  • DESPITE DISPUTE, COUNTY TO ISSUE BONDS FOR BENGALS STADIUM

              In a "sign of confidence" over the Bengals' stadium
         deal, the Hamilton County commissioners Monday "tentatively
         approved" a $73M bond issuance to help fund the new
         riverfront facility, according to Barry Horstman of the
         CINCINNATI POST.  The commissioners authorized a team of
         seven bond underwriting firms to proceed with plans to begin
         selling the bonds next week as the first installment toward
         the $400M-plus football stadium project.  Horstman wrote,
         however, that "the commissioners' action -- a scaled back
         version of an initial" $323M bond plan -- "reveals caution
         and concerns related to the slim possibility that the
         stadium deal could collapse" (CINCINNATI POST, 1/6).
