A Cleaner Community Emerges From America the Beautiful Campaign by Christian Sippel

BROWNIE TROOP 2249 OF MERRICK takes a break from cleaning up North Merrick Creek.


JIM GILLEN get started on a serious trash deposit.

At a choke point where the ponds in the Meadowbrook preserve flow under the Long Island Rail Road, John Scales! and Jim Gillen of Bellmore trudged down a litter-strewn path to inspect a veritable trash dam near the waterline. Like many of the marshes and ponds that dot our neighborhoods, they found that these waterways looked more like sinks.with clogged strainers than the picture postcards they can be. The trees and brush that might otherwise conceal the severity of this eyesore appeared almost out of place amid the layers of debris settling comfortably at their roots. Stemming and reversing the rising tide of pollution is a quality-of-life issue that has been crying out for a total effort by the community and a total commitment by our local and state governments. This past weekend, those cries were answered. "What we are seeing today is a historic event in our area. This is about building'bridges. Today, cooperation is better than competition," said a pleased Bob Young, the passionate leader of the America the Beautiful (continued on page 18)

safety tips The Freeport Police Department recommends the following tips for a safe Halloween: • Use make-up or face paint instead of masks, but if masks are used, make sure that they fit properly and have holes large enough for a mouth and eyes. • Take off your mask before you cross the street, crossing only at corners. • Choose costumes that are marked flame retardant.

• Wear light-colored clothing at night, short enough to prevent tripping. Add reflective tape or reflectors to dark colored costumes. • Make props such as magic wands and swords out of cardboard, rather than metal or wood. • Give and accept wrapped or packaged candy only. --,'"; • Have children bring treats home for an (continuecTon page 14)

llage fiears concerns on lawsuit against Freepor by Jim Golding Some residents at Monday's Village Board meeting voiced angry opinions in response to the federal lawsuit filed recently by stale Attorney General Eliot Spitzer against the village for unconstitutional and discriminatory housing inspections. The lawsuit, filed October 4 after an 18-month investigation, alleges that village housing inspectors violated constitutional "search and seizure" rules and anti-discrimination laws against Latino residents in conducting housing code inspections. •' '_ In defense of the village Building Department, Georgia Prunty said Freeport has a problem with overcrowded conditions in some residences and apartments caused by illegal aliens. "If it wasn't for them (the Building Department) we'd be so overrun with illegal aliens we wouldn't be able to breathe," she declared. Alan Jay was highly critical of the attorney general's action. "It is beneath contempt what that man is doing*" he said.'This village has probably done more for racial harmony than any other community on Long Island," Mr. Jay added, calling the lawsuit "a.pre-elec-

tion grab for votes." But Stewart Lilker took Freeport trustees to task, asking Mayor William F. Glacken repeatedly if they were prepared to fight the case "all the way to the (U.S.) Supreme Court." Both the mayor and Village Attorney Harrison J. Edwards dismissed the idea that Freeport would need to take the case to the nation's highest court, and stated emphatically that they would win the case. "If it goes higher it would be at the behest of the attorney general," said Mr. Edwards. Mr. Lilker suggested the trustees reconsider defending the lawsuit. "I think you're guilty," he said. "I've seen a lot of the evidence." The case would first be heard in federal district court in Islip. The attorney general has requested a jury trial. Several of the "close-down-the-dayworker-site" faction also showed up, restating their opposition to Freeport's financial support for the operation of the site.

The man behind our flag Newspaper people know the name of a newspaper, stretched across the top of the front page is called the "flag." Ours was designed by Danish artist Ole Hamann, inspired in the lettering across the side of a statue of the Danish king, Frederick V, which you can see if you ever visit Amalienborg Plaza at the royal palace in Copenhagen. A classically trained artist, Ole Hamann was on the staff at the United Nations for many years, designing many stamps and eventually becoming Postmaster General. His artwork included wonderful skyscraper scenes of New York City, as well as beautiful sea and pastoral scenes from his native Denmark. Once you viewed the world through his eyes, it became more beautiful. Ole Hamann was also a longtime friend of the Laursen and Toscano families. From our childhood, we can remember him guiding us and his- daughter, Kristine, kindly, gently and patiently through the world of crayons, watercolors and, eventually oils. Children are great judges of character, and I can also never forget how quickly my grandson, Luis, warmed to Ole Hamann'on a recent visit. He was the kind of man everyone instantly likes. He and his wife, Bente, also a talented artist, have many friends among so many concentric and overlapping circles of people of all interests and styles. Ole Hamann died last week. I would like to think that some of his spirit will shine through to each of our readers as they lift up their hometown newspapers each week. At least, that is a noble goal.

