Women and men at UK “work in

Alcohol ads deceive,
speaker at UK says

Staff Writer

Although the media are supposed
to be objective, one expert says
they're not doing theirjob.

300 students in Worsham Theater
last night on ”Under the Influence

ness Week at UK.

In a slide presentation, Kilboumc
expressed tier concem about adver-
tisers‘ ability to sell perverse atti-
tudes about alcohol.

Magazines “sell themselves" to
advertisers to make their publica
tions more desirable to advertising

tention to the meaning ol ads,“ she
said. “From an early age, we be-

that alcohol has been the cause ol

“I am not advocating a ban on al»

Kilboumc contended that there

Argentinian Connection

UK golf connects with South American talent

Staff Writer

In the world of golf, Argentina is
not generally considered a recruiting
hotbed for college coaches.

But if the UK mens‘ and womens'
golf teams are to succeed this year,
it will be in large part due to a pair
of golfers front the South American

Coming to UK from Buenos
Aires, Alan Horowitz and Dolores
Nava have been exceptional addi-
tions to already strong Wildcat golf
programs and could play a large role
in the squads‘ postseason plans.

The Wildcats have yet to win a
toumament in the fall season, but
there have been signs that the team
is improving and could finish strong
in the spring.

Horowitz. a redshirt junior, has
been leading the charge.

“Alan (Horowitz) is coming on
faster than anyone on our team,"
said mens‘ coach Tom Simpson.
“He worked extremely hard this past
summer and just continues to im~
prove every time he goes out on the
course. He's been a great surprise
for the team,"

The Lady Kats. on the other hand.
have won mo of their tour tourna-
ments and have earned a No. ‘i na-
tional ranking. Almost a lock lot a
postseason tournament bid, the Rats
have enjoyed the strong play of
Nava. a sophomore. in her first two

“I guess you‘d call it lucky or fate

that we have Dolores (Nava) on the
team," said womens’ coach Bettie
Lou Evans. “She's just been won-

The lucky twist of fate Evans re-
fers to is how Nava wound up at
UK. In the middle of Horowitz’s
redshirt freshman season at UK, he
was called by his country to play in
the Argentine Junior Amateur Tour-
nament. Horowitz told Evans about
Nava, who was still a senior in high
school, and the womens‘ coach
made the longest recruiting trip of
her coaching career.

“Alan‘s sister was a graduate as-
sistant at UK and that‘s how he got
here," recalled Evans. “I just hap-
pened to ask him if he knew of any
good girls (golfers) in Argentina.
He told me about Dolores and I
made the trip during spring break. I
got to see Dolores play and I really
liked what I saw.”

Ironically, neither Horowitz or
Nava played high school golf in
Buenos Aires, Golf is not, needless
to say, the sport of choice in Argen-

Both Horowitz and Nava began
their athletic careers in different

Horowitz began in the brutal
sport of rugby. He played on his
Saint Luke‘s High School rugby
team \\ hich won two national cham-
pionships. But after hurting his back
in a rugby contest. Horowitz traded
in his cleats for a pair of golf spikes.

Nava competed in a wide array of
amateur toumaments during her

high school years at Escuela Na-
cional Normal School, earning acco-
lades of a true star. In I988 she won
the South American Championship
in Uruguay and represented Argenti—
na in the World Cup in Sweden. She
was also a two-time Gold Cup mem-

Now the two budding stars will
try to make their mark on the UK
golf program.

“Golf is much harder here than in
Argentina,” said Nava. “There
aren’t many good players there and
the courses are much easier —— slow-
er greens and shorter holes."

“In Argentina, golf is much more
of an exclusive sport," said Horo-
witz. “It’s a much more competitive
environment here. I had trouble ad-
justing at first, but I think the com-
petition makes you a better player."

One of the only knocks on Horo-
witz in his first two seasons was his
lack of confidence.

In 1990, Horowitz — and Nava
—— seem to have gained the confi-
dence needed to put up good scores.

”I have been working really hard
and I think we have a chance to be a
good team at the end of the year,”
said Horowitz. “I want the team to
win the SEC and go to the NCAA
(tournament). I know we have the
guys that can do it and I want to
help them."

“We will definitely be in the
(NCAA) tournament," said Nava.
“That‘s what we’ve all been work-
ing so hard for and I think it will

out and proved them wrong.”

In a way, the respect Mother Na-
ture gave the Reds during their
homecoming celebration was typical
of the respect the team received
throughOut the season.

Even before the season started,
the media was picking Cincinnati to
finish in the lower half of the Na-
tional League's Western Division.
Some went so far as to predict a
last-place finish for a team which
finished in fifth place in 198*).

But Cincinnati won the West.

The same writers then said the
Reds would fall to the Eastern Divi<
sion champs. the Pittsburgh Pirates.
but the Reds won the National
League Championship Series four
games to two.

And then the icing on the cake
the mighty Oakland A‘s.

