Princeton Schools Explore Reform Efforts for Discipline, Conflict Prevention, Equity
Inequity in school punishment and persistently high rates of suspension and expulsion for students of color and students with special needs have been a problem at many schools across the country and a controversial issue locally, including a complaint filed with the Princeton Civil Rights Commission just last January. Rutgers University Psychology Professor Anne Gregory, a national expert on the subject of restorative justice, equity in school discipline, and community-building will speak to a gathering Thursday, April 12 at 7 p.m. in the John Witherspoon Middle School (JWMS) auditorium. In a presentation co-sponsored by Princeton Public Schools, Princeton Special Ed PTO, Princeton High School PTO, JWMS PTO, Committed & Faithful Princetonians, Not in Our Town Princeton, Princeton Civil Rights Commission, Princeton Youth Advisory Committee, and Minority Student Achievement network, Gregory will discuss reform efforts in school discipline and programming to prevent conflict and intervene constructively once conflict has occurred. Gregory has focused her research on Continued on Page 10

Surveillance Footage Shows Troopers Shot Mielentz in Panera The New Jersey Attorney General’s office released footage Monday related to the March 20 shooting incident at the Panera Bread restaurant on Nassau Street. The video shows state troopers firing the shots that killed Scott L. Mielentz, the 56-year-old Lawrenceville man who entered the eatery that morning, wielding a BB pistol. “The shooting remains under investigation by the Attorney General’s Shooting Response Team (SRT),” reads a statement from the office. “However, certain records were released today in response to formal requests under the New Jersey Open Public Records Act and common law.” The records include footage from Panera’s surveillance system, 911 recordings, Computer-Aided Dispatch (CAD) reports, and information about the weapons involved. The video is posted online at http://bit.ly/2JvGpUk. On the tape, a man calls the Princeton Police Department at 10:28 a.m. saying, “There’s a guy with a gun at Panera.” Law enforcement officers from the local police department, the New Jersey State Police, and the FBI responded and attempted to negotiate with Mielentz for nearly five
hours. But he continued to hold the black pistol in his hand. In the video from Panera’s surveillance system, Mielentz pointed the pistol at officers. Two members of the State Police Technical Emergency and Mission Specialists (TEAMS) Unit, armed with M4 rifles, fired at him, striking him in the head and upper torso. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The weapon Mielentz was holding was later determined to be a black Crosman PFM BB pistol.
Mielentz was a former IT worker who is said to have suffered from medical, psychological, and financial problems. His motive in entering the restaurant with a gun has not been disclosed, but Princeton Police Chief Nick Sutter said after the incident that Mielentz was “a person in crisis.” After he entered the restaurant, which has since reopened, customers and staff were able to flee the building through a back door. Police secured the perimeter during the standoff, which lasted until just before 3 p.m. Continued on Page 8
Council Approves Budget for 2018, Hears Comments on Affordable Housing Princeton Council voted to adopt the $65 million budget for 2018 at its meeting on Monday night, April 9, first approving an amendment that would increase the use of surplus funds by $1 million. Of that $1 million, $626,000 is to pay down debt that was authorized in 2018. The remaining $372,000 reduces the tax levy, with no increase from last year to this year. Following the unanimous vote, Mayor Liz Lempert thanked members of the municipal staff and the Citizens Finance Advisory Committee (CFAC) for their work.
“Everybody always wants to put together a budget with no tax increase,” she said. “It’s easy to do that. It’s harder to put one together that’s responsible, and this is a responsible budget this year.” During the public comment period of the meeting, three residents urged Council to include the public in plans for how it is going to meet a court-ordered affordable housing requirement of 753 units. The town must submit its plans to the court by June 22. Mercer County Superior Court Judge Mary C. Jacobson ruled last month on Princeton’s requirement, also setting Continued on Page 10

For Schwartz, digging is the best part of her job. The historical society’s collection is larger and more extensive than most people realize. “I love to share that with people, and in a format that’s a little more personal than an exhibit on the wall,” she said. “It’s a great way for us to pull out our holdings and look at everything in the collection.” Why a show on transportation? “The fact that we still have the Dinky line here shows how significant Princeton is related to travel,” said Schwartz. “So many people in this area Princeton and culled from commute by train.

But Stephanie Schwartz, the Historical Society’s curator of collections and research, wants at least some of the show to be a surprise. “The idea is to take things that people might normally see in a museum exhibit, but have them out in the open,” she said. “It allows them to get really up close and personal with the materials. My favorite thing about this is that we have no labels, which makes it different from what people are used to. So visitors can guide the conversation. They can make observations, ask questions — I’m always there, but we will follow the lead of where the conversation goes.

cision-making to create a composition. From 7-8:30 p.m., faculty, students, and staff will showcase their work bridging engineering and the arts in the Forum of the Lewis Arts complex. The symposium will continue Friday at the Friend Center Convocation Room with the keynote address and panel discussions designed to “engage participants in a lively and forward-looking conversation about living at the intersection of engineering and the arts with researchers, artists, faculty, students, and professionals who create at or near this intersection,” according to Evelyn H. Laffey, senior associate director of CST. “People are really excited about this event,” Laffey said. “We thought it was time to bring these people together. So many of these faculty are more than their discipline or department labels. Part of the inspiration for this comes from courses we’ve developed in partnership with faculty and in supporting research that our faculty does.” She continued, “Many of these participants have collaborated for years, advancing their respective fields, but also pushing the boundaries towards new ways of doing dance, music, and engineering. Many of them have spoken at great length about how moving their collaboration has been.”
The four panel topics include Asking Questions; Taking Risks; Form Beyond Function; and Inspiration, Collaboration, and Pro cess, with the final panel presenting one example of an engineering-arts team that will discuss how they were inspired to collaborate, use processes within and across disciplinar y fields, advance their respective fields, and craft theoretical and physical spaces for working at the intersection of engineering and the arts. “Living at the Intersection” is designed to further CST’s mission to innovate and cultivate “opportunities to deepen and broaden participation in STEM [Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math]. Its mission “is founded on the belief that scientific and technological literacy are essential to responsible decision-making and innovation in the 21st century and help us make the world a better place.” CST also directs its efforts towards “ i m pr ov i n g t h e u n d e r standing of the fundamentals of STEM, exploring the societal impact of STEM, and investigating synergies between STEM and the arts, humanities, and social sciences.” All events in the two-day symposium are free and open to the public.

disparities in school discipline and the persistence of African American adolescents being suspended and expelled from other groups at higher rates than adolescents. S eek ing to highlight best practices in eliminating disparities, she advocates a restorative approach to discipline where schools engage in problem solving with youth around conflict, making classroom instruction more motivating and engaging, and integrating student voice in the discipline process. Her work has also focused on teacher professional development, program development, implementation, and evaluation. She has been widely published in book chapters and peerreviewed journal articles, and her research has been supported by federal agencies and private foundations. She served on the American Psychological Association’s Task Force on Resiliency and Strength in Black Children and Adolescents and consults with the U.S. Department of Justice on school discipline. Last January, 2017 Princeton High School graduate
Jamaica Ponder and her father Rhinold Ponder filed a complaint with the municipal civil rights commission claiming that Princeton Public Schools disproportionately suspend students of color, or with special needs. As reported by Planet Princeton, the complaint alleged that Jamaica Ponder was suspended and disciplined because of her race, gender, and advocacy for racial justice and equity. It also states that Ponder and her family were denied due process rights under school policy and state law throughout the suspension and appeal process. Ponder was suspended last June after she submitted a yearbook group photo including artwork in the background from her father’s art exhibit, “The Rise and Fall of The N-Word.” The picture was judged to have offensive language and images in its background. While 16 students were involved in creating the photo, only Jamaica, the only black person, was disciplined, according to the complaint. —Donald Gilpin

West Windsor’s obligation at 1,500 units. “Obviously, I understand it is still technically a process of litigation, which is important,” resident Sam Bunting told the governing body. “But I really don’t see any obstacle to at least starting the conversation. Some of us are going to be very supportive of the plan, if its good. But if your plan is to hold it back until the last possible moment, that will undermine the people who would support it, and build up resistance in the town.” Lempert told Bunting and two others representing The Princeton Progressive Action Group that she appreciated their comments, and that everyone on the Council has expressed similar sentiments. “We want this to be in the public as soon as we can,” she said. “We hear you and we’re doing our best to do our process as quickly as we can so that we can have a public conversation.” Earlier in the meeting, Lempert had reported that Council is “continuing to work on a sustainable smart growth plan that meets our affordable housing obligations, and we’re assessing available options. We will need to adopt our housing element and Fair Share plan in advance of submitting them to the court.” The issue will need to be discussed and approved in public, but there are still some details to work out, she said. Council passed a resolution to authorize a one-year professional services agreement with Banisch Associates, a Flemington-based civil engineering firm, for planning services regarding the affordable housing issue. Also approved was a resolution authorizing payment of $168,768 to Princeton Public Schools for hazardous busing transportation costs in the 2017-18 school year. —Anne Levin

