MISTRESS OF CEREMONIES Florence Bell, copresident of the Black Educators' Committee of Freeport and a teacher at Freeport High School, introduced the many performances of students from throughout the district at the recent Black History Program.

Performers from kindergartners to high school seniors, plus faculty and members of the community too, came together to celebrate "Solidarity" in recognition of Black History Month. The program, held at Bay view Avenue School on a recent Sunday, was sponsored by the Black Educators' Committee of Freeport. Co-presidents of the Committee, Freeport High School teacher Florence Bell arid librarian Carol Gilliam, welcomed a crowd of parents and community members to the rousing event that honored the accomplishments of famous African-Americans, and demonstrated the poetic and musical accomplishments of FreeportersJ In addition to students, performers included members of the Dance Arts Repertory, the Operation Pride Gospel Group, and piano accompanist .Date .Qpatow,, -director of the Freeport Memorial Library, ' ;, ' , Displaying photos 'of; famous Black Americans, Columbus Avenue $»cibp^ kinfe'gartners sang "We Appreciate You/^coiki^lete with' choreographed moves, •PerfQrmances-j'liijjf; .children who attend Freeport's magnet 'scfiodis, -include^ poetry readings folk songs and .ihs^urn^nta'i solos.

Baldwin students try on careers CM

<U

Baldwin Senior High School students stepped out of the classroom and into the real world of work on February 2, during Teens on the Job 104: Long Island Groundhog Shadow Day. Over 60 sophomores were paired to shadow mentors in a wide range of professions from corporate law to catering. Baldwin students traveled as far as the Medford Kidney Center to shadow a l£ dietician and as close by as the Little >i Rainbow Day Care Center in Baldwin to help care for young children. Additionally, 59 volunteer mentors from the Baldwin School District and area businesses hosted 25 student pairs from other high schools in Nassau and § Suffolk Counties. Teens on the Job was established by w the Mentoring Partnership of Long Island ten years ago; this is the ninth year that the Baldwin School District

has participated in the program. The Baldwin School District carefully prepares participants with an informational assembly and guides students in writing letters of introduction to their mentors as well as follow-up thank you notes. , District personnel instrumental in keeping the program running each year are: Pat Banhazl, school-to-career coordinator; Rich Miskiewicz, Assistant Principal; Mike Roccoforte, Assistant Superintendent for Technology, Curriculum, and Instruction; and teachers Margaret Hill at Baldwin Senior High School, Pat Sherman at Baldwin Middle School, and Joanne Mueller at Meadow School. Ms. Banhazl said, "It is very important for students to have an opportunity to experience what it is like to work in a field they are interested in pursuing."

A pilot's eye view of our town Most of the time we view our towns from less than a few yards off the ground, but every once in a while we get.a.higher, view.* ' , ' • •= Have'you seen1 the 'photos bf our, world taken from ''spa^e'by'NA'SlAi'at'hlglit? All the developed areas', including our ^own) Long Island, are lit-up while the developing, world,.mo^t of it, is dark/Yet'we all have to get along for the sake of the future of this planet. On a cross-country airplane trip, you notice how much of this continent is also uninhabited. Whole mountain ranges, whole deserts are wild. By comparison Long Island is positively claustrophobic. Circling out over the ocean on the way in to land, you get a new perspective on your own town. You see the beaches we all enjoy, and the marshes and bays between them and our local towns. Their fragile environment is important to all of us. The water towers stick out above the landscape, the ones we rely on just as we are tied to the high tension electric towers we see along the railroad and highways that connect us to the metropolitan area. From the air, the whole system seems so vulnerable. We usually take it for granted. Most of our towns look like a forest of trees, even though from the ground you might never think so, especially the way so many homeowners seem to be cutting theirs down. But from above, you can see they really must help protect our homes from wind and sun. Perhaps most striking is the way the towns near the Meadowbrook and Wantagh Parkways seem to flow together. They have more in common than not, when seen from above. Yet to many residents each hometown has its distinct personality, owing most likely to the people that make our schools, houses of worship, civic and business groups work. You cannot see these people from a commercial airplane making its way to a landing, but they are the most important reason for coming back. They are what makes a hometown.

