Letter: In Memory of Michael Galluccio

Friday, 31 July 2009 00:00

On July 16, the City of Glen Cove lost one of its finest members, Michael Galluccio. To know Mike was to love Mike. He had a great personality and a wonderful sense of humor. There was a unique tone in his voice whenever he would say hello or joke around that never failed to put a smile on your face or make you laugh. He was always fun to be around, and how lucky we are to have known him and to have called him a friend. He was a “class act.” At the funeral mass, Father Michael Ralph described him perfectly with a few simple words: “Mike was a heck of a guy.” We love you Mike and you will be dearly missed by family and friends. Mike, in the words of Ralph Kramden, “You’re the Greatest!” Rest In Peace.

Terry and Jack Stroppel

Dear Charge d’Affaires Khoc:

Letter: A Letter Written to Mayor Suozzi From Residents of

Written by The Acerra, Anderson, Friday, 24 July 2009 00:00

For the past two years, during the first weekend in August, Coles Street would come alive as we celebrated what had become a Landing tradition, the annual Coles Street Block Party. A celebration that had quickly become a much-anticipated event by not just the residents of Coles Street, but our fellow Landing residents who would be invited to join in. Our block party was a true example of the melting pot our neighborhood is. People from many cultures and generations came out into the street to see neighbors old and new to share stories, food, pictures, music, and catch up on neighborhood news.

 

Letter: To Our Friends And Neighbors

Last month the Glen Cove SAGE Foundation, Inc. sent out an appeal letter to all Glen Cove residents and businesses requesting your tax-deductible donation so that we may continue to expand our assistance for enhanced programs and services for the Glen Cove Senior Center. This assistance is particularly important during these trying economic times.

Your dollars have helped us provide additional funding for a yearlong series of Life Long Learning programs; blood pressure screening and health and wellness classes; data collection required for government funding and adult day services for the frail elderly.

 

Letter: Setting The Record Straight

Friday, 17 July 2009 07:33

First Mike Dukakis and then John Kerry made the same mistake when running for president. They tried to take the high road and ignored their critics. As a result, the impression that was left was that their critics must be right, otherwise, they would have set the record straight. So, let me again set the record straight.

 

Letter: First Sea Cliff Golf Tournament Was A Great Success!

Friday, 10 July 2009 00:00

Banking on the fact that Sea Cliff and its surrounding neighbors would embrace the ridiculous idea of a three-hour round of golf through its parks, ball fields and even private properties (over 40, in fact), we put it together and it worked! Eighteen hundred dollars was raised for the Sea Cliff Library and another $300 for the Sea Cliff Fire Dept. Associated Press liked the idea enough that they did a national story on it!

Letter: Oh What a Day We Had!

Thursday, 02 July 2009 13:55
On Thursday, June 25th, the sun peeked through the clouds and shined upon Robert M. Finley Middle School where the PTA hosted its first annual Tournament Day. The day had been planned as a celebration of a year of hard work by students, teachers and parents alike. We were not disappointed! The lower field of the Finley Middle School was bustling with physical, yet fun activities for the children, while parents prepared a schoolwide barbecue lunch for all.
 

Letter: Senior Day Was Outstanding

Thursday, 02 July 2009 13:52

On May 9, Glen Cove celebrated Senior Day in its downtown area. The day was to honor all the wonderful senior citizens in our city, with this year’s special honoree being Joan Meehan. It was an outstanding day!

The mayor’s Senior Citizen Advisory Council wishes to thank Mayor Ralph Suozzi, Deputy Mayor Maureen Basdavanos, the entire city council, and those who served on the Senior Day Committee. Your efforts were greatly appreciated.  

On behalf of our seniors, we acknowledge, with gratitude, the on-going support of our city officials, as we constantly pursue ways to improve the lives of our senior population.

Leslie McCarthy, chair,
Senior Advisory Council

 

Letter: End of a Bad Era

Friday, 26 June 2009 07:55
The long Glen Cove school board meeting held this week was a relief when it finally ended. It was the last night for board members Doug Brown and Kurt Schmeller, and not a minute too soon. As a final insult to the people of Glen Cove, with only 10 days left in their terms, they exercised their legal right, and voted for things which will cost the taxpayers dearly and unnecessarily. Rather than do the honorable thing and postpone the vote, so that the two new board members, who take office next Wednesday, could make decisions for the entire coming year, they took it upon themselves to do just what they have steadfastly done for the past eight years, and voted for whatever the administration suggests. To quote Gilbert and Sullivan: “I always voted at my party’s call, and I never thought of thinking for myself at all.”
