MOTHER OF THE YEAR Debra Mule with Husband Steven and daughters Elizabeth and Victoria Rose.

My wife Debra is the most talented, intelligent, well-motivated person I know. Since 1990 she has been fully involved in the community and dedicated to its improvement. She is a past president of Columbus Avenue PTA and current treasurer of District PTA Council. Debra's love of music permeates her whole life and she generously shares her gifts with the community as Director of youth choir at Our Holy Redeemer Church and as a guitar instructor at Freeport Recreation Center. She also sings with Gilbert and Sullivan Light Opera Company of Long Island. She takes our girls to the library and Girl Scout meetings every week. Despite her busy schedule Debra still finds time to volunteer at the* local soup kitchen, preparing and distributing meals. She provides a great example to our children of a well-rounded person. My daughters and I are fortunate to have her in our lives. Steven Mule

Environmental concerns at B by Laraine A. Milazzo Last month Freeport school officials learned of an oil spill near the Bayview Avenue School in a most unorthodox manner. According to a letter sent to parents by School Superintendent Eric L. Eversley, a Channel 2 News crew was observed at the school on April 17. Through an ensuing investigation Dr. Eversley learned that there had been an oil spill at the Sunoco station at the corner of Merrick Road and Bayview Avenue back in 1987. Further inquiries revealed that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) had opened a case file on the matter in 1987. Additionally, the DEC opened a case file in May 2001 regarding the Mobil station at the same intersection. In his letter dated April 22, Dr. Eversley assured parents that "the district will not compromise .the safety of our students, staff and visitors." To that end, Dr. Eversley said that an independent environmental consulting firm had been hired to test air samples at the school. In

a letter dated May 9, Dr. Eversley wrote that "the sample analysis found no petroleum components in the building." Dr. Eversley added that there was a "low concentration of one substance well below the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) median database standard for homes that have not been exposed to petroleum spill. Sue Morgan of the School Public Relations Service for the Freeport Public Schools said that the school does not "use ground water for drinking, cooking or cleaning." Regarding the Sunoco site, Ms. Morgan said that the DEC had "initiated a clean-up protocol and established monitoring stations" in or about 1987. A new testing ,system was begun around 1999 with samplings taken three to four times weekly. A phone call to Bill Fonda of the DEC confirmed testing is continuing at the spill sites. Mr. Fonda also confirmed that the information gathered had been referred to the New York State Health Department. Mr. Fonda said that though a report from the Mobil Station was

At^heir own expense, the Sunoco Station will install soil vapor monitoring wells on school property "under the supervision of the DEC," said Dr. Eversley. In his May 9 letter to parents Dr. Eversley said that although construction of the addition to the Bayview Avenue School had been initially delayed, groundbreaking has begun. Dr. Eversley confirmed that "organic vapor testing was done during excavation and no organic vapors were detected." Dr. Eversley concluded his letter by saying, "Please know that we will continue to keep you informed as substantive information is available."

Mr. Fonda said that the DEC could "potentially" conduct an investigation and cleanup at the site with costs ultimately paid by the owner. Claire Pospisil of the State Health Department said that the DEC had been working with the Health Department. According to Ms. Pospisil, tests showed the indoor air quality at the school to be "typical" air quality anywhere. Ms. Pospisil said that there were no concerns about "air quality" at the school.

Freeporters go to the polls May 21 Taken from an article by Jason Gcrs appearing in the Leader of April 25. On Tuesday, May 21, Freeporlers will go lo (he polls lo elect two trustees to the Board of Education, to occupy the seats currently held by Ronald Ellerbe and John Muscara. The five candidates are Donald Clarke, incumbent Ellerbe, Carmen Pineyro, Dr. Albert Renken and Bernard Smith. The school and library budgets will also be voted upon. The early "bare bones" budget passed by the state legisture last year came with promises for more school funding lo come. However, the six-months late budget, with legislators coping with the aftermath of September I I , fulfilled no

such promise. This year, Freeport came $2.3 million short in state aid. Although under last year's state aid formulas, Freeport would have received an additional $1.4 million in aid, in fact saw a $16,258 decrease. After seven weeks of discussion and $2.1 million in difficult program and capital improvements cuts, Freeport's revised proposed budget calls for a 7.3% increase ' in expenditures, from $91,764,288 to $98,418,384. This $6.65 million increase in expenditures, combined with a $1.28 million decrease in revenues, combine for a requested $7.93 million increase in the tax levy. The majority of the increase is a result of the debt payment on the new construction projects, loss of assessed value and loss

of state aid. One other significant increase in the budget is an additional $625,975 for health insurance. Included in the budget are appropriations for 30 new staff members. Six of these staffers (for reading and ESL) were formerly paid for through grants. Included in the staff are four Middle School reading specialists to help boost performance on the state's eighth-grade English assessment. The increase also includes six custodians, five of which are attributed to the 160,000 square-foot increase in the amount of space in the district, between the new New Visions and in the High School. After seven painful weeks of expenditure-cutting, the revised proposed average tax rate increase (which is an aver-

