Trustees approVe bonding for basketball facility

By Troy Lyle

UK’s Board of Trustees autho.
rized the sale of $7.1 million in
bonds yesterday to shore up fund-
ing for the $30 million basketball
practice facility already under con-
struction behind Memorial Colise-
The motion passed with a 12-4
vote. Three board members were
not present and another left early
due to a sudden illness.

The board’s approval was the

second phase of issuing
this project’s bonds. The
first occurred this past
spring, when the General
Assembly gave UK authori-
ty to issue the bonds. Any
project costing more than
$400,000 must be approved
by the state legislature.
“The project had been
on our list of capital pro-
jects for the last two
years.” said Jay Blanton,
UK’s public relations and
marketing executive direc.

donations and athletic fundraising,
which was the proposal introduced
to the board in 2003. To expedite
that process, UK added the facility
to its capital projects list in 2004.

That legislative term ended in
partisan gridlock, with the state
failing to approve a budget or any
capital projects.

Several board members ex-
pressed concerns yesterday with
the switch from the private dona-
tion plan to the UK bonding plan.

Trustee Jeff Dembo, one of two
faculty representatives, said ap-

proving this motion sends the

and students, as well as the rest of

More than 40 faculty, administrators and staff
gathered for a nationwide Web conference in the
WT. Young Library yesterday to discuss diversity

in university staffs across the nation.

The conference, entitled “Best Practices in Re-
cruiting and Retaining Diverse Faculty," was con-
ducted via the Internet and had an audience of at
least 180 other institutions and individuals from

across the nation.

“The desired outcome of the Web conference
was to help gain a better understanding of the is-
sue at hand in recruiting and retaining diverse fac-
ulty in order to increase diversity on our campus,”
said Terry Allen, UK associate vice president for
Institutional Equity and chair of the Research
Challenge Trust Fund Diversity Committee.

Dr. Charmaine P. Clowney, director of Diversi-
ty and Equal Opportunity in the Pennsylvania
State System of Higher Education, conducted the
conference. She has more than 15 years experience
as a higher education diversity executive, consul-
tant and attorney. In her role with the Pennsylva-
nia State System of Higher Education. she has
been a consultant to 14 universities on issues relat-
ed to diversity policies, institutional access, multi-
culturalism and employment equity. She has also
presented more than 100 diversity-training semi-
nars for universities. Fortune 500 companies and

federal agencies.

President Lee Todd took a few moments at
the beginning of yesterday’s Board of
Trustees meeting to address the ever-present
issue of diversity on campus.

His address could likely be linked to a 40
percent drop in black freshman enrollment
this fall and what the state’s council on sec-
ondary education called an insufficient num-
ber of blacks in key staff and administration

These three shortfalls resulted in the
board applying for a waiver from the state
council on postsecondary education at its last
meeting on Sept. 20.

The waiver was approved through the end
of this year, with UK scheduled to return to
the council with a plan of action early next

Without that waiver. UK would not have
been able to add any graduate or undergradu-
ate programs through 2005.

Todd reiterated UK’s commitment to di-
versity telling the board that he and the ad-
ministration are already taking several steps
to address this issue, including such mea-
sures as eight new recruiting and admissions
positions, appointing a new commission on
diversity chair and an additional $500,000 in
scholarship funding.

The $500,000 will be added to the already
existing $2.8 million in scholarship funding
provided for students. he said.

He continued by adding that he plans on
handing a plan to the commission on diversi-
ty to implement several of these strategies
very soon.

He illustrated his point

only “Bucks for Brains" fac-
ulty member in the state.

That‘s extremely impor—
tant. he said. but “that‘s not
nearly enough we must

J turns to rate firm
for new vending machines

By Hayley Schletlrer
nit maroon m

To bring fresher and
healthier items to campus.
UK has turned to Canteen
Corp. to oversee its more than
200 vending machines.

Previously the machines
were filled and monitored by
UK, but the school made the
change this spring to serve
campus more efficiently.

“This is something we be
gan reviewing in the fall
2004." said Jeff DeMoss. exec-
utive director of UK’s dining
services. “We came to the con-
clusion that an outside source
could do better in snack vend-

As a result. about 11
healthier-option machines
were added in residential ar-
eas and in the Johnson Cen-
ter. The rest of the vending
machines are being moni-
tored more frequently to pro-
vide fresher snacks. he said.

The switch has many ben-
efits for students. DeMoss
said. including more options
and a variety of foods that
weren‘t available before.

Those include healthier

fans. the training staff. or
Cook himself.

Cook’s comeback also had
an effect on the coaches. who
saw through the paltry stats
to an inspiring event in lead-
ership that doesn’t come
along very often in a coach’s

“Tommy Cook is one of
the most outstanding young
men I’ve known in my coach
ing career." Brooks said.
“He‘s gone through as much
or more as any player I’ve
ever coached. and he did a lot
of it before I got here."

Cook is known around the
squad as a leader. the guy you
go to.

