Council offers more time to comment on redevelopment By Lea Kahn Staff Writer

Hopewell Borough residents will have an additional chance to comment on a redevelopment plan for the J.C. Van Doren and Sons lumber yard property at the Borough Council’s Sept. 6 meeting. On Aug. 2, council members opened the public hearing on an ordinance that would, if adopted, create a Townhouse Residential zone on the 1-acre property at 24 Model Avenue.

Council members were ready to take final action on the ordinance, which was introduced in July, but opted to continue the public hearing to Sept. 6 after listening to two Model Avenue residents who questioned the redevelopment plan. The lumber yard property is zoned Residental/Office (RO), which permits single-family homes, and professional and business offices. The lumber yard is a permitted use. The redevelopment plan, which has been in the works

since 2015, would create a new zone on the property that would allow the construction of up to 13 townhouses on that lot. Two of the units would be set aside for low- and moderate-income households. Council members were quick to stress that a redevelopment plan is a planning tool, and that no one has filed an application with the Planning Board to redevelop the lumber yard property. Councilman David Mackie, who also sits on the Planning Board, outlined the multi-step re-

development process for the two Model Avenue residents - neither of whom was aware of the redevelopment plan and its details. Mackie said the state Local Redevelopment and Housing Law allows municipal officials to look at properties that are underused or that are “out of sync” with the community’s goals, and to rezone them. “(The redevelopment act) is a framework for adaptive re-use of a property,” Mackie said. Adaptive re-use means finding new uses for an old building

or property. The redevelopment law allows for changes in zoning, but it is a lengthy process that involves the approval of the governing body and the Planning Board, he said. “If a property owner came to us, we would work with them to come up with a redevelopment plan - a change in zoning to allow another use on the property,” Mackie said. A redevelopment plan “does not pertain to a specific site plan.


Democrats to appoint county freeholder By Philip Sean Curran Staff Writer

The soon-to-be vacant seat of Mercer County Freeholder Anthony S. Verrelli is being eyed by Democrats from around Mercer County, now that Verrelli is becoming a state assemblyman. Talk within party circles is rampant about who wants to climb the political ladder in a county where Democrats control all the levers of power. Ethnic, gender and even geographic factors could come into play in determining who gets selected. There has been speculation Democrats might push to have a Latino freeholder or for Trenton to have a second representative on the board, with Freeholder Samuel T. Frisby Sr. the only member so far from the capital city. One Democrat said this week there is a large pool of Democrats who would be interested in running for the seat, which Verrelli had not resigned from as of Aug. 2. “I think it’s going to be a wide open race,” Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes said on Aug. 1. “We are going to see a lot of people come out looking to fill the seat.” Hughes said he thought as many as 10 to 20 people want to run, with about 10 of those individuals considered “viable” candidates. “There’s an expectation there will be a lot of people calling around to gauge support,” Freeholder Andrew Koontz said on Aug. 1. Ewing Councilwoman Jennifer Keyes-Maloney and Pennington Mayor Anthony Persichilli are among those saying they are considering seeking the seat. Both said they would make up their minds sooner rather than

later. “I’m just having the conversations with my family as well as, in the coming days, the different town leaders,” Keyes-Maloney said on Aug. 1. If Keyes-Maloney were to be the candidate, she would seek to join a seven-member board with two women and five men. “I want to see who else is interested,” Persichilli said on Aug. 1. “There’s some decent people out there.” Other Democrats whose names had been floated as possible candidates, like West Windsor Councilwoman Ayesha Hamilton, said they would not be running. “I’m not going to be involved in this race,” Hamilton said on Aug. 1. While Hamilton is not interested in the freeholder position, someone else from West Windsor said he is. Kamal Khanna, a former West Windsor councilman who spent four-and-a-half years on the governing body of that town, said on Aug. 1 that he is a candidate for the freeholder seat. “I have been a councilman before and I think this is a natural next step that I’d like to get into,” Khanna said. Khanna said he has been active in Democratic politics, both at the local and county levels, and sits on the Mercer County Improvement Authority. He said that in addition to being the first Indian-American freeholder, he would be the first member of county government from West Windsor, a community he said has been “neglected” by the “county people.” Roberto Hernandez, a Hamilton Township resident who is the president of the Mercer County Latino Democratic Caucus, said See FREEHOLDER, Page 3A

It has already been established that breastfeeding confers many health benefits both to mother and child. Among the advantages that breastfeeding has over bottlefeeding is that breast-fed children have been found to have better teeth and jaw alignment by the age of five years. That is the conclusion of a 2015 Australian study involving over 1,300 children, which found that babies who were exclusively breastfed had a 72% lower risk of developing jaw and tooth problems. This finding is understandable in light of the fact that breastfeeding requires babies to co-ordinate their orofacial muscles to form a vacuum to allow milk to be released. Overall, breastfeeding is an excellent orofacial muscle workout that helps develop good bony jaw structures. Some orthodontic conditions are easier to correct if they’re detected early. Interceptive orthodontic treatment helps prevent more severe problems later on. It gives an orthodontist control over where the permanent teeth come in by addressing the structure of the jaw and teeth while baby teeth are still in the mouth. To schedule a consultation, please call the office of MARK W. McDONOUGH, DMD, LLC, at 609-730-1414. Our office is conveniently located at 245 South Main Street (next to Toll Gate Grammar School), Pennington.

