SHOVELS IN THE GROUND: In Sacramento, Dale Kasler noted work "finally began" on Friday for the Kings’ new $477M arena. Mayor Kevin Johnson and Kings President Chris Granger "made brief speeches to a crowd of about 100 construction workers outside the south end of the mall, and a few minutes later the project got underway." Before getting to work, demolition crews "donned purple hard hats and posed for pictures with the Kings’ mascot Slamson, outfitted in a tool belt" (SACRAMENTO BEE, 8/1).
