After the resignation of Trustee Joel Sunshine last month, the Glen Cove City School District is in need of one more board member, and is trying to determine the best route to take. The greater part of the Aug. 26 meeting centered around a discussion by board members, the superintendent and the public about how soon to hold a vote and whether or not to “piggyback” on the Nov. 5 general election.
In memory of “Sweet Nicholas” Pedone, the Glen Cove City Council declared Aug. 30 to be Nicholas Pedone Day at last week’s meeting. Pedone died in May after a months-long battle with neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. He would have turned 8 years old on Aug. 30.
“I didn’t know how great of a community this was” until Nicholas’ diagnosis, said Josephine Pedone, Nicholas’ mother. “We recognize all of your efforts and now it’s our time to give back.”
If you build it, they will come.
And they have.
Open less than two months, Singleton’s Seafood Shack at Tappen Beach in Glenwood Landing, and just a seashell throw from Sea Cliff, is already a neighborhood hotspot. The restaurant sits pretty on a strand that typically isn’t hugely popular with beachgoers. In fact, when management was scouting the location, they were skeptical because “no one really comes to this beach.”
In the weeks that have followed since the announcement that Glen Cove Hospital would eliminate inpatient care, a growing number of local residents and officials have been voicing their concerns about the future of the hospital, including former Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi,
“I’m weighing in publicly on this issue because my private conversations with the North Shore-LIJ have not yielded the results I was hoping for,” said Suozzi, who lives in Glen
Cove and was mayor. “We recognize that there are enormous pressures facing the healthcare community, and understand that North Shore-LIJ does a great job in the face of these financial pressures, but they must recognize that this hospital is a central piece of the fabric of this community,” he continued.
It was a standing-room only, overflow crowd of excited friends and supporters at 149 Glen Street on Thursday, Aug. 15, as the Glen Cove Republican Committee opened its Campaign 2013 Headquarters. The Republican headquarters is the home of Team Spinello, the 2013 slate for Glen Cove Mayor and City Council. Team Spinello candidates are for
Mayor, Reggie Spinello; and for City Council: Anthony Gallo; Jr., Pamela Panzenbeck, Efraim Spagnoletti, Linda Darby, Kristina Heuser, and Charles Bozzello. It is also the political home of Glen Cove resident John DiMascio, the candidate for Nassau County Legislature to represent the newly-designated 11th District which includes Glen Cove.
A local woman pledged an ambitious and challenging goal for herself, one that will test her body to its limit while benefiting cancer research. Next month, Eva Casale plans on running from Oyster Bay to Jones Beach - and back. While the Ocean to Sound run is a popular 50 mile relay team event that takes a lot of training by itself, Casale is going to the extreme by running 100 miles all by herself, to raise money and awareness for cancer treatments.
Casale joined Team in Training in 2007, a year after donating a kidney to a stranger; an experience she says “changed her life.”
The “Little Italy of Long Island” held its 76th annual “Best Feast in the East” earlier this month. The turnout this year was bigger than ever as Glen Cove celebrated this authentic six-day Italian feast, where folks from near and far enjoyed the festivities and many worshiped in the Diocese of Rockville Center’s National Italian Parish to honor the church’s patron saint, St. Rocco.
Nassau County selected Nassau Events Center to redevelop Nassau Coliseum and the surrounding property, by offering the county a significantly sweeter deal.
Bruce Ratner, the developer of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and NEC’s chief executive, beat out Hank Ratner (no relation) and the Madison Square Garden Company after the county narrowed its choices to the two entertainment giants last month.
At a news conference in Mineola on Thursday, Aug. 15, Mangano noted revenue differences in the two proposals drove the final decision.
The dog days of August are here. Perfect time for kids to read Piper Gets a New Home, a book for children ages seven to 12, penned by local author Mariah Leal.
A devastating head-on collision left Leal unable to work. But when life throws you a curveball, sometimes it’s a dog that catches that ball—and your heart—and you run with it. And that is exactly what happened to Leal and her dog, Piper.
After learning of the downgrading of Glen Cove Hospital expected next year, the community has taken up its own fight against the proposed change. A rally was held last week in front of the hospital to send a message to the hospital’s administration that this city relies on the hospital and will not let it disappear without a fight, Mayor Suozzi has been leading the cause.
“We are here to try to get the hospital to postpone the decision until the full community has been informed,” Suozzi said to the crowd of about 200 people gathered around outside the hospital on St. Andrew’s Lane. “We are not here to demonize the hospital administrators; but to get them to come to the table to discuss the strategy. The news blindsided everyone...and I’m suspicious. I need your voices. If 300 people are behind me, that’s one thing. If 10,000 are behind me, that’s another.”
