Still SEC perfect UK Hoops holds off Florida at the end

Local concert honors Galbraith By Brooke Talbot

By Les Johns

A concert will honor Kentucky political figure Gatewood Galbraith Monday at Cosmic Charlie’s, where multiple bands will play. Galbraith died at age 64 from pneumonia, which was complicated by chronic emphysema, on Jan. 4. T h e bands performing are Oldman Lowdown Galbraith and Jesse Taylor. The music will be rock and blues reggae. Known for his five campaigns for governor, Galbraith also ran for agriculture commissioner, U.S. representative and attorney general. “Even though Mr. Galbraith never got elected, I really appreciate how persistent he was with his endeavors,” Maria Jennings, an international studies junior, said.

UK Hoops clinched a win over the Florida Gators Sunday at Memorial Coliseum with an early second-half run and clutch free-throw shooting. The No. 6 Cats moved to 7-0 in the SEC for the first time in program history with a 57-52 win and continue to hold possession of first place in the conference. “I’m sure that the further we progress and we remain in first place, I’m sure there will be people that will want to knock us off and even things up,” head coach Matthew Mitchell said. Junior A’dia Mathies, freshman Bria Goss and senior Keyla Snowden — all key players for the Cats — shot a combined 4-26 from the field Sunday afternoon in Memorial Coliseum, but the Cats survived a late rally. The Cats struggled early in the first half, falling behind by as much as seven with 8:39 to play, but tied up the contest 21-21 at the half. “When we didn’t have success early we just had some people that decided they weren’t going to try to figure it out,” Mitchell said. “We aren’t just going to win these games because we walk out on the court. You have to figure things out. Florida is a very good team and very well coached so it was a tough game today.” UK came out of halftime focused and went on a 17-2 run to seemingly put the Gators away. “For a couple minutes, we resembled what our team can look like,” Mitchell said. “That was the only time today that it happened.” The Cats’ run was partially fueled by a pair of threepoint buckets by sophomore Kastine Evans, the first connections from long range in the game for the Cats. “Well you have to give Kentucky credit for what they were able to do to us and the way they were able to create intensity when they came out of the locker room for the second half,” Florida head coach Amanda Butler said. The Gators had an answer of their own, putting together a 10-1 run starting with 5:04 left in the game to close an 11-point UK lead to two with 27 seconds to go. The Cats hit seven of eight free throws in the final seconds — Goss 2-2 and Snowden 5-6 — and got a timely steal from Mathies to put the game away.

“He knew what he wanted to accomplish and never gave up.” Another band, The Whitehall Bear, was scheduled to perform at the event but is unable to attend.

“We thought the world of Gatewood,” said Jeff Moore, a Whitehall Bear band member. “He was a super nice guy who always had Kentucky’s best interest at heart.” Voters never seemed to fully appreciate Galbraith, Moore said. UK students are attending the event, such as Chelsea Bentley, a merchandising, apparel and textiles senior. See GALBRAITH on page 2

UK, Florida battle in blood drive


UK sophomore Samarie Walker scored nine points and grabbed seven rebounds in UK’s 57-52 win over Florida on Sunday. The win improved the Cats to 7-0 in conference play for the first time. UK’s Samarie Walker continued to improve on the defensive end, deflecting many Gator interior passes and coming up with three steals. “You’re starting to see her become a Kentucky-level defender. That is what was missing,” Mitchell said. “I’m totally encouraged with her progression on the defensive end.” Walker scored nine points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked three shots. “I am working hard in practice. My teammates stay on me. My coaches stay on me,” Walker said. “I have been working really hard on my defense. I have been focusing on it more than any-

thing.” The Cats were led in scoring by Snowden with 11 points, hitting nine of her 12 free-throw attempts. Snowden struggled from the floor, hitting 1-9 from the field and 0-4 from behind the arc. Mathies contributed just two points for the Cats, shooting 1-7 from the field and 0-2 from the line. Mathies believes that other players on the team are able to pick up the pace when she has an off game. “I think we have a very balanced team,” Mathies said. “I don’t need to put up big numbers every night for us to win. We can win in a variety of ways. Samarie, Kastine, Keyla (all had) good nights. Having that depth

speaks to how well we work and how we are as a team.” The 57 points scored were a season-low for the Cats, who felt fortunate to come out with the victory. “I thought Florida really outplayed us today,” Mitchell said. “I thought they out-hustled us and I thought they were more physical.” The game was played in front of a crowd of 7,888, the eighth-largest Hoops crowd in Memorial Coliseum history. “Just to know that there’s a sellout crowd, like today, it gives us a lot more to play for,” Evans said. “I think the fan base helps us a lot, especially when plays get us up then it goes against the other team.”

