Council Postpones Waxwood Decision To Sept. 25 Meeting The fate of the Waxwood development on Quarry Street will not be determined for at least another month, as Princeton Council has deferred action to its September 25 meeting in order to seek more input and information before making any decision. If a 2002 agreement with architect and developer J. Robert Hillier, a Town Topics shareholder, is allowed to take effect, with subsequent amendments allowed to lapse, Mr. Hillier would sell the units. If Mr. Hillier’s preferred alternate proposal, presented August 10, 2017, is accepted, then the Waxwood would continue as a rental property. Under a third alternative, Mr. Hillier would set up a fund that would help residents with down payments or foreclosures. Currently three affordable units are being rented to qualified neighborhood Continued on Page 8

Cautious Optimism About Westminster Buyer The announcement last week that Rider University is negotiating with an “international partner” to purchase Westminster Choir College and keep it in Princeton has students, faculty, alumni, and supporters of the music school hopeful that its future is secure. But they are not taking the news for granted. “We are cautiously optimistic. We just have to be careful to not count on anything until we know what the facts are,” said Constance Fee, who heads the Coalition to Save Westminster Choir College in Princeton. “The most important thing I read in the letter was that whoever these people are, this international organization would maintain the campus in Princeton. That has been our whole focus. We have no indication of what that would mean in terms of whether we are an independent institution, do we have our own board, own faculty, and programs? There is no way to know. I have to keep a rein on my hope that this might be what we know, but we don’t.”
In an effort to stem a growing financial loss, Rider’s board voted in March to sell the Princeton campus of Westminster, which it has owned since 1991. At the time, Rider president Gregory Dell’Omo said the priority was to find a buyer that would keep Westminster in Princeton, though that wasn’t the only option. Since then, the Coalition was formed. They hired attorney Bruce Afran, who filed a lawsuit in June claiming that, based on the 1991 merger agreement, Rider has no legal right to sell the music school. An amendment to the suit stated that Rider’s claimed $10 million annual deficit was not caused by Westminster. On August 17, Mr. Dell’Omo sent an email to the college community announcing that a potential buyer had been found. He declined to identify the buyer, but wrote, “After reviewing proposals over the last several weeks, the Board will now begin negotiations and due diligence with the selected potential partner.” According to Rider spokesperson Kris-
tine Brown, “This selection is the continuation of the process begun in March with formal outreach to approximately 280 entities …. As we have said throughout this process, our goal was to identify a partner that is best positioned to make the necessary investments in and build upon Westminster’s world-class curriculum and rich legacy in Princeton.

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

accused by Iran authorities of ”spying under the cover of research.” Princeton University issued a statement last Thursday expressing support for Mr. Wang and reaffirming that he is innocent of all charges. “We are distressed that his appeal was denied, and that he remains unjustly imprisoned,” the statement read. “Mr. Wang was not involved in any political activities or connected to any government agencies; he was simply a scholar conducting historical research.” The University statement continued, “Mr. Wang has already been kept apart from his wife and 4-year-old son for more than a year. The University continues to hope that the Iranian authorities will allow this genuine scholar, devoted husband, and caring father return to his doctoral studies and his family. We will continue to do everything we can to be supportive of Mr. Wang and his family, and of efforts to seek his safe return home.” Mr. Wang has been at Evin Prison in Tehran since August 7, 2016, and he spent his first 18 days in solitary confinement, according to Princeton University. He has been in multiple wards during his time in prison, and both the University and Mr. Wang’s wife Hua Qu have expressed concern for Mr. Wang’s health under difficult prison conditions. During his confinement Mr. Wang has had four consular visits by the Swiss embassy, which represents U.S. interests in Iran. He has also been permitted to make phone calls to his wife on an almost weekly basis and has had several visits from his attorney. The American Council on Education and 31 other higher education and research associations have issued a statement urging Mr. Wang’s return home, and more than 1,400 researchers from 37 countries have signed a petition also calling for his safe return. A State Department official has called “for the immediate release of all U.S. citizens unjustly detained in Iran so they can return to their families,”

and last month the White House said that President Trump “is prepared to impose new and serious consequences on Iran unless all unjustly imprisoned American citizens are released and returned,” but it did not specify what those conditions might be. Mr. Trump and his administration have taken a hard line against Iran and Iran’s destabilizing policies in the Middle East. The State Department has also accused Iran of fabricating security-related charges to detain Americans and others, and has advised, “All U. S. citizens, especially dual nationals, considering travel to Iran should carefully read our latest travel warning.” Asserting that Mr. Wang’s “research was solely for the purpose of completing his academic work,” the statement by higher education
organizations stated, “Scholars around the world engage every day in archival research in pursuit of historical knowledge. Mr. Wang’s imprisonment can only have a chilling effect on historical research and scholarly exchange in Iran and throughout the world, and this, in turn can only lead to diminished understanding and greater mistrust, to the detriment of all. We urge the safe release of Xiyue Wang and call for him to be allowed to return home to reunite with his wife and young son and complete his degree.” —Donald Gilpin

in films ignominiously stored in dusty vaults, correspondence, and the historic significance of this institution, deserve immediate transfer to the Smithsonian, for digitalization and preservation.” Mr. Parks recalls singing Christmas carols for Albert Einstein in the scientist’s kitchen, as Einstein played along on his violin. Another Einstein memory: “When schoolmate Tyler Gatchell (a Princeton native ) and I watched the 3D movie House of Wax ( ’53 ), we heard a guffaw behind us. We turned around to see Dr. Einstein (a familiar Princeton figure on his bicycle) in 3D glasses.” Originally known as The Columbus Boychoir, the choir and school were founded in 1937 in Columbus, Ohio. The organization moved to Princeton in 1950 and changed its name in 1980. From 1952 to 2012, the school, which is for boys from sixth to eighth grades, was based at Albemarle, the former estate of pharmaceutical magnate Gerald Lambert. Sexual abuse lawsuits brought by former students in 2002 cast a shadow on the school. A decade later, ABS sold Albemarle and moved to Plainsboro. By 2015, facing financial troubles and a dwindling enrollment, the school had relocated to Rambling Pines Day Camp in Hopewell. “I am writing with difficult news about the American Boychoir School,” Rob D’Avanzo, chairman of the board of trustees, wrote to supporters last week. “Over the course of the summer, our anticipated enrollment for the 2017-18 school year declined unexpectedly. Students whom we had expected to return decided not to
do so, and our recruiting effor ts for new students failed to materialize at the levels we had seen in recent years. At present, we believe we would have only 19 to 21 boys with which to open the school in three weeks. this is at best the bare minimum for us to be able to present a professional choir that is up to our standards.” ABS filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April 2015, stating it needed $350,000 to finish the school year and $3 million to emerge from bankruptcy and open for the next academic year. “Even with the continued generous support of the ABS community, the anticipated revenues would not support our operations, which include the satisfaction of our obligations under our Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization. We worked very hard with our committed staff to try to fashion a reduced-cost “break even” budget within these revenue constraints; it just could not be done,” the letter continued. The choir numbered 80 boys when Chester “Chet” Douglass was a student at the school in the 1950s. Mr. Douglass, who chaired Harvard University’s Department of Oral Health Policy and Epidemiology from 1978 to 2008, has fond memories of singing with the NBC Orchestra (now the New York Philharmonic) and going on concert tours to 33 states. “It just chugged along,” he said. “It really did appear that it set the standards for boychoir singing.” Mr. Douglass blames the demise on several factors: the economy, parents who aren’t willing to send their 10-year-old boys away to school, and the fact that puberty comes earlier to today’s boys than it did in the past, causing their voices to change earlier. “They might have put us on a train in In-
dianapolis and tell us how to change trains in Philadelphia and go to Princeton, where there will be someone to meet you,” he said. “Try telling that to parents today.” The closing of the school is lamented by Catherine Dehoney, executive director of the organization Chorus America. “For many years, the school set the standard for boychoirs and excellence in choral performance for young voices in the U.S., and it helped to inspire the founding of other boychoir programs of different models (non-boarding, year-round),” she wrote in an email. “Chorus America and others have conducted research showing the myriad benefits for children and youth who sing in a chorus …. The choral field owes a huge debt of gratitude to the work of the school over the years.” Some alumni think the choir could come back to life. “Many of us hope for resurrection in the future,” said Mr. Navarette. “I would be remiss if I didn’t say how much admiration I have for the tireless work the entire board put in during the past 10 years, trying to continue this important mission. That has to be acknowledged. No one was doing this for any reason other than trying to continue this mission for these kids. I wanted to send my son there in two years. At some point in the future, I hope a benefactor will help us resurrect the school.” —Anne Levin

© TOWN TALK A forum for the expression of opinions about local and national issues.
Question of the Week:
“In light of the solar eclipse,
do you have a favorite star or planet?” (Asked at the Princeton University Department of Astrophysical Sciences) (Photos by Erica M. Cardenas)
“The Earth is my favorite planet because it is our home, and it is the only home we have.” —Professor Michael Strauss, Princeton
“I love looking at Saturn through a telescope. Jupiter’s fun too, but Saturn’s the best!” —Professor Jenny Green and Baby Ada, Princeton
“It’s the Helix Nebula, which is essentially a dead star. It looks uncannily like the Eye of Sauron from The Lord of the Rings.” —David Vartanyan, graduate student, Princeton
“My favorite star is Eta Carinae. It is a massive star binary that has thrown out material periodically over the last many centuries. In 1843, there was a big outburst that ejected 10 solar masses and looked almost supernova-like. Eta Carinae was one of the first images taken by the repaired Hubble, in part because it is so dramatic and has an exotic story to tell.” —Professor Adam Burrows, Princeton
“I study clusters of galaxies, and my favorite galaxy cluster at the moment is Able 362. It is one of the richest clusters that’s observed in the HSC Survey, a survey of the sky that Princeton is involved in.” —Elinor Medezinski, post-doctoral student, Princeton

