After Expansion Approval PCS, PPS Await Appeal, Law Suit Decisions The way forward for Princeton Charter School and the Princeton Public Schools remains cloudy two weeks after Acting State Commissioner of Education Kimberley Harrington approved the PCS request to expand by 76 students over the next two years. PPS has filed an appeal of the decision and will request a stay, while PPS and PCS have also sued each other for violation of the Sunshine Law [Open Meeting Act]. The District has claimed that the Charter School expansion approval will drain $1.2 million in taxes from the school budget every year, necessitating program and staff cuts or large tax increases. PCS has begun recruiting applicants for next year, under a new weighted lottery system which was included in the recent proposal as a means to increase diversity in PCS admissions. As PPS budget discussions proceed, the question has been raised as to whether a longer phase-in of more than two years on the Charter School expansion would mitigate the financial effect on the District schools. PPS Board President Patrick Sullivan, however, has rejected that possibility, suggesting instead that PCS consider a merger with the school district. Mr. Sullivan mentioned that the District had proposed a merger under which the Charter School would retain much of its autonomy. The alternative, he suggested, would be both undemocratic and expensive, necessitating a significant tax increase for the town. Criticizing the expansion as “exactly counter to what our community wanted,” Mr. Sullivan claimed that it “was done with zero input or representation from the affected parties.” Leaders from PPS and the PCS had been holding private meetings prior to the commissioner’s decision, but apparently little progress was made in reaching a resolution to the conflict. Both sides, however, have expressed frustration with the way the state’s funding laws pit public schools and charter schools against each other in the battle for limited funds, and both have emphasized the desire to work together for the good of the schools and the community.

Princeton Took No Chances With Stella
With some weather websites predicting a foot or more of snow and strong winds for Monday night into Wednesday thanks to the nor’easter named Stella, Princeton’s public works and police departments were taking no chances and preparing for the worst. “We’re ready to go,” said Dan Van Mater, superintendent in the Department of Public Works, on Monday afternoon. “We’re just getting the trucks ready, and the salt dome is full. We’re replenishing what we used last Friday and we have more salt coming in today.” Some 26 people were scheduled to come in to work at midnight. “We take care of it when it starts,” Mr. Van Mater said. “We have everybody come in, as we do with every significant storm.” The same procedure was in process at the Princeton Police Department, where time off was restricted because of the storm. “We’re making sure the vehicles are gassed up and we have an extra dispatcher at the communications center, because call volume always goes up,” said Lieutenant Jon Bucchere, the department’s spokesman. Mr. Bucchere urged the public to visit the police department’s Facebook page as well as the town website to keep abreast of the situation.
“Usually we’ll start putting out messages telling people to stay off the road. You can get trees down, power lines down, traffic accidents — it can be very dangerous,” he said. “We’re going to stay really pro-active with messaging by the minute.” Teased by a run of spring weather last week that coaxed daffodils and crocuses into early bloom, New Jersey residents were taken aback at the predictions of
strong winter weather. But it has been known to snow in the state as late as April. The Great Blizzard of 1888, on record as one of the deadliest snowstorms in U.S. history, left its mark on parts of New Jersey. Other spring snow storms have been recorded since then, the most significant of which was a Category 5 (extreme) storm in 1993 that blanketed some parts of New Jersey with 20 to 30 inches.

Heather Howard Foresees Ongoing Debate Over Complexities of Healthcare Overhaul As President Trump and Republicans in Congress re-affirm their determination to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), growing voices of dissent and mounting complications threaten to prolong the debate. “It’s a tumultuous time in health care as we approach the seventh anniversary of the ACA,” said Heather Howard, director of the state health reform assistance network, Woodrow Wilson School lecturer, and Princeton Council member. Both sides prepared to continue the fight as legislators awaited the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report early
this week analyzing the cost and impact of the Republican bill to repeal and replace major parts of ACA (Obamacare). The CBO assessment is expected to warn that millions of Americans currently insured under the ACA could lose their coverage. Pointing out that this issue resonates far beyond the beltway and that it is the states that implement the ACA, Ms. Howard noted, “The states have a lot at stake. The governors have a lot at stake.” She added, “Here in New Jersey we receive more than $3 billion annually, Continued on Page 12

The Center for Eating Disorders Care (CEDC) at University Medical Center of Princeton has enhanced its Adult Partial Hospital Program with additional therapeutic activities and separation from its inpatient program. The Partial Hospital Program now has a separate treatment space with dining room, group room and lounge. This program will operate independently from the inpatient program. CEDC Partial Hospital patients also have additional experiential activities and the option of full day (8 a.m. to 6 p.m., including three meals) or shorter day (8 a.m. to 3 p.m., including two meals). Both schedules are available three to five days per week, depending on each patient’s needs. The CEDC is nationally known for its acute care services for those with severe eating disorders, aged eight and older, who benefit from intensive treatment and medical care available for co-existing conditions. The Partial Hospital Program is an option for patients following an inpatient or residential stay, or who are struggling in the community and need intensive daytime treatment. The program enables patients to maintain the same treatment team throughout the recovery process for continuity of care if they have been inpatients at the Center for Eating Disorders Care. Experiential treatment opportunities include cooking groups, meals served family–style, take-out ordering, restaurant outings with staff, and grocery shopping excursions. The relapse prevention curriculum has also been expanded. For more information, call (609) 853-7575 or visit princetonhcs.org/eatingdisorders.

RECONSIDERING CONSOLIDATION: Former Princeton Township Mayor Chad Goerner, whose book on Princeton’s historic consolidation has been recently released, is shown here delivering the keynote speech at the New York State Local Government Innovation Conference last November.

A Former Mayor Looks Back In Book About Consolidation
By the time consolidation of Princeton Township and Princeton Borough was officially put into effect four years ago, Chad Goerner was no longer in public office. But Mr. Goerner, who served as mayor of the former Township from 2006 until opting not to run for re-election in 2012, remained actively in-
volved in making the historic merger a reality. The author of the original proposal for the towns to develop a consolidation and shared services study commission, Mr. Goerner helped guide the process by serving on the Transition Task Force. Now, he has written a book about the experience. A Tale of Two Tigers: Princeton’s Historic Consolidation, was published in January and is available from amazon.com.
TOPICS Of the Town “I did it to memorialize the history of consolidation. From my perspective, what we did was pretty unique and special,” said Mr. Goerner, who is First Vice President — Wealth Management at UBS FInancial Services Inc. “I wanted to go back and look at the history of consolidation, in detail, and figure out what went right this time and what went wrong in previous attempts. It really kind of became a story in and of itself.” Previous efforts to merge the two Princetons date back to the 1950s and beyond. “There was an attempt by the town to incorporate as a Borough back in the early 1800s, mainly due to the fact that they were concerned about the African American population, and suppressing that,” Mr. Goerner said. “It was basically racism.” Doing his research, Mr.
Goerner was surprised to learn of an 1894 school law that allowed the towns to incorporate in order to control their own school district. “But what was most surprising were the themes that were in favor of or against consolidation were consistent throughout,” he said. “A lot of elected officials started out hesitant to look at consolidating because they were concerned about control over their own community. But after they served for a period of time, they realized how inefficient things really were, and changed their minds.” The book looks at various issues including the controversy over moving the Dinky train station, the “cultural” dif ferences bet ween t he Township and the Borough, the perceived effect of consolidation on police departments, and the response to Hurricane Sandy (after consolidation) in comparison to Hurricane Irene (pre-consolidation). “The response to Irene and Sandy was like night and day,” Mr. Goerner said. “I think a lot of people still don’t understand that even though we consolidated and have great savings, the facts are that Princeton has had one of the lowest municipal tax growth rates of any town in Mercer County. that is due specifically to consolidation.” The second part of the book is designed as a kind of template for other towns considering consolidation.

“It’s a little bit of a handbook for other elected officials,” Mr. Goerner said. “It’s about why they should consider looking at shared services and consolidation at the same time.” Graphics in the book include flyers that were created during the years leading up to the vote on whether to merge. One from 1996, advocating staying separate, pictures Napoleon and Hitler (“History Shows That Once You Start Consolidating, It’s Hard To Stop … The More Power You Have, The More Power You Want”). Another, in favor, is undated (“Don’t be Myth-Led! Consolidation is a win for the Borough and our entire Community”). So how would Mr. Goerner rate consolidation in its fourth year? “I think it’s gone very well so far,” he said. “One of the
things, from my perspective, is that as time goes on, the question of whether it was right or not will be really moot,” he said. “Most people will not understand why we were two separate municipalities. But because it was such a long attempt, there will always be lingering animosity for those who were against it and have been for decades. The reality is that it certainly was successful.” —Anne Levin

