Education secretary considers

Sports: Law that focused on sexual discrimination
could be revamped to address criticisms, concerns



US. Education Secretary
Rod Paige responded swiftly
to a government recommen
dation that suggested tweak»
ing Title IX. the 1972 law that
protects from sexual discrimi-
nation in academic or other
federal programs.

Wednesday night. hours
after the official report was
delivered by the Commission
on Opportunity in Athletics.
Paige released a statement
saying that he would only
consider the recommenda-
tions that were unanimously
supported by the commission
~~ potentially nixing eight of
the 23 proposals.

Despite striking down
eight proposals , which were
the most controversial , the
report by the commission rec-
ommends that a retooling of
the law go forward.

"This report includes sev-
eral recommendations unani-
mously agreed upon by all of
the commissioners in public
meetings.“ Paige said in a

Retooling may include
strengthening the enforce-
ment of Title IX. giving equal
weight to each of the three


methods of compliance in the
law and discouraging schools
from the practice of cutting
male sports teams in order to
maintain impartiality
UK women's basketball
coach Bernadette Mattox re-
cently echoed the retooling
sentiment.“Everything needs
upgrading." she said. "I think
that if they see fit to change
it. then it would be fine."

TV star Fred Rogers, 74, dies of cancer

Remembering: UK students reminisce about show
and the man who taught them lessons about life


Fred Rogers. better

known as TV‘s Mr. Rogers.
passed away early yesterday

morning due to complica-

brown cardigans and trol-

Rogers was 74.
The death came as a
shock to many as they

realized the neighborly per-

was gone.

“It‘s awful. I used to get
home from school and watch
the show everyday on KET
with my grandma." said Ash-

strategic communication and
psychology sophomore. “It
feels like a little piece of my
childhood has passed away"

As a television show that
spanned five decades. “Mister
Rogers' Neighborhood"
helped kids learn to love

tht‘lilselVes and each other

"A lot of cartoons today
are unrealistic and are ius‘t
used to keep children out of
their parents hair." l’aynter
said “But that show taught
you :1 lesson "

Most had trouble reiiieiti

Louisville priest named in suits

LOUISVILLE ., A Louisville man sued
the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of

Richard Pryor.

when told of alleged abuses. The archdio-

the suits.

House passes ban on cloning

WASHINGTON After a lengthy de-
bate on science and human life. the House
on Thursday passed a bill endorsed by Pres-
ident Bush that would ban human cloning
and sentence violators to prison and fines as
high as $1 million. In a 241-155 vote, law-
makers decided to ban all cloning even as
some urged for an exception so researchers
can continue to work toward cures for dis-
eases such as Alzheimer's. Parkinson's and
diabetes. The measure is expected to have
an uphill battle in the Senate, where Repub-
licans lack the 60 votes necessary to end de-
bate and force a vote.

Bush's tax cut plan introduced

WASHINGTON # Republicans intro-

tax cut plan as congressional legislation on
Thursday. hoping to give a jolt of momen—

port from GOP moderates and has been pro—
nounced dead by Democrats. The Bush ad«

by the president's proposal to eliminate the

Senators call for image control

WASHINGTON — Senators urged the
Bush administration on Thursday to move
aggressively in raising the image of the
United States abroad, particularly among
Muslim countries. Lawmakers increasingly
have become concerned about rising anti-
Americanism and say they have seen it first-
hand in their travels overseas. That has
made it difficult to win support for military
action against Iraq. and, some fear, could
swell the ranks of terrorist organizations.
At a Senate Foreign Relations Committee
hearing on Bush administration's public
diplomacy efforts, the panel's top Democrat,
Sen. Joseph Biden of Delaware, said the
“enormous good will and energy" the Unit-
ed States received after the Sept. 11 attacks
“has been squandered."

Louisville lawmakers: Community officials are
ignoring ‘obvious violations' in shooting case


FRANKFURT Five Louisville lawmakers said
Wednesday they would ask federal prosecutors to investi-
gate whether police violated a handcufted black man's civv
i1 rights when they shot and killed him.

The lawmakers said they were planning to mail a let
ter to US. Attorney Stephen Pence by the end of the day.
asking him to present the results of his investigation to a
federal grand jury.

“I am frustrated. angry and almost at my wit's end
when what appear to be very obvious violations of civil
rights as well as unnecessary force that was used against
Mr. Taylor. comes back with no indictment Rep. Regi-
nald Meeks said. "I'm frustrated because my community
would not, could not. has not and will not look at this ev1-
dence and say no indictment is warranted."

A grand jury cleared Louisville Metro Police detec-
tives Mike O'Neil and Bryan Luckett on Monday night in
connection with the Dec. 5 shooting death of James Ed-
ward Taylor. Police said the 50-year-old Taylor. whose
hands were cuffed behind his back. lunged at the officers
with a box cutter.

But the Louisville Democrats which included
Meeks. Rep. Paul Bather. Rep. Tom Riner. Rep. Tom Burch
and Sen. Gerald Neal said the grand jury‘s decision left
them with questions.

“An independent investigation and determination by
a federal grand jury is absolutely necessary to restore be-
lief and trust in justice and our law enforcement system."
their letter to Spence said.

An FBI investigation of Taylor's shooting has been
completed and was forwarded several weeks ago to the
US Justice Department‘s civil rights office in Washing-
ton, Pence told The Courier-Journal.

“They make the call on whether the case goes forward
for civil rights prosecution or whether it is declined.“
Pence told the newspaper Wednesday.

Bather said he knew the FBI had begun an investiga-
tion but wasn't aware it was complete and was being re-
viewed by civil rights authorities in Washington.

“Great!" Bather told the newspaper. “That's good
news. ‘

Bather said earlier that a federal grand jury would at
least answer some of their questions and its members
would come from a broader pool of people with different

Prosecutors on Tuesday made public hundreds of
pages of evidence that were presented to the grand jury,

Guard, said no grand jury
proceedings were being held
at the center Thursday. but

Two members of Great
White went to the center

nied they gave permission.

Legal experts and fire in-
vestigators said the Derderi-
