Village board hears Power Plant 2 report

Cleanup of PCBs at the Power Plant 2 site is about 95 percent complete, 8" Electric Department Superintendent Hubert Bianco said at Monday's Village Board meeting. <u Mr! Bianco was responding to qufso tions by Francis Cooper on progress of the cleanup at the site, its effect on construction of the plant and other, questions on the issue. • *' "~; The superintendent said there is "continuous monitoring" of the' cleanup and of air quality "to check PQ possible contaminants in the air." a on He said the work is being done under the direction of the state Department of Environmental Conservation. On whether the depth at which the contaminant has been found extends to 10 feet as has been previously reported,, Mr. Bianco said, "I don't recall. anything down to 10 feet," though he noted cleanup crews have "gone down to seven feet, to the water table," This prompted Mr. Cooper to ask if the PCBs have contaminated the water supply. Mr. Bianco said the chemical "clings to the soil and tends to stay there." Trustee Donald Miller added that Freeport's water supply is not affected because it comes from "north of Sunrise Highway." Mr. Bianco added, "I think we have it under control and there is no additional risk to residents. We've met all the DEC requirements. I think we're taken extraordinary measures." He also said the cleanup should be done this 'week within the construction area and that a smaller site would still remain to be cleared. Mr. Cooper also asked if the diesel generators would be shut down by November 30, as ordered by the DEC. Mr. Bianco replied that the village is appealing the order, but the generators are not operated "except to test them or in case of emergencies like the blackout." ,He added the . new power plant I

"should be on line by April; if-not sooner." Resident Alan Jay, offering his opinion on the issue, said'he thought pollution from oil-burningj furnaces from, private homes posed a larger pollution problem. "I don't know why - people are..so, obsessed with pollution ' from standby generators," he said. "I Jhink they should get;another hobby, "and Jej.the lights burn." . \ -JiflF.; Jay" also' commented on a :t November 14 Newsday article about the* high cost of municipal employee pension funds, which quoted Mayor William • Glacken who is leadingefforts to lobby the state legislafufe to change the method of financing. .The Mayor was in Albany on Monday to discuss the municipal employees retirement fund financing with legislators and did not attend the board meeting. (See page 27 for details of the Mayor's trip.) "Retirement before age 65 is economically unsustainable," Mr. Jaysaid. Resident Arlene Frederick inquired about progress on the downtown revitalization project and expressed frustration about the apparently slow pace on major improvements. "Why is everything taking so long?" she said. Deputy Mayor Renaire FriersonDavis replied that "revitalization can't happen all at once," and that facade improvements are continuing on a regular basis. "It takes time," she said. The deputy mayor also noted that the Main Street Mews project has begun and the triangle bank building project is also being addressed. "Everything has to be in order," Ms. Frierson-Davis said. "We'd much prefer to do things correctly so we don't have any problems when we<finish." Kenneth Bagatelle' asked about progress on the village's water well projects. Public Works Director Louis DiGrazia said one of the wells will go into service "in a week or two," while the other is being drilled but.it would be another year "before we're getting water from the site."

Freeport school board hears financial report by Jim Golding The Freeport school board heard a presentation on the district's annual financial audit by Pete Rodriguez of Coughlin, Foundotos, Cullen and Danowski LLP at their November 12 meeting and planned to take action on a resolution accepting the financial statements, but a plea by resident Alan Jay for public discussion prompted trustees to table the item until their next meeting on November 25. Mr. Jay asked the board to reconsider its action. Trustee Ron Ellerbe said Mr. Jay "raised a valid point" on the resolution and recommended that it be tabled "to allow the community to speak on the issue. "The community at large is not aware that we're voting on it tonight," he added. Trustee Michael Raab made a motion to table the resolution until the next

meeting. Board members voted to table . the item, with President Joseph Cattano casting a no vote. In other action, trustees reappointed Marvin H. Cohen to a five-year term on the library board. Mr. Jay questioned why Freeport residents could not vote for library trustees "as in Baldwin." Assistant Superintendent Kishore Kuncham explained that, under the, district's old charter dating back "70 or 80 years" the library is considered an integral part of the school system and trustees have since that time appointed the board members. In brief comments to the -school board, Superintendent Dr. Eric Eversley noted that state Department of Education officials had contacted him regarding the jump in district math test scores and have asked that he "advise them on factors contributing to that achievement."

