One of Tampa Bay’s most prominent blogs is on indefinite hiatus. In a letter to readers dated July 30, publisher Jim Johnson writes: Things have gotten busier for me and posts have become less and less often. This was always meant to be something I did in my spare time, and I have less and less of that these days. So I have come to the decision to officially put the blog on hiatus for an indefinite period of time.”

Sorry to see the sun set on State of Sunshine. Jim Johnson published an excellent blog and his work will be missed.
