PU Releases Reports On Sexual Misconduct, Plans Path Forward Princeton University released two new reports last month regarding policies, resources, and communications for combating sexual misconduct on campus. Generated in response to protests last spring organized by Princeton IX Now (formerly Princeton Students for Title IX Reform), the reports, one external and one internal, offer recommendations on the University’s Title IX process. The protests culminated in a nine-day, roundthe-clock sit-in outside Nassau Hall from May 7 to 11. Describing Princeton’s Title IX system in their list of 11 demands as “opaque, victim-blaming, and traumatizing,” the protesters last spring wrote on their website, “We demand the reform of Title IX procedures at Princeton to protect survivors. Individually, we have tried to pursue reform through bureaucratic processes and meetings with various administrators. This has not reformed the system. We demand more.” The website also included accounts from more than 30 anonymous students and University employees about their personal experiences with Title IX. Princeton IX Now’s list of demands included a call for the external review of the Title IX system, along with a number of other items addressed in the two new reports and on the University’s agenda for further consideration and action in the coming months. Following up on last month’s internal and external reports in a letter to the Princeton University community, Provost Deborah Prentiss noted that “the reports converge on four key areas in which the University could and should do more.” She has asked the administration to focus promptly on addressing those areas. As controversy over issues of sexual harassment, assault, and other acts of sexual misconduct take place at universities and throughout the larger society, Princeton has asserted its commitment to “ensuring that all of its community members can learn, work, and thrive in a safe, supportive, and fair environment, free from sexual misconduct and all forms of discrimination to the community.” The external review team of three professionals from Emory University, Duke University, and Virginia Commonwealth Continued on Page 8

Sacks, Lambros Win Princeton Council Seats Democrats Mia Sacks with 4,283 votes (44.99 percent) and Michelle Pirone Lambros with 4,111 votes (43.18 percent) won seats on the Princeton Council in yesterday’s election, defeating Independent Adam Bierman (1,092 votes, 11.47 percent), while three candidates were elected to the Princeton Public Schools Board of Education (BOE), all for threeyear terms. The results are unofficial and do not include provisional and mailin ballots.

In the closely contested BOE vote, the challengers out-polled the incumbents, as newcomer Susan Kanter led the pack with 3,157 votes (27.16 percent), former Board member Dafna Kendal received 2,948 votes (25.35 percent), and incumbent Debbie Bronfeld won the third seat with 2,795 votes (24.04 percent). Greg Stankiewicz’s bid for reelection fell just short with 2,682 votes (23.07 percent). In the race for New Jersey Assembly for the 16th Legislative District, incumbent

Democrats Andrew Zwicker and Roy Freiman were leading over their Republican challengers Mark Caliguire and Christine Madrid at press time. In Princeton the tally was 3,491 for Zwicker, 3,331 for Freiman, 653 for Madrid, and 643 for Caliguire. With 98 percent of Mercer County districts reporting, Democrat Brian Hughes was on his way to winning his fifth fouryear term as Mercer County Executive with 35,729 votes (68.83 percent), handily overcoming his Republican opponent Lishian “Lisa” Wu, who had received 16,161 votes (31.13 percent). Princeton voters supported Hughes by 3,264 to 762. In the only other countywide election, incumbent Democrats Andrew Koontz and Nina D. Melker, running unopposed, regained their positions for another twoyear term on the Board of Chosen Freeholders. —Donald Gilpin

The five-story building at 20 Nassau Street, home to numerous offices, health care professionals, and retail businesses, has been purchased by a company that develops hotels in university towns. According to management of the building, the sale to the Chicago-based Graduate Hotels closed on October 31. Tenants were able to meet on Monday, November 4 with representatives of the hotel firm, who told them their existing leases would be honored, according to the owner of one of the building’s ground floor retail businesses.The retail owner, who has operated his business for 20 years, declined to be identified, but said there were no assurances by the new owners that leases would be renewed. The red brick building dates from 1918 and once served as a dormitory for Princeton University students, according to the 20 Nassau website. The site advertises more than 70,000 square feet of space, with 112 office suites ranging in size from 150 to 450 square feet, and a few larger spaces over 1,500 square feet. It is the largest office building in Princeton and has traditionally been the most affordable. Among the ground-level Continued on Page 10

low expanse of wall outside Lupita’s Groceries on Leigh Avenue and John Street. Marlon Davila has almost finished his mural titled Jour ney, a n d T h e A r t s Council of Princeton (ACP) has invited the public to attend a reveal party on Saturday, November 9 at 10 a.m., with light refreshments and a formal dedication by Mayor Liz Lempert.

TOPICS Of the Town “It is a dream come true,” said Davila, who grew up in the Witherspoon- Jackson (W-J) neighborhood. “I remember being a kid who loved coloring books and drawing. Years later I still have that same passion for art, and I am creating a mural on this beautiful wall in my hometown on the exact street where I lived for many years.” Dav ila, the ACP’s Fall 2019 Anne Reeves Artistin-Residence, is a first generation Guatemalan who studied fashion at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and continued his education in fine arts and painting at Mercer County Community College, from which he graduated with honors. He recently completed the Artists Teaching Art program at the ACP and now teaches art for children at the ACP’s Paul Robeson Center for the Arts. “It’s incredibly meaningful for me to give back to my community,” Davila said, “and I am truly grateful to the Arts Council of Princeton and its supporters for believing in me and for giving me this unique opportunity.” Timothy M. Andrews, who has underwritten the Anne Reeves Artist-in-Residence program for the next three years, is a major supporter of the project, along with m u r a l s p o n s or s Ku c ke r Haney Paint Co., Studio Hillier, Jerry’s Artarama, and Smith’s Ace Hardware Princeton. The Artist-in-Residence program will enable two artists every year to produce a work of art, and, according to Andrews, “At least three

of the six will be conceived for a specific public space and created after we gain neighborhood approvals and raise additional funds to pay for the preparation, supplies, and installation.” Throughout its planning stages, Davila’s mural project sparked considerable discussion on the uses and purposes of public art, both within the W-J District and in the larger community. The ACP first presented its proposal to the Princeton Public Art Selection Committee (PASC) and the Continued on Next Page

Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) last spring. It was approved by the PASC (an advisory body), but the HPC, whose approval was required because of W-J’s designation as a historic district, asked for additional discussion and input from the community. A neighborhood meeting at the ACP in June was followed by two forums, well attended with wide participation, sponsored by the W-J Neighborhood Association at the First Baptist Church of Princeton in July and September. “What we have learned from the recent process is the importance of community involvement in creating public art,” said Princeton Councilwoman Leticia Fraga after the HPC granted its approval for the project in September. “Cultural art displayed in community spaces can have the benefit of building a sense of space, is welcoming, and allows those who connect with it to feel at home. I applaud members of the WitherspoonJackson neighborhood for working together to build a welcoming community.” Davila has been working on site during the past month and has interacted with a number of local residents. “The reaction has been beyond positive,” he said. “The kids love it. They walk by and everyone says thank you. They’re very happy. It’s an amazing feeling just to know that the neighborhood is so supportive about this project. Kids who live around the corner come by and watch me paint.” He continued, “I don’t live here anymore, but my mother does, and it makes me want to come back to live in Princeton.” Davila’s main goal for his art is to open people’s eyes to other perspectives on life and the world, he said. His artwork is influenced by nature, romanticism, surrealism, and the use of symbols to represent an idea. Lupita’s Groceries owner Norma Garcia echoed many other positive responses to the mural and pointed out one particular symbol, the butterflies. “I’m so happy about the mural for the community and for everybody to see,” she said, with some help from her son in translating. “It’s beautiful. I love the monarch butterflies. They can go anywhere. They migrate from Mexico, where my family came from.” —Donald Gilpin

Question of the Week:

“What’s your favorite part of the course?”

(Asked Sunday morning at the Princeton Half Marathon) (Photos by Charles R. Plohn)

“The hill going up Washington Road is really tough, but I really liked the challenge. When you get to the end of that road, you hit Nassau Street and still have six or seven miles to go. So I got a big boost of motivation knowing I had tackled that difficult stretch.” —Isaac Strauss, Washington, D.C.

Miyoko: “This is my first time running a marathon in the United States. The whole racecourse is beautiful. There is a lot of nature, the people are very kind, and I thought that this was a very exciting atmosphere.” Mingshun: “The most beautiful part for me is seeing the spectators on the side of the race who make you feel very encouraged and keep you going.” —Miyoko Marubayachi, Fukuoka, Japan with Mingshun Li, West Windsor

“Herrontown Road was a slight slope, but it was long. It was really challenging, and I loved running through the woods up there. I’ve done a number of marathons in New Jersey, and Princeton is my favorite and definitely the most difficult.” —Sonny Alejandro, Plainsboro

University, all with extensive experience in the field of Title IX issues, found that Princeton had a strong Title IX infrastructure, but noted that, despite those objective strengths, “some students feel that their needs are not being met.” In the area of recommended support offered to students involved in sexual misconduct cases, including “additional resources, new programs, enhanced communications, and other mechanisms,” Prentiss has called on University Vice President for Campus Life W. Rochelle Calhoun to come up with a plan by the end of the calendar year, with the goal of complete implementation by the end of the academic year. Noting the difficulty in implementing recommended changes in the University’s adjudication process in sexual misconduct cases because of frequently changing federal regulations and guidance on Title IX, Prentiss called on University Vice President and General Counsel Ramona E. Romero to assess the recommendations in the reports and render advice by the end of the calendar year. To implement the reports’ recommended enhancements to training programs, communications, and engagement efforts in order to create a more positive campus climate and culture, Prentiss has asked the Council of the Princeton University Community (CPUC) at its next meeting on November 11 to create a new committee on sexual misconduct, which she will charge with developing a plan for implementing the reports’ recommendations on training, communications, and engagement. In response to the reports’ recommendation that the University explore alternative procedures and practices for resolving complaints about sexual misconduct and restoring the complainant, the respondent, and the community outside of the regular Title IX procedures, Prentiss pointed out

that a working group is already exploring these possibilities, and she has asked that it speed up its work and deliver a report with a set of recommendations by the end of this calendar year. “We will have many opportunities to discuss these reports as a campus community, beginning with an initial discussion at the CPUC meeting in November,” Prentiss said. The external review report

concludes, “To be at all successful in preventing and responding to sexual misconduct, a college or university must commit to continuous improvement — assessment as well as action — and continuous engagement at all levels with consideration of all viewpoints and feedback. In this sense, a Title IX program is never fully built yet can be operating exceptionally well.” —Donald Gilpin

