But local activists, like Richard Schary of Bellmore, sees the plan as a smoke screen for a road expansion plan that will add HOV lanes to the Southern State and Meadowbrook Parkways. The RCVs- (buses) will have the look of a monorail and would operate in HOV lanes that admit carpools with special on and off ramps on the parkways. It would' put 1,270 RCVs on the roads, 50 new RCV routes, 38 new miles of HOV lanes (in addition to the ones on the LIE) and 148 miles of road widening. (continued on page 18)

Thanks volunteers To .The Leader: I wish to thank and congratulate the more than 160 volunteers who teamed together this past weekend for the Meadowbrook Pond and woodlands clean up. All. of the volunteers who participated in this event achieved a

A Baldwin man is one of seven who were recently charged with insurance fraud by Nassau County District Attorney Denis Dillon. Mark A. Combs, 30, of Adams Street, doing business as CP Home Improvement, on March 13, 2000, allegedly submitted a forged Certificate of Insurance to a general contractor to obtain subcontracting work while avoiding payment of Workers' Compensation

insurance premiums. According to the DA, the fraudulent certificate indicated that CP Home Improvement was covered by Workers' Compensation Insurance, which was not the case. Mr. Combs is accused of causing the general contractor to be billed $2,450 by the State Insurance Fund in additional.premiums, and of failing to reimburse the general contractor ,for those additional charges. Mr. Combs is charged with one count of Criminal Possession of a Fdrged Instrument, a felony punishable by up to seven years in prison.

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

Like mother, like daughter "Watch Sandy Feuerstein," the late State Senator Norman Levy used to say of his Merrick neighbor, "she will go far." And already in j99(Xthis newspaper called her "a woman who has a hand in making tomorrow's history," describing how she took part as a District Court judge in the opening of the court's new building, how she helped write the history of law in Nassau County 'as editor of the Nassau Lawyer, and how she'served as president of the Nassau County Women's Bar Association. " | Now a New York State Supreme Court Justice, she was recently nominated by President George W. Bush to jthe federal bench for the Eastern District of New York. If confirmed by the U.S. Senatej she will join her mother, Annette Elstein, a U.S. immigration judge, in federal service. Only two levels below the U.S. Supreme Court, she will deal with such cases as disputes between businesses located in different states where state jurisdiction has not been established, murders committed on federal property, and other such matters in federal jurisdiction. ' .Fortunately, she has wide experience in both'criminal and civil law. In 1996, Nassau County Court Monitors of the Supreme Court described her as "efficient," "in control of proceedings," "alert," "patient" and "concerned." They were impressed with her manner of serving the public. One wrote, "If all the judges were like Sandra Feuerstein there wouldn't be so many delays, and court time would not be wasted." The Fund For Modern Courts, in a 1999-2000 evaluation of Associate Justice Feuerstein on her work in the Appellate Division of the State Supreme Court, found "she has a pleasant personality and at the same time is a consummate profes- . sional." One commentator rated her "one of the top judges in Nassau." Her intelligence, work ethic, knowledge, preparation, and research were lauded. One lawyer noted "there was an erudite discourse of the law in the jury charge." According to the report, she has a reputation for working hard to get cases settled before they go to trial, as well as for being evenhanded and fair. Justice Feuerstein's knowledge can be measured in her decisions, articles in journals and lectures to law students, professional and lay groups. Her integrity can be attested to by the fact that she was chosen to serve oh the State's Judicial Ethics Advisory Board, and her heart can be seen in her actions, for example, serving as legal counsel to the Merrick Senior Center when it was founded, and helping establish a supervised visitation center for Nassau County Family Court where non-custodial parents could safely meet with and fill the needs of their children. . One of her favorite stories is of a young man who, after she , sentenced him in a case, sent her a card featuring Dorothy of "The Wizard of Oz" "because you believed in me." Arid her many friends in Nassau County believe in Justice Sandra Feuerstein, former teacher, wife to local attorney Al Feuerstein, mother to Bethesda attorney Adam Feuerstein and Seth Feuerstein now completing his residency in forensic psychiatry at Yale, grandmother to Arielle and Jacob, and role model to countless! others.

