Ground was broken for the new CoreStates Center in Philadelphia on Wednesday. Mayor Ed Rendell recommended PA lottery money from sports betting to fund the project (Frank Lawlor, PHILA. INQUIRER, 9/15)....An Amway convention scheduled for the Kingdome October 14-16 has been canceled, costing King County $2-$4M (SEATTLE TIMES, 9/15). CORRECTION: Susan King of the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission in the Twin Cities was incorrectly quoted in the September 14 issue of THE DAILY. Thge quote should have read that the Metrodome is only publicly held stadium in the nation that is completely self-supporting and receives no tax dollars. We regret any confusion.
