New digs: Fraternity
relocates to satisfy
UK's greenspace plan

By Amber Ashby


Members of UK's Sigma
Chi social fraternity unpacked
old memories with their per-
sonal belongings as they moved
into their new $2.4 million
house Saturday.

“This is a great house but
we'll miss the old one." said
Joseph Ireland. an economics
sophomore. “The place had
character and a lot of tradi-

Jimmy Takitch. a finance
junior and president of the
chapter. agreed. “We're lucky
to live in a brand new house.
but I'm going to miss how per-
sonalized the old house was.
Things went Lip over time
there. and it‘ll take awhile to
add all that here."

Other Sigma Chi members
said they would miss their old
location on the corner of Wood
land and Hilltop avenues.

“I‘ll miss sitting on the
front porch watching all the
cars and people go by." said
Mike Munafo. a business sophol
more. “That was our hang-out

On the corner of Columbia
and Pennsylvania avenues. the
new house is in Greek Park. an
area that will house new Greek
dwellings. said Brian Gathy. di-
rector of finance for campus
and auxiliary services.

Greek Park is bordered by
Woodland. Columbia and Eu
clid avenues and Rose Street.

Gathy said the university
shouldered the funding for the
new Sigma Chi house because
the other house will eventually
be torn down. Gathy said the
old house is located on land
that UK administrators have
designated as greenspace. UK
officials want to clear this land.
which surrounds the William
T. Young Library. in the next
several years.

“This wasn't a case where
they wanted a new house and
we offered to pay for it." said
Gathy. “Instead. we mandated
and initiated the move because
we want the library lot cleared.

5 into the new Sigma Chi house on Saturday. The new house has

28 suites that accommodate tour occupants. Each suite has a bathroom and multiple phone lines.

and therefore. we have an oblig-
ation to pay for it."

Though they‘ll miss many
features of the old house. the
Sigma Chi members can't help
but feel pleased by all the
amenities of their new home.

In addition to a chapter
room. kitchen. living room and
back patio. the house includes
28 suites that accommodate
four occupants. Each room has
a bathroom and multiple phone
lines so that each person can
have their own Internet access.

Members \velt‘oiile these
changes as alternatives to the
community bathrooms and lim-
ited wiring in the old house,

"My shower has a bench in
it. and that can‘t be beat." Mu-
nafo said. He also added that
the ethernet system of the new
house is a nice addition.

Gathy said the fraternity
and its alumni will pay the
house‘s operating costs.

Ken Clevidence. associate
vice-president for auyiliary and
campus services. said the house

also has an apartment where
the house mother will live. The
house has no cook. so UK Food
Services will cater meals.

While it might take time to
make the new place home. the
members are ready to make
new memories and christen the
house with their spirit.

"It‘s pretty exciting to
think that we're the last mem-
bers in the old house and the
first people here." Ireland said.
"We‘ll be the first to scratch our
names on the walls."

Confusion: Eastern tent caterpillars remain
primary suspect in last year's losses

By Curtis Tate


Equine researchers are
still working to pinpoint the
cause of last year's unusually
high number of foal death; an
epidemic which could cost
Kentucky's thoroughbred in
dustry 3'50 million.

Equine epidemiologist
David Powell said resmrchen

Researchers will take
blood samples from mares.
test feed. soil and grass sam
ples for toxic compounds. and
keep a close watch on eastern
tent caterpillars.

Powell said several factors
are suspected of contributing
to Mare Reproductive Loss
Syndrome; only one cause has
been ruled out.

“We are happy to elimi
nate infectious or contagious
disease." Powell said that re
search continues to focus on
the eastern tent‘caterpillar.
which appeared in large num
bers last spring, The caterpil-
lar feeds on the leaves of the
black cherry tree. a cyanide

Though cyanide may have
found its way onto horse pas
tures. Powell said researchers
have established no direct link
between the caterpillars and
foal deaths

He said that abnormal
weather last spring includ
ing a series of frosts. low rain-
fall and higher than normal
temperatures may have
played a role


Zoo's cheetahs roar into Wi

Too many people, not enough seats: Event
draws overflow crowd, prompts second show

By Steve lvey
éfifi warren

More than 1.100 people
came to UK Saturday to see a
cheetah. an ocelot and several
other cats in the Memorial Hall

The animals were here for
(‘at Scratch Fever 2002. an
event presented by the Cincinv
nati Zoo‘s Cat Ambassador Pro
gram. The event was sponsored
by several of UK's progressive

David Hutchinson. presr
dent of Green Thumb and mar-
keting junior. said he expected
300 to 500 people. but Memorial
Hall was filled to its BOO-seat ca


pacity. and about 300 people
were left waiting outside.

“I (was) simply amazed by
the crowd." he said.

The Cat Ambassadors per
formed an impromptu second
Show for those who were no
able to get seats for the first.
While the (‘at Ambassadors
presented various cats during
the show. the focus was on rais-
ing funds and awareness for
cheetah conservation

Elissa Knights. director of
the Cat Ambassador Program.
said humans must use their
greatest adaptations their
minds to further conserva
tion efforts.

“Cooperation and learning
to live with the animals is the
solution." she said

Hutchinson said Green
Thumb collected more than
$300 from individual and orga-
nizational donations for the An-
gel F‘und. an effort to promote
cheetah conservation in Africa.

Lindsey Clouse. president
of the Society for the Preven-
tion of Cruelty to Animals. said
the event helped raise aware-
ness about endangered species.

"Seeing a cheetah or an
ocelot up close and personal
and having a chance to experi
ence their beauty and intelli-
gence firsthand goes a long way
toward encouraging people to
participate in conservation."
she said.

