Dining halls updated to ‘stay relevant’ K-Lair gets whole new look, Trattoria renamed By Rachel Aretakis firstname.lastname@example.org
Campus dining got a new look this summer as multiple restaurants underwent renovations. Six dining locations out of the 23 options were updated: KLair, Blazer, Fusion, Ovid’s Café , the Kentucky Clinic Starbucks and Ag North. The major renovations came to K-Lair. “We gave it a whole new look this summer. New flooring, new walls, new artwork,” said
Scott Henry, the executive director of dining services. The 50-year-old building also received new lighting, menu boards, tables, chairs, a logo and a new menu. Henry said not much has been updated over the years. The total cost to renovate was around $40,000, he said. Myrandah Bailey, a biology sophomore who works at K-Lair, said when she walked in, the changes surprised her. She didn’t know it was being renovated and she said the restaurant now looks fancier.
“The menu has changed so much from what it used to be,” Bailey said. She said she thinks students will like it because the food is fresher and the menu has more options. The new menu includes updated salads, fresh vegetables, chicken sandwiches and turkey burgers, Henry said. Bailey also said the staff is able to get food out quicker because the cash registers are now located on the right side. “It’s faster, so we don’t have people waiting so long to get
their food,” she said. Thomas Swartwout, a 2010 UK graduate and intern with Crusade for Christ, was dining at K-Lair and said he liked the changes. “I was amazed because it looks completely different,” he said. Swartwout said he dined at the restaurant a lot as a student, and the first thing he noticed was the new floor. Henry said he hopes students will respond positively. “Part of our goal is to make all dining on campus comfortable and nice,” Henry said. “I See DINING on page 4

More than one mile of bike lanes were added near campus this summer, including on East Maxwell. By Kayla Phelps email@example.com
New bike lanes added around campus in early August have affected both students and local residents. The city government added the lanes on East Maxwell between South Limestone and Rose Street, and on Rose Street between East Maxwell and Rose Lane. The project was jointly funded by the city and UK. Many bikers benefit from the new lanes, but other residents and commuters aren’t thrilled with the changes. “I think it’s ridiculous,” said Ashley Hurst, a resident on East Maxwell. “The roads are too narrow. We can hardly open our doors.” Parking on East Maxwell has moved to the north side of the street and the bike lane occupies the south side, reducing the amount of available parking spots. Parking also has been eliminated on Rose Street between East Maxwell and College View Avenue. Gene Potter, a six-year resident on East Maxwell, said adding the lane and additional sidewalk expansion has caused parking issues for visitors. See LANES on page 2

Campus leader honored at UK memorial By Miles South firstname.lastname@example.org
A memorial service for the recently deceased Joseph T. Burch was held at Worsham Theater on Aug. 17. Burch died April 4 of cancer. He was 72. During the service, stories were shared and those who knew him relived their fondest memories. “It felt like a family reunion,” said Robert Mock, vice president of student affairs. He was an integral part of UK, from his See BURCH on page 2

CYMBALIC GESTURE UK football invaded South Campus Friday, commandeering some of the band's instruments and singing the fight song — but that was only after their work was done. Players helped freshmen move into dorms, transport boxes, pick up mini-refrigerators and — like in the case of 6-foot-11 lineman Jack Gruenschlaeger — got requests to shake trucks for no other reason than being tall. Campus staff and administrators joined, including President Dr. Eli Capilouto, his wife, Dr. Mary Lynne Capilouto, and Student Government President Micah Fielden, along with Lexington community members.

LANES Continued from page 1 “I’m all for a bike lane, but this is not realistic for parking,” he said. Potter doesn’t think adding the bike lane will increase the number of bikers, and said the available parking prior to construction was a necessity. “I hope it makes more people bike, but I don’t think it will,” he said. Shane Tedder, sustainability coordinator for UK, said more than one mile of bike lanes were added this summer, and they all connected to existing lanes. Tedder has been working with Lance Broeking, direc-
tor of Parking and Transportation Services, on bike initiatives around campus. Stephen Shepard, a geography senior and East Maxwell resident, said losing parking was a fair tradeoff to ensure biker safety. “I think that the bike lanes were very necessary,” he said. “They were a great remedy.” Wes Meeks, a former UK student, said riding on East Maxwell without a bike lane was risky. “I’ve been riding on this road for years and it was one of the scariest,” he said. The project was an effort between the neighborhood, the city and UK to increase bike facilities around campus, said Kenzie Gleason, bi-
cycle and pedestrian coordinator for the city government. “There was a need for better bike connectivity,” she said. Gleason said UK has expressed more interest in bike facilities around campus and more projects are underway. “We are seeing more happening, more quickly,” Gleason said. “UK and agencies are on board and ready to move forward.” Tedder and Broeking are among those who are optimistic about the bike initiatives taking place. “We are moving in the right direction,” Broeking said. “Pedaling,” Tedder added.

MTV’s ‘Awkward’ an honest look As portrayed on TV, teenage girls — from the cocktail-swilling sophisticates of “Gossip Girl” to the divas-in-training of “Glee” — often seem older than their years. What happened to coming-of-age stories such as “My So-Called Life” and “Freaks and Geeks” that captured teens in the awkward limbo between child and adult? MTV steps into that gap with the aptly named “Awkward,” the sometimes painfully funny story of 15-year-old Jenna Hamilton, who is struggling to get through high school (and attract the attention of a special boy) without dying of embarrassment. Here’s the setup: Jenna, played by Ashley Rickards, thought of herself as invisible, especially after an intimate encounter with jock Matty (Beau Mirchoff) at camp. “Nobody can know that I like you,” he told her afterward. Then Jenna got an anonymous letter telling her “you could disappear and no one would notice.” Sometimes, she wrote in her blog, “being a teenager makes you want to die.” The ensuing chain of events, including a fall, a hospital stay and a comically ridiculous shoulder cast, managed to get Jenna noticed for the first time, because everyone (including her parents and counselor) thought she attempted suicide. As a result, she has resolved to stop fading into the background and, instead of “Invisible Girl,” she has christened herself “That Girl.” “Awkward” debuted last month to positive reviews, and critics meeting in Los Angeles were delighted when MTV rounded up the cast and creator Lauren Iungerich for a Q&A session. Jenna was born from “my awkward, em-

