Four killed in
Park 6in auto accident

Park City, Ky. — A tractor—trailer rig veered
off Interstate 65 and smashed into a police cruiser
and a van that the officers had stopped, killing
four people and injuring three others \Vednesday.

N0 reports on
rumored rapist

Melanie Jackson
Stafl Writer

Not eve one is a friend, says Rebecca
Langston, K police assistant chief. This is
important to keep in mind in light of recent
rumors of a serial rapist.

The UK police say the rumors are just that -
rumors. Langston says UK police have had no
reports of non-aquaintance rapes this year.
Langston says several women have told the UK
police rapes are occurring but not being reported.

angston says re rtin rape benefits everyone.
She does not be ieve tEe rumors of unreported
rapes are substantial.

Langston says if rapes are reported, UK police
will t the information out through flyers.

K police and Lexington police agree. “There
is no serial rapist. Let's do away with all the
rumors and panic,” says Lexington police Sgt.
Mike Roe.

Roe says no two reported rapes appear similar.

There were no true coffee
houses in downtown Lexington
or the campus corridor in 1992.
This changed when Common
Grounds was constructed in the
ground floor of a building that
formerly housed a grocery at 343
East High St.

\Vhen owners Bo, Lucia, Moe
and Ron bought the establish-
ment in August of 1995, the cof-
fee shop was already making the
transition from being frequented
b graduate students, profession-
al; and local business owners to

Now Common Grounds
plans to make another change
when it begins offering an exten-
sive wine list, says Ron List, one
of the co-owners.

In addition to house wines, a
wine list of about a dozen other
more expensive wines will be
available for $3 to $5 dollars a
glass, or $18 to $24 dollars a bot-

The prices for the alcoholic
beverages are a dramatic jump in
comparison to the dollar-and—a-

Common Grounds coffee shop will prohibit minors after 6 p.7n.

quarter cups of coffee that have
become a staple to the mostly
under-21 coffeehouse crowd.

To change a formula that
seems to draw so many kids on
Fridays and Saturdays might
raise some eyebrows, but simple
economics explains why things
are changing so much.

In a separate move, owners of
the popular campus hangout also
opted to implement a minimum
admittance age of 18 for peo le
who want to enter the shop a er
6 pm.

“We want to expand our
products and are attempting to
attract an older crowd,” List said.

Before today’s change , estab-
lishment owners had a problem
with kids entering and occupying
a table for hours.

List explained that the owners

put everything into the shop and
find it quite frustrating to be
taken advantage of.

Because Common Grounds
will continue to serve cakes,
croissants, muffins and other
bakery products, it is not
required by law to restrict ado-
lescents from the premesis, but
the decision was made to curb
the number of “campers.”

Parking has also been a minor
problem, evidenced by a warning
at the doors stating that the adja-
cent lots will tow your car. List
isn’t too concerned about the

roblem with available parking
by the High-on-Rose building.

But the owners are confident
that they can make the change.

“It’ll work —- it’s what needs
to be done,” List said. “It will
appeal to more people.”

The summer music scene gets
a push this weekend as Lynagh’s
hosts two acts that are sure to
keep even the most picky music
lovers tapping their toes.

Alejandro Escovedo is an
Austin, Texas native who has
been compared to Townes Van
Zandt, Tom Waits and Leonard
Cohen. With These Hand: is his
most recent release and spans a
wide range of musical styles ven-
turi from the grungy aoundin
“Litte Bottles” to the soulfu
country sound of “Nickel and a
Spoon with guest Willie Nel—

Escovedo also takes full
advantage of a variety of instru-
ments incorporating string
arrangements on “Slip” and “Put
It Down”, sparse piano and
acoustic guitar work on “Tired
Skin” and a wildly rcuaaivc
beat on the title track ighli ht-
ing the work of none other t an

comes to

Escovedo's niece Sheila B. (so
that’s what the E. stands for!) and
brother Pete, who has worked
with Santana on various projects.

It is hard to imagine Escovedo
as a punk but that is just how he
started out in the early seventies
when he formed The Nuns.
Eventually they would become
one of San Francisco’s most leg-
endary punk bands opening for
the Sex Pistols final gig at Win-

Escovedo would later move
back to Texas—and form the high-
Kinfiuential -punk band,

ank and File after which he
formed the band True Believers

with his brother Javier. They

went on to become a legendary
live band and recorded two
albums on the EM] label.

