Jean Elizabeth (Bishop) Neugold

Jean Elizabeth (Bishop) Neugold, 91, passed away peacefully on April 27, 2020. She was an only child, born in Buffalo, New York, to Morris Earl Bishop and Dorothy Oyer Bishop. Her father’s job as an engineer with DuPont moved the family to Waynesboro, Virginia, where Jean spent most of her childhood. The family moved to Oakridge, Tennessee and then Richland, Washington, during Jean’s high school years because of DuPont’s work on the Manhattan Project. She graduated from Richland High School in 1945 and was a proud Bomber alumna who kept up with her classmates through their Facebook page.

School in September

As we look past Livingston High School’s virtual and inperson graduations, it is time to turn our attention to the fall. Yes, our students have a couple of months of socially distanced summer fun to look forward to, but planning for school to return in September needs to begin now. In fact, officials have been hard at work for a while on it, but they just recently received some direction from the state Department of Education on what school will look like in the upcoming academic year.

It is safe to say that New Jersey, and the country and world overall, will still be dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in two months. And these last four months have shown us that this virus can render even the best laid plans useless. So, we must, unfortunately, have varying courses of action ready to go for the fall.

LPI Founder Shares Reflections on Homelessness

Article Image Alt Text

As Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI) has been shipping food on a weekly basis to its Newark distribution partners, founder and director Jeff Friedman has been in close touch with some of the city’s hands-on philanthropic leaders.
“According to the 2019 Point-In-Time Count conducted by Monarch Housing Associates, Newark had 1,928 homeless people in January of that year,” noted Friedman. “In 2018, Monarch counted 1,927 people, accounting for the majority of homeless people in Essex County, which has the most homeless people in all of New Jersey. However, folks on the front lines tell me that the homeless and profoundly poor populations have grown in 2020 due to the pandemic.”
For this week, Friedman continued, “I feel it will be educational and perhaps inspirational to share the sage words of others reflecting on homelessness and poverty.

As a scholar athlete, Rimatzki said it was important to maintain a balanced schedule during the sports season. He played both basketball and soccer, and explained that practices would take up a lot of time after school. “Some game days,” he added, “I would not be home until eight or nine at night.