Even more incredibly, when their story ran in the New York Post, another 19 year-old, David Kellman, realized he was their triplet, adopted to yet another family. But the brothers’ discovery set in motion a chain of events that, decades later, unearthed an extraordinary and disturbing secret.

Hopewell Valley News 3A

Teenager brightens up Borough Hall with Eagle Scout project By Lea Kahn Staff Writer

If Borough Hall in Hopewell Borough looks a little more inviting these days, it’s because of the colorful flower boxes at the front and rear entrances to the municipal building on East Broad Street. The flower boxes were installed earlier this month by Liam Mooney as part of his Boy Scouts of America Eagle Scout project. Liam, 17, who graduated from Hopewell Valley Central High School in June, belongs to Boy Scout Troop 44 in Pennington. To reach the top rank of Eagle Scout, which has been achieved by 2 per-

cent of eligible Boy Scouts since the rank’s inception in 1912, a Scout must come up with a project and carry it through to completion. And that’s what Liam has done. A large part of an Eagle Scout’s project is demonstrating leadership for younger Boy Scouts, Liam said. He directed the younger boys in planting the flowers and watering them. The idea for the flowers and flower boxes grew out of Liam’s love of gardening. “At home, I fill flower pots with plants. It’s fun. I like getting outside and getting my hands dirty and being in the sun,” he said.

Freeholder Continued from Page 1A on Aug. 1 that he is considering running. He said he hopes to make up his mind by the middle of next week. “I am thinking about it, but I want to take this to the community first,” he said. “I want to make sure I have their support, which is the most important thing.” The man Democrats are looking to replace on the county’s governing body is still a freeholder. Verrelli was recently chosen by his fellow Democrats to fill the vacant state Assembly seat formerly held by Trenton Mayor Reed Gusciora. Verrelli defeated three other candidates at a convention of Democrat county committee members from the 10 towns in Mercer and Hunterdon counties that make up the state’s 15th Legislative District. It was not immedi-

ately known when Verrelli will join the Legislature or when he will resign his freeholder seat. He could not be reached for comment. Democrats want Verrelli’s resignation timed to avoid having his replacement have to stand for a special election in November. “One of the things we want to do is coordinate so we don’t have to have yet another election,” Hughes said. Verrelli, elected in 2016, is in the second year of his three-year term as a freeholder. In November, three freeholder seats will be on the ballot. If a fourth seat is on the ballot, control of the seven-member board would be at stake. Democrats hold all seven seats on the county’s governing body.

Meanwhile, Liam noticed Borough Hall was a fairly new building, but it was lacking in decoration. “I thought I could liven up the area and make Borough Hall more appealing. I love the look of flowers. The flowers make you want to come back,” he said. Liam, who comes from an artistic and creative family - his father owns the Brothers Moon restaurant and his mother owns

Borough - said there is an artistic element to flowers. “You buy small plants and then you see what plants you want to put together with other plants. Aesthetics is huge in my family. This is my creative outlet. Plants work for me,” Liam said. While the younger Boy Scouts were integral to the Eagle Scout project, Liam credited family friend Kurt Schulte with providing

boxes. It took about three days to build the flower boxes, which were then installed at Borough Hall and filled with annual flowers. In a nod to Schulte’s help, Liam said, “this project would not have been possible without Kurt.”

Redevelopment Continued from Page 1A Beth Ann Designs studio/ gallery, both in Hopewell They would still have to go through the Planning Board (and file a formal application),” Mackie said, explaining there would be opportunities for public comment on a proposed development at the Planning Board. Council members also would have to approve a redevelopment agreement with the redeveloper, Mackie said. The agreement lays out a detailed site plan for the property that may include architectural, lighting and landscaping details. The key part of the redevelopment plan is to change the use for the owner of the lumber yard property to build townhouse units, including some units set aside for affordable housing, Mackie said. The property owner has outlined a conceptual site plan, but a formal application has not been prepared or submitted to the Planning Board, he said. “All we are doing is cre-

