Princeton Schools Look To October Referendum; Info Sessions This Week

As Princeton Public Schools prepare building plans to submit to the State Department of Education (DOE) in April, leading up to an October 2 facilities referendum vote, Superintendent Steve Cochrane is urging families, staff, and community members to attend one of two information sessions to be held at John Witherspoon Middle School (JWMS) Wednesday, January 10 at 7 p.m. and Thursday, January 11 at 9:30 a.m. Cochrane emphasized that the referendum is driven by the critical need for space, “the transformational opportunity for us to create spaces that accommodate 21st century learning,” and the need for a responsible investment in the children and the community that is cognizant of the tax impact. The discussions “will explore why we need to expand our facilities, what that expansion might include, how the expansion would be designed and funded, and when the vote by the community would take place,” Cochrane wrote. Next month additional town meetings will take place, where consultant Heidi Hayes Jacobs, author and leading international authority on 21st century learning will speak, and people will hear directly from the architects and share with them some of their thoughts and visions. The architects will return in March to show more concrete design ideas before the district presents its preliminary plans to the Department of Education. “We are beginning the process of sharing information about the need, the opportunity to transform learning, and about the financial impact,” Cochrane said. “We welcome feedback from all stake holders. We know we’re building for rapidly rising enrollment. That crunch will continue to increase. We’re also building within the budget.” Princeton High School (PHS) is already 200 over capacity; JWMS is 100 over capacity; the elementary schools are full; and most recent demographic projections predict further growth at all levels. JWMS, with a capacity of 626, for example, has a current population of 727 students, with 850 projected for 2020, and 967 by 2022. The district’s planning is still at the idea stages, but proposed expansions would probably include a significant addition and internal renovations at PHS; a Continued on Page 12

Griggs Farm Fire Survivors Still Need Housing Since the December 27 fire at the Griggs Farm complex that took one life and displaced 35 residents, the local community has rallied to donate funds, food, clothing, and household items. An anonymous couple offered to make a matching gift of $36,000. Now, the call is out for housing options. “We really need places for these folks to stay in the short term, and we need the community’s help to identify places where people can keep their kids in the school district and maintain their closeness to the community,” said Ed Truscelli, executive director of PCH Development Corporation, an affiliate of Princeton Community Housing (PCH). “We’re building a list of opportunities to match people up. If anyone has room in their house, or if an organization has housing to set aside for a period of time, that’s what we need.” PCH, the nonprofit that owns and manages Griggs Farm, was scheduled to meet with residents at Monument Hall on Tuesday night (January 9). “People want to know what’s next, and we are going to try and answer that as best we can,” said Truscelli. “Folks are very emotional, and rightfully so. This is a very shocking thing to happen.”

The cause of the two-alarm blaze at the complex on Billie Ellis Lane is still under investigation. “We have not heard anything from the property owners or insurance companies yet, so I imagine they are still doing their assessment on what they’re going to need to do,” said Robert Gregory, Princeton’s director of emergency management. Built in 1989, the complex has smoke alarms but does not have sprinklers, which were not required at the time of

construction. The fire is believed to have broken out in the apartment of Larisa Bartone, 73, who was found dead in her thirdfloor apartment. Because of the fatality, the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office is involved in the investigation. There are 24 apartments in the building that burned. Those whose homes have been made uninhabitable were first put up at the Nassau Inn. Those without a place to go are currently being housed Continued on Page 12

LALDEF Calls for Clean DREAM Act, As Time Is Running Out for DACA The Latin American Legal Defense and Education Fund (LALDEF) continues to call for a clean DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) from Congress, a bill that is not attached to increased funding for border security and expanded detention facilities, as President Donald Trump and other Republican lawmakers continue to argue for a border wall and more money for immigration enforcement. Meanwhile thousands of young undocumented immigrants, known as DREAMers, are running out of time, with the

Trump administration having set a March 5 termination to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “Congress has had over three months since the September 5 announcement to take action to protect our DREAMers,” said LALDEF Executive Director Adriana Abizadeh. “They have continued to string along the hopes of 800,000 youths. We need to pressure our representatives to hold off the vote if the budget presented does not have a line for DREAMers. To date over 13,000 individuals have lost Continued on Page 4

At press time Tuesday afternoon, Trump was still engaged in a lengthy meeting on immigration with a bipartisan group of lawmakers. His latest proposal was that Congress should address the problem in two phases: first dealing with DACA and border security, including construction of the wall, then undertaking comprehensive immigration reforms. It was not clear whether Trump’s participation and the bipartisan engagement might help lead to resolution of the conflict before the January 19 budget deadline, or the March 5 DACA expiration date. A statement issued Friday by U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin, who participated in Tuesday’s White House session, was indicative of difficulties involved in closing a deal. “President

Trump has said he may need a good government shutdown to get his wall,” Durbin wrote. “With this demand, he seems to be heading in that direction. I’ve been clear from the beginning that Senate Democrats will consider reasonable border security measures in order to pass the DREAM Act into law. The Trump administration set this crisis in motion when it ended DACA four months ago. It’s outrageous that the White House would undercut months of bipartisan efforts by again trying to put its entire wish-list of hardline anti-immigrant bills — plus an additional $18 million in wall funding — on the backs of these young people.” Abizadeh, who will be leading LALDEF’s opening meeting of the year on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at its headquarters in Trenton, emphasized,

“We need to take action. The advocacy will continue.” She noted that action taken, or not taken, by Congress will have local consequences, “losing business owners, losing homeowners, losing students — the residual effects will be enormous.” She continued, “How can we stand by and allow these young people to potentially end up in deportation proceedings? We need to send a clear message to our New Jersey representatives that the 22,000 DREAMers living in our state have a huge impact in our communities and we will hold representatives accountable.” Describing the current impasse as “disheartening,” she said, “We need a clean DREAM Act. We have to make policies that are reflective of the situation we are in. Decisions in Congress should reflect what the nation wants.” Abizadeh noted that topics at Thursday’s meeting would include updates to the DACA situation; how to

Correction An article in the January 3 Town Topics, “One Fought: the Other Protested: Two Men Recall Their Vietnam Experiences” identified Ken Burns as the creator, director, and producer of the television documentary “The Vietnam War.” The documentary was co-created, codirected, and co-produced by both Burns and Lynn Novick.

maintain engagement at the local level; the importance of action, participation, and knowledge of what’s going on; increased voter registration and voting; civic education; and civic engagement. “Our immigrant neighbors are vulnerable and those that have been afforded protections in the past are finding themselves in precarious situations,” Abizadeh said. “This nation was founded

by immigrants and our national immigration policies over the decades have systematically reduced the number of immigrants who can enter our borders through legal pathways. We need an overhaul of our archaic immigration policies to embody the right to the pursuit of happiness that we portray to the world.” —Donald Gilpin

“I LOVED TEACHING”: Princeton University PhD candidate Merle Eisenberg (right) put teaching theories into practice in his interactive history class on Western civilization at Mercer County Community College this past fall. The PU-MCCC partnership will continue this spring and next fall, with five more PU doctoral students teaching at MCCC.

PU Graduate Students Set Forth On Teaching Experience at MCCC Princeton University (PU) and Mercer County Community College (MCCC) have launched a collaborative program for PU graduate students to gain teaching experience in the community college classroom, and the reviews are positive on both sides.

History doctoral candidate Merle Eisenberg, who taught a Western civilization class at MCCC this past fall, repor ted that considerable learning took place, both for himself and his students. “The partnership between Princeton and MCCC is a great way for Pr inceton graduate students to plan and teach their own class, which can often be difficult to do at Princeton,” he said. “It also provides the opportunity for MCCC to have top graduate students teach their students. I personally learned that I loved teaching, which I always thought I would enjoy, but without ever teaching my own class, I could not know for sure.”

