Letter: Mazzella For School Board

Thursday, 15 May 2014 00:00

My name is Robert Mazzella and I am a candidate for the North Shore School District Board of Education. I hope to have the privilege of representing the entire North Shore School District community - parents, seniors, local businesses, teachers, and most importantly the CHILDREN!

 

After actively attending virtually all school board meetings and informational sessions over the last two years, I decided it was time to seek a position on the Board of Education. As a parent of two children at the Glenwood Landing Elementary School, husband of a Garden City

High School teacher, active member of the Glen Head-Glenwood Civic Council, and President of the Property Owners’ Association of North Shore Acres, I believe I am uniquely qualified to represent all members of the North Shore School District area.

 

Letter: Your Vote Counts

Thursday, 08 May 2014 00:00

Please GET Out and Vote YES on May 20 for the North Shore Budget Vote!

 

More than ever, it is important for everyone to get involved and have your voices heard. Our children are relying on us! 

 

Letter: LAXFEST A Success

Thursday, 08 May 2014 00:00

The Glen Cove Junior Lacrosse Club would like to thank everyone who contributed to a successful LAXFEST this past Saturday. We want to especially thank Mayor Reggie Spinello for attending the event and mixing it up with the young lacrosse stars of Glen Cove.

The day started off wet and ended in the same fashion, but not a second of lacrosse action was spared as six Glen Cove lacrosse teams took to the field without even thinking twice about not playing due to a little rain.  Many thanks go out to all the coaches for their continuous time and effort put in to teaching the game and sportsmanship to the kids. We’d also like to acknowledge the City of Glen Cove, the Glen Cove School District, the entire Field family and coach Tripp and AD Denise Kiernan for their help in organizing the event. 

 

Letter: Lara Gonzalez For North Shore Schools Trustee

Thursday, 08 May 2014 00:00

I am writing to introduce my candidacy for Trustee for the North Shore Schools Board of Education. My name is Lara Gonzalez and I am a 12-year resident of Sea Cliff. My husband, John, and I have three children – a 10th-grader, a fifth-grader and a kindergartener.

 

Next year we will have a child at each level – elementary, middle and high school. I have been a parent in this district for 11 years and intend to be here for at least the next 12 until our kindergartener graduates from North Shore High School in 2026. 

 

I am passionate about public education. For the past five years, I have served as a school supervisor. Prior to that transition to school leadership, I was a full-time teacher at the secondary level. Currently, I supervise social studies, career & technical education, and service learning in pre-kindergarten to 12th grade in Oyster Bay–East Norwich Schools. On a daily basis, I interact with students, teachers, parents, other supervisors, building principals, Central Administration, and community members. One of my strengths is bringing together different groups of people and coming to consensus on what is in the best interest of our students and the community. As trustee, I would bring those skills to our district. 

 

Letter: Lavine Vs. Kennedy

Thursday, 01 May 2014 00:00

There is a fine line between self-confidence and cockiness. That might become a significant factor in the election campaign for the 13th State Assembly District seat in November.

 

Sea Cliff Mayor Bruce Kennedy, a 49-year-old Republican, has announced his candidacy to challenge incumbent Charles Lavine of Glen Cove, a Democrat who has held the seat for 10 years. 

 

Letter: We All Lost A Good Guy

Thursday, 01 May 2014 00:00

First to Nick’s family, please accept our sincerest sympathy for your loss. We as a community lost one of the good guys! Great husband, father, friend and leader. 

 

Glen Cove suffers with Nick’s passing. He was a confidant to many in his lifetime, he solved peoples’ problems and always cared, no matter what the issue.

 

In a time of trouble he would console and seek a solution, then see it through for his client, and did it always with no motive other than to just help.

 

Letter: Commander: Candidate For School Board

Thursday, 01 May 2014 00:00

I’d like to take this opportunity to announce my candidacy for Trustee of the North Shore School Board of Education. I have lived in the district for eight years, having relocated from the from the south shore of Long Island. I have embraced the peacefulness, beauty and sense of community I have experienced since my move.  It is a truly special place.  

 

I am running for the Board of Education because I believe my experiences, both the professional and life skills that I have cultivated over my 65 years make me an excellent candidate to help solve the challenging issues that are before our community and school district.

 

Editorial: Life Follows Death Follows Life Follows Death

Thursday, 24 April 2014 00:00

Spring is a time of rebirth, so it’s no surprise we celebrate. These holidays, whether true “holy days” or secular commemorations, tend to be marked by feasting and gifting. Many of these springtime holidays have a dark side—or at the very least a dark undercurrent. Behind the bunny rabbits (chocolate and furry), fluffy yellow chicks and prettily colored eggs lies a cruel and unjust death. Passover, too, marks a rebirth for the Jewish people; this most deadly plague, which “passed over” Jewish homes, finally persuaded Pharaoh to free the Israelites to pursue their destiny. (Let’s be thankful that human sacrifice has gone out of style with both God and man.) Truth is, springtime celebrations mark not life but its cycle, which must of necessity include death. If we were immortal, we wouldn’t take the same joy in being (not to mention the planet would be really crowded). The same dying and decay that make us sad are what make life joyful and precious. 


 

Letter: No Room For Discrimination

Thursday, 24 April 2014 00:00

(Below is a copy of a letter sent to County Executive Edward Mangano on April 11)

 

I write to express grave concern over reports in today’s press that the United States Department of Justice instituted a lawsuit yesterday against the Town of Oyster Bay and Town Supervisor John Venditto for alleged housing discrimination against Black Americans.

 

This concern is all the more exacerbated by the fact that today’s press also contains extensive coverage of our national celebration of the 50th anniversary of the passage of the historic Civil Rights Act of 1964.

 

There is no room for any type of discrimination and prejudice in our communities and in our nation.  It is for this reason that I am urging that you direct our Nassau County Commission on Human Rights to commence an immediate investigation into these most troubling allegations.

 

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

 

— Charles D. Lavine Member of the Assembly

 

Getting Things Going In The 11th LD

Written by Legislator Delia deRiggi- Whitton Thursday, 24 April 2014 00:00

It is with great pleasure that I report multiple positive projects are underway throughout my district. Through the Community Revitalization Program, each Nassau County Legislator is able to apply for grants for projects that benefit 

an entire community. Currently we are wrapping up some and starting some throughout Port Washington, Roslyn, Sea Cliff and Glen Cove. 

 

In Glen Cove, I worked with the previous and current Glen Cove Fire Department chief on a partial grant for their “turnout gear” and now have put through for a grant that would help them attain a vehicle needed for training purposes. I believe if you are willing to risk your life for us, we should support your training so that risk is at a minimum and your ability to save people is maximized.  

 

The Downtown BID recently announced that they are beginning a new “streetscape” beautification. I am glad to have the county participating in this project.
