Keeneland gives $1 million equine gift

Contributing Writer

The Keeneland Association do-
nated $1 million to establish the
Keeneland Professorship at UK’s
Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Re-
search Center.

Keeneland Association Presi-
dent William C. Greely presented
a $200,000 check to UK interim
President Charles Wethington Jr.
July 12, with the remaining con-
tribution to be paid over the next

four years.
“It gives me great pleasure to
announce today Keeneland’s

commitment of a $1 million gift
to the University of Kentucky.

The Gluck Center is the leader in
its field, internationally known for
its research, and we all intend to
see this continued,” Greely said.
“Today’s gift will strengthen the
center’s ongoing efforts to attract
and retain top scientists who are
devoting their careers to research
aimed at preserving and improv-

ing the equine species.”

Keeneland's contribution, along
with other private donations help
improve not only the horse indus-
try, but the state’s economy as

“It is through private gifts such
as these that the University of
Kentucky is able to continue
working to develop the research
which leads to a healthier horse
industry, which leads to a healthi-
er economy in Kentucky,” Weth-
ington said.

Equine research on horse dis-
eases is vital to Keeneland horse
racing and benefits the industry
worldwide, Greely said.

“How many potentially great
horses either never had the armor-
tunity to race or had their racing
careers cut short because funds
were not available to conduct the
research necessary to help these
thoroughbreds race to their fullest
capacity," Greely asked.

The Gluck Center will begin an
international search immediately
to fill the professorship position,
said Deborah Taylor, administra-
tor of the UK Equine Research

“The position will be a tenured
faculty position as a senior re-
searcher in microbiology,” Taylor
said. “The professor will receive
the interest income from the $1
million as a supplement to his or
her salary and as funding for per-
sonnel or equipment needs.”

Wethington said someone out-
side UK likely will be appointed
to the position.

“It is my understanding that we
have been able to remit a re-
nowned biologist for the equine

research program and that our in-
terest now is turning toward a mi-
crobiologist for a person to fill
this position,” Wethington said.
“We’d like to have the same class
of renown in terms of microbiolo-
gytoassistwiththeresearch in
the Equine Research Center.”

Keeneland has supported UK in
the past, and the Keenehnd As-
sociation was one of the first sig-
nificant donors to the UK Equine
Research Foundation when UK
broke ground in 1985 for the
Gluck Center.

“The Keeneland Association
continues to be a strong supporter
of worthwhile efforts throughout
Kentucky, particularly throughout
Central Kentucky that do benefit
a variety of worthwhile causes,”
Wethington said.

Funding for the $1 million con-
tribution was derived from profits
Keeneland acquires through rac-
ing and sales and is directed
through a charitable contributions
program, Greely said.

Child care first step in fulfilling education reform

Staff Writer

A dedication ceremony Tues-
day for the first Kentucky child-
care research facility signaled an-
other step toward fulfilling the
state’s childhood education re-

The Research and Development
Center for School-Age Child
Care and Early Childhood. which
opened in January, fulfills a re-
quirement of the state’s 1990 edu-
cation reform bill calling for a
family resource center.

The center will train people to
organize school-age child care
programs throughout the state and
will be used for in-depth research
of child development.

Chancellor for the Lexington
Campus Robert Hemenway said
the center is “a good example of
the way that a university can actu-
ally have a meaningful impact on
real people.”

“It demonstrates the way the
University can share its expertise
and its resources with the people
of the commonwealth,” Hemen-
way said.

“People look at things through
a McDonald's coffee cup. (The
Wellness Program) will help them
look at things thorough a larger
dimension," Dunnagan said.

The program. which is open to
all employees, was founded at UK
four months ago because the Uni-
versity. Dunnagan said. wanted an
equal opportunity social program
on campus.

The Hilary 1. Boone faculty
club on the corner of Rose Street

behind this kind of program I
think we should be proud of it.”

The center also will be the fo-
cus of research and development
activities in Kentucky, said Kim
Townley, director of the Early
Childhood Laboratory.

“We do training for students, as
well as people who are already
working in the field, for them to
receive additional training,"
Townley said.

The program also will help
working parents, said Dean of the
College of Home Economics Peg-
gy Meszaros.

“What with the increasing
mothers and fathers working out~
side of home, the child is unsuper-
vised,” Meszaros said. “A school-
age child care program would be
able to fill this gap.”

A day care center only provides
custodial care. but a school-age
child care program provides a “se-
cure environment where children
can continue their education in-
stead of staying at home unsuper-
vised,” Meszaros said.

Student representatives began
their efforts to reduce spending
cuts in the reauthorization of the
Higher Education Act in Wash-
ington, D.C. last week.

