Vows to fight decommission of old diesels by November 30. by Laura Schofer

den of proof rests with the .DEC," said Mayor Glacken. "It failed to demonstrate how keeping the diesels operable but inactive would harm the environment:" , But a rebuttal provided to the DEC by NYPIRG and Old Lindnemere Civic Association states that "Residents of the area have suffered for years. They deserve the protections afforded by the Clean Air Act. Federal emission regulations and permitting standards are minimum requirements of the permit. In this permitting action, DEC is not allowed to violate the mandates of the Clean Air Act, state Environmental Conservation Law, state and federal regulation and the

nificant financial risks and penalties to the village ratepayers, even if the diesels are not actually operated," said Hubert Bianco, Superintendent of . Freeport Electric in. the October 7 press.release. The Leader was told that there will be an immediate 22 percent increase to rate payers; an increase on top of the already 24% increase ratepayers recently received. The reason for this has to do with requirements that Freeport Electric be able to provide 93% of its peak load capacity through on Island generation. At present that peak load is 60 megawatts. At present the village is buying five megawatts of power over the 56 megawatts of power the village can pro-

Although progress continues on the turbine generator project at Power Plant 2, Freeport Electric continues its fight to keep the diesels operable beyond the shutdown : date of November 30. The Leader previously reported that the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation's (DEC) Commissioner Erin Crotty received a recommendation by Administrative Law Judge Molly McBride on September 29 to permanently shut down the diesel generators at Freeport's Power Plant 2 by November 30. The decision came in an administrative permit challenge brought by the Village of Freeport to oppose a new draft air permit requiring shutdown of the diesels. Freeport, along with the other parties involved in the hearing, had the opportunity to submit written comments by October 14. The interested parties include the DEC and the New York Interest Research Group (NYPRG) along with the Old Lindemere Civic Association. The Village took exception to the recommended decision contending that PP2 should not be decommissioned before the new LM 6000 turbine is operational. The village believes that it has undertaken the LM 6000 project specifically to replace the old diesels and have agreed to the new permit conditions for particulate and NOx emissions.

The General Electric LM-6000 components were off-loaded from the barge to flatbed trucks and delivered to Power Plant 2. The site for the new 47-megawatt turbines is being prepared with separate concrete foundations designed to hold each of the two 90-ton generators. The water piping, electric conduits and cables will be installed next. Freeport's new generator is expected to be in operation by Spring of 2004. The village's electric utility will own and operate one of the planned turbines, which will provide up to 37 megawatts of power to village customers and sell 10 megawatts of power to LIPA for use by Long Island residents for a guaranteed 30 years. The second 47-megawatt generator will be owned and operated by an independent'developer, Equus Power I", LP, which is in negotiations to provide electricity to LIPA customers. The second generator is expected to go online by June 2004. The village will act as the State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Lead Agency. A public hearing was held on October 22. Notice of the hearing was posted in the Environmental Notice Bulletin and in Newsday on September 25. For information about this hearing contact Christopher Hogan at DEC Headquarters (518) 402-9167.

Freeport Schools show highly improved math scores 60 percent increase in performance within one year. "Not many school districts in New York state have shown that much improvement," Mn Harris said. • _.' '•. '

by Jim Golding

School district officials reported last week on the great improvement in <u state, mathematics assessment scores o Z for grades 4 and 8, as also reported in the October 30 Leader. Executive Director for Curriculum Robert Harris gave a school-byH school breakdown in his presentation of the district's math scores at the October 29 school board meeting, Q showing upward trends for levels 3 < and 4 over the past four years. Levels 3 and 4 indicate those students meeting or exceeding state standards in the assessment tests. Superintendent Dr. Eric Eversley praised the district's faculty and staff for its "great instructional work" and emphasized the district is "continuing to improve its core programs." He added, "We still have a substantial amount of'work-to do and we will continue doing that," Mr. Harris cited the efforts 'of the academic faculty and teaching assistants, the tutorial program, the homework club and computer clubs, small group instruction, holiday recess packets with additional skill work, intensive test preparations, instructional improvement plans and professional development of teachers as prime factors in the improved performances.

