WHIP 1 'Âą1 El by Laura Schofer "There is far too much cynicism about running for [political] office. It takes tremendous energy and time," commented Larry Levy, Newsday columnist and moderator at the debate between candidates of the. 19th Legislative District of Nassau County. The debate took place on Tuesday, October 14 at The Suburban Temple in Wantagh. "Since the county legislature has come into power the quality of candidates and incumbents. have improved. Competition attracts better candidates. I think we see that here tonight," said Mr. Levy. Both incumbent David Denenberg, Democrat, and challenger Michael Mirotznik, Republican, grew up in East Meadow. Both candidates are practicing lawyers. Mr. Denenberg has an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering

from Cooper Union; Mr. Mirotznik has an undergraduate degree in political science from New York University. Mr. Denenberg lives in Merrick and' Mr. Mirotznik lives in Bellmore. "I ran [for Nassau County Legislature] because I wanted to make a difference," said Mr. Denenberg. "I felt that government should be more accessible, which is why I have monthly public meetings. I've had 83 meetings so far and that's actually more than once a month when there's been an important issue in the community," he said. Mr. Mirotznik said "there are a number of issues that led me to run for office, including taxes. This is a tremendous issue and could make a difference in the quality of our lives. I believe in a checks and balances system with bi-partisan decision making. I have many friends who can't live here because of the cost of

living," he said. Mr. Levy asked each candidate to comment and critique the reassessment process. Mr. Denenberg supports the reassessment process. "lnÂŤny district we should get some help. It's a middle of the road district compared to the North Shore," he said. "I voted on this for two reasons, the first is for pure fairness reasons. Some of the properties were underassessed and other in Bellmore and Merrick are overassessed. The county assessor [under Thomas Gulotta] established a blue ribbon panel that said we didn't need reassessment and we lost two years. Then on the eve of a trial Charlie [O'Shea, county assessor] said we had to do it. The review process was killing us. We were processing 2,000 out of the 80,000 cases [on aggrieved taxes]. It turns out the commission [under Mr. Gulotta] was corrupt

and scandal-ridden. A year ago we passed assessment review reform and we've seen immediate progress.'• 40,000 out of the 70,000 cases have'been dealt with." Mr. Mirotznik also agreed that assessment was necessary. "I volunteered 'to be on a review panel and combined with testimony we determined that assessment was necessary. Judge Dana Winslow decreed to implement the assessment process and that it had to be done in a certain way. The judge is still monitoring the process," he said. "But the big issue is the billion dollars of debt and interest we have that needs to be whittled down. We need to do more than just pay debt service. We've all taken a big hit on the reassessment. We now need to figure out how to stay in our homes." ;

1st and 5th LD candidates on the issues by Joan Delaney Democrat and Republican candidates for the first and fifth districts in the Nassau County Legislature participated in a lively but tightly monitored forum on Thursday evening, October 16. Incumbents Kevan Abrahams (D-l LD) and Joseph Scannell (D-5 LD) and challengers Ricky Larosa (R-l L.D) and Kevin Kamen (R-5 L.D.) discussed a

wide range of issues at the candidates' forum that was co-sponsored by the Baldwin Oaks Civic Association and the Baldwin Community Association. The forum was moderated by the League of Women's Voters. Conservative Party candidate Susan Wilmer (C-5 L.D.), a Baldwinite, did not attend. The Democratic incumbents stayed close to the party's fiscal and economic outline. Both enumerated County

CANDIDATES: Present at the Baldwin Oaks Forum were, ffrom left Kevan Abrahams, Ricky Larosa, League of Women Voters Moderator, Kevin Kamen, and Joseph Scannell.

