‘Night
Off’
By JIM WRIGHT
The Montgomery Sun
The Montgomery/Rocky
Hill Municipal Alliance is giv-
ing township students – and
everybody else – the “Night
Off ” on March 1.
The fourth-annual event is a
night dedicated to families and
the fun they can have together,
so all meetings, classes, prac-
tices, rehearsals and home-
work will be cancelled – for
one night.
Coordinator Vashanti Rao
said the idea had been floating
around as a family night,
where families could have din-
ner together instead of scatter-
ing with varied schedules.
“We looked at it and, at that
time, we had no idea other
than figuring out a date and
time,” she recalled. “You’ve got
the kids and their school and
activities – and that creates so
much stress for them. That’s
one of the things we talk about
in the municipal alliance all
the time: the stress levels they
are under these days.”
The Night Off, she said, is a
reminder not just to those
kids, but to everybody that it’s
OK to take a night off occa-
sionally.
“The kids love it,” she said.
“I get emails from them asking
when the Night Off will be. It’s
Musical to shake things up
By JIM WRIGHT
The Montgomery Sun
Things are shaking at Mont-
gomery High School.
The high school drama compa-
ny is presenting the jukebox mu-
sical “All Shook Up,” featuring
Elvis Presley favorites such as
“Can’t Help Falling in Love,”
“Burning Love” and “Heartbreak
Hotel.”
The story, which debuts in the
Montgomery High School Per-
forming Arts Center March 2 at 8
p.m., and features performances
March 3 at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m., re-
volves around a roustabout
named Chad who rides into town
to get his motorcycle fixed and
shakes up the quiet community
as everyone starts falling in love
with somebody who loves some-
body else.
“It’s fantastic,” said junior
Kevin DiRocco, who plays Chad
in the production. “I love it. I’ve
listened to his music with my
dad, and it’s fun to take his songs
and put a different spin on them.
It’s kind of fun.”
DiRocco, who loves to sing so
much his teachers have to tell
him to stop in class, can’t wait for
curtain next week.
“With all the nerves and every-
thing, I just want it to be here, so I
can get on stage and do the thing I
love,” he said after wrapping up a
12-hour day of classes and re-
hearsal Feb. 22. “I wish it could
be right now.”
An actor since sixth-grade, he
appeared in “Once Upon a Mat-
tress” as a freshman and, last
year, had the part of Sir Harry in
“Damn Yankees.”
His leading lady, Rachel Sher-
man, who plays Natalie, is also
having fun getting ready for the
performances.
“It’s a lot of work, but it’s defi-
nitely worth it,” she said. “We’re
like one big family here. It’s been
so much fun.”
“We’re very fortunate that we
have a very talented cast,” direc-
tor Tara Handschin said of the
company that numbers about 60
in the cast and 100 students in-
cluding crew. “They are really
nice kids and good to work with.”
One or two seniors dot the com-
pany, she said, but many are jun-
iors and younger.
“That really bodes well for the

future, because they are younger
and will be around a couple more
years.”
About a third of the cast, she
estimated, are appearing in a mu-
sical for the first time.
Handschin got the idea to do
“All Shook Up” last year when she
went to a production where her
niece was working on the crew.
“We were actually looking at a
more contemporary show, but I
went to see this production and it
was a music story with a really
clever spin – and it was very, very
funny,” she recalled. “It also has a
large cast that gives us the oppor-
tunity to get more students in-
volved.”
The show was cast in Decem-
ber and rehearsals began in early
January.
“There are parts of 25 songs in
this,” she said. “It’s a fast-paced
show. It doesn’t drag, and it’s got a
fun, clever storyline.”
It’s a story, too, she said, that
appeals to all different age
groups.
“That really says something
when both young and old enjoy
the show,” she said.
Tickets for the show are $6 for
students, children and senior citi-
zens and $7 for adults.
Montgomery High School is lo-
cated at 1016 Route 601 in Skill-
man.

board. There’s the winter sports,
the spring sports with different
schedules and practices, so pick-
ing a date with the athletes can be
tough.”
The response is increasing
every year as the event becomes
more popular, Rao said.
“It started out just sending out
email after email to people to get
them aware,” she said. “Now, it is
so popular that just sending out
an email blast is enough.”
“People like it, and it’s been
great getting the restaurants in-
volved,” she said
An online flyer offers those
families up to 20 percent off at
local restaurants.
“It’s quite low-key and it’s
meant to be,” she said of the
event. “People talk about a com-
munity day, but that would be de-
feating the entire purpose. Every-
body would be running around
organizing it.”

