KINGDOME REPAIRS APPROACH $50 MILLION

     King County officials confirmed yesterday that Kingdome
emergency repairs could run as much as $15M over budget, which
would bring the cost of the project up to $47.5M.  King County
Exec Gary Locke said officials are considering a possible ticket
tax or fee on Kingdome events to pay for the excess costs.
Earlier this week, the county sued its insurance carrier on the
Kingdome, Allendale Mutual Insurance, alleging the firm refused
to acknowledge the county's damage claims (SEATTLE POST-
INTELLIGENCER, 11/11).
