jr 1J!| After what was .described as a "rigorous" review process, with a total of six bids received in early March, the Freeport Electric Department announced that the village has selected GFS, LLC comprising Greenman Pedersen Inc./Fresh Meadows Mechanical Corporation/Peter Scalamandre & Sons, Inc. to construct the new village generation facilities at Power Plant 2, and Welsbach Electric Corporation to construct gas and electric interconnection facilities. In the words of Freeport Electric Superintendent Hub Bianco, GFS and Welsbach were "the most responsive '• and responsible" bidders. Among the criterion used to evaluate bids were whether the required information was provided, and the quality of that information. Resumes and references of the individual and companies involved were checked. Among other questions asked was, can they meet the time frame, and do they have the resources to do the job properly and on schedule? This process has resulted in a selection that Mr. Bianco says will save "several million dollars over the prior bid." GFS, LLC will be responsible FREEPORT'S POWER PLANT 2, site of the new for the development on the Power Plant 2, site of the generation and neers R. W.

Without adequate capacity, penalties may be imposed by the New York Independent System Operator. On top of the penalties is the additional expense of actually purchasing electricity from extremely volatile market sources. LIPA has selected a developer for the construction of a second LM6000 at the Power Plant 2 site. Upon final negotiations with the village, the developer will assume costs associated with common equipment such as the acoustical abatement wall, onsite transformer substation, and gas and electric distribution lines, which will be shared by the village and LIPA developer. The monies from the developer's portion of the shared facilities will be used to reduce the cost of the Freeport Unit.

Nautical Mile project receives APA development award In recognition of the outstanding results of the Nautical Mile revitalization project, the American Planning Association's Economic Development Division named the Village of Freeport the 2003'winner of the Exemplary Economic Development Planning Award. ' • The award recognizes the enormous physical improvements that the Village was able to achieve on Woodcleft Avenue, and the positive changes those improvements made in the economic life of the traditional working waterfront known locally as the Nautical Mile. "This national recognition from the APA will bring further attention to the Nautical Mile and will spread the word

that Freeport is an ideal waterfront community on Long. Island's South Shore and an excellent tourist destination," said Mayor Bill Glacken. Freeport reconstructed sidewalks and created brick walkways, added benches, planters, and antique-style lighting while removing the overhead utility lines. This re vital ization work created a hospitable environment for the local restaurants, fish markets and gift shops to invest in their existing businesses by expanding and upgrading while new enterprises took a fresh look at Freeport's waterfront tourist attraction and decided to become part of the eco-' (continued on page 18)

Freeport celebrates 'Earth Day' by Bill and Norma Braun Secretary of State Randy A. Daniels, who1 serves as chairman of the Long Island South Shore Estuary Reserve Council presented certificates of appreciation to five grassroots organizations, for their work in protecting and restoring the valuable resources of the South Shore Estuary. An awards ceremony was held along the "Nautical Mile" on Woodcleft Canal in Freeport, as part of the statewide Earth Day celebration April 22. "All of us share the responsibility for protecting our environment and the precious natural resources that are so important to our quality of life," Secretary Daniels said. "With the strong leadership of Governor Pataki and the work of groups like those we honor today, we have made significant progress in restoring and protecting the health of the South Shore Estuary. "Earth Day is an opportune time to reaffirm our commitment to build upon these efforts so the South Shore Estuary will remain an active and vital resource for all Long Islanders," the Secretary said. "It is a pleasure to recognize and thank our partners for their contributions in conserving the estuary and their continuing commitment to this vital effort." Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. said, "I join with Governor Pataki and Secretary Daniels in applauding the outstanding work of these organizations who have dedicated countless hours and resources to preserve our South Shore Estuary. Their efforts will enable Long Islanders, New Yorkers, and visitors from throughout the world to enjoy our

beautiful shorelines and observe native wildlife flourish in their natural environment." The organizations receiving honors are: • The Nature Conservancy, for leading a coalition of stakeholders to develop a multi-use management plan for an 11,500-acre parcel of bottomlands in Great South Bay; • Citizens Campaign for the Environment, for promoting environmental education throughout the South Shore Estuary Reserve and all of Long Island, helping to develop the next generation of dedicated environmental stewards; • Ducks Unlimited, for its wetlands restoration efforts, which protect critical habitats for numerous coastal species; • Operation SPLASH (Stop Polluting,Littering, and Save Harbors), for its cleanup of litter in South Shore Harbors and efforts to prevent pollution from impacting the estuary; and • The Post-Morrow Foundation, for its work to acquire and preserve lands along Beaver Dam Creek, protecting habitats and supporting recreational activities on the waterway. Freeport Mayor William Glacken said, "The South Shore Estuary is an important local and regional resource and we are pleased to see so many groups involved in helping to protect it. The Village of Freeport commends the efforts of New York State and is particularly proud of Operation SPLASH, which was founded in the Village. They, along with all of today's honorees, truly exemplify the community spirit that makes Long Island a great place to live and work."