The lobby effort is in the “early
stages," according to students
who visited three Kentucky con-
gressmen July 12-13.

The Higher Education Act
funds the Guaranteed Student
Loan Program and Pell Grants.
UK Student Government Associa-
tion President Sean Lohman said
Congress is upset with the student
loan default rate.

A press release from Rep. Larry
Hopkins, R-Sixth District, which
includes UK, said that about half
of the appropriation for higher ed—
ucation this year covers student
loan defaults.

Students lobby against cuts

“There are bad apples who are
tarnishing a good program,” Hop-
kins said in the release.

John Elder, the governmental
affairs coordinator for the board
of Kentucky student body presi-
dents, said the meeting with Hop-
kins was encouraging because it
showed “that students can make a

Although Congress will not re-
consider the act until early 1991,
Lohrnan said the act already has
generated discussion on Capitol

“They said it was of great con-
cern for them,” Lohman said. “

delegation is very education-

One option being discussed for

Another possibility is tying the

FACT: Today abortion is a safe,
simple procedure.

At EMW Women's Clinic we know that one of your primary concerns
with having an abortion is safety.

That's why we wanted you to know that a first trimata
abortion is one of the safest surgical procedures performed in America
today. As safe as a penicillin shot. Safer than a tonsillectomy. And four
times safer than childbirth.

And because the decision to have an abortion is never
an easy one, EMW has specially trained counselors to discuss alternatives
and offer support and reassurance without pressure. Abortion and otha
women’s services are performed by physidans in EMW’s safe and

Professor first at UK named MacArthur Fellow

Contributing Writer

English professor Guy Mattison
Davenpat, Jr. became the first

36 MacArthur Fellows, Tuesday.

Davenport received the
$365,0(X) grant with no strings at-
tached from the John D. and

The professor. who has been
honored numerous times through-
out his career, was surprised when

he heard the news. In order to re-
ceive a MacArthur Fellowship, a
person must be nominated to the
Foundation by one of 100 desig-
nated nominators.

“Wednesday or Thursday, I was
reading a lecture. The phone
rang and they told me I had won a
MacArthur Foundation,” said
Davenport, who has authored over
30 books. "There was absolutely
silence from my end of the

Davenport said that he did not
know how he was going to use

the grant, which will be distribut-
ed over a five-year period, but he
will consult Chancellor for the
Lexington Campus Robert He-

“I haven’t made up my mind,"
Davenport said. “My understand-
ing from the the department peo-
ple is that I’ve been given ulti-
mate responsibility.”

The MacArthur Foundation
named Fellows in the fields of the
arts, human rights, media studies,
population studies, rural and ur-
ban community development, lit-

erature, dance, film, illustration,
computer programming, astrono-
my, mathematics. biological sci-
ence and teacher education.

“By supporting these fellows,
highly talented individuals work—
ing in a wide range of fields, the
foundation means to honor crea—
tive persons everywhere,” said
MacArthur Foundation President
Adele Simmons in a release.

Davenport has written 15 books
of short stories, essays and trans—
lations of Greek poetry since the
mid—1970s. His works include

The Geography of the Imagina-
tion, a book of essays, and A Bal-

writing,” Johnson said.

Although he has opinions.
about his works, Johnson said that
his writing must be balanced.

“I respect and value the need
for being able to look at some-
thing as objectively as possible,"
Johnson said.

Balanced writing can make a
project frustrating, Johnson said.

“It depends on what day you
ask me,” Johnson said. Occasion-
ally he asks, “Does it really matter
if I say ‘an‘ or ‘the’? There are
days when it is really tedious.”

But Johnson said that the paper
is also “exciting.”

“You're writing at sort of a dif-
ferent level of creativity." John-
son said.

He is the first author and pri-
mary researcher of the paper,
while Taub, who now is at South-
ern Illinois University, checks the
sociological points of the paper.

The paper calls for serious stud-
ies of satanism and provides some
preliminary definitions of the de-
viant behavior. The two also as-
sert that the mass media looks at
satanism in a sensational manner,

After last season's Shakespeare
in the Park Festival production.
many believed that Woodland
Park would be dark this summer’s

The festival closed last year with
a $13,000 deficit, according to Ex-
ecutive Director Richard Valen-
tine, who retnmed to Lexington a
year ago as full-time executive di-
rector of the Lexington Musical

But the retum of Valentine and
financial help from Lexington
Mayor Scotty Baesler’s office has
re-invigorated the festival — even
if its actors are starving a little bit
this summer.

