Clinton makes plea
to get tough on crime


By Nancy Benac
Associated Press


WASHINGTON —- Pressed by
crime-weauy mayors and police to
embrace tougher gun controls. a
somber President (‘linton declared
yesterday that violence is “tearing
the heart out of our country." The
attomcy general said it ought to be
at least as hard to get a gun as a
driver‘s license.

“The American people are tired
of hurting zurd tired of feeling inse-
cure and tired of the violence."
(‘linton told officials from 35 cities
gathered at the White House. “it‘s
changing everyone's life in ways
that are quite destructive. We have
to move. and i think we are pre-
pared to move."

(‘lintoii called for passage of a
tough crime bill, including provi-
sions in put more police officers on
the street and ban gun ownership by
children. He also has directed the
Justice Department to study wheth—
er gun owners should be licensed

Yesterday. Clinton said, “We
ought to talk about what else we do
and where we go." without refer-
ring directly to the gun licensing
idea he had ordered the Justice De-
partment to begin studying on

Attomey General Janet Reno said
the department also was consider-
ing a limit on the number of guns
an individual may own and a broad—
er version of a proposed ban on as-
sault weapons.

Registering guns is not enough,
Reno said. because people should
be required “to know how to safely
and lawfully use a gun" before they
can buy one.

“It ought to be at least as hard to
get a gun as a driver's license.“
Reno said. Justice Department offi-
cials are examining ways to test
people to determine their knowl-
edge of safe gun handling and of
when it is lawful to fire a weapon.

Bonds put UK in the money

University to refinance issues,
saving millions in debt service


By Lance Williams
News Editor


UK will save more than $6 mil-
lion as a result of its decision to re-
finance six revenue bond issues,
taking advantage of the recent de-
cline in interest rates to record low

The University will take steps to
save additional money on Dec. 14.

when the Board of Trustees will be
asked to authorize the refinancing
of as many as nine additional bond

“This will create flexibility to is-
sue new bonds in 1994 if interest
rates are favorable." UK Controller
and Treasurer Henry Clay ( )wen
said. He explained that the decision
on whether to go ahead with the ad-
ditional refinancing will not take
place until next year.

The University’s savings came
about in much the same way as
those of homeowners who have
flocked to lending institutions to
refinance their home mortgages.

UK is a major issuer of revenue
bonds. As of June 30.
$314,189,000 worth of 11K bonds
were outstanding.

The University is authorized to
issue bonds to pay for several types
of capital construction projects, in-
cluding educational buildings on

Calling all celebrities!

This is exactly what a local radio
station cried throughout the month
of November. and a UK student
group listened.

Donald Meador. also known as
Banana Don. a disc jockey for
WTKT-FM (103.3). awarded the
members of the Student Affiliates
of the American Chemical Society
52.000 in cash and prizes yesterday
for having the biggest celebrity call
in to the station.

WTKT announced the contest at
the beginning of November. The
listener who got the “biggest celeb-
rity" to call in before Nov. 30
would win. All celebrities were ver-
ified as legitimate before the prize
was awarded.

Dr. Philip Sharp. the winner of a
1993 Nobel prize, won the contest
for SACS. beating out celebrities
such as baseball legend Pete Rose
and actress Loretta Swit. Sharp won
the Nobel prize earlier this year for
his work with gene splicing in med-

SACS. contacted Sharp last month
and told him about the contest.
Yates said Sharp was more than
pleased to help out future chemists
and said he would call the station.

over the radio and informed SACS

Yates said Wilson told her about
the contest and thought it would be
good publicity and that the money
was much-needed.

“We were totally delighted to
win." Yates said.

Anita Madden. a local celebrity
known for holding an annual Ken-
tucky Derby Party for her famous
and affluent friends. was chosen to
pick the winner of the contest. The
prize was 81.000 in cash. a limou-

Amy Compton. the secretary for
SACS. said the group plans to use
the gift certificate to help the needy

plans to contact the UK hospital to
see if it needs anything. (‘ompton

The members of SAl‘S prepare

Hall has special place in history


By Jackie Flegle

Patterson Hall. UK's first resiv
dence hall for women, has stood
among the aging shade trees of
North Campus for 90 years.

Last Saturday. in celebration of
its 90th anniversary. Patterson resi-
dents held a gala in the hall's large
ballroom area. where students usu-
ally go to study or socialize.

Upon entering, one sees a lobby
area full of furniture that might be
found in a nice bed and breakfast
inn. The area behind the front desk
is decorated like a parlor -- with a
couch. a fireplace and a mirror
looming on its mantle.

Through the years. the building
has developed quite a reputation
and has undergone several changes.

