The 2012 Sustainable Princeton
Leadership Awards, held Jan. 23
at the Princeton Public Library,
served as the kick-off to the annu-
al Princeton Environmental Film
The ceremony, hosted by
Princeton Mayor Liz Lempert
and Matt Wasserman, chairman
of Sustainable Princeton and the
Princeton Environmental Com-
mission, honored nine Princeton
residents and community mem-
“Cohosting this event with the
mayor clearly says we’re serious
about these initiatives,” said
Wasserman. “It’s not just a grass-
roots organization, and we’re not
just a bunch of tree huggers. This
is something that is front and cen-
ter on the mayor’s agenda. It’s not
just a passing fad. With Liz being
there, that message comes across
loud and clear.”
The 2012 honorees were Dr.
Stephanie Chorney, a citizen ac-
tivist; John Emmons and Martha
Friend, science teachers; Robert
Hrabchak, Princeton Day School
student; Jack Morrison, presi-
dent of the JM Group and owner
of Nassau Seafood; Stu Orefice,
Princeton University Dining
Services Director; Bill Sachs, resi-
dent tree expert; and William
Wolfe, architect.
Hrabchak is a Princeton Day
School student who designed and
built his own electric car.
“It just goes to show that it’s
great to have someone who
spends hundreds of thousands of
dollars installing a solar paneled
roof – we love that,” Wasserman
said. “But we want to acknowl-
edge the people, especially kids,
who say, ‘OK, how can I make a
difference, even at my level?’ We
want to reward things like that so
other kids say, ‘wow, I’ve got
ideas.’ It propagates the thinking
we’re trying to instill in the com-
This year, for the first time, a
resident was honored with a Sus-

A task force led by Council
President Bernie Miller was
formed this month to review the
zoning requirements and ordi-
nances that apply to the former
University Medical Center of
The task force met for the first
time on Jan. 17, and again on Jan.
“We’re looking to do two phas-
es of work,” Miller said. “The
first phase focuses almost exclu-
sively on the residential use part
of the ordinance. A lot of work
went into the existing ordinance,
and now we need to look at it from
the perspective of the consolidat-
ed community, and not just the
perspective of the Borough.”
At the Jan. 22 meeting, Miller
told the other members of the
task force that he wanted to focus
the proceedings on the interests
of the community.
“This first phase should be to
clarify, and solidify that the ordi-
nance represents what the consol-
idated community is looking for
in what is considered the residen-
tial part of the tract,” Miller said.
“Then, if it’s necessary and time

Grace they decided to go above
and beyond the usual award,”
Wasserman said. “She’s not being
honored for a specific project, but
every environmental issue that’s
come up, Grace has been there.
Either as a member of the com-
mission, a volunteer or just a car-
ing resident, she is just constant-
ly, continuously either leading the
effort or there in the background
providing information and shar-
ing her experience. She’s helping
Princeton realize its sustainabili-
ty goals.”
Nominations for the Sustain-
able Princeton Leadership
Awards began in November. The
Princeton Environmental Com-
mission asked community mem-
bers to nominate peers they be-
lieved had made a difference in
the community’s push toward a
sustainable future.
According to the Sustainable
Princeton website, the nomina-
tions were seeking individuals
who represented “Princeton’s
best, brightest and greenest busi-
nesses, residents, teachers, school
administrators, government em-
ployees, religious leaders and any
others that are leading the way to-
ward a sustainable Princeton.”
Nominations were due no later
than Dec. 21, and the winners
were announced on Jan. 17. The
finalists were chosen by a volun-
teer review team comprised of
representatives from each area of
Sustainable Princeton began
as a partnership between the New
Jersey Sustainability State Insti-
tute and the Princeton Environ-
mental Commission.
The current goals of the com-
mission are to reduce energy gen-
erated by fossil fuels by 20 percent
in Princeton by 2020, and to
reduce waste by 50 percent by
“The waste goal was a five-year
plan set last year,” said Wasser-
man. “We have a curbside com-
post program in place, we’re
doing better with recycling down-
town, and we’ve been talking to
the university about partnering
to do something really big in town
with machines called organic di-
gesters. It’s an audacious goal. It’s
a goal that’s supposed to scare
you a bit, but if things come to-
gether and we put all our efforts
toward this, we could achieve it.
We’re already making a measura-
ble difference.”

