Once a week for more than a decade, Robert L. Powell Jr. went to art classes at the Haddonfield Adult School. And until the last few weeks of this spring semester, he took classes in watercolor painting with Gwynn Walker Di Pilla. "A lot of his pictures were for his children and his grandchildren," Di Pilla said, including his final work, an incomplete still life of flowers for the youngest, 6-month-old Emily Ford. "I will finish it up for him," she said. Painting was a refuge from Parkinson's disease, she said, because "when he painted, he did not shake at all. " On Friday, June 19, Mr. Powell, 69, of Haddon Heights, who retired three years ago as a professor of business studies at what is now Rowan College at Gloucester County, died of complications of Parkinson's disease at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden.

"It's a different feeling being a senior," Dixon said after earning the victory in perhaps the Lions' most impressive game of the season, a 14-4 triumph over second-ranked Eastern Monday afternoon.

There also were leadership changes, a new name for one community college and - of course - political battles. Here's a look back at some of the changes in the higher education landscape last year: 1.

Caitlyn Ricci's parents divorced in 1997, four years after her birth. Her mother has said she worked to create a caring environment - taking her to aquariums and art museums - when Caitlyn wasn't with her father. But as Caitlyn pushed age 18 and beyond, her parents said, their relationship with her grew fragile.
