The Sun
Council members discussed
the future of Princetons police
department at the Feb. 18 meet-
ing.
A discussion about the depart-
ments leadership has been ongo-
ing for nearly a year, since former
Chief David Dudeck effectively
left his position in February 2013.
The municipality could maintain
the current official system, where
a police chief is promoted from
within the ranks, but the govern-
ing body is also considering hir-
ing a civilian public safety direc-
tor to oversee the department. In
addition, council could choose to
continue operating under the of-
ficer in charge system, which
has been in place since Dudecks
departure.
The officer in charge model is
generally what weve been utiliz-
ing for the past year, Adminis-
trator Bob Bruschi said in his
presentation to council. In most
departments, this allows for the
most senior officer in the highest
rank to lead the department. In
our particular case, having a sole

Council meets to identify top goals of 2014
By KATIE MORGAN
The Sun
Princeton Council met on
Feb. 19 to identify the most im-
portant orders of business for
2014.
CornerHouse Director Gary
DeBlasio was asked to facilitate
the goal setting session, so as to
allow members of council, the
mayor and administration to be
part of the process and not be in-
volved with facilitating the flow
of discussion.
Mayor Liz Lempert opened the
meeting by introducing DeBlasio
and thanking him for his help.
Gary is the director of Cor-
nerHouse, and he comes with ex-
perience in many other areas as
well, Lempert said. And one of
them is helping to facilitate dis-
cussions like this. So its great
that we have someone in-house
who can help us with this.
DeBlasio asked councilmem-
bers to identify their top five pri-
orities from an extensive list.
Council and administration
were in agreement that the gov-
erning bodys highest priority
would be to find a replacement
for Administrator Bob Bruschi,
who plans to retire at the end of
the year.
In addition, council will priori-
tize determining the structure of
leadership within the police de-
partment.
Other personnel matters,
including the search for a health
officer and a new public works
supervisor, which will be han-
dled by the administration,
also made the top of the priority
list.
Last winter, municipal offi-
cials established a 200-item list of
goals and priorities, many of
which Lempert called vague
and immeasurable.
The focus for this meeting is
on establishing a realistic set of
goals to accomplish by the end of
the year, DeBlasio said on Feb.
19. These goals should reflect
the quality of life that Princeton
residents expect, and goals that
we can effectively plan and opera-
tionalize in 2014.
After personnel matters, coun-
cilmembers prioritized about 20
goals, in areas of facilities, emer-
gency management and traffic.
One priority that emerged was
the need for a cold storage facili-
ty for public works equipment, a
project that Bob Hough, director
of infrastructure and operations,
estimated would cost $1.7 million.
Last year, Hough reported to
council that the town was losing
an estimated $1.4 million in value
annually due to equipment being
exposed to the elements.
Council President Bernie
Miller said Feb. 19 that he has
asked municipal engineer Bob
Kiser to prepare more details
about the proposed facility.
Other items prioritized by the
council include reviewing on-
street parking regulations, cross-
walks and the municipalitys
website.
Many of the priorities council
set for 2014 involve harmoniza-
tion of ordinances and zoning be-
tween the former township and
borough.
Lempert said that while har-
monization efforts began in
earnest with consolidation at the
start of 2013, there were still
many differences to address.
For all these ordinances
youre making choices, Lempert
said. Last year, the highest pri-
orities were the ordinances that
required fees, like dog licenses.
We have five years to go through
two whole entire sets of ordi-
nances and harmonize them. We
really want to be sure were mak-
ing significant progress every
year.
A full priority list will be made
publicly available before the end
of February.
Council reviews differences in historic preservation ordinances
By KATIE MORGAN
The Sun
The Princeton Council held a
work session on Feb. 18 to review
differences in historic preserva-
tion ordinances in the former
borough and township.
In the second year of consoli-
dation, were faced with having
to harmonize many of our ordi-
nances, Mayor Liz Lempert
said. One of the first big harmo-
nization efforts were undertak-
ing is the historic preservation
ordinances. We are still at a
somewhat early stage of this. The
Historic Preservation Commis-
sion doesnt have a new ordi-
nance written yet, but they want-
ed to bring some questions to
council for feedback before they
really get into the nitty gritty of
writing it up.
