Suicide survivors share experiences Expert says suicide more common than people expect By Will Wright wwright@kykernel.com

When someone dies by suicide, they often leave behind friends and family who spend years trying to cope with the loss. About 30 of those people, called suicide survivors, shared their stories and emo-

tions in the W. T. Young Library on Saturday. The event was one of many around the world for International Survivors of Suicide Day. Providing a place to share the common bond of death is meant to give comfort in an informal, judgment-free atmosphere, said Julie Cerel, associate professor in the Col-

lege of Social Work. Cerel, who has specialized in suicide prevention and bereavement, said people don’t realize how common suicide is and how many people are affected by it. In Cerel’s research, she found that about 40 percent of Kentuckians said they had been affected by sui-

cide. About two times as many people die from suicide in America every year as people who die from homicide, she said. College students have especially high suicide rates. For college-aged students, suicide is the second-leading cause of death, according to the UK Counseling Center website. Cerel said when a student dies by suicide, especially

when they live in a residence hall, it can have a devastating emotional impact on a large number of people. “Suicide loss brings about traumatic grief,” said Paula Rymer, a social worker at Community Hospice. “It brings about complicated grief.” Though Cerel said rates are high among college students, she also said it is hard to gather data on exactly how

many die every year because of the lack of research funding. She did not know how many have died in the residence halls of UK. On Saturday after watching a documentary about the grieving process, many gathered in a circle for a healing ceremony where they shared the name of their loved one and how that person impacted their lives.

Majoring on the field Senior becomes leader as Marching Band drum major By Michael Reaves news@kykernel.com

Members of the Wildcat Marching Band work long hours before and during football season, and at the helm is one woman who has worked her way up from being a student marcher. Rachel Hoiby, a music education senior, is a drum major who conducts and

leads the 260-person marching band. Originally from Denton, Texas, Hoiby was the high school drum major as well. At UK, she has moved up the ranks from a marcher to the leader of the group. “It takes dedication, a strong work ethic and passion to be a good drum major,” Hoiby said. “It’s the

UK offers free airport shuttles Students can request a ride for Thanksgiving break For students traveling for the holiday break, UK Parking and Transportation Services will be offering a free shuttle to Blue Grass Airport Monday through Wednesday. Students who want to use this service for Thanksgiving, winter and spring breaks can send PTS an email with their name, campus address, phone number and pick-up time. Students must request a pick up 48 hours in advance, said Chrissie Tune, spokeswoman for PTS. Tune said students will receive an email confirmation for their pick-up time, but depending on availability, it may not be the exact request time. It’s based on a “firstcome, first-serve” basis, she said. The airport shuttle is in its 10th year running and Tune said they expect 40 to 50 students to use the shuttle for Thanksgiving break. PTS uses its regular vehi-

cles and usual staff for the service. The service cost comes from PTS’ yearly budget. PTS is now accepting reservations for winter break as well. The winter shuttle runs Dec. 17 to 20. STAFF REPORT

Scott Atchison for further advice. She also works with two assistant drum majors. The drum major role requires hours of work. The season as a whole is “frontloaded,” meaning the first few weeks are the “most

hectic of the year,” Hoiby said. Band members come to campus a week before class begins for the semester and go through what is known as “early week,” where members attend the five day band camp.

Volleyball celebrates seniors, loses to No. 4 Missouri By Kyle Arensdorf karensdorf@kykernel.com

It was a day of mixed emotions on Sunday as the UK volleyball team suffered a 15-25, 20-25, 16-25 sweep at the hands of No. 4 University of Missouri on the Cats’ senior day. The match was preceded by a ceremony for the four UK seniors Whitney Billings, Alexandra Morgan, Jessi Greenberg and Desirre’ Wilkerson. A large TV screen showed highlights from all four seniors throughout their careers. As the video drew to a close, the players were escorted by their families to the center of the court to receive recognition from UK head coach Craig Skinner. “It was a great celebration of four players that have made a huge impact on this program,” Skinner said. “I don’t know the numbers, but they were able to be successful in many matches in their careers and make a huge impact. They were a

pleasure to coach every day.” After the ceremonies, the game commenced as Missouri was looking to maintain its perfect 31-0

overall record. “Not a ton of positives (from the match) today,” Skinner said. “The seniors that were in the match were fighting, but just not execut-

ing at the level that we needed them to.” Mistakes hindered the Cats throughout the set and with an errant hit by sophoSee VOLLEYBALL on page 2

