by Bill Bennett The Freeport Fire Department was called for a report of an overturned automobile on Sunrise Highway in front of Home Depot, on Tuesday December 4, at 10 a.m. The driver of the car was in the right lane heading westbound when she lost control of her car. The auto hit a pole, overturning and trapping the driver. The Freeport extraction team from Truck 217 freed her from the car. The driver was transported to Nassau County Medical Center. Sunrise Highway was closed and traffic was blocked in the area until the car was put back on its wheels. photo by Bill Bennett


Tuskegee Airmen speak at Freeport Rotary by Jason Gers (S . CO*

Three retired pilots from the original Tuskegee Airmen spoke Thursday night at the weekly Rotary Club dinner, recounting moving stories about prejudice, bigotry, war and redemption. The legendary Tuskegee Airmen were the first blacks allowed to fly military aircraft for the United States. A 1940 order signed by President Roosevelt led to the creation of the Tuskegee Institute for training these men. The project was often referred to as the "Tuskegee Experiment," because many whites in the military had no faith in the project, and many wanted and expected it to fail. However, said Lieutenant Colonel Clayton Lawrence, "no one told us that." In fact, the 996 original Tuskegee Airmen turned out to be among the most successful flying units in World War II. Captain Bill Wheeler, now 78, described a difficult life he faced growing up in a world much less egalitarian than the one we live in. "When I grew up in Detroit," he tells, "everything

smacked of segregation. My father, although college educated, didn't have a good job. A good job was to be in the post office, or...a garbageman." As a child, Bill Wheeler "grew to hate the United States," because of the discrimination he faced in all situations of his life. However, with the outbreak of war, he made the decision to join a part of the armed forces he selected rather than become jailed for draft-dodging. "I'd always wanted to fly," said the Captain, "I once won a radio program on why I want to fly.- and won ten flying lessons at 12 years old." • Although too afraid at 12 to take those lessons, he abandoned Howard University to join the air corps. Finding the discrimination in Washington D.C. to be far more institutionalized, he was extremely disappointed in his hopes for our nation's capital. If he wanted to buy a pair of pants, said Captain Wheeler, he would not be allowed to try them on, because white customers would consider them contaminated. Mr. Wheeler was picked for the first

class at the Tuskegee Institute. The selection process was very tough, and many did not make it through the training. However, by doing so, the program "picked out the black intelligentsia," who were able to make the Tuskegee Experiment really succeed. Overseas, as a member of the famed 332nd fighter group, the pilot found that Americans had brought their bigotry overseas with them. Italian women would have their heads shaved for talking to black pilots, and white pilots spread rumors like "if you get to close to one of them, your children will have monkey tails." Despite this extremely demoralizing environment, however, the airmen fought bravely in the air. "Of over 200 missions [we flew], we didn't lose a single plane." Major Victor Terrelong was attending City College at the outbreak of the War.

He applied and took-the test to become an aviation cadet, but his name was not included in the list of those who passed the test. Knowing for certain that he couldn't have failed it, he asked the proctor if he might see his lest scores. The proctor took him into his office and confirmed that Victor had not failed the test, but he told the aspiring pilot that the Navy was only training blacks as mess men and cooks. The proctor, however, passed a letter to another officer, and eventually Victor was able to take the test again, which he aced. However, the only place he would be allowed to go. he was told, was to Tuskegee. He was sent to Biloxi. Mississippi, for basic training, but rather than being trained, the black soldiers were subjected to "test after test, psychological. (continued on page 5)

Trustees set public hearings on budget, fire department contract for January 7 by Jim Golding Village trustees have set public hearings on the proposed 2002-03 budget and to consider the proposed contract between Freeport and the Volunteer Fire Department on January 7 at 8 p.m., following their regular business meeting. The board has already held public budget hearings on December 6 and December 8. In other business at Monday's board meeting, trustees awarded contracts of $476,000 to Wire to Water Inc., of Farmingdale, to install a remote control unit for the water system, and for $175,"000 to Carman-Dunne, P.C. Consulting Engineers of Lynbrook for surveys and site plans relating to the Power Plant 2 generation project. In comments from the audience, Alan Jay urged Village officials to use' "100 percent gas or coal, if it's clean" rather

than oil to fuel the plant. Stewart Lilker asked if the Village has received bids or awarded a contract for the power plant project. Mayor William F. Glacken said "at least one complete bid" has been received but no contracts awarded for the actual project. He added that the agenda item approved related solely to the surveying work. In other actions, the board removed a senior citizen exemption at 56 Cedar Street totaling $1,415, and lowered an assessment at 276 Hudson Avenue, from the current $5,500 to $1,090 for the 2002 tentative assessment roll. The trustees agreed to file the 2002 Final Assessment Roll of the Village on January 2. It will be open for inspection during normal business hours and remain on file for inspection for 15 days after the official notice is published. Trustees adjourned to executive session to discuss a personnel item and four real estate matters.

