BROWARD COUNTY PITCHES MADE ON PLANS FOR NEW ARENA

     The cities of Ft. Lauderdale and Sunrise, FL, made their
most detailed pitches to date yesterday about which plan is best
for a new arena for the Panthers and/or Heat, according to the
Ft. Lauderdale SUN SENTINEL.  Proposals were made at an
unannounced, unadvertised meeting with Broward County's newly-
hired financial advisor, Sam Katz of the Philadelphia-based
Stafford Sports Ventures.  Sunrise proposed a $166M project and,
for the first time, promised a $10M windfall to the county.  Ft.
Lauderdale proposed a $190M complex that includes a parking
garage, public transportation and urban redevelopment in eastern
Broward County.  Katz will analyze the proposals in an effort to
help the county meet Panthers Owner Wayne Huizenga's February 1
(David Nitkin, Ft. Lauderdale SUN-SENTINEL, 1/5).
