The most dramatic revamping of the City Council in 70 years is about to take place as 12-year incumbent Irv Pickler, former Mayor Fred Hunter, and former city manager Bob D. Simpson attend their final council meeting as members Tuesday. The city will have a largely inexperienced council when new members Lou Lopez and Bob Zemel are sworn in later this month. A fifth member will then have to be appointed by the council or chosen in a special election.

This post has been updated. See below for details. Marcia Wallace, who played Bart's fourth-grade teacher Edna Krabappel on Fox's animated comedy "The Simpsons" and Bob Newhart's wisecracking receptionist Carol Kester on the classic 1972-78 CBS sitcom "The Bob Newhart Show," has died at the age of 70. Wallace died at home in Los Angeles Friday night, surrounded by friends and family. Contrary to earlier reports that she died of complications from breast cancer, her son, Michael Hawley, told the Times Saturday afternoon that she had been in failing health for the last several months and died due to complications of pneumonia.

So Gerald Uelmen (Commentary, May 10) found the circumstances surrounding Justice Janice Rogers Brown's appointment to be "a sickening display of hypocrisy and cynicism at every level." Funny, but almost everyone I know felt the same way about his machinations as well as those of his co-counsels during the O.J. Simpson trial. BOB KERTESZ Los Angeles

The last round of the PGA Tour Qualifying tournament, scheduled to be played at La Purisima Golf Course near Lompoc, was canceled Tuesday because of rain, the first time that has happened since the 108-hole format began in 1982. The tournament was shortened to 90 holes because the course was unplayable after two daysof rain, which meant that 49 players at even par or better earned PGA Tour cards for 1997. Allen Doyle and Jimmy Johnson had the best scores in the five rounds at eight-under 352.

Forget Kurt Cobain, Joey Ramone, Sid Vicious, Madonna and Bart Simpson: Bob Mould's got more honest-to-badness punk in him than those five combined. Without resorting to any of the attitude's usual affectations, Mould and his new band, Sugar, showed Friday at the Palladium what sort of music results from true dis affectation.

Paul Azinger's last-hole bogey enabled Fred Couples to regain a share of the lead Saturday after the third round of the Doral Open at Miami. Azinger, who got off to an eagle-birdie start for the second day in a row, held a one-stroke lead but had missed the green on the final hole when the national television cameras ended their coverage for the day. Azinger finished with a two-under-par 70 and a 54-hole total of 204, 12 under par on Doral's Blue Monster course.

Tom Watson, a non-winner on the PGA Tour since 1987, returned to the event that produced his first victory and fought through strong winds Thursday to take the first-round lead in the $2-million Western Open at Lemont, Ill. "It was a long time ago, but I'll never forget that first victory," said Watson, whose 1974 Western win began his decade of dominance on the tour. "I feel good about my game, pretty good for a 45-year-old golfer. I'd like to win another tournament--soon."

The Lakers came out roaring against the Phoenix Suns Sunday, quickly building an 11-0 lead. Fortunately, CBS was there to cover it. The network chose to leave the Atlanta golf tournament playoff between Scott Simpson and Bob Tway and go to Phoenix for the start of the basketball game. It was a good move by CBS, although golf fans no doubt didn't appreciate missing the one-hole playoff. However, CBS kept viewers informed, although showing how Simpson won it hole required an excessively long break.

The February issue of Spy magazine includes a none-too-flattering look at how rich L.A. parents scheme to get their kids into exclusive power kindergartens. Singled out for a good thrashing is the Westside's very own Crossroads School, described by Spy as a "funky campus overlooking the Santa Monica Freeway" with a non-traditional program that has attracted the children of Barbra Streisand, O.J. Simpson, Bob Dylan and Robert DeNiro.
