WOWT 6 News: UPDATE: Recognize these 2? They were the ones who robbed the Security National Bank branch near 78th & Cass this morning. Call 402-444-STOP with tips. Read more here: wowt.com/a?a=280309602Comments:
brandon wilson - It's always the Hawkeye fans...
mike grabow - The Iowa hoodie is a chick
wilson metz - Hope they didn't have guns cause banks are a gun free zone and they would be breaking the law!
katie chamberlain tworek - They are Hawkeye fans? No one will claim to know them....
anna neeson - Bank should have trapdoor to drop them in a hole for cops to catch them
rodney grap - Think it's Nebraska fans trying to throw off the police.
eric miles - My question is...why do banks not have higher end and better quality security cameras. It boggles my mind. Especially ones in the hood
sarah minor - Pretty sure the one with glasses is a female. The cops came into my store looking for a woman and had pictures of her on a security camera, said she was also driving a maroon vehicle with no plates that was stolen. Her skin tone looks very similar to this persons. Just my opinion though.
alice lucille thompson - At least he is practicing proper gun safety and keeping his finger off the trigger
sherry harvill - those red glasses though!
megan daugherty-nelson - Yeah that car doesn't even look like ours. We got pulled over today because the state trooper said our car looked like that!
samantha graeve - How do they get in? I bank there often and have to wait for someone to push a button to allow me inside.
tara marie - Defiantly a girl...
denise dutton burns - I agree, the one in the hoodie with the red glasses looks to be female.
natalie hudnall - That one in the IA shirt and red glasses looks like a girl. It said two men robbed the bank.
michael roberts - I would guess they are wearing Hawkeye gear to try and throw people off but then again maybe they aren't that smart
dan duffy - My brother and his wife. Where is the reward?
jeffrey houghton - I have an alibie.
eric pettis - Probably the two girls that stole that cat...
tim sproat - Yeah I recognize them they are like Any of the thousands that walk the streets every day, pick your city
dee gibbs bennett - When are our small banks going to stop this with some armed guards? I wouldn't go into any of our banks these days.

WOWT 6 News: GREAT NEWS: Kaitlyn has been found. Her friend Kaylee was found earlier this week. Kaitlyn's family tells us she is safe. http://www.wowt.com/home/headlines/Mother-Searches-Downtown-for-Missing-Teen-279838552.htmlComments:
tisha moore - 1 in 3 runaway youth are approached for commercial sex within 48 hours of being on the street. It's called sex trafficking and the Omaha/Council Bluffs area is a hub due to the I-80 corridor. So, in my opinion we do need to look for these kids, regardless of the circumstances.
lisa reseter - Wow... so many people calling them brats. Do any of you remember being teens? Just be thankful this young girl is home, regardless if she ran away or was kidnapped. Could you people be any ruder.
matt toma - How long until they run away again?
barb regalbuto miller - These girls should be ordered to pay restitution to the city for all the resources used in their search. Why on earth were they allowed to wonder the old market alone anyway. I would NEVER drop my 14 year old off down there. It's all bars.
stephanie sousa - I'm so glad a couple people said what we were all thinking! They were runaways they were not kidnapped! Such a waste of public resources! Properly parent and discipline your bratty kids and don't beg the whole city to babysit them.
nick hung - she did not need to be found, she had contact with people after she ran away, she just needed to return, she was seen and contacted all over omaha , you act like this was an abduction instead of a runaway
colleen anson - Glad they are safe. However how the girl whose mother was canvassing the old market in a state of anxiety, confusion and sheer fear for her child can live with herself I'll never know. She should be made to watch the video of her poor mother over and over until she gets it.
lois hubbard colvin - Kaitlin Lee Traxler is my niece so I know first hand how she is. Unfortunate, but true, she needs some serious help... and discipline! So for those defending her, don't think this has been a learning experience for her. And... Kaitlin, if you are reading this, SHAME ON YOU! Too bad you have no conscience. You put your Grandmother through hell..
becky sharpe pulver - DO NOT blame the parents! These kids today and even 50 yrs ago are going do stupid stuff! Some more stupid than others. Parents CAN Not WATCH THERE KIDS 24/7! Trust me, my husband and I tried and still failed! I'm glad they are safe!
barb regalbuto miller - It comes down to these girls having no respect for thier parents. Bottom line. We live in a culture that wants to make excuses for bad behavior. What these girls did was wrong plain and simple. Now they need to be punished for thier actions.
steven lee putman - At least they didnt join isis
jessica tierney gardeman - Lots of "do a better job of parenting". From experience, its not always in the parenting; most times it's about the kid/kids just doing stupid stuff and not thinking of the consequences until its to late. No kid is perfect, and will at some point in their lives do something stupid.
stephanie sousa - Solid info Tisha Moore, perhaps all runaways should get hauled into the station to watch a video about sex trafficking. Scare them a little so they realize how serious running away is. Maybe then they'll keep their butts home instead of running off and partying with guys who are 7 years older than them. While at least one frantic mother searched day and night. Let's all just stop making excuses for kids to behave poorly. The reason generations before this had respect for their parents? Probably because their parents actually parented.
amy lukert betzen - Everyone is so quick to be judgmental. Until you have walked a mile in their shoes (parents/girls). Don't put them down. Thank god that they are alive and safe.
haley carman - Most of you commenting are truly disgusting. A missing child is still a missing child, runaway or not. Also, every child or teenager can be helped!! It's a matter of how much effort you're willing to put into helping them.
cindy keene - Just another case of bratty kids not getting proper discipline and acting out for what I can imagine is some stupid reason. Let's cover actual missing people and if punks wanna run away let them then find out just how tough it is without your parents bailing u out!
