Symposium features renowned authors
Event attracts more
than 100 attendants
A literary symposium
was held last Saturday in
Mendenhall featuring seven
North Carolina authors in
honor of the Roberts family who
donated a number of novels to
the North Carolina history col-
lection in Joyner Library.
Maude York, North Carolina
librarian who was on the plan-
ning committee of the event
said the event attracted 125-150
people including ECU students,
faculty and North Carolina resi-
dents from across the state.
"The event was electrifying
said York.
York said the authors identi-
fied with the audience well, and
people nodded their heads when
recognizing shared experiences
they had with the authors.
Sue Ellen Bridgers is the
author of several realistic fiction
novels that emphasize the hard
times experienced by younger
people as they become adults. She
cited passages of her works and
spoke of young migrant families
living in eastern North Carolina
and the struggles families had
with polio. Five of her seven
novels relate to the eastern North

Carolina region.
Elizabeth Jones, a graduate
of ECU and native of North
Carolina, has written five
novels, four of which have a tie
to North Carolina's history. She
typically writes children's works.
In her novel Night Flyers she
writes about how pigeons, used as
a secret weapon in World War I,
were developed in eastern North
"1 thought this would be a
wonderful basis for a children's
story said Jones.
Other topics relating to
eastern North Carolina Jones
used as a foundation for her
novels include folkloric stories of
ghosts in the Outer Banks,
shipwrecks and pirates once
inhabiting the eastern North
Carolina area.
Carole Weatherford has writ-
ten a variety of literature ranging
from poetry and nonfiction to
children's literature. Themes
of her works include issues of
segregation, and rivers and hur-
ricanes in North Carolina. She
discussed the damage done to
eastern North Carolina during
Hurricane Floyd in her novel
entitled I'rinceville.
Weatherford was the only
author who is not a native of
North Carolina.
Weatherford is currently
working on a novel about the
Carolina parrot, America's only
native parrot which is becoming
more and more forgotten.
Bland Simpson has written
a number of fiction and nonfic-
tion novels and has taken part in
several musical productions. In
addition to discussing his writ-
ing, Simpson put on a musical
performance in which he empha-
sized the luxury of Greenville's
location alongside a river.
Randall Kenan dis-
cussed a work of his entitled
Visitation of Spirits, which takes
place in a fictional town called
Tims Creek in an eastern North
Carolina swampland. He also
read a passage describing a tra-
ditional North Carolina hog-
killing festivity. His work is
known for having a vast rela-
tion between the past and pres-
ent settings with eastern North
Carolina locations.

fiction and nonfiction writings
and recipient of several awards,

Voter registration increases
among young voters
A younger crowd registered to
Campaigns, issues
important to youth
Voter registration for young
voters has increased this year
for the upcoming election and
iriany attribute this to the issues
of today's politics that are impor-
tant to this age group.
The Pitt County Board of
Elections recently established
that 11,160 people from ages 18
to 24 have registered to vote in
Pitt County.
Steve Hines, the director of
the Pitt County Board of Elec-
tions, said this is an increase from
previous years and the growth is
not only within Pitt County.
"We are hearing that this
increase is state-wide, if not
nation-wide, so we are probably
looking at a land mark election
this year said Hines.
Hines said increased voter
registration does not necessarily
influence this year's election.
mean there will be an increased
voter participation.
"We don't want to flood voter
registration and then not have
the follow through to the actual
election Hines said.
Despite his concern about
young voters following through,
he said he attributes this increase
to the campaigns for registration
like MTV's Rock the Vote and a
similar program from VH1, as
well as students campaigning
on the campuses of ECU and Pitt
Community College.
"These campaigns are under-
way to let young voters know that
their votes do count Hines said.
Maurice Simon, ECU political
science professor, said he feels the
increase of voter registration is
due to the increase of interest in
certain issues of this election.
"The war in Iraq is a great
concern for young people and
so is the future of the economy
said Simon.
"Globalization is something
young people are aware of,
including its possibilities and
Simon said terrorism has
recently become an important
issue for young people. Terrorism
is a concern for young people
and it has caused an increase
in political interest as well.
"Since 911, enrollment
of political science classes has
increased at ECU and other uni-
versities Simon said.
Emily Watkins, junior history
major, registered to vote and said
& it was easy to do when she got her
g driver's license renewed. Watkins
�g said she does plan to vote because
i. of the important issues of this
o election.
"I think this election hinges
on a lot as far as the war in Iraq,
as well as domestic issues like
health care, prescription drug
prices, jobs and other issues that
are important to young people
said Watkins.
Chris Johnson, junior politi-
cal science major, said he is
registered to vote and he thinks
the issues of today's politics are
important. He plans to vote in
the election as well.
"I am registered to vote
because I really do think every
vote counts said Johnson.

ECU geography team wins state competition
ECU team wins competition
Team defeats runner up
UNC Charlotte
ECU'S geography team, made
up of several undergraduate and
graduate students, took first place
at the annual state geography
competition against several other
schools in the UNC system.
Robert Best, team captain and
MVP, said he thought it was an
overall beneficial event for ECU
and other participating schools.
He said ECU and UNC Char-
lotte were the two teams that
made it to the final round, which
ECU won.
Scott Wade, geography profes-
sor at ECU who worked with ECU's
geography team, said each school
has its own team which is drafted
by the geography department.
Each team must be composed
of a specified number of graduate
students, undergraduates, males
and females. He said ECU usu-
ally sends a team with a broad
expertise of the subjects, and
the past several teams sent have
been strong.
Wade said the actual com-
petition is similar to "Jeopardy"
rounds and the teams are given
a number of "toss up" ques-
tions anyone can answer. Each
team is eventually given special
team questions which they must
confer among themselves and
come up with a final answer. To
help ensure a fair competition,
each round of questions is com-
posed by the faculty or chairs
of each geography department.
Wade said that while the main
purpose of the event is to have
fun, the event does benefit ECU
and other participating schools.
"It's a situation where stu-
dents from other schools get
together and generate knowledge
some of the kids, deciding
where they want to go to graduate
school, meet ECU students and
professors said Wade.
"We had a really strong team

Wade said ECU has a well-
rounded geography department
with well-equipped facilities that
provide the students with decent
hands-on experience.
" I enjoyed it I take it seriously
but not too seriously said Best.
"It was fun to compete, learn
new things, and a chance to meet
students from other schools

Bill proposes a public
relation subcommittee
The SGA held their third meet-
ing of the fall semester on Monday
night at Mendenhall with the
proposal of a new bill and a hand-
ful of announcements compos-
ing the minutes of the meeting.
A new bill introduced by stu-
dent senator, William A. Beamer,

ECU's graduate school
sponsored the annual gradu-
ate school fair on Saturday in
Mendenhall giving students
information from more than 30
different schools in attendance.
The fair is an annual event
students are encouraged to
attend, especially sophomores,
juniors and seniors who are
planning on pursuing graduate
school. Although the fair was
centered on the upperclassmen,
underclassmen in attendance
also benefited from the event.
"Even freshmen and sopho-
mores should come, because
they need to get information on
what requirements they need to
apply to grad school said Linda
Hudson, assistant dean of the
graduate school at ECU.
The event helps students
learn more about the different
schools and programs available.
The schools in attendance pro-
vided students with information
packets, applications, deadline
dates, requirements and other
necessary information.
Approximately 35 schools
were present at the fair, including
those within and outside North
A few of the schools were
UNC-G, NCSU, Campbell Uni-
versity, Elon University, NC A&T,
College of Charleston, Edward
Via Virginia College and the Uni-
versity of South Carolina.
ECU participants also in atten-
dance included the Brody School
of Medicine, school of allied
health, department of industrial
technology, school of nursing,
department of international stud-
ies, physician assistant, school
of public health, biochemistry
and the college of education.
. The programs have specific
requirements, which the students
need to obtain before applying to
graduate school. Students must
have at least a 3.0 grade point aver-
age, or have scored high enough
on the MCAT, GRE or MAT test.
Undergraduates can find
out more concerning summer
research programs or internship
opportunities and the funding
for these programs.
Students need to start apply-
ing and fulfilling the require-
ments as early as possible.

tion for acceptance into ECU,
getting into graduate school is

after the show aired.
He was scheduled to go on trial
Monday on sex abuse charges

The Rev. Hubert Clinard. who serves
as interim pastor at Hendrix's former

These numbers can be attributed
in part to the changing political

Helms' popularity and conservative

decades as conservative Democrats
decry the national party as too liberal.
CIA removed detainees from Iraq
WASHINGTON (API-Leading senators
expressed concern Sunday about a
report that the CIA has secretly moved
as many as a dozen unidentified
prisoners out of Iraq in the past
six months, a possible violation of
international treaties.
Sen. John McCain said interrogations
could help extract crucial information
from detainees on plans for attacks
against Americans. But international
law, including the Geneva Conventions,
must be followed, he said.
These conventions and these rules
are in place for a reason because you
get on a slippery slope and you dont
know where to get off McCain told

The detainees were removed
without notification to the
Intematicinal Red Cross, congressional
oversight committees, the Defense
Department or CIA investigators.
The Washington Post said in
Sunday editions, citing unidentified
government officials.
The Justice Department drafted
a memo dated March 19, 2004,
authorizing the CIA to take prisoners
out of Iraq for interrogation according
to the report
The newspaper said Iraqis can be
taken out of the country for a brief but
not indefinite period, and that illegal
aliens can be removed permanently
under local immigration law.

