Will Noble, a former UK football player, donated his 20th pint of blood Friday at the Central Kentucky Blood Center. Noble's grandfather
was his inspiration for giving. Lloyd Noble was one pint short of 25 gallons in his lifetime when he died three years ago.

Lloyd Noble left his grandson a
blood donor card with one gaping
hole and a legacy to fill.

When the elder Noble died in
early 2002. he was one pint short of
donating 25 gallons of blood in his
life. That’s 199 pints in all.

His grandson, Will Noble, 22. a
former UK football player. took the
card and made it his calling. Every
chance he gets. Noble. a graduate
assistant academic adviser for
UK‘s Center for Academic and Tu-
torial Services, donates.

“Will is trying to carry on from
what Granddad did." said Scott No-
ble. Will‘s father. “He had some
pretty good inspiration.“

Although he’s a long way from
reaching his grandfather’s number.
Will Noble has already reached a
milestone. Last Friday he donated
his 20th pint of blood.

“For someone so young to have
donated 20 pints. that‘s remark-
able.“ said Dan Dickson. communi-
cations director for the Central
Kentucky Blood Center.

Lloyd Noble worked as a substa-
tion technical engineer in Winches-
ter. Ky. He was a giver all his life.
Scott Noble said. Lloyd then taught

those lessons to Will at a very
young age.

He took him camping. and the
grandson later became an Eagle

“He and Granddad were awfully
tight." Scott Noble

Will Noble donat-
ed his first pint of
blood when he was a
junior at George
Rogers Clark High
School in Winches-
ter. Ky. His grandfa-
ther told him about
helping others
shortly thereafter.

“He was the one
who turned me on to
it in high school.
God rest his soul."
Will Noble said.
“That was his
cause." 7

After his grand-
father died. when Will was a re-
serve sophomore offensive tackle
for the Cats, he adopted his grand-
father's cause.

“it became more important at
that point.“ Scott Noble recalled.

Said Will Noble: “It got rolling
after that."

Just about every four months.

For Will Noble. it lasts 38 min

machine separates the red blood

saline and plasma is then pumped

Noble said. “I don't

He squeezes a
red ball to circulate the blood. Af-
ter the needle is in his arm. he
starts to feel lightheaded.

“l‘ve got it down to a science
now." Noble said.

He plans on becoming just like
all the other regulars.

SG candidate targets safety

8y Tricia McKenny

Fifteen Student Government
Senate candidates dodged mud
puddles and broken glass to in-
spect areas around campus last
night in a safety walk.

The walk. organized by 80
presidential candidate Becky
Ellingsworth and her running
mate Kyle Burns. was designed
to raise awareness of safety is-
sues surrounding campus.
Ellingsworth said.

“There has never been a
safety walk off campus. and we
think it is important to focus on
off-campus students and include
all students." Ellingsworth said.

“I hope to get an initial feel-
ing for some issues I may be fac-
ing (if elected) and start coming
up with ideas.“ she said.

The safety walk went
through State Street and Uni-
versity Avenue and the sur-
rounding areas. It and was a

students to contact their legisla-

Newton met with students to
discuss the injustice of the
state‘s tax system. which he said
punishes low-income students
and their families.

“We hope to raise awareness

The walk uncovered several
areas of concern, including ar-

Lahr said the proposed tax

sales are already suffering
from the recent smoking ban
in Fayette County restaurants.
she said.

But Debbie Milton, manag-
er of the Fast Lane Discount
Tobacco Outlet on South
Broadway. said it’s too early to

tell how the proposed tax in-
crwses will affect business.

Milton argued that people
are addicted to cigarettes. so
they’re going to pay whatever
it costs to get them.

HB 272 also proposes up
ping the wholesale tax from 9
percent to 11 percent on all al—
cohol sold in Kentucky Consid-
ering that the current 9 per-
cent tax is factored in before
the alcohol hits the shelves. 3
$6.99 six-pack of beer in stores
today would be $7.06 if the law
is passed, for example.

Ben Mears. a senior financ-
ing major. said a tax increase
wouldn’t affect his purchasing
of alcohol.

“I don't buy alcohol based
on taxes." Mears said. “I buy it
because I want to drink it.”

The governor’s version of
tax modernization proposed a
6 percent alcohol tax increase,
so at least the proposed 2 per-

cent increase is smaller than
that. said Dan Meyer, executive
secretary and general counsel
for the Wine and Spirits
Wholesalers of Kentucky

“It’s a pretty hefty tax in-
crease.” Meyer said.

Kentucky has “the third
highest (alcohol tax) among its
seven bordering states." Meyer

If the governor’s proposal
becomes law. Kentucky would
claim the highest alcohol tax
in the nation, he said.

