The Dodgers signed utilityman Doug Mientkiewicz and shortstop Angel Berroa to minor-league contracts that include invitations to major league spring training. First baseman John Lindsey , outfielder Prentice Redman , and pitchers Francisco Felix , Juan Perez and Josh Towers also were signed to similar deals.

Top-ranked Calvary Chapel got a pin in the heavyweight match to hold off second-ranked Santa Ana, 32-29, in nonleague wrestling Wednesday at Calvary Chapel. The Eagles picked up the points in Garcia's victory over Eddie Barrios at 1 minute 42 seconds. "I didn't tell him [Garcia] anything," Calvary Chapel Coach John Azevedo said. "He knew what he had to do and he went out there and did it." Led by No.

Mary McNamara's tender tribute to Buffalo Bob, Roy Rogers and Shari Lewis ("Say, Kids, What Time Is It?" Life & Style, Aug. 12) tugged at my heart. How privileged those of us are who grew up with these three as part of our childhood and young adulthood landscape. The memories will never leave: Our family walking across Eastern Avenue to the (rich) neighbor's house on the hill overlooking City Terrace, to watch "Howdy Doody" on one of the first TV sets, in a front room crowded with so many chairs that it reminded us of a movie theater.

Three of seven South Americans charged in California's biggest cocaine seizure were released from jail Friday, and defense attorneys said the remaining four suspects will probably plead guilty to conspiracy to sell the drug. Superior Court Judge John J. Ryan released the three, all Colombian citizens, on their own recognizance but ordered them to return to court on Sept. 5 for a hearing on motions to suppress evidence against all the suspects.