McCormick said the U.S. policy is to
comply with the international treaty,

wife has ever had a real job. Heinz
Kerry said later she'd forgotten
about Mrs. Bush's 10-year stint as a
schoolteacher and librarian.

defended his recent hunting trip
in Ohio, which yielded front-page
photos of him in a camouflage getup
along with mocking comments from
President Bush.

Egypt arrests five for
attacks on tourist sites
CAIRO. Egypt (AP) - A Palestinian
angered by Israeli-Palestinian
violence plotted and died in the
nearly simultaneous car bombings
of a Sinai hotel and tourist camp
that killed at least 34 people this
month, the Egyptian government said
Monday in announcing the arrests of
five Egyptians.
Two other suspects remained at
large, the Interior Ministry said.
The Taba Hilton was heavily damaged
in the worst of the blasts Two other
car bombs exploded at bungalow
campgrounds in nearby Ras Shitan,
also in the Sinai Peninsula. The
resorts were packed with Israeli
tourists who had traveled to the Sinai
during a Jewish holiday.
The government identified the
mastermind of the attacks as Ayad
Said Salah, a Palestinian who had
lived in the Sinai and who died in
the Oct. 7 explosion at the hotel
along with a fellow plotter. Egyptian
Suleiman Ahmed Saleh Flayfil. The
pair, identified through DNA testing,
was trying to leave the scene but
their timed explosives detonated
prematurely, the statement said.
Two other suspects were said to be
at large, Mohamed Ahmed Saleh
Flayfil, brother of Suleiman Flayfil, and
Hammad Gaman Gomah. Mohamed
Flayfil was accused of carrying out the
attack on one of the campgrounds
and Gomah was accused of carrying
out the third bombing.
Police arrested five suspects who
had lesser roles, including obtaining
explosives and the cars used in
the attacks, the ministry said. The
statement did not say when the five
were arrested or provide other details
of their capture.
Death toll In massive
Chinese mine explosion rises
BEIJING (AP) - Rescuers digging
through tons of debris found more
bodies in a coalmine in central
China, raising the death toll in a
gas explosion to 86, with no sign of
survivors among 62 missing miners,
the government said Monday.
Rescue efforts were hampered
by rubble in the gas-choked tunnels
of the Daping Mine near the central
city of Zhengzhou, the state Xinhua
News Agency said.
The explosion last Wednesday
was China's deadliest mine
accident this year.
The confirmed death toll matched
that of last year's worst reported
coalmine accident in China. In
2000. a gas explosion killed 162
people in a coalmine in the southern
province of Guizhou.
Government officials have pointed
to last week's disaster as proof of
China's failure to enforce safety in its
accident-plagued coalmines where
4,153 people were killed in fires,
floods and other disasters in the first
nine months of this year,
"It's been a hard day for us rescuers
Xinhua quoted Liu Xinshu, chief
of the Daping Mine's rescue brigade,
as saying.
"This was the worst coal mine
accident I've seen in more than 30
years and the rescue work is a tough
challenge to us
Rescuers reportedly were looking for
the missing miners some 1,000 feet
below the surface and two miles from
the entrance of the vast mine.
There is no evidence of survivors
Xinhua said.
Non student robbed at knife point
A male non student was robbed in the parking lot west of Tyler Hall Oct. 17 at approximately 12:20 a.m. by a subject who robbed him of his wallet at
knife point. The suspect was described as a black male, wearing blue jean shorts and a black hooded cap. The suspect fled south toward 14th Street
on foot. The victim was not injured during the incident. Anyone with information relating to this incident is asked to contact the ECU Police Department
at 328-6787. Students are reminded to maintain awareness of their surroundings at all times and walk in pairs or in small groups after dark.
U.N. nuclear agency confirms missing explosives
VIENNA, Austria � Several
hundred tons of conventional
explosives are missing from a
former Iraqi military facility
that once played a key role in
Saddam Hussein's efforts to build
a nuclear bomb, the UN. nuclear
agency confirmed Monday.
International Atomic Energy
Agency (IAEA) chief Mohamed
ElBaradei was scheduled to report
the materials' disappearance to
the U.N. Security Council on
Monday, spokeswoman Melissa
Fleming told The Associated
"On Oct.10, the IAEA received
a declaration from the Iraqi Min-
istry of Science and Technology
informing us that approximately
350 tons of high explosive mate-
rial had gone missing Fleming
"The most immediate concern
here is that these explosives could
' have fallen into the wrong hands
In Washington, Democratic
presidential hopeful John Kerry's
campaign said the Bush admin-
istration must answer for what
may be the most grave and cata-
strophic mistake in a tragic series
of blunders in Iraq.
"How did they fail to secure
tons of known, deadly explo-
sives despite clear warnings
from the International Atomic
Energy Agency to do so?" senior
Kerry adviser Joe Lockhart said
in a statement.
The Iraqis told the nuclear
agency the materials had been
stolen and looted because of a
lack of security at governmental
installations, Fleming said.
"We do not know what hap-
pened to the explosives or when
they were looted she said.
Nearly 380 tons of powerful
explosives that could be used to
build large conventional bombs
are missing from the former Al
Qaqaa military installation. The
380 tons is the U.S. equivalent of
the figure of 350 metric tons men-
tioned by the Iraqis, the IAEA said.
The newspaper said they
disappeared after the U.Sled
invasion of Iraq last year.
The explosives included HMX
and RDX, which can be used to
demolish buildings, down jetlin-
ers, produce warheads for missiles
and detonate nuclear weapons.
HMX and RDX are key ingre-
dients in plastic explosives such
as C-4 and Semtex-substances so
powerful that Libyan terrorists
needed just 1 pound to blow up
Pan Am Flight 103 over Locker-
bie, Scotland, in 1988, killing
170 people.
Bush's national security
adviser, Condoleeza Rice, was
informed of the missing explo-
sives in the past month, the
report said. It said Iraq's interim
government recently warned the
United States and U.N. nuclear
inspectors that the explosives
had vanished.
"Upon receiving the decla-
ration on Oct. 10, we first took
measures to authenticate it
Fleming said.
"Then on Oct. 15, weinformed
the multinational forces through
the U.S. government with the
request for it to take any appro-
priate action in cooperation with
Iraq's interim government
"Mr. ElBaradei wanted to give
them some time to recover the
explosives before reporting this
loss to the Security Council, but
since it's now out, ElBaradei plans
to inform the Security Council
today" she said in a letter to the
council president.
Before the war, Inspectors
with the Vienna-based IAEA
had kept tabs on the so-called
"dual use" explosives because
they could have been used to
detonate a nuclear weapon.
Experts say HMX can be used to
create a highly powerful explo-
sion with enough intensity to
ignite the fissile material in an
atomic bomb and set off a nuclear
chain reaction.
IAEA inspectors pulled out of
Iraq just before the 2003 Invasion
and have not yet been able to
return despite ElBaradei's repeated
urging that the experts be allowed
back in to finish their work.

