Just when it appeared that many of our youth were deciding that cigarette smoking was not a good idea, a new form of smoking has now become available - electronic cigarettes, which are now considered “cool” among teens.
SAFE, Inc. is committed to educating Glen Cove youth and their parents regarding this new form of smoking and will continue to partner with the Tobacco Action Coalition of LI to drive home the fact that using e-cigarettes may lead to smoking conventional cigarettes and it is not safe.
“E-cigarettes contain nicotine, which is highly addictive and a gateway to more traditional tobacco products,” said Carol Meschkow, Nassau Coordinator for Tobacco Action Coalition of LI. “Parents and educators do need to be concerned about the tobacco industry’s efforts to groom the next generation of smokers.”
The waterfront in Glen Cove is being put to use with a new chartered ferry service for private events.
Seastreak, a leader in revitalizing fast passenger ferry services in the New York metropolitan area, chartered a special corporate event and sightseeing cruises from the Glen Cove ferry dock at Garvies Point last week, with the inaugural event taking place on the bright and sunny morning of Sept. 12.
“Having a company like Seastreak offering a chartered service from Glen Cove’s waterfront is a testament to the decade long revitalization efforts that have taken place along beautiful Hempstead Harbor,” Glen Cove Mayor Ralph Suozzi said.
“By welcoming NY Waterways this summer and now Seastreak, we are able to show off our magnificent new maritime facilities to two of the region’s leading ferry companies.”
Glen Cove had a fourth successful “Gold Coast Concours/Bimmerstock” car show earlier this month. The annual fundraiser, held on Sunday, Sept. 8, is one of several local efforts that raise money for the Diabetes Research Institute Foundation ( DRIF).
Martino Auto Concepts/MAC Auto Couture again presented Bimmerstock. Nassau County Legislator and DRIF board member Delia DeRiggi-Whitton has helped make this event happen for four years in a row.
The car show and related fundraising materials helped bring in just under $80,000 for the DRIF. Over the last 4 years, this event has raised over $260,000 for the DRIF. And the total local efforts including golf outings, a dinner and the car
show have helped the Glen Cove area raise almost $780,000 for diabetes research.
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.

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.
