Rick Shalvoy Fights Cancer From a 19-Foot Boat
Rick Shalvoy battles the waters around Long Island every year, and wins his battle. But the greater war he fights is still not won. Since his first row in 1997, "Rick the Rower" has been circumnavigating the waters of Long Island with one mantra following him. Rick has vowed to "Row for a Cure" in the fight against breast cancer every year until a safe and effective therapy is discovered and available to patients. He is determined to raise money and awareness for the disease that afflicts one in eight women.

Through the combination of city resources, state and federal funding, the City of Glen Cove continues to revitalize its downtown. This is evident in the profusion of new businesses, including Swezey's Department Store, Ruby Tuesday's Restaurant, Staples, Annie Sez, Café Jalisco, Klippetts Children's Hair Salon and Fabulous Finds, to name just a few. Glen Cove has a new opportunity for improvement, as announced by Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp on July 30. Accompanied by State Assemblyman David Sidikman, Chamber of Commerce President Marie Coyle, and BID Executive Director Francine Ferrante, the mayor said, "I am pleased to announce that we were awarded a $65,000 New York State Department of Transportation Multi Modal grant made possible through the efforts of State Assemblyman David Sidikman. We will be able to replace our outdated, industrial motif lighting with antique design, energy efficient lampposts in the heart of our downtown at no cost to the city's taxpayers."
