18 in Extension
to lose their jobs
in restructuring


By Brian Bennett
Senior Staff Writer


Eighteen employees in the Uni-
versity Extension program will lose
their jobs July 1, although adminis-
trators say they are committed to
finding new positions for those to
be laid of f .

As part of the Universitywide re-
alignment and restructuring plan to
handle recent budget cuts, Universi-
ty Extension will be divided into
credit and non~credit programs, the
latter of which will be transferred to
Lexington Community College.

Along with the transfer, 18 posi-
tions in non-credit programs will be
eliminated. The 18 who will lose
their jobs were informed last week
by letter, said Philip Greasley, dean
of University Extension.

The majority of the jobs to be lost
will come from the community edu-
cation department of University Ex—
tension, Greaslcy said.

One program that will be espe-
cially hit hard will be the UK
D0wntown Training Center, which
will lose all four full-time employ-
ees, including Adrienne McMahan,
director of the center.

“I‘m very heartbroken.“ McMa-
han said. “We've worked hard for
this program. But I understand the
University's position and its rea-
sons for the decision."

McMahan, who has been with the
program three years and has
worked at UK for 20 years, said she
doesn‘t feel bitterness about the de-

“My background is in higher edu-
cation so i know how these
things work," she said. “Still, I‘m
very disappointed this had to hap-
pen with a good department."

The 18 employees have been
promised hiring priority for other
jobs in the University. But the cur-

rent hiring freeze imposed by UK
President Charles Wethington in re-
sponse to budget cuts worries
McMahan, who said there have
been no ”written promises" that
those laid off will be given jobs.

“1 know there are some openings,
but it does concern me," she said.

Greasley said it may take some
time to locate positions for the em-

“Individual jobs across the Uni-
versity are opening all the time," he
said. “I hope all of these people
have found suitable employment by
July 1. But I don't expect everyone
to leave here June 30 and have a
different jobluly 1."

Wethington said UK will do its
best to find new jobs for the em-
ployees and that jobs may be creat—
ed when the program is transferred
under LCC. He said Chancellor for
the Lexington Campus Robert He-
menway would work out the de-
tails. Hemcnway could not be
reached for comment last night.

African students Witness racial tension at UK


By Graham Shelby
Senior Staff Writer


It started at a funeral.

UK student Alex Mutonyi said
one of his biggest lessons about
black life in America came while he
attended a funeral last year.

“There was a small girl," the
Kenyan said. He smiled at the girl,
who was white, and she backed
away, holding onto her mother.
“You could see the fright in the
eyes of the child,” he said.

After he spoke in his accented
voice, the woman made a motion to
her daughter as if to say, “It‘s all
right. He's OK.“

The message was subtle but clear
and, according to Mutonyi and oth-
er black African students, very typi-

Council to make decision
on tuition increase today


By Brian Bennett
Senior Stall Writer


The state Council on Higher Ed-
ucation will decide today how
much more students will pay for
their education next year.

The student body presidents of
the eight state universities will
make a final push against a tuition
increase by presenting petitions
and delivering a speech at the
meeting, which is expected to be-
gin around 11 am. at Kentucky
State University in Frankfort, Ky.

The council will approve one of
the following measures:

-Option one would keep the
rates already approved for the
1993-94 school year, which would
mean about a $40 increase per se-
mester at UK.

-Option two would allow the
council to set tuition annually in-
stead of biennially. Under option
two, tuition would rise $100 per se-
mester at UK for 1993-94.

-Option three calls for tuition to





be based at benchmark institutions
and raise tuition $180 per semester
at UK.

The presidents of the eight state
universities endorsed option two at
the end of the council’s November
meeting. The council held three
public forums and a statewide call-
in show last month to get the input
of students and their families.

Despite near unanimity of stu-
dents at the forums against tuition
increases, top council officials re-
peatedly have indicated that option
two would be approved.

The student body presidents tried
to continue the lobbying effort after
the forums by sending a letter to
the council stating their support of
option one.

McCloskey says Guard’s C-l30 crash
will lead to more access to information


Associated Press

EVANSVILLE, Ind. —— Thc fatal
crash of a Kentucky Air National
Guard C-l30 transport plane last
year is expected to result in new
rules broadening access to informa-
tion on military crashes, says ch.
Frank McCloskcy (D-lnd.).

McCloskcy said he expects the
Pentagon to release broader disclo-
sure rules within two months based
on a section hc inserted in last
year‘s dcfcnsc bill.