Celebrate National Volunteers Week April 27-May 3 by Eugene Patterson • , • Armed Forces Emergency Services Coordinator,: > American Red Cross in Nassau Counfy You've got to love people who love their jobs. They're the ones always willing to go that extra mile and inspire others to do the same. In my experience, the people who love their jobs the most are the people who do them simply because they want to, without expecting anything in return, except perhaps an occasional thank you: volunteers. There is no better lime than National Volunteer Week, which runs from April 27 to May 3, to show appreciation for these very special people This year, volunteers at the American Red Cross in Nassau County have been especially busy. The war in Iraq has created a demand for volunteers to help local military families communicate with their loved" one abroad in emergencies. Concerns about homeland security have also inspired Red Cross volunteers to help families take five simple steps to be ready for whatever may happen through the new Red Cross initiative called Together, We Prepare. We will thank these volunteers during a special recognition ceremony at the American Red Cross in Nassau County to kick off National Volunteer Week. At the same time, volunteers have continued to provide most of the local Red Cross services our neighbors depend on, from helping families affected by fires and other disasters to teaching classes in first aid, CPR, use of automatic defibrillators, disaster preparedness and international humanitarian law to raising the funds that allow our local Red Cross chapter to provide lifesaving services right here in Nassau County. Many of them will be recognized .during our upcoming 87th Annual Meeting .and Awards Luncheon in June. - ; '....' The theme of this year's National Volunteer Week is "Celebrate Volunteers - The Spirit of America." It recognizes the fact that since the birth of our nation, Americans have set a standard for the world in the generous gift of their time and expertise to improve the lives of others. I would like to thank the volunteers of the American Red Cross and of the many other local organizations with whom we partner every year for working together to make Nassau County a safer place for all of us. Editor's note: A Vietnam War veteran from Freeport, Mr. Patterson works with military men and women, as well as their ^families, with Red Cross emergency communication, financial assistance, counseling and referrals.

UST \A/riT@ loy joon by Joan Delaney WHAT DOES IT MEAN?.... Recently both Newsday and the New York Times printed the results of last year's standardized tests, district by district and school by school within each district. For people who attend Board of Education meetings in their communities, most of the information was probably not new. In February, Baldwin administrators shared the district's results at the board's regular monthly meeting. More importantly, the testing process was described and explanations were given as to what strategies were in place or being put in place to improve student achievement. For example, the whole story behind the physics and chemistry Regents exams was spelled out and residents learned that the low scores state-wide seem to be an aberration, not reflected in Advanced Placement exams in the same courses taken by the same students. With the State Education Department resistent to explaining itself, school districts throughout the state are now engaged in a lawsuit as they seek to find out how those tests were scored and how answers were weighted in that scoring. Without all these explanations and without a lot of other background material, the listings in newspapers seem to obscure the real purpose of the exams, which supposedly is to improve student achievement. New York's Regents have lobbied hard to convince everyone that they are determined to raise standards, a goal applauded by people in and out of the educational community. What is not agreed upon, however, is the methodology they have selected to bring about those improvements - constant testing of youngsters and very public comparisons of very different districts. Public comparisons cause public outcry and panic. Why aren't our children doing as well as the children in another district? Anyone knowledgeable about communities would see that one of the answers to that question is very obvious. The list of district results, it appears,

pretty much follows a corresponding list of per capita spending. That is, the more a district is able to spend on the education of its children, the.better the kids • 'seem to do. In some districts, -once atrisk students are identified, they are practically tutored one on one. Districts with less money do not have that luxury. And how accurate are the statistics anyway? Statistics given in percentages; are always iffy. In Baldwin, theje are seven elementary schools of varioussizes. In the case of Milburn School, there are only 136 students in the entire school. In that school and in other schools with small class sizes, the failure of only a few children can change the whole perception of student achievement from year to year. This year in Milburn School, its test results were higher than those in any other elementary school in the district, but what would the results look like next year if only a few children failed? Another statistic is equally ridiculous. Each ;and every elementary school in Baldwin is listed as having no child at the poverty level. That is because the measure the state uses in determining poverty is whether a child is eligible for the free lunch program. Since Baldwin has no hot lunch facilities at the elementary schools, it provides no free lunches. Ergo, according to the state, there are no children in poverty. So what do the statistics tell? They tell how a specific number of children scored on a particular test on a given day. Comparisons to previous years are faulty because you are not testing the same children. Comparisons to other districts are unfair because you are talking about districts with widely different resources. What kinds of statistics are never mentioned, never talked about, never factored into this accounting which causes public judgments to be made about a district's schools, programs, teachers and students? Never pubished are how mobile the population of a district is; How many of a district's educational services have the children really experienced? Never published are how