Thereâ€™s a new trend in healthcare, and itâ€™s gaining momentum in our area. 0gAO`OV3[WZg5WZPS`b =`WUW\OZZg^cPZWaVSRW\>`W\QSb]\;OUOhW\S 2`0O`PO`O/0`]e\ZSTbO\R2`:g\\S09]aa]e]T>`W\QSb]\:WTSabgZS;SRWQW\S
or the past two years, Dr. Lynne B. Kossow and Dr. Barbara A. Brown of Princeton Lifestyle Medicine have offered their patients far more than the traditional primary care practice. Most doctors see 25-30 patients a day for an average of 15 minutes, but Drs. Kossow and Brown see six to eight patients a day for up to an hour. In addition to providing treatment for acute illnesses, the doctors act as their clientsâ€™ healthcare coaches through Lifestyle Medicine, a scientific approach to patient wellness by effecting changes in areas such as diet, physical activity, and stress management. With the current shortage of primary care physicians and the abundance of high volume practices, this type of individualized attention is rare. However, by switching to a concierge format, doctors like Kossow and Brown are able to practice medicine that consists of this broad-spectrum care. Concierge medicine, also known as retainer-based medicine, is an umbrella term for private medical care wherein patients pay an out-of-pocket fee in exchange for enhanced care. Born in the 1990s, concierge medicine was once thought of as a service for the wealthy that charged patients a lofty fee for luxury medicine. In recent years, it has evolved to accommodate patients across all income brackets, leading to expanding interest among patients and their primary care doctors. According to a survey released by the American Academy of Private Physicians at the AAPP 2015 Fall Summit, more than 45 percent of 862 independent physicians would consider a concierge or similar membership model in the next three years. This may be due in part to our aging population needing increased and varied medical services, leading to an imbalanced patient/doctor ratio. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act has increased the number of insured patients, putting a further strain on primary care doctors. As a result, physicians are often unable to dedicate enough time to each patient. In the hopes of increasing both job and patient satisfaction in a financially sustainable way, primary physicians like Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown are looking toward concierge medicine. â€œWhere conventional medicine is failing is in the prevention and reversal of chronic diseases that are becoming an epidemic in the United States today,â€? explain the doctors. â€œThe current insurance model is built upon a problembased economic reimbursement that encourages doctors to address medical problems very quickly. This leads to most doctors rushing to see 25-30 patients per day in order to make ends meetâ€ŚThis is not how we have ever practiced. We always want to have the time to address the root cause of diseases that are preventable today.â€? â€œFor the past two years, we have been offering our Lifestyle Medicine Concierge Program as an optional program for our patients,â€? they continue. â€œLifestyle Medicine is a 21st century approach to healthcare that consolidates the very best characteristics of traditional medicine with the profound impact of lifestyle behaviors on health. As our program grew, it became readily apparent to us that integrating Lifestyle Medicine into our internal medicine practice
was the best way for us to continue to provide exceptional careâ€Ś We feel that the concierge model is the only way to effectively [do that].â€? Concierge medical practices come in various forms, including those that reject insurance plans all together, but this is not the case for Princeton Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown accept insurance for all covered medical services. In addition, their patients pay an annual fee of $1,200 for the Lifestyle Medicine Concierge program, which gives them access to an elevated level of care. Trained at the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine at Harvard Medical School, the doctors are at the vanguard of their field, having lectured about their practice development model at The Institute of Lifestyle Medicine Conference in 2015. They are also members of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and the American College of Physicians. Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brownâ€™s practice is unique in that it offers patients comprehensive conventional medical care combined with lifestyle counseling. Patients interested in a natural approach to disease prevention are provided in-depth, individualized coaching based on their needs. The doctors can assist with everything from quitting smoking to creating a manageable diet and exercise plan. According to the doctors, this is an evidence-based practice that has been shown to prevent, reverse, or slow down heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, and some cancers. The concierge model offers Princeton Lifestyle Medicine patients additional benefits including access to the doctorsâ€™ emails, cell phone numbers, and private phone line, extended patient office visits, a one-hour consultation, and same or next day appointments. As a result, patients see Drs. Kossow and Brown not only as accomplished medical doctors, but health advocates, mentors, and even friends. â€œOur practice structure allows us to spend more time educating our patients about what may be going on with them medically,â€? the doctors explain. â€œWe are better able to work with them as partners in their care and advocate for them with their specialists or if they are in the hospital. We provide tremendous support and guidance to them and their caretakers or family. We are happy to have this enhanced communication with our patients. It allows us to make social visits when they are hospitalized at the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro so that we can stay in close touch while they are receiving care.â€? Concierge practices like Princeton Lifestyle Medicine focus the healthcare system on its most vital component: the patient-doctor relationship. The model emphasizes quality care instead of quick care, benefitting both parties. Dr. Brown and Kossow are now board certified as specialists in the practice of Lifestyle Medicine and are the only physicians in the Princeton area who are board certified in both Internal Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine. As leaders in both concierge and Lifestyle medicine, it comes as no surprise that Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown are at the forefront of this effort, bringing Princeton into the future of healthcare.

Noting Issues That Should Be Reviewed In Presentations for Bond Referendum
To the Editor: Ever mindful of the comment that there are lies, damned lies, and statistics, I have come across the following information. The Cranbury students make up about 17 percent of Princeton High School’s population. The high school facilities would not now and would not for at least 10 years be above capacity if the Cranbury students were not included in the high school population. Without the Cranbury students, there would be no need for an addition to the high school. Furthermore, the tuition rate per Cranbury student is about $17,200. According to the New Jersey Department of Education’s Guide to Education Spending, the budgeted costs amount per pupil in the Princeton Public Schools for 2016-2017 was $19,964. In addition, according to U.S. News, Princeton High School ranks sixth among 424 high schools in New Jersey. I have seen little of any of the above reviewed in presentations for the $137 million bond referendum. And there is little mention of how maintenance for expenses would significantly increase if the referendum covering the addition and reconfiguring of the high school is passed. It would be helpful to all voters if the above were discussed in detail before we are asked to approve the bond. PATRICIA A. TAYLOR Richard Court
the garden was available as a resource for teachers and students. Eve also made sure that the PTO supported the arts and music. One year the PTO funded an opera residency in collaboration with Opera New Jersey that culminated in an opera that the students wrote, produced, and performed in. She also spearheaded a fundraiser to acquire a piano for the school’s music department. Due to the enthusiasm with which parents greeted these programs, the PTO was able to not only expand the programs it offered but also to build up a surplus to use for future programming. In short, Eve took a good organization and made it even better, always mindful that every child should have the same opportunities as her own children. Eve would bring all of the qualities exemplified in her leadership of the PTO to the Princeton Council: an ability to engage with all members of a community; a zeal to include all; support for innovative approaches; and a commitment to the environment, the arts, and education. I urge all of you to join me in voting for Eve Niedergang in the Democratic Primary on June 5. JANE JEMAS Riverside Drive
to inspire me to this day, and I’m sure there are just as many more that I haven’t had the good fortune of meeting. It would be an incredible shame if that ability and that skill set could not be channeled into collective action on problems as difficult and as urgent as gun violence, but also issues like mental health, race, and privilege. Princeton has the opportunity to turn this energy into action. Imagine a community where things like violence, anxiety, masculinity, and their effects on people could be talked about in an open forum — students and adults alike. Imagine being an example for the rest of the country on how to make our schools safer not with guns or metal detectors, but teaching students how to be active and informed citizens. Survival of our students is far too low a bar to clear for a community I have seen so much from. Our goal should be for every student to flourish not only in the classroom, but as a person. Let us take advantage of the opportunity for reflection and bring students and young people to the table and have a discussion. ZACK DIGREGORIO William Livingston Court
Republicans Wishing to Participate in Democratic Princeton Board of Education Should Declare Primary Must Submit Declaration Form Today Total Moratorium on the Bond Issue For Now To the Editor:
To the Editor: We should all applaud the Princeton Board of Education’s decision to delay a vote on the proposed $137.1 million bond referendum. Now, we all must urge the Board to take the next difficult but important step: Declare a total moratorium on the bond issue for now. Let’s be clear. This call for a moratorium is not a judgment on the Board’s stewardship of public education in Princeton. Most of us who live and pay taxes in Princeton are proud of our schools and the teachers and administrators who serve our kids. But, we in New Jersey are in a financial crisis resulting from the Federal Income Tax Law of 2017. Until the legislature and governor can effect a workable and legal remedy, adding more bond debt is irresponsible. The 2017 Tax Law reduces the deduction for state and local taxes (SALT) to $10,000. For high tax states, like New Jersey, California, and New York, this is draconian and punishing – and may have been intentionally so – but it is the law. Governor Murphy may join with other states to fight this law but that outcome remains to be seen. For now, adding anything to the tax impact on assessed homes should be declared a non-starter. If the Board cannot step outside its own thinking on this issue, then, regrettably, voters must reject the referendum on October 2. The Princeton Board of Education is a non-partisan body and must stay out of politics. Instead, we citizens and voters must urge our state legislators and governor to come up with a reasonable solution that is sustainable in this new federal tax era and allows communities, like Princeton, to resume funding needed improvements.

