Low turnout plagues
giveaway of tickets

Start of classe
from first-day


By Brian Bennett
Senior Staff Writer


Fewer students than normal
turned out for the first day of UK
football ticket distribution yester-
day because of a conflict with the
first day of classes, an administrator

Rodney Stiles, director of admin-
istrative services, said tickets for
the Sept. 5 opener against Central
Michigan “went slower than in past
years" because students had “a lot
of other things to do" on the first
day of classwork.

Stiles said between 9 am. and 4
pm. workers distributed L400 tick-
ets, down from last year.

Tom Barnes, who works at one of
the ticket windows at Memorial
Coliseum. said the number of stu-
dents who showed up for the first
hour of distribution was lower than
he normally sees.

In addition to the conflict with
the first day of classes, some stu-
dents said a lack of publicity affect—
ed the turnout.

“I really didn‘t know about it un-
til my roommate told me about it,"
said David Butcher. an undeclared
freshman who stood in line. “Most
people are probably putting it off to
the last minute.”

Stiles said he thought the Wild-

5 keeps many

cats‘ new offensive scheme in-
stalled by Coach Bill Curry would
stir interest, but he said the team
must wm some games to really get
the fans excited.

“Anytime anybody expects any
changes , I‘m sure there is excitev
ment about it and I’m sure people
are curious to see what it’s going to
produce," Stiles said. “But we have
got to start putting some Ws on the
scoreboard. That sells a lot of tick-

To obtain the free tickets, stu-
dents must bring their validated UK
student IDs and activrly cards the
ticket windows at Memorial Coli—

Those who do not have validated
student le yet can receive tickets
for the game by bringing copies of
their class schedules and picture
identification. Students can receive
tickets this way for the Central
Michigan game only.

Students can purchase guest tick-
ets starting today at 9 am. Cost is
$18 for stadium seating and $14 for
end lone seats.

Unclaimed tickets go on sale to
the public Monday. Students still
can pick up available tickets, how-
ever. Monday through Friday from
9 am. to 4 pm. until Sept. 4.

Hurricane damage extensive
along Louisiana, Florida coasts


Associated Press


NEW lBERlA, La. - Hurricane
Andrew carved its way through
plantation country yesterday with
its now-familiar cruelty, throwing
tornadoes like darts at a lOO-mile-
wide target and pumping torrents of
rain at stonn-weary Louisianians.

Damage along the coast “looked
like Kuwait City,“ state Rep.
Hunt Downer said in Houma. Presi-
dent Bush was less descriptive but
equally dramatic.

“The destruction from this storm
goes beyond anything we have
known in recent years," said Bush,
who flew into the heart of the dam-
aged area to inspect the damage as
he did in Florida. The president met
with evacuees at a sports arena in

Andrew was downgraded to a
tropical storm early yesterday after-
noon after its winds dropped below
the hurricane threshhold of 74 mph.
It continued to drench Louisiana
with heavy rain. but it appeared that
its worst was done.

The hurrieane‘s 54-hour U.S.

rampage. the most expensive disas-
ter ever in the country, left I80,(X)0
homeless in Florida —— a refugee
population greater than the city of
Orlando. About 1.5 million people
remained without electricity.

Drinkable water, unspoiled food
and medical relief remained critical
priorities in ravaged neighborhoods
south of Miami. Search teams con-
tinued to explore wreckage for bod-

One death was rcponed in Loui-
siana, a 63-year-old tomado victim
from LaPlace found in rubble yes-
terday. Another death was reported
in the Bahamas, where three other
people died when the storm hit
Sunday. That raised the overall toll
to 20 dead.

Preliminary estimates in Flori-
da‘s Dade County alone put the
damage at $15 billion to $20 bil-
lion. although it will likely take
time for those figures to be veri-

There were no comparable fig-
ures available for Louisiana. But as
widespread as the damage appeared

turned upside down, majestic oak
trees in front of antebellum man-

Dozens were injured and at least
322.000 lost electric power. Seven
people from a sinking tugboat were
plucked from a cauldron of Missis-
sippi River waters; another seven
were rescued from a 70-foot Viet-
namese fishing boat that ran
aground in the Gulf of Mexico.

