Take this test Language is one way we create a sense of group identity. And English has a whole new second language. This new way of writing has come from the technology we use to communicate. Text messaging is using, beeper and telephone buttons to .send written messages, which is somewhat complicated because each key can represent a number plus three or four letters. Instant messaging is sending short, typed messages back and forth in a written conversation via the Internet on .-the computer. '< - , • , t , , , ,.

jUSt Writefc>yjoan dolaney by Joan Delaney . IT'S IN THE DETAILS .... The July meeting of the Board of Education, which includes a portion devoted to its annual reorganization and appointments, gives residents a real idea of the business aspects of education. The details are amazing. Every "T" is crossed and every "I" must be dotted in a lengthy approval process of annual appointments which includes a variety of lawyers, accountants and auditors as well as an assortment of insurance coverages. '' • Nothing is simple. Does a teacher want to schedule a field trip? The trip must be associated with the curriculum and the teacher must fill out a form. Eventually final approval for the trip rests with the superintendent of schools. Even something so seemingly easy as contracting a coach bus is complicated. The bus company must send a copy of

the driver's certification because the driver must not only be certified to drive a large bus, but also to transport children. When a "substitute" driver arrives instead of the driver whose certification has been approved, the trip is held up until the new driver's certifications can be faxed and approved. When the state required more, parent involvement in decision-making, sitebased teams that included paren.ts as well as staff and administrators were developed. But these parents also had to be insured for liability, since they were part of the decision making process on issues that technically could produce litigation. And then there are district policies and procedures. Changes in federal and state law prompt changes to policies. Evolving societal views prompt the need for still-more policies. For example, any sexual harassment complaint must be thoroughly, investigated and procedures

for the process are'detailed, down to noting where the file on the investigation resides. I find it hard to believe that every school district in the state is as precise as Baldwin in adhering to the letter of the law on these various preventive and compliance issues. And while no one would say they are unnecessary, they certainly require an enormous amount of staff time. '. •' ' • After' a presentation on the State Education Department's required evaluation of the special education program, school board member B.A. Schoen noted, "It's another unfunded mandate." This time-consuming effort was once completed primarily by SED employees. Now, although the process is described as "more collegia!," the real burden of work falls on district staff- to fit in along with their many other responsibilities. And the detail described by Dr.

Waverlyn Peters, Director of Pupil Personnel, is amazing. As noted in the c news article on the meeting, the district 5! Q. is in non-compliance when it fails to note in a student's file the room in which . the child will receive speech therapy. In the course of a school year, parents will attend board meetings with suggestions, complaints,. requests and even demands.. If people, attended; this July organizational meeting, they would better understand why board members and* paid staff cannot simply respond to them with an immediate answer. Everything must be vetted by lawyers and accountants. The contracts of professional staff members must be honored. The implications of each and every decision must be clear. Certainly, it is much easier for public officials to proclaim and even legislate what must be done. It is much harder for school districts to do it, do it legally, and do it in a way that they won't be sued.

Baldwin Board appoints assistant superintendent by Joan Delaney The Baldwin Board of Education approved the appointment of Ed Cigna as Assistant Superintendent for Business and Administrative Services last week. The Baldwinite, who was previously an assistant superintendent in the East Williston School District, told The Leader that he was pleased to be able to "join my professional service with my community service." He added, "It makes you a whole person. When you say 'we' to the public, it really is 'we.' " Mr. Cigna will work alongside Deputy Superintendent Lee Chapman during the coming year until Mr. Chapman retires. Then, the organizational structure of the district will change slightly - the position of deputy superintendent will be eliminated and there will be two assistant superintendents. Personnel responsibilities, now under Mr. Chapman, will be redistributed. Baldwin's other assistant superintendent, Jeffrey Hollman, serves as the Assistant Superintendent for Instruction.

