A man found three bullet holes in his car and a window broken after
hearing shots fired outside his house Monday night at 1020 Washington
Andre Tarter told police he heard four shots fired in an alley behind
his house. He looked outside, but did not see anything.
When he came out two days later to start his car, he found the bullet
holes — two in the passenger door, one in the bumper — and a broken
passenger-side window. In the alley, he found four 9 mm shell casings.
Damage was estimated at $200.
Gang-related graffiti was found Wednesday spray painted on the west
wall of Lincoln Southeast High School, 2635 S. 63rd St.
School officials reported that the graffiti was painted sometime be
tween 3 p.m. Tuesday and 9 a.m. Wednesday. Vandals painted “CMG 4
Life” and “BD Killer.”
There was a gang-related fight inside the school before the graffiti
incident, officials told police, and several students will be expelled as a
Aid-in-Dying Ml debated
DYING from page 1

amended this commandment ”
But just sustaining life isn’t a good
reason not to pass the bill, some pro
ponents said.
Carl Schmitthausler, president of
Hemlock Nebraska, said quality of
life was important even if medication
could soothe the pain.
“We question the quality of life
of the person who has to be tied in
bed and chair, toileted and sedated,
who has no opportunity to recognize
friends and loved ones,”
Schmitthausler said.
“The dying person has every right
to say, ‘Enough, enough, I don’t want
to endure this anymore,”’ he said.
“Pain is one of the variables, but by
no means the only one. ”
Matt LeMieux, director of the Ne
braska American Civil Liberties
Union, said those opposed should
simply not exercise that right and let
others choose for themselves. He said
the practice was being performed,
and needed regulations.
Murray Schmechel, a United
Methodist clergyman, said he must
counsel people who struggle with
assisted-death decisions. One
woman, he said, withheld medication
so her husband could die after a long
bout with Alzheimer’s.
“I need those people whom I
counsel to have that freedom,” he
said. “... we need to have that ability
to make a choice, regardless of where
you come down on a religious per
“I celebrate a God in my life who
is a God of life and is also the God of
death, who says that death is not the
final chapter.”

NAVY LT. ERIC PRICE stands Thursday morning In front of an F-18 Hornet In a Duncan Aviation hangar at
Lincoln Municipal Airport. Price graduated from UNL in 1989.
Fighter jet rests in Lincoln;
students inspired by sight

The war hawk has landed in Lin
At least, a neutered version of an
F-18 fighter jet rested Wednesday in
a hangar at Lincoln Municipal Air
port. Fully-armed models were used
in the Persian Gulf War and Bosnia.
But this unarmed, two-seater
trainer—which can fly at 1 ‘/2-times
the speed of sound —£ arrived Tues
day for a two-day layover. The mis
sion was to give Navy Lt. Aaron
Keenan of U.S. Airbase Lemore a
break from his two-hour training
flight from southern California.
The opportunity also afforded
University of Nebraska-Lincoln
ROTC students a peek at the ma
chine they may be piloting someday,
and gave 1989 UNL graduate Lt.
Eric Price a speedy return visit to
“Coming to Lincoln was good
(public relations) for us,” said Price,
who supervised Keenan on the flight.
“It puts a face to a name. These stu
dents hear about the plane. Now they
can say they’ve seen it.”
Kent Leonard, an ROTC cadet,
said the sight was motivation.
Leonard anticipates taking basic
training in the Navy after graduation. '
“The earliest I’ll be able to fly
an F-18 is in two years,” Leonard
said. “If I have my choice of mod
els, though, it’ll be this one.”
Price said he and Keenan would
return to the wild blue yonder this
“They don’t like their birds too
far from home,” Price said. t* -
