Concealed Carry group seeks change Students see no difference between campus and city By Laura Shrake firstname.lastname@example.org
For at least 13 students, feeling safe does not equal being safe. The students who gathered for the Students for Concealed Carry meeting Wednesday say their side needs to be heard. “If you want something to be heard, you have to make it
an issue,” Tyler Waide said, the Kentucky director of Students for Concealed Carry and political science senior. Waide said he wants the university to change its policy regarding the allowance of concealed carries on campus, pointing out that doing so is not illegal, but is against university policy. Waide said his rights
shouldn’t stop at campus property because “bad guys don’t stop at campus property.” Waide and the non-partisan organization discussed several ideas to reach out to campus about what the organization does. Some events discussed were postering the campus, collaborating with other cam-
pus organizations like Young Americans for Liberty, College Republicans and College Democrats, and an open holster protest. This protest, where members of the organization will wear an empty holster on campus, will serve to start conversations between students about the issue of concealed carry. One member of the organization has deep-seeded beliefs that brought him to
the organization. “I believe deeply in the second amendment rights,” political science and engineering senior Scotty Stutts said. “Allowing concealed carry would make campus safer ... students have the right to defend themselves.” First-year graduate student Cassidy Henry wonders what makes campus so much different than the sidewalk across the street for concealed carry allowance.
“I don’t turn into a homicidal maniac when I step on campus,” Henry said. “It’s a matter (of having a) better sense of security.” She also said it is comforting to know that her options aren’t just to scream. “Concealed carry is about defense, not offense,” Henry said. Waide said that although the group died off somewhat last year, he wants to make sure the “right side is heard.”
Students stop to commemorate 9/11 Cadets read names of victims throughout 12-year anniversary By Will Wright email@example.com
At 8:46 a.m. on Wednesday, the same time as American Airlines Flight 11 crashed into the North Tower of the World Trade Center, about a dozen people plus about a dozen ROTC students stopped and watched as the American flag in front of the Main Building was set to half-mast. Twelve years ago, four planes were hijacked. Two hit the World Trade Center in New York City, one hit the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and one crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pa. Immediately after the flag was set, a ROTC volunteer began reading off the names of 9/11 victims and soldiers who died in Iraq and Afghanistan. Army ROTC senior Brandon Slocum said the names would be read con-
tinuously until around 5 p.m. Throughout the day, a few people at a time stood and listened to the long list of names. “I just think that it is really important that we do this because everyone on the list deserves to be remembered,” said Audrey Cochran, a Spanish sophomore who listened to some of the names. “You see all the people that just walk by.” Cochran said a lot of people forget how important 9/11 was. “My roommates this morning didn’t even know it was September 11,” she said. “They didn’t even realize.” Nutritional sciences graduate student Marissa Kruthaup said she also thinks many students don’t recognize how important the terrorist attack was. “I think, in general, a See 9/11 on page 2

Psychology sophomore Megan Presley guards the flag at the 9/11 memorial in front of the Main Building Wednesday.
A satellite built partially by UK students will be launched into space in early November. The satellite is a result of a collaboration between UK, Morehead State University and Kentucky Space. The small box-shaped satellite will be packed up and shipped to Albuquerque, New Mexico Thursday.
Knowing that the satellite will soon be leaving the lab creates a few different emotions, electrical engineering graduate student Jason Rexroat said. “It’s a lot of excitement,” Rexroat said. “A lot of nervousness.” The group began working on the satellite in August of 2012. “It’s been eight or nine months of thinking of nothing else,” Rexroat said. “It has
been 50-60 hours a week for months.” Knowing that the satellite they have worked so hard on will be launched into space in months is an exciting thought, Rexroat said. “Our finger prints, our DNA is all over it,” Rexroat said. While performing the last tests on satellite, the crew waited anxiously for it to spring open, like it will after launch. “If it’s this stressful in the lab, imagine how it will be when it launches,” said Lumpp, associate professor of electrical engineering.