(GP) trained at Harvard write an average of 180.2 opioids prescriptions per year, those from the second- to fifthranked schools write 233 per year, and GPs from the seven lowest-ranked medical schools write nearly 550,” Ms. Currie said. Ms. Currie spoke about the need for further education about opioids and their most positive uses. “We need to educate the public that opioids are not appropriate for many types of chronic pain, like back pain, because people build up dependence, leading the opioids to become less effective over time,” she said. “Many people who start off with one problem, chronic pain, end up with two problems, chronic pain plus addiction to opioids. Moreover, the amounts of opioids that
are prescribed after, for example, surgery, are far in excess of what is necessary and often end up being abused.” Ms. Currie noted that she and Ms. Schnell are currently working to refine their study and investigate exactly why and how training makes a difference. “Our study gives a 10,000-foot view. It would be great to zero-in on what aspects of physician training are most important.” Ms. Schnell is also studying the secondary market for opioids, with 30 percent of people who are abusing legal prescription opioids getting them from third parties. Princeton Police Chief Nick Sutter, on the front lines in battling the opioid epidemic, emphasized the severity of the problem and the importance of collaboration in
combatting it. ”Certainly the opioid epidemic is something that we in the police department are dealing with nearly every day in one respect or another,” he said. “We realized some time ago that it is not a law enforcement issue that we can ‘arrest our way out of,’ but rather a public health crisis that requires a multidisciplinary approach to defeat. “Collaboration with medical and psychological health experts and facilities as well as preventative education I believe are essential to this battle. Though out of my purview, I do believe that the medical community must be more responsible in issuing prescription opioids, and we must continue to aggressively address the illegally issued prescriptions of opioids.” —Donald Gilpin

Physicians From Lowest-Ranked Schools Prescribe More Opioids, PU Study Says
TOWN TOPICS, PRINCETON, N.J., WEDNESDAY, AuguST 23, 2017 • 8
Senior Living Community Proposed For a Site Near the Shopping Center A 76-unit senior community is proposed for a parcel near the Princeton Shopping Center on North Harrison Street. Sunrise Senior Living, which has 316 senior communities throughout the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, wants to build a 76-unit complex on a 4.5 acre site at the corner of Harrison Street and Terhune Road. The proposal has been submitted to the municipality, and the company is awaiting comments from the staff. The town approved subdivision of the shopping center property two years ago, to create the lot that is zoned for senior housing. “We’ve been looking at Princeton for years now,” said Jerry Liang, Sunrise’s senior vice president of development and investments. “Sunrise has had a presence in New Jersey for 15 or 20 years, and this is one of those areas we’ve been interested in the entire time.” The application is for two buildings of approximately 63,000 square feet. “We put together, I think, a very
sensible and thoughtful project,” Mr. Liang said. “We’ve spent quite a bit of time with planners as well as neighbors in discussion, taking their feedback into consideration. We did a good bit of outreach. We held meetings and met with some people in their homes.” Those who live close to the proposed community were concerned that the design be tasteful and not too imposing. They also were curious about what kinds of services Sunrise would provide. “So we designed it taking into account the proximity of neighbors, making, in effect, two buildings,” Mr. Liang said. “The [main] building is two stories instead of three, and we moved the memory care floor to the side. The piece of land is relatively thin and long. We did a slightly larger footprint but in effect, there are two buildings. That went over quite well.” Princeton’s needs match what Sunrise has to offer, Mr. Liang said. “It fits into a lot of what we look for, as far as the right location,
right area, and the core services we provide. It is a historic location with a great deal of mix in age groups, but certainly one in which many members of the community have lived a long time. There are elderly residents who have been there their whole lives and need a place to spend their final years or months, being cared for near where they are most comfortable. That’s the vision of Sunrise.” According to its website, the company was founded in 1981 and serves 32,400 people. —Anne Levin
A Princeton tradition!
Waxwood Decision continued from page one
residents at rents at or below those dictated by the Council on Affordable Housing (COAH). Five “foundation units” are available for rent to qualified neighborhood residents at 10 percent below market rent, in accordance with an amended developer’s agreement, but two of the units are empty because Mr. Hillier cannot find tenants who are qualified neighborhood residents. Those units that are rented are now rented for between 35 and 40 percent below market rent. At a working session last Wednesday morning attended by Princeton Council, Mr. Hillier and about 20 others, including residents of the Witherspoon-Jackson community and the Waxwood building, Mayor Liz Lempert described a positive, productive exchange. “Council left with a better understanding of necessary information and issues. Residents had an opportunity to express themselves and their views and to be a part of the conversation.” She noted some support for the position that “a deal’s a deal” and that Mr. Hillier and the town should stick to the original agreement, especially if there are residents who are intending to purchase. But she also noted the potentially negative repercussions of enforcing the agreement. “The original intention was to increase the opportunity for home ownership in the community, but if the price is unaffordable or most residents would like to rent and can’t purchase, that changes the situation.” Councilman Lance Liverman also seemed to be seeking a compromise resolution to the dilemma. “I want what is best for the community. I also want the individuals who were promised they could buy a unit to come to some agreement with Mr. Hillier. I am concerned if these units go on sale that we will displace several folks of lower means. Many folks simply cannot afford a large mortgage. So I would rather them stay rentals with additional affordable housing units added.”
Ms. Lempert stated that she is keeping her mind open in awaiting additional information. “It is important to have a result that is fair and is going to serve the community as best we can in providing additional housing opportunities for residents in the neighborhood and for people who’ve moved away and would like to move back.” She described the Waxwood development project as a “great example of adaptive reuse,” but noted frustration that two of the units are currently empty, suggesting that better communication in getting the word out to the right audience or greater flexibility in rent might help the situation. “It’s not a clear-cut decision,” she said. “Affordability is the big issue. I appreciate that Mr. Hillier has been trying to work with the Council and the community, but a signed agreement is a powerful thing.” In the 2003 agreement between the town and Mr. Hillier, when he redeveloped Waxwood to create housing out of what had been first the segregated Witherspoon School for Colored Children, then a nursing home, then the Waxwood building, named after school principal Harry Waxwood Jr., there were to be three affordable units, restricted for neighborhood residents, and five “foundation” units to be converted ultimately to condominiums. Mr. Hillier arranged for a separate fund to be set up to help with the 20 percent down payment for those who wanted to purchase. In making his case for a change in the original agreement that would allow him to continue to rent the properties, Mr. Hillier noted that the rental market is very strong and that there are few takers
for purchasing condos. He cited letters from long-term tenants seeking to save money by continuing to rent. In his August 10 letter to the mayor and Council, Mr. Hillier noted that the Waxwood, as a rental, has provided “long-term members of the community with highquality, affordable rentals that are not available anywhere else in the neighborhood.” He went on to recommend the option of making seven affordable rental units, either as COAH-qualified or “with a Witherspoon-Jackson preference.” His second-choice option would make six units available on the same terms, but add a $400,000 equity fund to increase affordability or to assist in the avoidance of foreclosures. In his letter, Mr. Hillier also noted that though he maintained the responsibility for the management, maintenance, tax payments, and operations of the Waxwood, he had sold the building in a sale-15 -year-leaseback agreement. “This is a standard financing device, “a mortgage,” he said. “I still have all of the responsibility and incentives to make the Waxwood the best that it can be.” Council has requested a letter from the new owner, Robinhood Plaza Inc., to make sure that it will be bound by the terms of agreements made between Mr. Hillier and the town. Before its September 25 meeting, Council is also seeking an opinion on the legality of the neighborhood preference of setting aside units for people who lived in the community for at least 10 years or are descendants of longtime residents. —Donald Gilpin

pus last week. No precise time table was announced for the transaction, and no further details were given as to the identity of the purchaser. “Is it an educational institution? A business? They haven’t told us much of anything,” said Ms. Fee, who is a Westminster alumnus and voice teacher at Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, N.Y. “Friends who were at the announcement said it was positive but vague. But the administrative people were very enthusiastic. If it is something that could benefit both schools, I think it would be more than we could hope for.” The news “wasn’t what we expected,” she continued. “We thought there was going to be a merger with some other university in America. It is an odd mix of encouraging and unsettling at the same time. But a couple of months ago, we thought both schools were going under.” The priority is for the agreement to be a lasting one. “We’re very concerned that the school not just be maintained for a little while,” Ms. Fee said. “We’re concerned that it be maintained for the duration. We don’t want to go through this again.” —Anne Levin

A Red Orchid Theatre’s
SIMPATICO Featuring Michael Shannon and members of A Red Orchid Theatre
To the Editor: All of us, especially immigrants and new Americans, long for connection and community, for having our gifts recognized and for the opportunity to reach our full potential. While our concepts might vary widely, home and community do have concrete meaning for us all. Real love for home and family can extend to neighbors — and through involvement in civic, non-profit, or religious organizations, benefit the entire community. Perhaps in its broadest sense, community is the experience of being at home. Michael Jacoby Brown goes as far to say, “Community is one of those things that’s hard to define. But you know it when you are in it. It’s a feeling that you are not alone, that you are part of something greater than yourself, yet even when you are in it, you are still yourself.”
Urging Support for American Heart Association’s Central New Jersey Heart Walk On October 7
Princeton Human Services Is About to Kick Off “Welcoming Week” for Community Newcomers
To the Editor: At our major intersections of Nassau and Vandeventer, and Nassau and Witherspoon we often have a conflict between pedestrians trying to cross with the light (and sometimes not with the light) and cars trying to turn left or right at these busy points. The result endangers the pedestrians even if they are walking with the lights, and slows or stops traffic as the cars have to wait for the crosswalks to clear to make their turns. I’ve seen a solution to this in New Haven. There all traffic is stopped in both directions by red lights and the walk lights give preference to pedestrians. They can cross safely and even diagonally as there is no traffic movement to contend with. Then the walk lights say stop, and traffic resumes its flow. If we adopted this system in Princeton we would make it considerably safer for pedestrians crossing at popular and very busy corners, and improve the flow of traffic in the center of town. It may take some work and many levels of approval to get this system adopted since this involves a state road, I believe, but it would be a significant improvement for both drivers and pedestrians and would probably reduce the backup of traffic in downtown Princeton.

ON STAGE THIS FALL AT
Letters Do Not Necessarily Reflect the Views of Town Topics
To the Editor: Did you know that cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the number-one killer of all Americans? In fact, someone dies from CVD every 39 seconds! Heart disease also kills more women than all forms of cancer combined. And congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects. But we have the power to change that. Research suggests up to 80 percent of heart disease and stroke may be prevented with education and lifestyle changes. Each of us can do that through more exercise and a better diet, and by supporting the work of the American Heart Association. I’m asking families, organizations, and businesses in Mercer, Middlesex, Somerset, and Hunterdon counties to support the American Heart Association’s Central New Jersey Heart Walk set for Saturday, October 7 at 8:30 a.m. at Arm and Hammer Park, home of the Trenton Thunder. Heart Walk, the signature community event for the association’s Healthy for Good movement, is held throughout the country to educate the public about the small steps they can take to improve their heart health while also raising vital funds for research to prevent and treat heart disease and stroke, the nation’s top killers. The American Heart Association is committed to helping individuals and businesses foster a culture of health, and to providing science-based treatment guidelines to healthcare professionals, policymakers, and the public.

