Possibly as part of what experts in the entomology community are describing as a regional epidemic, bed bugs were discovered on campus for the second time in a week Friday in the W. T. Young Library. “I was in the library using the computers on the second floor around 3 p.m. or so, when a library employee began asking patrons to finish their business on some of the computers,” UK graduate and Lexington resident Brad Vien said. Vien said no explanation was given as to why the library employee asked them to leave, but he said some workers began to rope off areas with yellow caution tape. “I didn’t think much of it until a little later when I saw an exter-

minator with OPC Pest Control inspecting all of the furniture around the computers,” he said. UK spokeswoman Kathy Johnson confirmed, in an email to the Kernel Tuesday, that bed bugs had been found in the library. She said that three bed bugs — “two dead and one live” were found in a “single computer kiosk.” “One dead bug was sent to the Student Center for identification on Friday while OPC was treating there,” Johnson said. “An OPC official went over to the library right away to determine the situation.” Vien returned to the library on Saturday to find the public section of computers on the second floor still blocked off.

Johnson said the OPC official found no other bed bugs in the immediate area and labeled the bugs found there as “drop-off” bugs, meaning they had probably been brought there from another location on a person’s backpack or clothing, as opposed to from a colony or infestation within the library. This week, OPC will be treating the area in the library were the three bed bugs were found, which is located on the first floor along the wall next to the Rose Street entrance. OPC also will focus on study spots and other areas where people congregate. Since it is a public terminal, library staff have closed the public terminals on the second floor as

well, where Vien was completing work on Friday, Johnson said. The areas will reopen after appropriate treatment and further inspection shows no live bugs are present. “We’re not planning on using a heat treatment in the library because we just had a sighting instead of the need to do a heat treatment,” OPC President Donnie Blake said. A heat treatment was used on Friday to eradicate the bed bugs found in the Student Center. “Anytime you have a public building you have the opportunity for introduction,” Blake said. “The key is if you get an introduction or sighting, you immediately do an investigation.” Blake said bed bugs have been See BED BUGS on page 2

Student leaders push lobbying in Frankfort Wildcat Interest Group urges a connect with politics By Austin Ryan

For Henry Clay, the way to change the world was to become a leader of the Whig Party. For UK’s new student government leaders, the way lies in WIG. The Wildcat Interest Group, or WIG, was created this summer by Student Government President Micah Fielden and Vice President Nikki Hurt, who traveled last month to Frankfort to visit with the secretary of state and the governor’s executive assistant. WIG’s goals are to form relationships with lawmakers, to mobilize students across the state to promote a “prohigher education outlook” in Frankfort and to provide stu-

dents with government internship opportunities, including ones in Washington, D.C., Fielden said. “From local to state and national levels, we must be representing students and be champions for higher education,” said Fielden, who, as SG president, also serves on the UK Board of Trustees. One goal for the lobbying efforts is to bolster support for the Governor’s Scholars Program, which both Fielden and Hurt attended as Lexington high school students, as well as for the Governor’s School for the Arts. “Funding for GSP/GSA is essential as it helps keep some of our best students in the state,” Fielden said. “By providing competitive scholarships, students that could

easily go to other colleges in the nation will stay in Kentucky. This helps raise the academic standards within the state.” Hurt said WIG’s director, Matt Doane, is working with the Career Center and various offices on campus to create government internships. Doane said he is working on a “Wildcats in Washington” program to help students find internships and housing. “Wildcats in Washington will make the entire process a little less overwhelming and hopefully establish our fellow students in D.C. to become great ambassadors for our state and university,” Doane said. Successful internships are ways that “students can di-


rectly show their support for community engagement and work toward their career goals at the same time,” Hurt said. Students can get involved this fall by applying on the Student Government website (, and they will be encouraged to contact elected officials with letter drives and phone calls, Fielden said. He said that just eight letters written to legislators about the same issue will make them feel that there is a problem that needs to be solved. He said to imagine what 150,000 letters could do. “The long-term goal is to use the Board of Student Body Presidents to help spread ‘WIG’ programs throughout all institutions of higher learning in the state,”

Fielden said, referring to a group of student government presidents at Kentucky colleges. “In this way we can mo-

bilize our peers, the 100,000plus people in higher education in the commonwealth that need to be politically active and engaged.”

