Storms flood ATO house By Patrick Sullivan

For the second time in two years, students living in Greek housing had to evacuate their homes near finals week. On Saturday, the basement of the Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity house flooded with sewage, causing several students to move to temporary homes. Freshman Dan Byers, who lives on the second floor of the house, said the basement began to flood

during a period of heavy rain on Saturday afternoon. Byers said the Physical Plant Division responded on Saturday, but six to eight students living in the basement had to find a place to stay that night, and some residents not in the basement voluntarily left. Byers said everyone was able to find housing for the night. The Kernel could not reach the PPD for comment Sunday afternoon. Byers said he felt bad for

those living in the basement but was grateful to live on the second floor. Sophomore Alex Olivia, ATO’s house manager, said the PPD is handling the situation. “Everything is all right, and everyone is OK, and that’s all we’re worried about,” Olivia said. In December 2008 the Kappa Sigma Fraternity house was evacuated because of fire code violations.

Fraternity finds new home By Beth Brashears

A UK fraternity has found a new home. Delta Sigma Phi found out Wednesday the organization will move onto campus next year. This will be the first house the chapter has had at UK since the Theta Mu chapter was founded in 1996. The fraternity will move into the former house of Sig-

committee was formed to review the portfolios each group prepared. “The criteria we used in the evaluation were strength of membership, local alumni, national and international support, chapter financial strength, University of Kentucky affiliation and performance, and any other information they wanted to offer,” Crutcher said.

Event provides enjoyable fitness By Richard Symons

Cyclists from Lexington and other parts of Kentucky will ride together throughout May. They will take part in Bike Lexington, an annual monthlong celebration of cycling promoted in conjunction with National Bike Month each May. The Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, the Downtown Lexington Corporation, the YMCA of central Kentucky and a team of community volunteers organize Bike Lexington.

The groups help crosspromote more than 60 bikerelated events and bike rides throughout the community, event organizer Kenzie Gleason said. Bike Lexington offers UK students a wide variety of events ranging from casual rides, workshops, safety classes, commuter challenges, progressive dinners and advocacy meetings, Gleason said. Shane Tedder, an event organizer and UK’s sustainability officer, said Bike Lexington offers something for everyone. “Events range from competitive races to progressive dinners and bike-in movies,” Tedder said. By law, the bicycle is a vehicle, so cyclists need to ride predictably and obey all laws and traffic control devices, Tedder said. “Biking is a great way for students, faculty and staff to get to campus, and it is by far the best way to get around campus,” Tedder said. “It’s cleaner, healthier, cheaper and faster (around campus) than driving, and it can also be a lot of fun.” Gleason said one feature event is the 10-mile car-free fun ride on Monday, May 31, presented by Pedal Power Bike Shop. The ride starts at 11 a.m. and is followed by an afternoon of bike races on closed downtown streets. Spectators have events to look forward to as well, Gleason said. Bike Lexington will have its first mountain bike stunt performance, she said. The event will be at Cheapside Park, where there will be food, music and drinks. Gleason said Bike Lexington is a time for people to stop and appreciate all that biking provides for the city. “It's just a fun, relaxing and peaceful way to spend an afternoon,” she said. “It's great to see the downtown filled up with bicycles and helps you imagine what our city could be like if we all rode bikes a little more and drove a little less. The thing that amazes me each year is the sound of the 1,000 plus bicyclists taking off all at once.” Daily events can be found at


Traffic moves down the heavily-constructed South Limestone Street during a day of business. The construction is part of the $13 million streetscape project that has hindered foot and car traffic in the area, hurting some local businesses.

Life after Limestone Local businesses continue to survive as construction nears completion By Roy York and Tom Shearman

