Bond referendum to improve Greenville, ECU
Residents vote on four
separate projects
KRISTIN DAY
ASSISTANT NEWS EDITOR
The city council passed a
resolution for a bond referendum
so voters can decide if $20.8 mil-
lion should go toward projects to
improve Greenville.
The ECU Board of Trustees
unanimously supported working
with Greenville to facilitate the
referendum. Several ECU repre-
sentatives on the Bond Advocacy
Committee include Chancellor
Steve Mallard, Administrator Don
Leggett and Vice Chancellor Bill
Shelton.
Shelton said they feel a
responsibility to be active with
this issue because ECU is such a
large entity of Greenville.
The first item on the referen-
dum is a proposal for $5.7 million
toward street improvements.
Marvin Davis, Greenville's
city manager, said the project
would include an extension of
Thomas Langston Road, a 10th
Street connector and the recon-
struction of West Third Street.
"The pavement surface is poor,
the street is narrow, it has poor
drainage underneath and it doesn't
have sidewalks said Davis.
Shelton said these projects
would help ease traffic in Greenville
and the Tenth Street connector,
which would connect Tenth
Street to Statonsburg Road, would
provide a direct route between
the university, city and hospital.
Thomas Langston Road would
extend from Memorial Drive to
Evans Street.
Brooke Thompson, junior
communication major, said the
roadways around Greenville need
to improve.
"It's hard to get around in
Greenville said Thompson.
Davis said they cannot limit
road construction to the summer
when traffic is low because of the
project's magnitude. Limiting the
time when people can work on
roads also makes the effort more
Do you support the
bond referendum?
Roadways, storm water drainage systems, west Greenville remodeling and downtown remodeling are the four improvements
in the city of Greenville that the bond referendum will address.

I agree. It makes the
town safer to have more
lighting.
expensive.
The second item on the bond
referendum is $5 million for west
Greenville revitalization. This
area of west Greenville covers
45 blocks that include specific
sections of and around Martin
Luther King Jr. Boulevard.
Davis said the main purpose
of this project is to increase hom-
eownership in west Greenville
to 50 percent. The project would
either rehabilitate or tear down
structures that are worn and
would replace the demolished
structures with new homes.
Some of these houses are
unoccupied, but the city will work
with current residents to relocate
them to better housing. Middle-
income residents who receive
help will eventually have to pay
back the cost of fixing their home.
Low-income inhabitants will
receive a non-refundable grant.
Davis said west Greenville has
a high crime rate and the area
would be safer if the bond is passed
and the neighborhood changes.
The bond referendum also
includes a plan to revive the center
city, which is better known as down-
town. This project will require $5
million and includes streetscape
improvements and leverage
for larger projects. Streetscape
includes sidewalks, lighting,
planters and street furniture.
Davjs said there would be
low-interest loans for bigger
projects to entice businesses
to establish themselves in the
downtown area.
He said the current busi-
nesses, including bars and tattoo
shops will remain in their current
locations and will always have a
place downtown. The city's goal
is to add a variety of businesses
to the area.
"The idea is to add more we
have vacant lots where businesses
can be built and we have empty
stores where new businesses can
come in Davis said.
Davis also hopes for future
residential areas and restaurants.
Nick King, junior business
major, said downtown is in disre-
pair, especially the sidewalks.
"All the sidewalks are skewed
and jagged said King.
The last issue on the ref-
erendum is storm water drain
improvements that will neces-
sitate $5.1 million. Davis said
many current drains are under-
sized or too deteriorated to func-
tion properly.
"This will be to replace infra-
structure in areas that are experienc-
ing drainage problems Davis said.
Davis said they need to be
replaced to ensure the entire line
runs properly. These defective
drains cause backups, which lead
to flooding.
Bill Shelton said the univer-
sity supports the storm drain
improvements. He said ECU has
experienced a lot of flooding
after hurricanes.

Cancer center provides screening
Focus to increase
public awareness
KATIE KOKINDA-BALDWIN
STAFF WRITER
The Leo W. Jenkins Cancer
Center in Greenville is holding
its third annual free breast cancer
screening as part of the American
Cancer Society's 20th annual
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
campaign.
The ACS recommends every-
one between the ages of 20-39
years have a clinical breast exam
at least once every three years.
By the age of 40, a clinical breast
exam and a mammogram should
be performed every year.
Outreach Coordinator Col-
leen Fenlon-Coda has worked
with the past free screening
events.
"Our main focus in all of our
screenings is to educate. Educa-
tion and awareness are the most
important things said Fenlon-
Coda.
As part of the screening, par-
ticipants are taught how to do a
self-exam, receive pamphlets and
information on clinical nutrition,
receive a body check package and
stickers for calendars to remind
about monthly self-exams and
yearly appointments.
The service is available to
everyone because the center
wants to make sure this habit is
started young.
Fenlon-Coda related an
experience of a 17 year old girl
brought in by her single-parent
father because he thought that it
was time his daughter knew how
to do self-exams properly.
"Once you know your body,
you can act quickly should you
notice something abnormal
Fenlon-Coda said.
Breast cancer typically occurs
in women within or after their
late 40s, but college aged women
and men are also at risk.
"Men ignore it because,
number one, they don't know
they have the chance and,
number two, because they don't
want to think that they can be
affected by such a predominantly
female diseas Fenlon-Coda
said.
The ACS has estimated that
approximately 1,450 people will
be diagnosed with breast cancer
this year alone. Early detection is
the key and the free screening is
an excellent opportunity.
"We have made arrangements
for our mammography center to
stay open on Saturday so at least
people can get some kind of con-
firmation as to what is going on
Fenlon-Coda said.
The screening is free and gen-
eral health questions will be asked,
such as when the patient's last

Mary Louise Antieau discusses issues of free speech within ECU to an audience of students.
Free speech a campus concern
Visiting legal experts
present views on issue
CHRIS MUNIER
STAFF WRITER
Two legal experts spoke at
ECU last week in Mendenhall to
discuss the issue of free speech on
college campuses and its preva-
lence at ECU.
Gary Pavela, director of judi-
cial programs at the University
of Maryland and David French,
president of the Foundation
of Individual Rights in Educa-
tion, are heavy advocates of free
speech and think speech policies
at universities are unconstitu-
tional and ineffective. They
said designating free speech to
only specific zones on campus
are wrong.
"The Bill of Rights does quite
nicely as a speech policy by
itself said French.
"We should not have free
speech zones, period
Pavela said speech codes are
codes of language that evoke the
power of punishment. Rather
than punish those who say
offending statements, we should
allow them to speak and defend
their views against others. If their
speech is nonsensical, it will be
self-refuting.
French gave examples of
schools that allowed KKK mem-
bers to speak at their campuses.
He said their inane opinions were
eventually rebutted after they
were allowed to speak their mind

Joyner library, with the help
of various sponsors, is hosting
a literary symposium this Sat-
urday at Mendenhall Student
Center featuring seven nationally
recognized authors of various
works whose writing was inspired
by the eastern North Carolina
region.
Diana Williams, special proj-
ects officer at Joyner Library
said the authors will provide
insight of how the region
and culture in the area has
influenced their work. This will
educate people on not only
the author's experiences and writ-
ing, but it would also give them
an insight and better under-
standing of eastern North
Carolina.
"For people from this area it
gives them more insight of their
own roots said Williams.
"For people not from this
area, they will get a better
understanding of where they
are living
Williams said this is a major
event put on at ECU and all of
the writers are renowned in their
writing.
"This is a rare opportunity
to hear them speak Williams
said.
The event has attracted people
from all over North Carolina
from Asheville to Manteo.
The event will begin with
three female authors, Sue Bridg-
ers, Elizabeth Jones and Carole
Weatherford, whose focus in
their writing has been juvenile
and young adult literature. Their
work is both fiction and non-
fiction.
Bland Simpson, Randall
Kenan, Michael Parker and Allan
Gurganus will also speak.
"It's really a nice opportunity
for ECU students to come face
to face with these writers said
Maurice York, North Carolina
librarian.
"This is the first time in
recent years so many well known
writers have come to ECU
York said he thinks students
will be able to connect with some
of the writers and relate to their
experiences with eastern North
Carolina.

NC audit finds 30
percent of grant money used
RALEIGH, NC (AP) - Bureaucratic
delays and organizational problems
have caused North Carolina's state
and local agencies to spend just 30
percent of money granted for homeland
security over the last five years.
According to the review of the state's
homeland security and bio-terrorism
efforts, only $64.7 million has been
used from $217.4 million In grants
awarded by the federal and state
governments.
Spending has been slowed,
auditors said, by the massive
coordination required to develop
plans for its use. Up to 10 different
local agencies are required to
sign off on some projects. One In
10 agencies surveyed declined
grants because they were more
trouble than they were worth.
The report doesn't mean the state
has millions of dollars lying around
unused, grants are provided as
reimbursement after state and local
governments spend the moneyupfront
State Auditor Ralph Campbell Jr. said
the state Is largely doing a good job
using the grants for their Intended
purposes following the Sept 11 attacks.
Auditors found relatively few errors
and questionable expenses, he said.
Campbell said state officials have
improved security for all citizens. "We
are, in many ways, a much safer state
now then we were three years ago
Campbell said.
The grants are supposed to go for
emergency response efforts, such as
gas masks and suits to help workers
contain viral outbreaks or chemical
spills, mobile units to respond to

Broadcaster says only part of film
critical of Kerry will be shown
BALTIMORE (AP) - Threatened with a
shareholder revolt, Sinclair Broadcast
said it will not broadcast in its entirety
a documentary critical of John Kerry's
anti-war activities, but will instead
incorporate parts of the 42-mlnute
film into a news special.
Parts of the film "Stolen Honor:
Wounds That Never Heal" will be
shown during a program examining
the use of documentaries to influence
elections. The company said media
reports that the entire film would be
shown were inaccurate.
The announcement came hours after
shareholders challenged Sinclair's
plans to air the film, saying the
controversial broadcast may hurt their
investment Critics have also called
for an advertiser boycott.
Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc the
owner of 62 television stations that
reach a quarter of U.S. households,
has been criticized for ordering
the stations to pre-empt regular
programming to air the show.
The Democratic National Committee
filed a complaint with the Federal
Election Commission, arguing that
the broadcast should be considered
an Illegal In-kind contribution to the
Bush campaign.
Two groups offered programs Tuesday
to Sinclair to air in response to its
news special. California philanthropist
Deborah Rappaport and her husband
offered to pay for an hour of air time
for the documentary "Going Upriver a

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - People
interested In an out-of-this-world
post-death experience can boldly go
where no man has gone before with
a space memorial service that blasts
their ashes Into space.
For $995, Space Services Inc. will
place a gram of a person's ashes in
an aluminum capsule, attach It to a
rocket and send it into space.
"It's very compelling for people and
we've helped open a new frontier
said Charlie Chafer, chief executive
of the Houston-based firm.
In each flight, Chafer and his eight-
person team place the ash-filled
capsules in a tube and attach them
inside a rocket scheduled to send a
satellite into space. Once in orbit, the
satellite peels off from the rocket's
"last stage which continues to circle
the earth with the capsules inside.
Space Services was among some

School expulsions linked
to law banning religious signs
PARIS (AP) - Two Muslim girls who
refused to remove their head scarves
In class have been expelled from
their schools Wednesday as officials
began taking action against those
who defy a new French law banning
conspicuous religious symbols from
public schools.
The two girls, ages 12 and 13, were
expelled from a school in the eastern
city of Mulhouse on Tuesday night,
the first to be expelled from French
public schools under the new law.
There are 72 cases of students
who risk expulsion for refusing
to remove conspicuous religious
signs or apparel. Most are Muslim
girls who wear Islamic headscarves,
but some Sikh schoolboys are
disciplined for refusing to remove
turbans. Those expelled have the
right to appeal their cases to the
head of the academy. If they are
under 16, the legal age for leaving
school, the expelled students
must continue their education at a
private school, by correspondence or
anotber means.
The law, passed in March but applied
starting with the opening of school
in September, bans conspicuous
religious signs and apparel including
Jewish skullcaps and large Christian
crosses. Muslim headscarves were
the main reason for the ban.
The law is intended to uphold
France's constitutionally guaranteed
principle of secularism, considered
undermined by a growing number of
Muslim girts wearing head scarves in
public school classrooms.
Family donates diary
from Imprisoned Jewish teen
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) - A
Holocaust-era diary and love letters
written by a Jewish teen for her Dutch
boyfriend while she was imprisoned
in an internment camp in 1943 has
been donated to Dutch archives.
The journal was kept by 18-year-
old Helga Deen during the final
month of her detainment in a Dutch
internment camp In April-July 1943.
That July, she was sent to a Nazi
concentration camp in Poland with
her brother, father and mother. All four
died at the camp.
"She kept the secret diary for
her boyfriend in order to help
him understand what she was
experiencing said Yvonne Weling
of the Tilburg Regional Archive.
Deen recorded some of her day-to-
day experiences for her boyfriend
Kees van den Berg.
"Maybe this diary will be a
disappointment to you because
it doesn't contain facts Deen
wrote to Van den Berg. "But
maybe you'll be glad that you find
me in it: conflict, doubt, desperation,
shyness, emptiness
Van den Berg had written back to
Deen on some of the blank pages of
the diary, concealed within a school
notebook marked "Physics" and
apparently transferred back and forth
between the pair. He kept the diary
after Deen was deported, and saved
it along with a lock of her hair.
It is not known how the two exchanged
the letters or how her diary ultimately
came into Van den Berg's hands.
Parts of the diary will be on display for
one day only on Oct. 30 In Tilburg.

