  • News: Glen Cove School Budget Passes Handily

    The turnout for the Glen Cove School Board budget and trustee election was quite low for a city with an estimated 12,000 registered voters. A mere 1,672 votes were cast, 1,109 for the budget and 563 against, translating to a 65.5 percent approval rate. When asked for a comment, a very weary but smiling Superintendent of Schools Dr. Larry Aronstein said, "This is a wonderful vote of support for the school district and the direction in which we are moving. A budget passing by more than a 2-1 margin is very gratifying. I look forward to continuing to work with Richard [Tortorici] and I look forward to developing a good working relationship with Ida [McQuair]. We should all be proud that four wonderful people took the risk of running in order to support our students and make Glen Cove Schools an even better place than it currently is." FULL STORY

  • Sports: North Shore High School Viking Sports

    The North Shore High School track team qualified to have multiple relay teams run in the annual Penn Relay Meet. The meet has been run at the University of Pennsylvania since 1895 and attracts the best track athletes in the nation. The boys qualified for a 4X100m relay, a 4X400m relay consisting of Darell Handler, David Freiman, Alex Grapstein, Andrew Lazarow and Jake Tobol, and a 4X800m relay. Only 35 of the best small schools throughout the U.S were chosen to run at this meet and only two from Nassau County made the cut. The relay ran in the pouring rain just minutes before the meet was placed on a rain delay. Nevertheless Darell Handler, Jake Tobol, Willie Schefer and David Freiman ran a terrific relay. Later in the day, the 4X100 ran with Andrew Lazarow in the third leg and Alex Grapstein as the anchor. The following day, the 4X400m relay won their section at Franklin Field, running against boys from all 50 states, and Canada, Great Britain and Jamaica. FULL STORY

  • Sports: Come Play Ball on Donny's Court!

    Not even a snooping reporter caught wind of the fact that the grand opening of the Glen Cove Boys & Girls Club's latest addition, ostensibly called the Lincoln House Outdoor Recreational Facility, was actually a dedication to Allan D. Seaman, known by all as Donny, until the announcement by Executive Director Lou Sanford heralded the unveiling of a sign reading "Donny's Court...Dedicated to Allan D. Seaman" on the grounds of the club on Saturday, May 12. The graphic of a player in the air and a shot of a ball hitting nothing but net could have been a portrait of the man who has spent the greater part of his life as an active participant in the Boys & Girls Club, as well as on the basketball court.
