Approximately 400 guests gathered at the IfFreeport Recreation Center recently to savor isome of the wonderful tastes Freeport has to loffer. The occasion was Freeport Pride's annual |benefit "A Taste of Freeport." Introduced last year and receiving r.ave ijreviews, the event highlights restaurants and spejfcialty food outlets from the Freeport area each goffering a taste of their establishment's outstanding cuisine. This year's featured venues included Bedell's |at West Wind (Chicken Borscia), Bracco's (Fried |Calamari), E.B. Elliot's (Asian Calamari), The ilmperial Diner (Hampton, Boston Chicken, gGreek Salad and Asian chicken wraps), Lou I'Jones' (Soul Food), Love & Quiches (Gourmet pBrowriies), The Mermaid (Shrimp, with |Linguini), Nautilus" Cafe (Clam Chowder), ^Piccolo's (Chicken Michelangelo and Farfalle lAmatriciana), Pier 95 (Seafood Paella), Rachel's SWaterside Grill (Salmon Strudel), Raimo (Pizza |Bites), Ralph's (Famous Ices), The Schooner |(Crab.and Seafood Salad on Cucumber Rings) fand Water Lilly's Waterside:Cafe (Chili). A gift of foil-wrapped dark chocolate hearts as Iguests were departing was a final and special Itaste treat provided by The Chocolate Inri. IComplementing the food tasting was a flavorful fnon-alcoholic sampling featuring some new

tastes and looks from Coca Cola, Arizona] Beverage, and (Freeport's own) Dunkin'' Donuts. - . Keeping in time to the great food was the music of Chuk Fowler and Higher -Energy. The ensemble offered up a range of jazz and bluesh music that fed one's soul and added -bounce to one's step. The original concept for this event was thato Ramiro Santos of Pier 95 who, with C6-Chai Don Mauersberger, has nurtured and guided this project to success two years running. When asked what prompted his initial involvement, Mr. Santos noted that in his view it was only right to give back to the community" where you do business. Based on the enthusiasm and generous local support this event has received, especially from area food establishments, it would appear that Mr. Santos' philosophy is one widely accepted within Freeport's business community. Freeport Pride was pleased to welcome LI Checker Cab. as a corporate sponsor for 2006 to join its returning 2005 sponsor, Signature Bank. |f Proceeds, from the event will assist in underwriting Freeport Pride's programs relating to; substance abuse prevention and treatment, and provision of youth services to Freeport area families and youth.

But Mayor William F. Glacken said he took "issue with that statement," notirig that regulations call for contractors to certify the number of minority workers by race to meet village requirements.

Honor our Armed Forces Saturday is Armed Forces Day, when we honor all of the men and women serving in our Armed Forces, including the National Guard, reservists, Army, Navy, Marines a n d A i r Force'. • • ' ' • • It is celebrated on the third Saturday in May, ever since 1950, when General Omar Bradley proclaimed, "The heritage of freedom must be guarded as carefully in peace as it was in war. Faith, not suspicion, must be the key to our relationships. Sacrifice, not selfishness, must be the eternal price of liberty." He was speaking in the context of the Cold War following World War II, perhaps referring to the rivalry between the. various branches of the Armed Forces, not to mention the Allies. But his message has relevance for "us today. We all owe a debt of gratitude to those serving in the Armed Forces. In order to defend our security and freedom, they are putting up with danger, physical discomfort, and sometimes boredom • and drudgery, along with separation from their families and often loss of income. Too many have died or been permanently disabled. Many are not even citizens yet, but anxious to help defend the homeland they hope to make their own for themselves and their descendants. In this country, even in wartime, citizens are permitted to voice their opposition to the war. Our Armed Forces are fighting to preserve that right, and our other freedoms, because a country where no one is permitted to criticize those in power is not free. But people are more 'careful now than they were during the Vietnam War to make it clear that while they disagree with the policy decision .to go to war, they do care about and support our troops; One way is to send "care packages" and letters to individual soldiers. Another is to lobby for better care and benefits for returning soldiers and for their families while they are away. What about a special "gold card" th'at would enable veterans to be treated at any of our leading hospitals?