Real life stories of HIV
AIDS experiences
NICK HENNE
NEWS EDITOR
The ECU Wellness
Education and the lota Phi
Theta fraternity presented an
HIVAIDS educational event
last week that informed stu-
dents of the dangers of the
disease and how it is prevalent
within 'heir lives.
Speakers auditioned to
speak at the "Confessions"
event in which they described
life experiences of real people
and how they have dealt
with HIVAIDS. The goal of the
event was to increase the aware-
ness of the students and give
them a whole new outlook on the
subject. They wanted to empha-
size that this disease is present
throughout every campus
and can affect all people
regardless of their age, race,
gender or sexual orientation.
"I hope It makes them
think about some of the risky
behaviors they have prob-
ably participated in and show
them how dangerous unpro-
tected sex is said Matt Smith,
speaker of the event.
Samantha Shepherd, event
speaker, said she wanted to get
the message of just how serious
the issue is to students so they
walk away from the event with a
different outlook on the issue.
"I want people to leave
uncomfortable. I don't want
people to leave on a happy or
excited note. I want people to
leave thinking about what they
heard said Shepherd.
Smith, in a dialogue
written by Hope McPhatter,
graduate assistant in wellness
education, said he thanks God
every day when he wakes up that
he is alive another day.
He said he started college when
he was 18 as a normal college guy.
He said he lived an uncom-
fortable life growing up, coilv,
fused about his own sexuality.
When he arrived in college, he
accepted the fact he was gay
and found himself dating
another man for four years. He
said they were in love, and he
trusted this man.
"On January 14, 2002, my
life changed forever. That was
the day I knew how I was going
to die Smith said.
Smith was at a regular doctor's
appointment for a simple check
up when the doctor suggested he
take an HIV test as a precaution.
His results came back positive.
"How could something like
this happen to me? I've only had
sex with one person in my entire
life Smith said.
"Sure we didn't use a condom
every time, but if he knew he
had HIV, wouldn't he have told
me?"
After hearing this news, he
could only think of how he was
going to die and what he would
tell his boyfriend. He later found
out that his boyfriend knew all
along that he had AIDS. His boy-
friend then left him and he has
not heard from him since.
"The person I loved, that I
thought loved me, knew he had
something that could kill me and
he didn't tell me?"
Smith's life events changed.
He dropped out of school.
"I do havea new outlook on life
though. 1 no longer think about
how I am going to die, I think
about how I am going to live
Smith said.
Shepherd, in a dialogue writ-
ten by Andre McDowell, spoke of
experiences with the secrecy
of her former boyfriend with
whom she had two children.
He moved in with a friend
who he claimed to be only a
roommate. There were many
rumors about her boyfriend that
she refused to believe.
"Maybe I saw and just didn't
want to believe Shepherd said.
When Shepherd later took an
HIV test in February of 1998, she
found she was positive.
Shepherd said she is a 25-
year-old mother of two children
who may not get the chance to
see her children graduate from
school or get married.
"It wasn't his sexual orienta-
tion that gave me this disease. It
was his lifestyle and our unpro-
tected sex Shepherd said.
Other speakers included
John Carlson, who spoke in the
only fictional presentation of
the program as an emotionally
distrJujjl.it angel who .mnK
spoke to the audience of how
people carelessly live their lives
and become infected with HIV
sending them to heaven.
Mark Hayes, another event
speaker, spoke of a story of a
young man whose parents used
drugs and participated in unsafe
sex and all the struggles their
carelessness had on not only
themselves, but other people too.
Students reacted positively to
the event.
"Most events I go to about
this have really dull people in
them. This one had really excit-
ing people said Aaron Ander-
son, freshman nursing major.
Anderson said seeing the
event will impact his outlook
on life.
"There's a lot more stuff I'm
going to be thinking about
Vfatt Griffin, senior indus-
trial distribution major said he
thought the event was informa-
tive and overall very educational.
While Griffin chooses not to
have sex or engage in any other
risky behavior that may give him
the virus, he said he thought
other students would benefit
from the event.
"I think it allows them to
be aware and know about the
facts after seeing this event,
they can no longer be ignorant
concerning HIV and STDs they
can't say they didn't know said
Griffin.

campus, so they should want the
town to look good.
"Students should be interested
in the city improving Davis said.
"When the communities
improve, it's beneficial for stu-
dents
Shelton said that a more
attractive Greenville has an
impact on recruiting college
students. He said as Greenville
grows, ECU grows as well and all
four bonds will help everyone.
No tax Increase will result
from these bonds. Citizens buy
the bonds that will pay for the
projects. Those who buy bonds
will get their money back with
interest. The bonds are insured,
so the only way a buyer would not
get money back is if Greenville
goes out of business.
Davis said as the tax base
grows naturally, Greenville would
be able to pay off any debt. Plus
there will be extra money for the
city from people who invest in
new projects. �
Voters can go to one of many
polling sites in Greenville on
Nov. 2 or take part in early voting.
Only residents of Greenville, �or
people that are registered to vote
in Pitt County, can vote on the
bond referendum. Each bond
has a separate part on the refer-
endum, so residents can vote on
them individually.
General obligation bonds
must be voted on by the people
and are good for seven years. This
way, the projects can be spread
out so there is no risk of a huge
tax increase.

Discussion on sexual, gender diversity held at ECU
Students receive
heightened awareness
ALICIA WILLIAMS
STAFF WRITER
Anne Boone, psychologist
of the ECU Center for Coun-
seling and Student Develop-
ment facilitated a discussion
on bisexuals, gays, lesbians and
transgenders last Tuesday at the
Ledonia Wright Cultural Center.
Boone started off the discus-
sion informing students of major
topics in our culture today such
as same-sex marriage, parenting
and gays in the military. A legis-
lation has been passed allowing
same-sex marriages and same-
sex adoption in some states.
The United States is some-
where in the middle regarding
legislation while other west-
ern nations are more progres-
sive. North Carolina remains
more conservative in this topic.
The only state that has legal-
ized gay marriage in America is
Massachusetts while Vermont
recognizes same-sex relation-
ships.
There are different sup-
port groups for non-hetero-
sexuals. North Carolina has
a support group entitled Par-
ents and Friends of Lesbians
and Gays and most universities
have non-heterosexual groups.
ECU'S campus group is called
B-GLAD, Bisexuals, Gays, Les-
bians and Allies for Diversity.
Boone began by educat-
ing the students on terminol-
ogy. A transgender is a person
who does not fall under typical
gender stereotypes. A trans-
sexual feels like their spirit is a
different gender than their body.
"In Native American terms
this can be referred to as two-
spirited said Boone.
The discussion was opened
up with people's views on gays
in the military.
"On one hand, there's
some people that think that
open homosexuality in the
military might foster dissent
or discomfort Boone said.
"Other people say that
this should not be a problem
One student said it should
not matter if a person is gay and
in the military because that issue
has no affect on their ability to
serve.
Another student said they
are joining the military to serve
their country, just as any other
heterosexual person who joins
the military.
Boone asked what the stu-
dents thought about the 'don't
ask don't tell' policy put in effect
in 1993 by President Clinton.
Under this policy, many gays
were discharged from the mili-
tary for making it known they
were homosexuals.
Same-sex marriage, which
has become a political issue
and considered in the upcom-
ing presidential election, was
the next topic discussed. Sev-
eral states, including North
Carolina, currently have a
ban on same-sex marriage.
Marriage provides any couple
with benefits such as tax breaks
and benefits received when a
spouse dies. These are not offered
to same-sex partners.
"I have other people that
I work "with who have only
been married a year or two
and I've been together with
my partner for seven years
she can't get health insurance
at ECU while other people
who've been married less get
health insurance Boone said.
One student said that because
he was raised in a Christian
church it is against his morals.
He said he does not support it
because he looks at how God
intends us to be.
Another student said we have
to separate church and state. She
said this may not apply to gay
people because some may not
even believe in God.
A student asked why some-
one else's sexual orientation
would bother a person.
Boone said that this may be
because people fear things that
are different.
Another student interjected
and said that when you are raised
around something you begin to
be comfortable with it. As the
society changes, its people will
change.
"Society has shaped so many
of our opinions about things
said Lathan Turner, director of the
Ledonia Wright Cultural Center.
Amy Elliot, sophomore edu-
cation major, said she thought
the session was good and educa-
tional. She said it helps people
get different perspectives on
the subject and the issues that
were brought up needed to be
discussed.
Boone said she wanted to
raise awareness of non-hetero-
sexual issues and wanted to
encourage a dialogue among
students because there are a lot
of these issues our society is deal-
ing with.
"This Issue is present
anywhere someone goes in
schools, workplace and the
voting booth Boone said.
"As society grows and evolves
we're a part of that and we're
changing too

has given more than 1,200 books
to the North Carolina collection
in Joyner Library. All of these
books have a North Carolina set-
ting, and some of them are very
rare York said.
Ellen Arnold, assistant
professor who teaches multicul-
tural literature said she thinks
it is a wonderful event, and
it 's really exciting to have
so many well known
North Carolina writers here to
inspire students in their own
writing.
Arnold, who has heard Bland
Simpson does much histori-
cal research in his writing and
makes it creative as well to give
it a personal touch.
Arnold teaches Keenen's
work and offers a look inside
African American communities
and histories in eastern North
Carolina that is hard to come by in
literature. He is also a creative
writer as well.

Speech from page A1
creating a scenario in which
free speech ended a problem for
people who were offended.
Mary Louise Antieau, direc-
tor of the center for off-campus
living, said ECU has always had
a free speech zone on campus
and the preachers that come
to campus are free to express
themselves in those designated
areas.
"The human instinct for cen-
sorship is too strong. We ought
to be receptive to different points
of view. If you disagree with us
about affirmative action, say so.
We want to create an environ-
ment where you can be heard
said Pa vela.
In some instances, schools are
going beyond their legal means
by forcing student organizations
to allow anyone to join.
French said student organi-
zations are within their rights
to disallow certain people to
join their clubs, under certain
conditions. It would not seem
logical for College Democrats
to have to allow Republicans
into their organization or for a
white supremacist to have the
right to be part of the NAACP. j).
white supremacist is a viewpoint
completely contradictory to the
NAACP's cause, French said.
Nondiscrimination rules com-
monly lead to this restriction of
freedom of association. Colleges
are enforcing rules that violate
that freedom.
According to French, univer-
sities have speech codes that are
not well known to their student
bodies.
A problem at universities is
the way they define harassment
and discrimination. The defini-
tions are too broad and most of
the time harassment is merely
the act of hurting someone's
feelings. Colleges are to set on
rectifying the anguish of easily
offended people.
"Harassment has nothing to
do with hurt feelings break
away from the culture of vic-
timization, where if someone
is offended, someone must be
punished French said.

