Statesman Journal Salem, Oregon Thursday, July 27, 1989 Trail Blazers' coach wants to make more changes Blazers' target is another guard By Reid English The Statesman Journal It has been The Summer of Change for the Portland Trail Blazers, but coach Rick Adelman said Wednesday that there could be more to come. "We could use another guard," he said between sessions of a girls basketball camp at Willamette University. "We need Past stars open meet in Eugene The Associated Press EUGENE, Ore. - Many of the shining stars from track and field's past will be in Eugene today for the eighth World Veterans' Championships. The biennial meet, in the United States for the first time since its inception in 1975, is expected , to draw 4,951 athletes from 58 countries. Competition runs through Aug. 6. The meet is being billed as the largest track and field event in history, with the number of competitors expected to eclipse the 4,817 who competed in the 1987 veterans' meet in Melbourne, Aus- , tralia. Women 35 years of age and over and men 40 and over will compete in the championships, with big names from the past featured prominently. Meet organizer Tom Jordan said they will include Bob Richards, the Olympic pole vault gold medalist in 1952 and 1956 after winning the bronze in 1948; Kip Keino of Kenya, the 1972 Olympic steeplechase gold medalist; Al Oerter, who won the Olympic gold in the discus in 1956, 1960, 1964 and 1968; and Lee Evans, the 1968 Olympic 400-meter gold medalist. Most competitions will be at the university, where plans call for five pole vault pits, three long jumptriple jump runways, five shot put rings, four discus rings, four high jump aprons and four javelin runways at Hayward Field and adjacent facilities. Other events will be at Silke Field in Springfield, with cross country events at Lane Community College and the 10K road race . and racewalking events on the steets of Eugene. Most events are free to the public, with plans calling for admission charges of $2 for adults and $1 for children under 12 only on July 30 and Aug. 5, Big leaguers win again, 9-1 Salem's Big League All-Star baseball team is one win away from qualifying for the four-team Division I tournament, which begins Monday in Salem.

Although the Blazers are hoping to have Byron Irvin in rookie camp next week, Adelman said that he would like to acquire another shooting guard. Irvin, 6-foot-6, was the Blazers' first-round pick in last month's draft. The Blazers would like to sign a free agent, but the only two available that interest them are Craig Hodges of Chicago and Trent Tucker of New York. Portland went after Sedale Threatt of Seattle, but the Sonics re-signed him Tuesday.

Oakland wins series final By Mike Terry Gannett News Service OAKLAND California's Angels lost the final battle in the July Showdown, but they more than survived the war. Not even Oakland's closing 9-5 victory Wednesday before 44,588 at the Oakland Coliseum could mar the Angels' success. California entered the Bay Area as the American League West's top team and left it the same way, one game ahead of the Athletics. Ron Hassey's single off reliever Rich Monteleone broke a 5-5 tie, spurred a four-run eighth, stopped California's seven-game winning streak and kept the A's from being swept three straight. Matt Young (1-3), the fourth of five pitchers, worked a third of an inning to get his first win since July 17, 1987. Trout get By Henry Miller The Statesman Journal A timber company is making quite a splash on the South Fork of the Siletz River. Boise Cascade has donated manpower and equipment for a Salmon Trout Enhancement Project to be completed early next week by volunteers from four chapters of the Association of Northwest Steelheaders. Using loaders and trucks, the timber company moved several hundred boulders, 40 root wads and 60 to 70 logs from its former log-pond dam at Valsetz which was torn out a year ago because of safety concerns to the project Hot spot: Fishing What's hot: The regular monthly meeting of the Oregon Bass and Panfish Club. When: 7:30 p.m today. Where: The PGE service center auditorium, 3700 SE 17th Ave., Portland. Program: Alan Olsen, tournament director for West Coast Bass Inc., will talk about fishing for small-mouth bass on the lower Columbia River. He will talk about how to find fish and what tackle to use. Costs: Admission is free. Refreshments will be served. Who should go: Anyone who is interested in warmwater fishing or in finding out more about the Bass and the Blazers' 6-foot-3 third-round choice in the 1986 draft. He led his native Yugoslavia to the European Championships last month. Petrovic, who once scored 63 points in a game, signed a four-year contract with Real Madrid after the Seoul Olympics. However, his future as a Blazer remains questionable because of litigation in his contract. Bucky Buckwalter, Blazers' vice president for basketball operations, said: "We'd like to get him, but we don't know how long it will be before we get this Reds' streak reaches 10 games Page 4D "It's nice to see any sort of crooked number in the win column, something other than the goose egg," he said. "It's not the finale for the recovery, but at least it's a step." Mike Witt (7-8), charged with seven of the runs in seven innings, took the loss. It all unraveled in the fourth inning, after the Angels had taken a 3-1 lead. Dave Parker led off with a bloop single to left that might have been caught, but shortstop Dick Schofield and left fielder Chili Davis both hesitated. Mark McGwire followed with a boost from timber site. The boulders have been placed in the water to make weirs to form pools in a quarter-mile section of the river. Saturday and Sunday, volunteer workers will anchor the logs and root bundles in the pools using cable and epoxy. Early next week, Boise workers will go in with equipment to shore up the weirs to trap water to form the pools. The site is about a quarter-mile from where the North and South forks of the Siletz join. The Siletz River feeds into Siletz Bay near Kernville, south of Lincoln City. The pools will trap gravel for spawning, and the logs and root club meeting Panfish Club.

