Nautical Mile neighbors air complaints at village board meeting by Jim Golding Quality-of-life issues along, the 1° Nautical Mile were raised at-Monday's OH Village Board meeting by Frances Fusco, Jill Carroll, Nancy Caracciolo, Robert Taylor, and Doris Katz, who vented their frustrations and called for better enforcement against the violators. 60 Ms. Fusco cited one restaurant in particular that she said violates prohibitions against loud music that exceed permitI ted decibel levels, has a bar that serves patrons on an outside deck of the establishment and has an awning installed without a permit. W She jokingly offered to' host a barbeQ cue on the deck of her home for the trustees so they could witness the loud w music and other violations for themselves. "We need our quality of life back," she pleaded. Village Attorney Harrison Edwards said the restaurant owner had submittedan application to the Planning Board for, the outdoor bar and awning,'which' were' put in place before the approval process had been completed. • .' ' "The owner received a letter from the superintendent of buildings to remove the awning and the bar," said Mr. Edwards. He said a summons was issued and that "Supreme Court action will be started if they're not removed by the end of the week." Mrs. Caracciolo, • representing G.L.O.W. Civic Association, a group of South Freeport homeowners, spoke about parking and safety concerns, the illegal installation of outdoor canopies and the "unnecessary noise level" coming from businesses along the Woodcleft Canal. • ' • "The decibel level- has not been

£

adhered to for two years," despite her many complaints to the Police Department, she said. "Why does their (the restaurants) profit infringe upon my life?" said Mrs. Caracciolo.. "If we have'to go to court to force them to remove (the canopies), we will." said Mayor William F. Glacken.' The mayor also explained at one'point that the chief of police had met earlier in the year with several restaurant owners along the Nautical Mile to discuss compliance with Village laws affecting their operations but that "stricter action, may be necessary." He added that, "if compliance is not forthcoming, we will be in State Supreme Court to get an injunction." Mr. Taylor complained about excessive noise from motorcycles in the Nautical Mile area and called for stronger police enforcement. . . Chief Michael Woodward responded that,' during a recent "dedicated law ( • enforcement, 'effort" along Woodcleft, ' • officers issued numerous tickets for traf-, fie violations and that "about half were • .' against motorcycles." • '. Regarding the overall noise problem Chief Woodward said officers patrol the • area to monitor the noise, but at the approach of a police car, businesses turn down the volume until it has left the area. He met with several of the concerned residents after the meeting to discuss further enforcement efforts. Commenting on the traffic and parking situation along the Nautical Mile, Mayor Glacken said the Village is "in the process of creating more municipal parking, particularly at the south end of • Woodsidei" which may take a year or more to complete, along with other •options-such as shared parking facilities

with other organizations not'using their parking spaces after business hours. Following up on the issue of PCBs at the Power Plant 2 site that Stewart Lilker raised at the July 21 trustees, meeting, he asked abou'. the status of construction at the site and the amount of contaminants present there. Electric Department Superintendent Hubert Bianco said construction actually had not begun and that it was his decision to postpone further work there until the PCB contaminants are removed. Reviewing the history of the issue. Mr. Bianco said soil sampling was done in 1993 and the amount of PCBs discovered was fewer than 10 parts per million. He said the "correct action" then was to cover the contaminated area with two feet of soil, "which we did." However, he said recent additional sampling in.one area showed a reading "greater than 50 PPM," which slate Department of Environmental Conservation rules re.quire that the soil be removed'. Mr. Bianco reemphasized that the . plant project was "hot shut down. The project was delayed by my.self until -the :.

RGBs are removed from the site." Mayor.Glacken added. "The situation is being dealt with in the proper manner. It is not going to be a problem. It will lake a little more lime to remove the soil and replace it with fresh fill. The plant will be built within all the applicable rules and 'regulations." Vincent Greco, who lives across from the power plant site and on several occasions in the past has expressed his concerns about the health effects of PCBs on humans and marine life, urged that they "should be removed from (he site completely." Mr. Lilker "went on to ask the status of the lawsuit filed last year against Freeport by Attorney General Eliot Spitzer. The allorney general filed the lawsuit against ihe village Oct. 4 for unconstitutional and discriminatory housing inspections after an 18-month investigation. The suit alleges that village housing inspectors' violated constitutional .•"search and seizure: rules and anti-discrimination laws against Latino residents in conducting housing code (continued on next page )

