BOE
approves
payment
to Wilson
By KATIE MORGAN
The Sun
The Princeton Board of Educa-
tion on Jan. 28 authorized a
$49,954 payment to former Super-
intendent Judith Wilson.
The payment covers sick and
vacation days Wilson accumulat-
ed prior to her retirement from
the district at the end of Decem-
ber.
Sick day accumulation ac-
counted for $15,000 of the total
payment. Board President Tim
Quinn said $15,000 is the maxi-
mum amount Wilson could be re-
imbursed for sick days.
“The payments are capped,”
Quinn said. “$15,000 is the cap on
sick time, and the rest of the
money is for unused vacation
time.”
According to Assistant Super-
intendent Lewis Goldstein, Wil-
son actually earned far more than
the sick-day cap. Her 105 accumu-
lated sick days would warrant a
payment of $92,864.

Two representatives from
Princeton’s Joint Pedestrian/Bi-
cyclist Advisory Committee gave
a presentation at the New Jersey
Bike and Walk Summit on Feb. 8.
Steve Kruse, chair of PBAC,
and Laurie Harmon, a longtime
member, prepared a presentation
titled, “Achieving Bicycle Friend-
ly Community Status.”
Kruse and Harmon filed a suc-
cessful application with the
League of American Bicyclists in
2013, securing Princeton’s status
as a “Bronze Bike Friendly Com-
munity.”
Kruse said the PBAC presenta-
tion was designed to pass on les-
sons learned through the applica-
tion process to bike friendly
groups and organizations from
municipalities interested in se-
curing bronze status.
“The presentation is about the
research and preparation we did,
and the projects we completed to
achieve the bronze status,” Kruse
said. “We hope to be able to pass
on best practices to other commu-
nities in New Jersey about how to
increase opportunities for cy-
clists and pedestrians.”
The PBAC presentation begins
by outlining the three types of bi-
cyclist the group identified in its
research.
“The first type of bicyclist is
the person who rides for leisure
or fun,” Kruse said. “The second
group is people who ride bicycles
out of necessity. These may be
children who are too young to
drive, or people who cannot af-
ford a car and need to get back
and forth to work. The third
group is bicyclists who ride by
choice. These are people who
could ride, but don’t. Our strate-
gies are all devoted toward grow-
ing that third segment, and get-
ting people out of the car.”
Kruse said the motivation be-
hind PBAC’s strategies is that as
the number of riders-by-choice
increases, more people will sup-
port projects and changes that
make a community a more pleas-
ant place to ride.
“If it gets better for the people
who are riding by choice or for
leisure, it automatically gets bet-
ter for the people riding out of ne-
cessity,” Kruse said. “In a town
like Princeton, which is fairly af-
fluent, there aren’t a whole lot of
people riding out of necessity. But
the people who are will only bene-
fit from more people choosing to
use their bicycles.”
When PBAC set out to secure
Princeton’s bronze status, Kruse
said the group focused on “do-
able” projects.
“You need a manageable list of
priorities,” Kruse said. “For us,
part of that was taking a survey
of the town and determining
what trails and bike paths exist,
and where they connect, and fig-
uring out what roads and paths
were used most by bicyclists.”
Kruse said PBAC worked to
create a new map of Princeton’s
“Bicycle Route Network.” In addi-
tion, Kruse said the group devel-
oped a strong and continuing re-
lationship with the municipali-
ty’s engineering department,
which helps PBAC to address is-
sues such as lighting, painted
lines and speed on Princeton’s
roads.
Kruse said PBAC would contin-
ue working to encourage more
community members to begin bi-
cycling. Ultimately, he hopes the
town will achieve a silver, gold or
platinum Bike Friendly Commu-
nity status.
“I don’t think the level of bicy-
cling in Princeton is where it
could be,” Kruse said. “We’re not
satisfied with just bronze. There’s
no real timeline on it, but we’ll
definitely be going after silver
next. We want to push on to make
Princeton the best small town for
cycling and walking in the state.”

