A week after severe thunder-
storms caused localized flood-
ing on campus. UK officials
still are cleaning up water-
soaked basements and assessing
property damage that could sur-
pass $500,000.

”This ranks with a catas-
trophe." said John W. Hunt,
UK’s risk manager. “I would
say we‘ve got over a half mil-
lion dollars in damage, and I
mean over a half million — I
didn‘t put a maximum limit on

Although no one was injured
on campus, the Thursday eve-
ning storm brought 65 mph
winds and dumped 4 1/2 inches
of rain on Lexington, turning
parts of Limestone Street into a
river and flooding more than 35
UK buildings.

Most buildings sustained only
minor damage to carpets and
moldings, but a $30,000 trans-
former in Donovan Hall was
mined when it became partially
submerged by the flood, said
Jack Blanton. vice chancellor
for administration.

At Lexington Commmity
College, runoff from a construc-
tion site spewed layers of mud
into the basement of the Malo-
ney Building and damaged sev-

en new computers.

“It looks like a disaster area,“
said Ben Carr, chancellor for the
Community College System.

Sewer drains backed up across
campus, causing torrents of wa~
ter forceful enough to cave in a
steel door in the sub-basement
of the W.D. Funkhouser Build-
ing, Blanton said.

Some of the worst damage oc-
curred in the Central Heating
Plant on Upper Street, where
rain turned the roadway into a 5-
foot deep swimming pool.

Jack Applegate, director of the
Lexington Campus Physical
Plant Division, said pump mo-
tors and an emergency generator
were completely underwater and
now have to be repaired.

Several vehicles parked be-
hind the plant also were com-
pletely submerged, and an
$80,000 mobile dental clinic
was damaged at the Albert B.
Chandler Medical Center.

At Memorial Coliseum, water
flooded into basketball coach
Rick Pitino‘s office through an
air vent in the ceiling. The
wooden floor of the basketball
court also was covered with wa-
ter, and officials aren‘t sure it
can be salvaged.

“It‘s curled around the edges,
so we'll probably let it dry and
try to sand it.“ Applegate said.

Burglars broke into a safe a

The burglars took $50 and pos-

Colleges take budget cuts


By Brant Welch
Staff Writer


Because of sharply rising at-
tendance and recent budget re-
ductions, students in UK‘s Com-
munity College System may find
it harder to take the classes they

Ben Carr, chancellor of the
Community College System, said
UK‘s 14 community colleges
will be forced to turn away stu-
dents when classes become full
because there is no money to hire
additional faculty.

“The budget cuts will stifle our
growth," Carr said. “With new
facilities and staff, we could have
a 10 to 12 percent increase in en-
rollment this fall. Now, it looks
as if we will only have a 5 to 6
percent increase, and it’s all we
can handle without the walls cav-
ing in.

“I don’t see any relief for at
least two years, and, even then, I
don’t foresee large amounts of
money for education."

The Community College Sys-
tem cut $3.3 million from it‘s
1991-92 operating budget after
the state reduced it‘s appropria-
tion to UK last fall.

Although the system was
spared from further cuts in its
1992-93 budget, the colleges are
hard-pressed even to pay for of-
fice supplies.

“The sad thing is that the bud-
get cuts have brought us down to
the bare bones," said Jerry Grein-
er, dean of students at Maysville
Community College. “It may
sound funny but sometimes we
don‘t have enough money for
stamps or typing paper."

Bob Park, dean of students at
Henderson Community College,
said the school may have to in-
crease class sizes to accommodate
more students.

“We may have to raise the num-
ber of people we have in each
class. It may also mean students
will have to take classes at times
they may not desire, but the bud-
get cuts will eventually catch up
to us," he said. “Right now, we
are trying to allocate our resourc-

Another problem the budget
cuts may pose is that more selec-
tive admissions policies may be
implemented by the community
colleges, said Larry Miller, dean
of students at Owensboro Com-
munity College.

Although the community col-

leges are reeling from budget
cuts, there are several expansion
projects underway. The money
for the projects was allocated by
the state before the budget cuts
were announced in December.

Owensboro Community Col-
lege has two new buildings under
construction. Owensboro is
building a Campus Center, which
will include dining facilities (the
first on its campus), lounges, a
counseling center and an art gal-

A new classroom building also
is under construction.

Henderson also has two new
buildings in the works: a Science
Technology Building and a Civic

Lexington Community College
is in the process of building what
is currently being called the Aca-
demic and Technical Building, to
provide more classroom space.

