          Tailgating and ticket-scalping will not be allowed at
     the National Car Rental Center, the NHL Panthers' new arena
     (SUN-SENTINEL, 9/17).  In Miami, Julie Kay reported that
     while tailgating violates Sunrise city codes, the
     "unofficial reason" for not allowing tailgating is because
     the team "want fans to buy food inside the arena" (MIAMI
     HERALD, 9/16)....In Charlotte, Tony Mecia reported the New
     Arena Committee, a citizen's committee evaluating a possible
     new Hornets arena, proposed a two-day November trip to visit
     new arenas in DC, Philadelphia and Cleveland -- using the
     Hornets' private plane.  Mecia wrote that some City Council
     members say "they're troubled by the possible involvement of
     the Hornets in a citizen-driven process that could benefit
     the team financially."  The cost of the trip is estimated at
     $17,000 to $20,000 (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 9/16).
