BENGALS STADIUM STILL IN JEOPARDY AFTER NO LAND DEAL

          Talks between Cincinnati and Hamilton County over its
     riverfront development "went into a tailspin" Thursday,
     "calling into question again whether the Bengals' $400.3
     million stadium complex will be built," according to May &
     Wilkinson of the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER.  Cincinnati City
     Manager John Shirey "gave city council members what appeared
     to be a city-county deal Thursday morning."  But county
     leaders then said they "never agreed to the document." 
     Bengals President Mike Brown has said if the city and county
     don't reach a deal by Saturday, January 31, he will walk
     away from the stadium deal (CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, 1/23).
