ROBOT, A CHARACTER IN HIS OWN RIGHT, talks up character development to Freeport students.

I, robot, speak their language Gizmo The Robot may have a silver metal body, a spinning head and blinking lights, but when it comes to talking to youngsters about the importance of walking the straight and narrow path and avoiding alcohol and substance abuse, he's all heart. On a chilly October day, Gizmo received warm welcomes from students and faculty at the Bayview Avenue and Leo F. Giblyn elementary schools in Freeport. The robot appeared as part of the observance by the schools of "Red Ribbon Week," in which students and teachers all wore red ribbons urging students to "Show Character/Don't Do Drugs." Based in New Jersey, and with a resume that includes appearances on TV shows, in schools across the country, and at corporate shows and international events, the robot glided along the floor, as hundreds of students, seated in a "U" formation, gasped in awe as Gizmo talked to them in a group and

one on one. Introduced to individual students at each of the respective schools, Gizmo repeated his question, to each. "How old are you?" When the student replied, Gizmo quickly added, "Are you married?" which drew loud laughs and screams from the student as well as classmates. Warming to his subject, Gizmo emphasized to the students that they are all "million-dollar machines," capable of great achievements as long as they keep themselves healthy and working properly. "Red Ribbon Week" is a national campaign launched to honor the work and memory of Enrique "Kiki" Camarena, an agent. with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DBA), who was murdered in Mexico by drug dealers in 1985 after they discovered that he was an undercover law enforcement agent who had infiltrated their operation.

Freeport school board starfs budget process

CN u J? OH

by Mark Treske

Ah, spring...when a young man's fancy turns to school budgets. The Freeport o" school board took such a time leap when it outlined the beginning of the process that will culminate with the 2006-2007 school I budget vote on May 16, 2006. Deputy Superintendent Kishore Kuncham spoke about the timeline. A budget meeting with administators was T3 held on October 31, and administrators at £ the various schools are already beginning to prepare their budget requests; They were I told that budget levels for textbooks and materials would be unchanged, and that Q staffing increases must be "mission criti< cal" or required to meet standards or guideW J lines. w D(. Eversley said that a meeting with the K Budget/Finance Advisory Committee was scheduled Jbr December 12. As of now, 12 '^members are already confirmed, with four yet to respond. Additionally, there would be th/ee student members. (See page six for more information on the committee.) The district has tentatively scheduled an extra budget meeting for March 8. 2006, and plan to formally adopt the budget by the beginning of April. State law has made for one significant change this year: All

necessary budget revotes- must take place on the third Tuesday of June (June 20). In speaking generally about the process. Mr. Kuncham noted that the district shared the public concern about taxes (as expressed by the 21 contingency budgets on Long Island this year) and would strive to produce a fiscally responsible budget that was sensitive to this concern. Mr. Kuncham outlined various major areas of concern: • Energy costs - The Oil Heat Institute projects a 40-60 percent rise in energy costs over the winter. This situation has produced a hole of $500-$700,000 in the current budget - and may not get better in the future. • Healthcare - a 12 percent rise in healthcare costs is being projected for trig" first half of 2007. • Mandates - of particular note is thecost of increased testing under the federal No Child Left Behind act. • Reassessment - many people receiving their tax bills this fall are blaming school districts for steeper-than-expected increases. Mr. Kuncham reminded the meeting that the district was only responsible for a 5.99 percent increase in the tax levy, and that reassessment and a rise in property values was responsible for the rest.

well this year. Student Crystal Jordan told the board about what she called "unsanitary conditions" at the high school - ceiling tiles covered with mold, ceiling tiles falling and a leaky roof. The board promised to follow up on this, suggesting that its annual inspection tour of the district's buildings should start at the high school. Mr. Kuncham noted that the district has already started a roofing project throughout the district - and that October's recent eight straight days of torrential rain caused problems for Freeport as it did elsewhere. In later board comment, trustee Ron Ellerbe noted the recent passing of Rosa Parks, and confirmed that flags in the district, were at half-nfast. Commenting on the earlier discussion of roofing problems, trustee Debra McQuillan noted that the district works very hard to keep the buildings repaired - but that often "money doesn't keep up with need." a situation that might compel consideration of a bond issue in the future. Thus the implications of the budget process are indeed a year round matter. The next meeting of the Freeport school board will be Wednesday. November 16. at Dood Middle School.

