ulti-family houses a growing problem by Kerry Carroll "In the wake of last month's murder of a woman at a home in East Meadow, it was discovered that the landlord illegally converted his single-family dwelling into a rooming house and rented three basement and two upstairs rooms to five individuals," said Nassau County Assessor Harvey Levinson. The press conference on illegal multifamily dwellings took place on Tuesday in front of this residence which, according to Mr. Levinson, was "the most dramatic demonstration of illegal multi-family dwellings in Nassau County." The home on Post Street in East Meadow is an extreme example of the dangers that occur as a result of illegal apartments which are becoming very common in Nassau County, he said. The safety of residents is compromised in one way because fire codes are violated, making the homes "fire traps," according to Mr. Levinson. "By the end of 2003, reports indicated

that an estimated 100,000 illegal apartments exist in Nassau and Suffolk counties," said Assessor Levinson. The violation of property taxes is another result of illegal apartments and has raised concern among not only many Nassau County residents and community groups, but is now being addressed by Mr. Levinson. "Mr. Levinson discussed every single idea and angle that the Committee Against Illegal Rentals (CATR) has been bringing to the attention of the Town of Hempstead Buildings Department for the past three years," said CAIR co-founder Bob Young. If the home in East Meadow had been. assessed as a business, its property taxes would have increased dramatically, nearly quadrupling from approximately $5,700 to $21,700, according to Mr. Levinson. Nassau County Legislator David Denenberg is highly concerned about this issue because it affects the quality of life

in Nassau County and has a direct impact gal rentals had been taken earlier. Many people who reside illegally are on the schools. Rosalie Norton, the incoming president of the West potentially sending three or four children Hempstead Civic Association, and Scott to public schools, but are'not sharing in M. Jablow of the Cathedral Gardens the taxes that are necessary to pay for the Civic Association, share Mr. Denenberg's increasing school budgets.

Never to forget — remembrance of things by Laura Schofer 04

The world is filled with ghosts. They live with us, pulling on the edges of our consciousness, reminding us that we are never really free from the past and from our memories of people we have loved. (N Memorial Day is a sad day for our famm" ily. When my son was six years old he asked to march in our hometown parade. I explained to him that while other families have barbecues and march in parades, we have a quiet day at home, thinking "i about Uncle Karl, who died from enemy Isniper fire on June 9, 1969 near Chu Lai in Vietnam. Karl Schofer was the 390th Long Island boy to die by that date. § I talked about the horrors of war and about a far-off place called Vietnam. I talked about all the young boys I had w known from high school that never came home, just like Uncle Karl, and how lucky we were that we were no longer at war. Of course, that was before either war in Iraq and even before the Berlin Wall had fallen. He seemed to listen and when I finished, he took a deep breath and asked me if I was a "communist." "No." I wanted to tell him that I believe that people are capable of finding solutions to almost every problem they face, even war. I wanted to tell him that I believe in hope. 0)

s

s

But I didn't say anything. "So can I march in the parade?" he asked. It was his father who told him, "Yes, go ahead and march." And for the next ten years he marched in Baldwin's Memorial Day Parade, either with the library or PAL or the schools, and each Memorial Day I would speak of Uncle Karl. Karl A. Schofer was born on July 24, 1949, the oldest boy in my husband's family. I never met my brother-in-law. My husband was only 14.when his brother died. But I have heard stories. Karl looked just like my husband. He liked fast cars, especially his aunt's black Corvette convertible, and fast girls. He had the name of one girl, "Zoe," tattooed on his arm but ended up marrying a "nice" girl named Donna just before he was shipped off to Vietnam. He idolized James Dean and he was very wild, very rebellious. Some family members say Karl joined up to spite his father, but others say he went to Vietnam to do the right thing for his country. Each Memorial Day I take out the only two photographs we have of my brotherin-law past his childhood. The first photograph is of a 13 or 14-year-old boy in a leather jacket, his hair in the "stylized pompadour" of the day. His aunt would set his hair, although she was sworn to

secrecy about their arrangement. The other photograph is of my bro'ther-in-Iaw in uniform with his wife. When my father-in-law died, we found Karl's flag and his medals, along with letters,to home. This Memorial Day I intend to have my son read these letters, so that he can hear his uncle's voice, one that reaches out from the past to touch him on his shoulder. I am hopeful that he will learn a lesson about war and about life. Here's what Karl wrote:

