SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Sacramento Gold Miners linebacker Matt Jaworski and defensive end James King participated in the full practice yesterday, showing no signs of the injuries that prevented them from playing in the past five games.Missing, however, was former Washington Redskins running back Mike Oliphant, who suffered a pulled hamstring three weeks ago and is expected to be out at least an additional two to three weeks. Sacramento plays at Baltimore Sept. 10.

For more than half a century, Baltimore artist Joseph Sheppard has been exuberantly painting the human figure with a classical verve and an attention to realistic representation worthy of Europe's greatest Old Masters. Painters of that tradition long recognized the dramatic potential of depictions of the body under extreme physical stress, but it is a subject rarely seen in modern art (George Bellow's exhausted prizefighters are among the notable exceptions). Sheppard has also painted prizefighters, as well as other athletes, over the course of his long career.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Two weeks ago, the Sacramento Gold Miners were gone. Citing lack of support from fans, political leaders and the media, owner Fred Anderson said he was moving his team out of town.Last night, the Gold Miners held fan appreciation night, set off fireworks and gave away $10,000 in prizes.What's wrong with this picture?If this was the end of Sacramento's CFL experience, the swan song came on a fitting night. The Gold Miners closed out their second season against the Baltimore CFLs in a cold, steady rain at tiny Hornet Field on the campus of Cal State-Sacramento.

We are in the process of choosing a ship for an Alaska cruise this year.All the ships sound good, so we will choose on the basis of ports of call. Aside from cruising Glacier Bay, which we definitely will do, which port would you say not to miss?Of all the ports of call when I cruised Alaska a couple of years ago, the one I remember most vividly and would most like to see again is Skagway.Alaska this year celebrates the centennial of the gold rush of 1898, so Skagway is in the spotlight because it was there that shiploads of prospectors arrived from Seattle to start their long trek to the gold fields of Canada's Klondike.

David Archer is coming to Memorial Stadium tonight. That means the Baltimore CFLs can expect to see the ball in the air and deep all night."They have one of the truest passing games in the league," nose tackle Jearld Baylis said of Archer and the Sacramento Gold Miners. "They really seem like they don't want to run, they just want to pass."Archer, a former NFL quarterback, threw for 6,023 yards last year when the Gold Miners averaged 27.7 points a game. Along the way, he cultivated an image of hanging tough in the pocket.

The slogan is "Living on the Edge," and the Baltimore CFLs live by it religiously.Last night they died by it.The final blow in the Sacramento Gold Miners' improbable 30-29 victory at Memorial Stadium was a 47-yard field goal by Roman Anderson.But the path to ruin was littered with Baltimore penalties and misplays.The CFLs could have sent a season-high crowd of 42,116 home happy if Donald Igwebuike -- a model of kicking consistency this season -- hadn't slipped on a 21-yard attempt with 39 seconds left.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Call it the cleanup detail.When the Baltimore CFLs close out their first regular season here tonight against the Sacramento Gold Miners, they will tend to some unfinished business.There is an Eastern Division title waiting to be clinched -- a victory over the Gold Miners would give the 12-5 CFLs home-field advantage in the first two playoff games.Then there is the numbers game -- Mike Pringle goes for 2,000 rushing yards, Chris Armstrong bids for a touchdown record, Walter Wilson tries for a 1,000-yard receiving season, and Tracy Ham is within range of a personal passing best.

Roman Anderson's 47-yard field goal capped an improbable comeback for the Sacramento Gold Miners as they beat the Baltimore CFLs, 30-29, last night before 42,116 at Memorial Stadium in a Canadian Football League game.Anderson's heroics ruined a Baltimore rally in the fourth quarter that saw Tracy Ham threw a pair of go-ahead touchdown passes to Chris Armstrong.The CFLs played themselves into a 20-11 hole in the first half with a variety of penalties and misplays.A 46-yard pass interference call against halfback Charles Anthony set up a quick first-quarter touchdown for Sacramento.

It was the making of a monster or champion, or both.When Baltimore pounded the Winnipeg Blue Bombers into second place Saturday, it shifted the balance of power in the CFL East.It also altered the mind-set of the CFLs."People find out things about themselves in something like that," Baltimore coach Don Matthews said of Saturday's 57-10 beating of the Blue Bombers."I expect our players to play that way from now on. You either improve or get worse. I can't expect them to go back. . . . There's no reason."

Kay Stephenson went through 103 players in his first Canadian Football League season trying to find the winning mix for the Sacramento Gold Miners. A year later, the revolving door continues.In an off-season of perpetual motion, Stephenson, the Gold Miners coach, has been moving bodies at a frenetic pace. Scratch defensive backs John Wiley, Kip Texada, Walter Bailey and Tommy Henry, receivers Joe Howard-Johnson and Carl Parker, tailback Charles Thompson and defensive end Randy Thornton -- all starters or contributing players, most sent out in trades for future considerations.

Dave Archer got a prolonged taste of the NFL, but never caught a whiff of a championship atmosphere during his seven seasons there. He finally won his first pro title three years ago with the Sacramento Surge of the World League.None of that compares with the satisfaction Archer feels these days as the quarterback of the Canadian Football League's San Antonio Texans.San Antonio comes to Memorial Stadium tomorrow to face the Stallions in the Southern Division championship game. The winner advances to the Nov. 19 Grey Cup game in Regina, Saskatchewan.

The Canadian Football League's board of governors approved expansion teams for Memphis, Tenn., and Birmingham, Ala., yesterday, but put off a decision on the fate of three ailing franchises.The league set a Feb. 15 deadline to resolve crises with the Las Vegas Posse and Ottawa Rough Riders, both of whom are searching for new owners, and the Sacramento Gold Miners, who are looking for a new home.Although there were reports this week that the Posse would be relocated either to Los Angeles or Jackson, Miss.

For all of the turmoil created over expansion into the United States, there is potentially a more ominous cloud hovering on the CFL horizon.Questionable/ inconsistent/ bad (pick one) officiating is an issue that won't go away.It surfaced once again in Week 17 when the Sacramento Gold Miners lost in Edmonton on a play they insist was a game-tying touchdown, but instead was ruled an incomplete pass.A formal appeal to the league to overturn the decision was rejected when commissioner Larry Smith deemed the tape of the controversial finish inconclusive.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- As outrage mounted over the massacre of 73 Indians by gold miners, President Itamar Franco yesterday called a meeting of the National Defense Council for today to enlist the help of the military in hunting down the killers. The council, made up of civilian and military officials, advises the president on national security.The military has been hostile to Indian rights, but public calls for justice have been growing since Saturday, when the death toll in an attack on Yanomami Indians on Aug. 15 roughly doubled, to 73, making it the largest massacre of Indians in Brazil in this century.

The names have changed from time to time, but the numbers say that Baltimore's offensive line is the best in the Canadian Football League at protecting its quarterback.Last night, it needed to be that good.Tracy Ham couldn't afford to spend much time on the run. Or on his back.Ham has suffered sprains to his right ankle and left foot. Most recently, he has tried to play through the pain of a partially torn right quadriceps muscle.He may have thrown the fewest interceptions in the CFL going into last night, but he probably leads everyone in injuries.
