Abstract:
Alcoa Power Generating, Inc. received a 50-year lease in 1958 to generate hydropower on the Yadkin River. Four dams were built to power the nearby Alcoa aluminum plant which employed 1,000 in Stanly County and the town of Badin. The lease expired in 2008, and the plant closed in 2002. The dams still generate power which nets millions in profit yearly for Alcoa. The dams belong to Alcoa but the water belongs to North Carolina. The governor and Stanly County officials opposed renewal of the lease because the company is making money but not putting much back into the area. The dispute is now in the courts.

Abstract:
The state's aviation industry uses emerging technology and a skilled workforce to soar to new heights. The jobs are high-paying--$25 an hour and up. Plus the contracts are for five years or more, adding stability to the economy. Among the companies are Charlotte-based Goodrich Corp. which manufactures 80 percent of the world's landing gear and Spirit AeroSystems, which is building a $570 million plant at Kinston's Global TransPark which will employ 1,000 by 2014 to make components of the Airbus A350.