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

Dear readers Faithful readers of this community newspaper will notice that there are a few more pages this week. We are sending out extra copies to accomodate oyr advertisers wishing to reach more people during the holiday sales season, and also as a way of introducing the paper to those who do not already subscribe: Our goal is to be a vehicle through which local groups can communicate with their members, as well as catching up on the local news and debates. To that end we offer organizations $6 for each new subscription they sell for us to their members. We provide them with a form to mail or hand out to members. (For information call 378-5320.) We also offer our readers an easy solution to the problem of what to give for the holidays. Give a gift subscription to this newspaper when you renew yours, which you can do early, by the way. It's at no extra cost to you and a gift that keeps on giving 52 weeks of the year for your friend or family member. Hopefully, through your good efforts and recommendation, we will also make a neW lifelong friend. We offer free access to our website, which does not include all of the contents of the community newspaper, but does hit some highlights. If you have not already visited it, please check it out and let us know what you think and what else you would like us to include. We don't want to sound preachy, but keeping up with the local news is important, no matter how busy we all are. Home reassessments, school and local taxes, and scandals such as the Mepham football camp attacks, all are matters that did not happen overnight. In many cases, we get the news from local board meetings, but in others, our readers break the stories. While we exist to serve our readers, we also rely on them to help break the.news. One reader's heartfelt plea to witnesses to come forward could be the the key.

Shop locally and save? What do you save? This holiday season many of us will spend more on gifts than any other time of the year. While what you buy is an important consideration, so is where you buy it. Spending your dollars locally brings a percent back to you because local businesses help shoulder the property tax burden, and they contribute to local teams, religious and service organizations. A healthy business district makes your own home's value grow. By shopping regularly at a local store, you also gain a friend who looks out for items that may interest you and is on hand to help you figure out how to use your new purchase. And wouldn't you feel better about buying a car from a guy whose son is on your son's soccer team? Many local merchants live locally and have the same interests you do. If you shop locally, you don't just save time and money, you save a small-town lifestyle that can be very heartwarming.

PARTNERS FOR SCHOOL REFORM: Freeport resident Willa Scott (left) was among Long Island community, business and education leaders who recently attended the Project GRAD Roosevelt 2003 Kick-Off Luncheon.at the Hoftra University Club. Project GRAD Roosevelt (GRAD stands for Graduation Really Achieves Dreams) is a nonprofit school-reform organization working with the Roosevelt community and school district to design and .implement comprehensive, long-term, cost-effective K-12 reform in all six district schools. The luncheon was organized to reach out to the community for support of Project GRAD, which depends on Long Island funding for over half of its annual budget. Greeting Scott are Project GRAD Roosevelt Board chairman and community activist Frank Scott (center), and Dr. Daryl Ogden, Executive Director of..Project GRAD Roosevelt.

THEY NEVER FORGET...During peacetime, most of us remember those who served our country in the military primarily on two holidays, Veterans Day and Memorial Day. Veterans Day, formerly called Armistice Day, celebrates the courage, bravery, and dedication of those service personnel who are still living. Memorial Day commemorates those who died in the service of our country. During wartime, our thoughts are with our troops more frequently, but those of us who have no one serving in the military and who have never served in the armed forces ourselves have little idea of what it is to put one's life in that kind of jeopardy. With the publication of the book about Pfc. Jessica Lynch, many media pundits are debating whether she is a hero or a victim. Still others are using the occasion to address the war itself and critique past decisions and present actions. During an interview, Rick Bragg, the writer of Private Lynch's story, "I am a Soldier, Too," said that he believes that anyone who serves, who "goes there," is a hero. I agree. At ceremonies on Veterans Day at Silver Lake Park, I had the privilege to watch veterans and their families participate in ceremonies that were both meaningful and poignant. Many of these veterans are in their late sixties or seventies, but when the Pledge of Allegiance was said, the Star Spangled