Rexroat will meet the satellite in Albuquerque and help load it onto a rocket. From there, the satellite will travel to Virginia, where it will later be launched into space. The satellite from Kentucky and a number of satellites from other universities will pop out of the rocket upon entering space, Lumpp said. “It’s almost a big jack-nthe box launcher,” Lumpp said. The satellite will feed back a variety of data. It has See SATELLITE on page 2
Former UK quarterback weighs in on rivalry game By Matt Overing email@example.com
The last time the University of Louisville played as a top-10 team in Commonwealth Stadium was Sept. 15, 2007. UK, led by senior quarterback Andre’ Woodson’s four touchdown passes, defeated the No. 9 Cardinals, 40-34. This Saturday, Louisville will enter Commonwealth Stadium as the seventhranked team in the country by the Associated Press. UK’s win in 2007 was the first versus Louisville since 2002, ending a four-game winning streak for the Cardi-
nals over the Cats. In an exclusive interview with the Kernel, Woodson, now the wide receivers coach at Morehead State University, said that UK has a chance to end another streak this year. “It should be a great game,” Woodson said. “I think UK is well-equipped to win this game. The main thing they have to do is make sure they take care of the football and come away with points (on offense).” This year, UK will look to stop a two-game losing streak against the Cardinals. Woodson said stopping a slide isn’t as important as winning against Louisville.

FOOTBALL Continued from page 1 As a player, Woodson’s final game against the Cardinals was the only game versus Louisville that Woodson won in his three starts. Woodson offered his opinion on what players can do to avoid being “too hyped.” “I think, for those guys, they’ll have to just focus in and pay attention to the small little details,” Woodson said. Facing a ranked opponent, according to Woodson, requires mental discipline. “They need to understand they’re going up against a great opponent. Everyone knows how talented Louisville is. They have a great coaching staff that gets them prepared each game.” Louisville has amassed 93 points in their first two games. Junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has thrown nine touchdowns this
The Pershing Rifles, a military fraternity in the Army ROTC, set up the memorial ceremony. Flags for the victims of 9/11 and for the soldiers in the conflicts that followed were put in the ground, forming a big “9/11” on the field in front of the Main Building. “I think it’s a nice way for students to have a visual reminder of the event,” Kruthaup said. For some students, including ROTC sophomore Sarah Gossett, the terrorist attack on Sept. 11 had a large impact on their life choices. “(9/11) meant a lot to me,” Gossett said. “It was one of the two major reasons I joined the military.” The program launching the satellite has a number of other space-related projects that go largely unnoticed by campus. “I think a lot of people really don’t realize it’s here,” Rexroat said. “It’s really pretty great experience for a college student.” year, which leads the nation. Woodson was impressed with what he saw in Bridgewater last season. “He plays the part of being a big-time quarterback,” Woodson said. “I think it will be a challenge for UK’s defense to slow him down, he has a lot of weapons.” Last season, Louisville beat UK 32-14 in Louisville. One difference this year is the two-quarterback system UK employs with sophomore quarterbacks Maxwell Smith and Jalen Whitlow, one that Woodson says could pay dividends for the Cats. “When you have two quarterbacks, it makes it tough for a defense to scheme for both of them,” Woodson said. The former Cats quarterback thinks fans are in for a treat this Saturday. “It should be a great game,” Woodson said. “You have a chance to watch three quarterbacks battle it out. It should be interesting to see who ends up winning this one.”
