Thanks to Carly Harrington's knoxnews blog, here is the official announcement that Bob Sukenik, owner of Southern Graces has closed the Sunsphere operations. While the developer Kinsey Probasco Hays are associates of Mayor William Haslam, we will not blame Haslam. As it will cause his campaign to allege that Brian's Blog has some vendetta against Haslam. So, we will blame Bill Lyons. Read the entire Sukenik, press release at Harrington's blog.