I remember feeling an intense longing for community when I worked in Montreal for a year. Apart from a few acquaintances at work and the local church I attended, I didn’t know anyone. I couldn’t figure out where I belonged. Should I return home to the u.S. or stick it out in Canada? The decision became easy when Canadian immigration officials denied a visa extension and I received a job offer in Portland, Maine! For those immigrants and new Americans who have chosen Princeton as their home, it’s all about getting to the place where life seems right again. For as long as I can remember I’ve been drawn to other cultures. If you feel the same way, you should know that Princeton Human Services is about to kick off “Welcoming Week” to celebrate people of all backgrounds who are eager to come together to find their place in our community. So let’s get ready to express our unique expression of American hospitality to the newcomers among us. It’s a critical time for all of us to show the world that our community wants to be welcoming to everyone. Consider these timely words of author Jacob Needleman, “America is not a tribal, ethnic or racial identity. It is a philosophical identity composed of ideas of freedom, liberty, independent thought, independent conscience, self-reliance, hard work, justice.” STEVE DRAKE Tenacre: A Ministry of Christian Scientists

Isles, Inc. Unveils Public Art Projects in Trenton
CELEBRATING THE ARTS: Now in its 26th year, the Doylestown Arts Festival will feature 160 juried artists, live music on five stages, local food vendors, art-making, interactive demonstrations, and bike races. The festival will be held on Doylestown’s downtown streets from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10.

Recognized for its picturesque setting and rich year-round arts and culture offerings, the small town of Doylestown, Pa., will once again host the Doylestown Arts Festival, a two-day celebration that is expected to draw tens of thousands of visitors from the MidAtlantic region. The festival will be held on Doylestown’s downtown streets — converted to pedestrian-only avenues during the event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 9 and Sunday, September 10. Fou nded in 1991, t he Doylestown Arts Festival is now in its 26th year. Designed to illuminate the town’s ongoing commitment to arts, crafts, culture, and tourism, the 2017 festival will feature 160 juried artists, live music on five stages, local food vendors, art-making, and interactive demonstrations.

Michener Ar t Museum, the Mercer Museum, Fonthill Castle, the Moravian Pottery and Tile Works Museum, the County Theater, and the Bucks County Civil War Library and Museum as well as an array of galleries, restaurants, and locallyowned shops and boutiques, Doylestown is nationally recognized as a “destination” town. In June, Philadelphia magazine named Doylestown “best fun suburban town”; and in 2013, Travel + Leisure magazine called Doylestown one of “America’s [Top 20] Favorite Towns.” While Doylestown Ar ts Festival director Paul Boger is expecting large crowds, he emphasized that the or-

Two public art projects, a mural and a site-specific installation at a vacant, yet historically significant, building, are part of efforts to reactivate vacant spaces and spark change in how people — residents and visitors alike — perceive Trenton neighborhoods. Though the projects are located in two different neighborhoods, their unifying concept is the newly designated Creek to Canal Creative District, which serves to catalyze redevelopment that supports and is supported by creative activity and that focuses on community engagement. At 147 Perry Street (at Montgomery Street), utilizing Neighborhood Revitalization Tax Credit (NRTC) funding, an 8’x20’ mural has been painted on a freestanding wall constructed specifically for the project. The mural reflects the industrial and natural history of the city and the harmony between the two. Rather than a static mural which remains on an existing wall for a long period of time, this structure will be repainted with new content in the spring of 2018. Jonathan “Lank” Conner, who is painting the first mural, is an artist, designer, and educator from Hamilton. He is a member of the S.A.G.E. Coalition and has worked on public art and mural projects along the East Coast, including many in Trenton. On Friday, August 25, from 5-7 p.m., another project will be unveiled at 20 Bellevue Avenue at North Willow. The Higbee Street School, built in 1857 and later known as the Nixon School, was the first school built in Trenton for the free education of African-American children and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Also utilizing NRTC funding, this project is located in the Trenton Historic Development Collaborative neighborhood. The site-specific installation in the yard of the

A formal unveiling will be held on Friday, August 25 from 5-7 p.m. school consists of a series of oversized books viewed from different perspectives and offers an opportunity for the public to contribute their own words, ideas, and stories to the project. The project was conceived by artist and educator Andrew Wilkinson and constructed by Mr. Wilkinson and Jennifer Dalle Pazze, a student at Rider who holds an associate’s degree in photography from Mercer County Community College. Mr. Wilkinson served as the project manager for both the mural wall and the site-specific installation. For more information, visit www.isles.org.

BACK TO SCHOOL RSM Psychology Center LLC in Princeton Helps Students Improve School Performance
stablished by Dr. Rosemarie Scolaro Moser, RSM Psychology Center LLC opened in Princeton in 2014, after 19 years in Lawrenceville. The center offers neuropsychological evaluations and treatments that can help students as well as older adults. As Dr. Moser explains, RSM “specializes in comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological services for school-age children through older adults. We believe in a treatment approach which is direct, problem-oriented, and solution-focused, and which can be individually or family-oriented.” Dr. Moser, who received a PhD in professional psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, is a boardcertified neuropsychologist and rehabilitation psychologist, and a state-certified school psychologist. She is also an adjunct professor of clinical psychology at Widener University, and is internationally recognized for her work in the area of sports concussions. A fellow of the American Psychological Association and the National Academy of Neuropsychology, she is the recipient of
many awards and honors in the field. An important feature of RSM’s work is its focus on neuropsychological evaluations. As Dr. Moser explains, neuropsychologists have an understanding and knowledge regarding brain/ behavior connections that is more specialized than that of a general clinical psychologist. Brain/Behavior Connections “We are neuropsychologists who are experts in brain/behavior connections. For example, if a child sustains a concussion, a neuropsychologist understands what cognitive functions are affected and which aren’t and how the child will recover and be able to handle school. Neuropsychologists are trained to administer specialized tests (assessing different brain and neurocognitive functions) that the typical psychologist does not, and they know what the pattern of results means in terms of the person’s academic, work, and social/ emotional performance. “For example, when it comes to learning, neuropsychologists know the
differences between attention, short-term memory, episodic memory, procedural memory, recognition and recall memory, long-term, retrieval, storage, etc. This affects learning on a daily basis as well as more formally in school. It affects how parents and children, teachers and students communicate when they share information, discuss, interpret, and question what they say. “Neuropsychologists can identify the structures and functions that need remediation and help develop plans to improve and/or compensate or get around the difficulties. They also help family members, school personnel, and loved ones understand what the person is experiencing and may not really have full control over.” Such evaluations can be especially helpful for students who may not be performing to their potential in school. As Dr. Moser observes, “When academic grades are less than expected, it is not uncommon for parents immediately to seek tutoring and popular learning center services. But, before ‘treatment’ occurs, isn’t it best to have an expert evaluation to
be sure that the treatment is targeting the real issue? For example, many students are diagnosed with attention deficit disorder after a couple of paper-pencil surveys. But, paper-pencil surveys or an interview are not enough to rule out other possible ‘real’ causes of attention difficulties, such as auditory processing difficulties, a reading disorder, or just being really bright, creative, and bored in the classroom.” Dr. Moser points out that neuropsychological evaluations can help identify their clients’ strengths and weaknesses and develop treatments to help them learn and perform their best at school or on the job. These evaluations provide the evidence and documentation required if they need special consideration and accommodation, such as extended time on tests and assignments, access to notes, a separate room for testing, writing skills support, etc. In-Depth Testing “When a student seems not to be performing up to his or her potential, a neuropsychologist can provide the in-depth testing to answer questions about why

this is happening. Is the student gifted and bored in the classroom? Does the student have an attentional disorder that results in inconsistent academic performance? is there an auditory processing issue that prevents the student from doing well in lecture classes? Is the student a superior logical thinker and problem-solver, but needs extra time due to more average range processing speed?” In addition, “Does the student benefit from visual presentation instead of verbal presentation in order to process new information? Does the student struggle
with math due to lower non-verbal skills or due to test-taking anxiety? Is the student an athlete who has experienced concussions that are now affecting mental processing? Are there other non-cognitive factors that are impacting the student’s academic performance such as low self-esteem, victimization due to bullying, social isolation, or recent family stressors?” “There are many factors that influence a student’s academic performance,” observes Dr. Moser. “We currently live in an age in which expectations to excel and perform place an inordinate amount of pressure on students. More is expected of students, and so the
assignments, the homework, and even the school hours are burdensome. “In fact, we know that youth are sleep-deprived in the U.S., and the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Medical Association, and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention all say our school days should start later. As a result, studies show that students who are sleep-deprived and experience academic pressure also suffer from increased emotional and physical disorders. We know that emotional health impacts academic performance.” Several Components Dr. Kathryn Murray, also

tudents with special needs and learning challenges have more opportunities to reach their potential today than ever before. An increased number of schools in the Princeton area offer special programs and
opportunities for a variety of conditions. Such conditions as autism, dyslexia, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), developmental delay, language, communication and speech problems, as
well as emotional issues including anxiety, depression, mood and eating disorders are some of the difficulties students are coping with today. Schools, with the help of qualified teachers and counselors, are working to help students not only reach their academic potential, but also acquire social skills and develop self-esteem. The Rock Brook School in Skillman enrolls students from 3 years old to 21. A private, nonprofit school for communication-impaired and multiply-disabled individuals, Rock Brook was established in 1974, and is approved by the New Jersey State Department of Education, and received accreditation from the Middle States Commission on Elementary Schools (MSCES). Currently, 50 students from 25 different school districts in central New Jersey are enrolled, and in most cases, the student’s home school district pays tuition. Individualized Program The school day is from 8:45 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, September through June. An extended year program is available for six weeks beginning in July. “Our program is for students who require an individualized program, along with intensive speech, occupational, and physical therapy,” explains Mar y Caterson, director of the school. “Counseling, social skills, and physical therapy

This is achieved through highly individualized teaching and therapy sessions, the use of technology supports, and other specialized approaches, as well as strong
interpersonal and supportive connections by the professionals with the students.” Long History The Lewis School of Princeton has a long history of helping students with language-based learning disorders. Founded by Marsha Gaynor Lewis in 1973, it is an independent, coeducational, private day school, accredited by the New Jersey