Nautical Mile neighbors air complaints at village board meeting from previous page inspections." .. . . . Mr. Lilker asked if the Village was willing to negotiate a settlement rather than to go to court. Village Attorney Harrison Edwards explained the Village's position regarding the lawsuit and the possibility of appeals by either side if the case goes to court. The Village had filed a motion last year to have the suit dismissed. "We're open to negotiate with them," (attorney .general's office), said the mayor, but added that he thinks "the attorney general doesn't have a case."

Regular business One agenda item that drew an impassioned response from an audience member was the board's approval to transfer nearly $58,000 in Community

Development Agency funds between CDBG Program Year accounts and to create a new budget line item for special economic development. "I'm concerned about where and how community development funds are spent," said Eileen Weaver. Mrs. Weaver urged that more funds be spent in low-income areas, "mostly north" of Sunrise Highway and "particularly in the northeast." She asked how much is being spent for commercial development north of Sunrise and how many residences in northeast Freeport are receiving funds for rehabilitation. Ellen Kelley, director of the Community Development Agency, said the funds, which were transferred from older program years had not been spent and were being used for commercial

rehabilitation in the central business district, .. "Virtually all businesses in the central business district are minority-owned." Mayor Glacken noted during the discussion. Mrs. Weaver acknowledged that past community development rehabilitation projects represent major improvements in Freeport. especially in the south part of the village, "but we have other parts of (his village that need attention." Although Ms. Kelly could not provide specific numbers on how many residences in the northeast have undergone •rehabilitation, she said "the first 50 of 150 (houses) targeted have been identified." She added, "We have a long waiting list and every home owner in the northeast was given notice (about the availability

of funds) with their electric bills." In other action on the. agenda items trustees: • Authorized advertising for bids for several items of equipment for the Electric Department, including relay lest equipment, annual underground work, tree .proof aerial splicer cable and a new 35.000-pound truck with two buckets and a 46-foot double-bucket material handling aerial device. • Amended traffic regulations to add a slop sign at Randall Avenue and Wallace Street. • Approved a joint-funding agreement of $10,140 with the U.S. GeologicalSurvey for a tide-stage gauge at the entrance of Hudson Bay from Oct. I. 2003 to Sept. 30. 2004. (continued on page 9)

by Joan Delaney AFFORDABLE HOUSING MEANS?....People have different reactions when they hear the term "affordable housing." Many, particularly those who grew up in the boroughs of New York City, confuse the term with "low-cost housing." They envision high-rise projects of great density and think of the decline of surrounding neighborhoods that accompanied so many of these developments. That's not what affordable housing is. The term refers to housing for people whose income is 80 percent or lower than the median income of the area. In the case of Nassau/Suffolk, this would include housholds earning less than $66,(XX).

•.

•.

,

j

According to statistics supplied by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), a family of four earning $66,(XX) technically should pay no more man $190,680 fora home! Currently, the median home value on Long Island is $3(X),(XX). The fair market rent, which HUD sets at 35 percent of the'grOss household income for high income areas like Nassau/Suffolk, should be $1045 for one bedroom and $ 1,275 for two bedrooms. The problem is obvious. Not only is housing one of the major problems facing the unemployed poor, it is a major problem for working people. It is also a major problem economically for the Nassau/Suffolk • area since many businesses will not locale here because their employees could not find adequate affordable housing.

Informational programs on - affordable housing show the categories of working people for whom housing is a problem. They include teachers, nurses, and almost all college graduates beginning their working careers. At the other end of the spectrum are senior citizens, looking to downsize their living accommodations and finding it difficult, if not impossible, to find housing within their fixed income budgets. There is a saying , "If you build it, they will come." For years many suburbanites subscribed to the opposite. "It you don't build it, they will not come." The "they" were an assortment of types that many did not want living in their communities. Too many suburbanites were content that these workers provide services for the more affluent but they didn't want "them" living here. What many suburbanites didn't reali/.e, however, is that the "them" would include their own children who couldn't find jobs locally because businesses would not locale here. They didn't realize that the "they" would include their parents who couldn't find suitable retirement housing. Meanwhile, people needing affordable housing struggled as best they could. Some landlords took advantage of their plight. And so we see single-family homes illegally converted lo multi-family use. We see Ihe small quantities of rental housing carved up into small apartments. And we see more than one family in many of these units struggling to pay the rents which are still not affordable for only one income. How ironic. The "they" whom people were trying to keep out are here; the problem is that instead of living in clean, well-

