DO OIL AND WATER MIX? NASHVILLE RESIDENTS SAY YES

     A poll in the Nashville TENNESSEAN shows that the deal to
finance the Oilers' move has support among Davidson County
voters.  In Houston, John Williams reports that 53% of Nashville-
area residents approve of a plan to raise the city's share of
$140M for a new Oilers stadium through water and sewer fees,
while 34% oppose.  However, 58% said they would want a
referendum.  Meanwhile, the TN House Finance Committee approved a
bill Tuesday to pay for the state's $80M portion.  The Nashville
Metro Council will likely vote February 27 on whether to finance
the city's obligation through water and sewer fees (HOUSTON
CHRONICLE, 2/21).
