Annually, athletes from the Association for Children with Down Syndrome and Freeport community members join forces canoeing throughout the canals of Freeport. Adults from ACDS (based in Plainview) and Freeport families, employees, residents, business owners, friends and even Scouts meet weekly during the summer to paddle together and practice techniques, water safety and social skills. Every two-person canoe carries an athlete and Freeporter to maneuver around the water, docks, boats, and even swans! More than 50 participants join the festivities! At the culmination of the season, races are held at the Milburn Boat Basin! A course is layed out with balloons and the event was official with a green flag and a huge checkered flag! The dock is always crowded with parents, families, friends and many more cheering on the participants! Enthusiasm is enormous –

win, second or last – it does not matter! This year medals were awarded to the winner of each heat and certificates were given to all participants. A total of seven races competed for the gold! Gold medalists include Caroline Colucco, Danny Carraccio, Michael Levey, Danny Makar, Annie McHale, Katie McGuire, and Brian Schiralli. Congratulations! The Rescue Squad viewed the activities for safety and even an ice cream truck with free treats came to add to the celebration. The event was a huge success and everyone is looking forward to the competition in 2013! A special thanks to all those involved during the practices and the “Main Event.” There had to be many sore muscles! To see the expressions on the faces of the athletes is worth a million! – Marianne Endo

by Linda Delmonico Prussen Freeport’s mayor, Andrew Hardwick, apologized repeatedly for the incident regarding visiting El Salvadoran vice-president, Salvador Sanchez Cerén, on August 8. He said at the Monday night meeting, “To anyone that I offended I sincerely apologize. I meant no malice to anyone.” He added, regarding his military service, “I’d still be willing to lay my life down for this country.” Mr. Cerén has been vice-president of El Salvador since 2009. According to multiple reports Mr. Cerén participat-

ed in anti-U.S. demonstrations in San Salvador only days after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The mayor pleaded ignorance regarding Mr. Cerén’s background, and indicated he was not alone by showing magnified photos of several local Republican politicians who also met with Mr. Cerén; among them were Nassau County Executive Edward Mangano, Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray, and Hempstead Town Councilwoman Angie Cullin. Mr. Hardwick said he was certain they too, were unaware of Mr. Cerén’s history. (continued on page 3)

Lack of communication blamed Deputy Mayor Jorge Martinez, further demonstrating the estrangement between the Board of Trustees and the mayor’s office, said he was quite aware of the El Salvadoran’s past and expressed outrage over being kept in the dark regarding the visit. “You have two Hispanics on the board. We would have told you about this individual, only you did not tell the Board of Trustees.” He added, “I do not need a Marxist, Leninist Communist honored by this village.” The room was patently divided between those livid over the vice-president’s visit, with one attendee after the next expressing their infuriation over the failure to vet this politician prior to his arrival, and those in support of the mayor, willing to accept his apology and campaigning for a forensic audit. The latter were clad in matching white T-shirts asking in bright red, “Where’s the money?” On the front and, “Freeport residents want to know” on the back. While anger prevailed over calm for

most of the public statements, with one attendee escorted out by police and many others critical of the mayor demanding his immediate resignation, regular meeting attendee and former mayoral candidate Anthony Miller spoke early on, “The only way to say it is we have a problem here. The word that comes to mind is ineptitude.” He added, “The scars of 9/11 are still healing.” He blamed the incident on a lack of research and communication on the part of the mayor. He said, “I think an apology is owed to all those who have served and lost loved ones in 9/11.” [Mr. Miller was appointed a school board member on Tuesday. See page 2.] Attendee Eddie Bracken, who lost his sister in the September 11, 2001 attacks spoke emotionally. Citing accusations of Mr. Cerén’s alleged political crimes, he said, “You honored a man who murdered innocent people.” He called politicians from both sides of the political arena to task for causing what was to many a heart-breaking reopening of painful wounds.

An embattled mayor replied, “I beg your forgiveness for my lack of knowledge in this. Next time we will do a better job of vetting.” He added, “Close to a week ago I gave an apology to Newsday and to this point it hasn’t been printed.” He asked, “Do we believe [Councilwoman] Angie Cullin would meet with someone she knew this about?

