Not hearing ‘don’t worry’ from state representatives causes concern for residents

A big question is currently on the minds of residents in the North Shore School District: will they be slapped with a $14 million tax bill as a result of the decommissioning of the LIPA plant in Glenwood Landing? As residents of the district are well aware, the power plant will be torn down next year—if not sooner—and the tax burden will fall upon the homeowners and business owners in the area. The questions remain: how soon will the taxes increase, and how hard, in reality, will taxpayers be hit?

City’s national designation as one of the top 100 communities for youth culminates in a party for the kids

After being selected, last fall, as one of the top 100 communities for young people, the City of Glen Cove held a celebration honoring those youth at the Finley Middle School cafeteria last week. The party drew a crowd of students, parents, siblings, teachers and members of local government and organizations.

The kids enjoyed themselves eating pizza and painting their faces prior to the award ceremony. The Glen Cove High School production studio created a video highlighting all that the city has to offer, which played right before the awards ceremony. Awards were presented to the children by Mayor Ralph V. Suozzi and Deputy Mayor Maureen Basdavanos, and citations were given to the city by Mayor Bruce Kennedy on behalf of the Village of Sea Cliff, by Delia DeRiggi-Whitton and by Assemblyman Charles Lavine, congratulating the city for achieving this status.

North Shore students and parents protest foreign language cuts

The North Shore School Board had to wrangle with budget constraints and the resulting cutbacks at its latest meeting even though a budget discussion was not on the agenda.

“The students here are not going to see the effects of these cuts,” said a North Shore student to the board. “We are here genuinely as concerned citizens of this school district. Languages, learning about other cultures, being able to communicate with other cultures, [and] developing our brains are an essential component to having a full, healthy, meaningful, and fun education.”