Executive Thomas Suozzi's five point plan for financial recovery and his six point plan for economic development that have been the backbone of numerous public presentations by administration officials. They noted improvements in bond ratings, a decreased workforce, and lower debt service. Challenger Ricky Larosa spoke of the failure of the two-party system and the disatisfaction of voters. Referring to higher level officials of both parties, he said, "Those people have already been bought and sold. We can only have an impact at the grass-roots level." Baldwinite Kevin Kamen focused on his 26-year record of achievement as a member of the Library Board. "I helped put together 26 budgets, helped negotiate eight contracts and two bonds. I'm not just saying it; I've been doing it." Audience members wrote their questions on green index cards and 12 questions or groups of questions were covered in the course of the two hour forum. Primary among the concerns were quality of life and code enforcement, issues as well as affordable housing, gangs, canals, voter apathy, recall elections, unfunded mandates, parking for the handicapped, illegal apartments, high taxes, and economic development. Mr. Abrahams and Mr. Larosa, whose first legislative district only represents a small portion of Baldwin and

Freeport, were less scripted .in their answers. In response to a question on waterways, Mr. Abrahams noted that the first legislative district "has no waterways, but we do have preserves." He then knowledgeably and spontaneously explained concerns and initiatives relative to litter and mosquito control in those areas with Mr. Larosa adding his preference for organic treatment rather than pesticide solutions.. ' Mr. Scannell expressed concerns and commitment relative to canal issues in south Baldwin and Mr. Kamen pledged to "sit down within 30 days to find out who you contacted, what was achieved and what was not accomplished." Responding to questions about party loyalty and independence, both Mr. Abrahams and Mr. Scannell said that they had voted against the party. Mr. Abrahams (continued on page 6)

Freeport to apply for federal Saw enforcement grant by Jim Golding Freeport trustees held a public hearing Monday for public input on a $40,000 federal law enforcement grant Village officials hope to receive for the Police Department. If Freeport receives the U.S. Justice Department grant, funds could be used in seven law enforcement categories, Deputy Village Attorney Howard Colton explained in his presentation, including personnel, overtime and technology; school security, drug courts, a multi-unit task force and other uses. But Police Chief Michael Woodward said the funds would mostly be used to pay for overtime, "to reduce the burden on the taxpayer." He said funding through such grants "has gone down significantly" in recent years and there is "no guarantee of continued funding" in the future. If the grant were awarded, Freeport would provide matching funds totaling $4,457 from the Police Department's budget."

Glacken responded that the work involved multiple units that serve the entire firehouse. "I think you've got the wrong'idea here." he said. The board of trustees also approved payment of $3,344 to Castle Industries for sidewalk repairs and voted to lower the assessment at 93 Washington Street from $6,500 to $5,148.

WALKING FOR EDUCATION: Freeport Dollars for Scholars was represented at the Easy Spirit Dollars for Scholars Freedom Walk for Education, which took place October 4 at Hudson River Park in New York City.

The community newspaper - the glue that helps hold a community together, and the spur that helps keep it moving forward.

Your school taxes and your school board October 28 marks the beginning of a week recognizing the role of our elected school boards. These .unpaid positions are filled by local residents just like • you or me, who pay taxes just like us. Unless they are already educators or accounting experts they have a lot of homework to do when first elected to their jobs. And over the years they acquire a great deal of knowledge about what it takes to run a modern-day school system. This is a far day from the olden days when a group of farmers would pool their expenses and host a schoolteacher in a one-room schoolhouse. The issues can be quite complicated, and yet the representation from parents and residents in the community is still important, even though the professionals also have the best interests of the children at heart. School board meetings by law must be open to the public except for a few personnel and legal issues that may be discussed in executive session. However, most school board meetings are very sparsely attended, with maybe only a few representatives of the staff and Parent Teacher Association (PTA), and a reporter from the community newspaper. But whenever there is a big controversy, hundreds of local residents may suddenly turn out, wanting to influence a decision or complain about one. Sometimes one of the protestors will become inspired to run for a school board seat, and thus provide new blood. . The sad truth is that some school boards have a hard time finding volunteers for seats. They are eager to reach out to PTAs and the community for volunteers. Many elections go uncontested. School boards want the community to know what their expenses are, what the state mandates are, and what the state aid will be and explain the impact on taxes. Unfortunately their words often fall on deaf ears. Recently, when (he new school tax bills went out, many residents received an unpleasant surprise, with significant increases. School boards have been warning us about "the perfect storm" combining the effects of reassessment, a poor economy and cuts in state aid. Now it has hit. Hopefully, it will inspire more of us to attend school board meetings and find out what is going on, or at least read the reports in the community newspaper. After all, knowledge is power. Our schools' costs affect our pocketbooks in many ways. Their reputations impact on our property values. Their costs influence our taxes. And their product, the children they educate, will be the force that runs our economy in the future. The better their education, the more productive they will be. That's a big responsibility. In the weeks ahead, how about thanking a school board member and asking how you can help?

