JETS SEARCHING FOR A PLACE TO LAND: HOW ABOUT ST. PAUL?
Published November 20, 1995
St. Paul Mayor Norm Coleman and MN Gov. Arne Carlson agreed Friday to present a plan to Jets buyer Richard Burke by December 1, two weeks before an NHL deadline to know where the team will play next season, according to the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Jay Weiner and Anthony Lonetree note the Legislature would have to approve any bonds to help refurbish the St. Paul Civic Center, and, according to St. Paul City Council member Dino Guerin, the city's offer would include the construction of 30 luxury suites. Burke said he was willing to work within the December 1 time frame, but added, "It's not one of those situations that you want to have people get overly optimistic about. The situation is daunting" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 11/18). Sid Hartman writes Timberwolves Owner Glen Taylor denies he is trying to sabotage Burke's efforts to bring the Jets to MN. Taylor called a comment he made earlier in the week about owning an NHL team "theoretical" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 11/19).
