Now that the politicians in Albany have completed their usual election year hustle and haveRead Morefinalize d a state budget, this will be the state aid situation for for the GCSD for 2014 - 15: $8.6 million. That's about $720,000 more than last year (2013 - 14) and approximately $300,000 more than the original expectation for the '14-'15 academic year.

Sometimes we shop at Stop & Shop, but mostly at Waldbaums. The garbage in the S&S parkingRead Morelo t is disgusting. They leave bags filled with food on the median where the trees are, the bottle recycle enclosure often smells of urine. My wife once spoke to the manager who got very defensive and got defensive and made my wife feel like she was the problem. Then there's the garbage along Walnut Rd. opposite the parking lot. Kids walking from the HS and others think it's OK to use the gutter and sidewalk there as a dumping ground. This reflects poorly on the population of Glen Cove, no doubt about it. The slobs ruin it for everyone.

Walbaums is located in Glen Head.......

Read yesterday's Newsday? The City Council WILL BORROW $900K to cover costs for CSEA earlyRead Moreretiremen t and the death of a police officer. The city does not have enough money to cover this? Wow!!!

Does one of our children have to be killed before they do something about the speeding on ElmRead MoreAvenue ? It is like a speedway all hours of the day & night. Something needs to be done before a catastrophy happens. The people speeding have no regard for anyone or anything on that road. Speed traps, something PLEASE!!!!!!!

maybe we should have kept Corzine??? LOL
Mike Elks February 24, 2014 at 09:01 AM
There you go again, TJ. What is it with you liberal, progressive, lefties, (take your pick), youRead Morecan 't answer questions with facts? Just throw crap at the barn side and hope something sticks. Come on baby, give it your best shot. I'm really interested in what you've got to say. I'm waiting.
Gabe Cocchiola February 24, 2014 at 09:06 AM
Corzine should be put away. (yet we don't hear a thing about him) Why?? You're right, Mike!
Mike Elks February 18, 2014 at 01:03 PM
Yes, I read about it. The question is have the Council members been informed about the number ofRead Morebuy outs. Should be easy enough to find out. Give them a call. If they don't, this could mean that the mayor badly miscalculated and we're on the hook for more than projected and he doesn't want it to go public. I hope that's not the situation. It reflects badly on him and it will put a burden on us.

My husband and I are Senior Citizens. We have lived in Glen Cove 40 years. We live at the bottomRead Moreo f a sloping road. Every major snowstorm the plows do their job, but bring the snow from higher up the slope..down to the bottom and leave a huge mountain in front of my home. The mail man cannot get to the mailbox and we cannot continue to re clean this plowed snow from the bottom of our driveway and from the mailbox area. Something has to be done about this. When they get to the bottom of the road, cant the accumulated snow on the plow be shifted away from the driveway apron and the mailbox??? Or cant he continue to push the snow to the end of our property and make a pile there (the most logical solution).

I just wish they would come and plow this morning so I can go to work. I have to go up a hill toRead Moreget out and if they don't plow I am trapped in my house.

Plow lolololol they ride with the plow up

It was a difficult storm to handle, no doubt about it. But there were roads that, it seemed, wereRead Moref orgotten until multiple calls and IMs were made directly to those in authority. People are human and make mistakes; we should all understand that. Hopefully, lessons were learned during this past storm and corrections will be made for the next one.
Leslie Schwartz February 12, 2014 at 06:23 AM
It would be nice to see some storm preparedness. I honestly dont know, but do we have to wait forRead Morei t to snow to salt the roads? Sunday night there were no plows, no where.