The primary election to be held on June 5 for the two open Princeton Council seats will likely determine the ultimate winners in the November general election. Given that registered Democrats outnumber Republicans by five to one in Princeton, the Democratic Primary has produced the final general election outcome in recent council and mayoral elections. In reflecting on recent elections, some voters have expressed that they don’t have a voice in our local government. Many of the over 6,700 unaffiliated voters in Princeton may not realize that they can easily vote in the Democratic primary, either by changing their party affiliation prior to the election or by simply declaring that they would like to vote on the Democratic ticket at the polls on June 5.

Once Upon a Time in Memphis: Martin Luther King and William Faulkner Something is happening in Memphis, something is happening in our world. —Martin Luther King Jr., April 3, 1968 n the speech he delivered the night before the day he died, Martin Luther King imagined taking a “mental flight” across the Red Sea “through the wilderness on toward the promised land” to Greece and Mount Olympus, the Roman Empire, the Renaissance, then to Wittenberg and Martin Luther, to Lincoln signing the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, and to the 20th century, “the bankruptcy of the nation,” and Memphis, Tennessee. A “mental flight” more suited to my sense of the city where Chuck Berry’s Marie lives “high upon a ridge just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge” is the one Bob Dylan performs in “Stuck Inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again,” where you’ll find the circle-drawing ragman, Shakespeare in the alley, the French girl who knows you well, the stolen post office, Mona and the eyelid-smoking railroad man, grandpa shooting the fire full of holes on Main Street, the preacher, the rainman, Ruthie and her honky tonk lagoon, the Panamanian moon, and the neon madmen of Grand Street. Since I like to think this song is more about Memphis than Mobile, you’ll also find Sun Records, Stax Volt, W.C. Handy, Beale Street, the Blues, William Faulkner’s Miss Reba, and the haunted hotel where a spectral Elvis appears as the radio plays “Blue Moon” in Mystery Train, Jim Jarmusch’s timeless ode to Memphis. Motel to Museum Last week’s 50th anniversary of the assassination has brought Memphis back into the national conversation. With a population 64 percent black, 30 percent white according to a recent article in the New York Times (“The Triumphs and Trials of Memphis”), Memphis is the poorest large metropolitan area in the country, in spite of the presence of companies like UPS, FedEx, International Paper, AutoZone, an NBA franchise, and a tourism industry that attracts more than 11.5 million visitors every year, thanks to Elvis and Graceland and of course the National Civil Rights Museum established on the site of the April 4, 1968 assassination, the Lorraine Motel, which was named for owner Walter Bailey’s wife Loree and the song “Sweet Lorraine.” The Lorraine’s post-assassination fate mirrors the troubled history of the city. According to the New Yorker’s Allyson Hobbs, Loree Bailey suffered a stroke when she heard the shot, dying on April 9, the day of King’s funeral. Her husband kept the motel going through the 1970s, turning Room 306 into a memorial preserved exactly as it had been, but after Bailey declared bankruptcy in 1982, the Lorraine became a brothel and might have been sold at auction had not a Save the Lorraine group bought it and transformed it into the museum in 1991. Pyramid vs. Skyscraper As a 12-year-old dreamer fixated on cit-
ies and skyscrapers, I had a schoolboy crush on Memphis. There was poetry in the name, and associated names like Beale Street, Gayoso, Chickasaw, a newspaper called the Commercial Appeal, and above all the fact that Memphis boasted the Sterick building, the tallest in the South at the time. Many years ago I was in Memphis traveling for a publisher, my job to talk up textbooks in the humanities to teachers in colleges and universities from Alabama to North Dakota. The high point of my visit to Memphis State was the hou r I sp ent w it h a quadriplegic history professor named Marcus O r r. A mus e d to hear of my adolescent attraction to the glamour of skyscrapers li ke t he Ste rick building, the man in the wheelchair told me about the time he met with “the city fathers,” who were all excited ab out a new skyscraper that would top the Sterick by ten f loors. W hen Orr asked them how high, they said 37 stories, 430 feet, and didn’t believe him when he told them that the great pyramid located 12 miles from the ruins of place their city had been named for was 25 feet higher. Faulkner’s Memphis From my window at the Chisca Plaza Motor Hotel, adjacent to the original Chisca Hotel on Main Street just around the corner from the the Lorraine, I could see the neon lights of Beale Street, “in comparison with which Harlem is a movie set,” as Faulkner observes in Light in August (1932). In that novel, the Rev. Gail Hightower’s wife dies after jumping or falling “from a hotel window in Memphis.” Her fate is echoed in a legend about the Sterick building, which has been empty for decades and is said to be haunted by the ghost of a woman who jumped to her death “to save herself from a loveless marriage.” Although Faulkner doesn’t mention the Sterick by name in his 1930 story “Dull Tale,” it’s “one of four tall buildings” that “form an upended tunnel up which the diapason of traffic echoes as at the bottom of a well.” There, where “the trolleys swing
crashing and groaning down the hill at the clanging of bells,” Memphis is “almost a city,” with “the restless life and movement of cities; the hurrying and purposeful going to-and-fro, as though the atomic components were being snowed down within a given boundary, to rush in whatever escaping direction and vanish like snow, already replaced and unmissed.” Memphis Day and Night What may be the most striking view of Memphis in Faulkner’s fiction comes in Sanctuary (1931) when the ill-fated coed Temple Drake sees at the foot of the bluff below Main Street “a narrow street of smoke-grimed frame houses w it h t iers of wooden galleries, set a little back in grassless plots, with now and then a forlorn and hardy tree of s om e shabby species …. From the bluff, beyond a line of office buildings terraced sharply against the sunfilled s k y, c a m e a sound of traff i c — m otor horns, trolleys — pass ing high overheaed on the river breeze; at the end of the street a trolley materialised in the narrow gap with an effect as of magic and vanished with a stupendous clatter.” Then there’s the night music of a later passage about a couple of callow youths who unsuspectingly mistake Miss Reba’s brothel for a hotel: “They could hear the city, evocative and strange, imminent and remote; threat and promise both — a deep, steady sound upon which invisible lights glittered and wavered: colored coiling shapes of splendor in which already women were beginning to move in suave attitudes of new delights and strange nostalgic promises.” Of her recently departed guests, Miss Reba says, “I ain’t especially tender-hearted, but after all it ain’t no use in helping young folks to learn this world’s meanness until they have to.” Beale Street The photograph on the cover of Preston Lauterbach’s Beale Street Dynasty: Sex, Song, and the Struggle for the Soul of Memphis (W.W. Norton 2015) is from 1917, around the time “a young William
Faulkner heard the hidden history of the street” and “tales of Madam Mae Goodwin, a brothel keeper and a fence for black market diamonds.” Lauterbach pictures Faulkner as “bushy-haired and soft-spoken … with a pointy nose and dark eyes,” sporting “kneed-out trousers and threadbare coats.” Giving off “no indication of prosperity,” he looked like “a tag-along to his flashy chums. The girls didn’t work him too hard. When they did proposition young Faulkner, he played on his decidedly unsporty appearance, quipping, ‘No thank you, ma’am, I’m on my vacation,’” as if he were taking time off from a strenuous sex life. Another important American writer who makes a brief appearance in Beale Street Dynasty is Richard Wright. The future author of Native Son (1940) and Black Boy (1945) “lived in boarding houses throughout the Beale district from 1925 to 1927, working downtown in an optical factory.” Because blacks were not allowed to borrow books from the public library, Wright had to forge notes from a white co-worker in order to read H. L. Mencken, Theodore Dreiser, Sherwood Anderson, and Sinclair Lewis, all of whom influenced his later work. In Uncle Tom’s Children (1938), he describes how he would stand at the check-out desk, “hat in hand, looking as unbookish as possible … No doubt if any of the white patrons had suspected that some of the volumes they enjoyed had been in the home of a Negro, they would not have tolerated it for an instant.” The St. Louis in Memphis Blues Again There’s an amusing reflection of Dylan’s Mobile/Memphis dynamic in the fact that W.C. Handy’s most famous composition, “The St. Louis Blues,” was written in Memphis. After the First World War, Handy’s blues became, in Lauterbach’s words, “a cultural password for a new age,” speaking to the “lost generation” of artists grappling with “the experiences of war.” F. Scott Fitzgerald referenced “Beale Street Blues” by name in The Great Gatsby while William Faulkner “subtly evoked ‘St. Louis Blues’ in the title of his story ‘That Evening Sun,’ and George Gershwin inscribed sheet music for ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ to Handy, saying thanks I couldn’t have done it without you.” A Great Singer The music of history is in Martin Luther King’s last speech at the Mason Temple in Memphis about the mountaintop and the promised land and “not fearing any man.” If you’ve witnessed the hair-raising power of his voice when he’s at the rhetorical top of his bent — as a speaker, he was a grπeat singer — you can imagine the music he made of those last words. If you stand in the corridor outside Room 306 at the National Civil Rights Museum, you’ll hear the recorded voice of Mahalia Jackson singing, among other things, “Take My Hand, Precious Lord,” the spiritual he asked to be performed the night of his last speech. —Stuart Mitchner