angi zimmerman - Gloria Vallecillo u r so right and u and I and Stacy Linn all grew up together and this girl is no different. She defiantly didn't tell her parents everything. All parents think they know wat goes on in all they're kids lives but they r wrong. All they can pray for is that wat they taught them will sink into their heads. I know my kids only tell me 86% of wat they r sharing. From there parents have to try and put all the missing pieces in place. I'm glad she was found but I also think that if she thinks she's grown enuff to run then ur old enuff to face the consequences!!!
hilary beckner - Tisha Moore before you start trying to give facts or opinions you should probably think about your own problems!!!!! And for the rest of you with all your negative comments about these girls I hate to break it to all off you, just because this is the way they felt was the way to reach out does not make them bad kids!!!! And for ones that have left any negative comment that do t have kids we will all pray for you because you really have no clue!!!!! JS 😄 Staci Lynn
laura marie - At that age I wasn't allowed to go to the old market/downtown. I did with a bigger group of people for prom, but guess I was respectful towards my family.
amy perkins mefford - Get them the help that they are crying out for, there has to be something they feel the need to run away.
mary nicholson - They both need there butts spanked for putting there family through this. Shame in them. Maybe community service should be in there future

WOWT 6 News: BREAKING: A window was shot out of a school bus today near 24th & Pinkney, according to scanner reports. There were kids on the bus at the time. Thankfully, none of them were injured. Read More Here: http://www.wowt.com/home/headlines/Omaha-School-Bus-Window-Hit-By--280232112.htmlComments:
kathy harvey - Lovely now the animals are shooting up school buses. I still say stick em all on an island and let them make themselves extinct
ash swoboda - I hope parents were called before seeing this on Facebook....
bob aiello - What has happened to our world. Somebody knows who did this. Step up.
joel leighner - lost for words! glad everyone is OK, and they catch the POS!
joe carter - Go get yourself a concealed carry permit folks. The crime won't get better, and the cops can't be everywhere. If they're willing to do this, what are they willing to do to you when they break into your house?
justin moore - Ya dont want to put these morons away, they may get overcrowded in prison. This nation is turning in to a bunch of pansies with how we treat our violent criminals. Our justice system should be ashamed of themselves. But I am sure whoever did this is a really good person who just made some bad choices but was just getting their life back together.
colt william - Roll out the national guard, put them on our street corners and see how many shootings and bank robberies occur
tina anderson larocque - Wtf is wrong with people.
jeff coffman - Disturbing, to say the least.
risa bledsoe - Horrible people.
janelle baideme - I decided to put my post into more clear terms. I think police should do something to get illegal non permit guns & whatnot off the streets & make more presence in those areas to help end all this violence nonsense from nobody's trying to be somebody's & have more of a chance to catch them. It sucks that so many & too many low lives get away with things like this. Too many free bullets whether shot at or shot out, same thing.. flying from the guilty & cowardly people out there. Where's the justice? But yet this Deandre Critten who is awaiting trial who threatened a life of a police officer with a gun pointed which of course caused the officer to use force, who spent 13 days in the hospital is getting US the Omaha tax payers to pay his medical bill over $103,000 Dollars. It is like he was awarded for what he did which is complete nonsense. The city council was stupid to approve this, he should have been just been out of luck & pay his own way for what he did instead of getting a free ride.
jefferey walker - Its nothing new for omaha. All u hear about is shooting in the O town.
justin swinarski - What do ya know in the hood again
jill skradski novotny - How about the citizen friends of Omaha go through The Purge?
mike mikulicz - We need more law abiding citizens with concealed carry permits so we can stop these thugs from doing this crap
billee herzberg - No no!! This is not correct!! Bus was shot with BB gun leaving North High. No one was hurt!' Just because you hear it on scanners doesn't make it true!' Find out facts before you scare ppl!!
patty darrow - How low can people go? Why do people want to harm, ever think of others? Get religion in your lives,ask God for his forgiveness,try becoming a better person, maybe you could find someone to mentor, enough is enough with crime... May God be with you.
kristin abbink - Parents were likely not notified before it was on FB and TV, they post and go on air with stuff as soon as they hear it on a scanner. Sometimes even before law enforcement can arrive. Causing chaos and hysteria in some cases
jacki maynard - Glad no kids were hurt. If I was a parent of a child on that bus, I'd be freaking out! Thank God the kids were unharmed.
rosie carmona - Omg and my son walks to his bus stop
dave layer - Drop a bomb on that hood.
- A Treynor, Iowa woman is raising questions about a trip to Africa planned by one of her daughte (Type: photo | Published: 2014-10-24T01:36:20+0000)
WOWT 6 News: A Treynor, Iowa woman is raising questions about a trip to Africa planned by one of her daughter's classmates. Read more here: wowt.com/a?a=280254462Comments:
eric oliver - I will be happy to buy her an atlas and point out how far away Uganda is from the countries with Ebola outbreaks.
jake davis - Public school has failed her, and her geography skills are poor. White panic from small towns!!!!!!
nikki johnson grimes - This is how big Africa is in comparison to other parts of the world. People just hear "Africa" and their mind goes blank. This would be like having an outbreak in Costa Rica and freaking out because someone traveled to LA.
christina boje - Um, Uganda and Liberia are 3000 miles apart. Head meet desk.
john augustine - Why give this nut job a voice?
laura marie - I wouldn't go. My missions trip in high school was almost canceled due to a shooting where we were headed. Better safe than sorry to cancel a trip.
nicholas hensley - You may want to dawn a gas mask I just farted.
ryan batt - This woman needs a life.
