Âť.^r .THE FREEPORT FIRE DEPARTMENT will hold its annual Fire Prevention Expo on Sunday, October 5, at the Rec Center. There will be displays, demonstrations and other activities, as well as extinguisher and smoke detector raffles, not to mention plenty of gifts for the kids!

The Leader has learned that there was a disturbance after the conclusion of the football game between Freeport High School and Baldwin High School on Thursday, September 25, a game won by Freeport 36-0. Police sources told The Leader that the disturbance involved a number of groups of 4-10 young people, and that students from both schools were involved. It is reported that the youths were obstructing traffic, taunting each other and that fights were breaking out between the groups. The efforts of as many as 16 members of the Freeport Police Department were necessary to restore order. The most serious incident of the afternoon involved the assault of a female Baldwin student by a group of female Freeport students. The victim received injuries to her face, but refused medical attention. Police also report that an arrest was made in connection with the assault. Freeport Police Chief Michael Woodward told the Leader that he was not aware of any information that the disturbances were gangrelated. He noted that the two school have a longstanding sports rivalry, and that school colors (red and white for Freeport) could be misconstrued as being gang colors. Christina Schmohl, spokesperson for the Baldwin Schools, gave the following statement: "The school districts have been in communication and it was determaned that the incident (the assault) was non-school related.". No comment was' received* from' the. Freeport sch6ols*v. " " \y.,,\\vXv\ X'.%->"->"- "HvXvÂť,

The FFD "Wide Awake" old fashioned tournament at the Freeport Training Center on September 7 turned out to be a success. Nineteen departments came out to show their support. There were a lot of things to be said about Richard T. Muldowney, Jr., who was a member of Engine Company. He thought Engine Company of Freeport, a bit of everything he knew. He was also like a brother to them. This tournament was all in tribute to him and his hard work. Engine Company raised money by selling T-Shirts, bracelets and 50-50 raffle tickets. Food and drinks were donated from Freeport businesses. The Freeport community also showed its support by donating, and being present at the tournament. The monies that were raised will go toward building a bronze statue dedicated to him, in Freeport. Look forward to more activities dedicated to Richard T. Muldowney, Jr. We all know he was a great man who put his heart and soul into everything he did.


Freeport School Board discusses academic intervention the committee-? I thinVit wo.uld be in the best interests of the schoo^ district," he said. "We should be aggressive in including parents," Mr. Ellerbe said. "It is in the interest of the administration and the board to have parents involved in meaningful ways." Dr. Catlano said the committee "did not include parents" and Dr. Eversley added they "are involved in other ways." Robert Harris, executive director for curriculum, school improvement, professional development and planning, said parental participation was requested but "no one showed up", at the committee meetings. • Board member Sunday Coward praised Mr. Harris for his compilation of the report, and added, "parent involvement also means the board reaching out. Parents are by law required to be stakeholders."

School administrators and trustees last Wednesday diseussed and approved the , Freeport School District's Academic Intervention Services plan and heard a presentation from the superintendent on goals for the coming year. But the notorious incident involving allegations of sexual abuse among certain Mepham High School football team members- elicited comments from school officials. "We are all shocked and saddened over (he disclosures at Mepham High School," said Superintendent Dr. Erie Eversley. "We've paid close attention to the event." He said school officials have reviewed procedures to prevent such incidents from occurring in Free-port schools. Dr. Eversley said such behavior is "contrary to our code of conduct," Dr. Eversley said, and "I have been speaking with coaches and working -with counScope of work selors to develop student leadership.

gories. During the public comments segment, Alan Jay, as he has at previous meetings, asked that the district's mission statement include a phrase about teaching American ideals. In keeping with his consistent anti-union comments, Mr. Jay suggested the Freeport district be redesignated "Union Controlled" instead of the current "Union Free" title in its name. This prompted a question from trustee Michael Raab about the origins of the phrase in the name of the district. Dr. Mary Bediako, assistant superintendent for instruction, replied that the designation was applied to show Freeport was a separate, independent entity from nearby Roosevelt and Unibndale, which are central school districts. Also speaking was parent Diane Clark who questioned recent cuts and personnel changes in the district's Individual Education Plan, to which Dr. Eversley said he would meet with her individually to discuss the issue. -----The. Seplember_ 24 meeting, held at

