FACILITY NOTES

          Red Sox Exec VP John Buckley said the club "was not
     ready to present a specific plan" for a new stadium yet. 
     Characterizing the project as a "public-private
     partnership," Buckley said, "We've got to have a financing
     plan that makes sense.  We don't have that."  He also said

     do more groundwork with fans and neighbors" (BOSTON GLOBE,
     4/23)....CO Gov. Roy Romer approved a plan to use public
     money for a new Broncos stadium, "clearing the way for a

     should have the opportunity to vote on this issue" (DENVER
     POST, 4/23)....The Winston-Salem, NC, board of aldermen "has
     decided not to take a position on a proposal to use