Concrete is not on the menu at Hanna’s on Lime, but a few customers have started to comment on owner Beth Hanna’s new item — a sidewalk. It has been a while since she has had one. For more than nine months, small businesses on South Limestone Street have fought to survive the $13 million streetscape project that has halted nearly all foot and vehicle traffic on Limestone. But as the project nears completion, business owners say they are just looking forward to seeing the work finished. “It’s been an interesting experience, from one day having 17, 000 cars drive by your business to the next day zero, and it’s kind of been a cumulative effect,” Hanna said. “I’m just hanging in there and hoping that when it gets done in the next six

weeks or so, that things will get back to normal.” The construction has disrupted foot and vehicle traffic on Limestone from the corner of Avenue of Champions to High Street, and some students find the situation almost hazardous. “If I want to cross the street, I have to walk all the way down the street to the crosswalk, which is sometimes unusable because there’s stuff in the way like machinery, so you’re almost in the way of cars that are passing by,” freshman Maison Morgan said. “I always feel like I’m going to get hit.” For some businesses, getting back to normal will mean climbing out of the red ink they have been drowning in for the past months. Peter Mashni, owner of Mashni Tailor Shop, said he lost 80 percent of his business since the construction startSee Limestone on page A4

UK honors two students for service to the community By Fink Densford


'Ghostbusters 3': A sequel to happen over Bill Murray's dead body? You could argue that Hollywood's sequel mania really began in earnest in 1989, when the box-office grosses started piling up for both "Ghostbusters 2" and "Lethal Weapon 2," proving that there was no good reason from the business end of the equation why you had to come up with an original idea for a blockbuster movie when you could just milk something that had already worked. "Lethal Weapon" went on to a long and happy sequel life. But Sony has never been able to mount another installment in the "Ghostbusters" franchise though you can't say it hasn't been for lack of trying. It feels as if every time I turn around, I read a story about how sequel efforts are moving ahead with another round of screenwriters at work, trying to figure out how to spin something off from the landmark 1984 comedy that ushered in an entire era of "Men in Black"-style comic special-effects films. If there's always one fly in the ointment, it's Bill Murray. Even though pretty much everyone else involved with the project seems to have a vested interest in making a "Ghostbusters 3," Murray, who is nothing if not an iconoclastic free spirit, keeps saying "no way, Jose." That doesn't mean that Sony couldn't just write him out of the movie, although some recent stories have argued that Murray, along with his fellow original stars, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, have veto power over any new project moving ahead. But everyone seems to want his blessing. Bless his heart, Murray seems to feel the same way about sequels that I do: that with rare exception (and yes, I'm

The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Award will honor two members of the UK community at the 143rd commencement ceremony on Saturday, May 8. Spanish and international studies senior Rebecca Linares and Lexingtonian Patrick Smith will receive the Sullivan award, which is given to one or two graduating seniors and a non-student Smith who have had a significant positive impact on their community through personal service. “Sullivan Award winners are very special people,” chairman of the Sullivan Awards committee Phil Greasley said. “Recipients are Linares those whose service and civic ethics are so well-developed that they don’t even see themselves as doing something noteworthy.” Linares spends much of her time tutoring refugees and volunteering with local English-as-a-Second-Language programs. She



willing to admit that "The Dark Knight" is a worthy exception), studio sequels are almost always more dutiful than inspired. In New York, promoting his new film, "Get Low," Murray laid it on the line. Asked if "Ghostbusters 3" was ever going to happen, he replied: "No, it's ridiculous. That's an absolutely that's just a horrible rumor. It's like illegitimate children in Antarctica, it's ridiculous .... Mind you, we only made two, and the first one was still the better one, so another one wouldn't seem to be any better. The studio wants to make it because they can re-create the franchise and put new Ghostbusters in it. That's what it's about." If you're laying odds, I'd say the odds of Murray giving his blessing to a new "Ghostbusters" sequel are about as good as the odds of Sandra Bullock getting back together with Jesse James. MCT

Bat Cats on the ropes entering final month of conference play By Aaron Smith

Life on the brink. That is what UK baseball faces as it enters the homestretch of the regular season. Look one way, and the golden promise of the Southeastern Conference tournament waits, where anything can happen. Look the other, and it’s a dull and bleak offseason, where nothing will happen. UK (24-20, 7-14 SEC) sits in tenth place in the conference, two spots behind the eighth and final spot that makes it into the postseason conference tournament. The Cats dropped a series to Tennessee (24-21, 8-13 SEC) this weekend. The two teams were tied for ninth place entering the weekend but Tennessee captured the position, dropping UK to tenth in the SEC. UK has three series remaining in the regular season. They play SEC frontrunner South Carolina (16-5 SEC) May 7 to 9, powerhouse Louisiana State (11-9 SEC) May 14

