     Atlanta officials are nearing an agreement on a deal to use
rental car taxes to finance improvements near the proposed new
arena for the Hawks (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 4/25)....Loudoun
County, VA, will unveil a plan tonight for a "sprawling" sports
and entertainment complex near Dulles Int'l Airport as the
competition "intensifies" among four Northern VA counties vying
to be home to a new ballpark.  Regions have until May 15 to
submit bids to the VA Baseball Stadium Authority (WASHINGTON
POST, 4/25)....Maneuvering of the city of New York and the
Yankees over a new stadium on Manhattan's West Side is profiled
in the current NEW YORK magazine.  Craig Horowitz writes Mayor
Rudolph Giuliani's intent was to send a "clear pro-sports, pro-
business message," but that was not a "strong opening position
for negotiations" since the city seemed to be bidding "against
itself."  Giuliani "hasn't played the game well thus far, thought
he hasn't lost it.  Yet" (NEW YORK, 4/29 issue).