BED BUGS Continued from page 1 a common occurrence in recent years. Prior to 2003, Blake only remembers treating one bed bug case. Now, he says he and his crew are dealing with hundreds of new cases. “Unfortunately bed bugs have become a certain product of the social realm today, and this is a common occurrence in public buildings,” Blake said. “It’s a matter of how you handle it and … I’ve never seen a group of folks that are so diligent in trying to make sure everything is taken care of than the folks down at UK.“ Some students in the library on Wednesday expressed concern about the bed bug sighting there. “I don’t live on campus so it’s not mandatory for me to come to the library,” business management transfer Ricky Hall said. “The idea they’re around is very concerning.” Others didn’t seem too concerned. “I didn’t know about it when I came in today,” said Alessandra Wayne, a family science senior. “It makes me feel weird, but I have to get my work done.” Blake said that while people are nervous about the breakout of bed bugs on campus, UK shouldn’t be viewed as a university with a hygiene issue. “There are no preventative tools for bed bugs,” he said, adding that the success rate for getting rid of them is in the upper 90th percentile.

To avoid bed bugs ... —When buying used clothing at a yard sale or other places, launder clothing before wearing or bringing it home. —Be very, very careful about used furniture. You should know the source. Inspect it for bed bugs and dark spots, which can be leftover feces, and indicate their presence. —When traveling, make sure you inspect your mattress and box springs. Never throw your suitcase on the bed upon arrival at a hotel or motel. Always place it on the suitcase carrier. —Notify landlords or appropriate officials immediately when a bed bug is found. INFORMATION FROM DONNIE BLAKE, OPC PEST CONTROL

“It has nothing to do with housekeeping … it’s all about awareness.” Blake said bed bug cases have nothing to do with how clean a person or facility is because the bugs are attracted to humans, which they feed off of for their “blood meals.” He has been working closely with one of the top bed bug experts in the country, Michael Potter, an entomology professor at UK, to eradicate the pests. Blake said he hopes he and Potter can create awareness in the community about this issue that has grown massively in the past seven years. Johnson said a follow-up inspection in the Student Center Friday found no live bugs or larvae in treated areas. OPC is currently inspecting the rest of the Student Center, she said. A heat treatment was used in the Student Center, which raises the temperature of the area to 135 degrees. According to OPC employee Justin Sells, this kill the bugs, and

people can return to the area when it cools down, after about two hours. Blake said, however, that a lot of the times, the area will remain PHOTO BY JOY PRIEST | STAFF closed for further inspection. UK’s Physical Plant Divi- Public access areas in the library are temporarily closed as OPC continues inspections. sion custodial staff members are being trained to recognize bed bugs and evidence of their presence, Johnson said. Staff members are also being trained in procedures for reporting bed bug sightings. The areas in the Student Center and Young Library will be reopened “after treatment and further inspection shows no live bugs are present,” Johnson said. Bed bugs have not been found anywhere else on campus at this time. Johnson said after last week's incidents and realizing every location on campus could be at risk, UK has recognized a need to extend its contract with OPC. What was initially a contract through housing will now be extended to include all of campus. UK and OPC are currently in negotiations.

‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’ delightful “You’re the perfect combination of sexy and cute” is the invincible pickup line for Ryan Gosling’s ladykiller character in “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” That fits the movie’s delightfully contradictory qualities, too. It’s romantic, touching, a little risque and screwball, yet reassuringly down-to-earth. At the center of things is bland, pleasant Cal, the human equivalent of Muzak (Steve Carell, playing it straight and never better). Over a dull, date-night dinner, his wife of 30 years, Emily (Julianne Moore), announces that she’s having an affair and demands a divorce. Cal, shellshocked, steps out of their moving car on the way home, landing hard on the rocky road of midlife singlehood. Soothing his bruises with meat-market vodka-and-cranberry, Cal wins the sympathetic attention of pickup king Jacob (Gosling). He teasingly tutors the 50-year-old near-virgin in the ways of courtship circa 2011. Yet this is no mismatched-buddies bro comedy. Dan Fogelman (writer of the ingeniously funny cartoons “Bolt” and “Tangled”) adds appeal to the premise through multigenerational complications. The movie includes several whammies guaranteed to leave your jaw on the floor. The story expands to include Emily’s midlife crisis and her halfhearted romance with an accountant colleague (Kevin Bacon) who promises to become a duplicate copy of the sweet, bland bore she has just fled. Enchantingly saucy fledgling lawyer Hannah (the alwaysexemplary Emma Stone) accompanies a friend to the pickup bar, becoming the only woman to resist Jacob’s precision-honed come-ons, and thus the one who captures his playboy heart.

