ECU students
mentor at
risk children
East Carolina Friends
program progressing
SUMMER MARTIN
STAFF WRITER
An increasing number of ECU
students are participating in a
mentoring program in which stu-
dents work with children of local
schools who are in need of extra
support and instruction.
Linda Mooney, associate pro-
fessor with the sociology depart-
ment, founded the program in
the late 1980s.
Under the program, volun-
teers start out working with pre-
school immigrant children, from
ages 3-4. After working with the
pre-school age group children,
the volunteers are put with chil-
dren between the ages of 5-12.
"The program can always use
more volunteers said Mooney.
Students who want to partici-
pate in the program must have
at least a 2.2 GPA, 12 completed
semester hours and own or have
access to a car.
Volunteers help students with
academic work as well as become
a friend and provide support for
children going through rough
times. The relationship with a
volunteer helps the children by
giving them someone they can
talk to whenever they need some-
one to listen and care.
There are several reasons
these children have been selected
by school counselors to spend
time with a mentor. Children
are sometimes chosen due to
issues in their lives, such as their
parents getting a divorce, that
require them to open up to other
people and socialize.
The program has several
events for the students. Each
year, they have a Halloween event
where children compete in sev-
eral contests and other fun activi-
ties at the event including a Fear
Factor table, a talking skeleton,
pin the wart on the witch's nose
and basketball with a ball that
resembles a jack-o-lantern.
The program also sponsors a
holiday party in December and

Tuition increase under discussion
Changes would be
enacted next fall
DUSTIN SCHULTZ
STAFF WRITER
A proposed increase in student
fees and tuition, which would
take effect by the fall semes-
ter of next year, is under
discussion among ECU offi-
cials and the Student
Government Association.
Campus based tuition
is the part of the tuition that
comes back to ECU in the
form of salary increases for the
faculty and the state required
amount for financial aid. These
are two vital aspects for ECU to
keep sufficient in order to main-
tain a quality institution.
"We certainly have a need
to increase salaries said Chuck
Hawkins, Interim vice chancellor
of administration and finance.
"ECU'S salaries for faculty
are lower than that of our peers
- we need to raise them up to a
competitive amount
This fall, there has been
another proposed increase of
$300 per year and approxi-
mately a 5 percent increase in
student fees.
Hawkins and the SGA are
waiting for responses.
"We are still waiting for
direction by the North Car-
olina Board of Governors
Hawkins said.
According to the ECU Fact
Book, in-state tuition and fees
have increased by more than 46
percent, out-of-state tuition has
increased by approximately 36
percent since 1995.
Last year, the ECU finance
office proposed a three-year
Appalachian State University students, Emily McDermontt and Dorothy Andrews, among other UNC
the proposed tuition increase last year. ECU is considering another increase for next year.
�����
from
system students, protested
plan that would increase campus
based tuition $300 per year. The
majority of the schools in the
UNC system had similar tuition
increase proposals.
However, the Board of Gov-
ernors of North Carolina vetoed
the plan and reduced the amount
to a $225 increase for one year.
Last year the SGA voted
against raising campus based
tuition, but the decision was ulti-
mately left up to the BOG.
"It wasn't a matter of not
being listened to said SGA Presi-
dent Shannon O'Donnell.

Anderson is one of 20
chosen by CDC
KATIE KOKINDA-BALDWIN
STAFF WRITER
Assistant Professor Alice L.
Anderson has been selected to
work with The Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention on
a bio-terrorism task force desig-
nated to improve the community
bio-terrorism response.
After being selected in 2003
for the Emerging Leaders Pro-
gram of the CDC Environmen-
tal Health section, Anderson
attended leadership training
programs in Louisville, Ky. where
participants were chosen to
be interviewed by CDC lead-
ers Sharunda Buchanan and
John Sarisky.
Each candidate had an in-
person interview and presented
an in-depth application consist-
ing of explanations for planned
projects and past experience.
Anderson said her experi-
ence In environmental health
separated her from the other
candidates and helped in her
being selected.
"I have worked in the field
and been involved in emergency
response with the state Public
Health Pest Management section
during Hurricane Floyd and
Dennis said Anderson.
The task force will be trained
in multiple locations throughout
the United States and a project
within.each individual's institu-
tion will be completed in the
2004-2005 academic year.
"I was the only candidate on
a university faculty and I believe
one of the goals of the first insti-
tute class was to include as broad
an experience base as possible
Anderson said.
Choosing environmental
health leaders from differ-
ent parts of the U.S. that were
broadly trained in bio-terror-
ism and "all hazards" response
was the main goal for the CDC.
Anderson fit the bill. Having
worked hard during past NC
hurricanes, Anderson said she
feels it is vital for communi-
ties to have properly informed
and appropriate response teams
toward bio-terrorism.
"We did endless hours of
sampling mosquito popula-
tions after the hurricanes to
document need for emergency
spraying and coordinated the
aerial spray response with several
providers Anderson said.
"During Hurricane Fran
response I gave talks at 50-60
health departments regarding
the risk of mosquito-borne
disease transmission. West
Nile Virus was not a threat at
that time, but Eastern Equine
Encephalitis and other disease
problems were risks
Coordinating broad area
aerial sprays and working with
friends from other states, Ander-
son does her fair share of trav-
eling but plans to remain at
ECU during her time on the
task force.
"I will travel to various
training meetings during the
year to meet with the others
in the group, but will remain
here to continue with my other
duties as well and to work on my
�projects, which
include bio -1 er rorism
in the curriculum of our
environmental health program
and in the master's curriculum,
in distance education classes I
am developing Anderson said.

Rumsfeld says Fallujah civilians were warned
WASHINGTON (AP) � Eleven
U.S. troops were killed in Iraq
Monday, the highest single day
death toll in the country in more
than six months, officials said.
Two Marines were killed when
their bulldozer flipped over into
the Euphrates River as coalition
forces launched an operation to
take back the rebel-controlled
city of Fallujah.
But it was a tough day
throughout Iraq, a senior Penta-
gon official said Tuesday, noting
that nine other U.S. troops were
killed in other parts of Iraq
as well.
They were three Marines and
six soldiers - most victims of
homemade bombs and killed In
locations southwest of Fallujah,
southwest of Baghdad and in and
around the capital, the official
said on condition of anonymity.
He said it was too early to tell
whether insurgents had planned
the attacks to divert atten-
tion from the fight under way
in Fallujah.
The death toll of 11 Is the
highest since May 2, when nine
U.S. troops were killed in sepa-
rate mortar attacks and roadside
bombings in three scattered areas
of the country.
In Fallujah, officials said
Tuesday they didn't yet know
why there was lighter-than-
expected resistance. They offered
possible explanations including
that many of the insurgents left
the city before the operation
started or that the troops have
not yet reached the center loca-
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld in a press conference Monday.
tion to which the resistance has
retreated.
It is not necessarily bad news
if the fighters have scattered,
sfhce the main objective is to give
control of the city back to the
Iraqi government, one official
said. Though it means coalition
forces will have to fight them
another day in another location,
pushing them out of Fallujah
at least means they have been
denied that city as a safe haven,
he said.
Civilians in the city of Fallu-
jah got plenty of warning to steer
clear of the fighting between U.S.
and insurgent forces, Defense
Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld
said Monday in predicting "there
aren't going to be large numbers"
of civilians killed there.
"Innocent civilians In
that city have all the guid-
ance they need as to how they
can avoid getting into trou-
ble Rumsfeld told a Pentagon
news conference.
He referred to a round-the-
clock curfew and other emer-
gency measures announced
by interim Prime Minister
Ayad Allawi.
"There aren't going to be
large numbers of civilians killed
and certainly not by U.S. forces
Rumsfeld said.
One risk of using overwhelm-
ing force to regain control of
rebel-held Fallujah is that civil-
ian casualties - nearly inevitable
under the circumstances - could
trigger a backlash elsewhere
in Iraq and in the Arab world
against the U.S. forces and their
Iraqi allies.
Gen. Richard Myers, chair-
man of the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
appeared with Rumsfeld and said
it is likely the insurgents will try
to use civilians as shields against
attacking U.S. troops.
"There are also indications
that they want to fight in a more
conventional way Myers added
without elaborating.
Rumsfeld said no one knows
for sure how many civilians
remain in Fallujah. Tens of thou-
sands are reported to have left in
recent weeks, and Gen. George
W. Casey, the top American com-
mander in Iraq, told reporters
Monday that as many as 100,000
civilians may have remained.
U.S. officials also are unsure
how many insurgents are there.
Myers said some undoubt-
edly slipped away before the
fighting began in earnest, and
Casey said some left while
others arrived. Casey said those
who are fighting are armed
with AK-47 guns, rocket-
propelled grenades,
machine guns, anti-aircraft
guns, improvised explosive
devices and car bombs.