Gerald Muller, the municipal
planning board attorney, facilitat-
ed councils discussion of eight
specific questions pertaining to
the new ordinance.
Some questions concerned pol-
icy, asking whether the Planning
Board should be able to reject
HPC recommendations, if the
HPC should act in lieu of the Site
Plan Advisory Board in certain
cases, and if consent by owners
in a district should be required
for historic district designation.
Other questions addressed aes-
thetic requirements for historic
structures and homes, including
issues regarding paint colors,
fencing and landscaping.
The township and borough his-
toric preservation ordinances re-
garding public viewing differ sig-
nificantly.
In the township ordinance, al-
terations to anything that can be
seen from anywhere in an his-
toric district is subject to HPC ap-
proval, Muller said. Thats a
very expansive approach to what
is subject to review. In the bor-
ough, the ordinance is a more
typical approach, which says that
the HPC can review only what
can be seen from a public way
which includes streets, parks and
alleys.
In addition, the two ordinances
differ in regard to paint color. In
the township ordinance, any and
all changes to paint color must be
approved by the HPC. The bor-
ough ordinance only requires
that a homeowner get HPC ap-
proval if they plan to paint a pre-
viously unpainted surface.
According to Muller, the Plan-
ning Board recommends that the
differences between the two ordi-
nances be maintained in the new
ordinance. Newly designated his-
toric districts would then be sub-
ject to one of the two sets of re-
quirements.
The board recommends that
the distinctions regarding view-
ing area and color be retained for
historic districts in the Township
and Borough, the official Plan-
ning Board recommendation
read. Historic districts in the
former Township will be mapped
on the zoning map as Historic
District Type 1, and the historic
districts in the former Borough
will be mapped as Historic Dis-
trict Type 2.
Councilman Patrick Simon
disagreed with the Planning
Board recommendation, and said
he felt that retaining separate re-
quirements would go against the
idea of harmonization.
I think were asking for trou-
ble, Simon said. As part of con-
solidation, it seems to me that we
should be trying to get to a single
standard if at all possible. Im re-
ally struggling with why it
shouldnt be one standard across
the board.
Simon said he feels that the
borough viewing standard,
which puts only structures that
can be seen from public thor-
oughfares under HPC purview, is
sufficient a sentiment that
Councilwoman Jo Butler echoed.
I would like to encourage
more historic districts, Butler
said. I think that if we settle for
restricting only whats in the
public view, we might be more in-
clined to get more historic dis-
tricts.
That 360 degree-view require-
ment might reduce our ability to
create historic districts, and
there might be more protest or
pushback. In the end, we could
lose whole neighborhoods.
Additional recommendations
from council suggested that the
new harmonized ordinance in-
clude restrictions for front-yard
fencing and landscaping that
could obscure the view of his-
toric structures.

Rep. Rush Holt will
not seek reelection
Rep. Rush D. Holt Jr., who has
served eight terms in Congress,
announced on Feb. 18 that he
would not seek re-election this
year.
Holt is popularly known as a
five-time Jeopardy! champion.
Before becoming a member of
Congress, he was the director of
Princeton's Plasma Physics Labo-
ratory.
Mayor Liz Lempert praised
Holt for his service to the 12th
Congressional District, and said
Holt's shoes would be difficult to
fill.
Lempert also referred to
bumper stickers, commonly seen
on cars in Princeton, which
reads, "My congressman IS a
rocket scientist."
"Its a huge loss for our dis-
trict," Lempert said. "Hes an in-
credible congressman, and hes
going to be irreplaceable. He does
have the best bumper sticker
ever."
Municipalitys rock salt
reserves running low
As a result of several snow-
storms that hit Princeton in rapid
succession this winter, the towns
rock salt supply has nearly run
out.
We still have some, but were
really low, Bob Bruschi, munici-
pal administrator, said. All prom-
ises for deliveries are just promis-
es at this point.
Bruschi said the public works
department has taken steps to try
to stretch the towns limited re-
maining salt.
