  • NEWS: Nassau County Planning Commission Recommends Denial of Glengariff Proposal

    On Oct. 1, the Nassau County Planning Commission rendered their decision recommending the denial of the proposed Glengariff Senior Manor facility on Dosoris Lane in Glen Cove. Following the Glen Cove Planning Board's 4-2 vote giving its preliminary approval several weeks ago, (without the vote of freshman board member Nick DiLeo who was appointed to the board late in the Glengariff process), the matter was sent to the County Planning Commission as required by law. According to Donald Lister, a zoning administrator for the Nassau County Planning Commission, the commission's major objection is that the proposed facility is not being constructed in a pre-1930 building. "Regarding the Certificate of Need, (CON), we could have left the matter for local determination based on the applicant obtaining it. Under General Municipal Law 239, we review applications submitted by a municipality. The municipality is our client and the public can not speak during our meetings. There were people at our meeting but I couldn't tell you if they were there for the Glengariff Senior Manor. We have recommended that the project be denied. The resolution will be ready by the end of the week and the issue is coming back to Glen Cove. Our decision can be overruled with a super majority vote, [four plus one in the case of the Glen Cove Planning Board]." In giving its preliminary approval, the Glen Cove Planning Board voted 4-2 with one person not voting. As it stands, the super-majority needed to overrule the county does not exist unless one of the two dissenting planning board members changes his mind. FULL STORY

  • NEWS: Glen Cove's Proposed Budget Approved

    A special city council meeting was convened by Glen Cove Mayor Thomas Suozzi on Oct. 6 to consider the adoption of the city's 1999 budget.

Mayor Suozzi reiterated his budget message during the special meeting prior to the page-by-page review of the spending plan. There was considerable debate between the two Republican city councilmen, (Steve Gonzalez and John Maccarone), and Mayor Suozzi along old, familiar party lines. Councilmen Gonzalez and Maccarone made the following statements on Wednesday morning, Oct. 7 to explain why they voted against the adoption of the budget. FULL STORY

  • SPORTS: Big Red Nips Roosevelt 33-32

    The Big Red advanced to a 3-0 record with a wild 33-32 victory over #4 seeded Roosevelt High School this past Saturday. The game ended with Glen Cove holding onto a one-point lead; Roosevelt had a fourth and inches at Glen Cove's 15-yard line. The Defensive line of Ian McCloskey, Angelo Filippone and David Graziosi held up the QB sneak forcing a fumble that scrambling Ricky Johnson recovered. Roosevelt came to town with "Blue Chip" running back Jerome Pettus. The Big Red "D" was able to contain Pettus (18 carries - 99 yards), but not stop him. Pettus threw for one touchdown, ran for another and ran back a punt 65 yards for a TD. Special teams again shined for Glen Cove; Mike Peluso and Victor Hidalgo both recovered onside kicks expertly placed by kicker Juan Hernandez. Offensively, the Big Red churned out 300 yards vs. a hard-hitting Rough Rider Defense. Matt Capobianco (20 carries for 102 yards) ran for a 25-yard TD and scored on a 10-yard TD pass. Big Doni Baskin had 81 yards on 15 carries and scored the winning touchdown on a 5-yard plunge that capped a 65-yard drive. QB Dustin Grosso showed his versatility, in addition to throwing three TD passes, one to Capobianco, one to Peluso and one to Andrea Devone, Grosso also caught a 23-yard reverse pass from split-end Johnson.
