For Mother Earth County Legislator Dave Denenberg made this Mother's Day more special for the owners of this newspaper by letting us know the County Legislature committee he chairs had unanimously approved an ordinance designating as perpetual preserve former KeySpan property on Sunrise Highway in Bellmore adjacent to the county's Faith Laursen Meroke Preserve on the Bellmore-Merrick border. The Legislature is expected'to enact the ordinance at its May 21 meeting, thus ensuring that the land will join the preserve in enjoying forevenwild designation. The preserve was named for our late mother as proposed by County Executive Tom Gulotta. The former Keyspan property, which includes an old Brooklyn Waterworks pump station, makes up a large part of what visitors to the preserve can.see from the trails. It was deeded to the county for one dollar in 1999 with the condition that it be used as a "public park preserve and recreational area to be maintained in natural condition" or else revert to the grantor. LIPA Chairman Richard Kessel of Merrick helped make the deal. Our mother's advocacy for the preserve and others like it over the years, was based on the desire to keep at least part of our area in its natural state for the sake of everyone who lives here. This desire, which many of us share, is also important jn plans for the formation of a new Nassau County Open Space and Parks Advisory Committee, a measure which also unanimously passed the Planning, Development and Environment Committee on Monday and will* be voted upon by the Legislature May 21. . •..-:• v ., •. The measure requires regular meetings and recommendations from the new committee, whose members must have the appropriate background in such fields as open space, land use planning, land conservation, habitat preservation, archeology, historic, cultural or park preservation, protection, restoration and enhancement or municipal financing. It requires the Planning Commission to report on those recommendations in a timely manner. The Presiding Legislator, currently Judy Jacobs, and Minority Leader, now Peter Schmitt, the County Executive and the Planning Commission each get to appoint some of the nine members of the new committee. The Planning Commission has already made an open space inventory. The next step is for a program to be implemented. Recommendations of the new bipartisan committee will be a key to its success. In some cases land will become parkland or preserves. In others it may be sold for development. Having a grasp on the big picture should help our legislators make the right decisions, which will affect future generations.

Grand Ave sign facelift Sixty new street sign poles and one hundred fifty new traffic signs are in place along Grand Avenue in Baldwin - replacing old, rusted poles and faded signs - thanks to the efforts of Hempstead Town C o u n c i l m a n - A n t h o n y J. Santino. "This is the first phase of an ongoing effort to improve the appearance of the Baldwin community by replacing rusted poles and faded street signs that are under the jurisdiction of the Town of Hcmpstead," C o u n c i l m a n S a n t i n o noted. "Nothing is more unsightly than a twisted, rusted sign pole or a street sign that is so faded you can't read what it once said," Mr. Santino c o n t i n u e d .

"That's why I ordered the town's traffic control division - under whose authority the street signs fall - to do a comprehensive survey of the poles and signs along Grand Avenue and replace those that were in need of repair." Councilman Santino indicated that the signs replaced are the typical "No Parking," "No Stopping" signs that you find up and down the main thorough. fares of our town. "This is a small but important step toward the continued beautification of the Baldwin community, and you can be sure that we will expand our efforts to the other main roads in Baldwin in the weeks and months ahead," Councilman Santino concluded.

'Show Me the Money!'

Reunite taxpayers with lost IRS refunds In order to unite over 4,158 local residents with their long-lost tax refunds' Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy (NY-4) has set up a hotline for people to check and see if they are due a refund. W i t h i n Nassau and S u f f o l k Counties, Brooklyn and Queens, there are refunds sitting at the IRS. While the IRS cannot publicly announce which check belongs to which person, the refunds due to taxpayers range from $1 to $10,159. "Providing this list to taxpayers is a public service our office is happy to provide,". Ms. McCarthy said. "Taxes are on our minds this time of the year. By looking up your name, you could discover a r e f u n d you d i d n ' t k n o w about before." The U.S. Postal Service can't deliver a refund check when the addressee's name or address is incorrect or incomplete, or if they've moved without notif y i n g the IRS in writing of their new address. Taxpayers who moved since filing their last tax return are urged to file a Change of Address Form 8822 with the IRS. The form can be obtained by calling 1-800-829-3676 or by downloading it from the IRS website at www.irs.gov. Current federal law prevents the IRS from releasing the names on its own, so Congresswoman McCarthy has posted the l i s t on her website, w w w . house.gov/carolynmccarlhy. People can visit this website to see if their name, or the names of friends and family members, are on the list. If they do see their name, they need to call the IRS at I 800-829-1040, Press Option 2, and fellow the directions to claim their refund. Undeliverablc and unclaimed IRS lax

