Mother Nature EndsY2K With a Snow Job
Much to the joy of every child in our North Shore community, the Year 2000 came to a close under a blanket of snow estimated at 14 inches deep. The snow starting falling early Saturday morning, Dec. 30, and continued through the day into the early evening at a rate of an inch an hour. On Dec. 29, Glen Cove Fire Department personnel assisted in delivering instructions regarding snow rules by going through the city's neighborhoods and announcing them by megaphone. A snow emergency was declared by Mayor Thomas Suozzi. The last time we had a storm of this caliber in our area was back in 1996....and more snow is being predicted for the end of this week.

Big Red Sports
The Glen Cove wrestling team got the season off to a great start. The JV team has hosted two multi team meets over the first weeks of the season. Solid teams from Locust Valley, Oyster Bay, Plainview, Syosset, Farmingdale, and Nassau County powerhouse MacArthur have brought almost 200 wrestlers to Glen Cove. All of the Glen Cove JV wrestlers have risen to the occasion. Wrestling tough for the Big Red have been Lee Smith, John Sebastiano and Mike Morrison. Several members of the team wrestled their way to their first win. These wrestlers are freshmen Dennis Seaman, Eli Gooden, Mike Kavanaugh and Max Schneider. Several of the Glen Cove JV wrestlers have dominated their opponents. Sophomore Brian Meyers and freshmen Erick Martinez, Roberto Perez and Drew Beisler have dominated the upper weights. These young wrestlers should provide Glen Cove with a solid varsity in the years to come.
