President Eli Capilouto and Mayor Jim Gray were among those who celebrated Arbor Day at the UK Arboretum on Saturday. The event included activi-
ties, giveaways and a ceremony that assured that the Arboretum will be around for at least 70 more years. Capilouto and Gray made an agreement that the Arboretum will remain through 2086. The pair also helped children shovel the first scoops of
soil during the Tree Ceremony to kick off the event. “The trees are a green thread, a green necklace,” Capilouto said, “that will carry the beauty and spirit throughout campus.” More than 40 exhibitors educated citizens about tree
care, local plants, gardening and much more. One booth gave away free trees. The Children’s Garden was filled with smiles and laughter as kids splashed around in streams and took part in activities like tree cookie art, binocular finding and
Harrisons add wealth of experience Sophomore guards join large, talented 2014-15 team DAVID SCHUH
For the last five years, UK’s recruiting class has directly dictated the team’s expectations. The better the freshmen coming to Lexington, the higher the Cats would land in the preseason rankings. That is until now, when the No. 2 recruiting class in the country is filled with 2014 high school seniors who will begin next season as relative afterthoughts. When freshmen guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison announced Friday they would return for another year, head coach John Calipari immediately found himself with the most talented team of his career. The expectations, somehow, will be greater than that of this season, when the sport’s best recruiting class ever sparked some 40-0 discussions. Everyone believed that nearly all of the players
would be “one-and-dones.” The hype that will surround Calipari’s sixth UK team is unique given how unexpected the returners’ decisions were. Even after the Cats went to the 2014 National Championship game, the NBA Draft stock of several players had already shrunk during an underwhelming regular season. So when the Harrisons, along with fellow freshmen Dakari Johnson and Marcus Lee and sophomores Alex Poythress and Willie Cauley-Stein, decided to return, another talented, young team became a talented one with championship experience. The Cats won’t just be skilled at every position. They’ll be the biggest team in college basketball. Only two of UK’s top 11 players will be shorter than 6 feet 6 inches. Five of those 11 are 6 feet 9 inches or taller. No exaggeration, no hyperbole — the Cats will be bigger than many NBA teams. All that talent comes with the memory of a national title run that fell just
puppet shows. Caroline Engle, an environmental science and agricultural economics sophomore, said the arboretum is a way for students to get plugged in to the community. “I personally think UK should have more students

come over to experience the nature here,” Engle said. Volunteer coordinator Dawn Bazner said Arbor Day is a way of showcasing the Arboretum for students. “It’s our way of saying ‘here we are,’” Bazner said, “‘Come and enjoy.’”
The eight women embraced as they smiled for their picture in front of Jewell Hall on Saturday, where they lived together as college freshmen 48 years ago. Affectionately known as the Jewell Gems, the ladies traveled from all over the country to see their dorm once more before it is demolished this summer. As a champagne bottle was cracked open, the women shared photos and stories of pranks and rule breaking from their days in the dorm. Earlier this year, Kathy Arnold Holland had called the newsroom wondering when Jewell Hall would be demolished. We began a conversation as Holland explained that she had lived in Jewell and wanted to see it one last time before it went down. Holland and her memories were the main focus of
a story I wrote in February about the residence hall. She had mentioned the women were gathering in April to celebrate, and I was excited about the chance to meet them. Some of the eight ladies were original Jewell Gems; some were adopted from other halls like Keeneland, which is also coming down to make way for two new dorms. They came from Louisville, New York, New Hampshire, Colorado, Georgia and Ohio, among other places, to have a reunion. It wasn’t until I met the Jewell Gems this weekend that I began to understand the nostalgia they feel for their dorm. Though I don’t think I will ever be so sad to see Blanding (where I lived freshman year) go down, the Kernel newsroom is my Jewell Hall. So on Saturday, I did some reminiscing of my own. As my friend and I chatted with the women, we realized it would be us in 40 years outside of Grehan popSee ARETAKIS on page 3
Hunter S. Thompson to be honored By Will Wright firstname.lastname@example.org
Author and journalist Hunter S. Thompson has been inducted to the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame. A ceremony in The Grand Reserve in Lexington will induct the Louisville native, along with six others, on Tuesday. Thompson is best-known
for his coverage of the 1970 Kentucky Derby, “The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved,” as well as other articles and books including “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.” “I think the selection of Hunter Thompson is long overdue,” said David Hawpe, former editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal and the man who nominated Thompson
for the Hall of Fame. “He’s one of the most influential journalists of the post-World War II era.” Thompson is credited with popularizing and developing Gonzo journalism, a writing style that presents a story from the writer’s perspective. “I love the fact that he encouraged us to do experimental journalism,” Hawpe, a UK

trustee, said. “I think what Gonzo journalism did was prompt us to stretch, to reach, to do some things that we hadn’t been doing.” Duane Bonifer, president of the UK Journalism Alumni Association which sponsors the Hall of Fame, said that Thompson’s personality and beliefs differed from the norm See THOMPSON on page 3

