanuts for
more than 60 years. The North
Carolina native's first experi-
ence with them is closely tied to
tobacco harvests.
He remembers long nights
of curing the leaves, before the
days of oil or gas burners, when
the process had to be closely
watched. The workers would
have a pot of peanuts on to boil,
and maybe a stewed chicken, to
keep them going through the
night.
At the time, Harrell could buy
a bag with a couple of handfuls
of peanuts for 10 cents. These
days, a bag will cost $l-$3.
At his produce stand off
Market Street near Porters Neck,
Harrell sells peaches, home-
grown tomatoes and okra. He
also makes boiled peanuts when
they're in season.
"Most people are just digging
the plants now he said.
Hudson said that's another
reason for boiled peanuts' appeal.
When many Southern fruits and
vegetables are past their peak, the
peanuts are just coming in.
"The peanuts aren't at full
maturity she said. In a few more
weeks, the bulk of the harvested
peanut crop will go to more
traditional purposes. About half
of all peanuts raised are used
to make peanut butter. But the
younger nuts, the ones that are
ready now, make the best boiled
peanuts.
Hudson usually starts by
cleaning the nuts in three washes
of cold, clear water.
Every boiled peanut maker
has his or her own touch with
the amount of salt, water and
time. The kind of peanut used
also makes a difference in texture
and taste.
The Virginia peanut family is
larger than the smaller, rounder
Spanish peanut family. Harrell
prefers the smaller varieties.

drawal of the parasympathetic
activity.
The heart rhythm is under
control of the central nervous
system and there are two limbs
of that nervous system that play
a role, the sympathetic system
which increases the heart rate and
dominates during the day and the
parasympathetic system, which
slows the heart rate down and is
active while a person is sleeping.
"What we saw was a sudden
shift with the nervous system's
control of the heart Caslco said.
"Thist could be a stimulus
that could be sufficient to cause
a heart attack or an abnormal
rhythm
An abnormal heart rhythm
could lead to the loss of con-
sciousness or death.
Other traumatic events have
produced similar effects to a
person's heart rate variability
Including earthquakes. Since
the officer who was measured in
the study was relatively young
and in relatively good health,
his body was able to respond
to the sudden changes in heart
rate variability. However, such a
change in an older person with
a weaker heart could cause more
serious problems.
Caslco said this study was
more of an anecdotal observa-
tion, but it does point out a
strong association between emo-
tional stress and heart responses
and is something that must be
kept in mind by clinicians.
Although the risk of devel-
oping an emotional response
like post traumatic stress syn-
drome was greatest with people
living within the New
York area, it was present
throughout the United States.
Post-traumatic stress syndrome
is associated with decreased
heart rate variability suggesting
a link between cardiac function
and central nervous system
function and a person's
emotional state.
"It would be my recom-
mendation for future studies
to include the cardiovascular
component to better understand
the effects of emotion on heart
disease Casico said.
There are a lot of studies
going on about the health effects
of the 911 attacks being studied
at both the state and federal level.
Casico received his under-
graduate degree from John
Hopkins University in 1977. He
went to the University of Maryland
for medical school and graduated
in 1980. He worked at UNC Chapel
Hill and did an internship in medi-
cine and cardiology fellowship. He
went to the University of Bern in
Switzerland and worked as an
assistant before returning to
the faculty of UNC until 1997.
Casico arrived in Greenville
this past June and plans on
staying here.

Our View
With the recent assaults and robberies within
the campus and surrounding area, TEC feels
it is necessary to remind students to exercise
extreme caution when walking alone at night.
Situations like this, however unfortunate, remind
us as a community that we can never be too safe.
Following is a list from SecurityOnCampus.org
to help keep you safe and acting smart:
- Freshmen should "respectfully decline" to
have photo and personal information published
for distribution to the campus community. Fra-
ternities and upperclassmen have abused this
type of publication to "target" naive freshmen.
- Study the campus and neighborhood with
respect to routes between your residence and
classactivities schedule. Know where emer-
gency phones are located.
- Share your classactivities schedule with
parents and a network of close friends, effec-
tively creating a type of "buddy" system. Give
network telephone numbers to your parents,
advisors and friends.
- Always travel in groups. Use a shuttle service after
dark. Never walk alone at night. Avoid "shortcuts
- Survey the campus, academic buildings,
residence halls and other facilities while
classes are in session and after dark to see
that buildings, walkways and parking lots are
adequately secured, lit and patrolled. Are emer-
gency phones, escorts and shuttle services
adequate?

- Doors and windows to your residence hall
should be equipped with quality locking mech-
anisms. Room doors should be equipped with
peep holes and deadbolts. Always lock them
when you are absent. Do not loan out your key.
Rekey locks when a key is lost or stolen.
- Always lock your doors and first and second
floor windows at night. Never compromise your
safety for a roommate who asks you to leave
the door unlocked.
- Do not leave your identification, wallets,
checkbooks, jewelry, cameras and other valu-
ables in open view.
- Program your phone's speed dial memory
with emergency numbers that include family
and friends.
- Know your neighbors and don't be reluctant to
report illegal activities and suspicious loitering.

