was indicative of the APC’s caution with regard to how they be carried out.” Perlman’s set of reductions included: • Withholding 1 percent of the anticipated 3 percent salary increase pool in order to initially cover the majority of the budget shortfall. This will be institution wide and accounts to $3.2 million. • Reducing discretionary resources for strategic initiatives from the Chancellor ’s Office’s budget by $318,226. • Eliminating $200,000 from the Office of the Senior Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs’ support for the summer session programs. • Reducing support of the Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources’ Educational Media by $406,000. •Saving $100,000 by reducing campus floor burnishing from

The committee had doubts about the projected salary cuts and salary increase reductions, but Lahey said he couldn’t be sure about the exact concerns because it was a private ballot. During the open-door session, Lahey said the committee’s questions were thoroughly vetted and answered.
“Mostly what we had to discuss was the salary reduction across the board,” Lahey said. “I know that of interest to the students is the student fees being used on judiciary affairs. Juan Franco laid out his opinions about that and the student representative indicated that he had discussed this with Vice Chancellor Franco and had come to an agreement with him.” NEWS@ DAILYNEBRASKAN.com

Ryan Workman works on the ongoing P Street construction on Monday afternoon. The downtown construction is a part of the Downtown Lincoln Master Plan.
hen students return to campus in the fall, P Street construction should be nearly finished. As part of the Downtown Lincoln Master Plan in 2005, the street is becoming a retail corridor to make the area friendlier to visitors and shoppers. Construction was initially slowed in the first opening area around the Marcus Lincoln Grand Cinema movie theater. Current construction is on schedule for now until the end of the project Dave Landis, director of Urban
Development, said. Street construction is planned to be completed by late August. The main goals of the project are to improve conditions for pedestrians and bicyclists, enhance roadways for motorized transit, enhance environmental integrity and encourage local economic growth and investment for the P Street area. “With them extending sidewalks and stuff we’re actually looking to put in an outside seating area,” said Chancey Sazama, manager of Five Guys at P and 13th streets.
“P Street is going to be a good project for us because they are trying to bring more people down here by making it more of a popular area. It’s going to benefit us.” Thirty-two restaurants and bars, 14 retail shops, two museums and a movie theater sit along P Street. Because of the large amount of construction, some businesses have noticed a slight change in their normal business. “It’s been a little slower than usual, but nothing we didn’t expect when they told us about the project,” said Hannah Demma,

SVO plans move to larger office Mara Klecker DN With the addition of four Veterans Affairs work-study students this semester, the Student Veteran Organization, or SVO, has worked to gain visibility and expand services offered to oncampus military students. The SVO has struggled to be visible and accessible, but this semester brought some long-anticipated changes. The four students were able to staff the office each weekday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., an improvement from past semesters when the office wasn’t staffed all but maybe four hours a week. And coming in June, SVO will have a new office, twice as big as the current space. The new office will be on the third floor of the Nebraska Union, near the LGBTQ resource center. Expanding the space was one of the primary goals of the work-study students, and it’s an important milestone, said Wayne Jeppesen, a current
work-study student and junior electrical engineering major. “We just really want to help the veterans here, and this will give us better space for that,” he said. The new office will have room with chairs where student veterans can come up and study, chat or meet new people. Jeppesen and the other workstudy students hope to see those chairs full. But first people have to know about the office and its mission. “We still just need to get people interested, get our name out there,” he said. To do that, SVO has been putting out a bimonthly newsletter and had a booth at the Big Red Challenge, an obstacle race last week that raised money for wounded veterans. Even with the expanded office hours, SVO sees only about two visitors a week to its office.

staff report DN Each semester, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department tries to introduce new tactics and technologies to help them solve crimes more efficiently. This coming fall semester will be no exception. Koan Nissen, education and personnel officer with UNLPD, said the department will introduce a new three-month-long training course for UNL students, faculty and staff to allow them to step into the shoes of UNLPD officers. Nissen said the program, called a citizen’s academy, will take place for a few hours each week from the beginning of the school year through mid-November. “It’ll be free education about how policing works,” Nissen said. The department will first have to figure out if it’ll be able to generate enough interest, but Nissen said he’s hopeful. “Our ultimate goal is to be able to teach them to be able to see what we see,” Nissen said. “They’ll be able to learn what we learn and, hopefully, walk away better educated.” The course will be similar to what police officers take while in a police academy. The class will be broken down into weekly topics that will follow the basic guidelines of a regular police academy. “For example, we’ll have one week where we teach about narcotics, and the next we’ll talk about K-9 units,” Nissen said. One of the main purposes of the training course is to help the UNL community relate better to
officers. “There’s a lot of different roles in law enforcement,” Nissen said. “We’re not jailers, we’re not prosecutors – we’re police officers.” Nissen said he thinks this will be unique opportunity to see the other side of the department. One other development the department plans to have in place next semester is a new system to digitally store evidence. Much evidence is currently stored digitally, but this new system would make the information more accessible for those who need it. “It’ll be a more secure system and a better way to manage digital evidence, like photos,” Nissen said. He said the system will make it simpler for prosecutors and others working in legal departments to access the evidence. “All persons involved in a case should have that equal access,” Nissen said. New technology was also introduced to officers during this spring semester. Each UNLPD officer began wearing small body cameras on the front of their uniforms. The cameras record both video and audio. Nissen said the officers use the cameras to record things such as interviews, conversations with victims and crime scenes. “It’s something that’s been a big change for officers’ everyday lives,” Nissen said. The most significant and helpful piece of technology the department acquired this school year is the InterAct mobile system, Nissen said. The InterAct system connects

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department had a “fairly calm” semester with average reports of crimes such as theft and assault, education and personnel officer Koan Nissen said. officers’ cruisers to other officers in real time. It also offers access to a crime statistics database, which officers can use to check things such as license plates or arrest warrants. The system is also connected to UNL’s dispatch center for emergency calls, as well as to the Lincoln Police Department’s dispatch center. The department sees its fair
share of crime each semester. However, this semester was fairly quiet, Nissen said. “There’s not any one crime that particularly stands out,” he said. “This semester was actually fairly calm.” Aside from a few assaults, Nissen said the most prominent cases are usually sexual assaults. Four cases of sexual assault
were reported to UNLPD during the past year, two of them taking place within the last week. “Anytime there’s a report of sexual assault, it really affects the community,” Nissen said. The major trends this semester revolved around alcohol and drugrelated arrests, Nissen said. news@ dailynebraskan.com
ASUN reflects on highs, lows of 2013-2014