New home ownership center in Freeport by Jason Gers "The Community Development Corporation of Long Island (CDC) opened up a new hqme ownership and maintenance center on Merrick Road in Freeport. The event packed the entire store front, and was attended by County Executive Thomas Suozzi^ and Roslyn Savings Bank Chairman Joseph Mancino. . : The center seeks to provide all varieties of housing services, including pre-purchase education,

innovative loan products, home renovation services, early delinquency counseling, and programs on the topics of insurance education, home improvement and weatherization. assistance. The Ford Foundation announced at the event the "i.---' launch of their Weatherization, Rehabilitation and Asset Preservation'.pilot program.

jUSt \A/rit© loy joon cSolanoy by Joan Delaney THANKS On Sunday, August 4, from noon till 4 p.m. the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce will be holding its annual community picnic at Baldwin Park. It will be a time of free food and fun for everyone with special events, music, and games for children. All are welcome. The purpose of the event is two-fold. Chamber members want to thank the community for patronizing their businesses. Business people today are well aware that consumers can go anywhere for a product or service and Baldwin's Chamber members are thankful that so many residents choose Baldwin's professionals, restaurants, and retail stores for their goods and services.,. In an unincorporated area such - as Baldwin, however, the Chamber serves

more functions than simply that of fostering business for its members. The Chamber is one of the prime organizations which recognizes the importance of encouraging community pride and cohesiveness. The annual picnic helps to do that. In many respects, the picnic should also serve as an opportunity for the community to thank the businesses which join the Chamber. These are the people who year in and year out are asked to support the many other activities in town. These are the people who support youth sports leagues and who donate goods and services to all sorts of community events. These are the people who looked around the town and decided to expand their mission to include many quality of life issues. It was a Chamber of Commerce com-

f|Q O

mittee, chaired by Sairi landiorio of Frank Electric, who worked with Sanitary District Number Two to share the costs of the new "classy cans" around town. The names you see on those cans are the sponsors and the people who solicited those sponsors were busy Chamber members. It was the 'Chamber who shared costs with the Town of Hempstead for_a professional survey of the community and it was the information in that survey which was used by the Business Improvement Committee of the Chamber to encourage the Town of Hempstead to move forward with the first phase of the downtown facade improvement-project. Be assured the Chamber continues to lobby for additional phases. It is Chamber members who attend the Council of Chambers of Commerce

meetings to network w i t h other Chambers and with important officials of the county and town to lobby for Baldwin's needs. " At the August 4 picnic, people whom you usually see in a professional selling will be cooking hamburgers and frankfurters, pouring soda, and helping at various other tables and events. This would be the time to thank them for what they do for Baldwin. Chamber members are the people who recognize that their business extends beyond their own front door and know that what's good for Baldwin's residents is also good for them. When you have a choice, palroni/e those Chamber members who give back to the community and urge other businesses which reap the benefit of the Chamber's efforts to join.

Notable Freeporter Arnold Sylvester dead at 89 Arnold Sylvester, a true renaissance man and well-known supporter of the aris on Long Island, died July 13 at the age of 89. A Freeport resident of 51 years, Arnold and his wife, Belle, have heen on the hoard of the Freeport Concert Association for 50 years, and have heen renowned for bringing some of the finest talent in the world to Long Island and producing the Island's finest concert series. His love of music extended to his creative talents as a violinmaker, and he shared his love of art as a fine'painter, adorning their residence with his vast collection of paintings based on the couple's world travels. A legacy of values was created from his associations as President of the Long Island Humanist Society, President of the New York Ethical Culture Society and President of the American Ethical Union. He was a valuable board member of Operation PRIDE and was tremendously active in politics in the Democratic movement. He was also a dedicated friend of the Freeport Memorial Library, and in collaboration w i t h Dr. Vincent Palladino, restored pictures and enhanced statuaries which beautify v the library today. Mr. Sylvester was born in New York and started his early art studies al Pratt and The. Art Student's League. Applying his artistic talents to a practical world, he entered the University of Virginia as an architectural student. However, his curiosity and love of other cultures led him to a B.A. in Archaeology. He then went on to Columbia University, where he received his Master's degree in Egyptology and shortly after was given'a position at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Enchanted by a a beautiful 18-year old violinist and doctoral candidate in Psychology al Columbia University, he was faced with a decision of participat-