Grafton and Goodman Discuss Judaism April 17
Martin Goodman and Anthony Grafton will be at Labyrinth Books on Tuesday, April 17 at 6 p.m. to talk about Goodman’s book, A History of Judaism : From Its Origins to the Present ( Princeton Univ. Press $39.95). Julia Neuberger of the Literary Review calls A History of Judaism “a hugely welcome addition to the library of Jewish studies for the general reader and an absolute godsend for rabbis always perplexed by what book they should recommend to people about how Jewish beliefs and practices have evolved. Goodman has done both Jews and non-Jews a great service with this book, encapsulating most of Jewish thought over four millennia in one ext raordinar ily readable volume.” Martin Goodman is professor of Jewish studies at the University of Oxford, where he is president of the Oxford Centre for Hebrew and Jewish Studies. His books include Rome and Jerusalem: The Clash of Ancient Civilizations and The Oxford Handbook of Jewish Studies. Anthony Grafton

Bill Ayers and Rick Ayers will be discussing their book You Can’t Fire the Bad Ones: And 18 Other Myths about Teachers, Teachers’ Unions, and Public Education ( Penguin Random House $16) , co-authored w it h Cr ys t a l L au r a, on Wednesday, April 11 at 6 p.m. at Labyrinth Books. Jonathan Kozol, author of Rachel and Her Children, Savage Inequalities, and Amazing Grace says the book is “an artful and meticulous dissection of the interlocking web of myths and lies about our public schools that have been aggressively promoted by private-sector forces, right-wing politicians, and collusive neoliberals over the most recent 15 years. I hope it will be widely read by ever yone who loves and treasures children.” Bill Ayers is an author, activist, and educator whose previous books include To Teach : The Jour ney of a Teacher and Teaching Toward Freedom : Moral Commitment and
Ethical Action in the Classroom. Rick Ayers is an educator and the author of An Empty Seat in Class: Teaching and Learning After the Death of a Student, and, with William Ayers, Teaching the Taboo: Courage and Imagination in the Classroom. ———

Best-Selling Author McCrea will be discussing At Washington Crossing Russell’s book Tact: AesWashington Crossing Historic Park in Pennsylvania will host New York Times best-selling author Andrea Wulf on Sunday, April 15 at 2 p.m. at the park’s visitor center. Wulf will discuss her book, The Invention of Nature, which chronicles the life of Prussian naturalist, explorer, and geographer Alexander von Humboldt. The book makes the case that von Humboldt created a vision of nature as one interconnected system that would later influence scientists, activists, and the public. In fact, on a visit to the United States, he visited the White House to discuss science and politics with Thomas Jefferson, who was inspired by von Humboldt’s life work. Wulf trained as a design historian at the Royal College of Art in London and is now a full-time, award-winning writer. She is the author of five books and has written for the New York Times, the Atlantic, the Wall Street Journal, and the Guardian, among others. Ticket options for the lecture are: $15 per person for admittance to the lecture only; $35 per person for the lecture, entry into a w ine and cheese
thetic Liberalism and the Essay Form in 19th Century Britain (Princeton Univ. Press $35) at L abyrinth Books on Thursday, April 12 at 6 p.m. According to Isobel
Armstrong, author of Novel Politics: Democratic Imaginations in NineteenthCentury Fiction, “This is a momentous book. Tact, with its derivation from touch, becomes, for Russell, the art of feeling one’s way, an aesthetic, ethical, and political praxis that enables him to reclaim the essay as the core form, democratic and egalitarian, of 19th-century culture. Moving from Lamb, through Mill, Arnold, Eliot, and Pater, to the 20th-century incarnation of tact in the work of Marion Milner, Russell challenges our reading of major figures.” David Russell is associate
professor of English at the University of Oxford and a tutorial fellow of Corpus Christi College. Barry McCrea currently is visiting professor in the Humanities Council at Princeton University. He is professor of English and romance languages and literatures, at the University of Notre Dame and the author of The First Verse: a Novel, as well as of Languages of the Night: Minor Languages and the Literary Imagination in 20th Century Ireland and Europe. This event is co-sponsored by Princeton University’s Humanities Council.

Mercer County Communit y College’s ( MCCC’s ) James Kerney Campus Gallery (JKCG ) in downtown Trenton has announced the opening of “America in a Trance,” an exhibit by photographer Niko J. Kallianiotis, whose images of life in small Pennsylvania towns capture a fading picture of the American dream. The show runs from Thursday, April 12 through Thursday, May 10. On Wednesday, April 18, JKCG invites the community to an artist’s talk and reception with Kallianiotis from 5 to 7:30 p.m. The talk will begin at 5:30 p.m. JKCG is located in MCCC’s Trenton Hall, 137 North Broad Street, across the street from the Kerney Building. Additional hours for this exhibit will be posted on the JKCG website: www.mccc. edu/JKCgallery. Kallianiotis was born in Greece, but im m ig rated to Scranton, Pa., 20 years ago. Since t hen he has crisscrossed the state, taking numerous photographs of Pe n n s ylv a n ia’s s m a l l towns, including Scranton, Aliquippa, Lehighton, and many places in between. He notes that he came to America with visions of prosperity and vibrancy based on Hollywood movies. But what he discovered was something very different. He has seen abandonment of buildings that once were sites of prosperous factories. He has seen casinos rising where industry once thrived. More recently, he has observed parallels between the troubled economy of his home country and the one in Pennsylvania: rising unemployment, a glut of services, and no industry. Now, he has turned those photos into the project he calls “America in a Trance.”
two original works completed since March 2016 in any media except photography. Drop-off is on May 12 between 9:30 a.m. and noon. This year, the gallery is also providing early drop-off on Thursday, May 10, noon to 3 p.m. Judging and pick-up of unaccepted works takes place May 12. An entry fee of $10 for one piece or $15 for two must accompany the entries. A list of accepted artworks will be posted at 3 p.m. outside the Gallery on May 12 and also posted on a website provided to all entrants. Works that are not accepted for the show should be picked up between 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. The juror for this year’s show is Philadelphia artist and curator Alexis Nutini. Born in Mexico City, Nutini received an MFA in printmaking from the Tyler School of Art in 2005 and a BA in fine art from St. Mary’s College of Maryland in 2000. He completed a Fulbright Fellowship in Barcelona, Spain, in 2001. Nutini is an adjunct professor at the Tyler School of Art and is a member of Napoleon, a collectively-run project space. He runs Dos Tres Press, a print shop in South Philadelphia, where he produces limited edition woodcuts and collaborative print based projects. The exhibit opens to the public on Monday, May 21 and runs through Monday, July 9. An opening reception takes place Wednesday, May 23 from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Representatives from the college, the Mercer County Cultural and Heritage Commission, and the West Windsor Arts Council will be on hand to announce more than $1,000 in purchase and merit prizes.

