TROUBLE CONTINUES IN DALLAS AS CITY COUNCIL MEETS

     In a "volatile" Dallas City Council meeting Wednesday,
members learned the city has reportedly offered Mavericks Owner
Don Carter $12.9M in "bond funds left over from earlier bond
projects."  This "surprised" many arena opponents because city
officials have consistently said taxpayers' money "would not be
used on the arena project."  According to City Manager Ted
Benavides, the bond money "would be used for infrastructure
improvements" at the proposed site, southeast of Reunion Arena.
Later in the meeting, council members "resoundingly rejected" a
proposal to place a nonbinding referendum on the May 6 ballot
that would have asked voters "whether the city should build a new
arena" (Sylvia Martinez, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/2).