REECE RISTAU DN Forty-seven pages. That’s how much reading it would take to understand the full impact student government had on students this year, Marlene Beyke said. Beyke, director of the Association of Students of the University of Nebraska, said there are 47 pages in ASUN’s year-end report and it shows the amount of time and work students dedicated. The year for ASUN was filled with highs and lows, with some changes big and others little. From hosting a 9/11 memorial to Homecoming Week; from a senator using racial slurs to the “Not Here, Not Now, Not Ever!” campaign; from another year of budgets planned to Earthstock, it was a busy year for the students who represent the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
ASUN President Kevin Knudson, a junior political science major, will lead the student government next year along with Internal Vice President Grant Garrison, a junior psychology and biology major, and External Vice President
Christina Guthmann, a junior international business major. These new executives ran as the uncontested Ignite for ASUN party. Their platforms included keeping students’ first minor-inpossession charges within the university, solidifying UNL’s Good Samaritan policy, hosting townhall-style meetings and connecting students with ASUN. Aside from these goals, Knudson said he’s going to look to other schools to address issues. “We do occasional meetings with the rest of the student governments of the Big Ten, and something on the radar there that I don’t think we have seen too much movement from our student government are the issues of mental health and sexual assault,” Knudson said. “Those are two big issues we’re going to try to make some headway with on UNL’s campus.” Knudson said he wants to work with UNL’s Counseling and Psychological Services. He said he wants to both promote the fact that students get three free visits, as well as attempt to remove the stigma behind seeking help from mental health professionals. Sexual assault on college campuses has made national headlines
recently, with the White House announcing Tuesday an action plan to help address the problem. Beyke said the next senate has a unique opportunity to focus on diversity. “I think we have a great opportunity with the amount of diversity we have on senate this year,” she said. “I think we’ll be looking at a lot of different programs that we haven’t looked at in the past. The opportunities are endless.”
ASUN gained attention from university administrators, local media and students in November when former Sen. Cameron Murphy, a graduate student in nutrition, used racial slurs and made other comments about minority groups while debating a resolution about senators excluding derogatory terms from their vocabulary. Murphy faced an impeachment hearing in December, but the committee fell one vote short of the two-thirds majority necessary to remove him from office. After the vote, several senators wrote a letter to the Daily Nebraskan that said they didn’t agree with his retaining a position. The outcry from students
I think we have a great opportunity with the amount of diversity we have on the senate this year.” marlene beyke asun director
sparked the “Not Here, Not Now, Not Ever!” campaign, in which UNL officials, including Chancellor Harvey Perlman, Vice Chancellor Juan Franco and then-ASUN President Eric Reznicek, held a forum and planned other events. “The whole incident was pretty low for ASUN and a low time for the whole campus,” Knudson said. But Knudson said the year had many highlights as well. He said he thought Earthstock, a monthlong series of sustainabilityfocused events, was an amazing success. ASUN will continue to implement ideas from the initiative, which included recycling and energy-saving competitions, a block party and a forum with educational speakers. Beyke said the Friends Beyond Borders program, which matched
international students with American families for a weekend to help increase cultural dialogue, was another success. ASUN also hosted “Creating a Tradition of Care” week in March, which focused on diversity, safety, sustainability, communication and health. University police, the Campus Recreation Center and other campus groups held events and attempted to educate students. ASUN also focused on completely revising the Student Code of Conduct, led by former External Vice President Jeff Story, a junior English and political science major. Story began work on the project last summer. The revamp included getting rid of outdated terms and updating how students are expected to conduct themselves. NEWS@ DAILYNEBRASKAN.COM
RHA thrived on diverse opinions, passion this year Gabrielle lazaro dn The combination of multiple thoughts and ideas from 40 diverse members of the Residence Hall Association led to some tough decision making during meetings this semester. It was this diversity, however, that turned out to be one of the most important aspects of the RHA organization this year, said Sydney Weddleton, former RHA vice president and a sophomore elementary education major. “It’s always difficult finding a middle ground,” she said. “All our representatives are passionate about what they do. We’re lucky to have that, but it can also cause struggles and difficulties in making decisions on what is best for residents … I feel in the end people were able to put the students they were representing first and come to a good compromise.” RHA accomplished a lot in the 2013-14 academic school year. They held significant events that engaged many residents and students across campus, improved relationships with various campus organizations, made constitution and bylaw changes that will impact the future of RHA and its residents, and also maintained an “official charity” for the second year
in a row. “I think getting involved in homecoming again was an important step for us,” Weddleton said. “We used to do homecoming – we didn’t for at least one year and this year we did the 5K. It was very successful in getting people involved and getting RHA well known right away – it was a very good experience.” RHA worked very closely with the Association of Students of the University of Nebraska’s environmental sustainability committee on putting together bike stations and the monthlong Earthstock event. “The continued effort with different organizations has been an important step we’ve taken,” Weddleton said. “I know we want to continue that for years to come.” RHA chose the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as it’s official charity this year – the previous year it was The Friendship Home. Having an official charity is a tradition started by 2012-13 RHA president and senior advertising and public relations major Meg Brannen. “It’s important because it sets a precedence for future years,” Weddleton said. “I think a commitment to giving back on a larger scale is important.” The changes made to the constitu-

respectful of everyone but also voiced his own opinions and would try to find possible solutions to things.” Looking toward the future, current RHA president Claire Carlson, a senior computer science major, hopes to do more with wellness, diversity initiatives and making people more
aware of what RHA does. “I think there’s a lot of students that don’t realize they pay to fund us,” she said. “They should have a stake in what we do. They should be engaged in what we do and tell us what they think and what they see as their obstacles.” Carlson is also looking forward to seeing how the changes put into effect this year will play out next year – specifically the committee restructures. The committee restructures included combining the programming and events committee into a single committee, adding an advocacy committee and the presidents committee and allowing people who aren’t RHA senators to be a part of committees.” “I think that will be an interesting change to see if that lets us do more,” she said. The advocacy committee was added to designate a group committed to promoting RHA – partially by advertising. They’ll also facilitate better communication between the halls and RHA itself, by distributing a calendar of all hall events. The programming committee was condensed to a single committee to make things more efficient. “We can say ‘OK, these couple people can work on one event and these couple people can work on this
event,’” Carlson said. “We can distribute people as needed and work on multiple events at once – making us more efficient and making us better use people’s time. Events are very much timely matters.” Carlson appointed two chairs to this committee: one for working on events as partners with other organizations and one for running RHA specific events. The presidents committee, which Carlson is particularly excited about, will have Knapp as the chair, and will focus on better communication between halls and providing leadership development to hall presidents as well as their governments. “It’s about making sure they’re developing as leaders and making sure they can enable their governments to grow as well,” Carlson said. “That’s something we really want to work on. Carlson also plans on using this summer as a time to think about what specific events she wants to continue on next year. “Some things will be a continuation of old events – things we’ve historically been involved with, but some will be new,” she said. “I want a good mix.” news@ dailynebraskan.com

cops briefs Man resists police on Salt Creek Road Bridge A Lincoln man was cited with four different offenses after an altercation with a University of NebraskaLincoln Police officer on Sunday evening. Police said 26-year-old Trevor Case, not UNL affiliated, was walking on the Salt Creek Road Bridge, which has a sign posted prohibiting pedestrians from walking on the bridge. A UNLPD officer approached Case and asked him to identify himself. After Case refused to identify himself to the officer, the officer tried to put Case into custody. Case then attempted to knock the officer down, according to reports. The officer then got Case on the ground and gained control of him. The officer struggled with Case until backup officers arrived. Case was cited with failure to comply, resisting arrest, failure to obey pedestrian control and assaulting an officer.
Non-UNL student receives 78 threatening texts
A man working an event at UNL on April 25 received a series of strange and threatening text messages. The man contacted UNLPD on Friday night and said he received 78 text messages from 78 different numbers. Police determined all of the numbers had come from Google Voice. There were five or six different text messages, repeated, that threatened the safety of the man. The texts were referring to the event the man was working at. The victim has no affiliation with UNL, and he said he believes he knows who sent the messages.

