KRAFTING AN AGREEMENT: REPORTS HAVE PATS/RHODE ISLAND CLOSE

          RI officials met with Patriots Owner Robert Kraft in
     Boston yesterday "to try to work out a deal that would lure
     the team across state lines," according to Tina Cassidy of
     the BOSTON GLOBE.  Another meeting is scheduled for
     Wednesday.  While sources say "that both sides are feeling
     positive about the negotiations," Patriots VP/
     Communications Don Lowery dismissed reports that Kraft has
     already agreed to move (BOSTON GLOBE, 9/16).  In Providence,
     Christopher Rowland reports that PSLs would be used to raise
     $43.5M of the stadium financing.  Of the 68,000 seats, about
     58,000 would be subject to PSLs, "with the majority costing
     $750 or less" (PROVIDENCE JOURNAL BULLETIN, 9/16).