REVIEWING OLD PLAYBILLS ...My mother was an avid theater-goer and cherished her playbills, the theater programs she collected during 50 years of attending Broadway productions. Just recently, I reviewed those Playbills in preparation for donating some of them to a regional theater in Connecticut to which my husband and I have long had a subscription. Our family wanted them preserved in a safe, appreciative setting. Goodspeed Musicals, located in East Haddam overlooking the Connecticut River, pioneered the practice of "rethinking, restoring and revitalizing America's musical theatre heritage." Although several Broadway shows like "Man of La Mancha," "Annie," and "Shenandoah" originated there, Goodspeed is more likely to produce revivals including those with little chance of once again reaching Broadway. For the subscription theatergoer, many of these productions provide an education in the development of musical theater. Two decades'of my mom's Playbills - from 1931 to the mid 50s - were of particular interest to me. It has been said that journalism is the first draft of history but journalists are well-aware that they are historical witnesses. Playbills, in a less intended way, however are just as much a reflection of history. Each playbill could provide material for numerous classes by a wide assortment of professional educators on many aspects of American life and culture. Most importantly, of course, these Playbills reflect theatrical history for they document the details of productions that starred some of the greatest actors and actresses in show business. The grande dames are all there - Helen Hayes, Judith Anderson, Katherine Hepburn, Eva Le Gallienne, Katharine Cornell, Ethel Barrymore, and Gertrude Lawrence as well as singers Ethel Merman and Mary Martin. The Lunts - Lynn Fontanne and Alfred Lunt - perhaps theater's most reknowned couple, dazzled audiences

in "The Taming of the Shrew" (1935), "Idiot's Delight" (1936) and "I Know My Love" (1950). There were fabulous leading men - Laurence Olivier, Noel Coward, Walter Houston, Rex Harrison and a relatively inexperienced Vincent Price (long-before his horror movies). He was originally selected to play the role of Prince Albert in "Victoria Regina" in London and later in New York opposite Helen Hayes because he so physically resembled Victoria's actual Prince Consort. Bob Hope became a star in "Roberta" in 1934 where his Playbill biography begins -with his early credentials as a prize fighter. Perhaps one of the most avant garde plays of these decades was "The Women" (1937), written by Clare Booth, prior to her political career or marriage to Henry Luce. The play was advertised as having a cast of 40 women. But if there is a wealth of theatrical material, the Playbills also provide many other views of American life during these diverse and sometimes turbu- • lent times. Advertising shows that even then a lot of money was focused on .selling numerous brands of cigarettes. Almost every issue contained ads for Camel and Lucky Strike cigarettes, and we see the beginnings of celebrity endorsements. Judith Anderson, later Dame Judith Anderson, advocates Lucky Strike because "they never irritate my throat." Camel cigarettes are said to be good "for digestion's sake." Other cigarettes included Chesterfield, Old Gold, Viceroy, and something called Spud. Ads show that the first luxury residential apartments developed by Tishman Brothers ("owners and builders since 1898") in the high society area of Park Avenue and 57th Street ranged "in size from three to 13 rooms. There were advertisements for the new Tudor City apartments which could be rented with or without tasteful furnishings. Advertising for Atlantic City hotels

show per diem prices of $6 with meals or $3 without meals. Later, as the Depression kicks in, those prices would decrease. There was a wide variety of supper clubs and restaurants including the Cotton Club in Harlem with shows that starred Duke Ellington, Cab Galloway or Bill Robinson. Rudy Vallee performed at the Paradise Cabaret Restaurant. At the Central Park Casino, the Eddie Diichin Orchestra played while Guy Lombardo conducted at the Roosevelt Grill. Night life was busy with restaurants, cafes, casinos, follies and cabarets and-they all advertised - the Coconut Grove, the Empire Room, Longchamps, Reubens, the Viennese Roof of the St. Regis, the Savoy Plaza, Jack Dempsey's, the Rainbow Room and the St. Moritz. One could even see Sally Rand performing her famous fan dance. Surprising were the many lingerie ads for women, pretty graphic for the times, that promised a reconstructed figure that could be attained with the help of uplifting new sewing designs rather than uncomfortable metal stays. Cars with "no draft ventilation" were new. Pontiacs sold for $990 in 1939, billed as $120 less than the year before, while Buicks ranged in cost from $745 to $1845. Perfume and liquor ads were plentiful. Arrow Shirts had clever cartoon ads, always on page three, throughout the two decades. This company understood the modern concept of branding and keeping the corporate name front and center in the public's eye. The Corn Exchange Bank ad always included a listing of its assets which, over the years, ranged from $260 million to $360 million. There were many marketing innovations. Prepared meals for delivery were available from Zuccas, an Italian restaurant in the theater district ($1 a meal, a minimum of two meals required.) Fleischman's Florist had an elegant full page ad that appeared in every issue and in the early forties promised two-hour delivery to numerous cities around the country that could

