WISCONSIN OFFICIALS PUT THE KIELBASA ON BREWERS NEW PLAN

     The Brewers lost their bid to restructure their stadium
financing plan, as WI legislators said shifting a $50M loan from
the team to the state-created stadium district "violates the
spirit" of the understanding passed last October.  Team and state
officials will continue to study options (AP/MILWAUKEE JOURNAL
SENTINEL, 2/21).  Columnist Michael Bauman writes the controversy
surrounding the plan is unnecessary, as the team is "merely
trying to stay in Wisconsin."  Bauman speculates the Brewers were
having difficulty obtaining the $50M loan (JOURNAL SENTINEL,
2/21).