amy deriso - The article does say that the area the teen and her mom are going to is close to Congo which is seeing a different strain of Ebola. It is smart for this other mother to be concerned for the health and safety of her own child and the community when the teen returns from the mission trip. Although, it would make more sense for people not to go where they are having outbreaks.
scott dillon - Another soccer mom with nothing between her ears, spouting off about which she knows nothing about. She is patient 0 when it comes to spreading mass hysteria.
lisa myer roane - It is 2900 miles from Uganda to Liberia where there is Ebola. She might want to check how far Treynor is from Omaha or Dallas or Atlanta!
glenn lewis - I think the worst part about this being aired is that other people that will watch this also don't own maps and will just be fear stricken.
sheri holub - Concerns are legit. Anyone wondering why Ebola patients are treated differently than Aids patients? Because of the unknowns. Vaccine, treatment, transmission, extent of survival out of the host...CDC changes recommendations every day. US is far from Africa and Ebola has spread from less than a handful of known infected with the highest precautions in place. Yes, we all continue with our lives but we shouldn't just go blindly. That's why we have opinions and free speech to ask questions.
jude hayes - Hell yah be concerned
angiee mcnelly gunderson - NOOO WAY!! Voluntarily put yourself anywhere near harms way? NO!!
stephen gillespie - And this is news how?.........
michael strauch - Get a life. It isn't your concern, it is the traveler's family's concern.
ebony marie - Yea, um considering they are checking everyone immediately upon entry to the United States I don't think this estupido mother has anything to worry about. Right now she is simply showing how ignorant she is and just is an attention seeker. Look it up lady!!! Here's the website: www.cdc.gov
scott dillon - Yes, Mike Leach we get it. Uganda has one death from Ebola. So does the USA. It is also a different strain and a less virulent one as well. Maybe you should move to Iowa and be another chicken little with the ding bat.
heather k. myers - This is dumb. Uganda is nowhere near the affected countries, and hasn't had an outbreak.
matt peters - Please die in a fire.

WOWT 6 News: MISSING CAT: A South Omaha business owner has surveillance video of two young women taking his cat from right in front of his shop. Please SHARE to help bring "Miss Kitty" home.Comments:
megan l karls - Outside in front of his store... the young girls probably didn't know the cat belonged to the store owner.
jessica merkley pastor - Miss kitty is a good cat and friendly..always will greet you when you go into the store...she needs to be found....those women are thieves just like any other person who steals things
jed dean - probably thought it was a stray, keep them inside or on a leash just like dogs
terra henggeler - What's with all the douch bag comments? Where I come from pets are family!
misty scrivner - They're going to eat it! Lol
patti stahmer vanseveren - Bring Ms. Kitty back to her family! Not yours to take. If you want one go to the Humane Society, they have plenty of them that need homes!
sarah e. komor mcdowell - It belongs to Ralph owner of Odd Lot. Give it back. Hes good person and doesn't deserve to have Miss Kitty taken. Ralph does nothing but help people.
jen schizencephalyawareness hulett - This just blows my mind! A cat story!? Please tell me this isn't airing at 10 news there are way more important things we need to know then a missing cat in front of a store not a home a store they may thought is was a stray seriously wowt
gayle martinez - The owner has every right to keep the cat at the store. It is his business. I've seen cats inside shops in the Old Market, maybe they should be cited for animal neglect too. Hope the cat is returned.
amie farrell - Worthless!!! I've caught kids trying to take my cat on their way home from school I've had to yell at them to put my miss Kitty down! Parents need to teach their kids not to take What's not theirs!!! Hope this Kitty is found
em leahy - Is this a real story?
miko koricic - Isn't the nhs giving cats away buy 2 get 3 free? Why any idiot would steal a cat when so many are looking for homes is beyond me!?!
brent mckinney - Just yesterday a group of teenagers outside my house were commenting on how my cat looked like a squirrel and how they were going to catch him and kill him. They didn't realize I overheard them and a Bellevue police officer paid them a visit. Now I am afraid to let my cat outside.
danny torchia - There's a comic store owner here in council bluffs who has a sign next to his leashed cat with its doorless kennel outside. Seems like some clues to indicate it isn't a stray might help. Not saying the guy is even blaming them. But it could've been prevented.
jami ham - The owners are wonderful this is an outrage! SOMEONE KNOWS! !!! PLEASE TELL! Animals are family members and these are kind people the store owners
christina raber - This is sad! Stupid kids!
marlenne herrera ortiz - Cecily Savala give him back his cat!!
jason enghauser - Not everyone is purr-fect
tina rickards - Hope they bring cat back to owner
pam butcher - What kind of creeps are these???
marlon marroquin - I wonder if I loose my PitBulls channel 6 might come to my place and help me find them 😂

michael tyree - I did time with him back in 2000...I see some never change.
owen scott swaink - He looks pretty cocky
staci greving beyer - And he looks like a psychopath...no remorse for what he did. And unfortunately our justice system sucks, so I'm sure he'll get away with it.
winnie sue brown-maher - He will be out in a day or 2.. Smh!
rose vera - He's happy, cuz he got a free ride. No need to pay rent, bills, baby mamas. Meanwhile we're out here working two jobs, to keep these thugs clothed and fed. SMDH!!!