Nautical Mile While the meeting did for the most part revolve around criticism of the mayor hosting the El Salvador vice president and angry residents still anxious to have questions answered regarding a forensic audit, there were also a number of residents there concerned about the noise level and behavior of revelers on Freeport’s Nautical Mile. Resident Robert Taylor said he wasn’t able to enjoy his backyard with family and friends. He said to the mayor and

the Board of Trustees, “The neighbors blame the bars. But I blame you. They do what you let them do. The legal noise level is too loud.” A number of other residents echoed his concerns and added that the party boats add to the commotion, operating loudly till the early hours of the morning. Longtime resident and meeting regular Alan Jay provided the tense night’s only comic relief when he made these suggestions. “At 10 p.m. drop the alcoholic content of the drinks. The drunks will never know and it will increase revenue for bars and restaurants.” He recommended a switch to music of the big band era. Rather than having complaints, he said you’re likely to have neighbors pulling out chairs and enjoying the music from their lawns. Guy Lombardo would approve. See page 8 for more on the Salvadoran visit issue.

The community newspaper - the glue that helps hold a community together, and the spur that helps keep it moving forward.

Who are the eco-heroes? Sometimes technology brings overuse of natural resources. Our ancestors in countries such as Israel or Italy, where water was a limited resource, used roof cisterns to collect drinking water and dams to gather rain runoff for irrigation. Tourists are always amazed at how cleverly they met their needs. Today, here on Long Island, we draw on water tables deep beneath the ground water for both our drinking needs and for landscaping, cleaning and industry – all as if this resource was inexhaustible. What will we do if we run out of drinking water – turn to desalination? They say just as wars today are fought over oil, tomorrow’s wars will be over water. Enter the eco-heroes, companies such as Hilton that use water from runoff to water their lawns. As individual homeowners we can also do our part. The nation’s largest township, our own Town of Hempstead, under the leadership of Supervisor Kate Murray, is showing the way. Last week at its showcase Levy Park and Preserve in Merrick, the town kicked off its new Eco-Heroes program. Over 2,000 residents have already signed up to purchase either rain collection barrels or composting units from the town at half-price retail. The rain barrels are designed to integrate with standard gutters and leaders. The water collected is not drinkable but can be used to water gardens and lawns. A typical roof can provide hundreds of gallons of water, according to town experts. Collecting it for use saves homeowners money on their water bills and also helps prevent runoff into bays and waterways. Call 378-4210 to register to receive a barrel for $45. Composting helps reduce expenses for lawn and garden fertilizers and also helps reduce the garbage flow. The town can provide instructions on how to compost correctly and avoid odors. Again, the cost is $45. Call 378-4210 for more information. Parents who conserve water and recycle using compost are teaching their children an important lesson, giving them a tangible way to improve our community. They are eco-heroes too!

ECO-HEROES: Above, Supervisor Kate Murray and Councilwoman Angie Cullin are joined by Rob Weltner of SPLASH and Neil Yeoman of the Town of Hempstead Solid Waste Advisory Committee in demonstrating the new composters. Below, Supervisor Murray demonstrates new rain barrels to Mr. Weltner. Also shown are Councilwoman Cullin and Richard and Lisa Schary of Friends of Norman J. Levy Park and Preserve.

by Janurie Ulett With the closing of two elementary schools holding over 300 students, Baldwin School District readies for the changes that will occur in the upcoming school year. In June the Baldwin community was forced to say goodbye to the Shubert and Milburn Elementary Schools. This outcome was caused by the loss of state aid and the new tax cap limit, which led to a $4.7 million gap in the Baldwin School District budget. “These schools closing makes it feel like the community is going down,” said former Shubert student and Baldwin resident Tyrone Lyons. In October 2011 the Board of Education established a task force of parents, PTA, staff and administrative members to provide information on the capacity of all Baldwin District elementary schools and how to maximize efficient use of the buildings. Classroom sizes, potential additional space, building conditions, handicap accessibility and student demographic were focused on by the task force, which led to the board’s decision to close the schools.

There were debates regarding the possibility of hiring a professional to help with this development. However, a task force of people who already had a personal connection and history with the district was preferred. “To me it’s gonna cause the schools to be too crowded,” said Baldwin parent Al Munoz, whose daughter attends Steele Elementary School. “But I won’t mind if they have enough room for the rest of the kids.” The former Shubert and Milburn students were dispersed based on zones, causing Shubert students to transfer to either Lenox or Brookside Elementary, which is recognized as a Blue Ribbon school. Milburn students were to transfer to Steele, causing parents such as Mr. Munoz to be concerned regarding larger number of students in each class getting the proper amount of attention. The remaining elementary school can absorb the excess students from Shubert and Milburn without the construction of any additional classrooms but the board was inclined to change the district’s class size policy. Grades K-2 will have a maximum of 25 students per class and grades 3-5 will

