to UK

THE “mum mm

Half a world away from
Indonesia. UK faculty and
alumni are working to fund
the rebuilding efforts at a
university in one of the re-
gions hardest hit by the
Dec. 26 earthquake and

“It‘s unbelievable. but it
happened.“ said John
Ragland. a professor emeri-
tus in the College of Agri-
culture and one of the fac-
ulty members spearheading
the effort. “Those people
who are suffering are stu-
dents just like we were."

The University of Syiah
Kuala. also known as Un-
syiah. is one of eight In-
donesian universities that
UK helped by training grad-
uate students to be faculty
and staff there. Nearly 200
members of Unsyiah‘s staff
received masters and does
toral degrees from UK in
the 19805.

As part of the fundrais-

of Wahab. Ragland said he
learned that Wahab sur-
vived the disaster, but no
other information is avail-
able because no one has
been able to make further
contact with him.

”It's about a community

part of the UK community.

his friend. Hizir Sofyan. 30

and equipment on campus
were damaged. not by the

will be used are incomplete.

“This is tentative be-

The donated money will be

Agency plans trips to southeast Asia

By Ashlee Key

Students now have an
opportunity to travel and
volunteer where the Dec. 26
tsunami in Southeast Asia
hit hardest.

Local company STA
Travel and partner compa-
ny i-to-i have teamed up to
offer a community building
program to volunteers will-
ing to help with the disaster
relief efforts in the Dehi-
wala suburb of Colombo.
Sri Lanka.

According to STA Trav-
el. the two-week program
will send anyone. including
students. to Sri Lanka to
help at refugee camps. Vol-
unteers will help with a va-
riety of duties. including
putting up tents. rebuilding
homes for 3.000 refugees.
and helping with health and

“1 would definitely go
with the volunteer group to

help the Sri Lankans. if I
had the chance." said UK’s
International Student
Council president Maiya
Delgoda. “This Would mean
a lot to the international
students here at UK and
also will definitely set an
example for the rest of the
students and the communi-
ty in Lexington."

The death toll in South-
east Asia has risen to over
200.000 people. and the
tsunami caused an estimat-
ed $14 billion worth of dam-
age across the 11 devastated

STA Travel and i-to-i in-
troduced the program in re-
sponse to the large numbers
of inquiries received from
people wanting to help in
the disaster relief efforts.

“Volunteer travel is an
amazing learning experi-
ence." said Lee Ellis. UK's
branch manager of STA
Travel. “You get to be an ac-
tual part of the country and

not just a tourist."

Volunteers are asked to
pay $895. of which $200 will

86 Senator begins
bid for presidency

Becky Ellingsworth vows to promote
student rights. change culture at UK

By Tricia McKenny

Emerging from the crowd accompanied by flashing lights
and blaring music. Student Government Sens. Becky
Ellingsworth and Kyle Burns kicked off their campaign for
SC president and vice president last night in the gallery of
the William T. Young Library.

Ellingsworth and Burns were met by cheers and applause
from about 150 supporters as they announced their candida-
cies and introduced the rest of the students running for SC
positions under what they called the UK Students First ban-

Before introducing Ellingsworth. Burns described the
platform as “a new way of life for UK students" and de-
scribed the campaign as the beginning of change at UK.

After thanking supporters and students for taking an in-
terest in SC. Ellingsworth. a communication junior, echoed
the description of her campaign‘s platform as one of change
and stressed her desire to put students first at UK by educat-
ing. empowering and elevating them.

é‘We have an opportunity to do great things." Ellingsworth
sai .

“Our candidacy and our mission throughout the cam-
paign is to bring about a cultural change at UK We are go
ing to change the culture by making student rights a priority
for everyone V students. faculty. staff and officials at the uni-
versity. city. state and national levels." she said.

Ellingsworth said she wants to educate students about
their rights at UK. empower students by ensuring them that
80 will be behind them and elevate students by focusing on
what it means to be a UK student.

Ellingsworth also outlined ways to improve safety. com-
municat ion and student services.

Some of the plans include providing online video of SO
meetings. improving the campus parking situation. creating a
student rights commission and expanding SafeCats and pro-
viding a free weekend taxi service for increased safety mea—

Ellingsworth later introduced the senate candidates run-
ning with her and Burns. and she said after the event that she
believes these candidates have the same goals and desires to
see these plans through.

