The long road back to the pool By Kyle Arensdort

Junior diver Greg Ferrucci entered the IU Natatorium on March 28, a place where seven years ago he experienced one of the most horrific accidents that could happen to a diver. As a sophomore at Hopewell High School in Huntersville N.C., Ferrucci was encouraged by his coach, Ted Hautau, to enter a qualifying meet to participate in the 2006 U.S. Open in Indianapolis. Ferrucci, 15, agreed, and as one of the youngest competitors in the competition, made the finals and took sixth-place in the 1-meter springboard. After getting mixed reviews on his first two dives of the 3-meter final, Ferrucci attempted a reverse 2 1/2 tuck for his third and final dive. “I really wanted to hit my third dive so I could get back on the board,” Ferrucci said. “I PHOTO BY TESSA LIGHTY | STAFF See FERRUCCI on page 2 UK junior diver Greg Ferrucci poses for a photo April 18.

Cram Jam a fun break from finals

UK greets provost finalists 3 candidates will field questions from campus community

SGA sponsors event Thursday By Dylan Russell

Just as the temperatures outside rise in time for summer, so do the levels of stress for UK students as finals week approaches. “The last week of classes can create a great deal of stress for a (UK) student,” said Ashley Campbell, UK

senior who serves as the deputy chief of campus issues. The Student Government Association will be hosting Cram Jam, designed for students to take a breather from the studying and stress of finals, from 58 p.m. on Thursday in Memorial Coliseum. “Our main objective for Cram Jam is to create a funfilled, yet relaxing environment for all students,” Campbell said. “The student body has a chance to un-

wind at Cram Jam.” Cram Jam will be providing free food, games, massages and T-shirts, and organizers will be giving away “three great prizes,” Campbell said. Campbell added that Cram Jam will have five different inflatables. There will be tours of the Joe Craft Center, UK’s basketball practice facility, as well as open basketball courts, with a chance to match up against student athletes who will be enjoying the Cram Jam festivities too, according to Campbell. “Students should attend Cram Jam to enjoy an environment of interaction with their fellow classmates,” Campbell said. Campbell said that this will be the last big campus event of the year, meaning it will be one of the last opportunities for graduating seniors to come together. “Along with the amazing prizes and activities, this is an amazing event for our fellow graduating seniors to enjoy their last campus event with faculty and friends,” Campbell said. Cram Jam is free to attend, and all UK students and faculty members are welcome.

Students educated on fossil fuel emissions Event raises awareness on Earth Day By Logan Brown

UK students participated in a nation-wide event to raise awareness of fossil fuel emissions on campus Monday in honor of Earth Day. The Take Back Earth Day event was sponsored by the UK Greenthumb Environmental Club, which is the largest environmental club on

campus. The event took place at over 700 campuses across the country, with the goal of educating students on the growing issue of fossil fuel emissions and a focus on the coal boilers near campus, said Caroline Engle, a natural resources and environmental science freshman. UK administrators said

that they are aware of the greenhouse emissions they produce. “The university constantly monitors our progress regarding greenhouse emissions,” said Bob Wiseman, vice president for facilities management. “We have launched significant efforts to reduce our electrical loads, and as a result, our emissions.” According to Wiseman, the university has undertaken

a $25 million conservation effort in the past several years, even hiring an engineer who specializes in the field. Fossil fuel emissions are not an issue that only campuses should worry about, Greenthumb members emphasized. It is also important that people realize that they can take small steps to reduce their own emissions. “There are lots of things you can do,” said Isabel See EARTH on page 2

UK baseball looking to stop losing skid After winless week, Cats head to WKU Tuesday By Nick Gray


Freshman outfielder Kyle Barrett hits a single to start off the fourth inning of UK’s game against Louisville at Cliff Hagan Stadium on April 16.

