The Friday before Memorial Day weekend, the Glen Cove Teachers’ Association held a “Dress Red, White and Blue Day” fundraiser to help keep history alive in Glen Cove.
Funds raised were donated toward the renovation of the 1907 Justice Court House built by the Town of Oyster Bay and gifted as the first City Hall that will house our new North Shore Historical Museum.
The Association donated $1,000 to sponsor a window being built.
After 50 years, the second graduating class of North Shore High School of 1960 met recently for a heartfelt, wonderful time. Over 80 classmates out of 204 attended along with their spouses.
It all started at the Hideaway in the Marina on Shore Road in Glen Cove with over 100 in attendance for drinks and finger food. Laughing, crying, hugging and sharing with many of the classmates we have not seen in 50 years – you can imagine. Many we couldn’t recognize. Names tags were a big help.
Last week at the Glen Cove Senior Center, Nassau County Legislator Diane Yatauro (D-Glen Cove) participated in a press conference held by NY State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo to announce the results of an investigation by his office. The investigation was focused on predatory health care lending which targets senior citizens and susceptible patients. Some of these lenders claimed a particular credit card had “no interest” when it actually carried retroactive interest of over 25 percent if not paid in full during a promotional period. The scam severely affected many Nassau County senior citizens who were also unknowingly charged up front for services they never received.
The Glen Cove School District Board of Education met Monday night at Robert M. Finley Middle School to discuss policies, personnel matters and other business. Trustees Frank Bouza and Grady Farnan were absent from this meeting.

The board approved the first reading of a policy regarding Medicaid false claims, fraud prevention and detection. Several personnel actions were taken, including the hiring of a new administrator, which created some discussion among the board members.
On Saturday, July 31, under a “Big Top” tent amid fair weather and blue skies, several hundred library district residents celebrated the fifth anniversary of the opening of the Gold Coast Public Library.

Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano is proposing to consolidate administrative functions of the 6th and the 2nd Police Precincts and move the 6th Precinct headquarters to the 2nd Precinct location in Woodbury. The county executive says that the plan would save over $20 million and would not diminish police service. However, many local public officials are firm in their view that residents would suffer. Additionally, there is still the question as to whether or not Mr. Mangano can order this consolidation without approval of the Nassau County Legislature.
On July 26, a special session of the Nassau County Legislature was held to vote on the one dollar per hour salary raise promised to home health care workers employed by agencies that have contracts with the county, as per Nassau’s Living Wage Law.