Old pro Marisa Tomei makes a big mark in a brief role as Cal’s overenthusiastic first hookup. Young Jonah Bobo gives an attractive, unforced turn as the divorcing couple’s lovesick 13-yearold, and as his wallflower baby sitter, Minneapolis native Analeigh Tipton delivers a performance that is a sustained feat of magic. Unless I miss my guess, this huge-eyed, coltish beauty will be a very big thing in short order. The film emphasizes character and emotional values over jokes for their own sake. What makes the movie so interesting are the small incidents—offhand exchanges where ironic banter contains the odd lance of stinging truth, little moments of life observed in telling and persuasive detail. Every significant character in the film is forging a new life in a new world, where the old certainties and simplicities and optimism about happily-ever-after are outdated, a dilemma presented with amusement and chagrin. The movie is at its best when the cast is trying to shinny up the greased pole of romantic frustration. The conventionally sentimental and warmhearted ending feels misjudged, a forgivable flaw in a work full of carefully observed life. As the woebegone Mr. Average, Carell has a wonderful way of scrunching up his face into a smile of agony, while Gosling shows a sly knack for comedy as the Top Gun of the singles scene. The film is funny throughout but it has something better, a kind of rambunctious authenticity that quietly infiltrates your heart. You leave the film with the feeling of having made four or five interesting new friends.

off on travel, romance or spending. Consider the options, and make your move. Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is an 8 — A secret possibility beckons.

Learning lessons the ‘Captain America’ comes off as hard way while abroad propaganda, not good filmmaking The French are rude and nasty. How many times have you heard this? Probably a couple dozen. Well, France was the country in which I began my 22country trek this week. After my stint as a Kernel editor, I decided to take a very long trip. (You would, MARTHA too. It’s exhausting. All features GROPPO press releases and Kernel complaints can be columnist forwarded to the new features editor, Joy Priest. That’s J-O-Y P-R-I-E-S-T.) This summer, I’m traveling through Europe, and I will circumnavigate the globe in the fall. But back to this nasty Frenchmen business. I’ve decided I don’t agree with the rumors, but it took me a while to get to that point ... For being the City of Love, Paris didn’t show me much of it. It rained the entire time, I was fined 40 euros for not writing the date on my train pass in pen, had to reserve a seat on an otherwise empty train for another 36 euros, and then had to pay 20 euros to leave the country since Francois, the dashing train agent, failed to tell me the train he advised me to reserve goes through Belgium. These experiences left me begging Paris to stop hating on me. These bad experiences hindered my view of the French, perhaps, but in the midst of the annoyances, I learned that the City of Love is more about loving it. After four semesters of French courses at UK, I was pleased to see that I could actually understand

what was going on. I could order my duck confit and strawberry glace with confidence (the only meal I had something other than a baguette with various combinations of cheese or meat the entire time I was in France). The churches I visited, Notre Dame and Sainte Chapelle, left me breathless. I took in more art than I can fathom at the D’Orsay, Louvre and Pompadou. The ornate splendor of Versailles is unforgettable. Let’s face it: the French know how to impress. They have a flair for the ornate, delicate, an imposing that can only be grown with time — time that America hasn’t quite enough of to develop yet. I was surprised to learn that the Parisian metro doesn’t open till 5:30 a.m. — a time at which many of our American cities are already bustling with commuters. Walking to the train station to catch my 6 a.m. train to Berlin, I hardly saw a soul. Sayings abound about the French “working to live” while other people “live to work.” A bit harsh, perhaps, but “living to work” does partially summarize our American intensive approach to life at times. My bad experiences in France reminded me to take a deep breath, hum “Que sera sera” and say “C’est la vie” a little more often when I couldn’t control the things not going my way. But with beautiful art, baguettes, the Bastille and boutiques — what more can a girl really ask for? In the grand scheme of my big adventure, Paris did show me some love.