Police were originally called to a disturbance at Schramm Hall, 1130 N. 14th St. A non-UNL-affiliated man was trying to enter rooms on the first floor of the building near the lobby, they said. The man ran away and police were catching up with him as the man jumped over a wall on an overpass near North Antelope Valley Parkway. When police went over the wall, an officer lost his body camera. The camera was worth about $600. The man was not cited and taken to detox.

letter from the editor
Editor thanks DN readers for their continued support Dear readers, Thank you. Thank you for humoring me during the past four years and picking up the Daily Nebraskan. We’ve been through a lot together, haven’t we? There were those campus gunman scares. The College of Business Administration bomb threat. And then bedbugs, Employee Plus One benefits, proposed health center privatization and racial tensions. Some notable resignations and appointments. A college merger. A big move to a new conference. These are the events that have defined my life since I came to the University of Nebraska– Lincoln. And I owe that to you. Without you, telling these stories would have been pointless. Thank you for sharing your stories – your successes, struggles and a lot of funny moments, too. It’s been a privilege to be able to have a hand in documenting these moments, especially those stories that still make me laugh or cry. I wrote an article about people hanging out in crawl spaces – referred to as “Narnia portals” – in the walls of the corner rooms in Abel Hall when I was a freshman. Wow. The past four years have been a challenging time to work for a college newspaper. College students aren’t always eager to pick up a print publication or visit a news website that publishes few listicles and gifs. But I’ve had so much fun and learned so much
discovering new ways to engage you. And it’s been so exciting helping to craft the DN of the future – a DN quite different from anything we’ve seen yet. Thank you for sticking with us as we transition to primarily online this fall. I’m so excited to see what DN staffs of the future create and how the UNL community embraces it. Thank you students, administrators, faculty, staff and community members for letting us call you and email you and record you and take your photo. Thank you for inviting us to be there for some of your most important moments. Thank you for your letters to the editor, news tips and feedback. And, of course, thank you a million times over to my staff. You impressed me time and time again. You’re among the hardest working people I’ve ever met. I’d buy you each a lifetime supply of pizza if I could. I’m so fortunate to have been able to work with you all, and I can’t wait to see what you go on to do. I could write a novel on what I’ve learned at the DN and the people I’ve met and learned from along the way. But I care too much about you to put you through a rambling, sentimental mess like that. I hope you’ve learned a lot from the DN, too. I hope you keep checking back to learn more. I know I will. Sincerely,
Editor-in-chief mike rendowski | dn
letter to the editor Reader agrees with anti attack ad column Mark, I for one am so sick of listening to the ads bashing “Obamacare” and cannot seem to determine candidates running for office in Nebraska who are pro ACA. It seems there is not much of a choice for Nebraskans. I found your above mentioned article online and appreciate your focus on moderates in Nebraska. Are there really moderates in Nebraska? I am one of the unemployed here – June will be one
year. Due to my age and health conditions I am not considered employable in my field. I have had serious health complications this year and count my blessings every day that I have health insurance through ACA. If it gets repealed there will be 8 million of us with no options for healthcare. I’m writing to encourage you and others like you to continue to provide open minded non biased news information and please please encourage those candidates supporting the ACA to come forward and open up – there are many of us anxious to support their campaigns.
Best Regards, Linda Sadofsky

DN offers experience for all majors
f you had told me a few years ago I would eventually be the opinion editor for the Daily Nebraskan, I probably would have laughed at you. Mind you, it’s not that I didn’t think the DN was a quality publication. I write for it, so of course I think it’s quality. But 18-yearold me probably would have said, “Who, me? But I’m not a journalism student! The DN wouldn’t want me.” Needless to say, I was wrong. The DN has done great things for me the past two years. In fact, I would encourage any student – regardless of major – to join it, too. In our technologically charged world, we millenials often struggle to make our voices heard. We try blogging but feel like no one’s reading. We look for ways to express ourselves in our classes, but unless we’re studying creative writing those chances are pretty rare. Looking for ways to get your writing published, even if it reaches a small audience, will still fulfill that longing. A student newspaper, in particular, showcases you to an audience of people who are, more or less, just like you. Journalism students need experience with reporting and writing for a deadline because that’s the bulk of their careers. Therefore, student publications are a great way for them to get that experience and start padding their resume right on campus. But what if you’re not a journalism major and you’re just looking for a chance to write? Can it ever become more than just a hobby? Yes, it can. Writing for the DN was nerve-wracking at first. I felt lost in a sea of AP Style rules I had never learned while I lamented the deletion of my Oxford commas. But more importantly I wondered, “Do people really care what I have to say? What difference am I making?” It didn’t take long to begin seeing the answers to those questions. My columns improved and more people were beginning to compliment my work – notably, some of my professors. When the time came for senior staff applica-
tions I decided to take a shot, despite my worthy competition. I was first hired as the assistant opinion editor this year but got the chance to be the section leader when our former editor resigned. Full disclosure: I was a little scared to do it. But I did, and I can say that it was, without a doubt, the right choice. Just in case you didn’t already guess, this is the last column I will ever write for the DN. In spite of how short my time here was, I can say without a doubt that this was one of the best experiences I had in college. While writing for the DN, I received Twitter mentions from various organizations and thoughtful emails from readers. My professors not only knew my name, they started giving me props – for something I was doing outside of class. And best of all, I felt connected to campus in a way I, quite frankly, hadn’t found before. My time on senior staff in particular will always be something I remember fondly. I had a fantastic, albeit sometimes very stressful, job – but it also gave me some of the closest friends I had in college. Any time I watch “Mean Girls,” listen to Britney Spears or inevitably end up eating Chipotle at work, I will think of the news/ opinion desks. And when I’m teaching in France next year, I’ll keep my DN pizza pin on my backpack and hope someone asks me about it. I’ve gotten to do so many things I loved. For example, I geeked out digging through the DN archive room to bring the University of Nebraska-Lincoln a refurbished Throwback Thursday page. But most importantly (cue the cheesy in-
strumental music), I got the chance to watch our writers grow and learn. And in the end, despite our ups and downs, we created something that I’m so proud to have been a part of. I owe a lot to Amy Kenyon, who signed on to be the assistant opinion editor in the middle of last semester, learned quickly and put up with my often frenetic mannerisms. Thank you to Rhiannon Root for encouraging me to apply for this job and for listening to me when I needed wisdom. Much love to the rest of the senior staff – with a special nod to Jacy Marmaduke, Frannie Sprouls and Conor Dunn for being the best people on earth to share a cubicle with and to Hailey Konnath for her time, energy and patience. To those of you who have given us positive feedback this year, thank you. To those of you who have voiced your grievances with us, I also want to thank you. You not only pointed out the ways in which we can improve, but you also remind us how many different points of view there really are – and that, in essence, is the whole purpose of our section. Whether you’re a journalism major, a French major, an engineering student or an expert in underwater basket weaving – the DN can use your voice. Don’t ever stop yourself from doing something because you think you’re unqualified or there’s a better person for the job. If you liked what you read this year, I encourage you to try to write next year so you can share in the joy. If you didn’t like it, you should join as well, so that you can help us do better. With that, I’ll leave this section in the capable hands of Amy Kenyon and Ben Curttright and hang up my hat. Thanks to everyone who has appreciated – or at least tolerated – my jaded, nostalgic, feminist musings. Trust me when I say I have thoroughly enjoyed this journey with you.

