Bombs kill 3 at Boston Marathon Many others critically injured By Amelia Orwick

Two explosions occurred along the route of the Boston Marathon on Monday in what is being treated as an act of terrorism by White House officials. The incidents resulted in 3 casualties and over 130 injuries, the Associated Press reported Monday night. The explosions took place around 2:50 p.m. along Boylston Street near the finish line, 50-100 yards apart, according to Ed Davis, Boston police commissioner. A third explosion occurred at nearby John F.

Kennedy Library more than an hour later. “We are not certain that these incidents are related, but we are treating them as if they are,” Davis said. According to the Boston Athletic Association’s website, 120 Kentuckians were registered for the marathon, including Brian Hancock, an English senior at UK. Hancock finished the marathon about an hour before the incident and witnessed it from his hotel room a few blocks away. “I had heard two loud booms a few seconds apart, and looked out the window See BOSTON on page 3

University wins national award for bicycle initiative

142 posters showcase ideas at Singletary Center By Olivia Jones

UK students, faculty and post-doctorals showcased more than 100 different cancer research projects at the fourth annual Markey Cancer Center Research Day on Monday. Poster presentations circled the lobbies of the Singletary Center with various project topics, including human DNA mismatch repair and electronic cigarette analysis. “We had 142 posters, which is a record number of posters that we’ve had,” said Terry Keys, Markey continuing medical education coordinator. “That’s 10 more than last year.”

Displaying their project on oncology research and caregivers were two undergraduate communication students, Morgyn Robinson and Rachel Sparks. “My part focused on the spirituality of caregivers,” Sparks said. “It was interesting seeing how cancer caregivers would turn to church families for support and prayers, and how much the churches would help them and come together as a community.” Anyone was welcome and could benefit from the event. “It was all pretty basic research (in the presentations) … so there were no difficult theories to exSee MARKEY on page 2

Wheels are turning at UK between Bike Week, a bicycle path stirring up controversy, and the university winning an award for being bicycle friendly. UK was one of nine universities to be recognized as a Bicycle Friendly University by the League of American Bicyclists in their 2012 awards. The school received a bronze designation, making it the first university in the state to receive the award, and one of only 44 colleges that have been awarded nationwide since 2011. The League of American Bicyclists is a non-profit organization founded in 1880 that awards communities, universities and businesses that support bicycling, ac-

cording to the league’s website. The city of Lexington was awarded a bronze designation from the League of American Bicyclists in October 2007. Universities and colleges are judged based on several categories, including education, encouragement, enforcement, evaluation, planning and engineering. The addition of bike lanes, fix-it stations, air stations and bike racks on campus, and offerings of education programs for bicyclists, contributed to UK’s award. UK started the Bicycle Advisory Committee in 2011 with a commitment of bringing in $100,000 per year for three years to install new facilities and encourage cycling on campus, said Stuart Kearns, associate director of Parking and Transportation

UK is looking to increase bicycle parking by about 10 percent per year and install some covered bicycle racks, especially in residential areas, Kearns added. As part of continuing efforts to improve the bicycle commute for students, employees and faculty, the UK Bicycle Advisory Committee is currently designing a bicycle trail that would connect the Bellefont Bike Route to

the University Drive corridor, said Shane Tedder, sustainability coordinator and member of the Bicycle Advisory Committee. The current plan is to make a 12-foot-wide path through the western edge of The Arboretum's Walnut Woods that would connect University Court to Wildwood Avenue. Improved crossings and signs would then connect Wildwood Avenue to Tahoma, Valley and Glendover roads. “General feedback from the cycling community has See BIKES on page 2

Students to rally together at UK Relay for Life 391 participants will raise money overnight By Abigail Shipp


Members of Delta Zeta sorority walk at Relay for Life last year. 68 teams will participate in this year’s 12-hour event at Johnson Center Fields.

UK students are gearing up for the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life event taking place this weekend on the Johnson Center Fields. Starting on Friday, 68 teams with 391 participants will gather for the 12-hour event to raise money and awareness for cancer research.

