UK football gets rid of student section assigned seating Students with football season tickets will now be able to choose where they sit for every game. Changes to the system have opened up the entire student section in the lower level to first-come, first-serve seating for every game, according to a UK news release. Students entering the lower level will be given a wristband, and once the lower-level seating fills up, students will be directed to upper-level seating. Student season ticket sales begin at 9 a.m. on July 18. Reserved seats will be held in Section 200 (located in the upper level at the end zone corner) for students who want to have a constant seating assignment. An online group seating process will occur in early August for students who want to purchase a reserved seat.

Drink machine of the future debuts By Becca Clemons

One of only two in the state, a Coca-Cola machine at Firehouse Subs dispenses more than 100 drink choices. A futuristic-looking box with one spout for dispensing carbonated beverages, the Coca-Cola Freestyle at Firehouse, located at 535 S. Upper St. near campus, is second only to the one at Moe’s Southwest Grill at Fayette Mall, which was installed about two weeks ago, Firehouse General Manager Ken Wright said. The first step involves dispensing ice. Then, the customer uses the machine’s touch screen to

choose a beverage, and then flavor of that beverage — such as Fanta Zero instead of regular Fanta. The whole process is run by a computer. The machine uses cartridges that are much smaller than the old system that consisted of a 60pound bag of syrup in a cardboard box. “The drink now in this machine is made fresh when you press the button,” Wright said. “You’ve got the freshest drink possible.” A constant line was formed in front of the machine during lunchtime Friday, Firehouse’s second day with the Freestyle in operation.

freshman Allie Kelbel and Coke Service Technician Mike Kimes stood by to assist customers with the foreign technology. Wright said it generally takes customers a minute to figure out how to use the machine, but he forsees that issue passing in a couple of weeks as more and more regular customers become accustomed to its easy-to-use format. “You get a veteran coming up for a refill, they’ve figured it out,” he said. Wright said in the future, Coca-Cola is looking to make a machine that allows customers to order a custom drink with their smartphones, such as a special mix of three beverages into one. For


now, customers can make customized drinks the same way they could with the old machines, just with more choices. And if the machine breaks down, Wright said a local CocaCola technician is on call at any time during the day. He said that some problems can be fixed from the Coke headquarters in Atlanta, since the machine is computer-run. Wright said that the machine especially caters to the younger generation, even though people of all ages can easily use it. He said a girl Thursday took a picture beside the machine to post on her Facebook.

Firehouse Franchisee Bob Conochalla said other Firehouse locations will use the machines, too. He said a franchise will open soon in Nicholasville, and another in September in Lexington. Both will carry the Freestyle. He said the machine is the future of cola-dispensing. Wright said that, even with so many choices, some customers stick to classic flavors, like regular Coke or Dr. Pepper. But, he said, “look at what you have here to choose from for next time.” Coca-Cola Service Technician Mike Kimes inspects a cartridge in the new Freestyle machine at Firehouse Subs Friday.

‘The Office’ has a new boss LOS ANGELES — NBC officially announced Wednesday that James Spader is the man who will fill void of the “world’s best boss” on “The Office.” Spader (“Boston Legal,” “The Practice”) joins the cast of the NBC comedy, reprising his role as new CEO Robert California of Sabre, the parent company of Dunder Mifflin. “James will reprise his role as Robert California, this uber-salesman that has a power to convince and manipulate, like a high-class weirdo Jedi warrior,” Paul Lieberstein, one of the series’ executive producers and a series regular, said in a statement. “He’ll have been hired over the summer as the new manager, but within hours, got himself promoted.

Kathy Bates played the company’s CEO last season and had a small presence on the show, but Spader’s character will have a more full-time role.

Friend’s passing a reminder to enjoy life Last Friday, I wrote this in my journal at a time when I didn’t yet truly know how much this would become more relevant and true in my life: “I read the Alchemist the other night. The theme is centered on the importance of the journey, following your FATIMAH dreams, and listening to SHALASH the Language of the Contributing World and the Language of the Soul. It spoke to columnist me powerfully, especially after I’ve had time to start uncovering layers and really listening to the voice inside that rises and falls (falling so quietly — almost mute at times) throughout the years. It led me to think deeply and question what I was truly passionate about. What is it exactly that gives me a jolt in the stomach and a burning feeling in my heart that I can't ignore? So many times I have come across this feeling, whether it is masked in compassion for others or rage at injustice. In those moments, you will find that there is a common thread, and in that lies your dream. A dream that has been sleeping in the unconscious, covered by excuses and distractions, waiting to be woken up by the soul it inhabits. Next to it is the fear of realizing your dream. Because the closer you are to it, an apprehension arises that it may not meet your expectations. Or perhaps — that it will defy all your expectations and you will grow and grow like the trees whose arms could reach out and touch the sky. And there’s the fear of what happens after you realize a dream. How

you will change, how others will change. Then I have to remember that life is continually expanding. When things aren't falling into place, they really are. I have to have courage to follow what I know to be true. At times it can be easy to let fear and defeat slowly chip away at my dream. Because it can be harder to get up and do things and easier to sit and do nothing about it, but be safe and comfortable ...” In light of losing a cousin and dear friend, Kawthar, more than a week ago last Friday, I am mulling over my words, thoughts, and feelings with a new perspective. Though I had written in sincerity, it’s not until that I can sit here now and realize just how fleeting life is, how precious. How when your chest tightens because you love, when you love (whether it be a person or a dream), that you should at the very least listen to it. There is much sorrow in loss. There is a grief that has no rules or bounds. But there is a peace from believing she is in a better place. As light is bound to fall into darkness, darkness is bound to rise into light. There are so many things about Kawthar that I love. And one was that she went after her dreams with every fiber of her being. It wasn’t always easy, but her resiliency, courage and confidence led her to continued success. In a time where fear can enter our hearts from the knowledge that each day is not a guarantee, it can be especially easy to further deny our inner voice and give up. On the other hand, that knowledge can be an inspiration to learn from Kawthar's spirit and honor her by fully living out our dreams. I know she is looking down and cheering for us, always believing the best of us, as she always did.