A new Veterans Day tradition by John Brieden National Commander, American Legion We all know that November 11 is Veterans Day. We know that Veterans Day pays tribute to men and women who sacrificed for freedom in the U.S. armed forces. We know that democracy flourishes the world over because of the sacrifice of America's veterans. We know that Veterans-Day originates from the 1 Hh hour of the 11 th day of the 11 th month in 1918 when World War I ended. Our nation praises its veterans with a holiday, wjth the construction-of moving memorials,, and with a solemn final tribute: placement ,upo.n their coffins of a U.S. Flag. Our state and federal gov'--' ernments set'aside, pristine expanses of hallowed ground in'which America's veterans rest in eternal peace. Yet, as pro-veteran as the United Stales of America is, there are aspects of the relationship between our grateful nation and its veterans that most Americans probably do not know. Did you know that since the Berlin Wall was dismantled, signaling America's victory in the Cold War, the U.S. armed forces have experienced a one-third cut in the active-duty force and a 300 percent increase in deployments? The growing mismatch between deployments and the total force has resulted in the repeated longterm deployment of National Guard units, precluding them from performing homeland-security duties and other functions for which the nation's governors might need them. Did you know that on a given night, about a quarter-million veterans are homeless: lacking .both permanent shelter and hope? Onethird of adult homeless men and rtearly one-quarter of all homeless adults are veterans. Clearly, programs must be strengthened that provide medical, rehabilitative and employment assistance to those who served. Did you know that thousands of Guard and Reserve personnel are counting on the enactment of legislation that will provide them health insurance to replace the employer-paid coverage that their families lost when they were called up for months - in many cases for more than a year - to fight, the war on terror? What does all of this mean? It means the time has come to introduce a new Veterans Day tradition to the existing one. Be a part of the Veterans Day commemorative events in your area. Take your children, if possible. Your presence says "thank you for your service" to veterans and to their families. These events are a part of our nation's existing annual holiday tradition. Further, if you appreciate the sacrifices of those who stood, and those who still stand, in harm's way, then please consider starting another holiday tradition. This new tradition boils down to two simple civic duties: Save this column until next year's election campaign. Insist.the candidates address, indeed embrace1, the policies that you know in your heart are right and just. We know that freedom isn't free. We know that our elected leaders in Congress will do the right thing for America's veterans -and will pass just about any other law - if the American people really want it. We know in our hearts that the selfless sacrifice that liberates the oppressed and protects our shores deserves to be justly compensated. We know that our nation owes its veterans a square deal, and that this is a cause worthy of the passion and energy of a grateful and free people, not only on Veterans Day but every dayf

just \A/rite byjoan dolonoy HOLIDAY TIME ... Department stores have long been decorated and mail-order businesses have already sent out scores of catalogues. Most of us, however, don't really start thinking seriously about the holidays u n t i l Halloween is over. Now is the time. Again, thi.s year"we would like to encourage our readers to include giftgiving to local charities as part of their family's holiday plans. In recent years, local non-profit groups have been asked to do more than ever before in assisting the needy. Many families are finding it difficult to make ends meet in a regional economy whose costs are so high. There was a time when the term "affordable housing" was anathema to politicians. There was a sense that "if we build it they will come," and most people didn't want-"them" to come. Now we have discovered thai the "they" are our own children and parents who are finding it impossible to secure appropriate affordable housing. Statistics have shown that on Long Island, a person would have to hold five full time minimum wage jobs to pay the fair market

rental on a two bedroom apartment and stay w i t h i n (he 30 percent of total income that is suggested for housing costs. The salaries of most beginning professionals - teachers, nurses, firefighters, police - are not sufficient for them to pay for a rental apartment' on. their own, much less to purchase!-a house. In many families both parents must work to make ends meet creating an impact on schools and other institutions which must provide additional services. Too late have we discovered that our views concerning affordable housing were short-sighted and incorrect. Only recently are politicians finally realizing the importance of building affordable housing. But that process is extremely slow and there are many people who are crushed simply by the cost of providing shelter for their families. For most of the needy in our area, the cost of housing is out of proportion to their incomes. For that reason, many non-profit groups, yearround, 'provide food, -second-hand' clothing and I'urnitUre-to.assist .families;.* Still other groups provide meals, and'