Judge in Peterson murder
trial gives jurors a nudge
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. (AP)
�Jurors deciding Scott Peterson's
fate may have hit a snag after less
than a week of deliberations.
Judge Alfred A. Delucchi
summoned the panelists to the
courtroom Monday morning
where he reissued instructions on
several key points and lectured
them about the importance of
keeping an open mind.
"The people and the defen-
dant are entitled to the indi-
vidual opinion of each juror
the judge said.
"Do not hesitate to change
your opinion for the purpose
of reaching a verdict if you
can do so
"The attitude and conduct of
jurors at all times is very impor-
tant Delucchi said.
"It is rarely helpful for a juror
at the beginning of deliberations
to express an emphatic opinion
on the case
The jurors listened with grim
expressions before they were sent
back into the jury room to resume
deliberating. It was not immedi-
ately clear what prompted the
judge's instructions.
Trial observers speculated
jurors could possibly be reaching
a stalemate.
"They're stuck said Jim
Hammer, a former prosecutor
and trial regular.
"The judge clearly has indi-
cations that they're beginning
to hang

Finance director
suspended after drug charge
BOLIVIA, NC - Brunswick County's
finance director was suspended
without pay after she was charged
with possession of marijuana, which
followed her third DWI charge in
10 years.
Lithla Brooks, 52, announced six
weeks ago that she would retire next
month after she got her third driving-
while-impaired charge in 10 years. But
county officials took action Monday
after she was charged Saturday night
with marijuana possession.
She had been Brunswick's finance
director since June 1986 and was
making $94,737.
Brooks was charged with simple
possession of marijuana and
possession of drug paraphernalia,
both misdemeanors, after Brunswick
County sheriffs deputies searched a
house on Oak Island.
Sheriff Ron Hewett said the
department's drug enforcement unit
went to the house after receiving
complaints about drug sales.
"It was a typical complaint that we
followed through with that ended up
with not-so-typical results he said.
During the search of the premises,
Hewett said, a marijuana cigarette
ind drug paraphernalia were found
in brooks' car.
Also charged was Theodore Hiatt, 29,
who lived at the beach house. He was
charged with possession with intent
to sell marijuana and possession of
drug paraphernalia.
On Monday County Manager Marty
Lawing suspended Brooks without
pay. County Attorney Huey Marshall
said the decision would be reviewed
as information became available.
Brooks' first appearance in District
Court on Saturday's drug charges is
scheduled for Dec. 7. Brooks is then
scheduled to appear court Dec. 14
on her latest DWI charge.
Brooks was found guilty of DWI
in a 1993 case and not guilty in a
1995 incident.
Teen dies four
days after car accident
HUNTERSVILLE, NC - A 14-year-old
boy died four days after he crashed
his parents' car into a tree less than
a block from his home.
Matt Huntz of Huntersville was helping
his parents switch abound cars at his
home shortly before 7 p.m. Nov. 3
when he asked his parents if he could
take their 1998 Toyota around the
block, said his father, Alan Huntz.
Matt's parents waited a few minutes
for their son to get back but needed
to pick up a prescription. He and his
wife, Susan, decided not to wait any
longer and headed out on the errand
in their other car.
For some reason Alan Huntz decided
to turn the wrong way at Babe Stillwell
Farm Road, heading down the dead
end toward a water-treatment plant.
There he saw the crashed car along
the side of the road. The air bag
had deployed.
Matt was wearing a seat belt, Alan
Huntz said. But the door had crumpled,
trapping Matt inside, he said.
The car had spun out on a curve,
sliding off the right side of the road
and hitting a tree, the Huntersville
police report shows.
Matt, a ninth-grader at Hopewell High,
died Sunday at Carolinas Medical
Center from internal injuries, his
father said.
"It was just his time to go somewhere
else his father said. "Certainly we
hurt as parents. But we really, really
hope something positive comes out
of this. That it touches a heart

Bush visits wounded
soldiers as fighting rages In Iraq
WASHINGTON - President Bush is
paying a bedside visit to soldiers
wounded in Iraq as American forces
suffered the highest one-day U.S.
death toll in more than six months
amid fierce battles for control
of Fallujah.
A week after the election that gave
him a second term, Bush was
turning from personnel decisions
for his Cabinet and staff to go to
Washington's Walter Reed Army
Medical Center, accompanied by his
wife, Laura. Bush was to see between
50 to 55 soldiers wounded in Iraq and
Afghanistan. On his last visit in March,
the president awarded Purple Hearts
to eight soldiers.
The U.S. toll in Iraq has surpassed
1,100, and 11 Americans died on
Monday alone. Three more were
killed Tuesday in Fallujah.
"We are forever grateful to the families
of those who have made the ultimate
sacrifice in defense of freedom
White House press secretary Scott
McClellan said.
They are serving for an important
cause and a free Iraq will help
transform a dangerous region of
the world and make America more
secure. We mourn the loss of all of
our fallen
Bush reviewed developments in Iraq
in a meeting Monday with Defense
Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. The
secretary later would not say whether
he wants to continue in his job in
Bush's second term and said the
matter hasn't been discussed in post
election meetings.
New age of
pharmaceutical racial profiling
NEW ORLEANS - The largest study
ever done solely on blacks with
heart failure raises the controversial
prospect of the first drug that might be
marketed to a specific racial group.
The experimental drug, BiDil,
dramatically improved survival and
cut hospitalizations for heart failure,
a problem that affects 5 million
Americans, blacks 2 12 times more
often than whites.
Its maker, NitroMed, plans to seek
federal approval for the two-drug
combination pill by year's end.
"It's a delight to see a trial that
clearly shows a benefit of therapy
in a particular racial group said Dr.
Augustus Grant, past president of
the Association of Black
Cardiologists, which supported
the study.
However, some specialists believe
the pill also would help whites
and say it should have been
tested among them but wasn't for
business reasons.
The study's results were reported
Monday at an American Heart
Association meeting in New Orleans,
and will be published Thursday in the
New England Journal of Medicine.
Heart failure occurs when the heart is
too weak to pump effectively, causing
fluid to back up in the lungs - leaving
people weak and short of breath. Half
die within five years of diagnosis.

Lawyer on terror trail says
violence is necessary
NEW YORK (AP) � A lawyer
accused of conspiring to help
terrorists testified at her trial
th?t she believes only violence
and a "popular revolution" can
combat the evils of capitalism in
the United States.
Under questioning in federal
court, Lynne Stewart said vio-
lence was necessary to reverse
an "entrenched ferocious type
of capitalism" that breeds sexism
and racism. She said civilians
must not be targeted, but left
unclear what kind of violence
she meant.
"i'm talking about a popular
revolution Stewart said.
"I'm talking about institu-
tions being changed and that
will not be changed without
violence
Stewart, 65, has been charged
with providing material support
to terrorists by letting her one-
time client, Sheik Omar Abdel-
Rahman, deliver messages to fol-
lowers after his 199S conviction
for plotting to blow up New York
City landmarks.
She faces up to 18 years in
prison if convicted.
Throughout the trial, Stew-

Lynne Stewart, New York attorney, went on trial for allegedly
aiding terrorist client, Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman.
as a zealous advocate for the
blind Egyptian cleric, whom she
represented at trial and after he
was sentenced to life in prison.
But they say she acted only as
a lawyer.
Prosecutors contend she
became a conduit for the sheik
to communicate with members
of the Islamic Group, an Egyptian
terrorist organization that advo-
cated violence, sometimes as part
of an effort to free the sheik.
When U.S. Attorney Andrew
Dember pressed Stewart to
explain what types of institutions
she believed must be attacked,
Stewart said the American Revo-
lution was accomplished through
violence and that the Civil War
brought about an end to slavery

in blacks, and that blacks may have
lower amounts of nitric oxide, which
plays many roles in heart health, in
their blood.
The Massachusetts biotechnology
company, NitroMed, developed a
combination pill that gets around
this problem, but the federal Food
and Drug Administration refused to
license BiDil as a new drug because
earlier studies involving mostly white
patients showed no benefit.
There were promising signs that the
medication helped the few blacks
in the studies, and NitroMed won
a patent to use it just among that

Arafat's
condition deteriorates overnight
CLAMART, France - Yasser Arafat's
condition deteriorated dramatically
overnight as his coma deepened, a
hospital spokesman said Tuesday,
and top Palestinian officials met with
his medical team,
Two Palestinian officials denied media
reports that Arafat had died, including
Nasser al-Kidwa, his nephew and the
Palestinian Authority's ambassador to
the United Nations, who said he had
spoken to Arafat's doctors.
"The situation is very difficult, but
he is still alive al-Kidwa told The
Associated Press.
Another senior Palestinian official
said Arafat is still alive, but has only
hours to live. The official, who spoke
on condition of anonymity, was in
Ramallah in the West Bank and had
been briefed by Palestinian officials
in Paris.
Palestinian Cabinet minister Saeb
Erekat said that Palestinian Prime
Minister Ahmed Qureia saw Arafat
during a visit of more than two hours
to the Percy Military Training Hospital
in southwest Paris.
Palestinian Foreign Minister Nabil
Shaath did not say what the diagnosis
was. Speaking on CNN, he said
Arafat's brain, heart and lungs were
still functioning.
"The man is not suffering Shaath
said, adding that Arafat "has typical
life support given to people in
a coma
Arafat's wife, Suha, has used French

about the status of his health.
U.N. workers
abducted In Afghanistan
KABUL, Afghanistan - Two of
three U.N. workers kidnapped In
Afghanistan have called home to say
they are OK, officials and relatives
said Tuesday, and one hostage said
she expected to be released soon.
A spokesman for the Afghan
government said "progress has been
made" toward ending the crisis.
"I'm hopeful that we will see their
safe release in the near future said
Jawed Ludin.
It was unclear, however, if officials
would grant the demand of the
Taliban splinter group threatening to
kill the trio for a prisoner exchange,
possibly Involving inmates of the
U.S. prison for terror suspects at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Shqipe Hebibi of Kosovo, British-Irish
Annetta Flanigan, and Philippine
diplomat Angelito Nayan were
abducted 12 days ago when armed
men stopped their marked U.N.
vehicle in downtown Kabul.
The kidnapping fanned fear
that Afghan insurgents had
picked up the deadly tactics of
their Iraqi counterparts, who have
executed a string of Western
hostages.
Afghan and U.N. officials leading
efforts to secure their release have
been tightlipped about negotiations.
But there are signs a deal
is possible.
Behgjet Pacolli, a businessman from
Kosovo who says he is a relative of
Hebibi, told The Associated Press that
Hebibi made a satellite telephone call
to a friend in Kosovo on Monday. The
message was passed to her family,
he said.
"She said she feels good and she will
be soon with them in Kosovo, and I
am happy for that said Pacolli.
Pacolli said he had conveyed a
message to the kidnappers via
"influential people" - he met former
President Burhanuddin Rabbanl
on Monday - and had received
an answer.
"I expect tomorrow late a success

an end-of-the-year picnic at River
Park North.
Mooney has been encour-
aged to enlarge the program by
combining ECU Friends with
a program Michael Bassman,
director of the honors program,
began.
The program started 18
years ago, after Mooney had
a student who was interested
in doing volunteer work with
elementary children, particularly
in mentoring. She found there
were no programs in Greenville
which allowed students to do
this.
She then submitted a pro-
posal to Pitt County Schools
to begin the new program. The
proposal was accepted in Febru-
ary of 1987 and gathered stu-
dents together to start the first
program in the fall semester of
1987.
Since the first year of the pro-
gram, it has giwn tremendously
and has helped aj proxinntely
700 students in the li t C 'ntv
school system.
There are currently twix
the number of volunteers than
there were last year and Mooney
is anticipating the numbers to
continue growing.
As the number of volunteers
increases, the number of schools
the program works with also
increases. Currently, there are
four local schools the program
works closely with to provide
mentoring services to the chil-
dren.
The program requires
students to give two hours
per week to spend with
the child. The program
works not only to provide
extra assistance to children, but
it also helps college students
improve self-esteem, enhance
parenting skills, increase a stu-
dent's ability to seek and main-
tain a job and help to improve
academic skills. Volunteer pro-
grams such as this look good
on future job applications and
resumes.
A mentor is someone
who provides children with a
positive role model, along with
parents or guardians. Mentors
help children in several ways,
such as helping them stay in
school, score higher, have stron-
ger relationships with parents
and bringing out the best in
children.

