    LAS VEGAS -- Developers who want to build a domed stadium for the Oakland Raiders in Las Vegas vowed to zero in on two potential sites within the next month as they face a tight timeline to lock in a real estate deal, government approvals and the NFLs blessing.Representatives from Majestic Realty and the Las Vegas Sands casino company told an oversight committee Thursday that they want to get their plan in order by January, when NFL owners who must approve any team relocation by a three-quarters vote are scheduled to meet.I think the hardest part will be getting to the finish line on the land, said Sands President Rob Goldstein.

They narrowed a list of nine potential sites to four priority locations within the past two weeks.Those include the Bali Hai Golf Club and the UNLV campus near McCarran International Airport, the Wild Wild West casino and a site just to the west of Interstate 15 where the highway runs parallel to the Las Vegas Strip. Developers want to place the stadium as close as possible to the Strip and secure at least 60 acres for their project, if not 100.Proponents must clear several government hurdles to build the proposed 65,000-seat stadium. They need approval from the Nevada Legislature to raise the hotel tax, and need the Federal Aviation Administration to ensure a tall stadium doesnt interfere with plane traffic at the airport, which is close to the Strip.Developers expect there will still be loose ends when they present their two favorite options to the oversight panel, the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee.I just caution, by August 25, we wont know much from the FAA, said Craig Cavileer of Majestic Realty.Las Vegas had long been passed over by major professional sports leagues uncomfortable with the citys robust gambling industry.

LOUIS -- St. Louis Cardinals cleared pitcher Chris Carpenter to resume rehabbing from a lower back injury on Friday after the team got outside medical opinions about his comeback from nerve issues. General manager John Mozeliak said the 38-year-old Carpenter played catch Friday and was scheduled for a light bullpen session Saturday. How the former NL Cy Young winner responds to that activity will determine a course of action. Carpenters back tightened after a bullpen session and weight work on Sunday. "It looks like its not going to be that big of a deal," Mozeliak said. "Obviously, this weeks come and gone. Having said that, he can jump back on and start making progress." Mozeliak said the back problem slowed Carpenters rehab from ann injury that caused numbness and tingling on the right side of his body.dddddddddddd. He didnt believe it was a major setback, although the team still is not counting on a contribution from Carpenter, and declined to provide a timetable. "I just think thats a dangerous thing to answer," Mozelilak said. "The moment we start getting out in front of that something may occur, so its just better to sort of take this day by day." Carpenter was a 21-game winner in his 2005 NL Cy Young season and was second after going 17-4 with a 2.24 ERA in 2009. In his career, he has missed most or all of five seasons due to shoulder, elbow and nerve injuries, and pitched sparingly last season after radical surgery to relieve nerve compression.
