Birdfeeders at an off—campus restaurant were
taken down yesterday after nearby store owners
expressed concern over the material used in them.

Phillip Lipsey, a service manager from Orkin
Exterminating Co. in Lexington, installed the feed
ers at the McDonald’s restaurant on Limestone
Street across from Holmes Hall around 1 1 a.m.

The grain in the feeders was mixed with a material
called Avitrol, which upon consumption, causes the
birds to make noises that scares away other birds
from the area, said Susan Kirkpatrick, public rela-
tions manager at the company's headquarters in
Atlanta. Kirkpatrick said the restaurant had an over-
abundance of black sparrows in its parking lot, and
()rkin used a material registered with the Environ-
mental Protection Agency.


After the feeders were put up, McDonald’s
received several phone calls from neighboring busi—
nesses about the material used and its effect on the
birds, and the feeders were removed about 1:15 p.m.
yesterday afternoon.

Bob Andrews, owner of Paisley Peacock, noticed
the feeders while at work and asked Lipsey what he
was doing.

“He told me to ‘mind my own god damn busi—
ness,”’ Andrews said. “He said (the material) would
only ‘disorient’ them.”

Andrews said Lipsey put up four feeders along the
fence separating Paisley Peacock’s and SQecial
Media. Each sat on a metal pole about 10 feet high.
and had a black base and red roof with a black lasso
attached to each roof. Andrews called Environmental

McDonald’s office in Richmond, Ky., and his Coun—
cilperson, but had not been contacted by any of the

Adelstein award wmner, presented to the
disabled student who inspires other stu—
dents at UK, Pamela Hancock has
received the honor.

Hancock, 2 Henderson, Ky. native and
a senior in the five-year special education
program, was nominated by UK learning
specialist Victoria Samson and art educa—
tion professor Donald Hoffman.

“Pam does not see herself as anyone
special,” Samson said; Hancock wants to
pursue her degree and career.

Hoffman said when Hancock, a
quadriplegic, began his class she was not
sure if she would be able to complete all
the Work.

“She began to realize there were ways
for her to adapt her activities," he said.
“She lost her fear of working with the

He said she compiled a journal of her
experiences in the class as a guide for stu-
dents with disabilities.

“She trained me,” Hoffman said. “I
became much more patient and aware of
what it takes to strengthen a student—facul-

teach and after a few years get my master’s
degree," she said.

Hancock said she wants to teach special
education to act as a role model.

“Young people who have disabilities
need role models,” she said. “They need to
know they can compete with the rest of
the world.”

\Vhile at UK, Hancock has worked
with the Lexington bus 5 stem to make
sure all buses are accessi le to disabled
people. Before she graduates, she said she
would like to see the UK Career Center in
the Matthews Building accessible to all
students or have the center moved.

“The whole idea for people, people
with disabilities, to come to college is so
that we can go to work,” she said. “We
need that office and the services there.”

The Carol S. Adelstein Outstanding
Student Award takes its name from the
wife of retired English professor Michael

polio, but raised a family and led an active
ive,” said James Kuder, vice chancellor for

Danzers to I‘thll‘ll
lfll' second 88380"



By James Ritchie
Senior Staff Writer

The Wildcat Danzers have
become so popular in their first
year as the Thoroughbabes, they
have been asked to return next
year .

“People just love them,” said
Walle Gerdts, the Thorough-
blades’ promotions and game
night director.

A fan even called Gerdts to ask
when the Thoroughbabes would
be dancing again, because he
wanted to bring his father, who
was about 80 years old.

The Thoroughbabes have per-
formed at four of the hockey
team’s home games. They will
dance tomorrow at the Thor-
oughblades’ last game of the regu-
lar season.Criticism of the dance
team’s name as sexist by a Lexing-
ton Herald-Leader columnist did
not hase Gerdts or the team.
Ger ts actually appreciated the
media attention because she said it
helped create public interest.

“I think that she could not have
done more for us,” Gerdts said.

Gerdts had the idea for the
name after her husband called her
a “thoroughbabe” when she first
got the job with the organization.

Dawn Walters, the dance
team’s coach, said the team does
not view the moniker as degrad-

“It was just a cute name,” she
said. “Nobody was demeaning us
—- everyone has been fair to us.”

Objection to their name isn’t
the only obstacle the dancers have
had to overcome. They have had

to learn to dance on ice.

A mat measuring 18 feet by 40
feet separates the team from the
ice. But the dancers have still top-
pled to the floor a few times in
practice to the amusement of
security and game workers, said
Meredith Lankster, a senior

“We’d have 25 girls on their
tail ends,” she said.

But they have never fallen dur—
ing a performance. The scratches
the hockey players make on the
ice with their skates provide extra
friction to hold the mat in place.

Unlike a regular show, the
dancers can’t perform their entire
routine facing a single direction
because Rup Arena seats fans on
all sides of the floor. If they did,
many fans would not be able to
see all of the action.

Performances at the hockey
games differ from typical shows in
other ways. The dancers have not
attempted moves that involve
leaping because of space limita—
tions and the danger of sliding.

