Wilkinson’s budget puts state lawmakers in a hard spot

Associated Press

FRANKFORT, Ky. -— The docu-
ments containing Gov. Wallace
Wilkinson‘s budget proposals are
colored black and blue.

How appropriate.

The color scheme may be indica-
tive of the bruising political pugil-
ism that is certain to result as Wil-
kinson promotes his plan to spend
$8.5 billion in the coming two
years and raise taxes by $1 billion
in the process.

There had been clues that Wil-
kinson was abandoning the higher-
taxes-over-my-dead-body position

that got him elected in 1987.

During the course of some calcu-
lated announcements on various ar-
eas of the budget, it became clear
that Wilkinson was either going to
have to drop a couple of cabinets or
raise taxes.

Still, when the other shoe finally
dropped, it hit with a thud in legis-
lative land.

The initial reaction was one of
stunned surprise. Almost universal~
ly, legislators agreed they never
thought Wilkinson would advocate
any kind of tax increase, let alone
one that ran into 10 digits.

Once the shock wore off, the sus-
picion set in.

Higher education
praises Wilkinson

for budget proposal

Executive Editor

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Council
of Higher Education members
unanimously passed a resolution
yesterday supporting Gov. Wallace
Wilkinson's budget proposal, say-
ing his effort to help state universi-
ties is an “act of faith.”

“I think it's the best thing that's
happened to us in years," said Ter-
ry McBrayer, a Lexington attorney
and council member. “It helps us
move forward in a big way. It
really is an unexpected surprise."

Wilkinson was praised for his
generous budget proposal, which
calls for a $206 million increase in
higher education funding. The
measure still has to be approved by
state legislators, but CHE members
said that Wilkinson‘s proposal is a
reason enough to celebrate.

“What seemed weeks ago to be
an insolvable impasse between the
governor and General Assembly
has now yielded to consensus,“
council member Morton Holbrook
said. We may do for Kentucky
this coming decade what has not
been accomplished in 100 years.”

The CHE, a l7-member panel
based in Frankfort, serves as a co-
ordinating board for the state’s
eight universities and 14 communi-
ty colleges. Its primary responsibil-
ities include setting tuition and de-
veloping statewide plans for higher

Its main focus yesterday, howev~
er, was a little different.

Gary Cox, CHE's executive di-
rector, said that Wilkinson’s efforts
to improve higher education indi-
cated a “step in the right direction,
and one we were excited about."

Holbrook, an Owensboro attor-
ney, said Wilkinson‘s achievement
is almost unprecedented.

People are beginning to realize
that it’s time to “reach the goal all
of us seek —— to pull Kentucky off
the bottom of higher education," he

CHE member Michael N. Har-
reld said that Wilkinson's attitude
toward higher education may have
changed during the last 18 months.

In that span, he said, the govem-
or was able to understand the role
universities like Morehead State
and Louisville play in helping the

“The attention we have paid, the
responsiveness, led to this act of
faith," Harreld said. “It’s a start.
We have to make sure it's imple-

Jim Hill, the student rcprcsenta~
tive on CHE, applauded Wilkin-
son‘s proposal, saying it “breathes
new life into higher education.“

“It's sort of the dawn of a new,
progressive era for higher educa-
tion,“ Hill said.

Hill said the budget ensures pros—
perity for schools like UK for years
to come, allowing faculty members
to complete their mission and stu—
dents “to be sure (that) their educa-
tion is secure."

What worries Hill, however, is
that students, faculty and CHE
members — who just last year had
a doom-and-gloom attitude —
arcn’t doing cartwheels over Wil-
kinson’s proposal.

“Here we have the greatest
educational budget in probably 30
years from a governor who had a
great reservation about higher edu-
cation,“ Hill said. “If you told
(CHE members) a year ago that this
was going to happen, they would
have said, ‘No way.m

muzvémmm 'adi

CHE members Michael Harreld, left, and Garry Cox discuss Gov.
Wallace Wilkinson‘s budget proposal yesterday in Louisville.


