omaha news: Ground Breaking for New Stadium in Sarpy County - 08/16/09 01:04 AM
Ground breaking for the new Omaha Royals stadium in Sarpy County last Wednesday was reminiscent of the Field of Dreams, except it was the real thing. There was a large crowd of enthusiastic baseball fans surrounded by  cornfields.  As the crowd awaited the ceremony, they were treated to the usual ballgame fare of hotdogs, peanuts, and cold drinks.

Television watchers who dislike having frequent program interruptions will be happy to know that the National Weather Service has changed the criteria for interruptions.  Now, thunderstorms worthy of interruption must be capable of producing hail that is an inch in diameter and have winds of at least 58 mph.  These revised conditions would be considered dangerous for life and property. 
With fewer warnings, the public will know that the interruptions should be taken more seriously.

omaha news: New Addition to Henry Dorley Zoo's Desert Dome - 04/09/09 02:43 AM
The Henry Dorley just keeps getting better.   Last Thursday there were huge, prickly additions to the Desert Dome in the form of five1,500 pound cactuses.  Each cactus was 12 to 13 feet.  There were planted on the top level of the dome. It took a good hour to plant each cactus.
They were transported from Tucson, Arizona from an area that was being cleared for development.  The move saved the cacti form being destroyed which would have been tragic since they are approximately 75 to 85 years old.
