CLEVELAND LEGISLATOR CALLS FOR NEW STADIUM

     Patrick Sweeney, a member of the Ohio Sports Facilities Task
Force, says "if he had his druthers" he would replace Cleveland
Stadium instead of renovating it.  Sweeney, a Cleveland state
Rep. says a new stadium would create more economic development
than a renovated one.  Sweeney pointed out the economic benefits
that came from Gateway Economic Development Corp.'s Jacobs Field
and Gund Arena.  Cleveland's Mayor Michael White has recommended
the stadium be renovated.  It is estimated a new stadium would
cost $220M, while a renovation job would only be $130M (Thomas
Suddes, Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 3/16).