Report: Real estate market improved in 2013
By KATIE MORGAN
The Sun
According to year-end
market numbers released
Jan. 31, the Princeton real estate
market reached a new height in
2013.
“Nationally, the real estate re-
covery has been percolating over
the past couple of years,” a re-
lease from Princeton-based Call-
away Henderson Sotheby’s Inter-
national Realty said. “In 2013, it
officially came to the Princeton
area.”
Sales of units in Princeton
under $1 million spiked 10.7 per-
cent from 2012 to 2013. Homes in
that price range stayed on the
market for an average of 78 days
in 2013, down 29 percent from a
110-day average in 2012.
“A big reason for the spike in
that price range is high demand
and low supply,” Christina
Phillips, an agent for Callaway
Henderson, said. “There’s not a
lot of homes in that price range,
and people know that if they see
something come up they need to
jump on it. That creates a lot
more urgency for buyers, which
wasn’t really there during the
economic downturn when there
was more on the market.”
The average price of a home in
the under-$1million range was
$637,648 in 2013, a 4.8 percent
jump from $608,653 in 2012.
Phillips said that increase is
significant, and indicates a
steadily improving market.
“It’s significant that the prices
went up at all, because for awhile,
they were going steadily down,”
Phillips said. “These numbers
are the highest they’ve been since
2007. The high level of demand is
sparking bidding wars. We’ve
had some crazy sales with homes
going for $90,000 above their ask-
ing price. In anything under $1.2
million, if it’s priced right to
begin with, in good condition and
in a good location, there’s a good
chance you’re going to have a bid-
ding war.”
The most significant change in
numbers from 2012 to 2013 was
sales of homes in the $1 million
to $2 million price range, which
jumped from 55 sold in 2012 to 79
sold in 2013, a 44 percent in-
crease.
Sales of homes in the $2 mil-
lion to $3 million range remained
almost flat, while sales of homes
above $3 million doubled from
two to four.
According to Phillips, the data
on homes priced above $3 million
is never indicative of the real es-
tate market as a whole.
“When you get above a certain
price, in Princeton it’s around $3
million, those buys aren’t affect-
ed by or paying attention to the
greater economy,” Phillips said.
“They have so much money that
if they see something unique,
they’re going to buy it. On aver-
age, we have one or two homes
like that each year. Some years
you may have a couple more, but
sales on those homes don’t have
the same urgency or competition.
Those buyers are a lot more
leisurely, and that part of the
market is unaffected by the stock
market.”
Phillips said she attributes the
health of Princeton’s rebounding
real estate climate to educated
buyers and sellers.
“There is so much information
out there and available on the in-
ternet,” Phillips said. “I have
buyers and sellers that are online
looking at real estate as much as I
am. I’ve seen a lot of people
watching and waiting. Some of
them may have already lost a
house in a bidding war, so when
they see something they like,
they’re moving and grabbing
property as quickly as they can.
They’re very savvy to the market,
and they know value when they
see it.”
Phillips said she expects
the rising prices and unit
sales to continue through 2014 as
recovery from several years
of dismal real estate sales
spreads.
“The market is changing for
the better, and it will continue to
change as sellers get wind of this
and start to bring their homes
onto the market,” Phillips said.
“When it became apparent that
the downturn was over, it took
some getting used to. We’ve been
through a lot and now it’s a whole
new world.”

