FACILITY NOTES

          Hamilton County, OH, and the Bengals will hold a
     groundbreaking ceremony for Paul Brown Stadium on April 25
     (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 3/24)....In Las Vegas, the U.S. Grand
     Prix [USGP] formally submitted a proposal to Clark County,
     NV, to build an 18-hole championship golf course and a 2
     1/2-mile F-1 route. In its proposal, the USGP's Tommy Baker
     said that F-1 circuit would be used only once a year, for a
     proposed season-ending U.S. Grand Prix.  Baker said that
     FIA, the sanctioning body for F-1 racing, "is behind the
     project" and would grant Las Vegas a race if the circuit is
     built (LAS VEGAS SUN, 3/24)....In L.A., NHL Kings President
     Tim Leiweke said that negotiations for the Clippers to move
     into the new Staples Center, which breaks ground tomorrow,
     "have broken down again."  Clippers Owner Donald Sterling
     "initially rejected overtures from developers because the
     Kings and Lakers would get the choice dates and the Clippers
     would get the rest, probably a lot of weekday matinees"
     (L.A. TIMES, 3/24)....Unseasonably wet weather has put
     construction of the Astros ballpark about ten days behind
     schedule (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 3/25)....Ogden Entertainment is
     trying to stop picket action in front of the Corel Centre
     and its parking lots by striking cleaners.  Ogden said the
     seven-week long strike is causing "irreparable harm" to the
     company and limiting the ability of fans to get to the game
     on time (OTTAWA CITIZEN, 3/25).
