Seeing stars and stripes



Iraqis in Michigan paraded through the streets wav-
ing American and Iraqi flags. while others around the
nation greeted signs that Saddam Hussein's regime is
crumbling with tears of joy

Worries about relatives in their homeland per-
sisted, but a wave of relief washed over many in the
Iraqi-American community Wednesday as they saw
news reports of collapsing opposition to US. troops
in Baghdad.

“This is a day we‘ve been waiting for 35 years,” said
Feisal Amin Al-Istrabadi, a Chicago lawyer who went in
late to work after watching events unfold on television.
“It's a tremendous relief that it seems that this is the be-
ginning of the end. I‘m very. very proud to be an Ameri-
can today. as well as an Iraqi."

Spontaneous celebrations broke out in cities with
large Iraqi-American populations. In Dearborn, Mich.,
about 1,200 people gathered in Hemlock Park, chanting
and waving British, American and Iraqi flags. In El Ca-
jon, Calif, home to about 6,000 Iraqi Kurds, about 150
people rejoiced in the streets. And in Everett, Wash.,
hundreds of jubilant Iraqi immigrants danced and
chanted on Colby Avenue. horns blaring.

Earlier in Dearborn, a largely Arab Detroit sub-

slogans in Arabic, including “Hey, Saddam, hey Sad-

Nature writing program open for applications

By Katie Foley

Aspiring writers can take
their work into an outdoor
classroom this summer.

The Summer Environ-
mental Writing Program is a
fbur-week pastoral retreat
into Eastern Kentucky‘s
Robinson Forest. Applications
for the new nature writing
program are due Friday

The program encourages
any undergraduate who is in-
terested in writing ~ whether
they are a poet or a science
writer — to spend time im-
mersed in nature while par-
ticipating in both intense
group activities and solitary
writing time. not to mention

rubbing elbows with promi-
nent writers and naturalists.

The program is designed
to bring students into a set-
ting that evokes thought and
reconnects them to the strong
ties that bind writing and
ecology. said Randall Roorda.
an English professor and pro
gram director

Roorda said it is his "con-
viction that reading. writing.
and living shouldn‘t be sepa-
rate.“ that inspired him to
start this program. along with
the success of a similar pro-
gram he was involved with in
New England. He wants this
program to become a tradi~
tion at UK.

The program is also one
way students can show their

support for Robinson Forest.
located an hour and a half
southeast of Lexington in
Breathitt County. The land
was donated to UK by ED.
Robinson. a Cincinnati tim-
ber baron. UK has recently
considered mining and log-
ging the forest, a move that
has been haunting the minds
of nature lovers and environ-
mentalists alike.

Roorda said he hopes stu-
dents will take away a deeper
understanding of the forest
and of themselves ~ and
what direction they want to
take their writing abilities.

“An experience like this
can prove to be transforma-
tional for someone‘s life.“
Roorda said.

Roorda said he hopes this
experience will expose stu-
dents to the many uses of a
wildlife space. especially one
that is in danger of being

He wants students to see
the forest in an environmen-
tal and social context and rec-
ognize the value that the for-
est holds for all disciplines.

The program costs $500.
which includes room, board.
and all other trip expenses.

“It‘s a domestic study
abroad." Roorda said.

The deadline for all appli-
cations is Friday. but late ap»
plications will be accepted if
a quota is not reached. Dr. Rn
orda hopes for 12 to 15 student





activists who research
Appalachian obstacles

departments and will present their projects soon

By Marti Lee

Angelyn DeBord wants to bring the
Appalachian voice alive through story-

Sanjoy Hazarika. who comes from an
Indian community that. like Appalachia.
has long been stereotyped. wants to help
fight media bias.

And Lynne Faltraco wants to link 10.
cal forestry activists with experts who
support their causes.

These three activists are getting the
time and money to reach these goals
through a new fellowship program creat-
ed by the UK Appalachian (‘enter and
Committee on Social Theory.

DeBord. from Nicklesville. Va. is a
performing artist who has taught story-
telling workshops for more than 25 years.
She has been working on a story-sharing
project during her fellowship and has been
holding workshops at UK. Her work stress-
es the importance of citizens and commu-
nities developing a voice of their own.

“The voice of Appalachia has been
ridiculed historically. and telling your
own story is the first step in communi-
ty’global awareness." DeBord said. 'Go-
ing unheard has huge political and eco-
nomic ramifications."

Hazarika. from Shilong. India. is an
international activist. journalist. nr-
searcher and documentary filmmaker who
has been examining the stereotypes of Ap

House passes gun legislation

Wednesday passed legislation to protect the
firearm industry from lawsuits that allege
links between gun marketing and street vio-
lence. House Republicans said the industry
is being attacked through frivolous suits
blaming gun manufacturers and dealers for
violence by criminals The suits could end
the American gun industry by making com-
panies spend millions in court. said the
chairman of the House Judiciary Commit-
tee. Rep. James Sensenbrenner. R-Wis..
The legislation passed the House by a 285-
140 vote. Democrats. however. said the GOP
legislation banning suits against gun mak-
ers and dealers probably was unconstitu-
tional and was politically motivated. "This
body is considering this bill today because
the National Rifle Association is holding
their annual convention at the end of April
and the majority leadership in this Cham-
ber is compelled to prove to the pro-gun spe-
cial interests that they will do whatever it
takes." said Rep. James McGovern. D—Mass.
The legislation would prohibit lawsuits
from being brought against gun and ammu-
nition manufacturers. distributors. dealers
and importers for damages resulting from
"misuse" of their product.

nounced agreements Wednesday with

Smith were to be unsealed Wednesday in

Student Center houses UK Habitat display

Awareness: Cardboard shacks erected to educate

The goal of this activity was
to educate UK students
about Habitat and its mis-

dard housing.

The display w as part of

a nationwide stiident-initiar

"People don‘t realize
that there is substandard

said Joanna Folz. an execu-

UK Habitat Chapter.

According to Habitat
statistics. 5.3 million US.
households qualify as sub-
