The doctor who found the body of 25-year-old professional golfer Erica Blasberg told Nevada investigators he hid a suicide note and pills because he wanted to spare her family embarrassment, according to a court document released Wednesday. A Henderson police affidavit detailed the hours Blasberg and Dr. Thomas Hess spent together playing golf, watching TV in a casino sports book and in her home in the days before he found her dead May 9 with a plastic bag over her head.

Randy Jones sat in the Padre dugout and gazed wistfully at the area he used to call his own at San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium. "There are a lot of fond memories out there," Jones said. "All those games, those two great years, those standing ovations. It's fun to sit here and reminisce about the good things." During his best times, there wasn't a better pitcher in baseball. Jones, a left-hander, led the National League in earned-run average (2.24) in 1975. In 1976, he won the Cy Young Award.

I read your Feb. 3 article about Jeff Berryhill with great surprise ("Lovers' Spat Spins Directly Into Mandatory Sentencing Laws"). Although I was quoted several times in the article, I have never spoken with your reporter. If The Times had bothered to phone me, you would have discovered the following facts: Jeff Berryhill assaulted Randy Jones twice on the night in question, once on a public street, and the next time after breaking into Jones' home. The latter resulted in a wound to Jones' eye requiring five stitches to close.

Randy Jones, a former Duke football captain who has been Brian Shimer's pusher and brakeman for the last two years, will remain in that capacity when two-man bobsled competition begins today. In the second of two training runs Thursday, Shimer, dissatisfied with his start times this season, had switched to former UCLA football player Jeff Woodard, the pusher for driver Randy Will. Will was eliminated in a race-off for the two U.S.

When former San Diego Padre Randy Jones was at the height of his baseball career, a stiff wind was about the only thing that could upset the aim of his accurate but slow-moving sinker. Today, the wind is Jones' ally. Two years after hanging up his baseball glove and spikes, Jones is busy selling windmills for a Northern California firm. Calling himself an "investment marketer," Jones also is dabbling in real estate with a $1.1-million commercial, office and restaurant project near Chico.

Leave it to the new guy to show the Kings how to finish. Randy Jones had a goal and an assist in his Los Angeles debut and the Kings beat Carolina, 5-2, on Wednesday night to extend the Hurricanes' winless streak to 13. Wayne Simmonds, former Hurricane Justin Williams and Ryan Smyth each added a goal and an assist, Jarret Stoll also scored and Anze Kopitar had two assists to give him an NHL-leading 30 points. The Kings, who allowed three unanswered third-period goals in a 4-1 loss at Chicago two nights earlier, ended their two-game slide by reeling off three straight goals in the final 20 minutes.
