NAMING RIGHTS FOR BREWERS STADIUM? NO TALKS SCHEDULED

     Contrary to reports out of Wisconsin yesterday, officials
from the state and Miller Brewing said that they have "no talks
scheduled" over the company's possible interest in buying naming
rights to a new stadium.  Miller spokesperson Mike Brophy said
"any discussions on that issue may await the conclusion of
negotiations between the club and public officials over financing
a new stadium" (Craig Gilbert, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 7/25).
     MAYOR CLAIMS BREWERS HAVE THE BALL:  The two sides in
Milwaukee's stadium talks "continued to differ" yesterday in
their portrayal of negotiations.  Milwaukee Mayor John Norquist:
"We've worked hard to give the Brewers what they want, where they
want it, and to find a way to pay for it that would make the
Brewers a financially healthy Milwaukee team."  In contrast, team
officials have "balked" at the suggestion that a "nod" from them
is all that's preventing a deal (Craig Gilbert, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL
SENTINEL, 7/25).