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

Stay close to home for last minute shopping Even the most organized of holiday shoppers will always have some last minute shopping to do. And yes, there are many of us who have barely started this year. The thought of crowded malls and big boxes and their sometimes dangerous parking lots is daunting. But there is an alternative. Shop your hometown! You're more likely to find store owners who can give you advice and counsel. You can be creative with gift certificates for haircuts or exotic meals, even the basic necessities, like groceries. Every dollar you spend comes back in part because local businesses help shoulder the local tax burden. And they give - and give - to local groups like the youth sports teams and school clubs. This year, many local stores are hurting. They will notice if their customers include the people to whom they contributed in the past. Do you wear their name on your team shirt? Be sure to stop by and thank them for giving to your local group. They will certainly notice.

Remembering what is most important Their spiritual leader looked out over the assembled congregation and had a few choice words for them. "You are exactly where you are supposed to be today." They were not out shopping, or busy cooking, or vacuuming the living room for company. While all those things might be important for holidays, they were not as important as gathering for the holy -days. Giving God his due came first. For Chanukah, that is the miracle of the eight days the oil lasted in the temple, reminding the people of God's care. For Christians, that is the birth of the Son of God, the greatest gift of all. All the other lovely tales that approximate God's love, all the giving, entertaining and sharing hold up but a candle's light to a Star.

MUSEUMS AND ROCKWELL.... We all know that the economy has been negatively impacted since September 11. While much has been made of the decline in stock prices and consumer spending, many of us are not as aware as we should be of just how our area's cultural institutions continue to be affected. This is especially true for museums. This fall I joined with a friend in subscribing to a series of art trips to various museums in the New York area. The coordinator of the program, who runs several of these trips a week, noted that during her last trip to the Brooklyn Museum, a guard recognized her from her previous visits. He came up to her and thanked her for continuing to come to the museum. When we had been there during the prior week, we had noticed how empty the

galleries were. The docent told us that they have been particularly hard-hit without the tourists who usually come out from the'city. The same held true during our first trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Amid galleries that should have been packed, we had the place practically to ourselves. We walked into the dining area and there was no line. We will see when we return in a few weeks whether the situation is the same. Only at the Guggenheim Museum did we see crowds, and that is a great tribute to the love people have for Norman Rockwell's art. His paintings are on display in an exhibit that is an interesting departure for this museum which is generally, committed to less traditional works-of art. Rockwell's fame is undisputed since

he painted covers for the Saturday Evening Post for 47 years. After that magazine stopped weekly publication in 1969, he became associated with Life Magazine and produced paintings that were less idealized and more influenced by important topical events. But Rockwell's recognition as a true artist has been late in coming as he was mostly thought of, by himself and the art community, as an illustrator rather than a painter of note. As one walks through the galleries at the Guggenheim observing his numerous paintings, particularly those covers he did for the Saturday Evening Post, one begins to think not only of the picture itself but of the universality of the situations that he chose to portray. Rockwell said that in selecting the ideas for his covers, "You have to think

of an idea which will mean something to all of them and it's darned hard to be universal, to find some situation which will strike the farmer, the housewife, the gossip and Mrs. Purdy." The interesting thing about viewing the Rockwell exhibit and that which distinguishes it from the several other I exhibits I have seen this fall is the expressions on the faces of the visitors. At other exhibits, particularly those to dealing with modern art, there was often a look of confusion or at least a per. plexed squint on people's faces. In those galleries containing classic or impressionist paintings, I often saw a look of awe on people's faces. But at the Rockwell exhibit, gallerygoers had wide smiles as they moved (continued on page 13)

