OAKLAND AUTHORITY MEMBERS WANT TO SETTLE SUIT WITH RAIDERS

          Although Oakland city and Alameda county officials
     "haven't spoken to the Raiders" since they filed suit
     against them in September, "now -- just a month before
     Election Day -- two mayoral candidates say an olive branch
     has been extended to the team," according to Laura Counts of
     the OAKLAND TRIBUNE.  Ignacio De La Fuente, a city council
     member who serves on the Coliseum Authority, said he has
     crafted "a comprehensive proposal" to resolve the lawsuit if
     a meeting with the Raiders can be arranged.  County
     Supervisor Mary King, who chairs the Authority, said that a
     letter has been sent to the Raiders requesting a settlement
     meeting before a May 15 court date.  Both candidates deny
     that any "settlement proposal" is timed to coincide with the
     election (Laura Counts, OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 5/5).
