Not an ‘easy’ street Students, police recognize safety issues near campus By Andrew Pillow firstname.lastname@example.org
For many students on UK’s campus, Elizabeth Street has a reputation that precedes any real notion of the neighborhood a few blocks away. Frequent parties, abduction, assaults and gunshots are all things residents of Elizabeth Street are all too familiar with. The area in and around Elizabeth Street has developed a history among students and neighbors as a problem area, but there is a growing perception not much is being done to solve the neighborhood’s problems. Some students say they do not feel safe walking around in the area. “Oh, I don’t walk around at night,” said Maggie Tincher, a second year physical therapy student. Tincher, who is relatively new to this area of off-campus student housing, said she hasn’t had any problems yet, but is well aware of the history. “We’ve only lived here for like a year, so I never had anything happen but you always hear people talk about State Street (which crosses Elizabeth Street),” Tincher said. “We keep the doors locked.” The problems plaguing the Elizabeth Street area are seemingly numerous. Alcohol and party violations, female students being picked up by strangers and later sexually assaulted, and more incidents dot the headlines seemingly every semester. For some, the crime is so bad they fear for loved ones being the next target. “I feel fairly safe but I understand girls not feeling safe,” said Marc Ruberg, a business enter-

I heard the shots and
the police showed up like 15 minutes later.” Not everyone shares the thought that the neighborhood is too dangerous. 3rd District Councilwoman Diane Lawless, who’s district includes the Elizabeth Street area, said students are generally safe but also suggested students can be safer in their planning and habits. “I think in most cases (students) are (safe),” See Elizabeth on page 4

UK to host new lab Ky. becomes leader in learning reform By Brian Shlonsky email@example.com
The police are around but it seems like they’re more around to bust up parties than to make sure everyone is safe.”
Students will have a chance to let administrators know their thoughts on tuition face to face Wednesday. Frank Butler and Angie Martin, vice presidents for finance, are hosting a forum to discuss tuition and fee rates for the upcoming academic year on Wednesday at noon in the Butler Wo r s h a m Theater in the Student Center. Students received an e-mail announcing the forum on Monday. UK spokesman Jimmy Stanton said the forum is an opportunity for students to receive preliminary information related to tuition for next year and also to ask any questions they may have. The forum will focus on tuition and fees, which are used to fund student services. Alyssa Lanter, an integrated strategic communications junior, said she would like to hear the administrators answers because she feels unaffected by the fees she pays. “The yearly tuition increases are ridiculous because I never see any changes that affect me personally other than the payment,” Lanter said.
ly’s extensive collection. Kelly said collecting is a major part of his life. “Acquiring something used by an Olympic athlete has always been really special to me,” Kelly said. “I’ve always been a collector, since my childhood baseball card collection.” Kelly urged those in attendance to attend events like the Olympics, World Equestrian Games and sporting events in general, because each event could be one of a kind. Kelly also had some advice for those who decide to attend such events. “Grab a permanent memory and take it home, even if it’s something small,” he said.
A new lab at UK looks to help transform education in Kentucky as part of a partnership for higher learning. Kentucky, along with Maine, New York, Ohio, West Virginia and Wisconsin, was chosen as one of the six states to lead the nation in developing transformative educational practices as part of the Chief Council of State School Officers’ Partnership for Next Generation Learning. “Being one of only six states selected represents the hard work Kentucky has done over the last 20 years, beginning with early educational reforms,” said Mary John O’Hair, dean of the College of Education. “Kentucky was chosen because of all the exciting things happening here, and the collaborative work See Lab on page 4

Athletics plan achievable, realistic goal for university
Setting goals seems to have become a trend at UK since President Lee Todd instilled his top-20 plan. UK athletics has followed suit with the implementation of its 15 by 15 by 15 plan. The plan was implemented two years ago by UK Athletic Director Mitch Barnhart. The plan’s mission is to see UK athletics win 15 conference and national championships, as well as rank in the top 15 of the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup rankings, all by the year 2015. When the plan was put in place, it allowed UK athletics seven years to achieve the goal. In just two years UK has brought home four championships, thanks to the UK rifle team and the UK men’s basketball team, putting UK at the needed pace to achieve 15 championships by 2015. While that aspect of the goal shows promise, the bar is set relatively high with regards to reaching a ranking in the top 15. UK athletics has never been ranked higher than
A burning question for Sandra How could the actress not have known husband Jesse James was a cheater? Us uncovers the truth By Mara Reinstein Her name is Merilee Gerth. She used to work at Jesse James' West Coast Choppers shop in Long Beach, California, was once a topless dancer and, on April 12, became the fifth woman in a month claiming to have slept with Sandra Bullock's husband. For the Oscarwinning actress, 45, the news was just more humiliating evidence that James, 41, is not the faithful family man whom she praised throughout the recent awards circuit not to mention the five years of her marriage. "She now believes she truly had been living with a monster," a source close to the actress tells Us. "He's a serial liar and a deadbeat. She was living under his spell and is now uncovering all the lies that he told her, questioning everything." Us has the latest details on the scandal.
How did Jesse fool her? "He became a whole different person when they

