  • FOUR-COUNTY SALES TAX MAY FINANCE MILWAUKEE STADIUM

         A four-county sales tax gained support from state
    legislators Thursday as an option for paying for a new stadium
    for the Brewers, according to the MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL.  WI
    state official James Klauser told legislators that by adding
    Washington and Ozaukee counties to the areas for a one-tenth-of-
    a-cent sales tax increase, it would end the need for the hotel-
    motel surtax in Waukesha and Milwaukee counties.  This proposal
    was presented on the third day of four public hearings on the
    proposed new stadium (Steven Walters, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL,
    9/8).
         TWINS LIKE WHAT THEY SEE:  Sid Hartman writes from the Twin
    Cities that Twins VP Jerry Bell thinks Owner Carl Pohlad would be
    willing to invest money under the same "circumstances" as
    Milwaukee to get a new retractable roof stadium for the Twins
    (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 9/5).

  • SAN FRANCISCO COMMISSIONERS APPROVE CANDLESTICK NAME CHANGE

         Despite a last-minute "nibble" from Apple Computers, S.F.
    Recreation and Parks Commissioners took "only minutes" to approve
    a deal selling the naming rights to Candlestick Park to 3Com,
    according to the SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE.  As "3Com Park" signs
    go up at the stadium today, the deal gives the city $500,000 for
    the first year, and an additional $3.5M if the deal is extended
    until the year 2000 (Steve Rubenstein, S.F. CHRONICLE, 9/8).
    Herb Caen noted in the CHRONICLE: "Come to think of it, 3Com may
    be appropriate for the Giants' powerful box office draw.  Judging
    by what I glimpsed on the tube, only 3Com to the 'Stick for
    Tuesday night's game" (SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE, 9/8).
