There are a thousand stories in the naked city. And Joe Hughes figures he ought to try and dispel some of them. Each December for 37 years, kids from a number of naked cities have descended on Gridley, which isn't a city at all but a town of 4,300 that proclaims itself the Kiwifruit Capital of the World. They come for the Gridley Invitational Basketball Tournament, a curiously prestigious event that draws slammers and jammers from such prep basketball powers as Skyline High of Oakland, St.

That's Nancee Borgnine talking--she, the effervescent offspring of papa Ernest of "Marty" and "McHale's Navy" fame--about her new coffee soda, an all-natural soft drink called Borgnine's.

Three timeouts and a short hop on the snap didn't keep Joe Nedney from kicking a wind-aided 60-yard field goal as time ran out to give San Jose State a 26-24 victory over Wyoming Saturday at Laramie, Wyo. The kick was a Big West Conference record. "I don't think I can feel any better than this," Nedney said. "They tried to get me to think too much. The wind was in my direction.

The burned-out remnants of building that housed an Indian restaurant and apartments on Pico Boulevard, damaged in the 1992 riots, will be demolished this week. Kamran Abselet, owner of the property at West Pico Boulevard and Hayworth Avenue, hired a contractor to raze the two-story building a few days after the city notified him of its intention to demolish the building unless he did so himself.

Then the Assn. of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN) planted hope. The Watts chapter of the national group, founded in January, targets deteriorated vacant houses and buildings that mar the area.
