Author Teaches Kids Importance Of Puppy Care

Written by Mary Awad Friday, 04 July 2014 00:00

On July 9, local Glen Cove author Mariah Leal will be hosting a workshop at Bayville Public Library to talk about her series of children’s books, The Adventures of Piper. They revolve around a Bull Mastiff puppy named Piper as she is taken into her new home and learns how to live and interact with people and other animals. 

 

Leal writes to educate others about puppy training and socialization in order to promote fruitful training and handling of dogs. In the United States there are an estimated 4.7 million dog bites a year and half

of them involve children; out of all the dogs that are put into shelters, 90% of them have had no training. Leal hopes to decrease these statistics. 

 

Council Seat Still Empty

Written by Jill Nossa Thursday, 03 July 2014 00:00

Months after the death of Councilman Nicholas DiLeo left a vacant seat on the Glen Cove City Council, the seat remains open, despite the efforts of the mayor and council members to reach an agreement.

In a meeting that quickly turned from ambitious yet efficient to contentious, at points getting downright ugly, the vote to appoint Joe Capobianco to the council was ultimately tabled.

 

The resolution for the appointment was saved until the very end of the meeting, and Mayor Reginald A. Spinello announced the decision to appoint Capobianco to the seat, reading the city charter, which states that the decision is left to the council for filling the seat until the next general election. He started to call for public comments when Councilman Tim Tenke suggested that was against protocol.

 

Marines Pay Tribute To Glen Cove Hero

Written by Tab Hauser Wednesday, 02 July 2014 00:00

Approximately 300 U.S. Marines and their marching  band visited Glen Cove on Saturday, June 21, to pay tribute to Glen Cove’s most famous soldier, Sergeant Daniel J. Daly, a two-time Medal of Honor winner. 

 

Sgt. Daly lived from 1873 to 1937 and had the distinction of being one of 19 soldiers ever to receive the Medal of Honor twice and also only one of two Marines to receive it twice as well. The first Medal of

Honor was awarded  during the Boxer Rebellion in 1900 for what was called the Battle of Peking where he single-handedly fought off 200 attackers. The second Medal of Honor was received for a battle in

Haiti in 1915 where he lead a group of 35 Marines to beat off an ambush of 400 Cacos.

 

Glen Head Man Creates Job Website For Youths

Written by Aaron Cheris Friday, 27 June 2014 00:00

When Thomas Cerna and his wife were going on a one-week vacation last summer, they found themselves in a dilemma. Their plants had to be watered, and the girl they usually hired to do the job was also going away that week. After his plants didn’t get water for a week, Cerna had an idea to make sure that never happened again. 

 

The idea was simple: create a website for homeowners to post jobs that need to be done and local youths could respond to job listings.

 

“It would have been a good thing if we could have had a way to reach out to local kids in the community,” Cerna, 54, said.

In a celebration that took place 70 years after the end of WWII, the Glenwood Landing American Legion Post 336 in Glen Head recognized those veterans who fought for our country’s freedom and are still able to take pride in being a part of history.  A special dinner and ceremony was held on Saturday, June 14, in which both the older generation of veterans and the younger generation of students who are active in the community were given awards and certificates. The ‘Awards Night’ spotlighted veterans, Eagle Scouts, college scholarship winners and the great projects at the American Legion. 

Two men honored on this evening were veterans Leon Malinoski and William Swift. Both were presented with certificates and D-Day commemorative coins.

 

Malinoski, 88, joined the Navy in 1943 and was in for three years. Having  “met a girl” during his time in service, he says that when the war was over, he was offered a promotion but didn’t take it.

Written by Gary Simeone Friday, 20 June 2014 00:00

Glen Cove resident Eva Casale is probably one of the fittest human beings you will ever meet. The long distance runner has competed in the New York City Marathon five times and last September ran a 100 mile event from Jones Beach to Oyster Bay to support the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. On July 7 she’ll participate in the 7-7-7 Challenge, running seven marathons in seven days to raise money for the organization.

 

“I actually came up with the name of the 7-7-7 Challenge myself because I’ll start on July 7 and run seven marathons for seven straight days,” said Casale. “Each day I’ll be in a different community on Long Island and run a 26.2 mile course to help raise money for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, which is an organization that I strongly believe in.”

On a warm, clear evening in late May, a group of Locust Valley High School students performed a concert in Morgan Park to raise money for cancer research. The concert was the brainchild of siblings Greg and Amanda Caso, whose mother was diagnosed with breast cancer last fall.

 

The concert on May 30 featured 15 acts of student performers, from vocalists to instrumentalists to bands and raised about $1,400 for Team CasoLearning, the Relay for Life team organized by the Caso siblings, who are both seniors at the high school.

 

Sea Cliff Muralist Retires To New Canvas

Written by Marilou Giammona Wednesday, 18 June 2014 00:00

Sea Cliff resident Mark Fay may be about to retire from his teaching position at Munsey Park Elementary School, but the inspiration he has brought to youngsters for decades will remain. During his 29-year tenure at the school, the muralist has adorned the walls with seven murals, which range from seven feet to 90 feet. Prior to Munsey Park, he taught in Port Washington for 12 years and is currently an adjunct professor at Hofstra University.

 

“As an art teacher for 41 years, I’ve tried to inspire my students from kindergarten through post grad to explore their own creativity,” Fay said. “It has been a very rewarding journey.”

Now Fay will embark on a new journey.