AMANDA Q. LINGERFELT Editor In Chief
THURSDAY October 21, 2004
Our View
After receiving a flood of responses concern-
ing an opinion run last week, TEC feels the
need to defend our position as a voice for the
ECU community. Every week in our opinion
page, TEC tries to explore topics that are
relevant to ECU students, as well as provoke
thought about perspectives they may or may
not have previously considered. Last Thurs-
day, one of our opinion columnists decided
to tackle the significance of an image that is
readily prevalent in our surrounding area - the
Confederate Flag.
The writer took the position that the flag does
in fact have racial ties, causing an immedi-
ate backlash from flag supporters as well
as descendants of Confederate veterans.
Since the publication of this article, TEC has
received idle threats from those who disagree
with the article. Some have said they aim to
convince our advertisers to stop supporting
us. Other comments were given by alumni
who plan to pull their funding from the univer-
sity (who, by the way, does not fund TEC, but
does provide us with on-campus residence).
Some have even gone as far to say they will
never forget the names of certain TEC employ-
ees so that they (along with their "children
and grandchildren") can be sure to never hire
those individuals in the professional world.
We would like to use this space to clarify the
publication of that article. The editorial was
in no way intended to be presented as an
unbiased discussion on the many interpre-
tations of the Confederate Rag. The article
appeared on a page labeled "Opinion and
directly reflects the opinion of the writer, not
the opinion of TEC as a whole. While we may
not agree with the opinion in its entirety, we do
recognize it as an issue that many individuals
in our community are concerned with and we
respect the writer's right to express his opin-
ion, as well as the rights of those who choose
to wave the Confederate flag proudly.
As journalists and American citizens, we are
deeply saddened that individuals would go
to such great lengths to censure a freedom
entitled to all of us - the freedom of speech.
TEC encourages members of the ECU com-
munity to exercise your freedom of speech
(whether it be in agreement or dissent from the
afore mentioned article). Letters to the editor
may be sent to editor@theeastcarolinian.
com or to The East Carolinian, Student
Publications Building, Greenville, NC 27858.

SO-HOW'D I DO?
Opinion Columnist
Allow me to clarify my opinions
It seems people
have spoken
PETER KALAJIAN
STAFF WRITER
My intellectual faith in my fellow
ECU academia grows in leaps and
bounds. The resounding response to
this writer's last opinionated blathering
instilled in me a deep and newfound
respect for the power of open dialogue.
Never let it be said that the students of
ECU cannot come together and col-
lectively voice their opinion. It seems,
unfortunately, that some people have
misconstrued the messages and politi-
cal platforms contained in my articles,
so allow me this moment to clarify
for you. 1 hope this can clear up any
misunderstanding.
Marriage is a human right, not a
heterosexual privilege. Gay people are
born gay, and homosexuality is not
a virus which can be caught through
inadvertent contact and it is not a
disease which can somehow be miracu-
lously cured through neo-Christian
indoctrination. They are American
citizens like everyone else and are
entitled to the same rights and protec-
tions under the law. If you happen to
be gay, more power to you. You will not
be struck down by a righteous lightning
bolt from heaven and you will not roast
in the everlasting fires of Hades. That
is sheer fantasy.
Women have the absolute right to
make whatever decisions they see fit
with their reproductive organs. Until
we can legislate responsible sexual
behavior and whatever societal factor
it is that spawns the evil of rape in
this country, Roe v. Wade should be
protected with the entire legal arsenal
of the U.S. Government.
Guns hurt people. This is one fact
which the gun lobbies and the N.R.A.
can never seem to get around. It is their
nature. I don't count the argument
that guns don't kill people, people kill
people, which is too ridiculous on its
face to even be considered. Thousands
of people, many of them children, are
killed or maimed every year in gun-
related accidents. The United States has
the highest gun homicide rate on the
face of the Earth, and like it or not this
is in large part due to the number of
guns in circulation and the relative ease
with which a firearm can be procured
in this country. The federal government
should implement much longer waiting
periods and significantly more in-depth
background checks before authorizing
gun sales. If all you want the gun for
is home protection or hunting, the
second amendment protects that right,
but I am sure you would not mind wait-
ing a few extra weeks for it. Criminals,
gang members and disgruntled postal
workers on a shooting rampage, gener-
ally speaking, are not the most patient
groups of people.
War is ugly. Unless it is the absolute
last option, war should be avoided at
all costs. Have we not yet reached a
level where we no longer need to drop
bombs on each other, or bulldoze
each other's homes, or blow ourselves
up for lack of a better option? I believe
the U.S. Government, for all of its rhet-
oric about a free Iraq and a free Afghan-
istan, should seriously reconsider
its policies toward the Palestinian
problem - and it is a problem. One of
the major motivators of international
terrorism and radical Islamic hatred
toward the U.S. is the American policy
of unflinching, unwavering support
for the state of Israel, even as numerous
human rights violations are commit-
ted against the Palestinian people on
a daily basis. We hold the Israelis to a
different standard than the rest of the
world, especially the Arab world, and
this was one of the major contributing
factors to 911. It's not that we must
not support Israel, but the Palestinian
people should be treated with the same
respect. I understand that many people
in the U.S. support the Israeli cause in
large part because the Israelis look more
Caucasian and it is easier to relate to
them as a people. Also the specter of
suicide bombings in U.S. cities, which
by the way ladies and gentlemen, is
probably the next step in terrorism
on U.S. soil, makes it easier to relate
to the Palestinians as the aggressors.
When you are under occupation by a
foreign power, as the Palestinians are,
aggressive action is a last resort when
all other options have been exhausted.
They aren't allowed to raise an army,
they have no money, so how are they
to defend themselves? There is nothing
more dangerous than a person whose
back is against the wall. By the way,
this is something many people may not
know or may not choose to acknowl-
edge: Far more innocent Palestinians
have been killed during the most recent
ongoing intifada than Israelis. Unfor-
tunately, the U.S. press is much more
keen on showing the horror of a bus
being blown up by a suicide bomber
than the calculated destruction of
thousands of people's homes in refugee
camps (by American built bulldozers).
That is reality.
People who use drugs and are hope-
lessly addicted, but otherwise good
citizens, do not need to be thrown in
a jail cell. They need to be treated for
their disease in a substance abuse facil-
ity. Billions of dollars are being wasted
incarcerating non-violent offenders in
this country for crimes like possession
of marijuana and petty larceny. This is
ridiculous. Crime prevention should be
about curing the motivators of crime,
i.e poverty, drug abuse, homeless-
ness, etc, not simply about temporarily
curing the symptoms.
We should outlaw the death pen-
alty. Violence begets violence. The
unbroken chain of retribution for vio-
lent acts, in the form of somehow more
humane violent acts, must be broken
sometime. I say we break it now.
The Confederate flag is an inher-
ently racist symbol and should be
removed from every statehouse and
government building in this country.
I am sure many of you are mutter-
ing to yourself about what a liberal,
unpatriotic, arrogant, northern, atheist,
elitist fool 1 am. And you might be right.
We all have our faults.
Letters to the Editor
Dear Editor,
Peter Kalajian's editorial, "Con-
federate Flag still an issue?" would be
more appropriately titled: "Confederate
Flag now an issue?" The issue of the
Confederate Flag on display is only
a recent phenomenon in America.
However, young Mr. Kalajian's abil-
ity to draw upon points of historical
reference, probably only as far back as
the beginning of the second Clinton
administration, undoubtedly handi-
caps his ability to appreciate the depth
of American and Southern culture,
the significance the pantheon of
Southern Civil War heroes has had in
supporting Southern morale through
two world wars, a great depression,
innumerable smaller military conflicts,
three presidential assassinations and
untold civil and cultural unrest. These
so-called defeated warriors - Lee, Jack-
son, Davis, and others - have provided
Southerners and Americans with a
moral compass and a map for leader-
ship skills that continues to be studied
today, not only here at home, but also
abroad.
Lastly, Mr. Kalajian incorrectly
presupposes that the Confederacy was
grounded solely in and based only
upon a theory of racial hatred. It is
ridiculous and simply impossible to
ground a legitimate argument by pro-
jecting contemporary moral standards
through a lens ISO years backward In
time and expect to reach accurate con-
clusions regarding the moral character
and motivations of either Confederate
or Federal leaders. It is equally disin-
genuous to draft an argument theft com-
pletely disregards the role that African
Americans voluntarily played on both
sides of the military conflict.
Mr. Kalajian's argument presup-
poses that black Southerners were a
people unified by their opposition to
the Confederacy and uniformly resisted
the Southern war effort, either passively
or actively. This view can only be main-
tained by ignoring a mass of research
material that strongly suggests that
black opinion, like other opinion, was
represented across the spectrum, and
was strongly influenced by sectional,
local and family loyalties which have
largely disappeared in the modern
world, but which were of paramount
importance in the 19th century. Many
blacks, free and slave, in fact, consid-
ered themselves Southerners first and
blacks second, and served the Southern
cause enthusiastically.
It is always a dangerous proposition
to judge another time, culture, people,
and way of life by contemporary stan-
dards. To do so only invites future
generations to do the same to us.
James E. Hickmon
ECU Alumus 1996
Dear Editor,
Mr. Kalajian's education regarding
the war for Southern Independence
appears very limited and clearly tainted
with a Yankee prospective that chooses
to ignore mafiy facts of history.
First I doubt that Mr. Kalajian would
recognize the Stars and Bars if he were
to see it. The flag he is apparently refer-
ring to as the "Stars and Bars" is the
Battle Flag also known as the Southern
Cross or St. Andrew's Cross.
Many symbols have been more
prominent as a part of slavery but
carry no blame. The Stars and Stripes
presided over slavery from the begin-
ning of our Union. When the slave
trade was outlawed by most civilized
nations including the United States, and
the English and French navies attempted
to police the sea-lanes, the United
States refused to allow ships under the
U.S. flag to be searched. As a result
of this action, European slave ships
kept at least one American national
and U.S. flag on board. He was
known as the Captain of the Flag. This
practice continued for more than forty
years.
There were always U.S. flags present
at Klan events even when the Battle flag
wasn't. The most feared Klan symbol-
ism was in the form of a burning cross
but no stigma has attached itself to this
symbol. Why not?

Pirate Rant
Money can't buy happiness.
Mr. Kalajian, next time
become more informed before
you insult brave men. By the way,
what branch of the military did
you serve in?
To all of you who are repub-
licansdemocrats because it
was instilled in you, grow up
and develop your own ideas.
I know this sounds crazy, but
your parents could be total
idiots.
Did anyone notice the white
saliva (or whatever it was) in the
corner of George Bush's mouth
during the final debate?
I was recently a victim of bike
theft and saw someone riding
my brand new bike downtown.
The cops were called, but it was
too late. It's time to crack
down on the bike thefts in
Greenville.
Can someone tell me why all
the sewers along College Hill and
by Brewster spit out that smoke all
day? Why won't someone fix it?
That can't be normal. The smell
makes me want to throw up.
I see the Marching Band
practicing on College Hill and
I think they all work so hard
and sound great. They really put
forward a lot of effort. Good job,
everyone!
Some people criticize others
because of whom they choose to
vote for. I am guilty of it myself.
Think about this: If we all had
the same views, then this country
wouldn't be so great. It would
be people's indifference that I
would fear.
Just in case anyone was
curious: Four more American
soldiers died last week in Iraq.
Thought you'd like to know.
I can't wait until the basket-
ball season starts. It is by far the
most intense ECU sporting event!
The games are so much fun and
I love cheering on the Pirates.
Oh yeah, and I can't wait to see
PURE GOLD!
When I see a student wearing
a crucifix or a cross I think to
myself "it's good to see a fellow
believer but make sure you
know what it means to represent
what you wear, a lot of people can
talk the talk, but few have what
it takes to walk the walk.
I visited my friend at another
university, and driving on
campus, I saw hundreds of people
in the quad doing campus activi-
ties and whatnot. It would be
nice to see more people involved
in some of the many organiza-
tions ECU has to offer. Be proud
to be a Pirate!
Today we salute you, Mr.
Constant Collar Putter Upper.
You, bedecked in a popped collar,
teach us that we no longer have
to live with a cold back of the
neck. Sure, your pink alligator
polo may look feminine to some,
but not to the seventeen other
guys wearing the same thing at
the bar. Where others may see
thoughtless fashion conformity,
you preach a higher gospel. You
preach of a world where it's okay
for a man to go tanning. You ask,
"Why can't we wear make-up,
and use shampoo with lavender
essence?" So crack open an ice-
cold beer, Mr. Abercromble (or is
it Fitch?), because we all know,
when we really need a piece of
gum, you might have one in
your man purse.
Remember, the Electoral
College decides who the next
president will be, not the
popular vote!
To whoever thinks that Bush
is a good 'ol boy obviously doesn't
know anything about him. I
don't know any good 'ol boys
who were born in New Haven
Conn went to Andover Prep,
Harvard and Yale. Also, who
has a father who was a president
and whose Grandfather was a
senator. Just because he "claims"
Texas and can't speak English
correctly doesn't make him a
good 'ol boy.

