GIMME SHELTER: STADIUM AND ARENA NOTES

     Jackson County Sports Complex Authority has agreed to pay
Cleveland's S.W. Franks Construction Co. close to $2M to install
natural grass, a new warning track, and fences in Royals'
Kauffman Stadium (K.C. STAR, 9/9)....The San Francisco Recreation
and Park Commission will decide on the new lease with the Giants
at Candlestick Park.  Giants VP Larry Baer said the pact would
extend the lease by five years and eliminate a clause requiring
the city to pay for the team's defense if sued for leaving
Candlestick Park (S.F. CHRONICLE, 9/9). ....IHL Knights President
and co-owner Richard Adler announced that funding is set for a
new $120M, 22,000 seat arena and 20,000 seat amphitheater in
Alpharetta outside Atlanta.  Hawks Exec VP Lee Douglas said
Adler's plans don't affect Turner Broadcasting's efforts to build
a new arena in Atlanta as a way of luring an NHL franchise
(ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 9/10).