Those working in Freeport Harbor with SPLASH will meet at the Albany Avenue

jUSt. writ© t>y WHY THE SURPRISE?...Wilh the arrival of lax bills, various taxing entities are running for cover and thousands of residents are incensed. How could their tax hills increase by so much? Equally angry should be those residents who saw their lax bills decrease by si/.eable margins as a result of reassessment. What that means is thai undoubtedly they have been paying loo much in taxes, possibly lor as long as they have owned their homes. Whal Ihey have discovered is that (heir individual attempts U> challenge assessments, which were often denied, were right on target. They were paying loo much and for loo long. Some of the surprise, certainly the si/e of some of the increases, is valid. But some of (he surprise is because people have not been involved in learning about the reassessment process. Neither are lliey involved in learning about their annual school budgets. Most people don't vole and are unaware of the size of the annual school budgets. Most people do not understand all Ihe services that school districts must provide. Many of those who do vote have as their sole priority the education of their children with all the hoops and whistles that suburban education includes. People did nol put all the pieces of the pu//.le together and recognize that eventually a tax bill would be generated. During all the discussions, court cases and courl orders regarding reassessment and the improvements it was supposed to bring, many people failed lo hear an important fact. Each school districts

properly owners are responsible for the tax levy within that districl. Changes in reassessment in one district do not affect Ihe tax bill of any other school district. The consequence is that increases in the property values of expensive homes on the north shore did not help anyone on Ihe soulh shore when il came to school taxes. Whal did happen, however, is that there were homes within every individual school district which were assessed too low. Those assessments were increased and those lax bills are now higher, (ll should be some consolation for these homeowners to know that they have gotten away with lower tax bills for years.) Those people who were paying inappropriately high taxes because of an inaccurately high assessment now are enjoying lower tax bills. It has been said thai prior lo reassessment 1/3 were correct, 1/3 were too high and 1/3 were loo low. Now we see various enlilies trying to distance ihemselves from the lax bills. School districts, assessors and receivers of taxes are all staling thai they don't set Ihe lax rate. It's immaterial who actually "sets" Ihe lax rale. The lax rale results from two factors. The first factor is the lax levy which Ihe school district sets. This is the amount of money'it needs lo collect. The amount of the actual tax levy is the annual expense budget minus state aid and any other revenues. The number left is the lax levy - the amount thai must be raised through taxes.

The second factor is Ihe counly's assessment 1 of the lolal valualion of all the property in a particular school districl. All the'properly adds up to 100 percent and each property owner, based on his individual assessment, pays a portion , of that 100 percent. For years, members of the Baldwin Board of Education have lobbied legislators^ asking them to approve some changes which would help to equalize the tax burden between wealthy and poorer districts. They have asked for some sort of regional adjustment whereby bedroom communities could receive a share of the taxes generated from large regional malls. Residents in communities where those malls are located, however, say "no deal." "Why should we have all Ihe negatives connected wilh commercial areas and nol receive all the benefits?" This coming year, Baldwiniles will have numerous opportunities to participate in discussions relative to the annual schooj budget as well other opportunities to hear about an expected bond issue of approximately $28 million for facilities improvements. Without changes in the way we fund education, we can only expect that the annual school budgel and our taxes will continue to go up. Contracts, even if they increase by only small percentages, have a large impact since school districts are labor intensive. Il would also be unrealistic lo think thai oilier costs will tjo down. Additionally, a bond issue will be the

only choice left to school districts in funding capital improvements because of recent decisions by the slale in how il will reimburse those costs. This change will have significant, long-term tax ramifications as school districts mimic the state. Districts, too, will begin to bond costs that formerly were financed on a pay-as-you-go basis. Eventually the cumulative financial impact of bonding (called debt service) will be a larger and larger part of each and every budget. One can only expect that school districts will need to pass bond issues to pay for facilities improvements on some sort of regular basis. With annual budgets constantly increasing, unfunded mandates continuing to be issued by the state and federal government, and additional debt service attached to new bond issues, school budgels will continue lo rise. In older Nassau County communities, with no empty space for adding more taxable property, there will be no way to expand the tax base to offset those rising costs. While some of ibis year's tax bills are a surprise for property owners, this is only Ihe beginning. School budget increases will be ongoing. We urge our readers to become involved, to attend meetings, ask questions, and provide input. We urge readers to write to legislators to correct f u n d i n g inequities. Without thai, we must prepare lo be cont i n u a l l y surprised.

