Alarmingly, we haven't had a new scheme to consider since Tuesday. Hey, step up, civic and business leadership. Float something; twice today, to make up for yesterday.

It was so hot Ticat owner Bob Young took off his ever-present cap to use it as a fan, and $74 million fell off the top of his head. For a new ... OK, let's say it all at once, staaaaaaadium, but this time, on the Mountain.
