ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Here's what you'd like to see during Game I of the NBA Finals tonight: Shaquille O'Neal playing Hakeem Olajuwon straight up, one on one, with no rnessy double teams It's not going to happen, say Houston coach Rudy Tomjanovich and Orlando coach Brian Hill. Neither is willing to risk letting his superstar cover the other team’s superstar Witt tout some help. “That would be interesting, wouldn’t it?" Tomjanovich said “There'd be a lot of mad 3-pomt shooters, though." Hill said tie might agree to a double-team moratorium, but not for long. “The first time Hakeem got the ball," he said, "I'd have to raise my hand and say, ‘I lied.'” Hill took a lesson from how Olajuwon burned San Antonio’s David Robinson when the league MVP tried to cover last year's MVP one on one. Olajuwon averaged 35 3 points and 12.5 rebounds in the Western Conference finals. "I marveled at the way he played,” Hill said. "In two of those games, I just got up from my sofa, and even mentioned to my team here in practice, that I've never seen a guy play better." Another reason not to let these two guard each other unaided is they like each other so well. O’Neal has so much admiration for Olajuwon he once sneaked in the back door of the HernisFair Arena in San Antonio to get his autograph. Landa Golf tees up new course of action Computer system to help track sales and traffic at local course By THOMAS GODLEY Sports Editor Landa Park Golf Course is known as one of the best golfing bargains in the area. For an annual fee of $275, some of the more avid members have been known to come away paying about $1.50 a day for 18-holes of play. But while local players smile at the deal, city officials raised their eye brows when the municipal golf course showed a projected $26,000 loss in 1994-95. Officials pointed to the closure of two greens, fewer "winter Texans" and bad weather as possible reasons for the financial setback. City Manager Mike Shands was among the first to say the the golf course should be expected to show a profit or at least break even. Questions arose as to where the problem stemmed, and the answer was difficult to narrow. With a new computer system that will keep close track of inventory and traffic, the city is looking to get a clearer picture of operations at the course. "This is not necessarily set up to fix a problem but to allow for a greater degree of accountability," Shands said. "It is a way to get a better indicator of expenditures and revenues, for example, on merchandise sales, green fees, cart fees and the number of rounds of golf being played. "It will give us a way to track inventory and satisfy our auditors and the public. Ultimately the data may be used to determine the direction of operations at the course in the future."

Red Sox take little League season title From staff reports 'Hic Red Sox came from behind to heat the Rockies in extra innings 13-9 and captured the American Little league Championship in the 8 to 9-year-old division Monday night. ’Hic teams battled to a 9-9 tie aller *ix innings and went scoreless iii the seventh inning. The Red Sox scored four runs in the eighth lo take the final lead The game lasted over 2 hours and 45 minutes. "It was a real ham burner," said Red Sox Coach Jeff Smith. "T he team couldn't have been more evenly match." Facing a 6-3 deficit, Red Sox Manager Stan Witek inserted son Blaine Wack in relief of pitcher Tyler Smith with no outs at the mound. Witek held the Rockies batters lo three run the rest of the way to bolster the rally and earn the win. The-Rockies, who finished the regular season at 9-4, had reached the championship by bealing the Padres 6-3. The Red Sox, who were 11-2 for the season, edged the Blue Jays 5-4 to advance. "We told the kids they were going to be champions wheeler they win or lose," Coach Witek said "Fortunately it turned out lo be a win It was a very entertaining ball game the whole way." In the sixth inning, with lite Rockies leading 6-8, Chad Tuch got an in-thc-park hit (fiat cleared (fie bases lo give the Red Sox the lead 9-8 Rockies pitcher Bradley Bevil, who went six innings before getting mandatory relief from pitcher Joel Soap, tied the game in the sixth by reaching first and stealing three bases lo cross home plate. Nick Haley, Tyler Smith, Blaine Witek and Chad Tuch scored the winning runs in the eighth inning. "As a city-owned and operated golf course, we have a greater responsibility to the public." The computer system is expected to be working in the first week of July. Newly-hired golf pro and manager Chris Acker said the computer will be the biggest change for local golfers. The current system of signing-in by hand will be replaced by membership cards with personal identification numbers logged into the computer. Landa Golf currently has about 230 members who pay an annual fee, including an estimated 150 individual, 40 family and 17 junior memberships. Tee times will remain arranged on a first-come first-serve basis. Acker said turnout for playing times has been steady and the morning sign-up system has been able to accommodate “Landa Golf Course gets about 70-75,000 rounds of golf played per year. That’s a lot of traffic for a town the size of New Braunfels. — Chris Acker that. He added that golfers must show up in person to reserve tee times and call -in reservations are not accepted. The computer system will come in handy this summer when the course hits its busiest time of the season. "Landa Golf Course gets about 70-75,000 rounds of golf played per year. That’s a lot of traffic for a town the size of New Braunfels," Acker said. "It's not too bad right now, but it will get crowded during the peak months," he said. That's something we deal with." Local linksters still consider in Landa Golf a clean, well-maintained course. Much of that credit is given to the staff and groundskeeper Fernando Gutierrez whose crews spend long hours keeping the course in top playing shape. Stark Ambrose, 8!, is one of those golfers who keeps coming back because "the course is one of the best in the area." "I've been coming out her since 1978 and they've made worlds of improvements," said Ambrose, a Landa Golf member who plays about twice a week. "It's a fine course." With the new computer system, Acker foresees additional improvements and efficiency. "It's an entirely new system that will have us starting from scratch," said Acker, an assistant pro at the course for 14 years.. "It's a challenge, and I'm linking forward to it."