Trustee Ron El lerbe brought up the possible implications- of Proposition I on the .November 8 ballot which, among other things, would establish state school funding for two years. It was agreed that the budget committee should consider the implications of passage of this proposal. In a particularly active public comment period, Karen Philpotts asked the board when seniors at the high school will once again be allowed to leave campus. The campus was closed until further notice (seniors not allowed to leave) as a result of a fight outside of the high school that took place on the morning of Friday, October 21 (The Leader, October 27). Board president Michael Raab responded that the matter is being monitored by the school in co-ordination with the board, but that there is no projected timetable to go back to an open campus. "If there was a need, there was a need," said Mr. Raab, who promised that the matter would be handled quickly - but with judgment. Teresa May noted that the district is being honored for its participation in the American Cancer Society's breast cancer Walkathon. She noted that the district raised $8,873 last year and hoped to do as

Village board hears public comments by Jim Golding Village trustees approved one item of business and heard public comments from residents in their 28-minute meeting on Monday. The hoard approved a request from Freeport Little League Inc., to hand a banner on South Main and Archer

streets from November 16-January 15 for registration. In public comments, Alan Jay, citing a response by the three candidates for county executive to a question on affordable housing by the League of Women Voters, expressed concern about increasing tax assessments and the effect building a new home at an

"affordable" price would have on the property taxes of other homeowners. Mayor William F. Glacken advised Mr. Jay the village has not done a tax assessment because of the negative effect the county tax reassessment has had, which appeared to reassure Mr. Jay. Dr. Al Renken. former president of the Freeport school board who was representing the Century Club, followed up on similar presentations he made at recent meetings petitioning the board to name the Cleveland Avenue practice field in honor of former Freeport Athletic Director Bill Ashley, who established a w i n n i n g tradition in the high school's athletic pro-

gram. Eileen Weaver commented that, while driving through northwest Freeport. she noted that "Freeport is beautiful at this time of year" because of the abundant trees in the village. Kenneth Bagatelle expressed concern the board met on Halloween and that he "felt an obligation to stay home to protect my home from trick-or-treaters." He also pointed out that he observed two homes -had been boarded up and questioned the reason. He provided the locations to village officials after Mayor Glacken requested the information. Trustees adjourned at 7:48 p.m. Next meeting will he Monday. November 14.

Veterans Day is Friday When a man or woman puts on a military uniform, that person has in a sense died.and been reborn in service to our country and will never be the same."Even after ah honorable discharge, his or, her life wi.ll always be different. ... Because of the sacrifices they have made for us, preserving our democratic way of life, we must make sure they never fare worse than those who have not served. Veterans deserve good medical care, education benefits and job training. They deserve our thanks, every day of the year, but especially on Veterans Day.

Tobacco's toll, what you can do about it Next week, Thursday, November 17, is the Great American Smokeout Day, when those who have not already quit are asked to stop smoking for just one day. The idea is that if you can tough it out for one day, perhaps you can make through another and another and soon be free of a life-threatening addiction. Some people wonder why anyone would have ever started smoking if they came along after the 1964 Surgeon General's report that confirmed a link between smoking and lung cancer. You certainly never saw many doctors smoking after that. But life is more complicated than that, and the social forces that drove people to smoke have kept their momentum for a long time. The bright side is that it is less and less acceptable with young people. The dark side is that 440,000 Americans die from smoking each year. If you have ever smoked and been through hell trying to quit, or seen a relative suffer because of smoking, you may want to help keep people from smoking. The state Department of Health, Tobacco Control Program is considering using people's stories to educate New Yorkers about "the toll tobacco has on families across the state." If you might be interested in taking part, you can e-mail Susan Kennedy at skennecly@alanys.org. Send your name, address, phone and e-mail. Your slory might be used on TV, radio, in print, on the web or in transit posters. One person really can make a difference. Local residents pushed for the Nassau, Suffolk and New York City ordinances that kicked smoking out of restaurants. That paved the way for a New York State law. For years restaurant workers and other guests had suffered in silence from second-hand smoke. Now they have the law on their side.