“It’s an opportunity for the community to come together to celebrate our cancer survivors, remember those affected by it and to fight back against the disease by raising money for research,” said Elizabeth Raggio, community representative for the American Cancer Society. From 7 p.m.-7 a.m., teams will walk because “cancer never sleeps,” said Bridget Shrigley, marketing junior and marketing

director for UK’s Relay committee. During the opening ceremony, participants can expect to hear various speakers, including Dr. Brett Spear, a researcher from UK’s Markey Cancer Center. The relay begins with the Survivor Lap, where survivors walk to celebrate their win in the battle against cancer. The Caregiver Lap recognizes those who have helped a cancer patient through their journey. See RELAY on page 2

RELAY Continued from page 1 All teams will then be invited to walk with at least one or more members on the track throughout the night. The Luminaria Ceremony is at midnight. Luminarias, which are white paper bags with a glow stick inside, can be purchased for $5 and are decorated to remember those who have passed or are battling cancer. “That’s definitely the most emotional part of the night. A lot of people do cry, which is understandable,” said Brad Harris, economics and finance senior, executive director for UK’s Relay for Life committee and eight-time participant. The event ends with the Fight Back Ceremony, an energetic finale where teams take one more lap and write ways they vow to fight back against cancer. “It’s supposed to mimic how a cancer patient’s day would go,” Harris said. “As the sun goes down, it gets colder and fighting gets harder. The sun comes back up and there’s hope in fighting back.” But the night will be filled with more than just

the relay. The theme this year is Disney, so team members who are not walking can enjoy various Disney-themed games, such as Disney trivia, a Prince Charming contest and more. “We’ve come up with so much stuff to make sure people have ways to stay busy for 12 hours,” Shrigley said. Participants are encouraged to dress up for the various themed laps, which include everything from Epcot to Space Mountain. Participants wearing costumes can earn spirit points, and the person with the most spirit points will receive a prize at the end of the event. The ultimate purpose for the event is to raise money for the American Cancer Society. All profits go toward cancer research, treatment and prevention. UK’s Relay for Life has set a goal to raise $40,000 this year. Last year, they raised about $22,000. Currently, about $16,500 has been raised. “It’s hard to project how much we’ll make,” Raggio said. “But we’re hoping to be at least near $30,000 by this weekend.” Teams pay a $10 registration fee and are encouraged (but not required) to

raise at least $100. Teams who raise $100 or more get a T-shirt and access to catering from Qdoba, Starbucks, Raising Cane’s, Magee’s Bakery and more. The top three teams and the top three individuals to raise the most money will get a prize. As of Monday, team FIJI was in the lead with about $1,650, followed by team Alpha Phi and team Sigma Alpha Epsilon. Harris is the team captain for FIJI. Shrigley, from team AOPII, was in the lead for individuals with about $620. Donations are also accepted by cash or check at Friday’s event, or by credit card at Individuals can register new teams, join existing teams or sign up as volunteers up until the day of the event. “I think the majority of people have been affected (by cancer) in some way, whether they lost someone to it or know someone who’s had it,” Raggio said. “(Relay for Life) is a great way to learn more about it and how you can help.” To learn more about the event or to hear facts about cancer, visit the Relay for Life UK page on Facebook or follow @UKRelayForLife on Twitter.

Bike Week is being hosted this week by the Student Sustainability Council, Office of Sustainability and Parking and Transportation Services, and will feature events aimed at educating the UK community about bicycling safety and bicycle friendly facilities on campus. There will be a Twitter chat to answer any questions about biking on campus on Tuesday from 2-3 p.m. using the hashtag #AskACat. To participate, follow @universityofky. As part of EarthDays in the Bluegrass and the Late Night Film Series, the ecological documentary "Oceans" will be shown for free as a bike-in movie Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the J.F. Hardymon Theatre in the Davis Marksbury Building. There will be prizes for those who ride their bike. The inaugural Bike to Campus Day will be Thurs-

day, and there will be a bikethrough resource fair from 7:30-9:30 a.m. where students can stop by for free breakfast and information about biking on campus at the Wildcat Alumni Plaza across from Memorial Coliseum. The rain location will be the Student Center Patio. “We’ll have information about all kinds of aspects of campus and local cycling,” said Chrissie Tune, PTS spokeswoman. Riding a bicycle to school can be quicker than driving, and can save students money on gas and a parking permit, Tune said. Car-Free Day will be Friday. For a chance to win an EarthDays in the Bluegrass TShirt, students can pledge to not use a car on the UK Sustainability Facebook page. “Transportion is really about people needing to go places, and I think there’s a lot more enjoyable ways to get places than in a vehicle,” Tedder said. “So Car-Free Day is just a way to kind of lightheartedly celebrate that.”