The more conspiratorial among
the members imagined all sorts of
scenarios wherein Wilkinson was
setting the General Assembly up to
take a fall.

The most popular was that Wil-
kinson had proposed something so
large, so politically unpalatable that
the governor knew legislators could
not accept it.

The theory continued that even if
legislators agreed to such a large
tax increase, but substituted their
own plan, Wilkinson would try to

brand them as shameless tax-

Bits and pieces of historical fact
were used to substantiate the th()<

First, legislators seemed inclined
to substitute a 2-cent increase in
the general sales tax for some of
the more politically explosive parts
of Wilkinson‘s plan.

The hit parade started with his
cigarette tax, then the services tax
and finally the idea to eliminate the
deductibility of federal income tax
payments from state income tax li»

Wilkinson has promised to veto
any increase in the general rate of

sales or income taxes.

Conspiracies aside, Wilkinson
had done a masterful Job ot setting
expectations Wllh his periodic
peeks at his proposed budget and
then defining his own tax package
as something other than a real tax

Some legislators grumbled that
Wilkinson was guilty of “defini—
tional avmdance,” proposing a tax
increase but calling it something
else —— the equivalent of staring at
a horse and swearing it's a cow.

lndecd, Wilkinson calls his plan
“revenue revitalization," which
sounds like some sort of a patent
medicine cure.

Wilkinson also boasted that his
plan Wlll mean more money out of
the pockets of only the rich few, 8
claim that may not bear up well to

chcnhclcss, Wilkinson said, “I
think it l\ lair to ask those few who
haven’t been paying their fair share
to come on down and help the rest
of us pull the wagon."

Wilkinson promised to sell his
package, something he is particu-
larly good at. But there is selling
and there is selling. And the one
thing Wilkinson hasn't yet learned
to appreciate is that in the final
analysis, thcrc are only 138 people
who have votes that count

When Todd Bearup walked
onto the basketball court, some-
thing seemed to separate him
from the rest of the players.

It was not his size. At 6—5 and
210 pounds, he is about average
build for college basketball.

It was not the fact that every-
one knew hc was Bret Bearup‘s
younger brother. The older Bear—
up hadn‘t played for UK in sever-
al years.

It was something that people
wouldn‘t expect to find in a
bruising basketball player: It was
an air of calmness, combined
with confidence and security.

Granted, that is a strange way
to describe a basketball player,


but in this case it fits.

Beamp, the newest member of
the UK basketball team, speaks
softly, and he uses the word
”love" in daily conversation.

People would not suspect that
he‘s spent his entire life banging
for rebounds or driving into the
lane for power layups.

Of course, the fact that he has
been preaching the Mormon gos-
pel on the other side of the globe
for two years probably has some-
thing to do with the seemingly
well-being of Beamp, a walk—on
small forward.

In those two years, Bearup, a
member of the Mormon Church,
preached the scriptures in Seoul,
Korea. He returned last May.

1 NEW ORLEANS -—— His team
comfortably situated at the site of
the Super Bowl, Denver coach
’Dan Reeves hoped to approxi-
nme as normal a work week as
- possible in preparation for Sun-
day’s matchup with the heavily
favored San Francisco 49ers.

The Broncos arrived in New
(hearts on Sunday afternoon, one
day earlier than their arrival at
Super Bowls in January l987 and
1988 ._. both blowout losses.

Reeves said the earlier travel
partly was to try to change his
team’s luck.

“Whenever you lose —— wheth-
er it's a regular-season game or
the Super Bowl -— you try to
learn from your loss,” he said

Sunday at the first of .1 half dozen
press conferences this week. “We
realized that the teams which had

“Reeves hopes for ‘normal’ week

won the previous Super Bowls
had always come in on Sunday.
We used to come in on Monday.
and that meant media day was
upon you right away.

