NOT SO ROSY: In Pasadena, Frank Girardot reports Rose Bowl officials on Thursday said that renovation costs "rose by at least $2 million after several bids for portions of the project's final phase came in over budget." Rose Bowl CEO & GM Darryl Dunn said that stadium officials should "consider several options for keeping the cost of the project down." Since its inception, the "cost of the Rose Bowl project has ballooned." Originally estimated "at $152 million, Dunn's report now puts a price tag of $193.7 million on the renovation" (PASADENA STAR-NEWS, 11/2).
