  • BROWN'S SUGAR: BENGALS STADIUM DEAL GETS DONE AT DEADLINE

              The Cincinnati City Council approved a deal with
         Hamilton County, OH, on Sunday on a Bengals stadium, "about
         75 minutes after county commissioners passed the agreement,"
         according to Goldberg, Hobson & May of the CINCINNATI
         ENQUIRER.  The deal requires the city to transfer 12.5 acres
         of city-controlled land the county needs for stadium
         construction (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 2/1).  Lucy May reported
         that county and team officials are still working to set a
         "guaranteed maximum price" for the facility.  In the
         meantime, demolition of the site will continue in stages,
         with a large portion cleared by March (ENQUIRER, 1/31).

  • FACILITY NOTES

              Union workers at Ottawa's Corel Centre are threatening
         to "shut the place down" if their demands for wage increases
         are not met.  The Senators play at home tonight and again on
         Thursday (OTTAWA SUN, 2/2)....S.F. Mayor Willie Brown said
         that the 49ers stadium-mall complex will "continue to
         proceed as if nothing's changed."  Brown: "The voters
         authorized us to do a deal for a stadium and mall and I plan
         to follow through with that."  In S.F., Gregory Lewis
         reported that "a 550-acre chunk of Brisbane, quietly eyed a
         year ago for a new 49ers stadium, is getting a second look
         as an alternative" (Gregory Lewis, S.F. EXAMINER, 2/1).

  • PADRES LOOK TO MOVE FORWARD ON SITE AFTER TASK FORCE REPORT

              Following the release of the Padres Task Force on
         Ballpark Planning's report recommending the Centre City East
         downtown site for a new Padres ballpark, Owner John Moores
         said he is ending negotiations in Chula Vista and "wedding
         the club's fate to Centre City East," according to Bloom &
         Monteagudo of the SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE.  The task force
         also recommended the creation of a "ballpark district," a
         concept Moores "endorsed," estimated to cost "between" $200-
         $250M.  The S.D. City Council "is expected to take the task
         force recommendations, plus the results of negotiations
         between the city and the Padres, and craft an initiative for
         the ballot, "probably for November" (UNION-TRIBUNE, 1/30).
              REAX: Regarding the Centre City East site, UNION-
         TRIBUNE columnist Nick Canepa wrote, "Vote for it and build
         it," while an editorial said that the site recommendation
         "has considerable appeal" (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 1/30).