Support Stuart Lilker

H

To The Leader: This is great news — that Stewart Lilker will run for Trustee for the Freeporl Board of Education for the one upcoming vacant seat. The election is scheduled for Tuesday, May 20. I .ask everyone to join me and my wife Sallie, daughter Karen, and nephew Jeffrey to come out and vole for Mr. Lilker. Mr. Lilker knows the needs of the approximate 8000 children we are responsible for educating here in Freeport as we help get them ready for the world after the 12th grade, and I know he will speak up and fight for that. He's someone I want representing me on that Boa'rd of Education because I know he will aggressively challenge us all to help and accelerate the current effort that has been started to bring our district's performance up out of the cellar for all

grade levels. There has been some new and recent outstanding news in which our New York State Education Department made a major announcement that all four of our elementary schools here in Freeport are being recognized as being most improved statewide in,meeting or exceeding state standards in the most recent stringent Regents exarnination period. This is major news. Everyone involved deserves a well done and major thank you. . This didn't just happen. I know it took lots of extra work, and we must give major recognition to the administration involved of the four schools, the teachers, parents, and students. The four schools being recognized by the NYSED are: Archer Street, Bayview Avenue, Leo F. Giblyn, and New Visions. Now we need to continue and maintain that success of those four schools, but carry forward that same type of extra achievement to our middle schools and high school. Stewart Lilker has studied the matter relentlessly, and is ready to jump in, get to work, and do his share. I ask everyone to join me in going to the polls and vote for him on Tuesday, May 20. For the one seat that is up for election, I note that Dr. Al Renken is running again. I was surprised. He is a former member of the Freeport Board of Education with its failed policies of the past, policies that failed the students and families of Freeport who were depending on our schools to educate our children. After his recent election defeat, I didn't think we would hear from him again. While Dr. Renken was on the Board of Education, the Freeport Public

Schools consistently were always in the bottom category of performance among all Nassau County's 58 school districts, and that had been going on for years. Now,' we are starting to see some improvement, and I don't think anyone wants to return to the failures of the past. My vote is moving forward and with Stewart Lilker. Bruce Lloyd

Freeport Library Budget

Do You Know The Value OXYour Home, co-op/condo or commercial property

O'Connor & Matthews Real Estate

by Mark Treske After a process described by director David Opatow as "more complicated than before," the Freeport Memorial Library has released its 2003-2004 budget. The library vote will take place on May 20 as part of the school budget vote. Expenditures will total $4,492,291, an increase of $153,448 over last year. The largest increase, as is the case with many other libraries and school districts, is in payments to the state retirement fund - estimated at $245,000, an increase of 250%. This situation has been caused by the decline in value of the investments in the fund, tied to the slump cm Wall Street - a decline that institutions such as the library have to make up in increased contributions. This amount is subject to change, as a bill pending in Albany would allow for such increases to be spread out over several years. Other significant increases include: Health insurance expenses, up $76,000 (although Mr. Opatow notes that Freeport library employees contribute to their health insurance, unlike other libraries); and state-mandated Workman's Compensation expenses, up $32,000. An increase, of $37,755 in salaries has been budgeted. Mr. Opatow noted that the library's current contract with its workers expires at the end of June, 2003; Initial proposals and counter-proposals are being made and Mr. Opatow hopes that the negotiations will be completed by that time. Expenses for books, videos and periodicals will remain static, as the library board wishes to hold the line as much as possible on costs. One expense line that has been reduced is capital improvement, from $250,000 to $50,000. Mr. Opatow explains that the libray had intended to install new, automated sliding doors in order to improve access, but changed its mind when estimates of the cost came in much higher than expected. On the revenue side of the ledger, a transfer of $250,000 was made in 2002-2003 from the Special Purpose Funds (a rainy day fund) to the General Fund to offset tax increases. Since the board is unable to do so this year, revenue drops by that amount. Overall, tax revenue will go up from $3,909,981 to $4,341,449, an increase of approximately 11%. The effect on the individual taxpayer will vary, owning to the changes related to the reassessment underway in Nassau County. Mr. Opatow acknowledges that the library, like many other community institutions, is undergoing "hard times" economically. It is, however, important to realize how much Freeporters get from their library - a huge collection of materials and databases, programs of tutoring for all ages, musical programs of all kinds, from classical to jazz to ethnic. Mr. Opatow particularly made note of a new library service - the Community Services Department, an expansion of the existing services offered to the Freeport community. This new depart1 ment offers help in filling out forms such as STAR applications, referrals to agencies for help with housing, heat and legal matters, and free notary services.