Cheryl Edge. a natural re-
source and conservation man
agement senior, said she was


glad to see the event geared to-
ward conservation.

“It‘s important that every-
one understand why many
speCies are going extinct at un«
precedented rates." she said.
“Hopefully they'll become re-
sponsible adults and continue
conservation efforts."

Powell said the economic
impacts of MRLS might not be
felt for two or three years. but
the feed inrlustry. horse care
taken and veterinarians will
all be affected

“As time progresses. the
problem's st‘l‘ltllISnPSS will be
come apparent.” he said.

Scott Smith. dean of the
[7K (‘ollege ot ..\griculture.
said research teams in the col
legc have never seen such a
large concentration of foal
deaths before

“It‘s been a big thing for
us." he said. "We've allocated
lots of time and resources."

Smith said several depart
ments in the college includ
ing veterinary science. animal
science. agronomy and agri-
cultural engineering collab-
orate on causal studies and
monitoring area horse farms.

Frank Taylor. manager of
Taylor Made Farm in .Ies.
samine t‘ounty. said his farm
was selected for monitoring.

Even though he said he
doesn't think MRIS will occur
on a large scale this year. Tayr
lor is taking precautions. He
said he plans to muzzle his
mares in April to keep them
from grazing pastures.

L'K estimates that about
20 percent of Kentucky's 2002
foal crop was lost to MRLS
Taylor said his losses may be
as high as 30 percent

Taylor said the horse in
dustry Wlll take five to seven
years to recover from the ef-
fects of MRLS But he said sur-
viving foals will become more
valuable as supplies decrease

"It might be a good thing
in some sense." he said.

Congress begins Enron inquiries

W.»\SIII.\'(3’I‘()N The first hard look by
congress at what's behind the Enron Corp. col-
lapse left lawmakers certain of only one thing:
Thousands of documents were destroyed by the
energy company’s blue-ribbon accounting firm.
But who ordered the shredding? What was on the
papers? Was someone trying to stifle a govern-
ment investigation? And did Arthur Andersen
LLI’s lucrative consulting business influence its
actions as Enron's accountant'.’ None of these
questions were answered after a House investiga~
tions subcommittee concluded its first public
hearing Thursday into the largest and perhaps
most devastating bankruptcy in history. With 11
congressional committees and subcommittees ca-
ger to probe elements of the Enron debacle and
its far-reaching fallout. this is only the begin
ning. For the time being the focus is on paper
shredding and what may turn into one of the na-
tion's biggest financial scandals.

TEL AVIV. Israel A suicide bomber struck
a pedestrian mall in a crowded Tel Aviv shop»
ping area Friday. killing himself and wounding
24 bystanders in the explosion. including two
who were in serious condition. There was no im-

an assailant detonated explosives strapped to his

About two dozen US congressmen are de~

To drop or
not to drop

Not all of us are the
type of students
that can take 18
credit hours a
semester and
actually finish
them. There are
some students
who like to pad
their schedules
and then
eliminate a class
or two.

As you tap the
bottom of the
keg, you find
those that blow
off all but one
class in hopes of
finding their true
"nirvana." The
tough part of this
ordeal, besides
the darn
automated phone
system, is
knowing which
classes to keep
and which to kick
to the curb. This
is where I advise
you about your
class schedule
and you pretend
to laugh, 0K?

SAB offers outlets
for bored students

What's a student to do on campus?

To help students answer that question. the Student Activities
Board has developed several programs for students to participate in.

In the past, UK has entertained guests such as the bands Nine
Days and Vertical Horizon. as well as speaker Keith Boykin. SAB
has also premiered numerous movies in addition to sponsoring ac-
tivities such as the beginning-of-the-year Student Spectacular and
Poetrypalooza. SAB also organizes Homecoming week. and this year
they added the Gator and Cardinal Roasts to boost school spirit.

This April. SAB will bring film directors John Singleton (Baby
Boy) and Kevin Smith (Clerks and Chasing Amy) to campus in con-
junction with the Split Screen Film Festival.

Along with the free movie screenings. concerts and educational
speakers. SAB is also adding comedy to their repertoire.

Beginning in February. SAB will sponsor a free on-campus come—
dy show called “The Comedy Caravan.“ This program will bring na-
tionally recognized comedy acts to campus for a full—length comedy
show. These comedians who are coming to campus have performed
in the club venue as well as on TV.

With SAB, students have opportunities to experience things on
campus. a benefit for those who don't have cars or can‘t or don‘t
want to go to the bars.

SAB is an organization for students and is run by students, and it
is one in which anyone can be involved. And SAB invites students to
submit ideas about future programs, so please do.

Kudos to SAB for bringing all the life they can to campus. With a
mix of education, entertainment and athletics. SAB has proved that
they are trying to appeal to a vast and diverse audience.

In a school of more than? :3. 000 students. that s not an easy task.

They ye handled it admirably.

A speech that
won't be made

With the State of the Union address tomorrow night. I
am certain I will find myself. at one point or another. lean-
ing over in my chair saying, “That seventh slice of pizza is-
n‘t sitting well.“ I will also repeatedly ask, “Why don't you
say this?"

The problem lies in that not only do 1 want politicians
to say what they think. which would be a refreshing
change. but in that I also want them to say what I think.

Regardless. the most important topic Tuesday night will
not be the war on terrorism. although it will probably re-
ceive the most airtime. No. the shadow hanging over Capi-
tol Hill will be the economy and the uncertainty that will
plague us through the next year or more.

President Bush will speak of the
need for a bipartisan incentive
package and of the need to encour-
age growth in the
