Letter: Yatauro Criticizes Mangano Budget

Friday, 17 December 2010 00:00

When he was elected last year, Nassau County Executive Mangano promised no tax increases. The Nassau County Legislature Presiding Officer Peter Schmitt pledged no tax increases and no fee increases. It took each of them less than 10 months to renege on their commitments.

In the 2011 county budget, which I and my Democratic colleagues opposed, the Republican leadership enacted many tax and fee increases which include Parks and Recreation fee hikes totaling $2.3 million. Sewer and Storm Water charges will add an additional $20 million tax burden. New Traffic and Parking Violation fees will total $7 million. New Ambulance fees will total $8 million. New administrative fees at the County Clerk office will total $8 million.

 

Letter: Steve Gonzalez on Coach Letter

Friday, 10 December 2010 00:00

As I had expected, my written concerns about the Glen Cove School District’s varsity football program under the direction of Pete Kopecky has created a firestorm in Glen Cove. I have read the letters criticizing me for my comments and have heard from a number of Glen Covers as well. But notwithstanding Mr. Checola’s recent comments, no one except a former varsity sports coach, has offered any solutions to the dilemma of turning the football program around.

I offered one solution already: Coach Kopecky’s retirement. I now offer a second solution to Glen Cove’s varsity football problem that was suggested to me after my previously published letter.

Letter: Impact of Darkness on Seniors

Friday, 03 December 2010 00:00

With Daylight Savings time upon us once again, we have experienced the early onset of darkness these past few weeks – a sure sign that winter is on our doorstep. While many may enjoy this aspect of the season – cozy log fires, hot chocolate and early nights – this annual event can have an extremely significant impact on others, particularly the senior residents of our communities.

Letter: In Response to Coach Kopecky Letter

Friday, 03 December 2010 00:00

I submit this in response to the letter Steve Gonzalaz wrote several weeks ago in regards to Coach Pete Kopecky. I am currently the defensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Jericho High School. I have just completed my 20th year as a paid high school football coach. I began my coaching career at Glen Cove High School in 1990. I was a rookie coach without a clue until 1992. It was then that Pete Kopecky began his tenure as the head varsity football coach at Glen Cove. Mr. Kopecky brought an instant element of accountability, responsibility and honor back to Glen Cove football. Coach Kopecky not only taught our boys how to play football but he taught me how to coach. He probably will not agree with me because he is a humble man, but he showed me by his professional and dedicated example how to run a program we all can be proud of.

Letter: In Defense of Coach Kopecky

Friday, 19 November 2010 00:00

The letter to the editor from Steve Gonzalez last week regarding Coach Kopecky is an insult to the entire Glen Cove community.

Rival coaches respect Coach Kopecky because they know that his teams are well prepared and inspired to give their ultimate effort. Perhaps if Steve Gonzalez was a coach standing on the opposite sideline from Coach K, he might get a true reality check.

 

Letter: Read Gonzalez’s Kopecky Letter With Rage

Friday, 19 November 2010 00:00

I read with rage the letter asking Pete Kopecky to give up coaching. I then realized that this had to be some sort of a joke… or not.

Coach Kopecky is one of the finest men employed by the school district. He, along with his staff, develop the whole person.

Mr. Gonzalez: winning is not everything. Sportsmanship, confidence and commitment are also very important.
