Echoes of applause and cheers were heard at Glen Cove’s City Hall on May 9 as the City Council voted to hire three new police officers. Officers Erasmo Troia, Andres Sicam and Jahrae O’Neill were sworn in by Mayor Pamela Panzenbeck as their friends, family and fellow community members beamed with pride.
The month of May this year marks 75 years since the death of one of Glen Cove’s most beloved residents. The entire world was engulfed in a total war during World War II. The nation was rationing goods, millions of men were in uniform, and women took their places in the factories to produce the weapons and materiel that led to final victory.

From afar, the May 6 baseball game at John Maccarone Memorial City Stadium between the Long Island Bombers and the Sunset Mets looked like any other game played there. The bases were loaded, friends and family filled the stands, and athletes were patiently waiting for their turn to get their hands and bats on the ball. But the players in this baseball game were all visually impaired.
Dark and gloomy days filled with misting rain and wind didn’t hold back Eva Casale and Team Eva — Every Veteran Appreciated — from their commitment to honoring local servicemen killed in action. With their feet pounding the slippery streets of Long Island, Team Eva took on the astonishing challenge of running a marathon a day to raise money for, and awareness of, the nation’s veterans. Team EVA started their journey seven years ago and have since ran a total of 1,288 miles.
