Three Candidates in Glen Cove Mayoral Race
Mayor Holzkamp considers her greatest accomplishment in office to be the cleanup of 50 acres of polluted property in Captain's Cove. "This has been called the best cleanup of one of the worst contaminated sites on Long Island, perhaps in the nation," she said, adding, "I am extremely proud that this has been achieved through bi-partisan work, done with a Republican run state and federal administration, including being honored by the White House for the restoration and protection of our nation's coastal environment and receiving the Coastal America Partnership award for the revitalization of Glen Cove's waterfront. " Developers are ready to begin the development, she said, and putting this long vacant land on the tax rolls will result in an estimated $3 million to the City of Glen Cove, $8 million to the Glen Cove School District and $3.8 million to Nassau County. "This increase in the tax base will be tremendously beneficial to all the residents of the city; all progress benefits all citizens," the mayor stated.
Glen Cove High School Big Red Sports
The Big Red girls' varsity soccer team moved into second place with a win over Friends Academy last Thursday. The win was the second over Friends this season and moved GC that much closer to its second consecutive season of reaching the playoffs. Sophomore Amanda Rodriquez scored two goals and sophomore Ana Palacios added another with all the scoring coming from both teams in the first half. Halftime included a special announcement to recognize the seniors who have dedicated their time and hard work to the program. Seniors recognized were Rebecca Golloub, Kelly DeAngelis, Molly Silvestri, Raquel Gutierrez, Sara DeJesus and Sam Feigman. Coach Peter Falen stated, "We're losing a group of girls who have paved the way for the younger players in the soccer program. Many of these girls have sisters who played for the program in the past, so we're losing some last names that had eight years or more in Glen Cove." The girls concluded their regular season playing a tough team at Freeport on Monday. Good luck to the girls and especially to the seniors with a future that is very bright.
