PRINCETON: Reasons still unclear on animal control officer's suspension (Updated)
Councilwoman says it's not related to deer cull summons
Princeton officials on Monday dismissed summonses against a local man charged with feeding deer to disrupt the annual deer cull and then abruptly suspended municipal animal control officer Mark Johnson.
Officials released no details about the reasons behind the suspension or will say if the matters were related. As an added wrinkle, Councilwoman Jo S. Butler got involved by contacting Mr. Johnson and the head of the police department about a case involving an acquaintance’s husband.
Mr. Johnson issued Edward Linky two summonses for feeding deer and interfering with an authorized bait station on Feb.8, according to copies of the complaints. The alleged incident occurred around 11 a.m. on Littlebrook Road, the same street Mr. Linky, 69, resides on, those records showed.
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.