port is available online at

The article about the Stuart
Country Day School theatre pro-
gram in the Feb. 5-11 edition stat-
ed incorrectly that the group
would go to Scotland in Septem-
ber. The trip will take place in Au-
gust 2015.
Dr. Patty L. Fagin, head of
school, said, "we are very proud of
our students, our drama depart-
ment faculty, including Ms.
Christina Kosyla, whose work re-
sulted in this prestigious invita-
tion to the Edinburgh Fringe Fes-
tival. We are exploring ways to
offset expenses so that as many
students as possible may attend."
Brandon Detherage took the
photographs accompanying the
article for Stuart Country Day
School.
The Lewis Center for the Arts'
Program in Theater at Princeton
University will present a recent
dramatic adaptation of Charles
Dickens' classic, coming-of-age
epic, “Great Expectations” by
Neil Bartlett. Directed by faculty
member Tim Vasen and featuring
senior Peter Giovine as Pip with
senior Emma Boettcher serving
as dramaturg, performances will
take place on Feb. 14, 15, 20, 21 and
22 at 8 p.m. in the Marie and Ed-
ward Matthews '53 Acting Studio
located at 185 Nassau St. A talk-
back will follow the Feb. 15 per-
formance.
“Great Expectations,” written
in the first-person, tells the story
of orphan Philip Pirrip, or Pip, as
he struggles through an impover-
ished youth and his harrowing
encounter, aiding the escaped
convict Magwitch in the marshes
of Kent. In his visits to the
wealthy spinster Miss Havisham
at Satis House, he falls in love
with her aloof ward, Estella,
upon Miss Havisham's encour-
agement. An anonymous benefac-
tor makes it possible for Pip to be-
come a gentleman and move to
London. Ensuing intrigue and
unexpected plot twists that have
captivated generations of readers
lead to the climactic ending, an
ending that Dickens rewrote for
the 1863 edition.
Among those readers was
Princeton senior Giovine, who
was captivated by the book as a
child and years later still could
not get it out of his mind. He de-
cided to tackle a theatrical ver-
sion of the story for his senior
thesis project in earning a certifi-
cate in theater. "I looked at more
than half a dozen adaptations
and decided on Bartlett's script,"
explains Giovine. "It is concise
and moves briskly through the
plot exploring perspective, how
we perceive time, space and reali-
ty." Bartlett's 2007 adaptation uses
Dickens' original, darker ending
to the story.
Giovine is majoring in English
in addition to his work in the the-
ater program. He was inspired by
his experience working previous-
ly with Vasen on the world pre-
miere of Pushkin's “Eugene One-
gin” in an originally Soviet-
banned but recently rediscovered
version, written by Sigizmund
Krzhizhanovsky with music by
Prokofiev. Acting since grammar
school, Giovine has also appeared
in the title role in Princeton
Shakespeare Company's 2011 pro-
duction of “Dr. Faustus,” as well
as 11 other productions on cam-
pus. He has done summer course-
work at the Lee Strasberg Theatre
and Film Institute, Stella Adler
Studio of Acting, Yale School of
Drama, and, in true Dickensian
fashion, at Oxford.
The role of dramaturg is a crit-
ical one for a production of this
type, a role Boettcher is taking on
as her senior thesis work in the-
ater. As dramaturg she is respon-
sible for the historical and cultur-
al research behind the produc-
tion, assisting with how the script
translates to the stage, and work-
ing with the actors, many of who
will play multiple roles, to get at
the heart of Dickens' iconic char-
acters. Also majoring in English,
Boettcher's previous dramaturgy
experience includes a literary in-
ternship at the Wilma Theater, a
professional theater company in
Philadelphia. "I read the novel for
the first time while studying in
London, during the bicentennial
of Dickens' birth," Boettcher said.
"And experiencing his legacy
there helped me appreciate his
novel's vivid language and his
own theatricality."
The two seniors approached
Vasen, director of the program in
theater to direct the production.
Vasen has directed and taught in
the program in theater since 1993.
In addition to the Onegin produc-
tion in which Giovine appeared,
Vasen directed the 2006 world pre-
miere of the unfinished
Prokofiev/Meyerhold production
of Pushkin's “Boris Godunov,”
featuring nearly 100 undergradu-
ate performers. His other Prince-
ton projects include “Playboy of
the Western World,” “Waiting for
Godot,” “Danton's Death” and
“The Misanthrope.”
His professional directing
credits include a five-year stint
as Resident Director of Center
Stage in Baltimore, where he di-
rected a variety of new plays and
classics, as well as productions
and workshops in theaters across
the country, including The Chil-
dren's Theater Company, South
Coast Repertory, Philadelphia
Theatre Company, and Play-
wrights Horizons.
The all-student cast also fea-
tures Nathalie Ellis-Einhorn '16,
John Somers Fairchild '15, Evelyn
Giovine '16, Kanoa Mulling '15,
Cameron Platt '16, Caroline Slut-
sky '14, and Jake Tempchin '14.

