BOARD OF REGENTS MEETING

Regents approve Employee Plus One Kevin Moser Daily Nebraskan In what many called an emotional day, the University of Nebraska Board of Regents approved a proposal during their Friday meeting that will extend benefits for domestic

partners of University of Nebraska employees. The proposal to implement Employee Plus One benefits for partners and their dependents will go into effect Jan. 1, 2013 and will extend benefits to both opposite-sex and samesex couples who are financially dependent on each other.

The University of NebraskaLincoln was the last school in the Big Ten to implement such benefits. NU President J.B. Milliken said he and the University of Nebraska chancellors agree the issue is crucial to recruit and retain talent. “We believe that it is appropriate for positioning the

university competitively,” Milliken said. “I also think it is absolutely the right thing to do for our employees.” The proposal to extend Plus One benefits to domestic partners was presented to the board in October 2011.

New Wells Fargo program eases monetary transactions Haley Dover Daily Nebraskan A new banking service offered by Wells Fargo and Bank of America allows members to transfer money in a safe and convenient way. The Send & Receive Money service launched on May 24 gives banking customers the option to send payments to other Wells Fargo and Bank of America customers using a recipient’s email address or mobile phone number. “This is a very positive service that we’re offering our customers,” said Angie Kaipust, spokesperson for Wells Fargo in Nebraska. “It’s very easy and customers don’t need to know account numbers to transfer.” Customers are starting to move away from paper-centric banking with cash and checks, Kaipust said. Wells Fargo has 2.1 million active online customers and 7.7 million mobile customers she said. “The main thing is, customers want options and convenience,” Kaipust added. “This is just another option for them to use.” With the service available to all Wells Fargo and Bank of America customers, University of Nebraska-Lincoln students have access to the service as well. Carolyn Clark, a junior marketing major, said she thinks the service will be useful as she plans a summer trip. “For my trip to Europe this summer, my boyfriend and I are splitting the cost of things and this service makes it easier to transfer the funds to one another,” she said. With such a service available to so many customers,

the issue of fraud may be a concern for some banking members. Kaipust said the service is completely secure. As with any Wells Fargo online account, any transactions made are covered by the online security guarantee. Accounts are protected using firewalls, encryption and the bank’s proven industry standards. Ian Schuster, a sophomore agriculture engineering major, said he’s still concerned about fraud. “I feel like there is a lot of potential for things to go wrong,” he said. “I don’t use Wells Fargo for much more than holding my money.” Gilbert Johnson, a sophomore mechanized systems major, agreed with Schuster saying he prefers using cash rather than a mobile account. “In person, I know (the money) gets there,” he said. “I know it went from hand to hand.” The safety and security of their customer’s accounts are the top priority for Wells Fargo, Kaipust said. Right now, the Send & Receive service is available only to Wells Fargo and Bank of America customers, but over time the service will be expanded and customers will be able to send and receive money to other banks as well. There is no cost to transfer money, only an online banking account is needed. Wells Fargo and Bank of America customers are able to send up to $750 daily, but after building a history of successful transfers, that balance can go up to $1,500 daily. Transfers can take anywhere from one to three days.

WARRIOR More than 20,000 participants battle the brutal elements in Nebraska’s first Warrior Dash Kevin Moser Daily Nebraskan Runners from all over Nebraska travelled to Louisville to face fire, mud and other obstacles for the state’s inaugural Warrior Dash. Warrior Dash, an international event touted as the world’s largest running series made its debut in Nebraska. The event is a 5K run that pits runners against multiple obstacles, including heights and fire. Warrior Dash is organized by a Chicago-based group, Red Frog Events. This year Red Frog sent 18 officials to Nebraska to manage the event. “It’s something different and a way for (runners) to release their inner warrior,” said race director Courtney Deimel. Although the event has been held all across the country, organizers said they were

particularly excited to bring it to Nebraska “We had an amazing response when we opened registration,” Deimel said. “You will see people of all ages.” Cassie Swanson, an Omaha resident, said the event was “a blast.” “I had so much fun,” she said. “The mud was the best.” This year Red Frog offered a special promotion to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Warriors who raised $250 or more for St. Jude’s received access to a VIP area with showers, bathrooms and food. “We’ve raised $2 million for St. Jude from January until this weekend,” Deimel said. Other Red Frog organizers added they more than doubled their fundraising goal. “It’s just amazing what we’ve raised,” Deimel said.