After a three-game sweep at the hands of South Carolina that extended its losing streak to six games, UK baseball travels in-state to face Western Kentucky Tuesday at 7 p.m. The Cats (24-15, 7-11 SEC) and Hilltoppers played March 18 at Cliff Hagan Stadium, with West-

UK freshman right-hander Kyle Cody (3-2, 6.21 ERA) will start against WKU junior righty Just Hageman (1-1, 6.46 ERA). Freshman Kyle Barrett

has led the Cats from the lead-off spot with a .352 average, including going 7for-12 against Louisville and South Carolina last week, but Barrett sat out Sunday’s game for undisclosed reasons.

Remaining fully clothed, Hautau dove into the water to rescue his sinking diver and “began to pray that he would be alright.” Ferrucci was raced to a nearby hospital where the doctors concluded that he had a concussion, some hemorrhaging and a skull fracture. After a three day hospital stay and a brief recovery period that included a spell of mononucleosis, Ferrucci was

back to the pool in his home state of North Carolina. However, his first post-injury practice did not go as planned, as he slipped off the board on his first dive, causing him to contemplate whether or not diving was really what he was supposed to be doing. Ferrucci began living a normal high school life until he graduated and enrolled in a cosmetology school. After working in a salon for six month and realizing he wasn’t yet ready to settle down, he decided to apply to be in a dive show on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship. When he saw that he needed a recommendation, Ferrucci made the phone call to his old dive coach that would change his life. “It was great to hear from him after so long,” Hautau said. “I was just trying to be funny and said, ‘Hey, why don’t you come dive for UK and get your school paid for and you won’t get sea sick?’” The next day, Ferrucci

called Hautau again, and after a very brief conversation was headed to Lexington on a scholarship. Ferrucci has had an illustrious career as a Cat and a very successful 2013 season which landed him in the NCAA Championships for the third straight year. This year’s NCAAs were different, however, as Ferrucci would be returning to the same pool where his injury had taken place seven years ago. Although he felt a little nervous as the thought of his accident began to creep into his mind, he knew what to do to relieve the gravity of the situation. On his first dive of the tournament, on the same 3meter board, Ferrucci attempted a reverse 2 ½ tuck — the same dive that failed seven years ago — and nailed it, receiving high marks from the judges and a spot in the finals. Ferrucci took fourth-place in the 3-meter final and added to that with two more fourth-

Khloe Kardashian canned from ‘The X Factor’ LOS ANGELES — Fox announced Monday that TV everywhere-man Mario Lopez will return as the host of “The X Factor.” But Khloe Kardashian will not. Lopez joined the other Fox singing competition show last season as host, alongside Kardashian. Despite being at ease in front of the cameras when they’re connected to the E! network, Kardashian couldn’t quite get comfortable in her role as host — her misgivings were recently chronicled in an episode of “Kourtney & Kim Take Miami.” “Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host ‘The X Factor,’” read a statement attributed to “X Factor” producers. “We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.” Lopez, though, apparently made the cut with “X Factor” producers — see, all that time spent hosting “Extra” at the Grove has paid off. “I’m looking forward to returning to ‘The X Factor’ team,” Lopez said in a statement.

Amazon premieres 14 TV pilots online Viewer feedback will determine which turn into full series By Dawn C. Chmielewski Los Angeles Times (MCT) Inc. is turning to its consumers to help decide which of the new television shows premiering Friday to add to its programming lineup, democratizing a process that was once reserved for a rarefied group of network executives. The online retailer will post 14 TV pilots — including a musical office comedy set in Manhattan, a live-action comedy about four U.S. senators who live together in Washington, D.C., and a show based on the cult film “Zombieland” — ask viewers to critique them. The feedback will help inform which pilots are developed into a full series. “We’re looking for distinctive shows that people get really attached to and love,” said Amazon Studios director Roy Price. “In the digital, on-demand world, you really have to have that passionate fan base, because there are no hammock shows, there’s no 8:30 show (to bring viewers). It’s important to reach out to customers on a large scale and see what they’re interested in.” Price describes Amazon Studios’ process as a hybrid that draws from elements of old and new media. It used the service’s rental and viewing history to identify the shows that resonate with its customers, and which new ones might hold the greatest appeal. The popularity of scripted dramas such as PBS’ pe-

