Discourteous Display

Dear Editor:
I’ve been a Livingston resident for nearly 30 years. I’ve always had good relations with Livingston’s finest. Up until last Sunday morning, May 18, that is. It was then, as I was dreamily motoring on Mt. Pleasant Avenue with nary another car on the road on my way to an early tee off time at Cedar Hill that it happened. Near Eppes, where the road widens from one lane to two, appear two black SUVs at a dead stop, side-by-side in the roadway completely blocking both travel lanes.

Interim Leadership

Monday evening's announcements of interim leadership for the Livingston schools gives the community understandable reasons for concern – both educationally and financially. Dr. John B. Alfieri, who has been on a leave of absence since April 28, will be resigning effective June 30, having completed only one year of his five year contract. The reason given was that both the Board and Dr. Alfieri have realized that their "relationship is not the 'right fit' for either of them." That might be well and good if Dr. Alfieri had been here for awhile or were close to the end of his contract.

Clarify Beer Sale Article

Dear Editor:
The July 4th Celebration Committee would like to add clarity to the article that was published in last week's Tribune regarding the Town holding a public hearing regarding beer sales at the July 4th celebration. Having read the short explanation that the Town Council is considering beer sales at Memorial Park on July 4th, my initial thought was that our residents were going to envision public beer consumption throughout the park all day and all night. The "family friendly" atmosphere of the July 4th will not change at all.

Let's Do the Research

When the school district reported on its experiences piloting technology for PARCC testing a few weeks ago, it satisfied the public’s thirst for information about testing and computers and, perhaps unintentionally, opened a floodgate of comments and questions about technology in the classroom, primarily the elementary classrooms. Parents and staff, bringing their own biases and experiences to the microphone at a couple of Board meetings, told anecdotes and provided opinions and asked questions about the district’s use of computers for curriculum and instruction.