T h e f i l m is bas e d on “Blaze” Featured at the memoir Living in the Jim Thorpe Film Festival
UNDER FIRE: The 2nd Annual Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival’s April 12 opening night feature film is “Blaze,” co-written and directed by Ethan Hawke, starring Ben Dickey, Alia Shawkat, Josh Hamilton, and Charlie Sexton. “Blaze” is inspired by the life of Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spawned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film is based on the memoir “Living in the Woods in a Tree: Remembering Blaze,” by Rosen, who also co-wrote the screenplay.
Piano Teachers Forum on April 13
The Piano Teachers Forum (PTF) will hold its next monthly meeting on Friday, April 13 at 9:45 a.m. (coffee at 9:15 a.m.) at Jacobs Music, 2540 Br u ns w ick Pike in Lawrenceville. Betty Stoloff will present “Dovetailing Methods and Piano Repertoire.” One day your student is playing “Take Off” and “Landing” from Time to Begin and in a blink of an eye this same student is playing “Etude, Op. 10 No. 3” of Chopin — how did it happen?
What appears to be seamless for the student is a carefully plotted out plan of sequential materials. This presentation will explore the intricate weaving of moving through the methods and appropriate supplementary pieces to the heart of the piano repertoire. For this year’s full program calendar, and other information about the Piano Teachers Forum, visit the website at www.pianoteachersforum. org, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Visitors are welcome to attend PTF programs for a $20 guest fee at the door.

Woods in a Tree: Remembering Blaze, by Rosen, who also co-wrote the screenplay. Blaze was filmed in Louisiana and had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January, and its second screening at SXSW in March. Blaze stars musician and first-time actor Ben Dickey in the title role, which won him the Sundance Special Jury Award for Achievement in Acting. Dickey will present Blaze in person on April 12 at the Mauch Chunk Opera House in Jim Thorpe, Pa., then play a live music set with his band, the Beaver Bayou Boys at the Mauch Chunk Opera House after the Blaze screening. JTIFF directors Todd Morris and Jocelyn O’Neil are thrilled to have such a prestigious Sundance-winning production launch the fourday festival, now in its second year. Said Morris: “We are so excited and honored to have Ethan Hawke’s beautiful film, BLAZE, kick off the second year of JTIFF and to have the artist who actually plays Blaze Foley introduce the film and perform live music from the soundtrack immediately after the screening.”
The 2nd Annual Jim Thorpe Independent Film Festival’s April 12 opening night feature film is Blaze (2018 ), co-written and directed by Ethan Hawke, starring Ben Dickey, Alia Shawkat, Josh Hamilton, and Charlie Sexton. Blaze is inspired by the life of Blaze Foley, the unsung songwriting legend of the Texas outlaw music movement that spaw ned the likes of Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. The film weaves together three different periods of time, braiding re-imagined versions of Blaze’s past, present, and future. The different strands explore his love affair with Sybil Rosen; his last, dark night on earth; and the impact his songs and death had on his fans, friends, and foes. The braided storyline terminates in a bittersweet ending that acknowledges Blaze’s profound highs and lows, as well as the impressions he made on the people who shared his journey.

“Rhythm of the Dance” At McCarter Theatre
at 5:30 p.m., Boheme Opera NJ brings two tales of love betrayed to Kendall Main Stage Theatre at The College of New Jersey Center for the Arts, 2000 Pennington Road in Ewing. Virtual sets by J. Matthew Root, recalling the Italian experience in Trenton’s Chambersburg, will heighten the intensity of this production, to be sung in Italian with projected English supertitles. Pre-curtain talks with musical themes will be offered one hour prior. Pietro Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Ruggero Leoncavallo’s I Pagliacci are often paired together as a verismo (true-life) matched set with music and characters that reflect present-day love relationships. Based on a play by Giovanni Verga, Cavalleria Rusticana was written as a contest entry in 1890 and won first prize, receiving 60 curtain calls at its premiere in Rome. I Pagliacci was based on a case that the composer’s father, a judge, had tried, using a play-within-a-play concept to expose an illicit affair, with its 1892 premiere in Milan. Reminiscing about the long-time association of Boheme Opera with the Italian-American

In addition to classical Chinese dance, highlights of the program include various Chinese folk dances representing a wide range of ethnic groups such as Tibet, Han, Zhuang, and others.

Gamers Search for Easter Egg in Virtual Reality Adventure
t is 2045, a time when the planet has devolved into a desolate dystopia that is a combination of pollution, overpopulation, poverty, corruption, and global warming. Most of humanity lives in slums where they escape their misery by disappearing, via virtual reality, into the Oasis, a parallel universe co-created by James Halliday (Mark Rylance) and Ogden Morrow (Simon Pegg). Halliday is now in control of Oasis and Morrow is no longer associated with the firm. The picture’s point of departure is an unrecognizable Columbus, Ohio, that is a devastated metropolis that has been reduced to a wasteland of vertical “stacks,” i.e. mobile homes that are piled on top one another. We meet Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan), who is an orphaned teen who has been taken in by his Aunt Alice (Susan Lynch). Wade’s a gamer who goes by his online avatar Parzival. His best friend is Aech (Lena Waithe), although they’ve never actually met. In this world everyone prefers escaping into the Oasis instead of facing the post-apocalyptic squalor that is reality. A glimmer of hope of a way to escape appears in the will left behind by the recently-deceased Halliday. In a video, he announces a treasure hunt for an Easter egg that is hidden in the Oasis. The finder will not only be awarded control of the company Oasis, but will also
inherit half a trillion dollars. So, Wade forms the High Five, a team comprised of him, Aech, Art3mis (Olivia Cooke), and siblings Sho (Philip Zhao) and Daito (Win Morisaki). Of course, millions of other “Gunters” (egg hunters) join in the search, and the chief competitor is Innovative Online Industries (IOI), a video game conglomerate run by Nolan Sorrento (Ben Mendelsohn), who has a mammoth army of indentured players at his disposal. However, trust Steven Spielberg to work his movie magic. After establishing that implausible challenge, Ready Player One takes off at a dizzying pace, with the legendary director even including a romance between Wade and Art3mis. Wade has a big cyber crush on her even though he has no idea what she looks like in real life. She likes him, too, but hides behind her avatar, because she has a big birthmark on her face. The movie is vintage Spielberg! Excellent (HHHH). Rated PG-13 for action, violence, bloody images, suggestive material, partial nudity, and profanity. Running time: 140 minutes. Production Studios: Amblin Entertainment/Village Roadshow Pictures/ Reliance Entertainment/De Line Pictures/Farah Films & Management. Distributor: Warner Brothers Pictures. —Kam Williams
SUCCESS!: Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan, left), together with the other members of his group High Five, have found the Easter egg in the virtual world of Oasis and is receiving the key to the company and a half trillion dollars from the image of the deceased James Halliday (Mark Rylance).

PU Men’s Lax Tops Stony Brook to End Skid, Fueled by Sowers’ Spectacular 9-Point Effort
ven though Michael Sowers was playing in just the 24th game of his career with the Princeton University men’s lacrosse team when the Tigers hosted Stony Brook last Saturday, the 5’8, 165-pound dynamo already looms large in program history. As a freshman, Sowers set a Princeton single-season record with 82 points on 41 goals and 41 assists in 15 appearances. Through the first eight games of the 2018 season, the native of Dresher, Pa. had tallied 14 goals and a nation-best 31 assists, becoming the fastest Princeton player ever to reach the career century mark in points when he achieved that feat in the fourth game. Despite Sowers’ heroics, Princeton entered the game against Stony Brook mired in a three-game losing streak. “We knew we had the talent, we just had to execute the coaches’ plan,” said Sowers, reflecting on Princeton’s mindset as it prepared to face the Seawolves. “It was more of just believing in ourselves and just having confidence.” The Tigers executed from the get-go on Saturday, jumping out to a 6-2 lead after the first quarter with Sowers contributing a goal and four assists. “If we were going to come
out here and be successful, we had to be flying around,” said Sowers. “We were playing at 100 speed all day, all the time, which is crucial for us.” Sowers kept flying around the field, ending up with four goals and five assists to match his single-game career-high of nine points as the Tigers cruised to a 16-8 win, improving to 4-5. “That is just the offense, some days it will be me, some days it will be [Austin] Sims, some days it will be Riley [Thompson].” Coach [Pat] March does a good job of putting us in spots to be successful,” said Sowers, who has now scored nine points in games on four occasions so far in his career. “I just had to make simple plays, I was lucky to do it. I know that if I just follow coach March’s plan, we are going to be successful. At the end of the day, getting a win is all that matters.” With the Tigers getting four goals apiece from both Sims and freshman Chris Brown, along with two from freshman Luke Crimmins and one piece from sophomore Philip Robertson and senior Riley Thompson, the Princeton offense displayed plenty of balance. “You see it in practice all the time and I think for us it was just a matter of coming out and doing it,” said
Sowers. “I don’t think we have put together a full game but I think today was pretty close to it.” Sowers has looked to do more talking on the field this season in the wake of the graduation of battle-tested stars Gavin McBride and Zach Currier. “Last year with Gavin [McBride], I didn’t really have to do that; I was able to sit behind him and Zach [Currier],” said Sowers. “This year with those guys gone, Simsy and I have taken the leadership role, being able to direct guys on the field a little bit.” Princeton head coach Matt Madalon can’t say enough about what Sowers is doing for the Tigers. “Michael did a really good job,” said Madalon. “Every game he plays here, he gets better and better. He is a real special one.” For the Tigers, defeating Stony Brook was really important. “The mindset here was that we wanted to get back in the win column; it was really just execute,” said Madalon. “We made some mistakes down the stretch against Brown [a 14-13 loss on March 31] that burned our guys. They weren’t going to let that define them. They said we are going to be a team that is going to finish.
The message I sent out to our guys today was that it was the best job we have done all year listening and executing. I know the guys hear us but to be able to put it into the execution was very good.” Madalon was particularly happy to see the execution he got from some of his younger players, including freshmen Brown and Crimmins along with sophomore midfielder Connor McCarthy. “It is a really good sign to see young guys stepping up, our first two middies this game were a freshman and sophomore in McCarthy and Crimmins,” said Madalon. “We were really happy at their performance.” Another good sign for Princeton was sharper play on face-offs and clears. “It was part of the execution; our systems aren’t changing so we are just playing a lot better within them,” said Madalon, whose team won 18-of-27 face-offs and was successful on all 14 clear attempts. “It was good to get back into the win column.” Madalon is looking for his squad to pile up more wins as it was slated to play at Siena on April 10 before hosting Dartmouth on April 14. “Losing is tough; it hurts the spirits,” said Madalon. “You get a couple of those losses and you start doubting yourself a little bit. I think it was nice to just have these guys play well; it was good for the guys.”
MIGHTY MIKE: Princeton University men’s lacrosse player Michael Sowers looks for an opening in recent action.

