Special angel Joy Levy, the widow of the late State Senator Norman Levy who served this area for decades, and Stephanie Joyce Kahn of Long Beach have a lot in common. Both graduated from Long Beach High School. Both have vision problems. Stephanie became blind as a result of an auto accident years ago, and Joy has trouble reading since .her stroke a few years ago. Both are the kind of person who lights up a room when, she .enters it, not just because of her physical beauty but because of the warm way in which she greets and makes friends. . Both have changed their worlds by caring about others, not their own problems. Anyone who talks to either of them ends up feeling more positive about everything than when the conversation began. Stephanie Joyce Kahn began the foundation that bears her'name, when she realized that it is-not just the blind who often find themselves unable to read in a hospital or nursing home. The SJK Foundation provides free audiotapes to many hospitalized patients, finding that they help patients deal with pain and loneliness as part of a holistic approach to medicine. Tapes are also provided to the homebound and children in pediatric wards. In one special program, high school students write and record stories for children, a rewarding experience for both. State Senator Norman Levy and Joy were among her earliest supporters decades ago. Years later, when. Joy herself began to haye vision problems, she became an avid "reader" of audiobooks herself. And so one of the foundation's benefactors became one of its recipients. Joy Levy will be honored as -a "Special Angel" to the SJK Foundation at a.gala dinner dance, Thursday, June 3, at the Chateau Briand Restaurant, starting at 7 p.m. Tickets for the gala, which will feature entertainment by the Platters, are $150 and may be obtained by calling the SJK Foundation at 889-5105. There is probably not a single person in the world who will not find himself or herself hospitalized, or homebound at some point in life. That means that the services the SJK Foundation provides nationwide could make any one of us.feel better during a trying time. If you would like to learn more about the SJK Foundation and how to volunteer, visit its website at listeningtherapy.org.

FHS INTERACTERS HAD A GOOD TIME at their Winter Holiday Dinner.

Freeport High School Interact The -Interact Chapter of Freeport High School finally set aside March, 16, for their Winter Holiday Dinner. Busy schedules and various commitments . kept the club from their annual get together that usually lakes place in- December. Still, on March 16, at 6-8:30 p.m., members enjoyed an evening of great food and wonderful conversation The Interact Club, a community service organization, is comprised of Freeport High School students and is sponsored by the Freeport Rotary Club. In the past year, the Interact members have worked to support many the charitable causes in and outside of the Freeport Community. Working together, the club' has managed to donate twenty five boxes of non-perishable food' to the INN, Interfaith Nutritional Network, for weekend food supplies. Located on Babylon

Turnpike, the INN feeds Freeporl residents every day. In addition, they provide groceries for weekend meals. Interact students participated in' the 5K Breast Cancer Walk at Jones Beach, donated money to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Foundation of New York, as well as to The Taylor Fund, a fund set side for an Oceanside family whose son suffers from Leukemia. Donations are possible because of the group's fund-raising commitment. The Club began in September of 2001, with eight members. Since then, it has grown into a group of twenty six dedicated young men and women. Mrs. Lindner, a teacher and club adviser for the Interact Chapter at Freeport High, says she is overwhelmed by the dedication from these students and is sure that the club will continue to grow.


Jeffrey Hollman, a man of distinction by Joan Delaney Baldwin's Assistant Superintendent for .Instruction Jeffrey Hollman is a man of distinction. His ever-present bow tie is, perhaps, a lesson in point, for his decision to wear it illustrates the thought-process that marks this seasoned educator. "I hate ties; I think they're stupid, they're decoration and serve no purpose." And yet professional norms require them. And so, the long-time teacher and educator brought both common sense and creativity to the requirement with his decision to wear a bow tie. He is distinctive. Mr. Hollman is a 1969 graduate of Case Western Reserve in Cleveland where he graduated with a major in English and a minor in education. A master's followed from Long Island University and he has completed all his course work for a doctorate from New York University (NYU) with the exception of his thesis. "That's one of my goals," he said, as he spoke about his years in education and his retirement plans in an interview with The Leader. "I have several possibilities." He discussed his thoughts on a thesis topic that would explore staff and human development. "I believe we should study ways to structure schools to maximize the development of staff." Another topic to explore might include his experiences in helping to create the first high school Gay-Straight Alliance in the Long Island area in response to a request from Baldwin students. Mr. Hollman began his career in Glen Cove where he taught English at both the middle school and high school. After taking one year off, he proceeded to Bellport High School where he taught English for ten years and served as assistant principal for six years. From there he went to

