An Open Letter From the Mayor
When I heard that Stop & Shop had taken over Edward's a year ago, I was delighted because I know that competition is good for Glen Cove. I thought a company the size of Stop & Shop coming to our city meant quality foods at competitive prices for our residents. Then I learned that Stop & Shop had bought out the independently owned supermarket, Farmers Bazaar, and planned to vacate the former Edward's store a block away. I concluded that what Stop & Shop wanted could be beneficial for Glen Cove. It seems something has gone awry and challenged my assumptions as to why Stop & Shop came to Glen Cove in the first place. I refer to the unnecessary litigation initiated by Stop & Shop from the time a developer announced plans for another supermarket to operate on Forest Avenue.
Glen Cove (and Andre) Welcomes Seaman Penafiel Home
"You have no idea how good it feels to be home in my own country." So stated Navy Seaman Guido Penafiel last Thursday night, with an ear-to-ear grin on his tanned face. Guido had just arrived in his hometown of Glen Cove after being stationed in Afghanistan for the past six months, sent overseas just days after the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11. Guido, a graduate of GCHS Class of 1999, was part of the crew of the USS Leyte Gulf, which escorted and protected the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt ("the mother ship") on its journey to Afghanistan. .

Season Begins for Big Red Girls Varsity Lacrosse
The new Glen Cove girls varsity lacrosse team has played two games so far this season, and while both scores would show the team had lost, the girls have the hearts of winners, and can go nowhere but up in the standings. The first game was played on March 19 against Mineola and the final score was 14-2. Glen Cove played with determination and energy. Laura Tripp scored the two goals of the game and, in her first, ever game in goal, Alexis Balincongan had eight saves.