Columbus Avenue School, was in part intended to highlight goals for the upcoming' year at the Pre-K and Kindergarten facility. Principal Peggy Miller outlined the activities under the school curriculum, which emphasize the basics in math and reading. "The little ones learn through hands-on activities," said Ms. Miller said of the 4and 5-year-olds .that comprise the student body. "They're going through the same process that older students do." she continued, noting that using computers in the classroom is part of their training. The students also learn writing skills, decision-making, and study various authors and artists. Ms. Miller said the emphasis at Columbus Avenue School is "to make them feel that learning is fun." Trustees adjourned to executive session to discuss personnel and legal issues. Their next meeting will take place October 8 at Atkinson School.

site an Freeport success By Laura Schofer Carlos and Eric are brothers-in-law living in Roosevelt. Each morning they rise at 5:30 a.m., get on their bicycles and ride to Freeport to look for work. They arrive at the Day Laborer Site around 6:30 a.m. when it opens and wait until someone offers them work. Some days they work, other days "I wait until the center closes," Carlos said through a translator. "Last week I worked two days. But there's been a lot of rain this week. Still I come every day," he said. The brothers-in-law are from El Salvador and have been in this country for the past 2 1/2 years. They have been coming to the center for the past six months. "It's a good place," said Eric. "I have no permanent job right now, so I come here." "I'll take whatever work is offered. I can do many things," added Carlos. Carmen Maquilon, Director of Immigrant Services for Catholic Charities, told The Leader, that "it has been a very gradual process. At first we started with about 10 people coming to the site. People had to build trust with us. But now it has become a magnet." The work site center opened in September of 2002 under a flurry of controversy. Some Freeport residents resisted the idea of a work site. The work site was opened under the auspices of Catholic Charities, the Village of Freeport and the Workplace Project in Hempstead. The village has donated a trailer as well as the use of the municipal parking lot on Bennington Avenue, just behind Sunrise Highway and across from Home Depot. At Village Board meetings last fall people complained about the village's support of such a program. One protester called the site . "Crookport: Illegal Hiring Site." "At one time we have some phone calls. But not anymore," added Scott Stepp, a spokesperson for .Catholic Charities. "The village has been very supportive of this program and it's working."

H c

Oscar Cortes, Coordinator of the hiring site, estimates that on any given morning the site attracts "about 50 people in the summer months," he said. The winter months do not attract as many workers or contractors, although Mr. Cortes says some contractors do come around looking for people to help shovel snow. During the fall and winter months the center offers English language classes. "Most of the men know basic English, enough to get by," said Ms. Maquilon. The center also provides information about how to file income taxes and immigration issues. Do the workers have green cards? "Catholic Charities is not an employment agency," .said Ms. Maquilon. She added that the center does provide information sessions on immigration. "Even if you have a green card you may not have skills for other types of work. Also, most people don't realize that even when you have a green card the first five to 10 years you are not entitled to assistance." Does the INS ever come by? "No, they leave us alone," she replied. On the sunny September morning The Leader visited the work site, several dozen men were waiting for work. Inside the trailer several men were seated at one of the five computers surfing the Internet. "Many of the men like to read newspapers from back home," said Ms. Maquilon. "Most of the workers come from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala," said Ms. Maquilon. The trailer also provides .bathroom facilities and the sitting room has a television set that was purchased by }the men. A sign below the TV-reads "Channel 25 Ingles Clases [English classes]". Another poster reads "Visitan Negocios," which means that some of the local businessmen will come and speak to the workers sometime this Fall. The center is open Monday through Saturday, from 6:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Mr. Cortes said that the men "draw numbers, like a lottery, when they arrive

