    Omaha World Herald(Buffet's Rag) ^ | May 9, 2017 | By Roseann Moring and Jeffrey Robb
    Omahans can expect four more years of City Hall focus on public safety and the budget — and maybe a new riverfront — after Mayor Jean Stothert easily won re-election. Stothert won 53 percent of the votes to challenger Heath Mello’s 46 percent in the final unofficial count, with a particularly strong showing in the western part of the city. “To the community I love, thank you for rehiring me,” she said. “I’ll work harder than ever to make you proud of our work.” She said her focus during her second term will be public safety, the budget, workforce development,...

    NYT ^ | 3 May 2017 | By RICHARD GOLDSTEIN
    Col. Leo K. Thorsness, one of the most highly decorated American airmen of the Vietnam War and a belated recipient of the Medal of Honor for his heroism on a mission that took place 11 days before he was shot down and taken prisoner, died Tuesday in Jacksonville, Fla. Colonel Thorsness, who had been brutalized during his six years of captivity at the notorious North Vietnamese prison known as the Hanoi Hilton, where he was a cellmate of John McCain’s, was 85. His death was announced by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society, which said he had been treated for...
  • Enough of the Precocious Conservakids!

    For some unfathomable reason, conservatives always seem to get excited when a moderately articulate post-puberty pundit comes along and parrots some simulacrum of conservative doctrine – except it almost always ends up like when my retriever-corgi mix tries to walk on her stubby back legs and we gasp in delight, “Look, Bitey thinks she’s people!” This is not a criticism of young people; it’s a criticism of us grown-ups, and a recognition of reality that keeps biting us on the Jeb. We need to dispense with the cute kid conservative novelty acts and understand that our ideology – unlike liberalism...
  • DONNELLY: Jerry Brown’s California Legacy is a Dam Failure

    Breitbart ^ | 13 Feb 2017 | by ASSEMBLYMAN TIM DONNELLY
    The Oroville Dam — at 770 feet, America’s tallest — is on the verge of failing. And Sacramento, which has been fiddling for decades while Rome burns, is running for cover. This isn’t just any dam; it’s the primary storage facility located on the Feather River for the State Water Project, the state-owned conveyance system that provides drinking water to more than two-thirds of California’s population. If the dam were to fail, it could inundate not only the city of Oroville but numerous other communities downstream, including Yuba City, Marysville and even West Sacramento. At the moment, the emergency spillway...

  • Ratings restored: Effective immediately, sailors will get their job titles back

    Navy Times ^ | December 20, 2016 | By: David B Larter and Mark Faram,
    Navy leaders are reversing their controversial decision to eliminate sailors’ ratings and will restore job titles across the fleet, according to a Navy message set for release Wednesday. Effective immediately, enlisted sailors will officially regain their ratings, the traditional job titles that have inspired a deep cultural loyalty and that have defined enlisted career tracks for generations, Navy officials said. The move comes three months after the Navy stunned sailors around the world in September by eliminated ratings titles, including those such as boatswain’s mate that dated back to the founding of the service. The extraordinarily rare move comes after...
  • Navy’s Top Officer “Underestimated” Negative Feedback Before Scraping Historic Navy Ratings

    Gannett's Navy Times; American Military News.com ^ | DECEMBER 9, 2016 | By: David B. Larter, Gannett's Navy Times; "STAFF WRITER 4"
    In late September, Richardson announced that the Navy would be getting rid of all of their enlisted ratings and that the service would be headed in a new direction. Military officials said that the purpose for the change is so that service members can more easily adjust to civilian life and no longer be defined by their job titles by broadening their career fields. The decision received a great deal of backlash from sailors since Navy ratings have been around for centuries. The ratings system was also scrapped because of Navy Secretary Ray Mabus’s order to make ratings “gender neutral”...

    Thank you very much, thank you very much.

  • GOP’s Dan Dawson ends Mike Gronstal’s more than 30-year tenure in the Iowa Legislature

    The long legislative career of Iowa Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal has ended. The Democrat who has represented Council Bluffs and Carter Lake in the Iowa Legislature for more than 30 years lost his re-election bid Tuesday. Gronstal first won election to the Iowa Senate in November 1984. Before that, he served one term in the Iowa House. Republican challenger Dan Dawson said Tuesday that he was “humbled” to be elected. Dawson, who serves in the Army Reserve and has deployed to Kosovo, Iraq and Afghanistan, is a special agent with the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation.