Chris Fenton. an engineer-
ing junior. said both taxes are
ridiculous because heavily tax-
ing these products is only go
ing to hurt Kentucky in the
long run.

“They slowly but surely
are trying to oust tobacco in
the state with the smoking ban
and this tax increase," he said.

issue of emotion." after
Scanlon’s told him to “focus
on the facts.”

“I would have liked to
have had these things
fleshed out." Wigginton said.

Lexington Mayor Teresa
Isaac said if the council
votes to override the veto to-
morrow night, a non—profit
organization will move on
with condemnation.

Isaac said she would like
to see the Let Us Vote advo-
cacy committee put the is-
sue on a ballot.

“They have tremendous
support from the communi-
ty." she said of Let Us Vote.

“Eighteen thousand
votes will not be a problem,"
she said. referring to the
number of signatures need-
ed to get the issue on the
next ballot this fall.

Isaac hopes that once the
public votes on condemna-
tion, the issue will reappear

on the council’s agenda.

“Once the public votes,
the government will be di-
rected to proceed with litiga~
tion, and that‘s where we
will pick up where we left
off,” she said.

Isaac proposed the city’s
purchase of Kentucky
American Water Co. in 2002
from German conglomerate
RWE. The council voted to
end condemnation by an 8-
to-7 vote last month. but
Isaac pledged to continue
the pursuit of city owner-
ship by vetoing the decision.

Nine votes are required
to override the mayor‘s veto.

In a meeting last week,
Wigginton. the second dis‘
trict councilman, asked to
establish a committee of 3 to
7 council members to con-
tinue legal negotiations
with the water company.

He also proposed that the
council retract the mayor’s
authority in legal negotia-
tions. Both motions were
tabled by a council vote. The
first motion remained tabled

Fifth district councilman

Bill Farmer Jr. asked Wig-
ginton to consider overrid-
ing Isaac’s veto.

“The easy thing to do is
override the veto and move
on," Farmer said. “Not be-
cause we want to run away. I
feel like there are seven of
us in the middle of you and
the vice mayor, and I am get-
ting sea-sick."

“Think long and hard
about this veto." Farmer
said to Wigginton.

Farmer said information
that will be dispersed this
morning gives the council
the ability to take a final

stand on the issue of con--

demnation tomorrow. He
thinks Wigginton’s motions
last week were not the will
of the majority of the coun~

“We will wait on these
documents so we can peruse
them." Farmer said.

“I would think they
would satisfy his (Wiggin—
ton’s) need to know things
are legal and proper.“

His parents sued the US. gov-
ernment, charging it had con-
doned the torture of their son.

The case has triggered a
flurry of diplomatic activity.
with the State Department
making an unusual request
several weeks ago that the
Saudis charge Abu All or re
lease him into US. custody.

Those emotions were on
display Tuesday as dozens of
supporters crammed into the
federal courthouse in Alexan~
dria to glimpse Abu Ali. a US.
citizen who grew up in Falls
Church, Va. His family yelled
out greetings as he emerged in
the custody of US. marshals.
His father blinked back tears.
The family laughed aloud as
prosecutors mentioned the al-
leged plot against Bush.

But family members wept
as they left the courtroom. and
supporters expressed outrage
at the charges. Defense attor-
neys told the judge that Abu
All had been tortured in Saudi
Arabia and offered to show the
judge proof right in the court-
room. Sources said that proof
includes vertical scars along
Abu Ali‘s back showing that he
had been whipped.

“Everything the govern-
ment has said is lies upon lies
upon lies." said Abu Ali's fa-
ther. Omar Abu Ali. He de-
scribed his son as a peaceful
student of Islam who was ar-
rested in June 2003 while tak-
ing final exams at the Universi-
ty of Medina in Saudi Arabia.

But prosecutors painted a
vastly different portrait. say-
ing that Abu Ali had plotted
with America's greatest ene-
mies and that the case had
struck a major blow against
terrorism. “After the
devastating terrorist attack
and murders of Sept. 11. the
defendant turned his back on
America and joined the cause
of al-Qaida." said Paul J. Mc-
Nulty, the US. attorney in

The allegations of torture
promise to play a role as the
case progresses. “We all know
that evidence obtained from
torture is the most unreliable
evidence you can get." said Ed-
ward B. MacMahon Jr. an at-
torney for Abu Ali. “I‘m dis-
tressed that it‘s come to the
point where our government is
prepared to use evidence
gained from torture in a crimi-
nal trial in the United States."

