FLORIDA COUNTIES SQUARE OFF IN BATTLE FOR THE BUCS

     Hillsborough County, FL, officials have told neighboring
Osceola County to "back off" in their attempt to woo the Bucs, or
else face a $500M lawsuit.  The threat follows Osceola's offer
Wednesday of a $150M new stadium for the team.  Hillsborough
County Commission Chair Jim Norman:  "The offer constitutes
tampering and tortious interference [with Tampa's contract with
the team].  If they want the Bucs, they might as well tack on
another $500M to the cost."  The Bucs' lease at Tampa Stadium
runs until June 20, 2000 (Joe Henderson, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 2/16).