Association of Independent Schools. Students from PreK through 12th grade are enrolled. The school day runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., and offers a dynamic variety of afternoon programs after 2:30, which are open to all students in the greater Princeton area. They include speech-language therapy, public speaking and communications fluency, music and visual arts, STEM, STEAM, and STREAM, computer coding and applied 3-D printing, technology literacy, SAT/ACT and college application preparation, and oneon-one or small group tutorials in advanced multi-sensory learning strategies; also competitive athletics, aquatics, archery, and track. In addition, a four-week summer camp study program, also open to all students in the greater Mercer County area and beyond, is offered. Although the school focuses primarily on students with dyslexia, it helps students struggling with ADD, ADHD, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, executive functioning, auditory processing, and organizational skills. The school also provides educational remediation and support for high school post graduates, GAP year students, and college students looking to build stronger reading, writing, and study skills. The Lewis School’s mission is articulated by Ms. Lewis, director and head of school. It is “to educate and to empower bright, creative young people whose scholastic achievement and human potential are hindered by unresolved language-based learning issues related to dyslexia, auditory processing, and attention. It is to provide these promising students who learn differently with the most exceptional multi-sensory education opportunity possible, within a school community specifically attuned and responsive to each student’s learning strengths and weaknesses, and to the nurture and enrichment of the whole person.”
The Lewis School uses a number of programs and curriculum designed by Ms. Lewis. “A Lewis School education integrates well-known remedial approaches such as Orton-Gillingham, Wilson Reading, Lindamood-Bell, and related methods with its proprietary LIMMOL system of teaching and learning,” explains Ms. Lewis. Leading Edge “At Lewis, dyslexia is not defined as a reading problem in isolation but a condition that affects language processing in a wide range of modalities expressed in the brain’s learning. Current research corroborates the theory and approaches that Lewis has implemented for decades, keeping the school at the leading edge of educational change and innovation.” “One of the most significant advantages of The Lewis School is its Diagnostic Clinic for educational testing,” she continues. “Assessment in the clinic identifies the distinguishing characteristics of each student’s learning style, and these results are integrated with the diagnostic opinions of other specialists involved with the child. The student’s profile of academic strengths and weaknesses, gifts and aptitudes are the hallmarks that determine his or her placement and academic path.” Multi-sensory education that engages many senses of the brain simultaneously is very important at The Lewis School. As Ms. Lewis reports, “The Lewis integrated Multi-Sensory Mechanics of Language and Learning (LIMMOL) is implemented in all subjects of the curriculum and in related areas of study. Each student’s strengths are optimized, as the underlying ‘mechanics’ and processes of language and learning are repaired and developed. Ms. Lewis adds that unlike many educational programs that tend to focus on the negative aspects of a child’s learning, “At Lewis, we focus on the unique forms of intelligence among students who learn differently. We celebrate the gifts and talents of our many students. The Lewis School has focused on the ‘multiple intelligences’ of students who struggle to cope or are otherwise failing to achieve their potential in traditional classrooms elsewhere. Learning problems are understood, not as disabilities, but as differences: the expression of remarkable and diverse capacities of human thinking and perception” Teachers and instructors at the Lewis School have a depth off knowledge and training in the field of dyslexic education, points out Ms. Lewis. “Their expertise is enhanced through a rigorous continuing program of professional development in neuroscience and evidence-based research and innovation. The Lewis School and Clinic for Educational Therapy has been a member of the International Dyslexia Association and Orton Society since the early 1970s, and our teachers participate in the annual Harvard and Brain Learning Conferences.” After graduation, Lewis students have attended colleges and universities across the country, and go on to successful careers. As Ms. Lewis says, “We have educated thousands of students
through the years, offering not only the opportunity for academic growth and enrichment but also the opportunity to grow socially, athletically, and artistically. Students who experience a Lewis education are encouraged to grow in their new-found self-regard, independence, and accountability, and leave Lewis ready to take on challenges and opportunities in the future. “Whether a child is enrolled in the full-time, summer, or after school education program at Lewis, the students will learn to discover and celebrate their gifts and great talents, which will help them to ‘open the door to a bright future.’ “At Lewis, we celebrate ‘Great Students Doing Great Things!’” Educational Community “Success, Achievement, Growth, and Empowerment” equals SAGE. This acronym conveys the values of Sage Day School. As the Sage mission statement explains, the school’s goal is “to provide a safe, small therapeutic and challenging educational community that integrates social, emotional, and academic growth through the collaboration of students, families, and staff to empower and prepare students with the skills needed to realize their potential and achieve success.” Sage Day Princeton is the latest addition to the Sage Day group of four small private therapeutic schools serving students with special needs. Founded 20 years ago with the first school in Rochelle Park, the Sage focus helps students dealing with emotional issues including anxiety, depression, ADHD, and school refusal, among other conditions. Sage Day Princeton, which opened in 2014 for grades six through 12, is located on Quakerbridge Road in Hamilton. “We offer individual and group, and family therapy, built into our school curriculum,” explains Christopher J. Leonard, MSW, LCSW, M.Ed., the school’s director of operations. “Each student is paired with a Sage Certified Clinician (™) who guides the student through his or her time at Sage. We accept students in all surrounding counties.” Adds Gary Mattia, M.Ed., principal of Sage Princeton: “As administrators, we are strongly committed to the intellectual and emotional growth of each student. Our focus is on the ‘whole’ student as we provide a comprehensive curriculum in classes that are small, supportive, and challenging, along with therapeutic education that is fully integrated into the school day. State-of-the-Art “All Sage students receive individual therapy twice a week, group therapy twice a week, and family therapy once each week at a minimum. At Sage Day Princeton, we strive to insure a personalized, positive learning environment for each of our students that empowers them to recognize their strengths, and realize their potential in order to be prepared to return to their regular school districts and/or go out into the world. “Our state-of-the-art school Continued on Next Page

provides districts in central New Jersey with a unique out-of-district option for classified students with unique needs due to anxiety, depression, mood disorders, school refusal, suicidal ideation, self-injurious behaviors, and eating disorders. Sage fills a specific niche for those students who require consistent,
sustained clinical therapy for themselves, as well as their families, while offering grade six through 12 instructional program that is aligned with the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards.” Constant supervision of the students is a very important part of the Sage philosophy, points out executive director John Reilly, MSW, LCSW, PSYA: “Our organizational

structure ensures that clinical therapists are supervised and mentored by a clinical director, and all of our clinical directors receive equally intensive supportive supervision. Faculty therapists, and appropriate staff members conference and meet regularly on student needs and issues. We work as a team to implement the highest ethical standards and live by these standards. “Our team approach contributes to the growth and development of our students dealing with emotional struggles. We are strongly committed to the students’ intellectual and emotional growth. In our experience, this is what best empowers them to fulfill their potential as lifelong learners and productive members of society.” Student-Centered Dedicated to helping students with language-based learning differences, The Cambridge School opened its doors in 2001 in Pennington. “Cambridge is excited be starting its 17th year,” explains the school’s head Ellen Gonzales. “We serve students with dyslexia, ADHD, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, central auditory processing, and executive function challenges. Our program is founded on evidence-based research and a student-centered approach to education that provides an individualized and specialized yet comprehensive school experience.” A coeducational, independent day school, Cambridge currently enrolls 135 students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Helping students who learn differently, providing them with a stimulating curriculum that engages and motivates them to learn within an encouraging environment is the priority at Cambridge. “Students are empowered to complete homework independently each day, which is a reflection and reinforcement of the instruction they received in class,” points out admissions director Melody Maskell. “The students are also very proud to live by the Golden Rule : ‘Treat others the way you want to be treated.’ And The Cambridge School’s atmosphere is warm, nurturing, and truly dynamic.” The curriculum and course of study is vigorous and state-of-the-art. “Not only do we address the languagebased learning differences in all areas of our curriculum, we integrate state-of-the-art technology including SmartBoards, green screen, 3-D printing, Chromebooks, and ipads in our instruction,” explains Ms. Gonzales. “Though academics are paramount, we also offer a vibrant arts program, a well-established athletic program, and a variety of extracurricular personal interest clubs to round out the students’ school experience.” She points to three important components to the academic program: Special Courses, Methods of Teaching, and Teacher Training. Integral Part Regarding Special Courses: “Our related services are an integral part of of our educational program to further support student learning. Cambridge offers speech and language treatment and social cognitive strategies (™) with our staff of six
certified speech and language pathologists. Occupational therapy is also offered to address motor planning skills, sensory processing, and occupational behaviors. “Methods of Teaching: At all levels of instruction, there is an intensive focus on executive function development to support each student in his or her organizational skills and work production. Cambridge is hosting Peg Dawson, Ed.D, a well-respected expert in the field of executive function, on October 4. This event is open to the public. “Teacher Training: Teachers are language specialists with Level-1 Wilson Reading certification and training in Orton-Gillingham methods, Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes™, Hochman Writing Program, and Making Math Real, to name a few.
Language instruction provides three periods a day for 45 minutes. Direct, explicit instruction with multisensory learning is used to increase opportunities for learning experiences at all grade levels.” The school offers a 4:1 faculty-to-student ratio, adds Ms. Gonzales. In addition to its regular academic program, the school opened a Diagnostic Center in 2016. “This is a team of nationally-certified professionals who are experts in their field, offer comprehensive psycho-educational speech and language and occupational therapy evaluations, as well as screenings for ADHD and executive function,” explains Ms. Gonzales. “It became clear over the
course of time that there was a need in the greater community to assist in the identification and diagnosis of language-based learning differences.” The performing and visual arts are also very important at Cambridge. A winter play and spring musical are performed every year, says Ms. Gonzales. “We also partner with Westminster Choir College to offer instrumental music lessons, hand bells, drum circle, recorder program, visual arts, and more. “In terms of physical education, K-8 students enjoy a rigorous active curriculum with twice-weekly gym and health classes. In our Upper School, we provide physical education opportunities including golf, yoga, tennis, track and field, and PEC.” —Jean Stratton

