FACILITY NOTES

          A Ohio Poll, sponsored by the Cincinnati Enquirer and
     the Univ. of Cincinnati, shows that 68% of Ohioans said pro
     sports teams are not important enough to spend tax money on
     stadiums and coliseums for the teams; 31% said sports teams
     are important enough and 1% didn't know.  A sample of 839 OH
     adults were interviewed from January 20-February 3.  The
     poll has a margin of error of +/- 3.4% (ENQUIRER, 3/1).
          OTHER NOTES: In Denver, columnist Bob Kravitz writes
     that the Broncos' deal, as currently presented, "leaves me
     feeling like there is a better, fairer deal out there that
     puts more of the economic burden on private interests and
     the folks who actually use the stadium."  He calls on the CO
     House to examine the deal passed by the Senate more closely
     (ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS, 3/2)....49ers co-Owner Denise
     DeBartolo York "effectively shut down" DeBartolo
     Entertainment (DBE), the company her brother, Eddie, had
     said would develop the team's stadium complex.  DBE
     reportedly let go "about a dozen of its 15 employees" in a
     "move that would indicate" that DeBartolo York is in control
     of the stadium project (SAN DIEGO UNION-TRIBUNE, 3/1).