UK students have chance to mentor children Program matches elementary kids with college students By Logan Jeffries

“Connecting college students with the most to give to kids who need it most” is the mission statement of College Mentors For Kids. College Mentors For Kids is a nonprofit that works to provide a college mentor who promotes higher education for children who are living at the poverty level or are potential first-generation students. The organization began in 1996 at Indiana University and Butler University. Today, there are 24 chapters of CMFK at universities

and colleges throughout Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio, according to the organization’s website. There are roughly 1,700 college students that mentor more than 1,500 children through CMFK. “College Mentors for Kids is an amazing program that truly changes the lives of everyone involved,” said Rachel Allgeier, a mentor for UK’s chapter. This is the first year UK has a chapter in the program. There are 24 fourth- and fifth-graders from Harrison Elementary who come to campus each week to engage

in activities geared toward higher education, community service, culture and diversity, according to Emily Pena, UK’s chapter president. By bringing the children to campus, CMFK hopes to develop a mindset for the children that college is a realistic opportunity for them and to help them reach their full potential. The first year for UK’s chapter is coming to a close, but the group is looking to expand. Next year they will have 80 pairs of mentors and “little buddies,” according to Pena. All of the children will be

Harrison Elementary third-, fourth- and fifth-graders. Pena is certain that they can manage the increase, due to the tremendous response the program has had. “We have learned a lot over the course of the year to continue to help us grow and serve more children in the Lexington area,” she said. Allgeier also looks forward to the future of the program. “I hope that our program continues to grow and impact PHOTO BY KALYN BRADFORD | STAFF as many students as possible.” Four mentors meet with their “little buddy” at a CMFK event Tuesday.

to see smoke rising and people running,” Hancock said. “A few seconds later I heard sirens, as well. I wasn't sure what had happened so I just turned on the local news and soon found out.” Hancock said that a family friend who traveled to Boston to watch him race was standing at the finish line. “He said they physically shook him, and chaos ensued,” Hancock said. “He and others knocked over the barriers and ran into the street away from the blasts. He didn't personally see injuries, but he felt like at the time it was too loud and destructive to be an accidental explosion.” Andrea Malji, a PhD candidate who teaches a course titled “Terrorism and Political Violence” at UK, agrees that the event was likely a terrorist attack. According to Malji, there are several factors to look for in determining whether an attack is terroristic, including a political motive, civilian targets, influence of a broad audience and premeditation. All of these factors were present, Malji said.

The simultaneous manner in which the bombs were detonated is characteristic of AlQaeda attacks, according to Malji. However, other factors led her to speculate about the possibility of another suspect group. Malji found it ironic that April 15 is Patriot’s Day, and also the deadline to file taxes with the IRS. Boston is also the location of the historical Boston Tea Party, an event that protested the unfair taxation of American citizens. “All three of these factors made me wonder if it could be a far Right-Wing group,” Malji said. In an address from the White House, President Barack Obama said, “We will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable." As of around 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Hancock said that about a square mile around the scene was roped off. Davis urged Boston citizens to return to their homes and hotels until further notice. “I feel like Boston has handled everything appropriately post-incident,” Hancock said. “All bags that were left at the scene were checked by the local authorities. There are police officers and SWAT team members on every corner right

now.” Malji said that increased security is to be expected as a result of the event. “Whenever these attacks happen … where there are large congregations, you’re going to see heightened security,” she said. Some students have expressed concern over the possibility of a similar event occurring during the Kentucky Derby Festival events taking place early next month. “I think it's natural to have worrisome thoughts about any kind of big gatherings so close to this happening,” Hancock said. “I hate that these kinds of events are almost becoming regular, and I wouldn't blame a person for not wanting to attend Derby because of this.” Kim Schroer, a Kentuckynative who attends Boston College, shared Hancock’s feelings about the unfortunateness of the event. “This is a holiday for us. To have complete excitement and happiness switch to terror and shock is just awful. It's one of the worst feelings in the world,” she said. “The only thing we could think about is whether the close friends we had just cheered on as they passed us at mile 21 were okay.”

