Not So Humble Opinion: October 4, 2012

Written by Karen Gellender Friday, 05 October 2012 00:00

Time To Have A Baby?

Now that I’m an honest woman, as they say, people have started to ask about whether or not my husband and I are planning to have a baby soon. I don’t know the answer to that myself. Sure, I want a baby—babies are so adorable that I turn to mush every time I see anything that looks even remotely like a baby. I coo whenever they show a baby during a commercial, even though I know they’re just trying to sell me overpriced soap.

However, am I ready? First, there are financial concerns. I feel like I should wait until I have money safely invested in a house before I take on the responsibility of caring for another person. At the very least, I don’t think I could safely carry a baby up and down the steps to our two-floor walk-up, so if I had a baby in my current apartment, I would never be able to go outside.

 

Letter: Thanks For Music Festival Support

Friday, 28 September 2012 08:57

On behalf of the executive committee and advisory council of Morgan Park Summer Music Festival, I wish to thank all our financial supporters who have enabled us to present free professional concerts under the stars in beautiful Morgan Park for 53 years. This concert series, held every Sunday and selected Saturdays during July and August, was the most well-received in our long history.

We thank the City of Glen Cove for keeping Morgan Park so beautiful in spite of the storms that attacked it. The natural amphitheater, which is the seating area in front of our classic stage, overlooks Hempstead Harbor and Long Island Sound. We thank the volunteers of the Glen Cove Auxiliary Police and EMS for providing a secure and safe environment at our concerts.

Assault On Human Services

September 5, 2012 marked two months since $7.3 million, earmarked to support human services, was shifted to the general fund. We were told that this was due to the Nassau County legislature’s failure to pass $41 million in bonding for property tax refunds. But, it is not that simple.

How did all of this get started? In 2009, then County Executive Tom Suozzi “enlisted” the county’s most vulnerable citizens as unpaid lobbyists to advocate for red-light cameras, cigarette taxes and traffic-violation reform. Mr. Suozzi threatened scores of agencies serving tens of thousands of youths and families that they would be closed down or crippled unless the revenue enhancers were passed through Albany.

 

Letter: A Suggestion For Glen Head

Friday, 14 September 2012 00:00

Fifteen years ago we were part of a group of Sea Cliff residents (The Friends of Elm “Spooky” Park) who raised funds - which the village matched – to create the maze in Spooky Park. Our lives have been richer for it. To put it simply, if you need something to put a smile on your face, come see this maze. If you’re a mouse-potato just Google “Spooky Park Maze” and click “images,” but the photograph doesn’t do justice to how mature and enchanting it has become.

Imagine for a second the Sunoco property with a grand maze like the one in Spooky Park—there is definitely more than enough room. Also imagine a sturdy wrought-iron fence salvaged from some old, Gold Coast mansion that would grace the Glen Cove Ave. and Glenwood Rd. exposures, preventing children from running into the street.

Annual E-Waste Recycling and S.T.O.P. Program

I encourage everyone to join us on Saturday, September 15, when Glen Cove will hold its annual E-Waste (Electronic Waste Recycling) Program from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Winters Brothers facility located at the end of Morris Avenue. This program addresses the growing nationwide problem of e-waste, such as computers, cell phones, pagers and VCRs. These items not only have a low level of biodegradability, but they contain materials that are highly toxic when released into the environment. This program offers the residents of Glen Cove an opportunity to dispose of these items in an environmentally responsible way.  

I am also pleased to announce that on Saturday, September 29, Glen Cove will hold its annual S.T.O.P. (Stop Throwing Out Pollutants) Program at the Winters Brothers facility on Morris Avenue from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. I am proud that participation in this recycling program has increased each year as the city has become more aggressive in advertising and the environmental consciousness of our community continues to gain momentum. I encourage all residents to bring the items listed on the flyer you received at home for proper disposal.

 

Letter: From Dream To Disaster

Friday, 07 September 2012 00:00

First time homebuyers spend weeks, months, maybe even years searching for their dream home. And when they find it, it is a feeling of extreme happiness and pride. When we started the search for our first home together, Glen Cove wasn’t even on our radar. Then about two years ago, our search lead us here. We were immediately charmed by the tranquil waterfront sanctuary Glen Cove provided for a couple looking to escape the hustle and bustle of congested central Nassau and overdeveloped Queens. Soon we came upon a house for sale on the quiet cul-de-sac of Rooney Court, and we knew at that moment that we had found our dream home.

His excellence has been repeatedly recognized by the Nassau County and New York State judicial systems.

 

Letter: Dead And Living In Glen Cove

Friday, 31 August 2012 00:00

It’s just weeks from the final days of summer and Labor Day will be upon us before we know it. For most, it will signal the end of summer. The family of hawks living in my backyard all summer have gone.  Along with their departure so have my dreams.

What were those dreams? That I, with my neighbors, would be able to wrestle the developer to the ground along with the City of Glen Cove Zoning Board, Planning Board and Council Members and convince them that Rooney Court is worth saving. That my neighbors and I, who have been paying taxes, do matter. And that as a united body, reason would fill the minds of these men and women, the developer and city council members. That surely profit in one’s pockets would not be the defining factor.
