Missing girl found alive 8 months later

‘Miracles do exist’: Police find Elizabeth Smart with family handyman after being abducted from home

Smart. the 15-year-old girl who van-

walking down a suburban street
with a drifter who had briefly
worked at the family‘s home. The
man was taken into custody. and the

“Miracles do exist." said Tom
Smart. the girl's uncle.

Elizabeth was returned home

house. Relatives said Elizabeth was
in good condition and had talked
with police about her ordeal.

“All of the children out there de-

the way Elizabeth has come back to

into sobs during a celebration.

Students get ‘dialogues' going about race

Communication: Ethnic Dialogue group meets weekly

to bring students of different backgrounds together

By Christie Hegarty


Tara Hornbeck always
tried to be open when it came
to people of other races. But
once she started going to a
weekly meeting where she
spoke to people different
from her. she's found out she
has more to learn.

“I thought I was open
minded. but I realized I was-
n‘t." said Hornbeck. an ISC
freshman who is white.

Hornbeck is a member
of an ethnic dialogue group
that has met every Tuesday
evening for the past five
weeks. During the sessions.
14 students of a variety of
races and ethnicities ask
each other about what it's
like to be from a different

During one meeting. Pa
tricia Hayden. a leader of
the group and a manager of

internal services at Lex-
mark. asked the group‘s
black members when they
first realized that they were
at a disadvantage because of
their race.

“I first realized about my
disadvantage in elementary
school." said Kamesha Cato.
an undeclared freshman. “I
watched as the kids chose
people to be on their teams
for games during recess. All
the black kids were chosen
last. I thought about this and
realized we were being dis-
criminated against."

Other members of the
group said they had never
felt the same as Cato and
had never noticed experi-
encing discrimination.

American members of
the group asked Nathan Li
Liang. a computer science.
junior from China. about
differences between Ameri-
can and Chinese culture.

particularly the holidays.

“I like studying in
America because you get a
lot more holidays than we
do back home. We don‘t get
spring break either. and I‘m
really looking forward to
that.“ Liang said.

All of the students par-
ticipating in the ethnic dia-
logue are enrolled in Anthro
pology 160. Cultural Diversi-
ty in the Modern World. Stu-
dents get extra credit for at-
tending the session.

Lisa Cliggett. an associ-
ate professor of anthropolo-
gy. said that recognizing di-
versity is crucial.

“Studying about people
different from yourself is
extremely important. no
matter what discipline you
come from — physics. busi-
ness or. pharmacology ~ be-
cause a contemporary world
is a world of diversity.“ she

The group is also led by
David Stockham. former
dean of students.

Stockham founded the

group with UK graduate
John Lindsay four years ago.
Stockham said he and Lind-
say felt a need for communi-
cation between people of dif-
ferent races and ethnicities.
They wanted to create a safe
environment for people to get
together. discuss issues and
ask questions that they
wouldn‘t normally feel at
ease to ask. he said.

The group asks one an-
other “ouch” questions
questions about their race
and ethnicity that most peo-
ple wouldn't normally feel
comfortable asking. But
group members understand
that they are only being
asked these questions to
help educate other group
members and open them to
other views.

One student said she en-
joys the frankness of the
group's conversations.

“It's an opportunity to
come and talk about things
you wouldn't feel comfort

a sewage plant in Winchester but caused no
injuries. authorities said Wednesday. Roy
Burgher. director of the city's sewage opera-

am. EST Wednesday and found debris from
the 30- by 40-foot building, which serves as a
pretreatment facility for sewage coming
into the plant. Orange cones had been
placed where debris from the building had
landed tip to 200 feet away. Maleva Chamber
lain. a spokeswoman for the state Division
of Water, said the influx of sewage had not
caused any flooding. She said it's too early
to gauge an environmental impact. but typi-
cally when raw sewage enters a stream it
stymies wildlife by reducing oxygen levels.
"That's not real good for life," she said. Lo-
gan Weiler, an official with the state Divi-

water treatment plants in Paris and Cynthi-
ana that wastewater was temporarily being
pumped into Strodes Creek. Winchester
Mayor Dodd Dixon said the explosion could
have been caused by a build up of methane,
which occurs naturally in the decomposi-

want to speculate on what could have
caused the explosion.

