liquor license at six out of seven Lincoln
Kwik Shops during Monday’s coun

Jo Gutgsell, a council member,
said the decision was made on the
basis of how well certain areas of
Lincoln were served by off-sale liq

The need was determined by the
amount of off-sale liquor stores within
a seven block radius of each Kwik
Gutgsell said the six Kwik Shop
stores don’t need liquor licenses be
cause there are enough liquor stores
in surrounding areas to meet demand.
Donald Dunn, an attorney repre
senting Kwik Shop Inc., said the Kwik
Shop has “demonstrated it is quali
fied for a license.”
Dunn said Lincoln has the lowest
amount of off-sale liquor stores per
capita of anywhere in Nebraska.
He said the “problems” related to
alcohol occur mostly in places such
as bars.
John Gast, the division manager of
the Kwik Shop stores in Nebraska,
said there are several Kwik Shops
throughout the slate that have liquor
He said employees arc trained to
handle situations involving alcohol
and the store has had success selling
Gutgscll said the Kwik Shop at

But too much logging and con
troversial harvesting techniques
have drawn criticism.
Rictveld said clcarcutting, a
technique in which every tree is
indiscriminately cut down, is the
only technique that can be used to
harvest Douglas fir.
Because young Douglas fir seed
lings must have unobstructed sun
light to grow, replanting in cleared
areas is the only option, he said.
The Forest Service also recog
nizes that slashburning, burning
discarded branches and growth to
clear an area for replanting, is
dangerous to the ozone layer, he
said. The service is searching for
alternatives, Rictveld said.
“The Forest Service is anxious
to do the right thing,” he said. “ .

kinder, gentler Forest Service
through New Perspectives.”
