Committee pushes for benefits

Moving ahead: If trustees pass resolution health benefits
will be available to domestic partners of faculty members

By Tracy Kershaw

To ensure UK attracts and retains the
best professors. one student government
committee thinks the University should ex»
tend health benefits to the partners of tin»
married faculty meme-rs.

At its Wednesday night meeting. the
Campus Affairs committee passed a resolu-
tion that requests that the Board of ’I‘rustees
“adopt and pass a policy that grants benefits
to all faculty members and their domestic
partners. regardless of sexual orientation."

UK‘s policy now extends benefits to the
spouses and children of faculty members.


Smothered and covered


The full Senate will vote next Wednes
day whether to send the resolution on to the

Sen. Brian Roth, who cosponsored the
bill with Sen. Emily Rigdon. said the policy
would make sure UK does not miss ottt on a
qualified professor.

If UK passes a policy that would give
benefits to the partners of homosexual facul
ty members. it would be a positive step in
erasing the state‘s backward image. he

“In order to get the best faculty. we
can‘t be behind the times." he said.

He knows getting the boai'd to make
such a liberal move in a state known for



conservative politics will not be easy.

Still. he thinks it is “(Is resixmsibility

Election: Some senators worry about
biases, prejudices tainting the campaigns
of those who voted against Jimmy Glenn

Bv Jennijgbsrtsee

Despite hopes that the upcoming Student Government
Association elections will heal the strained organization.
senators are already concerned by the recent actions of the
election committee chairman.

During the January trial of SGA President Jimmy
Glenn that ended in censure. (‘hairman of the Election
(‘ommittee Matthew Johnson said the Senate was biased

Some senators were uncomfortable with Johnson's be»
havior at Glenn's trial. At one point Johnson. whose tone
was described by Sen. Eric Stoner at a later meeting as
”threatening." stood in a chair to be heard. He also told the
freshmen senators at the trial that he got them elected.

Although he later apologized for his actions. senators
are still concerned that he might be prejudiced against
those running for reelection that voted against Glenn.

Some senators are also worried that Johnson may har-
bor biases. At a SGA Senate meeting later that month,
Johnson‘s capability as election chair was discussed.

“I don't take things personally. but when someone ac-
cuses me of being biased. I don‘t know ifl feel comfortable

with him." Stoner said at the Jan. 24 meeting.

Feeling icky: Pharmacists to answer questions

By Cara (2. Hood


With flu season well under
way and so many products on
drugstore shelves professing to
treat every symptom. you may
wonder how to decide which med-
ication is right for you. Knowing
the difference between a decon-
gestant and an expectorant could
be valuable to your recovery.

Why not turn your questions
over to the experts?

The UK (‘ollege of Pharmacy
is scheduled to host its lilth annu-
al call-in show. “Ask the Pharma»
cist." this Saturday.

A panel of college faculty and
community pharmacists will an
swer drug-related questions dur-
ing the show. said Dwaine Green.
assistant to the dean of student af
fairs at the (‘ollege of Pharmacy.
A moderator will relay some of
the questions and answers to the

Panelists will include: .loan
Fowler. Pharin. [).. assistant pro-
fessor in the 17K (‘ollege of Phar-
macy: Jackie Hamilton. Pharm.

It. Lexington community phar-
macist at Kroger: Deanna Finnell.
I’harm. I).. clinical pharmacist at
St. Joseph Hospital and Greg
Naseman. community pharmacist
at (‘VS in Louisville.

"Ask the Pharmacist" is a
popular community service pro
gram. averaging approxmiately
Silt) callers every year.

Green said questions cover a
broad range of topics froin how
drugs may interact with your
body to why a physician pro
scribed a specific drug.

The pharmacists will answer
questions about prescription
drugs. overtIie~counter medi-
cines and herbal and homeopath
ic remedies.

"There is no boundary. and
most are very good questions.”
Green said.

The show is increasingly pop~
ular among firstyear pharmacy
students who volunteer to handle
the influx of calls as a class pro-
ject. Three groups of eight stu»
dents will take turns answering
the phone Iiiies. (‘lass representa-
tive Jeremy Bowles said that

more than half of the students
who volunteered for the 24 posi-
tions had to be turned down.

