First Pride Parade In Princeton Planned For Saturday, June 22 Princeton’s first-ever Pride Parade will take place on Saturday, June 22, with participants starting at 11 a.m. at the Municipal Building and marching up Witherspoon Street before turning right on Paul Robeson Place and ending at the Family YMCA. “We invite all to join us as our LGBTQIA (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, asexual or allied) community and their friends, family, and allies march through the historic Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood and end up at a fabulous after-party at the Princeton YMCA,” said Chief Activist Robt Seda Schreiber of the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice, which is organizing the event. “What better way to walk the walk (both literally and figuratively) of inclusivity and intersectionality than to bring together all of our beautifully diverse communities,” he continued. [Intersectionality refers to a person, group, or social problem affected by more than one discrimination or disadvantage.] Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker (16th legislative district) emphasized the historical context and significance of this event. “Born from the Stonewall riots of 1969, the Pride March was first held in 1970 and has evolved year to year as a way for the LGBTQIA community to move in solidarity and fight for civil rights while celebrating love and community,” he said. “This year, that same spirit will pour through the streets of Princeton,” he continued. “Each step taken will be a memorial to those who came before, a celebration of our LGBTQIA community today, and a promise of a future where every person can live freely as their true self. I am both humbled and honored to be a part of this inaugural march as we walk together with a common message that hate has no place in New Jersey or anywhere else in our great country.” Princeton was host to the first samesex marriage ceremony in Mercer County, officiated by Mayor Liz Lempert, and the town has implemented a number of LGBTQIA-friendly policies in recent years, including trans-inclusive health benefits and job advertising to promote diversity in the workplace.

LALDEF To Feature Speakers on Immigration The Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund (LALDEF) will be holding its Third Annual Stakeholders Meeting on May 29, 5-7 p.m., at the Nassau Presbyterian Church on Nassau Street. “LALDEF has been the key advocate for immigrants in Mercer County and Central New Jersey for one and a half decades,” said immigration lawyer and LALDEF advisory council member Ryan Lilienthal, one of the featured speakers at the May 29 event. “It’s invaluable and irreplaceable. LALDEF is advocating for people who otherwise would go unrepresented.” Four times the size it was only two years ago, LALDEF serves 3,000 people from its headquarters Casa de Bienvenida/Welcome House in Trenton’s Chambersburg District. In her invitation to the May 29 gathering, Board Chair Patricia Fernandez-Kelly emphasized the

organization’s contributions to the immigrant community in Princeton and Trenton. “Are you experiencing compassion fatigue?” she wrote. “This is not the time for you to lose heart. On behalf of justice, LALDEF fights the good fight.” Mentoring students in transition to college through the FUTURO program; offering citizenship class for green card holders; providing tax preparation assistance, ESL training, and referrals to legal advocates; and supplying ID cards for people to safely interact with schools, banks, clinics, and stores are among the services LALDEF provides. In addition to Lilienthal, featured speakers at the stakeholders’ meeting will include Denise Brennan from the Institute for Advanced Study, LALDEF’s Supervising Attorney Aleksandra

NJ Institute of Technology Names School for Architects The New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) has named its College of Architecture and Design for Princeton architects J. Robert and Barbara Hillier. Announced Tuesday, May 21, following the Newark school’s undergraduate commencement ceremony, the naming is in recognition of a gift from the Hilliers that represents the largest donation in the school’s history. J. Robert Hillier, a Town Topics shareholder, declined to reveal the amount of the gift. But he praised the Newark-based NJIT, for which the couple’s firm has built all three versions of its architecture school since 1974. “They are the top architecture school in the country in terms of return on investment for tuition,” he said Monday. “They are kind of an unknown, but they do a really good job.” The gift will provide support for student scholarships, faculty development, stateof-the-art technology, physical space improvements, and curricular innovation. Most significantly, Hillier said, the donation will be focused on research into the growing use of artificial intelligence (AI) in architecture. The use of technology and AI in architecture has soared in recent years, now spanning all aspects of practice. But there is concern that those who don’t incorporate emerging technologies into practice will get left behind. “The gift will allow NJIT to do research on how architects can embrace artificial intelligence instead of getting put out of business by it,” Hillier said. “What I’m fearful about is that with AI, you lose the Continued on Page 8

Asked to associate Hopewell Borough with a particular style of architecture, most people would identify that style as Victorian. But there is more, architecturally, to the historic little town at the base of the Sourland Mountains. On Saturday, May 25 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., as part of

It also said the town’s style was Victorian. But in fact, Hopewell has many other styles. So it kind of caught in my craw. I wanted to have a tour where there were people who were knowledgeable and could counteract that.” The upcoming Hopewell Heritage Weekend seemed an ideal opportunity to launch the tours. Architects Max Hayden, Michael Mills, and Alison Baxter were soon on board, along with archaeologist Ian Burrow of Hunter Research. Hayden, Baxter, and Burrow will lead the tours, each with an individual slant. They will start by giving participants a brief lesson before beginning the walk. “Ian — you could stand him in front of a building and listen to him for an hour,” Anderson said of Burrow. “Because he’s an archaeologist, he knows some things that the architects don’t. For example, he kind of off-handedly said there is brick that came in a particular year and there was a sandstone that was quarried in Pennsylvania, and a bunch of houses in Hopewell were built with that brick because it was cheaper. The Hopewell Presbyterian Church was built with it. He started pointing out different foundations that were built with the stone.” Baxter is the chair of the Hopewell Borough Historic Preservation Commission, “so she’s very much aware of the history of the district — where it is and why it’s a historic district,” Anderson said. “She has the perspective of someone in that community.” Hayden chairs the Hopewell

“The Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood has always held historic significance in the creation of the town of Princeton. It was first occupied by Irish Americans and Italian Americans, many of whom were responsible for the creation of the D&R Canal. It has always remained an evolving community and housed many of the working-class citizens of Princeton. Its designation as Princeton’s 20th historic district could not be more appropriate.” —Daniel Harris, Princeton

5/21/19 12:10 PM

“This community is arguably the first neighborhood in Princeton that you could call a neighborhood based on the fact that it was always a community that supported not only the two largest industries in Princeton at the time, the University and the hospital, but was also a self-contained neighborhood. We had doctors and lawyers, educators, all right in this neighborhood.” —Tommy Parker, Princeton

Laura: “I feel so lucky to live here. I am a longtime resident of this town. I moved to the Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood six years ago and feel so fortunate to have such nice neighbors who support and know each other. This is a historic place and to designate it as Princeton’s 20th historic district makes it even more special. I have become friends with so many families who have lived here for generations now and are an integral part of Princeton’s legacy.” —Laura Tignor with Hunter McKernan, both of Princeton

night will provide a glimpse into our work and its impact in Mercer County as we work tirelessly to equip immigrants with the tools to advocate for themselves and fight for change.” L i l i e n t h a l, a L A L D E F supporter since its founding i n 2 0 0 4, s a i d t h a t h e would be speaking about t h e “ b u s i n e s s s i d e” of immigration. LALDEF has focused on serving the lowincome Latino immigrant community, but Lilienthal emphasized, “We’re all in this together — blue collar, w h i t e c o l l a r, r e s e a r c h orga n i z at ions, i ndu s t r y, people who just want to keep their families together.” Noting that “the approach of this administration is one that’s never been seen before,” Lilienthal pointed out that, with the Muslim travel ban, its first target is legal immigrants based on their national origins, which “impacts Princeton and towns like Princeton in a serious way.” He continued, “Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study have a long history of attracting the most qualified individuals

from around the world to do critical work. It has become difficult for them to do their work.” Lilienthal also mentioned the disruptions to New Jersey’s high tech and pharmaceutical industries. Noting that John Witherspoon, Hugh Mercer, Alexander Hamilton, and A lber t Einstein were all immigrants, Lilienthal stated that the current problematic status of immigration policy “r e p r e s e n t s a d i f fe r e n t America, both for those fleeing and those who want to keep us at the forefront of knowledge and industry.” “Do we want to be this kind of country?” Lilienthal asked. In her invitation and appeal for financial and volunteer support, Fernandez-Kelly described “asylum seekers stuck in for-profit detention centers; immigrant children stranded in foster care ; nearly 10,000 persons dead while trying to cross the border since 1998; workers pushed into the shadows for lack of immigration reform; and neighbors seeking opportunity in Princeton a n d Tr e nton s u m m a r i ly detained and deported.” She continued, “Your gift nourishes striving newcomers whom our government is

humanity. So the question is, how do you take this technology and human experience and make them work together?” The Hilliers are co-founders and principals of Studio Hillier LLC, which is located on Witherspoon Street. Their previous firm, Hillier Architecture, was the third largest strictly architectural firm in the country, according to information from NJIT. The firm counts hospitals, corporate headquarters, universities, independent schools, arts centers, museums, and residences among its projects around the world. NJIT’s College of Architecture and Design was established as the New Jersey School of Architecture in 1973, in response to an AIA National Advisory Committee recommendation to build a public school of architecture in Newark, and with approval from the New Jersey State Board of Higher Education. The college was granted accreditation in 1978 and has since expanded its academic and research offerings with undergraduate degree programs in architecture, interior design,

digital design, and industrial design, and graduate-level programs in architecture and infrastructure planning. NJIT awarded J. Robert Hillier an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters in 2017. According to the school’s President Joel S. Bloom,“The Hilliers are icons in the world of architecture, and we are incredibly proud to have this school carr y their name. Their involvement with and support of NJIT have been extensive and incredibly valuable over the course of many years, and this gift will have a transformative effect on our students, faculty, and research within the areas of architecture and design.” Barbara Hillier, who has received several honors for her architectural work including numerous AIA (American Institute of Architects) awards, said of the naming, “I think the leadership at NJIT is very special. They have been looking for ways to enhance the programs they have, not just in architecture, but in other disciplines as well. And they really embrace all of their students and provide them with a very strong education from which to launch their careers.” —Anne Levin

forward my research as a part of this exceptional community of scholars,” Nelson stated. Her groundbreaking work brings together several research traditions: political sociology; racial and ethnic studies; the sociology of science, knowledge, and technology; medical sociology; and social and cultural theory. She applies qualitative methodology — principally ethnography, historiography, and ethical inquiry — to the study of how conceptualizations of human difference shape lived experience, social relations, and life chances. Her two major books are Body and Soul: The Black Panther Party and the Fight Against Medical Discrimination (University of sMinnesota Press, 2011) and The Social Life of DNA: Race, Reparations, and Reconciliation after the Genome (Beacon Press, 2016).

The week-long Nassau Hall sit-in by Princeton Students for Title IX Reform (PIXR) ended last Wednesday, May 15, but the protesters, not satisfied with the University’s response to their demands for reform of Princeton’s sexual misconduct policies, are continuing their efforts on several fronts. The students continue to regroup in front of Nassau Hall for a short time every day to voice their ongoing concerns and to count down the days until the Reunions Weekend, when they have promised to demonstrate. They have also reached out to alumni to urge a commitment to not donate to the University. “In support of the current protests in favor of Title IX Reform, we are asking you to please join us as we pledge to NOT participate in Annual Giving to the University until our demands are met,” the letter reads. PIXR leaders announced the end of the sit-in last Wednesday, immediately following a demonstration in front of Prospect House, where Princeton University President Christopher Eisgruber was meeting with six of the protesters inside the building. It was Eisgruber’s first formal interaction with the protesters since the beginning of the sit-in, though on Friday, May 10 he authorized an external review of the University’s Title IX office. Following a meeting with the protesters on Monday, May 13, the Faculty-Student Commit tee on Sexual

Misconduct and the University Student Life Commit tee promised a timeline for further dialogue on Title IX reform, with meetings planned with students over the summer and a town hall-style event to be scheduled in the coming weeks, as well as a final report in the fall of 2019. Following last Wednesday’s meeting with representative PIXR students, Eisgruber released a statement presenting his views on how the community can best move forward in addressing students’ concerns and the issue of sexual misconduct. He emphasized the importance of working through the “University’s governance processes” in any attempts to achieve reforms. “This afternoon, I met personally with some of the concerned students and listened to their views,” wrote Eisgruber in his statement. “I appreciate their commitment to improving our campus, and I hope that it will produce constructive change.” He continued, “If policy c h a n g e s a r e to o c c u r, however, they must take place through this University’s governance processes. Those processes are designed to ensure that when Princeton reforms its rules, including its disciplinary procedures, it does so in a way that is deliberative, well-informed, fair, and open to all views and perspectives.” He further noted, “The damage done by sexual misconduct is heartbreaking. We must address these

harms through policies that are simultaneously fair, compassionate, and effective: sexual misconduct has no place at Princeton, and the University remains firmly committed to making its campus safe for all who work or study here.” The PIXR students, however, remain unpersuaded. “The protest is far from over,” says a statement on their website. “We walked out of a meeting with President Eisgruber with no promises. The administration is still not listening. We are holding you accountable, Princeton.” Describing her disappointment with the University’s response, PIXR member Jamie O’Leary, a graduating senior, claimed that Eisgruber was “committed to inaction, an extension of the attitude the administration has shown us throughout the process.” She noted that the protesters would hold a town hall meeting on their own terms in the coming week. Administrators would be invited, she said, but PIXR would be setting the agenda. A statement issued by PIXR referred to “President Eisgruber’s obstinacy on this issue” and stated, “The protesters have decided to return agency to survivors by holding their own town hall for community members to express their grievances, share their experiences, and seek ways to make the campus safer.… It is required that one agree to enter the space with the intent of truly listening to student voices.” —Donald Gilpin

developing an ordinance to convert all single-stall facilities in the municipality to all-gender restrooms, and is working with the Civil Rights Commission to increase inclusion. “I hope that every resident feels a sense of belonging,” said Mayor Lempert. “We must work together to create a communit y that is free from hate and safe for all — no matter a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. I’m looking forward to Princeton’s first Pride Parade and everything it symbolizes.”