Mr. Cigna began his career in education as a science teacher, later becoming a chairperson, assistant principal and high school principal. In the small district of East Williston, he was their sole assistant superintendent. His title there as Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Technology, he said, was really a misnomer since he was responsible for many other tasks, including preparing the budget. The complexity of the finances and budgeting of a district like Baldwin was one of the reasons why the board decided to create the additional position for this school year. At a March, meeting prior to budget discussion, the board heard a presentation by consultants who described several organizational possir bilities. In explaining their final decision, board members said that they believed that this side-by-side appointment would result in a smoother transition. The July meeting, as usual, had two parts; with the initial portion devoted to

reorganizational issues required,by law. ' Board members voted to return James. . Scannell as President of the board and Bill Edelman as Vice President. Mary Jo O'Hagan and B.A. Schoen were sworn in to begin their new terms of office. The board also approved a series of annual appointments that covered business and legal responsibilities. Dr. Waverlyn Peters, Director of Pupil Services, presented an .overview of a comprehensive state-required evaluation of special education. She stressed that the evaluation was part of a "periodic reiyew" by the state and not because of any particular problem. She showed a three inch binder which served as a "guidance document" for the committee that included numerous staff members who received two days of training by State Educational Department (SED) regional associates'. Present at the board meeting were Janet Smith and Rose Gagliardi from SED. The five-section report included an overview, data summary, parent survey,

arid'Corhpliaiice Summary. Dr. Peters .npted that SEp representatives selected 60 random student files which were then studied page by page, beginning from the moment when the child was first placed under review for classification. Each detail of the file was studied for compliance with various state and federal requirements, and the most minute lapses were noted. For example, if it was decided that a child was to receive speech therapy, the district was in technical non-compliance if the file did not indicate in exadtly what room the therapy would take place. Dr. Peters noted that certain policies and procedures would' be rewritten. Also, the district must improve the "methods of documenting what we do." The school district's responsibility for special education children begins at age three and lasts until the student is 21. Of particular note was the district's excellent nursing services for students in frail medical health, some of whom require (continued on page 6)

letters Promote American ideals To The leader: Upon reading in the July 3 Leader that the Freeport school board rejected Frank Tucker's amendment to the school district's vision statement, I was outraged. What was the "inconvenient" amendment that Mr. Tucker proposed to our union-puppet board that elicited so much controversy? Mr. Tucker respectfully requested that the school district's Vision Statement -include a desire to promote our American ideals. This is. important for students' selfesteem as citizens of the greatest nation in human history. Warts and all, the U.S.A. is still the best refuge of mankind; millions of miserable people keep battering our porous. borders to gain admission. As for labeling Mr. Tucker's amendment as llth hour, that's false. The new school administrator, Dr. Starr (attendance liberal) stalled me on the same proposal for three months. May our dead veterans forgive them, for they know not what they do. Alan Jay

A former Baldwin High School science teacher was recently sentenced to five years probation afte.r leading guilty on May 14 to charges-of first-degree attempted disseminating indecent material to a minor. .. The culprit, John Vodicka, of Syosset, was arrested in January for sending sexually explicit writings to a former student of his via e-mail. According to Nassau Assistant District Attorney Gregg Turkin, the 37 year old Vodicka acknowledged that he sent a 16year old female student numerous e-mail messages containing "dirty" sexual stories between February and April 2000. The woman's name is being withheld

because she is a sex crime victim. During .a brief court session in MineoJ^on, J^ty 3,^6^om^n,,whQ is now-20, agreed to a plea deal witFf ivir. Vodicka's attorneys. The bargain reduced all charges against Mr. Vodicka — he was initially charged with four counts of disseminating material and . three counts of sexual abuse — to just a single charge of disseminating material. . Mr. Vodicka was forced to surrender his teacher's license and was ordered to register as a sex offender for the next 10 years. He is classified as a Level 12 offender, which is the lowest risk level possible.

Happy 100th Birthday to Our Holy Redeemer! by Laura Schofer In 1858 a Catholic priest, the Rev. James McEnroe, came riding into Freeport on a white horse. The Diocese of Brooklyn decided it was time to provide priests to the hamlets of Long Island. Travel was by horse and buggy on primitive roads and Catholics were widely scattered, few in number, poor, without political power and at times objects of hostile and organized bigotry. Rev. McEnroe, known as the "Circuit Riding Priest," came all the way from Glen Cove to Freeport to shepherd his flock.