Protesters storm government
building in Russian region
Demonstrators broke through a government building in Cherkessk on Nov. 9.
ROSTOV-ON-DON, Rir la
(AP) � Protesters storme' the
government building Ti sday
in a volatile southern Russian
3g on amid rising anger over a
li tiple slaying that led to the
attention of the regional pres-
ident's sn-ln-law, police said.
Abou. ,000 people, includ-
ing elderly women in head
scarves, smashed metal barriers
against the building's doors,
shattering the glass panels,
according to video shown on
Russian state television. The
crowd then pried open the
doors and entered the build-
ing, seizing the office of Kara-
chayevo-Cherkessiya President
Mustafa Batdyev, the region's
Interior Ministry said.
The NTV television chan-
nel said Batdyev fled through
a back door. Regional police
said that no officials had been
in the building at the time of
the protest.
At least seven police were
injured in the clash, the Inte-
rior Ministry said. Some special
forces troops sent inside to
prevent protesters from seizing
the entire building also were
injured.
At least two civilians also
were hurt, the Interfax news
agency reported.
The protest began after
prosecutors said they had dis-
covered a common grave that
appeared to contain fragments
of the men's bodies.
Relatives of the victims
say the men disappeared Oct.
10 after being summoned to a
meeting at a cottage belonging
to Ali Kaitov, Batdyev's son-in-
law. Investigators found bullet
casings and bullet holes in a
search of the cottage. Neigh-
bors also reported hearing
automatic gunfire.
Kaitov surrendered Oct. 25
and is detained on abduction
and murder charges, which
he denied. Two more suspects
were detained in St. Petersburg
over the weekend, and Russian
media said they provided infor-
mation about where the bodies
were located.
The Russian prosecutor-
general's office said the bodies
apparently had been sprayed
with gasoline and set ablaze,
ITAR-Tass reported.
Prosecutors earlier arrested
four police officers and three
security guards on charges of
involvement in the abduction.
The Karachayevo-Cherkes-
siya region has been plagued by
frequent contract murders and
other violence, some linked
to rivalry between local
criminal clans and some
spilling over from
warring Chechnya.

from page A1
"I think it is very difficult
for students to see why the
tuition is increased
According to O'Donnell, the
student fees all come back to ECU
in the form of student services.
This includes the 24-hour com-
puter labs, the new Piratemail
e-mail system and a projected
new recreation facility, which
would possibly be the largest
higher-learning recreational
facility in the U.S.
Students, however, still feel
as though their voices are not
listened to on this issue.
"I feel that we have no
say in what goes on with the
student government and
decisions like increasing stu-
dent tuition said senior
Elizabeth Bunn.
Hawkins said there is a way
for students to voice their opin-
ion - join a focus group. Last year,
there were three or four of these
groups that met with the SGA
to discuss matters such as these.
"Students' opinions play
an important role; they bring
up ideas that we have not even
thought of Hawkins said.
O'Donnel said students have
always done a decent job of
expressing their concerns on
tuition and fee increases.

PeterSOn from page A1
Deliberations were to resume
Tuesday.
Peterson is charged with two
counts of murder in the deaths
of his wife, Laci, and the fetus
she carried. Prosecutors claim
Peterson killed Laci around
Dec. 24, 2002, then dumped
her weighted body from his
boat into San Francisco Bay. The
remains of Laci and the fetus
were discovered a few miles from
where Peterson claims to have
gone fishing alone the day his
wife vanished.
After hearing from the judge
Monday, jurors asked to review
numerous pieces of evidence,
including San Francisco Bay tidal
charts seized from Peterson's
computers, an anchor found on
Peterson's boat that prosecutors
allege is similar to the ones he
used to sink his wife's body and
transcripts and recordings of
telephone calls between Peterson
and his mistress, Amber Frey.
They also requested informa-
tion regarding a life insurance
policy on Laci Peterson, a two-
day fishing-license Peterson
purchased on Dec. 23 and a
transcript of a police inter-
view of Peterson regarding his
whereabouts on the day his
wife vanished.
Earlier, jurors inspected
Peterson's 14-foot aluminum
fishing boat, which was brought
to the courthouse. They exam-
ined the sides and looked under
the craft before a few jurors
climbed inside and rocked it
from side to side.
Defense lawyer Mark Geragos
then sought a mistrial, claim-
ing jurors violated the judge's
order by doing "a juror experi-
ment The judge quickly denied
the motion.
Defense lawyers have argued
that it would have been nearly
impossible for Peterson to have
heaved his wife's 153-pound
body over the edge of the boat
without tipping.
As an alternative to a mis-
trial, Geragos asked the judge to
be allowed to show jurors a vid-
eotaped experiment performed
by the defense, apparently show-
ing that the boat would have
tipped over. Delucchi denied
that request, as well.

Finance director
suspended after drug charge
BOLIVIA, NC - Brunswick County's
finance director was suspended
without pay after she was charged
with possession of marijuana, which
followed her third DWI charge in
10 years.
Limia Brooks, 52, announced six
weeks ago that she would retire next
month after she got her third driving-
while-impaired charge in 10 years. But
county officials took action Monday
after she was charged Saturday night
with marijuana possession.
She had been Brunswick's finance
director since June 1986 and was
making $94,737.
Brooks was charged with simple
possession of marijuana and
possession of drug paraphernalia,
both misdemeanors, after Brunswick
County sheriff's deputies searched a
house on Oak Island.
Sheriff Ron Hewett said the
department's drug enforcement unit
went to the house after receiving
complaints about drug sales.
"It was a typical complaint that we
followed through with that ended up
with not-so-typical results he said.
During the search of the premises,
Hewett said, a marijuana cigarette
and drug paraphernalia were found
ir, Brooks' car.
Also charged was Theodore Hiatt, 29,
who lived at the beach house. He was
charged with possession with intent
to sell marijuana and possession of
drug paraphernalia.
On Monday County Manager Marty
Lawing suspended Brooks without
pay. County Attorney Huey Marshall
said the decision would be reviewed
as information became available.
Brooks' first appearance in District
Court on Saturday's drug charges is
scheduled for Dec. 7 Brooks is then
scheduled to appear court Dec. 14
on her latest DWI charge.
Brooks was found guilty of DWI
in a 1993 case and not guilty in a
1995 incident.
Teen dies four
days after car accident
HUNTERSVILLE, NC - A 14-year-old
boy died four days after he crashed
his parents' car into a tree less than
a block from his home.
Matt Huntz of Huntersville was helping
his parents switch abound cars at his
home shortly before 7 p.m. Nov. 3
when he asked his parents if he could
take their 1998 Toyota around the
block, said his father, Alan Huntz. '
Matt's parents waited a few minutes
for their son to get back but needed
to pick up a prescription. He and his
wife, Susan, decided not to wait any
longer and headed out on the errand
in their other car.
For some reason Alan Huntz decided
to turn the wrong way at Babe Stillwell
Farm Road, heading down the dead
end toward a water-treatment plant.
There he saw the crashed car along
the side of the road. The air bag
had deployed.
Matt was wearing a seat belt, Alan
Huntz said. But the door had crumpled,
trapping Matt inside, he said.
The car had spun out on a curve,
sliding off the right side of the road
and hitting a tree, the Huntersville
police report shows.
Matt, a ninth-grader at Hopewell High,
died Sunday at Carolinas Medical
Center from internal injuries, his
father said.
"It was just his time to go somewhere
else his father said. "Certainly we
hurt as parents. But we really, really
hope something positive comes out
of this. That it touches a heart

Bush visits wounded
soldiers as fighting rages In Iraq
WASHINGTON - President Bush is
paying a bedside visit to soldiers
wounded in Iraq as American forces
suffered the highest one-day U.S.
death toll in more than six months
amid fierce battles for control
of Fallujah.
A week after the election that gave
him a second term, Bush was
turning from personnel decisions
for his Cabinet and staff to go to
Washington's Walter Reed Army
Medical Center, accompanied by his
wife, Laura. Bush was to see between
50 to 55 soldiers wounded in Iraq and
Afghanistan. On his last visit in March,
the president awarded Purple Hearts
to eight soldiers.
The U.S. toll in Iraq has surpassed
1,100, and 11 Americans died on
Monday alone. Three more were
killed Tuesday in Fallujah.
"We are forever grateful to the families
of those who have made the ultimate
sacrifice in defense of freedom
White House press secretary Scott
McClellan said.
"They are serving for an important
cause and a free Iraq will help
transform a dangerous region of
the world and make America more
secure. We mourn the loss of all of
our fallen
Bush reviewed developments in Iraq
in a meeting Monday with Defense
Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld. The
secretary later would not say whether
he wants to continue in his job in
Bush's second term and said the
matter hasn't been discussed in post
election meetings.
New age of
pharmaceutical racial profiling
NEW ORLEANS - The largest study
ever done solely on blacks with
heart failure raises the controversial
prospect of the first drug that might be
marketed to a specific racial group.
The experimental drug, BiDil,
dramatically improved survival and
cut hospitalizations for heart failure,
a problem that affects 5 million
Americans, blacks 2 12 times more
often than whites.
Its maker, NitroMed, plans to seek
federal approval for the two-drug
combination pill by year's end.
"It's a delight to see a trial that
clearly shows a benefit of therapy
in a particular racial group said Dr.
Augustus Grant, past president of
the Association of Black
Cardiologists, which supported
the study.
However, some specialists believe
the pill also would help whites
and say it should have been
tested among them but wasn't for
business reasons.
The study's results were reported
Monday at an American Heart
Association meeting in New Orleans,
and will be published Thursday in the
New England Journal of Medicine.
Heart failure occurs when the heart is
too weak to pump effectively, causing
fluid to back up in the lungs - leaving
people weak and short of breath. Half
die within five years of diagnosis.
Earlier research suggested that