Amy kenyon ka, we want our writers to use accurate details to add to their commentary. These may not always be the columns readers instantly want to pick up and read. They take a little more time and may seem more removed from our everyday lives. But they will still be on topics that affect students. We are voters. We live under state and university policy. We should take a moment to be informed on these larger issues, even if this happens once a week rather than every day. When I came to college, my ideas on journalism and information sharing were limited. I started writing for DN opinion early spring semester my freshman year at UNL. At the time, I barely looked at the news myself, but I thought it would be a fun way to make a little money. The
idea of being editor one day sounded appealing but rather distant. In the fall, the opinion editor resigned, Ruth Boettner stepped up and left an assistant position open. She was incredibly encouraging when I asked about applying and has helped me learn throughout the year. During my time here, I’ve been overwhelmed at times, but I’ve learned a lot about improving my own writing and communicating with others. I’ve learned to be comfortable with my ideas and eager to hear the thoughts of others. I’m excited to step up next year as opinion editor. It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. Curttright will be the assistant editor and a senior English major. He has already shown his own writing capability and helped formulate ideas for the logistics of next year. It’ll be a learning process for both of us, but I believe we will do well. We’re not The New York Times, and we’re not Buzzfeed. Most of our readers live on and around campus. We’re very aware of where we sit, though we tend to be optimistic about who we can reach. When we began to envision changes for next year, we agreed that giving up wasn’t the answer. I wholeheartedly believe the conversations we produce are
worth having. Thoughts are worth sharing in a variety of formats. What does this mean for you, the reader? Find our columns on Twitter, Facebook and the Daily Nebraskan website. Share our stories in any of these formats, if you agree or disagree with them. If you hear about an event or an issue we should talk about, please let us know. Suggest topics we should cover in a point-counterpoint debate. Tell us your stance on these debates. The more you communicate with us, the better we can serve you. In the end, the goal of our section is to create a space to have these conversations, to give time to the topics that affect our lives. For now, good luck during finals week. For those of you who aren’t graduating, we look forward to bringing you a brand new opinion section when you come back this fall. ››Ben Curttright contributed to this column.

ton, Jacki Weaver and Guy Pearce. It’s a taut and fiercely written crawl through the pervasive and seductive pulls of the underworld. His second feature “The Rover” reunites the director with Guy Pearce playing a titular loner in a gritty post-apocalyptic waste who must team up with a wounded robber – played by Robert Pattinson – to track the thief’s cohorts. The trailer promises gorgeously savage visuals and, brought together with Pearce’s ferocious screen power and Michôd’s dialogue, should be one of this summer’s most striking films.
“A Million Ways to Die in the West” May 30
“X-men: Days of Future Past” May 23
The “X-Men” films have been a pretty mixed bag. The franchise started strong. Then came the third and fourth installments, “XMen: The Last Stand” and “X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” It takes a lot of willpower to try to forget those two disasters, but the prequel “X-Men: First Class” and “The Wolverine” certainly helped. Now the director of the original two films, Bryan Singer is back to repair the damage done to the original franchise by marrying it with the prequel franchise in the timebending mouthful, “X-Men: Days of Future Past.” The story arc is one of the most popular from the comics and, let’s face it, any excuse to bring together Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Ian McKellan, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, James McAvoy, Halle Berry, Ellen Page and Peter Dinklage should be treasured.
bold sense of humor prevented it from being just another book about cancer and made it something much more remarkable, something much more human. Now the filmmakers face the challenge of making not just another movie about cancer. It’s comforting to know John Green has been fairly involved in the making of the film and screenwriting duo Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber have already proved they can handle intelligent young adult dramedies with last year’s “The Spectacular Now.” Shailene Woodley, newcomer Ansel Elgort and Willem Dafoe star.
Jersey Boys June 20
“Jersey Boys,” the biographical story of The Four Seasons, is one of the most acclaimed and instantly recognizable stage musicals of all time. Clint Eastwood is directing the film adaptation. Once the initial shock of that statement passes, what’s left are intrigue and glee in equal doses. Featuring predominantly upand-comers, the film’s biggest name is Christopher Walken in a supporting role. The most important cast member, however, is John Lloyd Young. Young is portraying Frankie Valli and already won the Tony for the same role on the stage. The trailer for the film promises an amount of grit uncommon to musicals but common to Eastwood – under whose direction “Jersey Boys” promises to be one of the most uniquely promising films of the summer.
“The Fault in Our Stars” June 6
When John Green’s young adult novel “The Fault in Our Stars” hit bookshelves in January 2012, it was an instant sensation. It was one of those young adult books that stops being a young adult book. The absolutely heartshattering story of teens with cancer, the book’s
“Godzilla” May 16
This umpteenth installment of the 60-yearold franchise is the second reboot after Roland Emmerich’s ill-received 1998 version. Watching the trailer, I’m thankful we’re finally getting a big summer spectacle not rendered in exhausting hues of blue and orange. The dark atmosphere, complete with eerie music and a scowling Bryan Cranston, recalls the original black-and-white look of the film and possibly suggests a more mature kind of monster movie. Will Cranston’s involvement and the art design carry the production? Will the reboot deliver on all the promises “Pacific Rim” could not? We’ll find out on May 16.
“22 Jump Street” June 13
“How to Train Your Dragon 2” June 13
Any time an animated film does remotely well at the box office it seems a sequel’s immediately green lit. Of all of the animated sequels in the last 10 years, none feel more appropriate to me than a sequel to “How to Train Your Dragon.” The first film managed to be funfor-kids while being intelligently written for adults. Even more important, the world created in the first film and the characters introduced leave plenty of adventures to be had. Original cast members Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler, Jonah Hill and Kristen Wiig are returning along with newcomer Cate Blanchett and original director, Dean Dublois.
Seth Macfarlane’s western follow-up to “Ted” looks to be a step in the right direction for his blooming career in live-action comedy. It’s about Albert, played by MacFarlane himself, a cowardly sheep farmer who, after courting Anna (Charlize Theron), has to face Clinch (Liam Neeson), a ruthless gunslinger. This should prove to be an irreverent parody/ celebration of western film in the style of “Blazing Saddles,” and if MacFarlane can just keep his ego from crowding up the frame, it could be fantastic, if provocative, summer entertainment.
“Dawn of Planet of the Apes” July 11
The much-loved “Planet of the Apes” franchise became the butt of a tragic joke with Tim Burton’s 2001 masterful disaster. The film was big on spectacle, empty on pretty much everything else. “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” in 2011 starring James Franco scaled back the series, producing a few fleshed out characters, chronicling the origin of the intelligent apes and reintroducing moral complexity. The trailer for the second film, “The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” is everything a trailer should be. It’s mysterious, it hints at the action instead of showcasing it, and it has Gary Oldman saying a bunch of ominous things. The film also stars Jason Clarke, Keri Russell, Judy Greer and Andy Serkis in motion capture as Caesar – the leader of the apes.
“21 Jump Street” defied the assumption that all reboots have to be forgettable, ill-conceived cash grabs. It stood out as one of the funniest movies of 2012, and from the looks of the trailer, “22 Jump Street” is set to surpass its predecessor. Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who also scored a hit with this years’ “The Lego Movie,” have a keen sense of humor and storytelling prowess to match. Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are sure to deliver hilarious performances. This is a must-see for the summer.
“The Dance of Reality” May
Alejandro Jodorowsky hasn’t done a film since his 1989’s “Santa Sangre,” a surreal masterpiece in its own right. His recent autobiograpy marks his return to filmmaking. In “Dance,” he has surrealized and dramatized the reality of his life story. This is because, as Jodorowsky explains, reality is forever shifting, changing and dancing. His latest film had a glowing premiere at Cannes last year, and will make its way stateside in late May. “The Dance of Reality” is sure to be a one-of-a-kind film, and not one to miss if you’re looking for a different kind of summer movie experience.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” August 1
“The Rover” June 20
Director David Michôd made waves – like, tsunami waves – in 2010 with his debut Australian crime drama “Animal Kingdom.” The film, also written by Michôd, stars Joel Edger-
Marvel’s ever-expanding universe takes a strange turn in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” an Avengers-style team of heroes that includes Bradley Cooper as a talking raccoon and a living tree voiced by Vin Diesel. Yes, you read that correctly. “Guardians” is a risky project for Marvel. It’s quite unusual, so if it doesn’t connect with audiences, the Marvel universe might come to a freeze. Director James Gunn (“Slither,” “Super”) is no stranger to strange material, so with him calling the shots we should be in for one hell of an interesting ride. Too bad we have to wait until August to see it. arts@ dailynebraskan.com

