OHIO PLAYERS: In Cincinnati, Sharon Coolidge wrote the full tax rebate "promised to Hamilton County voters when they approved building" Paul Brown Stadium and Great American Ball Park in '96 "may be gone forever." A stadium fund plan that runs through '19 and features "a reduced rebate going forward" was presented to Hamilton County commissioners on Monday. The reduced rebate "means the fund would be balanced through the next five years after four years of shortfalls" (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 9/11).
