Political Ads

We have received some comments – and complaints – regarding a political advertisement that ran in the top left corner of the Tribune’s front page in the October 18 issue, so please allow us to explain part of our advertising policy on the matter as we approach the November 6 election.

A few readers have questioned placing a box ad in the top left corner of the front page, directly next to our West Essex Tribune logo, stating that it appeared like an endorsement from the Tribune for the advertisers.

Letters of Endorsement

As Election Day draws closer, the Tribune is receiving a steady infl ux of calls, emails, and comments concerning the races and candidates. We are thrilled to see the township actively engaged in the electoral process and pushing for the men and women they feel will best fill the open seats on the Township Council and Board of Education. We expect big voting numbers at the polls and are waiting eagerly to see who residents elect to represent their interests.

Make an Informed Vote

With less than three weeks to go until Election Day, and with two contested local elections on this year’s ballot – five candidates are vying for three seats on the Township Council and four candidates are in the running for two Board of Education positions – we want to remind residents to pay attention to the candidates and issues.

If You Are Reading This, Thank You

We are currently halfway through National Newspaper Week, which runs from October 7 through 13, and we wanted to say “thank you” to all who read our paper. Of course, great journalism is found both in print and online (and the Tribune is available in both formats), but we are happy we live in a town that largely values the tactile feel of holding a physical paper in their hands as they consume the weekly news. To us, and to many others, there is nothing quite like it.

Listening to the Residents

On Tuesday evening, representatives of Essex County presented preliminary plans for the improvements of Livingston’s Riker Hill Art Park, located off Beaufort Avenue. The 42-acre complex was purchased from the federal government for one dollar in 1974. The buildings, which once housed army facilities, have been transformed into 38 artist studios which are greatly in need of refurbishing. Last January, the county held a forum to seek residents’ input for the site, and this week’s meeting was a result of the suggestions made in January.

Get Your Flu Shot

It is that time of year again. The leaves are beginning to change, the air is a bit crisper, and everything from coffee to hand soap has the faint smell of pumpkin spice. We are talking, of course, about flu season.

While seasonal influenza viruses are detected year-round, they are most common in the fall and winter. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, everyone older than six months should get a flu vaccine every “flu season” to help prevent the contraction and spread of the virus.

Two Contested Elections

It's election season again. In these turbulent times, with everyone seeming to have an intense feeling about politics and politicians, we all seem to be more fixated on candidates and issues than ever before. Livingston is fortunate to have contested elections this year for both the Township Council – five candidates for three seats – and the Board of Education, which has four hopefuls for two openings.

Share a Meal

Next Monday, September 24, is National Family Eat Together Day, when loved ones are asked to celebrate by sitting down and sharing a meal. Something that used to seemingly be so simple, having dinner together as a family, gets harder to organize with each passing year, as the demands we put on ourselves continue to mount. From sports practices to religious groups for children, to late nights at work for the adults, finding an hour to spend together each day can be challenging. This day asks us all to put our busy lives on the back burner for a short period of time and take a seat at the table, together.

Be Prepared

As highlighted by the Township Council earlier this month, September is National Preparedness Month and we encourage residents to be prepared for potential emergencies.

This is the time of year when Mother Nature sometimes decides to take summer out with a bang by way of hurricanes, or even, in recent years, a freak autumn snowstorm. Aside from some rain, we just avoided the worst of Hurricane Florence; though many further south were not so lucky. In recent years New Jersey has faced its share of catastrophic storms, from Hurricane Irene to superstorm Sandy, and with more than two months left in the Atlantic hurricane season, we are not out of the woods just yet this year.