Let the sunshine in, and make the darkness disappear Last Friday Nassau County Court Judge Donald Belfi was reported to have asked the public to contact Long Island police about any alleged violent or abusive hazing incidents, not just the one which was the subject of the hearing over which he presided and which has blackened the name of the Mepham High School Pirates football team. To be honest, while the Bellmore-Merrick community has suffered from the reports of horrific acts against new team members, hazing has turned violent in many other places: Incidents like this will continue to happen unless they are reported. So it is important for people to heed the judge?s call for help, for the Mepham sodomy and rape victims and also for other victims. We also call dn our readers to reach out to the victims and let them know they are not to blame. If they did not come forward, something even worse, if that can even be imagined, might happen to someone else later on. Witnesses who do not come forward, on the other hand, must share the blame. Parents need to talk to their children about the severity of these crimes, and how they should act in the future. Schools hosting other Mepham teams (football has been cancelled for the season) should treat them with compassion, not contempt. They should not have to run a gauntlet of jeers and insults on their way to the playing field. Mepham is a great school and does not deserve to have its name dragged in the mud. If other schools receive Mepham teams in such a way, what are they saying about themselves? Some soul searching is also in order. We need to look into ourselves and our human nature and ask why should we ever need initiation rites that are demeaning? How do they promote bonding and what could be a better way? How can we prevent situations like what happened at the Mepham football camp, and in the novel "Lord of the Flies" by William Golding, in which unsupervised children degenerated into young savages? One obvious answer is to look to our religious leaders for guidance. The senior members of our community may have GREEN RIBBONS on some insight from the past. And chil- Newbridge Road dren also can often make a point, show support for Don't they say, "out of the mouths of victims, babes"? This newspaper has faith in the intelligence and heart of our readers. We urge them to write about their experiences and any solutions that worked for them in similar situations. On occasion we can withhold the name of a letter writer from publication, although we do need to be able to contact the person for verification and to ask questions.

ence at the evening meeting at the high school when he noted that Grand Avenue did not reflect the affluence of the community. "You have houses ranging from $350,000 to $600,000." He then mentioned several possible ways in which the county might be able to access some funding to help. The mystery to me, however, is why more is not being done already by code enforcement officials. For the most part, code enforcement is a town, not a county, responsibility. And at every meeting with town officials, people practically beg for better code enforcement. So, too, do the responsible business owners. It's not a case of the residents against the merchants. Unlike the county, the town takes pride in its great fiscal health. For the town, the hiring of some more employees to enforce codes shouldn't be a problem of money. After all, in the big picture of townwide budgets, how much money does it take to hire a few more code enforcers whose job it is to be out in the streets? In addition, the cost of their jobs is one which has an offset in revenues that are produced from fines.

RIGHT ON TARGET.-.Within five minutes of being in Baldwin for his tour of the community and meeting with residents, County Executive Thomas Suozzi noticed and commented on the area's number one problem - code enforcement. The county executive stepped from his car, greeted people, shook hands, and asked, "Exactly where am I in the town?" Leaders of various community groups had been asked to gather in the parking area behind the stores on Grand Avenue just south of fire headquarters where a small bus was waiting to take everyone on the tour of town. It is probably the shabbiest and most complained about section of Baldwin. Chamber of Commerce President Doris Duffy began to explain the geography of the community and the Chamber's efforts in revitalization. Immediately, the county executive took in the scene before his eyes and commented, "One of your problems is code enforcement. I can see violations all around." He then began to tick off the violations, one after another. He received applause from the audi-

Is it that the town is reluctant to have its employees "waste" time in court to prove their case, a response which, at least initially, will probably be necessary if landlords and property owners fight their summonses? Like most rules, people tend to obey those laws that they know are being enforced and ignore those regulations which are not. Once the word is out that the town is serious, compliance should be less of a problem. Code enforcement does not require that the town start from square one. The laws are already on the books -' laws involving signs, facades, safety, occupancy, and sidewalk conditions. Additionally, the town needs to be proactive rather than reactive in its approach to code enforcement. Presently, it appears that officials wait for complaints. As it now exists, the complaint process requires that people write a letter to the building department and sign their names. That process needs change. Also, too. frequently, people fear that if they complain, they will bring code enforcers down throughout their neighborhood, not exactly a way to win

