Village accused of illegal negotiations for Power Plant; stack tests released ^ by Jason Gers At Village Hall last week, accusations flew which may slow the village's plans to replace Power Plant 2. A letter sent by Freeport resident Stewart Lilker to Lisa Feiner, an Assistant Attorney General in the Environmental Protection Bureau, charges that the village has negotiated illegally in its attempt to make a deal to build a new power plant in south Freeport. The village flatly denies any illegal activity. In the letter, Mr. Lilker writes that three bids were opened on November 6 in response to the village's October 25 Request for Proposals (RFP). According to Mr. Lilker, two of the proposals were declared "no bid" by village purchasing agent Theresa Baldinucci.

The proposal, which was not declared "no bid," is, according to Mr. Lilker, also incomplete, because it contains no purchasing agreement. Freeport has sought to reserve an option to purchase any new power plant built. ; Incomplete bids are not sufficient, nor are they legal, and Mr. Lilker cites New York State General Municipal law, § 103 [11] [b] "any amendment to or reformation of a bid or a contract to rectify such an error or mistake therein is strictly prohibited." Such an amendment, sometimes called a "collusive bid," amounts to a circumvention of the public bidding process. Joe Kralovich, President of Merrick's Old Lindemere Civic Association, also tells The Leader, "I was there when the bids were opened and none were declared complete at that time." continued on page 10

Freeporters voice complaints about proposed electric hike by Jason Gers Significant, but not vociferous, dissent was heard last Wednesday at the Public Service Commission (PSC) public hearings on the Freeport utility's proposed rate increase. The rate increase, which was originally proposed to the PSC last July at 7.67%, now stands at 7.1% in the two parties' current joint proposal. Freeport Electric's current residential winter rate per kilowatt-hour (kw/h) is 6.390. The summer rate for over 750 kw/h is 7.230, and over 1000 kw/h costs 7.670. Freeport Electric's basic charge is $5. According to Michael Lowndes of the Long Island Power Authority, LIPA's monthly service charge is $17.179. In winter or summer, the first 250 kw/h cost 12.490 each. Over 250, each kw/h costs

13.670 from June-September and 11.790 , 'from October to May. In addition, each kilowatt-hour is subject to a 0.6870 fuel adjustment charge to offset high fuel prices experienced in 2000. Critics of the proposal spoke at both the 1 p.m. and 7 p.m. hearings, which lasted approximately an hour each. Following the public hearings were evidentiary hearings which included crossexamination of witnesses from the utility • and from the Public Service Commission by Stewart Lilker, who was granted intervenor status by the presiding judge, Rafael Epstein. An intervenor may cross-examine witnesses during the PSC hearing. Mr. Lilker expressed a desire to postpone or extend the hearings, due to what he considered to be poor public notification. Judge Epstein ruled that notification continued on page 2

Village accepts contracts for tennis courts, wells, garbage by Jim Golding Freeport trustees on Monday awarded contracts of nearly $999,000 for trash collection and $230,000 for tennis court rehabilitation. The contract for solid waste and recyclable materials collection amounting to $998,898 went to SPM Sanitation Inc., of Lindenhurst. The North East Park tennis court contract of $229,956 went to Techcon Contracting Inc., . of Westbury. Resident Alan Jay made a plea that the village put in'basketball courts at the park instead of refurbishing the tennis

courts, which he called "a luxury the taxpayer could be spared." The amount for the trash collection only includes the first year of the fiveyear period of the contract. Responding to a question from resident Stewart Lilker on the totals for the remainder of the contract period, Mayor William F. Glacken replied the amount "is in accordance with the consumer price index." The board also accepted a contract for $166,285 with Layne Christensen Company to rehabilitate three wells, 3, 5 and 9, and a proposal from Sidney B. Bowne & Son of Mineola for the sur-

veying and drafting of the 2002-03 road improvement project, in the amount of $20,300. In other actions, trustees set a public hearing for February 11 to amend the Village Code to authorize the Police Department, Superintendent of Buildings and Nassau County ASPCA to enforce provisions in chapter 78 of the

code pertaining to animals. They also approved the purchase of a c speed-monitoring trailer for the Police 3 Department, which will advertise .for Q. bids. The trailer would be used4n areas where there are complaints of speeding. Trustees adjourned to executive ses- C sion to discuss 12 personnel items and two real estate issues.