February 27,1969 "Well, how are things back home (we call it the World)? We've been getting hit pretty heavy here lately. We had two men killed and four wounded the other night. We're in our field base camp. They were on bunker line duty when the VC [Viet Cong] and NVA [North Vietnamese Army] started shooting rockets and mortar rounds in on us. The two men that got killed were on top of the bunker and the four that got wounded were in it when a rocket hit the bunker. There was nothing left to it when we got it. Most of the U.S. bases are getting hit every night. We can just about set our watch by when they hit us, it's around 12:30 at night..."

"The reason I didri^t write sooner-is because we have been out in the field on an operation for« the past 24 days and we've been moving a lot every day. We ran into a lot of trouble so far in this new area. We've had six men wounded and two men killed just in this one area. We had four men wounded the third day out. They hit a booby trap. It was a grenade with a trip wire on it across the trail. They were walking close together down the trail and hit the trip wire. Then we had a call about 10 days later that three companies of NVA had one company of our boys pinned down and we were the only company near enough to help them. By the time we got there they had killed 64 GIs out of the 114 men in the company..." In his last letter dated May 29, 1969, Karl wrote home: "We came on the hill for a five-day rest. We still pull bunker guard and details but we get hot chow and take showers and you wouldn't believe how good it is to take a shower after spending 43 days in the field.

Multi-family houses a growing problem from page 1 Kralovich of the Old Lindemere Civic Association. "By changing the classification of an offending property for taxation purposes - not only are you. hitting the violator in the pocketbook - you are restoring lost revenues 19 the tax rolls and reducing the overall tax burden on the average law-abiding property owner," concluded Assessor Levinson. The assessor is going to address this issue by first looking at the indicators and asking for cooperation from L1PA. In his press release Mr. Levinson stated that some "objective" indicators of illegal multi-family dwellings are multiple meters, several satellite dishes, separate entrances,-excessive cars on streets, and increased amounts of trash. "The residents are not the evil ones, they need a place to stay and can't afford housing, but zoning laws must be addressed," according to Mr. Levinson. He is hoping for cooperation from LIPA to inform him of multiple meters on homes, and no longer solely depend on the involvement of civic associations, which he acknowledges as being very helpful in this issue. Once notified,

Mr. Levinson would then turn in landlords for possible tax evasion to the IRS, and once identified, these landlords would be able to appeal the reclassification. The Town of Hempstead's current procedure for residents to report illegal apartments is to notify the town's Building Department or call the town's Help Line at 489-6000. Town spokesperson Susie Trenkle said the town is concerned about illegal occupancy, but needs to see a detailed copy of Mr. Levinson's proposal in order to make any further comment. Mr. Kralovich thought that someone needed to start this discussion and that Mr. Levinson did the right thing by taking the initiative. In response to that initiative, Mr. Kralovich said that it was a significant development that will begin to change the major problem of illegal rentals. "Illegal rentals are allowing some people to benefit at other community members, expense," according to Mr. Kralovich. Patricia Murphy, spokesperson for the Village of Freeport, said that Mayor William Glacken had no comment on the assessor's proposal at this time.

Terrorism jitters Last week, as military airplanes practiced for their inspiring Memorial Day weekend show of force at Jones Beach, students in a school near the shore dove for cover, and then of course" felt awkward. We all have the terrorism jitters, as a result of warnings issued recently about a possible attack inside the United States this Summer. Baby boomers will remember regular drills during the Cold War. Children were gathered in school hallways away from windows, or told to get under their desks in a "duck-andcover" drill. Their responses, if told to do so in a real attack, would have been automatic. Conceivably Londoners during "The Blitz" in World War II also remained more calm during frequent drills. Local schools also have drills now to prepare for 'all kinds of dangers. Perhaps other institutions should also have them. The Red Cross stands ready to help with disaster aid and plans. Every family should have one, it says. Beyond that we all have to go about our business, or, as they say, "The terrorists will have won."

