Ball field on Harvard Council docket

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

Ball field maintenance was one of the main discussions during the April 10 Harvard Council meeting, with the council coming to the conclusion that the entire field needs updates.

It was also noted that the field will need to be combed over, as an abundance of stickers have grown over it.

Voices of Zambia share hymns, gospel in Harvard

BY ASHLEY D. SWANSON

Their voices melt together in a euphony of sounds that echo in and out of the gym and hallways.

Capturing the audiences attention is easy once the guitarist begins to thrum the cords and the drums are beat in a melodic tune.