CONNECTING COMMUNITY Last week Connie Grando of the Baldwin Historical Society presented a wonderful program on the history of Baldwin to members 'of the South Nassau Communities Hospital Auxiliary. There was a vibrant interaction among the two groups in the library's new Community Room as Connie conducted her slide show, which consisted of so many outstanding pictures from' the Baldwin museum's collection of photos that were donated by one of its founders, James McKeon. Comments, particularly from Baldwinite Bruce Lister and Freeporter but former Baldwinite Mildred Joseph, helped make history come alive. When pictures of the pharmacy of Dr. William J. Steele were shown, Mrs. Joseph, the widow of Dr.. Joseph of Freeport, even remembered Dr. Steele's office phone number - "404." How magnificent were the photos of old homes, schools, stores, streets, hotels and inns. Changes at the LIRR station traced the development of the community, from a small crossing 'surrounded by dirt roads and tree-lined streets to the present modern facility, raised above street level in 1957. : Most interestingly, during an early period when the town was growing, a wooden sign erected by the Businessmen's Association and intended for potential home buyers arriving at the station noted, "Don't judge this town by the depot." The sign then listed a wide variety of community assets - water, electricity, and schools - along with such luxurious amenities as swimming, fishing and boating.

I could only think that a similar sign might be appropriate now^ "Don't judge this town by Grand Avenue," with residents today still believing that its most visible main street does not accurately reflect the economic level and quality of life available here. The joint program of the historical society and hospital auxiliary reminded me of another program- I attended only days before in upper Manhattan at which numerous city, federal and non-profit groups' joined together with an important purpose in mind. That program was hosted by the High Bridge Coalition to commemorate the progress that has been made in restoring High Bridge Tower. The coalition is also promoting plans to restore the pedestrian High Bridge, the oldest bridge in the city, which is part of a 41-mile aqueduct system that first brought fresh water to New York in 1848. The numerous groups participating in that project are -slowly accomplishing what each group individually could never accomplish. So, too, the joint meeting of Baldwin's Historical Society with South Nassau Communities Hospital Auxiliary members brought together a .variety of local residents who might have different • primary agendas but whose interests are extremely compatible. While each group has a different main focus, both are interested in the community - past, present, .and future. Officers from both groups handed out their own membership forms, each with minimal fees for joining. The lively conversation which took place during the presentation made it clear that at least some of the auxiliary members would be stopping by the Baldwin museum, located

Today, active members in almost any of the community's organizations are hard to find. Joint effort and cooperation are needed as never before. Some groups already do this - the Kiwanis Club has always had a link to local schools and in Baldwin interacts well with the Key Club in sponsoring mutual activities, particularly a pancake breakfast for senior citizens. The Chamber of Commerce also has numerous links to the schools with its members acting as mentors for Shadow • Day programs and the business department at the high school along with Key Club helping the chamber with its various projects. Several local groups also cooperate: with the Sanitation Department in co-sponsoring the annual Big Sweep clean-up. More of this kind of joint cooperation is needed. Recently, when I researched the history of Baldwin in 1935 for our paper's 70th Anniversary, I noticed that the editor of the old Baldwin Citizen newspaper,

who was newly hired'that year, comment- H ed on his observations of the community. He said that-he felt that every community group wanted cooperation but didn't seem willing to offer cooperation to other groups in return. To some extent that same problem exists today. We say that we are busier than ever oo before; although how we could be busier N) than the Baldwinites of 1935 who had few labor-saving devices is hard to understand. Perhaps they also had fewer distractions like computers and -television which encourage a more vicarious and insulated existence rather than, more active personal participation. Whatever the reason, we need more cooperative effort. Occasional joint meetings of local' organizations seem an extremely effective way to accomplish that goal. Certainly the coming together of the Baldwin Historical Society and the South Nassau Communities Hospital Auxiliary was a wonderful social and informational success. More groups should consider issuing similar invitations to; other community organizations with compatible goals and interests.

The Leader's winning Mother of the Year letter i am writing to you about the most amazing woman I know. My mother. But that title simply does not do her justice. She is the universal mom. I am one o f ; many children in this town who know Patrice Gianaca as "Mom." She has followed'my brother and-I info every endeavor with the largest wealth of support imaginable. However, when most parents would be content to let their kids go off, mymom got involved. For'example, my brother and I were involved in .Little League when we were younger, and although she was not able to coach, she took a behind-the-scenes role. She joined the board of the league to make sure it was kept running smoothly. A few years into her involvement with the league, the league's president, William Glacken, decided to run for mayor. This • left an intimidating vacancy on the board. My mom stepped up. She became the first female president of the league, ever, and did an excellent job at it. Members still ask her when she is coming back. Kids would see her on the street and ask her when their next game would be, and' she, being the compassionate person she is, made it a point to try and remember all of the children she could, so she would know who they are, and would tell them when and where their next game was with a smile. Our family was always the last to leave the field after games because my mother wanted to make sure every child got home safely. My mother has also made some very impressive personal accomplishments as well. A few years ago our family met some hard times, so my mother decided she would go back to college. She not

