A Life-Saving Skill

Recently a life was saved when a patron at a local restaurant successfully administered the Heimlich maneuver to another customer who was choking on her food. Luckily, the patron had previously seen the abdominal thrust procedure performed on a loved one, and was able to duplicate this valuable first aid technique.

Speeding Is the Problem

Monday evening's Township Council conference meeting was a good example of democracy at work. Both the opponents to the bifurcation of Edgemere Road and the proponents were given equal time to present their views. Although many repeated the same reasoning for their respective positions, each was allowed to speak and the Council listened attentively.

Election Time

On November 4, Livingston residents will have a plethora of decisions to make and our local contests do not have easy solutions. There are seven candidates for the three seats on the Township Council and two people vying for one full term on the school board. Two other Board of Education seats – a one-year and a two-year term – are uncontested and the town is fortunate that they will go to Ronnie Konner and Ron Spring respectively.

The Tribune generally endorses only candidates running for office within our community; however, on occasion, we comment on other races.
