Chrissy's Column

By Christine Sablynski
 
My husband Ray and I see our friend Denise nearly every weekend. We've been friends for more than a decade. For the past year or two, she has always insisted on making the 45 minute drive from where she lives to come to us. Finally, last weekend, I asked her if she wanted a break from driving; we would be happy to come up to her place. "Oh, no!" she said, aghast. "Then I'd have to clean the apartment!"

Only Supported by 1/4+ of Town?

The Livingston First Aid Squad sent out its 2014-15 donation request letter this week. Fund drive chairman Scott Maynard noted that only about 26% of the township supported the Squad last year. That is an egregious figure! It is absolutely appalling to think that so very few of our residents support a service which could someday save their lives.
