When team officials announced last week that Pro Bowl outside linebacker Terrell Suggs had torn his Achilles tendon, former Ravens offensive lineman Wally Williams understood what Suggs was experiencing. Nearly 15 years ago at almost the same time, Williams tore the Achilles tendon in his right, or plant foot, while backpedaling in off-season drills. He returned in six months to start the final 10 games of the 1997 season. Suggs, 29, is expected to have surgery Tuesday morning.

The letter came with a return address of the Baltimore District Court in the window. Not a good sign. Fortunately, the letter was addressed to "H., Wally," at my house in Northwest Baltimore. My wife handed me the letter and lamented that she hates getting summons sent to our address. "I ain't Wally, so I ain't worried," I answered. But old Wally H. (we're omitting the last name for the sake of Wally's privacy) got four other pieces of mail sent to my house the same day the summons came.

Friends, Baltimoreans, countrymen, lend me your ears; I come to praise Wally Orlinsky, not to bury him. The good that men do lives after them; the evil is oft interred with their bones. So let it be with Wally. WITH APOLOGIES for taking great liberty with Shakespeare, that's the way we ought to remember Walter S. Orlinsky. Much has been made of his colorful quirks; his loud, brash personality; his creative, restless intellect. Much, too - too much, really - has been made of his federal conviction and imprisonment on bribery charges.

Wally Appleseed has been at it now for more than two years, preaching his "trees are good" gospel to the heathens. And he has turned many in his audience into converts.During this brief span of time, more than 2.5 million baby trees have been planted in Maryland under his guidance, an achievement that only future generations will fully appreciate.The best part is that Wally Appleseed has accomplished this without bankrupting the public coffers. In fact, he is a prime example of how some government programs can be run inexpensively and yet still produce tremendous results.

POOR Wally Orlinsky has taken many a lump over the years for his promotion of the Largest Birthday Cake in All the World during the 1976 Bicentennial, the latest being Gilbert Sandler's Aug. 28 Baltimore Glimpses.So it seems almost unfair to describe another goof Wally almost made -- in complete innocence -- that would have capped the whole affair.But what the heck, Wally has broad shoulders and a good sense of humor (and he's about to get married). So now it can be told.Wally, then president of the City Council, was in his City Hall office one day describing his grandiose plans for the cake's central role in the celebrations and how he would dress up in a Revolutionary-era uniform to cut it with a ceremonial sword.

This is one of those isn't-it-a-small-world stories. Or, they also serve who only clean up afterward.The time is the mid-1960s and, down at Maryland, the Terrapins are hardly world-beaters, but they aren't a 1-8 team, either. Coaches are coming and going, Tom Nugent begetting Lou Saban, who begat Bob Ward, but there was one constant, and his name was Wally Burnotes."I was a student manager for three years and it was a terrific experience," recalls Wally, who graduated in 1967, married, settled in Baltimore and raised three children here until 1978 when his company transferred him to Atlanta.

It's a story that simply won't go away. It's an upper-class soap opera, and even after the passage of 75 years it still packs a sentimental punch and draws a willing audience into the glittering world of the British aristocracy. It is the saga of England's Edward VIII (he reigned for less than a year and was never crowned), who found it simply impossible to continue with his royal responsibilities without the love of an ambitious commoner from Baltimore, Wallis Warfield Simpson, the Belle of Biddle Street, who was determined to bag a royal and crash her way into the upper strata of British society.

While watching the Ravens throw the ball 53 times in last Sunday's loss to Seattle, former offensive linemen Wally Williams and Jonathan Ogden said that would have caused major problems on the sidelines. One of Ogden's trademarks was to throw down his helmet on the sidelines when frustrated by the play calling, and then immediately begin talking with coordinators Matt Cavanaugh and Jim Fassel or head coach Brian Billick. Ogden might have split his helmet in half Sunday. "If J.O. [Ogden]

At a time when much of the English-speaking world is fixated on the royal wedding, it's worth pointing out that if it weren't for the original Baltimore bad girl, Wallis Warfield Simpson, Friday's nuptials might not be taking place. Without her, there might be no reason to obsess about Kate Middleton's dress. There'd be no gossip about the guest list. (Fergie and Simon Cowell were both royally snubbed.) There'd be no "sweet William" soaps or official royal wedding rose petal jelly for tourists in London to snap up. "If Wallis Simpson had never been born, King Edward VIII might not have abdicated the throne," says Hugo Vickers, the British-born author and royal expert who will be providing commentary about the wedding for the Associated Press Television News.

Screenwriter David Seidler knew he was treading a royal-blue carpet studded with land mines when he tackled "The King's Speech. " But nothing would deter him from telling that rarity - an inspirational story that actually is inspirational. Seidler, born in Britain and brought to the United States as a boy during World War II, revered King George VI ( Colin Firth) as a steadfast monarch and a personal hero. George VI conquered a merciless stammer: the same obstacle that afflicted Seidler in his youth.

WALTER S. ORLINSKY started in politics as a 1960s boy-wonder state delegate. He was energetic, imaginative and idealistic, fighting for reforms in the Democratic Party and in the larger society. Mr. Orlinsky, who died this week at 63, was an important member of a progressive alliance that built bridges across racial divides, calmed tensions after the 1968 riots and later helped infuse the city with a sense of urban renaissance. With such rising activists as Parren Mitchell, Barbara Mikulski and Norman Reeves, he was involved in a movement to stop an expressway from destroying Fells Point, Federal Hill and sections of West Baltimore.

Wally Wonfor is going to get you. He's going to yell and make an example of you. That's before you even get through the front door for Wonfor's terse introduction to the grueling 13-session tennis boot camp. "My name is Mr. Wonfor," he tells each new generation of would-be Wimbledon ball boys. "You can call me Sir."

Forty-five years ago, he was baseball's boy wonder, a pitching phenom who, as a teenager, nearly fetched the 1964 Orioles a pennant. Then Wally Bunker was gone. Overnight, or so it seemed, he vanished, done in by a bum right arm that finished his career almost as quickly as it had begun. The Orioles' stopper at 19, he quit the game at 26. Bitter? Not Bunker. "No complaints," he said from his home in Ridgeland, S.C. "Playing baseball was magnificent, a dream come true. I was definitely really good, with a great sinker, but ... what can you do?

W. Robert "Robbie" Wallis, a longtime reporter who was later editor in chief of The Aegis in Harford County for a decade, died Friday of heart failure at the Lorien Bel Air nursing home. He was 77. Mr. Wallis was born and raised in Bel Air and graduated from Bel Air High School in 1948. He earned an associate's degree in pre-law from the University of Baltimore in 1965. Mr. Wallis' entry into the world of journalism was unconventional. In 1949, while working as a projectionist at the Bel Air Theater, he listened to a basketball game on the radio and then wrote up an account of the game and sent it to the editor of the old Harford Gazette.