friends. Any statement by town regula- H tors implying that they cannot he selec- c tive in enforcement is rather disingenu- a. ous since all code enforcement, by its very nature, is selective (think of speed- O o ing and other traffic violations). We know that not everyone who commits violations is caught, but the town can't decide that its answer to that problem is that it will not bother to catch anyone. People are never going to complain about an egregious violation of code if m they think that the town will react in ways that seem retaliatory rather than o helpful, searching out minute violations when they finally do decide to respond. The old^queslion, "Which comes first the chicken or the egg?" can be tweaked to ask, "Which comes first, new upscale retail or a town that has been visually improved with code enforcement and streetscape projects?" One suspects that in this economy, Baldwin will have to doll itself up first to attract suitors .before anyone will come courting.

Some residents question project by Joan Delaney Despite monsoon-like wind and rain on September 23, seven Baldwin residents attended the Town of Hempstead board hearing on a proposal to change the zoning of a parcel of property at Atlantic and Milburn Avenues from Business and a small portion of Residence B to Residence CA to accommodate the building of an eight unit apartment complex. Two residents, Elena Hernandez of Dahlia Street and Jean Smyth of Parsonage Street described the proposal as "better than a McDonald's or 7-11." However, B.A. Schoen, Rolf Mahler and Kevin Kamen described the change to residential as a negative, indicating that Baldwin has little enough business property already. "There is something called critical mass," noted Mr. Schoen, pointing out that the presence of new business is an asset to

other businesses. Mr. Mahler said that the change of zoning would hurt other businesses which must then pay more business taxes. (There are four taxing categories and each category is responsible for a percentage of the total property tax obligation). However real estate appraiser Barry Nelson noted that Residence CA zoning is taxed at a commercial rate, not a residential rate. He estimated that the taxes on av/parcel with eight units would range from $38,000 to $48,000. At a recent community meeting, the owner, Roy Tuccillo, indicated that taxes on the property are $35,000 Attorney Bill Benneso described the project as he had at a community meeting on September 16. The lot area is 19,490 square feet and the building lot would be 3,680 square feet, which is an 18.8 percent coverage. There would be four three-bed-

room apartments and four two-bedroom apartments as well as 20 parking spaces, nine more than required. Different responses by the attorney, appraiser and owner concerning the rental price of the apartments caused some confusion with numbers ranging from $2,000 $2,300 for the two-bedroom, 800 square foot units to $2,500 to $2,700 for the 1,000 square foot, three-bedroom units. Town board members questioned various aspects of the plans, with Anthony

Santino noting that the attorney should consult with the Baldwin Fire Department for its opinion regarding the access of emergency vehicles. He also pointed out the need for a larger protected play area for children. In response to a comment by resident Charles Fisenne, Mr. Santino agreed that a "no left turn" would be needed at the exit of the development onto Atlantic Avenue.

letters to the editor School calendar To The Leader: .1 called Dr. Eversley's office last week regarding the Freeport Schools calendar. Labor Day is there, as are Yom Kippur, Columbus Day, Election Day, Veterans' Day, Thanksgiving, New Year's, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Presidents' Day, Lincoln's Birthday, and Memorial Day. What happened lo Christmas, etc.? Separation of church and state? How to explain Yom Kippur? Our Freeport Schools mission statement says, "We are committed to an appreciation for cultural and ethnic diversity." Let's do it. Let's list all recognized holidays. June Tinkhauser

Nautical Mile under control To The Leader: When you decide to buy a home in Freeport, you should survey the area, and know if you would be happy living adjacent to commercial property. The Nautical Mile, with its restaurants, bars, shops and now the miniature golf course, has become an attraction for families throughout Long Island. With the wonderful revitalization of Freeport, through Mayor Glacken's administration, we now are joining all other towns across Long Island who are using their natural resources to promote business and pleasure, and to keep commerce growing on Long Island. This revitalization of commercial as well as residential real estate properties has 'excelled to a heightened level of value. Instead of fighting what has made

