Mission accomplished, Tacoma Stars coach Keith Weller came down Sunday after five days atop a 30-foot-high platform in a shopping mall parking lot. Weller, 45, climbed aboard the 6-by-12-foot platform last Tuesday to draw attention to the Major Soccer League team's push to sell season tickets. Team owners imposed July 30 deadline to sell a total of 4,000 season tickets, or, they said, the Stars could go under.

The Angels will put single-game tickets on sale Feb. 23. They won't tell you the prices in advance, so you could go to the Angel Stadium ticket office that day without knowing whether you can afford tickets to the game you really want to see. That is one result of the Angels' dynamic pricing system, part of an industry-wide trend in which teams try to adjust prices to supply and demand rather than let scalpers do it for them. The concept of selling the same seat for the same price for every game appears increasingly dated.

MILLVILLE, N.J. - Norman Rockwell never visited this small south New Jersey town, but he rendered its likeness in hundreds of paintings, from the low-slung brick storefronts along Main Street to the snow-covered banks of the Maurice River. He painted the people, too, all square jaws and determination. Hard working. Humble. "Salt of the earth," Mayor Tim Shannon says. Shannon should know. In addition to being mayor he's fifth-generation Millvillian, part of a family that first settled here just after the Civil War. "There is a core of Millville people that have been here for generations," he says.

Their efforts to reward loyal fans--and woo new ones--will continue tonight at the Forum with a practice that will be open to season ticket-holders and prospective season ticket-holders. At the first renewal deadline, only 2,600-2,700 of last season's 5,500 season tickets had been renewed. Since then, the renewal level has reached about 70%, according to club President Tim Leiweke.