Student organizations host fashion show Profits to fund future events for Merchandising, Apparel & Textiles Club, Hospitality Management Association By Jessica Ng email@example.com
Popular songs blasted from the speakers at the Color Me Spring Fashion Show, which showcased the newest “Day to Night” fashion trends at the E.S. Good Barn on Friday. The event was presented by the University of Kentucky Merchandising, Apparel & Textiles Club and the Hospitality Management Association. The evening included refreshments and a silent auction started off the evening. The show was presented in two parts, “day” and “night” outfits. The 23 “day” outfits featured floral and tribal prints, denim, lace overlays and pastel outfits provided by select local boutiques. The 20 “night” looks highlighted shimmer, stripes, lace and frills. Hats and various acces-
sories accompanied both female and male looks. UK alumni and students, fashionistas and network professionals in the Lexington community attended the event. “One of my best friends is a merchandising major, so I came here to support her, and I also really like fashion and clothes,” said sophomore Jessica Dias, a psychology major. The break provided a smooth transition for the “Day to Night” theme, with the announcement of silent auction and raffle winners, plus prize-drawing for a basketball signed by the past season’s UK basketball players. A final walk by all models closed out the evening. The show itself wran about 30 minutes. “It was exhilarating. It’s always a blast,” said Katie Hahnel, a merchandising, ap-
parel and textiles junior who acted as one of the models. “A lot of the models are the MAT girls because they have the interest in the fashion industry,” said Hospitality Management Association president Colleen Haggarty. Color Me Spring keeps its name every year, but the “night garden” atmosphere in the room made this show different than the rest, Haggarty said. Profits from the fashion show will go toward future events, she added. Sponsors of the event included Target, American Campus Communities and University of Kentucky Federal Credit Union, according to the event’s program. All of the pieces featured in the show went back to the boutiques after the show ended, Haggarty said, and a boutique’s availability to lend clothing is key for the fashion show to succeed.

Lack of federal water may hurt pot growers By Rob Hotakainen McClatchy Washington Bureau
WASHINGTON - Newly licensed marijuana growers in Washington state may find themselves without a key source of water just as spring planting gets underway. Federal officials say they'll decide quickly whether the U.S. government can provide water for the growers or whether doing so would violate the federal Controlled Substances Act, which makes possession of the drug illegal.
The U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which controls the water supply for twothirds of Washington state's irrigated land, is expected to make a decision by early May, and perhaps as soon as this week, said Dan DuBray, the agency's chief spokesman. The ruling will mark another key test for the Obama administration, which again will decide how far it will go in allowing the state to bypass federal law with its experimental plan to license growers and sell pot for
recreational use. The government's decision also will affect growers

This is the kind of thing that happens when sloppy state laws pass and you try to fit a square peg in a round hole.” Kevin Sabet,

While the administration so far has done nothing to block either state, some lo-
cal officials predict the Bureau of Reclamation is sure to rule that the water cannot be used on marijuana plants, since the drug has been banned by Congress. "I'm almost certain that's what they're going to tell us," said Scott Revell, district manager for the Roza Irrigation District in Washington state, which contracts with the federal agency to provide water to roughly 72,000 acres in the Yakima Valley. Such a decision would mark a clear victory for legalization opponents, but they
say it should not be unexpected. "I don't think we should be too surprised that people who are breaking federal law cannot access federally controlled water," said Kevin Sabet, a former drug policy adviser for President Barack Obama who's now the director of the anti-legalization group Project SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana). "This is the kind of thing that happens when sloppy state laws pass and you try to fit a square peg in a round hole."

Six returning players have played in the Final Four, not including Cauley-Stein, who was out with an injury. This summer will be an excruciating wait for UK fans. The team that takes the floor in October at Rupp Arena will be better prepared than any in recent memory in Lexington. With so many heralded

Even so, those lofty expectations are a shock to those who believed the 2013-14 Cats were as good as advertised.

at the age of 67. “I think Hunter felt like Louisville had kind of abandoned him, and perhaps it had,” said Ed McClanahan, a Kentucky author who spent some time with Thompson during the ’60s and ’70s. “I think he wasn’t very favorably inclined toward Louisville by the end of his life.” Thompson visited McClanahan in the mid-’70s at the University of Montana for a speech to an auditorium “absolutely packed with people.” “Hunter came on stage with his cigarette holder and
his big cup of Wild Turkey,” McClanahan said. After a roaring applause, Thompson went up to the microphone and said, “Well, you motherf*****s invited me up here, what do you want to know?” The night that followed was “one of the most unhinged nights of my life,” McClanahan said. “It was totally crazy. We went to every bar in town and Hunter just roared through the whole thing. But you know what was amazing? He was a total gentleman. He was a true Kentucky gentleman. No one ever gives him credit for that.”

