Ruth Mayer explains how she attributes her heartbreak, her rage, and even her unkindness toward others to the election of Donald Trump. It was the last way I expected to feel.

“It was a pretty good run,” Corning said. “First trick wasn’t that good, but [I] had all the tricks that were needed. I’m not really sure what happened [with the judging].

Another $187 million would be raised by selling personal seat licenses.While the financing package does not envision tax increases, both government officials and the Chargers have called for a public vote to ratify their plans, should the two sides reach agreement for the team to stay in San Diego.Recently, the NFL has termed such a vote an “uncertainty” that dims the city’s prospects for keeping the team after 55 years.In a six page letter to a committee of team owners handling the NFL’s return to Los Angeles after a 20 year plus absence, the mayor and county Supervisor Ron Roberts said they need the Chargers to re engage in negotiations over a term sheet for building a new stadium.”Yet they steadfastly refuse to work in good faith with this mayoral administration, City Council and county Board of Supervisors,” Faulconer and Roberts wrote. “In fact, the more San Diego has done, the less engaged the Chargers have become.”They emphasized that San Diego was a market distinct from its larger neighbor to the north, and was enjoying a strengthening economy.The mayor and supervisor also said the Chargers have less competition from professional sports franchises in San Diego than they would in Los Angeles.Chargers special counsel Mark Fabiani released a one sentence statement on the plan.”The proposal does not contain anything new, and so the team has nothing new to add to what has already been said about the proposal,” Fabiani said.The 41 page presentation includes the letter, details on the viability of San Diego as a market, progress made in developing a stadium, Mission Valley’s strong points as a location, a financing plan and reasons why a vote is necessary.The report includes survey results showing that San Diegans would support a stadium project by 51 percent to 41 percent, with the “no” vote decreasing to 13 percent when respondents were told it wouldn’t include new taxes.Officials in St. Louis on Monday transmitted a detailed proposal for a new stadium to the NFL in a bid to keep the Rams.