Banner sung, and "Taps" was played, these older men snapped to salute as though they were still the young men who were drafted in the prime of their youth. There are numerous veterans groups but only the American Legion is actually chartered by Congress, which establishes the'service dates necessary for eligibility. In order to encourage younger service personnel to join, Legionnaires want people to know that according to congressonal criteria, anyone serving in the military from Operation Desert Storm up to and including present service is eligible for Legion membership. Two Legion units are located in Baldwin. Post 246, the largest, is located on south Grand Avenue and has over 500 members enrolled. Roosevelt Post 1051, located in mid-Baldwin, has approximately 40 people enrolled with about 15 active members. The Veterans of Foreign Wars, locally consisting of approximately 98 people (45 from World War II and 50 from Korea) is also active and is open to anyone who served abroad for at least 30 days. Many veteran groups also have women's auxiliaries. There are 1,100 eligible veterans who live in Baldwin who don't belong lo the Legion. Nassau County Legion Commander Ken Cadeux noted that plans are underway to upgrade the grounds around the Silver Lake service monuments. He added that monuments commemorating

Parents protest grading system by Joan Delaney What's a rubric? A dozen parents expressed their frustration, concerns and criticisms' of a new report card and system of grading elementary level students at the November 12 Board of Education meeting held in Baldwin' Steele School. The new system follows the state system of grading students on a one through four method with a rubric of requirements outlined for each of the four categories. Level four, the highest, indicates that a child meets or exceeds that level's standards. Level three meets standards; level

two is below standards and level one is significantly below standards. Parents were particularly concerned about the use of this system in daily assignments. Parents stressed that they were given little notice or explanation of the new system and that teachers, themselves, are illprepared to grade students according to the new method. "Your guess is as good as mine," one parent quoted a teacher who attempted to explain the rubric process. Board members and administrators appeared surprised and subdued by the comments which lasted well over one hour during audience questions.

However, Board President James Scannell, after explaining the public process of input, channeled the responses, frequently expressing the board's thanks

to parents for the "specificity of your comments which will help us." (continued on page 21)

COLUMBUS' AVENUE SCHOOL in Freeport honored local veterans at a special Veteran's Day celebration. Pictured, from left, are Pre-K. students Gabriel Roache, Erica Mates De los Santos and Harrison Harding-Dieda, with veterans Elizabeth Knolhoff, Major Donald Moore, William Miller, Pat Yngstrom, Frank Colon, John Schreiber, Kevin Bishop and Spiro Colaitis.

Columbus students honor local vets Students at Freeport's Columbus Avenue School learned first hand why we celebrate Veteran's Day when they invited local veterans to their school for a special ceremony. The guest list included some familiar faces like their own Pre-K teacher John Schreiber, Archer Street School's assistant principal Kevin Bishop, and Spiro Colaitis, the Freeport Public Schools' director of facilities. Students met local veterans Pat Yngstrom and Frank Colon, and learned that the orange berets that they wore meant that they served in the Vietnam War. The children also met two World War II Navy veterans, Elizabeth Knolhoff, and William Miller, the father of their principal Peggy Miller. Members of the Freeport High School Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps, under the direction of Marine Major Donald Moore, presented the colors, and FHS student Daniel Tetreault played "Taps." Earlier in the week, all the children had drawn Veterans Day pictures. At the ceremony Principal Peggy Miller gave each guest a drawing as a special keepsake. The rest of the students' drawings will be sent to patients at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Northport. As a special gift to the students, veterans Yngstrom and Colon brought American flags for each child to take home. "Although our students are only 4

and 5 years old, said Ms. Miller, "we want them to begin to understand why we celebrate Veterans Day, and why it is so important to honor the men' and women who fought in the past and are still fighting today to protect and preserve freedom around the world."