Officials suspect infiltrators
killed 50 soldiers in Iraq
BAGHDAD, Iraq � Iraqi offi-
cials suspect that about 50 U.S
trained Iraqi soldiers slain by
Insurgents may have been set up
by rebel Infiltrators in their ranks.
Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab
al-Zarqawi's group claimed
responsibility for the weekend
attack, the deadliest ambush of
the 18-month insurgency. The
claim was posted Sunday on an
Islamist Web site but its authen-
ticity could not be confirmed.
The 50 unarmed Iraqi sol-
diers were killed on their way
home after completing a training
course at the Klrkush military
camp northeast of Baghdad
when their buses were stopped
Saturday evening by rebels about
95 miles east of Baghdad, Inte-
rior Ministry spokesman Adnan
Abdul-Rahman said.
Some accounts by police said
the rebels were dressed in Iraqi
military uniforms. The insur-
gents forced many of the soldiers
to lie down on the ground and
then shot them in the head,
officials said Sunday.
There was confusion over the
precise number of Iraqi soldiers
killed in the ambush, although the
Iraqi National Guard said 48 troops
and three drivers were killed.
Abdul-Rahman said 37
bodies were found Sunday on the
ground with their hands behind
their backs, shot execution-style.
Twelve others were found in a
burned bus, he said. Some offi-
cials quoted witnesses as saying
insurgents fired rocket-propelled
grenades at one bus.
"After inspection, we found
out that they were shot after
being ordered to lay down on
the earth Gen. Walid al-Azzawi,
commander of the Diyala provin-
cial police, said, adding that the
bodies were laid out in four rows,
with 12 bodies in each row.
The killing of so many Iraqi
Unarmed soldiers were ambushed and killed after training.
soldiers in such an operation
reinforced American and Iraqi
suspicions that the country's
security services were infiltrated
by insurgents.
Iraqi police and soldiers have
been increasingly targeted by
insurgents, mostly with car
bombs and mortar shells. How-
ever, the fact that the insurgents
were able to strike at so many
unarmed soldiers in such a
remote region suggested the guer-
rillas might have had advance
word on the soldiers' travel.
"There was probably collu-
sion among the soldiers or other
groups Diyala's deputy Gov.
Aqil Hamid al-Adili told Al-
Arabiya television. "Otherwise,
the gunmen would not have
gotten the information about
the soldiers' departure from their
training camp and that they were
Last week, a U.S. defense
official said in Washington
that some members of the Iraqi
security services have developed
sympathies and contacts with
the guerrillas. In other instances,
infiltrators were sent to join the
security services, the official said
on condition of anonymity.
He cited a mortar attack Tues-
day on an Iraqi National Guard
compound north of Baghdad as
a possible inside job. The attack-
ers apparently knew when and
where the soldiers were gathering
and dropped mortar rounds in
the middle of their formation. At
least four Iraqis were killed and
80 wounded.
The extent of rebel infiltra-
tion is unknown. However, it
raises concern about the Ameri-
can strategy of handing over
more responsibility to Iraqi secu-
rity forces so U.S. forces could be
drawn down.
In a Web site posting, the
al-Qaida in Iraq claimed respon-
sibility for the ambush, saying
"God enabled the Mujahedeen
to kill all" the soldiers and "seize
two cars and money
Al-Zarqawi and his move-
ment are believed to be behind
dozens of attacks on Iraqi and
U.Sled forces and kidnappings
of foreigners. Many of those
hostages, including three Ameri-
cans, have been beheaded.
Palestinians killed as parliament
prepares for debate on withdrawal
JERUSALEM (AP) � Israeli
troops raided a Gaza Strip refugee
camp to halt Palestinian mortar
fire, killing 14 Palestinians and
wounding 72 Monday, as Israel's
parliament set up for a historic
debate on a withdrawal from the
coastal strip.
In Jerusalem, thou-
sands of police were being
deployed, particularly around
parliament, and helicopters
were kept on standby to fly
legislators to the building
in case demonstrators try to
block access roads. Thousands of
marchers were expected to sur-
round parliament at the start of
the debate Monday afternoon.
The session was to begin
with a speech by Prime Minister
Ariel Sharon, followed by brief
remarks by nearly all the 120
legislators. A vote was expected
Tuesday evening, and Sharon's
aides said he is counting on a
comfortable victory.
"The train has left the sta-
tion, the implementation is
under way government spokes-
man Raanan Gissin said of Sha-
ron's plan.
"After the Knesset vote on
Tuesday we will be in an irrevers-
ible process
However, nearly half of the
40 legislators in Sharon's Likud
Party were to vote against. Sha-
ron's plan making it increasingly
difficult for Sharon to govern.
Immediately after the vote,
Sharon was to renew efforts to
stabilize his coalition by bringing
in the moderate Labor Party.
On Sunday, Israel's Cabinet
voted 13-6 for a key element of
Jewish settlement supporters
Sharon's plan, a bill detailing
compensation for the 8,800
settlers in Gaza and four West
Bank communities who would be
removed from their homes.
Settler families would be
paid between $200,000 to
$350,000 in compensation.
Sharon hopes settlers will accept
cash advances, which could
total up to one-third of the
final compensation payout, to
leave well ahead of the offi-
cial evacuation, heading off
confrontations between
settlers and troops.
The Cabinet also approved
penalties, including prison
terms, for those resisting. The
guidelines will be turned into a
bill and sent to parliament.
Violence in Gaza has
increased in the months since
Sharon announced his plan,
with Palestinian militants trying
to prove they are forcing Israel
protested Sharon's plan.
out and Israel trying to crush
the militants to show it is not
withdrawing under fire.
Early Monday, scores of Israeli
armored vehicles moved into the
Khan Younis refugee camp in
southern Gaza in an operation
the army said was sparked by
recent mortar attacks on nearby
Israeli settlements.
The raid, punctuated by
repeated air strikes and the firing
of tank shells, killed 14 Palestin-
ians and wounded 72, doctors
said. Among the dead were three
members of the Palestinian secu-
rity forces, two gunmen and an
11-year-old boy.
Two Israelis soldiers were
wounded when Palestinians
fired an anti-tank missile at their
armored personnel carrier.
The army said it demolished
the home of a local Hamas leader
who was responsible for attacks
that killed eight Israelis.

a detailed analysis of a song
entitled "Ain't Gonna Bump No

Allan Gurganus, the main
speaker of the event, has
won a number of awards for
his literature ranging from a
variety of topics including strug-
gles of race, religion, sexual
orientation and conscience
which have all been influ-
enced by the eastern North
Carolina region.
Gurganus said he was inspired
by the event and thought it was
well organized. He spent 12 years
of his writing career in Manhat-
tan, NY and said he feels writ-
ers in North Carolina are more
friendly to each other due to the
lesser amount of competition.
Another aspect of North Caro-
lina Gurganus said makes the state
stand out are all the major cities
is being a significant distance
from one another. This gives
each city a stronger sense of pride
and independence.
Kenan said he thought the
event was wonderful and he was
grateful to speak at ECU.
"So much of the past has
been preserved In eastern North
Carolina when compared to
other places Kenan said.
"There is a lot of rich infor-
mation to write about
He said he plans on keeping
eastern North Carolina a part of
his future works.
York said a member of the
audience told him the event
added a year to his life.
Margaret Bauer, southern
literature professor of ECU and
liaison of the authors said she
thought the symposium was suc-
cessful in bringing ECU and the
community together.
Bauer said she reads and
teaches these authors and
enjoyed the opportunity to see
and meet them in person.
Jerry Mathes, graduate stu-
dent in English said he thought it
was a really good program.
"I have been to many sym-
posiums; this one is very well
organized Mathes said.
"The readers were all pow-
erful and related well to the
audience who are mostly
from the eastern North
Carolina region
Ben Roberts, the donor of
many of the novels in the North
Carolina fictional collection at
Joyner Library said he thought
the event was very well planned
out. He said he appreciates the
event speakers for their works
and successes in making this
event happen.
"I have been collecting books
since 1959 said Roberts.
He said he thought
he had a fine collection of a
variety of books relating to
North Carolina's history and he
wanted to make them available
to the public.
"What good did they do sit-
ting on my shelf?" Roberts said.
He contacted the head of
North Carolina collections
before he was eventually
referred to ECU. He said he chose
ECU to donate his books to
because of the good, motivated
workers at Joyner Library and
ECU has the only course in the
entire UNC system that teaches
North Carolina fiction.
Roberts said he hopes ECU will
eventually start a history museum
of eastern North Carolina.

TUESDAY October 26, 2004
Our View
Throughout United States history, the 18-24
year age group has always had the lowest
turnout of voters.
Often the reason for this is because this
age group does not have the foundation of
knowledge or interest in the field of politics
and they are not able to foresee how these
political events will impact their lives within
the next 10, 20 or 30 years from now.
With important issues such as social security,
Medicare, homeland security, the war in Iraq
and talks of reinstating the draft facing the
younger generation, TEC believes that we
should brake this trend of low voter turn out.
We encourage all ECU students to research
the issues and the candidates to make an
informed decision before the deadline on
Nov. 2.
TEC thinks it is time for the younger genera-
tion to come to light and realize that voting is
an important responsibility everyone over the
age of 18 in our country has and they need to
sacrifice the 30-minutes or so from their day
it takes for them to do the procedure.
Serving your civic duty is not a difficult pro-
cedure. Many members of our staff voted last
week. The drive to the early voting office takes
less than 10 minutes and the line in the office
takes less than five minutes.
If you have not voted early and are regis-
tered in Pitt County, you can do so at the
following location:
Technical Enterprise CenterBOE Annex
1800 N. Greene St
The early voting office is open Monday
through Friday from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. from now
until Friday, Oct. 29. The office will also be
open Saturday, Oct. 30 from 8 a.m. -1 p.m.
Here are some more facts about young voters,
from the Youth Vote Coalition concerning the
2000 election. It is our hope these numbers
will increase with this election:
- 30.2 percent of 18 -19 year olds voted, while
43.4 percent were registered to vote.
- 32.4 percent of 18 - 24 year olds voted,
while 48.75 percent were registered to vote.
41.3 percent of those enrolled in school (42
percent of the total 18-24 year old group)
- 36.24 percent of 18 - 30 year olds voted
while 51.6 percent were registered to vote.

