YOU COULD BE MY SULPHER SPRINGS: In Tampa, Varian & Danielson report Hillsborough County Commissioner Victor Crist wants the Rays to consider the "former dog track in Sulphur Springs" as a possible location for a new stadium. Crist: "I'm just saying this is an alternative that makes sense. I think we should put it on the table and look at it." The track is "just a few miles north of downtown and served by three Interstate 275 exit ramps." Crist said that it is "surrounded by acres of parking lots and aged commercial strips on both sides of the interstate, and a stadium could be just the thing to spur nearby investment in what has been a longtime sea of blight" (TAMPA BAY TIMES, 8/22).
