    I haven’t heard any recent updates to the status of the Textile Corporation of America’s planned fall 2017 startup. It seems that info has dried up. What is the status for new jobs in Bledsoe County from this firm?

      There should be an update in next week’s issue barring any more miscommunication from the company.
