The parent company that produced such products as Twinkies, Zingers and Ho Hos is turning off its ovens for good, which certainly has to stir memories for baby boomers, not just of the iconic snacks it produced but of the TV shows it sponsored in the 1950s. I spent Saturday afternoons in those years stretched on the living room floor of my central Jersey home, and I'm sure I wasn't the only kid doing that. I watched a pigtailed Gail Davis race across the screen of our DuMont television set playing sharpshooter Annie Oakley in a series by the same name that aired on ABC. The show opened with Annie and her rifle, which she quickly pulled to one side and commenced firing as an announcer intoned the show's name.

NEW YORK -- For the past three days, New Yorks Knicks forward Charles Oakley was ready to erupt. There were some veiled criticisms made toward some of his teammates, with Oakley unhappy with both their shot selection and hustle.So with Knicks desperate for a win to avoid falling behind 3-1 against the Houston Rockets, Oakley simply led by example. He didn't score the most points, but Oakley made the biggest impact in New York's 91-82 win last night that evened the best-of-seven series at 2-2.Oakley was a terror on the boards, grabbing 20 rebounds -- nine offensive.

NEW YORK -- If there is any credence to the rumored Harvey Grant-for-Charles Oakley trade, the Bullets should be calling New York Knicks general manager Dave Checketts today, trying to get Oakley into a Washington uniform before the teams meet again at the Capital Centre tomorrow night.But the Knicks likely would drive a harder bargain after watching Oakley grab 18 rebounds and add 13 points last night to send the Bullets to a seventh straight defeat, 101-89, before a Madison Square Garden crowd of 16,127.

David Oakley was in an enviable position going into the Senior PGA Tour qualifying tournament last November. He had a can't lose attitude, because if he failed to make the United States tour, he knew he would be exempt for events on the European tour.As it turned out, the onetime Northern Virginia resident was the most consistent player and his four straight subpar rounds (a 70 and three 71s for 283) placed him fourth."When you think only eight players from around the world gain fully exempt status, and to be one of them-it's amazing," Oakley said by telephone on the eve of the Senior Tour stop in the Kansas City suburb of Belton, Mo."

One of Ray Lewis' co-defendants in the killings outside an Atlanta nightclub has requested his own trial and asked for separate proceedings on the assault and murder charges he faces. Reginald Oakley, 31, formerly of Baltimore, has been indicted along with Lewis, 24, a linebacker for the Ravens, and Joseph L. Sweeting, 34, of Miami on two different types of charges for murder and one for assault. The charges stem from an early morning melee on Jan. 31 in the trendy Buckhead neighborhood after the Super Bowl.

From: Gregory P. Kane, Disgruntled Citizen Menaced by Dirt Bike-Riding Scofflaws Re: Dirt bike-riding scofflaws Dear Mayor Sheila Dixon and Gov. Martin O'Malley: It happened soon after I made the turn on to Oakley Avenue from Park Heights Avenue. My first sign that there might be trouble was when I saw the two dimwits standing in the middle of the street at the corner of Oakley and Palmer avenues. "Ah!" I said to myself. "And here we have two more geniuses who have no idea why the word sideWALK has 'walk' in it."

COLLEGE PARK -- Derek Brown's last official instruction to Rashida Suber and Shalamar Oakley as their coach yesterday was to have them take their name cards from the podium at the Comcast Center interview room as mementos of their special day and of their remarkable careers. Coppin State's senior guards put the Eagles on their tiny backs and carried them deep into the second half of their first-round NCAA tournament game against heavily favored Maryland. Eventually, the top-seeded Terps' talent and height won out in an 80-66 win over 16th-seeded Coppin, but not before Oakley and Suber had earned a world of respect.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- For the Coppin State women's team, the one constant is always defense. For Danielle Anders, it always has been her weakest link. That may be changing - for Anders, but not Coppin. The Eagles got a big defensive contribution from their junior forward and enough offense from seniors Shalamar Oakley and Rashida Suber to take down Delaware State, 63-56, yesterday at the RBC Center and advance to the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference women's championship game. Second-seeded Coppin (21-11)

WASHINGTON - It took all of one practice for forward Charles Oakley to properly introduce himself to the rest of his new Washington Wizards teammates. During yesterday's three-hour practice, Oakley was responsible for two knockdown fouls, bringing a toughness of mind and body not seen around these parts in quite some time. "We hadn't had [that] in a year," said Washington coach Doug Collins. "He makes his presence felt." But Oakley, who signed a one-year deal with the club before practice, is as interested in playing instructor as enforcer at this stage of his career.

Rashida Suber and Shalamar Oakley have been backcourt mates at Coppin State for three years and scoring guards virtually all their lives. Team harmony withstood that delicate dynamic - two scorers, one ball - and the result is the Eagles are poised to make a fourth straight postseason run when the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference women's tournament begins tomorrow in Raleigh, N.C. Suber and Oakley, both seniors, will leave a legacy of unparalleled success...

Sophomore guard Britni Lonesome made a free throw with one second remaining to give host Johns Hopkins a 61-60 victory over Dickinson yesterday. The win was the second in a row for the Blue Jays (7-9, 5-5 Centennial Conference), who trailed by 10 points early in the second half. The victory avenged a loss to the conference-leading Red Devils (10-6, 9-2) earlier in the season. Dickinson's Carole Dempsey made a layup with 11 second remaining to tie the score at 60. Lonesome was then fouled by the Red Devils' Brooke Muller with one second left, and she made the first of two free throws for the winning margin.