There’s a new trend in healthcare, and it’s gaining momentum in our area. By Sarah Emily Gilbert (Originally published in Princeton Magazine) Dr. Barbara A. Brown (left) and Dr. Lynne B. Kossow of Princeton Lifestyle Medicine.
or the past two years, Dr. Lynne B. Kossow and Dr. Barbara A. Brown of Princeton Lifestyle Medicine have offered their patients far more than the traditional primary care practice. Most doctors see 25-30 patients a day for an average of 15 minutes, but Drs. Kossow and Brown see six to eight patients a day for up to an hour. In addition to providing treatment for acute illnesses, the doctors act as their clients’ healthcare coaches through Lifestyle Medicine, a scientific approach to patient wellness by effecting changes in areas such as diet, physical activity, and stress management. With the current shortage of primary care physicians and the abundance of high volume practices, this type of individualized attention is rare. However, by switching to a concierge format, doctors like Kossow and Brown are able to practice medicine that consists of this broad-spectrum care. Concierge medicine, also known as retainer-based medicine, is an umbrella term for private medical care wherein patients pay an out-of-pocket fee in exchange for enhanced care. Born in the 1990s, concierge medicine was once thought of as a service for the wealthy that charged patients a lofty fee for luxury medicine. In recent years, it has evolved to accommodate patients across all income brackets, leading to expanding interest among patients and their primary care doctors. According to a survey released by the American Academy of Private Physicians at the AAPP 2015 Fall Summit, more than 45 percent of 862 independent physicians would consider a concierge or similar membership model in the next three years. This may be due in part to our aging population needing increased and varied medical services, leading to an imbalanced patient/doctor ratio. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act has increased the number of insured patients, putting a further strain on primary care doctors. As a result, physicians are often unable to dedicate enough time to each patient. In the hopes of increasing both job and patient satisfaction in a financially sustainable way, primary physicians like Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown are looking toward concierge medicine. “Where conventional medicine is failing is in the prevention and reversal of chronic diseases that are becoming an epidemic in the United States today,” explain the doctors. “The current insurance model is built upon a problem-based economic reimbursement that encourages doctors to address medical problems very quickly. This leads to most doctors rushing to see 25-30 patients per day in order to make ends meet…This is not how we have ever practiced. We always want to have the time to address the root cause of diseases that are preventable today.” “For the past two years, we have been offering our Lifestyle Medicine Concierge Program as an optional program for our patients,” they continue. “Lifestyle Medicine is a 21st century approach to healthcare that consolidates the very best characteristics of traditional medicine with the profound impact of lifestyle behaviors on health. As our program grew, it became readily apparent to us that integrating Lifestyle Medicine into our internal medicine practice
was the best way for us to continue to provide exceptional care… We feel that the concierge model is the only way to effectively [do that].” Concierge medical practices come in various forms, including those that reject insurance plans all together, but this is not the case for Princeton Lifestyle Medicine. Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown accept insurance for all covered medical services. In addition, their patients pay an annual fee of $1,200 for the Lifestyle Medicine Concierge program, which gives them access to an elevated level of care. Trained at the Institute of Lifestyle Medicine at Harvard Medical School, the doctors are at the vanguard of their field, having lectured about their practice development model at The Institute of Lifestyle Medicine Conference in 2015. They are also members of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine and the American College of Physicians. Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown’s practice is unique in that it offers patients comprehensive conventional medical care combined with lifestyle counseling. Patients interested in a natural approach to disease prevention are provided in-depth, individualized coaching based on their needs. The doctors can assist with everything from quitting smoking to creating a manageable diet and exercise plan. According to the doctors, this is an evidence-based practice that has been shown to prevent, reverse, or slow down heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure, diabetes, dementia, and some cancers. The concierge model offers Princeton Lifestyle Medicine patients additional benefits including access to the doctors’ emails, cell phone numbers, and private phone line, extended patient office visits, a one-hour consultation, and same or next day appointments. As a result, patients see Drs. Kossow and Brown not only as accomplished medical doctors, but health advocates, mentors, and even friends. “Our practice structure allows us to spend more time educating our patients about what may be going on with them medically,” the doctors explain. “We are better able to work with them as partners in their care and advocate for them with their specialists or if they are in the hospital. We provide tremendous support and guidance to them and their caretakers or family. We are happy to have this enhanced communication with our patients. It allows us to make social visits when they are hospitalized at the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro so that we can stay in close touch while they are receiving care.” Concierge practices like Princeton Lifestyle Medicine focus the healthcare system on its most vital component: the patient-doctor relationship. The model emphasizes quality care instead of quick care, benefitting both parties. This is helping revive medical students’ interest in internal medicine, which is predicted to increase the number of primary care doctors and revitalize our healthcare system. As leaders in both concierge and Lifestyle medicine, it comes as no surprise that Dr. Kossow and Dr. Brown are at the forefront of this effort, bringing Princeton into the future of healthcare.
The Princeton Lifestyle Medicine Concierge Program is $1,200 per year. The fee can be paid monthly, quarterly, biannually, or annually, and credit cards are accepted as payment. All medical services are billed through the patient’s insurance company as usual. Princeton Lifestyle Medicine is located at 731 Alexander Road, Suite 200 in Princeton, New Jersey.

John Witherspoon Middle School Parent Praises Principal, Faculty, Environment
To the Editor: As a parent of two John Witherspoon Middle Schoolers, I am writing to share why I love this wonderful school! JW is run by a dedicated principal, Jason Burr, who works closely with the faculty and staff in order to offer an impressive array of academic and extracurricular opportunities and a warm, nurturing environment to all who attend the school. This is no small task with about 760 preteens and teenagers. Mr. Burr clearly loves this age group, greeting them with a big smile every day and at the many school events that he attends. JW offers academics rivaled by none. But more importantly, the teachers and staff members strive to build well-rounded, happy kids. Middle school is a time of enormous growth — socially, physically, and academically. JW offers kids a way to spread their wings academically, but also to try different sports (15 to choose from), music, drama, musical theater, science bowl (going to the middle school national finals), poetry, journalism, art, engineering, and more. The teachers are there early, available to meet with our children and to help them reach their goals, whatever those goals may be. As a parent of three students who have graduated from or are currently at JW, I can say unequivocally that we raise really good humans at JW! I am proud to be a JW parent and I thank Mr. Burr and the rest of the JW team for creating a wonderful learning and growing environment for our children. DInA ShAW Clover Lane
Neither Sibling Preference Nor a Lottery Would Be Needed if PCS Could Expand
To the Editor: I read Cara Carpenito’s letter last week asking other parents to examine their conscience [“PCS Parents Should Examine Their Conscience: Can They Continue to ‘Choose’ a Segregated School,” March 8 Mailbox]. Princeton is a town of unmistakable wealth, with average incomes triple that of our neighbor Trenton. Adding to our schools’ economic and racial segregation, we additionally bus in mostly Caucasian students from wealthy, suburban Cranbury, which is almost as far away as Trenton. Princeton and Cranbury students attend schools that afford privileges out of reach for most Trenton children. To address this issue, I implore the Board of Education to implement a voluntary program where Princeton parents who want to demonstrate their commitment to
this end, and is planning more. With the weighted lottery and sibling preference (lottery and sibling preference, incidentally, are also used by PPS’s dual-language immersion program) working in concert, I expect PCS to succeed in short order — if only special interest groups stop using scare tactics and trust parents to decide based on schools’ offerings, not scurrilous moral allegations. Last, Professor Rubin’s letter. Space is limited, so I’ll focus on these facts: 1) She cited Bruce Baker as a supporting voice, but one should note that Bruce Baker supplied the vanished slide from her 12/13/16 presentation to the BoE — invited by above-mentioned Andrea Spalla — that stated PCS ranked 622nd in the state (hard to believe even if anti-PCS), and 2) that while 22 percent of kids at JWMS did opt out of PARCC, of those who did take it, 37 percent did indeed fail, and that’s not nothing. I know that I am far from the only parent at PCS who moved to Princeton for PPS, but there my kids are at PCS. Perhaps if PPS took some steps to understand the reasons each family left PPS after having tried it (survey?), PPS might improve for all kids. If PPS did this instead of engaging in lawfare, nobody would want to go to PCS, and it would die. As it is, absent that level of interest, engagement, and self-reflection by PPS, I am glad that more district families will have the same choice ours did. LIZ WInSLOW Dodds Lane
Parent With Two Children at PCS, One at PPS Residents Give High Marks to Town’s Takes Issue With Letters in March 8 Mailbox Curbside Organic Waste Program
To the Editor: In the March 8 issue of Town Topics, three anti-PCS letters were published. I’d like to respond to each letter. Cara Carpenito asked PCS parents to “examine their conscience [sic].” When the author’s fundamental assumption is that the parents of 348 children (plus waitlist) are bad people, how does a community even begin to discuss collaboration? Would the author say that to our faces at a sports competition, piano recital, etc.? As I have two children at PCS and one at PPS, does that make me merely two-thirds evil? Further to Ms. Carpenito’s letter, PCS’s “segregation,” particularly of African American students, was not a statistical issue until 2009-2010, when two notable things happened: 1) the financial crisis, which may have led to many private school children returning to public and entering the PCS lottery, and 2) the formation of the de facto anticharter advocacy group Save Our Schools-n.J., (“SOS-nJ, co-founded by Julia Sass Rubin, who has done work on PPS’s behalf against PCS, outgoing BoE President Andrea Spalla, and Mayor Liz Lempert). As for Ms. Weir’s assertion that charters are required to mirror the sending district’s population; they actually must attempt to do so. PCS does a large amount of outreach to
To the Editor: My wife and I are unabashed fans of Princeton’s Curbside Organic Program, and so proud that our city was first in new Jersey to have one! We knew about the obvious benefit — 25 percent of an average house’s waste can be composted. But we were surprised by other things: how easy it was to find compostable bags at Ace or McCaffrey’s (we use small ones under our sink which we put into larger ones in the garage every few days — no smell, no mess); that wheeling the bin to the curb once a week is effortless (and we’re not youngsters); and that determining what goes in is brainless — “if it was once ‘alive,’ it’s compostable.” We even put in pizza boxes and coffee filters. And our trash bin is lighter, with all that organic water weight now in small bags. But the best of it is the rich compost that the program returns to us each spring. We cover our garden with black gold. People need to renew by April 1, so we did it on the municipal website www.princetonnj.gov/organic/CurbsideOrganics.html. If you haven’t joined already, do it soon so you can get your black gold this spring. ChRIS COUCILL AnD LIZ FILLO Constitution hill West