Other community leaders also weighed in. “Princeton has been known as a welcoming community for a long time, one that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive, a community that involves and respects all its residents,” said Councilwoman L eticia Fraga. “Thanks to the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice, we can assert that it includes our LGBTQIA community.” P r i n c e to n Re c or d E xchange owner Jon Lambert noted, “Princeton Record Exchange has always tried to welcome all who share our passion for music. We are proud to co-sponsor this

event with hope that it will help spread this spirit of inclusiveness everywhere.” Artist/activist Andre Veloux added, “So happy to see the leadership of the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice is bringing the long overdue Pride celebrations to Princeton.” Noting the significance of the concurrence of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising and the first Princeton Pride parade, SedaSchreiber stated, “In honor of these concurrent events we will sashay and strut in the delight of how far we have come, as much as we will march in solidarity of

far mers t han any ot her county in New Jersey or New York,” Fay said. After several years involved in preservation efforts in Montgomery and the Millstone Valley Coalition, Fay “fell into” making the documentary Farming in New Jersey’s Millstone Valley: Past and Present. The film premiered at the Princeton Garden Theatre last year, to a sold-out crowd. Encouraged by the positive reception, Fay is continuing his efforts to promote central New Jersey’s leading farmers, restaurateurs, beverage -ma kers, and businesses with a new website, discovercentralnj. com. Among the local businesses featured on the site are Terhune Orchards, the Momo Restaurant Group, Brick Farm Market and Tavern, and Chauncey Hotel and Conference Center. “My hope is that this will become an important driver in the interest people are taking in what we have to offer,” Fay said. “I want to create a bigger market for what we have.” —Anne Levin

The QuickChek New Jersey Festival of Ballooning in Association with PNC Bank has announced that an 11-story tall flying lighthouse will be the signature special shaped balloon for this year’s festival. The three-day festival, the largest summertime hot air balloon and music festival in North America, is July 2628, taking off from Solberg Airport in Readington. Tickets are on sale at all 159 QuickChek market locations throughout New Jersey, New York’s Hudson Valley and Long Island. Complete with sea gulls near the “light” at the top, this special shaped hot air balloon is 115 feet tall, 53 feet wide at the bottom and weighs 440 pounds. “People love and adore lighthouses, it’s a universal sign of security and like America, it’s always there to protect,” said hot air balloon pilot Barry DiLibero of Chester Springs, Pa., who built the 11-story tall red, white, and blue balloon in 2006. “I had always wanted one and people just feel good about them. We’re looking forward to providing that warm feeling and experience for everyone at the festival.” T h e B e ach B oys, w ho helped launch the Festival’s

live concert series, head this year’s music lineup, which features country-pop stars The Band Perry, ABBA The Concert, and Grammy Award winning children’s recording artist Dan Zanes + Claudia Eliaza. The QuickChek Flighthouse will be one of up to 100 sport and special shaped hot air balloons taking flight twice each day over the Hunterdon County countryside. New special shaped hot air balloons include a pair of 86-foot-tall cop and robber balloons; a 100-foot-tall High Kitty Japanese cat of good fortune; and a 98-foot-tall Kermie The Frog.

Returning favorite balloons include the 5-story-tall PNC American Flag, the 92-foot-tall Simba the Lion, a 110-foot-tall panda from Unique Photo, a 105-foot-tall white bear from Bimbo Bakeries USA, and the 80-foot-tall Pepsi football. Festival admission includes access to the daily mass hot air balloon ascensions; lawn seating for concerts, a fireworks display, a nighttime hot air balloon glow, Flippenout extreme trampoline show, age-appropriate children’s entertainment and activities, exciting interactive exhibits and hundreds of crafters and food vendors.

in its future, Fay believes. There is a lot more farmland available than most people realize. Fay’s mission is to create a bigger market for those who farm and the restaurants that patronize them. “I spent 30 years doing opinion research, market research, and consulting,” Fay said. “Doing all that, I learned about the power of storytelling. For most of these farms and beverage makers and restaurants, part of what makes them so valuable is the story behind them. You go to Terhune Orchards because you know some of their story. People want that experience, that connection with a family, a farm, and healthy food. And Updike Farm, too, has a wonderful story to tell.” Among the panelists at the Updike Farm event were Pam Mount of Terhune; along with Stephanie Harris of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey; Tessa Lowinski Desmond, who teaches at Princeton University and has a farm in Hopewell Township; and Maia Saito, of the Cherry Valley Cooperative. “They talked about what their passions are in agriculture, and how things have changed over the years,” said Fay. The most recent survey released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture lists 40 percent more women r unning farms. Fay said the figure is partly due to a changed methodology that allows farms to list more than one owner. Nevertheless, there are more women running farms than in the recent past. “Hunterdon County has more women

New Jersey’s Agricultural History Could Be a Tourism Magnet

At the Historical Society of Princeton’s Updike Farmstead last Sunday, a garden designed to interpret the state’s agricultural history was officially opened to the public. As part of the festivities, there was a screening of the film Farming in New Jersey’s Millstone Valley: Past and Present, and a panel discussion on the growing number of women involved in farming across the state. For Brad Fay, who made the documentary and assembled t he panel, last Sunday’s event was a step toward recognition of New Jersey’s importance in the area of “agritourism.” “As a marketing person, I have become aware of how great a need there is to tell our agricultural story better,” said Fay, a Griggstown resident who heads t he marketing and consulting firm Stepping Stone Strategies. “New York state has invested highly in promoting its Finger Lakes region and the Hudson Valley, for New Yorkers looking for a weekend getaway in the country. We have beautiful places that are closer to the city, and we need to market them.” While New Jersey spends some $9 million a year on tourism marketing, most of which is aimed at the Jersey Shore and the Meadowlands, New York puts $15 million “just into agritourism,” Fay said. “We are just sort of unilaterally disarming ourselves. We need to seriously promote this part of our identity.” Agriculture plays a significant role not just in New Jersey’s history, but also

Taste Trenton Returns For Restaurant Crawl

Taste Trenton, the Capital City’s Restaurant Crawl, returns for its fourth season featuring more than 30 local restaurants Friday-Sunday, June 7-9. Food adventurers wearing special wristbands will be able to buy reduced-price dishes at restaurants across Trenton. The multi-cultural array of cuisine options includes Costa Rican, Venezuelan, Dominican, and Guatemalan as well restaurants featuring BBQ, classic African American fare, and choices with a New Orleans flair. New Jersey Weedman’s Joint will be showcasing the skills of its new chef, Dante Foggy, a winner of Food Network’s Chopped series. Restaurant registration continues through May 25. Taste Trenton began in 2015 as a project of the Trenton Council of Civic Associations (TCCA) as an effort to reintroduce Trenton’s restaurant scene to the residents of Trenton and surrounding communities after several well-known restaurants in the Chambersburg Restaurant District closed or relocated to the suburbs. “We were hearing two consistent stories,” said Bernard McMullan, the coordinator of Taste Trenton. “First, people told us that ‘All the restaurants in Chambersburg were closed.’ Second, many people proclaimed that

knew that both statements were inaccurate. Yes, restaurants had closed. But most people didn’t realize that new restaurants had opened up within a short time in the same buildings and were offering really exciting food options. Our goal is to introduce these new restaurants to guests in a low-cost, easy manner.” Participants can purchase a wristband from Taste Trenton ($7 online through June 6 at tastetrenton.com or during the weekend for $10). Wristbands are valid for the entire weekend. Come to ArtWorks (19 Everett Alley) to pick up the wristband and a passport/guidebook that lists each participating restaurant, notes the specials being offered, and provides a map showing each location. The tour is self-guided. Participants select which restaurants they want to visit, how long they want to stay, and which of the specials they want to try. On Saturday only, there will be free buses transporting guests from Artworks to restaurants in the Chambersburg/South Broad Street area. Since its launch in 2015 as a one-day event focused on 12 restaurants in Chambersburg, Taste Trenton has expanded to an entire weekend promoting dozens of restaurants throughout the city. Each event has attracted more and more guests, from 150 participants in the first year to 250 and 325 guests in 2016 and 2017, respectively. In 2019, organizers are hoping that 500 guests will spend time in Trenton trying out one or more of the participating restaurants. 1911 Smokehouse Co owner, Reggie Hallett, is a strong supporter of Taste Trenton. “When we were invited to join in the second year, we jumped at the opportunity,” he said. “I can confidently point to 15 to 20 of our regular customers who first came to the Smokehouse for that event, and they haven’t stopped coming.” This year’s Taste Trenton coincides, on Saturday, June 8, with the Old Mill Hill Society’s Annual Garden Tour, which also uses Artworks as its starting point.

Princeton Battlefield Society Honors Travers

The Princeton Battlefield Society (PBS) will present its 2019 Mercer Oak Award to Peter J. Travers at a Nassau Inn reception on Thursday, June 13, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Jerry Hurwitz, president of the Society, noted that Travers “stands out as an outstanding example of the spirit of this award and of our American heritage.” “The Mercer Oak stands today at the Battlefield as a symbol of the pivotal victory won by American soldiers on January 3, 1777. This victory at Princeton ended the ‘ten crucial days’ of 1776-77, during which the dynamics of the American War of Independence were fundamentally altered in favor of

Independence,” continued Hurwitz. “Mr. Travers has been a true friend of American history. His appreciation of the Princeton Battlefield ground and his steadfast support of the PBS have strengthened our mission to preserve, protect, and promote the spirit of the American Revolution and the crucial events at Princeton.” Travers, a resident of Hopewell, is the managing member of Chase Field LLC, Princeton. Prior to founding the firm in 1992, he worked as an investment banker at Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Paine Webber Capital Markets, and practiced securities law at Sullivan & Cromwell in New York. Travers is chairman of the board of trustees of the National Review Institute. He was an international

fellow at the Columbia School of International Affairs, a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and founded the foreign policy institute East-West Round Table in 1983. He received JD and MBA degrees from Columbia University in 1981. He is a member of the vestry of All Saints’ Church, where he has delivered five annual lectures on the topic of Abraham Lincoln and his faith. He has also completed three 500-mile bicycle rides to support the mission of Anchor House in Trenton and nine marathons. Past Mercer Oak Award recipients include longtime PBS President Jerry Hurwitz (2017) and Raoul Momo (2018) of the Terra Momo Restaurant Group. At Travers’ request, the funds raised at this year’s

Hun School students have embarked on learning experiences that are taking them out of the classroom for three weeks this spring and into the origin of an event, problem, or theory. Topics and venues in Hun’s new NextTerm program include women and politics in Washington, D.C., social justice in Selma and Memphis, government instability and global forces in Ghana, immigration in Arizona and Mexico, combating food insecurity in New Jersey, civil rights in France, and many more. There are 19 NextTerm courses led by teacher teams and incorporating interdisciplinary skill and content investigation. “Next Term is immersive like a semester abroad program, but it is also practical and focused, like an internship,” said program co-director Bill Esher. “Consider a hands-on internship where the intern is promoted to project leader immediately after orientation. We gave ourselves the permission to imagine the best possible way to learn and then we created it.” Mandatory for all underclassmen, grades 9-11, the program will culminate in projects produced by students teams, with each team presenting to a panel of experts during an end-of-term expo in June.

PDS Breaks Ground for New Athletic Center In a ceremony on Wednesday, May 15, Princeton Day School students, faculty, staff, and special guests celebrated groundbreaking to construct the School’s new athletic and community center.

Construction on the 35,000-square-foot, LEED-certified athletics and squash center will begin on June 10 with planned completion in the fall of 2020.

Planning Board Colleague Supports Tim Quinn for Council

To the Editor: My friend and longtime colleague on the Planning Board, Tim Quinn, is running for a new term on the Princeton Council. He richly deserves to be re-elected. Many in the town are aware of Tim’s years of public service, first in and for the schools; secondly on the Planning Board; and thirdly on both the Planning Board and the municipal Council. Over the years in these roles, he has accumulated a deep understanding of the breadth of issues that face the residents of Princeton. My best knowledge of him comes from his involvement in the sometimes long and sometimes challenging — but always interesting — Planning Board meetings. He always shows up; he has always done his homework and thought seriously about applications; he listens; and when he speaks his calm, quiet voice is very clearly heard. Outside of the public sessions, he has worked with Board members and residents on master plan proposals and zoning initiatives, which have given him a context in which to consider the significant decisions to be made by Council. Some people lead with strident voices. Others lead more gently, depending on the depth of their knowledge to analyze and persuade. To me, this describes Tim, whose knowledge of our town is wide and valuable to the rest of us. We can depend on his intelligent decision-making. I trust and admire him and urge you all to vote for Tim Quinn in the June 4 Democratic primary. GAIL ULLMAN Maple Street

Letter to Mayor Lempert and Council From Numerous Concerned Residents

To Mayor Lempert and Members of Council: For months we have endured the intolerable and dangerous traffic congestion at the intersections of Cherry Hill, Mt. Lucas, Terhune, and Valley Roads. The closure of Terhune Road at Route 206 and the relocation and significant expansion of the fueling station have made already bad traffic conditions far worse. Now that the town Council has relinquished the option of turning left onto Route 206 from Terhune, it is imperative that the town achieve a safe left turn from Valley Road onto Route 206. This would relieve some of the congestion at the intersection of Cherry Hill and Route 206 and also on the section of Mt. Lucas Road leading up to Cherry Hill. We are pleased that the town Council has voted to remove the intrusive canopy. However, the refusal to consider relocating the fueling station has galvanized residents. There are alternative sites for the fueling station and the traffic safety issues are sufficiently serious for us to urgently request that the town relocate it. Primarily, we are concerned about the many pedestrians and bicyclists who traverse these intersections to get to school, work, and play — Community Park School, the town pool, the playing fields and tennis courts, and the center of town. Many of these pedestrians are children. What’s more, traffic safety is worsened by the vehicles turning left across traffic on Mt. Lucas Road to enter the fueling station at all hours. At the neighborhood meeting on April 11, the town offered to restrict the use of the fueling station

during the morning rush hour (8-8:30 a.m.). The town also assured neighbors that the direction of entry and exit would correspond to the direction of Mount Lucas and require no traffic-stopping left turns. However, these commitments are not being enforced — police cars, school vehicles, and a municipal dump truck have all been seen fueling during the morning rush and facing the wrong direction. In addition to safety and traffic concerns, neighbors living in the area, and those who must drive, bike, or walk through the area, find it incomprehensible that the town did not disclose its plans before construction and re-routing began. We are shocked that the township would allow this unsightly structure to be placed at one of the gateways to our town — let alone adjacent to their homes. We also find the night-time lighting to be invasive. We urge that the town move the fueling station to a location that has fewer safety, traffic, and aesthetic problems. Surely the town’s procedures are not so rigid as to preclude listening and responding to the views of the many impacted citizens. Sincerely yours, DAYLE GILLESPIE Terhune Road EDWARD BARING & KATJA GUENTHER Laurel Road JONATHAN & CARRIE BESLER Dempsey Avenue LINDA BOSNIAK & ANDREW BUSH Turner Court CAROLYN LEEUWENBURGH & FRANKLIN PIERCE Jefferson Rd CLAUDIA GUZMAN & EDUARDO LOPEZ Valley Road Additional signers of this letter include Princeton residents of more than 60 households.

