QUESTION OF "WHO PAYS" HOLDS UP BREWERS' STADIUM PLANS

     As the WI Governor's Stadium Commission concludes its
business over the next three weeks, questions will have to be
answered regarding a new facility for the Brewers. Questions
remain how much the team will contribute to the $200M-plus
project, how much the public will pay, and where that public
money will come from.  But as Craig Gilbert writes in the
MILWAUKEE JOURNAL, "While the stadium project has apparently
evolved over time from a largely private one to a largely public
one, the implications of that have never been made explicit to
the public."  Brewers VP/General Counsel Wendy Selig-Prieb on
publicly-assisted financing of a new stadium: "I don't believe
the public will be surprised.  I think there is a much higher
sophistication of knowledge about the sports business than there
has ever been" (Craig Gilbert, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL, 1/8).
