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.

Usually a library is the place to go to research a project, but for the Harford Community College Future Interior Designers Organization, the library itself was the project. The student club transformed a former administrative office in the historic Hays-Heighe House in Churchville into a formal "gentleman's library" during last year's AMC Cancer Research Center Decorator Show House. The students were rewarded for their efforts on the Hays-Heighe House project when they were chosen in September for first place in the student division of the Interior Design Competition sponsored by the Maryland Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers and Chesapeake Home Magazine.
