The property tax revaluation in Princeton Borough and Township stands to affect all households, with homes being assessed at new values, which in turn directly impacts the share of the municipal, county, and school tax rate for which each homeowner is responsible.
The New Jersey State Department of Transportation (DOT) recently rejected the Boroughs request to extend Sunday metered time limits and to reduce the limit on certain meters to 30 minutes along Nassau Street.
At last weeks Board of Education meeting, Rebecca Cox and Tim Quinn were unanimously elected as Board president and vice president, respectively.
Perennial plants with whimsical common names like purple lovegrass, little bluestem, and turtlehead were among those that provoked debate between neighbors, Borough elected officials, and staff at last weeks Council meeting.

Lawrence Durrell, who completed his Alexandria Quartet 50 years ago with the publication of Clea, gave me a way into The Greek Poets (Norton $39.95), which contains 670 pages of poetry in translation from “Homer to the Present.” I’ve been gazing at this formidable volume for months, a clueless amateur at the base camp of a Greek Mt. Everest. No supplies, no decent climbing gear, no oxygen mask, no background in the subject beyond reading Homer in college, watching sunsets from the Acropolis, living in a garden on Myconos, and riding from Lamia to Thessaloniki with a drunken Greek truck driver gesturing wildly in the direction of the moonlit Aegean Sea, shouting “Thalassa! Thalassa!”
