Letter: For the Waterfront Project

Written by Mark Polowichak Friday, 28 August 2009 00:00

For the Waterfront Project

As a local resident of the City of Glen Cove, and a taxpayer, I wish to inform the city officials of my support for the RXR Glen Isle waterfront revitalization. I think it will be a boon to the city’s tax coffers as well as providing much needed jobs to the city.

It has been way too long for there not to have been something done with that prime piece of real estate. There could be such a renaissance to this fine city. Right now there is not much for people to come and spend their time and money here in Glen Cove. The city is located too far north of the L.I.E, and there is only one (although very nice) hotel in the area. People need a reason to venture here. Although, there are things that locals can enjoy and learn from within the city limits. There are the beaches, the Glen Cove Golf Course, Garvies Point Museum, N.C. Holocaust Memorial, nature preserves, the stores downtown, music festivals at Morgan Park and downtown, some magnificent places of worship, and the fabulous restaurants. But, there still needs to be something more to draw the distant visitors. I believe that if we get this waterfront project done along with the ferry from NYC (hopefully other destinations, too) done we would see a much needed increase in revenue for the city. Maybe some relief for some of the highest tax paying people in the country.

It is also a great time for the city to be planning for this project in anticipation for the market return in the (hopefully) near future. I hope to see a shovel in the ground soon.

Letter: Thank You GCPD

We wanted to express our appreciation to the Glen Cove Police Department, specifically Detective Vetrone and Detective Fitzpatrick, for their outstanding work in solving a recent burglary at North Shore Day Camp resulting in arrests and recovery of stolen property. Both Detective Vetrone and Detective Fitzpatrick responded to the situation in a quick, meticulous and professional manner. In addition, credit must also be given to all the members of the department for their collaborative efforts in achieving their goals. We know that teamwork like this comes from the leadership of an organization and credit should be given to Chief Whitton.   

Thank you again to Detective Vetrone, Detective Fitzpatrick and the Glen Cove Police Department for your dedication to your job and for your service to the people of the City of Glen Cove.

Executive Director, North Shore Day Camp

Letter: ‘Collusion’ He Says!

Friday, 21 August 2009 10:19
The Glen Cove school board meeting of Aug. 17 was, in part, a discussion about boilers. It seems that our engineering and architectural firm, BJLJ, who was unfortunately rehired for this year, has, I believe, made many mistakes and been untruthful in the past. Among other things, they said that a new boiler for the administration building, Thayer House, should cost $70,000, and we budgeted for that amount.  However, it was revealed that estimates received for this project were far in excess of even the $70,000, which itself is an outrageous amount, considering it is for a boiler not much larger than would be used for a modest sized house, which after all, is what Thayer House is. As anyone who has installed a boiler of this size in their home knows, such projects cost generally between $10,000 and $15,000. There may be other factors which would elevate the price, but not nearly to that degree.
 

Green Ways to Keep Mosquitoes Away

Friday, 14 August 2009 00:00

The abundance of summer rain is bringing an abundance of mosquitoes. However, there are ways to control these disease-carrying pests. Here are some tips from Hicks Nurseries, located in Westbury, on how to repel mosquitoes by using these organic methods.

First, prevent mosquitoes from breeding.

Get rid of sources of standing water such as tins cans, plastic containers and old tires. Change bird bath water at least twice a week. If you have a pond, stock it with fish that eat mosquitoes and keep the edges clear of vegetation and debris.

 

Letter: BOE Should Define ‘Support’

Friday, 14 August 2009 00:00
I just read in this paper a letter by the Glen Cove Board of Education in which they say that “Dr. Aronstein has the complete support and respect of this board of education.” I think that they should define “support” and clarify whether or not they agree at any or all times with his decisions and policies. Many people in this community, including myself, believe that this cannot be true because they disagree at their public meetings. It is not possible for all members of any body who are doing their job representing the public, to agree unanimously all the time, since the very people they represent don’t always agree all the time. That is why there are an odd number of people on the school board, so that there is always a majority, often by only one. I think unanimous votes tend to be suspicious.
 

Letter: Thanks From the Glen Cove Hall of Fame Committee

Written by Luigi Gall,President Friday, 07 August 2009 00:00

On Monday, July 27 the 21st Annual John Maccarone Hall of Fame Golf Tournament was held at the Glen Cove Golf Course. All the money raised from this tournament goes to the John Maccarone Scholarship Fund and to date, approximately $45,000 has been awarded to outstanding academic-athletic students. This year, as a result of the 2008 golf tournament revenues, we awarded $4,500 in scholarships to six graduating seniors at Glen Cove High School.

 

Letter: No to Waterfront

Written by Barbara Hall Friday, 07 August 2009 00:00

I am at a loss to understand the impetus behind the massive waterfront project when, in the legal notices posted in the newspaper, Glen Cove has provided the public with countless reasons why this plan should not go forward, such as:

“Modify existing visual character of the water and altered views.”

 

Letter: Board of Ed Supports Dr. Aronstein

Friday, 31 July 2009 00:00

We are writing to make it clear to the Glen Cove community that Superintendent of Schools Dr. Laurence Aronstein has the complete support and respect of this board of education. Dr. Aronstein continues to do an outstanding job for our district, as demonstrated by our fourth straight year of increased Assessment scores and Regents scores, while during the same four-year period, he has ensured that Glen Cove has had one of the very lowest school tax increases on Long Island. He certainly cares about the health and well-being of our children, all while searching for ways for us to cut costs. We encourage the Glen Cove community to work in a positive, professional and productive manner with Dr. Aronstein, his staff, and the board of education, to continue the revitalization of our school district.

The Board of Education of the City of Glen Cove

 

 

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