Well, in the last few months or
so we have seen just how desperate
and hypocritical the Democrats and
the major media have become, and
also how low they will sink in order
to defeat President Bush. Not to elect
Kerry, but to defeat President Bush.
There is a major difference.
Let's take a look-see at some shin-
ing (like a dying star) examples, shall
we? These are in no particular order, so
bear with me.
First, John Kerry is an idiot and
should never be allowed to govern a
Scout troop let alone the United States.
Hey, this is not my opinion! By the
standards the Democrats and press use
for President Bush this, or something
very similar, should have appeared on
the front page of every major newspaper
and aired on every television and radio
newscast in the country. Why?
Because Kerry had a slip of the
tongue and called the Green Bay
Packers' (that's a football team for all
you non-sports fanatics) home field
Lambert instead of Lambeau. That is a
sacrilege! Where's the press wringing
their hands and pontificating like they
do when President Bush's misspeaks,
saying the man is too dumb to lead the
nation? Where were all the jokemeisters
yucking it up at Kerry's expense? Better
yet, how many of you even knew that
it had happened? Anyone?
How can we expect someone to
calmly lead the nation through a
crisis when he can't even keep himself
from "flipping the bird" at a Vietnam
veteran? That's what John Kerry did
to a veteran named Ted Sampley, a
local man from Kinston, a couple of
months ago in front of the Vietnam
Memorial and also in front of a group
of school children. The press was
there, they saw it, or should have.
How many of you saw that incident
reported in the papers? How about
shown on the nightly news or trashed
on the weekend talk shows? Anybody?
Now why do you think that is?
Could it be that the press was looking
the other way at the exact time these
incidents occurred? Had Kerry's speech
put them to sleep? Or was it because the
media's liberal bias prevents them from
reporting anything that will hurt Kerry
or, conversely, help Bush?
The one lie that the press helps
Kerry, the Democrats and the press
spread that really bothers me though
is that President Bush's tax cut go only
to the "rich Let's look at their defini-
tion of "rich shall we? According to
IRS figures, the top 50 percent of wage
earners pay more than 95 percent of
income taxes. The yearly income range
for this top 50 percent is from around
$27,000 and up. The lower 50 percent
of wage earners, those making less than
$27,000 a year pay less than five percent
of income taxes.
Congratulations! By the standards
of the Democrats and the press, almost
every member of ECU'S staff and fac-
ulty, as well as numerous students, are
rich or come from rich families! How's
it feel? Doesn't it make you all tingly
inside knowing that Kerry and the Dem-
ocrats want to repeal the tax cuts that
the rich (i.e. you) got so that the money
can be redistributed to people they
think are more deserving? Doesn't it?
Did you know that the Democrats
were once again trying to interfere
with the election process in Florida?
This time they went to court to try
to keep Ralph Nader off the Flor-
ida Presidential ballots. Their stated
reasoning: Nader wasn't part of a
"national" party and should be pre-
vented from appearing on the ballot.
Isn't it interesting that of the six
non "national party" candidates on
Florida's ballot, Nader was the only one
that they tried to block? Could that
be because the Democrats still blame
him for the 2000 election? Fortunately,
this latest attempt to interfere with
the election process was halted by the
Florida Supreme court. This is the same
Supreme Court who in 2000 threw the
Florida Constitution in the trash and
made things up as they went along in
an effort to get Gore elected. Even they
realized how specious the Democrats'
argument was. The vote was 6-1 against
the Democrats.
For those that may be feeling that
the Democrats cause is hopeless, fear
not, for you have unreported allies.
You can take comfort in knowing
that the Democratic Socialists of Amer-
ica and The Communist Party USA have
urged their members to support John
Kerry. While Kerry was not the first
choice for either organization (by their
admission), he's not George Bush.
And like the media, the Socialists
and Communists would rather have
anybody besides Bush as President.
Even if it's John Kerry.

Dear Editor,
It seems to me that many "extrem-
ists" are in disagreement with our
foreign policy rather than our values
or democracy. For years, our culture
has been admired by many across the
world. Many leaders use ideology as a
means of inspiring passion amongst
the people, when the real concern is
more concrete. Our true solution comes
through a very hard analysis of our
positions on a variety of global issues.
As a society, our role as citizens
should be to embrace our own collec-
tive autonomy and hold democratically
elected representatives to the Lockean
principles for which our nation was
founded upon. Only then will we be
able to shed the elements of legisla-
tive paternalism that imparts many
with a sense of disenfranchisement or
dependency.
Mandrill Taylor
ECU Student
Dear Editor,
What is the deal with the connec-
tion game? You have all played it or
have been at least sucked in by it. I
was talking to someone the other day.
When I told her that I was getting a
degree from ECU she said, "oh, my
boyfriend is from Chocowinity (well
now we have something in common
then don't we). It's as if we are long lost
siblings. The only thing 1 know about
Chocowinity is that there is a sign for
It somewhere down the street from the
newest Food Lion shopping center to
grace us.
People play the connections game
most of the time when they first meet
someone. Apparently the average
person is so bad at conversation that
they can't talk about anything but
the most superficial subjects. 1 find 1
have them the most when I meet my
grandparent's friends after church.
One guy to another "Oh you go to
ECU, my nephew went to Western Car-
olina, it was very pretty in the winter
If this is the full breadth of what people
have to say to each other then maybe
we don't need all of these cell phone
plans and packages. Of course nobody
has a cell phone to have Idle conversa-
tions anyway right. They have them
because they might get broken down
out in the middle of nowhere all alone.
That happened to me once when I was
moving some of my furniture in a big
U-Hall by way of Highway 42 - I was
about five miles outside of nowhere
when my tire blew. I pulled out the
cell phone to call the company. Funny
thing was I didn't get a signal on 42.
Thanks Cingular.
Folks, if you want to talk to some-
one, ask how they are doing and actu-
ally be Interested in the answer. Even
the shallowest person can read through
shallow dialogue. I have gotten to know
a lot of warm and worthwhile people
by having conversations that actually
matter.

ECU Student
Dear Editor,
Why does it seem that the major-
ity of people these days are in such a
hurry? I understand that, just as I do,
we all have long lists of things that
have to be done before the end of the
day. However, I do not understand why
people tend to believe that their list is
the most important thing going on in
the world. We all need to think every-
thing through and go about things in a
much more calm and laid back manner.
Especially those of us who are students
on campus.
Today I was calmly driving over to a
friends house when a young gentleman,
probably in his mid to late twenties
tried to scoot around me in his car.
Once he realized that I was not about to
let him pass me in the bicycle lane on
First Street, he proceeded to cut in front
of me on the left side as 1 was attempt-
ing to make a left-hand turn. He angrily
expressed his feelings for me, the safe
driver, with a few choice words that I
will not repeat. I gave him two words of
advice: slow down. I assume that he is
a student, and cannot figure out what
was so important that he had to tail my
bumper like a NASCAR driver on this,
a Sunday afternoon. I was listening to
the race on my radio, although I was
not actually driving like I was on the
track in New Hampshire alongside Dale
Jr. and Kurt Busch. I am sure that you
know who you are, so slow down.
Lastly, I tend to go out at the bars
downtown. It amazes me to see patrons
scream and flash their money at the
bartenders. Bartenders actually tend
to make those people wait while they
serve a few others. Why act like you
own the establishment when the bar-
tenders and bouncers know that you are
not the one that signs their paychecks?
A word of advice - that does not get you
anywhere when trying to get a drink.
One thing we all need to think about
and learn is how to stay calm. True, it
is OK to voice your opinion, like I am
doing in this article, but there are more
important things going on in this com-
plicated world than me actually orga-
nizing my desk - which has been on my
list of things to do since early August.

