Sea Cliff Village on Board With Ferry
On Monday, October 16, the Sea Cliff Village Board met in the Sea Cliff Library with about 60 residents in attendance. Mayor Claudia Moyne opened the meeting, as always, with the Pledge of Allegiance, and asked for a moment of silence for the crew of the USS Cole. Mayor Moyne announced the appointment of Warren Griffin as village ombudsman. There is a detailed job description of the position available in Village Hall, but the mayor briefly explained that the position exists primarily to provide impartial assistance to any resident with an unresolved problem or issue that has reached an impasse. Trustee Phil Como added that the last line of the job description sums the position up. The Ombudsman is "viewed as a problem solver." The position is being vacated by trustee Como. Mr. Griffin can be reached through Village Hall.

The application will be made available by the school district as soon as it is duplicated. Copies will be at the Glen Cove Public Library and in Thayer House.
From the Glen Cove Jr. Football Gridiron
The Pony Red team beat the Amityville South team, 27-18 and improved their record to 6-0. Glen Cove took the lead in the first quarter when halfback Anthony Bellock scored on a 15-yard run and then quarterback Corey Land hit tight end Kurt Cornelis with a pass on the extra point try making it 7-0. Glen Cove's offense then made some costly mistakes and turned the ball over twice in a row and failed to capitalize on their offensive drives. Glen Cove's defense was led by cornerback Gabby Lebron, played tough and kept Amityville off the board in the first half.