Oh No, it's time to put up the Christmas lights by Laura Schofer I know it's almost Christmas. Just last Saturday morning I broached the most sensitive of subjects with my husband. It's become part of our Christmas ritual. I smile across the breakfast table and in the sweetest voice I can muster I say "You know, Christmas is coming. Why don't we hire Timmy four fireman neighbor and a licensed electrician] to put up the Christmas lights this year?" My husband doesn't bother to look up from the newspaper. He keeps his head down and replies, "I'll think about it." It's the same every year. I ask him, no, I beg him to get someone to take care of the dreaded job of putting up the Christinas lights, but he refuses. I think it must be some kind of macho male thing, like big tools and giant speakers for the stereo system. I like to call his lighting designs "creative." My son says his father is "CEO of the Bah Humbug School of Christmas Light Design." When my children were little I would . take them out the day my husband put up the Christmas lights.We would drive

around watching other Dads putting up their Christmas displays. They seemed to make it all look so easy. Children would scamper happily across the lawn. Moms would stand in the doorways holding trays filled with mugs of hot chocolate for the family. It looked like a real bonding experience. "Do you think Dad's in a bad mood yet?" my son would ask. I ignored the question. After all, I told myself, this Christmas is going to be different. I will not open my mouth. I will not get upset. By dusk we have seen dozen of homes bathed in glittering lights. The spruce garland and wreaths are placed around eaves and doorways; some homes have animated figures on lawns or in windows. One family has placed a spotlight on their chimney so passerbys can see Santa on the roof. My children ohh and ahh. "Let's go home," my daughter would squeal, "and see what Daddy has done!" The moment arrives. We would pull into the driveway. Lights are strung haphazardly around several bushes, then dropped across the front lawn. The

remaining lights are thrown over a few scrawny bushes on the other side of our property. "Not again," my son whines. "I wanted colored lights," my daughter whimpers. My husband is up on a ladder trying his best to hang the wreath on our chimney. I can see from here that it's not the best time to talk to him. But he climbs down the ladder to greet us. The wreath is crooked. Some of the lights on the wreath are missing. Meanwhile a string of lights attached to the wreath seem to hang in midair and disappear through my son's "bedroom window. He puffs out his chest. "Well, what do you think?" I can't help myself. My mother always told me my sharp tongue would

get me in trouble. "Pitiful," I reply. His face falls. I've done it again. I've just begun our annuaJ Christmas fight. My son takes my daughter's hand. "Let's go watch a video," he tells his sister. My husband and I glare at each other under the blinking, lopsided lights. "I thought we talked about this," I begin. He goes on and on about the broken lights, the missing boxes and the need for more and more extension cords that seem to disappear into the great black Christmas hole each year. "Next year, you hang the lights." He slams the door. Next year I'm going to hire the electrician. Now where did I put that telephone number?

by Mark Treske I admit i t - I am of a somewhat cranky and cynical nature.' So how was I supO posed to react, about a year ago, when <N told that I wpuld be a grandfather the • 5 .o following September? The woman I E married had borne her only child someo time before, and so instead of diapers 2 and feedings, I got proms, band concerts and .painful adolescent traumas. And I rt was damn sure that I had neither the 1 patience nor the generosity of spirit to P shepherd a newborn through baths, tears and "the terrible twos." So why did I react to the first glimpse of little Maya Elizabeth (so my stepdaughter tells me) with tears in my eyes? Why is there an album of pictures of Mark and Maya, the former still scowling but obviously moved? Because a child makes the world look entirely different - new and unspoiled, full of hope and promise. It's why, I suppose, the Christmas holiday is about a child. While in no way comparing my grand-

daughter to that child (however cute and clever little Maya may be) even a curmudgeon like myself feels differently since its birth, as if this new life makes everything more possible. . Mind vou, there are bits to be cynical about. My first visit to Babies V Us, for example. I had no idea that, like brides, babies are registered so that all that is needed/wanted to preserve the lifestyle to which they have become accustomed may be purchased. I wonder how babies are born throughout the Third World without $250 strollers, $500 cribs, breast pumps, mobiles and "Baby Mozart" videos? (And anyway, if you . want to bring up a musician, shouldn't you nurture that baby with more modern music? Baby P. Diddy? Baby Brittney Spears?) This was supplemented by. a trip to the Reading, Pennsylvania Outlet Shops, where every baby outfit east of the'Mississippi was purchased. But I jest. And after receiving e-mail throughout the pregnancy as Grace

