GIMME SHELTER: STADIUM NOTES

     The UConn Senate voted 29-21 to reject a proposal to upgrade
the school's football program to Division 1-A.  Recently, there
has been speculation that if the football program makes the
upgrade, the state would build a stadium in Hartford (HARTFORD
COURANT, 10/26)....Cleveland officials said that the city might
take a "financial hit" because fewer people than expected are
parking at the new city-financed Gateway garages.  The officials
said that the baseball strike has affected the parking (CLEVELAND
PLAIN DEALER, 10/25). ....When asked by the DETROIT NEWS if they
would support public funding of a new Tiger Stadium, incumbent
Governor John Engler (R-MI) and challenger Howard Wolpe (D) both
said while they don't necessarily support the use of public
dollars to build a stadium, they do believe the state could assist
with infrastructure development -- such as building roads and
acquiring land (DETROIT NEWS, 10/25).
