Houses not just h


By Stephen D. Trimble
Assistant News Editor


The two red-brick homes that sit
on Bannett Court are not typical
eampus-area apartment buildings.

Counselors take the place of
landlords, and 15 women recover-
ing from substance addiction take
the place of a dozen or more col-
lege students.

The apamnents, which sit behind
The Mad Hatter on South Lime-
stone Street, are a place for mothers
to recover slowly — sometimes for
up to a year — from drug and alco-
hol addiction.

The project's name — Chrysalis
House —— is a simple analogy of its

purpose. Chrysalis occurs as a but-
terfly breaks from the cocoon it en-
tered as a caterpillar.

Every other weekend, the chil-
dren of Chrysalis House residents
visit. it‘s a time of joy and a time
of uneasiness, said Donna Lowen-
thal, Chrysalis child development

For the mothers, it's a time to
learn how to be parents. For the
children, most of whom are placed
in foster homes or with relatives,
its time to start living normally
with a sober parent. Fathers seldom
are seldom seen.

"The children haven't been used
to discipline," Lowenthal said,
partly because the mothers them-

selves did not have “normal” child-
hood role models. “(The women)
really don't know what it means to

Each biweekly visit with their
children leads the mothers toward
final recovery from drugs and alco-
hol. Lowenthal said. Chrysalis
counselors stress consistency dur-
ing the visits. The activities —
shopping, playing — remain the
same, and the house remains the

Six architecture students have
melded mediums to form an ex-
hibit commemorating the demol-
ished buildings of Lexington's
Ben Synder block.

The exhibit has transformed a
rectangular room on the second
floor of Pence Hall into a maze
of memorabilia ranging from
photographs and architectural di-
agrams of the destroyed build-
ings to a large platform con-
structed with materials salvaged
from the actual structures.

“It was a devastation that these
buildings, which had no reason to
be torn down, were destroyed,"
said third-year student Kristina
Cantwell, who contribuited to the
exhibit. “They have molested the
city and taken away its heritage."

Carol Buhrmann, an architec-
ture professor, began organizing
the collective in November of
last year when she noticed how



Ron Jackson, a filth-year architecture student, and five others have constructed an exhibit
to raise awareness of the destruction of downtown buildings and culture.

The Death ofa City’

many students were incorporating
the plight of the block into their

“About 30 percent of the (archi-
tecture school's) student body doc-
umented the demolition," she said.
“Each student has a different take
(on the issue)"

Cantvvell said her bi-level plat-
form piece represents the “laby-
rinth" created by homeless people
who dwelt in the Main Street build-
ings before their destruction earlier
this year.

“I studied the floor plans and
went inside," Cantwell said. “It
was amazing —— (the homeless)
never had to leave the buildings to
move through the whole block."

As a whole, Buhrmann said the
installation is an effort to raise
awareness of the endangered status
of the downtown area.

“l’m really concerned with cit-
ies," she said. “There will hopeful-
ly come a time when we value
downtown. The city is a place for
all types of people to come togeth-
er. it is not just a place for buying



and business."

Buhrmann said she is discou-
raged by a proposal to use the
former Ben Snyder block as the
location for a new court house.
rather than a cultural center.

“Putting a judicial center on
this'site will only bring people
downtown from nine to five.”
she said.

Fifth-year architecture student
Ron Jackson, who contributed
the photographs that document
the daily progress of the demoli-
tion, said “Lexington is disinte-
grating its historical base."

“We want people to realize the
alternatives," he said.

A symposium scheduled for
5:30 pm. April 12 in 209 Pence

pants will include government

Kentucky author to be honored

Nationally known author James Still, a writer on Appalachian life for more than 50 years, will receive the
UK Library Associates‘ Medallion for Intellectual Excellence at the Otis A. Singletary Center for the Arts at
8: 15 pm. today.

A native of LaFayette, Ala., Still settled in Knott County, Ky., 62 years ago to work in community pro-
grams sponsored by the Hindman Settlement School. Through the years, his poems, short stories and novels
about the mountain dwellers of eastern Kentucky have given generations of American readers a greater un-
derstanding of this region.