theresa menard - Congratulations, good luck in the future. Don't be going back over to Liberia.
carol foggo-klos - Wow, congrats to you for beating Ebola...ignore the ignorant haters on here...most of Nebraska is filled with better. God Speed!
shelley juma floro - Omaha is so blessed to have UNMC. Good luck!!
carrie smith - Wonderful news for him! I hope and pray that the people in Liberia can have the same care...or even a fraction of it to end their suffering!
rosalie bonney - What a hateful person. I won't say any names because anyone that reads these comments can figure out who I'm talking about... You should be ashamed of yourself.
josh karas - good luck on the dating scene bro
todd riner - Stop going to Africa! !!!
kimberly harwan - Has anyone said "he got cured because he's white" yet?
derreck kinney - Just wait it'll be airborne soon dumb f××ks

jeff harder - Omaha, where Ebola comes to die
minnie dominican twin - Hey now !!!! Glad he's up and we'll but omaha let's not bring any more Ebola patients here please and thank you !!!
caleb carolus - Don't get me wrong, I support the guy, I just wish they would have kept him a little longer for fear of it becoming inactive...
geraldine williams hood - I'm certainly glad for these people who are getting "free" of this terrible virus, but, what happened to "there is no known cure" for Ebola? Another of the many lies we are spoon fed? Or are they actually developing the cures as they go?
joy jensen - UNMC works miracles daily! They helped my cousin Matthew Brophy Sr and saved his life near 9 times.
shelly muckey - He has insurance and his employer paid for his trip back. It was no burden on taxpayers
kleo ghostdancer warner - Lmao why? He went to Africa on his on. He should be thanking us for our tax paying money that help him beat this virus! He isn't nothing special. Why is it that now days people take these jobs as a professional and expect for people to care about there mishaps from on the job incidents? I dislocated my collarbone the other day at work. Can I get some help paying medical bills? Probably not!
charlene potter - Congratulations Great job Medical team.

WOWT 6 News: UPDATE: An alleged intruder who was shot and killed was out on bond, awaiting trial in two separate cases.Comments:
rick mangold - Saving taxpayer dollars. Good job!!
michael moore - He got what he deserved! Glad the community is fighting back to protect their family and property.
bobbi terry - Somebody is going to say "he was such a good guy".
scott ruckman - If an intruder entered with a gun take him out with a gun
morgan lambert - Good, now onto the next, let's keep the trend going!
connie coenen alexander - Now watch, his family will try suing the person who shot him. This world is so upside down.
sarah snyder - A man tried to break into my moms house a few days ago and got a loaded gun and flashlight in his face. He ran but i hope he realizes how he could have been shot between the eyes! Stupid thieves! Lol
patrick roeder - Good guy and helpful kid, yeah helping himself to others belongings. He probably put his hands up too. "I broke into your home but please dont shoot me!" People making excuses for criminals gotta love it.
daniel r sutton - Good riddance. More and more of these stories are popping up around the country in the media. Good evidence of why the second amendment exists.
miranda klausner - Awaiting trial on 2 separate cases and had just got out on bond, ya, he sounds like a good guy. People make mistakes, but he obviously wasn't learning from his.
michael roberts - Wouldn't even had the chance had the justice system done the job right the first time and not let him out on bond....The justice system needs fixed and not just a money revolving door now someone else has to live with the fact they were forced to kill someone or be killed themselves
becky pluth - What the hell did he think would happen when he went into somebody's home with a freaking gun!!! SMMFH
travis mitchell - Law obeying citizens exercising their second amendment, saving tax dollars, and freeing up the courts. Give this guy a drink.
kris mikels - Sorry, no tears for him.one more off the street.
kevin herron - Obviously what he did was wrong by breaking in but Ty was a good guy. I met him 2 years ago at my job and then ran into him at the gym I went to. Always super nice and helpful the last I saw of him was in August after we did abs. Crime is wrong but Ty was a good guy in my book, rest in peace
lindsay boffa holding - Saving Taxes! Woo hoo!
taylor burkum - You break in. You die. It's such a SIMPLE concept.
dan duffy - What do you mean alleged, he broke into the house and was shot I think if he was shot dead in the house he got what he asked for.
michele weibel kennedy - They saved the tax payers a little money !!!
rick domenge - Idiots are here defending him too , it was a mistake! Spilling milk is a mistake , being an armed intruder makes you a POS!
sam chatham - Yeah, this word "alleged". WOWT, I do not think it means what you think it means.

WOWT 6 News: Christmas is still 2+ months away, but we're already getting details about the shopping season from CreditCards.com about where people intend to spend their money. That got us thinking: How soon is TOO SOON to start talking Christmas. Sound off -- your comments may end up on WOWT 6 News Daybreak!Comments:
julie yeshnowski - Any time before black Friday. Please let us celebrate Halloween and Thanksgiving before the C word is part of anyone's vocabulary.
jacqueline miller - My mom starts shopping the day after Christmas for the following year. She is already done shopping.
heather thomas wehling - Thanksgiving seems to be the "forgotten" holiday with Christmas being so commercialized and over advertised so early. After Thanksgiving is when it should be talked about......... like it USED to be! :)
alan leach - Bah Humbug, outlaw christmas.
erika sencenich - I start shopping for Christmas the day after. This year I'm behind usually done by now but I will be done by thanksgiving and everything wrapped shortly there after. Then I sit back and enjoy a stress free holiday season
kim smith - The only time it's acceptable to talk about Christmas, is Christmas Day. Guess which one I am...
shannon yager-jones - I start asking my kid what she may want so I can buy little by little...however we dont decorate until after Thanksgiving
joshua raj rajaee - When they pull Halloween decorations from Home Depot here in LA and stock the halls with Christmas decorations at two weeks before Halloween...They cut Halloween early, skipped Thanksgiving and went straight to Christmas...What is that all about?!
cathy mcdonald - I am due to have our third baby days after Christmas. I am already planning for Christmas. Though, we basically asked family members for gift ideas that can be bought online or ideas for places/ events they would like to attend. No stores for me, if I can help it!