refunds: The number of unclaimed, undeliverable refunds in Brooklyn,,Queens, and Long Island is 4,158. The total of the Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island refunds is $2.884 million.

Students don't feel safe. They need leadership, guidance, and support at school, home, and in the community. We must rebuild a team.

Albert Renken Ed.D Answer: School board members neither teach nor evaluate student efforts. That is the responsibility of the p r o f e s s i o n a l staff. Parents are required to nurture, motivate and monitor their children's progress on a daily basis. The. Board of E d u c a t i o n is required through the administrative staff to provide policy direction and the resources to make education a meaningful opportu-

dollars of training. There has been a marked positive result in our Regents Graduation Diploma results. We have moved d r a m a t i c a l l y from 35% ( 1 1 8 Regents Diplomas) in 1996 to 63% (206 Regents Diplomas) in 2000. Additionally, our graduates are being placed and provided scholarship money to the most prestigious schools in the country. The Freeport school community, has proven it has both the capacity and a b i l i t y to achieve excellence despite its financial limitations. Our diversification has made t h i s d i s t r i c t stronger and required expanded efforts on the part of our staff to a t t a i n these results.

Answer: The role of a school board member is to f a c i l i t a t e the process of l e a r n i n g by passing resolutions that w i l l benefit the students and the c o m m u n i t y . In t h i s endeavor, the needs of our children should always come first and the student learning must dictate any action taken by the Board of E d u c a t i o n . If we are elected, we will fight to: Make every a d u l t accountable for their performance; recruit and retain good teachers, administrators and school personnel; create meaningful mentoring programs for students, teachers and par-

ents; provide services to reduce the gap between students who are s u c c e e d i n g and those who are f a i l i n g ; and ensure the efficient allocation of funds for the benefit of our students.

Teacher of CCD at St. Christopher's for the past eight years; Den Leader for five years for Pack 213; Current President of the Baldwin Council of PTAs (two year term). Answer S t u d i e s h a v e s h o w n t h e r e is greater s t u d e n t a c h i e v e m e n t when parents become involved in their child's education. This is the number one reason why 1 became involved in the first place. Since becoming involved, I've learned a tremendous amount about a variety of issues, the most important being the new New York State standards and assessments. I've attended many workshops where o t h e r d i s t r i c t s presented t h e i r plans to get their students to meet the standards. There were some things I think we could apply in our district. The middle school scores are in definite need of improvement. I t h i n k I can offer a parent's perspective on how to help students and families achieve higher standards. I'd like to see at least two parent/teacher conferences at all levels. I'd like to see improved communications between the school and home at the m i d d l e school level. This is one way to get more parents involved. Being a member of the Committee on Special Education and having two learning disabled children of my own offers me a u n i q u e p e r s p e c t i v e t h a t I can bring to the board. I can explain to them what these parents and c h i l d r e n go through and a d v i s e , them on what the district can do to help them. I am also a registered n u r s e w o r k i n g at Mercy Hospital. I am very interested in health issues in our schools. That is why I became a member of the Health and Safety Committee and the Indoor Air Quality Committee. I t h i n k I could offer useful advice on any health and safety issue that arises. I t h i n k we have an e x c e l l e n t high school and our district does an excellent job getting our students ready for college, the military or the work force. But there is always room for improvement and I'd like to be a part of that process.

With con- K cerns about new Regents diploma ^ requirements and concerns th- tn Baldwin is getting an unfair sha ^ of state m o n e y for e d u c a t i o n , § what better way to get the com- ^ munity involved than lobbying? I also recommend a community service project for the students of the high school. This could be a small assignment of fifty hours over the four years. The students would have a new world opened to them. It would provide valu- . able services for the community, and it w o u l d help promote the students in a good light. In summary, the board needs to be "ideas people," good listeners, organizers, and cheerleaders. I feel I would make a good board member.

