Zadora recently made a TV special
with Frank .Sinatra celebrating the
100th anniversary of Las Vegas. She
also has a small role in cult guru John
Waters’ upcoming comedy “Hair
spray,” starring Sonny Bono. In the
film, she plays the beatnik girlfriend
of the Cars’ Ric Ocasck.
“In the film, I have this wig on and
I look likel’m in ‘TheMunstcrs,’”she
Audiences from prerelease screen
ings of “Hairspray” gave Zadora an 80
percent positive response. She says
she loved working with Waters, the
creator of “Pink Flamingos” and
“Polyester,” both known for star Di
vine, a 300-pound transvestite.
“John Waters and I have a little
vicarious affair going on,” she says
jokingly. “I’ve been dying to work
with him.”
Waters and Zadora became
friends when he interviewed
her for American Film
magazine. The interview is included
in his humor book "Crackpot: The
Obsessions of John Waters.
She says she’s received offers for
other films, but for now wants to
concentrate on singing.
“I’m really heavily into my music
now because I don’t want to lose my
credibility,” she says. “It’s a winning
formula for me and I haven’t had a
winning formula before.”
Zadora divides her time between
homes in New York City, Beverly
Hills and Malibu, Calif. She says she
loves the Midwest and would like to
perform here more often.
“I’m a New Yorker and 1 love to get
out of New York when 1 can,” she
And she also wants to spend more
time at home with her husband.
He’s so secure in his own right,
and we went through a lot of crap

For now, Zadora’s biggest goal is
continuing to dispel the myths about
her career.
‘‘I’m the new kid on the block and
I still got to go out there and prove
myself,” she says. “Come out there (to
her concerts) and I’ll kick your tail.”

Duffy fs dispute could change law
by Mick Dyer
Staff Reporter
A law limiting the amount of
alcohol allowed in one drink could
be wiped from Nebraska State
Liquor Commission laws.
An alleged violation of that law
forced Duffy’s Tavern, 14120 St.,
to stop serving drinks in fishbowls
earlier this month.
At a meeting last Thursday,
Duffy’s owners and managers
Reynold McMeen and A1 Hummel
appealed to the commission to
clarify discrepancies concerning
the amount of alcohol that can be
served in one container.
The dri nks served at the ir estab
lishment were apparently in viola
tion ol uie multiple drink act in
Chapter Six, Section 026.04 of the
State Liquor Commission Guide
The act now reads: “For the
puipose of this rule the words
‘drink’ and ‘drinks’ shall mean
with respect to liquor, a container
containing no more than 11/2 fluid
ounces of the same spirits ...”
The rule also sets legal limits on
beer and wine drink sizes.
Forest Chapman, director of the
Nebraska State Liquor Commis
sion, said the commission voted
unanimously Thursday to propose
eliminating the rule from the
commission guidelines.
The drinks sold at Duffy’s con
tained a half gallon of bar patrons’
choice of cocktail and were to be
consumed by two or more people.
The law makes no provision for
drinks intended to be consumed by
a group.
Duffy’s now serves a Fishbowl
drink containing 11/2 fluid ounces
of several different liquors that is
within the parameters of the mul
tiple drink act, Hummel said.
“The people who are strict gin
and-tonic drinkers may be a little
disappointed, but the new fish
bowls may be better than ever,” he
The commission will conduct a
public hearing on Jan. 13 to con
sider input from concerned citi
zens. The commission will then
decide whether to invoke the
administrative procedures act,
which is required by state law to
remove a law from the books,
Chapman said.
“Until then, the rule is still on
the books and will be enforced,”
Chapman said.
