Freeport's Freedom Riders rolled into Washington, D.C.,recently after bicycling from Ground Zero in a imoving memorial! to those killed in the attacks on America on 9/11/01. The event, which was called Face of America, began Friday, September 12, following a ceremony held in Battery Park, not far from where the World Trade Center once stood. The 280-mile route took the cyclists along the New Jersey shore, through Delaware and Maryland, and ended at the nation's capital. More than 700 of the participants camped out in tent cities along the way. Teams from United States and a host of foreign countries around the world participated in the ride, including a group of Israeli and Palestinian athletes. Among Freeport's 11-member team were Village Trustee Don Miller and residents Drs. Manuel and Walter Mendoza, Freeport firefighter Dr. Fred Jones aftl the director of the Freeport Fire Department's Fitness Program, Ed Zacher. Others represented the East Meadow, Farmingdale, Merrick and Brightwaters communities. "It was an awe-inspiring and touching tribute to those who lost their lives in the attacks on America", said Trustee Miller. "To ride alongside cyclists of all levels, including those with disabilities was truly remarkable." Face of America is an annual cycling journey planned and organized by World T.E.A.M. Sports, a non-profit organization committed to bringing diverse groups of people together through sports events and happenings. "It 'is an event to show that we care about each other and that we believe that diverse and unified teams, working together, can accomplish awesome goals. I am proud to have represented our community in such a wonderful and uplifting experience arid look forward to joining with more of my fellow Freeporters on next year's ride", concluded Trustee Miller.

America the Beautiful looks for cleainup volunteers CM

By Douglas Finlay


The list reads like a "Who's Who" of top state, county, and local agencies and civic groups mingled tightly among a collection of state, county and town policymakers: the state Department of Parks; the state Department of Transportation; Nassau County Department of Parks; South Shore 2 Estuary Reserve Council; Freeport Rotary; GLOW Civic Association, North Merrick Civic Association; Operation SPLASH; 03 Senator Charles Fuschillo; Assemblywoman Maureen O'Donnell; H Legislator Dave Denenberg; Councilwoman Angie Cullin; The Leader. This impressive assemblage and their representatives will gather on Saturday, October 25, at the northwest corner parking lot of the Merrick Long Island Rail Road station for a most worthy cause: a day-long campaign to target five specific sites along the Meadowbrook Parkway and Freeport Harbor to clean up the garbage t and debris strewn aldng< its pathways and • waterways. " , ' ;" Sponsored by America The Beautiful of Nassau County, a South Shore grassroots environmental organization of strongminded civic residents whose goal is to return to and preserve the natural beauty of hidden pathways and waterways being covered over with garbage and contaminants, the group is urging those in the communities who wish to volunteer their services to join in collecting debris and cleaning the pathways and waterways, as they yWork alongside the best and brightest luminaries in the state, the county and the local municipalities. . High school students -in public 'affairs, classes; college students taking . environ^ mental studies courses; and mothers and' Jads looking for an educational outing




with their children are all welcome to join. -Those under 18 will need a volunteer agreement signed by a parent to participate, available at any participating Bellmore, Merrick or Freeport school. Bob Young, chairman of America The Beautiful's steering committee, said the • organization was begun last year after he unexpectedly stymblea1 upon overwhelming debris "strewn throughout the pathways and ponds lining the Meadowbrook Parkway. "At the East Meadowbrook Pond in Merrick it looked like a real garbage dump," as though it had never been cleaned, Mr. Young said. "Thousands of floatable items were littered along the lake shore, along with broken, glass,-thousands of beer cans and styrofoam cups, and old auto parts and batteries," he said. . He reached out to both Senator Charles • Fuschillo and Legislator Dave Denenberg, looking for quick action to the debris prob-> lem.'He got Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and? .others totaling up to 70 people to partici-; .pate in collecting'some ,three Nassau; .•County dumptruoks full of garbage. "The' mounds of garbage we • collected . werej taller than most people," Mr. Young con-'. tinued. • Walks with James Caracciolo, president of GLOW Civic Assocition and former county deputy commissioner of parks,, after the cleanup "further unveiled 900 cubic yards of contaminated road silt dumped on a Phase 2-protecled streambed," he.said. Water flowing over the contaminated silt then carried to the bays. The silt was then removed, requiring earth movers to do so. Five areas of focus for the cleanup include:,;Freeport Harbor, sponsored by.