To the editor: In the latest display of their ability to deceive the public, which has characterized the Hopewell Township administration of Mayor Kevin Kuchinski and Deputy Mayor Julie Blake, an ordinance was introduced at the township committee meeting on June 25 that contained claims that were simply not true. The ordinance, which proposed to give a property tax break to the developer of the Zaitz Tract behind ShopRite, set forth at its introduction on June 25, 2018: • “WHEREAS, Lennar established U.S.Home at Hopewell Urban Renewal (Entity);” • “WHEREAS, the Entity submitted to the Mayor an application;” • That the application “is on file with the Township Clerk;” • “WHEREAS, the Mayor submitted the application… to the Township Committee;” None of the above statements were true at introduction on June 25, 2018. Lennar did not establish U.S. Home at Hopewell Urban Renewal (Entity) until July 13, 2018. The application was not submitted until July 26, 2018 and was not on file with the township clerk until July 27, 2018. How do you know that the Kuchinski-Blake administration set out to deceive the public and were not just merely incompetent? Because, at the public section of the township committee meeting on June 25, 2018, I specifically asked if they actually had received the application and was refused an answer to that simple yes-or-no question. Clearly, they knew that they did not have the application at ordinance introduction on June 25, 2018. Then, they added their arrogance to their deception.

Agreement with developer will bring millions to township To the editor:

The financial agreement the Hopewell Township Committee entered into with the developer of the Zaitz tract at the HTC’s July 30 meeting is expected to net beyond $90 million more into township coffers than had the agreement not been approved. Said township attorney Kevin McManimon at the meeting: “Those numbers, over the 30-year term that they’re asking for here, translate into approximately $112 million over the life of the 30-year exemption to the township.” And if the property had been taxed as usual? “In the event that this exemption is not granted,” McManimon said prior to the vote, “the amount that the township would realize, its share of conventional taxes over the 30 years, would be approximately $18.5 million.” That’s a difference of about $93.5 million. But, you didn’t read that in the opinion letter written here last week that complained of a “giveaway.”

The foregoing ordinance was finally adopted at a meeting of the Pennington Borough Council on August 6, 2018. The ordinance is posted on the bulletin board in Borough Hall and on the Borough web-site. Copies are available to the public in the office of the Borough Clerk.

Democrats, committee members Kristen McGlaughlin and Michael Ruger, refused to delay the final ordinance reading and vote on Monday July 30, 2018 to allow the public the time to become familiar with the 131 page application before the vote, despite the pleas of Republican John Hart. That this committee treats the public with such scorn is mind-boggling.

William Everett Schluter William Everett Schluter died on August 6 in his home on Main Street in Pennington, NJ after a two year battle with pancreatic cancer. Bill was born in Bronxville, NY in 1927 and was raised in Princeton, NJ. He grew up on a working farm, Active Acres, which later became the site for Educational Testing Service. He attended Princeton Country Day School and Phillips Exeter Academy, and graduated from Princeton University in 1950 with honors, where he majored in Economics and played varsity hockey for four years. Bill began his career working for Thermoid Incorporated in Trenton, NJ, and then moved to Sylvania Corporation in Buffalo, NY. After several years he returned to NJ, and with his brother Fred, founded NJ Forge, a manufacturing company in Plainfield. He and his wife Nancy settled in Pennington to raise a family. At this time, he became involved in local politics and served two terms as a member of the Pennington Borough Council. In 1964, Bill attended the Republican National Convention in San Francisco as a NJ delegate. It was at this point that he decided to devote his life to public service. Bill served as a Republican state senator and assemblyman in the NJ legislature from 1968 to 1974 and from 1987 to 2002. As a crusader for ethics and government reform, he chaired the Joint Legislative Committee on Ethical Standards and sponsored laws to regulate lobbying and disclosure of campaign contributions and expenditures. Bill also served on committees overseeing environmental quality and land use. In 2001, he ran unsuccessfully as an independent for governor. Despite the long odds, Bill was described in one editorial as “a beacon of integrity in a capital often befogged by special interests and politics as usual.” Another opined “He’s a rare phenomenon: A veteran lawmaker and a straight arrow. For decades, he’s fought the good fight for honesty in government--often standing alone.” Reflecting his deep interest in public policy and reform, Bill wrote numerous editorials and articles, including an Op-Ed in 1999 in the NY Times in opposition to gambling in NJ, “A Horse Race in Your House.” In 2017, he published “Soft Corruption: How Unethical Conduct Undermines Good Government and What To Do About It.” In reading this book one is reminded of a quote by the 18th century Irish philosopher Edmund Burke, “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” Throughout his career, Bill remained active in the community. He served on the boards of the NJ Historical Commission, the Stony Brook-Millstone Watershed Association (now the Watershed Institute), and the Center for Analysis of Public Issues, and he was active in the Presbyterian Church of Pennington. His passion for hockey continued as a founding member of the Princeton Hockey Club (over 40 years as an adult player) and coach of the “Black Hawks” in Pee Wee Hockey (over 20 years), now the Princeton Youth Hockey Association. Bill was proudest of his family and their many accomplishments. He leaves behind his wife of 68 years, Nancy Hurd Schluter, and six children: William E. Schluter, Jr. (Nancy) of Wilmington, DE, Nancy Schluter Thurston (Steve) of Manakin-Sabot, VA, Sally Schluter Tardella (Joseph) of Bloomfield Township, MI, Peter L. Schluter (Leslie) of Pennington, Stephen A. Schluter (Cindy) of Summit, NJ, and Philip H. Schluter (Julie) of Summit, NJ, 19 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren. A funeral service will be held at the First Presbyterian Church of Pennington, 13 S. Main St. on August 11 at 12 noon, with Rev. David Hallgren officiating. Memorial contributions may be made in Bill’s name to the Watershed Institute in Pennington Arrangements are being made by the Blackwell Memorial Home of Pennington.

or memorial service, your options are nearly unlimited.

