THE STUDENTS STAND IN X SUPPORT OF FARMWORKERS. This puppet, carried by students from Youth Arts Group, a program of the Rural and Migrant Ministry, symbolizes "the farm workers in chains. The head represents the people who hold the laws and the power to help farm workers," said Prisco Acevedo standing in the forefront of this photo.

"We have waited Robert, seven years to see some changes made to Robert and Maria. the laws covering farm workers. We want them |the labor committee] to take a stand, instead of stalling this legislation in committee." The legislation, known as the Farmworker Fair Labor Practices Act, was sponsored by Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan of the 37th Assembly District in Queens and passed the Democratic-controlled Assembly. However, it has not been passed in the Senate. Senator Fuschillo is cine of three Long Island Senators who are members of the Labor Committee. The other two senators are Senators James Lack of the Second District (in Suffolk County] and Senator Carl I Marcellino of the Fifth District [Nassau and Suffolk CountyJ. Similar rallies are planned at their Long Island offices as well.

Farm Workers Stage protest in Freeport By Laura Schofer A handful of Mexican farm workers from the Hudson Valley took a day off from picking fruits and vegetables in the fields to attend a rally in Freeport recently. They don't usually have a day off and they have no legal right under New York State law to have 24 consecutive hours of rest, but they thought it was important enough to risk losing their jobs. One man, who called himself "Javier" but would not provide any details about himself, including his last name, was concerned about retaliation from his employer if he knew about his activities. At this time, farm workers do not have'the right to bargain collectively under the law. "I come to be here to say, Senator Fuschillo, we wish for more legal rights," he said in broken English. Why Freeport? Why New York State Senator Charles Fuschillo? "Senator Fuschillo is a member of the Senate Labor Committee," said Father

letters to the editor Dolan thanks Freeport to The Leader: Just about everyone knows what a "to-do" list is. We compose an itemized oo listing of the many things we want to do, 3 and cross them off as, we complete each task. When a list gels too long, we start a new one. being careful to transfer the items that have not been taken care of to 3 JT the new list.

The task is an-overdue thank you to a community that supported me, my family, and especially my daughter Kelly, at our darkest time. We were compelled to move from Freeport early this spring, to a larger house for the rest of our family. We found that' house, right over the border in Baldwin and have settled in there now. Of course Kelly is with us, and her recuperation continues. Truth be told, she has not made the kind of progress we had hoped for. However, I know that she is as well-cared-for as any person in her condition. But, upon leaving Freeport, I also felt compelled to tell the many people who helped us (and still help us) how thank-

ful we were for their aid when my daughter's accident occurred almost seven years ago. At that time, I was able to see the people of this village at their best, doing all they could to make it possible for us to bring Kelly home and then care for her. The actions of the Freeport Fire Department (especially Ed and the Rescue Squad) were called upon many times and only through their swift response did Kelly even survive..After that, Murphy Construction (headed by the legendary Bill Murphy) took over and along with just about every carpenter (thanks Ben), plumber (thanks Andy) and electrician (thanks Les), roofer, mason and tradesman in. Freeport, they helped build a room for Kelly in which she could recover. Then enter the many other heroes: Joe from Romeo's who could always be counted on to send over a pie to feed the crew that was working. Alan at Bayview Pharmacy who was proven to be the most helpful, professional,- knowledgeable, compassionate and responsive pharmacist anyone could hope for, (Think of those words the next time you are in a big chain pharmacy!)

And firtaHy, our many-neighbors' who came to'read ;tp Kelly,: or stretch her limbs, or listeneduo^pur sad story without walking away. I regret that I cannot list each and every one for you^but each of you helped in your own way* •""" Before the accident, my vision of Freeport was summed up in the words of another hero of mine, Harry Chapin. He once sang "You find a place where you've come from." Although I am not a native Freeporter, I certainly felt that my family and I had found our hometown. While many of those good feelings were dulled in October of 1995,1 still owe it to many of you to offer this thanks and to remind you of what a special town you live in. I certainly will not be a stranger to Freeport, and I'll be seen at Romeo's and Bayview Pharmacy and even saying hello to Ed at Bayview Liquors. When I do, I'll be reflecting on the unique character of Freeport and the spirit of those who live there. The Dolan family

Reassessment clarified for Nassau taxpayers by Carl Gordon The people spoke - and the government listened. Furthermore, they acted. At a meeting of over 300 irate citizens at Wantagh High School recently, speaker after speaker complained to Legislator Dave Denenberg, who had called the meeting, and Board of Assessors- member Jeff Gold, about their treatment by representatives of Cole Layer Trumble (CLT), the consulting firm hired by Nassau Cpunty to conduct the county wide reassessment currently under way. Homeowners had received their new tentative assessment, pegged at one percent of value, and many had already taken advantage of the opportunity to make a case to adjust the figure at . a meeting at the CLT office in Westbury.

