Will Freeport receive aid? underserved, and in many cases, minorby Joan Delaney Standing shoulder to shoulder at ity communities. Mitch Pally, the Vice-President of Church Street and Sunrise Highway in Freeport on April 1, Mayor William Legislative and Economic Affairs at the Glacken and Nassau County Executive Long Island Association, noted that the Thomas Suozzi spoke of renewed efforts creation of Empire Zones for Nassau to secure Empire Zones for Nassau County has been his group's top legislaCounty to assist in economic develop- tive priority for two years. During a questioning period, Mr. ment. "There are 72 in the state, in 55 counties; there are three in Suffolk, ten Suozzi was asked why local legislators in New York City and there are zero in should assist him after his recent critical Nassau County. It's a question of fair- comments about some of them in the news media. Mr. Suozzi shrugged and ness," said Mr. Suozzi. Nassau County is seeking Empire said, "I hope their personal feelings Zones for six non-contiguous areas in won't interfere." Mr. Pally quickly -walked to the the Town of Hempstead, including Elmont, Franklin Square, Inwood, microphone to add, "This is not about Roosevelt, Uniondale, and West Tom Suozzi. This is an issue for Hempstead as well as New Cassel, Republicans, Democrats, Independents, Bethpage, the City of Glen Cove, the and Conservatives. Nassau County is being hampered by an inability to grow." Villages of Hempstead and Freeport. In Empire Zones companies which are .

Companies are eligible for "constantly revitalize." He referred to a sales tax exemption, real property and June 18 target date for groundbreaking business tax credits.

space.'That development plus 'the rieaiby Main.'Street Mews slated-to; include a restaurant and 1(5 units of housing and workspace for artists are all geared toward enticing more people to live, work, shop and engage in recreational activities in the village. He spoke of niche businesses and boutiques, as well as the possibility of a movie complex, for the envisioned renaissance of Freeport's downtown. As pictures were taken and questions answered,. Mr. Suozzi continued to speak of the importance of revitalization. He said that the magnificently improved Nautical Mile will be Mayor Glacken's legacy. Also present was Robert Klein, Vice President of Engineering, Logistics and Technology at Northrop Grumman Corporation who stressed the value of incentives that help companies to

expand. He noted that his company's recent programs with the Empire State Development Corporation and Nassau County Industrial Development Agency have allowed them to make facilities improvements and grow substantially on Long Island. "Since the implementation of these recent programs, we are adding 1,000 jobs." In the economic development presentations that Mr. Suozzi has conducted around the county, he consistently speaks of the necessity of job growth, workforce housing, and the maximizing of existing space. He has noted, "We can't create more space so we have to do more with what we have." Commenting on the perception that Nassau County is viewed by outsiders as a wealthy area, he said, "I appreciate that characterization, but please give us our fair share of Empire Zones."


PSC approves Freeport Electric Rate Increase The .New York State Public Service

cs Commission has approved an electric rate increase of 18.2%, effective April 1, for Freeport Electric ratepayers. Freeport Electric had asked for an 18.9% increase. The state Public Service Commission also approved the village's oo request to apply approximately $2 million of the settlement payment from the ci, New York Power Authority (NYPA) to < offset the full impact of the rate increase >^ <a in the first year. The net impact to the 1 monthly bill is projected to be approximately 10% in the first year of the rale increase. The utility will rebate this money as a line item-credit, which will W appear on your monthly bill. The credit Q < will apply for approximately one year, depending on electric usage in that year. At the Public Service Commission W hearing held January 7, Freeport H Electric said that there would be another approximately 8.2 percent rate increase in the second year. This translates into an increase in its annual revenues from electric service by a little less than $4.8 million. Hub Bianco, Superintendent of Freeport Electric, told residents .at the public hearing that the utility is not able to ask for an increase for at least three years. Freeport Electric announced that