Pirate Rant
As if finding an accessible
space for parking in Bl lots is not
difficult enough, recently I have
noticed that the first two spaces
on the lot across from Christen-
bury, on 10th Street, have been
designated for Emeritus. Why not
put the Emeritus on A lots, where
1 have noticed enough spaces near
Fletcher to accommodate them,
and have them closer to campus?
Why do the dorms allow you
to have a fish as a pet, but you can
only have one? Are four or five
fish really going to make much
of a difference in a room the size
of a fish bowl?
People need to make well
informed decisions before going
to the polls. I am so tired of hear-
ing Kerry's "I was in Vietnam"
speech, I actually get nauseous
now. Sure he was in Vietnam,
but what about after? He didn't
even have the balls to throw his
own medals on the ground. He
is also the second hated person
from that era (Jane Fonda being
the first).
The entertainment industry
is turning into a sham. If you
have a relative in the business
and no talent, you are still given
record deals and TV shows (hello,
Ashlee Simpson). On the other
hand, if you are a singer and
want to act or an actor wanting
to sing, you are given that option,
regardless that you don't have the
other talent (i.e. Lindsay Lohan,
Jessica Simpson).
Why is the only time I can do
my laundry is at 2 a.m.? There
are two washers and dryers on
every other floor of my dorm and
they are always full.
A double quarter-pounder
with cheese is the best cure for a
hangover that is the only way
to go. No Bojangles' for me!
I am a very informed voter,
and the reason I am voting for
Bush is because he does not
waver on his positions. He is
a strong, decisive leader who
has our nation's best Interest
at heart. Kerry is instable and
easily influenced, and he will
not be effective as the leader of
our country.
Do we need so many visitors
and motorcycle spaces in B lots?
Move them somewhere else! I bet
visitors would prefer to be in A lots
and motorcycles are rarely parked
so far from campus, so those ,
spaces could be put to good use
to accommodate a few more cars.
Why were some of the seats
oversold at the football game? My
roommates and 1 bought tickets
for a particular section, and
because of someone's incompe-
tence, we were turned away and
sent to the nosebleed section. This
is not a good way to treat tuition
paying, Pirate flag waving stu-
dents and fans.
I am glad to see that there are
guys out there who appreciate
those of us girls who still have
a shred of decency left when it
tomes to our wardrobe.
My husband was in Iraq,
Afghanistan, the Phillipines,
Korea and Kosovo. He put
himself in danger to save lives
and protect our rights. He
watched as some of his clos-
est friends died for our rights. He
literally bled, sweat and cried for
our country. If you are basing
your decision on being in the
military, then why don't we elect
my husband or any other mili-
tary member for that matter.
Walking around campus
blowing your lung cancer all over
people isn't polite, butt-head.
Is it just me, or Is the base-
ment of the library a scary place?
There never seems to be any body
working down there.
Are people so insecure and
lonely that they have to talkon their
cell phones everywhere they go?
There is a reason that cars
have turn signals - people need
to start using them.
All of this negative campaign-
ing is getting on my nerves. Can
we have a write-in vote for some-
one who is a little more pleasant?
If there is someone holding
a door for you, instead of flip-
ping your hair and continuing
to talk about your lip-gloss,
trying taking the door from them
and then, heaven-forbid, saying
"Thank You

Names in the News
Rick James, died at the age
of 56 on August 6, 2004. Best
known for hit song "Super
Freak James had diabetes and
extreme drug issues. On the day
of his death, he had nine drugs
in his system, including cocaine,
methamphetamine, vallum and
vicodin. Dave Chappelle must
have left those "profile highlights"
out of his dhow.
Anthony Anderson was accused
of sexual assault, again on Sept.
18. Already charged with raping a
Memphis, Tenn. woman, Anderson
did not have a good summer. Or
maybe it was a little too good.
It sounded so outlandish that
we figured it must be true. Now
the cable channel Bravo has
confirmed that next spring
it will premier a reality show
based on the rocky domestic
life of singing couple Bobby
Brown and Whitney Houston.
Bravo executives say the 10
episodes of "Being Bobby Brown"
will follow the onetime New
Edition star and his family over a
period of six weeks as he tries to
resolve his legal entanglements
and revive his recording career.
That should give them plenty to
work with. Brown still faces trial
on misdemeanor battery charges
for allegedly striking Houston in
the face at their home outside
Atlanta. Since they married in
1992, he has been arrested for
sexual battery, drunken driving,
drug possession, failing to pay
child support to a former lover
and several probation violations.
"Bravo is committed to providing
programming that goes deep
into the internal worlds of creative
people said the channel's
president, Lauren Zalaznick.
Just be sure you keep a bail
bondsman on speed dial.
With McDonald's sales flagging
across Europe, the French division
of the fast-food colossus decided
it needed a shot in the arm. So it
hired the Olsen twins, Mary-Kate
and Ashley, as spokeswomen.
We're not making this up, folks.
Apparently, word never made it
over to Paris that Mary-Kate spent
a good portion of her summer in
rehab being treated for an eating
disorder. This is like Slim Fast
appointing Ruben Studdard as
its pitchman.
Busy beavers as always, the twins
won't just be promoting burgers
and pommes frites. They'll be
offering their own personally
endorsed line of purses, coloring
sets and photo albums. A visit to
the McDonald's Gallic Web site
displays a perfectly delightful "sac
en jean Mary-Kate and Ashley
(that's a denim handbag).
We're lovln' it.