NJ native has film premiere at the Indie Street Film Festival T he movie “Weight,” which premiered at the Indie Street Film Festival in Red Bank on July 27, was written, directed and produced by Rob Margolies, a New Jersey native from Rumson. “Weight” is about an overweight Brooklyn, N.Y., man who struggles to lose weight when the girl of his dreams tells him she will give him a shot if he gets healthy. Inspired by his friend’s determination to lose weight, Margolies came up with the idea for this film. “I have a friend who is over 300 pounds and only 5-feet, 10 inches tall, and he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes,” he said. “His doctor told him he was going to die if he didn’t lose weight. In his depression state, he said he was making it his goal to lose 100 pounds in a year. I was like, ‘that’s a really good idea for a movie.’ I thought it would be really cool to track him lose the weight and it would be a really cool idea for a movie.” Margolies’ friend, who is an actor himself, had the script for “Weight” written for him to play the part, but after feeling it was too much pressure, Margolies had to revise the script. “I started writing it and I really liked what I was writing,” he said. “I finished it and it got really good feedback and I was able to find some funding for it and it gave me a lot of momentum to keep going.

Writer-director Rob Margolies’ “Weight,” which he also produced, debuted at the Indie Street Film Festival last month. Margolies is a Rumson native.

Then, one month before we started filming the movie, my friend came to me and told me he thought it was too much pressure for making the movie. That was a major roadblock, because I had to rewrite the script for a different actor, who wasn’t going to lose the weight.” Zackery Byrd, who plays the leading role of Ben, made his feature film debut See WEIGHT, Page 6B

O’Brien speaks about new film, ‘At The End Of The Day’ F

ilmmaker Kevin O’Brien took home two awards at the end of the New Hope Film Festival on Sunday, July 29, for his film, At The End of the Day. Holding his awards high, O’Brien was pleased to secure the LGBTQ Spirit Award as well as the Audience Choice for Best Narrative Feature Award. At The End of the Day, which was written, directed and produced by O’Brien, debuted at the New Hope Film Festival at the New Hope Arts Center in Pennsylvania on the night of July 26. The film is, “a dramatic comedy about a conservative Christian professor who experiences a profound change when he goes undercover and infiltrates a gay support group to thwart their plans to open a LGBTQ youth shelter in their small town.” O’Brien who has made a few shorts before, had never taken on the task of actually making a full feature-length film. “This was a constant, daily hustle and just the determination to learn,” O’Brien said. “I was researching and reading about the history of the LGBTQ community and faith, through conflict and how we got to the where we are and different beliefs and the understanding of scriptures. This was while I was learning how to even write a screen play and how to produce that and get finances and all of that. It was a constant obsession.” O’Brien, who shared the producer role with his wife, Teresa, owes a lot of the success the film had both on and off the screen. “The first two and a half years, it was her putting up with and supporting my obsession,” he said. “Once we got into filming and production, she was on set pretty much every day, she was producing with me. She was doing all of this at the same time as making sure our family still worked, making sure we all had

clean laundry and all of that, so she was a huge proponent of everything.” The film, which was set and filmed in the O’Brien’s small town of Lakeland, Florida, was being made when the shooting of the LGBTQ nightclub, The Pulse, occurred in Orlando. This was the deadliest incident of violence against the LGBTQ community in American history. “This is more of an issue there [Flor-

ida] than other parts of the country,” he said. “We were already working on the film when that had happened and being so close to that really hit close to home. It was a very unfortunate thing that really hit close to us.” Growing up in Florida, O’Brien was raised in a conservative, evangelical Christian household. He was always taught, ‘Love the sinner, hate the sin.’