McCloskcy. a member of the
House Armed Services Committee.
said he was concerned family mem-
bers of the 16 people who died in
the Feb. 6. 1992. crash would not
find out the true cause.

The new rcgulullons wrll “basi-
cally mean that about all informa-
tion that was not of a legitimately


classified naturc would be released
to the public,“ McCloskcy told the
Evansville Courier.

While the defense bill with
McCloskcy‘s section was signed
into law Oct. 7, the Pentagon has
180 days to write the regulations
needed to satisfy the law, McClos-
kcy said.

The military currently generates
two reports aftcr crashes —-— a public
accident report and a safely report.
The safety report, which includes
opinions on the accident's cause. is
not released to the public.

Air Force investigators cvcnlual-
ly dctcrmincd insufficient air speed
caused the Evansville crash. The
plane‘s tail section hit the rear of
Jojo's restaurant. sending flames
shooting over the Drury Inn hotel.

McCloskcy was allowed to see
the confidential safety report on the

crash but could not disclose its con-

Under the new rules, the leaders
of the Senate or House armed scr-
viccs committees would still be al-
lowed to request to see the private
report. The law also would still al-
low thc military to withhold infor-
mation which could “compromise
national security" or undermine the
ability of investigators to continue.

However. the law also would rc-
quirc military officials other than
those conducting the investigation
to determine what goes into the
public report.

The law also would stipulate that
public statements of causes or fac-
tors leading to the accident can‘t be
used as evidence in lawsuits against
the government and aren‘t consid-
ered an admission of guilt.

arts, crafts

The Kentucky Gallery of Fine
Crafts & Art opened a New Mem-
bers Exhibit of mixed media on
Thursday, featuring the work of
nine artists from Kentucky and

The exhibit contained a wide
variety of materials: clay sculp-
ture, fiber art. oil paintings and
vine sculpture. The vine sculpture
pieces by Debra 1.. llille were
original. consisting of dried vines
that look like twigs wrapped into
different shapes. Animal bones,
feathers and weathered wood
were also incorporated iitto the

llille said she began working
with natural materials like vines
because “I live in the woods,
(zutd) l wrutted to find something
that I could do at home iii my
own studio." She collects materi-
als like bones arid feathers lll the
woods near lici home in Berea.

Another reason llille said she
uses orgiutic materials is because
she feels strongly about protect-
iitg tltc environment.

“1 really believe lll reusing iUltl
recycling." she said.

llille titled her studio "lizu‘tlt
Spirit Studio“ iii honor of the nat-
ural spirit of her work. She said
hopes people will leant respect
for the earth through her work
arid will “help to heal it instead of
hann it."

In contrast. 'l‘eresa Kearn's
work serves a lighter purpose.
Kcarn‘s ceramic plates are deco—
rated with whimsical. humorous
designs. ()ne plate depicts two
blue dogs leaping over each other
while milkshakes roller skate
along the edges.

Keam said her goal as an artist
is to “take the everyday function-
al things people use and try to
bring a little life to it. a little fun."

Kearn did itot always want to
be art artist. “I grew up wanting to
be an archaeologist. then l ended
up being zui artist. I decided I
wzutted to make the imit‘acts rath-




er thzut find them." she said.

Bonnie Meyer Day also took an
unusual route to an. Both her par-
ents were taxidermists. but she
said she thought it was a “natural
progression to work with animals
in clay."

ller clay wildlife sculptures are
detailed and realistic. The rhino
head arid cheetah head look au-
thentic and, of course. are mount-
ed on the wall like taxidermists‘

llille, Kearn and Day are joined



This untitled piece of art by Owensboro, Ky., native Mary
Anne Bona is one of the works displayed at the exhibit.

l was ready to be disappointed.

'lhere they were on the cover.
Four English pretty boys who had
picked up instruments and made
the horrible mistake of thinking
they had actual musical talent. I'd
seen (and hated) dozens of similar
“musicians" before.

They have a reasonably catchy
song making the rounds on late-
night MTV. So what? All that
proved was that they‘d accidentally
stumbled upon a decent hook and
managed to build a song around it.
Plenty of other bands have had sim-
ilar luck before: They‘re called
one-hit wonders.

Did I just describe Starclub'.’

No, not really. Though Starclub
is less likely to be art integral part
of music history than liMl" is, it‘s

potential to be a terrific singles