In times of turmoil, war, death

"It is a very

Hair debuted on Oct. 29,
1967 at Joseph Papp's New York

later it was brought to the Biltmore
Theatre and ran for 1,750 perfor-

It has been described as the
first and one of the most successful

"This musical celebrates Ameri-

Set in 1968 Greenwich Village

about a tribe of hippies and their

Alcohol, drugs are problem on campus
How is this effecting
students on campus?
MEREDITH STEWART
STAFF WRITER
It's the beginning of a new
school year, and students (espe-
cially freshmen) are adapting
to the college lifestyle. Going
to class, doing your homework,
participating in activities and
being able to relax or go out
with your friends seems simple
enough - right? WRONG. Only
a small percentage of students
can maintain this lifestyle
throughout the semester. If
you are one of those people -
congratulations. While some
students are able to accept this
responsibility, others begin that
way, but often tend to focus on
other aspects as the semester goes
on. Lack of motivation, freedom,
procrastination, and of course
parties keep many students from
reaching their potential. And for
the rest of the students, their goal
in college is to party as much as
possible. Which group do you
fall in?
Aja Campbell, a freshman
at ECU said "for me coming to
ECU meant working hard, but
also meeting new people, and yes
even attending parties
ECU has the reputation of
being a "party school but while
some are here just to drink and
carry on, others have
realistic goals - such as
graduating. Partying seems to
be a big factor when entering
the college scene. Fraternities,
sororities, bars and clubs all
border the campus of ECU, which
doesn't make the decision to stay
in and study any easier.
Just as any college, drugs and
alcohol are at every turn. Alcohol
is the number one leading drug
in America, and is continuing
to grow every year. At random,
50 students were asked, "Have
you consumed alcohol since the
beginning of the semester?"
Thirty-nine students
admitted to consuming alcohol,
and 17 of those students admit-
ted to consuming an excessive
amount on multiple occasions.
This survey proves that college
students are drinking, but that
doesn't necessarily mean that
it's all a bad thing. Maintaining
your grades, morals and goals
are all important, but being
able to party should be some-
thing of choice. While some may
look down upon drinking, it's a
matter of freedom and personal
decision. As you all know under-
age drinking is illegal, and
charges will be filed if you are
caught. But that doesn't seem
to be stopping many underage
teens from attending parties and
getting wasted. Those who have
a beer or two and control their
drinking habits usually tend
to succeed in college, as for the
other, they usually don't make it
back after the first semester.
Going downtown seems to be
very popular, since it's so close to
ECU campus.
"When I go downtown I
like to have a buzz, it makes me
more sociable and I'm able to
have a good time said a junior
at ECU, who wishes to remain
anonymous. Feedback such as
this should really make you think
twice before heading downtown.
Understanding that people just
want to have a good time, it's more
important to be safe and remem-
ber exactly why you are here.
Drugs also seem to be increas-
ing in popularity, as availability is
becoming easier than ever before.
Marijuana, America's number
one used illegal drug is rapidly
spreading across college
campuses everywhere. Pos-
session of marijuana, or
any illegal drug will get you
kicked out of your dorm
room, and can even give you a
criminal record. Obtain-
ing drug paraphernalia is
also a crime and punishment
will be given accordingly.
Again a random survey was taken,
including all races, genders and
ethnic groups to determine an
estimate of how many students are
drug-free and how many
participate in drug related
activities. Out of 50 students 23
Though the Greenville club scene is hot, missing class is not.
admitted to smoking marijuana
since the semester had began, and
nine of those students reported to
using other illegal drugs. Though
this number doesn't appear to be
significant, keep in mind that
only 50 students were asked, just
imagine asking every student on
campus.
"I like to smoke marijuana
when I am at a party to help
me relax and not be nervous,
that way I am able to meet
more people and not be so par-
anoid said a sophomore at
ECU, who also wishes to remain
anonymous. Responses such as
these are the reason why so many
people do not return to college
after their first semester. Being
well aware that students want to
have fun, and "follow the crowd
sometimes it's best to use your
own judgments. Peer pressure
convinces many innocent people
to participate in activities that
go against their morals, goals
and beliefs. Each person must
decide what's right or wrong,
according to his or her personal
standards. Keep in mind that
every decision you make affects
you and your future in some way
or another. Sure it's fun to go
out and party every night, but
keeping a "healthy" balance is
the responsible thing to do, and
could prevent you from going
through a chapter in your life
which you may regret for years
to come.

Deaf Heritage Week kicks off in Greenville
Spreading awareness
to ECU students
JOANNA WALDHOUR
STAFF WRITER
Pat Dunn, a council member
for Deaf Heritage Week, declared
the start of Deaf Heritage Week at
the Colonial Mall in Greenville
on Sunday, Sept. 19. The pre-
sentation by Dunn was followed
by an opening celebration of
entertainment and socialization.
Deaf Heritage Week will
last all week, ending on
Saturday, Sept. 25.
"Deaf Heritage Week is a
good awareness event to help
fellow students and teach-
ers of ECU to learn how to
communicate and feel comfort-
able about their deaf classmates
said Misti Shaub, a deaf student
who attends ECU.
Deaf Heritage Week, an event
that is held every year, is cel-
ebrated by many people who are
deaf and by various people who
are interested in learning more
about the deaf.
"It is celebrated during the last
full week of September. The t i m ing
is significant in that it coincides
with the first World Congress
of the Deaf, which was held in
1951 in Rome, Italy said Liz S.
Johnston, director of Disability
Support Service.
The World Federation of
the Deaf (WFD) was estab-
lished at the first World
Congress of the Deaf. WFD
works hard with determination
to promote the human and social
rights of Deaf people everywhere.
According to WFD, "WFD
is dedicated to achieving equal
opportunities, better educa-
tion for people who are deaf,
strengthening and improving the
access of information to people
who are deaf, improving the
status of the varied sign lan-
guages from different countries
and focusing on the human
rights and equal opportuni-
ties for deaf people in third
world countries
WFD holds a World Congress
every four years. More than 3,000
deaf and hard of hearing attend
the World Congress from all over
the world.
Debates, sharing informa-
tion of education, human rights,
culture, health and discussing
educational opportunities for the
deaf people living in developing
countries are all presented at the
World Congress.
During the week of
Sept. 19 - 25, the organiz-
ers of Deaf Heritage Week in
Greenville hope to spread the
awareness to anyone that is
interested in deaf culture arid the
significant accomplishments of
deaf people, and to explain the
varied and unique languages and
communication methods used by
people who are deaf.
"I hope to learn more
about signing and cochlear
implants during this week's
events. I think it is good for
people who can hear to have
the exposure of Deaf Heritage
Week. The more hearing people
learn about deafness, the more
deaf people and hearing people
will be able to communicate
effectively and work together
said Alison Williams, a hearing
ECU student.
This event will be the third
year that ECU has celebrated
Deaf Heritage Week. Vocational
Rehabilitation, the Wilson
Regional Resource Center and
ECU have collaborated together
in order to bring Deaf Heritage
Week to the people of Greenville
so they can be exposed to deaf
issues and people that are deaf.
On Wednesday, Sept. 22,
from noon to 2 p.m students
can go to Wright Plaza to dis-
cover information about Deaf
culture. Throughout the week, in
conjunction with the World Peace
Week events at ECU,
students will be exposed to
sign language interpreters
and cued speech translators,
which are provided for all the
World Peace Week events.
Finally, on Saturday,
Sept. 25 at 2 p.m there
is a football game between
Eastern North Carolina School
for the Deaf (ENCSD) and South
Carolina School for the Deaf.
Everyone is welcome to enjoy the
"Deaf Apollo" talent show held
after the game.