be reached via telegraph. There were, however, two most significant items featured in Playbills during this time. In 1939, two of the Playbills contain a boxed announcement signed by William Hodson, the Commissioner of Welfare. It stated: "PATRONS OF THIS THEATRE are requested not to aid professional beggars soliciting alms on the streets of New York. Mayor F. H. La Guardia states the people of the City are contributing millions of dollars for the care of the destitute. There is food and a bed for all. New Yorkers are requested to cooperate in the elimination of begging. The Municipal Lodging House at 432 East 25th Street, New York City, is open day and night for feeding and shelter." During the wartime years, there is an entire page devoted to patron safety. In a paragraph that foreshadows later events, it states: "We have learned of a new technique in the invasion of countries. There is no longer a 'war zone.' An entire country is subject to sudden, surprise attacks. Every civilian is exposed to danger. A vital part of our defense, therefore, is that civilians be trained to protect themselves and to know just what to do in the event of an attack from the air. "New York City is in little danger of attack from airplanes. But such an attack is not impossible: New York, as the nerve center of the nation, presents a tempting target which might justify an enemy in taking great risks." (p. 14) "Arsenic and Old Lace," December 29, 1941. I don't know how many of these Playbills the Goodspeed organization will be able to use. I do hope that if they are part of any kind of display in their musical theatre education center or library of musical theatre that my mother's name will be included. "Donated by Marie Imperato Gorman." A life-long theater-goer, she would have loved that.

Baldwin chamber meets by Joan Delaney The Baldwin Chamber of Commerce held its monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 17, at Sonny's Canal House. President Doris Duffy announced that- the Hempstead Town Board has denied the request of developers to change the zoning of the property at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Mjlburn Avenue. Developer Roy Tuccillo had wanted to change the business zone to residential and construct eight apartment units. At the Town Board hearing several residents opposed the application citing the importance of maintaining existing commercial

'What fools these mortals be' Freeport High School student actors will be among the participants when Hofstra University celebrates its 55th annual Shakespeare Festival with a production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream," March 4 to 14, at the John Cranford .Adams Playhouse. The Shakespeare Festival is famous in theater circles as being a terrific training ground for aspiring actors. However, an important and much anticipated part of the annual Festival is the High School Competition, which will take place on March 5 and 12 at 3 p.m. at the John Cranford Adams Playhouse. On both dates, schools will compete for awards for "Best Scene," "Best Actor" and "Best Actress." Typically, some high school students don elaborate Shakespearean costumes, while others do twists on the plays in more modern clothing or street clothes. Freeport High School performs Act II, Scene II of "Macbeth" on Friday, March 5. Since 1951. the Shakespeare high school competition has allowed younger students to perform classic scenes on the Hofstra stage. Long Island native and Tony Award-winning actor Brian Dcnnehy, who accepted an honorary doctorate from Hofslra at midyear commencement in December 2003, said the high school competition gave him his first taste of theatrical success at the age of 15. For more information call the University Relations Office at 463-6819 or Hofstra's Department of Drama and Dance at 463-5444.

zoning in a community with an already small quantity of business. At several resident meetings as well as the Town Board meeting, the developer's attorney Bill Benneso described the application as the best use for the property particularly in terms of traffic and safety. In an unusual action, the Chamber had gone on record, sending a letter to the Town Board opposing the zoning change and urging that the parcel remain zoned business. In other announcements, Ms. Duffy noted that the Baldwin Chamber would be participating in an insurance program initiated by the Council of Chambers of Commerce. The names of insurancebusinesses which are members of the Chamber will be forwarded to the Council since the program makes use of local agents. Ms. Duffy described the program as one which will be good for Baldwin's insurance businesses as well as a help to other members who are seeking affordable health insurance for their employees. The Council of Chambers has set up a separate entity entitled Creative Employee Benefits for Chambers Members for this project.

sporting devils by Linda Hendrickson Basketballmania has hit Frecport High School. Both the boys and girls teams have advanced in their respective tournaments. The boys will meet Uniondale in the finals at SUNY Westbury on Saturday, February 28, while the girls will play Farmingdale in the semi-finals at Bellmore-JFK at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, February 24. "Their defense was outstanding," commented Coach Ernest J. Kight. "We had to play great defense in order to win. Defense will be the key to all remaining games." The Lady Devils were victorious over the Mepham Lady Pirates in the Quarterfinals of the Nassau County Girls Basketball Tournament, 42-20. Sherlise Sawyer scored on the opening tap, and then an incredible defensive game began. Crystal Mitchell, Shauna Patrick and Aja Carter's mission was to stop Randy Bender - Mepham's top scoring machine. A Freeport player was always on her and she was held scoreless until 3:58 in the third quarter. This forced Mepham's other players to handle the ball and shoot more than normal. This was a role they were unaccustomed to playing. Freeport's defense bad done its job well. Freeport came out of the lockerroom with a renewed determination after halftime and outscored Mepham 14-6, opening up a 32-16 lead. Patrick had the hot hand offensively as she accumulated 16 points, five assists and five steals for the night. Erika Jones added 8 while Sawyer and Anna McLean each added six. The Lady Devils dominated both the offensive and defensive boards. MeLean gabbed 12 rebounds while Ashley Straughn (8) and Jones combined for 13.

