A Baldwin resident is one of two who have been arrested for an attempted robbery at' the Dime Bank on Merrick Road, Freeport on February 28. Police report that Heather Lewis, 19, of Emerson Avenue and Decolby Hester, 21, of Roosevelt allegedly entered the bank where Mr. Hester pretended to be a customer and Ms. Lewis displayed a gun, also pretending to point the gun at Mr. Hester to convince a teller to hand over money. The teller did not initially see the gun, police said, and did not give out any money. The teller then saw the gun as Ms. Lewis left the bank. Mr. Hester left the bank and when he was seen later by responding Freeport police officers, he flagged them down, acting as an innocent victim. Later, after an investigation, Mr. Hester was arrested at 2 p.m. at the Robbery Squad Office. Ms. Lewis was arrested at

8:40 p.m. on Grand Avenue in-Baldwin. The gun was later recovered and was found to be a BB gun. Two Freeport residents are among 22 who have been charged with fraudulently obtaining more than $115,000 in Unemployment Insurance Benefits while they were actually employed. District Attorney -Denis Dillon announced that Patricia Lall, formerly of Freeport, and Randall Maxwell of Freeport were arrested.

Town meeting discusses Baldwin water

SNOW scene. by Michele C. Swersey

Freeport was prepared by Pat Murphy, Village of Freeport Since elevating the low-lying roads and streets in Freeport over the past four years, the village has; been able to avoid most storm and high tide flooding. However, the magnitude of this past stonm and the time of the.tides threatened to flood certain areas in the low-lying sections of Freeport. Freeport has an excellent Emergency Management Team in position to respond to weather or other types of emergency events. In the case of this most recent storm, the team, which consists of representatives of the Fire, Police, Public Works, Electric,.Water and Communications Departments met before, during, and after the storm arrived to assess, the s i t u a t i o n and respond accordingly. Our first priority was to keep residents from leaving their vehicles in the streets. There are two important reasons for that directive. First, the cars would be subjected to possible flooding damage or become stuck in high water and require towing to clear

the street. Second, the public works department requires vehicles be moved off the public streets so the plows canget through. We have a standard procedure of providing information to our residents on our Freeport Emergency Hotline phone number, 377-2400. The information on the emergency management phone line is the most immediate and important advice specific to Freeport residents and should be their first response in the event of weather or any other type of emergency. Freeport's Emergency Management Team is well trained in responding to weather and other emergency problems. The village is ready to plow the snow as soon as it is feasible and we have the latest high-tech equipment available,to monitor .the tides. In addition, our Project Impact Program, a federal program which recognizes Freeport efforts to mitigate storm damage, has made a big difference in lessening the effects of local storms on lives and property in Freeport.

"The pumping stations'on Grove Street and Dartmouth' Street are the locations for the new sand and anthracite pressure (liters," Councilman Santino noted. "The new sand and anthracite pressure filters will improve Baldwin's water quality by trapping iron as the water flows through the filter. This is an effective method, which removes about 99 percent of the iron. Together, the stations will have a combined capacity of pumping six million gallons of filtered water a day." From an aesthetic point of view, both buildings will be designed to blend into the residential character of the neighborhood. They will be colonial-style with a brick facade and gabled roof, and if seen from the street will look like a residence. Councilman Santino concluded, "I hope to see more residents present at the next Baldwin/South Hempstead Town Meeting, which will be held on Thursday, March 15, at the Daniel J. Bradley Council Knights of Columbus Hall (1889 North Grand Avenue) at 7:30 p.m."

