NEW HOME FOR BREW CREW MAY NOT COST AS MUCH AS EXPECTED

     The cost of financing a new stadium in Milwaukee "could be
lower than previously thought," according to Craig Gilbert of the
MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL.  Stadium boosters and public
officials had been under the impression that it would take a
"revenue stream" of $18-22M a year for the next 20 years to pay
for the project.  Now, the governor's top cabinet official says
those figures "are getting better."   Gilbert writes that while
funding has been discussed, the main question remains:  "Who pays
for it."  WI Gov. Tommy  Thompson said Monday that a stadium
authority or district will be created to manage the entire
process.  But Gilbert notes that that still leaves questions as
to "How big the stadium district will be?," and "Who will sit on
the stadium district board?" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL-SENTINEL, 5/10).
