Fll‘lll claims "K reached dBBISIOII

UK, firm to meet wit/yin seven to 10 days

By Mai Merton

Feature; Editor

Enter IINTB for the feasibility study for a new
men's basketball arena.

The Kansas City, Mo., firm, ranked by Building,
Design and Construction magazine as the sixth-
largest architecture and engineering firm in the
United States, has been selected by UK, said the
company's vice president, Mary Axetell.

“VVe‘ll certainly work hand in hand with the Uni-
versity," said Axetell, whose career at HNTB spans
Z-l years. “\Ve’re one of the few firms in the country
that have a specialty in sports architecture."

Axetell said an employee, project manager Mike
Handleman, answered the phone call from the Uni—

versity yesterday afternoon. Ilandleniaii could not
be reached for comment.

Some dispute, though, lies iii whether or not
IINTB actually has been selected.

George DeBin, UK vice president for adiiiinistra-
tion, said yesterday that the firm has only been the
top choice — to discuss the fee for the study.

Seven firms responded to UK's invite. DeBin said
each firm was ranked, with llNTB as first, and
Rosser, a firm in Atlanta coming in second.

Third was Huber, Hunt and Nichols, the Indi—
anapolis group that completed the feasibility study
on Commonwealth Stadium and a shoe-in for the
arena study until thisjanuary.

Five individuals oversaw the ranking process of

the firms.




They were: UK Proyect Managerjack Miller, L‘K
architect \Varren E. Denny, Physical Plant Director
liill Reeser, Athletics Representative Russell Pear,
and Ken Clebidence, director of capital construction
and procurement.

Once the study has begun, Dclim said Miller
“will be the University focal point between the firm
selected and the Liniversity."

DeBin said llN'l‘B is expected to meet with Lim-
versity athletic officials within sex en to [0 days to
agree on a cost for the study.

In response to Axetell's statement, Deliin said
Axctell knows llN'l‘B has only been chosen to meet
at the bargaining table.

“I'm 100 percent confident that she knows that,"
he said.

Axetell confirmed llN'l‘B’s appointment to the
study, and said she believes UK is considering no
other groups.


Illt honors Brown
prior to blowout

By Chris Easterling
Spam Editor

It's not like he didn‘t expect it
to be this way.

In talking to the Kentucky
media on Tuesday, LSL' (ioach
Dale Brown compared the likeli—
hood of his team heating UK in
his last game at Rupp Arena to the
Biblical story of David slaying

So the fact that the \Vildcats
clobbered the Tigers 84—48 last
night wasn't a surprise to Brown,
who was 4—20 in his career in Lex—

Prior the game, UK Athletics
Director (LM. Newton presented
Brown with a plaque from the
AB. “Happy" Chandler Founda-
tion, as wel as a giant collage to
commemorate the past UK-LSU

Former \N'ildcat coach joe B.
Ilall then did an imitation of
Brown's famous coat-throwing
incident frotn the 1976 season. To
remember this, Dawahare’s
department store had a special
sportscoat tailored made and pre-
sented it to him.

After Newton finished his pre-
sentation, he turned the micro—
phone over to Brown, who is well
known for some long-winded, off—
the—top-of—his—head speeches. But
with only minutes to go prior to
the contest, he was remarkably
brief in his comments.

locus on issues

Arrixtmit Editorial Editor

Two state representatives are
making strides to continue the
long-standing tradition of UK
being the flagship university for
the state.

Kathy Stein and Ernesto Scor-
sone, both Democrats for the 75th
district, are voicing their opinions
and ideas for changes to be made
in the University,
higher education,
and praising the
leadership UK has
shown. .-

Among hot top—
ics in the recent I
hi her education .
deiates are UK’s
overseeing of the
community col—
leges, Gov. Paul Patton’s call for
$100 million in
higher education
spending, and a
Superboard ever
seeing UK and the
University of
Louisville. Pat-
ton’s plan for edu-
cation spending
won’t be out for
another few weeks.

Being a freshman House of
Representative has not made Stein
nervous. In fact, Stein said she has
not had time to think about
nerves, for she has been thrown in
with the wolves of state legisla-









“I spent a lifetime opening my
mouth when I shouldn't have,” he
told the 23,98] in attendance at
Rupp Arena to watch the Cats
trounce the Tigers, “so today, I
want to make sure I show the class
that (the UK fans) have shown me

He then read a quote that for-
mer UCLA coach john \Vooden
told him earlier yesterday after-

“I know the word thanks is a
sirn le. one-syllable word," he
read). “Often used without true
meaning. However, when it is
used with sincerity, no collection
of words can be more expressive
or more meaningful.”

