Circle Cleanup

Driving past the Livingston Circle in recent years, it’s easy to not give it much of a thought. It’s a necessary thoroughfare in and out of town, nothing more. The center of the circle was always full of overgrown trees and brush. It wasn’t much to look at, and so most people didn’t. It’s not that the median area circle was unsightly (though with a collection of overgrown grass, weeds and dead trees one could certainly make that argument), but rather it was just not noticeable or memorable as one traveled through Livingston.

Years After Rescuing “Hurricane Dog,” Owner Wants Former Family to Know She Was Well-Loved

Article Image Alt Text

Zoey the “Hurricane Dog” was loved, Beth Cerullo says, but she has always felt bad, knowing her original human “parents” may never have known what had happened to her.

Zoey was a hurricane “foundling.” The mid-sized tri-color terrier was found outside Saint Barnabas Medical Center by staff members in September, 2004, as Hurricane Ivan raged.

The dog was an escape artist, says Cerullo, who must have run out of her house during the storm. “She kept running away from anyone who initially tried to help her – probably trying to get back home – but she’d always come back, or someone managed to always catch her, eventually,” Cerullo says. On the final “catch,” she was taken to a veterinarian, cleaned up, and cared for.

Article Image Alt Text

The always fashionable Livingston Philanthropies Inc. (LPI) volunteer Hazel lives with LPI founder and director Jeff (the “coat Guy”) Friedman and his wife, Karen. Here, says the Coat Guy, Hazel channels her inner Dalmatian to remind everyone that jacket, coat and winter accessories season is just around the corner. “LPI endorses Hazel’s announcement and advises that it’s not too early to donate these badly-needed items,” said Friedman. “Please drop your warm coats, jackets, gloves, scarves and winter hats at the offices of the West Essex Tribune, located at 495 South Livingston Avenue, next to ShopRite. Just to remind our ever-philanthropic Livingston neighbors, we are also requesting hotel sized toiletries, new cosmetics, diapers, women’s products, new men’s socks, shoes, family clothing and more. LPI is a non-profit corporation, and provides receipts, upon request, for 2019 tax purposes.
