At the Monday, September 17 regular meeting of the Livingston Township Council, the Council authorized several contracts and issued four proclamations among its normal business.

Presentations

The Township Council issued a proclamation, and both the man he saved, Murray Bloom, and his wife, Maya, thanked him for taking the action.

Reflections on a Lifelong Love of Baseball

Bill “Doc” Pollak is a Livingston resident for more than 50 years, a retired dentist, and, at 83 years young, a dedicated baseball player. He regularly bounds into the Tribune office with the latest Livingston Dodgers news; they won their 12th consecutive game on August 5. But it was time, the staff felt, for a story just about him and his love of baseball and the people who play the game.

Ball Playing in the ‘Hood

“In grammar school,” Pollak said, “we moved to a neighborhood in Newark where all we did, all day long, was play stoop ball, stick ball, box ball, basketball. It was all we talked about. I guess it’s my second nature.” He said there were lights hanging out of windows, between the houses, and the kids played at night.

119-year-old Livingston Staple Says Goodbye

SAMS Fine Men’s Clothing may be shutting its doors for good in a little over a month, but that doesn’t mean co-owners Maurice and Jeffrey Cohen plan on slowing down before then. On a recent weekday afternoon, both were helping customers and working the cash registers while residents shopped the store’s “everything must go” retirement sale. It’s that work ethic that has kept the Livingston staple open for decades.

Every family in town seemingly has a SAMS story, from picking out a Bar Mitzvah suit to looking at the creatively-decorated storefront windows through the years.

Fourth Grader Presents Tennis Trophy to Osaka

“It was amazing!” said Isabelle, whose active participation, hard work and sportsmanship in USTA sanctioned events had earned her the invite.

Share a Meal

Next Monday, September 24, is National Family Eat Together Day, when loved ones are asked to celebrate by sitting down and sharing a meal. Something that used to seemingly be so simple, having dinner together as a family, gets harder to organize with each passing year, as the demands we put on ourselves continue to mount. From sports practices to religious groups for children, to late nights at work for the adults, finding an hour to spend together each day can be challenging. This day asks us all to put our busy lives on the back burner for a short period of time and take a seat at the table, together.

Be Prepared

As highlighted by the Township Council earlier this month, September is National Preparedness Month and we encourage residents to be prepared for potential emergencies.

This is the time of year when Mother Nature sometimes decides to take summer out with a bang by way of hurricanes, or even, in recent years, a freak autumn snowstorm. Aside from some rain, we just avoided the worst of Hurricane Florence; though many further south were not so lucky. In recent years New Jersey has faced its share of catastrophic storms, from Hurricane Irene to superstorm Sandy, and with more than two months left in the Atlantic hurricane season, we are not out of the woods just yet this year.
