Horses pace each other Wednesday in preparation for fall racing. This year marks Keeneland Race Course’s 75th anniversary.
They’re off and running By Garrett Gabehart firstname.lastname@example.org
–This weekend kicks off Keeneland’s Fall Meet, marking the track’s 75th anniversary, with live racing beginning Friday and continuing on select days through Oct. 29. William Lear, a
Keeneland trustee and member of the Board of Directors, said Keeneland is “one great big outdoor party. This town prides itself on being the horse capital of the world, and Keeneland is the crown jewel of Lexington.” “Keeneland draws the best horses, jockeys and

Construction began on a child care center Aug. 15 that will provide services to UK faculty, staff and Lexington residents. The center will be next to the Arboretum off of Alumni Drive. Last November, in a Kentucky Medical Services Foundation Board meeting special session, a proposal for the creation of a Child Development Center on UK’s campus was approved. UK’s Board of Trustees approved the creation of the center on Dec. 7, 2010, to be privately funded. The child care center will offer daily services to 166 children in the Lexington area, said Stella Crutcher, executive director of the current Child Development Center of the Bluegrass. UK medical center spokeswoman Kristi Lopez said the exact breakdown of spots for children at the center has yet to be determined. See CHILD CARE on page 3

A document development team has started drafting a plan to improve communication skills on UK’s campus. The Quality Enhancement Plan is one of 12 requirements needed to attain reaffirmation of accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The development team, which is made up of faculty, staff and students, is responsible for devising and submitting the plan, which should be no more than 100 pages, by January 2013. Should SACS approve the plan, it will be fully implemented by fall 2013. Throughout the process, the team will receive feedback from students, faculty and staff, as well as SACS officials. Multimodal Communication Across the Curriculum has been selected as the topic of UK’s QEP. The topic “was chosen because it reflected a consensus that students can always benefit from more practice communicating,” said communication professor Amy Gaffney. “We don’t always communicate face-to-face. In applying for jobs and
having jobs, you have to communicate in a variety of ways.” Research shows that employers are not satisfied with the effectiveness of students’ communication skills upon graduation. “One in four employers think we’re doing a good job. That means three in four think were not,” QEP co-chair Deanna Sellnow said in an email to the Kernel. Once approved, the program will be led by a director and committee of experts from across campus. “This is absolutely a broad-based crosscampus endeavor. It is not something that one program or unit will administer,” Sellnow said. Not only will students have more resources available to help them improve their communication skills, but professors will work on enhancing their assignments to give students more opportunities to put their skills to use. “There are going to be resource centers across campus where any student can walk in and get help, and there will be similar places where faculty will be able to improve,” Gaffney said. “We want to give students the See QEP on page 2
The week 6 edge: S. Carolina Gamecocks’ defensive end, running back could prevent UK win By Ethan Levine email@example.com
Breaking down the key matchups in Saturday’s SEC showdown between UK and South Carolina.
The UK offensive line vs. South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney UK’s offensive struggles in 2011 have been well chronicled by those close to the program.
The Cats’ biggest concern on offense so far this year has been the offensive line. For the veteran group up front comprised of exclusively juniors and seniors, expectations were high heading into week one. But with five games now in the books, the line has suffered through injury problems and inconsistent play resulting in a soft running game and 21 sacks allowed, the third most in the nation. Now enter Jadeveon Clowney, a 6-foot-6, 254-pound

freak of nature who possesses a deadly combination of speed and strength on the defensive line. As the nation’s top high school football player a year ago, Clowney had offers to play at almost any school in the nation but decided to stay in his native South Carolina and play for head coach Steve Spurrier. In his first five career games, Clowney has recorded 18 tackles, with three tackles resulting in a loss, and four sacks. Edge: The edge in this matchup goes to Clowney, who has done what the UK offensive line has not this year; proven he can hold his
own and make plays in the SEC. With the ability to blow past a tackle on the outside or overpower a doubleteam inside the trenches, expect the Gamecocks to utilize Clowney in a number of different ways on the edge to take advantage of UK's lack

