On most days, Tony Wheeler of Arnold is a guide for a company that offers historic tours in Maryland. But on Sunday, Wheeler became part of history himself. Wheeler, wearing a top hat and early 19th-century attire, joined hundreds of volunteers at the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore to help sew a reproduction of the original Star-Spangled Banner. "This is the first time I sewed in my life," said Wheeler, 78, after adding his stitch to the hem of the flag. The project is part of events marking the bicentennial of the War of 1812.

Charlie Zill got his wish - and then some. The long-time usher at Camden Yards, who has stage 4 lung cancer, watched his beloved Orioles play one more time Wednesday night. Wearing an Orioles cap and jersey over his trademark "Zillbilly" overalls, he also threw out the first pitch from his wheelchair to new Orioles pitcher T.J. McFarland. "Sinkerball," Zill said in a weak voice of the pitch that was low and away and drew a nice ovation from the crowd. "Incredible. I didn't think this was going to happen.

Tears filled my eyes as I read Kevin Cowherd 's column this morning about the illness of Charlie Zill or Zillbilly, the "country boy" usher at Camden Yards ("Cancer-stricken 'Zillbilly' usher hopes to see 1 or 2 more games," March 18). Having taken zillions of photographs of Mr. Zill over the years during the 7 t h -inning stretch, I was sure Mr. Cowherd would need one of them to highlight his tribute to Charlie. I was completely wrong. Charlie's Zillbilly character has been so admired, loved and photographed by others, including The Sun's photographers, that any pictures I had were superfluous.

Charlie Zill leans forward and adjusts the lines to his oxygen supply before slipping a CD into his laptop. "This is a good one," he says softly. Up pops a video of Zill, the long-time fixture at Orioles games, doing his "Zillbilly" dance in full cornpone regalia (overalls, straw hat, fake teeth, orange fiddle) as John Denver's "Country Boy" blares over the Camden Yards PA system during the seventh-inning stretch. Now here's footage of him joking with Orioles fans and doing magic tricks, and what you notice right away is how everyone lights up when they see him. When the video ends, though, Zill's smile fades.

After Red Lion Christian Academy of Delaware pulled within a point of second-ranked Calvert Hall with a touchdown in the final minutes of Friday night's showdown of regional powers, it appeared overtime was inevitable. But on the ensuing extra point, the Cardinals' Da'Quan Davis timed the snap perfectly and blocked the kick. C.J. Williams then ripped off a 35-yard run, allowing Calvert Hall to take a knee and hold on for a 28-27 victory in front of an estimated 3,000 fans at Paul Angelo Russo Stadium.

Calvert Hall's ability to win close games survived another stiff test Friday night when the Cardinals edged Delaware's Red Lion Christian Academy, 28-27, in front of an estimated 3,500 fans at Paul Angelo Russo Stadium. The Cardinals (3-0) broke on top a 10-yard interception return by senior Will Johnson, who jumped a Red Lion route and streaked untouched into the end zone for a 6-0 lead with 37 seconds left in the opening period. The extra-point try was no good. Red Lion stormed back, however, taking a 7-6 advantage on a nine-play, 62-yard drive finished on a 6-yard swing pass from freshman quarterback Davis Sills to junior Dakiel Shorts with 9:34 remaining in the half.
