Enterprise, Alabama

Enterprise is a city in the southeastern part of Coffee County and the southwestern part of Dale County in the southeastern part of Alabama in the Southern United States. The population was 26,562 at the 2010 census. Enterprise is the primary city of the Enterprise Micropolitan Statistical Area, is part of the Dothan-Enterprise-Ozark Combined Statistical Area. Enterprise is famous for the Boll Weevil Monument, a large monument of a woman holding a boll weevil, located in the middle of Main Street; the city erected the statue because the destruction of the cotton crop by the boll weevil had led to agricultural diversity, starting with peanuts and more prosperity than had come from cotton alone. It is said to be the only statue to an insect pest in the world. Enterprise is right outside Fort Rucker, an Army base, the home of Army Aviation. Enterprise is home to Enterprise State Community College; the founder of Enterprise, John Henry Carmichael, first settled there in 1881. Carmichael opened a store, which attracted more settlers to the area, by the next year a post office was relocated from the settlement of Drake Eye to the north to Enterprise.

In 1896, with 250 people having settled there, the city of Enterprise incorporated. Soon afterward, the Alabama Midland Railway came to Enterprise, bringing with it opportunities for commerce and growth. By 1906, ten years after the city incorporated, its population had grown to 3,750; the way of life in Enterprise came under threat in 1915. An infestation of boll weevils had found its way into the region's cotton crops, resulting in the destruction of most of the cotton in Coffee County. Facing economic ruin, the nearly bankrupt area farmers were forced to diversify, planting peanuts and other crops in an effort to lessen the damage and recoup some of the losses inflicted upon them by the invading insect. Two years Coffee County was the leading producer of peanuts in the United States. Enterprise was able not only to stave off disaster, but its economy was renewed by the thriving new crop base. In appreciation, the people of Enterprise erected a monument in the city center to what the monument describes as their "herald of prosperity".

The Boll Weevil Monument was dedicated on December 11, 1919, as a reminder of how the city adjusted in the face of adversity. It is the only monument to an agricultural pest in the world. In the early afternoon of March 1, 2007, Enterprise was hit by a devastating tornado during the February–March 2007 Tornado Outbreak; the tornado caused nine deaths, injured over 121 others, left severe damage in the city estimated at nearly $307,000,000, becoming the worst disaster in Enterprise history. The students names are Michael Bowen Andrew Jackson Ryan Mohler, Peter Dunn lll, Michael Tompkins, Jamie Vidensek, Michelle Wilson Kathryn Strunk and resident Edna Strickland; the worst damage occurred at Enterprise High School, where the eight students died after one hallway was completely destroyed. A quarter-mile wide swath through the downtown area was devastated, with at least 370 houses damaged or destroyed; the National Guard was called into the city, a dusk-to-dawn curfew was implemented after the disaster.

President Bush, who arrived the morning of March 3, declared the county a disaster area. An AmeriCorps team was sent to the city to help participate in disaster relief; the high school was to be relocated to the west end of the Boll Weevil Circle. It was due to be rebuilt by the 2010–11 school year at a cost of over $80,000,000; until the students were required to go to school at the local community college where they built trailers to add classrooms.

Division of Kingston

The Division of Kingston is an Australian Electoral Division in South Australia covering the outer southern suburbs of Adelaide. The 171 km² seat stretches from Hallett Cove and O'Halloran Hill in the north to Sellicks Beach in the south, including the suburbs of Aldinga Beach, Christie Downs, Christies Beach, Hallett Cove, Huntfield Heights, Maslin Beach, Morphett Vale, Old Noarlunga, Onkaparinga Hills, Port Noarlunga, Seaford, Sellicks Beach, Sheidow Park, Port Willunga, Trott Park and parts of Happy Valley and McLaren Flat; the division was named after Charles Kingston, Premier of South Australia, elected to the first House of Representatives in 1901 and the first Federal member of the Division of Adelaide in 1903. Kingston was first based on the Holdfast Bay area to the north of the current boundaries from the 1949 election as a notionally marginal to safe Labor seat. However, it fell to the Liberals in that election; this started a tradition of Labor and the Liberals alternating for long spells in a seat that has moved south over the decades.

It has now moved clear of its original boundaries. It has tended to elect an MP from the governing party of the day, having elected only four opposition MPs. Notably, every sitting member in the electorate's history has been defeated at the polls—none have retired or resigned. Kingston has been represented by Labor MP Amanda Rishworth since the 2007 election where she won with a 54.4 percent two-party vote from a 4.5 percent swing. Going into the 2010 election, it was the most marginal Labor seat in South Australia. However, Rishworth consolidated her hold on the seat in 2010 by winning a 64 percent two-party vote from a 9.5 percent swing. At the 2013 election, Rishworth suffered a 4.9 percent swing to finish on a 59.7 percent two-party vote, but was still the second largest vote of any party in Kingston's history. In 2016, Rishworth further strengthened her hold on Kingston by boosting her majority to 67.1 percent on a swing of 7.7 percent, the strongest result in the seat's history. It is now Labor's second-safest seat in South Australia, behind only Port Adelaide, on two-party terms, however on the primary vote Kingston polled one percent higher at over 49 percent, the highest primary vote of South Australia's 11 seats.

Though Labor picked up a two-party swing in all eleven seats, the presence of Nick Xenophon Team candidates in all eleven seats produced, apart from a suppressed major party primary vote, a result where Rishworth was the only major party candidate in the state to pick up a primary vote swing. Kingston began to move south from 1969 when the Holdfast Bay area was transferred to the newly created seat of Hawker. Successive redistributions saw Hawker continue to push Kingston south over time, by 1984 the seat had moved to its current position, though without the current southern coastal strip; the redistribution before the 2013 election removed Kingston's rural areas with the transfer of around 6,500 voters in McLaren Vale and Willunga to Mayo, increasing Labor's Kingston margin by half a percent. This reduced the area covered by the electorate, down from 377 to 171 square kilometres the same as the 2001 to 2004 boundaries; the previous larger boundaries were used from 2004 to 2013 and loosely from 1993 to 1998.