Weve purchased a lot more
sand, Bruschi said. Weve
mixed salt with sand in an effort
to try to spread it out.
Lempert said the problem ex-
tends beyond Princeton.
Its a statewide problem, she
said. The state is low on salt,
too.
Lempert and Bruschi ex-
pressed hopes that a spike in tem-
peratures at the end of last week
would melt some of the accumu-
lated snow on downtown streets,
and give crews a chance to re-
move some of the larger piles.
Hopefully, the weather break
will give distributors a chance to
get more salt into the municipali-
ties, Bruschi said. And it will
give our public works guys a
chance to clean up some of the
narrow streets that have been re-
ally packed by piles of snow.
Town hires consultant
to review AvalonBay site
The Princeton Council ap-
proved a resolution on Feb. 18 to
hire Ira L. Whitman, P.E., Ph. D as
an environmental consultant.
Whitman will review Avalon-
Bays plans for demolition of the
former University Medical Cen-
ter buildings on Witherspoon
Street in anticipation of building
a 280-unit housing complex.
According to the resolution,
town engineer Robert Kiser
identified Whitman as the indi-
vidual most qualified to assist
Princeton with its independent
evaluation of environmental is-
sues related to the site.
Whitman has begun his analy-
sis of the environmental data and

The following are reports from
the Princeton Police Department.
On Feb. 10 at 10:54 p.m., a visi-
tor to the Princeton Theological
Seminary reported to police that
while attending a seminar at the
institution, her Samsung Galaxy
3 tablet was stolen. The theft oc-
curred sometime between 4:45
p.m. and 6 p.m. on Feb. 7. The
tablet is valued at $400.
On Feb. 10 at 3:49 p.m., patrols
responded to the intersection of
Nassau Street at Mercer Street to
investigate a motor vehicle crash
with no injuries. During the
course of the investigation, it
was discovered that one of the
drivers was found to be in posses-
sion of suspected marijuana
(under 50g). She was additionally
found to be in possession of pre-
scription drugs that were not is-
sued in her name. The driver was
placed under arrest, transported
to police headquarters and
processed. She was charged with
the two controlled substance vio-
lations, as well as being in posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia and
the motor vehicle charges of hav-
ing controlled substances in a ve-
hicle and failure to keep right.
The driver was later released.
On Feb. 10 at 12:02 p.m., a vic-
tim reported to police that while
moving into her new residence
on Brickhouse Road, approxi-
mately $8,800 in jewelry was
stolen. The theft occurred some-
time on Feb. 9 or Feb. 10.
On Feb. 11 at 9:03 p.m., the
homeowner of a townhome on
Bullock Drive reported that upon
returning home earlier in the
evening, the door to her resi-
dence was opened and her dog
was missing. Upon further inves-
tigation, she discovered several
items missing from the home and
called police. The initial investi-
gation revealed that more than
$11,000 in jewelry was missing
from the home. It is unknown if
the dog was taken at the time of
the theft or ran away.
On Feb. 12 at 11:39 a.m., a 30-
year-old was observed by employ-
ees at Landaus taking two wool
hats from the store without pay-
ing for them. He was located by
patrols near the store and placed
under arrest, and then was trans-
ported to police headquarters,
where he was processed and later
released.
On Feb. 14 at 8:35 p.m., during a
pedestrian stop on Nassau Street
near Morrest Street, two people
were found to be in possession of
alcoholic beverages. The investi-
gation revealed that one had pur-
chased the alcohol and provided
it to the other, who is under the
legal age to possess alcohol. Both
were placed under arrest, and
transported to police headquar-
ters where they were processed
and later released.
On Feb. 14 at 12:10 p.m., patrols,
Princeton Fire and Princeton
First Aid all responded to the
Exxon station at 870 State Road
on the report that the canopy cov-
ering the pump area had col-
lapsed. The preliminary investi-
gation revealed that the canopy
had buckled under the weight of
an accumulation of snow. There
were no injuries as a result of the
collapse and damage occurred to
one vehicle that was parked be-
neath the canopy at the time.