Some ideas on how to observe Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Next Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a national holiday in honor of one of our country's most visionary civil rights leaders. His dream of a world in which his little children would have the same opportunities as white children has not yet been achieved. Still we are much farther along than we were. When we observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we are not just recalling an historic figure, we are stressing the importance of the dream he shared with us. What can we 'do to make Martin Luther King Jr. Day more meaningful? There are many possibilities if we just think on it a little. Here are a few suggestions: Did you participate in the civil rights struggle? Tell someone about it. You can write a letter to the editor of this newspaper. You can share your story in a letter to a child or on the bulletin board of a senior center. Do you have the responsibility for hiring or giving out scholarships? You can promote your offerings in the minority communities. Do you do business with suppliers that are owned by minorities or hire minorities? If not, you can try to find out which firms you can switch to. The same goes for your personal shopping. Are you an artist or a writer or a composer? You can choose themes that promote the idea of racial equality. Are you a teacher or a preacher? You can share the message of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream with those you lead. You can arrange for a field trip into the past, if only to the local library. If your group is decidely not mixed in racial background you can start an exchange between groups of different backgrounds, team up with a sister church or school for the purpose, so that both can benefit. Any team that you can build, that brings groups together working toward a common goal, can be a step toward racial harmony. This can be in sports, PTA, business, the theater, ambulance work or whatever. According to.studies, most of us will not be remembered past one generation. But a few, like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., will stand out. They are somewhat like the pebble thrown in the water that makes a splash. Others are like the concentric ripples that fan out from where the pebble fell. Eventually the last wave reaches the shore. Someday, with the help of many unknown and unremembered people, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s dream will come true.

And please, write a letter

The appointment of a board of high-profile' education experts to tackle the problems at the Roosevelt Public School District may be a hopeful sign. But state funding is crucial to the survival of the district. Please write to any and all of your political representatives and urge them to get together to work out a bailout, for the sake of the children of Roosevelt and the surrounding districts.

roundaloQut MAKING A REAL SPLASH: The Long Island Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society recently honored Carole Murphy (pictured), an aquatics instructor at the Freeport Recreation Center, for her outstanding dedication and .commitment to serving Long Islanders with multiple sclerosis (MS). Ms. Murphy, who has been teaching an MS aquatics program for the Chapter for more than 10 years, has helped countless individuals with MS to improve their overall fitness and outlook on life through her stimulating and unique program. "Carole has a real understanding of the.varying needs of her students and brings a level, of enthusiasm and dedication to each class that is beyond description," said Long Island Chapter President Johanna Biederman. "Everyone that takes her class loves her and it's certainly easy to see why." Ms. Murphy's adaptive aquatics class is perhaps one of the most popular exercise and wellness programs offered by the Long Island Chapter of the National MS Society. photo courtesy of National MS Society, LI Chapter

OQ tt>

jUSt writ© t>yJoan dolanoy MR. CLEAN .... Baldwin is either the community with the cleanest wash or something else is going on. This past week, there was a legal notice in several local papers advertising a Town of Hempstead Zoning Board hearing that will include a request for a variance to install a laundromat in a building in mid-Baldwin that was formerly a bank. What's going on? On Merrick Road, a new laundromat is in the process of being built and the sign outside says that it will have over 200 machines. This past year a new laundromat was constructed on south Milburn Avenue _near Atlantic Avenue. Another laundromat on Merrick Road was expanded several years ago and a new small laundromat was built fairly recently on Grand Avenue opposite the library. Three older laundromats are located along Grand Avenue. I want to know where all the wash is coming from. There are several obvious possibilities. Has there been an increase in construction? Are there more homes in Baldwin?

With the exception of several small senior citizen condo communities which have their own laundry facilities and a relatively small number of new homes that are zoned for single families, there hasn't been a rash of building in Baldwin. So where are all the customers coming from? It seems impossible to believe that most people who have their own homes haven't bought a washer and dryer. Those labor- and time-saving items are generally the first new appliances that are purchased, since former apartment dwellers usually find it such a relief not to have to lug wash to a laundromat. I can only surmise that the glut of new laundromats is an indicator of a problem that Baldwnites have been complaining about for a long time: illegal overoccupancy. Many peopfe would like to believe that this illegal overoccupancy is only taking place in apartments that are above and behind retail stores in town. But 1 suspect the problem is much bigger than that. Walk around and take a good look at some of our one family homes. They really aren't one family homes;

