STADIUM NOTES

          In Minneapolis, Sid Hartman reports there "are strong
     indications that the state Legislature will not approve the
     $51 million St. Paul needs to remodel the Civic Center to
     get an NHL team.  If not, look for the Minneapolis City
     Counsel to come up with a new financial plan for the Target
     Center," to make room for the T'Wolves and a new NHL team to
     play there (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 3/2)....The STAR
     TRIBUNE's Jay Weiner examines the Twins' ballpark deal with
     the state owning 49% of the team: "Aside from the
     philosophical arguments are the complex financial questions
     about whether such an arrangement is a good investment.  The
     answers have much to do with the future appreciation of
     baseball teams" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 3/1)....The MLB
     Giants have asked permission to increase prices this season
     on about 20% on food and drinks at Candlestick Park. S.F.'s
     Recreation and Park Commission "must consider the request --
     made by the Giants on behalf of its concessionaire, Volume
     Services.  Under city policy, the request must be granted as
     long as it is 'reasonable'" (S.F. EXAMINER, 3/1).
