parts of Freeport, Baldwin and Wantagh as the first woman ever elected to the 19th Assembly District seat in the state Legislature. She resigned her position as the first woman Town Clerk, and was"'replaced by her deputy clerk,-Phil Guarnieri, who is the acting Town Clerk. Supervisor-Murray will face the voters in November. The Town Board vote to elect her was 5-1, with the lone dissenting vote coming from Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby, the only Democrat, who objected to the selection process. She. asserted that the decision was actually made in advance by the county Republican leader, Joe'Mondello. Ms. Murray said she was elected "pursuant .to state law, which dictates the process. The Town Board appoints the Supervisor" when there is a vacancy before the genera! election. Ms. Murray said she plans to cooperate with Ms. Goosby on projects for her district, which includes much of Freeport. She plans to "keep us fiscally sound," and work on road, park and other infrastructure improvement plans. She noted that many town buildings are 50-60 years

The Hempstead Town Board recently appointed former Town Clerk and state Assemblywoman Kate Murray "as the town's Supepvisor, replacing Rich .Guardino who resigned that day. She told this newspaper she is "very excited" about her plans for the town. "I am honored and privileged to be named the Supervisor of America's largest township," the new town chief executive said after her swearing-in by Judge Denise Scher. "I look forward to working with all the council members in a bi-partisan fashion for the benefit of each and every community in the Town of Hempstead." She added, "I intend; to maintain and, where possible, expand the excellent services, programs and facilities that distinguish our town as a top notch municipal government... Affordable housing is another vital imperative for Hempstead Town. We need to do everything within our power to make it possible for seniors and young people to remain in the Town of Hempstead."

Streetscaping includes general improvements such as new facades,; lighting and •: flower planters. One such project is planned for Merrick Avenue near Chatterton School, and another on Merrick Road in Baldwin. Improvements are also planned at Guy Lombardo Marina in Freeport. Speaking o{ these projects, which are "in almost every community," Ms. Murray said she is "very excited about the level of activity. We want to help our communities help themselves. I want .to be Kate. very aggressive with these improvements."v She told this newspaper, "I have good working relations with the residents of your readershipiarea." She plans to "get the best benefit for the tax dollar while continuing programs to improve the town's infrastructure."

Since the town is in "good shape" financially, she thinks the town can '.absorb state aid cuts but will work • to avoid them through the local state legislators.. Supervisor Murray said she "absolutely" will continue Mr. Guardino's support of the Levy Park and Preserve in Merrick and has "a strong commitment to the environment." Asked about the continuing legal battle over the Merrick Road Park golf course clubhouse, she said she wants "to return it back to the resMurray idents. I hope the whole issue can be resolved. We have aggressively pursued our rights through litigation, and hope to have it resolved shortly." The new Supervisor promised a "head-to-toe review of all of our projects and issues."

At the request of residents of midBaldwin, the Town of Hempstead Town Board adjourned a scheduled February 25 hearing that concerned a request to rezone two parcels of property, until April 22. The applicants, Sonku Enterprises, Inc, and Lewis Okin, are seeking" to "swap properties," on Mill Road in Baldwin. In order for the swap to happen, however, it is necessary to rezone one parcel from Residence "B" and "Business Districts" to Residence "CA" and to rezone the other parcel from Residence "C-A" District to "Business District." The reason for the swap is to allow Mr. Okin to construct a 5,000 square foot plumbing supply warehouse on Mill Road. Mr. Okin has tried to construct a warehouse for several years. The idea to swap the properties developed several years ago'when a different proposal was rejected by residents. ' . . This swap would convey the parcel at the west- which is owned by Mr. Okin and on which there is a delapidated residential building to Sonku Enterprises •and the residence would be renovated and maintained. The remainder of that property would be incorporated into the parking field for the existing garden apartments. The other property to the east of that house, which is owned by Sonku Enterprises, would then be swapped, rezoned and used by Mr. Okin for the warehouse. In addition, the applicants agreed to six conditions concerning landscaping, fencing, the placement of doors and windows; as well as limited hours of operation. Some residents are concerned about the daily.use of an active warehouse on a portion of the street that has served as a buffer between Merrick Road and Milburn Avenue businesses and residences. In addition, according to resident Martha Meyer, the letter outlining the conditions was only received on February 15. Residents had not been able to meet during the winter holiday recess week to discuss the issue with their attorney, Baldwin resident Jill Sandhaas Martinez, who was not able to be present at the February 25 hearing. There was also confusion as to whether the proposed warehouse would be one or two stories. Mrs. Meyer told The Leader that she and her husband John are particularly