Mailbox Letters Do Not Necessarily Reflect the Views of Town Topics
equality can offer to swap their children’s spots in Princeton schools with children from Trenton. Then, instead of having parents chastise others about segregation, and generating ill will, they can instead lead by example and serve as an inspiration to everyone. I also read Lori Weir’s letter about eliminating sibling preference at PCS [“n.J. Commissioner of Education Decision a Case of Taxation Without Representation,” March 8 Mailbox], which even PPS uses in their lottery-based duallanguage immersion program. To get some facts about who would be most impacted if siblings were split across schools, I examined the Pew Research Center report on Parenting in America. Across the United States, 33 percent of Caucasian mothers had 3 or more children, and the numbers for other racial groups were Asian (27 percent), African-American (40 percent), and hispanic (50 percent). If Princeton has similar demographic patterns, eliminating sibling preference would impact African-Americans and hispanics more than other racial groups. In comparison, the weighted lottery approved for PCS will increase the chances for economically disadvantaged groups. numerically, the calls to dismantle sibling preference seem counterproductive. In the longer term, neither sibling preference nor a lottery would be needed if PCS were allowed to expand to meet all of the demand for it. VIVEk PAI Bertrand Drive

Bryn Mawr Book Sale Musings on the Ides of March With Shakespeare and Scott Fitzgerald
t’s so quiet a moment you can hear the earth turning. “Here’s the book I sought,” Brutus says. “I put it in the pocket of my gown.” He’s talking to his servant Lucius in a scene near the end of Act IV of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. “Let me see, let me see, is not the leaf turn’d down where I left reading? Here it is, I think.” We’re in Brutus’s tent, it’s “the deep of night,” and we have no idea what he’s reading. All we know is it’s a book, with the place marked by turning down the edge of a page, a familiar everyday human gesture that makes the moment intimate and real, whether it’s 44 B.C. or 1599 when the play was performed or now, on the page today, March 15, 2017, The Ides of March, the day Caesar was assassinated. Brutus hasn’t long to live and he knows it. He’s about to be visited by Caesar’s ghost, and Shakespeare has him misplacing a book, asking his servant to help him find it (“I was sure your lordship did not give it to me”) and then, after humbly admitting “Bear with me, good boy, I am much forgetful,” asking Lucius to play “a strain or two” of music. Here’s the mighty Brutus who delivered the “unkindest cut of all” to Caesar and he’s gently deferring to a servant boy, “I trouble thee too much, but thou art willing,” and again “I should not urge thy duty past thy might,” and yet again (in case you doubted his impending fate) “I will not hold thee long. If I do live, I will be good to thee.” And when Lucius falls asleep, ever gentle Brutus, the quiet reader, goes out of his way not to wake him (“Good boy, good night”). Then, at the very moment he finds where he “left off reading,” the “monstrous apparition” descends upon him. It’s All About Reading The scene with Brutus and his book suggests a hushed Shakespearean state of mind conducive to an appreciation of the timeless pleasure of reading celebrated every year by the Bryn Mawr-Wellesley Book Sale. With this great community event only two days away, what better occasion to think about reading? I mean deep, blissed-out reading, the total absorption in a text bound between two covers like the 80,000 or so that are, to put it crudely, up for grabs this Friday when the dealers and first-comers will make their customary dent in the massive stock after paying $25 for the privilege of a day-long preview. Thinking Fitzgerald Of the rarities in this year’s Collectors Corner, one with special Princeton associations is The Thoughtbook of F. Scott Fitzgerald, first published in facsimile by the Princeton University Library in 1965. However, a book that means much more to me in the afterglow of that moment with Brutus is one of the great “thoughtbooks” in American literature. Edited by Fitzgerald’s old friend and Princeton classmate Edmund Wilson, The Crack Up is titled after the essay of the same name. What makes my own copy of the 1956 New Directions paperback a potent example of the tenuous notion of “value” in a world of secondhand books is that I’ve kept this battered volume, a Christmas gift from my mother when I was 17 (the spine barely holding together its 347 pages ) for all of my adult life.
The DNA of a Poet Fitzgerald’s Thoughtbook shows Scott recording his moves in teenage society, measuring one girl against another, with regular entries about where he stood in this or that one’s affectations in relation to this or that male rival. Kept between August 1910 and February 1911, the journal was completed two months before he entered the Newman School in Hackensack. Some typical entries: “Last year in dancing school I got 11 val-

Works (Boston: Hilliard, Gray and Company, 1836), the Holy Grail I used to dream of finding at Bryn Mawr in the days when I was a book sale regular. The quest began 30 years ago when I read in Jay Leyda’s invaluable Melville Log how Melville, whose eyes were “as tender as a young sparrows” had been unable to comfortably read Shakespeare until he found this very edition with its “glorious great type, every letter whereof is a soldier & the top of every “t” like a musket barrel.” Thanks to the Net, I was finally able to get my hands on the edition that gave Shakespeare to Melville as he was about to embark on his most Shakespearean work, Moby Dick. A book dealer in Ohio had it listed for $150. Each of the seven volumes still carries the bookplate of the Mount Union College Library, the pocket in back still holding a borrower’s card with the title typed at the top and the handwritten names of four students (Williams, Brummer, Moffet, and Montgomery) who checked it out between 1958 and 1968. For book dealers, the ex-library aspect, even though the books are in excellent condition, would take hundreds of dollars off the value. On the collector’s site addall.com I found one edition, “professionally rebound,” listed for $498.89. For me, the library binding and the check-out card with the students’ names add to the edition’s character, though more than anything else, what gives these books a value beyond price is knowing that almost 200 years later I’m following the same tactile/ visual route taken by Melville, experiencing the texture, atmosphere and substance of the page and shape of the words. It’s almost as good as holding his copy. Light to Read By Finally, in addition to that hushed scene between Brutus, his book, and his young servant, there’s a line in Act II of Julius Caesar that illuminates my sense of the reading experience at its best. Once again it’s night and Brutus is about to open a letter Lucius has handed him: “The exhalations whizzing in the air give so much light,” he says, “that I may read by them.” he white glow I read those words by the other night was provided by a humble little booklight. I was leaning on one elbow, all darkness around me, and there it was, the improbable idea of reading by the light of “exhalations whizzing in the air.” I read the line again and then again. The whole play seemed to be poised on those words at that moment, and so it was, since the letter is urging Brutus to follow through on what he’d already been contemplating (‘Speak, strike, redress!’). I looked for a note at the bottom of the page on the Elizabethan usage of “exhalations,” but none was there. It didn’t matter; it would have been out of place, presumptuous, like annotating magic. ——— The cover image of Fitzgerald’s Thoughtbook shown here is from the recent University of Minnesota reprint, subtitled A Secret Boyhood Diary, which is available in Kindle and paperback; the copy in Collector’s Corner is the much rarer 1965 Princeton University Library edition of the facsimile of Fitzgerald’s handwritten journal.

entines and this year 15.” “I am just crazy about Margaret Armstrong and I have the most awful crush on her that ever was.” After fearing that a rival had Margaret’s heart, he records how she tells another girl “she liked me best. All the way home I was in the seventh heaven of delight.” However rudimentary, here are intimations of Zelda and Scott in real life and the triangle of Daisy, Gatsby, and Tom in The Great Gatsby. The notebooks in The Crack Up, on the other hand, abound with glimpses of the poetry indispensable to Fitzgerald’s novelistic identity: Suddenly the room rang like a diamond
and other parts are under continual surveillance by the authorties. Then there’s this one: Bryn Mawr coverlet. So far I’ve been unable to find a Bryn Mawr alumna who knows what this could relate to; the most obvious source might be Fitzgerald’s daughter Scottie, who went to Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore but not, it seems, the college in suburban Philadelphia that co-sponsors this week’s community book event. Bringing Shakespeare to Melville As soon as I realized that Town Topics would be coming out on the Ides of March, I wanted to read Julius Caesar, grateful for the excuse to take out volume VI of The Dramatic

Healthcare Overhaul continued from page one
and about 800,000 people have received healthcare insurance who didn’t have it before. We’ve cut in half the number of uninsured. Those funds have helped to shore up the state budget and helped health care providers and hospitals.” Governors dealing with reality at the local level, she pointed out, have been a moderating influence on the healthcare debate. “Chris Christie, for example, has not been a fan of the ACA, but he has been a fan of the money saved for the state, “ she said. Ms. Howard noted that blue state governors have stood up and said ‘don’t take it away,’ but she added that half the states that have chosen to expand Medicaid are red states, like Indiana and Ohio. Of course there have also been governors who have chosen not to expand Medicaid in their states and are eager to speed the demise of the ACA. One possibility proposed as a replacement for Medicaid are per capita caps, according to Ms. Howard, who described them as a form of block grants to the states. She warned, however, “when program funding gets capped
the federal government cuts back, fund amounts shrink and people would lose health care coverage, further eroding the safety net.” Ms. Howard went on to note that despite the advantages of increased predictability for the federal government and some flexibility for governors, a block grant proposal would set off further controversy and disadvantages. “I would anticipate an incredible food fight in Congress over the details. I think that proposal would get bogged down in a lot of debates over a shrinking pie. Block grants of any kind would probably result in reduced benefits for many.” As he took a closer look at his campaign promise to quickly repeal and replace Obamacare, President Trump last month observed, “Nobody knew health care could be so complicated.” That comment sounds more and more like an understatement. Looking forward to studying the CBO report, Ms. Howard hopes to see Congress and the president avoid any hasty decisions on the many complex issues involved. “I hope there will be time for people to analyze the fiscal impact of alternatives and also the human impact,” she said. “I hope the debate will continue.” —Donald Gilpin

