Glenn decries tuition posters

By Tracy Nershaw

By Mark Vanderhoff

Student Government Association
President Jiinttty Glenn said posters hung
across campus by Students for Responsi—
ble Representation are incorrect and mis-

The poster attacks Glenn for voting for
a $930 tuition increase. urging students to
“Tell Jimmy you're sick and tired of stotn
aching his tuition increase.”

Glenn said the poster misleads stu
dents because it doesn't specifically say
the tuition increase would take effect over
a period of two years.

“They make it sound like its $930 just
in one lump sum." Glenn said.

llttlmate cam David‘Hartsek plays tennis
andbaskethall ahd will compete in a marathon

By Chris Markus

The Boston Marathon is the creme
de la creme of American road races.

It is a 26.2-mile test of stamina and
courage known worldwide for its tradi-
tion and heritage.

For over 100 years the event has
drawn racers from every corner of the
earth, including Lexingtonian David

This year. Hartsek will compete in
the Boston Marathon for the third time.

Hartsek is not just another racer.

After a car accident in 1975, Hartsek
was diagnosed as paraplegic. and was left
without the use of his legs.

This confinement did not keep him
from participating in sports.

Besides competing in road races
since1985, Hartsek also enjoys basketball
and serves as the wheelchair coordinator
for the Kentucky Tennis Association.

The tuition increase Glenn voted for

in September as a member of the Board of

Trustees would raise tuition $75 a semes-
ter for 2000-01 and $80 a semester for 2001-
02 for resident students atid $225 a semes-
ter for 200001 and $240 a semester for 2001-
02 for nonresident students.

The poster features a small box at the
bottom attributing a Septetnbe‘ 22. 1999
Lexington Herald-leader article for the in
formation and wording that mentions
200102 as a basis for the calculation but
doesn't specifically say the calculation pe-
riod was two years.

“I think they‘re twisting the facts and
misleading the students." Glenn said.

“If they said from 1909-2000 to zool-
2002 they would be correct." he added.

Glenn said he didn‘t know anyone frotn
Students for Responsible Representation.

“I take the discipline it takes to excel
in sports and apply that in other aspects
of my life." Hartsek said.

This year. Hartsek will be the only
Kentucky wheelchair athlete to partici—
pate in the Boston Marathon.

To qualify for the race, wheelchair
athletes in Hartsek’s division must com-
plete a marathon in less than two hours
and 15 minutes.

Hartsek qualified this past Novem—
ber in Columbus. Ohio, with a finishing
time of two hours and nine minutes.

He hopes to break the two-hour bar-
rier this April at the Boston Marathon.

For Hartsek. a goal of this magnitude
requires a magnificent machine.

Hartsek will race this year‘s
marathon in a custom made $3,500 wheel-
chair equipped with an on-board comput-
er that lists information such as the
amount of distance completed. and Hart-
sek‘s average speed during the race.

In addition to a state-of~the-art racing

of training miles per week.

Although the Boston Marathon is a
grueling race. Hartsek is no newcomer.
With over 250 races under his belt. Hart
sek is a seasoned veteran.

“You build a mental toughness.
which helps you with your overall sense
of self-esteem." said Hartsek of his racing

Hartsek is dedicating this marathon
to his friend Brian Wilson. who died of
an aneurysm while holding his baby
daughter in January.

“I‘m going to think of him because
you got to have something to tltitik about

Hartsek said the most demanding
part of the race comes at the 20th mile. At
this point of the race competitors begin a
2»mile ascent commonly known as
"heartbreak hill."

Hartsek is expecting to stay with a

Euclid Avenue will be getting a facelift this summer.
At the center of controversy is just what type of facelift

Transportation officials support narrowing the ex-

OPEC to boost oil production

VIENNA. Austria LOPEC ignored objec-
tions of its second-biggest member. Iran. and
agreed Tuesday to increase oil production. but
the amount of new oil flowing into the market
might not be enough to bring down gasoline
prices in the l'nited States. In a rare departure
frotn its normal quest for unanimity. ministers of
the l l~nation camel announced Wednesday morn-
ing that nine members would raise production
by 6.3 percent. or a total of 1.45 million barrels a
day. That appears to be well short of what ana-
lysts have said would be needed to curb crude oil
prices that have tripled over the past 12 months.
The Clinton administration had been lobbying
for a rise of 2 million to 2.5 tnillion barrels a day
to bring down gasoline prices.