Lawyer on terror trail says
violence is necessary
NEW YORK (AP) � A lawyer
accused of conspiring to help
terrorists testified at her trial
that she believes only violence
and a "popular revolution" can
combat the evils of capitalism in
the United States.
Under questioning in federal
court, Lynne Stewart said vio-
lence was necessary to reverse
an "entrenched ferocious type
of capitalism" that breeds sexism
and racism. She said civilians
must not be targeted, but left
unclear what kind of violence
she meant.
"I'm talking about a popular
revolution Stewart said.
"I'm talking about institu-
tions being changed and that
will not be changed without
violence
Stewart, 65, has been charged
with providing material support
to terrorists by letting her one-
time client, Sheik Omar Abdel-
Rahman, deliver messages to fol-
lowers after his 199S conviction
for plotting to blow up New York
City landmarks.
She faces up to 18 years in
prison If convicted.
Throughout the trial, Stew-
art's lawyers have portrayed her
Lynne Stewart, New York attorney, went on trial for allegedly
aiding terrorist client, Sheik Omar Abdel-Rahman.
as a zealous advocate for the
blind Egyptian cleric, whom she
represented at trial and after he
was sentenced to life in prison.
But they say she acted only as
a lawyer.
Prosecutors contend she
became a conduit for the sheik
to communicate with members
of the Islamic Group, an Egyptian
terrorist organization that advo-
cated violence, sometimes as part
of an effort to free the sheik.
When U.S. Attorney Andrew
Dember pressed Stewart to
explain what types of institutions
she believed must be attacked,
Stewart said the American Revo-
lution was accomplished through
violence and that the Civil War
brought about an end to slavery
in the U.S.
"We're not in those times

ACE inhibitors - do not work as well
In blacks, and that blacks may have
lower amounts of nitric oxide, which
plays many roles in heart health, in
their blood.
The Massachusetts biotechnology
company, NitroMed, developed a
combination pill that gets around
this problem, but the federal Food
and Drug Administration refused to
license BiDil as a new drug because
earlier studies involving mostly white
patients showed no benefit.
There were promising signs that the
medication helped the few blacks
in the studies, and NitroMed won
a patent to use it just among that
minority group.

Arafat's
condition deteriorates overnight
CLAMART, France - Yasser Arafat's
condition deteriorated dramatically
overnight as his coma deepened, a
hospital spokesman said Tuesday,
and top Palestinian officials met with
his medical team.
Two Palestinian officials denied media
reports that Arafat had died, including
Nasser al-Kidwa, his nephew and the
Palestinian Authority's ambassador to
the United Nations, who said he had
spoken to Arafat's doctors.
"The situation is very difficult, but
he is still alive al-Kidwa told The
Associated Press.
Another senior Palestinian official
said Arafat is still alive, but has only
hours to live. The official, who spoke
on condition of anonymity, was in
Ramallah in the West Bank and had
been briefed by Palestinian officials
in Paris.
Palestinian Cabinet minister Saeb
Erekat said that Palestinian Prime
Minister Ahmed Qureia saw Arafat
during a visit of more than two hours
to the Percy Military Training Hospital
in southwest Paris.
Palestinian Foreign Minister Nabll
Shaath did not say what the diagnosis
was. Speaking on CNN, he said
Arafat's brain, heart and lungs were
still functioning.
"The man is not suffering Shaath
said, adding that Arafat "has typical

U.N. workers
abducted In Afghanistan
KABUL, Afghanistan - Two of
three U.N. workers kidnapped in
Afghanistan have called home to say
they are OK, officials and relatives
said Tuesday, and one hostage said
she expected to be released soon.
A spokesman for the Afghan
government said "progress has been
made" toward ending the crisis.
"I'm hopeful that we will see their
safe release in the near future said
Jawed Ludln.
It was unclear, however, if officials
would grant the demand of the
Taliban splinter group threatening to
kill the trio for a prisoner exchange,
possibly involving inmates of the
U.S. prison for terror suspects at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
Shqipe Hebibi of Kosovo, British-Irish
Annetta Flanigan, and Philippine
diplomat Angellto Nayan were
abducted 12 days ago when armed
men stopped their marked U.N.
vehicle in downtown Kabul.
The kidnapping fanned fear
that Afghan Insurgents had
picked up the deadly tactics of
their Iraqi counterparts, who have
executed a string of Western
hostages.
Afghan and U.N. officials leading
efforts to secure their release have
been tightlipped about negotiations.
But there are signs a deal
is possible.
Behgjet Pacolli, a businessman from
Kosovo who says he is a relative of
Hebibi, told The Associated Press that
Hebibi made a satellite telephone call
to a friend in Kosovo on Monday. The
message was passed to her family,
he said.
"She said she feels good and she will
be soon with them in Kosovo, and I
am happy for that said Pacolli.
Pacolli said he had conveyed a
message to the kidnappers via
"influential people" - he met former
President Burhanuddin Rabbani
on Monday - and had received
an answer.
"I expect tomorrow late a success
he said. He said no ransom was
being offered.

from pg A1
an end-of-the-year picnic at River
Park North.
Mooney has been encour-
aged to enlarge the program by
combining ECU Friends with
a program Michael Bassman,
director of the honors program,
began.
The program started 18
years ago, after Mooney had
a student who was interested
in doing volunteer work with
elementary children, particularly
in mentoring. She found there
were no programs in Greenville
which allowed students to do
this.
She then submitted a pro-
posal to Pitt County Schools
to begin the new program. The
proposal was accepted in Febru-
ary of 1987 and gathered stu-
dents together to start the first
program in the fall semester of
1987.
Since the first year of the pro-
gram, it has grown tremendously
and has helped aj proxinntely
700 students in the Pi! t C 'ntv
school system.
There are currently twict.
the number of volunteers than
there were last year and Mooney
is anticipating the numbers to
continue growing.
As the number of volunteers
increases, the number of schools
the program works with also
increases. Currently, there are
four local schools the program
works closely with to provide
mentoring services to the chil-
dren.
The program requires
students to give two hours
per week to spend with
the child. The program
works not only to provide
extra assistance to children, but
it also helps college students
improve self-esteem, enhance
parenting skills, increase a stu-
dent's ability to seek and main-
tain a job and help to improve
academic skills. Volunteer pro-
grams such as this look good
on future job applications and
resumes.
A mentor is someone
who provides children with a
positive role model, along with
parents or guardians. Mentors
help children in several ways,
such as helping them stay in
school, score higher, have stron-
ger relationships with parents
and bringing out the best in
children.

Protesters storm government
building in Russian region
Demonstrators broke through a government building in Cherkessk on Nov. 9.
ROSTOV-ON-DON, Rur la
(AP) � Protesters storme' the
government building T sday
in a volatile southern Russian
?g on amid rising anger over a
u tiple slaying that led to the
.mention of the regional pres-
ident's sm-in-law, police said.
Abou ,000 people, includ-
ing elderly women in head
scarves, smashed metal barriers
against the building's doors,
shattering the glass panels,
according to video shown on
Russian state television. The
crowd then pried open the
doors and entered the build-
ing, seizing the office of Kara-
chayevo-Cherkessiya President
Mustafa Batdyev, the region's
Interior Ministry said.
The NTV television chan-
nel said Batdyev fled through
a back door. Regional police
said that no officials had been
in the building at the time of
the protest.
At least seven police were
injured in the clash, the Inte-
rior Ministry said. Some special
forces troops sent inside to
prevent protesters from seizing
the entire building also were
injured.
At least two civilians also
were hurt, the Interfax news
agency reported.
The protest began after
prosecutors said they had dis-
covered a common grave that
appeared to contain fragments
of the men's bodies.
Relatives of the victims
say the men disappeared Oct.
10 after being summoned to a
meeting at a cottage belonging
to Ali Kaitov, Batdyev's son-in-
law. Investigators found bullet
casings and bullet holes in a
search of the cottage. Neigh-
bors also reported hearing
automatic gunfire.
Kaitov surrendered Oct. 25
and is detained on abduction
and murder charges, which
he denied. Two more suspects
were detained in St. Petersburg
over the weekend, and Russian
media said they provided infor-
mation about where the bodies
were located.
The Russian prosecutor-
general's office said the bodies
apparently had been sprayed
with gasoline and set ablaze,
ITAR-Tass reported.
Prosecutors earlier arrested
four police officers and three
security guards on charges of
involvement in the abduction.
The Karachayevo-Cherkes-
siya region has been plagued by
frequent contract murders and
other violence, some linked
to rivalry between local
criminal clans and some
spilling over from
warring Chechnya.
Increase
from page A1
"I think it is very difficult
for students to see why the
tuition is increased
According to O'Donnell, the
student fees all come back to ECU
in the form of student services.
This includes the 24-hour com-
puter labs, the new Piratemail
e-mail system and a projected
new recreation facility, which
would possibly be the largest
higher-learning recreational
facility in the U.S.
Students, however, still feel
as though their voices are not
listened to on this issue.
"I feel that we have no
say in what goes on with the
student government and
decisions like increasing stu-
dent tuition said senior
Elizabeth Bunn.
Hawkins said there is a way
for students to voice their opin-
ion - join a focus group. Last year,
there were three or four of these
groups that met with the SGA
to discuss matters such as these.
"Students') opinions play
an important role; they bring
up ideas that we have not even
thought of Hawkins said.
O'Donnel said students have
always done a decent job of
expressing their concerns on
tuition and fee increases.

