Budget cuts will mean

Feeling the crunch: Possible 9 percent cut in funds

Faced with a possible
$28 million cut in state fund—
ing, UK administrators froze

among other college presi-
dents. will present a sce-
nario today to state legisla-
tors. detailing what UK will
have to do to account for the
funding decreases. State bud-
get estimates Show a $384
million shortfall for the fis-
cal year 2004. The Kentucky
Constitution requires the
General Assembly to pro-
duce a balanced budget.
State legislators are asking
universities to cinch their
purse strings in hopes of
sparing primary and sec
ondary education from se~

vere cuts.

UK receives $310 million
in state funds.

Provost Mike Nietzel
said the budget reduction
strategies came. in part.
from a list of suggestions
sent out in December by Gov.
Paul Patton's office. Univer»
sities were asked to consider
ways to reduce their budgets
by 5.4 percent. which would
mean about a $16 million de-
crease for UK. Nietzel said.

In the last two weeks.
the state asked universities
to find ways to compensate
for a 9 percent decrease in
state allocations. a decrease
of $28 million. Nietzel said.

Though the extent and
effects of the cuts on UK

aren‘t known. Nietzel said
leaving faculty and staff po-
sitions vacant is the only
way to find the funds.

“To get a handle on this
amount of money we have to
freeze these positions." Niet‘
zel said. “It's the only way to
get to the amount of money
on the cost reduction side."

More than 100 faculty
positions. in addition to staff
positions. will be left vacant.

million to $13 million.

Though UK is still ad-
mitting students and has no
immediate plans to curb en-
rollment. having less faculty
will mean fewer classes

No pain, no gain? UK gyms' fitness tests,
emergency plans help reduce risk of death, injuries

B_y Jonathan Lipscomb


More than half of fit-
ness clubs nationwide do not
have emergency response
plans and one-third fail to
screen clients for cardiovas-
cular disease. according to a
medical journal.

However. all of UK's fa-
cilities. including the new
Bernard M. Johnson Student
Recreation Center. have
these precautions in place.
although many gym patrons
aren't aware of them.

According to a recent re-
port in Chest. a medical jour-
nal. 55 percent of fitness fa~
cilities surveyed don't have
response plans and 28 per-
cent don't test patrons for
cardiovascular disease.

Both the American
Heart Association and the
American College of Sports
Medicine recommend emer-
gency polices in conjunction
with cardiovascular screen«

ing. The recommendations
are aimed at fitness facilities
and all persons planning to
enroll or participate in activ-
ities at health and
fitness clubs.

Suggestions included
written emergency policies
that are practiced regularly
and a well-structured cardio-
vascular screening process.

Because of the lack of
exercise and the prevalence
of heart disease among
Americans. the group of
physicians and medical pro-
fessionals that wrote these
recommendations empha-
sized that “the training and
preparedness of an astute
professional staff who can
readily handle emergencies
is paramount."

Rob Hayslett. fitness di-
rector at the Johnson Center.

“It's critical." Hayslett
said. “If something were to
happen. having everyone
trained on the proper way to

respond in the event of an
emergency is important."

The Johnson Center has
75 student employees. 10
graduate assistants and nine
full-time employees. All have
basic first-aid training and
CPR certification.

Since it opened. the
Johnson Center has been av-
eraging close to 2.000 visitors

“We probably offer more

equipment than most places
in the country." said
Hayslett. “And with so many

President George W. Bush spoke to Congress and country during his

sends tens of thousands of troops and tons
of equipment to the Persian (‘iull~ region in

dramatically if President Bush should de-

dozens of pieces of information FBI Direc-
tor Robert Mueller directed the 56 FBI field
offices to find. The survey is intended to es-
tablish a better picture of the demographics

Doctor defends branding
UK onto woman's uterus

Marking: Doctor says brand helps him orient organ
during surgery; state medical board will review case


geon being sued for brand-
ing a patient's uterus with
the initials of his alma
mater -— the University of
Kentucky 4* defended his
actions Tuesday as a rou-
tine part of a hysterectomy

Dr. Michael Guiler said
in a statement that marking
the uterus gives doctors a
point of reference before it
is removed.

Guiler. who used a cau-
terizing instrument to
brand “UK" on Stephanie
Means' uterus. said the let-
ters marked the organ‘s
midline and distinguished
its left and right side.

“Not only am I always
able to remain oriented for
the patient's safety. I felt this

was honorable since it made
reference to the college of
medicine where I received
my medical degree." he said
in the statement. which he
read to reporters.

Guiler emphasized that
the markings “were not in-
tended to demean the pa-
tient in any way and were
done only with the patient's
safety in mind."

Means filed suit last
week. claiming she suffered
emotional distress after
viewing a videotape of last
year‘s operation. She and
her husband are seeking un-
specified damages.