Burkholder Project, AZP band to take part in First Friday Vanessa Daves Dn Local musicians, artists and other performers will be entertaining members of the Lincoln community Friday at this month’s First Friday event in the Haymarket. Jeff Cunningham, business manager of the Haymarket, said it’s a popular event among Lincoln community members. “It’s become kind of an anticipated event,” Cunningham said. “People love to come down and go through the art galleries and see what’s available. It’s become a social event for people in Lincoln.” Lisa Holmquist, gallery director for The Burkholder Project, said First Friday’s a good way to expose oneself to culture within Lincoln. According to its website, The Burkholder Project “is a unique collection of 36 art and design studios with loft apartments and three levels of galleries, connected
by a sun-filled atrium.” It’s been existent since 1987, and Holmquist said they host a variety of artists. In this month’s First Friday event, The Burkholder Project will be hosting four different exhibits featuring several different artists. “Even if they’ve never been before, it’s a very fun event and very social, but it also does give them exposure to art they might not have seen otherwise,” Holmquist said. Elizabeth Rieke’s an artist who has been featured by the Burkholder Project in the past. Though she won’t be featured this month, she said it’s a great opportunity for artists and people in the community. “It’s a great way to get your work out there in a professional setting,” Rieke said. “And I know I went there when I was in college, and it’s a fun free evening out. And now, with the new places in the Haymarket, you can make a whole deal of it and go to eat and get coffee.”

DN matters because it mattered to us katie Nelson
I’d like to tell you something sentimental. But anything sentimental I could say would be bullshit because there’s nothing sentimental about the Daily Nebraskan. There’s nothing forgiving about it. There’s nothing supportive about it. It’s a goddamn nightmare most days anyway. And I’ve spent four years there. I’m not going to write about the first day I set foot in the Nebraska Union basement, about how I was terribly alone and in desperate need of some sort of community or even one real friend. I’m not going to tell you how little I knew about anything journalism when I did my first, second, 10th interview. I’m not going to tell you about how writing seven stories a week for two sections taught me how to beg, borrow, cheat and steal my way through my real classes. And I’m not going to tell you how that eventually made me one of the Arts & Life editors. I’m not going to tell you about the banquets and after parties, which if anything, have contributed to my addictions. I’m not going to feed you bullshit about “friendship” and “family” and “how much I’m going to miss this place” because none of it’s true. I’m going to tell you about my last night at work instead. I got into work at 4 p.m. and set up my budget, which means I made a list of the stories that would go into my section the next day. Then I waited for my reporters to send them in so I could edit them. We had our budget meeting at 5 p.m. in a bar, where we talked about all of the stories, photos and illustrations that would go into Thursday’s paper. I got back to my desk and edited the stories my reporters sent in. Add a comma, rearrange a sentence, subtract a comma, double check a name or two. I attended another meeting and wrote captions (the sentences underneath photos), teasers (the few words on the front page about a story in my section) and an art head (the words next to the front-page story in my section). I looked over proofs (copies of the fully designed pages before they are sent
to print), changed some headlines, asked for a picture of a reporter to be printed by the story and shortened a caption. The night was nothing new or even anything that required too much of a special skill set. I’ve been doing it for two and a half years at this point, and like the first night I finished editing, nothing happened. It was depressingly anticlimactic, just as my last night at the Daily Nebraskan should have been. I did my job then I left. I didn’t cry, and I’m not going to cry or carry on. There is a sign in the Arts & Life section with two pictures of the reporters and editors. Both photos were taken at two of the infamous banquets, so everyone depicted is inebriated. In one of the photos, there are literally 20 people piled on a couch – sitting on each other, crouching on the floor, creeping behind the group. In the other, there are about 10 people cramming themselves in or around a single chair. In both photos, the reporters and editors are clinging to one another. Some of us are grinning. Some of us are making hideous faces. Some of us are unaware that a photo’s being taken. Underneath both photos is the caption, “All this strange beauty, thrown right at me.” And that’s exactly what the Daily Nebraskan is. We’re children becoming college students becoming adults. We’re stumbling and struggling. We’re trying to write and edit stories and take photos and draw illustrations for a publication we know is dying anyway. And if it’s not dying, then it’s being berated. We work for the publication students and other publications love to make fun of. We’re overworked and underpaid. And we love it. We fucking love it. I spent endless hours in that godforsaken basement with people I loved and hated. I lost sleep, and I barely received an income. And I went back every year for four years. There’s nothing special about the people there. There’s nothing special about what we’re doing. But we’re still doing it. I learned a lot there. I learned about respect and loyalty and politics. The work and the people there broke me down and built me up. It was the place that made me who I am today, for better or worse. Katie Nelson Will always be a DNer.