fiscal year. Although all the regents voted in favor of the increase, Regent Jim McClurg expressed his concern about keeping tuition low in the long term. “If we keep holding ourselves down and falling lower ... there is a point in time in which that seriously impacts the quality of programs,” McClurg said. However the other seven regents didn’t express Regent McClurg’s sentiments.

“I think that this is an arms race ... that is not winnable,” Regent Randolph Ferlic said. “As the commoditization of higher education takes place that we will find ourselves under more strain and unable to meet up with tuition increases.” NU President J.B. Milliken said the raise was an “exercise of restraint” at a time when state funding for NU has stayed flat for the last five years. “I believe the University of Nebraska across the system

continues to be an exceptional value for Nebraskans,” Milliken said. Milliken pointed out the tuition rate for resident undergraduates at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is 28 percent below the average of its peer institutions. “We are all interested in managing the cost and we will make reallocations in the budget next year to do that,” Milliken said. dailynebraskan.com

The proposal generated controversy with the inclusion of same-sex couples and proponents of both sides lined up to argue their points during the public hearing portion of the meeting. In an emotional statement, Helen Moore, a sociology professor at UNL, said without family health care benefits, she has struggled to make ends meet for herself and her partner of 37 years. “For the past 25 years I have spent my evenings and weekends scrubbing floors and walls and ceilings in small apartments,” Moore said. “The cost of living and working at UNL are very high. Please reduce the cost of the younger generations of scholars and families who will want to join us in the future.” Hannah Buell, a UNL alumna and member of the Nebraska Family Council said the decision would greatly affect students.

“The (policy) will have a similar impact on students’ decisions by communicating what types of personal relationships are deemed beneficial by the university,” Buell said. After public comments the board discussed their views on the decision and the implications it might have. Regent Bob Whitehouse said he believes age plays a factor in how these issues are viewed. “There is definitely a generational gap in the thinking in this area,” Whitehouse said. “I talked to young people and many, many, many of them talked to me — they don’t understand why this hasn’t happened before.” “I can tell you whatever the data is whatever the numbers are that it will be infinitely harder to manage this university if you don’t pass this,” added Harvey Perlman, the UNL Chancellor. Not all regents were supportive, however. Bob Phares said he doesn’t believe the decision

would impact the university negatively. “I’m not willing to accept the premise that we are a secondclass institution if we do not have this, or that we will become a second-class institution if we do not have this in the future,” Phares said. The regents passed the measure with a five to three vote. Tim Clare, Randolph Ferlic and Phares voted against the measure. Student presidents from the four University of Nebraska schools, UNL, University of Nebraska at Omaha, University of Nebraska Kearney and University of Nebraska Medical Center voted in support of the measure. Due to Board bylaws, student president votes don’t count toward the total. Supporters gathered outside the meeting room to celebrate and be together after the vote. “Just amazing,” Moore said, hugging a colleague. “This is so huge.” kevinmoser@dailynebraskan.com

