Acting police chief
-« W . .. _ _ . .. Wants to also key on drinking, campus safety


When Kevin Franklin received the phone call informing him
that sophomore Thomas Byers was struck and killed by a train. he
was distressed. Not only was Franklin concerned as the eight-
weekold interim police chief. but also as a father

“I have an lByearold son. I can't imagine what it would be like
as a parent to get a phone call like that." he said.

“It really noubled me.”

The UK Police Department appointed Franklin, who replaced
former interim police chief Ken Clevidence. on July 5. Clevidence
served in the position for nine months after former UK police
chief Fred ()tto Ill resigned in November.

Franklin. who carries his registered nurse's license in his wal-
let and rides his motorcycle to work each day. said he's trying to be
the chief he always dreamed of working for.

The 23year veteran of the UK police department said that in-
cludes becoming more visible around campus.

“I didn‘t want to be an invisible chief who would show up in a
suit and tie everyday. and if you asked anybody on campus. they
could tell you who he or she was. but they couldn‘t tell you what
they lmk like." he said.

To help students recognize his face. Franklin spoke at three-
fourths of the summer student advisory conferences. He also
handed out water during the Cat Walk processional for new stu-
dents and did demonstrations at the Student Center Spectacular.

“I‘m in this uniform every single day because 1 want people to
know who the chief of police is here." he said. “I want people to
know that they can come up and ask me questions and that (I’m)

Those efforts include trying to increase student awareness of

Contract extension on agenda;
two new members settle in

By Troy Lyle


The board of trustees will meet in
closed sessions today
and tomorrow to dis-
cuss a possible con-

UK has created a website to
inform students and faculty
about university-wide disaster
relief efforts in the wake of Hur-
ricane Katrina.

In a press release yesterday.
Todd described the website as
“one small way to help share in-
formation” about the universi-
ty’s efforts and let people know
what other organizations across
the country are doing to help.

The other objective of the
website is to help accommodate
displaced students from schools

affected by the hurricane.

According to Jay Blanton.
UK executive director of public
relations. more than 20 under-
graduate and graduate students
from schools such as Tulane, the
University of New Orleans. Loy-
ola and other Gulf Coast institu-
tions have inquired about admis-
sion to UK for the fall semester.
In response. the university has
offered to assist students by of-
fering them in-state tuition and
accept financial aid from out of

When asked about the impor'
tance of this site. Blanton said.

“people want to feel a sense of
connection and know what they
can do to help."

“This site provides that abili-
ty," he said.

The Office of Undergraduate
Admission is working to place
these students in classes. and the
UK Counseling Center is pre-
pared to help students adjust to
the changes.

The website can be found on
UK’s main homepage by follow-
ing the UK Disaster Recovery
Resources link inside the recent-
ly added American Red Cross

See Web on page 3



Content on the new site:


I Contains links to six organizations
who are coordinating hurricane relief

I Information on UK fundraising ef-

Supreme Court's ‘good-bye' to chief justice emotional

O’Connor glanced in the direction of an oil paint-
ing of Rehnquist in his judicial robes. which had
been put on public display for the first time.

By Charles Lane


WASHINGTON —— By design. the Supreme Court
is the least emotional of Washington institutions A
one that prides itself on cool. reasoned legal debate.
Displays of passion by lawyers at oral argument are
frowned upon.

Yet yesterday morning, feelings flowed freely at
the court. as justices. law clerks and court staff
gathered to say good-bye to William Rehnquist, the
man everyone in the building had known simply as
“the Chief" for almost 19 years.

Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, on the eve of her
own planned farewell to the court, stood by Rehn-
quist‘s flag-draped coffin. trembling and sobbing
openly O’Connor is a tough 75-year-old who was
raised amid cattlemen and rattlesnakes on the Ari-
zona desert. a female trail-blazer on the court
known for zero tolerance of wayward attorneys.

But even O‘Connor could not contain her feel-
ings for a friend she first met at Stanford Law
School more than half a century ago.

As she took her place with her fellow justices.

“Nice portrait," she whispered through her
tears. as if complimenting Rehnquist himself. . .
O'Connor was flanked by Justices John Paul
Stevens. Antonin Scalia m brushing a tear from '

ever. until the board’s Sept. 20 meeting.
The board began its evaluation this
past June by compiling

from all 20 members.
Hardymon said
those comments as a
whole were “very posi-
tive,“ with the only
negative comments re~
lating to Todd's perfor-
mance in his interac-
tion with the campus.
The trustees‘ evalu-
ation found that Todd “needs to spend
more time on internal communica-
tions." Hardymon said. “He does a great
job with external communications."

Franklin said.

To curb responsible drink—
ing. the police department and
UK are focusing on education
and enforcement. he said.

“If you are under 21, and
you are out in public drinking.
you have to understand that
that is illegal, and if you get
caught. you will get a citation at
the minimum." he said.

Franklin is also hoping to
increase campus safety by pro
moting the Pedestrian Aware
ness Safety Program. or PAWS.

PAGEZ | Wednesday. Sept. 7 . 2005

The department started
handing out free safety reflec-
tors today to remind students
carefully cross the street. as
well as serving to make stu-
dents more visible to vehicles.

The decals are designed for
people to “put them on their
backpack. put them on their
bike. or wear them around
their neck," Franklin said.

“It‘s just a little thing to
help remind people to be safe.
and it has an intrinsic value of
being reflective and helping
people be seen better at night."

The PAWS program also
calls for enforcement of jay-
walking laws. While Franklin
said he doesn't want to resort to
issuing citations. it is a possibil-
ity for offenders. The depart-
ment issued four or five cita-

tions last year with lines rang-
ing from $111) to $150. he said.

