UNO revealed new logos as part of a Maverick brand makeover Thursday at Embassy Suites in La Vista.
The race toward Omaha's mayoral primary is well under way. Currently, the field features three Republicans-Jean Stothert, Dan Welch, and Dave Nabity; the incumbent Democrat, Mayor Jim Suttle; and Brad Ashford, an Independent.
Ashford, a state senator, is no stranger to Nebraska, having graduated from Westside High School, and gotten his law degree from Creighton University in 1974. He has served in the state legislature since 1986. He also served as director of the Omaha Housing Authority, and owned and managed the Nebraska Clothing Company from 1985-2007.
The UNO Wrestling team won the battle but may have lost the war, capturing a third consecutive national championship just hours before learning the program is poised to be permanently cut.
