College Football Hall of Fame moving to Atlanta

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) -- The mayor of South Bend, Ind., says the
College Football Hall of Fame is moving from his city to Atlanta.
Mayor Stephen Luecke said Wednesday that officials
with the National Football Foundation, which runs the hall, told
him Tuesday the hall was terminating its agreement with the city.
Luecke says South Bend's agreement with the hall runs through
2010, but that he would consider closing the hall before then.
Officials with the Hall of Fame and its operator did not
immediately respond to repeated phone messages seeking comment.
The hall opened in South Bend in 1995 to take advantage of its
proximity to Notre Dame. Supporters predicted it would attract more
than 150,000 visitors a year, but it drew about 115,000 people the
first year and about 60,000 annually after that.
