Late last Thursday afternoon Arnold Palmer took a look at his crystal ball and predicted that it would take a score of 275 or lower to win the Houston Champion International golf tournament. Arnie, the all-time money winner on the Professional Golf Assn. trail, with most of the 30,000 spectators who witnessed Sunday's dramatic climax. Docking at his heels, came from one shot off the pace to go one shot in front after nine holes, blew his feud and then came charging back with a birdie on the final hole to sack up the championship that tested the hearts of the strong and feeble. [...] was George Archer with a 277. Palmer, who had rounds of 79-68-68-69 over the par-71 course, actually won the tournament on the final hole when he canned a 12-footer for a birdie three to put all the pressure on Dickinson, one hole back and the leader going into the final round. Palmer said, "You had to be awfully careful about going to the left on account of the water on several holes, for the pins were placed against the water side of the course and you just couldn't take any chances," the Latrobe, Pa., walloper said.

In Pasadena, for example, the mayor who was returned to office by 3,599 voters was the driving force behind a change in the City Council structure that a federal judge found intentionally diluted the influence of the city's Latino majority. A year ago, just 2,744 Pearland residents - 4.3 percent of the fast-growing city's registered voters - cast ballots in an election that included three City Council seats and three school trustee positions, according to the Community Impact newspaper. In Friendswood, 9 percent of voters - 2,422 residents - cast ballots for two city council seats and two sales tax increases. A May election, he said, "reduces the voter pool down to the people who pay attention to those more localized issues, and it may be more likely to preserve the status quo." On Wednesday evening, about 40 people sat on folding chairs in the Area 5 Democrats' office in a Pasadena strip center to hear remarks from candidates.
