The Low-down

Possible breakthrough on Kosovo

LONDON — All factions of the ethnic Alba-

Former Sen. Bob Dole, who negotiated the
agreement at the request of President Clinton.
told Secretary of State Madeleine Albright on
Saturday he was confident Kosovo’s Albanians
would follow through.

That would leave the Serbs’ refusal to accept
NATO’s peacekeeping role as the main stum-

Students: Donovan a drag

Not up to par: Administration not up to par
on responding to complaints. residents say

By Ann Mullins

Tanya Stith didn’t know
what she was getting into
when she moved from North
Campus into Donovan Hall two
years ago.

The condition of her hall‘s
bathroom and the laundry
room has been a nightmarish
experience for her.

“This dorm is in bad need
of repair, and l have com-
plained about it from the time I
got here," she said.

The final straw for Stith
came when she had to wade
through water to get to a work-
ing washing machine.

Residents of Donovan Hall
have said they are unhappy
with the state of ill-repair in
specific areas of the dorm, and
think their complaints are
falling on deaf ears.

One laundry room with six
washers and eight dryers serves
the dorm, which is home to
more than 300 female students.

Often, only one or two
washing machines work and
students wait in line to use
them, Stith said. Students com-
plained to maintenance, resi-
dent assistants and the hall di-
rector during hall meetings, but
still nothing was done, she said.

Residents got so frustrated
over the lack of attention to the
washing machine problem,
they started a petition and sent
it to UK administration last
week in hopes of getting some—
thing done, said Raina Turner,
hall director at Donovan.

About 250 residents signed
the petition that was sent last
week to Jim Wims. director of
Residence Life, Stith said.

Wims was unavailable for
comment, but Pat Whitlow, asso
ciate director of Residence Life,
said she was aware Donovan res-
idents were preparing a petition,
but did not know if it ever got to
the Residence Life office.

Vice Chancellor for Admin-
istration Jack Blanton, who said

facilities are in top condition,
was unaware of the petition.

“No one in Residence Life
has called my office about a
problem and no petition has
come through.“ he said. “We
can’t fix things if we don’t
know if they are in a state of

“We have a very good re-
lationship with maintenance,
but students are able to con-
tact them directly," Whitlow
said. “They do not have to go
through us in any way to get
their maintenance needs

But students felt like they
did have to take it a step fur—
ther, because they were being
told in hall meetings that their
complaints would not be noted
unless their parents called to
complain, Turner said.

“I'm not saying that no-
body takes the students seri-
ously," she said. “But parents
are the ones that have money
in their pockets."

Many students, like Stith,
help pay their way through
school with jobs and scholar-
ship money, and feel that they
have a right to be heard too.

After many weeks of wait-
ing for repair, maintenance
fixed the machines and the
drainage problem on Friday.
But Donovan‘s problems don‘t
end there. The condition of oth-
er areas, such as bathrooms,
concern students as well.

The ceiling on one first-
floor bathroom leaks, and mold
and mildew from the ceiling
grows and drips down into the
shower, students pointed out.
The peeling plaster and debris
overhead falls off at any given
moment, Stith said.

“Maintenance came out to
fix it, but they just covered up
the problem by lowering the
ceiling over the showers and
nailing boards over other trou-
ble spots," she said. “A week
would pass and slowly you
would see water spots and pink
mold growing up there again."

The age of the building only
aggravates the situa-
tion, Turner said.

water fountains in

pipes and walls in

“It's up to the residents to

and something needs to be
done," Bailey said.

Nat Pulmano, a business
and economics freshman, said
she thought about buying a pair
of swim shoes to wade through
the standing water in the laun-
dry room.

“The only thing I have a
hard time with at Donovan is
when the washers and dryers
don’t work," she said.

they are encouraged to call

she said.

“They‘ve dug out those trees

Stith said.

“These things take time.

Stith and Bailey agree that
their experience at UK has been
a positive one.

“If you were going to come
to school here, this is a great
place to be; it’s so pretty."

But she wouldn't suggest
anyone live in Donovan Hall.



Tax credits music to many ears

Hope for the future: New tax breaks could
mean some significant savings for students

By Robert Ouan

New tax breaks could mean
a cheaper stay at UK.

Starting in 1998, some part
of tuition and fees now count as
tax credits when you file 1998
federal income tax returns.

This is the first year these
credits are available, said Dan
Boone, a communications spe-
cialist for the Internal Revenue
Service. The two new credits
are the Hope Credit and the
Lifetime Learning Credit.

