Digging into One Livingston Man’s History

Article Image Alt Text

By Jeff Friedman
Some are fascinated with a previously undiscovered chamber in Tutankhman’s tomb, which could contain the remains, and possibly the intact grave goods of queen Nefertiti, the wife of the “heretic” monotheistic pharaoh Akhenaten, Tutankhamun’s father. Others like to explore Mexico’s Chichen Itza, with its impressive architecture and fascinating nature. As for me, it’s all about the rich local history I find digging at yard sales and flea markets. And Livingston always delivers.

Generous Livingston residents stepped up during the Livingston Coat Drive’s “150 Men’s Coats in Five Days” campaign for a distribution event conducted by Samaritan Outreach Services (SOS) of Newark. As the Tribune went to press Tuesday morning, Coat Drive founder and coordinator Jeff Friedman reported that he had collected a total of 133 coats “and counting,” and, with a few more last-minute pick-ups scheduled that morning, fully expected to meet or exceed the 150-coat goal by the time the SOS delivery truck arrived at his home Tuesday afternoon.
The total, Friedman noted, included coats from Livingston resident Dr. Gary Hecht, who collects winter coats and accessories at his professional office in Springfield. The warm coats and accessories were given to those most in need on Tuesday evening, November 24, in Newark. The Coat Guy has welcomed SOS as the Livingston Coat Drive's most recent distribution partner. Samaritan Outreach Services is a recognized 501c3 charity.
