AEG's Tim Leiweke, who heads a group looking to build an NFL stadium next to Staples Center, said the project could be completed in time to host the 50th Super Bowl in February 2016. Leiweke said his group would ask the NFL to waive its traditional requirement that a venue be open for at least a year before being eligible to host its marquee event. He said that if all goes as planned, a privately financed, $1-billion L.A. stadium could be ready for the 2015 season. The first Super Bowl was played at the L.A. Coliseum.

Is rocker Jon Bon Jovi angling to be an NFL owner? According to a report by CBS' Jason La Canfora, Bon Jovi is "consumed" with buying an NFL team and is positioned to make a play for the Buffalo Bills when they eventually are up for sale.

Re "Too darn hot," Opinion, March 14 William deBuys painted a doom-and-gloom picture of my city, Phoenix, based on climate change and water use, warning if we don't take better care of our land and resources, Phoenicians will flee. Just like Los Angeles, Phoenix has its challenges. That's why we recognized the need for future-oriented solutions like the Central Arizona Project canals and the Groundwater Management Act, the latter of which requires builders to demonstrate they will be able to have a 99-year water supply.
