  • POLLIN'S DOWNTOWN ARENA SITE TO GET ENVIRONMENTAL STUDY

         "Concerns over parking and the proposed closing of G Street"
    have led DC officials to order an in-depth environmental study of
    the proposed site for Bullats & Caps Owner Abe Pollin's new
    arena, according to the WASHINGTON TIMES.  Pollin has reportedly
    agreed to the study.  The statement is said to take four to six
    weeks to complete, and according to DC Corporation Counsel Claude
    Bailey, the study "shouldn't delay" the targeted October ground-
    breaking (Lorraine Woellert, WASHINGTON TIMES, 5/13).

  • TALK GETS TOUGH IN LIONS STADIUM NEGOTIATIONS

         "Talk is getting tough and the opportunities for compromise
    are growing slim" as the Lions and the the city of Pontiac
    bargain over an extension of the team's lease.  Pontiac City
    Council President Adrian Spinks:  "I don't think either side has
    a lot of wiggle room and consequently you get to a point where
    there's not much room for improvement.  Both sides "remain
    optimistic," however, that a deal can be reached that gives the
    lions a share of the stadium revenue (AP/N.Y. TIMES, 5/15).