McLean led the Lady Devils to a 5830 win over the Gold Tornadoes of Lawrence in the opening round of the playoffs with 13 points, 12 rebounds, and six blocked shots. Lawrence had double-teamed McLean and Freeport took advantage of that. Shannon Shippey and Carter each scored eight from the outside, thus forcing Lawrence to rethink its game plan. Straughn, Sawyer, and Jones each scored six in a game where ten players added to the offensive total. "We've been blessed with a deep bench with a variety of skills, reflected Kight. "We have several 'go-to' players." Freeport went on a 15-2 run in the second quarter and opened up a 29-10 halftime lead. It was a scary first half for Freeport's Boys Basketball Team in the semi-final game over the Baldwin Bruins. Freeport looked a little slow and had an unusual number of turnovers. Whatever Coach Bob DeBonis said to the Red Devils at halftime, the players took it to heart and turned an eight-point third-quarter

deficit into a 56-49 win. Freeport went on a 21 -4 run in the third and fourth quarter to put the Red Devils into the title game of the Nassau County Boys Basketball Tournament. This will be the third time Freeport has met Uniondale this season. Each team won on their home court. It's a rubber match this year but the Red Devils remember back further than just this season. This will be the third Freeport-Uniondale final in three years. Freeport lost the other two and the players want this one badly. David Moreno finished with 21 points, 12 rebounds and 3 steals. Brandon Freeman hit a big three-point play with 7:31 to cut the deficit to 39-38. The Red Devils then hit 7 of 9 in the final eight minutes. Kelvin Tulloch hit two huge 3 pointers to give Freeport a 41-39 lead. Jetson Bates (10) and Brandon Freeman ( I I ) combined for 21 points and 18 rebounds. Bates' score on the tap play was a harbinger of what was to come in Freeport's semifinal game against Elmont. Feeport

dominated the boards as Freeman (18) and Moreno (17) grabbed career-high rebounds. The Red Devils totaled 50 rebounds during their 32 minutes of play. Freeman, Moreno, and Bates all hit double digits for the Red Devils on the CT W offensive end. The first quarter had five lead C? 10 changes. Tulloch made two foul shots in the second quarter that put Freeport ahead once and for all. The Red Devils opened up a 28-21 halftime lead. Freeman (18), Moreno (15) and Bales (10) all ended with double figures while m George Glover, Aaron Valentin, Tulloch r w ' and Lennox Norville combined for 18, > a thus rounding out the offensive effort. w Junior swimmer Jason Frazier competed in the division swim meet at the Aquatic center and placed among the lop three finishers in both the 50 freestyle and the 100 yard breasistroke. He has already achieved All Division status and hopes to attain All County or All Conference status at the County Team Championships this week.

THE LEADER


Your ^Perfect invitation

I OH

By Deborah Nadel -. Your invitatjon creates the first impression of the exciting event,:you have in store for your guests. It tells your friends and family that you want to share with them a special moment of your life. The right invitation brings a sense of anticipation and makes your guests anxious for the day to arrive. As a designer of custom invita• tions, I know that creating unique and special invitations is the result oif answering a series of important questions:

CN

£• 1

1 H

What?6 your style? Are you outrageous or reserved? Will you be comfortable with something over-the-top,. or is something more conservative your style? •Remember, the invitation is a reflection of your personality. One client's refined taste led her . to engraved invitations on the finest, J 100% cotton ecru paper. Another more whimsical client was delighted with a neon colored, accordion fbld•ed invitation that was tied with raf. fia:

Q

. What kind of mood do you wont to create? Modern? Romantic? Casual ele.gance? . Every event has its own, special mood. What is yours? To evoke the splendor of spring for an April wedding, I created an invitation using a hand-made paper with floral inclusions. ---.-'-• . " • • ' ! • . . ' • - . - . - - • ,\ '.-• .'. • ; Don't forget color. Colors underscore the-time; of year^the locatiph'of the. event "or the nature of the affair. Bar and bat mitzvahs often employ blue;4\n autumn affair .;..jmightincorporate copper, hues. \-,.-^'/. ~';f-..;-::'./;"' :