Earlier this season, Valentine
met with the budget committee of
the Shakespeare Festival Commis~
sion and “came up with a worka~
ble budget for this year."

“The good news is the mayor
identified it (the festival) as a
parks program," Valentine said.

In the past the festival had prob
lems with funding because it was
not under the city’s parks budget
nor was it eligible for Lexington
Arts and Cultural Council funds.

“Now the mayor will match a

dollar for nightly sponsors and a
$1.50 for fund-raising" the festival
completes on their own, Valentine

The Shakespeare Festival Com-
mission held fund-raising events
this year such as a showing of the
film version of “Henry V" at Lex-
ington Green and an evening at
Comedy on Broadway.

The commission will begin rais-
ing money for the 1991 season im-
mediately after this year‘s festival,
“while it is still on everyone’s
mind,” Valentine said.

With a budget reduction, howev-
er, has come lower salaries for fes-
tival participants. Actors and direc-
tors have mixed thoughts on the
decrease in pay.

Clay Watkins, director of King
Henry V and an actor in two of last
year's productions, said “a lot of
my friends didn‘t audition because
of (low salaries).”




But Watkins said that he sees the
cuts as positive in the long run be-
cause the commission is “trying to
get into a position where they can
pay actors more money" in the fu-

Leading actors were paid $500
for the summer last year. This year
all actors are paid $100.

Some professional actors refused
to audition because of salary cuts,
but Watkins said he was “glad to
see some (less-experienced) actors
get a chance to get some experience
and show they ’re good.”

“There‘s all kinds of talent in
Lexington," he said. “And not just
in the core" of experienced actors.

Andrea Polites, director of God-
spell, one of the productions, said
she has seen “no problem” with the
salary cuts.

“I‘ve had an enthusiastic group,”
she said. “It hasn’t affected us mo-

Ron Coldwell, a UK music jun-
ior who plays a disciple in God-
spell, said that he would “do it for
free, just for the chance to perform
in front of a crowd. "

Despite being paid less money,
several participants said that they
enjoy experiences with Shake-
speare in the Park.

“We have good energy, people
working together and they're hav-
ing fun," said Watkins. who gradu-
ated from the American Academy
of Dramatic Ans in New York

It’s the community spirit that
matters, Watkins said.

“I worked for several years at
New York Shakespeare Festival
and we will never be as good as
New York,” he said.

New York Shakespeare directors
have the financial resources to cast
big-name actors like Al Pacino,
Watkins said, “but we can get ac-
tors from the community and for
the community."

Bill Caise, a UK theater and psy-
chology senior and director of
Love’s Labor’s Lost, said that the
community involvement is impor-

Ron Coldwell did not plan to au-
dition for Shakespeare in the Park
this year. Coldwell, a UK music
junior from Lexington, was cast
for Godspell by chance.

“I went to auditions with a
friend. A guy was singing, and I
said, ‘I can do that,” he said. So
that day he auditioned.

“Acting is something i enjoy do—
ing, especially outdoors," said Kip
Bowmar, a UK senior and cast
member of Love ‘5 Labor's Lost.

Bowmar also said that Shake-
speare in the Park is a valuable ex-
perience for local actors because
“you don’t find much Shakespeare
in other Lexington theater groups.“

“The students have been fortu-
nate to do this during summer“
when they aren't in school, said
Andrea Polites, director of God-
spell. “To get out into the commu—
nity and work will be beneficial."

Rehearsals are hard work, and
Godspell is a musical that requires
all 10 cast members to be on stage
atall times.

“It‘s good having just to people
work good together, and as soon as
they‘re on stage, they stay on the

Bowmar said that meeting and
working with new people also is
something that attracts him to the
Shakespeare Festival.

“The casts are big. and you make
a lot of new friends during summer
rehearsals," he said.

tival opened last night at Woodland
Park. It runs Wednesdays through
Sundays for the next three weeks in
this order: Godspell. Love's La-

‘Rocky’ pleasurable for audience as well as actors

Arts Editor

“There is nothing wrong with
giving yourself a little pleasure,"
said Dr. Frank N. Furter during
the Actor Guild of Lexington’s
opening of “The Rocky Horror

Show” last week.

“There is in Kentucky," shout-
ed Jeff Fighatrnaster from the au-
dience. Fighatmaster, surprisingly
not a member of the cast, has
seen the movie 50 times and
threw in well-timed remarks dur-
ing the performance. Audience

repartees always have been part
of “The Rocky Horror Show,” a
1974 English play.

Despite his clever quips, Fig-
hatrnaster was not the star attrac-
tion of Thursday night's perfor-
mance at ArtsPlace and produced
by Actor's Guild. It is difficult.
