Council of PTAs' Dinner Dance Honors Vincent A. Suozzi
The Glen Cove Council of PTAs held its annual Scholarship Dinner Dance at the Swan Club on March 10. This year's honoree was the Hon. Vincent A. (Jimmy) Suozzi. Mr. Suozzi served a total of 11 years as mayor of Glen Cove and is currently the city controller. He is very active in the church of St. Rocco's and is an outspoken advocate of keeping Coles School as a public asset. He has been married for more than 50 years to his wife Terry, who was described as "the great woman behind the great man." All seven of their children attended Glen Cove schools. His son Ralph was spokesperson for the family, and he delighted the crowd with stories of the growing up years-both his and his father's. He told of how Mr. Suozzi once won a Boy Scout oratorical award for reciting Lincoln's Gettysburg Address...in under two minutes.
In Memory of Terry Petikas
With profound sorrow, Glen Cove struggles with the loss last week of a dynamic community activist, Terry Petikas. Terry--wife, mother, sister, Godparent and the essence of the word, friend. She transformed a personal breast cancer diagnosis into a very public, unwavering and compassionate movement to educate and assist all whose lives have been affected by the illness. Part of the movement was the founding and nurturing of Glen Cove CARES, (Cancer Awareness Resource Education Source). Her efforts were often rewarded with plaques and other forms of public recognition, but the only thing Terry wanted was for cancer awareness and positive health choices to be at the forefront of everyone's daily routine.

North Shore Men's Baseball: The Inside Pitch
It's axiomatic that if a team is going to have an undefeated season it has to win its first game. The North Shore Vikings varsity squad kept the dream alive with a 9-3 shellacking of visiting Mineola High School in a non-leaguer this past Monday, March 25. The early going wasn't promising as Mineola touched starter Ross Tesoriero for two runs in the first inning. But after the first frame, Tesoriero shook off the winter rust, allowing only one more run over the next six innings, striking out eight batters.