Backfield shows promise in scrimmage MATT OVERING
Nothing negative can be taken from UK’s spring game on Saturday. The scrimmage was designed to be vanilla — no surprises, just a solid, clean football game. Still 35,117 fans came out and watched the catfight. UK ran the ball 55 times compared to 51 passes. Running backs were the best performers, grounding an offense that needs to take a big step forward after a mediocre 2013 season. Expecting every question to be answered would be too much to ask for at this point. The offense wasn’t close to being full strength. Head coach Mark Stoops said fans would see more “quality” in
the fall. “You could see we are still a little bit thin in certain positions,” Stoops said after the game. “When you’re putting on two teams, it waters you down.” The two biggest position battles were not watered down. Each member of the backfield produced on the field, but only clouded any choice of a clear winner. At running back, junior transfer Braylon Heard started the game, but it was sophomore Jojo Kemp that led the game with 93 yards and two touchdowns. Sophomore Patrick Towles started the game under center and threw for a team-high 126 yards, but threw one interception and was sacked a teamhigh three times. The on-field production has been matched by an improved mindset. Players were hardly “vanilla” in their emotions before the game and on
the sidelines. Some players, including senior Bud Dupree and sophomore Jaleel Hytchye, starred in a music video played on the big screen before and after the game. When the video played, players danced. “I love the support, that’s why I want to have fun out there,” Kemp said. Kemp celebrated after both of his touchdowns, calling his post-touchdown performance “a little mojo swag” on the field. Special teams coach Craig Naviar said he wanted to see solid all-around play. “We kept it simple and basic,” Naviar said. “We wanted to see guys execute, play fast and physical … wanted to see guys get after it and show us where we’re at right now on offense, defense and special teams.” Keeping it simple worked for the UK coaching staff. There were no added injuries, no shockingly bad perform-

Running back Jojo Kemp trots into the end zone during the Blue/White scrimmage Saturday. ances. In the end, though, questions still linger. Leaders will have to emerge in the offseason, a time when Stoops and
his staff can’t be guiding the team in drills. “With the new rules, we are not allowed to be out there with them when there’s a foot-
ball out there,” Stoops said. “They have got to have great leadership and continue to work through the summer and get quality work.”
Baseball team faltering Softball drops series finale KEVIN ERPENBECK Kernel columnist
As the season winds down and the competition stiffens, UK baseball is faltering in the homestretch. This UK baseball team is just not the same as it was earlier in the year. This was once a powerhouse team that showed its strength through a high-powered offense and instilled fear into opponents with its starting pitching every weekend. But that offensive strength has weakened, and no one is scared of UK’s three-man rotation anymore. The weekend series with Ole Miss embodied that fact. The Cats’ starters gave up 17 runs in 12 innings of work
while the offense produced seven runs in that time. UK lost the series, dropping to 9-12 in the SEC and completely out of the conference championship race. The disappearance of the starting pitching hasn’t gone unnoticed by head coach Gary Henderson and has been a nagging concern for him. “It’s been gone in the last four games,” Henderson said after Saturday’s seriesdeciding loss. “We’ve gone four, three, three, and five (innings) in those games. We were really solid for the first 39 games, but those short outings have an accumulating effect.” While the offense is still this team’s strength, the lack of early-game production hasn’t helped bail UK out of those short outings. If there has been one bright spot for the Cats dur-
ing this middling stretch, it’s junior A.J. Reed. The star hitter has driven in 20 RBIs in the last 12 games and has continued his power tear, knocking in his NCAA-leading 19th homer of the season on Saturday. But the future professional can’t fix UK’s ailments by himself. Reed alone isn’t good enough to return this team to the prominent force it once was. “There’s multiple things that get taxed a little bit, and we have to get back to taking care of the things we were good at for the first 39 games,” Henderson said. The problem is the Cats have shown little signs of returning to that previous form. They are a shell of themselves at this point in the season, and that shell can’t measure up with the rest of the prevalent teams in the SEC.
Errors plague the Cats’ performance against Tennessee By Justin Chartrand email@example.com
A battle between two Top 10 teams drew 4,664 fans to John Cropp Stadium over the weekend, marking the most attendance for a three game series in UK softball history. Senior pitcher Ellen Renfroe led No. 8 Tennessee (39-9, SEC 14-7) to a seriesclinching 9-2 victory on Sunday over No. 9 UK (40-11, SEC 13-8). The Cats honored six seniors before the game for Senior Day. Senior outfielder Emily Gaines kicked the game off for the Cats offense with a double off the centerfield wall to drive in two runs, giving UK the early 2-0 lead. After a hot start in the first inning, Renfroe cooled the Cats’ bats, tossing eight strikeouts in seven innings
pitched. She picked up her 25th win of the season. “(I) just continued to attack the strike zone and trust my stuff,” Renfroe said. The Volunteers flexed their offensive muscle by driving in five runs in the fifth inning to jump out to a 6-2 lead. The Cats missed a golden opportunity in the bottom of the fifth inning as the bases were loaded with two outs for Gaines, who struck out swinging as Renfroe tossed her way out of the jam. “I think that was definitely a huge momentum changer for the game,” Renfroe said. “When you have all eight players behind you talking to you, it just gives you a sense of confidence.” Errors doomed the Cats on Friday, giving up five unearned runs in a 6-3 Tennessee win.
“On Friday night we had a bunch of errors,” Lawson said Saturday. “I think they maybe would have had two runs if we didn’t have all the errors.” The Cats tied the series Saturday in front of a crowd of 1,858 at John Cropp Stadium, the second-largest crowd in UK softball history. “I thought the fan support really did a great job for us, and really probably helped push over the edge in the later innings,” Lawson said. Despite the Cats success Saturday, the Volunteers offense and the pitching of Renfroe proved to be too much for the Cats on Friday and Saturday. The Cats do not have time to mourn the senior day loss as they travel to Louisville on Wednesday. UK beat Louisville on April 2.

