Angela Siso Stentz Named New PHS Assistant Principal Angela Siso Stentz, Princeton Public Schools (PPS) supervisor of guidance for K-12, has been appointed assistant principal at Princeton High School (PHS). She will replace Lori Lotz, who will be retiring from that position on July 1. In the district since 2000, first as a special education teacher in math and Spanish and for the past ten years in guidance, Ms. Siso Stentz looks forward to using her experience and knowledge and the relationships she’s developed across the district to help in her work with students in the high school. “I’ve had an opportunity to see the district perspective,” she said, “and that knowledge and awareness, knowing where the students are coming from, will help me fill in gaps and work with students, parents, colleagues, and others.” Ms. Siso Stentz, who was supervisor of student activities at PHS, is particularly eager to focus more directly on working with students in her new role, both inside and outside the classroom. “I’m looking forward to enjoying myself in working more closely with students and their families,” she said. “As guidance director I worked district-wide, focusing on programs and staff, sometimes not engaging with students that much. I’m looking forward to helping students with the challenges in their lives and celebrating their accomplishments. I’m especially interested in getting involved in extra-curricular activities and athletics.” Ms. Siso Stentz also noted that, as assistant principal, “I’ll be shifting the way I collaborate with teachers and staff. I’ll be more of a support for their work in the classroom. I’m energized about the fact that I will be collaborating with them in that capacity.” Currently a doctoral candidate in educational leadership and a member of the PHS leadership team, Ms. Siso Stentz has a bachelor’s degree in science and Spanish and a master’s degree in education. “I know Angela will bring to her new position the same passion, care, and common sense that she has demonstrated in such abundance as our supervisor of guidance,” said PPS Superintendent Steve Cochrane. Ms. Siso Stentz enthusiastically embraces the district’s recent emphasis on Continued on Page 10

March for Science to Highlight Education, Community
Along with some 500 cities and towns across America, Princeton will hold a March for Science this Saturday — Earth Day — in solidarity with the March for Science taking place in Washington. D.C. The local event, which begins at Hinds Plaza at 10 a.m., will focus on education and community, with an hour of speakers and science-related activities preceding a march to the Princeton Battle Monument. “We’ll salute the bust of Einstein on the way,” said Princeton resident Nicole Pezold-Hancock, who got the idea for the local march soon after the inauguration of President Donald Trump. “I’m not a scientist, but I’m a science supporter,” she continued. “When it became clear that there was going to be a very different approach to climate science, and just a general lack of interest or dismissiveness
about scientific research, I started to get concerned.” Ms. Pezold-Hancock, who comes from a family of scientists and physicians, began talking with friends about holding a local march. “I live in a place where science is a huge part of our economy, not just with Princeton University but with the major laboratories located here,” she said. “When I heard this rumbling about having a march in Washington in support of robust funding for science and free communication of scientific ideas, I thought, my God, Princeton has to have its own march.” Her idea snowballed. As of this Monday, 800 people were registered to attend the local event. About 1,000 are expected, weather permitting, Ms. Pezold-Hancock said. The rally at Hinds Plaza will include speakers Robert Goldston, a professor of
astrophysical sciences at Princeton University; and Samuel Wang, a professor of molecular biology and neuroscience, also at the University. Kevin Wilkes, local architect and activist, is master of ceremonies. Science activities will be led by the Princeton Family YMCA, enrichment program scienceSeeds, C.H.A.O.S. Lab of the University’s School of Architecture, the University’s Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment, and others. “Kids can make ‘gooey garbage,’ which is very hands-on,” Ms. Pezold-Hancock said. “And the C.H.A.O.S. Lab will do a bike-powered blender making smoothies. There will be an Ask-the-Scientist Table where people can find about science careers. So it’s almost like a science festival for the first hour.” Continued on Page 8
Arbor Day Celebrations Teach Children to Care For “Community Forest”
SPRING ON THE GREEN: There are many places to enjoy Princeton in the spring, including Cannon Green behind Nassau Hall at Princeton University. A variety of responses to favorite things about spring in Princeton can be found in this week’s Town Talk. (Photo by Charles R. Plohn)
Third graders from all five of Princeton’s elementary schools are spending some time outdoors this week and next. They are learning what it takes to plant a tree and — more importantly — keep it healthy. It’s all part of the annual commemoration of Arbor Day, which is officially April 28. Saving trees is a particularly relevant issue in Princeton, where emerald ash borer beetles have been destroying ash trees across the area. The Princeton school events began Tuesday morning at Princeton Charter School and will wind up Friday, April 28 at Johnson Park School. Focusing on the young is the key to ensuring the future of Princeton’s “community forest,” said Lorraine Konopka, the town’s arborist. Ms. Konopka, Mayor Liz Lempert, members of Princeton Council and the Shade Tree Commission are among those who will be on hand to help children plant Cercis candensis trees, better known as eastern redbud, on the grounds of each school. “We want to introduce children to the idea of taking care of our earth where we live,” Ms. Konopka said. “Kids have to realize that trees need to be cared for, that you have to water them and replant them.” Each child will be given a small Norway spruce seedling to take home and plant.

The Civil Rights Movement Through the Lens of Julius Lester Panel Discussion and Reception Artist: Julius Lester, professor emeritus at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, has long focused on nurturing how people see themselves and others. A civil rights activist and author of numerous award-winning books for adults and children, his photographs are at the Smithsonian and at Howard University.
Public Works department will be on hand to demonstrate the bucket truck (“always a big hit,” Ms. Konopka said), and what they do to care for trees. With existing eastern redbuds just blooming now, the children will be able to get a look at what the trees they plant will look like if given proper care. The American celebration of Arbor Day dates from 1872, when J. Sterling Morton introduced the concept to the United States and planted an estimated one million trees in Nebraska, according to the National Arbor Day Foundation. By 1920, more than 45 states and territorial possessions were celebrating Arbor Day. It is marked today in all 50 states. The schedule of plantings is as follows: Thursday, April 20, 11:15 a.m. at Littlebrook School with Councilman Tim Quinn as guest; Monday, April 24, 10 a.m. at Riverside School with Mayor Lempert, Mr. Quinn, and Councilwoman Heather Howard as guests; Thursday, April 27 at 10:15 a.m. at Community Park School with Ms. Lempert as guest; and Friday, April 28, 9:30 a.m. at Johnson Park School with Mr. Quinn and Councilwoman Jo Butler as guests. Ms. Konopka is hoping to impress upon the youngsters at each school that the plantings need year-round care. She will encourage them to come and water the trees they have planted during the summer vacation. “It’s about what we have to do to take care of our community forest, which is what we live in — we don’t live in the woods,” she said. “The message is that it doesn’t take a whole lot. But you have to be aware.” —Anne Levin
Exhibit: April 14 – May 18 in the Bernstein Gallery Panel Discussion: April 20 at 4:30 PM in Bowl 016; reception to follow Julius Lester photographed the black South and portions of the civil rights movement from 1964-68, when he was a leader of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. This exhibition draws from his poignant urban and rural images and features portraits of young civil rights workers of that era, both known and unknown.

MUSIC AND HISTORY: Joe Miller, Choral Director at Westminster Choir College, is the conductor of this weekend’s performances of “Anthracite Fields” at Trenton’s Roebling Wireworks. Mr. Miller spent two years working to bring the Pulitzer-winning oratorio by Julia Wolfe to the Wireworks, where he is pictured.

where workers made wire rope for the Brooklyn Bridge is a fitting showcase for Anthracite Fields, a multifaceted collaboration for chorus and chamber group that marks the project’s first initiative. Composer Julia Wolfe won a Pulitzer Prize for the oratorio, which addresses issues of labor and industry in the coal mines of northeastern Pennsylvania around the turn of the 20th century. It is being performed Friday and Saturday, April 21 and 22, at the Wireworks, a location familiar to the hordes who attend Trenton’s Art All Night festival there each June.

great effect on the audience. I came to know Julia’s music through that.” Westminster’s Transforming Space project is designed not only to bring music into non-traditional venues, but also to attract viewers of different backgrounds. “We want to intersect with new audiences, people who might not otherwise come to this kind of performance,” said Mr. Miller. “We want to reach people from downtown Trenton, the Trenton Public Schools, and the hipster art community that hangs around the city.” The project has dominated Mr. Miller’s life for the past two years. “It’s my baby,” Continued on Next Page

The site makes sense for Anthracite Fields not only because of the Wireworks’ soaring dimensions, but because of the building’s history. “I’ve learned that there is a great connection between the Wireworks and Trenton and anthracite coal,” said Joe Miller, director of choral activities at Westminster out new produCts by and theCheCk conductor of Westminster Choir. “That coal had the kind of power necessary to turn the machines that made the wire, as well as the machines that made pottery, which was a big industry in Trenton.” Anthracite Fields was originally commissioned by The Mendelssohn Club of Philadelphia. It uses video projections as well as music to weave together personal inter views the composer conducted with miners and their families, as well as oral histories, speeches, and more. The six-member musical group Bang on a Can All-Stars joins the choir for the production, which was staged by choreographer and opera director Doug Varone. Ms. Wolfe won a Pulitzer for the oratorio in www.princetonmagazinestore.com 2015, and was a recipient OUT-OF-SEASON BONUS SHOP HOURS of a prestigious MacArthur Genius Grant a year later.

he said. “I am the music director for the project, and I put all of the moving parts together. You’re creating a concert hall venue in places it normally would not be, and that takes a lot of work and resources.

The public has used the Internet to empower bargain shopping in many different areas, but one realm particularly resistant to transparency and equity is the funeral industry, according to Josh Slocum, nationally-known consumer advocate and expert on funeral issues. In a talk on “Bringing the Funeral Industry into the 21st Century” at Princeton Abbey on Sunday, April 23 at 2 p.m., Mr. Slocum will advise audience members on how to protect themselves from paying too much for a funeral. He will also describe his plans to bring transparency and fairness to the funeral business. Executive director of the Funeral Consumers Alliance (FCA) and co-author of Final Rights: Reclaiming the American Way of Death (“the book that the funeral industry doesn’t want you to read”), Mr. Slocum has been working with the FCA to persuade funeral homes to post their prices and services online and has petitioned the Federal Trade Commission to require funeral service providers to include prices on their websites. “That alone would do more for funeral shopping for the consumer than anything else we could do,” he said.
“Consumers’ fear of death and of ‘seeming cheap’ by shopping around allows the funeral business to completely avoid the normal consumer feedback t hat moderates prices in other service sectors,” he added. Mr. Slocum went on to emphasize the disparities in funeral industry pricing and the importance of creating opportunities for price compar isons. “T he ver y same simple cremation, for example, can cost you less than $1,000 at one funeral home, and $3,000 or more at another, often within the same geographical service area,” he said. Comparing funeral shopping to more everyday transactions, Mr. Slocum noted, “It would be like shopping for an iPhone and finding one dealer charging $300 for the model, while another charged $1,200 for the same model. Or a car, say a Honda Civic, had a sticker price of $24,000 at Dealership A, but $72,000 at Dealership B. That’s how extraordinary price differences are in funeral homes. We would never accept this in any other marketplace that was truly competitive.” Over the past two years, the FCA has conducted three nationwide funeral home

