Board of Education Hears Updates About Technology and Construction

The Board of Education meeting on September 8 began with a moment of silence in memory of Lou Venza, a former Board member who died last week. "He was a great guy who loved this town," said president Barry Funt. "He will be missed." Interim assistant superintendent Jim O'Neill said that one of the nicest things is to recognize students who have special accomplishments; he congratulated four Livingston High School seniors who earned top places in a national business competition (see photo and article in this issue).

School's Open, Drive Carefully

Every fall, Livingston police offi cers post signs provided by AAA reminding drivers to be more careful now that school is back in session as more than 55 million children across the United States head back to school. With 13 per cent of those children typically walking or biking to their classes, AAA annually warns drivers to be especially vigilant for pedestrians before and after school hours. The afternoon hours are particularly dangerous – over the last decade, nearly one in four child pedestrian fatalities occurred between 3 and 7 p.m.
