Student Government is out of money
set aside to fund campus groups after ap-
proving eight Senate special projects at
last night’s meeting.

Three of the projects accepted
amendments to lower the amount of the
requests. and the Senate approved
510.608 overall — several hundred more
than what the committee had available.

According to a summary by Appro-
priations and Revenue Chairman Kevin
Panott. there was $9. 995 available for
projects. bllt there is a 90 percent usage
rate of the allocated funds. which means
there might be some money returned to
the fund if it is not used. which would re-
sult in more money available for projects.

Amendments lowered the initial
funds requested by over $2.000. Parrott
said he thought the Senate did a good job
in appropriating the money last night.

I was worried it would be difficult."
Pmott said. People realized the situation
we are in and were accommodating

After last night‘s Senate approval of
the projects. there is no available money
to fund student organizations or special
projects. The A&R committee will meet
to discuss what to do with new funding
applications. Parrott said

We have a vision but logistically
there are concems. Ptu'rott said. I think
we will end up having money left. but
it‘s impossible to tell when."

Senate President Tyler Montell said
the situation was difficult because it is
relatively early in the year to be low on
funds for A&R.

"We had this problem so early be—
cause (SG) has been good with commu-
nication and good with visibility so
more organizations have come to us 'for
money.“ Montcll said.

Although it was difficult for senators
to lower the requested funding for their
campus projects. Montell said this could
be a good opportunity for future A&R
members to learn.

“It's frustrating for senators to have
to say no (to organizations).“ he said.
“But it's a good experience for senators
who will be back next year to know they
have to look closely at every dollar."

The meeting opened with an address
from Provost Kumble Subbaswamy.
Senators had a question—and-answer ses-
sion with the provost and discussed the
Top 20 Business Plan. state budget cuts
and retention initiatives. Subbaswamy
encouraged SG members to keep up
their efforts of campaigning state legisla-
tors to pass as much funding toward
higher education as possible.

“People tend to think that by tighten-
ing your belt everything‘s going to be al-
right." Subbaswamy said. “But as the cuts
increase it gets to be absolutely unman-
ageable. Any kind of campaign (students)
can have is going to be effective. It's
much more effective coming from voters
than it is from university presidents."

College students from across the state
protest proposed cuts to higher ed

§y_l(otie Saltz

Gov. Steve Beshear told Kentucky
college students who were rallying
with homemade signs and painted
faces in the Capitol yesterday that
there is not enough money for higher
education in the state budget.

“First. higher educa—
tion has to be one of the
top priorities for the future
of the Commonwealth of
Kentucky." Beshcar said.
“Second. the budget does
not contain enough money
for higher education."

Over 200 people
packed into the Capitol
building in Frankfort for
the annual Rally for High-

Signs that read “Don‘t Take My

“education pays" greeted Secretary of
State Trey Grayson. who spoke to the
crowd about economic progress and
its tie to higher education.

Budget cuts would be a step back—

progress. Grayson said.

“I'm disturbed that
with the Commonwealth
again facing tough budv
getary times we might re-
vert to the traditional and
short—sighted approach to
balancing the budget —
slashing higher education."
Grayson said. "We‘ve
turned a comer. and we‘re
not turning back."

Beshear said he was

Black Panther founder to
speak on state of civil rights

By Dwight Lacy


Black Panther Party co— founder Bob-
by Seale led a group of 30 fully armed
activists into the Califomia General As-
sembly in May 1967 in opposition of leg-
islation targeting the party that would
prohibit the carrying of firearms.

The same man who helped start the
controversial group dedicated to advancing
black people will be speaking tonight at 7
in the Student Center Grand Ballroom.
Seale will share his thoughts on the civil
rights movement and where American so-
ciety stands today. said Valeashia Smith.
director of the Martin Luther King Jr. Cul-

tural Center. which is hosting the event.

“Bobby Scale is an icon in the history
of the civil rights movement ' Smith said.
“It s important that students understand
who he is the importance of the Black
Panther Party and the impact they have
on society today."

Scale was one of the founders of the
Black Panther Party in October of 1966
and is one of its last surviving original

After the assassination of black leader
Malcolm X and at the height of the civil
rights movement led by Martin Luther
King Jr.. Scale helped develop an armed
organization --— separating itself from
non- -violent efforts of the time — that
promoted social change and civil rights
for blacks. according to the party Web site
(www .blackpanther.org).

Scale who resigned as chairman of the
Black Panther Party in 1974. according to
his Web site (wwwbobbysealecom). has
served as the community liaison with the
Department of African and African- Ameri-
can Studies at Temple University and is the
author of three books including two mem-
oirs about his experiences as a Black Pan-
ther “Seize the Time" (1970) and “A
Lonely Rage" (I978)

The event. “An evening with Bobby
Scale.“ is free and open to the public.

“Come because you don‘t know." said
Valerie Clay. a recent UK graduate and
head of public relations at the MLK Cul—
tural Center. “It‘s a chance for the campus
to learn about the true workings of the
Black Panther Party. because there are
misconceptions of what they stood for."

CHICAGO —— Police are con-
cluding that the fonner academic star
who shot and killed five students last
week at Northern Illinois University
took steps to thwart investigators try—
ing to figure out why he did it,

In addition to removing the hard
drive from his laptop computer.
Steven Kazmierclak also removed
the SIM card —— a key computer chip
— from his cell phone. a police
source said.

Police also said his former girl-
friend‘s account to CNN of Kazmier-
czak‘s final weeks differed from the
one she gave to investigators.

The result is that police still do
not have a theory as to why
Kazmierczak opened fire on the
crowded lecture hall.

“That's the one thing I want to
know more than anything is motive."

Chief Donald Grady said Tuesday.
“We don‘t have anything to know or