“By getting in today, we'll be
able to work out tomorrow.
We'll lift and run like we nor-
mally do on a Monday. So it
will be like a normal schedule.”

The Broncos also installed
what Reeves called “the heart and
soul” of the game plan last week,
instead of waiting until this

”This week we’ll just perfect
it." he said.

The 49ers are 12-point favor-
ites. a fact with which Reeves
and his players have been bom-

“We‘re reminded every day by
people in the press that we don’t
have a chance,” he said. “But I
think we do.

“If you're any kind of competi-

tive person, you don’t like to read
or hear those things. It ruffles
you a little bit. But if we want to
change people's perceptions,
we‘ve got to do it on Sunday.
Talking about it won't change
anyone‘s mind."

The 49ers are 3-0 in Super
Bowls and gunning for a fourth
victory that would tie the record
of the Pittsburgh Steelers. The
Broncos are 0-3. including a loss
here in 1978, and another loss
would tie the Minnesota Vikings’
record for Super Bowl futility.

But Denver has beaten San
Francisco in the last four regular-
season meetings over the past
decade, For that reason, Reeves
said he believes the 49ers won‘t

"They have within their grasp a
chance for a piece of history,” he
said. “They’d be one of the few

Lady Kats fall to No. 3 UT

Tennessee stops
UK’S upset bid
with 76-60 win

Staff Writer

After last year's blowout loss in
Knoxville, Tenn., the UK Lady
Kats would have made an improve-
ment by simply staying in the
game with Tennessee last night.

The Lady Vols came into Memo-
rial Coliseum with a No. 3 nation-
al ranking and two All-America

But until midway through the
second half, UK gave the Lady
Vols all they could handle. Tennes-
see finally put down the Kats 76-
60 before a crowd of 7.100 — the
largest UK crowd to see a Lady
Kats game this year.

And Lady Kats coach Sharon
Fanning said that last night was
one of her biggest games since
coming to UK three years ago.

“It's the next step for this pro-
gram,” Fanning said. “They know
that they can play with anybody in
this country by playing with Ten-

“(UK) is a tremendously im-
proved group, playing harder,
smarter, together,” Tennessee coach
Pat Summitt said.

With the win, the Lady Vols re-
mained unbeaten in the Southeast-
ern Conference with a 2-0 mark.
Only 4-0 Auburn has a better
record. UT is now 14-3 and has
won its eighth game in a row.

In the early going. the Lady Vols

12-6 with 14:22 left in the half.

UK scored the next five points,

Tennessee then opened up a 13-

The Lady Vols held onto that

The Lady Kats cut the lead to

‘Nude ’90’
variety of

Arts Editor

In a society that views nudity in
either an exploitative or repressive
way, it is refreshing to see an ex-
hibit like “Nude '90” that explores
and celebrates the human form.

The exhibit at the Loudon House,
sponsored by the Lexington Art
League, is comprised of 69 works
by 49 regional artists. Not only are
a variety of aspects of the body
delved into but so are a number of
creative mediums.

Although there aren't many
sculptures in the exhibit, the ones
featured are both mentally provoca-
tive and sensual.

“Phoenix," a bronze sculpture by
UK graduate student Cambid J.
Choy, is fragmented and chipped,
but it still captures the human form
powerfully. The artist manages to
say a great deal about the human
body in a limited amount of space.

“Sitting Nude" by Wyman Rice,
however, is a more voluptuous
sculpture that details the sensuality
of the human body. The craftsman-
ship is impeccable as all the lines
flow together aesthetically.

A number of photographs in the
exhibit use a wide range of tech-
niques. David Kadlec's medium of
cibachrome involves exposure of
film. The colors that come through
are startling.

In an untitled work, a woman‘s
figure is outlined in red and a myri-
ad of other dark. rich colors seep
into the medium.

In “Swimmer" many photographs
have been exposed and placed to-
gether in a frenzy of action.

