Local schools on early dismissal today, cancel events for tonight
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the Princeton area that will be in effect until 6 p.m. tomorrow.
A winter storm warning means a significant amount of snow is expected and strong winds with gusts up to 35 mph are possible, making travel very hazardous or impossible at times. Other hazards associated with the winter storm include heavy snow, blowing and drifting. Snow accumulations have been projected between 12 to 16 inches, with snow becoming heavy at times late this afternoon through Tuesday morning when snowfall rates of a couple of inches per hour can occur before tapering off Tuesday afternoon. In response to the winter storm warning, the Princeton Public Schools will dismiss early today. The high school will dismiss at 12:35 p.m. The middle school and elementary schools will dismiss at 1 p.m. Pre-kindergarten classes will let out at 12:30 p.m. All after school activities are cancelled.

A Place for Film Lovers
The New Jersey Film Festival promises something for everyone
ANY movie lover is bound to make a list of his or her favorite movies of the year, and one of the films that made Al Nigrin’s list is WildLike. Not to be confused with Wild, the film that earned Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern Oscar nominations, WildLike stars Ella Purnell (Never Let Me Go) as Mackenzie, who is sent to live in Alaska with her uncle (played by Brian Geraghty of The Hurt Locker).
When her uncle turns out to be a predator, Mackenzie escapes, hoping to make her way back to her Seattle home. She meets Bruce Greenwood (known to trekkies as Captain Pike in the recent Star Trek movies), and as the two work together to make their way through the Alaska wild, they share experiences and learn about each other.
”It’s ultimately about two people who were doing soul searching that find each other,” says Mr. Nigrin, the director of the New Jersey Film Festival at Rutgers. “And it’s not a romantic film, it’s more a father-daughter relationship than anything else.”
