Soccer Stadium Under Construction Not Finished
BUILDING BLOCKS: EPL club Liverpool co-Owner Tom Hicks said that "too much money has already been spent for the Premier League team's proposed new stadium not to be eventually built." The AP's Rob Harris noted construction on the new site was "frozen in August 2008 just before the world sank into a deep economic depression, and Hicks acknowledges he doesn't know when the stadium will be completed." Hicks said the team can begin building again "when we get to the point where the global market settles down and we bring pieces together to finance the stadium" (AP, 9/17).