It cost $6,000 to build the church. The church opened its doors at the Feast of Our Holy Redeemer, July 15, 1900 and was dedicated on September 3, 1900 by Rt. Rev. Charles E. McDonnell as a Mission Church encompassing the communities of Baldwin to Seaford on the east, Roosevelt on the north and the Atlantic Ocean on the south. The first recorded baptism in May of 1900 was Pierre Louis Noel of Merrick;

The Midmer organ was installed in the church at the cost of $41,000. The church was built by Irish immigrant bricklayers, including James Toury. In a letter found in the church archives, Bill Woods writes the follow-. ing story: "A man I knew told me a short story about its {Holy Redeemer Church] construction. This person's name was James Toury and when I knew him he was living in Bayside, Queens...One evening while talking-with Mr. Toury, I mentioned that I now lived in Freeport. He looked kind of wistful and told me that as a very young man recently arrived in New York from Ireland he found work as a bricklayer and worked on Our Holy Redeemer Church; One day during construction, a large group of KKK [Ku Klux Klan] appeared on the site replete with robes, sheets and a cross. "On the job, according to Mr. Toury, were many bricklayers like himself, Irish Catholic immigrants. He said without hesitation they took off after these KKK, running down the street, possibly Ocean Avenue. I believe they showed up a second time with a large number of KKK but the results were the same." Our Holy Redeemer Church opened its doors for Easter Mass in 1911. The church was dedicated by Bishop McDonnell of Brooklyn on June 11. Early newspaper accounts say that "nearly a thousand persons saw the new Roman Catholic Church of Our Holy

A special train which arrived in Freeport shortly before 11 a.m. brought nearly 200 persons." The dedication journal said Father Logue "foresaw the large development of Long Island. He has been criticized for building a djurch akin to a small cathedral in a village that had 1,500 Catholics. He replied, 'I am building for 50 years from now.'" By 1912 a number of Catholic organ-, izations were founded including the Conference of St. Vincent de Paul, The Knights of Columbus, Holy Name Society, a Sunday School and the Catholic Club for Men. Freeporter Ed Meaney in a 1984 church bulletin talks about those early days. He was 90 years old. He asked if "anyone remembers when a burial ground could be found west of Church Street and south of Pine Street on prop-

erty now used by the junior high school? Dpes anyone remember the only black family who belonged to our parish? 3 They labored long and hard in those I D. early days for Our Holy Redeemer's development and success. The Fendersons were wonderful people," he wrote. The church continued to grow throughout the 1920s and '30s. Our Holy Redeemer School was built in S 1925, under the leadership of the church's second pastor, Father John L. O'Toole. The school become a focal point in education and an integral part of parish life. Many of the church's members were 6 actively involved in a number of civic 50 and religious organizations working for the betterment of the entire community. One of these organizations included a branch of the Catholic Daughters of America (Court Stella Maris) which opened in 1926 as well as Knights of Columbus. Throughout the 1920s and '30s, numerous articles appear in the Nassau Daily .Review and the Long Island Gazette about parishioners and, their community activities. There is Anna Martin, President of the Women's Auxiliary of the Freeport Lodge of Elks in addition to being the Grand Regent of the Court Stella Maris, and Minnie Raynor, director of the Minerva Choral Society. In a 1960 interview in Redemption, a church newspaper, Gustav Berkel talks about his involvement both at Our Holy Redeemer and outside of the church. "In 1924 Gus joined the Usher Society...In

The article adds that Mr. Berkel served the Village of Freeport as Chairman of the Park Commission and as a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals. He was a 45- year member of the Elks, Freeport Board Election Chairman, Nassau Police Conference and Southwest Civic Association. The 1936 census of religious bodies found that. Our Holy Redeemer Church had 2,096 members. The Interfaith Council was founded through the combined efforts of Father O'Toole, Our Holy Redeemer's second pastor, Rabbi Katz, Rev. R. Scott, Episcopalian Church and Rev. Mahon, the third pastor o| Our Holy Redeemer. Rev. John Mahon believed in uniting the diverse ethnic parish and the larger community. He spoke many languages including Italian, Lithuanian, German, French and Spanish. In 1944 the (continued on page 4A)

Saturday bingo, I was president of the church school board, I sang on the adult choir, was part of the Ministry of Catholics of African Ancestry, even testified to my faith in Jesus on a baseball field." Even as Mr. Etheridge witnesses society indeed changing, moving the church, for .example, to initiate a Spanish choir to include Spanish-speaking people or to initiate other new programs to reflect society's move forward, he intimates that Holy Redeemer's vision in fact isn't affected by evolution at all, that its mission of building a community of love remains, to him, forever.the same.

