To The Editor:
Our community owes a debt of gratitude to the West Windsor Arts Council for presenting an evening with the New Jersey Opera Theater this past Saturday at the Nassau Park Pavilion in West Windsor. Under a clear evening sky, an eager audience was treated to operatic arias and classic show tunes performed by New Jersey Opera Theater's talented casts. The artistic director of NJOT, Scott Altman, announced that the evening was just one of many musical events planned for the coming year some of them also free to the public, as this evening was.
After hearing the excerpts, we look forward to the full opera productions at the Berlind Theater here at McCarter in Princeton. How fortunate we are to have such a dedicated opera company in our midst.

Our hospital in Princeton Is a treasure! The University Medical Center at Princeton is a wonderful institution.
In June I had an outpatient shoulder operation performed at the hospital's Surgical Center. Everything about the procedure was done efficiently, professionally, and expertly. From scheduling to pre-admission studies (interview, laboratory, X-ray) to arrival at the Surgical Center, pre-operative procedures, operating room, post-operating recovery, and discharge, I could not have been more favorably impressed. Superb facilities and caring, well-trained people are in all areas.
In September my wife, Fleur, had a knee replacement in the hospital's main operating room and was an in-patient for several days. Again, the entire experience went extremely well. Not only is there a perfect surgical result but also there remains our gratitude for the wonderful manner in which all aspects of the needed procedure were performed. She is planning to have the other knee replaced the same way, and in the same place, in September.
Our hospital needs significant improvement in many areas during the near future. Moving the site and rebuilding the hospital has been recommended by the hospital's board after careful deliberation. I believe this is the correct plan and only hope that the new hospital location will continue to be easily accessible. Our support is so very well deserved, because our hospital is a treasure.
Editor's Note: Dr. James J. Chandler has been a surgeon at The University Medical Center at Princeton for more than 40 years. He is currently on the full-time staff of the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School.
