Build a college in Hamilton County

What if there were a college, even just a two-year college, in Hamilton County?
This may sound absurd, but it was a possibility in 1990. What happened in 1990 was what didn't happen in 1990. To understand, look back to the mid-1980s.

It's no secret the reason most sportsmen purchase a hunting dog is to locate more game. But after the first few days of the season, many of them come to the shocking conclusion they would have been better off had they ...