Residents outline concerns at town meeting by Joan Delaney Approximately ninety residents presented a variety of concerns, complaints and problems at a cordial town meeting held on Wednesday, December 5, that was hosted by Councilman Tony Santino. A primary concern was the lack of parking at the LIRR station in Baldwin, particularly for Baldwinites. Mr. Santino explained that most of the parking lots were built with state funding and therefore could not be restricted for Baldwinites without incurring tremendous costs for purchase and upkeep. He noted that the town condemned and purchased land on Brooklyn Avenue and is now renovating a new lot which will hold 85 cars that will be earmarked only for Baldwinites. There is one other lot, north of the train trestle, also designated for Baldwinites. Clearly, however, parking space is inadequate, with so many people from other communities parking in Baldwin. Mr. Santino said that there are few alternatives, noting that most people feel that tiered parking would "citify" the area. He said he was "looking into" the possibility of acquiring another lot that is for sale adjacent to Milburn Avenue. Other speakers pointed out a series of policing concerns dealing with speeding and drag racing along Grand Terrace Avenue, loitering and possible drug dealing on north Grand Avenue, speeding and the failure to stop at stop signs in

the Bay Colony area and the parking of commercial vehicles and boats in residential areas. Officer Rick Fisher of the POP program (Problem Oriented Policing) explained procedures to combat serious as well as "quality of life" crimes and urged residents to call 911 if prompt action is required. Sanitation official John Sandrowcz responded to several specific concerns, particularly one on St. Luke's Place, and noted that his department recently issued 30 twenty-day violation letters to businesses along Grand Avenue and to some homeowners. The process requires that owners be warned and if violations are not corrected, the town will clean the property and bill for services directly or by adding to the owner's tax bill. Mr. Santino said that the Canal Improvement District bill to create a process whereby homeowners bordering two canals in Baldwin Harbor can effect a dredging project was stalled in the State Assembly after passage in the Senate. He described his lobbying efforts to move the bill along, hoping for it to reach" the Governor's desk in the spring. Resident James Delaney addressed Mr. Santino and presented him with a written report and pictures of the street construction project in mid-Baldwin. (In the interest of full disclosure it should be noted that Mr. Delaney is the husband of this reporter.) In his comments, Mr. Delaney

stressed widespread resident concerns with safety, work quality and timeliness and described a lack of communication with residents, particularly those whose private property has been impacted. In some cases there are two foot drops between driveways.and sidewalks, high aprons and already cracked new curbs. He described a failure of coordination between the town and the Long Island Water Company. Their initial drainage improvements left broken sidewalks which the town officials say are not their responsibility, although those sidewalk slabs are side by side with sidewalks being repaired by the town. The five-month project which was •originally promised for early summer began only in September. Mr. Delaney said residents have been unable to ascertain a target end date from field supervisors even as winter approaches. One field supervisor told residents, "If we don't finish it now, we'll finish it in the Spring." Mr. Santino, along with Commissioner Rockensies, promised "The streets will be paved and complet-

ed within two weeks," but invited Mr. Delaney to "call me if it's, not moving Q along by the end of next week." w Mr. Santino announced that the prop- JO erty on Church Street formerly owned by Congregation de Mita has been sold and Chamber of Commerce Director Doug Diana said that it has been purchased by a Baldwin business which will use it for an "accounting, medical, internet warehouse." An appeal case by the religious group is still pending. Another resident complained about the length of time it takes the building department to issue permits, even for simple remodeling work. Mr. Santino said that the town is adding more people to the department but said that he would "help to break the logjam." The resident filed his permit request last July for a 103 foot kitchen extension. In response to a question regarding the status of the move of the First Precinct, Officer Fisher said, "The First Precinct is not leaving Baldwin," despite rumors that the station would move to

Putting people first

Power Plant Concerns To the Leader: Residents 1'rom Freeport and Merrick gathered together this past Saturday afternoon to review particulars of an impending agreement between the Village of Freeport and the Long Island Power Authority. A signed letter of intent will be used as a guide to draw up a final contact which involves building two 44 megawatt diesel fuel turbines at Power Plant #2 in Freeport. The proposed project is scheduled to be completed before next summer. The group's discussions centered on keeping the community apprised of the latest developments, having an action plan ready to respond to any negative information received and developing.a watchdog committee. The project as originally described should be a basic re-powering of Freeport Power Plant #2. The dirty old diesel ship engines would be replaced by new, cleaner-burning, gas-fired turbines. Some of the group's initial concerns about the proposed project are as follows: 1) The old and dirty equipment must be physically prevented from ever running again. It must be either removed or effec-

