     In an effort to avoid last-minute problems, Olympic sponsors
sent staff to count and check their Olympic tickets at the Fort
Smith, AK, printing plant, according to the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION.
Regular spectators won't get their tickets until UPS delivers
them in early June (ATLANTA CONSTITUTION, 5/10)....The labor
union representing 40% of Georgia Power Co.'s workforce has
threatened to go on strike less than three weeks before the
Olympics unless they get a new labor agreement (ATLANTA
CONSTITUTION, 5/8)....Harley Sheffied, the man who dropped the
Olympic torch and let the flame go out, will appear Monday night
on the "Tonight Show with Jay Leno."  Other media outlets who
have called him include NPR, the BBC, and USA Today (WASHINGTON
POST, 5/10).
