While the name John Gilbert Collison Sr. has been largely forgotten today, his invention of the artificial steel hip ball more than 60 years ago has given him orthopedic immortality. His invention, manufactured in Baltimore in his Falls Road facility, has saved lives and given relief and hope to patients worldwide who suffered from fractured hips or severe arthritis. At a time when a fractured hip was almost a certain death sentence, his revolutionary invention gave people hope and the ability that they would regain and live normal, pain-free lives.

Ula Clyde Collison was never at a loss for words or things to do. There was always a joke to tell or a horseshoe to pitch; a flower to plant or yarn to spin; a prank to pull or game to umpire. He could do them all with the best of them.Mr. Collison, 88, died Saturday of heart failure, said his daughter, Barbara Lamar Moyer of Guam. He suffered from Parkinson's disease and apparently became disoriented and fell down an embankment near his Annapolis home.An athlete and Annapolis sports legend for more than 40 years, Mr. Collison's accomplishments include four decades of coaching youth sports; perennial all-star in the city's adult fast-pitch softball league; horseshoe champion; and golfing gold-medal winner.

They were part of two rich recruiting pipelines Roy Williams had developed in his first decade at Kansas. Nick Collison and Kirk Hinrich had followed Raef LaFrentz from Iowa. Drew Gooden was the latest in a line of Californians that began with Adonis Jordan and eventually included Paul Pierce, Scot Pollard and Jacque Vaughn. Together, they were going to bring the Jayhawks back to the national spotlight that had begun to fade in Lawrence with two straight second-round defeats in the NCAA tournament.

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The season appeared in jeopardy for Kansas last night. The end of Kirk Hinrich's marvelous career as a Jayhawk seemed to be heading for its conclusion -- another disappointing defeat in the NCAA tournament. Nick Collison wouldn't allow either to happen in the West Regional semifinal at the Arrowhead Pond. Carrying the second-seeded Jayhawks on his broad shoulders, Collison made several huge plays down the stretch in a career-high 33-point, 19-rebound performance that lifted Kansas to a 69-65 victory over third-seeded Duke.

After weeks of evading animal control officers, a wallaby that may have spent months wandering the woods of Anne Arundel County was caught Monday night by a couple in Severn. The brown-and-white marsupial - resembling a small kangaroo and typically found in the outback of Australia - was captured by Ken and Jean Lauer when they lured it into a dog cage set up on their 2-acre property near the Millersville landfill. Jean Lauer said she and her husband had been feeding the creature a mix of apples, corn and specially ordered "kangaroo pellets" since moving into their house on Terry Lee Way five weeks ago. Their neighbors, she said, had seen the wallaby in the area as early as May. As soon as the Lauers captured the wallaby Monday, they called Debbie Collison, the owner of a petting farm in Davidsonville who owns another wallaby.

NEW ORLEANS - If you believe Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim, Kansas' agonizing night at the free-throw line in Monday's national-championship game - an 81-78 Syracuse win - wasn't a matter of fate or good luck for the Orangemen. It was the result, Boeheim said with a wink, of good coaching. "We tried to foul as much as we could anytime they got the ball inside," said Boeheim, who won his first national championship in his third appearance in the title game. "[Kansas forward] Jeff Graves is a 38 percent free-throw shooter, and I think he went 2-for-7.

County animal officials, who apparently made an unsuccessful attempt at capturing the wallaby last weekend, could not be reached late yesterday to confirm when the animal was first reported in the region.
