Now Laurie Collins of Glen Burnie and her golden retriever, Irish, and George S. Everly and Rob Knickerbocker of Severna Park - all of whom volunteered during the crisis - will represent area 9/11 volunteers as grand marshals of the Greater Severna Park Independence Day Parade. The parade begins at 10 a.m. tomorrow. Collins, 40, says her dog is the real grand marshal and that she's just the chauffeur.

A SEASONAL nuisance has reared its ugly head in Central County: those heaps of maple seeds raining down on spring-green lawns, collecting along the sidewalks like autumn leaves, but harder to sweep and impossible to rake.A second scourge is the oak tree pollen that's everywhere.With the consistency of flour, this greenish-yellow plague clings tenaciously to every surface it touches, coating windows and screens, clogging the holes like powdered sugar in a sifter.Ignore my spring lament. When you consider our region's beauty, you know that Mother Nature lives in Central County.

How do you feel about bats? No, not the kind the Orioles swing. I mean the furry little flying kind.Consider this: There were more blossoms on Central County trees this spring than ever before. Right now, there are more tiny, green cherries forming on one branch of my Kwaizan cherry tree than the entire tree had in previous summers. There are so many birds, squirrels and rabbits in my yard, Disney studio could produce an exciting new feature, "The Rodent King."Stay with me, please. There were so many lightning bugs in my back yard last night, they were playing shadow puppet with the mosquitoes.
