KEEP ON THE SUNNY SIDE: In Phoenix, Mike Sunnucks reports the Suns and the city are "ponying up $10 million for renovations and repairs at US Airways Center," which are "already under way." City of Phoenix Finance Dir Jeff DeWitt said that the city is "covering $7 million and the Suns are paying $3 million." Sunnucks reports the Suns are "paying to replace some seats in the downtown Phoenix arena to convert some luxury boxes into smaller theater boxes." Suns Senior VP/Communications & Public Affairs Tanya Wheeless said, "From a fan experience standpoint, we will be replacing a large number of seats in the upper and lower bowl areas. We will also be adding more theater boxes, which have been well-received by the market as businesses look for a high-end, all-inclusive option to entertain business associates." She added that the new effort "will include installation of seven additional theater-style boxes on the suite level of the 18,400-seat arena" (PHOENIX BUSINESS JOURNAL, 9/7 issue).
