Cynthia Ann Hole.... She works with special needs kids..and has done so with love..giving all of herself to them for decades.. she is my hero

@Devorah Where does she work from?
Megan McGuire Sujeski December 20, 2012 at 06:14 PM
Jeanine Dimenna - Page One, Jeanine continuously does whatever she can to help anyone in need out! The most recent example was hurricane sandy - she gives 110% of her heart in everything she does - she kept the restaurant open with limited power, just so people could come in for a hot meal.... she is seriously an angel in disguise.

I don't see my suggestion.....I wonder why
Jason Molinet December 20, 2012 at 07:46 PM
@Zefy Love the idea, but too vague. Go out on a limb and give us a name. There are great people doing real good. Nominate someone. Thanks!

I would like to nominate Councilman Tony Jiminez. He has been a role model in the community and has worked with children volunteering his time with the mentoring program at the Glen Cove Youth Bureau. He was chosen to be my son's mentor when he was the victim of bullying at school. Tony has has not come up short in providing positive experiences for him. My son adores him and looks up to him. He has selflessly dedicated his time to enhance this community and promote it with the positive contributions, He is also a an EMS volunteer. I would also like to nominate Charmaine Clark of the Glen Cove Youth Bureau who dedicates so much of her time and efforts to provide a safe and welcoming environment for the children of Glen Cove through the Youth Bureau. So much of her work goes undeserved and I don't believe she even wants the recognition she is natural when interacting with children .

Thanks Cyntra.

To The Editor: No disrespect intended, but these types of surveys/polls are pretty meaningless. Sure, everyone who has been mentioned is worthy of recognition; they're all good people. But I can give you the names of many, many others who are equally deserving, but, perhaps, not as well known in the community. And that's pretty much the point I'm trying to make. Invariably, these things boil down to simple popularity contests, not unlike those you see take place every single day among groups of kids. So what's the point of it? I'd say that Zefy C's response is not only the most accurate, but also the most logical and realistic. Heck, one year Time magazine put a little piece of foil on its "Man of the Year" cover to reflect the reader's image and declared the honoree to be .... "You" (the reader). And you know what? They probably came closer to the truth than they ever had before ... or after!