Predicting 2004 Election outcomes
Vote isn't going to be as
close as media thinks it
Here, for the first time in print,
prepared to awe you with his incredible
predictions, is the amazing, spectacu-
lar, Psychic Seer Extraordinaire, "The
Great Rigga-Tony
"Thank you, thank you. I shall
begin with no further delay.
First, I look deeply into my Crystal
TV. Quiet now. This requires much
concentration. Ah yes, the snow is start-
ing to clear I see something. A little
horizontal adjustment and Yes! I've
got it! Here we go.
I see Election Day 2004.1 see many,
many votes going to George Bush. Not
so many to John Kerry. 1 see Democrats
in a panic as they realize they will lose
the election. But wait! I see brave war-
riors coming to the aid of the down-
trodden Dems.
Oh, my mistake, those are lawyers.
Sorry about that.
I see these lawyers spreading
like a plague across the land waving
papers and speaking in indecipherable
tongues. They march into courthouse
after courthouse, filing frivolous law-
suit after frivolous lawsuit.
I see these lawyers saying that
there was voter fraud and demanding
recounts because the vote count was
within the "statistical margin of error
based on their polls.
I see Democrat supporters yelling
"voter fraud" and "voter intimidation"
all over the country. But it seems that
when they are asked for proof, they
cannot offer any. But the Dems all
say that the seriousness of the charges
demands an investigation and recount
of all votes even if there is no evidence
of wrongdoing.
I also see that these are areas where
George Bush has won in a traditionally
Democrat stronghold.
No explanations for this coin-
cidence have been offered, and the
mainstream press is not questioning
any of it.
I see John Kerry declaring victory
in the election even though the vote
counts show President Bush winning by
6 percentage points! I see more lawyers
hovering like vultures over carrion.
Can this be possible?
And there is still more?
Ah-h-h-h! The Great Rigga-Tony
can do this no more. My head is about
to explode. I must rest
Let's have a big hand for the Great
How about those predictions?
Unfortunately, they weren't very psy-
Every scenario described is included
in a new Democrat "playbook" on how
to steal the upcoming election.
There really are lawyers prepared
to descend on various parts of the
country if the vote tally doesn't go the
way they "feel" it should. That makes
sense. The Democrats are the party of
"feelers" after all.
There really are people prepared to
claim voter fraud andor intimidation
even if none exists.
And one of John Kerry's people
has stated that Kerry is prepared to
declare himself the winner, even if the
vote was S3 percent Bush, 46 percent
Kerry. The plan would be to "act like a
winner" including naming a Cabinet
and National Security Team, forcing
the Republicans, and the rest of the
country, to "prove" that he hadn't
Now, for those of you who have
been blinded by an irrational hatred for
President Bush, here are a few remind-
ers of other things your hero John Kerry
and the Democrats have done:
They attempted to deny Ameri-
can citizens their First Amendment
rights by threatening lawsuits against
Kerry detractors and those that would
air or print anything derogatory.
This is the same bunch that hailed
Michael Moore's propaganda
attacking the President as news. Hypo-
After "borrowing" a hunting outfit
recently, Kerry trudged into the woods
and later emerged claiming to have
"bagged a bird By the way, where
were the gun control and animal rights
advocates as their "hero" slaughtered
an innocent birdie with a barbaric
shotgun? Hypocrites.
This is the John Kerry who admit-
ted to "sitting in a daze" for 40 minutes
on 911 and who later criticized the
president for reading to school children
for seven minutes after the attack.
These are the people who claim
they are against "disenfranchising"
voters yet are suing in numerous states
to keep Ralph Nader and only Ralph
Nader, off the presidential ballots as
a third party candidate, thereby dis-
enfranchising all Green Party voters.
Kerry is the man who said it is
OK for American soldiers to die
under the auspices of the UN flag but
not unilaterally under the American
flag. Of course, he said this while Bill
Clinton was unilaterally sending U.S.
troops to foreign countries without
saying one word to the UN. Hypo-
All of this is known by the
mainstream, liberal-biased media
but they chose to ignore all of
Kerry's and the Democrats faults while
making up or using forged documents
to try to smear George Bush. Hypo-
With all that has happened and all
that is now known, how can anyone
non-hypocrite vote for John Kerry
knowing what an immoral, unethi-
cal, lying, manipulating, deceitful
example of what the Democratic Party
has become?
In closing, here's a prediction of
my own: this election will not be as
close as the press is trying to make it
out to be. George Bush will be reelected
I'll do my part to ensure that. Will
you do yours?
In My Opinion
Keeping score: Kerry comes out on top
(KRT) � This campaign is nastier
than it needs to be. The truth is, George
W. Bush and John Kerry's records on
key issues aren't as different as they'd
have us believe. Blame the spin doctors,
partisan zealots and lobbyists for the
hatred and hype.
After judging the candidates on
many issues, from health care to ter-
rorism and from unemployment to tax
cuts, I scored it 47 for Kerry, 3 for Bush.
In footbail, that's a rout, but you and I
know it's a bogus score in politics.
For example, Bush says he's for free
trade, but he signed a huge tariff on
foreign steel to please folks in the Rust
Belt. Kerry wants companies to stop
moving jobs off-shore, but he was a
solid free-trader in the Senate.
Issue-by-issue scoring can take you
only so far, usually to the medicine
cabinet for aspirin. So this liberal and
unaffiliated voter -1 bet you thought I
was a Democrat! - would like to share
three basic themes for judging the can-
didates. Most key issues fall under one
of them: We may also call them values,
because they harbor principles dear to
me, and near to the eventual winner.
Life and Death. Let's get the abor-
tion issue out of the way: Every time
religious conservatives push Bush to
outlaw abortion, he side-steps the ques-
tion. Kerry personally opposes abortion
but supports a woman's choice. No
scenario for change here.
But on most other quality of life
questions, Kerry offers a modestly
healthier and safer vision for the
country. He would expand our cur-
rent health care system to include 27
million more Americans. He supports
stem cell research for finding cures to
crippling diseases. He would protect
the forests, skies and rivers better than
Bush, who tends to appoint industry
folks to enforcement jobs.
On poverty, Bush hasn't mentioned
a peep about compassionate conserva-
tism this time. Kerry could come up
with anti-poverty programs that appeal
to the middle class.
World Leadership. If there's one
area that draws a clear line between
the two, it's how Bush and Kerry see
America's role in the world. Kerry sees
it the old way, as leading like-minded
allies into war only as a last resort, or
in nation-building when diplomacy,
fails. Bush has got America going it
alone, which means shooting first and
asking questions later. We know what
the result is in Iraq, but let's look at
one of the unfortunate consequences
of going it alone.
After Iraq and Israel, Mexico is our
most important foreign relationship.
So many Mexicans coming here, so
many U.S. jobs going there. So much
Spanish heard here, so many gringo
corporations heard there.
I once gave Bush big points for his
affinity for Mexico and desire to cut
a new immigration deal. But when
Mexico refused to support his invasion
of Iraq, Bush demoted her to banana
republic. No immigration deal. Every
partnership we have with Mexico, from
the war on drugs to free trade, could
sour or stall.
The War. Whether based on lies or
an honest attempt to bring democracy
to the Middle East, Iraq has become
a quagmire. There is no exit without
humiliation or defeat. Fight until we
win? That's what the hawks wanted
in Vietnam, where American boys and
girls fought the hardest while the locals
mostly ran or complained about our
presence, just like today.
Pirate Rant
I think it's so ridiculous when
a girl walks into class late with
her hair put up in a rag in a way
that all girls know would have to
have taken at least 30 minutes,
then giggle and say the reason for
the rag is a bad hair day.
Pedestrians only have the
right of way at a crosswalk. Any
other time you cross the street
and nearly get hit, it's called jay-
walking and it's your fault.
Attention ECU students:
You're no longer in high school.
So stop complaining how early
your class is, how many tests you
have or that you don't want to be
in class. No one is making you
stay here. If you don't want to be
here, go back home to Mommy
and Daddy.
Why is it ECU spends money
on a new dining hall but some
dorms have no air conditioning
and parking is horrible?
With the numerous crimes
occurring on and around campus
lately, why is it the only advice
ECU police has to offer is to "walk
in pairs or small groups?"
Has anyone ever noticed the
way that people flying coach on
an airplane are treated like cattle
but the people In first class are
treated as though they have all
just won a Nobel Peace Prize, an
Emmy, a Grammy and a Pulitzer
all in the same day?
Just because someone has
turned on their signal and applies
their brakes to execute a turn does
not mean you need to attempt to
ram into the back of their car,
beep your horn and then use the
middle finger wave.
Hey Tony McKee, what if Bill
O'Reilly gets convicted of sexual
harassment? That means you
would have to copy your right-
wing rants from Sean Hannity
exclusively instead of the half
and half of O'Reilly and Hannity
you've been giving us the whole
election season.
If you live in apartments far
from campus, you should ride
the bus to school and stop park-
ing in the neighborhoods across
Fifth Street. Parking across from
campus in the neighborhoods
should only be allowed for the
people who were smart enough to
rent a house, live there and walk
to class. If you want to park there,
find a house and quit taking my
parking spot.
Does my professor not know
how to use his e-mail or is he just
too lazy to let his students know
that class is cancelled?
Did I miss something Thurs-
day in the sports section? While
I saw the regular articles on the
NFL, our sub-par football team
and a nice piece on intramural
football, there was no mention of
either MLB championship series.
I know baseball isn't what it
used to be, but two game sevens,
including the greatest comeback
of all time, deserves a mention.
It's nice to see that there is
a person who can look at both
sides of the issue. Thank you Mr.
Kalajian for igniting discussion
and intelligent (well, sometimes
intelligent) discourse on topics
that the right would rather col-
lege students not talk about. I
applaud you.
Why do people insist on walk-
ing in front of you and going at such
a slow pace? Move over people!
I think it's really messed up
how I graduate on Dec. 11, and
then have to turn around and
come back to take final exams.
Isn't graduation supposed to be
the end?
To all those people who are
not for the war in Iraq, as well as
to those people who are for the
war, the war has happened and is
happening now. The only thing
I ask is that no matter what you
personally believe, you need to
support our troops 100 percent.
I hate how a lot of my demo-
cratic professors push their views
on their classes by bashing Bush.

