No Taxes in Arena Plan

Great news for Kings fans who don't look forward to driving to Anaheim or Kansas City for home games: The Cal Expo governing board unanimously approved opening negotiations with the NBA. Better news: Those involved understand the public funding mood in California.

"Our effort is focused on trying to build an arena without any new taxes," said NBA consultant John Moag.


Dave Jones, though, continues to be an unabashed hater.

State Assemblyman Dave Jones, D-Sacramento, an ex-officio board member of Cal Expo, pushed unsuccessfully for the board to adopt language requiring staff to examine redevelopment scenarios that didn't include an arena.

So did Mike Bibby sleep with Jones' wife, or his sister?