Rickards, best known as Sam on “One Tree Hill” in the 2008-09 season, fell for “Awkward” because “the writing was so unique and so realistic, (and) none of these characters can be stereotyped.” Matty, the boy Jenna loves, “is much more than just the jock,” she says. (There’s another boy, too: Jake, played by Brett Davern, who would be perfect if he didn’t already have a cheerleader girlfriend.) “My mom is much more than just the mom. All of them have incredible depth.” Characters will continue to surprise in the course of the season, Rickards says. “We are going to see Matty go to lengths that we didn’t think he could go to, good or bad,” she says. “(Jenna will) go to lengths that test the boundaries of friendship, of relationships.” Like other characters, mean-girl Sadie (played by Nikki DeLoach) isn’t the typical TV mean girl, and the facade surrounding her plus-size popularity dissolves in a future episode. Even the boys are portrayed with rare nuance. But the heart of “Awkward” is Jenna, and the message is her message. “The empowerment of this show is that she finds and defines herself for herself,” Iungerich says.

New president goes viral Capilouto uses social media, blog to make online connection By Rachel Aretakis email@example.com
In less than a month, President Dr. Eli Capilouto has expanded his accessibility by entering the world of social media. With 1,277 Twitter followers and 729 Facebook “likes” (as of Tuesday evening), Capilouto has blogged and tweeted in an effort to engage with the UK community. Capilouto created his Twitter account and Facebook fan page on Aug. 2, and con-
tinues to post to his blog, which was launched in June. In an Aug. 2 blog post, called “The Changing Nature of Communication,” Capilouto asked for students, faculty and staff participation and feedback. “I am making myself open and expanding our dialogue through social media,” Capilouto said on the blog, “which can be similarly effective to my meetings across campus but with broader access and increased frequence in idea sharing.”

App informs users before they go out Bar patrons can gauge a venue’s atmosphere using smartphones By Evan S. Benn MCT
ST. LOUIS — When Cole Harper was home in St. Louis on breaks from the University of Missouri-Columbia, he and his buddies discovered the barhopper’s Goldilocks paradox: The places they stopped in were often too empty or too crowded, but none seemed just right. “I kept thinking, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to know what the scene was like before paying $20 for a cab?’” Harper, 27, said. “Are there people there? Girls? Is it a young crowd or more mature?” To help answer those questions, Harper and friend Marc Doering founded SceneTap. The free mobile application uses cameras loaded with facialdetection technology to feed users’ phones real-time data about the number of people in a bar, their average age and the male-to-female ratio. SceneTap launched last month in Chicago, and so far about 75 venues there have paid to be included in the app. Harper, the company’s CEO, said he was planning to bring the technology to his hometown this fall. He has been fielding requests from bar owners from California to Israel. “We’ve gotten interest from people in every continent except Antarctica,”
Harper said of his 50-person company. “We’re just closing out a second round of financing, and our focus right now is on national expansion. Our goal is to be in 1,000 venues a year from now.” SceneTap could benefit locals and tourists in St. Louis, said Emily Cloud, who writes about downtown nightlife on her blog, washavestl.com.
I kept thinking, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice to know what the scene was like before paying $20 for a cab?’” COLE HARPER SceneTap CEO
“I think people would love it, consumers in particular, especially on Washington Avenue. You get a lot of tourists because they’ve heard of the area or they’re down at a convention, but they’re always asking where to go,” said Cloud, a former bartender at downtown’s the Side Bar. “I cannot tell you the countless amount of times
when I would be working at the Side Bar, and guys would walk in and be like, ‘Where are the girls?’ I would also see a lot of people walk in or out depending on the crowd and if it was busy or not.” Here’s how SceneTap works: A small camera positioned at a bar’s entrance keeps track of the number of people coming and going, and a second camera scans faces to determine gender and approximate age. (An algorithm matches the bar patrons’ facial characteristics to an anonymous database to come up with ages and genders.) The data — updated every five minutes — are posted on SceneTap’s website and its smartphone app. For example, a user could see that Bar X is 80 percent full, the ratio of guys to girls is about even, and the average age of men in the bar is 23 while the women average 31 years old. The location-based app also runs Groupon-like specials and allows users to share what they’re doing through social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. “We created a one-stop shop that works a little like Foursquare, a little like Groupon, a little like Facebook,” Harper said. “We feel like we’ve taken the best aspects of those sites and added this unique data that helps you figure out where you want to go.”

K Week organizers tout high student participation Events combine community service, introduction to campus life By MIles South firstname.lastname@example.org
K Week kicked off the fall semester with strong participation in the many events and activities, coordinators said. The weeklong program aims to welcome new students into the UK family and incorporates a wide variety of events, activities and meetings designed to introduce new students to the UK way of life. The program also attempts to include the parents of new students so they can become familiarized with UK. The New Student Induction Ceremony on Saturday was one of the first and most important events during K Week. Students and their families were encouraged to join President Dr. Eli Capilouto in Memorial Coliseum to be officially inducted into the university community. Several K Week events involve performing service
for the community. UK FUSION is an organization that provides students with opportunities to volunteer around Lexington. On Monday, UK FUSION hosted various community service projects to engage new students. Emily Greene, a biology freshman, participated in one of the FUSION projects with her sorority, Pi Beta Phi. They painted a fence at a local horse farm. “I had a lot of fun doing the project and there were free snow cones and T-shirts for everyone that participated,” Greene said. Many of the K Week events are sponsored by various organizations involved with UK. The Christian Student Fellowship hosted a late-night luau Friday. They roasted a pig and provided students with food and drinks. Jordyn Ethington, a secondary education freshman, attended the luau and said she had fun.
“There was lots of free food and tons of people dancing,” Ethington said. Cameron Hamilton, a K Crew Coordinator, was optimistic about the turnout this year. “This has been the best K Week I have ever seen. Participation is through the roof,” he said. Hamilton attributed the rise in participation to an increase in enthusiasm by both new students and upperclassmen involved with K Week. He said one of the most popular events of this year’s K Week was a new event called the T-shirt swap. Students were encouraged to bring old high school Tshirts and swap them at no charge for brand new UK shirts. The high school Tshirts were then donated to charity organizations. K Week ends Saturday, Aug. 27. For a full schedule of upcoming events, visit www.uky.edu/StudentAffairs/KWeek/index.ht ml and see page 12.
$14.5 million award to foster energy efficiency research By Rachel Aretakis email@example.com
The UK Research Foundation was awarded more than $14.5 million for a program that will create ways to improve efficiency and reduce costs of advanced carbon capture systems. Four awards were given out by the U.S. Department of Energy, and UK was the only university chosen to receive one, said Rodney Andrews, the director of UK’s Center for Applied Energy Research. The UK award totals $14,502,144. The research is focusing on systems used at coal-fired power plants, with the goal being to “develop CO2 capture and separation technologies that can achieve at least 90 percent CO2 removal at no more than a 35 percent increase in the cost of electricity,” according to the federal news release. Andrews said this means there would be about a 50 percent reduction over the costs of
doing carbon capture. “We’re looking at how do you take this process and how to consume less energy to make it more efficient and cheaper,” Andrews said. The Center’s Power Generation and Utility Fuels group will lead the project, “Application of a Heat Integrated Post-Combustion CO2 Capture System with Hitachi Advanced Solvent into Existing Coal-Fired Power Plant.” It will take place at LG&E/KU’s Brown Power Plant. “It is an important topic for our state. We are very dependent on coal for electricity and we need to have options of how we deal with any sort of regulation for carbon dioxide,” Andrews said. He said he is excited about the award. “It is a big deal for us, for the university, for the state in terms of the investment the state made,” Andrews said.