Emergency workers struggle to
aid northern Japan after quake
NAGAOKA, Japan � Emer-
gency workers struggled to rush
food and blankets to crowded
evacuation centers as strong
aftershocks jolted an earth-
quake-shattered swath of north-
ern Japan on Monday. The
weekend quakes killed 25 people
and drove some 100,000 from
their homes. �
A 5.6-magnitude aftershock
hit just after dawn Monday,
swaying buildings and deepening
fears that the area's already shaky
infrastructure would sustain
more damage. Several smaller
aftershocks were felt through the
night and Japan's Meteorological
Agency warned of more quakes
in the region.
Rain began falling on the
region late Monday, threatening
to unleash mudslides as it pelted
soil loosened by the earthquakes.
Officials said some 98,000
people had sought refuge at gym-
nasiums and public buildings
following Saturday evening's
6.8-magnitude tremor which
knocked down houses, ripped
through roads and bridges, and
derailed a high speed train in
rural Niigata prefecture, about
160 miles northwest of Tokyo.
Much of the region remained
without water, electricity or
gas Monday morning. Officials
struggled over ruined roadways
to fill a shortfall in food supplies
in the area and bring blankets
needed to brave near-freezing
nighttime temperatures.
In Nagaoka, the largest city
in the quake zone, homeless
residents pitched tents in a
neighborhood park and lined up
with cans and bottles in front of
a water truck that arrived for the
first time early Monday.
"The aftershocks are still
strong, so we felt it was safer
to stay here even though our
house wasn't all that badly dam-
aged said Misako Tsubata as
she sipped tea outside the tent
where she was staying with her
two daughters, her mother and
her husband.
The national government
in Tokyo said it was shipping
another 10,000 blankets to the
area. Prime Minister Junichiro
Koizumi said he wanted to visit
the zone "as soon as possible
"We will do our best so that
victims of the earthquake can
live in safety as soon as pos-
sible Chief Cabinet Secretary
An earthquake knocked a bullet train off its tracks in Japan.
Hiroyuki Hosoda told reporters,
adding that the government had
shipped loads of canned biscuits
to the area on Sunday.
Saturday's quake was the
worst to hit Japan since 1995,
when more than 6,000 people
were killed by a 7.2 magnitude
temblor in and around the port
city of Kobe.
U.S. Ambassador to Japan
Howard Baker pledged $50,000 in
aid as a symbol of the U.S. desire
to do whatever it can to assist
the government and people of
Japan during this difficult time.
Some 389 aftershocks strong
enough to be felt were recorded
in the two days following the
initial jolt. By Monday morn-
ing, the death toll had reached
25. About 2,000 people were
reported injured, most of whom
had been treated and released
by Monday.
With buckled roads and
closed tunnels along the high-
ways causing severe traffic jams,
military helicopters ferried food
and supplies to outlying villages,
which remained cut off from
the outside world. Train and bus
services to the area remained
largely shut down, adding to the
residents' feeling of isolation.
The derailment of the bullet
train, while traveling at 125
mph, caused no injuries to the
151 passengers, but it neverthe-
less prompted an investigation
of the safety of Japan's advanced
railway system.
"The situation could have been
worse Chief Cabinet Secretary
Hiroyuki Hosoda said Monday.
"We need to find out if this could
have been prevented and what
should be done because there
could have been a major accident
Indeed, speculation was high
Monday that the train was saved
from overturning because it was
an older, slower and heavier
model. Newer versions have cars
30 percent lighter and travel up
to 185 mph.
The National Police Agency
counted 89 landslides and
roads sliced in 1,330 places.
Destroyed buildings totaled 151
and partially damaged structures
reached 2,607, the Fire and Disas-
ter Management Agency said.
Officials were worried fur-
ther quakes would cause more
mayhem, and helicopters circled
over the area urging residents
through loudspeakers to evacu-
ate their homes.
In Nigorizawa, a village
famous for raising carp, some of
the residents were hiking down
the mountain road with their
belongings to seek shelter. The
area, next to Nagaoka, was one
of the worst hit spots.
Bulldozers worked to clear
the road in front of Suzuko
Kikue's home, which narrowly
missed being buried under a
"When the hillside gave in,
our whole house shook - it was
terrifying said Kikue, 83, as she
cleaned up the kitchen. Kikue
said she would ignore instruc-
tions to evacuate.
"I'd rather stay she said.
"This my home. It's not so
As of Monday evening,
53,000 households were still
without electricity, according to
Tohoku Electric Power Co.

Names In the News:
Thank you Prince Harry for your
partying ways. Another thanks
to Prince Charles and the late
Princess Diana's wild child
for wounding a paparazzo. It
happened Thursday morning
when the 20-year-old prince was
getting into a car outside trendy
London club Pangaea. Surrounded
by paparazzi, the prince apparently
pushed one of their cameras
causing it to cut the photographers
lip. The injured photographer says
Harry lunged at him, attacking
him without provocation. But the
prince also sustained a facial
booboo. A statement from a royal
rep states that Harry was hit in the
face as the paparazzi rushed him.
"In pushing the camera away, it's
understood that a photographer's

No one knows what's going
on, but because of unspecified
threats to his person, family or
pets, John Travolta and wife Kelly
Preston have added a bunch
of new beefy burly guys to their

matter: At Sunday's premiere of
Travolta's film, A Love Song for

Why is "Desperate Housewives"
way hot, way cool and probably
way too good for network TV?
The program has drawn the ire
of ABC's sponsors, three of which
have pulled out, whining that
"Desperate Housewives" is too
racy. According to CNN, Tyson
Foods, Lowe's and Kellogg have
yanked their support. The reason?
CNN says reps at Tyson and
Lowe's say it's the show's brassy,
brash and, yes, brazen script
that bothers them. Meanwhile,
ABC is holding its ground, saying
the show Is attracting more
advertisers, not fewer.

Ukrainian dance company leaps onto ECU stage
Folk dance company
brings cultural
excitement to campus
Internationally renowned
folk dance company, the Virsky
Ukrainian National Dance Com-
pany, brings their magnificent
combination of live music, Ukrai-
nian folk traditions, dazzling
costumes and fascinating tech-
nique of acrobatics, ballet and
folk dance to Wright Auditorium
on Nov. 3.
This is the third performance
in the S. Rudolph Alexander
Performing Arts Series for the
2004-2005 season.
Virsky's stop in eastern North
Carolina is one of many sched-
uled stops during their fall 2004
tour of the U.S. and Canada. This
is their first visit to North Amer-
ica since 1998 and their first stop
ever at ECU. Their 13-week tour
includes some 70 performances
in 57 cities.
The 85-member troupe began
their tour in San Francisco back
in September, and will wrap
up on Dec. 5 in New Orleans
after stopping at ECU and provid-
ing a night of splendid entertain-
The ensemble was founded
in 1937 when ballet-masters
Pavlo Virsky and Mykola Bolotov
headed a group of professional
dancers. Virsky trained as a
ballet dancer with many dance
theaters in the former Soviet
Union, performing as a soloist
in Swan Lake, Don Quixote and
Virsky and Bolotov were fas-
cinated with the culture and soul
of folk dance, thus explaining the
eloquent fusion of ballet dance
World renowned dance company comes to ECU to perform for the Performing Arts Series.
and folk traditions the company
was founded upon and exhibits
in every performance to date. The
ensemble was later named after
Virsky in 1977, two years after
his death.
Under Virsky's direction, the
company entertained audiences
with countless choreographic
compositions that have led them
to international praise.
During their first U.S. tour
in 1958, the company received
a 25-minute ovation at the Met-
ropolitan Opera House in New
York City. They have attracted
similar recognition from the
many venues they frequent in
England, Greece, Italy, Spain,
Germany, France, Venezuela,
Chile and India.
Since 1980 the company
has been under the direction of
choreographic master and artistic
director of the Virsky Ukrainian
National Dance Company, Myro-
slav Vantukh. Vantukh strives to
preserve and develop folk dance
as a choreographic art and works
to implant the spirit of the late
Virsky into every composition.
The dancers of the Virsky
Ukrainian National Dance Com-
pany train every day in this
serious art form, which is very
respected and admired by their
Ukrainian people. They are stead-
fast in their work ethic and
dedicate themselves to perfecting
their dance presentation.
There are 14 pieces part of
the two-hour performance, a
combination of new and old dedi-
cations. Each dance incorporates
anywhere from 20 to 60 dancers
and exhibits a robust combina-
tion of color and speed for high-
energy entertainment.
The exquisite costumes fea-
ture elaborate embroidery and
bright colors and patterns. The
excitement of the costumes bal-
ance well with the breathtaking
skills of jumping, turning and
Cossack kicking (squat-kick).
Along with eye-catching cos-
tumes and spirited dancing, props
such as spears, ribbons, tambou-
rines and scarves are used to
enhance the folk understanding.
Throughout the theatrical
performance, chanting and
singing in their native Ukrai-
nian language is used to tell the
folk stories behind the dancing.

Workshops available
after show
The S. Rudolph Alexander
Performing Arts Series presents
in the Family Fare Series: Tales and
Scales. An engaging ensemble of
four classical musicians who will
perform at ECU's Wright Audito-
rium Nov. 6 at 2 p.m.
With the use of a clarinet,
flute, percussion, bass trombone
and euphonium (a type of tuba),
the performers will convey stories
to the audience with the use of
music, theater and dance.
Tales and Scales, the nation's
only Music-telling ensemble, was
developed in Evansville, Ind to
ignite the imaginations of chil-
dren and families. Their mission
is to spark interest in the cultural
and performing arts.
"This is an unusual
performance said Carol Wood-

designed to instruct students

also building skills with public

First Down East Sculpture Exhibition now showing at ECU
first Down East Sculpture Exhibition will be on display in
Emerge Gallery downtown and Mendenhall on campus.
Art exhibition held
in Mendenhall and
Emerge Gallery
ECU is one of the best places
around to get a feel for all types
of art. Whether it is music, the-
atrical or visual, every type of
genre is covered and should be
taken advantage of by everyone.
The latest visual art show taking
place is The Down East Art Show
2004. Currently the show is
being displayed at Mendenhall
Student Center and Emerge Gal-
lery, located at 404 S. Evans St.
The show opened Oct. 9 and
will run until Oct. 29, with a
closing award ceremony that will
be from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. Each of
the pieces were judged and will
receive awards, including cash
prizes. The artists that submitted
work were not only ECU faculty
and students, but artists all over
North Carolina as well.
The exhibits that one may
expect to find include several
different types of sculptures
such as ceramic, stone, kinetic
(movable objects), metals, stained
glass and found objects.
Each of these different
types of sculptures is carefully
hand-crafted by each artist, and
each have a unique quality that
is brought from the imagination
to each of these many kinds of
sculpture techniques. The pieces
will be judged for creativity,
quality and originality.
"We have broken the show
up for the two venues including
the more traditional types of
sculpture at Mendenhall, and size
permitting - the more alterna-
tive work at Emerge said Holly
Garriot, Emerge Gallery Director.
The event is sponsored by
the ECU Student Union and the
ECU Visual Arts Committee. The
committee hopes this will be an
exhibition that can become an
annual event.
Gallery hours for Emerge are
Tuesday - Saturday 11 a.m. - 6
p.m. and at Mendenhall daily
until the building closes. The
exhibit in Mendenhall is located
upstairs in the gallery.
Some of the artwork being
displayed is for sale. If the art is
sold, the artist will solely receive
100 percent of any profit made.
The closing reception is
open to anyone that would like
to attend. Anyone interested
in the world of art, particularly
state and local artists, is strongly
advised to come and take a look.
Art and sculpture are a visual
invitation to seeing the
creativity and mind's eye of those
that create it. Come out to Emerge
Gallery and MSC to support fellow
students, faculty and state artists.