Students form group to
support Green Party

Use the vote: A new
group for a group of
political underdogs

By Al Edwards
coutmaurmo umifn

Students at the University
of Kentucky have. formed Stu-
dents for the Green Party. a po-
litical group whose agenda is to
get Green Party presidential
candidate Ralph Nader on the
Kentucky ballot.

The group will have its first
meeting Thursday. March 30.
The tneeting will focus on edu-
cating voters about Nader and
his grass roots political stances.

“The meeting on Thursday
will hopefully get people inter-
ested who are tired of Al Gore
and George W. Bush." said
Steve Buttes. co-coordinator of
the group.

They will need to get more
than 5.000 signatures on the pe-


tition to get Nader on the ballot.
but they are trying for 8.000 to
ensure his placement. Buttes

In 1992. Nader ran for presi-
dent on a budget of five dollars
a day and finished behind Ross

Buttes said that Nader. who
is known for his stances on la.
bor improvements and redis-
tributing power in America.
will shift political power from
corporate America to the aver
age citizen.

The Green Party is well
known for its stances on com»
munity as being a whole and
giving power back to the peo-
ple. Buttes said.

The Students for the Green
Party will help educate voters
on the similarities between the
Democratic and Republican
parties while at the same time

third party candidate for presi-

Getting Nader on the ballot
will be a difficult task for the
Green Party group. but
the coordinators of the group

are optimistic.

Gabriel Sperber. who also
helped establish the group. said
Nader has a “great chance" of
getting on the ballot. but it all
depends on how many people
show up and educate them-
selves on the presidential hope-

Students for the Green Pare
ty will also try to establish a
registration rally as a way of
getting people‘s signatures. but
say that the meeting is the first
attempt to gain interest in him.

“Ralph Nader is a name
people will recognize and this
will hopefully get peoples‘ at-
tention." Buttes said.

Yosemite could gain
more land for wrlderness

Process begins: Yosemite Valley Plan could
revolutionize one of nation's popular parks


ly 95 percent of Yosemite Na-
tional Park. more than 704.000
acres. is wilderness. Interior
Secretary Bruce Babbitt wants

Babbitt on Monday out-
lined a long-awaited develop-
ment plan that he says will re—
store and protect the splendor
of the park that stretches along
California's eastern flank.

The SOC-page draft summa-
ry called the Yosemite Valley
Plan seeks to scale back park-
ing. move buildings. remove
roads. reduce campsites and es-
tablish a ISO-foot wide protected
zone along most of the Merced

Some environmentalists
say the plan doesn't go far
enough. Others who use the
park for recreation fear it will
mean restrictions.

At the heart of the plan is a
shuttle bus system that would
ferry day visitors in from three
expanded lots at the main en-
trances. reducing the flow of
traffic by 60 percent.

The plan also calls for con»
verting a portion of a popular
road through the valley into a
bike and foot trail and studying
for five years how the valleys
habitats are affected by current

“This is not about turning
people away from the park."
Babbitt said. “The problem is
not that there‘s too many peo-
ple. The problem is there‘s too
many cars."

If approved by the National
Park Service. the plan would be


the culmination of a 20-year
battle to reduce human foot-
prints in the seven-mile long.
one-mile wide Yosemite, Valley.
the main destination for park

The process is far froin
over. Babbitt encouraged stip-
porters and critics to make
their voices heard during the
90-day comment period begin-
ning April 7.

Set aside in 1890.
Yosemite’s alpine wilderness.
groves of Giant Sequoias and
Yosemite Valley draw nearly 4
million visitors a year and 7.000
cars on a busy summer day.

“I really think the plan
finds an elegant balance be
tween park protection and visi-
tor use and enjoyment." said
Jay Watson. regional director
for The Wilderness Society.
which played a lead role in the
proposal. “The Park Service
should be applauded for listen-
ing to the public in putting this
thing together."

But other environmental
groups. including the Sierra
Club. said the draft report was
released too early. before the
separate Merced River Plan has
been finalized.

“The Merced River forms
the heart of the valley There
isn‘t a way to evaluate the
Yosemite Plan until the river
plan is done.“ said Sierra Club
spokeswoman Joyce Eden.

The Yosemite draft reflects
the somewhat controversial
mission by federal land man
agers to protect wildlife and
habitats ,,. sometimes at the eX»
pense of visitor freedom or by
excluding snowmobiles. jet

skis. tour planes and other
recreational vehicles.