09

age of all four property classes) is 17.9%, down from the originally-proposed 21.7%. 1.3% of this increase is in response to the decrease in assessed valuation of Freeporfs property. The increase amounts to $10.84 per $100 of assessed value. For an average home assessed at $5,700, the increase is $618. STAR exemptions will refund approximately $900 of the total tax bill to every home owner and $ 1600 for seniors with the enhanced STAR. At press time it was as yet unclear what the effect of the recently agreedupon state budget would be on the tax rate. Freeport Assistant Superinendent for Business Kishore Kuncham told The Leader that although the increase in (continued on page 27)

rounder bout KIWANIS HONORS GERHAUSER: On May 1 the Freeport Kiwanis honored popular Joseph Gerhauser as "The Kiwanian of the 20th Century" at Bedell's West Wind Restaurant. As a true Kiwanian, Joe has dedicated himself for 47 years of community service to the Freeport Kiwanis Club, Freeport Chamber of Commerce, the Salvation Army, his church and his family. He is Past Deacon and Elder at the First Presbyterian Church of Freeport and on the Freeport and Nassau County Board of the Salvation Army. Joe is also Past President of the German Shepherd Dog Club of Long Island, and helped form the K-9 Corps for the Freeport Police Department. Though he now lives in North Bellmore, he spends most of his free time in our village working with the dozen different organizations he belongs to, and being a loyal friend to all who know him. Mr. Gerhauser appears here with wife Helen (left) and daughter Leslie. Photo by Bill & Normo Braun

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

In the nick of time Do you remember a time when it seemed "everyone on Long Island" was working for Grumman Aviation? Few do anymore, and that was the inspiration for writer Laura Schofer to interview local residents who had a part in Long Island's aviation history. Often, she arrived at the door just a little too late, for death or illness had made their appearance first. That made the interviews she was able to complete so much more precious. The more she learned about how many cooperated to put men on the Moon, the more she marveled at the miracle, and the more she wondered why such energies and talents could not be harnessed to solve the problems here on earth. As the new, improved Cradle of Aviation Museum opens this month, next to the new Long Island Children's Museum, this area will become a major tourist site. Surely, future generations will be inspired by what happened here. They will travel places we cannot even dream of. But our hope is they will also look to solving the problems of poverty and hunger that plague the world today.

At the May 8 Baldwin Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Kathy Weiss announced the appointment of three new administrators. Bernice Acevedo will be the new principal of Lenox School, replacing Gary Griggs, who is retiring. Linda Anthony will be the new assistant principal at Baldwin Middle School, replacing Howard Landman, who is retiring and Michelle Pietrafesa will be Assistant Director of Pupil Services, replacing Lou Fernandez, who is also retiring.

The district has performed these speed drills in the past, in which a specific emergency condition is simulated with the district having to

respond appropriately. In the past a simulated airplane crash into Meadow School was simulated. In this way, the district is able to fine tune its overall emergency response procedures. The drill will be held sometime in late May or early June. At the initial portion of the board meeting, the Board of Education honored students, in the categories of academic excellence, sports and music and fine arts. They included valedictorian David Letzler and salutatorian Jennifer Wong along with, scholars Kelly^, Aliano, Taylor Altman, Jed Bataille, Spencer Berg, Rachel Dominique, Steven Floman, Brian Forsberg, Erikk Geannikis, Heather Kugelmass, Carla Laroche, Christine Mazzarino, Caitlin Murphy, Lee Pepper, Kandace Reece, David Weston and Gregory Witkin.

However, their game against Manhassel was played before the TV cameras on Saturday and televised on Sunday. Freeport was down 8-4 at the end of the first half when Coach Diane Wahlers made some defensive changes at half. The Lady Devils came back strong and even went ahead until Munhasscl scored with just 2:03 left in the game. Goalie Marcella Calladonio made four point-blank saves in (he final two minutes for Freeport to preserve the lie. Calladonio is a four-year starter in the goal cage. She has 456 career saves lo date. She is an honors student who will he attending Columbia University on an academic scholarship in September. Marrisa Trachtenberg, a four-year starter, 'scored four goals lo increase her career

goals to 75. She-is a powerful crease player who will be playing lacrosse at Stony Brook University next year. Jessica Seifert is only a sophomore but is a three-year starter who scored three goals while midHeld junior Samantha Sepulveda added two. Sepulveda has been playing varsity since 8th grade and earned All County Honors as a sophomore. She will be playing on the Long Island Elite Lacrosse Club Team this summer. Elizabeth Jeffries and Shanon Morris each added a goal to complete the offensive efforts. Jeffries is a scholar/athlete as well as a starter on three varsity sports. Morris is a junior honors student who volunteers as a coach for the PAL program in town. Maggie Gorry was moved from midfield to low defense last year and is responsible for marking the best opposing player. "She has played excellent defense all season," reflected Coach Wahlers. "We are also pleased to announce that Lisa Colonna, a live year starter and team-leading scorer for

three years, will continue her playing career at Old Dominion University next year while teammate Erica Ryan will play at Stonehill College next spring. Ryan is graduating fifth in the senior class. George Washington University will be the next stop for low defensive player Viviana Smith who was recently named Student of the Month and is graduating ninth in her class. "Our seniors offer so. much experience to the younger players. We will really miss our graduating seniors," commented Assistant Coach Arthur Retzlaff. "They have been true leaders on the playing field as well as in the classroom. They are the major reason we were named a Scholar/Athlete Team last year. Hopefully we will be able to repeat that honor again this-year." The Lady Devils scored twelve of their fourteen goals in the first half as Freeport trounced Mineola 14-4. Trachenberg scored four goals while Sepulveda, Berberena, and Seifert each scored two. Colonna, Ryan, Morris and Gorry each

added one to complete the Lady Devils scoring attack.

