In Princeton, Independence Day events are more than just fireworks. From battle re-en- actments to meeting George Washington, there’s an event for everyone. At Morven Museum and Garden’s annual July 4th Ju- bilee, events on the museum’s grounds are ongoing from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The jubilee is free and open to the public. The museum is located at 55 Stockton Street in Princeton. The event will include demonstrations by inter- preters in colonial garb, said Morven program manager Michelle Sheridan. Inter- preters are members of the “Past Masters,” a group dedi- cated to researching and demonstrating early Ameri- can domestic activities such as spinning, making soap, or tai- loring. Every year the Past Masters demonstrate different activi- ties, said Sheridan. This year visitors will have the opportu- nity to learn about and even grind up various spices com- monly used in early America.

There will also be a leaf printing demonstration, Sheridan said, as well as the ever-popular ice cream making demonstration. Kids can even sign the Declaration of Inde- pendence. “There are a lot of hands-on ac- tivities for parents and children,” Sheridan said. A re-enactor will attend as George Washington, and will read letters both written and received by the actual Washington, includ- ing a letter to his mother and a letter to his dentist, said Sheri- dan. New this year is live music by Princeton-based Riverside Bluegrass Band, an acoustic five- piece band that plays traditional bluegrass and bluegrass-style popular and country songs. Refreshments will be provided by Maglione’s Italian Ices. The Morven Museum will be open during the festivities. Ad- mission is $6 for adults, and $5 for seniors and students. The muse- um is located in the Morven house, formerly the mansion of

the New Jersey governor and once home of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Inde- pendence. The Morven house’s connec- tion with the Declaration of Inde- pendence makes it the perfect place for a Fourth of July celebra- tion. “It is very fitting,” Sheridan said. You also can head over to the Independence Day celebrations at Princeton Battlefield State Park at 500 Mercer Road (Princeton Pike) in Princeton. The event is free and will take place on July 4 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. The celebration is an annual event begun more than 20 years ago by Princeton Battlefield State Park curator John Mills. The event has changed some- what over the years, Mills said, and this year will include re-enac- tors from Mott’s 6th Company, 2nd Continental Artillery dressed in Revolutionary War period out- fits, who will demonstrate how drills were performed and how period weapons were used. “It will include demonstrations of musket-fire of the time peri- od,” Mills said. Volunteers with the Thomas Clarke House Museum, the his-

toric house on the battlefield, built in 1772, will demonstrate more domestic pursuits. “There’s often some cooking or baking going on,” Mills said. Visitors will be able to hear a talk on the Battle of Princeton, and at 1 p.m., a reading of the Declaration of Independence. “A lot of people come just to hear the Declaration of Independ- ence read,” said Mills. The Clarke House and its cur- rent exhibit, “Arms of the Revolu- tion,” will be open for tours. Visitors are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch and eat in the park. Hiking trails are also available throughout the park. “A lot of people bring a picnic lunch and spend most of the day at the site,” Mills said. Of course, it isn’t the Fourth of July without fireworks. On Mon- day, July 2, a firework show staged by the Spirit of Princeton committee will be held at dusk, around 9 p.m. The best place to watch the show is Clarke Field next to the Princeton University stadium. The fields will be open at 7 p.m. for those who wish to bring a picnic. Blankets and chairs are suggested, and alco- holic beverages are not allowed.

I-Hsiung Ju’s artwork will be displayed at the Princeton Art Gallery

The family of I-Hsiung Ju, the award-winning professor of art and artist-in-residence emeritus at Washington and Lee Universi- ty, has established an endowment for traditional Chinese art stud- ies in his honor with an initial gift of $50,000. There will be a memorial exhi- bition of Ju's work at The Prince- ton Art Gallery in Princeton from July 1 through July 15. Paintings at the exhibition will be on sale with proceeds benefit- ing the endowment. Ju died in March. He had taught and served as artist-in-res- idence at W&L from 1969 until his retirement in 1989. An extremely popular profes- sor, he was named Professor of the Year by the Ring-tum Phi, Washington and Lee’s student newspaper in 1971 and won sever-