Their objections were noted by Mr. Denenberg and Mr. Gold, and, at a Friday meeting of the Board of Assessors, most of the concerns expressed were changed or clarified. Mr. Gold reports that residents will be allowed as many as three visits to CLT to present evidence regarding their new proposed assessed value. The five-toseven day time limit to present new evidence has also been lifted. Also, the five comparable values used by appraisers to arrive at the new value will be furnished on request to the homeowner. Feedback forms have been made available to residents visiting CLT, upon which they may communicate their experience to the Board of Assessors. Rudeness by CLT personnel will not be tolerated. Several appraisers have been terminated, according to Mr. Gold, and

Preventing West Nile virus The Department of Health reports its continued enhanced mosquito surveillance, begun in 1999. Traps have been set out at 42 sites around the county. Residents should report dead birds to the New;York State hotline at 1-866537-2473. ,, No positive mosquito pools have been reported this year to date. No cases of West Nile Virus have been reported in

the county. No incidents involving humans or other mammals have been reported this year, but four positive birds have been reported, two in Woodbury, one in Woodmere and one in Plainview. Residents are reminded to remove standing water from pools, gutters, old tires, or children's toys, since mosquitoes rarely .travel more than 200 feet from their origin.

Letters to the editor are welcome. They should be typed, double-spaced, if possible, or printed clearly. We must have a name and daytime phone number to call.

further changes will be made if necessary. A plea for a formula used by CLT was made by some residents at the meeting. Mr. Gold has explained that no formula is used, but appraisers use their experience, comparable sales, and property location, among other "factors, to arrive at a projected market value. "If a resident believes that he or she has a formula that more accurately establishes the value of a home, CLT must consider that formula," Mr. Gold stated. A peek into a future problem: With the school tax accounting for more than



60-percent of a homeowner's total tax bill, the impact on each individual prop- c ^1 erty will not be known u n t i l the total .Q. assessed value of all of the properties in each school district is shared with school officials, usually some lime in OQ c March. It is possible that one percent of 'true market value, the new assessment. .will be much lower than the old assess- to ment, resulting in a huge increase in the tax rate, with (he total tax paid by a homeowner changing very slightly, in unless the properly was vastly over- or m under-assessed under the old system. > D

Freeport volunteers march to first place Freeport firefighters look first place in the recent Nassau County Parade in Oceanside. The parade was the closing of a two-day event that included an old fashioned drill where Freeport Engine 1 's "Wide Awakes" and Freeport Hose I's "Nighthawks" lied for second place overall. In the Motorized Drill Truck Company 1's "The Dead End Kids" placed second in the Buckets event and third in the Efficiency event. Mayor Bill Glacken and Trustee Don Miller were among those who marched in the parade.

In August. Freeport's lire department \\ill host two groups that have been strong supporters of the volunteers. Firefighters from Langford. British Columbia, and Walldorf.

Pave paradise,put up a (long) parking lot ,^-__?.._,rr 0 the Southern State, Wantagh and Meadowbrook . Parkways, as proposed in the New York State Department of Transportation LITP 2001 Plan, poses a number of problems for local residents. For example, what will happen to the homes that face the parkways, and to the bike path on Wantagh Parkway, and proposals for other paths? Just recently, there was a horrible accident on Wantagh Parkway in which a bicycling family was run over. Could more guard rails (wood? metal? concrete?) have prevented this tragedy? How do you balance the safety of pedestrians and drivers? Metal rails can amputate a motorcyclist's limbs; concrete may spin a car back into other vehicles. How wide can the parkways get without raising, not just aesthetic issues, but also pollution and safety concerns? For the public health, shouldn't we be encouraging, instead of discouraging, bicycling, rollerblading and walking to the beaches? And wouldn't improvements to the mass transit system, especially north-south connections by light rail or express bus, greatly improve everyone's quality of life? If you share our concerns about LITP 2001, please make them known to Governor George Pataki and County Executive Thomoas Suozzi.

