We can’t say we’re big on holidays, what with our being in the

newspaper business and all, but last week we did enjoy getting our own

valentines – in the form of E-mails from two people we profiled in the

last two issues. Ellie Slott Fisher, author of "Dating for Dads: The

Single Father’s Guide to Dating Well Without Parenting Poorly" (U.S.

1, February 6), E-mailed to let us know "I’m still hearing from people

who saw (the story)." Fisher speaks at Borders Books in Nassau Park on

Tuesday, March 11, at 7:30 p.m.

Leslie Dowling ("Portrait of a `Green’ Architect,’" U.S. 1, February

13), E-mailed us twice, first to thank us for her profile: "I love the

piece you wrote. In the 20 minutes we spoke you asked really smart

questions. I just wanted to tell you that it is a great piece. My

husband (Carlo Momo of the Terra Momo restaurant group) loved it, as

well." She E-mailed again the next day to say: "I read Janet’s article

("Constructing Janet: Build It and They Will Come") after I wrote you

last night and I double that compliment, triple it."

In fact, a lot of people have commented on the Women in Business

article on the remarkable Janet Lasley, one half of Lasley Brahaney

Architecture Construction, which she co-owns with her husband,

architect Marc Brahaney. U.S. 1 senior correspondent Barbara Fox even

had three people come up to her at church last Sunday to let her know

they had read the piece, unanimously intimating, "It’s about time you

did an article on Janet."

Over the years, every time Lasley would win an honor or an award,

which was frequently, people would ask us: "When are you going to do a

story on Janet Lasley?" But, alas, we don’t usually cover honors and

awards. We knew the time would come when it would be "right." And with

the opening of Lasley Brahaney’s new "green" offices at 860 State

Road, we said, "OK, now." Hey, timing is everything.

Directory Time

Speaking of timing, we are at that time when we are reaching out for

information for our annual U.S. 1 Business Directory, which most of

you know as the definitive listing of central New Jersey businesses.

If we already know about your company (in which case you may have also

been in the book in prior years), you will sometime this week or early

next week receive a fax or a letter from us. We hope you will take a

minute to confirm and update the information for these free editorial

listings and send it back to us.

If you are new in business or new in town, this is the time to let us

know you are here. Just mail (12 Roszel Road, Princeton 08540), fax

(609-452-0033), or E-mail (info@princetoninfo.com – Directory

Submission in the subject line) your basic contact information and

business description and we will take care of the rest.

Please note: This is a business to business directory only. Health and

fitness practitioners will be listed in another directory in June.

What about dining and entertainment venues? We want to know about

them, as well, for our online directory. But now is not the time to

explain all that. It is Directory time, and timing’s everything.
