Mathnasium is now open on School Street in Glen Cove for students of all ages to improve upon their math skills.
Brijesh Parekh, owner of the Glen Cove franchise, first became interested in working for Mathnasium after learning about their curriculum at another franchise on Long Island.
“When I came across Mathnasium, it interested me the way they taught the kids,” Parekh said. “Math was always up my ally.”
A major step forward was announced last week for re-opening Crescent Beach and protecting our waters in general when officials gathered to discuss a $2 million Nassau County investment that will study sewering Crescent Beach and Sea Cliff Avenue.
“It’s important that we reopen Crescent Beach so that it once again serves as a beautiful destination for families, seniors and beachgoers,” said County Executive Edward Mangano. “The installation of sewers in this North Shore is an important public health initiative as it will protect the local environment and improve the Long Island Sound so that our recreational fishermen and residents can rely on these waters for enjoyment and business alike. I thank Mayor Spinello for his commitment to this project and for dedicating the resources necessary to identify which sewered areas should be incorporated into the county’s sewage collection.”
Last week, Sea Cliff Mayor Bruce Kennedy officially announced his candidacy for New York State’s 5th Senate District. The previous week, he became a Democrat after being ousted by the Nassau GOP as a Republican Assembly Candidate for implementing New York’s Marriage Equality Law and officiating same sex weddings.
“This is about being a public servant,” Kennedy said. “I took an oath to uphold the constitution and the laws of the State of New York.”
It was special night on Tuesday, July 15 at Glen Cove City Hall, as former Councilman Anthony Jimenez was voted in by a count of 7-0 to replace late Councilman Nick DiLeo on the City Council. He will take the seat of DiLeo, who passed away in April, until the election date on Nov. 4.
“I am truly honored to have the opportunity to replace my good friend, Nick DiLeo, on the City Council,” said Jimenez. “I will do my job to the best of my ability during my time with council.”
Glen Cove Mayor Reginald Spinello said he was honored to have Jimenez fill the position until the general election, which will take place in early November.
The Village of Sea Cliff took the time to show area residents that July 4 is not just about BBQs and fireworks, but about patriotism and freedom. On the morning of July 4, under overcast skies, 300 or so people gathered in Sea Cliff to celebrate Independence Day.
The festivities started with Mayor Bruce Kennedy ringing the Liberty Bell on the green in front of the library. This was followed by Sara Garry and Ruben Shonik playing “Yankee Doodle” on the flute and drum with, Boy Scout Troop 43 marching behind them to present the colors and lead in the Pledge of Allegiance. Lesley Pryde Haley sang “The Star Spangled Banner” next.
Downtown Glen Cove was abuzz during last Thursday evening’s bi-monthly car meet, Autostrade Glen Cove.
This event, sponsored by Martino Auto Concepts of Glen Cove, is held at the corner of Glen and School Streets. More than 125 vehicles showed up and gave a $10 donation to the Glen Cove Volunteer Fire Department as the required entrance fee.
Jewelry designer Paola Giordano has been creating wearable art for more than a decade, showcasing her pieces at select stores and craft fairs. Her long-term dream was to have her own gallery, but the costs and logistics involved in owning a storefront didn’t seem worth it. So, she decided to go in a different direction with a mobile gallery, in the form of a refurbished FedEx truck.
“For a couple of years now, I have been mulling over the idea of opening a gallery, and had also been considering purchasing an old truck, and seeing what I could convert it into,” says Giordano.
“Recently, an opportunity presented itself, and I purchased an old FedEx truck, and revamped it into what will be Long Island’s first mobile art gallery.”
Glen Cove School Board President Richard Maccarone was officially sworn in at Thursday night’s annual reorganization meeting. After serving as a board trustee for the 2013-14 school year, Maccarone assumed the role of board president, a position he held in the 2011-12 school year before taking a one-year hiatus. Maria Rianna was sworn in as school superintendent, Donna Brady was sworn in as board vice president, and Barrie Dratch and Maureen Pappachristou were sworn in for three-year terms as board trustees.
“I was board president two years ago and I’m happy that the board has enough faith in me to re-elect me once again to this position,” said Maccarone. “This is one of the best boards we’ve had in a
long time and I believe our school district is headed in the right direction. I have only one goal in mind and that is to make this school district better.”
Dozens of kids participated in the annual Children’s Bike Parade celebrating Independence Day in Glen Cove on Saturday, July 5. Rescheduled from July 4 due to rain, the parade had a large turnout of kids dressed in red, white and blue, with their bikes also decorated festively. Mayor Reginald Spinello, Legislator Delia DeRiggi-Whitton and City Council members Pamela Panzenbeck, Tony Gallo, Jr. and Efraim Spagnoletti also participated in the parade, as well as many parents. Mayor Spinello offered the kids a chance to go up on stage and sing a song of their choice; several youngsters gave heartfelt renditions of “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and “Call Me Maybe.”
Cheryl Carmody started the parade 32 years ago because she wanted to keep the "hometown" feel of the holiday alive for her daughter, who was 2 at the time. It has grown into annual tradition that kids look forward to every year.
