Summer Of Music Big Success

Written by Jill Nossa Friday, 14 September 2012 00:00

Despite heat and rain, community flocks to outdoor venues

During the months of July and August, Glen Cove was a hotbed for free outdoor concerts, attracting large crowds eager to hear some of the bigger-name bands performing downtown and at Morgan Park. The summer season saw cover bands paying tribute to The Eagles and The Beatles in the park as well as names like Richie Cannata and John Oates for Downtown Sounds. Though some of the concerts had to be moved to indoor locations due to the weather, overall the season had a good turnout for both series.

Francine Koehler, executive director of the Downtown Business Improvement District, told the Record Pilot, “In spite of some weather-related obstacles, we had a great turnout this year.”

Historic building donated to city for new youth foundation

After years of planning, a groundbreaking was held last week to celebrate the preservation of one of Glen Cove’s historic buildings, known as the “Yellow Cottage,” a final holdover on Cottage Row from days past. The cottage is being donated by the Canarick family in memory of Morris and Rae Canarick. The building is being moved onto city property, where it will house the Sidney Canarick Foundation, a nonprofit with a mission to benefit the youth of Glen Cove through sports.

Founder and CEO/treasurer of the Sidney Canarick Foundation, Paul Canarick, was joined at the groundbreaking by the foundation’s trustees: City Councilman Michael Famiglietti, president; Judge Richard McCord, vice president; and County Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton, secretary.


Longtime Glen Cove Dental Practice Gets A Facelift

Woodman Dentistry upgrades name to Gold Coast Smiles

The world of dentistry is changing, and Gold Coast Smiles, located in Glen Cove, is on the cutting edge. Formerly Woodman Dentistry, the practice of Dr. Edward Woodman and Dr. Andrew Sami has been in Glen Cove for more than 40 years, though the name just recently changed as Dr. Sami, who has been with the practice for the past three years, came on as an equal partner.

Unlike the typical white, clinical atmosphere associated with most dental offices, Gold Coast Smiles evokes a more comfortable, almost home-like feel upon first walking through the door. With hardwood floors, rich wood moldings, sliding glass office doors and hallways warmly lit by lantern-style lights instead of the traditional overhead fluorescent lights, the space is meant to make patients feel relaxed, not fearful of the impending services. Perhaps more importantly is the technology used at the practice; x-rays are 100 percent digital, and patient chairs are equipped with personal television screens that can also be used to pull up and explain the dentist’s findings. Alternatively, patients can watch programs or listen to music of their choice during their visits, lessening the discomfort of having someone poke around in your mouth.

Possibility of reinstating the high school ski club also discussed

In the final meeting before the start of the new school year next week, the Glen Cove Board of Education discussed some of the operational ground rules and protocols they plan on setting for the year ahead, and began addressing the goal setting process for this year. The meeting was the first after the board’s retreat in mid-August, when the ideas were first discussed among the trustees.

Regarding the goal setting process, eight topic areas were introduced, to be included on future agendas for public discussion and adoption. The first four topic areas that the board plans on addressing in the next several weeks include: improvement of percentages of students meeting or exceeding state proficiency standards in English Language Arts and math assessment tests for third through eighth grades; improvement of the percentage of students graduating from high school, earning a Regents diploma with advanced distinction, and reaching a college preparedness performance level; an increase in the number of students taking Advanced Placement courses as well as an improvement in the test scores; and to complete the alignment of grade level curricula with the common core standards, which could result in an incremental and consistent improvement of scores on the state’s assessment tests in math and ELA.

Holocaust Center Gets 20-Year Lease Extension

Friday, 24 August 2012 00:00

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano was joined by Boris Chartan, founder and chairman emeritus of the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County, Howard Maier, chairman of the board, former Nassau County Executive Tom Gulotta and members of the Nassau County Jewish Advisory Council on Tuesday, Aug. 14, to sign a 20-year lease extension of the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center of Nassau County.  

“It is critical to support the Holocaust Memorial and Tolerance Center, not only to honor the lives that were lost and to celebrate the survivors who made it, but also so those of us alive today as well as future generations do not repeat the errors of our ancestors,” said County Executive Mangano. “The importance of the center is that it educates us to allow us to learn from the mistakes of the past and, from that knowledge, prevent this hatred of our fellow human beings from ever happening again.”

Annual block party raises awareness while providing a good time

On Tuesday, Aug. 7, the Glen Cove Police Department hosted National Night Out, a block party event intended as a way to bring the community together while raising awareness about crime prevention.

Bridge Street, a section of School Street and a section of Glen Street were blocked off so that pedestrians could wander freely, visit the booths of various vendors, take advantage of the free food being offered and dance to the sounds of the Les Stanco band. While the fresh pizza offered from La Famiglia, the ices from Rita’s and the food being served up from the Downtown Café were no doubt a big draw for kids and parents alike; local businesses, organizations and politicians were also present to spread the word about their offerings. Vendors included the Glen Cove Senior Center, Laffey Fine Homes, and free chair massages from Dr. Maxine Cappel Mayreis. Senator Carl Marcellino and Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton both set up camp to answer questions and deliver information about what their offices are currently doing on a state and county level.
