CLEVELAND'S WHITE SAYS PRICE MAY GO UP; BUT ONLY FOR BROWNS

          In his first public comments on the new Browns stadium
     "in four months," Cleveland Mayor Michael White "seemed to
     acknowledge that cost overruns on the publicly financed
     stadium project appear likely," according to David Adams of
     the AKRON BEACON JOURNAL.  White: "Is there a possibility
     that we have to develop strategies to deal with an overrun? 
     Yes there is. ... Do we know today how large that overrun
     will be or what the source of the fix will be?  No, we
     don't."  After rejecting the lowest bid for the stadium's
     electrical work late last year, which was $9M more "than
     expected," White "seemed to indicate that the new round of
     electrical bids -- starting next month -- may not fare much
     better" (David Adams, AKRON BEACON JOURNAL, 1/22).