Freeport school board discusses assessment, gangs by Jim Golding Complaints over lax increases resulting from Ihe recent courilywitle reassessment and a gang-related altercation near the high school dominated discussion at Freeport school hoard's October 8 meeting. Superintendent Dr. Eric Eversley told the board of a torrent of complaining phone calls the district has received from residents gelling Iheir latest lax statements. Assistant Superintendent for Business Kishore Kuncham told the board his office "has been Hooded with phone calls about the tremendous increase in taxes." School taxes have risen an average of 16 percent, Mr. Kuncham staled. In some cases, they have risen more llian 30 or 40, percent. Bui he said school spending is nol Ihe sole reason for thv hike. He noted the lax statements don'l explain the reason for the higher taxes and cited three factors: the loss of slate aid, a shift in base proportions - the recvalualion of the four classes of taxable real estate, wilh Class I, homeowners, being hil Ihe hardest - and a school budget increase of about 6.3 percent. Trustee Ron Ellerbe questioned whether ihe new assessment process was causing the large increase and Mr. Kuncham responded the process "will not cause taxes to go up," ralher il was due lo homeowners paying "low taxes at the expense of commercial property owners" for many years. Residenlial properties were last assessed in 1938, commercial properties in 1986. ' • Mr. Kuncham said anyone wilh complainls about a higher tax bill should call the counly Assessor's office. ' Trustee Michael Raab remarked, "We increased expenditures by 6 percent" but residents "should thank Albany for .any further increase. The community is looking at us as if we increased taxes by dou-

ble digils." He added, "It's about time we sent a message to our elected officials." Mr. Ellerbe pointed out'the 6 percent increase (in the school budget) was'larger than in past years, but Mr. Raab said it was financially irresponsible in past years lo have little or no increase because fulure planning needs were neglecled. "We have to pay the piper now," he said, and again laid the blame for most of the increase on eleclcd stale officials. "Nobody puls (he blame where il belongs, up in Albany." This prompted a reply from Trustee Sunday Coward, who said taxpayers "want an answer. We can'l distance ourselves from the fact that taxes have increased." , Mr., Raab 1 then recommended the school district send put a letter explaining the lax increase. ' .But Board Presidenl.Dr. Joseph Caltanq responded^ v"We Have been' lalking about this for a year. I .think we have .alerted the community endlessly about ihe problem." "This is .something you communicate lo the community as an ongoing process," said Mr. Ellerbe. Trustee Carmen Pineyro recommended sending "a letter out in simple English" lhal would include a list of officials to contact. Mr. Raab also suggested holding a public forum to address the increase. "We knew il [the tax increase] was going to come, now it's here."

A bizarre trustee moment As Dr. Cattano was replying, Mr. Raab suddenly made an outburst, apparently reacting to a comment made lo him privalely, by. Ms, Coward,'who his righl al board meeting. He shouted.that lie wanted his seat moved, then asked for a break and stormed out of the room ihrough a nearby door. Following an awkward silence of al least half a minute, Mr. Raab quietly (continued on page 14)

Taking back our good name The mass media come tramping into a community like ours whenever there is a major crime. Someday it will be yesterday's news. But today it hurts even more because of the way our community is portrayed. Saturday morning, October 25, rain or shine; is a chance to show the world what we are really made of. America the Beautiful is sponsoring cleanups, in .five areas along the JVleadowbrook Parkway. Volunteers will assemble at the Merrick railroad station to be taken to the East .Meadowbrook Pond in Merrick, the West Meadowbrook Pond-in Freeport, the Meadowbrook Preserve in Roosevelt or the North Merrick Pond. Those working in Freeport Harbor with SPLASH will meet at the Albany Avenue boat ramp in Freeport. Volunteers under the age of 18 will need a form signed by a parent or guardian. In fact, it would be a great idea if the parents came along too. Various locations will be recommended according to the age and physical abilities of the volunteers. The South Shore Estuary Reserve and Operation SPLASH will have informational displays at the sign-in areas. Local groups are busy getting the word out and talking up this cause. ' './ Do you think the major media will cover this event? Will the reporter who called a high school girl a "dirtbag" for refusing to comment on a recent scandal be there? We hope they do take up this challenge, and that we can prove to the world that we are a decent, caring community.

Making Freeport look good Freeport's Village Trustee Don Miller, firefighters Dr. Fred Jones and Ed Zacher and. residents Drs. Manuel and Walter Mendoza help personnify what is so great about this village. They represented us in the Freedom Ride from Ground Zero to Washington, D.C., as a tribute to those who lost their lives in the September 11 attack on the United States. And while they felt honored to be among such company from other teams across the United States and from other countries around the world, we can truly say that surely others were inspired in turn by them.