jUSt writ© toy Joan dolonoy RELATIONSHIP ....At the most recent Baldwin Board of Education meeting, the district contracted with BOCES/Syntax Communications to provide public relations services to the district. In a brief explanation, Board President James Scannell described some of the tasks which the company will provide, such as the preparation of the annual calendar and newsletters. Interestingly, the job title of this company is,different from the title of the position as it presently, exists. That office has previously been'c'alled Public Information. Public information is very different in emphasis from public relations. It will

be interesting to see if that title change is something intentional or simply a casual semantic difference without any intended difference in attitude, process or outcome. ' . Public information centers on such written materials as calendars, newsletters, and press releases as well as access to records and responses to freedom of information requests. Public relations is something more and not that easily defined, but those differences have often been the crux of community discontent. As a member of the press, I have always been pleased by the public relations aspects of the position as held by three different district staffers over two decades. Each has been consistently



who have" tried to get publicity for Baldwin events beyond our own borders have bemoaned the lack of interest by major media in south shore events. Many people believe that the media stereotype a community and then print only that "news" which reinforces their bias. Many publicists for local groups speak of spinning their wheels to get positive publicity. Having said that, however, the Board of Education should recognize that it will be up to them to direct the focus of BOCES/Syntax. This h i r i n g change •should be used by the district to rethink its relationship with the public as well as its perception by the public. The board and administration should set some public relations objectives.

pleasant and helpful to me, although each has also been discreet and circumspect. But the job description as it has existed in the past has not left room for the kind of widespread public relations activities that many people in the community want. Residents want to see a pro-active emphasis on promoting Baldwin schools, applauding student achievement and publicizing school events. They also want to see a more egalitarian reaching out by the board and administration. Unfortunately, most people don't realize how difficult and time consuming that chore is. Members of community organizations

Baldwin board announces process by Joan Delaney The Baldwin School District is in dis' cussions with SCOPE (Suffolk County Organization for the Promotion of Education) and will most probably contract with them to hire a retired principal who is willing to serve as an interim principal at Brookside School. This administrator would replace the school's former principal, Sheryl McBeth, who was not rehired, causing widespread concern and protest among many Brookside parents. SCOPE is a not-for-profit organization founded in 1964 and chartered by the New York State Board of Regents. It is a cooperative venture to facilitate .sharing educational resources among regional schools. In response to a question from Umberto Thomas at the August 7 Board of Education meeting, President James Scannell noted that among its educational services, SCOPE has a "pool of retired educators who are available to serve in interim positions." He expected that the district would contract with SCOPE so that a principal would be in place by the opening of school and able to contact and speak with parents beforehand. Because this hiring would involve a contract with SCOPE rather than with the interim principal, it would not follow the normal screening and hiring procedures or regular board approval process. Mr. Scannell added that the district would expect the interim principal to stay for the entire school year, as it. would not want to rush to hire a new

principal during the school year. "I don't think we would want to hire a principal who would leave his school and students mid-year." The hiring of a new principal for 2003-4 would include parental input in a process which the board has promised would be "tweaked" to allow earlier and better participation by parents on the selection'committee. Earlier this year parents at Lenox School had complained that their participation in selecting a new principal was "too little, too late." The advertising process for the position would probably begin in mid- to late winter, which is the typical time that candidates become available. In other business, the board discussed topics to be considered for its list of annual priorities. Most agreed the district should focus on better and more widespread' use of technology, particularly for classroom instruction. Board member Mary Jo O'Hagan suggested that the district get more "staff input regarding innovations they can use." Referring to the outlay of over $1.3 million over five years for enhancing the wide area network, she added, "We want creative ways to capitalize on that investment." Board member Mary Clark suggested that the district "get parents more involved," saying technology and the web site should be used "to get information to a greater number of people." Board member B.A. Schoen suggested that the district "continue to work to improve the tone in school and student conduct." He said, "We are not serving the future if graduates don't know how to conduct themselves."

