TAXPAYERS MAY HAVE TO FOOT THE BILL IN ATLANTA

     Taxpayers in Atlanta and Fulton County "may have to pay as
much as $1 million this year because of the baseball strike's
lingering impact on attendance," according to today's ATLANTA
CONSTITUTION.  Due to poor attendance, the losses in operating
revenues at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium are already reportedly
at $500,000 and all losses to  the Atlanta-Fulton County
Recreation Authority that aren't covered must be made up by
Atlanta and Fulton County taxpayers.  The Authority owns and
operates the stadium (Hiskey and Pomerantz, ATLANTA CONSTITUTION,
5/19).
