Being all cryptic, like Bigfoot or something, Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett's spin team of only Michael "Big Sexy" Grider just sent out a release, saying that the mayor will make a "South Knox announcement" at 5 p.m. today (presumably so he can be on TV) at Emery's 5 & 10 on Chapman Highway.
Commissioner Mike Brown and a number of local business owners will be there for the "exciting announcement about an upcoming event."
My guess is that they're going to hold a larger than usual cash mob throughout the South Knoxville area sometime soon.
No word on whether the city's administration will attend. They got all cagey when former Mayor Victor Ashe asked them about throwing some support toward South Knoxville for his weekly column in the Shopper-News.
