Orr's agency appointments;
Bare and Rocltford named
By Linda Hartmann
Associate News Editor
Gov.-elect Kay Orr made her first state agency
appointments Wednesday, reappointing Larry
Bare as director of the Department of Adminis
trative Services and naming John Rochford as
state budget administrator.
Bare, 38, was appointed by Gov. Bob Kerrey
last June to fill the unexpired term of William R.
Giovanni as DAS director while also completing
his fifth year as state budget administrator. Bare,
a native of Rushville and a UNL graduate, joined
the Department of Economic Development in
1971 as a community-development specialist. He
filled a variety of DED positions and was named
deputy director in 1979. He later was deputy
director and then director of the Policy Research
office until 1981 when he joined the Department
of Administrative services as state budget admin
istrator. Rochford, 46, has been Orr's deputy during her
term as state treasurer. The Valentine native and
UNL graduate returned to the DAS Budget Div
ision after five years in the state treasurer's
office as deputy. He was a senior executive man
agement analyst for four years in the Budget
Division following a year in the Policy Research
Office as a special assistant to the governor. He
spent five years as a legislative fiscal analyst
after entering state government in 1971 as an
economist for the Natural Resources Commission.
Both men have served three previous adminis
trations. "I . . . know of the professional contribution
that they've made over the years," Orr said of the
two appointees at a press conference.
The governor-elect is responsible for appoint
ing directors of 28 state agencies for her admin
istration, which will assume office in January.
She said she would like to fill some of her
administrative appointments with women and

Kerrey says he will sign
amended Farmstead Act
By Michael Hooper
Senior Reporter
Although Gov. Bob Kerrey is concerned
about a provision of the revised version of the
Farmstead Act that allows agricultural lend
ers to waive their right to redeem a homes
tead, he said Wednesday that he will sign the
The original law was intended to allow
some farmers in the face of foreclosure to
keep a home and up to 160 acres of land.
Kerrey said he didn't like the amendment
that lets borrowers waive their right to desig
nate a homestead that they could later
attempt to redeem if they faced foreclosure.
He said, however, that LB3, is an improve
ment to the Farmstead Act, which passed as
LB999 in the 1986 session.
"In my opinion the legislature did pre
cisely what they intended to do," Kerrey said
at a press confeence, "which was to improve
LB999. . ."
Agriculture lenders have said that the orig
inal law tightened credit because it made it
difficult for them to make sure they had suffi
cient collateral for loans.
Sen.JohnDeCampofNeligh sponsored the
amendment allowing borrowers to waive their
right to designate a homestead. Senators
adopted it earlier this week.
. Kerrey said he would have preferred not to
have the amendment in the bill.

"We have a great deal of work," she said. Orr
said meetings to discuss the budget are sche
duled for nearly every day next week. She reiter
ated her campaign promise not to raise taxes,
and said she will look at every opportunity to
eliminate waste and inefficiencies in the use of
state tax dollars.
Orr said, however, that the budget plan she
presents to the legislature is not likely to be
lower than the current $839 million budget.

Clifford said. "Lincoln police were very re-j

done, they agreed."
A fire truck will be at the rally and a steel
stock tank will be used to contain the fire.
The Updowntowners have taken out a financial
responsibility bond to pay for possible street
damages, Clifford said.
If the weather is bad, the rally will take
place without a bonfire, Clifford said.
Students redesign
historic Haymarket
By Beth Thew
Staff Reporter
UNL graduate architecture stu
dents have studied Lincoln's Hay
market district for many years. This
year, with downtown-redevelopment
plans displacing many businesses,
interest has been renewed in the
The historic area around Eighth
and P streets was chosen for a grad
uate architecture project in part
because of Joseph Esherick, the
first Hyde Chair of Excellence lec
turer. The lecturer program is a vis
iting professorship in memory of A.
Leicester Hyde. Esherick is nation
ally known for his development of
the Cannery district in San Fran
cisco, Calif. For this reason, UNL
architecture professors Allan A.
Quick, Bill Corner and Ernest Moore
decided to focus on an urban-design
problem, according to Quick.
First semester graduate students
in an architecture design process
class will probably complete the
prcjsct during the first week in
December, Quick said.
As a preliminary exercise, the
students entered and won a design
competition held in Topkea, Kan.,
for midwestern universities.
The students then held a week
end "charete," an intensive brain
storming and data-gathering session.
Employees from Lincoln city govern
ment were present to give informa
tion about traffic flow, streets and
sewer systems in the area The stu
dents need this information to
complete their plans, Quick said.
"The students worked together
on the master plan. To arrive at it
they used alot of conversation, con
flict, discussion and controversy,"
Quick said.
After the charete the students
chose buildings that they would
like to work on, Moore said. Some
students also worked in teams on
buildings such as the Hardy Build
ing and the Depot, he said.
"Since it's a historic district,
some things on the outsides of the
buildings can't be changed," Moore
said. The objective is to keep the
old-time flavor of the area and turn
it into an area like the Old Market
in Omaha.
Students then took pictures of
the buildings, dug up building plans
and took measurements.

John Soul, a student in the class,
said the project was difficult at
times since many of the buildings
had been changed since the original
plans were made. He also said stu
dents had trouble working within
the budgets the building owners
gave. Renovation to meet fire-code
standards is expensive, Soul said.
Zunaibi Abdullah, another grad
uate architecture student, agreed.
"For the building I'm working on,
there weren't any building plans be
cause the building is too old,"
Abdullah said. "They just didn't
have any plans for it at City Hall. I
had to go down to the building and
take all the measurements."
Staying within the budget is part
of the learning process of the pro
ject, Moore said.
