FACILITY NOTES

          Acting MA Gov. Paul Cellucci "is close to reaching a
     compromise" with Patriots Owner Robert Kraft under which the
     state "would share the costs of providing police details" on
     game days.  The cost of police details for a football season
     is "about $200,000."  Kraft has been paying the cost in full
     (BOSTON GLOBE, 1/8)....In L.A., Daniel Taub reported that
     about 40% of the luxury suites at Staples Center are already
     committed, "and the rest are expected to [be] sold" early
     this year (L.A. BUSINESS JOURNAL, 12/29 issue)....U.S.
     District Judge Thomas Hogan yesterday ordered an inspection
     of the MCI Center "to ensure that his orders on seating
     arrangements for the disabled have been followed"
     (WASHINGTON POST, 1/8).  Washington Sports Abe Pollin writes
     an op-ed piece in today's WASHINGTON POST on the benefits of
     the MCI Center, saying, "My hope is that MCI Center will
     earn a reasonable, but by no means excessive, profit on its
     far greater investment" (WASHINGTON POST, 1/8).