Since he arrived in Lexington
Tuesday, Brown has attended
many different functions, includ—
ing a luncheon for the AB.
“Happy" Chandler Foundation
and an honorary breakfast at the
Hilton Suites sponsored by The
Cats' Pause publisher Oscar

UK Coach Rick Pitino was
pleased with the reception Brown


“I’m proud of the fans and
administration for givin Dale
Brown such a great send off,” Piti-
no said. “He certainly deserved it
for being at LSU for 25 years.”

The gifts he has received from
the various SEC schools will be
placed in the LSU Athletics Hall
of Fame.

“I am very pleased with m

Stein is a mem er of the Judiciary

she is the vice-chair of the Health

“My commitment to the

“We’ve got needs across the
board,” he said. “We’ve got needs

needs to technical programs. And
the areas that will probably be the
greatest changes are going to be in
the areas of the community col-
leges and the technical schools.”

Community colle have been
causing a little bit 0 a stir in voic-

from UK and become their own
separate entity.

The Student Government Association
is finding a cheaper way to make roads
safer for students by providing cab ser—
vice for the exchange of a pre—paid taxi

The taxi voucher works like cash. A
student will simply have to present the

students for $7, saving each person $3.
Aja said the $500 for purchasing the
vouchers from the company will come

The Senate allotted Aja $2 500 at the
beginning of this term, but Aja said he

“We will start with 500, if they don't
sell then UTI will buy the booklets
back,” Aja said.Lexington’s three main
cab services —— Holiday Cab, Lexin on
Yellow Cab and Wildcat Cab — w ich
are owned by United Transportation
Inc., will accept taxi vouchers at any time.

Aja designed a card specifically for taxi
use that worked like a debit card, but
United Transportation Inc. did not agree

Taxi company and SEA come
to terms for voucher system

decided on the voucher coupons. The

company agreed.

Aia is satisfied with the outcome.

“It passed many hands before it
finally got done,” he said. “It will be
cheaper for the students and I think it's
going to be great."

The money students pay SGA for the
booklets will be used for SGA’s child care

According to Aja, the child care grants
“help students who have children
with tuition expenses."

The money will help fulfill
SGA's goal to increase the num-
ber of child care grants next year.

This year SGA is supporting

SG five students with child care

Until SGA is able to negotiate
with a ticket distributor, the taxi vouchers
will be sold in the SGA office in 120 Stu-
dent Center, beginning Wednesday. Aja
said Student Center employees will be in
charge of collecting the money and the
cash will be turned into Student Center
Directorjohn Herbst.

The taxi voucher program was one of
Aja’s original campaign goals at the
beginning of the semester.

The student ori 'nally in charge of the
program left U at the end of last

It was then handled by Carrie Sterling
Wilder, former executive director of stu-‘
dent services, until she left SGA.

At the beginning of this semester Aja
himself took initiative to try to fulfill his
campaign promise.

And it seems everybody in the

him coming.

“J. l. I1 is the best sense of

_lohnson has worked at UK for
16 years in the custodial depart—
ment and has covered plenty of
campus. Ile has been stationed in
the Fine Arts Building, Anderson
Ilall, the (his A. Singletary Cen—
ter and the Art Museum —- just to
name a few.

But Dickey I Iall is his favorite.

“The people are nice here," he
said. “The professors and the stu-
dents —- they’re nice."

He also has a good relationship
with the people whom he works
for in custodial services a Rober-
ta Young and I ric Moss

“I think that we underestimate
the importance of kindness, and
kindness can be a major contribu—
tion to the overall suc-
cess of students and
faculty," said Moss,
superintendent of cus—
todial services. “U._l.) is

“You look around and there’s a
lot of people in worse shape than
you are,” he said. “I've got lots to

e thankful for.”

And that’s the motto
he lives bv. If he doesn't
feel good one day, he
tries to forget about it
while he’s at work, and
continues to keep an
“up” attitude and help
others do the same. This
is his own best medicine.

“I figure ifI can make
somebody smile, it makes
me feel good,” he said.
“The only thing that
keeps me going is faith
and a smile.”

Something’s got to keep him

Ile often doesn t go to bed
until after the II o clock news and
he has to be at work by 5:30 a.m.
But he likes getting up early.


“I’m so used to it."

When he s at home in the
evenings, he likes to rent mmies
and enjoy music

“I like music — all kinds.’ said

Johnson. But his favorite is Toni

Braxton. “I like to dance, too, and
I like to sing."

He used to sing with groups,
but now he mostly just sings to
himself, and occasionally to the
people on the second and third
floors of Dickey Ilall.

It’s just another way _lohnson
cheers up tired students, faculty
and staff.

“He’s an all~the-time—going
person." Young said of _lohnson.
“Everybody loves him —- we think
he's special."

Ironically, it's probably _lolm-
son’s way of making everyone else
feel special that makes him so pop-
ular. It definitely has a lot to do
with that omnipresent smile.

“They always say. ‘Smile. the
world will smile with you; frown
and you frown alone.m