Mayor Lempert Responds to Letter On Congestion, Fueling Station

To the Editor: The municipality appreciates and understands the concerns raised by neighbors. We have taken a number of steps to help mitigate these concerns including changing the scheduling so municipal and other agency vehicles do not fuel during the morning rush. There have been some violators of this policy, but we have taken steps to rectify the situation and do not expect it to happen again. In terms of the vehicles entering the facility from the wrong side, this is unavoidable as some vehicles have fuel tanks on the passenger side. The municipality has investigated a number of alternative sites for the fueling station, however none were suitable. The fueling station is shared by the municipality and school district and is used to fuel municipal vehicles, ambulances, school buses, and fire trucks. When evaluating sites, one criterion was whether the site provided enough space for these larger vehicles to maneuver. (The Harrison Street Garage and John Street Public Works site, for example, were both rejected based on lack of space.) The Shopping Center parking lot was considered, but it is privately owned, and the owner was not interested in committing to this use. The Valley Road School site was considered and rejected because the school district is in the middle of its facilities planning and the use of this site has not yet been determined. There is already a small fueling station at the Public Works site on River Road, used primarily by Sewer Operations. This site was rejected as the main fueling station because it is too remote and access to the site is often blocked by flooding

during heavy rain. Ultimately, moving the fueling station across the site to its current location was deemed the best option. The new tank is indeed larger, in order to provide adequate fuel for municipal operations during major storm events. The site is still under construction and there are plans to further screen the fueling station by enlarging the brick enclosure and by adding landscaping. Traffic issues in this area have long been challenging and complicated by the fact that Route 206 is under the jurisdiction of the state Department of Transportation. The municipality has added striping to improve traffic flow in the area. We continue to work with the DOT on additional improvements to relieve the traffic in the area. Princeton is requesting changes to the traffic signal timing to allow more green time for the Cherry Hill movements. We are strongly advocating with DOT to allow a left turn from westbound Valley Road to southbound Route 206. We are also working with DOT on further improving the Cherry Hill Road lane striping at the Cherry Hill/206 intersection. Police are reviewing pedestrian safety in the area with special attention to school children. The process for this project has been public and began with an April 2014 Memorandum of Understanding between the municipality and PFARS. The Planning Board discussed traffic impacts at its April 2015 meeting. A Valley Road design meeting was held in May 2015. Council passed resolutions supporting a signal at Valley Road at its May 19, 2015 meeting. A second MOU was approved on December 19, 2016. PFARS held a neighborhood meeting and presented to Council in September 2017. The Shade Tree Commission and Environmental Commission reviewed the plans in October and November 2017. The Site Plan Review Advisory Board and then the Zoning Board reviewed the plans in January and then February 2018. Council approved the purchase of the fuel station in March. As Princeton grows, available space becomes scarcer, and demands on our infrastructure increase. Princeton’s First Aid and Rescue Squad (PFARS) is building its new headquarters at the corner of Witherspoon and Valley, at the former Township Public Works site. Because PFARS provides essential public safety services to the community, the municipality has worked closely with the organization to ensure they have sufficient facilities. Providing support to institutions like PFARS is essential to ensuring the health and safety of our community. MAYOR LIZ LEMPERT

Noting Adam Bierman’s Perception Of Princeton’s Directions and Needs

To the Editor: Over the past few weeks I’ve had the opportunity to review and compare the positions and goals of the candidates for Princeton Council in the 2019 elections. Adam Bierman’s heartfelt and optimistic perception of Princeton’s directions and needs, and his willingness to examine the public’s questions and concerns, has, in my mind, elevated him above the other candidates. So, Adam, I am writing today to express my support for your campaign and to let you know of my intention to vote for you in the upcoming elections and to share my beliefs in the benefits that your policies and abilities will bring to Princeton with my friends and neighbors. I firmly believe that it will be truly beneficial for Princeton residents and those who work and visit here if you are elected. WALTER J. KRIEG Laurel Road

Princeton Community TV Gives Education a Chance To Be Free

To the Editor: I have a question. Is it every American’s birthright to vote? According to Socrates (translated from Greek) “Only those who had thought about issues rationally and deeply should be let near a vote.” In the mind of one of history’s greatest teachers and thinkers, mob rule threatens democratic society. Socrates knew that it would be easy for people seeking office to appeal to the mob’s desires and give easy answers to complex problems. Does any of this sound familiar? In our system of government, every citizen is entitled to vote, and education is the only weapon we have against demagoguery. However, in the state of New Jersey, education is one of the most segregated institutions. Affluence, aka District Factor Groups, determine knowledge. Inside each school district, curriculum, teachers’ knowledge, and lesson plans are held captive. Princeton Community TV gives education a chance to be free. On my show, I have the capacity to share knowledge from teachers everywhere. As an example, the moment a video about space exploration that features national experts on missions to Mars is aired, children everywhere get access to the knowledge that is otherwise confined to Princeton. I am proud to say one of my shows on space exploration featured retired NASA Chief Scientist Dr. Ellen Stofan and SETI director Dr. Seth Shosktak. If it were not for Princeton Community TV, children would not understand that there is no simple answer to complex problems like “Can man live on Mars?” To be knowledgeable, they must think about complex and conflicting ideas. In January 2017, we saw the effects of unequal education, where knowledge is held captive amongst the affluent. Please allow Princeton Community TV and myself to continue to make it possible for future generations to think about issues rationally and deeply before they step into a voting booth. AGGIE SUNG Producer, Princeton Community TV

have been here for generations can no longer remain. It will take hard work, planning, and expertise to maintain Princeton’s socioeconomic diversity. Our zoning regulations must be revised in order to for us to succeed. We need for Princeton Council to make these issues a priority and to involve the community in its decision-making processes. Princeton will shortly conclude a four-year effort to develop an affordable housing plan. Council members elected this year will have the responsibility of implementing this plan. Mia is uniquely qualified to understand and meet these challenges. Her grandmother was an early advocate for affordable housing in Princeton and Mia experienced first-hand, growing up here, the way in which housing is impacted by changes to a family’s economic status. She has observed the struggles faced by several generations of family members striving to age in place. Mia is a leader in the Princeton Progressive Action Group that has been at the forefront of advocating for missing middle housing in Princeton. Proactive planning for Princeton is the focus of Mia’s candidacy. On Council she will work to include the entire community in the process of planning for affordable housing and its implications for transportation and schools. Keeping Princeton a vibrant and inclusive community starts with ensuring that affordable, safe, and well-maintained homes are available to persons of all income levels. Mia is committed to this vision of our town and I am confident that she will work successfully to make it a reality. CAROL GOLDEN Snowden Lane

More Than 200 Guests Enjoyed Community Housing Gala

To the Editor: On May 11, Princeton Community Housing (PCH) hosted our 2019 Home Springs Eternal Gala at The Boathouse at Mercer Lake, in celebration of the work of our honorees who help make Princeton a diverse and vibrant community and in support of our mission to provide additional affordable rental homes in Princeton. I am writing on behalf of the trustees and staff of PCH to extend our sincere thanks to the Princeton community for supporting the Gala and our mission. More than 200 guests enjoyed listening to musical entertainment from Princeton’s own Sustainable Jazz and Chris Harford and The Band of Changes. Valerie Haynes, Alvin McGowen, and I proudly introduced Carol Golden, Lance Liverman, and the Borden Perlman Insurance Agency respectively, all who received service awards for their steadfast support of affordable housing to ensure that Princeton is a welcoming and inclusive community. PCH Board Chair Van Davis, and PCH Gala Co-chairs Margaret Griffin and Daniela Bonafede-Chhabra, spoke passionately about the need for additional affordable rental homes (there are

approximately 1,800 households currently on our waiting lists), the challenges in funding new affordable housing (the funds historically provided by federal and state sources are much more limited), and PCH’s plans to build 100 new affordable homes over the next five years — some of these in partnership with the Princeton Housing Authority and the municipality. “Hope Springs Eternal,” a direct quote from Alexander Pope’s work “An Essay on Man,” refers to the faith that one holds onto during trying times. The Gala reinforced the principle that affordable rental homes in Princeton, a community with abundant resources, must continue to thrive. From the stable base that our homes provide, where a household pays no more than 30 percent of its income for rent, people have hope and a greater chance to succeed. Please visit our website (www.pchhomes.org) to learn about a few of the individuals and families whose lives have improved because of the homes and opportunities provided by PCH. We would like to thank the many and generous sponsors, raffle prize donors, contributors of goods and services, and attendees for their support of the Gala and PCH.

Witherspoon Neighborhood Needs Michelle Pirone Lambros on Council

To the Editor: As a fourth generation African American Princetonian, I’m supporting Michelle Pirone Lambros for Princeton Council. She’s the only candidate with a real grasp of the challenges faced by the Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood (where her own mother grew up). Her campaign has been inclusive and sensitive to the needs of the African American community and the undocumented Latinx we call our neighbors. Michelle knows this part of town is underserved, and is campaigning on issues like mixed use zoning that encourages more small businesses, like a grocery store and a laundromat on this side of town. She sees the need for the urgent care clinic we were promised when the hospital left. As she said in her opening remarks at the debate at the Witherspoon-Jackson Neighborhood Candidate Forum, every trend that affects Princeton has a concentrated impact on the Witherspoon-Jackson neighborhood: rising property taxes, a lack of support for small business owners, and zoning restrictions that make it hard for fixed-income seniors to age in place. Michelle has everyone’s interests in mind, and the fresh ideas to make a difference. She doesn’t pay lip-service to social and economic justice. She acts on it. There’s been talk of the need for a dog park in Princeton. There’s even a candidate who says it’s one of her priorities. But before Princeton’s dogs get their own playground, Michelle will make sure that Princeton’s most vulnerable residents get the services they need. JOANNE PARKER Leigh Avenue

Now, More than Ever, Our Citizens Need a Voice

To the Editor: Who doesn’t want to save on taxes? We all do. Nevertheless, I urge Princeton Town Council to fund Princeton Community TV for 2019 and beyond. I was dismayed to read in your recent article (Town Topics, April 24, pg. one] that the Council is considering eliminating funding for this invaluable resource. PCTV, led by its dedicated executive director, George McCullough, does a phenomenal job of producing local programs, training and (perhaps most important) providing average local citizens with a “voice.” Over the years, this TV gem has welcomed female entrepreneurs, new authors, local vets, the unemployed, students, and scores of others who wish to share their knowledge or learn about TV programming. In short, it is a model of how best to educate, inform and motivate community members to make the world a better place. For a tax of less than $8 per person PER YEAR, given the attack on our media today, is this really where we want to save money? I hope not! TOBY ISRAEL, PH.D. Walnut Lane

I am supporting Mia Sacks in the June 4 primary because of her compassionate and proven commitment to this challenge to our community. Having served on Princeton’s Affordable Housing Board and as chair of Housing Initiatives of Princeton, I am acutely aware of the needs of our most vulnerable community members. Princeton’s varied neighborhoods have long provided homes and shelter to families from many backgrounds. That diversity is a major reason why so many of us were drawn to live here. The ever-increasing cost of housing means local businesses must rely on workers who endure long commutes and need a place to park all day. Increasingly, families who

DVD REVIEW

“Whatever Will Be, Will Be” — Doris Day, “Game of Thrones,” and the Power of Song

“T

here’s nothing in the world more powerful than a good story,” said Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) in Sunday’s finale of Game of Thrones. You could say the same thing about a good song. Consider how media coverage of last week’s passing of singer Doris Day (1922-2009) coincided with the online frenzy provoked by the ending of the popular HBO series based on George R.R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire. The answer to all the arguments about what should and should not have happened in episode six can be found in Day’s biggest hit, “Qué Será, Sera” (“Whatever Will Be, Will Be),” the song that drives the fate of The Man Who Knew Too Much, Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller about an assassination plot and a kidnapping. Meanwhile, a hit song from the 1970s, 10cc’s “The Things We Do for Love,” shadows the fate of Game of Thrones, both in the pilot episode and the controversial denouement. The title of another Doris Day hit, “Secret Love,” describes what’s revealed to Bran Stark after he climbs the castle tower at King’s Landing and sees Jaime Lannister and his twin sister Cersei having sex. Caught in the act, Jaime pushes the boy off the ledge, treating the move lightly, even giving it a punchline, “The things I do for love.” For viewers who remember the 10cc song, it’s as good as a wink and a nudge across the centuries, like Hamlet quoting “A Hard Day’s Night” on the walls of Elsinore, or Milton’s Satan singing a line from “Satisfaction.” Besides crippling Bran and paving the way for the three-eyed raven who alone knows “what will be, will be” in Westeros, Jaime has pronounced his own fate, the sentence he hears again as he stands before the prophet in the final season. “The things I do for love” sends him back to his sister and his doom. As for everyone fighting over the ending of Game of Thrones, remember Bran warned you, “it is written,” a foregone conclusion, so let’s listen to the song and “Agree to disagree but disagree to part/When after

all it’s just a compromise of/The things we do for love.” Explaining Doris Day A year before he died, the novelist John Updike (1932-2009) admitted that he was “always looking for insights into the real Doris Day because I’m stuck with this infatuation and need to explain it to myself.” His search inspired a poem, “Her Coy Lover Sings Out” that begins, “Doris, ever since 1945,/when I was all of thirteen and you a mere twenty-one,/and ‘Sentimental Journey’ came winging/out of the juke box at the sweet shop,/your voice piercing me like a silver arrow,/I knew you were sexy.” In the last stanza, after celebrating his belief in her enduring sexiness, he asks “Give me space to get over the idea of you--/ the thrilling silver voice, the gigantic silver screen.” I came to Doris Day, or she came to me, a decade later in unsexy, feelgood apple-pie-American movies like By the Light of the Silvery Moon and On Moonlight Bay. The fact that I outgrew my infatuation before I graduated from high school doesn’t explain what I felt when I heard the news of her death last week. She was my adolescent ideal, the girl-nextdoor of my dreams, which were “as pure as the driven snow” I imagined when she sang “Winter Wonderland.” I refused to believe the rumors Updike seems to intuit about her sexual hijinks with members of the Les Brown’s Band and Mickey Mantle. Listening now to once irresistible songs like “It’s Magic,” “I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm,” and “My One and Only Love,” where she seems to touch something sad and sweet and unknowable, I feel like a tourist to my own youth.