concerned about how the condition to limit warehouse delivery to the hours between 8 a.m. and 7. p.m. Monday through Saturday could ever be enforced. She said'that she and her husband lake a walk early each morning, sometimes before 7 a.m., and truck activity at the Green Art Plumbing showroom on Merrick Road, the retail portion of the business, has frequently already begun. She said that there are trucks on the sidewalk as well as trucks double park'ed. It is not infrequent that traffic on Merrick Road is stopped by trucks trying to maneuver for deliveries. Unlike Merrick Road which is four lanes wide, Mill Road is.a" narrow street that was not included in recent Town of Hempslead street TRUCKS PARKED ON SIDEWALKS and double parked on Merrick Road are.a concern to res; improvements.

Bishop Murphy places Baldwin priest on leave by Joan Delaney At weekend masses, parishioners in St. Christopher's parish in Baldwin were urged to take home a church bulletin and to read a special insert. There they . learned that Father Michael A. Carroll, a chaplain at .Mercy-Medical Center who lives at St. Christopher's rectory, had been placed on administrative leave, effective February 26, by Bishop William Murphy. It appears that the.leave is occasionedby a past .situation which was resolved but which is being reviewed again given the current climate 4n the church and

present diocesan guidelines. In the notice, signed by Pastor Monsignor John F. Bennett and Associate . Pastors Father Brran MeQuade and Father Robert Kuznik, it was noted that it was only Father Carroll's responsibilities at Mercy Medical Center that limited his availability for celebrating Mass and administering the sacraments at St. Christopher's. It continued, "We are nevertheless anxious to honestly share this information with you, albeit with • great-hurt," and stresses, "We assure you that his-ministry as Chaplain at Mercy Medical Center, and his- living in our

parish, .has been faithful and exemplary in every respect." Also explained was the nature of an administrative leave. In such instances, the case is reviewed by the Diocesan Committee established by the bishop. The letter points out that "Pastoral compassion and • justice demand that any such situations be thoroughly examined, even over again - with full attention and concern for anyone involved, and thorough consideration for the personal integrity and rights of every priest." " It was expected that Father Carroll's case would be studied for the next se'v• era! weeks before the committee makes its recommendation to the bishop. While the review is in process, Father Carroll must refrain from public priestly ministry and will be living with his parents.

The letter concludes: "Our prayer is that this very painful situation will be resolved as quickly as is just and reasonable, and that healing and peace will be found for all parties concerned." Referring to the onset of the Lenten season, it notes. "Perhaps as never before, this Lenten season calls all of us to conversion and renewal, repentance, and purification, healing and forgiveness." It concludes with the request that parishioners "Please pray for Father Michael and his parents; please pray for' all of us who serve you as priests here at St. Christopher's." a request reaffirmed during the pastor's discussions with The Leader. Diocesen priests take vows of celibacy and obedience to the bishop.

Freeport Chamber of Commerce February meeting by Bill and Norma Braun Dea Buckley, Promotional Vice President of General Electric, in charge of Long Term Care Programs, was the guest speaker at Montana Restaurant, 13 Atlantic Avenue, Freeport, for the February Freeport Chamber meeting. Ms. Buckley, a former member of the Freeport Chamber, addressed many longtime Freeport friends as she spoke of the advantages of long term care insurance. "Long term care can help protect your assets, help maintain your financial freedom and give you the options necessary to receive quality home health care. As we get older, the chance of needing long term care becomes greater. Accidents and illnesses can happen to everyone, often with no

warning. "The average cost of -a nursing home stay is almost $56,000 and can run much higher. Home health care is also costly, averaging $36,000 per year. You could spend much of your life savings paying for care. "Options are few. Family and friends might care for you, but have they the time, and can they provide the type of care you need? - and do you want this of them?" Ms. Buckley presented an affordable option and suggests interested people contact her for more information on a long term care insurance plan by G.E. Capital Life Assurance Co. of New York at 481-7130.