T
he nation’s second-largest
drugstore chain took a stand
last week: By October, it will no
longer sell tobacco products at its 7,600
stores.
To that, we say good for you, CVS,
even if you are being inconsistent in
your message.
CVS’ Caremark unit is a major
pharmacy benefits manager for busi-
nesses and the U.S. government’s
Medicare program. As such, it has be-
come a major health-care business,
trailing only Walgreen Co. as the
largest pharmacy chain in the country.
CVS made a “bold, precedent-setting
move,” said Dr. Risa Lavizzo-Mourey,
the chief executive officer of the
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation,
“because it acknowledges that phar-
macies have become health-care set-
tings.”
Analysts believe CVS’ decision
could convince Walgreen Co., Rite Aid
Corp. – the third-largest pharmacy
chain – and other pharmacies
throughout the country to make a sim-
ilar move to help eliminate smoking in
the United States.
Piggybacking the decision to halt to-
bacco sales, CVS executives said the
company would replace some of the
lost sales through smoking cessation
programs.
It’s hard to argue with CVS’ deci-
sion, as any move to improve public
health has to be seen as positive. But
it’s a little hypocritical, don’t you
think?
If the reason why CVS will stop sell-
ing tobacco is because it believes it is a
“health-care setting,” then shouldn’t it
stop selling other unhealthy items
such as greasy potato chips, sugary
soft drinks and other processed foods
as well? Does this country also not
have an obesity problem?
One step at a time, you say? That
makes sense. Smoking first; obesity
second. Sounds like a plan.
In all seriousness, good for CVS.
Good for taking a stand that, even if it
might improve the bottom line in the
long run, will surely hurt it in the
short term.
Other pharmacies should follow
suit. “Health-care settings” should
promote healthy living.
No smoking here!
Sure, it might be slightly hypocritical, but good for CVS for taking a stand
Your thoughts
What are your thoughts on the move by
CVS to not sell tobacco products at their
stores? What role should private busi-
nessess have in health-care initiatives?
How about public entities such as the
municipality? Share your thoughts with a
letter to the editor.
Quinn: Payment a matter of policy
Wilson’s accumulated unused vacation
time totaled $34,954. The amount was de-
termined by dividing Wilson’s $229,950 an-
nual salary by 260 days of work. By this
calculation, Wilson’s per-day rate was
$884.42.
Quinn noted that the large payment was
of some concern to members of the public,
but he clarified that approving such a pay-
ment is a matter of policy.
“It’s a standard thing, and I imagine it
was covered in her contract,” Quinn said.
“Any expenditure of money is subject to a
public vote. I was personally surprised that
this line drew so much attention. These
were not parting gifts from the board – this
was part of her compensation package that
was earned.”
Quinn also noted that when Wilson’s
predecessor left the district in 2004, the cost
to the board was significantly higher.
“I think it’s worth noting that the con-
tract of her predecessor was bought out,”
Quinn said. “The price tag for that was sig-
nificantly higher than these earned por-
tions of her contract.”
Quinn said he views the accrual of vaca-
tion and sick days as a testament to the
hard work Wilson did as the district’s
leader.
“She truly earned this compensation,”
Quinn said. “I don’t mean to imply that she
never took time off, or never took a vaca-
tion, but I think the accrual is a reflection
of her dedication to the work she was
doing. I think the fact that she didn’t use it
all is really a testament to how hard she
worked here. It is absolutely an earned
benefit.”
In addition to approving the payout to
Wilson, the board also approved a payment
for accumulated sick days in the amount of
$600 to counselor Sharon Pagliere, and a
payment for accumulated sick and vaca-
tion days in the amount of $29,558 to car-
penter Neal Woodrick.

The following are reports from
the Princeton Police Department.
On Jan. 16 at 11:09 p.m., during
a motor vehicle stop, a traffic war-
rant was located for the driver
that was issued out of Ewing
Township. Municipal Court. The
driver was placed under arrest,
transported to police headquar-
ters and later released after post-
ing $96 bail.
On Jan. 18 at 10:10 a.m., subse-
quent to a motor vehicle stop, the
driver was found to have an out-
standing $166 traffic warrant out
of Trenton. The driver was
placed under arrest and trans-
ported to police headquarters,
where he was released via author-
ity of Trenton Municipal Court.
On Jan. 19 at 10:04 p.m., while
investigating a vehicle parked at
Princeton Battlefield Park after
hours, an officer located two 18-
year-olds and two juvenile fe-
males in the vehicle. The subse-
quent investigation revealed one
18-year-old was in possession of
suspected marijuana and drug
paraphernalia, and the other 18-
year-old was in possession of al-
cohol while being under the age
of 21. All occupants of the vehicle
were placed under arrest and
transported to police headquar-
ters. The four were released.
On Jan. 19 at 1:05 p.m., a caller
reported to police that sometime
between 10:30 on Jan. 18 and noon
on Jan. 19, an unknown person or
persons damaged a stone struc-
ture and business sign in the
front of the store at 264 Nassau St.
The estimated cost to repair the
damage is $2,000.
On Jan. 23 at 9:27 p.m., a victim
called police to report that some-
time between Dec. 31 and the time
of the call, an unknown person
had entered his apartment by
forcing entry through the front
door. At the time of the report, it
was unknown what, if anything,
was missing from the apartment.
On Jan. 23 at 6:48 p.m., patrols
were called to Southern Way near
South Harrison Street to investi-
gate a report of a motor vehicle
accident. Upon arrival, it was dis-
covered that the driver had left
the scene on foot, but was located
a short distance from the crash.
The subsequent investigation re-
vealed that the driver had con-
sumed alcoholic beverages prior
to operating his vehicle. The driv-
er was placed under arrest and

ters, where he was processed and
later released to a friend. The

sponding to Quaker Road on the
report of a male requesting assis-
tance from passing traffic, con-
tact was made with that individ-
ual. The subsequent investigation

portion of Quaker Road and got-
ten stuck. It was also determined
that the man had consumed alco-
holic beverages prior to operating
his vehicle that night. The man
was placed under arrest and

