The Glen Cove City Council meeting opened on a solemn note on Tuesday, April 29, as Mayor Reginald Spinello and members of the council took a few minutes to honor the late Councilman Nicholas DiLeo, who died on April 21. A bouquet of flowers was placed next to his name plate and a moment of silence was held for him before the start of the meeting.
“We are here tonight with heavy hearts,” said Mayor Spinello. “We lost a good friend and we will continue to pay our respects.”
“Nick was a friend...he respected everyone’s opinions and views,”said Tenke. “He was more than a councilman: he was a businessman, and a family man...he loved this community and viewed it as an extended family...it is a tremendous loss.” He noted DiLeo’s
sense of humor and related some stories about how he could “make you feel better when you were down.”
Nearly 250 people attended the Chamber of Commerce’s 17th Annual Culinary Delights on Monday, April 28 at the historic Glen Cove Mansion, where they had an opportunity to sample food and beverages from dozens of different area businesses.

SAFE visited the Glen Cove Senior Center last month to share important information on the perils of gambling – when it is a problem, where help is available and the signs to recognize if it may become a problem. Social worker Aimee Abraham presented a workshop that included a PowerPoint presentation, a video, as well as a question and answer period toward the end of the program.
There are five different types of gambling, she said. They include the social gambler that engages in the activity for leisure, the problem gambler who’s involvement is more excessive, a pathological gambler who has an uncontrollable response to gambling, the organized crime gambler that launders illegal funds through illegal resources and the professional gambler who does it for a living in a controlled fashion and can deal with their loses.
Glen Cove was in mourning last week following the sudden death of Councilman Nicholas DiLeo, 56, who had served on the Glen Cove City Council since 2006. He was re-elected last November.
A city council meeting had been scheduled for Tuesday, April 22, but was canceled after the news of DiLeo’s passing.
The Glen Cove Junior Baseball & Softball – Rob Kormoski League held its annual parade and opening day ceremonies on April 19. Opening day marked the 65th year of the volunteer organization, which is one of the longest tenured organizations in the city.
The parade began at the Robert M. Finley Middle School horse shoe and traversed through the village, ending at the John J. Maccarone Memorial stadium. The parade was led by Special Police Chief Michael DiLeo, followed by the Glen Cove PBA Honor Guard, the Glen Cove High School Drum Line, and 40 teams of children and coaches, carrying sponsor banners, all of which was anchored by The Glen Cove Fire Dept. Hook & Ladder Company.
The Glen Cove Board of Education adopted the proposed budget of $79,281,428 for 2014-15 at last week’s board meeting. The proposed budget carries a tax levy impact of 1.58 percent, which complies with the NYS tax levy cap law. The budget increase is $2,610,796 over the current year’s budget.
Sgt. Ryan Nardone brought a powerful pre-prom presentation to juniors at Glen Cove High School prior to the junior prom. SAFE’s Glen Cove PRIDE Project Coalition’s School Committee invited Sgt. Nardone to speak to students about the ramifications of Social Host law and of the dangers of underage drinking and driving. His objective, to keep kids safe on prom night and throughout the year is an objective that SAFE’s Coalition is closely committed to. The implementation of this prevention education lecture was a direct result of the 2012 Bach Harrison Prevention Needs Assessment which indicated that underage drinking continues to be a problem among Glen Cove youth.
Gregory Caso of Locust Valley was dealt a hard blow early on in his senior year at Locust Valley High School with his mother’s diagnosis of breast cancer. He and his twin sister, Amanda, however, are using their energy in a positive way and focusing on creative ways to raise money and awareness.
Last fall they formed a Relay for Life team to honor their mother, and in December came up with the idea of putting on an outdoor concert to raise money for sponsoring the team.
“We knew it would be big and had to be outdoors, with a stage, so holding the concert at school was not an option,” says Caso.
City Stadium in Glen Cove was a mob scene of tiny egg hunters on Thursday, April 17, as at least 100 kids scoured the fields and claimed more than 8,000 eggs in less than three minutes. The annual egg hunt attracted kids from ages 3 to 10, most of whom were prepared with baskets, bags and buckets for storing the candy-filled plastic eggs.