Eisenberg, along with Dan Berbecel, who taught Introduction to International Relations, was one of two Princeton graduate students who completed teaching assignments at MCCC in the fall. A third will teach English 102 in the spring, and five more Princeton graduate students will visit MCCC this spring for their orientation semester in preparation for teaching at MCCC next fall. “We are expanding beyond the humanities and social sciences to include on e s t u d e nt te ach e r i n chemistry and one in electrical engineering,” said Amy Pszczolkowski, PU graduate school assistant dean for professional development. ”We think there are many benefits to the program, and look forward to learning how this teaching experience may help our graduate students in the academic job market.” MCCC Dean of Liberal Arts Robert Kleinschmidt noted that the initiative was designed to enrich students at both institutions. “We wanted MCCC students to learn from these bright, motivated Princeton graduate students, who are deep in their fields as PhD candidates. We believe this program worked on many levels.” Eisenberg described how it worked in his classroom. “I aimed to make my class a student-centered learning experience through role

playing of various historical groups, mock trials of controversial figures, group discussions, short movie clips, and interactive discussions,” he said, adding that he typically delivered short lectures and then divided each class into two or three segments in which students participated in varied activities. Eisenberg noted that he learned as much as he taught. “My students seemed to really enjoy the class, especially the active elements such as role playing, debates, and group discussions. I learned that structuring a class on a particular day can be as important to ensure students learn as the content of that class.” Continued on Next Page

Celebrating Excellence In Education Preschool Family Literacy Workshop Series For many families and young children, the start of kindergarten is a time that can be filled with many feelings: excitement, nervousness, anticipation, and uncertainty. The Princeton Public School District is helping families of young children begin easing into this new and exciting stage of life by offering a free Family Literacy Workshop Series on January 10, 17, and 24 at Community Park Elementary School. All families of children who will be entering kindergarten in the fall are invited and encouraged to attend. Families can register online: preschool.html. This workshop series will focus on how parents can develop in their young children the skills that will help them start school as a confident learner. Literacy skills, particularly in math and reading, are extremely beneficial in helping students start school ready to hit the ground running. Each workshop in the series will focus on a different topic related to literacy and school readiness: reading, mathematics, and skills for school success. These workshops will give parents and kids a chance to learn and explore together, offering students engaging activities and parents tips and best practices. “We know that there are important things we can do to help prepare young children for school,” explained Annie Gonzalez Kosek, the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction for Princeton Public Schools. “When parents learn how to incorporate observation and early learning skills into their child’s day-to-day life, which is really very easy to do, we see dramatic results in the classroom.” Literacy skills in reading, writing, and language development begin far before students are taught their letters and sounds. Parents will learn how to engage their young children in multi-sensory experiences of reading and language development, such as asking questions about the pictures in a children’s book and looking for clues about what will happen next in a story. Another way parents and caregivers can build language literacy skills is by getting active. Acting out a story or doing actions while singing a song helps engage students in full-sensory learning. Together, students and parents will participate in easy and fun hands-on activities that teach students about the sounds and shapes of letters. “These early learning activities are representative of the kinds of activities that students will do with their classmates in kindergarten,” said Reynold Foreman, Supervisor of English/Language Arts for Pre-K to 8th Grade. Literacy skills in mathematics are equally important, and parents can easily help students develop those skills through a variety of games and activities. By helping young children see math in the real world, such as counting the number of buttons on their coat or noting address numbers on houses, students will quickly begin understanding that numbers have meaning and are a regular part of life. Parents will learn how to use board games to help teach basic counting and logic skills in a way that is fun not only for young children, but also for the whole family. Parents will also learn how to help students begin recognizing patterns, orders of numbers, and shapes and sizes. Literacy also extends to the children’s ability to adapt to the new environment of their school and classroom. As adults, we often think that the harder we work the better we will become at something, but for children, the opposite is often true. The more kids are allowed to play, the more life skills they will gain. Through openended creativity, unstructured play time, board games with winners and losers, and imaginative exploration, students develop resiliency as they learn how to make mistakes, cooperate, problem solve, and gain independent thinking skills. The Family Literacy Workshop Series is open to all current preschool students in our district and families in Princeton with students who will be entering kindergarten in the fall.

In addition to his lessons on the history of Western civilization, Eisenberg expressed his hope that he broadened his st udents’ views of higher education in general and, in particular, their goals in college and beyond. He encouraged several of his students to apply to Princeton and other selective colleges. “Perhaps t he g re ate s t impact for some of my students,” he said, “is to understand the numerous colleges and universities they can apply to that can broaden their views of the world. I hope many of them know they have the skills, knowledge, and abilities to succeed at any university anywhere.” In preparation for their teaching, Eisenberg and Berbecel spent time on the MCCC campus last spring. Partnered with MCCC faculty mentors, they observed classes, attended college events and committee meetings, and took advantage of professional development opportunities. MCCC mentors included Laura Sosa (business administration), Diane Rizzo (English), Holly-Katherine Johnson (English), and Daniel Schermond (sociology). Eisenberg shadowed Rizzo in several of her English classes and sat in on a variety of history classes last spring. Rizzo attended one of his classes this past fall and provided extensive feedback on his teaching. —Donald Gilpin

Question of the Week

“How do you think the town handled snow removal after the recent storm? (Asked Friday in downtown Princeton) (Photos by Erica M. Cardenas)

“They missed the entrance on John Street and Nassau Street by the Chamber Street garage. My car got stuck on my way to work today. Other than that one-way street, they did a pretty good job of clearing the main streets.” —Blair Hamren, Princeton

“This was a hard storm and I stayed in yesterday, although I managed to shovel my driveway and sidewalk. We drove into downtown Princeton this afternoon and the main roads have been cleared.” —John Vitale, Hightstown

“They did a great job. Compared to other nearby towns, they cleaned up everything nicely.” —Katerina Varsou, Princeton

“Paying the meter is frustrating because all the snow has been pushed to the sidewalk. Also, they missed the side streets. They cleared the main roads, but missed a lot of the residential areas.” —Sattar Vakili, Princeton

“Better than last year. Most of the roads were clear and we picked up the recycling in the areas we could get to. We’re out driving every day and we mark and go back to the areas we missed due to the weather conditions.” —David Trower, Waste Management Recycling, Princeton

CoolVines, a neighbor of Savory Spice Shop on Spring Street, has announced it will close early this year, but is opening new stores in Jersey City

and Newark. CoolVines already has one store in Jersey City. In a press release, Lisa Jones said she is launching an interior design consulting business. She has not ruled out the possibility of returning to town in a pop-up shop during the holiday season. The pop-up idea is appealing “because I wouldn’t have to carry a long-term overhead and I could still serve my loyal customer base,” she said. Keeping the store open would have meant a 33 percent jump in rent. “I was not willing to sign up for a multiyear lease that included an enormous rent hike while

continually trying to compete with the escalating world of online shopping,” Jones said. “The brick and mortar retail climate has drastically changed and, as a result, so has the retail scene in downtown Princeton. It’s an unfortunate reality, especially for small business owners.” CoolVines founder and president Mark Censits said in an email to customers last month that he is sorry to leave Princeton after nearly a decade, but his existing store in Jersey City has outperformed the Spring Street shop three to one. “We will be part of a project involving Whole Foods, Marcus Samuelsson (of Red Rooster, Chopped, Iron Chef fame), and other strong names in retailing and restaurants,” Censits said. “So I will be focusing my energies up north — and hoping that my fellow marchands de vin find sustainable success with the addition of my beloved customers whom I’m reluctantly leaving behind. CoolVines gave me and my family an identity and a connection to Princeton that I sought when I started the business and for that I will always be grateful. Thank you Princeton for 10 years of amazing support!” Mayor Liz Lempert said Monday that the closing of Lisa Jones and other small businesses in town is concerning, yet part of a national trend. “The challenge is for retailers to find a formula that works in the national economy,” she said, adding that the municipality has formed an economic development committee to address such issues. While what building owners charge is out of the town’s control, making parking more accessible can help, she added, referring to the town’s ongoing parking study, to be reported by consultants at the January 22 meeting of Princeton Council. “I don’t understand how they are charging 33 percent higher rent when there are so many empty storefronts in town,” Council President Jenny Crumiller commented Monday. “It doesn’t make sense.” Jones is encouraging customers with outstanding gift certificates and store credits to use them soon. A storewide sale on all home and fashion accessories, clothing, and small furnishings will begin soon. “The decision to close up shop was not an easy one as we have many, many wonderful customers who have been very loyal and appreciative of all that we represent,” she said. “I was a pioneer in this town providing beautiful style at affordable prices. I am very proud of what we accomplished here.” —Anne Levin

A Princeton tradition!

Princeton Council welcomed new members Leticia Fraga and David Cohen at its annual reorganization meeting on January 2. Outgoing members Bernie Miller and Jo Butler had a chance to address the public and their colleagues one last time before stepping down from the dais. Mayor Liz Lempert also delivered remarks. Butler thanked her fellow Council members and the municipal staff, reserving special commendation for the town’s Recreation Department and Recreation C om m it te e, w it h w h om she worked closely during her seven years of service. She ser ved first on Bor-

ough Council and later on the consolidated Council. Butler also urged citizens to continue to support local journalism. “One of the many difficult lessons of 2017 has been the reminder of the importance of a robust, free press,” she said. “Journalism is essential to democracy.” Miller has been in local government since 2002, having served on the Township Committee and as Township mayor before being elected to the consolidated Council. He cited his three biggest accomplishments as working on the process of consolidating the former Borough and Township; serving on the