Television coverage convicted Casey Anthony, but not the jury assigned to her case By Ellen Gray MCT

If we didn’t know the difference between trial by jury and trial by television, the verdict in the Casey Anthony case cleared it up. Those people calling in Tuesday to HLN’s Nancy Grace after Anthony — the Orlando, Fla., woman Grace refers to as “Tot Mom” — was found not guilty of killing her 2-year-old daughter Caylee? Viewers, not jurors. Jurors vote. Viewers vent. Something to think about next time you get called for duty? The Anthony jury, whose members Tuesday were refusing to meet with reporters, aren’t required to explain why they chose not to convict Anthony of anything beyond lying to law enforcement. Those who disagree, and especially those who’ve turned this case into the Super Bowl of trash TV, can gab on forever or until, God forbid, the crowning of America’s next “tot mom” and it won’t mean a thing. Not to Casey Anthony and not to Caylee, whose sad death has been used to excuse the excesses of those eager to cash in on the emotions most of us feel when confronted by video of a beautiful child who’s died. I

don’t entirely mean HLN, whose coverage might have been expected to climax at 2:16 p.m. EDT Tuesday with the on-air explosion of Grace’s head. ABC, for instance, has milked this case relentlessly, with even the women of “The View” getting into the act. It’s been invested for a while, having incurred “licensing fees” for video and photos related to the case that included a $200,000 payment to Anthony herself before she was charged. It’s not that I’d expect networks to ignore Anthony’s story, especially given how much of prime-time “news” now consists of rehashing otherwise local murder mysteries. I do think, though, that it’s time that the people who talk about “justice for Caylee” stopped treating their viewers like jurors they’re trying to sway. And, yes, I’m looking at you, HLN. I get it that Grace, a former prosecutor who before Tuesday’s verdict was so keyed up she was shouting at her own colleagues on-air, is never going to be an impartial observer. But what’s up with hosts Mike Galanos and Jane Velez-Mitchell, whose belief in Anthony’s guilt seems similarly unshakable? “I can’t give any other explanation other than human

beings are not rational,” Velez-Mitchell said after Tuesday’s verdict, speculating that jurors had spent so much time facing Anthony, they couldn’t convict her. Really. “This jury did not know the story that we did,” Galanos said. Jurors, of course, weren’t supposed to know the story that HLN was telling, with its final-arguments scorecards, its “wows” during recaps of testimony by Casey’s mother, Cindy, its attempts at reading the defendant’s lips. This is precisely the reason juries in high-profile cases are often sequestered. “You cannot convict someone until they’ve had their day in court,” Anthony’s lawyer, Jose Baez, told reporters Tuesday after the verdict. It’s a quaint notion, rooted in the Sixth Amendment, and it applies even in cases in which the victim is a defenseless child, the defendant a less-than-ideal mother and a preponderance of cable-news anchors have already made up their minds. As justice systems go, it’s hardly perfect, and not being God or Nancy Grace I can’t tell you if it got it right with Casey Anthony. But given the choice between a jury and TV’s talking heads, I’ll take the jury every time.

Football Cats in all new blue By Alex Lovan

The UK football team will be using a lot of new things this year — they will be practicing on new practice fields, watching video in a new theater room on new high-definition video boards and changing in new locker rooms into the new uniforms. UK Athletics revealed new uniforms designed by Nike on Tuesday at the Lyric Theatre downtown. Cornerback Anthony Mosely and wide receiver Brian Adams made an entrance with dramatic music and lights to show them off. Mosely modeled the blue uniform while Adams wore the white. Nike Licensing Director Dee Scott explained the thought behind the design and said that the uniforms indicated “what happens when two brands come together.” There were three main inspirations for the uniform. The first was the collaboration and teamwork that gave UK its win last year against 10th-ranked South Carolina. Secondly, the uniforms wore by Kentucky’s 1950 national championship team. They had a classic design and sharp details that were brought back into the new uniforms. The third inspiration was Secretariat. Matching the checkered pattern on the UK men’s basketball jerseys, the shoulders of the football new jerseys featured the same reference to the famous horse and jockey. Having these similarities shows “ties in both elements of athletics,” Scott said. The new uniforms are 30 percent lighter and feature many of Nike’s newest technologies in sportswear. “Developed from the inside out,” Nike ProCombat wear is developed with speed in mind.


Cornerback Anthony Mosely models the uniform, with sleeves inspired by the horse Secretariat. Other features included Flywire, for neckband stabilization, zone ventilation and stretch, built-in padding, and more tailored hems and cuffs. The new uniforms embrace some Kentucky traditions and are anticipated to be “eye-catching” for new recruits. Joker Phillips explained that there were more important things to focus on last year during his first year as head coach, and that now “the time was right,” for the football team to get new uniforms in hopes that it will help them “rise” up as a program. (“Rise” is the football team’s theme for the upcoming season.)

Wide receiver Brian Adams, left, and cornerback Anthony Mosely wear the new football uniforms at the Lyric Theatre Thursday. Nike Licensing Director Dee Scott, center, said that the uniforms indicated “what happens when two brands come together.”