Upsetting Plus One timeline overshadows Regents’ vote T

he Daily Nebraskan editorial board applauds the University of Nebraska Board of Regents’ approval of the Employee Plus One proposal, which will grant insurance benefits to same-sex and opposite-sex partners and their dependents. However, the timeframe for granting these benefits was embarrassing. By this spring, all four NU campuses’ student governments, chancellors and faculty senates had already endorsed the Plus One proposal. The Daily Nebraskan first supported the idea of Plus One benefits in December of 2010, when the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Faculty Senate passed a resolution in support of the benefits. After the Faculty Senate vote, UNL Chancellor Harvey Perlman said he supported benefits for domestic partners. The Association of Students of the University of Nebraska first passed a resolution supporting the plan in February 2011, and again voiced its support this past year. It took until this past October for J.B. Milliken, NU president, to propose the expansion of insurance benefits for the partners of university employees. At the time, both the University of Nebraska Kearney and UNL had already supported such a resolution, and the University of Nebraska at Omaha had plans to discuss the proposal. The vote on the proposal was tabled in both the fall and spring semesters. This is a major step forward for the university. Many schools across the country have adopted a similar benefits program, including all 11 other schools in the Big Ten. Health insurance benefits for employees and their families are an important factor when taking a job as well as deciding to stay at your current employer. Extending these benefits to cover all university employees will help retain talented and dedicated faculty and staff. To Regents Bob Phares, Tim Clare and Randy Ferlic: Frankly, your votes against the proposal are disappointing. Your actions have sent a message that the university only cares about some of its employees. If NU truly cares about its employees — all of its employees — the decision to provide health care to employees’ families should have been a no-brainer. The approval of Plus One benefits for university employees came at a critical time for Nebraska — in the past few months, both Omaha and Lincoln have passed anti-discrimination ordinances protecting members of the LGBT community. Both have received a considerable amount of backlash, a sign that support is needed now more than ever. This action was a positive step for NU and is wholeheartedly endorsed by the Daily Nebraskan. It is our hope that the Board of Regents’ support for all university employees will help foster an open and accepting environment on the four NU campuses, as well as the state.

Love the character, not the actor C

Bea Huff Daily Nebraskan

omic book fangirls are crazy. I should know because I’m one of them. We obsess over our favorite characters, dream up fantasy pairings and create fan art and fiction. But there are some people out there who give fangirls a bad name. The recent release of Marvel’s “The Avengers” movie has ignited the rise of the Loki fangirl. Normally, a spike in a character’s popularity after a movie doesn’t really bother me that much but there’s something about these Loki fangirls that rubs me the wrong way. Maybe it’s the fact that a l l

they know of Loki is what they have seen in the movies. That wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for the fact that they just fill in the missing information with whatever headcanon (one’s personal belief of what is true to the universe) they want instead of actually trying to find out more about the character. And of course there are the ones who like him just because they think Tom Hiddleston is sexy. I can understand an interest based on Hiddleston’s performance — he was great in “Thor” and simply chilling in “The Avengers” — but that’s different than liking a character because you want to bang the actor that plays him. Tumblr, the micro-blogging site that is a popular place for fan blogs, is oversaturated with Hiddleheads. A quick search through the Loki tag will reveal dozens of posts about Hiddleston, most of which have nothing to do with the character at all. In fact, it’s nearly impossible to find a post that’s actually about the character Loki. A sighting of comic book Loki there would be

like finding a unicorn grazing in your backyard: It’s probably not going to happen. But even that isn’t as grievous an offense as the habit they have developed of making excuses for Loki’s bad deeds. Loki fangirls live in a fantasy world where he is simply a misunderstood youth corrupted by Thanos and can be fixed with a long hug in their loving arms. False. Loki is a bad guy. He tried to destroy all of Jotunheim, the realm of the frost giants and kill his own people long before meeting Thanos. Not to mention all the other horrible deeds he has done throughout the decades as a comic baddie. Loki may be a bad guy but that doesn’t make him a bad character. In fact, some of the coolest characters are the villains. Magneto, Joker, Doctor Doom — all badasses. You know things are about to get crazy any time they show up. Loki is right up there with the best of them. He is the Asguardian god of mischief, a trickster who can manipulate

anyone and anything at will. If anything, Thanos just amplified the evil already inside of him. Making excuses for why Loki is evil undermines the reasons why he is such a compelling character. It’s his vendetta against his brother and the twisted ways that he uses his powers that makes him so interesting and terrifying. At one point in the Marvel comic “Ultimates,” Loki shifts all of reality, making everyone in the universe think Thor is just a crazy homeless man who thinks he is a god and when that doesn’t work, he unleashes a slew of demons and hell-beasts into the streets of Washington D.C. I don’t want to discourage anyone from being a fan — having passions and being inspired is great — but if you’re going to claim to love a character, love that character for who he or she is, not the actor that plays the character or the completely out–of-character headcanon that you’ve created for them. Besides, Tom Hiddleston isn’t even that sexy.

