A law restricting former Santa Monica city officials and employees from private lobbying and from offering advice on matters in which they participated while in office has been enacted by the City Council. The "revolving-door ordinance" is intended to prevent officials and employees from using confidential information gained in their position for private advantage after they leave office.

Scouting the NFL training camps . . . IRVINE--Chris Miller, new Ram quarterback, looks great in opening workouts. He drops back briskly, plants his right foot firmly and heaves perfect 50-yard spirals that . . . leave divots as they repeatedly nose dive into the ground, because the Rams have no wide receivers in camp. As you may have heard. * AUSTIN, Tex.--Big 150-question intelligence exam going down at the Dallas Cowboys' training complex.

One of the standard criticisms of programs to unburden California's overcrowded network of prisons and county jails is that crime will increase as more felons are released on parole and more lower-level offenders are put on probation instead of being sent to jail. The argument goes that inmates are criminals by definition and we can expect them to commit more crimes when they are freed. And if that's the case, we can expect arrest records to show that parolees and probationers make up a huge portion of the population of people arrested for new crimes.

"Ihad a period in 1981 when I was Florence Henderson. Then, I wanted to look like Sissy in 'Family Affair.' " Now, says Ann Magnuson, "I'm into the 1800s . . . heart-beating romanticism, filmy empire-waist dresses, reading Lord Byron." But for her role in "You Could Be Home Now," a one-woman show that opened Thursday night in West Hollywood, Magnuson, who played a fashion victim magazine editor on the TV series "Anything but Love," has become a fashion minimalist.

The Who's-No. 1 soap opera that played out here in the Newsweek Champions Cup tennis tournament will be repeated in the next two weeks at the Lipton in Key Biscayne, Fla. Carlos Moya's loss to Mark Philippoussis in Sunday's final here left Moya 37 points ahead of Pete Sampras. Moya will remain No. 1 for two weeks no matter what, since there is no ranking change on the middle Monday at Lipton, same as at the Grand Slam events.

"Ready to go? I'm ready to go," Pierre Gauthier announced. He came to training camp as an answer and left for Springfield and the American Hockey League as a question. Olli Jokinen returns as neither. Or both. The Kings, who have been shut out in three of their last four games, including the last two at home, said Monday that Jokinen was being recalled from Springfield, where he had three goals and nine points.

Yao Ming has been a big problem for the Clippers. The 7-foot-6, 310-pound Houston center scored 29 points and grabbed 15 rebounds Feb. 22 in a 106-102 Rocket victory at the Toyota Center. In nine games this month, Yao is averaging 28.9 points and 11 rebounds. Tonight at Houston, the Clippers begin a three-game, five-day trip, so they again have focused much of their attention on Yao. "Yao Ming has been playing incredibly well," Coach Mike Dunleavy said.

Derek Jeter and Ryan Howard received their trophies for the Hank Aaron Award on Wednesday night and Jeter was asked a lot of questions, none of them having to do with the Hank Aaron Award. In fact, Aaron himself was fortunate not to be standing between Jeter and the questions that grip New York baseball. The Yankees fell out of the playoffs early, of course, leading to reports Manager Joe Torre had been fired or would be fired, which kept up until Torre said he would return for another season.

Scot Shields can make a bigger impact than merely pitching his way into the Angels' 2004 starting rotation if he excels the remainder of the season. The former reliever could save the Angels millions on a front-line starter while allowing General Manager Bill Stoneman to spend the off-season addressing the team's other needs, primarily in the outfield and at first base. "He could answer some questions for us," Stoneman said.
