An idea that was sent in
via e-mail was to give
ideas for what to do
with the Kernel when
you are finished
reading it. Well,
besides cutting out
LOC and framing it,
here are some other
ideas you could use.

Fly far, far away.

Find a very high place on
campus like
Patterson Office
Tower or one of the
towers on South
Campus. After folding
the front page into a
lift creating device (a
paper airplane for
those not into the
whole theory of the
lift thing) find a way
to get to the roof or
an open window. This
is not supported by
the Kernel, those
afraid of heights or
people without an
inner ear for balance.


Toss out window and
watch. For added
enjoyment, put
confetti or gas in the
tail. For even greater
enjoyment, light the
gas (again. not
endorsed by the
Kernel, firefighters or
severe burn victims).

Papier maché

May require saving more
than one previously
used Kernel. Make a
frothy bath of flour
and water and other
stuff that goes into a
papier maché
mixture and dip
strips of paper into
it. Find something
really cool you would
like to make a model
of and go to it.
Suggestions include a
larger than life
telephone or toilet. Is
it a gift? Make a life-
size model of your
significant other.
Even if it looks like
crap, remind them it
is the thought that

Spit balls

Find a straw at any on
campus eatery. Make
little bails out of
Kernel usrng finger
dexterity and spit.
Aim and shoot.
Targets may include
squirrels, birds,
teachers or windows.
Added fun, try to
write your name on
the window with

Recycle it!

There are many places
on or around campus
where you can
recycle newspaper. I

to any state-funded school. Besides ntaking

would inspire more students to work harder
and cut dovm on racial profiling and quotas.

“I think equal opportunity should mean
equal opportunity. We shouldn't discrimi-

Gore hopes that by making ttution tax

Using food to bring
nationalities together

Taste this: Lexington church to host a
celebration of diversity, social acceptance

By Travis Hubbard


It is often easy to see that
Lexington is a diverse city and
one local church wants to use
food to embrace all ethnic
groups and nationalities in the

Trinity Baptist Church In-
ternational Ministries plans to
host a “Taste of the World" celr
ebration of diversity later this
month. The church hopes di-
versity awareness and social
acceptance can be achieved
through a fellowship dinner
and informational booths.

The church will provide
an assortment of ethnic foods
and booths from several coun-
tries in their fellowship hall.

Donna Vande Kieft, an in
tern for Trinity Baptist Min-
istries and head of the “'I‘astt

the program is much different
from what many churches do.

"Our emphasis is not to
evangelize." she said "But we
want people to come together

important part of the church.

his church was open to all peo-
ple who have no church home.

"If there are folks who are

would like them to give Trini»

Robison said the church is
one of the most culturally di—

ple from foreign nations into
the community and their con-

language does not have to be a
barrier for cultures, She said
the event can help people open

up and understand those from
different backgrounds,

“We want to make every-
one from the Lexington area a
welcome part of the communi-
ty." she said. “Often we expect
people to adapt to our culture.
but we want to encourage em
bracing different heritages."

This is the second year the
church has held the celebra-
tion. Last year the event at-
tracted over 125 people. This
year. the church expects about
200 guests to attend. There is
no admission fee, but the

Film worth looking

Oscar possibility: Problems with the movie score and the logic
don't outshine great performances and a moving storyline

By Matt Mulcahoy

Intelligent moviegoers can spot a phony from
a mile away. Cinematic Holden (.‘auifield‘s can
easily snitf out when a movie tries to push their
emotional buttons. But when those emotions
come unsolicited, movies can really connect with
their audience and truly move people.

Pay It Forward is one such genuine film.

The story is about a troubled young boy and
his relationship with his teacher. But this is not
another Stand and Deliver or To Sir Ii'ith Lore.
Pay It Forward isn't just about the relationship
between young Trevor McKinney (Haley .loei ()s-
ment) and his social studies teacher Eugene Sir

monet (Kevin Spacey). it‘s about the power of

kindness to truly change the world

Trevor‘s mother is a recovering alcoholic
working two seedy jobs on the Las Vegas strip to
support her son. Her no-account husband (Jon
Bon Jovi in a small part) has left town again and
his return is far from imminent.

Simonet gives Trevor an assignment that
will forever change both of their lives. He tells
his students they must come up with sortie idea

that will change the world for the better. Most of




threat... 2;.



the students come up with the same old same old.
but not Trevor

Trevor comes up with the idea of “pay it for-
ward." He starts a web of goodness. like a chain
letter of selfless deeds. it starts with Trevor doing
three acts of kindness. The act has to be some-
thing big. something the person couldn‘t do for
himself. in return. that person must perfortn
three ntore acts of kindness and so on and so on
until the world is a better place.

Director Mimi Leder. whose most known ef-
forts are Deep Impact and The Peacemaker. does
an excellent job of steering the movie away from
oversentimentality. This script could've very -
easily been turned into a shallow. manipulative
movie. but Leder‘s sincerity of vision comes

The cast is also excellent. Spacey and ilunt
both give dramatically emotional peril)rmances.
but Haley Joel ()sment is the film's center and
gives a performance even better than the over
rated raves he received for The Sixth Sense. l‘d
have to honestly say i have never seen a better
child actor titan this kid.

Pay it Forward does have a few problems.
The subplot. about a reporter (.iay .\iohr> track
ing the phenomenon from l.os Angeles. couid’ve
been better developed. and the last scene is a bit

so tiice'.’