Earlier. in interviews on
ABC's “Good Morning
America“ and NBC's “To-
day,“ Guiler said that before
surgery. patients are in
formed about the procedure.

how it is performed and
about the need to mark the
uterus. But he said the type
of marking was not previ-
ously discussed.

Kim Alumbaugh. chair-
woman of the Kentucky
chapter of the American
College of Obstetricians
and Gynecologists. said
some surgeons rely on
stitches. burn marks or oth-
er identifiers before remov-
ing an organ.

Alumbaugh declined to
comment on the specifics of
the lawsuit but said the
state medical licensing
board will probably review
the case.

"A situation like this.
where there is some contro-
versy. will be reviewed. and
rightly so to evaluate it for
appropriate medical proce-
dure." she said. “In any sur-
gical procedure. the dignity

FBI witness charged with lying in court

Indictment: Scientist said she lied in a pre-trial hearing
for the man convicted of killing a UK football player


An FBI scientist who ad—
mitted lying in the case of a
man who was convicted in
the death of a University of
Kentucky football player has
been indicted on a misde-
meanor charge.

Kathleen Lundy was
charged with false swearing.
which carries a penalty of
up to 90 days in jail. The
charge requires that prose-
cutors prove that Lundy
knowingly lied. that she did
so during an official pro-
ceeding and that the lie was
material, meaning the truth
likely would have resulted
in a different outcome.

Ten days ago. Fayette
County Circuit Judge
Thomas Clark issued an
opinion saying that the
truth would not have
changed his mind or altered
the course of the case
against Shane Ragland. who
was convicted in March of
the 1994 sniper slaying of
UK football player Trent

The lie centered on the

manufacturing process of
bullet maker Winchester.

During a hearing to deter-
mine whether the compari-
son of lead from bullets
found at Ragland's home to
lead from DiGiuro‘s head

was science or quackery.
Lundy said Winchester
melted its own bullet lead
until 1996. In fact. Winches-
ter had stopped melting its
own bullet lead in 1986.

Lundy corrected her tes-
timony during the trial.
then returned to Washing-
ton. DC. and told her su-
pervisors that she had lied
at the earlier hearing. She
was suspended from her
normal duties.

J. Guthrie True. one of
Ragland‘s defense attor-
neys. was surprised by the
indictment but was disap-
pointed that Lundy was not
charged with felonious per-
jury. “I guess they only par-
tially whitewashed it." he

True said Lundy‘s lie

made a large difference:
Pre-1986 lead batches
weighed 2.000 pounds.
whereas the lead that was
shipped later came in
200.000-pound lots. By fudg—
ing the date by a decade.
True said. Lundy made it
appear the Ragland bullets
came from a batch of lead
that would make 120.000 bul-
lets rather than 12 million.

A special prosecutor.
Tom Smith. is heading up
the prosecution of Lundy.
She has no court appear-
ances scheduled.

A spokesman at FBI
headquarters had no infor-
mation Monday about the
number of bureau employ-
ees criminally charged with
perjury but said it was an
extremely rare event.

tightening admissions in the
future. Nietzel said.

This year, UK had its
largest freshman class ever.

“It’s going to be difficult
to take in a freshmen class
as large as last year’s and
this year’s" with fewer facul-
ty, Nietzel said. “We need to
really consider if we can
provide the education stu-
dents want and need."

Schools do not have: tuition.

The Board of Trustees
approved a 5.5 percent tu-
ition increase for 2004 more
that a year ago. but that will
not be enough to help with
the shortfall. Nietzel said.

“We know we will have
to raise [tuition] even more
than we planned. we just
don't know how much more
yet.“ Nietzel said. “There is
no doubt tuition will in-
Crease more unless a mira-
cle happens."

Nietzel presented the
budget reduction strategies
yesterday to UK college
deans to help clarify the
new restrictions and limits.

School of Education
Dean James Cibulka said
higher education funding
cuts will hurt more than
just the universities.

“It is our responsibility
and charge to produce good
teachers. administrators
and conduct research in the
field of education.“ Cibulka
said. “These cuts would
harm elementary. middle
and secondary schools."

School of Pharmacy
Dean Kenneth Roberts said
the budget cuts would put
services provided by the
university at great risk.

“A 9 percent cut is a
deep cut and it will create
pain in many ways in re-
gards to services." Roberts
said. “We have a high. top
quality pharmacy program
.. and we are disappointed
we're vulnerable to the ero-
sion of our high standing.
The budget cuts create that

UK may lose any chance
of fulfilling its goal of be-
coming a Top 20 institution
because of these cuts.

“A 9 percent cut may do
irreparable harm to the ed-

about 90 percent right after
the Sept. 11 attacks.

first term is usually a time to
consolidate gains and frame
