Lexington explores replacing Rupp Arena

31 Ragga Swgm


The city of Lexington an-
nounced yesterday that it could re—
place Rupp Arena with an upgraded
basketball arena usitig funds gener—
ated from a new proposed down-
town taxing district.

“We need to consider the possi-
bility of a new basketball arena. ex-
panding lexington Center. and there
is a lot of interest in redeveloping
the Manchester Street corridor.“ said
Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry in a
news release. "Tax increment financ—
ing gives us many opportunities to
improve our community. and we
must fully explore them.“

Tax increment financing allows
cities to. redevelop deteriorated ar—
eas of town. The financing tool has
been available to Louisville for sev-
eral years. and a change in state law
this year made the option available
to Lexington. according to the news

"This is an incredible opportuni-
ty between the city and the universi-
tv.“ said UK spokesman Jay Blanton.

The city is looking at redevelop-
ing the district that encompasses
Lexington Center. Rupp Arena and
the Manchester Street area. Lexing-
ton can use the additional tax rev—
enues generated front redeveloping
this vicinity to fund redevelopment
projects within the area. which can-

not exceed three square miles.

“We want to look at facilities
for the institution. downtown revi-
talization and the Lexington econo-
my." Blanton said,

The Lexington Center ap—
proved issuance of a “request for
proposal“ to hire a consultant that
would examine the possibility and
proposed boundaries of the new
taxing district and evaluate oppor-
tunities and costs related to an are-
na that could seat 34.000 to 30.000

Approving the request for pro—
posal was the first step of a long
process. Blanton said.

“Our intent is to continue our
partnership with the civic center and





continue playing basketball in
downtown for a very long time.“
Blanton said.

Rupp Arena has been the home
court of UK basketball since I976
and has seen UK win 90 percent of
its home games. according to the
UK athletics Web site.

“We have a preeminent basket-
ball program in America. and we
want the preeminent facilities."
Blanton said.

No final decisions have been
made. Newberry said in the press
release. and the next steps for the
proposal are review by the Planning
Commission and approval by the
Lexington-Fayette Urban County

After two years of looking for ways to get involved with
the interior design major beyond going to class and doing
projects. junior Megan Drees decided to start a new organi~

lation for students interested in design.

The Interior Design Association. which is open to stu-
dents of all majors. had its first meeting in September to de-
termine how the club should operate and what students

wanted to gain from the organization.

About 20 people have joined the club. and officers are
encouraging more people to take advantage of the opportti»

nity to learn more about design.

”The purpose of this club is to get to know more people
within your major and gain more experience about intenor

jor and the club‘s president.

Members toured the woodshop in Pence Hall earlier this
month to learn about the tools it offers for design students.
and Drees said students are interested in bringing in design
professionals as guest speakers and taking trips to design

firms for future meetings.

USP proposal
start today

By Jill Lester


The process that could overhaul student re-
quirements for UK‘s university studies program
by 2009 continues with faculty forums today. to—
morrow and Thursday.

"We want this to go quickly as possible. but
we don‘t want it to seem like we‘re moving too
quickly." said Phil Kraemer. chairman of the USP
steering committee and associate provost for un~
dergraduate education. "We want to take this one
step at a time‘

The forums this week will be open to faculty
and students and provide “a very brief overview
of the process and substance of the proposal fol-
lowed by open comments and questions from
participants." Kraemer said.

Today‘s forum is from 10 to 1 1:30 am. in the
Student Center‘s Worsharri Theater.

The new ['SP requirements would require in—
coming freshmen in -009 to complete a set of
general education requirements consisting of 30
credit hours of courses that. with few exceptions.
students will not be able to use pre-major or ma-
jor credits to complete.

Different colleges have already submitted
consensus opinions on the new requirements to

"Initial conversation seemed favorable. but
extended conversation brought more concerns to

dents learning the process of critical thinking

UK to host

health summit
in 2008

Bit-Mien" Father!

l'K announced yesterday that it will host the
3008 Govemor‘s Get Healthy Kentucky Summit
in September to continue addressing the state‘s
growing health problems.

The announcement was made less than a
month after the program‘s first summit at the
l'nrversrty of Louisville brought together state
universities and other regional community
health leaders to address the problem of obesity
in Kentucky. along with other statewide health

The summits are part of Gov. Emie Fletcher‘s
(let Healthy Kentucky initiative. a program
aimed at improving health conditions and quality
of life iii the state.

Kentucky ranks seventh in the nation for the
rate of obesity among adults at 27.5 percent. ac-
cording to a study by Trust for America's Health.
The study also shows that Kentucky ranks third
for the rate of overweight children at 20.6 per

.lody Ensman. program manager for UK
Health and Wellness. said the summit at L' of l.
was successful in forming relationships among
university and state health specialists who can ef-
fectively address statistics such as these.

“The fact that we could bring together all of
these key leaders who have a vested interest in
the health and wellsbcing of Kentuckians was a
huge first step.“ [insnian said.

At the summit. participants listened to speak‘
ers and an expert panel talk on health concems in
the state. including childhood obesity and the
cost of health care.

After discussing existing and potential pro-
grams aimed at addressing state health problems
in breakout sessions. regional teams reconvened
and worked together to identify one strategic
wellness initiative that the group would imple-
ment over the next year. said Tammy Akin. a UK
Wellness specialist.

UK‘s Health and Wellness program will work
with community partners. such as the Lexington
Health Department. the YMCA and the Lexing-
ton Heraldlxader. to improve wellness in work-
places during the next year.

