A number of varsity athletes were recognized at the Thirty- Seventh Annual Honors Program at Freeport High School. The Adelaide Aims Memorial Award was given by Wendy Aims Rowe and her husband and daughter in memory of her mother, Adelaide Aims (Class of '43). Rebecca Callahan met the criteria of being a worthy senior who maintained a high scholastic average and showed great athletic ability. Rebecca graduated eighth in the Class of 2005, played varsity volleyball and softball and served as a member of the Captains and Leaders Club, National Honor Society and peer tutoring groups. She earned All Division status in softball and was chosen Student of the Month by the Rotary Club. She will enter Utica College in the fall. Daniel Okobi, the Class of 2005's valedictorian, was awarded the Jerry Bagatelle Scholar-Athlete Award. This scholarship was given in memory of Jerry Bagatelle, one of the co-founders and president for nine years of the Fathers and Boosters Club at FHS by his son and wife. Danny will be

entering Harvard University in September. A member of the varsity tennis team for four years, he is a National Merit Finalist, member of the National Honor Society, and a peer tutor. A true Renaissance man, he is also involved with the Select Chorale, Sinfonetta and Marching Band. Thomas Cheska was an English teacher, lacrosse coach and football coach at FHS from 1969 until his death from cancer at age 43 in 1989. As a teacher and coach, he had a great rapport with children of all ages. Esther Lopez and Cassandra Medard were the two recipients of this scholarship. Esther served as president of the Class of 2005, president of the National Honor Society and as a peer tutor. She was a cocaptain of the girls varsity lacrosse team and will be attending Columbia University in the fall. She is graduating fifth in the class and was part of the winning Long Island Challenge Team. Cassandra was the unsung heroine on the girls' lacrosse team and an active.member of the winter track and soccer teams. Three varsity letters have earned her a spot on the Ironman Wall. A member of the National Honor Society and a peer tutor, Cassandra will be attending Syracuse University in September. She is graduating tenth in the Class of 2005. (continued on page 2)

Village deals with block parties, advertising bids by Jim Golding Most of the village trustees' business on Monday concerned approval of requests for block parties and advertising for bids for services or equipment. The board also approved the annual agreement with Hofstra University for the August 11-13 visit of the U.S. Naval Academy midshipmen, including

approval of about $5,000 for room and board and of a hold harmless agreement in lieu of insurance for the use of dormitory space. Trustees approved an agreement with the U.S. Geological Survey for the operation and maintenance of a tide stage gage with telephone and satellite telemetry at Hudson Bay at a cost of

Books 'FT Her! The old adage has it that 'There's no such thing as a free lunch." In June, however, the Archer Street School in Freeport, with the help of an 11-year-old sixth-grader, showed that there is, indeed, such as thing as free books. As part of her bat mitzvah—the occasion in the Jewish religion when a girl turns 12—Stephanie Stein of the Hebrew Academy of Five Towns and Rockaway decided to perform community service by donating books to Archer Street Elementary School children. Writing to publishers and authors for donations, she obtained more than 1,800 books and on June 17, delivered all the books to the school for distribution. "Stephanie has been coming to

our class since the beginning of the term," said second grade teacher Gwen Garland; "She reads to the children and talks to them every Friday afternoon." Originally, Stephanie had planned simply to donate books to the class she was visiting. As the donations began to pile up, however, she realized she could expand her vision. "I had so many books I realized that every student in the school could receive a book or even more than one book," she said. Stephanie said that the books continue to come in and she will use them in the program she intends to continue in the new school year.

Lunch For a Bunch of Seniors Lunch for a Bunch of Seniors, the seniors' group at the All Saints' Episcipol Church, 2375 Harrison Avenue, Baldwin, will enjoy a summer outing to Greenport on Tuesday, July 26.'