For the Princeton University softball team, its loss to Dartmouth in the second game of a three-game set with the Big Green last weekend served as a microcosm of a rough start to the 2018 campaign. The Tigers jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning in the contest on Friday and then, af ter sur render ing three runs, battled back to make it a 3-3 ballgame heading into the four th. Dar t mout h, t hough, an swered with two runs in the top of the next frame and added one each in the last three innings to pull away to a 8-6 win. “We let the moment get bigger than it truly is in the pressure situations,” said Princeton head coach Lisa Van Ackeren, whose team fell 12-1 in the finale against Dartmouth to end the weekend at 5-20 overall and 3-6 Ivy League. “We have to figure out how to stop the bleeding. It is key for us to figure out how to be tough and stable and recognize when somebody just needs to step up with a big play here and that
we are going to be OK.” Van Ackeren is seeing good mental toughness from freshman pitcher Allie Reynolds, who got the weekend off to a good start by hurling a three-hit shutout in a 6-0 victory. “Allie has got the makings to be a really, really strong pitcher for us; she has gotten a ton of time under her belt as a freshman,” said Van Ackeren, noting that junior hurler Riley Wilkinson has been sidelined by injury. “ S h e h a s s te p p e d u p and she has been emotionally steady, which is what we need. She is not really fazed by much. You walk to the field and you never know what the score is from watching her play. That is the mark of a really strong, composed pitcher. She has done a really good job for us in some really tough situations.” Kaylee Grant, Mackenzie Meyer, and Allison Harvey all had their moments at the plate against the Big Green over the weekend. Junior Grant went 2-for- 4 w ith two runs scored and two RBIs in the doubleheader on

Friday while freshman Meyer slugged a two-run homer in the second game and junior Harvey went 4-for7 with two runs and three RBIs on Friday. “Kaylee has struggled a little bit early on just to find her groove, but she always trusts the process,” said Van Ackeren. “She is one of those kids who doesn’t abort the plan and just continues to fight for it. Mackenzie has been such a good spark for us in so many ways this year. She is such an energy kid, she is the most excited kid to play everyday. Harvey has been Harvey, I think that is what she expects of herself. She wants to come up in the RBI situations, she wants to compete.” Ju n ior c atcher Keeley Walsh has given the Tigers some competitive fire. “Keeley is such a great influence on the whole team, she is as as steady as they come,” said Van Ackeren of Walsh, who is hitting .319 with two homers and 10 RBIs on the season. “She has done such a good job in a really difficult situation. She cares so much about our pitchers. After every game, regardless of her own performance, she is coming up and saying what can we do, how can we get better.” In the view of Van Ackeren, improved pitching is the key to Princeton playing better going forward. “It starts in the circle, if I said anything else I would be lying,” said Van Ackeren, whose staff has a 7.14 ERA. “It is big part of what we do. You look at any successful team and they all have strong pitching or stable pitching. That is what we are tasking our pitching staff with, trying to do whatever it takes to figure things out individually.You have to separate what has happened in the past and commit to only being forward thinking and progressive-minded.” The Tigers also need to take a stronger approach at the plate. “We need our offense to have quality at-bats; we have not gave that consistently through our lineup,” said Van Ackeren, “We will have a really good first inning and really good seventh inning and there is kind of a lull in between where we lose our commitment to having quality at bats. I think if we do that, we would put a little more pressure on opposing pitchers.” With Pr inceton hav ing won two straight Ivy League titles, Van Ackeren believes her squad has what it takes to move up the standings and finish in the top two to earn a spot in the league’s championship series. “We are couple of games away from becoming the team we know we can be,” maintained Van Ackeren, whose team plays a threegame set at Yale next weekend with a doubleheader on April 14 and a single game on April 15. “The good part about it is that we are in a situation where there is a ton of parity in the league. It has been all over the place. It is anybody’s race and I think our guys know that. It is just a matter of focusing on ourselves and controlling what we can control.” —Bill Alden
PU Men’s Heavyweights Win Childs Cup, Bringing 6-0 Record Into Clash at Harvard In building the Princeton Universit y men’s heav yweight rowing squad into one of the deepest programs in the nation, Greg Hughes has focused more on instilling a work ethic than stockpiling athletes. “It is not just about your talent and abilit y, it is about development,” said Princeton head coach Greg Hughes. “It is one of those i nt a ng ible t h i ng s ab out sports that we as a society learn. It doesn’t come down to a one-off or just getting lucky. Consistent, steady, day-to-day hard work over time will yield results.” Princeton has been seeing tangible results, with the top boat medaling four straight years at the Eastern Sprints and the Tigers winning the event’s Rowe Cup in two of the last three years given to the program that piles up the most points in all boats. On the national stage, Princeton’s varsity eight placed in the top four in the Intercollegiate Rowing Association championship regatta as well in each of the last four years. Last Saturday, as it hosted the Childs Cup regatta on Lake Carnegie, the Tigers displayed depth, winning all five races in the competition. Hughes credits senior captain Augustin Wambersie with setting a tone of diligence throughout the squad. “Augustin is one of those kind of guys who is a quiet leader; he is not the person that stands there in front of
a big group and has a lot to say,” said Hughes. “When he does speak, it is always really good. He has got a good head for sport and he is a great leader. He is one of those hard, quiet workers and very consistent. That has been really great to have.” It is great for Princeton to have a number of other good senior leaders, including Tom George, Will Chance, Leo Toch, and Tim Livingstone. “Tom raced last summer as the senior world championships in the men’s pair and he was the only U.S. college kid to make the A final,” said Hughes. “Will came here effectively as a novice and has worked his way up the ranks. He is just doing a great job and made real improvements through all of those year. Leo has been rowing up in the bow seat in the varsity. He made his way up through the third varsity and the second varsity and now he is in the varsity. Tim has done a really good job. Last year was a little bit harder for him, but he learned from it and he has made real improvements. We needed some guys prepared to step up and play a role and they have. It is still early obviously, there are big races to come. It has been a fun group to coach.” It has been fun for Hughes to welcome in a special group of freshmen to the program. “There are a lot of talented guys in this year’s
freshman class who are doing a great job in the 2V, 3V, 4V mix which has been awesome,” said Hughes. “It always takes time; it is a big step up from high school to college. Those guys have been doing a nice job developing. That has been a big part of our focus this spring, to put those guys in lots of different situations and give them all all the chance to learn and step up.” Hughes liked the way his rowers stepped up last Saturday across the board. “It was a solid effort for all of the boats,” said Hughes, whose top boat posted a winning time of 6:03.9 over the 2,000-meter course in improving to 6-0 with Penn taking second in 6:09.2 and Columbia coming in third at 6:12.8. “The varsity got the job done. It was also an opportunity for us to get a look at things that we need to work on. Those guys have a good head for that, so we were able to dissect that race and think about this week and what we want to work on and prepare for as we get ready for the ones to come.” The Tigers have a big race coming up this weekend as they face Harvard in Cambridge, Mass. on April 14 in the race for the Compton Cup. “It is pretty simple. It is about execution and putting up our best performance,” said Hughes. “I tend not to get caught up in opponents. There are nine people in our boat and we are going to make sure that is what is firing and get ready to go.” —Bill Alden

