banner was displayed last night in

just glad she could be there.

piled into a van in llarlan (Io. on
a direct route to the team wel-

stuffed to the maximum with ran—

sitting in every available spot,
including Charity \Vilkerson tak—

“It was so much adrenaline,"
Steele said. “Everyone was shout—

The group got in line at 1 ant.
and were the fourth group there.
The result: front row seats for
Steele's first-ever visit to Rtipp.

“It’s so big," she said, looking
around at the ierseys hung over-
head. “l'm just so amazed."

The Cats piled out ofthe char-

il‘he dancing wasn‘t the only
emotion expressed at the team's
return frotn San Antonio. From
the second he stepped off the bus,
Scott l’adgett never set down the
championship trophy. \Vhen he
was announced to the crowd, he
cradled it like a baby. He carried it
with him when the championship
banner was raised. He held it in
his lap when he was listening to
Tubby speak.

\\'hen Coach Smith was intro-
duced and invited to the micro-
phone, the crowd and players
erupted into a standing ovation
lasting more than a minute, with
the now-expected chant of
u'l‘ubby, 'l‘ubby" thrown in for
good measure.

Tubby gave thanks to his wife,
Donna, for all of her support, and
then. as if the people of the state
didn't love him enough, he
thanked them as well.

“The outpouring here and the
love affair that yott all have for
Kentucky basketball and for this
program is unbelievable and sec-
ond to none," Smith said.

The three seniors took their
tttrn addressin the crowd, with
all fighting back the emotion that
was evident in their 5 eeches.

Now comes the mad dash for

just after the final buzzer sound-

Almost as quickly as the pro-

answered the door in flip—flops, cut-

Immediately, he be an talking
about his plan to builtllup down—
town. .\lc(iinnis wants the area to
offer a greater variety of services
and entertainment.

“I want to make it look like it is
not a ghost town," he said.

To accomplish this, McGinnis
proposes more. More available
parking that's free. More street
activity. .\Iore vendors. More
shopping, and a tnodern theater
showing It) movies. He thinks
these changes will positively affect
businesses that ttiight stay open
longer, drop prices and make
downtown tnore attractive.

.\Ic(.'innis is surely an unex—
pected candidate for mayor.

Ilorn and raised in Lexington,
he graduated with a finance
degree from [K in I991 and con-
siders himself an entrepreneur.
Ile has started three companies
since two. one production corn—
pany and two service-oriented
companies. Though he has never
been involved with politics iii the
past. he said he is enthusiastic
about starting his political career.

“I have always wanted to be
involved with politics because I have
always been interested with the way
politics work," .\Ic( iinnis said.

Politicians serve special inter-
ests and the people, and he thinks
this is wrong. saying, “I will serve
the people and the people only."

One way he wants to serve the
people better is through funding

Mellinnis says
youth can lead

using tax dollars. McGinnis is
mainly concerned with the Fayette
County Correctional Institute.
.\Ic(}innis says the new institute
bein built on Frankfort Pike,
whic will cost about $15 million
per year to operate, doesn't need
money from tax—payers.

“It can be done. If someone tells
me I can't do it, I tell them I can
and I will because where there’s a
will there’s a way,” McGinnis said.

How? Make the inmates eco-
nomically productive, McGinnis
said. Other prisons have done this
in the past by such jobs as making
license plates.

This would make it possible for
the inmates to learn a trade and pay
for their stay in prison. This can
appeal to inmates who, for example,
could make 100 “gadgets" a day for
money, and if they choose, make
100 more “gadgets" and receive
certain material rewards.

“People have already been vic-
timized by the crime, and then
they are victimized again by hav-
ing to pay the taxes for the crimi—
nals to live,” McGinnis said.

This Ian would save millions
in tax dollars, which he says can be
used to improve downtown or
social programs.

Mdiinnis wants to initiate a fam-
ily court that would have a central
unit for various social programs to
report to. This system could track
tax dollars as well as the progress and
validity of the money being spent.

“People are overtaxed by the
local, federal and state govern»
ments, and that doesn't need to be
the case," he said.

McGinnis hopes his stance on
“using every two dollars to the
fullest," his enthusiasm about the
position and his genuine concern
for the city and its people will pull

Service models itself after the movie ‘Animal House”

By Delmar Watkins
Sniff ll ’riter

Students can now navigate
through their problems online.

A new website, http://wwwani-
malhouse.com, is an online guide
to college survival.

“The people at
animalhousecom thought that
there were no web sites devoted to
the problems that college students
find important," said Stephanie
Rudnick, of Edelman PR \Vorld-

wide. “They are making the
resources they wish were available
to them in the ’70s and '80s”

“\Ve are trying to make a corti-
tnunity for college students, and our
technology can make life a lot easi-
er," saidjay Samit, president of Ani-
malhousecom, which gets its name
from the cult movie, Animal House.

The site has several areas that
students might find useful. ()ne
section of the site has a TV guide
and schedule maker, allowing stu—
dents to plan their TV watching

around studying time.

