Food Fight Lands in Court Arena
The Glen Cove Planning Board recently approved the development of a new, upscale supermarket that will be located at the site of the former Pergament spanning up to, but not including, the site of the now empty Stop and Shop along the commercial zone of Forest Avenue. On Dec. 18, this newspaper learned that the City of Glen Cove and the developer of the new supermarket, Cove Associates, are being sued by Four T2 Associates, (who own the now vacant property where the old Stop and Shop was located), and by the Stop and Shop Supermarket Company which is now operating out of the former Farmers Bazaar. The plaintiffs filed an Article 78 proceeding with the Nassau County Supreme Court in Mineola. An Article 78 proceeding seeks to have local government decisions overturned.

Joanna Moccia Signs National Letter of Intent
Opportunity came knocking for Glen Cove High School senior Joanna Moccia during the softball early signing period. One evening last month, Joanna chose to accept a softball scholarship to play for nationally ranked Division II C.W. Post College. After narrowing down her choices and spending two days on a NCAA official visit, Joanna decided that what Post had to offer her both academically and athletically was the right choice for her. Joann currently has a 92 GPA and has been a varsity starter since the eighth grade. She is a two-time All County selection with her senior softball year still ahead. Dedicating her summers to seven years of travel, softball has certainly paid off for her.
Glen Cove Peanuts are 2001 L.I. Champs
The Glen Cove Peanuts team of the city's junior football league finished their season with a perfect 10-0 season and a three-foot tall trophy allowing them to reign supreme as the Long Island 2001 champions. These five and six-year-olds can really play football! The boys played an eight game schedule in their division and defeated all of their opponents. With no playoffs in the Peanut League, the team went on to challenge the best teams in Suffolk County and defeated them also. The team's motto all season was "The Cardinals Rule the Roost" and that's what they did-along with a positive attitude, respect, dedication and sportsmanship.
