Mayor Jean Stothert is encouraging Omahans to celebrate Martin Luther King Day by sharing their own dreams for the city.
The Mayor’s Office is taking video, photo and written submissions from people spelling out their dreams in three words. Stothert’s entry, for example, is “Make Omaha Extraordinary.”
