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.

INLET -- Matt's Drafthouse Hot Screamers softball team finished off the 2014 season with a bang.
They came out of the gate on fire in the championship game against The Inn On Gore, putting up 10 runs in the top of the first. Every batter hit the ball hard, and the inning was only ended because of the 10-run rule.
Kyle Houser and DeDe Ste-Marie both singled and then scored when Beth Williamson crushed a three homer. Heather Levi drew a walk, Meg Kraeger singled, Ashley Fowler smacked a double fol ...

Small game hunting season gets underway
By Dick Nelson

New York's small game hunting season opened across the Southern Tier the morning of Oct. 1, and while you can't compare this opener to that of deer season, you can bet a regiment of red and fluorescent orange clad hunters started roaming through fields and forest last weekend.
They're searching for everything wearing fur and feather including rabbits, grouse, woodcock and pheasant. The rabbit population -- bless their little hearts -- seems to be in decent shape, as does grouse.
According to a D ...
