Auto supplier to build in Shelbyville

Brakes and chassis parts maker SMW Automotive plans to invest $26 million in a Bedford County plant that will employ about 170 people in five years. Michigan-based SMW runs eight other U.S. plants and supplies to Nissan and Volkswagen, among others. It's the second auto-related ECD in recent weeks for the region between Nashville and Chattanooga: Another Nissan supplier early this month said it will add 34 jobs in Manchester.

Labor Day Linkgate: The Saga Continues

Katie Allison Granju comments on a reporter from her hometown paper accusing a blogger of bias:
First of all, bloggers don’t have to be objective. Second of all, this is pretty ironic, coming from a guy who - as a straight news reporter - covers the Muslim beat for a newspaper while at the same time writing incredibly biased, anti-Muslim rhetoric on his personal blog, and as a poster at sites like Free Republic. Given what Mosely clearly believes personally, and has expressed publicly about the hot-button issue of immigration. I continue to find it absolutely incredible that he has been given this beat to cover. It’s a sensitive issue, and it needs to be covered with extreme thoughtfulness and sensitivity.
