    Robber uses threats
to steal from pharmacy
A robber stole an assortment of pre
scription pain killers from Havelock
Pharmacy on Tuesday evening by
threatening the pharmacist that "bad
things would happen.”
The robber entered the 6136
Havelock Ave. store around 6:45 p.m.
and waited in line until the pharmacist
finished helping another customer.
Lincoln Police Sgt. Todd Beam said.
Then the man - described as white.
30- to 35-years-old. 6 feet 1 inch tall and
190 pounds - handed the pharmacist a
note demanding several drugs, includ
ing morphine and codeine, or bad
r things would happen.
The pharmacist filled the man's
order, though he never displayed a
weapon, and the robber left the store.
Beam said it was unusual for a phar
macy to be robbed strictly for drugs.
Home burglarized
while family on vacation
One Lincoln family returned home
from vacation Tuesday evening to find
an empty garage and ransacked house.
Beam said losses in the burglary are
estimated at S41,847. which includes a
full-size van, and $6,585 damage was
caused to the inside of the house.
Thieves entered the home on the
4900 block of Bear Creek Road
through the garage where the white
1994 Ford custom conversion van had
been parked.
Also taken from inside the house
sometime between Jan. 13 and Tuesday
were tools, computers, jewelry and
stereo equipment.
Anyone with information about the
burglary or the whereabouts of the
$20,000 van, license 2-S9428, can con
tact police at (402) 441-7204.

Exhibit, seminar celebrate photojournalism
SEMINAR from page 1
photojournalists face, but its orga
nizer, George Tuck, said it is a great
chance to learn from some of the
best in the business.
Sartore, Davis and Dean were
all students at UNL and worked
with Tuck, a news-editorial profes
sor, who will open the seminar at
8:30 a.m. with a 15-minute intro
Dean said her passion is socially
concerned photography.
“1 want to bring light to these
problems and show people from
around the world," Dean said.
Dean, who grew up in Broken
Bow, said she became a journalism
major in the early 1970s just so she
could take the photography classes.
She is heading a worldwide pro
ject to examine child-labor issues,
which she will talk about at 11:15
There are 1 1 photographers
working on the project, including
Sartore, who was one of Dean's first
students when she started teaching
in the early 1980s.
Dean taught photography when
she came back to UNL for a gradu
ate degree in journalism, and has
been teaching ever since.
She recently opened her own
school of photography in Los
Angeles, called the Julia Dean
Photo Workshop.
"I feel it is important to make a
contribution to society, and this is
how I can do that,'' Dean said.
Tuck described Dean as
extremely committed to her work,
and he said she lives on less money
than anyone else he knows.
“Julia is phenomenally bubbly
and hard-working,’’ Tuck said. “But
money is not her motivating force.’’
Sartore, a contract photographer
for National Geographic, will dis
cuss some of the requirements pho
tographers must deal with when
working on large projects, such as a
National Geographic book Sartore
shot for.
Before National Geographic,
Sartore worked at The Wichita
Eagle as a news photographer.
Tuck said that when Sartore was
taking his class, he “was always
coming back with pictures of
strange people.”
Sartore was out of town on
assignment this week, and could not
be reached. His presentation begins
at 8:45 a.m.
Buell, who Tuck called the
grand old man of the session, will
present a collection of famous news
photographs along with video inter
views with the photographers at
Buell is a former assistant gen
eral manager for news photos for
The Associated Press.
Davis started his journalism
career as a public relations officer in
the military before getting his jour
nalism degree at UNL in the late
Originally from Tekamah, Davis
started out as a reporter in Beatrice,
where he also took pictures; but it
wasn't until he went to the
University of Missouri-Columbia
for his that he
became interested in photo editing.
After college, Davis worked at
the Albuquerque Journal in
Albuquerque, N.M., and the Detroit
Free Press before getting a job at
National Geographic.
He now' works as a photo editor
and designer for Sun Publications,
which produces 14 newspapers.
“My focus will be telling stories
with pictures as dimensionally as
possible," Davis said about his 9:45
a.m. presentation.
Canon will also have a display
of some of its photography equip
ment during the day.
The day's events will conclude
with a panel discussion at 2:45 p.m.,
and the exhibit will continue to be
displayed through March 14.
TOWING THE LINE is the title of this photo in the College of Journalism and
Mass Communications’ photojournalism collection, part of which is on dis
play at the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery through March 14. The photos on