“Memphis” Kicks-Off Kelsey’s New Season
The curtain goes up on a new season at Mercer Count y Com mu nit y College’s ( MCCC’s ) Kelsey Theatre with Memphis. Presented by PinnWorth Productions, this hit Broadway musical offers a dramatized account of the roots of rock and roll, and radio’s role in embracing the new sounds that transformed the country. Dates and show times are: Fridays, September 8 and 15 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, September 9 and 16 at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, September 10 and 17 at 2 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college’s West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. A reception with the cast and crew follows the opening night performance on September 8. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2010, Memphis is based on a book by Joe DiPietro and the lively musical score of David Bryan, a founding member of Bon Jovi. The plot is loosely based on Memphis disc jockey Dewey Phillips, one of the first white DJs to play black music in the 1950s. Elements of boy-meets-girl simplicity are set against the complex backdrop of American music history and the strict segregation laws of the South at that time. The show stars Matt Coakley of Gillette as Huey; Tamika Reed of Lawrenceville as Felicia; Maureen Hackett of Robbinsville as Gladys; Kyrus Keenan Westcott of Levittown, Pa., as Delray; Robert Harris of Philadelphia, Pa., as Bobby; Jerome Arthur of Somerset as John Gator; and Jeff Dworkin of Langhorne, Pa., as Simmons. Memphis is co-produced by Lou J. Stalsworth and Kate Pinner, and directed by Mr. Stalswor th, w ith co-director Kyrus Keenan Westcott. Music direction is by François Suhr; choreography is by Robert Harris; and costumes are by Kate Pinner. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased online at www. kelseytheatre.net or by calling the Kelsey box office at (609) 570-3333.
Pianist Clipper Erickson will open the Westminster Conservatory 2017-18 Faculty Recital Series with a performance titled “The Russian American Connection” on Sunday, September 17 at 3 p.m. in Bristol Chapel on the campus of We s t m ins ter Choir Col lege of Rider University in
The program will include music by Russian and American composers, including Modest Mussorgsky’s monumental Pictures at an Exhibition. Other works include David Finko’s Sonata No. 1, which was inspired by the Yiddish Jewish World and its culture, particularly by the Moscow State Jewish
Amy Beach’s Ballad, Op. 6. He will also perform Sonata Notturna, composed by Richard Brodhead for Clipper Erickson. The composer wrote about the work, “The sonata is cast as a series of night images, contrasting in character but closely related in their underlying material. Together, these images
elements of both variation and fantasy. ” Erickson studied at The Juilliard School, Yale University, and Indiana University, training with the British pianist John Ogdon and Alexander Fiorillo. Erickson has won top prizes at international competitions such as the Busoni
orchestras throughout the United Sates, as well as a recitalist in venues including the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., Carnegie Hall, and Symphony Space in New York. Learn more about this performance at www.rider. edu/arts or by calling (609) 921-2663.

Gunslinger Defends Planet Earth From Extinction
aurie Chambers (Katheryn Winnick) is understandably worried about her 11-year-old son’s recurring nightmares. In them, her son Jake (Tom Taylor) is becoming convinced that the demise of Earth is imminent. So, she takes him to a psychiatrist who diagnoses Jake’s visions as delusional and has him committed to a mental health facility. However, Jake really is psychic, and he is accurately forecasting the impending extinction of life on Earth. The planet’s only hope of averting this apocalypse rests on the shoulders, or more precisely, on the trigger fingers of Roland Deschain (Idris Elba). He’s the last in a long line of gunslingers from another dimension who have been locked in mortal conflict with forces that are led by Randall Flagg (Matthew McConaughey), an evil sorcerer who is on a quest for infinite power. World domination by him is attainable if Randall can reach the Dark Tower, the nexus between time and space that is located in a parallel universe called End-World. Soon the mysterious figures in Jake’s dreams begin to materialize on the streets of Manhattan. After Randall’s minions murder Jake’s mother, the boy is rescued by Roland. The two escape through a portal to Mid-World where the epic battle to preserve life on Earth unfolds. That is the point of departure of The Dark Tower, an
adaptation of Stephen King’s magnum opus of the same name. The science fiction series was inspired by “Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came,” a poem written by Robert Browning in 1855. King also cites Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, Clint Eastwood’s spaghetti westerns, and the legend of King Arthur as major influences. The Dark Tower took a circuitous route to becoming a movie. The story was originally optioned by J.J. Abrams in 2007. Ron Howard subsequently acquired the rights in 2010. However, the picture was ultimately written and directed by Nikolaj Arcel, whose A Royal Affair was nominated in 2013 for an Oscar in the Best Foreign Film category. This movie is Mr. Arcel’s first English language film, which is why he received help with the screenplay from three scriptwriters that includes Oscar winner Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind). The final production is engaging enough to establish the franchise and leave you anticipating a sequel. Very Good (HHH). Rated PG-13 for action, gun violence, and mature themes. Running time: 95 minutes. Production Studio: Sony/ Media Rights Capital/Imagine Entertainment/Weed Road. Distributor: Sony Pictures. —Kam Williams

Featuring Abundance of Talent All Over the Field, PU Women’s Soccer Looking to Wear Down Foes
ean Driscoll is facing a problem this fall in guiding the Princeton University women’s soccer team, but don’t expect any of his foes to be sympathetic. With an abundance of skilled performers at his disposal, it isn’t going to be easy for Princeton head coach Driscoll to figure out the best way to deploy his resources. “We have a lot of good players; I think we are probably two-deep at every position on the field which I haven’t been able to say until now,” said Driscoll, who is entering his third season at the helm of the program and led the Tigers to an overall 10-4-3 record and 2-3-2 in Ivy League play in 2016. “We have a lot of depth and that has to be our focus, utilizing as many of the players as we can to stay fresh and to also put other teams in situations where we are constantly staying a little more fresh perhaps than they are. Our mentality in terms of rotation of players may slightly change from what it was, certainly from two years ago when we basically played 14-16 players. We have a lot more ability to rotate this year.” At forward, junior star and top returning scorer Mimi Asom (9 goals and 1 assist in 2016) boasts a lot of finishing ability. “Mimi is the most focused I have seen her, she
has a very good mentality about her right now,” said Driscoll, noting that sophomore Courtney O’Brien, sophomore Abby Givens (3 goals, 3 assists), junior Sam McDonough (4 assists), and senior Beth Stella should all see time up top. “Mimi’s fitness level is the highest it has been. Her overall focus, which is the most important for her, is very high. She is a very good player.” Princeton features a very good player to trigger the midfield in senior Vanessa Gregoire (3 goals, 4 assists). “Vanessa has big time potential; I expect a huge year from her in terms of overall quality, her movement, and her endurance,” asserted Driscoll. “She looks fantastic.” Driscoll has a lot of quality options in the midfield with such players as sophomore Tomi Kennedy (3 goals, 1 assist), sophomore Sophia Gulati (1 assist), senior Alessia Azermadhi (1 assist), and sophomore Emily Hilliard (1 assist) along with a pair of freshmen, Olivia Kane and Carolyne Davidson. “It is deep, there are going to be a lot of battles,” said Driscoll in assessing his midfield. “A lot of kids who have had the luxury of being the best at their position are now going to have to really fight, which is good competition. If nothing else, it is pushing to make them better and giving
us a better rotation.” Senior standouts Natalie Larkin (1 goal, 2 assists) and Mikaela Symanovich (2 assists) will battle hard on the back line. “They are the epitome of work rate, fitness, and competitive nature,” said Driscoll. “They are both tireless workers. There is no way to duplicate them when they leave next year, there will be no replacing that kind of mentality. They both blow away the fitness test. Every year, they are the top two.” While Larkin and Symanovich form a special one-two combination on defense, Princeton is expecting a number of other players to shore up the unit. “Katie Pratt-Thompson, a senior, will be in there and you have sophomore Olivia Sheppard, a standout Canadian national team player at center back,” added Driscoll. “We also have two freshman, Lucy Rickerson and Tatum Gee, who have done really, really well.” The Tigers boast four goalkeepers in sophomore Natalie Grossi, junior Noelani Kong-Johnson, senior Gudrun Valdis Jonsdottir, and sophomore Kelli Calhoun. Grossi got most of the work last year in her freshman season, starting all 17 games with a 0.93 goals against average and four shutouts. “Natalie looks good, she has done well; Noelani
has also done well,” said Driscoll. “We are expecting Gudrun and Kelli to make a little bit of a push here. Right now, I would say Natalie and Noelani have been the top two but I do expect the other ones to make it a competitive battle. We have a good group of goalkeepers, they are working hard.” With Princeton going 1-32 in its last six games last fall after a 9-1-1 start, Driscoll is looking for his 2017 team to push harder at both ends of the field. “I think we need to make sure that we don’t make any game-changing mistakes,” said Driscoll. “We had some innocuous mistakes where we put ourselves in trouble last year on occasion. We need a greater focus and attention to detail on our defense as a unit. The bottom line is we need to identify where we can manufacture goals as a team. Everyone is going to be involved in helping us score.” Based on what he has seen in the preseason, Driscoll is confident that the squad can manufacture a lot of wins this fall. “I would say that we are very excited about the group of kids that we have, the chemistry, and the enthusiasm,” said Driscoll. “We look forward to seeing how things go. We have a lot of young kids and we also have some good leadership. It is a really enjoyable group to work with.” With Princeton hosting Monmouth (0-1-1) in its sea-
KICK-OFF TIME: Princeton University women’s soccer player Natalie Larkin prepares to kick the ball upfield last season.

