SPORT SUPPORT: In DC, Tim Lemke reports the DC Council yesterday "authorized a $2.5[M] subsidy" for the DCSEC, which "should allow the commission to remain viable through the year."

SILVER DOLLAR: Silver Stallion Development Group LLC President H. Wallace Parker, in a letter to Pontiac city reps regarding his proposal to buy the Silverdome, said that he will "drop inclusion of nearby properties and the stadium sign in the sale to help advance a deal."
