Princeton Protestors, Experts at State House Press Peace Agenda
Calling for the option of U.S. military intervention to be taken off the table completely in Venezuela, about 30 demonstrators gathered on Nassau Street in Palmer Square on Monday, carrying signs reading “No U.S. War in Venezuela!” The event, sponsored by the Princetonbased Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA) in collaboration with Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), started at 5 p.m. and lasted about an hour. Demonstrators urged passers-by to write to members of Congress asking them to sponsor the Prohibiting Unauthorized Military Action in Venezuela Act. They also distributed fliers, which stated: “The U.S. is trying to overthrow the Maduro government with military threats, economic warfare, and diplomatic isolation. But the solutions for the problems in Venezuela are for the Venezuelans to decide. The peace movement must oppose U.S. intervention and support a resolution through peaceful dialogue!” CFPA Executive Director the Rev. Robert Moore applauded the collaboration with the DSA, which he called “an important force for progressive causes.” He added, “It’s important to seek synergy and do activities collaboratively. We all need each other.”

Bill Introduced Opposing Choir College Sale Six members of the New Jersey Assembly have introduced a resolution that opposes Rider University’s sale of Westminster Choir College to a for-profit company partially owned by the Chinese government, saying it could jeopardize national security. Assemblyman Harold “Hal” Wirths, a Republican who represents Morris, Sussex, and Warren counties, introduced the bill on March 5. It is co-sponsored by fellow Republican Assemblymen Parker Space, Robert Auth, John Di Maio, Erik Peterson, and Kevin J. Rooney. The bill is also expected to be submitted to the New Jersey Senate. “Given that Kaiwen Education, formerly a steel company, does not have a history in higher education, particularly professional music training, and with the multitude of world-class scientists, researchers, and institutions located in Princeton, it appears that the Chinese government may be using the guise of academia to infiltrate the choir college for nefarious purposes, including the collection of United States intelligence and intellectual property theft,” their statement reads. The resolution is the latest effort to
block the sale of the Choir College, which merged with Rider in 1992. Rider president Gregory Dell’Omo announced in 2016 that Rider was seeking a buyer for Westminster. In October 2017, it was announced that the new owner would be a Chinese company, Kaiwen Education, which was offering $40 million for the Princeton campus, plus another $16 million to be invested in programs and infrastructure. While Rider has entered into a purchase
and sale agreement with Kaiwen, there are two lawsuits pending, as well as an arbitration case by the Rider chapter of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). A decision by the New Jersey Attorney General’s office on whether the sale is legal is expected in the next week, according to Constance Fee, president of the Westminster Foundation and an alumna of the renowned music school.

Ten-Year Renovation Transforms Princeton U’s Firestone Library After 10 years, Princeton University has completed the renovation of its main campus library, the Harvey S. Firestone Memorial Library, and the result is “a building to support modern library services and contemporary approaches to scholarship,” the University reports, with lots more light, open spaces, and flexible study and work areas. “In short,” a University press release states, “the goal was to transform Firestone Library into an innovative 21st-
century library,” and the transformations are dramatically visible on each of the six main floors. The classic Gothic exterior of the 70-year-old library, one of the largest open-stack libraries in existence, has been maintained, but the decade of renovations has changed virtually every space in the 430,000-square-foot interior. The renovation also incorporated a number of sustainable features to improve Continued on Page 10

Earlier in the day Moore, along with Princeton University physicists and nuclear weapons experts Zia Mian and Frank von Hippel, testified in support of anti-nuclear Resolution 230 at a hearing before the New Jersey State Assembly Science, Innovation, and Technology Committee. Resolution 230, which urges the federal government to ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and pursue other measures to reduce the danger of nuclear war, passed the committee, which Assemblyman Andrew Zwicker chairs. He will be requesting that it go before the full Assembly later this month. “As a scientist who has colleagues who work on nuclear nonproliferation issues, this is a topic that deeply, deeply concerns me,“ Zwicker said. “I’m aware of the horrible destruction, devastation, loss of life, and change of environment that would occur if anyone were to use nuclear weapons.”

One returning artist is Emily “estrange” Lewis, who was homeless when she first participated in ArtJam, but now has a degree from Parsons School of Design and is a successful artist. Another Artspace artist, Aileen O., described her journey: “I left working as a registered nurse in a level 1 trauma burn surgical intensive care unit and was broken; I took care of others with intensity and passion, but neglected myself.

When you’re doing something good, people want to get on board. We’re delighted that Palmer Square is giving us the space and all these businesses are helping us with the food.” Traylor described some of the HomeFront artists whose work will be on display at ArtJam. “We include the self-taught,” she said. “We have artists who are living in HomeFront’s Family Preservation Center who have never exhibited ar t work before.”

She continued, â€œSince preschool age, I have always loved creating ar t. ArtSpace can be seen as a luxury, yet what it offers is essential for the soul. To be given permission to stop the daily bustle and rush, to be allowed, encouraged, supported in the pursuit of creativityâ€”priceless.â€?

ArtSpace for her is a vital part of HomeFront. â€œItâ€™s great for the people who live here,â€? she said. â€œIt really helps to block out everything else going on.

John Goedecke, chairman of the Princeton Regional Chamber of Com merce, and Lou Wagman, executive director of the New Jersey Entrepreneurial Net work ( NJEN ), have announced that their two organizations have agreed to consolidate.

By building a stronger net work, the organizations are hoping to increase innovation and creativity, helping businesses and entrepreneurs gain more success. Crowley added, â€œThe combination of these two organizations will result in the Chamber better recognizing and discovering new business opportunities.

Joseph P. Riley, Jr., whose four decades as mayor of Charleston, North Carolina, transformed the city from an urban wasteland to a highly desirable place to live, visit, and do business, came to Princeton last week to share his success story. Riley was invited by The Princeton Festival, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary and looking to the popular, annual Spoleto Festival USA, which Riley is credited with establishing
in Charleston, for inspiration. On Thursday evening at Monument Hall, he spoke to some 30 local merchants, business, and municipal leaders about the key role the summer arts festival, and historic preservation, played in Charleston’s revival. “Our vision is to become a destination festival,” said Benedikt Von Schroeder, a board member of The Princeton Festival, upon introducing Riley. “We want to enhance Princeton’s role as a
cultural destination over the next 15 years.” Efforts to establish the Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston as a sister to the Festival of the 2 Worlds in Spoleto, Italy, were stymied at first. “Plenty of people wondered why we were getting involved with this Italian arts festival,” Riley said. “There was this challenge of fundraising and communicating why it was important. And we sold it. Because the arts are a multiplier of en-
School Matters 101: Fund Benefit to Support PHS Graduates The Ides O’ March Madness, the annual 101: Fund benefit and silent auction in support of scholarships for Princeton High School (PHS) graduates with financial need, will be held at Princeton University’s Cloister Inn eating club on Saturday March 16 at 7 p.m. Guests are encouraged to come dressed casually in Irish green, togas, or their favorite March Madness team jersey. “Our annual benefit event, Ides O’ March Madness, follows our tradition of hosting a fun, informal theme party that connects the Princeton and Cranbury communities,” said 101: Fund Benefit Co-Chair Roxanne List. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with friends and neighbors, while supporting a local cause that’s meaningful to the PHS community.” Tickets start at $125 per person, and can be purchased at the door or online at www. fund101.org. Founded in 1970 and operating as the Princeton Regional Scholarship Foundation until 2008, the 101: Fund has provided more than $1 million in aid to PHS seniors over the past 12 years.
PDS Announces Summer Research Internships Seven Princeton Day School juniors in this year’s Research Experience (REx) program, directed by science teacher Carrie Norin, have secured research-based summer internships at an array of prestigious universities and other institutions around the country. Krista Caasi will study the epidemiology of depression at Harvard University/Massachusetts General Hospital; Andrew Ciccarone will investigate fatigue performance on steel highway bridges in Lehigh University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering; Alex DiNovi will focus on modeling Arctic Sea ice melt at Princeton University/ NOAA; and Fechi Inyama will measure bioaccumulation of contaminants in wetlands in Rutgers University’s Department of Environmental Sciences. Madison Izzard will analyze movement ecology of sharks at the University of Rhode Island Department of Biological Sciences; Sachin Patel will investigate understanding language recovery after a stroke at Johns Hopkins University Center of Excellence in Stroke Detection and Diagnosis; and Luigi Soriano will investigate the genomics of neuroblastoma at Harvard University/Dana Farber Cancer Institute.
ergy, vision, enthusiasm, and culture. For Charleston, you can date it before Spoleto, and after Spoleto.” The city was “down at the heels” in the mid-1970s, Riley said. “It still had not really recovered from the Civil War. The heart of the city was a vacant lot. It was pretty beat up. And we knew the festival would give it renewed energy.” Riley’s administration was careful to involve the local community from the beginning, he said. The festival began small but now includes 17 days of performances ranging from free concerts on the waterfront and steps of the city’s Customs House, to ticketed events in theaters. “We wanted to make it accessible to everyone,” Riley said. “We wanted the community to feel that the festival was theirs, at all incomes. It gave citizens the membership in the big deal, even if they weren’t at the expensive performances.” During a question and answer period, resident Joel Schwartz asked Riley how the city had turned abandoned buildings into affordable housing. It has been a priority from the beginning of the city’s revival, Riley responded. “We didn’t want to lose any structures. And we believed strongly in affordable housing,” he said. “We created a world-class shelter for the homeless and we formed some housing nonprofits, one at a time. That kept these houses from coming down, in neighborhoods that had been falling apart. Restoring them became developmental. It saved our city and kept neighborhoods intact.”
James Steward, director of the Princeton University Ar t Museum, asked how much existing infrastructure was used in establishing the Spoleto festival in the city. “It wasn’t huge. We had one great space for chamber music, but not much else,” Riley said. Jill Barry, director of Morven Museum and Garden, asked how long it took to see the growth the city was seeking. Riley said that the festival’s founder, composer Gian Carlo Menotti, was “amazing but challenging, and that created some hiccups with the board. So it took about seven years. But we had a strategic plan, and we stuck to it.” R ich G it tleman of t he Princeton Merchants Association asked Riley how restrictive Charleston’s historic preservation laws were on the business community. Riley joked that the town’s historical society was often called the hysterical society. “But we’re very flexible in terms of adaptive reuse,” he said. “Every building saved is a vibrant achievement.” Asked about parking issues, Riley said Charleston did a study that recommended new parking facilities. “We made them, and
we made them beautiful,” he said. “We also put in trolleys to take people from the parking garage to the downtown.” To deal with gentrification, “ keep creating affordable housing,” he said. “That’s the pressing challenge in the American city. It’s a national issue.” Riley left municipal government in 2016, but is still active in Charleston and is currently a professor at his alma mater, The Citadel, in a professorship that has been named for him. His legacy project, Charleston’s International African American Museum located on the site of the wharf where enslaved Africans took their first steps in this country, is about to break ground. “He is a remarkable fellow,” said regional planner Ralph Widner, who was instrumental in bringing Riley, his friend for years, to Princeton. “When he took over, Charleston was very stagnant and the downtown was dead. It had a serious racial problem. He became a valiant civil rights leader and urban designer for the town. And you can see the results.” —Anne Levin

Westminster Sale continued from page one
If the sale is ruled to be illegal, the lawsuits will remain in place, Fee said. “At this point, the Foundation’s number one goal would be for Rider to come to their senses, and go back to the way things were. The second goal is to merge with a n ot h e r v iabl e p a r t n e r. There is a lot of research going on behind the scenes to make sure there is a Plan B in place.” Assemblyman Wirths said he became aware of the situation when alumni of Westminster reached out to him and other members of state government. “When I first heard about it, it was tough to imagine,” he said on Monday. “The Chinese gover nment has been in the news a lot lately. The more I looked into it, the more it didn’t make sense to me why they’d be buying a nearly 100-year-old choir college in Princeton.” T he resolut ion oppos ing the sale includes the statement, “Although often thought of as primarily a college town because of its association with Princeton University, Princeton is home to many worldrenowned research centers in high technology, defense, and cyber space, and is a center of studies for the United States Intelligence community.” “I think a lot of people don’t realize what is going on,” said Wirths. “The Chinese have been kicked out of 10 American colleges, as well as schools in Canada and the U.K. With Princeton home to world class scientists, this is about security.” Asked for comment about the resolution, Rider spokesperson Kristine Brown wrote in an email: “A f ter a comprehens ive process that concluded in

