WEST WINDSOR-PLAINSBORO: Three decades and still going strong
African-American Parent Support Group still touting its positive message
WEST WINDSOR-PLAINSBORO — It’s 30 years old and 850 members strong.

The African-American Parent Support Group is celebrating three decades of service to the West Windsor-Plainsboro Regional School District this year. The group’s mission is to work together in support of African-American students by enhancing positive self-esteem and helping the school district to maximize students’ educational potential.

Karen Delk, who serves as president, said, “Our mission is to be a resource for parents, giving them information and advice for both parents and youth.”


    The drama pitting the Institute for Advanced Study against the Friends of Princeton Battlefield reached a critical point two weeks ago when the D & R Canal Commission, which a few days before rendered a decision failing to approve the institute’s housing development in the Battlefield area, reversed course and approved the application based on a change of vote by one member, a state employee.

Intimate and Powerful
Maureen McGovern is bringing her tribute to female singer-songwriters to New Hope
MAUREEN McGovern was performing at an AIDS benefit in San Francisco several years ago, an event that also featured fellow singer Helen Reddy, a contemporary of Ms. McGovern’s during the 1970s.

   After 9/11, Ms. Reddy — the “Queen of ‘70s Pop” as she was known during that decade — quit performing for a time and returned to her native Australia, where she became a licensed hypnotherapist.

   The San Francisco benefit would be Ms. Reddy’s first time back performing on stage in a while.
