GOVERNOR WARNS CLEVELAND THEY MAY LOOSE TEAM OVER FINANCING

     OH Gov. George Voinovich said Monday that if Cleveland Mayor
Michael White and the City Council "don't stop arguing over how
to pay for fixing up the Stadium, the city will find itself
without a football team and stuck with 'a hulk' that needs to be
torn down," according to the PLAIN  DEALER.  Voinovich "urged
Cleveland's leaders to get their act together -- before it is too
late."  Voinovich said leadership must come from Mayor White and
City Council President Jay Westbrook -- and urged the two to come
up with a mutual plan (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 6/13).  In an
analysis in Sunday's PLAIN DEALER, Stephen Koff writes that the
"distrustful" relationship between White and the City Council
"has the potential to hurt efforts to keep the Browns from
skipping town" (Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 6/11).
