Temporary Restraining Order by Stop and Shop is Stop and Go
Questions and contention continue regarding the building of a new upscale supermarket in the location of the former Pergament on Forest Avenue spanning up to, but not including, the site of the now empty Stop and Shop. Last week, a temporary restraining order (TRO) was served on the developer of the new supermarket, Cove Associates, by attorneys for the current Stop and Shop which is now operating out of the former Farmers Bazaar location. At press time, however, this newspaper learned that the plaintiffs in the case, represented by William Bonesso of Forchelli et al law firm, lost their bid for a restraining order, and that on Tuesday morning, the Nassau County Supreme Court lifted the TRO against Cove Associates and dismissed the application for a preliminary injunction. In December, the Glen Cove Planning Board had granted approval for development of the project. On the heels of this approval, Four T2 Associates (who own the property where the now empty Stop and Shop is located) and the Stop and Shop Company filed an Article 78 proceeding with the Nassau County Supreme Court in Mineola. An Article 78 seeks to have local government decisions overturned. The Article 78 decision is still pending.
Glen Cove Welcomes YMCA Corporate Offices
The YMCA of Long Island, Inc. has relocated its corporate offices to stand on the beautiful grounds of the Glen Cove YMCA on Dosoris Lane. The ribbon cutting was held on Friday, Jan.11. Guest of honor State Senator Carl Marcellino attended the ceremony, and was warmly greeted and thanked by the Hon. Judge Richard McCord, chairman of the Board of Managers of the Y, for the great efforts he has made in support of the YMCA. It is largely due to five years of work and a $100,000 grant obtained by Sen. Marcellino that expansive and extensive improvements were made to the Glen Cove YMCA, attracting the corporate division to the city. Senator Marcellino, a former school teacher, is well known as a true friend to the YMCA. He commented that he is always ready to lend his time and energy to so great a cause.
North Shore Men's Basketball: The Round-Up
"Oh what a week it was, it's over let it go." The theme song from a long ago TV show sums up the Vikings week all too well. The Vikings sailed their ships into the enemy harbor that is Garden City High School on Wednesday, Jan. 9. The Trojans had not one, but two big horses, awaiting their invasion by the name of Gallucci at center and Walters at point guard. North Shore was content in the first quarter to hoist up 8 three point bombs. Unfortunately their aim was errant, hitting only one such shot.
