MILWAUKEE POLL SHOWS FAITH REMAINS ON BREWERS PROJECT

     Despite the Brewers' recent troubles completing their share
of financing for a new stadium, Milwaukee County residents
continue to have faith the project will be completed, according
to a new MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL poll.  While respondents
"overwhelmingly favor" building on current stadium grounds rather
than a downtown site, 71% believe the new facility will get
built.  The plan is to build on the current site, but many
business and political leaders still prefer downtown.  Brewers
President Bud Selig "adamantly opposes" that idea.  On financing,
Brewers VP Laurel Prieb said the team continues to work toward
lining up a $50M loan before a noon Friday stadium board deadline
(Kenneth Lamke, MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 3/19).
