At about 1:03 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, Livingston Police Officer Dave Naylor was conducting a routine patrol on South Orange Avenue when he observed a vehicle travelling at a high rate of speed and running red lights.

Taylor saw the Mercedes SUVdrive over a concrete island and run a red light at South Orange Avenue and Eisenhower Parkway.

Livingston Rallies for LPI: Donations & Support Coming from All Directions

This week, Jeff “the Coat Guy” Friedman, founder and director of Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), in his own words updates residents on the Livingston-based charity, which works to “provide for the poor, homeless and disenfranchised.” The organization holds a seasonal coat drive and a year ’round toiletries collection for the homeless.

By Jeff Friedman
With so many things happening now, I think it’s important for residents to know about the people of Livingston who have stepped forward to support LPI. I especially want to thank our stalwart volunteers for continuing to make another season of philanthropy happen right here in town.

National Leader in Renewable Energy

Last week, we applauded the Township Council for following through on several sustainability initiatives in town, and now that we have more information about the results of their energy aggregation search we must again take a moment to reflect on the great news.

We had hoped for an uptick in the use of renewable energy and some savings for our residents. We certainly did not expect to hear that the nearly three quarters of the town using Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG) as their energy provider will now utilize 100 percent renewable energy, with the other quarter of residents with Jersey Central Power and Light (JCPL) nearly doubling the state’s sustainability requirements. In all, roughly 83 percent of Livingston’s energy will now come from wind, solar, and hydroelectric energy, as opposed to sources like coal and oil that are harmful to the environment.

One Time Slot, Two Speakers

Next Thursday evening, many Livingston parents will listen to an engaging talk about how to better support their children. The only question is which of two talks will they be attending? Two separate speakers will each hold presentations simultaneously next week, with both directed to parents about helping their children.

At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 28, Dianne Grossman will speak at the Senior, Youth and Leisure Services building, 204 Hillside Avenue. She is the mother of Mallory Grossman, a 12-year-old girl from Rockaway Township who was bullied by her peers and took her own life nearly two years ago. Since then Dianne has founded “Mallory’s Army” to combat bullying in schools, and her discussion will focus on encouraging families to avoid the “not my child syndrome,” the false belief that they are immune to the unthinkable happening.
