Adrian Belew has never been a typical guitar hero. Where other six-string superstars owe their reputations to slash-and-burn virtuosity, Belew built his on sound alone -- a collection of electronically altered shrieks and moans that fell somewhere between Hendrixian splendor and feeding time at the zoo.Needless to say, he was instantly adored by rock's intelligentsia. First Frank Zappa snatched him from the club circuit, then David Bowie snapped him up. His slippery, screaming leads lent drama to Talking Heads' "Remain in Light," while his sly, snaky rhythm work helped the Tom Tom Club crack the Top 40 (with "Genius of Love")

On the evening of May 6, 1958, a baggage car with fancy thoroughbred cargo arrived at the old Mount Washington Pennsylvania Railroad station. Out came Silky Sullivan, who days before had been the toast of the Kentucky Derby and was a proven crowd-pleaser bound for the Preakness. He lost both races but captured hearts, and his presence at Old Hilltop drew a track betting-record figure. "The strapping pride of California patiently posed for dozens of news and amateur photographers as more than 150 persons, including a chattering swarm of children, gathered about," The Sun said of Silky's Baltimore debut.

It took Tavares Gooden five years to find his best position at the University of Miami. It took him only 22 practices this summer to convince the Ravens he has a place in their future. "If he's willing to work, study and really digest this defense ... I think this is a guy who at some point will be a difference-maker on our defense," said Eric DeCosta, the team's director of college scouting. Gooden, 23, was a late bloomer at Miami, but he could turn out to be a third-round steal in the 2008 draft.

A word of advice to Jeff Williams: Stay off the freeways of Southern California between now and next month's Olympic Games. A word of advice to the rest of the world's 200-meter sprinters: Beware of Jeff Williams.OK, maybe Michael Johnson need not worry about Williams or anyone else. But the man who finished second in Sunday's 200-meter final at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials in Atlanta figures to be a solid choice for the silver medal.Williams, 31, is something of a late bloomer whose career had been sidetracked by injuries for several years.

Late bloomer. That's Arundel's Tony Ross.Ross, nowhere to be found among the leading scorers and rebounders a year ago, has sprouted both mentally and physically to emerge as one of Anne Arundel County's top big men.Now a 17-year-old senior, Ross paces the No. 10 Wildcats (9-3) in scoring (18.6) and rebounds (9.8), going from anonymity to college prospect over the course of one very important summer.Such schools as Central Florida, Davidson, Xavier, High Point (N.C.), the University of Missouri-Kansas City and Baltimore's Division III Goucher are showing more than passing interest in him.A great summer with the Madison Buccaneers Amateur Athletic Union team and at such top camps as the East Invitational and Five-Star have drawn attention to Ross.

WASHINGTON - As many of George W. Bush's friends did just over a decade ago - after the president's son became part-owner of the Texas Rangers - K. Michael Conaway came early to a game to watch batting practice with his two sons. In his usual playful manner, Bush sneaked behind Conaway, a former partner in the oil business, and gleefully whispered in his ear: "My own personal field of dreams." In ways George Walker Bush could not have known then, that run-down, dusty diamond in Arlington, Texas, was more than a baseball fan's version of heaven.

Theories abound as to why Rogers Barnes is a late bloomer - not making a name for himself in either football or basketball until this, his senior year. But there is no doubt that Barnes is one of the most dynamic basketball players in the county this season and a key reason the Hawks (11-2 overall and in the Howard County league) are one of the county's top teams. He leads River Hill in scoring with a 14.8 average, and his defensive skills are equally impressive. Barnes normally guards the opposing team's top scoring threat and averages a team-high six steals.

THEY HAVEN'T erected a statue in honor of Wilbert Lynn III since he won the Maryland state high school golf tournament. No one is beating down the door to his Northwest Baltimore home, and he doesn't have a posse. But ever so slightly, a heartbeat above imperceptible, there is a buzz about Lynn, who made up a six-stroke deficit on the back nine of the final round to win by a stroke and become the first city student to win the state title. A growing number of people are talking about the City College senior, even if they're not sure about what he's doing.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - It all makes sense now, in hindsight. Unlike when it happened. "We looked stupid, and I know we looked stupid," Orioles vice president of baseball operations Syd Thrift said yesterday about signing first baseman David Segui to a four-year, $28 million contract last winter. Not that Segui wasn't worthy; he has an underrated glove, a .292 career average and hit .334 with 103 RBIs for Texas and Cleveland in 2000. His signing instantly improved the Orioles. But he was 34, and Chris Richard, 26, had firmly established himself at first base over the last two months of last season.

Autumn's gardens are beautiful and bittersweet. Part of their charm is their transitory nature--overblown roses in their last stages, ornamental grasses swaying with the breeze, shrubs changing color, then quickly leaving a skeleton of bare branches. The beauty of a fall garden comes as much from structure and foliage as from color. The best ones hold up even after a difficult summer like this one, with its unusual number of cloudy and rainy days that kept many plants from blooming their most colorfully.

Ever since her fiance jilted her two decades ago, she's played it safe, deliberately avoiding romantic relationships. Except for her frequent nightmares, her life is perfect, Annie informs us in one of the play's many passages of direct-audience address.
