North Shore Teacher Charged With Assaulting Student Reinstated
School had been in session for just over two weeks last Sept. 16 when North Shore Middle School student Anthony Martignetti came home from football practice and told his mother that he had been hit in the head by Coach David Sanford, resulting in a bloody nose, according to the boy's mother, Jane Martignetti. The Nassau County district attorney's office subsequently charged Mr. Sanford with third-degree assault, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment, spokesman Rick Hinshaw said.
Mayor Proposes Unique Solution To Unique Circumstances
At the first meeting of the Glen Cove City Council since the official certification of the race for city council between Joe Gioino and Grady Farnan as a tie, Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp delayed the start of the regular council meeting to make a statement on the still empty seat. Saying she had thought long and hard about "a fair and equitable solution for the residents of Glen Cove and for the two good, Glen Cove-born and raised men who want to serve our city," she proposed that Mr. Gioino and Mr. Farnan each serve one year of the two-year term. Mayor Holzkamp said, "These are unusual circumstances, unprecedented in the City of Glen Cove. However, I feel my proposal is a fair one. I invite the Glen Cove Republican Party to join me in this proposal and let these two men split the council seat that they both fought so hard to achieve. This way we avoid the expense to the taxpayers of a possible additional election. Let's allow the city to move on with the business of governing."

The Glen Cove High School varsity air rifle team had another spectacular season this year. The team won its first seven matches before losing its last match to Valley Stream. The team members outscored their opponents by 220 points over the season. Despite their loss, the team went to the County Championships barely one week after and had to compete against Sewanhaka, Massapequa and Valley Stream. The outcome was quite different this time. The entire team shot outstandingly, outshooting their opponents to become Nassau County Champions for the second time in the past three years.
