Approximately 34% of students took the survey.

A Plea for Help

We urgently need the assistance of the mayor, Town Council and residents of Livingston to help us deal with the huge number of stray cats on our street, Sycamore Terrace. My neighbor at 22 Sycamore Terrace has provided some shelters for them and feeds them on a daily basis. I help her by contributing food every month. We are the only people in our neighborhood and the town who are providing humane treatment for these cats.

A Dangerous Decision

Drug and alcohol use among teenagers was the topic of a survey recently administered to Livingston students in grades eight, ten and 12. We were surprised, and a bit appalled, when the results revealed that 69% of the students surveyed who used alcohol did so in someone's home, with or without permission. In an effort to address similar issues a few years back, the principals of Livingston public schools penned a joint letter to parents and guardians of students. Like the principals, we feel strongly compelled to acknowledge the very real issue of underage drinking and illegal drug use in the township. Just 34% of students took the survey, which leads all involved to believe that the results are a grossly low estimate of the true rate of substance abuse in the student population.
