Hammel is showing his left-leaning bias once again. that's ok for a commentator but disquieting for a "reporter". The folks arrested are not undocumented immigrants but rather ILLEGAL ALIENS!. That's the legal definition. To use any other term is to engage in commentary. If O'Neil is suff…

the bias of the story's reporter(s) is showing. The people arrested were not "undocumented" they were ILLEGAL ALIENS! That's the legal definition. Any other description shows bias.

It would seem that at least one OPS board member realizes that the board, not the Pension Fund Trustees nor the "professional educators" bare the ultimate responsibility for actions of anyone employed by the district. For too long the OPS board has ignored the fact that it can delegate au…

Michael, It is "easy" to obtain a purchase permit as well it should be! The 2nd amendment clearly states that the people's right to own & bear arms shall not be infringed. However that does not mean it is only a cursory investigation. In fact the background check conducted by law enfo…

Yet another attempt to create a solution to a problem that only exists in the heads of urban planners. Omaha metro is a low density city and in low density cities, mass transit is a waste of taxpayer's money. This boondoggle will spend 35MM to build bus stops that will like others with be…

As usual Mr. Hammel's bias is showing. As a reporter he should stick to reporting facts, not "slanting" his reports to sell a "side" of the issue. What was conveniently left out of the "report" was that some feel that not enough was included in the proposed legislation to prevent "big edu…

The property tax "relief" referenced by Mr. Maxwell is not relief, but a tax shift! If one wants property tax relief then one must require government dependent on property tax to spend less. The petition drive, if successful, will have unintended consequences much like the medicare expans…

As usual the tax and spend crowd forgets history and those who ignore history generally repeat it. The last time the state tried property tax "relief" (in the 90's) it had the impact of raising sales & income tax while doing nothing about reducing property tax. the reason then …
