Re: Official: Omaha Streetcar Discussion

Spending this kind of money for a very small segment of downtown is just an ignorant idea that wold appeal to only those that live in the immediate area. Even if EVERY one of them rode it religiously, how many years of ridership would you need to recoup the yearly maintenance cost, let alone the as...

I'd say it's a move accommodating future expansion. From what I understand, they will only be using a fraction of the buildings initially.

Re: Southport (126th - Giles - I80)

I actually liked the place a lot, was disappointed to see it fail. A different spin on the Brazilian steak house. A buffet with a gaucho chef serving a few meat selections. They charged by the pound. I thought the food was very good.

Re: Lumberyard District (Downtown Millard)

I'm pretty sure there's a lot of section 8 people in those apartments north of L Street Marketplace off 132nd, yet the market for the surrounding real estate looks just as tight as it is anywhere else in Omaha. Bearing in mind, 'old town' Millard isn't exactly the most desirable area to begin with.

Natural attrition will ultimately leave today's progressives in power by default. It's the way of things. Enjoy a last gasp of conservatism for the time being. No offense 'grandpa', but you'll be dead soon enough (note that wasn't necessarily directed at you, Smucker, just your people :) ).

14,000 show up for Omaha Women's March

I would guess this was one of the largest marches of this kind to take place in Omaha. World Herald reported that it spanned some 14 blocks. We walked down Capitol to 13th, south to the Old Market, down Howard... it was quite a sight. https://img2.brain4.photobox.com/00144170022d12c65ef61e704e72a9b4...
