Town rejects affordable housing deal By Philip Sean Curran Staff Writer

Princeton has “rejected” a settlement agreement with affordable housing advocacy group Fair Share Housing Center, in a move that means a Superior Court judge will determine what Princeton’s affordable housing requirement will be. “We are disappointed that Princeton is attempting to find a way to build fewer homes that working families, seniors and people with disabilities can afford by refusing to proceed with the settlement we reached with them in principle two months ago,” said Anthony Campisi, spokesman for

the Fair Share Housing Center. “These homes are desperately needed. Despite our willingness to abide by the terms both sides had agreed to, we will now have to resolve this matter through litigation.” Princeton initially had been in a court case with other Mercer County towns to determine what their affordable housing requirement were, for a span from 1999 to 2025. But the municipality announced in April that it had reached a settlement in “principle” with Fair Share. A source familiar with the matter said 888 was the number of units that Princeton would be responsible for as per the agreedupon figure, with the town

needing to come up with a plan on how to satisfy its requirements. In part, the town would get credit for affordable housing created in the past, but it would have to demonstrate how it would meet future housing needs. Since April, however, the two sides could not close the deal. Two weeks ago, Mayor Liz Lempert charged that Fair Share was adding “extra conditions,” something the organization has denied. Ultimately, it will be up to Mercer County Superior Court Judge Mary C. Jacobson to rule on what Princeton’s responsibility will be. In a news release Tuesday, the town said it is “awaiting the

judge’s decision as well as maintaining ongoing settlement discussions with the Fair Share Housing Center.” Neither Mayor Lempert nor Council President Jenny Crumiller returned phone calls seeking comment Tuesday. Yet this comes with Mayor Lempert revealing Monday that her conflict of interest about her husband’s employment at Princeton University had kept her from fully participating in council discussions on the issue. Mayor Lempert, the wife of professor Ken Norman, told reporters that she has been involved, partly, in talks, about the now-rejected agreement. The deal would

have consisted of two parts, the actual number of affordable units the town is responsible for from 1999 to 2025 and a plan on how to achieve it, she said. “Because the plan has university properties in it, both myself and (Councilwoman) Heather (Howard) are recusing from that piece,” she said in following legal advice. “I can be part of general discussions, but I step out of the room when it’s specific on the plan when it involves the university.” Howard, a university employee, said in a text message last week, “I’m recused.” She did not respond to further requests for comment.

Coalition sues Rider to block sale of Choir College By Philip Sean Curran Staff Writer

215-354-3146

Rider University was sued Tuesday by members of a group of Westminster Choir College alumni, students and others seeking to block Rider from selling the music school, as a federal class action lawsuit tries to get the courts involved in deciding the future of Westminster. The 10 plaintiffs include two former Westminster trustees, C. Daniel Bergfeld and Howard McMorris, who were on the board when Westminster merged with Rider in the early 1990s. They contend Rider is violating terms of the merger agreement it had reached with Westminster back then. As a result, they want a federal judge to force Rider to surrender control of the Choir College or impose other remedies that include having the court compel Rider to merge Westminster with another academic institution or entity. The timing of the litigation comes with Rider in the midst of searching for potential suitors for Westminster, with the suit saying that Rider intends to stop operating the music school after the 2017-18 academic year. The plaintiffs claim Rider intends to use the sale of the school to plug a deficit and construct buildings on the Rider campus in Lawrenceville. “When the two schools were merged, Rider agreed in a solemn undertaking to continue to operate and fund Westminster,” said Bruce See SALE, Page 11

SAVE’s new director doggedly determined to succeed By Philip Sean Curran Staff Writer

Heather L. Achenbach walked out of her office Wednesday afternoon, into the summer sunshine, “probably to walk a dog,” she said on the third day of her new job. Achenbach, the recently hired executive director of SAVE, A Friend to Homeless Animals, in Skillman, leads an organization with 20 employees and an annual budget of around $1 million, not to mention volunteers who help the nonprofit pet shelter fulfill its mission. SAVE, which had been in Princeton since its founding in 1941, cares for dogs and cats from a multi-million dollar campus that opened in December 2015, on Route 601, that includes a shelter and a renovated 19th-centurymansion that serves as SAVE’s office. In an interview, Achenbach explained how a now 43-year-old woman originally from central Pennsylvania launched a career in

the pharmaceutical industry, why she left a six-figure-income job and what her vision is for the organization she is charged with running. She believes SAVE has “a lot of room for growth and opportunity to support this community and homeless pets.” “And that is because I don’t think we’ve achieved the visibility that we could, so we have a lot of room for opportunity and visibility,” she said. Her road to SAVE started in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania, not far from Hershey, in a town small enough where the entire population could fit into Princeton University’s Jadwin Gymnasium and have plenty of room left over. She descended from German immigrants; one grandfather was a coal miner, another was a businessman. Growing up, she was the middle child of three siblings, in between two brothers. She said her love of animals came from a cousin who lived on a farm. “We would go there quite a bit to visit, and I particularly liked

going because they always had barn cats who had kittens,” Achenbach recalled of the childhood experience. “And my obsession was going and finding the kittens and playing with the kittens.” She majored in psychology at Ursinus College and, right after graduating in 1996, she took a job working for a pharmaceutical company. Other career stops would follow, including the last, at Novo Nordisk. She did well financially, she lived in a 1,600-square-foot townhouse in Montgomery and she worked as a senior director managing 165 people. But she became burned out, and she could not see herself spending another 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry, into her early 60s. “I always knew where I was going, always,” she said. “And it was always going to another position, to do something different. So sometimes I made lateral moves, sometimes I was climbing up the corporate ladder. But I was always

moving onto something or to a project, something that I found exciting and new and challenging.” But she found herself not sure what the next step would be. Her ego told her to become a vice president, but her heart told her something else. “I think it became what is fulfilling to me,” she said. “And I think for 20 years, chasing jobs in the pharmaceutical industry … See SAVE, Page 11

Victim confronts convicted rapist at sentencing and asks ‘Why?’ By Philip Sean Curran Staff Writer

Mercer County Superior Court Judge Peter E. Warshaw that he wanted “forgiveness.” But the judge, a former Monmouth County Prosecutor used to seeing the worst of society, said he was struck by Arias-Santiago’s “audacity” to seek forgiveness without apologizing for what he had done. The judge sentenced Arias-Santiago to seven years in state prison for sexually assaulting the then28-year-old woman and to five years for committing a burglary, also on Birch Avenue, two weeks prior to the rape. The two prison terms, due to run concurrently, were in line with the plea bargain that Arias-San-

She stood there, weeping inside a Trenton courtroom Friday morning, asking a question of the rapist who had attacked her in her sleep last June in Princeton and now was a few feet away. “Why?” she asked Pedro Arias-Santiago, who sat at the defense table listening to his Spanish interpreter relay her words to him in the language he had learned in his native Guatemala. He offered no answer for a crime that he had committed by illegally entering the woman’s home on Birch Avenue and then raping her. Earlier, he had told

showed no remorse, a man, who when Princeton Police arrested him last year, was found with some of the victim’s clothing for what the judge said was Arias-Santiago’s “own personal gratification.” As for the victim, she waited in Judge Warshaw’s courtroom for the case to be called, with her attacker entering shortly before 11 a.m. Given the chance to speak, she walked to the lectern in front of the judge, uttered a few words and then broke down. Tears rolled down her face. She said Arias-Santiago had “invaded my space,” told him that she was “so much stronger that you” and that she hoped “you get

what you deserve.” She had grown up in Jersey City, where bad things happen to people all the time, she said. “You wouldn’t think something like this happened in Princeton,” she said. Later, the judge spoke of the “courage” she had shown in getting up to speak. The judge noted that although Arias-Santiago has no priors, he believed it likely Arias-Santiago would commit another crime. He issued a sex offender’s restraining order against him, so that he cannot have any contact with the victim. According to court records, he also goes by the alias Pedro Olegario.

