Dough-Nuts 5K raises more than $9,000 for Habitat for Humanity By Roy York

On Saturday, 301 runners learned what happens when a 3.1 mile run is mixed with one dozen Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It's not pretty, but the pain was worth the gain. UK Habitat for Humanity raised more than $9,000 through the UK Habitat for Humanity Krispy Kreme Challenge, a 5K race with a twist. Those who accepted the challenge had to finish the race in under one hour while stopping to eat 12 doughnuts at the halfway mark. “This turned out to be much more money than we were originally anticipating,” UK Habitat President Eric Ellis said. “By working closely with Lexington Habitat we were able to host the event much more cheaply than expected. We also received bigger sponsorships than we expected, and we were very excited about that.” The money raised from the event was donated to Lexington Habitat for Humanity and will be used to build houses for families who live in poverty-level housing. For the 2009-10 school year, UK Habitat donated $25,500. Lance O'Cull, the challenge winner and graduate of UK's Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce, turned in a time of 23:28 for the course. He reached the doughnuts in just over eight minutes and looked unfazed at the finish, but O'Cull admitted he had practiced at a sim-

Food, music entertain Japanese festival-goers By Zach Walton

Japanese and Kentucky culture collided this weekend and UK students took part in the celebration. The annual Sakura Festival took place at Yuko-En on the Elkhorn, the official KentuckyJapan Friendship Garden of Georgetown, Ky., over the weekend to showcase the best that Japan and Kentucky have to offer during the garden's 10th anniversary. The festival displayed traditional Japanese acts such as swordmanship and Noh theater, along with UK students performing a song and traditional dance and jazz music. Nobuko Patton, a UK Japanese language instructor, along with her husband, Nathan Patton, organized the event. With good weather contributing to the large turnout, Nobuko said festival-goers could enjoy the variety of international culture. “We try to do new things every year with the jazz trio and African drums performing,” she said. “We have martial arts and other international culture. We're not sticking to Japanese culture, we want to introduce people to world culture. It's See Festival on page 7

At the single-hand motion of the platoon leader, the quiet breaks. After seven minutes of machine gun booms and constant paint ball splattering, the mission is complete and the forces are taken hostage. For the Army ROTC cadets at UK, these types of drills are a part of their biannual field training exercises meant to prepare them for life after college. The event is especially important to the 27 cadets in their third year of ROTC, MS 3’s, who receive their final training before being evaluated at a summer course. This course, called LDAC, will essentially determine the cadets’ careers upon graduation, said Captain Joey Orr. “This is our last chance to really train them before LDAC, and this training is imperative to their success,” Orr said. The ROTC students arrived at Artemus Training Base on Friday morning, and the MS 3’s immediately broke off from the rest, taking on a higher stress level of activity than the other cadets. They began by doing day and nighttime land navigation on their own, going out on quests to find different points See ROTC on page 8

Fraternity lights up the volleyball court By Drew Teague

One fraternity turned out the lights to get the games started with the UK women’s volleyball team. Pi Kappa Phi painted up under black lights for a new event, “Blacklight Volleyball,” to benefit its philanthropy, Push America, a charity that works to improve the lives of disabled persons. On Saturday night Pi Kappa Phi started a six-team tournament in Alumni Gym with three members of the UK volleyball squad in attendance to referee and line judge the tournament. With such a large-scale event, Pi Kappa Phi has been working for a while to get this event pulled off, said Tyler Frazier, telecommunications junior

and Push America Chair. “You have to jump through a lot of hoops to set something like this up,” Frazier said “We really had to get a head start on (planning).” A team of Phi Sigma Rho members came prepared with a volleyball decorated with highlighter. The members were excited at the chance to compete, said Cassie Cox, a member of Phi Sigma Rho and electrical engineering freshman. “We wanted to do Sigma Spike but that got canceled, and we were like, ‘Oh, blacklight volleyball, we’re going to do it,’ ” Cox said with a laugh. The outer edge of the net glowed purple under the black lights and green lines lit up the net, helping participants see where to hit the ball. Frazier said he thought this would be a

