Toyota! Oh, What a Feeling?

Phones, e-mails, you name it...all conveying the news that Toyota will be building a plant in our neighboring county of Limestone. Is it true? Tomorrow will tell. The governor is expected to call a joint news conference with auto makers to announce the location of a new manufacturing endeavor.

How many jobs? The number is varying with each communication, but it could be 5,000 at its peak. Even if it's much less, this will be a boon to Lauderdale particularly, as well as Limestone.

Are local workers ready? Let's hope so. Obviously, Lawrence County will want a piece of the pie, as well as Madison and Morgan. So, step up your game, guys! This is what so many have been waiting for, and it's no DreamVision or Inspiration Landing. It's the real deal!