Plainedge as principal, committed to bringing stability to a ^school "that had seen significant administrative turn-over. In 1995 he came to Baldwin as principal of the high school, a professional relationship which culminated in his appointment almost three years ago as Asssistant Superintendent for Instruction. "It's time," he said, speaking of his retirement. Eventually, however, he hopes to teach at the college level. For this educator, teaching and administration have been an interesting process of. accomplishment and' personal development. When asked to describe his achievements as well as his challenges, they are frequently one and the same. He speaks of his increasing awareness of the importance of allowing all students to • "move up," to stretch beyond the narrow constraints of tracking. In fact he has saved a letter which was sent to him when he was principal in Plainedge by a contingent of students in a lower track. It speaks of the feelings of these young people and the Stigna and differences in opportunities they believed were associated with tracking. He came to Baldwin when new Regents mandates required that all students pass the English Regents to graduate and he 'describes that tjme of "the upward movement of kids" as "very frightening" for staff who had to provide additional support systems so that all youngsters could accomplish their goals. He calls Baldwin's commitment to allow students to "try A.P. classes" as significant, contrasting it with an "exclusive approach which is hurtful and does not engender excellence." Rigid tracking, he thinks, "sends a message to kids that you're not as valuable." "I'm a firm believer in praising students for their academic accomplishments. I believe we should do for academics what

athletics- has done for athletes." He describes the kinds' of positive reinforcement needed to affirm students who achieve. "I created the Academic Hall of Fame. If a student won a Spanish essay contest, I took a picture. The plaques we put up set the tone and helped answer the ' question 'What is your school known as'?'" Among his other accomplishments he cites his insistence on an attendance policy for sports eligibility. At first there was "a lot of. grief," but eventually the policy helped change behavior. His comments on education are thoughtful. "I'm a public education person. Vouchers frighten me." In defining his ideas on the role of education, he says. "The educational system should create citizens who can operate this democracy. That's role number one. The spin-off is that education should prepare people for rich lives, to see the complexity of life and enjoy it." That is why Mr. Hollman was so drawn to Baldwin. "I knew Ray Melucci (the former high school principal) and I came to visit the high school before I-applied. It was after school and the place was filled with kids participating in all sorts of activities." Mr, Hollman has nothing but praise for the Board of Education and fellow administrators whose budgeting priorities "do an excellent job of giving kids options. These kids have all sorts of raw talertts and skills." Regarding systemic problems in education, he calls the funding process "criminal," adding that "an accident of birth can result in a good education or not." He describes as problematic the present assessment system which requires an increasing numbers of standardized tesls. "These tests are only a snapshot in time; they don't reflect the kind of rich assess-

as re

ments ihat former commissioners of education understood." He spoke of the impor- H tance of creating assessments that allow c students "to show the full range of what Q. they know and what they can do." Perhaps Mr. Hollman's awareness of the importance of "doing" as well as "knowing" mirrors his own interests and background. "My Dad. who was a Depressionera kid. has a deep reverence for the object. Nothing is ever thrown out." Extending thai philosophy crealively. Mr. Hollman has joyously labored as a woodcurvcr and 3C sculptor, often using scrap wood to create in artwork (hat sometimes towers over his m own (all frame. Although his work was > O included in 1990 in the Long Island Artists en Show at the Nassau Museum of An. Mr. 73 Hollman shrugs off his accomplishments as a hobby, albeit one lo which he will he able to devote more time in his retirement. Mr. Hollman and his wife Dr. Laurie Hollman, a. psychoanalyst in private practice, are the parents of (wo sons. David. 2S. a computer scientist who graduated from Cornell, and Richard 26. an actor who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and is now completing a masters program at NYU's New School. A man of rich experience in the field of education. Mr. Hollman seems to personify the definition of a Renaissance man. One wall of his office is papered with a huge world map. A framed timeline of the Hislory of Civilization on the oilier wall is surrounded by various paintings. It is this holistic approach lo education - knowing, understanding, participating, creating, doing, and appreciating - (hat Jeffrey Hollman has tried to transmit to his slu• dents. as an educator for over three .decades. "A rich education...a rich life." a motto from a man who continues lo practice what he believes.

Mr. Raab was elected three years ago along with Board President Dr. Joseph Cattano.

McCarthy announces $500K Freeport funds Congrcsswoman Carolyn McCarthy (NY-4.) today announced Ihe House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure included $500,000 for pedestrian access improvements to Sunrise Highway in Freeport in HR 3550, The Transportation Equity Act. The Village of Freeport.is seeking assistance to provide pedestrian streetscape improvements to Sunrise Highway between Guy Lomhardo Avenue and Henry Street. Enhancements would include widened brick sidewalks, street trees, planters, pedestrian-scale lamp features, benches, garbage receptacles, crosswalks, medians, bike racks, and the creation of new green space. The project has -been designated to improve safely and circulation, facilitate access by pedestrians and bicyclists to commercial, recreational and transportation destinations while strengthening the economic base by creating jobs and generating tax revenues and enhancing the scenic quality of the highway. "This is wonderful news, for Freeporl," McCarthy said. "I'm glad the committee recognized the serious need for these improvements. This isn't the end of the road by any means, but it's truly wonderful news." "The next step in the process is final approval by the House, but I'm confident that the importance of this project will guarantee its survival in the final version of the bilf. Nassau County faces unique transportation demands, but this money will go a long way in addressing our problems," Mrs. McCarthy added..

