IN JEFF McNelly's "Shoe" comic strip, the central bird-newspaperman is a duffer who sits day after day at a rolltop desk half-hidden under a snowdrift of print matter. He cannot bring himself to throw anything out.The tradition carries over onto other newspapers. Mary Knudsen, a recent Sun alumna, was famous for her clutter; so also Carl Schoettler of The Evening Sun (now of The Sun), and old alum Jim Bready, the back-issue saver of the editorial department. The messy-desk legend still enfolds Judy Bachrach -- her specialty was the permanently pulled-out drawer, from which yet another mound arose.

Ashley Staples is the only four-year starter Alice Puckett has had in 17 years of coaching field hockey at Fallston. Yesterday, Staples, a goalie, played in her fourth state championship final. Fittingly, she went out a champion."I do think about how lucky I am to be on a team like this, but I don't think luck has anything to do with our getting to the state championships," said Staples, after the Cougars successfully defended their Class 3A title with a 1-0 victory over Long Reach at Goucher College.

It was his second goal of the season.

Severn senior forward Leanne Hug, expected back early this week after missing two weeks with an ankle injury, will be a welcome sight as the Admirals prepare for the stretch run in defending their Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland B Conference crown.

In Tuesday's 54-38 victory over St. Vincent Pallotti, the team got 14 points from junior guard Leah Cranmer and 10 rebounds and three blocks from senior center Caitlin Sheehan.

These are boom times for Walt Whitman, America's most famous poet.A century after his death, Whitman, the poet of democracy, the poet of the body and soul, commands a loyal and expansive following from his birthplace on New York's Long Island to the literary circles of China.His rough, rigorous, unrhymed verse, informal and impassioned, appeals to both genders, all ages and numerous nationalities."Whitman is the poet of liberty, of individual freedom," said Carol Muske-Dukes, a poet and creative writing professor at the University of Southern California.

The audience for "Road Scholar," which opens today at th Rotunda, certainly should include readers of The Sun. That's because this is the first movie ever about a Sun writer, if you discount Meg Ryan in "Sleepless in Seattle," and Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Perkins in "HeSaid, She Said."Not only that: Our boy actually appears on camera most of the time. He gets to ride a big red convertible and shoot machine guns! Yes: it's "Lethal Weapon IV" with Dan Rodricks in the Mel Gibson role!Oh, forgive my little joke there, folks.

Rain, thunder and lightning delayed the Maryland state track and field championships at Western Maryland College yesterday, costing Howard High critical points in several Class 3A field events.During a 90-minute delay, coming after an hour of Class 3A and 4A competition at Scott S. Blair Stadium, Howard lost strong chances to capture points in boys 3A competition as four seniors elected to head back to school with boys coach Dave Glenn to attend the school's senior awards banquet."The rain helped make up their minds real quick," said Howard assistant boys coach Tony Holland, who added the stay-or-go decision was left up to each athlete.
