Village settles housing suit Attorney General Eliot Spitzer has announced an agreement with the Village of Freeport that will result in "significant reforms to its Building Department's inspection practices and enhanced protections for Freeport residents' constitutional rights." In October, 2002, Mr. Spitzer's office filed a federal lawsuit alleging that Latino households had been subjected to wide inspections, without the residents' consent or with consent that had been obtained deceptively. The agreement with the Village of Freeport ensures compliance with the constitutional and statutory prohibitions on unreasonable and discriminatory searches and inspections while assuring public safety and building code enforcement. "This agreement recognizes that the village can enforce its housing codes and inspections in a way that treats all residents of the village fairly and with

respect for the law and the privacy of persons' homes," Mr. Spitzer said. "I am pleased that the village has agreed to continue to reform its Building Department practices in a manner that will allow it to achieve these goals lawfully." The agreement, which was approved by a federal judge earlier this month, adopts a "best practices" approach for the Building Department to conduct lawful inspections. Inspectors will obtain written permission from residents for inspections and may obtain such permission only after advising residents that they may refuse consent without fear of retaliation. Each attempted inspection will be digitally recorded and videotaped - a practice that has already been adopted by the village. (continued on page 3)

In Congress, July 4, 1776, The Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of Earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to Secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their.Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, . while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long.train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. . Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in djrect object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States... We, therefore, the Representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the . State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on. the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our Sacred Honor.

jUSt Writ©fc>yjoan dolonoy THE MEN ON THE BUS...The bus pulled up alongside our car on California Highway 101, just outside the town of Salinas, the birthplace of writer John Steinbeck. I turned my head to look upward because from my limited peripheral vision all I could see was an old school bus, painted white, with a hitch that pulled two portable toilets. As I shaded my eyes from the almost blinding setting sun in the western sky, I could see that the bus held about 25 men, seemingly of Mexican origin. Lettering on the side indicated that the vehicle was owned by a harvesting conglomerate. Finally, traffic moved, and my husband and I proceeded, as did the bus, into the town. At a corner with a large parking lot the bus stopped. The men emerged, slowly, most wearing long-sleeved shirts despite the scorching heat of the San Joaquin valley, an area described as the fruit and vegetable basket of the country. There was little conversation as they made their way home, to share a room in a dilapidated former motel, or, if they were more fortunate, in housing located in whitewashed cinder block units. Over ten days, our family's vacation in California had ranged from views of the super-luxurious to sights of some of our country's lowest paid workers. We toured the vineyards of the Sonoma and Napa Valleys where owners spare no expense to entice both the connoisseur of fine wines and the curious tourist with money to spend. Green and white signs on lawns, however, give outsiders a sense of the dichotomy that exists in this

have and have-not world. The words proclaim, "We support a living wage." South of San Francisco, it is all business - agribusiness. The John Steinbeck Cultural Center in Salinas is a tribute to the author as well as to the agricultural life of the valley which so influenced his thinking and his writing. Here we learned that despite high-tech changes in farming, the worker, generally a migrant worker, is still the backbone of the industry. Most produce is picked by hand, although the processing quickly takes place in the field employing mechanized trucks which pack and seal corrugated boxes that are then directly lifted onto larger trucks and transported around the country. In fact, when we returned to Baldwin and shopped in our local supermarkets, the strawberries and raspberries we saw were from farms located in Watsonville, the very place where we had stopped to purchase fresh fruit. The Steinbeck center is one of the most user-friendly museums I have ever visited. In interactive displays where visitors can push buttons to ask questions, we learned that some of the laborers can receive benefits if they are willing to leave their families and work in Yuma, Arizona, in the winter where crops must still be picked. For the majority, who can find work only during the lengthy, elongated California "summer," there are no benefits. The ride north and south on Route 101 takes the traveler past numerous farms. Berries are harvested in progression; usually a crop is picked within a three



week period - raspberries, blackberries, boysenberries, and something called ollalie berries, followed by the most plentiful, juicy strawberries. We passed America's artichoke capital, garlic capital and Brussels sprout capital. All the while we, viewed the workers whose backs, from a distance, resemble the gently rounded handles of old-fashioned umbrellas. From early morning till evening they are bent picking produce, lifting heavy cartons onto small trucks, or transferring those boxes onto the large tractor-trailers which circle the fields at intervals prior to driving cross country. In Salinas at almost 6 p.m., I watched these workers walk from the converted school bus. I thought of the delicious meals we had eaten during our vacation and our realization of how fresh the fruits and vegetables taste when they are served so close to the time they are picked. I thought of my delight in the wonderful vacation luxuries I had enjoyed but wondered at the range of emotions I was now feeling. I tried to analyze it all and finally decided that what I was experiencing was sadness tinged with some guilt. Like many Long Islanders who have a sense of the issue of undocumented workers, I thought I knew some of the answers. What I discovered was that I had little real understanding of the full extent of a very complicated problem. Of this, however, I am certain. Our economy could not survive- without these workers, and there is no one I