'Extend the Holidays' toy drive Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) today kicked off his 6th annual "Extend the Holidays" toy drive for children spending the holidays in the hospital. New unwrapped toys can be deliy- ered to Senator Fuschiilo's office in Room 305 at 30 South Ocean Avenue in Freeport. The age range for the donated toys should be from infant to early teen. "Continuing this toy drive every year is an important holiday tradition. It enables us to put some smiles on the faces of children spending the holidays in the hospital," said Senator Fuschillo. "Thanks to the con-

tinued generosity of residents and organizations on Long Island, we have been able to bring some joy to an unfair situation. I am confident that this year will be even more of a success than years past." Senator Fuschiilo's "Extend the Holidays" toy drive is now a unique tradition in its sixth year. By delivering the toys to the children after the holiday season, he allows them to enjoy a little extra seasonal cheer. "It's never fun for a child to be in the hospital, so by extending the season it cheers them up and helps them cope," Senator Fuschillo said.

became "bigger by the day," we became more concerned as she reached - and passed - her due date and the child showed no intention of being born any time soon. We already knew this baby was large (9 pounds, 8 ounces when it was born 10 days late) and although she was well cared for, it was scary to never be unaware of what could go wrong, especially when the labor wasn't progressing several hours after the water broke. So it was a joy and a relief when the phone rang at 2 a.m., September 19, and we heard my son-in-law - "Maya born by C-Section 11:55 p.m. September 18 - mother and baby fine." And now, several e-mailed photos, many phone calls, a trip to Chicago (where mom and dad live) and ? photo album later I am - in spite of myself -

looking, forward to influencing this young life (who is generally referred to as "the little nugget") and watching her grow. Not to spoil her, understand, but to introduce her to certain things that she must be introduced to.

By Linda Hendrickson It's a wrap! The Freeport Red Devils Football Team will play in the Conference I Championship Football game at Hofstra on Sunday, November 23 against the Dalers from Farmingdale following its 62-22 win over the Hempstead Tigers on Saturday. The Red Devils scored early following four consecutive handoffs to Leslie Jackman who ran for 15, 7, 17, and 19 yards to score the first touchdown with 2 1/2 minutes into the game. Freeport looked like Air Express after that. First Taylor Eason scored on a 21-yard pass from quarterback Randy Mills, then Jackman ran in a TD from the 1-yard line following a 42-yard pass completion to Eason on the previous play. Bobby Hogan scored on a 38-yard pass from Mills and Eric Reitmayer scored on a 59-yard pass from Mills. Jackman, who looked like a tenacious bulldog all day, was asked once again to run the ball from the line of scrimmage and scored from the 3-yard line, thus ending the first half scoring. Jet Bates made a big play for Freeport defensively when he tackled Hempstead's Fred Williams; Bates was the only person left between Williams and the goal. Bates also had two huge interceptions and scored two on a conversion from Eason in the third quarter. Stanley Guitterez, Adam Woodmansee, Kyle Greenwood, Mike McQueen, Olubemi Otulaja, James Rudolph, Sean Scott, Lennox Norville and Reitmayer were awesome on the line. Omar Walden had one big interception. The score at the end of the half was 40-6. Sixteen seconds into the third quarter Freeport's offense hit again. Reitmayer returned the kick to the 41yard line and then Leslie Jackman ran 59 yards on the next play to bring the score to 46-6. Following that play, most starters didn't see much more field action. Taylor Eason replaced Mills, who was 5 of 7 passing for 172 yards, as quarterback and the beat went on. Eason completed a 55-yard pass to Reitmayer and then ran the ball inside the 10 with a four-yard gain. It was Eason again on the carry for a 9-yard run. Kicker Adrian Palazzo was in fine form as he scored six extra points following Freeport's touchdowns. His kick offs went into the end zone most of the time and the officials told the chain persons to just set up on the 20 yard line. Coach Russ Cellan was proud of his entire team and has already begun preparation for the Farmingdale game. Although the Red Devils have already played Farmingdale, playoffs begin a new season for every team and no one