team that negotiated a seven-year voluntary payment agreement, in lieu of taxes, with Princeton University; and leading development of the town’s first solar electric power generating facility at the former landfill on River Road. “I know we will face difficult challenges in the future,” Miller concluded. “But I will retire from elected office comfortable in my belief that the future of our community is secure in the hands of my colleagues who remain on Council, and those who follow me as newly elected members of Council.” In her sixth year of delivering the reorganization meeting address, Lempert noted the past year’s accomplishments while acknowledging challenges that lie ahead. Budgetary savings, increased affordability options, and maintaining the town’s AAA bond rating were among the successful efforts of 2017, she said. Issues she cited that are still to be resolved include approval of a Fair Share Housing Plan, following the court decision that will determine Princeton’s obligation through 2025; installation of smart parking meters and establishment of revised fees; continuation of the program to address the emerald ash borer infestation; and completion of the Mary Moss Playground construction. Lemper t began her remarks by mentioning marches, protests, and rallies that have been held around the country as well as in Princeton, on issues from women’s rights to immigrant protection and supporting scientific research. She concluded her speech with an acknowledgment of the welcoming signs, especially “Hate has no home here,” on lawns around town. “These warm signs are a constant reminder that we have the power to create the kind of community we want to live in, and, in this uncertain time, we have the ability to rebuild trust in civic institutions by succeeding locally,” she said. The Council meeting scheduled for Monday night, January 8, was cancelled due to inclement weather. At the next meeting on January 22, consultants from Nelson/ Nygaard Consulting Associates, Inc., the transportation planning firm doing a parking study of Princeton, are expected to attend. The public will be able to comment. Council will also discuss goals and priorities for the coming year. —Anne Levin

ramps, curbless showers, expanding entry ways for wheelchairs, and so on. “We evaluate the living space from getting into the house to enjoying the back yard and all in between. What can be done is vast: tilting mirrors so wheelchairbound people can see themselves, adding levers on faucets to make turning them easier for people with arthritis. Even evaluating outside recreation areas such as elevating gardens for people in wheelchairs. “In essence, we want to enable people to have the ability to maneuver inside and outside so that their lifestyle isn’t compromised.” Lifetime Home’s clients vary in their needs, she adds. “They are either choosing to age in place or are living independently with debilitating progressive illnesses such as Parkinson’s or MS, for example. Or, our clients could be a household of multi-generational family members.” Lifetime Home can be helpful in recommending a variety of modifications to the home, reports Tobias. Widening door frames for wheelchairs, remodeling a first floor room into a bedroom, adding hand rails to bathrooms, installing walk-in tubs or curbless showers in bathrooms, and adding hand rails in other rooms are all examples of changes that can be made for convenience and safety. Time Frame Lifetime Home clients are within a one-hour radius of the Princeton-Hopewell area, and requests for service are typically made from spouses or from adult children overseeing their parents’ interest. The time frame for completing a remodel varies, depending on the scope of the job, notes Lisa Tobias. “It varies widely on what needs to be done. One day for simple things to four months for kitchen renovations.” The Lifetime Home partners expect the demand for their services to continue to grow. As she points



out, “Sheer demographics (an aging baby boomer population) and the ability to deliver ‘virtual medical care’ at home in conjunction with technology is making living at home longer a reality as we age. “So, yes, the demand is rising. Very few people want to leave the comfort of their own home to voluntarily go to a facility. If you love where you live, chances are you don’t wish to move, but the very things that once empowered them to live independently may suddenly seem restrictive. Safe Haven “Simply put, aging in place means remaining in your home safely, independently, and comfortably regardless of your age, income, or ability level. There is nothing we enjoy more than making it possible for our clients to age in place safely and comfortably. You’d be surprised how easy it is to transform your home into a safe haven. We are there to make your home safer.” Holly Hardaway and Claire Mulry, co-owners of Independent Domain LLC, are also engaged in helping older people to remain in their homes. Occupational therapists and Aging in Place specialists and consultants, they established their company in Franklin Park more than 12 years ago. It serves all of New Jersey, with special emphasis on Mercer County. “Since we are occupational therapists, we have a knowledge of the disease process, the process of aging, and the needs of individuals across the spectrum,” explains Holly Hardaway. “Over the years, we worked with many clients who were aging and had a need to make their house safer. Now, we see more and more people who are trying to make a plan for this.” She or Claire Mulry visit a prospective client’s home and evaluate the house for accessibility and safety. “We make recommendations both low end and high end,” she points out. “We do a detailed home assessment, paying special attention to what people actually want to do. It is definitely not a




‘one-size-fits-all’ plan. It is very individualized.” The suggestions vary depending on each client’s situation. “It could be as simple as as rearranging the furniture, changing the location so there can be a wider area to move through, putting extra hand rails on the staircase, or removing scatter rugs. We could also suggest remodeling existing space or providing extra space for a caregiver, if necessary.” In addition, Hardaway notes that “there can be simple solutions to make the house more ‘visitable’ for older friends and family members. “We can also suggest people for remodeling, and we have contractors we’ve worked with in the past. We provide clients with a list of resources and information. We can recommend the right shower head or a different type of faucet handle that could be easier for people with arthritis.” Special Lights “Also,” she continues, “we always take lighting into consideration. For example, there are special lights with motion sensors that turn on when a person moves. Some people don’t bother to turn on a light if they have to get up at 3 a.m. Turn on the light, so you don’t trip and fall.” The owners’ background as occupational therapists is an invaluable asset in their work as Aging in Place Specialists and Consultants, points out Hardaway. “With our experience, we can fit the person to their environment and occupation. Occupation includes their regular daily tasks, such as taking a shower, getting dressed, preparing a meal, etc. “The whole reason we started our business was to help people to be safer and more independent in their house. And, again, one of the most important things is not one size fits all. How you modify the house for safety and greater independence is very individualized. Our goal is to help people stay in their homes for a lifetime.” —Jean Stratton

at an extended stay hotel on Route 1, paid for by PCH. Truscelli said PCH is thankful for the community’s outpouring of donations of food and clothing, much of which has been processed at Trinity Church. “But at this point, we’re looking for gift certificates to local stores, and funds we can use either for them directly, or to offset some of the costs of temporary housing,” he said. The Griggs Farm condominium association is responsible for the structures, while PCH is responsible for improvements to the interiors. “The condo association’s insurance is taking the lead on the part of the building that needs to be rebuilt,” Truscelli said. “It’s fair to say that it will take several months, which is why we’re trying to help people out.” Princeton’s Human Services Department has been actively involved in helping PCH address the issues. “One of the things I’ve been talking to the county about is the explosion that happened in Ewing (at a condominium complex in March 2015), and how they managed,” said Human Services Director Elisa Neira. “They have shared a few tools with us that we can put in place.” PCH has created a Griggs Farm Fire Relief Fund.

new community school for fifth and sixth grades at the Valley Road site that is currently occupied by administration, maintenance, and transportation; upgrades in all six schools; a new space for administration, transportation, and maintenance staff, who would move from Valley Road; and the possibility of space for a preschool center. The Board is currently investigating places around town “we could slide into without having to build another structure. We have a couple of live possibilities,” Cochrane said. The architects, Spiezle Architectural Group, collaborating on the design with Fielding Nair International, have been on site this week, touring buildings, listening to teachers, administrators, board members, and community leaders. The superintendent met Monday with a design team of teachers, administrators, and architects. C o ch r a n e e m p h as i z e d that 21st century education calls for the creation of flexible spaces that facilitate active learning, with learners working collaboratively with classmates and others around the world, with areas that encourage integrated and interdisciplinary learning and courses and curricula that are research-driven. In discussing the idea of the creation of a school for grades five and six, Cochrane noted both practical, logistical issues, freeing up space at the elementary schools and JWMS, and educational, developmental advantages.


Wonder what a girl can do?

“We’re looking at the fivesix model as meeting the developmental needs of that particular group of kids, by extending the elementary experience even as it gives kids of that age an opportunity to explore and test their independence, then come back to the nurturing environment,” he said. “That would be an exciting and educational experience for that group of students, also preserving the neighborhood schools and keeping the community together.” The larger community will be able to share their thoughts with Cochrane and Board members at the Wednesday and Thursday sessions. As Cochrane said to the Board last fall, “Schools are not buildings, but the people in them. But the buildings can serve those people.” And he went on to raise the question that he, the schools, and the community will be grappling with in the next nine months leading up to the referendum: “How can we create spaces that will connect, support, and inspire those people?” —Donald Gilpin

When girls come to Stuart, they enter a community that is both challenging and supportive. From preschool to senior year, their curiosity and zest to learn are fed by outstanding academics and expert faculty–who know girls and know each girl well.

“Ideally, social media greatly expands the possibilities for communication between people whose lives are not directly connected.” The first event took place in October featuring TalithaKoumi (T.K.) Oluwafemi, who explained the intersectionality of feminism and race. The second event, held December 5, featured Paris McClean, head of Sacred Heart School Lower School, who discussed code switching. Both events were followed by group discussions between the attending adults and high school students

from Corner House. Participants in the up coming event are encouraged to BYOD (bring your own device) and will be able to participate in person or log on remotely. To RSVP for this intergenerational race discussion, all participants must email: igrd@ and indicate whether they will join in person or via internet. Invitations to the online meeting will be sent out prior to January 16. For more information call (609) 497-2100 ext 383.

