Shockwaves were sent around Sacramento Friday afternoon after the Fair Political Practices Commission -- the state's political watchdog agency -- announced that Chris Hansen was the person behind a group opposed to building a new downtown arena. The FPPC revealed Hansen -- who of course lost a very hard battle to move the Sacramento Kings to Seattle -- provided $100,000 to pay for signature gatherers to try to get an initiative on the ballot that would have the public decide whether a new arena should be built.
Many sports writers are saying Hansen shot himself in the foot and lost a very real chance of bringing an NBA expansion team to Seattle. Joining us is Dave Grosby - the Groz -- who hosts a sports talk show on 710 ESPN in Seattle and is a former KFBKer.
Congressman John Garamendi outlined his critique of Gov. Jerry Brown's Bay Delta Conversation Plan today -- commonly known as the twin tunnels.
The congressman, who served as Deputy Interior Secretary for President Bill Clinton -- is offering an alternative plan he's proposing that would secure the water needs of all Californians. Another thing, Garamendi has been a Delta resident for 40 years so he's quite familiar with the region.

Joining us live from San Diego is CBS radio news correspondent Steve Futterman.
It's an annual but important tradition, top officials meeting for the Lake Tahoe annual summit. They get briefed on the state of the much-loved alpine lake and also what is being done to protect its clarity and shield the Tahoe Basin from destructive wildfires. In 2007, the Angora fire destroyed 254 homes and many were worried the widespread fire would affect Tahoe's environment.
News 10 political editor John Myers was in Lake Tahoe for the summit. He joins Mike Simpson now.
The back-to-school season is an exciting time, but it can also cause anxiety for some children -- and parents too!
