SUPREME COURT REJECTS REDS' APPEAL ON OVERTIME PAY

     The U.S. Supreme Court rejected the Reds' argument that the
team legally is not required to pay overtime to cleaning and
maintenance employees.  The team had claimed exemption from the
federal Fair Labor Standards Act's time-and-a-half overtime
requirement citing the fact that they are a seasonal amusement or
entertainment operation.  The workers noted that they also worked
during the off-season, as the Reds operate Riverfront Stadium for
the Bengals.  The Reds employ 700 people during the MLB season,
and 120 during the off-season (AP/WASHINGTON POST, 3/19).