nating body for alcohol and drug-

police report
The following items were taken
from reports on file with the
Montgomery Police Department:
No one was injured, but a Skill-
man Road homeowner’s dog per-
ished in a fire on Feb. 17 at 11 p.m.
Police responding to the fire
alarm said they found heavy
smoke coming from the house,
and the occupants – a brother and
sister – had evacuated the house.
Police said the homeowner
said she awoke when she heard
smoke detectors sounding. Her
brother told police that he had
been in the basement earlier and
was on the first floor when he saw
smoke coming from the base-
ment. He attempted to put the fire
out with a fire extinguisher with-
out success, according to reports.
Montgomery Fire Companies
No. 1 and No. 2 responded and
were assisted by fire departments
from Hopewell, Rocky Hill, Hills-
borough and the Somerset Coun-
ty Fire Coordinator.
Montgomery EMS also re-
sponded.
The fire was reported under
control within 45 minutes.
Montgomery fire officials re-
sponded to the scene and reported
the fire appears to have started in
or around a couch in the base-
ment.
Montgomery police, Fire Com-
panies No. 1 and No. 2, and Mont-
gomery Township EMS respond-
ed to a River Road home Feb. 19 at
12:42 a.m. and found a 1999 BMW
fully engulfed. Also damaged was
a 2007 Ford Escape that had been
parked next to the BMW.
An 18-year-old Princeton
woman was arrested on an active
warrant on Feb. 20 after being
pulled over in her 2007 Mercury
for tailgating on Route 206 at 10:10
p.m. The woman was transported
to headquarters, where she post-
ed $304 cash bail. She also re-
ceived summonses for following
too closely and driving with a re-
voked license.
A purse containing cash, credit
cards, a cell phone and personal
items was reported stolen from a
2008 Mercedes Benz SUV at the
Nassau Racquet and Tennis Club
on Route 206 on Feb 16 between 12
and 1:30 p.m.
Police said someone smashed
the rear passenger-side window
of the vehicle while the owner
was inside the club. The Mont-
gomery police detective bureau is
investigating this case.

in our opinion
O
n the surface, two bills recent-
ly introduced in Congress
make sense. They would re-
strict the number of fees airlines
could charge. After all, who hasn’t
been on a plane where everyone is
wrestling to get overhead storage
space for their 73 carry-on bags they
brought to avoid baggage fees?
Problem is, this is America, and
America has achieved economic great-
ness because it allows, for the most
part, businesses to compete without
many rules. Once government gets
into regulating things that don’t relate
to, for example, safety, the whole sys-
tem gets messed up.
Naturally, the airlines aren’t in favor
of these bills. Some of them already
waive baggage fees for one or two
pieces.
Others correctly point out that,
charging fees, while keeping fares
lower, gives consumers a choice. In-
deed, if you travel without checked
bags, you probably would opt for the
airlines that offer lower fares, but
charge for checked baggage. It’s less
money out of their pockets for the
same service they would receive on
any airline.
Congressional supporters of the
bills point out that consumers don’t
like the fees. Well, of course, they
don’t. No one likes fees.
If Congress would check, we’re sure
it would find that people don’t like
high airline ticket prices, either. Or, in
keeping with the air travel theme,
parking rates that rise as you get clos-
er or more convenient parking spots at
an airport. Or high-priced food in air-
port restaurants.
Sure, some air travellers can feel
like they are being nickeled and dimed
to death. But it’s their choice to fly the
airlines that charge these fees. There
are any number of ways to avoid the
fees, they just choose not to do so.
This is a business model, pricing
choice. It’s what keeps businesses
competitive. Congress should stay
away.
Keep air fee bills grounded
Congress should let the free enterprise system work
Hands off private business
Congress has better things to do with
its time than to get involved with air-
line fees. Let consumers make choic-
es and the airlines make business
decisions.

The Rotary Club of Mont-

the raffle.
Tickets are $100 each and no
more than 500 tickets will be sold,
making the odds of winning very
appealing.
The drawing for the winner
will take place on March 24 at the
MTEF’s Seventh Annual

Auction at Cherry Valley Country
Club in Skillman. The winner
does not have to be present.
According to MTEF Treasurer
Wade Martin, “Unlike most raf-
fles, Brad donates this car for free
so that the foundation can get the
most out of his donation. Our
goal is to sell all 500 tickets, which
would yield the MTEF $50,000.
That would go a long way to ful-
filling our financial commitment
for Cougar Stadium and helping
even more kids in town.”
To date, the foundation has pro-
vided Montgomery Township’s
schools with scholarship funds,
teacher-recognition awards, an
outdoor classroom, much-needed
equipment for the the science de-
partment, cameras to enable stu-
dents to take photography and
countless other things that en-

Multicultural cooking classes kick off March 2
The MES-PTA’s multicultural
outreach committee is sponsor-

cooking classes at Montgomery
High School in March.
Participants will learn authen-
tic Asian dishes and beverages in
a fun and social environment.
The highly interactive classes
will encourage participants to
have the confidence to prepare
the dish at home.
The classes are open to all
Montgomery and Rocky Hill resi-
dents ages 14 and older, and Mont-