With better understanding, bays slowly rejuvenating by Douglas Finlay

0.

Editor's Note: This is the second part of a two-part stoiy Of all the issues Don Harris, vice-president of Freeport-based SPLASH (Stop Polluting Littering And Save the Harbors) presents, he said that no issue is as important as the sustainability of the creatures that inhabit the bays. In this, the shell fishermen could not agree more. And it is'in this area of sustainability that association members unanimously agree the Town of Hempstead does its most compelling and gratifying work. "We have the most aggressive clamming program anywhere on Long Island, with a seasonal program and two conditional programs," said Ed Thomas, president of the Hempstead Shellfishermen's Association. "Conditional program, program A, is open in Fall and Spring, and program B is open four months, from December I to March 31." He added that all programs are still at

1

the mercy of rainfalls, which bring nonsource pollutants such as papers, oils'and plastic from streets to drain, into the bays, necessitating closure for up to eight days. The town boasts a vigorous clam-growing program targeted for both shell fishermen and recreational shell fishermen. "Each year our department buys 1. to 1 1/4 million seed from a local company that sells them from spawner clams under controlled conditions." said Ron Masters, commissioner of the town Department of Conservation and Waterways. "In addition, for'the past several years, the Hempstead baymen have provided 1/2 million larger seed from the same grower." He said that the seedling clams, grown in indoor vats in which nutrient-rich salt wate'r and seeds are mixed, grow within six months into thumbnail-sized clams. He said the thuhibnail-sized clams are then hand-seeded into areas scientists working in its state-certified laboratory believe are relatively depleted or are highly produc-

tive.

"

He also said that since clams are edible, monitoring of waler and the clams'themselves are necessary to test for total bacterial levels and for coliform. ."Longer term, the water quality data is used by our science staff and the [state Department of* Environmental Conservation] DEC's shellfish management staff to consider opening areas that have been traditionally closed because of human activities near shorelines." It is precisely these seed programs that help shell fishermen survive the brutal winters, in addition to fund-raising money they raise that goes to buying larger clams the town plants for them as well. "The seedlings take one-and-a-half to (hire years to grow," shell fisherman Bob Roth said', ' "but the clams we buy are bigger so that when the town plants them for us they can grow in a few months' time." The clams they ask the town (o plant arc Netada clams. "You know when you gel

one because il has a distinctive design on the shell." shellfisherman Tom Jeffries said.

PLAY BALL...Baldwin's own Bob Sheppard is beginning his 54th- year as the stadium announcer for the New York Yankees. Honored in 2000, he said then he had no plans to retire. Reggie Jackson described Bob's announcing as "the voice of Godi" BaldwJnites have also enjoyed his talents as the announcer at the past two summer softball games and- at numerous community events. Both. he and his wife Mary, a retired Baldwin school teacher, are frequently lectors at St. Christopher's. Bob's classic style of announcing brings a sense of tradition to the Yankees. . When he does decide to retire, fans can still remember him when they visit Yankee Stadium and see the monument honoring his service alongside those commemorating such Yankee greats as Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio and Mickey Mantle. „

Bays rejuvenate from page 10 locally grown clam to a real chef at a reputable restaurant demands higher pricing hul we gel their business, and it pays off for both of us. All the restaurants want locally grown clams." Which explains why-the shell fisherman have grown accustomed to living with a certain degree of angst come the season's opening.. Said shellfisherman Mike Combs, "It's not (he snow_as much as the ice forming a foot-and-a-half thick at low' tide and setting up on sand bars to sheer the tops of the bars and expose the clams, which freezes them." Mr. Thomas added that at limes northwest winds do as much damage to ihe sand bars as the ice because it will also expose the clams and freeze ihe ground. He said ihe association often requests the lown to planl seed where it had the best chance of survival, perhaps off the edges of the ba°r so they won't become exposed to ice or wind. Chlorine may be the most neglected, or ignored, issue when discussing the bays. The Jones Beach sewage plant, hidden among tall dense brush just northeast of the Jones Beach Theatre, empties its trealed sewage into the bay in the form of chlorinated water. While it is known lo Ireal over 750,000 gallons of raw' sewage in an hour during summer peak limes on Saturdays and Sundays, and when there are concerts at the thealre, il Ireals some. 100,000 gallons during a regular day and practically nothing during the winter monlhs, discharging only negligible amounts of chlorine. Compare this to the Cedar Creek sewage planl in Wantagh, which Ireals some 50 million gallons of raw sewage daily. However Cedar Creek does not empty its effluenl into the bays but about a mile and a half out .into the ocean, according' to Christine Marzigliano, chairwoman of ihe Cedar Creek Heallh Risk Assessmenl Committee. "New York State, which runs the old facility at Jones Beach, ma.de a buffer zone lo both the easl and the west of the outflow pipe inlo the bay and recertified a certified clamming area as uncertified for clamming," Mr. Thomas said. "They lold us thai because il was an aulomalic facility lhal was unmanned, somelhing could happen