A disappointing break-up of
the Believers led to a move to
Austin where Escovedo went on
to rform with his own
“orcffeestra” that might number
from six to thirteen pieces on any
given night.


With such a wide range of
styles, it’s hard to imagine what
tricks Escovedo will pull out of
his bag for Saturday night’s show,
but it is sure to get a rockin' start
when the show opens with the
Philadelphia band Go To Blazes.

Reminiscent of the Jayhawks
and Uncle Tupelo, Go To Blazes
is a fiery foursome with a coun-
try twang and crunchy guitar

u’aiting Around For the Crash,
the bands most recent release on
the East Side Digital label, shows
the many faces of Go ’12) Blazes
as it soars from hard-edged
country blues on “New Morning
Sun” and “Talk About Me” to
lilting mandolin and acoustic
work on son such as " hoid
Ma " and " eddy Got Rol ed”.

cad down to Lynaghs on
Saturday night for a show that
will please as much for it’s musi-
cal varie as it will your pocket
book. A mission is $5 at the
door, and the show stars around
10 pm.

Water Company, located 15
miles west of Lexington. serves
two functions for UK: it is a

VVith the library’s information
overload and the rise of bottled
water drinkers, UK has become a
major account for Highbridge

too dry,” said Greg Breeding,
Highbridge. Plant Manager.

In the winter three acres fill
with R.V.s and boats. Oddities
such as Fayette Mall’s Christmas
decorations and Lexmark print-
ers are nestled on shelving.

The quarry is also marked
earthquake proof: “they’ve done
geological studies that show cav-
ities in the earth move with the

age is the spot where the shock

Lang, off-site Vault Librarian.

acquired by the present owner in

considered an undesirable piece

Bill Griffin and his 5 daugh—

Cleaning out the cave, Griffin
had to battle a stream of water

He conquered it by bottling

While Fitch credits Bob and
Ziggy Marley as personal inspi-
rations, the name’s resemblance
to ‘rasta’ is only coincidence.

The name Rostulara actually
was an idea of John’s brother
Nate, the drummer. Fitch
explains that Rostulara was the
name of a poem written by the
14th century Italian poet, Petrar-

The three founding members,
John Fitch, Nate Fitch and Rob
Rainwater, originally began play-
ing music when they were 15
years old.

After high school, the band
(not yet Rostulara) split up and

only played sporadically.

Fitch met the future bass
player, Bud Ratliff, while attend-
ing Asbury College. In 1993,
Fitch introduced Ratliff to his
brother Nate and Rainwater.
Ever since, Rostulara has been
playing strong in the Kentucky,
Ohio, Tennessee and Indiana

Rostulara enjoys playing local
gigs. They played at the First
Annual Churchill Downs Music
Fest on Monday with the Blue-
berries and will play at Jefferson
Davis Inn tonight.

John Fitch also says that the
addition of new keyboard player
Charles Ellis has allowed the

music to expand and mature.

“Our guitar player Rob used
to be playing literally two or
three parts at a time,” Fitch said.
“Charles has allowed Rob’s parts
to stand out and become signa-
ture components of our music.”

In many ways, Ellis can be
seen as a saving grace. According
to Fitch, “Charles really helped
the band remain lighthearted.
He was the spark we needed to
keep doing what we’ve been
doing. He was a kick in the pants
and a kiss on the cheek.”

One thing can be said about
Rostulara: they are a team. Most
of the guys are friends on and off
the stage which adds to the secu-
rity of their music. Rocking new
keyboard player Charles Ellis in
tow, it appears Rostulara has no
place to go but up.

Fuel up the Winnebago and
spray on the insect repellent; it’s
camping season once again.

Kentucky offers a variety of
opportunities to forsake the
comforts of the modern home
for a chance to bond with Moth—
er Nature.

Red River Gorge Geological
Area in the Daniel Boone
National Forest, in Stanton, Ky.,
is the most popular campsite area
among UK students, said Oliver
Bingcang, a sociology senior
who works at the UK Outing

“There should be a little
something for everyone (at Red
River Gorge),” Bingcang said.
The site has a large number of
trails for hiking or camping, but
they are somewhat primitive.

A network of trails form the
Red River Gorge National

Recreational Trail, allowing hik-
ers to travel longer distances.
