EVENTS & ATTRACTIONS NOTES

          In Toronto, William Houston reports that Calgary
     organizers have been negotiating with Time Warner to acquire
     rights to the 2005 Goodwill Games.  Sources said that
     Calgary "is viewed favourably" by Turner Sports because of
     its current facilities (Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 4/9)....The
     Dallas 2012 Olympic bid committee "will provide initial
     funding for a regional sports commission that should be
     formed in the next two months to attract sports events to
     the North Texas area."  Dallas 2012 Chair Tom Luce said he
     hopes that recruiting and hosting Olympic and other amateur
     sports events "will boost the region's chances of winning
     the 2012 Games" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 4/9).
