Were it not for the biggest disappointment of his life, Hobart Daniel Wolf Jr. would not be a county resident today, much less the newest member of the Board of Zoning Appeals.The disappointment came more than 40 years ago, but is still fresh in the memory of the 72-year-old Eldersburg resident.Back then, aviator Wolf was filling the airwaves with laughter on a late-night radio program in Louisville, Ky. He was so good that Lucky Strike planned to hire him and run him head to head mornings against another aviator, Arthur Godfrey, who was then the most popular radio voice in America.

AS PART OF the farewell football game at Memorial Stadium this month, fans buying programs to the Ravens-Oilers contest received a nostalgic bonus: A reprint of a 1954 Colts program. My, how times have changed in those 43 years!Tickets were ridiculously cheap. Pro football had yet to become a national craze. You could order a "1955 season book" for box seats in the upper or lower stands for $25.20. That's not for one game, mind you, but for the entire six-game home schedule. Four dollars and twenty cents per game.

The luckiest man on earth, Terry Michaelson-Yeates, grows shamrocks in a greenhouse in Wales. Why are his Irish eyes smiling? Take a look at those plants.Every one is covered with four-leaf clovers.In fact, those 30 plants have produced many four-leaf clovers since Michaelson-Yeates plucked them from a desolate Irish hillside last fall.The magical, mystical shamrocks will make him rich and famous, he says, once he learns how to successfully breed the plants. If not by this St. Patrick's Day, then perhaps by next.

See, this is how it works.The Beach Club calls me with a hole-in-one story. I call the guy who made the ace for more details or some interesting quotes and, not only do I get the quotes, I also get a second story about a senior league.Tom Boenzli of West Ocean City is the hero of all this action because he really hit a perfect 7-iron shot to the 155-yard fifth hole at the Beach Club and it took one bounce and cuddled down into the cup. That's the ace -- his first in 43 years of playing golf!

It happened in the early '20s: We had no water, and the crops were poor that year.We did have a beautiful stream of water running through our meadow that we called "the branch."Actually, it was the Little Patuxent River. Our animals drank of it, and my father hauled water from the branch for our use.Our faithful old mare, Bessie -- who had the biggest feet I've ever seen ona horse -- pulled the cart with the barrels of water in it right up to the kitchen door, where it was parked. We had to boil the water before drinking it or cooking with it.Baths were taken in a long galvanized tub in the kitchen.

Andre Baruch, 83, whose prolonged radio career ranged from broadcasting Brooklyn Dodgers' baseball games to announcing "Your Hit Parade," died Sunday at his home in Beverly Hills, Calif. Long identified as the voice of Lucky Strike cigarettes, one of Mr. Baruch's most enduring stints was as announcer for "Your Hit Parade," a program that much of America awaited eagerly in the 1930s and '40s as it reported in extravagant detail the 10 top-selling songs of the preceding week. Mr. Baruch's distinctive voice also was a key part "The Shadow."

Hal Walker, 70, one of the first African-American journalists on television news in the 1960s, died Tuesday of prostate cancer in Reston, Va. Mr. Walker was the first black correspondent hired by CBS News and covered many of the national news events of the late 1960s, including the funeral of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. As a young reporter, he won acclaim for his work covering race relations at WTOP-TV in Washington, which was then a CBS affiliate. He began working for CBS News in 1968 and was promoted to correspondent in the network's Washington bureau in September 1969.
