Knights in Shining Armor

Friday, 04 December 2009 00:00

The James Norton Council Knights of Columbus embarked on a mission that started 14 years ago. This mission was to help members of the community who are less fortunate. The K of C had prepared 75 baskets of food for distribution to many different families and groups who support families. Two senior citizens who we have visited for almost 14 years, had passed away this past summer and there is a void now knowing that they are not there. Although they are gone, the hugs, thank yous and sometimes tears will never be forgotten.

 

Suozzi and Mangano Announce Transition Plans

Written by Matthew A. Piacentini Wednesday, 02 December 2009 19:24
Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi and Executive-elect Edward P. Mangano met this week in front of press and county department heads to announce that they are jointly planning a process for a smooth transition, with Suozzi explaining that he has met with his successor on budget and personnel details and is working to supply Mangano with the information he needs to execute his new plan for Nassau County.

 

Mangano assured the audience that as far as job cuts and budget changes, his process would be calculated. “There is no mass process. Everything will be surgical, and will be measured and thoughtful as we approach this transition,” he said.

Though pressed for information on job cuts, this was the extent of Mangano’s announcement, along with the simple statement: “We’ve talked about the budget and the organization of the county and went over an outline of how we are going to proceed on personnel issues.”

The executive-elect was equally tacit on tax cuts. He has campaigned heavily on the promise to revoke an energy tax, which Suozzi warned in response would leave a multi-million dollar hole in the county budget. When asked if the two had discussed the energy tax in their transition meeting, Mangano did not comment. Suozzi, however, taking one more chance to inject some laughter, joked, “We’ve been talking about the tax for six months.”

 

Pink Tulips Planted to Remind Residents of Early Detection

Flowers Will Bloom In Memory of Loved Ones Lost

This month, the Glen Cove Beautification Commission joined with Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S. in planting thousands of pink tulip bulbs throughout the city. Councilman Tony Jimenez and the Beautification Commission met with dozens of volunteers from both organizations as well as students from the High School DECA group who turned out to lend a hand in providing a visible reminder that early detection is the best defense against cancer.

This health and awareness project, Gardens of Hope, was conceived by the late Terry Petikas, founder of Glen Cove C.A.R.E.S., who enlisted the support of the Beautification Commission several years ago. Since then, Gardens of Hope has become an annual community event. The bulbs are planted each fall so that when the pink tulips bloom in the spring, the community is reminded of the friends and family members lost to this incurable disease.

Director of Athletics Don Lang proudly announced that three North Shore High School senior athletes recently signed National Letters of Intent (NLI).

Once signed, the institution agrees to provide that student with financial aid (if eligible under the NCAA rules) for one academic year in exchange for that student’s agreement to attend the institution for one academic year. Additionally, all colleges and universities that participate in the NLI program agree to not recruit these student athletes once he or she signs the NLI.
