Changes in School District Draw Crowd to Meeting
Mayor Mary Ann Holzkamp smiled at the crowded city hall chambers and remarked, "I know you're not all here for the regular meeting." But before she could address questions and comments from the public, the regular meeting had to be run. Along with some routine resolutions, the city council passed a number of noteworthy items.
Glen Cove High School Big Red Sports
The Big Red spring track team, made up of mostly juniors and seniors, has a great start to the season with a record of 4-2-1. The focus this year is for each player to invest more time and effort in trying to improve himself individually as well as working together as a team. The team has many invitationals and section VIII meets that they are looking forward to attending to better their skills. If the start of the season is any indication, this should be a very successful year.
North Shore High School Viking Sports