The Hope credit is avail-
able to freshmen and sopho-
mores. It counts 100 percent of
the first $1,000, and 50 percent
of the next $1,000 of tuition and
fees as a tax credit up to a $1,500


The Lifetime Learning
Credit is available to anyone
who is enrolled, no matter how
long they have been in school.
It counts 20 percent of each
$1,000 paid for tuition and fees
as a tax credit up to a $1,000
maximum, he said.

“I’ve been asked about tax
deductions on school and tu-
ition for years," he said. “I'm
glad to finally be able to tell peo
ple that yes, there are deduc-
tions for school now.”

People often get confused
about the two different credits,
said Loretta Datoma, assistant
director of Student Billing Ser-
vices and tax compliance man-

“The big question we get is

about the Hope Credit and who
is eligible," she said. “It’s open
only for the first two years
someone is enrolled. But a lot of
people don’t know the lifetime
learning credit is available."
Student Billing Services
mailed out almost 30,000 infor-
mation letters, account state-
ments and 1098-T forms,
Datoma said. The 1098—T forms
confirm a student's enrollment
at part-time or more and go in
the student‘s records, he said.
To obtain the tax credit,
Boone said students or their par-
ents need to fill out form 8863
and attach it to a regular 1040 or
1040A. There is also an income
limit on who can take the credit.
Boone suggested people
take advantage of the Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance pro-
gram or get professional help if
they have a lot of questions.
Courtney Wallace, an ar-
chitecture senior, normally

files his own returns. This year
he went to the assistance pro-
gram to get help with the new
student tax credit.

“I’ve never gotten help be-
fore," Wallace said. “My main
impetus was the tuition thing.
Normally I don‘t have a prob-
lem with taxes. I just have a
problem with owing the govem-
ment money."

Andrew Sparks, a law stu-
dent and one of the assistance
program volunteers, said stu-
dents should also pay attention
to the new deduction for inter—
est paid on student loans.
Sparks said the deduction can
be important for people just
graduating from school with a
lot of loans out.

“It's really about time for a
tuition credit,” said Sebastian
Parks. an architecture senior.
“I don’t really know much
about it, but hell yes. if I can
take it, I will.“



Cutting common

What Friday classes? Students find all sorts
of ways to avoid class to start the break early

By Jonathan Johnson

Spring Break doesn‘t start
early enough for many stu-
dents, who will skip classes
days before the academic calen-
dar declares vacation.

“Most of my classes are can-
celed for Thursday and Friday,
and the ones that aren’t, I’ll
probably just cut," said unde-
clared freshman Chris Brown.

Undeclared freshman
Justin Davis plans on taking
Friday 011‘ to prepare for his trip
to Florida. Even teachers expect
students to cut class, and offer
incentives to those that do come
to class, like extracredit quizzes.

“I plan on coming to class
just in case a teacher is nice


- Lr-Joooooooeec-c- ‘

and does give out bonus
points," undeclared freshman
Geri Cobb said.

Several instructors even go
the extra mile and cancel Friday
classes rather than attend and
see the poor student turnout.

“It’s nice when teachers do
it, but they’re not obligated to
do it," said Wendy Cunning-
ham, a secondary education
sophomore. “I really like it
when they do.”

Those who do not cancel
class offer the day as an opportu-
nity to make up a missed quiz,
or to review and get caught up
on the material before students
take their next exam.

“I never got sick during the
semester, so I didn‘t miss any
Wm." Davis said. “One of my


for end of week

teachers is offering a day to
make up any ones we missed, so
it‘s kind of a free day for me."

A few teachers, though, just
continue with their planned
material, but any student with
a friend who went to class can
copy the day's notes and not fall
behind, many say.

“Most students have to
miss because their planes or
whatever leave Thursday or
Friday, so I‘d have no problem
letting someone copy my notes
so they don‘t fall behind," said
Alex Ciric, a business manage-
ment sophomore.

It's not uncommon for stu-
dents to show up Friday mom-
ing expecting to sit through one
more long class session to find
the instructor has canceled
class, students said.

“You can really tell that
some teachers are getting a lit-
tle tired too," said engineering
freshman Matt Ritter. “I would


n‘t be surprised to drive up
here Friday morning and see a
piece of paper by the door
telling me to go home."

On the other end of the

day that I have to study for."
Ciric said.

Rebecca Whitehead. a
Spanish teaching assistant.
sympathizes with students who
have to show up to take her
planned quiz.

“On Friday I have to give a
quiz," she said. “I know that
students don‘t want to have
class, but I have to enforce the
rules. I‘m sure they‘d rather be
at home.”

not penalize students for skip.

idea is to check the syllabus.