Army reservist pleads
guilty to prison abuse
Woman kidnapped
while in Iraq
BAGHDAD, Iraq � The high-
est-ranking soldier charged in
the Abu Ghraib scandal pleaded
guilty Wednesday to five charges
of abusing Iraqi detainees at the
prison as a two-day court-martial
opened at a U.S. base in Baghdad.
U.S. Army reservist Staff Sgt.
Ivan "Chip" Frederick, 38, of Buck-
ingham, Va admitted to allega-
tions of conspiracy, dereliction of
duty, maltreatment of detainees,
assault, and committing an
indecent act. He was expected
to be sentenced Thursday.
Under a plea bargain deal,
several other charges against
Frederick were dropped. Accord-
ing to his attorney, Gary Myers.
Frederick, a military policeman
and a corrections officer in civil-
ian life, has agreed to cooperate
fully in future investigations and
will testify in future trials.
Frederick is alleged to have
watched as a group of detainees
were made to masturbate while
other soldiers photographed
them. He also is accused of
jumping on a pile of detainees,
stomping on detainees' hands
and bare feet, and punching one
in the chest.
In addition, Frederick alleg-
edly helped place wires in a
detainee's hands and told him
he would be electrocuted if he
fell off a box.
"I took one and wrapped it
around his finger. Sgt. Davis put
one on his hand. Spc. Harman
one on his toe he said.
Frederick said he thought the
interrogator wanted him to scare
the prisoner to help out with the
interrogation.
The Abu Ghraib prisoner
scandal broke in April with the
worldwide publication of photos
and videos showing American
soldiers abusing and humiliating
naked Iraqi detainees.
Frederick is one of seven
members of the Cresaptown,
Mdbased 372nd Military
Police Company charged in the
scandal. One, Spc. Jeremy C.
Sivits, of Hyndman, Pa is serv-
ing a one-year prison sentence
after pleading guilty in May to
three counts.
Spc. Armin Cruz, 24, a Mili-
tary Intelligence soldier, was
sentenced last month to eight
months of confinement, reduc-
tion in rank to private, and a bad
conduct discharge for his part in
the scandal.
Frederick, who was in charge
of the night shift at Abu Ghraib,
told military judge Army Col.
James Pohl that Military Intel-
ligence and civilian interrogators
told him what conditions to set
for detainees.
That included removing
detainees' clothing, depriving
them of sleep, or taking away
their cigarettes, Frederick said.
He said they wanted detainees
stressed out and wanted them
to talk more.
Frederick said he only
learned afterward that there were
regulations regarding treatment
of the detainees.
The proceeding included
witness testimony and other
evidence but almost all the wit-
nesses are participating by video
teleconference from outside Iraq.
Several of the defense witnesses
are in Washington or Europe.
One of the government's two wit-
nesses also will testify remotely,
from Mannheim, Germany.
The unusual arrangement
ensured better cooperation from
witnesses who were afraid to visit
a war zone after a military appel-
late court refused to move the
proceeding out of Iraq, according
to Myers.

HASSAN
BAGHDAD, Iraq � CARE
International suspended oper-
ations in Iraq on Wednes-
day after gunmen seized the
woman who ran the humanitar-
ian organization's work in the
country. The victim's Iraqi hus-
band appealed to the kidnappers
to free her.
Margaret Hassan, who holds
British, Irish and Iraqi citizen-
ship, was seized early Tuesday
on her way to work in western
Baghdad after gunmen blocked
her route and dragged the driver
and a companion from the car.
Hassan, who is in her early
60s, is among the most widely
known humanitarian officials
in the Middle East and is also the
most high-profile figure to fall
victim to a wave of kidnappings
sweeping Iraq in recent months.
The Arab television station
Al-Jazeera broadcast a brief video
showing 1 lassan, wearing a white
blouse and appearing tense, sit-
ting in a room with bare white
walls. An editor at the station,
based in Qatar, said the tape
contained no audio. It did not
identify what group was holding
her and contained no demand
for her release.
Iraqi officials refused
comment on the case, citing
the need for security to protect
her life.
"I would like to tell the kid-
nappers that we are in the holy
month of Ramadan and my
wife has been helping Iraq since
thirty years and loved this coun-
try her husband Tahseen Ali
Hassan said Wednesday on Al-
Arablya television.
"In the name of humanity,
Islam and brotherhood, I appeal
to the kidnapers to free her
because she has nothing to do
with politics
Hassan's husband told
Al-Jazeera that his wife had
not received threats and the
kidnappers had not contacted
anyone with any demands as of
Tuesday night.
Hassan has lived in Baghdad
for 30 years, helping supply
medicines and other humani-
tarian aid while speaking out
about Iraqis' suffering under
international sanctions during
the 1990s.
Gay Episcopal bishop accepts controversies
NEW YORK � The gay
bishop at the center of the
debate over homosexuality that
has driven the global Angli-
can Communion said he was
sorry conservatives were upset
by his consecration, but said
he had no regrets about his
ground breaking elevation to
church leadership.
Episcopal Bishop V. Gene
Robinson, in an Associated Press
interview on Wednesday, also
said he was committed to work-
ing with those who opposed his
confirmation to see how they
could remain together in the
fellowship of churches, despite
differences over what the Bible
says about gays.
"We regret how difficult this
made things in many parts of the
Communion said Robinson,
who leads the Diocese of New
Hampshire. "Certainly, I do
not regret that my becoming a
bishop has been a real blessing
to me and my diocese
Robinson's comments came
two days after an Anglican
commission studying how the
Communion can stay unified
said the U.S. church should
apologize for electing him with-
out consulting more with other
Anglicans. The report, released
Monday in London, did not com-
ment on Robinson personally or
ask him to resign and it recom-
mended no punishment for the
Episcopal Church as conserva-
tives had demanded.
The Episcopal Church, with
2.4 million members, is the
U.S. province of the 77-million-
member Anglican Communion,
which traces its roots to the
Church of England.
Robinson is the first openly
gay priest to be elected bishop in
the Anglican Communion.
The commission did ask
Anglican provinces for a mora-
torium on electing gay bishops
and developing liturgies for
same-sex blessing ceremonies.
Robinson said he anticipated
that gay clergy would agree to
the moratorium on becoming
candidates for bishop, but he
did not think they should be
required to do so.
"If they feel called, I think
they should put their names
forward he said.
Anglican leaders worldwide
will spend months studying
the report's recommended
solutions for ending the
rift. Robinson said he
did not expect any reconcili-
ation in his lifetime of those
with opposing biblical views on
homosexuality. Still, he hoped
conservatives would be open to
exploring how to remain in the
same church.
Some U.S. conservatives
have already broken from the
Episcopal Church, while others
have formed a network of
dioceses and congregations
that they call a "church
within a church in opposition
to Episcopal leaders.
"If the conservatives choose
not to remain at the table, I don't
know what can be done about
that Robinson said. "What I'm
saying is that I'm going to be at
the table. The American church
is going to be at the table

Cold and flu season is rapidly
approaching. Students are
reminded that one of the easiest
ways to stay healthy is to drink
plenty of water and wash their
hands often. By "flushing our
systems" and not allowing germs
to get into our bodies, our immune
systems can stay strong.
Vitamin C and avoiding extreme
temperature changes will also
help your immune system to stay
its strongest.
Taking a warm shower or bath
rather than hot, will improve skin
tone. Hot water dilates blood
vessels, which leads to redness.
The cooler the shower or bath,
the smaller your pores tend to
appear.

Occupational gender role reversals
From mostly
female to male
Elementary school teaching
DANIELLE WIGGINS
STAFF WRITER
Elementary school teaching
has been and continues to be a
predominately female occupa-
tion. Before World War II, females
were only limited to jobs such
as nursing, secretarial work and
teaching. Only after this period
did men start to slowly ease their
way into a career of teaching at
elementary levels. Now, men are
easily accepted to do secretarial
work and nursing, as women are
to do construction work and engi-
neering occupations. Since the
1970s, equality has been a fight
and in this decade there has been
a change, especially in certain
occupations. Gender isn't as
big of an issue as it was then,
but there are still problems
concerning gender discrimina-
tion accepting the fact that men
are able to do women's jobs as
well as women can prosper in
men's work. Even though men
are highly needed in elemen-
tary education, they are simply
turned away by what it does
not offer.
Males that teach at elemen-
tary levels may or may not have
children of their own, but as far
as discipline and creativity is concerned,
males bring something new into this field
of education. Not to specifically say male
teachers are into a softer side that you
usually would not see. Male teachers have
to work harder to gain parent's trust and respect
because of this issue. Teachers usually have to hold
conferences with parents to gain trust and inform
parents of the child's behavior and progress. Kids
living in single parent homes with their mothers are
more positive to respond to male teachers because
it is usually unexpected, considering the fact that
some kids may not have a standing male-father
figure in their lives. The job requires nurturing
and special care for young children, which is not
a popular thing males look forward to in teaching
the short attention span of 20 to 30 young boys and
girls. They are also turned off by what the job cri-
teria concerns, such as decorating bulletin boards,
helping kids build their imagination, reading and
telling stories while being a part-time baby-sitter
and making it an exciting place away from home.
Not to mention the fact that elementary educa-
tion is not a high paying occupation unless they
are appointed to principal or superintendent. Men
also have to deal with funny remarks from people
who look down on them because of their interest
in teaching young children. They are surrounded
by female teachers that sometimes make them feel
like the odd ball or completely isolated from the
rest of the staff.

Women
firefighters
Despite stereotypes,
they've always been there
JASON A. FREEMAN
STAFF WRITER
For decades women have been
fighting and sometimes dying
alongside men in communities
throughout the country. Since the
days of bucket brigades, women
have fought fires and at times shown
valor worthy of commendation.
Women in the Fire Service, Inc
an organization formed in 1982 to
increase the number and influence of
women in the fire service, distributes informa-
tion about women in the fire service and provides
counsel for firefighters, both male and female.
According to their Web site at wfsi.org, today
there are more than 6,000 female full-time fire-
fighters and more than 40,000 female volunteer
firefighters. Molly Williams, an African-American
slave, holds the title of "the first known woman
firefighter She was a member of "Oceanus Engine
Company 11 in New York City After Molly
Williams, the next known woman firefighter was
Marina Betts, "a tall and impressive French-Indian
woman from the Shinbone Alley district of Pitts-
burgh worked on the bucket brigades at fires
According to wfsi.org, Betts recruited volunteers
among "male spectators" and possessed an "impos-
ing presence and sharp tong.
The avenues for professional women fire-
fighters were opened with Title VII of the Civil
Rights Act of 1964. According to the act, "It
shall be an unlawful employment practice
for an employer to fail or refuse to hire or
to discharge any individual, or otherwise
to discriminate against any individual
with respect to his compensation, terms,
conditions, or privileges of employ-
ment, because of such individual's race,
color, religion, sex, or national origin;
or to limit, segregate, or classify his
employees in any way which would
deprive or tend to deprive any indi-
vidual of employment opportuni-
ties or otherwise adversely affect
his status as an employee, because
of such individual's race, color, reli-
gion, sex, or national origin
Judith Livers, a dental assistant,
was hired by the Arlington Virginia
Fire Department in 1974, becoming
the nation's first full-time female
firefighter. She has since retired as
Battalion Chief Judith Brewer.
The effects of the efforts
of early female firefighters can
be seen in the Greenville Fire
Department, where four women
currently serve. The early strug-
gles of some seem to have made
the path smoother for others.