A photograph titled “For Robert
Mapplethorpe" pays tribute to the
late photographer whose work
spurred last summer‘s debate over
funding for the National Endow-
ment for the Humanities.

Mapplethorpe’s exhibit, which
was partially funded by the NEH,
was pulled from the Cochrane Gal-
lery in Washington, D.C., because
of the controversy surrounding
some of the exhibit's homoerotic
and sadomasochistic photos.

The paintings offer a variety of
perspectives about the nude fonn.

taposes a stationary woman with

"Nude '90" includes a variety of sculptures and paintings. “Phoe-

brush strokes that are in perpetual
motion. Although the parts are
constantly flowing, the overall ef-
fect is one of stillness. The colors
are lush and have a definite texture.

The exhibit also has a lighter
side. “Venus in Grease" is an etch-
ing of a nude woman from oven
door grease. The title makes a clev-

er play on words.

“Nude '90" is on display through
Feb. 24 at Loudon House, 209
Castlewood Drive. The exhibit is
open noon to 4 pm Tuesday-
Friday.‘ and l to 4 pm. Saturday

Associated Press

U840 drummer Jimmy Brown
and percussionist Norman Hassan
take life cheerfully.

U840 has been touring for 18
months, promoting its album
U840 and probably will tour until
September. So its new “Labour of
Love 11," the group's eighth album
and first on Virgin Records, was re-
corded on tour, in Hawaii, Italy,
France and England.

“Instead of having a two-week
break and enjoying ourselves,
somebody decided, ‘We know it's
Hawaii. Let‘s put them in this
little room with no windows,m
Hassan said. “But it was fun.”

“It was nice, recording,” Brown
said. “It kept a bit of a vibe going,
I think. We look on the bright side
of things. We're not ones to com-

“We sold a million and a half
records of ‘Labour of Love l.‘ We
can certainly make a good living
without being the biggest band in
the world. It would be nice to be
the biggest band in the world."

Said Hassan: “We‘re the biggest—
selling reggae band in the world —-—
which is nice."

U840 members write songs, but
both “Labour of Love“ albums are
made up of songs they‘ve known.
The new one includes reggae ver-
sions of American rhythm ’n' blues
hits, including the Temptations’
1964 “The Way You Do the Things
You Do.”

“They’re all real famous to us,
from when we were 11 and 12 and
the first time we ever danced with a
girl. That's why they‘re all love
songs,” Hassan said.

The first single is “Here 1 Am," a
1973 Al Green release. A Neil Dia-
mond song from 1968. “Red Red

Wine," took off after it was played
on a Phoenix radio station and be-
came UB40's biggest hit in Ameri-
ca in 1988 —— five years after the
album it was on, “Labour of Love
1," came out.

Brown said that when he first got
hooked on reggae, he thought it
would sweep popular music.

“I imagined other people needed
to be exposed to it and they would
like it as well. I now think it must
be a minority interest music, like
Jazz." Hassan said he thinks that
reggae would have taken over pop
music if Bob \itirley had lived

“1 don't want to be disrespectful
to Ziggy Marley,“ Brown S'dld.
“What he does 1 think is good, but
it seems to be old-fashioned. His
style of backing tracks have a mid-
‘70s feel to them, to me. 1 love the
ragamuffin style of reggae. We‘re
trying to tuse different influences.

The University of Louisville was the only state university ‘

Council on Higher Education.

L’K‘s enrollment only increased slightly more than its 1978

level of black students.

Increasing minority enrollment was a problem many higher
education officials faced in the 1980s. Schools have offered
more scholarships, created special programs geared at

standard of living is by getting minority students to attend


But in order to accomplish that. a major overhaul of the
nation‘s welfare system is in order.

But it is not too much to expect those who call themselves
our nation ‘s leaders to begin searching for some answers. One
person who seems especially eager to help but has done little in

Bush often said during his presidential campaign that he
