We study photoproduction of jets and heavy flavors in a polarized collider mode of HERA at $\sqrt{S}= 298$ GeV. We examine the sensitivity of the cross sections and their asymmetries to the proton's polarized gluon distribution and to the completely unknown parton distributions of longitudinally polarized photons.