planned, affordable housing, they are living in illegal, sub-standard housing, paying "off the books" rents to landlords whose properties are- not being properly taxed to reflect the extra town and school services required for their tenants. Towns are now being asked to come up with comprehensive plans based on statistical needs. While there is much technical data that must be accumulated and while communication between towns and developers must be coordinated, something more is needed! Political leaders, community activists and residents must work together for greater understanding. Resident fears concerning a decline of property values must be addressed. Any affordable housing plans must contain a clear and ongoing monitoring process so that residents know that necessary code enforcement will take place, without the headaches that presently exist. It is very easy for all of us to have emotional, knee-jerk reactions to sensitive issues. In the case of affordable housing, the first step must be a real education process so that everyone knows what it is, and most especially, what it is not. A comprehensive survey, cost-shared by the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Hempstead several years ago, pointed out tliauhe main thoroughfares of Baldwin did not reflect the personal wealth of the community. How different Baldwin would now look if instead of the unregulated proliferation of shoddy and shabby residential units along our main streets, a

War on gangs To The Leader: As a candidate for Nassau County" Legislature, J plan to declare war against street gangs in our communities once elected. It is my goal to see as many of the major players as possible locked up. This must be achieved. Our Nassau County Police Commissioner and elected county officeholders must join forces ,with officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Agency. This task force of local and federal law enforcement officers must concentrate their efforts 24/7 in the Baldwin, Freeport and JHempstead communities. We should accept nothing less. - Enough is enough! People are afraid and, in some instances, local teens have been attacked. We should not sacrifice one inch of our neighborhoods to the Latin Kings, Bloods, Crips or any other group of unscrupulous individuals. Drugs, guns and ammunition must be' taken off our streets immediately and the thugs dealing in them must be arrested ; and placed behind bars. With gang-related activity on the rise throughout the county, we must be aggressive and pro-active. As Legislator , for the 5th District, I will do everything

from page 5 comprehensive plan of affordable housing had been undertaken. The residential portion of our "downtown" could have been a real thriving mixed-use jewel - well located for young commuters, affordable for lower income workers, with transportation, shopping, library, and churches in walking distance for senior citizens. Instead, the primary face of Baldwin is blighted with rental housing that detracts rather than enhances and with too many absentee landlords indifferent to quality of life issues. . As public officials plan for the future, with affordable housing for working people a high priority, let us do our part to become educated and to communicate intelligently with our legislators.

lottors to thio oditor •8 from page 6 radar screen in July. That is 44,000 hard working people who have suddenly lost their incomes. Let's review some very recent history of this Corrupter/ConArtist-In-Chief George W. Bush. Just this year, Mr. Bush pushed through a second tax cut of some $700 billion. That's billion please, folks, riot million. As he was pushing that program through with all the zealousness of a Yale University fraternity cheerleader, he was insisting that this added tax cut would add more than one million new jobs by election time 2004. Honest, folks. That was all publicly reported. Just two years before that, in 2001, he pushed through the biggest tax cut this nation has seen in 25 years, and he was touting more jobs and more jobs. Mr. Bush showed he was either confused or just plain telling deliberate falsehoods. Since that infamous 2001 tax cut and now coupled with this recent second tax cut addition, there has been a continual build-up of jobs lost, and the number,

with the above recent July addition, is now over 1.8 million jobs lost. That, folks, is a lot of people out of work.. Those are people who need that income, who need to keep working, but can't. When Mr. Bush was saying more jobs and more jobs, what has really happened - he is right. There has been more jobs • and more jobs - lost, that is lost and not gained. Between 1993 and 2000, the previous administration showed fiscal responsibility by reducing the national debt that the previous President George Bush (the father) had left us. In fact the debt was reduced to beyond zero to a major surplus, that George W. immediately squandered. Also during that period since our government was showing fiscal responsibility, there was a job growth of twenty-million new jobs. Now please don't get me started on Iraq. In my opinion, George W. Bush misled us purposely about these alleged weapons of mass destruction. There (continued on page 14)