After more than a year of planning, proposals, and meetings with residents of the surrounding neighborhood, Princeton Theological Seminary has announced it will no longer proceed with a project that would build new student apartments on the campus. A release from the Seminary last week said that instead of the construction of new student housing on its Tennent Roberts campus along Hibben Road and Stockton Street, it would focus on restoring existing buildings at the campus. The school cited “increased cost estimates for the project” as the primary reason for the decision. Key elements of the plan included new apartments on the main campus for single and married students, the renovation of Hodge and Brown halls to include private bathrooms, renovation of Alexander Hall, and renovation or replacement of the Mackay Center. As part of the plan, the campus would have been designated a redevelopment zone, which proponents said provides for more control

over design specifics than the traditional zoning process. But during neighborhood meetings, there was pushback from some residents who were concerned about density and increased traffic. Abandoning the plan means that some students will continue to be housed at the Charlotte Rachel Wilson apartments in West Windsor, near Princeton MarketFair, “for the foreseeable future,” according to the statement. Princeton Councilman David Cohen, who chaired the ad hoc committee exploring the proposal, said this week that he was disappointed, but not surprised, by the decision. “We knew that they were taking a long time to get back to us after their summer break, so I figured something was not completely to their liking,” he said. “I wish we had been better able to convey the benefits of the project to the community, because I do think it was a real smart growth project. In fact, it’s the easiest kind of smart growth, because in addition to the benefits of being more walkable, more

sustainable, and less congested, it would also have shrunk the footprint of the Seminary overall. And they are shrinking their student body, faculty, and staff.” Not all of the neighborhood residents were against the project. “Some of them were really in favor of it, because it would have provided for traffic calming, and some setbacks,” Cohen said. “Others felt benefits to the community were debatable.” A statement from Mayor Liz Lempert about the Seminar y’s decision thanked those involved in the process over the past year. “We continue to believe in the value of redevelopment as a creative planning tool to deliver community benefits, even though it didn’t bear immediate fruit in this instance,” the statement read. Seminary President Craig M. Barnes said in a letter to the community, “We remain committed to providing the campus facilities that enhance our life together and foster spaces where a sense of community can flourish.” —Anne Levin

was a lovely guy. We’d see Photos by Charles R. Plohn him in passing. And then they [Fenwick] reached out.” The couple took their time before decided to buy the restaurant. “We had to think about it,” said Gautam. “It’s a big space, and it’s not in the downtown. So that was initially intimidating and scary.” These days, the couple consider the WitherspoonJackson neighborhood location an asset. “We have 140 parking spots with a security camera,” said Gautam. “Parking is free, with validations. The more I came here, the more I realized what a plus that was.” H e ad i n g T h e M e e t i n g House team as front- ofhouse manager is Dago Villanueva, formerly the general manager at Agricola. The menu will be focused on simple American cuisine, using seasonal ingredients bought from local farms. Weekend brunches will feature “really good pancakes, bacon, homemade sausage, and that kind of thing,” said Gautam. The kids’ menu will have “really good, healthy food,” added Maher. “The veggies you see on our adult menu will show up on the kids’ menu. They won’t be eating overpriced junk food. It’s an approach that makes it enjoyable for everyone.” The family-friendly focus is only part of the equation. “We also want this to be the place where we can go for date night,” said Gautam. “We might have live music and jazz. We’re bringing on an events person.” T h e b a s e m e nt l e ve l, which the former owners did not utilize, is part of the current plan. It includes a stage area, a large room, and a section that can be used for private parties. “We have this massive space downstairs, and we want to make it accessible to all kinds of families no matter their income level,” said Gau- Top Female Finishers: Nicole Strand, center, 1:25:51; Alison Thompson, right, 1:26:01; and Suzanne Forlenza, 1:26:17. tam. “We want local sports teams, schools, and community groups to use it. We’re still developing the cost but it will be significantly less, as far as minimums go, than most restaurants in town. It’s not just for a corporate, fancy dinner. We want to have a mix of events, a mix of people hiring out the space and what we put on.” The opening date for the restaurant is targeted for November 20, but not yet set in stone. For more inNEW HOSTS: The Meeting House, previously known as Two formation, visit www.meetSevens, is now owned by married couple Amar Gautam and Amanda Maher, who have three young children and want the —Anne Levin reconfigured restaurant to welcome families like their own. The Witherspoon Street eatery next to Avalon Princeton is being renovated to reflect a warmer, more casual aesthetic, with a less expensive menu.

When The Meeting House restaurant opens its doors later this month, new owners Amar Gautam and Amanda Maher are expecting some pint-sized patrons to be part of the first-night crowd. Formerly known as Two Sevens Eater y and Cantina, the space at 277 Witherspoon Street has been redesigned to be more family-friendly than its predecessor, while still appealing to hip diners who might be out for dinner or drinks. “This will be a community-based restaurant with a burger on the dinner menu, a great $9 glass of wine, and a great beer selection,” said Gautam. Added Maher, “Having three kids of our own, we’re going to say to people, ‘Your kids are not just allowed here, they are welcome here.’” In a recent tour of the sprawling space, the strikingly attractive couple — he’s 47, she’s 42 — seemed energized by the dust and deafening din of construction. The restaurant has a new entrance, and the formerly open kitchen has been enclosed. The sleek expanse is being softened with lots of wood, rugs, greenery, and more light. “The style is classic, though not particularly stylized or stylish,” said Maher, who is actively involved in the project with Philadelphia-based designer Isabella Sparrow. “It will definitely be warmer and cozier. My

hope is that you get a really warm, lovely feeling when you walk in.” T h e cou pl e m ove d to Princeton two years ago from New York City. Raised in South Brunswick, Gautam was a human resources consultant who owned a Manhattan bar for several years. M a h e r, o r i g i n a l l y f r o m Short Hills, was a lawyer who earned a doctorate in political philosophy, which she now teaches part-time at Drexel University. Somehow, they have found time to plan a new restaurant that they hope will fill what they perceive as Princeton’s need for more affordable places to take the kids for brunch, lunch, or dinner. Two Sevens closed in October 2018. Former owner Jim Nawn of the Fenwick Hospitality Group announced plans at the time to reopen with a newly defined concept. Six months later, Nawn announced the sale of the group’s other three restaurants, Agricola, Cargot, and The Dinky Bar & Kitchen, to the Harvest Restaurant Group. But Two Sevens was not part of that deal. Gautam and Maher had patronized Two Sevens during its brief existence, and had become acquainted with Nawn. “We had been thinking about doing a hospitality thing here, and I had met with him because I was curious about things like liquor licenses,” said Gautam. “He

Concierge Medicine

There’s a new trend in healthcare, and it’s gaining momentum in our area. By Sarah Emily Gilbert (Originally published in Princeton Magazine) Dr. Barbara A. Brown (left) and Dr. Lynne B. Kossow of Princeton Lifestyle Medicine.


or the past few years, Dr. Lynne B. Kossow and Dr. Barbara A. Brown of Princeton Lifestyle Medicine have offered their patients far more than the traditional primary care practice. Most doctors see 25-30 patients a day for an average of 15 minutes, but Drs. Kossow and Brown see six to eight patients a day for up to an hour. In addition to providing treatment for acute illnesses, the doctors act as their clients’ healthcare coaches through Lifestyle Medicine, a scientific approach to patient wellness by effecting changes in areas such as diet, physical activity, and stress management. With the current shortage of primary care physicians and the abundance of high volume practices, this type of individualized attention is rare. However, by switching to a concierge format, doctors like Kossow and Brown are able to practice medicine that consists of this broad-spectrum care. Concierge medicine, also known as retainer-based medicine, is an umbrella term for private medical care wherein patients pay an out-of-pocket fee in exchange for enhanced care. Born in the 1990s, concierge medicine was once thought of as a service for the wealthy that charged patients a lofty fee for luxury medicine. In recent years, it has evolved to accommodate patients across all income brackets, leading to expanding interest among patients and their primary care doctors. According to a survey released by the American Academy of Private Physicians at the AAPP 2015 Fall Summit, more than 45 percent of 862 independent physicians would consider a concierge or similar membership model in the next three years. This may be due in part to our aging population needing increased and varied medical services, leading to an imbalanced patient/doctor ratio. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act has increased the number of insured patients, putting a further strain on primary care doctors. As a result, physicians are often unable to dedicate enough time to each patient. In the hopes of increasing both job and patient satisfaction in a financially sustainable way, primary physicians like Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown are looking toward concierge medicine. “Where conventional medicine is failing is in the prevention and reversal of chronic diseases that are becoming an epidemic in the United States today,” explain the doctors. “The current insurance model is built upon a problembased economic reimbursement that encourages doctors to address medical problems very quickly. This leads to most doctors rushing to see 25-30 patients per day in order to make ends meet…This is not how we have ever practiced. We always want to have the time to address the root cause of diseases that are preventable today.” Lifestyle Medicine is a 21st century approach to healthcare that consolidates the very best characteristics of traditional medicine with the profound impact of lifestyle behaviors on health. As our program grew, it became readily apparent to us that integrating Lifestyle Medicine into our internal medicine practice was the best way for us to continue to provide exceptional care. We feel that the concierge model is the only way to effectively do that.

Concierge medical practices come in various forms, including those that reject insurance plans all together, but this is not the case for Princeton Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown accept insurance for all covered medical services. In addition, their patients pay an annual fee of $1,200 for the Lifestyle Medicine Concierge program, which gives them access to an elevated level of care. Trained at the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine at Harvard Medical School, the doctors are at the vanguard of their field, having lectured about their practice development model at The Institute of Lifestyle Medicine Conference in 2015. They are also members of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and the American College of Physicians. They are among the first physicians to become board certified in Lifestyle Medicine, as well as maintaining their board certifications in internal medicine. Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown’s practice is unique in that it offers patients comprehensive conventional medical care combined with lifestyle counseling. Patients interested in a natural approach to disease prevention are provided in-depth, individualized coaching based on their needs. The doctors can assist with everything from quitting smoking to creating a manageable diet and exercise plan. According to the doctors, this is an evidence-based practice that has been shown to prevent, reverse, or slow down heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, and some cancers. The concierge model offers Princeton Lifestyle Medicine patients additional benefits including access to the doctors’ emails, cell phone numbers, and private phone line, extended patient office visits, a one-hour consultation, and same or next day appointments. As a result, patients see Drs. Kossow and Brown not only as accomplished medical doctors, but health advocates, mentors, and even friends. “Our practice structure allows us to spend more time educating our patients about what may be going on with them medically,” the doctors explain. “We are better able to work with them as partners in their care and advocate for them with their specialists or if they are in the hospital. We provide tremendous support and guidance to them and their caretakers or family. We are happy to have this enhanced communication with our patients. It allows us to make social visits when they are hospitalized at the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro so that we can stay in close touch while they are receiving care.” Concierge practices like Princeton Lifestyle Medicine focus the healthcare system on its most vital component: the patient-doctor relationship. The model emphasizes quality care instead of quick care, benefitting both parties. Dr. Brown and Kossow are now board certified as specialists in the practice of Lifestyle Medicine and are the only physicians in the Princeton area who are board certified in both Internal Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine. As leaders in both concierge and Lifestyle medicine, it comes as no surprise that Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown are at the forefront of this effort, bringing Princeton into the future of healthcare.

The Princeton Lifestyle Medicine Concierge Program is $1,200 per year. The fee can be paid monthly, quarterly, biannually, or annually, and credit cards are accepted as payment. All medical services are billed through the patient’s insurance company as usual. Princeton Lifestyle Medicine is located at 731 Alexander Road, Suite 200 in Princeton, New Jersey.

rent exhibitions.