We are diligently taking the required steps to close this transaction and to ensure that the transition will be as smooth as possible for everyone. To that end, Rider and Kaiwen are working closely with all the required regulatory and legal authorities, at both the state and federal levels, as well as with the appropriate higher education accreditation organizations.” —Anne Levin
Landscaping Series From Lambertville Goes Wild
Lambertville Goes Wild (LGW) will sponsor a twopart learning series “Learn to Landscape: Dream, Design, and Detail” at the Lambertville Public Library, 6 Lilly Street. Lauren Kovacs, a landscape architect with over 10 years of experience in sustainable landscape design, will guide participants through their design practice: from dreaming up a garden style, through designing useful spaces, to understanding installation details. Session 1, “Dream,” will be held Saturday, March 23 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. Session 2: “Design,” is scheduled for Saturday, May 4 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. This program is free and open to all, but space is limited, so participants are advised to come early to ensure a place in the class. Lambertville Goes Wild is a volunteer group working to promote wider use of native plants as a key part of its aim to certify Lambertville as a Community Wildlife Habitat recognized by the National Wildlife Federation. To reach its goal,
several public spaces, such as parks and schools, and about 100 private properties need to support native species such as butterflies, birds, and bees by providing food, water, cover, and places to raise young. More information is available at LambertvilleGoesWild.weebly.com and on the Lambertville Goes Wild Facebook page.
Mary Poppins Purim At The Jewish Center

S u s t a i n ab l e P r i n c e to n a n d S u s t a i n ab l e J e r s e y have announced that Princeton has been awarded a $10,000 Sustainable Jersey grant funded by the Gardinier Env ironmental Fund. This grant will support Sustainable Princeton to educate and promote the community about Community Solar, a state-regulated program that will provide both renters and homeowners with a financially viable way to support the development of renewable energy sources. Community Solar farms, also referred to as a solar garden, allow community m e mb e r s to p a r t i c ip ate in the generation of solar power, even if they cannot or prefer not to install solar panels on their property. Solar farms are typically structured to provide subscribers with a cost savings on their utility bill. “This is a step in the right direction to addressing climate change,” said Molly Jones, executive director of Sustainable Princeton. “Par ticipation in Community Solar allows us to suppor t the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions produced through New Jersey’s electricity generation and passes utility bill savings to subscribing residents.” Sophie Glovier, chair of Princeton’s Environmental Commission and a member of Princeton’s Climate Action Plan Steering Committee said, “This is a win-win scenario for the environment and our community. Community Solar allows all Princeton community members to support clean energy, no matter their housing situation.” Unt i l n ow C om m u n it y Solar hasn’t been legally allowable in New Jersey, but within the month, the NJ Board of Public Utilities is expected to provide final regulations for a three-year
megawatts in Community Solar projects each year ( suf f icient power for an estimated 35,000-40,000 h ou s e h old s ) . D e velop e d to help meet New Jersey’s Clean Energ y goals, the Community Solar program is particularly focused on projects that benefit low to moderate income earning residents. Within the next few months, Sustainable Princeton will be meeting with municipal leadership and affordable housing providers to further discuss this oppor tunit y. Once Com munity Solar subscription details are defined, a community-wide education campaign will be launched to encourage all residents to take advantage of this program. Pursuit of this C om m u n it y S olar g r a nt aligns with the strategies defined by Princeton’s Climate Action Plan, a strategic planning effort that Sustainable Princeton has lead over the last year, with the support of more than 50 community volunteers.

On March 8, at 8:09 a.m., a 43-year-old female from Manalapan was arrested for providing a false name to law enforcement, subsequent to a motor vehicle stop on Russell Road for a failure to inspect. She was also found to have a warrant for $165 out of Princeton in addition to being an unlicensed driver. On March 8, at 11:17 a.m., a caller reported that someone drove a vehicle onto the soccer fields of Smoyer Park, leaving deep tire tracks and ruts, damaging the field. This likely occurred overnight. This same damage was reported on February 13 and three other times in the past. On March 8, at 9:57 p.m., police stopped a pedes trian for suspected underage possession of alcohol. A 20-year-old male from Bethesda, Md., was arrested and also charged with possession of a fictitious driver’s license. On March 7, at 9:31 a.m., a caller reported that individuals entered an unlocked vehicle parked on Redding Circle on Februar y 1, at 10:30 p.m., and stole several sets of keys. The keys were later recovered. O n March 7, at 6 :18 p.m., a victim reported that sometime bet ween 9 :30 and 11:15 a.m. someone removed the Lexus emblem from their vehicle parked on Nassau Street. The front grille of the vehicle was damaged. On March 7, at 9:42 p.m., a victim reported that their iPhone 7 had just been stolen from a bench on Palmer Square East. According to their Find My iPhone app, the phone was moving north on Witherspoon Street. Patrols were unable to locate the phone. The value of the loss is $700. Unless otherwise noted, individuals arrested were later released.
A Princeton tradition!
Princeton Council voted on Monday, March 11 to introduce a 2019 budget of $64 million, which translates into an average rise of $83 for taxpayers, or a two percent increase. Other actions at the meeting included introduction of an ordinance to allow an affordable housing development at the former site of the SAVE animal shelter bordered by Herrontown Road, Mt. Lucas Road, and Old Orchard Lane. Budget The budget introduction is just the initial part of the annual process, and changes will likely be made before it is adopted. A public hearing on the budget will be held at the Council meeting on April 8. Municipal Administrator Marc Dashield thanked the staff and members of the Citizens Finance Advisory Committee (CFAC) for their work on the budget. He explained that though there is a decrease of $1.1 million from last year, the budget is actually higher. Last year, the town had a one-time expense of $2,126,000. As a result, the 2019 net increase in the expenditures is approximately $972,000. The biggest component of the increase is related to Princeton’s Fire Department, which is looking to transition from all-volunteer to a combination of volunteer and paid firefighters because of dwindling volunteerism. The approximate figure of $810,000 for fire department expenditures
is a worst-case scenario, Dashield said. Other top budget drivers for 2019 are police staffing, the contract for recycling, and a higher sewer authority payment. David Goldfarb, a member of the Stony Brook Regional Sewerage Authority, gave a report explaining why fees for that service are rising by two percent in individual par ticipant charges, and seven percent for the town. The culprit is an increase in rainfall last year, the amount of which was factored into a five-year average of the projected flow. “Princeton’s sewage system is older and leakier than others in the Authority,” Goldfarb said. “We are trying very hard to identify and fix the leaky areas.” Affordable Housing Site The three-acre prop erty proposed for affordable housing is owned by Charles Yedlin, who previously planned to build an office complex on the site. Yedlin was approached by the town about changing from his original plan for an office building and he agreed to make the switch to a building that would be 100 percent dedicated to affordable one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. “This had been approved for an office building in 2017, but the office market is very soft,” said the town’s Municipal Planner Michael LaPlace. “The owner was approached, and was open to other ideas. It fits in with a lot of the goals of the mas-
ter plan for Princeton to pursue affordable housing opportunities.” The town held a meeting with neighbors of Old Orchard Lane and Mt. Lucas Road last month, and heard concerns about the height of the building, which would be four stories in one area and three stories in another. The plan has shifted somewhat since then, LaPlace said. The site is accessible to public transpor tation on Route 206. Efforts would be made by the developer, RPM Development Company, to be sustainable and LEED cer tified. “The drainage area at Mt. Lucas and Herrontown roads was carefully engineered with the previous site plan, so we have kept it and will work around it,” LaPlace said. —Anne Levin

He continued, “Also I’ve been f r us t rated by t he partisan gridlock in Congress. As a state legislator I felt an obligation to try to do something. I’m working with world-renowned colleagues, Mian and von Hippel. Highlighting the importance of our country entering into a treaty that calls for the abolition of nuclear weapons is critical.” Moore noted that “arms control has taken a turn south, undermined by the Tr u m p a d m i n i s t r at i o n . There are definitely alarm bells going off in the expert community, and they should be going off in the general community.” Moore pointed out that Resolution 230, even if it passes the full Assembly later this month, is not binding. “But it’s valuable in generating grass roots democracy,” he said, “using the tools of democracy as an engine to advocate for disarmament and peace.” —Donald Gilpin
the energy-efficiency of the building. T he or iginal Firestone building and the renovated interior “are dedicated to creating an atmosphere of a ‘humanistic laboratory’ that provides spaces of comfort and delight and supports opportunities for inspiration and contemplation,” said Princeton University Architect Ron McCoy. Firestone is one of nine locations within Princeton University Library (PUL). Re n ov at i o n w or k w a s done in multiple phases so that the building, which is central to teaching and research at Princeton, could remain open. “One of the greatest challenges during this renovation was undergoing construction while patrons continued to use the library,” said Director of Library Finance and Administration Jeffrey Rowlands. “As Princeton University’s main library, keeping Firestone open during the renovation was impor tant. It required extensive detailed planning and the ability to be flexible.” Rowlands went on to cite increased usage of the library as one measure of the success of the renovation project. During the past five years, Firestone has experienced a nearly 63 percent growth in the number of people coming to the library, he reported. University Librarian Anne Jarvis commented on the transformed Firestone Library in light of the challenges confronting 21stcentury university libraries. “The speed and scale of change facing academ ic librar ies in recent years has been unprecedented,” she said. “We are moving beyond the concept of a library as a finite place with traditional collections to that of a library as a partner in research, teaching, and learning. Having stateof-the-art facilities is essential to providing expert guidance, discoverability, and access to the world’s
Chamber of Commerce Presents Industry Update
The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce’s annual Mercer County Industry Update on March 28 will report on health care, insurance, education, and the pharmaceutical industry. The event is at Mercer Oaks, 725 Village Road, West Windsor, from 8 to 10:30 a.m. The update will provide attendees with an overview of industry trends in the region, and will include perspectives from four industry leaders. Sean Hopkins of the New Jersey Hospital Association, Mike Van Wagner of NJM Insurance Group, Roberto Vieira of Bristol-Myers Squibb, and John Thurber of Thomas Edison State University are the speakers.

rapidly evolving knowledge resources.” Some of the new facilities include high-level security and environmentallycontrolled storage facilities in rare books and special collections, which provide secure access to materials that range from an Egyptian Book of the Dead (circa 1250 BCE) to the papers of Nobel Laureate and Princeton Professor Emeritus Toni Morrison; a digital imaging studio, enabling expanded digitization of books and other library materials, providing free access to people around the world; a conservation lab to enhance preservation of materials; graduate study rooms near core subject collections; and the new Ellen and Leonard Milberg Gallery. The Milberg Gallery and the Cotsen Children’s Library are both open to the public. In noting that “one of the guiding principles of the renovation was to open up the building to the light,” Rowlands emphasized the central role of students’ involvement in the planning process. “Students have different needs for study,” he said. “We tried to accommodate different styles for what students wanted in terms of study space.” Rowlands went on to discuss his goal “to make sure that the design elements did not overshadow the function of the space.” He noted, “I was there to push back when I thought, ‘the students are not going to like that,’ or ‘that is not going to function for them.’” PUL holdings include 10 million printed volumes, two million located in Firestone, as well as five million manuscripts, 400,000 rare or significant printed works, thousands of journals, and two million non-print items in over 200 languages. PUL also provides onsite and remote access to extensive collections of databases, digital text, data, and images.

