The Glen Cove Fire Department now has a piece of history in Pratt Park. Twelve years after the attacks on the twin towers, an artifact from the site has been created into a monument, dedicated to members of the Glen Cove Fire Department.
The section of a beam retrieved from the site was secured by the Glen Cove Chamber of Commerce two years ago, and Executive Director Phyllis Gorham had been coordinating the creation of the beam into an outdoor sculpture for all to admire and reflect on ever since.
What do a Westchester waste treatment plant, the Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, a sculptor and a ribbon weaver have in common? The answer will be revealed at an artist’s reception in the Atrium of the Tilles Center on Sunday, Sept. 15 from 2 to 5 p.m. , when the installation “Sea Change” will be unveiled.
“Sea Change” is a collaborative effort of Glen Head sculptor, Barbara Grossman Karyo, and Locust Valley ribbon weaver, Sally Shore. The installation, created almost entirely of plastic items and other detritus invading our natural environment, evokes the experience of being underwater in a colorful, whimsical way and, at the same time, makes a very powerful statement about the damaging effects such waste has on our local waters.
Dogs, kids and music lovers all had a good time at the grand opening of Green Forest Veterinary Hospital in Glen Cove, celebrated some eight months after the facility actually opened.
The festivities on Sunday, Aug. 18, offered a little something for everyone, including catered food from Tappo in Glen Cove, a bounce house for the kids and live music from Jelly Band. Pets competed for ‘best costume.’ Volunteers for
Wildlife gave demonstrations and tours.
North Shore Schools Super-intendent Dr. Ed Melnick gave a brief history of the upcoming bond referendum and discussed how the school district finalized the current $19.6 million bond proposal.
“The process began two years ago when we started out with a committee in each school building,” said Dr. Melnick. “We originally came up with a figure of $110 million for a list of capital projects and were able to whittle the number down to the current figure.”
A crowd of about 500 people gathered at the second rally to save the Glen Cove Hospital on Saturday, Aug. 31, a more organized and informative event than the first. Residents waved signs urging the North Shore Health System to “Save
Our Hospital” while local politicians, hospital employees and residents with personal stories to share took to the microphone.
Speaking on a stage set up behind the Glen Cove Public Library, Mayor Ralph Suozzi opened the rally with an explanation of intent.
Vietnam veteran Sam Esposito was reunited with his Army buddies and received an inconceivably gracious welcome while attending their Company C/22 Reunion in Oklahoma this past June, an experience Sam says he owes, in part, to coverage he received in the Record Pilot.
In 2009 Sam was honored as a decorated Vietnam Vet in Glen Cove’s Memorial Day Parade and Ceremonies. The Record Pilot had pre- and post-parade coverage which included an in-depth story, written by his wife Diane, detailing Sam’s experiences serving in Vietnam in 1967-68. The story stated that Sam was attached to Company C, 1st
Battalion, 22nd Infantry, 4th Division, along with a mention of an infamous battle on Chu Moor Hill.
With the news of Glen Cove Hospital downsizing being forefront on most residents’ minds, learning about the lawsuit the city filed against the hospital has undoubtedly raised a lot of questions, one that was answered at the city council meeting held on Aug. 27 in the main chambers of Glen Cove City Hall. Though there were 21 items on the agenda, a fair amount of time was spent on this topic.
The city is suing the hospital over elevated “levels of freon found in the water well,” Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi explained, when resident Pasquale Cervasio raised the question.
After the resignation of Trustee Joel Sunshine last month, the Glen Cove City School District is in need of one more board member, and is trying to determine the best route to take. The greater part of the Aug. 26 meeting centered around a discussion by board members, the superintendent and the public about how soon to hold a vote and whether or not to “piggyback” on the Nov. 5 general election.
In memory of “Sweet Nicholas” Pedone, the Glen Cove City Council declared Aug. 30 to be Nicholas Pedone Day at last week’s meeting. Pedone died in May after a months-long battle with neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. He would have turned 8 years old on Aug. 30.
“I didn’t know how great of a community this was” until Nicholas’ diagnosis, said Josephine Pedone, Nicholas’ mother. “We recognize all of your efforts and now it’s our time to give back.”
If you build it, they will come.
And they have.
Open less than two months, Singleton’s Seafood Shack at Tappen Beach in Glenwood Landing, and just a seashell throw from Sea Cliff, is already a neighborhood hotspot. The restaurant sits pretty on a strand that typically isn’t hugely popular with beachgoers. In fact, when management was scouting the location, they were skeptical because “no one really comes to this beach.”