riod drama “Downton Abbey” and HBO’s “Sex and the City” suggested some viewers are attracted to shows with depth, where the characters confront important life choices, Price said. Viewership of FX’s animated sitcom “Archer” and the stop-motion animation Cartoon Network series “Robot Chicken” hint at a clump of interest around another kind of program, Price said. Meanwhile, frequently watched children’s programs, including Nickelodeon’s “Dora the Explorer” and “Blue’s Clues,” suggest another opportunity. “You end up with a few areas you can look for ideas that seem to be compatible with those concepts,” Price said. Amazon received some 4,000 scripts through its website, and others through the more traditional avenue of Hollywood agents. It used a typical vetting process to narrow its choices, but also posted plot synopses to get customer feedback — a vetting process it will evaluate later, to see whether it accurately predicted hits. Because Amazon wasn’t looking to make its mark with a network-defining show, as rival Netflix did with its high-profile original series “House of Cards,” it also could afford to take risks, Price said. “If you’re betting on one show, it’s got to be right down the middle of the fairway,” Price said. “But if you’ve got 14, you can allow people to try new things.”


Women’s golf takes 5th at SECs Cats’ highest finish in 20 years; men’s team finishes 13th Freshman Sarah Harris led the UK women’s golf team to a tie for fifth place this weekend in the 2013 SEC Championship at the Greystone Golf and Country Club in Birmingham, Ala. Harris’ 1-over-par opening round was tied for the lowest of the day on Friday as she went on to finish the tournament in second-place at 9over-par. “I played really solid this week,” Harris said to UK Athletics. “I didn’t try to do anything special. I just managed the course really well. In the end, my scores were solid enough for a second place finish which was exciting.” This marked the best career finish for the Hermitage, Tenn., native who, before the

SEC Championship, had only one top-20 finish to her name. Harris’ first top-20 finish came at the Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational, where she came in 16th place in the first tournament of her UK career. Harris had familiar company in the top-10, as junior Liz Breed captured her second top-10 finish of the season and placed sixth with an 11-over-par 227 overall score. “I’m really excited about the outcome of this week,” Breed said. “I didn’t strike the ball very well so I’m really proud of a tied for (sixthplace).” Breed also commented on her team’s performance and was excited about their chances continuing into post-

BOSTON — The Justice Department on Monday publicly charged Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev with using a weapon of mass destruction. In unsealed court filings that shed new light on what investigators think happened before, during and after the lethal explosions on April 15, prosecutors charged Tsarnaev with one count of using and conspiring to use a WMD resulting in death. The 19-yearold ethnic Chechen, a naturalized U.S. citizen, also was charged with one count of malicious destruction of property by means of an explosive device resulting in death. If convicted on either federal charge, Tsarnaev faces the death penalty or life in prison. He also faces the possibility of state criminal charges, as well, in connection with the bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 200. Massachusetts has no death penalty. “Although our investigation is ongoing, today’s charges bring a successful end to a tragic week for the city of Boston, and our country,” Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a prepared statement.

In a ceremony Monday, the FBI turned Boylston Street — which had been considered a crime scene — back to the city. A bagpiper played as the flag that flew over the finish line during the race was presented to Mayor Thomas M. Menino. The street won’t be open to the public until buildings along it have been inspected for structural damage, city officials said. The charges against Tsarnaev, filed under seal Sunday, were presented to him Monday in his room at Boston’s Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, where he has been listed in serious condition since his capture Friday. FBI officials said Monday that Tsarnaev was wounded in the head, neck, leg and hand after two shootouts with law enforcement officers. “The government will always seek to elicit all the actionable intelligence and information we can from terrorist suspects taken into our custody,” said Carmen Ortiz, U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts. At the same time, rejecting calls made by congressional Republicans, White House spokesman Jay Carney said the administration would not designate Tsarnaev as an enemy combatant. The designation would have permitted additional interrogation of

one in a tie for eighth-place at 11-over-par, but a second round in which they were 16-over-par through just six holes proved to be too much to overcome. “We fought until the last putt dropped but the start of the second round was just too much for us to overcome,” head coach Brian Craig. Junior Ben Stow finished his weekend in a tie for 12th place with an overall score of 215, 5-over-par. UK’s 50-over-par overall score was 42 strokes worse than Alabama, who took the title for the second consecutive year at 8-over-par.

