Green Ways to Keep Mosquitoes Away

Friday, 14 August 2009 00:00

The abundance of summer rain is bringing an abundance of mosquitoes. However, there are ways to control these disease-carrying pests. Here are some tips from Hicks Nurseries, located in Westbury, on how to repel mosquitoes by using these organic methods.

First, prevent mosquitoes from breeding.

Get rid of sources of standing water such as tins cans, plastic containers and old tires. Change bird bath water at least twice a week. If you have a pond, stock it with fish that eat mosquitoes and keep the edges clear of vegetation and debris.

 

Letter: BOE Should Define ‘Support’

Friday, 14 August 2009 00:00
I just read in this paper a letter by the Glen Cove Board of Education in which they say that “Dr. Aronstein has the complete support and respect of this board of education.” I think that they should define “support” and clarify whether or not they agree at any or all times with his decisions and policies. Many people in this community, including myself, believe that this cannot be true because they disagree at their public meetings. It is not possible for all members of any body who are doing their job representing the public, to agree unanimously all the time, since the very people they represent don’t always agree all the time. That is why there are an odd number of people on the school board, so that there is always a majority, often by only one. I think unanimous votes tend to be suspicious.
 

Letter: Thanks From the Glen Cove Hall of Fame Committee

Written by Luigi Gall,President Friday, 07 August 2009 00:00

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.

 

Letter: No to Waterfront

Written by Barbara Hall Friday, 07 August 2009 00:00

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.”

 

Letter: Board of Ed Supports Dr. Aronstein

Friday, 31 July 2009 00:00

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.

Letter: In Memory of Michael Galluccio

Friday, 31 July 2009 00:00

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.

Letter: A Letter Written to Mayor Suozzi From Residents of

Written by The Acerra, Anderson, Friday, 24 July 2009 00:00

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.

Last month the Glen Cove SAGE Foundation, Inc. sent out an appeal letter to all Glen Cove residents and businesses requesting your tax-deductible donation so that we may continue to expand our assistance for enhanced programs and services for the Glen Cove Senior Center. This assistance is particularly important during these trying economic times.

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.

 

Letter: Setting The Record Straight

Friday, 17 July 2009 07:33

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.