DINING Continued from page 1 thought K-Lair was long overdue for an update.” On the other side of campus, smaller updates occurred. Trattoria, on the second floor of Erikson Hall, was renamed Fusion, and now has a new menu, floor and cabinetry. Henry said before the menu was mostly Mediterranean food with some Thai food. “We hope to incorporate more foods from around Europe, with more of an international flair,” he said. Other dining changes were made to Ovid’s Café, which was painted and
equipped with a new Coca-Cola fountain and Mexican fiesta bar. The private dining room in Blazer on North Campus received new floors, tables and chairs. Ag North got a new menu and logo, and the Kentucky Clinic Starbucks got new soft seating, a new bar area and a coffee wall. The three convenience stores on campus were renamed to Quick Stop @Blazer, @Commons and @Student Center. Lastly, Panda Express is now open on Sunday and offers later weekday hours, Henry said. He said the restaurant continues to do well and he thinks the popularity will continue. “Every summer we try to keep things fresh,” Henry said. “I just want to create the best atmosphere for students to enjoy. I want to stay relevant.”

Defensive line seeks to create more pressure Lessons from former UK players now in the pros By Aaron Smith email@example.com
The longer NFL players were locked out over the summer, the more UK players benefited. With NFL facilities inaccessible to former UK players now in the pros, some, including former defensive linemen Jeremy Jarmon and Corey Peters, returned to the UK campus. â€œThe NFL lockout was a blessing for us,â€? junior defensive end Collins Ukwu said. Jarmon, worked out at UK most of the summer, lifting weights and going through defensive line drills with the UK group. He brought along his reservoir of NFL knowledge to share. He told Ukwu to increase his film study to three or four times a week,
focusing on missed opportunities from last yearâ€™s games that Ukwu could capitalize on this time around. And he taught him a new swim move, in which Ukwu dips his arm under the offensive linemen and locks it. â€œItâ€™s something you donâ€™t want to practice against your teammates,â€? Ukwu said. â€œBecause you might hurt them. Itâ€™s the type of move you have to think about before you do it because itâ€™s so hard.â€? If the former Cats helped the line get ready to spearhead the new, aggressive defense that focuses on creating negative plays, it certainly will be. Last season, UK was tied for second-to-last in the SEC in sacks created. Rising in the rankings would be indicative of the new scheme.
The line has many names that are familiar â€” Ukwu, Taylor Wyndham, Donte Rumph, Mister Cobble, Luke McDermott â€“ but sometimes havenâ€™t become common names in games, due to a variety of reasons. While UK expects all of them contributing â€” along with a few linebackers who could see spot time with their hand on the ground â€” head coach Joker Phillips is still unsure about another lineman, Mark Crawford.
Crawford was suspended the last two games of last season for a violation of team rules and was charged with driving with a suspended license in February. â€œWe expect him to do what he's supposed to do all the time,â€? Phillips said. â€œHe has done that for the most part, but he's still working his way to be a part of this football team. Itâ€™s day to day.â€? The others provide enough depth to be productive if Crawford has to miss
extensive time. â€œWe've got some defensive linemen that have not played a lot around here,â€? said Phillips, pointing out Cobble and Rumph as two players â€œthat now should be in the mix.â€? Cobble has been out of the mix too long for his liking. He redshirted in 2009 and was forced to sit out all but the bowl game due to academic eligibility issues in 2010. â€œI was chasing females instead of grades,â€? Cobble said. Cobble said he got the
females. He also got Scout Team Player of the Week last season once. Itâ€™s an honor he doesnâ€™t particularly want. It only signifies lost time. With an opportunity to be part of the new-look defense, he doesnâ€™t want to miss this one. â€œFootball flies by fast, and sooner or later Iâ€™m going to be sitting in the front row with the fans,â€? Cobble said. â€œAnd Iâ€™m going to be looking back. I donâ€™t want to be one of those guys who looks back and thinks they could have done more.â€?
defensive line key departure: Ricky Lumpkin The graduated defensive tackle was a consistent player in the middle who will need to be replaced.
x-factor: Taylor Wyndham The junior defensive end is known for one play, his concussion-inducing sack of Tim Tebow. He doesnâ€™t like it, and he wants to get people thinking about him for more than just that hit.
top newcomer: Shaquille Love If only because he and Mister Cobble create a tandem of good names.

