Pleased with last month's experimental series of shows by acts outside the commercial mainstream of country music, management at the Crazy Horse Steak House has decided to continue regular bookings of progressive-country acts. Fred Reiser, co-owner of the Santa Ana venue, said he was "encouraged" by the turnout for the Tuesday night shows by Will Glover, James Intveld and Chris Gaffney and the Cold Hard Facts, which each drew 175 or more to the 250-seat club.

Richard Krajicek retired Thursday because of elbow pain, ending a career in which he won Wimbledon in 1996 and was one of the hardest servers in tennis. The 31-year-old Dutchman left the sport two days after losing in the first round at a tournament in his home country. He said he had "lost the fight for my health." Krajicek said he had received extensive medical treatment and cortisone shots but that the pain in his right elbow made it difficult for him to function in daily life.

After failing to hire Oakland Raider Coach Jon Gruden, the name on most Notre Dame fans' wish list, Irish Athletic Director Kevin White returned to South Bend on Sunday with a name of a different lilt. George O'Leary. O'Leary? Notre Dame? That might work. "I'm Irish, I'm Catholic," O'Leary said. "That's a great combination at this school." No one can accuse White of not working fast.
