in slaying

By Justin Willis
Staff Writer

Questions surrounding the mysterious death of UK
architecture professor Pete Pinney may be closer to
being answered.

A man was arrested Nov. 5 and
charged by the Lexington Police with
unlawful use ofa credit device.

“There is a chance it came from
Pinney," said Captain john Potts, 3
Lexington police spokesman. He
would not say if the credit device was
in Pinney's name, but he did confirm
it was somehow related to Pinney.

“You can have someone’s credit
card, but that doesn’t mean that you’ve
committed homicide,” Potts said.

Potts would not identify the man’s
name. But said he is still in custody.

Although police would not confirm
last night that there is a connection to
the case, District Court records show
there was only one fraudulent use of a
credit card arrest made on Nov. 5.

Paul Barnett, of Lexington, was
arrested for attempting 12 withdrawals
with a credit card from an ATM machine at 866 High
Street. Barnett is being held in the Fayette County
Detention Center on $10,000 bond until his full
arraignment Thursday.

VVhen asked if the same man was somehow
involved with the homicide, Potts said, “1 don’t know.
Until we do know, we can't say."

Pinney‘s body was discovered eight days ago beside
Cleveland Road in southeastern Fayette County. Pin—
ney, a UK professor for more than 30 years, was killed
by blunt force to the head and neck, according to the
Lexington Coroner’s Office.

Duct tape was found at the scene. Pinney’s posses—
sions included his keys and a credit card.

Although it is believed that Pinney was killed by
more than one person, no one is presently charged
with the homicide. Pinney, with an estimated weight
of 250 pounds, was found approximately eight feet off
the road when a passing motorist discovered the body





around 6:30 a.m.

During a news conference on Nov. 4, Lt. William
Fockele of the Lexington Police said he believed more

Work on two major campus
projects may occur soon.

Very soon.

Construction to add 8,000
benchback seats and close in
Commonwealth Stadium may
begin as early as next fall, con-
struction officials said yesterday.

Preliminary plans indicate that
construction will begin after the
football season next year, said Jack
Miller, senior project manager of
Capital Construction.

“We may be able to do some
construction around the perime-
ter,” he said, "but major construc-
tion won't start until after the last
home game of the 1998 season.”

Four construction management
firms will be interviewed Nov. 13
for the roject, said Ken Clevi—
dence, director of Procurement
and Construction Divisions.

The construction management
firms under consideration are
Bovis, Inc. from Princeton, N.j.;
Beers Construction from Atlanta;
Turner Construction from
Cincinnati; and Huber, Hunt and
Nichols from Indianapolis.

Design firms to be interviewed
Nov. 19 are HKS, Inc. from Dallas,
and HNTB from Kansas City,
Mo., which studied the feasibility of
an on-campus arena this past year.

The department will ask the
consultant to consider eventually
making all seats benchback.

The entrance facing
Nicholasville Road will be reno-

“Yeah, it’s true," Turner said.
“But I think I've improved on it a
lot and gotten more vocal this sea-
son. Hopefully as the year goes
on, I II become the leader (Smith)
wants me to be.”

Turner as a vocal leader? To
some, it may seem like a miscast
role. But for Turner, the mild-
mannered temperament he has
displayed on the court since his
arrival was just the role he felt was
most appropriate for the situation.

“I came in and there were a lot
of older people here,” Turner

“For some reason, I felt it
wasn’t right for me to tell the
older guys what to do and et on
them, in some cases, ‘ they
weren’t playing hard."

Now that Turner has become
one of the older guys himself, will
his role change?

“I think it will be different this
season,” Turner said. “I've real-
ized realized that (point guard) is
mV position and (being Vocal) is
11in job. If I want to he a leader
that 5 what I haVe to do.”

“He's definitely quiet," forward
Scott Padgett said. “But the rea—
son coach wants him to be more
Vocal is because he’s the one that
sets up the offense. I rcallV think
he s gotten more Vocal mm the
past few weeks and I think he s a
great leader."

Plclis, lull-mm and videotape

After Saturday’s Blue-VVhite
scrimmage, Smith was concerned
with his team’s performance on

the defensive end.

“After evaluating the film yes-
terday of our (scrimmage), what
you saw was that you’re never as
good as you think you are and
you’ re never as bad as you think
you are,’ ’Smith said.

“So it will be interesting to see
how we need to improve on many
areas — especially in the defensive
area.” _

Padgett agreed with the critical
analysis of the scrimmage, saying:
"It turned into a street game.
There was a lot of one-on-one
and that’s not how we’re supposed


“But I think we’ll come out and
play better (tonight),” Padgett
added “because we re playing
against another team.”

Tonight 5 opponent, a team
comprised of former colle e play—
ers based In Richmond, 21., will
provide the Cats 2 change to bat-
tle a squad of strangers rather than
another scrimmage against team—

But for Smith, the faces will
still be familiar.

Four of Court Authority’s play-
ers attended Virginia Common-
wealth, including two players
(Edmund Sherod and Calvin
Duncan) who played for Smith
while he was an assistant with the

“I know all these guys pretty
well, so it will be strange coachin

Ver 900 Votes go out this

week to members of the

media across the country
who will vote the most prized indi—
vidual award in collegiate football
~~ the Heisman Trophy.

TheJohn \Y. Heisman Memo-
rial Trophy Award is given annu—
allV to the nation's most outstand—
ing college football plaV er by the
Downtown Athletic C Iub of New
York In December. Most out—
standing is supposed to mean the
nation’s best all—around player, not
most valuable.

\Yith the passing of
judgment Day in college
football this past Saturday,
the Heisman picture is
began to take some sort of
shape while recognizing
that there is still more
football to be played.

