School Board Votes 5-2 to Adopt Budget
On April 17, the Glen Cove Board of Education adopted the proposed 2000-2001 school budget. Board members Phil Enright and Bill Boeddener voted against the $47,789,674 spending plan which will be presented to voters on May 16, the same day voters will select their choice, from a field of six candidates, to fill two seats on the board of education. Unlike prior years, the school board has not announced a tax rate, which the board is not required to publish. According to board president Vito Abbondandolo, in those prior years, the board of education published an estimated tax rate as a courtesy to Glen Cove residents.

Vikings Lacrosse Record Falls (1-2)
Last week North Shore lacrosse played both Clarke and Wantagh. Unfortunately for the Vikings their last win was against Jericho one of the lower seeded teams in the division. The Vikings' loss against Clarke was a blow to their ego because Clarke was seeded 11th and the Vikings were seeded 7th. The Wantagh win over North Shore was expected. However, the point spread of 17-5 was not. With a record of 1-2 North Shore still believes they have a shot at the playoffs. It's just that now the Vikings have to make some upsets and beat teams against whom they are considered the underdogs.
