TRAFFIC ON THE ISLAND ONE CONCERN FOR GOODWILL GAMES

          While Nassau County officials look forward to hosting
     the Goodwill Games starting on Saturday, "one potential
     nightmare hovers over their vision like a nagging summer
     cold: Traffic."  Officials hope that more than 12% of those
     attending the games will take public transportation and there
     are plans to use up to 70 buses, "depending on demand, to
     routinely shuttle thousands of people from the train stations
     and parking lots to the sporting events" (Monte Young,
     NEWSDAY, 7/17).  Today's N.Y. POST features a 16-page special
     advertising section on the Goodwill Games (7/16).