UK baseball hosts No. 8 Louisville Tuesday Cats look to reverse poor play from last weekend By Nick Gray

UK baseball seeks to curb its recent skid when Louisville comes to Cliff Hagan Stadium on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. Freshman right-handed pitcher Kyle Cody (3-1, 4.60 ERA) will start against No.8 Louisville (28-7) for the No. 17 Cats (24-11, 7-8 SEC), who lost five out of seven games after defeating the Cardinals 5-4 in 10 innings two weeks ago in Louisville. UK responded to a threegame sweep at LSU two weekends ago with wins against Austin Peay last Tuesday and Friday night against Tennessee in a comeback 5-4 victory. But the Cats fell behind again on Saturday and Sunday, falling just short in a ral-

ly Saturday in a 10-9 Volunteers win and garnering little offense in the series-clinching 5-0 win by the visitors. At a press conference Monday, UK head coach Gary Henderson admits his club is in the middle of a slump. “When you go through that rough patch, the things that you aren’t doing are things you were doing. The absolute basics; two-strike approach at the plate, all of a sudden you’re taking more called thirds because you’re overthinking a little bit when you weren’t doing that early,” Henderson said. “But I think the pressure comes not doing the things you have been doing. We’ve got a good club. But we haven’t played well for two weeks now. And that’s the truth.“ The upcoming schedule

does the Cats no favors, beginning with Tuesday’s game against the Cardinals. For the second time in three weeks, UK will play Louisville then travel to a nationally-ranked conference opponent for a three-game series (at No. 14 South Carolina this weekend). First, the Cats will face the Cardinals, who swept Elon in a three-game series last weekend. Junior infielder Ty Young leads Louisville in batting average (.400), hits (50), home runs (3) and runs batted in (39). Young also has 18 stolen bases. Sophomore infielder Sutton Whiting is hitting .345 with 19 runs batted in. Junior outfielder Cole Sturgeon is also hitting .345 with 23 runs batted in. Junior outfielder and team captain Adam Engel has 30


Sophomore first baseman A.J. Reed singles against Tennessee on Saturday. The Cats lost 10-9. stolen bases, leading the Cardinals. UK’s Cody started against Louisville on April 2, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits throughout 6.1 innings. Cody also worked into the sixth inning

last Tuesday against Austin Peay, collecting his third win of the year. Sophomore first baseman A.J. Reed hit his ninth home run of the season Saturday, a grand slam in the ninth inning. Reed leads the Cats in

home runs, hits (42) and runs batted in (37). Tuesday’s game will be televised on FOX Sports South at 6:30 p.m. Head football coach Mark Stoops will throw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Mathies taken at No. 10 in WNBA Draft UK Hoops senior becomes highest drafted player in program history UK guard and two-time SEC Player of the Year A’dia Mathies was selected No. 10 by the Los Angeles Sparks in the WNBA Draft Monday night. Mathies’ selection makes her the highest draft pick in program history. Mathies led UK to its third Elite Eight in four years. The Cats lost to eventual champion Connecticut, 8353, on April 1. Mathies is UK Hoops’ all-time winningest

senior, along with teammate Brittany Henderson. Mathies ranks in the top 10 of 13 all-time statistical categories at UK, including first in games played (140), games started (139) and steals (320). Mathies finished her career second in scoring, tallying 2,014 points in four years. She is the fifth player in UK basketball history, men’s and women’s, to break the 2,000 point mark.

Mathies finished second in 3-point field goals made (177) and field goals attempted (1,687), third in field goals made (712), free throws made (413) and attempted (590), and ninth in assists (349). Mathies becomes the second first round pick from UK in the last three years. In 2011, Victoria Dunlap was selected at No. 11 by the Washington Mystics. “She did so much for the

Kentucky program while she as here and we had no doubt she was one of the top players in the country,” UK Hoops head coach Matthew Mitchell said. “Being chosen as a first-round pick just shows what she did for us and how hard she has worked to get here. I think the Los Angeles Sparks made a great pick.” STAFF REPORT