It also complements the opening of Art@ Bainbridge, a contemporary gallery project that opened in September in historic Bainbridge House at 158 Nassau Street. The Museum Store features original work by regional artisans in many media, including glass, ceramic, wood, textile, metal, and alternative materials, and jewelry.

Palmer Square’s first outdoor skating rink will open on Hulfish Street behind the Nassau Inn on November 30 and will remain open through February 2020. “It’s been a dream of ours for many years,” said Lori Rabon, vice president of Palmer Square. “We are beyond thrilled that this season guests of the Square, and the town of Princeton, will make lasting memories and hopefully start one more annual tradition here with us.” Open skate hours will be hosted primarily on nights, weekends and holidays. The cost per skater will be $10 which includes the skate rentals. Guests can also bring their own skates. Special events and packages will be announced throughout the season. T he holiday s eas on at Palmer Square starts with the annual tree lighting on November 29 (Black Friday).

The “ice” skating rink is a high-quality synthetic iceskating rink called Glice. Glice is a unique non-refrigerated skating surface that performs like ice but requires none of the complex compressors, piping, water, refrigerant, and power of a conventional ice rink, and it operates silently. According to information from Palmer Square Management, Glice is the first eco-friendly, zero carbon skating experience that performs like “real” ice. Palmer Square is now accepting applications for seasonal part time employees for the skating rink. Contact to apply.

Friends of Library Note Beyond Words Benefit Success

To the Editor: The Princeton Public Library’s annual Beyond Words benefit was a sparkling success thanks to all the Library staff, volunteers, sponsors, attendees, caterers, suppliers, singers, musicians, guest speakers, the Nassau Presbyterian Church, and the Spring Street Garage. It was a delightful party, a fitting celebration of the Library, which does so much good for our community. And it was a successful fundraiser, due to the teamwork and generosity of all involved, which will help the Library thrive and continue to be a beloved resource for all. The Friends of the Library thank the community for their support and look forward to continuing the Beyond Words tradition next year. HELEN HEINTZ President Friends of the Princeton Public Library

Bicycle Advisory Committee Thanks Council for Meeting on Transportation

To the Editor: The Princeton Bicycle Advisory Committee (PBAC) is grateful to the Mayor and Council and all who attended the October 21 Special Council Meeting on Transportation to show their support for traffic calming as well as safe biking and walking infrastructure in our town. We are pleased that support comes from a wide cross section of the public and represents different age groups, most neighborhoods of our town, and diverse modes of bicycle use. As Councilman David Cohen commented at the meeting, the public present was united in their strong support for traffic calming, reducing vehicle speeds, installation of more bike lanes, and better pedestrian crossings. We would also like to thank Steve Cochrane, superintendent of Princeton Public Schools, for encouraging students to come to school on foot or by bike, in order to alleviate the traffic congestion with the closure of the Alexander Road bridge. To help make walking and biking to school more feasible and safer, PBAC has been working with Princeton’s two local bike shops to offer discounts to Princeton school students. Kopp’s Cycles, the oldest bicycle shop in America, is offering a 10 percent Bike to School discount to school students on accessories and bike parts (not previously marked down or


on sale), and on special orders, for the duration of the Alexander Road bridge closure. Visit Kopp’s for more information. Jay’s Cycles is working on its own Bike to School promotion — to be announced shortly. Finally, PBAC asks our community, and all who visit here, to help make our roads safer and friendlier to bicyclists and pedestrians. We request implementation of traffic calming and safer pedestrian and bike infrastructure, to reflect the universal support these matters have received at the Council meeting on October 21. In these months that the Alexander bridge is closed, visible progress would go a long way toward encouraging more of our town to leave their cars at home, and making Princeton a safer, greener, and healthier community. LISA SERIEYSSOL Chair of the Princeton Bicycle Advisory Committee

Yes We CAN! Food Drives Collecting for Thanksgiving

To the Editor: Each year, Yes We CAN! Food Drives collects food items on behalf of Arm In Arm so that everyone in our community, regardless of means, can share in the traditions of Thanksgiving. Because turkeys will be available from other outlets, we are again collecting Thanksgiving “fixings” for the patrons of the three food pantries operated by Arm In Arm, a nonprofit organization in Trenton and Princeton. Our volunteers will be collecting such items as stuffing mix, canned sweet potatoes or yams, canned green beans, canned corn, cream of chicken soup, packaged gravy mix, canned pumpkin pie filling, and poultry seasoning/ground cinnamon. No cranberry sauce needs to be collected as several pallets are available from the food bank. For your convenience, Yes We CAN! Food Drives will be collecting the fixings at two locations. On Saturday, November 9, we will be in West Windsor at McCaffrey’s on PrincetonHightstown Road, from 10 a.m to 2:30 p.m. If you’d rather make a cash donation, we will happily shop for you. On Saturday, November 23, we will be at the West Windsor Farmers’ Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can drop off your fixings at our Yes We CAN! tent. The market is located on Vaughn Drive, off Alexander Road, on the way to the Princeton Junction train station. By the way, this is the last Saturday the farmers’ market will be open at that location until next spring. We deeply appreciate your partnering with Arm In Arm and Yes We CAN! Food Drives to help neighbors in need this Thanksgiving. As always, we are deeply grateful. FRAN ENGLER Publicity Chair, Yes We CAN! Food Drives Tuscany Drive, West Windsor

Pointing Out Confusion Between Talk And Action in Fighting Climate Change

Friends of Princeton Open Space Thanks 50th Anniversary Helpers

an awakening of creativity to take advantage of all the renewable gifts of nature — physical, chemical, biological — that have long been spurned. Fighting climate change — a collectively created problem — requires a spirit, unity of purpose, and an attention to numbers that most people only experience in sports. For example, to track our progress, our monthly utility bills would show us five-year trends in our individual and community energy and water consumption. We would be provided the same information for our schools and government. We would take pride in producing more energy and consuming less. Community progress would spur us to do even more as individuals. That’s when we’ll know we’re really fighting climate change. STEPHEN K. HILTNER N. Harrison Street

Dorothy Mullen Embodies The Spirit of Inclusivity

To the Editor: A town’s success depends critically on its ability to engage community members of all walks of life to be active participants in local government, and for volunteers to feel that they can make a difference. There is no magic formula for how to create broader participation. We must work to foster opportunities for engagement and when volunteers or members of our community become frustrated that they are not being heard we must work to re-engage them moving the narrative back to a positive one. When individuals are engaged in a community and contribute the results are magical. One example of an amazing volunteer is Dorothy Mullen. Dorothy embodies the spirit of inclusivity and was recently honored for her work as co-founder of the Princeton Schools and Gardens and founder of the“Suppers”program. Dorothy is a local civic hero. She has worked tirelessly to initiate a garden in our schools and to provide food-based education programs. She has profoundly changed how we view food at our schools and leaves a legacy that ensures her influence will be felt for generations to come. And she is informed by a strong desire to include everyone in the discussion about healthy food. When she discovered that I have a non-verbal autistic child at Riverside School, she organized an event to ensure that the special needs children and their families at Riverside received education and support to participate in the healthy food initiatives. The event helped bring families closer together and enhanced relationships with the staff and leaders of the school. I want to extend a thank you to all the special individuals in our community who volunteer on commissions, boards, in our schools and with community groups. I hope our town will continue to follow the shining examples like Dorothy Mullen and that we can work to find ways to create more opportunities for all community members to engage in a dialogue with leaders.

Books First Toni Morrison Conversation At Richardson Auditorium Nov. 13 P r i n ce ton Un ive r s it y’s Lewis Center for the Arts will present the first event in “The Toni Morrison Conversations — Artists Reflect on Toni Morrison’s Gifts to Life, Art and Culture,” on November 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Richardson Auditorium on the Princeton campus. It will be the first in a series of events spanning the 2019-20 academic year featuring artists engaging with themes, questions, and possibilities relevant to the work and legacy of writer and Princeton Professor, Emeritus, Toni Morrison. The series will open with legendar y choreographer Bill T. Jones and awardwinning photographer Deana Lawson in conversation with 22nd U.S. Poet Laureate and Lewis Center Chair Tracy K. Smith with a performance by Rudresh Mahanthappa Tiger Quartet. Although the event is free and open to the public, tickets are required, and advance ticket reservations are encouraged through University Ticketing at tickets. The series pays tribute to Morrison, who died on August 5 at the age of 88. A world-renowned writer and Nobel laureate, Morrison was the Robert F. Goheen Professor in the Humanities, Emeritus, at Princeton, a professor of Creative Writing, and founder of the Princeton Atelier. The series continues on February 4 and April 28. The April event is being planned in collaboration with Princeton’s Department of African American Studies and its annual Toni Morrison Lectures, scheduled for April 27 and 29. The series is co-organized by Smith, who is also Princeton’s Roger S. Berlind ’52 Professor in the Humanities

Princeton Public Library will hold “A Celebration of Poet Jean Hollander” as part of its Poets at the Library series on Monday, November 11, at 7 p.m. in the Community Room (doors open at 6:30 p.m.).

Jean Hollander

and professor of creative writing, and Paul Muldoon, Princeton’s Howard G.B. Clark ’21 University Professor in the Humanities, director of the Princeton Atelier, and professor of creative writing. “In this year following the loss of Morrison’s presence on earth, we are grateful for the chance to celebrate all the many lasting gifts she has given to humanity,” said Smith. “This series affords us the opportunity to talk with a range of artists working in various forms and disciplines about the ongoing relevance of Morrison’s work to their own creative process.”

Morrison joined the Princeton faculty in 1989 and was a member of the University’s Program in Creative Writing until she transferred to emeritus status in 2006. In 1993, she became the first African American to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Her work has been translated into at least 20 languages. Her groundbreaking novels include The Bluest Eye (1970 ), Sula (1973), Song of Solomon (1977), Beloved (1987), Paradise (1997), and God Help the Child (2015). Her latest book, The Source of Self-Regard: Selected Essays, Speeches, and Meditations, was published in early 2019.

The event includes “A Tribute to Jean” by Lois Marie Harrod followed by readings of Hollander’s work by Linda Arntzenius, James Richardson, Winnie Hughes, Frederick Tibbetts, and others, as well as a short open mic session. Jean died April 10 at her home in Hopewell where she had lived since 1965.

James Baldwin’s “Fire” Subject of Conversation

Library Live at Labyrinth and the Paul Robeson House present Eddie Glaude, Daniel Baldwin, and Steve Shapiro discussing James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time on Tuesday, November 12 at 6 p.m. This event is cosponsored by the Princeton Public Library, Princeton Universitys Humanities Council, and the Paul Robeson House of Princeton. Photographer, documentarian, and activist Steve Shapiro will be talking about the illus-

contributed the photographs, with Eddie Glaude and with James Baldwin’s nephew, Daniel Baldwin. Glaude’s book on Baldwin will be out next spring. First published in 1963, James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time has been reprinted with more than 100 photographs from Steve Schapiro, who traveled the American South with Baldwin for Life magazine. He has documented six decades of American culture, from the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and the presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy to Andy Warhol’s Factory and the filming of The Godfather trilogy. He has published a dozen books of his photographs, has exhibited his work in shows from Los Angeles to Moscow, and is represented in the permanent collections of the Smithsonian Institution, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the J. Paul Getty Museum, among others. Eddie Glaude is a professor and chair of African American Studies at Princeton. He is best known for his books Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul and In a Shade of Blue: Pragmatism and the Politics of Black America. Daniel Baldwin is the son of David Baldwin,

engineer, consultant, and artist.