The annual Princeton Environ-
mental Film Festival (PEFF)
opened at the Princeton Public Li-
brary on Jan. 24.
The festival, now in its seventh
year, will span 13 days over three
weekends, closing on Feb. 10.
Susan Conlon, PEFF director,
said the format of the schedule
has changed over the years.
“We looked at our schedules
and our attendance and noticed
some trends,” she said. “Our
weekday screening times had a
lower attendance rate, and so last
year we came up with the idea to
do three long weekends, Thurs-
day through Sunday. That’s how
we’re doing it again this year.”
The 35 films being shown at the
festival range from four minutes
to feature-film length, and cover a
broad spectrum of environmen-
tal issues and topics. The theme
of the festival is “A Sense of
“We don’t come into the plan-
ning with the idea that we’re
going to have a theme,” Conlon
said. “But as we were looking at
films and films were coming in,
we realized that many of these
films do have an overriding
theme. They are connected in that
many of them come from an
angle where a certain place mat-
tered to the filmmaker or the
story or film, and they were con-
veying that. The films are about
the importance of a place – why
do people care about a place, and
how does this issue impact them
and what might they do to either
preserve or change something be-
cause it is special to them.”
Planning for the festival begins
in March, when organizers begin
acquiring films that have been
shown at other festivals as well as
accepting film submissions.
Films that address regional, na-
tional and global issues are all
This year, several of the film-
makers are from the Princeton
area, and Conlon said some of the
films are particularly pertinent to
the Princeton population.
“We have two films on Katrina
as well as climate change,” Con-
lon said. “As we were scheduling
them we thought about our own
immediate experience in New
Jersey and New York. We’ll be
holding a panel discussion after
the Katrina film talking about the
experience here, its impact and
the future.”
Many films will be prefaced or
followed by speakers or events.
The directors, producers and
filmmakers of a number of the
films will attend the screening or
speak to attendees over Skype.
Conlon said many of the events
and films are family-friendly, and
children are invited to attend.
The festival is sponsored by
Church & Dwight Co. Inc., Terra
Momo Restaurant Group and the
Whole Earth Center of Princeton.
All screenings are free and
open to the public, and doors open
30 minutes before the start of the
Conlon believes attendees will
appreciate the themes featured at
the festival, and many will be able
to relate personal experiences to
the content of the films.
“One thing that became appar-
ent through both watching these
films and our experiences here
was we realized how resilient peo-
ple are,” Conlon said. “You have
natural disasters or changes in
climate or politics or energy, but
there’s nothing defeatist. That re-
siliency is a powerful thing that
comes across in many of the
films. Ultimately people keep com-
ing back and doing whatever they
can when something matters to
them. There’s something about
these films – they reveal difficult
problems in our world, but they’re
also overwhelmingly positive.”

he problems facing the U.S.
Postal Service have been well
documented. Primarily, the
service will run out of money later
this year unless reforms are put in
Unfortunately for the Postal Service,
it’s up to Congress to make those
changes. Good luck with that. If histo-
ry is any indication, at best it can hope
for a quick fix about 30 seconds before
the clock expires.
The Postal Service is losing millions
of dollars each day. A number of fixes
had been presented, including closing
some facilities, ending Saturday deliv-
ery and getting back some of the
money that the Service has con-
tributed to future retirees’ benefits.
Problem is, legislation addressing
these and other issues died when the
new Congress was sworn in earlier
this month. Now, everything has to
start again from scratch.
Pretty much all of the ideas put
forth, and some that haven’t gained
that much notoriety, hold merit. Los-
ing Saturday service wouldn’t be such
a terrible thing. It’s probable that some
consolidation among facilities is possi-
ble. And the Service makes a good
point when it asks for a return of the
benefits money, something that is
unique to the Service.
It’s also possible to continue to mod-
ernize, finding ways to place more
services online, for example. Even
more creative: sell advertising on
postage stamps.
Whatever the bundle of solutions
eventually looks like, it’s fairly certain
that, despite talk to the contrary, Con-
gress will be in no hurry to do much of
anything. We just got past another “fis-
cal cliff” and debt-limit deadlines are
approaching quickly.
Unfortunately for the Postal Service,
and the millions of Americans who de-
pend on it, a decision probably won’t
come anytime soon.
in our opinion
Starting over
The Postal Service has a new Congress and little time before money runs out
Postal problems
The U.S. Postal Service saw legislation
to fix at least some of its problems die
when the new Congress took office.
Now it has to start all over again. Given
Congress’ penchant for dragging its
feet on just about everything, no on
should anticipate a resolution to this
issue anytime soon.
Called by Elton John “the best song-
writer on the planet,” Grammy nominee
Rufus Wainwright comes to McCarter The-
atre Center in an acoustic solo evening on
Wednesday, Feb. 6 at 7:30 p.m. with special
guest Lucy Wainwright Roche.
The son of folk singers Loudon Wain-
wright and Kate McGarrigle, and brother
of Martha Wainwright, Rufus Wainwright
has achieved his success by carving out his
own singular sound in the worlds of rock,
opera, theater, dance, and film.
Wainwright has received Juno Awards
for Best Alternative Album in 1999 and
2002 for Rufus Wainwright and Poses, re-
spectively, and nominations for his albums
Want Two (2005) and Release the Stars
He was nominated for Songwriter of the
Year in 2008 for his Release the Stars
In addition to Rufus’ musical pursuits,
he has also made his mark onscreen. He
has acted in Academy Award winner direc-
tor Deny Arcand’s film, L’Age des Tene-
bres (2007), the Merchant Ivory film
Heights (2005), and the major blockbuster
The Aviator (2004) directed by Martin
Wainwright’s catalog includes eight al-
bums and two DVDs to date, and he has ap-
peared on numerous soundtracks and com-
pilations, as well as collaborating with
artists like Elton John, David Byrne,
Rosanne Cash and Keane. His latest record-
ing, Out of the Game, his collaboration
with mega-producer Mark Ronson, re-
ceived widespread critical acclaim. His
other recordings include All Days Are
Nights: Songs for Lulu, Rufus Does Judy at
Carnegie Hall, nominated for a Grammy,
and Release The Stars went Gold in Cana-
da and the U.K.
Wainwright’s much acclaimed first
opera, titled Prima Donna, premiered at
the Manchester International Festival in
July 2009. The opera made its London
debut at Sadler’s Wells in April 2010, and
its North American debut in Toronto at the
Luminato Festival in June 2010. The work
had its US debut in February 2012 at the
Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Howard
Gilman Opera House.
In Billboard Magazine’s words, “a single
piano is all that’s needed to show off his
immense talent” – which is exactly what