Princeton Eye Group Helps Patients in Need
Princeton Eye Group recently held “PEG Cares Day,” t he bra i nch i ld of Rutgers University student Katerina Liu, daughter of PEG surgeon and partner, Dr. Samuel Liu. The day, staffed by volunteer employees of Princeton Eye Group, provided those in need with eye exams at no cost. According to Katerina Liu, “The patients were referred by the Bristol-Myers Squibb Clinic at the Medical Center of Princeton. Our goal is to treat those who do not have health insurance or the ability to pay.” Several of the doctors from PEG have embarked on medical missions around the globe. “W hen I dis cussed the possibility of Katerina joining me on an international surgical mission, she instead suggested that there are many patients who live locally who are in need of charity care,” said Dr. Liu. “So, Katerina came up with the idea of providing compassionate care for local patients in need. She organized and set up PEG Cares Day for the first time last year, and we are continuing this today.” Following a workup by volunteer technicians, all patients received a consultation with Dr. Liu. Those requiring glasses were referred to the Optical Shoppe and offered glasses for as little as $25 a pair, with payment plans spread out
without interest so as not to burden the patient. “This was our second of what is sure to be many PEG Cares Days,” remarked Dr. Liu. “Service is part of our DNA – whether it is traveling with Doctors Without Borders, or volunteering time at local clinics and schools, all of our partners and staff believe in the importance of giving back to our community. It is rewarding to make an impact for some of those closest to us who would not otherwise have access to expert eye care.” “I am so proud of my dad and the team at PEG,” said Katerina Liu. “The gratitude expressed by the patients and the looks on their faces and those of their family members makes it all worthwhile, to say the least.”

Tim Quinn Will Maintain Town’s “Close Neighborhood” Vibe
To the Editor: We live in a great town! I was born and raised here as a little lad; and I remember how well the majority of community members got along and were good neighbors. We had neighborhood block parties and socialized often by just sitting on porches and talking. Many of the children, regardless of race, economic status, or the part of town they lived in would come together to play. We grew up respecting everyone. This same sense of community that I enjoyed during my childhood is the same kind of community that Councilman Tim Quinn would welcome back with open arms. I have served in the role of Township Committeeman and Princeton Councilman for 15 years. I know what it takes to get the job done. This is why I am supporting Councilman Tim Quinn for re-election. I have been impressed with how Tim approaches issues. Tim’s listening skills and professional demeanor have worked well with getting the town’s business done. From working on neighborhood zoning initiatives to finding safe pathways for pedestrians and bicyclists, Tim has been an advocate for maintaining the “close neighborhood” vibe of Princeton. We want to keep Princeton a welcoming and safe community. Tim’s support of the recent hiring of new police personnel just confirms his insight to keep Princeton in the forefront when it comes to maintaining quality law enforcement. Tim’s knowledge and constant research of cost saving approaches for the town is remarkable. Tim has communicated how to share services with entities like the Princeton School System or Princeton University to help reduce spending. I support Tim because he is always thinking outside the box to make Princeton a better town. A vote for Councilman Tim Quinn is a vote for a safe, welcoming, cost efficient, and caring Princeton.

Letter to Mayor Lempert on Route 1 Traffic Issue, With Response
Dear Mayor Lempert: Last Sunday, (March 3) at about 1 p.m. I drove out to Route 1 on Harrison Street. Alexander Road was closed. The traffic backup extended back from Route 1 all the way to the bridge. And my wife had driven back into Princeton on Washington Road about an hour earlier and had noticed a similar backup there for traffic heading to Route 1 from Princeton. If this was the situation in the middle of a Sunday afternoon in March, I can only imagine (or maybe I can’t) the nightmare we are going to be faced with when Alexander is closed for eight months because of the bridge replacement. We have been told that this is a NJDOT project and that it must be done, and I accept that albeit reluctantly. (I am aware that the Dinky service to the Junction will be resuming and while this will eliminate the problem for NJ Transit riders going to the Junction, it will have little to no impact on vehicular traffic in general.) The impact of what is coming will be profound. And the health and safety of Princeton residents will be significantly compromised because ambulances will not be able to navigate out Harrison Street to the hospital without being caught up in traffic with no way to get around it due to the constrictions of Harrison Street. The only thing I can think of, not being a traffic engineer, is that Princeton must encourage the DOT to figure out how the traffic lights at the intersection of Route 1 and Harrison and Washington must be adjusted in order to allow more time for traffic leaving Princeton to access Route 1. This is imperative, at a minimum. And this study should begin immediately. I truly do not believe that the scope of what is to come for Princeton residents has been anticipated. ALAN Y. MEDVIN Longview Drive Response from Mayor Lempert: “Thanks for this suggestion. We are in discussions with NJDOT.” Continued on Next Page

Princeton Needs Mia Sacks’s Voice, Energy in Planning Future
To the Editor: It is rare that a candidate for local office elicits the enthusiasm and confidence with which I endorse Mia Sacks for Princeton Council. It is time for Princeton to undertake a comprehensive review of our zoning code and municipal planning processes through the lens of social justice. Princeton’s Master Plan and land use ordinances should be updated to more robustly reflect our community values of diversity and inclusion. Mia’s extensive background in civil liberties advocacy combined with her experience on the Planning Board provide her with the requisite tools to participate in this crucial work. For Princeton to become a community that is truly welcoming, we must do more than put signs proclaiming that value on our lawns. We must fully acknowledge and work to overcome our town’s segregated history. It is time to elect officials willing to go beyond rhetoric about equity to lead the way in making decisions that embrace affordable housing and progressive zoning policies. As a proven leader in the community and founding member of the Princeton Progressive Action Group, Mia has already demonstrated the conscientious hard work, expertise, and passion that will propel us forward. Princeton needs Mia’s voice on our Council and her energy in planning our future. I urge voters to join me in supporting Mia Sacks for Princeton Council and in voting for her on June 4.

“Do the Right Thing”: Endorsing Michelle Lambros and Tim Quinn
To the Editor: I am reaching out to the Princeton community and friends to share my support of Tim Quinn and Michelle Pirone Lambros for Princeton Council. I know some of you support other people in the race and I respect a difference of opinion. However, the future of Princeton is at stake. So I support a sense of history and a sense of where we are and the attributes that these two candidates display. They are both qualified, experienced, and committed to Princeton. The town is changing. Issues and community hot topics are multiplying and the town is not the quaint little college town it used to be. With that said, Tim represents continuity and Michelle represents new ideas. Both of these perspectives are needed on Council to support the great efforts of the other Council persons, the mayor, town administrator, and those talented people who work for the municipality and serve our community everyday. Tim Quinn and Michelle Pirone Lambros will be for good for Council. Good for the town. Good for seniors, youth, families, businesses, and the diverse population that live, work, play, go to school and call Princeton home. In the words of Spike Lee at this year’s Academy Awards ceremony, when he thanked everyone and encouraged them to “Do the Right Thing,” I am asking you to do the same and vote for Tim Quinn and Michelle Pirone Lambros for Princeton Council.

and ideals. Michelle’s formidable proposals, not least for providing community resources to Princeton’s most vulnerable families, reflect her bedrock Democratic values. So do her imaginative but entirely practicable solutions about supporting these proposals with partnerships between the municipality and the private sector. She combines a strong vision for the future with the kind of hard-won realism that makes change possible. In more than 50 years of political involvement, I have had the privilege to work for and with some extraordinary leaders, from Robert Kennedy and John Lewis to Hillary Clinton. In my nearly 40 years of living in Princeton, the community has been blessed with leaders of the caliber of Barbara Boggs Sigmund, Mildred Trotman, and Phyllis Marchand. Michelle Pirone Lambros is running for the Council in the spirit of those great Democrats, and I hope others will join me in voting for her on Sunday and again in the June primary.