“I grew up being taught, that was the loving approach,” he said. “There’s this truth, we have, this exclusive truth, the one truth to the world and the loving thing is to share that truth with some people. Growing up as a white, straight guy, I had all of the privileges. It wasn’t until my late twenties, early thirties, my eyes were starting to open to how damaging how much of this is to so many people. It was just something that made me feel like I had an obligation to do something, to bring some change.” When Kevin and his wife, Teresa started to extend their family through adoption, which they did on two separate occasions, their eyes started to open when they realized that what they were taught might not have always been the right mindset. “It was just about a lot of the stuff on how the way the world really works, a lot of misconceptions we had on people and groups and family’s histories,” he said. “So, we kept our curiosity and started asking what else don’t we know? What else are we wrong about? Ultimately, it was about the relationships that we built, and people who we were taught that we couldn’t have a relationship with as well as have a relationship with God. But

Museum in Trenton on the evening of July 24. “The New Jersey State Council on the Arts continues to build on its unwavering commitment to award grants to the arts community and support the partnerships we have seen here today,” said Secretary of State, Tahesha Way. “The arts challenge us to be creative and learn new skills, all of which help keep the mind astute and boost confidence. We congratulate and remain extremely grateful to today’s award winners for their contribution and dedication to preserving a vital resource in their communities that directly improves the quality of life for everyone.” Funding for the Arts Council is provided by the Hotel/Motel Occupancy fee legislation, which was passed in 2003. It established a steadfast revenue flow to support arts, history and tourism throughout the state. The Arts Council also receives annual grants from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA). Decisions to receive funding are made from an evident, merit-based and arduous process that assures access and equity. Grant applications are evaluated by independent peer panels to eradicate the chance for any conflicts of interests.

“Every year my colleagues and I marvel at what we discover about New Jersey’s arts industry, and I am very proud of the work we do,” said Council Chair Elizabeth Mattson. “In every corner of our state, you can find a thriving and tenacious creative community.” The Arts Council is coming off the previous year, where they had just as much success, where their grantees spent $275 million in New Jersey, employed around 25,000 workers and brought in around 7.5 million patrons who then spent around $232 million throughout the state. New Jersey artists and arts organizations produced a dollar of local economic activity for every three cents they received from the Arts Council. Forty-six of the organizations and projects that received the highest evaluations were recognized with Citations of Excellence.

people that we constantly met, were proving that wrong.” After watching a documentary about five or six families growing up throughout evangelical homes, O’Brien was inspired to create the film after seeing what had happened when one of the children come out as gay. “I knew that night, that was in April of 2014, I didn’t have the story, I just knew that that tension is where I wanted this movie to live.” Through O’Brien’s journey in making this film come to life, his belief system that was taught to him as a child began to shift into a separate motion. “I don’t know if it was the making of the movie or it was when I decided that this is what the movie was going to be about,” he said. “I know that I would not have put the time into the extensive research of the LGBTQ community if it hadn’t been for this film. My faith was shifting a lot before this and my understanding of what faith is and what scripture is was still shifting and mak-

ing this film certainly put that shift on the fast track. The movie specifically deals with a lot of evangelical church’s treatment and dealings with LGBTQ community, but it’s so much bigger than that. It’s about the way we treat everybody. It’s how we value other people’s stories and their lived experiences and the challenge of valuing that as much as our own.” O’Brien has one thing he wants viewers to get after watching his film. “Big picture, I want people to listen,” he said. “Especially people who are more privileged, white, straight guys- I want us to stop acting like we have the answers and ask some questions, then shut up and listen, then value that answer. Part of the problem, big picture, is that even if we ask questions, we set people up to ask questions to give our retort, instead of just asking and just listening.” At The End Of The Day, aired at the New Hope Film Festival in New Hope, Pa., and will soon be airing at other film festivals across the country.

at the Bow Tie Cinemas in Red Bank during the festival. Margolies, who is a New Jersey native, was pleased to have his new film premiere at a place he knew well. “This is awesome,” Margolies said. “It’s like my hometown. I grew up going to that cinema in Red Bank and it’s just awesome that one of my movies is now showing there. I grew up going there all the time to see indie films and Jason Mewes, who is one of the actors in the film, is from the Highlands and he has a store in Red Bank, so it’s extra special because of that, because it’s both of our hometown essentially.” Mewes, who is known as being a part of the team, “Jay and Silent Bob,” owns a comic book shop in Red Bank called Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. Mewes joined other well-known actors in the film, including Kathy Najimy, Randy Quaid and Peter Scolari. “I’ve been doing this for a long time and I have a lot of good relationships with different agents and managers, so that definitely helped,” he said. “I think a lot of the narrative in the script also helped, as well as it wasn’t just some first-time director. Obviously, they weren’t paid a lot, because the budget of the movie was well under $100,000, but they did it because it was a labor of love and it was fun for them.” Margolies is now working on several other projects and hopes to finish making four movies within the next six months. “I have four movies right now that I’m working on,” he said. “All of them are fully funded and we are basically just trying to lock in actors for them. I hope to make all four of them between now and the end of January. I’m just producing them.” Margolies is running a company on the side, Develop Your Movie (, where he assists serious writers who need help developing a script or finding the funding for a project, and helps them make their dream come alive. If you are passionate enough about your project, Margolies is there to help. “My company is always looking for new content and great writers,” he said. “I have five movies in postproduction other than ‘Weight’ right now. All five are from writers who came to me looking for someone to help them with story development or something. When I feel the script is right, I’m usually likely to get name actors to be in those movies. I’m really always about finding good writers who I believe in, who have a great story, and developing that with them.”