Alert system making progress, needs work KERNEL EDITORIAL


Will basic cable mean lesser guests for Conan O'Brien? Conan O'Brien is headed to basic cable. Will Hollywood's biggest stars follow? For almost every talk show host, A-list guests set a program apart from its competition. Land the exclusive couch visit from George Clooney, and expect a flood of TV watchers to follow. Rivalries among the current crop of chatterers can be crazily competitive: If you want your biggest clients to grab an invitation from Oprah Winfrey, you better not book them on any other talk show first. While hosting "The Tonight Show," O'Brien didn't always draw strong ratings among TV's insomniacs, but he did collect a steady stream of pop culture luminaries, particularly among music acts and up-and-coming actors. With O'Brien (who lost his NBC gig in January when the network returned prime-time washout Jay Leno to his former late-night slot) moving from a big network to cable television's TBS, his viewership could slip dramatically, even with TBS pledging to promote O'Brien's November launch aggressively. This year, TBS is No. 7 among cable networks, averaging 1.7 million prime-time viewers, according to Nielsen Co. figures. NBC, on the other hand, may be last among the major networks, but it still has an audience that's more than three times larger. Studio marketing executives say O'Brien won't necessarily enjoy the same priority as he did on "The Tonight Show" and his previous talk show, "Late Night," but he could still be a key destination for younger, hipper performers. Russell Brand, yes. Russell Crowe, no. One executive says that if "The Tonight Show" suffered from poor lead-ins from NBC's anemic prime-time

Some areas on campus are safer than others. The armed robbery that occurred April 12 at Cooperstown Drive and Oldham Court around 10:15 p.m helps hammer in this point. According to an April 13 Kernel article, three armed suspects robbed two victims of a wallet, a laptop computer, two cell phones and cash. This is the second robbery to occur in the area within a two-month span, and although there may not be any connection between the two crimes, it's clear students may want avoid that area at night. UK students complain about how UK Alert does not get information out quickly enough, and some of the argument is valid. UK has to give its students as much safety information as possible to preserve campus safety. Additionally, some students live in close proximity to where the two robberies have occurred and no student should have to endure such safety concerns. So, instead of using the UK Twitter account to tell students to “make like a snow bunny,” use the Twitter account as a means to get out the same message UK Alert is sending. The same goes for Facebook. Yes, there is a need for more transparency so concerned individuals aren't left in the dark. Visiting a website with no information



lineup, the situation will be even more dire at TBS, larded with reruns of shows such as "Seinfeld," "Family Guy" and "The Office." Did anyone even know that TBS already had a late-night talk show hosted by comedian George Lopez? But another marketing guru says that if O'Brien's new show is good and the ratings are good, talent will follow. The best comparison, some say: Comedy Central's "The Daily Show," whose Jon Stewart welcomes a pretty impressive crop of cultural and political names. Let the booking begin. MCT

Using social networking, something students routinely check, will get the message out quickly without the lag of the phone alert system. As always, time is the most important issue in emergency situations. Students, if you have to be out at night, be responsible and utilize campus safety measures and refrain from unsafe behavior. A situation like this is avoidable if the proper steps are taken to ensure safety. Furthermore, the bare minimum information should be enough of an incentive to pressure students to stay out of an area where a crime has occurred. In a perfect world, UK Police would be able to get information to the proper UK officials instantaneously so the situation can be disseminated to campus just as quickly. However, dissemination of accurate information takes time and UK has to release information as the situation develops. UK must be creative in sending out its alerts so they reach students as soon as possible, and students must use the services in place and avoid walking into a potentially dangerous situation. Until crime ceases, certain places will always remain safe and others will be known for their safety issues. Utilizing its resources, though, UK can ensure that despite the situation, students will always be aware and safe.

CD Central celebrates 15th anniversary with music By Zach Walton

Lexington’s resident record store celebrated its 15th birthday on Saturday the only way it knew how— with music. CD Central celebrated its 15th anniversary in conjunction with Record Store Day by having local bands perform and hosting a store-wide sale in appreciation of the customers that have created a culture around the local store. In retrospect of the event, owner Steve Baron looked back on the origins of the store as a place that catered to the used CD market. He said the store has grown to accomodate almost every music demographic. CD Central was founded when the majority of record stores sold mostly new CDs and there wasn't really a market for used CDs. Baron saw this as a big growth market and opened CD Central with 95 percent used stock. In the past 15 years, the store has grown and has been able to appeal to a broader audience with the addition of records, DVDs and posters. “We moved to our current location in 1999, we were able to spread out and get bigger,” Baron said. With its location next to UK's campus, Baron views the store as a great market to appeal to college students, but they’re not the only people to shop at CD Central. “We get people from all over,” Baron said. “We get people in their 30s and 40s, older folks who get jazz here. There's a broad cross-section to appeal to. We're the only record store in the New Circle Road area so we can serve UK but much more.”