“While we, as a District, are committed to addressing this decision in the courts,” Mr. Cochrane said, “we are equally committed to ensuring that our schools, our classrooms, and our community remain welcoming environments for every student and their families.” Continuing to contend that the expansion plan would have limited impact on the District, PCS Board Chair Paul Josephson highlighted the importance of choice in public education and expressed his confidence that the two schools “will be able to find common ground going forward and that we can work together, collaboratively and in good faith, to provide the best possible public education opportunities for all Princeton students.” Collaboration bet ween the two warring groups will be the challenging order of business after the courts have rendered their decisions on the law suits and the District’s appeal of the expansion approval. —Donald Gilpin

The two will be presenting their images from a photographic tour they took of western Ireland in an upcoming exhibit at Gallery 14 in Hopewell titled, “Ireland: Two Views.”
“Ireland: Two Views” Coming to Gallery 14
In 2016, husband and wife photographers David Wurtzel and Martha Weintraub joined a photographic tour of western Ireland led by world famous photographer Ron Rosenstock. Ron, a retired professor of photography, has been leading tours of Ireland for over 30 years. He owned a Bed and Breakfast in Westport, County Mayo. It was the base for the tour. Each day, Ron led the group of six photographers to locations he had discovered over the years. The photographers were then turned loose to explore and photograph — even time to set up tripods. Gradually, history came alive. Destroyed religious structures — abbeys and churches — are still revered. The impact of the potato famine is written in abandoned farms. There was a trip to a museum dedicated to the Irish Rebellion, 100 years earlier. But the spirit of the Irish people is unquenchable. No more vivid evidence was the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Westport. Wurtzel and Weintraub pres ent t heir ind iv idual perspectives of the country in “Ireland: Two Views,” an integrated exhibit at Gallery 14. Their photographs will be on display from March 17 – April 16. There will be an opening reception Friday, March 17 from 6 to 8 p.m. and an opportunity to meet the photographers on Sunday, March 18 from 1 to 3 p.m. Gallery 14, located at 14 Mercer Street in Hopewell, is open weekends from noon–5 p.m. and by appointment.

Arts Council of Princeton Awarded “Favorite Art Gallery”
The Arts Council of Princeton has been named “Favorite Art Gallery” in the 2017 JerseyA r ts.com People’s Choice Awards. Presented by Discover Jersey Arts, a program of the ArtPride New Jersey Foundation and New Jersey State Council on
the Arts, the annual Awards highlight the work of New Jersey’s vital and diverse arts community. “We are honored to be recognized for our beloved Taplin Gallery and to be among the top arts organizations in the state,” said Taneshia Nash Laird, Arts Council of Princeton executive director. “The Princeton community, and surrounding area, is fortunate to have a vibrant local arts scene that we are grateful to be a part of. We appreciate the wonderful support from peer organizations and our constituents.” This year, nearly 18,000 arts lovers cast their ballots for their favorite local groups and downtowns. The Arts Council of Princeton was amongst those honored this morning at the 2017 N.J. Conference on Tourism in Atlantic City. “For the ninth year in a row, the people of New Jersey have told us loud and clear that the arts matter,” said Nick Paleologos, executive director of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts. “In every corner of the state, from the smallest town to the biggest city, we rely on the work of these exceptional artists and arts organizations to make our communities vibrant, unique places to live, work, and visit.” The Arts Council of Princeton was one of 98 arts organizations and 11 downtown districts nominated in 16 categories, including favor ite per for ming ar ts center, dance company, art gallery, choral group, and more. Nominees were determined by their peers in the Jersey Arts Marketers network, made up of hundreds of arts groups from around the state. “The arts organizations highlighted in the JerseyArts.com People’s Choice Awards will not come as a surprise to many. The winners and nominees alike inspire hundreds every day,” said Adam Perle, president and CEO of ArtPride New Jersey. “These groups help our neighborhoods reach new heights and give us permission to fly to Neverland, dance on rooftops, or

Expedition Explores Uncharted Island in Remake of Horror Series
he original King Kong (1933), starring Fay Wray, was about an expedition to an uncharted island in the Indian Ocean that was inhabited by prehistoric creatures. The explorers captured and caged a gigantic ape and put it on exhibition in New York as the 8th Wonder of the World. Kong escapes and wreaks havoc in the city before scaling the face of the Empire State Building during one of the most iconic climaxes in the annals of cinema. A spin-off, Son of Kong, was released later that year, and launched a series of sequels and remakes. Kong: Skull Island is a refreshing remake of the original and co-stars Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, John C. Reilly, and Tom Hiddleston. The film was directed by Jordan VogtRoberts who made his debut in 2013 with the comedy The Kings of Summer. The special effects adventure unfolds in the 1970s, near the end of the Vietnam conflict. As the
film opens, we find Bill Randa (Goodman) pressuring a U.S. senator (Richard Jenkins) to underwrite an expedition to a Pacific island that is constantly surrounded by treacherous storms that have caused the mysterious disappearance of countless boats and airplanes. Once the expedition is approved, Randa assembles a crew composed of a photographer (Larson), a geologist (Corey Hawkins), a biologist (Jing Tian), and a bureaucrat (John Ortiz). The team is escorted to the island by a squadron of Vietnam veterans led by Lieutenant Colonel Preston Packard (Jackson). It’s man versus monsters in a struggle to survive in a hellhole that time forgot. Stay until the end of the credits and you’ll see an extended postscript previewing Godzilla vs. Kong, a sequel slated for release in the spring of 2020. Excellent (HHHH). Rated PG-13 for action, intense violence, and brief profanity. Running time: 118 minutes. Distributor: Warner Brothers Pictures. —Kam Williams

Joe Hage, Chase Private Client Mortgage Banker, Helps Individuals With Their Real Estate Options “Land is the only thing in the world that amounts to anything, Scarlet, for it’s the only thing in the world that lasts.” erald O’Hara’s statement to his daughter Scarlet about their plantation Tara in Gone With the Wind still resonates today. “It’s always better to buy than to rent if you are able to do so,” points out Joe Hage, Chase private Client Mortgage Banker. “The one investment you can count on to grow is real estate. Historically, an investment in real estate will increase.”
IT’S NEW To Us
Headquartered at the JP Morgan Chase Bank at 16 Nassau Street, Mr. Hage has been in banking for 15 years, always working in retail mortgage banking with the largest banks in the country. Assisting people to navigate and negotiate the complicated and challenging process of buying a house is his area of expertise, as well as his greatest pleasure. Residential mortgages are his specialty.
“I help guide customers through the process,” he explains, noting information they should know ahead of time. “Before the clients go looking for a home, they should come to see me. They need to know what they can afford before requesting to see a house, and putting in any offers. There is always a risk factor, and I will evaluate that risk. They can get a pre-qualification letter at no cost from me to take to the realtors and look for a home, but they first need to know how much they can afford. This is very important because they will have other monthly bills to pay. They need to be clear about this. “Also,” he continues, “you want to make sure you have 30 to 60 days for the process. The bank has to determine your credit rating, income, assets, and reserves — all to make sure you can afford the house.” When buying a new house, Mr. Hage notes that a 30year mortgage is typical, and it is customary to put 20 percent down. Mr. Hage is a licensed mor tgage banker, NML S ID 448878. He can handle loans in every state, and he helps people all over the country. “The majority of my clients are married couples,
people with families, also singles, graduate students, and business owners. They vary in age from first-time home-owners to retirees, who may want to downsize. Some clients in Princeton are moving within town from a four- or five-bedroom house to a three- or two-bedroom so they can still have the quality of living in town but without having to pay the extra costs to live here.” In addit ion, Mr. Hage points out that he often helps people with refinancing. “They may want to renovate the house, consolidate debt and use the equity for other needs. More times, a refinance is used to help get them a lower interest rate. For example, if they are paying a five percent mortgage, we may be able to reduce it to four percent. This is a good time to refinance. Also, it can be a good time to consolidate debt, including credit cards. Also, he points out, “With the current volatility in the stock market, people take money out in order to buy a house as an investment or a second home.” During the past 15 years, Mr. Hage has noticed changes in the banking business, especially with the advances in technology. “When I began, we were hand-writing
the applications. By 2006, that had all changed, and everything was changing over to a paperless process.” However, he adds, there is still nothing like a face-toface meeting. “I still use the ‘old school’ approach. Faceto-face and not just having an 800 number. Getting a mortgage is one of the largest debts people will incur, and I want to help them all I can and have it be as comfortable as it can be. “Of course, you have to adapt to change, and staying up-to-date with all the regulations is crucial. We always educate the clients so they can understand the process. There are so many options today, and I want to emphasize that it is very important for people to work with an experienced, educated professional. “JP Morgan Chase has been around for many decades, and we make sure we are always doing the right thing for the consumer. Personally, I am often on the phone after hours and later at night with clients. I work at the same time the real estate brokers work. My priority is always helping the consumer, and I have a very rewarding relationship with the real estate people.” Mr. Hage looks forward to many more years as a residential mortgage specialist. “I enjoy looking out for people and their families and being part of this community.

