Above: ESPN college basketball commentator Dick Vitale studies statistics before UK's game against Mississippi State on Saturday night at
Rupp Arena. Vitale was covering the game as part of ESPN's College Gameday. Below: Vitale appears on one of several ESPN's live broadcasts
from the Lexington Civic Center. Vitale, who has covered college hoops for 25 years, was one of the main attractions for fans.

The Big Blue sea parts as seven officers escort him
to the stage. Once the crowd catches a glimpse of
the boisterous broadcaster, they reach a fevered

Chants of "Dickie V. Dickie V" fill the room. As
show time approaches, the applause crescendos.
Dick Vitale, the voice of college basketball, signs
autographs for the sport's groupies. Then it gets
really loud. The show starts.

"It's kind of like walking in every arena with Elvis,"
says Brad Nessler, Vitale's broadcast partner.

fter 2’) years of energizing the sport with catch»
phrases anti youthful enthusiasm. the 65-year-
old Vitale still gets goosebumps. And tipoff is
still an hour away.

This is ESPN College Gameday Saturday night in the
lobby of Rupp Arena. right before UK and Mississippi
State take center stage.

“The game's the easy part." Vitale says. "i couldn't
hear anything (host Chris) Fowler was saying."

The calm before the storm

Three hours before the game. the arena is virtually

The lights are dim.

More shockingly. Vitale is silent.

He hides in a dressing room to read notes and statisr

“Oh boy. i need to see what they are going to ask me on
the show." Vitale says.

As the clock clicks down toward tipofT. the ease wears
off. The hyperactive announcer has returned.

Before going on air. Vitale turns to Nessler, his play
by-play announcer and friend. to take away the anxiety

“He‘ll put me in a comfort zone.“ Vitale says.

So. how does anyone do that?

“I tell him to calm down." Nessler says.

Luckily for Vitale. he still is bouncing off the walls af-

ter a day of travel.

For the past two and a half years. \‘itale has spent as
little time on the road as possible. He would rather be at
his Lakewmd Ranch. Fla. home with his wife. Lorraine.
than travel up and down the interstate.

ESPN pays for a commercial plane ticket. but Vitale
pays a little extra and flies on a private jet instead. He
uses extra income from speaking engagements at about
swim a pop and his seven books to help fund the dif-
ference. But it's all worth it.

"It's been a godsend." Vitale says.

When he does stay in a hotel. he makes sure to relax

ing all the stats and information about the teams he'll be

funds to honor

fallen soldier

UK student Jeffrey Scott died in Iraq;
scholarship will aid engineering majors

By Becky Hall
in: KENTUCKY kcnuci.

For UK engineering professor Paul Goodrum. the “cheer-
ful presence" of one student defines his memory of a class he
taught a few years ago.

While other students may have been asleep or distracted.
Goodrum could always count on Jeffrey Graham to pick up
the spirits of others in the classroom.

“He was one of those students who always gave a smile no
matter how bad a lecture was going." Goodrum said. “He was
the type of student who makes this job worthwhile."

Graham who was killed Feb. 19. 2004. in Iraq is being
honored with an engineering scholarship commemorating
his achievements as a soldier and
member of the UK community.

Graham graduated with honors
from UK in May 2003 in civil engi-
neering. He was also a member of
UK's Army ROTC program. The
ROTC has a room called “the Gra-
ham room." dedicated to Graham‘s
memory and containing many of
his military awards.

Two of his fellow civil engi-
neering classmates. Lee Carlisle
and Ulric Kulik. cofounded the 2nd
Lt. Jeffrey C. Graham Memorial
Scholarship in August 2004 to hon-
or Graham‘s achievements at UK
and his sacrifices as a soldier.

“Jeff didn‘t get to pursue his
dreams as an engineer." Carlisle
said. “This scholarship is a way to
provide the opportunity for some-
one else to carry on the engineer-
ing dreams he didn‘t get to fulfill."

Kulik said he admires Graham’s dedication to his country

“He had the option to stay here but he wanted to go (to
Iraq)." Kulik said.

“Jeff did something for us. so we wanted to do something
for him."

Graham was offered a desk job in the United States after
the unexpected death of his brother Kevin in June 2003.

But Carol Graham. Jeffrey Graham‘s mother. remembers
her son telling her. “‘the only thing worse than a country at
war is a soldier not at war.”

While serving in Iraq. Graham told his family of his de-
sire to help rebuild the war—torn country:

"His dream was to help rebuild the roads. bridges and
buildings in Iraq." Carol Graham said. “He loved serving his

UK'smedical center
offers hepatitis study

By Jeff Fichner

People with hepatitis C may qualify to participate in a
study with investigative medicine at the Chandler Medical

The program. ldeal Study. is designed to test whether
smaller doses of a common treatment. interferon. for he—
patitis C may be as effective as larger doses currently be-
ing administered. said Dr. Alvaro Koch. an assistant medi-
cine professor.

“There is some infor-
mation from previous
studies that raises ques-
tions about using less of
the drug interferon to
treat hepatitis C and get-
ting the same results as
larger doses." he said.

