              Talks between Cincinnati and Hamilton County over its
         riverfront development "went into a tailspin" Thursday,
         "calling into question again whether the Bengals' $400.3
         million stadium complex will be built," according to May &
         Wilkinson of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER.  Cincinnati City
         Manager John Shirey "gave city council members what appeared
         to be a city-county deal Thursday morning."  But county
         leaders then said they "never agreed to the document." 
         Bengals President Mike Brown has said if the city and county
         don't reach a deal by Saturday, January 31, he will walk
         away from the stadium deal (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/23).
