Parking fines to increase by July 1

Shell out the cash: Tickets will increase $5,
grade period will also increase to 10 days

By Nick Tomecek


Starting July 1 students will
have to shell out more cash for
parking tickets that are not paid
within the new IOday grace period.

Right now. students in viola-
tion of parking without a permit
will pay $10 and will have seven
days to pay the ticket or the fine
will increase to $15. Under the new
plan. the $10 ticket will double to
$20 afier 10 days.

Many students are upset by the
new plan.

“I think it's pretty ridiculous. A
lot of times it is just going over to
the parking office. Like other stu»
dents I forget.“ said Sabrina Coyle.

an elementary education senior.

But Don Thornton, the director
of Parking and Transportation Ser-
vices. says he is not sympathetic to
complaints by students because of
the impact violators have on people
who pay for permits.

“[Parking violations] impact
the students and employees that
have those permits." Thornton said.

In addition to the new grace pe-
riod. students will also pay $50 for
parking violations in fire lane and
handicap spaces. a fine doubling
from the current $25 fine.

The new plan was composed by
the Parking Transportation Com-
mittee. which is made up of faculty.
staff and students. The plan took six
months to prepare with much coop-



eration from the students in the
committee. Thornton said.

The new grace period and fine
will be effective for controlling per-
sistent violators. he said.

“increasing tines appears to be
a deterrent. Right now an individ-
ual can look at the cost of a pemiit
and can park in violation at least 15
times before it equals the cost of a
permit." Thornton said.

The fine for using a fake or
stolen permit decreased from the
cost of a new permit to a flat $100
fine. Pemiits cost $152 for the year.

Students will still be towed af-
ter six parking violations within a
year. but starting July 1 the im-
pounding fee will add $25 in addi
tion to the current $52 paid to re-
trieve a person's car after it has
been towed.

“We‘re trying to deter individu-
als from constantly violating the
rules." Thomton said.



‘3‘} r.




Beginning July l stu-
dents will pay $15 for
regular parking tick-
ets. The current
price is Slo. Other
areas that will see
increases include the
fine for parking In
fire lanes and handl-
cap spaces. This fine
will double. The cur-
rent fine is $25,
beginning July I It
will be $50.

Full house: Cards used to
reinforce safety issues

By Cara C. Hood
Samaria 7’

Look a little closer the next time you
see children in Lexington trading collec-
tor's cards. Instead of cute little Japanese
monsters. local kids might be carrying
cards of members of the Lexington- Fayette
Urban County Division of Police.

Patients from the UK Pediatrics Clinic
thanked Lexington police officers for the
trading cards they receive when they visit
the clinic by presenting them with a hand-
made poster Tuesday afternoon.

Several officers were on hand to accept
the poster and meet the children who adv
mire them.

Grace Maguire. an UK pediatrician.

my Alumni Association. and decided to
start giving the cards to patients at their
clinic visits. Maguire uses the cards as a
way to reinforce safety issues to children.

Cards are available with pictures of 67
of Lexington's officers. and many feature
officers who perform their duties in a
unique way such as Officer Gina Beth
Smith with her horse and Sgt. Alan Martin
with his K-9 dog. Max.

Each card has a short biography that
includes their training and hobbies and a
safety message from the officer on the back.

Taiwan to get U.S. arms package,

WASHINGTON President Bush is offering
Taiwan a panoply of military equipment. includ-

while deferring sales of the item Taiwan wants
most: high-tech l' S. destroyers equipped with
the Aegis combat radar system The sale of such
equipment to Taiwan. which China considers a

between a US. spy plane and a (‘liinese jet that

The White House took pains to assuage Beijing's
concerns about the arms package. which was out-
lined to reporters Monday by several US. offi-

decision. But the White House also made clear
that future sales to Taiwan of the statoofthe-art

Pioneering woman,
always the teacher

Striving and succeeding: Sociology professor's life filled with
education and wisdom; Today she passes her knowledge on to others

By Donia Sflalhg


For many. the road to success is long. hard
and filled with challenging obstacles. But
Doris Wilkinson doesn't feel her struggle was
that burdensome.

