60 Minutes’ effect: showers of positive news on Golden Triangle

Mississippi got the nation’s attention Sunday night – and it was all positive.
CBS’ “60 Minutes” focused on the economic strides of the Golden Triangle, whose points are Starkville, Columbus and West Point.
And it revolved around Joe Max Higgins, the colorful chief executive of LINK, the economic development agency for the area.
Higgins said on Monday he was surprised by the outpouring of phone calls, emails and social media contacts because of the show.
