SAB’s fate remains unresolved after meeting

56, SAB, legal cousel, administrators meet;
trustees could decide issue later this month

By Tricia McKenny


Leaders of Student Govern-
ment and Student Activities Board
met with UK administrators Fri-
day to discuss the ongoing debate
over Referendum One. but the par—
ties could not reach a solution.

The referendum asked student
voters in April if they would “sup-
port popular elections for execu-
tive officers of student organiza-
tions that receive the student ac-
tivities fee." The measure passed
by a 1.614 to 571 vote.

On Sept. 29. SG unanimously
approved a new “skeleton" consti~

lar election of SAB leaders. Cur:
rently. an internal board of direc-
tors selects SAB's president and
vice president.

Friday's meeting . which fea-
tured 80 President Rachel Watts,
SG Sen. Braphus Kaalund and
SAB President Lindsay Crelly
was meant to be “a chance to have
a discussion about the issue and
hopefully come to an agreement."
said Pat Terrell, vice president of
Student Affairs. UK President Lee
Todd asked Terrell to represent
the administration‘s opinion
about the issue.

Crelly expressed some frustra-
tion that the groups didn‘t resolve

“We have spent so mtich time
on the referendum and haven't
gotten anywhere." she said. “It is
taking away from our purpose as

Barbara Jones. UK's general le-
gal counsel. thought the meeting
was worthwhile.

“It was a good opportunity for
everyone involved to discuss the
issue." Jones said. "That hadn't
been done before."

Several other UK administra
tors. such as Dean of Students Vic-
tor Hazard. also attended the

The two sides “agreed to dis-
agree.“ Hazard said.

"I don‘t think a matter like this
can ever be resolved in a way that
makes everyone happy." he said.

Kaalund said he doesn't fore-
see a quick resolution to the issue.

“In a way, it seems we are at an

offers catch-up time

By Obbie Todd

in the 11 days of UK's new
winter intersession. students
can earn the same number of
credits per class as they would
in an entire semester.

The purpose of the winter
intersession , which offers 16
classes is for students to
concentrate on a single area of
study that interests them.

The intersession gives stu-
dents the chance to explore
other avenues. said Phil
Greasley. dean of university

These new classes are a
part of UK‘s new programs
committed to creating oppor-
tunities for a thorough and
speedy graduation. Greasley

But the real benefit is the
intense study involved in the
winter intersession class.
(lreasley said.

“These classes can provide
a very positive experience if
you let them." (ireasley said.

The program. copied from
schools like Centre (‘ollege in
Danville. is “short but stout."
Greasley said.

The course will consist of

"Teachers are also hu-

Kaalund expressed an interest
in taking the issue to the Student

"The question facing the board
isn‘t whether S(} has the authority
to decide" how SAB leaders are
elected. Watts said. “The board is
going to look at what they think

Williams said. “Beyond that. it's

Williams said the board would
take action on the issue if the ad-
ministration asked it to. btit he
said the group “wouldn't unilater-

If the Board of Trustees asked
Terrell for a recommendation.
Terrell said she would make the
same recommendation that she
made to SC in late September.

“The president of the universie
ty should appoint a committee to
review internal structures and or-

zations that receive money from
student fees." Terrell said.

The next time the Board of

Chandler should embrace debate

In a time when political activism
seems to be at a peak. some political
candidates are shirking their public
duty. hiding in the shadows from voters
who want to know where they stand.

Case in point: Democratic Rep. Ben .

Chandler, incumbent in the 6th district
Congressional race. declines to answer
voters‘ calls to debate.

After numerous phone calls to
Chandler‘s press secretary and catn-
paign manager. the Kernel has received
no word that he would be attending the
KerneL”WRFL-FM 6th District Congres-
sional Debate this Wednesday.

While the other three candidates
have responded —- state Sen. Tom Bu-
ford. Constitution Party candidate Sta-
cy Abner and Libertarian candidate
Mark Galley Chandler seems to have
better things to do than answer voters‘

The Kernel WRFL debate wouldn't
be his first no-show.

Chandler was conspicuously absent

from the debate hosted by the League of
Women Voters Oct. 2 at the Central Li-
brary downtown.

Lexington residents deserve better.
Students deserve better.

This act by Chandler follows a long
line of other state candidate absences
at debates.

Democratic 3rd Congressional dis
trict candidate Tony Miller was miss-
ing at a Louisville Rotary (‘lub debate
against Republican incumbent Anne
Northup last month.

US. Sen. Jim Bunning. who turned
down Kentucky Educational Televi-
sion‘s debate invitation. finally came
out of hiding and debated Dan Mongia~
rdo Oct. 11. But this was only after
Mongiardo agreed to Bunning‘s terms

no studio audience and no use of de-
bate footage in campaign advertise-
ments. among others.

It's times like these that really show
voters where candidates‘ hearts and
wishes really lie.

These absences separate the brave
and eager candidates from the cowards.

Sure. debates are stressful and open
a candidate up to possible ridicule and
refutability. but that's the point. We're
electing these officials to a position
where they must take stances. confront
conflicts of opinion and. most impor-
tantly: answer to their constituents.

As President Bush said in the first
presidential debate. “It‘s hard work."
Where else are we going to see how
these candidates stack up before we
choose them? A sound byte? An attack
ad? A Web site?

But in all honesty. we‘ve seen how
they stack up. Silence is not a lack of a
stance; silence often speaks the loudest.
If the candidates won’t come to the call
of voters in a debate. how will we know
they will come to our call if they are

This repeated arrogance and weak-
ness is a message to voters. We just
hope voters won't forget this on Nov. 2.
