  • But, but, where's Ramon Sessions?

Good morning, Cleveland. Here's some stuff to read while you check the calendar for the next holiday.

— President Obama is in Parma today for a speech at Tri-C. Look for him to tout new small-business tax breaks that he hopes will kick start the economy. Don't look for him to speak about Tri-C's most famous alum: Ben Wallace. (NewsNet5)

— For any Cavs/video game fans worried about what Cleveland's roster would look like in the new version of NBA Jam coming out later this year, don't fret, you don't have to play with Mo Williams if you don't want to. NBA Jam will offer Cavs fans the option of playing with the vintage combo of Mark Price and Brad Daugherty, just like the good old days. (ESPN)

— Voters in Cuyahoga County took the first step yesterday from having their money squandered by outright criminals to having their money squandered by regular politicians. Get the results of the primary here. (Cleveland.com)

— A 187,000-square-foot Wal-Mart is opening in Lorain and the people there are just pleased as punch about it. The mega-store will be the crown jewel of an area that already boasts an Applebee's, Kohl's, and Home Depot, thus distinguishing it from exactly zero other places in America. (Lorain Morning Journal)
