When will Freeport's Power Plant 2 shut down?

llV I .fllim £f*ttflf**l* by Laura Schofer Part II Work began on September 9 to remove the PCB-coiilaminaled soils at Power Plant 2. On September 3 a legislative hearing was held before slate's Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Administrative Law Judge Molly McBride. The hearing, requested by the Village of Freeport concerns the DEC's intention to modify the Title V Air Permit of the Village of Freeporl Power Plant 2. Mr. Hubert Bianco, Superintendent 'of Freeport Electric, in his pre-llled direct testimony, slated that he was aware (if PCB contamination at Power Plant 2 as far back as in 1992-1993. Power Plant 2 is constructed on the site of an old municipal landfill closed in the 1950s. Polychlorinaled byphenyls (PCBs) are a mixture of individual chemicals which are no longer produced in the United Stales but are still found in the environment. According to a report issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, "Health effects that have been associated with exposure lo PCBs include acne-like skin condition in adults and neiirobehavioral and immunolqgical changes in children. PCBs are known to cause can-

cer in animals." 'The report also stales lhal-'.'PCBs do nol readily break down in (he environment and thus may remain there for very long periods of lime. PCBs can travel long distances in the air and be deposited in areas far away from where Ihey were released. In water, a small amount of PCBs may remain dissolved but most stick lo organic particles and boltom sedimenls. PCBs also bind strongly to soil." • . "That | initial 1 investigation revealed relatively low levels of PCB,"' said' Mr. Bianco in his pre-trial testimony. "Basically.'lhe approved remediation provided was lor placing two feel of clean 111! at the site. The DEC also required ihe submission of a soil management plan if future construction aclivilies were undertaken at the site that would disturb subsurface soils," said Mr. Bianco in his testimonyIn a March 14, 1994, letter. Alex Moskie, a Sanitation Engineer for the DEC, wrote a letter lo Jeffrey C. Gen/er and Tanj M. Shinkwiler of Duncan,* Weinberg, Miller & Pembroke, attorneys representing Freeporl Electric, saying their present work-plan was approved'. -The 'letter goes on lo say thai "Any wasle beneath the existing cover, that after excavation , will be disposed of within the same laivl<-*<»r in 'in!ivi«itc* "

fill's existing footprint, will, fall under the exemption stated in 6 NYCRR. Section 360-1.7 (h) (9) provided that a workplan for this activity is pre-approved by the department. A work-plan should include, hut nol be limited lo, the quantity and type of waste, interim storage, plans showing where the waste comes from and where it will be relocated to and an explanation of measures that will be taken in order to prevent odors, dusts, and any other; harmful effects to,hea|th and the environment." . Paul W.t Grosser,, ap environmental engineering consultant for,the-Village of Freeport, says his firm, G.P.W. Grosser Consulting, look four soil, samples from borings collected on the site in 1993. "PCBs were detected at slightly elevated conccnlralions," he said in his pre-filed direct testimony. "Specifically, one sample taken in the interval of up lo two feet


•below the surface from one boring report.ed a concentration of I ; per million ("ppm") of PCBs in soil above the then applicable DEC guidance value for PCBs of l.O ppm in surface soils." He,added in his testimony that "The highest value taken at the site was 6.4 ppm, taken from a sample located on the other side of the existing facility." Then in 2001 the firm TRC was hired for .a Phase 2 Environmental Assessment. According to Mr. Grosser's testimony, TRC evaluated the reports of 1992 and 1993 bul did not lake additional soil sampling. GFS, the contractor which has been hired to build the power plant, put together a soil management plan that they sent the DEC. In July of 2(X)3 Anthony Cava of the . DEC sent a letler to the Village of, (continued on cage 8)

Guest Editorial Freeport Electric prepares for *. Hurricane Isabel From Freeport Electric