s

beginning in May 1, 2005, and for all succeeding years, the utility will return profits earned from, the sale of electricity and capacity to entities other than Freeport Electric customers. Freeport Electric believes these sales will be possible as a result of the completion of the new power generation project at Power Plant 2. The new facility will provide 44 megawatts of capacity, "a net increase of 27 megawatts compared to the ojd Power Plant 2 diesels," said Mr. Bianco. This rebate will also appear as a line item credit on the monthly bill. "The full benefit of this plan is difficult to project because it is dependenum the wholesale energy market, weather conditions and the price of natural gas," said a press release issued by Freeport Electric. "This rate adjustment strategy is an extension of the current utility practice, which applies LIPA capacity payments to pay down the debt on the new PP2 unit. The sale of energy should help minimize the cost of energy and keep village rates competitive with other utilities." The utility was last granted a rate increase of 7.1% in February 2002, under the terms of a negotiated settlement answering the 2001 filing. That increase addressed immediate financial

Looking for God in every face The scene is familiar in many churches this week. A Passion Play is held to re-play the roles of Jesus Christ and his followers during the week that led up to His crucifixion and resurrection. The parts may be played by the ushers and the Sunday school teacher, and they are familiar to most people in the room. But to a young visitor the whole experience can be terrible. And so one little boy struggled in the arms of his .aunt to rush down and try to stop the Roman soldiers from torturing the red-paint spattered man who was playing the role of Jesus. His reaction was so human and so noble. And one can imagine that an innocent child of any faith would do the same. This week our Jewish readers celebrate Passover and the liberation of the Jews from Egypt. Many people know that Moses led the Jews out of Egypt and received the Ten Commandments from God, observed by both Christians and Jews. Many people do not know that the Passover seder was also the Last Supper eaten by Jesus Christ with his followers and observed by Christians this week as part of a Holy Week that culminates in Easter Sunday. Easter Sunday is not the ending of a sad story for Christians but rather the beginning of proclaiming good news about God's love for jnankind, and the gift of eternal life. We have so much in common in our two faiths, born in the same region of the Middle East and addressing the same God. The same .can even be said of Islam, the world's fastest growing faith, held by a fifth of the world's population, that is, over a billion people. Yet today there is so much misunderstanding, and we stand at the brink of a potential world war. Holy Week is a good time to reflect on how much we have in common, starting with a faith in the same God. The staff of The Leader Wishes All Our Readers A Happy Easter and a Sweet

Passover

WHY THE INCORRECT PERCEPTIONS?...At the most recent community meeting held by County Legislator Joseph Scannell in Baldwin and at numerous community meetings held by other elected officials, there always seems to be a wide disparity between what people perceive and the facts that are presented on crime. Why? In the last several years that both the county legislator as well as town Councilman Anthony Santino have held their respective meetings, I have heard residents claim excessive fear and concern about crime. Granted, any crime is too much and any incident one too many, but it would be totally unrealistic to think that only our community should be immune from the normal statistics on crime'that are found in similar suburban communities. Resident perception should be particularly contrasted with comments made time and again by police officers - that crime statistics in Baldwin are not excessive and that gang-related activity is minimal. Why the difference in perception? Could it be how some • media report

crime? In programs I have been asked to give to community groups about journalism, I make it a special point to stress that newspapers must not only get the facts correct, but that they must also put those facts into a correct context. Information must be presented proportionately. Sunday's Newsday publishes a crime blotter and the kinds of crimes listed show Baldwin as similar to other areas occasional break-ins, burglaries and car thefts. Fortunately, more serious crimes are relatively few. Residents should listen carefully to the words that police officials use when they do describe these occasional serious incidents. Do they use the words "random" or "targeted?" And when they indicate that the community should not be fearful, what message is being sent? We must remember that during investigations law enforcement authorities cannoj say everything they know about a crime. When they give reassurances to a community rather than a list of cautions to be followed, they are trying their best to be honest while not jeopardizing the case. In The Leader, we list most crimes as part of a regular police blotter report and

