The California State and Consumer Services Agency announced Saturday that what officials had dubbed the Great California Garage Sale made more than $1.6 million for the general fund. More than 7,000 people attended the sale of surplus state property in a Sacramento-area warehouse Friday and Saturday, officials said. Thousands of unneeded and unclaimed items were offered for sale, including computers, desks, jewelry and a dental chair. More than 600 used state cars were also offered -- 447 of them online, some signed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Saturday night's double-whammy opening night crowd came out as much to experience the cozy new Ahmanson Theatre redesign as to preview the international hit musical "Miss Saigon." "It's open. There's no--what do you call that soft fabric?--velvet. The seats are very comfortable. New York theaters have a feel, this theater feels like L.A.," said director Garry Marshall.

A state board approved a sharply debated deal Tuesday that grants USC control of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and nearly all of the revenues from the taxpayer-owned stadium for the next century. The governing board of the California Science Center, the Coliseum's landlord, voted 7 to 0 to adopt the basic terms for the lease agreement that extends to the private university most of the benefits of owning the historic venue without requiring the school to buy it. The lease will become effective after the state Department of General Services and the California Natural Resources Agency approve a final document and the Science Center board ratifies it. The package could require Sacramento to reimburse two public museums next to the Coliseum for money they might lose to USC because the school will be permitted limited use of their parking lots at a lower price.

Two trustees of the California Science Center's fundraising foundation say the museum will still be hurt by a revised lease that allows USC to run the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The deal would give USC control of museum parking for major Coliseum events. Marvin Holen, the foundation's point person on the USC lease, called the plan a "robbery" because it grants the private university parking revenues that now go to the Science Center, the California African American Museum and Exposition Park.

Roger Kozberg, an insurance executive who helped guide the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum through a $93-million renovation and became a top proponent for the facility's use as an NFL stadium, has died. He was 77. Kozberg had neuroendocrine carcinoma, family members said. He died Friday at his home in Beverly Hills. A Los Angeles native who made the papers at 12 when he turned in a lost wallet containing $50 and eight tickets to USC football games, Kozberg was involved in numerous civic activities but the most public was his passion for the Coliseum.

A few years ago, as the Denver Broncos were beating up on the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl XXXIII, Roderick Wright found himself in a Miami stadium suite with NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and Carolina Panther owner Jerry Richardson. The conversation focused on Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, a fixture in Exposition Park for some 80 years, and whether the timeworn stadium had a big-league future. "What Tagliabue said to me was, 'I don't have a problem with the Coliseum.'