Even when you‘re leaving
the field on a stretcher togeth-
er. like he and sophomore
wide receiver Keenan Burton

“We just talked about how
we can’t question why things
happen. We signed up to play
football. and unfortunately.
it’s a sport where injuries can
happen,” Cook said.

“Tommy was down. but
we got to talking and we know
we‘re gonna get through it,"
said Burton. who is recuper-
ating from a broken foot suf-
fered against Idaho State.

So for the Cats, Cook‘s
leadership was another rea-
son it was painful to watch
him be helped off the field

“When Cook went down,
it was like a knife in the stom-
ach," Brooks said. “He‘s al-
ways gonna be where he’s
supposed to be. which can't be
understated. . He always
does what he’s supposed to do.
on and off the field."

Even when he goes down.

Cook came back. like he
always does. ever since he
sheared his left ankle bone
his junior year of high school.

“I broke it the first play of
the first game." he said.
“Then I came back and re—
broke it the sixth play of the

options such as microwave-
able oatmeal cups, turkey
sandwiches. canned fruit.
whole fruit such as apples and
oranges. orange juice and
juices such as V8.

William Harris. director
of purchasing for UK. said
the Canteen Corp. took con-
trol of campus vending on
April 25. 2005. adding several
new refrigerated. healthier-
option machines.

According to DeMoss. the
new contract also benefits stu-
dents and UK financially Like
the contract with Pepsi for
soft drink vending. this new
contract would bring money
back into the school for schol-
arships and other expenses.
he said.

Many students said they
have yet to see the benefits of
this new contract.

“I haven‘t noticed any
change." said Pam Braden. a
family and consumer sciences
senior who frequents Erikson

“It seems to be mostly the
same stuff as before."

DeMoss said that while
many machines will offer the
same options as previous

sixth game."

Cook said his family’s
emotions in watching him re-
turn to the field haven‘t been
fear as much as apprehen-
sion. They know he wants to
get back out onto the field. but
they want him to be more

“I wouldn't really call it
fear." Cook said. “They just
had the apprehension. they
wanted to make sure I was
good enough to get out there.
You just have to reassure
them that the training staff
knows what they're doing and
to trust their judgment."

His family has had plenty
of opportunities to be appre-
hensive. But they never tried
to talk Cook out of playing.

“Everyone‘s always been
real supportive of me. They’d
tell me to run a little faster or
be more careful. but that‘s all
the advice I’d get." Cook said.

He never thought about
throwing in the towel, saying
I quit. I'm done. this is too
much crap for one guy to go

Cook has had his team-
mates A his closest friends
from the past six years w to
help him.

“I‘ve played sports for so
long. I don‘t know anything
else. to tell you the truth."
Cook said. “You lose the team-
mate camaraderie. that’s a big

“You feel like a stray.” said
Cook’s best friend and former
UK wide receiver Gerad Park-
er. who missed 22 of 45 games
in his UK career due to her-
nia surgery. breaking his col-
larbone twice. getting stitches
in his shin and tearing a mus-
cle in his back. “The best
thing you can do is set a vocal
example. but it's better if you
can get out there and show it.
especially for the younger

The loss of teammates is a
big enough void to make a
guy want to go through six
separate stints of rehabilita-
tion to get back out there and
join them Even with all the
fear of coming back to the
game that hurt you.

“There‘s always a fear. be-
cause there‘s a good possibili-
ty that you’ll re-injure the
part you already hurt." Cook

years. machines in certain ar-
eas. like in the Johnson Cen-
ter. are offering a new well-
ness program. which consists
of healthier snacks.

DeMoss also noted with
the addition of the new resi-
dential areas on North and
South Campus. there was a
need for more machines.

One student noticed fewer
payment options on some
vending machines.

“The machines that I have
seen this year. like the ones in
my dorm. don't have the card
swipe so you can pay with
your Plus Account." said
Jared Rollins. a sophomore
business major who lives in
the new dorms on South Cam-

Still. students said the
vending is the most conve-
nient option between classes.

“It's a little bit more ex~
pensive than if you went
someplace else. but I heard
that the money went to a
scholarship fund.“ Braden
said. “And I only have 15 min.
utes before my next class

said. “That’s the last. mental
obstacle to overcome. You for-
get about it with reps and
when you practice on it.“

Cook said that the train-
ers. Madaleno and Paul Sil-
vestri. “do everything. from
top to bottom. They put me on
the stretcher after the injury"
and did everything from aid—
ing Cook‘s rehabilitation by
spotting him during work
outs. to giving him ice and
heat for the pain. to coaching
him through the days when
there would be a lull in the

“Even the Tommy Cooks
get down days.“ said
Madaleno. UK's director of
sports medicine and the head
athletic trainer for football.
“They don‘t want to be in the
trainer’s room. But as far
as work ethic. he's definitely
in the top 10 percent of people
I‘ve ever worked with."

Although Cook describes
his condition as “80 percent
on a good day." he still har-
bors a dream of playing at the
next level someday. And he
knows that more rehab is in