lUSt writ©fc>vioan dolano A DOLLAR A DAY Every so often I hear a speaker or read a book whose message could be life-changing. It could be. but usually isn't because 1 tend to lack staying-power. Maybe this time will be different. Two weeks ago, I heard Arthur Simon speak. He is the founder of the non-prof- • it organization, "Bread for the World." I purchased his book, "How Much Is Enough?" and just finished reading it, and now I am in a quandary. How much will 1 allow my life-to change? Mr. Simon is a Lutheran minister who was a pastor on the Lower East Side 40 years ago when there was incredible poverty in the area then known as Alphabet City. Remembering his father's admonition! "It's better to put a fence at the top of, a cliff, than be an ambulance driver at the bottom," he realized that much-of his energy was being spent like aii ambulance driver, trying to deal with lhe problems of the poor after the fact, j Along with othej local clergy, he founded "Bread for;the World." a nonsectarian group devoted to eliminating poverty and most especially hunger in the world. Their approach would be to engage in advocacy to change public policy. It's not as (hough I had never heard some of the situations and statistics

which Mr. Simon discussed in his speech and described in his book. Perhaps it is just that I have reached a point in my life when I am more open to his message, a time when I am less inclined to rationalize how I use my money. And rationalize I do. A joke in our household whenever we make an extravagant purchase is "Well, we don't smoke and we don't drink." It's not that our behavior deserves any special accolades; we don't smoke or drink because neither my husband nor I ever liked to, and (hose savings have been our humorous justification for a variety of purchases throughout our married life. Like many people, we've felt free to lead a life that's not overly luxurious, but certainly filled with privilege. I'm not Imelda Marcos, but I have more shoes than I need. We don't eat at Per Se, the newest of the over-the-top restaurants in New York City, but, as empty neslers, we certainly do eat out more than we did when the kids lived home. We only have one car, but I use it for local errands when a good walk would be more beneficial physically as well as environmentally more sound. But I can rationalize away these choices and many more with ease, and I do. It is less easy to convince myself that those choices are correct, however, now

that I've heard Mr. Simon's well-deliv-ered message. When Mr. Simon published his book in 2003; the poorest 1.2 billion people in the world lived on less than $1 a day. In East Timor, according to the ambassador I heard at the same program, the average income is more like 65 cents a day. How much did I spend on Halloween candy? How much will I spend on our family's Thanksgiving dinner and how much at Christmas? While the problem of poverty is obvious, the solutions are complex and no one should ignore those complexities. Should corruption and fraud be eliminated before further help is given, or can transparency in the process and increased aid be pursued simultaneously? Can the United Nations' millennium development goals, pledged by all its members, including the United States, be accomplished by the year 2015 as is the intent? Can we reduce by half the proportion of people living on less than a dollar a day? Can we reduce the number of those who suffer from hunger? Can we reduce by two thirds the mortality rate among children under five? Can we combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases, create an environment that includes safe drinking water, and provide development which allows countries to be selfsustaining? While those questions are global in

j?

