Governors split with Obama on many issues ahead of W.H. meeting
The National Governors Association (NGA) brings the nation’s governors together each year for a meeting that often includes some bipartisan bonhomie, but major issues ahead in 2014 look to divide these executives more than they unite them. From guns to marijuana to the Affordable Care Act, it’s hard to find a consensus issue for both parties' governors these days. And that will be on full display when some Republican governors push the president toward their ideas when they meet with him Monday. CBS News

KINGS MOUNTAIN Local leaders are calling a major economic development announcement scheduled for Monday the second largest in the city’s history, and one that represents a $500 million investment. Mayor Rick Murphrey wouldn’t name the new company coming to this Cleveland County town of 12,000. The city’s largest project was an AT&T data center in 2012, which he estimated as an investment of about $800 million. During construction, the project will create 250 to 300 jobs, Murphrey said. Later 25 to 30 permanent jobs will be created, paying an average annual wage of $60,000 to $70,000. And the firm will be a customer of all four utilities sold by the city – water, sewer, electricity and gas. Charlotte Observer

 Top Ten Places in the South for Relocating California Companies

Urban areas have all kinds of assets that are easy to spot. They have the population, so the labor shed is not usually an issue. Urban areas are also connected by better roads, rail and air service and many have river and deep water ports. Usually Internet access and other forms of communication are more efficient in urban areas. And you have a larger array of quality of life options to choose from, such as the cultural assets found in metropolitan areas.

 FEATURE  
By Mike Randle
The belief that "80 percent of all new jobs come from existing business and industry" is an out-of-date, old-fashioned fabrication. I have no idea how it started, where it started, or who said it first, but there are professionals in economic development as well as leaders of government in the South who actually believe that each year, 80 percent (why 80 percent I don't know, either) of all new jobs are created by existing business and industry. I hear it all the time and I just roll my eyes. There is nothing static in economic development but this: 100 percent of all lost jobs come from existing business and industry. That, and of course 100 percent of the time site consultants never pay for a meal.

According to Chinese theory, yin is a passive, negative force and yang is an active, positive force. Chinese philosophers believe that the opposing forces aren't really contradictory. Instead, they are interconnected and complimentary, interacting to create a balance in one's life.

The Annie E. Casey Foundation's KIDS COUNT report was released in the summer quarter. I try to read it every time it comes out since I find it to be the best indicator of child poverty, a statistic everyone involved in economic development needs to be aware of. The Annie E. Casey Foundation is a charity that supports disadvantaged children.
