The Agony

The horror of it is
The very thought of
Monday mornings
echoes in my mind
like fingernails
running down a
chalkboard. As for
the lottery winners,
I'm sure they're
having a bright and
early morning. It sure
would of made my
first class better.
However, the odds of
winning the
Powerball were i to
80,000,000. This
absolutely blows my
mind. Millions of
people around the
country throw down
money, be it hard
earned or stolen, for
a chance to win the
big jackpot. I read
online that I was 931
more times to die of
poisoning than win
the Powerball, and
80 times more likely
to die in my bathtub.
Damn that sucks.

While these odds seem
to be tremendous,
there are however
some things that are
less likely to happen
than selecting the
proper six Powerball
numbers and here's a
list of my favorites.

It's less likely that one
day in the next
month the university
will announce that all
the construction on
campus is finally

that a day will pass in
Lexington where no
alcohol is consumed.

that the north campus
dorms will get air

that the Bengals are
more likely to win
the superbowl.

that you will e-mail us
with your feedback.

that my roommate will
actually get up and
turn his alarm off the
first time it goes off.

that the university
will outlaw

that guys will become
able to understand

that girls won't
become mad when
guys fail to
understand them.

that hell will freeze

that you'll get a good
deal at one of the

that campus food will
ever be good enough
to merit the prices
we pay.

that the Blazer food
court will ever have a
selection like the one
they did last year.

that the welcome Rick
Pitino receives upon
his return to Rupp
will be entirely good-

that Louisville will
actually win that

And the number one
thing that's less
likely to happen.

Restoration plans begin for building

The final figures: UK officials still uncertain of
insurance settlement and renovation start date

By Pad llaker

After a summer of sitting charred and empty, the Administration
Building is one step closer to restoration.
The committee in charge of restoring the building, which caught fire
in May, met on Friday to discuss the restoration process of the 120year-

old building.

Jack Blanton, senior vice president for administration, said although
it is not certain when the building will be finished, the debris has already
been cleared. He said Midland Contractors’ outlook for restoring the

building looks good.

Restoration has already begun on the building by clearing the rub
ble. Because of the mold in the building, a temporary roof will be built
before winter, and the building will be sealed and dried out.

“It is not known for sure when other construction will take place,”

Blanton said.

Price estimates of restoring the building have been submitted
through the contractor’s insurance. Liberty Insurance. It is not known
how much the final settlement with the insurance will be. but UK 03‘1-
cials are hopeful they will receive between $10 and 12 million.

“They have $11 million worth of coverage that is going to be put to-
ward the building, which will restore it to its original condition with
some depreciation taken into account." he said. “We have submitted our
'claim to the insurance through the state government."

The claim is currently being reviewed and a response will be given
next month. The people on the committee have consultants that will ne-
gotiate the final settlement at that time.

Architects have an original blueprint plan of the building that con-
struction workers will be able to follow.

The committee’s next meeting will be held Sept. 10 at 4 pm. in the

Gaines Center.

Blanton said the committee is not rushing to finalize anything just


“We don’t want to expedite renovation because we want to make sure
restoration is done the right way," he said.

Black professors leave UK for various reasons

Minority Affairs says UK already surpassed its
goal for 2002 in the hiring of black faculty

by Emily ”elm


Instead of beginning another
semester at UK this fall. Teresa
Unseld decided to leave UK's
campus for a historically black
college in North Carolina after 10
years of teaching.

The former associate profes-
sor of art education left UK at the
end of last semester to become an
interim chairwoman of the Art
and Music department at Win-
ston-Salem State University in
North Carolina.

Newspapers have accused
UK's retaining and recruitment
process for Unseld's career deci-


Unseld agrees that UK's re-
tention of black professors does
need to improve. but said her de-
cision to leave UK was a profes
sional one based on a career op-
portunity and a more diverse set-

“There are positive and nega
tive points and possible solutions
to the identified concerns on re-
cruitment and retention issues
facing UK‘s African-American
faculty." Unseld said.