PeterSOn from page A1
Deliberations were to resume
Tuesday.
Peterson is charged with two
counts of murder in the deaths
of his wife, Laci, and the fetus
she carried. Prosecutors claim
Peterson killed Laci around
Dec. 24, 2002, then dumped
her weighted body from his
boat into San Francisco Bay. The
remains of Laci and the fetus
were discovered a few miles from
where Peterson claims to have
gone fishing alone the day his
wife vanished.
After hearing from the judge
Monday, jurors asked to review
numerous pieces of evidence,
including San Francisco Bay tidal
charts seized from Peterson's
computers, an anchor found on
Peterson's boat that prosecutors
allege is similar to the ones he
used to sink his wife's body and
transcripts and recordings of
telephone calls between Peterson
and his mistress, Amber Frey.
They also requested informa-
tion regarding a life insurance
policy on Laci Peterson, a two-
day fishing-license Peterson
purchased on Dec. 23 and a
transcript of a police inter-
view of Peterson regarding his
whereabouts on the day his
wife vanished.
Earlier, jurors inspected
Peterson's 14-foot aluminum
fishing boat, which was brought
to the courthouse. They exam-
ined the sides and looked under
the craft before a few jurors
climbed inside and rocked it
from side to side.
Defense lawyer Mark Geragos
then sought a mistrial, claim-
ing jurors violated the judge's
order by doing "a juror experi-
ment The judge quickly denied
the motion.
Defense lawyers have argued
that it would have been nearly
impossible for Peterson to have
heaved his wife's 153-pound
body over the edge of the boat
without tipping.
As an alternative to a mis-
trial, Geragos asked the judge to
he allowed to show jurors a vid-
eotaped experiment performed
by the defense, apparently show-
ing that the boat would have
tipped over. Delucchi denied
that request, as well.

Multivitamins prevent birth
defects and prematurity
New research findings suggest that women who
take multivitamins before becoming pregnant
are less likely to deliver prematurely. Research
conducted at the University of North Carolina
in Chapel Hill concluded that women who took
multivitamins before conceiving were half as
likely to deliver before 37 weeks of pregnancy.
The American Journal of Epidemiology states
that continued use of multivitamins through
the first couple of months of pregnancy
appears to have no influence on the risks
of prematurity. However, this does not mean
regular use of a multivitamin should stop
- they offer benefits to the expectant mother
as well as the baby.
According to a study by Dr. Anjel Vahratian,
multivitamins contain folic acid, which is a B
vitamin that helps prevent birth defects in the
brain and spinal cord if taken early in the preg-
nancy. Folic acid may improve the placental
environment, which during the last months of
pregnancy can help fetal growth.
Vahratian's team conducted an investigation
to see how a woman's diet before conceiving
affects the fetus. They asked 2,010 women
between their 24th and 29th week of preg-
nancy about their multivitamin use before
and during the pregnancy. It was concluded
that approximately 30 percent took vitamins
before and during their pregnancy and 54
percent said they only took the vitamins
once they knew they were pregnant. They
also found that 93 women only took the
vitamins before conceiving. Of those women,
only five gave birth prematurely. According
to the article it is "a lower rate of prematurity
than seen in nonusers, in women who took
vitamins before and during pregnancy and
in those who started vitamins once they
became pregnant
TEC would like to encourage all women of
childbearing age to take a multivitamin to
ensure your health and the health of your
baby, whether you are pregnant now or think-
ing about becoming pregnant.
If continued use of a multivitamin is not your
choice, then consider eating foods rich in folic
acid, such as dark green leafy vegetables,
bananas, nuts and asparagus. The combined
use of a multivitamin with foods containing
folic acid can ensure a healthy pregnancy
and less risk of birth defects.

Opinion Columnist
Retraction is a cause for regret
No risks equal no rewards
RACHEL LANDEN
STAFF WRITER
It's been two weeks since my last
column appeared in TEC. If anyone
thought maybe I had been fired or
decided to quit, my return today should
prove those suspicions incorrect.
I wasn't let go, nor did I decide to
give up. Well, not exactly, anyway.
Actually, I did have an opinion
prepared for last Wednesday's issue. I
submitted it and was planning to see it
in print before I got second thoughts.
I didn't shout to stop the presses but I
did beg my editor to retract it before it
was even published.
There's nothing especially dramatic
about the situation. I just changed my
mind, asked that the opinion not be
printed and it wasn't. End of story,
right?
Not quite. Although my one-page
commentary didn't create any scandals
in the newsroom or on campus, the
issue still plagued me. What I wrote
was by no means a generally offensive
or inflammatory piece - 1 just wofried
that some people might take seriously
what I meant as a joke or satire. I didn't
want to take that chance.
It seems that maybe as soon as I
made my decision, I should have let it
go. But now I can't help but wonder if I
made a mistake. After all, I am writing
on the opinion page of TEC. No matter
what I say, someone is liable to disagree
with me.
If 1 write something positive, a
reader is sure to think I'm too happy. If
I write something negative, someone
else will likely deem me too critical.
That is the risk I take, or at least the
one that perhaps I should take. In this
case, it is one that I missed out on
last week.
Life is all about risks and taking
chances. Everyday when we leave our
houses, apartments or dorm rooms, we
are taking the first chance of many for
that day. We risk our health, our safety
and our lives when we exchange the
security of our shelter for the uncer-
tainty of the world outside.
But what if we were too scared to
leave our homes and venture out in
public? Surely we would miss out on
life. Maybe we could get our groceries
delivered, have someone pick up our
dry cleaning and stuff envelopes for
money from home. Perhaps we could
get by and continue our existence.
Living, however, is something entirely
different.
It is inherently full of risks, chances
and gambles. There's no real safety
net and you aren't guaranteed a posi-
tive return. I have to admit that's a
daunting prospect but what is more
so is when you don't act at all, you're
guaranteed failure, disappointment
and regrets.
Author Ray Stannard Baker once
said "We fail more often by timidity
than by over-daring
Courage may be difficult to muster
at times but the value of it is certain.
Someone told me that I'm brave for
what I write because I put a little piece
of myself into each article. I don't know
if that's true, but I do feel slightly more
vulnerable each time I see my column
in the newspaper. Putting myself in
this position may be daring or it may
simply be foolish.
Either way, it's just another of those
little risks that we take each day, the
kind that helps us to grow, to experi-
ence life and to leave the comfort of
who we were behind. Of course, it is
something that we all have to figure
out on our own. How far do we go with
the risks of living? Baker may have
encouraged boldness but he himself
actually hid his own personal identity
in writing under the pseudonym of
David Grayson.
Deciding just how far out on a limb
we want to go is up to each person. The
further you go, the more you risk. But
according to those much wiser than I,
the greater the reward will be.
Letters to the Editor
Dear Editor,
In the Nov. 4, edition of The East
Carolinian, Peter Kalajian writes a post-
election editorial titled "Democrats
fall short yet again Rather than rant
and rave in his normal Bush-bashing
style as if he needed to prove he was
a spoiled loser, Kalajian would have
better served his readers by writing
an intelligent editorial entitled "Why
have the Democrats fallen short yet
again?" The answer to this question
rests in the very essence of Kalajian's
unreasoned arguments.
If the Democrats are to ever reclaim
the White House and the majority of
houses of the American electorate,
they must move their political ideol-
ogy more to the center of the political
spectrum and to the thinking of an
average American who still places a
value on values. In short, like Kalajian,
the Democrats must sing the same song
that most Americans are singing.
Kalajian references that President
Bush and the Republicans swept the
Southeast and the Central Plains. His
implication is clear. Kalajian would
lead his readers to believe that the
northeastern and western U.S. citizens
voted clearly for Senator Kerry, thereby
coloring their states blue. Kalajian
should visit a map that shows how
the people of the various counties in
these states voted. Had he done that,
Kalajian would have discovered that
only the New England states would be
colored blue. For example, California
is actually more dominantly colored
red, even though its 55 electoral votes
went to Senator Kerry because of the
large metro areas.
However, I must not bash Kalajian
anymore. I once walked in his shoes.
I once believed as he believes. I once
thought I had all the answers to all the
questions. Then, one day, something
happened to me, and it will happen
to you, Kalajian. I discovered I did not
have all of the questions, much less the
answers. So, Mr. Kalajian, enjoy your
idealism and liberalism. It will one day
be replaced with realism and conser-
vatism. You may not even realize it is
happening, but it will happen.
That's what Mr. Kalajian and the
Democrats need - a solid dose of real-
ism and conservatism. Watch out, Kala-
jian, with realism comes responsibility!
Oh! Darn it! I then have to deal with
the real world, not just the ivory tower
of Intelligentsia.
Tim Mizelle
Dear Editor,
Close to 60 million Americans feel
that we need more military spending,
senseless loss of life, tax cuts for those
who do not need them and a good
health care system for only those who
can afford it.
In 2000, George W. Bush cam-
paigned to "unite" Americans. Now, we
have never been more divided, which
could in return play to Bush's favor. In
the Nov. 3 edition of The New York
Times, an editorial was published claim-
ing that "Bush does not see division
as a danger. He sees it as a wingman
With post elections comments flying,
Americans have expressed that unity
is important. How can we as a nation
come together if our leader does not see
this as a priority?
It's also very startling to me to hear
that most people voted for Bush based
on his morals, when morality questions
seem to be one of the bigger issues
facing our president right now. Loss
of life in Iraq is not moral - denying
citizen's affordable health care is not
moral - and denying women's rights is
certainly not moral.
This administration gathered much
false evidence to go to war with Iraq
with no clear cut plan, putting Ameri-
can troops and our country in a very
immoral position. It amazes me that
even after all the lies were surfaced we
still support this bogus war and the
man who led us in this direction.
David Bodenheimer
ECU Sophomore Political Science
Dear Editor,
Peter Kalajian's Nov. 4 edito-
rial, "Democrats fall short yet again"
is the exact reason Democrats are
failing to win elections. Your views
on economics are ludicrous. In the
United States today, there is a lower
unemployment rate than in any of the
Clinton years. The top one percent of
wage earners in this nation earns 40
percent of the wealth yet pay 99 per-
cent of federal taxes. In fact, I believe
the redistribution of money from the
rich to the poor is socialism. Unfortu-
nately our country has become more
socialist due to the liberals. Socialism
has, time and time again, proved to be
the unworkable "ideal" government.
So who do you quote to complain
about President Bush? Karl Marx,
author of the "Communist Manifesto
So I see.
What do the Democrats need to
win elections? Nominate more centrist
candidates, particularly in the South
and Midwest. Most of all, quasi-social-
ists like Kalajian need to refrain from
insulting people that have Christian
morals and values. Face it, Bush has
received a mandate from over half of
the American electorate and we're tired
of being told that homosexuality and
abortion are divine rights and guns
are wrong. There's an old saying that
"pride goeth before the fall Well, the
Democrats believed all along that they
are smarter and they got their butts
handed to them.

