GM'S SCHOTT THERAPY? IF MARGE SELLS CAR DEALERSHIP

          General Motors said it will drop its complaint against
     Reds Owner Marge Schott if her Chevrolet-GEO dealership is
     sold by February 20, according to Geoff Hobson of the
     CINCINNATI ENQUIRER.  A sale of the dealership is "imminent"
     to Joseph Auto Group, and GM is "expected" to approve the
     sale.  Meanwhile, the state of Ohio has "no plans" to pursue
     revoking Schott's dealership license despite GM's
     allegations she faked 57 car sales.  Jeffrey Coleman, chief
     of dealers licensing for the Ohio Motor Vehicle Dealers
     Board: "There is nothing in GM's motion or the accompanying
     affidavits which appears to constitute violations over which
     the Bureau has any jurisdiction."  Schott still faces a
     review by MLB, and one MLB owner told the ENQUIRER's Hobson
     that he "expected" the issue to be raised this week when the
     owners meet in Scottsdale, AZ (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/14).