tually destroyed. This is a valuable lesson other communities have learned the hard way. 2) The new turbines must run exclusively on gas. The contractor intends to maximize the use of fuel oil at the new plant. Using fuel oil in these turbines is 70% dirtier that using gas alone, and particulates once again become a real concern. The whole idea behind re-powering old and dirty power plants is to experience an increase in electric generation along with an associated reduction in emissions. The new GE LM6000 gas turbines which will be used at the plant are among the cleanest available. They are designed to be clean and fuel-efficient using gas. To allow the use of fuel oil under any other circumstance other than in a clearly defined emergency would be a catastrophic development for. nearby residents. 3) There must be no further development at the site. Brentwood residents were assured that there would be no further development after a new power plant was built in their community. An addition is now already under construction. Senator Charles Fuschillo has assured us that he intends to monitor developments and complete the project once, the From All Of Us At

right way. We depend on his continued involvement, and on his interest and support for the health of all the communities involved. Joe Kralovich The Old Lindenmere Civic Association Editor's note: A letter of agreement between LIPA and the village of Freeport to build a new power plant has been signed, according to LIPA Chairman Richard Kessel. "We're close to a deal," he said, but "until all the t's are crossed


Only $14

i i

and the i.'s dotted," it will not be made public. The agreement is contingent upon Freeport's hiring a developer. "Our work is done," Mr. Kessel added. The new plant should be ready by next summer., he said. The Freeport board at its last meeting awarded a $175,000 contract to CarmanDunne, P.C. Consulting Engineers of Lynbrook for surveys and site plans relating to the Power Plant 2 generation project.

FHS from celebrates human rights page 10 Cari truly engaged a sometimes skeptical audience on tough topics. Regarding the dicussion, Yolanda Brown commented, "People are honest, you hear what they really think. Hopefully [through these presentations] we can hreak down these barriers." Students were also wowed by Crystal Mayo's performance of "Echoes From the Past," dramatic monologues through the voices of historically significant Black women. She began with the true narrative of a slave, Henrietta King, who is crushed and disfigured by her masters wife with a rocking chair after denying taking a piece of candy. She spoke through the voice of Sojourner Truth, who stood up for a woman's strength, ability and natural rights at a conference on abolitionism. Mrs. Mayo also took on the role of Ida Blackwells, who won damages from a railroad company after being denied her rightful place in a car restricted by the conductors to only white women. Her finale illuminated the story of Elizabeth Eckfort, the 15,-year old:who

was turned away by bayoneted guards from Little Rock Cental High School after the Supreme Court struck down the principle of segregated schools. These magnificent stories truly left many in the audience teary-eyed as they walked to their next appointments. Another dramatic monologue was performed by a colleague at Theater Works, who acted out the story of a 15 year old Irish girl, who is forced to immigrate alone to America after her older brother becomes unable to support the family any longer. The story of this fictional character, Bridget Fitzgerald, takes the audience through several historical events, from the potato famine to the Triangle Shirt Factory fire. Perhaps the most stunning speaker of the day was Sergio Argueta, a former gang member who now leads an organization he founded, STRONG, Struggling to Reunite Our New Generation. Originally from Hempstead, Sergio

jUSt WTltO by joan clolanoy from page 5 from painting to painting. In some instances, a sigh escaped their lips and frequently there were comments of recognition and remembrance. How could there not be when Rockwell's work has got to be some of the best known calendar art around? I was pleased to see the original painting/The Problem We all Live With" depicting the integration of schools in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1964. Back in November, 1999 I wrote about Ruby Bridges, who was the little black girl in white dress and braids in the picture, after I heard her speak at Baldwin Middle School about her life and racism. Rockwell's skill at coming up with new ideas on a traditional theme is seen in the many Christmas covers he produced. My favorite, and one I don't recall ever seeing before, shows a young boy who has discovered a Santa Claus outfit in his father's dresser drawer. The boy's face expresses a range of emotions that enchants viewers. By the end of the tour, people were buzzing with delight about the pictures but they were also discussing the art world and those people who decide just

what constitutes great art and what does not. The definition of an artist speaks primarily about a person who is able to execute work with skill. Certainly Rockwell falls into that category. Definitions of fine art note that a work must contain "meaningfulness" as well. One had only to eavesdrop on conversations to recognize that Rockwell's art fulfills both criteria. This is particularly evident in the gallery devoted to the paintings which some say are his greatest masterpieces, "The Four Freedoms." Set apart in their own section, the paintings represent Rockwell's contribution to the war effort and his interpretation of Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous speech. "Freedom of Speech," "Freedom to Worship," "Freedom from Want" and "Freedom from Fear" are especially significant and thought-provoking during these troubling times. We urge everyone who is considering a trip to the city to make it a point to head north to 89th Street on Fifth Avenue for a stop at the Guggenheim Museum. Another stop should be the Metropolitan Museum at 80th Street and