UK Athletics has revoked the Lexington Herald-Leader’s access to future interviews with a UK basketball player after a dispute over a reporter’s Q-and-A story. The story by reporter Jerry Tipton in Wednesday’s Herald-Leader contained a question different from the one Tipton asked in an interview with freshman Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. DeWayne Peevy, associate athletic director for media relations, said in a statement Thursday that the new question “sensationalizes the story and was unfair to Michael and his family.” The question was printed as follows in Wednesday’s Herald-Leader: “Your father died of multiple gunshot wounds when you were 2 years old. How did that affect you?” In a clarification added to the online story Wednesday, the Herald-Leader said the question asked in the interview with Kidd-Gilchrist was: “My father died when I was 2 years old. So that grabbed my attention. How did that affect you?“ Herald-Leader Editor and Vice President Peter Baniak said the newspaper clarified the wording in Thursday’s paper, too. But the newspaper did not issue an apology, which led UK Athletics to withhold future interviews with the player. Information about Kidd-Gilchrist’s father’s death has been published previously on news websites and blogs. An interview discussing the incident can be found on CoachCal.com, where a July 15 article said, “Michael was robbed of the chance to build a relationship with his father when the elder Michael Gilchrist was killed at the age of 30 from multiple gunshot wounds.” KiddGilchrist will be featured in an HBO documentary, “Prayer for a Perfect Season,” about his basketball talents and personal struggles, and it will include information about losing his father. UK’s statement said it has a duty to protect student athletes, “and we feel an apology from the Lexington Herald-Leader was necessary.” Billy Reed, a former Sports Illustrated writer and former Courier-Journal sports reporter, said he thinks the athletes are overprotected. “It is part of the learning process for these
UK student touches lives in Peru By Jill Novak firstname.lastname@example.org
One student trades in a summer by the pool for a red nose and the trip of a lifetime. When she graduated high school, Elizabeth Dale, an elementary education junior, didn’t ask for a new car or laptop. Instead, she traded them in for a plane ticket to Iquitos, Peru, to embark on a journey of self-discovery. After being inspired by the movie “Patch Adams,” starring Robin Williams, Dale wanted to get involved and learn how she could make a difference in the world. “I wanted the opportunity to expand my horizons and see other cultures and how they lived,” Dale said. After conducting research, she found her answer in The Belen Project. Each year, a group of volunteers from all over the world comes together with The Gesundheit! Institute to participate in the project. The project is “a U.S.-based nonprofit organization dedicated to health care education and reform, and also international service and development,” according to its website. To the people of Belen and the volunteers who participate, it is so much more. Unclean water, illness, community violence, lack of education and alcoholism are only a few of the severe problems citizens face in their everyday lives. With the collaboration of the Gesundheit! Institute and Bola Roja Clown Doctors, a Peruvian hospital clown group, the project provides citizens with the aid they need to solve current problems and the attitude and community participation necessary to tackle future problems. Clown volunteers interact with citizens as friends, not as patients. “I became fascinated with the notion of reSee PERU on page 2

EDGE Continued from page 1 of athleticism up front and its inability to contain aggressive defensive lines.
South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore vs. UK defenders Danny Trevathan and Winston Guy In his second year at running back for the Gamecocks, Marcus Lattimore is already
on pace to exceed the numbers he put up during his freshman year in 2010. So far this year, Lattimore has already rushed for 677 yards and nine touchdowns, causing UK head coach Joker Phillips to call out Lattimore as a potential Heisman Trophy candidate during his weekly press conference Monday. “One of the top teams in the league in rushing has a guy who is probably a Heisman candidate,” Phillips said.

“You guys would have to determine that. I think he definitely is, but that's for you guys to determine.” If UK wants to slow down the Gamecocks’ rushing attack and force the game into the hands of South Carolina’s inexperienced sophomore quarterback Connor Shaw, newly inserted into the starting lineup this week, the Cats will have to follow the lead of their senior leaders, linebacker Danny Trevathan and safety Winston Guy.