Musings on Muldoon the Chameleon Poet, “The Crown,” and Sir Ringo What shocks the virtuous Philosopher delights the chameleon Poet. —John Keats ichard Starkey and Paul Muldoon have a rendezvous with the Queen. Some time in the new year, the Beatles’ drummer Ringo Starr will be knighted by Elizabeth II and the Princeton professor will receive the Queen’s Gold Medal for poetry. Perhaps it’s too much to expect Her Majesty to dub the Beatle “Sir Ringo,” a pairing of extremes that would surely delight the chameleon poet being honored for his “restless, playful brilliance.” Sir Paul McCartney, who was knighted 20 years ago, got his bid in early with an affectionately irreverent overture to the Queen tossed off during the Abbey Road sessions. It’s not enough that “Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl” (she was 43) who “doesn’t have a lot to say” and “changes from day to day,” he wants “to tell her that I love her a lot/But I gotta get a bellyful of wine/Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl/ Someday I’m going to make her mine.” This 23-second-long jeu d’esprit — the shortest Beatles song ever and, as chance would have it, the last piece on their last album as a group — was recorded on July 2, 1969 by McCartney accompanying himself on acoustic guitar. Although he originally intended to trash this royal trifle, it was rescued by one of the EMI engineers and put on the tape 20 seconds after the last listed track, “The End,” and there it stayed. Muldoon’s Wheel The news reports about the Queen’s poetry medal refer to Paul Muldoon as only the second poet from Northern Ireland to win the award since it was first presented in 1934. Be that as it may — a crutch phrase a poet who says he “loves clichés” could hang a nifty stanza on — Muldoon has been living and writing in the U.S. and teaching at Princeton for 30 years. While I’ve found no whimsical serenades to Her Majesty after a quick tour of his work, every time he spins his wheel of words, it finds something piquant or apt, for instance the way his 1987 poem “Profumo” lands on episode 10 of season 2 of the acclaimed Netflix series The Crown, which had its global premiere on December 8. The “Mystery Man” of the episode’s title is Prince Philip’s osteopath, Stephen Ward, who hooks Profumo up with showgirl Christine Keeler. Muldoon’s poem begins with his mother slapping “a month-long news embargo” on Profumo’s “very name,” and has him affixing “a stamp/with the Queen’s head upside down” on a “violetscented Thirteenth Birthday card” to a girl his mother finds wanting. In “The Wishbone,” he watches “with the sound turned off” as the Queen delivers her message to the Commonwealth. There’s also a certain resonance in the opening stanza of “I Remember Sir Alfred” about the gardens of Buckingham Palace that were “strewn once with Irish loam/So those English moles that knew their place/Would have no sense of home.”


Next on “The Crown” The next season of The Crown, in which Queen Elizabeth reigns over Swinging London, will most likely feature an appearance by the Beatles. I have mixed feelings about the prospect because the second season’s eighth episode (“Mrs. Kennedy”) was marred by Michael C. Hall’s clumsy, uncharismatic JFK, which doesn’t bode well for the fate awaiting John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Perhaps series creator Peter Morgan will dodge that bullet by running some remastered live footage of the Queen presenting the

cut in playing the Queen. It’s for her to discover, and she’ll probably find out lots of things that I never found out …. It’s a rolling thing, and it’s ever-changing and ever-revolving. That’s the secret in portraying the Queen — no one owns it. It’s everyone’s interpretation, and that’s also the beauty of it …. She’ll completely reinvent it and make it her own.” Shape-Shiftings Foy’s description of the ever-changing, ever-revolving nature of performance relates to the trajectory of her acting life,

Movie Data Base (IMDB). Besides the serial killer and gay undertaker that Michael C. Hall played before taking on JFK, you have Jared Harris as King George VI, formerly Lane Pryce in Mad Men, a character last seen hanging from the back of his office door. As for Elizabeth’s other prime ministers, Anthony Eden is played by Jeremy Northam, who has been Mr. Knightley in Emma, Charles II in New Worlds, Sir Thomas More in The Tudors, and Dean Martin in Martin and Lewis. And if a Brit can play an Italian American crooner, why not the American John Lithgow, formerly George Washington and the White Rabbit, as Winston Churchill? Muldoon’s virtuosity in the poetical equivalent of this randomly unrandom field of play is evident throughout his work. In “Pip and Magwitch,” from the 2015 collection, One Thousand Things Worth Knowing, Anwar al-Awlaki leaves a paperback of Great Expectations “all bundled up with a printer-cartridge bomb” while “Dirty Data” features appearances by Lew Wallace and Ben Hur, Messala, Pontius Pilot, Caesar, Little Miss Sally, Billie the Kid, the Tory politician Willie Whitelaw, the “glamour-puss Haya Harareet” the actress Cathy O’Donnell, George Bernard Shaw, Lonnie Donegan, and numerous surfacings of Sir Winston Churchill, as his funeral cortege proceeds from the Royal Chapel to Woodstock: “As his carriage passes the dolphins bob/for a commoner’s mere 19- rather than a nostops-pulled 21-gun salute.” The Queen In Person he last glimpse I had of the real Queen Elizabeth was while standing among an absolutely silent crowd of onlookers near Hyde Park Corner on April 8, 2002 watching the Queen Mother’s funeral procession. Seen all in black through the window of the royal limo next to Prince Philip, she looked, inevitably, old and sad. On a midsummer day in 1973, I saw her clearly and at close range riding down Queen’s Road in Bristol in an open car smiling and waving, there to celebrate the 600th anniversary of the granting of the city’s charter. Dressed in green and wearing an absurd green hat, a sort of bowler, she was disarmingly likable, without airs, enjoying the moment, a long way from the dull and dumpy monarch in newsreels reviewing troops or visiting schools. There was no sense of royal hauteur. In fact, the quality I found sympathetic that day is not unlike the quality in Claire Foy’s portrayal of the young Queen in The Crown — in both instances, there’s the sense of an actress humbled by the part she’s playing. —Stuart Mitchner ——— The “chameleon Poet” quote comes from Keats’s October 27, 1818 letter to Rochard Woodhouse. The poetry quoted is from Paul Muldoon’s Poems 1968-1998 (Farrar, Strauss and Giroux 2001) and Selected Poems 19682014 (Farrar, Strauss and Giroux 2016). I’ve also consulted William J. Dowdling’s Beatlesongs (Simon & Schuster 1989) and Volume 1 of Robert Lacey’s handsomely illustrated The Crown: The Official Companion (Crown Archetype 2017).


boys with MBEs in 1965. But given that Labour Prime Minister Harold Wilson is likely to play a prominent part in Season 3, there may be no way around a scene where Wilson, who represented a Liverpool suburb, convinces Elizabeth to make the presentation, an “outrage” that prompted some former recipients to return their medals in protest. However Morgan decides to handle that particular royal occasion, his Queen will be played by another, older actress. As appealing as Claire Foy, 33, is in the role, Olivia Colman, 43, best known for the award-winning series Broadchurch, promises to be even better. Interviewed in Vanity Fair, Foy says of Colman, “She’s the most extraordinary actress and person in every single way …. There’s no short-

Meanwhile the everrevolving wheel of thespian fortune has Anton Lesser, Mr. Merdle in Little Dorritt, playing both Sir Thomas More to Foy’s Anne Boleyn in Wolf Hall and PM Harold Macmillan in The Crown while Mrs. Merdle, Amanda Redman in real life, ends up narrating the documentary of the moment, Prince Harry and Meghan: Truly, Madly, Deeply.

There is convincing evidence that later start times — allowing for increased and higher quality sleep — significantly improve adolescent physical and emotional well-being, including academic and athletic performance. It is for this reason that we are asking PrincYour Life, Your Vision, Your Home eton Public Schools to work toward an 8:30 or later start time for older students. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), sleep deprivation is one of the greatest public health problems in the united States. It impacts millions of people — especially adolescents — causing widespread and well-documented negative consequences to society as a whole. Lack of sleep is associated with adolescent stress, poor academic performance, and an overall decline in social and emotional health, at a time when we already face alarming rates of adolescent depression, anxiety, and suicide. In 2014, the AAP released a policy statement, “School Start Times for Adolescents,” recommending that middle and high school students start school at 8:30 or later to reflect the natural shift in adolescent circadian rhythms. In 2015, the CDC published research about school start times that echoed the AAP’s recommendation and found that nearly two-thirds of adolescents in the united States Kitchen Interior Designers are chronically sleep deprived.