Academic Enhancement still growing in its tenth year Tutoring service operates with input directly from students By Anne Halliwell firstname.lastname@example.org
The Study offered 611 tutoring sessions in its first semester in 2004, last year it offered over 22,000 sessions. The Peer Tutoring program regularly employs over 90 tutors for more than 50 specific classes, and is the most popular service for undergraduates, according to the Academic Enhancement website. The Academic Enhancement department is located in The Study on South Campus and offers services that help students through their current coursework and prepare them for upper-level classes. The program was officially created in the fall of 2004 and was tasked with the cre-
ation and implementation of a student tutoring service. Jim Breslin, the Academic Enhancement associate director, has seen dramatic growth in the last nine years. He was brought onto the staff in October 2004 to help rethink the tutoring program. The Study offers tutoring for more than 30 specific classes at any point in time, and the classes that they choose to focus on depends largely on student input, Breslin said. Students can send in emails, fill out a form on the website, or talk to a peer tutor about a class that they’d like to receive help in, Breslin said. Once the Academic Enhancement department recognizes a pattern of students
asking about a certain course or area of study, they begin looking into how soon they can provide that service and to what extent, Breslin said. “Part of our mission when we were created in 2004 was to be a department on UK’s campus that’s student-centered and student-focused. And we take that part of our mission really seriously… A lot of the changes that we make — any kinds of new programs that we add, modifications that we make — those really come from the students themselves,” Breslin said. Spanish junior Betsy Snyder has been tutoring students in Spanish for two semesters. Before that, she was a peer educator and worked with students in a classroom setting, monitoring their progress during a course and scheduling meetings with them outside of class. Snyder says that she sees
significant growth in the students she tutors from the time they begin working with her to the end of the semester. She stresses the autonomy that tutoring gives students, saying that her students will often begin the semester dependent on her help, then progress to a point where she can operate as an occasional resource. “It’s really rewarding to see that maybe the way I described things made more sense to (them), and in a smaller setting,” Snyder said. Breslin says that although Peer Tutoring is the most visible and popular service, it is certainly not the only one. Peer Academic Coaching, Academic Enhancement’s newest service, is now available in The Annex on North Campus, and will blend learning strategies with the ability to connect with people from your class and review together.

Syria chemical weapons deal puts Russia back at center of international influence By Matthew Schofield McClatchy Foreign Staff (MCT)
BERLIN — In one day, with one simply stated proposal, Russian President Vladimir Putin turned a losing position into a winning one. The Russians had been throwing everything they had into the arguments against military intervention in Syria. They questioned the lack of concrete evidence, and the United States and its allies countered that logic alone made the case. The Russians noted their investigation into a March chemical weapons case had laid responsibility on the rebels, and the United States pushed past without so much as a glance. Putin’s
kernel. we do it daily.
people emphasized the importance of the United Nations and the Security Council, and President Barack Obama’s administration dismissed their need. And then on Monday, Secretary of State John Kerry, in what most interpreted at the time as an almost flippant response, answered a reporter’s question by saying that Syrian President Bashar Assad could avoid a military attack by handing his chemical stockpiles over to the United Nations for destruction. Hours later, the Russians said they had made that proposal to Syria, and by Tuesday morning the Russian proposal appeared to have headed off a U.S.-led military strike.
Beyond halting the rush to punish the Syrian government for the alleged use of chemical weapons, the development cast Russia and its president, Vladimir Putin, as a global peacemaker and — experts say this is not to be overlooked — embarrassed an American administration. Marcel de Haas, a Russia expert at the Dutch Clingendael Institute, said the importance of this week’s diplomatic coup will last beyond the Syrian crisis. “The Russians were on the sidelines,” he said. “The Kerry statement didn’t just get them back in the game, it brought them back in a position of strength. Why did Putin push so hard for matters to be determined in the Unit-
ed Nations Security Council? Because there alone, two decades after the collapse of his Soviet Union, was he still a superpower.” New York Times columnist Bill Keller noted the irony on his blog this week. Through the chemical weapons proposal Putin “has recast Russia — whose military helped the Assad dynasty create its chemical weapons program in the first place — as the global peacemaker.” It’s a moment Putin has been waiting on for a while. The former head of the Soviet Union’s spy agency, the KGB, Putin in 2005 famously declared that “the demise of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century.”

