The Villa at Glen Cove, (aka the Livingston Project), has become a lightning rod for opposition to the building of high-density, mega residential communities in our town. Thanks to a handful of grass roots activists, the call went out to an otherwise uninformed populace that this issue needed their immediate attention. To the surprise of the administration and the Planning Board, We the People came out in huge numbers ready for battle, and it was about time.
I am writing in response to the new state push for FULL DAY pre-kindergarten in public schools. As a recently retired teacher, continuing teachers’ union president, grandparent of a second-grader, and tax payer, I have this to say: Some basic facts that are not in dispute are that school districts are working under tight fiscal constraints that are threatening the basic education we currently are trying to provide in grades K through 12.
The Regency at Glen Cove is a premier assisted living facility enabling you or your loved one to enjoy all of the amenities of a boutique hotel along with the peace of mind provided by assisted living, in an ambiance of warmth and comfort.
A clothing drive to benefit The Salvation Army, hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Glen Cove, was held in early June in the upper parking area of the Glen Cove Senior Center on Glen Street and what a success it was!
I am your neighbor. A woman with a civic passion and a record of involvement and commitment to Glen Cove.
I want you to make an informed decision in this race. Please visit my website, www.terimoschetta.com, to learn more about my campaign. I’d love to hear from you, and hopefully meet you before Election Day to discuss your desires and ideas for the future of Glen Cove.
Unique to Joe Capobianco, who is running to become a member of the Glen Cove City Council this November, is that quite possibly a dozen guys in Glen Cove consider him their best friend. Among them are Steve Gonzalez, Sam Wallace and me.
Books won’t stay banned. They won’t burn, ideas won’t go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only sure weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. The source of better ideas is wisdom.

The week of Sept. 21-28 has been designated Banned Books Week by the Office of Intellectual Freedom of the American Library Association. During this time, libraries and schools around the country hold programs and readings to celebrate the “right to read.”
Think censorship and banning books are ancient history, or at least not problems we face here on Long Island? Unfortunately, that’s not the case. In fact, there are many myths and misconceptions about censorship that should be challenged. Here are four:
The Back to School event on Saturday, Aug. 30, sponsored by Calvary AME Church, EOC Glen Cove, and Glen Cove Housing Authority was a huge success. We would like to thank the following donors: Members of Calvary AME Church, Glen Cove Housing Authority, Glen Cove EOC, American Community Bank, T.D.

After the bantering back and fourth about who did more for GC and the court house saga I can’t help thinking about Bill Boeddener. Naming anything after him would be anathema to Bill, because he always believed those buildings belong to all Glen Covers.

I read in the most recent edition of the Record Pilot of your displeasure with the “Best Feast In The East.” How very sorry I am that you feel that way, sir. I suppose after 40 years you would see many changes and, I understand, that change is a bit difficult for some of us. The Feast has grown in tremendous proportions and guests who come to visit are in the thousands! The hundreds of volunteers who help “pull it off” are very dedicated each year in achieving a financial profit—enough to help sustain the upkeep of our beautiful Church of St. Rocco. It is not cheap to run such a wonderful Parish that we have. The sausage and pepper stand is only one source of income for us. We choose not to have an outside vendor in competition and we have that right. In regard to your comments about St. Rocco Bakery, they are a totally separate entity and, I am sure, must find Feast week quite profitable. Their excellent baked goods speak for themselves and deserve the attention that was given during Feast week…. All around, everyone was a winner – faith/family/fun/food.
Do try to visit again next year and enjoy yourself!