A dozen barges broke loose from
an Exxon refinery and were cor-

UK student’s family wins $9.5 million in Kentucky lottery


By Karrl Smeal
Contributing Writer


For most people, winning the lot-
tery is just a fleeting thought - but
for one UK student and his family,
that dream is now reality.

James Mims. a political science

sophomore, and his family won the
Kentucky Lottery in July.

Stuart Mims, James' father, won
after playing Quik Pick in Ver-
sailles. Stuart will share half of the
$19 million jackpot with another
winner. After federal and state tax-
es, the Mims family will collect
$361,000 per year for the next 20


While the additional money has
been helpful. James said. it has not
been used for anything extravagant.
Stuart continues to work at Skilton
Paving and Construction in Lexing-
ton and James is searching for a
pan time job.

Iraq will not heed ‘no-fly’ zone,
suggests investigative committee


By Andrew Katell
Associated Press


yesterday it would not heed the al-
lies’ “no-lly zone" but sought to
defuse its showdown with the West
by suggesting that a “committee of
wisemen" be set up to investigate.

At least three other potential
flashpoints between Iraq and the
United Nations were emerging:

Deputy Premier Tariq Aziz
warned U.N. Undersecretary-
General Jan Eliasson that if the
“no-fly zone" is implemented, the
presence of UN. guards in Iraq
“would no longer be tolerated."
The 120 guards have safeguarded
humanitarian deliveries.

-U.N. weapons inspectors, with
whom Iraq has interfered in the
past, scheduled two more visits.

-Iraq rejected a UN. commis‘
sion's proposal for redrawing its
border with Kuwait.

Iraq's UN. envoy. Abdul al-
Amir Al-Anbari, said he offered a
"peaceful initiative“ to the U.S.,
French, Russian and British ambas-
sadors when they informed him of
the allied plan to protect Shiite
Muslims holed up in southern Iraq.
Iraqi warplanes would be barred
from the area. on pain of being shot

“Iraq is calling for the establish-
ment of a so-called ‘wisemen com-
mittee‘ composed mainly from
members of the Security Council,
as well as from members of the re-
gion in order to visit Iraq and to in-
vestigate the situation and report
back to the countries concemed."
aI-Anbari told reporters.

Diplomats said the committee
was designed to check on the condi-
tion of Shiites, whom the United
States and other countries claim
have been attacked by Saddam
Hussein's forces.

AI-Anbari said its purpose would
be to “defuse the crisis as well as

establish the truth as Iraq has been
saying it."

British Ambassador Sir David
Hannay said the Iraqi offer “doesn’t
really address the root of the prob-

“We don't think it will basically
change things," added French Am-
bassador Jean-Bemard Merimee.

The allies scoffed at earlier Iraqi
offers for foreign lawmakers to visit
southern Iraq to see for themselves
the Shiites were all right.

The state-run Iraqi News Agency
and Baghdad Radio said Al-Anbari
proposed that the “wisemen” com-
mittee include representatives of
China, India. Austria, Indonesia,
Morocco, Venezuela, Zimbabwe,
Turkey and Oman.

Al-Anbari stood firm on Bagh-
dad’s earlier rejection of the allies‘
threat to shoot down Iraqi aircraft
flying below the 32nd parallel in
southern Iraq.

He noted that Iraq‘s Council of
Ministers said two days ago that
Iraq would not abide by it.

“We will consider the invasion of
our airspace as an act of aggression
and we would resist it, even by
force. if necessary,” he said.

The confrontation began with
Saddam‘s invasion of Kuwait in
August 1990. Iraq has resisted
scrapping its weapons of mass de-
struction, refused to recognize
U.N.-suggested boundaries with
Kuwait and refused to sell oil and
use some of the money to compen-
sate Gulf War victims.