With Blackout 2003 just behind the Village, the Electric Department has been in a heightened state of preparations for Hurricane Isabel. In addition- to-routine annual training and contingency plans, the utility has been organizing significant supplemental emergency measures. • - • ' • ' Each year in anticipation of the fall hurricane season; the Freeporl Electric Department conducts training for survey teams. This annual training was completed in August to (re)train department staff for survey and inspection of the distribution lines to' identify problem areas during storms. In addition, the Electric Department leased.additional equipment that might be necessary to repair or replace damaged utility poles. The Department arranges this annual rental, as the phone company, which routinely provides labor and equipment support pole replacements, may have difficulty providing that support in a severe storm. With news of Isabel's path and Strength, Freeport Electric has implemented specific preparations, and established specific contingency plans for staff and materials. The Electric Department staff has completed a survey of all utility facilities, located and removed or anchored loose equipment. All generating equipment has been inspected for readiness. The utility has brought in extra materials, distribution wire, and diesel fuel to support immediate operations and repairs. . Additional Village Electric Department personnel have been scheduled to maintain the Village diesel units, and to perform electric and mechanical work, as well as survey of the distribution system. Emergency food and supplies are being stockpiled to support the utility workers working through or following the storm event. Extra toolboxes have been set up for repair teams. Freeport Electric has contacted other municipal utilities in the state and region to arrange for extra manpower from outside the storm-affected region. Arrangements are being made with local hotels for Housing those outside support personnel. •• As the Village experienced in the August blackout, it may be necessary to operate the Power Plant 2 diesel units if dispatched by LIPA, or in the event that LIRA service to the Village is lost. LIPA has projected that service restoration following a hurricane may take an extended number of days. During the August 2003 blackout, LIPA service was restored to Freeport after 30 hours, during which time the Village relied on electricity - only its own generating units at Power Plants I and 2.

Red Cross hurricane safety tips With the potential threat Hurricane Isabel poses to Long Island, the American Red Cross in Nassau County (ARC/Nassau) offers the following safety information to help keep families * safe: ..

Red Cross Hurricane WATCH Tips • Listen to a battery-operated radio of television for hurricane progress reports. • Check emergency supplies. • Fuel car. • Bring in outdoor objects sucli as lawn furniture, toys and garden tools, anchor objects that cannot be brought inside. • Secure building by closing and boarding up windows. • Remove outside antennas. • Turn refrigerator and freezer to coldest setting. Open only when absolutely necessary and close quickly.

Red Cross Hurricane WARNING Tips • Listen constantly to a battery-operated radio or television for official instructions. • If in a mobile home, check tiedowns and evacuate immediately. • Store valuables and personal papers in a waterproof container on the highest level of your home. • Avoid elevators. If at home: • Stay inside, away from windows, skylights and glass doors. • Keep a supply of flashlights and extra batteries handy.

• Avoid using open flames, such as candles and kerosene lamps, as a source of light. • If power is lost, turn off appliances to reduce power surge when electricity is restored. If officials indicate evacuation is necessary: • If time permits, and you live in an identified surge /.one. elevate furniture or move it to a higher floor lo protect it from Hooding. • Secure your home by unplugging appliances and turning off electricity and the main water valve. . ' . • Bring pre-assembled emergency supplies and warm protective clothing. Take blankets, sleeping bags and prescription medicines to shelter. • Tell someone outside of your storm area where you are going. • Lock your home and leave immediately. • Avoid Hooded roads and watch for washed-out bridges.

Red Cross Safety Tips After Landfall • Stay tuned to local radio for information. • Help injured or trapped persons. Call for help and give appropriate first aid. Don't move the seriously injured unless they are in immediate danger of further injury. • Drive only if absolutely necessary and avoid Hooded roads and washed-out bridges. . • Use telephone only for emergency calls. • Return home only after authorities advise that it is safe to do so and: (continued on page 14)

jUSt V\/rit@ b>y joon dolaney TRUE. THEN AND NOW I happened to he looking over a copy of The Leader from January. 1987, jusl before that year's village elections. In the "Round-About with Rhoda" column which was written every week by managing editor and co-owner Rhoda Keller, there was a comment regarding the responsibilities of reporting during volatile political limes. She described the periods that are hectic for certain businesses - between Thanksgiving and Christmas for retail businesses and summertime for hotels and resorts. She then added: "...but for me, 1 lose my most sleep the two months before a village election. Not thai I don't enjoy it...I do, even my own complaining. There are benefits and there are, on the other hand, disadvantages. It's nice to know people are hanging on my every word; but it's difficult to work or to write when you have to worry that a misplaced comma does not just made an awkward sentence, hul changes the meaning of a candidate's whole platform: So bear with us anil remember thai everyone at The Leader is trying his and her best to bring you full pre-election coverage." Those of us who worked with Rhcxla know well her intense interest and delight in things political. Those of us still writing also know that if Rhoda's words were Irue

