Four years. 373 million.

That‘s the amount of state
higher education funding UK
has lost titre to budget issues.

But the rtational govern-
ment may be able to chip in
where the state government
has fallen short if the vot-
ers call for that. said UK assis-
tartt political science professor
Steve Voss.

"In theory. Congress arid
the president could give a ton
of money to higher education.
if they wanted." Voss said.

"On the other hand. there's
no sign that they ought to.“ he
said. “Voters value education
but seem to prefer when the
states are responsible."

Kentucky‘s current repre-
sentatives. their challengers
and UK have a variety of
views on how to obtain Con-
gressional funding.

UK President Lee Todd
saw a need to advocate for UK
on a national level. arid in 2002
hired .lim Duff. managing
partner for the Washington.
[TC-based law firm Baher
Donelson. to help out.

Duff. art alumnus. said his
job is to identify lK's
strengths and educate law-
makers about its abilities.

So far. he's seen success.

”We‘r . seeing a pretty dra-
matic iittproverttent" front
years past. Dutf said. “It's par»
ticularly remarkable in a peri-
od of time when the budget is
so tight."

Duff cautioned that funds
froitt the national government

can't substitute entirely for
state funding. and be praised
the delegation for "going to bat
for UK." In turn, Todd credited
Duff for his successes.

“We simply weren't getting
our fair share. and one strate-
gy was to hire someone on the
streets of [).C.." Todd said.

The result is a $17.3-mil-
lion increase irt federal funds
appropriated specifically for
the UK over the past five years.
Todd said.

That money is all research
dollars. but that‘s where the
process of better funding a
university on a national level
can begin. said state Sen. Tom
Buford. a candidate for the 6th
Congressional District seat.

"This won‘t happen
overnight." said Buford. a Re
publican. "it's a long-range

Buford pledged to work

cally for UK.

Buford is running against
incumbent US. Rep. Ben

Chandler. a Democrat, said
he's secured more than $6 mil-
lion for UK in the most recent
federal budget proposal and
cited l’ell Grants as another
way to help higher education.

Bauer said. Allowing samesex
marriages would pave the way
for other so-called “unortho

Birch countered by calling
the argument a “red herring."
arguing life still goes on in
samesex marriages.

“The leaves are still turn-
ing in Massachusetts." she
said. “The sun still comes up
and the sky hasn't fallen."

Buford admitted that the
competition is stiff.

“Whoever gets there first
gets the golden egg." he said.

But Voss argued that the
public shouldn't pay attention
to this political rhetoric.

“The Chandlers and the
Bufords of the world can say.
‘Well. I got this grant and this
other grant.’ or. '1 can get this
much money' but this isn't
‘new' money." Voss said. "It‘s
pork it's our tax dollars.

"They didn‘t create this
pork; they didn't go slaughter
the pig. if you will. They stole
it from our freezer and then
came back to us later and gave
us bacon." Voss said.

Both parties also disagreed
on whether samesex marriage
is a civil rights issue.

"The paycheck doesn‘t
know if you are straight or
gay." she said. explaining how
she still has to pay the same
taxes that heterosexuals pay
but without the same benefits.

Bauer contended that the
issue is not even really an is»

Over the next week. Americans will face an
important choice in this year’s Presidential Election.
(in important part of that election will be
participation by college students and young people.
who are expected to turn out in much higher
numbers and be one of the deciding factors in
determining a winner. Greeks around campus are
participating fully in this year's election. and
encouraging fellow UK students to fake a stand.
voice your opinions. and be counted on November


Whether liberal. conservative. or independent.
students around campus are extremely vocal about

voting this year. Mike Stacks. a

junior political

science maior and a member of Kappa Alpha
fraternity. believes that all UK students and Greeks
should participate. "This election is the most
important for college students in a long time. The
issues that are discussed. such as education. affect
students in a lot of ways. including our tuition
payments." Slacks also emphasized the need to

vote for local elections as well.

“We also need to

voice our opinions on the 3rd district race. That
person represents UK in the local government. and

we can decide the outcome of that election.


Students and Greeks can be very influential."

Chris Maeruder. a member of Phi Kappa Tau
fraternity and an engineering iunior. voiced his

concerns about the election as well.

“I wouldn't

miss my chance to support something that .1 believe
1n. if you don’t stand up and make your opinion

known. what's

the point?"

Greek students support the right to vote and
urge your participation on November 2nd. Without
representation. students will never be heard. and
now is our chance to make sure that we are counted.