Miller said the task force hopes
to present a revised ordinance to
Council by the end of January.
“We’re hoping for the end of
the month,” he said. “If not, we’ll
make the first meeting in Febru-
If Council accepts the revised
ordinance, it will be referred to
the Planning Board for comment.
It will then return to Council and
be voted on.
The task force was formed
after the Planning Board voted in
December to deny a proposal
from developer AvalonBay to con-
struct a 280-unit apartment com-
plex on the site.
The attorney for the Planning
Board will draw up findings on
the vote, and once the findings
are entered into record, Avalon-
Bay will have 45 days to appeal.
Carol Norris-Smith, vice presi-
dent of marketing and public af-
fairs for Princeton HealthCare
System, said the owners of the
site are still involved with Avalon-
“There is an existing contract
between Princeton HealthCare
System and AvalonBay,” she said.
“Its terms are confidential.”
Norris-Smith said Princeton
HealthCare Systems was un-
aware if AvalonBay intended to
“We have been told by Avalon-
Bay that they are considering all
options and have not made a deci-
sion yet,” she said.
Rich Wolff, a spokesman for
AvalonBay, said the developer
would not comment on its plans.
“It’s our policy when anything
is in front of a planning or zoning
board that we don’t comment on
the proceedings and don’t specu-
late as to what our response will
be,” Wolff said.
At the Jan. 17 meeting, the task
force began looking at the permit-
ted uses included in the ordi-
“We’ve looked at permitted
uses and have made some minor
changes,” Miller said. “We’re try-
ing to be very clear on what we
want and don’t one. One of things
there’s a lot of agreement on is no
swimming pool. The Community
Park Pool is just a few blocks
away. We also don’t want any type
of gated community, so we’re
doing what we need to do to avoid
At the Jan. 22 meeting, the task
force continued to examine per-
mitted uses, and members ques-
tioned the number of units that
should be allowed on the site.
Heidi Fichtenbaum, a resident
and member of the task force,
presented a basic plan for the site
that reduced the number of units
from 280 to 125, a number she said
better reflects the unit density of
the surrounding neighborhoods.
Task force member Gail Ull-
man felt the original number of
units was appropriate for the site.
“Reducing the units causes a
real change in potential value in
the place,” Ullman said. “This is
two blocks from downtown. This
is a place where density makes
sense. We’re not interested in
turning this into the mid-twenti-
eth century buildings around it.
This is an opportunity for a new
building – a big building, with a
lot of people in it, basically in
Downtown Princeton.”
Miller said he felt reducing the
units was an option the task force
should explore further.
“I think it’s a very interesting
exercise,” he said. “It seemed to
me a lot of what we didn’t like
about AvalonBay was there were
280 units, and there were few
ways to fit that many units with-
out looking like AvalonBay.”
Part of the original ordinance
required that a minimum 20 per-
cent of the units qualify as afford-
able housing. Ullman questioned
whether reducing the number of
units would detract from the ef-
fectiveness of the affordable
housing requirement.
“Before you reduce the number
of units by a third,” she said,
“think about the number of af-
fordable housing units that elimi-
Miller said the affordable hous-
ing requirement would remain in
the revised ordinance.
“The 20 percent affordable
housing requirement is one thing
we feel very strongly about,” he
said. “That will not change.”