have a maximum of 28 students. “It’s really just unfair to the kids,” said Baldwin resident Jarred Thomas. “Now they have to transfer and commute to new schools.” The faculty transferred to the remaining five elementary schools in the Baldwin School District is based on their current tenure and subject area. “The number of teachers excessed is still a fluid number based on the class sizes,” said spokeswoman for

the Baldwin School District, Cristina Schmohl. “Each [class size] isn’t definitive until October 1 due to many late registrations.” “No one was happy to close these community schools,” Ms. Schmohl added. “It was done based on financial restrictions.” At the end of the 2012 school year, ceremonies were held to honor and commemorate the history of these venerable institutions.

Local LIRR escalators to receive rehabilitation work The first of a group of MTA Long Island Rail Road escalators undergoing major rehabilitation at Long Island stations has been placed back in service at Hicksville serving the westbound platform. The LIRR announced on Monday the anticipated schedule of testing for returning to service all the escalators being rehabbed under its upgrade program. The LIRR is in the process of upgrading safety features and refurbishing ten of its older escalators at stations on the Babylon Branch and at Hicksville. “The LIRR has been diligently working to upgrade the safety features and rehabilitate these escalators so that they can be placed back in service as quickly as possible,” said MTA spokesman Sam Zambuto. “We are very aware that this needed work has caused significant inconvenience to many of our customers. However, safety is our No. 1 priority. We are making significant progress and are confident that we will return many, if not all, of these escalators to service during September.” The LIRR anticipates the escalators at Lindenhurst, Babylon (two units) and Rockville Centre to be returned to service by the end of August. Another four escalators – Baldwin, Amityville, Hicksville (serving the eastbound platform), and Freeport – are expected to be back in service by the end of September. It is anticipated that Copiague’s escalator will return in October, if not sooner. The schedule of anticipated escalator final testing prior to their return to service is: Rockville Centre – week of August 20 Lindenhurst – week of August 27 Babylon (westbound platform) – week of August 27 Babylon (eastbound platform) week of

August 27 Hicksville (eastbound platform) – week of September 3 Amityville – week of September 10 Freeport – week of September 10 Baldwin – week of September 17 Copiague – week of October 15 All ten escalators receiving the major overhaul will be equipped with new, modern safety sensors, new or refurbished steps, new step chains, brake assemblies, top and bottom comb plates and controllers. Parts had to be shipped from Germany and Canada. The new controllers will allow for the possible future remote monitoring of the escalators’ operation. The work is being performed by a new escalator maintenance and repair firm, Nouveau, that the LIRR recently contracted with. The new escalator contractor – at the LIRR’s direction – has assigned teams of mechanics to work overtime, including weekends, as part of the effort to restore these units to service. In addition, the LIRR has established a new Elevator & Escalator Operations (E&EO) group, headquartered at an Operations Center at Lynbrook Station, staffed with certified “Qualified Elevator (Escalator) Inspectors” (QEIs). They have been instrumental in returning the Hicksville escalator to service at the end of last week, Mr. Zambuto said. The new E&EO group is overseeing the rehabilitation work. The LIRR will be more proactive in determining maintenance and identifying trends with a newly developed database on all new parts and installation dates, he added. The group is also developing a remote monitoring system that will automatically notify the LIRR of any unit that goes out of service, so that service calls can be initiated quicker and will limit downtime of elevators and escalators.

In the service Navy Chief Petty Officer Mitchell T. Inkpen, son of Bonnie Heller of Freeport, and Robert Inkpen, of West Hempstead, along with fellow sailors aboard the guided missile destroyer USS Farragut (DDG 99), \lang9 and guided-missile cruiser USS Hue City (CG 66), conducted a series of maneuvers and interoperability drills in a passing exercise with an Italian frigate and submarine. The U.S. ships joined ITS Scire (S527) and ITS Luigi Durand de la Penne (D560) for two days of coalition training events to promote interoperability and partnership for the shared goal of maintaining safety and security of the region’s sea lanes. Many of the events stationed the Italian and American warships in close proximity of each other and required precision execution. By keeping strong ship-to-ship communications and leveraging expert seamanship, the ships completed all training events safely and successfully. On both days, all of the ships participating executed a number of navigational

maneuvers, complemented by maritime warfare-specific events such as an antisubmarine warfare exercise and a maritime interdiction operations exercise. On day two, the Farragut’s visit, board, search and seizure (VBSS) team boarded Luigi Durand de la Penne in an exercise where the latter presented itself as a merchant vessel potentially smuggling illicit cargo. The Farragut is deployed as part of the Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group (CSG), supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. Sixth Fleet area of responsibility. The Eisenhower CSG includes aircraft carrier USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), CSG 8, guidedmissile cruiser USS Hue City (CG 66), guided-missile destroyers USS Farragut (DDG 99), USS Winston S. Churchill (DDG 81) and USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109), as well as the seven squadrons of Carrier Air Wing Seven and Destroyer Squadron 28. CPO Inkpen is a 1998 graduate of Freeport High School and joined the Navy in January 2001.