Having scored a total of six goals in losing its first two games this season, the Princeton High boys’ lacrosse team was looking to break out when it hosted Pennington last Thursday. “We are just working to come together on offense,” said PHS junior attackman Alex Park. “We have a couple of guys returning and we are trying to build up the young guys and get on the same page.” After PHS fell behind Pennington 1-0, Park helped get the Little Tigers on the right page. Junior Evan Filion got the Little Tigers in the board with 6:38 left in the first quarter and Park followed
with a tally 24 seconds later to put PHS up 2-1. “We got some good spacing, it is our offense working as a unit,” said Park, reflecting on his goal. “That is where we need to go and that is what we are doing.” PHS kept going offensively, pulling away to a 10-2 victory to break into the win column. “It was great, it was a great confidence booster,” said Park in assessing the triumph which saw him add a fourth quarter goal. “We had a great practice yesterday; we worked on our offense a lot. I love seeing the improvement that we made. It took us a while but

we got clicking. We shared the ball, our goals were distributed. We still have work to do; I like where we are going.” Park has worked hard to be a better player. “I play for the Blue Star club program,” said Park. “I think that has helped me with communicating on the field with the guys.” PHS head coach Chip Casto believes Park is going to be a big help for his squad this spring. “Alex works in the weight room and he is a club player, so he is committed,” said Casto. “He plays hard every game.” While Casto was happy to see his team post its first victory, he acknowledged that it needs to be much sharper. “It is always good to get a win, we have been working on the basics but there were still a lot of mistakes,” said Casto, who also got two goals apiece from Filion and freshman Patrick McDonald with Jay Jackson, Ben Drezner, Ben Quinones, and Dyan Westerman adding one each. “We were executing basic stuff, things that I think we should have been doing already. This team is a different team from last year, so they are moving in their own pace.” Senior tri-captains Ryan Farrell, Ian Jacobs, and Patrick Jacobs did some good stuff as the defensive end for the Little Tigers against Pennington. “It is senior heav y, we h ave g ot g o o d b a la n c e there,” said Casto. “As long as they are disciplined and poised, they can really help control things.” Going for ward, PHS is looking to develop more discipline when it comes to the basics. “We need to keep building the foundational blocks to success,” said Casto, whose squad moved to 1-3 with a 6-3 loss at Monroe on Saturday and is slated to host Montgomery on April 14 before playing at WW/P-North on April 16. “Tomorrow will just be banging away at the fundamentals that we need to build on to have success.” Park, for his part, believes the Little Tigers can enjoy success this spring if they keep things simple. “We just need to be playing as a team and moving the ball,” said Park. “I think we can play well together.” —Bill Alden

If you get open, he will definitely find you. That has made it a lot easier for me.” While Bennett is encouraged by PDS’ 3-1 start, he knows that there is room for improvement. “We have played really well in the first half against the big teams,” said Bennett. “But in the second half, our numbers have shown that we have gotten a little tired, so I think being able to finish games and staying strong for all four quarters is a big focus. It is getting away from that weariness in the fourth quarters and being able to still win face-offs to get the ball and run our offense.” —Bill Alden

Led by Scoring Outburst From Junior Star Cook, Hun Girls’ Lacrosse Rolls to 15-4 Win Over Stuart Zoe Cook didn’t waste any time setting the tone for the Hun School girls’ lacrosse team as it played at Stuart Country Day last Friday. The junior attacker tallied four goals and two assists as Hun built an 8-1 lead over the Tartans by halftime and never looked back on the way to a 15-4 win. “It was a really fast paced and I think we were really pumped up,” said Cook. “We had a really good practice yesterday; we were all on the same page. We really wanted to hit our stride early in the season and I think we accomplished that.” With Hun coming off a tough 16 - 4 loss to Lawrenceville two days earlier, Cook was pumped up to bounce back. “After that game I was fired up and really excited to get back out here,” said
Cook, who ended up with five goals and three assists against Stuart. As one of Hun’s most experienced players on attack, Cook is looking to shoulder more responsibility on the field. “I really li ke feed ing, I think that is one of my strong suits,” said Cook. “I try to make plays, I try to get my voice up so I can call for plays.” Cook is just one voice from her family on the Hun squad as the team’s head coach is her mother, Liz Cook, and her older sister, Josie, is a senior defender and team captain for the Raiders. “My mom has always been my coach, so I am used to it,” said Cook. “I don’t treat her like my mom, I treat her like a coach when I am on the field. I like that aspect; she pushes me to be the best I can.”
ATTACK MODE: Hun School girls’ lacrosse player Zoe Cook races to goal in a game earlier this season. Last Friday, junior star attacker Cook tallied five goals and three assists to help Hun defeat Stuart Country Day 15-4. The Raiders, who dropped to 2-3 with a 10-7 loss to Princeton High on Monday, host Peddie on April 11 before playing at Blair Academy on April 14.
On the field, Cook has developed a connection with her sister. “We click pretty well,” said Cook. “When she is transitioning, I am right there with her. It is really fun to play with her.” Hun head coach Cook liked the way the Raiders clicked in the win over Stuart. “We built a lot of confidence in this game; we were catching and throwing a little better,” said Cook. “We had a great practice yesterday. We bounce back pretty quickly.” Cook credited her younger daughter with serving as a catalyst for the Hun offense. “Zoe was on today; she came out firing today,” said Cook. “She was feeling a little defeated from Lawrenceville and wanted to bounce back a little bit.” A lot of Hun players were firing away against Stuart as Kiera Black scored two goals while Emily Albanese, Hannah Bunce, Josie Cook, Grace Davis, Renee Nearing, and Sophie Tarditi added one apiece. “I think that was a real confidence booster for them to be able to trust each other and have other people score than the two or three main scorers we have had in the past,” said Cook. In Cook‘s view, the balanced scoring reflected a growing team unity. “Yesterday we were saying that we wanted to be a united team, and that a team that is united can beat a team with talent,” said Cook, whose team dropped to 2-3 with a 10-7 loss to Princeton High on Monday and will host Peddie on April 11 before playing at Blair Academy on April 14. “We want to be that true family. They really get along great together and they are truly happy for each other. We always talk about getting to play lacrosse and not having to play lacrosse. That is our focus on the season and whatever benefits come from it we will be excited about.” The younger Cook is excited about Hun’s potential this spring. “We have a pretty competitive schedule and I think we will do well,” asserted Cook. “Our clears and transitions can get a little messy. We need to work on stick skills. If we get that down, I think we can be a stronger team.” —Bill Alden

Senior Mundenar Shooting for Special Finish As PDS Girls’ Lax Learns From Early Losses Madison Mundenar helped the Princeton Day School girls’ lacrosse team start on the right foot as it hosted Allentown last week. Just minutes into the April 3 contest, senior star Mundenar raced down the field, gathering in a feed from Gwen Allen and firing it into the back of the net to give the Panthers a 1-0 lead. “We always say get out of the gate, and that is something we felt we did better this game than when went against Hill,” said Mundenar. Things didn’t go well for PDS after that as Allentown jumped out to a 9-2 halftime lead and pulled away to an 18-7 win. “The second half wasn’t as strong; we just wanted to be first to the ball,” said Mundenar, who ended up with two goals in the loss. “Our big thing for this game was winning the draw; we worked a lot on that in practice. We are trying to figure that out because that is a big part of the game.” Wit h PDS hav ing won three straight state Prep B crowns, Mundenar is confident that that the Panthers will figure out how to get on the winning track. “I do think it is going to be beneficial to us in the end because we are starting with more high powered teams,” said Mundenar, who tallied seven goals to help PDS edge Hun 14-12 last Saturday and improve to 2-2. “We usually slowly get into that in the season. Although we may not be coming up with the wins early on, I do think by facing tougher competition in the beginning, we will be ready when it is tournament time.” Playing with fellow seniors Kyra Hall and Bridget Kane on attack gives Mundenar a comfort level on the field. “ We a l l a l w ay s k n o w where we are going to be on the field,” said Mundenar. “We all have our special positions. We need to keep our heads up and always look for each other. It is not clicking yet but it is early. The biggest thing is figuring out this offense. Coach [Jill] Thomas was just saying we have such a high powered offense, we have a lot of girls who can score. I am confident that we can figure it out. It is just going to take more time and some good practices.” PDS head coach Jill Thomas believes that the Panthers will benefit in the long run from playing high quality foes early in the season. “We have got to figure it out; we have played two g r e at op p o n e n t s ,” s a i d Thomas, whose team fell 17-7 to the Hill School (Pa.) in its season opener on March 28. “It is not where you start, it is where you finish.” T homas ack nowle dge s that the PDS needs to tighten up on the defensive end as it looks to fill the void left by the graduation of star Abby Atkeson.
“We are trying to jell on defe n s e,” s a id T hom as. “When you have the Prep defensive player of the year last year in Abby not there, they have to figure it out. They did a little bit better today. That is a great team and we are not a bad team.” Thomas is confident that the Panthers will end up being a very good team by the end of the spring. “We will get on the right track and get the right chemistry,” said Thomas, whose team hosts Pennington on April 11 before playing at Princeton High on April 12 and at Blair Academy on April 17. “We are used to being on
top, so we have to find out a way, when we are on the bottom to get back to the middle and then back to the top.” Mundenar, for her part, is looking to go out on top along with her eight classmates on the squad. “We have all been waiting for this last year, our mantra has been fourth one, best one,” said Mundenar, who is heading to St. Bonaventure, where she will be playing for its Division I women’s lacrosse program. “We have been together so long, we just want to end the season strong; not all of us will be playing next year so we all want to finish our season off well together and savor there opportunities.” —Bill Alden