ECU instructors dig 'Chicks'
Debut film a result of
passion, perseverance
GARY MCCABE
STAFF WRITER
Professors of different fields
of study do different things in
their free time. A geology profes-
sor may travel to Nepal and study
the Himalayan Mountains, while
a history professor may write a
book offering original theories
regarding the Bolshevik Revolu-
tion. But what do you do when
you work in the communication
department? If you're anything
like Lovinder Gill and Geoff
Thompson, you make full-length
feature films like Chicks 101.
Moving to Hollywood is
no longer essential to getting
involved with the film industry.
North Carolina ranks only behind
New York and California in terms
of direct revenues derived from
productions and generated $230
million in 2002. North Carolina
is successful for many reasons.
First of all, it's a right-to-work
state, which means producers
can work freely without union
intervention. North Carolina
can provide the backdrop for
any kind of movie. Filming can
take place on the coastline, in
the mountains, rural areas and
accommodating cities, large or
small. The most appealing fea-
ture of North Carolina, though,
is their thriving community of
filmmakers.
Gill and Thompson are two
of these filmmakers, though each
has reached this point in differ-
ent ways. Gill has a Bachelor of
Fine Arts from the North Caro-
lina School of the Arts, School
of Filmmaking, and also received
his master's in screenwriting
and film studies from Hollins
University. He's been involved
with the film industry in North
Carolina and began teaching
at ECU during the fall of 2002.
Thompson attended the
University of Florida where he
received his bachelor's in jour-
nalism and a master's in mass
communication. He moved to
Wilmington to make movies.
"I was just waiting tables, and
stuff like that, doing the standard
acting thing, getting auditions
said Thompson.
"I started thinking to
myself, 'I'm waiting tables
with a master's degree. What's
wrong with this picture?
Upon seeing a position at
UNC-W filled, which would have
been perfect for him, he began
considering his options. He was
soon hired by ECU and began
teaching during the fall semester
of 2002.
"Gill and I) started here at
the same time. And from the
moment we met, we just started
talking about making movies
Thompson said.
At that point, Gill had already
written a handful of screenplays.
He admits his first two scripts
were pretentious, anti-establish-
ment pieces that were too deep
for his ability at the time.
"Orson Wells, he can redefine
cinema with his first film. I can't.
Most people can't. What you
have to learn from the process is
what you can do said Gill.
In stark contrast with his
first two pieces, his next screen-
play was a very commercial
romantic comedy.
During one of his classes at
graduate school, his classmates
were presenting their first screen-
plays, which were deep, depress-
ing films similar to Gill's first
attempts.
"I was the last to go and
I get up there and say, 'mine
is called Chicks 101' and
everyone looks at me like I'm
nuts. God bless the script. It's done
amazing things for me Gill said.
Chicks 101 is about a man
named Louie King, who has a
knack for picking up women. Louie
begins passing on his knowledge
of women to his hopeless buddy,
Noel. When the advice works,
word spreads and soon Louie is
renting out a classroom teaching
men who have had no luck with
women, everything he knows.
However, when Louie's dating
prowess is challenged, the gaunt-
let is thrown down. To prove
naysayers wrong, Louie claims
he can pick out any woman they
name. Their choice is Maria,
who teaches 'Feminism in the
20th century' down the hall.
Now Louie must alter his entire
approach to women to accom-
plish his goal.
The two began work on the
film early in 2003. Though Gill
had been attempting to make
the film for a while, the synergy
of the pair got the project off
the ground. As Thompson said,
it just really took on a life of
its own
They began assembling a
team and raising money for the
film. Finding financing was a
difficult task early on.
"We found a lawyer in
California who wrote a book on
this subject he put together a
package, a legal offering, and we
networked and were able to find
people interested in Investing in
our film. A lot of it was friends
and family, a lot of it was our
own money and it was hard
getting people - because at the
time before we started shooting
we didn't have anything to sell
anybody Thompson said.
Things really began going