(Photo by Frank Wojciechowski) son opener on August 25, Driscoll knows his squad will have to work hard to beat the Hawks. “Monmouth is a very hardworking, blue collar mentality team with tremendous athleticism and a lot of success,” said Driscoll, whose squad will be playing at Villanova on August 27 before heading south for contests against Atlantic Coast Conference foes North Carolina State on September 1 and
at Wake Forest on September 3. “They are coming off a tie and a loss this past weekend. They will be very hungry and fired up. It will be a good game; it is a cross state rivalry. They are going to be excited to play against us and our team needs to be equal to the task. It is opening night so I expect us to work extremely hard and have a good start.” —Bill Alden

Tyler Lussi was thrilled to be selected 21st overall by the Portland Thorns in National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) Draft this past January but she knew it didn’t guarantee anything on the pro level. Instead, former Princeton University women’s soccer standout Lussi had to fly out to Portland days after her college graduation in June for an extended tryout to earn a spot on the team. “I was out here for about two and a half weeks on trial; I hadn’t signed yet when I got here,” said Lussi, a four-time All-Iv y League performer who graduated as Princeton’s all-time goals leader (53) and points leader (122). “I had to prove to the coaching staff and the team that I am going to bring a whole other level of intensity and work rate. For those two and half weeks, I just had to work really hard and prove to the coach that I can make the team.” Lussi apparently proved her point and made the team. “I was signed on June 30th,” said Lussi. “It was definitely a great feeling and I was now officially on the team.” Not was t i ng a ny t i m e to make an impact, Lussi helped the Thorns pull out a 1-1 draw at Houston in her debut on July 8 and then scored the winning goal in a 2-1 win over Houston as the teams met for a rematch on July 22. In her first appearance, Lussi came off the
bench looking to spark the Thorns. “At halftime, they told me I was going to go on; at that point we were down 1-0,” recalled Lussi. “I had to go on with full confidence. Ever y time I play, I step on with confidence but at this point I had to do everything I could to put their back line under pressure and make sure to bring that work rate, create chances, and try to help the team. We ended up with a tie but in a hard away game, it was definitely a stepping stone for what the team needed.” Two weeks later, Lussi was in the starting lineup for a rematch with Houston and tallied a 39th-minute goal that ended up being the game-winner in Portland’s 2-1 victory over Houston. “It was definitely something I will never forget, scoring my first professional goal like when I scored my first college goal freshman year,” said Lussi. “E ach m emb er of t he Thorns team has the responsibility to do all they can to have the ball go into the back of the net. Helping with that effort is a real privilege and a great responsibility to have. Having 18,000 rock and celebrate that goal is like nothing I have ever experienced.” While Lussi scored a lot of goals at Princeton, she makes it clear that her record output was the product of a group effort. “It is a huge honor but I could not have done it without every one of my team-
PROFESSIONAL APPROACH: Tyler Lussi dribbles the ball up the field this summer in her debut campaign for the Portland Thorns of the National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL).

mates in all my four years,” said the slender 5’7 Lussi, a native of Lutherville, Md. who was named the Iv y League Offensive Player of the Year and a second-team All-American in 2015 when she helped Princeton win the league title and advance to the second round of the NCAA tournament. “It is not something I did myself, it is the team that did it. I never want to look at it as I broke the record, I say the team broke this record.” Reflecting on her Princeton career, Lussi notes that she grew a lot on and off the field. “I think just maturity-wise as a person and a player, I learned to understand and work individually with different people and different teammates,” said Lussi. “It was being able to prepare myself every single day and trying to do the best I can. That didn’t just happen when I came in freshman year. It is a process.” That maturity has come in handy as Lussi has adjusted to the rigors of pro soccer. “High levels of performance and focus are necessary for every single practice and game in order to get better,” said Lussi. “I have always tried to train, recover, play, compete, and prepare myself at a professional level in college so that part of my experience was what I expected coming into this. I think the major difference for me has been the high level of analysis of not just every teammate and game performance and practice during the week but also the analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of each member of the opposing team. There are constant adjustments throughout the week and games in an attempt to gain an advantage. Professional soccer is combining the team’s best physical performance with the strategy of the evolving game.” Looking ahead to the rest of the Thorns’s season, Lussi is determined to perform at a high level. “Coming in I didn’t expect anything but I knew that just working hard and bringing my intensity and my ability to press the back line is going to show something different and help the team attack,” said Lussi. “That has always been in my mindset ever since I started playing soccer. I have always wanted to score, I have always wanted to attack. I want to bring that relentless intensity.” Lussi is hoping that her intensity takes her to the top of the soccer world. “I want to keep improving and learning from the best every day; I am playing on a team that has world class players,” said Lussi, who played for the U.S. U-23 team this March in matches against Japan, England and Norway at La Manga, Spain. “I want to play soccer as long as possible at the highest level and continue to play in the NWSL. I want to make the top U.S. team so that is where I am headed and hopefully will be.” —Bill Alden

Buoyed by Winning Gold at Maccabiah Games Issroff Eyes Bigger Role for PU Men’s Soccer Benji Issroff traveled to Israel six years ago to celebrate his bar mitzvah. This summer, Issroff, now a rising sophomore defender for the Princeton University men’s soccer team, returned to Israel as a member of the U.S. squad competing in the 2017 World Maccabiah Games and ended up enjoying another celebration as the team won the gold medal. For Issroff, making the U.S. team for the competition was special on many levels. “It meant quite a lot; the tournament sets up the intersection of a lot of identities of mine,” said the 6’0, 165-pound Issroff, a native of New York City who attended a tryout for the team in Philadelphia. “My Jewish heritage is very important to me and then soccer, which I devote a lot of time to, forms a big part of my life as well.” As the team trained in Israel before starting the competition on July 5, Issroff quickly sensed that the U.S. was hungry for gold. “We won the competition four years ago and we were trying to be the first team to win back-to-back Maccabiah Games for soccer,” said Issroff, who was joined on the team by Princeton goalie Josh Haberman ’17 and Tiger student assistant coach David Goldstein ’17. “We always had that lofty goal and ambition; obviously you hope you have the talent but you can’t be sure everything is going to fall your way. That first week definitely helped us become more accustomed to each other and get to know each other’s tendencies.” Although the U.S. fell 1-0 to Great Britain in the second game of pool play at the competition, Issroff believes the setback may have benefitted the squad in the long run. “In any competition, not everything is going to go your way; part of winning and eventually becoming a champion is learning to deal with adversity,” said Issroff. “Against Great Britain we had a very close game, they
scored in the last seven minutes off a set piece. It was obviously a bit unfortunate and not how we would have preferred it to go but having that bit of adversit y made us more resilient as we progressed through the tournament.” Rebounding with a 2-0 win over Australia in final game of pool play, Issroff and his teammates never looked back after that. “It got our confidence going, it was quite a comfortable win against Australia,” said Issroff. “We felt pretty dominant that whole match and that gave us conf idence and jump-started our run.” Af ter beating Ur uguay 2-1 in the quar terfinals, the U.S. had to sweat out a tough match as it edged toward host Israel 2-1 in the semis. “That was a big test, they were the toughest competition we faced by a wide margin,” said Issroff, noting that the Israel squad was comprised of players from the country’s Under-20 national team. “We were a goal down to them but fortunately for us, they had gone into extra time the day before and won in penalties so they had some tired legs. As the game progressed, that really helped us as they got more tired.” As a result of the hardfought win over Israel, the U.S. earned a rematch with Great Britain in the gold medal game. “We tried to deal with their height and physicality up top; they had two very big forwards and so we tried to better handle them by giving them less space when they were trying to hit long passes into those guys and then making sure that we were collecting the ball after they did,” said Issroff, recalling the team’s game plan coming into the final. “I think we had a similar mentality as we did in the group stage. We thought we just needed to execute better, be sharper, move the ball quicker. We had quite a lot of motivation to seek revenge.” Avenging the earlier de-

feat in style, the U.S. pulled away to a 3-0 win. “All the work we have been putting in really came to fruition in the end,” recalled Issroff, who played defensive midfielder for most of the tournament but moved to center back in the semis and final to help protect leads. “They got a red card pretty early in the game but we had scored in the second minute so we got off to a really fast start. I think that helped calm everyone’s nerves and really helped us concentrate on playing well.” Things weren’t as calm in the aftermath of the win for the U.S. “There was a fireworks display after our game,” said Issroff. “Standing there with all the fireworks and our achievement and letting it sink in was quite surreal.” Sharing the experience with fellow Princetonians Haberman and Goldstein made the achievement even more meaningful for Issroff. “They are both people that I greatly admire,” said Issroff. “I was rooming with Josh throughout the entire experience so I had a lot of time with him. After their last year at Princeton, it meant a great deal to me to be in their company for one last competition. It was also quite fun.” As he looks ahead to his sophomore season at Princeton, Issroff is looking to utilize some of the main things he gained from the Maccabiah competition. “It really gives me quite a bit of confidence and hopefully I can try to bring that back to the team as a whole,” said Issroff. “I learned about resilience and character that I would also like our team to embody next season. It just helps me bridge the gap to stay sharp and fit and mentally acute.” With Princeton coming off a 2016 season that saw it go 7-7-3 overall and 1-3-3 Ivy League, suffering three onegoal losses in league play, Issroff is confident the Tigers have what it takes to come through in the close ones. “The Ivy League is always a really competitive league and I think the physical nature of the Maccabiah will help me adjust this year,” said Issroff, who played in all 17 games last fall and made four starts, picking up an assist in a 4-1 win over Rutgers. “We had a lot of close games last year that didn’t quite fall our way. We will have a very young team and hopefully we will be able to turn some of those games around and win.” Issroff, for his part, believes he can help guide the squad’s young players. “I would like to try to have more of a leadership role on the team,” said Issroff. “Now that I am past my freshman year, I think I am able to contribute more. We had a lot of great seniors last year who were quite big contributors to the team and hopefully I can step up and help fill some of that void.” —Bill Alden
PU Men’s Hockey Star Teves Had Special Summer, Getting to Skate for Hometown Calgary Flames J o s h Te v e s h a s l o n g d r e a m e d ab o u t p l ay i n g for his hometown Calgary Flames. “I am a big Flames fan,” said Teves, a 6’0, 180-pound native of the western Canada city. “I had a mock Stanley Cup with the Flames logo on it.” After a superb sophomore season last winter for the Princeton University men’s hockey team, star defenseman Teves got to hit the ice for the National Hockey League’s Flames this summer as he took part in the team’s Development Camp. “It was a pretty amazing experience to put on the logo for the first time, even if it is a practice jersey,” said Teves, who tallied four goals and 21 assists in 2016-17 for the Tigers on the way to earning First-Team All-Ivy League honors. “To have my friends and family in the city be able to come and watch some of the ice times and that sort of thing was pretty special as well. They don’t get a lot of opportunity to see me in the flesh on the ice.” Teves and his Princeton teammates enjoyed a special campaign last winter as the Tigers went 15-16-3 and advanced to the ECAC Hockey quarterfinals after going 5-23-3 in the 2015-16 season and getting swept by Clarkson in a best-of-three ECACH opening round series. “It just took a couple of years for the coaching staff to get their message and culture ingrained into us,” said Teves. “Our first year, we lost a ton of games by one goal and we were just on the edge. I think it was positive this year to see some of that success and have a little taste of it and keep us just wanting more.” Teves attributed his individual success in his sophomore campaig n to t he squad’s collective improvement. “I can thank the team for that; we had a lot of confidence as a team,” said Teves. “When the rest of your team is feeling good, you are going to feel good as well so I think that was huge. Coming into my second year, I felt more comfortable with the team, the guys around me, and the rest of the league. I could try to make some more plays and jump in a bit more offensively so that was positive.” It gave Teves a comfortable feeling to be skating with teammate and fellow rising junior Max Veronneau at the Calgary camp. “It was good to have Max there; he had just been coming from the Vegas camp,” said Teves. “He had a little more experience than I did so it was nice to go through that with him.” With a schedule packed with practices, on-ice drills, and meetings, Teves gained some valuable experience at

the Calgary camp. “The coaches were out there, both from the NHL club and some of the AHL (American Hockey League) c o a c h e s a s w e l l ,” s a i d Teves. “It was a lot of feedback; they could get a closer look at you and give you some personal advice. That was really helpful. We did two practices and a scrimmage at the end. It was pretty neat, there were quite a few fans who came out for the scrimmage and a lot of little kids who play for organizations I had played for.” Being on the ice with the Flames whetted Teves’s appetite to play pro hockey someday. “You are surrounded by first round draft picks or guys that play in the American Hockey League and some that have played games in the NHL,” said Teves. “To feel like you fit in that group and you belong there really helps the confidence. I think that is going to help
me moving forward. There is a lot of information, there is a lot of teaching going on and I just tried to sponge it all up as far as all of the different meetings and the advice on or off the ice.” Looking ahead to the upcoming season at Princeton, Teves has a lot of confidence in the Tigers and their prospects. “We need to have our goals set high; the ECAC championship is not out of the question,” said Teves. “We need to have lofty goals; I think we can accomplish them. A tournament berth would come with that and that would be a huge step for our program.” Teves, for his part, plans to step up even more as a junior. “I think that part of the game will take care of itself as we succeed as a team,” said Teves, reflecting on his individual goals. “I am just going to work hard to play a bigger role. Coming into my third year, I want to play more of a leadership role, helping the younger guys and helping to lead our team.” —Bill Alden