All in a line: 5 returnees anchor offense Experienced, talented group provide stabilization By Ethan Levine firstname.lastname@example.org
Amid the overhaul of talent at the skill positions on UK’s offense, one area that has stayed constant for head coach Joker Phillips and his offense is the offensive line. The Cats return four starters from last year’s team: left tackle Chandler Burden, left guard Stuart Hines, center Matt Smith and right guard Larry Warford. Burden, Hines and Smith will all be entering their senior seasons at UK while Warford will be a junior in 2011.
“We know as an offensive line that we are going to have to be the leaders on the team,” Hines said. “For our offense to run smoothly, it’s going to be up to us because we have a lot of inexperience behind us, but we have a lot of talent and a lot of guys who can do great things as long as we take care of our job up front.” The only newcomer to the guys up front this season will be right tackle Billy Joe Murphy, who succeeds former UK offensive tackle Brad Durham. Murphy, a senior, has started nine games through the first three years of his UK career, providing
him with the experience needed to fit in with this veteran group on the line. The stars of this group can be found at the guard position in both Hines and Warford. Warford received second-team all-Southeastern Conference honors after last season, and this summer was named to a first-team preseason all-SEC offensive lineman. Hines, who received third-team all-SEC honors following his sophomore season in 2009, has been regarded by many, including Phillips, as the veteran leader of the offensive line. “Stuart Hines has been the leader up front along
with the other seniors, Jake Lanefski and Billy Joe Murphy,” Phillips said. “Larry Warford is a guy that will be one of the best that's ever played here before he finishes. So we feel really good about how far those guys have come. (Offensive line) Coach (Mike) Summers does an unbelievable job of making sure that those guys are together.” “It’s really an honor to our whole O-line because I wouldn’t be as good as I was this past year without the guys next to me,” Warford added. “I’ll say that and I’ll defend that. Those guys help me out so much and me be-

key departure: Brad Durham Durham is the only starter from last year's starting offensive line not to return to UK this season.
x-factor: Larry Warford An all-SEC performer at guard, Warford has been referred to by head coach Joker Phillips as "one of the best that's ever played here."
top newcomer: Teven Eatmon After redshirting in 2010, the former high school tight end from Ohio has the athletic ability to catch passes and the size to compete with SEC defenders in the trenches ing named to those teams is just a testament to how great we are and how good of a group we are.” One area of concern for this line will be depth. In contrast to the wealth of experience in the starting lineup, the reserves on the line will need to continue to progress and improve if they want to be ready to play in 2011. So far this summer, the offensive line has remained relatively healthy. Hines suffered a minor knee injury in early August, but the injury will not cause Hines to miss the team’s season opener against Western Kentucky on Sept. 1. Whether it be filling in for an injured player or preparing to take over the line beginning next year after the seniors have left, Phillips and Summers have made building depth on the line a priority. “As those guys start each new segment of the season, spring ball and fall camp, and the offseason program, they all gain more and more experience about how to prepare,” Summers said. They all understand more about what the
scheme is, and certainly when our four seniors walk out of here at the end of the season then those guys are going to now have to step up, so there’s a lot of responsibility there.” But for the team Phillips plans to put on the field this season, the offensive line seems to be the key to success on offense. As new UK quarterback Morgan Newton continues to learn the offense and build timing with the new faces at the skill positions around him, it will likely be up to the line to keep defenders at bay and allow the offense to find a rhythm and move the football down the field. “We've been saying for a couple years that the strength of this football team offensively will be our offensive line, and well, I'm now happy and proud to say that they should be the strength of the program on offense,” Phillips said. “We've got four out of the five back, working really, really good together, communicate. They did a lot of things this summer on their own and getting themselves prepared.”

Miller plays efficiently for 5th-place US team Averages 5.6 points, 3.6 rebounds in 8 games By Aaron Smith email@example.com
Darius Miller, a senior guard for UK was a high-efficiency but low-volume producer for the U.S. team that earned fifth place in the World University Games. • Miller started five of the eight games, averaging 18.4 minutes per game (fifth-most on the team). • He averaged 5.6 points per game (third-lowest) and 3.6 rebounds per game (sixthhighest). • He shot 47.1 percent from the field, including 45.5 percent on 3-pointers. • He finished with six assists and 12 turnovers. • In the eight games, he had a low scoring total of one point and a high of nine points. Vanderbilt’s John Jenkins finished the competition averaging a team-leading 13.5 points per game in 20 minutes per game. Alabama’s JaMychal Green finished averaging 12.6 points and 5.9
rebounds per game. Full stats for all players are posted below. The World University Games was a 24-country event played in Shenzhen, China, from Aug. 13 to Aug. 22. The U.S. team finished with a 7-1 record in group and knockout play combined. His lone loss was in the quarterfinals, a one-point loss to Lithuania. It was the first year the U.S. did not medal in the Games since it began in 1965. How much Miller benefits from the experience is hard to determine, but anyone associated with international competitions invariably says it’s a beneficial experience. Incoming freshman point guard Marquis Teague, who played for the 2010 U-17 team that won a gold medal, said late-round games bring a different kind of pressure. The U.S., as the prohibitive favorite, faced the pressure of being expected to win every game — where Miller and UK will often find themselves. In this case, the U.S. team did not fully succeed. Teague’s coach in that
tournament, Don Showalter, said it helps players with their abilities to form a cohesive team with players they just met. Players on international teams have a limited time frame to learn an offense, adjust to teammates and prove themselves worthy of playing time. Miller had 10 days of training sessions with his teammates before they jetted off to China. At UK, he will have to assimilate himself with both new freshmen and the new versions of forward Terrence Jones and guard Doron Lamb. Heading into the competition, Miller wanted to pick up some moves from the other players on the U.S. team and gather feedback from the coaching staff — which includes the head coaches from Purdue, Tennessee and Butler — on how he can improve. He got to go up against a different variety of players than he would have had he continued playing pickup games at UK. Now, Miller is back in Kentucky, ready to begin his senior season.