Jensen to be honored by Joan Delaney The tradition of Sportsweek and the name of Marie Jensen are virtually synonymous in Baldwin. ' A physical education teacher in Baldwin for 35 years as well as Director of the Physical Education Department at the high school, Ms. Jensen is revered for the standard of excellence she brought to activities for both young men and women. '"'' Although Ethel Kloberg, a former teacher, director of physical education and dean, initiated Sportsweek, it was Marie Jensen who adapted it during almost three decades of changes in society and in education. "The goal," she said, "was to initiate change without losing the essence of the program." In an interview with The Leader, she described the modifications that occured while world events as trau-

matic as the war in Vietnam and as farreaching as the women's movement took place and growing opportunities for women emerged in academics, physical education, and extracurricular teams and clubs. She describes the Sportsweek experience as one which provides the traditions "of a private school in a public school setting." Although preparation time is more compressed than' in former years,. weeklong activities still include Father/Daughter Night, Banquet and Tea Dance. The culminating Sportsnight program provides young women with opportunities for leadership, sportsmanship and athletic excellence. Ms. Jensen, who received her B.S. in physical education and M.S. in higher education from New York University along with 60 additional advanced cred-

erg ft

provide more extended coverage for more serious incidents. Not every paper does that. For some papers, a crime story is always page one; Every crime story is culled out and made a lengthy feature. Week after week of that kind of reporting takes its toll on community perception. Before long people think the com'munity is riddled with crime, in excess of that existing in each and every community. Another factor leading to community misperceptions is that residents frequently fail to attend community .meetings consistently. I am always amazed that almost the exact same questions are asked at each and every community meeting by people who seem never to have heard the questions before. I wonder why people come to one meeting, never to return to subsequent meetings, and why a different group of people come to the next meeting, never having attended before. Residents must become active in their communities, not focused simply on the one specific issue that involves something on their block. Committed participation is needed so that residents have a

clear understanding -of issues and (he developments of those issues. Too many resident's seem to feel lhat their main job as citizens is to come to one meeting, vent, demand immediate solutions and leave. Perhaps all community get-togelhers should begin with the elected official who is sponsoring the meeting asking the police representative to give a brief update on the status of crime and crime prevention in the community. This would provide much needed information. It would also eliminate numerous audience questions that contain .so much misinformation - misinformation that is frequently believed because the police representative, sitting at the dais, is not given the opportunity to publicly rebut or clarify the comments. How helpful it would he to fine-tune the opportunities we already have in meetings with public officials so that the results would be more effective. And how important it would be for community perceptions if they heard about crime from police officials who know the facts and can explain them proportionately and in context.

BFE to honor Jensen, Delaney April 17 The Baldwin Foundation for Education (BFE) will hold its Spring Fling on Saturday, April 17, from 3 p.m. to- 6 p.m. at the' Baldwin Senior High School Commons.

Which of These Costly Homeseller Mistakes Will You Make When You Sell Your Home? Freeport/Baldwin, NY According to industry experts, there are over 33 physical problems that will come under scrutiny during a home inspection. A report has been prepared which identifies the eleven most common of these problems, and what you should know about them before you list your home for sale. Whether you own an old home or a brand new one, there are a number of things that can fall short of requirements during a home inspection.