Answer: The key to any type of educat i o n a l a c h i e v e m e n t is TEAMW O R K , and I b e l i e v e t h a t a Board of E d u c a t i o n m e m b e r should e x e m p l i f y that philosophy. A successful school district should model the body of government t h a t leads t h e m , and a Board m e m b e r is part of that leadership. Therefore, they play a major role in achieving academic success by m a k i n g i n f o r m e d decisions about many different issues, including curriculum. I believe one way to improve s t u d e n t a c h i e v e m e n t is by becoming a leader in the "Character E d u c a t i o n P a r t n e r s h i p " (CEP). The purpose of the CEP is to "foster the teaching and modeling of positive character traits within our nation's schools." No matter how much the world has changed, if a child is shown consistency, if tfoey feel secure in t h e i r e n v i r o n m e n t , if they are encouraged by their teachers and peers and are respected for who they are, the natural occurrence w i l l b e i m p r o v e d academic achievement. I believe the CEP w i l l provide all of these things and much, much more. Another way to achieve this is to enforce a STRICT dress code.

Answer: A m e m b e r of the board has many roles in working with the c o m m u n i t y . Most i m p o r t a n t l y , the board must be open to ideas and input from the c o m m u n i t y . .Once the idea is on the table, the board member p l a y s a role in finding a way to get the idea off the ground in a fiscally responsible fashion. One such way is to use the vast resources the comm u n i t y can provide. This was Demonstrated with the class size reduction and f u l l day kindergarten committees recently u t i lized. The board also must promote ideas of their own, again involving the community. An example would be a political action committee: The board would promote

P a r t i c i p a t i n g in outreach d i r e c t l y to parents, outreach to the PTA, and opportunities through the Parenting Center., Parents must support the efforts of the D i s t r i c t by h e l p i n g to ensure that their children participate in programs designed to offer the support they need. Student achievement must con-

tinue to be addressed through a comprehensive program of curriculum review, best educational practices, intervention, selected special programs, parent participation, and budgetary support. We must be patient with the programs in place and give them time to produce desired results. At the same time, we must carefully monitor our progress and remain ready to make necessary modifications. Finally, we must continue to help the community understand our achievement results and encourage them to recognize the many s i g n i f i c a n t areas where our achievement is extraordinary.

A closer look at Freeport, Baldwin budgets by Carl Gordon Residents will be voting on both the school and l i b r a r y budgets. Local school d i s t r i c t s have announced their proposed budgets and estimated tax rates for 20012002 in preparation for the May 15 public vote. Tax rates cited at this juncture are "average""or "blended" tax rates, among the four classes of property unique to Nassau County and New York City. Equalization rates among the classes, residential homes, coops and condominiums, utilities and

commercial, will not be available until later this year. Freeport The proposed budget for 20012002 is $91,764,288, an increase of $6,575,497, or 7.72 percent. The tax rate would rise to $60.47 per $100 of assessed valuation, an increase of $5.62, or 10.25 percent. For an average house assessed at $7,000 the added cost would be $393. The proposed Freeport Library budget is $3,869,802, an increase of

$237,096, or 6.52 percent. The proposed tax rate would be $4.46 per $100 of assessed v a l u a t i o n , an increase of 23 cents, or .544 percent Baldwin The proposed budget for 20012002 is $71,499,550, an increase of $5,755,125, or 8.75 percent. The tax rate would rise to $71.58 per $100 of assessed valuation, an increase of $5.72, or 8.67 percent. For an average house assessed at $7,000 the added cost would be $400.

Much of the increase is attributed to increased staff to implement the ' district's new policies to begin fullday kindergarten and to reduce class size. There is also increased staff projected for the secondary level and rising costs for BOCES services and health insurance. The proposed budget for the Baldwin Library is $2,388,250, or 6.17 percent. The tax rate would be $3.012 per $100 of assessed valuation.The increased costs are attributed to rising costs for books and health insurance.
