Just take a " trip to his hometown of Leeds, Ala., and visit ' his "Granny." "Charles talks a heap, and I like to talk, too," said Barkley's grandmother, Johnnie . Mickens. "People say they know where Charles got it." Like her grandson, Mickens, 66, isn't shy about expressing opinions. On the media: "A lot of reporters I've talked to I wouldn't give , the time of day to now." Or on NBA referees' treatment of her grandson: "He gets bad calls. Because he's so outspoken, they don't give ' him nothing." Of course, Mickens has no qualms about scolding him, either. "I told him to stop swearing, because they've got the camera dead on your mouth. He tried to tell me he didn't (swear), but I knew what he said. I can read lips." But, she admits, "I have a tendency to s swear, too. It just comes out natural."

Include your name, addreis and a day-Jtime telephone number, i Eight local players drafted By Jim Inqhram Sun Sports Writer Eight area players were taken in baseball's amateur draft held June 3 and June 4. Five of the players were high school athletes this spring. Eisenhower and Hes-peria high schools each had two players drafted with the other coming out of Red-lands High School. Heading the high school contingent is right-handed pitcher David Cooper from Hesperia. Cooper was taken in the fifth round be Seattle and signed last weekend. "It's a big relief finally getting it (signing) over with," said Cooper, who earlier signed a letter of intent to play at Cal State Fullerton next year. Cooper's teammate, first baseman Dirk Lewellan, was picked by the Montreal Expos. But Cooper said that Lewellan has indicated he'll go to Mount San Antonio College in Walnut instead of signing. Cooper was one of the most sought-after players in San Bernardino County this spring. He helped lead the Scorpions to a second-place finish in the Citrus Belt League and a berth in the CIF Division I quarterfinals where they lost to eventual champion Esperanza. Three other CBL players were drafted. Eisenhower, which finished fourth in the CBL, had right-handed pitcher Larry Karpinski taken by Philadelphia, and left-handed pitcher Michael Bustamonte drafted by Houston. The other local, high school player taken was catcher Peter Jenkins of Redlands. He was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers, but according to Terriers coach Bob Ramirez, Jenkins will attend Riverside Community College. "Peter is leaning toward going to RCC," Ramirez said. "Whatever he does' I'm sure he'll do well. He's a fierce competitor, Three players from local junior colleges were also drafted. San Bernardino Valley College third baseman Brian Sosa, a Yucaipa High School alumnus, was taken by Seattle, and right-handed pitcher Derek Mix, also of SBVC, was picked up by San Diego. . Center fielder Gregory Martinez of 'Barstow College was taken by the Brewers. Birthdays Are Wonderful Know omona with a Birthdiy coming up? With them your beat with a Sun "Happy Birthday" ad!

The U.S. Golf Association unveiled some long-range plans Wednesday, awarding the 1999 U.S. Open to the Pinehurst Country Club and the 2000 Open to Pebble Beach Golf Links. It will be the first Open for North Carolina's Pinehurst and it will be played on the No. 2 course, which also is the site 1994 U.S. Senior Open. The Open at California's Pebble Beach will be the fourth. The course, which was designated Wednesday as the site of the 1999 U.S. Amateur, also hosted Opens in 1972, '82 and '92. Tom Kite won the tournament last year. USGA vice president Reg Murphy also announced that the 1997 U.S. Amateur will be held at Cog Hill Golf Club in Lemont, 111., and the 1997 Walker Cup between the United States, Britain and Ireland will be played at Quaker Ridge Golf Club in Scar-sdale, N.Y. Cog Hill 4, also known as Dubsbread, is the site of the PGA Tour's Western Open. Quaker Ridge has never been the site of a USGA event. DIFFERENT TEST: If he wasn't practicing for the U.S. Open, 16-year-old Ted Oh would have been sit-' ting in a Torrance high school taking a Spanish final. i Instead, the second-youngest player to Cal league make the Open field had a hectic final day of preparation. He appeared on the NBC's Today program around 6:30 a.m. EDT and walked to the driving range, where he spotted Tom Kite. He asked the defending champion if he could play a practice round with him. "Mr. Kite" didn't say no. "He hit it good today," Kite said. "I don't know how he plays normally, but he played well today." Oh, who had to get past local and sectional qualifying to make the tournament, said he enjoyed the round with Kite and Davis Love III. "He said just don't call me Mr.," Oh said. "He said I could call him Tom, but I still called him Mr. Kite." Oh has played four practice rounds since arriving here, including a "par round" Wednesday. Born in Korea, Oh and his family moved to the United States nine years ago. The high school sophomore did not start playing golf until six years ago. SECURITY MEASURES: Security has been increased for this U.S. Open in wake of the recent stabbing of tennis star Monica Seles. USGA vice president Reg Murphy said there will be a large number of uniformed officers on the course and the 900 volunteer marshals have undergone extensive training. sllv THIS SAT. r&PMfisa JUNE19TH i.i SEE THE GREATEST 40 RACERS WEST OF THE MISSISSIPPI! , Including Defending Champion Ron Hornaday Jr., Doug George, Ray Hopper Jr., Lance Hopper, Plus Local Stars Ron Peterson, Dave Scheidecker, Glen Cummings, At Sadler and Many More!

