Twenty-six minors received an unwelcome surprise Friday night, when Omaha Police responded to a disturance call reporting at 2211 Maple Street and cited all 26 for minor in possession of alcohol.
Last week, Tanner Johnson called a cardboard box "home." Put together with duct tape and zip ties and painted in a camouflage motif, the box was a few feet tall and a few feet wide.
Johnson joined about 20 fellow Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity members in Just Can It!, a community service project.
More than 500 people attended the 11th annual Heartland Latino Leadership Conference and Expo last weekend, an event aimed to strengthen the community through education, communication and engagement.
The conference was held over a two-day period at the Embassy Suites in LaVista, the Kroc Center and the First National Bank Tower Winter Garden downtown. The event included prominent speakers such as NASA astronaut Jose Hernandez, business leader and entrepreneur Deborah Rosado Shaw and motivational speaker Gabe Salazar.
I'm still having flashbacks of the last encounter I had with Gregg Gillis, aka Girl Talk. It was a biting cold January 9, 2009 at Slowdown, and the recently immortalized Pennsylvanian DJ was in town to host one of his famed electric dance parties. I wasn't sure if the hype surrounding him was "all that," but I quickly learned that Gillis does indeed throw one hell of a party.