On Feb. 14 at 2:33 a.m., police
were called to the Ivy Club on the
report that someone punched
and damaged a painting at the
club. Damage was caused to the
frame and painting by the sus-
pect, who was seen by club mem-
bers fleeing from the scene. No
charges have been filed at this
time, and the cost to repair the
painting has not yet been deter-
mined.
On Feb. 15 at 4:17 p.m., the
manager of Winberries reported
to police that sometime between
midnight and 2 a.m. on Feb. 15,
an unknown person damaged
two light fixtures in the mens
room of the restaurant. The cost
of the damage was estimated at
$400.
On Feb. 15 at 4:51 a.m., patrols
responded to a house in the 200
block of John Street on the re-
port of an aggravated assault
that had occurred at that loca-
tion. During the investigation, an
officer discovered that a 23-year-
old man had threatened a visitor
to the house with a large kitchen
knife, prompting the call to the
police. The man was placed
under arrest, transported to po-
lice headquarters and was later
lodged at the Mercer County Cor-
rections Center in Hopewell after
he could not post 10 percent of
the $10,000 bail. No injuries were
reported during the incident.
On Feb. 16 at 3:31 a.m. while in-
vestigating a disturbance in the
first block of Leigh Avenue, it
was discovered that one of the
parties involved had an active
warrant out of Trenton Munici-
pal Court for $113. The individual
was placed under arrest and
transported to police headquar-
ters. He was later released after
posting bail.

D
ear Mother Nature: We re-
spectfully request that you
stop dumping loads of snow
upon us. Yes, we realize that we were
hoping for a snow day or two at the be-
ginning of the season. And yes, we re-
alize we were praying for colder tem-
peratures during last summers heat
wave. But this is a little nuts, dont you
think?
Seriously, Mother Nature, look what
you have done to us:
You broke a 130-year-old record
this year when you dumped more than
six inches of snow on us in four sepa-
rate storms in one season.
You have crippled traffic, causing
major motor vehicle accidents and de-
laying planes in and out of airports
for days on end.
You have caused local schools to
delay their openings, close early and
close for the full day so many times
that this school year may end only
days before the next one begins.
You have caused us to run out of
salt. Yep, its all gone. And were hav-
ing trouble getting more. Who would
have thought that a shipping law
would stand in our way of making our
roads safer?
Mother Nature, oh powerful one,
wielder of our wintery fate, please
have mercy on us. We beg you to get us
through these last few weeks of winter
unscathed.
We ask you to forgive our similar
pleas for an end to summertime heat.
We were misguided in our thoughts
then, and we hope to not be as mis-
guided next time around.
We promise that well put every-
thing in perspective when we wish for
warmer weather, colder weather,
dryer weather or wetter weather.
And we promise, oh how we prom-
ise, to enjoy every day of sunshine you
give us this spring before youre sure
to reign down your fury with swelter-
ing temperatures this summer. At
least well have the sea and our pools
to cool us down.
Our plea to Mother Nature...
...Be kind to us the rest of this winter
Your thoughts
Are you sick of winter, or do you yearn for
more snow ahead? What are your plans
for the spring ahead? Share these
thoughts, and any others, through a letter
to the editor.
Reader: Funnel resources
to inner city schools
If we really want to improve the
lives of our inner city residents, I be-
lieve we should funnel resources and
attention to our inner city schools. The
idea of "separate sex" education in the
high schools hasn't been explored thor-
oughly. I believe if you can educate the
girls early, give them the attention on
the values of learning without all the
distractions of the sexual pecking
order, we would be elevating a genera-
tion and breaking the cycle of igno-
rance and poverty for a greater portion
of the population. Give this some years
of dedication, and the boys will follow
educated and motivated women will
not settle for less! Casinos are you
kidding?
Fran Neville
the sites background, and will make recom-
mendations to council after meeting with
AvalonBay representatives.
Council originally authorized a contract
with Whitman not to exceed $5,000, but
based upon the work done to date, Whitman
requested an increase in the budget to
$8,000. Council approved the resolution,
agreeing that, the nature and scope of his
work is somewhat greater than initially an-
ticipated.
Mayor warns residents
of possible PSE&G scam
At a press conference on Feb. 18, Lempert
said she wanted residents to be aware of a
telephone scam that has been reported in
the area.
