The gymnasium of the Panther Valley High School was recently transformed from a place of exercise to a place of formal tradition, as the Panther Battalion JROTC held its annual Military Ball.

"The decorations were fantastic and beautiful," said cadet Chelsea Digiglio.

The cadets socialized in the lobby of the high school, snacking on cheese, crackers, fruits, vegetables and a chocolate fountain, as they mingled, waiting for the receiving line to begin.

NEW YORK (AP) – A scarf can be a wardrobe's workhorse. It adds color, style, and, especially as the weather turns wintery, warmth.

Now, if you only knew how to tie the thing.

Don't go for a complicated knot, says Talbots' fashion director Tammy Vipperman. Flair largely comes from confidence, so any hesitation about tying the scarf will show, she adds, but there are plenty of easy knots that still kick up your outfit.

"If you can fold laundry and tie a basic knot, you can wear a scarf," she says.

LONDON (AP) – Prince William and Kate Middleton will marry April 29 in Westminster Abbey, the historic London church where Princess Diana's funeral was held.

Royal officials said Tuesday the couple chose the date because they wanted a spring wedding.

It's also the feast day of St. Catherine of Siena, whose name Middleton shares – though that is a coincidence.

The government said the day, a Friday, would be a public holiday.
