          Hamilton County (OH) will pay "[a]t least" $50M in
     professional fees to architects, lawyers, construction
     managers and other consultants on the Bengals' stadium
     project.  County records show that the fees "already paid or
     budgeted" for the project total "just over" $50M, led by the
     $19.8M commission for L.A.-based NBBJ Sports &
     Entertainment, the project's architectural firm (CINCY POST,
     4/27)....The bright "Las Vegas" stadium sign in Bank One
     Ballpark has "prompted an outcry" from Phoenix' tourism
     industry.  Phoenix Con. & Visitors Bureau President David
     Radcliffe: "It's disappointing to have something like that
     in our own backyard.  It takes away some of the visibility
     for our own city" (AP/SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 4/25).
