    Hi Mary,

    I understand that you are familiar with Milton. Could you please give me your impressions of the high school there? Thanks.

    Mary, we moved to the Chattanooga area 20 years ago and have never once regretted the move. We love it here. After spending a few years in the Illinois prairie flatlands, we thought we had gone to heaven with all this beauty around here. My husband seems to think that the problem with no seeming interest from employers is the fact that most of them probably don't want to pay traveling/relocating expenses unless absolutely necessary. Chattanooga was just rated last month as the #3 city in the nation as far where people would like to relocate. (This is from the Relocate America website.) Traffic problems are few and the public school system is great (especially in North Hamilton County - but I'm prejudiced as that is where we live). My kids all attended the local university "Univerity of Tennessee-Chattanooga", and that is another big plus that Chattanooga has over Nashville. Nashville does have Vanderbilt and several other colleges/universities, but they are all private, I'm pretty sure, and fairly expensive. I'm all for letting my tax dollars pay for the education if possible. You might try getting a local P.O. address with mail forwarding and list a local address and see how your husband's job hunting goes. That would be my suggestion.