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

Together we prepare by James Green, American Red Cross Preparedness and vigilance are the hallmarks of our new national reality. Making our communities safe must be a priority. Planning for disaster is an essential step toward preparedness. Families, businesses and schools - everyone needs to know what to do and where to go in case of a disaster. Whether evacuating or "sheltering in place" (staying where you are), having a disaster supplies kit with food, first aid supplies, medicines and more saves lives. , The American Red Cross has unveiled a sweeping new national effort to prepare our country in case of disaster or national emergency. The American Red Cross in Nassau County has joined more than 1,000 American Red Cross chapters, Blood Services regions and Armed Forces Emergency Services stations nationwide in working to make the United States safer from disaster through the "Together We Prepare" campaign. While the scope of the program is national, its focus is on individuals and how every person can help prepare for disaster. The idea is to make homes, neighborhoods and communities safer. The heart of the "Together We Prepare" campaign is five important actions to prepare for disaster: (1) make a plan, (2) build a kit, (3) get trained; (4) volunteer and (5) give blood. These five actions can help us protect our loved ones and ourselves. To succeed in this campaign, the Red Cross hopes to educate and inspire people to help. Knowing what to do by getting trained and helping others prepare by volunteering is important. There are many needs in Nassau County and the Red Cross is committed to helping our community prepare for anything. You, too, can be proactive. Consider volunteering or taking a first aid course. By caring for one another, a community can overcome anything. Harriette P. Thayer, Chairman of the Board for th'e American Red Cross in Nassau County, put it best: "I have lived in this community for 29 years and I know Nassau County residents will respond to the call to work together to make our community safer. People want to help - they are just looking for the opportunity to do so." In January alone, our local Red Cross responded to numerous disasters - from house fires to neighborhood evacuations - and assisted approximately 330 people. This time, the Red Cross wants to help you and your neighbors make us all safer by getting everyone to take these five actions before disaster strikes. When we come together, we become something bigger than us all. The Red Cross asks you to take this message to heart. More information on 'Together We Prepare" and its five actions, including how to make a plan, build a kit, get trained, volunteer and give blood, are available by calling the American Red Cross in Nassau County at 747-3500, e-mailing info @NassauRedCross.org or visiting www.NassauRedCross.org.

Roslyn Hirschfeld

Roslyn Hirschfeld, a long time Freeport resident, died on Sunday, February 23, after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. Mrs. Hirschfeld lived in the Meister Beach section of Freeporl from the late .1950s until the early 1980s -when she moved to Coconut Creek, Florida. She was the wife of the late Julius Hirschfeld. She is survived by her daughter and sonin-law Elaine and Leon Groder of Freeport and her son and daughter-in-law Eugene and Gabriela Hirschfeld of Orlando and Frankfurt, Germany. Her grandchildren are Randi Berry of Freeport, Jeffrey Groder of Seaford and Stephanie and Leslie Hirschfeld of Orlando.

just writ© loy joan dolonoy A POIGNANT COINCIDENCE... At the February Baldwin Board of Education meeting, the first discussion of the district's new policy on hazing took place. -After the meeting, I spoke to Superintendent Kathy Weiss and told her how appropriate it was that Baldwin was formulating an official policy on this practice. Over two decades ago, the Baldwin Council of PTAs and its member units were very involved in lobbying legislators to make hazing illegal and to have it defined as a crime. The impetus for this PTA effort came

from a former PTA Council President, the late Nancy Coughlin, who-was a personal friend of Eileen Stevens, formerly of Baldwin. Ms. Stevens' son, Chuck Stenzel, had died as a result of a college hazing incident. Because of that, Ms. Stevens spoke at colleges and pleaded with legislators in an attempt to make people understand that hazing wasn't just some harmless college prank. Hazing, she stressed, was a violent act that- was perpetrated on vulnerable young -adults who were seeking to belong and who thought that they were

in the presence of friends. Hazing was causing deaths. During subsequent years, I occasionally he_ard Ms. Stevens speak on radio shows. Eventually she met with success both in terms of changing the legal definition of hazing as well as the perception of hazing. To.day, dangerous hazing practices such as requiring fraternity pledges to drink excessive alcohol, to be locked in the trunk of a car, to be thrown into ponds or lakes, or to be dumped partially clothed in unfamiliar areas in sub-freezing temperatures, are all now-

seen as violent practices rather than as "just having some fun." The Board of Education meeting took VIQ. place on Wednesday, February 12. On SB Monday, February 24.1 was reading the obituaries in Newsday when 1 came 8: 3 upon a Memoriam. "In Loving Memory of Chuck Stenzel "6/15/57-2/24/78 O o Twenty-five years without you.

