The California Angels face unprecedented financial losses that could exceed $8.5 million this year and will force the baseball club to borrow throughout the season, co-owner Jackie Autry said Friday. Autry said escalating salaries were outrunning revenue and that the situation might eventually force a sale of the franchise her husband, Gene, purchased during the American League's expansion in 1961. She added, however, that there were no immediate plans to do so. "Can we stay in there forever?

Jackie Autry, Angel executive vice president and wife of team owner Gene Autry, said that Manager Doug Rader's job is probably safe for the remainder of an 11-game trip that ends Aug. 22. "Right now there's been no decision," she said. "We're giving everybody somewhat the benefit of the doubt. My husband and I tend to be somewhat patient, and really, not everything is Doug's fault." The Angels have lost 11 of their last 13, and 25 of 35.

Jackie Autry watched from the owner's box as her husband, the man they call the Cowboy, moved with tiny, shuffling steps toward home plate for a ceremony on the field at Anaheim Stadium. Always a private person--"even when I was a banker," she says--she is content to remain behind, out of the public eye.

When pitcher John Candelaria returns from a 28-day stay in a rehabilitation program, he will find an unlikely and influential ally who identifies with his recent struggle: Jackie Autry, wife of Angel owner Gene Autry and a recovering alcoholic. On June 2, Autry, 44, completed an addict-alcoholic program at the Betty Ford Center at Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, not far from the Angels' spring training site in Palm Springs.

Collusion? Jackie Autry, the wife of Angel owner Gene Autry and a self-described owner in training, supports the party line. "Collusion?" she asked rhetorically. "That's ridiculous. When have you known the 26 owners to agree on anything. If there was collusion it would be an all-time miracle."

The Autry National Center of the American West took a step this week that underscores its oft-stated mission to tell the whole story of the West: Marshall McKay, chairman of the Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation in Northern California will chair its board of trustees for the next two years, the first Native American to hold the top board post in the museum's 22-year history. "It's a double honor to have this bestowed on me," said McKay. "To come into this position is outstanding for a Native American.

Gene Autry, the legendary singing cowboy, actor, broadcast executive and onetime Anaheim Angels owner, was known for many things. Surfing wasn't one of them. Nonetheless, surf -- or at least surf culture -- will be up at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage on Sunday, even if it's approximately 20 miles inland. In conjunction with its exhibit "Ocean View: the Depiction of the Southern California Coastal Lifestyle," which ends its eight-month run July 27, the Autry will host a free "Beach Party."

Jackie Autry, the widow of the Angels' founding owner, thanked Disney for its dedication to the legacy of Gene Autry but said Wednesday she would have preferred the company sell the team to a local buyer. Disney reached agreement in principle Tuesday to sell the Angels to Phoenix businessman Arturo Moreno for $180 million, subject to the approval of major league owners.

Nobody liked her. They slammed her as cheap and mean, a tightwad former banker with a teller's personality, married to the sweet old singing cowboy who would have done anything to see his team win the World Series. That was the rap on Gene Autry's wife, who essentially ran the Angels from 1991 to 1996, when the team was sold to Disney. And as the media turned on her, Jackie Autry, always a private person, simply retreated from the public eye.

Fifty-nine dollars per box seat? Oh, but it includes dinner. Disney thinks baseball should be dinner theater. Tell Disney that dinner theater doesn't do well in Orange County. Ten years ago there were three or four dinner theaters in Orange County. Now there is only one. That was 1986, the year the Angels were one pitch from the World Series. Put the dinner theater at the Disneyland Hotel. That way people who want to see mediocre theater with mediocre food will have a place to go. Let us Angel fans watch mediocre baseball eating Angel Dogs and peanuts.