‘Ernest & Celestine’ addresses prejudice Amanda Stoffel Dn Like many tales that involve talking animals, there’s a parable to be found from the adventures of anthropomorphized creatures. “Ernest & Celestine” is no exception. The tale of a young mouse, Celestine, and her befriending of a bear with an artistic sentiment, Ernest, is sure to delight audiences with a story of love, friendship and unity in the face of adversity. The film follows the typical format of a film with a lesson for the audience, but there’s charming nuance to the simplistic, watercolor-style animation. As a young dentist’s apprentice, Celestine is curious about the world of above, where the bears live. The worlds that lie above and below each understand those who reside in the other part of the city as less than themselves; the bears are scary and vicious, eating every little mouse they find, and the mice are pests that terrify mothers, once one gets inside, they all follow. After some mishaps involving a hunt for food by Ernest and a search for bear’s teeth by Celestine, the two become accidental friends. They find happiness in their companionship, both loving art and helping the other
courtesy photo do things he couldn’t do on their own. Although predictable at times, “Ernest & Celestine” offers quick wit and lighthearted humor, allowing the larger message of acceptance to show through. The film shows the importance of the curiosity of the young. Celestine is unafraid to learn about those she’s been taught to fear and quickly realizes the lack of acceptance and community amongst the animals is merely a result of years of social prejudice and the unwillingness of individuals to change their views of others.
A tinkling score filled with melodic piano tunes, “Ernest & Celestine” feels like watching the children’s book, which the film is based off of come to life, allowing audiences of all ages to remember the importance of learning from those around you. Sometimes, all it takes is the small voice of a mouse who loves to draw and the grumble of a large bear with a hat to recognize the important things of life. arts@ dailynebraskan.com

Film explores obscure life of Maier Hannah ratliff Dn I don’t usually like documentaries. They can be dry, boring and torturous if they’re not done well – and I’ve sat through a number of those, both in movie theaters and lecture halls. Even if there’s an interesting story at the heart of it all, it can get lost amidst tedious interviews with experts and b-roll footage of museums, landscapes or old houses. For a documentary to work a compelling story isn’t enough – you have to have both a great story and a great way of telling it. So I’m not really sure why I volunteered to review “Finding Vivian Maier.” Maybe it was because I remembered hearing about her in the news a few years ago, or maybe it’s because I wanted this month’s paycheck to be a few dollars bigger. Maybe it’s because I once dreamt of happening upon something old, fascinating and valuable while watching a “Storage Wars” marathon (don’t judge), just like the film’s writer and director, John Maloof, did in an auction in 2007. The film follows Maloof as he searches to find out more about
the ambiguous figure of Vivian Maier, whose prolific collection of incredible street photographs was bought by Maloof at an auction for a few hundred dollars. After developing the film and noticing the quality of her work, Maloof looked her up – only to find absolutely no trace of her. And so the quest begins. After a bit more digging, Maloof finds out Maier, who’s now dead, was a nanny for a number of families in the 1950s, ‘60s and part of the ‘70s in Chicago and led a life that was anything but ordinary. As Maloof talks to the few connections Maier had in life, he discovers bits and pieces that created a woman who made a habit of shrouding herself in mystery. I think what makes this documentary as intriguing as it is is, well, what I said earlier – it’s well done. Maloof was able to track down Maier ’s limited acquaintances, which was probably no easy feat, and their interviews provide captivating insight into Maier ’s unusual life. That said, the interviewees are quite interesting – Maloof talks to the (now grown) children who Maier nannied, as well as Maier ’s employers, and some of them are quite
eccentric characters. Even the established photographers Maloof interviews, who never knew Maier, are unusual people. Which brings me to my next point: If you, like myself, aren’t one for documentaries but have any interest in photography or art, I’d venture to say you’d enjoy “Finding Vivian Maier,” if not for the story, then for the photographs they show. As a viewer, you get a close look at some of Maier ’s best work. I have to say, even though I don’t know much about photography, I could tell right away her photographs were incredible. Her work, which set this whole project in motion, is truly worth seeing. But maybe the most interesting part of this whole story is it’s still evolving. Though you’ll know much more about Maier by the end of the film than when you started, you’re still left with questions about her life, her personality and how she came to be the unusual person that she was. And, in my opinion, that’s what a great film, novel, photograph or whatever, does – leaves you wanting more. arts@ dailynebraskan.com

Time at DN boosted confidence, journalism skills TYLER KEOWN
This whole thing happened on a whim. Almost exactly three years ago, I decided to enroll in the journalism college here. I didn’t have a rationale, like, at all. I just did it. I was two years removed from my first attempt at college, an awful affair that ended after hiding
in my dorm room every day and failing all my classes, and didn’t feel great about the second shot. So I just went for it because coming in as an exploratory major is for weak jellyfish people. I met a girl, who’s now a summer away from being in charge of this entire paper, and she convinced me to join the Daily Nebraskan, and I did it because why not? Being spontaneous was a goal of mine back then. And from there, things just kind of worked out. I got to meet all kinds of people: dudes named Chance with ethereal hair, overworked electric women named Katie, strong-jawed Huckleber-
ries named Nate, hysterical girls that were OK with us calling them “Shrek.” It’s weird how something like this can change a life. I came in so, so scared – my high school didn’t have a newspaper, and I wasn’t sure what journalism was, really. Even worse was seeing all these talented kids, almost all of them younger than me, coming from all over the country to study and write here. I was an imposter in the ranks, trying to pretend that I had the same passion and skill set as everyone around me. But over time, it just kept working itself out. It turned out I actually enjoyed journalizing
Editor passes torch to next year’s editors nathan sindelar
Welp, here it is, the last issue of the Daily Nebraskan for the 201314 school year. It’s also my last issue as the editor of Arts & Life. I want to say “so it goes” and reference one of my favorite books of all time. I want to shrug it off, casually toss aside the last year of my life and move along into that oh-so-bright future without so much as a pause for reflection. But that’s not quite how it feels. That’s not how it feels in this moment, writing this piece (last minute, of course). “So it goes” implies a sense of inconsequence. It asks with its own shrug of the shoulders, “In the long run, what does it matter?” Maybe nothing, I guess. Probably nothing, in fact. Operating these past two semesters like a shadow on campus, watching crowds of paperless students shuffle past the stands that hold the bounty of our daily lives’ work, listening to class mates absentmindedly laugh at our publication – unaware of who they might be insulting – I watched that inconsequence first hand,
heard it whispered past my desk each week. Not that it matters all that much how I feel. There’s a beauty and a bane to being an editor. The stories that populate our section every day aren’t mine, not necessarily ours. We three editors may have came up with the ideas and angles, but we didn’t do the reporting, we didn’t transcribe hours worth of interviews, we didn’t write the pieces and our bylines, by and large, are nowhere to be found. That’s not to say our roles were insubstantial, what with the 4 to 11 p.m. shifts most nights, the hours spent every day during and between classes calling, texting and emailing reporters or photographers to organize and direct stumbling pieces. It’s to illustrate the sense of distance that comes with being an editor, rather than an active contributor. But in that newfound sense of space something else took its place. Stress and anxiety for one thing, sure, but something positive too. I got to know the people I worked with in a different way. It was my section’s content that had to fill a certain number of pages each day, my job to work with the photo team, the art team, the design team and copy desk. People began to depend on our efforts as editors, not only to make their jobs easier each night but to build as solid a newspaper as we could.
It was our obligation to work as hard as we could because if we didn’t we let way more than ourselves down. Of course we got on each other ’s nerves – raged at each other, really – the Arts section blaring Sheryl Crow & Kid Rock duets out of our waist-high cubicle, inventing sound effects to replace human being’s last names. If the public ever wandered into this decrepit Nebraska Union basement, its single window with a view of nothing, its population howling at a Little Tikes basketball hoop, they would likely leave immediately and never again speak of what they saw. It was the more than 100 people who work here that filled the space. It was those moments of seeming insanity that built us up and sustained us through. And now we pass the torch – as it was once handed to us – to three new editors, fresh from the streets, soft and kind of pinkish in tone. That’ll fade. But they won’t. Good luck Gabriella MartinezGarro. Good luck Madeline Christensen. Good luck Zach Fulciniti. Enjoy your new powers, make some weird memories and give us all some beautiful stories.

