    Here’s hoping the lawsuit bankrupts the city and the council members. Make them bake THAT cake.

    Chilhowee Park does not get enough business as it is. Drive more of the business to I-75 Expo Center.

    I actually agree with them as I do with all the ill-informed and self-righteous wonks who make such decisions. The show is a for-profit private enterprise and should be held at a for-profit private venue. Public facilities should be used only for public events. And there’s the slippery slope…that means no more car shows, boat shows, antique shows, home shows, advocacy group promotions and rallies, religious events, or most especially political fund-raisers and conventions, etc.

    And they should have their asses sued off if they don’t make the rule universal and not just to reflect their personal prejudices. Place will be a ghost town, as it should be.

    And while they’re getting their asses sued, don’t they have sunshine laws there in my home state? If so the little clique is legally precluded from having private chats and meetings to discuss and decide on public policy as here where they knew in advance how many members were for it or agin it prior to the open meetings. In Fla violation of that is a criminal thing.

    Cities are agents of the State. Didn’t the State Legislature pass a law that bans discrimination against city property being used for any legal activity?

    When traveling I-40 corridor near Knoxville, be sure to ALWAYS use the I-640 bypass, so as to nearly avoid this city. Don’t buy food or fuel or spend your money in or near Knoxville in any way. That’s been my rule for many a trip thru there. Tell your trucker friends, too.

    FYI, Knoxville City Police ‘Highwaymen’ monitor local Interstates. Watch for them beneath overpasses. Keep an eye out for KPD Blue Hawks (motorcycle cops). They patrol regularly and can be hard to spot in traffic.

    When? About the same time and for many of the same reasons as they took over Austin and San Antone.
