Bledsoe County, Tenn., is home to one of the state’s largest ongoing construction projects.

If there’s anything that teachers need in a school, it is an environment where they can keep a watchful eye on students and make sure that the young ones are not getting into any trouble.  And that is what D.H.

When it comes to enjoying all that college football has to offer, the sport, its competitors and the stadium are only a fraction of the experience.

The economy is booming in the city of Hillsboro, Ore. The fifth-largest city in the state is home to Intel Corp. and near the Beaverton, Ore., headquarters of Nike. “It is [a portion] of the Portland metro area that’s exploding,” Travis Baker says. With such strong growth, it was only a matter of time before other sectors needed to expand, too, including the local healthcare industry.

Students attending the second-largest university in the United States will soon have a high-quality off-campus living option.

The development is the latest in the University House brand owned and operated by Inland American Communities Group Inc.

One of the nation’s top-ranked hospitals in terms of quality care will soon have an all-new facility courtesy of one of the largest hospital builders in the United States.
