Election inspires political
activism on ECU campus
Anti-Bush lobbyists voice their political opinions in Wright Plaza Tuesday afternoon in attempt to persuade student voters.
A student eyewitness said while he thought their actions were unethical, he supported the fact that they were exercising
freedom of speech. Another student said he was happy to see ECU students are politically active in general, and hopes
to see a higher turnout of student voters in the upcoming election on Nov. 2.
ECU helps in receiving federal grant
$100,000 grant given
to combat substance
abuse among youth
ECU recently assisted local
anti-substance abuse organiza-
tions to receive a federal grant
of $100,000 to help alleviate the
problem of substance abuse with
youth in local schools.
Jan Tovey, coordinator at ECU
Regional Development Services,
said she was approached by David
Ames, medical director of Pitt
County Mental Health, who said
there was a need for substance
abuse prevention among the
youth in local counties. Tovey
assisted in helping receive the
$100,000 federal grant from the
Department of Juvenile Justice.
The major objective the
coalition has for the federal
grant is building up an
evaluation which would keep
a record of what kind of
impact the program is having.
He said a Web site would be
set up to allow a contact for an
evaluatot. Currently, there Is
a drug evaluation set upu-With
middle schools nationwide whicfi
asks students several questions,
including if they used any kind
of drug in the past month, how
old they were when they first
used, how dangerous they think
it is and what their peers think
of the issue.
"We're going to try to
build on that as our core tool
said Ames.
"The whole goal is to take the
issue out from under the table
and put it on top of the table
The second objective is
financing the several programs
that are to be put in place.
Ames said four areas where
the funding will be concentrated
include providing counselors for
ninth grade students who are at
a high risk of the issue, providing
training projects with high risk
students, providing a sufficient
media base making parents aware
of the program's services and
public information campaigns
which would look for opportuni-
ties to present their services.

Bush, Kerry trade national security barbs
ONALASKA, Wis. � President
Bush and Sen. John Kerry accused
each other of lacking the hard-
nosed resolve of Cold War presi-
dents - from Democrat Truman
to Republican Reagan - reaching
across party lines a week before
Election Day to try to break their
campaign deadlock.
With tensions rising Tuesday
in both camps, Kerry escalated
his criticism of Bush over explo-
sives missing in Iraq, asserting
that the weapons could be used
against American troops and
citizens. He accused the presi-
dent of keeping the cost of war
in Iraq under wraps until after
Election Day.
"What else are you keeping
from the American people?"
Kerry said in Green Bay.
Across the state, Bush said
his rival favors "the position of
weakness and inaction" contrary
to "the great tradition of the
Democratic Party
A Los Angeles Times poll
showed the popular vote tied,
48-48, with Bush-weary voters
open to change on Iraq and the
economy but harboring doubts
about Kerry's ability to lead the
nation against terror.
New state surveys showed the
race also knotted in Florida, Ohio
and Pennsylvania, the three most
important battlegrounds in the
race for 270 Electoral College votes.
Behind the scenes, both cam-
paigns tweaked their stump
speeches, advertising strategies
and get-out-the-vote drives. In
addition to Wisconsin, Bush
visited Iowa while Kerry traveled
to Nevada and New Mexico - all
toss 4JPftates.
After spending weeks casting
Kerry as a flip-flopping liberal in
TV ads, Bush planned to close the
race with a 60-second commer-
cial designed to portray himself
as a trustworthy, steady leader.
The high point, according to
advisers, is a clip of a choked-up
Bush addressing the Republi-
can National Convention about
meeting the children of slain U.S.
soldiers "who are told their dad or
mom is a hero but would rather
just have their dad or mom
Kerry's latest ad accuses the
Bush administration of failing
to secure nearly 400 tons of
explosives that are missing from
a military installation south of
Baghdad. "His Iraq misjudgments
put our soldiers at risk, and make
our country less secure Kerry
says of Bush in the ad.
He said in Green Bay the
explosives "could be in the hands
of terrorists, used to attack our
troops or our people
Vice President Dick Cheney
responded for Bush from Florida,
saying, "It is not at all clear that
those explosives were even at the
weapons facility when our troops
arrived in the area of Baghdad
In the battle of past presidents,
Bush said Democrats Roosevelt,
Truman and Kennedy showed
"confidence and resolve in times
of war and hours of crisis assert-
ing that Kerry lacks such mettle.
Kerry said Presidents Roos-
evelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Ken-
nedy and Reagan all built strong
alliances, a contrast to Bush who
Kerry said "has failed in his funda-
mental obligation as commander
in chief to make America as safe
and secure as we should be

crat appealed in both Spanish

and English to undecided voters.
"We're in a bigger mess by the
day and the president can't see it
or can't admit it, but either way,
America is less safe he said.
Bush made a direct pitch to
wavering Democrats, particularly
moderates unsure about Kerry.
"If you believe America
should lead with strength and
purpose and confidence and
resolve, I'd be honored to have
your support and I'm asking for
your vote he said.
In a gesture of moderation
aimed at the same voters, Bush
told ABC-TV he supported civil
unions for homosexual couples
"if that's what a state chooses
to do The remark upset some
conservatives who not only want
to amend the Constitution to ban
gay marriage, as does Bush, but
also would bar state approval of
gay civil unions.
Campaign pitches varied
from deadly serious to almost
silly. A radio ad reminded Wis-
consin voters that Kerry got the
name of their beloved Green Bay
Packers' football stadium wrong.
Kerry recruited rocker Bruce
Springsteen to play at his rallies.
In Wisconsin and a dozen
or so other competitive states,
mailboxes were being flooded
with campaign leaflets - most of
them negative.
A Republican National Com-
mittee mailing features a picture
of Jane Fonda and Michael Moore,
two anti-war liberals supporting
Kerry, and the headline, "John
Kerry's heart and soul of America?"
In Ohio, voters received a
mailing with a picture of a soldier
in camouflage uniform with the
caption, "Supporting him in Iraq
shouldn't mean shortchanging
working families in America
Zero tolerance
policy in full effect
Students found with illegal drugs will be evicted from residence halls.
Policy removes
students from on-
campus housing
The new zero tolerance policy
was enacted this year in attempt
to keep dorm residents and others
from using or marketing illegal
This policy was put into place
by Campus Living in an attempt
to keep the campus, its residents
and students safe.
Maggie Olszewska, assistant
director for the Office of Student
Conflict Resolution, said the
policy is a much needed one and
serves an important purpose.
"The policy states that if any-
body uses illegal drugs or .even
has drugs or drug paraphernalia
either on their person or in their
room, they will have their con-
tract with housing cancelled
said Olszewska.
Olszewska said even though a
student may not be the one using
the drugs, if the student is in the
room or around someone who
has drugs, the student would be
held responsible.
Olszewska said the problem
of drugs and substance abuse
has always been an issue, but
it's one that has been growing
over time.
"I think, nationally, there
is so much more talk about
drugs and how they impact stu-
dents and living communities
Olszewska said.
"The option was always
there, but now it's been made
a mandate
Campus Living has taken sev-
eral actions to inform students of
the new policy.
When students moved into
the dorms, they were required
to sign a piece of paper indicat-
ing they are aware of the policy.
Posters and fliers have beeh
placed around campus and in
residence halls in order to keep
people informed.