only tackled the educational front after nearly 30 years away, she made the bean's List. All the while she never let her strain affect her family, and stayed the best mom around. She ended'up getting her degree and securing a position at Village Hall. She not only bettered herself, she saved our home and way of life. As young children, my brother and I always found it funny when our friends came over. They would quite of ten'slip and call my mother "Mom." Initially this was a-mistake, but almost" all of them •eventually'just called her that because it was the most appropriate word for her. She embodies the title.' Several times over the years, our friends would come to, us after they had had trouble at home, so my mom would call their parents. and have them slay with us for a while. When I asked her why, she told me, "I'd rather see a child safe in bed than out wandering the streets, no matter what-the circum' stances." . ' I cannot lay .claim to my mom alone; she is Freeport's mom. She approaches everything with a calm, even temper, and accepts everyone for whom they are. She is my .role model and hero. I owe most everything I am to her and my father. She's there to talk when I want to vent about a stressful day, and she's there to scold if she feels I have been slacking .both I look back on and appreciate greatly.

While deployed he acted as the 492nd to Expeditionary Fighter Squadron (EPS) . director of operations. The 492nd EPS flew over 940 sorties and 6,090 hours in just four months.

Jane, 3, attends preschool and is just a very busy girl.

Heidi E. Warm Todays piece is not a citation of a published expert, but rather a rant... self-serving, longwinded, unadulterated rant. Call it left-over latent Feminism from the last article, "One for the Girls." This business of dating is tricky. And I know I'm not alone in my thinking, as Suze Orman, investment guru, recently did a feature on being single and dating. The piece focused on picking up the bill. Let me first say that a good constituency of my single, woman friends would just as readily throw a brick at my head as hear my thoughts on this'matter. Okay...here we go: Traditionally, the man asks the woman out, the first time. Therefore it is reasonable to expect him to pay. Conversely, if the woman asks the man out...something perfectly acceptable today (The Rules excluded), the woman really should expect to pay. Now fast forward to 'months into a relationship. Should the man continue to pay? In the past...there was the essentially forced condition of the woman having little or no money: If the man continues' to pay, exclusively; doesn't it suggest that the event is for his pleasure, exclusively. And by extension...does that line of reasoning deem marriage a stay of indentured servitude? You pay, I stay? Remember the old truth tables in the logic chapter of the math text? If the woman enjoys the event, why shouldn't she contribute in accordance with her financial comfort level? If the man is secure in what he "brings to the table," in a relationship - no pun intended; Would offering to contribute to the bill (or god forbid, pick it up), make the man feel emasculated? Guys...Please, get back to me. Taken a different way, don't both parties gain from a mutually enjoyable experience? For if it's not mutually enjoyable, it should not theoretically continue into the ongoing state of months, unless it's an altogether different kind of arrangement, wherein the woman is always paid. You know,' not only is this residual sentiment from my last piece, but it also resonates from a comedy line I heard somewhere,... "Isn't the only difference between dating and prostitution... dinner??? " And so, my thought for you to ponder is...What self-respecting, gainfully employed individual...male or female...could be paid for all of the time and not feel handicapped in some way?

Brito clarifies information from page 5 rotating hall monitors and removing pay phones from the high school. The requiring of student IDs, the restriction of lavatory use betwee^ classes and the . use of passes during class periods have been initiated at the middle school. Additional cameras have been ordered and will soon be installed at the high school. The written threats, which have appeared in bathrooms, have caused the district to follow approved police procedures in searching the building and limiting the carrying of large bags or backpacks. School officials also monitor and screen at school entrances. Dr. Britto sent a letter to parents urging that they discuss the issue with their children, reminding-them of the seriousness of the crime and its consequences, as well as the negative. image such behavior gives of Baldwin schools and of Baldwin. He stressed, "99.9 percent of our students make the right choices. It is only a small minority instigating these incidents and making the wrong choices." Dr. Britto then went on to explain statistics behind a recent Newsday article in which Baldwin was listed as a school district which failed to meet state academic targets. What seemed to particularly gall Baldwin's educators was that the article devoted significant coverage to explaining why Great Neck was placed in that same category but the paper did not extend that same courtesy and level of explanation for other districts like Baldwin. In fact, Baldwin met or exceded academic targets in all but two.small categories and those were the result of a recording error. According -to state educational regulations, at least 95 percent of students eligible to take a required test must take that test. This is a guard against the practice in which some district are alleged to have suggested that certain weaker students "stay home" on

