  • OLYMPIC NOTES: TICKETS DISTRIBUTED TO SPONSORS

         In an effort to avoid last-minute problems, Olympic sponsors
    sent staff to count and check their Olympic tickets at the Fort
    Smith, AK, printing plant, according to the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION.
    Regular spectators won't get their tickets until UPS delivers
    them in early June (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/10)....The labor
    union representing 40% of Georgia Power Co.'s workforce has
    threatened to go on strike less than three weeks before the
    Olympics unless they get a new labor agreement (ATLANTA
    CONSTITUTION, 5/8)....Harley Sheffied, the man who dropped the
    Olympic torch and let the flame go out, will appear Monday night
    on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno."  Other media outlets who
    have called him include NPR, the BBC, and USA Today (WASHINGTON
    POST, 5/10).
