Nice article.

Well we weren't in the top ten...nor the bottom ten either. (Middle 20% of large metros and 2nd highest 20% in 5 year growth). Still have some work to do, but the future looks bright.

Not bad for a county just three years out of bankruptcy.

I would hope that the county with 50% more residents than any other county in the state would lead a raw number category like that. Obviously when you break it down per capita, the results differ a lot. Did you notice where Jefferson County had negative "business growth"?

Had those other counties been in bankruptcy too? I wasn't aware of that.
