FACILITY NOTES

          Ideal Steel, a Hispanic-owned company with manufacturing
     facilities in Detroit, has been awarded the contract to
     provide steel columns and beams for the new Tiger Stadium
     (DETROIT NEWS, 5/8)....Turf troubles at Giants Stadium's are
     examined by Bill Pennington on the front-page of the N.Y.
     TIMES, who calls the story a tale "of machine malfunctions,
     of a stadium trying to satisfy two professional football
     teams and a soccer franchise and in the process balance
     demands of soccer purists and pro football pragmatists" (N.Y.
     TIMES, 5/8)....The NFL Cardinals, looking for investors in a
     new stadium, have approached the Fort McDowell-Mohave-Apache
     Indian Community to see whether the tribe is interested in
     investing in the planned $650M stadium (AZ REPUBLIC, 5/8).
     ...The Bears have confirmed that if their new stadium is
     built in the suburbs, the bill "almost certainly would have
     to be footed privately."  In a statement yesterday, the team
     confirmed that they are in talks with Elk Grove Village,
     outside of the city (CHICAGO TRIBUNE, 5/8).  Jay Leno, on a
     new Bears stadium: "They say it's so expensive, they're
     looking for ways to cut costs.  I say, why install the end
     zones?  The Bears never use them anyway" (NBC, 5/7).