A Letter From PCH Acknowledging Community’s “Big Heart” in Response to Griggs Farm Tragedy

Commending Compassion of Community For Victims Displaced By Griggs Farm Fire

The August 7, 2017 CDC Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report describes common obstacles faced by proponents of delayed start times. These include concerns about transportation, scheduling of athletic and other after-school activities, as well as a lack of awareness about the link between sleep, school start times, and adolescent health outcomes. The report urges those resistant to later start times to study the compelling research behind this policy recommendation. We hope decision-makers in our community will do the same. More information can be found at and We also support other recent district initiatives that help alleviate stress and improve the overall health of our students, including changes to the homework policy, healthier cafeteria food options, and updates to the health and physical education curriculum. We hope the PPS superintendent and the Board of Education will implement the AAP’s 8:30 or later start time recommendation for both PHS and JWMS, in the near future, and we encourage the community to support the efforts of our school district to put the health of our children first.

They were wonderfully caring, got Bob up and checked him for injury, helped us back into the house and saw that he was comfortable. They even finished taking out the recycling!

Steve Ditko also co -created SpiderMan. Previously, DC Comics’ Carmine Infantino had introduced the Flash to readers, which sparked the renewed interest in superhero comics. This allowed ar tists like Joe Kuber t (Hawkman) and Gil Kane (Green Lantern) to follow suit and reintroduce other characters, initiating what historians consider to be the Silver Age of Comics. “At some point I became aware that I could own the original drawings used in the publication of the comics that educated and entertained me through my formative years,” Charles

Viera’s narrative works have rarely been displayed as a group and are the focus of this exhibition which coincides with a special class, Narrative Painting: Making a Statement, which will be offered at the Arts Council on Saturday, January 20 from 1-2:30 p.m. Viera’s paintings and drawings have been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, the Nassau County Museum, Adam Gimbel Gallery, and the First Street Gallery in New York, as well as locally at the Artists’ Gallery and the Riverrun Gallery in Lambertville. Viera has taught painting and drawing to students of all levels and ages, including graduate students at Long Island University, inmates at the Brooklyn House of Detention, and children at

the Montclair and Hunterdon Art Museums. He currently teaches beginner to advanced painting for adult students at the Arts Council of Princeton and for Hunterdon County Parks and Recreation. “We are very excited to have Charles David Viera’s work and collection here at the Arts Council,” said Artistic Director Maria Evans, “We’re thrilled to bring this exhibition, that combines modern and classical influences, to our Taplin Gallery for the community to enjoy.” Arts Council of Princeton is located at the Paul Robeson Center for the Ar ts, 102 Witherspoon Street, Princeton.

David Viera says of his collection, “Partly for their artistic value and partly for nostalgia purposes, I am presenting this exhibition of the true comic book heroes, the artists themselves.” The timing of this exhibition coincides with the February 2018 release of Black Panther, a superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The character debuted in 1966 in an issue of Marvel’s Fantastic Four comic book series. Coincidently, Viera’s collection includes two pages from Jack Kirby’s Black Panther.

Wendy Ellsworth creates art bead by tiny bead, and with a seemingly endless variety of colors, shapes, and textures at her fingertips, her palette appears unlimited. “I consider myself a color artist, with beads representing tiny photons of colored light which can be woven together to form infinite patterns of beauty and delight,” Ellsworth said. “Wendy Ellsworth: A Passion for Beads” opens at the Hunterdon Art Museum (HAM) on Sunday, January 14.

Oldman Channels Churchill in Compelling Documentary Drama

Learn more at





arkest Hour and Dunkirk cover the same period of time, which was Winston Churchill’s (Gary Oldman) first month as prime minister of Great Britain. When he was sworn in on May 10, 1940, the country was at war with Germany which had already conquered most of Europe and was just starting to invade Belgium, France, and the Netherlands. Churchill’s predecessor, Neville Chamberlain (Ronald Pickup) had unsuccessfully tried a diplomatic policy of appeasement which had only emboldened Hitler. As a result, soon after entering office, Winston found himself facing a daunting task after the Nazis’ blitzkrieg had broken through the Maginot Line. Suddenly, the Allied forces were in full retreat, including hundreds of thousands of British soldiers who were being driven to the sea, where they would be sitting ducks for the Luftwaffe. Dunkirk focused on the evacuation of the troops by an impromptu flotilla of private citizens, whereas Darkest Hour focuses on Churchill’s leadership and oratory

After all, it was quite a feat to convince a poorly equipped nation that it could successfully ramp up its defenses to successfully fight the seemingly unstoppable war machine that was practically on its doorstep. Directed by Joe Wright (Atonement), Darkest Hour does a magnificent job of plumbing the depths of Churchill’s psyche as well as recreating a number of his inspirational speeches, concluding with his historic “We shall never surrender!” address delivered to Parliament on June 4th. Unfortunately, Darkest Hour pales in comparison to the visually captivating Dunkirk. Perhaps the introspective and action-oriented productions should have been spliced together. Nevertheless, Gary Oldman might win an Oscar for his sterling portrayal of the British Bulldog. Excellent (HHHH). Rated PG-13 for mature themes. Running time: 125 minutes.

With Freshman Frankel Coming Up Big, PU Women’s Hockey Getting on Right Track


haron Frankel stands only 5’1 but she is making a big impact in her freshman season with the Princeton University women’s hockey team. After tallying a goal and an assist in her first 15 games for the Tigers, she has chipped in two goals and an assist over her last five appearances. In assessing her progress, Frankel acknowledged that there have been ups and downs as she has adjusted to college hockey. “One of the biggest challenges, especially going to a top school like Princeton, is being able to focus in at the rink and forget all of the school work and the outside pressures,” said Frankel, a native of West Hartford, Conn. “When we are here, we need to pay attention to the smaller things, like the video sessions and the lifts, and really just be on top of our game all of the time.” Last Saturday as Princeton hosted No. 4 Colgate, Frankel displayed some game, tallying a goal midway through the third period to knot the game at 2-2. “My linemates and I have been working hard together for a while and the chemistry was really flowing,” said Frankel, referring to fellow freshmen, Shannon Griffin, and Annie MacDonald, who were each credited with an assist on the score.

“We finally put one away together so it felt really good to get that goal and to tie it up and to do it with my linemates.” Although Colgate scored a late goal to pull out a 3-2 win, Frankel was proud of how Princeton battled back as it trailed 2-0 entering the third period. “I think the message in the second intermission was to keep going and give all we had,” said Frankel, reflecting on the defeat which moved the Tigers to 6-10-4 overall and 5-8-1 ECAC Hockey. “We just needed to keep pushing and give it that extra inch. We have been training all year and we are definitely a really well conditioned team, so I think that really helped pull us through.” With Princeton having defeated No. 5 Cornell 5-2 a day earlier, Frankel believed that the Tigers made progress in their first action of 2018. “I think this weekend was definitely a step forward and especially looking ahead to the end of the season and the playoffs, showing that we can hang in there with anyone and even outplay and outcompete a lot of teams,” said Frankel. “That definitely bodes well for us. It keeps reminding us to push forward and give all we have, which we did to get the results we wanted some

of the times this weekend. Hopefully we will keep getting them if we put in the work.” Princeton head coach Cara Morey likes the way Frankel is pushing the action. “Frankel is very strong, she is a workhorse,” said Morey. “She does what we need her to do and that is to create a lot of pressure on the puck. She is awesome on the penalty kill because when other teams get a little relaxed and complacent, she is coming hard and takes them by surprise. She is a battler.” Morey was proud of the way her players battled back in the third period. “We just tweaked our forecheck a little bit and talked about what we really do well,” said Morey, whose team outshot the Raiders 15-7 in the final frame. “They just came out ready to play, this team believes in themselves.” With Princeton having gone 2-1-1 since the Christmas break, Morey believes the Tigers are starting to roll. “It was the start of a new season. I think we are doing awesome,” said Morey. “We easily could have come out of that game with a point and had back-to-back three-point weekends. We are heading in the right direction, and I think there are going to be

(Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) a lot of teams afraid to play us in the playoffs.” Morey is not surprised that her squad is on the upswing. “I actually don’t think we have changed much; we just honestly didn’t get the bounces in the first half,” said Morey. “We knew eventually the bounces would have to come our way. They have stayed positive throughout. We knew it was going to turn

around because we were already outplaying teams.” With Princeton hosting Brown on January 12 and Yale on January 13, Morey is confident her team will keep playing well. “It is a huge weekend for us,” said Morey. “It is two Ivy League games and the Ivy League means a lot to us. It is two good opponents.” It has meant a lot for Fran-

kel to be taking a greater role for the Tigers. “I am definitely starting to feel like a real part of the team,” said Frankel. “The upperclassmen have been great at including the freshmen and making us feel welcome. Now it is the second half of the year, I don’t feel like there is a divide at all. I feel comfortable, for sure.” —Bill Alden

