On July 26, more than 1,000 candles illuminated Omaha's Memorial Park in support of a Lincoln woman who was victim to a heinous hate crime.
Early this semester, the worst snowstorm of the year swept across Omaha. Weather forecasters predicted over 12 inches of snow overnight, with more expected the next day.
We all saw it coming. Icy road conditions, subzero temperatures and dangerous wind chills were predicted for the start of the week. By Monday, it was clear that travel the next day would be difficult at best. By 9 p.m., every primary and secondary school and some colleges in the Omaha area had canceled school for Tuesday, and many daycares shut down in anticipation of dangerous road conditions.