can let their guard down. Freeport wants the county title and is working hard to achieve that goal. The Girls Varsity Swim Team finished the season with an impressive third place finish in Conference III. Captain Gillian Shea was named to the All

SSA talk at chamber lunch by Bill and Norma Braun On Monday, November 10, the Freeport Chamber of Commerce held its November Luncheon Meeting at the Mermaid Restaurant, 379 Woodcleft Avenue, Freeport. Guest speaker was Paul Orlando, of the Freeport Office of the Social Security Administration. The thrust of his interesting talk was to "debunk" some of the "myths" about SSA and to

inform his audience about the recent changes in the programs, new ways to contact SSA, and how to prevent identity theft. "It is very important that the public have accurate information when it comes to making a decision about when to file a Retirement, Disability, Survivor, SSI or Medicare Claim," said Orlando, "and the goal of the SSA is to get accurate information about its programs to the public."

Among the chief concerns were claims that teachers have not been given sufficient training in the new rubrics, the lack of continuity and consistency among teachers in grading, the inappropriateness of this type of grading for daily class work and especially for objective items such as spelling and arithmetic computation. The broad range within, the four marking categories also distressed parents who said that it discourages children from attaining excellence and makes it harder to motivate them. "Everyone gets a three," said a parent in quoting her child. "How do we know where in a "3' they are?" Are they a borderline 3 close to a 4 or a 3 close to a 2?" Parents complimented Assistant Superintendent Jeffrey Hollman, who held a district-wide evening meeting on the new report cards last week but criticized the fact that there were no principals, teachers, other administrators or board members there. Parents were further incensed by the lack of meaningful follow-up affer that meeting, at which parents had expressed concerns and expected changes. Most particularly, parents were angry that the-students' first report card, scheduled to be distributed at parent/teacher conferences, would not contain any grades but consist of anecdotal comments. "That shows how ill-prepared you were to implement this." One parent asked if the new reporting process could be taken off the table, and "put on the back burner." "I don't know how it works, once you put the ball in motion, how do you take it out of motion? I think I would leave this meeting, and other people would leave this meeting more comfortable, if we thought you would stop this process, give the teachers more training, and go back to the old process." Responding to the many concerns, Superintendent Kathy Weiss explained that the new report card had been developed with input last year from a teachers' committee which had surveyed- report cards from many districts before developing their rubric of criteria for the four levels. She pointed out that teachers have had long experience in marking according to rubrics in various state-mandated standardized tests. Mr. Hollman added that "exemplars" were added to the teacher training so the staff could see examples of work that met criteria in the four levels. Further explanations of the process had taken place during the recent Staff Development Day on November 4. But parents pointed out, "From September 4, to November 4, is a long time...one whole marking period. No way were you ready to implement this." Apparently some teachers had gone back to rescore earlier testing. A parent added, "It changes every time you have another meeting." In guiding the public input, Mr. Scannell kept repeating, "We hear what you are saying; we are aware of your frustration; we are all taking notes." When asked when parents could expect a response, he replied, "You have clearly made the point that there's a piece that's not working, not clear, not communicated." He later added, "We have a lot of information to process." Refusing to promise a specific date or outcome, he said, "We try to be deliberate in our actions. Your specificity is very helpful; you have been incredibly helpful to us."