things, and much, much more importantly, I met these people. Sometimes I wish I could go back to 2011, to 2012, to 2013, and tell myself about how good things were going to keep getting. That I was only going to laugh harder, to meet more remarkable people, to enjoy what I do more and more. And now, I’m leaving. I’m headed to another job, seizing an opportunity afforded to me by my three years at the Daily Nebraskan. I’m still scared, of course. It would be bad if I wasn’t scared of leaving this job. I’m scared of the lack of stability the DN offers and the people I won’t see every day.
This place and this job have been very, very important to me, is the point. And thanks to everything and everyone involved.” At this point, though, I’m aware that things will work out. We’re leaving the arts section in the hands of three hugely capable young’ns who’ll do great, I’m sure. I feel bad because to this point I feel like this column has been scrambled and not shown the
gratitude I really have for this place. It’s just hard to articulate, I guess. This place and this job have been very, very important to me is the point. And thanks to everything and everyone involved. Tyler Keown got so lucky. Contact him at arts@ dailynebraskan.com
Best memories of editing the Daily Nebraskan
Pumpkin in a box
We didn’t notice a smell. We noticed a wet box sitting on top of our cabinet seemed to be dripping. Upon opening it, we found a whole pumpkin. We found it the week before Christmas break. We don’t know how it got there, or why anyone would even put a pumpkin in a box at all. But we sure as shit know orange mega-gourd had seen better days.

Our boss went to Spain
Tyler Keown and Nathan Sindelar weren’t always editors. At one point, they slaved under the rule of Katie Nelson and her pale skin.
Our boss came back from Spain and became an editor again We looked over, and there she was. Huh. Tanner though.
Little Tikes basketball
The Daily Nebraskan has a Little Tikes basketball hoop, and we play Pig or Horse nearly every day. One time, we played it in chairs. One time, a former editor did a 360 and busted open his chin. One time we made a former opinion editor feel so bad about his lack of game that he quit the paper.
There’s a guy on YouTube that inhales hotdogs on camera, and when he sucks them down the noise he makes sounds just like our old assistant editor Shelby Fleig’s last name. That’s it really. It was great.

ADVERTISEMENT You deserve a factual look at . . . Why Should the U.S. Fund the Palestinian Authority? The Palestinians spurn peace talks with Israel and now plan to align with Hamas terrorists. Should we be sending them more than half a billion dollars a year?
Mike Shoro DN
Despite all efforts by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, the Palestinian Authority (P.A.) has rejected U.S. diplomatic efforts and a negotiated peace with Israel by unilaterally signing on to 15 international agreements. Even more alarming, the P.A. just announced a merger with the Islamic terror group Hamas. Currently the U.S. sends some $440 million dollars annually in direct aid to the P.A., plus an additional $225 million in funding through the U.N. Is this the best use of American tax dollars?
What are the facts?
the deal later fell apart—knowing full well that it is against U.S. law for Congress to fund any Since 1979, the United States has expended organization with terrorist ties. Now Abba has untold diplomatic capital to forge an Israeliannounced a new merger with Hamas, the faction Palestinian peace. Yet every time peace has seemed at that openly advocates the conquest of every inch of hand—including the U.S.-brokered Oslo accords in Palestine, cleansing it of Jews, and establishing a 1993, and Israel’s historic Camp David offer in 2000 fundamentalist Islamic caliphate. Above all, Hamas of a Palestinian state with a capital in East refuses to accept the state Jerusalem—the of Israel and condemns Palestinians have refused “If a Palestinian state were declared today, it any efforts to negotiate to make peace. In 2008, following the Annapolis would be neither democratic, nor peaceful nor peace.

The Nebraska track and field team will open competition in May on the road at the Musco Twilight this weekend in Iowa City, Iowa. The Iowa Hawkeyes will host Nebraska as well as Iowa State, Northern Iowa and Drake, and fellow Big Ten Conference rivals Minnesota and the Illinois men’s team. It’ll be the Huskers’ last regular season road meet of the spring semester. The No. 11 Husker men are one of two ranked teams competing this weekend, the second being the No. 14 Illini. The Husker women are unranked. Nebraska is competing as a complete team for the first time since April 12, when it hosted the Nebraska Quad. Last week, the Huskers split following the PreDrake home meet; most athletes traveled to the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa, and the rest traveled to San Diego for the Triton Invitational. As has been the case for most of the season, the team is viewing its weekend meet as just another chance to compete before the 2014 Big Ten Conference Championships in West Lafayette, Ind., in two weeks. “I would say all the meets leading to conference are kind of preparation meets,” senior jumper Patrick Raedler said. “Conference is the most important thing. So, everything before is to prepare us for conference.” Raedler, who won’t be traveling to Iowa City so he can prepare for final exams next week, was named Big Ten Field Athlete of the Week for his season-best long jump of 25-5 1/2 feet at the Drake Relays last week. Even with a few students electing to stay home, the team shouldn’t need to make any major adjustments heading into the file photo by jennifer gotrik | dn Musco Twilight.