1st and 5th LD from page 1 said he 'voted against cuts to youth programs. Mr. Scannejl noted, "Judy [Jacobs, m the majority leader] hasn't always been happy with me." Mr. Larosa spoke of being CN removed as a committeeman of the <N Republican Party in the Village of Hempstead because he protested I O Congressman Peter King's " English only" legislation. He added, "I am loyal to the party to the extent they do the right thing." a Mr. Kamen noted his outspokenness and 1 his votes for the people on the library board. "Anyone who knows me knows H that I would never sell my soul. In 26 years I've taken public service seriously." W Q . All the candidates supported greater < efforts against gang violence. Mr. Abrahams spoke of the need for cooperaw tive efforts by government, the schools, the home and faith-based groups. "They have to step up to the plate." He addressed the work of the Team Against Gangs (TAG) • task forces. Mr. Scannell noted his work on the Public Safety Committee where he held hearings on gangs and the greater commitment of personnel for anti-gang t efforts in the First Precinct. Mr. Kamen, speaking of his service in the Baldwin Auxiliary Police, promised to seek an even greater commitment from the police commissioner and, if necessary, expand the network of response to include the FBI. <U (50


Mr. Larosa, identifying himself as an Hispanic, said that any illegal person over 18 who commits drug or gang related crimes that include bodily harm should he deported. Regarding a new or refurbished Coliseum for the Nets, all candidates agreed that any funding should be from private sources. Regarding code enforcement, all spoke of the need for a more aggressive stance and for cooperation with the Town of Hempstead, which has most of that responsibility. While supportive of affordable housing initiatives, particularly for senior citizens, all the candidates gravitated to the problem of illegal occupancy and its impact on school costs. The main difference between the challengers and the incumbents was summarized by Mr. Kamen, who noted, "We can do better." Both he and Mr. Larosa acknowledged the mistakes of past administrations but both stressed that they would be more aggressive in representing the people's issues rather than being "rubber stamps." Both referred frequently to Mr. Suozzi's large tax increases. Mr. Larosa described 130 high level appointed administrative positions and numerous department level "commissioners, deputy commissioners and assistants to the commissioners. The patronage has to stop," he

said, adding; "Both parties are dead-guilty of it." Mr.'Abrahams said that the question to be asked is "Are we moving forward." He added, "No one is saying the county is going backwards." He added that any criticism should, "Say what you would have done in its place." In his .concluding remarks he reminded residents to remember the slim 10-9 majority position of the Democrats in the county legislature when they cast their ballots. The Republican candidates noted the importance of a checks and balances system. Mr. Larosa estimated that only 22 percent,of eligible voters will cast their ballots in this off-year local election. In response to a question it was noted that the position of county legislator is part time, paying $39,500. The commitment includes attending two full day meetings a month, several committee meetings, and some budget hearings. Depending on the involvement of


a particular legislator, additional lime may be spent in a local office or at constituent meetings. While the meeting was generally cordial. Hashes of the animosity generated in the Kamen-Scannell campaign flared when Mr. Scannell said that "Mr. Kamen has a 26-year history of raising taxes on the library board." Mr. Kamen responded thai in 26 years, which included two expansions, the library budgc.l has never increased by more than the cost of living. He told Mr. Scannell. "It's not my budget. The people of Baldwin have voted to pass the library budget every year for 26 years." For the average homeowner, the library tax represents a total of approximately $2.00 for the entire year. Last year, the actual increase for most homeowners amounted, to about $10. Mr. Larosa reminded the audience that school costs represent 62 percent of (heir taxes.