The Cats held a number of small leads in the second set, and found themselves within one point on Missouri, 17-18. The effort was short-lived, as Missouri went on a 7-3 run to seize the second set. After two sets, Kan and Missouri senior outside hitter Lisa Henning had garnered double-digit kills, 11 and 10, respectively. “(Kan and Henning) are very smart players and you have to have a game plan of what you want to do and they were able to do the opposite today,” Skinner said. The Cats lost the final set, 16-25, behind more kills

from Henning. She finished the game with 17 total. “I feel like we laid down in the third (set),” Billings said. “I thought we could

Shoppers camp out for holiday deals By Paula Schleis Akron Beacon Journal (MCT)

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — A full 10 days before Best Buy opens its doors for special Thanksgiving sales, Jonas Allooh was in line. On Monday, he pitched his 10-man tent just to the left of the front doors and fired up his gas generator and space heater. “This is the first time I’ve been first,” said the 28-yearold. By the next day, he had company. Tony Regec _ who was first in line last year _ set up a second tent. Regec “came earlier than he had planned to because he saw the other tent was here,” said Regec’s parents, Ed and Janet of Akron, Ohio, who were holding down the fort while their son made a run for more supplies.

Still, he doesn’t mind. “It builds excitement for us,” he said. “It’s kind of the culture of our business.” Parker said employees will check on their temporary residents from time to time. “We don’t want anything bad to happen to them on our watch,” he said. “But they’re professionals. They know what they’re doing.” In addition to a generator and space heater, Allooh’s home-away-from-home has a bed, a microwave oven, a laptop computer, a TV and a game console. Regec’s digs will be suited up similarly by the time he’s done, his parents said. Allooh expects to have plenty of company.

likely to attempt suicide themselves, Cerel said. But there is still not much research into helping the bereaved. “There really isn’t money for this kind of research,” she said. “I’m one of the few internationally … doing this type of work.” Cerel said some of that is because companies do not want their name on a donor list for suicide research because of the social stigma that exists about suicide and their family and friends. In the 1970s people were reluctant to talk openly about breast cancer in a similar way that people today are reluctant to talk about suicide, she said. Companies have no problem giving money to breast cancer awareness charities because the social stigma about breast cancer has drastically diminished over the past 40

He said the store requires one person be present at the tent at all times, but that the tent reserves a space for 10 in line. “We’ll play board games and keep pretty active,” he said. Allooh said he recently graduated from a college program and is currently unemployed, so he’s free to handle the third shift alone. He slept years, Cerel said. “My hope is that the stigma around suicide goes away in the same way (as breast cancer),” she said. “I think society is becoming more open about mental health and suicide.” Rymer said the stigma comes partially from a want to blame someone for the death because it was intentional. “During bereavement … people carry that guilt,” Rymer said. “People say, ‘They chose to die.’ (But) we’re finding, by talking to survivors, that many people had an undiagnosed mental illness.” To talk to someone about suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1800-273-TALK (8255).

It usually rounds out to be an eight- to 10-hour day depending on how long the game goes. Hoiby tries to improve by memorizing three full marching shows and their scores as well as learning around 30 scores for pep band songs. “You’re a leader by empowering others,” she said, “and being there to serve other people in your band not just yourself.”

JERUSALEM — Israeli leaders on Sunday condemned the interim deal reached between six world powers and Iran to temporarily freeze that country’s nuclear program, saying the agreement did not impede Tehran’s ability to produce a nuclear weapon. “What was achieved last night in Geneva is not a historic agreement, but a historic mistake,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said in public remarks at the start of the weekly meeting of his Cabinet. “Today the world has become a much more dangerous place, because the most dangerous regime in the world has taken a significant step toward acquiring the world’s most dangerous weapon.” The six-month deal requires Iran to curb its nuclear activities in return for limited relief from economic sanctions, but allows it to continue enriching uranium at low levels, sufficient for energy production but not enough to make atomic bombs. Netanyahu said the accord, which is supposed to provide a pause for negotiations of a comprehensive pact, is “the first time that leading world powers have agreed to uranium enrichment in Iran.” He said that sanctions “are being removed in return for cosmetic Iranian concessions that can be nullified in weeks.” “Israel is not obligated by this agreement,” Netanyahu declared, again raising the prospect of an Israeli military strike against Iran’s nuclear program, which he has called an existential threat to his country. “The regime in Iran is committed to the

