Drive Safely Schools Are Open: Glen Cove students have begun their school year. Please obey the law and drive safely. When a stopped school bus flashes its red light(s), all traffic approaching from either direction must stop. Drivers can’t proceed until the red lights stop flashing. Don’t text or talk on a cell phone while driving—this law applies to drivers of all ages.
Speeders Beware: Drivers speeding through our streets, you are now forewarned. The Police Department’s ongoing initiative to monitor speed conditions in various locations throughout our city is coming to a neighborhood near you.
As fighting rages between Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza, many of us find ourselves faced with questions and concerns. What can we do? How can we help? How can this horror go away?
These were the questions on people’s minds as Dr. Asaf Romirowsky, Middle East Analyst and Historian, spoke to a crowd of more than 100 people at the Mid-Island Y JCC in Plainview about the current Mid-East conflict.
So much has already been said about Robin Williams’ death by suicide that there really isn’t much left to say. While shining a light on the serious issues of substance abuse, mental illness and suicide helps to remove the stigma attached, journalists and radio and TV personalities have an obligation to their readers, viewers, etc. to report the news in a responsible way. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.
If you’ve visited your doctor in the last year, then you probably had to fill out a ridiculous amount of paperwork - most of it seemingly redundant. The cause of this is the push from the federal government for medical practices to adopt an electronic medical record (EMR) system.
An EMR is a platform, either cloud- or software-based, to collect patient information all into one place, making evaluation of a patient’s overall health, in theory, a simpler task. However, such platforms have the potential for privacy risks if the proper security precautions are not taken. Although the government has required physicians to adopt EMR systems, as of now the responsibility for maintaining Internet security and privacy lies with the health provider.
While perusing the new summer fare that is being offered up in the name of entertainment, I was prompted to reflect on just one word: morals. Where have they gone? I seem to recall growing up in the 1950s with a solid sense of right from wrong. Oh sure, there were others who weren’t totally in step with my Catholic school values but nonetheless, we all had some sort of standards that we lived by.
On Monday, July 21 the 26th Annual John Maccarone Hall of Fame Golf Tournament was held at the Glen Cove Golf Course. All the money raised from this tournament goes to the John MaccaroneScholarship Fund and to date approximately $77,000 has been awarded to outstanding student athletes. This year, as a result of the 2013 golf tournament revenues and the generosity of the family of the late Dr. Sidney Canarick, we awarded $6,000 in scholarships to five graduating seniors at Glen Cove High School.
Just hours before the Glen Cove Planning Board Meeting on Tuesday, July 29, the board removed from its agenda the Adoption of the Findings for the Villa Project. This has been moved to the September 2014 Planning Board meeting.
It’s too bad that “One Angry Jon L. Vetrone” had to try casting a cloud over Sunday’s dedication of the 1907 Old Courthouse in Glen Cove as the “Marguerite and Joseph Suozzi Building.” The letter writer took half a page (Record Pilot, July 30-August 5) to 1. purposely bad-mouth and disrespect the entire Suozzi family; 2. actually besmirch the good name of his own father, the late Joseph L. Vetrone, who served as the city’s judge for 30 years; and 3. arbitrarily drag in the good name of present judge Richard McCord because he supposedly was the protege of Judge Vetrone. He did nothing to venerate his dad, already a beloved icon of the community.
What a colossal blunder, Angry Jon, to disrupt, disturb and disregard an entire heritage of a proud city. Sour grapes in The Orchard? Very poor form indeed.
Late Sunday night, June 29, my husband David needed emergency medical services. We reluctantly headed for the Glen Cove Hospital because of all the changes and bad publicity. However, he was in such pain that we went to the closest place. It was a GREAT DECISION. It SAVED his life.
The saga of Sea Cliff Mayor Bruce Kennedy’s efforts to seek higher office continues for us to both enjoy and empathize. The man certainly has persistence, in addition to his ability to lead.
To recap, (1) Kennedy was for asked by the Republicans to run State Assembly in April. (2) The Conservatives said they could not support Kennedy, because he had performed two same-sex marriages in
Sea Cliff. (3) They said it would be okay, though, if he renounced those actions. (4) He refused, saying he could not and would not because he was bound to perform the marriages by a state law passed in 2011. (5) Kennedy was dropped and replaced by the GOP. (6) Kennedy said he would continue to seek the GOP nomination by forcing a primary.
