SINGING THE SEASON IN: This year's Christmas
tree lighting ceremony on Palmer Square began the day after Thanksgiving
with carols by the Princeton High School Choir, led by Charles
Sundquist. The 5 p.m. tree lighting spectacular with Holiday Brass
also featured the arrival of Santa Claus.
How to identify a gang sign, what colors are associated
with which gangs, and how to tell if a child's behavior appears
to be associated with a gang were some of the topics discussed
at John Witherspoon Middle School on Monday night when the Township
and Borough Police and Princeton Regional Schools hosted a town
forum to educate parents on gang behavior.
With various downtown construction projects in a
temporary lull, and fair weather prevailing, downtown Princeton,

Princeton Borough and Township officials convened
last night at Borough Hall in the hope of resolving the issue
of what has been dubbed a "missing link" of sidewalk along a small
portion of Snowden Lane.