Bridgewater poses difficult challenge for Cats Saturday Cardinals’ junior quarterback will test every facet of UK’s unproven defense Over the summer, the Ohio River Bridges Project closed several bridges in Louisville, causing countless headaches for commuters. But that’s nothing comALEX pared to FORKNER what the Cats are facKernel ing on Satcolumnist urday at Commonwealth Stadium. UK’s defense has the even bigger headache of trying to shut down Louisville junior quarterback Teddy
Bridgewater. Through the first two weeks of the season, the Heisman contender has completed 46-of-60 passes for 752 yards and nine touchdowns to just one interception. Not too shabby, right? Granted, those numbers could be slightly inflated considering they came against Ohio and Eastern Kentucky, but consider how Bridgewater fared against No. 4 Florida in January’s Sugar Bowl upset: 20-for-32, 266 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Furthermore, let’s look at what Bridgewater has done to UK the past two seasons. In 2011, freshmanversion Bridgewater entered
the game for the injured Will Stein and completed 10 of 18 passes for 108 yards. Not monster numbers, but Bridgewater’s two touchdown passes were enough to secure Louisville’s first Governor’s Cup victory in four years. Last season, Bridgewater displayed his surgical accuracy, completing 19 of 21 passes for 232 yards. None of those lasers found the endzone, but Louisville’s running backs scored four times that day. UK now faces its third matchup with Bridgewater, who is in contention to be selected No. 1 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft. “He’s obviously very ath-
letic, but then he’s just got a tremendous arm. He can get the ball to all the spots on the field, make all the throws. He’s got great vision, he sees everything on the field and he seems to always get the ball to the open spot,” UK head coach Mark Stoops said of Bridgewater. “He sees what you’re doing very quickly and obviously that comes from the experience that he has. He’s played an awful lot of football games. And then, he’s just very poised. He’s moving very quickly and all that, but it seems like the game’s in slow motion for h im.” So how does UK stop this football-playing cyborg with telescopic eyes and a howitzer arm? “They are a very multiple offense,” defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot said about the Cardinals. “You’ve got to
make sure that you’re sound in everything you do within your game plan, because you’re going to get a lot of different looks.” Bridgewater presents a challenge for all three levels of a defense. He can elude th e initial pass rush, buying himself more time to throw, or running when necessary. He’s able to find holes between linebackers in zone coverage. The secondary is tasked with tracking wide receivers for extended amounts of time and must try to defend pinpoint passes. Members of all three levels of UK’s defense offered keys to successfully defending one of the best QBs in the nation. “The main thing us defensive linemen have to work on is our rushing lanes,” senior defensive tackle Mister Cobble said. “Just keep him
in the pocket, keep him contained, keep him pressured.” “You’ve got to take good angles when you’re blitzing,” senior linebacker Avery Williamson said. “You’ve got to disrupt his throwing pattern; that’s the biggest thing.” “Execute, fly to the ball,” sophomore cornerback Cody Quinn said, who will see his first action of the season on Saturday after missing the last two weeks with a high ankle sprain. “Just playing with an edge and doing that for all four quarters.” Bridgewater poses a major challenge for a UK defense still working to find its way. Progress was made last week, strength of opponent notwithstanding. Come Saturday, the Cats are hoping their play will take its toll on Bridgewater.

Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver Randall Cobb picks up a first down against the Minnesota Vikings on Dec. 2 at Lambeau Field.
