MIAMI CONSIDERS DEMOLITION OF ORANGE BOWL

     The decision to move the Orange Bowl football game to Joe
Robbie Stadium after 1996 has many debating the future of the
Orange Bowl stadium.  One possibility that is gaining support is
demolition.  But others have proposed renovating the stadium to
keep the University of Miami as a tenant and to attract another
bowl game.  Estimates of a major new overhaul -- including more
than 10,000 new seats, 40 luxury suites, a new press box and
security fencing -- run as high as $30M.  Other possibilities
under consideration:  turn the Orange Bowl into an open casino in
th event FL voters approve statewide gambling; or host a seasonal
basketball tournament, a national auto show, a circus and other
big-draw events (Joanne Cavanaugh, MIAMI HERALD, 10/14).
