“They say they don't

In his speech. Edwards
addressed issues such as the
war in Iraq and said there is
no excuse for the more than
1.000 American deaths in
Iraq so far.

“Iraq by any definition
is a mess. and it‘s a mess be-
cause of George Bush and
Dick Cheney" he said.

He also criticized
Bush‘s handling of the econ-

American companies send-

Gallery hop
begins tonight

By Kevin Moser

THE kii’iuco KERHEL

The Lexington Arts and Cultural Council will be present-
ing this season's first Gallery Hop tonight from 5 to 8 pm.

The Gallery Hop features several downtown and campus
galleries. Admission to the .
Gallery Hop is free. and each
offers a different collection
to titillate the senses

ArtsPlace gallery; locat~
ed at 161 North Mill St.
downtown. is featuring the
“If You Were Here" exhibi-
tion, showcasing pieces by
several artists from Ken-
tucky and New York.

“The show is unique be
cause even though the
artists featured lived in dif-
ferent places. they were do-
ing thematically similar
works." said Shannon Carri-
co. communications assis~ '
tant for the Lexington Arts
and Cultural Council.

Carrico said the show
emerged as a result of works
viewed by [cxington Arts and Cultural Council President Jim
Clark while in New York. Both Clark and Mary Dinaburg. a eu-
rator from New York. were struck by the similarities between
artists in (‘entral Kentucky and artists in New York.

Artists in the exhibit include Jennifer (‘oates and Michael
Eade from New York. and Kentucky native Lawrence Tarpey.
After premiering here in Lexington. the exhibition will move
to gallery showings in New York and Dallas.

Ann Tower Gallery: located at 141 East Main St. will show
case the works of German artist Ulrike Hahn.

Hahn's paintings. created in Berlin and Atlanta. feature
scenes she calls "the vastness of a landscape. the ambiance of a
small town. the daily routine of the big city. the tranquility of a
rambling park. [and the] sublimity of a ballroom.”

Ann Tower Gallery will also present the sculpture of
gallery-associated artists such as Stacey Chinn. Suzie Scott.
Robert Tharsing. and Tony Higdon.

Also featured in the Gallery Hop are The Downtown Arts
(enter, Factory 15 Gallery. Gallerie Soleil. and Main Cross

"The Gallery Hop is a good opportunity to check out the
Iexington galleries." said Shawn Long. night manager of Arts
I’lace. “There‘s usually a good crowd getting tipsy on the free
wine. It‘s a lot of fun."

The key for women's success in busi-
ness is to confidently speak up for your-
self and take credit for your work. Henry
said. She recalled an incident in which
she fixed a client‘s problem by working
with a team around the clock in order to
fix the defect.

“Not only was the customer content
with the solution. but (the customer) was
ecstatic about the customer service.“ she

Yet Henry sat back in disbelief as her
boss was promoted and given credit for
the job she had done. She said she soon
got over her anger and realized it was her
own fault for not making the company
aware of her hard work.

She has now changed her ways.

“I stealthily brag and get credit where
credit is due.“ Henry said.

Networking and ignoring distractions
are instrumental parts of a successful ca-
reer. Henry said.







“If you focus on an objective and Sill"
round yourself with good people. you can
basically do anything." she said.

Henry never planned to be on a reali~
ty TV show, but went to an audition with
a friend who asked her to tag along. She
and five others auditioned in the same
room and answered the same question:
How would you handle an irrational

When Henry argued with a man who
said he would just go along with the boss
to make him happy. she said she knew
she had grabbed the producers‘ attention.

“The producers looked at me like. ‘We
love her. She's aggressive. she's feisty;
we'll get some good footage,‘" she said
with a laugh.

Henry quit her six-figure job to be on
the show because she said people tend to
regret things they didn‘t do, rather than
remember the things they did.

“Be willing to take risks." Henry said.
“Be willing to fail. lt's expected."

The audience made up largely of
female entrepreneurs or small business
ovmers seemed encouraged by Henry's

Dottie Carter. a manager at Lynn
Imaging on Vine Street. said she wished

she had heard Henry's presentation 30
years ago. because she's had to struggle
for three decades as an outnumbered fe
male in the Workplace.

But she said more women seem to be
succeeding in business.

"It’s definitely turning
Carter said.

Yet not all the women felt that Henry's
message of assertiveness was positive.

"It will challenge the concept of being
humble." said Dr. Chang Xun. a re-
searcher at UK's VA Hospital. Xun said
even though Henry's boss may have tak-
en credit for her work. it was not Henry's
place to demand it.

“You have to forgive them. rather
than punch them back." Xun said. “Then
they‘ll punch you back. And it's never
going to end."

Steve .lacoby. associate state director
of the Kentucky Small Business Develop
ment Center. said Henry's message of
empowering women was encouraging.
something he‘d like to share with his
three teenage daughters.

"It's about expanding their horizons
and that there's other choices out there."
he said.

Kernel requests opinion
from Attorney General

The Kentucky Kernel
filed a six-page request to At-
torney General Greg Stumbo
yesterday. asking him to do
cide whether UK Police De-
partment policies violate the
Kentucky Open Records Act.