Town considers severing ties with ARC-sponsored cleaning service By Philip Sean Curran Staff Writer

Princeton is poised to stop using a cleaning service made up of developmentally disabled workers from The ARC Mercer, a nonprofit organization that has been getting work from the town. ARC Mercer cleans municipal government buildings through an arrangement in which ACC-

SES New Jersey, a nonprofit the town has a contract with, then subcontracts out to The ARC Mercer, Mayor Liz Lempert said. She declined to get into specifics about the change or say if the town was not happy with the job The ARC Mercer had been doing. Officials received two bids from vendors, with CNS Cleaning Co. Inc., of Bensalem, Pennsylvania, the low bidder. The company was listed on the agenda for Monday’s council meeting to receive a $134,460 contract from the town. Making the change was due to save the municipality about $36,000 a year. The council, however, delayed a decision for a couple of weeks, so that officials can hear from their

pas

s and

director of infrastructure and operations, Robert Hough, who was not at the meeting. Councilman Bernard P. Miller, who sits on the public works committee, said it “would be rather unusual” for the governing body to reject one of Hough’s recommendations “without hearing from him.” At Miller’s suggestion, the council carried the matter until its next meeting, scheduled for July 10. Prior to Monday, Mayor Lempert had said there were “numerous reasons” for why the town was making the change, and said the town likes to put contracts out to bid “routinely” as a best practice. But Steven Cook, executive director of The Arc Mercer, was blindsided when contacted last week

by a reporter that the town was dropping his nonprofit. He said he had been in talks with the municipality about putting in a plan to increase supervision, assess whether the buildings’ cleanliness met industry standards and establish a channel for the town to make complaints. He said there were prior problems, but he said his side took steps to correct them. He said that since then, there were no frequent or significant complaints by the town, except for a few instances when trash cans were not emptied. He said at the request of the town, ACCSES New Jersey did “several inspections” of The Arc Mercer’s work and found the job always met or exceeded industry standards.

Asked if the move had to do with poor performance, Mayor Lempert said last week that “it’s not appropriate for me to talk about the performance of our contractors or our employees.” At Monday’s council meeting, Cook talked of lingering “friction” that has existed since The ARC Mercer — which serves Hamilton and other towns in Mercer — has been cleaning the buildings starting in 2013. “In the merger, when a lot of public works people had to lose their job or be demoted, there was friction,” Cook said. “And I went through the logs going all the way back to that merger until today of the communications between my disabled staff and their

supervisor and those that were left behind, and there was some animosity.” He sought a delay so the town could get more bids, and offered that ARC Mercer could bid on the project on its own. “I can get the number down to make it work,” he said. Town administrator Marc D. Dashield, during the meeting, felt doing that would be “unfair,” in advice to the council. “We went out to a public bid, everybody had an opportunity to go out for that public bid,” Dashield told officials. “At this point then to say, now that you know what the bids were, to have another person come in and be able to redo the process, I think is unfair at this point.”

PRINCETON: Section of Route 206 to be Stiff Joints? Tight Muscles? closed for bridge repair, replacement By Philip Sean Curran Staff Writer

A section of Route 206 will be closed starting Thursday, July 6, at 12:01 a.m. and remain closed through to the end of the year to replace one bridge and repair another bridge from the 18th century, the New Jersey Department

of Transportation has said. The closures will mean motorists will need to use detours to navigate the area. Local car traffic going north on Route 206 will have to use Carter, Rosedale and Elm roads to get back onto 206, the town said. Southbound motorists will

take Lovers Lane, Mercer Street and Hutchinson Drive to reconnect with Route 206, the town said. The town has said that from July 10 until the end of July, southbound motorists will need to use Province Line Road instead of Hutchinson, because PSE&G is doing gas main replacement.

Trucks going north will need to take a wider detour by using a combination of I-95, Route 31, and Route 202 to meet up with Route 206 at the Somerville traffic circle, the town said. Southbound trucks will have to use 518 west and Carter Road to pick up Route 206.

STATE WE’RE IN

N.J. water supply plan rings alarm By Michele S. Byers

New Jersey’s almost 9 million residents make this state we’re in denser than India or Japan! And the population is projected to grow to 10.2 to 10.4 million by 2040. Will we have enough water for our residents, farmers, businesses, industries - and the environment - now and in the future? That question is front and center following the release of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s draft 2017-2022 update of the New Jersey Statewide Water Supply Plan - the first update in 21 years. According to the plan, “Generally, New Jersey has sufficient water available to meet needs into the foreseeable future” - provided the state effectively increases water efficiency through conservation and reuse, promotes public awareness, addresses deteriorating infrastructure and maintenance issues, and pursues key water supply projects. These are big challenges! But the plan only looks ahead eight years. This short horizon undermines meaningful planning and minimizes the magnitude of the challenges. It’s clear that these water supply challenges will not be easy to solve. Annual water use in New Jersey peaked during 1990-2015, and per person potable water use decreased from about 155 gallons per day to 125 gallons per day during that time due to more efficient plumbing fixtures. But consumptive water use (where water is taken up by plants or products or evaporated, so that it is no longer available) continues to rise. The plan found that the greatest stresses to water supply include water lost to evaporation through outdoor water use and out-ofbasin wastewater transfers. It found that some areas of New Jersey already use tens of millions of gallons more water per day than the capacity of their watersheds, and that other parts of the state will likely experience similar deficits in the near future. The Water Supply Plan identifies four of the state’s 20 “Watershed Management Areas” (WMAs) as stressed, with 11 more that would become stressed if all authorized water withdrawal permits were fully utilized. For example, water demand in much of Salem and Cumberland counties outstrips local supply by 70 million gallons a day. In Atlantic County, the deficit is 25 million gallons daily. In the Upper Passaic River Watershed Management Area, encompassing parts of Morris, Sussex and Essex counties, the deficit could grow from the current 2 million gallons per day to 5 million daily by 2020. The Arthur Kill WMA is estimated to double its deficit by 2020. And “masked” within larger watershed areas are smaller watersheds - for example, in the Highlands that are also in deficit as documented by the Highlands Regional Master Plan. When aquifers and streams in watersheds become stressed, the environment pays the price. Streams and wetlands dry up, harming both aquatic and non-aquatic wildlife and entire ecosystems. According to the report, total peak water

Summer Bridge Program golf outing another succes To the editor: The Princeton-Blairstown Center (PBC) held its second annual Links to Youth Golf Outing at Fox Hollow Golf Club in Branchburg, NJ on June 16. The event raised more than $25,000 in support of our Summer Bridge Program, which addresses the “summer learning gap” and builds social and emotional skills by providing a free week-long program for young people from low-income communities, including 200 students from Trenton, NJ. More than 50 golfers participated in the event with others joining for dinner and cocktails. The winning foursome included Joshua Lopes of CT, Neil Pomphrey of Lawrenceville, NJ, Sarah Tantillo of Belmar, NJ, and Chris Van Buren of Princeton. PBC empowers young people, primarily from under-resourced communities, to strengthen their social-emotional skills through experiential, environmental, and adventure-based programming. We collaborate with schools, university partners, and communitybased agencies to develop in youth, a deepened self-awareness, responsible decision-making, teamwork, and leadership skills. Our volunteers strive for a future in which young people exhibit personal resilience and compassion, embrace expanded possibilities for their lives, and enact positive change within their communities and the world. Golfers who joined us last year, as well as those joining us for the first time, all had a great day of golf and camaraderie and were

County clerk to detail vote-by-mail initiative Mercer County Clerk Paula Sollami Covello will host a press conference announcing the details and answering questions about a county-wide vote-by-mail effort at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, July 19, in room 212 of the McDade County Administration Building, 640 South Broad Street in Trenton. The last presidential election had some of the lowest voter turnout in history, with only about 55 percent of voting age citizens participating and less than 60 percent of registered voters casting a ballot. As a result, states are thinking of other options to encourage voter participation in the democratic process. New Jersey is no exception to these trends with only 12 percent of eligible registered voters turning out to cast votes in the 2017 primary election. Out of the 230,000 registered voters in Mercer County, fewer than 14 percent turned out to vote in the 2017 primary, despite there being a gubernatorial race leading the ballot. As a result, in order to encourage flexibility, accessibility and raise democratic participation in the United States’ election process, Covello, with the support of the Mercer County Executive and the Board of Chosen Freeholders, is pioneering a new vote-by-mail pilot initiative.

Consumers want retailers to be good citizens

To the editor: Given the recent exit of the U.S. from the Paris climate agreement, it is up to all of us to continue direct action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our own community. This is why I have joined the Keep It Cool campaign to reduce energy waste in Princeton this summer. Retailers that run the air conditioning during hot summer months and open their doors to attract customers drive up costs, waste energy, increase local pollution and stress the power grid. Keep It Cool (from generation180.org) gives consumers an easy way to encourage retail stores around the country to close their doors and stop wasting energy. According to utilities experts, the average store with a door open over the summer wastes about 4,200 kWh of electricity, releasing about 2.2 tons of carbon dioxide and other substances - the same amount of pollution emitted by a diesel semi-truck driving from New York to Miami. Some cities have already enacted laws requiring retailers to close their doors when the air conditioning is running. In 2015, New York City passed a law requiring closed doors as part of a sweeping sustainability plan geared towards reducing carbon emissions 80 percent by 2050. Informed consumers want retailers to be good citizens. As a dedicated downtown shopper, I avoid stores that choose to prop their doors open while their AC is running, because I feel that their owners are showing lack of care for the climate. The Princeton community should support retail businesses, but also be dedicated to reducing waste and pollution. I encourage retailers to keep their doors closed to conserve energy, starting now.