School on alert after weapons found

RICHMOND — Signs of heightened vigi-
lance are noticeable at Clark-Moores Middle
School in Richmond, where a stash of
weapons was uncovered, and a possible plot
to take the principal hostage was foiled. A po-
lice officer is assigned full-time to the school.
Metal-detecting wands now are swiped over
students' bags. Student lockers were
searched to reassure parents that the school
was weaponsfree. “It's made us more aware,
more alert," said Lawrence Bailey, principal
of the school, which has an enrollment 670
students in grades six through eight. The ex-
tra security stems from the arrests of four
13-year-old students last Friday after the
weapons —— three knives, an unloaded .38-cal-
iber pistol and a BB gun — were found
stashed in a book bag in a classroom.The stu-
dents were charged with unlawful possession
of a weapon on school property The students
~ two boys and two girls — were suspended
pending a school board hearing to determine
possible punishment by the district. Options
include expulsion or assignment to the alter-
native school program.

State of emergency
declared in Serbia


BELGRADE. Serbia-l\lontenegro Snipers ltirkiiig
near government headquarters on Wednesday ambushed
and assassinated Serbia's prime minister. a pro-Western
leader who helped topple Slobodan Milosevic and had de-
clared war on organized crime.

The slaying of Zoran Djindjic at midday in downtown
Belgrade prompted the government to impose a nation-
wide state of emergency amid fears the volatile Balkan
country could plunge into violence in a power struggle for
his successor.

Djindjic. 50. died in a hospital after being shot in the
abdomen and back. said Nebojsa (‘ovic a deputy prime
minister. One of Djindjic's bodyguards was wounded. po»
lice sources said.

Two suspects were arrested. witnesses said. But po-
lice, unsure they were the gunmen. launched a nationwide
search. setting tip roadblocks in Belgrade and halting bus.
rail and plane traffic from the capital. Witnesses said the
suspects fled in a red car.

The US. Embassy urged Americans in Serbia to exeit
cise caution after the assassination. which occurred three
blocks from the embassy.

Djindjic had many enemies because of his pro-re-
formist and Western stands.

He was despised by some for arranging the extradi—
tion of Milosevic to the UN. war crimes tribunal in The
Hague. Netherlands. in 2001. and for urging more arrests
of war crimes suspects.

He also was targeted by Serbian crime bosses and war—
lords who were allied with the former Yugoslav president.

When Milosevic was toppled in October 2000. Djind-
jic admitted luring key mob figures into changing sides.
But later. he turned against them. declaring an open war
on the rampant smuggling of contraband goods and

Drive—by shootings. explosions and mafia-style
shootouts have been commonplace in Serbia. which is
still recovering from Milosevic‘s ruinous 13-year rule.

Djindjic often was criticized by opponents for seeking
too much power and for “mercilessly“ taking on his politi-
cal rivals.

He recently promised to try to arrest Ratko Mladic. a
former Bosnian Serb military commander who is wanted
by the UN. tribunal. Mladic is thought to be hiding in

The assassination heralds turbulent days for Serbia.
A bitter power struggle for Djindjic’s successor could af-
fect cooperation with the West. particularly over arresting
and handing over indicted war crimes suspects.

Djindjic appeared to have been targeted last month.
when a truck suddenly cut into the lane in which his mo~
torcade was heading to Belgrade‘s airport. The motorcade
narrowly avoided a collision.

After Wednesday's shooting. the Cabinet held an
emergency session and declared three days of mourning.

President Bush expressed condolences Wednesday.