Tiger Men’s Hoops Wins Ivy Tournament, Will Face Notre Dame in NCAA Opener
It was a nightmare scenario coming to life for the Princeton University men’s basketball team. After producing a dream season that saw the Tigers go 14-0 in Ivy League regular season play, Princeton found itself trailing host Penn last Saturday afternoon in the semifinals of the league’s inaugural postseason tournament. With the Palestra in an uproar and urging the fourthplace Quakers to the upset, Princeton head coach Mitch Henderson knew his squad was on the ropes as it looked to keep alive in its quest for the NCAA tournament berth that went to the winner of tourney. “I didn’t know how we were going to get on top of the game,” said Henderson, whose team trailed 44-34 early in the second half. “We were behind in so many different ways, not just in the score but physically and mentally. They were putting a beating on us.” Showing the resolve that got them through an undefeated Ivy campaign, the Tigers rallied as sophomore Myles Stephens flew in for a tip-in to knot the game at 59-59 with six seconds left and force overtime. Princeton went on a 9-0 run to start the extra session and never looked back on the way to a 72-64 win. “I think we got it tied and then they went up four
and they missed a three and Devin (Cannady) got a chance to make a couple of free throws,” said Henderson, who got 21 points and 10 rebounds from Stephens in the triumph with junior Amir Bell chipping in 16 points off the bench and sophomore Cannady scoring 12 points, including 10-of-10 from the free throw line. “I thought that was a huge turning point, it gave us a chance. We have always been able to capitalize on small chances.This group wins close games; it is a very tough bunch.” A day later against Yale in the championship game, Princeton broke open a close contest, pulling away to a 71-59 victory and earning the league’s automatic berth to the NCAA tournament. “There was some tension that had come out and I thought we did a good job today of adjusting,” said Henderson, whose team improved to 23-6 as it posted its 19th straight victory. “There is a plan going into the game. We take a few haymakers and they go now we are ready to fight and they go forward from there. I think that is what makes this group what it is.” Princeton senior star and co-captain Spencer Weisz saw a fighting spirit on the defensive end as a critical factor in they win over the Bulldogs.
UP FOR THE IRISH: Members of the Princeton University men’s basketball team, from left, Hans Brase, Pete Miller, Steve Cook, and Spencer Weisz, let out a yelp at a gathering at Triumph Brewing Company last Sunday evening after learning that they will be facing Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. The Tigers defeated Yale 71-59 earlier in the day in the finals of the inaugural Ivy League tournament in improving to 23-6 and posting their 19th straight victory. Princeton earned a No. 12 seed in the West Regional of the NCAA tourney and will head to Buffalo, N.Y. to face the fifth-seeded Fighting Irish (25-8) on March 16 at Buffalo’s KeyBank Center.

“We got punched in the mouth a few times early; we didn’t come out as strong as we would have liked to,” said Weisz, who had seven points and eight assists against Yale with Stephens leading the way as he contributed 23 points and eight rebounds. “Yale is a great team. We settled down in the second half and got some good shots offensively. Our defense is what carried us all year and we really stuck to that today.” Going undefeated in regular season conference play and then winning the first Ivy tourney is a great achievement for the program. “It is certainly tough; this tournament was new for everyone,” added Weisz, the Ivy League Player of the Year this season. “I still think it is a great thing for the league. There is so much exposure; the atmosphere was tremendous. Fortunately we were able to come out with two titles. We are looking to do a lot more in the dance.” On Sunday evening, the Tigers got their assignment for the Big Dance as they earned a No. 12 seed in the West Regional of the NCAA Tournament and will head to Buffalo, N.Y. to face fifthseeded Notre Dame (25-8) on March 16 at Buffalo’s KeyBank Center. With Princeton having narrowly missed going to the NCAA tourney last year after finishing in second place one game behind champion Yale, Weisz is savoring the chance to end his college career in March Madness. “It is a dream come true, you always dream about this as a kid,” said Weisz, a 6’4, 210-pound native of Florham Park, N.J. who now has 1,219 points in his time at Princeton “To have it cut short last year by a game and a few possessions, tears your heart out. It is so much sweeter this year, doing it in the fashion that we did.” Weisz knows the Tigers will have to show a lot of heart to come away with a win against Notre Dame, a program that plays in the powerful Atlantic Coast Conference and has made two straight trips to the NCAA quarterfinals. “They are an incredible team,” said Weisz. “We will watch a lot of video on them over the next few days. We are just looking to stick to our principles, stick to what has got us here. We are excited for the game.” Henderson, for his part, was excited to see his players leap to their feet and

holler in unison at a Selection Show party at Triumph Brewing Company last Sunday upon finding out that they would be playing Notre Dame. “Just watching them react, that is all matters,” said a smiling Henderson, with his voice raspy from the tense weekend at the Palestra. “They won it, they want to play good teams, and they want be relevant. They believe in themselves, that is all you can ask out of a group.” Princeton is clearly facing a talented group in the Fighting Irish.“Steve Vasturia is a senior; he is a local kid that we recruited,” said Henderson.
“He is a terrific player. They have Matt Farrell. In some ways, it is a similar looking team (to us). They are smart, they play together, they take care of the ball well. It will be a real challenge but we will get to work tonight and be ready to go.” In Henderson’s view, the Tigers feature a versatility that could pose a real challenge for Notre Dame. “What we have is what I think is useful in tournament, we make adjustments,” said Henderson, reflecting on a contest which will see the victor advance to a second round matchup against the winner of the game between fourth-seeded West Virginia
and 13th-seeded Bucknell. “We don’t play one specific way that they can figure out. I think that is useful in tournament games when circumstances take you one way and you have got to figure it out.” Weisz, for his part, believes that adaptability along with a special chemistry will make Princeton tough to beat in the tournament. “Everyone is willing to do whatever it takes to win,” said Weisz. “If guys get hurt or roles change, everyone is always in it to win at all costs. Everyone is encouraging everyone all the time. We really want what’s best for one another.” —Bill Alden

PU Men’s Hockey Falls to Union in ECACH Quarters, But Turnaround Season Bodes Well for Future Success It ended up being a microcosm of a turnaround season for the Princeton University men’s hockey team as it played at Union last weekend in the ECAC Hockey quarterfinals. With seventh-seeded Princeton having lost 4-1 in the first game of the best-of-three series against second-seeded and No. 6 Union on Friday, the Tigers found themselves trailing 2-0 to the powerful Dutchmen entering the second period a night later. Displaying its never-say-die mentality, the Tigers cut the lead in half with a second period power play goal by David Hallisey. In the third period, the Tigers forged ahead 3-2 on goals by Ryan Kuffner and Alex Riche, the latter tally coming with 1:10 left in regulation. Union, however, scored a goal with 21 seconds left in an extra attacker situation to force overtime and then won the game 4-3 when they converted a penalty shot early in the extra session to advance to the ECACH semis. While Princeton head coach Ron Fogarty rued the fact that his team came 30 seconds from forcing a third game, he is proud of his team’s breakthrough campaign that saw it end with a final record of 1516-3 after going a combined 15-72-6 in the past three seasons, including 5-23-3 in 2015-16. “We started off 0-6-1 and then battle back to have a 1510-2 season in that stretch, the guys were resilient all year,” said Fogarty. “They bought in and trusted
each other. It was a fun ride, there is no question about it.” In Fogarty’s view, the team’s biggest area of progress came in executing systems all over the ice. “We became more of a fiveman unit in how we moved up the rink,” explained Fogarty. “In the past couple of years we didn’t do that; our attack was only two guys. We didn’t have the defensemen rolling. We became a better five-man unit throughout the rink and that got better was the year went on. I am looking forward to seeing next year how can we evolve that and make it stronger in the neutral zone and just increase our scoring.” That multi-faceted attack paid dividends this winter. “We scored 103 goals this year compared to 60 last year,” noted Fogarty. “Our goal scoring is good, I like where it is at. It is a 180 from where we were at the first two years.” Fogarty tipped his hat to the character displayed by team’s seniors Hayden Anderson Tommy Davis, Ben Foster, Colton Phinney, Quin Pompi, Marlon Sabo, Ryan Siiro, and Garrett Skrbich in battling through the hard times. “They stayed with it; they won 15 games their first three years at Princeton and matched that in one year,” said Fogarty. “I know they were excited and happy to come to the rink. It is frustrating when we were 18 games under .500
and 19 games under .500 our first two years. To turn that around and be only one game under 500, that is a lot of wins so they enjoyed it.” With the team’s eight top scorers slated to return next year, Fogarty believes that there should be a lot more wins in the future for the Tigers. “We have a lot of players that were put in impact situations that will return,” said Fogarty, whose team was led in scoring by sophomores Kuffner (19 goals and 17 assists) and Max Veronneau (11 goals, 24 assists) with two other players, freshman Jackson Cressey (7 goals, 26 assists) and junior Hallisey (13 goals, 17 assists), also hitting the 30-point mark. “Losing Colton (star goalie Colton Phinney) will be the biggest void but we are confident that junior Ben Halford can step up and Austin Shaw, our freshman, can as well.” Having risen to seventh place from 12th place in the ECACH standings this season, Fogarty is hoping to see his team jump into the top four next season. “We definitely know that we can play with any team in the ECAC or the NCAA and our focus has to be to pinpoint our first game,” said Fogarty, whose team posted five wins over teams ranked in the Top 10 this season. “We can’t wait for the playoffs to ramp it up and we can’t wait for a 0-6-1 start to try to turn it around. It has to be from the get-go in terms of playing our style of game.” —Bill Alden

