UK program offers second chance at education

Miles, an employee of UK’s Ser—
vices department, is one of the
many successful participants of Op-
eration Educate at UK (formerly
Operation Read at UK), which is de-
signed to help improve UK’s em-
ployees’ basic literacy skills.

Miles is taking the course to im-
prove all his skills. “Maybe some
day I’ll swap my bucket for a desk
job,” he said with a grin.

It‘s a program that has left many

“The program has two compo-
nents,” said Connie Johnson, Oper-

In Kentucky a GED (General Edu-
cation Development) certificate is
the equivalent of a high school di-
ploma. In a recent survey it was dis-
covered that approximately 50 per-
cent of all Kentuckians over 25 did
not have a high school diploma or a
GED. The same survey showed that
400,000 adult Kentuckians had poor
basic literacy skills.

“The program really unfolded
from a grievance. actually," said
Marsha P. Collins, manager of Hu-
man Resource Development, which
started the program back in 1986.
“There was an employee who was
turned down for a promotion be-
cause of poor reading skills. From
there we thought there was a need.“

Once Collins and UK Human Re-
source Services Director Walter Ski-
ba estimated 200-250 UK employ-
ees could benefit from basic literacy
training, informal surveys of super—
visors of the Physical Plant Divi-

however, went to the Fayette Coun-

and received literacy training.

“They sort of adopted us," Collins
said. “They took us under their wing
and showed us how to run a pro.

She said tough choices had to be
made about the program before an
official proposal was written up and

The two key choices, however,
centered on whether the tutoring
would occur on the job and where
the tutors would come from. The
answer to the second question came


“We thought, of all the places
that should believe in literacy, this
should be it,” Collins said. “We de-
cided to use volunteer tutors from

strength of the program was “The
University's commitment to the
program and its desire to improve
the basic skills of its employees."

Apprehension and embarrassment
among employees receiving the lit-
eracy training quickly was dispersed.
Collins said.

“At first you'd see them sneaking
around here (Memorial Hall, where
some tutoring sessions take place).
But after a while they weren‘t cm—
barrassed at all. You could see the
pride they had in what they were do—

some growing pains. “We had em~

In March of this year, the ABE/
GED component became the second
leg of Operation Educate at UK.
This part of the program focussed
on helping people get their GED‘s.
The thiny spots in the two classes
quickly filled up, and a burgeoning
waiting list ensued. To alleviate the
problem, two more GED classes
have been added for the fall.

The basic literacy section also is
experiencing a surge of growth.
“We currently have 20 employees in
the basic literacy section who are
waiting for tutors,” Johnson said.
“We always have a need for tutors
in our program."

She said her biggest surprise is
“The motivation that the employees
bring to their tutoring sessions and
their want to improve employment

money. they should get the money
back because employees will do a

will be able to read instructions bet-

also save money because they will
be able to promote from within.“

He added: “I can‘t think of any
thing a university could do that‘s
better. It's a win-win situation."

“I think it‘s great." Miles said.

UK to unveil new vending machines next week


More than 400 responses suppon—
ing UK’s new vending machines
came into the food services office
from faculty and staff, and managers
are hoping for the same response
from students.

By adding the new Vend-Plus
cards, changing over to Pepsi Cola
from Coca Cola and adding health
foods, food services’ efforts have re-
ceived good reviews so far, said
Roger Sidney, vending manager of

food services.

“Responses have been very posi-
tive overall,” Sidney said.

UK plans to install the new vend-
ing machines, which will allow us-
ers to access an account in order to
make purchases Aug. 1-14.

“It’s a two week window (between
the dates),” Sidney said. “We should
be totally installed by the 14th.”

The machines and Vend-Plus cards
will operate 24 hours a day, as long
as the user has money in the ac-

In order to access the machines

through a Vend-Plus card, the user
either can purchase one out of the
vending machine or use a meal card.
If a card is purchased from a ma-
chine, the user should go to an Au-
tomatic Debit Machine (ADM) and
deposit dollar bills, which will be
credited to an account.

A maximum of $20 per day can
be deposited, and the money will re—
main in the account until it is used
“The account is good forever,”
Sidney said. “There is a $5 charge

UK chemist exploring fuel alternatives

Contributing Writer

America must adopt an alternative
method to making gasoline from
crude oil because in 1990 crude oil
will cost $100 per barrel, about
$2.50 a gallon.

That was a prediction made by
experts during the oil crisis of the
late 1970s, said UK chemist Bur~
tron Davis. A prediction the UK
chemist said is obviously wrong.

But finding an alternative method
for making gasoline ~ an idea that‘s
been tossed around since the 1940s
-» has always intrigued scientists.

Davis, who works at UK‘s Cen-
ter for Applied Energy Research, is

working on just such a project. He‘s
trying to develop a process that
would convert methanol to gasoline.
“I was working at Mobil where the
catalyst, ZSM-S, was accidentally
discovered, which works instrumen-
tally in the conversion process," Da-
viS said.