Exploring Stanley Corngold’s Epic “Walter Kaufmann” Ahead of an Epic Book Sale But if, for instance, I read a good book ... it rouses me, satisfies me, suffices me. –Franz Kafka (1883-1924) eginning Friday morning Princeton Day School will become a vast encampment of the homeless, with some 80,000 supplicants looking to be adopted and appreciated, and perhaps passed on to a comfortable, fulfilled life in distinguished surroundings. The southern border is a trumpian tempest in a teapot compared to the numbers of refugees seeking asylum at the Bryn Mawr Wellesley Book Sale. Of course it’s nonsense, the idea that hard-nosed dealers, bibliophiles, and obsessive collectors will be paying $25 for the heartwarming satisfaction of giving homes to lifeless entities they actually intend to resell at a profit, or may never read, or may keep only to show off as collector’s ornaments. Still and all, “homeless” is the message spelled out when the doors close on the last day of the sale with multitudes ignored, abandoned, unwanted, scattered naked and alone on the tables, unclaimed after five hours at ten bucks a box. Kafka’s Here One author whose books usually find a home with patrons at the BMW sale is Franz Kafka. Most writers want to be read. For them there’s an element of truth in the homeless trope. Kafka, on the other hand, asked Max Brod to burn all his writings after his death, which would have consigned The Castle and The Trial to Borges’s “Library of Babel,” where “it is enough that a book be possible for it to exist.” As it happens, one of the foremost Kafka scholars on the planet resides in Princeton and has written a book about another longtime Princeton resident, the philosopher Walter Kaufmann (19211980 ). Readers who give a home to Stanley Corngold’s Walter Kaufmann: Philosopher, Humanist, Heretic (Princeton Univ Press $39.95) will be keeping company not only with Corngold and Kaufmann, but w ith an all-star cast that includes Nietzsche and Dostoevsky, Sartre and Camus, Goethe and Hegel, Socrates and Sophocles, Buddha and Christ, Kant and Kierkegaard. In view of the upcoming occasion, I’m approaching Corngold’s epic study as if it were a world-class antiquarian book fair where each chapter is a gallery devoted to one or more of Kaufmann’s books, each inhabited by Corngold’s witty, playful, rigorous but always comradely presence ; no rush, no crowd, no one’s looking over your shoulder, and you can count on Kafka ( “one of Kaufmann’s perpetual if second-order educators,” in Corngold’s words) whenever you’re in need of literar y sustenance. Sure enough, here he is on the second page of the first chapter, with its daunting title “Nietzsche Redivivus” (to which James Joyce’s Molly Bloom might say, “Who’s he when he’s at home? ”). Not to worry when Kafka’s standing in
the shadows saying, “No one sings so purely as those in deepest hell; what we consider the singing of angels is their singing.” Corngold goes on to point out that Kaufmann’s first book, Nietzsche: Philo s ophe r, Psy cholo g ist , Antichr ist ( Princeton Univ. Press 1950 ), has an impact on readers comparable to Kafka’s, which, as described by Theodor Adorno, “commands interpretation ... collapses aesthetic distance,” and “overwhelms you,” suggesting that “life and death are at stake.” At the same time, Corngold falls unknowingly into line with the book sale theme by putting a dealer’s spin on the “defiant cover” of Kaufmann’s Nietzsche, “the title printed in carmine letters — a burning orangered — anticipating Nietzsche’s sun worship and craving to blaze like a sun.... How much of this blaze flashes out of Walter Kaufmann’s magnum opus? ” Thomas Mann c a l le d it “a work of great superiority over everything previously achieved in Nietzsche criticism and interpretation.” Mindful of the looming local event, I should note that Corng o l d m a ke s s u r e w e ’r e a w a r e o f Kaufmann’s market value: “the cheapest hardback copy o f T h e Fa i t h of a Heretic (1959 ) found on A mazon at the time of writing ranges between $62 and $495, the cheapest paperback between $92 and $195.” It’s also necessary to remind today’s readers of how thoroughly copies of Kaufmann’s landmark work Existentialism from Dostoevesky to Sartre (Meridian 1956) pervaded the campus counterculture of the Vietnam era. As Corngold puts it, Kaufmann’s “anthology of existentialist writings” became “the Lonely Planet of the sixties in its refusal of ethical conformism.” The Faustian Philosopher After referring to Kaufmann’s untimely death at 59 (on “one of his Faustian journeys of exploration to West Africa,” where he “swallowed a parasite that attacked his hear t” and died months later “of a burst aorta in his Princeton home”), Corngold quotes from The Faith of a Heretic: “When I die, I do not want them to say: Think of all he still might have done. There is a cowardice in wanting to have that said. Let them say ... There was nothing left in him: he did not spare himself; he put everything he had into his work, his life.”
Trying to picture a Faustian philosopher who gave ever y thing he had to his work and his life, I come up with a nightmarish composite of Goethe and Ber trand Russell. However, once you put Corngold’s reference to the “permanent youthfulness — zest and pugnacity — in all of Kaufmann’s writing” together with the image of a globetrott ing poet /philosopher/photographer venturing off the beaten path in Africa and India, I begin to see someone who would have caught my attention in the late 1970s when I was practically living at Firestone Library. I’m picturing a bike-riding, boyishly handsome professor with a youthful ambiance, a casual dresser, shirt always open at the neck, hatless even in winter, someone who might easily be confused w ith Princeton’s equally boyish-looking president at t he t ime, William Bowen. Cor ngold ’s f irst impression, as a student at tending a Kaufmann lecture on existentialism, was of “someone who himself looked like an undergraduate.” This image is belied by a n e x t r a or d i n a r y p er s ona l h is tor y : born in Germany, Kaufmann rejects Christianit y at 11 and converts to Judaism, studies the Talmud in Berlin, emigrates from Na z i G er m a ny to t he U.S. i n 1939 at 19, g r a d u ate s w it h honors f rom Williams College, leaves Harvard after a year to join the Army Air Force, serves as an interrogator for the Military Intelligence service, discovers the works of Nietzsche and is captivated, returns to Harvard, where he earns his Ph.D. in 1947, arrives at Princeton that fall and three years later publishes a book that helped rehabilitate Nietzsche’s reputation by removing the stigma of Nazism that had blighted it. Happy Accidents In his second chapter ( “Raw Life” ), about Existentialism from Dostoevesky to Sartre, Corngold quotes a character in The Castle commenting on the difficulty of interpreting a letter where the thoughts prompted “are endless and the point at which one happens to stop is determined only by accident and so the opinion one arrives at is just as accidental.” I n t he world of s econd ha nd b o ok sales, the notion of “accident” is crucial to the quest. Amid a gathering as immense as the Bryn Mawr Wellesley event, treasures can turn up in unex-
pected places, misfiled or underpriced or among miscellaneous volumes that have been picked up, glanced at, and left behind by frantic, impatient patrons caught up in the opening mor ning’s storming of the tables. Unlikely as it may seem, the “good book” quote from Kafka with which I began is a happy accident I arrived at while riff ling mindlessly through the 100 pages of notes at the back of Corngold’s Kaufmann. Since the epigraph is conditional (“But if, for instance”), unresolved, one could say “Kafkaesque,” you should know that it’s from the “Letter to His Father” Kafka never sent and that it says or suggests as much about a philosopher who didn’t spare him self, who put ever y thing he had into his work, his life, as it says about Kafka, thus: “I feel too tightly constricted in everything that signifies Myself: even the eternity that I am is too tight for me. But if, for instance, I read a good book [ say, an account of travels ] , it rouses me, satisfies me, suffices me.... From a certain stage of knowledge on, weariness, insufficiency, constriction, self-contempt must all vanish: namely at the point where I have the strength to recognize as my own nature what previously was something alien to myself that refreshed me, satisfied, liberated, and exalted me.” During a visit to the set-up in progress at the PDS gym, I had a preview of the works under Philosophy, hoping to find some volumes by Kaufmann. What I found instead, along with Heidegger’s Being and Time and Walter Benjamin’s Reflections, was a copy of the 1940 edition of Kierkegaard’s Stages On Life’s Way, published by Princeton University Press, which plans to reprint many of Walter Kaufmann’s most important books, with new introductions. f I have a chance for a visit to the fully stocked sale, I hope to find a copy of Life at the Limits, the first book of the trilogy Man’s Lot (1978), which includes photographs Kaufmann took in India and which is the subject of one of Corngold’s harshest and most absorbing commentaries. In the end, after portraying Kaufmann as “ an ascetic priest in Dionysian sheep’s clothing,” Corngold says “one is simply challenged, as Kaufmann would have it, by a book that stares back at you asking: Are you, reader, equal to this work?” —Stuart Mitchner

THE HIDDEN ALLY
ne musical bright spot after every winter in Princeton is the spring concert of the Princeton University Orchestra, when the ensemble presents winners of its annual Concerto Competition for undergraduate students. As evidenced by the audience reaction in this past weekend’s concert at Richardson Auditorium, this year’s winners have not been squirreled away practicing to the expense of everything else, but are fully participating in the Princeton University experience, with armies of friends who came to support them in their solo performances. Four of this year’s winners performed with the University Orchestra Friday night (the concert was repeated Saturday night), demonstrating musical poise, technical dexterity, and the culmination of their enormous capacity for hard work. University Orchestra Conductor Michael Pratt warmed up the audience Friday night with the magical world of childhood as conjured by French composer Maurice Ravel in his five-movement Mother Goose Suite. Opening the first movement “Pavane of the Sleeping Beauty” in a languid tempo marked by graceful flute and horn solos, Pratt and the Orchestra set an enchanted scene. Wind solos were clean against violins that were so lean and agile, it was hard to believe there were more than 25 of them. The “Tom Thumb” movement was well complemented by solos from the winds, especially English horn player Ethan Petno. Pratt maintained a supple lilt to the third movement, contrasting with a broad instrumental palette as the Orchestra brought out Ravel’s trademark orchestral sunrise closing the Suite. Haeun Jung and Katie Liu are both juniors at the University, concentrating in molecular biology and operations research, respectively. In conjunction with their demanding academic careers, Jung has won numerous state awards for violin, and Liu has proven proficient on both violin and viola. The two talented instrumentalists joined the Orchestra for Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante for Violin and Viola in Eb Major. Together with the Orchestra, Jung and Liu were successful in bringing to life the contrasting instrumental colors Mozart, also proficient on both violin and viola, intended for both instruments. Both soloists were in synchrony with the Orchestra from the outset, playing with the ensemble when not performing on their own. The solo parts were often a conversation between violin and viola, and Jung and Liu demonstrated both independent performing styles and solid awareness of each other and the accompanying Orchestra around them. Jung was a more decisive and physical player on the violin, while Liu

found an elegant and graceful tone from the viola. Mozart’s music traveled seamlessly between the two solo instruments, often capturing the same rich conversational style heard between characters in the composer’s operas. The closing cadenza to the second movement andante was dramatic and a bit mournful, foreshadowing Mozart’s Requiem to come. For his solo clarinet performance, University junior Hanson Kang chose a work of a 20th-century French composer, who despite his prolific output, seems to be little known. Clearly not one to shy away from a challenge, Kang was featured with the Orchestra in Jean Françaix’s 1967 Concerto for Clarinet and Orchestra, a work considered almost unplayable when composed because of its technical difficulty. The four-movement work composed in a difficult key for the clarinet, and Françaix himself described the piece as full of “loops, wing-turns, and nose-dives which are terrifying for the soloist.” Seemingly ignoring his vocally loud cheering section until the Concerto was over, Kang demonstrated solid breath control and lightning-quick runs, while maintaining the humor and fun intended by the composer. This Concerto, especially in the cadenzas, seemed truly improvisatory, with Kang appearing to make it up as he went along, although every note was intended. Kang emphasized a great deal of phrasing in a quirky second movement waltz, and played an expressive solo line against an ethereal orchestral texture in the third movement. A rollicking and jaunty closing movement served as a backdrop to the clarinet fireworks and nonstop playing required of the soloist, with Kang well up to the task. he fourth soloist presented, University senior Lou Chen, was not an instrumentalist — his solo with the Orchestra was conducting the ensemble in Johannes Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture. Chen has been conducting instrumental ensembles both on and off campus through much of his time at Princeton, and he was clearly comfortable on the podium. Most impressive about the Orchestra’s playing of the Brahms Overture under Chen’s leadership were the dynamic contrasts and swells Chen asked of the players — the music was always going somewhere. Chen was a precise conductor, bringing out both the regal nature of the piece and the humorous passages rooted in old-time drinking songs with effective changes in gestures to which the Orchestra responded. A winner of musical awards and clearly an innovative conductor, Chen proved himself well in the University Orchestra’s concerts and undoubtedly has a bright future in the field if he chooses that direction. —Nancy Plum

Ballet School Names Studio for Spine Center
Princeton Ballet School, the official school of American Repertory Ballet, has announced the naming of the Princeton Spine and Joint Center Studio at its Princeton headquarters, located at Princeton Shopping Center. “We are grateful to Dr. Ana Bracilovic and her husband, Dr. Grant Cooper, codirectors of the Princeton Spine and Joint Center, for their generosity, passion, and belief in our mission,” said Julie Diana Hench, executive director of American Repertory Ballet. “This partnership furthers our commitment to ensuring that our dancers receive a holistic dance education, including a broader understanding of health, wellness, and injury prevention.” Princeton Spine and Joint Center has been caring for Pr inceton Ballet S chool
ficial health care provider for the School. In addition, Dr. Bracilovic will participate in upcoming “On Pointe” events that are free and open to the public: “Dancing Your Way into College,” a panel discussion on March 15, and “Physical Therapy: Taking Care of the Young Dancer’s Body” on May 3. Dr. Bracilovic will also be presenting lectures once a month for advanced dance students on a variety of topics ranging from anatomy and biomechanics, strengthening and conditioning, to injury prevention. In addition, she will be creating a series of warm-up exercises for students to do prior to classes and rehearsals, in collaboration with School Director Aydmara Cabrera. Dr. Bracilovic began her dance training at an early age at Pr inceton B allet School and continued dancing through college and medical school. Today, Drs. Bracilovic and Cooper’s two daughters are students at the school. In medical school, Dr. Bracilovic took dance classes at Steps on Broadway, where she spotted a brochure with the term unfamiliar to her at the time, “dance medicine.” The brochure featured a man in a white lab coat examining the knee of a dancer in a leotard. The man was Donald Rose, M.D., orthopedic surgeon and director of Harkness Center for Dance Injuries in New York City. Dr. Bracilovic would spend t wo su m mers w it h Rose and his staff learning all about the injuries of professional dancers. After medical school and residency t r a i n i n g, D r. B r ac i l ov i c and her husband opened their practice, Princeton Spine and Joint Center, a few blocks from Princeton Ballet School. Much in the same way sports medicine evolved as a branch of medicine specializing in the injuries of athletes, dance medicine is a further evolution of athletic injuries focusing on the specific care, diagnosis, and
seasoned professionals. In 2008, Dr. Bracilovic wrote a book, Essential Dance Medicine, dedicated to increasing the awareness and knowledge of the subject as well as emphasizing the importance of developing further funding for this field. “I am thrilled to be back in our hometown and to have the chance to work with many of my former teachers as well as the next generation of Princeton Ballet School students,” said Dr. Bracilov ic. “There is no better feeling than watching dancers perform whom I’ve seen in the office as patients. Seeing them shine in the beauty of their expression, musicality, and incredible prowess of their technique is testament to the amazing capacity of the human body and spirit, as both a science and an art. It is to this end that I relish supporting Princeton Ballet School, its students, teachers, and families, and the arts in our community in general.”
The Migration Plays At McCarter Theatre
Continuing McCarter Theatre’s tradition of producing socially relevant work that engages with the central questions of our culture, McCar ter has par t nered with Princeton University’s Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies (PIIRS) on The Migration Plays, a new initiative focusing on the nature of migration, how it is represented culturally, and the ways in which it shapes the world around us. TOPICS McCar ter has commis s ion e d f ive play w r ig ht s
— Adam Gwon, Mar tyna M a j o k , H e a t h e r R a f f o, Mfoniso Udofia, and Karen Zacarías — to write a series of short plays inspired by the research and programming of the PIIRS Migration Lab and its Mellon funded Saw yer Seminar, “Global Migration: The Humanities and Social Sciences in Dialogue.” Since the spring of 2018, these five playwrights have engaged with the Migrations Lab by attending sem inars and sy mposia, meeting with scholars, and explor ing t he P r inceton campus to create pieces with unique and personal perspectives on migration. The Migration Plays will be directed by Elena Araoz, a theatre /opera director currently engaged as a lecturer in theater at Princeton University. A public reading of these five short plays will take place on Sunday, April 14 at 2 p.m. at McCar ter’s Matthews Stage, followed by a panel discussion. This event will be free and open to the public, with reservations required. Ab o u t T h e Mi g r a t i o n Plays, McCarter Artistic Director Emily Mann said “McCarter is immensely proud of its work with PIIRS and The Migration Lab. A play is an immediate encounter with the lives of others, something that is difficult to glean from a photo or a news article. The triumphs, the decisions, the difficulties faced in everyday life are things with which we can all relate, and when those aspects are placed directly in front of you by another human being on
stage, that immediacy can spark a whole world of new discussions, compassion, and empathy.” Immigration is a subject with which all five commissioned playwrights are intimately familiar, including Heather Raffo, who says “migration is a very personal subject to me. The idea of somebody starting in one home and ending up in another part of the world is something I’m very familiar with because I had over one hundred relatives living in Iraq at the start of the war in 2003 — I now have just two cousins left in the country. My family have fled as refugees and immigrants to places like New Zealand, Germany, Florida ... so what it means to be a refugee and the many different roads that takes is something I am continually exploring.” Professor of Comparative Literature, Cotsen Professor in the Humanities, and faculty head of the PIIRS Migration Lab Sandra Bermann added: “Migration is an immense issue for our generation, and the generation we are teaching. Migration is in many ways the human face of globalization, and our work attempts to bring our many campus disciplines together with the broader Princeton community to consider it more closely. When searching for collaborative partners, it was an easy decision to reach out to Emily Mann and the McCarter to partner on commissioning these plays. We look forward now to experiencing these works first hand.” Visit mccarter.org to register.

