Atlanta officials are nearing an agreement on a deal to use rental car taxes to finance improvements near the proposed new arena for the Hawks (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 4/25)....Loudoun County, VA, will unveil a plan tonight for a "sprawling" sports and entertainment complex near Dulles Int'l Airport as the competition "intensifies" among four Northern VA counties vying to be home to a new ballpark.