to 16 and last-place Georgia (3-16 SEC) May 20 to 22, the last weekend of the season. “We’re still fine,” second baseman Chris Bisson said. “We still got LSU, we got Georgia, and those are going to be important series for us to go out and do our best at.” The Georgia series could be beneficial for UK should the race for one of the last spots remain in reach, as the Cats match up favorably with the Bulldogs. Georgia ranks near the bottom of the SEC in nearly every major hitting and pitching statistic. Variable pitching is UK’s biggest concern as it enters the final stretch. Starter Alex Meyer is out with mononucleosis, although he should be able to return in time for one or two starts. The shaky pitching has put more pressure on the offense to consistently produce runs. “We’re going to have to get more consistent at the plate,” head coach Gary Henderson said. “We can’t have the on Friday, off Saturday, on

UK football looks to leave its mark in NFL By Ethan Levine

With the hype surrounding the upcoming NBA draft, many UK fans may have overlooked last weekend’s NFL draft, a draft in which three former Cats heard their name called by NFL franchises. Defensive lineman Corey Peters, defensive back Trevard Lindley and fullback John Conner each look to begin their professional career.



Defensive lineman Corey Peters was the first of three Cats to be chosen to play professionally next season during the NFL draft last week.

After losing a series to conference rival Tennessee this weekend, UK sits tenth in the SEC, behind Tennessee and Alabama.

all-pro defensive end John Abraham. One area scouts say Peters can improve is in his technique. If he shows he can progress his technique consistently from play to play, Peters has the ability to be a promising defender in the league.

Peters was chosen with the 83rd overall pick in the draft, the first UK player to go. At UK, Peters posted his best season in 2009, earning himself the Southeastern Conference Defensive Lineman of the Week award twice and second team All-SEC honors. Peters is likely to start his NFL career as a rotational lineman in the Falcons’ 4-3 defense, but shows promise with his above-average footwork, instincts and field awareness. He is also an adequate pass rusher with the ability to collapse the pocket up the middle. This power can benefit Atlanta’s pass rush from the outside, most notably from their

Trevard Lindley was chosen in the fourth round of the NFL draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. His primary strengths are quickness and agility.

Trevard Lindley, Cornerback, 5-foot-11/183 lbs, Fourth Round, Philadelphia Eagles Lindley was a standout cover corner at UK. Regarded as a potential All-American candidate entering his senior season, injuries kept him off the field for much of the year. As a result, he fell to the 105th overall pick in the NFL draft. Lindley excels in both man and zone coverage. He is quick and athletic and reacts exceptionally well in zone coverage. He has the ability to jump patterns in man coverage, which is something quarterbacks fear. While he is not a liability against the run, he has struggled with stopping the rush on the edges. The key, at least early in his career, will be durability. Lindley will likely start the season as Philadelphia’s nickel corner, but if he can show he is

John Conner was the final UK player selected in the NFL draft. He is a blocking fullback who excels at paving the way for running backs.

John Conner, Fullback, 5foot-11/246 lbs, Fifth Round, New York Jets When the Jets traded their playmaking running back Leon Washington for a 5th round pick, 139th overall, many fans watched and wondered what the Jets would do with the pick. They used it on Conner, who was regarded by many scouts as the best fullback in this year’s draft. Conner is an old-school fullback, who loves to play physically and block defenders for runners behind him. His one liability is catching passes out of the backfield, although he showed improvements in that area in his senior season. He will join the NFL’s No.1 rushing offense, including returning playmaker Shonn Green, who made a statement in last year’s playoffs, and the newly arrived, record-holding running back LaDanian Tomlinson. Conner will likely sit behind all-pro fullback Tony Richardson to begin his career.

Construction signs block off part of South Limestone at the Avenue of Champions. Prayash Baniya, waiter at Punjab II Indian Restaurant located on the street, said some employees are working without salaries, and the restaurant has tried to cut down on expenses.