Davis said the process goes like
this: natural gas (methane) is first
converted into a ”synthesis gas."
which basically is carbon monoxide
and hydrogen.

This gas is then converted into
liquid methanol. The catalyst, 25M-
5. is then used to set up a complex
series of chemical reactions, result-
ing in gasoline, he said.

Coal also can be used as a source

material instead of natural gas. The
only difference is it must first un—
dergo a slightly more complex gasi-
fication process, Davis said.

“The U.S. is buying oil around
$20 per barrel currently." Davis
said. “During the oil crisis we were
spending $42 per barrel. “If the
price ever reaches $35 per barrel,
then synfuels will get the go ahead
from the government and industry
to be into use," he said.

The UK Center for Energy Re-
search Laboratory has been in the
lead for synfuels research at the state
level. It also collaborates with a
plant in Wilmington, Ala. which
is the only synfuel plant that pro-
duces transportation fuel.

choose to take it out. But we do
want as many people as possible to
set up accounts."

Also, you can go to Student Bill-
ings and set up a VendoPlus ac-
count. Go to the office in the Stu-
dent Center room 257 and deposit a
minimum of $20, then go to room
239 and have a card made up.

In order to transfer money into
your account, go to an ADM ma-
chine the next business day and de-
posit money.

Food services set up the daily
maximum to protect card users if

cards are lost or stolen.

“If you lose your card, you lose
all the money (you put in that
day),” Sidney said.

However, card—holders can call
the vending office and have their ac-
count closed out in order to protect
any other money left

“If you don't close your account,
someone could access it,” he said.

The new machines will offer a va-
riety of brand-name foods and health
foods, including low-calorie, low-
cholestorol, and low-salt foods, as
well as fruit and juices.

Acquaintanee rape
brochures funded
by interim senate

Contributing Writer

The UK Student Government As-
sociation interim senate unanimous-
ly passed a bill Tuesday night to al-
locate money for the distribution of
arochures about the problems of
aquaintance tape.

The interim senate approved the
illocation for $330.95 for the bro-
:hures, which will be given out dur-
ng freshman orientation at UK in
\ugust. Brochures on the subject
ire currently available at the Student
lealdi Service.

“The brochure will let students
know what constitutes rape, what to
do in case you’re raped, and where to
go to get help," said SGA President
Sean Lohman yesterday.

The bill, which was introduced by
Lohman, was to have been discussed
at a July 11 senate meeting but due
to lack of quorum no meeting was

“For the past couple of years (ac-

quaintance rape) hasn’t been ad-
dressed. People are raped on this
campus and there are many who are
afraid to report that they’ve been
raped,” he said.

“They need to know what consti—
tutes date rape and how to get help.
We can’t be too ignorant of it.”

Lohman said response to the bill
has been “very positive.”

“We've been attacking the alcohol
issue but we need to move on to
something that 1 think is a very
pressing issue on many campuses,
including ours.”

In other senate action. Senator
Rob Lohman presented a bill asking
for $1,000 to be given for a Fall se-
mester 1989 documentary film festi-
val. “There would be seven shows,
one every two weeks,” Lohman
said. "We are only asking to be
funded by SGA because this is the
first one.”

The interim senate will hold its
next meeting Aug. 1 at 6:30 pm.

Lexington sees renewed interest in black heritage


Many African-Americans at UK
have recently become aware of and
started to celebrate their African her-
itage by wearing various African ac-
cessories and apparel.

“It is for a genuine political and
cultural base for people to express
themselves,” said Chester Grundy,
Director of the office of Minority
Student Affairs.

Beneath all the attention being
paid to African fashion lies more
complex issues. According to
Grundy, the clothing and apparel is
only a means to assert a “new atti-
tude, awareness and awakening of
political consciousness.”

Black Americans are becoming
more alert to their cultural identity.

“African-American people are
more and more seeking out symbols
of who we are." said Msiba Ann
Grundy, a teacher and counselor at
the Central Kentucky Re-Ed

One of the more popular items
being worn is a necklace Africans
call a nubie. It‘s also called the rasta
chain by Rastafarians.

(Rastafarians are members of a la-
maican religion whose god is Haile
Selassie and who believe in freedom
for blacks and a return to Africa or
the Motherland).

The chains may also be referred to
as freedom pendants or awareness

Nubie is derived from a former
country, Nubia, which was once an
area of Sudan, Egypt and Ethiopia.

According to Frank Walker, pro-
gram coordinator for the Martin Lu-
ther King Cultural Center at UK,
the pendants are metal and/or leather
and are in the colors red, black,
green and gold. each representing

cenain ideas.