Not again! Claire Townsend was having one of those mornings when nothing goes right...it seems. Since it was raining, she planned to take the "tube" to her job in London's Russell Square, but signs at the Finchley Road stop said there were technical difficulties. So she ran back home for her bicycle and managed to get to work, although late. Now, i,f it had been a sunny day, she would have been on time, except that on her schedule she would have been close by the-doubledecker bus that exploded Thursday at Tavistock Square. We all.know the rest of the story, the hundreds of families like Claire's that made frantic calls, and the hundreds of others that faced much, much worse news. New York City, Madrid, Moscow, now London, where will it end? Once again terrorists struck right in the middle of the morning-commute, affecting thousands of Claire Townsends - many of whom never made it home. The leaders at the G-8 meeting in Scotland are on their way to achieve economic justice. Their efforts will make it harder for terrorists to recruit more young people willing to do evil in their misguided view that they can change the world. They can only spread misery this way. Meanwhile, we citizens and our governments must be vigilant to protect ourselves. We cannot let down our guard - ever.

JUSt WTit© Eov loan dolano WRITERS, WRITING, and BOOKS ...Our family vacation this year to San Francisco and the wine country just north of that fabulous city introduced me to details about the lives of two particularly creative people - Jack London and the incomparable Charles S'chultz, the creator of the "Peanuts" cartoons. The museums honoring each of them are quite different, but there are several qualities which these great talents had in common. Both had a prodigious output; both approached writing very seriously, and both met deadlines. The very modern Charles Schultz Museum is located in Santa Rosa, just next to the ice arena he had built for the town. Every Tuesday evening, he skated in an ice hockey league, and each day, he ate breakfast and lunch at the Warm Puppy Cafe which overlooks the ice rink. The museum itself reflects the man and the legacy of work which survives him 50 years of cartoons. These comic strips magnificently represent the insecurities of mankind through sijch characters as Charlie Brown, Linus; Lucy, Schroeder, and of course Snoopy, as well as through the "devices" he created, like the Great Pumpkin, the red-haired girl, the kite-eating tree, Schroeder's music, Linus' blanket, Lucy's psychiatry booth, Snoopy's doghouse, and numerous football and baseball games. Perhaps his own lifelong struggle with depression sensitized Schultz to this

But all those efforts, all that research, and all the truths they may contain, in my opinion, take a back seat to the impact of H X one artist whom his friends called m "Sparky." With a few deceptively simple lines and curves and sometimes with no dialogue at all. Charles Schultz captured o the essence of the struggling human spirit. m Never deprecating his work, but also never exaggerating Ihe extent of his talents, he described his art in simple, yet profound terms. His comments cannot help but strike a chord with every person who attempts to create and especially with those whose work requires that they create something new on an ongoing basis. "A cartoonist," he said, "is someone who has to draw the. same thing every clay without repeating himself." Charles "Sparky" Schulz, describing great art. noted. "I subscribe to the theory that only a creation thai speaks to succeeding generations can truly be labeled art." How much of what we see and read and write today will meet that high standard?

Assistant Superintendent Ed Cigna resigns by Joan Delaney The Baldwin Board of Education accepted the resignation of Ed Cigna, Baldwin's assistant superintendent for business and administralion, for "purposes of relirement" at its July 6 meeting. In later comments to The Leader, Mr. Cigna, who came to Baldwin two years ago, explained his future plans. He said, "I regret that my time in Baldwin was so short and certainly did not intend to draw it to a close so soon, but the opportunity is now. and may not come again, or may come at a time (hat we are not in

a position to take advantage." The opportunity he is referring to, for both him and his wife who is a scientist, is at a small private school in Poughkeepsie, closer to his family and new grandson. He noted, "I will be able to teach as well as manage the business functions of the school. I can also help teachers by assisting them in staff development in instruction-

