SOLDIER FIELD REINCARNATED?
Published January 3, 1996
A week after Chicago Bears President Michael McCaskey declared "Soldier Field is dead," the club has apparently contacted City Hall about the city's plan to refurbish the 71- year-old stadium. Such contact prompted IL Gov. Jim Edgar to take plans for a new dome off the table in hopes it would not be used as leverage by the Bears to get a better deal from the city (Rick Pearson, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 12/29). Meanwhile in Gary, IN, newly elected Mayor Scott King continues to lobby hard for the passage of a half percent income tax to lure the Bears across the state line (Ellen Christian, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 1/3).
