WEST WINDSOR: Pirates' Tommy Hussong reaches 1,000-point milestone

  As he watched Tommy Hussong play over the last three years, Mike Sheehan saw a player who was able to change his game and adapt.

   But over the three years one thing remained constant — Tommy Hussong could score points. Last Thursday night Hussong became the fourth boy in West Windsor-Plainsboro High South basketball history to score 1,000 points in his career. The senior reached the milestone with a foul shot in the fourth quarter of a loss at Northern Burlington.

   ”The big thing this year was we got through the first few games and guys were keying on him early in season,” said Sheehan, the Pirates’ first-year head coach who spent the last two years as an assistant. “He had relied a lot on the three-point shot and he got to the point where he started to attack the basket more and be a more dynamic scorer. That made guys play off him and he got more clean looks for threes. He made that effort to be more well rounded as a player.


    The drama pitting the Institute for Advanced Study against the Friends of Princeton Battlefield reached a critical point two weeks ago when the D & R Canal Commission, which a few days before rendered a decision failing to approve the institute’s housing development in the Battlefield area, reversed course and approved the application based on a change of vote by one member, a state employee.

Maureen McGovern is bringing her tribute to female singer-songwriters to New Hope
MAUREEN McGovern was performing at an AIDS benefit in San Francisco several years ago, an event that also featured fellow singer Helen Reddy, a contemporary of Ms. McGovern’s during the 1970s.

   After 9/11, Ms. Reddy — the “Queen of ‘70s Pop” as she was known during that decade — quit performing for a time and returned to her native Australia, where she became a licensed hypnotherapist.

   The San Francisco benefit would be Ms. Reddy’s first time back performing on stage in a while.