Calamity Jane Asked to name her “all-time favorite film” in a 97th birthday interview with the Hollywood Reporter the month before she died, Day picked Calamity Jane (1953): “I was such a tomboy growing up and she was such a fun character to play.” She also mentions liking the music, especially “Secret Love” — “such a beautiful song.” As I watch Day as Calamity Jane performing the incredibly nimble and energetic Deadwood Stage number, leaping onto and sliding along the bar in the Golden Garter, cute as a button and clean as a whistle, I’m thinking of Doris Mary Kappelhoff, the tomboy from Cincinnati who dreamed of being a dancer; whose legs were broken in a car wreck; who spent a year in recovery listening to and learning from singers like Ella Fitzgerald, and who, according to the legend, had to be carried up the stairs to her singing lessons. Seeing those scenes now, I can’t help comparing her spirited romping with the mad-genius energy of Betty Hutton’s Annie Oakley belting out “I Can Do Anything Better Than You Can.” But then both Day and Hutton pale next to the swaggering brawling foulmouthed magnificence of Robin Weigert’s Calamity Jane in Deadwood, which HBO has revived as a full-lentgh film just in time to help fill the void left by Game of Thrones. A Scream and a Song Before he was known as a leader of the New Wave, Jean-Luc Godard reviewed The Man Who Knew Too Much and found that “this film by a supposedly misog ynous director” has “feminine intuition” as “its sole mainspring.” After

noting that the “Qué Será, Sera” theme is sounded throughout the film, he finds the ultimate moral to be “God helps those who help themselves.” And in the end, it’s Day’s character, a temporarily retired singer, who saves the ambassador of an unknown country from an assassin’s bullet by screaming so loudly that she disrupts a concert at the Albert Hall. Energized by fear, her performer’s instincts and sense of timing guide her to the exact moment when the weapon of her voice startles the assassin enough to make him misfire. Invited by the grateful ambassador to perform at the embassy where her son is being held captive by the conspirators, she sings the bedtime song they were singing together the night before he was kidnapped. Alone at the piano (as shown), she sings as loudly as she can, putting all her hope and love into the effort, transcending the “what will be, will be” message even as she sings the song, her voice finding its way up three flights of stairs to the room where the boy is being held. At this point, says Hitchcock critic Robin Wood, “Middle-aged academics are not supposed to admit that they burst into tears every time Doris Day begins ‘Qué Será, Sera,’ but in my case it’s a fact.” oris Day may not have been a Game of Thrones fan, but whatever the lifelong animal rights activist might have thought of the show’s wonders and horrors, she’d have found it hard to resist the dire wolves, especially the ever-faithful Ghost. And given the passion with which she played a woman challenging the machinations of fate, I think her favorite character would have been Arya Stark, who did what she had do, regardless of the “will be, will be” conclusions of her brother Bran. She saved the world, nothing less. And in The Man Who Knew Too Much, according to critic Gary Giddins,” it is Day who saves the day, twice.” —Stuart Mitchner

1690 Meets 2019 in New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Concert of Concerti

T

he orchestral concerto was a musical development of the Baroque era which composers often took to the next level by composing for two or more solo instruments and orchestra. New Jersey Symphony Orchestra brought Johann Sebastian Bach’s double concerto for two violins into the 21st century this past weekend by pairing it with a contemporary work for orchestra, violin, and electric guitar — definitely not a Baroque instrument. Bracketing Friday night’s concert at Richardson Auditorium with 19th-century opera overtures, NJSO conductor Xian Zhang led the ensemble and soloists through the music of Baroque legend Bach and 21st-century musical inventor and Princeton University professor Steven Mackey. An innovator in 19th-century German opera, Carl Maria von Weber was overshadowed by countryman Ludwig van Beethoven, as well as the explosion of Italian opera in the 1800s. Although his complete operas have not always been popular, almost all of Weber’s opera overtures have entered the orchestral repertory as stand-alone works. NJSO began Friday night’s concert with Weber’s 1826 “Overture” to Oberon, an opera which drew its inspiration from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Weber’s music often featured horn, and this “Overture” was no exception. The brass sections of the NJSO, and particularly French horn soloist Will de Vos, provided a solid foundation to scampering winds and strings. Zhang kept a light touch to the musical atmosphere, emphasizing the sprightly themes. A gracefully conducted middle section featured a poignant clarinet solo by Karl Herman while the nimbleness of the fairy themes was maintained in the string playing. There was a great deal of theatricality in this performance, with a bit of “puckish” humor and sauciness to the music. NJSO concertmaster Eric Wyrick, one of the two soloists in Steven Mackey’s Four Iconoclastic Episodes for Solo Violin, Electric Guitar, and String Orchestra, experienced every musician’s worst nightmare Friday night when he opened his violin case at Richardson Auditorium and found it empty — he had left his instrument at home. Somehow, a 1690 Stradivarius was located in Princeton (although how Wyrick and Xian Zhang knew where to find this treasure may remain their secret). Wyrick’s own violin eventually arrived at the hall, giving the soloist an enviable choice of premium instruments.

Mackey, known for exploring multiple musical genres in his compositions, cast himself as electric guitar soloist, a role with which he was clearly comfortable. As Mackey explained to the audience, each of the four Iconoclastic Episodes combined elements of varied musical styles, including jazz/rock/fusion, African popular music, and Chicago blues. Mackey also had the choice of two separate electric guitars tuned individually to create different harmonics and intonation. Accompanied by a small ensemble of strings, Wyrick and Mackey demonstrated how the 17th and 21st centuries are not that dissimilar for virtuoso instrumental capabilities. Where Wyrick’s playing ranged from lyrical melodic lines to fast-moving passages, Mackey found variety in instrumental colors and timbres from the electric guitar, aided by foot pedals electronically changing or adding musical effects. When the two soloists played in unison, the two instruments had a remarkably similar sonority. As conductor, Zhang brought out a jazz club style from the lower strings in the opening “Like an Animal” Episode, and well controlled the driving rhythms and rich orchestration throughout the four-movement work. ather than showcase the double concerto genre chronologically, NJSO presented the more contemporary work first, then played a work which has stood the test of time for centuries. Bach’s Concerto for Two Violins in D Minor was in a three-movement format standard for the time it was written and featured two violin soloists in musical dialog with each other and the accompanying orchestra. Violinist Wyrick was joined by violinist Annelle K. Gregory, a competition winner who has extensively recorded Romantic-era Russian violin repertory. Throughout the Bach double concerto, both soloists were well able to execute the quickly-moving lines and sequential rhythms, often trading roles as musical questioner or answerer. A steady underpinning from the cello, double bass, and harpsichord continuo allowed the music almost to play itself. Particularly in the second movement largo, Zhang built musical tension well, creating Romantic drama out of Baroque music. Bach’s music asks a great deal of soloists, and both Wyrick and Gregory were well up to the task, as the New Jersey Symphony showed that maybe the 18th and 21st centuries are not so far apart after all. —Nancy Plum

The Central Jersey Choral Society will be explore the choral work of Haydn and Beethoven, including Haydn’s Missa Cellensis (Mariazeller Mass) in C and Beethoven’s Mass in C in concert on Saturday, June 8 at 7 p.m., at the Princeton Meadow Event Center in West Windsor. The evening will be an opportunity to explore the works of these two composers, whose relationship as teacher and student made them much more than just musical contemporaries. Guided by the Central Jersey Choral Society and Artistic Director Christopher Loeffler, the audience will learn about their lives and music and explore the similarities and differences in their respective compositions. “Beethoven studied with Haydn in Vienna as early as 1792, but their contact with each other was limited by Haydn’s extensive performance schedule in London,” said Loeffler. “This created the tension that no doubt fostered Beethoven’s occasional declarations that he ‘learned nothing from Haydn.’ Nonetheless, Beethoven’s respect for Haydn became more pronounced in 1807 when he was approached by Prince Nicholaus Esterhazy to compose a Mass. Prince Nicholaus was the primary patron of Haydn, who had taken ill earlier that year.” The Central Jersey Choral Society is Mercer County’s second oldest arts group. It was formed in 1949 at the request of the Trenton Junior Chamber of Commerce as the Trenton Community Chorus, and later became the Mercer County Chorus and the Greater Trenton Choral Society. In 2009, was renamed the Central Jersey Choral Society. The organization includes both professionally educated and trained vocalists, and individuals with a love of singing.

“Art of Time” Exhibit At Hamilton Jewelers

“RELATIONSHIP”: This painting by Ting Ting Hsu is featured in “Waves and Ripples,” on exhibit June 1-29 at the Arts Council of Princeton. The show is a collaboration between local artists Hsu and Livia Mosanu. An Artist Talk is June 1 at 2:30 p.m., followed by an Opening Reception from 3 to 5 p.m.

“Waves and Ripples” at Princeton Arts Council

On view June 1-29 at the Arts Council of Princeton, “Waves and Ripples” is a collaboration between two local painters, Ting Ting Hsu and Livia Mosanu, who share many similar life experiences. These experiences are reflected in the artists’ work, their interaction with the environment, and their community. An Artist Talk is June 1 at 2:30 p.m., followed by an Opening Reception from 3 to 5 p.m. According to the artists, “this project is a celebration of water and a metaphor for life and human emotions. Water is tumultuous, mysterious, and beautiful. Just like life, it comes in big unexpected waves and gentle calming ripples. We seek to capture these qualities on canvas and invite our viewers to take a moment and reflect on our connection with this vital natural resource. The exhibition also aims to foster a dialog regarding water as the quintessential component of life.” Ting Ting Hsu utilizes her paintings to explore her surroundings and to find meaning in each subject’s own existence in the world. Often portraying the beauty that is commonly overlooked in daily objects and sceneries around her, she is able to capture dramatic emotions from the simplicity in her subjects. She takes the beauty in those briefest moments and puts them down on canvas to preserve the emotions of that moment forever. Her work has been shown at art shows throughout New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and California. Her painting has won Best Show Award at the 2017 GSWS Members Exhibition and a 2015-2016 NYAA Academy Scholar Award. She earned her MFA from the New York Academy of Art. She is also committed to provide opportunities and nurture creativity for young people through her

York Fine Arts in Bridgewater and Princeton. Livia Mosanu is currently working on a series of large scale oil paintings in which she explores the connection between us and our surrounding bodies of water, in particular the Atlantic Ocean. Her work is inspired by unusual and meaningful rhythms that she finds in the water as well as her artistic imagination. These designs or compositions are meant to engage the viewers on a deeper level and allude to the mystery of the water and to the mystery of life itself. A recent MFA graduate from the New York Academy of Art, she is influenced by contemporary artists such as April Gornik and Gerhard Richter as well as the Romantic artists of the 1800s. Her works are on exhibit in New York City and New Jersey and in many private collections worldwide. She is a finalist in the 8th International Painting Annual published by Manifest Gallery, and a recipient of grant awards from the New York Academy of Art and the Art Students League. A native of Bucharest, Romania, she resides in Princeton. The Arts Council of Princeton is located at 102 Witherspoon Street.

Arts Ed NJ Receives Art Works Grant

National Endowment for the Arts Acting Chairman Mary Anne Carter has approved more than $80 million in grants as part of the Arts Endowment’s second major funding announcement for fiscal year 2019. Included in this announcement is an Art Works grant of $98,000 to Arts Ed NJ for expansion of the Arts Ed Now public action campaign. Art Works is the Arts Endowment’s principal grantmaking program. The agency received 1,592 Art Works applications for

this round of grantmaking, and will award 977 grants in this category. “These awards, reaching every corner of the United States, are a testament to the artistic richness and diversity in our country,” said Carter. “Organizations such as Arts Ed NJ are giving people in their community the opportunity to learn, create, and be inspired.” “This NEA grant serves as recognition of the important work of both Arts Ed NJ and the Arts Ed Now campaign and will serve as a boost to our efforts to expand arts participation in all of our schools across New Jersey,” stated Bob Morrison, director of Arts Ed NJ.

Hamilton Jewelers, Princeton Palm Beach, celebrates the arts in Princeton with “The Art of Time” exhibition on Saturday, June 1 as part of its 20th annual Watch Fair weekend event. The day will showcase over 25 Princeton area artists with works displayed in front of Hamilton’s Princeton location at 92 Nassau Street. It will benefit the Arts Council of Princeton (ACP). “The exhibit’s guidelines were broad, which I found to be compelling,” says Jacqui Alexander, one of the featured artists. “What the concept of ‘time’ means to me, or looks like to me might be entirely different than another artist’s, so it allows for broad interpretations and a range of responses in a variety of mediums.” The participating artists include Jacqui Alexander (Pennington), Peter Arrias (San Clemente, Calif.), Emily Gilman Beezley (Glen Rock), Jerry Cable (Stockton), Ioana Cretu (Freehold), Steph Martel Giberson (Ocean), Chris Harford (Princeton), Katie Heinzer (Dayton, Ohio), Robert Hummel (Plainsboro), Lenora Kandiner (Princeton Junction), Russell Marks (Princeton), Shamael Munir (Glasgow, Scotland), A.J. Pandian (East Windsor), Kim Piotrowski (Riverton), Gabriella Pollner (Princeton), Ellie M. Randolph (Virginia Beach, Va.), Andrew Redd (Princeton), Lori Sanft (Marlboro), Robert Scifo (Keansburg), Christine Seo (Columbus), Jason Sisino (Asbury

Park), Beni Snow (Princeton), Rebecca Swan (Hamilton), Sarah Tropio (Philadelphia, Pa.), Christopher Wilson (Princeton), and Noah Zarur (Princeton). Robert Hummel, who is well-known for his paintings of scenes in and around Princeton, found his inspiration for “The Art of Time” exhibition in the clock at Nassau Hall on the Princeton University campus. His past works, include paintings of Hamilton Jewelers’ classic Tudor building on the corner of Nassau and Witherspoon Streets. “The Art of Time” exhibition will also offer limited edition fine art quality prints and T-shirts by Princeton resident and artist Linda Zacks, from Exhibit No. 9 Gallery + Studio for Contemporary Art. Zacks’ work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and pub-

lications worldwide, and has had limited edition books in the MoMa Design Store and The International Center of Photography. “The Arts Council of Princeton thanks Hamilton Jewelers for supporting the arts by showcasing the work of local artists during Princeton University’s graduation weekend,” said ACP Executive Director Jim Levine. “Filling the streets of Princeton with local art during this busy time raises awareness of the Arts Council’s mission of building community through the arts.” The 20th annual Watch Fair weekend event May 31 and June 1 at Hamilton Jewelers also features over 1,000 watches from the world’s finest brands, face painting, and more. For more information, call (609) 683-4200 or visit www.hamiltonjewelers.com.

“IDLI, SAMBAR AND CHUTNEY”: This painting by Sarasvathy TK is part of the West Windsor Arts Council’s “Cultural Heritage Exhibition,” on display at the West Windsor Arts Center through July 12. The show, featuring the work of 30 artists, seeks to examine the expression of cultural heritage through art. An Opening Reception is Sunday, June 9 from 4 to 6 p.m.