AMANDA WALLACE Contributing columnist

Captain America is a character that will have a hard time being anything other than propaganda. The hero is virginal, white-bread, corn-fed American values — a good-hearted boy from Brooklyn who doesn’t like bullies. That’s not inherently a bad thing. Just like Superman will always be a near-invincible alien and Spiderman a conduit for teenage issues, a man with a stars and stripes shield will always be, at the very least, patriotic. The downside for the new movie is that there is a time and place for hardcore nationalism, and I’m not sure that the silver screen in 2011 is that time and place. It isn’t that we’re less patriotic now than we were in the 1940s (when the movie is set), though I’m sure the case can be made. It’s simply a matter of creating interesting story lines. Propaganda films are not known for deep characters or intricate plot lines. Captain America is a comic whose first issue featured the title character socking Hitler in the jaw. Subtlety and character development have no place in Hitlerpunching — just ask Eli Roth’s “Bear Jew” in “Inglourious Basterds.” But that’s OK for Captain America. His character isn’t about

nuance or depth. It’s about Nazi beating and the good ol’ U S of A. Good filmmaking, however, isn’t necessarily. As a result, the movie is boring. Even if you haven’t seen it, you can probably guess the story — good fights evil, good gets the girl, and evil is “personally escorted to the gates of Hell,” in the words of “Captain America’s” Tommy Lee Jones. The superhero himself is a static character with little opportunity to grow. He is so good and so pure that there is never a question of him abusing his powers. The only course of action with a static character is to throw him or her into an unpredictable situation. Remove the superhero’s powers a la Superman. Transport them out of time or place. “Captain America” does none of those things. Instead, the audience is treated to two hours of Nazi killing montages without a chance for failure or growth. So, the audience never has a moment for true suspense either. The title guy is surrounded by a motley cast of characters only present briefly enough to be identified by their physical attributes — the Asian, the man with the ridiculous mustache, the Nazi doctor who looks like Truman Capote. You don’t get to know them, and you don’t feel bad when they disappear from the screen — either by death or by a screenwriter’s waning interest. Don’t get me wrong, I love comic book movies. I have seen

every movie released by Marvel studios since they took over the bulk of their comic properties. So far, the change has been a welcomed one. The Edward Norton “Hulk” movie made it easy to forget the Ang Lee travesty ever occurred, and “Iron Man” made people forget how much they hated comic book movies. Yet, of the independent Marvel releases, “Captain America” is probably the worst. There is little to no human interest, because it’s almost impossible to identify with the character after he is transformed into a super human. The first bit of the movie is by far the most interesting, but even then the purity of soul and spirit is just shy of unrealistic. Propaganda is meant to be watched by the already converted. It doesn’t have to be well shot or developed, because those watching are doing so to have their opinions and views validated. And for those people who believe in the infallibility of the U.S. government and the purity of the American dream, this movie probably would be interesting. For anyone who has been slightly disillusioned, it’s two hours of red, white and blue with a smattering of Nazi punching. However, if the end of the movie is any hint, I am excited to see the “Avengers” movie. I hope it will move Captain America from static propaganda to dynamic modern hero. Amanda is an English senior.

Pros, former UK players, to ball in Lexington By Aaron Smith

The UK pros vs. Dominican national team game isn’t official yet, but it’s about to be. “Today, we are meeting with the client,” said Carl Hall, Rupp Arena’s director of event management. “We are finalizing the last pieces of the contract.” The organization in charge of the event is ProCamps Worldwide. The group usually does athlete camps — including UK men’s basketball head coach John Caliparis Camp that featured Brandon Knight, DeAndre Liggins and Josh Harrellson — and it is their first exhibition game they are directing. “It’s a once-in-a-lifetime game,” said ProCamps’ Julie

Roberts, director of sales and media, of why the group decided to direct this game. Hall said the game has cleared “significant hurdles” to get to this point, including the relative inexperience of ProCamps and finding a date that fit a majority of the NBA player’s schedules, but didn’t anticipate any last-minute hangups. Hall said the game has cleared “significant hurdles” to get to this point, including the relative inexperience of ProCamps and finding a date that fit a majority of the NBA player’s schedules, but didn’t anticipate any last-minute hangups. Hall told the Kernel Wednesday that a final deal should be reached within hours. While early discussions about the game included the

possibility of having former Calipari-coached, non-UK players on the team, it is now expected to be all NBA players with direct UK connections. The first available time to get tickets for the game will be Thursday at 10 a.m. Eastern time. That time slot is only a pre-sale, however, and is not available to the general public. The game is listed to be played at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 15. Tickets range from $15 to $1,200, not including fees, according to Ticketmaster. The pre-sale is listed as running for 12 hours, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. After that, tickets will go on sale to the public Friday at 10 a.m. Check for an updated story.