Another page has a place to sub-
tnit resumes and writing samples.
Rudnick said almost 1,000 compa—
ny sponsors have agreed to look at
resumes from the site, including
Microsoft, CBS Sportsline, Daily
Variety, Tribune Media Services,
\Vomen's \Vire and Cotntntouch.

A termpaper database allows
students to get ideas and examples
for effective essays. Shopping and
cooking databases lists recipes and
coupons to make picking tip food

Pages including the latest news
allows students to “Break away
frotn the microcosm that they
sometimes feel themselves cuter,”
Rudnick said.

The travel page ives weather
information to travelers. as well as
a carpool bulletin board.

Most of the content of the site
comes frotn students, however.

With students input, animal-
house.com will have the best infor-
mation on “where to park illegally
on campus, where to pound the
cheapest slammers and chow down
the greasiest burrito," Rudnick said.

“\Ve want to fill the site tip with
stuff frotn the students' campus,
from the best place to hangout to
the best and worst professors."

One main advantage of the site
is the ability to communicate with
friends in other places, Samit said.

Animalhousecom allows college
students to communicate in several
ways, includin free e-mail for life,
classified ads, ice uncensored web
space, a ‘buddy list‘ that tells you
when friends are online and the
ability to use voice/video conferenc-
ing over the Internet for free, said
(Ire Kauhnan, campus administra-
tor ftgir .»\nimalhouse.com.

“It‘s neat to see people makin
web pages, sendin mail throuin
buddy lists, and fil ing up the site
with content," Kaufman said.

“You can call all of your friends
and it won't cost you a dime,"
Samit said.

Currently UK does not have a
representative on the site. The
representative is in charge of get-
ting tuore peo Ie to add content
to the site, antrin return can win
free long distance calls and other
incentives, Samit said.

Each student who signs up to
the site is asked to be representa—
tives until they fill the position.

“A lot of services charge money
for the content we give college
students," Kaufman said, “and
they don't have the same attitude
that we have."

(larol Behr. manager of
Kennedy‘s Bookstore. said yester~
day's demand for merchandise was
at a fever pitch.

“Sales are going absolutely
great. stupendous." Behr said.
“-\lmost all otour merchandise is
here right now. but we will get
more in."

Kennedy's has anything and
everything a die—hard L'K cotild
possibly want from this year's stir—
ring title run. llehr said.

“\Ve have T—shirts in 17 differ—
ent designs, almost all of which are
here now.“ Behr said. “\Ve also
have championship hats. vests.
windbreakcrs, sweatshirts, long—
sleeve T—shirts and glassware. such
as shot glasses and mugs."

The shirts at Kennedy‘s come
in youth and adult sizes. and range
in cost from S] 1.99 (for youth) to
$15.99 and up (adult sixes). Shot
glasses are $4.49 a piece. which is
much less expensive than the
embroidered sweatshirts. which
ring up at a pricey $79.9”.

Despite the expense of some of
the items. ['K fans have not given
a second thought to shelling out
dollars for their beloved (Iats.

“Two years ago. there was not a
huge trenyy," llehr said. “But we did
sell merchandise through the entire
summer, which I expect again. The
big thing so far has been mail orders.
\\'e have had people from all over
the country calling in orders and
paying Federal lixpress a lot of
money for overnight delivery."

The [K Bookstore has also
seen a flurry of activity surround—
ing its championship merchandise.

“Sales have been very good for
the first day," ['K Bookstore titan-
ager Dave Mulberger said. “\\'e
have gotten about l0—12 styles of
Shirts in and sold otit of {our of
those. \Vc received 3,000 shirts
and have sold three—fourths of
those, along with 600 hats."

Fans should not worry about the
enormous number of sales cleaning
out the racks. .\lnlberger said.

“\\'e still have a lot to come in
yet,“ Mulberger said. “Sweatshirts.
pullover jackets. giftware and glass-
ware take a few days to get in. \Ve
will also get tiiore shirts."

Mulberger said several storc
employees came in to work at 4
a.m. to prep-are for the hectic day.
and they opened the doors before
7 a.m. because fans were waiting
to get shirts. He expects the trend
to continue for days to come.

“This week. into next week will
be very busy." he said. “Several
employees have told tne that today
has been much busier than when
we won in NW). but that was due
to too much selection then.

“This year we have seen cus-
tomers leaving with up to nine of
the same shirts and have sold over
W at a time to some people
through mail-order."

Lexington's local music scene

and transformations in the last few

SAN ANTONIO — “'hen Tubby Stnith
came to Lexington to be the head Cat. there
were a few rumblings about the race factor.

.\ small minority questioned ifhe could win
like a certain Italian-American coach now with
the Boston Celtics.

All Stnith did was win a national champi—
onship and buried a race question in a casket.

“That never crossed my mind." Smith said.
“I was happy for our players, happy for my staff
because this program is tnore than just .1 bav
ketball program. it is really a way of life and
people to live and breathe Kentucky basketball.

really go to Kentucky when his son is going to
stay at the L'niversity ofGeorgia?

“The race thing was never a problem. it
only degraded the Kentucky fans saying that
race is a problem. Kentucky fans are great
fans and they only see two colors ~ blue and
white. If you don’t win you're not a good
coach. Plain and simple. But family was an
