CINCINNATI SPORTS COMPLEX WOULD BE MOST EXPENSIVE EVER

     Comparing Hamilton County's $544.2M proposal to build
neighboring stadiums for the Bengals and Reds with other stadiums
completed in the last 25 years, the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER's Richard
Green concludes Cincinnati's would be the "most expensive sports
complex ever built."  The county's plan relies on $304.8M in
taxpayer dollars, which would be obtained if voters approve a one
half-cent sales tax increase March 19, $130.4M from the
teams/private sources, and $109M from the state.  The only other
football-baseball expansive project, K.C.'s Harry S. Truman
Sports Complex, was built for $43M in '72 (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER,
2/27).