Mitch Henderson believed that his Princeton University men’s basketball team was in a good place as it faced Penn last Saturday in the Ivy League opener. Heading into the clash with the Quakers, Princeton was coming off a superb western swing which saw it go 4-1, posting wins at Cal Poly and Southern Cal and then topping Akron and host Hawaii after falling to Middle Tennessee State at the Hawaiian Airlines Diamond Head Classic in Honolulu. “It was a great trip for the program. We got a chance to be together,” said Princeton head coach Henderson. “We went down to George Washington a month ago and we were not good (a 71-60 loss on December 6). From that trip to now, there has been a lot of growth from our younger guys and on the defensive end of the ball, which is what we always try to hang our hat on. We had a trademark win against USC. I was proud of how we bonded in that moment. We are going to be able to lean on the trip for a long time.” But the trip to Philadelphia last Saturday ended up being a disappointment as Princeton dug an early hole,

trailing 36-27 at halftime on the way to a 76-70 loss to the Quakers before a crowd of 3,879 at the Palestra. “They were aggressive ; they clearly had a plan of going to the basket on us,” said Henderson, reflecting on the loss which snapped Princeton’s 18-game winning streak in Ivy League regular season and tournament play. “All the credit goes to Penn, but we weren’t sharp.” The Tigers battled back down the stretch, narrowing the Penn gap to 72-70 with 50 seconds left in regulation. “We made some plays to get ourselves within a possession,” said Henderson, who got 21 points from junior star Devin Cannady as he passed the 1,000-point mark in his career. “I think the better team that night won. We have got to be far sharper and more disciplined to be successful, especially on the road.” Going forward, Princeton will need to be sharper at bot h ends of t he cour t. “They put in 50 percent from the field against us. In the league, we have been

very good at holding teams and being the best defensive team in the league so we have got a ways to go but that is our main goal,” said Henderson. “We only had seven assists in the game. We have been very good at sharing the ball and making each other better.” In Henderson’s view, the loss to the Quakers should help the Tigers get better in the long run. “I don’t need to reinvent any thing but we have to get back to the basics,” said Henderson. “We have done that; we had a really good look at it today as a group.” With Princeton, now 7-8 overall and 0-1 Ivy, hosting Columbia on Januar y 12 and Cornell on January 13, the Tigers are primed to get back on the winning track. “I am glad that we are home; we have enjoyed success at home in the league lately and we have to keep it going,” said Henderson. “This is a big weekend for us. Our goal is always to get two and just get in the win column in the league.” —Bill Alden

David Hallisey is enjoying a big senior season for the Princeton University men’s hockey team, but he sees it as a matter of being at the right place at the right time more than anything else. “I have to give all the credit to the junior class of [ Max] Veronneau, [ Ryan ] Kuffner, and those guys,” said Hallisey who has tallied 11 goals so far this season to tie him with Kuffner for the team lead. “I just kind of stand in front of the net and they give me the puck.” Having battled a wrist injury early in his career, Hallisey feels fortunate to be at full speed. “I wasn’t healthy the first two years,” said Hallisey, a 5’10, 180-pound native of Wethersfield, Conn. “I am healthy now so I am lucky enough to have that opportunity.” In a recent two - game set against No. 1 St. Cloud State, Hallisey was opportunistic around the goal, getting a goal and an assist in a 3-3 tie on December 29 and picking up an assist in a 2-2 tie the next night. The game-tying assist in the second game was the product of a good connection on the ice between Hallisey and Kuffner. “It is something we practice a lot. I tried doing it again in over time, but I forced it,” said Hallisey, who

has seven assists so far this season. “I kind of look the other way and it opens up Ryan Kuffner there in front of the net. We have had two or three goals that way this season.” Princeton head coach Ron Fogarty isn’t surprised to see that Hallisey is having a big senior season. “Dave keeps going until the last ounce of breath is out of him,” said Fogarty. “He works so hard, he wants to win a championship before his time is up here at Princeton. He is someone who is very dependable, you know exactly what you are going get from him.” Fogarty liked what he got from his players as they battled St. Cloud all over the ice on consecutive nights. “It was great, I thoroughly enjoyed the 130 minutes of hockey,” said Fogarty. “It shows where we can be when we are consistent in our play, consistent in our focus, and do all the smart things with the puck. You keep assessing as a coach on how to get better every day and today we got better. We pushed our ceiling of how good we can be higher than it ever was. We competed with a team that is very good and that has blemishes of two losses to Denver, one tie to North Dakota,

and two ties to Princeton.” While the Tigers picked up some blemishes last weekend as they fell 7-1 to No. 5 Cornell on Friday and 4-0 to 17th-ranked Colgate a night later, Fogarty believes that focusing on each shift will pay dividends for the Tigers down the homestretch. “I like where our team is going, it is making sure that they are consistent and not reading what is on Twitter of the expectations,” said Fogarty, whose squad, now 6-9-3 overall and 3-71 ECAC Hockey, heads to New England this weekend to play at Harvard on January 12 and at Dartmouth on January 13. “Your expectation is that next shift and that is what we have to bring guys back down to earth and don’t read and listen to how good you should be, but how good you can be.” Hallisey, for his part, believes that Princeton gave a good glimpse of how good it can be with the ties against St. Cloud. “I think we proved ourselves by doing it two nights in a row,” said Hallisey. “It is unfortunate that we didn’t get the win either time. It is good to prove to ourselves how consistent we can be, playing for 65 minutes straight there. In the past we have had small lapses, which have cost us games.” —Bill Alden

FINAL PUSH: Princeton University men’s hockey player David Hallisey tangles with a foe in a game earlier this season. Senior forward Hallisey is enjoying a big final campaign for the Tigers as he is tied with junior Ryan Kuffner for the team lead in goals with 11. Princeton, which fell 4-0 to No. 17 Colgate to drop to 6-9-3 overall and 3-7-1 ECAC Hockey, plays at Harvard on January 12 and at Dartmouth on January 13. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski)

After Guiding PU Water Polo for 20 Years, Nicolao Returning Home to Naval Academy For Luis Nicolao, the hard lessons he learned as a student-athlete at the U.S. Naval Academy have served him well. While Nicolao was miserable when he arrived in Annapolis in the summer of 1988, he emerged as a water polo star for the Midshipmen, becoming a three-time All-America and All-East selection for the Midshipmen and graduating in 1992 as the all-time leading scorer in Academy history. Nicolao earned the Academy’s coveted Silver Sword award as the top senior male athlete. Over the last 20 years, Nicolao has served as the head coach of the Princeton University men’s and women’s teams, posting a combined 844-312 (.730) record, going 402-163 (.712) with the men and 442-149 (.748 ) with the women. He took the Princeton men’s and women’s water polo teams to the NCAA tournament a combined seven times. “Nothing rewarding in life comes easy and the Academy changed me for the better,” said Nicolao last November in reflecting on his college career.

“I look back on it and am thrilled because I wouldn’t be here today without that decision. Without it, I don’t know what kind of path I would have taken.” Now, Nicolao is returning to his beloved alma mater to become the head coach of the Navy water polo program. “I’ve been honored to have coached at an amazing school for the past 20 years,” said Nicolao in a statement last week on the Princeton sports website. “I can’t t hank enough the young men and women who have come through our programs for all the sacrifices and laughs. Navy is the only school I would have left Princeton for, and the chance to go back was something I could not say no to. Thank you to all of our alumni and friends for all of the support through the years.” The departure of the af-

fable Nicolao will leave a void for Princeton athletics, in and out of the water. “Luis has done a phenomenal job here with both our men’s and women’s pro grams,” said Mollie Marcoux Samaan, Princeton’s director of athletics. “ We c a n’t t h a n k h i m enough for his 20 years of dedication to Princeton Water Polo. In addition to all of his success through the years, he’s been an invaluable member of our department, one who always made us laugh and made Princeton an even better place to be every day. We will miss him and we wish him the best at Navy.” As he heads to Annapolis, Nicolao will get to apply the lessons he has learned from coaching at Princeton to his new charges. “My biggest success or achievement is trying to balance Princeton’s academics with athletics,” said Nicolao. “I have to be f lexible, sometimes less is better.” —Bill Alden


ANCHOR AWAY: Princeton University water polo head coach Luis Nicolao makes a point to his women players. Nicolao announced last week that he will be stepping down from his post to be the head coach of the water polo program at his alma mater, the U.S. Naval Academy. Nicolao spent 20 years at Princeton as the head coach of both the men’s and women’s programs. During that time, Nicolao posted a combined 844-312 (.730) record, going 402-163 (.712) with the men and 442-149 (.748) with the women. He took the Princeton men’s and women’s water polo teams to the NCAA tournament a combined seven times. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski)


Hallisey Making the Most of Senior Campaign As PU Men’s Hockey Looks for Consistency


PU Sports Roundup PU Men’s Volleyball Falls at CSUN

Jess Hunt performed well as the Princeton University men’s volleyball team fell 3- 0 to No. 11 Cal State U n i v e r s i t y, N o r t h r i d g e (CSUN). Freshman Hunt led Princeton with 11 kills but it wasn’t enough as CSUN prevailed 25 -17, 25 -22, 25-21. A day earlier, the Tigers posted a 3-2 victory over No. 8 Stanford. The result was a historic one for the Princeton, who had never defeated a team ran ked higher than No. 10 since it became a full varsity program in 1997. Sophomore Greg Luck led the way for the Tigers in the victory, recording 21 kills. Princeton, now 1-3, hosts Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne on Januar y 12 in its home opener.