This past summer, Hempstead Town Councilman Anthony 3. Santino hosted a Baldwin/South Hempstead Town Meeting at the Daniel J. Bradley Council Knights of Columbus Hall. Many Baldwin residents were present and expressed their concerns about B a l d w i n ' s poor water quality. "Immediately following the meeting I met with representatives of the Long Island Water Corporation (a subsidiary of American Water Works Company, Inc.) where I shared the-concerns of the Baldwin residents," said Councilman Santino. "Due to our meeting the Long Island Water Corporation has announced plans to build iron removal facilities at two of its Baldwin pumping stations." 'The water improvement program, which is slated for Baldwin will cost the Long Island Water Corp. $7 million," said Councilman Santino. "Construction is scheduled to begin in the fall of 2001, with a target completion date set for the spring of 2002."

The right role models Imagine if the only role models young girls had were the women on television sitcoms and talk shows, music video performers and movie stars. Judging from the behavior and language of many of them, we would all be in trouble: Luckily, our young girls also have as role models their families, school teachers, coaches, religion teachers and,those who lead other organized after-school activities. ,And one of the most inspiring of these is Girl Scouts, who celebrate their anniversary this week. This is one group where girls of all faiths and backgrounds, athletic or not, get together to learn about .their community! Many have their first experience in community service with the Girl Scouts. They learn about friendship, and their leaders get to know their daughters' friends. They come to love their environment as a result of going camping and practicing living in harmony with nature. Girl Scouts is largely a volunteer organization, and we owe all of them our thanks for producing generations of young women who in turn have become wonderful role models.

JLJSt \A/rit© loy joan dolanoy CONSISTENT GOODNESS .... On Tuesday n i g h t , F e b r u a r y 20, R i t a Berg died. Wife and mother of three sons, Andrew, Matthew and Tom, her face was familiar to many although her name might not have been. Rita wasn't someone who looked for personal accolades or attention. At her funeral mass at St. Christopher's, Father Robert Kuznik described her as someone "consistent in goodness." The hundreds of people attending the liturgy were silent as they awaited words that might bring some meaning and solace to this sad event. She died too young and the liturgy readings about the raising of Lazurus from the dead seemed at first not to help in understanding this suffering and this death. "We want miracles," the priest said,

"but sometimes we don't recognize the miracles that are already in our midst. Rita was one of those miracles." Those who knew her described a devoted wife and mother. PTA Council President Mary Clark said, "I knew her for 13 years, and I never heard her speak ill of anyone. She really was one of the sweetest people." Another friend noted, "When you spoke to her, .you had her undivided attention." Rita was twice president of the Plaza PTA and the Baldwin High School PTA and was presently serving as legislative vice president of PTA Council. She was an avid volunteer for the Baldwin Boosters, the mother who was always willing to host football breakfasts, lunches and dinners. She volunteered at the annual • feast at St. Christopher's. Her colleagues at the Baldwin Library,


• era

where she was a library aide in the reference department, also speak of a competent and kind friend and co-worker. " v The scores of young people at her funeral stared quietly, some with tears streaming down their faces; others with shoulders quietly shaking in sadness. "She did so much," said Father Robert, and then hesitating, he looked out at the congregation and particularly at the young adults and said, "And many of you were the beneficiaries of her works." Ironically, I only met Rita Berg less than a year ago when I called her to see if she had the PTA statement that was read when the late Louis Rotondo had received the Council's life membership award. When I went to her home to pick up the material, we had a brief conversation about his life of service, particularly as a member of the Board of Educa-

tion, and his all too early death. Little did we know that less than ten months later, many of those same statements would be said of Rita, At her funeral, one woman who is a parishioner of Our Holy Redeemer Parish but who attends daily mass as did Rita, approached me. "You know, when I f i r s t began to come to St. Christopher's to m o r n i n g mass, Rita welcomed me..We used to chat each morning as we left church." Rita Berg w i l l be missed - by hcr family, by her friends, and by the entire community. Father Robert described her well, a woman who was consistent in goodness, a miracle in many lives and a role model to emulate.