Adamson (3-3) pitched the Mavericks' first complete-game shutout of the year, limiting the Riverside Pilots to seven hits and leading the Mavericks to a 2-0 victory in front of 3,720 fans at Maverick Stadium. Adamson struck out seven, walked none and picked off Craig Griffey when Griffey got too far off first base in the eighth inning. He also got a pair of double plays behind him and catcher Sean Gousha threw out Jesus Marquez trying to steal second in the sixth inning. Those were the Mavericks' examples of a "back-to-business" attitude they displayed after clinching the division title Tuesday night. "I wasn't even thinking about that," Adamson said. "I just wanted to take care of winning; take care of business." "You can see the guys didn't give up," Mavericks interim manager Carlos Ponce said. "They had good defense. That's the way we've been playing. "We didn't hit, but today was our pitching that did it." The Mavericks (42-23) only needed four hits to edge the second-place Pilots (34-30). They got the game's only runs in the second inning. Ramon Martinez's run-scoring double was followed by a sacrifice fly by Gousha. Adamson did the rest, frustrating the Pilots with an effective slider. He's allowed the Pilots only 11 hits in his two outings against them. Derek Lowe (4-4) suffered the loss, despite a solid outing. He allowed four hits in seven innings, striking out five and walking three. The Mavericks won without starting center fielder Carl Everett, who will sit out the rest of the first half, according to Ponce. Everett suffered a minor strain of a quadriceps muscle Tuesday after tangling with Riverside first baseman Fred McNair as Everett beat out an attempted double play. Mavarlckt notes The Mavericks began selling California League playoff tickets Wednesday. Games 1 and 2 are Sept. 3 and Sept. 4 at Maverick Stadium. Season ticket holders have the right to reserve their seats for the games. Fans who wish to buy divisional playoff tickets can get a "playoff package" for Games 1 and 2 for $10. For information, call (619) 246-6287. ... By orders of the Florida Marlins, no champagne celebration was allowed Tuesday for the Mavericks after they clinched the first-half Southern Division title. The Mavericks are an affiliate of the Marlins. "It's no big deal," catcher Sean Gousha said. "We've got more work to do." . . . The Mavericks don't play today. Andres Berumen (8-2) will start against San Bernardino at 7:05 p.m. Friday at Maverick Stadium. McNall: Gretzky reports untrue Gannett News Service Kings owner Bruce McNall says he does not believe reports saying Wayne Gretzky wants as much as $10 million a season to play with the Kings. "I can't imagine he would ask for that, given what he knows about our business," McNall said. Gretzky currently makes $3 million a season. McNall repeated he was willing to make Gretzky the NHL's highest-paid player. Pittsburgh Penguins center Mario Lemieux makes about $6 million. - HLIU V v .