Richard W. Homan, M.D. Richard W. Homan, M.D., MA., who passed away in Dallas, Texas on March 8, was born July 28,1940 in New York City to H. Frank Homan Jr. and Irmgard Dutz. He graduated from Freeport High School in 1958 where he was voted Prom King and his sweetheart, Katherine Poulos, was voted Prom Queen - a match that would endure for over 45 years. Following high school, he majored in Psychology at Colgate University in upstate R|c(iar(|w New York. He was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, achieved Phi Beta Kappa, and lettered in wrestling and lacrosse. During his time at Colgate, Richard began to study what would become a life-long passion - the investigation and treatment of epilepsy and neurological disorders. He graduated cum laude in 1962 and entered the State University of New York, Downstate in New York City. Prior to his second year of medical school, he married his Prom Queen in St. Paul's Greek Orthodox Church on Long Island. Richard and Katherine began their postmedical school adventure in Los Angeles, California where Richard completed his residency in neurology at UCLA. During residency they were joined by two sons,

Gregory William and Christopher Allen. After completing residency, Richard served as a Major at Sheppard Air Force hospital in Wichita Falls, Texas - introducing them to what would become their new home state. Upon completing his military service, he became a research fellow at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City. This fellowship began his career in academic medicine, which resulted in distinguished tenures as Chief of Neurology at the Veterans' uÂť_~_ HX n Administration Hospital in Homan, M.D. .r Dallas, Texas, Chairman of Neurology at the Medical College of Ohio, and Chairman of Neurology at Texas Tech Health Science Center in Lubbock, Texas. While Richard pursued the study and treatment of neurological disorders, his most treasured moments were as husband and father. He enjoyed time participating with his sons in various sports, most notably soccer, skiing, and scuba diving. An avid traveler with an appreciation for different cultures, he also enjoyed taking his family on trips throughout the world. In the late 1990s, Richard retired from the clinical practice of neurology and began a Master's program at the Institute of Medical Humanities at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston,

Texas.. His Master's thesis focused on the corporatization of medicine and proposed a new metaphor for health care policy in the United States. While earning this Master's degree in Biomedical ethics, Richard and.Katherine built their dream house in Dallas. The focus of construction was to preserve natural resources, now and in the future, and the house has won awards for energy efficiency and environmental excellence. His life exemplified a thirst for knowledge and the pursuit of excellence in medicine and patient care. He was a visionary in the field of neurology who sought to humanize the doctor-patient relationship in

the true spirit of medicine. Richard is remembered here for his accomplishments, his love of family and friends, and his pursuit of a life full of adventure. A memorial service was held at the Episcopal Church of the Incarnation in Dallas. In lieu of flowers the family has requested that memorials be sent to the Ethics Program at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Checks-can be made payable to UT-Southwestern. In the memo line place 'In Memory of Richard Homan for the Ethics Program.' Checks should be mailed to: Office of Development, UT-Soulhwestem. P.O. Box 910888, Dallas TX 75391-0888.

lottors to thio oditor from page 6 you buying tampons, but how much are you spending per box." He asked for a breakdown of salaries per teacher, per grade level. This is not what I said, both literally and thematically. I took issue with the fact that while the line item budget "does" show unit price, the district "does not" show the residents how much it individually pays each of its teachers. When I addressed the Board, I directed them to the line item budget, Supplies, page 11, and then directed them to the line which showed 22 cal- ' iber bullets. I said, "If you look at the budget, we know how much a box of bullets costs." Please note that the line item budget contains the "Unit Cost" for all items. If your reporter would have spoken to me at the end of the meeting or looked at the

budget, it would have been clear that unit costs are indeed contained in the line item budget. After discussing the bullets, which, considering the gang violence in the district, it is beyond me to understand why that was not included in your story, I directed the Board to page 15 of the line item budget, the line titled "Tampons." I said, "If you look the line titled Tampons...you will see that we know how much they cost..." I continued: "Now, if we go to page 3 in the Staffing Analysis, you will see that we have 9.6 pre-K teachers earning a total of $788,636. That is an average of $82,000 per pre-K teacher. That is a lot of money. Why is it that if we know how much a box of bullets costs and we know how much a box of tampons cost, we don't know how much each teacher is paid individually. That is wrong and other districts do it." Stewart L. Lilker
