Record-Pilot Reunites Vet With Army Pals

Written by Jill Nossa Saturday, 07 September 2013 00:00

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.

Parents to offer scholarship after heartbreaking loss

“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.”

Speaking rally planned for Aug. 31

In the weeks that have followed since the announcement that Glen Cove Hospital would eliminate inpatient care, a growing number of local residents and officials have been voicing their concerns about the future of the hospital, including former Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi,

 

“I’m weighing in publicly on this issue because my private conversations with the North Shore-LIJ have not yielded the results I was hoping for,” said Suozzi, who lives in Glen

Cove and was mayor. “We recognize that there are enormous pressures facing the healthcare community, and understand that North Shore-LIJ does a great job in the face of these financial pressures, but they must recognize that this hospital is a central piece of the fabric of this community,” he continued.

Runner set to run 100 miles to support Leukemia Society

A local woman pledged an ambitious and challenging goal for herself, one that will test her body to its limit while benefiting cancer research. Next month, Eva Casale plans on running from Oyster Bay to Jones Beach - and back. While the Ocean to Sound run is a popular 50 mile relay team event that takes a lot of training by itself, Casale is going to the extreme by running 100 miles all by herself, to raise money and awareness for cancer treatments.

 

Casale joined Team in Training in 2007, a year after donating a kidney to a stranger; an experience she says “changed her life.”