FREEPORT LIBRARY BUILDING IS 80: Though chartered in the late 1800s, Freeport did not have a library building until 1924. To celebrate this event the library has put on display memorabilia from the library's founding including: a list of library contributors from 1920, the trowel used to lay the library's cornerstone, and a copy of the 1884 library charter signed by Melvil Dewey. The library was housed in a closet in the Grove Street School until 1911 when it was moved to a rented room in a local store. In 1920 Freeport's citizens voluntarily contributed $37,000 for a library building. Four years later, the Freeport Memorial Library was dedicated on Memorial Day and became New York State's first war memorial library.

UNSTACKED: Aided by1 heavy equipment, workers dismantle the stacks for the old Freeport Power Plant 2.

Save the spirit of the parkways State plans for Long Island transportation include widening some of the parkways whose beauty adds so much to the quality of our lives. Those plans are not yet finalized, but we hope they will attempt to conserve the spirit of the parkways, perhaps also adding some bicycle paths to the beaches. Certainly a buffer for neighboring houses needs to be maintained. Some areas deserve to be designated "forever wild" because they are natural treasures, as local activists have pointed out. There is still quite a bit of controversy over the "light rail system" that the state Department of Transportation has proposed that is in fact a quasi-bus system. The DOT promises 'to unveil a newer and better transportation plan, and hopefully this issue will be addressed. Everyone agrees we desperately need north-south routes on Long Island,, but where and at what cost? And here's a thought. Adding overpasses on Sunrise Highway might be an expense, but look at the savings in road widening needed to avoid traffic jams if the number of minutes traffic must stop along the way was reduced. And more important, at least to us, think of all the pedestrian lives saved. More commuters might leave their cars at home if it were safer to cross Sunrise Highway. They would also gain in fitness if they walked more and drove less. And, of course, this could help alleviate the parking crunch at local stations. • = Also, the recent rise in gas prices may have an effect on Long Island traffic that planners will consider as well.

EAGLE SCOUT: Mayor Bill Glacken along with Hempstead Town Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby and representatives of other elected officials congratulated Ben Gaddes? his father Richard, mother Amy, and sister Rachel at Ben's Eagle Court of Honor ceremony.

A new Eagle Scout! As most seasoned Scout leaders know, Scouting is a family affair, and nowhere is that more evident than in the Gaddes family. Ben Gaddes' grandfathers participated in Scouting as young men and encouraged him every step of the way in his pursuit of the Eagle Scout honor. At the recent Eagle Scout Court of Honor for Ben, fiis grandfather, Gene Kessler, provided a moving account of his own experiences as a Boy Scout and the Scout

leaders who were his mentors. Benjamin's father and uncle were also involved in Scouting, and they described the positive effects their participation had on them. For his final Eagle Scout project, Ben helped a group of Freeport firstgrade youngsters assemble their own hook with a story and illustrations that they wrote and drew themselves. The children each received a copy of the book and were thrilled with the results.


St. Christopher's to honor Sr. by Joan Delaney Don't use the word retirement when referring to Sister Dolores Me Laughlin, C.S.J. the principal of St. Christopher's School in Baldwin. Although concluding 50 years as an educator, including 11 years as a teacher at St. Christopher's and 24 as principal, Sister Dolores is leaving her position with eager anticipation for a future that will still include active ministry. A Sister of St. Joseph, her life has been one of service and will continue to be so. Born in Brooklyn, Sister Dolores grew up in Bushwick and attended St. Martin of Tours parish school where the Sisters of St. Joseph taught. After attendance at St. Joseph's High School, she worked in the business world. A vocation in religious life beckoned, however, and she entered the convent in 1952. Following her years of religious formation, Sister began her career in education, teaching in several schools in Brooklyn. From 1954 to 1961 she taught at Holy Name of Jesus School, where class sizes averaged 60 pupils. She subsequently taught in Visitation School in Red Hook, St. Thomas Aquinas in Brooklyn and St. Michael's in Flushing. During these busy teaching days, Sister attended St. John's University. When she arrived at St. Christopher's in 1969, she