Parker and McGwire scored to make it 3-3. One out later, Ron Hassey singled to right, sending Henderson to third. Then Tony Phillips hit a sharp grounder to second that looked to be a sure double-play ball, but Johnny Ray chose to throw home. Henderson slid under catcher Bill Schroeder's tag, and while Schroeder argued with home plate umpire Al Clark, Hassey sprinted to third. Mike Gallego flied to right to score Hassey, and the A's were up, 5-3. Schroeder said he wasn't expecting the ball, but he also thought he made the tag before Henderson slid across the plate.

"It's definitely going to improve fish-rearing there," said Gene Stewart, district fish biologist with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife office in Newport. "It will provide more m-stream cover for salmon and steel-head and some cutthroat trout." Bill Dryden, chief forester for northwestern Oregon for Boise, said: "In that reach of the river, it had very little structure. It was Today's spotlight: Bo Jackson KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Bo Jackson, troubled since last month by a thigh injury, was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday by the Kansas City Royals.

The Spanish Federation claims there isn't a buyout in his contract." Adelman also said that he wanted to find a back-up point guard, although the club was trying to sign Danny Young, last year's backup. With Monday's acquisition of Wayne Cooper, Adelman said he thinks that the Blazers have a solid front line. The possibility of rotating Buck Williams, Kevin Duckworth and Cooper at power forward and center exists, although the coach didn't rule out using Mark Bryant. aDem mind game Dodgers, Enno ground Hawks for 4-2 victory By Capi Lynn The Statesman Journal A talk about mental approach with manager Tom Beyers and pitching coach Burt Hooton went to Clayton Enno's head. Enno, a left-hander who was winless in five starts, threw six innings of one-hit ball to lead the Salem Dodgers to a 4-2 Northwest League victory Wednesday against the Boise Hawks at Chemeketa Field. Beyers said, "To me, the thing I'm happiest about is the way Clayton came out tonight. "We had a talk with him during the week about his mental approach to the game, and, other than that one inning, he seemed to be in control of himself. "He's got good stuff; that's not the problem." Enno retired the side in each of the first three innings before struggling in the fourth. After lead-off batter Reggie Williams reached on a throwing error, Enno walked Jack Malone. Enno got Tim Wallace to fly out before walking Oreste Marrero to load the bases. After a fielder's choice grounder by Darrell MacMillan and a double by Ruben Rodriguez drove in two unearned runs, Enno got Tom Griffith to fly out to end the inning with runners on first and third. Beyers said "In a way, I'm kind of glad it happened. He got himself in a jam, and he got himself out of it. That could have turned into a potential big inning, and he showed me something getting out of it." Enno (1-3) was happy with his performance. "I concentrated more, and I kept my cool," he said. "Usually, when I walk somebody or something goes wrong, I let it get to me. But not tonight. Everything was working good, that's why I have to remember this night, so I remember what it feels like." company's efforts mostly bedrock and cobble. It's the biggest STEP project I'm aware of in the area." Dryden estimated that Boise spent about $12,000 paying for men and equipment. Three loaders, two dump trucks and a clam bucket loader were used during eight days. The timber company donated labor from an average of four people a day to the project, he said. Blanchard Smith, president of the Central Coast Chapter of the steelheaders, said projects such as the one on the Siletz and an earlier project on the Luckiamute with Boise, bode well for the future. since June 10 because of a wrist injury. Jackson, who went on the disabled list retroactive to Tuesday, had been scheduled to start Tuesday night against the Red Sox in Boston, but after taking batting practice and running in the outfield he told manager John Wathan that his left thigh tightened up, and he didn't feel he could run. He pulled a quadriceps muscle June 24 against New York, and the injury has bothered him off and on since. "But we've got to develop the younger guys and see how much they can help us," he said. Regarding the Blazers' training camp move to Willamette University, Adelman said that he wanted to avoid outside distractions that the club encountered last year at Green Meadows Athletic Club in Vancouver, Wash. "I thought we needed a change with our new group," he said. "I wanted more control over them. I don't want it to be as hectic with people milling about." wdgds Joe DeVeraStatesman Journal Clayton Enno held Boise to one hit in six innings. Enno struck out seven and walked four before yielding to Jorge Pascual in the seventh. Pascual, who earned his fourth save, allowed four hits, walked one and struck out two. Trailing 2-1, the Dodgers had a three-run rally in the fifth inning sparked by back-to-back triples by Jorge Alvarez and Don Carroll. Jose Perez led off the inning with a single and scored on Alvarez' shot to right centerfield. On the next pitch, Carroll lined one to left center to score Alvarez. Garrett Beard, the Northwest League's RBI leader with 36, followed with a sacrifice fly. to right field, scoring Carroll for the game's final score. The victory gave the Dodgers (23-16) a 3-2 edge in the series. "We didn't play too well the first three games," Beyers said. "We were lucky to win the first one, but we came out the last two nights and played some good baseball. We made the plays when our backs were against the wall." And he said he would like to see other timber or land-owning companies get involved in similar projects. "It's, I believe, just the beginning," Smith said. "We really appreciate their leadership in this area." Dryden agreed. "I think it's a longterm relationship," he said. "The discussion now is to do a similar project in 1990 on the North Fork of the Siletz. "The fact we're using a lot of material out of the old dam, which at one time was kind of blocking fish passage, is kind of poetic justice."
