FACILITY NOTES

          In Boston, Peter Gammons wrote on the "huge" off-season
     facing Red Sox CEO John Harrington: "He has to get this
     ballpark thing squared away; those in the political circle
     believe he has blundered, and those in the development
     circle wonder about his ability to make a decision.  He has
     to use every possible Disney/Fox rivalry to get meaningful
     TV dollars" (BOSTON GLOBE, 11/1)....The conservative think
     tank, Allegheny Institute for Public Policy, filed suit
     against the Regional Asset District Board to stop plans to
     partly finance two sports facilities in Pittsburgh.  The
     suit claims the board "lacked the authority" to commit
     public funding toward the facilities (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER,
     11/2)....The city of Cleveland has awarded SD-based
     Daktronics a $13.5M contract for two "giant scoreboards" at
     the new Browns stadium.  The video boards will be 94 feet by
     27 feet and have light-emitting diodes which gives a
     "sharper, more intense image" (PLAIN DEALER, 10/29).