A member of the Mercer County Park Commission’s Naturalist staff will act as a host to the guests by interpreting the banding process, as well as answering questions about the purpose, goals and importance of conservation projects of this nature. As part of the research taking place, wild birds will be gently and safely captured in delicate nets by a licensed bird bander and ornithologist. This program requires registration and children over 6 years old are welcome. Please be aware this program is held in a field; shelter and restrooms will not be available. Fee is $20 per adult, $10 per child. For more information and to register, please call 609-8883218 or e-mail natureprograms@mercercounty.org.

Park commission plans summer nature camps

The Mercer County Park Commission’s Nature Programs will host thrilling and educational summer camps for children ranging in age from pre-K to eighth grade. The summer camps are developed and instructed by the Park Commission’s team of Naturalists. Making its debut this summer is the anticipated Archaeology Camp to be held at the Tulpehaking Nature Center in Hamilton the week of July 24 through 28 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Dig into summer fun and follow in the footsteps of professional archaeologists. Here, attendants can conduct excavations at one of the most significant archaeological sites in the Eastern United States, the Abbott Farm National Historic Landmark. Your “junior archaeologist-in-training” will practice the skills and methods that archaeologists use to unearth information about past cultures, including Native Americans, Revolutionary War patriots and exiled kings. Throwing with an atlatl, tool and pottery making, and other challenges are on the schedule. Appropriate for children entering grades 4 through 6. The Aquatic Adventure Camp will be held at Mercer County Marina, July 31 through Aug. 4 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Designed to balance the fun of summer with science, Aquatic Adventure Camp will have your child diving into fresh water ecology, testing Mercer Lake’s water, kayaking creeks and coves and observing wildlife. Aquatic Adventure Camp also includes activities such as fishing, taking a ride on the pontoon boat, hiking and a cookout.

State Continued from Page 4 demands are currently estimated at about 1.3 billion gallons of water per day, leaving a water supply surplus of 212 million gallons. But a surplus in Sussex County doesn’t help Cape May. Water supplies are not often readily transportable to places with water deficits. And the surplus will quickly dwindle. By 2020, demand for potable water will rise by an additional 120 million gallons a day, cutting the surplus by more than half. That’s only three years from now! The plan raises some critical questions:• Will New Jersey have enough water for 10.2 to 10.4 million people? • Will we learn to conserve our water supplies to ensure sufficient water during droughts? Outdoor use of potable water supplies is of particular concern. • How will the state address the impacts of climate change, which may include hotter summers with greater water demands? • What about coastal sea level rise, which will increase the potential for saltwater intrusion into southern Jersey’s water supply aquifers? • Will population growth occur where water is currently available, or will it occur in areas that would require new infrastructure projects that could take years to develop? • How will New Jersey pay for the billions of dollars in infrastructure investments needed? • Will we protect water quality, and take action to reduce pollution from stormwater and runoff? The report provides a data-rich portrait of these se-

rious water supply challenges, but it falls short on solutions. New Jersey sorely needs a comprehensive set of action plans on water - policy, planning, legislative, regulatory, infrastructure repair, construction and funding to ensure an adequate longterm water supply for our state’s growing population while protecting our natural ecosystems that depend on water.

MONTGOMERY

Forum starts the conversation on nicotine addiction By Lea Kahn Staff Writer

It only takes the blink of an eye to become addicted to the opioids in prescription painkillers, and just a little bit longer to become addicted to the nicotine in cigarettes. That’s why the Montgomery/Rocky Hill Municipal Alliance and the Montgomery Township Health Department joined forces to present a special forum on nicotine addiction, which now includes e-cigarettes. “This is the start of the conversation,” Montgomery Township Health Officer Stephanie Carey said. The focus of the forum was how to protect children from tobacco, vaping and other nicotine-laced products, she said. Speakers ranging from Superintendent of Schools Nancy Gartenberg to Princeton Health Officer Jeff Grosser and Karen Blumenfeld of NJGASP an anti-smoking organization - shared their per-

spectives and actions they have taken to stamp out tobacco use. Gartenberg, the Montgomery Township schools superintendent, said she has been involved in efforts to make school campuses smoke-free. Soon after she arrived in Montgomery, she said, the school board approved a policy that banned e-cigarettes. But as quickly as changes are made to tobacco-related policies, the tobacco companies respond by changing the name of the product and its packaging, and then marketing it to young people, she said. E-cigarettes, for example, are billed as less harmful than cigarettes. They use water vapor and add flavoring to attract young people. They are described as an alternative to cigarettes. Lately, overall tobacco use has declined and that’s one reason for the push toward e-cigarettes, Gartenberg said. Tobacco companies know that if

they target a younger audience, they will have customers for life, she said. Meanwhile, the school district is fully supportive of the Health Department’s efforts to prevent children from using tobacco products, Gartenberg said. The school district tries to educate the students about the dangers of tobacco and e-cigarettes. And e-cigarettes are dangerous, said Grosser, the Princeton health officer. Although they are touted as a safer alternative to tobacco cigarettes, they contain an assortment of chemicals that are carcinogenic. “We have no idea what is in e-cigarettes,” Grosser said. The federal Food and Drug Administration does not regulate them, although their use among young people soared by 900 percent between 2011 and 2015, he said. To combat cigarette use and nicotine addiction, Princeton instituted a

ban on smoking out-ofdoors in 2000, Grosser said. The tobacco companies sued the former Princeton Borough, and lost. The ban has been extended to public buildings. More recently, Princeton adopted an ordinance that raises the legal age for purchasing tobacco products from 19 years old to 21 years old. State law sets the legal age at 19. Princeton also adopted a licensing regulation for stores that sell e-cigarettes, he said. There were seven stores that sold ecigarettes and now there are four. Karen Blumenfeld, the keynote speaker and the executive director of NJGASP, encouraged efforts to limit young people’s access to tobacco products - including e-cigarettes. That’s because smoking is the number one preventable cause of death, Blumenfeld said. She questioned how a product that is “designed to hurt

you” could be allowed on the market. Although battling tobacco companies might seem like an insurmountable task, it is possible to fight them and win, Blumenfeld said. She pointed to East Brunswick Township, which initiated a ban on cigarette vending machines. The town was sued and initially lost the case, but prevailed when the lawsuit reached the New Jersey Supreme Court. “It all starts on the local level,” Blumenfeld said. Towns can go for the “low-hanging fruit,” she said. They can ban smoking in the parks, whether it is tobacco cigarettes or e-cigarettes. A dozen Mercer County towns have banned smoking in municipal parks. The movement to restrict tobacco sales to those who are at least 21 years old is gaining ground, she said. It puts the burden on the shop-

keeper, not the purchaser, to ensure that the buyer is 21 years old. “You can make changes beyond your dreams. But remember, you will get opposition,” Blumenfeld said. Opponents will argue that an 18-year-old can join the military, but cannot buy a pack of cigarettes. “If you are passionate about it, you will be successful in making Montgomery Township smokeand tobacco-free,” she said. Carey, the Montgomery Township health officer, encouraged attendees to speak to their children, their friends, their neighbors and Township Committee. But any proposed policies would not be presented to the governing body until fall, she said. “When we work together as a community, that’s how we make change. May the conversation continue,” Carey said.

Cheskis replaces Smith in bid for Township Committee seat By Lea Kahn Staff Writer

Citing new and increasing professional responsibilities, Montgomery Township Committee member Richard Smith has bowed out of the race for re-election to the governing body. In Smith’s place, town-

ship Planning Board chairman David Cheskis has been endorsed by the Montgomery Township Republican Organization to run for Township Committee in the Nov. 7 general election. The term is for three years. “I am excited to be the Republican Party candidate for Township Com-

mittee. I want to share my vision and ideas with residents over the coming weeks and months,” Cheskis said. Cheskis, who moved to Montgomery in 1998, said it is a “great” place to live and he wants to make it even better. He has been active in the community, and he and his wife have

raised their three children here. Cheskis served as the president of the Pike Run Master Association Board of Trustees, and he is now Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 850 and Cubmaster of Pack 850. At the municipal level, Cheskis chairs the Planning Board and has served

as the chairman and vice chairman of the Zoning Board of Adjustment. He serves on the Site Plan/Subdivision Committee and the Master Plan Committee. “I have been active in the community for 20 years, and serving on Township Committee would be an extension of

that public service. It would be a true honor,” Cheskis said. Cheskis praised Smith, noting that “from reining in spending to reducing debt to preserving open space, he has made a positive impact on our town that will be felt for years to come. His are big shoes to fill.”