No one gave Cincinnati a chance
to even compete with the boys from
the Bay, predicting a sweep of the
World Series. They were right.
There was a sweep, but the team do»
ing the sweeping wore the gray uni-

"Extremities." a very important play, opens at 8 tonight at
LTK‘s Briggs Theatre, 127 Fine Arts Building.

It would be a disservice to playwright William Mastrosimone
if one said that “Extremities” is about rape. While rape is the
focus of the emotionally draining play. “Extremities” also tells
us a lot about society and the way it treats issues.

As one of the actresses in UK's production remarked, too of—
ten society sees rape as being about sex. Society also is guilty
of trying to distance itself from the issue, preferring to treat
rape as something that does not happen in one’s neighborhood.
residence hall or apartment building.

Rape also is about domination. It is about individuals violat—
ing others" autonomy and forcing them to satisfy their desires.
Rape is slavery. because it reduces a human being to a mere
object, for which no one in a civilized society should stand.

"Extremities" will run through Saturday night, and each per-
formance will be followed by a post-show discussion conduct-
ed by the Lexington Rape Crisis Center.

We applaud the UK Theatre Department and the play‘s direc-
tor. Bruce Lecure. for being so bold to produce a play that car-
ries such a strong and important message for us to ponder.

"Extremities" is an excellent example of a member of the
University community taking Chancellor for the Lexington
Campus Robert Hemenway’s Lexington Agenda to heart. Othv

As the play’s lead actress. Rebecca Davis, remarked. too of-
ten people want theater to entertain them and take them away
from the squalor of the real world. Escaping reality for a while
is nice. but it’s also important that we face up to it.

Lack of coverage showed
Kernel bias against LCC


By Wynona Johnson-Rowe


l was elated. to say the least.
when I heard that Maria Moore won
the l090 UK Homecoming Queen

I voted for her because she is an
excellent student at Lexington Com-
munity College.

Moore has a uniquely marvelous
personality. Besides being a single
parent. she is a role—model scholar
and a friend that l have known for
years via The Mayor‘s Career &
Training Center, a state agency that
supports us in our academic goals.

I have long heard that lfK consid—
ers its “sister school," l.(‘C. to be
comparably an inferior institution.
However, I am not one to go much
for gossip. despite the credibility of
the sources.

Nevertheless, after noticing that
the Kentucky Kernel practically
otntttetl acknowledging Moore‘s
outstanding achievement as the first
UK Homecoming Queen to be an
LCC student. I am inclined to be-
llCVC that the Kernel staff dnm dis-
criminate against LCC students.

The recent short story of Moore in
the Kentucky Kernel included no
picture or elaborate congratulatory

I know very well, as l have read
the Kernel for years, that the Kernel
staff would have “rolled out the red
carpet and paraded for days in
script“ had the Winner been a tradi-
tional lJK recipient!

She (the PK loser or past lIK
Homecoming Queens; would have
effortlessly made the Kentucky Ker-

leadership needed

Mcrcdith Little, in an Oct. 2 col-
umn, referred to the governor of
Kentucky as a crook and the lottery
as a scam Little needs to be remind-
ed that, whether or not one casts a
vote for the indiVidual in office, re-
spect is due the office.

Advanced education is desirable,
mmy of us agree, but it obviously
does not guarantee wisdom or good
manners and sensitivity.

nel’s front page. Her acknowledge»
ments. no doubt, would have been
in large script accompanied by an
overblown picture and a half-page

I honestly feel that Moore de~
served a better review.

She is. equally, a line well-
rounded young lady with as superior
potential as any UK Homecoming
Queen that has preceded her reign.

'l‘he Kernel story ofMonre was. in
my opinion, the understatement 0f
the year,

This unfortunate observation
caused me to question the Kemel‘s
attitude and ethics that perhaps are
not gossip but a clear implication
that reiterates a shameful untruth
the Kentucky Kernel, UK's campus
voice. obviously considers L(‘C stu~
dents to be “little or nothing kind-

I hope that I am wrong about this.
Perhaps you guys are not as bad
as they say you are. 1 would certain-
ly like to think that UK and the Ker-
nel stall have no prejudices against
(us) LCC's students or Moore.

However, the Kernel is carelessly
feeding a sensitive and bad reputa‘
tion ol being LCC‘s (our) “ansto-
cmticacademic. snobbish rivalry"
when those kind of mistakes are

It would be in the Kernel staff‘s
best interest to avoid such “ohvrous
intimidations" in the future.

Thank you for your attention. I of-
ten enjoy your paper ..- whenever it
is unbiased and non-discriminatory.

To be a good leader, one must
learn how to follow. A number of
states have lotteries, and, although l
was active with a group that con—
ducted telephone surveys to discou-
rage the lottery in Kentucky, 1 have
never considered it a scam.

I thought Little‘s verbiage was ir.
responsible and unnecessary. Every
individual and situation can be im-
proved; howevcr, we need to open
our eyes to the facts and not pursue
the foolishness.

Statistics show a very poor tum-
out from student voters in the major-

These horizon questions can only be asked
and answered by the humanities.
