METRODOME AIMING TO OFFLOAD ASSETS: In Minneapolis, Richard Meryhew reported Metrodome operators, who are six months away from seeing the stadium demolished, are "scrambling to come up with a plan to sell off its once-prized-but-no-longer-needed assets." MSFA officials on Friday said that the sale of much of the surplus property "probably will spread over a few months, starting this fall." Baseball and basketball equipment will "be the first to go, since the stadium is no longer used for either sport." Anything needed for football "won’t be dismantled or sold until after the Vikings complete their 2013 season" (Minneapolis STAR-TRIBUNE, 7/20).
