Making It Rain

Using buckets and a wet/dry vac to remove ankle deep rainwater out of the basement of The Reader’s South Omaha location with then-news editor and cartoonist Neal Obermeyer, my last day as TR’s managing editor was highlighted by the same kind of charm that I’d both become accustomed to, and had genuinely come to appreciate.

Abide applies holistic approach to building community

Former Bellevue West hoops star and Creighton University point guard Josh Dotzler has lived through the saga of Abide, the northeast Omaha ministry his parents started in 1989.

Twenty-five years ago Ron and Twany Dotzler stepped out on faith to move their large multi-cultural family – he's white and she's black – from the suburbs to the inner city to pursue a community-focused calling. Gangs...
