Grace: For 34 years, City Council aide's briefcase has helped keep Omaha on track
Mayors and City Council members have come and gone, but for 34 years, this briefcase has carried on.

The brown briefcase sitting on Jim Dowding's office floor at City Hall is old. The leather is stained and cracked, the corners are worn white. The interior lining is ripped. Both handles are loose, and one is wound with masking tape.
Still, the bag that Lou Andersen first carried into City Hall in 1979 for a then-new job as City Council aide does its job.