were together," a former West Coast Choppers staffer tells Us. "He could really separate the cheating self from his married self." Not surprisingly, the indemand movie star and the bluecollar bikeshop owner (and reality TV vet) also spent much time apart. "They had separate lives," one pal says. "Whenever I saw her at a showbiz event without him, Sandra would say that it wasn't Jesse's kind of thing." Not that she was hurt about it: "She would glow just at the mention of Jesse's name." With that kind of unwavering love and trust, sources say she was completely unsuspecting of his clandestine affairs. "She was really duped," a Bullock pal says. "She knew she was marrying a bad boy but thought she had reformed him into a wonderful man. She didn't know he had a double life." In fact, exstaffers at James' bike shop tell Us that even though their boss' infidelity was an open secret (he even bedded one mistress in his office), Bullock was in the dark.

15th by the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup. However, Barnhart’s plan shows an initiative to not become complacent with past finishes. By aiming to achieve a higher level of success, he has set a standard to which each of the individual programs within UK athletics can strive to achieve. In an April 11 Kernel article, Barnhart acknowledge the strides made by the programs so far. “… it means our coaches and athletes have really done some special things so far this year,” Barnhart said. Striving for improvement should always be applauded, especially through the means of implementing reachable goals. Whether or not the top-20 plan is reachable remains to be seen, although, many would argue its intention is admirable. On the other hand, strides have already been made toward the 15 by 15 by 15 plan and have already proven it to be a realistic goal.
Cats look to continue success with 2010 signees By Chandler Howard firstname.lastname@example.org
While some Cats fans remain fixated on the recent signing of basketball star Brandon Knight, the softball program is focusing on its own 2010 class. UK head coach Rachel Lawson has notched seven letters of intent for next season, including two Kentucky natives. “The recruiting class is going to be very strong and have a lot of potential,” Lawson said. “But we are having to replace such a great senior class from this year. We are hoping they can come in and fill the spots up the middle that we are losing. Any time you lose so many positions in one part of the field, it is going to be a bit of a rebuilding process.” The 2010 freshman class is going to be required to fill spots held by notable athletes. Shortstop Molly Johnson, second baseman Natalie Smith, pitcher Amber Matousek, and outfielders Destinee Mordecai and Jennifer Young make up the list of graduating seniors. The incoming group includes two pitchers: Lauren Cumbess, of Normal, Ill., and Ellen Weaver, of Salem, Va. The duo will enter into the rotation with a UK pitching
squad that ranks near their experience at the top in the SouthUK. eastern Conference. “The biggest “The pitchers are change I learned is in going to have to fall the pace of the game,” in line with Chanda UK junior centerfield(Bell) and Rachel (Rier Meagan Aull said.

Sports While the UK football team has had recent onfield success, it is not believed star UK players, such as Trevard Lindley, pictured, will be drafted any earlier than the second round. PHOTO BY ADAM WOLFFBRANDT STAFF
Draft a bust around campus Draft, draft, draft. It’s all people are talking about this week (between talks about recruiting, obviously). NBA Draft, NFL Draft, heck, maybe even the MLS Draft (just kidding, that one already happened). But around these parts, specifically on UK’s campus, the buzz has waned significantly. The obvious KENNY reason is the closest NFL COLSTON team is at least an hour Kernel and a half away and no columnist teams reside in this state. The second, and probably less obvious reason, is what was once billed as the best NFL Draft former UK players would have in a long time has been a big bust. There’s at least two guys who were considered first round football talent at some point in their careers. The first, Micah Johnson, had his stock peak about the time he graduated from high school. The second, Trevard Lindley, watched himself slip from his position as the best corner in the Southeastern Conference and a late first round selection to the possibility of a Friday second round selection. From two to zero means little to no interest in ESPN’s primetime first round Thursday night, and slight interest in Friday. Maybe the diehards will watch the final rounds on Saturday, but I wouldn’t count on it. But UK’s first round shutout since Tim Couch was drafted by the Browns in 1999 is a bit perplexing. It’s not like UK players aren’t succeeding in the league. Wesley Woodyard and Keenan Burton are two recent Cats slowly making a name for themselves in
the NFL. About half a dozen more players are on that same level and another half dozen are bouncing around on practice squads and as career backups. With UK players, an NFL team is usually getting a high quality, solid character type of player with a nose-to-the-ground work ethic and usually a little bit of a chip on their shoulders. And it’s not like UK has a bad crop of talent trying to make it into the NFL. In addition to Lindley and Johnson, there’s also John Conner, Corey Peters and Alfonso Smith, among others. The stats may not be as impressive as others and this group didn’t win any conference or national championships, but that doesn’t mean this group doesn’t have talent. It does. But then, as we all know, the NFL Draft isn’t just about talent. It’s about who you played for, how tall a player is, the name recognition and more. If the NFL Draft was perfect, they’d probably replace it with something imperfect, just because. In the meantime, UK players will wait for days to hear their names called and to find out where their NFL careers will begin. UK fans will be more intrigued with the latest basketball commitment or this Saturday’s Blue-White game. The draft will probably be an afterthought, the same way UK players have been to NFL teams. Maybe “Operation Win” will change this notion or maybe it won’t and UK players will still remain late round picks that excel under the radar. Either way, as it stands now, the NFL Draft doesn’t matter in these parts. Kenny Colston is a journalism senior. Email email@example.com.

