Livingston High School Golf Team Looking “Fore”ward to Start of Season

By Robert Towey
 
Livingston High School’s varsity golf team will begin its season at home on Wednesday, April 8, against West Essex High School and looks to build upon the successes of last season. Last year’s team played very strongly in its conference, ending the year with an 11-10 record and placing third in the County Tournament. Head coach John Waddon, who is entering his 16th season at the helm of Lancer golf, believes that this year’s team will play strongly in its conference again and receive leadership from its seven returning players.

Building Children's Character

While academic performance is the number one priority when it comes to a child's school education, it should not be the only goal. School should also be a place where students learn how to share, communicate, advocate and problem-solve so they can make positive, healthy choices in their lives. This is an important part of the educational process at the Livingston public schools. The district's commitment to character education is evident by the programs administrators, guidance counselors and teachers have implemented and the recognition the schools have received this year.

Asphalt Hot Patcher Provides Better Pothole Repairs

Article Image Alt Text

The township’s snow total for 2014-15 was not quite up to the previous year’s numbers – with 52.5 inches falling this winter versus last year's snowfall of 65 inches. However, winter still managed to wreak havoc with some of our roadways. "The township can’t repave every street in town," said Judith Heller, Livingston's communications coordinator. "However, members of the Department of Public Works (DPW) are doing their best, as the weather allows, filling in the potholes that seem to be everywhere. As the temperatures creep up and roads can dry, residents will see them on our roadways more often with the township’s Asphalt Hot Patcher."
