lost friend

By Alison Kight

[iterative Editor

To most of UK's 24,000 students, Jana Oliver is
just a face in the newspapers and on television.

She is the subject of much publicity, and her
death from mengingococcal sepsis, a form of menin-
gitis, has perhaps scared more than saddened many.

But to many, like her Sigma Kappa social sorority
sisters and her friends in Blanding Tower and on
South Campus,_lana was a vibrant girl with all of the
promise life can give.

“In everything I read or saw on TV, it seems like
she was more ofa bacteria than a person," said her
friendjason Mabry, an agronomy freshman, “I got
really pissed off."

Oliver’s friend Nancy Jeffries, a communication
freshman, said some people had been wary around
her when they found out about her close relation—
ship with Oliver.

During an intramural basketball game, the refer-
ee noticed she was shaky, and when he found out
she had taken rifampin, an antibiotic to combat
meningitis, he backed away frotn her.

“He was like, ‘don't get me sick,” she said. “It
really bothered me."

Her friends don't remember Oliver as a disease
that alarmed campus, but for other things.

They remember her as the little girl who “could
curl up into the tiniest ball I’ve ever seen,” said
friend Sarah Sallee, an undeclared freshman.

Or the tiny blond who was crazy for Mountain
Dew Big Slams and Caramello candy bars.

The girl who always wanted to order Chinese
food, at any time of the night or day, and knew the
names of “practically every restaurant in Lexing—
ton,"]effries said.

And the girl who loved to dance.

“She could dance better than anyone else I've
ever seen," said her friend Nick West, an unde-
clared freshman. “That girl really knew how to

West described Oliver as “made out of porce-

“She looked like she was about to break,” he said.
“But once at the Commons, she walked up to me,
and this little girl puts a death grip on me. I couldn‘t
breathe, but she said she just wanted to give me a

Mahry said he was plannin to teach Oliver how
to rock climb this semester before she got sick.

“I took her to Red River Gorge once, and she did
reall ' well," he said. “Out of anybody I've ever
taught, she had lots of natural talent. She was so

Perhaps the nitnbleness can be attributed to
Oliver’s dancing. She played the part of Clara in
“The Nutcracker" in the Louisville Ballet when she
was younger, and her ballet director spoke at her

In the future, every girl who wins the role of
Clara will also be the recipient of the jana Oliver

A self-described “crazy driver,” Oliver loved to
scare her friends while they rode around in her royal
blue Mazda Miata.

“She derived pleasure out of frighteninr me,"
said her friend Andy Becherer, an undeclare( fresh-
man who knew Oliver while she was a student at
Sacred Heart Academy in Louisville and also hung
out' with her at school.

Many of her friends said they felt better now that
the funeral was over and they got a chance to talk to
Oliver’s family.

“I was really de )ressed until I talked to her moth—
er,” Sallee said. “She was just reat through every-
thing. After the funeral, I couldgfinally sleep.”

Med Center death leaves questions

By Brenna Reilly
Nam Editor

and Jeff Vinson
Campus Editor

Questions still surround the death of a 27-year—
old doctor who died while on-call at the UK Chan—
dler Medical Center.

Rosendo Francisco Borres, 27, a first-year resiv
dent in anesthesiology, died jan. 19 while on duty at
the UK Medical Center emergency room after
inhaling the anesthetic isoflurane.

UK Police Chief \V.H. McComas said Borres
a )parently poured the anesthetic isoflurane into a
cloth to enhance his ability to o to slee .

McComas said Borres proEably rolliad over and
inhaled the isoflurane. Investigators found a bottle
of isoflurane and a cloth in the room with Borres,
McComas said. UK Police investigated the death
with the Coroner‘s office.

A wire service had reported that the death was
not investigated by police until 24 hours later. The
coroner's office investigated the death, said Mary
Margaret Colliver, Medical Center spokeswoman.

She said that in cases where both suicide and
criminal activity are ruled out as the cause of death.
the coroner's investigation is sufficient.

However, (Iolliver added that it was “an over
sight on (the Medical Center's) part not to call" the
UK Police.

According to the coroner's report, Borrcs‘ the
death was caused by the blockage of the mouth and
nose against a pillow while lying prone to sedation
and by inhaling the anesthetic agent, isoflurane in
liquid form.

“Isoflurane is an extremely common general
anesthetic agent used throughout the country
throughout the world, actually," said Dr. \Villiani
\Vitt, chairman of the UK Department of Anesthe—

Vl'itt said that the agent is available in the operat
ing rooms, in—patient and out—patient, and in the
labor and delivery suites.

“The only medical purpose for it is as a general
anesthetic," he said.

Borres was found unresponsive by a fellow doctor
and was taken to the emergency room, where he w as
pronounced dead at 7:40 a.m.

The UK Young Democrats is a new organization
on cam us which allows students to get involved in

“Our main goal is to educate the students of the
political process and get them involved at an early
age so they will be involved throughout their life,”
said Kevin Kidd, co-founder of Young Democrats.
“Hopefully, we can be an example to the whole
political party system.”