Lawrenceville- Tucked away on the far west of the Mercer Mall, directly behind, and next to, several typical American chain restaurants, lies the ultimate dining experience of the Far East. Liuyishou Hotpot has made its way to America with their first location. Think of it as the “boiling soup” version of Japanese Hibachi, except that you and your partners get to do all of the fun stuff ! Our server, Chris, sat us down and explained the menu and also the experience. First is the soup base- the “HotPot”. You and your party pick from 1, 2, or 3 soup bases in which to cook your food. The soup pot will cook on your special tabletop, turned on and controlled by your server. Upon his recommendation, we decided to try 2 flavors. We chose a signature spicy soup, and a non-spicy tomato soup base.

The cornerstone of the spicy soups (we had the mild and it was plenty hot) is the Szechuan pepper. The pepper has the ability to numb the mouth if you bit into it raw. It has powerful heat but also a distinct flavor. They put a small amount to enhance some of the other soups, but it is the liberal amount in the spicy soup bases that sets it apart. The table was turned on and the soup started to boil! For our appetizers, we ordered the House Special Shrimp Paste, and the Kung-Fu Potato Slices. The paste came out in a long bamboo tube that our server pushed out onto a plate. From there you form them into little meatballs, like you would Swedish meatballs, and boil. Both the potato slices, and the shrimp meatballs tasted great in any of the soups, and took about 5 minutes to cook. My partner tried a house specialty- the Clutinous Rice Cake. If you could stuff a funnel cake with rice, and added the aroma of a homemade French toast stick, you would have one of two results. (a. The clutinous Rice Cake, and b. Heaven.) Our entrees consisted of a plate of raw Angus Beef, sliced thin as well as a plate of thinly sliced chicken, ready to boil. Chris recommended a side of vegetable fried rice. And we were happy that he had because there must be an ingredient that we are not used to in the states. This was simply the best tasting fried rice that either of us had ever tasted. Before cooking our entrees, we went over to the make your own sauce bar, featuring everything from garlic, peanut, and sesame oils, to classic spices such as cilantro, chili powder to oyster sauce and bean curd. We made what Chris recommended which was the “Original” recipe. (I’ll let Liuyishou tell you the recipe though). The combination of the beef and the Szechuan pepper soup, then dipped into the sauce was a match made in heaven. It’s the perfect battle of great flavor and just enough spice. And the battle ends in a draw. The chicken cooked in under a minute. I was skeptical on the time suggestion, but it was spot on. We used the tomato soup, and it was very tender. Iced Jelly was the dessert of choice. This was a totally new experience. It has an interesting texture. If you can imagine something not a thick as jelly but not as thin as water, consisting of plum, hawthorn, peanut, sesame seed, and dried prunes. It’s cool and sweet and the perfect compliment to cool the mouth after this dining experience. If you would like to try something fun for a group of any size that sparks conversation, and opens up new a ton of new sensations to your pallet, Liuyishou Hotpot on Route 1 in Lawrenceville is the solution.

School brings hope with Parkinson’s dance program Princeton Ballet School (PBS) instructor, Rachel Stanislawczyk, describes aspects of her profession as being rooted in a “homemade” recipe with a particular connection to her grandfather. The ingredients include no sugar, but the finished product is sweet with a filling of hope. The product that Rachel references is Princeton Ballet School’s Dance for Parkinson’s Program, a new initiative taught and inspired by Rachel,who is a certified instructor of the Elemental Body Alignment System. “In Parkinson’s Disease, the brain neurons responsible for producing the neurotransmitter Dopamine, no longer work. However, dancing to live music is a homemade recipe for producing dopamine in the brain. I saw this happen with my own grandfather,” said the 22-year-old Rachel who just graduated magna cum laude with her BFA in dance and choreography from Virginia Commonwealth University. Two years ago right before she was about to return to school after summer break, she wanted to visit her grandfather “just one more time,” because he was suffering intensely from Parkinson’s disease, “and I was unsure as to how much longer he had to live. He had stopped speaking and was unable to hold up his head. I wheeled him into the living room, turned on classical music and started to move his limbs to the music with a technique I had learned in one of my classes. I worked from his ankles up to his neck and by the time I finished, he was holding up his head and actually speaking. My grandmother walked into the room and was astounded. Her jaw actually hung open. I could not save his life, but I was able to give him a

It was that experience that really sparked my interest in the power of dance for people with Parkinson’s disease.” Rachel obtained an internshipwith the Brooklyn-based Mark Morris Dance

