"Elves" Are Hard at Work Restoring Camuso Display

Article Image Alt Text
Santa's elves may be busy in the North Pole; but, they have nothing on the elves who are busy in Livingston preparing the Camuso Holiday display.
The Camuso holiday decorations, erected for years at the Camuso home on Burnet Hill Road, were donated to the community by the family following Ernie Camuso’s death. A committee was formed including some 20 local residents, Saint Barnabas Medical Center and the Business Improvement District. The figures in the display, all created and made by hand by Ernest Camuso, a former toy maker, had withstood many years of abuse by the weather. The materials available to Camuso in the early years were much more fragile than what is available today and many of the figures had fallen into disrepair. Some were so badly damaged that they were not usable; however, the committee has been working for the past four years to repair and restore them.

With only 25% of the eligible voters going to the polls, the race for Township Council was decided on Tuesday by a very narrow vote while the Board of Education election, held at the same time, was much more clear cut. Voters sent Charles "Buddy" August back to the Board of Education by a solid majority. Without the count of mail-in votes, August received 2,897 votes to Barry Funt's 1,463.

Livingston Coat Drive Continues Collecting; West Orange Jewelers Now a Drop-Off Point

The fourth annual Livingston Coat Drive is, according to founder and coordinator Jeff "The Coat Guy" Friedman, "chugging right along." Last weekend's dip in temperature, he noted, "is a reminder of the coming winter, and the continuing need for warm coats and accessories such as gloves, hats, and scarves. Unfortunately, we have plenty of takers already!"
Recently joining the Coat Drive effort is West Orange Jewelers at 16 Eisenhower Parkway in Roseland, which will now be serving as a drop-off point. "We are happy to welcome owners Rich​ard​ and Robyn Acceturo and their staff to our Coat Drive 'Dream Team,'" said Friedman. "Now there are even more convenient locations to drop your donations!"
