Remodeled bakery brings in business
By Tasha E. Kelter
It is really hard to miss.
From the windows to the neon
lights to the tile pillar, the new
bakery in the Nebraska Union
caught many an eye in its first week
of operation since renovation.
“It’s very well-accepted,” said
Richard Williams, director of food
service for the union.
While under construction, the
bakery spent last semester in the
middle of the union.
With the new bakery, students
still can get doughnuts, muffins,
fresh fruit, sandwiches, soda, cof
fee, tea, cappuccino and espresso.
New to the menu, however, is fro

lobby the Nebraska Legislature for a
$7 million appropriation for faculty
and staff raises.
Gov. Ben Nelson denied the S7

week. The money would fund a 4

institutions, Smith said.
Last year, a 4 percent salary in

veto of the increase was overridden.
But the increase did not carry over to
The other major concern Smith
outlined was bouncing back from the
denial of a philosophy major at UNK.
Last Thursday, the Coordinating
Commission for Postsecondary Edu
cation denied UNK.’s proposal for a
philosophy degree. The regents had
approved the major in July.
“I’mobviously very disappointed,”
Smith said. “I hope this doesn’t signal
a power struggle between the board
and the commission.”
The commission denied the pro
posal because of duplication with a
philosophy major at Hastings Col
lege. The major would not have re
quired any additional funding.
“I don’t know how we can come
back with a proposal that makes any
more sense,” he said.
Regent Charles Wilson of Lincoln
said he was “very distressed” about
the commission’s rejection.
“For that to be considered duplica
tion, there is simply no connection.”