“Cultural Heritage Exhibition” at WWAC

Running through July 12, the West Windsor Arts Council presents 30 artists in “Cultural Heritage Exhibition.” This show seeks to examine the expression of cultural heritage through art. Whether it is the food, textiles, festivals, or family traditions, the art demonstrates how these experiences can be shared through visual art. An Opening Reception with the artists will be held Sunday, June 9, from 4 to 6 p.m. Artists will be on hand at the opening to discuss their work. The jurors for the show are Maria Naumik and Bethay Wildrich, both active in Middlesex County’s arts community. The artwork on display depicts the how random the human experience can be: a merging of voices from childhood, religion, gender, values, and the path of each individual. Many of the works examine daily life, including such items as food, family gatherings, and the home as seen in Sarasvathy TK’s Idli, Sambar and Chutney; Ilene Dube’s Dying to Eat; Robert Lowe’s The Porch; and Judith Caccavale’s Step Out. Other artists choose to work with traditions from their past as seen in Jennifer Yuan’s Plum Blossom in the Morning; Carlo Fiorenti’s Ginevra Plays Vitruviola; and Minidha Arvindakshan’s Madhubani; which look to literature, mu-

sic, painting style, color, and motifs of their heritage. Still other artists in the show represented the decay of material items due to recent weather events as in Martin Graifer’s After the Flood. Artists featured in the show are Zakia Ahmed (Princeton Junction), Minidha Arvindakshan (Princeton Junction), Gaganpreet Bathla (West Windsor), Judith Caccavale ( Dayton), Dr. Thomas A. Chiola (Trenton), Disha Dua (West Windsor), Ilene Dube (Princeton Junction), Carlo Fiorentini (Princeton), Carla Graifer (Monroe Township), Mar t in Graifer ( Monroe Township), Margaret Kalvar Bushnell (Princeton Junction), Beverly Keese-Kelley (Trenton), Eleni Z.

“BRAVO! Listen Up!” Student Exhibition

Princeton Symphony Orchestra’s “BRAVO! Listen Up!” exhibition featuring middle school student artwork and writing created in response to composer Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) is on display at the Arts Council of Princeton (ACP) through Sunday, June 2. The students attended a creativity workshop led by ACP instructor Susan Hoenig and the March 23 performance of Mazzoli’s work by the orchestra under the direction of Edward T. Cone Music Director Rossen Milanov. At the workshop, Hoenig highlighted well-known visual artists who created works in response to music, and guided the students in their artistic reflections. Milanov provided background on Mazzoli and her music, and led the students through a handson rhythm exercise. Over the course of several weeks, the students gave form to their own creative ideas in writing and visual art. Twenty-five students from seven middle schools make up this season’s “Listen Up!” artists and writers: The Cambridge School: David Samuel, Mia Jundef, and Ellie Lamond; The Hun School of Princeton: Helena Shore and Braeden McConkey; John Witherspoon Middle School: Lucy Kreipke, Tatiana Laks, Keitaku Iwata,

Julie Liu, Sophia Song, William Phillips, Shelly Zhang, and Pippi White; Montgomery Upper Middle School: Aiden Blanos, Pujita Kalinadhabhotla, and Eliana Vair; Ranney School: Bella Santulli, Christina Aziz, Madeleine Carpenter, and Crosby Collins; St. Paul School of Princeton: Angelina Piazza, Jacob Trupin, and Vivian Teeley; and Stuart Country Day School of the Sacred Heart: Nana Larbi and Emma Tian. Now in its 12th year, “Listen Up!” is an art response program which encourages creativity through active listening. To date, it has engaged over 300 students. Online galleries featuring previous years’ student artwork can be accessed via the website at princetonsymphony.org under Education/Responding to Music. All PSO BRAVO! programs are free to participating students and schools thanks to the support of sponsors who believe in the importance of the arts in education. To learn more about “Listen Up!” or other PSO BRAVO! education programs or to offer support, call (609) 497-0020. The students’ visual and literary works are on display through June 2 at the Arts Council of Princeton’s Paul Robeson Center, 102 Witherspoon Street, 2nd floor lobby.

Mendelson Converts Plastic into Art

New York-based artist Shari Mendelson creates works that resemble something you’d expect to see in the antiquities gallery of a fine art museum, but take a closer look. Mendelson creates her ancient-appearing vessels and figurines using salvaged plastic: juice, soda, and water bottles. She cuts them into pieces and then, using hot glue and acrylic resin, creates new sculptures. “Shari Mendelson: Amphorae and Apparitions” is on exhibition at the Hunterdon Art Museum (HAM) through September 1. “The original material is transformed from plastic trash into pieces that address issues of history, culture, and the relative value of objects,” Mendelson said. She said the work resonates even for those unfamiliar with ancient art or who haven’t studied it. “They’ll often say

this reminds me of an ancient Roman piece,” she noted. “That’s a nice touchstone to introduce them to the work.” Mendelson’s eco-sculptures reframe our past and confront our conspicuous consumption and what that means to our future. And sometimes the work befuddles those viewing it for the first time. “People might not know where the recycled plastic is,” Mendelson noted. “Then they begin to see a logo or a recycling stamp with a label and then they begin to get it. That’s what draws them in.” “Using plastic bottles, Mendelson at once puts contemporary environmental issues on a collision course with civilization’s long history,” said Marjorie Frankel Nathanson, executive director of the Hunterdon Art Museum. “By presenting this work HAM hopes to spark a discussion that might include the environment, consumerism, ancient civilizations and contemporary values.” Her creations have been shown nationally and internationally including solo exhibitions at Todd Merrill Studio in Manhattan, Pierogi Gallery in Brooklyn, and John Davis Gallery in Hudson, New York. Among other recognitions, the artist has received four New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowships, and is a 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship recipient. Mendelson received her MFA from SUNY New Paltz in 1986 and is currently a lecturer at Parsons School of Design in Manhattan. The Hunterdon Art Museum is at 7 Lower Center Street in Clinton. Hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (908) 735-8415 or visit the website at www.hunterdonartmuseum.org.

musicians forged great groups, like The Byrds; The Mamas and the Papas; and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, while others became rock gods in their own right. Now, thanks to producer Lou Adler and Dylan’s son Jakob, we have a sensational rockumentary revisiting that era. The film features both archival concert footage and interviews with most of the above. It is a treat to see Ringo Starr reveal how close he and David Crosby

were back in the day, and hear Dylan discussing what it was like growing up in such a rich cultural environment. So, this film makes for a magical walk down Memory Lane offering a fun ride for young and old alike. The film’s only flaw rests with performances by several next generation artists like Beck, Jade, and Jakob Dylan, who prove to be talented, but inappropriate for a movie focused on that time period. Furthermore, Jakob serves as interviewer of his fellow celebs, a task for which he is woefully unprepared. Otherwise, what a wonderful trip to remind us all of a pivotal moment in U.S. history! Very Good (H H H). Rated PG-13 for suggestive content and drug references. Running time: 82 minutes. Production Company: Mirror Films. Distributor: Greenwich Entertainment. —Kam Williams

clients that exercise and hydration are important ways to help the lymphatic system function properly. Sessions are usually one hour, and, typically, three to six treatments will be effective to improve the patient’s condition. “The time can vary, depending on the situation,” she explains. “Improvement can often come quickly, but other times, it can be a longer process, and I try to help clients to be patient and understand the treatment. I do my best to educate them about the process and what they can expect. “This is still a pioneering treatment in terms of mainstream health care, and I look forward to lymphatic enhancement therapy becoming more mainstream and being accessible to more people. I am so grateful to be able to help my clients enjoy a healthier life.” Treatment costs range from $125 for a 60-minute session to $175 for 90 minutes. Discount packages are also available for three to six treatments. “This is an exciting time in health care, and I truly love what I do,” says Ruiz. “Each client is an individual, and I totally focus on each person. I have been a licensed therapist for 18 years, and I am always continuing to learn every day. Watching my clients improve brings such joy.” Amala Lymphatic & Massage Therapy is open Monday through Friday 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Weekends by special appointment. (609) 955-8500.

Help for Variety of Troublesome Conditions From Amala Lymphatic & Massage Therapy

the body to a place where it can self-heal, and keep the body in a healthy state.” A 2001 graduate of The Swedish Institute of Health Sciences in New York City and recipient of a Forbes 5-Star Award for Excellency, Ruiz uses a multidimensional approach that integrates Eastern and Western philosophy and modalities. She was first licensed in New York, and she practiced in Manhattan for 13 years. “Each state has its own requirements,” she points out. “In New York, you must get a license, and this entails a year and a half of full-time training to get the degree, and then passing the state exam to obtain the license. Healing Massage “There are many kinds of massage,” she continues, “and for me and my work history, my focus has been on systemic modalities that affect the whole body as contrasted with muscular

specificity. “Although my repeat clientele were thrilled with their monthly massage as it gave them a week or two or three of relief from their chronic ailment, it left me feeling frustrated as each month we were back at square one. At this point, I realized I needed to implement more systemic forms of body work that would directly impact the root cause and healing of their condition.” This led her to lymphatic enhancement therapy, which required more intensive training, including Level 1 and Level 2 advanced classes. “Lymphatics is part of the circulatory system,” explains Ruiz. “It is responsible for detoxifying the body. It supports the body in eliminating toxins naturally.” She uses two methods to help clients achieve proper functioning of the lymphatic system: manual therapy, which involves a very light and gentle pressure on specific lymph nodes to stimulate the drainage process; and the FDA-approved LymphStar Pro Fusion device, which assists in breaking down congested fluid, and accelerating fluid flow to remove toxins from the body. According to the American Center for Biological Medicine, “LymphStar Pro is a therapeutic lymphatic drainage device that uses low energy vibration in the form of acoustic and electro static fields. Along with normal stimulation of the lymph nodes, this electrical

stimulation assists lymph drainage up to eight times faster than normal lymph drainage alone. “It can also improve circulation, promote drainage of excess fluid, and improve collagen formation.” Natural Detoxification As Ruiz points out, “Lymphatic enhancement therapy supports the body’s natural detoxification, elimination, and healing processes, and boosts the immune system by producing immune cells. “One half of the process is clearing out the toxins and one half is initiating the immune system. When functioning properly, the lymphatic system naturally eliminates toxins through the skin (perspiration), bladder, and bowels.” If not working correctly, however, it can be a factor in a number of problems, such as inflammation, migraine headaches, digestive issues, swelling, sinus irritation and allergies, increased number of colds, and fatigue. “Stress is another important issue which can involve the lymphatic system,” says Ruiz. “The effects of stress can be a contributor to inflammation, and inflammation can be a factor in autoimmune and other illnesses. Lymphatic enhancement therapy has a direct impact on the nervous system, shifting it to a parasympathetic space where the body can heal and restore.” Ruiz’s clients include teens and adults, and the majority are women, she reports. Many are referred to her by

surgical swelling, lymphedema, and autoimmune illnesses. “Regarding issues with post-surgical swelling,” she explains, “if the swelling is reduced, healing is accelerated.” In addition, her treatments suppor t women’s health, including breast healt h, fertility enhancement, and pre- and post-menopause comfort.

Jewelry Designer and Goldsmith Robin Hepburn’s Creations Are on Display at Orion Jewelry Studio

“P

eople like jewelry because it of ten represents a feeling or memory, something to commemorate. Perhaps a milestone event, a wedding, anniversary, or birthday.” It can also be an heirloom passed down in the family that has special meaning. Or it can be a brand-new piece that is especially beautiful.”

IT’S NEW To Us

Robin Hepburn, jewelry designer and goldsmith, and owner of Orion Jewelry Studio in Pennington, certainly knows about her subject. She is an expert in the field, and is about to celebrate her 30th year of business in Pennington. Now located in the Shoppes At Pennington, 21 Route 31 North, her studio is both her showcase and her workplace. The charming studio offers a welcoming display of imaginative, innovative, and beautiful jewelry in an environment which immediately engages customers and invites them to take time to enjoy the appealing atmosphere. A large back room contains her workshop, where she creates her own one-of-a-kind pieces, including bracelets, necklaces, rings, and earrings. It is also the location for the repair and cleaning services she offers. Nearly all work is done on the premises. Art and Design Hepburn has always been involved in art and design. Born and raised in Pennington, she was introduced to the visual world of art through her father George C. Koeppel III’s art gallery, The Queenstown Gallery. He also had a silversmith shop in Hopewell, and this added an additional dimen-

sion to the creative world that surrounded her. After attending art school, with a metal smith major, she worked in a jewelr y store in Philadelphia to get a sense of the jewelry business “Also,” as she explains, “to continue my education, I took classes in Boston, in Arizona, and other locations to learn new techniques, such as metal forming, advanced stone setting, and metal roller printing. I also took classes at the Gemology Institute of America and earned certification as a goldsmith. In addition, I have taken other classes with masters in the field.” Her career took a new turn when she moved to St. Thomas, the U.S. Virgin Islands, where she opened her own jewelry store, and lived for 10 years. She began her desig n work there, and today, in many ways, her jewelry design still evokes the tropical motif and serenity of the islands. The sculptural forms and rare gemstones blend to create hallmark pieces that are both elegant and exotic. “My ide as com e f rom nature,” she observes. “It must be fresh. I have a vision, and the piece can also be inspired by the shape of the stone. My first design was a gold cuff/leaf bracelet, which I wear every day. I designed it when my son was 6 months old, and it is really a part of me.” Signature Piece The elegant hammered gold bracelet has become a signature piece, and a favorite of many customers. It is also available in sterling silver, and can be personalized with diamonds and other gemstones. Orion’s clients, who are f rom Pr inceton and t he area, include many of longstanding. “I also have clients from Brooklyn, New York City, Washington, D.C., and

Northern New Jersey,” says Hepburn. “A lot of time, even if they have moved, people still want the one-ofa-kind pieces I offer. Some also find me online or have heard of my reputation, and, in addition, I now have the children of my original clients coming in for engagement rings. Now we have a second generation!” Engagement and anniversary rings are a popular part of her business, she notes, adding. “I can also redesign an engagement ring for a special anniversary.” Another important part of her work is the updating or redesign of older pieces. “These may have come from someone in the family, and perhaps can look somewhat dated, and the client may want a more modern, up-todate look,” says Hepburn. “One customer came in with a very large diamond ring, and wanted it to be redesigned into something she could wear every day. Clients bring in stones of any quantity, and we can create a design for a ring, necklace, pendant, earrings, or bracelet.” Client’s Concept When Hepburn begins the design process, she asks for the client’s ideas and vision, then takes notes and makes a sketch — often of four different views of the piece. “I start with the client’s concept, and then bring their dream to reality. This is my great pleasure.” In addition to her custom work for specific clients, many of Hepburn’s pieces are on display in the studio. A mong t hose especially popular are the double loop gold necklace and two-disk solid gold pendant necklaces, suitable for engraving. These feature a hammered texture unique to Orion. “Stacking rings are favorites now, too,” points out Hepburn. “They can include diamonds, rubies, and other

CREATIVE CONCEPTS: “The biggest part of the business is my creative design.

