PUBLIC RELATIONS: In St. Paul, Doug Belden notes the hearings, with “another is scheduled for Dec. 6 -- are meant to gather public input to help finalize a stadium bill.” Lawmakers “could take action either in next year's session, which starts Jan. 24, or in a special session beforehand.” Along with officials from Minneapolis, Ramsey County, the Vikings and the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, “20 members of the public testified.” There were “about six in favor of a Minneapolis stadium, four who wanted Arden Hills and two who spoke against Arden Hills.” Others “focused on financing, stadium features and procedural issues” (ST.
