It was only five years ago titat Lt.
Col. Oliver Nortlt testified under
condition of immunity before the
US. Congress about the nature of
his role in what became known as
the Iran—contra Affair.

Last night North took the spot-
light again — not before Congress.
but before the customers of The
Family Bookstore in Fayette Mall.

North spent and more than 90
minutes signing his new nationwide
best seller, “Under Fire — An
American Story."

Fans, customers and people who
were “just curious to see what the
crowd was doing" waited in line to
see North and applauded when he
made his appearance.

The hearings are history, but
North’s memories of the affair still
are fresh — however, the words
have changed from “not recalling"
to “not remembering."

When asked if he had raised any
money in Kentucky for the Contras,
North’s face became stoic and he

said: "This is going to sound unusu-

Many UK students waited in the
line to get autographs and a quick
handshakes from North.

John Calpacs. an undeclared
freshman, said he didn't mind wait-
ing in line for North sign a copy of
his book.

Calpacs bought the book last
week in anticipation of North’s vis-

“I've always been a big fan of
Oliver North. I like the book. It‘s a
good book if you want to under-
stand a little bit better what goes on
(in politics)," he said.

When their turn in line came to
meet North many people told him
they would vote for him if he dc-
cides to run for national of lice.

North laughed at their remarks
and assured them he was looking at
spending time with his family right
now, not running for public office.

North said: “There‘s only five
votes that count in the election l‘m
running in ~—- that‘s husband, father
and my household. It‘s a contested

going to win." he said. “i have no
plans to nm for any office.”

North said he has visited over 100 I

bookstores. and his book “is still a
best seller on both the New York
Times list and the Christian Book-
sellers list."

Bill I-Iarman, manager of the
Family Bookstore, said more than
500 books were sold last night.

He also commented on the up-
coming Presidential elections.

“I think it's going to be a good
chance for Americans to choose. I
sure hope they vote unlike the l988
and I990 (elections), when they
didn’t bother to do so in large num-
bers." he said.

“The most important thing about
the process that's ongoing right now

Wilkinson opinion

The state Supreme Court yester-
day released the reasoning behind
its December ruling not to grant an
injunction to prevent former Gov.
Wallace Wilkinson from serving on
the UK Board of Trustees.

While this opinion did not rule on
the merits of former Attorney Gen-
eral Fred Cowan‘s case against Wil-

lated that the case would be decided
in Wilkinson’s favor.

“A doubtful case should await a
trial on the merits," said the opinion
of the 5-1 majority.

Justices Dan Jack Combs, Joseph
Lambert, Charles Reynolds. Thom-
as Spain and Donald Wintersheimer
were in the majority.

Justice Charles Leibson issued a
dissenting opinion. Chief Justice
Robert F. Stephens excused himself
from the case because he is a mem«
ber of the UK Board of Trustees.

Finicky, not fancy,Wildcats

to face Western Kentucky
/1 /i [1 /i /i A

Sports Editor

Frenzied senior point guard Sean
Woods unfurled a fury of fist on the
Formica table sitting before a top-
pish sports writer Wednesday night
in Rupp Arena that fired~up the UK
faithful and fostered the feeling that
UK’s new-found ferociousness may
soon become its forte.

And friends, it just might be for

Woods‘ informal visit with the
sports writer came with 5:01 re-
maining in the second half of UK's
game against the Alabama Crimson
Tide. He had just hit a layup and
been fouled by Alabama guard Elli-
ot Washington.

Although Woods missed his en-
suing free throw, his frenzy was not
fleeting. For a Wildcat grabbed the
rebound and gave Woods a second
chance to score. Nearly 20 feet
from the basket, Woods hit a three-
point shot off an assist from senior
forward John Pelphrey. His five-
point fiasco furthered UK’s lead to
15. When the final buzzer sounded
live minutes later. UK had framed a
107—83 win over the Tide.

“That was a very intense ball-
game to say the least,” UK coach
Rick Pitino said afterward. “We had
to do battle because they are a very
physical basketball team."