The recipient of many awards since his first book of poetry, “Hounds of the Mountain," was published in
I937, Still has received the 0. Henry Memorial Prize for Short Story, the American Academy of Ans and
Letters Award, the Marjorie Peabody Waite Award, two Guggenheim fellowships and five honorary degrees.

Among his other works: the novels “River of Earth" and “Sporty Creek;" the short story collections, “On
Troublesome Creek” and “Pattern of a Mam” and his children’s books, “The Wolfpen Rusties” and “Widdles
and Gee Haw Whimmy Diddles."

His most recent book, “The Wolfpen Notebooks," was published in 1991.

Still holds degrees from Lincoln Memorial University, Vanderbilt University and the University of Illi-
nois. He has traveled and taught in 24 countries, and he maintains a special interest in Mayan civilization that
has resulted in l4 visits to Central America.

Still, 87, has done most of his writing from his home in the isolated community of Little Carr Creek, where
he grew most of his food, explored the mountains and fields, and participated in the daily life of the neigh-

The Libraries Medallion recognizes intellectual achievements and creations of lasting value in Kentucky,
or performed by Kentuckians.

The four previous medallion honorees are UK historian and author Thomas Clark; former Kentucky gov-
ernor Ben T. Combs, who established UK's Community College System; 0. Leonard Press, founder of Ken-
tucky Educational Television; and Wendell Berry, a nationally known poet, teacher and social critic.

AIDS Walk for Life scheduled for May

The AIDS Walk for Life, which is designed to help raise money to help HIV and AIDS patients, will be
held May 1 at Commonwealth Stadium.

The walkathon will begin at Commonwealth Stadium’s parking lot and will cover 5 kilometers. Festivities
are planned for the entire afternoon.

Prizes will be awarded to the walkers who raise the most money during the event. Walkers may get spon-
sors for each kilometer walked. The individual who raises the most money will receive two round-trip airline
tickets from Delta Airlines. Anyone who raises $30 or more will receive a T-shin. Those who raise $100 or

more will receive sweatshirts.

McCullough won an Emmy
award for his work in the PBS se-
ries “Smithsonian World." He was
also narrator of several distin-
guished documentaries, including
“LBJ" and “The Civil War.”

McCullough, who gave the I986
lecture, is the first speaker in the
history of the Prichard Lecture to
be invited back a second time.

“Many people felt that he was the
best lecturer we‘ve ever had," said
Paula Pope, executive secretary of
UK Library Associates, which is
sponsoring the lecture.

Pope said the lectures help bring
notoriety to the library system.

“One of the main purposes for
bringing McCullough is to interest
people in supporting the library,"
she said. “It’s a good way to let the
students and faculty know that the
library is there for them."

The lecture is scheduled to begin
tonight at 8:15 in the Otis A. Sin—
gletary Center for the Arts Recital
Hall. Tickets are $10 for general
admission and $5 for students.

Fall and Summer Registration

Begins Tomorrow

2 Ask your academic adviser to check your record in SIS.
3. Use PRIME at any cluster site on campus.

Check the eligibility list posted in each academic college. Graduate students go to 351 Patterson
Office Tower. Undeclared and nondegree students in the College of Arts & Sciences go to 204
Frazee Hall. Be sure to go to the college of your official major.

5. Call the Registration Office at (606) 257-7173, or go to the Registrar’s Office, 10, 11, or 12
Funkhouser Building, Monday through Friday between 8:00 am. and 4:30 pm.

6. Use the Student Access Information System in the MI. King Library Microcomputer Lab.


How to Determine Your Three-Day Registration Priority Window
There are several ways to find out when your registration priority window is:

I. Do a ”Status Check” using UK-VIP before March 29.




In the past, UK’s Advance Registration process was based on windows that opened but did not close
during the Advance Registration period. The UK-VIP telephone registration system, however, is
based on windows that open but also close. Therefore, please be aware of your registration window
and register during the three-day period that your priority window is open. Registration windows
are based on number of earned home (not including hours in progress) and the first letter of the last
name. The hours-earned categories are broken down in five-hour increments for undergraduates.
Therefore, a student with 85 earned hours will register before a student with 80 earned hours. This
is a change in the window pnbn'tyscheme from last semester, responding to student requests fora morepreci'se
