Huan Nguyen, an Eagroll Palace manager, eats lunch outside the restaurant in the Reunion.
Nguyen, whose mother owns the restaurant, said he didn’t know where they would go after the
restaurant closes.
Future of Reunion shops unsure
By Doug Kerns
Staff Reporter
Only two businesses remain in the
Reunion, once filled with shops, res
taurants and student customers.
Of those two, George’s Great Gy
ros will leave this month, but the
manager of the Eggroll Palace said
the restaurant had almost a year left
on its lease and no plans to leave.
What will happen to the building
is still uncertain.
David Hunter, the building’s
owffer, said he could not comment on
the building’s status, but he expected
to announce after Labor Day what
will happen to the building. Hunter is
president of State Title Services and a
partner in Hunter and Hardy Build
ing Corporation.
The building at 905 N. 16th St.
once housed other local businesses
such as The Plump Tomato Pizza
Company, Hair Teen Salon and Spell
bound Books and Games.
Those businesses had to leave the
Reunion when their leases expired.
Huan Nguyen , manager of Eggroll
Palace, said he didn’t expect to leave
the Reunion until next summer.
“If they are going to keep
the building open, they
might as well let me
stay. ”
owner of George's Great Gyros
Nguyen’s mother, Quynh Nguyen,
owns the restaurant.
“We don’t have to leave,” Huan
Nguyen said. “I have a year lease
until July ’96.”
George’s Great Gyros’ lease ex
pires at the end of August. Though
most of the other businesses have left,
owner George Kholousi said his busi
ness was doing well.
“If they are going to keep the build
ing open,” Kholousi said, “they might
as well let me stay ”
Kitty Fynbu, owner of Hair Tech
Salon, said she had no time to prepare
to leave the building.
“There was no goodwill there at
all,” Fynbu said, “and that’s what’s
■ J . - .
really frustrating — that he (Hunter)
couldn’t be up front and let us know
what was going on so that we could
prepare instead of having to
Hair Tech has moved to 318 S.
13th St. across from the Comhusker
Hotel, and Fynbu said she was happy
with the move.
“I think it will be better than what
the Reunion was because we’ve got a
storefront, a lot of business traffic
coming by,” she said, “and it’s still
convenient for students.”
Other businesses such as Spell
bound Books and Games haven’t had
as much luck relocating.
“Everything I’ve tried so far has
fallen through,” owner Nate Watt
Watt said he hoped to open a busi
ness with enough space to accommo
date gamers, who are people who play
role-playing and trading card games.
Gaming enthusiasts still use the Re
union food court to play, he said.
Like Fynbu, Watt said he was un
happy with the manner in which he
had to leave the Reunion.
“It was all legal,” he said, “but it
was very inconvenient.”
Murdock Trail meeting scheduled tor tomght

Staff Reporter
The Lincoln Paries and Recreation
Department will hold a public infor
mation meeting on the construction
of the Murdock Trail tonight at 7 at
the Anderson Branch Library, 3635
Touzalin Ave.
The Lincoln City Council recently
approved construction of the trail,
which will run from 48th and rre
mont streets to 112th Street. Devel
oper David H. Murdock donated the
land for the trail last year.
Robert Wright, assistant superin
tendent of planning and construction
for the Parks and Recreation Depart
ment, said he hoped the trail would
be completed from48th to 84th streets
by this spring.
The Murdock Trail will have both
concrete and limestone chip surfaces
for bicyclists, in-line skaters, walk
ers, runners and others.
The trail also will be connected to
other recreational trails in Lincoln. For
example, the Murdock Trail at 84th
Street will be connected with the John
Dietrich Bikeway at 48th Street.
“We will make a loophole be
tween this and other existing trails in
Lincoln,” Wright said.
After 20 years, library dome gets repairs
By Emily Wray
Staff Reporter
Love Library South is receiving a
facelift this semester.
Richard Hoback, a maintenance
manager for Facilities Management,
said the building's slate roof and
cupola were being repaired.
The cupola, or dome, on top of the
building is surrounded by 5 1/2 sto
ries of scaffolding while workers re
pair it, Hoback said. The much
needed repair work began in early
July, he said.
The cupola has been struck by
lightning three times in 20 years, he
said, and has never been repaired
during that time.
Workers will replace and repaint
rotted wood and railings, he said. The
copper covering the cupola also will
be replaced.
The work should be finished by
the end of August, he said.
Hoback said 90 percent of the
$89,000 repair bill would be paid for
by the Legislature’s Task Force for
Building Renewal for Deferred Main
tenance. The university will pay for
the rest of the project, he said.
Love Library South was built in
1942 at a cost of $882,000.

By Tony Michalski

cal field who want to work in a rural
community can get advice at a fair
Friday presented by the University
of Nebraska Medical Center.
The fair will be held in the
Outpatient Care Center Atrium at
44th and Emile streets in Omaha
irom 3 p.m. to / p.m.
Marge Adey, fair coordinator,
said students Could meet medical
workers from rural Nebraska.
“The fair provides an excellent
opportunity for communities to
meet and talk with students about
the benefits and advantages of a
rural practice,” Adey said.
The fair is geared toward rural
Nebraska communities, said
Brenda Jeter ot the Center for Con
tinuing Studies at UNMC.
“We cater to the Nebraska com
munities first,” Jeter said.
But Sherry Cherek of UNMC’s
Center for Continuing Education said
the fair wasn’t strictly business.
“We try to get the health care
professionals and the students to
gether to meet and talk in an infor
mal manner,” Cherek said.