The Road

Path to College World Series intense, satisfying Lanny Holstein Daily Nebraskan The road to Omaha is different for every team. Some squads are high seeds and others are low, some host regionals and others travel. Mostly the favorites make it through the regionals but a group of gritty underdogs always emerges. This year is no different. For most, making it to college baseball’s brightest stage takes every bit of talent the teams have. The extensive and, at times, taxing double-elimination regional tournaments test the depth and resiliency of pitching staffs while the competitive edge drives players to fight through the long days. Emerging as one of only eight Omaha-bound teams from a national field of 64 is an impressive accomplishment. The road to Omaha pulls no punches. This year’s regional round took down a large number of the nation’s top baseball schools but left most of the heaviest favorites unscathed. Seven of the top eight national seeds made it through to the super regional round (Florida, UCLA, Florida State, Baylor, Oregon, LSU and South Carolina), but a handful of teams with heavy name value fell, including Rice, Cal State Fullerton, Clemson, Miami and Texas A&M. Another Omaha regular, Texas, didn’t make the field of 64 for the first time since 1998. The biggest surprise thus far has to be the lone No. 4 regionals seed to make the super regionals, Stony Brook. The Seawolves — one of only a handful of northern teams to make the super regional round — took the Coral Gables, Fla. regional by storm. The Seawolves beat their host, the Miami Hurricanes, in their opening game of the tournament before losing to the region’s No. 2 seed, Central Florida, in their second game. With their backs up against the wall, the Seawolves staved off elimination with

three straight wins, including back-toback victories over Central Florida to send the Knights packing. Stony Brook is headed to the Baton Rouge super regional and it should be dandy. It squares off against two teams that couldn’t possibly be more different. LSU coasted through its own regional and rides high as the national No. 7 seed. The Tigers were one of the top teams in the nation all season and probably don’t look at the Seawolves as much of a challenge. Fans in Omaha will be pleased with the result in Baton Rouge either way. If LSU rolls, there is always a large Tiger following that shows up in Omaha and if they fall, Stony Brook has the look of fan favorite. Remember the last time a regional No. 4 seed came to Omaha? When Fresno State did so in 2008 they garnered quite a following. Kent State and St. Johns each made this year’s super regional round as No. 3 seeds in their respective regionals, adding more underdog potential to this year’s tournament. South Carolina, the defending backto-back College World Series champion, has a real shot at making it a three-peat. The Gamecocks are through the regionals unscathed and match up with the Oklahoma Sooners in Columbia this weekend. Oklahoma will undoubtedly be a test for the Gamecocks but if they can make it through to Omaha, they have the firepower to finish on top. Ace Michael Roth, a standout performer in the CWS a year ago, returned to Columbia this season and is the owner of a 2.68 ERA. First baseman Christian Walker is also back with 11 homers on the season. No matter who makes it to Omaha, or even who wins the series this year, each of the tournament teams will remember the struggle. Only eight teams can end their seasons in the CWS, the other 56 teams end their seasons on the road to Omaha. LANNYHOLSTEIN@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM

Ballpark still needs time to grow on fans Lanny Holstein Daily Nebraskan TD Ameritrade Park Omaha is a nice ballpark. It really is. Omaha’s newest sports venue, which opened in 2011, has all the amenities. The park is home to a huge video screen and scoreboard, spacious seating, wide aisles and an open concourse that lets fans watch the game while they are up moving around the stadium. That is important, you know. How many home runs have you missed because you were getting your hot dog and peanuts? It has everything anyone could ask for in a baseball stadium, save for the one thing that matters most: memories. The new stadium is shiny and polished but it will be a long time before it attains the same status in the hearts of Omahans that Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium still holds. It will be a long time before the stadium captures the spirit and the pageantry that Rosenblatt embodied in its 61 years as host to the series. TD Ameritrade Park seems cold. It seems corporate. It lacks the down-home feel that Rosenblatt had, the neighborhood barbecue atmosphere. When walking through the gates at TD Ameritrade, it’s easy to see it’s clean, it’s spacious and it’s foreign. The park oozes perfection.