continued her education, gaining a Master's degree and Reading Certification from the State University of New York at Albany during her summer vacations. In 1980, former principal Sister Teresa Miller announced that she would be retiring from education and beginning her work in hospital ministry at South Nassau Communities Hospital. She told Sister Dolores that she would be recommending her as principal. As a science and math teacher to sixth graders as well as a reading and religion teacher to her homeroom students, Sister was well versed in curriculum and classroom teaching. Serving as principal would open up a whole new world of responsibility. "As a teacher, you are involved with the children in your class. As a principal, you are involved in more - not only responsibility for the whole school, but involvement in families and their situations and problems." Her administrative certification prepared her for many aspects of her new role while her open-door policy involved her in the broad range of issues and concerns which involved her students, faculty and parents. During her years as principal, Sister helped guide the school through numerous changes: pre K and kindergarten classes

were started; a seventh-grade classroom was converted to a science laboratory; computer instruction was introduced; new stale standards were initiated; facilities were upgraded and rewired to accommodate technology, Spanish was included in (he curriculum; library Instruction and research were intensified. All of these educational improvements enhanced a curriculum that already included the traditional academics. But Sister Dolores makes it clear that the goals of a Catholic school are not simply that of providing an excellent academic education. "Catholic school education is something more." She speaks of a day where religion, values and morals are an integral part of the learning experience. "We begin each day with a prayer service on the intercom that includes a prayer and scripture reading. We encourage students to let us know of any special intentions and the whole school prays for them." Sister asks the teachers to pray "Grace" before and after meals and sometime during the day to lead children in a decade of the Rosary. Once a month the entire school attends Mass and once a month each grade level attends Mass. A Day of Prayer is held during Advent and Lent as children are prepared spiritually for the holy days of Christmas and Easter. Sister

CD U\

commented, "You can go anywhere lo learn math, science, etc. Our main puppose is religion and Christian living. That is why we are here." Upper grade students are buddied with children in the lower grades, particularly to help them prepare for reception of the sacrament of Holy Eucharist. "When we talk about (he environment in science classes, we say .a prayer of Thanksgiving to God for our bodies, for the earth, for the beauly of nature. We try to make religion alive in each child's life, not just on Sundays and holy days." During her 50 years in education. Sister has seen many changes. "The biggest change is that when I started, over 90 percent of mothers were able to stay at home. Now only about 10 percent are al home. That affects the family and it also affecls the school. 1 know the economic necessity of it. but I am sorry that families are not able to be together more to eat together, to pray together." She speaks of the joys of her work. "The biggest joy is the children, especially the littlest ones. They see you and (hey wave at you and they don't stop waving till you are out of sight." She is also full of praise for her teachers and staff. "They are dedicated, so dedicat(continued on page 19)

Chamber updates members by Joan Delaney Perhaps it was because it was an evening meeting, held at the elegant Jessica's Restaurant, or maybe it was the delightful entertainment by four rnembers of the Greater Nassau Chorus of the Sweet Adelines, but the Baldwin Chamber of Commerce's regular monthly meeting on May 18, a dinner rather -than the more usual lunch, was a relaxed affair that more resembled a gathering of friends than a group of business leaders. President Doris Duffy greeted the 31 members in attendance and updated them on Chamber business. Chairpeople are still needed to continue several of the Chamber's regular activities, particularly this coming year's Holiday Celebration. Director Howard Gainsburg asked for suggestions for fund raising since it does not appear that the Chamber will be able to secure the services of a carnival operator for the two events which have been the Chamber's primary means of raising money to support its activities.