Toval took the first singles point in a grueling three set match 11-1,911, 11-8 while Edward and Quelix won in straight sets. First doubles Melissa Mischke and MelissaSinghtook the decisive point with their exciting 15:10, 11-15, 18-14 victory. Excellent net play made the difference in the match.

The new 2002 Bulletin on Lyme Disease and Other Tick-Related Illnesses is now available free from the Nassau County Department of Health. Lyme disease is now the most prevalent tick-borne illness in our area. It is an infection that can cause arthritic, heart and nervous system problems. An early symptom of Lyme disease may be a discrete circular or oval rash (erythema migrans) that may continue to expand or spread: Other early symptoms include fatigue, chills and fever, headache, muscle and

joint pains and swollen lymph nodes. Because Lyme disease is often difficult to diagnose, and often produces variable symptoms, it is important to consult your doctor as soon as possible. To help prevent Lyme and other tick-related illnesses, try to stay out of tick-infested areas. If one does go into tick areas: • Dress appropriately. • Use repellents as appropriate. • Check for ticks on clothing and pets. After returning home, remember to

conduct full-body checks for ticks. The 4-page Bulletin contains information which will help residents to: • Prevent exposure to tick bites. • Recognize symptoms oftick-borne diseases. • Seek appropriate treatment. The risk of contracting other tickborne diseases, such as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, Babesiosis or Ehrlichiosis, is relatively small in Nassau County. However, since almost all residents at some time or other travel outside the county, it is artvjsahlejo be_aware of Lyjve disease

and other tick-related illnesses. Lyme disease vaccine is no longer available. The manufacturer of the vaccine has discontinued its production and distribution. The manufacturer also recommends that no additional doses be administered. The vaccine never replaced the need to always follow all recommendations to preven.t tick bites. For additional information on identifying ticks and preventing tickborne diseases, or to obtain the new bulletin, contact the Nassau County Department of Health at 571-2006.

As you are probably aware, we educate our students for less money than all but one other K-12 school district in Nassau County. Although our local tax burden increases, as does the burden of all Long Island communities, we must guarantee that all of our children receive a sound education. While we must continue to fight our state appropriation structure for greater aid to relieve our local tax burden, we need unity in our Freeport community. We need to pass our budget. Won't you please support our children's future and the future of Freeport? Children are our only business. Sincerely yours President Freeport Teachers Association

TREE HEALTH TIPS Brought to you by Tree Health Management, Inc.

It is easy to forget that trees and shrubs are living organisms that need the right conditions in order to thrive. They seem to stand tall against whatever Mother Nature throws at them, whether it is intense heat, frigid cold, wind or rain. But the truth is that a tree growing in poor-quality soil is as likely to thrive as a fish on dry land. One of the best ways to ensure that the topsoil in your yard remains hospitable to your trees and shrubs is to add mulch. Organic landscape mulches are used to protect soil, conserve moisture, moderate soil temperature, and limit weed growth. What is Mulch? Mulch is any material placed on the soil surface to help control soil conditions. Organic mulch is made of dead leaves, twigs, fallen branches and other plant debris that accumulate on the ground. Bacteria, fungi and other living organ;isms use these raw materials for food, a ^process we know as decay. Plants, in Iturn, feed off these nutrients in the soil. This is nature's way of returning to the earth the raw materials borrowed by previous generations of plants. What Do Mulches Do? In addition to providing food for your plants, organic mulch insulates and protects soil from "the'hard-baking effects caused by evaporation of water from soil exposed to hot sun and winds. Mulched soils stay cooler than non-mulched soils and have less fluctuation in temperature. Optimum soil temperatures and lesS moisture evaporation from the soil surface allow plants to grow evenly. Mulch lessens the force of rain and irrigation water, thereby preventing erosion, soil compaction and crusting. Mulched soils absorb water faster, and mulch prevents the splashing of mud and certain plant disease organisms onto plants and flowers during rain or overhead irrigation (sprinklers). A covering of mulch also keeps light from reaching the soil, which prevents the germination of many weed seeds. Fewer weeds result in less competition for available moisture and nutrients. Using mulch to control weeds is also less harmful to the environment than applying pesticides or cultivating the soil, which can damage tender, newly formed roots. How to Use Mulches Mulches should be applied in a layer 2 to 6 inches thick. The thickness of the layer of mulch depends on the type of mulch. Coarse mulches should be applied more thickly (a layer of about 4-inches) and

are most effective around trees and shrubs. The smaller and finer the particle size of the mulch, the thinner the layer needs to be. Thick layers of very fine material block air from reaching the plant roots. Fine mulch is best used around small flowers and vegetables in 2-inch layers. Tjpes of Mulches Mulches come in both organic and inorganic form. Inorganic mulches do not add nutrients to the soil and take years to decompose, if ever. However, they are effective in controlling moisture, -protecting the soil, and limiting weed growth. Inorganic mulches include crushed volcanic rock or stone, gravel or plastic film. Organic mulches include tree trimmings, pine bark, pine.needles, grass clippings, compost, peat moss, sawdust, wood shavings, straw and wood chips. Root Systems Tree roots serve two main functions: they absorb and transfer moisture and nutrients and they provide physical support for the above ground portion of the tree. There are two basic types of roots: woody and non-woody. Non-woody roots are found in the upper few inches of soil. Their primary function is to absorb water and nutrients. Sometimes called feeder roots, these non-woody roots extend from the thicker woody roots that connect to the tree stem. Woody roots are large lateral roots that form near the base of the root and stem, called the root collar. These roots support and anchor the tree in the ground. They also transport water and nutrients, and store carbohydrates. Woody roots are found 8 to 12 inches below the soil surface and grow horizontally from the root collar. They can extend well past the drip line of the tree (the radius of the tree canopy) and grow thicker throughout the year, which is why many roots eventually become exposed. In dry soils, some tree species will form "striker roots." These roots" grow vertically downward until they encounter an obstacle or soil with insufficient oxygen for growth. They provide food and yvater storage areas for the tree. Perhaps the biggest problem a tree root can have is soil compaction. This is when the soil becomes hard-packed and water and oxygen cannot pass through the closed spaces. Avoid the use of plastic either as mulch or under the mulch, as this will have the same impact as soil compaction.

