of activities
By Jeff Zeleny
Senior Reporter
Nebraska fans have much more
to eat and stomp on than buffalo
this weekend in Boulder, Colo.
When a flock of students and
Comhusker faithful travels west to
the Rockies for the annual Ne
braska-Colorado football show
down, a mile-high city full of food,
fun and music awaits.
Boulder, which The Denver Post
hails as “The little town nestled
between the mountains and real
ity,” is alive with excitement. The
eight-hour drive from Lincoln may
not turn you into Colorado fans,
but it wili almost certainly make
you crave a return visit.
Nebraska sold its ticket allot
ment of4,000 almost immediately,
said Nebraska Ticket Manager
Cindy Bell. About 800 students
also purchased tickets to watch
No. 2 Nebraska play No. 7 Colo
rado. The game is televised on
ABC (Channel 7) at 2:30 p.m. Sat

students who were lucky enough
to win the student migration ticket
lottery are sure to enjoy the city.
Locals recommend sipping
margaritas on a rooftop bar or
drinking locally brewed beer,
which runs as free as water in this
land of the Rockies.

find Colorado students in a less

New access channel developing
By Brian Jensen
Staff Reporter
CableVision announced Thursday
that a new community access chan
nel will soon be available to the pub
After some channel shuffling to
accommodate the new addition, con
troversial public access will move
out of its Channel 14 slot and up to
Channel 20.
The announcement came at the
Thursday night meeting of the Cable
TV Advisory Board.
The main difference between the
two channels, as developed so far, is
that public access has little or no
restrictions for getting a program on
the air. With the new community
access, that process may become more

the program that aren’t available now
with other access channels,” said Rick
Kiolbasa, CableVision director of
government and public relations. -
CableVision officials would not
specify what had motivated them to
produce a new community access
station. They also would not address
past controversial shows of the Closet
Comedian Scott Harrold shown on
public access.
Public access and Harrold’s “Cos

local criticism.
Harrold, one of the public access
users, made his story on freedom of
speech famous in September when he
wore clown make-up and mastur

Harrold was cited for public inde

will be in court Monday to answer
Last month, the board voted 7-2 to
recommend the City Council elimi
nate public access.
One board member asked for clari
fication about the decision to add
community access, saying: “Were you
just bored?” Kiolbasa laughed, but
declined comment.
“We would prefer not to speculate
on that at this time,” he said.

Show” is still being aired, but the
shows no longer contain any sort of
The most controversial show was
made after city officials had already
attempted to ban public access. Be

A university professional group
has stepped in to help an 11-year-old
girl win a desperate race against time.
Chanel Jenkins-Todd — the
daughter of Lynda and Thomas Todd,
both university employees — has
developed renal meddulary carci
noma cancer.
Lynda Todd said doctors hoped a
bone marrow transplant would cure
Chanel; but the operation costs
$250,000 and isn’t covered by the
Todds’ health insurance.
The University Association for
Administrative Development is help

to help pay for the operation.
But there is no loiown cure for
Chanel’s disease, said Lynda Todd,

Chanel’s disease is so rare that she
is only the 35th patient in the nation
to be diagnosed with it. Her mother
said no one with this type of kidney
cancer had survived more than six
months after diagnosis.
Chanel was diagnosed with the
disease in July.