Speaking before a large group of students and teachers, Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy shared her difficulties as well as her achievements as she bestowed her February School of the Month award on Meadow Elementary School .in Baldwin. "I found it hard to learn as a child,", she said, and described her dyslexic struggles with both reading and writing. "I don't mind talking about it," she said, adding that the process she follows now is hard work. "I had to train my staff in how to work with me to accommodate how I learn." The Congresswoman described the lengthy period of time she takes in the evenings and then again when she rises at 5 a.m. to read the background materials she needs for the next day. This year

she will also serve on the Finance Committee, a task she said that will require a lot of learning. "It's like being in college, learning every day." Describing her studying routine, she said, "I try to memorize everything I can," and then showed the students the cards she carries which highlight important points. Relating her own learning difficulties • to the youngsters, she stressed, "You must be true to yourself and believe in yourself. You are the future for this country. Do your homework. Everything you do pays off. I'm proud of all of you." Referring to her first run for Congress in 1996. she said, "People said I couldn't do it, but I tried. I thought (hat even if I failed, at least I would have tried." Then she added, "And I think I've learned a lot during the time I've been a congresswoman."

lottors Response to John Helfrich To The Leader: It was with considerable dismay that I CO read your rather flamboyant and quite illO informed letter to the editor. Surely, I can appreciate your concern about the issue of gang activity in Freeport. It concerns' -C all Freeporters. However, I do not appreciate your literary style, as it is not warranted. I suggest that you should do a litcS tle "hard research" before proffering 1 some of the statements that you feel jus3 tified in making. And again, for whatevH er ill-founded reasons, you have singled ' me out. You obviously have some per•w sonal issues regarding me that you need Q to work through. If you had taken the < W time to ask me or other officials in the village regarding my position on gangs, W you might have been quite surprised and considerably embarrassed. First. The fact is, Mr. Helfrich, that I have openly and repeatedly expressed my concern, about gang activity in Freeport. The fact is that I was one of the motivating forces behind the formation of a task force both to critically examine this problem and to seek some actions that might lessen the impact upon our community and schools. The fact is that I have been so outspoken about this problem that I have received considerable criticism by certain figures for being what they construe as an "alarmist" regarding gangs in Freeport. The fact is that gangs are a very real issue in / Freeport and many other communities on both the north and south shores of Long Island. It is a problem that I neither take lightly nor turn away from. Second. I have never stated that "all our troubles revolve-around lazy parents." That statement .is a grossly unfair and sleazy misrepresentation of my stated notion that parents have a role in and impacj upon the' academic success or failure of their children - a notion that would be agreed upon by any intelligent individual. How dare you take that comment and apply it towards your fallacious and flagrantly inaccurate commentary about gangs and the school board's supposed dismissal of the problem? For your information, the fact is that the school board has in the past and continues to have very considerable concern regarding gang activity. The fact is that the Superintendent of Schools chairs the task force on gang activity. Moreover, that' very task force also'has regular representation and participation frorn both Mr. Ellerbe and me. Last. 1 take personal umbrage to your disgraceful characterizations of my thoughts regarding certain issues. They are outrageously inaccurate in their con-

© editor lent and unfair to me as a concerned resident and official of our community. I suggest either- that either you have the decency to get your facts right or that you abstain from indulging yourself'in misconceptions regarding both me and

'the Board of Education. Further. I suggest if you are so concerned --.so fervent about these issues, consider jumping in and becoming active in doing something of substance, rather than silling in the dark and taking "cheap shols" al those

who are in the struggle. Again Mr. Helfrich - too often you are but "sound and fury, signifying nothing!" Joseph A. Cattano. Ph.D. VP Freeport Board of Education

