    <blockquote>By Steve Scholfield

    Having a new Qualcomm Stadium that would keep the Chargers in San Diego without raising taxes or costing the public a penny might seem like a pipe dream.

    But for financier Mike Markie, a Vista resident, the idea is simple and doable.

    Markie, vice president of Sunrise Bank of San Diego, has spent two years putting together a development team that will make an offer to the city to buy the Qualcomm Stadium site in Mission Valley, develop the property and build a stadium, all without the use of any public funds.</blockquote>

    Markie says he has the backing of one financial institution that will loan his group about $200 million to purchase the land from the cash-strapped city.</blockquote>
