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).