The scam has been targeting PSE&G cus-
tomers in Mercer County.
Customers have received calls from indi-
viduals claiming to work for PSE&G, and re-
questing immediate payments using a
Green Dot MoneyPak, a type of pre-paid
card.
According to a release from PSE&G, cus-
tomers are told to purchase a Green Dot
MoneyPak at a pharmacy or convenience
store, use cash to put money on the card,
and then provide the number on the card to
the person who called them.
Any customer who doubts the legitimacy
of a call should contact PSE&G directly at 1-
800-436-7734.

Historical society
plans move for 2016
By KATIE MORGAN
The Sun
The Historical Society of
Princeton announced on Feb. 12
that it would move all operations
from its longtime headquarters in
Bainbridge House to the Updike
Farmstead on Quaker Road by
the start of 2016.
When we purchased the farm
in 2004, we were really on a path
to find more space for what we
were doing in the Bainbridge
House, Erin Dougherty, Histori-
cal Society executive director,
said. We put a lot of our re-
sources into the farm and our
long-term goal was always to
move our headquarters out
there.
The Historical Society has
been headquartered at the Bain-
bridge House, located on Nassau
Street next to the Princeton Gar-
den Theatre, since 1967. The
home, originally built in 1766 by a
member of the Stockton family, is
owned by Princeton University
and is one of the best-preserved
examples of Georgian architec-
ture in the area. The Historical
Society has paid the university
rent in the amount of $1 per year
for the last 47 years.
We love Bainbridge House,
and its been a wonderful home
for us, Dougherty said. But the
Updike Farmstead is an incredi-
bly beautiful site, and obviously
very historic. Having the outdoor
and indoor aspects is really key
for us. It allows us to talk about
history in a multi-disciplinary
way, and use the topics of the en-
vironment and nature to talk
about history. I cant say enough
about the uniqueness and the
beauty of this site. When youre
staring over farm fields, imagin-
ing soldiers marching though,
youre really in touch with the
birth of Princeton. We see it as
Princetons backyard.
Dougherty said that while the
Historical Society would be oper-
ating out of one site rather than
two, the move should be viewed
as an expansion.
This is us growing, Dougher-
ty said. While we are going from
two sites to one, were going to
have a bigger capacity to serve
people and well be able to do
much more out there. We also
have the ability to develop the
buildings at the farm. Weve been
doing some work on the large
barn, and hoping to use that in
the future. Theres a huge aspect
of continuing to develop as we
go.
Dougherty said the Historical
Society announced the move two
years in advance to both keep the
community informed and to facil-
itate the transfer of collections
and programs from Bainbridge
House to the farmstead.
The early announcement al-
lows us to be open with our com-
munity about what our plans are,
and to move forward smoothly
with those plans, Dougherty
said. It will take some time.
Theres a lot to move. Weve al-
lowed ourselves two years, which
is a really good amount of time to
get our programming up and run-
ning out there. Were excited. The
nice thing about the farmhouse is
that its a finished space, so we
wont have to move everything
out at once. We can really take
our time and constantly have one
or both of our current locations
open. There wont ever be a mo-
ment when were dark.
Dougherty said the community
should expect to see a plethora of
exciting new programs, exhibi-
tions and activities planned for
the Updike Farmstead site.
Weve had the benefit of being
here in Bainbridge House right
on Nassau Street, Dougherty
said. We have a lot of drop-in vis-
itation by people who are walk-
ing. While we have some bicyclers
out on Quaker Road, for the most
part it will really have to be a
choice for people to come out
there. What that means is that the
impetus is there for us to develop
exciting programs to draw people
out there. We see a lot of poten-
tial.

Ruth Kemmerer Dorf
Feb. 11, 2014
Ruth Kemmerer Dorf died
peacefully in her sleep on Feb. 11
at 104 years old. Because she lived
so long and because she loved so
many, she had many friends and
admirers.