a grant from Kodak for 16,000
feet of 35mm film, the kind
of film most big-budget films
shoot on. After receiving the
grant, Gill said, "Weil I guess
we're shooting on 35mm
However, shooting on better
quality film would mean added
expenses to a project already
having trouble with funding.
The team pushed forward with
preproduction throughout the
spring and held five casting
sessions. Native North Caiolin-
ian and fellow School of Film-
making graduate Keith Harris
nabbed the lead. Kate Leahey and
Brandon Roberts won the roles
of Maria and Noel respectively.
Geoff Thompson took the role of
Roland, the villain.
With a cast in place, pre-
production near completion
and everything in place, it
was time to shoot the film.
When the spring semester
ended at ECU, Gill and Thompson
packed their bags and headed to
Winston-Salem. Nice thing about
working at ECU is that you have
the summers off Thompson said.
Winston-Salem welcomed
the cast and crew with open arms
and were very accommodating
over the 17-day shoot. Winston-
Salem has become a hotbed for
films, as four other features were
being shot at the same time as
Chicks 101.
Gill didn't expect to direct
the film initially but jumped at
the chance. While filming, there
were limitations.
"When you don't have time,
when you don't have money,
when you don't have everything
(you need - it forces you to think
like, 'we've got to figure out this
problem It's almost like it's good
to have limitations Gill said.
Problems would arise but
Gill's crew found ways to deal
with them. They ultimately
shot the movie they wanted to
make. When shooting wrapped
on the film, it moved into a
lengthy post-production which
is still on-going.
The project is currently
nearing completion. An ani-
mation company is currently
finishing the opening cred-
its and some final sound
production is being done. Both Gill
and Thompson are more than sat-
isfied with the near-final product.
"It's great you look at it and
you say, 'I can't believe we did
that Thompson said.
Gill also stated that of the
people who have seen the film,
the response has been very posi-
tive "I love it
As of now, Gill and Thomp-
son have not secured a distribu-
tion deal but both remain opti-
mistic. Both feel that it's a great
film which will appeal to both
men and women. One hindering
aspect of the film is its lack of
star power.
"The joke is, If we had
put Ben Affleck in our movie,
we'd definitely get theatrical
distribution. We'd definitely
make money. But it'd be a
worse performance Gill said.

College is a major stepping-
stone into the real world, and
without a little guidance, taking
that step can be very frustrating.
The ECU Department of Student
Professional Development is put-
ting together a Career Xpo Week
for students to explore, experi-
ence and engage in activities
designed to facilitate success in
the real world.
Starting Sept. 21, work-
shops will be provided to target
key areas in the career process
which students may have
problems with, such as pre-
paring a resume, interview-
ing skills and finding a job.
The Perfect Resume work-
shop will provide insight into
the purpose of having a resume
and ensure correct develop-
ment of a resume that will
land you a coveted interview.
Knowing key resume skills will
assure that your resume and
cover letter stand out and is not
one that gets tossed in the trash
right away.
The Stress-Free Interviewing
workshop will help students get
rid of all the jitters associated
with an interview. Students will
learn different styles and formats
that employers use in interview-
ing and will prepare students for
all the tricky questions they like
to ask. Topics such as greeting
the employer, communicating
personal accomplishments and
overcoming obstacles will be
discussed so that students are
comfortable with every aspect of
an interview.
The Surviving a Job Fair work-
shop will help students learn how
to make the most out of a job fair
and its resources. This workshop
is focused on how to make a
recruiter want to interview you
and will also touch on topics of
how to research companies, pre-
pare probing questions and make
a positive and lasting impression.
For a list of workshop times
and locations refer to the Career
Xpo Week timeline.
The Xpo games, which
take place on Monday, Sept.
27, will provide an opportu-
nity for students to prepare and
practice for the job fair on Sept.
29, in a game-like atmosphere
geared toward having fun and
learning.
"Students will gain valuable
insight about job searching while
participating in these interactive
activities said Catrina Davis,
student professional development
assistant director to the colleges
of education and human ecology.
The Community Service
Information Xpo, held on Tuesday,
Sept. 28, gives students a chance to
investigate different opportu-
nities within non-profit orga-
nizations, internships and
volunteering. Any students inter-
ested in these agencies should
attend this fair.
The Career Xpo Xtreme is the
large job fair that will be held
on Wednesday, Sept. 29. One
hundred twenty-three employ-
ers have registered to attend the
fair and are looking for students
from all majors. Students will
have the opportunity to network
with potential employers and
learn about internships along
with part and full time job oppor-
tunities.
"Attending the career fair
gives students a chance to inter-
act professionally with potential
employers and it provides an
opportunity for students to
research careers in which they
may be interested" Davis said.
Finally, on Sept. 30 and Oct.

with a way to interview with
several different companies
without traveling far. Employers
will have an interview schedule
for those asked to come for an
interview. The convenience of the
interviews is a great way for
students to expand on their

a great opportunity, but for my

sage that's come full circle. In
1968, people came to see it to
understand their children. Now,
being a part of this experience
helps us to understand a past
generation said Kristen Weth-
erington, senior professional
acting major.
The theater and dance
departments have worked count-
less hours to make this musical
both a moving performance
for the audience and dili-
gent reflection about how
the actors themselves can
show what peace, love and har-
mony is all about.
Shearin said people do
not realize how hard theater
students work. A typical day
for one of these students is
about six hours of class and
then another four for rehearsal,
sometimes with no break. He
compares them to the work load
of a student athlete.
"I am constantly grati-
fied and amazed at these stu-
dents. For them to do this is
quite astonishing Shearin said.
When asked about the cast
of Hair, Shearin said, "I love 'em.
They are having a great time.
They are energetic, imaginative
and very committed to the work
He also explained that
each actor and actress has
put a lot of personality and
character into their various roles.

this musical because of its
strong message that was perti-

nent when the show opened.
Ten years ago Hair was out-
dated, but is now once again
compelling with all that is
going on in the world said Rob
Bradford, junior professional
acting major.
This musical will not
only be a learning experi-
ence for the new age but will
also be a recreation of the expe-
riences of so many Americans
that endured the hard times of
Vietnam and the flower power
age of the 1960s.
"I think Hair will reach people
on a personal level. This is a show
where the actors directly involve
the audience and depend on that
ultimate connection between
the two said Clay Nelms,
senior musical theater major.
This show is sure to be
something you don't want to
miss.
"1 hope people will come
and experience a joy-filled
2-3 hours with challenges. The
whole musical is quite innocent
and the points of view are very
good-hearted and good-spirited