DRBC Winter Photo Contest Winner
The Delaware River Basin Commission ( DR BC ) announced that Bridget Davis’ photograph, titled Polar Vortex Beauty, was chosen as the winner of the commission’s Winter 2018-2019 Photo Contest. Forty photographs were submitted by 14 individuals for the contest. “I always have my camera with me and enjoy photographing the amazing wildlife and beautiful scenery of this area along the West Branch Delaware River,” said Bridget Davis of Deposit, N.Y. “The recent polar vortex made for some fantastic photographs; I felt sorry for the geese, but they didn’t appear to mind the cold.” The winning image will be featured on the commission’s website at www.nj.gov/drbc/ basin/photo/photo-contest and on its social media sites. The photo will also be published in the commission’s 2019 annual report, and the winner will receive a certificate of recognition.
The contest’s purpose is to highlight amateur and professional photography representing the beauty, diversity, function, and significance of the water resources of the Delaware River Basin, a 13,539-square mile watershed. Approximately 15 million people (or about five percent of the nation’s population) rely on the water resources of the Delaware River Basin to support a variety of significant uses including public drinking water, industry, agriculture, power generation, recreation, fisheries, and aquatic life. The Spring Photo Contest will begin on March 20, and has a deadline of May 15. Complete contest details, including instructions on how to submit photographs, are available on DRBC’s website at the above link. The DRBC is a federal/interstate government agency responsible for managing the water resources within the Delaware River Basin without regard to political boundaries.

The Arts Council of Princeton presents “Riverside Silos/ Shaping Spaces,” a dual exhibition by photographer Ricardo Barros and sculptor Autin Wright. This installation addresses volume — the space a substance occupies — in various ways through light, shadow, and form. “You could say we’re focusing on the same subject, but seeing it through different lenses,” says Princeton resident Barros. “Or,” Wright adds, “We’re both pursuing a sculptural vision. Mine results in a threedimensional sculpture. Ricardo works with similar forms to produce a two-dimensional photograph.” “Riverside Silos/Shaping Spaces” will be on view in the Arts Council’s Taplin Gallery March 23 through May 4. “We look forward to working again with Ricardo, our friend of many years,” says ACP Artistic Director Maria Evans. “And we’re excited about welcoming Autin to our gallery for the first time.” An artist talk will be held on Saturday, March 23 from 2-3 p.m., followed by an opening reception from 3-5 p.m. Also on view in the Lower Level Gallery will be Charles David Viera’s “WILD: Wildlife Paintings and Drawings.” The Taplin Gallery is at the Paul Robeson Center for the Arts, 102 Witherspoon Street. Parking is available in the Spring and Hulfish Street Garages and at metered parking spots along Witherspoon Street and Paul Robeson Place.

laborated to create multifaceted learning experiences for junior kindergarten, first-, and third-grade pupils. Each class approached the project through social studies, STEAM, and technology. Jill Work was technology teacher for “Animal Expo,” and Elene Nickerson was the STE A M teacher. The project also emphasized language and information skills, in addition to the creative multimedia art. Lively interpretations of animals fill the Olivia Rainbow Gallery, including creatures native to New Jersey in general and Central Jersey in particular. The young artists also crafted essays on habitat, food, interactions of their species with Lenapes of long ago, and with 21st-century humans. All addressed habitat requirements and environmental effects upon their chosen species. Each Stuart first-grader chose a specific farm animal to study and depict. Third-graders — with Aileen O’Shea and Denise King, teachers — depicted their animals in vivid oil pastels. Their species studies were tied to Lenape traditions. Stuart’s junior kindergarten students utilized field guides to local birds, with emphasis

The Delaware Valley Bead Society (DVBS) will present Mark Fleishman’s “Bead Forum and Trunk Show” on Wednesday, March 20, at 7 p.m. in the Café of the Hunterdon County Senior Center, 4 G aunt t Place, Building 1, Flemington. The program is free and open to the public, but non-members must pre-register. Fleishman will cover topics such as what to look for in terms of natural quality, how best to choose between natural beads and enhanced ones, and how to use color and the structure of the material to judge quality. In addition to a discussion of the scientific background of certain stones, Fleishman will touch on the history of natural and enhanced specimens and how colors came to be. At tendees will learn of other natural materials that are suitable for jewelry, such as common fossils and pearls. He will also discuss availability and hardness (durability) of gemstones, as well as how to determine which beads are natural, which are “enhanced” or synthetic, and which are incompatible with natural history. A question and answer period will follow. After the presentation, there will be a trunk show where beads of all types will be available for analysis, purchase, or trade. To register, email your name, address, and phone number to odyssey5@ptd. net or call (908) 246-1231. For more information, visit www.delawarevalleybeadsociety.org.

IT’S NEW To Us
W ho could believe 20 years ago that the general public would regularly snap pictures with their phones? W ho heard of a smar tphone? The sheer speed of the changes is both amazing and unsettling. Face-to-Face Nevertheless, even in the age of instant turnaround and non-stop action, some things remain. Knowledgeable, reliable service, high quality products, and helpful face-to-face interaction are still welcome in our world, and in business transactions. New Jersey Camera & O ne Hou r Photo of fer s such an experience for its customers. Located in the Lawrence Shopping Center at 2495 Brunswick Pike for the past year, it has served the area in various other locations for many years. Owners Doug Masin, Leon Treskunov, and Bennie Williams and manager Er ic Kramer offer expertise in all areas of photography, printing, equipment, and the latest technological advances. “We can do so much for
our customers,” points out Doug Masin, who has been in the camera and photo lab business for 30 years. “We buy, sell, trade, and repair cameras, offering all the brands such as Sony, Nikon, Leica, Canon, and others. “We can print in many areas, including from phones and from slides, and we can also restore old photos that are faded or damaged. We can scan old slides onto a disk or fast drive, and do also do VHS transfers to DVDs and to flash drives— and we do everything inhouse. Nothing is sent out.” In something of a turnaround, he adds, in this day of instant everything, there has recently been new interest in film. “This has really surprised me,” says Masin. “In 1999/2000, I had the best years in film. After that, it plummeted, and everything was digital. Now, there has been a resurgence of interest in film, especially among younger people. “They like to use disposable cameras with film. For a lot of people, it’s fun waiting to see what the picture will look like. It’s the anticipation. The way it used to be, waiting for the film to be developed — unlike today, with the instant digital format.” Special Meaning Masin particularly enjoys the restoration of old photos and the printing process. He becomes involved with customers to whom a particular image has special meaning. “It’s ver y personal when
people share their lives with us through their photos. Lots of times, they’ll bring in photos of pets who have died or other special images that are important to them.” Helping clients with photographic advice in all areas is the specialty of manager Eric Kramer, a professional photographer himself. He finds his position at New Jersey Camera to be a perfect match with his work as a photographer. “I was originally a customer at the store, and then ended up working here,” he explains. “I wanted to learn more about the camera sales end and the printing. It’s been great.” With his focus and experience in portraits, wedding photos, and social media, he is in an ideal position to advise customers, who range from professional photographers to beginners. “I can help people with advice about settings, composition of pictures, different cameras, etc. As a visual artist, I try to help you to make your images look even better.” Full Range He adds that customers are interested in the full range of cameras, and he can assist them in finding the model most appropriate for their needs. “If someone is new to photography, they may want to rent one to try it out. Our customers are across the board, including kids just learning and also retirees who may be taking up photography as a new

Of course, we get lots of people who want to take pictures when they go on vacation. “Our clients are f rom Princeton and the area, both longtime regulars and new customers, and they’re interested in the full range of what we offer, from renting or buying a camera to film processing to restoration. Whatever their goal, I enjoy being able to supply someone with the tools they need to capture an image. Also, in February, we are scheduling a series of classes and seminars for all areas of photography.” Many customers visit the store regularly, and New Jersey Camera also enjoys a thriving online business,
essential to today’s world of buying and selling. In addition, notes Masin, “It is necessar y to keep up-to-date with all the new technology and advances. Eric is very knowledgeable about all this.” Along with cameras, customers will find a full range of accessories at the store. Camera bags, flashes, camera batteries, filters, tripods, of course, film, and also picture frames are all available, as are passport photos. The owners look forward to a long stay in the Lawrence Shopping Center, which is currently undergoing a renovation, with many more stores on the horizon. “We really enjoy helping our customers,” says Doug
Masin. “We try to offer a very comfortable, warm atmosphere, and we like interacting with the customers. We look forward to continuing to offer high quality service, printing, and products. And we do our best to provide what they need within their budget. We are here to stay!” And, while fully immersed in the high-tech world of today, New Jersey Camera & One Hour Photo offers the singular service that has stood the test of time.