price surveys, each revealing a wide range in prices, often for identical services, offered by funeral homes. A recent survey organized by the FCA of Princeton (FCAP) compared prices and services of 482 New Jersey funeral homes and reviewed their transparency and compliance with federal law. More than 30 percent of the 701 N.J. funeral homes refused to divulge their prices on the phone or by email. Noting a “tendency toward secrecy,” a FCAP press release stated, “Traditionally, funeral homes are known to be reluctant to divulge prices until the customer is sitting in the funeral parlor’s inner office, captive to the hard-sell pitch of a seasoned funeral director.” The survey also revealed a wide range of costs for the same services. A package called “direct cremation,” for example, varies in cost in New Jersey from $550 to $5,065 depending on the funeral home, even though the services are identical. Prices at Princeton’s two funeral homes, according to FCAP, are both in the mid-range, $2,670 ($1,300 member dis cou nt pr ice ) at Kimble Funeral Home on Hamilton Avenue and $3,190 at Mather-Hodge on Vandeventer Avenue. The prices were available by phone, not online, from the funeral homes or through FCA at fcaprinceton.org. The cost of a range of other services — alternative containers, graveside services, refrigeration, transportation, caskets — also varied dramatically at different funeral homes across the state, according to the survey conducted during the fall of 2016. To obtain prices volunteers first checked the websites, then sent emails and made phone calls to obtain information. Even after seven attempts to contact each funeral home, more than 30 percent never responded with the requested information. Warning of “family and friends vulnerable to choosi ng a nd over pay i ng for
ser vices they don’t want or need,” the FCAP urges con s u m er s to pla n a n d shop, but not prepay for a funeral until necessary. The not-for-profit, all-volunteer educational organization encourages consumers to make informed, thoughtful decisions about funerals and memorial arrangements before the need arises. Mr. Slocum’s talk will be part of the Annual Conference of the FCAP and will be preceded at 1 p.m. by a free tour of the Princeton Abbey, part of the old St. Joseph’s Seminary, at 75 Mapleton Road. —Donald Gilpin

March for Science continued from page one
Concurrently, a march in Trenton will begin outside the city’s War Memorial at 10 a.m. Among the speakers are Matthew Buckley, Rutgers University assistant physics professor and founder of the New Jersey March for Science; Kimberly CookChennault, Rutgers associate professor of mechanical
and aerospace engineering; former New Jersey Governor James Florio; Jeff Tittel, director of the New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club; Assemblyman and physicist Andrew Zwicker; and several others. The Princeton event is headed by the Science and Environment Committee of Princeton Marching Forward, a local activist group
that was formed following the women’s marches that took place all over the globe this past January. “Our focus in Princeton is a little bit different than in Trenton. We didn’t want to steal their thunder,” said Ms. Pezold-Hancock. “Theirs is more of a political rally. Ours is more communityoriented, with an education focus.”
Participants in the Princeton march are encouraged to bring signs that highlight the importance of science in protecting health, safety, and the environment, as well as funding for research. Children can submit their signs in a contest for prizes. “It is an inherently political act for us to gather and march together, but we are striving to keep it non-par-
tisan and positive,” said Ms. Pezold-Hancock. “The focus is on supporting science education. It is for something, not against something.” —Anne Levin

Thanks to Library’s Conlon and Dorman For Organizing Environmental Film Festival
To the Editor: As Earth Day approaches on April 22, it seems fitting to express our appreciation to the Princeton Public Library and to Susan Conlon and Kim Dorman for their exceptional efforts and heartfelt dedication to organizing the Princeton Environmental Film Festival earlier this month. The event spanned one week of films, speakers, panel discussions, and Skype interviews on topics ranging from whales and solar power to “inconvenient truths” about plastic-filled oceans and dying coral reefs. At a time when environmental progress in this country may be more threatened than ever, we greatly appreciate this 11th annual festival that brings us together as a community of citizens who are concerned about the environment.

Mailbox Letters Do Not Necessarily Reflect the Views of Town Topics
homework is a step toward more equitable educational opportunity, in addition to being a much-needed mental health initiative. Parents may be concerned that the current system is needed to propel their students toward acceptance at elite colleges, but academically-motivated students now have myriad resources available to prepare themselves for high-stakes tests. An oppressive homework load is neither an appropriate nor an effective way to do it. Bold leadership is needed to put the brakes on our academic arms race. We need school administrators to act quickly to make long overdue changes to the school schedule and the school culture. in Princeton, we don’t need to keep up with the Joneses — we are the Joneses — and we have a responsibility to make it possible for all of our kids to reach their full potential.

Amy Goodman Talking About “Democracy Now”
Holocaust Journey Discussed dre. Two months later, the At Labyrinth Next Week boy was killed in Auschwitz.
Princeton resident Victor Ripp will be at Labyrinth Books Tuesday, April 25 at 6 p.m. to read from his book Hell’s Traces: One Murder, Two Families, Thirty-Five Holocaust Memorials. (Farrar Straus and Giroux $25), which has been described by André Aciman as “vast and deep in its fiercely unsentimental consideration of how we remember the Holocaust.” In July 1942, the French police in Paris, acting for the German military government, arrested Victor Ripp’s 3-year-old cousin, Alexan-
Mr. Ripp examines this act through the prism of family history. In addition to Alexandre, ten members of his family on his father’s side died in the Holocaust. His mother’s side of the family, numbering 30 people, was in Berlin when Hitler came to power. Without exception they escaped the Final Solution. According to Anna Bikont, author of The Crime and the Silence, winner of the National Jewish Book Award, “The Axis of Exile and the Axis of the Holocaust—the two axes that define the
Amy Goodman, the author of Democracy Now! Covering the Movements Changing America (Simon & Schuster $16) will give a talk on Sunday, April 23 from 5 to 7 p.m. on the threats to journalism and a free press, and the role of independent media in reporting on movements for social change. Presented by The Wilson College Signature Lecture Series, Labyrinth Books, The Princeton Public Library, and Princeton University’s Council of the Humanities and Ferris Seminars in Journalism, the talk will take place at Labyrinth Books and is free and open to the public, although tickets (two per person) are required and can be picked up at Labyrinth Books during store hours. The talk will be followed by a signing of the just-released paperback version of the book. Ms. Goodman will be joined at the signing by one of her coauthors, Denis Moynihan of Democracy Now! In 1996 Amy Goodman began hosting a show on Pacifica Radio called Democracy Now!, which broadcasts on over 1,400 public television and radio stations around the world, with millions accessing it online at DemocracyNow.org. In their new book, Ms. Goodman, along with her journalist brother, David and co-author Denis Moynihan, share stories of the heroes — the whistleblowers, the organizers, the protesters — who have brought about change. The host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, Ms. Goodman has won the Right Livelihood Award, widely known as the Alternative Nobel Prize; a lifetime achievement award f rom Har vard ’s Niema n Foundation for Journalism; the George Polk Award ; Robert F. Kennedy Prize for International Reporting; and the Alfred I. duPontColumbia Award.

Gooch and Muldoon Converse on Rumi
Brad G ooch, t he New York Times bestselling author of Smash Cut, Flannery, and City Poet, will talk about his biography Rumi’s Secret: The Life of the Sufi Poet of Love (Harper $28.99) with Pulitzer Prize winning poet Paul Muldoon at Labyrinth Books on Wednesday, April 26, at 6 p.m. According to The New York Times Book Review, “Gooch’s biography brings the political and intellectual tumult of the early medieval era to life, producing vivid characters out of the reigning Seljuk sultans and memorable portraits of urban experience.” A Persian poet and Sufi mystic born over eight centuries ago, Rumi has been compared to Shakespeare for his outpouring of creativity and to Saint Francis of Assisi for his spiritual wisdom. Yet his life has long remained the stuff of legend rather than intimate knowledge. Brad Gooch is the author of t he biographies City Poet and Flannery: A Life of Flannery OConnor, as well as other nonfiction and three novels. The recipient of the National Endowment for t he Hu manit ies and Guggenheim fellowships, he is professor of English at William Paterson University. Paul Muldoon is the author of 13 books of poetry, most recently Selected Poems: 1968-2014. He is the poetry editor for The New Yorker and teaches Creative Writing at Princeton University. ———
Archaeology of Design Subject of Conversation
B e at r i z C olom i na a nd Mark Wigley will be at Labyrinth Books on Thursday, April 20 at 6 p.m. to discuss their book Are We Human? Notes on an Archaeology of Design (Lars Muller, $20). T h e c o - a u t h or s’ f i e l d notes “offer an archaeology of the way design has gone viral and is now bigger than the world. They range across the last few hundred thousand years and the last few seconds to scrutinize the uniquely plastic relation between brain and artifact. A vivid portrait emerges. Design is what makes the human. It becomes the way humans ask questions and thereby continuously redesign themselves.” Ms. Colomina is an architecture theorist, curator, and professor at the Princeton University School for Architecture. Some of her research focuses on sexual fantasies in association with architecture. Mr. Wigley is professor of architecture and Dean Emeritus of Columbia University’s GSAPP.

wellness and balance for its students amidst increasing college admissions and career pressures. “That’s an area I’m ver y passionate about,” she said. “I’m looking forward to working on encouraging our students to focus on balance and wellness, to help them be sustaining citizens of the world.” She added, “We are looking at ways to capitalize on optimal wellness for all. It’s the crux of who we are as individuals.” Ms. Siso Stentz went on to describe changes and challenges that she has observed during her years at PHS. “There are more challenges in a young person’s life than there were 17 years ago,” she said. “Students set very high goals for themselves and with that comes a lot of stress. Most of our students do well with those challenges, but some struggle. The depth and breadth of support from the school has increased.” She also mentioned her concerns w ith the rapid growth of technology. She descr ibed handling t hat technology is “a difficult process. Sometimes it takes parents and the school to help educate students about how to do that wisely and safely.” Ms. Siso Stentz lives in Hamilton with her husband Ben Stentz, who is executive director of the Princeton Recreation Department. —Donald Gilpin

