UK undergrads ace 8.5 percent tuition hike

Managing Editor

dergraduates will face an 8.5 per-
cent tuition increase during the
next four years, according to a tui-
tion schedule approved yesterday
by the state Council on Higher Ed-

The schedule, passed during the
council‘s November session, calls
for UK’s undergraduate tuition to
increase by 3.4 percent in 1991-92.
That would raise the cost of attend-
ing one semester of classes by 530
for an iii-state student.

In 1993-94, the schedule calls
for a 4.8 percent jump in under-
graduate tuition at UK, bringing
the tab for a full semester of class-
es to $880 for Kentucky residents.

The cost for students who reside
outside the commonwealth will be

“We do not build our tuition

Rather, tuition rates are set us-

the commonwealth, Cox said.

He also said any future cuts in
state appropriations will not affect
tuition increases.

The budget ax, however, may at-
fect a proposed tuition reduction at
Lexington Community College.

LCC students traditionally have
paid higher tuition than students in
UK's 13 other community colleg—
es. Kentucky residents attending
LCC currently pay $810 a semes-
ter. compared with $340 at the oili-
er community colleges.

CHE delays approving budget request

Associate Editor

LOUISVILLE, Ky. —— The state
Council on Higher Education em—
phasized pragmatism over idealism
yesterday in determining the needs
of Kentucky universities in the
next biennium.

The council was scheduled to
vote on a recommendation that the
eight state universities receive ()0
percent of formula funding in the
first year of the biennium and 100
percent funding in the second,

Citing the state‘s financial vvoes.
the CHE decided to have the uni-
versities and the CHF. staff come
tip with four other requests based
on different funding levels, which
would show the impact of each

Council member Kevin llable

for I00 percent funding is “not rea-

The council will meet at the end
of the month to make a formal
budget request. which will include
funding at the four lC\\l\ as vvcll
as at full funding.

The request will go to the Gen-
eral Assembly and the governor,
then into the state biennial budget.

The fottr funding levels:

-at Silt. million more than the
current recurring base appropria»
tion from the state. This vvould
offset the amount cut from the uni-
versities‘ current operating bud-

-at‘3~16.7 million in 1002—0? and
at 905 b’ million in 1091-04. This
would cover “basic needs." which
are defined as fixed costs and sala»
ry increases of i percent.

-at 85% percent of formula lurid-
ing by the end of the biennium

-at 00 percent tunding bv the

end of the biennium.

Jones’ campaign costs
highest in state history

Assocrated Press

FRANKFURT, Ky. N If there is
one constant in the often nutty
world of Kentucky politics. it is that
money talks.

This year, it lairly shouts.

The six tnain candidates who
sought the Republican and Demo-
cratic nominations this year spent
$3,703,641. The four Democrats
alone spent $11,548,947. The bud~
get for the entire city of Danville
this year is $10,284,132.

Lt. Gov. Brereton Jones spent
$4,008,074 to win the Democratic
primary in May. The budget for the
city of Berea this year is

Compare that to Louisiana, where
there are 400,000 more people than
in Kentucky and where politics is,
historically, even more corrupt.

In the recent primary in Louisia-
na, where Republicans and Demo
crats alike ran in an open primary,
incumbent Gov. Buddy Roemer
spent about $2 million to finish
third. It was deemed a remarkable
sum for the state‘s election. The two
men who finished first arid second.
former (iov. Edwin Edwards and
former Klansman David Duke. re-
spectively, each spent about half as
much as Roetner.

In other words. the top three fin-
ishers in the Louisiana primary
spent, in total. alxiut as much as
Jones did all by himself. Roemer
would have finished a poor fourth
among Kentucky gubernatorial


(i ll berrtzifofial Catfipaign





And the contribution limits in
Louisiana are higher. IndiViduals in
Louisiana may contribute $5,000 to
their favonte candidate. In Ken-
tucky it's $4,000. Political action
committees in Kentucky have the
same limit. In Lomsiana, the PAC
limit is $50,000.

What did Kentucky's gubernato-
rial candidates get for all that mon-

ln Jones‘ case. he got 184,703
votes, or 33 I .70 per vote.

That was better than Martha Wil~
kinson. who spent 82509502 and
didn‘t get a single vote. She
dropped out before the primary.

The May primary did prov c one
thing that has become almost a
truism in Kentucky: You have to
spend to \\ Ill.

Like Jones, Larry Hopkins tar
outspent the competition to uni the
Republican primary. Hopkins spent
SIS-12,737. larry Forgy spent

derstandablc because Larry liorgy

“When I left school. originally I

Grilfiths‘ situation is common for

The chances of making a life for

UK soccer coach Sam Wooten
credits Griffiths‘ biggest troubles to
adaptation to the new environment
rather than a new style of soccer.