I understand we will have to
work with other people when
we graduate. However, group
projects that affect my grades
now are unfair. It seems I always
get stuck with people who don't
care and I end up having to do
my part and theirs.
Why is it that some teachers
start teaching 5 - 10 minutes
before the class is scheduled to
start?
I thought we were out of high
school. Snickering, giggling and
whispering to your neighbor
about someone else's comment
is stupid. Be a big boy or girl and
speak up.
Don't you think it's strange
that the only close-minded and
ignorant people are the ones that
disagree with you?
Fifty thousand people are
dead and 1.2 million people are
starving in refugee camps in the
Sudan, all because of govern-
ment-backed militias. If only that
country had some better terror-
ists, or at least more ties to better
terrorists, then we could bring
freedom to them too.
Why is it that when some-
thing is running perfect, some-
one always has to try to fix it?
I am sick of seeing people
wear John Deere hats as a fash-
ion statement. About 99 percent
of the John Deere apparel on
campus is worn by people who
have never even mowed a yard, so
I don't know why they think they
should advertise farm equipment.
Guys and dolls if you go
to the gym, work out. Don't just
stand around looking pretty
with your face full of make up or
flexing in the mirror when I am
really trying to work up a sweat
and get in shape.
So I go to Wright Place and
I buy a fountain drink that is
already overpriced. I was thirsty.
I drank it all quickly. Then I go
to get a refill, and what do they
say? "You must pay for that Are
you kidding me?
What is the deal with the
tattoos on the lower back of the
chicks on this campus? It is so not
sexy. Don't you girls realize those
things grow as your body does?
How hard is it to make it to
class on time? I know that on
occasion people do oversleep, but
what about the people who come
into class late everyday?
I'm glad most teachers didn't
cancel class last Monday just
because it was the day after
Halloween. Students that go out
and get drunk out of their minds
shouldn't be given any special
treatment. You're here to learn
and to get an education, not to
get drunk. There are other ways to
celebrate the holidays and other
big events besides getting drunk.
It seems fads follow in
sequence with fads from 30 years
ago. A few years ago, bell-bottoms
came back and now it's the 1980s
popped-collar. Maybe next it'll
be Vanilla Ice and "Word To Your
Mother" jackets.
Look ladies, I'm a very busy
guy so if I don't call you back
right away that doesn't mean
that I don't want to see you. I
will get to you eventually so will
all of you please stop calling me,
IMing me and coming over all
the time. There is plenty of me to
go around so just wait in line.
Today we salute you, Mr. TEC
Bud Light commercial wannabe
writer. While others are out
making a difference in the com-
munity, all you can do is write
silly rants about metrosexuals
and John Kerry voters. Though
you may be an ace at hunting,
fishing, attempting to be funny
and drinking beer, you are still
caught up in Dick Cheney's and
Karl Rowe's chain of deception.
So crack open an ice cold Bud
Light TEC Bud light commercial
wannabe writer, because you'll
have plenty of time to smell the
crap (four years more) while deal-
ing with a potential lawsuit.

Aries: Planning Is one thing, but
working up a good strategy Is
another. You've roughed out the
general dates and times. Now get
into the specifics.
Taurus: Although you normally
think things out carefully before
proceeding, you don't have time
to do that. Work fast, you can fix
errors later.

distracted with daydreams and
mess up an important job. Your
workload is increasing tomorrow.
Make sure you're well prepared.
Cancer: Don't let your passion for

the jitters. Trust your own instincts.
They're right on target.
Leo: You love it when you can
immerse yourself in an interesting
subject. Make time to do that while
you can. Others need attention
tomorrow.
Virgo: Abundance Is flowing
your way and it's because of
something you've already done.
It may have been only a wish you
made and you acted upon.
Libra: It's good to list your talents
and attributes every once In a
while and to count your blessings.
Figure out how to make a profit
with them. Now's a perfect time.

love that.
Sagittarius: Your team or group
goes round and round, talking the
Issue to death.

in the lead are talking quite freely
now. Ask questions so you'll know

should do next.
Aquarius: Learn just as much
as you can, especially about
beautiful things from afar. Pay
attention! This could lead to great
career advancements.
Pisces: Beautiful things can be
your downfall or your Inspiration.
If you surround yourself with

II aboard new 'Polar Express'

Chfistmas tale comes
to big screen
KATHERINE DAY
STAFF WRITER
With the popularity of com-
puter animation and the success
movies that use this advanced
technology have, waves of new
and innovative story-telling
continue and thrive. The 1986
Caldecott Medal winner The
Polar Express is following in the
footsteps of such hits as Toy
Story and Shrek by partaking
in the same animated technol-
ogy which continues to evolve.
The latest Warner Bros, release
is aiming to please the holiday
crowds Nov. 10.
Different technologies have
been experimented with to bring
new visions to the big screen.
In a process called rotoscop-
ing, The Polar Express brings its
characters to life by using live
actors to capture their image
and performance so they can be
duplicated with CGI. Academy
Award winning actor Tom Hanks
(Philadelphia, Forrest dump) lends
his talents to take on the roles of
The Hero Boy, Father, Conduc-
tor, Hobo, Scrooge and Santa
Claus.
The holiday film, with Hanks
as Executive Producer, is aiming
for a younger audience that may-
have missed out on last year's
Will Ferrell comedy Elf. Based
on the popular children's book,
The Polar Express hopes to share
the Christmas tale with a whole
new generation.
Doubting the existence of
Santa Claus, a young boy (voiced
by both Tom Hanks and Daryl
Sabarar lays awake the night
before Christmas Day. Hearing
what sounds like sleigh bells
and reindeer on his roof, he
gets out of bed to investigate
the strange noises What he
finds is a steam engine and a
conductor inviting him to come
along on a journey to the North
Pole. When the boy boards the
train, he is greeted with many
other children, all doubting
the existence of Santa Claus.
Director Robert Zemeckis
(Forrest Gump, ('ast Away) utilizes
special effects to masterfully tell
the story brought to life inChris
Van Allsburg picture book. The
visually stunning film carefully
mimics the movements of its
actors to produce an astound-
ingly realistic effect. The Polar
Express continues the movement
of technologically advanced
children's films.
For nearly 20 years now, the
book has been a favorite among
children, especially during the
Christmas season. Robert Zem-
eckis was eager to take on the
project.
"It became an annual tra-
dition to read the story to
my son while he was grow-
ing up and it never failed to
fascinate him said Zemeckis.
"The imagery has an oth-
erworldly quality, existing
somewhere between dreams and
reality, which captures the mys-
tery of a restless Christmas eve
People of all ages can relate
to the excitement and anticipa-
tion that comes the night before
Christmas. In the big-screen
interpretation of the story, the
magic comes to life so audiences
young and old can enoy the
familiar story. A sneak preview
will play in select cities on Nov.
6 for families to get together and
share the holiday season earlier
this year.
The Polar Express is already
being looked at as the year's top
Christmas film that will surely
draw the holiday crowd. The
film's star, Tom Hanks, fondly
recalls reading the story to his
children and the effect it has had
by heightening the Christmas
experience.
"For years, between Novem-
ber and December, depending on
the children's ages, I think I read
it four times a week, twice a night,
over and over again. So I've been
aware of the story since my 14-
year-old was three said Hanks.
More than anything, The
Polar Express is a story about faith
and hope, it chronicles the point
in a child's life that they begin
to feel the weight of skepticism
and realize a meaningful part of
their childhood is being taken
away. The belief in Santa Claus
is apart of the innocence that
comes along with childhood.
It is when a child can look for-
ward to the magic that comes
with Christmas, not just the
presents and the time off from
school. Santa Claus is not
just a myth, it's what makes
childhood special and
Christmas enchanting.
The heartwarming story
may be over the top, but for
this Christmas tale, it seems
appropriate. An advanced review
was reserved for Joshua Tyler of
Cinema Blend Online, which he
approached with slight objec-
tion. "In any other movie this
would be cheesy and utterly
unacceptable, but in a Christmas
movie this sort of schmaltz isn't
only acceptable, it's heartwarm-
ing. The really important thing
to remember kids is if you believe
in the impossible, you'll get
really great presents. The Polar
Express is an impossibly strange
CGI gift, but not a bad one .
Time will tell how other crit-
ics and audiences will react to
this film. However, it's fair to say
fans of the book will be delighted
to see the beautiful story in
theaters this month. The Polar
Express will surely be a pleasant
surprise for everyone wanting
to see an uplifting Christmas
film that looks to bring out the
believer in all of us.

'Seed of Chucky' coming soon to a theater near you
Fifth film in'Child's
Play'series
GARY MCCABE
STAFF WRITER
Every weekend it seems like a
new horror film is being released
complete with a brand new 'bad
guy' everyone is supposed to be
afraid of. Because of this, the
pecking order among these so-
called 'bad guys' Is in a constant
state of flux. One exception to the
trend, is Chucky from the Child's
Play series. Chucky has carved
out a niche for himself and has
been able to stand-out among
the ever-growing population of
monsters, aliens and psychotic
dentists - despite being a mere 2-
feet, 6-inches. Two-feet, 6-inches
of foulmouthed, bloodthirsty
doll, that is.
It all began with the 1988
release of the original Child's Play,
written by Don Mancini who
also would go on to write each
additional film in the series. The
film centers around serial killer
Charles Lee Ray, also known as
'The Lakeshore Strangler Mor-
tally wounded during a shoot out
with police, Ray evades the police
briefly, hiding out in a toy store.
Desperate and near death, Ray
performs a voodoo ritual which
transfers his soul into a nearby
'Good Guys' doll before police
storm into the shop to finish
the job.
He might have died in one
sense, but Ray lived on through
the doll, being reborn as 'Chucky
When a young lad named Andy
receives the doll as a birthday
gift, Chucky's killing spree begins
with the demented doll slaying
every human being in sight. As
the body count rises, so does
Chucky's frustration with his
physical limitations and soon
a plan is hatched to find a new
body to take control of. Chucky
sees his new owner Andy as a
perfect host and spends the dura-
tion of the film pursuing him,
ultimately failing in the end and
gets charred for his trouble.
For some reason, Chucky
caught on with audiences. Maybe
it was because they enjoyed
Chucky's foul mouth and wicked
sense of humor. Maybe they iden-
tified with his plight. Or maybe
they just really enjoyed seeing a
doll throwing a babysitter out of a
window of a high-rise apartment.
Roger Ebert of the Chicago
Sun Times offered one theory
for his popularity: "What is It
about dolls that makes them
seem so sinister? Why is it that
kids In the movies always seem
to share some evil secret with
their dolls?
And why is It that when you
see a doll on a shelf, its eyes
seem to move by themselves?
1 think when we were kids, we
all secretly believed our dolls
were up to something while we
were asleep. And the movies can
exploit that fear, because most
of us are not aware we carry that
secret around as part of the sub-
conscious trauma that makes life
so interesting
Whatever the reason, Uni-
versal ordered two more films
featuring the pint-sized lunatic,
each invariably similar to the
original. In each, Chucky would
be resurrected in some fashion
and would begin slaughtering
each human being that comes
between him and his goal of
stealing Andy's body.
With each passing sequel,
the films became less hortor and
more comedy. The death scenes
became more elaborate and
down-right ridiculous as each
death was merely a set-up for a
'clever' one-liner from Chucky. A
fine example is from Child's Play
3 where after choking a police

