Missouri River flooding catches small Nebraska town off guard

When Jim and Rose Downing heard forecasts last week for dangerously high water in their Nebraska hometown on the Missouri River, they were nonplussed since their house had not flooded in 100 years. Rose is the third generation of her family to reside in the brick home in the Gunnysack Flats neighborhood near downtown Peru, Nebraska, and 2 miles west of a levee that townspeople said never faltered in the past. This time was different, as the fewer than 1,000 residents of Peru discovered on Satu...

Alexander: You may want to consider UC Irvine when making out your bracket

The world according to Jim: • We are all … Anteaters? From the desert to the sea, from the Tehachapis to the Mexican border, there is one men’s NCAA Tournament team for all of Southern California. It’s UC Irvine, and it might hang around for a bit. The Anteaters, who swept through the Big West and take a 30-4 record to the Dance, have size (as always), experience and stubbornness on defense. They’ve received a fairly favorable draw – by Big West standards, anyway – a No. 13 seed and a first game...

The best restaurants in Miami

There was a time when there was no such thing as traveling to Miami just for good food. Restaurants were either flashy, expensive, and about as appealing as a corner table, or they were locals-only, hole-in-the-walls. Oh how things have changed over the last 10 years. Today, Miami is very much a food city. It’s attracted chefs from around the world, and restaurants are blending influences from the Magic City’s diverse population. You can easily find Thai tapas, Nikkei cuisine, and guava every...

Heisler: Clippers riding stability, chemistry back to playoffs, while Lakers appear fractured

Now for that local rivalry we’ve always talked about! Oops. For a moment, it looked like we would finally see the Lakers and Clippers face off for something both cared about – a playoff slot. Instead, last week’s “must-win” meeting turned into a routine Clipper victory, all but eliminating the Lakers, who now say they’ll “monitor” LeBron James’ minutes. Talk about a funny thing happening on their way back to greatness … as the Lakers really might be … except no one there is laughing. It’s more l...

How America’s food giants swallowed the family farms

Across the midwest, the rise of factory farming is destroying rural communities. And the massive corporations behind this devastation are now eyeing a post-Brexit UK marketWhen the vast expanse of rural Iowa was carved up for settlers in the 19th century, it was often divided into 160-acre lots. Four farms made a square mile, with a crisscross of dead-straight roads marking the boundaries like a sprawling chess board.Within each square, generations of families tended pigs and cattle, grew oats a...

5 Reasons to Use Text to Communicate with Clients and Customers

“I love getting calls!” said no one ever. The telemarketing epidemic in the U.S. has killed any prospect of people picking up a phone call if they do not know who is calling them. According to statistics from Robokiller, robocalls accounted for 5.42 billion calls made in February 2019, a new record. This equates to 21 calls per person. As a result most small businesses struggle to connect with their customers because no one picks up their phone. You call people and they don’t pick up. You leave...

Theater review: At A Noise Within, ‘The Glass Menagerie’ is shattering

If you had a perfectly happy childhood with ideal parents, good for you. Tennessee Williams did not, and this led to some of literature’s most-affecting, most-enduring plays. Many in his audiences didn’t, either, and that’s why we keep coming back to his classics, particularly “The Glass Menagerie.” Indeed, its title refers to a collection of tiny toy animals on display but perhaps also to the glassiest of menageries: our families. Kasey Mahaffy and Erika Soto appear in “The Glass Menagerie....

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says James Cameron Was Hands-On in Making ‘Terminator 6’

When it comes to the Terminator films after Terminator 2: Judgement Day, James Cameron‘s involvement is nominal. He gets a credit, cashes a check, and plans some more Avatar films. But that’s not the case with Terminator 6, AKA Terminator: Dark Fate. According to the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Cameron worked closely with director Tim Miller to get the film made. Could that mean the old Terminator magic is back? It’s hard to get overly excited about Terminator: Dark Fate, beca...

Ed Bickert (1932-2019)

Ed Bickert, a Canadian jazz guitarist whose highly tasteful chord voicings and juicy sense of harmony made him a first-choice gig and recording sideman and leader in Toronto, and who today is considered one of jazz's finest guitar accompanists, died on February 28. He was 86. Bickert was a favorite of guitarist Jim Hall and was most likely introduced to him by Canadian bassist Don Thompson, who worked with Jim since 1974. In the 1980s, when Jane Hall, Jim's wife, wanted to record an album of h...