Baldwin to clean up by Joan Delaney Baldwin will be litter free if Sanitary District Commissioner Jerry Brown, his colleagues and representatives of various community groups have their way. On February 28, Commissioner Brown, along with Linda Degan of the Baldwin Community Association (BCA), hosted an informational meeting to explain the Keep America Beautiful (KAB) program. KAB is a national non-profit organiza-

tion dedicated to empowering individuals to take a greater responsibility for enhancing their local community environment. It has affiliates in 22 states. Locally there are groups in Glen Cove and the Islips. Many people are already familiar with KAB from the 1971 national campaign featuring Iron Cody, the "Crying Indian." This public service announcement was considered one of the century's most effective initiatives in raising environmental awareness.

Defensive Driving courses offered at library On Saturdays, March 24 and April 28, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 pm (including a half hour for lunch) the Freepdrt Memorial Library will offer Defensive Driving Courses for anyone over the age of 16 with a current permit or license, .conducted by instructors who have been approved by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles to teach the Point/Insurance Reduction Program on behalf of the New York Safety Program. The cost is $25 per person, payable by check or money order only for each person (no cash and no refunds.) Anyone who arrives after 10:15 a.m. or does not complete the full course will not be eligible for a certificate. Class enrollment is limited; firstcome, first-served basis. Registration at the Reference Desk for both courses for Freeport residents is going on .now and for everyone else from March 18 until both classes are filled. All principal drivers are eligible - assigned risks, expe-

rienced drivers, commercial vehicle drivers and motorcycle operators, as well as youthful drivers. For additional information, pick up a flyer/registration form at the library. New York-drivers who successfully complete the Defensive Driving Course become eligible for no less than a 10% reduction in both liability and collision insurance premiums for a full 3-year period. In addition to the insurance discount, those drivers who have incurred violations points on their driver record during the 18-month period prior to course completion-will automatically receive a maximum of up to 4 points deducted from the total number of points on their driver record. The Freeport Memorial Library is located at 144 West Merrick Road, between South Ocean Avenue and Bergen Place, and is accessible to persons with disabilities. For further information, please call 379-3274.

Mr. Brown has already spoken to the BCA as a starting point in Baldwin. If there is sufficient community support, he will suggest that KAB function as a subcommittee of the BCA. Also present at the meeting were County Legislator Joseph Scannell, Assemblyman Robert Barra, and Town of Hempstead Councilman Tony Santino. All promised their support. Sanitary District Number Two, covering Baldwin, Roosevelt and South Hempstead, is willing to pay the cost of the program, which is based on population and is estimated at from $3,000 to $5,000. It provides various materials, training of community members and groups and on-going assistance. Mr. Brown stressed that in addition to the focus on eliminating litter, there is anecdotal evidence of secondary benefits including the revitalization of the. community, an increase in community pride and economic growth as well as a reduction in crime. He noted that the goals of the program are both short term and long term, with an initial projected implementation beginning in 2002.

Community leaders are being asked to explain KAB to their groups and report back at an April date. Projects and activities being considered as part of the program include: requesting alternate side of the street parking on county roads from midnight to 5 a.m. to facilitate street sweeping, various adopt a park, block and corner programs, a school district wide curriculum, better enforcement of various regulations including the pooper scooper law, enhanced code enforcement by the sanitary district, town, and county as well as the police department; various youth group programs and award projects, media awareness, and the development of a local environmental court to increase enforcement. The response of the audience members was generally positive with people wanting specifics on what their role would be. Meanwhile, Mr. Brown acknowledged that KAB was not meant to replace existing services or resources. Presently, residents who have complaints about sanitary conditions should call the sanitary district at 223-3207 to report violations. A code enforcement officer will follow up on the complaint.