“From Private Worries To Common Stories”
Freelance writer Sarah Vander Schaaf will speak about the private toll of anxiety in her talk, From Private Worries to Common Stories on Thursday, April 20 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Robert Wood Johnson (RWJ) Fitness and Wellness Center, 3100 Quakerbridge Road in Hamilton. The talk, which is open to the public, is sponsored through a partnership between NAMI Mercer and RWJ Hospital. After her personal essay about living with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and anxiety was published in The Washington Post, Ms. Vander Schaaf devoted much of her time looking
at the mental health issues shared by high-achieving women and families. From international students in exclusive schools to successful businesswomen, people all over the world wrote to Ms. Vander Schaaf to share their private pain and struggles with anxiety, panic, OCD, addiction, and depression. “There is so much that can be done when it comes to coping with anxiety,” Ms. Vander Schaaf said, “but, as friends, and especially as parents keeping up a good front, we don’t really share this part of our private lives.” To facilitate learning from one another, Ms. Vander Schaaf writes a blog for the Mental Health Association ( MHA) of New York City and hosts regular Facebook Live interviews with MHA’s Director of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, John Draper. NAMI Mercer, based in Lawrenceville, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of individuals and families affected by mental illness through education, mutual support, and advocacy. It is an affiliate of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. For more information on Sarah’s talk, contact Janet Haag, executive director at (609) 799-8994 ext. 11 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Putting Poetry in Motion With Chuck Berry and Jim Jarmusch
phia Inquirer interview about Mystery Train, Jarmusch says, “I think of my films as being somehow more related to poetry as a form than to prose …. I like the spaces that happen between things, even between dialogue. Sometimes that’s a lot more meaningful than the dialogue itself. There’s even a word in Japanese that comes from the Chinese idiogram ma, that we can’t translate into English …. It basically means the space between things which defines those things by not being a part of them.” Jarmusch’s cinematic poetry is about more than things and spaces, it’s in the rhyming of gestures, of moods, and places, like the poem of continuity that happens when Mitsu ko ( Yû k i Kudô) offers a Japanese plum in lieu of a tip to a Memphis bellhop while 28 years later Laura, the bus-driver poet named Paterson’s Iranian partner and wannabe countr y singer ( G olsh if teh Farahani) bakes perfect little Persian miniat ure cupcakes for market day in Paterson, a film about both poetry in the world and poetry on the page. You get a nice sense of Jarmusch finding poetr y in the world w h e n h e tel l s T I M E : “I j u s t loved riding for a week, shooting on the bus — just the point of view of looking slightly down on t he sidewalks, and all those little shops and things. It’s almost theatrical, i n a b e aut if u l way.” The poetry of continuity illuminates the film’s denouement when a Japanese poet (Masatoshi Nagazse) visiting his hero William Carlos Williams’s hometown runs into Paterson (Adam Driver) at a time when his poetry notebook has been savaged beyond saving by Laura’s bulldog, a loss that threatens his faith in his art, so that when he’s asked what he does, he says he’s a bus driver

when he wants to say he’s a poet. The man from Japan knows better and presents him with a book of blank pages. Paterson’s benefactor, the saver of his poet’s soul, is played by the actor who was sullen Jun in Mystery Train. So, in a rhyme that spans decades, the 20-something rock and roll fan paying his solemn respects to Elvis and Carl Perkins shows up as a middleaged poet tourist paying homage to the space-between-things poetry of William Carlos Williams. And they’re all passengers on the director’s mystery train by virtue of a Japanese word for which there is no translation. St. Louis Hero Right now Jim Jarmusch is probably the only person on the planet capable of devising a film that would d o j u s t i c e to Chuck Berr y’s hometown, St. Louis, where the Walk of Fame on Delmar Boulevard includes T.S. Eliot, William Burroughs, Miles Davis, Yo g i B e r r a , Dizzy Dean, Josephine Baker, and Tennessee Williams. Imagine that group frequenting an imaginary Hotel Maybellene, with, say, T.S. Eliot as the desk clerk and Chuck Berry as bartender of the Club Nadine. Hav ing outlived Elv is by almost 40 years (and T.S. E l iot by 52 ) , Chuck Berry is buried in Bellevue Heritage Gardens, Creve Coeur, St. Louis County, Mo., after the funeral for “a St. Louis hero” reported a week ago in the New York Times. The story featured a photo of Mr. Rock ‘n’ Roll in his coffin with his sailor hat on and his red Gibson laid against the white plush of the coffin lid. Poetry in Motion Anyone who doubts Chuck Berry’s poetical instincts should compare his “Downbound Train” to the one Elvis sings about
NE COM XT IN WE G EK !
I love poetry. I love rhyming. —Chuck Berry (1926-2017) If he had not become such an extraordinary director, Jim would now be a rock star. —Wim Wenders on Jim Jarmusch everal times a week I drive up the hill into Kingston, always with music on the stereo. One morning it’s Ella Fitzgerald singing “Lush Life,” and I take the hill nice and easy, true to the late-night flow of the lyric about “those come-what-may places/where one relaxes on the axis of the wheel of life/to get the feel of life.” But when Chuck Berry’s singing, the axis is tilting, the wheel of life is spinning, the come-what-may places have gone south, the car’s “rocking like a hurricane,” Beethoven’s rolling under the wheels, Tchaikovsky’s running for his life, and my CRV is a Coupe de Ville with mad Maybellene in the passenger seat urging me on (“go, go, go!”) as Chuck comes up from behind in his Ford V8. Now we’re side by side, Kingston’s turned into Cape Girardeau, and we’re motorvatin’ down I-55 on our way from Chuck’s St. Louis to Elvis’s Memphis, the setting of Jim Jarmusch’s Mystery Train. The method behind my vehicular madness is simple: one of the wisest, most interesting, most humane filmmakers in the world is in town today, Wednesday, April 19, and will be appearing on campus at 4:30 in McCosh 50. The Fascinated Foreigner “Everything was car culture and rockand-roll,” Jim Jarmusch told the New York Times in 1992, three years after Mystery Train had come and gone. That midwestern-American high school truth about music and cars was uttered by someone who became “an immigrant in the teenage world” after his hair turned white at the age of 15. That’s according to Tom Waits, the voice of the late-night DJ in Mystery Train. The key to Jarmusch, Waits says, is that he’s been “a benign fascinated foreigner” ever since: “And all his films are about that.” No wonder, then, that viewers of Mystery Train first see Memphis in the company of a lovably conflicted young couple from Yokohama (perky Mitzuko, deadpan Jun), and later through the wide wide eyes of a woman from Rome (Nicoletta Braschi) gazing at the vision of Elvis in midnight-blue lamé that just appeared in her room at the Arcade Hotel. The “fascinated foreigner” has made the rounds in the urban Americana of New York, Cleveland, New Orleans, L.A., Detroit, and Jersey City, from the Memphis of Elvis and Sun and Stax to Paterson, the little city Allen Ginsberg and William Carlos Williams put on the map, not to mention worldwide surfacings in the wilds of Canada, Tangiers, Rome, Helsinki, Paris, and you might also add the city Mitzuko and Jun see in Memphis: “If you took away sixty percent of the buildings in Yokohama, it would look like this.” Poetry in the World “Say it, no ideas but in things,” says William Carlos Williams in Book One of Paterson. In a December 1989 Philadel-
at the beginning and end of Mystery Train, “coming down the line and around the bend.” Berry’s train is a drunken stranger’s dream, the engine “sweaty and damp” with blood, and “brilliantly lit with a brimstone lamp” with “imps shoveling bones for fuel while the furnace rang with a thousand groans.” This song train steams and howls and burns along like an infernal “Ghost Riders in the Sky” with the devil yelling and passengers shrieking with pain: “Wider and wider the country grew/ faster and faster the engine flew/louder and louder the thunder crashed/Brighter and brighter the lightning flashed.” In an early Rolling Stone interview, asked by Greil Marcus where he gets his ideas for songs, Berry says it all begins when he hears a riff “going over and over” and someone says “It’s too dark in here,” which becomes “the story of a girl who hardly could go anywhere, ‘cause at the movie it was too dark, at the party they went to it was one dim light burning,’” and “when they went back home there was no one there and the lights were out and the fuse was blown and it was dark in there. And that’s the way it ends.” Blue Moon In spite of songs like “Downbound Train” and “It’s Too Dark in Here,” Chuck Berry’s music doesn’t evoke the sense of darkness and big city nights Jarmusch expresses so effectively. Somehow it’s always daylight on Maybellene’s highway, the street where Nadine is “walkin toward a coffee colored Cadillac,” and the basepath where the “brown-eyed handsome man” is “rounding third and headed for home.” How to explain why Jarmusch is so good at doing night? Maybe it’s his inner vampire, the one that conceived Only Lovers Left Alive. Or maybe he identifies with Walt Whitman in “The Sleepers”: “I dream in my dream the dream of all the other dreamers.” Whatever it is, there’s poetry in the way the ghost of Elvis haunts Mystery Train and the Arcade Hotel, where every room has a portrait of the King in his charismatic prime, except in the ruins of Room 22 with its unhung, knockedabout image of the grinning overweight Elvis in his Las Vegas decline. Finally, one reason I revisited Jarmusch’s Memphis was to see if could find a hint of Chuck Berry somewhere on the premises, like a casual reference at the bar or over the pool table, or maybe it’s asking too much of a film that has room for Joe Strummer of The Clash and Screaming Jay Hawkins. ut look what happens as soon as I get in the car and “Too Much Monkey Business” comes on, and Chuck’s singing “I been to Yokohama, been fightin’ in the war.” Hold on, weren’t Mitsuko and Jun from Yokohama? Is that just a coincidence? Or is it the poetry of continuity? A sonnet to serendipity? A verse on versimilitude? Or is it just that this man’s music is everywhere. Like John Lennon said, “If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry.’” —Stuart Mitchner

