Demolishing and rebuilding part of the Convention Center — a move that is central to the stadium deal — would require issuing $195 million in bonds, according to a proposed agreement released by negotiators for Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the City Council.

After several days of work, a team of 13 prominent architects, engineers and historic preservationists from around the country has produced five alternative plans for reconstructing the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. All of the plans lower the playing field, bring thousands of seats closer to the action, provide for luxury boxes and elite club seating, maintain or augment the stadium's famous tunnels and retain both the historic eastern peristyle and the exterior walls.

After the unprovoked attack last week at Dodger Stadium that left a San Francisco Giants fan with brain damage, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck on Thursday announced a plan to significantly increase the number of police officers on patrol during games.
