Mayor Holzkamp Gives Tip on Special Election
At the Glen Cove City Council meeting of Sept. 28, during the public comments section, Mary Ann Holzkamp asked Tip Henderson, head of the Glen Cove Republican Party, if he had "heard anything from the governor?" "No," Mr Henderson said, then asked, "Have you?" "No," the mayor answered. The seemingly mundane back-and-forth was actually the opening lines to the next chapter in the saga of the Glen Cove Sixth Council seat. The seat has been vacant since the last election, when Republican candidate Grady Farnan and Democratic incumbent Joe Gioino tied in the race. The reference was to the fact that the fate of the seat has been on Governor Pataki's desk since District Attorney Elliot Spitzer determined that a special election, on a date selected by the governor, would decide the newest councilperson. Since neither the Glen Cove Democrats nor Republicans have heard from Albany, Mayor Holzkamp proclaimed, "Then we'll hold the special election on Election Day." "Great," said Mr. Henderson with a smile. He later added, "This is what I've been asking for all along." Mayor Holzkamp found Grady Farnan in the audience and called, "Good luck, Grady." Mr. Henderson then asked the mayor who Mr. Farnan's opponent would be. She answered that the meeting was not the appropriate time and place to say.

North Shore High School Varsity Sports
North Shore soccer's first league game was against Carey High School. The team came together after a nervous start; the score was 2 to 1 at the first half. Randi Zukas made a goal assisted by Allyson Gordon and Kaitlyn Silka scored a goal with an assist by Casey Leigh. During the second half, Randi Zukas scored another goal, again assisted by Allyson Gordon. Sadly, the team lost 5-3. However, kudos to the defense of Casey Leigh, Lauren Portnoy, Kerry Koczen, and Chiara Nakashian and to Christina DeSousa, who played well, but unfortunately did not score in this game and to Meghan Schenkel, who had 20 saves. On the whole, it was a great experience for a first game!
