A forum Wednesday in Papillion focuses on the health care needs of veterans.
The veterans’ focus group is one of 25 such meetings the American Legion’s System Worth Saving Task Force is holding throughout the U.S. At each location, they’re talking with veterans about the quality of health care they’re receiving, and if it meets their needs.
After hearing more than three hours of testimony last week on an anti-discrimination ordinance, the Omaha City Council is set to vote on it Tuesday afternoon.
City Councilman Ben Gray introduced the ordinance. It bans discrimination against gay, lesbian, transgender, and bisexual individuals in the workplace and all public places. Religious institutions, and organizations run all or in part by religious organizations, are exempt from the ordinance.