They often start with one, and then add more as they are able. “Also popular are memory lockets. They are gold with a glass center and magnet opening. You can add a gemstone or pearl in the center for a special look and meaning. “We also offer a nice alternative bracelet at a lower cost. It is bi-metal, 18k gold fused with sterling silver, and it is available in different sizes.” Test of Time H e pb u r n i n c or p or ate s precious and semi-precious stones into her designs, and also likes to specialize in more unusual stones, such as the rare tanzanite from Tanzania. On the other hand, pearls have continued to be a favorite for many clients over the years. They truly stand the test of time, she says. Orion also offers a special diamond trade-up program. “You can buy a pair of diamond earrings, and later if

you want something larger, you can trade in the smaller pair for new ones. The cost of the original pair will be deducted from the new larger earrings.” Hepburn also buys gold and platinum, which can then be refined (melted) to be used in other designs. The purchase price can be put toward a new piece, she explains. In addition to the jewelry, Orion offers selected handmade gift items, often from local artisans. Wonderfully fragrant handmade soaps, beautiful silk scarves, candles made from tree branch castings, and cork handbags from Portugal are among them, and all will be welcome gifts. Special Award Being part of the Pennington community is very important to Hepburn. As she says, “I love this community, and I love working with the people here. I hire local people, and I donate to local charities, organizations, and fundraisers. I want to give back to the community.” In honor of her efforts

and contributions, she will r e c e ive t h e C om m u n it y Leadership Award from the Hopewell Valley YMCA at a special event on April 27. Hepburn is proud of Orion’s success, and also of her staff, including store manager Moira Sanford, who has been with Orion for six years. “I love what I do. I am so lucky to have been able to turn my passion and creativity into my livelihood. I never know what kind of project will come along. There is always something new, and I love that. I look forward to coming to work every day. “I also look forward to continuing to create new designs. My art and craftsmanship are always evolving. I am so happy that my clients appreciate my work.” Orion Jewelry Studio is open Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday 10 to 4, and by appointment. (609) 737-7235.

With Seniors Setting Tone for PU Open Crew, Tigers Dominate Ivy Regatta, Make NCAAs

Even though the Princeton University women’s open crew program had produced a superb regular season, highlighted by its varsity eight going undefeated, Lori Dauphiny was uneasy heading into the Ivy League Championships last weekend. “I was more nervous than I have ever been in my life,” said Princeton head coach Dauphiny. “I want the senior class to succeed because this class has brought so much to this team. I really want the best for this senior class so we can’t, as a group, fall short for them.” The Princeton group rose to the occasion last Sunday, dominating the regatta as it placed first in the varsity four, the varsity four B, the third varsity eight, the second varsity eight, and the varsity eight. That depth was crucial as the league’s automatic spot in the upcoming NCAA regatta was being based on highest point total in the varsity eight, second varsity eight and varsity four events this year rather than the winner of the varsity eight as in past seasons. “The team was very excited to see what they could do,” said Dauphiny. “That was something we talked about in the beginning of the year. It is always a fo-

The Tiger senior group, led by captains Claire Collins and Emily Kallfelz, played a key role in setting that positive tone. “They were extremely important to what the team was able to accomplish this year.” said Dauphiny. “They led by example. They had previous experience and they were able to teach the younger kids and they took on that task. They were personable and related to the team. You have senior classes that are so mature, they don’t relate as well. This senior class was resilient and definitely set an example for all of our athletes. I give much of the credit for the success to the senior class.” Another factor that boosted Princeton was some good luck on the injury front. “Something else that really helped us was that we did have some injuries during the season and those folks came back to the team, so we had a bit more people,” said Dauphiny. “We were still missing some people, that is always sad. But in general, we had people come back from some setbacks.” That extra depth paid dividends as the Tigers excelled across the board. “My assistant coaches did awesome work; throughout the team, the boats exceeded their ranks,” said Dauphiny.

cus on the team and all boats doing well. We knew that there was a little added piece to that since the AQ (Automatic Qualifier) was now going to a points winner.” The Tigers built momentum through the day in the competition held on the Cooper River in Pennsauken, N.J. as one Princeton boat after another finished first. “The schedule was such that they saw each other; the varsity is the last race, so everyone knew everyone else’s results, except the varsity didn’t know how the 2V had done,” said Dauphiny. The program won its fourth straight Ivy title in the varsity eight and its first Sally P. Shoemaker Trophy, the top point total for all boats, since it won three straight from 2011-13. “When the 3V got got to the course, they knew that the V4 had won. When the 3V was just pulling into the dock with their gold medal, the 2V could see that as they were launching. Everyone was so excited for each other and there were lots of embraces.” In Dauphiny’s view, team unity helped fuel its super Sunday. “This team just really gelled and was very caring about and supportive of one another,” said Dauphiny. “That team culture definitely helped us with what went down.”

“You go in with a ranking and you never know. Only the varsity was ranked No. 1; they fulfilled that and that was scary enough. The 2V was ranked fourth and they won. The varsity four was ranked third and they won. You just go right down the chain. It was a day where everything came together.” Things have come together for the varsity eight as it is now 13-0 on the spring. “They had an undefeated season which is pretty special,” said Dauphiny of the top boat which posted a winning time of 6:23.47 over the 2,000-meter course with Brown taking second in 6:27.26 and Yale finishing third in 6:31.74.

“There are five seniors in that boat. Throughout the year, they kept improving. I can’t really pinpoint whether it was this or it was that. It was just steps along the way. They continued learning, they continued evaluating performances. We kept tweaking those things that needed to improve.” With the NCAA regatta taking place from May 31June 2 in Indianapolis, Ind., Dauphiny will keep tweaking things. “We are going to dream big, for sure,” said Dauphiny of the competition which includes the varsity eight, the second varsity eight, and the varsity four. “It is so hard to compare

west and east. We don’t have that much or any overlap with Washington, Cal, or Stanford. They move fast and the west coast has proven to be fast. We will be underdogs in this but I think we will give our best. Our expectations are high.” In Dauphiny’s view, Princeton’s performance at the Ivy regatta should be a confidence builder going into the national competition. “I think we can build on Sunday,” said Dauphiny. “There were positives in the momentum on that day and I think if we can continue to feed off the success of our other boats, that will help.” —Bill Alden

Special Journey Ends for PU Women’s Lax Seniors As Tigers Fall to Boston College in NCAA Quarters Each senior on the Princeton University women’s lacrosse team had the chance to tell their story to the team before a game this season. They would talk about their journey from freshman year until this, their senior year, through the ups and downs of being a Princeton student, of injuries and setbacks, and of triumphs and titles. It’s a tradition that started five years ago, just before this year’s senior class joined the program. “It really does personalize everybody and give you a better sense that a lot of kids weren’t starters the moment they got here, and in some cases they had to wait their time and grow and improve, or fight through injury,” said Princeton head coach Chris Sailer. “U lt i mately t hey were good enough to earn a spot. It’s unusual to have so many seniors that played significant roles for us on the field. But they’re a great example of what can happen if you work hard and bring a great attitude.” Their journey in the program came to an end with a 17-12 loss to secondseeded Boston College last Saturday in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals. BC improved to 21-1 and will face North Carolina in the semifinals with Maryland and Northwestern squaring off in the other semi. The Tigers finish the season 16-4 and on Monday began looking to next year in exit meetings with players.

“There are definitely some big shoes to fill,” said Sailer. “We need everybody ready to step up and really challenge for open spots. We have some good freshmen coming in which is exciting. We have some great returners. Our goalie [Sam Fish] and our defense returns and Kyla [Sears] and Tess [D’Orsi], but we’re graduating so many of our points and half of our midfield and a lot of our speed. We all just need to be ready to work to improve our skillsets and athleticism.” Princeton will graduate Nonie Andersen, Alex Argo, Elizabeth George, Kathryn Hallett, Julia Haney, Izzy Mangan and Allie Rogers. Athleticism is something that stuck out in the seven seniors when t hey were freshmen. The run test is one of the first things they do when they arrive to campus and the results wowed. “Their work ethic and how hard they push themselves in their training really did elevate the team as a whole,” said Sailer. “And they weren’t superstars from the moment they got here. Argo started the most games and a number of them got playing time as a freshman, Argo was probably the most impactful of the freshmen, but they worked their way up. They earned starting positions and got better each year. They’re incredible examples of what you can become if you bring great energy and keep working hard. They’re also full of

personality. They love each other, they bring energy and laughter and fun into everything they do. That personality piece is another piece that we’ll miss.” Hallett matched her career-high with four goals in the loss to BC that snapped Princeton’s 11-game winning streak. Rogers had a hat trick. Sophomore star Sears had a goal and two assists. while junior D’Orsi had a goal. George had a goal and assist. Sophomore goalie Fish made nine saves. Princeton led 6-4 after 24 minutes before BC took a 7-6 lead on three straight goals before halftime. D’Orsi’s goal knotted the contest at 7-7 a minute into the second half but Boston College responded with five straight goals to take control. “BC is going to get their goals,” said Sailer. “They have three phenomenal attackers and a really great feeder. Early in the game, it was their support players on offense, not the big three that were putting the balls in the cage. And then [Sam] Apuzzo stepped up and Kenzie Kent had fantastic feeds and they started clicking. It’s tough to hold them off. I thought our defense did a pretty good job, but they’re smart players and they have good ball movement. They’d thread the ball in where it felt like we had it covered and she’d just take it and rifle a shot against Fish, who’s a great keeper.” Possession hurt the Tigers as Boston College built a 21-

all over the field and I think our kids competed hard. We fought hard to the end and we got some goals down the stretch and our defense was able to get some turnovers against them. I was proud of the way we competed.” It’s the second straight season that Boston College has knocked Princeton out of the NCAA tournament. Last year, it was a 16-10 loss on the first weekend of play. Both teams returned with many of the same players. “I think it was pretty similar,” said Sailer. “We felt really good going into that game. We felt really good about our season and our personnel and how we’d been playing and how we match up. I think there was a lot of confidence and belief in our end. I think there

FINAL SALVO: Princeton University women’s lacrosse player Kathryn Hallett heads upfield in a game earlier this season.

The defeat left the Tigers with a final record of 16-4.

10 advantage in draw controls, making it difficult for the Tigers to rally. “I think they had 11 extra possessions than we did, and two or three times we won the draw and turned it right over, so really it’s more like 13 or 14 extra possessions, and that’s significant in the game of lacrosse when you play a team that’s scoring at a 50 percent pace on their shots,” said Sailer. “I think that really ultimately made the difference in the game. And we did have our opportunities. We had at least three or four shots that we wanted to have back. If things go a little differently, I think the result could have been different. Going into that game, you know you have to play a great game for 60 minutes

were key draws, they anticipate so well. We’re a fast team and they’d have a step on us. They always seemed to be where the ball was and they’d pop it to a teammate and that made such a difference for them, those extra possessions.” Princeton’s resiliency all spring is one reason it still held onto hope of a comeback even when Boston College broke away in the second half. The Tigers had climbed out of an early hole in the Ivy League season after a loss to Brown to win the league regular season championship for the sixth straight year and they went on to capture the Ivy tourney title for a third straight season. “That’s pretty phenomenal for our kids,” said Sailer. “The Ivy League is so competitive and there are usually two, if not three teams, in the NCAA tournament every year and every other team thinking they can knock you off. To be able to beat teams like Penn, Dartmouth and Cornell and go back a week or two later and beat them again, that’s not easy. When you play at Princeton, your number one goal to win your conference. After our loss to Brown, we were able to bounce back and win tough games on the road at Dartmouth, at Penn, at Cornell and secure the championship and then bring home the tournament title as well.” It’s the high standard that the returning players were targeting when they met with Sailer and her staff on Monday to start to turn the page on another great season and look ahead to the 2020 campaign. “We’ll be talking about ways each player can improve and what we’re looking for from them,” said Sailer. “At the same time that we have a lot to replace. It’s exciting for other kids in the program to see some more opportunities and that they can work to gain more playing time.” —Justin Feil

It’s the most prestigious event that a Princeton volleyball player has ever participated in at the national level. Starting on May 31, the 2019 VNL features men playing over the weekends and women during the week in pools of four teams each until each has played against every other in a single round robin tournament. The top five teams at the end of the Preliminary Round join the hosts of the Finals to fight for the ultimate prize. The women’s finals will be held in China from July 3-7 with the men’s following a week later July 10-14 in the United States. It has been a stellar year for Huhmann, a 6’11 native of St. Louis, Mo., as he picked up his second All-America accolade last month. He was also awarded the Uvaldo Acosta Memorial EIVA Player of the Year becoming the first Tiger to ever win the nomination. He later helped the Tigers to their second EIVA title in program history, leading to him be picked as the EIVA Tournament’s Most Valuable Player.

Hun Baseball Enjoys Historic Weekend, Cruising to 4th Straight Prep A Crown As it competed in the state Prep A tournament last weekend, the Hun School baseball team wasn’t just playing for a title. Bringing a 20-2 record into the action on Saturday, Hun was looking to stamp itself as one of the greatest teams in the history of the proud program. The Raiders achieved both goals, topping Peddie 5-0 on Saturday in a winner’s bracket contest to earn a spot in the final round and then came back on Sunday to rout the Falcons 12-0 in the double-elimination competition to earn the program’s fourth straight Prep A crown. Having fallen short of the Mercer County Tournament by losing 4-0 to Hopewell Valley in the semifinals, Hun wasn’t going to leave anything to chance as it went for the Prep A four-peat. “They treated this weekend as a reset, to go back to where we were when we started the season in terms of approach with the addition of everything we have improved on from that point,” said Hun head coach Tom Monfiletto. “It was not let the disappointment of the county semifinal seep into this weekend at at all. They really didn’t want to leave any doubt.” Needing one win on Sunday to clinch the title, Monfiletto put things in the hands of his seniors. “We had seven seniors start that game, it was great to see them take ownership of that,” said Monfiletto. “Blaney Soper had a great game. Shaan Patel had a big RBIs, Jack Erbeck hit a home run, Andy Blake hit a hone run, McGwire Tuffy had a hit, Danny Melnick got a double. Everybody

really played well. We were able to take the lead and build the lead throughout the game.” The Raiders had been eyeing Prep A dominance for a while. “The last team that had won it besides us was Blair,” said Monfiletto. “When we won in 2016, we said that we wanted to make a run better than Blair’s. Winning four in a row was crazy, I don’t think that has been done by anyone since I have been with the program either as a player or a coach. With this senior class coming in 2016, we saw that as a possibility. Some of the seniors that were here for four years wanted to finish it off perfect.” With his squad producing a nearly perfect spring as it posted a sparkling final record of 22-2, Monfiletto believes the 2019 Hun team has staked a claim to being the best in program history. “I think it is up there, if not the best, because of our schedule,” said Monfiletto “We played a lot of really good teams on the road and outside of our conference. I think the St Augustine win (8-5 on April 8) was huge. We beat a really good Middletown South team (8-1 on April 17). We beat a really good Somerville team (8-1 on April 25). We swept our MAPL (Mid-Atlantic Prep League) conference, which is never easy to do. We beat a really good Allentown program (10-0 on April 1). We beat Steinert for the second year in a row (2-0 on May 4), which I don’t know if we have done before. We had a lot of firsts this year. At the end of the year, that win against Seton Hall Prep (2-0 on May 3) was one of the highlights of the year.”