Men’s soccer returns three key players All have earned conference honors at UK By Ryan Brown firstname.lastname@example.org
UK head coach Ian Collins is back for his fifteenth year as head of the program and is hoping to add to his 168 career victories. He is surrounded with a few familiar faces that may help him add to his total. Junior Matt Lodge, UK’s leading goal scorer for his first two years, is coming back this season. He has 10 goals and five assists in his UK career. Last year he was named All-Conference USA and was the first UK soccer player named to the Freshman All-American team since 2009.
Next Game Who: Kentucky vs Dayton When: Friday at 7:30 p.m. Where: UK Soccer Complex
UK also returns freshman All-American Dylan Asher, who should play a pivotal role in the backlines’ success this season. He led the team by playing 1,767 minutes out of the 1,813 total minutes a year ago in earning secondteam All-Conference honors. Also returning is goal-
keeper Tyler Beadle, a redshirt sophomore who has earned freshman All-Conference and All-Conference honors in C-USA. Beadle had a goals-against average of 1.30 last year. Last year, with a tough out-of-conference schedule, UK's overall record was 7-84. The team took third in CUSA with a 4-2-2 record, totaling fourteen points, one point behind second-place University of Central Florida and seven points behind first-place Southern Methodist University. Both teams are ranked in most preseason polls and should be a good test for the Cats this season.
Mitchell, Calipari express sympathy over Summitt UT coach diagnosed with early onset dementia By Ethan Levine email@example.com
University of Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt has been diagnosed with dementia, it was announced Monday night. The official diagnosis was early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s Summitt type, according to Go Vols Xtra. UK women’s basketball head coach Matthew Mitchell began his coaching career as a graduate assistant on the 1999-2000 Vols squad, which finished 33-4. Mitchell expressed his appreciation of the role Summitt played in the early stages of his career, as well as his admiration of Summitt as both a coach and as a woman. “My thoughts and prayers are with Coach Summitt and her family,”
Mitchell said in a UK Athletics release. “She’s done so much for me personally and I wouldn’t be where I am professionally without the contributions she has made in my life. She has been such an incredible example to me and she is someone I care for tremendously. It took a great amount of courage to address this issue but it doesn’t surprise me. She’s always been a very courageous woman. My family is praying for Coach Summitt and Tyler. I also know Mickie (DeMoss) and Holly (Warlick) along with the entire Te n n e s s e e will be there for Coach Summitt during this difficult time.” U K men’s basMitchell ketball coach John Calipari also shared his high regards for Summitt through a comment Tuesday in which
he praised Summitt as a coach and promoter of women’s basketball. He said that Summitt Calipari will be in his prayers as she battles this disease. “Pat Summitt transcends her sport,” Calipari said in the release. “She is more than just a coach; she is a leader in her field. Pat Summitt was one of the original promoters of women’s sports and no one has done more for her sport or for women in general than she has. She will be in my daily prayers and I urge all of the Big Blue Nation to keep her in their thoughts and prayers.” Summitt has coached 38 seasons as Tennessee’s head coach, winning eight national titles during that time. Her 1,071 victories make her the winningest college basketball coach of all-time.
Women’s soccer prevails in home opener over EKU By David Schuh firstname.lastname@example.org
The UK women’s soccer team fought to a 2-1 victory over Eastern Kentucky University in its first home game of the season Tuesday at the UK Soccer Complex. The Cats came out sluggish for the first 60 minutes of the game, trailing 1-0 after a 52ndminute goal by EKU’s Sydney Montgomery from 35 yards out. But an accelerated offensive pace put the Colonels on their heels. An 80th-minute penalty in the box by EKU led to
a successful penalty kick by UK’s Kelsey Hunyadi that tied the game. The Cats didn’t stop there. With just two minutes remaining, Arin Gilliland connected from 15 yards out to send UK to a 2-1 victory. Just a freshman, it was Gilliland’s first career goal in her second game. “We knew we had all the momentum after the first goal,” Gilliland said. “I saw the opening up the right side of the box and Stuart (Pope) gave me a great pass. Luckily, I finished and we pulled this one out.”

Volleyball set for a successful 2011 campaign UK will host the Sweet 16, and Cats want to make it that far By Sam Rothbauer email@example.com
Between two preseason All-SEC players, a top-30 recruiting class and yet another trip to the NCAA Tournament, the UK volleyball team plans to exceed its performance last season. The Cats ultimately plan to win the SEC Championship and make it to the Sweet 16. Along with performing well on the court, they strive to achieve in the classroom as well. “Of course we’re always competing for the SEC Championship,” senior Becky Pavan said. “It’s something that we aspire to every single year, and it’s really important for us to be competing to win the SEC.” UK sees a lot of potential in its freshman recruits. The Cats’ new additions include libero Jackie Napper, middle blocker Kayla Tronick and outside hitter Lauren O’Conner. “It’s been a really smooth transition and they’re great people (with) great work ethic and fully committed to the program,” head coach Craig Skinner said. “(They’ve) bought in already and they’re making a difference.” Freshmen not only have to fit into the team talentwise, but also fit into the team chemistry, and the incoming group seems to have both of those qualities. “They bring a lot of excitement to our team and a lot of energy and I think that with them in our program it’s going to take us another step forward,” junior Stephanie Klefot said.
Next Game Who: Kentucky vs Albany When: Friday at 11 a.m. Where: Tallahassee, Fla.
The players are confident that their goals are within reach for this season and plan to achieve each of them. Since the Cats are hosting the Sweet 16 this year, one of their goals is to make it that far so they can have the chance to play in a big tournament and be supported by the Big Blue Nation. “We obviously want to be there playing in front of our home crowd,” Pavan said. “It would be a very unique experience to be able to play in the Sweet 16 at home in front of all of our fans.” Perhaps most importantly, the Cats set goals in the classroom just like any other team. “One of our goals is to always do well in the classroom,” Pavan said. “We’re primarily students, and we want to be above a 3.3 GPA as a team.” UK volleyball intends on exciting fans this season. With upperclassmen leaders, quick-learning newcomers, all-around talent throughout the roster, a coach with a history of success and an exceptional sense of unity, they may have all the components that make a successful team.
Freshmen battle way up UK’s depth chart By Ethan Levine firstname.lastname@example.org
As position battles continue on both sides of the ball, UK head coach Joker Phillips and the rest of his coaching staff are becoming more confident in the depth of their squad. Phillips said his new crop of freshmen have impressed him in practice and have begun making their way up the depth chart, adding to a team that lost many of its most explosive playmakers from a year ago. “As a group, this is a very talented group,” Phillips said. “There’s no doubt about that.” On offense, Phillips said most of the freshmen seeing time this summer are the ones playing at the same skill positions those playmakers inhabited in 2010. “A couple of wide receivers have made their way onto the two-deep, a couple of the skill guys on defense also. It’s just hard for guys up front. Most of the guys who made their way onto the two-deep are skill guys,” Phillips said. We have to count on one offensive lineman, maybe one defensive lineman to give us some help as far as depth. But whether they be the two or the three is yet to be seen.” Defensively, coaches and veteran players have been impressed with how quickly the freshmen have adjusted to the speed of the SEC and have picked up co-defensive coordinator Rick Minter’s new defensive system. “When it comes to learning the defense, of course the older guys catch on a little bit faster,” senior linebacker Ronnie Sneed said. “Some of the young guys, it takes a little longer to come along because they haven’t been
learning it as long as we have. But they’re catching on and coming along and we’re all excited.” At tight end, Phillips said Jordan Aumiller has established himself atop the depth chart, as one of the most consistent workers on the team. Behind him, Phillips said competition at the position has fueled a battle for a spot on the second team. Competition at the running back position has also heated up like the humid August air. Raymond Sanders still looks to be the starter week one, but a number of other backs, including freshmen continue to compete for a chance to rotate in and see the field on Saturdays. “We have a solid group at running back,” Phillips said. “There is a lot of depth there. Raymond Sanders has done a really good job, but after him one of the freshmen is in the mix along with some of the older guys. CoShik Williams has been as solid as we have had around here and is a guy that practices at a different speed than everybody else. He has a chance to help us here also.” So how confident is the UK football team about the depth on its roster? “I’m pretty confident, man. From the ones down to the fours, everybody can play and everybody is thirsty,” Sneed said. “I think all of our freshmen guys that came in have been doing really well at learning the plays and just learning technique-wise,” said senior defensive back Randall Burden. “And I’m pretty sure any freshmen that they decide to let play they will make a name for themselves.”

