Alcohol-related topics
ocus of awareness week


Assistant Arts Editor

In a campuswide effort to boost
alcohol awareness, UK’s Office of
the Dean of Students has organized
a week of events for students to
learn about alcohol-related issues.

This week UK will observe Na-
tional Collegiate Alcohol Aware-
ness Week, along with Red Ribbon
Week, a nation . 4 ,
al drug aware- i m.
ness campaign
focusing on per-
ment to drug-
free lifestyles.

UK has held events supporting
the national program for the past
three years. This year‘s motto, “Eve-
ry Step Makes A Difference," was
represented in yesterday‘s five—mile
walkathon, the first event of the

Every year 26.000 people die in
drunken driving accidents, said Che-
ryl Tuttle. UK’s substance abuse
prevention coordinator. Tuttle and
Laurel Raimondo set the walkathon
at five miles, the equivalent to
26,000 steps m one step for each
life lost in alcohol-related incidents.

Tuttle emphasized that alcohol-
related crashes are not accidents.

“An accident is something you
have no control over." Tuttlc said.
“People do have control over drink-
ing and driving crashes."

The walkathon began at Donovan
Hall and ended with an ice cream

ternity house. with free T»shirts giv-

Lecturer of the Year for the Nation-
al Collegiate Alcohol Awareness

CINCINNATI —— Baseball fans

A charter flight carrying the Reds

for security reasons, but the Cincin-

Schott, an auto dealer who bought

December 1984, said Saturday night
in the Reds’ locker room.

“it‘s really for the fans, who are
the greatest.“

Although the Reds completed the
achievement 2,000 miles away, their
fans back home were anything but
subdued in their outpouring ofjoy.

“Oakland brought brooms when
they came here, and look who got

hugs and high«fives, and tipped over

in downtown streets Saturday night.
Police estimated the crowd at about
10,000 people.

Helmeted police officers were de-
ployed in the downtown area to

keep order. Police reported only one
arrest for disorderly conduct.

Starved for a World Series cham-
pionship since the Reds victory in
1976, fans threw their caps in the
air, waved brooms and cried
“Sweep! Sweep! Sweep!" anti
“Nasty! Nasty! Nasty!"

The “Nasty Boys,” the self-
described trio of Reds relievers
Randy Myers, Rob Dibble and

.Norm Charlton. were key in both

the National League playoffs and
the World Series.

Police were on alert because of

scattered violence in October 1076
when fans celebrated the Reds‘ sec-
ond consecutive World Series
championship. a four-game sweep
over the New York Yankees.

With the arrival of colder
temperatures, many athletes leave
the playing fields and practice
courts until next season.

The Lady Kat tennis team,
however, does not slow its pace for
the coldest of days.

Dinneen. “Our girls work as hard

This continuous schedule and a

“I try to keep it light because 'he
girls do this every day for nine
months.” Dinneen said.

The players also have to keep
themselves enthused and tuned into
their games.

“It’s hard. You’ve got to motivate
yourself everyday," said sophomore
Susan Klingenberg. “During the
season, each individual tournament
is motivational, but I plan on turn-
ing pro, so that’s also in my mind
— my long range goal."

Because of its demanding sched—
ule. the team enjoys playing match-
es at home in front of fans. Tennis
matches do not draw crowds
comparable to many college sports,
but the players want to have larger
crowds and support.

“We have to provide a product
for people to come watch," Dinneen
said. "And over the past five years,
we’ve had one of the best teams at
the University in terms of skill and
national ranking."

“Especially in college tennis.
crowd support is great."
Klingenberg said.

“It helps you get pumped up. you