And the shows have been more
crowd-oriented, Lankster said.
The Thoroughbabes have tried
out themes ranging from funk to
country. Lankster said the Danz-
ers are elated to have the opportu-
nity to return as the Thorough-

“It’s been an absolute blast,”
she said. “We’ve had a lot of sup-

UK Lambda, the gay and les—
bian organization, announced
yesterday they initiated the boy—
cott of the UK Speaks Out on
Sexuality that officials canceled

In a press release, officers and
board members of UK Lambda
said they declined to participate
in the forum because ofjournal—
ism sophomore and Kentucky
Kernel columnist Ben Rich, who
also was scheduled to serve on

“We cannot in good faith or
conscious participate due to the
fact that a known bigot and
homohater had also been asked
to be on the panel,” the release
stated. UK Lambda president
Matt Solberg said he realized
that people have opposing views
on homosexuality, but by serving
on the panel the group would be
accepting homophobic and
homohatrcd views. In yester-
day’s Kernel, Rich said in a col—
umn that he had wanted an open
discussion, and that he would
treat the panelist and audience
with respect, but Solberg dis-

“In terms of whether he could
be able to maintain himself, we
doubted it,” Solberg said. “The
only thing he's done is bash and
show he is hateful.”

Craig Dylan Wyatt, Contem—
porary Affairs Chair of Student
Activities Board, said he chose
Rich because he held a common-
ly held belief on sexuality.

llll Lambda says no
to Speaks Out panel

“(There are) a lot of people
who hold his kind of views that
aren’t ready to come out and
express them and I knew he
would," \Vyatt said.

He defended Rich on the
term “homohater" saying that
people often confuse th his writ
ing style as hate speech, when he
may be joking or using: sarcasm.
\Vyatt echoed Rich's comments
that he would carry on an intelli-
gent coim-rsation.

However, Solberg diszigrccd
saying that what a person writes
mirrors what they think.

“Being a fellow columnist,
who you are. and what you
believe is reflected in what you
write," he said.

\Vyatt said UK Lambda
members told him on Monday
they would not participate in the
panel. Then, faculty members
who were to serve on the panel
also said they would not partici-
pate, which lead to the cancella—
tion of the event.

Wyatt said the session on sex-
uality would be postponed until
the fall semester.

“I decided to put time and
distance between now and then,
(with the idea that) people would
come around to see that Ben
Rich doesn‘t have horns growing
out of his head," \Vyatt said.

Solberg did not know if his
group would participate in the
session if Rich were on the panel
in the fall. “It’s a tough call,"
Solberg said. “I don't know
exactly what we would decide.”

Rich could not be reached for
comment last night.

The UK softball team swings
back this weekend against two
teams from the Magnolia State.

Tonight at 6 p.m. the Cats take
on Mississippi State at the UK
softball stadium off of Alumni
Drive and Ole Miss at 1 pm. Sun-

The \Vildcats will attempt to
redeem themselves after last week-
end‘s poor showing against Geor—
gia when it dropped three of four

Ole Miss defeated UK earlier

in the season, so revenge may be
on the Cats’ minds.

“1 don't think they should have
beat us back then,” center fielder
jacqueline Haynes said, “and I
definitely don't think they should
come in here and beat us on our
home field,"

Big performances are needed
from some of UK’s key players to
win this weekend and lose its last-
place Southeastern Conference

Kcary Camunas is a hot (lat
going into this weekend, coming
off a career-high 11 strikeouts on
\Vcdnesday night against Dayton.



Camunas also had a good day at
the plate, going 2-for-3.
She has one of the highest bat-

ting averages on the team but only

a andfu of plate appearances
because she has been concentrat-
ing on her pitchin .

“I like to hit," (glamunas said. “I
just haven't got much of a chance
this season."

Coach Beth Kirchner said she
is pleased with (Inmunas' prowess
at the )late, but her main focus
should e pitching.

“Keary has a real good softball
experience coming from Califor-
nia, and she has a lot ofconfidcncc
up at the plate," Kirchner said. “If
she continues to pitch well, we will
allow her to hit, but if her pitching
suffers then \\'L' will take hcr out of
the lineup, because the pitching
aspect is definitely more important
to us.

Another (Iat who is expected to
turn in a good performance this
weekend is Haynes.

Haynes played for L'K's club
softball team for the past two


years, and has become a major
asset to the team in its first year as
a varsity sport.

“She has been a Godsend for
us,” Kirchner said. “She has
shown a lot of maturity and in
dealing with 13 freshmen she has
been a real stabilizing force for

Since the injuries to Meredith
Scales and Brooke Tilley, the team
has called upon Haynes to help

She has moved into two very
new roles as center fielder and
lead—off hitter.

“It was hard at first because
center field was the one position
that I had not played in my entire
life," Haynes said. “I'm comfort-
able playing anywhere in the out—
field now."

Kirchner said she is happy with
the performance of her new center

“She's played real solid for us,"
Kirchner said. “I don't want to say
I'm surprised, but she has done an
exceptional job."

Chris Rock has found himself,
and he‘s not Li’l Penny.

Sure he’s eat as Pennv Hard-
away’s marionette sidekick in
those Nike commercials. But Rock
is a standup comedian, and on his
second album of standup material,
Roll lVitb the New, he proves he's
among the best in his field.

Ex )lorin current issues more

Rock rolls through salvos at
Vl'ashington. l).C. mayor Marion
Barry, wondering how the trou-
bled politician ever got a ticket to
the Million Man March.

“You know what that means?"
he asks. “It means even in our
finest hour, we had a crackhead on

ock lam oons black people
who claim t at only a negative
stereotype perpetuated by the
media has given African-Ameri—
cans a bad name.

“You think I got three guns in


in house cause the media’s out-

“Ted Kop )el ain’t never taken shit
from me. 'hen 1 go to the money
machine, I ain’t looking over my
shoulder for the media.”

Don‘t be fooled by those shots,
thou rh. Rock doesn't spare anv-
one Efrom his biting humor. He
lets white folks have It, too —
especiall ' when he launches into a
tirade about the 0.]. Simpson
murder trial. A mostly white yury,
Rock says, would‘ve reached much
the same verdict.

Had the jury been white and
“that was .lerry Seinfeld charged
with double murder and the only
