Spartans, Will
Messer tells us


During the course of every
day. bad things happen
to good people. I've
noticed these things
throughout my life,
and now when I look
back at them. or hear
other people's similar
stories. I almost can't
help but laugh. Let me
relate several of the
”Good Times Gone
Bad" stories I know.

While playing wiffle ball as
a young child, I
watched as my friends
tormented the
neighboring girl by
kicking the ball from
her. The girl became
very frustrated and
took a swing at the
ball with the bat. My
friend, at this very
same instant reaches
down to pick it up so
she wouldn't get it and
CLOCK! She drilled him
with the bat. He got
caught across the face
and hand and was laid
flat on his back. It took
a good two months for
his broken finger to
heal - his fear of
women and wiffle ball
bats still lingers.

Everyone has, at one time
or another, called
"shotgun" in an
attempt to avoid
incarceration in the
back seat of a small
car. While l was with a
group of friends at the
mall one guy decided
to call shotgun as we
were leaving (Note:
shotgun must be called
outside). Therefore, a
mad dash through the


mall ensued. We fought
one another through
the doors and we burst
outside. All of us
frantically screamed
"SHOTGUN" in a panic.
One lady who was
about to enter the mall
screamed and began
crying. Each slowly
realized that the

BSU dissents from GPAC with Ochse

'Close': Platform made the difference



lfthe Greek Political Action (‘ominittee is judge
and jury in Student Govei‘niiient elections. then the
Black Student l'iiion has given its dissenting opinion

After a spirited debate. the BSI.’ endorsed Alyshia
Ochse and Josh Walton Tuesday evening as its choice
for SGA president and yice president.

"We are definitely excited." ()clise said

She noted that the timing oftlie endorsement was
peifect with SGA elections beginning today

“lt shows our desire to work with everybody on
campus." Walton added.

A platform centered on a grassrrmts approach to
fostering student involvement in SGA decision-making
appeared to make the difference with RSI' members

Following timed iiitiwluctions. the candidates
were given one minute to respond to questions asked
by students in the audience

At the outset of the debate. the candidates e\r
plained their stances on traditional issues. such as on
proving communication within \‘GA and with I'K stu
dents in general

However. student questions soon shifted the focus
to more specific topics. such as the allocation of scarce
budget funds. affirmative action. and relations with

black student organirations.

Each candidate expressed support for the preser-
vation of affirmative action programs related to edu-
cation. as well as a commitment to establishing quali
ty relationships with student organi7ations.

Overall. the, candidates were pleased with the de-
bate. and viewed it as a learning experience.

()chse was impressed with the format of the de-
bate. in particular the strict time schedule. which she
felt made candidates speak more candidly.

Vice presidential candidate Chris Schwartz said
he felt the debate gave light to new or perhaps forgot
ten issues.

One such issue. relations between historically
black and historically white Greek organi7ations. is
something that needs to be addressed. Schwartz said.

“I'm Greek. and (the debate) is a good reminder
that we need to come together. and not just for com-
munity service." he said.

Many candidates expressed surprise when a stu-
dent mentioned that no historically black Greek orga-
nization has a house on campus.

“It seems to be a big problem." said presidential
candidate Tim Robinson. “it's like the I'niversity has
put the NI'BIAN council at the back of the line."

Following the debate. 881' members engaged in a
rather lengthy deliberation before returning with
their endorsement.

"It was close." said BSI,’ President Keisha Carter.
“but we feel we made the best choice given what We
know about the candidates "

Donning the wide briinined hat that has become his trade-
mark. (iatewood Galbraith gave his Student Government Asso-
ciation presidential candidate endorsement Tuesday afternoon
at the Free Speech Area. The ticket that now has the backing
of Galbraith is that of’l‘im Robinson and (‘aroline llarralson.

According to 'l‘.l Litafik. Galbraith's former congressional
race campaign manager. Galbraith has a long history with I'K
and he is very concerned with students' rights l.itafik said
that Galbraith was a student at ITK during the Vietnam War
when protesting was at its height l.itafik went on to assure
that Galbraith's support was not politically motivated

“He‘s (Galbraith) not here to promote Gait-wood. he‘s here
because there is one particular ticket that could best represent
all of IIK.” Litafik said. Litafik also noted the symbolism be?
hind speaking at the Free Speech Area because students' free
speech is an issue that Galbraith holds dear.

Another issue that Galbraith spoke on was parking.

"That (parking) was a problem back in the ‘60s when l was
in college. and they haven't fixed it yet."

Gatewood Galbraith was very blunt about the ticket he is
now endorsing.

“It looks like a darn good choice to me." Galbraith said.
Galbraith said when he was speaking to Robinson about en»
dorsing the Robinson Harralson ticket. he was impressed with
the. intelligence of Robinson. As for the ticket in general. Gal-
braith said that he was impressed with the group‘s coalition.
one that includes 1.3 at large and 28 total senators. their focus
and their commitment to the race.

"I didn‘t have as good a structure for my campaign for con
gress as this campaign has." Galbraith said. “I just like what
they stand for. and I‘m here to give my endorsement."

Eric Mills. a first year UK law student and the communi
cations director for Robinson and Harralson. said the candi
dates did not focus on one group in general on campus.

“We are a platform for all students." Mills said.
