"High Noon" It ain't, but the challenge to individual combat (involving who can last the longest on those heart-stopping turns and dips) is a lighthearted effort to save the Cyclone, according to Abraham Goodman, first deputy administrator of the Economic Development Administration. "The site was condemned several years ago so that the Aquarium could expand on to that land," he said, "but EDA would like to explore the feasibility of the city continuing to ' rent the land to some private operator of the roller coaster." Pinched Nerve in Neck "I told Eddie I'd challenge him to e ride, and if I win, I gain some time to save a business for the private sector, Goodman grinned. "We could have people out there to root j for us, the works." Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs Administrator Weisl, like Goodman a New York who rode the Cyclone as a boy, said "no, thanks" because of a pinched nerve in his ' neck but he issued a connterchallenge. "We want to build a killer whale and dolphin exhibit there, and If Abe will get in some killer whale pool for an endurance test, I'm willing," Weisl mused, tongue firmly in cheek. Kidding aside, he said no other adjacent land was available (for the Aquarium's expansion, but if the Coney Island community prefers a Cyclone to a marineland-type water show, the parks department is willing to listen. "If people want a big, scary roller coaster Instead of a big, scary killer whale, we'll see what we can do," Weisl said. tll!imHiiifiillimil!Himsimlllilll!llljill!uillliljlmiN!mii!!tlHll.i!ljlllllh NEWS BRIEFS Taxi Inspections Get Court's So-Ahead A temporary restraining order halting the inspection of taxieabs was lifted in Manhattan Supreme Court yesterday afternoon, and the new inspection program was scheduled to begin this morning.
