    Keeping culture alive focus of Hispanic event
Sometimes, amidst the onslaught of
mainstream culture, minorities can forget
to keep in touch with their own cultures.
Or at least that’s what one organizer of
tonight’s Hispanic Cultural Heritage
Month event said.
Frederik Hansen, co-coordinator of
the event, said Martin Ramirez, a coun
selor at the University Health Center,
would speak about preserving cultures on
the University of Nebraska-Iincoln cam
pus today at 7 p.m. in the Nebraska Union.
“This program will take a look at
Hispanics and how they should keep their
cultures on campus,” Hansen said.
Ramirez said he would talk about how
Hispanics could preserve their culture for
the future and how they could also use it in
the present.
Society is becoming more tolerant and
aware of the Hispanic population,
Ramirez said, and now Hispanics are
struggling with how they fit into that new
“We don’t know what to call our
selves,” Ramirez said. “That’s the dilemma
with Hispanics right now.”
Ramirez's talk will be followed by a
question and answer dialogue, Hansen
said. Food and beverages will also be avail
Hansen said he hoped this event
would.differ from the usual minority
panel discussions that center on the prob
lems a particular minority group has.
“People talk about issues all the time,”
Hansen said. “We’re trying to do some
thing a little different here. Sometimes it's
other minority and non-minority stu
dents would attend.
It’s important for all students to
understand their cultures and heritage,
Hansen said. This event should help them
do that.
“A lot of people try to be American
because society forces them to,” Hansen
said. “But at the same time, they have to
find a balance.
important to value wnat
you have.”
Though tonight’s event
is in honor of Hispanic
Cultural Heritage Month, it
is not just for Hispanic stu
Hansen said he hoped
How much oi my culture snouia i
keep, and how much should I let go?”
Ramirez said Hispanics were headed
in the right direction.
“It can be done,” he said. “Even though
we’re in the midst of an identity struggle,
we still have to feel good about ourselves
and preserve our culture.”
Woman arrested after
wrestling with officer
A routine parking complaint
went awry Wednesday afternoon
when the car’s owner tried to
interfere with the towing and
assaulted an officer.
Around 2:30 p.m., police were
called to 2013 G St. because a gray
BMW Bavaria had been parallel
parked across the driveway
opening, Lincoln Police Capt.
David Beggs said.
One neighbor, who said he
knew the woman, said she left the
car parked there while she left to
get a credit card because she had
run out of gas.
The parking services officer
and tow truck driver had already
raised the car in preparation for
towing when the woman,
Jennifer TUcker, 20, returned.
“When she got back, her car
was in the air and she became
hysterical,” said the neighbor,
Gary Heumphreus, who lives in
an apartment building next door.
The parking officer called for
backup in dealing with Tucker.
After the officer arrived, Tlicker
continued to be belligerent.
Heumphreus said Tucker was
trying to convince the officers to
i ..
charge the towing to her credit
card and release the car.
At some point during the dis
pute, Tucker and the officer
became tangled in a physical
struggle and ended up wrestling
on the ground, Lincoln Police
Capt. G.R. Imes said. An officer
down call broadcast on police
radios summoned several addi
tional officers to assist.
Fifteen-year-old Kevin Lind,
whose mother made the original
parking complaint, said Tucker
kept yelling she was pregnant
during the struggle in an attempt
to get the officer to stop.
Beggs said hospital tests later
showed flicker was not pregnant
The car was towed, and
flicker was taken to the hospital
for evaluation. The officer was
not injured.
At the hospital, police learned
flicker was also under the influ
ence of a narcotic.
Tucker was arrested for
felony assault on an officer and
four misdemeanor charges:
internal possession of a narcotic,
resisting arrest, failure to comply
with an officers order and inter
fering with a government opera