Coldwell volunteers staff Homefront event Volunteers from the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Princeton Junction real estate office helped out at the Homefront Family Campus in Ewing as part of the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Cares Day event June 23. Coldwell Banker volunteers organized, cleaned and sorted at the community center, which provides aid to homeless families. The volunteers helped prepare art sketchbooks and painted posters for an upcoming Art Jam Festival. They organized and cleaned a storage facility of supplies and furniture, cleaned and created additional storage space for a second art room, and sorted and organized donated clothing by season. The volunteers who took part included Coldwell Banker Cares Ambassador and organizer Theza Friedman, Maggie Amira, Gilbert Cheeseman, Amrita Cheema, Seto Chice, Kelly Crounse, Tanya Dorfman, Carolyn Gramata, Joe Gulino, Krupa Gundu, Lois Miller, Dave Pota, JoAnn Parla, Kathy Printon, Marina Shikman, Betsy Silverman, Steve Egan from Coldwell Banker Home Loans and office manager Karen Wagner.

Candidates open Princeton campaign office Andrew Zwicker, Roy Freiman, and Laurie Poppe, the Democratic ticket running for office in the 16th Legislative District, celebrated the opening of their campaign headquarters in Princeton with a barbecue June 25. The event was attended by volunteers, supporters, candidates, and elected officials from all four counties that make up LD 16; Mercer, Middlesex, Hunterdon, and Somerset. Assemblyman Zwicker was elected to office in 2015. He is running for reelection with Roy Freiman, who is seeking the open Assembly seat in LD16, and Laurie Poppe who is challenging Republican Sen. Kip Bateman for the state Senate seat. The 16th Legislative District includes the townships of Delaware, Raritan, Readington, Branchburg, Hillsborough, Montgomery, and South Brunswick, the Princeton municipality and the Manville, Millstone, Rocky Hill, Flemington, and Somerville boroughs.

Zwicker launches summer book drive Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker is collecting books to distribute to local children in an effort to help students maintain achievement gains made during the school year. “Research shows that daily reading is one of the best ways to combat the summer slide and narrow the achievement gap, but so many children have no ageappropriate books to read at home,” said Zwicker (DHunterdon/Mercer/Middlesex/Somerset). “Giving children the gift of a book to call their own is a small gesture that can improve literacy among young people and make our community stronger.” Book donations appropriate for students in kindergarten through grade 12 will be accepted through July 6 at Zwicker’s legislative district office, located at 23 Orchard Road, Skillman, NJ 08858. New books are pre-

ferred, but gently used books also will be accepted. Questions regarding the book drive may be directed to Zwicker’s office at 609454-3147. Collection bins also will be available at certain local library locations. Interested parties may contact Zwicker’s office for details regarding dropping books off at a library. “Reading introduces young people to innovative ideas, feeding their innate curiosity and prompting a desire to learn even more,” said Zwicker. “All children deserve the opportunity to explore new worlds, challenge themselves and tap into their full potential through the pages of a book.”

Blood donations needed

Following several rounds of severe winter weather in many parts of the country, the American Red Cross urges eligible blood and platelet donors to help restock its shelves to overcome a shortage.

To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors are encouraged to make appointments and complete the RapidPass online health history questionnaire at redcrossblood.org/rapidpass to save time when donating. Or visit Central New Jersey Donor Center, 707 Alexander Rd., Suite 701, Princeton. Hours are: Mondays: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. (platelet pheresis); Tuesdays: 12:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. (whole blood and platelet pheresis); Fridays: 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (whole blood and platelet pheresis); Saturdays: 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. (whole blood).

Sale Continued from Page 1 I. Afran, the lawyer for the Coalition to Save Westminster Choir College in Princeton, in a news release announcing the suit. “Rider cannot sell out this worldrenowned music college simply to cover its own deficit.” In March, Rider President Gregory G. Dell’Omo announced that the university would look to sever ties with the Choir College; the two institutions had merged in 1992. But in charting the future of a university he had been leading since August 2015, Dell’Omo said Rider would seek a “new partner” for Westminster and had hired the firm of Pricewater-

house Coopers to find one. The options, laid out then, included finding an institution to take on the Choir College and keep it in Princeton, or if the institution wanted only the music school, Rider then would be left to sell the campus to a third party. “We disagree with the contentions of this lawsuit, believe we have strong defenses and that we will prevail. We also do not believe such litigation serves the best interests of Westminster Choir College,” said Rider spokeswoman Kristine A. Brown on Wednesday. “As we’ve told the Westminster community,” Brown said, “we firmly believe that the Choir Col-

lege’s legacy can best be achieved with an institution that is better positioned to make the necessary investments. Working closely with the Board of Trustees and an outside firm, we’ve made significant progress on our search to find a new institution willing to acquire Westminster Choir College and continue its rich tradition.” But the lawsuit claims the university “has failed to make good faith efforts” to find another academic institution to take on Westminster. “Because Rider did not seek out merger partners from other universities but only offered to sell Westminster’s property at market value, the only entities re-

sponding to Rider‘s solicitation circular are real estate developers or for-profit commercial businesses that do not operate nonprofit fine arts or liberal arts institutions of higher education,” the suit alleged. The suit contends the university is considering offers from the likes of ERP Properties United States, Guanghua Education Group, Bloom, Garden Homes of Princeton, Weichert Development Company, Toll Brothers and others. The lawsuit makes good on a promised threat the coalition had made last week: of suing to protect Westminster. The leader of the group, Constance Fee, in the same news release,

Burrows as executive director and went through three interviews, with her prospective employer interested in her ability to manage people and to raise money for a nonprofit that relies on donations. “With every interview I had, I felt like I was hitting it further and further out of the park,” she said. “When I left after my last interview where I had met with the staff and all those board members, I told people … I felt like I floated out of here in a cloud, I drove home on one.” Satisfied that she had done everything to get the job, she was comfortable

with the outcome, no matter how it turned out. Hired for the position, she runs a nonprofit that has to find ways to sustain itself. That means getting people to continue financially supporting an organization that went from the equivalent of operating from a slum in the South Bronx, in a run-down facility on Herrontown Road, to the equivalent of living on Park Avenue. “That could easily be mistaken as having enough money to sustain itself,” she said. “So we’re faced with a new challenge, and our new challenge is we need to keep people moti-

vated to keep us funded or we can’t maintain this amazing property.” She has lofty ambitions. “My ultimate goal, and it is the goal of SAVE, is that we put an end to homeless animals,” she said, “which means we’re getting people to spay and neuter and to care for animals such that they don’t need to be housed temporarily here anymore.”

explained why the coalition went this route. “Rider had initially indicated that members of the coalition would be invited to participate in negotiations. When that opportunity never materialized, and no effort to schedule a followup meeting by the deadline was made, we were left with only one option, which was to do exactly what we said Obituaries

was really fulfilling for me, I felt great about it. And I just started to say, looking higher doesn’t look good to me anymore.” With enough money in the bank, she felt secure enough to quit her job and take time off. She left at the end of June 2016, embarking on a journey that eventually led her to work as a receptionist for her veterinarian, who told her about the opening at SAVE. She was familiar with the organization, one that she had supported financially and from which she adopted two pets. At the end of March, she applied to re-

Police seek leads on church burglary By Lea Kahn Staff Writer

The Princeton Police Department is seeking the public’s help in finding the man who burglarized the Princeton United Methodist Church June 19. The burglar entered the church, which is on the corner of Nassau Street and Vande-

venter Avenue, between 2 and 4:45 p.m. June 19. He was observed on surveillance video to be holding a metal post that he used to force his way into a locked office in the church. Several unlocked offices also were entered. Two violins and miscellaneous items were missing. Anyone who knows the

suspect or knows of his whereabouts should call police Det. Chris Craven at 609-921-2100, ext. 2160, or the confidential tip line at 609-688-2049. Confidential tips can be emailed to the Police Department at https://princeton.seamlessdocs.com/f/confidentialtipreport.

