A poll has found that most of San Francisco's voters oppose changing the name of Candlestick Park to 3Com Park. In a survey of 500 likely voters, 57% opposed the name change, with 46% expressing strong disapproval. There is ballot question on the stadium name change. The question was merely added to a poll on the city's upcoming election. The poll has a margin of error of +/- 5% (AP/N.Y. TIMES, 9/26)....In an editorial on the circumvention of election laws, the MIAMI HERALD notes that a group opposing the incorporation of the area around Joe Robbie Stadium as the city of Destiny received $100,000 from JRS/Dolphins Owner Wayne Huizenga. The donation, however, was not reported until after the September 19 vote (MIAMI HERALD, 9/25).
