A group attempting to block a $75-million athletic and arts complex at Junipero Serra High School failed to gather enough signatures to put the issue on the ballot, clearing the way for construction to begin as early as next week.

Cal State Northridge's student senate on Tuesday voted 14-0 to place a referendum on the ballot in the October campus elections, asking students to help finance new athletic facilities and a recreation center. The referendum calls for a fee increase of $27 per student in 2000 and 2001, and $36 in 2002, with the money going toward the construction of a recreation center, an 8,000-seat multipurpose stadium and a 3,000-seat baseball stadium.

Why else would the NFL hold the door open for as long as it takes the two competing Los Angeles football ownership groups to get all of their paperwork in order and win themselves an expansion franchise?

In another move toward tightening control over the athletic program, Cal State Northridge President Blenda J. Wilson has formed an advisory board on athletics comprised of the university's four vice presidents, and faculty, staff and community members. The board will be chaired by Jim Goss, Wilson's executive associate, and will meet monthly to monitor spending and progress toward meeting gender-equity laws.