NU hopes to improve in series against Penn State Nedu Izu DN The Nebraska baseball team’s next opponent isn’t anyone glamorous. When Penn State travels to Lincoln this weekend for a threegame series, it’ll come in with a 17-23 overall record and a ninthplace standing in the Big Ten Conference (5-9). It may be easy to think that with the Huskers entering their homestand with a 29-17 overall record (10-5) this series should be a piece of cake. Another series win in the bag. However, fans of the boys in scarlet and red can’t be fooled by their second-place standing. Though Nebraska took 2 out of 3 in its last weekend in Michigan, it dropped its last home conference series against No. 11 Northwestern (12-29, 4-13). Although no win is guaranteed, the Huskers realize that there’s no other choice but to win out the rest of the season to ensure a better position heading into conference and regional play. “We have a lot at stake for us right now,” junior outfielder Austin Darby said. “We got to play our hearts out from here on out because there’s only so many games left, and you got to do what you got to do to make it into postseason.” And they showed they were able to start backing up that talk Wednesday by defeating Nebraska-Omaha, 4-1. Thanks to rallies in the top of the seventh and eighth innings, capped off by an infield RBI single by Darby, the Huskers captured their final non-conference contest and fourth win in five games. “He’s a very good base runner,” Nebraska coach Darin Erstad said. “He’s got very good

Junior left-handed pitcher Kyle Kubat helped the Huskers defeat the University of Nebraska-Omaha, 4-1, by pitching three scoreless innings on Wednesday.

hinted at the possibility of seeing the left-hander start the series’ rubber match Sunday. “There’s a pretty good chance we’re going to bump everyone up,” he said. “We’ll go ‘to be determined’ on Sunday – Christian (DeLeon)’s just not responding well right now, so we’re going to give him a few extra days and see where he’s at on Friday.” Junior right-hander Chance Sinclair will be expected to take the mound for Game 1 against the Nittany Lions; he carries a 6-1 record and the lowest-earned run average among all conference starters (1.66 ERA). Junior southpaw Aaron Bummer (4-3) will start Saturday after losing against Michigan last Sunday and seeing his ERA spike up to 4.63. Pitching and clutch base hitting assisted the Huskers in their latest win, and Erstad’s looking for the same formula to play out this weekend. “We’re going to take Friday as it comes,” he said. “We’re just going to play consistent baseball. Take care of the baseball, have consistent at bats up and down the lineup and pound the zone. When we do that we can be an OK ball club. But we just got to go out there and do our thing.” And if you ask the coach what mindset his team has right now, he’ll give you the same proclamation that his outfielder Darby gave. Playing inconsistent baseball isn’t an option anymore. “We’re already in the playoffs,” Erstad said. “Our guys know how important each and every game is. We just go out there and try and pay attention to the details and just play good baseball.” sports@ dailynebraskan.com
Husker men’s golf team prepares for Big Tens Staff Report DN
jake crandall | dn
Senior pitcher Tatum Edwards has the third-best ERA in the Big Ten Conference with a 1.67. Nebraska’s opponents have combined for an average .195 batting average against Edwards’ pitching.
NU’s Edwards twins play in last home game Josh Kelly DN For the second weekend in a row, the No. 19 Nebraska softball team will travel to the state of Illinois, this time to compete against the Fighting Illini. The Huskers are riding a 37-13 record after winning a mid-week matchup against Wisconsin. The Huskers beat the Badgers at home 5-2. Between the teams, there were only 10 combined hits. In a game where it was hard to find the outfield, sophomore pitcher Emily Lockman came into a rare situation to make her first-career save as a Husker. For Nebraska coach Rhonda Revelle, it was a move that made complete sense and looks to do that more often with the sophomore. “Emily was ready to go, and we wanted to give Creighton a different look. She came in and did a really nice job,” Revelle said. For Illinois, the Fighting Illini are 20-25. While the Huskers are 3-3 so far in Big Ten Conference play, the Fighting Illini have had a rough start to
the first couple series against Big Ten squads, going 1-5 in their first 6 games. The Fighting Illini were able to snag a win in their 3-game series against Iowa, but the next weekend they were swept by No. 14 Minnesota, who was also able to win 2 out 3 games against the Huskers a few weeks ago. Illinois was able to break its 4-game losing streak with a 7-4 against Illinois State. Even though the team has had many losses recently, the Fighting Illini come in at No. 47 in the RPI rankings. Only four other teams in the Big Ten are in the top 50 of the RPIs. Nebraska is No. 7 in the RPI rankings. Other Big Ten teams that are ranked in the top 50 of the RPI rankings are Michigan, Minnesota and Northwestern. Heading into the weekend senior pitcher Tatum Edwards knows that the runs won’t come easy, and if the team’s able to get a lead, more insurance runs will take a lot of pressure off the veteran pitcher. “It’s huge. You go out there and work hard for the defense and then you obviously want the offense to score runs for you,” Edwards said. “It’s great to have those insurance
runs. You relax a little bit, and you get in your shoes a little bit more. It’s a lot easier.” In a conference full of pitchers, Edwards has the third-best ERA with 1.67. So far this season offenses have combined to hit a .195 batting average against the senior. Last weekend the Huskers scored 23 runs in their final two games against Northwestern on the road, but this week after beating Creighton, Revelle brought up to her team that the runs won’t come the easiest and that will force the offense to play smart softball. “You’re going to have some nights where you won’t be able to find the gaps,” Revelle said. “It’s all about finding a rhythm. That’s pitching and hitting. Sometimes it comes easier than others.” The 3-game series between the two schools will begin with a Friday evening followed by afternoon games on Saturday and Sunday. Following the Illinois series, Nebraska will begin an 8-game homestand against teams such as UNO, Northern Iowa, Iowa and Ohio State. sports@ dailynebraskan.com
pages: from 1 Once the member base is expanded, SVO can start offering more services in-office, rather than just serving as a middleman to connect student veterans with other organizations. That goal is closer than ever, Jeppesen said. “We are finally getting some traction and getting things moving,” he said. That effort is timely as well. With the recent passing of LB 740, a bill establishing resident tuition rates for outof-state student veterans in Nebraska, more veterans will be considering UNL. The bill goes into effect in July. Couple the bill’s offer with the enrollment goal of 30,000 students and there’s a potential influx of student veterans, making expansion of services all the more crucial. “We aren’t prepared to take in more veterans yet, but we are moving in the right direction,” Jeppesen said.
The Nebraska men’s golf team will travel to French Lick, Ind., Friday to compete in the Big Ten Championships at the Pete Dye Course of the French Lick Resort.

assistant to the chancellor and a member of the task force, agree the successes of the work-study program are proof of progress. Student veterans often have a hard time relating to their peers, who are younger and have different life experiences. Having an office of fellow student veterans to talk with is a valuable service, Waite said. “As veterans themselves, they are a trusted source for our students who may have similar experiences,” she said. The office will continue to have work-study students, Jeppesen said, and will be staffed by at least one during the summer. Looking toward next semester, the buzzword will still be visibility. “We’ve said it before, but it’s just about getting our name out there,” Jeppesen said. news@ dailynebraskan.com

UNL is a military-friendly school, as rated by G.I. Jobs, and the efforts to serve on campus have increased in the past several years but there’s more to be done, Jeppesen said. And he’s not alone in the sentiment. Tom Allison, assistant director of Career Services and member of the Student Veteran Task Force, has expressed a desire to do more for veterans. He’s looking at the student veteran groups on other Big Ten campuses and hopes to model support programs after successful programs such as the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s. “The programs have grown tremendously since the start of the Student Veteran Task Force,” Allison told the Daily Nebraskan in October. “Have we reached our point of maxing out, no, I don’t think so, but I think there is a lot to what we have done and a lot to achieve in the future.” Both Allison and Michelle Waite,