know who is vying for their jobs. The next day, at about 3 p.m. we passed a middle school in another small town. Like children everywhere, these students bolted out of the building as if they were ejected from a cannon. As my husband and I waited at a stop sign for the children to cross the street, we observed them. Of the approximately 200 children we saw, all but four seemed to be of Mexican heritage. Farther down the street, the adult center advertised summer registration for GED classes as well as computer and parenting courses. In a nearby town, we saw employees leaving a bank. There, too, the workers X) were of Mexican background, but this time they wore business clothes. Change is coming. Many of the younger generation have been born in this county. They are legal, they are citizens, and they will have high school diplomas and college degrees. Perhaps our^eal concerns, though we are reluctant to admit it, are not the laborers - the farm and service sector workers about whom we hold meetings and protests and demand legislation. Perhaps our real fear is, instead, these professionals, in their business clothes, with their legal citizenship papers and their college degrees and their future potential. Perhaps, if we are honest, it is these people and their white collar jobs that really worry us for they are our competition and the competition for our children. Change will come. That is certain. The question and the choice now for a society which professes to value fairness is how we will manage the transition.

BHS in Hofstra program Six students from Baldwin Senior High School were selected by the New York State Society of CPAs (NYSSCPA) to participate in the Career Opportunities in the Accounting Profession (COAP) residency program held from June 26-30 at Hofstra University. The students, all eleventh graders, are Obed Eugene, Mark-Anthony Gilbert, Sean Harry, Ogheneruemu Oyiborhoro, Ginelle Pennycooke, and Trivani Ramcharran. Baldwin resident and NYSSCPA member Arlene Isaacs-Lowe congratulated the students on their achievement, noting that this is the seventh year that Baldwin students have been chosen for this program. The COAP program, funded solely by donors- and sponsored by the

NYSSCPA and its Foundation for Accounting Education, centers around a week-long college residency session designed to introduce promising minority high school students to accounting and business fields. The curriculum features classes in accounting, technology, business ethics, financial analysis, college preparation, and networking skills. The course work is enhanced by field trips to local accounting firms, businesses, and government agencies where students can view the practical application of accounting skills and knowledge. This opportunity is one of many that Baldwin students can participate within the Work Experience Program at Baldwin Senior High School, coordinated by Pat Banhazl in the business department.

July 20 - What Mummies Tell Us; detective "work enabled Egyptologists to reconstruct the ancient art; Making a Modern Mummy - by his own research, Dr. Brier-mummified a human cadaver in the ancient Egyptian manner to determine how they did it. July 27 - Dynasty XIX Begins at the end of the XVIII Dynasty all three pharaohs died without children; therefore the pharaoh chosen may have been selected not for his ability but because of his heirs; Ramses II (the Great) ruled ' for 67 years and was considered one of Egypt's greatest pharaohs.

Thanks for budget vote To The Leader: As the Board of Education and the Superintendent of Schools, we extend outdeepest thanks to the Freeport community for supporting our schools in the recent budget revote. With this action by the community, we will continue to provide the opportunities our students deserve and continue to strengthen our academic program and our students' performance.^ The positive vote reinforces the importance the Freeport community places on education. We recognize and share the concerns expressed by our community regarding the tax burden borne by property owners. The schools are particularly vulnerable because we are the only unit of gcivernment for which annual voting for funding is a requirement. Please know that we are actively involved in efforts to seek equitable school finance reform in Albany by our personal efforts and through the various professional and community organizations in which we participate. We may need to ask for your assistance in encour-

aging our lawmakers and Governor to ensure that any remedy in response to the New York State Court of Appeals ruling which found the state's school funding system to be inequitable with regard with New York City, apply -also to relatively low wealth/high tax districts, such as Freeport. ' The successful budget vote makes a critical and constructive difference for our students. We appreciate and need the support of the Freeport community if we are to be successful as we proceed with the task of continuous improvement of the Freeport Public Schools. Because of your support, we can continue the momentum we have established with respect to improving student performance on State Assessments and we-promise to provide a comprehensive program of quality academics, extracurricular experiences, and athletics that our children deserve and of which we can all be proud.

Japanese Maple infested with Cottony Scale

The white sticky 'marshmallow' on the bottom of your trees' leaves are the egg Sacs of 'cottony scale'. These insects, suck juices out of leaves and stems and weaken, trees. Two closely related species attack maples, dogwoods, cherries, plums, hollies, yews, azaleas and many other plants. As they feed, the scales excrete sticky honeydew often mistaken for tree sap. Leaves on bottom branches and objects beneath infested trees turn black because a sooty mold grows on the sugary honeydew. We can control this pest with a few treatments of non-toxic horticultural oil or soap. Call for an appointment for one of our Certified Arborists to inspect your trees, for this and other potential pest problems.

