I’m writing to inform readers of a simple and effective step we can take to protect our seniors from identity theft — removing Social Security numbers from Medicare cards.
One in five Americans above the age of 65 fall victim to financial fraud. In New York alone, approximately half a million seniors have been prey for scammers.
On June 2, the Glen Cove SAGE Foundation, Inc. (Senior Activity Generational Endowment) held its annual Golf Classic at the Glen Cove Golf Course followed by dinner at The Metropolitan. We were blessed with a beautiful day and all agreed that it was an amazing event. Thanks to our co-chairs, Linda Thompson and Pat Parmelee, the SAGE Board of Directors, Carol Waldman, the Golf Committee, all of our volunteers, our local shop and restaurant owners, and the Glen Cove Golf Course staff, the event was flawless.
Clean Water Initiative and Shoreline Trail for Port and Roslyn As the “waterfront district” legislator, I am very pleased to announce that I have been pushing for clean water projects to benefit Port Washington and Roslyn, and they have recently been approved at the Nassau County Legislature.
Through a Nassau County Environmental Bond Act, Nassau is supporting some really great improvements through the Town of North Hempstead aimed at stopping pollution and revitalizing our Hempstead Harbor and Manhasset Bay shoreline.
Wonders never cease in Sea Cliff. And that is but one of the great reasons to live here. The latest feel-good story about our one-square-mile village is about as short and sweet as most of those before. But, of course, just as fulfilling.
This one took place when Sea Cliff’s Library Board held it’s monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 13. As promised, chairman Frank Murray added a last minute item to the agenda in order to address the concern of a 40-year resident who took a tried and true Sea Cliff shortcut to reach him: a note left on the desk of his wife, Barbara Murray, the deputy court clerk in the village hall, who made a hand delivery.
Memorial Day just past. It was a wonderful holiday weekend getting together with family and friends to honor those men and women who have given their lives for our country as well as for all of us.
And it got me thinking, why can’t my own fellow neighbors, men and women living in the City of Glen Cove, why can’t we give our time and come together in support?
We would like to thank our community, friends, and family for all your generous contributions, encouragement, and support for Sara to forge ahead. Words cannot express our appreciation and gratitude to Tanni Iannelli, Rosa Pangari, and their moms for all their time and effort that went into the soccer ball fundraising event Kick Starting SARA’s Recovery.
I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to the members of the community who supported my campaign for Trustee for the North Shore Schools Board of Education. I am so humbled by this experience. As a public school teacher and school leader, I have advocated for almost twenty years on behalf of children and families in other districts. Effective July 1, 2014, as Trustee, I will have the distinct privilege of advocating for all children in our school district. I hope to represent you and yours well.

This past month, I read a letter to the editor authored by Councilman Anthony Gallo, Jr., and I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out what it’s about and why he wrote it.
It seems that Councilman Gallo thinks Glen Cove’s government hasn’t quite made it into the 21st Century because the bills that it pays are not published on the city’s website for taxpayers to review. He says we have an antiquated system down at City Hall.
This is an open letter to the administration and the board of education of the Glen Cove School District.
Rumors abound that the school district’s music and performing arts program is being hit hard by budget cuts even with the budget being passed last month. Please find a way to cut costs in the budget without cutting teachers or services within the music/performing arts program. It makes no sense to undercut the very best system. How did the orchestra develop into their present stage of talent? How, for heaven’s sake, did Select Chorale earn NYSSMA’s highest honor, Gold with Distinction, and get invited to perform for five hours at the White House? And the band program… first place and gold medals (for as long as my two sons have been in the district’s schools), New York City parades and so on…. Just beautiful music all across our school district, and talented singers, musicians and actors to perform.
We all remember springtime in high school and how it wasn’t always the rising temperatures that made us sweat. Finals time is stressful for students from all grades, but especially for those high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors.
Just the thought of the math Regents exam sends algebraic chills up our spines, culminating in a Pythagorean Theorem-sized anxiety attack. We remember those long nights of last-week cramming, with a steady diet of Mountain Dew and leftover Easter candy keeping our minds lubricated in wide-eyed hyper-sensitivity.