Last weekend, freshman forward Alarie starred for Princeton as it competed in the inaugural Ivy League Tournament. On Saturday, Alarie piled up 17 points and 16 rebounds as Princeton defeated Harvard 68-47 in a semifinal contest. A day later, Alarie had 11 points and 11 rebounds in a losing cause as Princeton fell 57-48 to host Penn in the title game.

displayed all three of those traits, jumping out to a 2516 halftime lead over the Crimson on the way to a 6847 triumph at the Palestra in Philadelphia. “We shared the ball really well,” said Princeton head coach Banghart in a video of her postgame press conference posted on the Princeton athletics website. “To go into a tournament game and know that your defense is locked down, you get to walk with ease. You don’t have to make shots. I have had some really good offensive teams and I wouldn’t put this group in that category yet but I knew what I was going to get. I knew it was going to be a real battle for Harvard to have to try to score against us.” Princeton junior forward Leslie Robinson and her teammates were certainly ready to battle the Crimson. “I think we just got a little bit of a gut check; we looked at each other and we said we are not losing to Harvard,” said Robinson, who had 15 points and 11 rebounds in the win. “We are going to t he championship. We worked together. We got stops on defense and that converted to our offense.” A day later in the championship game, the Tigers showed guts but couldn’t ove r c om e Pe n n, fa l l i n g 57- 4 8 to t h e Q u a ke r s, the league’s regular season champion. Robinson had nine points and three
rebounds in the loss and made the All-Tournament team along with freshman star Bella Alarie, who had 17 points and 16 rebounds in the win over Harvard and then contributed 11 points and 11 rebounds in the defeat to the Quakers. With Princeton, now 1613, finishing as the second place team in the Ivy League during the regular season, it
will receive the conference’s bid to the Women’s National Invitational (WNIT) Tournament. The WNIT bracket was slated to be released on Monday evening after the NCAA Selection Show announcements. Banghart, for her part, believes that her squad will keep fighting as it looks to extend its season for as long as possible.
“I have said all along, from the beginning of the year, that we were going to find out how far heart can take you,” said Banghart. “This team is gritty, they have a lot of heart. Those things are non-negotiable for this group. I am just really proud of them.” —Bill Alden

After Showing Grit in Making Ivy Tourney Final, Princeton Women’s Hoops Primed for WNIT Run
TOWN TOPICS, PRINCETON, N.J., WEDNESDAY, mARCh 15, 2017 • 24
After Helping U.S. Team Win U-19 World Crown, Sims Emerging as Shooting Star for PU Men’s Lax Austin Sims took his game to a higher level last summer, helping the U.S. team win the championship at the FIL (Federation of International Lacrosse) 2016 U-19 Men’s World Championships in British Columbia last July. For Princeton University midfielder Sims, who served as a co-captain of the U.S. squad, the experience made him more self-assured on the field. “I think it gave me conf i d e n c e k n ow i n g t h at I can play with some of the best players our age in the world,” said Sims, who had a goal and four assists in the competition. Sims is now proving to be one of the best players in college lacrosse, having been named the Epoch/US Lacrosse Player of the Week after scoring a career-high
six goals in an 18-7 win over then-No. 3 Johns Hopkins on March 3. “It is obviously an honor to be the player of the week and get all those accolades,” said Sims. “But I could not have done it without my teammates like Gavin McBride, Mike Sowers, Zach Currier and the guys like Mike Morean running between the lines and making defensive stops. It was nice getting my personal accolades but there are a lot of guys that didn’t get any accolades who also played very well.” It was nice for Princeton collectively to get the breakthrough victor y over the powerful Blue Jays. “A win against a storied program and a rival like Hopkins gives us a lot of confidence,” said Sims. “It showed us what our

potential could be going forward. It was definitely a confidence builder but we don’t want to rest on our laurels.” L ast week, t he Tigers weren’t quite as sharp as they struggled a bit before pulling out a 17-13 win over Quinnipiac. “It was definitely a slow start; it was a Tuesday game and that can definitely happen to you,” said Sims, reflecting on the March 7 contest. “I think it is a good thing that even though we didn’t play at our best today, we got the win. I think that is the mark of a good team; it is good that we were able to pay well enough to get the win.” After leading just 11-9 late in the third quarter, Princeton went on an 8-1 run to take control of the contest. “I think we got a couple of key defensive stops,” said Sims. “I know we let in a couple but being able to stop the runs and then come back on offense and get a quick goal and kill their runs, which was definitely huge. It was the leadership of our captains and the leadership of our seniors, keeping everyone calm and making sure that no one was freaking out.” Sims, for his part, produced another huge performance as he scored six goals for the second straight game. “It is teammates putting me in promising positions to score and I am just capitalizing on it,” said Sims, the 6’1, 185-pound native of Fairfield, Conn. who now has a team-high 14 goals this season. “Coach (Pat) March harps
on my shooting form and makes me practice it a lot so give him some credit too.” The experience of having played with Tiger freshman star Michael Sowers on the U.S. team has helped Sims getting in the right positions. “I think one of the big things that came out of the summer was my relationship with Mike Sowers,” said Sims. “A dynamic guy like that with vision is able to break down almost any defender. I was able to get a head start on a relationship with him over the summer, knowing that we are going be wearing the same jersey for the next two years.” Princeton head coach Matt Madalon likes the dynamic play he is get ting f rom Sims. “Austin has done a heck of a job,” said Madalon. “What he has done well is that he has put himself in positions to finish plays for us and when he has had opportunities, he has done so.” Madalon acknowledged that Princeton squandered some opportunities in the win over Quinnipiac. “It was not a good 60 minutes of lacrosse from us; we are happy to come out on top,” said Madalon. “That is not to take anything away from Quinnipiac, they did a great job. They have a very good offense, they are well prepared, and good at the face-off X. We just made a lot of mistakes and we are frustrated by that.” The Tigers were able to overcome their sloppy play down the stretch. “I think stick work and execution clicked for a couple of a minutes at a time and we were able to go on a couple of little runs,” said Madalon. While the Princeton defense had some lapses in ex-
SIMPLY AWESOME: Princeton University men’s lacrosse player Austin Sims heads to goal in a game earlier this season. Last week, junior midfielder Sims scored six goals to help Princeton defeat Quinnipiac 17-13. It was the second straight sixgoal effort for Sims, who had hit that mark in an 18-7 win over Johns Hopkins on March 3. The 16th-ranked Tigers, now 4-1, are next in action when they play at No. 5 Rutgers (6-0) on March 15. (Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) ecution against the Bobcats, Madalon likes the way that unit is coming together. “They have done a really good job, we had some different guys playing some different match ups,” said Madalon. “Quinnipiac does a heck of a job offensively and they made us pay a couple of times, I think Danny Winschuh did well; Nick Bauer is doing a nice job.” With the 16th-ranked Tigers slated to play at No. 5 Rutgers (6-0) on March 15, Madalon knows that his squad will need to do a really good job to come away with a victory over the Scarlet Knights. “We have a good week of practice ahead of us but I
like where we are at,” said Madalon “We are going to start as a staff preparing for them tonight. They have done an outstanding job, they are a heck of a program. We have played a one-goal game with them in the past handful of years. It is a rivalry and our guys will be ready.” In Sims’ view, Princeton is ready to keep building on its promising start. “I think the team is in a good place; we want to keep moving forward with every game,” said Sims “We have a tough game against Rutgers; they are a great team, great program, and a historic rival. It is going to be a good one.” —Bill Alden

PU Hockey’s Koelzer Signs with Riveters
Princeton Universit y women’s hockey star Kelsey Koelzer has signed with the New York Riveters of the National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL), inking a contract for the remainder of the season as the Riveters make a push for the Isobel Cup. The top pick in the 2016
NWHL draft, Koelzer is the first player to be signed to a contract this late in the NWHL season. “Being part of the NWHL was a priority for me because I want to take my development from four years at Princeton and utilize it playing with and against some of the best women’s hockey players in the world,” said Koelzer. “I am sad that my collegiate career has come to an end, but I was lucky to play alongside amazing players and coaches. I’m hoping to use that experience to contribute to the remainder of the Riveters’ season in any way I can.” A two-time Patty Kazmaier finalist, Koelzer, a 5’9 native of Horsham, Pa., is also a first-team All-American and has been named all-ECAC three consecutive season. The 2016 ECAC Best Defenseman of the Year, she was a finalist for the award again this season. T h e 2016 Iv y L e ag u e Player of the Year, Koelzer finished her collegiate career at Princeton earlier this month as the Tigers reached the ECAC Hockey semifinals for the first time since 2005-06. Play ing in 128 career games, Koelzer became just the third defender in Princeton history to reach 100 points, as she concludes her collegiate career with 39 goals and 61 assists. She had 203 career blocks
and finished with a +46 onice rating. This season she ranks second nationally in points per game for a defender, and did so last year as well, with 31 points in 33 games. The Riveters wrapped up regular season play last Sunday with a 3-2 win over Boston in Newark. The Riveters face the Buffalo Beauts in a league semifinal contest on March 17. The 2016-17 NWHL season concludes on March 19, when the Isobel Cup Final is played at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell ———