Rocking Horse Ranch is a great opportunity to get away
from page B1
Volunteer: Yea or Neigh
Students looking for volunteer
opportunities, gaining experience
or achieving extra credit through
volunteering projects know they
need to find a program that is
worth their time. The Rocking
Horse Ranch injreenville is
one such volunteer program.
With the ranch's six Quarter
horses, more than 60 riders per
week and fund raising events,
there are plenty of volunteer
opportunities for ECU students.
Incorporated in 1991, "Rock-
ing Horse Ranch is a nonprofit
organization dedicated to provid-
ing therapeutic and sports riding
to children and adults with dis-
abilities said Linda Moran who
runs the ranch.
Moran, having a professional
background in physical therapy
and riding horses as a hobby for
many years, has been running
the ranch since 1996. She has a
strong belief that the participants
or riders and also, in a differ-
ent way, the volunteers benefit
largely from the program. Moran
believes in the vitality that the
program carries.
About 25 years ago, Moran
helped with a small start-up pro-
gram in Durham, NC by briefly
combining physical therapy and
riding horses. Several years later,
Moran became involved in a
therapeutic riding program in
Kansas City. She initially started
a therapy program for pre-school
children and worked there for
about 10 years. After moving to
Greenville and looking for a pro-
gram to be helpful as a part-time
therapist, Moran soon started
running the ranch full time due
to the demand from people that
wanted to become participants.
The ranch has expanded from
the initial four riders in 1996 to
more than 60 riders per week that
exists today, thanks to the success
of the program and the support
and the generous donation funds
from donors and sponsors. A
Board of Directors, a staff of five
instructors and two barn assis-
tants also help run the ranch.
Rocking Horse Ranch follows
the standards and safety rules of
the North American Riding for
the Handicapped Association, of
which the ranch is a member.
Partly due to the symmetrical
and rhythmic activity of riding
that is beneficial to some people
with disabilities, the activity
promotes more organized neu-
rological activity in response to
sensory stimuli. Moran states
that improvements can be seen
in posture and balance, gross
motor skills, coordination and
motor planning.
"The movement of the horse
is believed to mimic the natural
movement of the human pelvis
while walking said ranch leader
volunteer Samantha Swensen,
a graduate student in the Post
Professional Program of Occu-
pational Therapy in the school
of allied health.
"When a rider whose body is
not functioning correctly, such as
with cerebral palsy, developmen-
tal delay or differences in muscle
tone or structure, their body
can feel the natural movement
patterns of walking and this can
help strengthen the appropriate
muscles; it gives them correct
sensations in order to promote
better use of their body for func-
tional tasks such as supporting
themselves in sitting
Goals such as communica-
tion skills and improved behavior
are also what students and riders
try to achieve through the riding
lessons. Because of the structured
ranch environment and the pat-
tern of behaviors the instructor
uses in order to help, riders learn
and focus on social interaction
and communication skills. With
the riding lessons and the sur-
rounding environment, riders
develop sills that are beneficial.
They become more independent,
as well as productive members of
the community.
Volunteers can help with
the lessons, barn and property
management andor fund-rais-
ing events. Volunteers do not
need previous experience with
horses or in physical or occupa-
tional therapy. There is volunteer
training that volunteers need to
attend, which is held at the barn
Students have many different ways to help out others at the ranch.
before each session of lessons in
the fall and spring. There is also
an orientation that is provided
for the program. Most volun-
teers are side walkers, walking
and leading the horse with a
rider on the horse, under the
direction of staff members or
senior volunteers. Those that
have experience with horses
can volunteer as horse leaders
tacking the horse up (saddle and
bridle or halter) in preparation
and lead the horse around the
ring in a controlled manner.
Many volunteers join in order
to gain experience or learn from
the program, especially for their
major, such as physical therapy,
occupational therapy or recre-
ationalleisure studies. Some
simply join for their love of horses.
"I think this program is a
great way to educate children
and families. This program is also
an exceptional way to measure
how children with disabilities
interact physically, cognitively
and socially with others, while
also providing them with a rec-
reational way of achieving these
goals said Shanell Perkins, a
senior education major.

knowledge in the performing
arts, leading them to become
creative thinkers and learners.
An example of one
workshop is called "ways of
walking For example, the leader
may ask the group to pretend
they were walking through
Jell-O, or to move as if there
is gum stuck to their foot or
walking on ice. Another example
would be a transformation game:
a drumstick becomes a sword,
a cymbal becomes a shield.
Tales and Scales have
performed since 1986 in venues such
as New York's New Victory Theater
and the Smithsonian Institution's
Discovery Theater and with
orchestras such as the Boston,
Chicago and Atlanta Orchestras.
With more than 200 performances
a year the group goes to art centers,
schools and outreach programs
around the country.

Florida State wants students to
party - just minus the alcohol
(KRT) � Frank Mandaro
doesn't get out as much as he
used to. Now that he's concen-
trating on his classes, the Florida
State University senior says he
only goes out to drink with
his buddies about three times
a week. That's a big difference
from his freshman year, he says,
when he went out every night.
"I don't know, man said
Mandaro, who has been a bar-
tender for a little over a year. "I
used to drink a lot
But if some FSU officials
had their way, Mandaro and
thousands of students like him,
wouldn't put some much empha-
sis on drinking as a means to
having a good time and reliev-
ing stress.
It may be easier said than
done, but the Partnership for
Alcohol Responsibility - along
with other FSU organizations
in the university's "One Voice
Healthy Campus 2010" initiative
- Is attempting to change the
social norm around Tallahassee,
Fla as students know it. That
means telling students that not
everybody's doing it, after all,
and getting the community to
preach the same message.
"You try to change the norms
by changing the expectancies
said PAR director Christine Fran-
Once students get used to
partying without bringing out the
beer, she said, they'll realize they
never needed it in the first place.
"Good luck on that, 1 guess
said Jon Chambers, 19. "You're not
gonna stop people from drink-
For some Florida State Uni-
versity students such as Cham-
bers and Mandaro, drinking
and partying comes with the
Seminole territory.
It's why the university was
ranked No. 6 this year as one
of the country's top partying
schools by the Princeton Review
and proud of it, Mandaro said.
"When you get a national
championship, you can expect to
be a party school said Mandaro.
Although It's been five years
since FSU earned that honor,
Mandaro said the football season
keeps the parties going.
"We're still doing what we
always do Franzetti said the
organization has a tough job to
do, but she believes students will
stop drinking as much If they
think what they're doing isn't
the norm.
"We have been on and off the
party list for about 20 years now
Franzetti said.
"We're No. 6 this year, but we
don't give a lot of credence to that
because we don't think it's a very
scientific study
PAR is creating a student
advisory committee and con-
tinuing its outreach to first-year
students through educational
programs in efforts to get its
message across.
Even local bar employees say
they're willing to get involved.
So far, Franzetti said, 30 of them
have signed a hospitality code of
conduct in which they promise
to watch how they promote
drink specials and encourage
lively drinking atmospheres in
their places of business.
PAR is also working with law
enforcement to encourage more
sobriety checkpoints around the
campus, Franzetti said.

Southern Miss rebounded from an embarassing loss against Alabama and claimed their fifth victory of the season as the
Pirates stumbled in Hattiesburg, Miss, this past weekend just two weeks after beating Conference USA foe Tulane, 27-25.
Southern Miss blows
game open in first half
Wow. What a difference a
couple of weeks make in the
brevity of a football season. The
ECU football program looked to
be on the upswing in riding the
coat tails of a come-from-behlnd
home win and an open date.
Not any more.
After a reevaluation in the
form of Southern Mississippi
Saturday night, the Pirates' ship
looks more like a dingy.
The Pirates (1-5, 1-3) were
beaten in every utter sense of the
word in front of a Homecoming
crowd at M.M. Roberts Stadium
in Hattiesburg, Miss. The Golden
Eagles used 35 first-half points to
cruise to a 51-10 win against the
hapless Pirates. In fact, words
cannot describe how badly ECU
was beaten. It was just that bad.
Actually, it was worse than that.
It took Southern Miss just eight
seemingly effortless plays to score
first when Wayne Hardy scam-
pered in the end zone from four
yards out. Seven of the plays on
the first series were rushing plays.
On a game-changing play,
Antoine Cash picked up a James
Pinkney fumble on a sack and
ran it 62 yards to ECU's two-yard
line. Southern Miss running back
Anthony Harris scored on the
next play, a two-yard run with
1:13 remaining in first quarter.
It only got easier for the
Golden Eagles. The four-time
Conference USA champions
took advantage of an early holi-
day present from the Pirates.
In a questionable call at best,
the Pirates botched a fake-punt
attempt by Ryan Doughtery. The
Golden Eagles took control from
the ECU 19-yard-line and scored
three plays later when backup
quarterback Damion Carter
scored on a one-yard sneak.
The vultures began to circle
the Mississippi skies and began
to pluck away at every oppor-
tunity. After a missed 43-yard
attempt by ECU kicker Cameron
Broadwell, Southern Miss used
a 14-play, 74-yard drive to run
straight through the heart of
ECU's defense. Harris notched his
second rushing touchdown of the
day from 13 yards out.
Return specialist John
Eubanks added fuel to the fire