distributed around the dorms,

ECU professor denied tenure,
students protest decision
Students hold
open forum with
ECU associate professor James
Toppen was denied tenure arous-
ing emotions among several of
his students in the industrial
distribution program.
Toppen, who teaches courses
in industrial distribution and
logistics, a branch of the indus-
trial technology department, was
not approved by the committee
reviewing his application, which
angered several of his students,
prompting them to protest the
university's decision.
The students were granted a
forum where industrial technol-
ogy department chairperson,
Paul Kauffmann, spoke with
the students about the denial of
Ryan Williams, president of
the professional association of
industrial distribution and a stu-
dent of Toppen, said the forum
was attended by about 75 to 80
Williams said he thought the
forum would be an opportunity
for the students to voice their
concerns over the tenure issue.
It was instead an explanation on
how the process of tenure works
and why Toppen was not receiv-
ing tenure.
"Dr. Kauffmann just
explained the tenure process to
us said Williams.
"He was very vague and
wasn't too concerned with our
feelings he just kept referring
us to the faculty manual
Toppen said he failed to
receive tenure because he did
not publish a sufficient number
of articles in journals specifically
relating to his department, which
suggests his research and creative
activities were not deemed suf-
ficient by the committee.
"I started the industrial distri-
bution program seven years ago
when there were nine students
and it was only a concentration
with one unique course said
"Now there are 180 students
and 12 unique courses
Toppen said he has been
involved in building every course
in the program, which placed 97
percent of its graduates in jobs
last year.
Dare Spurling, senior indus-
trial distribution major, said the
industrial distribution program is
like a family because of Toppen's
caring and compassionate teach-
ing style.
"This is his major, the pro-
gram is going to lose a lot of
students said Spurling.
Due to his being denied
tenure, Toppen will have one
more year before his employment
at ECU will end.
According to the ECU faculty
manual, tenure ensures academic
freedom by allowing faculty
members to express unpopular
points of view by protecting
them from involuntary suspen-
sion or discharge. Once tenured,
the only grounds for dismissal are
incompetence, neglect of duty or
misconduct of such a nature as to
indicate the individual is unfit to
To become tenured at ECU,
a professor must be approved by
a committee that includes three
tenured faculty members, the
chairperson of the department
and the dean.
The faculty manual states
that approval hinges on the
applicant's demonstrated profes-
sional competence, research and
creative activity and service, as
well as a potential for future con-
tributions and the institution's
needs and resources. It notes
that teaching is the first consid-
Both Spurling and Williams
suggested the underlying cause
for the denial of tenure was
preexisting animosity between
Kauffmann and Toppen.
"Toppen and the department
chair had conflicts Spurling
Kauffman said by e-mail
he is not allowed to comment
on a specific tenure case, but
he did note that tenure is an
unbiased process.
"Tenure is a fair and balanced
system that individuals choose to
pursue said Kauffmann.
"There are no surprises in it,
and the expectations are clear
and known
Spurling and Williams
said students and parents
are writing letters to the vice
chancellor, who is in charge
of appeals in tenure decisions,
in hopes the decision will
be reversed.

SANFORD, NC - A feud ended with a

Cherry Branch ferry accident
HAVELOCK, NC - A Coast Guard
investigation has started into the
cause of the crash that will close
the Cherry Branch ferry for at least
10 days and change travel plans
for the estimated 1,000 drivers who
use the ferry each day to cross the
Neuse River
The crash, in which the ferry MV
Neuse rammed into its loading ramp
at almost full cruising speed, resulted
in no injuries to the 29 people aboard
or to the vessel, Jerry Gaskill, NC Ferry
System director, said Monday.
The ramp and boom, which supports
a hydraulic system for the ramp lift,
sustained damage that could cost
more than $100,000 and take as
long as three weeks to repair, he said.
Passengers waited aboard the ferry
nearly three hours to get off.
Gaskill said he spoke with those in
each of the 15 vehicles aboard as
they departed and urged occupants
to report any damage.
Capt Roger Resor was operating the
ferry when it hit the ramp at about seven
knots, the same speed he entered the
harbor, Gaskill said.
Gaskill said no problems were cited
in the vessel's annual inspection on
Sept. 11.
The free ferry crosses the Neuse
River between Minnesott Beach
in Pamlico County and Cherry
Branch in Craven County, making
22 departures from each location
Among the vehicles on the ferry
were five horse trailers destined for
an equestrian event at Pine Cliffs,
about a mile from the Cherry Branch
Ferry dock.
Scott Peterson's parents
testify, officer questioned
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - Prosecutors
have suggested that Scott Peterson
was preparing to flee after he was
arrested with nearly $15,000 in cash,
but Peterson's mother tried to explain
the wad of money while testifying in
her son's defense.
Jackie Peterson, who suffers from
a lung ailment, spoke softly during
Monday's murder trial and explained
to defense lawyers that another son
was going to buy Scott Peterson's
pickup truck and that she was loaning
him the money.
She said she withdrew $10,000 from
a bank account to pay Scott but
later realized the bank withdrew the
money from Scott Peterson's own
account, one on which her name
also appeared.
Jackie Peterson said that on April 17,
a day before Peterson's arrest near
his parents' home in San Diego,
she gave him back the $10,000
she accidentally withdrew from his
account, and that was why Scott
was carrying so much cash when he
was arrested, defense lawyer Mark
Geragos suggested.
Geragos also questioned Modesto
police to imply that burglars who
robbed the home of one of the
Petersons' neighbors around the time
Laci vanished may also have been
involved in her death.
Along with the cash found in
Peterson's car, police discovered
camping equipment, several changes
of clothes, four cell phones and
two driver's licenses - his and his
brother's. He had also changed his
hair color.
FCC clears Cingular
acquisition of AT&T Wireless
WASHINGTON - The Federal
Communications Commission gave
its approval Tuesday to Cingular
Wireless LLC's $41 billion acquisition
of AT&T Wireless Services Inc
completing the federal regulatory
blessing necessary for creation of
the country's'largest cell phone
The move follows Monday's
announcement that Justice
Department antitrust regulators
approved the deal. Both agencies
attached conditions to ensure there
is adequate competition in different
"We believe our conditions, combined
with the benefits to the consumer
experience brought by Cingular's
new scale and scope, will ensure
the public interest is served by this
transaction said FCC Chairman
Michael Powell.
The two Democrats on the five-
member commission dissented in
part to the merger, saying they're
concerned it will harm competition.
"In many major in-region markets,
Cingular now will have almost half
of the mobile wireless market share.
And in allowing the acquisition of
AT&T Wireless, we permanently
remove an independent source of
competition to Cingular, SBC and
BellSouth Commissioner Jonathan
Adelstein said.
The merger would give Atlanta-
based Cingular about 47.6 million
subscribers. That would top Verizon
Wireless, the current market leader
with 40.4 million customers as of
midyear, while paring the number of
national cell phone providers to five.
Under the FCC plan, the companies
will not be allowed to merge in 16
markets and must divest themselves
of assets in six additional markets.
The companies must meet conditions
set by both agencies for the deal to go
through. A judge also still must sign
off on the deal.
Karzal winner In
Afghan presidential vote
KABUL, Afghanistan - Counting in
Afghanistan's presidential election

interim leader Hamid Karzai the clear
winner, a senior official said.
Investigators were still examining
about 100 ballot boxes to clear up
lingering fraud allegations, but the
election's chief technical officer said
the count was effectively over and
"It's just these last dribs and drabs to

Election officials have said they will
not announce the official results of
the Oct. 9 vote until investigations
into irregularities alleged by Karzai's
main rivals have been concluded.
That could be this weekend.
The winner will be inaugurated in
about a month.
Final results were not posted on the
election Web site, either.
In an earlier tally based on 97.7
percent of total votes cast, the U.S
backed Karzai had 55.4 percent,
which was 39 percentage points
ahead of his closest challenger,
former Education Minister Yunus
Karzai had to receive more than 50
percent of the votes cast to avoid a
run-off and secure a five-year term.
He has pledged to raise impoverished

U.S. air strike
kills al-Zarqawl aide
BAGHDAD, Iraq - A U.S. air strike in

Bowles adds $1.8 million for senate race zero
from page A1
RALEIGH, NC (AP) � Demo-
crat Erskine Bowles has loaned
his U.S. Senate campaign an
additional $1.8 million to light
up the television airwaves in his
neck-and-neck race with Repub-
lican Richard Burr.
The Bowles campaign, which
disclosed the new loan to The
Associated Press on Monday, said
the former White House chief
of staff needed the cash influx
to run more TV ads in the final
days of one of the nation's most
expensive congressional races.
Bowles loaned his campaign
nearly $7 million in an unsuc-
cessful 2002 Senate bid against
Republican Elizabeth Dole.
Most of that money has never
been repaid.
This time around, he has
relied less on his personal for-
tune, taking only one $767,012
loan in June and another of
$790,000 earlier this month.
Bowles has worked to hold his
own with Burr in fund-raising.
"Erskine has been extremely
successful to raise the funds to
run a successful campaign said
Susan I.agana, Bowles' commu-
nication director. "But he is up
against an opponent who has
broken the bank when it comes
to special interest money
Burr has been one of the
top congressional recipients
of political action committee
money, receiving more than
$2 million during this year's
election cycle.
Bowles and national Demo-
crats have hammered Burr for
those donations, alleging in a
series of TV commercials that
they have swayed his votes on
key issues during his 10 years in
the U.S. House.
While Bowles also has taken
PAC money, it is about one-third
of what Burr has accumulated.
"Erskine is willing to put in
his own money Lagana said.
"He's not beholden to any of
these groups coming in
Burr campaign spokesman
Doug Heye called the loan a
desperate attempt to win voters
who have already rejected him
once. Burr has been aggressive
in fund raising because he knew
Bowles would spend his own
money at the end, according to
The two campaigns entered
October even in the polls and
with about the same amount of
money in the bank at roughly
$1.3 million.
Each campaign has received
$8.1 million apiece in contribu-
tions through the end of Septem-
ber. But Burr held an overall edge
in fund raising, taking in about
$11 million to Bowles' $9 million
through Sept. 30, in part because
Burr last year transferred in more
than $1.6 million from his House
campaign coffers.
The Bowles campaign has
sent a loan notice to the Fed-
eral Elections Commission,
Lagana said.
Both candidates have ben-
efited from third-party ads in
the race, including national
Democratic and Republican
senatorial committees that see
the race as one that could tip the
power in the Senate for the next
two years.