Start budgeting now

There must be a broad representation of all Freeport if these committees are going to have any credibility at all. Currently, I think there are too many "yes - rubber stamp" people on these budget planning committees, and that is no good. These committees are going to have to have credibility if the budgeting process is going to have any credibility at all with the community. Further, I suggest there should be a . way for the community to hear directly from these committees without its being filtered first through the board. Currently, I feel they are not allowed enough independent thinking, and are really just rubber-stamping whatever the administration and the board are saying. Let me follow through on some excellent recent comments by our Deputy Superintendent of Schools Kishore Kuncham, and the recent president of our Board of Education, Dr. Joseph Cattano, comments from each which are absolutely correct and have received far less attention than they should have. Each reminded us that the state and federal government had always been involved with supplementing our school budget here in Freeport, and for that matter throughout New York State and throughout the country; but that has severely changed since 2000 when this far-right radical government took over in Washington, D.C. They rammed through massive tax cuts for the rich, deliberately misled us about the need to invade Iraq where we. now have over 1,700 Americans who have died in a war that we didn't have to fight, and many thousands injured and many injured permanently for life, and a

To the Leader: The school budget passed. That was good. We must keep the progress underway, as our school system continues its excellent program of continuing improvement and strives for excellence. The system in place now is working. We understand that the challenges we have in our Freeport school system are far reaching, deep, and manifold, but in my opinion and others I talk with, our Board of Education, administration, and teaching staff throughout all our schools know the challenges we have and have a plan to deal with it. The results we're getting show that. We have to keep that going forward. The bad news is the big, unexpected tax hike increase. I see numbers in the area of $450 to $500 for each homeowner for the upcoming tax year. I repeat, that is the increase beyond the current year. That comes as a jolt to all of us and it should. That jump was unexpected. Continuing, let me urge our Board of Education, starting right now, to start planning now for the following year's budget on how to do more with less. I urge the board, examine these citizen budget review committees we have now, which are an excellent idea, but I think we need to broaden their makeup. We need to see people on there beyond PTA (Parent Teacher Association) members. There must be a broad ethnic representation, people who don't have children in the school system, business owners because they pay taxes, too, retired homeowners, people on disability, etc.

war where the cost is now over three hundred billion dollars. The tragic stories keep coming out of Washington every day. All of us here in Freeport must pour out to the polls in 2006 and 2008, and make sure we elect new people down there in Washington and up in Albany, that will only do one thing - bring common- sense to the job of governance. That is all we ask for. Fortunately we have two great U.S. Senators from New York representing us, and we all had enough sense to elect Tom Suozzi as our chief executive officer here in Nassau County, and Mr. Suozzi has been doing an excellent job in restoring order to our budgeting process here and other matters. The reason I am urging our school district start immediately on the following year budgeting matter now is because we will have this same problem next year, and we should plan ahead. The radical right wing government will still be in control in Washington. Unless we start our planning now, the Freeport voters next May, 2006 may very well just say "no" to everything on school budgeting matters, and if that happens, our school district will then have our budget dictated to us by statute. If that happens, there could then be the

unthinkable, where our school system could start a regression to the past, and those problems of poor performance of the past that we all remember. Let me close with some very disturbing pertinent education budgeting facts. This pertains to the Bush proposed budget for 2006. George W. Bush made a major deal about his "No Child Left Behind Act" that was passed in 2002. For the 2006 budget, President Bush is under-funding his own program by one billion dollars in New York State alone, and this calculates to 296,648 children in New York State who will go without needed help in reading and math, (reference: National Priorities Project, Feb. 14). In addition, Bush's 2006 budget will cut off after-school programs for 166,362 New York State children. (N.P.P. 2/14/05). Further, the Bush budget plans to completely eliminate the $225 million Even Start program, a literacy program designed to increase academic achievement of young children and their parents by helping them to learn together. (Associated Press, 2/6/05). Until we can send some new people to Washington and Albany, we are stuck' with the above facts, and I ask our Board of Education to work with all Freeport (continued on page 11)

