the week.
“Jail N’ Bail,” sponsored by Project
CARE and Party Smart, will take place
from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. The
Nebraska Union alcove will serve as “jail”
for 30 students and faculty members.
Mock driving while intoxicated
arrests will include handcuffs, finger
prints, inmate uniforms and mug shots.
Participants will be arrested in their
classes and taken to “jail,” where they will
perform a variety of sobriety maneuvers
while wearing beer goggles.

extremely high blood alcohol content
“We hope that this will raise visibility
and increase awareness about the cost
and penalties of drinking and driving,”
said Bob Schroeder, a representative of
Project Care.
The participants must also raise $25
to get out of jail. Project Care will have cell
phones available for the inmates to call
potential donors. The proceeds will go
toward preventative efforts on campus.
On Wednesday, Cather-Pound
Neihardt, along with the Nebraska Office
of Highway Safety Program, will sponsor
a simulated drunken driving car crash at
the Union Plaza at 11:23 a.m.
On Friday, a public debate in the
Union Square at noon will question who
is responsible for alcohol problems on
campus. Members of the NU speech
team, ASUN and the Daily Nebraskan
staff will participate.
The 20 Cameras Project, sponsored
by NU Directions, takes place all week in
the Rotunda Gallery and will combat
negative conceptions about the college
lifestyle. Twenty disposable cameras
were given to random students, and the

students were asked to take pictures of
the ways they spend their time.
“We gave out the cameras and basi
cally just asked students to show us their
lives,” Workman said. “Not everybody's
drinking like a fish.”
Information regarding alcohol will be
available in the Rotunda Gallery
throughout the week to educate students
and staff about the realities of alcohol.
During the week, sorority women on
campus will wear purple ribbons in
remembrance of Laura Cockson, a UNL
student who was killed in a car accident
by a drunken driver three years ago.

■ Stenberg brings in Republican leaders while
Nelson stresses independence in Senate race.
Nebraska’s two senatorial candidates have
highlighted their policy differences over tax cuts
and paying for social security to capture voter sup
port in November's election.
In addition to these differences, former Gov.
Ben Nelson, the Democratic candidate, and
Attorney General Don Stenberg, the Republican
nominee, vie for votes in contrasting fashions.

Republicans to Nebraska to campaign on his
behalf while Nelson rarely brings other Democrats
to the state.
Thanks to help from Nebraska’s other U.S. sen
ator, Republican Chuck Hagel, all of the following

Saucemaker spices up UNL's pizza
What started out as a hobby and a
love for the perfect pizza sauce has
turned into a thriving business for one
UNL employee.
Bill Stevens, supervisor of Cather
Pound-Neihardt Dining Services, is the
chef behind “Outlaw Spice,” a season
ing used in Dining Service’s new
Campus Classic Pizza.
This is the first year the University
of Nebraska-Lincoin has experiment
ed with making its own pizza.
Stevens said he chose the name
“Outlaw Spice” for his pizza seasoning
because he wanted a Western theme to
represent Nebraska.
“It's a name people don’t forget
when they hear it,” Stevens said.
But the story behind the oregano,
garlic and tomatoes goes beyond a
slice of hamburger pizza in the CPN
dining hall.
It started about 20 years ago when
Stevens became interested in the pizza
business while working as a sales rep
resentative at Hormel in Fremont and
later in Grand Island.
After Stevens resigned from
Hormel, he decided to open Sax’s Pizza
Place in Grand Island.
The success of Stevens’ business
was put on hold when a tornado swept
through Grand Island on Jun. 3,1980,
and took his business with it
‘The formula had to be
really precise. You’ve got
to have it so you can taste
everything, but nothing
stands out.”
Bill Stevens
developer, Outlaw Pizza seasoning
Recovering quickly from the loss,
Stevens rebuilt Sax’s Pizza in Grand
Island while building a second restau
rant in Hastings.
Stevens eventually sold his busi
ness in Grand Island, and after living in
Hastings and Austin, Minn., he headed
back to Lincoln.
After working at Valentino’s,
Stevens wanted to own a business
So he opened up “Outlaw Pizza” at
1st Street and Comhusker Highway.
But two years later, another
tragedy, this time a car accident, left
Stevens unable to run his business and
forced him to sell his building and
After recuperating, Stevens said he
was so bored he kept going back into
the kitchen to perfect his pizza sauce.
“I wanted something quick and
easy that still had lots of flavor,”
Stevens said.
After two years, numerous changes
in the formula and lots of taste-testing,
Stevens finally came up with what he
calls “a very, very good product.”
“The formula had to be really pre
cise,” he said. “You’ve got to have it so
you can taste everything, but nothing
stands out."
Stevens does all of the research and
development for “Outlaw Spice” in his
From there, he sends his recipe to a
USDA and FDA approved company
where it is packaged and sent to his
Then, Stevens distributes his pack
ets of “Oudaw Spice” to grocery stores
in Lincoln, Omaha and Council Bluffs
and to Nebraska Food and Gift in
But the work of owning his own
product doesn’t stop there.
Stevens markets his product to gro
cery stores by giving demonstrations
almost every Saturday.
By placing heated sauce on a plain
bagel, people actually get to taste the
sauce, Stevens said.
“When I give a demonstration,
people get to know me and my prod
uct," Stevens said. “It started out slow,
but the product name is getting out