they have been converted to two family homes, sometimes more, frequently without benefit of permits and variances. These additional residents undoubtedly don't have access to washers and dryers and I suspect that these folks are many of the customers who are creating a demand for so many laundromats in town. The situation in- Baldwin reflects the lack of quality affordable housing throughout the county. There is a scarcity of housing that is constructed legally, with proper amenities and with governmental m o n i t o r i n g of incomes and rents. Too often, while landlords who provide illegal housing add rental units to the market, they are hardly offering them for prices that are affordable. The cost of many of these units often requires families lo double up to afford the rents and many of these apartments do not contain many of the basics that rental units should provide. Illegal housing, however, is one of the hardest violations to correct. People do not have to allow inspectors into their homes or apartments. Schools are not in the business of

rr tracking illegal housing. Their respon- c sibility is confined lo checking lo see if students are living in (he school dis- o. 6! v; trict, not whether the apartments or homes they live in are in compliance with zoning codes. In Baldwin, that is the job of the Town of Hempstead's B u i l d i n g Department. The Baldwin Chamber of ro Commerce cost-shared a study with the Town of Hempstead two years ago which provided all kinds of interesting H statistics. It showed [hat the average tfl household income in 1998 was $82,577. According to (he 1990 census, 81.7 percent of homes were o owner-occupied with only 15.3 per- tn cent rentals. Clearly, all the owners of new laundromats around town have done their own studies because they wouldn't be sinking so much money into Ihese businesses if (hey weren't certain dial (here would be sufficient customers for their services. Does anyone else have a plausible explanation for where all the laundry's coming from? And if we can figure out this puzzle, perhaps we can also determine who's .eating all (he pizza in Baldwin.

Baldwin students enjoy full day • by Joan Delaney The first regular Baldwin Board of Education meeting of the new year, held on January 9, was cordial and focused on education and educational philosophy. It was a sharp contrast to the December meeting in which audience questions were heated and highlighted personal legal concerns connected with alleged threats to the district. Assistant Superintendent Jeffrey Hollman presented an overview of the first semester of the new full-d^y kindergarten program, stressing tha't the additional hours of class time give students and staff more time to develop targeted skills and curriculum while allowing the five year olds "time to make discoveries themselves." The presentation, prepared by Principal Debbie Martin, showed an integrated curriculum of English language arts, social studies, math, science and health with opportunities for classes in art, music and physical education. Superintendent Kathy Weiss assured the audience, however, that "There's still

time for play, but play that encourages social skills and learning." During the second semester, those students in need of additional help in reading readiness will participate in the primary level reading program where a maximum of four students work with reading specialists. 'Mr. Hollman said that teachers in grades one through three will now be evaluating the impact that the full-day kindergarten program will have on the subsequent primary level curriculum since the youngster* have had time to pursue topics in greater depth. In other business, Dr. Weiss introduced Arlene Guerrero, who will be the new assistant principal at Baldwin Middle ' School. A memorandum of agreement was signed between the district and the Baldwin School District Nurses' Association effective from July I, 2001 until June 30, 2005. Deputy Superintendent Lee Chapman explained new state regulations which now require that districts take on the responsibility of documenting the envi-

ronmental and historic impact of capital improvement projects. Previously, the State Education Department (SED) contacted appropriate agencies regarding those issues but that process has been "pushed down" .to the district level. Now, the board must vote publicly on •these resolutions, indicating whether or not the proposed improvements have a significant impact. They must then forward the resolutions to SED together with correspondence from the agencies or departments deemed appropriate to make those determinations. Board member James Scannell, referring to the additional staff hours required for this work, described it as "another unfunded mandate." , The project in question was the simple

replacement of the healing, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system for the music wing at (he high school. Materials fowarded to the SED included correspondence with (he NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and HistoricPreservation "which determined (hat the proposed project will have no significant adverse impact on historic resources." In further discussion it was noted that bidding cannol begin on the project until the SED gives its approval, a process which takes at least 12 to 16 weeks. There was lengthy discussion on the educational and financial impact that results when the district responds lo threats. At last month's meeting, Board member Bill Edclman had questioned (continued on page 7.)

Baldwin students enjoy full day from page 5 whether or not the district could sue parents of students who make such threats to recover the costs involved. He stressed that he was not primarily interested in the financial return but rather in "encouraging parents to speak to their children." He added, "It's not about making money; it's about making a point." Dr. Weiss had collected some information showing that over 200 staff hours (administrative, secretarial, custodial, maintenance and security) were employed responding to one such threat. However, district counsel indicated that a xhool district cannot pursue such issues n small claims court and she indicated, 'Anytime you go to court it costs a lot of noney." Mr. Edelman pursued the issue on the 3asis of the principle of forestalling furher incidents, but board member B.A. >choen said in his mind the greater mpact was in the "orderly progression of :ducation that was lost." Approximately ">0 percent of students did not attend chool on one day on which there was a hreat.