Housing Services reminded stu-
dents to comply with all policies
around campus.
Olszewska said there have
been fewer cases of substance
abuse on campus this year than
expected indicating the cam-
paign may be having an effect.
"Housing advertised
heavily about the policy. They
set up a web page, all the
RAs had to announce it during
their first hall meetings, so
everyone knew about this policy
Olszewska said.
Campus Living has also just
released an interactive CD-ROM
to all students at ECU enti-
tled EMPOWERED: Illuminating
Campus Safety. The CD is meant
to inform people about various
safety issues on campus includ-
ing personal safety, fire safety
and the zero tolerance policy.
In addition to various com-
mentaries by students and Carrie
Moore, vice chancellor for stu-
dent life, the CD lists the rules
and regulations residents must
follow in order to maintain a safe
environment on campus.
Some students don't think
the new policy will accomplish
anything in regard to catching
people who use illegal drugs.
Josh Moore, sophomore unde-
cided major, said he does not see
the reasoning behind it.
"I think it's pointless because
people will do what they want
to anyway. The more people
that do it, the less likely it is
any one person will be caught
said Moore.

Powell urges to resume talks, South Korea comes out of high alert
Colin Powell held a joint press conference with South Korean
Foreign Minister Banki-moon on Tuesday in Seoul, South Korea.
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) �
Secretary of State Colin Powell
urged North Korea on Tuesday
to rejoin nuclear disarmament
talks if it wants international aid,
while South Korea ended a high
alert triggered by holes cut into
a border fence.
South Korea, meanwhile,
called on Washington and other
participants in six-nation talks to
show more flexibility in resolving
the nuclear standoff - comments
that appeared to distance Seoul
from U.S. proposals.
Foreign Minister Ban Ki-
moon urged all participating
countries in the six-nation talks
to make more creative and real-
istic proposals to help bring
North Korea to the talks as soon
as possible.
Powell said Washington has
no intention of changing its North
Korea policy soon, but would work
to resolve the nuclear dispute.
"We agreed to continue
devoting maximum efforts to
achieving this goal through
multilateral diplomacy and six-
party talks Powell said in a joint
news conference with the South
Korean foreign minister.
"Clearly, everybody wants to
see the next round of six-party
talks get started Powell said,
referring to the stalled talks
among the United States, the
two Koreas, China, Japan and
Russia. "This is the time to move
forward, to bring this matter to
a conclusion
He said the goal was to help
the people of impoverished North
Korea have a better life, in part by
providing more food aid.
"We don't intend to attack
North Korea, we don't have any
hostile intent notwithstanding
their claims he said.
"It is this nuclear issue that
is keeping the international

Pakistan rejects solution
for Kashmir problem
from page A1
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP)
� Pakistan's opposition rejected
a formula proposed by the coun-
try's president for solving the lin-
gering issue of Kashmir, saying
on Tuesday they will never
allow him to change the status
of Kashmir against the wishes
of its people.
However, a prominent
separatist leader in India's por-
tion of the Himalayan region
said he welcomed the develop-
The Pakistani opposition's
reaction came a day after Presi-
dent Gen. Pervez Musharraf
told journalists in Islamabad
that Pakistan and India must
consider changing their posi-
tions on Kashmir to settle a
decades-old dispute over the
Himalayan region. Both nations
claim the Himalayan region in
its entirety.
"We have arrived at a stage
where we have to consider
options in a purposeful manner
going toward a solution Mush-
arraf said Monday.
He said New Delhi and Islam-
abad should consider making
some areas of Kashmir indepen-
dent, placing them under joint
Indian-Pakistani control, or put-
ting them under the administra-
tion of the United Nations.
Musharraf conditioned his
comments on a demilitariza-
tion of the region, where both
countries have hundreds of thou-
sands of troops. Such a stand-
down before a final solution is
considered unlikely.
Musharraf's remarks drew
criticism in Pakistan from oppo-
sition groups, who accused him
of offering too much.
"I don't think Musharraf's
proposal is in the interest of Paki-
stan and the Kashmiris said
Raja Zafarul Haq, a senior leader
of the Alliance for the Restora-
tion of Democracy, a 15-party
opposition coalition.
"Such formulas are an insult
to the sacrifices of Kashmiris
said Haq, who is also chairman
of the Pakistan Muslim League-
N party, whose government was
ousted by Musharraf in a blood-
less coup in 1999.
Haq said he did not
think India would accept the
new terms.
"India has long said that
Kashmir is an integral part of
their country, and I don't think
they are going to change their
stance he said.
There was no immediate
reaction from New Delhi.
In India's part of Kashmir,
Abdul Ghani Bhat, a promi-
nent separatist leader, welcomed
Musharraf's proposals.
"All of us will have to rise
above traditional positions.
These proposals will have to
address the sensibilities of all
three parties and they need
to be looked into fairly, intel-
ligently and imaginatively
he told The Associated Press in
Srinagar, Jammu-Kashmir state's
summer capital.
Kashmir, a former princely
state, has been the flashpoint
of two wars between India and
Pakistan since it was divided
following the partition of the
subcontinent by Britain at inde-
pendence in 1947.
Pakistan and India in recent
months have held a series of
confidence-building talks on less
contentious issues, but they have
not yet started negotiations on
Kashmir. Senior Pakistani and
Indian officials are scheduled to
hold another round of talks later
this year.

forces since 1989. The insur-
gency has claimed more than

people don't talk about it because
of stigma and don't know
what to do about it Ames said.
"It's a support program for
communities that are there to
address the problem of drug
abuse said Tovey.
Tovey said she and her gradu-
ate assistants, Pierre Holloman
and Maria Vinson, organized a
project in order to receive the
grant. They met with Ames
and had several brainstorming
sessions in making the project
in order to ensure they had an
appropriate specified project in
line for the particular grant.
"Most grant agencies are
particular in what they want to
fund Tovey said.
"You must show there is a
need for the program, as well as
have an organized program
After Ames revised the final
proposal, they sent it off and it
received acceptance.
The project will require many
levels of commitment from the
county and people involved.
Ames said they are in the pro-
cess of selecting an executive
director of the program, whose
salary would come from
the grant.
Ames said he feels society
needs to give more support
to drug addicts and work
with them more to help them
overcome their problems
rather than enact punishment
without explanation.
"Simply jailing the person
or kicking them out of school
doesn't help Ames said.

