THE CENTER SQUARE — The region once known as the sunny side of Louisville has never looked brighter. That's according to an economic report issued March 6 by an Indiana University Southeast forecaster.

The report, produced by Dr. Uric Dufrene for One Southern Indiana, noted the five Southern Indiana counties in the Louisville metro area created more than 112,800 jobs as of the third quarter of 2022. That's a new record, breaking the record set in the second quarter of last year by nearly 1,000 jobs.
