CHANGE FOR CHANGE: Third grade students in Summer Exploration gather change for change for Senator Barack Obamas campaign by managing a lemonade stand in front of the Henry Pannell Learning Center on Witherspoon Street. Ashante Thompson (far right), the third grade teacher, noted that the campers had been learning about the voting process and civic participation as part of the camp curriculum and decided to get involved in the campaign.

The Princeton community will soon learn about, and be able to respond to, plans for a new pool complex. At its Thursday evening meeting, the Joint Recreation Board approved a motion to engage a consulting firm that will meet with local residents to discuss the need for new pool facilities, and to hear what pool users would and would not like to have in an updated facility, which would be located on the same site as the current pool.

The world of Coward — celebrated British playwright, actor, and composer from the 1920s until his death in 1973 — is a world whose inhabitants “dress for dinner” (tuxedoes and evening gowns), a world of expertly crafted dry martinis and epigrams (“It’s discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.”), ivory cigarette holders, and velvet smoking jackets.
