Staying Safe Around Our Schools

Last week, a Livingston High School student was struck by a car while attempting to cross Madonna Drive. The boy was attempting to retrieve a bag from his parents and popped out between school buses. A driver was unable to stop in time to avoid hitting him. The young man was taken to the hospital for evaluation and no charges were issued.

Just this past September, an 11-year-old boy was hit, in similar circumstances, attempting to cross the street after appearing suddenly from between two parked cars at the Mt. Pleasant schools on Broadlawn Drive.

Lancer Wrestling Team Takes Third in County Tournament

The Lancer wrestlers put together a team effort to finish in third place in the Essex County Athletic Directors’ Association Tournament at Codey Arena last weekend. Twelve out of the 13 grapplers advanced through the first round and got into the running for a top eight finish in their respective weight classes.

Aidan Carmody, a 106 pound freshman, stormed into the semi-finals with a 43 second pin and an 8-0 major decision in his first two matches. Using his patented leg ride, body scissor and power half, Carmody scored bonus points for the Lancers as he advanced. In the semi-finals, he dropped a bout to the defending county champion and then lost a heartbreaking back-andforth match to Orange’s Merlin Sanat to finish fourth.

The Livingston Planning Board met on Tuesday, January 21, to discuss two hearings for property on Scott Terrace.

The first hearing was a minor subdivision with variances, at the corner of East McClellan Avenue and Scott Terrace for applicant JMZ Enterprises. The applicant sought to subdivide lot 21 to create four new lots that measure approximately 14,484 square feet, 10,691 square feet, 11,171 square feet and 18,616 square feet, respectively. They also want to increase the footprint size and storage volume of the new surface detention basin to incorporate the original Scott Terrace subdivision, which will eliminate the previously approved underground detention basin from beneath the roadway.

In his weekly update on Livingston Philanthropies, Inc. (LPI), founder and director Jeff Friedman noted, “Collins Elementary School fourth and fifth-graders proved that the ‘giving season’ wasn’t over at the end of 2019’s holiday season.”
Under the auspices of the Student Council and PTO parent volunteer Sherri Lynn Marrache, LPI was presented with more than 100 warm coats and bags of winter accessories by the Collins students who collected them. “Just in time for the frigid temperatures,” said Jeff Friedman.
Along with coats dropped at the offices of the West Essex Tribune, LPI volunteers delivered a total of 162 garments, along with hats, gloves and scarves, to long-time distribution associate Willing Heart Community Care Center in Newark. Willing Heart immediately distributed the needed warmth at no cost to the homeless and profoundly poor through its Clothing Boutique.