Further insight into the life of a UK student-athlete This is second in a series about the life of a UK student-athlete. Being a student-athlete can be very strenuous on both your mind and your body and it is very time consuming. Most of an athlete’s day is already planned out for them and they don’t have very much time to themJANEE selves. THOMPSON When I asked different Guest athletes about their schedcolumnist ules, some of the responses were gruesome. UK Hoops sophomore Jelleah Sydney gave a full description of her

day. “A basic day for me is very long. My longest days are when we have weights in the morning. I go to weight lifting at 7 a.m.8 a.m. then I can shower and maybe get a snack before I head to my tutor at 9 a.m. That tutor ends at 9:50 a.m. then I go class 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m., class 12 p.m.-12:50 p.m. and class 1 p.m.-1:50 p.m. “Then after that class I head over to the gym to get ready for practice at 3 p.m. I’m usually able to eat the sandwich that I pack while I’m getting ready at this time. Then I have practice from about 3 p.m.-5:30 p.m. Then we have mandatory study hall from 7 p.m.-9 p.m.” Many of their decisions are made for them. There are so many rules that you have to follow as a UK student athlete.

UK’s name carries a lot of pride behind it. As an athlete attending the university, you are an extension of the leaders of the school. You are a direct outlet for people to see what UK as a whole is really about. So, in order to make sure that the university is being correctly represented, there is a certain way student-athletes have to carry themselves. Whether is it in public or in the classroom or through social media, there are things a UK student-athlete can and cannot do. Student-athletes are never just free to express themselves. There is a very fine line drawn and they are not allowed to cross it. “We always have to watch what we put on Twitter or Instagram because there is always someone checking up on you,” said

Farrington Huguenin, UK sophomore football player. “It’s not like regular college kids you can put whatever they want and say whatever they want. Our coaches expect us to be adults and to be responsible so you can’t just go on the Internet cursing or expressing your feelings about certain issues that are going on.” Huguenin also explained that some of the restrictions are for the best because they will have you portrayed in a light that you want to be in. Although he may think it is for the best, some student-athletes don’t like not having that same amount of freedom that most college students have. Janee Thompson is a member of the UK Hoops team.

Dodgeball falls in semifinal No. 1 Cats lose to eventual national champion


The No. 1 UK Club dodgeball team hosted the national championships for intramural dodgeball at the Seaton Center last weekend. By Boyd Hayes

Hopes were high for UK Club dodgeball last week as the National Collegiate Dodgeball Association championship tournament approached, with the No. 2 Cats playing host. After reaching the Final Four on Sunday, the Cats were disappointed to meet their end at the hands of the eventual champions, Grand Valley State. UK senior captain Zac Brown was still pleased with

his team, despite the defeat. "I am extremely proud of how my team composed themselves this year. We had a phenomenal team and a great group of guys," Brown said. After beating No. 22 Penn State, 9-0, on Friday night, the Cats advanced to beat No. 5 Michigan State, 4-2, and No. 14 Bowling Green State, 4-0, to wrap up the group stage, determining who the Cats would play come Sunday. On Friday and Saturday,

many UK fans showed up to witness the action, as free Tshirts were given to the first 100 fans to arrive wearing UK blue. "I can say without a doubt that our games against Penn State and Ohio State were the best crowds that we have ever had, with nearly 1,000 people in the gym during those games," Brown said. UK were selected to face No. 15 Miami (Ohio) in the Sweet Sixteen, pulling out a 5-0 victory. UK faced No. 8 Ohio State in the Elite Eight, and were surprised to be down 20 at halftime. However, a second-half rally saw the Cats tie the game at 2-2 by the end of regulation, and move on to steal a 3-2 victory in overtime, advancing them to the Final Four for a second consecutive season. As predicted by senior assistant captain Dakota Taylor, the Cats ran into No. 6 Grand Valley State of Michigan, a team familiar with postseason success, in the semifinal. Despite a strong team effort, the Cats fell to Grand Valley, 3-1, ending their hopes of a championship. Grand Valley State went on to defeat Michigan State in the final. Despite the disappointment at the end of his final season with the Cats, Brown is still optimistic about the solidarity of UK's team next season. "We are graduating a few seniors this year, but we will return around 13 of our roster from the Nationals squad," Brown said. Next year's nationals are to be hosted by Ohio State.
