Ice Storm Keeps Fire Dept. Busy

Last week’s ice storm and the lingering coating of ice on trees and power lines kept the Fire Department busy with a number of calls about downed wires and trees.

Fire officials responded to two calls on Cherry Hill Road on Tuesday, December 17. At 17 Cherry Hill Road, firefighters assisted police in moving a large tree branch that had come down and blocked the driveway. Down the street, at 34 Cherry Hill Road, wires came down and blocked the roadway. They were determined to be telecommunication wires rather than electrical, and were removed by Fire Department volunteers.

Student Designs SNAPApp For Low Income Families

While completing her academic work and other extracurricular activities, Livingston High School senior Dana Brustein found time to create an app for the Congressional App Challenge.

Earlier this month, Representative Mikie Sherrill called Brustein to tell her that she won the 2019 competition in New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District.

Brustein learned about the Challenge through a former robotics teammate. The Challenge is sponsored by the U.S. House of Representatives, with the goal of encouraging students to code and enter the field of computer science.

A Christmas Story of Old Livingston

Mine Hill Revisited:

Editor's note: Between 1953 and 1972 Freeman Harrison wrote a series of articles for the West Essex Tribune about Christmas in early Liv ingston. Mr. Harrison was the township's unofficial historian, and wrote of these holidays from his own experience.

Born in 1887 in Livingston, he was the son of Amos Harrison, in whose honor the elementary school on North Livingston Avenue is named.

He graduated from Princeton University in 1911, and taught at Livingston High School when the classes met in a small wood frame building where the Firestone garage is now located.