just as importantly, a clean, pleasant place for people, especially the elderly, to eat and socialize. Many people would lack basic nutrition without those meals. Now during the Thanksgiving, Chanukkah and Christmas holiday season,'gift-giving has been added to the agenda,of many organizations. Most Long Islanders are a very charitable people. Now we should be committed to finding a charity to assist whose work reflects our interests, concerns and priorities. Donations should he sent promptly so these groups can properly assess the resources they will have to distribute. Check out local groups that help those in need. The Salvation Army, the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, out : reach programs of various religious institutions, the Interfailh Nutrition Network (INN), and programs associated with many civic groups all have reputable records, with low administrative costs and a high percentage of direct aid. ', _ • •. i • • r ' . \ Many (jf.'us in'the suburbs work Jiard . . to'proVide'for our children who enjoy an abundance of material gifts. Perhaps the

greatest gift we can give our children is to help them be aware of their obligation to be concerned citizens who care for others. We will have done our job well if our children become adults who participate in the creation of a just society. There are some gifts that we can enjoy as individuals. There are others, however, that can only be enjoyed if everyone enjoys them. Public safety is. for all or for none; a clean environment is for all or for none; a just society is for all or for none. As we go about the hectic pace of holiday shopping, we urge our readers to sit down as a family to discuss and commit to some meaningful charitable giving. And we also encourage people, during the rest of the year, to be fair-minded as they express their priorities to elected officials. It is at the governmental level that programs and legislation can be established that will level the playing field and alleviate some of the causes of poverty that impact not/only the poor but our communities'and ourselves.

Baldwin parents pose questions by Joan Delaney Parents posed a wide variety of questions at the Baldwin School District's first community input meeting of the 2003-4 school year. Last week's meeting began with a preview of the Baldwin High School musical "Joseph and his Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" and was followed with presentations to the Board of Education as part of the district's celebration, of School Board Recognition Week. The theme of the accolades was one of thanks to the board for making school "a home away from home." Board President James Scannell- noted that" It is a privilege to be.part of a caring team of parents, administration, teachers and students." Many questions focused on the new elementary level report card which will now follow the one to four pattern used

by the stale and many neighboring districts. According to Superintendent Kathy Weiss, the marking system is based on rubrics which establish standards. As in the slate's standardized testing, levels three and four meet or exceed required standards with the lower grades below or significantly below standards. The report card allows teachers to comment on 10-15 items within categories whereas the previous card only provided information on six to seven items. According to one parent, however, there was confusion on the part of some teachers regarding the new grading system. Dr.Weiss agreed, noting that the November parent/teacher conferences will include explanations of the new report card and then anecdotal comments on a child's achievements. One parent said that the new system

should be explained to the children. "My son came home and said he got an eight. I told him the highest number was four, hut he said, 'I got a three, a three, and a two, and that's an eight. But I could have gotten a twelve.' " Dr. Weiss noted, "Well we know he can add." Several questions centered on overcrowding in some bujldings and the possibility of redistricting. Mr. Scarinalj explained that school districts "cannot just change boundaries a little bit." He noted,"We monitor the situlion and the question has come up from time to time." He added. "There's no provision in the law lo shift boundaries a little bit. If we changed boundaries, each and every school would have to reflect the diversity of the district as a whole. And redislricling would be a huge undertaking and cause huge turmoil." In further discussion on class size and

space needs, both Dr. Weiss and Mr. Scannell indicated that the attendance increase is less than one percent and growing slower, than previously. Mr. Scannell said. "We built the new sixth grade wing, presuming the worst case scenario" in terms of population increase. Responding to why (he Hastings Street District Office was not returned as an instructional facility. Board member Mary 'Jo O'Hagan' described the history of the change of that building to a district office. She said that the site no longer meets new stale guidelines, noting that the fields are now; inadequate for school use.