conchita tolles - When the stores sell Christmas stuff in October or before thanksgiving, don't buy it until after. If everyone did that instead of complaining maybe the stores would get the hint.
brandy wegner - 65 days TIL Christmas!!!! ❤️🎅🎄🎁
bobbi chapman - Christmas season should start after Thanksgiving, preferably in December.
dustin mcauliffe - Have they cancelled Halloween and Thanksgiving? Seems like we go straight from swimwear to Christmas now.
julie emert - Just because someone thinks about Christmas early doesn't mean they have forgotten about the other holidays! People have a right to start thinking about it whenever they want to. I love all holidays and no amount of Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving is going to change that. I don't understand why it makes people angry or upset. Some people just like to get things started early so that they aren't having to scramble during the holidays.
meckenzie gleason - I'm starting to shop now, simply because buying for everyone in one month is too much for my budget. I'm thinking I'll be done just in time. However, I do NOT like seeing decorations for sale already...
becky ronkar-hissong - I've started shopping already, but the tree and decorations always go up after Thanksgiving.
ashley myers - They shove Christmas down our throats earlier and earlier every year, like we all forgot what day it is. I think it would be appropriate to start stocking store shelves a week or two before Thanksgiving and keep all the commercials off tv until then as well.
shannon thies cooper - YES! Please wait until after Halloween....at least! :-)
shelly hayden - As a crafter I start thinking about what to make people for Christmas In October as some projects take time. But otherwise not till after Thanksgiving. We do tend to forget thanksgiving . We shouldn't as we should be thankful for God's blessings. And to shop on thanksgiving is so wrong. 🍗
kristina thompson - Heck, yeah.
Making customers vulnerable to credit fraud and identity theft is no small matter.
connie katterjohn - Not yet. Christmas is gonna be depressing this year. I have no money for it.

josh bartek - No tired of hearing about this what allegiance does he have to Nebraska he played for Creighton and he is from Iowa. He can wear what ever he wants
matt oberle - In other news, someone dared to cheer against the huskers. Oh and it's a super slow sports news day.
rachel neill - What does it matter? He's from IOWA, played at CREIGHTON, and now is playing professionally in CHICAGO. What does he owe Nebraska?
andrew seberg - Who cares!? Isn't there something else actually related to a sport in Nebraska? UNO Hockey swept their first conference series last weekend. Why don't you give them some press for once?
connie coenen alexander - Next time I'm going to lend him my game day pin.
casey abler - Why did Ross have to ask him 'to explain himself'??? He can cheer for whoever. The world doesn't revolve around cheering for the Huskers.
dave hudson - He plays in Chicago, so why wouldn't he support Northwestern. And he DID go to Creighton, not Nebraska. Must be a slow news day if this is a big deal.
tater salad - C'mon, get a story !! This is Doug adapting to his new town of Chicago!!
scott theobald - Explain himself... what? He went to CREIGHTON!
emerson cole - Why is this news? He's from Iowa, went to Creighton, and is now an Illinois resident. Stop being an idiot. How about some real news?
brian mann - NEWS FLASH! Not every resident of NE is a Husker fan!!!
jeff harris - He played for CREIGHTON people! He's no way associated with the Huskers. Get over it. Man, Husker fans are stupid........
mindi richardson - Why does he have to like nebraska? He played for Creighton. He can like who he wants!!!!
victoria jolene - Anyone can be a fan of whatever team they'd like.
kyle tobin miller - Did he go to Nebraska? Didn't think so.
linda stessman schmitz - Why does he have to explain himself? Just because he went to Creighton University, which so happens to be in Omaha, Nebraska, does not mean he has to cheer for the Huskers!!!! This is ridiculous to make it headline news! Seriously!!!!!!
galen donovan - Only dweebs get offended by this kind of thing. McBuckets and DoubleGfor3 for life!!
robert kniewel - He played basketball at Creighton not at Nebraska so I dont care who he was supporting
derek stephens - He didn't go to Nebraska, he went to Creighton. He lives in Chicago now. Who cares.
shanon stamp knight - Last I checked he never played for UNL, he played for a team who beat UNL in a game or 2. Why would anyone think he should be a Husker fan?
chuck herring - Huskers=Lincoln. Creighton=Omaha. Evanston is in Chicago, same city as the Bulls. Am I wrong to think Doug McDermott might live in the Chicago area now and not in Nebraska?

WOWT 6 News: MISSING: 14-year-old Kaylee and her friend are still missing. Kaylee's mother is frantic. She was in the Old Market all day passing out flyers. http://www.wowt.com/home/headlines/Mother-Searches-Downtown-for-Missing-Teen-279838552.htmlComments:
lori crosby - Why is the photo showing John Chapman instead of the girls?
tyna assa - How does anyone know if they were taken, coerced, or ran away? No matter what they are minors and are MISSING. Let's find these girls and if they took off then let the concerned mother handle that.
tracy thompson - Is the other girl's mother worried or concerned about her own child..
heather mcpherson keeran - Amber alerts are for all missing children... As a mother that went through this I know your heartache .. stay hopefull .. I hope her and her friend come home safe
lisa malone - The other girls step dad said they aren't looking because the police have more resources than those of us out searching nd passing out flyers....WE are out there passing out flyers that have pictures of BOTH girls on them. We want them BOTH home safe!
jessica rangel - Oh my heart aches for that mom!! Please if anyone knows please say something n hope shes found safe
xane olson - This same mother youre all worried about showed up at our house beligerently drunk LAST night. After her stupid Daughter lied to Kaitlins mom about taking them to the old market. Staci kicked her car and tried to cause a fight.
