Fear may be too strong a word to describe what Jeff Williams experienced last year after he began losing strength and feeling in his left hand. The left-hander from Australia spent most of the 2000 season on the disabled list because of a left wrist strain and endured off-season surgery Oct. 10 to release scarring around the wrist's ulnar nerve.

A Torrance man was arrested Tuesday in the slaying of an off-duty Los Angeles police detective who was killed on the Westside last month while checking a report of a prowler in a neighbor's yard, authorities said. Police Chief Willie L. Williams described the suspect, William Hite, 50, as an unemployed commercial painter who had dated the woman in whose yard Detective Edward Kislo was shot Aug. 22. Investigators have not determined a motive for the shooting, Williams said at a press conference.

The joke that Jeff Williams loves to needle Michael Johnson with is this: "The only way he'll win a gold medal against me is if somebody invents a platinum one." It's trash talk. Track trash talk. Johnson lets his legs do the talking. But when the fun-loving Williams from Los Angeles kept on kidding him after Sunday's red-hot 200-meter race, Johnson threw a water bottle cap at him. It took only 19.66 seconds for Johnson to wipe out a record that existed for 16 years, 10 months, 11 days.

Forgive Jeff Williams if he failed to grasp the feelings of nostalgia and hoopla surrounding the final baseball game at 3Com Park on Thursday afternoon. Remember, not only is he a rookie, he's from Australia. So Williams didn't get caught up in the frenetic farewell party to the erstwhile Candlestick Park. Not even with the largest crowd to see a regular-season game at 3Com chanting that familiar refrain of "Beat L.A." on seemingly every other Williams pitch.

Jeff Williams, on the disabled list since April 24 because of a left wrist strain, might be out for the season if the strength in his hand does not return soon, the left-handed relief pitcher said before Saturday's game. "The nerve is not sending a signal to my hand," he said. "The muscle has atrophied, big time. It's like I'm throwing the ball with just one finger on it, half of what you usually throw with." Williams struggled with his control this season, getting shelled for an ERA of 18.

It's 791.6 miles by car from Dodger Stadium to Albuquerque Sports Stadium, where the Dodgers' triple-A affiliate Dukes play. But for Dodger reliever Jeff Williams, it's closer than that. Entering Tuesday night's game against the Houston Astros, the left-handed reliever had struggled in three appearances this season with an earned-run average of 27.00 and admitted he could be demoted soon if his problems continue. "Obviously, I'm not too happy about how things are going right now," Williams said.

The sauce for the fish wasn't quite right, so Jeff Williams donned chef's togs and stood at the stove of Clancy's Crab Broiler for half an hour until the cooks at his Glendale restaurant knew exactly what he wanted. Although he's not a chef by training, rolling up his sleeves in the kitchen is just the sort of hands-on management style that has kept Williams successful with his small restaurant empire. It's also one reason why the California Restaurant Writers Assn.

Fifty years ago, in the public schools of Texas, I was taught that Sam Houston (Commander-in-Chief of the Army of Texas during its War of Independence against Mexico, conqueror of Gen. Santa Anna's army at the Battle of San Jacinto, two-term president of the short-lived Republic of Texas, later U.S. senator and then governor of Texas) was my home state's all-time hero--excluding, possibly, those 187 martyrs who in 1836 died at the Alamo, nothing assisting martyrdom half as efficiently as hopeless, romantic death.
