Dear Bob,

Has Omaha had the same time as Chicago since 1970? If so, then the zone
America/Chicago is the one that serves Omaha. However, if there has been a
difference, you should provide evidence of it and post it to this mailing
list so that action can be taken.

Currently it appears that all of the US part of the Central zone has been
the same since 1970 apart from a few parts of Indiana and North Dakota plus
the Wisconsin border area of Michigan.

Hope that helps.