then, they are even truer now. Although we are not approaching village elections, we are now beginning the coverage for regular November elections, a time of headaches not only for the politicians but for those of us who cover them and the issues. In some ways, community papers have an even greater burden than do the large daily papers, which have seemingly unlimited resources and tremendous access lo" candidates. Local papers musl sland in line as we iry lo galher the kind of information lhal our readers need to make informed decisions. Il is not necessary for us to replicate the general information or the "spin" lhal fills daily papers and broadcasls. For us, the issues are more specific, and residents of our communities want lo know how an clecled official, particularly al the town or county level (and in March at the village level), will deal wilh those local problems lhal impacl residents most directly. When reporters from The Leader attend local meetings, it is iheir job to accurately report wlial happens. Il is not ethical for them to filler out Ihe disagreements and arguments that might transpire. Having said thai, there is no way we can report each and every comment, question or discussion mat takes place during a meeting lhal can lasl Iwo, Ihree or more hours. Therefore we must edit for length

while still presenting the main facts and lone of the meeting to readers. 1 remember years ago at a Baldwin Board of Education meeting, after hours of intense heated disagreement and after midnight, one board member stormed out of the meeting, slamming the door as he left. This was highly unusual. I reported that he left in anger. At the next meeting, the board member decried .ihe'reporting lhat pielured him as "angry." I later advised Kim privately lhal as an elected public official, he did not have the luxury of behaving as he did publicly withoul being aware lhal his behavior would be described and reported. While it is not easy being a public official, il is also not easy reporting on~public affairs. In interviews with local candidates, 1 have sometimes slopped taking noles to ask if they wanted to reword-their comments - perhaps not the most professional thing to do but something I regard as a kindness for those political amateurs who run for office on the library or school boards and who serve wilhoul pay. Bui when comments are made at public • meetings, particularly by professional elected officials who are paid for Iheir efforts, ihen journalists cannot shirk their responsibilities. A public has the right lo know how elected officials think and behave, what

their priorilies are. to whom they feel allegiance, what their views are on important local issues, what progress is being made in solving problems and how hard they intend lo work. Public officials musl recognize that dealing with the public and ihe press - no matter how annoying it may be - is part of their job and a part that they musl learn how to handle if they are lo be successful. There are all sorts of'lalenls and skills lhal public officials musl possess if ihey are lo do iheir jobs well. The public official who doesn't believe that the abilily lo communicate clearly, honestly and politely is one of those skills is sadly mistaken. Like the Kellers who owned the paper in 1987, we al The Leader today are committed to honest and fair reporting. And like Ihe readers in 1987, today's readers, perhaps more than ever before, have ihe need to be properly informed, in news articles lhal report facls wilhoul journalistic prejudice, without sensationalism and without spin. Public officials musl be forthcoming. Journalists must make every effort to get it right. And voters have an obligation to attend public meetings and to read newspapers so they can get the information they need to lie informed citizens.

Suozzi to address Freeport Dems



discusses academics by Jim Golding


w CO

es TD E 3




Freeport school trustees spent time discussing the district's Academic Intervention Services (AIS) Plan at their monthly meeting September 10, along with dealing with the issue of two district schools - Dodd Middle School and Freeport High - in heed of improvement or experiencing academic difficulty. • But board members also learned of progress being made at both schools over the past two years. Dodd was on the Federal Title I schools in need of improvement, while FHS was on the state Department of Education's list of schools having academic difficulty in math and English. "It's something we're concerned about," said Superintendent Dr. Eric Eversley. He noted there were "substantial gains last year" at Dodd, with a 73 percent increase at levels 3 and 4 and larger gains in math. He said a school "needs two years of sustained growth" to demonstrate it lias made substantial academic progress and be removed from the list. As did school districts throughout New York, Freeport also had a dismal showing in the recent "Math A" Regents Exam, but the superintendent reported that 108 of the high school students taking the lest, who originally failed, were reevaluated and received passing scores. Trustee Sunday Coward suggested the Regents test scores not be counted as heavily toward a student's passing grade for the year. Dr. Eversley said the district is "trying to determine what other districts' are' doing" in determining how much of a percentage the exam will weigh on a student's grade. The 34-page AIS Plan will receive its second reading at the board's next action meeting. It details the district's program for addressing the academic deficiencies of 1,780 students in English Language Arts at district elementary schools, and 1,996 math students. In a discussion about the plan, Trustee Ron Ellerbe urged that parents be involved in its development and be appointed to the committee for implementing the program. During public comments, audience member Alan Jay noted his agreement with Mr. Ellerbe and also called for "non-parent taxpayers" to have input in the program. "I would like to see taxpayers [who aren't parents] on board. This represents a tremendous investment." He questioned the cost of the program and how many teachers and administrators will be involved, and expressed concern that "it is eating up tax dollars." Mr. Jay also said such programs are "helping to bankrupt stale and federal governments." School officials had no figures on the number of personnel to be used in Ihe program, bul Dr. Eversley explained thai Ihe program involves "intensive work in the classroom to diminish Ihe number of sludenls needing AIS. Our goal is lo conlinue lo slrenglhen Ihe mainstream academic classroom," he said. In other mailers, Ihe superintendent offered a glowing assessment of opening-day activities in the district, calling it "a truly spectacular opening, one of the best I've experienced." He and some trustees also had high praise for the "Welcome Back" activi-

