Durbar II has been shocking people for more than a century. When the 3-year-old, French-bred, American-owned Thoroughbred won England's prestigious Epsom Derby in 1914, despite going off as a 20-1 long shot, the genteel world of English horse-racing was turned upside-down. When he made it out of war-torn Paris in the early days of World War I, at a time when many horses were being pressed into military service, he again bucked the odds. And today, when people hear that this famed Thoroughbred is buried in Bel Air, on the grounds of Harford Community College - well, it's safe to say that's news to most Harford County residents.

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.

The most important function of people elected or appointed to boards, councils and commissions overseeing public institutions is to strike a balance between making sure the public institution in question has enough money to do what needs to be done, and to make sure the public's money is well spent in that endeavor. Sometimes, this means making the unpopular decision to raise taxes or fees. Sometimes, it means preventing mission creep and the associated increases in spending. An oversight body that does its job properly over time will end up having to do a little of both.

Harford Community College students would see tuition rise $12 per credit hour under the school's proposed operating budget for next year, while Carroll Community College wants to raise tuition $5 per credit hour. Officials at the Harford school said they need to close a structural deficit and to offset flat state and county funding. Their proposed $47.8 million operating budget was given to the members of the HCC Board of Trustees at their most recent monthly meeting on Dec. 10. The proposed budget includes an increase of about $800,000, or 2 percent compared to this year's spending level of $47 million, but the tuition increase amounts to a 7.6 percent increase for county residents who attend HCC. The $12 increase would raise the tuition per credit hour for Harford County residents from $92 to $104, with similar increases for out-of-county and out-of-state students to $191 and $278 per credit hour, respectively.

Harford Community College officials may have come to a reasonable usage fee accommodation with the recreation leagues that play on the baseball and softball diamonds that serve as the Route 22 front yard of the college, but underlying problems exposed by the ham-handed proposal to increase the fees do not appear to have been addressed. On the subject of the fees, the college initially announced the per game cost to play on the crown jewel of the complex, an artificial turf diamond, was going from $100 to $600, and the charge for the other well-groomed fields from $100 to $200.

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.