destruction of Israel, and Israel has the right and duty to defend itself, by itself, against any threat.” Other members of Netanyahu’s Cabinet were equally critical. Yuval Steinitz, the strategic affairs minister, said the agreement “does not roll back Iran’s military enrichment capability, but only freezes it in its current status.” He compared the accord to failed agreements with North Korea to curb its nuclear program. Under the accord reached early Sunday, Iran agreed not to install any new centrifuges for uranium enrichment or start any that are not already working, or build new enrichment facilities. Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, recently reinstated after being cleared in a corruption case, told Israel Radio that the deal was “the greatest diplomatic victory for the Iranians perhaps since the Khomeini revolution,” a reference to Iran’s Islamic revolution in 1979. Contrasting the accord with the recent agreement to disarm Syria of its chemical weapons, Lieberman noted that the deal with Iran did not require the dismantling of the centrifuges, nor did it require removal of fissile material from the country. The accord requires that the Iranian stockpile enriched to 20 percent, within striking distance of weapons-grade fuel, be diluted or converted so it could not be used for military purposes. Iran has consistently maintained that its nuclear program is solely for civilian use. Israel had pressed Washington to reach an agreement that would totally halt Iran’s enrichment program, a step the Iranians ruled out as a deal-breaker.

Would a death of a president today cause America sorrow? MATT YOUNG

Kernel columnist

I was not alive when Lee Harvey Oswald pulled the trigger; but one need not witness an event to understand the significance of it. If 9/11 is our generation’s defining moment, assassinating Jack Kennedy was the baby boomers’. President John F. Kennedy was not the first president to fall at the hands of an assassin, but he was the first in the era of instant media. Americans turned on a box at home and watched the president die. Friday was the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination, and those of us not yet born in that time period had a chance to immerse ourselves in the footage, the news reports and the commentary, and experience it almost as if we had been there. As I did this I could not help but notice what a different world we live in today — not because there was no Twittersphere to blow up as the shot rang out in Dealey

Plaza, but because almost universally, the nation was heartbroken by the murder of the man simply known as Jack. We were a united people. In our world, 24-hour propaganda stations and talk radio masquerading as news manipulate their listeners to make money and spike ratings.

The collective sorrow of America at the death of a leader would not occur today.” MATT YOUNG

Too many people take what they hear as fact when it so often is not. These stations do nothing but reinforce often false, preconceived notions, and the result is a divided nation. The collective sorrow of America at the death of our leader would not occur today. According to Public Policy Polling, 13 percent of American voters believe

Barack Obama is the antichrist; they do not just oppose him, they openly hope for his demise. It is more likely we would have 10 to 20 percent of the nation openly celebrating the assassination of President Obama, or a few years ago, President Bush. The fact that we used to be “one nation under God” who believed that “united we stand” and “e pluribus unum” were more than just archaic campaign slogans says more about America 50 years after President Kennedy was shot than any other one thing could. Last week also marked the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. How tragically poetic that the same political atmosphere, which led to the assassination of Abraham Lincoln, exists again today. We can only hope we do not divide into another civil war. Many in the South celebrated Lincoln’s murder, as many would also do today for our president. If you think that is acceptable, well, you don’t know Jack.

Cats have advantage in rebounds, size Team has to control the boards against Cleveland State By Nick Gray ngray@kykernel.com

When Cleveland State University comes to Rupp Arena to face UK on Monday, the Cats will have an advantage in size and rebounding. However, UK head coach John Calipari said his team still has work to do to control the boards.