Congresswoman McCarthy announces agenda by Carl Gordon With a wedge of North Merrick having been transferred to the 4th Congressional District as of January 1, 2003, and with parts of North Bellmore and Freeport already in the district, the incumbent Congresswoman, Carolyn McCarthy invited the local weekly newspapers to a progress meeting last week. On "hot button" items, Mrs. McCarthy reported that Congress is expected to meet in New York City on September 7 to remind people of last year's tragedy, since it seems to be dimming in some people's minds in other parts of the country. "Homeland Security is a long-term project, however," she said, referring to the fact that Congress has not acted on President George W. Bush's request for a new cabinet department. She deemed as "foolish" the push to have the new cabinet position in place by September 11. "We have a long way to go," she noted. For example, "Should the Army be allowed to arrest citizens?" is a question yet to be answered. 1 Regarding security in transportation, "We must make sure it is there," she said. "People must feel confident when they get on a plane." In the field of corporate responsibility, she reminded people that as August 14 approached, corporate executives must attest to the accuracy of their financial information. "There is a lot more at stake to restore consumer confidence," she said. Getting to the topics closer to her

heart, she.spoke of the "Our Lady of Peace Act" and the introduction into the House of Representatives of a bill she co-sponsored, "The Nurse Reinvestment Act." The proposed legislation would give magnet hospitals, those that have reorganized care to be more collaborative and patient-centered, and as a result, are able to attract more nurses, grants from $50,000 to $500,000. As an example, Mrs. McCarthy cited the collaboration between Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow and Nassau Community College, whereby professors from the college actually teach classes at the hospital so that student nurses can stay on the job. As a nurse, she explained the importance of nurses -being able to make up their own schedules. In the field of gun control, a bill has passed the House Judiciary Committee. Termed the "Our Lady of Peace Act," the bill is based on the

March 8 shooting of a priest, the Rev. Larry Penzes, and a parishioner, Eileen Tosner, during mass at Our Lady of Peace Church in Lynbrook, part of Congresswoman McCarthy's district,-by a disturbed man who would not have been allowed to buy a weapon if his entire history were known. The FBI had no knowledge of his record. The act would provide an incentive to states to automate and share disqualifying records with the FBI's National Instant Crime Background Check System (NICS)

database. H "The House Judiciary Committee c took the first step today in enforcing the gun laws already on the books, and by doing so, it will save lives," she said. She added that she had the support of the National Rifle 1 Association, the American Bar Association, the National Education Association, Americans for Gun Safety, the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence and the Brady to Campaign/Million Mom March in m sponsoring this measure.

Farm workers protest Fuchillo's office in Freeport from page 1

- The legislation would require (hat o C-l employers of farm laborers allow 24 eonseeulive hours of rest'each week (voluntary on the part of workers]; provide Cor an eight hour work day, for farm laborers, requiring overtime rale at one and one-half times normal rate; ensure that sanitary codes shall apply to all farm and food processing labor camps £3 intended to migrant workers, .e regardless of the number of occupants; require reporting of on the job injuries Di UJ and that owners must provide farm Q workers with claini forms for worker's compensation. "If you eat, you should support farm W workers," chanted the protestors, "we m feed the world." "What do we want?" asked one of the organizers. "We want a day of rest and overtime pay," replied the others. "When do we want it," asked the safrie man. "Now" they replied. The farm workers and (heir supporters marched down Ocean Avenue from Village Hall, east on Sunrise Highway and then west oh Sunrise Highway, ending up at Senator Fuschillo's office on South . Ocean Avenue. The farm workers were supported by.members of the Rural and Migrant Ministry,' Centre Independente Trabajors Agricolos [Independent Farmworker's Center], the Long Island Workplace Project in Herhpstead, Ihe. Long Island Progressive Coalition, New York State Labor-Religion Coalition and the Episcopal Diocese of New York. About thirty people attended the rally. "We are concerned about the exclusion of-labor rights to these workers," O

