First, it was the miracle birth of
the septuplets in Iowa. N ow, a med—
ical miracle has hit closer to home.

On Oct. 30, UK surgeons per-
formed a rare operation on a Lan-
caster, Ky., infant whose heart
defect was discovered in utero.

Cardiothoracic surgeon Dr.
Simon Abraham, an assistant pro-
fessor of surgery at the UK Col—

procedure of the biventricular

repair of the aortic atresia on +
day—old Austin Gullett.

The defect, located by a sono—
gram 33 weeks into the pregnan—
cy, was first detected by a
Danville, Kyu, ultrasonographcr.

At 36 weeks. Lexington perina—
tologist Dr. John ()‘Brien per—
formed an additional sonogram on
the mother, Kristin (lullett, which
confirmed the heart defect.

At that time, (illllctt was
referred to UK llospital to work
with Dr. Francis .\lc(3affrcy,
director of fetal echocardiography'

at [K Children's Hospital and an
assistant professor of pediatrics.

.\lc(I-affrey agreed with the
other doctors that the fetus did
have the diagnosis of aortic atresia
and ventricular septal defect.

“This is a life—threatening type
of heart disease," McCaffrey said.
“Some families would have liked
not to pursue any type of correc-
tion after birth.

“Kristin, Derek (infant's father)
and their families very bravely
decided to push on and we outlined
for them the difficulties with the

surgery and the potential mortality
and the morbidity involved with the
surgery. \Ve then coordinated with
Dr. Abraham to make everything to
go as smoothly and as well as possi-
)lL‘ after the baby was bom.”

Austin was in his 30th week
after induced labor. Doctors said
they held off any type of surgery
on the infant until he was strong
enough to endure the procedure.

The 6-poundI l—ounce boy was
placed in UK Children‘s Hospi—
tal's neonatal intensive care unit
until the surgery.

.\lc(iaflrcy said \usiin
born with no signs of any L'tnllplr
cations, “which is a typical sign of
congenital heart disease.‘~

The doctors agreed the prenatal
detection of the heart defect was
detrimental to the infant‘s stit'\'1\.il.

“It may have been a couple of
days before the problem may hay c
been picked up." O'Brien said. “By
that time, \ustin would have been
critically ill .iiid that may hayc made
the surgery much more risky."

The si.\4hour surgery included
the doctors enlarging the aorta. thc

A5 holiday
nears, UK

clearing out

Planes, trains and automobiles.

Well, maybe not trains, but
definitely planes and automobiles.

The last two words signify the
forms of transportation that UK
students eager to leave campus
will be taking advantage of over
the next several days as the rush to

et home for Thanksgiving hits
ll swing.

As we speak, most UK students
are packing their bags and plotting
their trips to every corner of the
Blue 55 and beyond for a weekend
of re axing and stuffing their faces.

To most, the Thanksgiving
holiday weekend allows families a
chance to spend time together and
catch up on their busy ives while
chowing down on pounds upon
pounds of turkey, stuffing, cran—
berries and pumpkin pie.

While this holds true for many
UK students as well, itiost said they
are also looking forward to rekin-
dling their relationships with friends
who chose to attend other schools.

Broadcast journalism freshman
Shaun Knox, who hails from May-
field, Ky., said he can't wait to
catch up on old times with friends
from back home.

“I’m leaving \Vednesday at
noon, but 1 still wish I could leave
earlier," Knox said. “1 Tan to spend
a lot of time with family and friends
who I haven’t seen in a while."

Despite Mayfield's relative

roxiniity to UK, Knox hasn’t
liecn able to get home often, so
like many others on campus, this
is his first real opportunity to visit

his hotnetown. For others, such as
Kristen Gedney, the wait to go
home has been even longer.

“Being frotn Boston, it is not
easy to get home often," said Ged-
ney, a mechanical engineering
freshman who will fly out of Lex-
ington's Bluegrass Airport
tonight. “I’ve only seen my family
once since coming down here last
August, so I'm really looking for-
ward to it."

Still, for other students, such as
athletes like freshman diver Carrie
Knoeber, the break is a welcome
opportunity to relax and get away
frotn the rigors of Division l—A
athletics and the demands it places
on them.

“I can’t wait to get home and
just rest and reflect back on every—
thing that has happened to me
thus far this semester," said Knoc-
ber, an English major who lives in
Raleigh, NC. “I plan to eat, sleep,
shop and hang out with friends.
It‘s just a great chance to get away

Last night in the Martin Luther

Fa rid-Deen spoke of the spiritu-
al troubles plaguing African-Amer-

of Minority Affairs of the UK

spective on the Social and Politi-
cal Implications.”

