Charles James III has seen his golf game improve dramatically since he first became interested in the sport less than four years ago. In one sense, he might be considered one of "Chi Chi's kids."James was inspired by the play of Chi Chi Rodriguez, who rose from poverty in Puerto Rico to achieve fame and fortune as a professional golfer and since has devoted much of his charitable energy to underprivileged children in his native land."I had no golf background, but I was watching the 1991 Senior Skins game on television, and Chi Chi excited me," James said recently.

Trevor McCarthy has ridden 171 winners in his young career, but none more exciting than scoring with Chi Chi's Pride in Thursday's third race at Laurel Park. At the break, the 4-year-old gelding bumped with Carnbrea'sdestiny, causing McCarthy to lose his irons and forcing him to ride the entire race with his feet out of the stirrups. At the top of the stretch, Chi's Chi Pride was fifth but rallied between rivals and got up at the wire to beat Carnbrea'sdestiny by a nose. The horse, trained by John Salzman Jr., paid $10.80.

MONACA, Pa. - A bright yellow billboard calls out to passers-by - "Hepatitis Claims?" - and displays a law firm's name and phone number along Route 60, just south of this western Pennsylvania town. A few months ago, the nation's worst outbreak of hepatitis A killed three people and sickened 660 others in the vicinity of this town near Pittsburgh. More than 9,000 frightened people flocked to hospitals for tests and inoculations. When the illness was traced to a Chi-Chi's here, the restaurant voluntarily closed its doors Nov. 2. The source turned out to be tainted green onions from Mexico, not poor health practices at the restaurant.

''That was a good place,'' my 3-year-old said without prompting as we left Chi-Chi's in Timonium.Her older sister was slightly more explicit.''It was medium food,'' she had decided.That is to say, not fast food, which you get at a counter, or ''slow food,'' which means waiting to order and having to listen to boring adults between courses.When you think about it, ''medium food'' seems like an appropriate label for Chi-Chi's Tex-Mex fare.Nobody would ever confuse it with haute cuisine, but it's not bad either.

A Calvert County man was charged yesterday after a car plowed into a crowded Chi-Chi's restaurant in Glen Burnie during a celebration of Mexico's national holiday, injuring three people. The incident began Friday night with an argument between a man and his girlfriend in the restaurant in the 8000 block of Ritchie Highway, according to an Anne Arundel County police spokesman. Sgt. Edward Bergin said the boyfriend left the restaurant, got into his 1993 Lexus ES 300, lined up to the entrance, spun his tires and rammed through a double set of glass doors about 10: 45 p.m. The car continued about five or six feet into the restaurant, according to general manager John McVey.

Nobody would ever confuse Chi-Chi's with haute cuisine, but the portions certainly are large, the prices reasonable and the atmosphere family friendly. The folks who work there are accommodating and skilled at managing a crowd. And a crowd is what Chi-Chi's often has. The children's menu has six offerings with tacos the only one that is even remotely Tex-Mex, although the mini-pizza is made on a flour tortilla.

That Juan "Chi Chi" Rodriguez can strike a golf ball with precision and create numbers that make an impressive scoreboard picture have been well established. It also carries a degree of importance that he can make all the shots and even entertain with an enormous splash of showmanship.But nothing compares to the personal qualities of this humble man from the sugar cane fields of Puerto Rico who fought off dire poverty and ultimately touched the stars. He's at the top of the leader board when it comes to evaluating character, citizenship and caring about others.