Randy Mills - Pride of the Red by Josh Casper Football scouts perpetually adhere to the oil-used adage that there are no substitutes for stature and si/.e. While that is valid, a duly cardinal component .of.athletic quintessence - while equally innate - is fortitude and confidence. He stands just 5' 11 and under 200 pounds. However, Senior Quarterback Randy Mills has risen to the forefront, leading the 7-0 Freeport Red Devils atop Ihe Long Island High School Football . rankings. , This season, Freeport has gone undefeated, with IN/I.iNs leading the way. After throwing for ;\f2!)0 yards and 18 touchdowns last year,.Mills has stepped his game up to yet another level, as the undefeated Red Devils have oulscored opponents 282-6. Mills, a senior, has been nothing short ol spectacular, leading Long Island with 12 touchdown passes, and has run for another four, exemplifying why he may be this year's favorite to capture the coveted Thorp Trophy, given to the best

High School football player in Nassau County. "[Winning the Thorp' Award], that's in the back of my mind. Winning the Long Island championship comes first." says Mills. Many experts think that Mills-lead Frecporl — unequivocally the most dominant offense'in 2003'-- -'has'be'guiv'lo forge its place -among the best offences in Long Island's" historical 1 foot'hall annals. "He's a great decision maker:" remarks Freeporl Head Coach Russ Cellan, whose teams have won two Rutgers Cups (given to the top football team on Long Island) during1 his tenure ('97/01')' "He's run 'this offense Tor three years, and not afraid to''lake

chances but he's not reckless. He takes good chances if there is such a thing." He adds. "He runs this offense with a lot of confidence, a difficult offense to run, and he has a lot of confidence doing it. If Ihe1 people behind can sense confi'dertce/they'in turn have confidence."- • • '"I ilon't-c'a're if>he's.<7 feel tall or. the 5' 11" that he is, Randy is as good of a Quarterback as-|Freeport| has'ever had," Cellen remarks. "Randy is not the fastest guy - he has good speed, but he works at it - he's a great student of the game, he puts a lot of time into making himself heller. He puts (he time in - he .wasn't 'born a great, quarterback; he worked at it. ;: . •;

Mills does lack (he physicality and height of a prototypical quarterback, but that has never stood in the way of his ability to succeed against the toughest D. competition in pressure situations." I bring intensity and headship and the 2 o team; follows behind that," Mills says < n> "Thai makes.for a.good chemistry." , Mills' fir,st start came in the Freeport's 2001 regular season finale, in the Red Devils 17-6 win over Farmingdale as • Mills went 11-17 for 84 yards. Two 8 weeks later he threw' for 153 yards OJ against the Dalers again, as he helped H lead the Red Devils to the,classjl title m and the Rutgers,Cup. . . ,.,:, , tn -" ' (continued on page 15)

First Precinct hosts community meeting by Nancy Bukauskas The Frist Precinct held its second public meeting on October 29 at the Rose Boulevard Fire House in Baldwin. Inspector Patrick O'Connor addressed the audience of residents and elected officials, providing them with an overview of the precinct and the various problems" it, tackles. Baldwin is the largest of the communities (hat arc served by the First Precinct. Others include Bellmore, North Bellmorc, Merrick, North Merrick,' East Meadow. Roosevelt. Uniondale, South Hempslcad and a small portion of Wanlagh. Commanding Officer O'Connor distributed an information packet entitled "Street Gang Awareness," a guide for parents and educators thai emphasi/.es a police-school-coinmunily partnership in lighting what he deemed, "an insidious threat to our children and to the comunity at large." It includes common reasons for joining a gang, indicators of a gang presence, indicators of gang membership, consequences of gang membership, and, how lo discourage your child from joining a gang. A copy can be obtained by calling the First Precincl Special Patrols Office at 573-6 1 50. Inspector O'Connor discussed the ongoing work of the Task Force Against Gangs, an clement of the Community Response Team. He reported 133 arrests thus far this year, the majority in Baldwin Park, and others al the Baldwin Boat Ramp, Cow Meadow Park, Coes Neck Park, and Baldwin High School. The Inspector reported that robberies in the First Precinct were down this year as compared, lo last year. Assaults, however, were up, partially driven by domestic violence, he said. Mr. O'Connor said the number of cars stolen has increased this year, and he fell this was in direcl proporlion to bad weather. He pointed out that in inclement weather people tend to leave their cars running while they get ready to leave the house, or when Ihey make a quick stop, such as. for coffee. He cautioned, "never leave a running vehicle unallended!" He also advised residenls nol lo leave' anything of value in their cars. Even items like cell phones, if visible Ihrough the window of a locked auto, might prompl someone to.break into Ih'e vehicle.

