FHS GRIDIRON ALUMNUS FUNDS WEIGHT ROOM Thank you, Morion Greenwood! Those are the. words on the lips of Freeport High School athletes . as practice sessions begin for the fall sports season. Mr. Greenwood is a former FHS football star who went pro, and while students are thanking him, he's thanking Freeport High School. Now a linebacker with the NFL's Houston Texans who spent four seasons with the Miami Dolphins, he said he wanted to give back to the,community and school that helped him become so successful. So, he donated $35,000 for a weight room with rows of shiny new weight machines located* in the basement of the high school, where the Red Devils are already working out in preparation for the new season.

She graduated from Fashion Institute of Technology in 1980 with a degree in photography and began her career as a wedding, fashion, portrait and illustrative photographer, which continues to this day. She opened her own wedding, portrait and fashion photography studio, Lady Kat Photography In Freeport, fifteen years ago.

The Climb Dr. George Caso, who served as devoted physician to so many area families in years past, has not been idle in retirement. He dropped by this newspaper office recently with yet another of the novels he has written in retirement, a mystery, titled "The Climb." A medical doctor dispenses advice that encompasses both physical and mental health. For example, he can point out. that,a proper diet can prevent all .sorts of conditions, jncludr ing fatal illnesses. He can try to instill an upbeat, positive outlook to help his patients deal with the curveballs that life can pitch at you. But with a heavy patient load, the momentsfor trying to effect such important lifestyle changes are fleeting. In Dr. Case's latest book, "The Climb," he tries to make the point-that a little "aggressiveness" or spirit is important to achieving success in life. In other words,.there is a lesson enveloped in an entertaining" story. Perhaps some reader, somewhere, will be inspired to "take this medicine" and be a little braver. Dr. Caso already has a fan club among his former patients. But others also might enjoy reading'his stories, and we hope he will keep writing them. Over the years; Dr. George Caso, like his daughter, Dr. Gina Caso, who has offices in Freeport, has saved so many lives, and helped so many families on the path to health and happiness. Medicine is a noble profession. The same can be said of writing when the aims are for good.

Taken for granted? Is the fact that the lights, computers and air conditioner stay on in the midst of sweltering hot summer days being taken for granted? Well, not by us. We appreciate that our LIRA and Freeport Electric utilities have been working hard to respond to any local outages, and more importantly to prepare the infrastructure and secure the necessary supply. For some people with certain medical conditions, being without electricity for even a short time can be a life-or-death concern. For some businesses temporary loss of power can be an economic death sentence. We look with real hope towards.a future when fuel cells can be developed that allow smaller users to have a certain security and also even to share unneeded units of electricity. And we are glad that LIPA, under the leadership of chairman Richard Kessel. is one of the farsighted utilities working on that.

Don't forget to conserve electricity!

ILJSt writ© tov ioan dolan©' READING TEA LEAVES...Politicians read election results the way fortune tellers read tea leaves. They analyze, come to conclusions, and then they try to form strategies for future campaigns. What should Nass'au County and Town of Hempstead politicians be thinking after the results of the election for commissioner in. Sanitary District Numher Two? The facts of the situation are ohvious. Jerry Brown jwon and LauraMallay lost. In fact, Jerry Brown Won big. The logical question to ask is why, and because it's politics, who will take the credit and who will take the blame? The fault, according to my tea leaves, wasn't only Laura Mallay's. She was simply the candidate of record running against Jerry Brown. After several weeks of observing the politi-

cal maneuvers, it would seem that County Assessor Harvey Levinson, who intends to run against incumbent Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray in November, was the problem. His behind-the-scenes and not-so behind-the-scenes strategies were faulty and his implementation of those strategies was even worse. Local elections, whether they be for school board, library board, fire or sanitation districts, have always been just that, local. Traditionally, candidates have never identified themselves by 'any party affiliation. For the voters, the choice has always been between "us" and "us." 'Harvey Levinson'wasn't "us" in this election. He and his party's resources had no business there. Mr. Levinson too obviously inserted himself and bigtime partisan politics into a local elec-

runners are on second and third base -and first base is empty. It's hard to figure. ! Additionally, proposing a plan thai many believe would cut the jobs of many of the rank and file in a commu- OQ nity where that rank and file live and cn vote, as do their parents, siblings and friends, also seems questionable. to Voters don't like seeing one of their own attacked. They don't like being manipulated. They want real issues addressed . and achieveahle solutions m proposed to solve problems in a timely manner. Mr. Levinson should reassess his strategy and try a different approach as he continues his own campaign. Meanwhile, he can't pretend that the loss of this election for commissioner of Sanitary District Number Two was only Laura Mallay's.