Freeport and its Nautical Mile a success, why don't you join in on what so many other Long Islanders came to Freeport for. Let the Freeport Police Department do their job, instead of calling them every 5 minutes to measure noise level. Let Mayor Glacken and the Board of Trustees do their job instead of calling their homes at 11:30 p.m. The Nautical Mile is under control! Chuck and Jane Dugan

Good news To The Leader: Please read this entire letter to the editor, as lo why it is titled: "Good News". Let me make some comments please on a number of good things our Freeport School Board and administration are doing, and offer a few critical suggestions for improvement. I first want to commend the articles and write-up in the September 18 LEADER. The first is the excellent

detailed report by Jim Guiding tilled "Freeport School Board Discusses Academics", and the second article is tilled: "High School on Slate List". Our school board, administration, all teachers and all parents and students in our four elementary schools deserve a major "well done" for their very significant academic improvement for the school year 2002-2003. All Freeporl saw that, and so did our State Department of Education by so recognizing these four schools as among those-most improved in the.state. The winners of course are the children and families of those children. Great job .to all! Now, keep it up. please. We've all known that our Dodd Middle School and Freeport High School had to be tackled next, and now the state has told us so officially in writing. I note a 34-page action plan that has been set forth titled: "Academic Intervention Services Plan." Excellent. Let me say something about money, and

this is very critical. If we need (o hire some more teachers in selected areas to achieve (he results we'need, then tell us here in Freeport.-and I'm sure we will agree and support that. I don'i waul to hear ever again something which we sometimes hear around budget time, thai Freeport School Dislricl has Ihe lowest taxpayer cost per student of any school district in Nassau Counly. Why should we (ry (o lie (lie loucsl? Thai may have been the goal of previous boards and administrations, but llial is doing a serious disservice to these students and their families, and property values. For (lie latter, no one wants lo bring Iheir family into a (own where the school system Itas a less than acceptable academic reputation and gets warning letters from the stale. In my opinion and in Ihe opinion of others, properly values here in Freeporl will move up another 20 percent as our school system continues lo improve up (continued on page 14)

FREEPORT CHEERLEADERS had a lot to cheer about. by Linda Hendrickson Freeport's football team blanked the Hempstead Tigers 63-0 in the opening game of the 2003 season. It was a perfect day from the playing of the national anthem and kiekoff to the final gun of the game. Leslie Jackman ran in a touchdown from the four-yard line on a pass from quarterback Randy Mills with 6:25 on the clock following a 49-yard drive on nine plays. Adrian Palazzo kicked the extra point. That was the beginning of Freeport's major offensive efforts. Jet Bates scored from the two-yard line and the 32-yard line on passes from Mills. Bales also scored on a 77-yard interception in the second quarter and made two solo and two assisted tackles. Eric Reitmayer and Bobby Hogan both scored on passes from Mills while Polo Zavala and Travis Jones both scored on runs. Co-captain Stanley Gultiere?. returned a 27-yard interception. "Today's stats are almost off the charts." commented Statistician Stuart Napear. 'We had 260 yards running, 119 yards passing, six passing TDs, 1 r u n n i n g TD, and 2 TDs from interceptions. Adam Woodmansee, Omar Walden, Gullierez, Sean Scott, Bates. Patrick Lewis, Andrew Hughes and Jacob Rayes combined for 17 solo tackles and 20 .assisted tackles. Jackman, Lenox Norville, Jones and Mills accumulated 224 of the rushing yards. Palazzo kicked seven extra points. It was a banner day." Down 3-2, third doubles Maria Hildago/Marquilta McNair and second doubles Domenica Beauford/Simone Grauer secured the last two. points to give the Lady Devils a 4-3 win over Carey. Both doubles teams were forced to go three sets in the residual winds of hurricane Isabel.

Earlier in the week, the Lady Devils lost to Plainedge 7-0 and defeated New Hyde Park 4-3. Carter and Courtenay took the deciding point against New Hyde Park with their 7-5. 6-1 win.