Five Feet Apart
Romance Drama Revolves Around Love Between Hospitalized Teens Stella Grant (Haley Lu Richardson) is a typical 17-yearold in most regards. However, she is also suffering from cystic fibrosis (CF), a genetic disease which makes her very susceptible to a variety of breathing disorders. Consequently, she spends much of her time in the hospital. She’s currently receiving treatment for bronchitis on a ward with several fellow CF patients, including her friend Poe (Moises Arias), although there is a strictlyenforced rule that they stay at least six feet apart at all times because they could easily infect each other. That regulation is put to the test upon the arrival of newcomer Will Newman (Cole Sprouse), a CF victim with a bacterium which would prove fatal should Stella catch it from him. But the two kids fall in love at first sight, and find it hard to resist each other. Luckily, nurse Barb (Kimberly Hebert Gregory) is there to monitor the movements of the young patients. She has been particularly vigilant to prevent any rendezvous on her
watch, ever since an incident that led to a tragic ending. Thus unfolds Five Feet Apart, a bittersweet romance drama marking the noteworthy feature film directorial debut of actor Justin Baldoni (Jane the Virgin). Baldoni deserves considerable credit for coaxing impressive performances out of Richardson and Sprouse, who manage to generate convincing chemistry in challenging roles where they can’t touch each other. The movie’s sole flaw rests in its unnecessarily adding a melodramatic twist more appropriate for a soap opera at the picture’s climactic moment. It is a distracting rabbitout-the-hat development that almost ruins an otherwise poignant love story. Very Good (H H H). Rated PG-13 for profanity, mature themes, and suggestive material.

Concord Pet started in 1978 out of a trailer. Originally, the Mutschler family was looking for a way to feed the family horses. In 1981 Larry Mutschler opened his first retail location on
Concord Pike in Wilmington, Delaware, with only one employee in a 1,000-squarefoot building. This building still exists today as storage for the Concord Pike location. Originally Larry had two partners — his brother and a good friend. The company grew to nine locations by 1998. Today Larry solely owns the company that has grown to 29 locations from Princeton to Salisbury, Md. For
over 36 years the company has been locally owned and operated, and we at Concord Pet know what that means to our customers. At Concord Pet we help our customers as if they are family. We strive to be the best in the area, from carrying bags to hiring a knowledgeable staff. Please feel free to stop in at Concord Pet, where you and your pet will be part of our family!

The Terra Momo Restaurant Group
Tindall & Ranson
The Terra Momo Restaurant Group was formed by Raoul and Carlo Momo, who were originally inspired by their parents, Raul and Teresa Momo, who opened an Italian specialty food store in the mid 1970s. In 1982, the Group opened their first restaurant, Teresa II, in New Brunswick, eventually expanding their operations to include five dining concepts across multiple cultures, including Eno Terra, Mediterra, and Teresa Caffe in the Princeton area. While the flavors and themes vary, they all share the Terra Momo vision of quality, creativity, and exceptional service. Each setting has an individual sense of place. You can experience this in the colors of our custom-designed interiors, the smell of our artisan bread, the taste of locally-grown produce, and the selection of carefully chosen wines. The sounds of our music, and the care our staff provides, create a vibrant setting for great memories with family and friends. Eno Terra is founded on the principle of the regionalism and the seasonality of what our local farmers grow, what our three-season harvest from our Eno Terra Canal Farm produces, what our fishermen catch, and the grass-fed beef and antibiotic-free poultry our producers offer.

PU Women’s Hockey Falls in ECACH Semis But Gets NCAA Bid, Will Play at Minnesota
ast weekend turned out to be nerve-wracking for the Princeton University women’s hockey team. On Saturday, Princeton headed north to play at Cornell in the ECAC Hockey semis, knowing that a loss could doom its chances of getting invited to the NCAA tournament. The Tigers jumped out to a 2-0 lead early in the second period on goals by Claire Thompson and Carly Bullock but couldn’t hold off the Big Red, losing 3-2 in double overtime. “I thought it was a really tight, even game obviously, it was back and forth,” said Princeton head coach Cara Morey. “We probably had five opportunities to end the game and they probably had three or four good scoring chances to end it earlier. It was just waiting; somebody was going to put it in and it happened to be them.” As a result of the defeat, which left the Tigers at 207-5 overall, the squad’s players and coaches were on pins and needles as they waited for the NCAA Selection Show at 9 p.m. on Sunday evening. “I was confident at the beginning, I was thinking that we were going to get in because of our body of work,” said Morey, whose team won
the Ivy League title, finished second in the ECACH standings, reached a national ranking of fourth, the highest ever for the Tigers, and set a program record with a 20-game unbeaten streak. “It shows that we had a great season. It was a double overtime loss. We had the 20-game unbeaten streak. As we got closer to the selection show, it started to really worry me. They don’t just go by the numbers. They look at the numbers as a guideline but when it is that close in percentage points, it could have gone any number of ways.” Things went the Tigers’ way as they learned that they will play at second-seeded Minnesota (30-5-1) in an NCAA quarterfinal contest on March 16. “We were watching the show together at Cannon, just the players and staff,” said Morey. “When they announced it, there were tears in people’s eyes. They were so excited and happy that our season isn’t over yet.” The selection marks the program’s third NCAA appearance overall and first trip to the national tourney since the Tigers fell 6-2 at Minnesota in the 2016 quarterfinals at Ridder Arena in Minneapolis. Morey acknowledged that
Princeton will be in for some nervous moments as they face the Gophers, one of the traditional powerhouses in college women’s hockey. “The biggest challenge is just their history of being great, it is hard to beat teams that have been in this position a lot more often than our team has,” said Morey of Minnesota, which is making its 17th straight appearance in the NCAA tournament and has won four national championships in the last seven years. “We are a pretty young team and we are new to this success.” With the four Tiger seniors having played in the 2016 NCAA contest at Minnesota, Morey believes that experience will be a plus. “Our seniors have been through it; I think that is helpful but they are the only class that has ever been in this position,” said Morey. “It will help because they are our leaders. The familiarity with it is kind of ironic in that it is the exact same trip for them.” Princeton senior forward and co-captain Karlie Lund, a native of Eden Prairie, Minn., is excited about the return trip to her home state. “This time around I think our team is more confident in ourselves and our ability to play at the top level,”
said Lund as quoted on the Princeton sports website. “We also have a very closeknit team where everyone supports one another. Minnesota is a great team, so it should be a good game. Having the chance to play in Minnesota one last time is incredible. I played all my youth and high-school hockey in Minnesota, so to have one of my last games there will be bittersweet. There are a few Minnesotans on the team, so hopefully we can have a good amount of Tiger fans at the game.” Morey is confident that her team will be up to the challenge after navigating the emotional roller-coaster last weekend. “I think we just have to stay calm, not get wrapped up in the hype, not get lost in the crowd noise and the hysteria around the event,” said Morey. “We just have to play our game and just really believe that we can. It is going to be important to take away time and space from a lot of their superstar players. They have a phenomenal roster, they are strong, they are creative, and they are offensive minded.” With the Tigers boasting such stars as freshman forwards Sarah Fillier (20 goals, 35 assists) and Maggie Connors (26 goals, 16 assists) along with junior standouts, forward Bullock (21 goals, 21 assists), defenseman Thompson (9 goals, 19 as-

GOING FOR IT: Princeton University women’s hockey player Karlie Lund goes after a puck in recent action. Last Saturday, senior forward and co-captain Lund contributed an assist as Princeton fell 3-2 in double overtime to Cornell in the ECAC Hockey semifinals. The disappointment over that loss turned to joy a day later as the Tigers were awarded an at-large bid to the upcoming NCAA tournament. Princeton, now 20-7-5 overall, will play at second-seeded Minnesota (30-5-1) in a national quarterfinal contest on March 16.

“We have a lot of depth, we have a lot of offensive power, we have great defenders, and we have three amazing goaltenders. We definitely have all of the pieces, we just have to do our thing.” —Bill Alden

After Emotional Jadwin Finale for PU Men’s Hoops, Senior Star Stephens Primed for Ivy Tourney Run As Myles Stephens left the floor at Jadwin Gym last Saturday for the last time in his career with the Princeton University men’s basketball team, he hugged his coaches and teammates one by one as he went to the end of the bench. Moments after Princeton’s 81-59 loss to Yale in the home finale, he embraced some of his former teammates gathered courtside as he made his away to the locker room. Stephens acknowledged that he had a lot on his mind as the evening unfolded. “Four years is a long time and as a student athlete, you spend so much time coming down here every day, lifting, conditioning and practicing,” said Stephens. “I was definitely a little emotional.” As a native of nearby Lawrenceville, Stephens has received some extra fan backing over his career with the Tigers. “It means a lot, it is nice,” said the 6’5, 210-pound Stephens with a smile. “I have been able to have a lot of family and friends come to my games throughout the years and that has been special to me. Being a local guy, I have had my friends from middle school come to my games and guys I haven’t seen since high school coming to a game. That is always a cool thing. To have them support me is definitely special.” This winter, senior captain Stephens had to provide extra support to his teammates as fellow senior star Devon Cannady recently left the program due to personal issues.
“It was a tough time; we went through that as seniors and we had to deal with a lot,” said Stephens. “I think we dealt with things the right way. We kept our tram together and told them this is then, we have a season to finish. We have goals that are still unaccomplished and we still have those goals to accomplish. We are not done as seniors. We are going to attack this week with the same mentality that we have been attacking the season.” P r inceton head coach Mitch Henderson credited Stephens and his classmates with steadying the ship for the Tigers. “This group has had to do more than any other group I have ever had here with in terms of dealing with off the court stuff,” said Henderson, whose senior class also included Noah Bramlage and Elias Berbari. “It is a lot to put on anybody, not being here with one of their teammates that they started off the season with. It is a testament to leadership of the team and keeping things together when they were all over the place for us to be qualified for the tournament. I know we are disappointed in a way, but I see this as a sign of seniors keeping us on path and keeping us focused in the right direction. That is something I am proud of them for that.” Henderson is proud of what Stephens has given Princeton on the court over the last four years.
FINAL MILE: Princeton University men’s basketball player Myles Stephens dribbles up the floor in recent action. Senior star and captain Stephens played well in his final weekend at Jadwin Gym but it wasn’t enough as Princeton fell 67-63 to Brown on Friday and 81-59 to Yale a day later. Stephens had 11 points and seven rebounds in the loss to the Bears and then chipped in 13 points and nine rebounds against the Bulldogs. Princeton, now 16-11 overall and 8-6 Ivy League, is next in action when it competes in the Ivy postseason tournament. The third-seeded Tigers will face second-seeded and host Yale in the semis on March 16 in New Haven, Conn. with the victor advancing to the title game the next day. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski)
“One of the most impressive things I told him was at Cornell, guarding Matt Morgan and winning in OT,” said Henderson of Stephens, who has scored 1,332 points and grabbed 557 rebounds in his Princeton career and was named the 2016-17 Ivy Defensive Player of the Year. “It was taking a task and making it personal. We have relied heavily on his defensive progress, his ability to get easy baskets for us, and then rebounding nightly. He had 13 [points] and 9 [rebounds] tonight, that seemed like a normal evening for him. We are going to miss all of that a lot.” Princeton, now 16-11 overall and 8-6 Ivy League, will be looking to send Stephens and the seniors out on a high note as it competes in the Ivy postseason tournament this weekend. “This is what we have been waiting for; there is a big picture of Myles with an NCAA tournament sticker on,” said Henderson, whose team is seeded third and will face second-seeded and host Yale in the semis on March 16 in New Haven, Conn. with the victor advancing to the title game the next day against the winner of the other semifinal piting top-seeded Harvard versus fourth-seeded Penn. “Let’s put these guys back in the tournament again; all you have got to do is play 80 minutes well.” Noting that Tigers had to fight to pull out the crown in the 2016-17 season when it entered the inaugural league tourney with an undefeated Ivy mark, Henderson likes being in the underdog role this year. “We were in a position two years ago where we were in the first tournament and we were going down on the road,” said Henderson, whose team went on to fall 60-58 to Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA tournament that season. “All eyes were on us so the shoe is on other foot. We are in it. We are really happy about being in it and we have got a big week ahead.” Henderson believes that his squad can rise to the occasion. “You play Saturday; you have one more day to prepare and we got an opportunity to get a little healthy,” said Henderson, noting that he is hopeful that sophomore star Ryan Schwieger will be back in action after being sidelined last weekend due to a concussion. “We have to play better and we will; we are going to work really hard at it this week.” Stephens, for his part, wants to keep his Princeton career going for as long as possible. “We have to play well, we have to make our shots, and we have to play better defensively,” said Stephens. “I don’t think we have played well this past weekend. We just have to play harder and I know we can do it. Sometimes you need a couple of bounces to go your way. I think we can get over that hump.” —Bill Alden