“NASSAU INN”: This charming oil painting of the Nassau Inn is among the 27 works by James McPhillips currently on view on the second floor Reading Room of the Princeton Public Library. The exhibit titled, “Nassau Hall to Hoagie Haven,” includes familiar scenes of Princeton along with McPhillips’ pop rebus images. The paintings are on display and available for purchase until July 31.
Princeton Paintings by James Princeton and the surround- rather quickly, sometimes McPhillips on Display at PPL ing areas, along with the pop staying up until 3 or 4 a.m.
If you don’t already have James ( Jay ) McPh illips’ Princeton rebus on your car, you’ve likely seen the bright orange bu mper s t ickers around town. Mr. McPhillips’ pop rebus graphics have certainly made their mark on Princeton, and most recently, the Princeton Public Library (PPL). In conjunction with the redesign of the library’s second floor, Mr. McPhillips debuted his biggest art show to date, “Nassau Hall to Hoagie Haven.” On display in the Reading Room until July 31, the body of work features paintings of
rebus graphics synonymous with Mr. McPhillips’ name. Commissioned by the Arts Council of Princeton, the exhibit includes 27 paintings of familiar scenes around town ranging from local businesses to campus buildings. Some works even offer insightful quotes like his rebus painting that suggests, “Let’s all get a master’s degree in compassion.” While half of the paintings were already complete when he was asked to exhibit his work at the grand opening of the second floor, Mr. McPhillips had to complete the rest
painting. “You name it, I’ve painted it,” says Mr. McPhillips. “When I’m walking through town, I usually notice the lighting around a particular scene that really makes it stand out. I’ll take a picture of it, and work from the photos to recreate the image using oil paints. I’ve found that the paintings work better if I know the place well.” Indeed, Mr. McPhillips knows the town. After working as a Comedy Central TV staffer and ad agency art director in New York, he worked for many years
“BREAKING WAVES”: This painting by Dale Smith is a part of the Watercolorists Unlimited Art Show and Sale on Saturday, May 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Blackwells Mills Canal House, 598 Canal Road in Somerset. The Watercolorist Unlimited artists’ work includes local scenes, florals, barns, landscapes, and seascapes. The group consists of 10 experienced watercolorists who meet monthly to critique and inspire each other.
as a graphic designer for McCarter Theatre, where he grew to know and love Princeton. Featuring everything from the Palmer Square Christmas tree to the Robertson Hall Freedom Fountain, McPhillips’ paintings can’t help but pull at Princetonians’ heartstrings, but he’s found that people are particularly drawn to his scenes of social places. Mr. McPhillips’ most popular paintings are of Hoagie Haven and Small World Coffee, and he’s been commissioned to paint the Ivy Inn not once, but twice. This might evidence locals’ proclivity for eating and drinking, but Mr. McPhillips credits their popularity to the increased tourism in town. “It seems that there’s more tourism in Princeton than ever,” notes Mr. McPhillips. “The town’s architecture and social and cultural centers are starting to draw people from around the world. It brings good vibes to the town and makes everything more attractive to paint.” It also makes quintessential Princeton places like Hoagie Haven and the Nassau Inn more than local hotspots, but also tourist attractions. Whether you’re a native or an out- of-towner, Mr. McPhillips’ paintings allow you to bring home a piece of Princeton. All the works from “Nassau Hall to Hoagie Haven” are available for purchase with proceeds going towards the Arts Council of Princeton, The Princeton Public Library, and the artist. Mr. McPhillips currently resides in Doylestown, Pa. where he works independently selling his paintings, t-shirts, stickers, and posters through his website JayMcPhillips.com. They can also be found at jane Consignment located on 7 Spring Street in Princeton, or online at PrincetonMagazineStore.com. The Princeton Public Library is located at 65 Witherspoon Street and is open Monday–Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Saturdays, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sundays 1 to 6 p.m. For more information call the library at (609) 9249529 or email Mr. McPhillips at MrJamesMcPhillips@ gmail.com. ———
HomeFront’s ArtJam Opens May 19
HomeFront’s ArtJam, a fun and funky pop-up art gallery, will open Friday, May 19 at 19 Hulfish Street, Princeton and run for three weeks. The 7th annual event brings together professional artists and HomeFront client-artists in a celebration of creativity. It will feature a rotating collection of art for sale and meet-and-greets with the artists. “The event is inspiring, challenging, provocative, a n d e nter t a i n i ng,” s ays Ruthann Traylor, Home Front’s ArtSpace director. “It’s about using the creative process as a tool to heal and using its power to break down barriers to celebrate the human spirit. The mix of artists in this visually stimulating show is as eclectic as the art — and each piece has a story.” Last year the event attracted several thousand people. “It’s gratifying that so many people come together to support ArtSpace and our clients,” says Ms. Traylor. “The proceeds help pay for the tools to create the art. The tools are, in fact, a luxury. Simply being able to buy supplies is a challenge both for clients and for program.” ArtSpace encourages creativity and self-expression in a safe and nurturing environment. Many HomeFront clients have found a sense of purpose, renewal, and confidence through our ArtSpace prog rams, wh ich allows them to discover their talents. “This exhibit is where their creativity is on display and they take pride in what they have accomplished,” Ms. Traylor continues. HomeFront clients speak highly of the program. One client, Sharon A., came to HomeFront to rebuild her life after suffering four aneurysms which left her anxious and unsure about her future. She had always been creative, and loved to paint, but she was reluctant to apply her talents until she went to ArtSpace. “I am excited that I can paint again — I didn’t think I’d be able to,” she says. “Now my confidence is back. I don’t feel like I have limits any more.” Sharon’s work will be part of this year’s event along with a number of HomeFront’s talented clients.
Curated by Ms. Traylor and her volunteers, the art runs the gamut of media. It includes paintings, photography, glass, sculpture, and jewelry. Also, included in ArtJam this year are products created at Sew ing Space, a branch of HomeFront’s ArtSpace program teaching HomeFront clients how to sew and focuses on fostering entrepreneurial skills. Says one HomeFront volunteer, Susan Ashmore, “The art is just incredible because it’s filtered through imagination and life experience. There’s a lot of exuberance and energy.” Much-needed sponsorships for ArtJam are welcome. For information on sponsorship opportunities or other ways to be a part of the ArtJam experience, contact Ruthann Traylor at (609) 883-7500 or via email at: ruthannt@ homefrontnj.org. or visit www.homefrontnj.org. An opening public reception is set for Friday, May 19 from 6-9 p.m. All artwork will be for sale, and proceeds from this exhibit will benefit HomeFront’s ArtSpace and SewingSpace programs. The reception and show are free and open to the public. ———

Into the Woods
Fairy Tale Characters Meet When They Venture “Into the Woods”: Lewis Center Presents Sondheim and Lapine Musical at McCarter
he Lewis Center for the Arts is presenting Into the Woods in the Berlind Theatre at McCarter. In this musical, fairy tale characters undertake individual quests, encountering temptations — and each other — along the way. The music and lyrics are by Stephen Sondheim, and the book is by James Lapine. An imaginative directorial concept and strong performances reward audiences for joining these characters on their journey. This production, which celebrates the launch of Princeton University’s Program in Music Theater, is part of a spring semester course that provides students with rigorous experience in creating theater under nearprofessional circumstances. The students have worked with a professional director (Ethan Heard), design team, and stage manager either performing an onstage role or serving on the production team. Mr. Heard’s concept fits the academic venue; the new setting is a library with forest-themed wallpaper, where the stories are brought to life from pop-up books. In this version, the narrator is a young woman instead of an old man. She pulls books from the shelves and mixes them up, just as the story mixes traditional fairy tales. A baker and his wife wish to have a child, but a family curse prevents them from doing so. The witch who cursed the baker’s family demands that they procure four objects: “a cape as red as blood, a slipper as pure as gold, a cow as white as milk, and hair as yellow as corn.” Little Red Riding Hood is sent to take a basket to her grandmother, and Jack is sent to sell his beloved cow. Cinderella flees her stepmother and stepsisters to attend her ball, or “festival.” To get what they wish, the characters must interact with their counterparts from other stories. In this respect, the 1987 musical anticipates the TV series Once Upon a Time.
derella’s Prince — a dual role both in the original production and this one — to wear the same leather pants, underlining the predatory seductiveness shared by the two characters. Meagan Raker (Class of ’18), a soprano, is outstanding as Cinderella. She has an exquisite voice, and her acting deftly highlights Cinderella’s character arc. Like Giselle in the musical film Enchanted, Cinderella outgrows her fairy tale environment. “My father’s house was a nightmare; your house was a dream. Now I want something in between,” she tells her Prince. As the Princes, Jared Brendon Hopper (’18) and Nico Krell (’18) are a joint tour de force in “Agony,” in which they commiserate about their romantic frustrations. Emma Watkins (’18) is strong in her dual performance as Cinderella’s Mother and Rapunzel. Milky White, Jack’s cow, is a prop in some productions; here it has become an entertaining mime, performed by Marshall Schaffer (’20). Professor Stacy Wolf’s Princeton University courses have included “The Musical Theatre of Stephen Sondheim: Process to Production” and “Isn’t It Romantic?

Each character must deal with temptations along the way; the wolf tries to lure Little Red Riding Hood away from her task. Even the baker and his wife encourage Jack to sell his cow for beans instead of coins, without knowing whether or not the beans are magical. Mr. Lapine wanted to write “something that was fun, but packed a punch,” the librettist told Craig Zadan, a Sondheim biographer. Mr. Sondheim, whose generation was the target audience for The Wizard of Oz, wanted to write a fairy tale “quest musical.” The Wizard of Oz influences the opening number, in which the recurring title chorus links individual songs about each character’s wishes. A variety of musical styles — operetta, blues, even rap — gives a distinct voice to each of the characters throughout the show. After the beans grow, Jack climbs his be-
anstalk to explore a world of “Giants in the Sky.” During the second act, the characters must put aside their own needs to survive as a community, as they face dire consequences for actions Jack takes during this visit — as well as mistakes they made while on their own journeys. The library setting will be important during this crisis. Music Department alumna Emily Whitaker’s musical direction is crisp and precise. Mr. Sondheim is known for being skillfully verbose — a parody of a song from one of his other shows begins, “another hundred lyrics just flew out of my brain” — but this cast delivers with clarity lines such as “Not forgetting the tasks unachievable, mountains unscalable — if it’s conceivable but unavailable.” The sets by Reid Thompson offer an artfully disorienting effect, as the library walls often move.

Abigail Washburn and Béla Fleck Captivate Listeners at Princeton University Concert
inishing their second or third piece of the evening, Abigail Washburn and Béla Fleck rose from their seats to acknowledge an appreciative full house in Princeton University’s Richardson Auditorium on Thursday. “Clapping sounds really good in here!” Ms. Washburn exclaimed, eliciting laughter and a further wave of applause. But if, superficially, her remark sounded like preening, it was also true. Every sound reverberated warmly in the intimate, wood-lined hall. Clapping did indeed sound good there. But more to the point, the space wonderfully supported each note of the banjo duo’s engrossing performance that evening. Prompted by the birth of their son Juno, Ms. Washburn and Mr. Fleck began their official musical collaboration in 2013 in part as a way to keep the family together on tour. Their act is a coming together of two of the banjo’s foremost ambassadors. In a career spanning nearly four decades, Mr. Fleck has pushed the instrument well beyond its traditional role in bluegrass string bands (though he does that too). Perhaps best known for his pioneering work with the jazz-bluegrass fusion group the Flecktones, Mr. Fleck has also played extensively with jazz pianist Chick Corea, collaborated with bassist Edgar Meyer and tabla player Zakir Hussain, and composed and performed two concertos for banjo and orchestra. Considered by many to be his instrument’s finest technician, Mr. Fleck has been nominated for 30 Grammys — in more categories than any other instrumentalist in the award’s history — and has won 15 of those awards. If the range of genres Mr. Fleck commands is sprawling, Ms. Washburn demonstrates by contrast that it is not comprehensive. From her 2005 debut solo album Song of the Traveling Daughter, she has staked out a corner of the bluegrass world uniquely her own, largely drawing on oldtime Appalachian folk music traditions, but occasionally integrating elements of Chinese folk music. Ms. Washburn is fluent in Mandarin and her inclusion of the language in her singing is as impressive as it is unusual. She plays with a number of groups that range from old-time music (Uncle Earl) to bilingual, multi-genre experimentalism (The Wu Force). In Princeton, Ms. Washburn and Mr. Fleck sat onstage ensconced in a little nest of microphones, cables, and six or seven banjos of varying size and pitch. The texture of the duo’s sound varied
with each piece, but at no point did they sound thin or deficient. This was due in part to the many different instruments the two utilized. On “Little Birdie,” Mr. Fleck picked up a large cello banjo — strung an octave lower than his normal instrument — and instantly became their rhythm section, his rubbery bass lines grounding Ms. Washburn’s limpid vocals and fingerpicking, occasionally thumping the head of his instrument in emulation of a kick drum. In the next piece he reversed course, teasing out intricate trebly lead lines on a diminutive mandolin-sized instrument. But even when they were both playing standard five-string banjos, each complemented the other in timbre and style. Mr. Fleck played with a rolling three-finger style developed by Earl Scruggs, full of ringing open strings droning along with his melodic playing. He wore metal picks on the fingers of his right hand, giving his notes a keen brightness. Ms. Washburn eschewed picks for the more muted, clucking sound of old-time clawhammer technique, striking the strings of her instrument directly with her fingers. Playing together, the two simmered, with Ms. Washburn’s penetrating, full-throated vocals soaring above their picking. One of the evening’s highlights was “Shotgun Blues,” a searing “old time murder ballad” Ms. Washburn wrote, in which a lady — and, as she explained, it’s inevitably the ladies who are the victims in this narrow genre — plots her revenge on a no-good man. The song stretched between a spare, rattling introduction, with both musicians beating ominously on their instruments, and a howling coda with both playing at full tilt — a musical tension that mirrored the speaker’s vacillation between restraint and murderous fury. ost of the material Ms. Washburn and Mr. Fleck played was from their self-titled 2014 album, though the duo also opted to test-run a few new songs. But whether the songs were familiar or not, the audience hung on their every note. After their performance, when the duo came back onstage for an encore, Ms. Washburn proposed they play one of three songs. Audience members clamored indistinctly for their favored number for a few moments until Ms. Washburn, grinning, asked, “Well, do you have enough time for all of them?” We did. —Doug Wallack

This year’s Princeton Festival Gala will go beyond its usual helping of fun, good food, dancing, and auctions to include a demonstration of the new Steinway Spirio piano, a breakthrough in technology that accurately recreates live performances in the listener’s own living room. The gala will take place on Saturday, April 22 at 6 p.m. at Greenacres Country Club in Lawrenceville.

