Struggling power merchant Calpine Corp. on Monday hired veteran troubleshooter Robert P. May as its new chief executive, charging him with cleaning up a financial mess that could force the company to seek bankruptcy protection. May, 56, takes over from Calpine director Kenneth Derr, who had been handling the chief executive job on an interim basis since the San Jose-based company ousted its founder, Peter Cartwright, two weeks ago.

When Robert Rizzo pleaded no contest to corruption charges last month, many of the trappings of his former life as Bell's highly paid city manager were gone: the house near the ocean in Huntington Beach, the horse farm outside Seattle, the stable of racehorses. But Rizzo still has two lucrative streams of money from his days in local government that neither Bell nor prosecutors can touch: his 401(k)-style retirement account that once held more than $1 million and an annual pension of $116,628.

MORGAN TSVANGIRAI is not a household name in the United States, but he stands a chance of becoming for Zimbabwe what Nelson Mandela was for South Africa -- especially if his country's ruling regime persists in its self-destructive attempts to crush him. Tsvangirai, 55, was badly beaten by police Sunday during a "prayer meeting" in a suburb of Harare, the nation's capital.

Blipping through the television channels one Sunday afternoon, I stumbled upon Bip. He was hard to find, hidden behind Carmelo Martinez as he was. Leon (Bip) Roberts was at bat, and Martinez was the runner on second base. I paused. Maybe I would get a chance to see if this kid could run like I had been hearing he could run. And then the announcers explained that the bases were loaded. Not only was Martinez on second, but Terry Kennedy and Graig Nettles were also on base. Forget it, I thought.

This Bip is a real pip. The other day, he looked out at the San Diego Jack Murphy Stadium playing field and announced: "Leading off for the Padres and playing second base . . . BIP ROBERTS!" This Bip also has zip, as in zero money. His first major league paycheck isn't due until Tuesday, when he arrives in Yuma, Ariz., for spring training. Early last week, he had just $150 left, and when he asked his wife, Janina, how much she had, she answered: "About $100, Bip."

It was April Fools' Day, but Dennis Conner didn't sound as if he was fooling. He said he might not compete in the International America's Cup Class world championships May 4-11. "I don't know what we'll do," Conner said. "I've entered. But I don't know if our boat will even sail." Conner's latest Stars & Stripes will be christened Sunday at the San Diego Embarcadero. Then he will start figuring how to sail it.

Oral Roberts may have gone too far in his demands for donations and could be blacked out this Sunday morning, according to the one Los Angeles television station that carries his program. For the last two weeks, the Oklahoma television evangelist has been informing his viewers that he will die if they don't contribute $4.5 million to his ministry by March. His Sunday morning program is carried by 200 stations nationally, including KHJ-TV Channel 9.

It is a famous and controversial vision. In 1980, evangelist Oral Roberts claimed he saw a 900-foot-tall figure of Jesus towering 300 feet above the beams and girders of the City of Faith medical center he was building here. The Christ figure, Roberts reported, stooped and lifted the unfinished buildings, declaring, "See how easy it is for Me to lift it." Roberts took the apparition as an affirmation that the medical center, strapped for lack of construction funds, would be completed.

Still crazy after all these years. And still cool, in a golden-oldies kind of way. On view at Cal State Fullerton's Grand Central Art Center in Santa Ana, Robert Williams' recent paintings are lusciously loony, culturally subversive and cartoonishly explosive. They come from the same masterfully manic mind-set as his earlier work in the infamous bad-boys-and-girls exhibit "Helter Skelter" at the Temporary Contemporary space of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles in 1992.

On a chilly early fall morning in the Napa Valley, the Most Powerful Man in the World of Wine--unseasonably attired in a short-sleeved shirt and shorts--stands next to his white rental car in the parking lot at the Meadowood Resort. There's a boyish half-smile on his lips and a small, inch-thick notebook in his left hand. At 51, his Rabelaisian love of food--and 25 years of drinking two bottles of wine a day--have added 80 pounds to his 6-foot, 1-inch frame.

Coach Chuck Knox said a medical examination of Young's right knee Monday revealed no ligament tear. "I had an MRI done Sunday night because I wouldn't have been able to sleep not knowing if there was anything seriously wrong," Young said. "They said it's just a strain.

Suspended Ventura County Judge Robert Bradley has cut short his stay at an Arizona alcohol-treatment facility, a possible probation violation that could mean more time in jail, authorities said Monday. Bradley, suspended from the bench after two drunk-driving arrests last winter, left the Prescott, Ariz., treatment center about 10 days ago, and his whereabouts are unknown, sheriff's officials said.

After a tense 2 1/2 days of deliberations, a Ventura County jury acquitted an Oxnard police officer Wednesday on two counts of police brutality but returned deadlocked on two other charges. As his wife, Monika, cried and clutched a friend's hands, Officer Robert Flinn let out a sigh of relief when he heard the jury read its verdict in front of a courtroom packed with supporters and top-ranking police officials.
