HELP MAKE RELAY HUGE SUCCESS

The weekend of Sept. 28-29 will be a big one for our community. Union County's 24-Hour Relay will take to the track that weekend to raise money for projects that benefit our young people.

THE RELAY needs sponsors and teams. Teams of 10 people each will spend 12 or 24 hours circling the track. Team members will take turns doing the laps — either running or walking. Teams learn about camaraderie, support, strategy — and all for a good cause.

The cost is $400 a team. Prospective teams are looking for sponsors.

What better way for local businesses, organizations and service clubs to impact youth programs than by getting involved in the 24-Hour Relay, the mission of which is to fund projects to help keep our kids drug and alcohol free. Teams don't have to do the full 24 hours, and you don't have to be a runner. Twelve hours and taking turns walking, at mile intervals, will do.

LAST YEAR'S RELAY raised several thousand dollars. Funds were distributed to a number of programs, among them the Nazarene Church Community Ball Field, the D-FY (Drug-free Youth) program, Arts for All, and numerous school clubs.

Organizational meetings for teams are set for 7 p.m. Sept. 19 and 25 at the middle school. Anyone who wants to have a positive impact on helping youth-oriented programs succeed should think seriously in helping out with the 24-Hour Relay in some way. The event is all about making our community a better place.

ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST

General Motors' Camaro and Firebird are going the way of Chrysler Corporation's Barracuda and Challenger, Ford's Ranchero and Volkswagen's Karman Ghia. GM has ceased production of the popular sports cars that debuted with the 1967 model. The second-to-last Z-28 Camaro to come off the production line — the last one was put in Chevrolet's museum — sold last week at a charity auction for $71,500.

THE CAMARO WAS ONE of the baby-boomer generation's hot cars. Like Ford's Mustang and earliest Thunderbird, it was sporty, could be ordered with muscle, and cost a lot less than a Corvette.

But all good things must come to an end, and the Camaro hasn't fared well in the era of SUVs and imports. GM announced a year ago it planned to stop making the Camaro and its twin, the Pontiac Firebird.

When it comes to cars, though, there's always a market for nostalgia. Volkswagen brought back the Beetle. Ford brought back a sporty retro T-Bird. Chrysler concocted a retro panel, the PT Cruiser.

The Camaro may be gone for now, but the concept surely isn't dead.