tion, and he did it in a heavy-handed manner. But that wasn't the main problem. The real problem is that he didn't implement his big-time politics with big-time know-how. He didn't do his homework. If you are going to go onto foreign turf, you should know the players. Why in the world would your strategy he one that is premised on first defeating one of Baldwin's favorite sons? Jerry Brown has been the go-to guy in Baldwin for years. He comes from a family of well-known volunteers. He is viewed as one of the good guys. In baseball parlance, attacking Jerry Brown in Baldwin, even if that attack is indirect,- is like criticizing Derek Jeter in Yankee Stadium. The tactics of that faulty strategy is akin to choosing to pitch to Ted Williams when



Jerry Brown wins big by Joan Delaney

By a vote of 1282 to 633, Baldwinite Gerard (Jerry) Brown, running against South Hempstead resident Laura Mallay, was re-elected commissioner of Sanitary District Number Two at the election held on July 28. He received 1,136 votes in Baldwin, 93 in South Hempstead and 53 in Roosevelt where Ms. Mallay received 346, 208 and 79 voles respectively. Sanitary District Number Two encompasses the three communities. •Surrounded by family, Jerry friends and supporters, Mr. Brown heard the election results at Sanitation Headquarters where he thanked everyone for their hard work and support. The campaign became particularly contentious with the involvement of County Assessor Harvey Levinson who is running against Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray.

Mr. Levinson has made the elimination of special taxing districts, like Sanitary District Number Two, an issue in his campaign. Additionally, Comptroller Howard Weitzman has conducted selective audits of sanitary districts. Wearing a "Commish" baseball cap, Mr. Brown thanked his supporters and noted, "People weren't fooled. We didn't let outsiders take things away from us. I'm not talking about . Laura Mallay." Democratic County Legislator Joseph Scanned was present to Brown observe the count. He has had several highly publicized differences of opinion with County Executive Thomas Suozzi over issues affecting the fifth legislative district this past year. A long-time supporter of Mr. Brown, Mr. Scannell noted, "It's a loss for Laura Mallay, a loss for Harvey Levinson, but

a victory for the people of Baldwin against outside influence." Then, Mr. Scannell officially swore in Mr. Brown for his new five year term of office. The sanitary district election, which is usually quiet, was particularly contentious, with Mr. Levinson holding press conferences in front of sanitation headquarters and with coverage by daily media. During the period of voting, police were called to several polling locations. Also, the sanitary district was quickly served with a subpoena regarding a letter it sent to residents correcting "mis-

leading and. in some instances, downright false information (that) has been distributed throughout the District." Secretary to the Board of Commissioners Bob Noble indicated that the district is being questioned on their letter which was mailed to residents in Baldwin and Roosevelt, which have their own post offices, but hand delivered to residents who live in South Hempstead and on. certain isolated streets in other post office jurisdictions covered by the sanitary district by sanitation workers during work hours.

Denenberg holds LIRR forum at the library by Jim Golding There were plenty of complaints about the Long Island Rail Road hut they came from a small numher of people attending last Thursday's community meeting sponsored by County Legislator David Denenberg at the Freeport Library. The cleanliness of Freeport's and other communities' stations topped the list of problems expressed to two LIRR officials at the meeting. "It's not possible that Freeport has such a dirty place, and that people sleep under the sleps." said Mary Myhre. one of only four who attended. She also complained about frequent escalator breakdowns and the filthy condition of the elevator. Mr. Denenberg, who regularly meets with a commuter group and the LIRR Babylon branch manager and local station manager, said "Cleanliness is always an issue" at Freeport and the other stations in his district, Merrick, Bellmore and Wanlagh. Cleanliness problems include urination on the platform, the elevator and waiting room, and pigeon droppings. Nancy Greer. assistant general manager of passenger services, said the Freeport station receives a power washing once a month, but not on the platform because of the presence of the nearby third rail, which presents a safety hazard. She added that plans call for thoroughly washing the platform because "urine is getting into the concrete." Mr. Denenberg said he had been told by station manager Raymond Powers that the procedure, involving a highpressure spray, was clone every two weeks, but he added. "If we gel (power wash cleaning) once a month I'd be surprised." Ms. Greer said the extra bus traffic in summer along with regular customer traffic makes station cleanup "difficult to keep up with," but added that "the Freeport station gets routine cleaning more than other stations." "Freeporl becomes a major transportation hub in the summer with the beach traffic." added Peter Palamaro, manager of government and community affairs for llie LIRR. Ms. Greer said the Freeport station is cleaned four times a day and an additional five hours are added on Saturday during the summer for cleaning later in the day. She noted the Wantagh. Bellmore and Merrick stations are cleaned two times a day, Monday through Friday, and once a day on weekends. Power washing is done once a month on concrete surfaces from November. Daily routine cleanings include emptying trash bins, sweeping the platforms and washing handrails. Mr. Denenhcrg said he was given the impression by the station manager that the stations are cleaned more frequently than twice a day and asked that the specific number of cleanings be provided at his next community meeting in August, which will continue the discussion of the LJRR's service.

