Copper mining caused Tennessee’s “Badlands”

The Ducktown Basin used to be known as “Tennessee’s Badlands.” But unlike the Badlands of South Dakota, Tennessee’s version was man-made. After the Civil War, companies began mining copper in Polk County. Since copper doesn’t come out of the ground ready to be used, they heated the ore (a process known as smelting).

Tested: 2022 Hyundai Kona N vs. Cherohala Skyway

From the July/August 2022 issue of Car and Driver. On the Cherohala Skyway, sometimes the corners go on for so long, it feels like you're driving up the side of a spiral ham. There are no gas stations, no convenience stores, and no apparent reasons for this 43-mile ribbon of pavement to exist. It connects Tellico Plains, Tennessee, with Robbinsville, North Carolina, two places that their own residents might admit never needed connecting. They weren't until 1996, when the skyway was completed after 34 years of construction that cost about $100 million.

Murphy AD, girls basketball coach Ray Gutierrez resigns after consolidation setback