On the other issues:

-The International Atomic Ener-
gy Agency scheduled a trip by nu-
clear weapons inspectors to Iraq for
Aug. 31. A UN. commission
charged with scrapping Iraq‘s mass

“all pretty cool” about the situation
and have not. as of yet, asked him
for a little extra money.

Quik Pick is one of four on-Iine
computer games, said Kim Meiman
of the Kentucky Lottery. Pick 3. a
daily computerized game, offers
various prize totals up to $10,000.
A second game, Lotto Kentucky,

requires players to match three,
four. five or six numbers out of a
possible 49 for a minimum payoff
of $2 million.

Cash 5, is a pick five game pay-
ing $100,000 if all five numbers
match. Power Ball offers a
SI(X),O(X) prize, but is held in con-
junction with smaller states that do

not have on-line systems.

Meiman said the Lottery Com-
mission also supports several in-
stant cash games as well.

The lottery was originally pro-
moted in Kentucky by former Gov.
Wallace Wilkinson to increase
state funds.



Associated Press


chairman of the Executive Branch
Ethics Commission said yester-
day it would set a good example
for Gov. Brereton Jones and other
officials to pay for their tickets to
university sports events.

Livingston Taylor, a former
state government reporter for The
Courierolournal, said he was not
taking an official position.

"My personal feeling is that I
think it would set a fine example
if executive branch officials paid
for their tickets,” Taylor said. “I
just think it would inspire confi-
dence with the public if they did
so. I’m certainly net saying it's
unethical for them to accept free
tickets at this point."

Jones said in a statement re-
leased yesterday that he felt

obliged to take the tickets.
“I want to make it absolutely

clear to everyone that not only do
I we no conflict in the governor
of Kentucky accepting tickets
to any state university’s sporting
events, but rather, I see it as a
duty of the governor to attend and
support such events.” Jones said.
“I will continue to support the ac-
tivities of the University of Ken—
tucky and all of our state‘s uni-


Official: Jones could pay for tickets, be example

versities and it is absurd to think
that a governor should have to
buy tickets to fulfill his duties as

Lt. Gov. Paul Patton has al-
ready decided to pay for the free
tickets to football and basketball
games that he receives from UK.

Jones’ cabinet secretaries. as
well as several members of his
office staff, receive two tickets

Patton. who plans to run for
governor in 1995. paid on July
27 for four tickets to each con—
test. Patton wanted "to eliminate
any doubt that he was not doing
the proper thing,” said Patton
spokesman Kevin Goldsmith.

Patton also will pay for future
basketball tickets, he said.

For years, UK has given free
sporting event tickets to all 138
state lawmakers and dozens of
government officials, but the

General Assembly‘s Board of
Ethics recently quesuoned that

tice. Last week, on a tie vote,
the board decided to let lawmak-
ers keep them.

UK is to receive nearly $310
million in tax money from the
state this year. The govemor and
legislature determine the amount.

Jones' code of ethics, which he
signed soon after taking office
last December, requires execu-

tive branch officials to disclose
gifts worth more than $1,000. The
code makes no distinction about
the source of the gift unless it is
from a family member.

For this season. two tickets
would be $238 for UK's six home
football games, and $450 for the
15 home basketball games.

That means the governa's
eight free tickets for each borne
football and basketball game are
worth $2,752.

"The ethics code is to disclose
private benefits.” said Frank Ash-
ley, the governor's press secre-
tary. "the UK tickets come from
a public agency.”

Some members of Jones’ staff
have decided to pay UK for the
tickets, but Ashley declined to-
identifv them.

Also yesterday, Chief Justice
Robert Stephens said members of
the Supreme Court have decided
to pay for the tickets or decline

Being just like Mike
not as easy as it looks


By Jim lett

CHICAGO —— Being Michael
Jordan is not as easy as it once was.
nor nearly as easy as you might
think. Even he is finding it difficult
these days.

