On the ABC 15 website today, they have a story on the Glendale court panel hearing the appeal of the salex tax initiative. The following story caught my eye, but not as much as the accompanying picture. Of Taylor Pyatt. Now of the New York Rangers. Perhaps you need a sports editor for the website to help identify who currently plays for the team. I’m looking forward to the Cedric Ceballos story on the Suns page tomorrow.
The last sentence is something from Peter King. “A big chunck of the money…”

PHOENIX – A decision is expected today that could determine the future of the Phoenix Coyotes.
The Arizona Court of Appeals heard arguments on Thursday about a Glendale sales tax measure that plays a role in the city’s arena deal for the hockey team, according to the Phoenix Business Journal .
Judges heard from attorneys for the city of Glendale and from an anti-tax group called Save Glendale Now.
The measure, which would repeal the tax if passed, was kept off the ballot by the Glendale city clerk over “misleading” language.
The appeal court must decide if that decision was justified.
A big chunk of the money from that tax goes toward funding a lease with Jobing.com arena.
