The Viagra that's currently available
to men suffering from impotency comes
in tablet form and is poorly soluble in wa‘
ter. Dittert said.

This delays response to the drug and
requires a higher dosage to combat the di-
gestive enzymes the tablet encounters on
its way to the small intestine. where it is
absorbed into the blood.

Dittert said a nasally administered
Viagra would take 10 to 13 minutes to be-
gin working.

The faster-acting Viagra would help
to eliminate overdoses.

White House criticizes GOP brief

WASHINGTON — The White House yester-
day dismissed the House Republicans’ brief for
the impeachment trial. calling it an overblown
account that “reads like a cheap mystery."

“The discussions about sinister plots is
something you would expect to read in a novel
rather than in a document by the House of Repre-
sentatives,” White House spokesman Joe Lock-
hart said. Lockhart said the brief was a “con-
stantly shifting" version of the charges that re-
lies on "hyperbole and overblown rhetoric.” The
White House will offer its own next installment

Pizza deal falls through ox“ sages:

Papa John' 5 receives letter from UK severing
deal allowing students to use PLUS account

By Jessica Coy

Buying a pizza will not be
as simple as whipping out your
UK ID and paying for it with
PLUS account funds.

Last week Papa John’s re-
ceived a letter from UK termi-
nating the contract that allowed
the pizza chain to accept PLUS
accounts as a method of pay-
ment, said David Strickland,
district manager of Papa

Douglas Stephan, a Lex-
ington attorney representing
UK, said the letter was in
keeping with a termination
provision in the contract that
allows either side to cancel the
deal at any time for any rea-

Stephan said UK has not re-

ceived a formal response from
Papa John’s regarding the let-
ter, but Strickland said he does-
n’t see how a response will
change anything.

“They terminated our con-
tract and that is that. It was
their decision and I don't see
how anything we can do will
change that," he said.

The letter was sent last
week after Fayette Circuit
Judge Gary Payne placed a tem-
porary injunction on UK, for-
bidding students to use their
PLUS accounts to purchase piz-
za from Papa John‘s.

According to court docu-
ments, on Oct. 15, Domino's
placed a motion before the
court calling for a temporary
restraining order and prelimi-
nary injunction, which the
court ordered on Nov. 16.

The documents said that
the court “found that Domino' 5
would suffer irreparable injury
given its inability to recover
lost profits or market shares in
a court of law because UK has
sovereign immunity, if a tempo-
rary restraining order or pre-
liminary injunction was not is-

UK filed a motion on Dec. 4
asking the court to dissolve the
temporary injunction. a motion
the court overruled last Thurs

Judson Ridgway, manager
and franchisee of the Domino’s
on Euclid Avenue. said he was
happy with the judge's decision
to uphold the injunction, which
will stay in place until a trial is

"Any company willing to
pay for the equipment should
be able to service the Universi-
ty," he said. “Students should
have a voice about who they
want to order pizza from on a
daily basis. It should not be diC»

tated by the University"

Although the Domino' s
camp is pleased with the court-
room proceedings, Bullock said
the news of UK' s decision to ter
minate the PLUS account con-
tract altogether comes as a dis-

“The PLUS system is a
good system and could definite-
ly help UK, tlies tudents, the
community and local pizza
companies if implemented equi
tably," he said. “It doesn t make
sense for UK to cancel the
whole thing now.”

Nate Brown, UK's Student
Government Association presi-
dent, said he was disappointed
with UK’s decision.

“It‘s definitely frustrating
to hear that there will no
longer be this service, especial-
ly considering that so many
students were excited about
it," he said. “Hopefully in the
future this service will be
opened up to all pizza ven~



LCC grads mastering tests

Success comes from hard work, dedication
as students smash national statistics

By Roxanne McEntire

The majority of the 1998
graduates from Lexington Com-
munity College‘s health pro-
grams surpassed the national
average scores on the mandato-
ry certification tests in their

“I applaud these graduates
for their performance as well
as the instructors who practice
excellence in teaching," LCC
president Jim Kerley said.
“These results support the fact
that LCC is preparing its stu-

dents to compete, and to excel,
on a local, national and global

Kerley said he isn’t sur-
prised that graduates from LCC
compete so well on the national
level, and said they are well-
prepared to excel wherever
they choose to work.