julia woods - The other girls name is Kaitlyn Traxler and her family is searching as well.
melissa watson - Yes an amber alert is only issued if you have an abductor description and vehicle info. This is really scary I hope they are found alive.
cindy keene - We as parents never truly know our kid's so I hope she didn't take off for some reason. Either way I hope she's found safe.
jeff benson - Wheres the amber alert. Isn't this what a amber alert is for , hours matter now it's turning to days ???
jen evans snow - Why no Amber alert???? Can you tell what schools they were from? Any more info would help
brittany lincoln - Is it just kaylees mom trying to find them cause if so it shouldn't just be her it should be the other girls mom too and hope she gets home safe does she know anyone over here in Omaha
melissa bradley - Xane why must you run ur mouth when kaylees mom has been up day and night looking for her. They have found Kaylee but I guess friend ran.
charlie volcek - Can't they call their cell phones and or track their phone activity? Young girls love their phones...
sheri mundy - Malorie Maddox is the other girls parents not worried about there daughter? Not much has been said about her.
angela buckley - You know what terrifies me? Anyone hear about the serial killer dumping bodies. ...like 7 women now. There's no missing women around the area hes dumping them but there's missing women between here n Indiana where he's dumping them. Just pray they are ok.
cara james - One girl is back home safe....sounds to me like there's family issues stemming for poor parenting
emily mcguire - It just says kaylee and her friend, as in the other girl doesn't matter or have a name. Why?
wendi winger-condon - Oh my gosh, I hope this girl comes home soon...her mother is going thru hell
kristi hadden - They have been missing since Saturday

WOWT 6 News: FOUND! Kaylee (on the right) has been found safe. Her mother says she is back home tonight. No update on her missing friend Caitlin.Comments:
brian smith - Safe at home and possibly grounded until she is 37.
caroline hartung vernon - Here's an idea......Boys Town!!!!!
christina white dizona - If only kids understood that running away takes away from finding real lost children.
elaine wilkinson - There really should be some legal repercussions - this happens SO MUCH that it makes people not pay attention when a kid actually is abducted.
emily burr - Where were all of you when they first went missing. And this was all over the media. It's not the media nor the police that should be contacting you, it is YOU that should be contacting THEM and making a scene to find this poor girl. Just like the other mom did. Hats off to her, stood up, made it known, and most importantly found her daughter.
julie emert - I am happy she is home safe. Hopefully if she was gone on her own free will, there will be consequences.
sallyand ian jevons - I pray Caitlin will be found safe too.
emily burr - I can see that you're here now, commenting on a post that the other child was found safe as the other ran off. We were all here sharing the photos, watching out everywhere we went, and listened to the mother say how she had zero help or information from the other child's family. If you were out along side of her looking you would have already found her! Get up, get out there, and find this girl too! We will all keep a look out, especially since it is another poor child. Quit blaming everyone else and go find her!
emily burr - If my kid hadn't come home in 2-3 days, I'd be out there day and night looking, just like the other mom. Look at the awareness she got and I'm sure helped her find her daughter. Where are the other parents at on this?
lisa auten - Xane...it says the other is still missing. Who cares how you spell her name. Quit harping on the news station who has been trying to help from the beginning. This sounds like a case of two teenagers running away...guess maybe attention needs to be diverted to the children who were abducted. Maybe these kids should have to answer to the juvenile court...
shellie rhoden - Let's be thankful she is found safe and sound and leave the rest to the parent(s). No need for nasty comments and parental advice here.
missy carlson - Xane instead talking bad about the news station get off the Internet contact the mother of the girl found to see where she was located and get there as fast as you to see if she is still in the area. The parents of these girls should have stuck together from the beginning looking for them then they wouldn't have to be waiting for someone else to update them on their child.
yvonne julio gomez - A girl is missing and people are more worry about spelling.
xane olson - There is still another girl missing! Her name is Kaitlin traxler! Fix your bad reporting!
megan l karls - ^^^ calm down, they said the other one was still missing... the spelling of her name isn't important, the fact that she hasn't been found is though... they can only report what they know.
danny n chelle - My daughter.....18 years old with no connections to the girls spent her day in old market handing out flyers and helping to find BOTH girls ....Xane....As her uncle were you at work as well as your sister today ? And not out looking ? Thanks to the help of my child and many others your family was LET KNOW whom she was seen with what the make and model of the vehicle is and the area she ran off with this 22 year old boy was ... my daughter also let your friends/family know that there planning on fleeing to Colorado ... The fact that you are on here being so negative to the other girls family is ridiculous ...shame on you ...and as I stated on previous sites shame on her mother for going to work and not joining forces with caylees mom and family to find the girls had she chose to go look or even you instead of working she would've gotten her daughter tonight ...my child gave this information over a hour ago ...WHY IN GOD'S GREEN EARTH ARE YOU STILL ON HERE AND NOT OUT LOOKING !!! furthermore no one chased her away !!! They wanted them both safe she ran with this man....
amanda kreifels - The other girls name is Kaitlin! She is still missing and her mother is worried sick! Please keep sharing and looking! Her name is Kaitlin Traxlen! She needs to be found too! The family of Kaylee saw her and let her go! She needs someone to pray, care and stop trying to figure out who's right and just find her!
melissa bradley - Your getting all mad xane because Kaitlin ran and Kaylee didn't. That's not kaylees moms fault and who are you to judge her
missy carlson - Amanda I have been following this since before the news posted anything. I'm a mother of a 16 ur old girl. I was a teenager at one time also. I've been following closely for those reasons. I don't know either family personally but I have checked each Facebook profile repeatedly to update myself so while I'm out running errands or going to and from work I can keep my eye out. So actually none of the information I had gotten was from the news. It was from the frantic mothers Facebook pages.
amanda kreifels - Kaitlin is still missing! Please, please keep sharing her photo and looking for her! Her name is Kaitlin Traxlen! She needs to be found! She's 15 and a CHILD!!!! The police are not helping the parents! No one is!!! She is a CHILD! Since when has it been okay to let a 15 year old who was reported missing first go when over 20 people were there to see her! Help her please!!!!
kayla graves - Glad she is safe, hope Caitlin is as well.