Vice-President Ginny Foley will be attending the school district's School to Career Breakfast where she will honor four students from Key Club. Throughout the year, Key Club has played a significant role in assisting the Chamber in its activities. Tiffany Mitchell will be honored as the first-place winner for her flyer which helped advertise the Chamber's Easter Pancake Breakfast. Also honored will be Brian Rattan and David King. Key Club President Eric Cohn will also be recognized for his services and that of the group. Volunteers are needed to adopt the 86 planters which were placed in Baldwin last year by the Town of Hempstead. The town will replant those planters, which need supplemental plantings, and fertilize the plants, but it is hoped that residents and store owners will volunteer to water and maintain them. Those interested may contact the Chamber to volunteer. County Legislator Joseph Scannell updated residents on county affairs as well as projects in Baldwin. He promised that

the $2.7 million Milburn Pond project and restoration "should be completed in a cou. pie of weeks." In the fall, work will begin on both Silver Lake and Loft Pond's $1.7 million restoration. Both projects will maintain a natural berm as far as possible. Streetscape work in north Baldwin should begin in six weeks and ^plans are underway to continue the resurfacing of Grand Avenue from Garfield Road to the high school area. Mr. Scannell added that he has been allotted an additional $200,000 for future beautification projects and pledged to continue to focus on Grand Avenue. "That's our reflection on the world." The members of the Sweet Adelines provided toe-tapping entertainment. They

include direclor Harriette Walters, a Baldwin resident, and Sue Lietjen, Blanche Justice,'and Arlene Oberhofer. The Swee( Adelines is an internatinal group which also provides educational opportunities and training for its members, and they are available to perform for functions. Ms. Walters said that they are very interested in becoming more involved in community activities. The 85-person group practices each Tuesday from 7-JO p.m.;at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Baldwin and invites those interested in participating to join them. ' Kathy Englehardt updated members on the insurance program which will be available through the Council of Chambers of Commerce for members of Chambers.

A look at Nassau's baseball heroes By Douglas Finlay 00

<u

iQ < W _J W E H

Long Island baseball historian Robert Harrison went looking for a silver bat - and found a grave. Oh, he found a silver bat alright, donated in 1899 to a womens1 baseball sports team by Louis V. Bell, a rich man with a seat of the Stock Exchange. But it's not the one the Riverhead Historical Society asked Mr. Harrison to find. And the grave? Well, it belongs to a Long Islander buried at Greenfield Cemetery in Hempstead, who at one time had more records than Babe Ruth, of course. These' delightful tales and other Long Island baseball trivia were told by Mr. Harrison during a meeting of the Freeport Historical Society on Monday, May 17, at the Presbyterian Church. He knew, for example, that a silver ball was awarded during the Greenport Fair of 1867 to the Huntington Suffolks, which Mr. Harrison played on during its resurrection in the 1990s. "In 1873 The Huntington Suffolks went to Glen Cove to play a game, which took them practically all day to get there. When they played the game the next day there were only three of them and they had to recruit five more to play. Then, after the game, which they lost 8-6, the umpire admitted he had made two mistakes, which had cost them the game. So then Glen Cove went to Huntington and had to recruit players to play the game because.of 'bad boys from Brooklyn' known to be on the team." Everyone cheated back then, he said. If you were professional, and usually from Brooklyn, you-were strictly forbidden to play for Long Island teams. But every team would always have one or two "dazzling" players on their roster, forcing everyone to