Freeporters explore the wreck of the Andrea Doria by Bill and Nornia Braun 60

The Italian luxury liner Andrea Doria made worldwide headlines when it was sunk in a collision with the Swedish liner Stockholm in July 1956. Of the roughly 1,700 passengers and crew aboard her, all but 51 were saved in 00 what has been called the greatest rescue ^at sea in maritime history. ^civSince the 1980s,.a small but fervent group 'of scuba divers have visited her 3 remains each summer to explore, take photographs and recover artifacts. But make no mistake, this isn't diving for faint-of-heart. Four books have been C* u the Q published .about the risks involved in diving the Andrea Doria. Because of its depth, sea conditions and lure of enter-. w ing her maze-like interior, she's considered by many to be "the Mount Everest of diving." The Freeport-based dive boat Sea Hunter III recently returned from a 3 day expedition to the Andrea Doria. Cocaptains Sal Arena, John Bricker and Wes Carman III report that in all, 13 divers made a successful • and safe ' exploration of the 700-foot wreck

'which lies in 250 feet of water 60 miles off Nantucket.. • "When we arrived at the wreck site on the morning of July 16, we encountered a very strong current which prevented us from diving right.away," explained Captain Carman. "But after a 4 hour wait, it subsided and our divers,made it down to the wreck where visibility was about 25 feet and' the temperature around 48 degrees.' We saw lots of marine life out there, including sharks and schools of dolphin." Many on this trip are veteran divers of "The Doria" (as it is called by thosefamiliar with her). For seven of the participants, however, this was their first Doria dive. Considering the dive a sought-after achievement, each completed extensive training in this type of scuba diving which requires special procedures and equipment. "The big news on this trip is the condition of the wreck," says Mark Silverstein, first mate on the Sea Hunter III and a veteran of 50 Doria dives. "Most of the promenade deck has collapsed, owing to her near 50-year submersion and.the fact that she rests on

her side. The hole that Peter Gimbelcul into her hull years ago to extract the Bank of Rome safe is completely gone now. He further explains: "The>ship wasn't built to withstand the stresses caused by being in that abnormal -position. We'll probably

now see an accelerated process of clele"rioralion as more and more of her structure weakens." What does this mean to future divers of the Doria'? Mr. Silverstein says "It's (continued on page 15)

When Mark Raifman entered, medical school in Guadalajara, Mexico, he began*a medical career that would focus on provid=j ing quality medical care to the under' served. After completing his pediatric residency in 1976, Dr. Raifman took a position at Peninsula General Hospital in Far Rockaway, a medical facility located in a health manpower shortage area, (HMSA) working with the Hispanic community. As a bi-lingual pediatrician, Dr. Raifman brought a sense of comfort and reassurance to the often frightened children in the emergency room when he spoke to them in their own language. Today, Dr. Raifman is still reaching out to help the underserved population. The South Ocean Care health center at 101 South Bergen Place is celebrating its first year of operation with a free Health Fair on August 9 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fair will offer .a variety of free testing for youngsters and adults, including blood pressure screening, vision and hearing exams, .along with many other services, at the center and in the parking lot adjacent to

Andrea Doria wreck from page 10 both good and had. It's good in the sense thai there'll he less opportunity to penetrate the wreek and search for artifacts in a dangerous "overhead" environment. It's also had because who knows how many artifacts will be lost forever under collapsed parts of the ship?" As for artifacts, among those recov-. ered this lime out were a 3' X 5' brass

promenade deck window salvaged by Capt. Carman and crewman Vladimir Golovalsky. Frank Pellegrino, a diver for the NYPD Scuba Team, brought up a beautiful first-class silver bread basket inscribed with the Italian Line emblem. For more information on local wreck diving, log on to www.seahunler.org. The wreck of the Andrea Doria will be featured in an upcoming episode of "Deep Sea Detectives" on The History Channel.
