Between the Lines

For U.S. 1’s annual Health and Fitness Directory, scheduled for Wednesday, June 21, we are looking for people with good doctor stories. People who have had positive, transforming experiences with doctors or other health care professionals often come to us to say we should do a story on their doctor or their disease.

Usually we say no, since almost anyone who has undergone a medical procedure and lives to talk about it is effusive in their praise. But for this Health and Fitness issue we are taking a different approach. Some of those stories are compelling, and we are looking for your suggestions (though we may not have enough space to use them all, and we will need to spread our coverage across different specialties). We hope readers will summarize their stories and send them by mail, fax, or E-mail.

Fiction Issue

Callers have started to ask about the U.S. 1 Summer Fiction issue to be published Wednesday, July 26. "When does your contest begin?" asked one caller. It’s not a contest, we reply.

"I’m calling from Ohio," said another caller. We accept submissions from our colleagues and neighbors, readers of U.S. 1 in Central New Jersey, we reply.

"Do you take poetry?" asks another. To that, we can answer yes.

Submit previously unpublished work in any of these categories: short story, humor, or poetry. This year’s limit is one entry per category per writer. Submissions should not exceed 2,000 words. (If longer, please indicate sections that may be deleted for space requirements). All entries must be received no later than Wednesday, June 21, by mail to U.S. 1 Newspaper, 12 Roszel Road, Suite C-205, Princeton 08540; by fax to 609-452-0033, or as an E-mail message to (MS Word OK). Poetry, if E-mailed, should be accompanied by a hard copy. Authors retain all rights.

Preference will be given to central New Jersey writers whose work addresses a theme or place relevant to the greater Princeton business community. Be sure to include a brief biographical summary (including where you work) along with your name, address, and daytime phone number.

We plan a reception and publication party to be announced. All are welcome. Details will be provided in this space.

On the Sudan:

Lives will be saved in the Sudan because of your feature on Emmanuel Mathiang, who escaped being killed by his government and now lives in NJ ("A Sudanese Refugee Finds Peace," U.S. 1, April 26). The Piano Teachers Forum of Central NJ is very grateful to both you and Mr. Mathiang, who spoke at our recent benefit concert for the Sudan, which raised nearly $7,000 for "Doctors without Borders."

Anyone who was unable to attend but wants to help can mail a check made out to "Doctors without Borders" c/o 8 DeLotto Drive Hamilton 08619. Thank you, U.S. 1, for your covereage.