leagues were: Calhoun's Steve Grilli, who pitched from 1975-79; Seaford High School's Peter Koegel, infielder and outfielder, from 1970-72, and Jim Norris, an outfielder who played from 1977-80 and stole 59 bases; and Mepham High School's -John Morris, who played from 1986-92. Curiously, Ken Singleton, who played over 2,000 major league games, with 1,065 runs batted in (RBIs), played for Hofstra University. Among three forgotten Freeporters were Marian Hollins, who Mr. Harrison said was considered the second greatest athlete of the 20th century. He said she began her career as a thoroughbred racer, winning the Bay Shore show in 1915. He said she then picked.up golf, winning several tornaments before starting the Womens' Gold Club in Glenwood Landing. Henry Clay Folger of coffee fame eventually came to live in Glen Cove. He was president and CEO of Standard Oil, and was an in-depth collector of the works of Shakespeare. "He had some 20,000 folders of Shakespeare's material," said Mr, Harrison. And then there was John Mongomery Ward, a hall of famer who at one time had more records than Babe Ruth, and is buried at Greenfield Cemetery in Hempstead. A noted Long Island historian, Mr. Harrison is also the author of several baseball books, poetry, and has a photo collection on the 10th floor of the Hofstra Library being shown until June 6 of 785 houses of workship in Nassau County, of which there are 40 in Freeport alone. He has yet to find that elusive second silver bat. All these players and their complete statistics can be found at www.baseballalmanac.com.

Needless to say, it He discovered in his research there are shortened his career, Mr. Harrison told three sports halls of fame on Long Island: society members. The Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame focuses One Freeporter, born in Babylon, was largely on pitchers. The Nassau Sports Leo Fishel, who pitched one game for the Commission holds a yearly dinner for high New York Giants in school sports and 1899. "He was going other Nassau league to Columbia teams. A Jewish University and was a Sports Hall of Fame good pitcher, so was in Commack conrecruited to play for centrates on Jewish the Giants that one baseball players who game," he said. "He made the big leagues played first for - as well as minor Amityville before Long Island leagues. coming to Freeport."

Baldwin Oaks meets The Baldwin Civic Oaks Association has had two meetings recently about sex offenders and other crime-related concerns. The association represents homeowners in a complex that covers both northeast Baldwin and northwest Roosevelt and is considered part of both Baldwin and South Hemsptead, as well as part of both the Baldwin and Uniondale school districts. On Tuesday, May 18, the association held an open meeting with representatives of the First Precinct's Problem Oriented Policing (POP) unit. The main goal of the meeting, according to President Jacqueline Bell, was to alert residents to the sex crimes issue as well as to an increase in daytime burglaries. "We want people to be aware and to take precautions." A subsequent meeting was held with County Legislator Kevan Abrahams because it came lo notice that a Level 3 sex offender had been released in the South Hemsptead area and there was no official notification. According to the New York State website (www.criminaljustice.state.ny.us), a level 1 offender is a person with a low risk of re-offending; a level 2 with a moderate risk and a level 3 with a high risk. Levels are also determined based on when a crime was committed in relation lo the institution of Megan's Law, which requires the registry. Ms. Dell expressed particular concern aboul the lack of notification regarding the level 3 offender in the South Hemsptead area.

As the tulips bloomed at Hofstra University, dreams of the future for students from Baldwin Senior High School took root at the sixth annual Baldwin Schools-Hofstra Shadow Day'in April. By shadowing Hofstra employees, the 32 Baldwin students learned about careers on a college campus, and at the same time, sampled a bit of college life. The day began with breakfast with the mentors in the University Club. The students were welcomed by Peter Farrell, Dean of Admissions for Hofstra. and Richard Miskiewicz, assistant principal at Baldwin Senior High School. For the next four hours, students learned about such diverse careers as groundskeeping, theater, business development, radio and television broadcasting, athletics, culinary arts, public relations, student activities, and Special events. Students and their parents returned to Hofstra in the evening for a special dinner reception. Michael Roccoforte, director of curriculum and technology for Baldwin Schools, spoke about the success of the shadowing experiences. The audience was then treated to a video of the day's events that highlighted each student and mentor.