Philip Nord Speaking At Labyrinth Books

Dr. Philip Nord, Rosengarten Professor of Modern and Contemporary History, will be speaking at Labyrinth Books on Wednesday, November 13, 4:30-5:45 p.m., on the recently published book, Formations of Belief, Historical Approaches to Religion and the Secular, edited by Philip Nord, Katja Guenther and Max Weiss. Through ten essays, Formations of Belief explores new perspectives on the ebb and flow of religious and spiritual beliefs, their core orientations, and how the emergence of the Reformation and Renaissance caused prominent religious beliefs to waver, making room for the rise of the secular and secularism in the industrialized Western world. In the late 20th century, however, as rapid changes in human communication, mass migration and a global economy began to emerge, there has been renewed interest in religion and a subsequent decline in secular belief. Nord will discuss this phenomenon in an interview with Libby Zinman Schwartz, Princeton writer and psychotherapist.

Channeling Baseball at the J.D. Salinger Centennial Exhibition Don’t ever tell anybody anything. If you do, you start missing everybody. —J.D. Salinger, from The Catcher in the Rye f you really want to hear about it, the first thing you’ll probably want to know is how a column about last week’s World Series, Walter Johnson, Buster Keaton, and old Baron von Humboldt has landed like a well-hit, wind-blown foul ball smack on top of the typewritten manuscript of The Catcher in the Rye displayed in the New York Public Library’s J.D. Salinger centennial exhibition, which is free, if you want to know the truth, and will be on view through January 19, 2020. In the first place, Salinger is the only American writer you could pair with Shoeless Joe Jackson, roll the dice online, and score a winning answer, and in the second place, you’d need to read his story “The Laughing Man” about a group of kids from P.S. 165 on 109th Street called the Comanches and a “shy, gentle young man” called the Chief, who had once been “cordially invited to try out for the New York Giants’ baseball team.” According to a financial arrangement with the parents, the Chief would pick up the boys outside school in a “reconverted commercial bus” and drive them over to Central Park to play soccer or football, or, in this case, baseball. Afterward, the Chief would treat them to a running story (“it tended to sprawl all over the place”) about the adventures of the Laughing Man, “who had been kidnapped in infancy by Chinese bandits.” The plot of the story proper turns with the arrival in the Chief’s life of a peerlessly beautiful Wellesley girl who insists on playing center field with a catcher’s mitt but is welcomed for her prowress as a hitter and speed on the bases (“She seemed to hate first base; there was no holding her there”). The hideously deformed anti-hero of the Chief’s story, his head having been twisted “several turns to the right” in a carpenter’s vise by his kidnappers, is so terrifying to behold that he wears a gossamer mask made out of poppy petals (“he reeked of opium”). Given the setting of the centennial exhibit, you should know that on rainy afternoons, in addition to his duties as a driver, father-figure, storyteller, and coach, the Chief takes the Comanches to the Museum of Natural History, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with probably an occasional trip south to the big Beaux Arts building on the corner of Fifth Avenue and 42nd Street where, as the exhibit commentary notes, Salinger spent many hours and “retained a lifelong affection for the Rose Main Reading Room.” Allie’s Mitt Another thing about Salinger and baseball obliquely related to the author-editor material from the publishing game dis-


played in the small room with the large name (the Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Gallery) is the composition Holden Caulfield agrees to write for his toohandsome-for-his-own-good roommate Stradlater. Told that the subject had to be “anything descriptive,” like a room or a house “or something you once lived in,” Holden chooses to write about the lefthanded fielder’s mitt that belonged to his dead brother Allie, who penned poems in green ink all over it so “he’d have something to read when he was in left field and nobody was up at bat.” Holden figures all he has to do is copy down the poems on the mitt and change Allie’s name, so the teacher will think it’s about Stradlater’s brother. Readers and visitors to the exhibit may be reminded of Salinger’s dealings with publishers and reviewers when Holden admits that he “wasn’t too crazy” about using something so precious and personal in a ghostwritten essay, and especially when, like an author who has put his heart on the page, he describes S t r a d l a t e r ’s r e sponse: “He stood there, reading it, ... with this very stupid expression on his face.” One presumptive publisher’s rationale for rejecting The Catcher in the Rye (“Is Holden Caulfield supposed to be crazy?”) is echoed by Stradlater’s “You always do everything backasswards.” When Holden grabs the paper out of his “editor’s” hands and tears it up, all vicarious writer-readers everywhere will feel like cheering. The Deleted Passage If you were fortunate enough to read The Catcher before it was famous, that is at a time when no teacher was allowed to assign it (the likely kiss of death to spontaneous appreciation), you may have bonded with Holden for keeps in the scene where a Pencey Prep classmate named Edgar Marsalla does something “very crude in chapel” during a pompous, platitudinous speech by “this guy Ossenburger,” an alum who “made a pot of dough in the undertaking business.” My reason for mentioning Marsalla’s epic fart (he “damn near blew the roof off”) is that it precedes the deleted

passage in the manuscript displayed in the centennial exhibit. Imagine readers in the sway of Holden’s unapologetically vulgar style going from “We tried to get old Marsalla to rip off another one” to a forced, phony-to-the-core disclaimer in which the author bends his character out of shape to justify a novel powered by profanity. At the same time, what makes one of the most noteworthy items on display isn’t the evidence of Salinger’s thankfully brief submission to an editor fearful that readers will be repelled by Holden’s language, but the disturbing revelation that an author who has literally carried his creation through harm’s way from Normandy to Nuremberg could be made to compose a paragraph so contrary to the spirit and energy of the novel. One advantage of highlighting this stage in the publication process is what the last sentence says about Salinger’s unusually intimate, unguarded, almost diffident approach to the reader: “If you do read my book, what I’ll do is tell you things I never told anybody in the world. I’ll write the book as if you were a terrific friend of mine.” The “Hapworth” Elephant For the world of readers who have been looking forward to the work Salinger was doing for the last four decades of his life, the elephant in the gallery is the typescript of his novella “Hapworth 16, 1924,” a tour de force that first saw the light in June 19, 1965 New Yorker and has remained in the dark ever since. An indispensable contribution to the Glass family saga, “Hapworth” would have been published in 1997 if not for a series of mishaps related to the author’s strict rules about publicity, not to mention the preemptive attack by the New York Times’ Michiko Kakutani, a misreading so misguided and mean-spirited that Salinger would have seen it as the embodiment of the book-chat circus of publishing he’d left behind. William Faulkner’s observation that every time Holden “attempted to enter the human race, there was no human race there” comes to mind whenever I think of the misreadings, not only of The Catcher

and “Hapworth” but of Salinger’s work in general and the myth of the cranky, embittered recluse holed up in his New Hampshire bunker. Among the centennial exhibition’s most interesting items is a 1982 legal document wherein Salinger admits he’s been writing fiction “rather passionately, singlemindedly, perhaps insatiably” since he was “fifteen or so” and “positively rejoice[s] to imagine that, sooner or later, the finished product safely goes to the ideal private reader, alive or dead or yet unborn, male or female or possibly neither.” The Big Train The summer of 1924 was in the news last week when the Washington Nationals won the World Series. The last time the franchise once known as the Senators was on its way to a championship was the summer Seymour Glass and his younger brother Buddy were at Camp Hapworth. Although Walter Johnson, who pitched the final four scoreless innings of the decisive seventh game, is not mentioned in Salinger’s long story, the Big Train haunted the recent series and by extension this column, which prints on his birthday. The pitcher who struck fear even into the heart of Ty Cobb (“I hardly saw the pitch, but I heard it, the thing just hissed with danger”) was born on November 6, 1887, in Humboldt, Kansas, so named after Baron Alexander von Humboldt, the polymath, naturalist, geographer, explorer, and prophet of climate change. Some 17 miles due south of Humboldt is Piqua, Kansas, the birthplace of Buster Keaton, whose favorite sport was baseball (“I started playing the game as soon as I was old enough to handle a glove”). There’s a YouTube clip from The Cameraman (1928), if you really want to see it, in which Buster does a one-man pantomime pitching, fielding, running, hitting, and sliding home head first in the empty vastness of Yankee Stadium. nd if you really want to know the truth, Salinger himself was born in New York City, January 1, 1919, the year that gave the world the Black Sox scandal and W.P. Kinsella’s novel, Shoeless Joe. In the last chapter, titled “The Rapture of J.D. Salinger,” the reclusive author joins the team of the living dead, disappearing with Shoeless Joe and the others into the mists surrounding the field of dreams. The New York Public Library’s centennial exhibition is organized by J.D. Salinger’s son Matt Salinger and widow Colleen Salinger with Declan Kiely, director of Special Collections and Exhibitions at the Library. For more information, visit salinger. — Stuart Mitchner

in 1920, and it will feature repertoire rooted deep in t he Westminster Choir’s history. A highlight will be Benjamin Britten’s Hymn to Saint Cecilia, reflecting Westminster Choir’s spirit and mission as it has “appeared and inspired” thousands of choral musicians over the past century. The program will also include the premiere of Psalm 96 “Sing to the Lord a New Song,” composed by Westminster Professor Chris t ia n C arey to celebrate the ensemble’s 100th anniversary. Speaking about the new work, Carey said, “It seemed to be an especially appropriate text to celebrate the college’s rich tradition of music-making and express hope for its continued vitality.” T he pro g ra m a ls o i n cludes Daniel Elder’s O Magnum Mysterium, Frederick Hall’s arrangement of Steal Away, Jake Runestad’s Let My Love Be Heard and Arnold Schönberg’s Friede auf Erden, as well as works by O’Regan, Hession, and more. Composed of students at Westminster Choir College, a division of Rider University’s Westminster College of the Arts, the Westminster Choir is also the chorus-inresidence for the Spoleto Festival USA, where it has

nce a staple on the shopping scene, family businesses are becoming a vanishing breed in today’s high-tech world. All the more reason to celebrate Steele’s Wine Cellar, located in the Montgomery Center, 1325 Route 206 North, and owned by brother and sister Justin and Alana Steele.


