Center on Main Breaking Ground at Upcoming Mainx24
A major new development, Center on Main, will break ground on the Southside during MAINx24 this Saturday, December 1. Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger will join Center on Main founders, project developers, Southside community members and MAINx24 event goers in recognizing the occasion, which will take place at 12 p.m.
Located at 320 East Main Street, the 20,000 square foot complex, Center on Main, will house the Center for Integrative Medicine, Center MedSpa, physical therapy, and a multi-purpose room to accommodate yoga, tai chi, and educational seminars. Additionally, it will be home to approximately 50 employees. With the expected August 2013 opening, Center on Main will be the largest new construction on Main Street in recent memory.
“There is no doubt, Center on Main will be an impactful and significant addition to the Southside,” said Jon Kinsey, former Chattanooga Mayor and principal partner at KPH Development. “When you look at how the business district on Main Street has evolved over the years, since the original Southside plan in the late 1990’s, you see an evolution of growth that’s not only good for the Southside – but good for Chattanooga as a whole.”
The building’s founders, Terry and Dr. Jeffrey Jump have collaborated with Eric Myers of Elemi Architecture, Rob Taylor of CityScape Development, John Straussberger of The Strauss Company, and designer Sara Webb to produce the LEED building that will make its place on Main Street.
“We are thrilled that Center on Main chose MAINx24 as the right time to break ground on their future home. The Southside is a place where neighborhood collaboration and inclusion is important. MAINx24 is an event that celebrates this philosophy and we love that Center on Main shares it as well,” said Amanda Carmichael, co-chair of MAINx24.
The groundbreaking is part of MAINx24 and is scheduled at 12 p.m. this Saturday, directly following the EPB Southside Parade. Now in its 6th year, Mainx24 will be held on Dec. 1, 2012 with the first event starting at 8:30 am. The event will last a full 24 hours with the final event ending Dec. 2, 2012 at 9:00 am.

ECONOMY-THE DAY AHEAD
UNDATED (AP) -- This week could be a make-or-break period for investors as more than 150 companies in the S&P 500 report their quarterly financial results, including such market-moving names as Apple, Ford, Visa, Pfizer and Exxon Mobil.
So far, first quarter earnings have come in softer than what investors had anticipated, which has caused analysts to write down their forecasts. Most companies have blamed the U.S. dollar as a reason why sales and profits are down.
Today, Restaurant Brands International will report earnings before the market opens; Apple reports after the market closes.
NEPAL EARTHQUAKE-GOOGLE EXECUTIVE
NEW YORK (AP) -- Dan Fredinburg, a Google executive who described himself as an adventurer, was among the hundreds who died in a massive earthquake that struck Nepal on Saturday.
Google confirmed his death. Lawrence You, the company's director of privacy, posted online that Fredinburg was in Nepal with three other Google employees hiking Mount Everest. The other three, he added, are safe.
Google would not give further details. The company says it has launched a "person finder" tool for Nepal to help people find loved ones and "is working to get updated satellite imagery to aid in the recovery effort." Google says it is committing $1 million to the quake response.
Fredinburg started at Google since 2007. He served as product manager and the head of privacy at Google X.
PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- New England fishermen and seafood dealers say they expect a year of meager supply and high prices for several popular species of fish as new restrictions on cod fishing get underway.
The New England Fishery Management Council voted last year to reduce the total allowable Gulf of Maine cod catch limit from 1,550 to 386 metric tons starting May 1. The stricter quota will also limit fishermen's ability to catch other key commercial groundfish species, including haddock, pollock and hake.
Regulators say the cod quota cut is necessary because the level of cod spawning in the gulf is just a tiny fraction of its target. The gulf is one of two critical areas where East Coast fishermen search for cod, along with Georges Bank off of Massachusetts.
SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) -- Corinthian Colleges will shut down all of its remaining 28 ground campuses, displacing about 16,000 students.
The announcement comes less than two weeks after the U.S. Department of Education announced it was fining the for-profit institution $30 million for misrepresentation.
In a statement Sunday, the Santa Ana, California-based company said it was working with other schools to help students continue their education. The closures include Heald College campuses in California, Hawaii and Oregon, as well as Everest and WyoTech schools in California, Arizona and New York.
Corinthian was one of the country's largest for-profit educational institutions. It collapsed last summer amid a cash shortage and fraud allegations.
The Education Department contends that Corinthian failed to comply with requests to address allegations of falsifying job placement data and altering grades and attendance records.