Sisters United in Health Hermanas Unidas en la Salud by Marilyn Goldstein


In our Hispanic and African-American communities, women are dying in disproportionately high numbers from breast and invasive cervical cancers. But this doesn't have to be. I "Mortality can be reduced with early cs detection and treatment of many cancers," said Diana Benavides, the multicultural I educator at Planned Parenthood of Nassau County [PPNC]. That's why a collaborative of 10 Long Island-based agencies spearheaded by PPNC have come together—- under the names "Hermanas unidas en la salud,'\ in Spanish,.and "Sisters United In Health," in English — with the valiant objective of saving lives. w To reach its goal, the group aims to raise minority populations' awareness of the importance of early detection of both breast and cervical cancer, and to make sure testing and treatment follow. The coalition will offer free programs by trained educators within the" community and help in securing affordable diagnostic and treatment services. "While getting women to take care of themselves sounds easy, this is not always the case," said Hillary Rutter, director of the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program. "Many women neglect their health care because they have so many other pressing needs or don't know where, to turn for affordable care. The real need is getting people to see that this is an important issue, that they must act on it, and that there are health services to..answer"tHeir needs," Ms. Rutter said. And too many women ignore the issue


because they would rather not know they have cancer than face the disease realistically. The results of this neglect are startling: • While African-American women contract breast cancer less often than white women, they are dying from breast cancer at rates higher than other ethnic groups. • Breast cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among Latinas and the second leading cause among AfricanAmerican women, after lung cancer. • Of the 900 women in New York State expected to be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer this year, the incidence will be much'higher for Latinas than white females. "'• The cervical cancer mortality rate for African-American women .is more than twice that of white women, with older African-Americans at particular risk. "But when the women know that their risks can be reduced and that treatment is available, they will be less afraid" Ms. Rutter said. "We're hoping to convince women if they go for early detection and prompt treatment, that breast cancer is not a death sentence. "A very important aspect of this initiative is that we are not going to educate women and then let them fend for themselves," Ms. Benavides said. "We will make sure they can get all the tests and exams necessary at a price they can afford." Many Long Island women, she said, are unaware of available services. These include affordable complete gynecological care and care for sexually-transmitted

Non-surgical relief for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


re you one of the thousands of men and women suffering from the anguish of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Do you find it difficult to do even the simplest things, like buttoning your shirt, holding a milk carton or sleeping through the night without pain? Typically, symptoms of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome are pain and numbness in the fingers, hand and wrist. The pain may also radiate into the forearm. Left untreated, weakness in the hand . may become severe and disabling. We understand how severe Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be

and how it can affect your life. We offer an effective, painless alternative. Rather than surgically releasing the pressure on the involved nerve, we employ a series of treatments to painlessly stretch the wrist while using several procedures to reduce the swelling and tightness associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Once the pressure on the nerve is relieved, many patients experience significant relief, quickly. If you or someone you know is suffering, CALL FOR A FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION to find out if you can benefit from this painless treatment.

Cancer detection infections at the three PPNC health centers in Hempstead, Glen Cove and Massapequa and programs offered by the Nassau Health Care Corporation and local hospitals. Many women also are unaware that Planned Parenthood accepts insurance and Medic'aid, said Jan Figueira, PPNC's director of education. PPNC now also offers mammograms to all women 40 and over who have not had one in the past year for no out-of-pocket costs. "When women know they can get good care that they can afford, they are more likely to seek out care," Figueira said. At PPNC, she stressed, all services are bilingual and confidential. The . collaborative includes: The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program; AfricanAmerican Health Education and Development (AHEAD); The American Cancer Society; Cancer Care; Cancer Information Service The Maurer Foundation for Breast Health Education; Nassau Health Care Corporation Breast and Cervical Screening Program; North Shore University Hospital at Glen Cove, Family Practice Center; Planned Parenthood ofNassau County and Sisters Network. The group is offering a variety of educational programs in both Spanish and English at community-based organizations, including churches. And at the request of superintendents, principals or school nurses, educators will make presentation to young school girls. These programs will emphasize ways to reduce one's risk of cancer. The coalition hopes to recruit volunteers from the audience of adult programs to take training to become educators themselves, so the program can be expanded. "We are inviting schools, churches and other community-based groups to contact us. One phone call can save lives. Ifs that important," Rutter said. For more information, call Diana Benavides now at 750-2655.

