Jim Scholz is an Omaha commercial and fine art photographer who specializes in landscape, architecture, and portrait work. The cover photo was taken on September 13, 2008 at the dedication of the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, the footbridge spanning the Missouri River between Council Bluffs and Omaha. Always striving for aesthetic and technical excellence, Scholz used a very large camera with an 8x10-inch piece of film to document the scene. In a large fine art print a wealth of detail is revealed. To see more of Jim's work go to his website at Scholzimages.com.

johnny carson early years

gene leahy mall

Johnny Carson, host of The Tonight Show, began his broadcasting career in 1950 as a host and announcer for WOW radio and television in Omaha. It was an Omaha woman who introduced Carson to an executive in the southern California television market who also happened to be her brother. That connection led to Carson’s departure for Los Angeles, and the rest is television history.

Since 1977, Gene Leahy Mall has been an oasis of green space and water in the midst of downtown, stretching from 10th to 15th Streets between Farnam and Douglas. A recent renovation improved water quality in the manmade lagoon, provided a new trail around the lagoon and brought in new lighting so all can enjoy for years to come.

joslyn castle

Oscar winners Marlon Brando and Henry Fonda both had ties to Omaha—and to each other’s families. Brando was born here in 1924 and Fonda’s family moved to Omaha in 1906. Dorothy Brando acted in early Omaha Community Playhouse productions when her son was still an infant and encouraged a young Henry Fonda to audition for his first play during the 1925-26 Playhouse season.

The George and Sarah Joslyn mansion is officially named Lynhurst, but locals know it as Joslyn Castle because of its distinctive architecture. Located at 39th and Davenport Streets, the structure was built in 1903 to reflect the couple’s affluence. The Castle was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and designated an Omaha landmark in 1979.

The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge crosses the Missouri River between Omaha and Council Bluffs. The curved bridge opened in 2008, and its path spans 3,000 feet with Big Muddy only 60 feet below. A line marks the division between Nebraska and Iowa so visitors can stand with one foot in each state.

Oscar-winning filmmaker Alexander Payne is not only a native son, he also filmed scenes for five of his movies in and around Omaha: Citizen Ruth, Election, About Schmidt and most recently Downsizing. Nebraska was shot elsewhere in the state, but like his other area shoots it provided rare and welcome movie work to local professionals from audio engineers to stylists. 53
