  • The first televised debate between Omaha Mayoral candidates Jean Stothert and RJ Neary touches on several topics, including police oversight, public transportation, recycling and annexing. 
  • Nelson Mandela Elementary School is giving back to the Omaha community by collecting canned items, non-perishable items and other goods to donate to the Food Bank for the Heartland.
  • The Douglas County Health Department holds its fist in-school vaccination clinics for students 16 and older at Millard North High School and Omaha South High School.
  • Eight golf carts are stolen from two courses in Omaha, four from Elmwood and four from the Knolls. Although these are city golf courses, they are self-sufficient and self-insured, so the losses aren’t paid for with tax dollars. 
  • UNMC Chancellor Dr. Jeffrey Gold favors sharing millions of doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine with other countries that need them, saying, “It is the humanitarian thing to do.”
  • A new campaign called Do Right, Right Now is aiming to help children struggling with returning to their classrooms after the pandemic, especially minority students.

Your Spring Move-In Guide
Week Four: Eliminate the Excess

Now that you are five weeks out from moving, it is time to temper eating desires and consume the lovely leftovers in your fridge, as well as any other spare items in your pantry. Otherwise, you can donate that food at a drop-off location for Food Bank for the Heartland as many families are in need.

Next, begin to gather and group your non-essential belongings – anything from extra clothes to electronics. You can also eliminate the excess items weighing you down, especially furniture, in several ways: Take the old-fashioned route and organize a garage sale, sell on the Facebook Marketplace or Craigslist, or donate to thrift stores.

Further, if you are moving appliances such as a washer and dryer and don’t know how to disconnect them, it is recommended you call a professional to do so. Breaking your valuables is not the goal here.