“Mentally." Jordan said. “I‘m
drained. At least as far as basketball
is concerned. I‘ve been going non-
stop from last fall until the Dream
Team finished, what now, two
w eeks ago‘.’

“I need some time to rejuvenate.
to renew the mental challenge. I
don't see myself going to training
camp. I don‘t want to step up there
half mentally ready.

“I don‘t see myself staying out
until January. either. But right
now." he said. “l don‘t know when
'hat’s going to be."

It sounds like whimpering when
grown men making millions of dol-
lars playing kids~ games say ~— on
the eve of the season. yet ~ they‘re
not ready to go back to work.

Jordan‘s case. though. merits a
hearing. And it ought to be before
the tongues start wagging. which
they will do it‘a month from now he
is not back tn the Chicago Bulls’
fold and at the center of the NBA

Jordan is tired from I l months of
constant pounding on nearly every
part of his body. But that’s not what
is bothering him. In his first inter-
view since the Olympics, he never
mentioned that once. And it's not
like he is tired of the game. either.

Just last Sunday. Jordan wan-
dered away during a visit to his in-
laws’ on the South Side and
dropped in unannounced at a near-
by playground. We know this only
because someone from the neigh-
borhood ran home for a video cam-
era. then ran the film over to a local
television station.

In one memorable sequence aired
the same evening. we saw Jordan
being stripped of the ball. hustling
to get it back and then dunking.
Very authoritatively. It made clear
that he was not tired of competition.
either. His opponents. in this case,
were teen-agers.

No. what Jordan is probably tired
of is this running public opinion
poll on his life. on what he should
and should not do. Anyone who re-
sponds to challenges as supremely
as he does must have both pride and
contrariness in his nature. And so it
would not surprise if Jordan is chaf-
ing under all the criticism and the
demands heaped on his slender
shoulders since last fall.

He flashed that contrary side just
before the season by skipping the
NBA champions‘ visit to the Rose
Gardent. He did it again by clam-
ming up for a few days after the
book “The Jordan Rules" first made
headlines and then again when his
sizable personal checks turned up in
the pockets of known golf hustlers
and con men.

You might even say (though Jor-
dan won‘t) that his 3-point torchirtg
of Clyde Drexler for one incredible
35-point half in the NBA finals was
simply his way of making a point.

Still. everything might have been
all right tor this season if matters
had ended there.

Coerced into playing with the
Dream Team by the very same pub
lic opinion poll that was narrowing
his choices everywhere else, Jordan
responded with mirthless profes-
sionalism. He wouldn't take over a
game the way he might in the NBA
because that would be showboating
and snubbing his celebrated team-
mates. He didn‘t say much away
from the games because the ques-
tions seemed to him to be about the
wrong things.

“1 knew there wasn’t anything to
gain financially. I never got any
compensation from any of the com-
panies I worked for. I don't need
more deals. And I already had a
gold medal. I didn‘t join up for an-
other one.

“My incentive." Iordan said,
“was the opportunity to play with
Bird and Magic, who were on their
way out, and all these other guys.
To see how they practiced and pre-
pared for challenges.

“I wanted to see for myself,
where did they get the motivation?
Did they practice hard, or serious-
ly? How did they get up for games?
The way it turned out. the games
were secondary and the practices
were the real thing. Sometimes the
level of competition was unbelieva-
ble. Just that made it worthwhile."

There were other things, of
course. Card games. traveling. talk.
ing. joking and the time Drexler
brought two left shoes to practice
and pretended nothing was wrong
until Charles Barkley caught on and
needled him mercilessly.

In fact. Jordan brought back plen-
ty of things to laugh about and a
few to be proud about as well. But
there were plenty of regrets, too:
the luxury hotel flap; the you-
better-wear-this-suit-or-else flap;
the whole commercialism flap. And
he still blames Dream Team orga-
nizers for those.

“They knew what they were ge
