PRINCETON: High court agrees, most of the time
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan speaks at university
Supreme Court Justice and Princeton University graduate Elena Kagan returned to her alma mater Thursday to say the high court agrees most of the time, despite splitting on “pretty predictable lines” on the handful of high-profile cases it hears each year.

The court last year agreed unanimously in 60 percent of the opinions it issued, she said during a public conversation with university President Christopher L. Eisgruber inside Richardson Auditorium on campus. Yet there are times when the court breaks down 5-4 on conservative-liberal lines, with Ms. Kagan part of the liberal wing of the court.

“There are four of us who think one thing and there are four of us who think the other thing. And then we wait and see what Justice (Anthony) Kennedy does,” she said. Mr. Kennedy is seen as the swing vote on the court.

Christmas with Trace Adkins
The country star is bringing a new holiday tradition to the State Theatre
Even if you’re not a country music fan, you probably have heard of Trace Adkins and can recognize his trademark baritone voice, which has churned out top hits such as “You’re Gonna Miss This,” “Ladies Love Country Boys” and “Songs About Me.”

   In addition to selling more than 10 million albums, Mr. Adkins was the winner of Donald Trump’s All-Star Celebrity Apprentice, has performed for seven USO Tours, voiced the recurring character of Elvin on King of the Hill and regularly acts as a voiceover artist.

   Just as he did last year, Mr. Adkins is taking a break from his normal concert schedule to embark on a special Christmas tour, which will be stopping at the State Theatre in New Brunswick on Nov. 18. It’s a new holiday tradition the country star says is one of the best decisions he has ever made.