..Good news for a healthy you

FOR OVER A CENTURY, THE BEST KEPT SECRET OF WELL-GROOMED WOMEN

So you can keep going Who is at risk of developing arthritis? It could be just about anyone, as it affects 420,000 Long Islanders. There are several factors worth knowing about to help you determine your particular chances of having arthritis. May is national Arthritis Awareness Month, a good time to learn where you stand in relation to arthritis. Answer these questions to help you begin: Are you 45 years of age or older? Have you ever had an injury to your knee severe enough to put you in bed, use a cane, crutch or brace or require surgery? Are you more than 10 pounds overweight? Have you in the past, or do you currently, participate in greater than three hours per day of heavy physical activities, such as bending, lifting or carrying items on a regular basis? Did you have hip problems that caused you to limp as a child? If you answered yes to any of those questions above, you are at risk for osteoarthritis, which is the most common type of arthritis. Osteoarthritis develops as a result of the wearing away of the cartilage that

covers the ends of bones. When this occurs, pain begins to set in, along with stiffness. The pain and stiffness can make it difficult or impossible to carry out everyday activities including climbing stairs, grasping objects such as pens or cooking utensils or getting out of the car. "Many people believe that there is no treatment for arthritis," comments Nancy Simington, Program Director of the Arthritis Foundation. "It is important for people to know that quality medical care can help people manage pain and maintain function. Combined with self management techniques, such as exercise, people can carry on with their daily family and work responsibilities, recreation and hobbies." Call the Long Island Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation at (631) 427-8272 to receive a free copy of the publication "51 Ways to be Good to Your Joints" plus a copy of the brochures "Arthritis Answers" and "Exercise." Included will be an Arthritis Assessment Questionnaire to help you understand the risk factors and symptoms of arthritis.

DOUGLAS CLARK I am an educator with the New York City Board of Education at the Erasmus Hall Campus, High School for Business and Technology in Brooklyn since October 1997. I am the Project Freire Literacy Coordinator and a Master Teacher with the Brooklyn High Schools Superintendency Literacy Program. I have had tremendous success bringing struggling readers to Regents level. I am also the Virtual Enterprise Coordinator 1. In March 1999, 1 was selected by the Board of Education to chaperone 20 NYC high school students to Vienna, Austria, to attend the Virtual Enterprise Trade Fair. I graduated from the University of the West Indies (BA) CW Post (MS Ed) and New School University (Adv. Prof. Cert.). I started community activities at high school: (Knox College, Spaldings, Jamaica). I was elected to the Student Council and I was a School Prefect. I was on the debating team and the school's Drama Club. My community activities now include Vice President of the St. Mark's Day School Parent Teachers Association; President, Freeport United Methodist Men; member of the Board of Trustees, Freeport United Methodist Church and a lay speaker. In addition, I am the Recording Secretary of the Epsilon Chapter of Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity Inc. and also PR Officer for the Knox Association of Past

Students (NY). Professionally, I am member of The National Council of Teachers of English, (NCTE). Hobbies include tennis, reading and listening to music. I am happily to married Ann-Marie Rattray and we have a delightful seven year old daughter, Savannah. 1) My priority would be to establish clear and precise standards and hold all students accountable. From the inception of their public education, students and parents must be made to understand and to subscribe to high challenging standards, accompanied by a rigorous and challenging curriculum. I would focus on early intervention; evaluate and identify struggling students early and implement remedial services to give them the skills needed to meet standards and close the gap. 2) I would make take steps to ensure .that the parents can work with administration and staff to guarantee access to high quality education. I would encourage increased school to college and school to business linkages, and get businesses and colleges to establish joint programs. I would focus more on attrition, cut waste and combine programs so that we do not deprive students of existing programs because of budget cuts. 3) To ensure safety I would encourage a zero tolerance system regarding drugs and weapons. Perpetrators must be dealt with accordingly with consequences to deter copycats. Schools must continue to be a safe haven. Social and counseling services must be easily available for all.

