The 80-degree sunlight beat down on the bare backs of eight men Thursday as they hacked and spiked tall stalks of tobacco on a farm in Garrard County. Each man put their skills to the test as they competed for the No. 1 spot as top tobacco cutter. Garrard County held its 32nd Annual Tobacco Cutting Contest in Lancaster, Ky., where residents gathered to watch eight-time winner Alvin Stamper

pick up his ninth title after defeating Brad Bolton in an uphill battle against time and the elements. Participants were judged based on time and the number of stalks for the grand prize of $500 and a plaque. The event was hosted by UK’s Garrard County Extension top advisory committee. State Rep. Jonathan Shell (36th district), who was one of the judges, said the event is one of the biggest in the county. “It unites all the people while letting us continue the traditions of our community,” he said.


Festival celebrates 25 years of diversity LAURA SHRAKE lshrake@kykernel.com

Celebrating 25 years of diversity is the name of the game this weekend at Lexington’s Roots and Heritage Festival. About 50,000 people are expected at the annual event, which includes live music, a youth talent show, and a barber and beauty competition, said Danielle Meadows, marketing coordinator for the festival. “We have events that

reach out to all different ages and types of people,” Meadows said. “We want to show that we are rooted in the community and are committed to the people.” The festival, which begins Friday, will include a parade along Elm Tree lane on Saturday as well as local and regional vendors at the corner of Elm Tree lane and Third Street in downtown Lexington. New to this year’s festival is a health and beauty event, which will offer 20 booths of health screenings, exercise demonstrations, healthy food samples and a beauty bar, Meadows said. For more information on the Roots and Heritage Festival, visit rootsfestky.com. Though most events are this weekend, other events will continue throughout September.

250,000 balloons expected at this year’s fight ANYSSA ROBERTS aroberts@kykernel.com

The World’s Largest Water Balloon Fight is back for its sixth year with more people, more balloons and more water. Each year the Christian Student Fellowship tries to break its record for the title of having the world’s largest water balloon fight, and this year is no exception. The organization anticipates having close to 250,000 balloons on Friday, raising the total from last year’s 236,484 balloons, said Brian Marshall, the lead campus minister for CSF. Marshall said the amount of water left on

Johnson Center field after last year’s fight watered the lawn for days without sprinklers. This year, in response to concerns about the amount of water used, the organization plans on collecting donations to raise funds to build a well in Africa. “Water is so readily available in the United States … this is a way to show we have not forgotten about other people less fortunate,” he said. This year’s water balloon fight is at 11:55 p.m. Friday at the Johnson Center fields. Marshall said students looking to attend only “need to get ready to throw some water balloons.”

Men’s soccer suffers road defeat

Tyler Riggs keeps the ball in play for UK on Sept. 9, 2012 in Lexington.

UK men’s soccer (1-1-0) suffered its first defeat of the season, 1-0, against East Tennessee State University (1-1-1) on Thursday. After a scoreless first half, ETSU freshman defender Thibault Civalier scored the lone goal of the match in the 47th minute, after the Buccaneers placed a corner kick in the box. UK senior goalkeeper Jack Van Arsdale deflected the initial shot on goal, but Civalier was there to put in the rebound. UK was unable to answer the goal, as ETSU held a 10-5 advantage in shots taken. The Cats will look to rebound from the loss when they return to Lexington

to take on Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne on Sunday at noon. Under second-year head coach Johan Cedergren, the Cats are attempting to build off of last year, when they made an NCAA Tournament appearance for the first time since 2003. UK senior forward Tyler Riggs has 23 goals during his collegiate career, which places him fifth all-time in most goals scored at UK. Riggs had seven goals during the 2012 season, but he remains scoreless this season. Cats senior goalkeeper Jack Van Arsdale is also working his way into the UK record books, as he holds sixth place in career goals against average at

1.21. Van Arsdale started the final 15 games in the goal last year, and earned all-conference accolades after blanking Louisville on Sept. 14. Van Arsdale was in goal against the Buccaneers on Thursday in his first start of the season. IPFW is seeking its first win of the season, after settling for a 2-2 tie with Northern Kentucky University on Aug. 30 and falling to the University of Dayton, 4-2, on Sept. 1. The Mastodons will take on Loyola University Chicago on Friday before traveling to Lexington. STAFF REPORT

From adored to abhorred:

Farmer to plead guilty to ethics violations

Months ago, former UK basketball star Richie Farmer was cherished as an “Unforgettable.” Today he is certainly unforgivable. Farmer has seen his reputation as a Kentucky golden boy marred by scandal. The BOYD C.M. former agriculture commisHAYES sioner from 2004 to 2011 will Kernel plead guilty to charges of columnist misusing state resources and could face up to two years in jail. Farmer wasn’t just another former basketball player. He was the chosen one — the one to save a UK b asketball program sullied under then-head coach Eddie Sutton. He was the allAmerican boy next door for thousands of UK fans. Farmer certainly had great power in his popularity, whether he was able to handle the responsibility or not. From a very young age, he had the Commonwealth of Kentucky in his hands. “Richie had been accustomed to being a public figure since he was about 16,” said Al Cross, director of the Institute for Rural Jour-

nalism and Community Issues at UK. “But he never quite understood how to be a public official.” As a basketball star for Clay County High School, Farmer was named Mr. Basketball in 1988 and won a spot on the UK basketball team under Sutton, just in time to see the program fall under probation after an NCAA investigation uncovered academic rules violations as well as payment to a player’s guardian. When many players decided to take their talents elsewhere, Farmer was one of the few who stuck around to see Rick Pitino named as the new UK head coach in 1990. It must’ve seemed like God’s will that the state’s darling would lead the Cats out of the depths of probation. In 1992, the “Unforgettables” would soar past expectations into the Elite eight of the NCAA Tournament under Pitino. Of course, antagonist Duke and Christian Laettner would put a stop to Farmer’s collegiate journey, but that wouldn’t tarnish his reputation as a basketball hero. In fact, it may have endeared him further to fans. Not days after their final collegiate game, Farmer and teammates Deron Feldhaus, Sean

Woods and John Pelphrey would see their jerseys hanging from the rafters of Rupp Arena, a g esture to express just how cherished the “Unforgettables,” were to Kentuckians. “Richie was a special case,” Cross said, who spent 16 years as the chief political writer for The Courier-Journal. "He was a Kentuckian." He said Farmer was perfect to maintain the tradition of homegrown talent. "He starred in the state tournament and he was a great outside shooter — that's the kind of shot that an average g uy can make. He fit all the criteria,” Cross said. It only makes sense fans were so inclined to vote Farmer into office in 2003. In fact, it was widely speculated he could make a run at governor. But if Farmer hadn’t been a basketball hero, would he have even been qualified to be agriculture commissioner? Running the largest regulatory department in Kentucky's state government, Farmer had incredible influe nce at his fingertips. The agriculture department sits behind the scenes of so much of our daily lives, from "Kentucky Proud" stickers on local food to the signature of approval for gas station inspections. And outside of a mere bachelor's degree, Farmer was almost completely unprepared to handle such responsibility. And since 1988, power has always been placed in Farmer's hands, and for no reason other than the fact that he can put a ball through a hoop from 20 feet away. “If there’s a civil religion in this state,” Cross said, “It’s basketball, and UK is the leading denomination.” Farmer will now plead guilty on two federal indictments of Kentucky ethics law violations. The initial charges included using state funds to pay close friends to build a basketball court at his Frankfort home, amongst othe r wrongdoings. Clearly not every former UK player abuses their power. Many achieve honest success. But how many Richie Farmers does it take to convince us to reevaluate the responsibility we are willing to give the young men whose notoriety comes solely from their athletic ability? Though basketball is Kentucky's "civil religion," as Cross said, perhaps we should be more discerning regarding the deities we choose to worship and the amount of power we are willing to put in their hands.

Women’s soccer gears up against Louisville

PHOTO BY JONATHAN KRUEGER | STAFF

The women’s soccer team gathers on the field after a 7-0 victory against Eastern Kentucky University on Friday, Aug. 30 at home.

KEVIN ERPENBECK sports@kykernel.com

As the UK women’s soccer team gears up to face the University of Louisville at home on Friday, UK head coach Jon Lipsitz looks for his third consecutive win against the Cardinals. “This is always a very exciting week for us,” Lipsitz said. “It’s a great rivalry, and we have a great respect for their program. You just know it’s going to be a tremendous game, as it has been every single year I’ve been here.” The Cats go into Friday’s game undefeated in their past three matches. After tying the University of Utah 0-0 on Aug. 25, UK earned a 7-0 victory over Eastern Kentucky University on Aug. 30, and defeated the University of Toledo on the road, 2-1. After the Utah match, Lipsitz make five changes in his starting offensive lineup. “Somehow, we all felt like it was a crisis after