Randall Cobb shines in Packers’ loss to 49ers Former Cat records 7 catches for 108 yards and a touchdown By Ben Tompkins firstname.lastname@example.org
Several former Cats played key roles for their teams in week one of the National Football League. Denver Broncos linebacker Danny Trevathan started at outside linebacker in a 49-27 win over the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday. On his way to four solo tackles, Trevathan nabbed a Joe Flacco pass and as he was crossing the goal line after a 29-yard interception return, Trevathan dropped the ball prematurely and the ball fell in the end-zone. Upon further review, the play was ruled a touchback and the Ravens gained possession. Denver middle linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who started alongside Trevathan, made 10 total tackles, and would also record half of a sack. Woodyard however left Thursday's game against the Ravens with an apparent leg injury, the Baltimore Sun reported, and according to Ro-
toWire.com, Woodyard is listed as questionable for week two. In Green Bay, wide receiver Randall Cobb hauled in seven receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown. Packers’ punter Tim Masthay punted six times, averaging 44.8 yards with a long of 51 yards. The 49ers handed them a loss in the first game of the year, 34-28. Buffalo wide receiver Steve Johnson started against New England after missing two preseason games due to a hamstring injury, per ESPN. Johnson’s three catches for 39 yards and a touchdown included a 13-yard completion, but the Bills fell to the Patriots, 23-21. Carolina offensive guard Garry Williams exited the game with a knee injury in the first quarter. Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer reported that, after MRI results came back, Williams tore his ACL and MCL in his left knee. Around the rest of the
league, Atlanta Falcons defensive tackle Corey Peters recorded a sack and six combined tackles. Of his tackles, three were solo and three were assisted. Arizona Cardinals running back Alfonso Smith ran for 29 yards on 10 carries in the Cardinals’ loss to the St. Louis Rams. Smith’s longest run of the day was seven yards. Larry Warford made his starting debut at right guard for the Detroit Lions on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Rotowire.com reported that the Cardinals placed defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin on injured reserve Aug. 31 with a shoulder injury that will end his season. UK’s third and final product in Denver, tight end Jacob Tamme, played on Thursday but did not record a catch. Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that Cincinnati Bengals defensive end DeQuin Evans is currently serving an eight-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. Evans was suspended for four games as a member of the Bengals’ practice squad in 2011 when he was a rookie.
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M didn’t have issues like a year ago. Too many TV trucks. Too little parking. Quarterback Johnny Manziel avoiding the media at the advice of his attorneys instead of the mandate of his coach. CBS implementing a “Johnny Cam” for the sole purpose of catching everything Manziel does, in the game at least, on camera. But the trappings are a result of how far the Aggies have come, thanks to their 11-2 SEC invasion a season ago, leaping into the national conversation particularly with their victory over No. 1 Alabama last November in Tuscaloosa. When the topranked Crimson Tide visits Kyle Field on Saturday for the rematch, it will be the No. 6 Aggies’ biggest test yet in how they’ve handled the success. “We’re in Year 2,” coach Kevin Sumlin said. “For this to be a game of this magnitude in our second year in the league tells you we’re on the right track. And we have to keep on climbing.” Sumlin knows much of the ascent is due to Manziel, who Sumlin said will not address the media this week at the request of his family and counsel. The Heisman Trophy winner met with reporters in a short postgame interview after last week’s win over Sam Houston State, but he hasn’t been talking publicly otherwise since an NCAA investigation into allegations he sold autographs. Sumlin said the time will come when Manziel is available again.
Sumlin wasn’t as keen on CBS zooming in on everything Manziel. “Everything we try to do … it’s about building our team, our program and not being an individual,” Sumlin said. “Saturday afternoon, you’re going to have two football teams on the field. I just don’t understand why there’s got to be one guy singled out. … All the criticism about individualism on a football team, I don’t think this helps enhance the team concept one bit.” Sumlin has been steady in his protection of Manziel and the team, which has probably helped all the Aggies navigate through the attention intact. Senior running back Ben Malena of Cedar Hill, Texas, used Sumlin’s buzz word — consistent — to describe how A&M is approaching Alabama, as it does each opponent. But he’s embracing the hugeness of the game, as A&M and Manziel did last season when there was nothing to lose. “It was a stage for the whole world to see what kind of player he is,” Malena said of Manziel. “He deserved it, along with his team. We deserved to be put on a stage to really show what we can do and what he can do. This Saturday is a similar stage. The world is going to see how he’s progressed, along with the whole team.” A&M is focusing again this week on tempo. As in the go-go-go-go kind that Alabama coach Nick Saban isn’t fond of. “We know it got on their nerves last year,” said receiver Malcome Kennedy.