Girl Scouts enter the 21st century During Girl Scout Week, March 11-17, Girl Scouts from around the country will celebrate the anniversary of the organization's founding 89 years ago. With the same dedication that the twelve initial Girl Scout members had in 1912, local girls will participate in activities that celebrate the fun and friendship that Girl Scouting provides. From nature walks 'and learning Morse code in the beginning of the twentieth century, to meeting with'Congress and developing web sites in the year 2000, Girl Scouts has always, been in step with the times. Traditional activities to commemorate Girl Scout heritage will take place nationwide, with girls performing, community service projects, wearing uniforms to school and houses of worship, holding birthday celebrations and much more. "As we celebrate the founding of Girl Scouting, we continue to commit ourselves to providing girls with a place where they can'develop qualities of character, conduct, and community service, and in the process grow into tomorrow's leaders," said Donna Ceravolo, Executive Director of the Girl Scouts of Nassau

County. "While the values that were synonymous with Girl Scouting in the beginning of the twentieth century still hold true today, we continue to evolve with a pro-" gram that works best for girls in the twenty-first century." Through a.recent study the organization found that although girls are maturing earlier then previous generations, they still very much want and need to express their concerns and, dreams. Along with parents, teachers and responsible-adults, Girl Scouting provides a safe environment where girls everywhere can express themselves and obtain the skills to become confident women. March 12, 1912 marked the beginning of an organization that for almost nine ' decades has helped girls grow stronger. Founder Juliette Gordon Low's vision of bringing something "special to girls of America and the world" culminated in the founding of the Girl Scouts, where girls throughout the nation develop physically, mentally and spiritually.

Fuschiflo netproposes a tax-free computer sales week access into school classrooms, but

Seeking lo build on his commitment to promoting bio- and high-technology and boosting New Yorkers' computer literacy, Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District - Merrick) proposed the creation of a "Sales Tax-Free PC Week" to encourage the purchase and use of home computers. According to Senator Fuschillo, his proposal seeks a one-week waiver of the state and local sales lax on home computers, accessories and certain software during back-lo-school shopping time in August. By enticing individuals, f a m i l i e s , and senior citizens to buy computers or replace outdated units, t'he goal is to bring a quarter million or more new computers into New York- • ers' homes, and .consequently lift New York's ranking among states for home computer use from its current 34 rank in the nation. "Over the past decade, knowledge of computers and their use is now considered essential for anyone seeking to excel in an increasingly technologybased economy," Senator Fuschillo said. "New York has been a national leader in bringing computers and Inter-

recent studies showed students who also had computers at home were nine times more likely to use the technolo-


According to Senator Fuschillo, an October 2000 report by the U.S. Commerce Department showed that New York lagged behind most states in the percentage of homes with computers. The study found that 48.7 percent of New York homes had computers, far behind states like Washington, California and neighboring New Jersey, Conn e c t i c u t and Vermont, w h i c h each scored in the top third of state's. "The 'digital divide' between New York and these other states puts us, our citizens and especially our children at a competitive disadvantage that government and schools cannot overcome without the help of parents and families in communities across the state," Senator Fuschillo said. "This initiative will help improve the technology-based edu-cation of our children and give New York a leading edge in the future." _ Senator Fuschillo's proposal, valued at $20 million, would provide a one-

week exemption from stale and local sales tax for purchases in-store or over ihe Internet of: • complete computer units, including laptops, desktops, or tower personal computers. A complete u n i t is comprised of a minimum of a central processing unit (CPU), slorage drive,' random access memory, keyboard and display monilor; ,. • peripherals such as printers, scanners, extra memory cards, cables, modems and CD-ROM drivers, when purchased within the same transaction as a complete PC unit of software when purchased as part of the same transaction as a new PC. Counties would receive reimbursement from .the state for lost sales tax

revenue under Senator Fuschiilo's plan. Expected retailer promotions and his initiative could save consumers h u n dreds of dollars on the purchase of new home computer equipment. "Promoting high-technology knowledge, skill and opportunity is a top economic development priority," 'Senator Fuschillo said. "This proposal seeks to build on our high-tech accomplishments and make additional investments in New. York's high-tech future." Last year, Pennsylvania pioneered the idea of a sales tax-free PC week, resulling in a threefold increase in computer sales by retailers'in that state. New York would be only the second stale to offer such a tax break.
