It wasn't the art heist of the century — "someone came in and took some artwork off the wall and left with it," the vice president of the Towson ARTS Collective said. But it was a big deal for the small nonprofit that promotes local artists and runs classes to teach others how to paint. And so the people who run the collective are trying to turn a discouraging crime into a positive event with a fundraiser to help repay the artists whose work remains missing and improve security at its basement building on York Road.

Wanted: Men's basketball coach at quality state university. Modest salary. Rising athletic program. Back-to-back NCAA tournament bids.Seems that's the only job Terry Truax hasn't applied for this summer. It's the one he already has at Towson State.Truax, 46, is underpaid even after a raise that recently put his salary above $50,000. But by repeatedly citing money as his reason for seeking other work, he risks alienating the Towson faculty, coaches and staff.It's difficult getting upset with Truax, a nice guy who shows refreshing candor by openly discussing a legitimate concern.

Two weeks ago, basketball coach Terry Truax was looking at other jobs, and high school recruits knew it. At the same time, Towson State was awaiting a conference transfer that would aid its athletic image.Now, it appears that Truax will remain on board, and the Tigers have made the most significant basketball signing of his tenure, getting Dunbar guard Terrance Alexander, the area's top senior. Towson State teams, however, will be staying in the East Coast Conference because the North Atlantic told the Tigers it didn't want to expand after all.Go figure.

When Terry Truax was fired as the basketball coach at what is now Towson University in 1997, he didn't know what he would do next. But after more than a quarter-century as a Division I head coach and assistant, he figured he wouldn't have to coach a high school team. As it turned out, the end of Truax's Towson tenure marked the beginning of a nine-year coaching odyssey that put him with players ranging from South Korean pros to 12-year-old rec league girls. For the past three years, he coached at Yeshivat Rambam, a Jewish school in Northwest Baltimore.

Along the banks of Annapolis' Spa Creek, the trail of damage is striking: Small saplings, many of them poplars, have been whittled off at the base. Tree stubs dot the landscape. Even the trunks of towering white oaks carry scars. Residents and city workers blame the area's newest neighbors, a family of beavers. "I now understand the phrase `busy as a beaver' because they never stop," says Ona Truax, 67, who lives along the creek. She and her grandchildren have witnessed the damage in a city-managed area that borders her property.

An assistant at Towson when it made successive trips to the NCAA tournament in 1990 and '91, Hunt returned to find a program that had won less than a third of its games in the previous five years. The Tigers are picked to finish last in their inaugural season in the Colonial Athletic Association. At Georgia, Hunt, 40, felt as content as a Division I assistant can. He worked in the Southeastern Conference, 90 miles from his hometown in Macon, where his parents were "built-in baby-sitters" for his two children.

FOR THREE years, they were the backcourt duo at the University of Maryland: one, the lanky kid with the Prince Valiant haircut named Neil Brayton; the other, a basketball pipsqueak out of Collingswood, N.J., who couldn't shoot much, couldn't rebound much, and couldn't be kept out of the starting lineup. His name was Gary Williams. Thursday night in Anaheim, Calif., Williams will coach his Maryland basketball team against Georgetown in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament. Brayton will put down his dental instruments in Chestertown and watch his old teammate, and remember how it was nearly four decades ago. "I think Gary's the same guy he was back then," Brayton said.

Days after his team's season-finale loss to Trenton on April30, BayRunners coach Terry Truax was in his office on the third floor of Baltimore Arena, preparing for next season. Apparently, he will be the man leading the BayRunners. Truax, who started the season as an assistant coach before replacing Herb Brown midway through, seems confident he will return, though the team suffered through a 22-game losing streak under him. In his defense, Truax kept Brown's roster in place, and ended up having the same problems, mostly on the defensive end, that Brown had experienced.
