Homegrown reporters: This year's inductees to the Kentucky Journalism

Hall of Fame reflect a diverse group of protectors of freedom, liberty

By Jill Gorin

Six UK alumni journalists joined
an elite group of people yesterday as
they were inducted into the Kentucky
Journalism Hall of Fame.

Surviving members of the group
attended a luncheon and dinner at the
faculty club where they expressed
their sincere gratitude to the school
and remembered their time here at

“Working at the Kernel were the
best years,” said Jim Hampton, Hall of
Fame inductee. “It’s great to be back.
It’s my heart and soul.”

Hampton was editor in-chief of the
Kentucky Kernel in 1959, the first year
the Kernel became a daily newspaper.

The inductees had traveled from
Los Angeles to Miami, doing what they

“We are in a profession that re-
wards hard work,” said Tim Kelly,
publisher of the Lexington Herald-
Leader and Hall of Fame inductee.
“We do what we do for our communi-
ties and society."

Kelly has been executive sports ed-
itor of The Philadelphia Inquirer. man-
aging editor of The Denver Post and
held editor positions at the Daily News
of Los Angeles, but he is happy to final-
ly be back in Kentucky, his home state.

“It’s taken 25 years of twists and
turns," he said.

“I feel like today, I’ve finally been
accepted into the UK School of Jour-
nalism and it feels good."

Kelly admitted journalists may not
exactly be golden when it comes to be
ing cordial and sympathetic, but
stressed the nature of the job depends
on getting the truth.

“We won’t win many congeniality
awards in this business," he said.

One inductee, the late Mike Barry,
knew this all too well. He made his liv-
ing writing amusing editorials chastis-
ing local, state and national politicians
including “Happy“ Chandler, Louie
Nunn, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan
and Joseph McCarthy. His youngest
daughter Ann spoke on his behalf.

She recalled when “Happy” Chan-
dler retired at the same time Barry
was closing the Kentucky Irish Ameri-
can newspaper. Chandler asked if his
retiring had anything to do with Bar-
ry’s leaving.

Barry replied, “What good is the
slingshot if the blimp's not flying?"

Senate OKs

By Mark Boxley

By John Wampler

In what should prove to be very beneficial to students. two
SGA-sponsorcd proposals concerning academic advising and
student representation were accepted into UK policy by the UK
Senate yesterday.

The first proposal dealt with the creation of an Academic
Advising Standing (‘ommittee that will, for the quality of acade»
mic advising and set standards. review and examine faculty and
professional advising.

For the Senate Council. it will make recommendations re
garding academic advising and will consider all other recom-
mendations made to the University Senate involving academic

“We sponsored this bill because the SGA feels that many
students get tripped up in their academic career when it comes
to academic advising," said SGA senator Edwin ()range.

The bill passed unanimously. and appeared to have a large
level of support.

“I think we’ve got it pretty curing faculty and staff. They
want what‘s best for the students," said Keisha Carter, senator.

The second proposal that was passed requested that one. stu-
dent from each college or graduate school‘s Student Advisory
(‘ouncil to also serve and have a vote on the college or graduate
school‘s faculty council or equivalent body.

The stipulation to this proposal was that the student serv
ing on the faculty council would only be involved in decisions
involving academic issues, not promotion or tenure.

()range said this was because not even associate professors
are allowed to vote when another professor applies for full prov
fessorship. It would be unreasonable to expect a student to be
given such permission. he said.

Also. ()range felt that students' focus would be placed more
on academic issues. such as grading policy, than on tenure and

Other Senate action: A proposal was presented, and later
recommitted to committee for further evaluation that would re-
vise the cross-disciplinary requirement in the general education

The proposal would unpair cross-disciplinary courses and
allow the departments within the university to pair them more
accordingly to fit a student‘s individual major.

The premise is that with the current setup, certain classes
are paired with only certain other classes.