Here’s a look at a few '
of the top contenders:


tcrback Brian Griese, his third
scoring play of the year.

He has yet to strike a pose like
cit—Heisman winner and fellow
\Yolverine, wide receiver
Desmond Howard, when he won
the award in 1992.

The fact that VVoodson plays
on defense and doesn’t handle the
football on every play like a quar—
terback or running back will be the
one reason he might win it.

VPeyton Manning (Tennessee,
QB, Sr.)

Manning has virtually been
handed the award since
announcing last March that
he would return for his
senior season in Knoxville.

In l995, Manning fin-
ished sixth in the balloting,
and last year he was eighth

watching him this weekend,
he may indeed be the best QB.
After a rough game in the 22—7

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Uni—
versity President Lee Bollinger sat
on his bed watching the Michi-

an-Penn State game with his wife

aturday night when more than
1,000 University students hurdled
his bushes, climbed the trees,
crammed onto his lawn and began
screaming his name.

As the crowd mounted the
steps of the white house shouting
“We want Lee,” Bollinger
emerged and invited the students
in —— making the President’s
house the home of the largest
post$ame party on campus.

“ ou can stay here as long as
you want and come inside,”
Bollinger said, huggin and
embracing students in celeiration

of the Michigan victory.

The swarm of students pushed
through the small door of 815
South University Ave. Hundreds
of students packed into every room
of the house, including Bollindger’s


bedroom, living room and s


Kinesiology sophomore Bob
Lehrer made himself at home in

Bollinger's bedroom.

“I sat on Lee Bollinger’s bed and
was watching football on TV,"
Lehrer said. “I called from his phone
to my answering machine and left a

message. He gave me a hug, and on

the way out he said he loved us all.”

Bollinger, who had watched the
frenzied students sprint down
toward the
house, said he was concerned that
the celebration would mirror the
recent riots at Michigan State

South University

University after the
defeated \Vestern Michigan.

“I didn't know what the crowd
was like,” Bollinger said. “I was
worried about that, but it all turned
out all right. It was wonderful."

Students said they did not want
to cause violence or destruction #
they simply wanted to party with
the president and celebrate the
victory peacefully.

“He‘s a great guy," said LSA
sophomore Jason Ragnick. “1 Te
let us arty in his house. \Ve’re
not maliing violence. \Ve‘re party-
ing with the president."

The students then ran to the
quietest place on campus, the Law
Library, shouting and chanting
“The Victors” while tuba players
followed closely behind.

The Anti Arbor Police Depart—
ment and the Department of Pub-
lic Safety said there were no
arrests made last night.

Although students blocked the

roads for about an hour, the
motorists were not disturbed by
the inconvenience of having to
turn away front campus.

“\Ve'll have to take a detour,"
said music seniorjames Kerr, as he
tried to navigate down South Lini-
versity. “It's not a problem,
though, considering the occasion."

Bollinger said nothing in the
house was stolen or broken. A
number of students, however,
claitned to have stolen bottles of
beer from the refrigerator.

“You don’t steal from the presi-
dent," Lehrer said, “you buy beer
for the president."

History professor Nicholas
Steneck, who teaches a class about
L'niversity history, said the presi—
dent's house has not welcomed
the entire student body since Har—

UK’s recreation facilities
became the target of student
concerns after a Recreations
Committee found that cam us
facilities ranked well be ow
benchmark and in-state schools.

This finding played an
important role in President
Charles Wethington moving
the project to the current bien-
nium, Cruz said.

"‘There’s a drastic need to
improve our campus recreation
facilities, and I think now both
the administration and the stu-
dents realize this is a concern,”
she said. “I don’t think anybody
in the University likes to see us
rank low. It’s embarrassing ”

Cruz, Stephens and Pieratt
will visit Vanderbilt University
in Nashville tomorrow “to see
what we want in our new Seaton
Center and to see what we can
do to improve,” she said.

Committee members might
also go to the University of Geor-
gia to see the school’s new recre—
ation center, which Cruz esti-
mates cost $30 million.

Sen. S aughnessy said.

With the estimated transfer of
funds, by 2004 the lottery’s gen-

The raging floods of WW7
brought on debate that such
severe weather events are the
first signs of a changing climate.

In his book The [It'lll is ()n
(:\ddison \\'cs‘lcy. l‘l‘l7),
Pulitzer Prize-shinning reporter
Ross (ielbspan said the :\mcri—
can public has been misled by a
“campaign of disinformation"
on the topic supported by oil
and coal interests.

(iclbspan will speak at 8 p.in.
Monday at the Singletary Center
for The Arts. The event is free.

(ielbspan will discuss about
all aspects of climate change.
The problem‘s reach includes
concerns as diverse as driving
patterns, agriculture, food sup—
ply and infectious diseases.

“There isn't really an area it
doesn't touch," said Trista (Ilaxon.
fonner president ofthe Sierrans.

People are confused about the
topic, she said. including the
campus community. A
widespread belief is global cli-
mate change is still in question.

In reality. she said, it's no
longer a theory. The 3,500 scien-
tists who make up the Intergov-
ernmental Panel on Climate
Change are calling for 60 to 70
percent reductions of rreenhouse
emissions to stabilize t e clitnate.

Some scientists disagree on the
issue. (ielbspan said in an inter-
view. But, he said, much ofthe dis—
sent comes from about 12 scien—
tists who are influenced by money
from coal and oil companies.

liven if climate change weren’t

involved, Claxon said, more effi-
cient use of energy resources
would still benefit industry
because it would save money.
