For a second or two last week we thought we had left our rudimentary proofreading skills back at the old office at 12 Roszel Road. If you found yourself engrossed in the reverie of a late summer kayak ride on the Delaware & Raritan Canal, expressed on page 6 of our September 3 issue, you might have wondered — as several of our new colleagues at 15 Princess Road did — who wrote that lyrical piece.
As some of our readers might have guessed, the writer was in fact Carolyn Foote Edelmann, nature writer par extraordinaire, who has contributed poems to our Summer Fiction issue as well as occasional essays to U.S. 1 and our sister paper, the West Windsor-Plainsboro News. Many of her contributions have been based on keen observations of the natural world around us, but not all. We recall her August 8, 2012, account of her visit to “Wyeth’s world,” the Brandywine River Museum in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, where Andrew Wyeth’s studio has been restored.
But on September 3 that would have only been a guess. In the fog of moving from one location to another, our editor failed to include Edelmann’s byline with that layout. Our apologies to Edelmann and to our readers who had to play a guessing game.
Let’s hope that our proofreading skills were moved, but were still in the box and as yet unpacked as the September 3 issue went to press. That literally was what happened to our telephones on the day of the move, Thursday, August 28. Those of you who called our number that day were greeted — uncharacteristically for U.S. 1 — by a telephone answering machine.
We apologize for that, as well, but assure you that the phones are now unpacked and fully functional. If you need to reach us you can call us at 609-452-7000. Or E-mail us — firstname.lastname@example.org for event submissions or email@example.com for letters to the editor or news-related releases.
And if you still use snail mail or have reason to Fed Ex or UPS us, the physical address is 15 Princess Road, Suite K, Lawrenceville 08648.

U.S. 1’s August 27 issue profiled Hope Connolly, a recent Princeton University graduate who has started Princeton Green Drinks, a “meet-up” style gathering of professionals working in the field of environmental sustainability. A person posting an online comment about the article at www.princetoninfo.com (U.S. 1’s website) asked for more information about upcoming events.
We asked Connolly for a report on the group’s first meeting. “We had a great inaugural happy hour at Houlihan’s [in Mercer Mall] last month, where environmentalists from the real estate, agriculture, solar energy, education, and business industries exchanged ideas,” reports Connolly. The next happy hour, she says, will be Monday, September 15, at 8 p.m. at Chili’s on Route 1 in Lawrenceville. “Looking forward to some more great sustainability discussions.”
