It was indeed stunning to read Planned Parenthood’s (Ms. Smith’s) defense of the indefensible, in a plea for continued funding of that organization. Notable also is the “extremist” label given to those who do not believe this organization is the benevolent “helper” of the millions of women they “serve.” The only thing extreme is the body count of the millions of babies who will never see the light of day; aborted due to PP’s “counseling” to those who wrongfully thought they had no other place to go and who, in their panic were glad to accept whatever would make things “right” for them. When a human face cannot be put on something (i.e. fetus instead of baby), the act becomes easy. How many minds were changed when sonograms were seen? How much mental human suffering has occurred for women who took their advice and when the panic and fear subsided, lived to regret their action?
Last month’s vote by the House of Representatives to strip Planned Parenthood of all federal funding reflects the pursuit of an extreme political agenda by the Republican House leadership.
It is also an outrageous assault on the millions of Americans who rely on Planned Parenthood for primary and preventive health care, including lifesaving breast and cervical cancer screenings, annual exams, birth control, HIV testing, and STI testing and treatment.
Anyone interested in the true state of Glen Cove’s finances would be wise to read the city’s Deficit Reduction Plan (“the Plan”) and the state comptroller’s response thereto, versus Mayor Suozzi’s interpretation, or even Newsday’s coverage, thereof.
The unfortunate fact is that, as revealed by the plan and the review to which it responds, if you include the almost $13 million the city has borrowed to reduce the deficit, it has continued to grow.
In the Feb. 3, 2011 issue of the Record Pilot you published the obituary of Margery Finley. What was missing from the obituary was the fact that Margery was the widow of Robert Marshall Finley, whose name is on the Glen Cove Middle School.
As Saturday night eased into the earliest part of Sunday morning, something truly wonderful began to unfold. Marine Sergeant Sal Cavallaro III returned to his home in Glen Cove from being in Afghanistan for 9 months to the thankful relief of his family and friends.
We are greatly dismayed at the attack that our police chief and other members of the Glen Cove Police Department were subjected to in the recent Letter to the Editor entitled “Privileged Council.” Police Chief William Whitton and the members of the Glen Cove Police Department are public servants whose sworn duty is to protect the security and property of Glen Cove residents at great risk to themselves. They are an integral part of, and essential to, our community as first responders and in providing a safe environment in which our children can grow and thrive. They are the driving force behind the excellence of the Police Department’s programs to educate schoolchildren against drug use and their participation in Glen Cove’s National Night Out Against Crime. They are doing great work for our community and they should be applauded.
As Assemblyman Lavine stated on Feb. 3 [at a press conference], there are “extraordinarily well-financed special interests, whose narrow agendas are far too often adverse to the well-being of the people of our state...” He could be referring to a New York State pension fund scandal. Last December, then New York State Attorney General Cuomo fined lobbyist Patricia Lynch $500,000 for her role in coordinating “pay-to-play” investments—i.e., political contributions to the former New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi’s campaign got investments from the multi-billion dollar state pension fund.
Senator Carl L. Marcellino announced that he will be holding a Public Hearing on the Consolidation of New York State Agencies on March 7 at 11 a.m. in Albany, to examine the impact of proposed agency consolidations on the affected agencies, delivery of services, the State workforce and citizens.
On Friday, Feb. 4, the Glen Cove High School Class of 2011 held its annual Senior Fashion Show. With the help of many, it was an extremely successful benefit that will help increase the funding for end of the year activities for our seniors. With over 200 people in attendance at the high school auditorium and 52 seniors modeling in the show, this event would not be possible without the tremendous efforts of our many volunteers and vendors.
As co‑chairs for the fashion show, we would like to especially thank all of the parents who volunteered to help with the show in addition to our wonderful fashion show Steering Committee: Diane Bruschini, Teresa DiPaola, Shirley Melillo and the Senior Class advisor, Jason Bieder.
Sometimes I forget how nice people can be. Here is an example.
My wife and I go to Pryible Beach every day, and so, even with the unplowed entranceway over the weekend, I thought I would give it a try. As my wife had tacitly suggested, I got stuck.
AAA would not help because we were on an unpaved road, so push and dig was all we could do. Within minutes three people from Bayville were working alongside us. It was a tough job and our front wheel-drive Honda was sinking deeper and deeper as the wheels raced.