lies, including ihe barbecue that attracted nearly 2,000 parents, teachers and sludents. Dr. Eversley also announced ihe fol-. lowing new administrators in the district who received approval from trustees. • John E O'Mard, the new principal at Dodd Middle School. • Vernex Harding, assistant principal at the Childhood Center at Columbus Avenue .School. • Estelle Weiss, director of adult continuing community education. • Dr. Nicholas Tzimopoulos, district science coordinator. In other board actions, trustees awarded a contract for a heat exchanger for the Atkinson Library and Media Center to the low bidder, Dollar Cooling Corp., for $41,800; and a contract to Domino's Pizza in Freeport for $36,574.20 worth of pizzeria pizza. The board's next action meeting on September 24 is, scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at Columbus Avenue School.

The next Freeport Democratic Club meeting will take place on Tuesday. September 23 at 7 p.m. at the Freeport Memorial Library. The guest speaker will be Nassau County Executive Thomas R. Suozzi. There will also be an opportunity lo

meet, other Democratic candidates for county office - Nassau County Legislator David Dcnenbcrg. Hempslead Town Councilwomim Dorothy Goosby. and Jeffrey Gold, a candidate for the Hempslcad Town Council.

lottors Satirically yours To The Leader: This is a satirical speech I delivered lo the Freeport Village Board on August 18. I have decided that what this country needs are more electric eels. A politician who promises an electric eel in every pot and two in every hathluh will enlighten (he world. And once Freeport becomes the boating and eel capital of America, millions of federal jobs will more from Washington to our prosperous village. Think of the shock this would inllicl on the hordes of environmentalist fanatics, stuck with their jaws shut. How could they then panic the people over eel polution? I Ibrsee only three obstacles lo this natural maritime solution: 1. 50,(XX) animal rights lawyers protesting this abuse of the eels' constitutional rights. 2. A jurisdiclional dispute between the CWA saboteurs and the electrical workers union over who extorts the dues from the unwilling eels. 3. The Lindenmere Civic Association of Merrick will no longer keep the Albany DEC busy enough, and these obstructionists to human progress will have to find real jobs. Do you know why Chrissey Whitman was fired as chief of the worthless EPA? She was forcing GE to waste $ 1.5 billion stirring up harmless PCBs from the bottom of the Hudson river. Do you realize how much electrical infrastructure GE could manufacture with $1.5 billion, if the usual suspects would get out of the way? Who are the usual suspects? A few would be the ACLU, Ralph Nader and his Green (with envy) Party, Gray-out Davis of California, the Sierra Club, and the most treacherous of them all, Madam La Farge, Hillary Clinton of New York. Since most'of our volcanoes became extinct, the main polution threatening America is intellectual and political°polution. Alan Jay

This information had to he overlaid on the sampling p location drawing in order to estimate the 5 a. amount of waste that would he removed and determine if there were areas to he excavated where PCB levels exceeded I ppm." Mr. Grosser added in his testimony that "Mr. Cava recommended additional 3 JZ sampling in order to delineate which soil must he removed from the site (i.e. that OS soil with a PCB contamination above 1 LU Q ppm) and which could he used onsite (soil < with a PCB contamination less than I UJ J ppm)." Mr. Bianco testified that "the Village PJ n: retained P.W. Grosser to conduct the necessary sampling program. The results revealed that the concentrations and extent of the PCB concentration was much greater than had been measured in 1993." Mr. Grosser testified that his firm collected "150 soil samples in two-foot inter-' vals and had them aitaly/.ed on July 8, 2(X)3." He added that additional samples were taken based upon the initial results "to define' the hori/.ontal and vertical extent of PCB contaminated soil with concentrations greater than 50 ppm. Approximately 3(X) soil samples were collected." "The results indicated PCB contamination in excess of the NYSDEC TAGM cleanup objectives of 1.0 ppm for surface soil and 10 ppm for subsurface soil in certain locations at the site. The highest PCB result was 721.9 ppm collected at locations from two to four feel below the surface. Over 20 locations reported concen- excess of 50 ppm." He added that "it is estimated that the site contains approximately 558 cubic yards of soil con-

