HERE’S YOUR RUNDOWN

Happy National Watermelon Day
Reed Moore keeps planting the seeds but doesn’t understand why Mother Earth never bears fruit.

Today’s news:

  • Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert is out of Omaha about one out of every four days and misses major events like fires and floods.
  • The Omaha City Council approve funds to hire a consultant on diversity, continuing a push for equity and inclusion that started in the summer of 2020.
  • Native advocates are taking their fight to stop a Lincoln housing development to the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals.

Every vote registers you to win prizes, including Stir Concert Cove
tickets, and gift certificates from local restaurants and businesses.