Sororities compete in tug o’ war for charity By Anyssa Roberts

Hold onto your shells. The ladies of Delta Zeta and the gentlemen of Kappa Alpha will be hosting Turtle Tug, a tug o’ war contest in Jell-O at 4 p.m. on Tuesday at the Johnson Center Fields. Slip n’ slides and water balloons will be filled with Jell-O in additional competitions. There will be a fraternity and sorority bracket, with participants grouped into teams of six to compete. The Alpha Theta chapter of Delta Zeta was founded at UK in 1923, and since has been home to hundreds of collegiate women. Turtle Tug is a part of

Delta Zeta tradition as a way for the group to raise funds for their philanthropy. “Delta Zeta is affiliated with The Painted Turtle Camp, as well as Lexington Hearing and Speech,” said Brooke Courie, freshman Delta Zeta. “We do a lot of fundraising events throughout the year, as well as send

members of our sorority to the hearing and speech center every week to volunteer.” The event will put sororities and fraternities up against each other in the midst of Jell-O-filled mayhem. “The different pledge classes of our sorority will

also compete against one another,” Courie said. “I am a freshman in Delta Zeta, so this is my first turtle tug event and I am really looking forward to it.” Each team costs $60 to enter and the check can be made out to Delta Zeta. The winning team will win a prize, Courie said.

Tsarnaev, but Carney said it was unnecessary. “It is important to remember that since 9/11 we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists,” Carney said. The weapon-of-mass-destruction charge is rooted in a fairly broad definition of the term. Under U.S. law, a weapon of mass destruction may refer to a chemical, biological or radiological weapon of any size. It also may refer to a bomb, mine or rocket, or similar kinds of “destructive devices.” The statute does not specify a certain number of casualties for a weapon to be considered one of “mass destruction.” The charges were unsealed in federal court in Boston shortly before the usually bustling city calmed for a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m., the approximate time of the first bomb explosion a week earlier. At Logan International Airport, passengers paused for about a minute. During the proceeding at the hospital, a transcript shows, Tsarnaev nodded in response to several questions and answered “no” when he was asked whether he could afford a lawyer. “I find that the defendant is alert, mentally competent and lucid,” U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne B. Bowler said, according to the transcript. “He is aware of the nature of the proceedings.” Tsarnaev’s brother and

suspected co-conspirator, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died very early Friday after a running gun battle with police. The two men had carjacked a Mercedes SUV around midnight Thursday, according to an affidavit filed Monday in which FBI Special Agent Daniel R. Genck vividly describes a confrontation. According to Genck’s affidavit, a man was sitting in his car in Cambridge late Thursday when one of the Tsarnaev brothers approached and tapped on the passenger’s side window. “When the victim rolled down the window, the man reached in, opened the door and entered the victim’s vehicle,” Genck recounted. “The man pointed a firearm at the victim and stated, ‘Did you hear about the Boston explosion?’ and ‘I did that.’ The man removed the magazine from his gun and showed the victim it had a bullet in it, and then reinserted the magazine. The man then stated, ‘I am serious.’ “ According to the affidavit, the carjacker then forced the victim to drive to another location, where they picked up a second man, who put something in the trunk of the car. The victim further said the two men spoke to each other in a foreign language. The car’s owner said he was able to escape eventually after being driven to an ATM to withdraw money, and then to a gas station and convenience store.

Next year we’re going to have an opportunity to do that.” Both players talked about how different next year will be, almost all of which dealt with altering their mental attitude. For Poythress, his freshman season taught him how hard it is to succeed in college basketball. “I need to get my mentality right,” he said. “I’ve just

Everybody is going to get pushed in practice.” The arrival of one of the greatest recruiting classes in history can cure a lot of ills.