While the Raiders boast talented players all over the field, Monfiletto pointed to a special camaraderie as a key ingredient underlying the team’s success. “They are really tight, they are all really close,” said Monfiletto. “They are friends with each other, that is something that we have really tried to cultivate over the years. Throughout the year, we do organized and unorganized gatherings with the team, whether it be going to the movies, whether it be bowling, dinners, 3-on-3 basketball tournaments. This team was uniquely close.” Enjoying being together helped encourage the Raiders to put in extra time to improve their skills. “The one thing that this team has that was better than any other team that I have been a part of here is an insatiable work ethic,” asserted Monfiletto. “That starts immediately after the season is over and it really doesn’t stop. It continues over the season and into the offseason. That is something that this group, in particular, took ownership of and really capitalized on.” In his final message to the team, Monfiletto reminded his players that their dominance didn’t come easy. “That is what I said to them after the game, I don’t want you to forget about what it took to get to this point, it didn’t just happen overnight,” said Monfiletto. “Every time you sneak into a hitting facility to get extra swings at night, every time you picked somebody up to go to the field. All of that extra stuff that they did that wasn’t part of our organized plan. A lot of times, it just wasn’t one person.” —Bill Alden

Petrone Provided Spark for Hun Baseball As it Won Prep A Opener After MCT Loss Coming off a disappointing 4-0 loss to Hopewell Valley in the Mercer County Tournament semifinals, the Hun School baseball team was determined to rebound as it hosted Lawrenceville in the opening round of the state Prep A tournament last Wednesday. “We didn’t play like ourselves on Saturday night,” said Hun sophomore second baseman Ben Petrone. “We were definitely fired up to get back out here and show how good we really are. We want to prove to everyone that we are one of the top teams in the state.” But appearing to be suffering a bit of a hangover from the defeat to HoVal, the firstseeded Raiders found themselves knotted in a scoreless tie with fourth-seeded Lawrenceville as the game headed into the fourth inning. “In the beginning, we were a little sluggish,” said Petrone. “We know how good we are, we know we can pick things up when we need it. We need to get more fired up out of the gate, but we scored runs we needed them and we came through.” Petrone came though, hitting a single in the bottom of the fourth that moved Shaan Patel to third and then stealing second. Both Patel and Petrone later scored as Hun jumped ahead 2-0 and never looked back on the way to an 11-1 victory. Batting in the ninth spot in the Hun lineup, Petrone has focused on providing more offense this spring. “I have been working a lot on it; it has definitely progressed and that has come through, said Petrone, who added a double and went 2-for-3 with two runs scored on the day. “We work harder than anybody. We hit more than anybody. It was going to come and I guess it came out a little bit this year.” Hun head coach Tom Monfiletto believes that work is paying off for Petrone. “Ben had two great swings today,” said Monfiletto. “He is not your typical nine hole hitter. He has been excellent all year. He is usually

great in the gaps. That hit was big; everybody could breathe a sigh of relief. We just needed one to get back into the feel of it and that helped.” Petrone has been an excellent fielder from the time he arrived at Hun in 2017 after playing one season for Princeton High. “We work hard on the fielding just like we do at the plate,” said Petrone. “We spend a bunch out time out there. It is a lot of fun turning double plays.” For Petrone, becoming a member of the Raider program has been a lot of fun. “I love Hun, I think this team is amazing,” said Petrone, noting that he was plagued by a leg injury in his one season at PHS. “The guys on it are amazing, we are going to miss these seniors next year. We have a lot of young guys coming through so I think we will be fine. It

is one of the best decisions I have ever made, definitely.” In Petrone’s view, the way the guys have come together has been a key factor in Hun’s success this spring. “We are all like brothers out there,” said Petrone. “It is not like a team, it is really like a brotherhood. We are together all of the time. We go out to dinner. We don’t really take any days off, even in the winter. We are working all fall, all summer. We have 8 a.m. lifts in the summer.” That daily diligence helped lift Hun to the Prep A title as it closed the deal, topping Peddie 5-0 in Saturday and 12-0 on Sunday to wrap up the title in the double elimination competition and end the spring with a 22-2 record. “We have 20 wins right now,” said Petrone, looking ahead to the weekend. “To get those two more this weekend would feel great, to bounce back from a tough Saturday.” —Bill Alden

Colleen Linko used to get very nervous before track meets. The Princeton High junior can’t afford to show her nerves anymore, not as a captain this season. Her new approach is benefitting her and the girls team. “I’ve been having a great season,” said Linko. “I’ve become a lot more confident in my racing this year which was a problem for me last year. I’d always get super nervous before a race last year and I’d be like, ‘The 400 is so hard and I don’t know if I can do it.’ This year, that wasn’t as much of a problem. This year, because I’m an upperclassmen on the team and a captain, I spend a lot more time looking out for the newer runners and try to radiate positive energy onto them instead of stressing out on my own.” Linko has worked to become an example to the less experienced PHS runners in her new role; she has been someone they can look to for how they can prepare for a busy meet day that includes four events and what it takes to do each event well. “Colleen has developed the mental aspect of her preparation,” said PHS associate head coach Ben Samara. “We’ve talked endlessly about it. It’s very easy when you’re asked to do something scary, and asked to a do an event you wouldn’t normally do or do two or three events close together in the same meet, to put a negative spin on that. And that’s easy to spread to the team. Colleen realized that we can’t do that. We put a big emphasis on positivity and Colleen has embraced that. That’s a big part of her jump this year.” Being a team leader is the biggest change for Linko this year. She’s doing the same events she always has for the Tigers, but now she’s also stepped into a bigger role off the track. In the beginning of the year, she was helping to

monitor weight lifting technique for younger athletes and with the season starting, she’s tried to encourage others in practices. “It’s made me a lot more positive towards everyone on the team,” said Linko. “During workouts, we know it’s hard but we’ll get through it. Coach knows we’re capable of doing it and we have to keep a positive attitude. That’s different from last year. I was a lot more negative because I just thought it was so hard and it’d hurt so much and I’d be dying.” In addition to embracing her leadership role, Linko continues to improve on the track. She won both the 400 and 200 and anchored the winning 4x400 relay as the PHS girls’ squad placed second overall at the Mercer County Championships earlier this month. She is hoping to ride that momentum into a similar showing in the Central Jersey Group 4 sectional championships Friday and Saturday at Howell High. “I’m looking to get top three in the 400,” said Linko. “Last year, I got seventh which was disappointing because the top six make it through (to groups). But also I was a sophomore. I’ve gotten so much faster already. I hope that’s a good goal for me. Also in the 4x400, I hope to get top 3 too. We won the sectional 4x400 indoors, but we’re missing one of our main runners so that lowers our chances of winning this season. We still have three super fast runners and we just need to figure out who our fourth leg should be.” Linko has developed into a highly reliable competitor. She trains year-round and has seen it pay dividends with her best year yet. Her own expectations have increased and that helps her approach races with mounting confidence. “I’ve run the 400 and 200 so much this season that now

LINKING UP: Princeton High girls’ track star Colleen Linko displays her form in a recent race. Junior Linko produced a superb performance as the Mercer County Championships earlier this month, winning the 200 and 400 and helping the Tigers prevail in the 4x400 relay.

I have a good race strategy,” said Linko. “That always calms me down. I’ve run it so many times now that I know I can do it.” Experience has been a big benefit to Linko; helping her overcome her nerves and adopt a good attitude about the demands of her events. “In general, I’m a lot less nervous because I’ve done it so much before,” said Linko. “The 400, it’s so exhausting and it hurts so much afterward, but I know I’ll get through it and if I run the race strategy correctly, I’ll be able to finish it fine. I know it’ll hurt afterwards whether I run it fast or run it slow. Now it’s not so much thinking about the pain, it’s run fast and you’ll be fine after like 10 minutes.” With Linko having grown accustomed to negotiating her way through a big workload each meet, the Tigers needed that kind of strength to compete for a team title at counties and will need it to show well at sectionals. “We’ve been working a lot with all the girls, but especially with Colleen being able to handle doubles and triples and quads and doing what’s necessary to prepare for that,” said Samara. “We saw that pay off Saturday at the county meet. It’s pretty incredible when you look at it and see Princeton win the 200, 400, 800, 1,600 and 3,200.” Samara sees a lot of potential for PHS athletes to advance out of sectional, even though CJ 4 is loaded with talent. The top six finishers in each event move on to the Group 4 state meet in Egg Harbor the following weekend. “On the girls side, we’re really strong in the sprints and distances,” said Samara. “Where we’ll fall short in the sectional level is the field events. We’re still developing our jumps and our throws. We can only put out who we have. We have some really nice young throwers and jumpers, but they’re not quite ready for the sectionals yet. We’ll put them in the big spot and see if we can get them some good experience for next year. In the sprints and distance, we should be able to compete in almost every event.” At the sectional meet, Linko will be doing her usual lineup of the 200 and 400, plus 4x100 and 4x400 relays. The county meet was a good test of how she can perform with the best of the best in a large meet. To come away with three golds, two in her individual events, was a big boost. “It was great,” said Linko. “I was really happy. Last year, I got third, one of them being my teammate, Jackie Patterson. And the other one was Brianna (Hodges) from (WW/P-South), and they’re b ot h at C olu mbia now. They’re both not here this year, so I thought I should win this year with some Milesplit stalking to see my major competition to prepare myself. Overall, I knew I had a pretty good chance of winning the 400 and 200. I was excited the day before.” That excitement helped Linko perform the way she would have wanted with official personal records of

57.51 seconds in the 400 and 25.69 seconds in the 200. She competed in the 400 fresh before starting her long day of events. “It’s probably better that way,” said Linko. “I’ve never run a fresh 200 this season. I always wonder what I could run if I was fresh and not having just run a 400 before. I’d rather have the longer race before so I know I don’t have anything to be tired from.” She could have been tired after teaming up with Reina Williamson, Kendall Williamson, and Ella Kotsen for fourth in the 4x100, but still had to the anchor leg of the 400 as her final event. “In the 4x400, we had Reina Williamson to Siena Moran to Kendall Williamson to me,” said Linko. “We had

a pretty big lead when I got it, which was good because it was my fourth event. We won by 9-10 seconds. It wasn’t a very close race.” Linko and her teammates are ready for tougher competition in sectionals, not just in the relays but in their individual events. Exuding her leadership approach, Linko will be pushing herself and her teammates to do their best. “She’s the leader of our sprint group,” said Samara. “She and Gracie (Poston) are our two captains and they’re both juniors. They’re captains for a reason. Kendall Williamson is tremendously talented and Colleen’s mentorship has taken her to a new level. She’s done what Jackie Patterson, who’s now at Columbia, did for her and

she’s trying to pass it down. That’s what makes a great program a great program.” Getting into track and field in middle school as one of the only sixth graders to make the team pushed Linko to try harder and she ended up developing a passion for the sport that was fueled by the PHS squad. Ultimately she hopes to compete in college in two years and still has time to further develop. “She’s trusted our system, and it can be difficult for some kids,” said Samara. “We really train through indoors and it benefits you now. Colleen never got frustrated. She trusts herself. She trusts the coaching staff. She knows we’ll be where we need to be when the right time comes.” —Justin Feil

Projecting Confidence in Taking Leadership Role, Linko Enjoying Big Spring for PHS Girls’ Track


Aryaman Babber knew he had to step up this spring in his senior season for the Princeton High boys’ tennis team. With PHS losing its top three singles players from the 2018 squad that won the Central Jersey Group 3 sectional title and advanced to the state Group 3 final, Babber moved up to third singles from doubles as the team’s lineup got a major facelift this year. “After we lost all of our three singles players last year, we thought it was going to be a pretty big challenge,” said Babber. “I think all of players really rose to the challenge.” Babber rose to the occasion in his final campaign, emerging as steady performer at third singles, coming through in some narrow wins for the Tigers. “I was a lot more tired, there were a lot more longer rallies, a lot of running and tougher matches,” said Babber, reflecting on making the jump to third singles.

“Before I moved here in 11th grade, I was a singles player. I was on doubles last year so it felt pretty good to move back to singles.” Despite all of the new faces in new places, secondseeded PHS moved on to the Central Jersey Group 3 sectional final, defeating thirdseeded Colts Neck 5-0 in the semis last Thursday In the win over Colts Nock, Babber posted a straight set victory, prevailing 6-1, 6-1 over Shrish Silvan “My serve was pretty consistent throughout,” said Babber in assessing his performance. “I was able to hit a lot of forehand winners, which is probably my strength.” Making the sectional final for a second straight year showed the program’s consistency. “It is prett y amazing,” said Babber. “We made it last year as well, so to be able and come back and do it again after losing three of our top players is a pretty good feeling.” Although PHS ended up

falling 4-1 to top-seeded WW/P-North in the sectional final last Monday to drop to 11-5, that setback doesn’t negate the squad’s progress. “We have definitely gotten better. Both of our doubles teams are super consistent,” said Babber, who got the lone point for the Tigers in the loss to North, topping Sid Deepak 6-2, 6-2. “All three of our singles are pretty consistent as well.” PHS head coach Sarah Hibbert is proud of how her players got the most out of their potential this spring. “Overall the team has really clicked as the season has progressed,” said Hibbert. “We have done about as well as we could have expected this year with the returning players that we had. They have all worked hard.” The Tigers put in some goo d work in s weeping Colts Neck in the sectional semi. “We certainly got a big boost from the fact that they didn’t have their No. 1, who is a strong player,” said Hibbert. “It would have been a much different match if he had been there. We were able to sweep the doubles and we were able to pick up the third singles point; that was my plan. The one and the two were going to be very close because I know their No. 1 is ranked. I was expecting Simon [Hwang] to give him a very good match but I wasn’t sure how that would turn out, and with the two, you never know.”

MANPOWER: Princeton High boys’ tennis Aryaman Babber hits a forehand in state tournament action last week.

