No matter what your major, no
matter what your style, Kennedy Book

Kennedy also offers services for stu-
dents such as copying and faxing.

“Kennedy Book Store was built
on having used books," said owner
Carol Behr. “We stock every book for
every class." Besides course text-
books. Kennedy carries related refer-
ence materials for specialized disci-
plines including law and allied health

Kennedy also has the Art Part

students as well as the Greek Shop for
all you sorority girls and fraternity

“It's our experience and com-
mitment to the students that makes
Kennedy great," said Behr. Part of that
commitment includes offering a wide
variety of services to students.

Students can fax, copy. buy stamps
and phone cards. Not only does
Kennedy a0cept the plus account, they
give parents the option to leave their
credit card information for their student

including a great location and plenty of
free parking. They also have extended

Dance for a Cause


Alisa Oerther I Kernel PR

Greek Sing is the one night of
the year when all the fraternities and
sororities come together for a good
cause. The Sigma Alpha Epsilon and
the Chi Omega chapters host Greek
Sing every year. All the money raised
goes directly to the Make a Wish
Foundation. “We choose Make A Wish
because it effects others on a national
level,” explained Logan Mayer the SAE
chairman. Mayer and Mallory
Bonbright worked many months plan-
ning the 2006 Greek Sing, which sold
5,700 tickets.

Greek Sing is a four-hour
dance competition. The competitors
are members of each fraternity and
sorority. Some teams start planning
and practicing in
December, even though
the competition isn't until
early spring. “The com-
petitiveness is what
brings the people and in
turn what brings the
money," said Mayer.
Since SAE and Chi 0

never left out of the dancing. They
perform a short dance together as an
intermission for the competitors. Pi
Beta Phi, with their Broadway theme,
was the 2006 overall champion. It was
their second year winning Greek Sing.
Sigma Pi won first place for the frater-
nities and Kappa Alpha Theta for the
sororities. Each receives a trophy and
bragging rights for the whole year.

Mayer felt that Greek Sing won

most popular Greek event, but also
because it is for a good cause. Greek
Sing raised $30,000 for
the Make a Wish
Foundation. Many local
business and restaurant
sponsors, such as Office

money. Also, each ticket

directly to the fund.

Salottos looks to be the new hot spot
in town. The atmosphere offers many differ-
ent personalities. which are all very intriguing.
As soon as you go through the front door of
the restaurant and lounge you will see a large
wooden bar accented by beautiful hanging
mirrors and shelves full of glassware.

Salottos has lavish booths and chairs, where
people can eat lunch, dinner or have a drink.
The front of Salottos is great for lounging with
friends during their much advertised happy
hour from 11 a. m. -7 pm.

Walk toward the back and you will
find a classy atmosphere with a large dance
room stocked with high powered music and
lighting equipment. A change from the front of
the bar to the dance area is perfect for sitting
and watching others or dancing all night long.

The newest and the most exciting
part of the bar is the patio out front. it is going
to be the largest front patio around town with
a great view of Limestone Street. Sitting out
on the patio will be great for day or night.

Salottos' kitchen serves food from 11
am. — 10 pm. Students will want to stop by.
because they have a menu out of this world
that includes baked shrimp oreganata, pesto
chicken panini and grandma and auntie's
manicotti. They have a 9 ounce filet mignon
for $19, which is a great price. And UK plus
accounts are welcome.

Aside from the great daily drink spe-
cials and the extensive menu. Salottos offers
something new no one else has in town: a
VIP package. “We have a limo service that
will pick you and your friends up." said owner
Chn‘s Benezet. He went on to say that they
offer different levels of VIP services: a bronze.
silver. gold and platinum. Each package
comes with unique benefits from Salottos.
And there are student discounts with the VIP
packages. This service would be great for
birthday, bachelor or bachelorette parties.

Overall, the staff is great. the atmos-
phere is outstanding and food was fit for a
king (or queen). Bring your friends for a night
of fun and dancing or just come in for happy

This year's best band, Hundred
Dollar Handshake, offers a little bit of every-
thing: rock n' roll, blues, reggae and even
funk. Hundred Dollar Handshake was voted
best of UK for 2006. This band consists of
five guys that have been playing together
for about a year. Ryan Usher is the lead
guitar vocalist, Phil Brooks is at the bass,
Curtis Lowe on the saxophone, Elliot
Newman jams the drums, and Jonathan
Grossman plays the keyboard. You may
have seen Hundred Dollar Handshake at
The Dame, Two Keys Tavern or the
Fishtank. “Each of us contributes to writing

our own songs, ”explained Usher. At their
shows they play half covers and half their
own music. They don't have enough songs
to play a full set, but they are working on it.
Hundred Dollar Handshake has talent and
they are on their way to the top. Don't miss
them this month. Hundred Dollar
Handshake will be playing at Goodbarn
Field on Aug.21 and at the Fishtank on
August 31. Don't pass up the chance to
see the best band on campus.

Facebook: The New Comic Book—
of Our Time

Melissa Riggs I Kernel PR

There may be a reason why UK
voted Facebook the number one website
among students. The website has 2,500 col-
leges involved throughout the United States
with the number growing everyday and is
the seventh most visited website on the

“Facebook is an online directory
that connects people through social net-
works," states the Facebook homepage.
Students use the website to look up new
friends or people they have lost touch with.

“It's quite amazing," said Laura
Ludwig, a Psychology senior. “People have
contacted me that I have not seen or talked
to in over eight years.” Ludwig says she
gets on Facebook at least twice a day, but
many times more than that. “It is mainly
when l‘m sitting at my computer working on
a paper that | find myself drift to the web-

Many students may find Facebook
addictive. With the growing numbers and
the increase in technology every day, what
is in store for the future? Soon computers
will be in every classroom and at every
desk. Students now find themselves on
Facebook during class lectures. Ludwig
talked about how she took a computer class

here at UK and majority of the students
were “facebooking” during the whole class
period. When our parents were growing up
the big class distraction was comic books.
Many teachers banned comic books from
classrooms and now that teachers find that
students are obsessing over the internet,
even in high school, the same problem aris-
es. ls the Facebook website the comic
book of our day?

While Facebook can be fun, inter-
acting with friends and surfing through peo-
ple's profiles, it does have its down-falls.
Students might think that merely creating a
profile for fun and posting pictures of them-
selves may be harmless, but because it is
over the worldwide internet there is nothing
to stop anyone from looking at your person-
al information. Any person can view what a
student does with their free time, be it a
marketer, a parent or college official. Many
of my friends that have graduated to go on
to find jobs have had to clean up their
Facebook site due to potential future
employers. It is becoming common practice
for a company to research a person before '
offering them a job and Facebook has
become a new tool for them to use.
Students have to clean up pictures of them-
selves and inappropriate “wall" quotes that
friends post.

Facebook is fun to collect friends
and find out what people have been up to.
Students post pictures of the latest great
time they had and it can be a fun way to
pass the time. Facebook being the most
popular website among UK students can be
harmless if used in the proper way. Just
remember that no section of the internet is
private. so be cautious of what is said or
shown on the website.
