FREEPORT'S NEW GEM is the permanent home of The New Visions Museum School, which until now was housed in classrooms leased from Our Holy Redeemer. The school is on Raynor Street, just west of Main Street, so take a look yourself! WORK IN PROGRESS! The school taking shape last summer. CONSTRUCTION IS FINISHING on the school's gym/auditorium.

To The Leader: I would like to thank everyone who supported me during my campaign for village trustee. While I did not win, I enjoyed meeting and speaking with many Freeport residents over the past few months. During the campaign, I encouraged those who expressed concerns to attend trustee meetings and voice their opinions to our elected officials. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Bill White and .Don Mauersberger on their victories. I expect that during their next four years as village trustees that the decisions that they make will he in the best interests of the people of Freeport. • My campaign focused on the rapid increase in village property taxes and long-term debt. I also focused on other issues, such as gang violence, over-ocupancy, the homeless, affordable housing, substance abuse, loitering, noise pollution, water pollution, littering, snow removal, special interest groups and selective code enforcement. These issues need to be addressed and I will continue to do so. Freeport is a great vijlage to live in, and I look forward, as a member of the community, lo~~continue working to improve the quality of lile for each and every resident of this village. I urge residents to speak up, get involved and let their voices be heard - either through civic groups, churches or other community affiliations. —\ James Caracciolo

Where will we park? no exeptions for mini-golf To The Leader: Why a special permit for the new miniature golf? If you drove down Woodcleft Avenue this past -Saturday, the village parking across from JC Cove was almost full. This is only the very being of the season and in another month every parking lot and side street will be filled with cars. I do not understand how the new miniature golf course got a special permit not to provide parking on their site. How do the people that live on Ocean Avenue feel? The state requires one parking spot per 400 square

feet and handicapped access. With this new miniature golf course will there be restrooms or. do they have a special arrangement with the restaurant, neighbors and other establishments to use their facilities? I think a miniature golf course.on Ocean Avenue is a nice idea, if parking and restrooms are provided on site. In the summer it would be nice to take the children for ice cream and a game of miniature golf. The parking will be a problem in this area. This should be looked at very carefully before, not after the place is built. 1 do not know how to drive this issue, but the parking is not something yo'u should putter around with. Lida La Brie

Good job to all, keep on with gang problem To The Leader: That was an excellent front page article and reporting by Jim Golding in the recent Leader (Village Board Di.tcn.ixex Reritalization and Gangs, March 27). I want to particularly highlight and commend the statements from our Police Chief Michael Woodward as he emphasized that there is preventive activity currently and aggressively underway on the gang affiliation matter here in conjunction with our Freeport School District, PTAs and the civic associations here in Freeport including a.home visitation outreach program, and also certain Nassau County organizations. That is great news. I didn't know that, and I think most people in town didn't know that. Good job to all. Keep on keeping on, please! I want to carry forward my exhortation and exceptional strong encouragement to our Board of Education and school administration (and parents and students) in my Letter to the Editor in the March 20 Leader for improved test scores and improved educational performance in our middle school and high . school, similar to the excellent performance that was just reported in all four of •our elementary schools. Several thousand of our children and young adults are involved. It is so very important to allow, encourage, and motivate all our students to that feeling of success that one can

Freeport also worries about flood at plant To The Leader: In the March 27 edition of The Leader, Power Plant Update n\ was said to have "criticized" the new proposed

Freeport Power Plant 2 project because it is "subject to a possible hurricane disaster." This information about disaster at Freeport Power Plant 2 came from The Village of Freeport's floodplain management and mitigation plan. This plan relates to Federal Emergency Management, FEMA flood insurance, and waterfront revitali/ation. The plan is a community's agreement to adopt and enforce floodplain management in order to lessen the impact disasters have on people and property, particularly with respect to new construction. It is an important element in making flood insurance available to homes and business owners in Freeport. What is described as an "extreme case" by Mr.' Bianco is actually the specific focus of the entire Floodplain management plan, which by design specifically recognizes 'potential impacts to the Village of Freeport. both environmental and economic.

