ARBOR DAY IN TREE CITY U.S.A.: With trees
blooming all over Princeton, Township Mayor Phyllis Marchand proclaimed
April 29, Arbor Day, last Friday at Johnson Park School. Pictured
here, Township Arborist, Greg O'Neal, is asking some Johnson Park
third-graders to guess how much weight the rope he's holding will
support. The answer was 6,000 pounds. Nobody guessed right.
Princeton Public Library Director Leslie Burger has
been elected the president of the American Library Association
(ALA) for the 2006-2007 term.
Princeton smokers looking forward to lighting up
in the soon-to-be opened public plaza will have to light up elsewhere
as Borough Council last week approved a measure that will ban
all smoking from the 15,000-square-foot area next to the Princeton
Public Library on Witherspoon Street. The ordinance reflects statewide
initiatives whose aim is to rid public places of second hand smoke.
Members of Borough Council and Township Committee
met last week to approve joint spending for the two municipalities'
15 shared services and agencies.
