Hamilton County (OH) will pay "[a]t least" $50M in professional fees to architects, lawyers, construction managers and other consultants on the Bengals' stadium project. County records show that the fees "already paid or budgeted" for the project total "just over" $50M, led by the $19.8M commission for L.A.-based NBBJ Sports & Entertainment, the project's architectural firm (CINCY POST, 4/27)....The bright "Las Vegas" stadium sign in Bank One Ballpark has "prompted an outcry" from Phoenix' tourism industry.

It takes away some of the visibility for our own city" (AP/SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 4/25).