4 students represent Baldwin at NYSSMA All-State Four students from Baldwin Senior High School have been accepted into New York State School Music Association's (NYSSMA) All-State Performing Music Groups: Paul Byssainthe, Jr., as bass in Mixed Chorus and cello alternate for Orchestra; Kristen Dye on piccolo in the Symphonic Band and as alto in Mixed Chorus; John MezzinaHannigan as bass in the Vocal Jazz ~ Ensemble; and Porsha Monroe as alto in Mixed Chorus. Because students can perform in only one NYSSMA performing group, Paul Byssainthe, Jr., has chosen Mixed Chorus and Kristen Dye has decided on the Symphonic Band. This is John •Mezzina-Hannigan's second year in All-State; last year he was a member of Mixed Chorus. All the students are in their senior year at Baldwin Senior High School. Students are chosen for All-Slate through an audition process sponsored by NYSSMA every spring. According to NYSSMA, about 6,000 students try out for the eight All-State performing groups, and under 900 are selected to participate a n n u a l l y . "There is ncr guaranteed representation," noted Peter Freeman, Director of Fine and Performing Arts for Baldwin schools, "so having four students from our district involved is a major accomplishment." The All-Slate ensembles w i l l rehearse and perform at Eastman Hall


in Rochester from. November 30 through December 3 as part of the NYSSMA Winter Conference. During their brief free time, students can" attend workshops and showcases on music education or visit vendor tables to try out new instruments and meet college representatives. The Baldwin school district has a long-established, comprehensive music program, including the Suzuki String Program starting in third grade and performance opportunity for all students from kindergarten through grade 5. This year, the district was named as one of the top 100 music education programs in the United States based on a nationwide survey conducted by the American Music Conference and several partner organizations in the fields of education and music.

Bayview students celebrate grandparents Bayview Avenue School in Freeport was recently the scene of bushels of affection, exchanged between elementary students, their grandparents and other special persons in their lives, and some local nursing home residents. It was the school's annual Grandparents' and Special Persons' Day, an opportunity for students to recite, sing and count the ways they love their own grandparents and special persons - and for the objects of their affection to return the sentiment. The day began as the grandparents arrived and wrote words of wisdom on easels placed in the school lobby. Typical .was the sentiment expressed by Pearl Fox of Roosevelt, whose granddaughter Kierra Harvey attends

Bayview. "Keep up the good work." .Fox wrote. "Love, your grandma." The program continued w i t h performances by the students inside the school auditorium. A "Special Person Poem" was read by students who then presented bouquets of flowers to senior citi/ens v i s i t i n g from (he South Shore Health Care Center and the Meadowbrook Care Center, both located in Freeport. The ceremony continued with a tribute to the grandparents of the Bayview students, a musical selection titled. "Thai's a Family." and reflections by a third grade ensemble. In the end. the students agreed that when it comes to special people, their grandparents are about as special as you can gel.

Chief Woodward addresses Freeport chamber adolescents, such as Freeport's Police Department "Adopt a Cop Program" to strengthen the bond between school children and their local law enforce- • menl agency. Other recommendations include: • All adults who interact with children and adolescents should make a special effort to communicate and listen to them. • After-school activities should be monitored by parents or mentors. • All guns and weapons should he secured in a family residence, to prevent unauthorized access to them. • Adults should monitor a child's Internet access.

Chief Woodward also advises all Freeport residents to report any signs of gang involvement by immediately calling the Freeport . Police Department at 378-0700.

This is the second year that the Middle School invited the historical rcenaclors to conduct their interpretative presentation. The students came out by team to the Middle School field during four presentations that ran two periods long. They sat on the ground to listen to the demonstrations followed by question-and-answer .sessions. Tom Mohr and A p r i l Taylor of L i v i n g History Associates, dressed as infantry soldiers, detailed a soldier's life during the C i v i l War. They told the students about their rations (usually hardtack and mule meal), the wool u n i f o r m s (hat c o n t r i b u t e d to heat 'proslralion, and how muskel balls created tremendous wounds that often became infecled and caused death. Frank Boerllein of Jackson's Virginia F l y i n g Artillery demonstrated the d i f ferent parts of an 1861 cannon and explained that it was the most feared

weapon during the war. "It's one thing to teach the students about the war and lo read about it in a book. It becomes just a fact and a slalislic, but when you see the uniforms and how the soldiers were mistreated, that's a whole different story," said James Gorecki, Social Studies

