Big Trouble at Gateway

September 3, 2008 at 1:38pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Yikes, Gateway Mall sure is in trouble now that Steve & Barry’s is closing. The mall has already seen several tenants pack up and move away, and now a relatively popular anchor tenant is pulling up stakes. It’s a bit of a shame. Westfield has really been sprucing up Gateway since it bought the mall several years back.

What sort of anchor tenant do you think would be a good fit to replace Steve and Barry’s? What changes would you like to see Gateway make to help business pick up again?

Governor Heineman Sits Out

September 2, 2008 at 1:20pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Is Governor Heineman chicken for refusing to take a stand on the Affirmative Action ban that will appear on November’s ballot? Chicken or not, is his silence wise?

I’m really surprised that ban opponents—not to mention the state Democratic party—haven’t made a bigger deal out of Heineman’s hush hush attitude. It seems like a missed opportunity to get in a few easy jabs. Maybe everybody is too distracted by the national party conventions right now.

An Above Average Summer? Could’ve Fooled Me

September 2, 2008 at 1:05pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

I don’t know about you, but I was pretty surprised to read that Lincoln’s summer weather was just a hair above average this year. I would have guessed temps were below average overall. As the article notes, I probably think that because there weren’t many “blazin’ hot” days, and more importantly, there really weren’t any extended series of really hot days. The weekend of the Cornhusker State Games was probably the longest stretch of unpleasant hot weather we saw, and that stretch only lasted a few days.

I wonder if perhaps lower average relative humidity levels could have also contributed to the feeling that the summer was cooler. Does anybody know if those averages are tracked, and where they can be found?