Baldwin faces another bond issue by Joan Delaney At the October 8 Baldwin Board of Education meeting, board members and residents heard a presentation by Saverio Belfiore, the project coordinator of H2M company, regarding the facilities needs of the school district. The comprehensive report is an outgrowth of a state mandate requiring districts to compile a five year plan for projected facilities needs as well as a decision last year by the state to change the way in which it reimburses districts for construction and capital improvement costs. Because of this change in the funding process, the district will have to change the way it pays for construction and capital improvements. It is expected that the district will present a bond issue, most probably in February, 2004, for a total cost of approximately $28.9 million. School board President James Scannell noted that the board would conduct numerous special meetings and devote portions of regular meetings for discussion in order to inform residents about the proposal. Residents would have ample opportunity to offer their suggestions either to eliminate items or add items. The details of how bond issues are conducted and the actual projected financial impact on residents would be explained as well. To give some perspective, based on projected costs in 1999, the financing of the $8.7 million bond issue for the middle school expansion, added to the remaining financing of previous bond issues, was projected to cost residents approximately $50 a year in debt service. Since then, the cost of the library expansion has been added, the 1984 bond has been paid off and the 1992 bond will be paid off this year. In the 2003-4 budget, the line for debt service was $2,519,540 for the school district plus another $210,000 for the library. In the past, the Baldwin School District followed a plan of facilities upgrades which were funded in the regular annual operating budget. The slate then reim: bursed the district 54 percent of most construction costs in the year following the expenditure. Only unusual large-scale projects were bonded. Starting with this year's 2003-04 budg-

et, however, the state will only reimburse districts for construction on a 15 year amortized schedule. Districts would only receive 1/15 of the 54 percent of reimbursement each year. Since districts must pay their bills as construction proceeds, it would make it fiscally impossible to pay for these capital improvements if districts are only reimbursed over a 15 year period. During the last school year, Deputy Superintendent Lee Chapman warned that districts would have to package facilities needs and bond their costs. Last March, the district created a facilities committee composed of nine community members and 12 members of the school district as well as representatives of the H2M company, which had consulted with the district on the five year plan. Expanding on the initial presentation which representatives of the company had made last year, Mr. Belfiore indicated that three categories of facilities needs were explored - site work, building envelope (outside) and interior work. Each of the seven elementary schools, the middle school, high school and district office were considered, along with districtwide facilities needs. There were common areas of needs in several categories. All schools needed public address and intercom upgrades, electrical and technology upgrading as well as landscaping and irrigation improvements. No upgrades are needed in the new wing of the middle school. Many schools needed roof repairs, boiler replacements, ventilation upgrades, and window replacements. There would be significant work needed on the fields of the high school, track and tennis courts as well as improvements to the health suite, kitchen and cafeteria, the auditorium sound and lighting and balcony seats. At the middle school, the tennis courts, track and fields would be improved and there would be upgrades to seven science labs. At the elementary schools, some roots would be repaired, tennis courts would be removed at Milburn School, toilet facilities in some schools would be improved and the' perimeter retaining wall at Shubert would be repaired. At many schools, ceilings, flooring, corridors, exits

and entrances would be repaired. Throughout the district asbestos abatement and removal of any lead paint would take place. Mr. Belfiore noted that since the incident at Columbine High School in Colorado, security needs have become more vital requiring better communication as well as security cameras. Educational needs also require significant technology upgrades. In the 2003-4 school budget, the budget code for debt service was projected to cost $2,519,540 to cover the costs for the district's previous bond issues such as the middle school expansion in 1999 and the 1996 bond issue, which included facilities work to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act as well as various facility and technology upgrades.

p>olioo now/s The First Squad detectives are investigating a robbery that occuzed on October 6 at 8:30 p.m. in Baldwin. According to detectives, a 19-year-old Working the register at Radio Shack on Grand Avenue, Baldwin, was confronted inside that location by two unknown male robbers wearing ski masks and armed with black, semi-automatic handguns. The robbers forced the victim to the rear of the store, where they tied up another employee, then directed the first victim to open the register. The robbers removed an undisclosed amount of cash from the register, then filled four black bags with assorted merchandise, including cell phone, cameras, printers and camcorders, before exiting the store and fleeing in an unknown direction.

Baldwin school board discusses facilities

by Joan Delaney

In addition to a presentation on facilities and a possible bond issue (see article on page 5, the Baldwin Board of Education approved numerous business items and discussed fiscal and educational mailers at its regular meeting on October 8. Superintendent Kathy Weiss noted that the Board of Regents had met that day and approved changes to certain aspects of Regents testing and grading. Responding to recommendations of the Commissioner of Education, the Regents approved allowing districts to keep the grade of 55 percent which has been functioning as a safety net for students taking Regents exams during this period of transition to higher standards. It was indicated that a passing grade of 65 percent on Regents exams as a requirement for graduation for all students was " an unachieveable goal in such a short period of time." The Math A exam will be given after one year instead of I 1/2 years and the scoring of the exam will change. The department of education will compile raw scores of the exams from throughout the state before setting a grade for a passing score. A four-person work group of the Board of Regents also indicated that the Regents exam in physics should reflect a level of expectation comparable to other exams, not comparable to an advanced course. Recently, the Baldwin School District announced that because of the nature and scoring of that test during the last two years, it will no longer require that exam for course credit or graduation. The Board of Regents also announced that special education students may still take a Regents Competency Exam for graduation. There were concerns by school districts that the requirement of Regents exams would make it impossible for special education students to ever graduate. In other business, board member Mary Clark announced that board member B.A. Schoen has been re-elected as President of Reform Educational Financial Inequities Today (REFIT), a consortium of school districts seeking equity in the financing of education. Board members discussed recent court decisions in a case brought by representatives of the Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) concerning the responsibility of the state to adequately finance an appropriate education. Mr. Schoen noted that an "appropriate education" has been defined as a "high school education as defined by the