cflflVf ft There is so much out there to be afraid of, snipers, anthrax, war, that you could ask what do we need Halloween for? This year, some parents will substitute organized parties for trick and treating; others will supervise with extra care, only letting their children visit those they know. It is a school night, so that should help cut down on any mischief. So what do we need Halloween for? To pretend to be afraid of something we know is not real. For small fry, to pretend to frighten one of those big people that often scare you. Halloween gives us a sense of empowerment in a scary world. And that is okay as long as no one gets hurt. So, please, have~a safe and happy Halloween!

NETWORKING...Sometimes people leave community meetings depressed with the feeling that everyone is spinning their wheels. That was definitely not the case at the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce's October meeting. Instead, the room buzzed with convex sation and reaction as people listened to updates on scheduled activities and reports on new initatives to improve Baldwin. During the last five years, the Baldwin Chamber has undergone a steady evolution. There was a point when the organization was practically defunct. Then, Ginny Foley accepted the presidency and slowly the group began its turnaround. A great part of that progress is directly due to Mrs. Foley, who doesn't seek personal glory and who is most welcoming of new ideas and participation. After getting its own house in order, the Chamber began reaching outward. Now the organization and the community are beginning to see the results of this networking. Projects have been completed, seasonal activities are wellestablished and the treasury has funds for new initiatives. Governmental entities recognize that the Baldwin community can muster a voice. This was evidenced in the impetus the Chamber provided to make the first phase of the Town of Hempstead's facade improvement project happen as well as the input a Chamber committee provided to make certain that the LIRR project was one that was attractive as well as functional. Most importantly, however, in a hamlet without local government, the Chamber has become the means by

„,, ,, ,„


fn '~j\


which people can meet, learn about each other and work together. At the October meeting, two residents presented new ideas which the Chamber is seriously considering supporting. Cathy Onkle, who spoke about a cleaning and maintenance project along the main thoroughfares, is an active member of the Beautiful Baldwin Foundation. Another resident provided information about the possibility of the Chamber •organizing a Farmers' Market. Other active Chamber members are also members of Kiwanis and Rotary as well as the Baldwin Community Association. These dual memberships encourage communication. There were two representatives from the school district speaking about the partnership that exists between the business community and schools and suggesting ways to improve that partnership. Kevin Kamen was present. He is the

. President of the Baldwin Library Board as well as Chief of the Baldwin Auxiliary Police. Claudia Rotondo, the Executive Director of the Baldwin Council Against Drug Abuse, was also present. Both of them spoke of the recent Community Softball Game, presented a check to the Chamber and announced the unanimous decision of that event's committee to "do it again" next year. Informal conversation made it clear that people who hadn't known each other previously met for the first time and enjoyed working together on this project. The Chamber's executive board, chairpeople of specific events, and individual members are working hard and reaching out far beyond the narrow focus of business to improve the Baldwin community. Vice President Doris Duffy noted that people should remember, however, that projects which can bring about positive change often

require lots of behind-the-scenes study and effort before the results are obvious to the community. Clearly the Chamber is becoming a strong force in Baldwin. It is providing a voice for many people, a place where ideas can be shared and efforts can be coordinated. Community members should remember however, that (he Chamber consists of volunteers. Their work, their lime, 'and their energies-are not without limit. After all, they all do have a "day job." We urge readers to support local businesses, particularly those which give back to the community through participation in the Chamber. And we also suggest that residents encourage those businesses they frequent, which are not already Chamber members, to join and to help participate in the reviializalion that is happening in town. The momentum is building.