LIMESTONE Continued from page A1 ed and said some weeks he would make as little as $20. Mashni said his business depends on foot traffic from downtown lawyers and other professionals, but the construction has turned even some of his most loyal clients away. “I’m ashamed to admit it, but I got so far behind on all my bills,” Mashni said. “You know I’m a grown man, and I hadn’t asked my dad for money in 10 years, but in this past year I had to ask him for money every month, and it was embarrassing for me, but I had no

choice.” Not all business owners have chosen to wait for things to return to normal. Past the piles of gravel and torn asphalt, the bulldozers and backhoes, and the dust and mud, Liza Hendley Betz and her Irish import shop, Failte Irish Imports, are dusting themselves off after relocating from Limestone. “It was so bad up there that it will take a little while before we get our feet in the ground,” Hendley Betz said. “We’ve got a lot of bills that we need to get paid off before I feel very comfortable.” Hendley Betz said her business was down 40 to 50 percent when she moved in March 2010, but she has seen great improvement with her new location be-

side McCarthy’s Irish Bar, located on South Upper Street. The diversity of business on the street has presented many obstacles for owners, and students too are looking forward to seeing the finished street. Morgan said as the construction is finished, it will probably bring students downtown, “but as it is right now, it just makes it harder to get downtown." Despite the continued procession of heavy machinery down Limestone, business owners believe things are looking up. Poured pavement and sidewalks checkered with blue and red brick are an indicator of things to come. “Two months from now … I’ll be the happiest business owner in Lexington,” Hanna said.

PTS offers students a way home UK Parking and Transportation Services has offered students rides to the airport for academic breaks, but now the department will offer some students rides all the way to their hometowns. Starting next semester, PTS will offer an alternative travel option for students and employees to numerous destinations at the start and end of Thanksgiving, winter semester and spring break, according to a PTS news release. The service will serve 29 cities on eight routes. PTS selected eight initial routes,

which were based on historical geographical information that the UK Admissions and Registrar’s Office provided, according to the news release. The destinations and stops include Clevelandnorthern Kentucky, Cincinnati, Dayton, Ohio and Columbus, Ohio; ChicagoLouisville and Indianapolis; Paducah, Ky.-Elizabethtown, Ky., Beaver Dam, Ky., and Madisonville, Ky.; Nashville, Tenn.-Bardstown, Ky., Elizabethtown, Ky., and Bowling Green, Ky.; Atlanta-London/Corbin, Ky., Knoxville,

Tenn., and Chattanooga, Tenn.; Whitesburg, Ky.-London/Corbin, Ky., Manchester, Ky., and Hazard, Ky.; Pikeville, Ky.-Stanton, Ky., Salyersville, Ky., and Prestonsburg, Ky.; and Charleston, W.Va.-Morehead, Ky., and Ashland, Ky. Those wishing to use the service can reserve a seat on one of the PTS Ride Home Express buses online, by telephone or in person. Prices range from $39 to $129, varying based on final destination. Tickets will be sold at the Student Center Ticket Office

Newton said. “Our alumni have helped us out immensely in the process to get the house, and we would not be where we are as a fraternity without their support. “All of our members have worked hard to build our reputation on campus, and it is paying off. I’m mostly excited for the younger guys who get to enjoy having a fraternity house for most of their college years.” Delta Sig member Drew Cloud is among the excited members who hope to live in the house next year. “Our fraternity has a bond, and we all care about each other, but having a house to hold meetings in, live together in and conduct all fraternity affairs in will make us even closer,” Cloud said. “I am ready to see where our chapter will go now.”