The first-team defense is mostly back together after suspensions and injuries, though Sumlin said safety Floyd Raven (collarbone) is out Saturday. The Aggies (2-0) were vulnerable to the run in their opening victories. Cornerback Deshazor Everett allowed that opponents may be eager to attack the so-far-shaky defense, “but we can only progress,” he said. “I’m not going to say they’ve seen the real defense.” As for being underdogs at home? “I mean, it’s Alabama,” said Everett, who grabbed the game-sealing interception last season. “Some people think it was a fluke, and they’re a good team. We’re going to go in thinking we can beat anybody, but we can’t go in thinking we’re just going to run over them. It is Alabama.” In learning to handle success, A&M needs look no farther than Saturday’s opponent, winner of three of the last four BCS titles, which also at least talked this week of a businesslike approach into the muchhyped game. “It’s hard to argue that they’re not the standard in college football,” Sumlin said. And that’s what gives A&M the opportunity Saturday to prove Alabama’s not the only team that can sustain success. “The fans are really happy; I’m glad they’re happy,” said offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi of Allen. “I’m glad we put ourselves in this situation. But we have to go into this the same, it’s business. We got to win and just keep trucking after that.”

The life and death of student tailgating UK President Eli Capilouto’s 2012 prohibition of alcohol in the tailgating areas along Cooper Drive caused quite a stir on campus. But this year, no one seems to be shaken or stirred about the issue. Are the alcohol-soaked tailgates, like last year’s infamous episode at the UK versus Western Kentucky University game that motivated Capilouto’s ban, a thing of the past? If so, should they stay there? Let’s start by considering the tailgating scene during the game versus Miami University (Ohio) last Saturday. The crowd was far smaller and tamer than those that have tailgated the past few
years. It was certainly a social atmosphere, and it was not completely dry. But comparatively, the view looked a lot different than seasons in recent history. To be fair, we know several factors contributed to the quiet atmosphere. First off, it can be difficult to rouse college students for games with a noon kickoff. A tailgate typically starts a few hours before the game starts, and for college students that’s a few hours of lost sleep. The UK football team was also matching up against a sub-par team. The fandom at that game will not even be on the same playing field as the horde that will
be at Saturday’s game against the University of Louisville. Even so, the biggest environment change factor is the university’s new tailgating policy. Student organizations are now required to reserve tailgating space through the Student Center Director’s Office no later than noon on the Wednesday before a game. Student Government is tasked with assigning the 14 available spots. It was said before the first game that UK Police will monitor alcohol distribution. Last Saturday, 11 of the 14 spots were reserved by organizations, said UK
Where there is a grill there is a way Listen up, hungry freshmen and seniors alike. Although Lexington isn’t exactly the culinary capital of the world, there are still some great eateries around campus. For those trying to avoid the freshman 15, sophomore 20 and so on, there exists The Weekly Juicery and The Local Taco. Both restaurants offer their fair share of leafy greens, lean meats and fruits. ADDISON The Weekly Juicery, CAINE located on Old Vine Contributing Street, presses its juices columnist fresh daily. Its menu options include everything from green juices to smoothies in the $7.50-9.50 range. Nothing gets me going on a Saturday morning quite like their Pineapple Passion. If you enjoy buying local and eating Mexican, The Local Taco on South Limestone receives much of it its grains, meats and veggies from local farmers. A dinner taco basket, one of the most popular menu items, runs about $8.75, depending on your choices of tacos and sides. One of their main draws for me is the Bang Bang Sauce, which is the perfect mixture of spicy and sweet. It’s seriously incredible. Those interested in something different will be happy to hear about the new lobster roll restaurant in town, Clawdaddy’s. Clawdaddy’s on North Broadway offers the best in seafood rolls, serving up only the finest shellfish directly from Maine. Their Maine Lobster Roll costs about $16, making it one of the pricier items on the menu, but also one of their best. If you’re into Cajun cuisine, Bourbon n’ Toulouse off Euclid in Chevy Chase is always a crowd pleaser. They serve up delicious jambalaya and chicken etouffée in both full and half orders. The half order