Baldwin Chamber gains momentum by Joan Delaney The October meeting of the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce evidenced growing vitality and momentum in the participation of new members, the continuation of previously successful activities and the planning of new initiatives. Cathy Onkle updated members on a cleaning and maintenance project along the main thoroughfares of the community in order to create a "polished look." Details of the cost and specifics of the scale of the project are being worked out but the Chamber is.receptive to the idea.

Another resident, Jane Vaughn, outlined ongoing research into the possibility of sponsoring a Farmers' Market in Baldwin from June through November. She described such projects in other communities and Chamber Vice President Doris Duffy noted that a Farmers' Market could be one way to attract outsiders to Baldwin. Distributing flyers about restaurants and retail businesses, particularly Baldwin's many antique shops, at the Farmers' Market could be one vehicle to revitalize the business community. She indicated that the Chamber is interviewing marketing

companies in preparation for deciding on a definitive plan to market Baldwin to outsiders and to attract new upscale businesses. Kevin Kamen, the originator of the idea to hold a Community Softball Game, and Baldwin Council Against Drug Abuse Executive Director Claudia Rotondo, who served on the committee, presented the Chamber its. share of the monies raised from the successful event. The Chamber's money will be earmarked for marketing Baldwin. Later in the meeting, Ms. Rotondo (continued on page 18)

The Red Devils are ranked 7th in the state while the Bruins are ranked 9th. Newsday has Freeport ranked 3rd and Baldwin 4th. The outcome of the game will definitely fi affect the first place position in Conference 1. back Steve Barrett opened ItheRunning scoring with a 30 yard pass to Junaid W Hamin-Gilliam on a trick play. He later ran for a touchdown and accumulated 130 yards rushing. Erick Reitmayr scored on a 4-yard pass from Randy Mills.

Freeport's defense will be tested again next week. The action was on court 4. New Hyde Park's Girls Varsity Tennis Team lined one side of the court and the Lady Devils were on the other side. Playoff points were 3-3 as the fourth doubles were to determine the outcome under the lights at Cow Meadow Park. Cassandra Brisson and Lauren Aiken lost the first set 7-6 (9-7) in a tough tiebreaker. Both girls knew that the playoff hopes depended on a win on their court. Nervous but determined, both girls showed what makes a true athletic team. Talking to each other, listening to coaching techniques, absorbing the encouragement of their teammates, the girls won the second set 6-2. The all important third set was finally Freeport's as Brisson and Aiken carefully :placed some very strategic points to secure a 63 win at 7:55 p.m. First singles "Samantha Sepulveda won her point 7-5, 6-4. First doubles Lauren Triplet! and Adriana Rivera dominated their 6-3, 6-4 match while second doubles Whitney Lee and Ife Blissett were forced to a third set before they won 6-7 (7-5), 6-0, and 6-3.

Freeport teachers never stop learning Freeport teachers are better prepared than ever to focus on the district's goal to improve student performance in English Language Arts and Math. This summer seven of Freeport's Master Teachers were involved in a professional development program to strengthen their teaching skills in reading and mathematics. These teachers will then go on to train other Freeport teachers and staff members to use the methods they learned - a concept known as "turn key teaching." Echele Roberts of Bayview Avenue School studied Reading Instruction. Robbi Berry of Caroline G. Atkinson School studied Reading Comprehension

Teachers participated as part of a collaboration between the Freeporl School District and Freeport Teachers Association. "We're all very excited about sharing this new knowledge with our fellow teachers," says Joyce Fischer. "With five new teacher trainers in mathematics and two in reading, we are on the right path for improving test scores in these two vital subjects."

FIRST GRADE TEACHER JOYCE FISCHER (left) will be using new technique learned in a "Thinking Mathematics" program - to teach her students at Leo F. Giblyn School. She is one of seven Freeport teachers who participated in training to strengthen teaching skills in reading and math. Teaching assistant Barbara Goldman (right) will also benefit from Ms. Fischer's training. She and the six teachers that she trained with will "turn key teach" the skills they learned to other educators in the district.