Amelia Avelianeda

Gary Etheridge year- old Gary Etheridge with a foundation of faith toward the community. "When I came to Freeport 20 years ago I /looked at several, parishes, though I was impressed, by -what. 1-"saw at Holy Redeemer, the traditional high ceiling and the stained glass windows, because it reminded me of the church I grew up in," he explained. ."It had a good feel to it;" he continued, "and that's what initially got me going to the services." But when prompted as to whether it was solely an issue of appearance that brought him there, a reminder of his past, he continued that "when I got there I began to feel comfortable with the diversity of parishioners they had, even back then. Yet I felt like I fit in' right away, as though there was a good sense of community here. " While mindful of the parish's vision to "build a civilization of love," he reiterated the importance of community to him. "It was important to me to find a place to settle in, where my kids could grow up and. feel comfortable. And community was a very strong aspect of my attraction to the church," he said. He attends Holy Redeemer regularly. If he misses a Sunday it is only because he is at his wife's church, Emmanuel Baptist Church in Elmont. "There are no conflicts at all between the two churches," he carefully pointed out. "There's a convergence, we are a Christian family." In fact, he noted with some humor, his wife was invited to become a member of the Catholic Daughters before they realized she was Baptist. But for Mr. Etheridge, at least, walls among denominations are non-existent if the message that "God is Love" is fully understood among them. Both daughters, Adrienne, now 20, in her third year at Temple University in Philadelphia studying kinesiology, and Tamara, recently graduated from Sacred Heart Academy in Hempstead, were baptized at Holy Redeemer, spending many hours singing in the choirs. "When Adrienne was 16 she went on a trip to a mission in 'Kingston,- Jamaica, affiliated with Holy Redeemer." Of Tamara, he said her singing in various choirs served in part to solidify her desire and determination to study art at Dowling College. But Mr. Etheridge, a sales manager in telecommunications, is expressive too, though in a more communal and social way. "As a Catholic I'm always looking for ways to express my faith," he said. In attending services once, a week for just over an hour, he says Holy Redeemer has given him an outlet in which to express his faith, applying what he has learned in service^ to others. "I have been on the parish

When parishioner Amelia Avelianeda (pronounced Abajenalla) taught religion at her church in Cuba, where she was born, she received a visit one day from the government who told her that,-while she could practice her religion - albeit very quietly she could not teach it, as the government (i.e. Fidel Castro) did not condone it. "I used to prepare little children for their first .communion," she explained. Realizing that such repression, was anything but healthy expression toward the things she loved, in 1970 she moved to Spain with her parents, finally making her way to the United States in 1973. "When I moved to Freeport, where my uncle lived, my English was not well developed," she remarked. "I was young, inexperienced, I didn't know anybody." But she quickly found a Mass given in Spanish on Sunday nights at Holy Redeemer. And with it she found a church to call home. "I immediately felt comfortable coming here, and I found all my friendships through the church," she said, many of which continue today. "Father Edward Sullivan, a Spanish apostolate from Rockville Centre, would

Amelia Avelianeda

give the Mass at 7 p.m.," she continued.. Through the Mass she quickly found a young group of like-minded Spanishspeaking parishioners with which to organize activities such as trips, dances and other social events. "It was all social," she said of the group. "Then as I grew up the Cursillo began," she said, a worship group that would call for three-day retreats and then incorporate them into the church. "It was called a movement then," she remarked. From that she began teaching catechism and religion at the Holy Redeemer school. "Once again I was being given an opportunity to express my faith and teach it to the children, through Holy Redeemer," she said. She had come full circle. The 54-year-old Ms. Avelianeda has two boys. Walter, 18, who graduated from Carle Place High School, where Ms. Avelianeda is a Spanish teacher, will start Catholic University in Washington this fall to study music education, playing base

trombone. Christopher, 14, who also attends Carle Place High School because of contractual agreements, was baptized at Holy Redeemer. "I'm sad Walter is leaving the house, but I'm also very happy for him," she said of her son. "But," she added, "he's going home, too, because the Basillica of the Immaculate Conception is there." She praises Father Rick for providing Walter with both his spiritual and emotional balance. "Whatever Walter learned morally and spiritually here at Holy Redeemer he will carry on wherever he goes in life," she maintained. "Many times," she continued, I maintained my own stability only because I knew that in Father Rick there was a figure they could go to to trust and who would help them in their faith. There was always that fear as a mother that their faith would be hampered,'damaged by all the anger in the world." She will clearly agree with the adage that it does indeed take a village to raise a child. And now it leaves her feeling very comfortable indeed, at peace about his future. She says of her life experiences in that village called Holy Redeemer that "I became a woman here, and a professional." She was even on the parish council during her early years at the church. I find my energy here in the chapel," she said. I can come here and say thank you and I can come here and fight. That is my relationship with Jesus," the Holy Redeemer.

