Letter: Thank You From the Wilson Family

Friday, 05 August 2011 00:00

On behalf of our family, I would like to extend sincere thanks to the Glen Cove Police, EMS, and NSUH-LIJ hospital staff for all their efforts on the morning of Tom’s passing, and to Jack Sheridan and his staff at McLaughlin Kramer Funeral Home for their guidance and support.

We would also like to thank all of our friends for the food, cards, phone calls and words of encouragement during this difficult time.  Also, thank you to Janine at Page One and to Tony Gallego and Bob Canavan for their help.  Many thanks to The Rev. Betsy Simpson, the choir, staff and parishioners at the First Presbyterian Church for conducting such a beautiful service in Tom’s honor.  

 

Letter: From Past Board of Education Trustee Frank Bouza

Friday, 29 July 2011 00:00
I would like to take a moment to express my thanks and gratitude to all of the community members who have stood by me for the past six years. I was proud to be a trustee for the Glen Cove Board of Education. During these years, we have accomplished a great deal. Fiscally, our physical plants are starting to look better than ever, we have managed to keep school tax increases to a minimum, and I feel that we have strong leadership in our district.
 

Letter: Proud of Mayor Suozzi

Friday, 29 July 2011 00:00
“The most important political office is that of the private citizen.”

Mayor Suozzi has put our city in the right direction since the first day he took office. He continues to do so everyday of his life with complete dedication to the City of Glen Cove, its people and neighbors. He has continuously improved every aspect of the quality of life that we all expected as citizens. As our city grows it will go through many changes and needs that have to be met. Growth is inevitable in every city across our country and necessary. With Mayor Suozzi’s guidance and supervision through these hard economic times our city will continue to prosper.

 

Letter: Village Sqaure Piazza

Friday, 22 July 2011 00:00
I was one of the many Glen Cove residents who attended the Planning Board meeting about the Village Square Piazza. I cannot believe that business owners in Glen Cove are in favor of this huge renovation and as a resident I was totally disappointed with the presentation. Much has been said about the buildings along Brewster Street that isolate downtown. With the proposed design, there is no access to the businesses on School Street while traveling along the Glen Cove/Brewster Street corridor, particularly for someone who may be unfamiliar with Glen Cove. I feel that opening Glen Street to Brewster is essential to the vitality of the downtown business area.
 

Letter: LWV Objects to Hub Referendum Vote Date

Friday, 22 July 2011 00:00

(This letter was sent to County Executive Edward Mangano and the County Legislature.)

The League of Women Voters of Nassau County strongly objects to the August 1 scheduling of a Nassau County referendum on the proposal to permit the county to borrow up to an additional $400 million for a proposed “Nassau County Hub Area Development” construction project, which would include a new Nassau Coliseum and minor league ballpark. Our reasons include the following:

The cost of doing this as a special election, projected to be approximately $2 million, is not necessary and would come at a time when Nassau County is already experiencing serious financial difficulties. Though the cost would be picked up if the vote is “Yes,” if it is “No,” the voters would have to bear this unnecessary burden. This risk can easily be avoided by scheduling the vote on the same day and on the same ballots as those for the general election in the fall. Most bond issue votes have been done that way in the past.

 

Letter: From David Nieri

Friday, 15 July 2011 00:00

There was a full house in the City Council chamber for the Public Hearing before the Planning Board on the Village Square Piazza plan [on June 21].  It was good to see the community interest in this project even though many of the citizens present were just hearing about it for the first time.

Most of the buildings to be redeveloped in Village Square are owned by Mr. Puntillo, who is making application before the Planning Board to redevelop the current run-down property into mixed-use residential and commercial units in 4- and 5-story buildings. His team presented magnificent images from their 3D visual model depicting the project from all sides.

 

Letter: Needs or Wants?

Friday, 15 July 2011 00:00
This is a time when it is difficult for people to not be worried about the economy. We all seem to be watching the unemployment numbers, struggling to pay for home heating oil, gas for our vehicles, and keeping up with our rising school and property taxes. It is a time when many of us are fearful about how much higher the basic cost of living will rise and maybe even how much longer we will be able to live in our homes.

Montesano Passes Legislation to Honor Vets

Friday, 08 July 2011 00:00
Assemblyman Michael A. Montesano (R,C,I-Glen Head) successfully passed Assembly bill 5165, which designates the Northern State Parkway as the “Purple Heart Way” to honor local military veterans who have served so valiantly for their country.