Freeport doesn't have a problem with pigeon droppings." Referring to pigeon droppings on the stairway handrails in Merrick, Alex Johnson of Merrick stated, "It's disgusting. You can't touch that handrail without immediately going to wash your hands. It's a public health nuisance." He also said a recording of a pigeon hawk intended to scare away the birds "doesn't do a thing." "We spend thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars on pigeon control," said Ms. Greer. "These animals adapt. They are the most adaptable birds," and workers have used "hundreds of products" to try to control them. She noted that a red hawk recently moved into the Valley Stream area and the station there "has no pigeon problem now." Mr. Palamaro added that "We can't wantonly harm these animals. We are using the most effective product for pigeon control, but it has not been very effective."


Comparison with other stations Ms. Felicetti said she hoped Freeport would have a waiting room "that looks the same as Rockvillc Centre's, appar(continued on page 15)

Waiting for waiting rooms Grace Felicetti of Freeport asked if the station will have a new waiting room to replace the current structure with its strong urine odor. It is locked during warm weather. Mr. Denenberg added thai the upstairs waiting room in Freeport is "non-existent" while the downstairs waiting rooms in Freeporl and Wantagh "are-not even usable." Ms. Greer agreed about thefilthyconditions of the Freeport station, saying il is "used as a bathroom." But she noted that, in winter, extra effort is made to clean the platform waiting room and the downstairs wailing room is left unlocked at night. "Not everyone treats the waiting room wilh dignity and respect," she said. Mr. Palamaro added that the problem is common to all elevated stations. He also said thai keeping llie wailing

Freeport trustees award Guy Lombardo improvement contract by Jim Golding Village trustees awarded a $5.18 million contract for the Guy Lombardo Avenue Improvement Project to Peter Scalamandre & Sons Inc. of Freeport at their August 1 meeting. The cost will be paid by Nassau County, since the segment of the route to be reconstructed, between Sunrise Highway and Ray Street, is a county road. To a question from Kenneth Bagatelle on the project timetable and whether construction would be completed . by winter, Public Works Director Louis DiGrazia said a timetable was not yet known, but the project is expected to take up to 18 months. "We've waited 11 years for this and work should begin as soon as possible," said Mayor William F. Glacken. Mr. DiGrazia said the project will involve the "total reconstruction" of the roadway, including drainage and curbs. Total cost of the work will be about $6.2 million. During the trustees' formal vote to approve the contract, board member Don Miller praised the public works director and the mayor for "overcoming obstacles" to the project.

Other actions Trustees approved a resolution to transfer about $850,115 in the 2004-05 budget to various accounts in the village budget. To questions from Mr. Bagatelle and Fran Trani, the mayor responded that the action was "normal housekeeping to close out the books for the year" and is a routine annual procedure. He said the amounts transferred to accounts receiving funds would be available "when the audit is complete." Ms. Trani asked if the money would be transferred to all accounts and was told they would go only to those needing to be balanced. The board also approved a resolution authorizing an emergency contract for the replacement or reconstruction of the condenser unit at the Recreation Center ice skating rink, and voted to advertise for bids for the Colony Park area road improvement project. Two block party requests received approval: for Grace DiGrazia on

Norton Street August 13, 4-10 p.m., and for Betsy Froehling on Grant Street August 14, 3-9 p.m.

