Race relations defined the 1995—96 school year, but
until this spring no issue stirred as many emotions on
campus as sexuality — specifically homosexuality.

University Senate ChairJan Schach and former Con-
ANALYSIS temporary Affairs Chair Craig Dylan Wyatt

on April 9 announced the postponement of
the April 16 UK Speaks Out session on sexuality because
“key campus organization and other individual faculty
members” chose not to serve on the panel, according to a
press release.

During the next two weeks finger pointing, name call—
ing and other sophomoric gesters via the Kernel editorial
page and press releases ensued.

But the real issue may be is UK ready to talk about

Discussing sexuality, especially homosexuality “is a
real problem” at UK, Schach said esterday in an inter-
view. “Homosexuality has been a taboo subject.”

Schach and \Vyatt had worked all year assembling
panels on race, religion and censorship with little prob-
ems. For the sexuality discussion Schach asked several
faculty members, including philosophy professors Joan
Callahan and Susan Bordo and psychology professor
Greg Smith to serve on the panel.

Callahan declined to serve. Bordo accepted at first, but
then declined.

Wyatt asked journalism sophomore and Kentucky
Kernel columnist Ben Rich and members of UK Lamb-
da, the gay, lesbian organization, to serve on the panel.
Initially, they both accepted.

But a week before the event was to occur, members of
UK Lambda decided not to participate in the Speak Out
session because of Rich and his views on homosexuality.

“I personally would not have (served with Rich on the
panel)," said former UK Lambda president Matt Solberg.
“I had problems with the panel that was set up."

Wyatt said he asked Rich because of his outspoken
views on homosexuality. He said he interpreted Rich’s
columns as a writing persona. .

“I saw his goal as getting people fired up," Wyatt said.

Schach anticipated Rich’s impact on the panel and met
once with Rich and separately with Wyatt to discuss the
situation. She said panelists were concerned with the
composition ofthe sexuality panelwhen compared with
the makeup of previous panels.

Despite such concerns, Wyatt said he had no intention
of removing Rich from the panel.

“I wasn’t oing to go back and uninvite him“ Wyatt
said. “I was a ways calm with the decision.”

UK Lambda's decision not to serve on the anel
because of the inclusion of Rich led some “key members”
of the panel to decide not to serve.

According to the press release, “Without such repre-
sentation. constructive discussion of the subject of sexual-
ity would not be possible.”

“Never once was there finger-pointing” by organizers
of UK Speaks Out, Schach said.

Wyatt was calm, but Bordo who initially accepted to
serve on the panel backed out.

“I don’t think these things should operate like talk
shows,” Bordo said. “I wasn’t imagining that I would be
partici ating in a polarizing debate when I acce ted.”

Cal ahan declined to serve as well, citing Ric ’5 “gay-

Board to 901 budgets

Budgets for all three sectors of the univeristy
for the next year will come before the Board of
TrusteesJune 10.

Elisabeth Zinser, chancellor for the Lexington
Campus, said most of the sector’s budget is
unchanged from the levels needed to compensate
for the $640,000 tuition shortfall and the
$2,382,394 recurring and nonrecurring fund

tension that thew/mg editor vowed revenge. From those feelings ofscorn, the Golden For/cs were horn. Asa testament to thatyoung

Weekend Spom Editor

LOUISVILLE — There’s a
beautiful swirl of dirt as Kentucky
Derby hopeful Free House moves
through the barns toward his stall
after an 8 am. workout on the
main track. The early mornin
sunlight illuminates the dead samF,
which contrasts with Free House’s
light gray coat.

Indeed, nowhere in this sports
Pangea is there such beautiful
contrast — the richest of owners
and the most modest of exercise
riders. Horses from big-name
tracks and their counterparts from
Anonymity Downs. Aged veteran
trainers and the youngsters just
happy to be here.

Among the legion of first—time
Derby personnel stands Gary
Capuano, trainer of second-
favorite Captain Bodgit. He lum-
bers reluctantly toward the media
who stand near his barn waiting to
digest his insight into the muddled
race picture. It’s a reluctancy born
not out of spite, but rather of the
inexperience of someone being
subjected to the Derby hubbub for
the first time.

“This isn’t a two-horse race,”
first-time Derby trainer Capuano
says of assertions that Pulpit and
his Captain Bodgit are the class of
this year’s field.

“First, second, or even third
wouldn’t even be a bad way to go.”

Toward the far end of the back-
side in Barn 42 stands a thin man
in a black Louisville Slugger

Next to him is Shammy Davis,
one of the trainer’s two Derby
contenders, who is getting his
morning bath. As Nick Zito chats
with reporters, Shammy peers in
with seemingly human inquisition.

He’s talking about a subject
painfully familiar to sports fans.
Throughout horse racing, many
owners spend exorbitant amounts
of money on horses and aren’t
prepared to let them mature prop-

Instead, they want any colt or
filly even close to Derby caliber in
the gate the first Saturday in May.

“They all want to race them as
two-year-olds,” Nick Zito says
with a New York accent that
makes his close association with
UK head coach Rick Pitino seem
no serendipitous affair.

“I tell (the horse owners), you
have to be patient," he said. “A lot
of (the horses) just aren't ready to

Across the way in Barn 3}, vet-
eran trainer Bob Baffert barks
instructions to his rider, who is
about to gallop Silver Charm a
mile and a half. Baffert, a graduate
of the University of Arizona who
balanced basketball glory with a
painful second—place loss in last
year’s Derby with Cavonnier,
exhibits a different attitude.

