“The Student (Ienter and the

said. Burgess felt that the book-

standards of those in similar
sized schools, such as Louisville

New carpeting, improved air

the forecast. \Vooden fixtures for

Title IX compliance
not far from reality

Gender gap


at UK

By Brian Dunn
New Editor

Beth Leake is an :\ll-:\meri—
can diver for L'K.

She said such an accomplish-
ment would not have been possi-
ble ifit weren‘t for the sociologi—
cal changes brought by Title IX
v II law passed 35 years ago that
allows that no one be excluded
from participation in athletics.

“Ten years ago, I wouldn't
have been able to get It scholar-
ship,” lIeakc, an accounting
senior, said. “l“emale athletes can
have more of II chance."

()ne of the major and more
measurable goals ofTitle IX was
to increase female participation
in sports. .\nd female participa—
tion at L K has increased signifi-

cantly. Since 1991 female ath—
lctcs In varsity sports at L'K have
increased from 93 to 154.

The national average accord—
ing to the :\pril 1997 NCAA
(icnder-l‘iquity Survey for Divi—
sion l -\ universities was 151.

“I think we\e done a good
iob with (female participation),"

said Kathy l)cBoer, associate
director of athletics at L'K.

l)cl§ocr said a combination of

factors have contributed to the
growth of women’s athletics over
the years. Title IX hasn‘t worked
alone she said but has also
worked with changes In society.

“lhere have been lots of

strides made," she said. “ l here's
been tremendous growth."

But increased participation
isnt the only goal of litle lX
A'dyocatcs of the law also sought
to haye women s sports propor-
tionately match the populations
of the school

l‘or example, L'K's population

is just over 4‘) percent fetnale lf

L’K’s athletes are female.

llere, football, however, caus-
es a problem because 1-H (8‘)

scholarship and 55 walk-on) of

the 315 male athletes are football
players. There isn‘t an equivalent
women's sport to football that
has the number of participants so
the numbers can be skewed.

Not including football play—
ers, there are 171 male partici—
pants (5% percent) and 15-1
female participants (-17 percent)
in varsity sports at L K.

According to the L'KAA sur-
vey, males received 306 scholar-
ships including football and 117
not including football. Females
got 116 scholarships.

“I think l've had as good a
chance as any male athlete,"
Leake said. “1 think it’s been a
really fair experience."

But Leake said UK can look
to expand and offer more
women‘s sports to offset the dis—
crepancy caused by the shear size
of football participation.

“I would rather see college
programs expand to include
women as opposed to cutting
men's teams,“ she said.

Teen llltfll‘ll j0lll8
“ll Illlllllfl relations

By Kristy Clifford
Smfl‘ lVrirer

ln white overalls and a red striped T—
shirt, Natasha Fain looks like any 14 year-
old. The similarities end there.

Every morning, Fain crawls out of bed,
and heads to work in the UK public rela—
tions office. She Ripes, files and does
whatever is neede to keep the public
relations office running smoothly.

“Last summer 1 had more time for
friends,” Fain said. “But (I know) it's time
to get more serious.”

Fain acquired the job through the
mayor’s training program, or STFPS
(Summer Teen Employment Placement

STEPS gives teenagers a head start on
their future. Each year, UK President
Charles Wethington sets aside money in
the budget for the program.

Before an applicant can be considered
for a job, he or she must complete the
program and receive certification.
According to Fain, the training includes
how to act during an interview. After the
training, the teens are considered certi—
tied, and are ready to begin their new

When Fain decided to a ply for a job,
she called the Mayor’s o fice. She was
introduced to the STEPS program and
successfully completed her training pro-

Applicants must dress up and attend a
formal interview. Laura Holmes, an
employment officer for STEPS, hired
Fain and 12 other teens to work at UK
this year. There were 13 applicants. and
all were hired.

“I guess for once 13 turned out to be a
lucky number," Holmes said.

At first, Fain was afraid she might not
be experienced enough to handle her
duties. That fear quickly disappeared, as
she discovered that no one expected her
to know everything.