The hall was built in 1903 on the
site where the borne of the first
married couple in Kentucky once
stood. It was named after the first
president of the UK. James K. Pat-

housed only women.

lyzed individually. taking into ac
count the present debt service over
the life of the issue. the “call pre-
mium" that must be paid to the
owners of the old bonds and the
cost of issuing new bonds at a low-
er interest rate. If the numbers
work. the proposal for refinancing
a bond issue is presented to the UK
Board of Trustees for approval.

The six bond issues that have
been refinanced so far will mean a
savings of $6,491,545 to UK over
the next l7 years. until the last of
the bonds reaches maturity. Aver-
age annual savings amount to


One of the bond issues to be re-
financed dates from 1971. It paid
for construction of the Patterson
Office Tower. White Hall Class-
room Building. the Agricultural
Science Center. Seaton Center and
the renovation of Memorial Hall.

Owen said there are many rea-
sons for determining if an old
bond issue is a good candidate for
refunding. Generally, Owen looks
for opportunities to save 3 to 5 per-
cent of the principal value of the
old bonds.

“But what we‘re really looking
for is annual debt service saving,"
Owen said. “We may be willing to
take two percent savings on princi-
pal value if it will result in signifi-
cant annual savings because this is

something that directly affects the
University operating budget."

No matter what the interest rate.
there is no shortage of investors ea-
ger to add UK bonds to their portfo-

“There are a lot of people who
like to buy and hold UK bonds. and
there's also a very strong secondary
market." Owen said.

For some investors, personal alle-
giance to UK is one reason to buy
UK bonds. But Clay pointed out
that UK enjoys an AA rating from
Stande and Poor's and an AI rat-
ing from Moody‘s. the two major
bond rating services.

“These are very strong ratings for
a public university," said Owen “It
makes it easy for those who like UK
to indulge their sentiment."

A task force from the US. Con-
ference of Mayors presented Clin-
ton with a report yesterday recom-
mending gun registration. banning
semiautomatic assault weapons.
imposing waiting periods on pur-
chases of all firearms. and signifi-
cantly taxing ammunition and fire-
arm sales.

“The frustrations of citizens and
police has reached a point of no
confidence in a system that repeat-
edly puts dangerous felons back on
the street.“ Salt Lake City Police
Chief Ruben Ortega told Clinton.
“The stress of the system has
reached a level of utter dismay and
fear giving rise to the belief that
the only remedy is for citizens to
arm themselves."

Louisville Mayor Jerry Abram-
son. president of mayors confer-
ence. said violent crime has
reached epidemic proportions,
such that “people in our cities are
demanding action."

Foes of gun control said the ad—
ministration is focusing on the
right problem but looking at the
wrong solution.

“Gun control is not the answer,
and to continue to go down the
road to deprive law-abiding citi-

from attending (the University),"
said Leigh Ann Weidner, a fifth-
year German and economics senior
and resident adviser at the resi-
dence hall.

At that time. men's residences
were in the quadrangle. located at
the center of the main campus.

Weidner said Patterson Hall be-
came a co-ed honors residence hall
this year, following last year's suc-
cess with Boyd Hall‘s honors pro-

The two buildings are connected
by a walkway that will be opened
upon installment of a new security
system that requires a person to
have a meal card to gain entry.

Weidner also said the building
supposedly is haunted by a ghost
who lives in the attic. It is said that
she occasionally can be seen peer-
ing out of residence hall's win-

Today, 125 people live in the
hall. Residents are not required to

zens of their ability to protect them-
selves is going to exacerbate
crime,“ said Steve Whitener of Gun
Owners of America. “The answer is
to make sure criminals are punished
for their crime. The president is
simply barking up the wrong tree."

The administration‘s tougher talk
on gun control and crime followed
a shooting rampage on a Long Is-
land, N.Y.. commuter train Tuesday
that left five dead and 18 wounded.
Last week after a seven-year legis-
lative battle. Clinton signed the
Brady gun-control bill. requiring a
background check and waiting peri-
od on handgun purchases.

Health and Human Services Sec-
retary Donna Shalala said the Long
Island shootings shattered the
“myth that violence only affects our
inner cities."

“Violence affects all of us," said
the health secretary. It must be
thought of “as a public health crisis
that requires public health solu-
tions" like polio in the 19505 and
AIDS today.

Although FBI statistics show that
violent crime has actually declined
slightly in recent years. polls show
that Americans are becoming in-
creasingly concerned.

Violent crime reponed to police

dio stations around the country are
taking stands against rap music
deemed as advocating violence or
disparaging women and minorities.

Stations KPWR-FM in Los An-
geles and WBLS-FM in New York
City were the latest to muzzle ex-
plicit rap songs.

KPWR plans to electronically
mask three derogatory words used
in some rap songs. WBLS said it

will ban songs that glorify violence
or include lyrics that are profane
and hateful to women or gays.

Rick Cummings, program direc-
tor of KPWR, said the station was
responding to concerns from listen-
ers upset by violent and misogynis-
tic lyrics.

