U.S. Senator Bob Packwood (R-Ore.),
chairman of the Senate Finance
Committee, resigned Thursday after
being charged by the Senate Ethics
Committee with sexual misconduct
and obstruction of justice. Packwood
relinquished his chairmanship on
Friday and promised to leave the
Senate by the end of the month.
Packwood had originally stated that
he would fight his expulsion, but
changed his mind when Senate
leaders assured him they had the 67
votes it would take to oust him.
The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians
elected a new chief Thursday and
made history by doing so. Joyce
Dugan, director of Cherokee’s
schools, is the first female leader of
the tribe. She won 62 percent of the
vote and six of the seven polling
precincts in defeating incumbent
Jonathon “Ed” Taylor. Approximately
70 percent of eligible voters cast
ballots in the election. Dugan will
take office on Oct. 2 and will serve a
four-year term. Taylor faces impeach
ment hearings before the tribal
council this week. He is accused of
abusing his power and mis-managing
tribal funds. If impeached during his
last two weeks in office, Taylor will
be denied the courtesy title of chief,
be barred from running for tribal
office in the future and will collect no
The N.C. Supreme Court Thursday
upheld the May ruling of the state
Court of Appeals that overturned the
convictions of Robert F. Kelly Jr. and
Kathryn Dawn Wilson on charges of
child sexual abuse. The appeals court
ruled that the judge and prosecutors
in the case made so many errors that
the convictions had to be overturned.
Kelly, owner of the Little Rascals Day
Care Center in Edenton where the
abuse allegedly took place, was
convicted on 99 counts of abuse on
April 22, 1992, and sentenced to 12
life terms in prison. Wilson, a cook at
the center, was convicted on five
counts of abuse on Jan. 26, 1993, and
sentenced to life in prison. State
Attorney General Mike Easley, who
led the state's appeal to the Supreme
Court, said in a written statement that
he will leave the decision of whether
or not to pursue a new trial up to
Chowan County prosecutor Frank
E-Mail is an added bonus
on Meredith campus
by Arinn Dixon
Last week I wrote an article about ail
of the interesting, new stuff we have
going on at Meredith. I mentioned
the new commuter parking lot and
the renovation of the Cate Center,
but there was one thing important
thing I failed to talk about: e-mail.
That’s right, ladies, we have e-mail
this year. It hasn’t been publicized
too much, so I thought I would take
it upon myself to inform everyone.
E-mail (stands for electronic mail) is
a neat system that allows you to
write letters and send them elec
tronically to anyone who also has e-
mail. That means you can write to
your boyfriend at Carolina, press a
button and automatically send him
your letter. It costs absolutely
nothing and is so much faster than
the U.S. mail. Does this sound great
or what? Let me tell you how to get
your very own e-mail account.
First you have go to Technology
Services on the third floor of
Johnson Hall and fill out an e-mail
application. It asks you about your
class and how many credit hours
you have and general questions like
that. You can turn that in right
there in the office after you fill it
out and Liz Truelove or Lori
McDade, both of whom work in
Technology Services, will set up a
training time for you to learn how
e-mail works. If you don’t turn in
your application at the office you
can mail to Technology Services
and you will receive a notice telling
you to call Truelove at 829-2323 to
set up a training time.
The training sessions are only about
an hour long and are really informa
tive. You also learn how to get
access to the Internet. The Internet
is cool because you can find
information on just about any
subject under the sun, and you can
talk electronically to people around
I’m really proud of Meredith for
joining the “world-wide web” by
getting hooked up into e-mail and
the Internet. It looks like we are
definitely coming up in the world.

RJWARD YOUR. ACHIEVEMENT
by Wendy Kelly
For the first time in my life I wanted
to send someone hate mail. I wanted
to call her up and tell her just what I
thought of her.
I wanted to reach through the
screen during Oprah last week and
pop Shannon Faulkner on the hand.
How dare she disappoint me like
For the past two and a half years I
have defended her like a champ and
now she does this to me.
The nerve of the woman!
Faulkner had the audacity to “tell
her story” on Nightline and Oprah.
She has become quite famous, or
infamous depending on yotn
She’s probably going to sell the
rights to her story and become a
millionaire. She disgusts me. She
should have been in counseling to
deal with the enormous amount of
stress put upon her and she should
have been in shape!
You can’t tell me she didn’t know
what Hell Week was going to be
After her great fight to attend The
Citadel she should have been
prepared and she was not. Faulkner
is nothing but a joke now.
I bet all of you out there that believe
she shouldn’t have been at The
Citadel in the first place are having a
ball with the recent turn of events.
I can even hear “I told you so”
being muttered across campus.
Y’all are getting a good laugh out of
But you know what? Shannon
Faulkner may not attend The Citadel
,but she did accomplish something
by setting precedent and breaking
Another woman will rise to the
She will attend and graduate from
The Citadel...Who’s laughing now?
