Letter: Obfuscation In Seniors’ County Taxes

Thursday, 30 January 2014 00:00

If you checked your most recent county real estate tax bill (for Jan-Dec 2014) to confirm that you were credited with your senior abatement on your county taxes,  you will find no information. In fact, there was no way  to verify credit for my senior abatement for 2014 except to ask the Glen Cove Assessor’s office for the amount, if any, that was credited for senior abatement on my current bill. 

 

Letter: No County Notice For 2015/2016

Thursday, 30 January 2014 00:00

Have you noticed that the Nassau County Department of Assessment has not issued our Notice of Tentative Assessed Value for 2015/2016, due Jan. 2, 2014 and that any appeals of our assessments must be filed before March 1, 2014??

 

Our notices for 2013/2014 were dated Jan. 2, 2012  and for 2014/2015 were dated Jan. 2, 2013.

 

Will our assessments for 2015/2016 continue to be “frozen” at their values of Jan. 3, 2011?

From Long Island Wins: January 23, 2014

Written by Maryann Sinclair Slutsky, editorial@antonnews.com Thursday, 23 January 2014 00:00

From Mud Floors To CEO  Of North Shore-LIJ

As executive director of Long Island Wins, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting immigrants from all backgrounds, each with a personal immigration story. One of our goals is to use those stories to highlight the contributions that immigrants make to our Long Island communities.

 

Recently, I had the opportunity to sit down with Michael Dowling, an Irish immigrant and the president and chief executive officer of the North Shore-LIJ Health System, the largest system in New York State and one of the largest in the country.

  

North Shore-LIJ has a service area that includes over seven million residents in downstate New York, and it’s the largest employer of immigrants on Long Island, from entry-level workers all the way up to the highest reaches of leadership.

 

Letter: SAGE Foundation Seeks Support

Thursday, 16 January 2014 00:00

Every Glen Cove household recently received a SAGE (Senior Activities Generational Endowment) Foundation newsletter and annual appeal. Please look at it again and consider the enormous good you can do to by supporting our Senior Center members. The center provides Glen Cove and surrounding neighboring community seniors with friendship, entertainment, activities and programs that help sustain good physical, mental and emotional health.  The Life Long Learning programs are vital for our aging population. Also provided is a nutritious lunch program.  

 

Winter is often a difficult time for all of us to be out and active. The center is a wonderful resource for so many who may otherwise be home and alone during these cold days.

Celebrate this wonderful New Year by helping our senior neighbors. It will enrich their lives and yours. 

Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Tax Cuts, Jobs, Education Need Focus

Thursday, 16 January 2014 00:00

Assemblyman Michael Montesano (R,I,C-Glen Head) submitted the following statement after Gov. Cuomo’s State of the State Address:

 

“Our state’s agenda this year is simple, but bold: getting Albany out of the way so we can move the middle-class forward. By ending the cycle of high taxes, bureaucratic and political nonsense and mismanagement of our education system, we can create the more affordable, vibrant communities our families expect and deserve.  

 

Letter: New Officials Must Maintain Glen Cove

Thursday, 09 January 2014 00:00

On the first day of a new college course my brother always told the students, “Today you have a grade of 100 (A).  What you do with it is up to you.”  The newly elected Glen Cove City officials started their term of office on Jan. 1.  They start with a grade of 100.  What will they do with it remains to be seen.  

 

Over the past eight years the City of Glen Cove has progressed forward and upward. At this point in time it has reached a level of involvement with the community and support to the residents and businesses that has not been seen in the past. Mayor Suozzi and the city council, the city departments and commissions and all of those involved have raised the bar to a very high level and have shown that level of close support to, and strong management of, Glen Cove can be maintained.

 

Letter: Common Core Doesn’t Add Up

Thursday, 02 January 2014 00:00

Interesting. However John Owens left out an important point [in his column “Mastering Math Shouldn’t Be Optional”], and one that I made at a recent school board meeting.

 

I asked if this Common Core curriculum was going to improve the ability of our children to make change at the check-out counter or anywhere else. The answer was “No.” 

 

Letter: A Parent’s Take On The Common Core

Thursday, 02 January 2014 00:00

First, I’d like to thank the paper for keeping the community informed on Common Core. It is definitely something most parents are talking about, some fearful, a few taking a tone of defiance. In the end, my wife and I take the position that it is better to have a universal standard in this country than have different standards originating “from the community.” 

 

Hope For The New Year

Written by NY State Assembly District 13 CHARLES LAVINE Tuesday, 24 December 2013 11:18

As we look to the year ahead with promise and hope, it is difficult to assess where we are now and where we are headed without first grasping the importance and relevance of the last three months of 2012.

 

Perhaps 2013 will be remembered as the year in which the Long Island community came together to repair the structural, physical and emotional damage incurred in October, November and December of 2012: when neighbor to neighbor we worked to rebuild our island, to find a way to improve electric service and infrastructure; to give our veterans a plan for the future, return our residents to good jobs, provide our neighbors food for their tables, and to protect our children and loved ones from mentally

ill people with guns.