The deletion of the three words
followed a request two weeks ago
by Stop the Violence Increase the

nia community activists who have
been lobbying radio stations.

The three words are “nigga.”
“bitch" and “ho" (whore).

Slam-dunking on the basketball

pick-tumed-Orlando Magic star
Shaquille ()‘Neal also hits hard in
the music industry.

The multi-talented ()‘Neal slzuns

Recording the album during the
off-season in Los Angeles and Or-
lando. ()‘Neal worked with some of
the most popular names in the rap
industry ~— such as A Tribe (‘alled
Quest. Deflef and lirick Sermon —-
to produce an album that eliminates
any doubt that the basketball star
can flow with the pros in hip-hop

O‘Neal has even made a video of
his first single (“What‘s llp l)oc‘."‘l
featuring l-‘u-Schnickens. which al-
ready has gone gold.

()ther cuts on Shaq Diesel have
the potential to go gold. as well, be-
cause ()‘Neal gets wrecked
throughout the album. which is
packed with dope beats and clever
lyrics. especially in “Are You a
Rough Neck."

Following a near-two-minutc in-
tro that contains samples of “The
Big Iiasi“ by Masta Ace is a track
called “(I know I got) Skillz."
which is one of the main attractions
on the album.

()n this track. which resembles
Dr. Dre‘s “(‘hronic." O'Neal com-
ments on his basketball abilities and
highlights from his infant career.

“All you jealous punks can‘t stop
my dunks." he brags in this song. as
he does throughout Shaq Diesel.
even in the cut “I Hate To Brag."
which is produced by Def Jef.

If you‘re shooting for profound

sages on this album. you‘re des-
tined for an air ball. for the Shaq

ing on himself, despite the fact that
he has substantial rap skill.

Other than comedian Sam Kini-
son screaming in the background.
“Giggin‘ ()n ‘Em" is fresh. howev-
er. with the aura ofa mellow reggae

Shaq Diesel. as a whole. is fresh.
and the 7-foot-1 All-Star has firmly
established himself on the team of
respected rappers.

’lhere's no doubt the Shaq Attack

can hang with the big boys. on and

‘Nutcracker’ mends
cracks in holiday spirit


By Jill Lanham
Contributing Writer


The holiday season is upon us,
but take a moment away from your
studies to relieve some tension and
stress. The Lexington Ballet Com-
pany has a remedy better than your
doctor could prescribe.

“The Nutcracker Ballet." present-
ed by the Lexington Ballet. opens
today and runs until Tuesday.

Tchaikovsky‘s “Nutcracker Bal-
let“ is extremely popular during the
holiday season. This Christmas bal-
let is complimented by exquisite,
hand-sewn costumes and an elabo-
rate set.

The story takes place on Christ-
mas Eve at the home of Concelor
von Stahlbaum and Frau von Stahl-
baum. Their children. (Tiara and
Fritz. are filled with anticipation for
a Chrisunas' party that is about to
begin. A party guest arrives and
brings Clara :1 special gift ~- a nut-
cracker doll.

The ballet is based on ETA.
lloffmann‘s “Der Nussknacker und
der Mausekonig."

Clara falls asleep and dreams that
she defends her nutcracker against
the King of the Mice The nutcrack-
er then turns into a handsome
prince. who takes her on a fabulous

After passing through the snow
forest. they come to the beautiful
Land of the Sweets. where a diver-
sity of dances from foreign lands
are perfonned.

“It‘s really a great ballet. It gets
you in the holiday spirit.“ ballet in-
tern Emily Pharrer said.

The ballet is a magical holiday
fantasy performed by professional
dancers. as well as children. The
Lexington Ballet Company dancers
join with more than 65 young peo—
ple from the School of the Lexing-
ton Ballet. and together they bring
this masterpiece to life.

Dancer Mikelle Bruzina said she
loves performing with the children.

“The young dancers are great to

work with." she said. “They come
here and are so excited to practice
for the ballet. We really enjoy
working With them."

Working well with the children
and with one another is the key to
performing “The Nutcracker." The
dancers go through months of prep—
aration for the perfonnance.

Dancer Katherine Ilowe said the
company has been preparing for
"The Nutcracker" since ( )ctober.

”We practice six days a week
from about nine to five. depending
on the day and what we have
planned." she said. “We go by a
daily practice schedule until dress
rehearsals, where we finalize every-


l’harrer said ballet is a discipline
that students can relate to.


“Dancing is like writing a paper.‘
she said. “One day you start writ-
ing, then the next day you rewrite
and then eventually you finish the
paper. With dance. you start one
day. then you practice and keep
practicing until the performance."

Tickets for “The Nutcracker" are
on sale at the ()tis A. Singletary
Center for the Arts box oflice be-
tween noon and 5 pm, Monday
through Friday. Tickets are $18.
