     Wednesday night to preliminary plans "to overhaul the Civic
     Center" to attract an NHL team (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE,

     about the Yankees' charitable donations, noting that they
     went from $240,000 in '95 to $150,000 in '96.  Dwyer: "No
     one says the Yankees have to give a dime to charity.  But
     you don't go cheap the year they call you a champion.  It's
     another part of the prize that comes with winning" (N.Y.
     DAILY NEWS, 1/9)....In New York, Mark Kriegel looks at the

     "City Slow To Embrace Ice Age, Even With Gretzky."  Kriegel:

     the buzz beyond the building.  The columnists who heralded
     the Great Gretzky's arrival haven't made the time to catch a
     game" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 1/9)....NFL Oilers' RB Eddie George,
     on lack of attendance at home games affecting the team's
     playoff chances: "We had the best road record in the NFL.

     think we could have made it" ("Up Close," ESPN, 1/8).