Woods, who finished with 16
points, two rebounds and six as-
sists, has found that intensity this
season. His fortune has an'ived be—
cause he has adopted a new formula
for the role of point guard. An ap-
proach perhaps, more finicky than

No longer does Woods force low»
percentage shots. No longer does he
try to fabricate plays and points that
are not feasible. These fanciful feats
are history. Woods lets his game
flow naturally. And UK is forever

Thanks in part to Woods, the No.
19 Wildcats are now 17-5 overall,
7—3 in the Southeastern Conference
and in first place of the confer-
ence’s Eastern Division.

tive career-high games. He scored
17 points in UK’s win against Au-
burn and had 26 Wednesday against
the Tide. And like Woods. his suc-
cess flows more from the finicky

really coming on in practice." Piti-
no said Wednesday night. “You
saw it Gimel Martinez."

UK fans also saw five Wildcats
reach double figures. Jamal Mash-
bum had 17 points while his team-
mates Richie Farmer, Deron Feld—

and funk that enables them to have
a truly unique live show. When the
band returns to Lexington tonight it
will be promoting its fourth and lat-
est release. Stop The Sun, I Want To
Go Home.

Stop the Sun blends the styles
that are predominant on the band's
last two releases. From the folk psy-
chedelia of the Hazel's Wreath. the
band progressed to the harder—edge
funk of their last release Ilot Choc-
olate Massage, which guitarist
John Hamilton said resulted from
their extensive touring practice.

“When Hazel's Wreath came out

Tiny Lights was primarily a studio
.band." Hamilton said. “But after the
amount of touring we've done you
develop a sense of what the crowds
respond to, and that came out With
Hot Chocolate Massage. 1 think the
new record is not as light-hearted as
Our last one — it’s kind of a combi-
nation of Hot Chocolate and lla-
zel’s Wreath."

Hamilton said that the group’s in-
corporation of a cello into its sound
-— something that hm become one
of Tiny Lights' eclectic trademarks
— stemmed from a personal deci-
sion he made when forming the

Beatles' records,” he said. “And l'd
always liked the cello and its sound.
I think it fits in really well: It's
higher in pitch than the bass and
just lower than the guitar, so it has a

Tiny lights is also known for us-
ing a wide array of other instru—
ments beside the cello during their
live performances, which Hamilton

said happened purely by accrdent.

“It just happened," he said. “I
think having a cello player (Stuart
Hake) pushed the rest of us. It
wasn’t intentional. (Vocalist) Don-

the fourth grade and (bassist) Dave
(Dreiwitz) had played trumpet. it
just worked out that way."

Hamilton said that money and
success is not an issue for his band

A long time ago. rock 'n’ roll
was about the basics — a guitar.
has evolved into a multitude of
categories and divisions.

So when three guys get togeth-
er with nothing but the basics
again it almost can be consid-
ered something new.

The Blueberries are three such
musicians who are about the ba-

“I’m just a big fan of straight
4/4 rhythm rock ’n' roll,"said
Blueberries guitarist Otto Hel-

“There‘s not too many bands
these days that do that. I think
we‘re the only band in Lexing-
ton that comes close.”

Formed in 1991, the Blueber-

the region and quickly develop-

the now-defunct 330 High. Hel-
muth and Chad Ward were no
strangers to Lexington‘s music

After that group‘s demise.
they continued to play together
and eventually hooked up with
drummer Andy Mason.

The trio then formed what is
now the Blueberries' sound.

“This band is a rhythm band;


Blueberries taking
rock back to basics

there is no lead." Helmuth said.
“l'm not a lead guitarist. The
way we play together is real
cool. I just play basic rhythms
and Andy and Chad just play off
each other. I think without a lot
of soloing we can still get a lot

“And I think the songs defi-
nitely stand on their own," Ward

The Blueberries also have
made a name for themselves
from their live performances.

“A lot of people just go to a
bar to talk. which is cool,” Hel-
muth said. “But we want to
make them listen to us, and
sometimes the only way to do
that is to just go nuts and make a
spectacle of yourself.

“We don’t want to play clubs
for the rest of our life. We want
to make albums and get our mu-

quit our day jobs and just make

The band definitely seems to
be on the way. Their song “Scaf-
fold Cane Road" was on the lo-
