Spilling the secrets of the ‘Secret City’

Who knew the beginning of the Atomic Age was so funny? Sort of like the Humor in Uniform section of “Reader’s Digest,” Oak Ridge historian Ray Smith uses homespun humor to tell a condensed version of the key role his city played in the development of the atomic bombs that ended World War II.

Engineer, 96, recalls in early Oak Ridge, ‘beautiful women’

Some “Secret City” memories stand out more than others for Monroe Malow. The 96-year-old retired chemical engineer, who now resides in a senior assisted-living home just outside of Nashville, was brought to Oak Ridge from New York in the early 1940s to work on the top-secret Manhattan Project.

STATEWIDE

Against all odds: Tennessee goes all-in for legal, online sports betting. Here’s how it will work

Against all odds, legal online sports betting will soon be available in Tennessee, possibly in time for the SEC Championship football game, the college football national championship game, the Super Bowl and most of the Predators’ and college basketball seasons.

JOE ROGERS: MY TAKE

Flowery terms for death just won’t ‘leave this world’

People don’t seem to die very often in the South. I don’t mean that Southerners live forever, though some sweaty July and August days can seem to last an eternity. They’re just less likely to be described as having died.

UT SPORTS

Pitching depth helps Lady Vols reach Super Regionals

Clutch hits. Strong pitching performances. Impressive defensive plays. The Tennessee softball team put it all on display last weekend during the NCAA Regionals at Sherri Parker Lee Stadium.

NEWSMAKERS

The Tennessee Medical Association has named Elise C. Denneny, M.D., FACS, its president.

BRIEFS

UT student startups win $5K cash prizes

Andy’s Beekeeping LLC and Rolling Storage LLC, student startup businesses, were top winners in the Graves Business Plan Competition, winning $5,000 each.

BEHIND THE WHEEL

Can you own an electric car without a home charger?

A popular selling point for electric vehicles is the notion that you never have to stop for gas. Your “gas station” is in your garage – simply plug in your vehicle to charge it overnight.

PERSONAL FINANCE

Let’s get real about cost of health care in retirement

You won’t pay for health care in retirement with one lump sum. That’s the way these expenses are often presented, though, and the amounts are terrifying.

MILLENNIAL MONEY

If the word ‘budget’ bums you out, use another word

Webster’s New World dictionary defines budget as: “a plan or schedule adjusting expenses during a certain period to the estimated or fixed income for that period.”

CAREER CORNER