For those visiting Keeneland for the first time, here is a list of tips that will make your day at the races run smoothly: 1. Dress to impress — Nothing is worse than looking “Plain Jane” or “Joe Schmo” at Keeneland on race day. Now is the time to burst out that new sundress you’ve been saving for a special occasion. Gentleman, bring out the seersucker pants, Oxford button-downs and croquies. Top it off with an ostentatious hat, or a colorful bow tie, and you’ll fit right in.
vathan has recorded doubledigit tackles every week but one this season and will need to do it again with Lattimore on the field. Guy, who has played closer to the line of scrimmage in co-defensive coordinator Rick Minter’s defense, will also need to use his speed and athleticism to be a factor in stopping the run. Edge: The edge goes to Lattimore, but not by much. Lattimore posses all-world ability in the backfield, with a

3. Bring all-weather gear — Keeneland seems to bring out the best or worst in weather, so make sure you cover the alternatives. 4. Bring supply for the tailgate — Show up with some chicken salad, brushetta or pigs-in-a-blanket and you will most certainly be well received. And, if you are of age, it never hurts to bring some beer or bourbon as well. 5. Bring cash you plan to spend, and NO more — Spending money is an easy thing to do at Keeneland, made all that much easier by a few drinks. 6. Other necessities for a tailgate — It’s always a good idea to bring entertainment, like a good radio or a corn-hole set. Don’t forget to bring umbrellas and lawn chairs either.
opportunity to make the most of their assignments.” Another positive aspect of the QEP is its connection to UK Core, the university’s new general education program. “One of the design principles of our new UK Core is ‘vertical integration,’ which means that the oral, written and visual communication skills students are introduced to in the composition and communication courses are supposed to reappear in the majors,” Sellnow said.

LOS ANGELES — Hank Williams Jr. is no longer ready for some football. ESPN has severed its ties to the outspoken country singer just a few days after his remarks on a Fox News show in which he compared President Obama to Hitler. “We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams Jr.,” the network said in a statement. “We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of ‘Monday Night Football’ has always been about the games and that will continue.” Williams sang the rocking theme of the broadcast. The song was pulled from Mon-
combination of strength, lateral quickness, patience and explosiveness that will eventually have him playing on Sundays. UK’s defense, especially Trevathan and Guy, will have to find gaps, clog running lanes and make difficult tackles to make Lattimore's job harder. Look for Lattimore to rush for more than 100 yards and perhaps even score a touchdown, but the Cats' defense may be able to prevent him from putting up a gamechanging performance.
Overall Edge: The edge goes to South Carolina. The Gamecocks are UK's third ranked opponent in three weeks, and if the first two matchups are any indication, Phillips' team is not prepared to play at a competitive level against top competition. As things continue to spiral downward for UK, Spurrier will have his team refocused and ready to pounce on the Cats from start to finish.

Sellnow and her colleagues look forward to being a front runner in the transition from communication mediocrity to excellence amongst college students. “We at UK are trendsetters in attempting to prepare our students with a written, oral, and visual communication across the curriculum program that addresses flat print, face-to-face, and digital channels,” Sellnow said.