SID � Louisville's Ryan
Edwards scored two first-half
goals and goalkeeper Charles
Edwards picked up his first shut-
out of the season as the Cardinals
defeated ECU, 3-0, in Conference
USA men's soccer at Bunting Field
Sunday afternoon. The Pirates (6-
9,2-4 C-USA) out-shot Louisville,
14-13, in the game and held a 6-4
advantage on corner kicks.
"We had three mental mis-
takes that led to three Louis-
ville goals. I have to give Lou-
isville credit for finishing their
chances said ECU Head Coach
Michael Benn.
"We certainly generated a
good number of opportunities on
the day, but couldn't find a way
to score goals. I didn't have the
team as prepared as they needed
to be. We'll go back to work Tues-
day and get ready for Saint Louis.
There's still a lot to play for
Sophomore goalkeeper Brian
Pope played all 90 minutes and
registered seven saves in the loss
for ECU. Charles Edwards tallied
six saves in 90 minutes. He also
had an assist on a goal.
Louisville (5-6-4, 2-3-1)
scored the game's first goal in the
seventh minute. Ryan Edwards
chipped a pass from Anthony
Celebre over Pope's head giving
Louisville a 1-0 lead. ECU had
a chance to tie the game when
Terron Amos broke through
the Louisville defense. Charles
Edwards made the save on the
shot to end the threat.
The Cardinals led 2-0 after
Ryan Edwards took a goal kick
from Charles Edwards on a break-
away and knocked it past Pope for
his second goal at the 39:55 mark.
Jonathon Williams scored
his first goal of the season in the
65th minute when Clay Talley
started a breakaway on the left
side and crossed to Williams who
punched it in, giving the Cardi-
nals a 3-0 lead.
ECU had two good oppor.
tunities in the final minutes off
comer kicks, but failed to score.
The Pirates hit the road for two
C-USA games. ECU travels to St.
Louis next weekend before head-
ing to USF the following week.

Lady Pirates pick up huge
wins at Lousiville, Cincinnati
ECU wins fourth in a
row against Cardinals
With back-to-back
road overtime wins this
weekend against Cincin-
nati and Louisville, it's
pretty safe to say the Lady
Pirates are on a roll.
The 2-1 win against
the Bearcats and the 3-2
win against the Cardinals
marks a four-game win-
ning streak, the longest of
the season for ECU. Two
weeks ago, the Lady Pirates
weren't even sure if they
were going to be one of
the top eight teams that
make the Conference USA
tournament. Now, they are
in fifth and guaranteed a
spot in the tourney.
On Friday, the Lady Pirates
started the weekend off at Cin-
cinnati. The Bearcats have strug-
gled this season with only one
conference win. But the Bearcats
would be the first to attack with
an early goal in the 14th minute
of play off a free kick.

and got their chance after the
break. In the 69th minute, the
Pirate attack found a three-on-
two breakaway. Junior Meghan
McCalliqn found a wide-open
Sarah Stoltz, who fired the ball
past the Bearcat goalkeeper to
tie the game.
The rest of the half played
scoreless, so overtime was needed
to finish this affair. In over-
time, senior Krystel Pabey
threw the ball from out-of-
bounds to junior Carmen
Calpo. Calpo fired and
scored her third goal this
season, but more impor-
tantly the game winner.
With the momentum
from the win, the Lady
Pirates headed to Louis-
ville to battle the second
place Cardinals. Both
teams fought 45 scoreless
minutes before starting
the second half. Unlike
against Cincinnati, the
Pirates would be the first
team to score.
Sophomore Tara Shaw
scored her second goal
of the season in the 55th
minute to put the Lady
Pirates up 1-0. The defense held
off the Cardinals until the 75th
minute of play when Louisville
tied the match up.
Three minutes later, Louis-
ville took a 2-1 lead.
Free pizza, subs and basketball,
a hard combination to turn down.
Many Pirate fans thought so
as they came out last Thursday
night to enjoy food and fun and
to support the 2004-2005 men's
Pirate Basketball team in their first
public appearance of the season.
Head Coach Bill Herrion
spoke to the fans during the event
about this year's schedule, high-
lighted by the BCA Invitational,
and introduced his young Pirates
to an eager crowd.
"I think the event went really
well said Herrion.
"The reason we put this on
is to get the students and fans
involved and get them excited
about the upcoming season
Also in attendance was ECU's
new Athletic Director Terry Hol-
land, who received a standing
ovation at his introduction.
"It goes without question
that he was a great hire for ECU
Herrion said.
"For what we need now and
where we need to go in the
future, he is truly the man for
the job
While Holland's standing
O stirred up the crowd, the fan
involvement would reach its peak
of the night when coach Herrion
polled the crowd to see who they
wanted in the dunk contest.
Crowd consensus seemed to favor
the likes of Moussa Badiane, Mike
Cook, Marvin Kilgoire, Jonathan
Hart and Tom Hammonds, Jr.
Hart's off-the-shot-clock dunk
was the early fan favorite.
With a couple of late dunks,
however, Kilgoire would win the
crowd and the contest.
The entertainment was just
getting started as the Pirates split
off into teams and scrimmaged
for two eight-minute periods,
showcasing what might be one
of the more athletic teams the
Pirates have had in a few years.
Having only practiced for
five days, Herrion let fans know
see B-BALL page 85
see SOCCER page 85 The Pirates showcased several new players last Thursday.

strong performance for the
second straight weekend at the
Minges Aquatic Center. Both the
men's and women's teams easily
knocked off in-state opponent
Davidson. The winning scores
were almost identical with the

On the women's side, fresh-
man sensation Megan Pulaski
continued her hot start as a new
Pirate, winning the 1000 free-
style (10:19.55) and 500 freestyle
(5:08.76). Jennie Meade, Adri-
enne Williams, Holly Williams,
Courtney Felker, EC Moore and
Diane Parker each added victo-
ries for the Pirates while both
relay teams, 400-yard freestyle
and 400-yard medley, came in
with winning times of 3:38.41
and 3:58.09 respectively.
Freshman diver Christie Icen-
hower found the win column as
well in a clean sweep in the
diving events. Icenhower posted
a 237.53 performance in the
one-meter dive and 237.30 in the
three-meter dive.
On the men's side, senior
Gavin Stark paced ECU with two
first place finishes of his own in
the 200 freestyle (1:43.86) and
100 freestyle (47.01). Like the
women, the men also swept the
relay events, posting times of
3:14.09 in the 400 freestyle relay
and 3:33.50 in the 400 medley
relay. Justin Brinkley, Greg Nev-
ille, Casey Cronin and Charlie
McCanless all managed a win as
well for the Pirates.
Freshman diving seemed
to be the theme of the day as
another freshman, this time on
the men's side, swept the one
and three meter dives also. Ryan
Hunt picked up 233.55 points in
his one-meter dive performance
while exploding to 258.60 in the
The Wildcats were able to
muster up a few wins in the events.
Eleanor Trefzger won the
200 butterfly in 2:09.66 for
the women, while William and

Lady Pirates improve
record with C-USA win
After losing their last four
games, the ECU Volleyball Team
was desperate for a win last week-
end in order to stay in competi-
tion for the Conference USA tour-
nament. The team's record was
8-13 as they prepared for action
against two conference oppo-
nents, Tulane and Southern Miss.
Throughout the year, ECU
Head Coach Colleen Munson has
stressed the same strategy.
"Finishing the game and
finishing the match said
This weekend Munson's strat-
egy proved to be the make or break
element for the Lady Pirates.
ECU jumped out to a four-
Volleyball splits weekend
conference action
point lead early in game one
against Tulane. The Lady Green
Wave then went on a 6-2 run
to tie the score 15-15. After an
11-5 run, Tulane pulled ahead
and never looked back as they
defeated the Lady Pirates in game
one 30-22.
In game two, ECU wasn't able
to hold onto the lead after being
up 21-12. Tulane was able to go
on an 18-9 run to win the second
game 30-28. Tulane had a .333
hitting percentage in the win.
The pattern remained the
same in the third and final game
of the night. ECU went up 21-15
only to fall again on a late 10-1
run by the Lady Green Wave,
30-26. The sweep set the Lady
Pirate's losing streak at five games.
ECU junior libero Johanna
Bertini had a career game with
26 digs. Overall, the Lady Pirates
were out-hit by Tulane .255, 158.
The following day, the Lady
Pirates were looking to rebound
from the loss as they faced
Southern Miss. ECU wouldn't be
denied as they swept through the
competition, winning in three
games 30-24, 30-26 and 30-17.
ECU junior Paige Howell posted
a .714 hitting percentage and had
10 kills in the win. Sophomore
Jaime Bevan had 11 kills and four
serving aces.
"We won one and we lost
one Munson said.
"We couldn t finish out the
game against Tulane. We stressed
it and on the second night we
were able to do that, we came
back and we won
The win put an end to ECU'S
losing streak as well as setting the
Lady Pirate's conference record at
3-5. With only five conference
games left on the schedule, every
game is critical as ECU takes on
Charlotte away this weekend.