With Sophomore Star Sears Erupting for 6 Goals, PU Women’s Lax Rallies to Top Stony Book 15-14 After piling up 64 goals in 19 games last spring during her freshman year for the Princeton University women’s lacrosse team, Kyla Sears wasn’t as prolific in the early going this season. Entering Princeton’s game against visiting Stony Brook last Saturday, star attacker Sears had seven goals in the first four games in the 2019 campaign. But finding her finishing touch, Sears erupted for five goals in the first half as the Tigers took a 9-8 lead over the Seawolves. “Our offense really clicked; we were finding each other, we were giving each other good looks,” said Sears a 5’4 native of Skaneateles, N.Y. “Any player is as successful as their teammates around them; we found each other’s strengths today. Sears has developed a strong bond with senior Elizabeth George who assisted on two of her first half goals. “It is a great connection, some days she will have five, six goals and then some days she can have five or six assists,” said Sears. “She is so versatile; she is somebody anyone wants on their offensive line.” T he Pr inceton offense sputtered early in the second half as Stony Brook went on a 6-1 run to take a 14-10 lead with 14:30 left in regulation. “They changed up a little bit; they crowded the middle a little more which is where they were getting all of our offensive looks so that was a really smart change by them,” said Sears. “We just had to find some different offensive sets to put them on their toes a little bit.” Sears was on her toes down the stretch, making two assists and scoring a goal as the Tigers tallied five unanswered goals in the last 10:01 of the contest to pull out a dramatic 15-14 win. “I had the successful first half scoring wise and then you have to step back and if the attention comes behind a little bit then we are going to have more openings up top,” said Sears, who ended up with six goals and two assists, matching her career single-game best in goals and setting a new personal mark for points in a game. “I think that was the plan, working off each other and to pull attention from one person and give it to another.” With eighth-ranked Princeton, now 4-1, having won three in a row since a 14-9 loss to Virginia on February 23, Sears believes that hard work has resulted in the team’s recent surge. “UVa is a great opponent and I think that was a wakeup call,” said Sears. “That is who we are going to see if we want to have a good season. From that game, we made a mindset to make our practices harder than any game that we would have. I think that is what let us have such a successful day today.” Building on her freshman season, Sears is looking to assume more responsibility in the Princeton attack. “We have younger players behind me who are just as talented and it is trying to find that mesh in the of-
fense which is a fun role,” said Sears. “I have leaders above me. I think our offense is so versatile age-wise which is is going to give us success for years to come.” P r i nceton he ad coach Chris Sailer credited Sears with playing a leading role in triggering the victory over Stony Brook. “Kyla is just getting better and better and she is starting to find a groove,” said Sailer of Sears, who was later named the Ivy League Player of the Week. “She is so smart off of the cut. Whether we put her behind the cage or we play her a little more inside, she is able to find some good looks and make a lot of combination plays. We had nine assists on 15 goals, which is what we needed to have against a team like this with their tough zone defense.” Senior standout George made a lot of big plays against the Seawolves, tallying three goals and four assists. “George is amazing, we asked her two days ago to change up,” said Sailer of George, who recently passed the 100-point mark in her Princeton career. “She usually plays up front and we put her behind on the left side. We just thought we wanted to have Tess and Kyla inside against their zone. We thought that was what we needed and Georgie was the person. She ended up having just a monster day; she responded so well to everything we asked of her and
then the nine draw controls. That was just a major difference in the game.” Sailer liked the way her team responded over the last 10 minutes of the contest in overcoming the Stony Brook lead. “You never want to be down 14-10 late in the second half but we really believe in our players,” said Sailer, who got three goals and an assist from junior star Tess D’Orsi, including the gamewinning tally with 2:06 remaining in regulation. “They fought incredibly hard out there, winning draws, Sam [Fish] making some big saves, and kids making plays all over the place. It was awesome to see. We do have a lot of fight and you could really see that today.” In Sailer’s v iew, some of that fighting spirit was prompted by the loss at Virginia. “We just played so poorly in that game and we knew were capable of so much better,” said Sailer, whose team is next in action when it plays at Florida on Match 19. “I think that is probably the best thing that could have happened to us this season.” Sears, for her part, believes that the win over Stony Brook showed that Princeton is capable of doing some special things this spring. “I think it is pure fight and we are a gritty team,” said Sears. “We have been in this position before and we are able to pull out of it and I think that sets momentum for the season. That is a great characteristic to have as opposed to just letting ourselves fold up.” —Bill Alden

Battling Through Nagging Knee Problem, Wildberg Makes Historic Leap for PHS Track For Nils Wildberg, winning the inaugural boys’ long jump at the NJSIAA Meet of Champions indoor track and field meet wasn’t the surprise. He’d been dreaming of a state title for two years. It’s how the Princeton High senior came through despite his training being thrown off completely by a knee injury. “You have to be in that right mindset for success,” said Wildberg. “I jumped surprisingly well for training that little. That day I guess I was just mentally strong.” W i l d b e r g j u m p e d 2 3’ 4 to win the MOC title in late February, just a halfinch shy of his new indoor personal record set while winning the Eastern States Championships long jump five days earlier. “We’re thrilled to have Nils as inaugural state champion,” said PHS head coach Ben Samara. “All the history we have, he’s one of only three guys to do it, which is incredible given the other athletes we’ve had walk through the doors.”
Wildberg is the first long jump champion in indoor MOC history and joins previous male state champions Peter Sharpless and Stephen Fletcher in the PHS record books. “It was fantastic,” said Wildberg. “I felt unusually good that day. All my jumps were over 23. I was just elated when I found out I was in the lead and about to win. It was a fantastic experience. It’s just a great honor to be the first long jump indoor champion. I wouldn’t have been able to do it without m y co ach a n d a m a z i ng teammates to support me.” Wildberg’s belief that he could be a state champion started in his sophomore year af ter a si xt h -place finish at the 2017 outdoor MOC, and moved into striking position with a secondplace finish last spring at the 2018 outdoor MOC. “When I medaled my sophomore year, that’s when it really hit me,” said Wildberg. “If I really put in the work, focus, and be smart about everything, I can really do
something. As a sophomore, everyone was older than me; I didn’t expect to be at that high level in the first place. When I medaled, I thought I had potential and I wanted to expand on my ability. Then when I got second last year. There’s so much good compet it ion w it h A’Nan Bridgett (of WW/P-South) and my own teammate, Varun (Narayan), and placing second in such a competitive environment was something that showed I could take it to the next level from here.” As Wildberg entered his final winter season for PHS, he was brimming with confidence. At the Marine Corps Holiday Classic at the end of December, he opened the season with a 23-4½ leap before a fluke injury put everything in doubt. “I had just competed in my season opener and had a great result,” recalled Wildberg. “I was just cooling off afterwards and I stood up and I felt a pop in my knee. Embarrassingly enough that’s how I got injured.” What followed was frustration as Wildberg, his coaches, and doctor tried to assess how he soon he could compete again without risking his knee. “There’s always a thought in the back of my mind saying I might not be able to compete at all the rest of the season,” said Wildberg. “I remained optimistic throughout the whole experience. I did not give up, and I wanted to do all I could to make sure I’d be back. Having the right
mindset gave me the confidence to give it a go.” Wildberg’s doctor cleared him to compete as tolerable. His state hopes got a boost at the Mercer County Championships in late January with a third-place finish at 21’ 2¾ that quelled some fears. “Counties was the first time I got back on the track, the first time in a long time,” said Wildberg. “I took two short approach jumps and nothing was really hurting. I saw William (Murray) from Lawrenceville, he jumped into first place, and I went to my coaches and I said, ‘let me take one full approach jump because nothing is hurting.’ I took one and it was a foul but it felt good. I gained confidence from there. I knew I could take a jump without hurting myself. From there, I tried to do as much as I could to get back into it without being too risky.” Wildberg didn’t compete again until February 19 at Easterns. It was a tune-up and a test for the MOC that was that same week. Up until Easterns, he’d had next to no real training. “That’s the amazing part,” said Samara. “He had one practice where shook his legs out. Then with muscle memory he came out and jumped 23’4. We only had him do two jumps. After this long layoff, I told him he was going to be sore. He had one big jump and was able to take it home.” Going into the Eastern meet, Wildberg planned to just jump twice as he just wanted to see how his knee felt. “I wouldn’t say I was super confident,” said Wildberg. “I didn’t know how far I could really go with my knee. As soon as I took my first jump, I was thinking to myself, I could really do something. From there, I told myself that if you play your cards right, you could be the next state champion.” He fouled on his first jump, but it had good distance. Wildberg’s second jump of 23-4½ won the meet, and he was begging to jump a third time, but saved it for the MOC and the chance to be the first champion in the newly added event indoors. “I was super excited when I heard about it,” said Wildberg. “I had worked extra hard the fall and the beginning of winter and knew I’d have a chance to take the title indoors. I guess you could say I was bouncing off the walls.” Wildberg was even more thrilled to come away with the win at the MOC. It sends him into the spring on a high

FLYING HIGH: Princeton High boys’ track star Nils Wildberg flies through the air in the long jump at a meet last spring. Last month, senior star Wildberg won the inaugural NJSIAA Indoor Meet of Champions Long Jump Showcase. Fighting through injury, the Dartmouth College-bound Wildberg produced a best mark of 23’4 to win the competition. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) note and the Tigers are hoping to see more big jumps to come from Wildberg. “I think Nils was blessed,” Samara said. “He was lucky it was his drive leg and not his plant leg. Getting into squat position is very tough for him. Running out of blocks is going to be difficult. Running upright was all right for him. He was very comfortable doing that. To not have the training and practice time in, I was very concerned about rust, but he has an incredible determination to get things done. He wanted to be state champion. He was determined to get it done and he did.” Heading to Dar tmouth College next year to continue his career, Wildberg is determined to produce a big spring. He was disappointed with his final winter meet when he jumped 22’3 for 23rd place at the New Balance Indoor Nationals last Saturday. “I was definitely expecting a little more,” he said. “However, I guess my lack of training really caught up to me finally. I can’t really be too disappointed. I just didn’t have training a really long time. I still have spring and now I can really get back into it outdoors and start training again.” The nationals were a sharp reminder of why Wildberg is anxious to get back to work. He has great potential if he can train consistently while healthy. “The way he was training and competing, I think he would have 100 percent won the national title,” said Samara. “He was on track to go 25 feet. You can only control what you can control. There’s no sense thinking about that now.” Although Wildberg didn’t
match his incredible performances under pressure down the stretch in Easterns and the MOC at the Nationals, he can use it as a learning experience. “Definitely patience,” said Wildberg. “That’s a big one. Learning to trust yourself. At the same time, believing everything will work out for you. When you have an injury like this, you really learn a lot about your body and yourself mentally. I had a lot to think about those two months. Especially after winning Meet of Champions, there’s a lot to think about there. It’s hard to put into words.” Wildberg is an important cog for the PHS team this spring. The Tigers cover the events well with sprinter Matt Perello, pole vaulter Simon Schenk (third at MOC in school-record 15’ 6), shot and discus thrower Paul Brennan, and javelin thrower Ben Kioko expected back, and could use Wildberg’s aid in sprints as they hunt for another state team title. “This is the most special group we’ve ever had,” said Samara. “This was supposed to be their encore year. The injuries have so far put a damper on it. We’re determined they’re not going to go out as a one-hit wonder. We hope they can get the state title again. We have a long way to go.” Wit h Wildberg on t he mend, the PHS track squad is waiting to see what its newest state champion can do when well-trained. “I think things are looking up,” Wildberg s aid. “My knee is looking better. I think I’ll be able to train efficiently. Hopefully I’ll be able to build up and be at my peak at Meet of Champions outdoors.” —Justin Feil
Tripling Win Total from Last Winter, PHS Boys’ Hoops Made Big Strides For the Princeton High boys’ basketball team, its valiant battle against powerhouse Freehold in the opening round of the Group 4 Central Jersey sectional proved to be a microcosm of a positive season. The underdog 14th-seeded PHS jumped out to a 20-15 first quarter lead over thirdseeded and eventual sectional champion Freehold, hit a drought in the second quarter to fall behind, and then battled tooth and nail before succumbing 60-50. “We had a pretty good game plan; the guys played their tails off and we did a lot of good things,” said PHS head coach Patrick Noone. “We just got to a point where we couldn’t score in a stretch during the second quarter and at beginning of third. We kept it within striking distance; I think we were down eight with about three minutes left.” Tiger senior captain and star guard Brendan Rougas did some great things in his finale, tallying a game-high 15 points. “Brendan was awesome, unfortunately it was his last game,” said Noone. “We are going to miss him dearly. He hit a three early and just kind of rode off from there. He played great.” Overall, PHS made great strides this winter, going 1213 after suffering through a 4-21 campaign in 2017-18. “We made a lot of really good progress, our seniors were great,” said Noone,

