Nebraska missed an opportunity to protect its essential meatpacking workers, but 2021 brings new hope.

  • Health officials hope more COVID-19 vaccine doses become available soon, saying they haven’t seen the progress they’d like.

You might need a spark of novelty in your life. As you look out your window, you may wonder whether Omaha has truly become such a barren wasteland, or if you’re staring only at the reflection in the glass. Why have those warm summer days, and the outdoor dining and patio drinking they brought, left us? Mother Nature is a cruel and inscrutable force. Anyway, you could try making some pickles. Or sauerkraut. Or kombucha. If you’re feeling really gutsy, you can try brewing your own beer.
