Hayes vows to continue appeals process

Relentless: 56 presidential candidate requests
Board of Trustees review of last month’s election

By Sara Cunningham
surr mini—“E

Votes were counted for the
Student Government elections
over a month ago. but the fight
over election claims is likely to
continue long after students
take their finals next week.

The 86 Supreme Court up-
held the rulings of the Election
Board of Claims last week.


marking the end of student
hearings on election claims.
However. SG president runner
up Ben Hayes is not satisfied
and said he is going to continue
pursuing the matter.

He said his claims of possi-
ble funding violations and oth‘
er alleged abuses are too
important to forget.

“I feel the corruption has

saturated student government
on every level." Hayes said.
“It's not that I didn't work hard
enough. I just didn't cheat
hard enough."

Hayes asked the UK Board
of Trustees to listen to claims
and intervene. He said the mat-
ters might be heard sometime
in June.

"I'm not sure if they'll even
hear it.“ Hayes said. “But if
they‘re interested in becoming
a Top—20 university you Would
think they would want to end
corruption in student govern-
ment just like they are working


to end the Athletics Depart»
ment corruption."

Hayes also contacted the
state board of the ACLU to ask
them for legal help. He said
they should be getting back to
him sometime next month. If
they do not offer assistance. he
will contact local attorneys for
pro bono help in court later on.
he said,

“I'm not stopping until l
have exhausted all means of ap-
peal or Tim (Robinson) steps
down." Hayes said.

Some have questioned how
Hayes‘ actions might affect SC

entucky’s new catch

New in town

Stephen Vlrinn carries his l6-month-old son, Eli, on his shoulders while his wife, Julie, looks on durin

University Press of Kentucky on South Limestone. Wrinn started this month as the press's third director.

Welcome: New University Press director pursues
his passions - publishing books and fishing

By Tracy Kershaw

When Stephen Wrinn found
out he was a finalist for the di-
rector‘s job at the University
Press of Kentucky. he went
straight to his computer.

“I did a Google search for
‘Kentucky and fishing.“‘ he said.
“I had to specifically know how
good the fishing was here."

The search brought up a
book by Kentucky author Art
Lander. A Fishing Guide to Ken-
tucky's Major Lakes. Wrinn was
about to order a copy when he
noticed the University Press of
Kentucky. where he would soon
visit for an interview. had pub-
lished the book. So he decided to
wait and pick up a copy in per-

In Lexington. Wrinn not
only got a guide to great fishing.
but also a new job.

After working 12 years at
commercial publisher Rowan
and Littlefield in Washington
00. he became the third direc.
tor of UPK. which publishes

scholarly books for 14 colleges
in the state.

After a while. the profit—dri-
ven world of commercial pub~
lishing drove Wrinn to want to
work at a more serious-minded
university press.

“I realized that in commer-
cial publishing. because it is for
profit. there is a logic that you
can never be content with just
a. say. 5 percent profit. You
must grow." he said. sitting in
his new office at 663 South
Limestone. “It got to a point
where I didn't enjoy publishing
the books we published."

As director of the press.
Wrinn will acquire books in
history and political science
and manage a ZZZ-person staff
and a warehouse operation.

He'll also serve as liaison
for the Thomas D. Clark Foun-
dation. an organization whose
mission is to support the publi»
cation of books about Kentucky
and the Appalachian region.

“My goal as director is to
continue our strengths in re-
gional publishing but take UPK

to a higher level of national
recognition and prestige."
he said.

Wrinn said he wants to
combine the merits of commer-
cial publishing quick deci»
sion-making and project turn-
around 7-~ with the scholarly
and regional mission of the
press. which. he said. is already
poised for continued success.

“I think I have to convince
people of my utter sincerity
that publishing only firstrate
scholarly work is the reason I
am here." he said.

Leila Salisbury. UPK mar-
keting manager. said the staff is
already pleased with Wrinn

“The entire staff is im
pressed that he seems to have
high standards for the scholar-
ly publishing part of our press."
Salisbury said. “He seems to
have already embraced the re‘
gional mission of the press."

One of Wrinn's first pro-
jects won't be a tough one for
the avid fisherman: He'll be the
editor for Art Lander‘s next
book on fishing in Kentucky's
smaller lakes.

“i'm going to be his peer re
viewer . make him take me
out to all the lakes so I can dou»
ble-check his research. Some-




9 a suprise visit Thursday afternoon outside the

body's got to do it." he said.

While living in Washington
DC. Wrinn drove two hours al-
most every weekend to western
Maryland to fish. A Palomino
golden trout he caught in Penn-
sylvania is mounted on his of-
fice wall and a cardboard pro-
motional for A Fishing Guide to
Kentucky '3 Major Lakes sits on
a table.

“Fishing is my passion." he
said. grabbing a small photo al~
bum from his bookshelf He
flipped through each page.
“This is a steelhead trout in up»
state New York. a striped bass
in Connecticut. a brown trout
in Scotland and a rainbow trout
in Idaho."

On Tuesday Wrinn will fish
with Kentucky Poet Laureate
and UK English professor
James Baker Hall at a pond on
Hall's Sadieville farm.

“How cool is this job”
Wrinn said. The trip will be his
first time to fish in Kentucky

UPK director is a position
he said he would have de
scribed four years ago as his
ideal job. And he called Ken-
tucky a place he can see himself
staying in forever. “I can't wait
to get to know this entire state."

I think I have to convince people that publishing only first-

rate scholarly work is the reason I am here.”

in the future. 80 president Tim
Robinson was sworn into office
for his second term Wednesday
and said Hayes is ignoring and
potentially damaging the Hide
pendence of SC.

"To go outside 80 is not ap‘
propriate.“ Robinson said.

“For someone who seems to
be so concerned about repre-
senting students. he doesn't
seem to be bothered by piercing
SG's indeiwndence, He's putting
his self~interest before SC."

SC Advisor John Herbst
said he has never seen 80 go
through controversy like they


are going through now. He has
been SG Advisor for f'ive years
and has Worked on-and-off with
80 for 218 years.

He said many organiza-
tions deal With allegations and
speculations at some point and
the best thing to do is wait for
the facts.

“I've always considered 80
to be a self-governing organiza-
tion with its own checks and
balances." Herbst said. “But
this is above and beyond the
normal constraints of the SG
constitution. I'm not sure what
this means for the future,"

show Arab anger over US support for Israel,
The president's upbeat assessment contrasted
wttli recent Saudi complaints that the adminis

prospects for Mideast peace and soured relations
with the Arab world. Bush took a more personal
view after he and Abdullah spent five hours
meeting and then walking and driving the fields

Senate's energy bill offers tax breaks
WASHINGTON The Senate passed an ener-
gy bill Thursday that features tax breaks to con-
serve and produce energy and directs more use
ofethanol. but rejects the Bush administration
proposal to develop oil in an Arctic wildlife
refuge. After sometimes bitter deliberations. the
Senate approved the energy package 88-11. The
vote sets up a showdown with the House. which
last year passed an energy bill that focuses more
on helping energy companies boost production.
including drilling in the Alaska refuge. Much of
the Senate debate. which stretched over six
weeks. centered on America's dependence on
foreign oil and the security concerns over rely
ing on the volatile Middle East for much of its
energy. Republicans argued for more domestic
production. while most Democrats maintained

the answer was in conservation.
