Mysteries Return Minus Flood Water

If you were absent from Omaha all summer, the daily gave you a measure of the rising Missouri River in a series of photos that showed the flood water climbing ever higher on the Salute to Labor statue of workmen, a site seen from Rick’s Boatyard Café.

‘Everything Is Changing’

“It’s been 13 years since buying it” Linda Meigs said. “Little by little, with a lot of help, we’ve been able to restore the historic Florence Mill. It is now a National Register Historic Site.”
