U.S. Rep. Rush Holt (D-12), assistant director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) from 1989 to 1998 recently responded to the announcement that the U.S. Department of Energy had awarded a five-year, $390 million management contract for the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab to Princeton University and had confirmed Stewart Prager as Director of PPPL. “By awarding this contract, the Department of Energy is saying that the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory is the best in the field and that the nation will look to Princeton to reassert American leadership in fusion research,” Mr. Holt said. “Stewart Prager is an ideal leader for PPPL now.”

The Mercer County Commission on Abused, Neglected, and Missing Children and the Cherish the Children Foundation are seeking nominations to honor volunteers at the 23rd Annual “Cherish the Children Awards Banquet.” Nominations are sought for volunteers in three categories: Administrative (volunteer such as a board or advisory member who actively participates in the administration of an agency that works with children); Program (a volunteer who works directly with agency clients); and Organization (a civic, corporate or other organization that has donated services, organized or sponsored an event to benefit children, or otherwise demonstrated support for the nominating agency). The Commission and Foundation also will honor a professional who works on behalf of children in Mercer County. This person should exemplify the commitment needed to enhance the life of children in Mercer County, and his or her work should surpass the usual professional obligations and be an inspiration to colleagues.
