PRESSING FORWARD: In Virginia, Aaron Applegate cites Virginia Beach city officials as saying that a deal for a new arena in Seattle “won't affect Virginia Beach's effort to build an arena and attract its own team.” Virginia Beach Mayor Will Sessoms said that he “doesn’t think the Seattle deal will interfere with Virginia Beach’s arena aspirations.” Councilmember Glenn Davis said, “What's happening in Seattle is irrelevant to what's happening here."