Introducing Jack Rice Now sonic might say Jack Rice hardly needs an introduction to faithful readers ofThe Leader. In 1992 Jack was an integral part ol'The Leader's special issue honoring the Village Centennial. Since then, he has kepi his hand in with special and day-today editing alike. . But now. after retiring from the Bcllmorc-Merrick Central High School District, where he taught English at Jerusalem Avenue Junior High School, Mepham High School, Calhoun Summer School and Grand Avenue Middle School, and also advised student newspapers, he is joining L&M Publications as Administrative Assistant. He will hold a leadership position and he responsible for

fjq

n>

making important'editorial, administrative and marketing decisions. Jack says he wanted to join the L&M team because "I believe these are the finest community newspapers on Long Island, and it would be an honor to work here." When he began planning for his leave of absence in 1989, he wanted to make his living by writing. He had earned a Bachelor's degree in English at Niagara University and taken writing courses at Fordham and Stony Brook. He decided to apply to Doubleday, but when interviewed there he was told to get experience at a community newspaper. The first one he thought of was his hometown newspaper. The rest is local history.

HOLD THAT. LINE:-Not only did Freeport's defense hold the line, it also scored two TDs on interceptions.

sp>ortinQ devils from page 8 w i t h Valley Stream Central 3-3. Ishmael Palma scored off a cross from Corralles with 10 minutes left to tie it for Freeporl in a non-league game. Yerli Garz.on opened the scoring 24 minutes into the game on a 40-yard direct kick. Jessica Molina scored the w i n n i n g goal off an indirect kick for Freeport in a 2-1 win over Glen Cove. The only

other scorer was Jessie Seifert who scored her goal in the first half. Krissy Travers looked strong in goal with 12 saves for Freeport. Alexandria Medina served 10 points in the fifth and deciding game of the Freeport-Farmingdale volley hall match. Down two games, the Lady Devils had to dig deep in their mental game to offset the early deficit and win the match 26-28, 18-25, 25-20, 25-18. 25-22.

lottors to thio oditor from page 7 to an acceptable and satisfactory level throughout all our Freeport schools. History has shown us that from comparahle situations in other school "districts in this county where similar improvements in performance were made. Being the lowest cost per student among 56 school districts in Nassau County is not the answer. The answer is to get the job done in terms of performance, hut to do so cost effectively. If the administration and board feel we need to heef up certain areas with some added instructional staff, and I'm speaking of teachers, not more administration, then make the case and I'm sure we will support it.. I urge Trustee Ron Ellerbe's suggestion he pursued that parents be involved in the review and development-of this serious and critical academic improvement program, and I also suggest that Alan Jay's recommendation be followed as to having some non-parent Freeport taxpayers on the committee work also. All Freeport has to be involved with this. In my opinion there will be com-

munitywide support, as long as-tJjete_i&_ broad involvemenLin m~e~~3evelopmenl of the plan. The board, administration, and teaching staff have already proven they can get the job done with the excellent work Ihey did in the four elementary schools: Now we need to keep these gains in place, but expand it. Let me acknowledge that academic results improvement at Dodd, and Freeport High School present a whole new challenge; but 1 say to the board, tell us what it is, involve the community, and I'm sure you will get the required support. We are serious about wanting to extend the significant results from this past year of our four elementary schools, now into Dodd Middle School and Freeport High School. The winners will be the students, their families, and property values. No one wants to rush and buy into a community with a school system that consistently has always been in the very bottom categories of academic performance. The good news is, I see a change, we're making progress, so let's keep the ball rolling. Thank you. Bruce Lloyd

Hiring site a success from page 3 and receive work according to their number. A contractor will come up and speak to me," said Mr. Cortes. "He'll say [for example] I'm looking for a roofer. At this point I know who is who and what they can do. The contractor offers a certain amount of money. I ask him the hours, how many squares.'? Then there is a little hit of negotiation. Sometimes a relationship is established between a certain worker and a contractor," he said. Eric told The Leader his number was four. "I think I'll work today," he said.

Do all the day. workers in the area use the site? "The Freeport police have made a real effort to steer everyone here." said Ms. Maquilon. Before the site opened many day laborers gathered in the parking lot by D u n k i n ' Donuls and Sunrise Highway. "Not too many people go there anymore," she said. But Hector and several other men were at the Dunkin' Donuts site looking for work. They didn't know about the site. "I come here six days a week. I. make about $60, $70, or $80 a day. I'll do anything. I just want to work," lie said.

at the Freeport Library, Talking about literature Talking 1 About Literature is a monthly ..book discussion series that meets o.n the first Friday every month from noon to 1:30 p.m. thcough June.