miles and you are basically heading westward the whole time,” said Crane. “As long as you are going west, you are pretty much good. You get close to the finishing in English harbor, it is smaller than a football field, and I got really nervous because the winds were picking up and it got really stormy. I was afraid that I was going to get smashed on the rocks. The Antiguan search and rescue actually met me a few miles out and helped me into the harbor.” Once he landed safely in the harbor, Crane was reunited with his family and enjoyed a hot meal. “I couldn’t walk at all because I had been in the water so long,” said Crane, who went from weighing 170 pounds at the start of the trip to 144 with a body fat of four percent at the finish. “The first thing I did was have the traditional ocean rower dinner, which is a cheeseburger, chips, and a cold Coca-Cola. It was definitely the best burger I have ever had.” Being in the water so long helped Crane gain some valuable lessons along the way. “It is learning about life, it is not just about the good moments,” said Crane. “I had plenty of lows. I had some of the saddest days of my life, but also some of the happiest. I learned that stillness isn’t necessarily a bad thing. People, especially in my generation, are always
ATLANTIC ADVENTURE: Oliver Crane celebrates in Antigua this past January after rowing across the Atlantic Ocean as part of the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge. Crane, a resident of Lawrenceville who is headed to Princeton University, rowed the 3,000-mile journey in 44 days, and at age 19, became the youngest person to ever row solo across the Atlantic. on the phone or doing something or going on social media. We think that sitting still, thinking, and reflecting is a waste of time and not being productive, but that really isn’t right.” Crane is looking for the trip to be productive in another way as he has used it as a vehicle to raise money for Oceana, an advocacy or g a n i z at i o n for o c e a n conservation, and HomeFr ont, a Tr e nton - b a s e d charity. Crane has raised about $65,000 for Oceania and just under $3,000 for HomeFront and plans
to keep that effort going by giving talks about his experience, including one to be presented at the Princeton boathouse later this spring. “Oceana works around the globe for ocean conservation,” said Crane, who has created a link for charitable contributions, www.crowdrise.com/homeward. “They work with governments to pass major legislation that protects ocean sanctuaries and establish sustainable fishing practices. Their goal is to conserve the ocean in a way that continues to feed the
world’s population for future generations.” As for his future in rowing, Crane is considering joining the Princeton crew program as a walk-on. “I talked to the coaches; they like to get rowers who are experienced to try out,” said Crane. “My body has been destroyed, going from best shape of my life to the worst. My back hurts and I have had to do a lot of therapy. It has been a while since I have gone on an ERG machine so we will see.” —Bill Alden

“They blast a cannon in La Gomera; the adrenaline is pumping through your body but then within an hour, it really sets in that you just took the first stroke of a million and there is 3,000 miles to go,” said Crane. “I also realized ‘wow I am really alone now. I am a solo rower, there is no one else out there to help you.’ It is all on your shoulders.” Going solo meant that Crane faced an exhausting daily routine. “I had planned for doing two hours on and two hours off; I would do that on 24-hour cycle,” said Crane, who slept in a watertight cabin and consumed freeze-dried meals to keep fueled. “It is really important for solo rowers because you need to always be aware of your course. It became really important for me when my auto hull, a machine that automatically steers it when you are not awake, broke the night before the race. It made it more important that I stay awake, so I never slept for more than two hours at a time.” Taking advantage of favorable conditions, Crane rowed along as a steady clip. “I averaged about 65 miles a day,” said Crane. “The reason why you go to the Canary Islands to start is you get on the same route t hat C olu mbu s m ade it across, because it captures as much of the current and trade winds as you can to blow you across.” T he w i nds a nd w ave s caused some harrowing experiences for Crane as he capsized several times and nearly didn’t make it on one occasion. “The third time was really scary because I was using rowing straps and I would strap myself in really tightly,” said Crane. “When the boat flipped, I had trouble getting out of the straps and surfacing to breathe. Eventually I managed to kick out of my own shoes.” While Crane was constantly on alert, he was able to savor the beauty of the interplay between the sky and the sea. “On an everyday basis, the sunrise and the stars would make the water sparkle,” said Crane. “They would be so bright, they would reflect off of the water. It was amazing. I also saw whales. One day a whale popped up right in front of the boat within three feet.” Crane got anther surprise on December 25. “One of the coolest moments was on Christmas when a sailing yacht came up behind me,” recalled Crane. “It was a massive sailing yacht filled with 20-year-old kids. They came up next to me and pulled alongside and said ‘what’s up Ollie.’ They knew my name. I thought I was going crazy. They were tracking on the race tracker and they knew my course. They circled around me, sang Christmas carols, and went on their way.” As Crane made his way to landfall, he had some anxious moments. “It also got a little nervewracking, you row 3,000
It took a while for Oliver Crane to develop a passion for rowing. “I first experienced crew at Mercer Rowing Club in eighth grade, but I didn’t really row much then,” said Crane, a resident of Lawrenceville. “A l l t h r o u g h m i d d l e school my main sport was ice hockey, but I ended up getting five concussions so I couldn’t do contact sports anymore. I ended up doing cross country and rowing at Peddie and fell in love with rowing after that.” After getting accepted to Princeton University and graduating from Peddie last spring, Crane decided to follow in the footsteps of his older siblings and take an adventurous gap year before starting college. With brother Carson having scaled the Seven Summits and another brother, David, having biked across Africa, and a sister, Bella, having hiked the Pacific Crest trail from Mexico to Canada, Crane ended up finding a challenge that would involve his passion for rowing. He came across a YouTube video regarding the Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge and found his mission. “As soon as I watched the video, I said ‘I want to do this, I am going to do this,’” said Crane. Overcoming some initial resistance from his parents and then procuring a used boat that had been used in the event the year before, Crane put in the legwork to prepare for the voyage, “I had to meet all of these requ irements — cer tain training hours, all of the proper equipment,” said Crane, who did some of his training outside of Devon, England. “I found the boat last summer and registered in the summer and then I had two and a half months training, taking survival courses, navigation; all the on boat and on the water training. The biggest goal of training was to put on as much weight as possible, fat and muscle. It is not like other sports where you have to beef up with lots of muscle.” Crane left La Gomera, Canary Islands on December 14, 2017 and made landfall in Antigua on January 28. His crossing took 44 days and, in the process, t he 19 -year- old became the youngest person to row across the Atlantic. As Crane launched his trip, he quickly realized the ordeal ahead of him.

STOCKTON MEANS FULL SERVICE REAL ESTATE.
WHEN SELECTING AN AGENT, EXPERIENCE COUNTS If you’re selling your home, setting the “right” price can be difficult. Relying on an agent to research the local market is a wise idea - but even then, there are pitfalls. Determining a fair and accurate price for any home requires a deep understanding of the local and regional real estate markets at any given time. And since those markets are always changing, you need an agent with a lot of experience to interpret and even predict those shifts in order to make sure your home sells quickly and at the best possible price. What’s more, the features buyers are most interested in are also in flux. Again, your agent’s experience is key. Agents with a lot of experience are skilled in assessing a home’s features, location and other variables in terms of the pool of buyers who are most likely to be interested in your home. Plus, they have the tools and know-how to effectively market your home’s best features so it compares favorably with competing homes. In the end, an experienced agent can help your home sell faster - and for the best possible price. And as a seller, what more could you ask for?