High school on state list The stale Education Department announced that Frceporl High School has been listed among "Schools Requiring Academic Progress" for high school math and high school English EL A. Freeport is among a list of 188 schools that did not receive Title 1 funds hut are listed under stale rules as Requiring Academic Progress. Under these stale regulations. Schools Requiring Academic Progress are schools that have failed to make Adequate Yearly Progress in multiple years. These schools are required to develop plans similar to those that are developed by schools that are identified as in need of improvement or in corrective action. However, Schools Requiring Academic Progress are not required to . offer public school choice or supplemental educational services. Federal law under No Child Left Behind requires that school districts publicly announce their accountability .'status. The most recent slate test data used to make these determinations are from the 20022003 school year. This year for the first time, schools are being held accountable for the achievement of students of different races, students with disabilities, students with limited English proficiency, and low-income students. They must also have 95% of their students participate in the English and Math tests. Stale Education Commissioner Richard P. Mills said last week, "Our focus needs to be on the children. We need lo do everything possible to help them achieve the standards. The information we have provided will help schools lake a closer look al the children who still need more help." Freeport Superintendent Dr. Eric

Eversley made the following comment concerning the slale results: "The recent appearance of Freeport High School on the New York state lisl of schools requiring academic progress in English Language Arts and mathematics comes as no suiprise to us. We aclively review our performance data on a regular basis and we are certainly aware of how the education department chooses to categori/e schools throughout the stale. We are currently engaged in many efforts throughout the district to analyze our student performance data and make improvements based on the knowledge generated from lhal analysis. For example, all of our schools have School Instructional Improvement Plans thai will be revised ibis year based on the lalesl performance dala. FHS is beginning the rigorous Middle Slates Accredilalion Process that will help Ihe entire FHS community devel. op goals and strategies intended lo ensure that all FHS sludents achieve high academic standards. "Student performance as measured by state tests has been increasing by double digit percentages in our schools. For example, Dodd Middle School saw a 58 percent increase in the number of students meeting state ELA standards. Our four magnet school were all recognized by the stale last year for iheir significant improvement on stale lesls. Dislricl-wide, the number of fourth graders meeling slate ELA standards increased by 72 percent. "I'm extremely proud of our students, families, staff and administrators. Their many successes make me confident that in the very near future, both Dodd and FHS will join the ranks of the most improved."

Hubert M. Bianco, Superintendent of Electric Utilities

To our Valued Customers: he historic northeast I blackout last month was JL a test of enormous proportions for Freeport Electric and all of our customers. Thank you all for your patience and understanding as all the operations and line crews of Freeport Electric worked to restore your power and keep the lights on until our interconnection with LIPA was restored. Minutes after the blackout hit, offduty staff of Freeport Electric started arriving on their own initiative ready to help wherever needed. Our staff - your family, friends, and Freeport neighbors - worked with little or no rest over 24 hours to restore and maintain your power. It was a typical a summer afternoon. Freeport customers were drawing approximately 54 MW of electricity when the blackout hit, most of which is supplied from sources outside the Village (NYPA hydro-electric power and other market sources) and approximately 8 MW from in-Village generation. Obviously, our connection to those out-of-Village resources was severed when we were disconnected from the LIPA system. Freeport Electric immediately reacted to bring in-Village generation on line. The first unit was up and running only 8 minutes after the blackout hit. Over the next two-and-a-half hours, all units were brought on line.


vided personnel to notify customers. Thank you also for understanding that we faced hard decisions through the next day. It was critical to keep power supplied to protect public health and safety, to our traffic controls, water supply for drinking and fire protection, for sewage management, as well as to priority customers who have significant* health problems or rely on life-support equipment. During rolling blackouts scheduled through Friday, the inconvenience of an hour without power allowed us to restore your power for the next three or more hours. These rolling blackouts allowed us to manage the load through the Village and avoid any further outages. Thank you also for your cooperation in reducing your energy consumption during the crisis, shutting off lights, AC and large appliances. Freeport is extremely fortunate to have in-Village generation capability. Without it, power would have remained out until 1:00 am Saturday(approximately 30 hours) when our LIPA connection was restored. When the new generation project is completed at Power Plant 2, we will have enough generating capacity to meet demand without having to institute rolling blackouts.

