he said.

The lobby

Smith has two entrances.
one facing Kirwan II and a11-
other facing the Cooperstown
Apartments. Both are card~ac~
tivated and equipped with se~

curity cameras.

The building opens into a
large entrance foyer with
hardwood floors where the
front desk is located.

To the left of the front
desk is a large. open lounge
area where the fireplace and a
plasma television are located.
Crutcher said the area will
have lounge furniture and
can serve as a gathering place
for students. This common
area is also equipped with

wireless Internet.

Across to the lounge is a
classroom that will hold about
41) tables and chairs. The
room is Internet accessible
and eventually will be made a
smart classroom. The class-
room will offer programs tied
to living-learning communi-
ties and firstyear initiatives
such as UK 101.

50 percent bigger than those

UK police unveil program to warn, ti


UK Police are continuing their
campaign against jaywalking and also
looking into adding crosswalks to help
keep pedestrians safe.

Capt. Kevin Franklin is leading the
effort through the Pedestrian Aware

“(We want people to) be aware that
we have about as many people driving
on the road as we have walking on the
street. and we have to share it."
Franklin said. “We‘re trying to keep
people from getting hurt.“

Public Safety Director Ken Clevi

With AlDS art

By Nathan Thacher


The South Asian tsunamis of the past months gener-
ated a media maelstrom and a subsequent outpouring of
love and support from caring individuals worldwide.

It is this same spirit that led two UK students to cre-
ate a terrifying yet inspiring art project named “The

Silent Tsunami."

which is instead an expression of the

anguish and desolation left in the wake of AIDS.
"The piece represents the connection between insane.
acute tragedy like the tsunami and a chronic. slow and

equally devastating tragedy like AIDS."
"This is the greatest hu-

niedical student Trip Sweeney.
man catastrophe of our time."

said second—year

Sweeney worked with sophomore agriculture and art

student Griffin \an'yleter to cre
ate the piece which will be fea
tured at the Gallery Soleil on
Short Street dur ing tonight s
Gallery Hop.

The eight-foot tsunami wave
was constructed out of 2.500
small wooden crosses to repre-
sent the number of people who
die of AIDS every eight hours
worldwide. The crosses were ini-
tially made by the UK Medical
School to decorate the bowl in
from of WT. Young Library on
World AIDS Day on Dec. 1.

“We chose this medium be-
cause of the lasting power of
advocacy art. It‘s meant to in-
cite people to action." Van-
Meter said. The proceeds gen:
erated by the exhibit will go to
the Touching Tiny Lives or-
phanage in Lesotho. Africa.
and Wola Nani. a non-profit
group that embraces HIV posi»
tive women in South Africa.

The focus of their ef-
forts is simply to raise aware-
ness among l'K students of
just how many different ways a
person can contribute to the
battle against the AIDS epi-
dcrnic. “(The [S has) the med-
ication. the money and the
knowledge. and yet we don't do
anything. It‘s really sad." Van-

are designed so the MS can monitor the whole

she said.

The North Hall has a fine arts living-learn-

The new dorms are the first residence halls
to be built at UK since the Kirwan-Blanding

Although the new dorm rooms cost $1.250 a

Singer- songwriter Sam Beam of Iron and Wine has garnered mainstream fame thanks, in part, to 2004's Gar-

“Ben (lead singer of the

rate because he wants to.

Anyway. within the past



year a “Clothing-Optional
Dinner“ has attracted nud—
ists to Manhattan who want-
ed to remind everyone they
eat while they’re naked.

This monthly dinner club
was created to give nudists a
non-outdoor non-resort place
to socialize. enjoy good food
and hang their hats and
pants and underWear.

The news story quoted
one man as saying it was “ex-
citing" to be naked in a
restaurant. Well it's also “ex-
citing" to the UK parking of-
fice when another car flies by
on the back of a tow truck.

()f course. nudists are
something I don't generally
want to see in the first place.
There‘s always been a dis-
turbing trend amongst nud-
ists that to be a nudist you
have to look like Dennis
Franz from “NYPD Blue."

Now I‘m not cracking
jokes for the sole sake of tick-
ing off nudists. but I‘d like to
do a little bit of forward
thinking here. I don‘t want
nudists to come after me be-
cause. well. they can run
faster without clothing.

This nude dinner club is
“so far so good" for the Big
Apple. but how Would this
shake m Lex Vegas? Not too
well I Would imagine.

"What happens in Lexing-

ton stays in Lexington“
would likely be the new city
motto. Which. coincidentally,
was stolen by some Gatlin~
burg. Tenn. gift shops for
use on T-shirts and other
souvenirs. 1 strongly doubt
that anything happening in
Gatlinburg is going to either
have any reason to stay in
Gatlinburg or would be
worth talking about in the
first place.

But anyway. scrap the wa-
ter company debate. move
over smoking ban compa-
ny's coming for dinner. And
they‘re buck-naked.