Students will not answer
questions. but Bowles said it is
important for them to interact
with the community to learn
valuable patient counseling

“Pharmacists are more than
people who dispense pills. Now.
we're more into patient care."
Bowles said.

Green added that exposing
pharmacy students to the commu-
nity prepares them for the kinds
of questions they may be asked as
healthcare professionals.

"There is a public need for
this service." Green 531d. “It ap—
pears pharmacists are not readily
available or people are not taking
time to ask questions."


"Ask the Pharmacist" will broadcast
from 6-7pm. Saturday, Feb. 3 on

Other senators agreed
with Stoner.

“What he‘s done, I consid-
er unprofessional," Sen. Ali
Amoli said.

"That should not be some-
thing that the chairman ofthe
election board does.“

Amoli. who brought the
issue to the full Senate, ini~
tially called for Johnson‘s res-
ignation. Later. Amoli con-
ceded that time constraints

The controversy has left
tension among the senators.

“My biggest concern is
that there are two positions
that absolutely need to be un-
biased. One is the Supreme
Court. The other is the elec-
tion board." Amoli said.

Still, many have confi-
dence in Johnson‘s ability to
perform the task.

“I don't have any issue
with Matthew Johnson." said
Senate Chairman Edwin

“Even if he did have a
bias. I don‘t think he’d use his
position to influence the

SGA President Jimmy
Glenn agreed.

“Matthew is a very stand-
up guy," he said, “I stand 100
percent behind him."

Some critics of Johnson
acknowledge that his behav-
ior could probably be ex-

plained as an emotional out~
burst in a tense moment.

Freshman Sen. Robin
Bryant, who said she was
“particularly concerned"
about Johnson’s remarks to
the freshmen senators, said. “I
think he was honest in his
apology and realized he made
a mistake.”

Contrary to the opinions
of his colleagues, Johnson ar-
gues that the voting process
would not allow for any bias
to affect the outcome.

“There is no place where
one can be biased." he said.
“There are checks and double
checks to make sure that
everything‘s done correctly."

According to Johnson,
voting machines are sealed.
Each vote is recorded in ink
and the machine prints votes
and write-in votes.

To get the results. election
workers break a seal and take
the results to SGA Adviser
John Herbst. who places them
in a lockbox. The votes are
then counted twice by the
election board committee.

Johnson started working
with SGA elections last year.
He also orchestrated last fall‘s
election for freshman

For the upcoming elec~
tion. Johnson said he has al-
ready ordered voting ma-
chines. set polling places and
completed the preliminary
work for potential candidates.

Regardless of who runs
the next election. many are
hoping that it will cleanse the
SGA 0f the high tensions
surrounding relationships
between the executive and
legislative bodies.

“I think we‘ve had
enough drama," Bryant

The uso of color in oach

from Texas

Customs offiCIals
might have stopped a
iumbo item of
contraband at the
Texas-Mexico border,
if only they'd
checked the trunk.

Someone managed to
smuggle a three-ton
Asian elephant from
Texas into Mexico.
past a customs
checkpoint in
Matamoros, Mexico.

"i don't know how in the
world — well. they
could do anything -
look at the drugs
they get across,"
said Sandy Summers,
director for the
Upper Valley Humane
Society in
Edinburg. Texas.

Tom Bauer, spokesman
for the ”.5. fish oiiu‘
Wildlife Service,
confirmed Tuesday
that the elephant ~ a
member of a
threatened species -
was smuggled across
the border. It was
discovered at 3
Mexico City circus.

The owner of the Circus
told the Mexican
newspaper Reforma
that he'd bought the
elephant legally. But
the circus owner,
Guillermo Vazquez.
apparently got tired
of waiting for
approval of
necessary permits.
He said he paid a
smuggler $4,500 to
bring the
elephant across.

Vazquez said the
elephant was
transported In a
trailer pulled by a
pickup truck. Mexican
customs agents
waved it through on
April Fool's Day.
