  • BALTIMORE AND DC COMBINE FORCES FOR 2012 OLYMPIC BID

              Washington, DC, and Baltimore will make a joint bid for
         the 2012 Summer Olympic Games and organizers are set to
         announce the effort today in hope of resolving "a bitter
         behind-the-scenes battle over the right to lead an effort
         that could bring billions of dollars to the region,"
         according to Wilson & Heath of the WASHINGTON POST.  DC
         Mayor Marion Barry and Baltimore Mayor Kurt Schmoke each
         will appoint as many as five board members to join a dozen
         execs from some of the region's largest companies, including
         Mobil, Bell Atlantic and NationsBank, on a new consolidated
         organizing committee.  Elizabeth Ganzi, Washington's Olympic
         exploratory committee Chair was kept off the new board, and
         she threatened yesterday to file suit against the combined
         committee (WASHINGTON POST, 6/30).  There are eight other
         bids for the USOC's 2012 nomination (Baltimore SUN, 6/30).