With Senior Star Blue Leading the Way, PHS Boys’ Hoops Made Solid Progress Although the Princeton High boys’ basketball team ended the winter by falling 63-41 to Marlboro in the first round of the Central Jersey Group 4 sectional, the squad produced a couple of memorable wins over the last 10 days of the season. PHS defeated crosstown rival Princeton Day School 53-47 in the opening round of the Mercer County Tournament on February 17 and pulled out a rousing 68-63 win over Hillsborough in its home finale six days later. For first-year head coach Pat Noone, those triumphs meant a lot to the pro gram.
“We won a playoff game in Mercer Count y and I think that is the first time they have won one in a pretty long time here,” said Noone. “When you play PDS in the playoffs, it is such a rivalry game. That game with Hillsborough was Senior Night, that was a great team win.” In Noone’s v iew, PHS made great strides as it | Business ended up with a final record of 12-14. “I thought getting double digit wins and getting up to 12 was pretty positive,” added Noone. “I think they had seven or eight wins last year so that
was a pretty good jump. To get that first playoff win was a good job.” The stellar play of senior superstar Zahrion Blue was the biggest positive of the Little Tigers this winter. “He was definitely legit; it was lucky for me that the best player was the most coachable,” said Noone of Blue who averaged 22.3 points perLaw game| this season Family Litigation and eclipsed the 1,000-point mark in his career along the way. “We formed a good relationship early on and had a good trust; that was the most impor tant t hing. I think there is so much more
untapped for him.” Noone was lucky to have eight other seniors joining Blue on the roster. “It is huge to have nine guys go through the program,” said Noone, whose Clas s of 2017 include d Andrew Goldsmith, Teddy Martilla, Spencer Zullo, Bo List, Cristo Silva, Alex Filion, Justin Marciano, and Sam Serxner. “I think the best thing, talking to them all, I think they leave proud to be playing. They are real proud | Personal of this year Injury and have respect for the basketball program. They are excited about things. You don’t want someone to leave and say whatever.” One of the best things about the season for Noone was the improvement he saw

across the board. “I think they just enjoyed being together and playing,” said Noone.“We made leaps and bounds; they all became better basketball players. I wish I had more time with this group. I think we would have made even more improvement. Fillion wasn’t playing much in his junior year and he came out here and had a pretty good year. Spencer Zullo was doing a lot of things that didn’t show up in the box score. You got some contributions from everybody.” In Noone’s view, the squad has a good foundation in place that should ensure continued improvement. “I like the group coming back, we have got a good group of guys with Jaylen Johnson, Isaac Webb, Tommy Doran, Mike Frost, and Sam Tarter,” said Noone. “We slowly brought up a sophomore in Brendan Rougas and a freshman, Riley McMahon. I think the first time they got in was against Steinert and since that time
we have been able to get them minutes. The fear is gone, they have seen it. That will be good because when we bring up more guys to the team next year, they will have a feeling of how the program is run and they can lean on them to get into things.” Having come to PHS after serving as the head coach at Lincoln High in Jersey City, Noone enjoyed his first year at the helm with the Little Tigers. “There was a lot of support; it was a really good experience,” said Noone. “Being here felt more like a true high school basketball setting. The town comes out, the families are there. It is the kids they all grow up with; the games are competitive. You get a lot of community. That is really the way high school athletics is supposed to be. That was a blast for me. It was very hard for me to leave my other job but they welcomed me in with open arms.” —Bill Alden

Coming into the winter, the St uar t Countr y Day S cho ol bas ke tba l l te a m looked to save its best for last, setting its sights on a state Prep B title and a deep run in the Mercer County Tournament. S o los i ng to event ua l champion Pennington in the Prep B finals and getting eliminated in the first round of the MCT on a buzzer beater in overtime wasn’t exactly the ending the team envisioned. Yet in reflecting on a season which saw the Tartans finish with an 18-10 record, Stuart head coach Justin Leith believes the positives far outweigh the negatives. “Two weeks out, it is, look, Stuart has a basketball program now,” said Leith. “We have a couple of eighth graders who are coming up next year that I have coached in the fall in AAU and they are really going to help us. We are returning everyone except for one senior. It is an exciting time. The season didn’t go perfect, meaning that we didn’t win the Prep B or get to the semifinals of the MCT but at the end of the day but we still had a strong season. You always want better and you want to win it all.” Even though Stuart came out on the short end of an exciting game in its MCT opener as it fell to Nottingham 46 - 45 in over time, Leith had no qualms with the effort he got from his players. “They ran a play and they scored and they won,” recalled Leith. “There was a hand in the face, the girl hit a tough shot. We didn’t make any mistakes in that moment. The girl hit a big shot and good for her. There w as n o d i s app oi nt m e nt there, the team fought hard the whole game. We were up and we were down. It was a good game. There was no frustration.” The Tartans boast a tough 1-2 punch in junior guard Jalynn Spaulding and sophomore forward Bey-Shana Clark. “Jalynn is certainly a threat from the outside; she is really athletic and can shoot the ball well,” said Leith.
“Bey Shana has gotten better and she is going to have to. I know she wants to play on the next level and with her size, she is going to have to be able to face the basket and shoot the basketball, dribble the ball up the floor. She can do all of those things. Both of them averaged around 15 points. You can’t say that about a lot of teams. Sometimes teams just have one player that can score and there are a bunch of players near five points. We we have two kids that at any point, you can give you 20 plus points in any game. They are great to have.” Freshman point guard Jasmine Hansford showed great progress this winter for the Tartans. “Jasmine got better and better, she was frustrated at times because she was only a freshman and had those growing pains,” said Leith. “I am really excited to have her back next year. I am sure she will grow in leaps and bounds. She is going to play spring, and summer and in the fall again. She will definitely be a huge contributor next year.” Stuart also got key contributions from junior captain Madeleine Michaels and junior transfer Marissa Lewis. “Maddie was an exemplary captain and has been a defensive leader the last two years,” said Leith. “Marissa was on fire defensively and she helped us in so many ways. I didn’t expect it coming into the season, she was a pleasant surprise. She is a tough kid and great kid.” Going forward, Leith is expecting the program to experience more and more success. “I think the focus in the offseason is to get better,” said Leith. “We will play in the summer league together; we will go to a team camp. We will make sure that everyone is on the same page. Luckily, we are returning so many people so we don’t have to rebuild.

from their travels with her husband Al during his musical tours with Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli, Pablo Casals, Philip Glass, the New York City Ballet, and the Composers Conference. Joanne and her family spent many wonderful vacations together. During the summer, visits to Long Beach Island and Atlantic City took place. Summer vacations were also spent in the Barre/Montpelier area of Vermont with her extended family. Joanne and her family cruised the Caribbean several times and for her 75th birthday, her family surprised her with a week-long trip to Orlando to celebrate at Sea World and Disneyworld. Joanne was a loving, kind and compassionate individual. She will be remembered for her creativity and generosity and her spirit will live on in her children and grandchildren. She would often say she would go to the ends of the earth for her family and she loved them to the moon and back. Funeral Service was held at 5 p.m. on Saturday, March 11th 2017, at MJ Murphy Funeral Home, 616 Ridge Road, Monmouth Junction. Friends may call from 2 p.m. until the time of the service at the funeral home. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Juilliard Scholarship Fund in memory of Joanne Richmond, The Juilliard School of Music, Office of Development and Public Affairs, 60 Lincoln Center Plaza, New York, NY 10023.
Joanne leaves behind five beautiful grandchildren including Christopher Beschner (18), Caroline Beschner (15), Sean Richmond (14), Scott Richmond (12), and Alexis Beschner (12), as well as her furry grandchildren Bailey and Henry. Joanne’s family was the single most important thing in her life and she always put others needs ahead of her own. She treasured her children and grandchildren and was immensely proud of them. As a classically trained pianist, she shared her love of music with them and often frequented their school concerts, shows, and recitals. Joanne could also be found cheering for her grandchildren at the baseball fields, hockey arena, basketball court, softball fields, football games (marching band and cheerleading) and other school related events. She was their biggest supporter. Joanne was an avid tennis fan and followed the pro circuit on television and enjoyed watching her son Fred and her grandchildren on the courts. She was the consummate homemaker and loved to cook and bake, especially during the Christmas holidays. Joanne also wrote the most wonderful notes. Every card she sent did not just contain the obligatory salutation and signature. She personalized each card with an often lengthy, wellthought out, newsy letter. And no Christmas holiday would be complete without Joanne playing traditional Christmas carols while her family sang joyfully around the piano. Joanne and her family have wonderful memories

After a long illness, cardiologist Dr. John Frederick Hagaman, MD died at his home in Princeton on March 6, 2017, at the age of 69. The cause of death was due to complications from a degenerative brain disease. Born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania on December 15, 1947, he was the only child of Frederick Homer Hagaman and Virginia Gerding. He grew up in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania and graduated from the Episcopal Academy in Merion in 1966. From there he went on to earn a BS degree from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, and an MD degree from Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons. He met his future wife, Andrea T. Hyde, while an undergraduate and they were married in Newtown, Connecticut, on May 25, 1974. Further training took John to Ann Arbor, Michigan, where he completed his residency in internal medicine at the University of Michigan. Moving back east, he spent a year working as an emergency room physician at the Danbury Hospital in Danbury, Connecticut, before moving south, where he completed a fellowship in noninvasive cardiology at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. In 1980 John came to Princeton, where he joined the medical practice of William F. Haynes, MD. Their partnership marked the beginning of Cardiology Associates of Princeton which in later years grew to include add it ional par t ners. He loved the practice of medicine and over the ensuing 32 years, his practice grew and he gained a reputation for his skills as a diagnostician, attentive listener, and compassionate healer with a deep seated interest in his patients, not just as cases, but as people with a wide range of interests and backgrounds. He also delighted in his professional relationships with medical colleagues and in teaching medical students rotating through the University Hospital of Princeton. The hallmarks of John’s temperament were his boundless enthusiasm, energy, and cheerfulness. He embraced not only medicine but many other interests as well. He loved music; playing the guitar and banjo and singing in a cappella groups in school and college, in student produced musicals in medical school and, later in life, with the barbershop chor us, The Brothers in Harmony.