Freeport schools: $3M aid reduction; board may hit nine by Jim Golding Trustees present $105M budget for new academic year • School district officials unveiled a proposed $105.2 million budget for the 2003-04 school year at their March 26 monthly meeting, where a proposition also was introduced to increase the number of trustees from the present five to nine. The budget is $6.77 million, or nearly 7 percent higher than that of the current year. Assistant Superintendent for Business Kishore Kuncham reviewed the administrative and program components of the budget, which will again be discussed, along with the $11.6 million capital component, at the board's April 9 planning meeting. Voters will decide on the final budget on May 20. Mr. Kuncham noted that several reductions were made and the budget is $1.03 million less than originally planned. Mr. Kuncham noted that Freeport is "the lowest in per pupil spending of any school district" in Nassau County and ranked 55th out of the 56 districts in the county in revenues from property taxes. He also said the district lost more than $2.6 million in state aid in 2002 and would be losing about $3.6 million in aid this coming fiscal year. Most'of the increases in the proposed budget are for salaries, contracts and additional staffing. Administrative component The largest increase in the $12.9 million administration budget is for employee benefits, $1.96 million, about

$473,000 more than last year, or about 31.7 percent higher. Other special items account for a $124,000 increase. The budget for the Board of Education drops by 13.7 percent. $32,073 or nearly $5,100 below the current year's total. The administrative component includes board of education, district clerk, superintendent's office, finance, legal services, personnel, public information, curriculum, development and supervisors, supervision for regular school and special schools, and other central services. Program component This represents the largest portion of the budget - a proposed $81 million, which is a 6 percent increase, or $4.6 million above the current year. Budget items include employee benefits, teacher salaries, textbooks, supplies, in-service training, instructional equipment and media, special schools, pupil personnel services and legal services. Nearly $41 million is budgeted for salaries, a 3.5 percent increase. Employee benefits lake $11.49 million, a 14.7 percent increase. The third highest program expense is for children with disabilities and their teachers' salaries at $13.7 million, a 10.6 percent increase. Capital component This portion of the budget consists of about $11.16 million; a $1.32 million increase over the 2002-03 amount. It includes funding for operations and maintenance, utilities, employee benefits, debt service, bond issue payment, interest and inter-fund transfers for capital projects.

Spring is here! Early spring vegetables have arrived. If you want the tastiest vegetables, you'll have to grow your own -and the time to start is NOW!

Employee benefits lolal $1.18 million, an increase of $378,968. or 46.7 percent over the current year. Debt service would increase by 34.9 percent to $2.96 ' million. About half the capital component, nearly $5.94 million, covers operations and maintenance. Proposition to increase size of board Two audience members. Peter Morris and Gabriel Razzano. discussed a proposition authored by Stewart Lilker that calls for increasing the number of board members to nine. "We need to get more thinking minds on the board to sort through this muddled mess." said Mr. Norris. "Taxes are going through the roof, the teachers are upset. We need to gel some control here."

Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Neoconservative, neoliberal? Reportedly, the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan had two framed magazine covers in his Senate offices. One, from 1979, The Nation, labeled him a "neoconservative." The other, from 1981, The New Republic, called him a neoliberal. At least, the good Senator, who died last week, appreciated the jokes life can play on you. Other opposing descriptions, bestowed on him in his lifetime: "patrician" and "raised in poverty"; "scholarly" and "pragmatic." He was praised for defending Israel and criticized for failing to protect East Timor. His predictions of the breakup of the Soviet Union were hailed as prescient, while his analysis of the Black family in crisis was misused by others in a "blame the victim" strategy. One of this newspaper's writers fell asleep during one of his long speeches to the National Newspaper Association. Another found his voluminous report comparing slate contributions to the federal coffers to be a strong argument for more federal dollars for New York. But did it change the minds of many non-New Yorkers? It's doubtful. Even 9/11 did not do that. Still, he was beloved on both sides of the aisle and often called the "Republican's Democrat." Perhaps seeing something of himself in Senator Moynihan, Congressman Pete King said, "Pat Moynihan was a legend, a Renaissance man, and it was a privilege to work with him in Washington. He was an independent spirit who personified the American dream because he grew up in a poor neighborhood,, yet reached the very pinnacle. He was a strong defender of the United States, a strong defender of Israel. He was as intelligent and intellectual a senator as we've ever had, armed with great knowledge while at the same time as down-to-earth a guy as there was, with a good sense of the world around him. He was pretty much Jefferson-like, and he appreciated art, architecture, the classics, history and diplomacy. He was in a class by himself. He taught me." State Senator Charles Fuschillo called him "a true icon and a great American. He always felt that public service was the highest calling we could achieve, and he was certainly the example to live by. He rose to become a true statesman, a position we all strive for but very few of us get. The late Senator taught us all a lesson that we were put here to give back to the people around us, and to make our home a better place. He's the best example of how to give back. It's just very sad to lose someone who was part of the American way." New generations of New Yorkers will learn his name when they use the new Penn Station, for which he worked so hard, because as Governor George Pataki and Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently declared, "Although his endearing humility .would never have permitted this while he lived, we will honor his larger-than-life dreams and their 'ultimate realization, by naming the Daniel Patrick Moynihan Station in his memory." This writer remembers seeing Senator Moynihan in person only once, while waiting for passengers at LaGuardia Airport. A television hews camera crew was also obviously waiting for someone. The Senator, walking along down the ramp, greeted them all by name in a friendly, natural manner as he passed by. Actually, they were waiting for someone else.