Inspector O'Connor advised women to he careful when they are shopping in a supermarket, noting that often, a pursesnatcher will target a woman who sits her purse in the shopping carl. While she is engrossed in lahel-reading, or selecting items from the shelf, her purse can he • grahh'ed without her.reali/.ing it. . Grand larcpnies were,up ihjs.year, he reported, as were 'burglaries. He added that the number of arrests for burglaries was up considerably. "If you see anything suspicious, call us." said Mr. O'Connor. "Do not hesitate to call 911." He made the point that 911 is for all calls to the police, even nonemergency calls. When reporting something suspicious, he urged including information that describes the person involved, the type of car they used, whether or not weapons were involved, as well as any other information that could aid the police when they respond. A noteworthy program for youths aged 14 to 20 was outlined by police officer Dan Johannessen. The Explorer Program, affiliated with the Boy Scouls, introduces girls and boys to different aspects of law enforcement and provides

them with activities that serve the community. Among the special activities planned are a weekend getaway, and participation in a forensics competition. The Explorer Program participants meet twice a month, in the evening. For those who might be interested in joining, their next meeting will be held on November 13- at 7:30 p:m. at Baldwin Fire Department Hose Company No. 3 on Baldwin Avenue. Further information can be obtained by contacting Officer Dan Johannessen at 573-6170. In an effort to make our roaYls safer, Inspector O'Connor said the precinct is addressing aggressive driving, speeding, drivers ignoring red lights and stop signs, failures to stop for a school bus. the use of.cell phones while driving, and failure to wear a sealbelt. A plan to reduce the number of accidents involved determining the locations where the most accidents occur, or where drivers are most often violating traffic laws, and putting officers in these areas to write summons. He reported that nearly 1.500 summons have been written in the 122 areas being studied. • • ' • Also outlined was a push to decrease

illegal . drug use in the precinct. Mr. O'Connor said that drug enforcement details would periodically target an area and "sweep" it of drug activity. Recently Roosevelt was the location, of such a sweep, and many arrests and confiscations were made. Questions from the audience focused on requests for speed limit reductions near specific schools, and Mr. O'Connor explained that speed limits were set by the legislature, not the police department. Legislator Kevan Abrahams offered to look into requests to lower the speed limit near the Smith Street School and Ulysses Byas School, as well as on Nassau Road. A resident asked whether school grounds were patrolled at night, and Inspector O'Connor replied that they were patrolled on a regular basis, and that if police were notified about a specific situation, patrols would be increased. The next First Precinct public meeting will be held sometime in January, according to precinct representatives. Residents will be notified through their local newspapers and civic associations about the date, time and location