Having grown up in another family business in Bloomfield, they purchased the existing liquor store in 2010, adding special offerings including craft beers, local wines and spirits, and a monthly wine club. They also established high standards with a focus on an outstanding selection in all categories within a broad range of prices, and with a priority on personal service. Personal Attention “We pride ourselves on our customer service, making sure that we are always fully staffed and ready to give you our personal attention,” explain the brother and sister team. “Our experience, combined with deep community roots and a friendly staff, assure you of a great shopping experience every time. “We provide the professionalism of an established wine store with the per-

sonalized service of your neighborhood wine shop. We listen to our customers and what they want. We do special orders for them, and sometimes, when they have had new items on their travels, they’ll ask us if we can get a particular favorite for them.” Popular choices at the store include whiskey — Scotch and bourbon, especially — craft beers, and wine, both red and white. Ros é is p opu lar i n t h e spring, and in the summer, alcoholic flavored seltzers have become a real favorite, enjoyed for their light and refreshing taste. Flavored gins are also sought after, and Champagne is always a big seller, particularly — but not only — during the holidays. Prosecco has now become an in-demand, less-costly alternative. Time-Honored In addition, Steele’s has a wide assortment of cordials, which are always in favor as an after-dinner specialty. Kahlua, Bailey’s Irish Cream, Grand Marnier, and Drambuie are only some of the many choices available. And, of course, brandy and cognac are time-honored choices for many customers. “Our overall selection includes items from around the world, but we also have a lot of local beers, wines, and spirits, including from Sourland Mountain Spirits, a distillery in Hopewell, and also River Horse craft brewery from Ewing,” reports Alana. “Cocktails are popular to-

day,” she continues, “and sometimes, people have one at a bar or restaurant, and then they want to replicate it at home. We can help with that, and we also can help people plan the number of bottles of wine, beer, or spirits to have for their parties, and also what wines to serve with Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s dinner or parties. In addition, we often create customized holiday gift baskets.” The Steeles make an effort to stay on top of all the latest developments, trends, wineries, distilleries, etc., points out Justin. “I like to try different things — different wines, spirits, and beers — for the first time. We always want to offer customers a great selection. We keep up with the trends and new products. We definitely know what’s new.” Both the store’s configuration and atmosphere are very customer-friendly. Items are arranged in a convenient setting, easily available by category, region, and country. A refrigerator contains a selection of ready-to-go cold beer and wine. In addition, the wide range of prices includes a “value” section of $10 and under wines, with half-bottles also available. Box wines are another popular choice. Mixers, accessories, wine bags, and snacks are also offered. Wine Club The Monthly Wine Club is a highlight of Steele’s Wine Cellar, and “is appreciated in a number of ways,” says


Active & Passive Citizens

Alana Steele. “It is a wonderful gift, and it is also a great way to introduce someone to different kinds of wine. It can be a real learning experience. We have a different kind of wine for all different palates. “It includes either three bottles for $35 or four for $55, along with a newsletter describing the different wines, and also featuring recipes for dinners or different cocktails, such as Apple Cider Margaritas.” The Wine Club has become an important hallmark at Steele’s, and wines can either be picked up or delivered in the area. Now that the store has completed its remodel, a Grand Reopening is planned for Friday, November 8 from 4 to 9 p.m. Tastings, special prices, raffles and prizes, and a Tito’s Photo Booth will all be featured. In addition, it will include a fundraiser for the Rolling Thunder Charities’ Seventh Wreaths Across America Project. “Their goal is to place 1,500 holiday wreaths on veterans’ graves at Somerset Hills Memorial Park in Basking Ridge on December 14. The price of each wreath is $10,” explains Justin. Wide Price Range “We are excited about our Grand Reopening, and we want people to know that we are completely renovated — all with the customers in mind. Expanded space, more product selection, and a very wide price range.” “We hope the community likes what we have done,” he continues. “We make a point to be part of the community.

FAMILY TRADITION: “We completely remodeled the store recently. It’s been expanded to include more items, and more convenient product arrangement and accessibility. We are proud to continue our tradition of a family business, and we always want to be Montgomery’s neighborhood liquor store.” Alana and Justin Steele, owners of Steele’s Wine Cellar, are shown in the store’s cordials section, featuring a variety of top choices. We sponsor and support different groups in the area, including the Montgomery Schools sports teams. It’s very important to give back to the community. We are par t of the Montgomer y Business Association, and it is so vital to support local stores.” Alana and Justin Steele are proud of their loyal customer base, including clientele from Princeton, Hopewell, Montgomery, and the area, as well as Bucks County, Pa.

“We thank them all for their support, and now we hope we can serve them even better with our new remodel. We want everyone to come and see us and experience our special service.” Steele’s Wine Cellar is open seven days: Monday through Thursday 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday 9:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. (609) 924-0900.

Princeton Football Tops Cornell to Improve to 7-0, Now Faces Unbeaten Dartmouth at Yankee Stadium


ast fall, the Princeton University football team cruised to a 66-0 win over Cornell on the way to its first perfect campaign since 1964. Although Princeton brought a 6-0 record into this years’s renewal of the rivalry with Cornell last Friday night in Ithaca, N.Y., Bob Surace sensed that his team was not in for a smooth ride against the Big Red this fall. “You look at Cornell this year and they are a good team, said Surace, noting that although Cornell had started 2-4, each of those defeats has come in tight games, with the team losing by an average of 7.75 points. Sure enough, the foes were locked in a scoreless stalemate heading into the second quarter as the Big Red stopped the Tigers on a pair of fourth down and ones in the first 15 minutes of the contest. “In the last couple of weeks, we have been stopped on drives,” said Surace. “Credit to Cornell, they had some big plays on short yardage against us.” A fumble recovery by Tiger linebacker James Johnson deep in Cornell territory early in the second quarter helped break the ice for Princeton. The Tigers put together a scoring march of 37 yards, culminated by a threeyard touchdown run by Collin Eaddy to go up 7-0.

On its next possession, Princeton drove 80 yards in 15 plays as quarterback Kevin Davidson found receiver Andrew Griffin for a couple of big receptions, including a 33-yard completion that got the Tigers into Big Red territory and and four-yard TD pass. “Kevin threw a beautiful ball down the sidelines to Griffin for a big gain,” said Surace, whose team took a 14-0 lead into halftime. “It was cold and the wind was gusting, there were times that the wind really gusted. On that play fortunately there was no wind, on other times it was tough to throw or catch.” Midway through the third quarter, Cornell narrowed the gap to 14-7 and the Tigers responded with another long drive to go ahead 21-7 in what turned out to be the final score as 12th-ranked Princeton improved to 7-0 overall, 4-0 Ivy League and extended its winning streak to 17. “That was huge, it was a great answer by the offense after they had a terrific long drive against us,” said Surace, whose team marched 75 yards in eight plays, scoring on a four-yard TD run by Eaddy. “The offense got on the field and we had our best drive of the game. We hit a quick screen to Dylan Classi



that went for 49 yards, that got us going.” The Tiger defense played one of its best games of the fall, limiting Cornell to 327 yards of total offense, sparked by junior Jeremiah Tyler who had a game-high 10 tackles with one sack. “JT was terrific, he is playing at such a high level,” said Surace. “It just seems like week to week, he is making plays. He is really doing a good job, his energy level is so high.” The Tigers will have to take things to a higher level as they face undefeated Dartmouth (7-0 overall, 4-0 Ivy) on November 9 in a muchawaited clash being held at Yankee Stadium as part of the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the first football game, played between Princeton and Rutgers on November 6, 1869. “Their scores have just been impressive; obviously last year we knew the quality of the team they had,” said Surace of the Big Green who fell 14-9 to Princeton last year in a titanic battle to suffer its only loss of 2018. “It is like a sequel where all the actors on their team are back, they are fifth year seniors. We have got a few back, like JT but we have a lot of new actors in Kevin [Davidson], Collin [Eaddy], [Jacob] Bermilin, and Dylan [Classi]. We have got to con-

tinue to prepare well. That is one thing that has been great for seven weeks, how our guys have handled the preparation.” Princeton will be preparing hard for a memorable event as the Yankee Stadium venue and a national TV audience on ESPNU give the clash even more hype and luster. “To have two teams that are playing at a high level in this historical event to celebrate 150 years of football, you think about football and the Ivy League has always done it right,” said Surace. “All the schools have done it right with the quality of person, not just football. We do it right with how we bring in quality people. At its heart are these people who are playing this game. There are people on the field who are going to be playing in the NFL but the majority will go on to their life’s work to go on and do great things.” But the future can wait as Surace wants his players to savor taking the field for the final weeks of the campaign. “The 2019 team is only going to be together for a 10week season and it goes so fast,” said Surace. “The players stay in the moment. I want our guys to go out at practice and enjoy each other, enjoy practice, and have the love of the game. They have done such a good job of that.” Surace, for his part, will enjoy scheming for a powerhouse Dartmouth team that is scoring 37.1 points a game and giving up 10.1 and

The Tigers, now 7-0 overall and 4-0 Ivy League, face Dartmouth (7-0, 4-0 Ivy) on November 9 at Yankee Stadium as part of the celebration of the 150th anniversary of the first football game, played between Princeton and Rutgers on November 6, 1869. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) is coming into the game on a high after stunning Harvard 9-6 last Saturday on a last second 43-yard Hail Mary TD pass. “For me, there is nothing like Sunday when I am in at 6:00 in the morning and I get to watch the opponent,” said Surace. “Sometimes, it is the first time I have seen them and

that part is so much fun to try to put together a game plan. On Friday night, some things didn’t work. As a teacher you evaluate what worked and what you can do better. That is the beauty of this job, watching some of these guys develop from freshman year. You watch some of these upperclassmen and they are just playing so well.” —Bill Alden

at the newly-opened Chase Center in San Francisco on November 9. “That gave us focus and foundation. As unhappy as we could be coming back on that bus, we were pleased.” Ref lecting on the preseason, Henderson is pleased to see his squad adopting Aririguzoh’s mindset. “There is a spirit of humbleness with the team; I think we embody Richmond’s spirit generally and that is a really good thing,” said Henderson. “He smiles when you give him a compliment, he can take a joke and he is arguably the hardest worker we have had around for a really long time and we have had a lot of hard workers. I don’t think anyone would disagree that he is one of the most improved players in college basketball history.” The 6’9, 230-pound Aririguzoh, a resident of Ewing who starred for Trenton Catholic Academy in his high school days, is determined to build on the progress he made last winter. “The two biggest things I wanted to work on was to come back in better shape and and to help my teammates offensively with more than just scoring,” said Aririguzoh. “It is engaging with double teams, passing the ball, being more of a facilitator when I have to be but also staying aggressive when I need to be aggressive.” Henderson is looking for more aggressive play from s ophomore poi nt g uard Jaelin Llewellyn, who averaged 10.1 points and 3.0 rebounds last winter with a team-high 55 assists in 21 games, missing seven contests due to illness and injury “I have really been impressed with his leadership; last year when we played Dartmouth here at home, he took over the game verbally towards the end,” said Henderson. “We are going to rely heavily on Jaelin at both ends of the floor to put other people in positions of success, not only defensively but offen-

sively. He is a high level player and a high level person. The ball is his. There is great responsibility in that and also good freedom in that.” Llewellyn, for his part, is ready to assume that responsibility. “I would just say decision-making and getting stronger as well, being more aggressive and just playing my game,” said Llewellyn. “Normally I have been a leader by example but I have to be vocal to be a good leader. I have been focusing on asserting myself more within the team.” Princeton is looking for such veterans as junior Ryan Schwieger (7.5 points, 2.5 rebounds in 2018-19), junior Jerome Desrosiers (5.0 points, 5.3 rebounds), sophomore Max Johns (2.4 points, 1.0 rebounds), sophomore Ethan Wright (3.5 points, 2.9 rebounds), and sophomore Drew Friberg (2.0 points, 0.5 rebounds) to assert themselves more this winter. “Everybody is like an old man, which is good,” said Henderson. “We missed Ryan at the end of last season; he came down with a concussion right at the end. He is way more vocal and taking a larger role on both ends of the floor. Jerome put in a lot of work on the weight room over the summer. Max has a walk softly, carry a big stick philosophy. He is the guts of the team. He doesn’t say a whole lot but he is tough. Ethan and Drew are better.” A battle-tested pair of seniors, Jose Morales (4.5 points, 1.5 rebounds) and Will Gladson (3.3 points, 1.9 rebounds) figure to add toughness and leadership. “Jose and Will are the two fellow seniors with Richmond; we have seen both of them play significant minutes,” said Henderson. “There is a vocalness to the team and it is focused on winning which I love.” In Henderson’s view, the squad’s freshman class of Ryan Langborg, Konrad Kiszka, Tosan Evbuomwan, Jacob O’Connell, and Keeshawn