We, the majority, must now stand up and occupy BENJAMIN NORTON Contributing columnist
I have been speaking recently about the importance, nay, the necessity, of standing up and fighting (non-violently, of course) against injustice in the world. And, recently, a group has been doing exactly that. They call themselves Occupy Wall Street. So, today, I’m going to talk about the necessity of occupation. In their first press release, on July 13, protesters stated “Our nation, our species and our world are in crisis. The U.S. has an important role to play in the solution, but we can no longer afford to let corporate greed and corrupt politics set the policies of our nation. We, the people of the United States of America, considering the crisis at hand,
now reassert our sovereign control of our land.” This is exactly what they have done. Occupy Wall Street, and its myriad offshoots (Demonstrations are reportedly taking place in 147 cities, and OccupyTogether.org states that these are in 47 states), have, for some for almost three weeks now, peacefully occupied public property — in spite of vehement police backlash. People complain they don’t understand the demands of the protest. The truth is, this is because the demands vary; they are simply the desires of the people, of the majority. This is democracy at its finest, and the majority says, in the words of Adbusters, “It’s time for democracy not corporatocracy, we’re doomed without it.” This majority is united in its disdain for egregious government corruption, for the iron fist of Machiavellian corporations blatantly controlling politics in this nation, for the
richest 1 percent of Americans — our real, totalitarian political leaders and rulers. The thing is, this is a new kind of protest. It’s a paradigm shift; it’s a true watershed. Notice I said the Necessity of Occupation. The “necessity.” Not the “option”; not the “decision”; not the “luxury,” the “necessity.” These individuals are fighting for their rights; they are fighting to survive. They realize that there is no such thing as a “right.” Those in power want us to think otherwise, yet we don’t have “rights”; we have “privileges.” As George Carlin wryly quipped, “Rights aren’t rights if someone can take ‘em away. They’re privileges. That's all we’ve ever had in this country is a bill of temporary privileges; and if you read the news, even badly, you know the list gets shorter, and shorter, and shorter.” Critics claim that the Occupy Wall Street movement
is just a bunch of “hippies,” who need to go “find a job.” However, this itself is one of the problems. Many of the movement’s constituents have college degrees and years of experience, yet cannot find work. WeAreThe99Percent.tumblr.c om has plethoric of such stories, unified in their claims of “We are the 99 percent. We are getting kicked out of our homes. We are forced to choose between groceries and rent. We are denied quality medical care. We are suffering from environmental pollution. We are working long hours for little pay and no rights, if we're working at all. We are getting nothing while the other 1 percent is getting everything. We are the 99 percent.” In what has become an eminent, scenic photo, a protester’s sign reads “Lost my job, found an occupation.” In the words of the mighty Noam Chomsky, “At
this stage of history either one of two things is possible. Either the general population will take control of its own destiny and will concern itself with community interests, guided by values of solidarity, sympathy and concern for others, or alternatively there will be no destiny for anyone to control.” The “general population,” the 99 percent, is taking control of its destiny. And, according to Ezra Klein’s recent Washington Post article, “The ‘Occupy Wall Street’ Protests are escalating.” So, the question is, where will we occupy next? We’re already occupying New York, Los Angeles, Chicago; an occupation has even been going strong for a week right here in Lexington, where hundreds have come to speak out against injustice, lest they go unheard. When will we stop? When we occupy the world. Why is it that the world
belongs to 1 percent of the population? As the Tumblr states, “They are the 1 percent. They are the banks, the mortgage industry, the insurance industry. They are the important ones. They need help and get bailed out and are praised as job creators. We need help and get nothing and are called entitled. We live in a society made for them, not for us. It’s their world, not ours. If we’re lucky, they’ll let us work in it so long as we don’t question the extent of their charity. We are the 99 percent. We are everyone else. And we will no longer be silent. It’s time the 1 percent got to know us a little better.” The world is ours for the taking; we are the people; we are the majority; we are the 99 percent. Stand up and occupy.

