Police Officers Rescue Boy Who Fell Through Ice

A sixth grade student was rescued Tuesday evening after falling through the ice on Littell’s Pond.

Just after 5 p.m. on February 5, with the temperature at about 60 degrees, the 12-year-old boy went on the ice to retrieve a basketball and fell through.

Livingston Police officers and the Livingston Fire Department rushed to the scene, with officers David Cordero and Sean Whalen arriving first to find the boy in the pond.

The boy, who was able to stand with the water coming up to his chest, could not get out of the water on his own. The officers then went onto the ice and used a rope to pull the boy from the water within a matter of minutes.

Celebrating Life at Cycle for Survival

Morethan 1,500 peopleparticipated in the 13th annual Cycle for Survival event at Equinox Fitness in Summit on Saturday, February 2.

Martha Ackermann of Livingston, currently a Memorial Sloan Ketttering Cancer Center (MSK) patient, helped kick off the day with an invited ride on “Jen’s Bike.” The specially designated spin bike honors Cycle for Survival co-founder, Jen Goodman Linn, who lost her cancer battle in 2011, at age 40.

She was the sister of Brett Goodman (LHS class of 1986) and the daughter of Sandy and Len Goodman. The Livingston native was a member of the Livingston High School class of 1989 and an LHS Hall of Fame recipient.

Democratic Committee to Hold Council Vote on February 13

A vote to decide Livingston’s next Council member will be held on Wednesday, February 13.

All three candidates, Scott Goldman, Laurie Kahn, and MichaelVieira, will address the Livingston Democratic Council for about 15 minutes prior to the vote. Their speaking time will be split between addressing the committee members and responding to questions, though the precise breakdown has not been officially determined.

Only the voting members and the three candidates will be present. The voting will be closed, meaning nobody will know how each member voted. The ballots will then be counted publicly.

Once a new Council member is chosen, he or she may be sworn in immediately, though that is not expected to happen. The results will likely be taken to the township clerk’s office, with a swearing in potentially set for the next regular meeting of the Council, which in this case would be on Monday, February 25.

Play For Duke Brain Fund

On Saturday, January 26, the Livingston High School varsity and junior varsity girls’ basketball teams raised money for the Duke Brain Aneurysm Fund in honor of player Aliza Gelman’s brother, Justin, who suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm last year while at Duke University. Thanks to the expertise of Duke’s Neurosurgery Department, Justin is fully recovered and has returned to school to continue his studies as a pre-med neuroscience major. In appreciation for the care he received, the Gelman family created the Duke Brain Aneurysm Fund, with the mission of “extending the reach of Duke’s life-giving care to patients across the globe by providing practitioners and caregivers beyond Duke with the advanced training and education necessary to ensure the best brain aneurysm care for everyone, everywhere.” Justin Gelman’s story was the topic of an article in the Tribune’s December 27, 2018 issue.

A Simple Discussion

Over the past two months, there has been much discussion throughout town about a swastika that appeared on a student desk at Heritage Middle School.

The symbol was discovered in late November, and upon learning of it from a concerned community member and a parent, an article about the matter was published in the Tribune in late December. A single Letter to the Editor, written by Claudia and Brandon Minde in response to that article, followed a month later (though it was referred to as “another letter” when discussed at Monday’s Board of Education meeting). The letter noted the rise in bias-motivated incidents in northern New Jersey, and detailed the importance of students learning how to handle acts of bigotry that they may encounter later in life, by addressing it in school now.

Decision Pending

Opinion

Monday night’s Township Council meeting was well-attended for several reasons, mostly due to the influx of first responders on hand to honor Livingston’s living legend, Charlie Schilling. Others, however, were there to find out who would be named our next Council member among Scott Goldman, Laurie Kahn, and Michael Vieira. Unfortunately, they left with no answers.

In a statement to the Tribune on Tuesday, the Council said they have chosen to send the decision back to the Livingston Democratic Committee, where 52 township residents will vote on the selection.
