History Stands Tall in Glen Cove Court
It was an historic day in Glen Cove City Court on Friday, Jan. 24, one that has given a new meaning to the expression "hanging judge." If you walk into the courtroom, you will now find hanging on the wall, to the left of the judge's bench, formal portraits of the nine judges who have served the city from 1918, the year Glen Cove became a city independent of the Township of Oyster Bay, along with a plaque in recognition of 14 justices who have served as acting, associate or appointed judges.

Big Red Sports
The unusually cold weather this season has caused great difficulty to all Section VIII participants. SUNY Farmingdale has been the place for meets for the last few years and this year due, to space availability, indoor track was moved outdoors. This makes it difficult for the meets to even take place because of the very cold temperatures.
North Shore High School Varsity Sports
The Lady Vikings placed second at the Conference VI championship at SUNY Farmingdale Friday night - the best finish by a girls' winter track team in North Shore High School history.

Brooke Cohen and Katie Jones finished second and third, respectively, in the high jump, achieving All Conference status. First-time racewalker Avery Karlowich placed second and also earned All Conference status. Freshmen Allyson Gordon and Kristen Pearsall qualified and placed in the finals of the 55m dash, which was a fine accomplishment for their first conference meet!
