PLAINSBORO TOWNSHIP: Environmental education center to be named in honor of former U.S. Rep. Rush Holt
Former U.S. Rep. Rush Holt has always been a proponent of open space preservation, so it was no surprise when Plainsboro Township officials announced plans to name the Plainsboro Environmental Education Center in his honor.
Last week, friends and supporters gathered at the Plainsboro Environmental Education Center — at the Plainsboro Preserve on Scotts Corner Road — to honor Mr. Holt and dedicate the building to him at a public ceremony.
The 6,500-square-foot building, which opened its doors in 2003, is operated by the New Jersey Audubon on behalf of Plainsboro Township. Mr. Holt was instrumental in obtaining an $850,000 federal grant toward the construction of the building while he was serving in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Justin Guarini is starring in a Sondheim classic at Bucks County Playhouse
IT’S hard to believe it’s been 13 years since a fresh- faced Justin Guarini was battling it out with Kelly Clarkson in the finals of American Idol in the show’s debut season, but it was all the way back in 2002 when the singer first caught the attention of America.
What a lot of people don’t know is that Mr. Guarini almost didn’t appear on the show, having been offered a role on Broadway in The Lion King.
”I was at a real crossroads back then. I could do my first Broadway show or do this TV show that no one ever heard of and go out to Hollywood and sing,” he says. “I had a week to decide and so I went out to California and kept advancing so I had to thank them for the opportunity and I stuck with the show.”
