I met Sara Jones shortly after she moved to Sea Cliff. From the first, I was impressed with her intelligence and enthusiasm as she quickly became involved in a myriad of community events. Later, when she joined the Friends of the Sea Cliff Library as its treasurer, I saw evidence of her strong fiscal and managerial acumen. The North Shore community would be lucky indeed to have Sara as a school board member.
I am writing in support of Sara Jones’s candidacy for the North Shore School Board. I have known Sara for five years, ever since my daughter entered Sea Cliff School. For the past two years, as co-president of the Sea Cliff PCA, I have seen Sara in action and have been continually impressed by her energy, her level-headedness, and her commitment to the education of our children.
Homeowners, who first filed for New York State’s School Tax Relief program (STAR exemption) in 1998, are looking at some new regulations that will require them to register again in order to receive their 2014 exemption.
These new rules are tied to a New York State Comptroller’s report that indicates that abuse and fraudulent filings for the Basic STAR program, on the part of some people within New York State, have cost all of us as taxpayers millions of dollars to date and promised to cost millions more if nothing changed.
On Saturday, May 11, the City of Glen Cove will hold its 7th Annual Senior Recognition Day. All are invited to join seniors and their families for a wonderful celebration in downtown Village Square from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. (In case of rain, the event will be held at the Glen Cove Senior Center, located at 130 Glen Street.)
To All Nassau County residents, Nassau is one of the safest counties in the nation with overall crime at historic lows. We would like to keep it that way, but we need your help. Some crimes are difficult to prevent, but one crime you can help prevent is property theft, which happens largely from automobiles. Protect yourself by always locking your car, even in your driveway, and never leave your pocketbook, wallet, keys, and electronic devices visible from outside the car.
Remember, if you see suspicious activity, dial 911.

I read “Will Sewers Save the Beach?” by Jill Nossa in the April 12, issue of the Record Pilot with great interest. It makes fascinating reading about a mucky subject. Thank you!
Last spring I visited Mayor Suozzi’s office to discuss the contamination of Crescent Beach. I was impressed to see that his office was at the hub of a multi-agency effort to reduce the pollution and reopen the beach.
Since that time I have communicated with NY Assemblyman Charles Lavine, Glen Cove City Councilman Anthony Gallo, and Nassau County Legislator Delia DeRiggi. I learned that the problem is not an easy fix. There are seventy properties in the area around Crescent Beach that are not connected to Glen Cove’s sewer system. As Legislator DeRiggi explained to me, some of the larger and older properties have many old cesspools that have been inactive for years and some of the owners don’t even know where they are located. They may be leaching toxic waste and overflowing into LI Sound.
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!
