Alabama, Florida, Georgia water wars case could be heard by Supreme Court
The Supreme Court could decide Thursday whether it will hear the case of the tri-state water flow dispute between Florida, Georgia and Alabama, according to a story at the newspress.com. The feud between the states concerns the Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and Flint River Basin and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer's regulation of Buford Dam. The Corps controls the level of water from the dam, the largest of four dams on the Chattahoochee River, which, in turn, controls the water levels in Lake Lanier north of Atlanta and the rivers to the south, the story said.

Will Bobby Jindal cross the VP finish line?: Stephanie Grace
"Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones" may have gone on hiatus, but summer is prime time for reality television. And no staged competition carries higher stakes than the one playing out right now on the presidential campaign trail, where Republican hopefuls are openly vying for the chance to join presumptive nominee Mitt Romney's ticket.

In Florida's ethical swamp, swatting a gnat
Let's review. Florida is governed by an assemblage of politicians who can be bought off for the price of a Slurpee. Ethics? In Florida? This is a bit like trying to find a liquor store in Saudi Arabia. But that didn't stop Gov. Rick Scott from tapping the Florida Commission on Ethics, which has all the juice of a World Wrestling referee, to make sure he could record a greeting for visitors at Tampa International Airport. Say, that's just what we need — a welcome from a public figure who is not even popular with his own constituents. Oh governor? We're trying to lure visitors here, not convince them to book the next flight back to Duluth. Tampa Bay Times

Sen. Marco Rubio's autobiography presents obsessive politician with compelling family story
Marco Rubio was so consumed making fundraising calls for his U.S. Senate race that he didn't notice his youngest son had slipped out of their Miami home and nearly drowned. It is one of many regrets about his political career that Rubio shares in An American Son, his memoir out today. Even when his campaign looked hopeless in summer 2009, Rubio interrupted a family vacation to fly to Washington for meetings. Rubio impressed the editors at National Review and his picture made the cover with the title, "Yes, HE CAN." The exposure led to a landslide of media attention and campaign donations. Tampa Bay Times

No Sweet Home, Alabama
THE depth of my alienation from home hit me last January, when Alabama shut out Louisiana State for the college football championship. Even in the familiar afterglow of ’Bama’s second title in three years, I had to ask myself, what right did my state have to brag, about anything? The pride of the Crimson Tide fan is just the relatively fun side of the state’s reason-blind tribalism, the same hard-wiring that produced its other recent superlative, the “toughest in the nation” immigration law that made criminal suspects of an entire class of human beings — and turned those who tolerated their presence into felon accessories. Thanks to H.B. 56 (the “Beason-Hammon Taxpayer and Citizen Protection Act”), passed a year ago by the state’s first Republican Legislature since Reconstruction, I am ashamed of being from Alabama.

With Deadline Approaching, House GOP Still Holding 1.9 Million Transportation Jobs Hostage
A long-term transportation package that would re-authorize current spending on highway construction projects and lock-in infrastructure spending for future projects appears all but dead thanks to Republican obstruction in the House of Representatives. With time running out before current authorization ends at the end of the month, House Republicans are demanding the Senate add approval of the Keystone XL pipeline to a transportation bill that already passed with widespread bipartisan support.

Connie Mack gives Florida primary the brushoff
Rep. Connie Mack’s strategy to win the Florida Republican primary for the Senate is simple: Ignore it. “We have a 33-point lead,” Mack said last week, explaining his decision to skip three televised GOP primary debates. With a comfy lead, a highly recognizable family name and the support of Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, Mack seems the far-and-away favorite to face off against Sen. Bill Nelson in November. Politico

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Reshoring manufacturing capacity from primarily Asia to the South and Mexico is now a common thing to do and it's all about money. When China joined the World Trade Organization in 2001, the average manufacturing wage in China's Pearl River Delta (PRD) was about 58 cents an hour.

Desperation sometimes masks itself in acceptance. Such was the case for Takelia Carter of Marion, Ark. For Carter, the mother of six school-age children in a low paying job, desperation was normative existence. This was her life in Crittenden County, Ark., deep in the Delta where unfortunately one in four families lives well below the poverty level.

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