“It is just playing hard against those type of teams.” Aririguzoh, for his part, is ready to show what he can do for his legion of local fans. “It is really exciting, I am blessed to be in the position I am in with people from home that can look up at me and

see what I have been able to do with this team and what this team has been able to do for me,” asserted Aririguzoh. “I thank coach Henderson so much for this opportunity. I think it is go time for the guys at home, they know it is time to play.” —Bill Alden

W hile practice for the Princeton University men’s basketball team typically starts at 4:45 in the afternoon, Richmond Aririguzoh has stuck to a different schedule over the last four years. “Starting in Richmond’s freshman year, he didn’t want anybody to notice him and he would go into the side court basket and that is where he would get his work done,” said Princeton head coach Mitch Henderson, speaking at the program’s annual media day last week. “If you show up at 4:15, you could set your watch to precision like work being done on that exact same basket. That story just says that there is a humbleness to Richmond. It is don’t worry about me, I will be in the side court working. It would be easy for him to walk around campus and pat himself on the back and ask others to do the same but that is just not his personality. I ask us to make us him; we will all be better for it.” In going 16-12 last winter, Aririguzoh’s stunning improvement in his junior campaign was a main highlight as he averaged 12.1 points and 6.4 rebounds, shooting .693 from the floor and .758 from the line in earning second-team All-Ivy League honors. As a sophomore, he had averaged 2.7 points and 1.7 rebounds a game in a reserve role. Aririguzoh’s emergence as a star helped Princeton make the Ivy postseason tournament where it battled valiantly in the semis before falling 83-77 to eventual champion Yale. Henderson, for his part, saw seeds for future success in the loss to Yale. “I don’t like to talk too much about last season but if I could ever say a loss informs me more going into the offseason, that was the one,” said Henderson, whose team is tipping off the 201920 season this week with games at Duquesne on November 5 and against the University of San Francisco

Kellman could end up making a significant contribution. “It is a great group, they are learning so much on a day-today basis,” said Henderson. “They are all highly recruited, we are thrilled with the group. I think it could be one of the best recruiting classes we have ever had. Right now it is a good sign that they are struggling, not in all ways but to learn how they are going to help make us win. They are taking their cues from the leadership of the team. It is about how do we get better here, that is what we do. They are nodding their heads and putting their heads down.” With a November slate of games that includes Lafayette, Indiana, Arizona State and Bucknell, the Tigers will have to fight hard to keep their heads above water in the early going. “It is a tough schedule, a really, really hard November; we are doing that for a specific reason,” said Henderson. “I have always felt like I want to recruit nationally, I want to play a nationally recognized schedule. I want to compete and I want these guys to compete. My aim every year is prepare these guys to beat the best teams on our schedule and win the league. I think you do that by challenging yourself in the non- conference schedule.” For Llewelly n, dealing with those challenging foes should help steel the Tigers. “I see playing a schedule like that as an opportunity to show the work we have been putting in and to show that we can compete with the best in the country,” said Llewellyn.

London Native Baylis Enjoys the Journey, Helping PU Field Hockey Earn NCAA Berth For Grace Baylis, joining the Princeton Universit y field hockey program involved a longer journey than most of her teammates. Hailing from London, England, star goalie Baylis arrived at Princeton in 2015 confident that she had found a good fit far from home. “I wanted to play at a really good level and get a really good education and this allowed me to do that,” said senior goalie Baylis. “That is what is so special about our program - we love field hockey and you can still pursue whatever you want, academically, socially, extracurricular, and still play.” Baylis and her classmates got some love last Sunday as the program held its annual Senior Day celebration before hosting Cornell in its regular season home finale “It is emotional; we have had such a good four years here and we are so far from being finished,” said Baylis, whose fellow seniors included Taylor Nolan, Krista Hoffman, Carlotta von Gierke, and Maddie Bacskai, who is sidelined by injury this fall and has another season of eligibility remaining. “That might be our last time playing here. It is just so special to get to play here one more weekend, have fun as a team and enjoy it. They make the day so special for us. It turned into a very special afternoon for the Tigers as Princeton posted a 3-0 win, clinching a share of

the Ivy League title and the league’s automatic bid for the upcoming NCAA tournament in the process. “Cornell are a good side, they have had a good season,” said Baylis. “They are massively improved which is good for us; we want the Ivy League to get as good as it can. It was good to play someone good. We played well. We dominated most of the game, to get a shutout is a cherry on top.” In reflecting on the shutout as eighth-ranked Princeton improved to 12-4 overall, 6-0 Ivy and extended its winning streak to nine, Baylis tipped her hat to the Princeton defensive unit. “It is looking at how far we have come defensively this season, we have made massive strides,” asserted Baylis. “Props to Gabby Andretta who has filled some massive shoes and has done it so well with such grace and composure. They did a really great job as did the whole team.” Serving as the voice of the defense Baylis has helped that unit hold its shape this fall. “You have to talk, it is definitely a big role that I play, helping everyone through the game,” said Baylis, who made two saves in the win over Cornell and was later named the Iv y Defensive Player of the Week. “They could do it with or without me talking. As a team we have grown so much. It is really great now

to see them play with such composure.” Earning a share of the Ivy title and clinching another trip to the NCAA tourney made for some great Senior Day memories. “It is massively special; as a team we are very ambitious,” said Baylis of the program which has reached the NCAA Final Four two times in the last three years “Every year, we set very ambitious goals. Last year we did so well but we didn’t achieve an Ivy League title. Actually this year we have achieved something. We have won the Iv y league which is so special. We are going to walk away with a ring, it is really great. This group of girls really deserves it. We have worked so hard in the offseason, preseason, and over the summer. They are so committed to it, they just love it.” Baylis is hoping that commitment will result in a second straight trip the NCAA semis. “I think sometimes the biggest indicator of whether you can make a good run is your team chemistry,” said Baylis. “Last year, we just felt grateful that we were one of the last four teams practicing and that is what it is about. In the grand scheme of things, come the end of November there are only going to be four teams practicing. We desperately want to be one of them so we can be out on this field with each other and just enjoy it.”

P r i nce ton h e ad coach Carla Tagliente has enjoyed seeing the progress made by her seniors. “They came in when I came in so we started together,” said Tagliente. “I am just proud of them, they have all done a great job over their four years. Each had a different journey. They are a big reason why the current team is where we are at right now. They have had a great four years and they are still going right now. I am really happy for them.” Tagliente was proud of Princeton’s effort in the win over the Big Red. “Cornell is much improved and I knew this game would not be easy,” said Tagliente. “We talked a lot about putting Harvard (a 3-2 win on October 26 in a showdown behind teams that were both undefeated in Ivy play) behind us and focusing on this game. They have had good results, they beat Syracuse. They keep the game close, they have good athletes. I was pretty pleased with the outcome of this game. In the second half, I thought we played really, really well. We weren’t getting stuff to drop but the opportunities were there.” The solid effort by the Tiger defense also pleased Tagliente. “We talked at halftime about making the adjustment of getting ball pressure earlier and you saw us stifle them a bit higher,” said Tagliente. “When they did get through, Carlotta and those guys were marking them well and cleaning stuff up. You could just sense the poise defensively was much greater in the second half than in the first half.” Getting poised play from Baylis in the cage has made a big difference at that end of the field. “Grace is a voice of the team and t wo -time cap tain,” said Tagliente. “I am really happy for her and the experiences and opportunities that she has had. She continues to have them going forward this season. It was a good game for her. We have been splitting her and [Grace] Brightbill for the last bunch of games. We let her go the whole game. I felt like she was really focused and playing really well. We let her ride this game out and I thought she had a great game.” Riding the nine-game winning streak as it heads into

its regular season finale at Penn on November 9, Princeton has raised the level of its game with the postseason around the corner. “I do think we are playing better,” said Tagliente. “You could say we should have six goals in this game but the marker of it is the dominance of our play and how cleanly we play. Defensively, we have cleaned a lot up and attack-wise we have cleaned up things.” L ook ing ahead to t he NCA A tourney, Tagliente knows that bringing a winning streak into the competition doesn’t guarantee a long run. “ We h av e g ot to g e t through Penn first and then it is game by game,” said Tagliente. “There is just so much that

goes into each game; there is a lot of emotion and a lot of pressure. We will cross that bridge when we get there. I do think we have the potential; we will get there and it is game by game at that point.” No matter what happens in the postseason, Baylis is glad she made the decision to cross the Atlantic and join the Princeton program. “It has been incredible; if I could do it all over again, I would,” said Baylis. “There have been so many highs and lows and dips and all of that. I just feel so grateful to have been picked up by a program like this, having been able to have an incredible four years and make so many friends.” —Bill Alden