J°on HOMO SAPIENS .... Last week, I went on the second of five museum trips that • I have signed up to attend. With the war in progress, I took particular notice of the various check-points-. I was surprised by the lack of a significant police presence at the Throgs Neck Bridge but later disconcerted by police inspections of unmarked trucks and larger vehicles along Central Park West and 96th street. At the American Museum of Natural History, there were three special exhibits - one on archeological digs in northern Spain where human remains that are one million years old have been found, one on Einstein, and one on Vietnam. With war on my mind, perhaps I was especially attuned to similarities, certain links across the span of time. Our pre-historic ancestors had limited thinking skills, without the ability to

abstract. Yet, already, these primitive beings had learned to construct and carve out tools and weapons for food that was both animal and human. Yes, these early people are believed to have engaged in cannibalism. The presentation on Einstein was fascinating. Even those of us who are intimidated by such high-level science came away with an appreciation of the imagination that could conceive these astounding theories. But for most of us. the descriptions of Einstein, the man, were of greater interest. Although Einstein enjoyed great celebrity, he concluded his life regretting an action he called his greatest mistake. This was a letter he wrote to President Franklin D. Roosevelt advocating an escalation in scientificresearch to fight World War II. His urg-

ing played a great part in the decision of the United States to enter the nuclear arms race, a mammoth step-up in survival responses from the weapons of our ancestors of one million years ago. And finally there was Vietnam, the country whose people were beset by what they call the 11-year American War which followed their years of conflict with the French. Upon entering the exhibit, the point of the presentation is clear. Words on a banner proclaim. "Life is a journey of ritual passages." Despite the horrors of decades of violence, rituals survived and life endured. The exhibit shows these activities in colorful splendor. And a s ' I walked from exhibit to exhibit, I wondered about the species that has evolved, the species that we call homo sapiens, "Thinking Man."

What are we t h i n k i n g now? Just how H far has mankind progressed from our c ;-: prehistoric ancestors who constructed c. c: those first primitive weapons; from (he minds that perfected the first atom bomb: from the t h i n k i n g thai slratcgi/ed decades of armed conflict?

Baldwinites pray for peace by Joan Delaney On March 25, the fifth day of the war that has been called "Iraqi Freedom," Baldwihites came together at an ,nterfaith prayer service for peace. Pastor David Dooley, President of the Baldwin Interfaith Clergy Fellowship, spoke to The Leader in a phone interview. He explained that the group has been particularly concerned about world events since the fall. "As the situation unfolded, we knew that we would want to have a prayer service for peace." About three weeks ago, the group held an emergency meeting at which they passed a resolution agreeing that prayers for peace would be said in every religious institution in the community. The resolution, drafted by Dr. Charles G. Ackerson, pastor of All Saints Episcopal Church, stated, "The current situation in and among nations around the world is a great concern among the spiritual leadership of Baldwin'." It added that the manner in which these tensions are resolved "would have ramifications for each and every person in our community and nation." It concluded, "To this end, the clergy of Baldwin have resolved that praying for. peace in the world and harmony among.