North Korea
U.S. officials believe North
Korea is biding its time on six-
party talks, sensing that Demo-
cratic candidate John Kerry
might win the election and be
easier to deal with than Bush.
Powell, who was in Seoul fol-
lowing visits this week to Japan
and China, also met Tuesday
with South Korean President Roh
Moo-hyun and South Korea's
unification minister.
Powell predicted that North
Korea would return to the talks
after next week's U.S. election,
South Korean officials said.
Meanwhile, South Korea said
that two mysterious holes found
on the wire fence on the tense
border with North Korea were
most likely used not by commu-
nist infiltrators but by a South
Korean defector to the North. It
ordered its troops to stand down
from a high alert.
About 60 miles north of Seoul,
South Korean border guards had
earlier found two holes in a wire
fence at the buffer zone that has
separated the two Koreas since
their 1950-53 war. The conflict
ended in a cease-fire, not a peace
treaty, and the two Koreas remain
technically at war.
The highly unusual discovery
of the holes, found on the fence
checked daily by troops for signs
of infiltration, had triggered fears
of North Korean commandoes
slipping through the border and
led South Korea to tighten road-
blocks and traffic checks north
of Seoul.
"After investigating the way
the fence was cut and the foot
prints in the scene, we have
concluded that an unidentified
person crossed into the north
said Brig. Gen. Hwang Joong-
sun, an operational officer of the
South Korean military.
PATTANI, Thailand (AP)
� At least 78 people were suf-
focated or crushed to death after
being arrested and packed into
police trucks following a riot
in southern Thailand over the
detentions of Muslims suspected
of giving weapons to Islamic sep-
aratists, officials said Tuesday. Six
others were shot to death during
the demonstration.
Islamic leaders accused
Thai troops of overreacting to
the police station protest in
Narathiwat province in Thai-
land's Muslim-dominated
south. They also warned it
could trigger a spiraling upswing
in violence.
"I am in shock Abdulra-
man Abdulsamad, chairman of
the Islamic Council of Narathi-
wat, told The Associated Press.
"I cannot say what is going to
happen, but I believe that hell
will break out
The 78 dead were among
some 1,300 people arrested after
the riot.
Dr. Pornthip Rojanasunan,
a forensics expert for the Justice
Ministry, said Tuesday that she
and other doctors conducted
autopsies on the 78 bodies at
an army camp in Pattani prov-
ince and found that most died
from suffocation.
Maj. Gen. Sinchai Nujsa-
thit, deputy commander of the
fourth army, said the victims
may have died from suffocation
"because we had more than
1,300 people packed into the
six-wheel trucks
He did not say how many
trucks were used.
Manit Suthaporn, deputy
permanent secretary of the Jus-
tice Ministry, said the victims
probably suffocated because they
were piled on top of each other
in the vehicles.
The violence began Monday
when about 2,000 Muslim
youths demonstrated outside
the police station in Takbai
district, demanding the release

suffocated and crushed to death after police arrested and pushed them into vans.
of six men held on suspicion of
stealing state-issued weapons
and giving them to Islamic sepa-
ratists. The crowd threw rocks,
overturned a military truck and
made several attempts to storm
the police station and a nearby
government office.
Police and military forces
tried to disperse the crowd
with gunshots, water cannons
and tear gas. Six people were
killed and several injured in
the melee, army commander
Gen. Pisarn Wattanawongkhiri
said Tuesday.
More than 360 people have
been killed in southern Thai-
land since January, mostly in
small bombings and drive-by
shootings directed at police and
government officials. Authorities
blame the violence on a renewed
Islamic separatist insurgency.
Violence has troubled over-
whelmingly Buddhist Thailand's
three Muslim-majority provinces
for decades, although it has wors-
ened this year. Residents claim
they are discriminated against by
the central government.
The toll of 84 dead from
Monday's violence was the larg-
est from a single incident since
April, when police and soldiers
responded with overwhelming
force to attacks by alleged Islamic
militants armed mostly with
machetes, killing 107.
Prime Minister Thaksin
Shinawatra visited the south-
ern region briefly late Monday,
where he praised the security
forces and vowed tough action
against suspected Islamic sepa-
"The protesters had several
motives, but the main reason was
separatism Thaksin said, speak-
ing before the announcement
of the 78 suffocation deaths. "I
cannot allow the separatists to
exist on our land
He added: "We cannot allow
fhese people to harass inno-
cent people and authorities any
longer We have no choice but
to use force to suppress them
At the Inkayut military camp
where prisoners were being held,
people came all day Tuesday
to report missing family mem-
bers who might be among the
detained. They were not allowed
in the camp but registered at the
gate, and several dozen families
stayed nearby all day, waiting
for news.
Authorities announced a
curfew in parts of Narathiwat
"because the situation is still
volatile Thaksin said.
Neighboring Malaysia, a
Muslim-dominated country,
expressed concern over the
"Thailand is a close neighbor.
Any incident will be watched
closely here. We are sad that
there has been an accident"
leading to deaths, Malaysian For-
eign Minister Syed Hamid Albar
said. "We want to know exactly

Our View
"Research the candidates and chose the
one whose issues most directly agree with
This phrase has been printed in so many "Our
View" columns, it's almost become redundant
However, TEC feels that with election day less
than a week away, it's important we stress it
However, instead of merely emphasizing that
you decide on your own, we have taken into
consideration many students are quick to
listen to false information passed on to them
from friends and family, rather than make their
decisions for themselves.
Recognizing a student's busy class and social
schedule, TEC has compiled a quick list of key
issues for George Bush and John Kerry. It is
our hope that you can take a few minutes out
of your day to read this list and decide if the
candidate you plan on voting for is truly the
man you want to be our next president.
Without further ado, here is the list:
General Information: Bush is a Republican,
while Kerry is a Democrat. Both have held
elected offices and both served in the military.
Abortion: Bush strongly favors appointing
judges who will outlaw abortions, outlawing
"partial birth" abortions, outlawing abortions
except in cases of rapeincest and requiring
parental notification for minors under 18. Kerry
strongly opposes the above four abortion
Gay Rights: Bush strongly favors the con-
stitutional gay marriage ban and is strongly
opposed to allowing gays to openly serve
in the military. Kerry somewhat opposes the
constitutional gay marriage ban and strongly
favors allowing gays to serve in the military.
Gun Control: Kerry strongly favors back-
ground checks on gun show purchases, while
Bush is somewhat opposed to the issue.
Death Penalty: Both candidates strongly
oppose abolishing the death penalty, with
Kerry favoring a national review of death
penalty fairness (Bush is strongly opposed
to the issue).
Iraq: Kerry somewhat opposes the war In
Iraq, with Bush strongly favoring the war. Both
candidates strongly oppose the immediate
withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq.

candidate's stances on the issues.