The national average pass
rate for the nursing certifica-
tion exam, the NCLEX, was 88
percent last year; the pass rate
for graduates from LCC’s
nursing program was 96 per-

The 1998 dental hygiene,

respiratory care, nuclear medi-
cine technology and dental lab-
oratory technology graduates
from LCC had a 100 percent
pass rates for their certification
exams, while the national rates
ranged from 71 to 95 percent.

The Dental Laboratory
Technology program was par-
ticularly successful: Graduates
from it scored an average of 84
percent on the Recognized
Graduate Exam, which was the
second-highest mean among 32
contenders throughout the na-

Kerley said the success of
last year‘s health graduates
came from hard work on their
part, but it is crucial educators
are dedicated to their task.

Perhaps the best measure

of LCC’s success is the reviews
given by the students them-
selves. Many agreed that LCC
serves them well, and that LCC
genuinely cares about their

“They work with the stu-
dents -— if they see a problem,
they (the professors) try their
best to help,” said Barbara Sta-
ley, an undeclared freshman.
Students say personal attention
is high on their list of priori-
ties. The small class sizes at
LCC attract many of them.

Terri Tincher, a dental hy-
giene sophomore, said the small
class sizes are the secret of
LCC’s success. There was one
caveat for Terri, though: “I
wish it was easier to get into
the programs.”


No big money from Outback Bowl

After all the expenses are paid, conference
gets its share, UK not seeing lots of green

By Brooke Ison

While bowl games may be a
reward for a successful season,
they are often ones that come
without as much financial val-
ue as one would expect.

Purses such as the $11 mil-
lion Fiesta Bowl jackpot and
even the Outback‘s $3.6 million
purse might suggest a big pay-
day from the games.

Not necessarily.

Of the $3.6 million in the
Outback purse, each team re-
ceives $1.8 million for partici-
pating. Once the money is on
UK’s side, almost half of it,

$840,000, will go to the school
and the remaining money will
be pooled into a larger fund for
the entire conference.

This is because of a formu-
la used by the Southeastern
Conference, said Larry Ivy,
UK’s senior associate athletics

It may not be millions of
dollars, but at least UK didn’t
lose money at the Outback
Bowl. The cost of attending a
bowl game usually does not bal-
ance out with the money
earned from it. Most schools go
in the red.

Ivy estimates that $240,000
will be all that is left of UK’s

portion after the teams’ expens-
es from Tampa are paid. It
takes a lot of money to send 102
football players, 300 band mem-
bers and 100 staff and board
members to Florida for two
weeks. Airfare alone for the
football team and staff ran
about $120,000. Charter buses
for the band cost $30,000. And
the bills are still coming, Ivy

Asked if he was pleased
with this leftover sum, he said,
“Yeah. It's more than we bud-
geted for."

It is not clear how the mon-
ey from the Outback Bowl will
be spent.

“There is a lot of building
going on. The money will be put
in a reserve to finance later pro
jects,” Ivy said.

Aside from the direct par-

ticipation earnings, other pay-
offs to UK will include in-
creased ticket sales and more
sponsorships, said Kyle Moats,
UK’s assistant athletic director
for marketing.

Also, Outback Bowl mer-
chandise should bring in a good
amount of revenue for the Uni-
versity. Right now, though,
Moats said it is too early to tell
how much will be earned.

While all the official num-
bers are not in, UK should
make a decent amount of mon-
ey off the game, more than it
made at the Peach Bowl in 1993.
Figures show only $140,000 was
made from participation in the
bowl and only about $10,000 was
made from merchandise sales.
So far, Ivy said, 1999 figures
have easily surpassed these

President's Initiative striving to achieve goal
of making students’ experience best possible

By Karla Dooley

Close your eyes, lean back
in your chair and relax.

Imagine a university
where all of the classrooms are
clean, attractive and comfort-

At least a third are
equipped with multimedia

All freshmen are enrolled
in a small discovery seminar
taught by a faculty member
who guides them through an
interactive, inquiry-based ex-

Seniors complete a re-
search project that combines
everything they've learned

he said.

The initiative started last
summer, after the Boyer Com-
mission released a study criti-

came out at about the same
time the Kentucky legislature
issued its goal for UK to be-
come a top 20 research institu-

“We thought it was appro

“We’ve made some signifi-
