THE LAST HOLD-OUT: In Orlando, Mark Schlueb reports negotiators at Orlando City Hall and a church that "stands in the way" of a new MLS stadium "remain far apart on a selling price and appear headed to court." City officials have been "trying for more than a year to acquire the land where tiny Faith Deliverance Temple sits." The city has "bought up 17 other parcels and filed eminent domain actions in court to force the sale of two others on the Parramore site." The church is the "last hold-out." Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said, "My understanding is … they're back at wanting $35 million for a $700,000 piece of property, so I anticipate at some point we're going to have to move forward and let the court determine what the fair market value of that property is" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 4/30).