Will there be enclosures with the invitation? Response cards and-envelopes, ceremony cards, direction cards and hotel information are often part of the ensemble. Consider creative ways, to hold these items together. They can be tucked inside a vellum wrap with your invitation or can fit into a custom made pocket in a booklet style invitation. Will there be other stationery mid communications with the event? Menu cards, seating cards, thank you notes, ceremony programs, remember to incorporate your invitations motif or color theme. By thinking ahead, you can have these items printed at the same time as your invitation, costing you less than preparing them later. What about calligraphy? ' Calligraphy adds^a handcraft-.. ed quality that is unmistakable. And it's not just for the envelppe address, a hand-lettered invitatipn adds undeniable charm. For one client, I used calligraphy to personalize the invitations so that they looked as if every one was created individually for each guest. Deborah Nadel is an invitation designer and calligrapher.ln addition to bridal couples and bar and-bat mitzvah . families, her clients include Tiffany & Co., Lord & Taylor >,and "Saturday Night Live." -Her work has been featured in.Bride's magazine. She is a member, of the Society of Scribes. Deborah works from 'her home office in Merrick. She can be reached at 632-5923.

6 Garlic Knots Complimentary

One of the oldest restaurants in Merrick, Violetta's formula for success has kept the business thriving for over 35 years. There's nothing pretentious about the food or the ambiance in this family-owned Italian establishment. Good, authentic, traditional dishes at very fair prices are what have built up their reliable reputation in the community. It was in the late sixties when Sicilian-born brothers Sal and Joe Levant! opened the original operation on Merrick Road, primarily as a local pizzeria. They brought from Italy years of tradition and prized homemade recipes. After 12 years the pizzeria was expanded to include a larger eat-in crowd to offer an expanded menu featuring dinner entrees, and a full service catering department to accommodate the entertainment needs of their growing clientele. Years ago. the restaurant was moved to its current location, which allowed it to again expand it's dine-in facilities. The current location is on Sunrise Highway and it's here where for the last 15 years, the restaurant has not only retained but added on to its solid base of loyal customers. Although Sal is still chef, and Joe manages the Pizzeria, Sal's son Frank has joined the family-partnership and has taken an active role in the running of the restaurant. Frank, a former championship body builder, takes a great interest in cooking, fitness and nutrition, and so assures all of his customers that their dietary needs will be fulfilled If you're counting carbohydrates, calories, or are concerned with sugar, salt, or butter, Violetta's will accommodate your special1 requests, whether you eat-in or opt to dine-out, as many busy households prefer to do. The Mussels Possilipo, a great choice as an appetizer, is served with a chunky red sauce, replete with a wide assortment of herbs and garlic. The Stuffed Eggplant was a delightful surprise, not prepared with the usual soaking of red sauce. Instead it's baked with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses,.a delicious and delightful change-of-pace, and allows a greater appreciation of the.distinctive eggplant. If variety is what you crave, then order the Hot or Cold Antipasto, which will be graciously made up for one or for the appropriate number to accommodate your party. The Violetta Salad is quite popular with the regular customers. A mixture of fresh greensvtomatoes, chickpeas, olives, onions, mushrooms and other vegetables are finely chopped and tossed with an excellent Italian vinaigrette. No wonder it's a crowdpleaser. It also makes for a fabulous lunch; accompanied with a bowl of the hearty and popular Minestrone. Entrees are moderately priced, portions quite generous, and many include a choice : of salad or pasta. ' , The menu features a host of traditional veal selections. I found my selection of Scallopine with Marsala and Mushrooms to be exceptional. The veal was fork-tender, and literally smothered with-a fabulous array of delicately cooked mushrooms. Veal Sorrrentina, layered with eggplant, ham, mushrooms, mozzarella, and veal, is baked and presented with a subtle Marsala sauce. . Chicken Capagnola served with potatoes, peas, mushrooms and sauteed onions in a light brown sauce is another noteworthy dish. Seafood fans will love Violetta's rendition of Shrimp Oreganata. Jumbo butterflied shrimp are served in a hearty Scampi sauce permeated with delicious seasonings, garlic, and just a trace of breadcrumbs. Pasta dishes selections are plentiful and can be ordered as sides or Entrees. If you .are with a party of four or more and enjoy the traditional favorites, you should consider the Combo Platter for a really great deal.
