Governors from across the South heading to NC


ASHEVILLE, NC (AP) -- Some governors from across the South plan
to gather in North Carolina starting Friday for three days of
meetings and workshops aimed in part at helping residents of their
states get jobs.

The Southern Governors Association is holding its annual meeting
in Asheville. Governors, other public officials and business
executives are expected to attend. Among the topics on the agenda
are how to solve a skills gap suffered by workers looking for jobs
in the changing economy.

Not all the governors from the association's 16 states and two
territories plan to attend. For example, Texas Gov. Rick Perry is
campaigning for president. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is
speaking at an event in Perry's home state.
