The accident left Soucie’s
friends and family with only
memories of a high school star
and questions about his death.
In high school, Soucie al
ways had dreamed of playing
Division I football, McCabe
Soucie played his biggest
game in his home state,
McCabe said. Family and
friends traveled to Lincoln on
Nov. 13,1993, when Iowa State
played the Huskers at Memorial
No one was sure whether
Soucie would even get in the
game, McCabe said.
He came off the bench to
rush for 92 yards on 14 carries.
“He had a great day. That
game was kind of the epitome
of his college career.”
McCabe will deliver
Soucie’s eulogy on Tuesday at
10 a.m. at St. Cecilia’s Catho
lic Church. But he won’t talk
about sports highlights, he said.
Instead, he’ll try to answer
some of the questions asked by
Soucie’s family and friends
about what they should learn
from his death.
“Jeff believed in the sacred
ness of life,” McCabe said. “He
had an untimely death, a very
premature deatn, but he led a
good life and had such a posi
tive outlook ... We’ll be richer
because we knew him.”

Food bank starts new program
By Cittwrin* Blalock
A new program will allow the
Food Bank of Lincoln to pick up
food that has been prepared but not
served by local restaurants, cater
ers and cafeterias.
As a part of the Daily Harvest
program, refrigerated trucks will
pick up the donated food and de
liver it directly to charities that
serve meals. The charities include
homeless shelters, soup kitchens
and day-care centers.
Wende Baker, executive direc
tor of the Food Bank of Lincoln,
said it had taken about a year to
plan the program.
In preparation, the Lincoln
Food Bank observed similar pro
grams in smaller cities, such as
Boulder, Colo. The program there
took in 40,000 pounds of food dur
ing its first year and 100,000
pounds the following year.
Baker said Daily Harvest would
distribute food to shelters such as
the Gathering Place and
Daywatch. The City Mission will
get none of the food, because it al
ready collects its own perishable
and prepared food, she said.
Before the program began, each
shelter had to pick up the perish
able food that was donated to the
food bank. Now, the food bank will
pick up and distribute the prepared
and perishable food.
The program was made possible
partly by the The Rogers Founda
tion and the Solar Club. Each or
ganization donated $5,000 to help
the food bank purchase a refriger

The food bank made its first
stop at Southeast Community Col
lege on Nov. 17. The college do
nated three tubs of soup and 16
burritos, Baker said.
“We raised enough food to feed
16 people,” she said.
Only three restaurants will do

These include the Southeast Com

Gary Westergren, senior vice

of a second college in Omaha.

For the first time in 20 years, the

The Lord Mayor of Ireland invited

band will perform as part of the pa
rade. The wind ensemble also will
perform in the International Concert
Band festival at the Historic National
Concert Hall in Dublin and in the
Limerick International Contest.
Kloeckcr said he hoped to raise
enough money to pay for all band
members' traveling expenses.
Jennifer Franta, a flag line mem
ber who is helping to coordinate pro
motions for the trip, said the univer
sity was not helping to Finance the
trip, so the band must raise the money
Klocckcr said, “The plan is for
cvciy member of the band to make
the trip to Ireland, with a wide range
of fund-raisers to make it possible for
all to go to Dublin.”
To raise money, the band has or
ganized many events, such as ben

businesses or private groups donate
$1,500 in a band member’s name.
The band also has organized a
raffle with 10 prizes, ranging from a
car stereo to a trip for two to Ireland

Klocckcr said the band had not
made an international trip since
1974. The band will leave for Ireland
