FACILITY NOTES

          An editorial in today's BOSTON GLOBE states that MA
     Acting Gov. Paul Cellucci has "presented a rational economic
     case for helping the Patriots renovate" Foxboro Stadium, but
     that MA House Speaker Thomas Finneran's "demands are
     beginning to look like an effort to make [Patriots Owner
     Robert] Kraft an offer he can't accept" (BOSTON GLOBE,
     10/9)....In Baltimore, Jon Morgan writes how added revenues
     streams from new ballparks affect a team's on-the-field
     success.  For example, he notes that at Oriole Park at
     Camden Yards, concession sales at "now routinely top"
     $500,000, and could hit $750,000 for tonight's ALCS game
     (Baltimore SUN, 10/9)....The family of Daniel Weber, who was
     electrocuted nearly a year ago at Bank One Ballpark, is
     suing contractors Perini Building Co. and Huber Hunt &
     Nichols, as well as the Maricopa County (AZ) Stadium
     District (ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 10/8).
