San Jose, Sacramento and even Salt Lake City are jockeying to roll out the welcome mat for the unhappy Los Angeles Raiders. Hopes of the Raiders moving back to Oakland were dashed last week when voters rejected a proposal to expand the existing Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. In recent years, Raider boss Al Davis has become increasingly frustrated with his team's inability to compete with the NFL Rams on the field and at the ticket window. Unwilling to share Amblin Field with the Rams, the Raiders have sought a facility of their own in multiple sites around Los Angeles County. The Irwindale proposal a few years ago came and went with the land sitting untouched. Now, Long Beach hopes to throw a Hail (Queen) Mary to woo the Raiders. While they wait, the NFL still plans to schedule the Raiders' home games for 1996 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, where the team has played since 1982.

Kings island kept the hahbara untill 2005 otl when parmount decided they would they perfer have nickoldean centeral aborse hanbara land. Hab