“There’s two ways of doing it,” Calipari said on Friday. “This is the easier way and this is the harder way. Right now, this group has been used to the easier way. We’ve got to get them out of that mode.” UK is fourth in the country in rebounding at 48 per game, while the Cats’ opponents this season have grabbed 63 offensive rebounds, including 33 in the

last two games. Cleveland State has 75 offensive rebounds through five games. Cleveland State averages 38.4 rebounds per game, good for 112th in the country. The team is led by 6-foot-7-inch senior Jon Harris (6.4 rebounds per game) and 6-foot-8-inc h sophomore Anton Grady (5.8 rebounds per game). Three UK players have grabbed eight or more rebounds per game, including freshman forward Julius Randle, who ranks second

in the country with 13.4 rebounds per contest. UK freshman center Dakari Johnson is fourth on the team in rebounds. Johnson has pulled down 4.2 rebounds per game in an average of 13 minutes of playing time per contest. In rebounding per40 minutes, the 7-foot center averages 12.72. “He’s got to grab balls with two hands,” Calipari said. “He’s got to be more athletic, which means be more alert before you guard

and before you catch the ball. Don’t bring the ball down. Get it up to the goal and keep your hands up. You’re seven foot tall and you’ve got long arms.” Calipari used the days after the Michigan State University game two weeks ago to talk about completing possessions. His players are saying the same. “Even though it’s easy to step on defense, you have to play throughout the whole possession,” Johnson said.

UK’s 3 fumbles contribute to 59-17 loss University of Georgia dominates, Whitlow injured

Three lost fumbles by UK helped lead to the University of Georgia’s 59-17 win on Saturday, in the second to last game of UK’s season. Georgia (7-4, 5-3 SEC) controlled the game, amassing 602 total yards compared to the 211 by UK (2-9, 0-7 SEC). The Bulldogs scored 21 straight points in the first quarter and never trailed. UK sophomore running back Dyshawn Mobley scored the Cats first points with a 69-yard touchdown run. Prior to the touchdown, Mobley had 65 rushing yards on the year. Mobley was the Cats’ most productive runner, who finished the game with 10 carries for 92 yards and a touchdown. UK sophomore quarter-

back Jalen Whitlow started the game, but was injured on UK’s second offensive possession and replaced by sophomore Maxwell Smith. Smith completed 10-of-16 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown. Smith’s lone touchdown throw went to junior wide receiver Javess Blue. Blue led UK with five receptions for 93 yards. The score came with 3:54 remaining in the game. It was the final score of the game. Freshman Jojo Kemp got the start for the Cats instead of UK senior running back Raymond Sanders. Kemp finished the game with eight carries for five yards. Sanders finished with one carry for zero yards. All three Georgia touchdowns in the first quarter were thrown by senior quar-

terback Aaron Murray on the Bulldogs’ first three possessions. Murray threw another touchdown in the second quarter before going down with a knee injury. Murray’s replacement, junior Hutson Mason, led a scoring drive just before halftime. On the drive, he completed four-of-five passes for 57 yards. The drive ended with a 24-yard touchdown screen pass to sophomore running back Todd Gurley. Mason finished with 189 yards and one touchdown, completing 13-of-19 throws. UK will complete its season Saturday, Nov. 30, against the University of Tennessee at 7 p.m. in Commonwealth Stadium. STAFF REPORT

Women’s soccer loses 2nd round of NCAA Cats end their season, fall to UCLA, 3-0

For the second-straight year, the UK women’s soccer season comes to an end in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at the hands of the University of California Los Angeles. The Cats (14-7-1, 7-5-0 SEC) lost 3-0 on Friday night to the No. 2 Bruins (19-1-2, 9-0-2 Pac-12). Much like last year, UK was scoreless in their second round matchup with UCLA; they fell to the Bruins in a 5-0 shutout loss in the 2012 NCAA Tournament. UCLA came into this year’s match sporting a .324 goals-against average, the third-best in the nation. The shutout marked the fourth time UK had been held scoreless this season. The Bruins grabbed an early lead on the Cats with a goal coming in the first five minutes of the match.

UCLA junior defender Caprice Dydasco scored her first goal of the season when she fired a longrange goal past UK senior g oalkeeper Kayla King to put the Bruins on the board. UK held UCLA to that one goal for the rest of the first half, remaining within striking distance. UCLA did not score again until the 71st minute when sophomore forward Courtney Proctor scored her third goal of the season and put her team up 2-0. UCLA scored again nearly 10 minutes later when Dydasco added another goal to her total, giving the Bruins a 3-0 lea d and putting the match out of reach for the Cats.