Tricky trial biker draws in freshmen
World Champion from Austria jumps over, awes students By Kayla Phelps firstname.lastname@example.org
An international biker pedaled his way across campus Saturday, capturing the attention of many incoming freshmen during their first few days at UK. Thomas Oehler, a 28year-old Austrian trial bike rider, made a pit stop at UK during his five-week national tour, sponsored by Red Bull. Oehler participates in trial riding, in which the rider attempts to keep his or her feet from touching the ground while riding through an obstacle course. Spectators gathered around South Campus as Oehler performed numerous tricks for onlookers. RJ Ross, an English
freshman, said he was impressed by Oehler’s versatile performance. “It’s awesome seeing him out across campus improvising and doing different things,” Ross said. Though the tour began just a few days prior to his visit, Oehler said he is always thinking about what to do next. “I sit in the car and look
around me,” he said. “I am constantly planning things. It never stops,” Oehler said he thrives off of his audience and tries to draw a large crowd. “It’s always hard to find the really crowded places, but once you get more and more people involved, they just keep coming,” he said. During his performance, Oehler incorporated students by telling them to lie down side-by-side as he jumped over their bodies. “I got pretty scared. I’ve

never seen anything like that before,” Jordan Barrass, a business freshman, said. Students actively participated and took photos and video of Oehler’s performance. “It kind of gives you a feeling of what the whole campus is about,” said Carl Groathouse, a computer sci-
ence engineering freshman. “You can become involved in events just by being here.” Oehler participates in other styles of riding, including dirt and mountain biking. He began trial riding at age 12 and started competing shortly after. He is a five-time Austrian trial bike champion and won the European Champi-
onship in 2006. In 2008, Oehler was named the World Champion. He currently holds the world record for bike high jump, reaching 2.9 meters. “I like the technical parts — playing around on the bike and doing really tricky lines,” Oehler said. “That’s my thing.”

The Lukewarm Truth: Capilouto is really alter-ego for UK basketball coach LUKE GLASER Kernel columnist
To the passing eye, mildmannered Eli Capilouto bears no remarkable traits. The bespectacled president with his cheesy UK polos and unparalleled knowledge of dental hygienic practices goes quietly about his work, meeting students, budgeting and humbly working towards the Top 20 goal. However, beneath that modest demeanor, that meek physique, lies a man of steel, who now assumes the most important — and most confidential — job of UK’s president. Yes, dear readers. After months of rigorous investigative journalism, a period in which no stone was left unturned, no record went unexamined, your humble journalist-servant is proud to introduce his column by exposing the biggest cover-up in the
history of the University of Kentucky. On dark nights, as the chill of winter settles in amongst the desperate pleas of thousands of UK followers, Eli Capilouto will inconspicuously slip into the bathroom of Maxwell Place and transform into — wait for it — men’s basketball coach John Calipari. Boom. I know, right? Preposterous. There’s no way. For starters, John Calipari has dark, wavy hair and neither former President Lee Todd nor Capilouto have seen hair on that side of their heads since at least 1968. But, look closely, readers, look closely. Last September, Todd turned down a $50,000 bonus. Who in their right mind would do that? Why, a man who makes $3.8 million a year. Easy to turn down $50k when you make half a million every time you smile and tell someone to buy a Ball Home (or even more dough for being the only cool person in a Central Bank
commercial). And ever notice last year how Todd would mysteriously vanish to Rupp Arena every time the Cats played? Cal would go in for halftime, and then Todd would appear at half court to recognize someone while donning his traditional sweater vest? Did you ever see him when the Cats were on the road in March? No, because he was busy transforming into his Crittenden suit and using the mythical Ring of Rupp, passed down since President Herman L. Donovan, to enhance his explosive knowledge of man-to-man defense. It is believed that Capilouto, a licensed dentist, has already begun his exploits as the Caped Calsader. Sources note that Calipari’s teeth were conspicuously whiter in the Dominican Republic exhibition. We can only hope that his heroic deeds will match those of his predecessors. And that, readers, is the Lukewarm Truth. Not exactly hot, but definitely not cold.
California college pushes for sustainable food Officials hope natural food will catch on with students By Tovin Lapan MCT
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — If Tim Galarneau used his consensus-building skills in Washington, D.C., a federal debt ceiling deal would probably have been done weeks ago. The food systems working group coordinator for University of CaliforniaSanta Cruz’s Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems has a history, dating back to his time as a student on the same campus, of getting things done. “Tim has a rare combination of being a visionary and also a mover and shaker,” agroecology center director Patricia Allen said. “He pulls people together in a very effective way.” Galarneau, who has championed several projects to make the UCSC campus and the University of California system in general more sustainable, recently received the 2011 UC Sustainability Champion Award. One of his first achievements at UCSC, once he arrived as a transfer student from Santa Barbara City College in 2002, was to convince students to approve an additional fee that would go toward sustainable food, health and wellness initiatives. Then he convinced them to double it, raising
$250,000 per year. “Money speaks, and the students showed their commitment,” the goateed 32year-old with a blonde ponytail said. “By investing student funds, we were able to leverage much more university money.” Galarneau, who majored in community studies and psychology at UCSC, also immediately got involved with the nascent Students for Organic Solutions. The group led a campaign against Sodexo Marriott Food Services, which provided UCSC’s dining services at the time, because it was resistant to working with students on using locally sourced organic products. At the same time a student group organizing around labor issues raised concerns that the food service workers earned lower wages than other comparable positions on campus and had no access to health care through their jobs. On Valentine’s Day 2003, a coalition of student groups and workers marched on the chancellor’s office and helped convinced the school to bring its dining hall management in-house. That was the first step in what has been an overhaul of the UCSC dining system, which Galarneau later took to all UC campuses. While the protest was successful, Galarneau typi-
cally works behind the scenes to bring together stakeholders to accomplish common goals. “I’d rather work through collaboration than confrontation,” he said. Instead of picketing in Quarry Plaza, Galarneau did a survey of students to show they were interested in food system issues and would spend their own money to support changes on campus. When he later sought to take his programs to all UC campuses he presented the UC Regents with thousands of postcards from UC students and staff who supported the initiative. UCSC dining halls also ditched serving trays, saving 1 million gallons of water a year and reducing waste by 38 percent annually, according to Galarneau. The Real Food Challenge, co-founded by Galarneau in 2008, is a national campaign to convince 1,000 universities and colleges to buy 20 percent of their food from sustainable sources by 2020, which would shift $1 billion to real food within the next decade. Schools in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and South Africa are also getting involved. “UCSC has become the testing lab for sustainable food initiatives, and I think that’s really exciting,” he said.