Judy Pedley Parishioner Judy Pedley is fortunate, she will tell you. Fortunate for her three-yearold daughter Taylor, her four-month-old daughter Jacqueline and her policeman husband Robert. Things could have been different, she says, but the 37-year old with a Master's degree in occupational therapy has kept her faith in God intact due in large measure to the work of her church in helping her accept the things she cannot change, while living more peacefully with the things she can. "I was born in Staten Island, then moved to Metuchen in New Jersey before I moved to Floral. Park when I was 14," she said of her early history. But it's a history infused with "the warmth of religion," she said, as she went to Catholic school and attended church regularly. Indeed, her younger brother is a deacon at a local church in Bellerose, Queens. After marrying on August 15, 1998, on the Feast of the Assumption, she moved into her Freeport bay house, its high ceiling revealing the upper living quarters through wrought-iron bannisters. "I wanted to get some connection to the community," she said of her' reason to seek a church in Freeport, just as she had found connection through her church in Floral Park. While intimidated by the largeness of Holy Redeemer upon first visiting it, "I also realized very quickly it had a cozy feel to it, everyone knew each other, I loved the family Mass from Father Rick. When saying The Lord's Prayer, everyone held hands, and I had never done that before," she continued. She praises Father Rick for his work ' with the children, "inviting them up to the altar, getting down on the floor with them, talking the gospel to the children in ways they can understand." , She said that as her own spirituality has grown, her relationship with the Holy Redeemer Church has become more meaningful. Much of her mature development was a direct result of the challenges of child-bearing, such as pregnancy complications with Taylor in which she didn't know what the outcome would be. "That's

when I started praying, and developing a closer relationship with God through the church," she said. "Even, when 1 walked into the church alone, just looking at that beautiful cross with the dove and the hand reaching down I came to realize that

Judy Pedley

regardless of what happened I would find peace." With her mother serving as her role model in promoting a religious education and a moral life, it was only natural Ms. Pedley would attempt to pass on those qualities to Taylor - once she was born. "Now, Taylor asks questions such as what the bells mean when they ring," she said. In the days immediately following September 11, when she admitted to crying in the pews - "It was the safest place to go," - unable, really, to comprehend the comfort of Father Rick's words to his parishioners, she had a miscarriage. "I was asked to join the Ministry Of Mothers Sharing (MOMS) after my miscarriage. I knew I needed something at that moment. The group, started by Brenda Pistani, Karen Colgan and Barbara Eberst, supported mothers in their need to find spirituality and joy in the ministry of their families," she said. Through the group she found the "strength of peace." "I began to find real joy in being with my daughter, no matter how she behaved, and in working with and being with other members of my family." Of the September 11 tragedy, she would say only that it was God's work to bring those caught in the collapse home, the mystery of their needs with Him at that precise moment known only to Him. Currently at work as a private contractor for the Merrick school board, she concluded of her belief in the Holy Redeemer, and its affect on her life, "It's in the most difficult hours that I have felt the touch of God's hand, and it is the church that has brought me close enough to feel that touch."

OHR reaches out to the community! by Michael Gertner As Our Holy Redeemer church celebrates its 100th anniversary this weekend, parishioners will experience two days of events honoring their clergymen who have devoted every minute of their time to the development of their church. But there is another group of 50-plus volunteers who also sacrifice their time and work somewhat more behind the scenes to ensure quality of life. These volunteers are part of Holy Redeemer's Parish Outreach Center, which provides services for all residents of Freeport and -its immediate vicinity regardless of religious affiliation. Beginning over 25 years ago, the Outreach Center has organized a number of different social services that contribute most essentials to people in need of them. Outreach Director Deacon Francisco Cales, a long standing parish member since 1978, believes that the services the center provides do not just help people in the short-term, they teach them how to become more self-sufficient and manage on their own. "From the time Outreach doors opened in 1976, our mission is to enable our clients to realize their dignity as people through education, encouragement and self-empowerment." These words, reflected in the Outreach service statement and echoed by Deacon Francisco, embody the message that the center works so hard to maintain. They don't just want to donate items to their clients, they want to help them live on their own.