“He's a pretty versatile kid."
Wooten said. “The hardest thing for

this year. too. There‘s always an ad
justment to the different diet we
have here. We've got him on a
good fitness program and he's real—

Playing European soccer devel-
oped Griffiths into a solid striker.


UK striker David Grittiths fights for ball control with an opposing defender. The sophomore trom Dublin,
Ireland. played at Transylvania last season before translering to UK this tall.

but Wooten said there has never
been a situation in which a foreign
player completely dominated the
American competition.

“I have yet to have a foreign kid
come over here and totally domi-
nate the American players." Woo-
ten said. “1.'.sually. it they are that
good they enter the professional
ranks over there."

Griffiths, however, had just that
opportunity in Ireland. He was of!
fered an apprenticeship with a
semi-professional team called the
Shamrock Rovers in a system simi»
lar to American minor~lcaguc base-

The apprenticeship meant that he
would play for the team for free for
an unspecified period of time. They
were no guarantees. and Griffiths
needed a commitment. The idea
was that if he were good enough to
make a pro team then. that he still
would be good enough, it not bet-
ter. after four years of college soc~

Outside of playing for I‘ls'. Grit-
liths also coaches soccer 111 the
Kentucky Kickers Soccer Club. He
is accredited to coach in Ireland as
well as the timed States He said
coaching is definitely in his future.

“I've been coaching since I was

17," he said. “1 get along great with
the kids. Of course. the accent helps
an awful lot because they have to
listen more attentively because
you‘ve got a different accent. Plus.
they respect you more when you're
European because they know that
Europe is the hotbed of soccer."

Griffiths said he takes the empha-
sis off winning and gets his team to
focus on the enjoyment of simply
playing the game.

“The way 1 coach is that 1. first of
all. make them enjoy the game."
Griffiths said. "It's all about enjoy»
ing it rather than jiist winning. winA
niiig, winning. The be-all, end-all
isn't winning. It's playing well. A
lot of coaches sacrifice an awful lot
of the kids development because
they want to win ev ery game."

While Griffiths is interested in
coaching high school soccer when
he graduates. Wooten said he push-
es his players to higher aspirations.

“I tell them to set their goals
higher and think about coaching at
the college level.” Wooten said
"Dave has the potential. He‘s very
personable. 1 try to fuel (interest in
the coaching professiont in people
who want to win. '1 flats something
that has to be there. You can‘t

Belsak and Ramsey fuse musical talents

Staff Critic

Jerry Belsak and Mike Ramsey.
Lexington music circles know these
two musicians as accomplished solo

in January of this year, the talent-
ed artists combined forces to create
one oi Lexington‘s finest duets.

Belsak, a classically trained gui-
tarist, has performed in Lexington
nightclubs since the mid-‘70s. Ram-
sey is a completely self-taught mu—
sician except for one year of guitar
lessons at age I0.

Belsak and Ramsey perform well
together. Their individual creativity
is enhanced as each artist provides
musical inspiration for the other.
the creativity between the artists
appears limitless.

Speaking about their fusion, Ram»
sey said: “I became extremely im-

pressed with Jerry's playing style
and technique. We talked one night
after he finished a solo perfor-
mance at Lynagh's, and the rest is

Belsak said of the type of music
they play, “We do singer-
songwriter stuff and finger-style
guitar instrumental material from
Leo Kottke to Michael Hedges. Ac-
tually we cover a broad range of
material from finger-style acoustic
to electric rock."

During a recent performance,
Belsak played mainly acoustic 12-
string guitar with added electric ac-
cents from his Fender Stratocaster.
Ramsey took care of vocals and
rhythm guitar.

Launching into “Knockin’ On
Heaven's Door," the pair combined
perfect timing with accomplished
musicianship to create a perfor-
mance that must be heard.

Belsak and Ramsey customize
each set to the audience. The mood
and response of the audience dictate
how much energy artists expend.

“We never use a set list," Ramsey
said. “One night, the crowd was
particularly excited and Jerry did a
(Jimi) Hendrix-styled version of
‘The Star Spangled Banner‘ — the
crowd went wild."

Chemistry between the two was
evident as the second set began.
They performed the Beatles’ “Nor-
wegian Wood.” Ramsey executed
perfect rhythm guitar and vocals as
Belsak harmonized while supplying
beautiful lZ-string accents. The per-
formance was flawless.

Energy levels began to rise as
Belsak and Ramsey performed
“Tell Me To My Face," by Dan Fo-
gclberg. Belsak‘s fingers were a
blur on his lZ-string as Ramsey’s
rhythm guitar blended to make this
