Immigration Spreads
Throughout Nation By J OEL K OTKIN
J ames Johnson was born in the rural south, in the tiny hamlet of Falkland, N.C., and grew up in a society sharply divided between black and white, much as it had been since well before the Civil War. "The only time we saw someone who was not black or white," the University of North Carolina business professor recalls, "was on TV or occasionally during the summer in the fields." Today Johnson, also a scholar at the Kenan Institute in Chapel Hill University, sees the emergence of a very different North Carolina - a state that is becoming one of the fastest growing immigrant hubs in the country. Drawn by the region's buoyant economy, new immigrants, largely from Central America and Mexico, have poured into the region, drastically changing its long-established racial character and adding to its basic economic vitality. Since the mid-1990s, immigration to North Carolina has risen by 73%, the largest such increase in the nation. Three of the top four regions in the country with the strongest increase in Latino immigration are in the state.

Analysis by: William Frey The new immigration patterns have forced some demographers, such as the University of Michigan's William Frey, to reassess their 1990s analysis of America's changing racial profile. Formerly Frey saw America as divided between immigrant "magnets", such as Los Angeles and New York, and areas like Las Vegas and North Carolina, that were primarily luring domestic migrants.

Why Place Still Matters in the Digital World By Doug Henton
ere is a book that should be required reading by every regional steward in America. Joel Kotkin, a senior fellow at Pepperdine University who writes a monthly column on "Grassroots Business" for the New York Time s, make the strong case for why place still matters in the digital world. His paradoxical message is: " The more technology frees us from the tyranny of place and past affiliation, the greater the need for individual places to make themselves more attractive." Kotkin colorfully illustrates his point with a rich range of interesting examples from communities across America. What matters today is talent, quality of life and an entrepreneurial environment, not low costs and access to raw materials. Kotkin’s law: Wherever knowledge workers cluster, in small towns or big cities that is where wealth will accumulate. Knowledge workers want good places to live. So places better get busy trying to create livable communities attractive to knowledge workers. Kotkin points out two trends that reinforce this urban renaissance. Immigration has transformed the landscape of most America cities. According to Kotkin, this has been a good thing- adding to the talent pool, creating urban vitality and promoting cross-cultural trade. A second trend has been the rise of creative services and the emerging cultural industrial complex in cities. He makes the case that "The cultural intensive nature of knowledge value production draws on a different, often younger, demographic base that is more attracted to a distinctly urban environment."

Southside Region
Southside is traditionally defined as the region south of the James River, east of the Blue Ridge, west of Tidewater, and north of No' Carolina. In the early 1700's the colonial governors were accused of favoring development of the region north of the James River, and "Southside" was the frontier at Southampton and Brunswick counties. Governor Spottswood built Fort Christianna, but he purchased land in the Rapidan/Rappahannock watershed and started his Germanna colony there. If you accept the James River and North Carolina boundaries, then the northern and southern edges of Southside are relatively easy to define. However, the residents of Chesterfield and Powhatan counties (and even Petersburg, Colonial Heights, and Dinwiddie) might prefer to be classified as part of the Richmond-centered "capital region" now.
Sunlight on the Southside (1934) starts with:
The title chosen for this work, makes appropriate some explanation of what is meant by "The Southside." The Southside is territory on the south side of James River but just exactly what area is referred to when the term is used is not always clear.
After multiple efforts to clarify the region's boundaries, the author concluded with:

The Regions of the United States New England The Mid-Atlantic The South The Midwest ... The West Americans often speak of their country as one of several large regions. These regions are cultural units rather than governmental units formed by history and geography and shaped by the economics, literature and folkways that all the parts of a region share. What makes one region different from another? A region's multicultural heritage as well as distinct demographic characteristics like age and occupation also make regions different and special. Within several regions, language is used differently and there are strong dialects. There are also differences in outlook and attitude based on geography.

New England has played a dominant role in American history. Until well into the 19th century, New England was the country's cultural and economic center. The earliest European settlers of New England were English Protestants who came in search of religious liberty. They gave the region its distinctive political format town meetings (an outgrowth of meetings held by church elders) in which citizens gathered to discuss issues of the day. Town meetings still function in many New England communities today and have been revived as a form of dialogue in the national political arena. New England is also important for the cultural contribution it has made to the nation. The critic Van Wyck Brooks called the creation of a distinctive American literature, in the first half of the 19th century, "the flowering of New England." Education is another of the region's strongest legacies. The cluster of top-ranking universities and colleges in

Notes From Fayetteville; North Carolina Under Friendly Fire
By Catherine Lutz ( Op-Ed ) 848 words FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. At a quiet rural crossroads 25 miles northwest of the Army's Fort Bragg, a local lawman shot two soldiers on a Special Forces training exercise two weeks ago Saturday, killing one. The deputy feared for his life when the soldiers dressed in flannel shirts and jeans and failing to identify themselves grabbed for an automatic rifle in their bag. The soldiers wrongly assumed that the sheriff was in Pineland with them, Pineland being the imaginary country where these exercises have taken place over the last 50 years. By the Army's and most locals' accounting, the problem was a simple miscommunication. But the accident raises questions about the size and scale, invisibility, and day-to-day home-front impact of America's military the largest armed force the world has ever seen.

