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.
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.