The concourse seems too wide and too open. It seems too comfortable, too neat. Where is the grime and the crammed quarters of Rosenblatt Stadium? Where is the support beam obstructing my view? Where is the uneven step that trips people as they walk up the stairs? Maybe all that stuff is bad. Maybe all that stuff needed to be changed. Still, all those faulty parts were aspects of Rosenblatt that fans grew to love. Nobody wants to sit behind a view-obstructing beam but fans tolerated it because they loved that stadium. They had memories in that stadium. They saw everything from underdogs winning to favorites falling apart. Rosenblatt had the magic moments that people remember it by. TD Ameritrade doesn’t yet have enough of that magic to create the same type of atmosphere. A large part of that is the newness factor. No one ever gets attached to anything right out of the box. It takes a few holes before that pair of blue jeans becomes your favorite. Likewise, it will take a few years and a few memories before TD Ameritrade becomes a fan favorite. It simply hasn’t had enough time. The new stadium needs some new traditions. It needs a few of its own quirks to truly become its own stadium. Rosenblatt had those things. The old stadium’s general admission line was

famous for stretching across the hill beyond its outfield walls and the series transformed 13th Street into a strip mall every June. There is no reason TD Ameritrade can’t create the same type of atmosphere that Rosenblatt did and keep a few of the old traditions. One classic College World Series staple, Zesto, brought its ice cream flavors over to the new location to do just that. TD Ameritrade’s new marks on the series will be the most interesting thing to watch. What new memories will be created there? What new rituals will we begin practicing there? Last season’s CWS — the first ever at the new park — saw a significant decline in excitement. The teams hit fewer home runs, and the games weren’t as close. Part of that is on the park — it’s more spacious and holds the ball down — but part of that is on the new BBCOR bats that players must use. The new bats exert less power than the old aluminum ones and keep scores lower. TD Ameritrade deserves a break for that one. Rosenblatt was a great home to the CWS for many years, but it’s time to let it go. What’s done is done. TD Ameritrade is the new home to the CWS, and it will be for quite some time. Give the park a chance. You’ll find it’s pretty nice. LANNYHOLSTEIN@DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM

Yoga Rocks the Park offers scenic stretching spot Kelsey Newman Daily Nebraskan Breathe in, breathe out. Take a moment to stretch, listen to live music and indulge in nature’s beauty. “We provide it all,” said Megan Rundle, a Yoga Rocks the Park operations manager in Denver. “Yoga can change your life for the better.” Yoga Rocks the Park is a summer-long wellness festival equipped with live music, professional instructors and organic food vendors. Omaha is hosting

its second season of the event for all ages and everyone is welcome. Yoga Rocks the Park began in Denver in 2009. It has also extended to five other cities in the United States, including Omaha. “Proudly, we also have a national(ly) recognized children’s program that is for children ages 3 to 10,” Rundle said. “It’s great that the entire family can participate.” Yoga has been around for 5,000 years. It is used to revive the body and to make room for an open mind, Rundle said. Yoga is an opportunity to step away

for an hour and find some inner peace because we know how life can be filled with stress, Rundle explained. People from all over are uniting together to create an atmosphere that you won’t find anywhere else, she added. On average, about 400 people attend Omaha’s event each week. “It is just becoming so popular, it’s spreading everywhere,” Rundle said. “Thousands of people are participating and the numbers just keep growing.” Rundle said that her favorite part of the event is seeing the community come together and

making lifelong friends while participating in this spiritual art. In addition to bringing the community together, Yoga Rocks the Park donates a percentage of its revenue to various nonprofit organizations chosen by the community. “You get a chance to see people smiling, laughing and promoting healthy living,” Rundle said. “We are making the world a better place.” The live performances include local talents as well as national musicians. At the conclusion of the workout, the live music continues to give participants a