nations will be included in all regular worship services." Pastor Kimberly Wilson of Bethlehem Lutheran Church, also speaking to The Leader, noted that before the war started, "Members of the community came to ask if we could have a service like this if war broke out." She added, "It's a way for the community to come together during a difficult time." Approximately 125 people attended the service, held at St. Christopher's Church. In his welcoming comments, Monsignor John Bennett said, "Watching war live is scary and awesome....We wish we weren't here," but he added, "Just because of these days there's nowhere else to be." He added that the service reflected the on-going relationship that'exists among the clergy. Later, commenting on the service, Pastor Wilson expressed similar thoughts. She said, "It was a hopeful sign and a comfort. It reflects the good relationship that exists among the clergy and the congregations that we can come together at a time like this and draw strength in difficult times. We know each other so well. It's a sign of a real strength of community." She described the preparation of the service as a "group effort " among the clergy.

MEMBERS OF BALDWIN'S INTERFAITH CLERGY FELLOWSHIP participate in a prayer service for peace. During the service, various members of the clergy offered prayers including the Psalms, the reading of the Beatitudes, a Prayer for Children, a Prayer for Soldiers, and a benediction. There was time for quiet reflection as well as the singing of such hymns as

"Let There Be Peace on Earth." In tones reminiscent of a solemn litany. Monsignor Bennelt read the names of 40 people, from Baldwin or related to Baldwin families, who are (continued on page 7)

PAST PRESIDENTS of the Baldwin Woman's Advance Club were honored at the group's February meeting. They include, from left, Joanna Forsberg, Hope Shale, Rosemary Menz, Ginny Gerardi, Ann Kracke, Helen Berglind, Rosemary Meyer and Kaye Bowen.

Both sides at an impasse in Freeport teacher contract talks by Jim Golding The Frcepoh School District and the teachers union reached "an impasse on negotiations,'' board president Sunday Coward staled as she began last Wednesday's monthly trustees meeting with a lengthy statement on the status oftalks with the FTA. District officials and Freeport Teachers Association-representatives held numerous meetings between January 23 and December 18, 2002, but could not agree on contract terms. Both parties could not resolve their differences through an outside mediator. The next step is to go to the "fact-finding" stage, which was to begin.April'2.

Under Strict Supervision of ' RABBI .GERSHON KREUSER Mashgiach Temidi Chassidishe Shechita-

Soaked & Salted

The District and FTA are at odds over issues that include wages, pupil load and professional development. In the dispute over wages, Ms. Coward 'said the union had asked for a 15 percent increase over a four-year period and, with incremental step increases each year, the total amount would reach 20 percent, which the school district could not afford. She said the union also wants 100 percent health care coverage. A mediator from the Public Employment Relations Board held five meetings 'between August 29 and Deember. 18 after both sides could not agree through collective bargaining.

Baldwinites pray for peace from page 5 presently on active military service. Some were formally identified with full military rank; others, affectionately by only a first name, depending on how the information was submitted. The Prayer for Soldiers read by Rabbi Robert Judd petitioned, "Give them the courage to meet the chilling stare of death. Show compassion to them as they seek to make the world safer for us and for those we love...May their efforts further the cause of peace throughout the world and bring us closer to. the day when 'Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn of war anymore.'" In the Prayer for Peace from Shabbat and Festival Services, read by Rabbi Aaron. Griver, Baldwinites prayed, "May we see the day when war and bloodshed cease, when a great peace will embrace the whole world." This gathering did not attract the numbers that came to pray 'after September 11, 2001, when that interfaith prayer service drew an overflow crowd, emotionally distraught, with personal losses and immediate fears. In an attempt to explain, two people who preferred to remain anonymous told The Leader, "The war is not in our back yard like 9/11 was." Another added, "Perhaps people thought it was a criticism of the troops or the President." Pastor Dooley told The Leader that he did receive some phone calls asking if the non-partisan prayer service was a peace rally, adding, "so perhaps there was some misunderstanding." In noting the smaller turnout he said, "There was some difficulty in notifying everyone. Am I disappointed? We always hope for more; it would be great to see more, but we are meant to be a shining light."

