LOOKING AHEAD TO SALT LAKE: COULD TRIPP HAPPEN?

          Linda Tripp, involved in the President Clinton-Monica
     Lewinsky dispute, "is a final candidate for a plum
     government job helping to coordinate" the 2002 Games,
     according to Brian Blomquist of the N.Y. POST.  Tripp is one
     of three finalists for the civilian liaison job for the
     Army.  Pentagon execs "wouldn't comment" (N.Y. POST, 2/22).
          MORE FROM UTAH: Salt Lake's preparations are featured
     in USA TODAY's sports cover story by Jill Lieber under the
     header, "New Utah Motto: Be Prepared" (USA TODAY, 2/24).
     ...U.S. Senator Robert Bennett (R-UT) and U.S. Rep. Merrill
     Cook (R-UT) said they are "more convinced than ever the
     federal government must help pay for the 2002 Winter Games
     in Salt Lake City" (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 2/22)....SLOC will
     have "at most" 50 licensees, compared to 160 in Nagano, and
     expects to raise about $35M of the more than $1B needed to
     host the 2002 Games (SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, 2/21).