al other awards for his teaching. A memorial service will be held on July 7 at 2 p.m. at All Saints Church in Princeton, where Ju established his studio after relocating from Lexington in 2002. The I-Hsiung Ju Endowment for Traditional Chinese Art Stud- ies will provide funds to continue Ju’s legacy of nurturing and en- couraging the study of tradition- al Chinese art, art history, and language and literature among Washington and Lee students. The dean of the College will administer the endowment in co- operation with the departments of art and art history and East Asian language and literature. The ultimate goal of the en- dowment will be to offer multiple and varied opportunities for our students to explore and study the

artistic expressions related to the literati culture of the Chinese past. The preferred use of income from the endowment will support students who travel to China or Taiwan to study traditional Chi- nese art and culture, with special attention given to learning the practice or history of traditional Chinese brush painting and cal- ligraphy in either a University- approved program or as an ap- prentice to an artist. The endowment will be flexible enough to allow other uses on and off campus related to Chinese artistic expression. For information about the en- dowment fund, contact Nancy McIntyre, director of develop- ment for the college, at (540) 458- 8291. Or, send her an email to nm- cintyre@wlu.edu.

Kids Marathon draws 500-plus

More than 500 children raced to the finish line and celebrated their completion of the fourth annual Princeton Kids Marathon on Sunday, June 10, organized by Community Connection of Princeton HealthCare to help promote physical activity and combat childhood obesity. The race was the culmination of a 10-week training program in which kids in grades kinder- garten through eighth walked, ran or rolled 2.5 miles a week at their own pace. They then gathered at Prince- ton University Stadium to com- plete the last 1.2 miles of the marathon together. “It’s great to see the smiles on the kids’ faces as they cross the finish line,” said Community

Connection manager Pam Cipri- ano. “Our goal is that this event inspires children to remain ac- tive and teaches them the impor- tance of physical fitness and healthy lifestyles.” The children were joined by former Giants players and Super Bowl champions Stephen Baker “The Touchdown Maker” and Bart Oats, a five-time Pro-Bowler. The players ran alongside the kids and cheered them on during the race. Childhood obesity rates have more than tripled in the past 30 years, according the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and 70 percent of obese youth be- tween the ages of 5 and 17 have at least one risk factor for cardio- vascular disease. Moreover, children and adoles- cents who are obese are likely to be obese as adults and are there- fore more at risk for adult health problems such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, several types of cancer, and osteoarthri- tis, according to the CDC. “Childhood obesity is an epi-

demic in the United States,” said Alicia Brennan, M.D. “In order for our children to live long and healthy lives, we need to help them establish healthy habits early on and events like the Princeton Kids Marathon are great way to do that.” As part of the marathon, chil- dren received incentive prizes for every 5 miles completed prior to race day and were able to track their progress and receive train- ing tips online. They were also encouraged to complete 26 green deeds – from planting a tree to using reusable shopping bags – and to identify sponsors who could help them raise funds for the University Medical Center of Princeton at Plainsboro’s Outpatient Pediatric Clinic. Children from more than 75 schools across Central Jersey participated. In addition to the Princeton Kids Marathon, Community Con- nection also hosted its annual 10K race for adults, which attract- ed more than 300 runners.

Fresh produce checks available for senior citizens

Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes announced re- cently that senior citizens in Mer- cer County will again have the op- portunity to receive fresh-pro- duce checks that will enable them to purchase locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables at partici- pating farm stands. Representatives from the Mer- cer County Nutrition Office will offer the checks on Friday, June 29 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 801 West State St., Trenton. Eligible senior citizens will re- ceive checks to redeem $20 in fresh produce at various vendor sites throughout the county. Vouchers will be distributed in four $5 denominations and are valid until Nov. 30. There will be additional distri- bution sites and dates throughout Mercer County that will include some of the senior housing com- munities and other specially se- lected locations. Call the nutri- tion office at 989-6652 to determine which site is best for you.

