On Monday, July 27 the 21st 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 Maccarone Scholarship Fund and to date, approximately $45,000 has been awarded to outstanding academic-athletic students. This year, as a result of the 2008 golf tournament revenues, we awarded $4,500 in scholarships to six graduating seniors at Glen Cove High School.
I am at a loss to understand the impetus behind the massive waterfront project when, in the legal notices posted in the newspaper, Glen Cove has provided the public with countless reasons why this plan should not go forward, such as:
“Modify existing visual character of the water and altered views.”
We are writing to make it clear to the Glen Cove community that Superintendent of Schools Dr. Laurence Aronstein has the complete support and respect of this board of education. Dr. Aronstein continues to do an outstanding job for our district, as demonstrated by our fourth straight year of increased Assessment scores and Regents scores, while during the same four-year period, he has ensured that Glen Cove has had one of the very lowest school tax increases on Long Island. He certainly cares about the health and well-being of our children, all while searching for ways for us to cut costs. We encourage the Glen Cove community to work in a positive, professional and productive manner with Dr. Aronstein, his staff, and the board of education, to continue the revitalization of our school district.

On July 16, the City of Glen Cove lost one of its finest members, Michael Galluccio. To know Mike was to love Mike. He had a great personality and a wonderful sense of humor. There was a unique tone in his voice whenever he would say hello or joke around that never failed to put a smile on your face or make you laugh. He was always fun to be around, and how lucky we are to have known him and to have called him a friend. He was a “class act.” At the funeral mass, Father Michael Ralph described him perfectly with a few simple words: “Mike was a heck of a guy.” We love you Mike and you will be dearly missed by family and friends. Mike, in the words of Ralph Kramden, “You’re the Greatest!” Rest In Peace.

Dear Charge d’Affaires Khoc:
I write to protest the atavistic treatment meted out to the 13 young women arrested at a Khartoum café for wearing trousers, 10 of whom were publicly flogged and fined.
For the past two years, during the first weekend in August, Coles Street would come alive as we celebrated what had become a Landing tradition, the annual Coles Street Block Party. A celebration that had quickly become a much-anticipated event by not just the residents of Coles Street, but our fellow Landing residents who would be invited to join in. Our block party was a true example of the melting pot our neighborhood is. People from many cultures and generations came out into the street to see neighbors old and new to share stories, food, pictures, music, and catch up on neighborhood news.
Your dollars have helped us provide additional funding for a yearlong series of Life Long Learning programs; blood pressure screening and health and wellness classes; data collection required for government funding and adult day services for the frail elderly.
First Mike Dukakis and then John Kerry made the same mistake when running for president. They tried to take the high road and ignored their critics. As a result, the impression that was left was that their critics must be right, otherwise, they would have set the record straight. So, let me again set the record straight.
Banking on the fact that Sea Cliff and its surrounding neighbors would embrace the ridiculous idea of a three-hour round of golf through its parks, ball fields and even private properties (over 40, in fact), we put it together and it worked! Eighteen hundred dollars was raised for the Sea Cliff Library and another $300 for the Sea Cliff Fire Dept. Associated Press liked the idea enough that they did a national story on it!
Last weekend, the Business Improvement District began its Downtown Sounds Music Series on Friday evening July 3, with the music of Uppercut. The Village Square was filled with more than 200 residents and the surrounding downtown sidewalks and restaurants were filled to capacity with patrons as our city’s summer of music began.
