EDITORIAL CALLS ON STADIUM SUMMIT IN CINCINNATI
Published December 6, 1994
The CINCINNATI ENQUIRER calls for a "time-out" in the heated race for new stadiums by the Reds and Bengals. Both Reds CEO Marge Schott and Bengals Owner Mike Brown have fought with the city over new stadiums. The paper sees "an important long term business decision is being complicated by short-term personal issues." On Brown's idea for tax increased to pay for a facility, the ENQUIRER writes: "Being hit with higher taxes would be easier to swallow if not for the baseball strike and a dismal Bengals season. But no matter now public money is raised, many taxpayers will feel mugged." The paper calls for a "regional summit" to get Brown and Schott together with community leaders (12/6).
