  • SLOC'S JOKLIK TAKEN TO TASK OVER PR PROBLEMS OF 2002 GAMES

              SLOC President Frank Joklik told a UT legislative
         committee that he's "committed to repairing the damage done
         to the image of the 2002 Winter Games," according to Lisa
         Riley Roche of the DESERET NEWS.  Joklik made his remarks as
         the SLOC asked "for a change in the law that would delay
         repayment" of the $59M that state and local taxpayers have
         invested in Olympic facilities.  State Rep. Jordan Tanner:
         "There's got to be a huge amount of fence mending done to
         bring the people of this state back in support.  We've taken
         some horrible steps backward."  Joklik: "The events of the
         last two to three months have, in some people's minds, sown
         doubts about whether the people involved ... are really
         decent human beings."  Joklik wants to improve communication
         between the SLOC and the public (DESERET NEWS, 9/27).