GROUP B STREP Group B strep infections are caused by bacteria that tend to live inside a person’s intestines or around the genital area. The bacteria are quite common and usually don’t cause any problems in healthy adults; however, group B strep infections are famous for being particularly dangerous to newborn babies. Older adults, diabetics, and people with chronic liver disease are also at risk for becoming ill with a group B strep infection. Group B strep can lead to more serious infections with symptoms including fever, difficulty concentrating, urinary tract infections, bone infections, blood infections, and other problems. If group B strep is suspected, the doctor will culture the area that is infected and then treat it with a course of antibiotics. Many healthy people carry group B strep bacteria in their bodies. The bacteria aren’t sexually transmitted, and they’re not spread through food or water. You may carry group B strep in your body for just a short period of time, it may come and go, or you may always have it. To schedule an appointment, please call ROBERT PLATZMAN, D.O. at 609-9218766. My practice is located at 601 Ewing St., Suite C7, in Princeton. I accept Medicare and most insurance. Our website, www.drrobertplatzman. com, has more information about our practice. P.S. Pregnant women are tested in their third trimester for group B strep so that they can be treated in order to protect their infants.

we would do, when we said we would do it, and proceed with legal action,” said Fee, president of the group. The suit was filed in federal court in New York City, not in New Jersey. The suit says that the case should be heard there, given that McMorris and fellow plaintiff Mona Davids live there and Rider does business across the Hudson as well.

The son of Richard & Jean Pluta, Robert was born in South Plainfield, NJ, and grew up in Skillman, NJ. He graduated from Montgomery High School in 1978 where his love of music began. He graduated from Wheaton College in 1982 with a B.M.E in Music Education, and The University of Georgia in 1993 with a M.Ed., in Communication Sciences and Disorders. Robert started his Air Force career as Principal Clarinetist with the Robbins AFB band. In addition he played in the Air Force Reserve Band (581st AFRES), the Dixieland Express, and the Jazz Band. He went on to serve as an audiologist in various direct and program capacities. He was a champion of hearing conservation in the USAF. After retiring from the Air Force as a Major, he continued to serve the Veterans of America in the Veterans Administration as an audiologist. Music was a huge part of Robert’s life. He was an organist and choir director at various churches. Robert has also sung with the San Antonio Mastersingers, and most recently the Corpus Christi Chorale. He was proficient on many different instruments. One of his prized possessions was a mandolin which he was teaching himself to play. Bobby loved to read classic literature and volunteered at the local library during high school. He taught himself Japanese, loved to go biking, and earned his first degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. He received his certificate in Air Conditioning Applied Technology. He planned to complete his certificate in American Sign Language interpretation and his Associates Degree in Air Conditioning Applied Technology. Bobby is survived by aunt and uncle Sue Ann Peterson Smith and Edward J. Peterson of Macon GA .and was preceded in death by his grandparents James A. Peterson and Dorothy A. Peterson. Father and son passed away while hiking in Carlsbad Caverns National Park on a Father’s Day trip. Robert is survived by his wife of 28 years Lillian Kay Pluta, his Father Richard J. Pluta his son Kristofer Ian Pluta, all of Corpus Christi, TX, and sister Diane T. Loomis of La Palma, CA. He was preceded in death by his mother, Jean F. Pluta. Memorial Service will be held on July 7 at 2:00 PM at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Corpus Christi, TX. Private internment to be determined, Macon Memorial Park, Macon, GA. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the Corpus Christi Chorale, the Men in Mission from Galilean Lutheran Church in Corpus Christi, Carlsbad Caverns National Park, or Big Bend National Park.

CHEW YOUR FOOD Most mothers have told their children not to gobble down their food and eat it more slowly. As it turns out, this piece of advice is as wise as almost every other bit of guidance that mothers give their children. Chewing food completely (try ten times per bite) not only helps with digestion and nutrient absorption, but it may also help protect against infection. Researchers recently found that chewing food (known as “mastication”) can stimulate the release of “T helper 17” (Th17) cells in the mouth, which fight off harmful bacteria. However, too many Th17 cells can be counterproductive to the health of the gums. Researchers hope to find a healthy balance that might someday lead to reduced infection. Your child’s first dental visit should take place after the first tooth appears, but no later than the first birthday.

Why so early? As soon as your baby has teeth, he or she can get cavities. Being proactive about your child’s dental health today can help keep his or her smile healthy for life.  To schedule an appointment, please call 609-924-8300. Our office is conveniently located at Montgomery Knoll, 192 Tamarack Circle, Skillman. Our commitment is to relationships of partnership, respect, and appreciation. We offer cosmetic and family dentistry, as well as Zoom® and Invisalign®. Please e-mail your questions or comments to: drjamescally@yahoo.com

P.S. Because it takes approximately 20-25 minutes for the hormones in your body to reach your brain to tell you that you are full, eating slowly helps prevent overeating.

After a strong four-year career with the University of Miami, Princeton Day School graduate Davon Reed was selected by the Phoenix Suns in the second round of the NBA draft.

PDS grad Reed picked in NBA draft By Bob Nuse Sports Editor

When Davon Reed needed a place to relax prior to last week’s NBA draft, the Princeton Day School graduate turned to an old friend and a former coach. “There was a lot leading up to that moment,” former Princeton Day School basketball coach Paris McLean said after his former player was drafted by the Phoenix Suns with the 32nd pick in the NBA draft. “It was years and years of hard work by Davon. And at the end, prior to the draft, he took so much more time and effort working out for 18 teams over the course of a few weeks. The day of the draft, (PDS graduate) Kenny Holzhammer contacted me. He and Davon go way back to their days growing up in Ewing. Kenny said Davon was looking to relax what do you think? They came over to Princeton Academy and it was just us and Davon’s little brother putting up shots and having fun and talk-

ing about everything but that draft. That was great.” McLean was with Reed later that night when he found out he would be chosen with the second pick of the second round of the draft. After a standout career at the University of Miami, Reed now gets a shot at playing in the NBA. “It was a crazy process from the start,” Reed said in an interview on the Suns’ official website. “I tried to wake up on my own time. I didn’t set an alarm or anything. I went to go clear my mind in the gym. I shot with some of my old friends and my old high school coach and my little brother. “I just talked to them and had lunch with my brother and my mom. After that I just had to get ready for the big day. It just seemed like time was flying by all day. I was very excited and very anxious and feel blessed to have been picked 32.” At Miami, Reed averaged 14.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.3 steals in 33 games as a senior for the Hurricanes. In addition, he

won the ACC’s Skip Prosser Award in 2017, presented annually to the conference’s top scholar-athlete in men’s basketball. On the day of the draft he returned to his roots and connected with his former coach, who is now the Head of the Lower School at Princeton Academy. “I think it speaks to the power of athletics and team and community that a place like PDS can provide,” McLean said. “How many years have passed since Kenny Holzhammer has played there and Davon has played there? It was great that we were all together with Davon. His family, friends, AAU coach, we were all there to see how the draft played out. We had thought maybe Indiana at No. 47 looked good because they had taken two big men earlier. But then Josh Hart went higher than projected. Josh went at 30 and Davon had worked out for the Suns twice, so we started to think maybe he’d go 32 to the Suns.” Reed joins a Suns team that went 24-58 last year, which was

the second worst record in the NBA. But the team added Josh Jackson of Kansas with the fourth pick, plus Reed and Alex Peters of Valparaiso in the second round. “There is no way to prepare for this,” Reed said. “I was just talking everything one day at a time since I started this process and it all boils down to this moment.” McLean looks at the situation in Phoenix and can see a perfect fit for Reed, who scored 2,102 points in his four-year career at PDS. “It is a great opportunity to step in and contribute,” McLean said. “They need some shooting and toughness on defense and Davon fills the role of 3 and D player. It’s great for Davon and we’re all proud of what he has done. We always said during our time at PDS, players, coaches, everyone is family. On draft night we were together and Jordan Page was there and so was Tavon Brittingham. It is so much about relationships and building them through the game, which we have done.”

Hawes makes it back for Sunshine Classic By Bob Nuse Sports Editor

Matt Hawes had his senior football season at Princeton High cut two weeks short by a knee injury. But Hawes will get a chance to suit up and represent the Little Tigers on the football field one last time when he participates in the 21st Annual Sunshine Classic, which was scheduled for Thursday night at The College of New Jersey. The games raises money for the Sunshine Foundation as well as scholarship money for the Delaware Valley Chapter of the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame. While some of the players in the game know they will be continuing their football careers at the college level, players like Hawes are unsure as he rehabs from knee surgery. And while he is unsure at the present time about continuing his football career in college, Hawes is happy to have an opportunity to suit up and represent

Princeton one last time. “My football season ended about two weeks early because of a fourth knee surgery,” said Hawes, who played defensive line and fullback for the Little Tigers. “I was happy to be selected. After my fourth knee surgery, with the physical therapy and post-op I wasn’t sure I’d be able to play. I was honored to be picked to play. “I have been training and working out and lifting to stay in shape to play. I had not played football in a while when I went to my first practice. I missed the first day because of our graduation and then when I went on Thursday it was a little rough. I was a little out of shape because I had not played in a long time. But it was fun getting back out on the field.” Hawes will be joined by two other Princeton High graduates in the game, Ethan Guerra and Alex Solopenkov. Princeton coach Charlie Gallagher is the offensive coordinator for the West team that the PHS players will be a part of in the game.

