Glen Cove Celebrates the Life of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
This year Martin Luther King Day was celebrated across the United States on Jan. 21. Here in Glen Cove, the march stepped off at 9 a.m. from the First Baptist Church on Continental Avenue. The street was temporarily re-named James Davis Way to honor the memory of one of Glen Cove's strongest civil right's activists, James Davis, who passed away Nov. 13, 2001. The weather was chilly and damp, but the spirit and voices in the air were enough to keep the marchers' hearts warmed. The march went through downtown Glen Cove to the Wunsch Auditorium at Finley Middle School, where there were hundreds more people gathered to sing, listen to speeches, and share just a bit of Dr. King's dream.

North Shore Men's Basketball: The Round-Up
Win some, lose some. Opportunities taken. Opportunities missed. Tuesday, Jan. 15, the Vikings evened their league record at 2-2 with a 72-61 point drubbing of Plainedge High. On Friday, Jan. 18, North Shore hosted heretofore unbeaten Jericho High. Jericho was reeling from the loss of their star guard Justin Zale, out for the season with a fractured wrist. They were ripe for the picking. Alas, the Vikings couldn't gather in the bough, falling on their face in front of the hometown fans, 70-53.
