Sacramento Kings' center Ralph Sampson threatened to beat up a newspaper reporter, apparently over a column that called the former All-Star one of basketball's "great disappointments." Sampson interrupted an interview Sacramento Bee reporter R.E. Graswich was holding with Kings' player personnel director Jerry Reynolds before Tuesday's 114-105 loss to the Clippers. "If you ever write something about me without talking to me again, I'll punch you in the nose," the Bee quoted Sampson as saying.

The call to Laguna Beach's Animal Services folks came from a woman who thought her cat had died and was pinned under a mattress. An officer found the creature atop a tall clothes dresser -- and very much alive. "She had just gotten the cat," explained Officer Joy Falk, "and she assumed it had died because it wouldn't come when she called." Obviously, she didn't know much about those infernal beasts.

Some Sacramentans flying out of LAX were not happy about Southwest Airlines' destination monitors on the day the Lakers-Kings series started. Sacramento Bee columnist R.E. Graswich reports that the airline had a bit of a problem spelling the name of the state capital. Seems it came out: "Shaq-ramento." Unreal estate: Today's specials (see accompanying) include: * A residence with a garage for a family of SUV owners (Joyce Hiller of Redondo Beach) * A home with a lingerie room (Diana Bahr of L.A.

Sacramento Bee columnist R.E. Graswich, musing over the Athletics' reluctance to join all the high-fiving over the Raiders' return to the Oakland Coliseum: "The A's have been very quiet the last few days. . . . Maybe [owner Walter A.] Haas lacks that special Raider spirit. ". . . Imagine living in an apartment for years, paying the rent on time, keeping the place clean . . .

I mentioned the lawsuit filed by a San Marcos man against the city of Escondido after his 55-pound dog, Kimba, was allegedly attacked by the library's 10-pound pet cat. The plaintiff, Richard Espinosa, said that the feline, identified as L.C., leaped from a counter and, "without provocation, began clawing Kimba, at times with all four paws." Espinosa, who said he was too disabled to work because of anxiety attacks before the incident, blamed it for triggering another one.

Coach Bill Fitch was livid after the Clippers' 99-82 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night. "You've got to come to play every night," Fitch screamed after his team was outscored 25-6 during a second-quarter lapse. But the Clippers didn't come to play, falling behind by 19 points and losing, before a sellout crowd of 17,317 at the Arco Arena. It's hard to determine who was worse, replacement officials Mike Bobiak and Allen Williams or the Clippers.

There are times when we must pity the bureaucrats. This is one of those times. In a display of civic-minded enlightenment, the folks at Caltrans last year invited Sacramentans to pick a new paint color for their beloved Tower Bridge, one of the capital's most visible landmarks. The winning hue -- topping two other choices -- was metallic gold. It seemed fitting, locals said, given Sacramento's storied Gold Rush past.

Mater Dei girls' basketball Coach Mary Hauser can consider herself lucky that she was able to attend all her team's playoff games. Hauser, who is expecting her second child April 19, began contractions at 31 weeks instead of the usual 40. She has since been taking a muscle relaxant, niphidine, which helps prevent contractions. "That's why I've been an inanimate object on the bench," Hauser said. "If I get excited, or my blood pressure rises, it can cause me to go into labor--any kind of stress.
