Letter: Thanks to Our Local Businesses

Written by Karen Ferguson Friday, 18 December 2009 00:00

I remember when I was a teenager growing up in Glen Cove I would go downtown and walk from store to store with my friends. Anyone who grew up here knows how things have changed. We don’t have the businesses that we once had, but those that we have are needed.

I was in a pinch two weeks ago for a nice outfit to wear and was so grateful for our Annie Sez. I had something to wear without having to leave town. This past weekend, a little behind in my holiday decorating, I needed to buy new outside lights. My first efforts were to purchase through the larger stores, but they were all sold out. It then dawned on me to try Charles of Glen Cove. Not only did they have boxes of lights, they had all kinds of hooks and a helpful friendly staff that were eager to assist. I was again, so grateful. These are only two recent events that bring to mind our need as a community to support our local businesses. They may need our support, but we need them too!

Letter: A Fire-Roasted Thanksgiving

Friday, 04 December 2009 00:00

In the midst of what was about to become an eventful Thanksgiving Day, it chaotically turned into a whirlwind of excitement on Guilfoy Street. A little after one o’clock in the afternoon the alarming phone call came in.  My mother shouted there was a fire in Grandma Rose’s kitchen rushing out of the house in a frenzy all to run to Grandma’s to see the Glen Cove Fire Department was there to rescue our turkey dinner. Our precious turkey that lay roasting in Grandma’s oven was slowly catching fire unbeknownst to my family and me, until flames and roaring smoke were too black to see each other.


Letter: Breaking the Law or Revenue Generating?

Friday, 04 December 2009 00:00

On Dec. 1, I started my day. I left my home in Glen Cove, where I have lived for over 34 years. I drove through our beautiful town to Starbucks. I ordered my coffee. I had to wait while they brewed a fresh pot. I looked around while waiting. School Street was decorated for the holidays - Rita’s new Italian ice store, Gold Coast Realty, the new jewelry store. I felt good. School Street was breathing again. Starbucks gave me my coffee free because of the wait. I was happy to be in my town.


Editorial: Tom Suozzi

Written by Matthew A. Piacentini Wednesday, 02 December 2009 20:36
Not speaking from any political bent, it was simply an interesting run as journalists to follow Tom Suozzi’s terms as county executive. He was working to helm a county through an urgent financial crisis and complex social evolution and he acted as such - bringing brave ideas to the table on issues ranging from debt, to crime, to shrinking industry, to growing poverty to the exodus of young people and the loss of natural open spaces.

Letter: Thanks for Passing Legislation

Written by Susan Somerville, RN Friday, 27 November 2009 10:46

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association is deeply appreciative that the Nassau County Executive and the Legislature have approved the legislation that requires certain chain restaurants to post calorie information on menus and menu boards. The policy will directly empower consumers to make healthier choices for themselves and their families.

Heart Disease and stroke remain the counties’, the states’ and unfortunately, the nation’s number one risk of death. Obesity directly results in dangerous conditions for your heart, including high cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. By allowing consumers to know the calorie count of the items they purchase at chain restaurants, we are assisting individuals in the knowledge that certain foods will be less likely to make them overweight or obese.

According to a July 2009 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans are heavier than ever, with more than 26 percent of our country’s population now confirmed as fully obese. Through menu labeling, consumers are motivated to make smarter decisions and live healthier lives. By approving this measure, the County Executive and the County Legislature have provided a welcome tool in our battle against the obesity epidemic.

On behalf of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, I applaud you for approving this policy.

Letter: Thank You Marie Coyle

Written by Robert N. Pemberton, Sr. Friday, 27 November 2009 00:00

Marie Coyle’s scrutiny of both me and Assemblyman Lavine on the subject of the unpopular quarterly MTA Payroll Tax he supported and voted for is not only commendable, but is also objective. I find no fault with her criticism of me. The dialog she describes as having had with Assemblyman Lavine is enlightening. I believe her veracity to be accurate. All of this is an indicator of her interest in, and knowledge of the pulse of our local business community.

It is gratifying to learn she is also vehemently opposed to the extremely regressive MTA Tax and that she has made this fact known to Assemblyman Lavine. Hopefully, more of your readers will do the same. His office is at 70 Glen Street and his phone number is 676-0050.

I encourage Ms. Coyle to continue interacting with Assemblyman Lavine in his office on this volatile matter. She and the Chamber of Commerce are spheres of influence in Glen Cove. Since he agrees that she and the Chamber have raised some valid issues it might be in his best interests to now take a positive step forward by sponsoring legislation to immediately rescind this unfair quarterly MTA Payroll Tax.

I’m not going to hold my breath that he will in fact do this, but I do want to bring to his attention that if he doesn’t do something “real quick like,” there is the possibility that the Nassau County election phenomenon of Nov. 3, 2009 might in turn not be too kind to his re-election success on Nov. 4, 2010.

Between now and then, because of the unpopular quarterly MTA Payroll Tax he supported, I anticipate, as each quarterly MTA Payroll Tax comes due, he will experience proportionately reduced campaign financing and an increasing groundswell of voter discontent. I’ll leave it to your readers to decide at the polls on Nov. 4, 2010 whether our Chuck Lavine is part of the Albany problem, or part of the Albany solution?

In closing, may I express my gratitude to Ms. Coyle for taking the time to contact your paper describing her feelings, interest and positive actions in this matter of mutual concern.



Letter: Thanks for the Support From Linda Darby

Written by Linda Darby Friday, 20 November 2009 00:00

I would like to thank the people of Glen Cove who supported my run for city council in the recent election, including the other members of the Glen Cove Alliance and the Republican Party.

The experience was an enlightening adventure for me and I enjoyed meeting and speaking with many residents I otherwise might not have met. I will continue to be a concerned and involved citizen of the community I love.

I would like to congratulate the re-elected administration and I hope that our city prospers and develops positively during the next two years.