Council of Administration Nassau/Suffolk, St. John's University. Phil. D; New York University Counselor Education Workshop; East Meadow PTA Council Award. Messrs. Ellerbe and Reiiken offeree! the following joint response: l)The gap between success and failure for students is not determined by race or ethnicity. The dominant variables of group expectations and self-fulfilling prophecy are the clear definers of positive academic results. When expectations for all students are placed on the same plane and additional opportunity for remediation and acceleration are provided, positive results will slowly emerge. The key ingredient is high expectation on the part of all the participants in the process, including the Board of Education. Too often, we fall prey to socio-economic classification as a key predictor. It is the school district's responsibility to change the academic pecking order by maximizing intervention where needed and requiring the participation of all the players through its educational staff. The research evidence indicates that administrators, teachers, parents and students play major roles in defining expectations. Crucial factors in changing expectations are modifying instructional behavior, organized parental participation, and consistent administrative monitoring of student and staff performance. When you have data, use it rather than wailing for results. Parents must be contacted consistently. The teaching staff cannot be held solely accountable! Students, parents and administrators have major roles in the formula. Student attendance, attitude and work ethic are variables that parents can influence. The parent must play a dominant role and take charge of the child. Excuses are not the answer! A strong attendance policy must be enforced. Administrators and pupil personnel services must provide the organization and communication services to effect a positive program for academic success. Parental contact is imperative. "The Pygmalion in the Classroom" effect, as described above, was a cooperative effort of a school district with a simple focus. All of these programs are available in Freeport. Building personnel and parents must make sure that children take advantage of these opportunities. The Board of Education through the Superintendent's office must closely monitor the effort and the results. Accountability is a vital issue at all levels. 2) There is no reason to reduce services or extra-curricular activities. There are reasons to streamline our delivery of services when a financial emergency arrives. We need to employ cost effective strategies similar to those used in 1995-96 when we had a financial crunch. The Wall Street market drop and

Vote! Tuesday, May 21 - 6 a.m. - 9 p.m. "9/11" predictably reduced state aid and grant funding. This should not be a surprise to the majority of our current Board of Education. They should have taken the initiative by beginning the budget process in September rather than March. The Budget Committee should have been restored to assist the district in the decision-making process. Freeport is a "soft money" district! It is highly dependent on state and grant funding. Alternative approaches should have been explored inclusive of scheduling efficiencies on the secondary level. Twenty-five new classrooms added to the high school hold the potential for an eight period day and more effective balancing of class size, increased teacher-student contact and a reduced need for study halls. Additionally, a review of employeebenefits should have been explored to determine if a third party administration or "self-insurance" would reduce costs while retaining the same package. The standard population increase for 2002-2003 is Hat from Pre-K-Grade 12. We need additional special needs staff The normal attrition of staff should minimize the need for additional staff if we effectively schedule our current staff at all levels. Remember that the state is predicting a larger financial shortfall next year and a. continuation of lowered state aid. We need to be prudent or we will exacerbate next year's budget issue. We do not need to reduce our current staff. What we must do is use them more efficiently. Our current school board members should have raised "The Flag of Frugality" early in the school year. National conferences for school board members should have been negated, consultant costs for administrators training amounting to $2,000 per day should have been postponed, and alterations to the Administration Building stopped before they were started. Those moneys should have been placed in the fund balance to reduce taxes. This is where experience is needed on the Board of Education to make the tough decisions. 3) All of the manpower requirements, technical equipment, and policy standards are in place. What we need is to employ now "Parent-Power," staff consistency and administrative backbone. These elements will produce safe schools at all levels. We have a well-trained security force. With the addition of a strong attendance policy and a zero-tolerance for cutting and truancy, opportunity for problems should be minimized. Penalties must be employed consistently. You cannot turn your head the other way. A program of immediate parent involvement, enforced penalties, and consistent follow-up will get the message across that we will not accept anything but positive behavior. Those who continue to disrupt school operation must be removed from the mainstream and placed into alternate educational formats. Close contact with the police department to monitor any criminal activity should be maintained. Any form of gang activity inclusive of dress, hand signaling, or bullying must be acted upon immediately. Awareness

is the key to a solution. Major ingredients in any program of discipline are that there cannot be any extraequal or preferential treatment, every staff member must be consistently involved, and parents must be a part of the process. A solid program must begin on the first of school and finish intact on the last day.

CARMEN PINEYRO My name is Carmen Pineyro and I am a candidate for the Freeport Board of Education. In 1987 my family moved to Freeport from the Dominican Republic. I am a proud Freeport High School graduate of the Class of 1994. I attended Loyola College and received a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Spanish. I continued my educational quest and attended Hofstra University where I received a Paralegal Certificate with Honors. Currently, I am the Senior Paralegal with the law firm of Grant, Herrmann, Schwartz and Klinger, LLP. In an effort to support our community, I am currently coaching the Freeport Junior Varsity Lady Devils Lacrosse team, a PAL volunteer, as well as being one of the coordinators for the Adult Youth Group at Our Holy Redeemer Church. The pride, passion, desires and concern to make a difference in our school system is the reason that I decided to run for the Board. I believe that we must embrace the diversity and strengths of our community in order to move forward with the business of educating our children. It is important for the future of our educational system to have a true representation of our village. Working with students and the community has offered me an opportunity to view issues first hand. As a product of the Freeport school system and a resident of Freeport, I understand the needs and frustrations of the parents, students and educators. We must bridge the gap and concentrate on our strengths and not our weakness. There is no magic answer to solve all our problems but certainly if we don't try and we don't change, how will we ever know? Together we can make the difference. 1) This question causes me great distress. It is the job and the responsibility