In the work environment, neither Fain
nor Assistant Director of UK Public
Relationsjohn Scharfenberger said she is
not treated any differently than her older

“\Ve are educating her and hope to
have her writing press releases later this
summer,” Scharfenberger said.

When asked about her job perfor—
mance, Scharfenberger described Fain as
bright, intelligent and enthusiastic no
matter what the task. “She is the model of
cooperation,” Scharfenberger said.

Fain admits missing spending time
with her friends, but knows her experi—
ence will benefit her.

“\Vhen (potential employers) see what
you have done, they are more likely to
hire you for a good job,” Fain said.

Another benefit Fain enjoys, is the
ability to buy school clothes for her fresh-
man year at Tates Creek High School.

In the future, Fain thinks she will
probably attend UK and go on to become
a lawyer. ller dream is to own her own
law firm.

ller STEPS application essay dis—
played her vision.

Fain wrote, “\'\'e have forgotten—what
our ancestors died for! You may not real-
ize it, but drugs, violence, racism, and
love for material things have taken place
ofa good solid education. How do I know
this? I face it every single day!"

According to scouts, UK is
close to signing a Mercer—like
player in the form of(Ileveland,

Vincent Yarbrough.

The ()‘l‘OOl-(i. lBU—pound

ate l‘iditor of Blue Ribbon (lol—

“lies a great player with a
tremendous upside."

Yarbrough may even have one
advantage over Mercer.

“Ron Mercer wasn‘t the
defensive intimidator that Vin—
cent is " Dortch said “(Vin-
cent s) got great jumping ability
and that allows him to block a lot
of shots."

But Dortch said Yarhrough
will likely have to add some mus-
cle to become the complete play -

“l he only knock on the kid is
that he’s slightly built but he can
get bigger and stronger " said
l)ortch. “However when you re
as quick as he is and can jump
over ‘em, his size might not hurt
him. "

lronically the recruiting bat—
tle for Yarlirough Is shaping up
the same way it did for Mercer
— Kentucky vs. lennessee.

One advantage for Tennessee
is that Yarbrou h's half-brother
l)ale Baker wil attend UT this

fall as a freshman.

“The family factor will defi—
nitely come into play,” said

Initially Yarhrough planned to
sign a letter of Intent next spring,
but the harrassment that comes
with being a prized recruit has
caused him to move up his
announcement date to later this

NCAA rules allow a player
two periods to sign a letter of

another next spring. Ihe early
signing period lasts one week
beginning Nov. 12 and the late
period begins the first week in
April and runs until May 15.

Yarbrough can verbally com—
mit to Kentucky at any time but
nothing will be final until UK
receives his letter of Intent.

\\’ith a 3.2 GPA in his core

Yarbrough should have no prob—

Progratn at Lexington Community

r'lihe Children‘s Summer Program.
started 30 years ago, is a hands-on
experience that combines learning and
fun for gifted students from Lexing—
ton-area schools.

It is organized by the Center for
Community Partnerships and the I.e\—
ington Community College.

“The progratn otters what most ele—
mentary or middle schools can't or
don’t offer," says Mary—Beth .\Iay,
Facilitator for Summer Programs.
u’I‘hey‘re classes they won‘t get any—
where else.“

’I‘he three sessions which run
through .-\ugust 8 are divided by age
groups: () to 8 years; ‘) to I]; and I:
toH and are instructed by PK and
I,( 1C faculty, field specialists and elee
mentary teachers.

“The nice thing about the program
is that the instructors are so knowl—
edgeable, when they meet the kids
they can figure otit what level the kids
are on." says May.

I‘iach of the courses is taught by
using handsoon experience, almost no
lecture is used in the sessions.

The program participants (150 per
session) get their hands involved in a
wide range of subjects: the arts (“Mini
Scul )tures." “Playwrighting"), physics
(“Ba loons (ialorel"), “Microbiology,"
cotnputer science (“\Veb Page
