Buildings safe despite accident, officials say

Staff Writer

UK Fire Chief Garry Beach said he was
surprised by the collapse of a staircase
that injured five students in the Reynolds
Building. Usually, annual inspections of
campus buildings would catch such prob-

“We try to get to each building on an
annual basis." Beach said. All buildings
are inspected regularly, but some smaller
buildings do not get checked as often as
the larger ones, he said.

Five UK students received minor
injuries after a staircase fell in the
Reynolds Building 1 at 67? S. Broadway on
Feb. 7. The collapse occurred shortly after
an art performance presented to a class
with the bottom of the stairs used as a

The students were released after being
treated for minor injuries

Edwin Hollan, who suffered ankle
injuries due to the fall, said he plans to re-
turn to classes this week. “Missing over a
week of classes hurts but my instructors

have been very cooperative and under-
standing," said Hollan, a fine arts senior.

The injured students have been con-
tacted by John Hunt, a university insur-
ance expert for UK, and their medical bills
will be forwarded to the Board of Claims
in Frankfort. A ruling will then be made to
reimburse the students for their hospital
bills and any other costs they have due to
the accident, said Jack Blanton. vice chan-
cellor for administration. “We're relative-
ly sure all bills will be paid.“

The collapsed staircase was replaced
within days of its fall and other staircases

in the Reynolds Building were inspected
and braces are being added. Beach said.
"The physical plant reinspected them
tstaircasest, and said they were in good
shape." he said.

With more than 200 buildings, he said,
there are bound to be some deficiencies.

“We‘re always in the process of updating
buildings. This is why we have all of the
renovations going on all the time.“ Beach

“There‘s no way any of us could tell the
stairs in the Reynolds Building weren't
safe.“ Blanton said "We deeply regret


Heavy rain

Associated Press

Heavy rains pounded Kentucky for
the fourth straight day yesterday,
prompting Gov. Wallace G. Wilkinson to
declare a state of emergency.

Wilkinson issued the order and called
for the National Guard to aid in evacua-
tions as the Kentucky River, which
flows through the central part of the
state, hit flood stage and continued to
rise at nearly a foot an hour.

Several hundred people were reported
evacuated from their homes in counties
across the state Wednesday, mainly in
western and central Kentucky.

Officials said it was impossible to
give an exact figure on evacuations,
since many people left home on their
own. And they predicted the number
would increase during the night.

The rain began Sunday and has
dumped up to 9 inches of water on por-
tions of western Kentucky, forcing road
and school closings throughout the

Authorities say the stormy weather
was responsible for at least three
deaths, including one woman who
drowned Tuesday in the backwaters of
the Ohio River in western Kentucky.

Marjorie T‘eeters, 33, of Wickliffe,
drowned near Barlow, while trying to
wade from a standed four—wheel drive
vehicle to a nearby cabin, according to
the Ballard County Sheriff's Depart-

Sheriff Herb Vance said a companion,
Brad Casey, also of Wickliffe, is miss-
ing and presumed drowned.

Two Kentucky residents died Monday
on a rain-slick road in Henderson.

Those counties hardest hit by the rain
were located in a line from Madison-
ville, in western Kentucky. to just south
of Louisville on the Ohio River, the
Weather Service said.

Only the extreme southeastern por—
tion of the state — including Hazard,
Middlesboro and Pikeville — have es»
caped the brunt of the storm.

The weather service was calling for
up to 2 more inches in some parts of the
state before the rain began to taper off
on Thursday.

in Frankfort. the Kentucky River had
reached 35.6 feet — 4.6 feet above flood
stage -— by Wednesday afternoon, state
officials said.

The city was hit hard by floods in 1978
and 1984.

in Frankfort Wednesday by helicopter
and also flew over Dix Dam, which

Soviet Union ends nine-year Afghan struggle

Associated Press

TERMEZ, U.S.S.R. — The Soviet Union
ended its costly nine-year intervention in
Afghanistan yesterday when the last
soldier — the commander of the Red Army
contingent walked across a border
bridge clutching flowers.

“I wasn‘t looking back,“ said Lt. Gen.
Boris Gromov after leaving Afghan soil
where 15,000 Soviets died in a civil war
that still rages on.

The pullout through this border town ~
where many of the 115,000 Soviet troops
had entered Afghanistan closed a
painful chapter in Soviet history that Mik-
hail S. Gorbachev once called a “bleeding

But it did little to silence the critics who
said the Kremlin's December 1979 inter-
vention to aid a Marxist government
against U.S.-backed Moslem guerrillas
was a costly mistake.

About 200 cheering, windburned soldiers

clutched automatic rifles as they rode
mud-spattered armored personnel carriers
across the Friendship bridge over the Amu
Darya River on Wednesday —-— the UN.-
mediated deadline for all Soviets to be out
of Afghanistan.

Gromov. the 45-year-old commander of
the Soviet contingent in Afghanistan. rode
the last armored personnel carrier off
Afghan soil.

His vehicle stopped halfway across the
bridge linking Termez with the Afghan
town of Khairaton. and his 14~year-old son,
Maxim, ran out. He gave his father a
bouquet of carnations and they walked
arm-inearm the final yards to Soviet soil.

At the border, the sunburned general
appeared to be near tears when he said his
thoughts were for his countrymen who
served or died in Afghanistan.

“I thought about those who were left be-
hind, but m0st importantly about those
who have come home,“ said Gromov, who
took command in Afghanistan in 1984 on
his third to '. of duty there.

Lt. Col. Igor Azareiiok of the Soviet De-
fense Ministry said Gromov's headquare
ters group was the last to leave. and the
official news agency Tass said other troops
crossed the border Wednesday at Kushka.

In Afghanistan. tens of thousands of
guerrillas reportedly were advancing on
the capital, Kabul and other major cities.

The Afghan government Wednesday
night expressed its appreciation to the So-
viet Union for its assistance. But it also
said relations between the two should de-
velop on the basis of non—interference in
each other's internal affairs.

The Kremlin, in a statement carried by
Tass, thanked the Soviet soldiers for
“fulfilling your patriotic and international-
ist duty.“ But the Communist Party daily
Pravda, state-run TV and commentators
questioned whether the Kremlin was
correct in sending troops into Afghanistan
in the first place.

said senior Sgt. Asgat Husayinov. 32 He

you fear nothing. except maybe yourself. '

The Kremlin has acknowledged that
15.000 Soviet soldiers were killed and more
than 35.000 wounded in Afghanistan, It sent
the troops in a year after a Marxist coup
touched off a civil war.

High-ranking Soviets have said the late
President Leonid Brezhnev and a handful
of his closest associates decided to inter-
vene because the civil war threatened the
Soviet I'nion

“It is possible to doubt the Brezhnev
leadership's evaluation of the level of mili-
tary threat," Pravda said Wednesday.
“Such vitally important decisions as the
use of troops cannot be decided secretly by
a small circle of people. without the sane
tion of the parliament."

According to Blanton. the Reynolds
Building along with all other buildings on
campus have a building operator and on
top of that they are regularly inspected by
the statefire marshal.

"In the last two weeks it has been the
most inspected building at UK." he said

Although the building still has some
problems. the stairs are repaired and it
achieves a level of safety, he said

“We don't put people in buildings that
we think are unsafe." Blanton said

After continual and disturbing
psychological abuse from their

and compassion, resulting in an
incestuous relationship.

The Lutton sisters continue
their sexual kinship while still
receiving emotional pressure
from Madame Danzard and her

reached where the sisters can
no longer endure the abuse. The

the sisters successfully plot and