ing in a long archaeological dig with the museum or marrying. The decision was quite obvious and Belle became his wife of 67 years. Together they created a home with great appreciation for the arts, the love of knowledge and philanthropy. They had two children, Robert and Vicki, who became accomplished musicians. His creative juices led Arnold into the world of marketing and advertising, where he held the .position of V.P. of marketing for Pepsi Cola, famous for his innovative free outdoor park concert • series with Paul Robeson. His career fol- • lowed as V.P. of marketing with A&P, where he was known for his supermarket promotion of Rodgers &

Hammerstein's show albums presented by Ed Sullivan. With his combined talents in art and marketing, he moved on to publishing, where he held V.P. of Marketing positions at J.J. Little & Ives, Fawsett Publications and CBS. He will be dearly missed by his fami-

ly, friends and community. However, his incredible spirit will always prevail. He is survived by his wife, Belle, son, Robert, daughter, Vicki, daughter-in-law Jane, and grandsons Jonas Sylvester and Nicholas"Granat.

Union army recruit, ready to leave for the war front, and his bride. During. this period, most marriages were performed either in the bride's home or the minister's residence. The


bride .often wore her best dress, not always white, so that it could be worn other times. Wedding gifts were not lavish and typical .gifts were jewelry, a Bible and fancy needlework items. This re-creation of a Civil War wedding will be held at the Williams house. Visitors are asked to extend their best wishes to the newlyweds and sample a serving of the wedding cake. Admission to Old Bethpage Village Restoration is $7 for adults and $5 for children, seniors, the disabled, firefighters, ambulance corps members, police and veterans. •

"Life on the Pond" at Giblyn When parents and students at Leo F. Giblyn School came to see Carla Sasso's second grade class perform their play entitled "Life on the Pond." they knew they would be entertained, but they didn't realize that they would end up learning all about insects, habitats and life cycles. These young actors dressed as bumblebees, birds, beavers, bears and bunnies to show everyone how insects

find food, how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly and how a hermit crab picks a home. Students made their own costumes and sets, and even wrote their own lyrics to the songs they sang. The show is one of many events at Giblyn desgined to make learning real - to help students connect what they learn in the classroom to real world experiences.

Activists tell residents LITP is no good for the community

from page 1 The Southern Stale j Parkway portion will cost $155 million and all our bridges will have to come down and he rebuilt higher and wider. The entire program will cost $5 billion. How did (his plan come into existence? Lisa Tyson told residents that the plan began "about 4 years ago when the Department of Transportation had a good idea to plan-for long-term traffic. They look out ads in the Pe'nnysaver looking for citi/.en involvement. I became involved and we met for six months. I can honestly say that not one citizen came in and asked for more HOV lanes. Everyone talked about mass transit, such as buses and light rail or railroad." Richard Schary was another of those private citi/cns involved with LITP. He sat on the Zoning, Land:Use and Funding Committee. "The idea was lo get away from auto transportation," he told residenls. The majority of the members who made up this plan include Long Island's state legislators, representatives from Long Island's counties, towns, cities and villages, members of the business community, academic institutions, transportation experts and six private cili/.ens." The cili/.ens were added because I complained," said Ms. Tyson. "There were representatives 4 from AAA, Long Island Association, New York Stale Motor Truck Association, but no one from the handicapped or bicyclists, or bus riders." And so local aclivisls want residents lo call or write Governor George Pataki or Nassau County Executive Thomas Su'ozzi and ask them lo re-think this^plan. "We're nol saying Ihey should scrap the plan but re-think it," said Vicki Rosenberg. "If I can see the cracks why

