Between the Lines
Our first inkling that we had missed the boat on the Super Bowl came a
few weeks ago, when we saw an ad in production (now appearing in print
on page 40 of this issue) for a "Super Bowl Needlework Trunk Show &
Party" on Sunday, February 1. That’s not when our new U.S. 1 Calendar
says the Super Bowl is. We have it on the last Sunday in January, the
But no: The ladies organizing the needlework show (being marketed as
an event women might enjoy while their men prepare the chips,
beverages, and remote controls for the big game) have it correct. U.S.

Time was when we could count on our boss to set us straight on matters

in providing space for community groups – for example, offering
rehearsal space to the Princeton High School dance group, Pasion
Latina, and for several years hosting the annual LATF winter clothing
These events have welcomed the Hispanic community living in the
neighborhood and brought together new and old immigrants to enjoy
Hispanic cultural events – and all easily accessible for everyone. We
should continue to support the Arts Council in this central location
so that it can continue to provide us with the richness and variety of
cultural events which reflect and involve all the members of our
