COULD BE AN ASTRO LOGICAL DEAL: NEW STADIUM NAME TO ENRON?

          Energy company Enron "is the front-runner" to acquire
     naming rights to the Astros' new ballpark in a deal that
     could have "ramifications far beyond" naming rights,
     according to John Williams of the HOUSTON CHRONICLE.  The
     new name of The Ballpark at Union Station could be "as
     simple" as Enron Park.  Enron is also "proposing" that it
     manage many of the services in the new stadium, including
     elevators, escalators, energy, air conditioning and
     landscaping.  The company is also "looking into helping to
     acquire" currently vacant land around the stadium to "build
     and manage a large residential, retail and commercial
     development."  Enron execs declined comments and said that
     "facility management and especially downtown development"
     talks are "premature" (HOUSTON CHRONICLE, 1/13).