Group that was responsible for starting in 2001 the nation’s first dance program for Parkinson’s, called Dance for PD. After her six months internship, the dance group hired her for a variety of administrative and training jobs and now she is a lead teacher

in the Dance for PD program. With a special fondness for the American Repertory Ballet’s Princeton Ballet School where her passion for dance was fueled, Rachel, decided PBS ought to produce a Parkinson’s dance program. Several weeks ago Rachel, who started taking dance classes at PBS in 2003, made a Parkinson’s dance program proposal to the board and was honored and humbled when the board accepted her proposals. The classes are going on until the end of August and depending upon the response from the public, the classes may become a permanent part of the PBS class repertory. “American Repertory Ballet’s Dance for Parkinson’s program creates a warm sanctuary for movement exploration and a social atmosphere to support artistic venture. The classes  will have live musical accompaniment by one of ARB’s staff of professional musicians,” she said. “This inclusive program is open to all levels of ability, and although participants may experience therapeutic relief, this  class  is not considered therapy. It is solely a place where people come together to move, share and enjoy the elements of dance.” Rachel’s dance goals have come a long way from her childhood dance dreams of landing roles in the ARB’s spectacular Nutcracker production. “I have always been interested in the reason why we dance? To me, this reason is much larger than to put on a performance. There is a distinct therapeutic sensation I feel while moving to music, a quiet exchange of listening and responding. This is the exact magic that happens in a Dance for Parkinson’s class,” said Rachel, who never

Jerry O’Connell pokes fun at WGN America’s “Carter” By Kellie Freeze

You don’t need an appointment for our fast, courteous service. Come by and visit, before it’s time to take that ride.


Expires 8/24/18


erry O’Connell stars in WGN America’s lighthearted crime procedural Carter (airing Tuesday nights) as Harley Carter, a Hollywood star who retreats to his small Canadian hometown after a very public — and very humiliating — red carpet meltdown. Once there, Harley decides that his fictitious sleuthing skills qualify him to be a real-life detective, much to the amazed chagrin of his two childhood best friends: no-nonsense veteran police officer Sam Shaw (Chicago P.D.‘s Sydney Poitier Heartsong) and the dry-witted owner of a local coffee truck, Dave Leigh (Orphan Black standout Kristian Bruun). “This is about a guy who plays a cop on TV, who then helps the cops out using the skills he learned while working on TV cop dramas. It’s pretty inside the show,” O’Connell says. “It was almost like doing Waiting for Guffman for crime procedurals.” The residents of the sleepy town of Bishop have a hard time separating Harley from his wildly popular TV persona — a suave detective also named Harley Carter — and bombard him with requests to help investigate local crimes. “He left the town of Bishop for all the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, but he really intended on coming home,” says O’Connell. Harley sees his foray into crime-solving as an opportunity to help his friends and neigh-

bors, and solve the 25-year-old mystery of his mother’s disappearance. “It’s sort of our season-long storyline,” explains O’Connell. “And it really pays off.” O’Connell believes that the breezy police procedural is a nod to Law & Order-like crime dramas. “I don’t wanna say we make fun of the crime procedural genre,” says the actor, “but the show winks at the genre. And anyone who is a fan of crime shows — like I am — is really gonna enjoy it.” The actor also reveals that Carter is action-packed, and he loves finding himself in the middle of the flurry. “I’m getting up there in years, but I’m still pretty nimble. I can handle it,” O’Connell laughs. “I can’t believe I’m saying this. I’m not like Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible 8, but I do a lot of my own stunts.” In addition to starring on Carter, the actor was recently named as the host of Bravo’s new nighttime talk show. The upcoming fall series — which doesn’t have an official premiere date and will be executive produced by Andy Cohen — was originally set to be called Real Men Watch Bravo, but the series title has been changed to the more inclusive-sounding, Bravo’s Play by Play.

Dr. Najeeb Riaz, M.D.

Focusing on eating disorders in boys Eating disorders are often characterized as conditions affecting young girls and women, but statistics show these conditions also impact a significant number of boys and men. However, due to stigma and cultural biases associated with eating disorders, boys are often less likely to seek treatment. The Princeton Center for Eating Disorders at Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Centertreats people of all genders, from age 8 to adults, for the physical, psychological and nutritional aspects of their condition. Overcoming Misconceptions As the National Eating Disorders Association notes, eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa will affect at least 10 million males in the United States at some point in their lives. While the signs and symptoms of eating disorders are similar for boys and girls, boys face an added hurdle to diagnosis and treatment – overcoming the misconception that their condition is a girls’ disorder. Like girls with eating disorders, boys may also have a distorted sense of body image. While some boys might focus on losing weight, others are determined to bulk up, which can lead to steroid use and reliance on protein shakes

and other supplements to enhance muscle development. Risk Factors Risk factors for eating disorders in boys include a range of biological, psychological and sociocultural issues. Chronic body dissatisfaction, exposure to trauma, depression and anxiety can all contribute to the development of an eating disorder. No age group is immune from developing an eating disorder, but boys age 10 to 14 are most at risk as they go through growth spurts and sexual development. Psychological injuries, including injuries caused by physical or sexual abuse, may also trigger attempts to delay or stop a growth spurt by reducing food intake. Additionally, society’s preoccupation with body image and appearance can play a role in eating disorders. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, one-quarter of teenage boys are dissatisfied with their bodies. Other risk factors include: • Family history of eating disorders. • Low self-esteem. • Substance abuse. • Personality traits such as perfectionism. • History of excessive dieting, frequently skipped meals, or compulsive exercise. Further, high school ath-