David Denenberg

Michael Mirotznik

Denenberg-Mirotznik from page 1 How would (he candidates whittle down the debt'.' "It's not easy to answer," said Mr. Mirot/.nik. "But I understand numbers and I've seen what's happened over the past four years. Properly taxes have increased by 57 percent. Yes, only a small portion of that is county taxes bulthey have added seven new departments and brought in consultants and lobbyists. What did they [the lobbyists) bring back to Nassau County from the federal government?" "That doesn't even add up to $1 million," replied Mr. Denenberg, referring to the new county departments. Total spending has not gone up. Debt was incurred under the former administra- > lion. The budget for [for this fiscal year] is about 2.2 to 2.3. billion and that's what it is lor 2004. Our budget hasn't changed despite the increase of state mandates to the pension fund and medicaid." Mr. Denenberg explained that the county has raised $100 million through taxes; the rest were "cuts from the budget. We balanced lax increases with cuts and kept essential services," he said. "For a number of years New York City lowered the sales lax several times a year. Have we evaluated our lost revenue due to our high sales tax?" asked one resident. Mr. Denenberg replied that New York

Interim Finance Authority (NYIFA) claimed the county actually lost revenue instead of earning extra money when the sales lax was lowered. But Mr. Mirol/nik said that "in theory I like the idea of culling sales tax. \ like the idea of encouraging business. Do business with people who do business wilh you," he said. "I don't think we should do business wilh firms thai are not from Long Island. You bought computers from Minnesota, why not Long Island?" "We didn't buy computers from Minnesota," replied Mr. Denenberg. He added that "General Obligation law requires that, through a sealed bid process, work is given to the lowest responsible bidder, otherwise there would be a lawsuit." "I've lived in Nassau County for 20 years and have never used the schools. My taxes are up by $4,000. It's not fair," said another woman in the audience. "We're all frustrated. But the truth is that ihe slale of New York used to fund aboul 30 percent of our schools and in some distriels it's now as liltle as 15 to 16 percent. We need lo have smart growth codes; mixed zoning helps wilh economic development," said Mr. Denenberg. Mr. Mirotznik agreed. "It's a lerrible problem and it's not going to change unless we talk about increasing business. That's Ihe long- term solution."

Meet the chef: Jeanne Cairns of the Bayou in North Bellnwre

The hardest catering job chef Jeanne Cairns of the Bayou in North Bcllmore ever had was to build and transport a nautical themed wedding cake to a Fire Island during oo a hurricane. It was touch 'E and go Q there, with T3 the rocky ferry ride, « the trip in a! a wheelbarrow and then putting together all the layers while working inside a walk-in refrigerator so the' cake wouldn't melt. But the couple liked it so much they asked for an anniversary cake, decorated with sea shells and a lighthouse, two years later - on September 11. Another unforgettable experience, five gallons of gumbo that spilled in her car on the way to Bloomingdale's food tasting. Luckily, there was also plenty of seafood jambalaya to serve instead. Just after this summer's blackout,*'someregular customers asked her to .cater, a Cajun meaj-. because they trusted' her to. use fresh .fo.od.

The PTA at her daugh-' ter's school also chose her to cater a Mardi Gras fundraiser because they knew they could count on her. Jeanne Cairns studied art at Potsdam and cooking at NY Tech but said she learned the most about artistic food preparation from chef Claire Fastenau at the Bayou Uptown. Claire how works ' at Rattlesnake*'' Jones in Merrick.' ' ' '' • Any special advice for a young couple' hosting their extended family of 20-plus for the first time at Thanksgiving? Jeanne suggests making what you do .best (sides or dessert) and ordering the rest, because making it all is a daunting task. Two small turkeys will be tastier than one over 14 pounds, she says. OK, and you can get your'stuffing, pecan pie or punip'khi cheesecake -at 'the Bayou1. ' -•••'.-.• • fHere's-. h,er-,recipe- for, ,cornbread:. - , ' •; ,

