What’s Poppin’ Jimbo?

Peter Quinn, Opinion Editor

May 15, 2017

The name “Jimbo’s Diner” sounds like one of those good ol', local places you go to grab a burger on a Friday night, which is exactly what we did. Instead of having that nostalgic diner feel, it was more of a  location that reeked of cigarettes with people playing Keno at 7:00 p.m.   Jack...

May 8, 2017

With Starbucks and Scooters sitting on every block serving up coffee that may as well be brewed with mop water for 6 bucks a cup, it is easy to leave flavor and health in the dust and down bottles of NOS in the morning instead of America’s breakfast staple. Lucky for us, we don’t have to. Omaha i...

This Documentary Will Convince You Slavery Still Exists

Lily Yates, Quintessence Copy Editor

May 8, 2017

The screen blinks on, and you're faced with a tattered black-and-white image of the American flag. But suddenly, you realize, it's not the flag at all. Those stripes are the stripes of a prison inmate. Netflix’s late 2016 premiere of the social documentary "The 13th" began a rampant stream of success,...

Sertino’s Cafe: Appealing to All

Allison Heithoff, Editor-in-Chief of Quintessence

April 24, 2017

I was driving on Maple Street when I happened to look around while stopped at a red light and notice what appeared to be a newly opened cafe tucked away from the street.

Upon entering the beloved pizza joint known as Piezon’s Pizzeria, one may notice the layout of sports magazines, dry-erase drawings on the wall, and the scent of pizza in the making.

“The Skin of Our Teeth,” Explained

Hope Stratman, Copy Editor

April 3, 2017

The weekend of March 30-April 2 at Skutt Catholic, a couple celebrated their 5,000 wedding anniversary, a mammoth and a dinosaur ran rampant in a suburban backyard, and a young man from somewhere like New Jersey murdered his brother with a slingshot. In other words, the spring play was an interesting...

March 27, 2017

Whilst you are minding your own business, attempting to get an ice cream cone, a little girl no older than six runs up to you and screams, “Someone threw up! Someone threw up everywhere!” This seems like something out of a movie, or even a comedy act. However, this actually happened to me at what I ...