The Lady Pirates will face a must-win contest this weekend against the Charlotte 49ers.

600 Clubhouse Dr. � Chocowinity, NC � (252) 946-7788
AP � One of auto racing's
most successful dynasties was
in mourning after a plane
owned by Hendrick Motors-
ports crashed in thick fog en
route to a NASCAR race, killing
all 10 people aboard, includ-
ing the son, brother and two
nieces of owner Rick Hendrick.
The Beech 200 King Air
took off from Concord, NC,
and crashed Sunday in the Bull
Mountain area seven miles from
the Blue Ridge Regional Airport
in Spencer, near the Martinsville
Speedway, said Arlene Murray,
spokeswoman for the Federal
Aviation Administration.
"It's just very tough said
Donnie Floyd, an employee of
Hendrick, who placed a bouquet
of flowers outside the company's
Charlotte; NC, headquarters.
"We are like one big family
News of the crash halted Hen-
drick driver Jimmie Johnson's vic-
tory celebration after the Subway
500 in Martinsville as news
of the deaths filtered through
the Hendrick team, which also
includes drivers Jeff Gordon,
Terry Labonte and Brian Vickers.
The cause of the crash was not
immediately known, but it hap-
pened in rough, hard-to-reach
terrain in weather described
as "extremely foggy" by Dale
Greeson, who lives about a mile
from the site.
Hendrick Motorsports issued
a statement late Sunday asking
"that those affected be kept in
your thoughts and prayers, and
respectfully requests that privacy
be considered throughout this
difficult time
Rick Hendrick didn't go to
the race because he wasn't feel-
ing well, a team spokesman said.
The National Transporta-
tion Safety Board was to begin
an investigation Monday. It
was the second major plane
from page B4
With only five minutes to
play, the Cardinals were whistled
for a handball inside the scor-
ing box, resulting in a penalty
kick for the Pirates. Krystel
Pabey was called on to try to
tie the game. Her shot flew
past the Louisville goalkeeper
and sent the game to overtime.
After a scoreless first over-
time, McCallion continued her
amazing play, firing from 30
yards out and just out of reach
for the Cardinal goalkeeper. The
goal gave the Lady Pirates their
fourth victory in a row and put
McCallion in second place on the
schools all-time scoring list.
The Lady Pirates end their
season at home this Friday
against South Florida at 2 p.m.

from page B4
before the Pirates hit the court
the kinks were not quite all
worked out yet.
"What you look for in the
beginning is the team's attitude
and are they working hard in prac-
tice to get better Herrion said.
"So far their attitude and work
ethic has been great and they are
very enthusiastic. Our execution
just needs to get better
Hammonds, a freshman
guard, led Gold with nine points
on 4-of-7 shooting from the-
field. "Moose" chipped in six
points while swatting a couple
of shots as well.
Last year standout, Mike Cook,
paced Purple with nine points of
his own and three rebounds.
The Pirates will hold their
annual Purple-Gold scrimmage
on Saturday, Oct. 30, prior to the
ECU-Army football game. Tip-off
is scheduled for approximately
12:30 p.m. This scrimmage will
also be free to both students and
the general public.

accident in less than a week: On
Tuesday, 13 people died and two
were injured when a commuter
plane crashed and burned near
Kirksville, Mo. Many of the pas-
sengers were doctors and other
medical professionals heading
to a conference.
Hendrick employs 460 work-
ers at its North Carolina com-
pound, which includes race
shops and a 15,000-square-foot
museum and team store. Flowers
were placed on shrubs leading
into the compound.
The tragedy came on what
was to be a triumphant day for
the company, with Johnson
winning his series-best sixth
race and Gordon rallying from
a poor start to finish ninth and
move into second place in the
championship standings.
NASCAR officials learned of
the accident during the Subway
500, but withheld the news from
the Hendrick drivers until after-
ward, said NASCAR spokesman
Jim Hunter.
NASCAR drivers reacted with
a familiar sadness. Series stars
Davey Allison and Alan Kulwicki
were killed in separate air crashes
in 1993.
"I was hoping I'd never
hear this said NASCAR driver
Mark Martin to the Speed Net-
work after the race. Martin's
father, stepmother and half
sister died in 1998 when a
private plane his father was
piloting crashed in Nevada.
"I just feel so bad it's unreal
Martin said, himself a pilot.
Driver Rusty Wallace, also a
pilot, said he considered the air-
ports in Talladega, Ala and Mar-
tinsville the two most dangerous
facilities to flyinto for races.
Hendrick's team has been on
a season-long celebration of its
20th anniversary in NASCAR's
top series. The organization has
won five titles in the top series,
three truck series championships
and one Busch series crown.
The team has more than 100
Cup series wins, making Rick
Hendrick just the second team
owner in NASCAR's modern era
to surpass that mark. He's also
viewed as a pioneer for begin-
ning the movement to multicar
teams in the 1990s.
Hendrick Motorsports identi-
fied the dead as: Ricky Hendrick,
Rick Hendrick's son; John Hen-
drick, Rick Hendrick's brother
and president of Hendrick
Motorsports; Kimberly and Jen-
nifer Hendrick, John Hendrick's
22-year-old twin daughters;
Joe Jackson, an executive with
DuPont; Jeff Turner, general
manager of Hendrick Motors-
ports; Randy Dorton, the team's
chief engine builder; Scott Lath-
ram, a pilot for NASCAR driver
Tony Stewart; and pilots Richard
Tracy and Elizabeth Morrison.
Ricky Hendrick began his
career driving a Busch car for
his father, but retired in 2002
because of a racing-related shoul-
der injury. His father then made
him the owner of the Busch car
Vickers drove to the series cham-
pionship last season, and was
grooming him for a larger role.
Rick Hendrick pleaded guilty
in 1997 to a single count of mail
fraud involving the payment of
$20,000 to a Honda executive.
He was fined $250,000, but
avoided jail time because he was
battling a near-fatal case of leu-
kemia. He was later pardoned by
former President Clinton.
Joe McGovern, a racing fan
from Concord, NC, drove by
the team's compound to pay his
respects. "It's just devastating
said McGovern.
"This was just a great racing
tearn and they are also such
nice" people
from page B4
when his punt return set up a
one-yard score from Sherron
Moore even though Eubanks
dropped the ball out of bounds
despite no one being within ten
yards of him. Moore was one
of the six total Southern Miss
players that took part in the
party that convened in ECU's
end zone.
The 35-0 halftime margin
was the largest since trailing
NC State, 37-0, on Sept. 8, 1973.
Yet, another record set by these
Pirates. At least these 2004 Pirates
and their coach are doing all
they can to be remembered.
The Pirates tried to keep it
respectable in the second half,
but had trouble.
Two different Southern Miss
receivers were the beneficiaries
of Damion Carter touchdown
passes in the second-half. After
passing for only 16 yards in a
loss to Alabama last week, Carter
finished the day with 84 yards on
six-of-nine passing.
"The offense outplayed us
said linebacker Chris Moore.
"We can't tackle
Moore should know that
tackling is an essential part
of the game since he was the
Conference's second-leading
returning tackier.
The Pirates did drive the field
late in the third-quarter. However,
James Pinkney was sacked two
plays in a row to force a 44-yard
field goal by Cameron Broadwell
for the first Pirate points.
The lone bright spot for ECU
was Chris Johnson catching a
three-yard pass from Pinkney
late in the fourth quarter.
Pinkney eclipsed the 1,000-
yard mark for a season with his
188 yard outing on 18-of-33
passing. He has notched a touch-
down pass in the last six consecu-
tive games. The sophomore QB
tried to take the blame after the
game, which was a noble act.
The ECU rushing attack,
well, wasn't anything resembling
an attack. After Chris Johnson
earned 158 yards last week, the
Pirates finished with negative
three yards rushing. Yes, they
went backwards.
In a microcosm of the game,
backup senior quarterback Des-
mond Robinson tripped over
his own feet in the end zone for
a safety to give Southern Miss
their final points. Southern
Miss didn't touch him, but their
defense was that intimidating.
Preseason C-USA Defen-
sive Player of the Year Michael
Boley was credited with 11 tack-
les, five of which were for loss
and two for sacks. Southern
Miss finished with 13 tack-
les for loss and eight sacks.
Boley has helped lead South-
ern Miss to 13 straight C-USA
wins. A team that has served as
a rival and used to be parallel
to the Pirates flexed its muscles
and expressed its dominance
against a truly inferior team. The
Golden Eagles are again nation-
ally ranked, spotted at No. 25.
Maybe the Pirates aren't
comfortable playing in a for-
eign environment. In the three
games on the road, the Pirates
have given up 166 points or
55.3 points per contest. John
Thompson's team is averaging
a 42-point loss every time they
travel outside of Greenville.
Newly appointed Athletic
Director Terry Holland was on
hand for the drubbing. Hope-
fully, he feels the pain of the
Pirate Nation seeming to collec-
tively moan during the game.
"We didn't execute on every-
thing said ECU Head Coach
John Thompson after the game.
"Offense, defense and special
teams. We came up way, way,
way short
What more is there
to football than offense,
defense and special teams?
Either way, the Pirates will
play Army in Dowdy-Fick-
len Stadium on Saturday at
3 p.m. for Military Apprecia-
tion Day. Army is riding a two-
game winning streak with new
Head Coach Bobby Ross at the
helm. Ross has breathed new
life into the Black Knight pro-
gram that was the laughing-
stock of the nation. Maybe, the
Pirates will take some notes.
