  • MASSACHUSETTS LEADERS SCHEDULE MEGAPLEX MEETING FOR MONDAY

         MA state and Boston local officials will meet Monday in an
    effort to make a decision on whether to move forward with a
    convention center project, with or without a domed stadium as
    part of a megaplex.  MA House Speaker Charles Flaherty organized
    the summit and "hopes the meeting will result in  a decision to
    move the project forward": "The thrust of the meeting is just to
    get everyone to say: Are we going to do a megaplex? ... If so,
    these are the conditions we're going to do it under.  If not,
    we'll do a convention center."  Flaherty believes a breakthrough
    is possible because this is the first time "key elected leaders"
    will address the issue as a group (Richard Kindleberger, BOSTON
    GLOBE, 1/19).  Representatives of the Patriots and Red Sox were
    not invited to the meeting.  Flaherty: "I'm well aware of their
    needs and druthers" (Phil Primack, BOSTON HERALD, 1/19).
         GOODBYE FENWAY?  Red Sox GM Dan Duquette said Wednesday his
    team must move into a new facility "within the next decade."
    Duquette told the Boston Chamber of Commerce that he'd like to
    build a facility similar to Camden Yards  (Mike Shalin, BOSTON
    HERALD, 1/19).