Tuition has increased $10 per
semester at each of the communi-
ty colleges, with the exception of
LCC. Tuition will remain at cur-
rent levels at LCC, but a new
technology fee will raise the cost
of attending the college by $4 per
credit hour. The fee will be used
to expand computer facilities.

Additional $30,000
allocated to SGA


By Jay Phillips
Contributing Writer


UK‘s Student Government
Association has been given a
$30,000 injection could trans-
late into better student servic-
es, SGA President Pete No-
vember said.

The new revenue is included
in a $143,000 interim budget
passed by the SGA intean
Senate June 10. The budget re-
flects a 21 percent increase
over last year‘s figure because
of a hike in student fees that
was approved by the UK
Board of Tmstees in May.

Almost all of the increase
was given to the SGA Senate,
which next year will have a
budget of $67,000. The re—
mainder of $143,000 will fund
SGA‘s executive branch and
programs like the Student Es-
cort Service.

The full impact of the addi—
tional $30,000 won‘t be felt
until the senate begins allocat-
ing it for specific projects in

the fall.

“My hope is they‘ll use the
extra money to help some stu-
dent organizations that were
hurt by the budget cut," No-
vember said.

SGA‘s budget increase
comes at a time when UK is
slashing $11.5 million from it‘s
1992-93 operating budget be-
cause of a reduction in state ap-
propriations. UK also cut $15.2
million in December.

The reductions have hit eve-
ry sector of UK, and many stu—
dent programs. like the march-
ing band, are feeling its effects.

November said the interim
senate passed a bill June 10 au-
thorizing SGA to buy new
flags for the band‘s color
guard. SGA also is spending
$3,500 to sponsor in part the
Student Center Spectacular, an
orientation program for new
students. Previously, the spec-
tacular has been sponsored by
the Dean of Students‘ Office
but budget cuts made that im-
possible this year, November

Newman Center hit
by recent flooding

When Pigs
Have Wings


Amid the destruction that
swept UK's campus last Thurs-
day after severe thunderstorms
dumped 4 1/2 inches of rain on
Lexington, a community spirit
could be found at UK‘s Catho-
lic Newman Center.

“The spirit has just been tre—
mendous," said Father Dan
Noll, pastor and ten-year resi-
dent at the center, located at
320 Rose Lane.

The water level reached far
beyond the height of the metal
chairs that fill the auditorium-
like church, destroying over a
million dollars in renovations
that were completed last Sep-

“The worst has been the
heartbreak of all the people‘s
work and pride in remodelling
the facility and seeing that all
swept away in 45 minutes, but
it took about 45 minutes for all
the people to love and work
and hope and to comeback in
and start over again — that‘s
the best of it," Noll said.

Lexington about about a

month's worth of rain in a
24-hour period.

Noll said he was in the base-
ment of the Newman Center
when it began to rain.

“Water began seeping in the
walls and Sister Ellen (Kehoe)
started yelling about water
coming in under the doors up-
stairs," he said.

The next thing they knew,
the building and the street out-
side were flooded. Cars were
immersed in water. Noll said
some students floating along
on a raft stopped to help move
what they could to higher

N011 and Kehoe lost their
cars in the flood and so did a
man who left his unattended in
the parking lot to help inside.

The good news for Noll and
his congregation is that the
flood and ground water insu-
ranoe should pay for all of the
damages. .

“The official estimate is as
much to replace as it was to do
the original renovations,“ said
Tim Enoch, the Newman Cen-
ter‘s business manager.

“I’m hoping it won’t cost as
much, and we‘re hoping our

The rain also forced UK’s Stu-

much liability the University will

’Patriot Games’
a flimsy fantasy


By John Dyer Fort
Arts Editor


“Patriot Games" draws us
in, only to disappoint. Just
when the film promises to be a
fresh, “existential" spy thriller
with an intelligent here, the
whole thing disappears behind
a Hollywood smoke screen.

Harrison Ford is Jack Ryan,
a retired CIA analyst turned
history professor. Ryan wants
to be Joe Citizen — if he can
live down his CIA past. 002-
ing humble self-assurance,
Ryan accepts his lot in life like
a reluctant little boy.

While visiting London with
his wife (Anne Archer) and
daughter, Ryan unwittingly
draws the wrath of the Irish.
Stumbling onto an Irish terror-
ist plot, he single-handedly
body slams, disarrns, shoots
and kills one Irish terrorist and
prevents the kidnapping of
British royal family members.