FEBRUARY 12–18, 2014 – THE PRINCETON SUN 11
Student prepares to release autobiography
By KATIE MORGAN
The Sun
Princeton High School senior
Andrew Goldstein doesn’t play on
any athletic teams, but sports are
the most important thing in his
life.
Goldstein, 17, is preparing to
publish “Growing Up Green: Liv-
ing, Dying, and Dying Again as a
Fan of the New York Jets,” an au-
tobiographical book about his life-
long dedication to one football
team.
“A big part of the book is a per-
sonal narrative about my develop-
ment as a fan,” Goldstein said.
“And it’s also really an explo-
ration of the psyche of a fan. It’s
about both recalling my own
memories and exploring what it
really means to be a fan.”
Goldstein self-published his
first book, “The Football Vol-
umes,” in 2013.
“Looking
back now, I
don’t think
that book was
very good,”
Goldstein said.
“But just the
fact that I did
it helped me to
start writing
this book. If I
had already managed to write an
entire book, I knew writing anoth-
er one was definitely possible.”
Goldstein’s new book will be
self-published through Author-
House.
“The company I went with was
really great,” Goldstein said.
“They do the cover for you, print
your hard copies and distribute
the book on Amazon. I did have to
edit myself, and that was very dif-
ficult and time consuming. I did
four complete reads, cover to
cover, making edits.”
“Growing Up Green” is 213
pages long, and Goldstein said it
took him roughly six months to
complete.
“It’s just north of 90,000 words,”
Goldstein said. “I started in late
July and finished around Christ-
mas. I know it usually takes
writers a lot longer to finish an
entire book, but for me it was like
the thoughts and words came so
fast.”
Goldstein said the goals he set
for himself contributed to the
speed of his writing.
“I would set personal goals to
write a certain number of words
each day, a certain number of
words each week,” he said. “I was
always conscious that I was aim-
ing for quality over quantity, but
the goals definitely helped me to
keep moving forward and stay on
track.”
Goldstein said that while he
had to sacrifice extracurricular
activities and time with friends,
his dedication has paid off.
“Well, I have to forgo a lot of the
things my peers are involved in,”
Goldstein said. “I don’t play
sports, I don’t play in the band.
But my writing is my extracurric-
ular.”
While most of the proceeds
from “The Football Volumes,”
which sold approximately 100
copies, went to the Hurricane
Sandy Relief Fund, Goldstein said
he plans to use the proceeds of his
new book to help during his tran-
sition to college next year.
“It’s not set in stone yet, but I’m
pretty sure I’ll be attending Mar-
quette University in Milwaukee,”
Goldstein said. “I want to pursue
a career in sports casting and
commentary.”
Goldstein said he looks forward
to getting feedback on his book
from readers.
“This is different because it re-
ally offers a new perspective on
something that is a big part of
many of our lives,” Goldstein
said. “We spend hours and hours
thinking about how our teams are
doing, and talking about players,
coaches, managers and scores.
But we don’t think about our-
selves, and how we fit into all of
this. This is a book about the sport
and the game, but also specifically
about the fan.”
“Growing Up Green: Living,
Dying, and Dying Again as a Fan
of the New York Jets,” will be
available on Amazon.com by the
end of March. Goldstein also
started a Facebook page dedicated
to the book, which can be found at
www.facebook.com/andrewgau-
thor.