Texas beaches offer prime option for fishing Fishermen who don't have access to a boat are often frustrated with their options for fishing. There are lots of places where you can fish from the shore. The problem is that the fishing isn't good most of the time. When it is good, it's loo crowded to realy enjoy yourself. If you fall into tins category, then you'll probably be interested in Keith Warren great fishing opportunities on our Texas beaches. Spring and fall are probably the best times lo beach fish. The surf is relatively flat, water is in good shape, and best of all there are lots of fish lo be caught. Heavy weight thick bodied trout and redlish travel the ever changing guts and ditches paralleling the beach in search of bail fish. A fish call whiting is the most common catch. Tins small (10-15 inch) fish is great tasting and there are no hag limits. Has, dead whiting will work lo catch anything from redlish to shark. My suggestion for those who would like to take a surf fishing adventure along the Texas coast is to head south of Corpus Christi. This area is remote, requiring four-wheel-drive vehicles. Take everything you need, because there is nothing on the beach for over 60 miles but sand, a few fishermen and lots of fish. This part of the coast is called the Padre Island National Seashore. Make sure and tell someone when to expect you off the beach and hack to safe area. This part of the beach is tough. If vehicles break down or get stuck, you may be there for a while until help arrives. There is one guide that specializes in surf fishing. He provides everything from the vehicle to all tackle and equipment. His specialty is making sure clients catch fish. Contact Bill San-difer at 512-937-8446 for information on Padre Island National Seashore. (Keith Warren is the host of "The Texas Angler" television show which broadcasts statewide. Catch "The Texas Angler" on Friday mornings at 10:30 and Sunday mornings at 11:30 on HSE. For more infornuition, contact The Texas Angler at 210-625-3474.)

Carlson, who started only five games last season because of shoulder and knee injuries, failed his physical and was released by the Oilers prior to the start of the team’s mini-camp on Tuesday. It was a drastic turnaround from a year ago when Carlson, after waiting patiently eight seasons as Warren Moon’s backup, was cast in the starting role. It didn’t last past the season opener against Indianapolis. “I told him today I don’t know if I’ve ever had a relationship with a player that’s turned so upside down,” general manager Floyd Reese said. “At this point last year, I had no doubt in my mind he was going to be the guy that would lead us for a number of years. “All of a sudden he got hurt and here we are today.” Herald-Zeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL Rockies pitcher Javier Gonzales hurls a fastball across the plate against the Pirates Tuesday evening in New Braunfels SrJJr. League Baseball.