Golden Forks 2009-2010, and the losers are... As another finals week closes in, it’s time for the Kernel Editorial Board to lampoon all of the people on campus who have made this year interesting and then take absolutely no responsibility for what we’ve written. Feel free to send us letters to the editor. We will be sure to publish them with high priority when we return next semester. As always, we welcome comments on our website, (, where our faithful commenters and following of summer readers will argue them out with you. Without further adieu, the 2010 Golden Forks … The Double Down for a Dumb Decision Award goes to whoever thought inviting David Novak, chairman, president and CEO of Yum! Brands (one of the main people responsible for America’s and this state’s obesity problem) to speak at commencement was a good idea. We’d only go if they offer free food from Yum! Brands and then buy us gym memberships to burn off all the fat. The ‘Bout Damn Time Award goes to UK Police Chief Joe Monroe, who UK finally promoted to police chief the day before it put a campus-wide smoking ban into place. After three years of being pseudo-chief, Monroe was not given a news conference, just a press release. Don’t worry, Joe, we appreciate the work you’ve done, even if the UK administration doesn’t. The One More Year! Award goes to Ryan Smith and Kelsey Hayes, who were re-elected based on a whole lot of campaign promises, but just a few results. Don’t worry guys, we realize it’s just Student Government, as long as no resolutions are passed on napkins or ideas are fronted that are already laws on the books, you’re a success. The Used Car Salesman Award goes to UK men’s basketball coach John Calipari, who could sell you on paying cash for whatever clunker he’s promoting. If you need something (pizza, cars, ties, books), Calipari is the man. Disclaimer: We understand that a lot of Cal’s promotions are for good causes. Lose the pitchforks and laugh a little, UK fans. The We’re Just as Elite as You Are Award goes to the UK women’s basketball team for being less hyped, with a more looney basketball coach (come on, Matthew Mitchell used to host a cooking show!) but still reaching the Elite Eight. But let’s be real, we expect a title next year ladies, or else. The No Vacancy Award goes to Calipari and the entire UK Athletics Association for dodging a bullet by missing the Final Four. Hey, at least Cal won’t be the first coach to vacate three Final Fours! The Fetch Me the Thunderbird Award for all the people still smoking on campus. Don’t forget the leather jackets, convertibles and to memorize every song in Grease, you tough guys and gals. The Emergencies Only, Please Award goes to the UK Office of Emergency Management, for being located less than 100 yards away from two armed robberies on campus, but being closed at the time. The What the Hell? Award goes to Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Enough said. The Et tu, Diane Award goes to 3rd District councilwoman Diane Lawless for being the best city representative a student could ever have. Question: Can you at least arrange for free moving trucks for pushing us even further away from campus? The Protesters are so 1970s Award goes to the Board of Trustees, for pushing through an unpopular name for an unnecessary building while students, faculty and staff were literally yelling their opposition a couple feet away. Even better: when half of you ran into the other room instead of facing the opposition. We couldn’t be more proud of your executive decision-making. The I Want My Money! Award goes to President Lee Todd, who sent an e-mail detailing the third year of financial problems instead of facing students, faculty and staff while allowing a 6 percent tuition increase. Here’s a lofty idea for a man who had a pretty substantial bank account because of success before becoming UK’s president — forego your salary for a year and really find how out much this university is suffering. We probably wouldn’t experience a fourth year of pay freezes and tuition hikes then.

PTS inconsistencies bad for university While most people at UK blast the parking office for various reasons, I have in the past overlooked the accusations, attributing them to a number of explanations. However, I am appalled by the UK Parking and Transportation Services’ system, and the way they have handled a situation with me lately. When I went to pay for my parking permit online for the next school year, I was told I had three outstanding citations. Had I ever received written notification of such citations? No. Online, it stated that to

appeal a citation you must first pay for it. I did so, only to then be told by the same system too much time had passed for me to appeal the citations. This is unacceptable. One of the citations was supposedly issued in January 2009. Each year to pay for a permit, all outstanding citations must be paid. I paid for my permit for this year in May 2009 and did not have to pay for any outstanding citations. UK PTS you are a black eye on this university. Michael Frick secondary education junior

Mongiardo right choice for Kentucky On May 18, when the stress of finals has passed, both Democrats and Republicans will vote in their respective primaries to choose their party’s nominee for the 2010 U.S. Senate race. Considering his positions on important issues, his long record of achievement and the refreshing way he is running his camTIM paign, Lt. Gov. Dan PEARCE Mongiardo is the best Guest candidate to represent columnist Kentucky in the U.S. Senate. On issues related to the economy and job creation, Mongiardo has risen above the usual rhetoric (duh, everyone supports small business tax credits). He has outlined a plan taking advantage of Kentucky’s unique resources, dividing Kentucky’s economy into components such as health care and energy. Dr. Mongiardo, a UK graduate, lost a brother because of inadequate health care and since then has dedicated himself to fixing the health care system. He is a practicing surgeon in Eastern Kentucky, where he opened a free care clinic. Most importantly, Dr. Mongiardo supported the recent health care legislation as a good first step, but recognizes that real health care reform must pay for itself. He understands adding millions of people to a broken system will only