Affirmative action hurts minorities, the nation MATT YOUNG
Affirmative action, giving preference to people based on the color of their skin, not character and talent, is contrary to Dr. King’s own words. “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Last week, the Supreme Court took a large step toward true equality by upholding a Michigan voter ban on affirmative action in college ad-
missions. I am not saying affirmative action hurts white people – it doesn’t. What I am saying is that it hurts minorities and is not a true policy of equality. Proposition 209 was a California ballot initiative on affirmative action to end racial preference in their state. What happened afterward was unexpected. Minority enrollments into the state universities declined, but the number of minorities graduating did not change. This means the minority rate of graduation grew. To put that in plain English, many of these students were not finishing college. Because they were given preference in schools, affirmative action was getting them into a
school that, for one reason or another, they could not finish. This is not a racial thing. We could expect the same result if white students were ad-

mitted to schools for which they were not qualified. The result was that these minority students left college with no degree, most likely large amounts of student loans and a bad experience with higher
Matt Young, columnist cessful. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor has even referred to herself as an “affirmative action baby.” However, her intellect and work ethic suggests that she would have graduated from a
great school — even if that school was not Princeton or Yale — and gone on to a successful career, regardless. But if affirmative action is granting admittance to students who will only be harmed by attending that university, the racial preference should be removed. The evidence suggests Sotomayor is the exception, not the rule. The best candidates should be the ones admitted to the best schools. For the less qualified students (of any race), there are less prestigious and demanding schools to fit their needs. If every student goes to the right school, we will have more graduates holding more degrees in every race. This helps minorities, the education system and the economy.
Individuals define presidency CHEYENE MILLER
We’ve all heard the old saying, “the Republican Party is the party of business.” There is only one problem with this assertion. When talking about which party handles money better while in the White House, the idea that Republicans outperform Democrats is completely unjustified. Let’s look at a few facts. Gross Domestic Product has grown seven times more under Democratic presidents. The stock market has performed better under Democratic presidents. Also, Republican presidents have added 2.5 times more to the national debt than Democrats have.
Ronald Reagan tripled the national debt, increasing it from $995 billion to $2.9 trillion. There is also George W. Bush, who decided cutting taxes while trying to fund two wars was a good idea. Of course the U.S. economy is complex, and the actions of the president are not the sole influence on a country’s economic prosperity. But these are facts, and the idea that Republicans are far superior money-managers is a myth. Democrats also face unjustified misconceptions. For example, it’s often believed that Democrats are more peaceful than Republicans. History doesn’t care about stereotypes, and once again, the facts tell a different story. Of the seven major wars America has fought since the start of the 20th century, the vast majority of the hours spent fighting those wars oc-
curred under the presidency of a Democrat, and it is no secret that President Barack Obama has used predator drones. Harry S. Truman approved the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which killed hundreds of thousands of people during the initial bombing and the resulting radiation. The president isn't the sole reason that America chooses to go to war, but the idea that Republican presidents resort to violence more than Democratic presidents is simply inaccurate. Remember, politicians are people too, and they do not deserve to be put in a box. The individual makes the presidency, not the political party.

To be admitted to UK, we had to write an essay on how we could contribute to diversity. Diversity is celebrated – as it should be. No student will be denied based on race in this environment, which means they should not be admitted based on it either. Affirmative action not only hurts minorities, but it hurts the entire nation and economy as a whole. It is time we took Dr. King’s dream and the 14th Amendment for what they are. “I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up, live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.’” Matt Young is a political science junior.
