Low tax burden
handicaps state,
commission finds

Associated Press

LOUISVILLE, Ky. ~ Kentucki-
ans pay a smaller share of their
wealth in taxes than individuals
and businesses in most other
states, according to a study by the
Advisory Commission on Inter-gov-
ernmental Relations.

The commission, a bipartisan
group of federal, state and local
government officials and private
citizens, has developed a widely
used system for comparing the
ability of states to tax their citizens
and businesses.

Kentucky’s wealth, or ability to
pay taxes, ranks near the bottom.
Yet despite that handicap, the com-
monwealth makes less effort to tax
its available resources than all but
14 states. The state’s tax effort
ranks 37th, according to the study,
which compares tax burdens in the
50 states and the District of Colum—

“We have historically resisted
taxes," said state Sen. Michael R.
Moloney, D-Lexington, chairman of
the Senate Appropriations and Rev-
enue Committee.

Most states had a broad-based
tax increase during the 1980s, but
Kentucky did not. Moloney said.

“Mississippi did; Arkansas did;
Alabama did; both the Carolinas
(didl p states that some people
think we can look down our noses
at," he said.

Yet many Kentuckians. including

Gov. Wallace Wilkinson, persist in
believing they are taxed to the

“Our willingness to tax out-
weighs our capacity to tax,” Wil-
kinson said in his State of the Com-
monwealth address in January
1988. He argued that Kentuckians'
income was too low to afford a tax

In his budget speech a week
later, Wilkinson said that in the
previous 20 years the sales tax,
gasoline tax and corporate taxes
had all been raised, and the sever-
ance tax had been started. “We’ve
taxed and taxed, and we‘re still be-
hind," he said.

He has not backed away from
those statements, although he has
said he would support a tax in»
crease if it's needed for education.

The property tax is probably the
most reviled of all Kentucky taxes,
yet the study, published earlier this
year and based on 1985-86 tax rec-
eipts, shows that Kentucky relies
less on that source of revenue than
all but seven states.

Kentucky also raises less than
the national average from the gen-
eral sales tax and selective sales
taxes on items such as alcoholic
beverages, cigarettes and wa-
gering on horse races.

But the study probably under-
states Kentucky's current situation
regarding selective sales taxes be-
cause it doesn’t include the 1986 in-
crease in the state gas tax.

Student tickets for UK’s season
opener against Indiana Universi-
ty will be available beginning
8am. Wednesday.

Ticket distribution orginally
was Tuesday, Sept. 5, but because
of the Labor Day holiday and the
excitement about this year’s sea-
son, ticket officials deCided to
move the data up six days.

“It makes no sense to lose a
day," said Rodney Stiles, student
affairs officer. “We‘re ready to
go down here, and we’re itching
to start selling these things."

Stiles said he thinks that dis-
tributing the tickets early will
benefit students and the ticket of-

“It’s no sense to put too much
strain on the ticket office to sell
leftover tickets to the public," he
said. “It only gives them two
days to sell them if we waited to
Tuesday. It also gives the stu-
dents two weeks to make plans."

Distribution is from 8 am. until
4 pm. Tickets are distributed on
a first-come-first-serve basis at
the ticket windows outside Memo-
rial Coliseum.

“Priority seating,“ sections 208
and 210, will be distributed that
evening from 6 until 7 pm.

Local organizations hope to revitalize student volunteerism

Special Projects Writer

In an effort to create a stronger
link between UK and the Lexington
community, several groups and in-
dividuals at UK are coordinating
the establishment of a campus vol-
unteer center to channel the talents
and energy of UK students into
community service programs.

Although there have been scat-
tered efforts in the past to involve
students in community service, a
renewed enthusiasm over the past
several months has prompted the
initiation of different avenues
through which UK students can
find ways to volunteer in the com-

Linda Harvey, a community
service leader and director of Lex-
Care, of which many Lexington so-
cial agencies are a part, said al-
though she hasn't seen a real
commitment for volunteer action

from UK in recent years, “I‘m be-
ginning to see that now.”

Among the several activities cur.
rently underway is Campus Com-
munity Outreach, a program that
serves as a clearinghouse between
UK and public-service agencies in
Lexington. Organizers of CCO have
been organizing it since last year,
and they already have set aside an
office in the Matthews Building for
a new volunteer coordinator, They
began accepting applications for
the position this week and hope to
have someone in charge of the pro-
gram by October.

