Volume 24 No. 136


          SLOC President Frank Joklik told a UT legislative
     committee that he's "committed to repairing the damage done
     to the image of the 2002 Winter Games," according to Lisa
     Riley Roche of the DESERET NEWS.  Joklik made his remarks as
     the SLOC asked "for a change in the law that would delay
     repayment" of the $59M that state and local taxpayers have
     invested in Olympic facilities.  State Rep. Jordan Tanner:
     "There's got to be a huge amount of fence mending done to
     bring the people of this state back in support.  We've taken
     some horrible steps backward."  Joklik: "The events of the
     last two to three months have, in some people's minds, sown
     doubts about whether the people involved ... are really
     decent human beings."  Joklik wants to improve communication
     between the SLOC and the public (DESERET NEWS, 9/27).
