The NCAA Men’s College World Series begins Thursday in Omaha with opening ceremonies.
It's the second CWS at T-D Ameritrade Park, and the 62nd Series in Omaha. South Carolina won the College World Series in 2010 and 2011. The eight CWS teams have open practices starting at 9:00 a.m. The opening ceremony is at 8:30 p.m. and features members of the U.S. Army Golden Knights Parachute Team.
The first three College World Series were held in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Wichita, Kansas. The first CWS in Omaha was in 1950.
The city of Omaha could soon grow by 6,353 residents.
An open house Wednesday in Omaha gives residents in eight Sanitary Improvement Districts to be annexed a chance to ask questions and find out what services might change. The SIDs are Lakeview Heights, Pepperwood, The Colonies, Seven Pines, Walnut Lake, Standing Bear, Hillsborough Plaza, and Pegasus.
A State Senator from Omaha wants to be the city’s next Mayor.
Senator Brad Ashford says he’ll make an official announcement after Labor Day. Ashford was first elected to the Nebraska Legislature in 1986 and re-elected in 1990. He ran for Legislature again in 2006 and has represented District 20 since then.