WOWT 6 News: Armed intruder shot to death in Bellevue identified as 21-year-old Tyrell Dalia of Omaha wowt.com/a?a=279702152Comments:
leanne meckna - I love that people are defending their family and property. Crime will ultimately go down if everyone follows suit.
kathy harvey - I'm glad more people are protecting themselves , their families, and their homes. Maybe someday these losers will take a hint. I double dog dare em to come to my home lol.
jessica merkley pastor - Want to bring your crime to Bellevue? Well welcome to Bellevue, most of us are legally armed
melissa k erickson hojnacke - I am sure he was "turning his life around".... glad he can't hurt anyone again!
lindsey leblanc - Thank you for saving tax payers money.
duvon dushaun perkins - I get what he did was wrong I myself would shoot to kill but he was part of someone's family, they will miss him and that is their God given gift to do so. That being said its rude to demean them for that. Good or bad family is family. If your family member was gunned down today for doing the wrong that doesn't mean you stop loving them tomorrow.
hannah mueller - I'm absolutely disgusted at the way people act. Yes he was in the wrong yes he had made mistakes and yes he should NOT have been breaking into this persons home. But that fact of the matter is people are being so cruel when a kid my own age from my highschool DIED last night. Show a little respect and try to imagine how you would feel if your son or nephew were in this position. I hope all you "adults" feel absolutely ashamed of yourselves for the lack of tact you've shown.
angela marchant - When are they going to realize you can't break into people's houses??? They are NOT going to like what happens next..
del hazelip - Hats off to the homeowner, they'd get the same at my place.
beverly decarlo hazuka - Bang bang 🔫🔫
kimberly a shady - Don't break into other people's houses!
cassie bell - This was just a few months ago about him..
john farrington - Just a pic to reduce the tension here....
sarah marie fredrickson - In life every decision you make has consequences. Those consequences can be good, bad, or indifferent. Unfortunately when you choose to live a lifestyle full of crime one of those risks is prison or death. It is sad this person couldn't have made better choices, I am sure his family wishes so too. The person who had to shoot him I am sure would have wanted a different outcome but when someones choices puts your own life at risk you fight back and you have every right too. Hopefully out of this entire thing it helps deter others from thinking they can break into someones home- I am sure it won't but that's why there's firearms for protection and to be used in situations as such.
emanuel ortiz - He broke in and was armed. What happened next was a textbook definition of what needed to happen. Armed man breaks in, home owner defends himself. Hopefully the other criminals use this as an example of why they shouldn't break in to people's homes.
brian chase - We all assume the worst. We don't know the circumstances of the persons life. We don't know for certain his passing. You all are sheep who feed into the main stream media for your first hand judgment call on a person who's died and you pass judgment and criticize their life by how they left this world. Grow up and regain your humanity. A young man died last night. Mourn his death, that is the tradgedy.
jerome jackson - Rip...even though u made a bad decision u are still human. Apparently most of the ppl leaving comments never made a mistake in their lives were they can condemn those that do.
kristopher warren - Kinda stupid breaking and entering in Bellevue. Lots of active and retired military. I hope the legal system doesn't harass the home owner on this one.
sean conaway - But he was a good kid. Not
amber smith - Just never know who ur gonna meet when u break in someone's house.....justice served
katie budd - That's what you get

WOWT 6 News: How many times a week do you eat at home with your family? With busy schedules, maybe not as often as we would like, right? But this next week is Omaha Family Dining Week, a time where area families are encouraged to cook and eat at home as a unit. Help us make it easy for families to participate by sharing some of your go-to recipes below. Then tomorrow on Daybreak, WOWT's Jordan Shefte will be discussing the benefits of gathering around the table. #OstartshereComments:
carol willmore - I make dinner for my family of 6 almost every night. It is cheaper for me to fix dinner home than to take everyone out to dinner. Even a fast food value menu can cost us over $25 or $30 to feed everyone. I can make three meals at home with that same amount of money.
jody grancer - Anything can be thrown in a crockpot, let it cook all day while your away, put a liner in and cut out the cleaning time. Pintrest has hundreds if meals for crockpots or make your own combination!
betty klingemann - It's all about planning ahead. Choose your meals for the week, make your grocery list and stick to it. You will be amazed how much money you will save. And you'll eat healthier because YOU control the ingredients! Avoid all processed foods!
carol willmore - Best recipe's come out of my imagination....lol....a pound of hamburger and a pantry work wonders......like tonite I had a pound of hamburger, two cans of tomato sauce, two cans of tomato's two can's of chili beans, a pk of chili mix, or a tablespoon of chili powder works just as well, a tablespoon of sugar and a tablespoon of flour and boom! you have chili for all! I buy groceries once a month and got for a few supplies in the middle of the month.ie: milk, bread etc.......
lynda parks tomsu - Go to allrecipes.com and you will find a wealth of recipes easy ones to very involved with reviews to help guide. I have always cooked over the years and save lots of money plus take pride in fixing my family's foods.
amy malone - Enjoy those meals while kids are young folks...mine are teens now and driving off into the sunset and eat when ever they get home!
