Approves Varsity Letters for Non-Athletes; Introduces Breath Alcohol Sensor Policy

The Livingston Board of Education approved a number of policies and regulations at its July 10 meeting, including three policies for second reading and adoption, and six policies and three regulations for first reading, which will likely be adopted at the next meeting on Wednesday, July 25.

Board member Ronnie Konner noted the number of policies on the agenda and asked the administration to summarize them for the public. Her goal is to better communicate them to parents. Audience member Sasha Koff thanked Konner for the suggestion, saying that she reads the policies but that members of the community “are not made aware of the importance in a timely fashion to read and interpret them.”

As they approached the vehicle, they detected the odor of marijuana coming from the car. At that point, police officials recount, the driver became agitated.

Library Displays Works of Local Artist

For the month of July, the Livingston Library’s display case is featuring the works of local artist Linda Zamer.

Linda’s interest in art was inspired by several artistically talented family members, especially a favorite cousin who went on to become an accomplished art director.

“I remember being awed by watching him work and then seeing the finished product,” recalled Zamer. “His room/studio, with so many brushes, paints, equipment and completed artworks, is still fresh in my memory.”

Each station comprised a hands-on and written test, which all team members had to complete as a group. There was also a Team Presentation station where teams had to present a solution to a scenario based off of this year’s current issue, which was “Managing Rangelands.”