“Male-female relationships,
particularly African—American
relationships, from a cultural
standpoint, are very rich,”
Fakhrid-Deen said. “I'm trying to
get individuals to look at the rich—
ness of it and get into the spiritual
aspect of it as opposed to this
physical attraction.”

He started out the gathering by
pouring libations and saying

thanks to the African, European
and Native American ancestors of
all present, as well as to God.

“Prayer is when you s eak to
God,” Fakhrid-Deen sai , “and
meditation is when God speaks to

was that those who have little

gullible, more easily manipulated
and more easily adapted to the
capitalist machine.”
Fakhrid—Deen reiterated this
point by sharing an anecdote. He

Head coach Bernadette Mattox
says it's good to have [lay back with
the team. and is satisfied with her
team's maturation.

“It’s going to take some time."
Mattox said. “(llay) is wanting to

lay all the time and wanting to go

right now."

llay‘s rcturn gives the (Eats a
scoring boost on the court and now
that nearly all of UK’s wounds are
hcalcd. the (lats can finally play
with a full deck. Mattox hasn‘t been
upset with the team's play in the
two losses. pointing out the season
is just starting.

“I'm not disap iointcd. it's just

NEW YORK — The nanny
pushes a stroller into Clint East—
wood’s hotel suite, and the toddler
lights up. “Daddy's little girl," the
tough—guy screen legend says,

Little Morgan, barely 1]
months, is loving it. So is be.

This is not your father’s Clint
Eastwood. This is Clint East-
wood, father. (Actually, he's a
father seven times by five different
women, but more on that later).

This is not your father’s Clint
Eastwood in other ways, too:
Dirty Harry and the Man \Nith
No Name ~— lonely, violent, enig-
matic, retributive, scary macho
men — have long been supplanted
by the director of films rife with
intelligence and nuance.

That’s why the 67-year-old
director-actor dismisses the
notion that many critics who once
dismissed him have pulled a “180”
by fawning over much of his
recent work.

“Maybe I pulled a 180, and
they saw that.” he says in that
quiet rats that sounds hoarse after
talkin a I da .“Or else, maybe -—
I’ve a ways t ought it was proba-

. \

bly 'causc they just grew up with
me. ()r I can answer it by say—
ing I've just outlived everyone, or
we've all inst changed; we've all
mellowed with the times.“

It‘s a little like what the central
character in his latest directorial

effort, Midnight in the Garden of

Good and Evil, sa 's: “Truth, like
art, is in the eye ofthe beholder."
“There‘s certainly been a lot of
different views expressed on my
work," he says.
And much ofit has entailed mis—
conceptions about him, he says.
“In the early '70s, it was: he feels
like a rogue cop. Or a cynical cow—
boy (in the '60s)," he says. “\Vho
knows? And because I’ve always
had a little touch of ambiguity in
some of the films, even dating back
to the Fixltjill of Dollarx characters,
there’s a ways been that thing
where people have been drawn in
by their own interpretation."
\Vhilc his action—adventure
image seems long ago and far
away, Eastwood doesn't preclude
a modified return to such a role.
“Nowadays there are so many
younger uys doin that sort of
stuff. And] kind 0 drifted away
from it in m own quest to diver-
sify a little it over the years. I

wouldn't say that I wouldn't drift
back to that sort of thing, to
something that had an action—
adventure feel about it, but the
story would have to mean some-
thin ," he says.

i e cites LM/brgiccii and In the
Line 0 Fire as examples, saying
they ad action sequences but
were more about men with a lot of
miles on them, sotne damage, a
little vulnerability — and a desire
for redemption.

Those characters were more
interesting to play than some of
his younger characters who “might
have been seeking some redemp—
tion but not a lot. He lau hs.

Both characters, too, find they
have to make some concessions to
advancing years — something that
Eastwood seems to be thinking

about when he uses the words
“maturity" and “age" in talking
about his sustained success in

Eastwood doesn't see his work
as having “a considered progress,
tarticularly thou ht-out. It just
kind of happenetfi I think it just
happened with life, with maturity
it seems like at this sta c right
now there's quite a few 6 ements
you can throw into it to make the
characters more interesting."

As for his longevity, he takes a
long pause.

“I can’t put my fin er on it,“ he
says, pausing again. “fuck, maybe.
Maybe I’ve chosen the right things.
Maybe I’ve matured ahead and just
done some roiccts that have
worked — and stayed up with the
aging process. It‘s all a crapshoot."