“This is an important opportu- nity for seniors in Mercer County, especially as everyone is trying to get the most for their money,” said Hughes. The farmers market program was developed to provide low-in- come seniors with checks they can use to purchase fresh produce grown by New Jersey farmers. The Mercer County program is the lead agency and coordinator in Mercer County for the senior farmers market nutrition pro- gram, and has been for a number of years. Qualifications are as follows: a single person’s income must not exceed $20,147 per year or $1,679 monthly; a couple’s income must not exceed $27,214 per year or $2,268 monthly. Identity and residency proof is required, such as a driver’s li- cense, utility/phone bill or birth certificate. Income proof is also required such as a current in- come tax return, social security statement or Medicare or Food Stamp card. The Mercer County Nutrition

number below), checks are to be signed in front of the farmers. Do not send signed checks to the market with a friend. The farmer has the right to re- fuse to honor them. Checks may be used only at certified farm stands – not grocery stores. Stands will display a yellow poster indicating they accept

these checks. Only one set of checks per per- son will be awarded each year. Couples can each receive their own set of checks. For additional information, contact the Mercer County nutri- tion program for the elderly, sen- ior farmers market program, at (609) 989-6652.

in our opinion

State’s uptick in unemployment

Number rises despite creation of 17,500 new jobs; more must be done

T he good news: New Jersey ac-

counted for 25 percent of all

new jobs created in the United

States in the month of May: 17,500 new jobs were created. The bad news: the state’s unemploy- ment rate rose from 9.1 to 9.2 percent. And let’s be mindful: the 9.2 percent figure really isn’t an accurate unem- ployment percentage at all. There are countless people whose unemployment benefits have run out, and whose cases no longer count in de- partment of labor statistics. And there are others who may have lost a job, who were ineligible for un- employment benefits, and, again, whose cases are not factored into the state unemployment rate. And so as encouraging as it is to

How confident are you?

Gov. Christie says he believes con- sumers in New Jersey are gaining confidence. Yet the unemployment rate jumped in May. How confident in the economy are you? We want to know.

hear our state created the most new jobs in the country, the overall known unemployment numbers are still ex- tremely alarming. Gov. Christie says the new jobs re- port means consumers are becoming “more confident.” The overall figures paint a complete- ly different picture. We’re many years into this econom- ic mess. And we’re still struggling as a state, despite the so-called “comeback.” While the governor’s 10 percent

across-the-board income-tax cut would certainly help some, it certainly won’t help the middle class all that much. A person making an annual salary of $35,000 would see a whopping $1 a week increase in take-home pay. This is hardly enough to spark con- sumer confidence. Much more still needs to be done – at the federal and state levels – to inspire confidence. Realistically, the unem- ployment percentage needs to drop to close to 8 percent before there’s any reason for anyone to celebrate. And even then, the numbers will still be too high. We look forward to the day we can agree consumer confidence is back. We’re just not sure that time is here yet.

ship said, but the tour has been put on hold. Between the canceled trip and Maes- tro Raucci’s health problems, members of the orchestra have had a lot of disappoint- ment in the past few months, and Nettle- ship and GPYO administrative director Mini Krishnan felt for the kids. “Mini said we have to do something for them,” Nettleship said. “So when this (con- cert) came up we jumped on it.” That’s not to say the gig was easy to get. To be considered for a slot in the world-fa- mous hall, music groups must submit recordings of past performances. “It’s like an audition tape only it’s an or- chestra,” Nettleship said. The orchestra sent the arts center a link to a recording of a performance online, and on the basis of the performance was chosen to play in a program that also in- cluded the NYC Chamber Orchestra. The acceptance was no easy feat, and proof of the group’s ability and profession- alism. “We got accepted based on the perform-

ance of our ensemble,” Nettleship said. “They don’t just accept anyone who comes in.” The orchestra performed the concert under the capable baton of Kawika Kahale- hoe. Kahalehoe is conductor of the Mont- gomery High School orchestra and has been involved with the Greater Princeton Youth Orchestra for a number of years, conducting its preparatory division wind ensemble. When the orchestra was left without a maestro, Nettleship said, they turned to Kahalehoe because of his experience in conducting, and the choice turned out to be a wise one. As chaotic as things have been for the or- chestra this past year, Nettleship said, the switch in conductors went smoothly. “Musically it was a fine transition,” Net- tleship said. “Kahalehoe has a way with the kids.” In his new capacity as conductor and music director for the symphonic orches- tra, Kahalehoe chose to have the orchestra perform Alexander Borodin’s Polovtsian Dances and the fourth movement of Dvo- rak’s Ninth Symphony at the concert. Both are well known selections, which are also not easy. The symphonic orchestra was well qual-