Freeport Public Schools today announced a free and reduced price meal (free milk) policy for Freeport area school children. Local school officials have adopted the following family eligibility criteria to assist them in determining eligibility: Food Stamp/TANF/FDPIR Households: Households which currently include children who receive Food Stamps or Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), or the Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR) must complete an application listing the child’s name, a food stamp, TANF, or FDPIR case number and the signature of an adult household member, or provide a Direct Certification letter from the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance. Children in the household with the same case number may be included on the same application. Separate applications are required for children in the same household with different case numbers. If the family does not list a Food Stamp, TANF, or FDPIR case number for all children for whom they are applying, then the application must contain all the information as required for “other households” as described below. Other households: Households with incomes the same or below the amount of money listed above for their family size may be eligible for and are urged to apply for free and/or reduced price meals (or free milk). They may do so by filling in the application forms sent home with a letter to parents. Additional copies are available at the principal’s office in each school. Applications may be submitted any time during the school year to Patricia Cacace, Cafeteria Office, 50 South Brookside Avenue, Freeport 11520.

Leg. Becker on El Salvador VP visit American Salvadoran Day has been an annual event in Nassau for many years. It is not uncommon for a representative or elected official to come to Mineola from El Salvador to celebrate the day and the special bond our two countries share. The celebration is never about the individual as a representative but about the country. This year, I was unaware of any controversy surrounding the vice-president of El Salvador and of certain political positions and actions of his in his home country, some of which, if true, I reject. However, in welcoming him I was acknowledging the people and country of El Salvador, as were other elected offi-

cials – not the man – who have a large population in Nassau and who have been allies to us in sending soldiers to stand with American forces in Afghanistan and Iraq in the war on terror. I have always had great respect for the Salvadoran people and for the sacrifices they have made in this war and this has always been the foundation of my appreciation for that nation and its people in celebrating American Salvadoran Day here in Nassau and not any particular elected official or representative of the government. Francis X. Becker is a Nassau legislator and Republican candidate for Congress in the Fourth District.

Christ Lutheran September events Rally Day at Christ Lutheran Church/Iglesia Luterana de Cristo is on Sunday, September 9 at both Engish and Spanish services, 9:30 and 11 a.m. Pastor Emi1ce Erato says, “Church members are welcomed back from summer activities and vacations on this festive Sunday. Coffee, bagels, cream cheese and other treats will kick off the academic year. Sunday School registration will take place for classes to start on September 16.

New York State, and for his service to the Indian-American community. “I am humbled and honored by this recognition,” said Dr. Kuncham. “This occasion of celebration on the anniversary of India’s independence is also a time for reflection. Are we living in the future that our forefathers hoped for? We are going through very difficult times; let’s create the future and not fear it. We must strengthen our resolve to eradicate poverty, disease, and corruption,” he added. Contemplating the wisdom and philosophy of Mahatma Gandhi, he implored all to “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” The ceremony was followed by a reception catered with traditional cuisine from India.

State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli was invited by the Long Island Board of Realtors to speak at the Coral House in Baldwin last week about current economic issues of Long Island and New York. The monthly and quarterly economic trends reviewed by Mr. DiNapoli have led to mid-year fiscal concerns. He spoke to a crowd of around 100 people about the ongoing vulnerability of Wall Street, which still heavily affects the economy. The topic of possible increase in jobs

and employment that would help realtors and indicate a continuing rise in sales was also focused on. According to Jennifer Freeman of Mr. DiNapoli’s press office, there are plans for economic recovery in New York but it’s still shaky. Attorney – and former State Assemblywoman – Ann-Margaret Carrozza also spoke on elder law and the importance of trust involved in transferring of property titles of the elderly. “Everyone enjoyed both speakers,” said Carol Gallo-Turschmann of Gallo Realty in Valley Stream, who assisted in organizing the event. “The speakers also enjoyed the event.”