What to expect from the Kernel Welcome back to campus. The Kernel is in its 40th year as the independent student newspaper at UK, and this edition marks the start to the Kernel’s 119th year. With that tradition behind us, the Kernel is preparing to provide campus with another year’s worth of news told from students’ perspectives. Expect us to investigate the issues you care about. We want to write stories that get you talking (or Facebooking, or tweeting) — we aren’t afraid to ask the hard questions. The Kernel wants to provide enterprising stories, and we have several projects already in the works. We will document President Dr. Eli Capilouto’s first year on campus, go behind-the-scenes of different student organizations and look into issues that affect the UK campus and the greater Lexington community. This year’s Kernel staff is determined, and we had staffers all over the country with internships this past summer. We hope our experiences have prepared us to bring news to campus in creative ways. We strive to be an innovative paper. From photo slideshows and videos, to a recap of the day’s best tweets, we want our content to be up-to-date and something campus wants to read and look at. We spend a lot of time in the Kernel newsroom, which is in the basement of the journalism building, but we want to meet with others on campus and give readers more voice to better serve our audience. Watch for opportunities to meet with Kernel staffers at different places around campus, or better yet, stop by the newsroom. We’d love to meet you. Have a story idea? Contact us. We want to know what you’re thinking. Follow the Kernel on Twitter at @KyKernel and @KyKernelSports, and each of our staffers has a Kernel Twitter name. We are on Facebook, and we have iPhone and Android apps. We will launch an iPad app soon. It’s a new year and a new opportunity for us to tell the stories of this campus. We hope you’ll pick up a copy of the Kernel every day and log onto kykernel.com to see our content. It’s been said that journalists write the first draft of history, and we plan to document that history as it unfolds for the 2011-12 school year.
Kentucky Kernel unites diverse campus EVA MCENRUE Kernel columnist
Three years ago, walking the path from South Campus to White Hall Classroom Building felt like a black hole. It was an inescapable event horizon of intimidation, unfamiliarity and insurmountable academic and social pressure. I glanced at passing students hoping for a familiar face to appear, an encouraging “hello,” anything to calm my nerves and make me feel included. The glory days of high school had ended. Childhood friends no longer lined hallways decorated with lockers, and bells no longer signaled the beginning of class. What I once considered to be teachers were now referred to as professors and the recognizable high school classrooms were replaced with a foreign campus. With a population of almost 20,000 undergraduate students, it is difficult to feel like a part of something at UK. Countless clubs and organizations consistently gather for events and meetings, athletes and artists practice their talents and students with similar interests sta-
tion library tables for discussions. And yet, students, faculty and staff are united daily with a publication specifically aimed for them: the Kentucky Kernel, a student-run publication that features news, events and commentary that are of concern to our campus, community and world. As opinions editor this year, I am thrilled to deliver a platform for student and faculty dialogue covering an array of subjects. This section is the voice of UK’s campus. The thoughts of the strong-willed, the ambivalent, the popular and the meek collected in one place. The opinions section is working to make it easier for thoughts to be heard using new content and media. Along with lettersto-the-editor, cartoons, editorials and columns, the opinions section will include the results to poll questions featured on the Kernel website and photos of student actiities. The opinions section will also feature an interactive twitter feed of student commentary and will publish appropriate student photos depicting campus life and memorable occasions. We come to college and embark on individual journeys. We pursue different careers, goals and relationships. We arrive with
unique morals, thoughts and judgments. Three years ago, I felt that these ideals divided us. But as I begin my senior year, my attitude toward the UK community has transformed. It is the interactions and experiences had at UK that pave our journeys and shape who we become. As we embark on our individual journeys, it is important to maintain a forum of discussion, a means to communicate our thoughts on the issues that mold our current lives and ultimately our future. The Kernel opinions section will be the daily conversation everyone is included in. The stretch from South Campus to White Hall Classroom Building is not filled with strangers, but with your peers. And as we walk this path during our college careers, we must remember that, despite our diverse backgrounds, beliefs and aspirations, we share an exceptional, unbreakable bond with one and other: we are UK. Friend the Kernel on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and check the website to get involved and have your voice heard. Eva McEnrue is a journalism senior. E-mail email@example.com

