CENTENNIAL ARENA PRICE TAG KEEPS GOING AND GOING AND...

          The price of Raleigh's Centennial Arena, future home of
     the Hurricanes and N.C. State Univ., has increased by $20M,
     putting the cost of the arena at $152M, according to Laurie
     Willis of the Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER.  Centennial Authority
     Chair Steve Stroud said the price increase "reflects
     construction delays caused by unusually wet weather that has
     slowed work."  Since the beginning of construction, there
     have been "well over" 60 bad weather work days.  Stroud
     "suggested" that the Authority might ask for more support
     from the city and Wake County. But Raleigh Mayor Tom Fetzer,
     who was already an opponent of the arena, said that he
     "doesn't plan to give another dime" to the project.  Fetzer:
     "Not in this lifetime.  This will be the third time they've
     gone to that well" (Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 6/5).