Truly, in the Blackout of 2003, the Village of Freeport stood out as an oasis of light Freeport Electric is grateful in a sea of darkness. for the cooperation and conYours truly, stant communication we had Hubert Bianco with the Village Police, Fire, Superintendent of Electric and Emergency Management Utilties Departments, as well as the other departments who pro-

Curves comes to Baldwin




by Joan Delaney O O ri

_c £ OJ

a, i) on



n: H

Ladies, there's no more excuses for nol being in shape: Curves has come lo lown. Owner Lynn James-Gross and her slalT of Irainers is introducing ihe Curves philosophy to local women who have 30 minutes lo follow the cardio and strength training program. "It's really life-changing" noted Ms. James-Gross who said that through the program she has personally lost 40 pounds and gone from a si/.e 22 to a 14. ''You look at yourself and life differently," she said. The Curves program was started by Gary Havin of Texas and is the fastest growing franchise in the country. The fitness entrepreneur, who previously ran a regular fitness business, noticed that many women "had little time to devote lo fitness and often stayed clear of the strength training machines. The Curves program, geared for women only, includes strength training on a series of 12 machines interspersed with cardio workout stations. At a first meeting by appointment, a client speaks with a trainer who conducts a "figure analysis" (weight, measurements, etc.) along with a health and lifestyles hislory,.and a discussion of realistic goals. The program and use of machines are explained. Membership consists of an initial fee of $149, which Ms. .James-Gross is discounting at 66 percent for the first 100 customers. The monthly fee, based on an annual membership, is $39. Women may come as often as they wish - three lo four times a week is suggested. If women want lo come • daily, it is recommended that they alternate a "hard" machine workout with a "light" machine workout in order lo allow muscles to "rest, repair and rebuild." "Women tend lo put themselves last," Ms. James-Gross noted. "They drive their children to all sorts of activities, and 'then don'l leave time for themselves. This program allows women to find time for themselves, their health and fitness. Most women can find 30 minutes. Curves allows everyone to proceed at Iheir own pace." In the "circuit training." women move from machine to machine and alternate upper body strength training exercise with aerobic recovery stations and then lower body exercises. There is always a Irainer on Ihe floor who monilors Ihe use of machines, and hearl rates are checked every eight minutes. The other benefit of Curves is lhat women can come and go on their own schedules. Whenever a woman arrives, she can begin her circuit. Although the circuit is the same for everyone, the pace on the machines and the activilies at. the cardio stations can be adjusted. For that reason Curves is ideal for ladies, no mailer Iheir age, physical slamina or prior conditioning. Nutritional programs will be added to the program later in ihe year, but the Curves philosophy is thai slrenglh Iraining has been proven as the solulion lo permanenl fal reduction. Ms. James-Gross notes thai the atmosphere at Curves is caring and helpful. While women will gel a workout, it is one thai reflects their own capabilities and goals. Each work-out

is estimated to burn up lo 600 calories. Curves is located at 826 Merrick Road and has plenly oflighled parking behind ihe shop. There is an entrance inlo Ihe parking lot via Foxhurst Road. Those interested in joining may call 623-8395 for an initial appoinlment. Ms. James-Gross - first became involved with Curves through her sister Mary, who owns four franchises. "I have had the franchise for a year," said Ms. James-Gross "and I looked for the. best location." She praised the Freeporl-Baldwin area. "There's everything here - parks, marinas, a great population, great people, and wonderful ladies." With its location at the center of lown. Curves I as Ihe perlccl location

for women lo.convenienlly fit in their 30-minute workouts and then proceed with the many demands of their day. The hours of operation are Monday to Friday, from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Saturdays from 8

a.m. to I p.m. "We're not jusl selling a membership here." said Ms. James-Gross, "We're selling a service. I've been there. I know. Life is about change and Curves is about improving your life."