nature, the beginnings of the answers to these worldwide problems can be very specific as I ask myself the question. "yf "How should (his affect me?" What are the lifestyle changes I O should be making? To whom should I donate my time and my resources? I Can I make any difference? Will my decision not to purchase an additional blouse or go to a Broadway show put food on a table in Africa? It's so easy to let myself off the hook. The message of Arthur Simon, however, will not let me ignore the ques- m r tions. How many (oys docs one child in m this country need while children in our own country and around (he world suffer from malnutrition? What luxury is so important as a status symbol (hat it surpasses the right of other individuals to have access to nutrition and health care? And why can't 1 find the (time to let my legislators knowthat I wolild support them on positions which alleviate hunger and poverty in this country and abroad irrespective of their party affiliation? Each dollar I spend is the daily income of 1.2 billion of our world's poorest people, and so the question is really simple. "What shall I choose to do with my dollars?" Or as Mr. Simon asks. "How much is enough?"

Community shows up for Baldwin board's input meeting by Joan Delaney Educational philosophy or practical considerations - and sometimes both premised the questions and comments posed by residents at the Baldwin Board of Education's Community Input meeting November 2. The meeting began with a lively preview of the high school musical "Seussical" which will take place on November 17, 18, and 19, and will include 125 students in (he cast, crew, and orchestra. With the positive theme of having big dreams "dreaming in technicolor-" the show continues to be a very visible sign of the dis-

trict's commitment to the performing arts. "Every kid who wants to be in the show is in it," noted Peter Freeman, the district's director of fine and performing arts. Adding to the enjoyment was the clever responses of 'Superintendent of Schools Robert Britto, who quickly got into the spirit of the moment when the Cat in the Hat questioned him and made references to the superintendent's mission to have students "reflect, revise, and resubmit" their work. Also augmenting the cordial climate was a series of presentations to board members as part of "In Recognition of Boards of Education" week. With com-

ments by middle school students Alexis Redman and Chelsea Redman and high school seniors Ricardo Manigat and Santi Wong, along with individual token gifts presented by the PTA presidents of each

of the schools, the board was honored for the time (hey give and their commitment to quality education. (continued on page 15)

Freeport budget advisory committee

Filmmaker Honored by Joan Delaney

Pierre Defendini, a 1989 graduate of Baldwin High School and a graduate of the State University of New York at Albany, was recently honored as a producer and co-cinematographer of the film "Home." O The 85-minute documentary, which Z received a juried award at the Silver Springs Film Festival in Maryland, was T3 '£, directed by Jeffrey M. Togman, who is 3 also an associale professor in political H science and an assistant dean at Seton Hall University. It is being shown at the PJ Margaret Mead Pavilion at the Q American Museum of Natural History in Manhattan and is expected to tour the museum's traveling program. w with "Home" tells the story of Sheree Farmer, a single mother of six who doesn't drink, smoke or do drugs. Her dream is to move her family out of their drug-infested, crime- ridden- gang- controlled neighborhood in Newark. With the help of Mary Rigby-Abernalhy, a former fashion industry executive and cancer survivor who has quit her job lo help low-income families become homeowners. Ms. Farmer works lo put together a down payment for a home at Bergen Estates. There are complications and the film follows the difficult process. Mr. Defendini. whose parents have been friends of Baldwin editor Joan Delaney for three decades, explained his interest and love of films. He has been working in film and television for a little over three years and prior lo that worked in various other media, including music, advertising, Inlernet and radio. He now describes himself as "settled" in film. Speaking of his work on "Home" with Mr. Togman, he called il "a fascinating and rewarding experience since the day 1 started." He added, "I had the privilege to spend lime wilh some remarkable people at an important juncture in their lives. What they did and shared before our camera was an amazing act of courage. Most people can't share thai way. I'd include myself in lhai group. From my perspective as a filmmaker, it's an incredible generous gift." Among his other noteworthy activities is work on a hip hop documentary conducted in Dakar, Senegal. "There were just two of us arriving from New York wilh like nine suitcases of gear and not many contacts. It was one of my first experiences in production and also my first visit lo Africa. Somehow, we goi a lot of great sluff. I'll never forget the experience." (continued on page 1*0)

