Silly season starts The roots of American democracy grew in Northern Europe in olden days, when the village elders met under a tree and made important decisions. The tradition carried over to old New England, where town meetings still are held in some villages. Locally, the closest we have are local village^ school or library board meetings, where residents can at least have their say if not a vote. The chance to vote comes now "in the Spring when local elections are held. You can vote for those who will make the decisions that most affect you. If you are not happy with the choices that have been made recently, you can field your own candidate or run for office yourself.

This past week I spent three days in Washington? D.C. as part of a contin^mihaUndudeckover 200 ffiembersfof" a volunteer group that assists those in need. We were participating in workshops and informational programs that culminated in visits to senators and members of congress to whom we spoke about issues of concern. As individual groups from over 45 states returned from these visits to the Hill, the reports were similar. All of them had been greeted with courtesy and their comments and requests were respectfully received. Perhaps not every elected official will act positively upon every recommendation, but at least these legislators knew there was a constituency interested in these particular concerns. Too often individual citizens allow special interest groups to control lobbying. Certainly there is plenty of money in the private sector, whether it be money from unions, corporations or industries, and that money seems to make the words of their lobbyists resonate to elected officials. These lobbyists would like nothing more than to

Does educating ourselves take some level of commitment? Certainly they do, but the results are more productive than our just grumbling. As never before, the stakes are high, directions are being mapped out, priorities are being set, monies are being appropriated. It has been said that a budget is a blueprint for action. Others say that federal, state and local budgets are more than that, that they .are moral documents. Financial appropriations indicate our priorities as. a nation. We must all play a part in defining those priorities.

Baldwin Chamber president explains 'wish list' by Joan Delaney Baldwin Chamber of Commerce President Doris Duffy responded to Assemblyman Bob Barra's comment that he had asked her and the Chamber to compile a "wish list" of improvements pending the possibility of securing a state grant for funding. Ms. Duffy noted that the goal of the Chamber is "to improve Baldwin from the Southern State to Atlantic Avenue" as funding becomes available from Mr. Barra and also from county and town sources.

Improvements would include there. There is also interest irt moving facades, sidewalks, lighting, landscapfoward on a previously promised ing, parking lots and street Phase 2 of "downtown" trees.

Further enhancements would then radiate from that center to points north and south. Because the library, post office, fire department, and LIRR station are in a concentrated area, that central portion of the community has been considered Baldwin's unofficial downtown. Baldwin's remaining business district is loosely scattered primarily along Grand Av.enue with occasional shopping centers and ancillary strip malls.

Baldwin board begins budget review <U

"a OS T3 £ 3.

« W

-1 W

by Joan Delaney With only a handful of residents present, the Baldwin Board of Education held the first of its three public budget work sessions on March 3, to consider the proposed 2004-5 school budget. Assistant Superintendent for Business Ed Cigna directed the presentation. Superintendent of Schools Kathy Weiss noted that the present budget draft is a working document."^'We'vlPsharpened our pencil...there will be changes as we go along." The tentative budget figures, as they presently stand, show a proposed budget of $88.1 million, up from a 2003-4 'budget of $81.7 million, an approximate 7 percent increase. The budget is divided into three main codes - Administrative (includes Board of Education and various Administrative costs), Capital (which includes all operation and maintenance costs) and Program (which includes all instructionrelated costs). In a budgeting process which requires districts to place all costs within the three codes, expenses for salaries and benefits for employees must be placed within the appropriate three codes according to their job descriptions. The March 3 review considered the Administrative and Capital codes. Mr. Cigna stressed that 11 percent of the total budget is in the administrative code and 13 percent in the capital code. Almost 40

