Kathleen Blanco's role in New Orleans' recovery underrated
The nation witnessed the Super Bowl game between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens. Regardless of which team you may have been rooting for, the real winner was New Orleans and Louisiana. Whether you realize it or not, people from outside of our region define Louisiana by their perception of New Orleans. Hundreds of media journalists packed the city for more than a week to hype America's most-watched event of the year. Television and radio shows were broadcast live each day from different locales in New Orleans. The consensus of those journalists is that New Orleans is doing quite well following its continued recovery from Katrina. Time after time I heard or read many accounts of how wonderful the city had recovered and was now "better than ever." Lost in all this wonderful coverage is a person that is much criticized and very seldom praised for a vision she presented in the days following the storm — former Gov. Kathleen Blanco.

Florida Panhandle developer pleads guilty over Mike Huckabee's false campaign reports
TALLAHASSEE — Panhandle developer Jay Odom pleaded guilty Tuesday to causing presidential candidate Mike Huckabee to file false campaign reports in 2007. A second charge of laundering $23,000 in contributions to Huckabee will be dropped by prosecutors. Odom was charged with reimbursing 10 donors who each gave the $2,300 maximum contribution to the candidate. The longtime contributor to the Republican Party of Florida and many GOP candidates appeared before U.S. District Judge Lacey Collier in Pensacola. His sentencing was scheduled for April 23. He faces a maximum penalty of five years in federal prison and a maximum fine of $250,000. Tampa Bay Times

Groups want broad EPA probe of tainted Texas water
HOUSTON — More than 80 environmental groups on Monday demanded a broad investigation into whether the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency behaved improperly when it abruptly dropped enforcement actions against a gas driller it had accused of contaminating water in Texas. The 86 groups from 12 states sent a letter to the EPA’s inspector general, Arthur Elkins, asking that he widen an existing investigation into the agency’s actions. They cited an Associated Press report indicating the agency had scientific evidence linking Range Resources’ drilling operations to water tainted with explosive methane and cancer-causing benzene in Weatherford, a town west of Fort Worth.

Taking the Long Way Home to Nashville
Nashville, Tenn.: A startup begins with an idea. From there it gets complicated, as one must postulate how to monetize the idea and, of course, source the capital to build upon these theories. Should one successfully navigate beyond that point, it gets even more difficult. Of course, a little good fortune never hurts and, thus, I am compelled to recognize the Nashville community for just such fortune. My business partner, Garr Schwartz, and I formed our alliance to build the Tennessee Brew Works craft brewery in late 2010 and formerly set about the endeavor in 2011. More than two years later, we’ve raised seven figures in capital for what many would consider an esoteric business investment and are currently renovating an approximately 22,000 square foot facility that will contain our brew house and tasting room (the “Tennessee TapRoom”). But what is most interesting about our startup is that all of our investors live here in Tennessee! The Wall Street Journal

This is our annual "Made in the South" issue and it's timely because there is a new player in the South's manufacturing universe. For almost two decades, economic developers and politicos in the South and the U.S. have been chasing Chinese projects with little or nothing to show. Want proof we've been chasing ghosts in China for years? Okay, go ahead and name a Chinese brand that's made in the South? Tick. . .tick. . .tick. Give up?
