that’s not enough. it’s al-

most midnight.

It’s the type of atmos-
phere Herbst says he wants
to see every night across
the street at the Student
Center. He’s been the cen-
ter’s director for five years,
and he has big plans for the
place: concerts and comedy
in the game room, a Kinkos
and travel agency, student
art brightening the walls.
He wants later hours; the
center closes at 11 pm.

A student center
should be a lively. vibrant
place. he says.

“We are here for the
students," he says.

And if Herbst’s life is
any reflection, the Student
Center could be a much
better place with a little
well-spent money. His co-
workers say the center has
already improved under
his leadership; outside of
work, Herbst is a dedicated
father, hot air balloon pilot
and “country boy.“

State wants cleaner air near park

MAMMOTH CAVE State environ
mental officials are hoping to improve the
hazy skies that hang around Mammoth Cave
National Park. The state Department of E11-
vironmental Protection wants improvement
in visibility at the park by 2010. though de-
tails of how to get there are still in the
works. “We‘re currently working on the inr
plementation portion of the plan.” said
Lona Brewer. program planning branch
manager for the department‘s Air Quality
Division. The division's long—term goal is to
improve visibility at the park by 2010. Brew-
er said. A deciview is based on surveys of
how people see distant objects. said Bob Car-
son. Mammoth Cave's air-quality specialist.
The higher the deciview number. the lower

at about 30 deciviews during the summer.

Ridge confirmed as Homeland chief

WASHING'I‘ON The Senate confirmed
Tom Ridge as homeland security chief
Wednesday with a unanimous vote , and a
strong message that it would be watching
carefully as he molds a makeshift operation
into one of government‘s largest agencies.
“With today's historic. vote. the Senate has
demonstrated our shared commitment to do-
ing everything we can to secure our home-
land." President Bush said after the 94-0 vote
to make Ridge. former Pennsylvania goverv
nor and the president‘s top adviser on do-
mestic terrorism. the first secretary of the
new Homeland Security Department. It
eventually will be comprised of 170.000 civil
servants now working at 22 separate agen-
cies with security-related functions. Senate
Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman
Susan Collins. R-Maine. said during debate
on the Ridge nomination Wednesday that
the Cabinet post Ridge will assume “may
well be the most challenging position creat-
ed by Congress during the last 50 years.“
Sen. Robert Byrd. D-W.Va.. who strongly op-
posed the legislation creating the new de~
partment. complained of the “expanding
cloak of secrecy that has fallen over this ad-
ministration" as it pursues the war on ter-
rorism. and said Ridge must consider care-
fully how his actions will affect civil liber-
ties. “How far this department can peer into
the lives of the American public will, in
large part. be influenced by Gov. Ridge." he
said. Committee chairman John McCain. R-
Ariz.. urged him not to betray the trust he
has with Congress by concealing problems.
“There‘s bound to be some mistakes made."
McCain said. “Your charter is too large. your
responsibilities are too great.“

Surge of identity thefts reported

WASHINGTON — The government re-
ceived twice as many complaints about iden-
tity theft last year over 2001. with victims re-
porting hijacked credit cards, drained bank
accounts and tarnished reputations. “This is
a crime that is almost solely on the shoul-
ders of the victim to resolve." said Beth
Givens. director of the Privacy Rights Clear-
inghouse. a San Diego-based consumer
group. The number of identity theft com-
plaints rose from about 86.000 in 2001 to
about 162.000 last year. the Federal Trade
Commission said Wednesday. The figures
come from a government database of 380.000
fraud complaints collected by the FTC. the
FBI and scores of law enforcement and con-
sumer groups. Identity theft accounted for 43
percent of the complaints. topping the gov-
ernment‘s list of consumer frauds for a
third consecutive year. Gripes about fraud in

there‘s enough money to
make these ideas reality.

other universities who are
putting more money into stu-
dent social facilities. C01-
leges began building student
centers in the 1930s: portions
of UK‘s center date back to
1937. The building trend
picked up again in the 19605
and 1970s. and it has come
again. Herbst said

While they await the
board‘s vote. Herbst and oth-
er campus leaders are busy
making plans.

Most important to the
center's future could be a
proposal for a casual dining
restaurant. such as Apple-
bee's or TGI Friday’s.