Chucky quips, "there's nothing
like a strangulation to get the

The first two sequels to Child's
Play failed to reach the suc-
cess of the original but main-
tained a cult following. Following
Child's Play 3 in 1992, the series
'hibernated' for several years, as
movie-goers no longer seemed
interested in horror films. That
all changed with Scream in 1996.
Suddenly, horror was cool again
and Chucky was back with Bride
of Chucky in 1998.
InBriofCfay,aiarlesLeeRay
is once again resurrected as Chucky,
this time by his old girlfriend
Tiffany, played by Jennifer Tilly.
Shortly thereafter, Chucky
kills Tiffany and transfers her
soul into another doll's body.
The two then team up, killing
anything breathing, on their
path to dig up Ray's body, which
conveniently was buried with a
Satanic voodoo charm capable
of raising the dead.
The ending, where Tiffany
and Chucky marry, left open the
possibility of another film when
Chucky's son is born with the
same demonic ruthlessness that
his parent's were infamous of.
Seed of Chucky features the
orphaned son of the dolls, Glen
who heads to Hollywood after the
production of a movie based on
his parents starts.
The brutal story of Chucky
and Tiffany draws actress Jenni-
fer Tilly to take on the lead role
and Redman to direct the horror
"urban legend Glen resurrects
his dead parents and once again,
they return to they're murder-
ous ways much to kind-hearted
Glen's horror.
In Seed, Chucky can't seem
to understand his son's passive
ways while Tiffany is excited her
favorite actress (Tilly) is starring
in her life story to notice. Unsatis-
fied with his current son, Chucky
yearns for a real human child,
deciding that Tilly would be the
perfect mother.
As of yet, the film has had few
screenings and little is known of
it outside of what the film studio
behind it has released.
This much is known, the film
was directed by Don Mancini
who has written the screenplay
for each film in the series so the
film will be true to his earlier
efforts.

A night of hard rock
and video games
KRISTIN MURNANE
STAFF WRITER
The Nintendo Fusion Tour
swept through Charlotte and
Myrtle Beach this week with
headliners Story of the Year
and support acts My Chemical
Romance, Letter Kills and Auto-
pilot Off. As the tour's slogan
states, the tour is a "fusion of
music, video games and lifestyle
The venue's lobby was filled with
Nintendo GameCube kiosks fea-
turing games ranging from the
soon to be released Mario Tennis
to MetroidPrime and X-Men. There
were free giveaways with vintage
Nintendo patches, stickers and
buttons as well as rock magazines
up for grabs.
Autopilot Off, whose sopho-
more album, Make a Sound, was
released this spring, took the
stage at around 8 p.m. inside the
House of Blues in Myrtle Beach,
SC. Dressed in noticeably preppy
attire, consisting of button-down
shirts and tight fitting jeans with
perfectly sculpted hair, Autopilot
Off played before an already full
crowd. With a set list consisting
of their newest single, "What
1 Want they started the show
off on the right note, getting the
crowd to sing along with them
aiid continuously crowd surf.
Letter Kills were next on stage
with arguably the best set of the
night. Including acrobatic stage
antics including microphone
tossing, stage diving and writh-
ing and rolling all over the stage,
the crowd showed just as much
energy as the five rockers on
stage. The fist-pumping "Lights
Out" was the highlight of their
set as the guitarists were running
across the stage and the crowd
was chanting along with lead
singer Matt Shelton. It was a mir-
acle how Shelton didn't manage
to knock out any of his guitarists
as both the microphone and the
microphone stand went twirl-
ing across the brightly lit stage.
Their set came to an end around
9:30 p.m. after playing their first
single, "Don't Believe
My Chemical Romance
arrived on stage to a now sold
out crowd and they rocked every
person in attendance on Sat-
urday night. With a dimly lit
stage and enough eyeliner to
put a high school cheerleader to
shame, MCR was clearly the most
, hardcore band to grace the stage.
Introducing their current single,
"I'm not Okay (I Promise) "this
song is for anyone who owns
a radio MCR ripped out an
impressive half hour set.
Headlining band Story of the
Year, known for their two singles
"Anthem of our Dying Day" and
"Until the Day I Die took the
stage at around 10:30 p.m. and
played an hour long set contain-
ing almost every song off their
debut release Page Avenue, as well
as a unique addition.
To add a bit of comedy, SOTY
took a break in the middle of
their set to announce they found
a way to prove they are indeed
talented. Then they began a
medley of pop songs including
"Sweet Home Alabama Goo
Goo Dolls' "Iris and Michael
Jackson's "Beat It As this medley
was taking place, each member
of the band alternated positions.
The drummer took over as the
lead guitarist, the singer took the
drums and the guitarists tossed
their guitars back and forth. With
a stage presence much resembling
that of 80s hair metal bands,
the guitarists were bouncing in
unison around the stage and even
managed to throw in a handful
of high kicks.
The Nintendo Fusion Tour
came to an end at around mid-
night, leaving the fans exhausted
and satisfied, yet still wanting
more. After the show, all four
bands were outside signing auto-
graphs and taking pictures with
fans until nearly 2 a.m. Talk
about dedication.
If you weren't a fan before
this concert, you were definitely
a fan after the show. Mixing
video games with punk rock,
Nintendo succeeded in pleasing
their fans this fall. To hear songs

sr Newberry provides test for ECU
Strahan out for season
The New York Giants' chances of
getting back to the playoffs took
a major hit with the loss of All-Ro
defensive end Michael Strahan for
the rest of the season with a chest
injury. Strahan, the NFUs aH-tlme,
single-season sacks leader, tore
a pectoral muecle on his right
side while attempting a tackle
in the third quarter of Sunday's
28-21 toss to the Chicago Bears
Not only did the Giants (5-3) lose
the six-time Pro Bowl player and
cornerstone of their defense,
they eteo tost the other starting
defensive end, Keith Washington,
for the season with a knee injury.
Strahan is scheduled to have
surgery Wednesday. He was not
available tor comment The tosses
of the defensive ends made the
question of whether It was time
for top draft pick SI Manning to
take over at quarterback tor Kurt
Warner Insignificant Monday.
For the record, Warner will start
at Arizona on Sunday. Strahan
was hurt early in the third quarter,
reaching out to tackle Chicago's
Anthony Thomas. When Thomas
cut i n side, Strahan s right arm bent
back. He walked off the field with
his arm hanging down.

Six-time Olympic champion
Michael Phelps was arrested last
week and charged with drunken
driving. A trooper saw the 19-
year-old swimming sensation go
through a stopstan Thursday night,
state police said Monday. The
trooper saw signs of Intoxication
and arrested Phelps for driving
under the influence, police said.
Phelps also was charged with
violation of a license restriction
and failure to obey a stop sign. The
legal drinking age in Maryland is
21. The swimmer from suburban
Baltimore won eight medals at
the Athens Olympics, including
six golds Phelps, wearing a
Baltimore Ravens jersey, was
introduced to the crowd before
the team's game Sunday night.
If Phelps Is convicted of driving
under the influence of alcohol,
he could receive a year in jail, a
$1,000 fine and 12 points on his
drivers license for a first offense.
The (Baltimore) Sun reported
He could be subject to a 60
day sentence and a $500 fine if
convicted on a first offense on the
charge of driving while impaired.
On either charge, a judge could
give a defendant probation before
judgment or Impose a lesser
penalty, but the driver could still
lose Ws driving privileges.
Ex-NHL player
sentenced to jail
Former St Louis Blues player Mike
Danton was sentenced Monday
to 71? years in prison for trying
to have his agent killed Danton.
24, said nothing as US. District
Judge William Stiehl imposed
the sentence. Danton is expected
to ask to be moved to a prison
in his native Canada. As for his
hockey career, there is no parole
in the federal system and, the
judge noted, Danton might not
ba allowed to return to the US
after completing his sentence. His
contract with the Blues expired
after the 2003-04 season.
At the sentencing Danton s
attorney, Robert Haar. apologized
on behalf of Danton "for the
pain and disappointment he has
caused" his teammates and fans.
Danton pleaded guilty In July
to murder conspiracy charges.
Prosecutors said he tried to hire
a hit man to kill David Frost,
his agent and Canadian youth
hockey coach. Authorities said
Danton and Frost had argued
over Danton's alleged promiscuity
and alcohol use and Danton
feared Frost would tell the Blues'
front office about his behavior. In
September, a jury acquitted Katie
Wolfmeyer, 19, of Florissant, Mo of
charges she took pert in the plot.
Wolfmeyer claimed she did not
know Danton was trying to hire
a hit man when she introduced
him to an acquaintance, Justin

