For the last year now, state Rep. Sam Rohrer, a Berks County Republican, has been investigating the state's ACCESS program, which enables school districts to be reimbursed through Medicaid for services to special-education and emotionally troubled students. Some schools run the program through on-site health clinics; some of those are funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. How these facts became a conspiracy is anyone's guess. But sure enough, during a hearing in Harrisburg last Tuesday, a health-care attorney told Mr. Rohrer's panel that the ACCESS program and the health clinics are really part of a covert scheme to create a national health-care system, paid for by the Princeton-based Johnson foundation.

Princeton assistant men's track coach Steve Dolan calls senior Donn Cabral the ultimate competitor. Cabral's teammates refer to him as Track Jesus, because they trust him. "We know he's a warrior," sophomore Tom Hopkins said. Late Friday afternoon at Franklin Field, Cabral had to be. Because just about every other anchor in the closing 1,600-meter leg of the Penn Relays Distance Medley Championship of America race was within spitting distance of him. From the time he took the baton until they all headed around the last turn, they were virtually together, 13 strong if you're keeping score.

By Mark Edward Lender Our country just marked the 240th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence with the customary parades, fireworks, and family gatherings that have become American traditions. As welcome as these celebrations are, we should take a few moments to reflect upon the fact that - just 50 miles from Independence Hall, where that momentous document was signed - a modern academic institution is destroying the battlefield where the declaration's lofty ideals were secured by our nation's first soldiers.

ISSUE | PRINCETON Wilson's legacy Princeton University exercised good sense in retaining President Woodrow Wilson's name on its school of public and international affairs and an undergraduate residential college ("Princeton will retain Wilson's name," April 5). Medieval popes had armies and concubines, and George Washington and Thomas Jefferson owned slaves. Should we rob them of their transcendent contributions to a better world? Who among us can rise above our times and be judged out of historical context?

A controversy was brewing Thursday at Princeton High School, after students played a "Jews vs. Nazis" drinking game and documented the experience on social media. The students recorded the game, which they called "Holocaust Pong" or "Alcoholocaust," on the messaging app Snapchat, where it was seen by other students. Jamaica Ponder, a 17-year-old sophomore who runs a personal blog, captured a screenshot of the students pouring beer into plastic cups on a ping-pong table. One set of cups was arranged in the form a swastika, and the other formed a Star of David.

Princeton University will keep Woodrow Wilson's name on its school of public and international affairs and its undergraduate residential college despite the former president's racist past, the university announced Monday. The university had been under pressure from student protesters to remove the name of its former president because of Wilson's racist views and policies, including keeping black students from enrolling at Princeton when he headed it. But a board of trustees committee at Princeton decided to maintain Wilson's name, while committing to work on diversity and inclusion issues, and more fully educate people about Wilson's legacy.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Will Venable was at the Palestra for one of the more memorable nights in the arena's storied history. Penn rallied from an 18-point second-half deficit in February 2005 to defeat rival Princeton. The Palestra rocked and fans stormed the court. Quakers guard Tim Begley called it the favorite win of his career. Penn clinched the Ivy League title two weeks later. Venable, who joined the Phillies on Tuesday, was on the losing end. He was a senior for Princeton, as the Tigers unraveled under the pressure of Penn's full-court defense and raucous crowd.

PRINCETON - The final moment of Steve Donahue's first season at Penn amounted to one final possession when his team had a chance to finish an incredible comeback at Princeton. Penn had the ball on the baseline with 3.2 seconds left, trailing by a single point after being behind by 18 almost 15 minutes earlier. Jackson Donahue got the ball and headed for the hoop. He tried to drop the ball off to Darien Nelson-Henry right in front of the rim, but it came loose and the buzzer went off, Princeton winning, 72-71, after leading by 49-31.
