Relive the glory days of gas-guzzling engines, turbo-glide transmissions and rag tops as Vintage Tin of Maryland sponsors its 22nd annual Rod Run Picnic, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at Fort Smallwood Park.

It will be a classic car-lovers delight, featuring hundreds of pre-1972 cars, from rods to roadsters, on display.

"From past experience, we expect several hundred cars to show up for the picnic," said Carol Cross, group spokeswoman. "Last year, we had 600 cars -- from '50s cars to Al Capone types -- show up for the one-day event."

Admission is $10 per car (driver and one passenger included). Additional passengers are $5 each.

Door prizes will be awarded. Food and refreshments will be on sale.

The park is at the end of Fort Smallwood Road.

Thirty-two days remain until the opening bell rings for county schools, much to the relief of hot, bored kids and their grateful parents.

August days are spent searching the stores and malls for the right lunch box, back pack, shoes and first-day outfit (all on sale, if possible). The first few days of September are filled with signing permission forms, accumulating forgotten supplies, and getting back into the routine.

The back-to-school rush can be overwhelming for the best of students, but even more so for children who have experienced problems at school.

Although schools are closed until Sept. 1, offices are open and there is still time to schedule appointments with guidance counselors to discuss problems and solutions.

Check the phone book for the number of your student's elementary or middle school.
