Steffner Speaks About Her Departure; Messer Describes Separation Process

At the end of the October 15 Board of Education meeting, former superintendent of schools Christina Steffner surprised the audience by stepping up to the microphone and providing a short statement during the public input portion of the meeting. About ten minutes later, during the Board’s new and old business category, Board member Samantha Messer spoke at length about the Board meeting of July 25, when the Board voted 3-2 to accept Steffner’s resignation and to approve a separation of service agreement.

Both speakers sought to correct what they say are inaccuracies. Both speakers said they did not know that the other would speak that night.

Dinosaur Park Proposed at Riker Hill

At the Township Council conference meeting on Monday, October 15, Council members said Essex County executive Joseph DiVincenzo has started preliminary cleanup and surveying of Riker Hill Art Park. The work comes less than a week after DiVincenzo attended a meeting in Livingston to discuss residents’ ideas for renovating the park.

At the conference meeting, the Council discussed a county request to install a four-way stop at the intersection of the entrance to Riker Hill Art Park and Homestead Terrace. There are currently stop signs on the entrance road, but not Homestead, and the Council members questioned if adding signs would inconvenience homeowners on the roadway. They agreed to ask the county if emphasizing the existing stop signs with additional signage would be sufficient.

Mehari Repeats as Champion At 15th Annual Lancer Invitational

The Livingston High School cross country program hosted the 15th annual Lancer Invitational on Friday, October 12, at Littell’s Pond. The meet, attended by opponents from Kearny, Madison, New Brunswick, and Morris Knolls, saw Lancer Philmon Mehari repeat as champion. Despite efforts to improve conditions, the recent rainy weather had resulted in a course that was muddy and slippery in parts, and would cause slower race times than in ideal conditions.

But the Lancers’ Philmon Mehari, noted coach James Memory, “had prepared well and left nothing to luck. For the second time in as many years, he took it out hard, opened up a lead and never looked back, claiming his second consecutive Lancer Invitational Crown, in 17:30, a full 23 seconds ahead of the next finisher.”