The proposition would make it possible to pair a class with—
in a persons major to another class within the major and have it
satisfy the cross-disciplinary requirement.

the source and amount of the new money is

Law will allow
British pubs
open 24 hours


Hoping to cut down on rowdy scenes as thousands of
Britons pour out of pubs simultaneously at the mandatory 11
pm. closing time. the government on Tuesday proposed allow-
ing pubs to stay open 24 hours a day.

Scrapping closing time was the centerpiece of plans to liber-
alize and streamline licensing laws that were inspired by fears
of munitions workers getting drunk during World War I.

“Fixed closing times encourage binge drinking around last
orders." Home Secretary Jack Straw told the House of Com-
mons. “The result is lots of people hitting the streets v and
sometimes each other _ at the same time."

Under the government proposals. released as a discussion
paper. any pub. licensed cafe or restaurant can apply to stay
open for 24 hours. seven days a week.

While some US. cities and towns are moving toward earlier
bar closings to combat heavy drinking. in Britain. the bureau
crats, police and bartenders all believe that longer hours will re-
duce binge drinking and alcohol-related crime.

Children will also be allowed into pubs for the first time.
Eighteen is the minimum legal age for buying liquor in a pub.

“This is a step in the right direction toward the repeal of ar-
chaic laws set during wartime." said Mary Curnock. director of
the British Institute of Innkeeping which represents 16.500 li-

Police and pub keepers expect the 24-hour licenses to be
confined to the centers of London and other big cities. with the
main aim being to stagger closing times between 11 pm. and 3 am.

In Cambridge. Ceri Garrett, landlady of the Baron of Beef
pub. has long pressed for change. Rowdy deadline drinkers re-
cently smashed an ornamental stained glass window at the inn
beside the River Cam.

“Some people down several pints just before closing time."
she said.

As an experiment. bars across Britain were allowed to serve
alcohol around the clock on New Year’s Eve and the night
passed peacefully. encouraging Straw’s officials to go for a radi-
cal overhaul.

The changes would affect 140.000 pubs. restaurants. hotels
and nightclubs in England and Wales. Scotland. which has dif-
ferent drinking laws. already allows pubs in some areas to re-
main open until 3 am.

British studies suggest that alcohol abuse contributes to 40
percent of violent crime. 78 percent of assaults and 88 percent of
criminal damage cases. A 1993 government survey found that 16
percent of all violent incidents happened in or near pubs or
clubs: a study the previous year found 47 percent of violent inci-
dents near pubs happen between 11 pm. and midnight.

The new policy. which could be law by the summer of 2001.
would bring Britain into line with other European countries.

Which is the best? That depends on the

By Lamin Swann

()ne e-inail account is not
enough for today's students.

Many students who take
advantage of the POP (Post Of-
fice Protocol) e-mail at UK also
have other e-mail accounts.
such as Hotmail or Yahoo?

"1 have two free e-mail ac
counts along with my POP ac
count." said Kevin (lritfis. a
telecominunications senior.

“1 use the POP account to
correspond with friends and
also academic use but use my
free accounts when l'm re-
sponding to things on the web."

Students use POP accounts,
which store mail on a computer
disk. usually for academics and
correspondence without the
junk mail. but use web—based
accounts. which store mail on
remote computers owned by the

email company. when respond
ing to items on a web site.
"Students are taking ad-
vantage of both (pop accounts

POP accounts are less in-
clined to receive spam because
ofdifferent authentication pro-
cedures with the sender‘s ac»

Despite POP accounts be
ing more "spam-proof,“ some
students are not comfortable
with the software incorporated
with the POP account.

"1 dislike the Eudora Pro

ics graduate student, Hall
would like to see the university
incorporate e-mail services sim-
ilar to Hotmail.

Due to limited technology
funding. the university is un-
able to offer services similar to
web-based providers without
increasing the technology fee in

there are many web sites such

“The lead singer has a good quality voice."

Despite the fact that many critics claim the
Muse's influences are Radiohead and Nirvana.
drummer Dominic Howard said he sees things

“Our influences are different than Nirvana."
he said. “We certainly like those bands but we

The presence of the piano in the Muse's de-