. What makes the Outreach Center unique from other social programs is the extensive amount of services they provide. While food and clothing are their largest departments and receive the most attention, the center provides a number of other essential services such as financial, medical and legal counseling. "Whatever the issue may be, we're here to provide assistance," Deacon Francisco said. "It could be the most . simple thing or the most complicated." And the outreach center does intervene in complicated issues, such as housing and immigration issues that plague non U.S. citizens that make up the bulk of its clientele. "If we can't solve the problem ourselves, then we'll try to intervene with another agency who can have a greater affect on our client," Deacon Francisco explained. Among the outside agencies the out^ reach center has contacted are the Department of Social Services for housing issues and regional medical centers for health information. The outreach center also brings in an immigration service representative twice a week who provides information free of charge. Deacon Francisco noted that the extension into outside avenues that clients might not know were provided for them has led to an increase in the amount of people using these services. "Last month we had our annual health fair, and we realized that each year we've had more people coming than the previous year," he said. What distinguishes Deacon

Pastoring to the community - Father Kick by Douglas Finlay Presiding over the centennial of a cherished parish, Father Rick Figliozzi thought about the importance of this milestone. He searched for the most inspirational scriptural passage that could convey precisely what belies the works brought forth by Our Holy Redeemer Church over its 100 years. "Chapter 10 of Matthew's gospel, verse 8, reads: What you have received as a gift, give as a gift." The passage is, -he said, what Holy Redeemer Church's centennial is all about. Administering to his parish at Holy Redeemer for 15 years, Father Rick began his work at the church as associate pastor, maintaining that position for five years before becoming full pastor. "I was assigned by Bishop John McGann to Holy Redeemer. My first six years I served at the St. Frances De Chantal Church in Wantagh, with three years at St. Vincent DePaul Church in Elmont before coming here." "The mission of Holy Redeemer is to nurture the faith life of the Catholic people here, through the sacraments of the church, and through teaching and preaching," explained the priest. "We also provide for the basic necessities of those who come here, such as food, clothing, medicine, housing and immigration services, putting our faith into action."' He added that "for those searching for God, it was also part of the mission to assist them in finding Him. These missions and visions never change," he said. Being responsible for perpetuating and furthering .both the mission and the ,

vision of the church, he remains sensitive and aware of the needs of the people coming to the parish. While society changes, both the word of God and what Holy Redeemer can.offer remains steadfast, though those offerings may

indeed expand and change from time to time. "The number of Hispanic people has increased substantially, so I brought in a bilingual director for our parish outreach program, and a bilingual director for our religious education program for our children," he said of one significant change at Holy Redeemer through the years. And, because of recent influx of C atholics of African ancestry, "we had

exhorts those to give back the gift of God's grace as it is received. It could easily be understood as a celebration of opening up one's heart to God even in the midst of suffering and finding peace and God's grace within. "We celebrate so that even in the midst of darkness and tragedy there is a light that shines. That light is the seed of faith planted in that person's life through an act of charity or passed

through their parents. It is part of the 2000-year old history of the Church; it is part of the 100-year celebration of the Holy Redeemer," he continued. "And the 100-year celebration is about sharing that faith, that light, with others, as Jesus instructed his disciples to do." "There is a responsibility of every Catholic, through the goodness and sincerity of their lives, to try to influence society as a whole," he said. "The grace of God is the presence of God within us. It is only through the sacraments of the church that they will receive the grace of God." â&#x20AC;˘ Father Rick appeared to delineate between emotional and spiritual wellbeing by saying that, while one can feel tranquil, at peace within ones surroundings, when those surroundings are in turmoil, one can still feel the peace that derives from the grace of God. Father said the corporal works of mercy, part of the church's many programs, involve reaching out to those in need and serving those needs, whether it is clothing, food, medicine, rides to doctors and even immigration assistance. He said other parishes of different denominations in the neighborhood help assist Holy Redeemer as it provides for the needs of its parishioners. He spoke about the- success of getting volunteers to help in the soup kitchen on Saturdays. It was so successful that it spurred the Lutheran church in Merrick to help on Sundays. "Three different, churches, as well as the Lutheran church, now. come by when (continued on page 9)

But the community, Catholics and nonCatholics, pitched in and had the new school built in a matter.of weeks. The 1960s were a time of growth and change for both-the church and the community at large. In 1962 the Diocese recognized the growing number of Spanish speaking people and began offering Spanish classes.