As registration is not rec|uircd, you are always welcome to attend any or all of these stimulating discussions. You may bring your lunch; dessert and beverage will be provided. The book chosen I or "October 3 is "The Beautiful Mrs. Seidenmann" by Andr/.ej Szc/.ypiorski. In Na/.i-occupied Warsaw of 1943, a young Jewish widow passes as the wife of a Polish officer until an informer spots her and drags her off to the Gestapo. Portfolio growth On Tuesday, October 7, at 10:30 a.m., the library will offer a free program on how to bring "Guaranteed Protected Growth to Your Portfolio" conducted by Katherine D. --Agrillo, Certified Financial Planner, •Certified Life Underwriter, Chartered Financial Consultant. She will help you understand risk tolerance, the need for diversification and the need to identify

financial goals and learn to take advantage of current market conditions. Music series ~~ On Tuesdays, October 7, 14, 21, and 28 at 2 p.m. former Freeport' Mayor Bob Sweeney will continue the video course on How to Listen to and Appreciate Great Music. The October 7 session discusses Classical-Era Forms. Minuet and Trio. I (Baroque Antecedents) and II and Rondo.

Computer third grade Third grade in the library's adult computer class will take-place on-Oetober- 9-from 6-8 p.m. Third grade is a continuation of the windows environment with emphasis on pop-up menus and properties, creating shortcuts, My Computer and Windows Explorer.

Current events The Library's "Current events in Perspective" series, hosted by Michael DTnnocenzo of Hofstra University, will continue on Wednesday, October 8 at 1 p.m. Professor DTnnocenzo will offer perspectives on the people and events that define our limes. He will invite a'ndTacililate an exchange of views, and encourage creative thought concerning the issues of the day.

Residents question project from page 5 property was also suggested. Town board member Dorothy Goosby asked if there would.be any affordable units. Mr. Tuccillo said that he felt that with two people working, "One thousand dollars from each is affordable." In response to Ms. Goosby's comments concerning the need for lower price rentals, Ms. Hernandez asked if she could comment again. She described the loitering of people who live in the lower priced rentals in the area as well as the shabby appearance of the buildings. "That's what would happen if you have lower rentals," she added. She noted that she had called ~ the building department many times, but problems still exist. Looking into the auditorium where there were representatives from many of the town's departments, Supervisor Kate Murray asked, "Is there anyone here from the building department?" When Mr. Schwartz of the building department stood, she suggested that he visit the sites mentioned by Ms. Hernandez. He indicated

that the building department had previously inspected the buildings and "found no violations." Ms. Murray responded, "Go tomorrow." Mr. Tuccillo was also asked for the addresses of some of his properties in other communities, presumably so that board members could view those sites. The lack of widespread individual notice of the community meeting and public hearing beyond the legal requirements resulted in Supervisor Murray inviting any group or individual to submit letters to the board. She said that these would be included in the file and considered during itsdeliberation. The board reserved decision on the proposal. In other comments during audience questions, one resident, seemingly not understanding the parameters of this hearing, spoke about a different anticipated project which would extend senior citizen housing on Grand Avenue. The site under consideration is a single family plot just north of the Hallandia development near Atlantic Avenue. A meeting for nearby residents has already been held.

60 years of 'Service above self On October 9, 1943, a new service club came on the Freeport scene, and for 60 years the Freeport Rotary Club has been helping to improve the lives of people in our village, our country and our world. On Thursday, October 9, at 7 p.m. the Freeport Rotary Club will celebrate that tradition with a 60th anniversary dinner.

The public is welcome, and members of Rotary Clubs in Baldwin and Oceanside (descendents of the Freeport Club) will be represented. It will be an enjoyable evening of fun, fellowship and an opportunity to learn about the unique worldwide role of Rotary International in joining people together to serve humanity..