The station both overcharged several consumers for gas and gave customers buying premium gas a lower grade gas at the premium price, the DA said. According to Mr. Dillon, "Consumer Affairs received several allegations that the Getty station was overcharging customers. The allegation was that the customer would ask for a certain dollar amount of gas. and the pump would be shut off several dollars short of that amount. Consumer Affairs received two specific complaints that a customer sought $40 worth of gas and the pump was shut off at $37, and 2) that a customer sought $20 worth of gas and the pump was shut off at $18. Based on this information, my office conducted a sting at the sta-

tion. An undercover was sent to purchase $20 worth of gas; when the pump read $ 18.04. it was shut.off by the attendant who took $20 and provided no change. Undercover video confirmed the overcharging in this case." "In addition, on .September 13. an investigator went into the same Getty station to purchase premium 93 octane gas," Mr. Dillon c o n t i n u e d . "The investigator purchased two gallons at $3.39 a gallon. The gas was sent to a lab that identified thai it was only 89.8 or unleaded plus which was selling at $3.29 a gallon. The station was. in fact, stealing 10 cents a gallon from each customer of premium gas." The Getty station has been charged with three criminal charges. As the result of the overcharging, it is charged with Scheme to Defraud in the .Second Degree. In addition, as a result of the octane scam, it is charged with an additional count of Scheme to Defraud in the Second Degree, and ' one count of Petit Larceny. The Getty station charged criminally faces fines up to $5,000 per charge, or the higher a m o u n t of double the amount of the corporation's gain from the commission of the offense. The charges are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent u n t i l and unless proven guilty.

Filmmaker honored from page 8 Speaking of the delicate balance between following artistic instincts and earning a living. Mr. Defendini noted. "I try to work on projects that address my personal interests. But I also rely on film and TV to earn a living, and it can be difficult to find a project you love that can also pay your bills. It's an old

dilemma for people working in the arts. But I t h i n k I'm finding a workable middle ground and keeping optimistic." Speaking of how he will select future work, alter completing such a serious •project, he said. "It doesn't depend much on whether it's fact or fiction, tragedy or comedy. If it's true and told honestly, it has a. chance of being good." i

from page 5 Reacting to the honors, hoard President James Scannell noted that hoard service is a "labor of love." stressing that "every time [the students] are spokespeople. they make us proud.'' He also praised a community which "places such a huge value on teaching and education." During the input portion, community comments ranged from a lengthy presentation hy Stanley Gittleman on Social. Emotional Learning (SEL) to specific issues like weighty backpacks and loo much homework. Several perennial issues such as a lack of student parking, the possibility of a closed campus, and the desire to expand the use of the district's web site were also introduced. Mr. Gittleman had requested a pilot program in SEL at several previous meetings, most especially as a result of some statistics of concern in a recent PRIDE report on student behavior and attitudes. Acknowledging that there are 44 other character education activities in the curriculum, he stressed that this focused approach should still be tried. Several other audience members agreed. Mr. Scannell noted that the Baldwin Educational Assembly (BEA), which initially advocated the use of the PRIDE survey, will be developing its own instrument to collect data, since some of the findings in the PRIDE survey are "somewhat contrary to anecdotal evidence." This feeling was initially expressed when the PRIDE results were first made known, and it was pointed out thai the method of responding did not allow for nuances. This was particularly noted in regard to the students' comments on "feeling safe in school." Mr. Scannell noted that Dr. Brilto and staff from the secondary schools will be making a presentation on '"School Climate and Tone" at the November 9 regular board meeting. Dr. Britto said that recommendations will focus on "how we can maximize the structures we have and expand resources." He pointed out that any pilot program or changes must he "reflective and collaborative with the community most affected. We must ask. 'Who does it target, what does it replace, should it be before or after school?' in addition to philosophical and logistical questions...We have to understand the ramifications." He promised, however, that "My staff and I will listen." In later comments. Mr. Scannell stressed. "Even if we don't embrace the program, we will address the issues." Residents questioned the status of discussions on introducing hot food at the elementary level. Because Baldwin's seven elementary schools were built as neighborhood schools. originally