Public comments Mr. Bagatelle started to ask for "an accounting of the enforcement of ordinances and fines" relating to the trimming of hedges near intersections, but Mayor Glacken quickly interrupted him, repeating "We're not doing this" and said more serious issues should be presented. "It's not really something we discuss in public comments. We're here to discuss serious issues," he emphasized, citing as examples downtown improvements, the power plant and other topics. The mayor added that the Building Department "responds to complaints about high hedges." Mr. Bagatelle asked whether violations regarding service stations' treatment of handicapped customers would be an appropriate topic, to which Mr. Glacken suggested he give specific complaints to the Building Department. Mr. Bagatelle also raised the issue of bus shelters for which community development funds have been appropriated. "I haven't seen a bus shelter built in the last eight years," he said. The mayor responded that funds are being accumulated "for the downtown revitalization project" and that bus shelters would be installed after its completion. He said plans call for placing them along several busy streets, including Guy Lombardo Avenue, Henry Street, Ocean Avenue and Church Street. "Where .we can put them in, we'll put them in," said Mayor Glacken. "There's no point in putting in a shelter when the streets are torn up." Mr. Bagatelle responded that "For those people using public transportation, it's-an important issue." Dr. Al Renken, former board president of the Freeport School District, followed up on a presentation he made recently petitioning the board to name the Cleveland Avenue practice field in honor of former Freeport Athletic Director Bill Ashley, who established a winning tradition in the high school's athletic program. Mayor Glacken replied, "We expect

it," but did not give a definite date for the request to be approved. Reacting to the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling that allowed the city of New London, Connecticut, to exercise its right of eminent domain in condemning private residences to allow for the development of higher tax-producing commercial developments,

A victory in the gang wars Nassau County District Attorney Denis Dillon announced today that lie would like to congratulate the United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern in District of New York for the federal 8 racketeering conviction yesterday "of 01 two MS-13 members. Mr. Dillon also hailed the jury's finding (hat MS-13 is a OD racketeering enterprise under federal law. "Nassau County originally prosecuted the convicted defendants. Edwin -a t/3 U. Castro and David Vasqutv.. in Nassau County for the acts on which the federI al jury convicted them." said Mr. "In fact. Castro pled g u i l t y in uu Dillon. Q Nassau County to Attempted Assault in the First Degree and was sentenced to five years in stale prison for his particiw pation in two drive by shootings. X Vasquez was charged by a 13-counl H Nassau indictment for three attempted murders. "Working in cooperation with the Long Island Gang Task Force we developed information on the activities of MS-13 that showed a sufficient structure to their activities to qualify for racketeering prosecution under federal statutes." lie continued. "I decided to <u


refer these defendants and 13 others to federal prosecutors in the hope that the use of the more severe federal racketeering statutes would have a greater impact on the MS-13 organization. As a result of this verdict. Vasquez and Castro now face a possibility of a life sentence and at least a mandatory m i n i m u m sentence of 90 years incarceration. "In February, 2004, the United States Attorney and I announced the arrests of 15 MS-13 members from Nassau County," Mr. Dillon added. "Vasquez and Castro were among those defendants. In that press release I said that these arrests 'demonstrate the longstanding commitment of law enforcement on Long Island to direct the full arsenal of investigative and prosecutorial weapons toward gang members who commit acts of violence. The message should be clear: if you commit violence in the name of a gang, you will pay a very heavy price.' Yesterday's verdict validated that statement. "I will continue to work aggressively with the United States Attorney and our partners in the Long Island Gang Task Force to investigate and prosecute gang activity," Dillon concluded.

New FHS principal from page 3 target areas we need to accelerate and (X make major improvements. We also will have a guidance plan. The guidance department used to be isolated hut I want to bring guidance into the classroom to facilitate plans and offer group counseling. „ Once we have the plan in place we I must implement the plan. The community is expecting great things and we want to be as good as the elementary schools. I look forward to working with the H PTA, students, teachers and the larger community. We will work with any group who is willing to afford us iheir services. Freeport Pride has been one of those organizations and they have w been paramount in helping our students and our community.



One of the biggest problems is cutting classes and lateness to classes. ,I've spent time with the custodians and we did a walk through from the sub-basements to the roof. I'm aware of all those hidden spots. One of my deans knows of the potential problem areas and will walk with the security staff to do rotational sweeps. I'd say there is a traffic-flow problem in the cafeteria. It tends to bottleneck and I think we have to look at using one door in and out. I've been told we need to work on discipline. We just hired Wendy Haise as a new dean and we will identify students with difficulties and put in place intervention programs to aid these students. We'll also work closely with guidance to see how we can afford more services for these students.

How to you plan to get the community involved?

What about the perception of gangs in the school? «---

One of the things I want to do is host a special college night for students of Hispanic descent. Latinos are not going to college as much as other groups. This year we are targeting the seniors, next year the juniors. Also I'd like to see a pre-prom program where you invite the entire community to come to the school and see the students in their prom gowns. Then the students go to the prom on tour'buses. They do this at Malverne High School and it's been very successful. It helps to reduce the incidences of drugs and alcohol.

