Lawmaker Limbo – A Trip To the Unicameral at Halftime

Lawmaker Limbo – A Trip To the Unicameral at Halftime
Tax Cut or Tax Expenditure?
by Kandra Hahn

As the 103rd Nebraska Legislature tipped over the halfway mark of its short session, a haze of tentativeness seemed to hang in the hallways and hearing rooms at the Capitol. 

Exigent issues had not, at that point, dislodged the long-predicted targets of tax change and Medicaid expansion, known...

SXSW: Badges? You Don’t Need No Steenk-ing Badges

As I type this I’m already at South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas. In fact, I’ve been here since Sunday afternoon, taking in the Interactive portion of the conference, sent to learn the latest in digital media for my day-job.

The “vacation” part of the trip — the part I’m documenting for The Reader — begins Wednesday when I switch hats and cover the music portion of the...

Brain Drain or Brain Gain?

The names seemed to be piling up. One after another I kept hearing about young, talented musicians moving away from our great city — our great state — to find lives elsewhere. In most cases, “elsewhere” is Los Angeles.

Ex-gonzo journalist-turned-filmmaker resolved to celebrate debate

 

Omaha ex-pat James Marshall Crotty, co-creator of the underground Monk magazine and author of alternative city guides, gained a cult following for his irreverent dashboard reporting about America's fringes. His arch leanings are on display in two documentaries he's produced-directed showing at the March 5-9 Omaha Film Festival.

Both films focus on a subculture subject close to his heart,...

For Sale: One Civic Auditorium, Slightly Used

I am perhaps singularly alone in my disdain for MECA and the City of Omaha for first mothballing the Civic Auditorium from hosting any large concerts and now “selling” it. My contempt over last week’s announcement is (admittedly) a product of personal nostalgia, as well as loathing for The CenturyLink Center (a.k.a. The CLink).

Yes, I saw a lot of concerts at the Civic during the heyday of...

Terence “Bud” Crawford in the fight of his life for lightweight title

As Omaha glories in Creighton Bluejays hoops superstar Doug McDermott's historic season, another local sports figure going for greatness flies under the radar.

Top Rank boxer Terence "Bud" Crawford challenges for the WBO lightweight title March 1 against champion Ricky Burns in the title holder's native Scotland. The scheduled 12-rounder is being televised in the States by AWE, a hard to find...