sporting devijs by Linda Hendrickson Freeport's athletes stood tall at the annual Gridiron Dinner held Tuesday night at Crest Hollow Country Club in Woodbury. D'Brickashaw Ferguson walked away with the 61st Thorpe Award as well as the Martone Award. This was the first time since 1979 that a lineman won the Thorpe Award for the most outstanding football player in Nassau County. Travis Jinks, the Red Devils' wide receiver, was runner-up. Jinks ran for 812 yards and 14 touchdowns. Ferguson, a 6'5" honors student, played both offensive tackle and defensive end. "Brick is the most dominant lineman I've- ever coached," reflected Coach Russ Cellan. "He's heads and shoulders above anyone else." It's tough for a lineman to win. They're the unsung heroes on the team. He also was a unanimous choice for the Martone Award. Ferguson's long reach helped to open holes for the offense or pushed opponents back until the official's whistle was heard. He accumulated 55 tackles, 6 sacks and 8 quarterback

hurries. Ferguson is being recruited strongly by the University of Virginia and Michigan State. He has earned a 3.8 grade-point average and has also earned All-Conference and All-County Honors as a discus and shot putter in Nassau. Jerry Mackey earned the Finer Award as Nassau's top lineman at the same dinner. Former players Morion Greenwood and Clifton Smith won the award in the past and Mackey feels honored to continue the tradition. Coach Cellan says that lineman has become a glamorous position at F.H.S. Mackey had 85 tackles (51 solos), five pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one sack. Coach Cellan was named Coach of the Year for Conference 1. The dynamic sister and brother combo of Kim and Stephen Wilson led the Red Devils to a 660-642 win over Garden City in the first rifle match of the 2001 season. Kim opened with an impressive two target total of 180. Teddy Kimlingen and John Anderson completed the scoring for Freeport. Kim Wilson paced the Red Devils to a 667-632 win over Lynbrook in Air Rifle

Competition on Thursday. "Kim shot 98 out of 100 on her second target and 92 on the first for an incredible score of 190," commented Coach Bernard Larkin. "Those are extremely high scores especially so early in the season." The Red Devils, are now 2-0. Jonathan Tonkowich's 279 was the highest game of the day while John LaBau (238) and Corey Hanna (208) contributed to the first win of their bowling season. Lauren Swanson's 245 and 205 added to Marjorie Frazier's 213 helped pace the'girls to an impressive win against the house totals. With an uneven number of teams in the league, each team bowls against the house once during the season. The JV Lady Devils Basketball Team hosted Great Neck South, South Side, Carey, Farmingdale, Port Washington, Manhasset and Wantagh in an eight team tournament Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Freeport defeated GNS 38-33 and Farmingdale 29-21 to reach the finals against Manhasset. Unfortunately, the girls got off to a slow start and were unable to overcome the early deficit. Shauna Patrick and Shayla Crummell

were named to the All Star Tournament Team. Samantha Geraci-Yee sang the National Anthem for the various games. .Captain Jeanelter Scott remained undefeated as Freeport's first singles as she led Dodd's Badminton Team to a 92 season. A complete player, her forehand and backhand strokes overpowered her opponents. Ciara Vasquez. Alex Haser, and Haylin Mills successfully filled the second, third, and fourth singles positions respectively. All improved their serves and drop shots to ease passedjheir competition. Fourth doubles Erika Jones/Rashannu Ward compiled a 9-2 record. They worked well as team and exhibited strong net play. Second and third doubles, Jenny Aroajo/Ragucl Ortega and Melody Godbott/Grace Smith sported an identical 8-3 record while fourth douâ&#x20AC;˘ bles Cindy Espinal/Jenniler Sunez went 7-4.. "The girls stuck together the entire season," reflected Coach Haren'Raser. Each showed a true heart and desire to play. Shana Briggs, Nina Belvcrdy, Ashley Fletcher and Jessica Bently capably filled in when other players were absent or injured.

