NEW GEAR: Wichita State's athletic department on Tuesday announced that Koch Arena “will have a new center-court scoreboard and digital displays over the exits to the concourse.” WSU said that the installation, which “includes a new sound system, will be complete by the start of the school year in August" and costs $1.8M (WICHITA EAGLE, 7/3).
SUPERMARKET SWEEP: In Sacramento, Kasler & Bizjak reported a “petition drive to force a public vote on a new downtown Sacramento Kings arena has run into a legal wall from Safeway Inc., which has banned solicitors from gathering signatures in front of its stores.” Safeway last week “filed a lawsuit to keep solicitors from gathering signatures in front of the 19th Street store in midtown and other Safeway outlets” (SACBEE.com, 7/2).
