MONEY MATTERS: In Indianapolis, Scott Olson reported it is "still unclear" whether the city's Capital Improvement Board (CIB) will absorb $15M next year in Conseco Fieldhouse operating costs. A "provision that allows the Pacers to renegotiate their lease after 10 years could trigger the additional cost, in order to keep the team in the city." CIB VP Pat Early said that an agreement has "yet to be reached, although CIB officials continue to negotiate with the team." Early: "One way or another, that may require money we don't have in the budget" (IBJ.com, 11/9).
RAISE THE ROOF: London's Olympic Delivery Authority Chair John Armitt confirmed that the "stingray-shaped roof of the 2012 Olympics aquatics centre was set in place" today. The 160-meter aquatics center roof "will form part of the entrance to London's Olympic Park." It is "expected that the centre, which will cost around" US$416M, "will be completed in the summer of 2011, leaving a year for testing and trial events" (GUARDIAN.co.uk, 11/11).
