Bask in Baldwin County’s economic boom with the new issue of Lagniappe, where our cover story explores recent job creation in sectors including manufacturing, heath care and technology in Alabama’s fastest growing county. Last week, UTC Aerospace Systems announced an expansion at its Foley plant that will add 260 new jobs. It came on the heels of other economic news including the groundbreaking of a new Mitchell Cancer Institute treatment facility in Fairhope and a deal to development a technology park in Daphne. Our Bay Briefs this week offer the latest in a First Amendment case involving an investigative journalist who is charged under a recent Alabama law protecting expunged records, and an update on Mobile County’s proposed $40 million soccer complex, where commissioners are poised to purchase property from landowners who aren’t identified. Commentary hits on politics and justice, Cuisine visits Dumbwaiter for a fulfilling lunch, Music interviews CMA Award nominee Chase Rice, and Arts has a poignant obituary of writer and playwright Danielle Juzan, who passed away unexpectedly last month. Sports examines the separate red snapper limits set by the state and federal governments, our real estate column has the skinny on grants for improvements to local airports and Boozie saw a whole lot of taco eating and Maloney-mania last week you can’t miss. It’s also the last week to submit nominations for the 2016 Nappie Awards! Finals begin June 2! The new issue of Lagniappe is online and on stands now!