Lindsey Christiansen This is it, chaps. Take me home./I believe, my son, I am going. That’s it./Goodbye — drive on. Cut her loose, Doc. I’m going, I’m going. At a gallop!/Clear the way. Good-bye. God bless you!/ Good-bye, everybody. A general good-night. The words of Annie Dillard’s poem Deathbeds, set to music by James Primosch, were the last words sung at the 2017 Westminster Art Song Festival at Westminster Choir College on February 25, 2017. Four days later, on March 1, 2017, Ash Wednesday, Lindsey Christiansen, a long-time leader of the Festival and one of Art Song’s most ardent performers and teachers, died peacefully at home after a five-month journey with brain cancer at the age of 70. Just weeks before she knew she was sick, Lindsey collaborated with her colleague, pianist J. J. Penna, to plan a program of American song literature for the Festival that wed music to some of her favorite poems with spiritual themes: Jane Kenyon’s Otherwise and Briefly It Enters, and Briefly It Speaks, Denise Levertov’s “… That Passeth All Understanding.” For those at the Westminster Art Song Festival who knew her, the songs spoke of her living and her dying. Lindsey Christiansen was professor of voice at Westminster Choir College of Rider University for 40 years, from 1977 to 2017, and chair of the voice and piano department for 18 years. She specialized in German lieder and was a life-long student and lover of the music of Franz Schubert. She was an exceptional voice teacher and a demanding professor of song literature classes, where she instilled in countless students a love for song. She taught thousands of young singers over her more than 45-year teaching career to find their voice, believe in their potential and flourish as musicians, teachers, performers and human beings. Her example has shaped a generation of voice teachers who
are now inspiring the lives and voices of their students, Professor Christiansen’s musical grandchildren. In the words of Matthew Shaftel, dean of Westminster Choir College, and Margaret Cusack, chair of the piano and voice department: “With an unrelenting commitment to musical excellence, intellectual rigor and the personal and musical growth of her students she enriched our community in countless ways …. She has been a fierce champion of students in ever y aspect of their education, both in nurturing and encouraging those with difficulties, and insisting upon and maintaining the high standards that she and the art of singing demand.” Born Alice Lindsey Peters on October 3, 1946 in Roanoke, Va. to Alice and Howard Peters, she was the eldest of four children. As a young girl, she played piano and sang in churches served by her father, a Methodist minister in Virginia. It was these early experiences of music in the church that led her to devote her life to the study, teaching and making of music. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Richmond, and completed her master’s degree in voice and organ from the University of Illinois. She then taught as a part of the voice faculty at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and studied at the Hochschulle für Musik in Hamburg, Germany for a year as a part of an International Rotary Foundation Fellowship. She was twice an artist-in-residence for voice study at the Franz-Schubert-Institut in Baden bei Wien, Austria. She met her husband, Knud Christiansen, in 1975 during the year she was in Germany. They were married the next year in Williamsburg, Va., and then moved to Princeton, where they raised their two children, Molly and Andreas. A voracious reader of theology, from Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s Ethics to Richard Rohr’s Falling Upward, she was an elder at Nassau Presbyterian Church and, in her last year, a member of the choir at Trinity Episcopal Church. As her own grandmother had been a guiding light throughout her life, so she became an extraordinary grandmother to her three granddaughters, singing regularly to Maya, Anna, and Hazel. Lindsey Christiansen was a brilliant teacher and extraordinary musician, but she will be most remembered for her infectious energy, grace, strength, intellect, wit, joy for life, and generosity. Her strong, loving, vibrant spirit will continue to resound for years and years to come in the lives of those she taught and the lives of those she touched. In addition to her husband, children and grandchildren, she is also survived by her brother John Peters, her sisters Mary Lee Peters and Liza Peters, her son-inlaw John Gearen, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. A memorial service in celebration of Lindsey Christiansen’s life will be held at Nassau Presbyterian Church in Princeton, New Jersey, on Saturday, March 25th at 11 a.m.
To honor her life and legacy, memorial contributions can be made to the Lindsey Christiansen Art Song Festival Endowed Fund, which has been established in her honor to sustain the study and performance of art song at Westminster Choir College of Rider University. Contributions may be made online at https:// alumni.rider.edu/artsongfestival or sent to Westminster Choir College of Rider University, Attn: Art Song Festival, 101 Walnut Lane, Princeton NJ 08540.

Florence L. Dawes Florence L. Dawes, 94, of Princeton passed away on March 7, 2017 at Merwick Care and Rehabilitation Center. She was born in Princeton and spent most of her life there until she moved to Florida when she was 85. She was a graduate of Princeton High School and attended Blackstone College in Virginia, majoring in journalism. In the late 1940s, Florence established Woodcroft Nursery School and Summer Day Camp, which she owned and operated for 15 years. In the early 1960s, she began selling real estate, working part time with George Sands soon after he established Hilton Realty. T he 1980s were F lorence’s peak years selling real estate. She joined John T. Henderson Inc. Realtors, and in 1983 she won the Relocation Prize. In 1986, she sold over $10,000,000 of real estate, which broke the 30-year record for sales at Henderson Realtors. She later was associated for many years with N. T. Callaway Real Estate until she turned 80 and retired. For many years, Florence was a volunteer at the Hospital Aide Shop at Princeton Hospital, where her chocolate milkshakes were legendary. She also was a past member of the Present Day Club. Florence’s pride and joy over the years were the standard poodles she cherished. The last one died in 2016 shortly before she returned to Princeton. Florence was predeceased by two sons, John Coffee and Janney Dawes and her sister Marjorie Weiland. She is survived by two children, Joseph Coffee (and his wife Laurie) and Colleen Hall
Edward L. (Ted) Levine of Skillman, died on February 25, at the age of 89. He was predeceased by Rosalie, his wife of 62 years. He is survived by his three brothers and their familie; his children Carol Lovseth (Tim) of Denver, Colo.; his sons, Alex (Joyce) and Jim (Lisa), of Princeton; seven adoring grandchildren, Matt, John, Nathalie, Zeke, Jade, Freddie, and Elijah; five great-grandchildren; and friends and relatives around the country. Ted was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, served in the Army Air Corps, and received his BS and law degrees from the University of Wisconsin. He practiced law with one firm in New York for 41 years, helping to build and lead Cole and Deitz, which became the New York Office of Winston and Strawn. He was one of the city’s ablest and most knowledgeable banking attorneys, and worked frequently with government agencies in addition to representing his clients. A career capstone came in 1980, when he was tapped by the U.N. to create the private banking system of the soon-to-be-independent Federated States of Micronesia. Upon moving to Princeton in 2001, he became a regular at 55 Plus, McCarter Theatre, Richardson Auditorium, and in the classrooms of Princeton University, auditing a variety of classes with great curiosity. In 2012, he and Rosalie moved to Stonebridge at Montgomery, where he became an active member of the community and made many new friends. Ted will be remembered for his sense of humor, his fierce sense of justice and of right and wrong, his generosity, and his love for his family, which misses him greatly and will hold him in our hearts forever. May his memory be a blessing.

And, throughout all his years in Princeton, he and his family were devoted members of Trinity Church. John is survived by his wife of 42 years, Andrea T. Hyde; his sons Charles and William Hagaman and William’s wife, Ursula Bailey. A memorial service celebrating his life will be held at Trinity Church, 33 Mercer Street, Princeton, NJ 08540 on Saturday, March 18 at 1 p.m, to be followed by a reception. Those wishing to make memorial contributions in John’s name are encouraged to donate to either Trinity Church, or to the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer’s disease and the Aging Brain, Columbia University Medical Center, ATTN: Matt Reals, 516 West 168th Street, 3rd floor, New York, NY 10032. The email contact is mr3134@cumc. columbia.edu. Arrangements are under the direction of The MatherHodge Funeral Home, Princeton.

GET RID OF PET ODORS BEFORE YOU LIST We all love our pets, but their odors? Not so much. And that goes double if you’re a potential home buyer. If you have pets, here’s how to make sure lingering odors don’t interfere with your home sale: • Open the windows and bring in some fresh air. Better circulation can do wonders for getting rid of all kinds of stale and musty smells, as well as pet odors. • Do a thorough cleaning of the walls, floors and trim with cleaners designed to neutralize pet odors. Have carpets, drapes and upholstery cleaned too. • Carpets badly stained or embedded with odors that just won’t be cleaned away? It may be time to invest in some new carpets and padding. Thoroughly wash floors before installation. • Seal and paint walls. Not only will it help get rid of any lingering odors, it also makes the whole house look fresher and better cared for. • Be proactive. Scoop cat litter and vacuum up hair on a daily basis. Keep the area around pet dishes clean, and if you can, take your pets for a drive while your home is being shown, or at least confine them to a room or pet crate during showings. Not sure if your home has pet odors? Ask your agent to do a sniff test. Sometimes all it takes is a "fresh nose" to give you a new perspective.
