Edelstein Helps USA Win Silver At Maccabi Games

For the second time, Gayle Edelstein of Livingston participated in a winning volleyball team at an international Maccabi event.

She helped the women’s USA open volleyball team to a silver medal at the PanAmerican Maccabi Games, held in Mexico City, Mexico, from July 5 to 15. In 2017, in Israel, Edelstein helped the USA junior volleyball team earn a gold medal.

This time, the women’s team lost to Brazil in the finals. “But since we beat Brazil during the week,” Edelstein said with a chuckle, “in my eyes we’re both in first place. Both teams have the same record, four and one,” she pointed out.

Join the Citizens’ Police Academy

There are still a few more days to register for the Livingston Police Department’s Citizens’ Police Academy, a free 11-week program designed to provide participants a sense of the department and what it is like working in law enforcement.

Spots are limited, and we highly encourage anyone who is interested to apply before it is too late. We are lucky to have an open and approachable department in Livingston, and this program is an excellent opportunity to see firsthand what goes into the job. For those of us who have never worked in the field, or had family or friends with jobs in law enforcement, this is an opportunity to get a small slice of what such a career entails. Doing so can offer participants a better understanding of how our local officers enforce the law and work to keep us safe on a daily basis.

Chief Explains Falcon Road “Sharrows”

New signage for bicyclists and motorists on Falcon Road has left some in town confused at how to properly navigate the roadway. Lines direct bicyclists to travel in the center of the roadway as opposed to the side.

Livingston Police Chief Gary Marshuetz explained that these shared-lane arrows, or “sharrows,” are indicators for bicyclists and motorists to share the roadway. Sharrows are used on roads that are too narrow to fit a bike lane. Falcon Road, particularly with the street parking also on the roadway, fits this bill.

In order for the township to fulfill its Master Plan and the complete streets initiative – allowing motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians to easily navigate throughout town – these narrow streets must have instructions for how bicyclists and motorists should traverse the roadway.

Highlighting LPI Distribution Partners: NJRC Assists Ex-Prisoners Re-Entering Society

Editor’s Note: In his weekly articles for the Tribune, Jeff Friedman, founder and director of the Livingston Philanthropies, Inc., has, over the summer, been highlighting many of LPI’s distribution partners. Here, he writes about the New Jersey Redevelopment Corporation, which aids individuals who have been newly released from prison and are re-entering society.
    •    •    •
By Jeff Friedman
And, you’re finally out. Out of county jail or state prison, that is, and trying to keep it that way. It’s a tough road, as many of those released have no skills, little or no education, possible psychiatric and social interaction issues, a lack of decent interview clothes, and, in some cases, no family or no home – or neither.
That’s where the New Jersey Redevelopment Corporation (NJRC) picks up the ball, and that’s why Livingston Philanthropies Inc. (LPI) is proud to call NJRC in Newark a distribution partner.
