Glen Cove Celebrates the Dream of Dr. King
On Monday, Jan. 19, residents of Glen Cove came out as they have now for 20 years to commemorate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The cold winter day began with a large group of hardy souls gathering to make the traditional march from the First Baptist Church on Continental Place to the Wunsch Arts Center at the Finley Middle School where a program of music, prose, poetry and dance took place; Rev. Roger C. Williams, pastor of the First Baptist Church was guest speaker, inspirational and uplifting as he always is...with a reminder of what more we always can do.
Hearing for Glen Cove Teacher Rescheduled for March 16
A public hearing scheduled at Glen Cove City Court and then relocated at the last minute to Thayer House resulted in a tremendous amount of confusion for the more than 50 residents who attempted to attend. It was planned to be an open hearing called by Saverino (Savy) Gallo, a Glen Cove High School teacher and coach of more than 22 years who has been brought up on charges by the Board of Education for what Superintendent Dr. Mary Ellen Freeley called a "concern that a positive learning environment did not exist in his classroom." According to Jonathan Lovett, attorney for Mr. Gallo, the charges stem from "a student who wanted to get out of Mr. Gallo's class. She would cut class, read newspapers in class...she didn't want to be there. When the student asked for a change of class, she was told the school did not remove students from classes without good reason. They encouraged her to find a good reason," Mr. Lovett said. "The good reason the student found included being made to feel uncomfortable in Mr. Gallo's class by reason of her gender," he added, categorizing the situation a "witch hunt."
Glen Cove High School Big Red Sports
For the past 10 years winter track has competed in Farmingdale College and the Armory in New York City. Last year was a difficult year for the team, as well as the coaches, because Farmingdale College was closed to Section VIII and Glen Cove High School teams. Unlike last year, this year the track team has already surpassed last year in the total number of meets entered and the season is not even close to being over. For example, so far this year the team has had five invitationals.
