ROSE GARDEN RAISES THE BAR ON WHEELCHAIR SEATING

          The Rose Garden "will have better wheelchair seating
     than almost any other sports arena in the country thanks to
     a lawsuit settlement announced Wednesday," according to
     Ashbel Green of the Portland OREGONIAN.  According to the
     agreement, arena officials will build 101 elevated
     wheelchair seats throughout the arena so that users can see
     the game when other spectators stand up in front of them. 
     During Blazer games and other sporting events, arena
     officials will hold all 101 seats open until the day of the
     game, but will sell the seats to the general public if they
     aren't purchased by wheelchair users. The changes "should be
     in effect" by the start of this season (OREGONIAN, 8/6).