UK selected for Clinton contest By Amelia Orwick

UK has been selected to compete in the Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action competition for the first time. The Clinton Global Initiative was established in 2005 by former President Bill Clinton. The initiative “focuses on local, national and global solutions to problems in education, poverty alleviation, public health, human rights and the environment,” Ben Smith, the UK Action Team leader, said in an email to the Kernel. He said traditionally, participating universities are private or Ivy league schools. Universities from across the nation are invited annually to develop their own humanitarian projects Proposals were submitted by each team on Jan. 17. The teams that pursue the most creative and beneficial projects are invited to present their work in Washington D.C. in the spring. One team is selected as the overall winner. UK’s Commitment to Ac-

tion team is comprised of 10 people, who were selected after submitting an essay and going through an application process. “Every member of the team is ambitious and determined to make a global impact in the future,” team member Luke McAnally said. The team’s focus is improving health and education conditions in the Appalachian region. Efforts will begin in Owsley County, Ky., one of the poorest counties in the state, Smith said. The area has high rates of preventable disease, due to factors such as the presence of carcinogens in the area’s drinking water and lack of available nutritious food, Smith said. The region is actually known as a “food desert,” which is an area within an industrialized nation that doesn’t have access to food markets, Smith said. The team is working with organizations such as Eastern Kentucky Pride and Grow Appalachia to improve the situation by doing things such as creating a community garSee CLINTON on page 2

“I think it’s a shame that such a great political figure is gone,” she said. “He seemed to be aware of the younger generation’s interests and took them into consideration. I will definitely go pay my respects Monday night.” Galbraith was a graduate of UK’s law school and worked as a criminal defense attorney. Even though he had unsuccessful campaigns for governor, he was a wellknown and iconic figure in Lexington. Some of his main focuses were gun rights, the legalization of marijuana and outlawing mountaintopremoval coal mining.

“It’s essentially a discussion about wanting to have an open network that is not under the control of private and/or government interests,” O’Dowd said. “That’s how it was created. Even though it’s been contributed to by all groups, it’s important to keep it open.” On Jan. 18, many websites – including Wikipedia and Google – protested the legislation by either blacking out or posting information about the bills. Tyler Leonhardt, a chemistry sophomore, said he heard about SOPA and PIPA on television and thinks there is enough protection. “I think if they pass this,

it will be too much censorship,” he said. “I think it will hurt the music industry,” he said. “It will eliminate smaller artists and it will only help the big commercial artists that can have success on iTunes.” Labunski said the recent debate about the bills is a reminder of people’s ability to reach others quickly and persuade them to take action through Internet resources. “Momentum for the bills has greatly slowed after the ‘blackout’ on Wednesday and other protests,” he said. “With several sponsors of the legislation in Congress already having second thoughts, it is unlikely that a bill will emerge in anything like its present form. Even if it did, President Obama might veto it.”

Game could take place of gym That hissing sound you hear? That’s your resolution to get in shape slowly seeping out of the room as the new year starts feeling familiar and the excitement of 2012’s first week gets pushed out of the way by life as usual. Gym memberships are expensive, finding time to go to the gym is a hassle, making a plan is hard, sticking to it harder. Seeing progress requires saintly patience, and on top of all that, exercise for exercise’s sake is often really boring. Thank goodness for, of all things, video games — and particularly this one. After a year of good-but-not-great fitness games releasing for Microsoft’s Kinect, “Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012” gets pretty much everything right en route to knocking every aforementioned excuse off the table. The polish is immediately apparent, too. In addition to not being a complete pain to navigate using Kinect (voice control would have been nice, but it proves unnecessary), “Evolved’s” main menu very cleanly lays out

Efforts will also be focused on improving education. Appalachian students often don’t go on to attend college, and sometimes fail to graduate high school. Even those with an interest in school can’t always enroll because they are dependent on family or lack the financial means, Smith said. Those that do attend college frequently drop out because they have trouble adjusting to a big city or the more difficult course load, Smith said. The team is working with existing resources to spread information about available education options. For example, KET provides a program that helps students get their GED. UK, Morehead University and Berea College also provide online courses for students who don’t want to leave Appalachia. Information about FAFSA and different types of scholarship and aid will also be provided. “We’re hoping to improve rates of education, and in doing so help the economy in

the area,” Smith said. Although the team hopes to do well enough to get the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C., they agree that the important thing is making a difference. “There are plenty of available resources. The problem is either people aren’t aware of them, or they don’t have the necessary tools to access them,” McAnally said. “We want to be the bridge that allows these good programs to reach the good peo-

ple that need them.” The team also wants to take this opportunity to make a name for their university, said Patrick Johnson, a team member who is also the Kernel’s assistant opinions editor. “This is an opportunity to make a true impact on a struggling region of the country,” he said, “and show the world that the student body at UK is progressive and aware of things going on in the world.”