Merrick. Mr. Santino detailed the complicated history of the project, announced over four years ago, whose costs are estimated at $7 million for construction and $7 million to acquire the properties on the west side of Grand Avenue north of Merrick Road. Presently, funding awaits a county budget and the legislature's vote to bond the project. The Councilman noted that while the first preference was for the project to happen, "The town will be there to help if for funding reasons the county decides not to go ahead with the project." Presently the next phase of facade improvements, which are cost-shared by the town and business owner, is slated for the north side of Merrick Road. Phase one began on the east side of Grand Avenue. Residents in North Baldwin stressed, however, that more needs to be done for their area, also urging town efforts to attract new businesses throughout the community. Concern was expressed about the continuing vacancies in the Baldwin Shopping Center in mid-Baldwin, owned by the Rosen family. Mr. Diana, who has met with Mr. Rosen numerous times, expressed frustration."! haven't the foggiest idea of what he's trying to do." Noting that "Baldwinites have money and want to spend it in Baldwin," Mr. Diana agreed, saying that his pet peeve is, "You can't even buy a man's tie in Baldwin." He described Chamber of Commerce's efforts to attract businesses


saying that if the First Precinct project didn't happen, he knew of developers who might be interested in that property. Mr. Santino outlined a wide range of projects undertaken by the town. While residents were concerned and some were / angry about specific issues, all seemed pleased that they had one elected official on the town level to whom they could turn and who was committed to community meetings and responsive to residents. One resident raised the issue of the redistricting, which will take place as a result of population shifts reported in the recent census. He urged support for a change in boundary lines for state senate,, assembly and congressional districts so that Baldwin would not have so many elected officials representing such small sections of the community. Following a study by a state task force, that legislative action is pending in Albany. Lobbying efforts on this issue were spearheaded by Doris Duffy of the Baldwin Community Association. Responding to kudos by residents for his representation of all of Baldwin, Mr. Santino described his pride in being "the one legislator who represents the whole community." Ending the meeting on a humorous, although touchy political note, Mr. Santino was asked, "When it snows, will the plowing be better?" referring to the fiasco that occured in some communities last year. Succinctly, Mr. Santino said, "Yes." When the resident reiterated his question, Mr. Santino added, "Much better," as residents'laughed and applauded.

jUSt WTJtO t>y joan delaney from page 13 Fifth Avenue where the huge traditional Christmas tree, decorated with magnificent rococo angels, is now on view in addition to the museum's numerous other special and permanent exhibits. The Brooklyn Museum has opened a new gallery entitled "American Identities" which showcases a variety of art, including painting and sculpture, as well as the decorative arts, to tell the story of American history, particularly in the New York area. If the day is nice, you can also stroll through the adjacent Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, leaving

your car in the same parking space. Many of us have engaged in specific activities since September 11, to help those directly impacted by terrorism. In the months to come, there will be many more less obvious but still real victims of terrorism, people whose jobs will be eliminated if we do not help them. Let us enter the holiday season with a commitment to visit a museum and help this somewhat forgotten segment of the city's 'workers. At the same time the experience will lift our own spirits with the universal messages that great art conveys.

Deputy Mayor honored Freeport Deputy Mayor Renaire Frierson was among the 11 AfricanAmericans honored by the Amistad Suffolk. County Black Bar Association. In announcing the winners of the awards, association President, Derrick J. Robinson explained that the group's mission is to increase the number of lawyers of color, reaching out to students at an early age to inspire their interest in law as a profession, to provide a means of delivering a fair system of justice, and as a method of economic empowerment. Mr. Robinson added that Ms. Frierson, as well as the other honorees, are true role models of that goal. As well as serving as Trustee and the appointed Deputy Mayor of the Village of Freeport, Ms. Frierson is the Executive Director of the Nassau County Commission on Human Rights. Ms. Frierson was raised in Freeport, attended Freeport schools and earned a B.B.A. in International Business with a minor in

Spanish from Hofstra University. She went on to earn a J.D. degree from the Boston University School of Law, where she was the recipient of the Barbara Jordan Scholarship. Ms. Frierson served as an Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan under the leadership of District Attorney Robert Morganthau between 1985 and 1989. She was the first full-time, female, African-American Deputy Village Attorney in Freeport, where she served as an assistant to thenVillage Attorney Bill Glacken. Ms. Frierson was personally congratulated on her achievements by New York State Comptroller Carl McCall, the keynote speaker for the event. Ms. Frierson was grateful to the Amistad Suffolk County Black Bar Association for the award and said she was honored to be recognized, along with so many people who had worked hard to ensure that all individuals receive equal justice.