“(The senate candidates) believe in the same things I do
and are people that are proactive.“ she said.

“I believe they will get involved and work toward the same
goals." Ellingsworth said.

Senator at-large candidate Christie Mitchell. a communi‘
cation and musical performance freshman. said she is willing
to work toward these goals because she believes Ellingsworth
and Burns have a vision that will benefit UK.

"They are there to help students. and not just for name
recognition. They will be proactive and fight for student
rights." Mitchell said.

Being proactive and taking action are things that SG
needs. said agricultural biotechnology sophomore Brandon
()wen. “The potential for good things is there. but (students)
must feel that we are involved in 80." Owen said.

Burns said the candidates were very pleased with the in-
volvement from students and the response at the event.

"We received a positive response from students. which is
reassuring that we are doing the right thing for students."
Burns said.

Other candidates for SC positions. including SG president
and vice president. will be announcing their candidacies in
the coming weeks.

Todd lobbies for more funding in trip to state capital

8y Troy Lyle
in: Human ktnuri

FRANKFURT. Ky. President Lee Todd
spoke before an interim Senate education
committee yesterday to stress the need for in-
creased higher education funding in the up-
coming General Assembly session.

“Higher education is getting the short end
of the budget stick." he said. “Last legislative
session we reached a plateau. and plateaus
are dangerous. If we don’t get (adequate
funding) in this session. the plateau will start
to decline."

The session formally starts today. with
Gov. Ernie Fletcher's State of the Common-
wealth address to the assembly at 7 pm.

As part of the push for increased funding
for UK. Todd and UK‘s government relations
department put together a list of priorities
outlining the university's needs.

The list includes additional operating
funds to support growth. increased bonding
authority and construction of a biological
sciences and pharmaceutical complex.

All three priorities are important. said
Steve Byars. UK's government relations dinec-


tor. but increased operating funds are critical
since UK has seen budget cuts in recent years.

The Consensus Forecasting Group. com-
posed of leading economists from Kentucky
universities. has projected an in:
crease in state revenues about
$622 million according to the state's
budget office but a lot of the
money has been claimed. he said.

“However. We are cautiously op
timistic the state will allocate some
of those funds to UK." Byars said.

Despite the recent budget cuts.
the state has put significant re-
sources into postsecondary educa-
tion since 1998. and Kentucky has
done a great deal to increase re-
sources in higher education. said Jim Apple-
gate. vice president of academic affairs for
the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Edu-

"But we're playing catch up compared to
other states and we‘re going to need more re-
sources from our legislators." he said. "We're
working hard here to make sure the state re-
alizes that one of the long term solutions to
Kentucky‘s problems. such as public health



“We're trying

focus on higher education.

ucated citizens to be competitive in the fir

Kentucky's colleges and univer-
sities have to compete for national
talent. Todd said.

“We're trying to work our way
out of a hole." Todd said. “We des-
perately need the cash to make this
happen if we're going to achieve a
top-20 status."

Thomas Layzell. president of
the Kentucky (‘ouncil on Postsec
ondary Education. also urged the
committee to consider increasing
funding for higher education. “We're serious-
ly concerned that achieving this top20 status
by 2020 isn't going to happen." he said.

There are several indicators warning that
higher education is starting to suffer in Ken.

aid or grants is remaining the same or de-
clining. he said.

“Public education in Kentucky is still a
very good deal despite all these tuition in-
creases." said Todd. pointing to Kiplinger's
Magazine's rankings placing UK as the
fourth-best overall value among public uni-
versities in the nation.

Despite the magazines findings. the Coun-
cil for Postsecondary Education found that
between 1999 and 2004. tuition increased 10
percent while the state's general fund de
clined by 10 percent.

Coming on the heels of a hiring freeze for
UK staffers paid through general funds. Todd
said UK is doing everything it can to make
the campus more efficient to offset costs.

“We want to earn the respect from you the
legislators and the citizens of Kentucky." he
said. referring to the fact that he and all the
presidents of Kentucky's colleges are doing
all they can to maximize efficiency

"We are trying to keep tuition increases
down and use our money wisely“ Todd said.
“So don‘t ignore higher education when fund-

ing time comes."