Although acknowledging that the board had received some sense of parent dissatisfaction with the new system at the September 29 Community Input meeting, Mr. Scannell explained," There was nothing of this level of anxiety that we were aware of." Summing up the parents' concerns, he added, "I can promise you that we know that something needs to be done. We have to figure out what to do next. We understand decisions have to be made. At this point in time I can't guarantee anything." Although parents left the meeting assured they had been heard, many said that they had expected answers and results at the board meeting, including a specific date for a response. Parents will also be forwarding to the board a lengthy petition of their concerns.

Other action In other action, the board received a report from Jill Pitcher of the accounting firm Coughlin, Foundotos, Cullen & Danowski, the district's independent auditors. Ms. Pitcher commended the district's financial records and internal audit system of checks and balances. She warned, however, of projected increases in the district's required contribution to state employee retirement and health plans next year, estimating two to seven percent increases in these costs. "As for state aid," she said, we don't know what that will be." Mr. Hollman presented an overview of Languages Other than English (LOTE) and the curriculum-, requirements, examinations, and enrichment aspects of the courses that were 'once simply dubbed "Foreign Language." Also explained were courses in the K-12 Limited English Proficiency program. In communicating to parents regarding this program, Mr. Hollman said the letters sent were in 13 different languages although Spanish -was the most common. Dr. Weiss presented an overview of items that had been mentioned for'jnclusion in a possible bond issue tentatively scheduled for February. At the September board meeting, the firm H2M explained a comprehensive outline of all of the district's capital improvement needs projected for a 10 to 15 year period. Dr. Weiss juxtaposed those recommendations alongside the district's amendments which were labeled "Must Do" and "Should Consider." In some cases, items were eliminated and deemed more appropriate for an annual budget. In other cases the improvements were scaled down. Rental of high school auditorium sound equipment was deemed more appropriate than an actual physical overhaul. A better study of the high school cafeteria was suggested."We know we need newer and better equipment but we have to study it." Also refined were recommendations regarding telephones, the public address (PA) system, irrigation of fields and other outdoor enhancements. The board will hold a special meeting on Wednesday, December 3, at 8 p.m. at the District Office for the sole purpose of discussing and hearing public input on the bond proposal. It is expected that the board will vote on the proposal at its regular monthly meeting on December 10, at 8 p.m. at Lenox School. By law, a bond issue must be announced to the public and can only occur if the public approves the expenditures at a public referendum which at this moment is tentatively expected to be scheduled sometime in February, 2004. H2M's original presentation projected the bond issue to be almost $29 million.

Mayor joins statewide effort to cap state pension contributions Freeport Mayor Bill Glacken joined other village and city mayors and municipal officials at a news conference in White Plains, New York, last week to call on State Comptroller Alan Hevesi to reduce the dollar amount the state is seeking in local.governments' contributions to the state's pension fund. Freeport, along with all the other villages and government entities throughout New York State, has been advised by the comptroller's office to budget for a major increase in its contribution to the state's pension fund in its next year's budget. Freeport's projected contribution for the 2004/2005 budget is approximately 12% of the civilian payroll and 17% of the police payroll. The village's state pension fund contribution in 2002 was approximately $1 million. In December of 2003, it is $2,396,185, and in December 2004, it is scheduled to be $4,233,451. That figure represents a 323% increase over a two-year period.

"The amount the Comptroller is requesting from the local governments, including school districts, libraries, villages, cities, towns and counties," explained Mayor Glacken, "is unconscionable, and will put an enormous financial burden on these entities." During a statewide teleconference held on September 9, Comptroller Hevesi stated that as of that date, the pension fund was 93% funded and had a value of $106 billion. That means the fund will be 100% funded once it reaches a value of $113.9 billion. "Comptroller Hevesi also indicated during that teleconference that between January 1, 2003, the date he took office, and September 9, the value of the fund had grown from $99 billion to $106 billion, in barely 8 months," explained Mayor Glacken. "Therefore, I challenge the need for such a drastic increase in contributions within a single fiscal year. The fund seems to be restoring itself, and

will do so over time if we remain patient." Mayor Glacken, along with the other officials, called on Comptroller Hevesi to reconsider the current contribution requirements on the municipalities. "We