chance to sample organic products along with other wellness promotions. Morgan Shoults, a senior advertising major, attends the yoga classes at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s recreation center once a month. “I haven’t had a chance to make it to Omaha yet but the event sounds like a awesome opportunity,” Shoults said. “I really hope that it will become big enough to be brought to Lincoln.” The event begins each Sunday at Midtown Crossing’s Turner Park at 4 p.m. The cost of the

event is $10 in advance and $15 at the park. “My friends and I are planning to go next Sunday and it will be beneficial for me to see what other healthy options are out there,” Shoults said. There are instructors from the community’s top studios and national instructors ready to help, regardless of the level of experience of the yogi, Rundle said. “Yoga is intimidating,” Rundle said. “But once you begin, it’s almost like a huge party where everyone is having a great time.”

Omaha offers more than exciting games during CWS

If you’re planning on being in Omaha for the College World Series, make sure you take full advantage of what the downtown area has to offer. Whether they’re chains or local businesses, Omaha has a variety of unique restaurants, shops and entertainment sources.

Restaurants/Bars

WheatFields

Eat the Worm

WheatFields is a restaurant/bakery combination located on the edge of the Old Market. While their Old Market Express location isn’t as large as its two other locations, it still offers sit-down service and great food. The menu focuses on standard Americana: sandwiches, burgers, wraps and salads. Wheatfields’ bakery offers fresh pastries, breads and other bakery items daily. The restaurant also offers a catering service if you need to feed a large crowd while in town.

Eat the Worm is a Mexican-themed casual bar and restaurant. While tacos and nachos are the norm, Eat the Worm includes standard bar fare like hot wings in its repertoire. Eat the Worm serves its tequila very seriously, offering an education to those who want to know more, like where in Mexico plants must be grown and how much Blue Weber Agave must be in each drink. The location is small, yet not claustrophobic or constricting. Eat the Worm is a great place for all your spicy, Mexican-themed alcohol needs.

Blue Sushi and Sake Bombers Lounge

Ted and Wally’s

For the sushi lovers out there, no place has sushi like Blue. While I am not partial to sushi, just about everyone I know in Omaha swears by this place. Sake Bombers Lounge is located on the second floor of the restaurant and carries the comfortable atmosphere of Blue with it. Even if you don’t care for sushi, the environment at the bar and Sake Bombers Lounge makes for a great place to hang out with friends. Make sure you check out the daily happy hour specials to make dining there easier on the wallet.

Stop by Ted and Wally’s after any meal for a sweet treat. Ice cream flavors are homemade daily and include just about anything you can imagine as an ice cream (I once tasted a Guinness flavor, it was mediocre at best). Much like Lincoln’s Ivanna Cone, you can get waffle and sugar cones, as well as ice cream floats and other delicious cold treats. After hours the ice cream shop’s narrow sitting room heats up as it becomes a mosh pit for punk and indie rock bands holding shows there. If that’s not your game, the ice cream alone is good enough for any reasonable patron.

Nomad Lounge

Aroma’s Coffee Shop and Bliss Old Market Bakery

The Nomad Lounge is a nice spot to get your drink on. The design and layout alone is interesting to look at: High ceilings, dark curtains and currency collage tables work together to make this lounge just plain cool. The bar is located in the center of the large space, serving patrons at 360 degrees. If you’re lucky you’ll visit during the run of a local artist’s art show, which are always worth checking out. It is well worth the walk down a hill from the stadium to have a seat on one of the comfy couches that line the walls of this hip establishment.

1013 Jones St. www.nomadlounge.com 402.884.1231

Aroma’s is a coffee shop located on the same block as Nomad Lounge. This place is great for all your caffeine needs. The environment is much like any other local coffee joint with brick walls, local art and products adorning those walls and tables full of busy college students working on their term papers. Aroma’s is worth the travel for the sole purpose of its in-house bakery, Bliss Old Market Bakery. The delectable scents of espresso and baked goods mix to create a deliciously comfortable environment. Try an iced white mocha with soy and your favorite muffin.

