A group of Glenmont parents packed a room of the Howard County schools' Applied Research Lab last night filled with fear that 56 of their kids might be sent from top-rated Thunder Hill Elementary School to struggling Phelps Luck in the fall of 2003. "We would be devastated if we had to move them out of Thunder Hill," said Marjorie Valin, whose three children attend the school. "Thunder Hill is the fabric of the Glenmont community; it's the anchor for the neighborhood." Valin and the two dozen other parents present were upset by lines drawn on an early draft map of the Howard County School Boundary Line Committee, which meets Tuesdays at the lab and will recommend this fall district boundary changes for the county's 38 elementary and 18 middle schools in 2003.

Thunder Hill Elementary School is warning parents about two reports of men following children in their neighborhoods. Two men in a light blue sedan followed a pupil from the bus stop in the Glenmont area Sept. 6, and a car matching the same description was seen driving slowly by a girl playing basketball in an unspecified Ellicott City neighborhood Sept. 9, a letter from the school said. The letter was dated Sept. 11. Both incidents were reported to Howard County police, who plan to step up patrols in the area, according to the letter from Principal Cynthia H. Hankin and Assistant Principal Cathy Nowack.

About 100 area residents streamed into an auditorium last night to offer comments about the future Blandair Regional Park in Columbia - most of them more interested in a road leading into the 300 acres than the way the land might be used. Neighbors in Glenmont oppose plans to give visitors access to part of the park through Summer Hollow Lane, which dead-ends in their community at the north side of the property. They fear it will add to the traffic that they already deal with as drivers take a shortcut between Route 108 and Phelps Luck Drive.

If you're nostalgic for that super-cool instrumental surf sound, it hasn't vanished from the Earth along with Tyrannosaurus rex. You'll find it zipping along as groovy as ever in music by Los Straitjackets, who are playing the Eight by Ten Club on Sunday.Guitarists Danny Amis and Eddie Angel, bassist Scott Esbeck and drummer L.J. Lester will be donning their Mexican wrestling masks and indulging in their new-old guitar-based sound, which would have been right at home on the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack.

It takes an estimated 2 1/2 minutes to descend.

When heavy rains roll across the Towson area, Cleve and Gayle Laub and other homeowners watch anxiously to see whether Herring Run will rise to snatch another azalea, topple one more tree or eat away another few feet of their back yards.Standing by the 7-foot-high cliff the water has carved into his yard on Queen's Ferry Road, Mr. Laub, 52, talked about the increasing runoff from the shopping centers, roads and parking lots built since the neighborhood was developed in the 1950s."People thought they had this pretty little meandering stream in the country, and woke up 10 years later and found that wasn't the case," said Mr. Laub.

Each tattoo tells a piece of Rodney Henry's life, so one asks about the skull and crossbones, the zoot-suited alligator, the Virgin Mary, the flaming broken heart and so on, up one arm and down the other. It's an outside shot, but who wouldn't get curious about one story fragment not represented there, seeing how the subject of the moment is this: Former full-time rock musician Henry has opened a pie shop. Right, a pie shop. So, uh, got any pie tattoos? "Yeah, you wanna check it out?"

As the work of the Howard County boundary line advisory committee nears its end, it looks increasingly like elementary school Plan One, which would move a protesting Glenmont neighborhood from Thunder Hill into Phelps Luck, will be favored. At a committee meeting last night, it apparently sank in for members of the group that even though they have spent months of late nights considering where the county's elementary and middle school pupils should attend school next year, it is still the school system's office of Geographic Systems that has the last word in deciding what to recommend to the Board of Education Oct. 24.