Former UK Family Studies
Professor William Turner had his
decision to teach at a school in
Minnesota this semester. Unlike
Unseld. Turner said the retaining

and recruitment issue caused
him to leave.

Whatever reason professors
leave. Lauretta Byars. vice chan-
cellor of minority affairs. said a
professor's decision on leaving
UK usually depends on what op
portunities are given to them.

Byars said Turner was a
great example of this.

“Turner left UK because he
was given a great opportunity."
she said. “Minnesota gave him an
unbelievable package.

One of the reasons Turner
went to Minnesota was because
he received a salary increase.
Minnesota offered to pay Turner
twice the amount he received
from UK.

Despite the number of black
professors leaving. Byars said UK
employs 1.190 faculty of which ap
proximately 60 are black. She

said some see this fact as nega-
tive. which is why so much con-
troversy came up about UK not
retaining professors.

Despite the controversy.
Byars said the university has sur—
passed its goal of hiring 3.0 per-
cent of black faculty members by
2002. a goal that complies with
the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Byars said people might ar~
gue the percent is not high
enough. but the fact that UK has
already surpassed its goal shows
it is working.

Even though statistics are
out there. Byars said looking at
them can be challenging. To 869
positive statistics. Byars said the
numbers need to be reviewed as
an average of three to five years
instead of just one year. it is hard
to see the positive statistics on a
year by year study. she said.

The Student Newspaper at the Universit of Kentuck , Lexin



“The goal for many minority
L'K employees is determined by
affirmative action and the coun-
cil." Byars said. “The decision is
based on African~Americans
available for the respected field."

Even though she‘s not here
anymore. L'nseld is optimistic
about the issue. In fact. she be-
lieves UK is in the midst of being
a stepping stone to greater things,

“I have high hopes for UK
and I see growth (in the area of
diversity) at this institution.

She compared it to a relay

“Once a leg of the race has
been completed. the baton passes
on to the next person." Unseld
said. “The focus has been on
staying in the race and not drop-
ping the baton."

White House estimates surplus budget

WASHINGTON , The president‘s chief eco-

nomic rebound was near. helped by the adminis-

The midyear budget outlook released last
week by the White House estimated that the 2001
surplus would be $158 billion. just $1 billion more
than what‘s already committed to Social Securi-
ty. The figures represent about $123 billion less
than the last estimate in April

Republicans blame the lackluster economy
for the shrinking surplus.

Democrats argue the 10-year. $1.35 trillion

Radio. Radio: WRFL
offers Lexington a
different sound

By Curtis Tate


For most people. it would
be a surprise to hear a radio
station that plays reggae and
punk rock on weekdays and
Bluegrass. country and jazz on

But if you're tuned to 88.1
on your PM dial this is exactly
what you‘ll find. WRFL is a stu-
dent-run. non-commercial radio
station that broadcasts out of
studios at UK's Student Center.

“REL" stands for “Radio
Free Lexington." which is ex-
actly what the station has tried
to be for 14 years.

"We play everything you
wouldn‘t find on corporate.

helping hand with their out-
standing student loans. and

complete college or technical

training. The program would
allow eligible child-care
providers to have their loans
forgiven over a five year period:
20 percent after the first two
consecutive years of qualifying
employment. another 20 per-
cent after three years, followed
by 30 percent after each of the
fourth and fifth years.

A caucus on child-care. un-
der the sponsorship of Rep.
Bernard Sanders (I-VT), con-
ceived the program in response
to the growing need for child-
care. As the percentage of
working women with young
families climbs to 74 percent,

Sanders was one of the first to
point out that the industry that
cares for 13 million children un-
der the age of six everyday is
not only extremely expensive to
parents, but also under quali-
fied and understaffed.

“That is a combination he
fears will lead to more families
on welfare. neglected children.
and delinquency in the affected
children later in their lives."
Sanders said.

“Right now we have a ma-
jor crisis in child care. The cri-
sis is far. far worse than I had
ever imagined."

The station broadcasts 24
hours each day. requiring eight
disc jockeys to work three-hour

shifts on the air. Allen said all