sporting devils by Linda Hendrickson Most teams wot-k together to learn offensive and defensive plays, improve their skills, and condition a few weeks in the offseason to prepare for competition. For many schools that is sufficient. Freeport's football team has taken (lie concept ol^teamwork beyond that level. The goal of this year's team members is/to win both the Nassau and-,Long Island Championships. . To achieve this goal, players worked out in the weight room and pool all summer. They eat together on •Friday nights in the school cafeteria. Various people bring an assortment of food and they mentally prepare for the next game while viewing tapes of their opponents. The team enters the field in line formation! huddle before the start of the game, rhythmically slap knees before kickoffs, walk in double line formation to the end /.one at the completion of each game, kneel in a circle to reflect on the contest with the coaches, and enjoy a light meal (hot dogs and soda or London broil and salad) provided by the Sports Boosters Club or parents in the school cafeteria or on the back steps. Doing these things creates a football family that will go the extra mile for their teammates. Fans see a well-disciplined and finetuned defense that does not have a single super star. Fourteen defensive players made key tackles or assists in Saturday's 49-0 win over the Hicksville Comets. Stanley Gutlierez led the team with nine, while Olugbemi Otulaja and Adam Woodmansee each added five. Kyle Greenwood, James Rudolph. Mike McQueen, Lenox Norville, Omar Walden.

Rodriguez, and Hcaly both scored on runs in the first quarter while Anthony Rodriguez scored on two punt returns. Also scoring for Freeport were

Michael Ngernnak, Leslie Jackman and Bobby Hogan combined for 22 tackles. It is a hard-hitting group that " works as a lough unit. They have not had a touchdown sewed on them all season. The offense got off to a quick start when Reilmayr scored on a 29-yard punt return with only 2:23 off the clock. Jackman's sack on the punterand Freeport's recovery put the offense right back in business. Two plays later Randy Mills completed a touchdown pass to Reilmayr for another TD. Adrian Palazzo was awesome once again and kicked 7 extra points for the Red Devils. Gutliere/ intercepted a ball on the 29-yard line and returned it for a TD; Norville ran the ball in from the 35-yard line for a TD, Taylor Fason scored on a quarterback sneak, etc. The defense held Hicksville to 127 yards of total offense. Mills was 4-7 which added 114 yards to the Red Devils game and two TDs. Freeport is 7-0 on the season and plays Syosset on Saturday. Victor Rodriguez scored five TDs as the .IV Red Devils football team defeated Uniondale 32-6. John Healy scored on a run and Jarrall Penn scored on a completed pass. A 42-0 shutout of the Hicksville Comets proved to he a very lopsided game.

Police. The cost of retrofitting the building plus the cost of relocating those facilities to another site in the community would be excessive. Plus. Mr. Seanneil noted. "We have not seen the kind of dramatic growth you are describing." Another question focused on /.ero tolerance issues. While there is no district policy with that specific terminology. Dr. Weiss did say that police are called in certain circumstances. When asked who is called first, police or parents, she noted that parents are called first "unless we think we need assistance." Dr. Weiss noted, however, that very often parents cannot be reached and the district-won't wait before also calling . police. Describing the process followed, she said that in the case of weapons, a child is suspended and a superintendent's hearing follows. In the case of drug dealing, the police are called. She stressed. "We don't want kids questioned by police without a parent present." but added. "If the police come with a warrani, we can't stop them." Other questions included the perennial concern of splitting classes, with Mr. Seannell stressing that fairness requires that the district follow the class si/e policy so that all schools are treated in a manner that is "reasonable, consistent and equitable." Mr. Seannell briefly explained the background of an expected $29 million facilities bond issue that has been discussed al two previous board meetings. There will be continued discussion'at the November and December hoard meetings as well, as several special

meetings' preceding an anticipated February referendum. H One parent applauded published com- O" e ments of Athletic Director Tom Howard -i ~j~. who said. "The buck slops here." regard- o. '^ ing the ineligibility of a high school football player which caused the team to Z o < have to forfeit lour of their previously n> won games. cr Other questions focused on (he need re for a crossing guard on Schreiber Place. ON A parent is gathering signatures for a lv> o petition and the district has asked the o '_/J First Precincl to conduct another survey. H A parent questioned why some ffi schools will not allow students in m kindergarten, grades one and two to r m wear Halloween costumes. Dr. Weiss > said. "Because of (he religious diversity in the schools, some students would not be able to attend school if costumes were worn. We hope you understand the rationale." Regarding gang prevention awareness. Dr. Weiss described programs at all three levels which focus on making correct choices and not bullying. Former gang members have spoken al the high school as well. In a new initiative, the board will hold a public work session on November 5. to discuss and hear presentations on various academic mailers. There will be no voting and no public input. The next regular meeting is Wednesday. November 12. al 8 p.m. at Sleele School. The high school musical is scheduled for Thursday. November 20 al 4 p.m. ($5) and Friday and Saturday. November 21 and "22. al 8 p.m. ($8). Tickets are on sale during lunchlimc in the high school commons.