Princeton Men’s Track Excels at Navy Dual

August Kiles and Adam Kelly made history as the Princeton University men’s track team fell 94-87 at the Navy Dual in Annapolis, Md. last Saturday. Senior Kiles won the pole vault with a leap of 17’ 2.75 to set a Wesley A. Brown Field House facility record.

Nic Petruolo relished the challenge as the Princeton Day School boys’ hockey team hosted powerhouse Don Bosco in the championship game of the Harry Rulon-Miller Invitational. “Coming into this game, they were rated as the best team in the state right now so as a player being a competitor, this is one of the games that you want to play your best,” said Petruolo. “All of our guys battled.” Pe t r u o l o h e l p e d P D S put up a fight against Don Bosco, assisting on a goal by David Sherman as PDS took a 1-0 lead with 10:08 remaining in the first period of the December 30 contest. “The first goal was huge, especially playing against that team, they are very high skilled, very good in transition,” said Petruolo. “When I was coming back to the bench, the first thing I said was ‘boys, let’s go now, it is time too turn it around and really take over.’” Displaying its skill, Don Bosco responded with two unanswered goals to forge ahead 2-1 late in the second period. PDS answered back with a back with a tally by Cade McLaughlin off a beautiful feed from Luke Antonacci to make it 2-2 with 3:19 remaining in the second period. “It was a good breakout from our own zone and transitioned over to a goal which was huge, 2-2 was big,” said Petruolo. “When I came back to the bench, I was saying we really have a chance against this team, we beat Delbarton (1-0 on December 13) and this would have been another one to tip our hats too.”

But showing its class, Don Bosco scored with 2:35 left in regulation and hung on for a 3-2 victory. “It happened to go the wrong way with two and a half minutes left,” said Petruolo. “It is tough but I am happy with the way our team performed. I thought we played really well.” Petruolo was proud of how the Panthers performed on defense. “The big thing was taking care of the house, right in front of the net,” said Petruolo. “On the second goal they scored, they probably had three or four opportunities, our goalie made three saves and they finally put the last one in. They would go to the corner and throw it to the front of the net, that was one big thing to focus on.” Utilizing his experience and skill, Petruolo looks to get pucks on net at the offensive end. “I am an older guy so I am more comfortable handling the puck,” said Petruolo, who plays for the Nor th Jersey Avalanche t ravel team and has committed to attend Union and compete for its Division I men’s hockey team. “I play at a high level.” In addition to producing all over the rink, Petruolo tries to keep spirits high. “One of my roles on the bench is to make sure there is a lot of high energy and make sure that nobody is down on themselves,” said Petruolo, who chipped in an assist to help PDS defeat Wyoming Seminary (Pa.) 3-0 last Wednesday. “I am always talking to the boys, getting them going and getting them ready for the shift. That is huge before you get on the ice,

knowing what you are going to do and where you are going to be. It is just keeping the mindset focused on the main goal which is to get wins.” PDS head coach Scott Bertoli credits Petruolo with bringing a lot to the table for the Panthers. “You are going to play Division I hockey for a reason, the kid is highly talented,” said Bertoli of Petruolo. “He is a difference maker, the kid can control the pace of the game. He has always had a high skill level, he can shoot a puck harder than anyone I have seen at this level.” The Panthers displayed skill and intensity collectively as they battled Don Bosco tooth-and-nail all over the ice. “The second period was probably the best hockey I have seen here in 10 years, outside of going to Baker Rink and watching Princeton,” said Bertoli. “I became more of fan of the game than a coach in the second and third periods. I just got so caught up in the action. I love just watching our kids play and compete. We were forced to play at that level, otherwise that game could have gotten away from us. They are that talented, their first line is outstanding, two of those three kids are going to play college hockey, without question.” While Bertoli was disappointed that PDS came up short, he had no qualms about the effort he got from his players. “I like the way our team h a s c o m p e te d i n t i g h t games, even though the result didn’t go the way we all wanted it to go,” said Bertoli. “I walked into the locker room and commended them on their effort and their ability to play and compete with that team.” As Bertoli looks ahead to the stretch drive, he is confident that his squad will keep competing hard. “My guess is that, more often than not, the rest of the way, we will be the better team and with that comes the responsibility of playing the game the right way and bringing the effort, energy, and focus each time out,” said Bertoli, whose team, now 8-4, plays at the Hill School (Pa.) on January 10 before heading to New England to play at Portsmouth Abbey School (R.I.) on January 12 and at Worcester Academy (Mass.) on January 13. “If we can do that, I like our chances in every game that we play, that is not to say that we are going to win every game. We have some tough league (Mid-Atlantic Hockey L eag ue ) games ; Hun is coming in and Lawrenceville is coming in and Hill is strong. Those are all going to be good, tough tests.” Petr uolo, for his par t, believes that the Panthers should be in the hunt for both the state Prep and MAHL titles. “We are definitely capable of winning both of those championships,” said Petruolo. “When we play big teams like this, we are really gunning for it and step up our game. The whole intensity is lifted.” —Bill Alden

Looking to Get Sharper at Defensive End, PHS Boys’ Hockey Primed for Busy Week Even though Tim Chase was disappointed by the result as his Princeton High boys’ hockey team fell 2-0 to Wayne Hills last Sunday evening, he views the game as a valuable learning experience for his squad. “Today’s outcome is a part of success down the road,” said PHS head coach Chase, who got 21 saves from goalie Harry Skopas as the Little Tigers dropped to 7-2-2. “They see we have to be quicker, we have to be going after that puck all of the time. No team is very good when it isn’t jumping on loose pucks.” PHS got 2018 off to a very good start with a 10-1 win over Steinert last Wednesday. “It is nice to put the puck in t he net and w in t he game,” said Chase. “It has been good, all lines have been scoring.” Ben Drezner and Rocco Salvato triggered the offense in the win over the Spartans as Drezner tallied three goals and an assist while Salvato contributed three assists. “Ben is a hard worker, being on a line with two guys with a lot of skill (Aidan Trainor and Salvato), he creates a lot of havoc on the ice,” said Chase. “He is not afraid to sit in front of the net and get those rebounds, and it has been paying off for us. Ben is very fast and gritty so he is helping that line out a lot by being an annoyance to the other team. Salvato has been passing and moving the puck real well, he sees the ice well.” Having Hun School transfer Keith Goldberg on the ice after he sat out the first 30 days of the season under


Route 206 • Belle Mead

NJSIAA rules is a plus for the Little Tigers. “It definitely brings another guy who controls the flow of the game,” said Chase of Goldberg, who tallied two goals in the win over Steinert. “It is good to have him in the lineup.” With PHS slated to play Notre Dame on January 10, South Brunswick on January 12, and Westfield on January 13, Chase is looking for his players to up their game. “That is where we need to see what the guys can do; if we want to go anywhere in the playoffs or the states, we have got to perform against those type of teams,” said Chase. “They are fired up for that game against Notre Dame. It is a big rivalry for these

guys, so hopefully we can get our legs going.” PHS has to get things going at the defensive end in order to compete with the tougher teams. “I think the big issue with our team right now is that we are too soft in our zone,” said Chase. “Playing up here against Wayne Hills, they just moved the puck around in our zone too easily. Our guys are not as aggressive in the defensive zone as they should be.” In Chase’s view, the Little Tigers are headed in the right direction. “It is a process with this team, our focus is the end of the year,” said Chase. “Whether we lose or win, it is getting us all on the same page so at the end of the year when we want to make our push, we are ready to go.” —Bill Alden

BIG BEN: Princeton High boys’ hockey player Ben Drezner goes after the puck in recent action. Last Wednesday, Drezner tallied three goals and an assist as PHS defeated Steinert 10-1 in its first game of 2018. The Little Tigers, who dropped to 7-2-2 with a 2-0 loss at Wayne Hills last Sunday, play Notre Dame on January 10 at the Mercer County Skating Center, South Brunswick on January 12 at Pro Skate, and Westfield on January 13 at the Union Sports Arena.

With Senior Standout Petruolo Leading Defense, PDS Boys’ Hockey Excelling Against Tough Foes


Hun Swimming Stressing Improvement; Producing a Positive Team Camaraderie For Joan Nuse, the main focus in coaching the Hun School swimming program is more on development than the win-loss record. “The main thing for all of our kids is just to watch them get better and work on improving,” said Hun head coach Nuse, whose coed team topped Hamilton West 99-71 last Saturday to improve 1-1. In Nuse’s view, her swimmers work very well together. “For a second year in a row, we are very young and that makes it so they have a lot of good camaraderie,” said Nuse. “They are very enthusiastic; it is fun to be dealing with all of them. The big thing is that these kids get along really, really well. I think it is because most of the kids are freshmen and sophomores.” While the team only has a few club-level swimmers, they have made a big impact as competitors and mentors. “The club kids are really good at trying to help out with the other kids; we have a couple of kids who used to swim in a swim club and they aren’t any more,” said Nuse. “They are always at practice, so they are really helpful. If a kid comes in and doesn’t know how to do a flip turn or do a start, the other kids will really help them.” While Hun opened the season by falling 60-33 to George School (Pa.) in December, Nuse was encouraged by the team’s performance. “I was pretty pleased with how we did, we are a coed team and we have more girls than guys,” said Nuse.

