  • SALT LAKE PAPER ANALYZES ITS CITY'S 2002 WINTER BID

         The race for the 2002 Winter Games is profiled in a front-
    page piece by John Keahey of SALT LAKE TRIBUNE.  If either Salt
    Lake City or Quebec wins the 2002 Winter Games, "the Summer and
    Winter Games would be out of Europe for an unprecedented four
    consecutive times."  That could hurt Salt Lake as "geography
    could play a role in the minds of IOC members."  Keahey mentions
    that despite some weak points of the Utah bid -- the '96 Games in
    Atlanta, some environmental concerns, and support in the
    community -- it still holds "front runner status" (SALT LAKE
    TRIBUNE, 2/12).

  • WHO WILL JOIN ATLANTA IN CELEBRATING THE DREAM?

         The Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau (ACVB) has
    announced the slogan, "Atlanta. Come Celebrate the Dream" to tout
    the city during the '96 Games.  The two companies, who will help
    underwrite the $5M ad budget for the campaign, will be formally
    introduced at a news conference today (Susannah Vesey, ATLANTA
    CONSTITUTION, 2/15).
