Ground was broken for the new CoreStates Center in
Philadelphia on Wednesday. Mayor Ed Rendell recommended PA
lottery money from sports betting to fund the project (Frank
Lawlor, PHILA. INQUIRER, 9/15)....An Amway convention scheduled
for the Kingdome October 14-16 has been canceled, costing King
County $2-$4M (SEATTLE TIMES, 9/15).
CORRECTION: Susan King of the Metropolitan Sports
Facilities Commission in the Twin Cities was incorrectly quoted
in the September 14 issue of THE DAILY. Thge quote should have
read that the Metrodome is only publicly held stadium in the
nation that is completely self-supporting and receives no tax
dollars. We regret any confusion.