Black, red and green are “libera-
tion” colors, which stand for the
colors of the African national flag.
Red represents the blood lost by all
African people, and green means the
land. Gold stands for Africa‘s miner-
al wealth, but also has something to
do with sunshine.

Red, green, and gold are colors
linked more to Jamaica and the Ras-
tafan'ans who started making and
selling them more than four years
ago. It was at this time that they
were being worn in places like New
York, Nashville, Tenn., and Atlan-

In the middle of the nubie is an
African symbol. One of these sym-
bols is the continent of Africa
which is synonymous with the
Motherland. Another common im-
age is Nefertiti, who was a 14th
century queen of Egypt. The Lion of
Judah, also an African emblem, was
one of the 12 tribes of Israel.

Also pertaining to Judaism, the
Star of David is an original African
symbol, and signifies the second
King of Israel and Judah.

Nubies and other items such as
African-made jewelry, scarfs, hats,
kente cloth, T-shirts, and pins in the
shape of the continent of Africa
have been popping up at a few retail
stores across the country.

According to Mrs. Grundy, most
of the clothing and accessories are
made in Africa. but there have been
various fake products being sold to
unsuspecting customers in which
the label may read ‘made in Japan.”

Kente cloth, from West Africa, is
made of intricately woven print, and
is made into skirts or other apparel.
The cloth comes in thousands of
patterns representing family histo-
ries and are “very expensive" in
terms of human hours, Mrs. Grundy

v .

This African-made juju bag, or neck wallet. was gained renewed popularity recently across the
originally a medicine bag. Items like this have country.


Mrs. Grundy said that many Afri-
can-American women are turning to
the African fabric, but wear it in a
cut that is in a more modern fash-

Hats or kufis, and scarfs made of
kente cloth are often color-
coordinated but are not as available.

T-shirts explaining the various
African colors and symbols promot-
ing black pride are popular too.

This is not the first time that At-
rican clothing has influenced fash-
ion. Even back in the 19605 trade
beads were worn. But according to
those who wear the paraphernalia
now, the recent popularity is not a
fad but an awakening to their cultu—
ral heritage.

“I hope that it is clear that people
know that this is not just a fad,"

Lee continues streak
with powerful film

Executive Editor

By tackling major issues like ra-
cism, which the majority of Holly-
wood chooses to ignore, Spike Lee
continues to build his reputation as
a maker of imponant films.

His latest joint, “Do The Right
Thing,” is set in the Bedford-
Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brook-
lyn and occurs in one swelterting,
simmering, and eventually scorch—
ing 24 hours.

Lee, who serves as writer, actor,
director, and producer as he did in
his first two feature films, treats the
subject matter seriously and both
sides fairly.

He has a feel for this neighbor—
hood, which goes back to his thesis
film for graduate school “Joe’s Bed-
Stuy Barbershop: We Cut Heads.”
Lee didn‘t make it look like Holly-
wood visits Brooklyn.

In the movie Lee plays Mookie, a
pizza delivery person for Sal’s Fa~
mous Pizzeria. Sal (Danny Aiello)
is a wonderful and by far the most
versatile character of the cast.

The conflict begins when Buggin
Out (Giancarlo Esposito) complains
that there are only Italians on Sal‘s
Wall of Fame. Buggin Out‘s charac-
ter is extreme and leaves no room
for compromise with Sal.

Buggin Out joins forces with Ra-
dio Raheem (Bill Nunn) to take the





confrontation a few degrees higher.
The heat is stressed over and over as
Lee, illustrating the racial climate,
matches a scorching summer day.

But unlike the weather, the racial
tensions are always on the edge of
bursting into flames.

There are a number of striking
camera angles at interesting mo-
ments in the movie which actually
give a new perspective.

The soundtrack is one of the most
diverse I’ve ever heard. The score
was composed by Bill Lee, the film-
makerfis father, who put together the
score for both “She’s Gotta Have It"
and “School Daze.”

The ensemble appeal of the cast is
surprising giving the somewhat seg-
mented nature of the film.

The film deals well with issues of
violence, frustration, and misplaced
anger without providing answers.
Doing the right thing is both differ-
ent and difficult for every character.
That‘s one reason why it‘s so good.

“Do The Right Thing.” rated PG-
13, is currently showing at Cross-
roads Cinemas.

LeMond’s ride to the top was truly spectacular

It seems there aren’t many mo-
ments of pure drama left in spans
these days. The Super Bowl is usu-
ally a blowout, the baseball
playoffs in recent history have
seemed a little mundane, and the
NBA playoffs border on tedium.

One of those rare moments of dra-
ma at the very pinnacle of a sport
occurred this past weekend.

Greg LeMond. an American cy-

he returned this year he had missed
the last two Tours.

People were skeptical as to
whether LeMond could regain his
level of greatness. Most figured he
would be near the leaders in this
race, but no one expected him to
contend for the title.

Early in the race LeMond trailed
