Army depot prepares for war with Iraq

Weapons of mass destruction: Decision forthcoming
on disposal method of chemical agents stored in Ky.



Bases and battleships
aren‘t the only areas of the
military that are preparing
for a strike in Iraq.

Since Thanksgiving. ac-
tivity at the Blue Grass Army
depot has increased. accord-
ing to Dave Easter. depot pub-
lic affairs officer

Easter will speak to the
American Society of Mechan-

ical Engineers tonight in the
Boone Center.

He will discuss the cur-
rent activities of the depot.
which is located near Rich-
mond, as well as the technolo-
gy involved in disposing of
the chemical weapons stored
at the complex.

Controversy has sur-
rounded the depot as various
groups debate the best

method of disposing of the
chemical weapons stored
there. A plan to incinerate the
chemicals was nixed last fall.

Easter says the final word
on the fate of the chemical
agents is due any day.

“It should be formalized
in the next week on how to de
stroy our weapons." Easter

“I‘m going talk about how

big the depot is. [the] things
we‘re doing right now. and the
current status of our chemi-
cal weapons.“ Easter said.
‘Approximately 1.7 percent of
our [nation's] chemical
weapons are stored here."

Last month. more than
200 protesters used the depot
as a backdrop to speak out
against the impending war
with Iraq.

When the decision on de-
stroying the chemicals comes.
it will likely draw from four
suggestions detailed in an 854-
page Army report released
this year

In the report. the US.
deputy secretary of defense
said the preferred technique

health board
smoking ban


Health officials in
Lexington, a hub of bur‘
ley tobacco sales, will
begin drafting a regula~
tion to outlaw smoking
in bars and restaurants.

A similar measure
is pending before the
city council, which
tabled a proposed ordi-
nance by a 65 vote in
December: A public
hearing on the matter is
scheduled for Feb. 20.

On Monday, the
Fayette County Board of
Health voted unani-
mously to start drafting
a restaurant smoking

The board would
probably not vote on the
matter for two more

Mayor Teresa Isaac,
who sits on the 13-mem-
her health board, said
she voted for the mea-
sure because the evi-
dence about the health
consequences of second-
hand smoke is “ir-

But Isaac said that
as mayor, she would
have to weigh economic
concerns of bar and
restaurant owners.

At Monday’s meet-
ing, surgeons, doctors
and public health cru-
saders beseeched the
health board to make
Lexington the first Ken-
tucky city to ban smok-
ing in public buildings.

For too long, Ken-
tucky has held the “no-
torious distinction” of
leading the nation in
adult smoking. said
Todd Warnick, manager
for the tobacco-control
program at the county’s
health department.

Gene McLean, a lob-
byist hired by area
restaurants to fight the
ban, disputed the find-
ings of health profes-
sionals about the dan-
gers of second-hand

“There is no evi-
dence that conclusively
decides this issue," he

He also assured the
board that some kind of
"costly legal battle"
would ensue if it passed
a smoking ban.

Council action is
still the preferred
method to ban public
smoking, said Phil
Scott, attorney for the
health department, be-
cause it would face less
of a challenge in the

But Scott argued
that the health board
had every right to enact
its own rules. perhaps
by tying them into the
licensing of restaurants
and bars.


I now have a full-circle perspective and can relate better
to what families and patients may be going through.”

Quality of life: New treatments seek to improve both physical and psychological health

By Dereli Poore

A UK researcher is seeking
new. alternative ways to treat the
effects of cancer.

Kristi Graves was an under-
graduate at James Madison Uni-
versity when her mother was di-
agnosed with breast cancer.
Graves. a postdoctoral re-
searcher at the Department of
Behavioral Science of the UK
College of Medicine. explained

that her interest in the field
stems from personal hardship.

“When I was a sophomore at
James Madison University, my
mom was diagnosed with breast
cancer." Graves said. “I was very
impressed with how well she
took charge of her care and her
incredible spirit and coping abil-
ities. At that point, I decided I
wanted to learn more about how
patients and family members
cope with cancer."

According to a report pub-

lished by the American Cancer
Society. various forms of the dis-
ease will kill 556,000 people this

the disease and mitigate its ef-

10 UK police cruisers could

Lawsuit: National Association claims the Ford Crown Victoria
has faulty parts; UK police not planning to replace vehicles yet



Ten out of the UK Police De-
partment's 16 police cruisers are
Ford Crown Victoria Interceptors
r~ a car many police departments
are finding to be defective.