we tied Utah at home,” Lipsitz said. “Good for us. It’s good for the players to feel an urgency like that.” Lipsitz said he was excited about the way the team attacked. “But I also think we’re going to be tested in new ways we haven’t been yet, when we play Louisville,” he said. One of the players that has benefited greatly from the team’s change is freshman forward Zoe Swift, who has had four goals since the Utah match, including a hat-trick against EKU. The young forward is one of 13 freshmen on the team this year. while the Cats only start four upperclassmen. One of those upperclassmen is senior goalkeeper Kayla King, who said she sees the confidence the young players have. “With the coaching changes and how he’s moved certain players around us, that confidence will continue to grow,” King said. “If we want to

get into the SEC Tournament and the NCAA Tournament this year, that confidence has to continue. We have to continue to score goals.” Friday will also be another showdown with King’s hometown school, as the Louisville native looks to continue her success against the Cardinals. The Cats defeated Louisville 2-0 last year during the Cardinals’ home opener, with King recording a career-high of six saves, including a lead-protecting penalty save. Three players on UK’s roster grew up in Louisville, including King. Lipsitz thinks the connection adds to the rivalry even more. “Kayla is a tremendous example, as this game means the world to her,” Lipsitz said. “But it doesn’t matter where she’s from because she bleeds blue. It’s special, and we’d be lying if we said there wasn’t a little edge on this game.” The match begins at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at the UK Soccer Complex. 09.06.13 | weekend timeout | 7

Kentucky Classic begins Friday KYLE ARENSDORF sports@kykernel.com

The UK volleyball team will play Virginia Commonwealth University at 7 p.m. on Friday in its first game of the Kentucky Classic at Memorial Coliseum. UK will carry a 1-2 record into the game after the start to the season at the Long Beach State Tournament, where the Cats lost their first two games to then-No. 18 Florida State University and then-unranked University of Illinois. Florida State has since moved up to the No. 15 spot as Illinois has taken its place at No. 18. UK also slid to No. 21 in the latest coaches poll after beginning the season at No. 17. Despite the slow start, senior outside hitter Whitney Billings logged threestraight double-doubles to bring her career total to 33. As part of her 26kill night against Illinois, Billings eclipsed the 1,000-kill mark, becoming the 14th player in program history to notch that figure. UK head coach Craig Skinner said he was pleased with Billings’ effort, but was less than enthusiastic about his team’s performance. “We need other people to step up and terminate balls when we need points,” Skinner said in a UK Athletics press release. The Cats also started the 2010 season at 1-2 before making the NCAA tournament. VCU brings a 3-0 record to Lexington with first-year head coach Jody Rogers. Rogers coached Division II at the University of Indianapolis and racked up over 8 | weekend timeout | 09.06.13

400 wins in her 16-year career, but has never coached Division I before this year. Rogers was also named the CaptainU Coach of the Year in 2012 for leading Indianapolis to its best finish in program history by reaching the Round of Four in the NCAA Division II Championships. VCU captured the IUPUI Hampton Inn Invitational title last weekend in Indianapolis, as sophomore outside hitter Romana Kriskova was named tournament MVP. Tickets for Friday’s game can be purchased online or at the Joe Craft Center ticket office on the night of the event. Also at Memorial Coliseum, Liberty University will take on VCU and East Tennessee State University Friday at 12 p.m. and at 5 p.m., respectfully. The games kick-off the Kentucky Classic.

