THERE'S A CONTEST AFTER ALL: Borough resident Kim Pimley announced her intention Tuesday to run against incumbent Mayor Mildred Trotman in the Democratic primary elections in June. The race means the first contested mayoral contest since the 2003 Democratic primary when then-Councilman Joe O'Neill defeated Assemblyman Reed Gusciora.
For the first time in four years, Princeton Borough will hold a contested mayoral primary election, allowing two Democrats to face off against each other in the primary election in June.
Following an updated Princeton University campus vision plan presented Thursday to the Regional Planning Board of Princeton, and with Princeton planners continuing to review the joint municipal Community Master Plan, it is clear that the University will continue to play a crucial role in the Princetons' economic, sociopolitical, and educational development for decades to come.
Despite falling short in 2005, following the first solid Republican outing posted in years in the Township, local Republicans vowed to make sure that future candidates did more than simply fill a space on the ballot column.
All it took was some funding and a commitment from a Princeton community apparently ready to fully embrace the sport of skateboarding.

It could happen to anyone. One day, 24-year-old Beth Livingston got into her car, strong-limbed and whole. Minutes later her broken body was thrown from her Isuzu Troope and she has lived with paralysis and adaptive technology ever since.
The coaching staff on the Princeton University men's lacrosse team has challenged senior attacker Peter Trombino to shoot early and often this season.
It would have been easy for Lindsay Grabowski to get discouraged and just go through the motions in her senior season with the Amherst College women's ice hockey team.
Chris Trombino got off to a slow start in his debut last Thursday with the Hun School boys' lacrosse team.
“Where the poet does his job by virtue of an effort of the mind he is in rapport with the painter, who does his job with respect to the problems of form and color.”
“Everything modern or possibly merely new is uncompromising.”

In any conversation with Superintendent of Schools Judith A. Wilson, certain words pepper the dialog community, family, service, and joy. "I like to think of the district as a very vibrant living organization that ties together everyone across the community," she said. "When I think of community, within the schools or in the wider context, much of it is about relationships and connections and understanding what it means to be a living organization, not just an institution. A lot of my job is listening, focusing on the essentials of people's emotions and questions."