UK Police instituted a
policy of blacking out victim
information on all its inci-
dent reports at the beginning
of the semester. Police have
since added a box on the
forms which enables victims
to choose whether they want
their information released to
the public in an Open
Records request.

“UKPD's overbroad inter-
pretation of the privacy ex-
emption stretches it much
further than it has ever been
interpreted by Kentucky
courts or by the Attorney
General." writes First
Amendment lawyer Jon
Fleischaker of the law firm
Dinsmore & Shohl.

“In fact. in a recent deci-
sion. the Kentucky Court of
Appeals affirmed an Attor<
ney General's Opinion which
addressed the same issues
presented here and explicitly
rejected the actions taken by
UKPD in redacting victims‘
identifying information from
all police incident reports re-


Barbara Jones. interim
general counsel for UK.
wrote to Stumbo on Sept. 3
and requested a similar opin-
ion about these issues. The
Kernel's request contends
the public has a right to
know this information.

"The public has a signifi-
cant interest in being fully
informed about the nature
and details of the crimes
committed in their city and
campus; and police efforts to
deal with these crimes."
Fleischaker writes. “Other-
wise. the public would have
not way of determining
whether UKPD is doing its

Afghan president survives


By Pamela Constable
THE wismncrou POST

KABUL. Afghanistan -—- Afghan President
Hamid Karzai escaped an apparent assassina-
tion attempt yesterday when a rocket was
fired at his helicopter as he was about to land
in a provincial capital. The attack caused no
injuries or damage. but forced Karzai to can-
cel his first trip outside of Kabul since he be
gan campaigning for presidential elections to
be held Oct. 9.

Officials and witnesses said the rocket
flew over a crowd of several hundred people
waiting to greet Karzai near the town of
Gardez. about 80 miles sOuth of Kabul. The
president‘s helicopter was about to land. but
instead immediately returned to Kabul with.
out touching ground.

“We couldn't see it. but we heard the
sound as it went over." said Rafiullah Mo-
jadeddi. an aide to Karzai who had already
landed in a separate helicopter. “There was
no danger to the president."

Karzai played down the incident after his
return to the capital. telling journalists he
wished he could have landed anyway and con-
tinued with the school-opening ceremony he
was scheduled to attend. A spokesman also
said Karzai was “a little upset" that his secu-
rity team insisted he cancel his trip.

But the attack. which was claimed by the
revived Taliban Islamic militia that was ouste
ed from power in 2001. seemed likely to fur-
ther constrain Karzai's ability to campaign
outside the capital as he would like.

Security around Karzai. 47. has been ex-
tremely tight since he survived an assassina-
tion attempt just over two years ago while vis-
iting the southern city of Kandahar. In that
incident. a uniformed gunman jumped in
front of his vehicle and opened fire. wound-
ing several passengers. before being shot by
Karzai‘s security agents.

After that attack. Karzai‘s Afghan body
guards were replaced by a US. security detail
at the Bush administration‘s insistence. and
he has remained largely confined to his heav-
ily guarded palace compound in Kabul.
Karzai. who was named interim president in
December 2001 under a UN. plan. has re.
ceived strong backing from Washington.

Karzai was traveling in a US. military he-
licopter for Thursday‘s trip. A US. military
spokesman here. Maj. Mark McCann. dee
clined to discuss Karzai's means of trans-


portation. but confirmed that a rocket had
been fired at the president‘s helicopter and
had missed. landing several hundred yards
from the school Karzai was to visit.

The pre-election period has been marred
by repeated attacks against voter registration
workers and facilities. mostly carried out by
Taliban forces. The Taliban has vowed to sab-
otage the election —~ the first national poll in
Afghanistan in three decades of war and tur-
moil, and the country's first-ever presidential
election. A purported Taliban spokesman
told news agencies in Kabul by telephone
that the group had fired the rocket at Karzai.
Officials in Gardez. the capital of Paktia
Province. said Thursday night that they had
located the launching site in an abandoned
house and arrested several suspects.

“Security has been a concern during the
voter registration period. and it will be a con-
tinuing concern during the campaign. on vot-
ing day and during ballot counting." Manoel
de Almeida e Silva. the UN. spokesman here.
said Thursday night. "But just as those who
want to spoil the election see this as a target
period. the security forces are prepared to
deal with these threats."

A dozen election workers have been killed
in attacks in the past several months. and
more than 1.000 people been killed in vio-
lence during the last year. including security
troops. Islamic guerrillas. foreign and
Afghan aid workers. The French aid group
Doctors Without Borders withdrew from
Afghanistan on July 28. after more than two
decades operating in the country. after four of
its foreign doctors were killed in a June 2 am-
bush. The group criticized the government
for being unable or unwilling to make arrests
for the murders.

On Aug. 29. a powerful car bomb exploded
in the heart of downtown Kabul. killing at
least seven people. including two Americans.
and injuring several dozen. The blast oc-
curred just outside the office of an American
company that provides security for a variety
of government and private agencies here,

More than 4.000 international peacekeep-
ers currently patrol the capital. and NATO of-
ficials have pledged to send more troops to
protect the election. In addition. some 15.000
American troops are based in Afghanistan.
where US. forces have been hunting for Talv
iban and Al-Qaida fighters since early 2002.
mostly along the rugged border with Pak-