How funny would it be to
see such a restaurant open
its doors here? And what if
the idea went beyond a day-
time restaurant? What about
a naked Starbucks?

Who would be seen in
such a fictitious nude dinner
in Lexington? Vice Mayor
Mike Scanlon and UK Presi-
dent Lee Todd —~ certainly
not. And I doubt Mayor Tere
sa Isaac or Tubby Smith
would show up either.

Of course this is probably
not going to happen in Lex-
ington anytime soon. so I‘m
going back to Keeneland! The
only naked things there are

Athens a

By um Collier

The bad thing about Ken-
tucky weather is that it‘s un-
predictable. erratic and
sometimes volatile. The
good thing? When that same
weather is being as dis-
agreeable as a medium
cheese stick the morning af-
ter a night out. the state is
within a day’s driving of
warm breezes and cool sand.

Enter the greatest of all
college traditions: the road

Athens. Ga..
place to start.

Home of the University
of Georgia. the unique enti-
ty surrounding Athens is
the fact that it‘s truly a col
lege town. Downtown is lit-
tered with students. bars
and eateries unique to the
city. The roads are just glori-
fied sidewalks after 6 pm.
because no one is — or
should be — driving down-
town after that time.

Over 50 bars populate
three square miles in down-
town Athens.

The popular bars are all
fairly new and most have
fun themes. Known as the
“big three." Chaser‘s. Fire-
house and The Ritz are all
located on Clayton Street
within a stone‘s throw of
each other.

Chaser’s had the cheap-
est drinks and an even bet-
ter happy hour. The island
theme of the bar was com-
plete with surfboards that
lined the walls.

Firehouse is directly
next to Chasers's and fea-
tures a “power hour“ from 9
pm. to 10 pm. that features

dollar drinks. The decor of
choice seems to have noth-
ing to do with the name of
the bar, as there are hun-
dreds of bras hanging from
the ceiling. The dance floor
and good music is reminis-
cent of old-school Varsity

The Ritz is a huge dance
style club. The lighting sys-
tem is amazing and the
sound system is more of the
same. The Ritz had a band
playing when I was in town.
and seemed like a great
place to watch live music.
Another room featured DJ's
spin off against each other
and dance. This bar was fur-
thest from anything in the

The fratty bars. on the
other hand. bared a lot of re-
semblance to the bars at UK.
The best fratty bar was the
Boar's Head. which mir-
rored Two Keys. This bar
was eerily similar. complete
with an outdoor patio.
crowded indoor dance floor
and sometimes-strict bounc-
ers. The environment there
was mostly a Greek popula-

The more chill. laid back
bars are what set Athens
apart from Lexington. Set
amidst the crazy downtown
scene. The Village Idiot is an
older crowd in a smaller set-
ting. The music volume is
really low and if you listen
real hard. you can almost
hear the noise from the “big
three“ across the street.

The winery was also
laid-back with low music
floating through the air.
This place seemed like it
was a great place for a girl to

get a flavored martini. even
though I didn't partake.

The regional charm that
is Athens has its strong
suits in local bars. The
eateries. however. make it a
great place for a road trip.
Again. in the three-block ra-
dius in the downtown area.
there are over 50 places to
get a bite from chain restau-
rants from Outback Steak—
house to Subway. to things
you‘ve never heard of. but
will always talk about after
eating there.

The top three local eater-
ies in Athens were Barberi-
to's. Caliente Cab and Taco
Mac. All three had Mexican
food themes. Barberitos was
similar to Chipotle or Q-
doba. but the burritos were
bigger and the atmosphere
was a total college environ-

The Caliente Cab was an-
other cheap Mexican place.
Outside seating and umbrel-
las at each table was the best
part of the restaurant. An-
other unique ingredient:
you can bring your own a1-
cohol. This restaurant is
great for a boys/girls only
road trip v it has a great
hangout atmosphere.

Taco Mac. more of the
cheap Mexican food. boasts
an amazing “Wall of Beer"
with over 80 beers on tap. If
you decide to go more than a
couple times. you can join
the Passport Club and try
every beer on the menu to
get your name on a plaque.
The 45 TV screens are also a

The Student Activities Board and the

presents the last Spotlight Jazz of the year
Sunday night with Sandip Burman in
Memorial Hall.

Sunday will be Burman's second perfor-
mance at UK. His first performance was in
2003 as a part of the multicultural pro-
gramming board for SAB.

“His performance. the last time he was
here. sold out." said Nikki Wooton. director
of Spotlight Jazz for SAB.

“He will be a nice way to end the series
since he is such a talented. crowd-pleasing

Burman is known best for his ability to
play the tabla. which is similar to a drum.

His sounds and rhythms are fast with
precision. His performances are full of
spontaneous innovations and tonal purity:
It includes both common and rare rhythms.

“His music is unique in sound because
he incorporates Indian music with jazz."
Wooton said. “We try to bring a diverse col—
lection of events that appeal to all students
on campus.“

Burman is a native of India and discov-
ered his talent at the age of six when one of