Big Blue Nation needs a clean energy future As a youngster growing up in rural Kentucky, the UK basketball program was everything. My first memories involve watching basketball games with my father. I had the privilege of being a young boy during the late 1990s, and watching the great teams with Jamal Mashburn, Cameron Mills, Jeff Sheppard and Heshimu Evans. I remember very distinctly crying after PATRICK the Cats were beat in the 1999 Regional FiJOHNSON nal by Michigan State because I thought that UK was supposed to be in the National Kernel Championship game every season. The joy columnist of watching UK basketball is something that can be agreed upon throughout our great state. Regardless of sex, race, political affiliation or religious beliefs, a UK victory is cherished by all. It is forever engrained in our culture, and will continue to bring people together that would not have any reason otherwise to communicate. Some of the greatest friendships have been developed as a result of celebrating a good win, and the team brings great national and even international exposure to our state. I will bleed blue for the rest of my life, and my children and grandchildren will have no choice but to do the same. Because of this deep reverence for the university and its teams, I want UK to be the best in every area — both on and off the court. That’s why I, and many students on campus, have been urging the university to ramp up its investments in clean energy options that will mean cleaner air for Kentuckians and

make UK a leader in the SEC. Already many of our peer institutions, including Clemson and North Carolina, have committed to stop burning coal on campus because it poses real health threats to students and the surrounding communities. In Lexington, the university is doing great work investing in geothermal energy for our new dorms and ensuring they’re built with the top efficiency technologies to save energy and money. It’s time for UK to go all the way by ramping up their clean energy investments to include clean, healthy and renewable options like geothermal and solar energy for the entire campus that will move us off coal and make us a national champion in more than just basketball. The reality is that coal is not cheap. The negative health impacts from depending on coal including cancer, heart disease, lung disease and severe asthma attacks cost Americans $100 billion in health care costs and 13,000 lives annually. According to a 2009 study performed by Dr. Michael Hendryx, a professor at West Virginia University, the human cost of the Appalachian coal mining economy outweighs its economic benefits. This doesn’t account for the environmental destruction as a result of this industry, including thousands of miles of streams irrecoverably covered, hundreds of mountaintops blown off and species diversity that will be forever lost. Coal is horrible for this state and is holding us back from building a prosperous clean energy economy for the 21st century. Right now, clean energy jobs and businesses in Kentucky are growing at a faster rate than jobs overall. General state job growth was 3.6 percent last year, while renewable energy and efficiency jobs grew by 10 percent. This trend is expected to continue. Additionally, studies

show that with a greater mix of efficiency and renewable energy, over the next decade Kentuckians’ electric bills will stay the same or be even lower than they would otherwise. I am very proud of the UK students who are continuously demanding that our school take progressive measures to move off coal on campus toward clean energy solutions and cut ties with the dirty and irresponsible coal industry. In support of this movement, the Sierra Club sponsored the UK-Arkansas basketball game to bring awareness to the clean energy movement across the U.S. and show their support for UK basketball and the amazing students and fans on campus. As a generation, we have the responsibility to not leave our children and grandchildren with a world that is decimated by extractive industries, and have sustainable energy solutions in place. As a state, solar and geothermal are viable options virtually everywhere. The political will to help get these programs in place must happen, but the feasibility does exist. In mountainous regions of Appalachia, wind feasibility studies have also showed very promising results. The University of Kentucky has the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of these technologies, and I hope they listen to the student movement in future decisions. I commend the Sierra Club for supporting this cause, and showing that Big Blue Nation is supportive of the end of the reign of coal in this state. Make your current students, alumni and state proud. Let’s move toward a sustainable future. Go Big Blue. Patrick Johnson is a natural resources and environmental science senior and the Kernel’s assistant opinions editor. Email

Poetry competition should be a slam Event has coffeehouse theme, original student work By Jarrod Thacker

Aspiring bards at UK will have the opportunity to throw down the figurative gauntlet 7:30 p.m. on Monday, as the Cats Den hosts its first Poetry Slam of the semester. This unique event will feature a coffeehouse theme, where both poets and listeners will be treated to Starbucks coffee, pastries and

compete for prizes. “We’re using a casual coffeehouse vibe for people to get up and do their original works,” said Hannah Sloan, a Cats Den coordinator. “I think this would be a great way for poets to showcase their talents.” Alexis Gray, a Cats Den coordinator who presides over the Poetry Slam, believes this is a great opportunity for UK students to get

involved on campus. “Everybody says there’s nothing to do on campus,” Gray said. “This gives them the chance to do something on campus, and to do something creative, since it’s their own work.” Students wanting to take part in this event are encouraged to bring original material, but they are lenient on requirements for participation. The Association of College Unions International, which the UK Cats Den is a part of, defines a poetry slam as a “form of performance

poetry that occurs within a competitive poetry event.” The poets are scored based on their presentation on a 0.0-10.0 scale. While association rules dictate that accompaniments such as “props, costumes or

Students will be required to sign in before performing, but the winning presentation will also be eligible for prizes, to be judged by Gray and randomly selected audience members. While they do not know the particular prize in store just yet, “it’ll be something good,” Sloan said.

In the past, winners have received gift cards to services such as Starbucks or iTunes. American poet Walt Whitman once said, “to have great poets, there must be great audiences.” Sloan echoed this sentiment when speaking about the Poetry Slam. “Even if people don’t want to come and participate, maybe they’re holding on to their original works and don’t necessarily want to speak about it,” Sloan said. “They can certainly come and watch some of the amazing poets UK has to offer.”