Freeport's New New Visions school oo

"The .teachers love the building, the kids love the building, and they respect it." Those arc the words of Freeport elementary math specialist Alan Brimer, describing FrccporTs beautiful, brand new New Visions school building on Raynor Street. The school moved into the new building on January 6, right after Christmas break, from leased facilities at Our Holy • Redeemer School on Pine Street. Without a permanent home, New Visions opened as Freeporl's fourth elementary school in 1995, and Long Island's first magnet school. Although the leased space housed the school for 7 1/2 years, teachers were eager to leave the old building, which was dark and had flooding problems. "We couldn't wail .to get out," said Mr. Brimer, who recounted that on the last day of classes in the building, classrooms filled with packed-up boxes began flooding. Their new home is -a beautiful, modern, bright, airy school building located intimately in a residential setting on Raynor Street, just west of Main Street. The building was custom-designed to house New Visions, and the planning for the building involved a great deal of • input from Principal Kathy Hines, Assistant Principal Susan DeLuca and Assistant Superintendent for Business Kishore Kuncham, as well as teachers • and other staff. "The architect asked us what we wanted in our new classrooms," said Mr. Brimer. "I said I wanted three things windows, windows, windows!" The architect was skeptical at first, but was more sympathetic after Mr. Brimer showed him his old, dark room, in which he "couldn't tell what the weather was. Without the sunlight, I left the building every day with a headache." His new room (all to himself now, no longer having to share) has seven windows, and like the rest of the building, is

full of natural light. Teachers and librarians also received things they asked for, like water fountains, sinks and storage space. In addition, first and second grade classrooms all have bathrooms. "Very often it is the little things," said Assistant Superintendant Kuncham. The planning for a new school building began in late 1998, and a bond issue was passed for the school in 2000. Mr. Kuncham told The Leader that he was very pleased to see the!project through over the 4-5 years it has taken to bring it to life. "I'm so delighted," he said, "It was years of struggle. It's quite gratifying. Over the time, I made it my person. al passion."

'It makes it a pleasure to come to work. Every week something else happens.9 The total cost of the building was just under $60 million, said the Assistant Superintendant. Between 50 and 11 percent of the cost will be paid for by the State Education Department. Mr. Kuncham was instrumental in picking the location, which had previously been a vacant lot owned by the district. 30 years ago, he said,.the district had tried to build a school on the same property, but residents had balked, fearing their homes .would be taken over by eminent domain. This time around, school district officals met with all the local residents to get their support. "I really think it has enhanced the neighborhood," said the Assistant Superintendant. When teachers and students first moved into' New Visions, some things were still being put together. But over time, the classrooms got their windowsills, drapes, computers and highspeed Internet access. "It makes it a pleasure to come to work," said Mr. Brimer, adding, "Every week something

else happens." Every classroom in New Visions has three Macintosh iMacs, wired directly to the Internet. The wonderfully bright library has a. coz.y reading area, four iMacs, and is adjacent to a laptop lab full of sparkling white Macintosh Powerbooks. The laptops are available for in-lab use, and in the future will be portable for students to use in class. The building is three stories high, in order to fit the school on the small par• eel of land, with room left over for some green space and a playground. The State Education Department granted Freeport a special variance for the location. The school is comprised of two wings, one three-story wing for classrooms, and one two-story wing that houses the gymnasium/auditorium, cafeteria, library/media center and special classrooms for art and music. Principal Kalhy Hines explained that the building was designed with the school's theme in mind-The school's full title is The New Visions Museum School for Exploration and Discovery. "The sense of asymine• try," said Ms. Hines, "is for the museum feeling." In addition, the "school has other features which reflect the idea of museum education. Each class has its own glass display case to show the students' work, in line with the school's goals, said Ms. Hines, of project-based instruction and hands-on learning. Different areas of the building also feature multiple uses which support creative ways to motivate the students to enjoy learning. Mr. Brimer pointed out little coves in the East Wing halls which he calls "area of ; contemplation^" which may be used for ' screening movies, reading, or other purposes. Most classrooms have accordian doors between them to facilitate team leaching, breaking up into small groups, and mixing grades one and and two