"They do pollute the envi»
romnent and just the use of
them is skyrocketing." said
Elaine Seyy. a park seryice

Some recreationalists fear
this trend will inevitably lead
to tighter restrictions. Already.
a national rule scheduled to go
into effect in April will limit
the use of jet skis to 21 of .379

(‘ongress passed legislation
last week that will restrict the
amount of scenic air tours
above parks. said I)estry
Jarvis. an assistant with the In
terior Department.

Many parks already have
or are considering their own
specific recreational rules. For
example. the Grand (‘anyon al-
ready governs its air traflic and
Yellowstone is considering ban;
ning snowmobiles.

“I guess the question we're
asking is. ‘Is the government
protecting the land for the peo-
ple or from the people?‘ said
Tom Barile. chairman of the
Sierra Nevada Access. Multi-
pleUse and Stewardship (‘oali-
tion. a group of property own-
ers. off-road vehicle enthusi-
asts. horseback riders and log-
gers. “People need to recreate."

Plans dropped for
nuke incinera


BOISE. Idaho The US.
government has dropped plans
to build a nuclear waste incin-
erator 100 miles upwind from
the scenic Tetons and Yellow-
stone National Park. the na-
tion's oldest and largest.

Energy Secretary Bill
Richardson on Monday con-
firmed a settlement with envi
ronmental groups that had sued
over the plan. Critics feared
that toxic particles would have
drifted into Wyoming and laced
the land and water with PCBs
and radiation.

At the core of the contro-
versy is 130.000 cubic yards of
waste at the Idaho National En-
gineering and Environmental

Laboratory near Idaho Falls.

Half of the waste is sup-
posed to go to an underground
facility outside Carlsbad. N.M..
the nation’s only long-term
storage site for radioactive

The Energy Department
had contracted with British Nu-
clear Fuels Ltd. to build a facili-
ty at the site that will compact
up to 90 percent of the storage-
bound waste and an incinerator
to burn the rest. Burning was to
be used for waste too laden with
PCBs for storage or containing
materials too dangerous to

The anti-incinerator move-
ment was born last summer in
the scenic Jackson Hole region
of northwest Wyoming. where


celebrities like Harrison Ford
have built second homes.

Opponents who had the
services of Jackson attorney
Gerry Spence said the gov-
ernment planned to allow the
burning of waste that contains
about one metric ton of plutoni-

Energy officials hope to be»
gin construction of the treat-
ment plant without an incin»
erator as early as May. They
estimated the cost ofthe facility
at $500 million. less than half

agreed to commission a panel
to study technological alterna-
tives to burning nuclear waste

Visiting the “American Hollow"

Appalachian documentary: Film
tells story of Eastern Kentucky's
family lives and daily troubles

By Patrick Avery
HRH?" "’

Deep in the Eastern Kentucky Mudlick Hol-
low. the Bowling family lives secluded from the
western world. All 13 children and many other
grandchildren of free and Bass Bowling live
within one hour of their house.

Their lives are documented in Rory
Kennedy‘s documentary American Hollow

Daughter of Sen. Robert Kennedy. Rory
Kennedy came into the world six months after

her father's assassination. She has long written
books and worked in film.

American Hollow (l'l‘Al.**t documents the
poverty that strikes some of the rural areas in
Eastern Kentucky. Through financial. family
and emotional trials. the Bowling family man
ages to live life to the fullest.

The film focuses on the young love of a
teenager that ends in a break-up and an abusive
husband who ends up in jail for murder.

The best story line. Clint Rowling‘s teen-
angst. rings true for many social classes. not
just the lower class. He believes he found the
girl of his dreams. only to have her break his
heart. He doesn‘t know how to deal with the sit-
uation. so he results to cursing at his mom or
hitting something He later tries to leave in an
attempt to get rid of his problems only to return
to the hollow a month later.

Though the film plays on many hillbilly

stereotypes. but allows the family to be them
selves and gets to the heart of why things can
go array in a secluded. rural area,

When the film was released. many people
claimed the filmed only perpetuated the rural
Appalachia stereotypes.

Ron Eller. professor of history and director
of the Appalachian Center. understands those
accusations but believes the film was not made
strictly to offend.

“The film does provide stereotypical iin
ages. However. it raises many important issues
and topics about Appalachia." Eller said. "You
have to ask what the intentions of the film are
before you can criticize it."
