Article Image Alt Text

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.

Superintendent Explains Board Election Policies

School superintendent Dr. Matthew Block, at the August 14 school board meeting, clarified the school district policies and responsibilities that govern elections while also praising the four candidates seeking seats on the board.

“It’s a lot of work, it’s all volunteer, to serve the district and community... kudos to everyone for putting their names forward,” he said.

The district has two policies, 7510 (Use of School Facilities) and 9700 (Special Interest Groups) that deal with elections. These policies restrict the use of school buildings for political events or for political reasons, as well as the handing out of election materials, particularly to students, on school grounds, Block explained.

Police Investigate Chadwick Road Burglary; Car Thieves Caught on Camera; Drug Arrests Made

Livingston police are investigating a burglary at a Chadwick Road resident that was reported at 9:52 a.m. on Monday, August 19.

According to police, the exact timing of the burglary was unclear, as the house was empty and the homeowners were away on vacation. The family’s nanny arrived on Monday morning to check on the house, and discovered it had been entered and ransacked.

Police discovered an unlocked door, but the exact circumstances surrounding the burglary were still under investigation at press time. Pending a complete inventory by the family, a television is known to be missing.
