Father seeks to curb underage drinking

By Crystal Little

Michael Muth Sr. said he
might fall apart soon, but not
until his message of hope has
resonated with UK students
and Lexington residents.

While Muth said he is still
trying to find meaning in his
son Brian‘s alcohol-related
death last week. he‘s also plan-
ning a task force to tackle the
many problems that drinking
can create.

“This is a real personal
thing and I‘ve been trying to
deal with it in the third per-
son." he said. “it's been diffi-

He said he hopes interested
parties in the UK and Lexing-
ton communities contact him
and plan a round-table discus-
sion to determine a positive
path that creates a safe envi-
ronment for students.

He wants the discussion
panel to ideally include UK
President Lee Todd. Student
Government President Rachel

Watts. the UK Parent Associa-
tion. a student who was close to
Brian Muth and a student who
didn't know him. Mayor Teresa
Isaac. and UK and Lexington

When asked to compare the
forum's plan with other alco-
hol-awareness organizations,
Muth made clear his
support for Mothers
Against Drunk Driving
but said the program he
envisioned will be dis-
tinctly different.

“MADD is a wonder-
ful program." he said.
“but I don't want what
(I) feel to get confused
with MADD.

“I'm not naive
enough to tell (students) to stop
drinking. 1 don't think there‘s
anything wrong with drinking
a little bit." he said. “as long as
it‘s in moderation. it's in con»
trol. and there's been some
planning involved."

Such precautions are key to
intelligent forethought. Muth


explained. and will allow peo-
ple to make their own choices
in a wise manner if they do

“It's not like Big Brother is
looking at them." he said. “It's
so important for students to
know we don't expect ridicu-
lous things from them 7- (they)
have to figure out a lot
of these things for
themselves. and (par-
ents) as guardians have
a responsibility to let
them make their own

Muth's plan echoes
a similar program in
the works in the Office
of Greek Affairs. said
Susan West. assistant
dean of students and director
of fraternity and sorority af-

"What we have been em-
barking on is a program to re-
duce alcohol use campuswide.“
West said. "This program at UK
will achieve the same purpose."

The program. the Genesis

Group. is a coalition of 42 na-
tional and international frater-
nities and sororities dedicated
to finding solutions to binge
drinking and the student alco.
hol culture.

Watts. the SG president.
said she thinks both the forum
and the Genesis Group are ex.
cellent ideas.

“I would definitely get in
volved." Watts said of Muth's
planning discussion. “This is
something that has really af-
fected everyone."

Muth said he ultimately
hopes for a successful program
that might even spread to col-
lege campuses across the na-

“Some kind of product will
be produced." he said. “That
will never justify losing Brian.
but it'll help.“

Cheney criticizes Kerry's leadership ability

By Johnl’ Harris
mt wisumctou POST

NEW YORK Vice President Dick (‘h
eney reached back decades into .lolm Kerry's
life last night. arguing in taunting language
that the Democratic presidential nominee
has demonstrated through his public state
ments and votes that he is unfit to be coin-
mander in chief in an age of termrism

“History has shown that a strong and
purposeful America is vital to preserving
freedom and keeping us safe yet time and
again Senator Kerry has made the wrong
call on national security." (‘heney told the
Republican National Convention. on a night
when President Bush arrived in the city in
preparation for his address tonight.

Reciting a litany of what he called mis-
guided statements by Kerry. (‘heney in re
marks prepared for delivery. started with a
comment the Democrat made while in his
twenties. saying that he wanted US troops
deployed "only at the directive of the United

then cited the Massachusetts
senator's defense votes from the 1980s. a vote
against the first l’ersian (:qu War in 1991.
against a funding request last year to pay
for the lraq occupation. concluding with his
recent call for a "more sensitive" approach
in the fight against terrorism.

"He talks about leading a more sensitive
war on terror. as though al-Qaiila will be im-
pressed with our softer side." (‘heney said.
(‘ontinuing his assault at Madison Square
(larden. the vice president added: ”Senator
Kerry denounces American action when
other countries don‘t approve as if the
whole (lhjt‘t‘l of our foreign policy were to
please a few persistent critics."

The theme for the convention's penulti-
mate night was "l.and of ()pimrtunity." de-
signed to tout the administration‘s econom-
ic plans and make the case that prosperity is
returning llut the theme of fear of the
prospect of terrorism. and of Kerry's al»
leged inability to fight it remained by far
the dominant note from the podium.

Keynote speaker Sen Zell Miller of



(leorgia. a disaffected Democrat who has '

taken flight from his party to endorse Bush.
struck many of the same arguments of (‘h»
eney. in language that was even more mock-
ing of Kerry a colleague he has previous-
ly campaigned for and hailed as a war hem.

Noting several Kerry votes against
weapons systems. Miller crowed: "This is
the man who wants to be commander in
chief of our US. Armed Forces? US. forces
armed with what'.’ Spitballs""

Twelve years ago. Miller. then the gover-
nor of Georgia. gave the keynote at the De-
mocratic convention that nominated Bill
(Tlinton. at the same Madison Square Gar-
den hall where Republicans meet now. De-
mocrats have said Miller‘s move proves the
opportunism and inconsistency that Repub
Iicans accuse Kerry of. But Miller cast his
appearance as one of principle: “I ask
which leader it is today that has the vision.
the willpower: and. yes. the backbone to best
protect my family." he said. “The clear an-

swer to that question has placed me in this I

hall with you tonight."

Powell said he disagrees with those who

“At the base level. unless you are involved

Group offers realistic options

Controversial platforms. opinions
and ideologies are often relegated to
posters. protests and T-shirts.

This isn't the case with UK Stu-
dents for Life's message

The abortion-opposing group has
found a way for its message to surpass
the Student Center‘s Free Speech area
and find a place in people's lives. no
matter their beliefs.

And while this editorial board is
split on the abortion issue. we applaud
the group. along with Student Govern
ment. for finding a way to make its
message applicable in the real world.

Last night. the groups hosted a
pregnancy resource forum on campus.
where health insurance. housing. fi-
nancial aid. counseling and childcare,

among other issues. were discussed.
UK Student Health Services. the ad-
ministration and the President's (‘oni-

mission on Women are just a few of

the groups that gave unbiased informa-
tion on what‘s normally a very biased

As opposed to upholding the mud
throwing. name-calling and negativity
of the abortion controversy. this pro
gram had roots in positivity.

Radical and iitopian visions were
left at the door, left in the place of prac-
tical advice and options.

More groups should use the same
approach. Here are some suggestions:

l’ro-choice advocates. tell students
where to get the proper health care and
counseling after having an abortion.

(lay marriage proponents. let peo
ple know how to get the benefits
straight couples receive joint insur-
ance. inheritance and hospital visita-
tion rights.

(lun control opponents. do more to
show people how to handle guns safely
and where they can safely use their

The power of screaming slogans
telling you what to think has long lost
its effectiveness on a student body that
largely has been raised on television
propaganda and talking heads.

Take tip the UK Students for Life‘s
approach and educate us with realistic

()therw'ise. you will have little ef»
fect on this community
