  • ACOG PRESIDENT SPREADS OLYMPIC SPIRIT TO ORLANDO; & DISNEY?

         ACOG Pres. and CEO Billy Payne "welcomed Orlando into
    Atlanta's family of Olympic cities."  Orlando's Florida Citrus
    Bowl will play host to nine Olympic first round soccer matches.
    Payne helped kick off a promotion for the Orlando Soccer
    Booster's which will help "make it easier for Central Floridans"
    to buy tickets before they officially go on sale in '95.  Payne
    told business leaders and Florida Citrus Sports that he hears
    everybody who is going to Atlanta will go to Orlando: "It's an
    indispensable part of their visit" (Bill Buchalter, ORLANDO
    SENTINEL, 10/4).
         SECURITY DETAIL:  Congress has appropriated $14.4M to the
    Defense Department for security-related logistical support for
    the Games in '96 (THE DAILY).
         UTAH'S WINTER BID:  Park City, UT, Mayor Brad Olson appeared
    with Willard Scott on NBC's "Today."  The two were at the new UT
    Winter Sports Park.  Olson: "We're in the process of bidding for
    2002 Winter Olympics and the Winter Sports Park plays a key role
    in that."  Skiing, bobsled & luge and possibly the figure skating
    would all be in Park City.  Other segments with Willard included
    ski jumping and interviews, all with plugs for UT's 2002 bid
    (NBC, 10/5).