•in ihe planl beyond iheir control", to affect the bay environment. He said the association approached the stale to request classifying the area as certified from December 1 through April I when ihere was no aclivity at the beach or theatre at all, and was soundly rebuffed. Mr. Masters called chlorine an "effective disinfectant but the longer-term degradalion products of chlorinated organic compounds are virtually unknown." Mj\_ Thomas added, "If chlorine is killing the nutrients then we are breaking the food chain." Cory Wyanl, well-known veteran fisherman of Ihe bays, has said thai when he goes up-canal looking for fish he will often witness homeowners dumping their chlorinated pools into the canals. Mr. Masters made it quite clear, however, that lown code, slale environmental jurisdiction and the Environmental Protection Agency, through ihe Clean Water Act, do not permit dumping, of chlorination of any type directly inlo water without a permit. Adrienne Esposito. for the Citizens' Campaign- for the Environment, said that the Bush admjnistration has instructed its agencies.not to enforce the Clean Water Act protection in many wetlands and small slreams. The Long Island's South Shore Estuary Reserve has a significant number of tributaries protected by wetlands lhal may be vulnerable lo alteration or degradation, thus affecting our bays. Environmental advocates are urging the slate Legislature lo pass ihe Clean Water Protection and Flooding Prevention Acl. A7905 DiNapoli/S.4480. If passed inlo law, this bill would allow New York's Department of Environmental' Conservation to regulate wetlands (and therefore our bays) left unprotected by the changes in federal policy. Still, Mr. Harris remains oplimislic aboul the bays this year, the next year and the years lo come. "We have come a long way, and have lurned away from corporate dealings that slow down rejuvenation of the bays. There is sustainabilily in growing clams, and Ihe children are now being taught ihe right message and beginning to understand it." Perhaps we are now slowly reversing the hands of the bays' own nuclear clock.

Dodd Middle School, SUNY dance figures from last year. The event Old Westbury and The Harvard Club of was aimed at helping J.W. Dodd Middle Long Island. School students and their parents understand the academic and financial importance of planning now Tor college. Superintendent Dr. Eric L. Eversley set the lone of the day in his introduction, when he said, "Completion of college is • a powerful way to maximize your potential, but you can't start (oo late. Today is about putting things in place; positioning ourselves for success." In his keynote address Dr. Calvin O. by the Achds0ry ^vtxicll-will be Butts, III, president of SUNY Old Weslbury, said, "Toclay, college is a must. The job market is tight. The economy is shifting. You will be competing with people from all over the world. Jobs will go 1 to those who are most qualified. You are here today to find oul what il's like to go U> college, what you need to do,-and what will be expected of you." The opening panel discussion, which was led by Dodd Principal John O'Mard, FHS Head Guidance Counselor Nick Agostinacchio, and Dodd guidance counselors Peggy Cluck and Mario Salcedo, focused on key elements to building a solid high school "resume," including course selection, extra-curricular activities and community service. Then, in one of the favorite events of the day, a panel of ten college students, including FHS.alumni and SUNY Old Westbury students, answered questions about their own college experiences. Next, while students toured the campus,_a panel discussion led by enrollment directors and financial aid counselors, helped parents get some answers to their three most pressing questions: "How can I help my child chose the right school?", "What can we do to increase my child's chances of being be accepted there?" and "How will we pay for it all?". Capping things off was special guest speaker Freeman 'McNeil, former run"ning back of the New York Jets, who spoke to the crowd about the importance of a college education, even for those students who do plan to grow up to be famous sports stars. Then attendees were treated-to lunch before heading home to "digest" everything they had learned. "In our survey of both parents and students, the results were overwhelmingly positive," said guidance counselor Peggy Cluck. "Next year we plan to add even more information about scholarships."-. This event was the culmination of a year of events aimed at focusing Dodd students' energies on higher education, including breakfast discussions with
