The last weekend of March may be more like
die Ides of March for a student’s financial situation.
Fresh from taking a fiscal beating over Spring
Break, some students also may be hurting because

knowledge about sports cheerfully walk away with
the office pool, you may want to null your sorrows
over beverages and food. Fortunately, some
Lincoln establishments are providing specials that
are tasty as well as easy on the wallet

3 Doors'nit Lincoln
This Saturday, Brad Arnold, Matt
Roberts, Chris Henderson, Todd Harrell
and Rich Liles will be coming to Lincoln.
These are the Mississippi-bred mem
bers of 3 Doors Down.
Their second to last show on this leg
of their tour is bringing them to the
Pershing Auditorium. They will be per
forming with Oleander and Fuel.
Once their hit single started receiving
airplay at a nearby radio station in Biloxi,
Miss., 3 Doors Down went from small
town boys to world travelers.
Since being signed to
Republic/Universal Records, 3 Doors
Down has toured the globe and country
numerous times promoting their debut
album, “The Better Life.”
But their success started in a small
Mississippi town called Escatawpa.
Although some may think Lincoln is a
small town, Henderson explained the
geography of a town with about 3,000
“We got one red light, a grocery store,
a tobacco store, about 30 churches and
that’s about it,” Henderson said. “But the
light starts blinking at night.”
Since Escatawpa is such a small town,
Henderson said that it only took 15 min
utes for everyone to realize he was home
and then the phone would start ringing
But Henderson thought he was going
to spend his life in the small town, but as
their album title states, the members are
now on to a better life.
“(Success) was absolutely a shock,”
Td like to slow down a little
bit, but I cant There's still
more places we haven't
Chris Henderson
3 Doors Down member
Henderson said. “I thought I was stuck
there. I'm a very lucky man."
Now with three hit singles,
"Kryptonite," “Duck and Run" and
“Loser," 3 Doors Down is about a year
into a nearly two-year tour.
Henderson admitted that although
time on the road was wearing, he was not
getting burnt out, just tired.
“I have a habit of staying up late,"
Henderson said. “I don’t know how I keep
After seeing so many different places
and people, Henderson said he liked
playing in the smaller towns, even though
there was not much to da
Henderson said that what he was
looking forward to was some time off
after this tour.
Even though, he said, it’s impossible
to ever really get time alone.
Even though time on the road is
tough, Henderson said the band was not
done yet
“I’d like to slow down a little bit, but I
can’t," Henderson said.
“There’s still more places we haven’t
■Tonight show will present
seven works written by visiting
The UNL Dance Division's
next concert, “Diverse
Connections,” truly lives up to
its name.
The concert will be per
formed tonight at 7:30 p.m. and
Sunday at 2 and 7 p.m. in
Kimball Recital Hall. Tickets are
$10 for adults and $5 for stu
dents and will go on sale one
hour before each show.
The concert’s seven pieces
were all choreographed by fac
ulty and visiting artists. Lisa
Fusillo, professor of dance at
UNL, choreographed two
pieces. Charlotte Adams from
the University of Iowa and C.
Nicholas Johnson from Wichita
State University, both guest
choreographers at UNL, each
choreographed one piece, and
Sara Semonis, a guest lecturer at
UNL, choreographed three.
The seven pieces to be per
formed were chosen to reflect
the wide variety of dance
offered at UNL.
“There’s a little bit of every
thing," said Semonis, “from
modem dance to ballet”
The seven pieces also con
tain a variety of music from
composers such as Phillip
Glass, Antonio Vivaldi and
Franz Schubert.
Diversity also is witnessed
in those performing in “Diverse
There is a wide range of
students,” Semohis said.
There axe about 30 students
Most have majors or minors
in dance. There are some stu
dents from the theater depart
ment as well as students who
are simply taking technique
classes offered by the Dance
"Diverse Connections” also
has encouraged collaboration
among different departments.
For the piece “Returning to
the Departure,” composed by
Vivaldi and choreographed by
Semonis, the Dance Division
collaborated with the Textiles,
Clothing and Design depart
A class designed and con
structed the piece’s costumes,
bringing, as Semonis put it,
"two art forms together.”