Troy Koubek, 29, of Ozone Park, is charged with Grand Larceny. According to Mr. Dillon, "The victim, a 79-year-old woman diagnosed with cancer, received approximately $100,000 from the sale of her Baldwin house following the death of her husband. When she confided in the defendant, who rented an apartment in the same house as her, that she had been charged an early withdrawal penalty when she withdrew some of that money from the Dime Savings Bank in Baldwin, he told her that he worked in the securities industry and offered toinvest the remaining $80,000 for her. He told her that she would earn $900 a month from the investments initially, but that the amount would eventually increase to $1,200 a month. On February 28, 2001, the victim gave the defendant a check in the amount of $80,000. He told her he was going .to deposit it into his own account, Exit Records, Inc., but would later transfer the funds for the investment. _'". "Shortly thereafter, and until May, 2002, the victim received monthly checks in the amount of $1,200 written' on an account called World Ventures. However, when she later began requesting monthly statements of her investment, the defendant told her that her records had been destroyed in the September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center. Then, the April and May 2002 checks were returned for insufficient funds. When the victim contacted the defendant about this, he took all of her, paperwork, telling her he needed to have his lawyer look it over. Despite promising to have copies made and returned to her, he never did so. On June 6, 2002, the victim filed a complaint with the Securities and Exchange Commission. On June 27, 2002, she observed the defendant moving out of his apartment, and she has never heard from him again. "Analysis of bank records revealed that.the victim's $80,000 check had been deposited into an Exit Records account at North Fork Bank. Between February 6, 2001, when the account was opened, and July 3h 2001, when it was closed due to insufficient funds and an overdraft, there were numerous ATM withdrawals and personal checks drawn on the account. These included a rent-payment, payments to Allstate Insurance, lease payments to BMW Financial Services, a $17,000 deposit into a Charles Schwab account, two checks totaling $11,000 to a former girlfriend of the defendant, and numerous checks cashed by the defendant himself." The charges are merely accusations, and the defendant is presumed innocent 'until and/unless proven guilty.

Zapson sponsors law to regulate fishing tournaments

It has been just over a year ago that four life-long fishermen died off the Coast of Nassau County while participating in a fishing tournament in the waters off of Freeport that proceeded despite a dangerous weather forecast. The decision to compete, .despite the small craft advisory, was up to the individual fisherman, but once out on the rough waters, these four men were not able to make it back to shore. * To prevent a tragedy like this from reoccurring, Nassau County Legislator Michael Zapson (D-4th District) announced legislation which would prohibit a fishing tournament from starting after the National Weather Service has issued a small craft advisory.

At a July 8 press conference held at East Marina in Point Lookout, Mr. Zapson stated that the law will require fishing tournament headquarters to register with the marine bureau of the Nassau County Police Department five days before the tournament. The headquarters must supply pertinent information, such as day, time and place of the tournament, name of director, list of participants and contact information for all participants in the event that the tournament needs to be delayed or cancelled. Mr. Zapson was joined at the Point Lookout Marina by Toni Wright, the widow of Robert Wright, one of the fishermen who lost his life during last year's fishing tournament.

w

"We must assure the safety of anyone who participates in a sanctioned tournament," Legislator Zapson said. "Some of these individuals are just recreational fisherman who go out there and compete for fun. Preventing boats from going out into the sea, when the National Weather . Service has advised against it, is clearly a measure that must be taken." A "small craft advisory" is the lower tier of a three-tier advisory, system employed by the weather service. The warning is issued when winds exist in excess of 25 knots and the seas reach around "or greater than five feet. During this sort of inclement weather there is heightened danger posed to offshore

tournament participants and' their property. ' The legislation has already passed unanimously through committee and will be voted on in the full legislature at a future meeting. The Marine Bureau of the Nassau County Police Department would enforce the proposed law, with fines up to $5,000 for a corporation per violation, or $1,000 for an individual. A person or entity found guilty will also be restricted from operating or organizing a fishing tournament for one year.. "Hopefully this will avoid a similar tragedy 'from striking again in Nassau County," Mr. Zapson said.