Signs With Greek Pro Team
Former Princeton University women’s basketball standout Blake Dietrick ’15 will continue her professional career with AO Dafni Agioy Dimitrioy of the Greece League for the 2017-18 season. Dietrick played for the Bendigo Spirit of the Australian National Basketball League last season. The Spirit went 13-11, finishing sixth in the league, one game out of a playoff spot. The former 2015 Ivy League Player of the Year averaged 7.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, 2.4 assists per game on 47.7 percent shooting in 24 games for the Spirit. Earlier in the 2016-17 season, Dietrick had become the second Ivy League player ever to make a WNBA roster as she made the Seattle Storm’s opening night roster. A two-time first-team AllIv y selection, Dietrick is ranked fourth on the Princeton charts in three-pointers made (210) and three-point shooting percentage (.395). She is four t h in assists (346) and 12th in scoring (1,233). During her senior campaign, Dietrick helped the team to one of the greatest seasons in Ivy League history. The Tigers had an unblemished 30-0 regular season, won its fifth Iv y League title in six years, and won the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament game. The guard averaged careerhighs in points (15.1), assists (4.9), and rebounds (4.5) per game en route to Associated Press and WBCA Honorable Mention All-America honors.
US Lacrosse Honoring Sailer
US Lacrosse recently announced that it is going to name the walking path at its headquarters in Sparks, Md., the “Chris Sailer Trail,” in honor of the National Hall of Fame and Princeton University women’s lacrosse coach. The Sailer Trail will be formally dedicated October 21 as part of the Princeton Invitational at US Lacrosse, a four-team fall-ball event that will include the Tigers, Fairfield, Villanova, and a team from the New York Athletic Club. “In addition to leading her teams to great success on the field, Chris Sailer has been a tremendous advocate and representative of the sport during her career,” said Steve Stenersen, CEO of US Lacrosse. “We’re delighted and proud to recognize her at our facility.” I n h er 31 s e as on s at Princeton, Sailer has compiled a record of 386-152, guiding the Tigers to three NCAA championships, 11 national semifinal appearances, 24 NCA A tournament appearances, and 13 Ivy League titles. S a i l e r’s h o n o r c o m e s thanks in part to the support of former players. In conjunction with the dedication of the walking path that surrounds Tierney Field (named for former Princeton and current Denver men’s head coach Bill Tierney) at US Lacrosse Headquarters, the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association has selected 11 former collegiate coaches to cel-
ebrate as trailblazers of the game for their exceptional work advancing women’s lacrosse and the coaching profession during the Title IX era. E ach of t he follow ing IWLCA Trailblazers will be recognized with a plaque a l o n g t h e S a i l e r Tr a i l : Pat Genovese, Tina Sloan Green, Caroline Hausserman, Kathy Heinze, Carole Kleinfelder, Gillian Rattray, Sue Stahl, Sue Tyler, Lanetta Ware, Marge Watson, and Judy Wolstenholme. Each began coaching collegiate women’s lacrosse in the 1960s or 1970s, helping to lay the foundation for the modern game. Their love for the sport, passion for teaching, and dedication to coaching were driving forces in advancing women in collegiate athletics. The IWLCA Board of Directors worked with US Lacrosse to create this honor to preserve their legacy and ensure that future generations will not forget their contributions to women’s lacrosse.
Princeton Lax Grad Hirsch To Coach at Alma Mater
Former Princeton University men’s lacrosse stalwart Jeremy Hirsch ’10 is coming home to join the coaching staff of the program. Hirsch, the sole captain of the 2010 Tigers, has been named the defensive coordinator for the men’s lacrosse team, Princeton head coach Matt Madalon said last week. He comes to Princeton after spending the last four years as the defensive coordinator at Hobart, working under former Tiger assistant coach Greg Raymond. “We’re thrilled to have Jeremy Hirsch join our staff,” said Madalon. “As an alum, he has a great understanding of the history and tradition of Princeton lacrosse, as well as a great respect for and loyalty to the University
and its mission. He has done an outstanding job at Hobart, helping that program to national prominence and the NCAA tournament. We can’t wait to have him get started working with our guys.” Hirsch was the coordinator for a man-down defensive unit that led Division I in 2016, when Hobart won the Northeast Conference tournament and advanced to the NCAA tournament. Hobart defeated Bryant and St. Joe’s, two teams averaging a combined 23 goals per game, in the 2016 NEC tournament and allowed just 13 total goals in the two games. The Statesmen then won t he N EC reg u lar- season championship this past season and reached the conference tournament final. Hirsch was a three-year starter for the Tigers as a defens ema n. He help e d P r inceton to t he NCA A tournament three times, including the quarterfinals his junior year, and played on Ivy League championship teams as a junior and senior. Princeton also won the inaugural Ivy League tournament when Hirsch was a senior. After graduating with a degree in history, Hirsch began his coaching career at Malvern Prep in 2012 before getting his first college coaching position at Hampton - Sydney, where he coached the defense and was the program’s strength and conditioning coach. “I am excited to return to a program I care deeply about in my new role as an assistant coach and defensive coordinator,” said Hirsch.
“I would like thank Matt Madalon for providing me with this unique opportunity to join his staff and to coach with the Princeton lacrosse program. It was ingrained in me while a player for Princeton that playing great defense is synonymous with Princeton Lacrosse. I’m eager to build upon that tradition as a coach. I look for ward to digging in at Princeton and working with the student-athletes and can’t wait to get started.” Other than former longtime volunteer assistant coach Br yce Chase ’63, Hirsch is the first Princeton alum to be a member of the coaching staff since Matt Striebel in 2005.
PU Hoops Standout Hummer Signs With Russian Team
Former Princeton University men’s basketball star Ian Hummer, the 2013 Ivy League Player of the Year and the second-leading scorer in program history, has signed to play with Avtodor Saratov in Russia. H u m m e r ’13 , a 6’ 7, 225-pound forward from Vienna, Va., has played in Finland, Germany, and most recently Turkey since finishing a Princeton career that saw him earn three All-Ivy League honors, including first-team honors as a junior and a senior. His 1,625 career points and 625 career field goals made are each second only to Bill Bradley ’65 (2,503 points, 856 field goals). His 725 rebounds are fifth all-time and his 308 assists were fourth when he graduated and are now sixth. Hummer is the fourth Ti-
ger alum to ink a pro deal over the summer, along with Spencer Weisz ’17 (Israel), T.J. Bray ’14 (Greece) and Steven Cook ’17 (Estonia). Avtodor Saratov is in Russia’s VTB league, the top level of professional basketball in the country. The team plays in the town of Saratov, about 500 miles southeast of Moscow.

After Growing Into a Star for PHS Boys’ Soccer, Goldsmith Primed to Begin Vassar College Career Over the course of his four seasons with Princeton High boys’ soccer team, Andrew Goldsmith grew into a leader and a top scorer. In his senior campaign last fall, he served as a cocaptain of the squad with Alex Ratzan and contributed 17 goals from his center midfield spot as PHS went 17-1-2 and shared the Mercer County Tournament title with the Pennington School. “I would say the biggest thing is my confidence on the ball,” said Goldsmith, reflecting on the progress he made over his PHS career. “In my f resh man year play ing w it h s en iors, it would be like if someone passes me the ball, that is fine. As I kept getting older and got more confident, I went to go get t he ball because I wanted it and I wanted make an impact on the game. With the confidence, I was able to make plays and do things for the team that I wasn’t able to do my freshman year.” Now, Goldsmith is looking to help a new team as he is currently undergoing preseason training in preparation for his freshman season with the Vassar College men’s soccer program. For Goldsmith, the road to Vassar began at the end of his freshman year when he started playing at college showcases and e-mailing coaches. He ended up narrowing his search to Division 3 programs, including
several New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) schools, before deciding that Vassar was the right place for him. “The soccer piece of it was a big deal because I clicked with the head coach, Andy Jennings, who is a really experienced guy,” said Goldsmith. “He has coached the U20 English national team. The assistant coach Ross Macklin just played at Vassar, he graduated few years ago. He was a really good player, a center mid, and I made a good relationship with them. I really clicked with the guys on the team well; it was a really good fit. Another reason I chose Vassar was the quality of the soccer they play and how much they emphasized keeping the ball on the floor and playing good soccer.” Off the field, Goldsmith s aw special qualit ies in Vassar as well. “Maybe the most important thing is the collaborative environment and the community feel you get the second you arrive on campus,” said Goldsmith. “Everyone at Vassar wants you to strive and wants you to succeed.” Since the end of his PHS c a r e e r, G o l d s m i t h h a s worked hard to enhance his chances of succeeding at the next level. “During the winter, spring and even a little bit in the summer, I had training sessions with Stronghold SC,” said Goldsmith, referring to his club team.
“Mostly it has just been training on my own with a few guys. Alex Ratzan and I have been training very hard this summer. I have b e en play i ng w it h g uys like Chris Harla, Pete Luther, Aidan Passannante, and Maxime Hoppenot. I have also been following the [Vassar] conditioning packet pretty strictly.” Even before hitting the field at Vassar, Goldsmith had developed a bond with the guys with whom he will be playing. “We have a group chat; we talk a lot with each other on fitness stuff and what we should work on,” said Goldsmith. “That is something I have been really happy with. The captains have reached out to us ever since we got into the school. They have been really nice, always offering to help. They have connected us with all of the other guys on the team. I am really excited to get on campus and actually meet everyone in person.” With preseason practices having started on August 19, Goldsmith is thrilled to finally reach his objective of playing college soccer. “I have been looking forward to this since this has been my goal for a while now,” said Goldsmith. “I have been working hard to do this and my family has helped me a lot. I am excited to accomplish it but I really haven’t accomplished much yet as I still need to prove myself once
I get there. That is what I am most excited for, to play at the next level and really push myself and see what I can do for the team and how I can prove myself at the next level.” As he enters his debut c ampaig n, G oldsm it h is looking to push hard for t he Brewers, no mat ter what role he ultimately assumes. “I am just looking to get on the field ; they said I would be at center mid or outside back, primarily center mid,” said Goldsmith, who could see his first college action when Vassar hosts Western Connecticut State on September 1 in its season opener. “That is where I am hoping for, but I would be happy playing anywhere to help out the team in any way possible.” —Bill Alden