together for certain projects. The cafeteria and audorium/gym also have temporary doors, which would allow the entire space to be used for large events. •Another unique feature of New Visions is the "stairatorium." In the bright and open lobby, broad, asymmetrical stairs lead up to the second floor, which in' the middle of the building houses a balcony over the lobby, a mural and future art gallery. The stairs double as an educational space, as students can sit on the stairs and watch films on a brand new 18-foot projection screen. By using the lobby as an educational space, the district was able to secure state aid for the area. But the stairs truly offer a potential auditorium atmosphere, and provide a casual and fun new way to use every inch of the building. The school district had a lot to fit into the small parcel of land (lack of parking appears to be the only complaint) but it has shown the same kind of creative problem solving and design that the school seeks to teach the children. And when Ms. Hines was asked if the stairs would stay clean enough to sit on. she paused and confidently replied that "the building is immaculate." New Visions currently houses about 370 students, even as "it's still unpacking." The gym and stage will be finished in a week or two, and work has begun on the playground. The New Visions program last year had only 320. and eventually the school will house 500 students. By offering a larger program at the school. Freeport cat) offer more students this wonderful school as well as decrease major classroom crowding at the other schools, which have had over 700 students. The formal ribbon-cutting at the school will take place on April 30.

by Jim Golding Miscellaneous claims and administrative actions' were acted upon at Monday's Village Board meeting. Trustees approved an additional grant of $9,800 to Ratan and Michele Haider for commercial facade rehabilitation at their building on 77 South Main Street. The action drew a response from Freeport Site Planning Board member Eileen Weaver, who questioned the purpose of the grant and complained about the need for more commercial rehab grants for other areas. "I have great concern where our money goes and the amount of money spent in other areas in relation to the northern part of

Freeport," she said. Mayor William F. Glacken explained that the project involved improvements to signage and installation of an elevator, which would be paid for, in part, from a $150,000 federal grant under the ' Americans with Disabilities Act, and an upgrade in electric service. The location is a two-story commercial building and the owners had also applied for a matching ,$9,800 for the project. The original grant was approved in 2002. The Mayor said "no village taxpayer money" would be used. "We're trying to make a concerted effort to revitalize downtown," he declared.

Freeport teacher contract talks from page 6 In a statement she read at the March 26 board meeting, FTA President Lillian Guttman described the various meetings held with school officials. She said, in part, "The union listened to the district's needs. We listened to the way the district proposed resolving their needs and there appeared to be no one from the district listening to our suggestions or points of view. Mediation failed to settle our differences. Communication, discussion and compromise are necessary components in settling any agreement."

Ms. Guttman continued, "We recognize that negotiations can be very difficult, particularly if both groups have a definite agenda in mind - The Freeport Teachers Association would like to receive a contract like those of our central administrators. We ask for nothing more and nothing less. We want a fair and equitable contract for our members; one that reflects the care, effort and diligence that we put forth in educating our children. We want a contract that reflects our expertise, experience and our years of schooling."

Freeport Chamber of Commerce meeting <D 00

by Bill and Norma Braun

Ron Turbin, Assistant Attorney General in Charge of Nassau County, was the guest speaker at the Chamber of <N Commerce luncheon Tuesday, March { I , at -Steve's Riptide Restaurant, 507 Guy Lornbardo Avenue, Freeport. .,His interesting talk dealt -with theft and consumer fraud protection, which is C3 rapidly becoming the most prevalent I and costly crime in (he nation. It is esti- • 3 mated that more than 40,000 people have their identity stolen each year, c6sting.consumers and the financial industry w billions of dollars. Q CO

The Attorney General's Office suggests that there are several ways lo protect against identity theft. Never provide any personal bank account or credit card information during a telephone solicitation. Be careful about giving out personal identification such as mother's maiden name and Social Security number. Tear up and destroy all ATM and bank receipts, old insurance forms, bank checks, expired credit cards. This includes pre-approved credit card solicitation. Only give out Social Security numbers when necessary, and do not store

your social security card in your wallet. Don't let merchants record your credit card's number on a check. It is prohibited by law! The same goes for travelers checks and money orders. Assistant Attorney General Turbin alsq spoke of the number of lawsuits handled by his office. "10 to 15,000'per

year, many involving pollution and consumer protection. We don't make laws, we just enforce (hem." For more information about identity theft, the'Attorney General's office can be contacted at (800) : 771-7755 or on their web site at www.oag.stale.iiy.us.

The Chamber's next meeting will be at 12:30 on Monday, April 7 at the Mermaid West on Woodcleft Avenue. , The guest will be The Leader's Advertising Manager, Mark Treske, the .Honored Business Person of the Month.
