Man in head-butt deat
pleads to lesser charge

By Dariush Shala
mt kzurum KERNE

In John Holmes Sr.‘s
eyes. “justice was not
served” in the guilty plea of
the man originally charged
with killing his son.

Aaron Roth. 20. of
Louisville. entered a guilty
plea to fourth-degree as-
sault Monday. a charge
stemming from the death of
Nicholas Holmes. a Univer‘
sity of Dayton student, at
the Royal Lexington Apart-
ments on Nicholasville
Road Jan. 18.

According to Lexington
police reports. Roth head-
butted Holmes. causing him
to fall to the ground and
strike his head on concrete.

It is still unknown
whether the head-butt or
the impact with the con-
crete caused Holmes' death.
said Prosecuting Common-
wealth Attorney Ray Lar-

Police reports indicate
that alcohol factored into
the incident. along with an
accusation of a racial slur
that preceded the fight in
which Holmes died.

Roth entered his guilty
plea in the Fayette County
Circuit Court. and under a
recommendation from the
Commonwealth Attorney.
Roth would serve one year
in jail.

Police initially charged
Roth with reckless homi-
cide in the death of Holmes.

“Homicide is when you
take someone‘s life." said
John Holmes. "Aaron Roth
took my son's life."

Roth did not return
phone calls. and his mother
declined to comment.

Larson said this case
was particularly hard.

sations we had with the vic-

tims.“ Larson said. refer-
ring to both the Roth and
Holmes families.

“There‘s nothing satisfy-

where life is lost. no matter
what sentence occurs." he

John Holmes said he
and his family were partic-
ularly unhappy that Roth
ended up being charged
with fourth-degree assault.

"I'm disappointed that
Aaron Roth did not plead
guilty to reckless homicide,
because he killed my son."
Holmes said.

losing a child. I think, is the

‘Tragic': U.S. Marine shoots, kills a wounded Iraqi in mosque

By Anthony Shadid

killing of a wounded Iraqi by
a U.S. Marine in I-‘allujah was
termed a "tragic incident" by
the U.S. military commander

The incident was captured

Brooks shuts

By Jeff Patterson
1111 KENTUCKY 111111111

The meeting between UK
football coach Rich Brooks
and Athletic Director Mitch
Barnhart yesterday had
nothing to do with Brooks‘ or
his staff‘s job security. the
coach said.

“It was just a meeting.
like we have periodically
throughout the year." Brooks
said. “Talking about where
the football program is.
where it‘s been and where
it's headed."

In the meeting at Memor-
ial Coliseum. Brooks de-
clined to say whether he was
asked to shake up his staff
after the season ends. The
Cats play their final game at
Tennessee Nov 27.

All season long. Brooks
has had to defend his coach-
ing staff. primarily offensive
coordinator Ron Hudson.

The Cats‘ offense. which
ranks last in the Southeast-
ern Conference. with 14.2
points per game. has been
the catalyst of fan criticism.

Hudson has listened to
rumors of his departure for
much of the 2004 season.

“People making those ru-
mors have no credence."
Hudson said. “The people
who are making the rumors

down rumor mill after meeting with AD

are looking for excuses."

Even though Brooks has
said he was disappointed
with his team's offensive pro-
duction. he said he fully sup-
ports Hudson.

“1 don‘t think there is any
tough decision to make on
this staff," Brooks said Nov. 1
at his weekly news confer-
ence. “I have total confidence
in Ron Hudson and what we
are doing."

Brooks said he expects to
renew the contracts of all of
his assistant coaches this off-

“As far as I‘m concerned.
it's up to me," Brooks said
Nov. 1. "If it isn‘t. I guess
somebody can replace me."

Both Barnhart and Presi-
dent Lee Todd have publicly
expressed their support of
Brooks. Phone calls to Barn-
hart yesterday were not im-
mediately returned.

Asked if he'll return next
season. Brooks said. "I‘ve an-
swered that question a bunch
of times. and I'm not going to
address it again until the end
of the season."

Many of the players have
simply ignored rumors re,»
garding their coaches.

”Anybody can get on the
Internet and start a rumor."

Shane Boyd.

With the negativity sur—

has made sure to keep it out
of practice.

“There‘s no sense bring-
ing any of the criticism
about whats sgoing on to the

"(The players) are doing all
they can do to make it right."

The Cats (2-8. 1-6 SEC) are

None of that is to be con-

Toys aren't the only things broke after X-mas

‘Tis the
season to
be jolly
and broke.

T h e

are quickly
ing. and
all over the
c o u n t r y
are prepar-
ing to
s p e n d
hefty sums on entertaining
guests and buying gifts for
close relatives and friends.

According to the National
Retail Federation. the
world's largest retail trade
association. this holiday sea-
son is expected to generate
consumer spending of $219.9
billion. Representing more
than 20 percent of annual
sales. it will be the most ex~
pensive season of the year.

But not everyone. espe-
cially college students. can
purchase luxurious gifts.
With gasoline prices and in-
come rates on the rise and
college income practically
nonexistent. gift buying and
entertaining aren‘t the easi-
est to pull off.

As the semester nears an
end. try searching for a job
in order to make some extra
cash. The National Retail
Federation found that retail-
ers increased their staffing
by 3.9 percent for last year's

holiday season. Many retail-
ers need the extra help. and
college students are perfect
for the roles they need filled.

Just don‘t plan on steal-

- ing your way to happiness
this season. though. The
NRF states that retailers lost
$10.77 billion due to shoplift-
ing and another $15.81 bil-
lion from employee theft.
This is a good way to get ar»
rested and turn your holiday
spirit into a mug shot.

Once you‘ve gathered
enough money or paychecks

, legally - create a shop-
ping list. Write down the
gifts you wish to purchase.
their prices. their recipients.
and their recipient's clothing
sizes. Keep this list with you
while you shop.

A survey conducted by
BIGresearch for the National
Retail Federation found that
51 percent of consumers
hope to receive CDs. DVDs.

books. videos. or video
games as a gift this year.
Other items on con-

sumers‘ wish lists are elec-
tronics. jewelry and home
decor Remember these as
you decide what to buy.

Next. online shopping.
which makes shopping a lot
easier is growing at an ever-
increasing rate. Online sales
are expected to amount to
$144 billion. rising 27 percent
above last year‘s sales.

I like to do my shopping
on eBaycom or Halfcom.

EBay gives you the opportu»
nity to bid on the products
you wish to buy. meaning
you will only spend what
you want to spend. Halfcom
offers deals on all sorts of
products at almost always
half off their retail value.

Look for free shipping
deals on many retailers' on-
line stores as well. Just be
sure to make the order early
enough to receive your pur—
chase on time.

If you don‘t like e-com-
merce. "Black Friday" , the
day after Thanksgiving

Usually in the Thanks-
giving Day newspaper. retail
stores will have ads offering

Ashley Smith. an English

many years.