I do however make sure I cook early if they have to work. ;)
april udron mather - Crockpot are the best!! I cook every night! It takes planning but it's worth it
sandy eckert - I am proud to say I eat dinner 6 nights a week with my family I truly enjoy that time😍
jessica roberts - Chicken fajitas cook some chicken breast with bag of frozen pepper mix (red yellow and onion) add garlic if you want or any other spice and throw on tortilla shell. Wham bam.
lauren miller - Let's cook dinner one of these nights! Kellie Elizabeth Hamilton Aimee Lynn Kelly Woodworth
stacie dienstbier owen - I love the app Yummly. It's awesome! I just made Sour Cream Noodle Bake tonight and it was a hit!
amy joy carman - boneless skinless chicken breast 1 large can of cream of mushroom soup cover the chicken what your soup over 425 40 mins side of instant rice and green beans
sharon sheldon - You learn a lot about your kids at the dinner table. Priceless!
betty klingemann - I have assembled my own cookbook by printing recipes my family enjoys and putting them in a 3 ring binder.
lou montalvo - I eat dinner every single night with my family. After all, family is the most important thing. Never be too busy for the things that really matter in life.
joy reaney neville - Quick Korean beef bowl...found it on Pinterest and can have it ready rather quickly.
deanna beckwith - I love this! Marie Beckwith Julia Chase A'Laina Beckwith DJ Bierd
gayle martinez - I make dinner 6 days a week~ go to quick dinner is grilled or oven cook chicken breast,salad and veggies.
kellyjo mattson yaksich - We make every attempt to eat dinner together as a family every night....even if it means we are eating at 9pm when everyone finally gets home! It is worth it! My kids love the opportunity to gather, share, and discuss their day.
tina marie - Shepard's pie, nachos, tacos, and breakfast for dinner (personally my favorite lol)
courtney zehner - Home made sloppy joes! Quick easy and delicious !

WOWT 6 News: An investigation is underway into a possible sexting incident at Elkhorn South High School. We're still digging into this story, but here is what we know so far.Comments:
roger hagedorn - Forwarding the pic is a misdemeanor? I hope that means the girl who sent the pic as well.
cece houston - I think it's very interesting how carefully WOWT worded this article compared to the blasting you gave Benson High School kids for something far more harmless. This type of media bias is exactly why Omahans have a 'less than realistic' view of the kids in our city.
nathan duffy - Possible sexting incident? You realize that literally every teen with a cell phone sexts right?
jake davis - Underage kids sharing pics, on devices under contract to their parents, parents are responsible for the service use (like on a landline if kids ran up long distance bills in the days of old), thats a potential child porn charge. Possibly exploitation of a minor too, since it was shared around.
max fu ham - Ladies can sext me as long as your over 18. Pm me for my number
teresa hungate - Time for parents to GROW A SPINE and start taking away their kids cell phones for a change. That's just ONE way to stop this kind of crap from happening. If it happens on a tablet or PC, then TAKE THAT AWAY TOO! Kids aren't going to learn what is or is not acceptable if parents don't ENFORCE rules! And before people start saying "that won't stop them" or "why blame the parents"......bottom line, if parents aren't checking on their kids phones, tablets or PC's, then WHO do you think is going to stop this or at a minimum TRY to prevent it? It isn't the Teachers OR School Faculty members jobs to police our kids cell phone habits. It falls completely on the parents to ensure that their kids are being safe and making smart choices.
joseph lee vampola - Haha duh it's Elkhorn South...
jan evert - How does this have anything to do with the school? That's what I don't understand.
bella melcher - Don't want your minor daughters nudes getting spread around? Raise a lady!
Youth these days are so disrespectful to themselves it's disguisting!
chad e. eagle - They need to start charging these kids with distribution of child pornography. Even pictures of themselves!
lauri labs - Lets talk more about those rocks?
ruth manzer - Max. U r not funny.
matt hernandez - ...they are kids people. Kids do dumb things. Maybe she will learn not to send nudes to ppl. Kids these days dont get to live lives anymore. Some are acting waaaay out because of this. There are too many laws and school regulations. U want to raise my kid and tell them what they can and cant do 24/7? Start paying for food,clothes, luxuries. As far as im concerned successful adults today werent walked around on a leash as adolescents.
derek stephens - I'd rather see real news and let the school deal with it when they figure out what's going on rather than continually see crap journalism from WOWT.
kevin liewer - Pretty minor in the grand scheme of things
wichman david - Maybe it is just a rite of passage for kids...kind of like drinking and underage parties according to so many ..
orlando neri - I mean c'mon that's a teenage little boy you're sending nudes to. They take so much pride in the fact that they got a nude that they send it around to show it off. Pathetic on both sides, and also a pathetic story from wowt. Thank you WOWT for sharing a story that's been happening in possibly every single school in the US.
kara bachman - No surprise since many of their parents and families live in either Spring Ridge or Fire Ridge subdivisions, both known as "swinging" neighborhoods. Watch for the rocks in front of houses-let's others know they "swing". More moral degradation sifting down to the children. Shame on the immoral parents!
chris n heather evenson - With all the things one might be tempted to say about this, there is only one thing that can truly help... It is written, "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else." Everyone makes mistakes...
leslie golbitz eades - I believe distribution of child pornography by a minor, under age 19 is a class IIIA felony in Nebraska.
cody djknumark thomas - This must have turned into singling some body out at the school and a student is now being made fun of or now someone is being labled as a hoe(sorry for language) I'm guessing the student then felt like he or she was being picked on so now teachers and staff got involved.
