Ragland files motion after $63 million verdict

1994 on Woodland Ave. Ragland
was convicted of tnurder in 2002.
but that conviction was later over—

Ragland and his attomeys
did not attend the first civil trial for

the wrongful death suit: Ragland's
attorney Steven Romines told the
Kernel in an Aug. 27 article that
they felt it wasn’t necessary
to argue the case.

“The jury decided
based on the guilty plea
that liability was deter-
mined." Romines said in
the article. "We didn‘t feel
it was necessary to contest
that issue. Whatever (the
jury) said was fine with

The motion is not nec—
essarily to get a new trial.
Romines said. but it is procedural to
change the amount awarded to the
DiGiuro family.


“Punitive damages by law do
not exceed compensatory damages
by a multiple of 10. In this case they
were multiplied by 20,"
Romines said.

too much money is unfounded.

trial. Ragland and his attomeys of—

DiGiuro family.

A judge will review the motion
and then could decide to change the

amount of the verdict or let the deci-

Tyler Montell‘s proposal for a bill
eliminating sales tax on textbooks.

in the Sept. 2 issue of the Kernel.
Montell said he had pre«fi|ed a no-
tion fora bill that would allow book-
stores to sell textbooks without sales

in 1978 Kentucky passed a statue
stating that textbooks and related
course materials purchased for use at a
non—profit educational institution were
excizipi from sales tax. tKRS 139.480)

“Out of all the people we talked to.
no one knew Kentucky already did
this." Montell said. "Even legislators
said this was something they wanted
to be a pan of."

The 1978 law allowed the UK
ovs'ned bookstore to sell textbooks
without sales on. btit not privately
owned bookstores like Kennedy Book-
store or Wildcat 'l‘cxtbooks.

being penalized." Behr said. “So in

saying that it was unfair."

and now private and nonprofit hlhl’

required cotirsc materials without sales

Two llK students and a Kernel
adviser were released Wednesday
after being arrested on felony riot»
ing charges two days earlier at the
Republican National Convention.

Kentucky Kernel photographers
Ed Matthews. at joumalism senior.
and Britney McIntosh. a joumalism
sophomore. and Kernel photo advis«
er Jim Winn were detained at the
Ramsey County Adult Detention
(‘enter in St. Paul. Minn. They were
not covering the event for the Ker-
nel. but were there on their own ac—
cottnts. said editor in chief Brad

Matthews. McIntosh and Winn
were released Without being charged
With a crime. however charges are
pending further investigation. ac»

cording to jail officials.

All three were photographing
protests of the convention. said
Matthews. although they were not
on assignment for the Kernel in

As the three took photographs
around the hotel where Republican
National (‘onvention delegates were
staying. riot guards were pushing
back the crowd. The guards then her
gan throwing cherry bombs.
MattheWs said.

Matthews and Mclntosh were
together and tried to break from the
crowd as they took pictures. he said.
but it was unsuccessful.

"It was crazy. People were run»
ntng left and right. You'd turn
around. and there‘d be a line of cops
coming from one direction."
Matthew's said. “You‘d turn back




around and there would be cops on
bikes coming in the other direction "

Matthews said 'during the arrest.
police confiscated all of his and
McIntosh‘s belongings. which they
wrll be able to pick tip in Minnesota
on Monday. The only thing he had
when he was released was hrs ID
card and debit card. which he tucked
in his shoe beforc the protest.

and Mclntosh's arrest was not war-
ranted. hc is concerned that they
will be charged along Wllh the pro»

"They definitely don't have
\ ideo of me throwmg bricks or any-
thing." he said, “So while there is a
small fear. l‘m not too won'ted we‘ll
be charged."

The three photographers will not
be treated any differently from the

others u ho were attested because
they were documenting the protests.
said Tom Walsh. the public informa-
tion officer for the St. Paul Police

“They were not credentialed

jotimalists." Walsh said. ”They were

not on an assignment."

Despite the trip resulting iii the
arrest. Matthews said he felt it was
part of his job as a joumalist.

“We were arrested for doing our

jobs as joumalists. so 1 think it's not

all for nothing.”

If convicted of felony rioting.
Winn. Matthews and Mclntosh
would receive a minimum sentence
of one year tn jail and have to pay a
minimum fine of $3.000.

doesn‘t really use his iPhone
for academic reasons outside
of e-iiiail.

“I‘m not really using it
for school work." (iaffney
said. “I might read a profes-

to respond to them."

(iaffney said the iPhone
has network issues that can‘t
be ignored.

“Its so fragile. and it
drops so many calls."
(iaffney said. “I can be sitting
in my apartment and not get

Internet it‘s slow, You can use
UK's Wi—Fi network. but if
you don't use \VI—Ifl. it just
goes through the phone. and
it's just too slow."

Gaffney said for these
reasons he wouldn‘t consider
upgrading to the 30 models.
and would not have gotten
his phone if it weren't a gift.

"I would have never
bought it." Gaffney said.

Musical duo
show to UK

By Kellie Oates

There really isn‘t any—
thing tasteful about musical
duo TASTiSKANK. Their
lyrics are shockingly blunt.
scandalous and hilariously
vulgar. and they top it off by
rocking high-heels and look—
ing fabulously risque. And
they‘re coming to UK.

“They are essentially
good girls gone had." said
Nigel Lepainka. the cultural
arts director for the Student
Activities Board.

The duo consists of
Broadway actresses Kate
Reinders. who played Glinda
the Good Witch I the musical
“Wicked." and Sarah
Litzsinger. who played Belle
in “Beauty and the Beast."

And these two women are
putting a twist on obscene
comedy and showrng the
world it isn‘t just men who
know how to be publicly per--

Lepainka said

get their message across in an
adult fashion while putting a
spin on traditional lyrics.

"Their songs are mature
in nature because. as they
claim. they are tired of being
these ‘innocent' girls." Lepi—
anka said.

With songs that feature
lines such as. “You were the
worst sex I ever had." and “I
heart dirty boys with no mon—
ey." TASTiSKANK was
deemed. according to their
MySpace page. "the rockin'
love child of Tenacious D and
the‘ Indigo Girls."

Lepianka said that the
SAB decided to bring
TASTiSKANK to campus af-
ter an unforgettable perform—
ance at SAB‘s national con-

“They were very ener—
getic. funny. and it seemed
like an event that would at-
tract LIK students for obvious

According to their My—
Space page. TASTISKANK
was nariicd as one of the
"Top 35 Sexiest New Yorke
er‘s" by the New York Post.
and their lyrics speak on be—
half of single women every-
where by discussing the trials
and tribulations of today‘s
dating scene.

TASTISKANK will per—