percent of the increase in the administrative code and over 30 percent of the increase in the capital code are a result of retirement, Social Security, workman's compensation and hospital/medical, and dental increases. •Those four items account for $360,~65(Tbf the $8-1-4,7 IGiscreaseiTPthT5 administrative code and $391,195 of the $1,023,950 increase in the capital coder-Mrr Cigna noted that those :are costs "over which we have no control." These increased retirement costs, in particular, are passed on from the state which has suffered deficits because their investments, which fund the retirement plans, have decreased in value in a sagging financial economy. In reviewing the capital code, Mr. Cigna noted that they have also been told to expect increased electric costs of 10 percent for. the high school from Freeport Electric. Because a portion of high school grounds lies within the Village of Freeport, the district has enjoyed those lower costs, which over the years, have represented a savings of $100,000 to the district. Although the $26.9 million facilities bond was recently passed by voters, there are still some capital improvements which. are included in capital repairs. Dr. Weiss noted that most of them fall into the category of "hazards" or are items that were deemed not appropriate for a bond.

The state allows $100,000 of such capital improvements to be reimbursed at a rate of 54 percent the following year. Since the district has presently slotted $180,000 of such repairs in the budget draft, Board President James Scannell suggested keepmgJhjU code "on hold" ;= TV\i-~~Further Further ^tAX/^nL-ina TK**~ n7TfiiTf£i?i?;'l~ $80,000 would only be reimbursed at 54 percent over 15 years. Mr. Cigna also pointed out that the district's debt costs for sorrie of its own previous bonds have been satisfied.

To The Leader: I don't need to be reminded that taxes are going up because of "historic" jobs like the "Flood Bowl." Repair or reconstructing roads is like cutting grass; you have to do it every year. If you check the Freeport map that comes in your local phone book there are over 200 streets and roads in this village. What frightens me is that Mayor Glacken wants to repair them all at once. Also there are" other expenses in road projects, like replacement of water mains and gas mains that are not mentioned, and of course how much those repairs/upgrades cost. Mayor Glacken, give the Freeporters a break and slow down. We all are willing to pay our fair share of taxes, but your increases are out of control. In what other village, town, county, state have taxes gone up 70+% in 7 years? The people of Freeport are being choked. I took my family of 5 plus godson out to the local diner last night for dinner and it cost me $75 with tip. Twould like the Mayor and the Board to take the time on quality of life issues, for instance the upcoming summer on Nautical Mile. The noise will be back, the parking problems will envelop South Ocean, Nassau, Miller and South Long Beach Avenues every weekend. We never had these problems until.the past 4 years. Why does the Mayor and the Board ignore these issues? Addressing these issues would not result in a tax increase, but would result in a better quality of life for the many residents affected by this on-going, ever increasing problem. Another problem is, the Mayor and Board ignore the parking of commercial vehicles in full view of Freeporters and guests in residential areas. Also the

word is out that the Nautical Museum has been shut down. I would like to know about that from our Mayor and Board. Support the Freeport Tax Relief Committee and all your local civic and religious organizations. They are the heartbeat and the watchdogs for Freeporters. James Caracciolo Editor's note: A spokesman for the village told The Leader that the.Nautical Museum will be re-opening in the spring under the auspices of the village.

Baldwin's Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathy Weiss is slated to retire at the end of the 2004-05 school year. The quasi-announcement came during the first public budget workshop when, almost as an aside, Board of Education President James Scannell noted, "There's an additional $25,000 in the budget code (Board of Education budget code) for the superintendent search." Dr. Weiss' future retirement was first alluded to two years ago when a team of consultants was hired to.make recommendations regarding the district's organizational structure. At that time it was noted that a number of the district's administrators would be eligible to retire, and the district wanted to review the most appropriate administrative structure for the future.' At the conclusion of this school year, both Deputy Superintendent Lee Chapman and Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Jeffrey Hollman will be retiring. Assistant Superintendent for Business Ed Cigna was brought on in September so that there could be a transitional year with Dr. Chapman for that most complicated portion of school district administration. The district has placed advertisements , for an assistant superintendent for human resources to cover the personnel aspects of Dr. Chapman's position. Dr. Chapman has been responsible for both business and personnel since the retirement of Dr. Phylis Almenoff six years ago. However, in their public recommendations, the consultants suggested that those responsibilities would be better restructured under two administra-

BALDWIN HIGH SCHOOL Spanish students learn about hispanic culture.