The Ideal Study is
sponsored by the Schering
Plough Corporation and will involve 2.880 patients at 100
CS. study centers.

Koch said Schering-Plough contacted UK because they
were aware of the medical center's work and believed it
would be an ideal location for a test center.

Patients will participate in the study for a year and
must meet certain criteria.

Most importantly. Koch said. patients must have never
received any form of treatment for hepatitis C. to be con-
sidered for the study

if accepted. patients will begin a 12-week screening
phase to see if they respond to initial treatments. If there
is no response. patients will not be permitted to continue
in the study. Koch said.

Those who fully respond will continue treatment. how
ever. as will partial responders. who will be retested after
six months to verify treatment response.

The major downfall of interferon is side effects. Koch

"The goal is to determine whether a smaller dosage is
indeed as effective. so patients can continue using the drug
for longer periods of time due to reduced amounts of side
effects." he said.

Koch said the study benefits those diagnosed with he-
patitis C because it is a way to get free treatment.

“A problem for many people is that Medicare doesn't
cover hepatitis C medication. and the treatment can be
pretty expensive." Koch said.

Koch also said the study may curb drug abuse problems
in Eastern Kentucky.

“We are working to help unveil the hepatitis C problem

On Feb. 19. 2004. Graham was killed by an
improvised explosive device that detonated
seconds after he spotted it and warned his
troops. His actions saved the lives of many
men in his platoon.

After his death. the military awarded Gra-
ham the Bronze Star and Purple Heart.


Graham and his personality left the same
impact on his family as it did his friends and

“His smile lit up a room and he was very
charismatic." said Melanie Graham. Jeffrey's
younger sister and a UK nursing junior.

“Jeff was pretty much happy all the
time." Kulik said. “He was always in a posi-
tive mode."

Goodrum. who taught Graham in two
courses. said he was a strong engineering

“He was always appreciative of what
we‘re trying to accomplish as educators."
Goodrum said.

“I felt like i lost someone in my own fami-
ly." he said of Graham‘s death.

The only challenger to Graham‘s love of
engineering and the ROTC was UK basket-

He and his brother Kevin once painted
the NCAA tournament bracket ton the wall of
their apartment. The two also built stadium
seating so they could watch games on TV
with 50 or 60 friends. Melanie Graham said.

While stationed in Fallujah. Iraq. Jeff
turned his camp into a UK basketball haven.
He decorated the camp with UK memorabilia
sent to him by family and friends. Carol Gra-
ham said.

At night he would write “Go Big Blue!" on
the dry erase board so it was the first thing
his men saw in the morning. she said. Two
months before he was killed. Graham was
able to watch last year‘s Kentucky-Indiana
basketball game on TV in lraq.


'A tribute to Jeff'

The 2nd Lt. Jeffrey C. Graham Memorial
Scholarship is still in the fundraising stage.
The goal is to raise 310.000 in two years so
the scholarship can be endowed. meaning it
will be offered every year.

If the monetary goal is not met. the fu-
ture of the scholarship will be unclear. said

vSharon Townsend. a marketing specialist in

the Office of Engineering Advancement.

So far. fundraising efforts have raised
$7 000 since August 2004. Carlisle said. Engi-
ne ering societies civil engineering firms and
private citizens have all contributed to the
cause. he said.

Other fundraising efforts are being orga~
nized by the UK College of Engineering.
Townsend said. She said efforts to encourage
donations for the scholarship fund have been
included in engineering publications. The of-
fice has also sent appeals through direct mail.

Letters asking for support for the scholar-
ship will be sent to Graham‘s classmates and
young UK alumni. Tovmsend said.

“We’re just honored they would want to

The scholarship is fitting because of
Jeff’s love for his major and his school. his

Israel frees Palestinian captives

freed 500 Palestinian prison-
ers Monday. the first such
mass release since Palestin-
ian Authority President Ab-
bas took office last month.

At checkpoints in the
West Bank and Gaza Strip.
tearful Palestinian families
greeted prison buses carry-
ing the freed men. Some of
the men stepped off the bus-
es. dropped to their knees
and kissed the ground.

Prisoner releases are seen
as one of the most crucial
means by which Israel can
bolster Abbas‘ credibility in
the eyes of Palestinians and
build on the momentum gen-
erated by a peace summit
earlier this month in Egypt.

Few issues galvanize


In the last decade. the pub-
lic has seen a series of high
profile drugs designed to treat
everything from diabetes to
heartburn banished from the
market. and it was widely be-
lieved early last week that the
painkillers called COX-:3 in-
hibitors would succumb to
the same fate.

But when two Food and
Drug Administration panels
narrowly voted Friday to al-
low Vioxx to make a coine-
back and for (‘elebrex and
Bextra to remain on pharma-

and health-care activists re-

For Palestinians. the

“I could hardly picture
any more what my wife and

In the northern West

Palestinian man was killed
by celebratory gunfire.

Monday's release was the
largest since 1996, when Is-

under the terms of the Oslo