ATHLETICS Continued from page 1 young men, and especially the ones who have the chance to go play in the NBA, (who) should know how to handle themselves in the public and how to handle the media,” he said. “I don’t think the UK sports information office is really teaching them the right kind of lessons about how to deal with the media.” In its clarification, the Herald-Leader said it had edited the question for space and to add context. Reed thinks UK’s action is aimed toward Tipton, rather than the questions he asked. “I think they do see Jerry as an enemy instead of the professional reporter that he is, and that is really unfortunate,” he said. UK’s statement said Kidd-Gilchrist “will no longer be available for interviews with the Herald Leader,” and Peevy told the Kernel this includes any Herald-Leader reporter and is not exclusive to Tipton. Some think, however, that the HeraldLeader might have edited the interview ineffectively. “There is a tension here between telling the story of his father’s death and reflecting the interview as it actually happened,” said Kelly McBride, a senior ethics, reporting and writing faculty member at the Poynter Institute. “I think, unfortunately, in trying to tell the story of this player’s father’s death, they chose an alternative that didn’t let the readers know that was not the question they asked.” She said this could have easily been fixed by using parenthesis, italics or an editor’s note to describe the situation, “so the reader knew that was not part of the question and they would have been able to uphold both values at the same time.” Peevy told the Kernel that UK Athletics would not comment further about the decision and stands by its statement. From a public relations perspective, this situation would have been handled
better by UK behind closed doors, said Stephen Dittmore, an assistant professor of recreation and sports management at the University of Arkansas. He said that if the Herald-Leader’s intent was to publish the interview verbatim, the newspaper might have been wrong in changing the question. But Dittmore said although he is geographically removed from the situation, his initial reaction is that UK “has made a bigger deal out of this story by issuing a media statement and issuing more retribution to a media organization rather than just handling it internally.” However, “if attention was already being made,” he said, “then UK needed to respond in a public forum.” Reed said UK drew attention to itself by issuing a response. “I think nobody would have noticed if they would not have made it an issue,” Reed said. “And in making it an issue, they are the ones who are showing unnecessary attention to the family and the young man.” The Kernel’s access to the same media day when Tipton conducted the interview with Kidd-Gilchrist was revoked in August after Kernel basketball writer Aaron Smith called two basketball players directly to confirm whether or not they were walkons. After the players confirmed they were on the team, Smith asked if he could question them further. Smith was to receive access to one-onone interviews Aug. 30, but lost that “reward” when he attempted to interview the two athletes, Peevy said at the time, which violated UK Athletics’ policy on interviewing student athletes. “They still are trying to punish the press,” Reed said, “and I think that is really a bad policy.” Reed said he “can’t recall another situation where an athletic department has gone out of its way to make mountains out of mole hills.” “It’s almost like they are declaring war on the media who cover them,” he said. Baniak, the Herald-Leader editor, said
in August that he recalled another time the newspaper had an access issue with UK Athletics officials when they held an invitation-only event and invited one specific Herald-Leader reporter over another. He said the newspaper declined to attend. Beyond clarifying Tipton’s question, Baniak declined to comment further on the current issue. “I think it’s always dangerous to assume why a news organization acted the way it did without asking the people involved,” McBride, the Poynter expert, said. She said she can’t pass judgment on the situation since she doesn’t know the paper’s side. Reed said UK Athletics is going out of its way to create problems that it doesn’t have to. Most readers who commented on the Herald-Leader’s website regarding the interview sided with UK. “I am absolutely dumbfounded at the wording of the questions and the entire tone of the interview,” wrote user Pccatsfan. “He is not some professional celebrity who may expect this type of interrogation. The Herald-Leader owes this young man an apology.” One reader said the setting was inappropriate to ask Kidd-Glichrist the questions. “Do you normally ask the families of the deceased what happened in the final moments? Especially if they spent them with the dying?” wrote user Jonathan Borders. “If Kidd-Gilchrist wants to talk about something like that, he can initiate it. It isn't something that any reporter should elicit, especially at this stage in his career.” Some readers, however, agreed with Tipton. “I thought it was a great interview,” wrote user knotonalog. “Tipton was letting him tell his story about the hardship of losing his father at age 2. And with the help of his uncle and the strength his mom gave, he has developed into a great person.”
CHILD CARE Continued from page 1 “However,” she said, “slots will be allocated for children of UK faculty and staff.” When the Board voted on the creation of the center, not all members were in favor. Staff representative Sheila Brothers was one of those members. Brothers, who is also a member of the University Senate Council, said she voted against the proposal because child care would be offered at market price, without a discount to UK staff, and that child care opportunities would not be offered to all of UK staff. The market rate child care would not be helpful to UK employees, she said. “Finding child care isn’t the problem; it’s finding affordable child care that’s a challenge,” she said. The current child care center provides care to 53 children, ages 13 months to 5 years, “and we see another 50 children for out-
patient and communitybased therapy,” Crutcher said. “In each of the preschool classrooms, 40 percent of the children have some type of special need.” The center has been providing child services since 1958 aiming to help children, with and without disabilities, reach their full potential, according to the center’s website. The center provides services that include speech, physical and occupation therapy for children with special needs. The also provide outpatient therapy services. “The new, larger center will allow us to offer quality preschool and early intervention programs to more children in the community and to expand services for children with disabilities,” Crutcher said. “University of Kentucky staff and families will have another option for quality, convenient child care, which is such a huge need for today’s working families.” The current estimated completion date for the center is July 27, 2012.
