  • NORTHERN VIRGINIA NARROWS SEARCH FOR BASEBALL STADIUM SITE

         In an effort to narrow the number of stadium sites down to
    two or three, Fairfax County's Stadium Site Selection Task Force
    eliminated seven proposed sites, leaving six yet to be decided
    on.  Sites that were eliminated include two in the western part
    of VA and two in the Tysons Corner (suburban DC) area.  Criteria
    for choosing a stadium site include transportation,
    environmental, neighborhood, historic, and economic impacts
    (WASHINGTON TIMES, 1/4).

  • STADIUM NEWS & NOTES: MORE HOLIDAY LEFTOVERS

         In Dallas last week, Mavericks owner Don Carter toured a
    proposed arena site in Lewisville and called it a "heck of a good
    alternative" to downtown Dallas.  Carter, who was joined by Mavs
    coach Dick Motta as well as other city and county officials, said
    that although he was looking at the new site, he wasn't "giving
    up" on a new arena in Dallas (Kim North, DALLAS MORNING NEWS,
    12/29)....According to reports last week in New Orleans, Saints
    owner Tom Benson says that the city could lose Super Bowl XXXI if
    $20.5M in renovations to the Superdome are not started early this
    year.  Benson:  "If we don't get started by April, we can't have
    the Superdome ready for the Super Bowl in 1997.  That is our
    commitment to the NFL.  We could work on temporary seating to
    keep the game, but that isn't part of the commitment that Gov.
    Edwards and I made to the NFL" (Brian Allee-Walsh, New Orleans
    TIMES-PICAYUNE, 12/29).