of the School Board to increase the performance of all its children. We need to address the fact that in order to raise student performance we must provide our school community with a safe nurturing environment. It is vital to have an educational belief system which works hand in hand with our parents, staff members and children. We must continue to understand and address the diverse learning styles of our students. 2) I experienced and survived the austerity period in 1993. It was an event that I would never like to see again. The fact that local, state, and federal taxes are on the rise and aid to education is on the decline is a troubling dilemma. I believe that by forming a consortium with districts which share similar problems and lobbying legislators to provide relief would be my first course of action. Before ever cutting services or extra curricular activities, I would look for alternative means to assist these programs. We have a wealth of resources within our own community and it would be our job to reach out and tap every resource available so that our children do not suffer. 3) Every Freeport school has a Code of Conduct which was created by parents and staff members. The Code of Conduct is a tool which helps guide the parameters of the school environment. It is vital to maintain a positive environment for all students, so that they have pride and ownership in their educational dwelling. A mutual respect must exist in order for the educational process to be successful. Our students, parents and staff should be able to work and thrive in an atmosphere which is not punitive. As a last resort, students who are unable to be successful within the school day setting have alternative placements. It is the responsibility of the Board members to make sure that these children do not fall through the cracks and become a drop out statistic. Implementing One- to- One Mentoring programs would be a suggestion that I would like to see utilize.

It will help identify why a gap exists between some white and some minority students in our district; • Get information regarding federal and state laws which push schools to monitor student achievement by race; • Get all data identifying the race of the students who graduated from the Freeport School District in the top 25% of the class during the last five years; • Get information from the district identifying the teaching methods and approaches utilized to educate the diverse student population; • Have separate meetings with members of the administration, faculty, parents, and students after analyzing the data and finding clues that might assist in solving the problem and providing future methods for closing the performance gap. In the world of education, it is believed that when the school system is multicultural, diverse approaches to educating the students must be integrated into the overall educational process. Teaching methods, classroom environments, attitudes of faculty, students, the support from parents, the retention of faculty and administrators, recruitment of teachers that are qualified, who can identify and who teach to a diverse population are important in closing the gaps. 2) Quality education for students is the priority. State aid is important, to provide the level of education in Freeport, that we have. I would advocate seeking grants from other sources such as governmental, private, corporate, and! foundations to supplement the $2.3 million shortfall in state aid. Before services are eliminated, to .balance the budget, an analysis of the budget and services provided would be conducted, to ascertain the outcome of proposed cuts. I believe this board has done that. 3) I would analyze the safety systems, presently in place, in the school district, before advocating change. An investigation would be conducted to identify services and programs provided for youth by community, government and other agencies which provide or advocate positive youth development.

by Suzanne Handley Helmut Schemer, owner of the Pilots Shop in Baldwin, came to Long Island from Germany in 1962 lo pursue a career as an electrical contractor. He came on the advice of officers at a military base in Germany where he worked as a base electrician. Mr. Schemer is also an active aviatrix who has had a passion for flying all his life. In 1968 he trained for and received

his pilot's license at the Deer Park Airfield. He bought his first plane, a Cessna four-seater, in 1976 and traded that for a Piper Warrior in 1979. He still has his Warrior and flies it as often as he can, often twice a week.He loves flying over Long Island, whose scenery, he says, "is second to no other place on earth." He can wax poetic over the beaches and pine groves and has taken up aerial photography.

Mr. Schemer is a charter member of the Cradle of Aviation Society. He has donated a great deal of his time, despite his busy schedule as the owner of a contracting business, Schemer Electric. He is also the past president of the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce, a treasurer of the Kiwanis Club and an active member of the Baldwin Historical Society. Mr. Schemer also owns the Pilots Shop in Baldwin. Three of his four daughters run the store. They claim to be the largest pilots' store on the East Coast, selling everything from oil and technical equipment, to clothes and authentic flying jackets, to clocks and collectors items..

He is currently in the process of opening another aviation-related gift shop, with a maritime emphasis on Freeport's Woodcleft Avenue. A special feature of the store will be the display of a World War II fighter plane fitted out like one of the original "Flying Tigers." Mr. Schemer, along with fellow aviator Slim Heineken, are involved in a program, that encourages young people into the aviation field. The Early Flyers take youngsters on free flights to stimulate the love of flight. "We need new blood, these are the astronauts and pilots of tomorrow," said Mr. Schemer.

The Cradle of Aviation Museum A dream has just come true for Long Islanders. On Monday, May 20, the Cradle of Aviation museum will open its doors at Mitchel Field. "This is truly a world class museum," said Tom Gwyne, Vice President of External Affairs for the museum. "It is very exciting to realize that this museum is all about Long Island aviation. Some people think it happened somewhere else, but it happened right here." The museum is in some of the original hangars that stood in Mitchel Field. The museum will unveil some 60 historic aircraft that represent Long Island's enormous aviation and aerospace history. It is the largest aviation and aerospace collection outside of the Smithsonian. "Every aircraft at this museum was either built here or had some sort of historical significance for Long Island," said Mr. Gwyne. This museum has been 30 years in the making, said Edward Smits, Nassau County Historian. "It finally started to take hold in the 1970s when we began collecting planes." The first plane the museum received was a Curtis Jenny, that had been owned by Charles Lindbergh. "It is from the World War I period." It had been found in a barn by the late George Dade, and restored in his basement shop. In 1979 the idea of a museum took hold and work began. Thousands of volunteers have repaired or restored each aircraft, from the 1896 Lilenthal Glider to the 1969 Lunar Module. The museum is divided into eight exhibit galleries, starting with hot air balloons through a space station. There is also a number of interactive exhibits, where touching is allowed. "This place was designed with the idea to entertain as well as educate both the young and the old," said Mr. Gwyne. The center lobby is a four-story atrium. There are a number of aircraft hanging from the ceiling. Adjacent to the main entrance and

lobby is the Red Planet Cafe, a place to order hamburgers and hot dogs that is designed to look like a space station on Mars sometime in the future. The museum includes an IMAX Theater, the only one on Long Island. IMAX is known for its immersive experience. The films make the viewer feel as if they are in the middle of the action, whether it is soaring through space or diving below the sea. "This theater has the largest screen in New York State," said Mr. Gwyne. It has a seating capacity of 300 and will show films every hour, "hopefully seven days a week," he said. "We have great plans for this museum. We want to show people that aviation is not dead. It's alive and well."