The case is the first in
which the US. government
would have to rely. in part. on
information gathered solely by
a foreign government. in this

case. Saudi Arabia.

Because US. authorities
were not involved in Abu Ali‘s
interrogation and. therefore.
could not conduct questioning
in a manner that would stand
up in US. courts. the Alexan-
dria court may have to decide
whether any statements
gained under Saudi question-
ing should be admissible. The
case is being brought at a time
when the mle of torture in the
US. war on terror is becoming
increasingly scrutinized.

Legal experts said the de
fense will face a series of hur-
dles if it seeks to use torture al-
legations to get the case
thrown out. It is not enough.
experts said. to prove that Abu
Ali was tortured by the Saudis.

"They would need to show
that US. personnel participat-
ed in the torture 7— not the ar-
rest. not the detention. not
even the interrogation.“ said
Victoria Toensing. a Washing-
ton lawyer.

Abu Ali was born in Hous-
ton and moved to Northern
Virginia at age 4. He attended
the private Islamic Saudi
Academy in the Alexandria
section of Fairfax County. a
school for grades K—12. He
graduated as the valedictorian
and briefly attended the Uni-
versity of Maryland before go
ing to Saudi Arabia to pursue
religious studies.

MONEYMATTERS I Sawy saving and spending
Dating: Budget woes close to the heart

Through the years. I‘ve developed
many theories and philosophies on just
about everything. Call me a 40yearold
man. but to be honest. in my life. I have
failed as many times as I‘ve succeeded.
At each point. I
learned something.
I'm sure many of us
can agree that we‘ve
all gone through
many ups and downs.
But it's how we han-
dle the trials that help
us figure out who we
are and ready us for
the future.

My “question for
lesson" today: “How
do you handle money
in a relationship?"
Seems a bit irrelevant from the “big pic-
ture." a system of financial accountabil-
ity is important to the success of a rela-
tionship. Relationships are great things.
and learning at an early age how to re-
solve money issues with a partner will
definitely lead to a positive advantage in
a marriage.

Kimberly Griffiths. author of One
Paycheck at a Time. gives great insight
on how couples should manage their
money I know this may seem like a
marital issue. but it‘s important for any-
one in a committed relationship to
learn how to analyze his or her part-
ner‘s spending habits early on.

Griffith first advises couples to scru-
tinize the other‘s values on money.

“If you are a spender and the other
is a saver. arguments will inevitably oc-
cur." Griffith explains.

Some people are just born to throw
money away like it was their job. Along
the same lines. some of those people
may toss money in the air for habitual

purposes. like drugs. gambling. or oth-
er extra-curricular activities. If you‘re
a “saver" and with a person who spends
money on things that you deem less-
than-noble. it‘s probably time to start
your search for a new mate.

But. assuming the both of you are
committed to making a relationship
work. Griffith recommends couples to
create a financial path together.

“At the minimum." she suggests.
“sit down once a quarter to discuss
your finances and what your long~term
goals are."

in a college-type relationship. these
sessions should consist of discussing
personal budgets and your couple's
budget. Most couples enjoy sharing
lunch or dinner alone at least once a
week. In a perfect world. the code of
chivalry would factor in and the man
would pay for all of it.

But food bills do add up and can lead
to lots of difficulty for many college
men. That's why couples need to sit
down and figure out how to share the
budget for these types of activities.

Griffith also outlines some scenarios
couples should use in preparing a bud-

Scenario No. 1 entails both partners
making about the same amount of mon-
ey. In a student‘s eye. this would mean
both would have jobs or be financially
stable. This is definitely a plus in a rela-
tionship and when discussing budgets.
each should be able to contribute to the
plan equally

ln Scenario No. 2. Griffith describes
one partner earning substantially more
than the other. Again. looking at this in
a college perspective. this would mean
one person might earn money from a
job but also receive some sort of extra
funding from family or scholarships.


Dating + Money

While budget woes can kill a relationship,
here are some general guidelines to keep
misunderstandings at a minimum.

- Communicate. its effectiveness alone
can be mind-boggling.

- Budget: Reconcile personal budgets with
your partner; create a couple's budget.

' Share the cost of dating; one partner
shouldn't be expected to shoulder the en-
tire financial load.




It's important in this type of relation-
ship to not consider yourself more or
less important based on your income.

“Money is certainly a very impor-
tant part of life. but should never be
used as a control or power mechanism
unless you want to see the relationship
self-destruct.“ Griffith writes. “Mutual
respect. regardless of the topic. is the
cornerstone of any successful relation-

There may be more scenarios to look
at if you are in a marriage. such as one
partner earning all of the income. but
for now. these scenarios can help you