Hawes, who will attend Harvard University, is unsure if he will attempt to continue his football career. He’s working his way back from knee issues and the Sunshine game will be a good test to see just how far along he has come with his rehabilitation. “I have had a couple bumps and bruises, which is normal football stuff,” Hawes said on Monday after having gone through his second practice with his team. “It has been fun getting out there and catching the ball and running and hitting people. It is a good reminder of how much fun it was to play high school football.” A two-way player at Princeton, Hawes will play fullback for the West team in the Sunshine game. With Gallagher serving as the offensive coordinator, there will be a certain familiarity with the offense for Hawes when he lines up as a fullback. “It is nice because some of the plays overlap,” Hawes said. “I still have to learn things and we don’t get a lot of time to practice. There

are six total practices and they require you to make four. I missed one due to graduation and some of the other players miss here and there.” The Sunshine game offers an opportunity for players to bond with and become teammates with players they lined up across from during the regular season. For Hawes, the opportunity to play one more time representing Princeton High is one he will enjoy. In addition to football, he was a three-year performer for the lacrosse team before switching to track and field as a senior due to his knee issues. “It will be good to go out and play one more time,” Hawes said. “I played lacrosse freshman, sophomore and junior years but this year I couldn’t play. I switched to track and did shot, discus and javelin. It was a more control environment with no running or cutting. It was probably the best option for me since I wasn’t sure about my knee being ready so close to surgery.”

The Guest Who Won’t Leave

Bucks Playhouse gets big laughs with “The Nerd” By Anthony Stoeckert

From left: Grant Shaud, Zuzanna Szadkowski, Gavin Lee, Clea Alsip, Joe Kinosian and Kyle Cameron in “The Nerd” at Bucks County Playhouse.

oe Kinosian must be having an awful lot of fun playing the title character in “The Nerd” at the Bucks County Playhouse. He’s a blast right from the start, as he enters the proceedings in a crazy Halloween costume with a head resembling a fly’s. Soon he’s on the floor, asking a fellow party guest to help him take his pants off, insulting food he’s served, throwing deviled eggs all over the place, and annoying people he’s just met by leading them through a complicated game that involves everyone putting paper bags over their heads. And that’s just the start of the antics from the character Rick Steadman in Larry Shue’s “The Nerd,” running in New Hope, Pennsylvania, through July 15. This is a perfect comedy for the summer, filled with big laughs, a little bit of heart and a clever twist. Kinosian’s character may be the attention-grabber, but this entire cast is terrific, all the actors are very funny. Set in 1979, “The Nerd,” which was first produced in the early ’80s, centers around Willum Cubbert (played by Kyle Cameron), an architect who’s building a hotel for the wealthy businessman Warnock Waldgrave (Grant Shaud). Willum is stressed out because of the project — it’s his ticket out of designing run-of-the-mill housing communities — but Waldgrave is chipping away at his creativity. Willum is also dealing with his non-relationship with his friend Tansy (Clea Alsip). He’s interested, and she isn’t totally opposed to the idea but has plans to leave Terra Haute, Indiana for a job in Washington D.C. As the play opens Tansy and another friend, Axel (played by Gavin Lee), are in Willum’s apartment, planning his birthday party. Joining them are Warnock, his wife Clelia (Zuzanna Szadkowski) and their young son Thor (Avey Noble). This party doesn’t seem like a blast. Many of the play’s early laughs come from Lee as Axel: When Tansy says she isn’t ready to date Willum because she’s “fresh” out of a relationship, Axel notes that her relationship ended two years ago: “I’ll remember never to send you out for seafood.” Noble also gets big laughs early on as the bratty Thor, who storms into the party, toy light saber in hand, and locks himself in the bathroom. Willum asks if there’s anything he can do, “You get the mortar, I’ll get the bricks,” Axel jabs. Clelia, a ’70s new-age kind of parent, tells her husband to reason with their son, so he offers the kid $30 to get out of the bathroom but the kid demands $50. “You little bloodsucker, I’ll see you in hell first,” Warnock shouts, before telling the kid he’ll deal with him later, “You’re a big, fat disappointment to me, I hope you know that!” Shaud will be familiar to audiences for his role on the ’90s sitcom “Murphy Brown.” Recently he was on Broadway in “Relatively Speaking” and last year had a role in “Out in the City” at Passage Theatre in Trenton. He brings a helpless sort of bluster to the short-tempered, but always bargaining Waldgrave. Szadkowski was a regular on “Gossip Girl,” and Lee is a Tony-nominee whose Broadway credits include “Les Miserables” and “Mary Poppins.” Cameron has performed in New York and around the country, and Alsip will be familiar to audiences who saw her in “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” at Bucks a few years ago. She’s also set to appear in the upcoming Broadway production of “M. Butterfly.” The two women have a terrific scene together where Clelia asks if she can break some dishes as her son is locked in the bathroom. It’s a form of therapy that seems to do wonders, so Tansy gives a try in an attempt to stay civil while dealing with Rick. The party may be lame but it, and Willum’s life, are about to get worse. Rick saved Willum’s life in Vietnam. Willum was a draftsman, safest job in the army, but within 48 hours of arriving in Vietnam, found himself in a rice field in his dress uniform, shot, sitting in mud. He woke up in a hospital in Japan, and was told his life was saved by Rick Steadman. They never met, but they have written to each other, and Willum told Rick that as long as Willum is alive, Rick will always have someone on this planet who will do anything for him. Easier said than done. Rick arrives from Wisconsin. He works in a chalk factory, as an inspector, making sure there’s chalk in the boxes. Rick’s brother was “generous” enough to give Rick all of his money and credit cards so that he could go on a long trip. And Rick isn’t just here for the party, he invites himself to stay with Willum for a long time, sleeping on the couch, following him everywhere, and even deciding to join him in the architecture business. The Nerd has no training as an architect, but he added a chimney to a rendering of Willum’s and thinks he has a knack for it. Kinosian is returning to Bucks, having performed in the holiday version of “Murder For Two” (which he co-wrote) there last year. His performance is topnotch as virtually every move his character makes is annoying to the characters,

while still bringing humanity to the Nerd. Willum is the most sympathetic character, and in Cameron’s hands, you feel Willum’s pain. The production does a good job of capturing the play’s late-’70s setting without going overboard or making it jokey. The set by Maruit Evans consists of Willum’s apartment with denim-colored furniture. In a clever move, the walls look like blueprints. Costume designer Annie Simon has done a terrific job with the outfits, which include plaid pants, wide ties, a green polo-type shirt with stripes in the middle and a white color and, best of all, a powder-blue tuxedo worn by Axel. “The Nerd” continues at the Bucks County Playhouse, 70 S. Main St., New Hope, Pennsylvania, through July 15. For tickets and information, go to bcptheater.org or call 215-862-2121.

STAGE REVIEW By Anthony Stoeckert

There’s Magic to Do

Princeton Summer Theater’s ‘Pippin’ features a terrific cast who make the show funny and powerful

P

rinceton Summer Theater has opened its season with a lively, creative, and fun version of “Pippin.” It’s a production that emphasizes laughs, especially in the first act, while featuring fine acting, lovely singing, and some clever staging. “Pippin” started out as a student musical by Stephen Schwartz at Carnegie Mellon University. After Schwartz’s Broadway breakthrough with “Godspell,” he returned to “Pippin,” writing the music and lyrics, while Roger O. Herson wrote the book. (Schwartz claimed that no dialogue or music from his college version made it to the finished work.) The original 1972 Broadway production was directed by Bob Fosse and starred Ben Vereen as the Leading Player. Vereen won the Tony for Best Performer by a Leading Actor in a Musical and Fosse won for direction and choreography but the show itself lost Best Musical to Stephen Sondheim’s “A Little Night Music.” Recent revivals have had a lighter touch than the original staging, and it’s that lighter style that PST is presenting at Hamilton Murray Theater through July 9. The show’s meta premise is that a troupe of actors will share the story of Pippin, oldest son of Charlemagne, through story and song. Our host for the evening is The Leading Player (played by Alexandra Holden) who introduces herself and the other players through “Magic to Do.” On opening night, the cast was a bit clunky during this famous opening number, but things quickly got on track. We’re introduced to Pippin (Kyle Mangold) the oldest son of King Charles (Elliot Masters). Pippin has a half brother Lewis (Lawrence Karl), and Lewis’ mother, Fastrada (Renee Gagner) would love to see her son become king, and comes up with a wicked plan to make that happen. The plan doesn’t work, and it’s Pippin who take the throne. But he quickly learns that leadership isn’t for him, and goes on a journey of self discovery (how early ’70s of him). Mangold is a very good Pippin. He is earnest and optimistic to start and also lively and passionate. Mangold’s voice is strong, he sings clearly and with confidence and is particularly impressive when holding notes. Masters brings a different take to King Charles (at least different to me), and it’s a pleasure to watch him. Wearing a suit with a red tie, his Charles talks with a bravado that reminded me of a Hollywood golden-era studio boss promising a young actor that’s he gonna be a star. At other times, he reminded me of a Jackie Gleason, and Sterling Hayden in “Dr. Strangelove.” His Charles is quite funny with lines like when he talks about working with the Pope to spread Christianity, “even if it means killing every

