WRITING FROM THE CENTER by Scott Russell Sanders. (Indiana University Press: $20; 216 pp.) Where is the center? Scott Sanders begins with his "home territory" in "Southern Indiana, in the watershed of the Ohio River." "The skies in my pages are filled with thunderstorms and red-tailed hawks . . . the woods are thick with grapevines and hickories." Begin in your back yard, he suggests: "We need a literature--as we need a culture--of inhabitation."

Attorneys for a man charged with killing eight people in a Seal Beach salon three years ago have accused Orange County prosecutors and sheriff's deputies of running an unconstitutional jailhouse informant operation that ensnared their client and other inmates. Scott Dekraai's public defenders say that the district attorney's office oversaw an "unchecked and lawless custodial informant program" which resulted in systemic constitutional violations and kept defense attorneys in the dark about the so-called jailhouse snitches.

First writer Aaron Sorkin left the project. Now its star, Hugh Jackman, has also departed. The long-planned stage musical based on the life of Harry Houdini has lost its leading man, with Jackman withdrawing from the role. The Australian actor has cited scheduling difficulties, saying that he wasn't able to commit to the time that the part required. In a statement sent out Monday, Scott Sanders, one of the show's producers, confirmed the actor's departure. "Hugh has been terrific to have on this part of our journey.

Scott Sanders won his third straight start, striking out a season-high 11 and scattering four hits in 6 2/3 innings as the San Diego Padres beat the Florida Marlins 5-3 Monday. Ken Caminiti again hurt Florida, driving in a run and scoring another. Caminiti is hitting .365 against the Marlins this season with nine RBIs. Sanders (4-3), who came within one strikeout of his career high, has a 4.05 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his last 20 innings. He allowed three earned runs and walked four.

Scott Sanders liked what he saw when he looked at the flags on top of Wrigley Field's scoreboard Friday. Eddie Williams and Bip Roberts just ignored them. Sanders allowed one hit in eight innings Friday to lead the San Diego Padres to a 4-2 victory over the Chicago Cubs. "He had a better than average slider," Padres manager Jim Riggleman said. "He was in the strike zone more often and that, combined with his slider, made him effective." Sanders also had the wind blowing in his favor.

Scott Sanders is tough to beat when he has his good stuff. Just ask the Montreal Expos. Sanders pitched one-hit ball over eight innings Friday night as the San Diego Padres won their sixth consecutive game, 6-0, over the Expos at Montreal. "He's got great stuff. He's poised, with a good fastball and a good changeup against lefties," said Montreal Manager Felipe Alou. "He also got us not swinging the bats very well. That's not a good combination."

Family members of those killed in the Seal Beach salon shooting two years ago urged a judge Friday to end their "agony" by ordering the accused killer to stand trial this fall. "This needs to move on and we need to be allowed to heal," said Paul Wilson, whose wife, Christy, was among the eight people slain. But the judge, though expressing sympathy to family members gathered in the Orange County courtroom, said the case was too complex to be rushed and delayed a trial until at least next year.

Scott Sanders pitched 6 2/3 innings of no-hit ball and Ken Caminiti had a grand slam and six runs batted in as the Padres defeated the Montreal Expos, 7-3, Monday night at San Diego. Darrin Fletcher broke up the no-hitter with a two-out single in the seventh. Sanders (6-4) worked eight innings, giving up two runs on three hits. He struck out eight and walked one.

There wasn't anything wrong with the San Diego Padres' offense that the Pittsburgh Pirates' pitching staff couldn't fix. Archi Cianfrocco drove in three runs and the Padres matched their season high with 19 hits Thursday night in a 12-3 victory at Pittsburgh. The Padres had scored only 15 runs in their previous seven games. "Hitters are always going to have ups and downs over a season," San Diego Manager Bruce Bochy said.

THE late John Gregory Dunne was fond of observing that writers naturally divide into two groups: those who are utterly preoccupied with the drama of their own lives and those who are fundamentally indifferent to it. In that taxonomy, Scott Russell Sanders stands firmly among the preoccupied, as his quietly -- but deeply -- moving book "A Private History of Awe" indicates.

The San Diego Padres acquired left-handed pitcher Sterling Hitchcock from the Seattle Mariners on Friday for right-hander Scott Sanders. Earlier, a proposed trade between the Padres and Boston fell through. That deal would have sent Sanders, shortstop Chris Gomez and left fielder Rickey Henderson to the Red Sox for shortstop John Valentin. Hitchcock, 25, was the ace of the Mariners' staff after Randy Johnson had back surgery, finishing with a 13-9 record. But he also had a 5.
