LIGHTNING CAN STRIKE ON NEW ARENA
Published October 5, 1994
The Lightning "can begin building a downtown hockey arena" after the team gave the city of Tampa a check of $95,610 for a foundation permit. Lightning Governor David LeFevre said the team "probably won't make its stated goal of opening the arena" in October '95, and the team's architects, Ellerbe Becket of Kansas City, said construction would take 15-17 months. Officials at the ThunderDome in St. Petersburg have said they will help the team book games there in '95 if the team needs a place to play until the Tampa arena is completed (Ken Koehn, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 10/04).
