More Protests For Hospital Closing

Written by Jill Nossa Friday, 30 August 2013 00:00

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.”

Lease faces review by county legislature, NIFA

Nassau County selected Nassau Events Center to redevelop Nassau Coliseum and the surrounding property, by offering the county a significantly sweeter deal. 


Bruce Ratner, the developer of the Barclays Center in Brooklyn and NEC’s chief executive, beat out Hank Ratner (no relation) and the Madison Square Garden Company after the county narrowed its choices to the two entertainment giants last month. 


At a news conference in Mineola on Thursday, Aug. 15, Mangano noted revenue differences in the two proposals drove the final decision. 


Children’s Book Character Has A Wet Nose

What can we learn from a Bull Mastiff? Plenty, says a local author

The dog days of August are here. Perfect time for kids to read Piper Gets a New Home, a book for children ages seven to 12, penned by local author Mariah Leal.


A devastating head-on collision left Leal unable to work. But when life throws you a curveball, sometimes it’s a dog that catches that ball—and your heart—and you run with it. And that is exactly what happened to Leal and her dog, Piper. 


Community Rallies To Save Hospital

Written by Jill Nossa Wednesday, 21 August 2013 00:00

After learning of the downgrading of Glen Cove Hospital expected next year, the community has taken up its own fight against the proposed change. A rally was held last week in front of the hospital to send a message to the hospital’s administration that this city relies on the hospital and will not let it disappear without a fight, Mayor Suozzi has been leading the cause.


“We are here to try to get the hospital to postpone the decision until the full community has been informed,” Suozzi said to the crowd of about 200 people gathered around outside the hospital on St. Andrew’s Lane. “We are not here to demonize the hospital administrators; but to get them to come to the table to discuss the strategy. The news blindsided everyone...and I’m suspicious. I need your voices. If 300 people are behind me, that’s one thing. If 10,000 are behind me, that’s another.”

Glen Cove still behind state averages 

Last week, the New York State Education Department released the results of this year’s math and English language arts (ELA) assessments, revealing disappointing results as districts across the state reported lower than average scores. 

This year’s state assessments were the first for New York students to measure the Common Core Learning Standards for grades 3-8. Across the state, 31 percent of students met or exceeded the proficiency standards in both English and math. 


Residents Voice Concerns Over Mall Plan

Written by Gary Simeone Friday, 16 August 2013 00:00

On August 20, residents from all the communities in the Town of Oyster Bay will have a voice in the future of Syosset and Jericho. 


A town-wide voter referendum will decide whether a 54-acre plot of town-owned land right by the Long Island Expressway can be sold to a consortium of three developers—Simon Property Group, Castagna Properties and the Albanese Organization—which has indicated it plans a mixed-use facility, including apartments and shops. 


Another developer, Taubman Centers, currently owns a smaller, neighboring property and has been battling the town for 18 years to get a special permit to build a mall there.

Taubman has indicated it wants to bid on the town-owned site, which would allow it to expand its plans, and sued to force this referendum.   


Kick-Off Reception For John DiMascio

Thursday, 15 August 2013 00:00

On Tuesday, August 6, Friends of John DiMascio, candidate (R,C,I) for Nassau County Legislature, hosted an enthusiastic crowd of more than 100 supporters at the Swan Club. Attendees were of all political affiliations and from all across the 11th Legislative District, which includes the communities of Sands Point, Port Washington, Roslyn, Roslyn Harbor,

Greenvale, Glen Head, Glenwood Landing, Sea Cliff and Glen Cove. With flag lined walls, flag center pieces, and pleated flag fan draped entry tables, the patriotic themed event was most appropriate for John, a Vietnam veteran and a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), the American Legion, and the Vietnam Veterans of America. DiMascio, a highly respected and accomplished attorney and former court officer, is on the Board of Directors of the North Shore Sheltering Program, serves as a pro bono attorney for the

Nassau County Coalition Against Domestic Violence, and is annually recognized as a “Top Legal Eagle” by Long Island Pulse Magazine, among many additional distinguished awards. DiMascio has already received the endorsements of the Fraternal Order of Court Officers of New York State and the Court Officers Benevolent Association of Nassau County.
