Let‘s talk. about sex

Education: Pam Woodrum says she has an ‘open-door'
policy with students who want information

By Sarah Vlllmoth

Armed with a bag full of
sex brochures. contraceptive
devices and a wooden model of
a penis she fondly calls
“Woody." Pam Woodrum enters
a roomful of nearly 70 young
women at UK's Sigma Kappa
sorority house.

Woodrum. 55. is a certified
women's health care nurse
practitioner and health educa~
tion counselor for the Universi-
ty Health Service. She regular-
ly gives lectures about sex to
various groups around cam-
pus. covering everything from
abstinence. pap smears and al-
cohol to pregnancy. contracep-
tion and sexually transmitted

Each academic year.
Woodrum is likely to speak to
as many as 1,000 students in
residence halls. greek organi-
zations and other campus
groups. She also sees nearly
500 students in her office and
gives around 25 guest lectures
for different classes every

Just minutes into the lec-
ture at the Sigma Kappa house.
Woodrum asks for two students
willing to demonstrate how to
apply the Ortho Evra birth
control patch. When she re-
wards them with colorful Can-
doms _ rubberized soda can
holders that look like giant
condoms k the room fills with
laughter and the ice is immedi-
ately broken.

Students who attend her
talks are surprised. yet pleased
by Woodrum’s openness about

The animated nurse from
Mt. Sterling. Ky. is a small
woman with a kind face. a
warm smile and a laid-back
personality who tells students

right away that no subject is
off-limits. She comfortably
delves into topics such as the
effect of penis size on sexual
pleasure or the meaning be~
hind sticky vaginal discharge.
Her willingness to discuss and
answer questions about any
sex-related topic quickly puts
some people at ease.

“She's just really cool.“
said Kali Boulanger. an animal
science sophomore and Sigma
Kappa sorority member. “You
wouldn't expect someone who‘s
older to be so open about sex
because she might be your
mom's age."

Woodrum has counseled
and guided countless students
over the years through pregnan
cies. pelvic exams and STDs and
is the woman every female stu-
dent must meet and talk with
before her first pap smear at
UHS. Many students who have
met Woodrum or have attended
one of her lectures think of her
as UK‘s unofficial student sexu-
al health representative

Dr. Spencer Turner. direc
tor and head team physician at
health service. echoes that sen-

“She really is our [the
health service‘s] person in
terms of who covers issues re-
lated to sexual health," he said.


Woodrum has spent the
last 10 years in the health edu~
cation department at health
services. but she began her ca—
reer at UK long before.

She began her nursing ca-
reer at UK in 1967 working in
obstetrics and gynecology: In
1970. she moved to the outpa-
tient medical clinic. where she
worked for another three years.

She joined the health ser-
vice in 1973 as a staff nurse
and soon after went back to


scorr usmnsxv | KERNEL STAFF

school to seek higher certifica—
tion. She did clinical work at
UHS for almost 20 years.

As her rheumatoid arthri-
tis worsened. Woodrum was
forced to end her clinical work
and began her career as a
health educator in the early

At that point in time. the
health service was trying to
build up its health education
activities. Turner said. The
best thing to do for the whole
health service was to put her
in the department of health ed-
ucation. he said.

“I felt Pam's brain was too
good not to just push and uti-
lize it." he said. "it was a nat-
ural move for her. and she's
just done marvelously for us."

Lectures around campus

One of the most important
points Woodrum makes clear
to students early on is that ab-
stinence is OK.

”There are other things
you can do for pleasuring short
of having intercourse." she

Woodrum said that she
poses a lot of hypothetical
questions to students to get
them thinking seriously about
sex. She says she also stresses
the importance of informed dee

“Ideally. you should post-
pone intercourse until you're
in that long-term. mutually
monogamous relationship."
she said. “But if you're going
to do something. protect your—
self from pregnancy and sexu-
ally transmitted infections
that's the most important
thing. Casual sex in this day in
age can be deadly."

Woodrum said that men
must take as much responsibil-
ity as women in terms of con»
traceptive use.

“Guys shouldn't depend on
women to always be the ones to
use birth control." she said.
“Just because she doesn't in-

Voters may be
surprised by

By Rebecca Neal

and Laura Bogenschutz


On Election Day, voters
will have the chance to de-
cide whether to delete sec-
tions of Kentucky's 1891
constitution so more mod-
ern laws can be added.

Amendment 2 deals
with 11 sections involving
regulations for corpora
tions in Kentucky. Some of
the measures in the sec-
tions include a ban on
trusts and regulations for
foreign corporations.