Corey Rouse (23) and Mike Castro (35) combined for 18 rebounds against Newberry Thursday
but the Pirates' pair in the paint will have to perform better while Moussa Badiene is out.
Basket-
ball season
is upon us
and it's here
through
March.
The
men's team
opened their
season up
last week in
an exhibi-
tion. Minges
Coliseum, while lacking people,
was very energetic. Some things
looked a lot better than they did a
week ago, some looked worse.
Here are the good things.
Marvin Kilgore is the man. I
admit it. I was not impressed with
him at this time last week, but I
have changed my opinion. In fact,
my opinion of the team and the
players has changed quite a bit.
Against Newberry in an exhi-
bition win with a score of 90-4S
last Thursday, Kilgore was awe-
some. He got the starting job at
the point and looked like a differ-
ent player from what I saw in the
PurpleGold Game.
The young point guard scored
14 points, was a perfect 2-2 from
three-point range and dished out
seven dimes. The stat I'm most
impressed with, however, is the
number zero. He had no turn-
overs, which was what I was most
concerned about with him.
Mike Cook also looked
impressive. He gave me the shock
of the night when he didn't start
at a guard position. He started
at small forward. He dropped 13
points on what was a poor shoot-
ing night for him.
Cook missed all five of his
three point attempts and was
only 5-13 from the field. He
earned five of his points from
the free-throw line. He must con-
tinue to score from the free-throw
line. He will be double-teamed
quite a bit this season, and will
not get many open looks. If he
can drive and get his two points at
the line, the Pirates will be well off.
Japhet McNeil did something
he didn't do much of last year
- he scored. McNeil matched
Kilgore's game high of 14 points
and hit from behind the arc
once. He did turn the ball over
twice and had just four assists,
but I think he will still start this
season. This team's defense is
one of the weaker parts I feel and
McNeil is the best defender less
than 6-foot, 10-inches. This team
historically has been a defensive
minded team and McNeil will
be the defensive leader in the
backcourt. He proved that with
his four steals against Newberry.
Overall, the deciding factor
in the win was the turnover
margin. The Pirates only gave
the ball away seven times and
forced 26. Turnovers have the
biggest correlation with winning
in basketball and if the team con-
tinues to perform like this in the
turnover column, great things
will happen.
But until we get to those great
things, I'm going to criticize and
scrutinize a little bit. Not every-
thing was all roses for the Pirates
against Newberry.
First off, Moussa's injury is
most certainly a downside. A
sprained thumb kept him out of
the game and he is expected to
miss another week or so. Without
Moussa, this team doesn't win.
And if he can't play, Bronson is
the man inside.
Unfortunately, we were not
able to see Bronson during the
scrimmage. He was held from

Wannstedt resigns after 1-8 start
Davie, Fla. (AP) � Miami
Dolphins coach Dave Wannstedt
called it quits Tuesday midway
through a dismal season that
began with the retirement of
running back Ricky Williams and
has left the team with the NFL's
worst record at 1-8.
Defensive coordinator
Jim Bates was promoted to
interim coach.
"As you might imagine, this
was not a very easy decision
from a personal standpoint, but
I believe it is a proper decision
at this time for being a profes-
sional Wannstedt said. "Some-
body has to accept the responsi-
bility. I am the head coach and
that falls on me
The timing of the coaching
change wasn't surprising, with
the Dolphins beginning their
bye week.
Bates' first game as interim
coach will be Nov. 21 at Seattle.
He was head coach of the USFL's
San Antonio Gunslingers in
1985 and joined the Dolphins
as defensive coordinator when
Wannstedt became head coach
in 2000.
"Our focus, my focus, for the
next seven weeks will be to get
better, to win football games
Bates said.
WANNSTEDT
"We will play hard and will
step up to the task
Wannstedt's final defeat
came Sunday, when Miami blew
two leads and lost 24-23 to the
Arizona Cardinals, who ended a
17-game road losing streak. The
Dolphins endured their most
lopsided defeat of the season
last Monday, 41-14 against the
archrival New York Jets.
Dolphins players were aware
of Wannstedt's tenuous situation
and rising discontent among fans.
"I feel sorry for the guy
because he's a first-class guy
cornerback Patrick Surtain said
after Sunday's defeat.
"It's not like guys aren't going
out there giving 110 percent and
laying it on the line for him.
We're doing it all - getting hold-
ing penalties, offsides, we're doing
crazy stuff. How can he control
that when he's on the sidelines?"
Wannstedt barely avoided
being fired after last season, when
Miami failed to reach the playoffs
for the second year in a row. Huiz-
enga decided to keep Wannstedt,
but stripped him of author-
ity over personnel decisions.
Little has gone right for
Miami since. Wannstedt was
twice forced to change offensive
coordinators during the off-
season, and Williams abruptly
retired just before training camp.
Receiver David Boston, the top
offseason acquisition, suffered a
season-ending knee injury before
the first exhibition game.
That was the start of an injury
wave, and the Dolphins have had
the worst start in their 39-year
history. They're one defeat from
their first losing season since 1988.

It's business as usual for the Lady Pirates at practice.
BRANDI RENFRO
SPORTS WRITER
pqtffeordB
Well
Pirate fans,
not much to
report this
week. The
Lady Pirates
practiced all
week long
and partici-
pated in a
closed scrim-
mage against
Campbell
University
Saturday.
During the scrimmage, they
played several mini-games focus-
ing on different game situations.
Both teams were able to practice
different offensive tactics, as
well as defensive maneuvers.
Although no score was taken,
both teams played as if it were a
live game.
The Lady Pirates have con-
tinued to progress throughout
the week. Keisha Anthony came
back from an injury and was able
to play in the scrimmage. The
team is beginning to gel and are
becoming more accustomed to
each other's styles.
The only unfortunate event
that "loured is Catherine
Cooley was unable to play in
the scrimmage due to an injury,
but she should be back within
the week.
ECU has their first game in
two weeks against Duquesne
and should have plenty of time
to get everyone healthy. But,
the only disadvantage about the
game against Duquesne is it's
their first game against anyone
else. The game against Campbell
doesn't really count, in my book,
because it wasn't a live, full game.
It was more for practice than
competition.
Unlike the men's basketball
team, the Lady Pirates are not
playing any exhibition games. I
don't think this is necessarily a
good thing because exhibition
games give teams a chance to
see what things need to be fixed
or adjusted before the season
begins. They also give the coach
a chance to see how certain play-
ers react to certain situations.
Hopefully, they will have all of
the kinks fixed and be ready to
roll by their first game. If not
then, it will be a slow start for
the season.
That wraps up all of the Lady
Pirate news for the week. I will
be giving my predictions for the
season after the Duquesne game,
but look for another installment
of Points from the Paint next
week.

November 7-13 is National Health Information
and Technology Week
(AP) � A local phone book
lists a number that's supposed
to provide callers with Informa-
tion on buying Charlotte Bobcats
tickets but instead refers them to
an adult chat line.
The NBA expansion
team and BellSouth officials
are trying to figure out how
it happened.
The correct number,
(800) 4NBA-TIX, is an official
NBA number established by
the league three years ago
through which callers in any
city purchase single-game
tickets.
It's the same number that ran
in the 2002-03 BellSouth White
Pages, back when the city had the
Charlotte Hornets.
But the number in this year's
BellSouth book released in Sep-
tember - as well as last year's
2003-04 book - lists a toll-free
number that's different from the
official NBA one.
BellSouth and Bobcats offi-
cials said they learned of the
glitch Thursday.
"We certainly apologize to
any of our fans who have been
inconvenienced by this said
Chris Weiller, Charlotte Bobcats
executive vice president of cor-
porate affairs.
The Bobcats want the incor-
rect number rerouted to the
Bobcats' direct line for tickets
and other information: (704)
BOBCATS.
Clifton Metcalf, a BellSouth
spokesman, said the company
followed its usual procedures
with the Bobcats.
Weiller said team officials
didn't review the ad for this
year's phone book.
Bobcats owner Bob Johnson adresses the crowd before
Charlotte's opening game against the Washington Wizards.
Dolphins m mM
Jimmy Johnson in 2000, has a
record of 43-33 in Miami. His
career NFL record, including six
seasons with the Chicago Bears,
Is 84-90.
Wannstedt was fired in 1997
by the Bears. His final two teams
there went 4-12.
The Dolphins won only one
playoff game under Wannstedt,
and that was four years ago. Even
with seven Pro Bowl players in
2002, including NFL rushing
champion Williams and sacks
leader Jason Taylor, the Dolphins
missed the playoffs.
One of Wannstedt's first
moves when he became coach
was to nudge a 38-year-old
Dan Marino into retirement.
As a replacement Wannstedt
acquired Jay Fiedler, who has
never been popular with Dol-
phins fans.
Wannstedt was just the
fourth coach in Dolphins
history, and only Don Shula
coached the team longer.
While the Dolphins have
been a perennial playoff con-
tender - until this year, at least
- they haven't reached the AFC
championship game since 1992.
Their last Super Bowl berth was
in 1984, and they haven't won
an NFL title since 1973.
Huizenga, who became sole
owner of the Dolphins in 1994,
has been through three coaches
in pursuit of a championship. He
nudged Shula into retirement fol-
lowing the 1995 season, and John-
son called it quits four years later.
Speculation regarding the
next coach began weeks ago,
with LSU's Nick Saban, former
Florida coach Steve Spurrier,
Philadelphia Eagles offensive
coordinator Brad Childress and
New England Patriots offensive
coordinator Charlie Weis men-
tioned as possibilities.
Full Court
from page A8
the game for what coach Herrion
defined as "academic reasons
A team this thin cannot afford
suspensions. Hopefully, the
message Herrion sent by not
dressing Bronson sent a message
to the players.
Due to both centers not
playing, Corey Rouse and Mike
Castro started at the four and
five. They combined for 18
rebounds, seven of which were
offensive. However, they were the
two biggest guys out there. I feel
these two must rebound better
for this team to succeed. I know
that seems a little unreasonable,
but against a team like Newberry,
Castro and Rouse should have
grabbed 12 or 13 boards each.
My favorite thing about coach
Herrion is the way he teaches
players to box out and 1 am
certain this will not be an issue.
It seems every year this team
struggles from the free-throw
line. If Thursday was any indi-

cation of this year, don't look
for any improvements from the
charity stripe. As a team, they
were a dismal 21-39, a horrid 53.8
percent. Bad teams shoot
70 percent from the
line and they shot 53.8.
Only Josh King was
perfect from the line, and he
only shot one time. All a team
needs to do is hack the mess
out of the Pirates and they win.
Besides turnovers, ftee-
throw shooting and field
goal percentage are perhaps
the only other statistics that
can tell you who won just by
looking at them.
The game showed lots of �
promise, but there are some
things that need to be worked on.
They get a chance to get some of
that work done Thursday against
Barton at 7 p.m.