In a lawsuit filed Jan. 29. the
National Association of Police Or-
ganizations claimed Ford failed to
repair a defect that could cause its
cruisers to burst into flames when
hit from behind.

Ford has denied these claims.

UKPD is not part of this suit.
but its (‘rown Victorias have been

part of recalls in the past. said
Cmdr. Travis Manley. director of
UK's Communication and Infor-
mation Services.

UKPD was in the process of
phasing out the Crown Victoria.
but that effort has been put on hold
until a new police chief is found.

The department has been
without a chief since November:
when its former chief. Rebecca
Langston. became (‘ommissioner
of Public Safety for the Lexington-
Fayette Urban County Council. UK
hopes to have the new chief cho-
sen by the end of this semester.

“Right now we don't have

be defective

money to buy any new cars any-
way." Manley said.

If a defect is found, the cruis
ers will be repaired. Manley said.

The Crown Victoria is the
most common police car in Ameri-
ca. Of the 350.000 police cars. about
80 percent are Crown Victorias.

UKPD's other cruisers consist
of five Chevrolet Impalas and one
Chevrolet Suburban.

While most of the damage
done to UKPD’S cruisers is from
side collisions. Manley said that if
a defect is found. it will be a con-
cern. Cruisers usually accrue more
damage and are involved in more
accidents than other vehicles.

“Your risk factor definitely
goes up because of the nature of
our job." he said.



Radio station,
printing press
brace for cuts


As UK faces the prospect of state fund-
ing cuts. faculty worry about job security
and students fret over tuition hikes. But
programs on the periphery of UK could
also be hurt.

UK‘s public radio station. the Universi-
ty Extension and the University Press are
among those programs looking for alterna-
tive funding sources.

Roger Chesser. the general manager of
WUKY. said listener contributions would be
even more important to the station in case
of significant cuts in funding.

“Listeners can turn on a radio and nev-
er pay us anything. But we always hope our
listeners will see the need and contribute."
Chesser said.

The station already holds fundraisers
to supplement its funds from the university
and federal government, he said.

The station‘s total budget is $1.4 mil-
lion. Chesser said. One fundraiser. Heard It
Through the Grapevine, was held two
weeks ago. Chesser said raising money at
such events is becoming more difficult.

“Our expenses are rising. so our profits
are dropping," he said. Chesser said the sta-
tion will have another listener support drive
starting Feb. 18.

WUKY broadcasts National Public Ra-
dio and BBC programming, which Chesser
said is expensive. “Our most popular news
and cultural programs cost us a good chunk
of money." he said.

Chesser said he is already trying to
save money in case of cuts.

“If we have to make cuts, we want to do
it without our listeners hearing any differ-
ence." he said.

The dean of the University Extension
program said he hopes budget cuts won’t af-
fect students and available courses.

“We‘ll try not to impact class offerings,
but it may mean that employees are going
to have to double up on duties." said Philip

Greasley said University Extension op

Bucks for Brains may take cut

FRANKFORT —— A preliminary budget
proposal to be introduced Monday includes
a $120 million cut from Kentucky's Bucks
for Brains program, said committee Chair-
man Rep. Harry Moberly, D-Richmond. The
program pledges to match universities dol-
Iar-for-dollar for their research. Under the
spending proposal the only three areas not
expected to see budgetary cuts are elemen-
tary and secondary education, human ser-
vices and corrections, Moberly said. The
rest of state government would see about 2.6
percent worth of cuts to agencies this year.
House Democrats plan to discuss the idea
Tuesday afternoon, Moberly said. and the
plan should head for an appropriations pan-
el review on Wednesday. The hope is to have
House lawmakers vote on the measure Fri-
day, Moberly said.

and the other intelligence
chiefs offered little hope that
U.N. inspections would

ing Saddam is intent upon

Powell delivered the
news that the audiotape
would be played on the
Arab TV station al-Jazeera
even before the news outlet
said it had such a tape. “Be
patient. it‘s coming." Powell

And it did. About three
hours after Powell‘s revela-

said it had received the tape.
which it then broadcast.

U.S. counterterrorism
officials said the audio mes-
sage was probably a real
recording of bin Laden.

The administration
nonetheless wasted no time
in saying the tape was a key
element of President Bush‘s
argument that Saddam
must be disarmed soon, be
fore he hands weapons of
mass destruction to terror-
ist networks like al-Qaida.

“What the secretary has
alluded to this morning

concerns that we have about

Iraqis to carry out suicide
