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. Mientkiewicz made the Dodgers' opening-day roster as a non-roster player this year, only to dislocate a shoulder two weeks into the season. Initially told by doctors that he would be out the remainder of the year, Mientkiewicz returned in time to play 13 games in the final month of the season.

Don Garcia just needed to pick up four points. He grabbed two more for good measure. 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.

More than 3,000 people turned out for a picnic and car show Sunday to benefit Rancho San Antonio, a school where teenage boys trade gang signs for crucifixes. Event organizers hoped to raise $80,000--to be combined with a $150,000 grant and a donation from Classic Chevys of Southern California--to help pay for building and maintenance for a year. The school is funded by Los Angeles County and the Los Angeles Archdiocese.

"I think people get a false sense of security . . . . Maybe these kids watched too much 'Gentle Ben.' That's a real danger. That's why we have people feeding bears in Yellowstone and elsewhere." That sad speculation came Wednesday from Jean Hromadka, president of the American Assn. of Zoo Keepers and an elephant keeper at the San Diego Wild Animal Park when she was asked about the tragedy at Brooklyn's Prospect Park the night before.

As it has managed to do for more than a century, the global oil industry is adjusting to a vastly changed landscape. Contrary to doomsday scenarios, and despite its critics, the oil business is by most accounts emerging from troubled times still solidly at center stage in the energy industry and with a supporting cast of increasingly flexible, lean, internationally competitive companies. And there are more surprises in this new world of oil: a wiser Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries cartel that yearns to be a dependable supplier; revamped oil companies that hope to earn profits whether crude prices are high or low, and a planet with far more petroleum than any wildcatter's dream.