During a vital scene between Pippin and Charles (which I won’t give away), Masters even brings some warmth to the part. Holden is less menacing as The Leading Player than in previous versions I’ve seen, but she’s very effective. Things eventually take a serious turn, and the Player’s evolution from friendly host to demanding manipulator is jarring as she expresses her disgust at Pippin for not fulfilling his destiny. Her frustration extends to the orchestra, and even the audience. Director Sam Weisberg has gotten fine work from this cast and sets an interesting mood throughout. A war scene is danced out to a catchy toe-tapping piano number. The actors fight in comic ways as Charles conducts (making sure he himself isn’t at risk). The staging of the battle may be comedic, but Pippin being scarred by it is totally believable, thanks to the acting and direction. The entire cast does fine work. Other standouts include

Karl as the heroic but dimwitted brother. Gagner is slyly charming as the stepmother, and Bridget McNiff does a lovely job as Pippin’s love interest, Catherine, her singing is most impressive during “There He Was” and “Kind of Women.” Dylan Blau Edelstein is sure to touch your heart as Theo, Catherine’s shy son. It all adds up to a terrific start to what looks like a promising summer at Hamilton Murray Theater. The rest of its season will feature Agatha Christie’s “Spider’s Web,” July 13-23; Arthur Miller’s “The Crucible,” July 27 through Aug. 6, and Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ “Appropriate,” Aug. 10-20. I’m looking forward to seeing what else this company has in store for us over the next two months.

Princeton Summer Theater is performing “Pippin” at the Hamilton Murray Theater on the campus of Princeton University through July 9. Performances: Thurs.-Sat. 8 p.m., Sun. 2 p.m. Tickets cost $29.50; www.princetonsummertheater.org; 732-997-0205.

ATLANTIC CITY By Mike Morsch

Music Has a Place in His Life Michael McDonald will play classic hits and newer songs during his gig at the Tropicana

M

ichael McDonald had this little riff that had been rolling around in his mind for a while. “It really hadn’t gone anywhere, but I knew there was something to it,” McDonald says. “I just never had the wherewithal to finish the song.” One day while talking on the phone with Tiran Porter, his Doobie Brothers bandmate, Porter mentioned that he had run into Kenny Loggins and Loggins had said that he wanted to write a song with McDonald. Loggins asked Porter to give his number to McDonald. It was 1978 and Loggins was just coming off a successful run in the 1970s with Jim Messina as Loggins and Messina. After a string of hits, the duo had split in 1977 and Loggins was pursuing a solo career. McDonald, who had joined the Doobie Brothers in 1975 after a few years as a member of Steely Dan’s touring band and recording team, liked the idea of writing a song with Loggins. So the two connected and made a date to meet at McDonald’s house. When McDonald’s sister found out about the meeting, she sprang into action. “I had never met the guy and I was kind of nervous,” McDonald says. “My sister decided to come over and clean up my house because it was usually pretty trashed. She decided that she was going to meet Kenny Loggins and that I should at least not have my dirty laundry in a pile in the living room.” On the day of the meeting, as his sister went about doing the laundry and cleaning out the ashtrays, McDonald sat down at the piano and started thinking about what he wanted to play for Loggins. “I had played that little riff for Ted Templeman [Doobie Brothers producer] a few times and every time I played it, he’d say, ‘You’ve got to finish that song. It’s a hit, I’m telling you,’” McDonald says. “I would just laugh and say, ‘If I come up with anything, I’ll let you know.’” So McDonald decided to play the riff for his sister that day.

Michael McDonald remains driven to make music, and will bring four decades’ of hits to the Tropicana Showroom, July 8. “I said to her, ‘I’m thinking of playing this for Kenny. What do you think?’” McDonald says. But just as McDonald was in the middle of playing the riff, the doorbell rang. It was Loggins. “Before I could say anything, he goes, ‘You were just playing something on the piano, is that new?’ And I said, ‘Well, yeah, I was thinking about playing it for you.’ And he said, ‘That’s the one I want to work on,’” McDonald says. For the next two days the duo came up with the bridge and chorus and the rest of the words for the song. And it turned out that Ted Templeman was right. The song was “What A Fool Believes,” and when it was released in January 1979 as the first single from the band’s “Minute by Minute” album, it became the second No. 1 hit for the Doobie Brothers. It also

earned McDonald and Loggins two Grammy Awards: for Song of the Year and Record of the Year in 1980. “It was just one of those moments that was meant to be,” says McDonald, who went on to write several more songs with Loggins, a songwriting partnership that continues to this day. The Doobie Brothers would initially break up in 1982 and McDonald would go on to develop a successful solo career in the 1980s. In 1982, he released his first solo album, “If That’s What It Takes,” which featured the hit single “I Keep Forgettin’ (Every time You’re Near)” and “I Gotta Try,” a song he co-wrote with Loggins. All of that music history will be on display when McDonald performs at the Tropicana Showroom in Atlantic City, July 8, sharing the bill with Boz Scaggs. McDonald is in the middle of a tour to

promote his new album “Wide Open,” which will be released in September. It’s his ninth solo album and first full-length release since 2008. “What I’m finding at this age is that I still have a great need to make records,” McDonald says. “But I’m not sure I’m any more sure today why, what the real drive is, anymore than I did when I was in my 20s.” McDonald said that he thought he wanted to be in a rock band playing arenas and living the life, which he accomplished. But he learned that really wasn’t what “it” was all about and he had to discover what really inspired the musical drive within him. “I found out that I was trying to ring that same bell that I rung so easily as a kid when I was 14 in the back of a van with no air conditioning, sweating my ass off going to a gig where I was gonna sweat some more,” he says. “It wasn’t very glamorous, but there was nothing more thrilling than getting up there and just making music with my buddies. That’s as good as it was ever gonna get for me. And that’s enough to make me still want to go into the studio today at age 65 and make a record.” To this point, McDonald is pleased with the way the tour is progressing and the reaction he’s getting from fans on the new material. “We’ll pull in older stuff and obscure stuff and change it out from show to show, but having new stuff to play is a whole other dynamic for us that I have to say, we’ve enjoyed,” McDonald says. “It’s a lot of fun and a little daunting at the same time because you just don’t know how people are going to react. So far, so good, though. We’re having a real good time with it and people seem genuinely enthusiastic about it.” Michael McDonald will perform at the Tropicana Showroom in Atlantic City, July 8, 8 p.m. For tickets and information, go to tropicana.net.

STAGE REVIEW By Anthony Stoeckert

‘Measure for Measure’ at Kelsey

W

hen it comes to popularity, “Measure for Measure” falls someone in the middle of the Shakespeare canon. It’s no “Hamlet” or “Romeo and Juliet,” but it’s certainly better-known than “King John” or “Cymbeline.” That’s somewhat surprising because while it has a reputation for being difficult to stage, the play’s themes involving power, corruption, love and family obligations remain relevant. Shakespeare ’70 has done an impressive job with its current version of this so-called “problem play,” on stage at Kelsey Theatre in West Windsor through July 2. What makes this production stand out is the acting, which is exceptional for a community group. Lines are said clearly and conversationally — these actors are acting, capturing the characters’ emotions and conflicts, while not getting caught up in the po-

etry of Shakespeare’s language. We’re in Vienna, where the good Duke Vincentio (John Bergeron) is disappointed in his city. Morals have all but vanished, so he announces he’s going on a diplomatic mission, leaving the city to the charge of Angelo (Ray Fallon). In truth, the Duke stays in Vienna, disguised as a monk in order to observe his people without them knowing who he is. Angelo is as strict as they come and lays down the law, including sentencing to death Claudio (played by John Fischer the first weekend; Michael Krahel will take on the part this weekend) for impregnating Juliet (Kelly Colleran) before they are married. Claudio’s sister, Isabella (Morgan Petronis) is training to become a nun. She goes to Angelo in an attempt to save her brother’s life. Claudio is taken by Isabella and makes a deal with her, if she sleeps him, he’ll free Claudio.