said Nadia Marin, Executive Director of the. Workplace Project. She added that most farm workers are Spanish speaking, "with an -increasing amount from Mexico or of Mexican extraction. The Department of Labor estimates that about 60% are documented [workers] in the United States because it is much easier to get a visa for this type of work." The United States Department of Labor also concludes that farm work is the second most dangerous occupation in the United States after mining. Within New York State, agriculture is a $3.1 billion industry. Farm workers are excluded from federal and state labor laws which began as far back as the 1935 National Labor Relations Act that provided the right to collective bargaining. This left the burden of fair treatment to the states/The New York State Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 gave other workers the right to overtime and a day of rest but excluded farm workers from labor rights by exempting "service on a farm" from the definition of what constitutes an employee. However, farm workers have made some progress. The Legislature has granted farm workers the same minimum wage standards and provided drinking water and toilets in the fields. A prepared statement from Senator Fuschillo's office said that "he is pleased with the significant progress that New York State has made to improve labor laws for farm and group workers such as the recent inclusion of farm workers in the minimum wage law, union organizing, and sweatshop prevention. He feels more needs to be done to address the liv-"!-. fr-

ing and working conditions of farm and group workers through issues such as collective bargaining, day of rest, an increase in the minimum wage, increasing workers compensation benefits and unemployment insurance reform. "As a member of the-New York State Senate Labor Committee, Senator Fuschillo has maintained an open dialogue with the Farm Bureau and farm workers to develop an overall comprehensive strategy that will address these important labor issues to improve the

living and working conditions for farm workers in New York State." But Father Witt believes more can be done for the farm workers right now. "The labor committee is blocking farm worker justice," he told the rally participants who had gathered in front of Senator Fuschillo's office. "We want them to respond to us. Quit saying we need to study [the issue] more; bring the legislation to the floor for a vote. The time is now, Senator, you can lead the way."

Board announces process from page 5 The definitions of legal and illegal absences have been clarified. The difficulty in creating the policy, 'however, centers on the issue of course credit. While districts again have the right to deny course credit for excessive absences, the problem is in explaining it precisely and implementing it equitably so that it would "be able to survive a legal challenge." Mr. Scannell questioned the wording imposed by state regulation, which states as part of the policy the goal of reducing absenteeism. Deputy Superintendent Lee Chapman noted that Baldwin's average attendance rate is 95 percent and at those high levels, it becomes difficult to reduce absenteeism. Mr. Scannell noted his opposition to having those words as part of the policy since "a district could have 100 percent attendance and yet the goal of improving attendance would still be part of the policy." The Baldwin School District has been meticulous in reviewing policies and keeping procedures which can change separate from the actual policy. In other business, the board approved the hiring of BOCES/Syntax Communications for public relations services at an annual fee of $49,500. This company will provide some of the public information services, such as preparation of the calenda'r and newsletters as well as other public relations activities, which have previously been the responsibility of Public Information Officer Trish Hughes, who is retiring at the end of the summer. The board also authorized the New York State Asssociation of School Business Officials to conduct a central office management study at a fee of $ 12,400 plus expenses. At spring budget hearings, it was noted that several key members of the central office staff are nearing retirement and the study would focus on the number of staff and allotment of time and resources to see if the present organizational structure is appropriate. The board approved the practice of donating excess food from the school district's cafeterias to the Interfaith Nutrition Network for distribution to people in need in Baldwin and the surrounding communities. Volunteers from

Bethlehem Lutheran Church will facilitate the process. Dr. Chapman, chairing the administration's portion of the meeting since Superintedent Kathy Weiss was onvacation, noted that there were 225 children in the elementary summer school in 17 classes and 460 students in the secondary summer school in 54 classes. There were 538 registered participants and over 100 teenage counselors in the Baldwin Summer Program, which is a cooperative venture with the schools. The district provides a $5000 stipend, insurance and space in inclement weather. The board . has instructed the Superintendent to study problems regarding high school graduation. This year, because of rain, the ceremony was abruptly cut short, causing significant criticism by members of the community on the lack of appropriate alternatives. While budgetary constraints would most likely prohibit any changes for June, 2003, the board wants the administration to study alternatives, including holding the ceremony at an off-district site.

