Livingston’s annual Ceremony of Remembrance will be held on Wednesday, September 11, at the 9-11 Living Memorial Garden on the Oval in Memorial Park. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will be held rain or shine.

This annual ceremony honors the lives of the seven Livingston residents who perished in the terrorist attack on theWorldTrade Centers in 2001: Luke A. Dudek, Jeffrey Brian Gardner, Donald Thomas Jones II, Ming-Hao Liu, Joseph P. McDonald, John M. Pocher, and Kenneth Albert Zelman.

Event chairwoman Bunnie Ratner said the ceremony “reminds all of the importance of remembering what happened that day. While the attacks themselves occurred 18 years ago, their consequences are still felt each day.”

Man Charged with Eluding Police; Also Stole $28,000 in Sunglasses

The Livingston Police Department took three people into custody on Thursday, August 29, in relation to several investigations that took place over the past few months.

On June 13, Officer Michael Spano tried to stop a 2019 Dodge Caravan in relation to a theft that occurred in East Hanover. Rather than stop, the driver of the van initiated a vehicle pursuit that started on East Mt. Pleasant Avenue at the Rossmore Terrace intersection, and continued east to Shrewsbury Drive and then onto Route 280, where the police terminated the pursuit.

During the chase, the occupants of the van threw stolen property out of an open sliding door. A follow-up investigation led to the identification of Jamal Johns, 22, of Newark, as the operator of the van. He was charged with eluding police and a warrant was issued.

Years After Rescuing “Hurricane Dog,” Owner Wants Former Family to Know She Was Well-Loved

Article Image Alt Text

Zoey the “Hurricane Dog” was loved, Beth Cerullo says, but she has always felt bad, knowing her original human “parents” may never have known what had happened to her.

Zoey was a hurricane “foundling.” The mid-sized tri-color terrier was found outside Saint Barnabas Medical Center by staff members in September, 2004, as Hurricane Ivan raged.

The dog was an escape artist, says Cerullo, who must have run out of her house during the storm. “She kept running away from anyone who initially tried to help her – probably trying to get back home – but she’d always come back, or someone managed to always catch her, eventually,” Cerullo says. On the final “catch,” she was taken to a veterinarian, cleaned up, and cared for.

The always fashionable Livingston Philanthropies Inc. (LPI) volunteer Hazel lives with LPI founder and director Jeff (the “coat Guy”) Friedman and his wife, Karen. Here, says the Coat Guy, Hazel channels her inner Dalmatian to remind everyone that jacket, coat and winter accessories season is just around the corner. “LPI endorses Hazel’s announcement and advises that it’s not too early to donate these badly-needed items,” said Friedman. “Please drop your warm coats, jackets, gloves, scarves and winter hats at the offices of the West Essex Tribune, located at 495 South Livingston Avenue, next to ShopRite. Just to remind our ever-philanthropic Livingston neighbors, we are also requesting hotel sized toiletries, new cosmetics, diapers, women’s products, new men’s socks, shoes, family clothing and more. LPI is a non-profit corporation, and provides receipts, upon request, for 2019 tax purposes.