The Irish promptly forget
their suffocating English yoke
and pursue Ryan in America.
They stalk him like rabid hell
hounds, shooting at children.
on streets and on the Inter-
state, nearly killing Ryan’s
wife and daughter.

Ford usually excels as the
self-mocking, reluctant hero.
This, along with his knack for
comedy, made Hans Solo and
Indiana Jones come alive.

But in “Patriot Games,"
Ford goes from reluctance to
relentlessness in a transforma-
tion more fitting for Rambo.

Archer is the model horne-

maker/mother/career woman
-— a surgeon who performs mi-
crosurgery before rushing off
to pick the kid up from school.

Ryan goes back to work for
the CIA, a good 01‘ American
company that cares for its em-
ployees and their families. The
Feds move heaven and earth to
find the Irish: Spy satellite fly-
bys are rerouted, a covert Ma-
rine operation is dispatched for
a late night kill-run in North
Africa, and all the CIA‘s high-
priced techno-toys are offered
him. Now that‘s a heck of a
benefits package.

Nonetheless, the terrorists
manage to sneak back for an-
other go at Ryan and his fami-

We know by now what we
feared all along: Another film
has sought the safety of formu-
laic, cathartic American wet
dreams (for Jungians. the
nighttime speed boat chase on
a stormy ocean is a must-see).
The end is all too predictable.

As an audience, not only are
we asked to believe in delu-
sions of moral, physical and in-
tellectual American superiori-
ty. we are to cheer about them.

“Patriot Games” is all fi-
nesse, big bucks and big stars.
There are some exciting mo-
ments, but in the end we are
unsatisfied. It's just another
Hollywood “kick foreign butt"
fantasy for closet heroes.

"Patriot Games, " rated R. is
showing at Lexington Green,
Lexington Mall and North
Park cinemas.

“It is the policy of the Universi-
ty of Kentucky Hospital that all
employees will use Universal Pre-
cautions with all patients, and that
additional precautions, other than
use of a private room. will not be
employed for AIDS patients. UK
Hospital follows the CDC guide
lines for the care of patients with
communicable diseases.

“It is also the policy of the UK
Hospital that HIV positive em-
ployees should report their condi-
tion to their supervisor or to Infec—
tion Control."

Universal Precautions include
the use of sterile gloves, protective
barriers and care in the use and
disposal of needles and other
sharp objects.

A related area requires appli-
cants seeking employment in areas
that deal with blood and body
fluids to meet all the occupational
requirements as specified in their
job descriptions and to avoid caus-
ing verbal or physical disruptions
in the work environment.

The last area states that routine
testing of University employees
will not take place.


Also in 1988, UK Hospital offi-
cials developed a hospital policy
that paralleled Roselle‘s AIDS
committee guidelines and the
CDC recommendations.

The I l/2-page policy requires
compliance with recommendations
by the CDC and the American
Hospital Association when using
Universal Precautions.

“The universal blood and body
fluid precautions must be taken by
healthcare workers to protect
themselves from potential infec-
tions," the policy states.

The hospital policy also touches
on the posting of Universal Pre-
cautions and monitoring of em-
ployee compliance with those pre-

A Medical Centerwide policy
detailing precaution instructions
and specific areas of interest —
AIDS education, mandatory test-
ing and the sensitive ethical and
legal issues involved — was not
researched or implemented, and
the 1988 policies have remained in
effect for four years.

“This is not a one-time thing."
Nash said of the current commit-
tee. “We're going to have to have
an ongoing group because things
keep changing."

In the four years since Roselle‘s
AIDS policy committee developed
UK's guidelines, there have been
rapid changes in the bealthcare en-
viromnent, federal guidelines and
knowledge about the disease and
the human immunodeficiency vi-
I'US — HIV — that causes AIDS.

Last summer the CDC updated
its AIDS guidelines for healthcare
workers — the first revision since

Currently, those guidelines are
under revision again, said CDC
spokesman Tom Skinner.

With so many changes in AIDS
statistics and guidelines, Nash, who
was named vice chancellor last
spring, said, she immediately rec-
ognized the need for an AIDS poli-
cy and began forming a committee
in March.


The University of Cincinnati be-
gan similar policy-changing proce-
dures last summer following a
1990 Florida incident that is the