The store had its true anniversary at the end of March, but with the inception of Record Store Day three years ago, Baron moved the anniversary back in order to celebrate them together.

“Any good city should support one good record store; we want to be that store.” STEVE BARON Owner, CD Central

"We created our own holiday to remind people that record stores are still around," PHOTO COURTESY OF MATT JORDAN Baron said. With 15 years behind them, Baron CD Central patrons look through racks of discounted CDs in the store's parking lot for CD Central's 15th looks to an uncertain future but hopes that anniversary on Saturday. CD Central will be around for another 15 years. “I don't know where we'll be 15 years, let alone five years, from now,” Baron said. “Music distribution has changed with fewer record stores as a result. Any good city should support one good record store; we want to be that store.” The employees share a similar sentiment, as Michael Lunsford will tell you. “We provide an alternative to a pretty mainstream town,” Lunsford said. “You can find things that are only here. We also support local bands.” The music scene is constantly changing, but CD Central will keep the music playing for students and the community for years to come. Lunsford hopes the scene will continue to foster music lovers like him. “We're all music geeks here,” he said.

Athletes visit Nicaragua during break By Garrett Bonistalli

Five UK athletes found themselves visiting an orphanage during their unconventional Spring Break trip to Nicaragua. UK football players Jacob Lewellen and Marcus Davis; volleyball players Ann Armes and Sarah Rumley; and women’s soccer player Laura Novikoff all made the trip to the Central American country. The trip was made possible through Athletes in Action, an international Christian sports ministry program. While in Nicaragua, the athletes spent the bulk of their time at an orphanage, participating in games and getting to know some of the kids, an experience that moved Lewellen, a freshman defensive end, the most during his stay in Nicaragua. “To me, what stood out the most was the fact that these kids are so hurt on the inside, but they put on a smile and cling to the people that come out, and they really attach to them. They show you love and they wear a smile even though they’re hurting,” Lewellen said, “It’s really re-enforcing to yourself to say that you can come back to the states and nothing that we’re experiencing here is as bad as what they’re experiencing (in Nicaragua).





Novikoff “We should always have a smile on our face for the opportunities we have here ... I really saw how it impacted me when I got back and now I look at life a lot differently.” Like Lewellen, Davis, a junior center and three-time SEC Academic Hon-

or Roll student, was encouraged the most by the relationships he formed with the kids at the orphanage. “I would have to say (what that stood out most) was how great it was to connect with the kids. The kids were able to trust and befriend us; they really wanted to be with us,” Davis said. “I think it would have been easy for them to say that these are just more visitors. But instead, they genuinely wanted to be around us.” Along with the experience, Davis said he made a new friend at the orphanage during his stay. “I made a pretty good friend down there, a kid by the name of Ayuhendo,” he said. “He showed me a lot about his culture and just the things they do to have fun. It was fun and it was great, I loved hanging out with him. If I could go back and hang out with him and see him again that would be great. And if not, I hope he’s blessed with whatever he’s doing.” When asked if he would go back to Nicaragua or visit another developing country, Lewellen gave a clear-cut answer: Yes. “I would definitely go back, and if not to Nicaragua then to any other place,” Lewellen said. “I got the hunger to see other places in developing areas and to see how they can impact my life as much as I can impact their lives.”

“We’re not sticking to Japanese culture, we want to introduce people to world culture.” NOBUKO PATTON Japanese language instructor

UK students Katie Siler, Aly Proctor and Austin Moss along with UK alumna Sabrina Sheikh performed the popular Japanese song “Kitte no Nai Okurimono,” which translates to “a gift with no stamp,” in front of a pond at the garden. After the song, the group performed a variant of a traditional Japanese dance called “Soran Bushi.” By acting out the casting and pulling in of nets, the dance signifies the art of fishing and the way of the fisherman.

The performances allowed students to experience a richer image Japan, said Nobuko. “As a teacher, when I took the students to perform last year, they felt strongly tied to (the) culture,” Patton said. For the first time at the Sakura Festival, UK students and a professor performed jazz pieces for the audience. The set was played by pianist and assistant professor of jazz studies Raleigh Dailey, bassist and music graduate student Danny Cecil, and drummer and mechanical engineering graduate student James Polley. While Polley had been playing jazz for a long time, this was the first time he had performed at an event like this. “It's the first time I've mixed my love of Japanese culture with music,” Polley said. The crowd was sizeable this year but the organizers hope to draw larger crowds as the event continues to grow. Volunteers for the festival hope to make the event and the Yoko-En on the Elkhorn garden a place the Commonwealth can be proud of, Nobuko said. “Keep coming back, it will keep getting prettier and prettier,” said Nathan Patton.

