The City of New Orleans will play host to the U.S.
Gymnastics Championships in Aug. '95. The event will be at the
Superdome or the Lakefront Arena (Ted Lewis, New Orleans TIMES-
PICAYUNE, 9/21)...LA Gov. Edwin Edwards will meet next week in an
effort to finalize a contract extending the Saints stay at the
Superdome through 2018. A tentative agreement was reached in
March, but Edwards said the Superdome's managers were holding up
the deal by not being "flexible" in accommodating the state and
the Saints (New Orleans TIMES-PICAYUNE, 9/21)....Prominent signs
for Pepsi, Boatman's National Bank and Busch Beer were installed
on the south facade of St. Louis' new Kiel Center. The logos are
part of a "major sponsorship package." A fourth logo spot is
open for bids (ST. LOUIS POST DISPATCH, 9/22).