Some supporters of the
amendment have said the
sections are outdated and
should be replaced. Stephen
Voss. a political science pro
fessor. said this is typical of
most deleted sections.

“Most of the things taken
out of the constitution are
dead law anyway." he said.

Voss said the constitu-
tion was written in the late
1800s. when the nation was
recovering from a depres-
sion and more stringent cor
porate laws were enacted.

Supporters have said
the amendment would help
attract new businesses; op-
ponents argue it would not
help large corporations.
hurting working families.

Brad Canon. a political
science professor. said the
amendment has been large»
1y ignored by the public.
leaving voters uninformed.

“No one discusses
specifics. and there is no pub
licity on why we should or
should not vote for it." he said.

The amendment on the
ballot reads. "Are you in favor
of permitting the General
Assembly to provide by gen-
eral law for the formation. or-
ganization. and regulation of
corporations by repealing
certain sections of the (‘on-
stitution of Kentucky relat-
ing to corporations?"

Amendment 2 was
passed with no opposition
on the final day of the 2002
General Assembly It was
one of the top recommen-
dations made by a congres-
sional review commission
in 1987.

Proposed deletions

The ll sections of Amendment 2
of Kentucky's constitution that
would be repealed if the refer-
endum passes are:

Section 190: Corporations in .
existence at the time of the
adoption of the present
Constitution shall file an accep-

Section l9l: Unexercised char-
ters granted prior to the adop-

Section 192: Corporations are
limited to the exercise of the

except that which is necessary
and proper for carrying on
legitimate business.

Section 193: Stocks or bonds
are to be issued only for
money, property, or labor at
fair market value.

Section l94: Corporations shall

Earthquakes hit Alaska, Nebraska

ANCHORAGE, Alaska -—- A major

fuel tanks and shaking rural homes. The
magnitude 7.9 quake. centered 90 miles
south of Fairbanks. was strongly felt in An-
chorage about 270 miles to the south. It hit at
1:13 pm. Alaska Standard Time. said Bruce
Turner of Alaska anti Tsunami Warning
Center. The state patrol said no injuries
were immediately reported. “It shook for a
good 30 seconds." Turner said. The earth-
quake occurred on the Denali Fault and had
a shallow depth. said John Lahr. geophysi-
cist at the US. Geological Survey‘s National
Earthquake Information Center in Golden.
Colo. Shallow earthquakes generally are felt
over a wider area. “We expected this would
have surface rupture that geologists could
see on the ground and study." he said. Troop-
ers responded to several reports of damaged
roads in the area. including a 3-foot crack
opened up in the main road between Fair-
banks and Anchorage. said Lt. Lee Farmer.

Netanyahu demands early elections

JERUSALEM . Prime Minister Ariel
Sharon sought to keep his imperiled govern-
ment afloat Sunday by bringing former pre-
mier Benjamin Netanyahu into the Cabinet.
while Netanyahu set a tough condition for
joining early elections. Israel's two lead-
ing rightwing politicians, Sharon and Ne
tanyahu. are trying to work out an alliance
while also battling each other to lead the
Likud Party into the country‘s next general
election. The ballot must be held before next
November. but could be brought forward to
early next year if Sharon resigns or if his
fragile coalition collapses in the coming
days or weeks. In the complex rivalry be-
tween Sharon and Netanyahu. both stressed
their efforts to resolve the current political
crisis. and played down any suggestion they
were jockeying for advantage in the next
election. Sharon "praised the decision in
principle by Mr. Netanyahu to join his gov‘
ernment.” the prime minister‘s office said in
a statement. Netanyahu’s demand for early
elections was “being examined.” Sharon's
office added.

UK to host ‘ice cream'
environmental campaign

Goodies for a cause: UK is only one of 20 colleges
and universities and college to host the tour

By Enlyiiagedorn

snrr wmtm

Ben & Jerry‘s Ice Cream
is using their frozen treats
and Dave Matthews Band mu-
sic to educate students about
global warming.

The Ben & Jerry's One
Sweet Whirled Campus Tour
Road Team will be parked in
Stole Field, across from the
Student Center, today and
Tuesday from 10 am. to 4
pm, handing out ice cream
coupons and information on
the environment.

“(Ben & Jerry‘s) is
putting out a good message to
inform students of their envi-
ronmental decisions and how

they can reduce problems in
the environment," said Ben
Abel, president of the Green
Thumb Environmental Club.

UK is one of 20 colleges
and universities chosen to
host the tour, which is part of
the larger One Sweet Whirled
Global Warming Campaign.

