A men's basketball player at Harford Community College died Friday night after the team's first practice, a spokesperson said Saturday. The college is not releasing the name of the player, who was a freshman, because it wants to allow his family time to inform other relatives of his death. A news release posted on the school's website offered no details on who the player was or how he died. Harford canceled all sporting events and practices this weekend.

For such a little space, the Student Art Gallery at Harford Community College has made a mighty big impact. For starters, it’s run by a board of student officers who oversee the space and the selection of artists. Then, the exhibits rotate nearly every week and usually include a small reception for the artist each time. The real attraction, however, is the art. “I think the work is more varied. It’s edgier,” says Heidi Neff, faculty advisor to the gallery’s board.Because it’s not a sales-based gallery, freedom of expression is the rule.