Opinion Columnist
Is receiving no news good news?
Lack of feedback a
response in itself
I have to admit it. I was feeling a
little jealous about a week ago.
It all started after 1 read Peter Kal-
ajian's opinion about the Confederate
Flag. Since 1 read this particular piece
on T�C's Web site, 1 couldn't help but
notice the number of responses that
had been posted in regards to Peter's
opinion - at my last count, there were
I clicked on some of my past opin-
ions and articles and counted only a
handful of responses directed toward
me. I savored the reading of each
one - it felt like opening gifts on Christ-
mas morning. I know that sounds
cliche, but it's so exciting to get feedback
from people who have read your
thoughts and words. It is just that little
reassurance that you aren't sending
your journalistic endeavors out into a
black hole. Someone is actually read-
ing what you have written and they
feel moved enough by it to let you
One of my roommates loyally
tacks a clipping of my column to the
refrigerator each week and my parents
regularly send me accolades via e-mail.
Sure, it's nice to have their encourage-
ment, but she's my friend and they're
my parents. Isn't supporting me part of
the job description?
When 1 compared the number of
responses I had received with those
sent to Peter, Tony McKee or Eric
Gilmore, I felt like I was losing a
competition I had never intended to
enter. It made me wonder if anyone,
besides the five or so respondents and
my close friends and family, is reading
my words.
Of course 1 don't write these pieces
for any potential fame or praise from
others. I write them only because I
want to write. It's what I like to do and
I'm fortunate that someone has given
me the opportunity to publish what I
produce each week.
Yet I still hope when I see someone
pick up a copy of TEC, they will turn to
the opinion page, read my words and
think about what I've said. Maybe it
will mean something to them. I hope
it will entertain them, cause them to
reflect on an idea or simply allow them
to take a break from their hectic life and
spend a few minutes with something
less stressful.
Even if they read it, it's doubtful
they will post any online feedback just
to say how they relate to my sentiments.
When 1 don't write anything especially
controversial 1 guess I can't expect to
get a response.
It's true of editorial pieces and it's
true of life. So often, people are quick
to respond to the negative. Inflamma-
tory opinions get reactions, just as bad
service in a restaurant or store does. A
customer is much more likely to com-
plain about a bad employee than to
praise one who did a good job. Unlike
poor service, these controversial opin-
ions do have their place - I'm just not
one to write them.
Issues are rarely black or white
- there is just too much gray area
that can't be ignored. Depending on
your background, your station in life
or any number of experiences you've
had, your opinion will differ ever so
slightly or significantly from mine.
Recognizing this, I just don't want to
rock the boat and tell you that you're
wrong and I'm right. After all, that may
not be true.
However, because I'm not doing
that in this particular column or any
other I have written or probably will
write, I don't expect that you'll respond
to me on the newspaper's Web site. Still,
I long for the day when I see a long list
of messages in regards to something I
have authored.
Until then, I am reminded of
another old familiar cliche that says
something about the squeaky wheel
getting the grease. It may not be fair
and it certainly is frustrating but it's
definitely applicable.
Even so, I have a challenge for
any of the five or ten people that read
this. I'm not begging you to post any
feedback - I'm just asking that in your
own life, you make a concerted effort
to affirm others at least as much as
society seems to put them down. It
may be harder to do and take some
serious effort but I'm encouraging you
to do something which I am working
on myself. Besides, I think we're all up
to the challenge.
In My Opinion
Statistics don't tell whole story of voters
(KRT) � Something might be hard
to find at voting booths Nov. 2. Hang-
ing chads, perhaps?
It may be young Asian Americans.
Asian Americans between the ages
of 18 and 24 have the lowest rate of
voter registration among minority
groups in the nation, according to
Asian St Pacific Islander American Vote
2004. APIA Vote 2004 (www.apiavote.
org) is a national coalition of nonpar-
tisan, nonprofit groups that work to
engage more in the Asian and Pacific
Islander communities into the politi-
cal process.
Moreover, only 34 percent of young
Asian-American citizens voted in the
2000 presidential election, accord-
ing to The Center for Information
and Research on Civic Learning and
Engagement. Do Asian Americans ste-
reotypically only care about academics
and the perfect job?
Not from my experience.
Don't let such statistics fool you
into thinking that young Asian Ameri-
cans are politically apathetic.
Most of my Asian-American friends
plan to vote. And if the University of
Washington campus is any microcos-
mic indicator of the state at large, then
young Asian Americans care about
the political process and the issues at
They speak out in student senate
meetings and hold elected positions.
Outside of school, they're active in civil
rights and cultural organizations.
And once they do register to vote,
many actually act to make change.
Young Asian Americans had a higher
voter turnout than any other minority
group in the 2000 presidential election,
according to APIA Vote 2004.
Of course, like the general youth
population, the attitude toward voting
ranges among some young Asian
Americans who I informally polled.
Some have been thinking about their
candidates of choice for months; some
don't even know how to register; many
don't care.
Young Asian Americans aren't a
homogenous group of apathetic non-
So, how do you explain the sta-
tistics? Many factors need to be con-
sidered. First, many Asian Americans
simply aren't eligible to vote. Accord-
ing to APIA Vote 2004, two-thirds of
Asian Americans are foreign born. In
Washington state, there are 453,000
Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders,
but only one-third of them are eligible
to vote.
Secondly, past family experiences
may have led others to distrust the
political system in general. According
to some academics, many immigrants
came to the United States to flee politi-
cal persecution at home. Young people
who grew up in such households might
hold a more skeptical perspective on
the political system.
And others might have grown up
in households where politics never
entered everyday conversation.
Of course, there's no excuse for
a low percentage of registered voters
among citizens. Especially not when,
according to the 2000 Census, Asian
Americans make up 5.5 percent of the
state population. That's 2 percent more
than the national averagev And the
numbers are rising.
Precious political influence is being
wasted without voter registration and
actual voting.
But these numbers shouldn't lead
one to assume that all young Asian
Americans are politically apathetic.
The sheer fact that some young
Asian Americans are trying to change
these numbers reveals their concern
and investment in civic participation.
Yes, the numbers need to rise, but
one shouldn't be too quick to assume
that all young Asian Americans don't

Aries: Where will you get the
money to achieve the quality
you imagine? Don't have a tizzy;
the opportunity will present itself
soon. Offer your services.
Taurus: You're getting stronger
and more determined over
the next few days. One of your
talismans must be the bulldog.
When you latch on, you don't let go.
Gemini: There's a fight brewing,
but try not to get emotionally
involved. Step back, and look at
the bigger picture when deciding
which side to support. There's an
awful lot at stake.
Cancer. There's one hassle after
another, and none of them are
your fault. So why should you have
to deal with them? Because you're
so good at itl
Leo: You're smart and creative,
but that won't be enough. If you
also take on responsibility for
your actions and for others, you
could rise into a well-deserved
leadership position. Now is a
good time to practice.
Virgo: There are a few more
touchy subjects to deal with
before you can relax. Schedule a
break for yourself tomorrow and
even more on the next day.
Libra: Quick action leads you
to make a discovery that could
change your attitude. Make plans
carefully, and you can achieve more
than you ever thought possible.
Scorpio: You're not in the battle
all by yourself even though it may
seem that way. Form an alliance
with somebody who can provide
the stability you lack.
Sagittarius: It's just about time to
get back to work. A creative friend
may inspire you to try something
you thought only others could do.
Your expertise is expanding.
Capricorn: The wonders never
seem to cease. Just about when
you're ready to quit, the difficulty
finally gets resolved due to a new
discovery. And you had it all the time.
Aquarius: You may be just about
worn out by now. Don't make big
plans for tonight. You're wiser to
stay close to home. Go to bed
early and recuperate.
Pisces: The odds are pretty high
that you'll learn a lesson the hard
way and soon. Be respectful and
attentive, hold onto your money
and your odds of success improve.
Horror movies arrive with Halloween
Films that provide
extreme scares
Horror movies have the abil-
ity to frighten and terrify the
bravest person. Able to suspend
belief, people watch scary movies
to evoke fear. From disturbing
cult favorites to the latest teen
slasher film, memories from our
favorite (or scariest) movie flood
our nightmares and are able
to scare us just as strongly the
tenth time as it did the first. It is
natural to enjoy a good scare once
in awhile, what horror movies
encourage is the greatest fright.
During Halloween, horror
movies are particularly appeal-
ing for individuals seeking quick
thrills. Within the genre, different
types of films are made in order to
appeal to the widest audience pos-
sible. Horror can have elements of
suspense in them, such as Se7en,
or science fiction, like Alien.
Ranging from slasher themes to
monster themes, scary movies
reach a diverse range of tastes.
Josh Parker, a freshman politi-
cal science major, finds horror
movies to be rather fascinating.
"I enjoy movies such as Friday
the 13th, that had realistic ele-
ments. It marked the re-birth of
horror movies said Parker.
Movies such as Friday the 13th
came on the scene thanks to the
popularity of the 1978 horror
classic Halloween. The plot was
simple: masked killer goes after
promiscuous teens. The budget
was small and the acting was
mediocre, but audiences flocked
to see this new film. Made on
less than $325,000, Halloween
went on to gross $47 million in
the United States. With this new
demand, studios began turning
out horror movies in mass.
Not since the 1920s and 1930s
have horror movies enjoyed
such popularity. Even today,
films such as Nosferatu and Bride
of Frankenstein are considered
classics and are watched and
respected today.
Since the first horror film
Le Manoir Du Diable was made
in 1896, scary movies have
remained a staple on cinema. It
was during the 1960s that master
storyteller and legendary film
director Alfred Hitchcock offered
a new type of film. Suspenseful
and thrilling, Hitchcock's films
were a precursor to the slasher
films of the late 1970s. Psycho
left a generation of women fear-
ing the shower and is considered
to be one of the greatest horror
Movies such as Psycho opened
doors for movies that put less
emphasis on blood and gore and
relied on intelligent suspense to
move the film. Thrillers such
as Silence of the Lambs and Jaws
have gone on to acquire critical
acclaim and box office success.
They offer an alternative for the
squeamish, who may prefer sus-
penseful scares to gory B-movies.
"I prefer M. Night Shyamalan
thrillers like Signs. They don't
have a high body count, but still
build up a lot of scares said
freshman musical theatre major
Amina Edmonson.
The success of these films
show a new demand for what
horror audiences want. A well-
thought script that still provides
scares will leave a lasting impres-
sion on audiences and critics.
Contrasting to the earlier
horror films, many movies now
have large budgets and use the
latest special effects.
"Movies like John Carpen-
ter's The Thing have great special
effects and a good story Parker
Movies such as The Exorcist
used great effects and an inter-
esting screenplay to make one of
the highest grossing movies of
all time. Based on a true story,
The Exorcist made $292.7 million
and earned 10 Oscar nomina-