“I believe very strongly
that upscale. casual dining
restaurant in this building
would make a dramatic dif-


ference." Herbst said. “I do
think there's a high desire
for something like that.
We've seen that with trends
nationally: too."

Brandon Yeiser. who was
eating at Long John Silver
in the Student Center. said
he‘d probably come to the
building more often if
there were better dining op-

“It would be a different
choice." said Yeiser. a busi-
ness management junior.

“And one a little bit nicer
than usual.“

A committee has begun
meeting about the restau-

rant. which is also proposed
to have a bar. despite the dry
campus policy.

Herbst said he‘s not sure
if serving alcohol is neces-
sary to getting more students
into the center. but he isn't
opposed to the idea.

“I do not have a problem
with it." he said. "As long as

over the years. but he says
his love for the students has
remained constant.

“When former students
come back. it's the thrill of
your life." he says. “They are
so bright and so creative.
That’s the real energizer.“

Outside of the Student
Center. Herbst has another
energizer: piloting hot air bal-
loons. He stumbled onto the
hobby through -— what else?
— a Student Center function.

In 1976, a student walked
into his office with a proposi-
tion: What about hiring a hot
air balloon pilot to give stu-
dents rides during an upcom~
ing event? Herbst knew noth-
ing about hot air balloons; he
told the student he would
have to find out if they were
dangerous and run it by ad-
ministrators. The adminis-
trators agreed. and the hot

air balloon pilot brought
along his friends. too. mak-

“As soon as i took that

He bought his own bal-
loon a little over a decade af-
ter that first flight. His 13-
year-old son. Marshall. took
his first ride when he was 18
months old. The two have
been flying together since.

“It‘s such a delightful
hobby to have. You go to the
balloon shows. and you're re-
united with a huge family.“

Sniper suspect indicted

under murder cha

Fairfax County
Sheriff's deputies
escort John Lee
Malvo. out of
Juvenille Court
Wednesday, in
Fairfax, Va. Prose-
cutors in the case
against Malvo
revealed new infor-
mation Wednesday
about messages to
police during the
October 2002,
shooting spree. A
judge ruled
Wednesday that
the 17-year-old
sniper suspect can
be tried as an
adult, malting him
eligible for the
death penalty.


Courts: Indictment marks official transfer of case
to adult court, making suspect eligible for death


A grand jury indicted 17»
year-old Lee Boyd Malvo on
two counts of capital murder
in last fall's sniper shootings.
setting the stage for a death
penalty trial.

The indictment. issued
Tuesday and made public
Wednesday. also includes one
count of using a firearm in a
murder. Both capital murder
counts stem from the Oct. 14
slaying of FBI agent Linda

The indictment officially
marks the transfer of Mal
vo's case to adult court. A ju»
venile court judge ruled last

week that Malvo could be
tried as an adult. making
him eligible for the death
penalty if convicted of capi-
tal murder.

His arraignment has not
been scheduled.

Malvo and John Allen
Muhammad. 42. are accused
of killing 13 people and
wounding five in Alabama.
Georgia. Louisiana. Mary-
land. Virginia and Washing—
ton. D.C. They are being
tried first in Virginia be-
cause its laws allow the best
opportunities for the death

The grand jury granted

Fairfax County Common
wealth‘s Attorney Robert F
Horan's request for capital
murder indictments under
two statutes: one prohibiting
the killing of more than one
person in a three~year peri-
od. and an anti-terrorism

Horan said he expects
Malvo‘s lawyers to file pretri-
al motions “by the ton.“ but
he believes the trial could be-
gin this summer.

Defense lawyer Thomas
Walsh said a summer court
date would be too soon. He
said the defense has been
given only a slight notion of
the prosecution‘s evidence
and has not yet been able to
hire its own experts.

"We‘ve been basically


:- a

given no resources here."
Walsh said.

Also Tuesday. a judge
dismissed efforts by Malvo‘s
guardian to obtain police
documents about the deadly
shooting spree.

The guardian. Todd Pe-
tit. argued that a provision
in juvenile law gave him the
right to seek a wide range of
records from police and oth-
er agencies that had docu-
ments about Malvo. Prosecu-
tors contend the information
was being sought premature-
ly before the trial.

Muhammad is scheduled
to go on trial in October in
neighboring Prince William
County for the slaying of
