It is funny how last fall the North Shore Historical Museum embarked on a mission to name the Old Courthouse. Well, apparently if you donate a very generous gift, like that of friends and family of Marguerite and Joe Suozzi, you can have a building named after you. Let us not forget the man who worked there for 30 years, the Honorable Joseph L. Vetrone, whose name isn’t there. If you serve your country in WWII, receive a Purple Heart, work for the City of Glen Cove for 30 years, apparently you have to pay your way on to getting something that deserves rightfully to be named after you. What a disgrace!
To talk big words is to present yourself and your opinion extravagantly, pompously and boastfully. It is a self-serving device that often backfires into causing a listener (reader) to lose interest, or worse, to lose respect for the big-talker.
Everyone should feel proud of what took place at the Loggia 1016 on July 2. I sure did.
The work of Loggia President Joseph Gallo, the scholarship committee, and the Loggia membership made a difference in the lives of 10 remarkable students that night.
As it was proven that the contamination was the runoff from the North Colony cesspools, an equitable and practical solution would be for the city to take advantage of the current low interest rate and take a 10-year bond to pay for the cost of building a pumping station and installing sewers in the North Colony. The annual interest and amortization cost of the bond should be prorated amongst the North Colony properties. The economic benefit of the sewers to them is four fold, namely:
1. It saves the property owners the cost of their cesspool maintenance.
On the behalf of the officers and members of the Globe and Anchor Detachment #225 of Glen Cove, I would like to thank Assemblyman Charles D. Lavine and State Senator Carl Marcellino for their efforts in securing the approval of designating a section of State Highway Rte. 107 to be renamed Sergeant Major Daniel Joseph Daly Memorial Highway. We would also like to thank Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo for signing the bill into law.
The official dedication will be held at a later day.

Sea Cliff residents Dina and Rollin have the right idea. They want to vote for Mayor Bruce Kennedy, who is running for a seat in the State Assembly, in the Republican Primary in September.
So, they temporarily changed their voter registration from Democrat to Republican by filling in an application at the post office and mailing it right from there to the Nassau County Board of Elections the same day. We can do the same if we mail off the request by July 15.
Kudos to Glen Cove for being the first municipality in Nassau County and the first in NY State to pass regulations pertaining to septic systems. Special thanks to Glen Cove City Councilman Tony Gallo for championing this cause. And let’s share the credit with Councilman Spagnoletti and Mayor Spinello, who have paid careful attention to this issue and come on board to do the right thing for our environment.
On Saturday June 14, several hundred Glen Cove residents were able to receive information about local services and programs that promote family health, family unity, and a substance abuse free family environment. The 7th Annual Family Awareness Day sponsored by SAFE’s Glen Cove PRIDE Project Coalition was a tremendous success.
On behalf of SAFE’s Glen Cove PRIDE Project Coalition, we wish to thank all who helped to make this possible: City of Glen Cove Community Development Agency (CDA), Parks and Recreation, City Hall, Emergency Medical Services and Fire Department, the Tobacco Action Coalition of Long Island, Kiwanis Club of Glen Cove, Glen Cove Day Care Center, chiropractor Maxine Mayreis, psychotherapist Gabriela Weinberg-Gitlin, GMA Martial Arts, Economic Opportunity Council (EOC), Cove Sports Academy and Nassau County Council of Girl Scouts.
Operation Neighborhood Pride: In conjunction with our Police Department, we have launched “Operation Neighborhood Pride,” a listening tour of our city. After mapping out a plan of action with Chief Whitton, Deputy Chief MacDonald, and Lieutenant Ortiz, we outlined a plan and started this project two weeks ago. We intend to visit every neighborhood in Glen Cove because there is no better way to get information about what’s going on in an area than to ask the people who live there. We chose the Landing as our starting point because of recent events and we are looking forward to hearing from all our residents regarding quality of life concerns that may exist in their area.
Recently the Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club celebrated its 20 Year Anniversary with a “Knight –Out” Fundraiser at the Knights of Columbus. We would like to acknowledge all the people and local businesses that continue to support our program. A portion of the proceeds raised will go to our annual scholarship awards given to Glen Cove High School seniors. Eligible are students that played in the Jr. Lacrosse program for a minimum of one year and continued with high school lacrosse and then on to attend college with the hopes of continuing their lacrosse careers.
