BUCS VOTE IS ON, BUT ARE THERE NEW LEASE PROBLEMS?

     Hillsborough Circuit Court Judge James Whittemore ruled a
lawsuit by former Tampa Mayor William Poe Sr. to block a half-
cent tax from going on the September 3 ballot was "without
merit," according to Joe Henderson of the TAMPA TRIBUNE.  Voters
will vote on the half-cent sales tax increase, designed to help
fund a new Bucs stadium (TAMPA TRIBUNE, 8/27).  The Yankees, who
use land adjacent to Houlihan's Stadium for parking at Legends
Field during spring games, have objected to some of that land
being promised to Bucs Owner Malcolm Glazer for commercial
development if a new facility is built.  The question of who
controls the land is becoming "increasingly contentious," and
could be a "roadblock" to finishing a lease on the stadium (TAMPA
TRIBUNE, 8/27).
