Microsoft in Cedar Falls

Cedar Falls hasn't exactly been the talk of the Iowa Statehouse as a city with the best chance of landing that Microsoft expansion project in this state, but that doesn't mean the city isn't trying. The city is running ads in the Seattle newspaper to make sure it's top of mind in the bigwig's decision making process.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has said Microsoft is considering two central Iowa towns for its operation (although there is no guarantee the company would even pick Iowa, as it is also looking out of state, as well).


The Associated Press reports one of my favorite shows is losing one of its best characters. Jesse L. Martin is leaving "Law and Order" and his character, Detective Ed Green. Martin will star as Marvin Gaye in a new movie, "Sexual Healing." Just when that show was getting good again...