Gypsy Renaissance: more t&aii a by Al Handley

masks, reeogni/ed by historians as being among the earliest phenomena created by man. allow us to reveal or hide our line nature, shape our destiny and indulge our fantasies. Masks are tools to gain access to the dreamtime of the unconscious mind. After moving to Long Beach during the 1980s she founded the Spirit Art studio, guided by the premise that art should encompass the spirituality of the individual: that the art objects a person possesses are totems of the spirit and have specific meaning to that person's life. This is strongly in the tradition of Native American culture, which'Ms. Seepo has Studied... seriously for many years. The: artist's eclectic nature, however. ;has provided that her-.masks ,p«r(ray a flamboyant .gaiety and exuberance in a-traditional and familiar sense, particularly appropriate for such events as Halloween Masquerade balls and Mardi Gras. The complete collection of her masks can be seen by visiting her website,, where she plans on adding an Gift Boutique section soon after Halloween, which will offer a variety of rare and exquisite items hand-crafted by Ms. Seepo and a number of her close associates. Like most people in business these days, Ms. Seepo is feeling the financial pinch of the current business recession. "Our lives just haveivl been the same since the disaster of 9-11," she says. adding that it seems that the entire art community has been adversely affected by recent events. "Even though business has improved this year, people are only slowly regaining their enthusiasm for celebration." The artist feels that this reticence is an impediment to regaining our full sense of security, since she equates celebration with reaffirmation of the spirit. "Life is always a balance of joy and sorrow and it should be possible for us to express our joy without losing sight of the sorrow we all feel for the loss we have suffered. If we allow ourselves to become as dour and rigid as-these terrorists seem to be then they will truly have beaten us." If we would take the advice of this sage artist, we should get out there and celebrate to our hearts' content and let our spirits soar.

Alexis Seepo has been ;; producing top quality feather and sequin masks for the last 27 years. Although each mask is hand made, her company, Gypsy Renaissance, has been supplying numerous upscale retail outlets around the country, as well as providing "decoration and custom .masks for major events 'arid theatrical productions. Her client list includes American Express, Bellagio Hotel-Las Vegas, Big Apple Circus, Busch Gardens, Chase Manhattan, Cirque Du Soleil, Disneyland, Donald Trump, Fantasy Fest- Key West, Fox woods Resort & Casino, Gordon Getty, L'Oreal, Mardi Gras-New Orleans, MGM, Mirage Hotel-Las Vegas, Pierre Cardin, Sex and the City, Sun Trust Bank and Universal Studios. Ms. Seepo began her mask making in San Francisco during the 1970s where she was involved with the art and pop culture that evolved out of the 1960s HaightAshbury era. She still maintains close relationships with other visionaries of those times as David Singer, who designed the Gypsy Renaissance logo, as well as the majority of posters for the Bill Graham Fillmore shows on both coasts. Her close involvement in that epic of artistic flourish, as well as her extensive travels to remote parts of the world studying the mysticism of various indigenous cultures, has resulted in an astonishing collection of mask designs that are the culmination of a lifetime of experience. She believes that

Baldwinite receives medal for service in Korean War 0)

by Joan Delaney

"I'm no hero, just a guy who was drafted," explained Sanford (Sandy) Meyers of Baldwin, a recipient of the Korean War Service Medal presented by Senator Charles Fuschillo at a ceremony on October 9, at the American Air Power o Museum in Farmingdale, that included O 14 other veterans. 03 The award is being offered by the government of South Korea to eligible 1 =3 servicemen and women who performed duties during the Korean War. The pro06 ject is being coordinated by the United W States Air Force. Q Mr. Meyers served in the U.S. Army. < W "I put my 22 months in," he noted, saying that as a college junior, he chose not to take the Princeton exam, which could H have gotten him deferred. He completed eight weeks of basic training at Camp Atturbury in Indiana, went home for a week, and then took a train to California. After a few days he was shipped out on a boat which took fifteen days to reach Korea. He landed

with the 24th Division in Mason, Korea. "I was the most ill-prepared soldier this country ever had," said Mr. Meyers, who rose from the rank of Private to Corporal during.his time of service. "I never had to fire a gun; I never had to fight in battle," he said as he described the assignments he was given. "I taught English and math to GIs. I did my share of jobs - KP and guard duty." But because morale was low, the army sponsored a series of sports competitions. "I was a jock and I wound up playing baseball, football and basketball for the division teams." Mr. Meyers spent 17 months in Korea and five months in Japan. Among the fellow soldiers he met, many did not come back. "A lot of guys were blown up by land mines. Many guys I knew fought but never came back." Describing his thoughts about Korea, Mr. Meyers said that the medal he received was the first public recognition he was aware of for veterans of that conflict. "It's not even considered a war," he said, "It was a police action."

