Iowa Downtown Forums Coming in June
By Jim Engle via IDRC
A thriving downtown is the beating heart of a community, and local businesses are the arteries keeping that beat loud and strong.  Even if a business isn’t on the city square or Main Street, it benefits from the increased traffic and commerce the draw of a vibrant downtown can provide – everyone wins.
Spring Cleaning
By IA SourceLink Admin
It’s spring! Growing up in Iowa, the coming of warmer weather also meant the dreaded spring house cleaning – curtains, windows, floors, carpets; the list seemed endless.  I never understood why those long-awaited-for warm days had to be spent inside with the dust, when all I wanted to do was run barefoot outdoors.  As a result, I now rebel from this old routine and tend to just keep things tidy year round.  This practice could hold true for your business as well.
Taking Care of Business 
By Dan Beenken via CBGI
 Episode 137 – The Bizarro Jerry – is a classic (aren’t they all?) Several amazing story lines come together to create a perfect medley of TV soup – mmmmmmmmmmm. It was like the mulligatawny of sitcoms. (Please tell me you got the Soup Nazi reference)