Fun, food and rides all at your back door
North Carolina State
Fair is underway
in Raleigh
AMANDA WINAR
STAFF WRITER
Have anything to do tonight?
Want to go to the fair for free?
Only today, Thursday, Oct. 21,
can you bypass the $6 admission
fee by bringing four Food Lion
brand cans of food to any main
gate. You will save a few dollars
and all proceeds go to the Food
Bank of Central and Eastern
North Carolina.
To be really prepared for the
fair this year however, make
sure to bring an appetite and
some walking shoes with you as
well. This year the fair was able
to expand its concessions and
ride area since the Sam G. Rand
Grandstand, an adjoining base-
ball field, was recently paved over.
With more space means not
only more rides and less people
bumping into you, but it also
means lots and lots of food. At the
North Carolina State Fair, there is
something for everyone. The tra-
ditional turkey legs, cotton candy,
roasted corn, candy apples and an
abundant variety of fried dough are
among the top choices. Recently
vendors have become more cre-
ative and have literally begun
frying everything from candy bars
and Twinkies to bananas and the
new item this year, pickles. Yup.
You can buy a fried pickle with
dipping sauce or a fried banana
dunked in banana pudding.
If you don't fancy all the
fried foods, greasy sausages and
many other cardiac-arrest side

this gadget 'wave' of future
To chart Seahawk Heath Evans' progress as he works out,
trainer Joel Jamieson fits him with OmegaWave's electrodes.
(KRT) � Ever get the
feeling your body isn't quite up
for today's scheduled workout?
I feel that way almost daily
now. But you must also have
those days when you feel more
capable than what your training
regimen calls for. I get that once
in a blue moon.
So when 1 learned of a
high-tech gadget that claims to
give athletes an inside peek into
when the body is primed for
action or in need of rest, I jumped
at the chance.
The device, OmegaWave, tests
your physiological systems in
just a few minutes while you're
resting on your back. No
treadmill tests or blood draws.
Just metal clamps on ankles
and wrists, and a few electrodes
fastened to your chest.
The test measures the
functioning of the central
nervous system, as well as
cardiopulmonary, hormonal
and detoxification systems. It
monitors heart rates and slow
brain waves and produces
personal data in the form of
graphs, charts and advice.
Essentially, the process is like
the diagnostic systems check
mechanics would perform on
your car's engine to make sure
it's running smoothly.
Scientists of the former
Soviet Union developed the
OmegaWave. Some of them
moved to Eugene, Ore and
began a company called Omega-
Wave Technologies.
The device has been on the
market about four years and is
used by universities from Stan-
ford to Duke, college, profes-
sional and international amateur
teams and individual athletes,
like one who used it to prep
for the Olympics. Research-
ers use it, as do companies
developing sports nutrition.
Company president Allen
I luffstutter said three systems are
being used in Washington - two
by athletic clubs. A Seattle-area
doctor is using the system to
do fibromyalgia research. Some
potential users are still waiting
for more independent testing.
The device can cost
as much as $35,000.
The Bellingham Athletic
Club in Washington got one
three years ago and uses it to
screen new members, help
plan and monitor training
programs and complement
programs targeting weight loss,
says Cathy Buckley, club owner.
"We've actually sent members
to the doctor after we found
abnormal heart and stress
readings with thedevice she says.
Joel Jamieson, director of
EndZone Athletics in Kirkland,
Wash has administered the
OmegaWave tests to former Uni-
versity of Washington football
star Reggie Williams, kick boxers,
Seahawks and other elite athletes.
The system lets each assess how
his or her body is responding and
adapting to training.

items, there are still many other
enjoyable things at the fair. Every
night there is live entertain-
ment and a special concert in
the Dorton Arena. If you are a
country music fan, this weekend
is definitely up your ally. Gary
Allan Is playing Saturday, Oct.
23 arjd the big ticket Lonestar,
will be performing Sunday, Oct.
24. Both shows play at 7:30
p.m. in the Dorton Arena for
an extra charge of $5 to $10.
Friday, Oct. 22 - Sunday, Oct.
24 you may also go and see the
fast-action, car-crashing Demo-
lition Derby event that is held
annually in the local stadium.
And if that doesn't get your heart
racing, you better head over to
the rides. The Sling Shot, Tango
Tidal Wave and Super Himilaya
are among the top choices, but
if you like high and fast stom-
ach-jerking rides, a wait to ride
on the Power Surge will surely
be worth it. Like the Tango, it
Is a ride where you are strapped
into a four-man seat, only you
go extra high and spin around
a lot more than other typical
fair rides. Plus, this ride actu-
ally lists more than 30 seconds.
So you've ridden some rides,
eaten some food and walked
around way too much. You
may just want to go home,
but remember there is a lot
more to the fair. The North
Carolina State Fair has some of
the best agricultural shows in the
South. You can go and see cows,
pigs, chickens and many other
animals compete in various
events. There are garden shows
and tractor shows, tractor pulls
and even pie-eating contests. The
fair offers something for everyone
who visits it this year. You have
until Sunday to get there.
The fair opens at 9 a.m. and
your admission ticket Is good
until midnight of that same day
so you'll have plenty of time to
fully experience the North Caro-
lina State Fair. For more informa-
tion, to get directions or to see a
daily schedule visit NCStateFair.

It can be used to shape proto-
col, too, including when the body
needs recovery time.
"An athlete like (Seahawk
fullback) Heath Evans, or any
athlete, is interested in making
sure their body is responding
properly to their training and
that their bodies are going to
be in optimal condition when
they need them to be during the
season Jamieson says.
But can it help us normal
folk? My test wound up with
several pages of graphs and
colorful charts about my
various internal systems:
The stack included an overall
evaluation: Central nervous
system: sufficient resistance to
physical and psychic loads. Gas
exchange and cardiopulmonary
system: early indication of hyper-
function.
Detoxification system:
tendency toward overload.
Hypothalamic-hypophysical-
adrenal systems: Insignificant
hypofunction. It also assessed
my reactions, which was my only
mark that gave me pride.
Jamieson explained it was
just a snapshot of what was
going on that particular day.
Such results, he says, provide a
baseline for future testing and for
developing individualized train-
ing - also based on goals, lifestyle
and training experience. That
individualized method is safer
and brings faster results, he said.
He typically charges $100
for the first consultation, which
includes interpreting the results
and setting up a training plan.
Pricing for follow-up tests varies,
but generally cost about $25.
Is such a device necessary?
Some think so, some not. Is it
something we civilians could
gain from?
Huffstutter says yes. The
OmegaWave measures and inter-
prets adaptation and reaction
to stress, something many of us
don't have a feel for.
And we lack the body-
awareness, time and even-keel
approach that true athletes have.
In fact, the system is being used
in Holland by a researcher who is
studying corporate burnout.

(KRT) � Donna Ihms didn't
want to seem weird, and her
date didn't want to seem cheap.
Neither of them was sure the
restaurant would allow it.
But two entrees just seemed
like too much food.
"So one of us said, 'Why
don't we just split something?
says Ihms, who lives in Dallas.
"It just made sense not to stuff
ourselves or leave so much food
behind. Then it dawned on me
what we were doing
What they were doing was
portion control, a buzzword in
America's battle against obesity.
At home, you can plan how
much to eat, put your food on a
kitchen scale, save leftovers for
the next meal.
But eating out in a super
sized world presents a buffet of
challenges.
"A typical restaurant portion
might be two or three servings
says Jennifer Neily, a dietitian at
the Cooper Clinic. "And that's
before the rolls and the chips and
all the other extras
Those factors can make calo-
rie counting at a restaurant next
to impossible.
Most fast-food chains now
reveal their nutritional content,
either in a pamphlet at the res-
taurant or on Web sites. You may
not want to know what's in that
Super Value Meal, but it's not
hard to find out.
Moreover, they're served in
specific portions, so the totals
are easy to add up.
But head upscale on the food
chain and that's no longer true.
From all-you-can-eat buffets to
endless pasta bowls to restau-
rants that give you lots of food
for your money, there's no telling
how much fat, cholesterol and
calories you're piling up.
"When we were younger and
got to go out for dinner, it was a
real special occasion says Lori
Goodman, a Weight Watchers
group leader in Dallas. "It was a
special treat, so you didn't have
to worry about it so much.
"But with our busy lifestyles
now, it's a necessity to eat out a
lot she says. "So you need to
make better choices
Researchers have documented
that portion sizes have ballooned
at many restaurants as Ameri-
cans' appetites grow along with
their desire to feel that they're
getting their money's worth.
And when presented more
food, says Barbara Rolls, profes-
sor of nutritional science at Penn
State University, we're likely to
eat it.
"As a species, we're very bad
at resisting temptation says
Rolls, whose studies have shown
that larger portions lead to more
consumption.
"Customers like this food,
and we're so concerned about
value that we can't be expected
to leave it on the plate Rolls
says. "But we're in the midst of
an obesity epidemic which is
going to overwhelm our health-
care system and something
needs to be done
Nutrition advocates are press-
ing the restaurant industry to
make nutritional information
more available to customers and
offer more options to eat less.
In the meantime, Rolls says,
"If you eat out a lot, you really
need to have defensive strate-
gies
Goodman's advice includes
not arriving too hungry, pre-

viewing the menu to scout the
best options, asking for healthier
substitutions and getting every
sauce and dressing on the side.
"You'll get a taste and you'll
be amazed what you have left
she says. "It's just part of being
more mindful, and it's abso-
lutely something you have to
practice
But the hardest part may be
downsizing the notion of what
constitutes a serving.
Nutritionists recommend
visualizing a meat portion as the
size of a deck of cards, a starch
portion as the size of your fist.
Neily says you should look at
your plate as having four quar-

one-fourth complex carbohy-
drate such as pasta or potato, and
one-half vegetables.
If a big restaurant portion is
on the way, the simplest solution
is to split it. If you don't have a
dining partner, Goodman says,
have the waiter bring the to-go
box with the meal.
"If you cut your food in half
right away and put half in your
box, you won't miss it she says.
"Out of sight, out of mind. But
if it's still in front of you, you'll
keep picking at it
Weight Watchers tends to
provide catchy phrases to rein-
force good habits, and portion
control is no exception.
If there's too much on your
plate, Goodman says, "we say
you can waste your food, or you
.can waist your food
Ihms says she and her boy-
friend regularly share restaurant
meals, "and it's opened up all
sorts of possibilities.

money, but sometimes it works
out that way she says. "You can
order an appetizer or dessert, or
get something else on the side
And when they're finished,
Ihms says, "there's still almost
always something left over. We'll

said Captain Sue Barrett, the
head of a local fire station.
"We're expected to do the
same job
Barrett started her career in
the Winterville Fire Department
and later joined Greenville Fire
and Rescue, where she worked
her way up the ranks.
"I work real hard when I'm
here, I work real hard when I'm

was asked how she achieved her
rank of captain. When asked
about any difficulties she faced
due to her gender she said, "For

(the men) are part of the reason
I am where I am today
On the flipside, Captain
Shannon Terry, a member of the
Greenville Professional Firefight-
er's Association and Women in
the Fire Service, Inc has had to
deal with discrimination from
the public.
"As a female I get a lot of
k hostility from people who appear
B to have drank a lot of alcohol
said Terry.
Terry went on to reveal that
often members of the public feel
they can get away with saying
things to her because of her
gender.
In regards to the ECU campus,
attitudes toward women firefight-
ers seem to be very positive.
"I think that female fire-
fighters deserve the chance to
proye their courage and bravery.
Anyone who has the ability
and willingness to help others
in time of need is very com-
mendable wrote sophomore
Jessica Collier, on an ECU dis-
cussion board put up to gauge
the opinion of ECU students
about female firefighters. A grad
student named Sarah Downing
expressed a similar sentiment.
"Anybody can do anything
these days. I know there are
some women who would make
excellent firefighters Downing
wrote.
No matter what happens in
the future, women firefighters
have already made their mark
on history with the many lives
they and their male counterparts
have saved.
To all the firefighters out
there, thank you.

Teaching
from page A7
feel isolated most of the time
said Glen Joyner, principal of
Belvoir Elementary School and
former (male) middle school
teacher.
"Females are known to be
more understanding as far as
changes within young girls and
even little boys said Dani-
elle Brown, Eastern Elementary
School secretary.
Most teachers have kids of
their own, which make them a
little more aware of children's
needs, especially in a society
where children live in single
parent homes where most of
whom are mothers. Motherly
instinct is always a plus in teach-
ing primary school children.
"Typical elementary school
teachers are Caucasian, middle
class females, although there has
been a slight increase in male
elementary school teachers these
days said Scott Thompson,
professor and coordinator of
elementary teaching.
Males are looked down
upon because it is not a typical
men's job. Male teachers appar-
ently don't become teachers
because of money. They are and
have to be highly interested in
teaching. They are pas-
sionate about their occupa-
tion and actually want
to get out there and make a
difference to not exactly raise,
but help guide young children
into the right paths. Most males
do not initially jump into ele-
mentary education. They have
no choice but to go by whatever
openings that are available. Those
that settle become comfortable
teaching that level of education
and end up loving it.
Although females make up
80 percent of elementary school
faculty, males continue to
increase slowly but surely In
elementary education. Upper
grades, like middle and high
school, are well balanced.
Even though males could
be just as affective as female
teachers, most males apparently
don't look into primary school
teaching as a full time career. It
is a good start for those fresh out of
college. Elementary education has
a high demand for male teachers.
In the future, male teachers could
steadily increase in elementary
schools eventually making them
as well balanced as middle and
high school.

