Yes. I know Kentucky's
football team isn't
doing that great this
year, but I am still
planning on making
the trip down to
Georgia this weekend
to watch the game.
I'm a big Cats fan
and hope for the
best- but I do have a
few realistic bones in
my body. The joy of
tailgating is what
draws me away from
the Bluegrass this
Saturday. I plan on
partying with my
brothers who are
experienced in the
art of tailgating.
Heck, they'd even

that their wings

some tailgating tips.

Transportation: Anything
big will usually work.
RV's are nice. but
why not go all out
and rent a Greyhound
so you and your
buddies won't have
to draw straws for
the designated

Parking: Sometimes the
efficiency of a
parking lot is not
always present. You
may be forced to
park in an off-road
location, like a
median or atop a
smaller car. so be
prepared to explain
why the underbelly of
your car is broken

The Setup: A large grill
would be nice but it's
not very mobile.
Settle for anything
that you can build a
fire in. A crappy
parking lot with large
enough potholes
works great.

The Food: Basically, all
you need is
barbequed anything,
as long as it is meat.
Barbequed tofu just
doesn't sound
appealing. Chili is
also acceptable as
long as it's spicier
than curry, but
without that gastro-
intestinal bleeding.

The Drink: Some people
might say that you
don't need alcohol to
have a good time.
Okay, so I lied,
nobody will ever say
that, especially with
the way the Cats are
playing this season.
Drink up!!!

Dealing with the Five-0:
Assign a spokesman for
the group, usually
the one that is able

to "8.5." well. Have
them explain that the
Porta-John was
already tipped over
when you got there.
Trust me, it will make
more sense after
you've downed a

Hate crimes unusual, ;

leave students tense

Across the way: Other local universities have not
had any reports of racially motivated crimes

By Andrea Uhde

UK suffered four ethnically mo-
tivated crimes within the past
month. Other local colleges say hate
crimes have not been an issue.

Detective Alan Saylor of the UK
Police said these are the first ethni-
cally targeted assaults he can re-
member in his 15 years at the de-

Hate crimes are crimes motivat—
ed toward people of a specific race.
gender. religion, sexual orientation.
ethnicity. or disability. These
crimes have lead police officers to
instigate a special investigation for
the criminals.

Saylor. who is investigating the
crimes, calls the acts deplorable and
said the department is working hard
to catch the criminals.

The first of the four crimes. in
volved an international student be-
ing pushed and called names by sev-
eral individuals on Sept. 29 Two
other crimes on Sept. 28 and Oct. 5
involved an international student
being assaulted by a man in a black
truck. The last one. also on Oct. 5.
involved an international student
being chased by a man in a black

truck yelling racial slurs at him.

Officers at the University of
Louisville. Morehead State Univer-
sity and Transylvania University
said no ethnically motivated crimes
have been reported there.

Transylvania University‘s Po—
lice Captain Robert Gowdy said two
students from the Middle East have
left Transy recently even though
there haven‘t been any assaults.

Chief of Police Rebecca
Langston said UK's campus may be
more prone to assaults because the
population is larger. and the campus
is centered in an urban area.

Until the suspect or suspects at
UK are caught. the police are urging
all students to remain cautious for
their safety.

For now. international students
are left wondering if they will be the
next victims. “Everyday you take
precautions not to get in a tight cor-
ner." said Beshan Kulapala. an elec-
trical engineering senior from an is-
land south of India.

“I used to walk around late at
night to the computer lab. but now I
don't." he said.

Kulapala said many of his
friends now carry pepper spray for

For your safety

Communicate the message
that you're calm, confident
and know where you are going.

Stand tall, walk purposefully
and make eye contact.

Don't overburden yourself with

books, packages or groceries
that make it hard to react.

Have your car, office or house
key in hand.

Be careful if anyone in a car
asks you for directions

If you suspect you are being

followed by someone on foot.
cross the street and head for
the nearest well-lighted area.
