Princeton Regional Schools (PRS) Superintendent Judy Wilson said she would be shocked if any of the money allocated in the Federal governments recently approved economic stimulus package landed in our coffers. Speaking at a recent Board of Education budget workshop, she described the flat budget scenario the PRS administration is anticipating for 2009-2010.
Continuing the discussion about the 2009 budget, last Tuesdays meeting of Borough Council focused on capital projects and debt management. Neighbors advocating for the rehabilitation of Harrison Street Park were also in attendance.

The Princeton Public Librarys actual 2008 expenditures of $4,655,934 came within a few dollars of the $4,679,327 originally budgeted.
Though no formal action was taken during last Thursdays Regional Planning Board meeting, Bob Hillier of Hillier Properties LLC, explained his proposal for building 143 units of housing for residents aged 55 and over on Princeton Ridge for an informal review of the concept plan.
Speaking about her life and career in a lecture last Thursday entitled “Are You Who We Think You Are?” at McCosh Hall on the University campus, Glenn Close quipped that the title query “is a very tricky question to ask somebody, especially someone who has spent the last 30 years pretending to be someone else.”

Scene: A filled-to-capacity classroom at a large midwestern university. The teacher enters wearing his raincoat like a cloak, sidles over to a row of windows and lowers the Venetian blinds, further dimming an already dark winter day one immemorial year on the cusp of the sixties. Disposing of his raincoat cloak with a sinister flourish, he advances to the blackboard, picks up a piece of chalk, tilts his craggy face at a sly angle, grinning over his hunched shoulder at the overflow student audience as he intones, in a husky, theatrically intense Virginia accent that already has the groupies in the front row swooning, “Today we are going to talk about — Edgar Allan Poe.”
“The myth is a public dream,” explains the earnest therapist to the audience and to a bewildered, whining Phaeton, who has just wrecked his father Apollo’s sun chariot. “Unfortunately we give our mythic side scant attention these days.”
The Richardson Chamber Players presented its final concert of its Vienna: Baroque series on Sunday afternoon, focusing on music performed at the Imperial Court during the 17th century. This final concert, featuring pianist Jennifer Tao, violinist Sunghae Anna Lim, flutist Judith Pearce, and cellist Alberto Parrini, treated the audience in Richardson Auditorium to a trio each by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Franz Joseph Haydn, and Ludwig van Beethoven, all composed within twenty years of one another but very different in style and texture.
