Please, please, please help me. Please. I'm begging you, please. I really need to get this done. I'm unemployed temporarily. I've been laid off and this is just terrible timing for me. Rents due, I've no food in my house, I'm panicking! Please, will you please help me with this or at least figure it out?

The cost of living has gotten out of control in Omaha, Ne. If you use 3.00 a month in water, your total water bill is 80.00 due to city negligence in not repairing sewer pipes many years ago when federal funding was given to the city. Now the taxpayers are eating it. Also the extreme temperatures make it expensive to heat and cool your home. Rents are VERY high, and you don't get much in terms of a growing city. Property taxes 5th highest in the country. The roads are not taken care of. Don't buy a newer car if you move here, as the front end will go out from the potholes. This is what I have observed as a long term resident.