This will be the first local public demonstration of the new instrument. “Listening to the Spirio is an uncanny experience,” said R ichard Tang Yu k, general and artistic director of The Princeton Festival. “There’s nothing mechanical about it – you could swear
it was a live person playing the music.” Spirio owners can access music from Bach to Billy Joel, currently totaling more than 1,700 selections, captured from the playing of Steinway artists. The instrument can also be played like a normal piano. The Princeton Festival’s 13th season of performances across the genres of opera, Broadway musicals, jazz, dance, choral music, and more will run from June 3-25, 2017.

pruning of plants in spring is recommended for some plants, but which plants and how is what you need to know. As an example, roses are typically pruned in early spring — how to do it properly is an art!” Careful Preparation Nick Pirone, owner of Cutting Edge Lawn and Landscaping in Pennington also points out the importance of careful preparation and the need for a thorough cleanup of the grounds before the grass is cut. “You want to remove all the debris left over from the winter. Pick up sticks, and rake or blow out old leaves from planting beds and shrubbery. While leaves are good compost for your lawn when cut up, they do inhibit your lawn from proper growth when left in heavy piles. “Cutting Edge provides design and installation of new landscapes, weekly property management, shrub and
tree pruning, mulching, and more. Once your beds are cleaned out, it is important to add a two-inch layer of triple ground root mulch to all your planting areas. This helps with weed control, retains moisture for the plantings, and looks great. “Spring is a great time to plant shrubs, flowering perennials, and trees,” continues Mr. Pirone. “Bulbs are planted in the fall along with the re-seeding of your lawn. While you can seed now, it is difficult to keep new grass established during the heat of the summer. “When we design and install new landscapes, we take many factors into consideration. Especially working in and around Princeton, deer resistance is at the top of the list. Sunlight conditions and proximity to foundations or overhead wires are also important when creating layouts.

add great splashes of color while offering no temptation to deer.” Mr. Pirone is proud that his family has a long history of service in the Princeton area. “My grandfather Felix Pirone and my father Bert Pirone had one of the largest paving contracting businesses in Princeton for the past four decades. Now I continue to serve the area with my landscaping and lawn business. Whether the homeowner is looking for an update to the existing landscape or a total overhaul, we are happy to handle it all. We have extensive plant knowledge, which helps us to help you. We know what to plant and where!” Keeping the kids occupied and happy in the summer is important and at times, challenging. Whether away at camp or home with daily activities, they need to be motivated and engaged. Internet Security Digital Doc, the tech repair company in Princeton North Shopping Center, with a new Princeton Tiger Tech division on Nassau Street, has some great opportunities for the younger set, notes marketing manager Mercedes Samuels. “ We w i l l b e r u n n i n g workshops throughout the neighborhood to teach the public (specifically kids and parents) about phone maintenance. We also host workshops about internet security at the local libraries and recreation centers. “In addition, we offer a number of repair services
for iPhones, Galaxy’s, iPads, and more. Along with repairing items, we sell refurbished products. You can upgrade your broken device by buying our renovated tech items, including laptops, ipads, and iphones. We also offer pre-paid plans and wireless services provided by H20.

Toning up the “contours” for the beach or the legs for the tennis court is certainly good advice and available at the many fitness centers in town. Of course, for face, hair, and body pampering, hair salons and spas are in abundance. Salon Azzurro in Rocky Hill specializes in providing the perfect style, cut, and color for its clients. As owners David and Joe Maccarone point out, “Spring always brings change. We are busy doing balayage and adding highlights. Clients are also prepping for conquering humidity’s effect on hair, and that’s where keratin treatments are both necessary and extremely popular. “Keratin treatments smooth the cuticle layer of hair and battle against frizz and ‘fly aways’ in straight, wavy or curly hair. A great keratin treatment does not imply stick straight hair; it does, however, imply much shinier, smoother hair in whatever finished look a client prefers — straight,
wavy, or curly. A capable, educated stylist can create whatever results the client wants, and we have different types for various kinds of hair and for a variety of finished looks.” New Styles In addition, report David and Joe Maccarone, new styles are always popular in spring. “This year, hair with movement is the trend, with beach and body waves gaining weekly in popularity. This look is created with a type of perm using larger size rods.” Easy maintenance is another favorite option, they add. “Clients are looking for ‘wash and wear’ hair, and this, too, contributes to the popularity of beach and body waves.” Beata Giermasinska, owner of Amber Spa in Pennington, notes that spring and summer are the busiest times in the the beauty industry. “Not only do people emerge from the winter months with dry and dull skin and desperate for help, but also wedding, prom, sandal, and bathing suit season brings in new clients. “Our brides and promgoers love lash and hair extensions, spray tanning, professional make-up, and our favorite red carpet treatment: Intraceutical Oxygen Infusion. “With lower UV levels, spring is a great time for facial rejuvenation,” adds Ms. Giermasinska. “A series of microdermabrasion or facial peels will significantly improve your skin before summer. “Also very popular in the spring is Lipomassage, also

It is the first treatment scientifically tested and clinically proven to reduce cellulite, rid your body of diet- and exercise-resistant fat, and tighten and tone loose, sagging skin.

No. 6 PU Open Crew Excited by 7-0 Start But Has Plenty of Room for Improvement
t didn’t take long for the Princeton University women’s open crew varsity 8 to make a statement this spring. Opening the season by hosting nemesis Brown and Michigan State in late March, the Tigers posted an impressive victory covering the 2,000-meter course on Lake Carnegie in 6:28.5 with the Bears taking second in 6:30.9 and the Spartans coming in third at 6:31.5. Princeton head coach Lori Dauphiny was heartened by the opening day triumph. “Brown is always very competitive; they come prepared,” said Dauphiny. “It was a great way to start the season and we were excited by the result.” Building on that start, Princeton’s top boat defeated Columbia and Clemson on April 1 and then cruised past Harvard and Cornell a week later to win the Class of 1975 Cup. Last Saturday, the sixth-ranked Tigers held off a late surge by No. 8 and previously undefeated Yale to win the Eisenberg Cup
well loved and well read since 1946
and improve to 7-0. “I think we are making progress step by step, which is good,” said Dauphiny. “We are really developing through the year.” Dauphiny credits senior co-captains Catherine Babiec and Georgie Howe with helping to spark that development. “They have been really leading by example from the early fall and I think that their message is a positive one for the team,” said Dauphiny. “They want to carry some of the momentum that we built last year—the momentum being good vibes and go fast. We are a positive team. We will have our setbacks but they are always striving forward.” The positive approach exuded by Babiec and Howe has rubbed off on the program’s younger rowers. “I think the sophomore class has showed nice progress from last year,” said Dauphiny. “Sophomore year is a tough year at Princeton; you take more classes and it is not all new like it was your freshman year. I feel that the sophomore class has really been tested and has come out on top.” In beating Yale last Saturday on the Housatonic River in New Haven, Conn., Princeton passed a serious
test. The varsity 8 led at the 1,500-meter mark and withstood a strong move by the Bulldogs down the stretch to win the race by 1.2 seconds. “Yale did a really nice job in that last 500, it was their home course which is nice because you know where you are; when you are in foreign water, you don’t really know the landmarks,” said Dauphiny. “We had the lead and the upper hand at that point and they ate up half a boat length there, one seat, two seats, three seats and four seats. The Princeton varsity 8 could have imploded. Instead, they kept their heads on their shoulders and that was good. They just kept at it and they didn’t let the other crew rattle them. I think that definitely shows the maturity; it also shows that we need to make some improvements.” Dauphiny is looking for her top boat to be sharper from start to finish. “We need to work on certain aspects of our racing; we are not great at shifting cadence and being effective at the new cadence,” explained Dauphiny. “That is something we are continuing to work on. We are just coming to it now in the season. Prior to that, we were figuring out other issues, like starts. We are moving on to examining our

race plan more carefully and fine-tuning some of those points that we haven’t really been able to work on.” While there are things to clean up technically, Dauphiny has no qualms with her squad’s overall competitive approach. “I am very proud of the whole team,” said Dauphiny. “Last weekend was challenging for us and I feel like the team handled it with maturity and a positive attitude. Overall it is a good team spirit and enthusiasm. It is a great way to start the season and now we are in the middle of the season.” With Princeton heading north this weekend to row at Dartmouth on April 22,
Dauphiny knows her rowers can’t rest on their laurels. “ U n d e f e a t e d d o e s n ’t mean anything at this point because the season is at a time when all teams are developing, not just us,” said Dauphiny. “I am well aware from our
upset last year [winning the Ivy League regatta grand final after losing to Brown in the season opener] and getting the upper hand. That can happen at any championship.” —Bill Alden

In Danger of Suffering a 2nd Straight Defeat, PU Men’s Lax Explodes to Beat Dartmouth 16-6 After falling 15-10 to Lehigh to start the week, the Princeton University men’s lacrosse team had cause for concern as it trailed Dartmouth 5-3 at halftime last Saturday. But Princeton head coach Matt Madalon wasn’t fazed, believing that the tide would eventually turn for the Tigers. “We weren’t worried as a coaching staff, the message at halftime was stay the course,” recalled Madalon. “You are playing well, keep pushing, let’s cash in on some opportunities. Shots weren’t going in, their goalies made a couple of good
saves. It wasn’t that we were playing slow.” The Tigers got off to a fast start in the second half as senior star Zach Currier caused a turnover after the opening face-off and got the ball to freshman star Michael Sowers, who scored 11 seconds into the half. “It was a really exciting play; it was a nice spark to get going right out of the gate in the second half,” said Madalon. “I think any time you get a start like that, it makes it a little easier. That cut the lead and we put in three goals in a short amount of time.”