The President's Commission on
Diversity is seeking nominations for
tliie 2005 President’s Award for Diver-
S t)!

UK established the President's
Award for Diversity in honor and ap
preciation of those who have demon-
strated outstanding efforts toward ad-
vancing the university's mission of
embracing diversity while maintain-
ing academic excellence.

The President’s Award for Diversi-
ty will be awarded in six categories:
UK student, UK staff member, UK fac-
ulty member. UK administrator. UK
unit or department, and other indi-
vidual or agency from Kentucky.

Recipients of the President’s
Award for Diversity will receive $500
and a plaque in recognition and ap
preciation of their achievements.

A public award ceremony will be
held April 1. Deadline for nomina-
tions is March 4.

Award criteria and nominations
can be found at





In yesterday's article “Todd bans
staff hires to save money," the 3,000
staff positions affected by the hiring
freeze are strictly “general fund posi-
tions." In total, more than 10,000 staff
members work at UK, including those
at the hospital. The article failed to
mention that the hiring freeze does not
affect the Chandler Medical Center.
since the state government does not
fund the majority of its staff positions.

Also. the Staff Senate has not taken
any action on the December 2004 report
cited in the article, and questions re-
main about some of its findings, said
David Ellis. chairman of the Senate.
The figure of 61 percent of staff mem-
bers living below the “Lexington living
wage" is therefore incorrect.

Yesterday's article “Senate revisits
cheating rule" made several incorrect
statements. First. under the proposed
policy, any punishment the instructor
decided to apply to a student caught
cheating would need approval from the
department chair.

Second, the proposed “XE" or "XF"
marking on that student‘s transcript
would only be applied if the instructor
thought the offense deserved that spe-
cial marking. If that is the case. the in-
structor then must get the approval of

that college's dean in order to do so.
Otherwise, the failure of the class
would still show up as an “E" which is
the current policy

Finally. if a student is caught cheat-
ing or plagiarizing more than once, the
minimum punishment will be denoted
on the transcript as an “XE" or an

Tubby Smith never looks
ahead. but that doesn‘t mean
we can‘t.

'l‘ h e
UK head
coach nev-
er strays
from the
a t - t i m e
script. and
that‘s the . ' '
reason his Tlm
‘ 9.8 ”1.5 Wiseman
maintain SPClTTS EH10; '
the same
s i n g l e -
minded focus.

But for fans. it's hard to
keep from looking ahead
let's just do this.

After another hard-
fought. gritty win on the
road over Arkansas last Sat-
urday. UK stands at 7-0 in the
Southeastern Conference.
And since the SEC is far
from its usual strong self.
one begins to wonder if the
Cats can run the table in the
rest of league play. (My
apologies to Coach Smith .
this is just talk. innocent

Georgia head coach Den-
nis Felton would not be sur-

“1 think it is realistic."
Felton said. “Kentucky has
been that type of team in
this league forever. They
have routinely had the type
of team and coaching that
could possibly run the table."

That we can even throw
this idea around on Feb. 1 is
a testament to Smith‘s skills.

Since he came to UK. the
Cats are 95-24 in SEC play.
Florida has the next best



record over that same span


The key to this success
has been the ability of
Smith‘s teams to win on the

“The commitment that
the rest of us need to make is
that championships are won
on the road. not at home."
South Carolina head coach
Dave ()dom said. “it’s a giv-
en they (UK) are going to
win at home. but they will
win and compete on the road

the rest of us look at it as
we are almost whipped be-
fore we go on the road.“

Over the last seven sea-
sons. Smith's Cats have gone
42-18 on the road in the SEC.
a winning percentage of .700.
The SEC average for the
same period is .330.

When asked about it.
Smith shares little. letting
his record speak for itself.

"We try to focus on get-
ting better that particular
day." he said. “It is a pretty
good record against pretty
good talent."

There's an understate-

Smith has owned the
SEC since he came to UK.
and he has a chance to add to
that legacy this season. If
any coach can pull off the
third undefeated SEC season
in the last 50 years. Smith
can (he had one of those two
in 2002-03). He just knows
how to win in this league.
that‘s all there is to it.

It's probably because he
refuses to look past anyone.
That‘s boring. but only in the
way a 160 SEC record is.
