Faculty center may get $4.4 mil overhaul

By Adam Slclilio
rut krkiuckv mm

A $4.38 million overhaul for
the Hilary J. Boone Center is set
to begin in October, pending a
vote tomorrow from the Board of

But the controversial plans
have members of the UK commu-
nity — including Board of
Trustees members — weighing
the short-term costs with the po-
tential long-term gains.

“The question that we’ve got to
answer is, ‘Is the timing right to
do this renovation and spend this
money?” said board secretary
Russ Williams. “Even though the

source of money for this is pri-
vate, it's still a really tight time
right now.

“It’s a matter of timing."

UK will pay for the construc-
tion strictly through private dona-
tions. About half the funding was
donated specifically to the center,
which is on the corner of Rose
Street and Columbia Avenue.

The remainder comes from
“unrestricted" funds — non-spe-
cific donations that can be used
anywhere on campus, said Presi-
dent Lee Todd.

“The bottom line is that this
money does not come out of the
university’s General Fund,” a

fund that includes student tuition
payments. he said.

Todd said the renovations are
needed now to help him attain two
of his goals: a better conference
center and more fundraising.

“Most of our competitive uni-
versities have a conference center
on campus that really draws peo-
ple into the campus," Todd said.
“We have people who go to our
football stadium and basketball
games, but we don't have a place
for our faculty and staff to go.

As of July. the center hosted 20
to 25 events a week. said Chris
Mefford. who worked at the center

serving as event coordinator for
part of that time.

In July, the center had about
1,800 members with 60 percent of
that being faculty and staff. he
said. Faculty. staff and parents
had the largest dues of $15 a
month. The other membership
categories. which were free or at

“The other reason is to en-

he said. “We spent $1.4 million for
four fundraising functions at Lex-
ington hotels last year. We need to

Last year. the center did $1.2
million in business. Mefford said.

The center closed Sept. 1 in
preparation for construction. Be-
fore then, the I7-year-old facility
hosted workshops. recruitment ef-
forts for potential students and
business partners, seminars and
even weddings, said Becky Nau-
gle. chair of the house and reno-

NEW YORK , One late Au»
gust evening, Alexander Pincus

"He said ‘follow me' and we
went a few feet and cops

“They handcuffed us and
made us kneel for aii hour“

Police carted Pincus to a
holding cell topped with razor
wire and held him for 35 hours
without access to a lawyer.

The floor was a soup of oil

had so few porto—potties that
some people relieved them-
selves in the corner.

his shoulder as police pulled
back his arms to handcuff him.

is what you get for protesting.”
said Pincus. whose account of
his arrest is supported by deli
workers atid a time-stamped