Wiggins cancels visits, will still talk to schools By Tom Hurley

Andrew Wiggins has cancelled a trio of in-person meetings with the head coaches of three of the four schools left battling for his commitment, CBS reported Monday. The Huntington (W.Va.) Prep small forward was due to meet with North Carolina head coach Roy Williams on Monday in Huntington. Kansas head coach Bill Self was due to visit Wiggins on Tuesday, with Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton set to meet with the top-ranked player in the Class of 2013 on Wednesday. All three meetings have now been cancelled. The meetings were scheduled at the end of a busy three-week stretch for the 6foot-8, 197-pound Canadian. Wiggins has taken part in three high school basketball all-star games in as many weeks, beginning with the

McDonald’s All-American game on April 3. Following that game in Chicago, Wiggins travelled to New York to take part in the 2013 edition of the Jordan Brand Classic. From there he flew to Portland, Ore., and roomed with Class of 2014 UK commit Karl Towns Jr., in the lead-up to Saturday’s Nike Hoop Summit. Huntington Prep head coach Rob Fulford took to Twitter on Monday to explain why the visits have been cancelled. “Andrew will be still be speaking with everyone by phone,” Fulford said. “Hasn’t made it in from Portland yet. Has been stuck in airports with cancellations.” UK head coach John Calipari met with Wiggins prior to the high school senior’s participation in the three all-star games. No timetable has been given for when Wiggins will make his college decision.

UK athletes honored at CATSPYs By Lindsay Travis

This year’s annual CATSPY event had everything from “Harlem Shake” videos to Coach Joe B. Hall talking about spilling Gatorade. Numerous awards were given out to current student athletes, coaches and trainers. The CATSPYs is an event much like ESPN’s ESPYS award show, only much bluer. Memorial Coliseum was transformed Monday night as UK hosted the 11th annual CATSPY Awards. The entire space was aglow with blue and white lights. A sand artist kicked off the event, creating logos of all the different sports, a national championship trophy and finally the UK logo. Women’s basketball coach Matthew Mitchell opened the event and spoke about UK’s next transformation. “I think toughness is going to be the cornerstone of our next transformation,” Mitchell said. Luis Orta, a senior on the track and field team, won two highly honored awards at the CATSPYs: The character award and Mr. Wildcat.

Orta said that when he came to UK he was “scared, cold, and knew no English.” However, with the help of his fellow teammates and Miss Wildcat Chelsea Oswald, he was able to have a successful career while at UK. The night was also successful for Greg Ferrucci of the diving team and Cally Macumber of the crosscountry team. The pair won the male and female performance of the year awards as well as the K-Association male and female athlete of the year awards. The gymnastics team had an award-winning night to match their record-breaking season. Head coach Tim Garrison was one of three coaches of the year. Shannon Mitchell won the Scratch award, an award given to a non-scholarship athlete whose effort shows they play purely for the love of the game. The entire gymnastics team was also one of the two teams of the year. Garrison had a message for all of the athletes in the room. “Improve yourself. Improve those around you. Set a high expectation level for

You chose to come to the SEC, the toughest conference in the nation. You chose not to be average. You chose to be exceptional.” Joe B. Hall, John Cropp and Jim Madaleno presented the Lifetime Achievement award to trainer Walt McCombs. McCombs and Hall worked closely with each other during Hall’s tenure as head men’s basketball coach. “I’m proud to be here

tonight,” Hall said. “Walt was a friend of everyone. He was a man who did his job to perfection. This guy is the ultimate warrior.” Director of sports medicine Jim Madaleno helped personify McComb’s character to the crowd by adding, “The university defines loyalty by Walt McCombs.” The evening was full of funny videos created by the different teams and motivational speeches. The athletes who were awarded were thankful and some were surprised with the recognition.