It would be difficult to comment on that at this point but it's not just a school issue; it is a community issue. From my city experience, I would sit down and declare the school neutral territory. .

What do you think about No Child Left Behind and standardized testing? No Child Left Behind has value to restructure education in a global manner, but it needs modification. As a special education teacher and as a parent I know that children are individuals and you can't always look at data in isolation. You must see their capacity. The law doesn't see the whole child. Some children need four years in high school, others, fivei some three and a half. I hope the state will look at the regents and see if they can look at a more equitable adjustment. Let's not forget that New York ranks in the lop five in education.We already do a very good job of educating students.

What are the school's top three strengths, and their top three weaknesses? Diversity - there is so much potential in this student body. The-staff they have an appreciation for the students and love this community. Finally. I'd have to say that the students and parents I've met are wonderful. I hope to put together a panel of students and parents to help us tackle things that come up at school.

police news Baldwin A 1992 Honda Prelude was stolen on Sunrise Highway and Grand Avenue on July 18 between 5:20 a.m. and 4:05 p.m. A (jar radio was stolen from a vehicle" at the Long Island Railroad parking lot on Sunrise Highway on July 18 between 730 a.m. and 9:25 p.m. ;

"Eager To Serve" campers Summer camp is the most memorable experience of a child's life. Even as an adult it is hard lo forget the camp's annual fi;eld day, where you completely doused your counselor with water or the trip to the aquarium where you actually held a real horseshoe crab. These unforgettable moments, lasting friendships and once-in-a-fifetime opportunities place an eternal bond between.lhe child's hearl and the institution. This bond becomes apparent as they become adults and return lo the camp to offer their services and express their gratitude. Eager To Serve, Inc., the community orienled, non-profil organization based in Freeport, expresses this love through their counselors, five of whom were once their campers. As the spearhead of four camps. Fun in The Sun Day Camp.. Camp Country Club, Computer Camp Wireless, and Youth in Training. ETS has offered the most enjoyable and enriching summer to the children of the community for over 16 years. With their innovative approach to learning through cognitive development and the-, many socially and physically stimulating activities, none of Ihe five senses are left untouched.

The former counselors are promoting as well as maintaining the community service structure lhat ETS, Inc. thrives on. During (his summer, several young people returned from Iheir busy scheduled as high school, pre-co|lege,' and college students to give back the. same love they received years ago. Many of them have been with ETS, Inc. since pre-school, and. "It makes our heart soar to know that we meant that much,to them that they would return and show so much gratitude." said LeVada Felder. Executive Director of ETS. Inc. There is even an ETS. Inc. performing arts sludent who returned after college to become a site supervisor. The basic concept of pride in one's community is solidified through these young people's actions. The realization and understanding that such a> rich opportunity, to be part of such a great organization, is as beneficial to the counselors as -it is to their campers. There is a sense of peace knowing that an eagerness ,lo give back still exists in this society where such actions are rarely rewarded or recognized.

Ms. Hickman said she thought the issue was one of demographics. "Look at the political constituencies." she said. "It's a bigger issue than just funding." A former social worker, she suggested that Mr. Denenberg's commuter group "partner up with social services" to address the larger issue of homeless people using the station. Mr. Palamaro said homelessness "is an issue we contend with at many stations" and the MTA police "ivy to make a connection with shelter, clothing and food." Ms. Hickman said the MTA should form direct partnerships with social services providers as "the most effective method" of dealing with the problem.

Ups and downs Ms. Myhre complained about frequent break-downs of the escalators and filth of the elevator. "The escalator broke down four or five limes in one month." she said. "And the Freeport elevator is like walking through someone's toilet. The walls are filthy, never cleaned." Ms. Greer said the escalator and elevator are slated to be "completely replaced, but I can't guarantee it won't break down." she said, and noted Ihe escalators are tested every day at 6 a.m.

He said by (he time the LIRR replied to his written request, it was too late to gel out Ihe notices about Ihe Frccporl meeting, which were sent by bulk mail, and hope residents received them in time. "I should be able to pick up the phone." he said. "It's hard to gel dates from Ihe LIRR. I had to wait weeks to get confiirnalion ol the July 28 dale, and I had to argue with the secretary." Mr. Palamaro said anyone having a problem or question may call the public affairs manager's office at (718) 5588228. Mr. Denenberg also got the word out by personally distributing notices at Ihe four stations. Four people attended Ihe meeting. The Wednesday.