The organizers of the
tour _ Ben & Jerry’s, Dave
Matthews Band and
SaveOurEnvironment.org —-
are also using the tour to de-
but the new ice cream flavor.
One Sweet Whirled, inspired
by the band's ecology-con-
scious song,

“One Sweet Whirled“ _
the flavor v includes caramel
and coffee ice creams mixed

with marshmallow, caramel
swirls and coffee flavored
fudge chips.

Ben & Jerry‘s is giving a
portion of every sale of the
flavor to Dave Matthews
Band's Bama Works Founda-
tion, the band's charity orga-
nization and other global
warming initiatives.

The tour will be hosting
beanbag tosses. selling T
shirts and postcards and will
bring two 10-foot solar power
inflatables and an environ-
mentally friendly RV.

There will also be raffles
giving away pints of ice
cream and Ben & Jerry‘s pint
locks, Abel said.

“This is one of Ben & Jer—
ry's inventions to keep your
roommates from stealing

your ice cream.“ he said.

A focus of the tour's is to

Midterm elections
rarely attract voters


called midterm elections
don't seem to attract the at-
tention of Kentucky voters
and Secretary of State John
Y. Brown 111 thinks Tues-
day’s will be no different.

Even when there is a
US. Senate seat to be decid-
ed, as this year with incum—
bent Republican Mitch Mc-
Connell seeking a historic
fourth term against Democ-
rat Lois Combs Weinberg.
less than half the electorate
turns out to vote.

Brown estimated
turnout Tuesday could be
around 40 percent of the
nearly 2.65 million registered
voters. Polls are open at 3.476
precincts from 6 am. to 6
pm. local time. Similar cir-
cumstances in 1998 saw
turnout of 47.8 percent,
though the Senate race be-
tween Jim Bunning and
Scotty Baesler was more
closely contested. With no
Senate seat on the ballot in
1994, turnout fell to 38.8 per»

The only statewide race
fizzled almost from the mo-
ment it started. Weinberg's
campaign got the air taken
out of it when she barely
squeaked by primary oppo-
nent Tom Barlow.

The lack of a serious
threat did not keep Mc-
Connell from mounting his
usual array of attacks on
any prospective opponent.
His television commercials
compared Weinberg. the
daughter ,of former Gov.
Bert Combs making her

first political campaign, to
hot-button liberals like
Hillary Clinton, called her a
millionaire corporate exec-
utive and made fun of her
claims to represent ordi-
nary families.

Weinberg, desperate for
an issue, has dredged up
McConnell’s opposition to a
constitutional amendment
to prohibit flag burning and
even challenged him to a
trapshooting contest.

A McConnell protege,
3rd District Rep. Anne
Northup, is struggling to
win a fourth term against
Democrat Jack Conway, a
former Patton administra-
tion official who is making
his first race. Party heavy-
weights have joined the fray,
including two visits from
President Bush for Northup
that Democrats say is proof
that she is in trouble.

Up the Ohio River, the
lone Democrat in Kentucky‘s
congressional delegation,
Ken Lucas, is battling histo—
ry to win a third term. Lucas
is the first Democrat to rep—
resent the 4th District in a
generation and is being chal-
lenged by Geoff Davis, a He-
bron businessman and politi-
cal newcomer.

The other members of
the congressional delega-
tion, all Republicans, are
considered safe. Even with-
out a Democratic opponent,
though, 6th District Rep.
Ernie Fletcher has hit the
airwaves with campaign
commercials, criticized in
some corners as advance
campaigning for Fletcher‘s
2003 gubernatorial

Some local matters
could bump up turnout.
Brown said races for the
new metro council in Jeffer-
son County and a con
tentious Lexington mayoral
race . where the state GOP
has dropped hundreds of
thousands of dollars for
Scott Crosbie in a supposed-
ly nonpartisan race — along
with a bevy of local races
across the state may draw
voters. On the other hand.
there are only a couple of
congressional races to at—
tract much interest.

Even so. the election re-
sults will have real meaning
on public policy issues.

Half of the 38-seat state
Senate is at issue and Repubv
licans are struggling to hold
onto their 2018 majority.

The issue of control is
not a big topic on the stump.
but the Senate outcome will
likely decide the shape of a
state budget, which wasn’t
passed this year because of a
disagreement over money
for partial public financing
of gubernatorial campaigns.

The Republican Senate
refused to consider a budget
with campaign finance mon-
ey in it. Republicans claim
their presence also help kill
tax increase proposals and it
indisputably helped stall
casino gambling legislation.