Former Cats begin NBA playoffs By Cody Daniel

When the NBA Playoffs started Saturday night, seven of the 16 playoff teams had former UK players on their roster. The first action former Cats saw in the postseason was the fifth seeded Chicago Bulls heading to Brooklyn to square off against the fourth seeded Nets. The Nets would dominate in a 106-89 victory.

Bogans played nearly 10 minutes, snatching two rebounds, while Teague did not see the court for the Bulls. The next game saw the Grizzlies take on the Clippers in the first round. Bledsoe played valuable minutes for the Clippers, racking up 15 points on a perfect 7-7 shooting performance with six rebounds and four assists as the Clippers cruised to a 112-91 win over the Grizzlies.

Prince played 29 minutes, contributing two points and four rebounds. Sunday’s action for the former Cats featured the Lakers and Jodie Meeks in San Antonio to face the Spurs. The Spurs controlled the Game and had smooth sailing in a 91-79 win over the Kobe Bryant-less Lakers. Meeks would contribute four points and two rebounds in 19 minutes of action. To conclude week 24, the

Houston Rockets took to the road to face the explosive Oklahoma City Thunder. The Thunder would take over early in the second half and never look back, cruising to a 120-91 victory. Terrence Jones put up four points along with eight rebounds for the Rockets while DeAndre Liggins of the Thunder scored three points with three rebounds that came late in the Thunder win.

and current players alike have talked about how tough practices will be. Those battles are what could turn that aforementioned mentality upside down. “I think that’s going to be the best thing … because you’re going against pros every day,” Cauley-Stein said. “This year was like that until Nerlens (Noel) got hurt and then I was going against Brian Long and Sam Malone. You’re not getting better. … Next year it’s going to be a lot different and that’s what I’m going to capitalize on.”

Cauley-Stein and Poythress expressed an optimism Monday that had been lost over the course of last season. The unbridled hype of following a national champion was quickly dashed, and pressure set in. Now, with an offseason to prepare, experience on their side and help on the way, last year’s struggles could be the very fuel for next season’s success. “The potential is unlimited,” Poythress said. “We can do so good. Whatever we want to do, we can do. The sky is the limit.”

letter to the editor

The reasons to join a Greek organization at UK Greek organizations have a clearly visible presence on the campus of UK, whether that presence is welcomed or not. I joined one of these organizations in the fall and being a part of this group has allowed me to meet other young women who will, quite literally, be my friends and sisters for life. I have also made, and continued, great friendships with members of other Greek organizations, and “divisions” and “competition” within Greek life have not affected how I interact with these people. Other friends of mine, at UK and other universities, are not involved in Greek life and that does not mean that I value or respect them any less: Those individuals made a choice that works for them and finding where you personally fit in is what going Greek is about. At UK, Greek organizations make many contributions to cam-

pus life, as their own organizations, conference groups and individuals who represent their organizations. To say that Greek life is a bad thing for UK fails to recognize the good contributions that come from all Greek organizations. There are many stereotypes associated with being involved in any Greek organization, especially one in the National Panhellenic Conference at UK. Those stereotypes can come from non-Greeks and members of other Greek groups, but they can all be damaging and hurtful nonetheless. As a Greek, you are always wearing your letters. So in everything I do, I reflect my sorority. Before joining a sorority I wanted to earn good grades, make friends, take part in fun activities, continue being kind to others and give back to my community. Now I can do all of that with my sorority and as an individual reflecting (hopefully always) the best side of my own Greek organization and

the other Greek organizations on campus. Going Greek has not made me closed-minded, snobby or entitled. Individuals who have those characteristics before joining Greek organizations and fail to soften their personalities and actions after joining are often the ones who nonGreeks (and fellow Greeks) have problems with. It is unfortunate that stereotypes and lasting biases result from those select few individuals. Whether you are part of a Greek letter organization or not, stereotypes and biases are forced upon everyone. Although there will always be differences between Greek and nonGreek students, and further differences within each part of the student body, it is important to remember that we are all part of the same University of Kentucky.