Princeton didn’t look back, outscoring the Big Green 8-1 in the third quarter on the way to a 16-6 win, improving to 8-4 overall and 3-1 Ivy League. “From there, our guys just took a deep breath and realized that things were going to be fine if we kept playing,” said Madalon. “ S y s te m - w i s e n o t h i n g changed; it was a matter of some shot selection and some shots falling.” The Tigers got contributions from a lot of players in the win over the Big Green. “There were a handful of guys that stepped up and made some plays,” said Madalon, who got three goals and three assists from Sowers with Gavin McBride and Austin Sims each getting two goals and an assist and the trio of Charlier Durbin, Sean Connors, and Connor McCarthy tallying two goals apiece. “Sam Gravitte did an excellent job at the face-off X. Zach Currier did an excellent job at the face-off X as well. Defensively, Bear Goldstein and Arman Medghalchi played outstanding. Offensively everyone just chipped in. It was good to get Austin Sims back and see him get his legs underneath him a
little bit.” It was good for 17t h ranked Princeton to get back on the winning track in wake of the disappointing loss to Lehigh. “You hope you win them all but there are obviously games that you lose,” said Madalon. “When we lose, it is not necessarily hit the reset button. It is, ‘hey let’s figure out what we didn’t do well as coaches, what we didn’t do well as players and make the adjustment.’ When it comes down to it, our goal remains to win the Ivy League so we needed to be able to flip the switch and get going. It is always nice to get back in the win column.” With Harvard (5-6 overall, 1-3 Ivy) coming to Class of 1952 Stadium this Saturday, Madalon is looking for his team to get going faster than in recent play. “It is going to be a great game, they are a very athletic team,” said Madalon. “ T h e y h ave g ot t h e i r strengths in the right spots so we are looking for a heck of a matchup. We just need to put a good week of practice together one day at a time and make sure we are sharp and firing on all cylinders and that we are healthy. It is really just come out and execute and hopefully start a little faster than we have in the past.” —Bill Alden

PHS Baseball Gets Into Win Column With Senior Gross Swinging a Hot Bat
With the Princeton High baseball team getting four games postponed in the first week of the season, Dan Gross had trouble finding his hitting stroke. “I started out pretty cold in the beginning of the season, we only played two games in the first week,” said PHS senior outfielder Gross. Last Saturday at Pennington, Gross warmed up, slamming a two-run double in the sixth inning as PHS tried to rally from a 9-1 deficit. “I was just looking for something to hit, he was going outside on me for a few pitches,” said Gross, who added a single earlier as PHS ultimately fell 13-3. “I was really looking for a fastball out there and when it came I just took it to the other field.” For Gross, who was sidelined much of his sophomore season due to injury, coming through in his final
campaign means a lot to him. “I think it is the second year in a row that I have been in the cleanup spot so I have grown into it,” said Gross, who kept up his hot hitting last Monday, going 3-for-4 with a triple, four runs, and an RBI to help PHS defeat Trenton 18-7. “It feels good to get back into the swing of things.” In reflecting on the loss to Pennington, Gross acknowledged that the Little Tigers need to swing the bat better when they have runners on base. “I think that is something we need to work on for this season,” said Gross. “That is really going to make or break us.” PHS head coach Dave Roberts likes the work he is getting from Gross in the cleanup spot. “Dan is doing well for us in the No. 4 hole; he always
GROSS PROFIT: Princeton High baseball player Dan Gross follows through on a swing in a game earlier this spring. Last Monday, senior outfielder Gross went 3-for-4 with a triple, four runs, and an RBI to help PHS defeat Trenton 18-7 and improve to 2-4.

works good at bats,” said Roberts. “He has a really good approach. He stands on top of the plate and he is tough to throw strikes to. They are not going to get the ball inside on him. He really puts together good approaches and has been all year.” Roberts is looking for his pitchers to sharpen up their approach on the mound. “It got away from us a little bit, we are really harping on the pitching staff about not putting people away and leaving breaking balls over the plate,” said Roberts. “Guys are getting on base all over the place. They are leaving pitches over the plate. They are not getting ahead or staying ahead.” With PHS coming off a 6-1 win over Trenton last Thursday to get its first victory of the season after three losses, Roberts is seeing some bright spots. “Ben Amon looked good aga i ns t Trenton on t he mound; I am happy with that performance, his first varsity start,” said Roberts. “Jaedyn Paria has been pretty good as well at leadoff.” “It looks like we are going to cruise through the early half of this week with the weather,” said Roberts, whose team improved to 2-4 with the second win over Trenton and will look to keep on the winning track as it hosts Nottingham on April 19, hosts South River on April 20, plays at Allentown on April 21, hosts Princeton Day School on April 22, and then plays at Hightstown on April 24. “I am hoping we can get into a rhythm. I thought the Thursday win against Trenton might help us out.” Gross, for his part, is confident that PHS will heat up. “I really do feel like we are making progress; it is just the minor things that we really need to work on,” said Gross. “If we really fix those things, we will come up on top in a lot of the games.” —Bill Alden
After Singles Stars Opt to Not Compete for Team, PHS Boys’ Tennis Making the Most of Situation Before the 2017 season even started, the Princeton High boys’ tennis team suffered some big losses. The squad’s two top ret ur ning singles players, junior Noah Lilienthal and sophomore Jerry Gu, opted not to compete for PHS this spring due to other commitments. As a result, Little Tiger head coach Sarah Hibbert has been forced to go with some new faces. “Kevin Yang is the only full-time starter returning from last year’s lineup,” said Hibbert of the junior who is playing at first singles. “We have a complete upheaval this year. This is a complete rebuilding year for us but we also have eight freshmen on the team.” Despite being in a rebuilding mode, PHS has produced a promising 4-0 start. “What I have said to this group of guys is that we want a team that is dedicated and that is here,” said Hibbert. “I would rather have a group of guys that work hard. These guys are dedicated, working hard, and they are getting good experience. We will see what happens.” Yang is giving the Little Tigers some good work at the top of the lineup, having moved up from third singles. “He was in the singles mix last year and he has worked hard,” said Hibbert. “You can see that his power and consistency has improved. He will get a lot of experience this year playing first singles. He will have to work a lot harder at first than he did at third. He will definitely learn a lot.” As second singles, sophomore Simon Hwang is on a learning curve. “Simon came on as an alternate for us last year; he was our fourth singles player when Noah wasn’t
involved in matches,” said Hibbert. “He got some good experience, he got to play a couple of big matches for us.” Hibber t is hoping that freshman Brandon Peng can make big progress at third singles. “He brings a lot of potential as a freshman; he had a really good match with Notre Dame,” said Hibbert, whose team topped Notre Dame 5-0 on April 5. “It was very, very close and he was able to hold his nerve and win a 7-6, 7-5 match against somebody he knows from training. It was a good experience for him. As he settles into the role, he will get more more experienced and hopefully will do really well.” A pair of seniors, Ares Alivisatos and Matt Danielson, bring experience to first doubles. “They are good friends and they have played together; their styles do complement each other,” said Hibbert. “Ares is very consistent. He is a cross country runner and he hustles a lot. Matt is good at the net. He is tall and is a good volleyer. Ares can run stuff down and Matt can put them away. They are captains this year for us and they want what is best for the team. They are willing to work hard together.” PHS boasts two more seniors, Mihir Somaiya and Nikhil Vasireddi, at second doubles. “They played together a
Skillman H HFurniture
lot last year and they do complement each ot her with the style of play,” said Hibbert. “We are hoping for good things out of them. They had a very good win for us against Lawrence (3-2 on April 10). They were the clinching point and that was important.” The main focus for Hibbert right now is to help her players adjust to their new spots in the lineup. “It is getting everyone settled into their roles, getting the doubles teams to work well together and getting some chances to work on some strategy,” said Hibbert. “It is getting the singles players out there and comfortable in their roles as well.” With the Mercer County Tour nament star ting on April 24, Hibbert is hoping that her players develop a comfort level quickly. “We want to get as many matches there as we can and do as well there as we can,” added Hibbert, whose team has home matches against WW/P-North on April 19 and WW/P-South on April 20 before playing at Hightstown on April 21. “A lot will come down to the draw and how we fall in. The luck of the draw is really huge. We may get seeds, we may not.” —Bill Alden

MAN UP: Princeton Day School boys’ lacrosse player Elon Tuckman sends the ball upfield in a game earlier this season. Last Thursday, junior star Tuckman tallied a goal and three assists to help PDS edge Princeton High 5-4.

Elon Tuckman is growing out of his role as the precocious young gun for the Princeton Day School boys’ lacrosse team. Tuck man burst on t he scene in 2015, setting a PDS program record for most points by a freshman in his debut season. Last spring, he was a key cog as a group of senior stars, including his older brother, Jonah, along with Connor Fletcher and Joey Levine, helped the Panthers enjoy a season for the ages as they went 15-1, wining the state Prep B title and the program’s first Mercer C ou nt y Tou r na m ent crown. Now, as a battle-tested junior, Tuckman knows it is his time to be a go-to player for the Panthers. “I am not the little brother on the team any more,” said Tuckman. “It was known that graduating Connor, Jonah, and Joey, all t hos e s en iors, that it is definitely a different offense. Coach ( Rich D’Andrea) said some guys need to step up. I am looking to that role, trying to be a leader on this team, filling the spots that we need.” Last Thursday, as PDS played at Princeton High, Tuckman stepped up, tallying a goal and three assists to help the Panthers pull out a 5-4 win. While Tuckman was happy to see PDS pull out the win, he was disappointed with its offensive execu-
tion. “ We h av e h a d b e t te r games; I think we can play a lot cleaner,” said Tuckman. It looked like PDS was going to clean up in the early going, jumping out to a 3-0 lead with 3:30 left in the first quarter as Tuckman had a goal and two assists with senior star Will Brossman tallying the two other goals. “T hat was g reat, Nick ( Day ) was w inning face offs, Will ( Brossman) was bur ying his shot high to low,” said Tuckman. “Ideally that is how we wanted to come out.” Over the years, Tuckman has developed a deep connection on the field with Brossman. “Will and I have been playing for three years,” said Tuckman. “He is one of my best friends, he is an amazing player. I consider him one of my brothers. On the back of our shirt, it says ‘together.’ It is really a brotherly love.” T h e PD S brot h erho o d was exemplif ied against PHS by how the Panthers held together at the defensive end. “Our defense really stepped up, Connor Green played well in goal,” said Tuckman. Late in the third quarter, Tuckman played a key role on the game-winning goal, whipping the ball to Jack Konopka, who fired it into the back of the net.
“Jack made a great cut, he c aught, he f i n is he d, and it was text book,” said Tuckman. “He is a really st rong shooter, he set the tone in the offseason, taking a bucket of balls and coming on goal and shooting. He is a really good player.” PDS head coach D’Andrea likes the way Tuckman is setting the tone this season. “Elon is a piece that we have built a lot around,” said D’Andrea of Tuckman, who tallied four goals and assists in a 14-2 win over Hopewell Valley last Monday as the Panthers improved to 5-1. “He is a presence on the field and he has a way of com mand ing. His te am mates certainly are lucky to have him.” PDS knows that it was lucky to escape with a win over PHS. “Princeton always does a great job; I think in all my time at PDS, it has always been a relatively close game; it is a crosstown rivalry,” said D’Andrea. “We came out firing and they made some defensive adjustments. Their goalies made some nice saves today.” Sophomore goalie Green along with senior face-off specialist Day made a big difference for the Panthers against the Little Tigers. “Defensively, Green made a great save at the end of the game and Day had an-
ot her phenomenal game at the X,” said D’Andrea. “T hose guys have really anchored our team.” T h e t e a m’s d e f e n s i v e unit came up big throughout the game. “The guys stepped up big time,” added D’Andrea. “They played physical, played together, and we balanced out. This was a defensive win.” In D’Andrea’s view, coming through with the tight win bodes well for the rest of the spring. “We knew coming in that we were going to be playing a lot more of those one or two-goal games with this schedule,” said D’Andrea, whose team hosts the Hill School ( Pa.) on April 19 and plays at Peddie on April 25. “That is a way for us to stretch the program and be ready for tournament time. We know how to win in big spots. A game like this definitely builds character.” Tuckman, for his par t, believes the Panthers can produce another big tournament run if they keep their minds on playing together. “We can’t focus on the personal things, it has got to be the team mentality,” said Tuckman. “It can’t be who has the most points. We are stressing pass, pass, dodge. It has got to be just moving it and getting the team goals.” —Bill Alden