costs $4.50 and a full order costs $6.50, but the half order is enough for one person. Bourbon n’ Toulouse also offers a gluten free menu that’s almost as long as their regular one. And we can’t discuss restaurants without diving into the various pizza and burger joints around town. Pazzo’s, a Lexington favorite, has some of the best pretzels and pizza that the town has to offer. When eating at this South Limestone joint, start off with three Pazzo’s Pretzels for $3.75, and then follow up with a medium Bourbon Bootlegger Pizza for $16.75. Pazzo’s also has an impressive selection of brews on tap, which includes about 47 different types of domestic and imported ales, lagers and IPAs. If you’d rather follow a pretzel with a burger instead of craft beer and pizza, then right next door to Pazzo’s is another famed Lexington restaurant, Hugh Jass Burgers. With that name, you can’t expect anything less than huge portions and impressive mounds of French Fries, right? Their 10ounce burgers come with your choice of a side and drink for about $11, again depending on your choice of toppings and sides. Of course, I always go for sweet potato fries and iced tea. Both Pazzo’s and Hugh Jass Burgers have huge outdoor patios, perfect for summer hangout sessions with friends. Lexington might not be the culinary capital of the world, but honestly the people eating fine French cuisine don't know what they're missing. What we lack in gourmet and expensive dishes is made up for in amazing restaurants that give family and friends the chance to come together and just hangout, whether it’s at 1 a.m. on a Saturday night or 2 p.m. on a Wednesday afternoon. If you’re like me, you’ll take your Bourbon Bootlegger pizza and Pineapple Passion juice over the fancy stuff any day. firstname.lastname@example.org
letter to the editor
No guns, no safety Recently the UK Police Department has made several changes to attempt to increase security on campus. While these new policies and equipment are great for notification and locating an active shooter on campus for instance, they do nothing to prevent such acts from occurring. That is not to say that UKPD is doing a bad job, for no one can predict when such evil acts will occur. UK needs to realize that there is a difference between feeling safe and being safe. Officer Saylor of the UKPD said, “You [students] are the first line of defense, not the police,” at a safety forum this past spring. So, it stands to reason that students should have the capability to protect themselves. For some time now, Students for Concealed Carry has pushed for universities to allow students with Concealed Carry permits, to be allowed to carry concealed on campus without penalty from the university. It is not illegal to carry concealed on UK’s campus with a permit, but it is a viola-
tion of university policy, and UK can expel you for violating it. Those with CCP’s have: listened to four different attorneys instruct them on gun and self defense laws, been taught proper gun safety, passed a knowledge test, passed an accuracy test, have passed numerous state and federal background checks and are at least 21 years old. The “No Guns Allowed” signs posted around campus serve, not as a deterrent to potential shooters but rather as an invitation to them. Those who would shoot innocent people, often prefer no resistance or retaliatory gunfire. My right to protect myself should not stop at the campus property line. For as we have all too often seen, those who would do us harm seldom stop there. If you are interested in getting involved, contact SCC to help push for a safer campus.