Ruth was born in 1909 in Itha-
ca, N.Y., the only daughter of
Edwin Walter and Rachel Kem-
merer. The family soon moved to
Princeton, where her father took
a position as professor of econom-
ics at Princeton University, which
he held until his death. She often
would tell stories of her childhood
in Princeton hitching her sled
behind the horse-drawn milk
wagon, sleeping on a sleeping
porch with her family on Fitz-
patrick Road and wheeling a par-
rot dressed up in dolls clothes
around the neighborhood. She at-
tended Miss Fines School and the
Walnut Hill School where she ex-
celled, especially in athletics. Her
father enrolled her in Wellesley
College when
she was born
and, in 1928
she went to
Boston and at-
tended Welles-
ley where she
majored in
chemistry.
(Chemistry,
Mom? What
was fun about
that? Well, I liked the way it
made me think.) She was very
thankful for the education she re-
ceived at Wellesley and was an ac-
tive volunteer for the alumnae as-
sociation throughout her life. In
2002, she attended her 70th re-
union there with a few of her re-
maining classmates.
Her family traveled a great
deal, and Ruth learned how to
manage for herself at an early age
and also how to change the rules.
She would say unless its illegal,
when someone asks you to do
something, do it and expose your-
self to life. Thats probably why
she flew on one of the first com-
mercial airlines coming home
from a vacation in Boston and
then told her parents that she had
taken the train; or accepted her fa-
thers graduation gift of going
around the world on a rusty
freighter with a close friend; or
traveled wherever and whenever
she could; be it alone or with her
future husband or her beloved
brother, Don. It might have been
why she decided to volunteer as
the make-up artist at a communi-
ty theater event where she met Er-
ling Dorf, a young professor of ge-
ology at Princeton University,
who was also acting in the produc-
tion. The name of the production
is long lost to history, but the
meeting produced sparks and
Ruth and Erling were married a
couple of years later in 1934.
Ruth did what was expected of
her as a young bride cleaned
house, learned to cook (I couldnt
even boil an egg when I married
your father), and went to Geolo-
gy Department socials, but she
knew that life was more than that.
As they started having children
(Tom in 1936, Norm in 1938, Bob in
1941, and Molly in 1948), she threw
herself into rearing her family.
Ruth was devoted to her family
and not only thought about how to
care for them, but how to make
life an adventure. At various
times in their lives, the Dorf
household had dogs, cats, crows,
magpies, a monkey, birds, a squir-
rel and cats. One of Bobs earliest
memories is of his Mom bringing
garter snakes to him in her golf
bag after she played. She took him
on her bike packed in the wicker
basket during World War II, took
the family West to follow Erlings
geology pursuits, enrolled them in
swimming and tennis classes,
took them ice skating on Lake
Carnegie, and secretly cringed as
her oldest, Tom, made his own air-
plane from a kit, or as her daugh-
ter, Molly, went to Africa for the
summer. She reminded the kids
that life was to be looked at
straight on with a twinkle in your
eye.
Whatever Ruth decided to do,
she would do it with gusto: despite
her earlier problems with food
preparation, she became a very
accomplished cook with a local
reputation for good parties and
great food. Ruths sense of humor
as well as her love of people made
her parties the talk of the town
people always had fun.
When she realized that all four
kids were going to need braces
and a professors salary was not
going to stretch that far, she par-
layed her love for baking into a
cottage-industry baking and sell-
ing Mrs. Dorf s Homemade
Rolls often making, baking, and
packaging as many as 80 dozen
rolls a day. The kids got straight
teeth.
Perhaps the greatest example of
her wisdom was her response to
son Toms death in 1958. Without
any books to guide her, she pulled
her family through the grief of
his sudden loss by, again, looking
at life straight on and teaching
them all how to cope. She took a
job as a snack bar manager at the
local YMCA just so she wouldnt
be at home feeling sorry for her-
self. She never let the kids forget
their brother, nor did she let them
get morose about his passing.
People remember her as al-
ways there, friendly and warm
always easy with a hug making
homemade bread and rolls, filling
the house with that comforting
smell, easy with her laugh and
her love, eager to hear about your
adventures and not be judgmental
if they didnt work out. None of
her children, grandchildren, or
great-grandchildren ever doubted
that she loved them and loved
them for who they were.