The Bluegrass Partnership for a Fit Ken-
tucky had already started creating a worksite
wellness program. and the regional team decided
to work with the organization to “strengthen
what had already been lard as a foundation.“ En-
sman said.

UK in the
thick of SEC

race with four
games left

The road through the Southeastern C on-
ference is a tough challenge and is not just a
test of what‘s humming under the hood. btit
what's in the gas tank.

To start the season. both Florida and
Louisiana State had the Georgia Dome on
their minds with hopes
of playing there for the
conference champi-
onship. Now in the
ninth week. it‘s the oth-
er teams that are breath—
ing down their necks,
making the race for the
SEC title as competitive
as it‘s been in years.

Obviously one of
those teams is UK, who
originally had the goal
of “being a factor“ in
the race. as head coach
Rich Brooks said earlier in the season. After a
5-0 start. the goals inside of Commonwealth
Stadium quickly changed from just being a
bump in the road for other teams to winning
the SEC.

However. it was a loss on the road to that
coach who I will not name that opened the
hydrant. and the Gators came in two weeks
later to officially hose the Cats down.

It‘s true. The Cats are down. but they're
not out.

Florida‘s win over UK simply meant that
the Gators now control their own destiny of
representing the SEC Eastern Division in At—
lanta. The team from The Swamp is in a
three-way tie with Georgia and South Caroli-
na for the lead in the division. Florida will
play Georgia on Saturday and will travel to
Columbia, SC. on Nov. It) to battle the

What hurts the Cats‘ hopes of winning
their division is that they‘ve already lost to
two of the three teams ahead of them. To be
the best you have to beat the best. which is
something UK didn't do.

However. there is something called grace.
and the football gods must be shinning down
on the Cats. They still have to play Georgia
on the Bulldogs' home turf. a game either
team can win. There is no predictable win in
college football this season. and the SEC is
certainly not an exception. Vanderbilt beat
South Carolina last weekend. and Mississippi
State. who the Cats will host Saturday. got a
road win against Auburn early this season.

"We‘re talking about a team that went in
and beat Auburn at Auburn." Brooks said
about Mississippi State. one of many teams to
go into a game as an unranked underdog and
knock off a ranked opponent.

In order for UK to crawl back into being
a real contender for the division. the Cats
will have to become a two-headed monster
cheering with pom-poms in one hand. and a
devil‘s advocate with a fork in the other
hand. all while playing stellar on the field.
They have to hope a team or two can step up
and get big wins against Florida and South
Carolina. If that happens. then all the Cats
have to do is run the table with the remain—
ing games on the schedule. That‘s a feat that
would have been followed by a chuckle and
a “yeah right“ a few years back. but there's
something about these new-age Cats.

Last season‘s 34—3l win over MSU
sparked a 5—l run to end the season. Can
lighting strike twice in one spot‘.’

We‘ll see.

Things are topsy—turvy in college football.
and there‘s a surprise every weekend. so I
wouldn‘t be shocked if the Gators and Game-
cocks let the Cats back in. But then again. if
they didn‘t. I wouldn‘t be shocked either.

At any rate. we‘ll see if the Cats have any
light left in the tank to get to the finish line

Cats hope to avoid sli

elindsay®ltylternel com

Before battling top-25 opponents South Caroli-
na. Louisiana State and Florida. college football
analysts and experts around the nation questioned
if UK could contend for a Southeastem Confer-
ence championship.

While the No. l4 (‘ats went just l—Z dtiriirg the
brutal thrce~ganre stretch. UK at least proved that
it‘s a legitimate SEC contender after going toevto
toe with some of the pow erhoUses of the SliC.

If the Cats want to remain in the SEC race.
they‘ll have to avoid a slip-up against a weaker op-
ponent in Mississippi State on Saturday.

The Bulldogs are just two games away from
reaching bowl eligibility with four games left. a sit-
uation reminiscent to the Cats in 2006 when they
reeled off four victories in their last five games to
beconre bowl eligible.

"They really are in the same situation we were
in last year." said sophomore defensive tackle
Corey Peters. “Now that I know how that feels. I
think that‘s going to give us a little more motiva-
tion to work harder this week.“

After getting off to a quick 3-1 start. the Bull-
dogs have faded of late. losing three of their last
four games to South Carolina. Tennessee and West
Virginia. Despite their recent struggles. head coach
Rich Brooks pointed to the Bulldogs huge win at
Aubum earlier in the year as to why the Cats can‘t
afford to overlook the Bulldogs this week,

“They‘re an improved team. there isn‘t any
question about it.“ Brooks said at his weekly news
conference yesterday. “I‘m sure nvuch like we were
(last yearl. they‘re looking for consistency w cek-to-

combining to throw more interceptions ( ll ) than
touchdowns (5).

“The inconsistency is what gets under your
skin as a coach." Brooks said. "I just hope they
wait another week to find that consistency."

the College of Engineering is the fact that
engineering students will see the largest tn-
crease iii credit hours." the letter submitted

by the College of Engineering said. "Itngi-
neering students are already at the upper
end of total credit requtrement ”

The forums are the next step in getting
faculty feedback before official debate in
the University Senate next month. Kraemer

”We will meet and we will look at all
the feedback and we will discuss it." he
said. "We want the Senate to know we've
really got broad-based support here."

The Senate could vote on the proposed
requirements as early as December.

Tomorrow‘s forum will be from 3:30 to
5 pm. iii the Worsham Theater. and Thurs-
day‘s will be from 3:30 to 5 pin. iit room
20] of the College of Nursing Btiilding.