PSC OKs rate increase from page 2 the development costs which then had to be built into the rate structure. The estimated cost to complete the new combustion turbine project is $60,000,000." Power Plant 2 began commercial oo operations on April 1, which will allow a, the facility to generate electricity at a • competitive cost in the market. The village believes this facility will generate revenues for the utility and its ratepayers. The village has begun payments on the $51 million project Bond .Anticipation Notes in January 2004, W with a payment of $1 million dollars. Q "The utility "and its contractors under < W the aegis of our general contractor W [GFS] worked closely together to meet the April 1 schedule for several reasons," explained Hubert Bianco, superintendent of electric utilities. "We needed to ensure that the project operate before our peak summer season, and we needed capacity to make up for the old Power Plant 2 diesels which the [state] DEC ordered shut this January." Mr. Bianco elaborated, "The need for our independent supply of electricity became evident again on February 26 when the village's supply from NYPA and out of village sources was interrupted by a malfunction at .the LIPA/village interchange.-While power was restored in just over an hour, protecting public health and safety necessitated activating the old Power Plant 2 diesels for less than an hour," he said. Mr. Bianco said that significant regulatory changes over the past several years have added to the operational expenses of the utility. The 1999 implementation of the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) resulted in increased costs due to higher energy purchase costs. Adding to the financial demands is deregulation, which was originally "intended by federal initiatives to increase.competition and reduce energy costs. In fact, deregulation has resulted in increases in wholesale energy prices," said Mr. Bianco. According to a press release issued by Freeport Electric, wholesale energy market prices have " increased the cost of electricity purchased by the village by 30% since 1999. At the present time, the main source of energy purchased by the village is hydroelectric power supplied by the New York Power Authority (NYPA). NYPA itself has approved a 40% rate increase phased in over three years. The first year of the NYPA increase took effective May 1, 2003. Phase one of the NYPA rate increase has been folded into the village's bills as a passedthrough expense beginning in the second quarter of 2003, according to Freeport Electric. The village's contract with NYPA was also extended as part of a global settlement, which included the rate increase, with all municipal utilities in the state, and now expires in 2025. The utility said that future terms, costs and availability of this energy are not known at this time. "The village seeks to establish a rate structure now to create'better revenue flow and stabilize long term rates," said Freeport Electric in a press release. "LIPA and other utilities have also experienced significant increases 'in operating costs associated .with rising fuel costs and the price of electricity purchased from the market." "We are trying everything we can to hold rates down. We have tried to iden-

tify innovative ways to reduce our independent system operator costs, our ' energy costs, and we have aggressively negotiated contracts to get reduced costs for additional capacity," said Mr. Bianco. But residents at the January hearing called the increase "excessive," said Eileen Weaver. "I am constantly being challenged to pay out more money." "I'm getting hammered," said Ron Langdow. "I speak for the little people," said Neal Hooper "I love this town but this is getting harder and harder on my wallet." But Mr. Bianco believes that the "municipal electric system, in providing this cost effective .and reliable power has played a very significant role in the economic growth and stability of •the village." "Low cost electricity is a strong asset for businesses locating in our community and stable electric rates are critical components of the continued health of the Village economy."

Bays rejuvenate from page 7 $15,000 from the state's Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) for a project that will study in more detail why salt water marshes have eroded so quickly, which will perhaps help to explain current conditions in the bay and how to change them in the future. With the funds, the town will be able to scan and reference 650 aerial photographs documenting 75 years of change in the Hempstead estuary. The .project will produce a computer-generated random sample of 100 shoreline points to document changes. The project is expected to help discern the causes of accelerated salt marsh loss, and will implement wetland components of the Long Island South Shore Estuary Reserve Comprehensive Management Plan. "These EPF grants will help Long Island municipalities move forward

[to]...protect the beauty of their shorelines, while also expanding recreational access...and creating new economic development," said New York State Governor George Palaki of the grant. .The Village of Freeport will also realize a grant of $200,000 in which to complete a Maritime Center Action Plan for Freeport Creek, Hudson Canal and Woodcleft Canal. The grant will also help in developing a dredging and dredged material management plan for Hudson Canal, and in constructing a visitor's center to enhance the Long Island Marine Education Center. Governor Pataki added of the Freeport grant, "Long Island's waterfront areas are the heart of this region's rich maritime heritage and we are working closely with local officials and civic and environmental organizations to preserve and enhance these vibrant resources."