The Pennington Players will
tell the heartfelt and powerful
story of Helen Keller’s triumph
over seemingly insurmountable
obstacles in William Gibson’s
play “The Miracle Worker” at
Mercer County Community Col-
lege’s Kelsey Theatre.
Performances are Fridays, Feb.
1 and 8 at 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Feb. 2
and 9 at 8 p.m.; and Sundays, Feb.
3 and 10 at 2 p.m.
Kelsey Theatre is located on
the college’s West Windsor cam-
pus, 1200 Old Trenton Road. A re-
ception with the cast and crew fol-
lows the opening night perform-
ance on Feb. 1.
“The Miracle Worker” takes
place in Alabama circa 1880,
where an illness renders 19-
month-old Helen Keller blind,
deaf, and consequently mute.
Pitied and badly spoiled by her
parents, she learns no discipline
and grows into an undisciplined,
raging child by the age of six.
Desperate, the Kellers hire Annie
Sullivan to serve as a governess
and teacher for their young
After several fierce battles,
Annie requests that the Kellers
allow her two weeks alone with
Helen. Through perseverance
and guile, Annie reaches into
Helen's world, bringing her the
gift of communication through
sign language.
"This play is a journey from
darkness to light on many levels,
and not just for Helen Keller and
Annie Sullivan, but also for the
entire cast and the audience,"
says Director Judi Parrish of
West Trenton.
“The Miracle Worker” pre-
miered on Broadway in 1959 star-
ring Patty Duke as Helen Keller
and Anne Bancroft as Annie Sul-
livan. It was later adapted into
the famous feature-length film, in
which Duke and Bancroft
reprised their roles.
The lead role of Annie Sullivan
will be played by Jennifer Nasta
Zefutie of Cranbury, with 11-year-
old Isabel Kinney, also of Cran-
bury, as Helen. Both actresses are
making their Kelsey Theatre de-
buts. They have spent many
hours learning American Sign
Language (ASL) to prepare for
their parts.
Also featured are Morgan
Petronis of Delran as Kate Keller;
Moot Davis of Hamilton as Cap-
tain Keller; Graham Mazie of
Ewing as James Keller; Laurie
Hardy of Hamilton as Aunt Ev;
Tia Brown of Lawrenceville as
Viney; Justin Saintil of West
Windsor as Percy; Isis Henderson
of Hamilton Square as Martha;
and Scott Karlin of Plainsboro as
the Doctor and Mr. Anagnos.
Students at the Perkins School
for the Blind are being played by
Amanda Banks of Princeton,
Taylor Buffa of New Egypt,
Marissa Marciano of Plainsboro,
Julia Patella of Cranbury, and
Julia Weingaertner of Princeton
Junction. Voiceover roles are
being performed by Simon

lin of Plainsboro, Rosie Karlin of

Kitty Getlik of Hamilton.
The show is produced by Bev-
erly Kuo-Hamilton of Princeton.

tion by Bryan Schendlinger of
Langhorne, PA, lighting design

10 THE PRINCETON SUN — JAN. 30-FEB. 5, 2013
The Historical Society of
Princeton invites friends and
members to the 2013 Annual
Meeting and Lewis B. Cuyler Lec-
ture, to be held at the Nassau
Club, 6 Mercer Street, on Wednes-
day, Feb. 6, at 7 p.m.
Dr. Frank Newport, long-time
Gallup Editor-in-Chief, will be the
guest speaker, presenting “The In-
sider’s Guide to America Today.”
Newport will take the audience
through a tour of the American
public in the year 2013 – from poli-
tics, to social issues, to religion, to
life satisfaction.
In addition to looking at key
trends that will affect the nation
in the years ahead, Newport will
reveal the Top Ten things about
the American public that most
people don’t know.
Gallup, founded in Princeton
by Dr. George Gallup, has been
monitoring American public
opinion continuously since 1935,
and now conducts interviews in
more than 150 countries, includ-
ing more than 350,000 interviews
with Americans on a daily basis
each year. Dr. Newport will touch
on the history of the venerable
firm, and the ways in which pub-
lic opinion research has changed
and continues to change through
the decades.
Dr. Newport’s work focuses pri-
marily on the analysis of the
American public’s views of their
elected officials, public attitudes
and behavior relating to key poli-
cy and issue areas, the economy,
religion, well-being, and indica-
tors of public mood and con-
sumer behavior.
His analyses appear on, in his blog “Polling
Matters,” in books and other pub-
lications, and on video, podcasts
and through radio and television
appearances. His most recent
book, God is Alive and Well:
The Future of Religion in Ameri-
ca, was published in December
The event is free and open to
the public, but seating is limited.