It was only the first weekend of the season but Sarah Fillier felt snakebitten when she didn’t score a goal despite firing eight shots as the Princeton University women’s hockey team posted a pair of wins over Syracuse in late October. S o when si x t h -ran ked Princeton hosted Quinnipiac in its ECAC Hockey opener on October 29, sophomore forward Fillier was ready to break out. “They have played a few more games than we have so they are more in stride than we are,” said Fillier, a 5’5 native of Georgetown, Ontario who tallied 22 goals and 35 assists for 57 points last winter in getting named as a second-team All-American and the National Rookie of the Year. “We knew we had to pay attention the last few days and focus on them and come out here for a battle. It is our third game of the season, it is hard to get going sometimes.” With the teams knotted at 1-1 headed into the third period, Fillier put the Tigers ahead with a power play goal on a feed from classmate Maggie Connors with 18:42 left in regulation “I know Maggie is a skilled player; I was stuck at the top and I passed to her,” recalled Fillier. “Their forward overcommitted and I just jumped into the spot and knew she was going to hit me right there.” Fillier didn’t waste much time scoring her second goal, tallying 7:07 later as the Tigers pulled away to a 4-2 win over the Bobcats. “One of the things that we talked about between the periods was just getting to the net,” said Fillier. “I came off the bench, I got there and the puck just kid of popped to me.” The team’s top line of Fillier, Connors and senior star Carly Bullock has been in synch from the opening face-off this season. “Even last year, it was surreal,” said Fillier. “It is hard to find chemistry like that with people who are really talented and have great attitudes on the bench and are smart players. Over the summer we talked all the time; we knew this year that we had a big freshman class and we needed to step up and be leaders on and off the ice.” Taking a bigger leadership role, Fillier is serving as a team captain this winter. “It is a new spot, it is definitely in a different space than I was last year,” said Fillier. “I learned a lot last year

from our senior class. They were huge in my growth and development. They were super influential.” H av i n g b e e n s e l e c te d to take part in the 2019 Hockey Canada National W o m e n’s D e v e l o p m e n t Team Selection Camp this past August, Fillier grew as a player over the summer. “Every time you play with the national team it gives you confidence,” said Fillier. “You just learn so much in those few days that you go to camp, being there and just being a sponge and just soaking it all in. Then it is bringing it back and not being afraid to share everything you learned. Our team is really open to learning and growing as a group, that is awesome to have.” Having taken her lumps early on in her freshman campaign last winter, Fillier has learned how to pace herself through the season. “I had a slow start, I had no experience and it takes a while to get into the swing of things,” said Fillier. “I think having that experience, knowing that you are going to go through highs and lows and not to get too high or too low with things. It is a long season and school has its stressful moments and you have to know when to take care of your body and when to push.” P r i nce ton h e ad coach Cara Morey knew her team would have to push hard to beat Qunnipiac. “Quinnipiac is one of the best teams in our league so we always know it is going to be a dogfight out there with them,” said Morey. “They are strong and physical.” Princeton’s strong power play, which generated two goals against the Bobcats proved to be a difference in the game. “The power play just has the chemistry,” said Morey, whose special teams unit is spearheaded by the trio of Fillier, Connors and Bullock along with senior defenseman Claire Thompson. “They know where each other are, they know where to move the puck, they know what comes open. It is hard to defend because it is not the same plays every time.” Morey liked the way the Tigers played in the third period as they outscored Qunnipiac 3-1 in the last 20 minutes of the contest. “It was just keep it simple, I thought we were overhandling pucks. We were trying to make the pretty difficult plays instead of the easy, simple plays,” said Morey,

whose team, now 4-1 overall and 2-1 ECACH, had a difficult time last weekend, edging Colgate 1-0 on Friday before losing 3-1 to No. 3 Cornell the next day. “That was the message better puck support. In the second period, our breakout was not good because we didn’t have good support. A couple of lucky bounces and all of a sudden you can play a littler easier. You can protect a lead a little easier in the last 10 minutes than when you are scrapping to keep it a close game.” Seeing Fillier scrap for two goals was another plus in the win for Princeton “They weren’t actually pretty, they weren’t some of her better shots,” said Morey. “She actually whiffed it on the first one, the play was great. She needed that. She had lots of scoring chances against Syracuse last weekend that she didn’t put in. If you are one of those players, you start to take on the weight of the world.” With senior goalie Steph Neatby making 36 saves against Quinnipiac to spearhead the defense, the Tigers are looking solid around the blue line. “Steph has been really good, she is making it look simple,” said Morey.


Fillier Providing Production, Leadership As Princeton Women’s Hockey Starts 4-1

GETTING HER FILL: Princeton University women’s hockey player Sarah Fillier heads up ice in recent action. Last week, sophomore star forward Fillier tallied two goals and one assist as Princeton defeated Quinnipiac 4-2 to open ECAC Hockey play. The Tigers, now 4-1 overall and 2-1 ECACH after beating Colgate 1-0 on Friday and losing 3-1 to Cornell the next day, host Harvard on November 8 and Dartmouth on November 9. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) “We have a lot of talent back there, it is a matter of keeping it simple. Sometimes our defense was trying to do too much on the breakouts. We have a really good d-corps.” While Morey is happy with her team’s good start, she knows that there is a long way to go. “I just see the work that we need to do, you are just look-

ing at the next thing ahead,” said Morey, whose team hosts Harvard on November 8 and Dartmouth on November 9. “You get it done and then you are focusing on what we have to do next. It’s a long season; we have to build, build, build.” In Fillier’s view, Princeton has the potential to do some special things this winter.

“When you are ranked, every team comes to play you with their best game as possible,” said Fillier. “It is just making us better and it gets us excited to play games, knowing that every game is going to be a battle. We have a lot of things to work on. I know our coaches have a good path for us.” —Bill Alden

Sparked by Defender Wolf’s Solid Play, PU Men’s Soccer Stays in Ivy Title Race Richard Wolf earned AllIvy League honors in his first two seasons for the Princeton University men’s soccer team but he was primed to do more this fall. “I like to think I have taken a little bit more of a leadership position,” said junior defender Wolf, a 6’0, 190-pound native of Annandale, N.J. “I got my first goal as well and then I got my second one. That has been a nice change. I haven’t scored in the past three years so it was really nice to get on the score sheet.” Last Saturday, Wolf displayed his leadership on the back line as Princeton battled Cornell to a 1-1 tie though regulation and 20 minutes of overtime, moving to 10-3-2 overall and 2-1-2 Ivy League. “I t w a s a c l a s s i c I v y League game; they probably made us feel more uncomfortable than we have felt in past games with how much they press,” said Wolf. “We didn’t play as much through the middle as we usually do. We played a little longer.” Although Princeton yielded a goal in the second half as Cornell evened the contest at 1-1, Wolf liked the way the Tigers played down the stretch of regulation. “We fixed it up a little in the second half and found our feet and got it wide,” said Wolf. “I think the change in formation in the second half to a 4-3-3 helped us. At times we didn’t hold up enough at the front so as a result they got a lot of throws and corners. We were under for a little bit and that is how the goal came eventually but I felt we were pretty solid for the most part.” Going into overtime, Wolf and his teammates were confident they would come through with a victory. “We were very optimistic and we got a few chances in there that I wish we had put away,” said Wolf. “It is a tough result.” The Tigers have proven to be tough to beat, having gone 5-0-2 in their last seven games and 9-1-2 since starting 1-2. “I think we have found a way with the 4-4-2 formation and a diamond midfield,” said Wolf. “I feel we have been really dominant in the midfield. We have been crushing teams through the middle. They can’t handle us and it makes us get a lot of chances. It has also been sorting out the play up top with our two forwards and the interchange with that.” Princeton head coach Jim Barlow was disappointed that his team didn’t find a way to overcome the Big Red. “We had a 1-0 lead and then we had a couple of really good chances to win it,” said Barlow, whose team took the lead on a header by freshman Walker Gillespie 7:26 into the contest. “I am disappointed with the result. I didn’t think that we had a good first half; it’s soccer, you don’t play well in the first half and you win the first half. Then we play really well in the second half and concede. I thought by far our better half was the second half.” Princeton played well in the overtime, outshooting Cornell 7-2.

“I think that the guys believed right up until the end that we could get one, even in the last couple of minutes,” said Barlow. “It gives argument that there should be an Ivy League tournament.” Barlow credited Wolf with helping the Tigers at both ends of the field. “He is really solid,” said Barlow. “I don’t think that Richard did as well in the first half with the ball as he did in the second half. In the second half, he started a lot of our attacks with some good balls forward and some longer balls too. The tie left Princeton in the position of needing help from other teams to win the Ivy crown even if it wins its last two league games. Yale is currently in first with a 4-1 Ivy mark, followed by Dartmouth at 3-1-1 and Penn tied with the Tigers at 2-1-2. “We just to keep at it, we have improved all year,

you never know what is going to happen in the other games,” said Barlow, whose team plays at Penn on November 9 and hosts Yale on November 16 and would be in the mix for an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament if it wins out but does not take the Ivy title. “Brown would need to get a result against Yale and then we would need to beat Yale and Penn and Dartmouth would need to slip up somewhere too. All of those things can happen so we will see.” Wolf, for his part, believes that Tigers will remain focused on taking care of their business. “It is the same challenge, we have got to hope for other results at this point,” said Wolf. “It is just keep playing the way we are playing and play a little more through the middle, going back to the style that has been successful for us this season.” —Bill Alden

Fueled by Upbeat Chemistry, Senior Leadership, PHS Girls’ Soccer Enjoyed Positive Campaign Although the PHS girls’ soccer team didn’t go as far in postseason play as it had hoped, Val Rodriguez believes that her senior group helped the squad accomplish something special. “I had a group of girls that I enjoy spending time with; they are good kids, they are fun kids with good character who care about each other,” said PHS head coach Rodriguez, whose senior group included Morgan Beamer, Caroline Ealy, Molly Frain, Kirin Kunukkasseril, Shaylah Marciano, Eva Petrone, Voula Papakonstantinou, and Lauren Rougas. “I finally reached my goal here, creating a team like that, being part of a team like that. They made that a priority this year and they stayed committed to it from start to finish. The seniors work hard, they are committed to the game and a lot of them are going on to the next level to play college sports of some kind, either lacrosse or soccer.” Showing commitment to start postseason play, seventh-seeded PHS pulled out

a 1-0 win in overtime against 10th-seeded Nottingham on October 19 in the first round of the Mercer County Tournament on a penalty kick by junior star Vanessa Ponce. “That was a fun game for us; Nottingham is a good team,” said Rodriguez. “They have some talent out there and they play hard for the entire game always. For us to go out there and pull out a win was important for our season and for our morale. It shows our grit. It showed our girls we could really play together and pull something off.” In the MCT quarters at second-seeded Princeton Day School two days later, it looked like the Tigers could pull off an upset as they jumped off to a 1-0 lead in the first half on a brilliant strike by Kunukkasseril only to lose 2-1. “I felt that rush after Kirin’s goal; PDS is a strong team and I think my team gave it their best,” recalled Rodriguez. “We defended their best attack really well. They just came up with goals on two

mistakes that we had. We weren’t able to 1 versus 1 defend on their first one and on the second one they caught us sleeping a little bit on a throw in and got a quick shot and that was all it took.” Moving on to the state tournament, PHS competed in the Central Jersey Group 4 sectional where it was seeded 10th and lost 1-0 at seventh-seeded Old Bridge on October 28 in a first round contest to end the season with an 8-6-3 record. “We went out there ; it is always tough when you t ravel,” said Rodr ig uez. “We traveled an hour, it was a 2:00 game. I felt like we just didn’t really get into our rhythm the way we needed to. We didn’t really find the energy that we needed to. We played pretty well and solid. We didn’t take advantage of some opportunities that we needed to; that is what it comes down to.” That defeat proved to be a microcosm of the season as a lack of firepower kept PHS from taking things to a higher level. “The girls that we had played their best,” said Rodriguez, whose team didn’t have the services of last year’s leading scorer Sophia Lis, who was sidelined this fall with a leg injury. “T hey played well to gether; they solved a lot of stuff. We needed to score more goals. I told the guys at the the end of the season, the good teams are going to

score against us so we have to be able to put a couple in. I think that is where we started to fall short; we just weren’t putting in goals,” Pointing to close losses to such formidable foes like Allentown and Hopewell Valley as well as to PDS, Rodriguez was proud of how her squad battled to final whistle all throughout the fall. “All of those games could have gone the other way, that made the season a little bit disappointing,” said Rodriguez, noting that three of her players, Rougas and Marciano along with junior Greta Bush were chosen as members of the Mercer 33 all-star team. “In most of the losses, we were proud. We didn’t walk off the field upset with ourselves. We felt we were right there.” Looking ahead, Rodriguez feels she has the right mix to produce another competitive campaign. “I think that group is going to remain strong together; they learned a ton from these seniors,” said Rodriguez, whose team will welcome back such performers as junior Ponce, junior Christine Tkac, junior Ava Thomson, junior Grace Heilbronn, and freshman Sarah Granozio, along with sophomore Lis and Bush. “A lot of them had to battle out there for 80 minutes in many games so they understand what it is going to take. Our eight seniors are going to be tough to replace as always. I think that this group that is returning is up for it.” —Bill Alden

COMING TOGETHER: Princeton High girls’ soccer players Morgan Beamer, left, and Vanessa Ponce celebrate a goal in recent action.