Wilkinson was the first black woman hired
as a full-time faculty member at UK. She was
one ofthe first to enroll in the "historic" fresh-
man class a few months after the Supreme
Court's 1954 decision allowing blacks to enroll
in universities.

Graduate students at UK were admitted af-
ter Lyman T. Johnson's suit.

“You have to use the word
‘historic' because it is impor-
tant." she said. She was also
the first to finish in that class
on the Dean's List and re-
ceived her degree in less than
four years.

It was one year after
Wilkinson and 18 other
African-American students en-
tered UK that Rosa Parks took
a vacant seat in the front of a
City bus in Montgomery. Ala..
and refused to give her seat to
a white man. She was arrested and African
Americans organized a two-year bus boycott.

“It was very surprising at that time [to fin-
ish on the Dean‘s List]." the sociology profes-
sor said.

“I found UK to have been an intriguing en
vironment. and it was challenging but not dif-
ficult." she said.

Even though Wilkinson attended a racially
segregated elementary and high school. she
felt she got a very good education. “The ironic
thing was that I learned fundamental literacy
skills and math skills." she said. “I came thor-
oughly prepared."

“1 went to the real Dunbar." she added.
“the teachers equipped us." When Wilkinson
attended the “real" Dunbar. she could not go to
the movie theaters in downtown Lexington or
shop in some of the department stores or eat in
any of the downtown restaurants.

While UK did not desegregate until the
mid-twentieth century. "surprisingly it was a
very pleasant environment. with nice students
that were always smiling to let you know that
you were welcome." Wilkinson said.

“It was a very positive. very comfortable
climate." she said.

Nearing the completion of her doctorate
from Case Western Reserve University in med
ical sociology. Wilkinson was soon hired as a


full-time faculty member. “It was a very excit-
ing time and i had marvelous colleagues." she
said. She stayed at UK for twoand-a-half years.

It was her love for teaching. caring profes
sors and hard work that helped carve her way
to success.

“I think I played school with my parents as
a child. and l was always the teacher." Wilkirr
son said. She also worked extremely hard to
get where she is today. While studying for her
master's. she was hired to teach at Kent State
University. “I commuted from Cleveland (Case
Western Reserve) to Kent [to teach] and was
only a chapter ahead of the students because I
was a full'time student myself." she said.

She added. “dedicated teachers are so im-
portant for the learning process and student
growth. Chance as well as being a good student
brought me here and compelled me to become
a college professor."

“A university ought to be more than just a
series of courses but an enriched environment
for students to see art exhibits and to hear
quality lectures." she said. “Very little posi-
tive is known about African Americans and I
see it as a mission to reinforce the fact that
African Americans have been a highly produc
tive population in this country,"

Wilkinson is also interested in other areas
that she hopes to research. “I am interested in
studying university cultures. their values and
bureaucratic structures." she said.

She is also very interested in "the impact
of a university's history and its administrative
hierarchy on the intellectual life and its

”I think that the university could benefit
from a more multicultural. multi-ethnic facul-
ty pool." she added. “I'm not sure what the in-
centives are for good. quality African-Ameri-
can faculty, regardless of gender or age. to re-
main. for example. in a College of Arts and Sci-

While Wilkinson is successful today. she,
still admits to encountering barriers. "There
are African-American faculty and students
who face continuing obstacles. even I faced
them." she said.

Still. her greatest achievement was that
she established the African-American Studies
and Research program and founded the Black
Women‘s Conference. "because I developed
them from nothing , creations that attracted
the interest of students and faculty." she said.

Wilkinson's plans for the future are as
busy as her present and past. She wants to
write more books and play classical music.

“I love the task of creating an idea."

I think I played school with my
parents as a child...”