make problems worse, and a lot of work still exists. For years, he has been working to significantly reduce health care costs, not just talking about it. He is a national leader in advancing “e-health,” which digitizes patients’ medical records, saving billions of dollars a year and improving care. Dr. Mongiardo also seems to be the only candidate recognizing Kentucky’s potential role in a comprehensive national energy policy. Just like the Midwest is harnessing its wind and the Southwest is capturing its solar energy, Kentucky must take advantage of its natural resources. His plan would develop two cutting-edge industries right here in Kentucky: Coal-to-fuel and bio-fuel. First, building coal-to-fuel plants would provide fuel that burns cleaner than petroleum while creating thousands of jobs that can’t be shipped overseas. Second, Kentucky’s climate and land make it uniquely suitable to grow crops like miscanthus. When miscanthus is blended with coal for energy use, the mixture burns CO2 neutral. Currently, an economical substitute for coal does not exist, which is why it must be a part of the entire solution. Ultimately, Dr. Mongiardo is a moderate Democrat who takes controversial issues and searches for common ground. He bases his decisions on facts, not polls.

Dr. Mongiardo was the only statewide elected official to endorse Barack Obama for president in the primaries, and Obama even campaigned for Dr. Mongiardo in 2004. While the two have a positive ongoing relationship, this has not kept Dr. Mongiardo from standing up to the president on issues such as energy policy. Having interned for Dr. Mongiardo in the Lt. Gov.’s office and subsequently volunteering with his campaign, I have developed an enormous amount of respect for him. The way he interacts with people, makes decisions and runs a campaign all speak to his character. Between Dr. Mongiardo and his primary opponent, it is a classic battle of people v. money. Average Kentuckians v. special interests. It is no coincidence that Dr. Mongiardo has built the largest volunteer field organization in Kentucky’s history, while his opponent has instead focused on TV ads. Dr. Mongiardo loves this state and especially its people, and he has the capacity to move our state forward. Whether you’re a Democrat or Republican, I hope you’ll seriously consider supporting Dan Mongiardo. We need his insight, experience and dedication in Washington. Please contact me if you’d like to get involved. Otherwise, have a great summer. Tim Pearce is a business management and economics senior. E-mail

Prescription drug abuse is personal choice I am not a doctor. I haven’t taken a biology class since the 11th grade and never intend to again. But with that in mind, I still don’t have any problem supporting the use of TIM Adderall RILEY and other Kernel amphetacolumnist mines for purposes other than those they are explicitly prescribed. Are there drawbacks and risks? Obviously. Is it technically illegal? Of course. Should that stop the average person for using them? No. The reasons for its use don’t fall into the typical poor logic that can accompany such opinions. Just because statistics say a great deal of people are using the drug to aid their studying on our very campus doesn’t make it acceptable. It’s the old, “If everyone jumped off a bridge…” saying everyone heard growing up.

It’s not a good idea, because it leads to a pseudo Brave New World situation. The expansion of the use of medical study aids is not a slippery slope towards dystopia. No one advocating its use is saying people should regulate their entire life through the use of this or any other drug. Of course, on the other hand, we should immediately throw out the arguments against its use I acknowledged before, the most irrelevant of them being whether it’s legal or not. A mile-long list could be generated of things we now take for granted that used to be illegal. Moral decisionmaking should barely account for the wrongheadedness of law. The health risks are still undeniable though, just like almost every substance we put into our bodies. If you want to abuse ice cream, amphetamines or alcohol, then there are going to be serious problems; however, let’s not pretend a person using Adderall twice a semester to help them study is in any way likely to

die a horrible death or suffer terrible side effects. Let’s not even pretend this is anything like the use of performance-enhancing drugs in sports. The use of drugs to run faster and hit harder has nothing in common with the use of drugs to study all night and learn better. Do the drugs give an advantage over the straightedge student? Sure, but I’d personally rather have him working towards a cure for cancer than the other guy. This is no slippery slope toward more dangerous drugs either. People don’t use amphetamines to cram for a test, then think, “Maybe I should try heroin...” anymore than they would if they drank alcohol at a party. The nightmare scenarios are nothing but the dreams of the anti-drug movement. So why do I support its use? Cost-benefit analysis. I cannot claim any task at a university cannot be accomplished sans drugs, but some can certainly be accomplished faster and better with drugs. If one has two days to complete a task and he or she can either spend two