premised on students going home for lunch, there is no formal lunch program. H Students, therefore, cannot partake of reduced cost lunches which is the require- I ment for a district being considered as o. t» having some level of "poverty." It is this f statistic which makes districts eligible for Z o an assortment of federal funding and o> Baldwin is among only three or four Long Island districts without such a lunch pro- oft gram at the .elementary level. Mr. Scannell said that the Board is "looking into it and is closer to seeing how to o it would fit in next year's budget." o Although the district would not fund facility changes to cook food at the elementary I schools, it might agree to a capital outlay to r allow the heating of already-prepared m foods. "We have to sec if the capital outlays would result in a buy-back over time." On the issue of homework and the impact of excessive homework on family time. Dr. Britto suggested that parents analyze the assignments with a view to "quality versus amount." Without backing off the need for independent reading, which he described as one of the leading predictors and influences on educational success, he admitted thai there "should be a balance." These issues and others were all noted by both Mr. Scannell and Dr. Britto. not necessarily with a promise to produce change, but with a view to at least consider the suggestions and concerns. Other items included: fine-tuning the teachers' and students' understanding of the elementary level report card's rubrics: expanding information on the district's web site: expanding the possibility of emailing the board and teachers; adding email information to the school calendar and-adding foreign-language-at the elementary level, a suggestion Mr. Scannell noted was valid educationally but financially prohibitive. Regarding a closed campus, he stressed that the issue has produced "hot and heavy debate" in the past, would be problematic in a building with so many exits, and would not necessarily be advocated by all parents, much less students. Responding to comments concerning the school calendar's listing days of religious observance, Mr. Scannell noted that, "ihe district made a conscious decision not to list religious holidays nor be arbiters of which holidays to include." In the past, there were regulations regarding testing on such days, but with the multicultural picture changing, the policy has changed. "It was becoming extremely prohibitive." he said, as to when teachers could lest. The policy now is that students who miss a lest, for any reason, including days of religious observance, have (he same procedures to follow in making up their work and tests.

Understanding Cultural Conflict Part!

(N . O"

Heidi E. Warm

My work allows me to deal with people of varIious cultures. Now, while I find it indeed to be an opportunity; working in a multi-cultural envi<O ronment can be a two-edged sword. Joel O Crohn, Ph.D. in his book, Mixed Matches: How to Create Successful Interracial. Inlerethnic. and Interfailh Relationships, speaks to the complex task of Decoding Cultural conflict. In a well demonstrated way, he recognizes six cul3 :ural dimensions: Time, The Nature of the Universe, Cohesiveness of the Family, Emotional Expressiveness, Interpersonal OS Relations, and Gender Roles. W Let us consider an illustration using the Q dimension of time to show how..."cultural value < references serve as a personal compass that joints people toward their culture's definition of correct behavior, shaping inner experience as well as outer behavior." (p. 79-82). "Time is money," "Every second counts," and "The early bird catches the worm," are all maxims that typfy Western culture. In traditional societies whose values go back :o land and agriculture, time is measured in seasons, not seconds. Future and weather can not be controlled. Today is all we can do any hing with, therefore life is focused on the present. When the work is done, the person in the jresent-orient^d culture knows that free moments are to be used for rest and pleasure. Tomorrow's day of labor will be here soon enough. Southern Italy and rural Mexico are examples of cultures where TODAY is most important.

In contrast, certain past-oriented Asian cul tures maintain the generation as the most important unit of time. Actions are constantly influenced by the memory and values of those who have come before. Family shrines in the home are constant reminders of the importance of ancestors, tradition, and other aspects of the past. Crdhn reminds us that while no culture is Durely present, past or future-oriented, each varies in the importance it places on each of these temporal frames of reference. « See Part II Next Week »
