"We're on the one-yard line, and there's a long ways to go before anything's completed."
-- Carl Gerlach, mayor of Overland Park, Kan., referring to
his own one-yard line and using a football analogy after the Overland Park city council met last night to discuss having a public hearing on using sales tax and revenue bonds to help finance the
construction of a soccer complex that would be the home of MLS's Kansas City Wizards. Overland Park has jumped ahead of other Kansas cities Olathe, De Soto and Gardner in the bid to land the
Wizards, who have no long-term future in Arrowhead Stadium. (Olathe News)