Djindjic “will be remembered for his role in bringing
democracy to Serbia and for bringing Slobodan Milose-
vic to justice." White House spokesman Ari Fleischer

A German-educated technocrat. Djindjic was known
to supporters as “The Manager" for his organizational
skills and as “Little Slobo“ to his detractors for his au-
thoritarian tendencies.

Djindjic‘s trade of Milosevic for $1.2 billion in inter-
national economic aid appeared to have won respect from
people desperate to improve a standard of living that
ranks among the lowest in Europe.

Born in 1952 into the family of a Yugoslav army offi-
cer in the town of Bosanski Samac near the Bosnian bor-
der. Djindjic was raised and educated in Belgrade. He mar-
ried and had a son and daughter.

Jovan Dimitrijevic, a retiree in his 703, wept as he laid
a single red rose at the site of the assassination.

“This is the work of criminal minds. those who want
to pull us back into Milosevic's darkness," he said.

Organization helps military friends, family

Knowledge: Silver Wings members work to learn
about military life, get involved in the community

By Andrew Martin
cohinieurmo Minn

War may be on the hori-
zon. but that‘s not worrying
Susan Messmer anymore.

Messmer. a fine arts se-
nior. had reservations about
the future military career of
her fiance. Albert Harris. a
music junior and cadet ma
jor in the Arnold's Air Force
Society, an organization of
the UK Air Force ROTC.

To calm her fears, Mess-
mer joined Silver Wings, a
UK organization that edu-
cates its members in areas of
national defense. profession-
alism and civic leadership.

“The possibility of his
going to war his entire life
and the possibility of his not
being home if I were to have
children were issues," Mess-
mer said.

Silver Wings focuses on
relatives of Air Force cadets.

but anyone interested in
learning can become a mem-
ber. The group meets once a
week in Buell Armory.

Founded nationally in
the 19508, Silver Wings was
devised to educate wives
about the facts of military
service. particularly in the
Air Force. The goal was for
wives to understand the sig-
nificance and specifics of
their husbands' jobs.

Silver Wings programs
operate at Air Force ROTC de
tachments across the nation.

With women playing a
more prominent role in the

verse. Harris said.

“The organization is pri-
marily for wives, fiancees
and girlfriends of Air Force
personnel," said Harris. who
is a liaison for Silver Wings

and Arnold’s Air Society.

“However, men can join as

the membership
has become much more di-

well. The current president
of Silver Wings is a male."

To become a member. one
must be initiated. Pledges
plan community service pro-
jects, learn about the history
of the military and the ROTC.

Members work with
Arnold’s Air Society to do
community service projects
and learn more about mili-
tary life.

“Before joining Silver
Wings, I didn‘t understand
much about the military or
the world events that involve
the US. military," Messmer

Activities for Silver
Wings and Arnold’s commu-
nity service includes work
with the Ronald McDonald
house, canned good drives.
work at homeless shelters
and various other places
around Lexington.

“Pretty much anything
that people suggest is consid-
ered,” Harris said.

Another goal is to visit
Air Force bases, where many
future Air Force personnel
will live with their families.

“An Air Force base is
like a city. It's self-contained.
You never really have to
leave it," Harris said.

Many people confuse
joining Silver Wings with
joining the military Mem-
bers have been hard to come
by because of this miscon-
ception, Messmer said. With
the seemingly imminent war
with Iraq, many are skepti-
cal, even fearful about join-
ing, she said.

“As soon as people heard
this program was affiliated
with the military. they were
turned off," Messmer said.

director of women’s studies.

The issue isn‘t just about
women, Overall argues.

“Sexism not only effects
women but men can also be
discriminated against on the
grounds of sex,” she said.

It‘s also an issue that
should interest college stu-

“Our gender affects the
life choices we make, and
without noticing it we can be
influenced by the norms we
may want to rethink," she

Callahan said the lecture
won’t be something to sleep
through. “If you come expect
