Thank You to Our Veterans

We discussed Veterans Day in this space last week, but we feel compelled to briefly bring it up here once more.

On the annual holiday this past Monday, some of Livingston’s veterans, including members of the local VFW, gathered at Memorial Park to pay their respects. It was an informal affair; our veterans did not make a big deal out of this gathering.

Take Down the Signs

Election Day has come and gone. The races are over. Thanksgiving is almost here, and Christmas trees are already being purchased. It’s time to move on, but it is hard to do so with campaign signs still littering our streets.

As of publication day, today, Thursday, November 14, it has been nine days since the elections took place. Yet we still see signs scattered along major roads and at intersections. We debated highlighting some locations of signs that continue to line the streets, but our goal is not to call out candidates whose names adorn the offending signs. We simply want the signs taken out of the ground.