Statistics show that the Korean conflict lasted from June 15, 1950 until July 27, 1953. There were 54,230 who died, 103,000 wounded and 8,177 who were missing in action. There were 7,000 prisoners of war and 3,450 returned alive. Fifty-one percent of the prisoners of war died in prison camps and there are still 389 unaccounted for. Referring to the aftermath of the conflict, Mr. Meyers said, "All these years I resented that nothing was done for the Korean vets. It was like it never happened." But Mr. Meyers doesn't regret the time he spent in the military. He said at

the ceremony with Senator Fuschillo, he spoke to. other veterans whom he had never met before, "We spoke about our service. They are all great guys." Referring to the present world situation and the possibility of war with Iraq, Mr. Meyers grimaced. "War really is terrible; it really is hell. We are a great country but I really hope that there has got to be a better way." Mr. Meyers and his wife Micki have been married for 45 years. They are the parents of three children - Jayne, Mark and Greg and the grandparents of three youngsters? Leah, Aaron and Jessica.

Tremendous Selection To Choose From!

Power Plant 2 permits pass Army Corps of Engineers The Village of Freeport Electric Department has received environmental approvals from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that advance the progress of the Power Plant 2 Generation Projects leading to construction of both the village and PPL combustion turbines. The permits granted under the Nationwide Permit program authorize construction of the projects and their ancillary facilities in areas under Corps of Engineers jurisdiction. These facilities include the acoustic abatement wall on the shoreline site, as well as the offsite installation of an underground electrical transmission line between the project site and the LIPA Meadowbrook switching station, and the natural gas pipeline from the KeySpan facility near Babylon Turnpike to the proposed project. "Freeport Electric is pleased that the proposed generation projects at Power Plant 2 are advancing through the environmental permitting processes. Each approval moves us closer to start of construction so that the Village and PPL facilities may be on line next summer to serve the electric needs of the Village and Long Island community, respectively," stated Hubert Bianco, Superintendent of Electric Utilities. "Receiving the Corps of Engineers approvals in this timely manner following submittal speaks to the thought and attention given to design and environ-

mental aspects of this project," continued Barbara Jefferies, Sr. Program Manager for ENSR International, the village's independent environmental and permitting consultant for this project. The key permit conditions included by the Corps of Engineers require construction measures to prevent materials or debris from entering the adjacent waterways. The conditions to the Corps of Engineers approval also require compliance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) regulations. Applications have already been filed with NYSDEC and are progressing through that regulatory process. "Recognizing the regional importance of new energy resource development, NYSDEC staff have been working in a very cooperative and timely fashion in reviewing the village applications," Ms. Jefferies added. "We anticipate state permit approvals in the time frame to allow construction of the village facility for summer 2003 operations." "Each environmental permit approval should affirm that the projects developed and implemented not only serve the electric needs of the Village of Freeport and Long Island," concluded Mr. Bianco, "it also protects the environmental quality and health and safety of Freeport and neighboring communities."

County executive signs legislation giving consideration to minority owned business On Thursday, October 10, Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi signed into law a bill recently passed by the legislature. The bill is a local law to ensure equal opportunity hiring for jobs created by county contracts and to promote the employment of members of minority communities for positions funded by county contracts. Legislator Kevan Abrahams sponsored the bill in the legislature, and invited guests for the ceremony included members of the Nassau County Office of Minority Affairs and other representatives from the county's minority communities. "This bill will help the county take a

critical step forward regarding minority hiring," said the County Executive. "Equal opportunity is an inherent right guaranteed in our constitution and we must, as elected officials, do whatever is necessary to protect and promote that right." "I believe that Nassau County must take the lead to encourage minority and women-owned businesses to participate in contracts. Every member of a community must feel included in the bidding process," said Legislator Abrahams. A similar bill was sponsored by former county legislator Patrick Williams before his resignation.

