EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF TARGET CENTER DANA WARG PROFILED

     DANA WARG, Executive Director of the Target Center and VP of
Ogden Entertainment Services, is the focus of an extensive piece
in the Minneapolis STAR- TRIBUNE.  Warg, 47, is "quick on his
feet.  Fluent in the language of the facilities biz, of which he
had been a player for a quarter of a century."  But Warg's
"patience with the political process is limited" and is "first
and foremost," interested in seeing the Target Center and Ogden
profit.  He is also a key figure in bringing the NHL back to the
Twin Cities; he met with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman on
Thursday where he "got good vibes, but no assurances" (Jay
Weiner, Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 4/10).  Warg is working on
securing an ATP women's tournament for the Target Center next
spring, and will attend the Arena Football League opener in
Phoenix on May 15.  The Target center is a possible site for one
of four expansion AFL teams next season (STAR-TRIBUNE, 4/9).
