INTO THE WILD: PANTHERS HOLDINGS LOSES TOP EXECUTIVE

          RICHARD EVANS, a "high-profile entertainment executive
     brought in by H. WAYNE HUIZENGA about 18 months ago to run
     his sports and entertainment division, resigned on Tuesday
     to pursue private business interests," according to Barry
     Jackson of the MIAMI HERALD.  Evans: "I've enjoyed my
     relationship with Wayne, but I've been a hired gun for 30
     years, and I want to do some of my own things."  Jackson
     writes that as President of Florida Panthers Holdings, Evans
     guided the company through its acquisition of five hotels, a
     golf course and a skating rink, as well as the Panthers'
     IPO.  Evans: "Getting the Boca Raton Resort and Country Club
     was a coup.  People who have been in this business would
     have died for a chance to get the Boca Resort and the
     Biltmore Hotel in Arizona" (MIAMI HERALD, 3/11).