A history of Long Island's aviation roots

00

«J oo

by Laura Schofer Long Island has had an enduring o) role in the history of aviation. We carried America from dirigibles to flying planes to space ships. We helped men leave our planet and travel to the Moon and beyond. This special section is dedicated to all those pioneers. 1 It is our intent to tell the history of aviation through the stories of K average Long Islanders - men and women who were witnesses and Q participants in America's greatest experience -from the early days at the Hempstead Plains, through the World Wars,,the Cold War and the Space Rac&. The people from our towns, Baldwin, Freeport, Merrick, Bellmore, Wantagh and Seaford have made history. We honor them. Thank you and congratulations on a job well done. CN

From the beginning of time, man has had a fascination with flight. Although the Wright brothers were the first to fly a power-driven plane, it was here on Long Island, that America learned to fly. The first attempts to fly on Long Island in a heavier than air craft were in 1896 in a Lilienthal hang-glider, followed in 1902 by dirigibles. Right here in our own backyard were four early aviation pioneers - two men from Freeport, Charles Manly and Augustus Herring and the Heinrich brothers from Baldwin. Charles Manly built a 52-horsepower rotary engine for the Langly Aerodrome and made two unsuccessful attempts in 1903 to fly just before the Wright Brothers got off the ground. Augustus Herring built gliders of his own design including a biplane (two wings) and triplane (three wings), and later helped raise money to help Glenn Curtiss manufacture aircraft including the 1909 Herring-Curtiss Golden Flyer that flew in Mineola. In 1910 Albert and Arthur Heinrich built monoplanes in a small barn in Baldwin. They are credited with building the Model A, the first American monoplane powered by an American engine. By 1912 they opened a flying school on the Hempstead Plains. The Hempstead Plains "were these large, flat, fields, the only prairie lands in the East," Ken Foreman of Bellmore said. He is a founding member of the Historical Society of the Bellmores and an aeronautical engineer. He also writes for the Long Island Forum. "These were natural landing fields with steady breezes," said Mr. Foreman. "It was the perfect place to test these airplanes, to experiment because at that time [19081917] airplane performance was not guaranteed." Glenn Curtiss agreed. He established a flying field in Mineola and learned to fly over these vast plains. In 1909 Mr. Curtiss, already known for his talent as a motorcycle racer, took to the air in Mineola and walked away with the $10,000 Scientific American prize from for a nearly 25-mile flight over Long Island. Later that summer, his student Charles F. Willard made the first "crosscountry" flight over Westbury and Mineola. He stayed in the air for 58 min.utes and flew 28 miles. Mr. Curtiss went

on to design and fly the first plane capable of landing and taking off from the water and by 1911 he sold the U.S. Navy on two seaplanes. He is generally regarded as one of the leaders of Long Island aviation. His success encouraged other aviation pioneers to come to Long Island. Mr. Curtiss, along with others, moved from alongside the Mineola Fairgrounds to further out on the Hempstead Plains. A number of firsts occurred on Long Island during this period including the first wireless radio transmission from a moving aircraft; the first airplane flight across the United States aboard the "Vin Fiz;" the development of the gyroscopic stabilizer by Lawrence Sperry and the development of the Curtiss Company as an aeronautical research, development and manufacturing facility. The First World War transformed the Hempstead Plains Airfield into a training place for Army pilots who learned to fly on the Curtiss Jennies. The field was renamed Hazelhurst Field and in 1918 it was renamed Roosevelt Field in

honor of Theodore Roosevelt's son Quentin, who was killed in action. A second field, adjacent to Roosevelt Field, was named Mitchel Field. This was a military airfield originally opened under the name of Aviation Field 2. After World War I Long Island entered what is called "The Golden Age of Flying." Long Island became the center of aviation activities. "New ideas were coming fast and furious," Mr. Foreman said. "There were always new records for speed, range, altitude. It was happening almost every month." It was during this period that regularly scheduled airmail service began with flights in 1918 from Washington D.C. to Belmont Park. By 1924, there was transcontinental airmail service. In 1923 Lts. J.A. Macready and O. Kelly made the first nonstop flight across the United States from Roosevelt Field. Elinor Smith of Freeport set a number of women's altitude and endurance records during the 1920s. And, it was during this era that Charles A. Lindbergh made his solo flight across the Atlantic, from New York to Paris in May