An e-bulletin of the Family Network of CPRN
Welcome to Urban Nexus , a monthly e-bulletin of policy research, news and events on cities and communities launched by Canadian Policy Research Networks (CPRN) in October 2002. Urban Nexus is for policy makers, researchers and interested members of the public seeking up-to-date information, from Canadian and non-Canadian sources, about new research on cities. To view archived Urban Nexus summaries on the CPRN Web site, simply click here: November 13, 2002 – Cities and Poverty With roughly 80 percent of Canadians living in cities, Canada is now one of the most urbanized countries in the world. Our cities have tremendous potential to be cosmopolitan centres of knowledge-based production and idea-driven innovation. Indeed, Urban Nexus for October 2002 described a growing body of Canadian and international research demonstrating the inherent dynamism of the urban milieux. However, cities are also the spaces and places concentrating the greatest threats to social inclusion. The geographies of both prosperity and poverty in Canada are increasingly urban. This issue of Urban Nexus highlights leading-edge research exploring different facets of the complex problems of income inequality, social polarization, and spatial segregation in metropolitan regions.

American Cities THE CENTRAL CITY THE SUBURBS THE NEW URBANISM ASSESSING THE AMERICAN CITY We're coming, finally, to a sequence of four portraits of the world's humanized landscapes. That's what human geography is finally about. You could say that we're looking at pattern now, rather than process. Or you could say that we're looking at the visible consequences of all the activities we've been tracing. I want to begin with American cities, because they're the places we know best. What comes to mind with this topic? One thing is downtown, that cluster of skyscrapers that immigrants first saw from the decks of liners coming into New York's harbor. Now we mostly see downtown through a car or plane window, but it still grabs our attention. Around it, there is the huge penumbra of suburbia: freeways, arterial streets, curvilinear residential streets, commercial strips, a carpet of houses with backyard pools, and a scattering of bigger buildingsshopping centerss, college campuses, hospitals, stadiums, warehouses, and factories. Those are the tangibles. There's something else, too. Maybe it's excitement. Maybe it's fear. Maybe it's a sense of a world with nothing worth doing or seeing. Maybe it's some of each.

    Project Description
    City-wide Technology Enrichment Program (CTEP) is a city-initiated effort aimed at enriching the lives of Durham, North Carolina's residents by imparting computer skills. Launched in November 1999, the program operates from computer labs located within nine multi-purpose recreation centers maintained by the city of Durham's Department of Parks and Recreation. Classes are aimed at all age groups during weekdays, evenings, and weekends. The program involves over 30 partners from the public, nonprofit, and business sectors who have contributed their unique skills and knowledge toward the service of over 1,100 residents in the program's first year of operation. CTEP is funded by the city of Durham with less than $100,000, which was used to leverage over $1.2 million in additional services and products. Web Site Why Selected The Children's Partnership chose the City-wide Technology Enrichment Program (CTEP) as a model of city leadership in addressing the Digital Divide because of the following features:

    American Geography MAP
      T he region of southern culturethe Deep South ( Map 7 : 33K)can be viewed as a geographic composite of beliefs, attitudes, patterns, habits, and institutions. Many of the early patterns and current changes are explicitly geographic; many others have geographic consequences. Strong differences exist within the South. The Gulf Coast, the southern highlands, the Georgia-Carolinas Piedmont, and many portions of the northern interior South each possess their own versions of southern culture. But they are also clear about the "southern-ness" they share. THE HERITAGE The earliest European colonization in America was commercial and exploitative. And the coastal plain south of Delaware Bay, especially that south of Chesapeake Bay, contained many areas that appeared ideal for agricultural exploitation. The long, hot summers, regular rainfall, and mild winters permitted settlers a selection of crops complementary to those grown in northern Europe. The large number of rivers that crossed the plain, navigable by small boats at least, allowed settlement to expand freely between the James River in Virginia and the Altamaha River in Georgia. Population densities remained low throughout most of the region, with urban concentrations larger than the village size limited to port cities (Norfolk, Virginia; Wilmington, North Carolina; Charleston, South Carolina; Savannah, Georgia) or the heads of navigation on the main rivers (Richmond, Virginia, and, later, Columbia, South Carolina, and Augusta, Georgia). The strong rural and agrarian elements of southern culture established a pattern that remained significant until after the mid-20th century.

    The Next Great Storm
    We have built and are building below the level reached by past floods, none of which are as large as those that will occur. . . . The worst is yet to be. From Floods and Droughts: The Worst Are Yet to Be , by N.C. hydrogeologist Ralph Heath, 1978 Increased intense hurricane activity striking U.S. coastal areas is a more assured threat to the U.S. than that of earthquakes, greenhouse gas warming, and other environmental problems which are receiving comparatively much greater attention. From Gray, Landsea, Mielke, Berry, and Knaff, Discussion of Atlantic Basin Seasonal Hurricane Activity in 1995 As hurricane Floyd swept past Florida and turned toward the Carolinas near the peak of the 1999 tropical storm season, there was actually some cause for relief on the part of local officials and storm watchers along the Tar Heel coast. Though the storm clearly was headed their way, most observers were thankful that the once-mighty hurricane was weakening as it edged northward. Just days before it had been a strong category four, and fears of a Hazel- or Hugo-like catastrophe seemed to wane with each update from the National Hurricane Center. Floyd was coming ashore with heavy rains and destructive tides, but at least it was a weaker system as many viewed it; it would make landfall as
