This newspaper could sponsor a Name-the-Princess Contest. We've had a lot of experience, and we're sure the Zoo would be glad to give us a reference. EL SECRETARY Lauro Cavazos of Texas this week became the first Hispanic ever appointed to a presidential cabinet.

Jenyiah, 6, loves to be in the spotlight and dreams of one day winning the American Idol competition or being "Princess for a Day. " In the meantime she is busy doing all kinds of "girly things" such as playing with dolls and dressing up and getting new clothes. Jenyiah enjoys styling hair and is quite adept at making long braids. Other favorite pastimes include playing educational computer games, having stories read to her, and riding her bicycle and scooter. Jenyiah is a bundle of energy and doesn't enjoy any activity where she has to sit still.

The tour starts at 12:30 p.m. every weekday, led by enthusiastic volunteers in love with the grand old building. It is inspiring to hear the history, to discover the hidden delights in a structure so superficially familiar yet, really, so unknown. It is also terribly frustrating. The closing years of City Hall's first century are leaving the massive building desperately in need of care. With foundation walls 25 feet thick, it is far too sturdy to fall down or apart. But like an aging, forgotten princess clinging to a ratty coat, its dingy exterior sags pathetically.

STANTON, Del. - How races are run often is more determinant in results than what horses are running in those races. How horses undergo subtle changes over time also matters every bit as much as the history of those horses. When 2014 began, the idea of Belle Gallantey beating Princess of Sylmar in any race, much less Saturday's Grade I $750,000 Delaware Handicap would have been laughable. In 2013, Belle Gallantey was 1-for-14 and was claimed for $35,000 from her final race of the year.

Epic and intimate, historical and contemporary, moving and thought-provoking, the impressive "The Princess of Montpensier" has something for all and sundry but especially for those who like to believe that films can be as boldly intelligent as they are entertaining. As directed and co-written by the veteran French filmmaker Bertrand Tavernier with an expert cast of familiar and unfamiliar faces, "Princess" is a costume production rich in all manner of classic dramatic elements. Say hello to selfish schemes, bitter rivalries and the complexities of power and dynastic relationships at a time when France was divided by a bloody religious war between Catholics and Protestant Huguenots.

WHEN STORM Dixie's career came to an end 5 years ago, Ed Stanco and his five partners in King of Prussia Stable decided they might want to breed their mare. She had won her first race, but never won again. Their superstar trainer, Todd Pletcher, did not exactly give her a rousing endorsement, Stanco remembering him saying, "I wouldn't put a $10,000 stud fee into her. " Pletcher, one of the most intelligent and prudent people in horse racing, got Storm Dixie appraised for about $20,000.

ELMONT, N.Y. - Princess of Sylmar, the Kentucky Oaks-winning filly owned by West Chester's Ed Stanco, lost by a head in a stirring stretch duel that ended with Close Hatches winning the $1 million Ogden Phipps Stakes on Saturday. Last after a quick half-mile of 45 seconds, Princess of Sylmar moved up and halfway through the long stretch was battling furiously with archrival Beholder, Antipathy, and the eventual winner. After a side-by-side duel through the final furlong of the 11/16-mile event, the 4-year-old lost by a head bob. Antipathy was third and the favored Beholder fourth.

One of the most catastrophically mis-marketed films of the year, A Little Princess deserved a better fate and a bigger audience. A visually stunning adaptation of the Frances Hodgson Burnett classic about a fanciful young girl left in a strict, stuffy boarding school when her father goes off to war, the movie is an ode to the power of storytelling. (Burnett's book, published in 1888, was titled Sara Crewe.) With production design by longtime Tim Burton collaborator Bo Welch (the Indian prince fantasies are a picture-book marvel sprung to life)

ATLANTIC CITY - There are racks and racks of lollipop colored ball gowns, rows of glittery high heels, full displays of ballerina tutus encrusted with Swarovski crystals, and way more bling in the form of crowns and trophies than you can shake a bejeweled scepter at. This is where the beauty princesses - young women not quite beauty queens, but who really want to be - and their entourages converge at the Miss America Tradeshow, one of a variety of...

WHEN IT BECAME obvious early last year that Princess of Sylmar was going to be a special filly, Ed Stanco had one race he really wanted her to win - the Alabama Stakes at Saratoga, not far from where he grew up. Well, she won the Alabama in the midst of an historic four-race win streak that included the Kentucky Oaks, CCA Oaks and Beldame. This year, Stanco, along with his five partners, targeted one race they really want win - tomorrow's $750,000 Delaware Handicap at Delaware Park.

She wasn't even born when her father was making history. But Princess Elettra Marconi Giovanelli, the daughter of legendary Italian physicist Guglielmo Marconi, has faithfully spread the story of his work, sharing it this summer in New Jersey as part of a North American tour that also took her to schools and museums in Massachusetts and Canada. She visited the Infoage Science History Museum in the 2200 block of Marconi Road in Wall Township, N.J., to commemorate the 101st anniversary of her father's visit to the site on June 30, 1913.

CANNES, France - Eyebrows go up when a film like Grace of Monaco , which opened the 67th Cannes film festival Wednesday night, starts with the descriptor, "A fictional account inspired by real events. " It's an odd defensive crouch for a movie about an Irish German Catholic girl who ranks as the number-one Philadelphia blowout of all time, trading in life as the daughter of well-heeled contractor Jack Kelly for not one fairy tale, but two: Hollywood star, and princess of all she surveyed in the tiny principality of Monaco, wedged on a rock between France and Italy.

Days before the big game, Princess would let humans in on her secret by selecting one of two graham crackers offered to her by the zoo manager, whose palms were marked with the names of the teams.

Ed Stanco is an actuary. If anyone's going to calculate the odds of a first-time breeder's producing North America's best female horse, it should be him. "There are no odds," said Stanco. "It doesn't happen. Period. We're in uncharted territory. " An East Goshen, Chester County, resident who has dabbled for barely a decade in the sport he discovered as a boy, Stanco was talking about his 3-year-old filly, Princess of Sylmar, the Pennsylvania-bred who won four Grade I stakes races between May and September.