Regents.'' Board member Mary Jo O'Hagan gave a timeline of dates which will impact on the governor, the legislature and the courts relative to state aid and financing education. She predicted that unlike much of what happens in education, "We expect things to start moving quickly." The CFE and school districts have indicated, however, that they do not want financing to be conducted in a way that "robs Peter to pay Paul" in giving tb poorer districts at the expense of other districts. ! Board President James Scannell pointed Qut an inaccuracy in recently mailed lax bills which indicated that "school districts set the tax rate." He explained thai districts set a tax levy, the amount of money needed to be raised in taxes after school aid and other revenues are known. The assessor's office, he said, sets the rate. There will be a special board of education public work session on November 5, in District Offices at which the board will discuss "educational practices, programs, afhd student performance." Unlike regular monthly meetings, no votes or action will be taken and there will be no period for audience questions. The district's commu-

nity input meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 29, at the middle school at 8 p.m. and the next regular monthly meeting will he on November 12, at 8 p.m. at Sleele School. There will also be a special program on

Monday evening, November 3. at 7:30 p.m. at the high school. Dr. Robert Brooks will, deliver a -presentation on "Raising Resilient Children." All are invited. The next day, he will speak to teachers during stall development programs.

lottors L For Scanned To The Leader: On November 4, Baldwin residents will have an opportunity to choose their county Legislator. I will be voting for the future of Baldwin by casting my ballot for Legislator Joseph Scannell. I am impressed with his dedication to the community. The clean roads project together with the two beautification projects (and a third on the way) have certainly improved the condition of Grand Avenue,-Legislator Scannell has also secured funds so that our local ponds will receive long-needed renovations. He also takes an interest in our individual residents. I have seen notices for mammography vans, prostate screening, tlu shots, child safety seat seminars and many town hall meetings. A vote for Legislator Joe Scannell is a vote for Baldwin! Murry and Florence Duitz

A gang-related tussle • Mr. Raab then, described "a horrible experience" he witnessed .in., front of the high school following the September 25 Freeport-Baldwin football game. "Several hundred students broke into gang fighting," he' said, complaining the incident was "played down" by law enforcement and other government officials. He estimated that more than 500 youths might have been involved. The incident did not occur on school district property, but on a street not lar from the high school. He called it "a major potential disaster" the community was "ill equipped to han-


.Mr. Raab did compliment the high school's security staff, "considering-what they were up against." He added, "We have to let the community know there is a major gang problem." Dr. Cattano said that it was "a problem first and foremost of the people sitting out there [in the audience]. It's a Freeport problem." Mr. Ellerbe noted the efforts of the working group and joint committees with the Village of Freeport that began to address the gang issue in January 2()(X). "It isn't as though the board has been passive on this issue." he said. "We've been very proactive." He continued, "it's a community issue. It happened away from school properly." Mr. Ellerbe added there was "no informalion.lhal this"

Mr. Raah. replied. "You would'have been overwhelmed by what happened." Dr. Eversley said he is attempting lo'get more details on what happened. "It could have potentially turned into something more, but it did not." lie said, emphasi/ing that "the assault did not occur on school properly. It happened several blocks away and well after the game." Dr. Cattano noted that students at (he game behaved "very much in a normal "range." adding. "We have not taken that |incident| lightly. No one around this table has said there is no serious gang issue."

Other business Dr. Eversley reported that Freeport and a consortium of other school districts would share in an $11.5 million National Science Foundation grant given to improve student achievements in math. The superintendent also had great praise for the high school football team, noting that, up through last week, they had oulscored their opponents 140-0 and that even the reserve learn was able to stop their opponents' slarlers. He also praised the teamwork of the boys varsity soccer team in its recent victories. Robert Harris, executive director for curriculum, school improvement, professional development and planning, discussed the district's restructuring in assessment of students- in non-mandated assessment years (grades I. 2. 3. 5. 6. 7) He said a district assessment committee is evaluating two tests for these grades that would "meet or exceed slate standards." The board adjourned to executive session. Its next meeting will be October 29 at, 7:30 p.m." at Dodd Middle School.