Dr. Najeeb Riaz, M.D. letes, including wrestlers, dancers and gymnasts, as well as models, are also at greater risk for developing an eating disorder. Signs of Eating Disorders No matter their gender, people with eating disorders are often unusually concerned with weight loss, dieting and control of food. They may also: • Make frequent trips to the bathroom around mealtimes. • Cut their food into tiny pieces and rearrange it on their plate. • Hide their body with baggy clothes. • Seem concerned about eating in public. • Withdraw from friends and activities. And while the outward signs of an eating disorder may be obvious, malnutrition associated with an eating disorder can have serious hidden health complications, including:

• Low blood pressure, heart rate and breathing rate. • Poor growth in height and weight. • Interrupted sexual development. • Heart problems that can lead to abnormal heart rhythms. • Brittle bones and risk of fracture. • Dehydration and abnormal electrolytes. • Constipation and other digestive problems. Moreover, boys usually experience low levels of testosterone and vitamin D, putting them at greater risk for osteopenia and osteoporosis. The risk of death for males with eating disorders is higher than it is for females, according to the National Eating Disorders Association, partly because they are often diagnosed later due to the misconception that males don’t have eating disorders. Early Intervention and Treatment Early intervention is key to treating eating disorders and preventing longterm complications. Treatment at the Princeton Center for Eating Disorders includes a comprehensive medical assessment, nutritional counseling, medical monitoring, and individual and family therapy. Individuals learn everyday skills with activities such as family-style meals that teach healthy eating habits.

The treatment team includes board certified psychiatrists, registered nurses, licensed psychotherapists, registered dietitians, mental health associates, board certified physicians and certified teachers to provide private tutoring for school-age patients.

ter for Eating Disorders call 888.437.1610 or visit Najeeb Riaz, M.D., is board certified in child and adolescent psychiatry and is medical director of the Princeton Center for Eating Disorders at Penn Medicine Princeton Medical Center.

. Where did you grow up? A. My home town is Lawrenceville, New Jersey. I attended the Lawrence School system K-10, studying my last two years and graduating from the Hun School of Princeton. The Buxton side of my family came to Lawrenceville in the late-1800’s and operated a dairy farm on LawrencevillePennington Road. The dairy branched to Buxton’s Country Shops a chain of 32 restaurants, known for the best ice cream in the area. The Coleman (mother) side of my family came to Mercer County in the mid/late-1600’s, they came to America with Henry Hudson. My grandfather’s farm was on Quakerbridge Road across from the Mall.


. What do you like most about living in this area? A. I find Mercer and Bucks counties to be amazing areas to introduce buyers to. Our towns have small town, historic charm and original farmlands. We are an hour from NYC by train and 45 minutes to Philadelphia by car. You can reach the Jersey shore in less than an hour and be in the Poconos in less than two. We have some of the best public and private schools in the state and country. Our communities get together and celebrate events and our residents look out for one another. I have always enjoyed living here and raising my two sons here.


. What did you do before Real Estate? A. My restaurant career began with dipping ice cream at Buxton’s at 16. After graduating from Rollins College, I worked as a General Manager for Rusty Scupper & JB Winberie in Atlanta

and north Jersey. I finished my hospitality career in 2000 as Asst. General Manager responsible for the operation of 25 food and beverage establishments in Terminal C at Newark Airport.


. How long have you worked in Real Estate? A. 18 years. I moved back to Lawrenceville in 2000 with my husband John and year old son Thomas. We purchased a family home. While on maternity leave that year for our second son Justin, I went to school for my real estate license and started a new career. A decision I have embraced and have truly enjoyed. The last nine years of my real estate career have been with Keller Williams.


April 18, 2015 – attended Lawrenceville Fire Company 100th anniversary gala with my father, Gordon Buxton and brother Darren Buxton. My dad was honored as a former chief and his 70+ years of service and membership


. What do you enjoy doing when you are not working? A. Family time is very important. We enjoy travelling – skiing in the Berkshires in the winter and beaches or cruises in the summer. I am also very involved in community organizations and events which support my family and town – on the board of Lawrence Twp. Education Foundation, kitchen coordinator for LOGOS program at the Presbyterian Church, scholarship committee for the Woman’s Club of Lawrenceville and former board member for Lawrenceville Main Street. I look forward to the challenges, fun and new experiences each season and new year. 2018 Buxton Monsport Real Estate Team – Mark Cutaneo, Dawn Buxton Monsport & John Monsport