Freeport community can look back with satisfaction and relief for its reduced use of energy during recent heat waves and seasonal periods of peak demand. Although Freeport residences and businesses, like those across Long Island and throughout the NY metro region used more electricity this summer than last, Freeport consumers conserved electricity during heat waves and traditional peak periods. During the summer months of June, July and Augus.1, peak use of electricity was lower than last year. For the summer months of June through August, total electricity consumption grew from 73057 MW in 2000 to 77347 MW in 2001 to 80001 MW in 2002. This represents an approximate increase in energy usage of 10 percent over this two-year period. Despite the generally growing demand for overall energy, with attention to consumption, Freeport customers lowered their highest daily peak demand from 59.1 MW last summer to 58.2 MW this summer. Reduced energy consumption in the community not only contributed to the smooth operations of the utility, but also preserved the comfort and economic well-being of the community. The reduced peak demand periods ensured the reliability of the Village's electricity supply, prevented potential brownouts or blackouts. Achieving reductions in peak usage ensured that industrial and business activities were not interrupted, and that health impaired individuals, our elderly, and those with respiratory or other chronic illness, were able to utilize durable medical equipment or air conditioning without interruption. Freeport Electric is well situated to meet the overall power needs of its residents, businesses and industries from a variety of sources, including hydro-electric power supplied by NYPA, on-site generation at Power Plant 1 and the gas turbine at Power Plant 2, and purchase of electricity from the wholesale energy market. As always, the price of generation compared to the cost of purchasing electricity

O an> â&#x20AC;&#x201D;i

s he

drives the selection of in-Village generation versus purchasing electricity from the market place. This summer the new LIPA / Village agreement was' initiated, under which.the Village purchases energy from LIPA at a fixed cost regardless of market conditions. This agreement insured a reliable energy supply during the peak summer period and some price stability for our customers. This agreement not only provided the environmental assurances desired by Freeport and its neighbors during summer months when enjoyment of our shoreline and out-ofdoors environment is paramount, but enabled the village to manage the overall cost of electricity responsibly. During peak use days in July and August, Freeport could have faced electricity costs as high as $900/MW. Utilizing the mix of hydroelectric energy from NYPA, generation at Village facilities and LIPA supplied power stabilized the cost of electricity far below market rates. While the source and cost of electricity supplied is a significant concern of Freeport Electric for its customers, so is the electric distribution system or delivery system that carries electricity to each residential, commercial and industrial threshold. Diligence of utility personnel, before and throughout the summer paid off, and this summer we. experienced minimal interruptions to our customers. The Freeport Electric system reflects the spirit and the attributes of customer ownership. The success of Freeport Electric's customers in reducing peak demand, routine awareness of our customers' part in the Village's electric supply system, and efforts of our staff and crews paid off, as the success of this summer shows. We thank the crews and staff of Freeport Electric, and every customer within the Village for a great summer.

safety tips from page 2 adult inspector before they are eaten: • Parents or an older brother or sister should accompany small and elementary school age children when they are trick-or-treating and send older children in groups. Never travel alone. • Go out in daylight and carry a flashlight in case of delay. • Have children stay within the neighborhood; only, visit homes you know. • Plan your trick-or-treat route, includ-

ing only streets that are well lit, and give the route to your family members. • Wait until you get home with your family to sort, check and eat your treats. • If there is no sidewalk, walk facing traffic. • Do not approach or talk to strangers. 0 Report all suspicious person(s) or occupied vehicles to the police. • Keep costumed children away from pets. The pet may not recognize the child and become frightened. -Michael E. Woodward, Chief of Police

