Curbed Construction spreads its wings
Main Street beginnings lead to Knoxville projects

Three men park their trucks on a parcel of Hamilton County land that was once home to a motel of ill repute and make their way indoors.

Instead of tapping a bell at a check-in desk, they park their posteriors on the cushioned chairs that circle a polished wood table in the dining area of a spanking new townhome.

Law school mentor guides Markle to career niche

The future was ahead of Central Michigan University Chippewas pitcher Braxton Markle as he took the mound against the Miami University RedHawks to secure a save for his team in 2018.

Of immediate concern was the first of several RedHawks batters Markle, a southpaw, needed to send back to the dugout. While the hitters were 60 feet, 6 inches away, Markle’s dream of becoming a major league pitcher was in the back of his thoughts as he began hurling carefully aimed balls toward the plate.

Safety Stand-Down helps builders focus on safety

In construction, safety isn’t an option – it’s a priority. Nearly one in five workplace fatalities occurred in the construction industry in 2021, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, with over one-third of these deaths caused by falls.

Film Festival prepares another eclectic lineup

Consistently surprising and eclectic programming has helped to make the Chattanooga Film Festival one of the “25 Coolest Film Festivals in the World” (MovieMaker Magazine, 2022), one of the “Best Horror Festivals in the World” (Dread Central, 2022) and one of the “World’s Best Genre Festivals” (MovieMaker, 2020 and 2021).

Financial Focus: Younger workers must balance financial priorities

If you’re a younger worker just starting out in your career, you’ve got tremendous personal and professional opportunities ahead of you. But this is also when you will need to make some key decisions – especially about your financial priorities.

Rogers column: Penny for your restoration? The coin still has value

My church has launched a fundraising campaign that, as a side effect, restores a measure of dignity and worth to a long-scorned object: the lowly penny.

Beyond that, it also serves as a reminder for me about the spiritual value of things that might hold little or no monetary utility. A sermon in action, if you will.

Vols piling up home runs, continuing record 5-year run

Nothing is guaranteed in sports. But the odds are good that someone on the third-ranked University of Tennessee baseball team will hit a home run during any game.

The Vols have continued to hit balls out of the park with regularity this season. They tied a season-high with six home runs in the series-opening win over Missouri last weekend. Tennessee has hit six home runs in a game five different times this season.

Rebuild is on with strong draft, spending money
Titans have $19M in cap space remaining to sign rookies, draw more free agents

The 2024 draft is over, but the Tennessee Titans rebuild is still far from finished.

Yes, the Titans nabbed a trio of potential immediate starters in this year’s draft in tackle JC Latham, nose tackle T’Vondre Sweat and inside linebacker Cedric Gray. But general manager Ran Carthon admits the Titans will be busy once again in free agency to fill needs at safety, edge rusher and depth at tight end.

Career Corner: Nixing of noncompetes will be a win for workers

The Federal Trade Commission announced last week it is banning noncompete agreements across the country with a rule that applies to almost all workers. You read that right: The FTC does not want your employer to be able to force a noncompete onto you.

Behind the Wheel: What you need to know about wrapping your car

Gaze around the next time you’re stuck in traffic and see if you’re not surprised, maybe even a little saddened, by the monochromatic sea around you.

Modern cars come in a fantastic variety of shapes and sizes, but far fewer explore the more vibrant shades of the color wheel.