UK’s passing game vs. Miami’s secondary

Fans expecting to see the glorious return of the “Air Raid” offense last week against Western Kentucky University instead saw a big flashing sign reading, “Under Construction.” With sophomore Jalen Whitlow at quarterback, the only successful offense came on the ground. Sophomore quarterback Maxwell Smith offered a glimpse of what Cats offensive coordiALEX nator Neal Brown likes to do, completing 8-of-13 FORKNER passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. Kernel Now with Smith in from the starting gun, excolumnist pect a more successful aerial attack. Against Marshall last week, Miami University (Ohio) gave up 287 yards passing and five touchdowns. Nine different Thundering Herd wide receivers recorded a catch. The Cats should treat this game as an opportunity to get things in order. Expect wide receivers like freshman Ryan Timmons, freshman Alex Montgomery and junior Javess Blue to make the first major impact of their careers. And maybe UK can start to figure out how to use its stable of tight ends. As for Smith, this is his chance to make the job his for good. A 300-yard, multiple touchdown game would go a long way in cementing his status as starter. Edge: UK Commonwealth crowd vs. Miami’s composure Even though the season started with a whimper, fans will likely show up for Mark Stoops’ first game at Commonwealth Stadium, at least if those resurgent season ticket sales are any indication. But just because the fans are in the stands doesn’t mean they’ll be loud. Cats fans had Hilltopper fans solidly outnumbered, but their voices were stolen by a stagnant offense and porous defense. If UK’s offense gets off to a faster start and the defense starts stacking stops, then Cats fans might engage in some cathartic cacophony. After all, they haven’t done a lot of cheering at Commonwealth in quite some time. And on their trip to Marshall last week, in front of a crowd of only 27,148, the RedHawks were rocked by a score of 52-14. UK fans could — and should — double that attendance number. The Cats might just replicate that score. Edge: UK Overall Edge: UK The Cats probably wanted to take a forget-me-now last weekend, but putting together a nice performance and a comfortable victory will go a long way toward righting the proverbial ship. And they better swab the deck and mend the sails because a storm named Bridgewater blows into town next week.


What kind of Roommate are you?

timeout features

Almost everyone has a “crazy roommate” story to tell, but what is that “crazy” roommate saying about your behavior behind closed doors? Test how good of a roommate you really are. You may be surprised. ANYSSA ROBERTS aroberts@kykernel.com

1. Your roommate’s leftover Chipotle has been sitting in the fridge for weeks now. You think it’s starting to grow life. You:

A. Take the container and leave it on their bed — they will get the picture. B.

Dump it in the trash — doesn’t matter who left it, it bothers you.

C. Leave a note saying, “Whoever left this needs to throw it out.”

2. You finally get a chance to bring your boyfriend/girlfriend by the house for the night. Your roommate is still home. You:

A. Don’t care who is watching. B. Try to tone down the flirting until he or

she leaves. C. Try to ignore your roommate — eventually he or she will leave.

3. You come home from your last class and your roommate left a stack of dirty dishes in the kitchen sink ... again. You:

A.Wake your roommate up to have a discus-

sion about washing the dishes. Make a snack and balance your dishes on top of the dirty ones. C. Roll up your sleeves and wash them yourself — you’d rather not look at that mess. 4. Your roommate is studying for their chemistry exam. You’re staying up late to Skype your best friend from home, so you:

B.

A. Try to talk quietly. B. Turn up the volume. Your roommate can

get headphones. C. Move to the hallway.

5. You can’t stand the person your roommate’s been dating, and they plan to have a “night in” on the same night that you want to relax at home. So you:

A. Try to get a friend to go out with you and give them some privacy. After all, you just had your friends over the other night. B. Fake that you’re sick, so he or she will feel bad about having someone over. C. Ask your roommate in advance if you two can compromise and share privacy privileges.

What your answers mean:

Q1. You’re a good roommate if you answered B. In the case of the “gross roommate” it is best to take the initiative and clean the mess. If you answered A or C, leaving the dirty container on the bed can be seen as disrespectful, and could manifest bad feelings toward each other. Leaving a note could work if it leads to a straightforward conversation about cleanliness, but don’t let the matter sit, it doesn’t make things better.

Q2. You’re a good roommate if you answered B. Toning it down is a sign of respect. Your roommate may get the picture, they may not, but snapping at them will only make it awkward for everyone in the room. If you answered A or B, ignoring her might make for an uncomfortable atmosphere, and getting too flirtatious with your “special” friend- worse yet.

Q3. You’re a good roommate if you answered C. This could be tough to do, but unless it is your roommates’ designated chore to do dishes, it is everyone’s responsibility to keep the kitchen clean.

If you answered A or B, adding to the stack of dishes isn’t going to make them disappear. For the sake of your sanity, and your relationship with your roommate, clean them now and address the issue later on.

Q4. You’re a good roommate if you answered C. Moving into another room is a sign of respect and gives you and your friend the privacy to be as loud as you want. If you answered B or A, talking quietly while your roommate studies nearby may just annoy her, since she can still hear you. Putting your friend on speaker may be a sign something else needs to be addressed between you and your roommate. Q5. You’re a good roommate if you answered A or C. In the event that C doesn’t work out it’s good to have answer A in your back pocket. If you answered B, dishonesty is not the way to build any relationship. Making your roommate feel bad about bothering you may work on them, but after a while they may just get annoyed.