Although, the most antici-
pated "Simpson's Halloween

movie version of The X-Files.
AMC, channel 51 is hosting a

tions. It sparked a new interest
in the paranormal influenced
movies such as The Omen. These
movies proved that horror isn't
just limited to high death counts
and killing people off in creative
Unfortunately, many of these
smart and original films are
tarnished by the multitude of
sequels looking to cash-out by
using the name and success of
the original. Great movies such
as Halloween have spawned seven
sequels. Friday the 13th used their
killer Jason in 10 movies after
the original came out in 1980.
Perhaps this cheapening mass
market effect can explain why
the majority of critics abhor the
horror genre.
When A Nightmare on Elm
Street came out, it was hailed
as a creative and ingenious
film. With the success of the
first, came an additional six
within the next 10 years. The
franchise grossed $188,884,750
in the United States alone.
While it can be said that
many of these films are poorly
put together, you can't deny the
success. So popular are horror
movies, that they proved to be
inspiration for spoof blockbusters
such as Scary Movie.
"Most people are familiar
with the formula horror movies
provide, even if they don't watch
them, that they can understand

With Halloween just days
away, television stations start
flooding the channels with the
typical "scary Freddy" reruns to
put you in the ghoulish spirit.
Many of you will also get in
your cars late at night to drive
past the abandoned houses,
search through a haunted house
or even take your chances in a
If you are still looking for
something to "really scare you"
though, you should head over to
the Carmike 12 off of Fire Tower
Road to see the independent film
titled Malevolence.
Only playing in select cities,
Malevolence is a film that brings
back the "classic horror" found
In your other- loved horror films.
Malevolence was written, directed,
produced and budgeted by Stevan
Mena and was shot in Pennsyl-
vania woods in 2002. Staring
Brandon Johnson and Samantha
Dark, Malevolence won Best Fea-
ture at NYC Horror Film Festival
and Best 35mm Feature at the
Long Island Film Festival.
Malevolence is a story about
a group of bank robbers who
are hiding from the law in an
abandoned house, unaware that
there is a family of serial killers
in the next house. They find out
quickly however, when one of the
bank robbers runs into the wrong
house by accident.
Be prepared for some blood,
some twists and plenty of scares.
Malevolence will not leave your
nerves disappointed.
Critics claim Malevolence
will have you squirming, jolting
and jumping out of your chairs,
grabbing on to your neighbor for
support and shutting your eyes
with fright. And this isn't for the
"horror flick rookies Even the
toughest horror critics from top
film review sites like Entertain-
ment Insiders,
and have said
this film will even shock and
scare the most weathered horror
fanatics out there.
Critics from Film Threat hail
that Malevolence "is relentless in
its pursuit to frighten the heck
out of you, and it succeeds. By cre-
ating a killer that is so demented,
yet human, Mena has also refined
the modern horror tale by rid-
ding it of all the superfluous
teenaged sex romps and alcohol
induced dream sequences. This
film is pure terror, pure unadul-
terated fear
The low-budget did not stop
Mena from producing a quality
film that spends much of its time
referring to other horror classics
to get you in the Halloween spirit.
So if you've got some free time
and a few companions willing to
be scared, it will be worth your
while to go see Malevolence. Just
make sure to go to the bathroom
before the show, and don't be
afraid to scream. It's inevitable.

Book Review: 'Misery' Good horror movie to welcome holiday
always loves company
Chilling, thrilling novel
perfect for spooky night
As one reviewer states, "It is
a spine-tingling thriller you'll
never put down
This fictitious novel opens
with a well-known and best sell-
ing author, Paul Sheldon, getting
into a horrific car accident during
a harsh blizzard. Annie Wiikes
comes along, recognizes him as
Paul and rescues him. She takes
him to her home nearby in the
wilderness. Paul wakes up days
later in an unfamiliar house. He
discovers his legs have been shat-
tered from the accident. Annie
Wiikes introduces herself as
Paul's number one fan, and also
states that she is a nurse who is
taking care of him. At first, Paul
is very grateful to her for saving
his life and for her help.
But, when Annie discovers, by
reading Paul's manuscripts, that
he is going to kill off her favorite
character, Misery from his books,
Annie forcefully demands that Paul
rewrite his manuscripts in order
to have Misery live. Annie turns
into a manipulative, psychotic
lunatic. She keeps Paul impris-
oned in her house by keeping him
restrained and by use of torture.
This novel is slow and may be
psychologically draining, but it
hits readers with the vivid descrip-
tions of the violence, the writing
style and the several large themes
that are implied in the story. The
novel gives the sense of isolation
and desperation because it only
has two characters placed in a
house in the middle of a harsh
winter wilderness. Readers can feel
the sheer terror from Paul because
they are taken into the very
thoughts and dreams of his mind.
It has a very chilling effect.
Not for the light- hearted. Great
for Halloween and has a happy

Viewers begin to sympathize
with the creature as they discover
new things in the film and begin
to understand the creature's
attraction to Kay.
"This film is definitely a

Frank Wllkins.
Despite being a B-movie, it is
highly entertaining. It is said that

It is charming with its historical
appeal and the sense of nostalgia

Don't let'Grudge'
sneak up on you
With Halloween around the
corner, a good suspensehorror
film is a must. Last year, The Ring,
Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and
zombie films, such as 28 Days
Later, kept us on the edge of our
seats. The Grudge looks like it will
fill the shoes of last year's scary
movie bunch.
The Grudge, which opened
Friday, Oct. 22, was directed by a
Japanese director named Takashi
Shimizu. Shimizu was also the
director of the original Japanese
version, IV-ON: the Grudge, and
decided to make an English lan-
guage version. It was written by
Stephen Susco and Sam Raimi.
"Original 'JU-ON' director,
Shimizu, helms this remake,
which looks slick, mysterious,
and terrifying said Ryan Kelley,
a movie reviewer from About,
com, who also gave the movie
four stars. The critics gave the
movie a B
The remake stars Sarah
Michelle Gellar ("Buffy the Vam-
pire Slayer Scooby Doo, I Know
What You Did Last Summer, and
Scream 2) as Karen. Bill Pullman
(Igby Goes Down and Lucky Num-
bers) plays Peter in the movie.
Clea DuVall, is the character
named Jennifer Williams, and
has played in Identity, 21 Grams,
and Helter Skelter. Jason Behr,
("Roswell Pleasantville, and
The Shipping News) is Doug in
The Grudge.
The movie is rated PG-13 due
to mature thematic material, dis-
turbing images, terror, violence
and some sensuality.
"Although it has a PG-13
rating, it still looks like it has all
the thrills of a movie with an R
rating said Andrew Hill, a senior
geography major.
"I was skeptical at first; come
on, how scary couldaPG-13movie
be? But then I am reminded of
how frightening movies like The
Others really were
The Grudge is about an Ameri-
can student who chooses to study
in Japan on a foreign exchange
program, along with her boy-
friend Doug (Behr). She works
for a social service agency in a
Japanese house that helps people
who are homebound.
There is a curse that spawned
from a grudge held by a person
who died, and it was so power-
ful that it spreads to the other
patients and nurses one by one.
The victims are killed by this
rage, but when they die, the
grudge lives on. Those who
encounter this supernatural fatal
curse die and a new one is born.
This grudge acts like a virus that
unfolds a chain of terror in a
quiet town.
Unlike Kelley, another movie
reviewer, Rebecca Murray also
from, said, "What it
all boils down to is The Grudge
feels flat. There are definitely
frightening moments, but a
little boy hissing like a cat and a
repeated clicking noise didn't do
it for me this time around. The
Grudge quickly bogs down with
too many characters thrown into
the mix and not enough scare to
sustain a good fright She gave
the movie a C
As for the previews, students
are still excited to see this horror
film. Two showings were sold
out on the opening night at the
Carmike 12 in Greenville.
"The previews leave enough
to the imagination, so I think
it won't be a corny, predictable
scary movie said Brooke Hill, a
junior marketing major.