days working on it or he or she can drug-up, finish it in one and go have fun the second day (with only a slight added risk), what option should he or she choose? Every person is eventually going to die; therefore, it is prudent to minimize the time spent doing the things you won’t think about on your deathbed. Not to say that they are unimportant things, but if they can be done easier, do them easier. Now, am I telling everyone to run out and hit up their friends for pills? No. But if you want to, more power to you. It is not anyone’s responsibility to tell you what you can or cannot put in your body but your own. It’s not the police, your parents or some articulate politician’s right to decide what is OK and what is not. Do what you want to do with your life. If that includes popping a couple of pills so you can hammer out the latest in an endless string of papers, just be reasonable and have a good time. Tim Riley is an MBA graduate student. E-mail

Rupp Arena was filled with the cheers of thousands of fans, young and old, as Taylor Swift performed on Thursday, April 29 to a sold-out crowd during her Fearless 2010 tour. Swift opened up with “You Belong With Me” while the crowd sang along, echoing throughout the arena.

Country’s sweetheart doesn’t disappoint sold out Rupp Arena Calling Taylor Swift self-indulgent would be an understatement. Criticizing her self-indulgence would be a crime — because it works. Swift’s “Fearless” tour made its way to Rupp Arena Thursday evening, and the princess of country performed for a soldout Rupp Arena for almost two hours. The production looked MATT like a glorified high MURRAY school musical, with its Kernel columnist thematics ranging from a marching band/cheerleader set, to a Shakespeare homage. Every step by every performer on the stage, whether it be the band, the dancers or Swift herself, looked specifically planned. At times the rigid structure of the show led to an apparent lack of an organic presence, but the production kept the crowd engaged. Swift changed outfits more than she changed guitars, but her willingness to perform in every corner of the arena ensured there wasn’t a bad seat in the house. Swift performed on the main stage, from a set of steps in the middle of the crowd to a small stage in the back of the arena. The majority of the crowd looked to have been 15 or younger, and it led to deafening screaming and applause after every sentence Swift spoke. What was admirable was the sense that she still enjoys every

minute of it. After she performed her songs from the crowd, she made her way back to the stage, hugging every pre-teen who threw

Every step by every performer on stage, whether it be the band, the dancers or Swift herself, looked specifically planned. themselves at her along the way. Let’s not forget the music. Swift has a reputation of being a poor live vocalist, but Thursday night she showed what an asset time can be. Her voice was strong, not perfect by any means, but she was hitting her notes (no, she wasn’t lip-syncing). The set incorporated tastes of all kinds, including a hard-rock guitar solo during the midpoint of her show between two of her band mates, while she changed outfits, of course. She even fit in a ballroom dance to an orchestral arrangement of “Love Story.” The “Fearless” tour won’t alter the world of music, but all of the parents sagging their shoulders about having to take their kids to see their latest icon will be pleasantly surprised to see what Swift brings to the table.

BASEBALL Continued from page A3 Sunday stuff. If you’re going to win, you have to be consistent every game and give yourself the most opportunities you can.” The offensive inconsistency is reflected in the team’s contradictory performances. Since SEC play began, UK has had only two winning streaks of more than one game and has won only one series. Part of that problem is the bullpen’s inability to lock

down wins. Opponents have consistently climbed out of deficits to snag wins against the Cats’ corps of relievers. Plenty of examples exist. Vanderbilt climbed from seven runs down for a 9-8 walkoff win against UK. Arkansas hit a two-out, two-strike, walk-off grand slam in a 1716 heartbreaker defeat. Alabama scored 11 unanswered runs in an 11-9 UK loss. Auburn hit a two-out single that handed UK a 6-5 loss. Louisville scored four runs in the final inning to bury the Cats 10-9. “We’ve got to figure out our bullpen,” Henderson said. “We’ve got to get tougher in

the bullpen, there’s no question about it.” Those losses have been major contributors in putting UK on the tightrope that leads to Hoover, Ala., for the SEC postseason tournament. It’s the second year in a row the team has been in this situation. Last year, UK had to win against Florida in the last game of the season to make it and lost. This year, UK wants to write an alternate ending — one that ends on the right side of the brink. “We’re going to figure it out,” Bisson said. “We need to just keep on fighting.”
