HOLDING PATTERN: In Winston-Salem, Wesley Young notes the city "still holds the title to Bowman Gray Stadium almost a year after city leaders voted to sell it, with no firm word on when or if the state will give the go-ahead" for Winston-Salem State Univ. to acquire it. The city has "entered into a short-term deal with WSSU for the university to carry out stadium operations such as parking, security, cleanup and other similar tasks" (WINSTON-SALEM JOURNAL, 4/28).
ON TRACK: In Buffalo, James Fink notes HARBORCenter officials said that the project is more than 60% complete and "on track for its fall opening." The project has "more than 180 construction workers on site and double shifts lasting deep into the night" (BUFFALO BUSINESS JOURNAL, 4/25 issue).