ss Men's Rugby team clinches
Foster done
for season
The Carolina Panthers lost any
hope of DeShaun Foster playing
again this season when it was
determined Monday the running
back needs surgery on his broken
collarbone. Foster, who missed
his entire rookie season with a
knee injury before becoming an
outstanding backup to Stephen
Davis last year, was placed on
injured reserve. The Panthers are
critically short at running back.
Davis missed his fourth game of
the season Sunday with a knee
injury and No. 3 back Rod Smart is
also out with a knee problem.
Fullback Brad Hoover started
Sunday against San Diego,
running for 99 yards on a career-
tying 24 carries. Fox said the
Panthers expected to fill Foster's
spot on the roster with another
running back. The team has
worked out several veteran backs,
Including Skip Hicks and Stacey
Mack. Carolina (1-5) has been
decimated by injuries this season.
Aside from the running backs,
wide receiver Steve Smith is
out with a broken leg, All-Pro
defensive tackle Kris Jenkins is
out with a shoulder injury and
linebacker Mark Fields missed
two games with back spasms.
Bears pass on Couch
The Chicago Bears will not sign
Tim Couch, instead
stick with the three quarterbacks
on their roster. Couch, the top
overall pick in the 1999 draft, had
a tryout on Friday and Saturday
with the Bears, who are 1-5 and
have lost starting quarterback
Rex Grossman for the season.
He was cut this year by both
Cleveland, for whom he played
for five seasons, and by Green
Bay. He had been bothered by
a sore arm. Jonathan Quinn and
rookie Cralg Krenzel played a
half each in Sunday's 19-7 loss
to Tampa Bay. Krenzel, in his
first NFL appearance, completed
9-of-19 passes for 69 yards and
led the Bears to their only score.
Quinn, who had a 77-yard screen
pass TD called back on the first
play, was 5-of-9 for 47 yards
after making his third straight
start. Former Dallas quarterback
Chad Hutchinson was signed
after Grossman was lost with a
season-ending knee injury in the
third game. He is still learning the
system. Smith would not say who
would start practice Wednesday
as the No. 1 quarterback, but he
did say the Bears were no longer
interested in Couch.
Trouble In Indianapolis
Peyton Manning and Reggie
Wayne kept quiet Monday. Their
Indianapolis Colts teammates
didn't think they needed to say
a word. One day after Manning
and Wayne engaged in a
shouting match near the end
of a 27-24 loss to Jacksonville,
the primary participants did not
make themselves available to
reporters, as usual. It was an
uncharacteristic distraction for a
team that won four straight games
before Sunday's loss.
Perhaps most surprising were
the players involved. Manning Is
known for his studious ways and
calm demeanor, while Wayne
has quietly emerged as one
of Manning's top targets. On
Sunday, the two Louisiana natives
were clearly irritated. Wayne and
Manning jawed briefly at each
other, facemask to facemask, and �
Wayne even shoved last year's
NFL co-MVP moments before
the offense went back onto the
field with 33 seconds left in the
game. Afterward, they appeared
to make public amends. Manning
called Wayne one of his favorite
players and said it was merely out
of frustration. Wayne denied the
Incident took place, even though it
was broadcast on television.

ECU earns trophy for
first time in eight years
Eight years have passed since
the last time ECU'S Men's Rugby
Club has won the North Carolina
State Championship. The Pirates
traveled to Danville, Va. this past
weekend and defeated three of
their closet rivals to finally cap-
ture the elusive state trophy.
In the first match of the
tournament, the young ECU
squad faced the Duke Blue Devils.
After falling behind 7-0, the team
pulled it together at halftime.
Within the first five minutes
of the second half, the Pirates
played as one unit, moving the
ball very effectively. The turning
point of the game came when
veteran winger Dave Zeckman,
kicked the ball over the line of
defense, ran onto the ball and
touched it down in the try-zone.
This magnificent play crushed
Duke's spirits and ECU continued
on to win the match by a score
of 19-7.
The Pirates' momentum from
their first win continued to work
in their favor during the second
match of the tournament. This
time, the Pirates faced UNC-
Chapel Hill, who was nationally
ranked in the preseason and the
favored team in this year tourna-
ment. The first ten minutes of the
game was a stalemate as no team
had an advantage over the other.
However, with hard hitting and
great team work as the game pro-
gressed, ECU was able to create
scoring opportunities and took
advantage of all of them.
The onslaught of opportu-
nistic scoring began when UNC
kicked the ball off to ECU. Land-
ing in Pat Canham's hands, he
broke through a few tackles, and
passed the ball down the line

of support. Eventually reach-
ing speedster Jerome Leech, the
ball was touched down in the
try-zone. Once a lead had been
built, the Pirates did not look
back and were triumphant in a
30-12 win.
Having won both their previ-
ous games, ECU was set to play in
the championship game against
a veteran NC State squad. It rep-
resented everything one should
expect out of the championship
game; fierce hitting, long offensive
drives, magnificent goal line stands
and even sudden-death overtime.
After two halves of a hard
fought battle, the score was knot-

As expected, both teams
came out firing on all cylinders.
Once again though, through
great teamwork, ECU was able
to move the ball down the field
and scored on the first chance
they had.
The game-winning play came
when senior Mark Borcherd-
ing kicked the ball forward to
a host of Pirate attackers. Ryan
Ford recovered the kick and got
tackled inches from the try-zone,
when Borcherding recovered the
ball and passed it to John Metcalf
he dove in to the try-zone scor-
ing the final points. With a final

an enormous amount of talent
and this was going to be the big
test. ECU Men's Rugby was con-
sidered the underdog in the eyes
of our opponents but we have
proven ourselves as a force in
North Carolina and I believe we
thrilled with his team's victory
after the game.
"Winning this tournament is
amazing said Hileman.
"It was some of our veterans'
last chance to play in it. To go to
the state tournament with such
a young team and win it the way
we did is incredible
The win gives the men's club
a huge boost in confidence and
in recognition. With 26 players
returning next year, Canham, a
senior this year, knows the team
will be well off in the following
years when he is done playing
at ECU.
"The outcome of this week-
end's tournament was huge for
our team said Canham.

Returnees must step up Ex-Eagles bring
Ice hockey to ECU
ECU hopes for more support than the NHL has right now.
This year's Pirates have few returning starters and a lot of inexperienced, young talent.
The Full Court Press
I'm not going to lie - football
games are fun. But nothing on
this campus compares to basket-
ball games.
The Minges Maniacs have
done an amazing job building a
fan base for the 2004-2005 ECU
Men's Basketball Team and I
believe excitement this year may
be higher than ever.
After last year, we have lost
five players due to graduation
(Derek Wiley, Eroyl Bing, Gabe
Mikulas, Luke McKay and Garth
Grindley) and two others trans-
ferred (Belton Rivers and Frank
Robinson). The players remain-
ing can't even play five on five
without a new teammate coming
onto the court and becoming the
fifth. So with that in mind, I will
only guarantee one thing for this
season. Every game, someone
who didn't attend ECU last year
will start this year.
The key to this season will be
the play of the new guys, but the
four returnees have to step up.
This includes everything from
helping coach Herrion teach
the new players Herrion's way
of playing to asking for the ball
when they're on the court. In my
opinion, and I said this a lot last
year, no one has to step up more
than Corey Rouse.
Rouse is enteririg his junior
season. A recruit from Klnston,
he has never lived up to the hype
he received out of high school.
His role was limited last year and
he didn't see much playing time.
The first and most important
thing he must do is rebound. I saw
bits and pieces of that last season
in exhibitions and non-confer-
ence games. Of course, this was
against teams with players having
the basketball ability of a senior
citizen. Eroyl Bing did all the dirty
work on the glass last year, and
Rouse must step into that role.
Secondly, Rouse must score. If
he can put up 10 to IS points a
game I would be ecstatic, but he's
going to have to do down low.
Rouse air balled around five free
throws last season, and unless he
got his touch down from the line,
he better earn those points from
about four feet away.
Thirdly, he has got to stay
out of foul trouble. A team with
six new faces isn't exactly what I
would call deep. Any time he has
to sit due to foul trouble, we have
to bring in a new guy. No matter
how good a freshman is, I would
rather have Rouse out there
simply because he has experience
in Conference USA play.
Japhet McNeil Is another
guy who has to step up. 1 really
think this team isn't danger-
ous unless Rouse and McNeil
are playing their best. McNeil
showed the potential to be
awesome last season, but more
often than not was, at best,
inconsistent on the hardwood.
At first, I felt he was going to
be a great player. He was dishing
out assists as if he got paid to
do it, but then conference play
rolled around and Mike Cook
stepped up, forcing McNeil out
of the picture. With the transfer
of Rivers and Robinson, we lost
both our starting and back-up
shooting guard. I believe Cook
will move over the shooting
guard position and McNeil will
start at the point.
McNeil must control the ball
and the pace of the game from
that number one spot. I think
many other fans were nervous
when he came in and brought
the ball up court last year.
Teams like Louisville are
going to press the absolute hell
out of him so he must remain
calm. Japhet also has to play great
defense that was the strongest
part of his game last season. Of
course, he was in a back-up role
where he was only playing 10-20
minutes a game whereas this year
he will be playing around 25-35
minutes, something he hasn't
done since high school.
Out of the 11 guys on the
team, the only two I have few
worries about are Mike Cook and
Moussa Badiane. These two have
proved themselves against every
team in C-USA.
Simply put, Cook is the man.
The reason 1 like Cook is because
the guy can just flat out ball. He's
savvy, he's smart, he has great
court vision, can shoot the rock
from almost anywhere and he
can shoot free throws. Anytime