She was classy knew how to
set a table, how to dress for a din-
ner dance, but also knew how to
fish the Yellowstone River. She
could talk with all different kinds
of people and always let them
know she had listened. She was a
world traveler flew on the Con-
cord and visited all seven conti-
nents. She was a health nut who
exercised and took vitamins until
she was 98, but who had a secret
passion for Thomas Sweet choco-
late ice cream with chocolate
sauce, a great fondness for Jack
Daniels whiskey, and an apprecia-
tion for an ice cold beer. She was
funny, loving, refined (with a
naughty streak), and always inter-
ested. She was resourceful when
she had to be and generous when
she could be.
It was good that Ruth lived for
104 years because she was still
telling stories that many of her
children hadnt heard right up to
her death. In the end, the span of
time that she was here made her
appreciate life even more and pass
that enthusiasm on to whomever
she met and for this, the family
will always be grateful.
She was preceded in death by
her sons Tom (1958), Norm (2007),
and her husband of 50 years, Er-
ling (1984).
She is survived by son, Bob;
daughter, Molly; seven grandchil-
dren, and seven great-grandchil-
dren.

Mardi Gras at Witherspoon set for March 1
Mark your calendar! Historic
Witherspoon Presbyterian
Church invites the community to
come celebrate Mardi Gras at
Witherspoon with a taste of New
Orleans cuisine and the sound of
jazz performed by The Rene-
gades, March 1 at 4 p.m. Dinner
will be served at 4 p.m. and the
concert will begin at 5 p.m. The
cost of this event is $35 for dinner
and concert and $20 for the con-
cert only.
For tickets, contact Wither-
spoon Presbyterian Church at
(609) 924-1666, or email wither-
spoon@verizon.net. Witherspoon
Street Church is located at 124
Witherspoon St. in Princeton.
This event is sponsored by the
Witherspoon Street Organ Fund
Committee.
The Witherspoon Presbyterian
Church congregation was organ-
ized in 1837, making it one of the
oldest African-American Presby-
terian congregations in New Jer-
sey. Currently the multicultural
church is served by the Rev.
Muriel Burrows.
captain has allowed that to occur
defacto. Normally this position
would have all the responsibili-
ties and duties that a chief would
have, just without the title of
chief, and without the concerns
some people have with the tenure
provisions that come along with
appointing a chief. Its commonly
used as a temporary measure
while a new chief is being consid-
ered.
Capt. Nick Sutter has been
leading the department for the
past year, and members of the
governing body praised the work
he has done.
I think were very lucky in
that Capt. Sutter has been doing
an amazing job, Lempert told re-
porters before the meeting. He
has had a very challenging job
trying to bring together two sepa-
rate departments. There were a
lot of questions going into consol-
idation about whether it could be
done, and hes done remarkably
well.
Bruschi also reviewed coun-
cils option to hire a public safety
director.
This is very popular in larger
municipalities, Bruschi said. A
lot of people view this as more of
a political appointment. The con-
cern by the rank and file is that
then theres a political element
that comes into the operation of
the department. It can bring in a
fresh prospective, especially if
you do bring in someone with a
law enforcement background, but
a civilian director has specific re-
strictions on things they can and
cant do within the department.
According to Bruschi, a public
safety director can develop orga-
nizational structures, control the
budget and develop policy, but as
a civilian, they do not have access
to criminal investigations, inter-
nal affairs or personnel assign-
ments.
The final model addressed, and
the one recommended by Br-
uschi, was the option to promote
a new police chief.
This is the most popular
model, and it is accepted by both
the rank and file and other law
enforcement organizations, Br-
uschi said. This model provides
clear leadership in both operation
and administrative aspects of the
department.
Should the town decide to
choose a new chief, Sutter would
likely be one of several candi-
dates considered for the position.
Bruschi said in that case, the
application process would be
opened to the departments cap-
tain and lieutenants.
The decision council has to
make is important as it sets the
tone for the department and will
establish permanent direction
and stability, Bruschi said.
Whichever way we go, the posi-
tion is only as good as the person
we select.
Council is expected to make a
public official decision on the po-
lice leadership structure at an up-
coming meeting.