Baldwin board starts a new year by Joan Delaney Formally installed Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robert Britto ^nd newly elected board member Anne Hannon got their first official look at the wide range of issues facing the Baldwin School District at the two-part school board meeting held on July 6. The first portion, described as the "reorganizational" meeting, included mandated annual appointments of staff to various sensitive positions involving finance, safety, and personnel as well as numerous compliance functions. James Scannell was re-elected by his fellow board members to serve as president of the board and Mary Jo O'Hagan was elected vice-president. After these and other "housekeeping" items requiring annual review were concluded, the first controversial issue of the new school year became obvious with an unusual presentation by Guy Page of H2M, the school district's architects and consultants for the 2004 capital improvement bond. He presented an overview of the initial bond issue plans to upgrade the interior traffic and exterior exit of the high school's 600 building in order to eliminate congestion and improve egress. Despite numerous pre-bond hearings and the input of a community facilities committee, only now have the consultants realized that safety and efficiency require that the project be expanded beyond the initial parameters. "Thai's a costly 'oops'," noted resident Deidre Bamberg-Oriani, referring to the projected $571,300 price tag rather than the original $125,000 estimate. Board member Mary Jo O'Hagan expressed the restrained annoyance of the board saying, "We are somewhat surprised that it was not anticipated. We are not arguing that it appears to make sense; the disappointment on the part of the board is the timing." Mr. Page is suggesting that a wall be constructed, along with a sidewalk, leading from the 600 exit to the nearby (continued on page 15)

vehicular and pedestrian functions. Ms. Oriano called the three-foot wall topped by a four-foot fence as "prison-like." Resident Sarah Rafalowitz, who ran for election to the board, warned about the possibility of students being stuck within the contained area in case of bullying or problems. Mr. Scannell noted, "Mr. Page has heard our concerns." It appears that an improved design will be required. Commenting on the reconfiguration of the parking fields and possible problems discovered when that surface is disturbed, board member B.A. Schoen, in not-so-veiled comments, told Mr. Page, "We'd hate to be disappointed twice." Responding to an audience question concerning the new superintendent's plans and vision for the district, Mr. Scannell said that the board and Dr. Britto would be having a "retreat" next week to discuss those issues in the light of the characteristics and issues raised by focus groups prior to the selection of the superintendent. Stressing that the board strives to be "deliberate" but also noting that it does outline specific annual goals, Mr. Scannell said, "We will be listening to the impressions of the superintendent... we will prioritize... We'll be folding them [the superintendent's ideas and initiatives] into our goals for the school year." Responding to another question regarding the varying sizes and capacity of the elementary schools, it was explained that the schools developed as neighborhood schools as homes were built. Mr. Schoen, the historian of the board, noted that the property for Milburn School,"the district's smallest school, was donated to the district by the builder of the homes in that area. Meadow School, the largest school, on the other hand, is on landfill and was built when the entire harbor area was developed. In comments, further explained almost as soon as they were uttered,:Mr. Scannell said, "In the longest term, the community will have to look at that issue because we're operating close to capacity." He then added, "In the very longest term.... not this year, not five years, in the very, very longest term."

Ed Cigna resigns from page 5 for business. During his public comments at the recent retirement dinner for former Superintendent Kathy Weiss, Dr. Chapman, who retired a year ago, jokingly prefaced his remarks by saying, "I'm not coming back." Later, in speaking to The Leader, he spoke of family vacation and retirement plans, but added, "If they need me, I'll help out." The board did not announce the process it will use to replace Mr. Cigna. Whoever assumes the position will be asked to manage a department with a clean record of financial accountability. The district has long had both independent external auditors who oversee the overall finances and financial management plan of the district. These auditors prepare annual reports for the New York State Department of Education and publicly report on the financial status of the district to both the board and the community at public meetings. In addition, independent "internal" auditors are in the district sev-

eral times a week overseeing the district's day-to-day finances and accounting processes. These auditors review invoices, bills, and expenses and verify the delivery of materials and the completion of services. A recent audit by New York State Comptroller Alan Hevesi showed the district to be in excellent fiscal condition and following approved accounting practices and financial mangagement. The only minor recommendations included updating a few policies, whose procedures were already in place, and creating written policies for several mundane activities such as serving refreshments at several board and district functions and the use of cell phones. Referring to his residency in the community as well as his work in the school district, Mr. Cigna described Baldwin as a community that "draws its strength from its diversity...primarily using its own resources where other communities have come to depend on others to do for them." He called the school district a "celebration of that success."