Showing Character in Victory Over Pingry, PDS Boys’ Tennis Looking Forward to MCT Things weren’t going well initially for the Princeton Day School boys’ tennis team as it hosted Pingry last Thursday. W hile PDS junior star Lex Decker was cruising to a straight set victory at first singles, the other four matches were very much in doubt. “The only person who was really handling his opponent was Lex, everybody else was down big in the first set,” said PDS head coach Will Asch. “All four courts came back. I was really, really pleased with the mental effort that the kids made and the positive sort of attitude. We have a lot of upperclassmen and that is helpful.” The Panthers ended up pulling out a 3-2 win and showed their focus as they stuck around afterwards to break down the match. “They also talked about it a lot after the match; they all wanted to talk about how they played and what strategies they used,” said Asch, whose team improved to 2-1 with the victory. “It is not often you get kids talking about it, they are very interested in improving and talking about the strategy of the game. They are students of the game.” F ir s t s i ngle s s t a ndout Decker has raised the level of his game. “Lex has really improved a lot this year,” said Asch. “He moves a lot better and he hits the ball a lot harder. He is older and smarter.” One of the team’s young players, freshman Christopher Delaney, figures to make a big impact at second singles. “Christopher is at No. 2; he is a very good player,” said Asch. “He is a big hitter but young. Freshmen are not always as well rounded. He is very, very good.” Battle-tested junior Vivek Sharma, who has played a lot of doubles for PDS, has stepped up into the third singles spot for the Panthers. “He is a big, strong guy; he volleys well, he has a pretty big forehand,” said Asch. “He is very seasoned. He has a very good attitude as far as improving his game. He has got a lot of potential.” The first doubles pair of junior Riley Gudgel and se-
nior Jacob Chang has the potential to do some big things this spring. “They are very enthusiastic, they have had some good success,” said Asch. “They are a very solid team.” Seniors Noah Liao and Leo Nye bring experience and chemistr y at second doubles. “They are very close,” said Asch. “They really believe in each other. They lost the first set 6-2 against Pingry and they said we are going to win this match and they came back and they did.”
With the Mercer County Tour nament star t ing on April 24, Asch is looking for his players to show that selfbelief in the county competition. “We are very good, we will be one of the better teams,” s a id A s ch, whos e te a m plays at Hopewell Valley on April 19 and at Pennington on April 20 before hosting Upper Canada College on April 22 as it tunes up for the MCT. “I think we have two very strong singles players. We will see; it is hard for us to win that tournament.” —Bill Alden

Even though Ryan Strype is the captain of the Hun School baseball team, he is not a rah-rah guy. “I am not the loudest; I am not the type of captain to just scream out,” said senior catcher Strype. “I try and do everything I can to lead by example and do everything I can to keep my head up and keep the guys up in the dugout.” Last Wednesday as Hun hosted Princeton Day School, Strype displayed his leadership by example. With PDS jumping out to a 3-0 lead in the top of the first inning, Strype got Hun on track by belting a tworun homer on the bottom of the first to narrow the gap to 3-2. “I have been looking for the fast ball and I have just been missing them, hitting foul balls and he just left it over the plate and I got the barrel on it,” said Strype. Strype’s blast changed the tone of the contest for the Raiders. “I think it helped, especially Jack ( Erbeck) with his pitching,” said Strype. “It got us right back in
the game and it is like a 1-0 game. It allowed him to throw more strikes and keep us in the game.” With Styrpe taking charge behind the plate from his catcher spot, he helped Erbeck settle down on the mound as he ended up going five and two-thirds innings. “It is just make sure he doesn’t dig himself into a hole and get down on himself,” said Strype. “It is all about mentality. If you start getting into your own head, you are not going to pitch well so you just have to throw strikes and keep your head up.” Hun kept hitting, scoring a run in the second inning, three in the third and then getting two in both the fifth and sixth on the way to a 10-5 triumph. “We just had to keep putting the ball into play and we just had to take advantage after that,” said Strype, who contributed a line drive single in the third inning rally. Strype is enjoying taking a leadership role for the Raiders. “It is a great group of guys, it is a great bond,” said Strype. “We always have fun
EARNING HIS STRIPES: Hun School baseball player Ryan Strype takes a big cut in recent action. Last Wednesday, senior catcher and team captain Strype hit a two-run homer to help Hun rally for a 10-5 win over Princeton Day School. The Raiders, who edged Pennington 3-2 last Thursday to move to 4-3, play at Lawrenceville on April 20, head to Mercersburg Academy (Pa.) for a doubleheader on April 22, and then host Trenton Catholic on April 25.

in the dugout, in practice, and in games.” With legendary head coach Bill McQuade retiring last spring after 46 seasons at the helm of the program, the players are continuing to have fun under new head coach Tom Monfiletto. “McQuade brought a lot of energy but Mono also brings a lot of energy,” said Strype. “They preach the same things, they are both great coaches.” In the view of Monfiletto, Strype’s homer against PDS gave Hun a burst of energy. “Ryan is our captain and for him to come up in that situation and get the home run, that was huge,” said Monfiletto. “That got us back a 3-0, three-run home run kind of takes the air out of you, especially after a couple of tough losses in a row. We are sitting here thinking, ‘oh,’ and then Strype comes up and says, ‘no we are here, we got it.’” Hun didn’t sit back after that, pushing the action and taking advantage of several errors by the Panthers. “Our aggressiveness at the plate led to our ability to get some runs across with some help,” said Monfiletto. “I like how we put the ball in play and sometimes when you put the ball in play good things happen. Nothing can happen if you strike out or pop up.” Sophomore pitcher Erbeck made good things happen on the mound as he found his command after a rocky start. “Those middle few innings he really got comfortable and he did really well,” said Monfiletto. “He settled down, maybe he needed to get it out of his system. He started throwing really well. He was throwing hard, he was locating. That curve ball is a very good pitch and he can throw it at any count. Having the confidence in Strype behind the plate also helped him have the confidence to throw that.” Hun built on the victory over PDS by edging Pennington 3-2 a day later to improve to 4-3. “It is always a good win since we have so much respect for PDS,” said Monfiletto, whose team plays at Lawrenceville on April 20, heads to Mercersburg Academy (Pa.) for a doubleheader on April 22, and then hosts Trenton Catholic on April 25. “We don’t have have any easy games on our schedule. Going against Steinert, St. Augustine, PDS, and Pennington, that is a tough stretch there. If we can come out of this week with two wins, I would be really happy.” Strype, for his part, believes Hun can be tough to beat if it keeps up its aggressiveness with the bat. “We have got to keep putting the ball into play,” said Strype. “We don’t have the most hits in our past two games but if we keep hitting the ball hard, eventually hits are going to start dropping and we are going to put up more runs for our pitching so our pitchers can settle in.” —Bill Alden
With Fassl Aiming to Enjoy Final Campaign, Hun Softball Looking Like a Powerhouse The temperature soared into the 80s as the Hun School softball team hosted Lawrenceville last week. N o t h av i n g p l a y e d i n eight days before the April 11 contest, the Hun players came out on fire with their bats, scoring three runs in the bottom of the first inning. Senior star catcher Julie Fassl got things started for the Raiders from the leadoff spot, lining a single, stealing a base, and then coming home on a fielder’s choice. “I was trying to get myself out of the slump; hitting a single to right center felt great just to get it out of the way,” said Fassl. “It started off the game well too. We all followed up on it too; it got momentum going.” Hun built on that momentum, adding two runs in the second and four more in the sixth on the way to a 9-1 triumph. Fassl helped spark the second inning rally w ith an RBI triple. “That at-bat was the longest I have had,” said a smiling Fassl. “It really felt nice to hit the triple, I just got in front of it and I got it right in the power zone. It was a perfect pitch, a perfect hit, it felt great.” Hun’s offensive outburst on the win over L awrenceville had Fassl feeling very good about Hun’s prospects this spring. “We are very young but a lot of our girls are playing travel which is great,” said Fassl. “We are all pract icing outside of school ball. We have a lot of powerful bats too. We are all just working together now. When someone gets on, the other girl hits her in. It is working really well the year.” Batting first in the lineup gives Fassl the chance to spark the Raiders. “I love batting leadoff for Hun, it gives me more confidence because the team has confidence in you as a leadoff batter,” said Fassl. “It feels great, I like getting the extra at-bats.” Having starred at field hockey and basketball at Hun in addition to softball, Fassl is savoring her final season at the school. “I am upset about it but at the same time you have to enjoy it,” said Fassl, who is headed to Virginia Wesleyan to play field hockey and softball and named as a Trenton Softball Hall of Fame scholarship winner. “It is t he last s eason, there is no pressure on you. You have done all you do. This year I am just really trying to enjoy it.” Hun head coach Kathy Quirk was happy to see Fa s s l h av e a b i g g a m e against Lawrenceville. “Julie is just such a competitor; if she doesn’t do well, she gets frustrated,” said Quirk. “She has come around and she plays well. She
Route 206 • Belle Mead
is a competitor and she just wants everyone to do well.” Quirk was pleased with the contributions she got throughout the lineup in the win over Big Red. “I thought their pitcher did a nice job but we were jus t able to c apita li ze,” said Qu irk, whose team defeated Rutgers Prep 20-0 last Thursday in improving to 3-1 and plays at Lawrenceville on April 20, hosts Academy of New Church ( Pa.) on April 22, and plays at Princeton Day School on April 25. “We practice hitting every day. We practice with heav y balls, we practice w ith w iff le balls. I have been telling them. We just can’t go through the motions. You are at bat to hit a ball.” S enior Kate O’Connell lashed two hits in the Lawrenceville game, showing how s h e has b e n ef it te d from that practice. “We just tell her to just go up there and slap it and have fun,” said Quirk. “That it is a key to her, she has just got to have fun. She has come such a long way. The first hit she had today was a beauty. She is enjoying it, she is a captain. She has really taken
over with the role. I am just really happy for her.” Junior transfer A lanna Pearson had fun in the circle, striking out seven and giving up two hits in going the distance. “It has been tough be cause Julia Revock hasn’t been on the mound,” said Quirk. “My defense is the best when Alanna is on the mound.” T h e H u n d e fe n s e h a s been bolstered with freshman Gigi Venizelos playing shortstop and sophomore Meghan Donohue finding a spot at third base. “I have been happy with Gigi at shor tstop, she is usually a third baseman,” said Quirk. “We have moved her and moved Meghan to third, both of them did it for the good of the team. Meghan is a first baseman and she said, ‘I will do what you want.’” Fassl, for her part, is happy with how Hun is coming together and sees big things on the horizon. “Our team is really close chemistry-wise; we are all friends,” said Fassl. “We have bonded really well so far. I am looking for states this year and MAPLs (Mid-Atlantic Prep League) too.” —Bill Alden

