MINNEAPOLIS - Adding bird-safe glass to the Minnesota Vikings new stadium could add as much as $60 million in extra costs and delay construction by six months, the chairwoman of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority said Friday. Ben McLemore Jersey .Chairwoman Michele Kelm-Helgen gave the estimate in response to complaints that the clear glass planned for the $1 billion downtown Minneapolis stadium would pose a threat to migratory birds, Minnesota Public Radio News (http://bit.ly/1ysOBLI) reported.If you look at Mortenson (Construction), their subcontractors, all of our consultants and staff that are working on this project —and youre extending the whole project from two to six months — youre looking at costs that would be anywhere from $25 (million) to $60 million and potentially higher, Kelm-Helgen said.Kelm-Helgen said Viracon, the stadiums Owatonna-based glass maker, has said changing the glass order to substitute etched or fritted glass would take as much as 23 extra weeks, possibly keep the Vikings in TCF Bank Stadium at the University of Minnesota for an additional season, and divert other events. She said that could affect the rent the Vikings would pay to the stadium authority.So that $10 million might conceivably not come in, Kelm-Helgen said.Kelm-Helgen repeated that stadium construction would proceed as planned. The Vikings are set to play in their new stadium with an inaugural preseason in mid-August 2016. The new stadium will host the 2018 Super Bowl.She also offered more detail on the plans to test a number of film coatings produced by Maplewood-based 3M Co. that might make the glass safer for birds. The University of Minnesota will help monitor the tests. But the authority has made no firm commitment to use the films.Bird advocates have been citing a smaller figure, about $1 million, as the added cost for fritted glass.But stadium officials say that doesnt account for potential lost revenue, such as Vikings game rent, or possible legal action by contractors seeking compensation for indirect costs of lost business due to schedule changes.Im not sure I believe that, said Lisa Venable of Minnesota Citizens for the Protection of Migratory Birds. She said shed like to see proof.___Information from: Minnesota Public Radio News, http://www.mprnews.org Lorenzen Wright Jersey . The White Sox said Wednesday they acquired left-handed pitching prospect Sean Bierman and infielder Ben Kline, who both played at Class A this season. The White Sox dealt Crain to Tampa Bay on July 29. Zach Randolph Jersey . 3 seed Phillip Kohlschreiber from Germany. Defending champion Marin Cilic also reached the semifinals -- his fourth in Zagreb -- defeating fellow Croat Ivan Dodig. German qualifier Bjorn Phau beat Dudi Sela of Israel to reach his first semifinals in nearly five years. http://www.thegrizzliesofficial.com/Auth...es-Jersey/ . He scored two highlight-reel goals in a three-minute span -- the second on a sideways bicycle kick in the 78th minute -- to give the Whitecaps a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers before a crowd of 20,303 at B. Derek Fisher has agreed to become the next coach of the New York Knicks and will be introduced at a news conference Tuesday morning, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The Knicks did not confirm the hiring, other than saying they were planning a "major announcement." The person who confirmed the deal to AP spoke on condition of anonymity because neither side authorized the public disclosure of any information related to the deal. The 39-year-old Fisher just completed his 18th season, finishing his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He played under Knicks President Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers, and helped that franchise win five NBA titles. Fisher would have been an unrestricted free agent this summer, though it was widely known that this season would be his last as a player. And once the Knicks failed to close a deal with Steve Kerr -- who wound up accepting an offer from Golden State -- Fisher was believed to be the next target on Jacksons list. Jackson was fined $25,000 for the league last week for a tampering violation involving Fisher. He was still under contract with the Thunder when Jackson told New York reporters that Fisher was "on my list off guys that could be very good candidates" to replace Mike Woodson on the Knicks sideline. Shareef Abdur-Rahim Jersey. Fisher surely could still play. He has just suspected for a while that his time has come to do something else. "Coaching allows for you to positively impact other peoples lives," Fisher told reporters during his exit interview after Oklahoma Citys season ended. "To help a group of people find success, whether they have or havent before, youre all working together for a common goal." Fishers hiring means that next season, both teams in New York will have former point guards barely removed from playing days at the helms. It worked for the Brooklyn Nets, who made the Eastern Conference semifinals this season with first-year coach Jason Kidd, and now the Knicks will hope that Fisher can have the same success. His hiring is the first significant step in whats expected to be a broad makeover of the team by Jackson, who was hired late in the regular season to turn around the fortunes of a franchise that has won just one playoff series in the past 14 years. Over that 14-year span, the Knicks have won a mere 10 playoff games. Fisher played in 134 playoff wins during that stretch.