College proves to be worthwhile investment The 3 million Americans who graduated from high school last spring have had to grapple with a big decision: whether to continue with their educations this fall. In today0s economic climate, a growing number of families are questioning the value of higher education. Will an investment in college pay off? Or will it simply be a high-cost ticket to the ranks of the unemployed? We’ve just completed a study that draws on a variety of data to help answer those questions, and our research suggests that college is not only worth it; it’s probably going to be the best investment a person makes in a lifetime. Even though the cost of tuition, room, board and lost wages is substantial, and even though the job mar-

WE ARE UK
By Michael Greenstone and Adam Looney
‘Tucky Tweets about K Week
ket remains tough even for college graduates, the evidence is unequivocal: those with college degrees, on average, earn far more than those without them. First, we looked at what we call the Class of the Great Recession — those young adults who graduated from college during the last three years. The results surprised us. We’ve all seen the headlines about how difficult it is for new graduates to find work in these tough economic times. But almost 90 percent of these young college graduates were employed in 2010, compared with only 64 percent of their peers who did not attend college but went straight on to look for work. Even more astounding, the college graduates are making, on average, almost double the annual earnings of those with only a high school diploma. And this advantage is likely to stick with
them over a lifetime of work. For example, at age 50 a college graduate earns about $46,500 more per year than the average person with only a high school diploma. A second way we assessed the value of higher education was to compare the rate of return for the investment in a college degree against other possible investment vehicles. By any measure, a college degree is a big investment that requires a lot of upfront time and money. When you add up the costs of tuition, books and fees, as well as the loss of earnings from going to school rather than working, the average cost of a four-year degree is about $102,000. Of course, this is an average; some schools cost far more, while others cost less. Let’s assume that you’re a high school graduate and you have $102,000 to invest in your future. Is college
your best bet? Or would you be better off putting the money into an alternative investment, like stocks or bonds, and earning the salary of a typical high school graduate over your lifetime? By any financial measure, the investment in a college degree is the winning choice, with a rate of return of a whopping 15.2 percent a year on the $102,000 investment for those who earn the average salary for college graduates. This is more than double the average rate of return in the stock market during the last 60 years (6.8 percent). This high rate of return translates into large differences in earnings. Over a lifetime, the average college graduate earns roughly $570,000 more than the average person with only a high school diploma. In addition, statistics show that college graduates on average live longer lives than high
school graduates and tend to have higher job satisfaction. Some high school students may be reluctant to choose the college path because they believe their experiences will be different and these benefits won’t apply to them. But economic research concludes that many more students would gain from college than currently opt to attend. We live in difficult economic times filled with challenging financial trade-offs. There is no guarantee with regard to any investment, but the evidence on education is clear: The more education you obtain, the better off your job prospects and future earnings.

The day Washington shook: 5.8 earthquake hits capital Pentagon, John F. Kennedy Airport, Martha’s Vineyard also affected MCT
WASHINGTON — A magnitude 5.8 earthquake rattled nerves and jolted buildings in the nation’s capital Tuesday, a rare geological event that was felt up and down the East Coast from Georgia to Massachusetts. The quake’s epicenter was about 83 miles southwest of Washington in Virginia. It struck about 1:51 p.m. EDT, immediately sparking fears of a 9/11-type attack given that the area is not prone to temblors. “This earthquake was the largest in intensity and extent in historic times,” Julie Dutton, a geophysicist at the U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Center in Boulder, Colo., told McClatchy. Washington office buildings and centers of power were quickly evacuated in orderly fashion, but the massive volume of cell phone calls and text messages appeared
to have crashed communications systems. The quake was felt on Martha’s Vineyard, where President Barack Obama was playing golf. Reporters traveling with Obama said they felt it. The White House said late Tuesday that the president did not. In an earlier statement, the White House said that Obama led a conference call an hour after the quake with homeland security officials and science advisers and was told that there were no reports of major infrastructure damage. With memories of Japan’s post-tsunami nuclear problems still fresh, 11 U.S. nuclear plants — in Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Michigan — went on low-alert status, declaring an “unusual event” because they felt the earthquake. This triggers closer review of opera-
tions by plant officials and regulators. Late in the day, the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission issued a statement confirming that a 12th plant, the North Anna Power Station, operated by Dominion Virginia Power and relatively close to the epicenter, was on a higher alert status. The North Anna station declared its alert — the second-lowest of the commission’s four emergency classifications — “when the plant lost electricity from the grid following the quake just before 2 p.m. Tuesday,” the NRC said. “Power is being provided by onsite diesel generators and the plant’s safety systems are operating normally. Plant personnel and NRC resident inspectors are continuing to examine plant conditions.” At New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, the temblor shook water
The biggest scare, however, may have been in the nation’s capital, where the unexpected and unusual quake first felt like a wave followed by violent shaking. bottles and magazines off of shelves and frightened travelers. Some buildings in Manhattan evacuated as a precaution, and several airports along the East Coast were briefly closed to ensure there was no significant runway damage. The biggest scare, however, may have been in the nation’s capital, where the unexpected and unusual quake first felt like a wave followed by violent shaking. Drywall buckled and chipped, making surreal popping sounds. Light fixtures swayed as perplexed workers in office buildings struggled to make sense of why the ground was literally
moving beneath their feet. At a Target store in the capital, merchandise tumbled to the floor and stunned shoppers beat a quick path to the exits. Even the Reston, Va., headquarters of the U.S. Geological Survey, which tracks earthquakes, was evacuated on Tuesday. “It shook pretty significantly,” said Anne-Berry Wade, an agency spokeswoman. The earthquake’s epicenter was closest to the Virginia town of Mineral, home to 430 residents. Mayor Pam Harlowe told McClatchy late Tuesday afternoon that the
town hall was one of a small number of buildings still deemed unsafe. Several walls at the town hall had cracked, and shattered glass littered Mineral’s post office, she said. “We’re a little shook up but other than that everybody’s good,” she said. “Everybody’s safe, so that’s what counts.” The Pentagon, which was attacked on 9/11, was hastily evacuated after the quake, which triggered a water line break that added to the confusion and fear. The National Cathedral suffered damage, too, said spokesman Richard Weinberg. Capstones plunged off three corners of its central tower and there was other exterior damage. August is a time when museums in the capital are chock full of tourists. They were sent scrambling outside, and many museums remained closed for the rest of the afternoon.