As our nation becomes increasingly more Hispanic, the a^t World has correspondingly recognized the achievements of artists whose roots are in Central and South America, including Cuba, Colombia, Puerto Rico and Mexico. They have forged a unique Latin identity and have increasingly broughtHispanic art, music and dance into the North American mainstream. In "The Latin Century: Beyond the Border," the Nassau County Museum of Art (NCMA) explores this important cultural (rend. The exhibition of 20th-century works by Latin artists begins on Sunday, August 18 and continues through Sunday, November 3. Among the artists with works in the exhibition are Mexican artists Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Rufino Tamayo and Maria Izquierdo; Chile's Roberto Malta; Colombia's Fernand Bolero, Wifredc Lam, whose heritage is Afro/Asian/Cuban, and many others from throughout the Spanish-speaking, western hemisphere whose contributions have fueled the growing importance of and respect for Hispanic culture. The approximately 100 works on view in NCMA's "The Latin Century" reflect the wide diversity of Hispanic art during the 20th century. Various types of figu-

rative art are featured — realistic, hyperrealistic, surrealistic and expressionistic. Some works draw on the tradition of grotesque or macabre art. Others are inspired by indigenous themes and fables. These works span the personal to the political and the earnest to the erotic. This broad range of art encompasses the three generations of artists who brought Hispanic art into the mainstream. Among the works included in NCMA's "The Latin Century" are Wilfredo Lam's Femme-cheval, a 1957 oil on canvas; Frida Kahlo's SelfPortrait "Very Ugly," a 1933 fresco on. plaster board; Maria Izquierdo's drawing for Dream and Premonition, a 1947 pencil on tracing paper; Diego Rivera's Portrait of Corliss Lamont, an oil on canvas; and several monumental works by Fernand Bolero including Joachim Jean Aberbach and his F; 'mly, a 1970

monitered by security guards as Jacoby sang to them. Once he returned back to center stage, he got the audience involved in his performance by inviting a young boy wearing a Papa Roach T-shirt to sing with him. Jacoby also did a great job getting his fans excited who were sitting all the way up in the nosebleed seats. On a less extreme level, guitarist Jerry Horton, would stare into the eyes of the fans as he played his guitar like it was an extension of his body. Once Papa Roach left, the audience was so loud and excited from their amazing performance, yet disappointed because their set was done.

The Anger Management tour, which was featured at Jones Beach Theater on Friday, July 26, offered the best of rock and rap in one concert. Rappers Xzibit and Ludacris opened up the show to a venue that was barely even half filled, but once the. night grew older, Jones Beach was packed with 15,000 fans waiting to see Papa Roach and Eminem perform. Papa Roach burst onto the stage like they were fleeing something that endagered their lives. Lead singer Jacoby Shaddix immediately leaped into the crowd and ran into an audience of overly-excited fans that had to be

Things went a little differently when Eminem claimed the stage. While Papa Roach was energetic and very involved with the audience, it seemed that Eminem didn't even realize that there were people watching him. He was only on the stage by himself once as he sang his hit single "Stan." but other than that, he was always accompanied by a member of the rap group D-12, who also sang virtually every song with him, which covered up Eminem's voice. It was a little disappointing to realize that Eminem can't perform without someone else. On a positive side, rapper Jay-Z was a

surprise guest who performed a song c with Eminem. He also did get a chanee OQ to perform almost all of his hit singles and then some, hut thai is only because he performed all the songs without fully to O completing them. O It was evident to me that the energy to level went from high to dry once Papa H Roach left and Eminem took over. tfl Eminem did put on a good show, hu'l he definitely shouldn't have followed (he m > unbelievable performance of Papa a tn Roach. It looks like the real Slim Shady needs to lake some real advice from Papa Roach: It's not a bad thing if you look out into the audience. Try it sometime.

Beautiful skies and great weather greeted the six sailing boats that arrived at the Esplanade on Woodcleft Avenue in Freeport on Friday, August 9. This was the fifth consecutive visit by the six sailing boats which quickly became seven as an additional boat experienced mechanical problems and had to abandon plans to sail to Newport, Rhode Island and turned into Freeport on Saturday morning, to join the other ves-' sels from the United States Naval Academy.