Homer’s

Urban Outfitters

No longer located in Lincoln, Homer’s has downsized to only one location in the Old Market area of downtown Omaha. Homer’s sells new and used records, CDs, movies and random trinkets. It even keeps a small section of thrift clothing stocked. Homer’s is a great source for new and used vinyl, offering every genre under the sun. The store also carries a great selection of local and regional music. Homer’s also has supplies for maintaining record players, such as needles and other kits to ensure your player won’t stop serenading you any time soon. With the recent surge in popularity in vinyl records, Homer’s is a must for any music lover.

Appropriately located right next door to American Apparel is Urban Outfitters. Full of ironic T-shirts, art-themed coffee table books and other miscellaneous items, Urban Outfitters honestly sets itself out to do what its title suggests: Outfit people for an urban environment. If you can imagine what a hipster looks like, you can find that look here. But beyond the seemingly ridiculous fashion lies a genuine variety store, selling products that you can’t otherwise find in Nebraska. Lomography cameras, iron-on T-shirts, books and whimsical household products from Fred are among the many different products you can find at this store.

Drastic Plastic

American Apparel

Drastic Plastic is a record shop that has a vast selection of trinkets and clothing. Much like Homers, Drastic Plastic offers vinyl records and CDs. Drastic Plastic’s line of clothing and accessories, especially their Nebraskathemed shirts and accessories, make them a unique, must-visit location. Find shirts and hats with slogans like “I Steak Omaha” and illustrations such as Miller High Life parody logos. If you can’t afford a trip to Omaha for one of these T-shirts, have no fear; they’re also available at their online retail store.

American Apparel isn’t shy about the fact their products are made sweatshop-free environments, and in America. Signs in the store boast this fact and clerks will tell you. Most of their clothing is simple and without branding or designs printed on them, outside the occasional politically laced “Legalize _____” shirt. Every color of the rainbow is present in their catalog, half of which I hadn’t seen until walking through their doors. Be warned: Their clothing tends to run a bit small, so you might need a full size or two larger than what your normally wear.

Entertainment, etc.

Big Brain

Film Streams

Big Brain is a huge name in the Nebraska tattooing and piercing community. If you don’t believe me, ask your nearest tattoo aficionado. Chances are he or she will agree because of the quality of the artists and staff. The artists at Big Brain are experienced and capable of working in a variety of styles and techniques. Take a look at the profiles for each artist and prepare to be impressed. Big Brain also offers just about any piercing you can imagine — surface, anchors and so much more. If it’s skin, they can put a ring in it or through it. Like any tattoo or piercing, make sure you take care of it afterward and know what you’re getting yourself into beforehand.

Film Streams is a nonprofit organization aimed at enhancing Omaha’s cultural environment through film as an art form. It’s located in the Saddle Creek Records development in downtown Omaha near TD Ameritrade Park. Film Streams has two screens and regularly shows both contemporary and classical films, ranging from documentaries to comedies to thrillers. Film Streams will often have themed series where they play a variety of films in a certain genre, such as their ongoing noir series. Currently showing in the theatre is “Marley,” a documentary about legendary reggae artist Bob Marley, produced with help from his family and estate. Film Streams offers a entertaining break in the CWS routine.

Gene Leahy Mall The Gene Leahy Mall is by no means a mall by normal suburban standards. Instead, it’s a park

full of public sculpture and artisan benches. Take a stroll through the park during a stressful day at the College World Series and take in the creative wonder of the benches designed by local artists. The lake is known to play host to a variety of animal life, including swans and geese. Sick of sitting still? Try sliding. The park is known for its large slides. Fun for any kid or kid at heart, the slides offer a break in an otherwise urban environment. If you decide to give in to your inner child, try sitting on a piece of cardboard or wax paper (it’s much more fun that way).