Randy Mills from page 7 "He has always been kind of a confident guy. He's gotten belter, but what he had from beginning was his confidence." C'ellen articulates. "His leadership quality and confidence - those are the things he's had from day one. He has gotten mechanically heller and worked to get himself faster and stronger, but the qualities that make a good quarterhack he always had." "He works very hard (at being a good QB). Last season Mills and the Freeporl Red Devils were silling atop Nassau County Conference I. primed for their third consecutive trip to the Conference I Championship, with a 7-0 record going into week 8. For Mills, then a junior, it was not to be. Freeport dropped their final two games, first falling to Farmingdale 27-7 in week 8. costing them the # I seed in the playoffs. Despite "MSG Player of the Week " earlier during the regular season against Baldwin, Mills and the Red Devils were only able to muster 13 points in a one point loss to the decidedly underdog Bruins in the Semifinals, ending (heir season. "They were hard losses on the team, two back to back, one al the end of the season and one in the playoffs, left a bad taste in our mouths. Losing those two games last year was not a good feeling." Mills mused. He added: "Revenge was on my mind. The experience made me menially lough, made me stronger, made me work harder. Tested early on. Mills exacted a modicum of revenge against both of last year's foes leading Freeport to consecutive victories over Baldwin and Farmingdale in back-lo-baek weeks. On September 26. in a 35-0 win against

I he Bruins. Mills completed 6 - 1 1 passes for 101 yards, and ran for 73 more, scoring twice on the ground and hilling on a 44-yard air strike. The following week Freeporl faced the Farmingdale Dalers. who like themselves had not given up a point in (wo games. Mills turned in a dynamic performance, going 1 1 - 1 6 for 296 yards and five TDs (4 pass. I rush), as Freeporl dominated their way lo 42-0 victory against their perennial rivals. "Those are two of the belter teams in our conference. We played very well. I was actually surprised about how well we played. The guys worked very hard in the off-season lo gel lo this point, and nothing they do now will surprise me." Despile Mills' football triumphs. Mills' athletic future may be as a lacrosse player. Mills, en route to making All-County lacrosse as a junior, had three four goal games, says lie is looking to play Division I lacrosse in college, but also hopes to play football. While at shy of six feel he may lack the si/.e that many Division I coaches look for. Mills has received inquiries from many upperechelon schools al all levels. Mills pays little mind to quantitative visceral attributes, instead choosing to give credence to the nuances of gamesmanship: "You have to have Ihe basics and do (he little things to be a great quarterback." Says Mills. "A guy is 6'5" they may have all the si/e hut the question is if they have the heart and the mental capacity for the position." Mills certainly has indoctrinated his precept throughout Nassau County, citing opposing defenses for empirical evidence.

Face Pain?

If you've been living with face pain, you may be suffering from trigeminal neuralgia. The gamma knife, which is not a knife at all, can help end your suffering.

Trigeminal neuralgia is characterized by sudden bursts of extreme pain, usually on one side of the face. It can be triggered by as little as a light touch, or simple, everyday activities such as talking, eating or brushing your teeth. The revolutionary gamma knife is a minimally invasive, powerful radiosurgery tool that permits neurosurgeons to operate deep within the brain, without cutting and without the .risk of infection or bleeding. The gamma knife;is extremely safe and highly effective. Best of all, many patients can even leave the hospital the same day as their treatment. Don't suffer any longer. Call the Long Island Gamma Knife® Center at South Nassau Communities Hospital today at 1-866-LI-Gamma. Learn how the gamma knife can remove the pain of trigeminal neuralgia and let you get back into life. -