FREEPORT FIREFIGHTERS at the scene of the Friday accident on Sunrise Highway.

photo by Bill Bennett

1 dead, 3 injured in Sunrise highway accident A Freeport woman was killer in an accident that occurred in Freeport on August 9 at 8:30 p.m. According to detectives, Thomas Devivio, 35, of Wantagh was operating a 1992 Honda eastbound on Sunrise Highway when he struck an unoccupied Ford Van that was parked along the curbside in Front o'f Pep Boys on Sunrise Highway in Baldwin. He left the scene and continued driving erratically. As he continued eastbound on Sunrise "Highway, his vehicle left the roadway and he proceeded to drive on the sidewalk where he struck a metal light pole. As he continued traveling, he struck a 1995 Ford Taurus that- was turning into the 7-11 (145 West Sunrise Highway, Freeport) from eastbound Sunrise Highway. The Ford was driven

by Jerrold Miller, 43, of Delaware Avenue, Freeport, and occupied by his wife Andrea Miller, 43, and their two children Morgan, 12, and Victoria, 9. Andrea Miller was transported to Nassau University Medical Center where she was pronounced dead by a staff physician. Jerrold Miller was transported and admitted to South Nassau Communities Hospital where he remains in critical condition with head and chest injuries. Morgan and Victoria Miller were transported to Nassau University Medical Center where they were treated ?nd released. Mr. Devivio was transported to Nassau University Medical Center for observation -where -he -was- arrested, and charged with Manslaughter 2nd Degree. He will be arraigned in First District Court, Hempstead.

immigration law. The center will be open xO primarily between 6 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.. Monday through Saturday, to all members H rr of the Freeport community, in particular c ^-t those looking for jobs. Various job-hunt- a. ing materials and services'will be available for those seeking work. The center will operate according to OQ C clear rules of conduct and a .system for assigning labor that the workers will develop lhemÂŤe!'.es. A Catholic Charities â&#x20AC;˘ employee will serve as the center's full- o o time coordinator, working with a . 10 Community Advisory Board that is in for- H X mation. m The center is the result of months of r planning and collaborative efforts on the en > part of the Village of Freeport. the O Freeport Community Development m Agency. Catholic Charities, and other groups in the community. Freeport is the third community on Long Island that has seen the benefits of such a center, joining Glen Cove and Huntington Station. The merits of these publicly-sponsored centers can he seen in more than 30 other communities across the country. State Attorney General Elliot Spitzer last year affirmed the legality of such centers while praising their nationwide success. Our church stands not only with immigrants and workers, hut for the common good of all in the community. This simple change of address is an example of common sense achieving the common good. The Mayor, village police. Catholic Charities, the community groups, and the workers all agree that the most important thing is to work together to make sure that .the center makes the village an even better community for all of its residents and visitors.

The following statement was released by Catholic Charities on the subject of day labor in Freeport: The Worklink Community Center of Freeport, operated by Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, is expected to open by the end of August. After months of extensive planning, the .-center -will relocate the current worker gathering place on Sunrise Highway to a site that is safer, cleaner, more well-organized, and more dignified. It has been our great pleasure at Catholic Charities to work in partnership with the Village of Freeport over the past year. We hope this center will be a model for the kind of equitable, tangible publicprivate collaboration that js necessary for the success oLsuch sites. We applaud the Village of Freeport's efforts to assemble public resources to match 'their political and moral commitment to viable solutions. For years, a group of approximately 100 men have gathered each morning in Freeport to secure day labor from contractors and homeowners. The combination of this large group and the disorganized How of traffic of those hiring them creates dangerous traffic conditions and storefront congestion on Sunrise Highway. These conditions will be relieved by the opening of the new site, which is located 4.5 blocks to the east of the existing gathering place, in an industrial section of the village between Sunrise Highway and the Long Island Rail Road tracks, directly across from Home Depot. The site will include a trailer with clean and appropriate facilities. The trailer will also house meeting space for the workers to gather for various educational programs such as ESL training, computer classes, jmd informational workshops on labor and


Andrea Miller remembered "Andrea Miller has always been a staunch advocate of quality child care. For many years she has sat on the board of Hr-Hello Child Care. She was also a tremendous supporter of not merely quality child care, but of the institution's accreditation by both the ACA (American Camping Association) and NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children). She recently served as a facilitator in our Long Island Child Care Provider Training Program.

"Andrea's training as a Registered Nurse was reflected in her important involvement with personnel, health and safety and family medical issues here at Hi-Hello. Her involvement in so many aspects of our mission has been one important key to our success. Andrea Miller will be sorely missed, and we deeply mourn her passing."
