STEPPING UP TO THE PLATE: The city of Omaha "originally planned to spend $26[M] to renovate Rosenblatt," but Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey said that the NCAA "steered city officials toward new construction." Fahey said that he is trying to “persuade the seven-member city council to back the new stadium.” Fahey: “We're working with the council to make sure we answer all their questions, and we're confident we'll get there" (N.Y. TIMES, 2/28). Omaha City Councilman Garry Gernandt, a member of the Save Rosenblatt committee, said that he "remains convinced that improving Rosenblatt is the best option" (Omaha WORLD-HERALD, 2/28).
