Brendan Tevlin

A fund has been set up at Seton Hall Preparatory School in West Orange to honor the memory of Brendan Tevlin. The 19 year old Livingston resident was tragically murdered in West Orange on June 25. Shamrock t-shirts and "Good Vibes and Easy Living" bangle bracelets, designed and made in Tevlin’s honor, are available for purchase as part of the fundraiser. The t-shirts are white and feature a green shamrock with Tevlin's inititials. The intention was to sell 500 shirts; 520 had been sold at press time with $9,960 raised so far. The hand made, hand stamped, adjustable bracelets are currently on backorder. The scholarship was established and the items created in an effort to continue the avid surfer's spirit of "good vibes and easy living." All money will be donated to Seton Hall Preparatory School. The goal is to name the school's game field after him.

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).
