CHARLOTTE CITY COUNCIL APPROVES LEASE CHANGES FOR HORNETS

          The Charlotte City Council voted 10-1 on Monday to
     extend the Hornets' lease at the Coliseum for "at least
     another year" through 2004, according to Dan Chapman of the
     CHARLOTTE OBSERVER.  The deal gives the team the right to
     sell the Coliseum's name and has them taking "greater
     control" of the building's marketing.   The City Council
     will still have the "final say" on any name change to the
     building.  The new deal also "calls for a decision" by 2000
     whether taxpayer dollars "would be used to help build a new
     arena," and establishes a 15-member citizens' committee to
     lead the process on a new arena (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 4/14).
