GOV. EDWARDS SAYS ZEPHYRS SOLD TO LOCAL GROUP

     LA Governor Edwin Edwards said an annoucement would be made
this week regarding the purchase of the Class AAA Zephyrs by a
"local group."  Edwards would not reveal the name of the buyers,
but New Orleans attorney Rob Couhig has been attempting to
purchase the team from current owner John Dikeou.  The two
reportedly met last week in Denver.  The Zephyrs are scheduled to
move into a $20M, 10,000 seat stadium to be built in Metairie in
time for the '96 season.  The team sale, for a "minor-league
record" $8.5M, reportedly has been on and off for months (Peter
Barrouquere, New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE, 1/21).