Bob Dougherty Rober t Ely Dougher t y, Bob to all who knew him, died peacefully on April 9th, 2017. He was raised in Princeton, New Jersey and Old Lyme, Connecticut. Bob’s parents, Grace Ely Bassett Dougherty and Gregg Dougherty, were longtime residents of Princeton. Gregg was professor of organic chemistry at Princeton University. Grace was raised by Ernest Cushing Richardson, who was the librarian at Princeton University from 1890 to 1925. Bob’s education started w ith Miss Fine’s School and Princeton Country Day School. He then attended Phillips E xeter Academy in Exeter, New Hampshire. There he served as a president of his class and a class cor respondent for many years. Following his cherished years at Exeter, Bob returned to Princeton University and was a highly congenial member of the Class of 1950. He re-settled in Princeton for the duration of his life. After Princeton University, Bob started as a real estate agent in the offices of Edmund Cook and Associates and served in the National Guard. Bob then co-founded his own real estate firm, Stewardson and Dougherty Realtors. Sadly, his partner Bill Stewardson passed away soon after the firm’s start-up. Bob persevered with a loyal team of real estate associates who opened and closed many doors in the greater Princeton area. His firm’s s lo ga n w as S te w ard s on and Dougherty Associates — Your Key to Excellence. One of several premier real estate agencies in Princeton, Stewardson and Dougherty closed its doors in 1995. He then consulted and helped establish the Coldwell Banker Schlott offices on Nassau Street. In addition to his professional life, Bob served as a trustee of the American Boy Choir and Princeton Day School. Bob was also a member of the Pretty Brook Club, Nassau Club, and the Mayflower Society. Beyond the role of a trustee, Bob supported many civic events, often in quiet and unheralded ways. Some of his greater Princeton family may remember that he was particularly steadfast in his support of the Princeton Hospital Fete. And that had its rewards — Bob won its famous car lottery, not once but twice. He drove home two new Ford Thunderbird convertibles in less than ten years. This was a story that he loved to tell. “What good

Julia Willis Philip
Julia Willis Philip, a longtime resident of Claverack, N.Y., passed away peacefully in Hudson, N.Y. surrounded by her loving family. She was 92. Mrs. Philip grew up in Princeton. Mrs. Philip was born in Richmond, Virginia in 1924 and moved to Princeton with her family when she was a young child. Her father, Professor Clodius Willis, was on the faculty at Princeton University. Mrs. Philip attended Princeton High School, Vassar College then Westhampton College at the University of Richmond. After college graduation, she worked as a reporter for the Princeton Herald, under the editorship of a Princeton graduate and decorated World War II Marine Corps veteran, John Van Ness Philip, whom she would marry in 1952. Mrs. Philip, was one of the first women fruit growers in Columbia County, and for over 30 years, managed “Philip Orchards,” in Claverack, first with her husband,
John Van Ness Philip, then as sole proprietor for 24 years following his death. The farm, which has been in the family for more than 280 years, is one of the oldest continually operating family farms in New York State, and is part of the Dutch legacy of the Hudson Valley. A pioneer working woman and civil rights stalwart, she raised five children while holding jobs in New York City, for many years at Fund For the City of New York and at the English Speaking Union. During the 1960s she was part of the Harlem Initiative, a group of Manhattan PTA mothers who helped bus children down from Harlem after bus drivers refused to comply with new laws that mandated integration of the public schools. In 1967 she helped her husband found Modern Distribution Management, a newsletter, that became a leading publication on business innovations. In 1975, she and her husband moved their publication from Manhattan to Claverack and devoted themselves to the management of his family’s historic ancestral home and farm. Over the years, Mrs. Philip opened the family’s 1802 colonnaded house “Ta-
lavera” for Columbia County Historical Society house tours and events. In 1992 she was part of the founding group that worked to save the Hudson Opera House from demolition. She went on to serve on the newly formed Opera House Board for many years, working to initiate the restoration efforts, which have led to its eventual flourishing as the Arts Center it is today. She also sat on the boards of two important New State Historic Sites: Wilderstein in Rhinebeck and Clermont in Germantown. She was a longstanding trustee of the Columbia County Historical Society and in 2014 was honored for her contributions by being designated A First Columbian. She is survived by her siblings: Sallie Jesser (Princ-
eton); Lee Willis (Charlottesville, Va.); and Clodius Willis (Pittsburgh, Pa.); her children: John Van Ness Philip III (Andrew Loren Resto); William Churchill Houston Philip (Mana Kobuchi Philip); Thomas Willis Philip (Emily Beth Cohen); Katherine Philip Chansky (James Chansky); Leila Stott Philip Evans (Garth Evans); nephews, nieces, and grandchildren. A service will be held at Christ Church, Hudson, New York at 11:30 a.m., Saturday, April 29, 2017. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations in her name be sent to the Columbia County Historical Society, 5 Albany Ave Kinderhook, NY 12106, or to the Greenport Fire Department Rescue Squad 3 Newman Road Hudson, NY 12534.

luck,” he would say with his perpetually optimistic voice. Bob was also a very dedicated servant to his religious home of the Nassau Presbyterian Church. An elder of the church, he was also a generous supporter of its renowned music program and renovation projects. In his private affairs, Bob’s life settled beautifully when he married Patricia Paine in 1987. Her previous marriage had ended in divorce. For 30 years, he relished his role as a loving husband to Pat, and stepfather to three sons, Thos Paine (wife Lisa) and brothers John ( wife Patty), and Rod (partner Li); and grandfather to five grandchildren, Sarah, Laura (husband David), Jack (wife Jessi ), Em ily and Evan. Also, surviving Bob are his cherished nephews, Gregg Dougher t y ( w ife Robin ), Marsh Dougherty (wife Mary Ann), and grandnephews Michael, Miles, Ryan and grandniece Kat.

5 STEPS TO A HASSLE-FREE CLOSING
FOR SALE: 2000 DODGE RAM 1500
Your offer’s been accepted, you’ve done your due diligence, and now you’re ready to close. Keep the process as simple as possible with these tips: • •
Clear your schedule. Set a closing day and time that works for you, then make sure to keep that time free of other obligations. Bring the right amount - and type - of funds. Ask the title company how much money you’ll need and what forms of payment they accept. Many require cashier’s checks, but there may be other options. Arrange for homeowner’s insurance. Make sure the policy begins on the date you’re scheduled to close, and also be sure you have the right amount and right types of insurance for your home’s security. Review your forms. No matter what side of the table you’re on, you’ll need to sign plenty of official documents. Review them as soon as you receive them, and ask your lender about any terms or costs you don’t understand. Do a final walk-through. Make sure the home is in the same general shape as it was when you made your offer, and ensure agreed-upon repairs have been made.
Do some legwork ahead of time, and your closing can be smooth sailing.

COME ONE; COME ALL! Tucked among mature trees on a quiet cul-de-sac in Princeton’s Riverside section, you will find a lovely colonial set on a superb lot. Bluestone path leads to the welcoming front door, and in you go! Slate entry opens to some of the most delightful rooms we’ve seen, with the living room having glowing wood floor, traditional mouldings, oversized windows, and two custom built ins, consisting of arches, shelves, and storage. A woodburning fireplace serves as the perfect focal point. The formal dining room can accommodate any size group, whether a family gathering, or an elaborate dinner for friends. Both the dining room and living room open to the bluestone terrace, which has plenty of seating around it’s perimeter. Cookouts, drinks, and fun for all! A paneled study has built in bookshelves, storage, and even a wet bar. But wait--there’s more! The current owners designed and built a most incredible addition. In the fantastic kitchen/great room there are built in bookshelves, recessed lights, a gas fireplace, plus glass doors to an Ipe deck, which overlooks peaceful gardens and meandering path. The chef’s kitchen has every bell and whistle, including Miele steam oven and five burner Miele range. Custom cabinets are crafted of maple, and there is plenty of counter space, as well as storage cabinets. What a treat to work in a space like this! Don’t miss the first floor powder room, updated beautifully, and having a really cool “feel”. This addition exemplifies the much desired “open concept”. The second level continues in this vein, with spacious bedrooms and hardwood floors. The master bedroom, part of the exquisite addition, has a charming window seat, walk-in closet, many windows and the third fireplace. Ensuite, of course, there is not only a full bath with a large shower, but an additional half bath in this wing. In the opposite wing, there are three additional bedrooms and two full baths. All this just a stone’s throw from the University, the New York bus, and town. Just what you’ve been asking for! $1,475,000

W ! NE ING ST LI BE STILL MY HEART! This story-book house, crafted of stone and wood, is clearly one of Princeton’s extraordinary properties. Surrounded by more than four acres, documented provenance handed down from owner to owner, states that this house was once a cottage. Designed by Wilson Eyre Jr., and built in the Arts and Crafts style in 1919, it is hardly a “cottage”, having five bedrooms and three full and one half baths, including an in-law suite. Staggeringly beautiful trees and plantings provide the perfect foil for the house itself. Stone walls and breezeway add to the lyrical charm of the grounds. Much of the land and trees are mature, and require only minimal attention. Looking at the house, your eyes will be drawn to the new cedar shake roof, rebuilt recently in complete harmony with the surroundings and original design. Walk down the herringbone-patterned brick path, and you enter a large, beamed great room, with stone seating, carpet, and a wall of stone. Many windows bring in light, and the views of the garden are delightful. The living room, with gleaming wood floors, has a wall of built-ins, wood-burning fireplace, and recessed lighting. There is a more formal entry, as well, with a welcoming Dutch door, antique beams, and tons of light. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any more charming, you see the dining room, with another wood-burning fireplace, built-in corner cupboard, and exposed wood ceiling beams. What delightful family gatherings and holiday meals can be shared in this special room! Adjacent to the dining room is the eat-in kitchen, with five burner gas stove and butcher-block eating island. Now hold on to your hat--the sunroom can be considered the piece-de-resistance, with brick floor (having radiant heat), built-in bookcases, in-ground planters, floor-to-ceiling windows, and built-in desk. Grab a book and settle in, or enjoy breakfast there every morning surrounded by the three walls of windows and the views beyond! On the main level is also a wine closet, workshop, and slate-floored mud room. The second floor has treasures, too. Four bedrooms, including the large ensuite master bedroom, are light and airy, and there are plenty of closets. But wait--there’s more! Returning to the main level, go up the private stairs to the in-law suite Bedroom, full bath, and large all-purpose room complete the picture. Visiting family and guests will love the privacy and “cool factor” of these rooms, or you could have a private place to write your novel! Detached three car garage completes the picture. We are proud to present this very special listing for $1,200,000