A Tale of Two Teams
he Patriots and Panthers are
headed in different directions
this season. one may end up playing in
another super bowl while the other
will be lucky to struggle to a .500
record. What changed and what stayed
the same? let's take a look.
Bruschi has been a key component in the Pats' win streak.
Patriots looking as
strong as ever
TONY ZOPPO
SPORTS EDITOR
The New England Patri-
ots earned their second Vince
Lombardi trophy in three years
after they defeated Carolina last
season 32-29 in Super Bowl XXX-
VIII. They were a team of many
strengths and just one weakness
last year, boasting everything but
a running game.
With the acquisition of Corey
Dillon from the Cincinnati
Bengals over the off-season, the
Patriots no longer have a discern-
able weakness.
Throughout his career, Dillon
was the only cat on the Bengals
who had the ability to play well
consistently and he did just that
for seven long, painful years. He
rushed for more than 1,100 yards
in each of his first six years in the
NFL (all with Cincinnati). The
only season he didn't rush for
at least 1,100 yards was last year
when Rudi Johnson took over at
running back for the disgruntled
Dillon.
Dillon is also a guy who holds
onto the ball. In 112 games,
he has fumbled just 21 times
- that's barely more than once
per season. He can also give you
quality plays catching the ball
out of the backfield as he has
caught 198 passes for 1,510 yards
and five scores in his career.
The 29-year old fits with the
Patriots perfectly and it has
shown thus far.
Through the first five
games of the season, all of
which the Pats have won,
Dillon has carried the ball
107 times for 522 yards
and three'touchdowns.
He has also collected six recep-
tions for 28 yards and fumbled
only once.
However, the thing that
makes New England special, a
team some are starting to call
a possible dynasty is that they
don't have just one guy excel-
ling at doing his job. The Patriots
have an entire team full of players
who can give you quality perfor-
mances week in and week out.
Tom Brady is unquestion-
ably the Patriots' leader in the
huddle. He is perhaps the most
poised quarterback in the league
and definitely among the lead-
ers in football IQ. Brady also
performs his best when under
pressure - a quality that all
great athletes possess. The two-
time MVP has thrown for 1,159
yards on 84-143 passing with
10 touchdowns this season.
Brady's receiving core has
taken a few hits this year as
Deion Branch, Brady's top
target last season, has been out
with a knee ailment since week
three. Troy Brown, the third-
leading receiver last year, has
been bothered by a shoulder
injury for most of the season.
One of the main reasons the
Pats stay ahead of most teams
is their depth. The two Davids
in the core, Givens and Patten,
have stepped up in Branch and
Brown's absence. Givens is lead-
ing the team with 19 receptions
for 336 yards and one score while
Patten has corralled 17 passes for
324 yards and three trips to pay
dirt. Also complementing the
leaders is the speedy Bethel John-
son who is playing through pain,
and tight ends Christian Fauria
and Daniel Graham. Kevin Faulk
is also a valuable receiver out of
the backfield and is often effec-
tive on screens, swing passes and
short routes over the middle.
Patriots' offense, thy name
is versatility.
New England's defense boasts
much of the same solid talent,
consistency and work ethic, but
the team's one potential weak-
ness is also found on that side
see PATRIOTS page B7
Carolina wracked by
injuries in 2004
TONY ZOPPO
SPORTS EDITOR
The Carolina Panthers, who
stunned everyone last year
by making an appearance in
Super Bowl XXXVIII and tear-
ing through the NFC like a hot
knife through butter, are stand-
ing at 1-4 and third in the NFC
South this season. A team that
had so much promise coming
out of a heartbreaking loss to
the Patriots in the title game
last year has looked anemic on
offense and the D-line, pride of
the Panthers a season ago, looks
flat-out weak.
What on Earth happened?
Something that can kill even
the best teams in the NFL-injuries.
Saying that injuries have
hurt Carolina would be a mas-
sive understatement - they have
devastated this team.
After just the first week of
the season, their two biggest
offensive threats went down with
injuries.
Stephen Davis was forced
to go under the knife for knee
surgery after an aggravated liga-
ment problem and explosive
wide receiver Steve Smith is out
indefinitely with a broken leg.
However, even after suffering
those huge losses during the 24-
14 opening night defeat at the
hands of the Green Bay Packers,
the Panthers bounced back the
following week and beat the
offensive-minded Kansas City
Chiefs 28-17.
Explosive backup DeShaun
Foster started in place of Davis
and had a spectacular day with
32 carries for 174 yards and one
score. Keary Colbert, the Uni-
versity of Southern California's
all-time leading wide out, came
in to replace Steve Smith and also
did an outstanding job, catching
three passes for 46 yards and a
touchdown. But Carolina took
yet another big blow that game
as defensive tackle Brentson
Buckner exited with a minor
Delhomme has been in this position often for Carolina.
knee injury.
The Panthers went on to
Atlanta in week three and got
stomped on by Mike Vick and
the Falcons 27-10 and yet another
injury popped up, again on
defense. Linebacker Mark Fields
began to suffer back spasms
after that game and didn't make
the flight to Denver this past
weekend because the team feared
it would aggravate the injury
further.
Then we come to two Sundays
ago against the Broncos. Colbert
lead the receiving core with 115
yards on four catches and a score
and is starting to look like a
polished veteran rather than
a rookie. Quarterback Jake
Delhomme was efficient
putting together a 65 per- j?
cent pass completion
rate along with 173
yards and a
touchdown pass. But a bone-
head penalty by offensive
tackle Matt Willig pushed
Carolina out of field goal range
late in the game. This will
eventually cost the Panthers
a chance at tying the game up
20-20 and perhaps taking it
into overtime.
The loss hurt Carolina
but not as much as losing yet
another key offensive player.
Foster went down in the second
half with an injury to what
looked like his chest. It turned
out to be a broken collarbone
and Foster is out for 6-10
weeks.
Davis came back this last
Sunday against the Eagles but
carried the ball just 15 times as
the Philadelphia Eagles shelled
the Panthers 30-8.

Leonard, Foster at top
BRANDON HUGHES
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
With the season nearly half-
way through, the race between
the staff is starting to heat up.
The leader board is starting to
take shape with Robert Leonard
and Matthew Foster at the top.
Leonard led the staff with a 9-1
record last week.
Maryland vs. Clemson
Disappointing is the only
word to describe these two teams
this season. The Terps have
been anemic on offense the past
several weeks and the Tigers are
winless since an opening game
overtime victory against Wake
Forest. The Terrapins seem to be
the stronger team but will have
to come out of their shell to take
down Clemson at home. Mary-
land wins 20-13.
BC vs. Notre Dame
The Irish have emerged from
obscurity and are well on their
way to becoming the dynasty
they once were. OK, maybe not,
but Notre Dame wins again
against Boston College by the
score of 26-12.
Michigan vs. Purdue
These two elite squads are
battling for the Big Ten title and
the loser will likely drop out of
the race. Purdue's high-powered
offense was stymied by Wiscon-
sin last week, but look for them to
rebound against the Wolverines.
I'd like the Boilermakers to take
this one in a shootout 34-31.
Texas vs. Texas Tech
This game could be an upset
in the making. The Red Raiders
have lit up the scoreboard for 70
points twice this season, but they
won't get even close to half that
against the Longhorns. Texas
Tech makes it interesting late, but
Texas pulls away for a 30-24 win.
ECU vs. Southern Miss
The Pirates will head down
south to face Conference USA
rival Southern Miss. I believe the
Golden Eagles are vastly overrated
and suspect against the run. If
ECU were hosting USM, this could
be an interesting match-up. But,
the Pirates have struggled mightily
on the road and should fall 33-17.
Chargers vs. Panthers
One year removed from a
Super Bowl appearance, Carolina
is in danger of losing the season
with a few more losses. The
Panthers have been decimated
by injuries while San Diego has
one of the top offenses in the
NFL. The Chargers win 27-13 and
Carolina should start thinking
about next year.
Falcons vs. Chiefs
I thought the Chiefs finally
started clicking, but then they
fall to an over achieving Jackson-
ville team. Falcons quarterback
Michael Vick has been average
this season and maybe even a
little boring. I want to see more
of him breaking ankles against
Kansas City, but I think it's the
Falcons' defense that preserves a
close 23-20 victory.
Jets vs. Patriots
Easily the best NFL game of
the week, these undefeated teams
will compete at New England.
Everyone is talking about the
Patriots' winning streak, but
New York may have the best shot
at taking them down. However,
I think the Pats could be the
second team in NFL history to
go undefeated so I'm taking New
England in a 24-23 win.
Cowboys vs. Packers
These two storied franchises
have fallen on rough times in
2004 and both are on the brink of
a dismal season. But a win could
earn some momentum for a late
push. I'll take Brett Favre on my
team any day against an aging
Vinny Testaverde and no running
game. Head Coach Bill Parcells is
the only reason the Cowboys are
staying afloat and they lose again
to Green Bay 20-16.
Bears vs. Buccaneers
The only reason to watch this
game is to induce a nice long
nap on the couch. The season
is undoubtedly over for both
teams and now the only thing to
compete for is a higher draft pick
next season. Hopefully, Chicago
doesn't waste another one on a
mediocre player because Tampa
Bay will win this one 13-7.

ECU picks up crucial victories
Lady Pirates sweep
C-USA weekend series
ROBERT LEONARD
STAFF WRITER
While students scattered
to various destinations for fall
�break, the ECU women's soccer
team stayed in Greenville and
fought for their hopes of making
the conference tournament.
Before the weekend started, the
Lady Pirates found themselves
on the outside looking in at the
bottom of the standings.
Tulane and Southern Miss
both came into town ahead of
ECU in the standings. With only
one conference win, the Lady
Pirates have struggled all season.
The importance of these two
games was high and both Tulane
and Southern Miss have struggled
as well. This was the Pirates'
golden opportunity to pick up
two wins and four valuable
points in the conference stand-
ings. Mission accomplished.
Tulane came into town Friday
with hopes of defeating ECU.
Friday marked the first time the
Green Wave came to Greenville
and the Lady Pirates were not
friendly hosts.
JuniorsMeghanMcCallionand
Carmen Calpo were the stars of the
game as they led the Pirate offense.
McCallion's goal came in the
41st minute of play on a break-
away. Calpo found McCallion
up field with only one defender
to beat. McCallion worked her
way past the defender and was
one-on-one with the keeper. Her
shot would touch nothing but the
back of the net as the Pirates took
an early 1-0 lead.
McCallion and Calpo
weren't through.
Calpo found herself with
a shot, but it was saved. Calpo
got her own rebound and found
McCallion wide open. She fired
a shot and scored her second
goal of the day from about 12
yards out.
The Pirate defense would
hold strong as goalkeeper Lindsi
Troxler stopped all seven of
Tulane's shots. With the shut-
out, Troxler moved into fourth
all-time on the ECU shut out list
and the team picked up a much
needed win.
The Southern Miss Golden
Eagles came to town Sunday.
Southern Miss has been a team
near the bottom of the standings
all season. The Pirates needed
a win to pick up their first
conference weekend sweep of
the season.
Southern Miss came out early
and scored in the 12th minute
of play to take a 1-0 advantage.
At times like this earlier in the
season, things just seemed to get
worse. The team would turn up
the pressure and would give up
one or two more goals. This time,
it wouldn't be the case.
ECU hung in there for the rest
of the half and came out after the
break and got on the board. Once
again, Calpo would be the quar-
terback for the Pirate attack.
She found McCallion open
downfield. McCallion would get
CALPO
a shot off, but it was blocked.
Senior Krystel Pabey took the
rebound and tied the game up.
Pabey would later throw the
ball in from out of bounds and
found sophomore Rachel Mils
who scored what would be the
game winning goal.
With the two wins, the Pirates
are now on the inside looking in
so to speak. They moved into a tie
for seventh place in conference
standings. One of the teams they
are tied with is Tulane. The win
on Friday now gives the Pirates
the all-important tiebreaker
against the Green Wave.
The Lady Pirates will try to
move up the standings once again
this weekend on the road against
Cincinnati and Louisville.