Franklin said that while the
department does not intend to
give a ticket for every violation.
it will be concentrating on “ag-
gressive pedestrians."

“Like the ones who walk
right out in the middle of traf-
fic and stick their hand out to
stop cars." he said. “They are
just like aggressive drivers who
don't consider the other per-
son’s rights or responsibilities
on the ma

The department is also go
ing to consider infrastructure
changes. This includes creating
more pedestrian crossways as
well as better lit and better

fectively and efficiently com-
municate with faculty and
staff. and he's committed to
doing so," he said.

Trustee Stephen Bran-
scum said Todd is a "man
with strong morals. values
and principles."

“Dr. Todd loves this uni-
versity with a passion.“ Bran
scum said. “He makes every
decision with the university‘s
best interests in mind."

In its June meeting. the
board voted to give Todd his
maximum bonus of $100,000.
Todd accepted the entire
amount; in previous years. he
had denied all or part of the
bonus. citing UK's budget
crunch in his reasoning.

His current contract sets
his salary at $275,330 annually
This amount reflects the 4
percent pay increase given to
faculty and staff this school

In addition to his salary.

Todd is given a car and house

ing 15 percent of his annual

His total compensation for

bonus and 341.300 in retire-
ment benefits. is $416,630.

That amount is $118,151

tion of UofL President James

Board welcomes
two new appointees

Gov. Ernie Fletcher ap
pointed two new board mem-
bers last month. Retired pro
football player Dermontti
Dawson of Nicholasville was
appointed to replace Alice
Sparks. and real estate devel-
oper Penny Brown of Corbin
replaced Elaine Wilson.

Sparks' and Wilson‘s six—
year terms expired on June

Dawson. a former UK foot-
ball star. currently serves as
director of equity invest-
ments for Rector Hayden Real-


Dawson said he hopes that
being a former UK student-
athlete will help him bring in-
sight to the board.

“I‘ve been a student." he
said. “I know what it’s like
the problems they face."

Dawson added that he
hopes his tenure as a trustee
will be a positive experience.

"When I look back. I hope
to have made some good deci-
sions and guided the universi-
ty in the right direction."
Dawson said. “People are go-
ing to make mistakes. but
hopefully we. as a board, can
put our heads together to
make the best possible deci-
sions for UK."

Dawson graduated from
UK with a degree in education
in 1988.

Brown. who could not be
reached for comment, owns
Barata LLC and Brown Prop~
erties LLC. Brown also re-
ceived a bachelor's degree in
education from UK in 1984.

Building dangerously close to coast

By Michael Powell
and Michael Grunwald


BILOXI. Miss. — The hur-
ricane that flattened parts of
this coastal city and drowned
New Orleans. that tossed
casino boats into apartment
buildings and killed perhaps
thousands of Americans.
was a disaster long ago fore-

Scientists and environ-
mentalists have cautioned
for years that the nation's
coastline is dangerously
overbuilt. But with Ameri-
cans migrating in increasing
numbers to coastal counties,
construction only accelerat-
ed, and local officials increas-
ingly relied on technology
and luck to forestall catastro-
phe. As high-rise condomini-
ums and sprawling beach
homes have proliferated.
warnings have been consis-
tently ignored.

In Mississippi, 20 glitter-
ing casinos sprouted at the
water’s edge. An Army offi-
cial tried to impose a morato-
rium on casino projects
along the coast in 1998. but
was outmuscled by develop-
ers and Sen. Trent Lott. R-
Miss. All those casinos.
which employed 16.000 peo-
ple. now lie wrecked and bro-

The development pres-
sure comes from one im-
mutable fact: Americans love
waterfront property. And the
federal government has fu-
eled that love through flood
insurance that minimizes its
risks and by paying for infra-
structure such as bridges
and roads that makes it more

In the process, coastal de-
velopment often degrades the
barrier beaches and coastal
wetlands that can serve as
natural buffers against hur-
ricanes. “You just cannot jus-
tify massive building and re-
building near the most dan-
gerous property in the Unit-
ed States." said Orrin H.
Pilkey Jr.. a professor emeri-
tus at Duke University and a
specialist in coastal ecosys-
tems. “It’s a form of societal
madness." .

The Mississippi Delta.
scientists note. was the most
engineered and industrial-

ized delta in the world. but
disaster struck anyway. The
levees designed to protect
New Orleans were intended
only for a Category 3 hurri-
cane, and in previous years
critics had questioned
whether they could with-
stand a storm of even that
power. (Katrina made land-
fall as a Category 4 hurri-

“There‘s only two kinds
of levees." said Jane Bullock.
chief of staff at the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency during the Clinton
administration. “Ones that
have failed and those that
will fail.”

Evacuating huge num-
bers of people from New Or-
leans and from coastal areas
has long been seen as a prob—
lem. especially given the con-
centration of the poor in
New Orleans and the grow-
ing population in other parts
of the Gulf Coast.

Mississippi’s coastal
counties grow three times
faster than any other county
in the state. a pattern found
in many coastal states. and
fighting this trend is a lonely

hope this makes people in
the risk zones realize what
they’re up against."

None of this is inevitable.
In Japan. the government
has spent billions of dollars

Might this offer a solu-
tion for low—lying sections of
New Orleans?

“I’m not sure it's tenable
in this country to abandon a
city of that size. but New Or-
leans should not even exist
and hundreds of people are
dying to prove that point.”
said David Bush, a professor
of geology at West Georgia
University “To build it some-
where else would cost tril-
lions of dollars 7* but not to
make a move risks an even
greater disaster"

it‘s hard for some to see it
now that out of this chaos
is going to come a fantastic