Frieda Gilvarg

Frieda Gilvarg died during the night on October 10th, at the age of 97. Widow of Charles, mother of Karyn, David, Martin, and Gail, sister of Elizabeth Mueller, she remained active, engaged, and “feisty” until the end, living independently in Skillman. Frieda Marie Mueller was born June 30, 1922 in LaGrange, IL, to William Mueller and his second wife, Lily Daiss, the second of five children, in addition to three from William’s previous marriage. Her early years included quarantine for scarlet fever, and a prolonged recovery from being struck by a car, but Frieda emerged unscathed from both. She attended Lutheran schools through eighth grade, Lyons Township HS, and then Valparaiso University, earning a degree in Biology in December 1943, and promptly enlisted in the women’s auxiliary of the U.S. Navy, known as the WAVES. Having led a relatively sheltered life, the Navy opened her eyes to the

wider world, and she particularly enjoyed her time in San Diego at the bustling wartime naval base, including the Officer’s Club! After her discharge in 1946, she taught language arts to eighth graders at the Harvard School for Boys while living at home, and enrolled for a Masters in Zoology at the University of Chicago. While at the university she met Charles, and an unlikely post-war romance between a Midwestern German Lutheran and a Jewish New Yorker blossomed. Frieda’s family was very cool to the pairing, and her father imposed a one-year cooling off period, which Frieda shortened to three months, absent the “cooling.” They were married in NYC in 1949, and Frieda was welcomed by the Gilvargs. Back in Chicago, Frieda took a job teaching at Elmhurst College before giving birth to Karyn in 1951. The following August they moved to New York, had David in 1952, and bought a home in Jackson Heights in 1956. In the summer of 1958 Frieda and Charles took a magical extended vacation in Europe while her in-laws babysat, going over on the Ile de France, a luxury liner on its last voyage, and returning with enough rolls of film to create a closet full of slides and memories. Frieda continued teaching in the NYC public schools as a one-year replacement for teachers on maternity leave, but after the birth of Martin in 1959 she put her career on hold to handle the demands of three children and a tight budget. A fourth child, Gail, was born in 1962, making the little row house a very crowded place, so when Charles was offered a full professorship at

Princeton University the following year, the family sold their home and embarked on a six-month sabbatical in Israel, returning to a new life in suburban NJ in the summer of 1964. In Princeton, Frieda oversaw the building of a new home, and began an association with the League of Women Voters that would last until her death, include countless voter registration drives, two terms as president of the Princeton chapter, recruitment of dozens of new members, and ignite a lifelong passion for liberal causes. Frieda also was an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood, driving to Trenton to counsel young women until she was 75. She also did substitute teaching, including a long-term replacement stint at Stuart CDS teaching biology. A nine-month sabbatical was spent in Zurich, with Gail and Martin attending school in Switzerland. She then worked as an employment counselor and as a realtor for Audrey Short. After Charles retired from Princeton he retained his grant-funded lab, but they were free to travel a bit more, and began spending the winters in Scottsdale, AZ, eventually buying a condo near Camelback Mt. Frieda loved the climate, the smaller space to maintain, the frequent visitors and new friends, and politics remained a passion she and Charles shared. Back home in Princeton Frieda volunteered for Meals-on-Wheels for several years, at an age when she should have been receiving them, and continued her LWV activities. Grandchildren started to arrive in 1984, and she ended up being a grandmother of eight, whose lives she followed avidly.

After Charles’ sudden death in early 2013, Frieda moved to Stonebridge, a retirement community in Skillman where many of her friends were residents, and continued to live independently. During this period her grandson Thomas took her on two epic journeys starting from Arizona, one to visit long-lost relatives and friends in California and Oregon, and most recently a whirlwind tour of the South from New Orleans to Princeton, stopping in North Carolina to see her beloved younger sister, Bethy, and sample the cuisine of Alabama and the sights in Nashville. Childhood memories of long trips from Chicago to her mother’s family in San Francisco often came bubbling up on road trips, and Frieda’s love of movement and new landscapes never flagged. She was looking forward to Christmas in La Jolla, a fond memory from her wartime posting, and then driving out to Scottsdale to welcome a new decade. Since her death, her children have fielded a flood of messages, from family, in-laws, LWV colleagues, and residents in the halls at Stonebridge. People remember different things about her but indomitable, feisty, and engaged are always among the words they use. It seems an odd thing to say about a 97-year-old, but it is a tribute to her vitality and spirit that her death came as a complete shock to so many. Anyone wishing to honor Frieda’s memory with a charitable donation should consider Planned Parenthood or the League of Women Voters. A memorial service is planned for the summer of 2020; if you are likely to attend, please let us know.

Peter J. Dungan 1952-2019 Peter Joseph Dungan, 66, died on October 2, 2019 following a short illness. Peter was born November 15, 1952, in Washington, D.C., the second child of Mary (Rowley) Dungan and Ralph A. Dungan, Jr. Pete lived in Virginia until 1964, when the family moved to Chile. In 1967 the Dungans returned to the States and settled in Princeton, where Pete graduated from Princeton High School. Following high school, he enrolled at Stockton State College, and in 1978 he graduated from the University of

Illinois with a bachelor’s in psychology. After college, Pete ran a furniture restoration business in Chicago. In 1984, he moved to Washington, D.C., where he lived with his mother until her death in 1987. Peter then moved to Kodiak, Alaska, where he worked as a commercial fisherman and a substance abuse counselor. He earned his master’s in social work from Eastern Washington University in 1995, after which he worked as a therapist in Nome, Alaska, before returning to Kodiak in 1999. Peter lived in Kodiak, where he maintained a counseling practice, for the next 15 years. In 2014, Pete relocated to Salida, Colorado. Both of Peter’s parents died before him. Pete leaves behind his six siblings: Chris, Nancy, Jim, Moira, Paul, and Jenn, and his stepmother Judith. He is also mourned by his nieces and nephews, aunt, uncle, and cousins. Peter loved helping people through his counseling. He also enjoyed meaningful conversation; a steak from the grill; his dogs; playing guitar; taking drives around his beautiful homes in Alaska and Colorado ; and a good sleep. A thoughtful and sensitive introvert with a strong sense of himself, Pete lived his life independently and on his own terms. He prepared to leave this world similarly, attending to the business of wrapping up his life and arranging his hospice and end-of-life plans. Pete spent his last months v isiting w ith family and friends in Alaska and Colo-

rado. He died peacefully at the Howard, CO, home of his sister Moira and brotherin-law Bill, with his brother Paul and hospice nurse Kayla also at his side, enjoying a view of the mountains. He was well cared for in his last days, and left his life quietly and without fuss, free from fear and with few regrets. He was much loved, and he will be missed. In keeping with Pete’s wishes, there will be no funeral service. Rem embra nce s c a n b e shared at : ht t ps : //w w w. /peterjoseph-dungan.

Peter Douglas Halstead March 17, 1942 – October 28, 2019 Peter “Pete” Halstead, 77, of Washington Crossing, PA, passed away on October 28, 2019. His unwavering determination to meet every health obstacle was an inspiration to everyone. Pete valued the deep friendships that spanned decades. Whether in business or treasured personal relation-

ships, he felt so blessed to live life and live it well. Pete had a genetic kidney disease that took the life of his father in 1970, but was determined to do everything he could to live a long and productive life with his wife, his four children, and seven grandchildren, and his furry friend, K.C. Pete was born March 17, 1942, in Newark, NJ, and moved to Bloomfield, NJ, where he met his childhood sweetheart and wife, Linda, and they recently celebrated 55 years of marriage. Pete loved to play baseball, basketball, and discovered singing when he was asked to be a part of the Colgate 13 A Cappella singing group at Colgate University. He continued singing with a newly formed Vintage 13 group who met annually for their friendships and love of performing. Pete graduated with a BS major in Economics from Colgate University in 1964. He then studied for his MBA at NYU and Farleigh Dickenson, after which he entered the banking world at Manufacturers Hanover in NYC. He stayed in commercial lending until his retirement in 2000, as an EVP of Summit Bank Corp, at which time he became co-founder of Capital Consulting Networks, LLC, focusing on crisis management. Over the years, Pete sat on many boards such as McCarter Theatre, Colgate University Alumni Board, Stony Brook Millstone Watershed, Corner House of Princeton, Cancer Care, and National Kidney Foundation of Delaware Valley. He also served on the boards of MetLife Bank, First Bank of New Jersey, American Sensor

Pete is survived by his beloved wife, Linda, and his children, Deb Cusma (and sonin-law, Stephen) of Titusville, NJ; Amy Willett of Duxbury, MA; Karin Telegadis (and sonin-law, George) of Tampa, FL; and David Halstead (and husband, Andrew Mrakovcic) of East Meadow, NY. Pete was especially proud of his seven grandchildren: Will, Jay, Catherine, Lauren, Christian, Grace, and Sophia. “Pop Pop” will surely be missed.

PROPERTY SHOWCASE Winter is the season for some of nature’s most severe weather. Storms in all shapes and forms can create havoc throughout New Jersey. One of the greatest dangers posed by storms is presented by failing trees. Unsafe trees are a threat to lives and property. Some tree species, including Chinese Elm, Silver Maple, Boxelder, Willow, various Poplars and White Pines have brittle wood that is easily broken. These rapidly growing trees cause a considerable amount of damage to homes, cars, buildings and utility lines each year. Homeowners should be aware of these characteristics and avoid planting them close to potential targets. If such trees are already growing in these locations, preventive pruning, bracing, or cabling may help reduce storm damage this winter. Over the years, growing trees will catch more wind and become heavier, so they are prone to increased mechanical stresses, thus increasing the chances of failure. Large trees can damage a large area should they or their larger limbs fall. This means that power lines, homes, and other structures that might not have been threatened a few years ago might suddenly be under threat by a tree that has grown. Remember that a tree is a living thing. Its integrity and stability change over time, so don’t assume a tree that has survived ten severe storms will necessarily survive an eleventh. Call WOODWINDS (609) 924-3500 or email to schedule an assessment of your landscape.