of 1927. In 1929 Roosevelt Field bought out Curtiss Field. A new Curtiss Field opened in Valley Stream. During the 1930s Roosevelt Field was considered the busiest civilian airfield in the country. The Roosevelt Aviation School, for civilians, was founded during this period. At the same time, Milchel Field, a U.S. Army facility, was also selling new records in avialion. Lt. Cyrus Bellis set a speed record of 249 mph in 1925. In 1938 Mitchel Field was the starling point for the first transcontinental bomber (light by Army B-18s. Aviation industries followed the aviation pioneers. Businesses supplying parts and equipment, airplane factories, even research facilities, sprung up all over Long Island. In December 1929. Roy Grumman and Jake Swirbul founded Grumman in a rented Baldwin garage. Their first contract, for $37,000. was to design and build a single float with retractable landing gear for the Navy. By the end of WWII, Grumman built 17.000 (continued on next page )

combat planes. Its Hellcats, Wildcats and Avengers were credited for downing almost two thirds of enemy aircraft in the Pacific Theater. Republic Aircraft, founded in 1931, was another Long Island aviation giant. During the Second World War they supplied more than 15,000 P47 Thunderbolt Fighters. The Cold War and Space Race helped to keep aviation industries on Long Island. Local industries have provided at number of aircraft. Sperry developed remote control jet aircraft. They also continued to build radar and bombing systems and the advanced gyroscope and guidance system for the X-15 rocket plane. Grumman built Panthers and Cougars, the F-IIF Tiger, the F-14; the Gulfstream I and II as well as the Mohawk surveillance aircraft, among others. Republic built the F-84,- and the F- 105 Thunderchief. In 1965 a Maryland-based company called Fairchild bought Republic and FairchildRepublic was born. The new aviation giant worked on the 747 Boeing program and the A-10. It was Grumman, under the direction of engineer Thomas Kelly, a Merrick resident, who designed and constructed the Lunar Excursion Module that took Neil Armstrong to the moon on July 20, 1969. The LEM made five more round trips to the moon and served as the "lifeboat" that rescued the stranded crew of Apollo 13. Supporting systems for- the Lunar Excursion Module were also developed by Long Island indus-. tries including Republic and EDO. In almost 60 years Long Island had taken the country from the dusty plains of Hempstead to the Moon. But times were changing fast. Roosevelt Field closed in 1951 and became a shopping mall in 1956. The Curtiss Airfield was also developed into the Green Acres Shopping mall. In 1987 Fairchild-Republic closed its doors, leaving 2,800 workers unemployed. In 1994 Grumman was bought by Northrop Corp. and cut its work force down to 3,800 people. Also that year EDO Corp. sold two thirds of its manufacturing space and reduced its workforce by 100 people. It was the end of an era, but it was a time America and Long Island would never forget. We had set out to make our dreams a reality and we did it, right here in our own backyard.

Roosevelt board ousted by Carl Gordon

CN

The elected Roosevelt school board has been removed from office, effective last Wednesday, after an VO investigation supporting the statutory requirements was completed. New York State Commissioner Richard Mills, acting under a new law passed in April, found that the requirements for removal had been met, and, since the board had not performed its required functions, would no longer be empowered to run the troubled W Q school district. Mr. Mills is expected < to appoint a new school board short-

Under the provisions of the law, control of the district would be returned to local elected officials gradually over ine next several years. In a 15-page report, the commissioner detailed his findings required in three major areas in the statute, and evaluated the attempts at refutation by the school board members. The first criterion for removal of the board members, "serious deficiencies [that] imperil the educational welfare of children...," included consistent failure in the high school to meet established performance targets; a drop-out rate among the highest in the state; frequent teacher turnover in the high school; poorly maintained facilities and failure to address chronic building,. maintenance, safety and health issues. Commissioner Mills also detailed issues relating to the fact that the high school is under registration review and at risk of deregistration. He also found that the board "has failed to e-xercise appropriate fiscal management of the school district and failed to take actions necessary to balance the budget." The final deficiency was in the area of governance and administration of the school district. Mr. Mills stated, "I find that the board has not acted to recruit and retain such leadership and has, at times, taken actions to undermine the very leaders upon whom it must rely." Superintendent Horace Williams, who was appointed in mid-2001, will retain his position, subject to quarterly review by the commissioner. This is standard procedure with many superintendents in the state, according to State Education Department spokesman Bill Hirschorn. He also indicated that applications for appointment of the three -new school board members who must come from the Roosevelt community .were due Tuesday. The Board of Regents will select from the applications and appoint two additional members who may or may not be from the Roosevelt community by May 21.

Board considers new taxi service V—7~ - by Jim Golding Freeporters may get another taxi service to meet their travel needs if an application from Long Island Checker Cab wins approval at a June 24 public hearing. Village trustees voted Monday to set the hearing for that date. Currently, McRides and Taxi America provide taxi service to Freeport. In other actions, board members approved a Fire Department request to hold a carnival May 23-27 at the Recreation Center parking lot. Operating times will be 6-11 p.m. on May 23 and 24; noon to 11 p.m. on May 25 and 26 and 11 a.m.-8 p.m. on May 27. This includes a $20,000 contract awarded to Gargano Amusements Inc. to operate the carni-

val. '-, • '..,,,....,-. The Freeport Community Development Agency also received approval to contract with Gargano Amusements to operate a carnival at Seaport Municipal Park from May 31 to June 2. In other business, trustees removed user fees on tax bills for sanitation collection and disposal for various properties because of a reduced volume of waste being generated. They also reduced the sanitation and collection fee for 315 South Main Street by nearly $735, and reduced the tax assessment on various properties over disputed water bills that have been paid. Following their brief meeting, trustees adjourned to executive session to consider eight personnel actions, two lawsuits and a real estate issue.