WILD SIDE

As No. 1 zoo in the country, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo offers educational, exciting adventures that delight all ages story by Amy Kenyon | photos courtesy of Henry Doorly Zoo

Years of loaded strollers, family picnics, thousands of pictures and generations of visitors has made Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium a part of the Omaha community. The zoo is constantly being updated and renovated. Adult guests come to visit the sites of fond memories and young guests wander through it for the first time. While all exhibits are worth a visit, the following exhibits are 10 of the most memorable:

SEA LIONS

Famously housed in a historic public swimming pool, the sea lions are an entertaining bunch. Whether it’s a show, feedings, new pups or the animals just being lively, something is always happening by the sea lions. “It was another great exhibit for the kids,” said Julianna Schmid, a mother from Emporia, Kan. This was her first time at the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium with her family and she was impressed by its appeal to both herself and to her young son.

SCOTT AQUARIUM

One of the oldest and most loved buildings at Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium, the Scott Aquarium was recently remodeled to attract a new audience. “It’s one of the older buildings, so the cosmetics of it needed an update,” Goorman said. The renovation left the layout of the aquarium primarily unchanged and it continues to include a large group of penguins, a shark tunnel and several display tanks. The interior was updated to look more modern. It has several tanks, including a touch tank where visitors can interact with several smaller creatures.

DESERT DOME/KINGDOMS OF THE NIGHT CAT COMPLEX

The Cat Complex combines indoor and outdoor viewing areas to add to the comfort of the animals. Various species of big cats from around the world are housed here, some are in pairs but many are alone. Though the cats are usually sleeping or pacing, their size and strength are impressive. “It’s pretty amazing to watch. Walk in and see how powerful they are,” said Kelsey Zimmerman , a nurse from Omaha.

LIED JUNGLE

Another older but well maintained exhibit is the Lied Jungle. “It is one of the most popular exhibits,” Gorman said. The large windows in the Tree Top Cafe allow guests to view the upper levels of the jungle while they stop for lunch. The jungle itself has two paths. On the upper walkway, guests easily view the plants and meet various tree-dwelling monkeys at eye-level. The guests walk the jungle floor and gain a more intimate view of the jungle wildlife on the lower path.

SKYFARI

Inexpensive, gentle and relaxing, the Skyfari is a pleasant way to get to the back of the zoo. Guests soar over several groups of animals including giraffes and rhinoceroses. Beverly Gorman, a zoo employee, said the elephants will soon be added to this list. “We’re hoping to have it done in the next three to five years,” she said. From the Skyfari, it’s clear how large the zoo is and how many ways it can grow.

KOI BRIDGE

Though more of a walkway than an exhibit, the Koi Bridge has become its own attraction. For a quarter guests can buy pellets to toss to the fish and birds below. Out of the sun and over the water, the bridge is a place for guests to stop and interact with the animals. “It’s very interactive. Just by being there you can tell kids love it,” said Amanda Crawford, a University of Nebraska-Lincoln student from LaVista, Neb.

Omaha natives may remember when the Desert Dome was first constructed in March 2002 and became a prominent aspect of the Omaha skyline. The dome continues to be very hot and very sandy. Gradual curving paths lead guests through a tour of various plant and animal species. Kingdoms of the Night is housed beneath the Desert Dome and introduces visitors to darker and more mysterious regions. These kingdoms include creatures such as bats, naked mole rats and an albino alligator. “It’s cool that they built something directly underneath (the dome). You get out of the sun and it feels very nice,” Crawford said.

RED BARN PARK CHILDREN’S AREA

The Children’s Area contains the same red barn and petting area it has for years. These attractions provide children with educational material and more hands-on contact with the animals. Statues of extinct species and a fossil dig site were recently added to this area. “I think it’s neat that they show fossils of the past because kids don’t see that too often,” Zimmerman said. While the updates add sophistication, the area remains to be primarily designed for younger children.

HUBBARD GORILLA VALLEY GARDEN OF THE SENSES

Generations of children (and children at heart) have taken pictures on the metal statues and by the hanging flowers in the Garden of the Senses. The plants and birds in this relaxing place require a considerable amount of care. Employees can guide guests through this attraction.

Though an older exhibit, the Gorilla Valley has been remodeled to a pleasant indoor pathway melding the older and newer sections. Crawford said she’s happy with the layout. “I like how they made this exhibit an actual building. They added scientific information so kids have another opportunity to learn,” Crawford added.
