Public haggling over private meetings by the Coliseum Commission

This morning on KPCC's "Airtalk with Larry Mantle," fellow Coliseum commissioners City Councilman Bernard Parks and county Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky pointedly disagreed with each other over the panel's closed-door negotiations with USC to take over the historic stadium. It threatened to get fun when Yaroslavsky brought up the money that Parks allegedly still owes for July 4 fireworks shows in the Coliseum. Parks denies owing anything.
