Glen Cove Mayor Gets a Pay Raise
The recurring debate on whether to increase the Mayor's Salary line item in the city's budget came to a conclusion during the Oct. 10 Glen Cove City Council meeting. Whenever the topic has come up, (and depending which party has the majority), both sides of this city's political aisle maintain that the issue should not be political. During last Tuesday's public hearing regarding accelerating the mayor's salary increase to January 2001 from January 2002 as agreed upon last year, it was hard to remember that the issue was raising the salary for all future mayors of Glen Cove, not just the current mayor who has intentions of running for county executive next year.

Glen Cove High School Big Red Sports
The Glen Cove Varsity Football team triumphed over Westbury on Saturday, "Homecoming Day," by a score of 26-6! The game, however, was a lot closer than the score would indicate - the Big Red broke it open in the closing minutes of the game. Most of the game was a knock 'em down, hard-fought match. Westbury drew first blood scoring on a 55-yard opening play. The Covers came right back driving 65 yards, topped by a 26-yard Zhivargo Simmons touchdown run. Russell Keogler kicked the extra point to put the Big Red in the lead for good.