Residents tell mayor "the gangs are all here" by Jim Golding Gang violence and the recent incidents and shootings taking place Sunday in Freeport dominated much of the discussion at Monday's village Board meeting as some residents voiced their concerns about the issue." Donella Williams, Alan Jay, Georgia Prunty, Douglas Mayers and Gabriel Rossano questioned what actions the village is taking and offered suggestions on dealing with the gang problem. "I'm concerned about the increased crime and concerned about the downtown area," said Ms. Williams. Freeport Police Chief Michael Woodward explained that the perpetrators of the shootings on Sunday were not .Freeport residents and that his department continues its investigation of the incident. He noted that overall crime in Freeport has dropped by about 27 percent over the past five years, "but the perception of gang violence is very urgent. We're doing everything we can," Chief Woodward said. This includes police officers visiting "the homes of suspected gang members, meeting with parents to educate them on what they can do to prevent their children from joining gangs," and going to the schools to speak with students and educators. But he added that, "if you remove every gang, our community would be no safer." He later explained to The Leader that he referred to gangs who come to Freeport from outside the area, including Brooklyn and Manhattan, but that the erroneous perception is they're Freeport-based. Mr. Jay questioned the effectiveness of having police officers attend conference on dealing wiftf gangs. "I'd like to see the Freeport and Hempstead -gangs busted," he said. Mr. Jay also spoke at length about the gang problem at the national level, which he said was not dealt with by the Clinton administration. Ms. Prunty said Freeport officials need to change the perception "of what The village is turning into," citing gang violence, reports of shootings and fires resulting from overcrowded conditions by illegal aliens. "The perception is this is turning into Mexico," she said. Mr. Rossano asked how the village is dealing with cleaning up graffiti stemming from gang activity. Mayor William F. Glacken replied the policy for the cleanup of public property is to paint over the affected area, and to notify property owners. "So we just paint over the problem instead of addressing it," replied Mr. Rossano. Mr. Mayers, head of the local NAACP chapter, urged officials to "get ministers and clergy involved in dealing with the gang problem." He also asked about the village's future plans for making more affordable public housing available to alleviate overcrowding. Mayor Glacken replied that the village has "a handful of vacant lots that are usable," and that village officials are looking for a developer who would build additional housing. The Mayor also heard a tirade of complaints about village debt from businessman Peter Norris, and that the village deficit, which has shrunk from $10 million to $5 million, according to village statistics, did not reflect the true-debt amount. Mr. Norris cited a state Comptroller's report that Freeport has a debt of more than $62 million, but that the figure

could be above "$113 million, if the power plant costs are figured in. But the mayor responded, "Don't you ' see the difference between financing capital improvements and financing the deficit?" The mayor said the figures Norris cited were for capital improvements that are paid over the useful life of the particular improvement. "You have made several misstatements and you know they are misstate-

ments," the mayor told Norris. "You don't pay for a road all in one year, you pay for it over the useful life of the improvement," Mr. Glacken continued. He said such improvements are "necessary and proper and paid off over time." But Mr. • Norris claimed that the improvements are being done all at once and have plunged the village into more debt. In other actions, trustees awarded an

McCarthy comes to Baldwin from page 5 including 80 special education youngsters and 30 children in the English as a Second Language program, was selected for honor by the Congresswoman because of its Character Education Program that was funded through a maxi-grant provided by the Baldwin Foundation for Education. CJ Sometimes haltingly, Congresswoman McCarthy read the •O citation which enumerated the school's achievements and told the youngsters she would also read the proclamation "in the well of the Capitol building." She noted that the Meadow program PQ Q ' focuses on a different character trait < each month - responsibility, cooperaW tion, respect, generosity, persistence, PJ tolerance, honesty, forgiveness, and self-discipline. She added, "Getting along with others is important. It is good preparation down the road." She stressed how hard she works to "get along with both sides of the aisle." In commenting on the speeches she gives, she said, "I find it hard to talk to people but it's important because I want (hem- to understand where I'm coming from. A lot of people don't agree with me, but I try to explain." After the presentation, the Congresswoman answered a wide range of questions posed by the youngsters. In response to the question, "What was the hardest thing you ever had to do in your life?" she hesitated briefly, and then said, "Talking like this. I was always the shyest person in the room and it was always hard for me to talk to large groups. But I (earned to do it because it was important." She spdk'e about caring for people as a ;;< "nar'§Wadding that her work now is "like nursing, only I have more patients." She described her activities on the Education Committee which she lobbied to be on because, she said, she believes so strongly in the importance of education. In fact, she devotes each Monday to visiting schools when she is home oh Long Island. She also described the increasing breadth of her experiences, saying that during the recent Congressional recess she had gone to England and Ireland to speak to officials there about the Irish peace process. "I met Mr. Tony Blair in London, Gerry Adams in Dublin, Mr. Trimble [David Trimble, 2001 co-winner of the Nobel Peace Prize] in Belfast," and as- she spoke she seemed almost in awe of her emerging international role. "Why did you become a