from page A6
"I'm not busting on Ben, I'm
just saying that Keith Harris,
our lead actor, is awesome.
Hopefully that'll be enough
Whether the film is released
nationwide, in limited-release or
straight to DVD, Gill and Thomp-
son definitely plan to screen the
film for ECU students around the
end of this semester or near the
beginning of the spring semester.
Thompson also said they plan
to take Chicks 101 on the film
festival circuit.
"Any filmmaker's hope is to
see his work projected on the
big screen Thompson said.
Even if the movie fails to
bring a tremendous success,
both are extremely proud of
their work.
"It's definitely been a labor of
love. It's been a fantastic experi-
ence across the board. With that
being said, you got to balance
that part, I'm artistically ful-
filled. Now whether or not that
puts food on the plate
or not is a whole differ-
ent question Gill said.
He also mentioned that it
has been a tremendous learn-
ing experience, learning
more in the past year and a
half than his entire time in
film school. Gill and Thomp-
son, both under the umbrella
of their production company
The Gillder Frontier, plan many
more collaborations and have
other projects in the works.
When asked what advice
they'd give to anyone interested
in getting involved with the
film industry, their answers were
nearly identical.
"The film industry is not the
type of industry that you stick
your toe into the water to see if
it's the right thing. You either
want to do it or you don't want
to do it. Anyone that does it
partially or half way, it's just not
going to happen Gill said.
Thompson whole-heartedly
agreed.
"Don't give up on your
dream. Don't be afraid of
failure. Don't think that
filmmaking is some-
thing that somebody
else does. If that's what you
want to do, then do it
Thompson said.
Gill pointed to himself as
an example of this passion and
dedication.
"A year and a half ago, I was
a guy with a script and a dream
Gill said.
"Now I'm a guy with a movie

The Pirates came into Sunday
looking to avenge one in-state
loss with another as they took on
the Bulldogs of UNC Asheville.
ECU came away with the win
as they drubbed UNCA in a 3-0
shutout.
Terron Amos scored his sev-
enth goal of the season and team-
mates Rob Cann and Mike Crow-
ley also added one score each.
Sophomore goalkeeper Brian
Pope earned his first shutout of
the year and it's ECU's second
team shutout of the season.
The Pirates out-shot the Bulldogs
11-4 and improve to an even

"I was very happy with how

back to being more disciplined
and do what we need to do to
be successful and I thought we

Women's soccer hopes

ROBERT LEONARD
STAFF WRITER
With a struggling defense,
backup goalkeeper Lindsl Trox-
ler got her first start in net this
season for the women's soccer
team. Her mission would be to
stop Campbell as they attacked
her with an aggressive style of
soccer Friday in Greenville.
In the 15th minute, Troxler
would get some help. After a free
kick, junior Megan McCallion
darted through three Camel
defenders before firing it past the
Campbell keeper. The goal would
give Troxler some cushion, but
meant the attack on her would
be even stronger.
Within nine minutes, the
game was tied. Troxler would also
give up the second Camel goal off
a rebound later in the game.
There was nothing Troxler
could do but make good saves
and hope her team would come
through. Rachel Hils provided
that hope as she scored what
would be the game tying goal in
the 56th minute of play. The goal

came off of a corner kick, which
was set perfectly by Melissa
Penny and led to Hils' header
into the net. The game finished
tied, as the Pirates went to 2-3-1
for the season.
Head Coach Rob Donnen-
wirth felt the team started well
but backed off and allowed Camp-
bell to sneak back in the game.
"We came out pretty well but
basically took our foot off the
gas pedal once we scored and let
them back into the game said
Donnenwirth.
"They Campbell) are much
improved over the years and we
knew they would be a good team.
Our team needs to put together a
good strong 90 minutes, and we
haven't done that yet. We show
what we are capable of in seg-
ments, just not the full time
The weekend was far from
over after Campbell, and it didn't
end on a positive note.
A strong Virginia Common-
wealth team came into Greenville
Sunday in an attempt to blemish
the Pirates' home record.
Troxler would get the start
in net again and saw only seven
shots come her way while the
Pirates fired eight toward the
Rams' keeper.
One of those seven shots
came on a breakaway, as Rams'
forward Jen Parsons broke free
with 25 yards of nothing but
grass and Troxler in her way of
scoring. She blasted a shot just
out of reach, and the Rams took
the early lead.
It would prove to be the game
winner before the Rams added
two more goals. The Pirates
nearly netted goals on several
occasions, but couldn't find the
back of the net in the end and
were shutout, 3-0.
Unlike the game against
Campbell, the Lady pirates didn't
start the game well and Donnen-
wirth felt that hurt his team.
"VCU is a really good team
Donnenwirth said.
"We got outworked in the
beginning of the game, we didn't
start the way we wanted to. I
thought we turned it around and
then gave up two soft goals. The
second goal really hurt, right at
the end of the half. You can't

ECU Volleyball drops
under .500 for season
DAVID WASKIEWICZ
STAFF WRITER
The ECU Volleyball team
had a bad taste in their mouth
last Friday as they headed into
the College of Charleston Invi-
tational in Charleston, SC. They
had just come off a road defeat to
NC State previously in the week,
three games to one. The Lady
Pirates had also come up short
in their last two tournaments
and didn't want to repeat their
pattern last weekend.
The invitational opened up
last Friday with ECU facing
Duke. The Lady Blue Devils came
out strong, defeating ECU in
three straight games, 30-16,30-11
and 30-21. Duke improved their
record to 7-2 with the win, as the
Lady Pirates fell to 5-6 on the year.
In ECU's second game of the
invitational, they faced host Col-
lege of Charleston. Despite lead-
ing the match in blocks with 11,
defense wasn't quite enough to
put away a strong C of C team. The
Lady Cougars were able to out hit
ECU .31790 and go on to sweep
the series 30-26, ii8, 30-20.
With one ganWt in the