lottoris to thio oditor Board is "doing it right" To The Leader: Congratulations to Debra McQuillan on her election to the Freeport Board of Education, and congratulations also to Michael Raab on his re-election to the board. We thank you in advance for your willingness to serve. As Alan Jay said recently in these columns, it takes a lot of time for a board member to volunteer to serve on the Board of Education here in Freeport, and do it right, and we all appreciate it and say thank you. I believe our Board of Education is doing it right, and I want to say a special thank you to Dr. Joseph Cattano who will not be continuing with the five-member Board of Education. In my opinion and those of many others, the board, including Dr. Cattano, the Administration, and all teachers have been doing an excellent job over the last two years, as we have seen a big turnaround here in the district

with improved test and achievement scores in many categories. Dr. Cattano was.part of the team on the board that was involved with that, and to him, we say thank you. I want to submit a special plea, that there be no cut in the instructional area (teacher time with students). We must not lose ground with the excellent academic progress we have started and is underway for all 8.000 (approximately) students we have. I want to also add a special thank you to our teachers. I know that pur teaching staff has been doing a great deal of volunteering of their time in such things as extra help for students, tutoring students after regular school hours, and many other things of a volunteer nature that have helped make a real difference. Again, from everyone in Freeport, I (we) say thank you, and ask that our great teachers be allowed to please keep it up. Bruce Lloyd

from page 5 ed." She speaks of the many celebrations they share together - birthdays, showers, as well as sad events - and says they try to function like a family. Speaking of the role of women in the church, she smiles. She agrees that women religious have always held leadership roles in the church - running schools and hospitals significantly before women in the secular world held many of those positions. She adds, however, "The changes of Vatican II have enabled us to have a more extensive role in the lives of individuals and family." She speaks of the support of the people of St. Christopher's, not only financially in subsidizing the cost of the paiish school, but in their concern and personal interest in its success. She is thrilled that many former graduates return. "I love to give them a tour and they love to see the classrooms they had and are surprised by all the advances." In addition to her professional roles, Sister has also played a part in the life of the parish. She serves on the Liturgy Committee and Ministry of Consolation and. is a Eucharislic Minister. In July during the parish's annual feast, she is an active and vocal booth captain, urging attendees to try their luck on the 50/50 chances. Sister also has responsibilities within her religious order, taking her turn in the convent for household chores and cooking. Speaking of the future, Sister says that she is still considering "a wide spectrum of choices." Interestingly, Sister's service of 24 years as principal and 11 years as a teacher makes her the longest-serving educator in the community, providing a continuity of perspective and experience unlike any other. Also, as many other religious leaders in the community are transferred or move away for other positions, she has remained as a visible and dedicated role model of service. St. Christopher's parish has made plans to honor Sister with special prayers at the 11 a.m. Mass on Sunday, June 6. A reception in the lower church will follow. The invitation to parishioners reads, "Please join us as we express our love, appreciation, and best wishes to Sister Dolores McLaughlin C.S.J. as she. leaves St. Christopher's School and ventures on the next step of her journey in God's service."

Never to forget from page 2 1970 4-4-2 Oldsmobile convertible would cost with a four speed on the floor, 350 hp., AM radio, tinted windshield, disc brakes'? They say you save $500 to $ 1.000 if you buy one over here and if you can get a price for hie I can check it out." In the same letter he writes, "It was about 120 degrees today and we had a few people pass out from the heat but they're okay. Well Dad, there's not much more to tell you except that I'm sick of seeing my friends getting hurt and killed for nothing. I want to come home." Karl came home in a box, like so many of our boys in the Summer of 1969. He was just a few weeks shy of his 20th birthday. I know that I will not support any legislation to reinstate the draft. I will not send my son or daughter to Iraq, nor will I ask my neighbors to send their children to fight another war we cannot win. Monday is Memorial Day. Besides waving flags, perhaps we should think about all that we have lost, all those wonderful possibilities that come with youth and talent. All those boys (and girls) who never had a chance to live their lives and bring something good and positive into the world. May our boys and girls in Iraq and other parts of the world come home safely. May those who have been lost not be forgotten. This Memorial Day, let's reflect upon hope and human potential. In a letter, written by Lloyd B. Ramsey, Major General of the United States Army, to my father-in law. he said that "when this vast and most cruel war is over and we have established a more generous and just world than this, perhaps we will all take comfort in the thought that your son was one of the men who made that world possible." I'm still wailing for that world. How about you?