Village defends accusations, releases one stack test <u



a BJ ffi H

from page 1

However, according to Mr. Lilker, both Mayor William Glacken and Village Attorney Joe Edwards have, at Village Board meetings, confirmed that there "was one successul bidder" and that the Village was "in negotiations with the bidder." Freeport Electric superintendent Hub Bianco said under oath at the January 9 Public Service Commission hearing, "We are in discussion with a potential developer." Mr. Edwards told The Leader that "under no circumstances has the village engaged in a 'collusive' bid nego-. tiation." He writes that the village hosted several energy.providers at the power plant site befofe'bids wer'e'puj to the public and has negotiated; wit!) LIPA with regard to possible power, purchasing agreements, projected interconnections costs and "related matters in the event a generation project is awarded." The Village Attorney also told the Leader that "The village, its consulting engineers, and outside counsel, Duncan, Weinberg, Genzer and Pembroke, Esqs. are presently engaged in a review of all submissions concerning the proposed generation at Power Plant 2. "At this time, no final recommenda-

tion has been made to the Village Board nor has a final determination been made by the Village Board." Lisa Feiner, to whom Mr. Lilker's letter was sent, has forwarded the letter to Mark Peters at the Public Integrity Division of the Attorney General's office in New York City.

Stack test results released Discovering the safety of Power Plant 2's emissions has also proven difficult for area residents eager to learn the truth about the existing power plant. On Monday, The Leader acquired the longawaited results of a stack test of Power Plant 2,'arid yet'cpnfirmed that other test results.have riot yet been made available to the-public.-. : , -performed on October 25 and 26 by Paul Taverha of ENSR International* the available tests measure visible opacity of emissions from Unit 9, Plant 1, and Unit 3 at Power Plant 2. The analysis states that the six-minute averages of opacity were "well within Freeport Electric's maximum opacity limit requirement of 20% for any six-minute period." Mark Lowery of the Department of Environmental Conservation described the data in the stack test to "have no enforcement value."

Mr. Edwards commented on the results, "The October 25 and 26 tests were...performed because the current New York Slate DEC Title V permit expresses a specific performance standard for opacity and also requires an annual compliance certification to be filed. This is the only performance criteria required to be tested by the Title V permit. Those late October tests were performed to enable the annual compliance certification to be completed. The opacity test was not intended to address any questions or concerns related to potential modification, of the Power Plant 2 Title V permit." •_ In order to meet standards for a new, revised permit, "The protocol has to be standardized," said Mr. Lowery. The tests conducted 'by ENSR only measured opacity, and not chemical content of the emissions in question. In particular, the DEC is concerned with emissions of "oxides of nitrogen and particulates" [soot] at the plant. Nor was the time at which the tests were conducted necessarily representative of what the normal operating conditions would be. "Assuming we can require a slack test and get a revised Title V permit," said Mr. Lowery, "the stack tests we approve will be designed to measure these compo'unds under normal operating condi-


The results of the other slack tests, according to Village Attorney Edwards, were "not required by any agency or permit, [and were] for the purpose of evaluating the performance of the diesel engines at Power Plant 2 under a variety of operating conditions. These tests will be used by Freeporl Electric to determine future policy with regard to these units. This evaluation is not complete and may require additional testing and a final decision has not been made."

Draft permit still unfinished Other aspects of the process have been stalled also. An issues conference originally scheduled for October 23 was changed to November 13 and then indefinitely delayed. According to Mr. Lowery, the "quantity and complexity" of the comments made at the October 22 public hearing al Freeport High School overwhelmed the DEC. As a result,.it agreed wilh the village lo ask the presiding judge to adjourn the con Terence so that the DEC could revise the draft permit. The draft permit is still being revised, said Mr. Lowery. "There has been news between LIPA and Ihe village. We're wailing to see il"an agreement will be made."

Changes The Freeport-Baldwin Leader, published by L&M Publications, has for some time been prepared at two locations, 30 South Ocean Avenue, Suite 204, Freeport, and 1840 Merrick Avenue, Merrick: At the end of this month, we plan to move our telephone service to the Merrick location. Callers may continue to dial 378-3133 but will reach us in Merrick. Our fax machine in Merrick will accept faxes from both 378-3139 and 378-0287. We will retain our post office box at P.O. 312, Freeport, and our email at However, we are slowly moving desks and other office equipment out of the premises at 30 South Ocean Avenue, Suite 204, Freeport. We plan to be finished by the end of January, and appreciate your patience. We will miss our neighbors in the building, but will still be by often. Hopefully, wherever you go to an important event in Freeport or Baldwin, the Leader, your community newspaper, will be there. If not, please give us a call and ask why not! Although we may be working out of a different location, our commitment to serving the people of Freeport and Baldwin remains as strong as ever.

