TALK GETS TOUGH IN LIONS STADIUM NEGOTIATIONS

     "Talk is getting tough and the opportunities for compromise
are growing slim" as the Lions and the the city of Pontiac
bargain over an extension of the team's lease.  Pontiac City
Council President Adrian Spinks:  "I don't think either side has
a lot of wiggle room and consequently you get to a point where
there's not much room for improvement.  Both sides "remain
optimistic," however, that a deal can be reached that gives the
lions a share of the stadium revenue (AP/N.Y. TIMES, 5/15).