ECU swimmingdiving teams
crush College of Charleston
Teams off to great
early season starts
TRENT WYNNE
STAFF WRITER
For most teams, the first event
or competition on a new season
is used to gauge where the team
is in their training and to make
the needed adjustments for the
upcoming schedule. However,
some teams don't fall under the
typical opening for a new year,
like the Pirate swim team.
This past Saturday marked
the season opener for the Pirates
as they hosted the College of
Charleston in the Minges Aquatic
Center. Neither team left any
doubt as to what the outcome of
trie meet would be. The women
downed the Lady Cougars 183-
109, while the men took care of
business with a convincing 172-
102 victory.
ECU Head Coach Rick Kobe
was in high spirits after the solid
performances from both teams.
"We were absolutely ecstatic
on how we swam and dove
today said Kobe.
"The College of Charleston is
an up and coming team, but we
knew we could handle that. We
just truly swam extremely fast
Extremely fast included a
varsity record set in the 100-yard
backstroke by Josh Barthlow with
a winning time of 50.68 seconds.
"It's huge to swim that fast
this early Kobe said.
"Just about every person on
this team had incredible early
season times. So it makes us really
excited about the potential for
the rest of the year
On the women's side, fresh-
men EC Moore and Megan
Pulaski paced the team by post-
ing two victories each. Moore

The night of champions: Part I
Long intramural season
comes to an end
BRANDI RENFRO
STAFF WRITER
Competition last Wednes-
day night brought about heart-
aches and triumphs as 12
teams competed in the 2004
Intramural Football Champi-
onships. These 12 teams were
the best in their category and
came to solidify a season of
hard work and dedication.
Game one consisted of the
sororities Alpha XI Delta and
Alpha Phi. Both teams were
excited to be here and to win
a championship.
"We are very proud to be
here and we have worked pretty
hard to get here. We can't wait
to go out there and represent
said Vicky Theodorou, of Alpha
Xi Delta.
The game began with both
teams coming out aggressively.
Alpha Xi Delta came out very
strong defensively, but Alpha
Phi was ready and combated
their aggressiveness with some
of their own.
Unfortunately, the game was
cut short during the first half due
to an injury to a player. This game
will resume sometime next week.
The next game was between
Red Banks and Dem Boys & Dem.
Both teams are undefeated and
this proved to be a very physi-
cal game.
They were both excited about
being here and playing in the
championship game.
"We're excited to be here
and the entire season we have
had the mentality that we need
to treat each opponent like they
are better than us said Nicholas
Bennett of Dem Boys & Dem.
"All of us are hungry and want
to bring back a championship
The game started out physical
and fast paced, with Dem Boys &
Dem scoring the first touchdown
on a 10-yard throw from quarter-
back Daniel Henry.
Red Banks came back with
a touchdown pass of their own
from quarterback Nick Wright.
Their defense forced a turnover
and they scored their second
touchdown of the first half.
At the end of the first half
the score was 14-7 in favor of
Red Banks
Red Banks came into the
second half with a tenacious
defense and caused another turn-
over, but a fired up Dem Boys
team took it right back.
Dem Boys came out strong
offensively, but one of their
players became too rowdy and
was ejected from the game. This
turned the game around and Red
Banks regained possession of the
ball. They scored another touch-
down, taking a 20-7 lead.
Unfortunately the game
was called due to unsportsman
like conduct.
Red Banks and Dem Boys
both played a heart wrenching
and emotional game, but Red
Banks came out victorious.
"They (Dem Boys) underes-
timated our offense, we played
man to man the entire game
because we scouted them and
knew that we could win with
that strategy. We were also very
patient offensively and fortu-
nately it paid off said Wright.
The third game of the night
was between Usual Suspects
and 4-Schizzle. This was also
expected to be both a physical
and emotional game, and it lived
up to each of those expectations.
The game began with 4-
Schizzle coming out strong
defensively and getting an inter-
ception by Eddie Jones. Usual
Suspects countered with an inter-
ception of their own, but they
couldn't connect offensively and
4-Schizzle retained possession.
4-Schizzle went on to score a
touchdown by Travis Cox.
Usual Suspects struggled
during the most of the first half
to get things started offensively
due to 4-Schizzle's hard nose
defense. Reggie Williams of
4-Schizzle intercepted another
pass and by the end of the first

"I think we are going to be a more prepared team because we have
had more time to focus. We have really maximized that time-and
been able to focus and spend more time coming off of the open date.
We didn't have a previous game to grade; we didn't have a previous
game to review so we went straight to Southern Miss as soon as they
got back on Monday morning. It has been very good. Obviously Jeff
and I go back a long way. I worked there for seven years. I have a tre-
mendous amount of respect for Jeff Bower and I have said this over

do respect him. Other than that, lets go play ball.

Pirates riding tide of victory

BRANDON HUGHES
ASSISTANT SPORTS EDITOR
The Pirates should be prepared to take on
Conference USA rival Southern Miss following a
bye week. Head Coach John Thompson earned his
second career win two weeks ago while the Golden
Eagles are coming off a 27-3
hammering at the hands of Ala-
bama. Let's take a look at some
of the advantages the Pirates
could have in this storied rivalry.
1 Southern Miss was
manhandled by
Alabama's defense,
� managing just a
37-yard field goal by placekicker
Darren McCaleb. Golden Eagles' -g
quarterbacks completed just i?
6-of-23 passing attempts for 23 $
yards and that should be the 3
focus of the Pirates' defense on
Saturday. "t
ECU must stop the strength o
of their opposition and that J?
is the running game. If the
Pirates can successfully stop the
run by putting seven and eight
players near the line of scrimmage,
then they can be competitive. Southern Miss hasn't
displayed the ability to consistently throw the ball
down the field so a lot of pressure will fall on the
shoulders of the Pirates' secondary. The defensive
backfield will most likely be left on an island, cov-
ering man-to-man in hopes that their aggressive-
ness will pay off by producing some interceptions.
WILLIAMS
2 Starting quarterback Dustin Almond
was out with an injury against Alabama
and his return is questionable. Damion
� Carter, who completed just S-of-20
passes against the Crimson Tide, will start in his place.
Losing Almond is a big blow to the Golden Eagles and
a huge advantage for the Pirates.
James Pinkney is continuing to grow and mature
under ECU'S complex offensive system, but still needs
time to deliver the ball and the threat of a solid run-
ning game. Freshman standout Chris Johnson will play
a vital role once again this week in order to take some
pressure off Pinkney.
Johnson had a breakout performance against Tulane
with 158 yards rushing on 31 carries and will need
another solid outing against a much better defense.
But the Golden Eagles nave shown weakness at times
defending the run. In USM's weekly press conference,
I lead Coach Jeff Bower said they must find a way to stop
the run and that everyone has run the ball well on his
defense. He also challenged his defensive line to step up.
It should be interesting to see how they respond.
Southern Miss is allowing just
more than 21 points per game includ-
ing a 35-29 overtime win over the
1-5 Houston Cougars. The Golden
Eagles allowed 274 rushing
yards in the season opener
to Nebraska and 262 rush-
ing yards to Alabama. The
only game in which USM
stifled the run was in a 27-20
win over South Florida, allow-
ing just 55 yards on the ground.
The much-maligned
Pirates' defense has taken its
fair share of criticism over
the last several years, but they
can still earn the advantage in
every outing. Southern Miss
is not a big play offense, rely-
ing on a constant and steady
dosage of smash mouth foot-
ball. If ECU can avoid giving
up the big plays on defense,
the offense should have a shot
at the end of the game.
USM is averaging just
4.0 yards per carry on the season,
but that formula has equaled suc-
cess thus far. ECU will need to get some early stops
on first downs to force long third down situations
on defense. Starting running back Anthony Harris
has rushed 347 yards this season but his longest run
is just 25 yards. Little used tailback Larry Moore has
the longest run from scrimmage at 39 yards and the
longest passing play for USM was only 46 yards.
On paper, the Golden Eagles haven't earned
the respect represented in the national
polls. Other than a 32-14 victory over
Tulane, USM has won its other three
games by an average of 5.7 points.
Punter Ryan Dougherty garnered
much of the preseason accolades on
special teams for the Pirates. But
it has been placekicker Cameron
Broadwell that has given the Pirates an advan-
tage this season. Broadwell has connected on
9-of-10 PAT attempts and 6-of-7 field goals
in 2004. And it was his leg that gave ECU its
first win of the season. Broadwell hit the game
winning 30-yarder against Tulane and will be
counted on to boot several more through the
uprights at Southern Miss.

sive system, Good has flour-
ished. He currently ranks first
on the Pirates in receptions. He
has pulled down six receptions
in two different games in the
Pirates' 2004 campaign. He also
is first among active players in
receiving yards at 249. '
Good-had a career-game in
front of the home crowd versus
Wake Forest. The Florida native
hauled in six receptions for 122
yards and a touchdown. It's the
only career touchdown for Good
thus far.
In missing receivers already,
Good has filled in nicely for start-
ers Edwin Rios and Damarcus
Fox. The sophomore will start
his fourth game in a row, which
ranks him fifth on the offense for
consecutive starts.

John Thompson at his weekly

ing heavily on Good and other
receivers to be able to provide
some continuity for quarterback
James Pinkney. Good has seen
the field more than any other
receiver available and is the
best-known commodity for the
sophomore signal caller.
Good is known as a crisp
route runner who can stretch
the field vertically. In being
able to use his speed, Good can
free himself to get open in the
secondary. It won't be easy with
Good matching up against the
speedy John Eubanks. The junior
Southern Miss defensive back has
recorded two interceptions and
has uncanny closing speed.
Good is best utilized when
catching the ball on corner routes
or on crossing routes where he
would have the ability to run
after the catch. The sophomore
is going to have to provide some
fireworks in order for the Pirates
to win.

STAFF WRITER
With a 27-25 victory this past Homecoming
weekend over Tulane, John Thompson and his
ECU Pirates collected their first win on the 2004
campaign and Thompson's first ever home triumph
since he took over at the helm a year ago. � �
The Pirate defense was key in the nail-biter,
coming up with stop after stop en route to vic-
tory. Junior college transfer, Jamar Flournoy, came
up with four tackles in the contest. Flournoy has
become one of the leaders on the defensive side of
the ball with his outstanding performances game in
and game out. Here is what he has to say about the
Pirates' first victory and their upcoming opponent,
Southern Mississippi.
TEC: The defense really stepped up against
Tulane in last weekend's contest. How much confi-
dence does that performance give you guys?
A: It gives us a lot of confidence. Also, we
have confidence in our offense because they
are staying on the field more and giving us
time to rest, which allows us the ability to
correct our mistakes. I think the defense gets
stronger like that because we depend on our
offense to drive the ball down the field and
give us time to rest so that we will be able to
come out tougher in the next series.
TEC: In the Cincinnati game earlier this yearyou
guys played phenomenal defense but the offense
was not able to put enough points up on the board
to get the win. As a defensive unit, how does it feel
to play another tough game against Tulane and the
offensive come through this time, lock down.the
victory and stay on the field for longer periods of
time?
A: It feels great. It gives us a chance to get
our legs back and focus more on correcting
our mistakes.
TEC: What changes have you made coming into
this year and throughout the season, being that.you
are a junior college transfer?

"They've ECU had a few weeks to get ready for us. They're coming

who they've played a lot in recent weeks. He won the starting job �

TEC: What are some differences in playing at the
junior college level versus Conference USA?
A: Skill level is a little above the Junior

moving fast. I realized then I was behind

I studied the quarterback more, reading

Eagles hungry for a win
BRENT WYNNE
STAFF WRITER
The Golden Eagles of Southern Mis-
sissippi will be looking to right the ship
this weekend in Hattiesburg coming off
of an embarrassing 27-3n
defeat at the hands of
the Alabama Crim-
son Tide. The loss
marked the first for
the Eagles, and in
order to avoid a let-
down this week-
end, here's what
USM has to do:
running as smoothly as possible on offense. Expect
Jeff Bower to keep Carter's inexperience in mind as
he will likely use the pass very sparingly. However,
Carter and Bower may be able to surprise ECU
with some shots up field, as Thompson's defensive
scheme going into the game is to put more pressure
on Carter and to load the box to

I can continue to lure the safeties
and the corners in, he can look
! down field for a possible game-
' breaking play.
Run the ball. The
Pirates are giving la I
up an average of g '
238.6 rushing 3
yardsgame to go
along with a swol-
len touchdown tally of IS. While
Southern Miss hasn't been hugely
effective in the ground game, keep
in mind that they have tangled with
some nasty defensive squads. Alabama
is only allowing 13 points per contest
while Nebraska is giving up just 66.8
yards a game on the ground to opponents.
Both of those opponents are superior to the
Pirates as far as the front seven goes, so South-
ern Miss should go to ground early and often
to establish the pace of the game. Back-up QB
Damion Carter will be handing off to tailbacks
Anthony Harris and Sherron Moore, who have
combined for 639 yards and three touchdowns.
With the help of Harris and Moore, the golden
birds torched Tulane for 305 yards and two
touchdowns in the running game. The Pirates'
defense resembles the Green Wave's in a lot
of ways, so expect USM's approach to be the
same heading into Saturday.

solid against the
Vlfff-1' pass. The Southern
� Miss "D" against
the pass has been outstanding up
to this point in the season. They
have collectively forced 10 inter-
ceptions and have put together
some significant returns after
the picks, including one 49-yard
touchdown by linebacker Naton
Stewart. Defensive backs Trevis
Eubanks Coley and John Eubanks anchor
this stingy core and have tallied two
interceptions apiece. Look for a lot of blitzing and
pressure on QB James Pinkney, that may ultimately
force him into some bad decisions and further pad
USM's interception total.
Do the small things well. The
Golden Eagles have been in some
pressure cookers this season and
have had to rely on the legs of place-
kicker Darren McCaleb and punter Luke Johnson
to help put them on top in the close contests.
McCaleb is eight for eight on field goal attempts
this year with his longest kick of 41 yards coming
against South Florida in a 27-20 win on the Bulls'
home turf. Johnson has averaged 41.5 yards on 28
punts this season and USM will continue to rely
on his placement and strength to win the field
position game. Third down conversions have also
been crucial in the Eagles 4-1 mark this season.
They are 31 of 76, which calculates to 41percent,
compared to the Pirates 32percent. The Eagles have
avoided many third and long situations, which
will definitely come in handy Saturday, against a
Pirate defense that is only allowing a 32 percent
conversion rate on third down tries.