Police respond to 132
calls during storm
The Princeton Police Depart-
ment received 132 calls for service
on Feb. 3, according to a report is-
sued by the department’s press in-
formation officer on Feb. 4.
A snowstorm that began in the
early hours of Feb. 3 caused trou-
ble for morning commuters.
Approximately 90 percent of
the calls were storm-related, ac-
cording to the report, and most
were in reference to disabled cars.
“Disabled motor vehicles con-
sisted mainly of vehicles stuck in
the roadway or that had slid off
the roadway and had no damage,”
the report said.
Throughout the 24-hour period,
police also responded to 20 reports
of downed wires or telephone
poles, six downed trees and seven
motor vehicle crashes, none of
which resulted in injuries.
“Roads at many times were im-
passable due to disabled vehicles
and were closed at the discretion
of patrols as needed until the road
could be cleared and safely
opened to traffic,” the report said.
The police department used its
Twitter and Facebook pages
throughout the day to provide up-
dates on road closures and re-
openings.
California students to
get meningitis vaccine
Students at the University of
California Santa Barbara will be
given access to the same experi-
mental meningitis vaccine dis-
tributed at Princeton University.
UCSB has scheduled vaccine
clinics from Feb. 24 to March 7.
Parents and UCSB community
members have been petitioning
the university to distribute the
vaccine, which protects against
Meningitis B, a strain unaffected
by standard vaccinations, since
four students fell ill in November.
More than 5,200 students and
faculty members at Princeton
University received the same vac-
cine last month. The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
approved the use of the vaccine,
which remains unapproved for
use in the United States, after an
outbreak sickened seven Prince-
ton students and one campus visi-
tor.
“The Food and Drug Adminis-
tration has allowed the use of the
serogroup B meningococcal vac-
cine for the UC Santa Barbara
campus,” administration there
wrote in a letter to students.
The vaccine, called Bexsero, is
approved for use in Europe, Aus-
tralia and Canada. At Princeton
University, students will be of-
fered a second dosage – a booster
shot – between Feb. 17 and Feb. 20.
Roundabout opens
at intersection
The first phase of roadwork as-
sociated with Princeton Universi-
ty’s Arts and Transit project was
completed when the intersection
of Alexander Street and Universi-
ty Place reopened on Feb. 3.
Construction crews began
working to reopen the intersec-
tion on Feb. 2, according to a re-
lease from the Princeton Police
Department. The intersection was
reopened as a roundabout. Police
have said they expect motorists to
use caution while familiarizing
themselves with the new intersec-
tion.
“Motorists are advised to follow
posted signage, yield to vehicles
already in the roundabout and
proceed slowly as the public be-
comes accustomed to the new in-
tersection,” the police release
read.
The temporary bypass road,
which served as a connector to
Alexander Street, has been closed.
Police said the temporary traffic
light that was installed at the start
of construction would remain in
place.

Assessments increase
on 250 properties
A number of property owners
in Princeton received notice from
the municipal tax assessor’s office
that their property assessments
would increase in 2014.
The 250 residents have the op-
tion of appealing the increase.
Property owners have until April
1 to file an appeal with the Mercer
County Tax Board. If a home as-
sessment is higher than $1 mil-
lion, residents can also go directly
to state tax court.
In 2013, fewer than 150 resi-
dents filed appeals with either the
county board or state tax court.
Residents who wish to appeal
this year’s assessment can find ad-
ditional information at www.mer-
cercounty.org, or fill out an online
appeal form through the taxation
department.
According to the office of Neal
Snyder, municipal tax assessor, all
residents should expect to receive
a green postcard in the mail with
information about their assess-
ments for 2013 and 2014.
Home and property assess-
ments are used to determine how
much residents pay in taxes each
year.
Last year, the average Prince-
ton home was assessed at $792,000.
Municipal property taxes, at the
2013 rate of $0.48 per $100 of valu-
ation, were approximately $3,802
for the average homeowner.

had engaged in a fight while at
the office, and a health-care work-
er who had tried to intervene was
assaulted by one of the girls in
the process. The health-care
worker and the 13-year-old were
injured in the fight and were
transported to a local hospital for
treatment. The health-care work-
er suffered a cut to the forehead
and the 13-year-old was bitten on
the hand. There were no charges
filed at the time of this release,
and the incident remains under
investigation.
On Jan. 28 at 8 p.m., a caller
reported that sometime between
11:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on
Jan. 28, someone took their
unsecured bicycle from a bike
rack at the school. The Nishiki
girls mountain bike is valued at
$300.
On Jan. 28 at 1:48 p.m., the Safe
Neighborhoods Bureau was sent
to investigate a call about graffiti
that had been observed at Grover
Park in the Princeton Shopping
Center. The investigation re-
vealed that an obscenity had been
spray-painted on the outbuilding
in the park, and that someone had
defecated on the sidewalk next to
the building. The area was
cleaned and returned to use by
the Princeton Department of
Public Works.
On Jan. 30 at 2:17 a.m., upon the
investigation of a one-car motor
vehicle crash on Princeton-
Kingston Road, the 27-year-old
driver was placed under arrest. It
was discovered that she had oper-
ated her vehicle after having con-
sumed alcoholic beverages. The
driver was transported to police
headquarters, where she was
processed and later released to a
relative.
