Officials from the
Asphalt Institute and
UK broke ground yes
terday for the new As-
phalt Institute Head-
quarters, which will
be located at UK's
Spindletop Farm.

The Asphalt lnsti-
tute announced in Au-
gust it would relocate

St all reports


Fayette County Circut Judge George
Barker indicated yesterday that he would
rule to release the full details of the 18
allegations of NCAA rules Violations
against the LIK basketball program.

Barker heard arguments from represen-
tatives oi the University and the Owner-
Journal yesterday. in October. the newspa-
per iilcd a joint petition with UK for the
release of the full text of the allegations

l'K released to the media a summary of
a letter sent to ['K president David Roselle
irom the NCAA containing a list of the al—
legations. The letter. released in October.
omitted the names of those involved in the

James Park. UK legal counsel advised
Roselle that at the time “ the l'niversi-
ty obligation to protect the privacy of lildt~
\‘iduals requires that we not release the
tall text of the NCAA allegations at the
present time.”

Barker said yesterday that the allega»
tions should be considered open records
under the Kentucky open records law

Barker said. however. that he had not
made his final judgment on the matter and
that the decision was only preliminary He
said the decision was subject to review
atter he hears further arguments

I‘K officials argued yesterday that re
leasing the iiill text of the list oi allega-
tions would invade the privacy oi the indi
\ idiials mentioned

The (“ourier Journal countered by saying
the in” text would not be aii invasion of
priiacy, that the allegations had little to
do with educational records and that the
Nt‘;\.\ investigation is we“ passed the pre
Iiiiiinary stages

Search committee

for AD named

St ati reports

The l'niversity yesterday announced the
iormation yesterday of a six~member com-
mittee to screen candidates for the (K
athletics director position.

The search for a new athletics director
was spurred by the resignation oi t'hii
Hagan from the post. Hagan served as ath—
letics director at {K for i3 years and
stepped down in the midst of a number of
allegations oi N('AA rule infractions by the
[K basketball program.

Joseph Burch was named interim athlet
its director after Hagan‘s resignation

Ed Carter. UK vice president for admin
istration. said Charles Wethington, chan-
cellor oi the UK community college sys-
tem. will be the committee chairman

ttther members of the committee will be
l’cggy Meszaros. dean of the l'K t‘ollege of
Home Economics. William B Sturgill of
lA‘Xlllglllil, an alumnus of the l'niversity'
and a member of the K~Men‘s Association.
Robert (E Lawson. the l’niversity's N(‘AA
taculty representative. Bruce Rector of
lexmgton. a UK student. and S T Roach
of lexington. an at large representative

All the members of the committee are
members of the UK Athletics Association
Board oi Directors

The committee will conduct a nationwide
search for candidates and will make rec-
ommendations to Carter for his consider-
ation. Carter will then make recommenda-
tios to UK President David Roselle who
Will make the final recommendation to the
UK Board of Trustees.

(‘arter said that he expects the commit-
tee to begin deliberating immediately and
have its work completed in early spring.

“We want the commitee to take whatev-
er time is necessary to identify the best
possible candidates for this important l'ni-
versity post," Carter said.

Once built, the facility will serve as the
headquarters of asphalt research in the
United States.

Gerald S. 'l‘riplett. president of the Insti—
tute said in August that the lnstitute's
lease expires in 1991 and the university
needed the building so the Institute began
a search last year for a new location.

“One year ago we began a serious
search for new headquarters." said David
Ross, chairman of the Asphalt Institute.
“tUKI had tough competition with four
other universities. "

Officials did not know when construction
on the project would start, but some pre-

vious estimates scheduled the facility to be
open by mid 1990

UK was chosen over Purdue I niversity.
the University of Maryland the University
of Texas and Texas A&\l. all well known
engineering schools

Ross said the institute selected [K for
many reasons such as the central location
which is near Washington D.(‘.. economic
package. its outstanding research site. the
Kentucky transportation center and [K
President David Roselle's support

Sutton and staff
should step down
at end of season

When Eddie Sutton was named head coach of UK‘s
men's basketball team in March 1985. he called [K the No.
l coaching job in the nation.

iAlIl my life I have grown to tbt‘llt‘Yt‘l this is
where I belong," Sutton said the day he was named the
only the third coach in 55 years.

More than three years later. with his program facing 18
allegations and possible probation. it is evident Sutton
should be removed from the No I coaching job in the na-

Sutton has one year remaining on his contract after this
season. but a clause in it provides that if the basketball
program is caught violating any rules. [K has the right to

If any of the allegations are proven true by the NCAA.
UK certainly would be justified in firing Sutton. But the
University will have to wait until next spring before it
learns the truth about any of the allegations and that
would be too late

The University must take action immediately to rebuild
the basketball program and the I'niversity's reputation.

By making it clear now that this season will be Sutton‘s
and the rest of the coaching staff's last season at CK. the
University would send a clear signal to the NCAA that it is
taking appropriate action to restore integrity and honesty
to its program.

Although it would be desirable to see the coaching staff
removed immediately. it is only fair to the 13 players to
allow the staff remain until the end of the season.

Also. it would be honorable
for Sutton and his staff to an-
nounce they are stepping
down at the end of the season.
But if Sutton does not under-
stand the need for the basket-
ball program to start over. the
UK administration should buy
out his contract.

It would cost the University
$166,668 to buy out Sutton‘s
contract _ $84334 for the one
year he has remaining and
$84,334 for one year of sever—
ance pay. That cost is a small
price to pay to restore credibi-
lity to the basketball program.

When former Athletics Di-
rector Cliff Hagan stepped
