The situation in the Glen Cove School District is disturbing for everyone.
When the dust clears however, there might be some fallout that is unforeseen at this moment.
From my limited perspective, the press, the DA, and the public are presently failing to immediately recognize and/or consider what could very well be a problem not yet fully identified and one that is universal and systemic throughout public education circles in New York.
Yes, they were hoping that if trees fell throughout Nassau County and no one was there to hear it, they could say it must not have happened.
Well, people were there. We heard it. We saw it. And now the administration of County Edward Mangano, the office of Comptroller George Maragos and the Presiding Officer of the Nassau County Legislature are starting to hear from brave residents, environmentalists and good-government groups.
My name is Giancarlo Pagliara and I am a resident of Glen Cove and freshman at John Jay College of Criminal Justice. While researching a school project I learned about a disturbing issue, casinos.
The North Shore High School PTO just hosted A Taste of Spring, its second annual fundraiser at the Sea Cliff Yacht Club on Saturday, March 9. It was a night of food, wine, and beer tasting from local restaurants and vendors. The evening was filled with good friends toasting, tasting and talking the night away. North Shore High School’s very own DJ, Dr. Gerver, provided great sounds!
I wish to thank the residents of Sea Cliff for their vote of support in my campaign for Village Trustee. Although this was an uncontested election your vote of confidence translates into a message of community interest and a mutual concern for our village.
I look forward to hearing your voice and working together with Mayor Bruce Kennedy and the Board of Trustees for the betterment of Sea Cliff.

Nice work by John Owens on the “...Buttafuocoed” article (Anton Weekly, March 22). His take on what is needed to revitalize Long Island makes a great deal of sense. The problem, as I see it, is that we lack political leadership that has any sense of vision for this area. The politicians are too vested in partisan politics and patronage. They lack the intelligence, experience and commitment to develop any bold, creative solutions to Long Island’s challenges.
As a long time resident of the community I thought I would summarize for consideration what I gleaned from the people attending the meeting at the North Shore Middle School on Wednesday evening, March 13, on the subject of the Sunoco property located on the corner of Glen Head Road and Glen Cove Avenue in Glen Head.
Initially, the residents affected by the withdrawal of Sunoco from the property, aided by the hard work of the civic associations, rejected purchase of this property by 7-Eleven and ultimately petitioned and won support of the town of Oyster Bay to purchase the property to build a small (minus a half-acre) park.
My name is Ashleigh Sheerin, co-president of the North Shore Middle School, and I am writing on behalf of Nicholas Pedone, a 7-year-old second-grader at Glen Head Elementary.
Many of you know that Nicholas was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in late October of last year. Neuroblastoma is a cancer that can develop in the abdomen, chest, neck and spine and effects children ages 5 and under. There is very little known about why this happens and Neuroblastoma accounts for 8-10 percent of all childhood cancers. There is no known cure for this terrible disease.
