  • FACILITY NOTES

              Greg Martin and Tom Heaney, who are trying to recreate
         Ebbets Field in downtown Hartford, had architectural
         drawings done by FL-based architects Lescher & Mahoney.  The
         stadium is projected to cost $15-25M, and once financed,
         Martin and Heaney "are ready" to buy an independent minor
         league team (HARTFORD COURANT, 6/2)....In Ft. Worth, a STAR-
         TELEGRAM editorial says that the work done at Texas Motor
         Speedway in just eight weeks "is staggering."  The entire
         course of the track has been "redesigned, demolished,
         rebuilt and resurfaced at a cost somewhere between" $2-3M,
         "all in an effort to make it the best racing ground possible
         for NASCAR's top Winston Cup drivers.  If this doesn't do
         it, we don't know what will" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 6/2).

  • WITH ELWAY BEHIND CENTER, BRONCOS STADIUM OUTLOOK IMPROVES

              During a news conference announcing his plans to play
         another year, Broncos QB John Elway said that he "will
         support" the team's campaign for a new stadium, according to
         Schefter & Lowe of the DENVER POST.  But Elway added that he
         decided to play to be "competitive on the football field,
         not on the campaign trail."  Elway: "I think [Broncos Owner
         Pat] Bowlen and the Broncos deserve a new stadium.  I've
         said that all along. ... But that's not why I came back." 
         Voters will go to the polls in November, and Bowlen said he
         was unsure what impact Elway's return would have on the
         stadium vote: "If we're winning and John is playing, it
         probably has some impact [on the stadium campaign].  I don't
         know how much; I'm not that smart" (DENVER POST, 6/2).