' The pervading aura of this friendly pub-style establishment is definitely unpretentious.' Dark, w.arn^wobds on walls and, floors are brightened'by the red and white checkered linen tablecloths. Photo memorabilia,'which festoon the rustic walls, include nostalgic scenes of the Old West. The Jets (who practice nearby and are known to frequent this restaurant) and the Islanders have also added interesting sporting additions to the decor. There is also a carpeted second story, which is more conducive to quieter dining, and can accommodate private parties. It's been over ten years since the prolific restaurateur George Poll opened this East Meadow steakhouse. Another Majors was opened in Woodbury a year later. Great beef at inexpensive prices were, and still remain to be, the successful ingredients to this winning operation. You'll find a nice assortment of pickles and sauerkraut brought to your table while perusing the no-frills menu, although interesting Blackboard Specials are offered daily. An order of Clams Oreganata, which was served as an appetizer, consisted of sweet, very fresh, fullbellied Little Necks, a delicately seasoned sauce, and just a nice light breading. A fabulous salad of homemade,'Mozzarel la1 arid local Beefsteak tomatoes were drizzled in olive oil and seasoned with fresh pepper. Caesar Salad is also'algbod choice, but the regulars adore'the' Hearts of Lettuce served with tomatoes'and crumpled'blue'cheese. The most popular entree is the Majors Steak. It's a ribeye weighing in at 24 ounces, tasty, and deliciously tender, and is priced at only $14.95! Steak-lovers would find that hard to beat. The Filet Mignon is also a good deal. It arrived as a generous portion, cooked as requested (medium rare), and also very tender. But beef is not the only staple on the menu. BBQ ribs had a nice smoked flavor and a tangy sauce, and the grilled skewered shrimp were plump and tasty. Lobster tails were large, very tasty and served with the traditional dousing of drawn butter. The restaurant also offers a nice variety of very fresh fish dinners including salmon, swordfish and tuna. Although entrees come with a choice of potato, I would recommend a side of their good old-fashioned creamed spinach. It's better than your mother's. Sauteed onions with mushrooms were also down-home delicious. Both the Key Lime Pie and the creamy Rice Pudding are homemade. New York Style Cheesecake was excellent. It's served with a .generous portion of strawberries. Chocolate fans] adore the Mud Pie. The full bar offers a nice selection of moderately priced wines, which can be purchased by the bottle or the glass. Beers are served by the bottle and on tap by the glass, pint, mug, or pitcher. Martini selections run the gamut from the traditional to the exotic, including the Big Apple, a Cosmopolitan or a decadent Chocolate Martini. The restaurant is open daily for both lunch and dinner, offering both entree and lighter fare. Hamburgers, sandwiches salads and wraps are also represented on the menu as well as the Blackboard. Ample parking is available in their private lot, and all major credit cards are accepted. Take-out is also available. Majors serves very good food at very affordable prices. Consistent quality and good service attract both the young and the old, and accounts for their following of loyal customers. General Manager Bob Cunningham has trained a very well-oiled friendly staff. This is a Major accomplishment.

PaKTVOT VIVA WCOl Viva Loco on Merrick Road, Bellmore is always a party atmosphere, Since parties are their business they start the fall season with Halloween. The scene is a scream! .

Special give-aways will be awarded to best costume, most creative, scariest. A round-trip for two to Cancun and dinner for two are some great prizes, says the owner. The menu has surprises every weekend with chef's specials plus his signature dishes. Now is the time to book for your Holiday party — "I have holiday bookings since August, says Gino. Viva Loco becomes a Winter Wonderland for the holidays. The Viva Loco rockettes -- a mini-stationary version — add to the festivities. The poinsetta,

which is a champagne cocktail or the pink ribbon with cranberry vodka can be combined with the chef's selection of hors d'oeuvres. Three beautifully decorated party rooms will host a sit-down dinner, cocktail party or buffet. ItalianMexican cuisine includes a selection of the freshest seafood, pastas, chicken, steak, salads. Whatever your pleasure, speak to the manager or owner and they can put together your holiday party package — but do . it soon! No party is too small," says Gino. Valet parking is available.