Baldwin dedicates 9/11 memorial V 00

by Joan Delaney

Hundreds of Baldwiniles brought love and support to the widows and families of those who died on September 11, 2001 at O O dedication ceremonies of the community's permanent memorial. The names of the ten Baldwinites who died that day are now engraved on a bronze marker embedded in a large jagged rock at (he Grand Avenue and Sunrise Highway . o> C/3 intersection, a place that has become Baldwin's emotional center for community ceremonies. A quotation from Helen Keller heads the plaque. "What we have enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose, for all that Qi ive love deeply becomes pan of us.'' The UJ Q names of the ten Baldwinites then follow: < Alvin Bergsohn, Richard Bruehert, UJ J James Carson, Joseph J. Coppo, Jr. 6.

Thomas A Hobbs, Terence J. Manning, Brian McAleese, FDNY, Joel Miller, Edward W: Schunk and David Weiss. Below the names is written, "We honor the memory of all who were lost, including those who have been a part of the Baldwin community. September 11, 2001. The ceremony began at dusk under clear, cool skies. Dee Cruz, President of the Baldwin Community Association (BCA) addressed the community. He described all those who died as heroes, "All victims of a war they didn't know they were in." Although this ceremony marks the .final formal ceremony which the BCA and Chamber of Commerce will conduct in honor of those who died on Seplmeber 1 1 , Mr. Cruz suggested that everyone "take a moment each year, say a-prayer, bring a flower here." *



Hurricane safety tips from page 4 • Avoid loose or dangling power lines, reporting them immediately to the power company, police or' fire department. • Enter your home with caution. • Beware of insects or animals driven to higher ground by floodwater. • Open windows and doors to ventilate and dry your home. • Check refrigerated food for spoilage and dispose appropriately. • • Take pictures of the damage to the house and' its contents for insurance claims.

• Look for electrical system damage. • Check for gas leaks, sewage and water lines damages.

Margie Miller spoke on behalf of the families. She said their loved ones were "drafted to a war they didn't expect." She described the victims as Baldwinites who had "gone to school here or chosen to raise their families here." She suggested to the audience, "Honor their memories more by living the dream they are not here to live. Teach your children to stand up for America." Firefighter John McAleese, the brother of fireman Brian McAleese, also addressed the crowd, offering particular thanks to the Baldwin Fire Department who were present in large force wearing parade dress. Deborah Maniaci, a board member of both the BCA and Chamber, and the coordinator of the event, noted that she had taken the 9:11 train into the city. "The conductor told us what was happening. We saw the towers fall." She added, "We are all basically the same," noting that "we work, have homes, and dream." She said the memorial was dedicated "to all those

whose lives were cut short.'' Family members embraced each other while members of the community stood somewhat apart in what could only be described as reverent respect. Each family .was given a yellow rose, which was then placed in front of the memorial. At the conclusion of the ceremony, community members placed lighted candles at the site. Members of the Nassau Mid Island Chorus sang a variety of patriotic songs and hymns. Together everyone said the Pledge of Allegiance. The family members, many of whom attended Ground Zero ceremonies, looked exhausted and in some cases still in the shock-of disbelief as prayers and songs activated memories and heartache. At the conclusion of the ceremony, community members greeted each other and chatted. Stories of "where I was." and "how I heard about it" were told from one to another, making the tragic day of two years ago as immediate as if it were yesterday.

Surface soils with less than 1.0 ppm of PCBs remain on-site. PCB concentration of 1.0 to 10 ppm may remain on-site provided they are covered with more than two feet of clean fill outside of Ihe construction area."

Latin music conference


On. Sunday, Scplcmbe/:,2.L,at 2;30 pm,uthe'flib"ra~ry ,will'rprese;nl-q -free concert by Sonidos Clasico Orchestra wi'tli vocalist Eddie Rivera. Founded in 1998, this group, directed by Carlos Castillo, preserves the Golden Age of Latin music as performed by the big bands in New York circa the 1950s through today's salsa music. The influence of artists such as Machilo's Afro Cubans, Tito Rodrigues and musical legend Tito Puente, among others, is apparent in the big, passionate sound of Sonidos Clasico. Born in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico, and raised in Brooklyn, director and arranger Carlos Castillo's earliest memories included listening to Bing Crosby, the Andrews Sisters and Spanish radio, which often featured guitar music. He began studyfng the guitar at age 11 and his musical style of bass line accompaniment influenced his further study of the string bass. This led to his working with leading combos in Latin music. Mr. Castillo is presently a member of the music faculty at Nassau Community College. Members of Sonidos Clasico include leading professionals from the music community.