This was America the Beautiful weekend in the Town of Hempstead and the cooperative spirit underlying Bob's high hopes for the multi-site cleanup project was evident everywhere. At various staging areas, state and local politicians such as Angie Cullin, fifth District Councilwoman, mixed with a diverse group of enthusiastic volunteers as representatives of the parks and recreation department registered everyone and handed out heavy gloves. Municipal buses then shuttled the volunteers over to the targeted locations, and apparently, not a moment too soon. Hardly a patch of ground appeared to have escaped the unseemly buildup of trash. In just a few minutes, volunteers had filled large, heavy-duty orange bags with every sort of trash and debris imaginable. Some spots resembled a landfill and the cleanup required more equipment and muscle than gloves and a strong back. ' In one area that had no doubt become a makeshift campground, Senator Charles Fuschillo found an old couch that needed to be moved. After teaming with another volunteer to pull the infested sofa out Of the woods, Senator Fuschillo lifted it into one of the many trucks that the state Department of Transportation had on hand for the cleanup. Other politicians were also on hand, but most if not all were there to roll up their sleeves and load trash bags rather than to shake hands and pose for photos. The reliable services of the various scouting organizations in our community can always be counted on for help with these sorts 'of. projects, and the America the Beautiful cleanup was no exception. Leading Den 8 from Cub pack 206 from North Merrick was Mary Jo Otto. She and her Cub Scouts were tackling the trash in the east and west ponds of the Meadowbrook Preserve. "The kids always have community pro-

Baldwin chamber from page 5 passed around form letters to members urging them to write to County Executive Thomas Suozzi concerning budget cuts which would adversely affect the "network of services" provided by agencies that help residents. The letter said that "Some things are dispensable in this county. Drug and alcohol treatment, education, and prevention are not. Programs that service youth and families are not. Mental health services are not. In short our children, our families and our quality of life are not, nor will they ever be, dispensable." Board member Kathy' Healy Englehardt updated members about the October 26, annual Pumpkin Run at Baldwin Park. The children's Fun Run will begin at 10 a.m. followed by the professionally organized 5K race for runners of all ages. There will be awards and prizes in a series of categories. Those interested in registering may check the Chamber's web site at www. Baldwin Senior High School teacher Pat Banhazl and Assistant Principal Richard Miskiewicz spoke about the partnership that exists between the school and business community. Chamber President Ginny Foley noted the tremendous assistance of the students in creating posters as well as providing practical help at the Chamber's events.

jects to work on and this is a great way for them to learn about environmental issues at the same time," said Ms. Otto as she filled her orange trash bag. At North Merrick Creek, Brownie troops 2249 and 2492 joined forces with organizers Sue Bruno and Nancy Ramo to remove the trash that fills the woods surrounding this area of the Meadowbrook Parkway. On hand to help the ladies haul their overflowing bags out of the woods were Joe Carini and Matt Darnaud from the North Merrick branch of the New York State Department of Transportation. It was teamwork and cooperation like this that made this weekend's America the Beautiful campaign a success while also helping to establish a framework for future projects. "This is just the beginning of what will be a total effort to devise a plan to make sure that this situation doesn't happen again," said Senator Fuschillo. Bob Young couldn't have been happier about the. many positives that he saw coming from the first of many initiatives his America the Beautiful group plans going forward. "A lot of bridges were built that never existed before this project. This has been a historic melding of groups that put politics behind them to tackle a severe problem," said Bob. With local civic groups working with political leaders while utilizing the vast resources of state and local governments, the America the Beautiful campaign has turned into a blueprint for positive politics in action; an effort that has not gone unnoticed outside of our area. Bob mentioned that other townships have already been in touch with him asking for help with similar projects. This is a good sign, and one that probably means that the America the Beautiful environmental group will be around for a while^ helping to build the coalition necessary to tackle what might be one of Long Island's most pressing problems.

momentum The high school is looking for additional participation by business people on the school district's School to Career advisory committee as well as by acting as mentors or. allowing their workplace to be used for shadow day activities or intern opportunities so that students can learn first-hand about careers and necessary job skills. The next School to Career Advisory Committee breakfast meeting will take place at the high .school library on October 29, at 8 a.m. Planning is also underway for the Chamber's Holiday Celebration, which is scheduled for Sunday, December 8, this year instead of on a Saturday as in previous years. The celebration includes refreshments, entertainment, and the lighting of the community Christmas tree and menorah. The Chamber contacted Baldwin's Interfaith Council regarding this activity. Ms. Ellen Dunn from the New York State Consumer Protection Board gave an overview of the many types of assistance that agency provides. Particular emphasis was on the "Do Not Call" Registry and complaint process, lemon laws, phone slamming, identity theft, product or contractor complaints, and credit ratings. Those interested in receiving any of the agency's brochures or information about the agency's services may check their web site,, or call the Long Island region number at 470-2954.