Greeks look to fight child neglect By Neal Bassett firstname.lastname@example.org
UK Greek Intervarsity is teaming up with an international organization on Wednesday night to create a better future for children. Viva, a non-profit organization, works with local networks to eliminate deprivation, exploitation, abuse and neglect for children, according to its website, www.viva.org. UK Greek Intervarsity first joined with Viva in December 2009 and UK is the first school to have partnered with Viva. UK Greek Intervarsity alumni adviser Anthony Humphress said philanthropy events like Viva are vital to the Greek community on campus. “It is important to Greek students to attend this event because they have a lot of influence on non-profits,” he said. “Whenever we can give back it’s great for the students and children involved.” Humphress said the event on Wednesday is an opportunity for members of Viva and UK Greek Intervarsity members and volunteers to get together and get to know one another. He said the event is a kick-off for a future event in September where they can implement the strategies they develop Wednesday night. Humphress said bringing representatives from the organization to campus is a great opportunity for students to get an idea of what they can do to help. “This event gives Viva a chance to tell us their goals and what they need and allows us to help them achieve that,” he said. The event will feature a video from the International Director explaining how the UK Greek community can help and how they can team up with Viva, as well as a Q&A session. According to Viva’s website, these kinds of events are an effective way of building relationships, practically resourcing and equipping people and developing new ideas and strategies. Viva is also partners with more than 43 Christian networks with 8,000 members to help take care of more than 1 million children. Humphress said a similar event last year had about 400 people in attendance. He said he would like to continue that support this year as well. “It would be great to have a turnout like that, and to have a representative for every house present,” he said. “The best way to get involved is to come to this event.”
ELIZABETH Continued from page 1 Lawless said. “There have been situations where somebody will show up at a gathering and unlock a window so they can return and break in. These are some precautions (students) can take to make sure they are safe.” Students said there is no shortage of police presence in and around Elizabeth Street, but some question whether their main priority is safety or party control. “The police are around but it seems like they’re more around to bust up parties than to make sure everyone is safe. Just making sure everyone is quiet basically,” Ruberg said. UK Police Chief Joe Monroe said it is natural for students to feel like police in the area are only concerned about parties, because they are indeed a point of emphasis. Monroe said UK Police has a joint task force with Lexington Police to help curb drinking and related incidents. “We are changing that whole culture and maybe that’s why students feel like they’re being picked on,” Monroe said. Monroe said he can understand people wanting to get together to have fun, but the police have an obligation to make sure things do not get out of hand. “We are not trying to discourage people from having fun,” Monroe said. “We are trying to make them be responsible.” Because of the increased party patrols, student alcohol related deaths and citations have decreased over the last five years, Monroe said. In regards, to the two abductions, Monroe said investigations into both are ongoing, but such instances could be prevented with the proper precautions. Monroe said the investigations into the abductions are in

While students complain about safety and unfair targeting by police, the permanent residents in the area believe a few bad students are causing the problems the neighborhood faces and are making their peers feel unsafe. “It is unfortunate that the irresponsible behavior of a very small percentage of students give others a black eye,” Lawless said. “Peer pressures for those students they see being disrespectful to the neighborhood to clean up their act would also help a lot.” The safety issue in neighborhoods near campus is not a problem unique to UK.

UK announced its commitment to spend $1.5 million over the next three years to launch the lab. “UK can help younger kids because after doing a survey in our 17 colleges, we found that there are 180 different partnerships with schools around the state,” O’Hair said. “We want to pull those partnerships together to target issues in schools such as motivation, engaging learning, dropout rates and early childhood education.” According to a release by the College of Education, The Partnership for Next Generation Learning is designed to help states move from their current systems
fortunately, neither is the tension between students and residents. Monroe said police can fix the safety issue, but the second problem some say is up to the residents. Solving both may be the solution to solving Elizabeth Street’s ills. “The neighbors would love to get to know the students better and have a good relationship with them.” Lawless said. “It is nice if they can go to the neighbors and introduce themselves and swap phone numbers and let them know that they want to be a part of the neighborhood and if either have problems, the students or the other residents, they call each other.”

O’Hair said UK’s undergraduate and graduate students can play a large role in developing strong early childhood education by leading the way and learning to be engaged in local schools and communities. “University students’ knowledge, excitement and models of learning are some of the best ways to help younger students,” O’Hair said.