ified to tackle them, however, being the most advanced orchestra among those in the GPYO group, which also includes the concert orchestra, the wind symphony, the middle school string ensemble and the middle school wind ensemble. “There’s not as much teaching with the symphonic orchestra as with other groups,” Kahalehoe said. Since students in the orchestra are such advanced musi- cians already, Kahalehoe said, rehearsals tend to focus more on dynamics and ex- pression than getting notes. The orchestra draws kids from all over Mercer County as well as Somerset County, with a few coming from as far away as Hunterdon and Middlesex Counties and from Pennsylvania. The orchestra has a good reputation in the area, and, Nettleship said, offers a chance to play with serious musicians in a more rigorous atmosphere than might be found in a school orchestra. “The level of musicianship is higher,” Nettleship said. Moreover, Nettleship said she believes kids are challenged and in- spired by playing alongside other talented kids. “Playing with kids who are better than you makes you want to be better,” she said.

Also, Kahalehoe said, many public schools don’t offer kids the chance to play in a full orchestra, since the winds and brass are often in the school band. “Most public schools have an orchestra but it’s usually just strings,” Kahalehoe said. “This ensemble offers kids the opportu- nity to play symphonic orchestra music.”

It also offers the kids opportu- nities to perform on stage. GPYO ensembles perform in different locations throughout the year, Nettleship said. “We try to spread out the concerts in different ven- ues,” she said. These venues in- clude Montgomery High School and Richardson Auditorium on the Princeton University Cam- pus. The chance to perform at Lin- coln Center, however, was a won- derful opportunity for the kids, Nettleship said. “It’s a really great musical ex-

perience as well as a trip to the big city,” she said. The benefits of playing at a place like Lincoln Center are valuable but intangible, Kahale- hoe said. They come from following in the footsteps of hundreds of top musicians and orchestras. “It’s the experience of playing at venue like Lincoln Center that has such as rich history,” Kahale- hoe said. “And they gain a greater appreciation for that type of music and that type of perform- ance.”

Also, Kahalehoe pointed out, the June 17 performance was an authentic performance in the sense that the concert was adver- tised so the kids performed not, as usual, for an audience consist- ing mainly of their own parents, siblings, and peers, but for all sorts of people. “That’s as authentic as it gets,” Kahalehoe said. The concert hall was full, Ka- halehoe said, with probably be- tween 1,000 and 1,500 people pres- ent at the concert. “The house was packed,” Kahalehoe said.

Since there was no time for a dress rehearsal before the con- cert, Kahalehoe said, the first time the kids walked onto stage was minutes before the concert and in front of a full audience. “It was a little high pressure but I think they were very poised,” Kahalehoe said. “They had a great time. I think they real- ly thought it was cool.” Overall, Kahalehoe said, the concert went very well. “It was excellent,” he said. “It was a great experience. I was incredibly proud of the students.”

Dance classes offered for those with Parkinson’s

Caregivers, spouses also invited

In May 2011, Princeton Dance for Parkinson offered the first New Jersey dance classes for peo- ple with Parkinson’s, and now al- most a year later, DanceVision and The Parkinson Alliance are thrilled to announce its four-week summer series of classes. The classes empower those afflicted with Parkinson’s disease, their partners, their caregivers, and friends to enjoy movement, music and dance. The new summer four-week se- ries will take place on Thursdays beginning July 5 to July 26 at 5 to 6:15 p.m. at Princeton Dance and Theater Studio, Forrestal Village, Princeton. Classes for walk-ins are $10 per person. If a caregiver or spouse or partner participates it is only an additional $5. No dance experience is neces- sary; all levels and can start any- time in the series. For more information, please contact mariesnyder@dancevi- sionnj.org or call (609) 520 1020. DanceVision is located at PDT Studio Forrestal Village 116 Rock-

ingham Row, Princeton. Princeton Dance for Parkin- son’s classes are based on the Dance for PD program started at the Mark Morris Dance Center in Brooklyn in 2001 and it has since been replicated in more than 40 other communities around the world. Classes are appropriate for anyone with Parkinson’s, no mat- ter how advanced. No prior dance experience is necessary. Parkinson’s Disease is a move- ment disorder that results when the cells in the brain that produce the chemical dopamine are dam- aged and can no longer produce sufficient levels of the chemical. Parkinson’s usually progresses slowly in most people. Although symptoms vary from person to person, Parkinson’s symptoms often include a resting tremor, rigidity, slow movement and im- pairments in balance and coordi- nation. Approximately 50 to 60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s are diag- nosed in the United States each year.