s

Congresswoman?" she was asked and again she hesitated. She whispered to Principal Joan Flatley, shook her head gently and then began to speak. "I had some ideas about things I felt were .important...You push yourself to be able to do things when they are important.". Later she touched briefly on her work concerning gun violence and its'links to drop outs, drugs., alcohol, and deaths. She noted, "I ran on the issue of gun violence and I've had a number of victories in Congress on this." "Are you rich?" asked one boy to the amusement of the group. "I'm richer than I used to be," she commented, "but I still buy a lottery ticket every Saturday.", Describing her legislative priorities, she noted how hard she was working to ensure Social Security benefits for everyone, adding, "I'm going to need it." Later as she visited several classrooms and spoke to youngsters she com1 . merited to those adults walking with her that she fully understood the problem of communities like Baldwin and the burden of the high taxes they pay. "I told the children I was richer now, but I know how high taxes are. I pay $9,000 on the house I have in Mineola which I inherited from my parents, and I have to rent a studio in Washington." In some ways the petite Congresswoman seemed much like any . mother and grandmother. She was relaxed and informal and for someone who finds public speaking difficult she was glib with youngsters in the classroom. Speaking to one class whose students were "studying Abraham Lincoln, she related their lesson to the Character Education Program. "You know Lincoln was very tall, and people probably made fun of the^way he looked. But I am so proud of all of you and how respectfully you treat each other." Somewhat wistfully, Mrs. McCarthy listed the one negative of her position. "I" don't get enough time to be with my family, but I block out Sunday afternoons." Then casually talking with the. adults accompanying her on her class • visitations, she described- a late day. of vote-taking and work that had delayed her being able to telephone and chat with her grandchildren, Grace and Denis. "I called them on the cell phone from the floor of Congress, which we're not . supposed to do, and told them to ask their mother to turn on C-SPAN. Then I waved to them. My colleagues wondered whoT was waving at. Later my daughter-in-law told me that the chil* dren were so excited and kept saying, 'Look, Grandma's on'television!'"

from page 5 gathering I asked Superintendent Kathy Weiss what was learned at a meeting she attended on Friday, February 14, when superintendents from Long Island listened 1 to a representative from SEMA, the State Emergency Management Agency. At the February Board meeting, parents had asKed the Board what precautions were being taken in view, of the heightened warnings regarding terrorism. At that time. Dr. Weiss explained the district's already existing procedures and their state mandated emergency response plan. After the meeting with SEMA, however,"Dr. Weiss said she was particularly pleased that Baldwin already had virtually every one of their suggestions in place. She attributed the comprehensiveness of the district's plan to the close association the schools have with the Baldwin

Fire Department, particularly with Jerry Brown, and the assistance they provided. They helped the district fine-tune its plan and procedures. She noted that Baldwin has had several different types of emergency speed response drills over recenf years. The Baldwin Fire . Department also has blueprints of all of the buildings and much time has been spent studying them. Specifically regarding terrorism, however,-Dr Weiss noted that just like they were on September 11, 2001, "We. are prepared to keep youngsters in school if it ever became necessary." The one new idea they heard was the suggestion to stock upr on bottles of drinking .water.as well as barrels of water for toilets in case the regular water systems aren't working. At the Board meeting she did urge residents to "Make sure your child's emergency cards are accurate and up to date." • -
