Working Hard to Get People Working Again reports that a business is moving to Ohio-

Isofoton's U.S. subsidiary, Malaga Isofoton North America, has signed an agreement with the state of Ohio by which the state will assist the company in building a new solar photovoltaic module production facility.
The agreement concludes process that was initiated in 2007. During the past two years the company conducted studies to find the proper location and partners for the facility.
The start of the production at the plant will take place between the years 2010 and 2011, with an estimated production capacity of 60 megawatts of photovoltaic modules. Isofotón is now seeking strategic utility partners to develop its U.S. business plans......

* The Chicago Tribune has information on another move by the Obama White House to help Ohio's unemployed autoworkers:
Ohio is getting a visit from the new White House official leading efforts to help cities and towns that depend on the auto industry.
Ed Montgomery is scheduled to meet with Gov. Ted Strickland and local officials in Cleveland on Thursday.
The White House says the meetings will be closed to the public and the news media. Officials say Montgomery will discuss the administration's plan to support and revitalize auto industry communities and workers......

I'm sure Ohioans are happy to see that President Obama and Gov. Strickland are working together to get people back to work. This is just too important to just sit and do nothing. It will take a lot of effort, but hopefully, it will pay off in the end.