Lighting Up the Sky Celebrate America’s independence with fireworks, music and history By Anthony Stoeckert Features Editor Fourth of July is all about celebrating America at a barbecue, a day at the beach, a ballgame, and, of course, with some fireworks. The skies will be bursting with colors heading toward the holiday as various towns in the area host their annual fireworks shows. Many of these salutes to America include live music and activities for kids. And if you or someone in your family doesn’t like fireworks, there are other ways to get in the spirit and celebrate the nation’s history. The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra will perform a free concert at the Mercer County Park Festival Grounds, followed by fireworks, July 1, beginning at 8 p.m. The concert, titled “Road Trip Across the USA” will feature a medley of Bruce Springsteen hits as well as music from John Williams’ score to “Lincoln,” Copland’s “Rodeo” and a touch of Disney with music from “Beauty and the Beast.” The concert will be followed by a fireworks show. There also will be food for sale. For more information, go to mercercountyparks.org. East Windsor’s Independence Day celebration will take place at Etra Lake Park, July 1. Bring blankets and chairs, and hot dogs and burgers for the grill. Entertainment will begin at 6 p.m. with Jerry Rife’s Rhythm Kings Dixieland Jazz Band. They will be followed at 7:30 p.m. by the Trenton Brass Quintet Plus One, a six-piece ensemble performing Americana and a variety of popular melodies. The fireworks display will begin immediately following the musical presentations, at approximately 9:30 p.m. There also will be vendors selling refreshments. The rain date for the event is July 8. Hillsborough Township’s Independence Day celebration and fireworks is set for July 1 at Auten Road Intermediate School, 281 Auten Road, Hillsborough.

Pam Hersh

Chris Lokhammer and her ‘children’ The last time I saw Chris Lokhammer, she was in her element — at a grant-award meeting of a philanthropic organization. Some of the meeting participants were chatting about having “issues” with their kids. Lokhammer commented that she had no children but “had lots of children” and was banking on their future successes in life. We had to get on with the meeting, and I never clarified the puzzling statement. The puzzle was solved on a very sad occasion, when I read her obituary. Lokhammer, a much beloved Princeton banking executive and philanthropist/donor of both time and dollars to community causes, died on June 10. I realized that perhaps her “children” statement referred to young girls — and their mothers — whose lives have been transformed for the better by the Princeton Area Community Foundation Fund for Women and Girls. The obituary stated that Lokhammer requested contributions be made to one of two charitable funds established in her name at the Princeton Area Community Foundation, 15 Princess Road, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648. They are “The Chris Lokhammer Fund for the Benefit of the Fund for Women and Girls” and “The Chris Lokhammer Internship Fund for the Stony Brook Millstone Watershed.” In characteristic Chris getting-it-done-andleaving-no-room-for-ambiguity style, the donor instructions were not only in the obit, but also in the memorial service program and in separate note cards distributed to all of her friends and colleagues at the service. I never could match the words of love and praise for Lokhammer, who was described as wonderful, generous, loving, selfless, smart, strong, caring, and other adjectives of praise. So I wanted to honor her by using my words to highlight The Fund for Women and Girls, defined as a community of philanthropists working together to improve the lives of women and girls in central New Jersey. Lokhammer adopted the FWG when it was a toddler, two years after her husband of 35 years died. FWG’s offspring will speak to her character for-

Chris Lokhammer was a banker and philanthropist who dedicated her life to helping others, especially young mothers in need. ever. According to Princeton Area Community Foundation’s vice president for development Elizabeth Wagner, Chris Lokhammer first joined the Fund for Women and Girls in 2003, five years after the fund was initiated. “That’s the year she also joined the Community Foundation’s board,” Wagner said. “She began her enthusiastic support of FWG immediately and never stopped. The Chris Lokhammer Fund will make an annual contribution to the FWG’s grantmaking, so it will always support the creation of

critical opportunities for our region’s women and girls. Chris chose not to tell us what [organizations] should be supported, intending instead to trust the wisdom of the women who make FWG strong.” That statement reflects Chris’ entire mode of supervising, mentoring, and advising. She trusted and respected the wisdom and talents of others, while simultaneously teaching and inspiring others with her wisdom and talents. Carolyn Sanderson, an executive director and financial adviser with Morgan Stanley, is a Community Foundation board member and now chair of the Fund for Women and Girls. When Sanderson talked to me about the vision and mission of FWG, I could picture Lokhammer nodding her head with her characteristically joyful smile. That mission is “to improve the lives of economically vulnerable women and girls in greater Mercer County through community investment, education and collaboration.” Right about the time Lokhammer joined the FWG initiative, the Fund began making grants or investments — to date totaling more than $690,000 to Mercer County organizations that are committed to meeting the needs of girls and women. FWG just concluded a record-breaking, grant-making year in which it raised $132,500. “From a professional standpoint as a woman in finance, I am personally committed to ensuring that women feel empowered to make sound financial decisions for themselves and their families,” Sanderson said. “Many don’t feel capable of doing so.” Many then find themselves in vulnerable situations. The FWG grant-recipient organizations are working in the areas of domestic violence, mentoring, sex education (to prevent teen pregnancy and school drop out), and childcare. The hundreds of women and girls benefiting from FWG grants probably would want to thank Lokhammer and other dedicated FWG members who have given time and money to the fund over the course of two decades. I can picture Chris shrugging off the thanks in a gesture of ‘no big deal,’ offering a hug, and saying “Go Girl!”

Immunotherapy to fight cancer

More than 1.6 million new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed in the United States in 2017, according to the American Cancer Society. And though nearly 600,000 people will die from the disease this year, the number of people living beyond a cancer diagnosis continues to rise. In fact, since the early 1990s, the death rate from cancer has decreased by 25 percent. This decrease reflects the progress made in prevention and early diagnosis as well as advances in new treatment approaches, including immunotherapy, a rapidly advancing form of treatment that in simplest terms manipulates the immune system to fight cancer. At Edward & Marie Matthews Cancer Center at University Medical Center of Princeton, patients have access to cutting-edge services, including certain types of immunotherapy, for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Cancer basics Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by the uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. As cancer cells keep growing, they crowd out healthy cells and interrupt your body’s normal function. There are more than 100 types of cancer, and they are normally named by the places in your body where they first form. Among the most common types of cancer are: lung, breast, prostate, colorectal, melanoma, bladder, and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

Cancer is the secondleading cause of death in the United States, exceeded only by heart disease, claiming the lives of nearly 1 in 4 people each year, according to the American Cancer Society. Your immune system The overall function of your immune system is to prevent or limit infection by identifying and attacking foreign substances like germs and cancer cells. However, cancer cells are tricky. Your immune system does not always recognize them as foreign; if it does, it might not be strong enough to destroy them. Additionally, cancer cells themselves give off substances to keep immune cells at bay and prevent the immune system from doing its job. In recent years, researchers have found ways to manipulate the immune system to better detect and destroy abnormal cells and fight cancer, giving rise to immunotherapy. Your immune system versus cancer While traditional chemotherapy and radiation work by killing cancer cells, immunotherapy works differently. Instead of going after cancer cells directly, immunotherapy uses the immune system to fight the disease. This approach can be more specific and precise and may be more easily tolerated, especially for patients who have other health complications. In general, immunotherapy drugs either stimulate the activities of specific components of the immune

system to attack cancer cells or counteract signals produced by cancer cells that suppress immune responses. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are an example of one of one immunotherapy approach. Immune checkpoint proteins are regularly produced by your immune system to prevent an overly intense response that might damage normal cells. Cancer cells, however, have found a way to use these proteins to prevent the immune system from attacking them. Immune checkpoint inhibitors block the function of these proteins, essentially releasing the brakes on the immune system, increasing its ability to destroy cancer cells. Immune checkpoint inhibitors are part of a broader class of immunotherapy drugs called monoclonal antibodies. Some other types of monoclonal antibodies work by attaching themselves to cancer cells and acting as a marker for the body’s immune system to attack them. Still others work by attaching to and blocking antigens on cancer cells (or other nearby cells) that help cancer cells grow or spread.

Is immunotherapy right for you? Though surgery, chemotherapy and radiation remain the standard in cancer treatment, immunotherapy therapy drugs are increasingly being used as part of treatment or on their own to fight the disease. If you have been diagnosed with cancer, talk to your doctor about your treatment options and the benefits and risks of each to determine if immunotherapy may be right for you.
