Borough Council unanimously passed an ordinance last week that would provide a maximum of $2,053,500 for their share of funding for the new community pool. The decision, which split Council in a 3-3 tie that was broken by Mayor Mildred Trotman in favor of the project, follows the January 25th meeting that introduced the ordinance.
Negotiations concerning Princeton Universitys Arts and Transit Neighborhood proposal are slated to move forward following the Boroughs unanimous vote approving the Alexander Corridor/Arts and Transit Joint Task Force that will include members from Borough Council, Township Committee, and Princeton University.

Lesley Manville, on Another Year
Having been warned by doctors that cringing is harmful to my health, I usually avoid watching the Academy Award festivities. I have a low tolerance for the glitzy overkill, the scripted jokes, and all those nauseating musical flourishes and fanfares when the envelope-openers are announced and again when the winners are named. Worse still are the politically motivated or simply thoughtless misjudgments like the major oversight this column is about, and for that reason I thought it only fair to watch at least some of Sunday night’s big show. And to be honest, the hour or so I saw of it wasn’t all that bad. I experienced no major cringing fits, though it was touch and go when James Franco turned up as Marilyn Monroe.
