Glen Cove's Eagle Is Healthy and Free
The young eagle who found his way to Glen Cove last month has finished his recuperation and was released on Sunday by Bobby Horvath, the wildlife rehabilitator who picked up the six-month old bird when his activity around town caused worry on the part of the DEC. Rather than it being an indication of trust and domesticity when the bird would hang around humans, accepting food like chicken and fish, the concern was that Jake, as he has now been officially christened, was not well enough to even feed himself, and as such, was willing to eat what we humans were offering.

North Shore High School Varsity Sports
The Vikings played two league games this past week against Clarke and Roosevelt High Schools. In the game against Clarke, the Vikings needed a win to stay in contention for a spot in the playoffs. The Vikings played the conference leading the Rams even through midway in the first half, until a Viking's breakdown on a Clarke corner kick gave the Rams a 1-0 lead. The Vikings played an excellent first half, only to see the Rams score off a free kick with less than a minute left for a 2-0 half time lead. The team was handed its fourth loss of the season and its bid for the playoffs must wait till next season.