BHS celebrates Day of the Dead El Dia de los Muertos (The Day of • the Dead) is a joyous occasion that Mexican families celebrate to honor deceased family and friends. Leslie Wecksler's Spanish classes at Baldwin Senior High School celebrated their own Dia de los Muertos on November 3. The students planned the festivities for weeks while learning the holiday's history and significance in Mexican culture. For the feast, students brought in tacos, tortilla chips, hot cocoa, pan del

muerto (bread of the dead), and alfeniques (sugar candies shaped like skulls). The room was decorated with pictures of skulls and paper art'created by the students. The main focus was the beautiful ofrenda (altar) constructed out of Mrs. Wecksler's desk, to which personal photographs, candles, flowers, and incense were added. Jeanne Nagel's classes joined in the festivities. Students laughed, told stories, and ate the delicious food in commemoration of this Mexican holiday.

Giblyn Book Buddies <u

The "Book Buddies" program at Leo F. Giblyn School is a book club with a twist - fourth graders in Mary Johnson's enrichment class have been getting together to read their favorite books with a combined class of first and second grade students. Each fourth grader teams up with a younger partner and they pick a book to read together. After finishing the book, students gel individualized projects to complete, so

that everyone is challenged to an appropriate degree, based on both age and ability. "This is what we call a collaborative reading project," said teacher Robyn Burros, who team teaches a combined first and second grade class with Martha Yako. "It creates a very dynamic classroom environment, where students at all levels learn from each other as they enjoy reading together." FOURTH GRADERS at Leo F. Giblyn School in Freeport pair up with second graders to share some reading fun in the "Book Buddies" Club. From left are buddies Brian Arreuillaga (second grade) and Benjamin Bonifacio (fourth grade); Sean Nestor (fourth grade) and Melissa Soberanis (second grade); with Alison Riso (fourth grade) and Jazmin Blackman (second grade).

Winter may still hang heavy in the air, but snow and ice did not deter the first planning meeting for the Freeport School Districts 2004-05 "First Day Celebration." At the beginning of the 2003-04 school year, the district joined forces with the Freeport PTAs to put together the community's first back-to-school celebration, a two-day event that kickedoff the school year -with a Community Barbecue, followed by "Take Your Parents to School Day." Drawing on last September's success, the PTA Council invited community members and school administrators to a

"coffee klatch" meeting at the Freeport Recreation Center, where they began planning the next celebration. After a review of the last event, the group broke into committees to plan publicity, sponsorship, school events, raffles, safety, and the expanded involvement of community organizations. "We hope to make the First Day Celebration bigger and better this September," said PTA Council President Debra Mule. "We want to find even more ways to make this into an event that includes the whole Freeport community in celebrating our children." —-H BOARD OF EDUCATION PRESIDENT Dr. Joseph Cattano, PTA Council President Debra Mule, and Archer Street Principal Paula Lein came up with lots of new possibilities for next year's "First Day" raffles, including a trip, a television, or maybe even a car!

Baldwin budget review from page 6 sary for school districts to borrow money through tax anticipation notes. Those interest expenses cost the district $325,000 a year. Deputy Superintendent Lee Chapman noted that the district gets almost 50 percent of its state aid in May and June. Property tax revenues, collected by the county, don't arrive until November despite their being collected earlier. These delayed revenues require districts to borrow to fund payrolls and operational expenses. Board member

B.A. Schoen noted the frustration in having to pay interest costs, which add nothing to education while having to curtail spending for items that would benefit students. "This cost adds nothing to education. We should be spending it on additional teachers, not on interest costs," he said. The next discussions of the proposed budget will take place on March-17 when the Instruction Code will be reviewed and on March 24, when a final proposed budget- will be voted on by the Board. Both sessions take place at the District Office on Hastings Street at 8 p.m.
