Radium Girls to be Presented by LHS Theater

Radium Girls to be Presented by LHS Theater

Radium Girls, a play by D.W. Gregory, will be presented by the Livingston High School Drama Club on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 14, 15 and 16 at 6:30 p.m.

The play is based on the real life story of the “Radium Girls,” female factory workers who contracted radiation poisoning from painting watch dials with self-luminous paint at the United States Radium factory in Orange, New Jersey in the early part of the 20th century.

The women, who were told the paint was harmless, ingested deadly amounts of radium after being instructed to “point” their brushes on their lips in order to give them a fine point.

Livingston Philanthropies Volunteers Busy Delivering Donated Coats and Toiletries

Article Image Alt Text

Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) is keeping busy delivering coats and toiletries to the homeless. “Right now, it’s all about coats and winter accessories,” said Jeff Friedman, founder and director of the Livingston-based charity. “Evening temperatures continue to dip into the 20s in Newark and around the state. For those living on the freezing streets or somewhere else with little or no heat, coats are vital even when temperatures reach highs into the 50s. The 20s are just plain punishing.”
Friedman, who is known affectionately as “the Coat Guy,” began his charitable endeavors eight years ago as seasonal coat drive. He later expanded his efforts into a year ‘round toiletries collection, and eventually formed a 501(c)3 charitable organization.

Honoring Our Veterans and Our Elections

With Election Day behind us and Veterans Day in front of us, it is a good time to think about “honor,” whether that means honoring voter decisions or honoring those who have fought for our great nation. These two significant days of our year present us with an interesting timeline. On Tuesday, we face the election results cheering if our candidates win. Over the next few days, we begin to shake off our “winner/loser” attitudes and move forward. And on Monday, we will pay tribute to all of the men and women who have served in the United States military services that protect our great nation.

Election Day and Veterans Day are inextricably linked. Our soldiers protect our democracy and its values, including the right to vote. It is as simple, and as complicated, as that. Veterans fight on our behalf. On Veterans Day, we celebrate their service and their dedication to our country.

High School Girls’ Cross Country Team Finishes Eighth at County Championships

The Livingston High School girls’ cross country team competed in the Essex County Championships on Friday, November 1, at Brookdale Park in Bloomfield.

“The Lady Lancers knew they needed to mentally and physically be ready for a Friday evening battle,” recounted coach Dave Czeizinger. “Team goals had been discussed, personal race plans laid out, and the squad rested in preparation for the tough competition they would face from the other county schools represented at the meet. The crew had worked very hard over the past two weeks preparing for the race.” The Lancer girls were represented in the junior varsity and varsity championships, noted the coach, “opting to give their freshman runners more experience at the 5K distance instead of the shorter 3,200 meter mixed freshman race.”

More than 230 female competitors from Essex County participated in the competition. The JV and varsity competitors ran a 3.1 mile course, after the mixed boys’/girls’ 3,200 meter race.
