REDSKINS STADIUM PROPONENTS CALL THE OLD END-AROUND PLAY

     A new Republican Anne Arundel County Council could mean a
panel that is "pro-development and likely favorable" to a new
Redskins stadium, but they could also "remain neutral and leave
the matter up to the Board of Appeals" (Matt Neufield, WASHINGTON
TIMES, 11/11).  Anne Arundel business leaders are drafting a plan
for the stadium proposal, "skirting a lengthy zoning appeals
process and going straight to" the new council.  The Anne Arundel
Trade Council, headed by Annapolis National Bank President and
CEO Richard Morgan, will "likely" present the plan to County
Executive-elect John Gary.  Gary's advisers say he "would
consider a stadium proposal if it addressed" objections cited by
a county official who rejected the original plan over traffic and
environmental impact concerns.  Citizens Against The Stadium II
President Jeanne Mignon has "nothing but contempt" for the
strategy and said the group would dispute it (Justin Blum,
WASHINGTON POST, 11/12).