Where were the police?



To The Leader: On, June 21,.two teens were shot in Freeport; a 15-year-old-former Freeport student, was shot in the head, murdered. Another teen was shot and wounded at the same place and time. They were assaulted by a "Bike Peddling Teen" who has no fear or regard for Freeport Police. This teen was so bold, he used a "bike" as a getaway vehicle and just peddled away. He knew Freeport police would not get there in time to catch him. Was he right? Where is the mainstream' press on this issue? Why haven't they investigated police patrol patterns? Where were the police? Why aren't there more patrols in the areas that have these problems? Why can't we and our children sit on a porch or walk through our neighborhood without being shot, killed, assaulted? I, as the NEFCA [Northeast Freeport Civic Association] President Bernard Smith, took the lead in community action in the Freeport shooting. NEFCA immediately printed up flyers advising the community that there was a previously, scheduled meeting of HEVN [Helping End Violence Now] with Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams, dealing with gang activity, that the people could attend. The meeting was held at the UCP Center in Roosevelt. A lot of Freeporters attended the Wednesday, June 23 meeting, They are angry and disappointed in the Freeport .police. Most of them told horror stories about their dealings with Freeport police. There were no supervisors from the Freeport police at this meeting. I have reserved a ropm at the Freeport Memorial Library for Thursday, July 8, 6 p.m., so we can have a community meeting to discuss and review these issues. I will be inviting other community leaders to assist in healing the wounds this incident has created. Our children's fears of walking through their neighbor1 hoods have been rekindled. We need to review all of violent crimes against residents and see if there is a pattern to be dealt with. Is there a particular time, day, area, age group, etc. that is causing these problems? Then take specific action to eliminate these problems. Anyone wishing to assist in this project can contact me at 524-1114. Bernard Smith, President N.E.F.C.A

FPD responds To The Leader: The safety of Freeport residents is the primary mission of the men and women of the Freeport Police Department. On the night of June 21, a patrol serge.ant and eight uniformed patrol officers were on duty. Two of these officers were assigned to separate patrol areas in northeast Freeport. The police department's Community Response Unit (CRU) also had a detective lieutenant, a detective and three police officers working in the northeast area of the village. The police officers working that night responded immediately to the shooting and were there within seconds of receiving the call. The violence in our community has its origins in a myriad of social issues which are so vast as to preclude them from being addressed in this forum. Unfortunately, once an individual has decided to commit an act of violence as reprehensible as murder, the most successful intervention requires any person with knowledge to share the information with the police beforehand. In spite of our intensive police presence in the northeast, police officers need public involvement. The vile individual who committed this violent act sought the opportunity to commit murder. • This murder was not a random but a vicious premeditated attack. Unless we as parents, community members, police officers and clergy work together to prevent children from becoming involved in drugs, alcohol, gangs and other criminal activity, and help them study academics, become involved in the various youth programs and seek employment opportunities, we will witness other senseless violence. The Freeport Police Department is involved in numerous partnerships with the Freeport schools and other community based organizations as part of a comprehensive effort to enhance child development and prevent violence. In the past seven years the overall crime rate has dropped 32%, with a more- than 5% reduction in 2003 alone. We- will continue to work with the community to reduce crimejurther. The meeting Mr. Smith refers to the UCP centers in Roosevelt was planned two months ago "in conjunction with a meeting held for Freeport residents at the Freeport Library on May 1.8 by Legislator Abrahams. The library meeting had both (continued on page 15)

lion laws "a waste." saying the important thing is to "encourage voting, not discourage it," which she believed requiring photo IDs and limiting polling places would do. , • ' a Joan Holland added that it's necessary for many peo- 63 ple with disabilities or limitations to be able to vote closest to their residences because they can no longer get to the polling place they may have registered at years ago. She said reducing the polling places could discourage them from voting. Upon hearing the multiple reactions from residents, Dr. Caltano reiterated he was glad to be raising the issue so it could finally be addressed by the board. ; Finally, Frank Camarasana took the board to task over' a poster inside a resale store that asked residents to vote > "no" on the budget. He said district teachers threatened a to boycott the store. Mr. Cam'aransana said it was insulting enough the way the board shoved the need to pass the budget down residents' throats, but "to have teachers threaten to boycott the store? I blame the board," he said. Mr. Raab responded that he had put election posters up in various locations and had been asked to lake many of them down. In his opinion, however, it didn't constitute a boycott as much as a right to freely express the request they be removed.
