Randy Santel’s Midwest USA Food Challenge

You love him for his heroic feats of eats, come cheer him on as he heads our way to take on some of Omaha’s biggest bites. Santel’s Midwest Food Challenge kicked off this week with a victory over the Big Joe at Frank’s Pizzeria. The 12 pound New York style veggie lover’s pizza was no match for Santel and Katina Eats Kilos, downing the beast in 33 minutes and 30 seconds.

Happy National Shrimp Scampi Day

Be careful ladies and gents, this news is coming hot off the stove: Omaha’s construction industry sees a 2% decline in jobs in the past year, OPPD picks its new CEO, and Nebraska lawmakers stop a bill that would use tax credits to pay for private school tuition.

Your Spring Move-In Guide
Week Six: Remember to Not Forget

The moving date nears. With less than one month from your move, you have probably realized by now that you must address the issue of your incoming mail. Fortunately, the United States Post Office makes it easy to schedule the switch online. They will forward your mail to your new destination worry-free.

What’s more, if you have any regular service providers, say, for a landscaping service, you should thank them and inform them that you will no longer be needing their services.

Note if you haven’t told your friends and family that you’re moving, you might want to do that now, too. But if you’re going for the element of surprise, then, by all means, use discretion.

Finally, if you have children, you may want to schedule a babysitter for the moving day. You don’t need to be worried about more than you can handle, especially during such a big day.