The Tigers ended up falling 4-1 to top-seeded WW/P-N in the sectional final last Monday as they moved to 11-5. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) Babber has proven to be a very good player for PHS at third singles. “He has been a steady presence there for us a senior there; it is first year in the singles lineup for us,” said Hibbert, noting that Babber came through in close wins over Hightstown, Robbinsville, and Allentown. “He came in last year and with Noah [Lilienthal], Jerry [Gu], Kevin [Yang] and Si-

mon [Hwang]; no one was cracking that lineup. It was nice for him that he was able to step right back up this year and get back into the singles role. I think he brings a good mental game to the singles.” Considering that the PHS lineup had a much different look from last year, making a return trip to the sectional final was an impressive feat for Hibbert’s squad.

MEMORIAL DAY RECYCLING COLLECTION NOTICE FOR

“This is great for us because we lost all three singles players from last year’s sectional champions,” said Hibbert. “We weren’t expecting to have to rebuild the entire singles lineup and doubles. We only gave one person in the same place as last year [Sameer Joshi at first doubles]. We have had to refashion a lineup.” Babber, for his part, has relished getting the chance to help PHS thrive in that rebuilding process. “Over the last two years, making sectionals twice in a row last year was great,” said Babber. “Last year, our talent was unbelievable so getting to watch those guys grow and then moving into their spots this year is great.” —Bill Alden

Matt Nyce and his teammates on t he P r inceton Day School baseball team weren’t rattled when they fell behind Rutgers Prep 3-0 in the first inning of the state Prep B title game last Thursday evening. “This whole season we have gotten down, we had an 8-1 game against Gill St. Bernard’s where we came back and won,” said senior infielder/pitcher Nyce. “Honestly, all of these guys just want to win.” Nyce started a Panther comeback with an RBI single in the top of the third inning as he drove in Michael Carroll to make it a 4-1 game in the contest played at Diamond Nation in Flemington. “The biggest thing is that we will build on each other so one guy gets a hit and we feed off of that,” said Nyce. In the top of the fourth, Kevin Flahive and Vinny Gasparro both got singles as PDS loaded the bases but failed to push a run across. An inning later, the Panthers narrowed the gap to 4-2 as Tom Bocian got a big hit, lashing a triple to the right field corner to score John Carroll, who reached on a single. PDS, though, never got closer than that as Rutgers Prep tacked on runs in the bottom of the fifth and sixth to earn a 6-2 win and the title. While the loss stung, Nyce was proud of what the Panthers accomplished in advancing to the Prep B title game for the first time since 2010. “This was an awesome run, it was super fun, “ said Nyce, who was the winning pitcher as PDS edged fifthseeded Morristown-Beard 5-4 in the Prep B quarters on May 9 and then contributed two RBIs as the Panthers routed ninth-seeded Ranney School 12-0 in the semis. “I tell the guys all the time it is the best group of guys at our school. There is not one bad guy on the team. I think the reason we made it this far this year is everyone is willing to go 0-for-4 if we win. No one is caring about stats too much, we just want to win. We don’t have one

guy who is going to hit five home runs, everyone can do something.” Nyce relished going on the run with his four classmates on the squad - Brendan Bucceri and Tommy Sarsfield along with Flahive and Gasparro. “I am going to miss them so much,” said Nyce, “In my four years on varsity, this is the closest group of guys as seniors. We hang out on the weekends, we do stuff. This where we had the biggest leap this year with the five seniors. We led really well, we were selfless guys. No one wanted to be the guy, it was five guys collectively.” In the team’s postgame meeting, the seniors talked about leaving a legacy as the players gathered in left field. “T he m e s s age for t he young guys was to remember this feeling, how much it hurts, and keep working,” said Nyce. “I think they are going to be solid; we have some really good younger guys. I told them to represent us well at school as the baseball team and be good guys.” PDS head coach Brian Dudeck liked the way his guys didn’t get fazed by the early deficit. “We battled back; in the beginning of the season, we would kind of hang our heads a little bit and get down on ourselves,” said Dudeck. “But the last threequarters of the year, every game, we fight and we fight and we fight.” D u d e ck ack n owle d g e d t hat t he Pant hers made things hard on themselves against Rutgers Prep. “We dug ourselves a hole early,” lamented Dudeck. “It is typical of high school baseball, it comes down to who makes the most mistakes, throwing strikes and just putting the ball in play. You put the ball in play and you give yourself half a chance.” Seeing his squad earn a chance to play for a title was heartening for Dudeck. “I a m prou d of t h e s e guys,” said Dudeck, whose team ended up with a final

record of 8-10. “I am proud of the fact that we came a long way. There is a lot of progress.” Dudeck credited his quintet of seniors with sparking that progress. “It is a really solid group. Every single one of them contributes,” said Dudeck. “Vinny Gasparro had a nice catch the other night in left field. You saw what Matt Nyce did tonight; he looked great.” The Panthers got a great cont r ibut ion t h is spr ing from junior standout John Carroll, who went 2-for-4 with a run against Rutgers Prep. “John is hitting over .600, every at-bat is tough with him just fighting,” added Dudeck, noting that junior catcher Bocian had three hits in the defeat. “He is not afraid to just take the ball to right field. He made some great adjustments this year from the beginning of the season to the end of the season.” With Carroll and Bocian returning next season along with Alex Stillwell, Hunter von Zelowitz, and Michael Carroll, Dudeck believes the playoff experience gained this spring will pay dividends. “We have a lot of young guys who got some opportunities,” said Dudeck. “You are trying to initiate somebody into how you are going to do things and that type of stuff. It is not easy.” Nyce, for his part, is confident that those players will come together, following in the tradition of the tight-knit program. “It is the closeness of the team,” said Nyce, when asked what stood out about his PDS baseball experience. “It is a small school and there are about 20 guys in the baseball program. We had everyone dressing for this game. Seniors could talk to freshmen, it wasn’t like this little barrier. We worked out with the freshmen in the fall and asked them to go out to dinner with us.” —Bill Alden

With Senior Stalwarts Going Out With a Bang, PDS Baseball Makes Run to Prep B Title Game

NICE RUN: Princeton Day School baseball player Matt Nyce takes a swing in a game earlier this season. Senior infielder/pitcher Nyce helped PDS enjoyed a special stretch run as the fourth-seeded Panthers advanced to the state Prep B title game. Nyce contributed an RBI as PDS battled second-seeded Rutgers Prep in the title game last Thursday at Diamond Nation in Flemington but it wasn’t enough as the Panthers lost 6-2. The defeat left PDS with a final record of 8-10. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski)

Richard Erskine Downs Julie Marie Amelie Henriette Downs Richard and Julie Downs of Durham, NH, and more recently of Skillman, NJ, each passed away peacefully w ithin 48 hours of one another after extraordinary lives and 70 years of marriage together. Richard, born on December 2, 1920, died at age 98 on May 14, 2019, at the Princeton Medical Center and Julie, born on December 1, 1926, died at age 92 on May 16, 2019, at the Stonebridge at Montgomery retirement community in Skillman. Richard was born in Cambridge, MA, and grew up in North Andover, MA, attending Phillips Academy (grad. 1938) and Harvard (grad. 1942). He witnessed the Great Depression as a child

and following graduation from Harvard served in the U.S. Navy during World War II (learning Japanese to assist in the interception of military intelligence), rising to the rank of Lieutenant. He went on to study in Geneva and Paris and ultimately earn a PhD in Anthropology from the University of Leiden (Netherlands) following the war. Julie van Oldenborgh was born in Semarang, on the Indonesian island of Java, growing up there until moving back to her family’s native Netherlands as a young teenager in 1939 just in time to suffer through the German occupation of that country during WWII. She was attending the University of Amsterdam with the plan of following her

Julie is survived by a sister, Marian Plantenga of Rot terdam, Netherlands. They both are survived by their sons David E. Downs of Hastings-on-Hudson, NY, and Stephen J. Downs of Princeton, NJ; their daughters-in-law Alexis ChapinDow ns and Janet Estes ; their grandchildren Ashley and Taylor and Olivia and Theo; and their great-grandchildren Anna and Emory.

Donald Henry Luecke Donald Henr y Luecke, 85, passed away peacefully Saturday morning, May 11, 2019 at home in Burleson, TX. He had been a resident of Princeton Junction, NJ, for 45 years until his move to Texas in August 2018. He coped courageously with Alzheimer’s disease for the last five years of his life. Don was born on August 5, 1933 in St. Louis, MO, to Erwin and Helen ( Doswald) Luecke. He spent his early years in Forest Hills G ardens, New York. He graduated from Xavier High School in New York City. He received a BA degree cum

laude from the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN, and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He felt honored to serve in the U.S. Navy as a Hospital Corpsman and remained in the reserves until 1961. After spending the early years of his business career in Product Management and Advertising at major corporations, he decided to take a different path and started his own business, Princeton Security Systems, Inc. In his own business he exemplified his vision and belief: “People before Profits” and managed it until he was in his late 70s. He was a very active member of St. Paul’s Parish in Princeton, NJ, serving as Lector, Eucharistic Minister, and Sunday Collection Counter. He coordinated and taught the Bible Study program at St. Paul’s for 20 years. He lived his life as a devout Catholic in thought and deed and was a beautiful example for all. Don was a kind and gentle person. He had a quick wit and was quite the punster. He enjoyed collecting stamps, coins, military memorabilia, and building ship models. He had an appreciation of ancient Green and Roman classics and learned to read and translate koine Greek, enabling him to read the Books of the New Testament in their original Greek. While his education prov ided a fou ndat ion, h is pursuit of knowledge was

evident throughout his life as he was never more than arm’s length from a book or two or three. His love of animals and compassion for all helpless creatures was evident to those who witnessed his careful removal of spiders or once a bat from the house to the outdoors. Don is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Joan ( Meister) Luecke ; daughters, Charlotte Luecke, of Lumberton, NJ, and Susan L u e cke - S ch nu ck ( Per r y ) of Burleson, TX; and six grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Erwin Robert ( Bob) Luecke; and niece, Jean Ann Kaminsky. There will be a funeral mass at St. Ann’s Chapel in Burleson, TX, on May 24, 2019 at 10 a.m. Interment will be at DF W National Cemetery in Dallas, TX at 2 p.m. There will be a memorial mass at St. Paul’s Church in Princeton, NJ, on June 14 at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation in memory of Don to: Community Hospice of Texas, 6100 Western Place, Suite 105, For t Wor th, T X, 76107; Senior Care Services, P.O.

father into the practice of law when she met Richard, fell in love, and eventually married in April 1949. Following the birth of their first child in the Netherlands and post-doctoral field work in Malaya, the couple moved across the globe to make their lives in the United States in 1960 and eventually settled in Durham, NH, in 1962. It was there that Richard went on to be a Professor of Anthropology at the University of New Hampshire and Chair of that institution’s Sociology and Anthropology department and, later, the newly formed Department of Anthropology, for many years. Julie and Richard raised their family (their second child was born in 1964) in Durham before his retirement at age 70 from UNH in 1991. During this time, Richard completed numerous consulting missions, under contract to the U.S. Agency for International Development, in Senegal, Mauritania, Rwanda, Swaziland, and the Republic of the Congo. The couple also took advantage of Richard’s sabbaticals to live in England, The Hague, and the south of France. In 2004, they moved from Durham to Stonebridge, entering in the original group of residents. Richard was known for his intellectual curiosity, his mastery of several languages, and his dry wit. He had an abiding love of classical music. Julie was warm, vivacious, and full of good humor. She took great pride in being the matriarch of a close-knit Dutch-EnglishAmerican family that spans four generations and five countries.

Eric Thibau of Potomac, MD; and her brother John Logan Morris and sister-in-law Susan Teare Morris of Princeton, NJ; along with many loving nieces and nephews. Patricia, known to her family and friends as Pat, grew up on Clearbrook Farm in Princeton, NJ, and attended the Princeton public schools. She graduated in 1973 from Princeton High School and attended Davidson College in Davidson, NC, matriculating in the first co-ed class. She founded the Davidson Women’s Chorale Group and was lead singer in several campus musicals. She graduated in 1977 with a B.A. in Music. Patricia was an advertising sales associate at the Norfolk Ledger Star newspaper and worked in a nursing home in Norfolk, VA, before joining the team responsible for the opening of the Princeton Campus of Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner, and Smith, Inc. on Scudders Mill Road. She enjoyed a long career at Merrill Lynch, and later Bank of America, in Human Resources where she focused on Manager Training. She later joined the staff of Thompson Toyota in Doylestown, PA, where she made many wonderful friends and colleagues on that exceptional team. Countless family members, friends, and the community have heard Pat playing piano and guitar and singing over the years with her family. Aside from her career, she was a dedicated wife to Ed and a wonderful mother to Patty and Mackey. A highlight of her life was the recent wedding of her daughter Patty to David Dawson outdoors at a beautiful farm. At

that wedding, her son Mackey, a songwriter in his spare time, assembled his friends and launched the “Silo Boys” as a band unmatched in its talent. Pat was proud to be anointed their Number One fan. In addition to her love of family and music, Pat was famous for her baking and canning, and her homemade chocolate chip cookies and coffee cake were relished by all. She loved her collies, musicals, horseback rides, and singing duets with her sister Janie. She loved to drive out West with a car full of cousins on annual family trips. Pat is known to be the fountain of kindness that has fed a very large extended family, and will continue to serve as an inspiration of giving to family, her church, and the community at large. Pat will always be remembered for the music that brought joy to everyone around her, and which will forever be celebrated by those who knew and loved her. Pat grew up in the Nassau Presbyterian Church of Princeton, NJ, and was a member of the congregation of Deep Run Presbyterian Church of Perkasie, PA. The family wishes to thank the kind and loving staff at The Pennsylvania Hospital in Philadelphia and her doctors and nurses who cared for Pat as if she was one of their own. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made in her name to Davidson College in Davidson, North Carolina. Arrangements are under the direction of MatherHodge Funeral Home, Princeton.

A manicured boxwood garden greets guests in front, while the back is studded with flowering trees and enveloped by the privacy of protected land. The interior is traditional in style, but modern in function with a main floor master suite boasting all the bells and whistles, an airy central family room with huge fireplace and an open kitchen. $1,347,000 “Real estate has been the perfect profession for me, a lifelong Princetonian with a love of architecture and people.

HIRING A STAGER BRINGS ADDED VALUE TO YOUR HOME Creating a budget and an action plan creates cohesive space and ultimately adds value to your home. The WOW factor that an interior designer provides creates interest that brings offers. They are able to think outside the box and create vision for a buyer to see themselves moving in. Designers are up to date with current trends including paint color & finishes. They are trained to maximize, utility, efficiency and comfort. Another benefit is they tend to have a list of vendors that they work with, sometimes functioning as a liason which saves you both time and money. Before you decide who to hire be sure to ask for references and pictures of projects they have completed. This will give you a sense of their work and how their clients felt the project went.