After playing a reserve role as a freshman when the Mountain Hawks went 7-8-3, Maziarz broke into the starting lineup at center back last fall, fortifying a defense that started the season with eight straight shutouts as Lehigh went on to an 115-2 campaign. “We finally made it to the Patriot League playoffs for the first time in a few years so that was a big step for us,” said Maziarz, reflecting on the team’s improvement in a season that ended when the Mountain Hawks fell 1-0 to Lafayette in double overtime in the league quarterfinals. “We set goals to achieve every year and the ultimate goal is to be Patriot League champions. There are many steps you have to take to make it there and our first step was making it to the playoffs which we finally did so we feel like we are making progress towards that ultimate goal.” Maziarz had to take steps to get on the field after making nine appearances off the bench in her debut campaign. “Freshman year was kind of hard for me, I didn’t get to play in many games,” said Maziarz, who is joined on the Lehigh squad by former Hun teammate Jess Sacco. “I learned from the experience; I had to learn to fill my role in a different way. It was work harder practicing and learn from the older girls. I worked on getting better at practices and doing everything I could to improve to make it out on the field. After becoming a starter at center back last fall, Maziarz continued to get better and better. “As the season went on, my biggest improvement was my positioning in the field,” said Maziarz. “I am used to the ball work and the passing. I am pretty accurate with that stuff but as far as the positioning, I had a lot to learn. Just because in college, it is a different speed of play and I can’t be constantly going up the field. I was used to that and a lot of times the play was faster and I was behind on things. I think the biggest thing for me was through freshman year until now, I have learned where I need to be in reference to the game.” The defensive unit as a whole got on the same page
over the course of the 2016 campaign. “Our goalie [Sam Miller] communicated ver y well with us,” said Maziarz. “Defensively, she is always telling us where to be on the field directing us as much as she can. She sees the play very well and if she thinks things are too hectic and needs to slow down, she tells us. I think, positioningwise, we are just very connected throughout the back line. I had more of a holding role defensively. The other center back likes to get forward a lot more so we really balance well for each other as far as going and staying and just balancing out the field.” T h e M o u n t a i n H aw k s showed their balance at both ends of the field in a riveting 3-2 victory over eventual Patriot League champion Bucknell in late October. “I think Bucknell was huge for us because we went into the game knowing how well they had been doing,” said Maziarz. “It forced us to bring our A-game and all of our forwards and defensemen were on point. Our goalkeeper made this huge, phenomenal save in the first half on a shot that could have drastically changed the game. Every single player on our team was locked in and focused and that was what contributed to it.” Having focused this summer on recovering from a knee injury, Maziarz was happy to be back with her teammates in early August to start preseason training. “The biggest contributing factor to last year was the closeness of the team,” said Maziarz. “We all got along very well and that correlates directly onto the field. If you trust your teammates, you are playing for your teammates. That is what is going to drive you further and further. Right now we are just focusing on continuing to build those relationships. On the field, we are trying to do the little things as best
as we can because once you get the little things, then everything else will fall into place.” Last Friday, Maziarz and the Lehigh defense took care of the little things as the Mountain Hawks started the season with a 0-0 draw t h r o u g h t w o ov e r t i m e s against visiting Monmouth in its season opener. “We are just taking it day by day, right now we are trying to win as many games as we can and take it to the Patriot League,” said Maziarz. “Once we are in league play, we want to step up our game even further. We have got to make that jump even bigger. Last year, we played well in the beginning but we need to ramp it up one more notch for the playoffs.” —Bill Alden

Andrew M. Sheldon Andrew M. Sheldon, a loving husband, proud father, and energetic grandfather, passed away on June 23, 2017 at his home in Old Town Alexandria, Va., surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Linda; his daughter Casey Seidenberg, her husband, Nick, and their children, Henry, Teddy, and Pippa; and his son, Christopher Sheldon, his wife, Eileen, and their children, Buchanan and Talbot. He is loved and missed by so many. Andy had a peaceful and patient nature, a desire to constantly learn and grow, and a genuine love for family. He was deeply moved and inspired by the golden mean — symmetry, proportion, and harmony — and these principles shaped both his creative work and his life. Born in 1944 in Little Rock, Arkansas, Andy grew up in Buffalo, N.Y. and Princeton, where he ultimately met his wife, Linda, and raised his family with much joy. He began his own architecture business, Andrew M. Sheldon Architect, in 1975, and was passionate about designing beautiful spaces for his clients, including houses from Mexico to Nantucket and many places in between. He also founded Sheldon Designs in 1975, providing economical, easy-to-build blueprints for small houses, farmhouses, and cabins, becoming an early contributor to the “tiny house” trend. Andy received his bachelor of arts and bachelor of architecture degrees from R ice Universit y in 1966 and 1967, respectively, and also studied architecture at Pratt University. Andy served in the Army from 1968 to 1970, including a tour of duty in Vietnam. He worked for both small and large architecture firms in Princeton before starting his own firm. Andy received the Historical Society of Princeton’s Historic Preservation Award in both 2003 and 2004, and his architecture has been featured in many publications including The Washington Post. Andy also served on the Princeton YMCA Board of Directors from 1986 to 1994, and on the Princeton Site Plan Review Advisory Board from 1990 to 1995. Andy enjoyed being near the water, taking his grand-

Leonard Baum Leonard ( Lenny, fondly known to many as Opa) Baum died unexpectedly at the age of 86 on August 14, 2017 at his home in Princeton. Lenny was born on Aug 23, 1931 i n B r o o k l y n , N.Y. to parents Sophia Fuderman and Morris Baum (who were themselves first cousins ). He married his high school sweetheart Julia Lieberman in 1953, the year he graduated Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude in mathematics, from Harvard University. He received a PhD in mathematics from Harvard in 1958. He worked for a couple of years at the University of Chicago before moving to Princeton to work at the Institute for Defense Analysis (IDA) — a Defense Department think tank which specialized in cryptography. Lenny’s affiliation with the IDA in Princeton spanned 1959 through 1978. He wrote over 100 internal papers there and is responsible for what has become the motto of the IDA: “No idea is bad. A bad idea is good. A good idea is
terrific.” To his coworkers, he was a “renaissance man” who was exceptional at all aspects of problem solving, was dogged — never giving up until he solved a problem, and was also a patient mentor and teacher whose influence lives on. Despite spending the bulk of his research career in a classified environment, Lenny published 11 refereed articles which have received a combined 9,000 citations and continue to be cited to this day. Lenny’s public scientific legacy includes the BaumWelch algorithm and coau t h or s h i p of t h e f i r s t proof, published in 1967, of its mathematical underpinnings. This algorithm directly enabled the first effective speech recognition systems. Today, 50 years later, this work remains at the center of these systems — while its mathematical and algorithmic descendants and other relatives, have impacted many fields from genomics to weather prediction to finance. After leaving the IDA, Lenny teamed up with Jim Simons to apply his mathematical modeling to the financial markets. He retired early, legally blind, seeing with only his rods, having lost all his cones to a dystrophy, but that didn’t stop him from travelling the world over, visiting many exotic places. He continued to trade for himself very successfully, often taking very contrarian positions. An avid Go player, deep lover of science, and seeker of truth, he continued working on math
literally up until his death, spending the night before he died reading new math papers on prime numbers. Like his father before him, he was a great walker, walking four miles a day up until his last few months. He was a loving husband, father, and devoted grandfather. The grandchildren loved his “Opa Stories.” Lenny was generous of spirit, deeply ethical, and always kind. In addition to his devotion to family, Lenny, and his late wife Julia, made his friends feel like family. He will be deeply missed by the many who were touched by his life, including his companion of the last decade, Maxine Lampert, with whom he shared many adventures. Lenny is survived by his two children — Eric Burton Baum currently living in Princeton (spouse Chaitra Keshav Baum ), and Stefi Alison Baum currently living in Winnipeg, Manitoba (spouse Christopher O’Dea). Lenny is also survived by eight grandchildren: Eric’s children (Nathan, Noah, Julia, and Asha), and Stefi’s children (Connor, Kieran, Brennan, and Annelies). He is predeceased by the love of his life, Julia Lieberman (Feb 22, 1999). The funeral was August 15, 2017 graveside at noon at the Princeton cemetery, followed by Shiva.

6 TIPS TO SAVE FOR YOUR DOWN PAYMENT Need some solid ways to save for your down payment? Here are six to start: 1. 2.
3. 4. 5. 6.
Know how much you’ll need. It’s kind of hard to hit a target when you don’t know for sure what it is. Have a target date. When you have a purchase date in mind, it’s easier to divide the amount from the previous step so you know how much to save per week, month or paycheck. Open a dedicated savings account. A separate account avoids “accidentally” spending money you’ve already stashed away for a down payment. Make savings automatic. Automate savings with every paycheck or at a regular time interval so you don’t even have to think about it. Save your windfalls. Tax refund? Bank it. Overtime? Ditto. Birthday cash - that’s a harder call, but maybe try to save some of it. Make a budget and stick to it. Pack your lunches, drink tap water, walk when you can to save gas, cook from scratch, cancel your cable - there are plenty of ways to save money. Search the internet and get started. Don’t forget to bank the savings.
Finally, remember your goal. Keeping that home in mind at all times takes the pain out of saving and helps you stay motivated.