page, Pi Kappa Phi wanted teams to be creative and make blacklight jerseys, which is exactly what the members of Phi Sigma Rho did. They decorated their shirts with highlighters, with their team name on the front and a number and nickname on the back and wore tall white socks as well. “We started (working on our shirts) a couple of hours ago,” Cox said. Between games, the three UK volleyball team members were out on the court bumping and setting the ball to each other as best they could with the lack of light that they weren’t use to. Gretchen Giesler, an engineering sophomore and UK women’s volleyball team member, thought the event was a great idea. “It’s really hard, because it’s dark, but I think it’s a fun idea,” Giesler said. With the cooperation of the volleyball team, Frazier said, Pi Kappa Phi earned more than just their help this game. “We actually formed a partnership with the volleyball team, and we are going to be their ball boys for the coming season,” he said.

Brandon Murray, a chemical engineering senior, turned in a time of 50:10 as sweat washed the last of the glaze from his face. Doubled over and breathing heavily, he walked past the doughnut mascot offering challengers a victory Krispy Kreme. Two minutes later he lost his breakfast. “The last three (doughnuts) were the worst,” Murray said. “I was smashing three of them together and dripping water on them to get the sugar off … It took me like 23 minutes to do the doughnuts.” Even some who trained for the event struggled. Dan Wavering, an accounting junior, said he practiced eating Kroger doughnuts a few days before the week. Before

the race, he said he was on pace to eat the dozen in just under seven minutes and said he would make up time with his eating pace. “I know I won't throw up,” Wavering said. “I think I'll finish in under 45 minutes.” He made good on his promise to keep the doughnuts down, but he turned in a time of 47:05. “I was on pace for the first eight (doughnuts), but it took me like 10 minutes for the last four,” Wavering said. “I'll definitely come back next year. I've got the experience. Maybe I'll get more in shape.” UK Habitat hopes to make the event an annual fundraiser. The event started at N.C. State in 2004 with 12 runners but has grown to 5,500 runners in 2009. Ellis think the UK version can rival that event within a few years. “We’re talking about having group awards, a costume competition, and other twists to make the event better,” Ellis said. “We’re also considering timing the Casual Runner division to appeal more to serious runners … We plan to grow it as much as we possibly can in order to raise as much money as we can for Lexington Habitat.”

UK defeats Florida behind Wijas’ Sunday performance By Aaron Smith

For the first time in the last four conference series, UK left the weekend a winner behind an unexpected but effective arm. After having lost leads in the previous three Sunday Southeastern Conference games, UK (22-14, 5-10 SEC) grabbed a 6-5 win against No. 7 Florida (25-10, 10-5 SEC) on Sunday. “We like winning on Sunday,” junior second baseman Chris Bisson said. “We would like to win on Friday and Saturday, too, but we’ll take it. And we beat Florida. We can beat anybody.” With Alex Meyer, UK’s usual Sunday starter, out with mononucleosis, the Cats turned to freshman pitcher Walter Wijas on the mound. He entered the game as a question mark, having pitched only 8.2 innings in relief on the year and no more than two innings in a game. “It was kind of like old times,” said Wijas, who was a starter in high school. “I was just throwing to the

glove and throwing as hard as I can.” But Wijas came out strong, mixing up his pitches and painting the corners. He retired the first 10 batters he faced. “My fastball was moving a lot,” Wijas said. “It has some good action and was down in the zone, getting ground balls. It was kind of surprising, but I fell into a little groove.” Bisson acknowledged the importance of someone stepping up in the absence of Meyer. “For us not to have (Meyer) we could have easily thrown in the towel and said ‘This isn’t going to be good,’ ” Bisson said. “Walt said, ‘No, I’m going to carry the team for a couple innings.’ To get that from a freshman, if you look at the score, that’s a pretty good job.” While Wijas was sending Gator after Gator back to the dugout, UK was sending Cat after Cat across the plate. UK tagged Florida starter Anthony DeSclafani for eight hits and six runs in the first three innings, giving Wijas a comfortable cushion. “Playing against Florida, a

freshman, anyone could have expected him to just say, I’m a little nervous,” said Bisson, who helped produce two of the early runs. “For us to get him some insurance, get him the confidence, it was incredible, and Walt did a great job.” Florida threatened throughout the rest of the game, twice loading the bases but failing to score more than one run in either situation. The second time Florida loaded the bases, junior pitcher Nick Kennedy induced a ground ball to escape the jam. “That’s why you win the game, the ability to drive in runs in that situation or the ability to get out of it,” UK head coach Gary Henderson said. “We’re talking about coming in and getting the ground ball double play or get the punchout, whatever the situation may be, those are the things that determine whether you win or lose.” That was especially true in this game, as UK’s offense shut down after those first three innings as Florida started climbing back, posting a run in the fourth, sixth and

