MORE TAX PAYMENTS ON THE JETS FOR THE RESIDENTS OF WINNIPEG

     Winnipeg taxpayers are paying the interest on a $5-million
loan the owners of the Jets took out in '79.  The WINNIPEG SUN
reported yesterday that sources also said the team has not paid
back the $5M it received 16 years ago for as a franchise fee.
Annual interest payments by the team are reportedly over $660,000
(Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 1/9).