PDS Girls’ Hoops Showed Growth, Character, As Young Players Gained Valuable Experience On paper, it would appear that it was a rough winter for Liz Sharlow as she took the helm of the Princeton Day School girls’ basketball program. Although PDS took its lumps in posting a 2-19 record, former Lehigh University women’ hoops star Sharlow enjoyed her debut campaign. “It was a learning experience; it was great to see how much the girls grew,”
said Sharlow. “I learned a lot from the girls; they were great teammates and worked so hard. They made it so much fun.” The Panthers had a lot of fun coming through with a 35-33 overtime win against Lawrence High in the final week of the season. “It was an exciting win; it was an overtime game,” said Sharlow of the February 13 contest. “Gwen [Allen] and
Fighting Uphill Battle Against Formidable Foes, PDS Boys’ Hockey Enjoyed Solid Campaign Over the course of the 2018 -19 c a mpa ig n, t he Princeton Day School boys’ hockey team fought an uphill battle nearly every night. Dealing with a daunting schedule that included a gauntlet of formidable foes, PHS didn’t possess the reservoir of talent that is has featured in the past. “Our schedule was just brutal this year,” said PDS head coach Scott Bertoli, whose squad took on such tough non-conference opponents as Don Bosco, Delbarton, Albany Academy (N.Y.), the Groton School (Mass.), La Salle (Pa.), and Seton Hall Prep in addition to playing Mid-Atlantic Hockey League (MAHL) rivals like the Hill School (Pa.), Wyoming Seminary (Pa.), and Lawrenceville. “Without question, this was the hardest schedule we have ever faced, and this year’s team wasn’t the best team we have ever had. It was hard with the lack of depth.” Displaying character and pluck, PDS managed to go 14-12-1, advancing to the MAHL semis where it fell 4-1 to eventual champion Hill. “When we were at full strength and had everyone there, I felt confident playing against anyone,” said Bertoli. “I think we proved that with great games against Hill (a 1-0 loss in overtime on January 9) at relatively full strength and a really good effort against Lawrenceville (a 5-4 defeat on January 24) which proved to be an outstanding team this year by New England standards. They had some really impressive wins.” The Panthers boasted an

Brooke [Smukler] fouled out so some of the younger players really stepped up. Tyler Robinson had a big game, she really played well. Elle Anhut stepped up. Maggie Amaral had some big rebounds.” With a roster featuring four freshmen and four sophomores, a youthful PDS squad gained some valuable experience this winter. “They really improved and showed some resilience,” said Sharlow, whose corps of young players included freshmen Robinson, Anhut, and Madeline Nowack along with sophomores Anna Ellwood, Anna-Marie Zhang, Caroline Topping, and Abigail Weinstein. “We had some tough games.” Senior captains Brooke Smukler and Gwen Allen showed toughness as they led their younger teammates. “Brooke was a big scorer for us; Gwen was a great rebounder and a defender,” said Sharlow, whose roster also included another senior Laurel Peters. “She showed a lot of leadership and heart; she is just so intense and competitive.” In Sharlow’s view, the Panthers have what it takes to be more competitive next season. “It comes down the the work they put in over the offseason, I definitely think we have a foundation to build from,” said Sharlow. “They showed so much progress from the beginning of the year to the end of the season. They believed in one another; I developed trust in them and they trusted me. They were a great group. We have an exciting future.” –Bill Alden

impressive trio of senior stars in forward and captain Coby Auslander along with forward and assistant captain Ty Eastman and defenseman and assistant captain Chip Hamlett. “Most years, I don’t name our captains until the fall; it was an easy decision for me and our coaching staff to name Coby the captain and Ty and Chip the assistant captains at the breakout last year,” said Bertoli, whose senior class also included Kevin Flahive and Aidan York. “I have only done that two or three times. They were effective, they impacted the game and the scoreboard and they endeared themselves to their coaching staff.” Auslander and Eastman had a big impact in their home finale against Father Judge as the Panthers prevailed 6-4 with Auslander tallying four goals and two assists and Eastman chipping in two goals and three assists. “It looked like a group that we would get opportunities against and that was good,” said Bertoli. “We scored goals; it was a great way to end their home careers.” Auslander’s outburst was emblematic of a brilliant final campaign which saw him score 45 points on 20 goals and 25 assists. “I can go on and on about Coby, for him to have a night like he did was great,” said Bertoli of Auslander who tallied 123 points in his Panther career and is headed the Christopher Newport to play for its Division III men’s lacrosse program. “His compete level is off the chart. We have had some really great kids and players here and he is right up there with them.”
The Panthers showed their competitive fire in mid-December when played at the Barber Tournament at the St. Mark’s School (Mass.) and went 1-1-1 despite being undermanned. “We were missing three of our best kids and one of our freshmen who is a talented kid because of club conflicted,” said Bertoli, noting that the team was basically playing with six forwards and four defensemen for three games in 20 hours against New England boarding schools. “We lost a heartbreaker in the last second to Vermont Academy 2-1, we beat Worcester Academy, (Mass.) 7-1, and we tied Kents Hill (Maine) 1-1. When we go up there, I hope we can be competitive in the first couple of games and then hopefully just survive physically in the third game. Here we are in every situation with opportunities to win. It showed the character of the kids; they never fail to amaze me.” Looking ahead, Bertoli believes that the program has the pieces in place to maintain its winning tradition. “We are going to be younger. We have some really good, talented kids who play,” said Bertoli, who will be welcoming back such stars as sophomores Luck Antonacci, Drew McConaughy, Birch Gorman and Gibson Linnehan along with juniors Alex Allen, Chris Cecila, Jeremy Siegel, Justin Sherman, Stephan Gorelenkov, and David Sherman. “It is time for those younger kids to mature and take on greater responsibilities and play more meaningful minutes. I expect that to happen. One thing I never worry about is the effort level that we are going to get and the way the kids conduct themselves.” –Bill Alden

William Paul Jacobs After a long decline, William Paul Jacobs of Princeton, NJ, died peacefully at home in his sleep on Sunday, March 3 at the age of 99. He is survived by his beloved wife of nearly 70 years, Jane Shaw Jacobs; two children, Mark Jacobs of Phoenix, AZ, and Anne Jacobs of West Windsor, NJ; as well as his sister, Mary Jacobs Brown of Worcester, MA; five treasured grandchildren, Jeffrey Jacobs, Robinson Jacobs, Patrick S. Jacobs, Phoebe Brown, and Madeleine J. Jacobs; and six great-grandchildren. Bill was born in Boston, MA, on May 25, 1919 to Elizabeth G. Kennedy Jacobs and Vincent Henr y Jacobs. He grew up in West Roxb u r y, M A , at te n d e d Boys English High School in Boston, and was graduated magna cum laude in 1942 from Harvard University, where he later received a
Ph.D. in biology. He served stateside in the U.S. Army during World War II. W h i l e d oi n g g r a d u ate work at The California Institute of Technology, Bill traveled for a weekend ski trip to Yosemite National Park in February 1946. He found the slopes icy, so he took what he thought was a safe trail through a woods. This strategy led to his losing his way in the mountains, surviving a blizzard and 5 degree temperatures on his first night out, spending eleven days lost in the snow, eating lichen and snowmelt, and finally being rescued only after his parents and the Yosemite ski patrol had conceded his death. Within two years of this misadventure, Bill met and mar r ied Jane Shaw and joined the faculty of biology at Princeton University, where he remained until his retirement in 1989. He studied the hormonal control of plant development and was an early proponent of quantitative techniques in that field. “What Makes Leaves Fall,” one of his early papers published in 1955 in Scientific American, describes how a decrease in the plant hormone auxin coming from the leaf blade creates a specialized layer of self- destr ucting cells, the abscission layer, which weaken a leaf’s attachment to a plant, allowing a breeze to blow the leaf away. Bill also studied a unique alga, Caulerpa, which consists of only a single cell, yet grows to lengths of three feet and differentiates into roots, stems, and leaves. In a paper published again in Scientific American in
1994, he referred to this anomaly as “a gauntlet flung in the face of biological convention” and described the work done in his lab discovering the conditions that allow Caulerpa to develop without interior cell walls. The recipient of a Gugg e n h e i m Fe l l o w s h i p i n 1967, Bill also received the Charles Reid Barnes Life Membership Award from the American Society of Plant Biologists in 1998. He published 165 papers, including seven after his retirement. His book, Plant Hormones and Plant Development, was published in 1979. One of Bill’s regrets when he was lost in Yosemite was that he had not danced enough. This was in spite of having often snuck out of his second story boyhood bedroom in West Roxbury to dance at the RoselandState Ballroom in Boston. Bill compensated during his remaining 73 years, throwing and attending dance par ties, joining Jane on the dance floor at the first trigger of a good song, and playing many Fred Astaire, John Travolta, and Gene Kelly movies for captive grandchildren. In his last years, Bill was cared for with truly amazing grace and loving kindness by his aides and nurses from HomeWatch Care Givers and from Princeton Hospice. In lieu of f lowers, the family suggests a donation to HomeFront in Lawrence Township. A memorial service will be held at The Mountain Lakes House, 57 Mountain Avenue, Princeton at noon on April 6.
Mary Cullens Murdoch January 3, 1933 – February 27, 2019 Mary Cullens Murdoch, a 50-year resident of Princeton, died peacefully of complications from Alzheimer’s disease on Februar y 27, 2019 in her home at Princeton Windrows. Bor n in Newtown, CT, Mary was the only child of Reverend Paul Archibald Cullens and Agnes Robinson Cullens, and the wife for over 60 years of William F. Murdoch, Jr. who predeceased her in 2018.

Princeton Day School Parents Association and head of the local Wheaton College alumni group, Mary also served on the board of the Princeton University McCosh Health Center and more recently chaired the Windrows Welcome Committee. She volunteered for decades to host parties for Princeton alumni and cochaired several major Princeton reunions. She was recognized as an honorary member of Princeton’s Class of 1952. Mary spent 70 summers at her family’s wilderness retreat on the French River in Northern Ontario. She and Bill welcomed family members and guests to the beauty and tranquility of island life where they were surrounded by fresh water and Canadian wildlife. Mary is survived by four children and their spouses, Mary (Molly) Murdoch F i n n e l l a n d S a m u e l C. Finnell, III (Skillman); Elizabeth Murdoch Maguire and Henry C. Maguire, III (Lewisburg, PA); Timothy R. Murdoch and Pascale Lemaire (Montreal); and Kate Murdoch Kern and John W. Kern IV (Bethesda, MD).