Baldwin HS security

Santa Glaus speaks

To The Leader: In response to recent concerns about building security, we have made a number of adjustments to increase safety and prevent an ufisupervised situation. As we begin 2002, it is important to reflect on our school policies and procedures that are'in place to enable your child to leariv'and succeed. /Four additional video cameras have been installed between the front and back gyms in the hallways and stairwells outside the boys' and girls' locker rooms. Video monitors are located in the Deans' office. • A new "no lights off* system has been activated in the locker rooms. The lights will be continually lit unless the head custodian turns them off. • Buildings 3, 4, 5, and 6 will be locked on the weekends and secured by activated zone alarms, unless a special weekend activity/event is scheduled. • Our aides (hall monitors) have been reassigned to cover the locker rooms for the first and last ten minutes of each period. They are now sitting in or immediately outside the boys' and girls' locker rooms. • All teachers are monitoring the halls between classes. When we work as a team, we will be able to focus on education. Please remember that all students must carry their I.D. cards at all times. No walkmen, cell phones or beepers are allowed in the building. No hats or head coverings are permitted in classrooms, offices or assemblies. Our school will continue to provide an environment conducive to instruction and achievement. As always, your support will make a difference. PleaSe take a few moments to look in the Student Handbook and review our Code of Behavior with your child. Please encourage him or her to adhere to these rules and guidelines at all times. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me or one of the Assistant Principals at 377-9203.

To all the children and parents that came to visit me on weekends at my Atlantic Nursery House, I'd like to say that it was my pleasure to talk .to each and every one of you. I hope each of you received the one gift that you requested from me or a better one. Children of all ages, don't forget to thank your parents, relatives and friends for all the other special gifts that you have received from them. To those of you who asked for nothing for yourselves but Peace on Earth for all mankind, I pray also that it will happen in the near future. To others who said they have enough toys and to give toys they would receive to those who have little or none, I appreciate your thoughtfulness for others. Some of you requested that I help with the September 11 families. I will try with the help of others to do just that. To the over thirteen hundred who came at this time, "you have all made my day" with your many kind, funny and entertaining conversations. I heard some of you were visiting from New Jersey, Brooklyn, Queens, Connecticut, etc. The many letters from you youngsters took over three hours to read and to admire the many drawings. Unsigned was this child's funny note: "How does Santa do his gardening?" Below on this card that also had a lovely drawing was the answer, "With a Ho! Ho! Ho!" A keeper. To the grown-ups, I have a special message. Our world will be in very good hands after listening and talking to our youth of today who will be our adults'of tomorrow. God bless each and every one of them. I leave you with this message: Always keep the spirit of Christmas in your heart. Santa Claus

Pride for Youth gets grant, sets agenda Pride for Youth, a project of the Long Island Crisis Center, has announced that it has received a renewal grant from the Long Island Fund for Women and Girls. This funding will enable Pride for Youth to con(N tinue the work of the Young Women's r-' Creative Arts Group (YWCAG), which addresses the needs of lesbian and sj bisexual girls. YWCAG is open to all young women ages 13-20.

Lesbian and bisexual young womien are often confronted with the challenge of negotiating two types of oppression: sexism and homophobia. They have few social outlets and lack positive, supportive role models. The YWCAG provides a fun, supportive environment for girls to express their feelings and sort through the many pressures and conflicts they face. The YWCAG is co-facilitated by one

of Pride for Youth's social workers, Lara Bbwen, MSW and Liza Lomand, a youth participant. Together, they plan weekly discussions and related art projects on such topics as body image discrimination, the coming-out process, and sexuality. This year the group is adding a community service component to enhance the experience of the participants. These projects will not only enable the young

women to overcome isolation and build positive self-esteem but they will also be working to change the oppressive environment in which they live. The Young Women's Creative Arts Group meets weekly on Thursday from 6 -8 p.m. at Pride for Youth, 2050 Bellmore Avenue, Bellmore. Transportation is available by calling 679-9000. There is no charge to join the group and pizza is served.