Suddenly only down three, Florida put a scare into UK in the ninth inning with a two-run home run by Josh Adams that closed the lead to one. But Matt Little escaped the potential comeback to pick up

his sixth save of the year. “The fact that it’s a one-run win is big,” Henderson said. “Not just a win on Sunday but to win a close one in the league is a big deal… I suspect the kids feel good about that.”


ROTC Continued from page 1 based on their ability to read a terrain map and follow it without any light to guide their way. They slept outside in the rain while on patrol as the other cadets slept soundly in barracks. On Saturday the cadets had to perform as a team by executing various paintball missions called lanes. They took their cooperative and leadership skills to the next level by mixing in with cadets from the University of Louisville. “It was mission after mission after mission,” said MS 3 Mary Awoniyi. “We had to eat on the fly, and when you were tired you had to suck it up because you knew your leadership would need you to be really motivated so you could get your mission done. It was tough to keep a smile on your face and just keep going.”

MS 3 Cadet Paige Houts waits with her platoon to execute one of their tactical missions on Saturday afternoon. For each mission a platoon leader is selected and the cadets are evaluated on their leadership and ability to take instructions. MS 3 Dakota Lawler shared Awoniyi’s sentiments about the hardships of the missions. “This has been very difficult but the training we receive here is priceless and has prepared us for this summer at LDAC,” Lawler said. Lt. Colonel Cummins of the UK ROTC said the weekend was a great way to gauge

the cadet’s education thus far in their careers. “This really forces them to do critical thinking and it is a great replica of what they will soon see as young leaders in the Army,” Cummins said. After three days living outdoors, strangers became comrades and painfully constructive criticism became

A cadence echoes across

the hills on Sunday, falling in time with the steps of the tired cadets making their way back to the barracks to clean up and head out. Smiles and

laughs appear where stress lines fell around their eyes just hours before as they head back to fall in step with their fellow Cats.

Charity game makes first splash on campus By Brandon Goodwin

While planes and sparks flew overhead in Louisville, kick balls launched into lower orbit and bodies slipped and slid down the third and home baseline for the first annual Splash Ball tournament at UK on Saturday. The Phi Sigma Kappa fraternity and Chi Omega sorority worked together to organize Splash Ball 2010, a philanthropy event that mixes the rules of kick ball with a Slip ‘N Slide between third and home base. The idea behind Splash Ball originated last semester with integrated strategic communications senior Justin Linne, a member of Phi Sigma Kappa and an employee of the Kentucky Kernel. Linne transferred to UK from South Carolina in the spring of 2008, where a similar event, called the Phi Sigma Kappa Sorority Slam, took place. Usually there were seven teams that participated in the Sorority Slam, Linne said, but there was not a Slip ‘N Slide incorporated into the game and participation was only open to sororities. Splash Ball is open to any co-ed team wanting to participate.

“Having been on two campuses, I’ve seen that the more creative and interactive the philanthropy, the more successful the philanthropy will be.” Linne said. “That’s why Splash Ball will be so fun, even to watch.” Two teams were present for the UK game. The Alpha Omicron Pi sorority and the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity joined forces to take on the Delta Delta Delta sorority and the Sigma Nu fraternity. Alpha Omicron Pi and Lambda Chi came out as the first Splash Ball tournament champions. “Ideally we wanted more teams to participate,” said architecture freshman and Phi Sigma Kappa member Philip Marchetti. “But people recognized that it was the first year and weren’t sure about it.” Part of the reason for the low participation was due to cool weather and Thunder Over Louisville occurring the same day, Marchetti said, but it was also low because the InterGreek Programming Assembly did not sponPHOTO BY ALLIE GARZA | STAFF sor the event. Splash Ball 2010 participants watch as marketing sophomore and Delta Delta Delta sorority member Jill “Everyone had a really good time,” Linne Green attempts to score a point for her team and slide into home base. said. “I think the teams who didn’t show up will regret it when they hear how much fun it was.” Splash Ball raised $350 for Phi Sigma Kappa’s philanthropy, Special Olympics of Kentucky.