can't they?" Activists want to see a plan that includes more mass transit, including a light rail system and more development of the Long Island Rail Road as well as the development of bike ways and walkways. Mr. Schary also spoke about permanent parks along our parkways. Keith Mainheart told the other residents that "I am one of the hundreds of thousand ignored by the DOT. I use public transportation and it seems as if they [DOT] have forgotten us." "When they straighten out the roads, people will go faster. I don't want to feel like I'm a pinball in a machine," said another resident. Mark Finkel complained that the plan offered nothing for "north-south transportation. "I'm handicapped and I don't drive. What about people like me?" Michael Cromwell doesn't drive either. "I take my bicycle from my home in Westbury to my jobjn Uniondale. It's a great way to travel but there are times when I'm scared to death. I have close calls everyday. I think we need more bicycle lanes." Another resident thought it would be a good idea lo offer "free transportation downtown. That's what they do in Seattle. Why not make it convenient for people to take the buses, instead of making someone wait 45 minutes for a bus, .without any kind of shelter," he said. "And you say it's $5 billion for this plan. What about cost overruns? We have hacks in Albany." Vincent Corrado, a consultant who works for the DOT, defended the plan. "Take a look at our website. It is a comprehensive plan." "I just want to know if you are planning to take down the trees on Southern

State Parkway, widen the roads and put up sound walls," asked one woman. "Yes," said Mr. Corrado," but it's still a good plan." Assemblyman Dave McDonough supports the idea of re-thinking this plan. "If you want a stake in the decision, you must get involved. Write or call. I'm " rethinking this. Senator Fuschillo and I are exploring other options. We're trying to figure out how to get people downtown and we're talking about a bus. We're all concerned about air pollution. We shouldn't scratch the plan but rethink

it." . ' Vicki Rosenberg said that it was possible for citizens to fight city hall. "I don't want my ghost to hear the cries of the children who are asking why we didn't stop this. What are we leaving for our children? Do we really want to tear down paradise to put up a parking lot?" * * » Want to learn more about LITP2000?.

Williams resigns, faces prison from page 1 A special election will be held on September" 10 to fill the vacant seat. According to Mr. Suo/.zi, the Democrats are going to run Kevan Abrahams, of Freeporl. Tony Sanlino, Nassau Republican Spokesman, said the G.O.P. has not yet chosen a candidate. The resignation came as no great surprise to either County Executive Suoz/.i or Dave Denenberg. Mr. Suo/./,i said, "I heard a little in advance." Legislator Denenhcrg told The Leader, "I expected that he could |resign)," although "I sort oC expected Patrick to wait until the August 5 | legislative) meeting." Commenting on his character, Mr. Denenberg described Patrick Williams as "very intelligent. He conducted himself in a soft-spoken and dignified manner. He was passionate about issues that mallcrcd to him." According Mr. Denenberg, Patrick Williams introduced his last bill to the Legislature the day before his resignation. The hill, which passed committee but has not faced the whole Legislature, would give greater consideration to

minority- and women-owned businesses (MBAs) for county contracts. Similar to federal and state laws on the subject, Mr. Denenberg said the law was "not a quota." The Legislature will consider the bill on August 5. The former legislator's case was heard before District Judge .Joanna Seybert at the U.S. Courthouse in Central Islip, and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Tirschwell. U.S. Attorney Alan Vinegrad stated that "by conspiring to obtain government benefits through deceit and fabrications, Patrick Williams put millions of taxpayer dollars at risk and potentially deprived other honest citizens of the opportunity to benefit from the important government program." The loans were for homes in Freeport, Baldwin, Brookville, the Bronx (2), Manhattan, Uniondale, Queens, Westbury, Jamaica, and Roosevelt. Mr. Williams' sentencing is scheduled for November 15. He was originally indicted in October of 2001, after which he ran for and won a second term in the legislature.