“It would be nice to develop a
spirit of volunteerism around the
University," said Louise Stone, di-
rector of Experiential Education
and one of CCO's organizers.

Stone said she hopes CCO and the
volunteer coordinator will act as a
“catalyst to capture the energy“ of
student volunteers by making con-
tacts with service agencies and

Keeping the extra pounds off
can be difficult while at UK

Staff Writer

UK psychologist Janet Coffey
hears the term “freshman 15" a lot
from UK women.

“Among the people who come to
me with eating disorders, a lot say
they came to college and gained
the ‘freshman 15,‘ panicked and
tried to lose it," said Coffey, who
works at the UK Counseling and
Testing Center

Elizabeth Schwartz, an English
sophomore from Nashville, Tenn,
said she believes the fear of gain-
ing weight among UK women is a
big problem.

“I think a lot of people are wor-
ried about it." Schwartz said. “I
think girls are really caught up in
their appearance. and they're very
consciencious of their weight. I was
worried about it, and I still am."

Lisa DeHaven. an English senior
from Hardinsburg, Ky., said gain-
ing weight is one of freshmen‘s big~
gest fears because everyone talks
about it so much.

“I think when you get here (to

SP 011T S

l'Ki. it's all you hear about." De—
Haven said.

The term “freshman 15" refers
to the weight many freshman
woemn gain during their first year
in college. Most gain about 15

While some try to aVOId. they say
it can be difficult to stay fit while
in college.

“I said I wasn't going to gain
weight, but I still did,“ said Jan-
uary Price. a communications
sophomore from Morehead, Ky.

Although the term haunts some
freshmen girls, many UK women
said freshman aren‘t the only ones
concerned about gaining weight
during college,

Heather Martin, a senior from
Lexington, said she wasn't con-
cerned about gaining weight when
she was a freshman.

"I'm more concerned about it
now than I was then," she said

(the of the reasons women gain
weight during college is stress, Cof-
fey said.

“Exams. being away from home.
and having to grow up“ add to the
stress. she said

Lori liyiin. an undeclared fresh-
man from Woodbury. Minn. said
she isn‘t worried about the fresh-
man 13 but the "freshman 50 be-
cause when I get a lot of home
work. I get nervous and I eat "

other freshmen gain weight be
cause some have trouble adjusting
to a new style of food. (‘offey said

“For the most part. restaurant
cooking is so much higher in fat"
than homecooked food. Coffey

temptation to eat only junk food
and neglect more nutritious food.

But Angela Craig, a physical the-

Coffey said freshmen who don‘t

more nutritious food, many go on
very strict diets that often lead to
binging, which can lead to eating
disorders, she said.

Many women try to go on 1,000-
calorie diets, Coffey said, which
can cause health problems.

“It's better to go on 1,500-calorie
diets," she said. “When you go on
1,000-calorie diets, your metabo-
lism adjusts down and you can't
eat more than 1,000 calories later.
Therefore, you gain back the

Coffey said the rule of thumb is
”the faster you lose weight, the
faster you‘ll gain it back.“

Exercise is the best way to avoid
gaining weight while in college,
Coffey said. About 30 minutes of
continuous exercise each day is
needed to to keep the “freshman
15" off, she said. “Ten minutes (of
walking) between classes isn’t
enough, " she said.

Kristin Sheets, a dietetics sopho-
more from Gallipolis, Ohio, said
walking helped her keep from put-
ting on extra pounds during her
freshman year.

“I was never worried about it be-
cause I didn’t gain it because I
walked so much," she said. “When
you don’t have a car you‘re
stranded and you have to walk."

much morale," Galeano said.

For some students though, gain-
ing weight was never a concern.

'I‘racie Thurston, a psychology
sophomore from Lexington said
she never took the “freshmen 15“

“When I heard about it, I thought
it was kind of a joke," Thurston
said. “We (my friends) just sat
around and joked about it. I still
don't think about it. It seems like
your eating habits are established
before you get to college.“

Lisa Kiefer, a fashion merchan—
dising freshman from Boca Raton,
Fla, said eating is the last thing on
her mind.

“I'm not worried about gaining it
because we've got aerobics up-
stairs and I've been eating good. I
forget to eat because I'm doing so
much all the time," Kiefer said.

Stephanie Kash, an elementary
education freshman from Winches-

been a problem for her either