Southern Miss Game Breaker
Boley brings Ail-American talent to the table
Michael Boley can finally
step out of the shadow. In
fact, he can now step purely
into the spotlight. Boley had
been overshadowed by super-
star linebacker Rod Davis
for most of this career, but
with Davis selected in the NFL
draft, the defense is led purely
by Boley.
Boley sports quite a resume.
He is the nation's leading
returning tackier. He's been
selected All-Conference for two
years already. He was selected
the Preseason Conference USA
Defensive Player of the Year. He
is a consensus Preseason Ail-
American. The list goes on.
In 2004, he's backing it up.
His 20 and 19 tackle efforts
helped Boley garner the C-USA
Defensive Player of the Week
honors twice. Boley ranks No. 2
in the nation in forced fumbles,
No. 15 in total tackles and No.
24 in solo tackles.
Over the past five seasons,
Southern Miss has allowed the
fewest touchdowns of any team
in the nation. Over that span,
Boley ranks among the top 20 in
sacks. He's just that good.
Boley gave ECU a taste of
what may be to come over the
past two seasons. In 2002, Boley
recorded 12 tackles including
seven unassisted. He backed
that up in 2003 with seven
unassisted again leading to 10
total tackles. Boley also forced
a fumble by then-ECU quarter-
back Paul Troth.
Boley's elder brother, Ken-
neth also plays along side
his younger brother at the
linebacker position. Kenneth
Boley serves as a role model for
Michael. The elder Boley walked
on the team even though he
is enrolled in the National
Guard.
Southern Miss has on
the young defensive coor-
dinators in the nation in
Tyrone Nix. Nix played under
ECU Head Coach John Thomp-
son when Thompson was the
defensive coordinator at South-
ern Miss.
Playing a Homecoming
game in front of the Southern
Miss fans in M.M. Roberts
Stadium could spell trouble for
the Pirates. If the Pirates don't
control Michael Boley, the
trouble will come in the form
of No. 27.

ECU soccer drops two
Pirates suffer tough
loss on road trip
KYLE ROGERSON
STAFF WRITER
The Pirates have managed
to hang on to a .500 winning
percentage through nearly six
weeks of competition. For every
win they have walked off the
pitch with, they have then gone
on to take a tough loss. The fall
break weekend was no different
as the Pirates fell to No. 24 UAB
and Alabama A&M.
ECU played UAB tight until
the 85th minute of play when
Jerson Monterio headed a pass
from a fellow Blazer past Pirate
keeper Brian Pope to break a score-
less tie and lift UAB to victory, 1-0.
The shutout victory marked
the fifth of the season for the
Blazers, who stand at third in
Conference USA behind Mem-
phis and St. Louis.
The Pirates went down to
Normal, Ala. to bring their record
back up to .500 after losing to
UAB in Birmingham only two
days prior to Monday's match.
The Alabama A&M Bulldogs
scored their first goal of the game
no more than five minutes into
the match. Eugene Sepuya, a
senior forward at Alabama A&M
placed the ball in the back of the
net from six yards out. This gave
the Bulldogs an early 1-0 lead.
The Pirates battled back to
score the equalizer fifteen minutes
into the second half. J.W. Gallagher
sprinted into the Pirate offensive
third and found his favorite target,
Terron Amos. Amos finished
the attack easily and the Pirates
looked for the go ahead goal.
The Bulldogs found their next
scoring chance before the ECU
was able to. It was an unfortu-
nate miscue by the Pirate keeper
Brian Pope that lead to Alabama's
winning goal. Pope attempted to
clear the ball out of the box but
the ball deflected off the back of
one of his defenders, David Rowe.
Pope tried to keep the ball out
of the net but he was unable to
snatch it from the net as it slipped
in behind him.
The Pirates are still 2-2 in
C-USA matches, but their over-
all record has slid away from
the winning percentage, which
they held onto for much of the
season.
ECU's next match is against a
C-USA rival, Louisville at Bunting
Field on Sunday.

Panthers
from page B1
Carolina looks like a group of
tamed house cats rather than Pan-
thers five games into the season
but it isn't because of a lack of
intensity or talent. This team is
simply depleted. The full list of
injuries goes something like this:
Deshaun Foster, RB, Col-
larbone, out 6-10 weeks.
Kavika Pittman, DE, Knee, out
for season; Kris Jenkins, DT,
Shoulder, on injured reserve.
Bruce Nelson, OG, Hip, out for
season; Damien Richardson,
S, Neck, on injured reserve;
Shane Buton, DT, Knee, on
injured reserve; Steve Smith,
WR, Leg, out for season.
Williams Hampton, CB, Knee, out
for season; Brentson Buckner, DT,
Knee, day-to-day; Mark Fields, LB,
Back, questionable for San Diego
this Sunday; Rod Smart, RB,
knee, questionable for San Diego.
Four players on injured
reserve, another two done for the
season for sure and Foster hurt for
what may play out to be the rest
of the season spells D-I-S-A-S-T-
E-R for Carolina. Buckner may
come back against the Chargers
but won't be 100 percent. Back
spasms are tricky and relentless
so Fields won't be back for at
least another week. Although
Davis returned and played well
against Philly, he won't be 100
percent until this Sunday or
after. Not to mention that he
takes such a beating week in and
week out that missing Foster for
the next 6-10 weeks will put
an enormous strain on the
heart of Carolina's offense.
On defense, Carolina
simply won't be able to stop the
run like they did last season.
They have given up 100 yards
or more on the ground in three
of their first five games this
season and give up more than
140 yards rushing per game.
The Panthers gave up barely
108 yards rushing per game
last year en route to their Super
Bowl appearance. They're also
ranked 13th in the NFC in take-
aways and 27th in the NFL at -6.
With 10 games remaining,
including two match ups with
New Orleans, the second game of
the season against Atlanta, games
against both Seattleand St. Louis
and no bye week, the Panthers'
playoff hopes are looking dismal
at best. Unless the defensive
line gets healthy fast and Davis
can carry the ball 25-30 times a
game, this team will lose nine
to 10 games and relinquish
their claim to NFC champions.

of the ball. That weakness is the
run defense.
Last season, the Pats gave up
111 yards against Clinton Portis
in a week nine win against the
Denver Broncos. Portis ran the
ball 26 times for 111 yards and a

touchdown. Ricky Williams also
did well against New England in
the first match up between the
Dolphins and Patriots when he
ran for 94 yards in week seven.
That was it. Those were the
best games a team could muster
when they faced New England
last year in regards to running the
ball. The Pats gave up one 100-
yard rushing game in 19 total
contests (including postseason).
However, they had Ted Wash-
ington last year. Washington
was a guy who could clog up the
middle just by standing in front
of an offensive line. The man is
so big he has his own personal
gravitational pull. He brought is
planetary influence to the Oak-
land Raiders in the off-season,
and left a hole in the New Eng-
land defensive line.
So far this season, the Patriots
have given up just one 100-yard
rusher en route to 20 consecu-
tive wins and counting. Edger-
rin James ran the ball 30 times
for 142 yards in a painful loss
to the Pats in week one. Buffalo
Bills' back Travis Henry also had
a solid game against the defend-
ing champs, collecting 98 yards
on 24 carries. The Patriots will
fate quality running backs in
seven of their remaining 11
match-ups. Though they are
undoubtedly strong on defense,
teams who can really push the
run will be able to go to the
ground against New England.
When you get past that small
potential hitch, there's nothing
left to criticize. This team has
one of the most underrated line-
backing cores in the league and a
defensive backfield that features
the always-dangerous Ty Law
and always-much-more-danger-
ous Rodney Harrison. Harrison's
idol is none other than Ronnie
Lott. Lott did severe damage
to his left pinky in a game in
1985. He had the choice of get-
ting season-ending surgery, or
amputating the tip and playing
on. The man told them to cut it
off. If that doesn't number 37 in
Patriots' silver and blue staring
YOU down on a route across
the middle? I didn't think so.
Add in Adam Vinatieri, one
of the many players on this team
with ice water in his veins and
two Super Bowl game-winning
field goals, and no TEAM in the
NFL wants to stare at ANY of
these guys on the opposite side
of the field.

ECU Volleyball swept by C-USA
opponents Memphis, St. Louis
Lady Pirates prepare for
next conference game
DAVID WASKIEWICZ
STAFF WRITER
Getting back on track was
the goal of ECU's Volleyball
team heading into last weekend
as they faced two more confer-
ence opponents, Memphis and
St. Louis. After having their best
ever start in Conference USA,
the Lady Pirates have dropped
their last two conference games
and were trying to rebound
last weekend.
ECU headed to Memphis,
Tenn. for their first match of the
weekend. As the Lady Pirates
soon found out, Memphis was
ready to play jumping out to a
quick lead in game one. The Lady
Pirates could only stay within
four as the Lady Tigers eventu-
ally pulled away winning the set
30-19. Memphis quickly followed
their defeat of the Lady Pirates
with another in game two, this
time winning 30-22. ECU was
ahead at the start of game three
5-3, but quickly lost the lead as
Memphis pulled off a 17-9 run,
completing the sweep with the
final score, 30-22.
The Lady Pirates were out-hit
by Memphis .390 to .126. Junior
Erica Wilson posted a double-
double with 10 kills and 10 digs
for ECU. Freshman Mignon
Dubenion also came away with
10 kills in the loss.
The next day, ECU traveled
to St. Louis, Mo. to face the Lady
Billikens. The Lady Pirates came
out strong in the first game
hanging in to tie the game at 15.
Unfortunately, St. Louis pulled
away with a 10-5 run defeating
ECU 30-20. It was the same story
for ECU the next game as the
Lady Billikens pulled away from
a close 9-8 score to win 30-22.
The Lady Pirates were able to
hang in with St. Louis in game
three trailing only by one point
25-24. The Lady Billikens then
went on a 5-1 run winning, 30-25
and completing the second sweep
against ECU in two days.
ECU will play Tulane in their next C-USA contest at home.
ECU was out-hit .381 to .146
in the loss to St. Louis. Junior
Paige Howell and sophomore
Jaime Bevan combined for 23
kills as junior Johanna Ber-
tini came up with 10 digs in
the match.
The Lady Pirates are now 8-13
overall, 2-4 in conference play.
ECU will return home this week-
end to face Tulane and Southern
Miss in an attempt to end their
four-game losing streak.
Tulane is currently 11-4 (3-2)
and are looking to improve their
record against ECU. Senior Deva
Fowler leads the way with 199 kills
for the Lady Green Wave averag-
ing 3.9 a game. Overall, Tulane
is hitting .248 as a team com-
pared to their opponent's .152.
Southern Miss is 5-12 and will
be trying to win their first confer-
ence game of the year when they
face ECU. Senior Amy Truong
and sophomore Amanda Blunck
have combined for 422 digs this
season. Overall, Southern Miss is
hitting .145 this season.
ECU will have to be able to
close out games in order to come
up with wins this weekend.
Wilson continues to lead the
Lady Pirates in kills with 222
while Bevan isn't far behind with
211. Much of the kills can be
contributed to Heidi Krug's 888
assists. Overall, ECU hits .201 as
a team so far this season.
The Lady Pirates open play
against Tulane this Friday at 7
p.m. at Williams Arena in Minges
Coliseum. Play will then con-
tinue on Saturday as they face
Southern Miss.
