BY GEORGE GREEN Parking and Transit Services is surveying students this semester about their use of the city bus service. Instead of giving every park ing-permit holder a bus pass, parking services is requiring people to ask for the passes. The parking office will con duct a survey in the fall with stu dents who use the free StarTran bus passes provided by the uni versity, said Tad McDowell, director of Parking and Transit Services. The survey will ask bus pass users to rate the bus system and provide information about how often they use the service, he said. University officials want to know how many students use the bus system to get to campus instead of driving, McDowell said. McDowell said he estimated the bus system prevents about 400 to 500 cars from cluttering campus streets each day. “We want to determine where enhancements and changes should be made,” McDowell said. To conduct the bus survey, university officials are asking students and faculty members who want StarTran bus passes to call Parking and Transit Services to request the passes, McDowell said. Last year, Parking Services distributed bus passes to every student who purchased parking permits, he said. Three thousand students and faculty members have requested bus passes so far this fall, he said. When users pick up their passes, Parking Services puts “We want to determine where enhancements and changes should be made." Tad McDowell director of UNL Parking and Transit Services them on a survey mailing list, McDowell said. In November, bus pass hold ers will receive a brief mail questionnaire asking about the bus system, he said. “We strongly urge everyone to please fill it out so we can improve services,” McDowell said. StarTran began providing bus services for students with free bus passes from UNL five years ago, said Larry Worth, a StarTran transit manager. Last year, StarTran provided 390,000 rides for people from the university, said Jan Bolin, an accountant for StarTran. In addition to evaluating the bus system, parking and transit services is also trying to improve campus parking and traffic by building a new park ing garage, McDowell said. The university is beginning work on a parking garage with over 1700 stalls at 17th and Vine streets, he said. Twelve hundred stalls will be built by Aug. 1,2001, and the 500 remaining stalls will be complete on Oct. 1,2001. “Parking and transit is tak ing a hard look at its programs, the financing of its programs and permit fees,” McDowell said.

MDS Harris Together, We're Making Lives Better 621 Rose Street, Lincoln BY JENNIFER ROTH Last year, Katherine Rush watched in admiration as Rich Waters became the first UNL cadet honored with the Legion of Valor Bronze Cross. On Thursday, others admired Rush in the same way. Rush, an Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps Cadet at the University of Nebraska Lincoln, received the Legion of Valor Bronze Cross for Achievement. Maj. Tammy Lundborg of the Air Force ROTC stressed the importance of the award. Lundborg said it is the sec ond highest-ranking award in the nation given each year to four superior leaders with out standing academic achieve ment. Col. William MacElhaney, commander of UNL’s attach ment, made the surprise announcement Thursday dur ing the beginning of the weekly leadership lab in the Military and Naval Science building. Rush said the award hon ored the program. “It is not only a reflection on me, but on an attachment of the UNL program,” Rush said. Waters and Rush are the first two recipients of this award from UNL. “I was fairly excited to receive this award because I thought Waters’ award last year was something really great,” Rush said. “Now I am proud to be recognized for the same.” The award is given out by the Legion of Valor organiza tion, which is made up of recip ients of the Medal of Honor, the Distinguished Service Cross, the Air Force Cross and the Navy Cross. Founded in 1890, the organ ization has given out awards annually to high school and col lege cadets in the Navy and Air Force programs. Cadets eligible for the award must be in the top 10 percent of their ROTC program and uni versity department courses. Rush is a four-year Air Force ROTC scholarship winner and senior math major at UNL. She holds the No.l leader ship position in the cadet corps, is president of Alpha Delta Pi Sorority and is president of the University Honors Program. Rush recently returned from Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida where she was selected to train other cadets during a summer field-training pro gram. Rush said she credits her attitude and work ethic for her accomplishments. “I am always willing to give my all,” Rush said. “I try to be involved in everything and give 100 percent dedication.” There are no definite plans for Rush in the future, she said, but she does expect to graduate in December 2001. “I want to have some career in the Air Force - a posi tion in acquisitions, intelli gence or public affairs,” she said. “I now have a real desire to serve.” Lincoln man charged in recent stabbing death ■Judge alleges tnat Charles Eagleboy did not premeditate murder but is still responsible.