“The fact that in order to beat us, George had to swim their boys was a good sign that we are pretty solid.” Nuse has been getting solid efforts from her top girl swimmers, sophomore Abbie Danko, junior Emily Ryan, and sophomore Grace Davis. Danko took first in the 200 individual medley and 500 freestyle in the win over Hamilton, while Ryan won the 100 breaststroke and placed third in 100 butterfly, and Davis prevailed in the 200 free and second in the 100 free. “They have their specialties but because they know what they need to do to help us, they will contribute and be really flexible to swim whatever we need which is great,” said Nuse. “Abbie loves to swim other things but a lot of time, I will make her swim the 500 freestyle and the butterfly because there are only so many people I have who can do that, and that is a really hard combo to do. She does it without ever complaining. They are all like whatever you need us to do.” As for the team’s boy swimmers, sophomore Josh Nguyen, senior Henry Claisse, and sophomore Andrew Petty have been leading the way. Nguyen won the 50 free and 100 backstroke against Hamilton while Claisse took second in the 200 IM and 100 breast and Petty placed third in the 500 free and fourth in the 100 fly. “Josh is not a club swimmer, but he is a good swimmer for us. Henry Claisse is another one of our good swimmers; he used to be a club swimmer,” said Nuse.

“They are both great kids, both are super competitive. I know that if they go in, especially in a relay, and they are close, we have a really good chance to win. Andrew Petty is a club swimmer for us. He is good swimmer, he is really coming along.” The positive environment around the team should help it excel when it culminates the season by competing in the Mid-Atlantic Prep League (MAPL) and state Prep A championships. “It is great to aim for those last two meets, the MAPLs and the states,” said Nuse, whose team is next in action when it swims at the Blair Academy on January 10. “One of the things that we try to do is to help them achieve the times that they would like to achieve at those big meets. Last year, our club kids were actually getting better times with us at those big meets than they got all season with their club teams. I think it is the team, that is a big factor.” With 24 swimmers on the roster this winter, the foundation is in place for good times ahead. “Most of them are back. There are a few that moved or who are no longer at the school,” said Nuse, noting that assistant coaches Carell Brown and Ken Riley have played a key role in creating the positive atmosphere around the team. “We have so many back and we gained a few. Because the kids were telling their friends how much fun they were having, we had other kids come out and they decided to swim. They are not necessarily swimmers and they will get better.” —Bill Alden

After D.C. Tourney, Game at Citi Field in NYC, Hun Boys’ Hockey Back in N.J. for Stretch Drive

Over the last few weeks, the Hun School boys’ hockey team has been on quite an odyssey. From December 28-30, Hun was based in the Washington D.C. area as it competed in the Purple Puck Tournament. The Raiders started 2018 by making a trip to Flushing, N.Y. last Wednesday where they faced Don Bosco at Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets, the site of the NHL’s Winter Classic two days earlier. In the view of Hun head coach Ian McNally, t he team’s journey got off to a good start in D.C. “The point of going is to jell a little bit; it is our one extended road trip,” said McNally. The guys are staying on their own without their parents and getting the chance to have team meals and all of that stuff, so that part went great. The kids had a good time; we were there for two nights.” On the ice, the Raiders went 2-1 in pool play at the Purple Puck, posting wins over Archbishop Spaulding High (Md.) and Georgetown Prep (Md.) and falling to Loyola High (Quebec). In a consolation contest, Hun lost 5 -1 to Regis Jesuit (Colo.). “I t w a s to u g h to g e t through. There were 10 teams, you played three randomly allotted teams, and then they chose the top four teams to compete in the semis,” said McNally, noting that the competition employed a scoring system that involved points for winning periods as well as games to determine the standings. “ We d i d a l r i g h t . We dropped t he f irs t game and that unfortunately set us back. We had get to all the period points going forward; we missed out on a couple even though we won the games. It was still great for us.” Hun got great production from junior forward Kyle Mandleur, who scored 10 goals on the weekend. “I have to put in the scores and taking a look at his stats, even I was taken aback at the amount of times he scored multiple goals, “He went four in row with a hat trick, three in the tournament and one right before ALL HANDS ON DECK: Members of the Hun School swimming team enjoy the moment after they it. That is unheard of.” defeated Hamilton West 99-71 last Saturday. The Raiders, now 1-1, swim at Blair Academy on M a n d l e u r’s l i n e m ate s, January 10. freshman Matt Argentina and senior Guillaume Hebert, also starred at the competition. “Matt is a skilled player Sales and Service since 1927 too, and he is finding his 2454 Route 206 Belle Mead, NJ 08502 · 908-359-8131 way as a freshman.

substantially improved from last year. That is a nice bonus, because he plays the game the right way and he plays hard. Guys can count on him for the little things.” The Raiders received a special bonus when their game against Don Bosco was moved to Citi Field. “They called us a month before that and said we have this unique opportunity,” said McNally, noting that Don Bosco had played a game at Yankee Stadium when the Winter Classic was held there in 2016. “We took a week to decide. At first it seemed like it was too big to undertake in a short period of time, but then the whole school got behind it. They changed the schedule for the day and let everybody out early. They had buses; there were probably 500 people from Hun there.” T he t r ip to Cit i Field proved to be a unique experience for the Hun players. “It is unbelievably cool to be at ice level and look around and see basically two professional stadiums at once; you are on the ice and looking at the stadium boards and lights in CitiField,” recalled McNally. “We were in the visitor’s dugout and locker room. We were in this massive baseball locker room and we needed an eighth of the space. You walk out through the dugout and then the field opens up

in front of you. The kids got jerseys for the event and all of their parents, friends, and families were there.” Although Hun fell 8-1 to Don Bosco, taking part in the event will leave indelible memories. “You are caught up in the game, you want to try as hard as you can for all of the people that came and try to keep it tight and give them a game,” said McNally, acknowledging that Don Bosco is having a special season as it is undefeated and ranked No. 1 in New Jersey. “The kids will never forget it. It was a professional experience for them.” Now Hun will be remaining in New Jersey for a while as it hosts Wyoming Seminary (Pa.) on January 10 and Seton Hall Prep on January 11 before playing at Lawrenceville on January 15. “We are in this Mid-Atlantic Hockey League (MAHL) and we have only played one game against LaSalle, we lost 7-6 and it was a good game,” said McNally, whose team is now 7-4-1. “Now we have got five of them coming up in a row. The focus is trying to make the playoffs in the league, four of the seven teams make it so everybody is still in the hunt. We would love to take a run at that. The good news is that, aside from the Bosco game, who is at another level, we have played our best against Holy Ghost and Mo-Beard, the times we have been tested.” —Bill Alden

ROAD WORK: Hun School boys’ hockey Guillaume Hebert heads up the ice in a game earlier this season. Senior forward Hebert has emerged as a scoring threat for Hun this winter. The Raiders, who fell 8-1 to Don Bosco last Wednesday at Citi Field in Flushing, N.Y. after competing in the Purple Puck Tournament in the Washington, D.C. area from December 29-30, are back in New Jersey for a busy week.

Allison Cook Elston Allison Cook Elston, 87, of Edmond, Oklahoma and a native of Princeton, died December 31st. A lifelong supporter of music and the arts, Mrs. Elston was the widow of James L. Elston, her loving husband of 51 years, a retired attorney and professor of political science at the University of Arkansas. He died in October 2016. She was the daughter of George R. Cook III and Margaretta Roebling Cook of Princeton and Naples, Fla. She attended Miss Fine’s School and graduated from Garrison Forest School. She made her debut in 1948.

You’ve finally found it - the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood. You’re prequalified. You’re ready to make an offer. The only problem: It’s not for sale. Or is it? Just because a home isn’t on the market, that doesn’t mean the owners aren’t ready and willing to sell. The only way to know for sure: Ask.

But before you go knocking on any doors, it’s probably a good idea to talk to a real esURY 2 & 3 BEDROOMS / 2 BATH APARTMENT HOMES tate agent. First, an agent will be able to determine a fair offering price to get the ball

rolling. Second, the agent may know of other similar houses that are already on the market and within your budget. And third - and maybe most importantly - as a real estate professional, there’s a much better chance the homeowner will take your interest and your offer more seriously if they’re presented by a licensed agent than they would if you knock on their door - or even send a letter - yourself.

 Obviously, the easier path to homeownership is through homes already listed for sale. BALCONIES