“It’s good for them to see a big-
time star like you, Bob,” a beat
reporter says to Baffert as she
escorts a tour group through the
barn area.

“Oh,” Baffert relents. “I’m not
that big.”

Far away from the backside and
its overt confidence, nervousness
runs rampant. In the announcer‘s
box, atop the grandstand near the
spires, stands a 28-year-old with
the most famous voice in
Keeneland Race Course history.
Kurt Becker is preparing to call
the first race at his new home ——
only one week prior to the biggest
call of his life.

“Yeah, I’ve

been getting

uptight about it," Becker says of
the pressure associated with the
looming Derby call. “A fella was;
telling me the other day —— he said
that one year from now, there will:
be a whole new crop (of three-I
year—old horses) and it’ll be a‘
whole new race. ' ‘

“That puts it in perspective.” 1 ;

So a youn track announcer
takes over for e weathered vetétQ
an, Mike Battaglia, who had called
races in Louisville since 1977.

Batta lia, whose subtle schtick
include a brilliant “they’re into
the stretch" as the horses headed
for home, was a mainstay at a track-
that rewards and cherishes main-

“There was pressure at
Keeneland, but this is harder,"
Becker says. “There’s so much his-
tory here. People dream about
working here. It’s amazing.”

It’s still a few minutes before
noon and the first day of Churchill
Downs' spring meet is an hour
away. But a majority of the track's
life has already been lived.

It’s a sport that's born in the
morning, then won or lost in the

Such beautiful contrast.

The men’s team lacks two things that are
essential for the duo of meets at the end of the

“Somebody has to emerge as the leader and
that really hasn't happened yet," said UK assis-
tant coach Edrick Floreal. “I think this is going
to be the weekend where the men as a team
will really get it going.”

What they need, Floreal said, is some
momentum heading into the championships.

“\Ve don't really have much momentum
going right now," Floreal said. “Everybody


isn’t really competing well right now and
everybody's kind of looking around for people
to compete well.”

Floreal said it is “bound to happen," and he
can see it coming.

“I think it's going to happen again, and I can
see it going on slowly but surely," he said.
“Guys are beginning to make a move to step up
their game."

Fifth-year senior DeMarcus Lindsey agreed
with Floreal's analysis and said the SECs is the
time for the men's team to gel.

“One of these meets we need to get it
together," Lindsey said. “Hopefully that's
going to be the meet.”

The SEC championships, May 15—18, is one
of, if not, the most competitive outdoor con-
ference track and field meets in the country.

Lindsey, who redshirted last season because
ofinjury and did not compete in the outdoors,
is taking a different approach the to 1997 SEC

“It's kind of different because I’m not where

I want to be, and I know you have to take it one

Cats' recruits to add speed, strength

By Price Atkinson

If rebuilding next year is the case, then the UK
women’s track and field team will have some new

building blocks to get the job done.

And a strong group of newcomers they are.

So far, six female track and field athletes have
signed with UK for next season. Five are state or
national high school champions in their events and
one is the Canadian junior champion.

“All of them coming in will probably be able to
hel us now,” said UK assistant coach Edrick Floreal.

“T at’s the exciting thin

Leading the way will fie No. l triple-jumper in the
nation and Maryland state champion, Valerie
Williams. She won the women’s high school triple
jump competition last weekend at the Penn Relays.

Williams will fill a hole UK has had in the triple

jump event.

The third-best triple jump in the SEC this year is
42 feet, 7 inches, which ties her personal best. The
top three jumpers this season are seniors, which

opens a door to the top.

“She will come in probably finding herself the
leading jumper in the SEC as a freshman and proba-
bly in the long jump as well," Floreal said.

British Columbia, is the Canadian junior champion

WOOIIII Ill Pitino

UK head coach Rick Pitino said
Thursday he would end all specu-
lation about his job status by
either jumping to the NBA or
reaching a new deal with the
Wildcats, probably sometime next

“IfI am back next year, and I
intend to be, it’s going to be with a
long-term contract,” said Pitino,
speaking in an on-the-course
interview during a pro-am golf

Pitino denied published reports
quoting unnamed sources as say—
ing there was a 95 percent chance
he would be the new coach of the
Boston Celtics, where M.L. Carr
resigned Wednesday after two

haven’t said that,” Pitino said.

“I‘ve never really looked at an
offer. I don’t know what all this is

Pitino has three years remain-
ing on his contract at UK. At a
news conference later Thursday,
he said he might eschew an imme-
diate extension in favor of signing
a longer deal once his current
agreement expires with the Uni-

Regardless, Pitino said he did
not anticipate any difficulty in
coming to terms with UK.

Pitino said one “casual conver-
sation” with Celtics’ special assis-
tant Larry Bird had unexpectedly
mushroomed into stories claiming
he was on the way out at UK,
which lost to Arizona in the
NCAA final this year.

What has become a yearly
string of stories mentioning him as
a candidate for NBA jobs is unfair

to UK, its players and its fans,
Pitino said.

“I’ve got to do one thing or the
other, and it’s oing to be done
next week,” saitFPitino, who first
plans to attend Saturday’s 123rd
running of the Kentucky Derby.

“I’ve got to stop this once and
for all.”
