In a surprise move, the San Diego Board of Port Commissioners sidestepped a vote to rename the new $160-million bay-side convention center after the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and instead chose to make the slain civil rights leader the first inductee of an "Avenue of Honors" on the center's terrace. The board's refusal to vote on the controversial name change sends the question back to the San Diego City Council, which has already voted in favor of the renaming.
