Also on the Raleigh Neurology bandwagon. They have really helped me with severe migraines (like there's any other kind?) since the TBI I had in 2007. I'm almost back to normal (not that I was ever there in the first place) and headaches don't control my life anymore.

For contractor, I would talk to real estate agents in the area or the county permitting office. They should know who's good and who isn't. Don't expect to be in a hurry when you find a good one. They probably aren't a secret and likely have a waiting list.

LA Sports Arena I believe was torn down around 5 years ago? The Forum has been converted into a mostly concert arena now, and its a 'A' list concert venue, many top artists will schedule the Forum.

Clippers owner Ballmer bought the forum for $400 mil but it looks like he's tearing it down for the new arena. 400 m pocket change to him. I guess he can get concerts at the new place. New place is Intuit Dome

It opens another revenue stream for Ballmer, assuming he can book ancillary events at Intuit Dome. At Staples Center, he’s paying rent to AEG, which I’m sure he’s thrilled with.

Per Sportico, no decision has been made yet about the fate of the Forum. With that said, I'd be shocked if they don't tear it down.

If they do, they need to put the remains with Chick Hearn’s. His voice was synonymous with the Fabulous Forum.

Fwiw, Michael Cooper was my favorite NBA player from the late 70s to early 80s. Great defender in an era where that was a rarity, and could absolutely levitate. Chick had some great calls featuring his play.

They shouldn't have any problems booking non-sports events at the new Intuit Dome. The Forum is a dump and they were booking all kinds of stuff pre-pandemic. With 3 sports teams and being located in LA, Staples was the second busiest arena in the US behind MSG. LA is plenty big enough for 2 major indoor venues.