Former teammates
bring idea to fruition
Happy Gilmore always wanted
to be a hockey player. In the 1996
classic movie, Adam Sandler's
character tried out every year
to make the local hockey team.
He never quite made it. Maybe
Gilmore should have talked to
Brent Falcon and started a club
ice hockey team.
The newest student organiza-
tion is in the preliminary stages
of forming a cohesive and com-
petitive team who will compete
against teams across the nation.
Forty-five people have already
shown interest, a staggering
number for a club team.
The club ice hockey team is
the product of ex-teammates in
Falcon, Jordan Meyers and Corey
Fleitz. The three played together
for four years as part of the East
Coast Eagles, a traveling ice
hockey team from Raleigh.
"After I stopped playing with
the Eagles, I had very few options
if I still wanted to play said
President Brent Falcon.
"You miss playing at a real
competitive level with people
your age. That's a main reason
that we are doing this
The three guys put fliers up
around campus and within days
already hadagiantamount of interest.
"With what we've heard feed-
back wise from people, a lot of
people have been waiting for this
to happen for a while Falcon said.
Eighty to 90 percent of the 45
respondents are players who have
significant travel hockey experi-
ence, similar to Falcon.
After forming the idea, the
team had to be endorsed by the
department of recreation services
and also registered with Student
Leadership Office.
"They have been endorsed
by this department said Gray
Hodges, director of club sports.
"We support anything that
is recreational, competitive or
instructional that has interest. It
falls under our umbrella
The team wants to call home
to a new facility currently under
construction on Red Banks Road
across from Overtons. The new
ice rink in Greenville is called
Blades on Ice and will debut after
the semester ends.
Before the new rink opens,
the team has scheduled two open
practice sessions in Cary. Unfor-
tunately for the team, they will
have to commute in order to find
a place to skate. Even then, the
price of skating is no easy bill.
Ice time is steep at $200
per hour, a number the newly
formed team will have to pay
out of pocket. In fact, fund-
raising isn't going to be easy
for a team who will have to
garner their own skates, uni-
forms, pads and helmets. The
team will also have a limited
budget because of the extensive
travel and other dues involved.
"It's not going to be easy
Falcon said.
"Everyone I've talked to is 100
percent behind this and is willing
to do a lot of work to get it going.
We're not going to quit after our
first setback i
The teams have plans to raise
money through selling t-shirts
and working at Kings Dominion,
but are currently open to any new
ideas. The team is also looking
for possible local sponsors that
see ICE HOCKEY page A8

Full Court
from page A7
we have a close game and need
someone who can make those
two free throws, Cook has to
have the ball in his hands.
Also, while I feel he will be
at the two-guard, no rule says
he can't bring the ball up the
court. He has great hands and is
incredibly emotional.
I don't like players like Allen
Iverson, the type that just shoots
like crazy and will score 20 or 30
a night just because they shoot 40
times. Well, I'm giving my per-
mission to Mike Cook to do this.
Anytime he shoots, it's a good
shot. Anytime he drives to the
hole, it's a good decision. He has
got to put up double digits every
game and needs be a guy like a
Ben Gordon who has the ability
to spontaneously pop off 20-30
points when we need it the most.
Moussa, on the other hand, is
going to block shots. He's going
to get rebounds. The only ques-
tion will be his scoring. We all
know he can dunk. He dunked
all over teams the entire season
last year. But you can't always
dunk. I have always felt the dunk
is the most overrated play in
sports. A 12-foot baseline jumper
counts just as much as a dunk.
Moussa needs that 12 footer in
his game, along with some sort
of hook shot. If Moussa can just
score 10-15 points a game, I will
be happy. He has the potential to
score 20-30 points a night, but I
don't expect it.
All in all, I really don't know
what to expect this season out
of this team. A part of me says
all these things I have talked
about will happen and we will
make a run at the NIT. A part of
me feels this is classic example
of a transition year and it's hard
to expect much out of the team.
I won't make my official
season prediction until next
week. I have not seen any of the
freshmen play and will see them
for the first time this Saturday
at 12:30 p.m. at Minges for the
Purple Gold game.
Join me out there Saturday
before the football game.
Then we can all play the
guessing game as to who is
out there beside Cook, McNeil,
Moussa and Rouse.

Women's rugby team finishes in top five
The women will play one more home game against the Duke Blue Devils on Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. at the Blount Fields.
ECU places fourth in
state tournament
The ECU Women's Rugby
team traveled to Danville, Va.
this past weekend to compete in
the 2004 NC State Tournament.
Teams from all across North
Carolina came to participate in
this tournament including NC
State, UNC Chapel Hill, Appa-
lachian, Elon, UNC-Greensboro
and others. After having a fairly
successful season, ECU was ready
to play strong rugby against some
of the top teams in the area.
The Lady Pirates' first match
was against UNC-Greensboro, a
team the ladies had lost to last
semester. ECU came out strong
in the first half as Captain Ryan
Whited grabbed the ball out
of the scrum and with some
tricky maneuvering, scored
the first try (S points) of the
game. Whited played skillfully
and consistent throughout the
entire game, scoring two more
tries and a conversion kick (2
points) before it ended. Captain
Amanda Winar also scored one
try in the first half and another
in the second half after a bril-
liant run down the field from
inside-center Nichole Peebles.
The Lady Pirates would go
on to win the game in shutout
fashion, 27-0.
After their opening win how-
ever, ECU lost their second game
to UNC-Chapel Hill. Chapel Hill,
which is in a division above ECU,
hadn't played a game yet in the
ECU fought and forwards
Melissa Blakemore and Amber
Ferrel made a couple of excellent
defensive plays. The back line
also stood strong defensively
with top tackier Dianne Rodri-
guez as she brought down and
rucked over many Tar Heels.
However, UNC finally broke
through the Lady Pirates defense
15 minutes into the game and
scored their first try. The game
progressed slowly from there
and in the end ECU got a taste of
their own medicine as they were
blanked by the Heels, 34-0.
ECU returned on Sunday to
play Appalachian State Univer-
sity for third and fourth place out
of the eight teams entered in the
tournament. Unfortunately the
ladies have been lacking player
commitment and substantial
numbers recently, so they came
to the pitch with only 13 girls.
A standard rugby game is played
with 15 players per side. The
ladies didn't have long to worry
because UNC Chapel Hill and
Blackwater Virginia were gra-
cious enough to let ECU borrow a
couple of players for the game.
Lauren Schaffer rucked con-
sistently against ASU and many of
the rookies tried to compensate for
the lack of familiar players. ASU
ended up winning the game, but
the ECU ladies were quite happy
with their fourth place in the NC
State Tournament.
ECU's next home game is
Nov. 6 at 3 p.m. at the Blount
Intramural Fields. The Men's
Rugby team plays at 1 p.m. on
the same day as well.

The next phase of the ice
hockey blueprint is to be adopted
as part of the ACCHL, or Atlan-
tic Coast Conference Hockey
League. Already participating in
the league is the University of
Virginia, Georgetown, George
Mason, UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke
and Virginia Tech. Winners
of the final tournament will
advance to the Division II club
nationals. The team would begin
competition next year during the
fall semester when the season
starts and lasts through February.
The league requires a maxi-
mum of 21 players be dressed.
With 45 interested, the players
will have to rotate tournaments.
However, the team is still look-
ing for students or faculty that
wants to play.
"Everyone that wants to
come out and skate is more than
welcome to Falcon said.
"Hockey players are of a
different breed. Hockey players
know what 1 mean by that, but
not many other people do
Falcon is ready to see his hard
work pay off when the team laces
up the pads for the first time and
gets on the ice. It will bring back
memories of the Eagles.
"I definitely miss the kids
from hockey and this will allow
me to be around those people
Falcon said.
Maybe they will even let
Happy Gilmore be on the team.
