ARROYO GRANDE, Calif. — Only months after wrapping up a 16-year major league career, Robin Ventura could barely walk without a cane. So intense was the discomfort in his right ankle, mangled during an earlier slide and deadened with painkillers thereafter, that the former All-Star third baseman found he lingered in bed a little longer each morning, unwilling to step into the day. "I didn't go places for a long time," Ventura volunteers, "because...

Michael H. Ventura, a dentist who established and coached the golf team at Loyola College for nearly three decades, died in his sleep Monday at the Edenwald retirement community in Towson. He was 90. Dr. Ventura, the son of Italian immigrants, was born in Baltimore and raised in the 1200 block of N. Caroline St. An outstanding athlete in his youth, Dr. Ventura was a champion wrestler and boxing champion at Polytechnic Institute during the mid-1930s. He graduated from Poly in 1936 and earned a bachelor's degree in 1942 from Loyola College, where he had continued his wrestling career and was a student coach.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Dressed in blue jeans, black sweatshirt and sneakers, the governor of Minnesota strode into a packed dining hall at Concordia University and laid it on the line to the assembled voting-age students. It was only a few days before the state's citizenry was to choose between Vice President Al Gore and Texas Gov. George W. Bush for president -- or, possibly, Green Party nominee Ralph Nader in what Democratic operatives were telling Minnesotans would, for all practical purposes, be a vote for Mr. Bush, or at least a wasted vote.

Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura appointed an independent to temporarily fill the vacant seat of the late Democratic Sen. Paul Wellstone yesterday, upsetting - for the moment - the partisan makeup of the U.S. Senate. Ventura selected Dean Barkley, 52, the state's planning commissioner and an early adviser to Ventura, leaving the Senate deadlocked with 49 Republicans, 49 Democrats and two independents. Before Wellstone's death, Democrats had a one-vote edge. The political implications of appointing Barkley, a self-described fiscal conservative with a social libertarian philosophy, are not clear.

CANNON FALLS, Minn.-At a heavily attended fund-raiser for gubernatorial candidate Tim Penny here the other night, Gov. Jesse Ventura, the man Penny seeks to replace as the champion of Minnesota's political independents, was in his usual self-congratulatory form. Towering over the microphone, Ventura reminded Penny and the crowd that in his 1998 upset victory he was at 10 percent in the polls before the election against established Democratic and Republican candidates. "Don't believe the polls," he advised.

MINNEAPOLIS -- People still stop in at the small storefront in a working-class neighborhood north of downtown to pick up T-shirts bearing slogans such as "Jesse -- The Governing Body -- Ventura.""All kinds of people missed the Jesse phenomenon," said Nancy Zingale, a political scientist and executive assistant to the president of St. Thomas University in St. Paul, Minn. "They didn't believe that the enthusiasm for him was political. They thought it was celebrity and nothing else, and they were wrong."

One of two developments is almost certain by week's end: free-agent first baseman Rafael Palmeiro will accept the Orioles' five-year, $45 million offer to return or Cal Ripken will undergo his second position switch in three years.The attempt by the Orioles to retain Palmeiro was complicated yesterday by the entrance into the bidding of the free-spending Arizona Diamondbacks and the renewed interest of the Randy Johnson-less Texas Rangers.The Orioles' offer to their three-time team MVP includes $10 million deferred at no interest.

For a team that won its fourth consecutive American League pennant last season, the New York Yankees certainly have a lot of new faces this season. And two of them helped spoil a solid pitching performance last night by Orioles starter Jason Johnson. David Wells held the Orioles to four hits in 71/3 innings, and Robin Ventura broke a scoreless tie with a seventh-inning home run, leading the Yankees to a 1-0 victory before 32,142 at chilly Camden Yards. Wells isn't exactly a new face. He won 34 games for the Yankees over two seasons before getting traded to Toronto for Roger Clemens in 1999.

IT SEEMS somebody let on to Minnesota Gov. Jesse "The Body" Ventura that another local personality, Garrison Keillor, is writing a book about him, a satire about a professional wrestler named Jimmy "Big Boy" Valente who gets himself elected governor.Mr. Ventura thinks Mr. Keillor is "cheating," rather like various cartoonists, moviemakers and merchandisers the governor has bad-mouthed for "making money off of me." Mr. Ventura is also, um, writing a book about himself. He probably figures there's some remote chance that Mr. Keillor's book will be better.

ST. PAUL, Minn. - As Minnesotans grieved over the death Friday of Democratic Sen. Paul D. Wellstone in a small plane crash, state and party officials began trying yesterday to untangle the resulting confusion in the contest for the Senate seat to which he had been seeking a third term. With the election only 10 days away, Gov. Jesse Ventura said he was leaning toward appointing someone to serve until a new senator was elected, leaving Wellstone's Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party (the Democratic Party is known as the DFL in Minnesota)
