COULD NIKE BE LEAVING THIS STONE UNTURNED?

          Nike "has dropped its bid" to build a research
     headquarters atop Stone Table Mountain in CO, according to
     Charley Able of the ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS.  Leo Bradley,
     attorney for local landowners, said that Nike "rejected the
     site because the tax incentives were insufficient."  Nike
     "had been offered" at least $3M in subsidies.  Bradley said
     that Nike exec Howard Slusher told him that the incentives
     that CO offered "were not adequate."  Nike is eyeing a new
     headquarters that would employ as many as 5,000 people on a
     300-acre site overlooking Denver (ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS,
     4/15).  In a statement, Nike said it continues to examine
     sites in CO, NV, NM, WA and British Columbia and that "no
     decisions are imminent" and the search is "ongoing" (Nike).