NFL Recap: Sloppy Sunday marks week two grimes
Panthers, Colts grab
big wins on the road
ERIC GILMORE
STAFF WRITER
The parody In the NFL shone
through as week two came to a
close. Upsets were abound as the
Bears sacked the Pack in Green
Bay, the Giants delivered Joe
Gibbs his first loss in 12 years
and Michael Vick ran over the
porous St. Louis defense. Unlikely
teams like Detroit, Jacksonville
and Atlanta survived to remain
unbeaten, while heavyweights
New England and Seattle did the
same. Records were also broken.
Jerry Rice did not catch a pass for
the first time since 405 BC, New
England won its 17th straight and
Carolina snapped Kansas City's
13-game home regular season
winning streak.
Colbert fills In for Smith
against KC
Carolina needed players to
step up to replace Stephen Davis
and Steve Smith. Deshaun Foster
and Keary Colbert did just that in
a 28-17 road win against Kansas
City. All Foster did was have a
career day. Foster ran for a career
high 174 yards, including a club
record 71-yard bolt.
Colbert, a rookie wide receiver
out of USC, started his first NFL
game. Colbert finished with
three receptions for 43 yards and
a touchdown.
Kansas City started off the
2003-2004 season with nine
straight wins, but found them-
selves in a hole to start this
season. New defensive coordi-
nator Gunther Cunningham
was supposed to help sure up
the defensive problems, but the
defense is as bad as it was last
year. Kansas City's offense looks
nothing like it did last year as
Trent Green only threw for 187
yards.

Jemigan wins ECU
tourney by one stroke
BRANDI RENFRO
STAFF WRITER
ECU hasn't held a disc golf
tournament since 1997, but due
to the rise in popularity In sports,
ECU decided to host its second
ever disc golf tournament. The
course consisted of 71 holes with
varying degrees of difficulty.
Robert Leonard, president
of ECU'S Disc Golf Club, hosted
the tournament, which was a
two-day event that began Satur-
day, Sept. 18 and ended Sunday,
Sept. 19. The tournament began
at 10 a.m. on Saturday and lasted
until 4 p.m. on Sunday.
Sixty-one people were
involved in the tourney, and
many of those were world-
renowned disc golf champions.
Some of the big names that
participated in the event were
Justin jemigan, the 2004 ama-
teur world champion, and Brian
Schweberger, who is ranked 21st
in the world.
Jernigan won the Pro divi-
sion of the tournament with a
score of 37 under par; he received
around $200 for winning the
tournament. Mike Hofmann
came in second place with a score
of 36 under par, and he received
approximately $115. Schwe-
berger finished in third place
with a score of 35 under par and
received a little less than $100,
but also received $140 extra for
skins play.
Although the weather was
not ideal for disc golf, the players
pressed on and continued play-
ing through the sporadic rain
showers and heightened winds.
"It wasn't that big of a
problem for me, but it was sort of a
problem for others said Jernigan.
Other divisions that com-
peted in the tournament were
the men's and women's inter-
mediate division and the recre-
ational division. PJ Evans took
the men's intermediate, while
Monica Livingston won the
women's, and Josh Ferguson was
victorious in the recreational
division.

scored 21 points in the fourth
quarter to secure the win.
Chris Brown, who replaced
the departed Eddie George, had a

Steve McNair also had a big day
in throwing 273 yards.

Washington was apparently
in a giving mood Sunday after-
noon as they committed an
unheard of seven turnovers
against New York. The Giants
took advantage by giving Head
Coach Tom Coughlin his first
win in New York, 20-14. Cough-
lin has had to deal with some
rumblings from his players that
he is too tough, but answered his
critics handing Joe Gihbs his first
regular season loss since rejoin-
ing the Redskins.
The Redskins lost three fum-
bles and threw another four
interceptions. On one of the
turnovers, Giant linebacker Bar-
rett Green rumbled 16 yards for
a score.
Kurt Warner, who received
heat after a dismal performance
last week, played well, throw-
ing 232 yards. Washington QB

a hamstring pull in the third
quarter and didn't return.

Lovie Smith completed his
No. 1 goal as head coach of the
Chicago Bears. Smith's Bears

touchdown. Thomas Jones ran
152 yards for the Bears.

TE Kellan Winslow suffered a

Carson Palmer's debut as a
starting QB in Cincinnati turned
out to be a good one as the Bengals
won 16-13. Palmer orchestrated a
two-minute drill to perfection
as Shayne Graham knocked
through the winning field
goal with just two seconds
remaining. AJ Feeley started
for the Dolphins and threw
218 yards. It was the first
night game for the Bengals
since 1997 and there was a
sellout crowd on hand at Paul
Brown Stadium for the first time
since Thomas Edison invented
the light bulb.

UNCA forward could smash an
open shot on net. Pope never
allowed this to happen during
the game as he made a few spec-
tacular plays, disrupting UNCA's
offensive flow and not allowing
quality shots on net.
"Brian Pope had his
best game of the year today
Benn said.
"He had outstanding control
of his box, he knew what he
was doing, his communica-
tion was good, he had an all-
around great game today; there's
nothing I would have changed
about his performance today
Amos scored his team-lead-
ing seventh goal on a fast break
during the 11th minute of play.
Amos blasted a shot to the
far post over UNCA keeper Ben
Saylor and put ECU up 1-0.
Crowley scored his first career
goal on a beautiful cross from
Michael Logan. Logan lobbed
the ball in from the far left
side, barely over a Bulldog
defender, and Crowley took one
touch of the ball and hammered
it home to give ECU a 2-0 lead.
However, that wasn't the end
of Crowley's contribution to the
team.
In the closing minutes of the
second half, two UNCA defenders
surrounded Crowley in the far
left corner in Bulldogs territory.
Crowley turned and kicked the
ball off of one defender, giving
the Pirates a corner kick.
The ECU midfielder then
blasted the corner kick to the far
right of the goal where J.W. Gal-
lagher headed the ball down in
a crowd of UNCA defenders. The
left-footed Cann, who normally
The Pirates will take on an unbeaten Duke team this week.
plays back as a defenseman,
took the ball off a low bounce
after Gallagher headed it and
pounded it perfectly into the right
side netting.
The Pirates will travel to
Durham this week to take on a
Duke team that hasn't allowed
a goal in its first seven games
this year. Coach Benn is aware
of the challenge the Blue Devils
presents but figures this
Wednesday is as good of a time
as any for a team to score on
Duke.
"I've had the opportunity to
watch them Duke) twice this
year Benn said.
"They're a good soccer team.
They haven't given up a goal
yet this year and they're 7-0.
But someone is going to score on
them this year; someone is going
to beat them this year, so it might
as well be us
