Creative Altruism

When people think of Martin Luther King Jr., they usually think of his historical "I Have a Dream" speech. The talk, which he gave before some 250,000 people on August 28, 1963 below the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., was a passionate expression of his beliefs that touched the hearts of most Americans and became a signature moment of the Civil Rights movement. Dr. King had much more to say, however, such as, "Every man must decide whether he will walk in the light of creative altruism or in the darkness of destructive selfishness." He was a man of action. He came up with creative, peaceful ways to help his fellow man and lived a selfless life in service to others.

LHS Boys' Track and Field Team Competes at Warrior Classic Meet

The Livingston High School track and field team left the comforts of home on Friday, January 8, and traveled out west to compete in the Warrior Classic at East Stroudsburg University. "The atmosphere was great, as the squad would be competing regionally against many unknown opponents," recounted coach Dave Czeizinger. "The meet provided many opportunities for most of the athletes to compete in multiple events. The boys' team had many good performances for the day." The meet opened with the 3,200 meter run. LHS put T.J. Herman, Eric Mooney and Jonathan Ackerman on the line. They all ran the grueling race of 16 laps on the indoor track very well, with Herman recording a personal best 10:08 which put him in second place in the event.

Discuss Lawn Watering Rules

The current odd/even schedule for lawn watering will be adjusted by the Township Council in the near future. Summer interns Zach and Josh Berliner made a presentation to the Council last August concerning the township’s water conservation and water emergency plans and their study was the basis of the ordinances which will be proposed. Based on recommendations from the Department of Environmental Protection, the township will abandon its odd/even lawn watering ordinance, which has permitted residents to water lawns every other day. The goal, the Council said, is to “get away from the odd/even watering, which encourages more watering than necessary.”