spokeswoman Gail Hairston. Thirteen spots have been reserved for this Saturday. The fact that space is being left empty for what is arguably UK’s biggest game of the year is indicative of how little hype now surrounds UK tailgating, which used to bring such joy to so many Cat fans in the fall. It is understandable why organizations would be skeptical of reserving space through the university. Throughout the week, students put forth countless hours of hard work toward their academics and the organizations stuents are involved in. By the time the weekend comes, students are
ready to relax. Attending football games has always seemed like a great way to do so. But with the university placing rules and restrictions on how students can go about tailgating, it takes away a good deal of the fun, and makes the event feel more like we’re being babysat. We understand that university officials feel obligated to keep its students safe, but urge them to remember how they felt at age 18. We are all capable of taking care of ourselves. Perhaps starting a dialogue with students about how to stay safe during tailgates is a better option. That being said, we have
some words of wisdom for frustrated students. While the Kernel advise university officials to consider its policy, suggest students be patient. UK is in the midst of a major transformation. Not only is the football program undergoing major changes, but UK’s alcohol policy is being reevaluated as well. The Kernel hopes that as the football team improves and alcohol regulations are reconsidered, UK tailgating will become something that people truly look forward to again. After the chaos that ensued last season, embrace the silence and prepare for a brighter future. firstname.lastname@example.org
Misogynistic mind games One day during my sophomore year of high school our lunch table received a new member. She plopped down her tray, “Do the vending machines here sell gobstoppers?” “No.” She wasn’t dismayed. “Crap. Well, I have a story for you anyway.” Gobstopper began regaling us with all of her sexual conquests, including the amazingELEANOR ly explicit way in HASKEN which she gained her name. In short, it inKernel volved the popular columnist Willy Wonka brand candy, for which she is named, and some improvisation with a member of the same sex. After that my table unanimously passed a resolution to move to the farthest regions of the cafeteria, solely to avoid sitting with the promiscuous girl with the candy name. As an unwise highschool student, I didn’t realize how devastating our actions were that day. By completely disowning this young girl who was open about her sexuality, I was singlehandedly forcing feminism to take two steps back. What I did is known as slut-shaming. About.com defines slut-shaming on their Women’s Issues section as: the deliberate act of calling a woman a slut, a whore or impugning her character in sexual terms in order to embarrass, humiliate, intimidate, degrade or shame her for actions or behaviors that are a normal part of female sexuality. This can also extend to choices of dress or birth control. Now that I’m older, I can’t help but ask questions about my behavior on that day. Why did I hate on her for her sexual freedom? Is that not what our female forebearers fought for? Women in the ‘60s were burning their bras to prove that women needed to be free of sexual constraint. My mother is on the forefront of female empowerment, defending female sexual assault victims at every opportunity. Meanwhile, I was moving four tables over to escape someone’s sexual freedom. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed more and more women on campus committing slutshaming. If I’m waiting in White Hall Classroom Building for class to begin I’ll hear women talk about their slutty roommate, who came home late because she was out with a man. Or about how her friend made her go buy condoms with her because she was scared to do so alone. Meanwhile, if I’m seated next to a group of men, smirks and high fives will be
passed around depending on who had sex last night. According to the Guttmacher Institute, more than 99 percent of women between the ages of 15 – 44 that have had sexual intercourse have used at least one method of birth control. Yet if a condom or birth control falls out of a woman’s bag, she blushes and immediately shoves it out of sight. This simple act is a microcosm of the whole debate. We live in a world that has been classically perceived as being controlled by men. However, the sex ratio is almost equal – according to geohive.com the ratio is 102:100 men to women. Obviously, this perceived inequality is currently holding women back. Women believe that we must continue to be virginal for our future husbands, meanwhile they are allowed to go out and experiment with whoever they want. How does this sound fair? These ideas are archaic, dating back to ancient traditions where men were significantly older than their female brides. Female sexuality is our sexuality. We should be allowed to use it in any way we wish. As I’ve grown older, I’ve come in contact with society trying to hold me back. I’ve been told to not walk home alone, it won’t be safe without a man. I’ve been told to dress modestly, or else a man could lose control and rape me. The last thing I need is to be told that I have no right to be a sexual, solely because I am a woman. What would happen in a world where women were able to talk about their sexual conquests freely? Would male sexual experiences be less valuable? Hardly. Men’s sexuality would not be affected by the freedom of women. According to advocatesforyouth.org, 68.8 percent of women aged 18 – 19 have had sexual intercourse compared to only 64.3 percent of men in the same age range, so why is it so taboo to discuss our sexual preferences? If more women in the world are out there having sex, you would think we’d be more open to discussing it. If I could go back in time and talk to Gobstopper, I’d apologize for my ignorance. I’d encourage her to be an open and free woman, but to be smart in her choices. I’d place importance in choosing safe partners and practicing birth control over pretending your sexuality doesn’t exist. Enjoy your gobstoppers, just do so safely.