the day of the test. Unfortunately, there ate numerous small sub-categories to report and in one category at the secondary level, three exam scores' in. English and three in mathematics were not reported. In those two categories the district technically fell below the 95 percent participation threshold although the students actually did take the test. These students were a subgroup consisting of secondary students educated at either the high school or in out-of-district placements. Without that explanation in Newsday, however, the perception of the district's achievements was skewed. In fact, in all other testing areas, Baldwin's scores for the 2004/05 school year significantly improved over . 2003/04 scores'. Fourth-grade English Language Arts (ELA) improved from 70 to 84 percent and frorn a county rank of 50th to 41st. Fourth-grade math improved from 86 to 92 percent with the rank improved from 50th to 46th. Math 8 improved from 56 to 72 percent with a rank improvement • from 42nd to 33rd. English 8 ELA improved from 54 to 67 percent with a rank improvement from 38th to 32nd. English Regents passing rates improved from 86 percent to 91 percent and math scores improved from 75 percent passing to 88 percent passing. Dr. Britto was particularly pleased to see a continuing positive improvement trend rather than "porpoising" with gains followed by declines. He praised the many double-digit improvements and described the Newsday article as one that "didn't provide hard facts"- nor equitably explain results for all districts. "They did it for Great Neck but not for Baldwin," he commented. Expanding on Baldwin's success, he noted that the district was recently listed 571 out of 1000 top high schools in the nation out of 10,000 schools. That ranking was based on Advanced Placement offerings and student participation and success.

South Shore bays are 'under attack' by Laura Schofer Fact: 200 tons of garbage-have'been removed from the Great South Bay from Seaford to Point Lookout in the last 15 years. Fact: In 1976 the clamming industry harvested 700,000 bushels of hard clams from the waters off Long Island; in 2005, only 10,000 bushels were harvested. Fact: The petroleum products equivalent to the volume of two Exxon Valdez tankers have been dumped down -our drains and into the bays along the South Shore of Long Island. "The South Shore Estuary is under attack," .remarked Legislator David Denenberg at a forum sponsored by the Bellmore-Merrick .Democratic Club recently, "and now we have storm water run off, pesticides and garbage that are constantly going into our waters. We must make this a local issue. Our environment [here on the South Shore] is too sensitive for all this." Along with other environmentalists on hand at the forum, Mr. Denenberg urged residents "to rock the boat" to ensure that our waters are cleaned up atid stay that way. Pesticides, herbicides in our waters • Jim Rabner, a canvas director from the Long Island Neighborhood Network, asked residents to support the aesthetic pesticide ban bill, now before the New York State legislature. ' If passed it would ban chemical pesticides that are used only for aesthetic or ornamental purposes. "It is estimated that Long Islanders apply over 10 million pounds of pesticides every year [on their lawns]," said Mr. Rabner. In densely populated areas that amount of chemical "is very toxic and goes into our water. We have very high cancer rates around here," he said. The pesticides that could be banned include the herbicides 2,4-D, atrazine, and dicamba, which may cause reproductive and birth defects as well as nerve damage. The fungicide cholorothalonli is also suspected of being a carcinogen, according to information compiled by the EPA. The bill will not affect pesticides used for farming, termite control or indoor pest cpntrol in homes and businesses. One woman asked if these chemicals

were tied tottreast cancer rates. "We can't say it causes breast cancer," replied Mr. Rabner, "but there appears to be a link. I've read that DDT, once commonly used, has a derivative called DDE and that has been found in certain.breast tissue." Mr. Rabner urged residents to use organic lawn care, "which takes a little longer but [the chemicals] won't end up in our water." Information about organic lawn care can Jbe found on its website at ' www.neighborhood-network.org. He also asked residents to write or call their state legislators in support of this bill. Clean Water Act of 1970 The Clean Water Act, which was passed in 1970, promised to eliminate pollution in America's waters by 1985 by prohibiting unpermitted discharges of pollutants into the waters of the United States. But the act is now being challenged before the Supreme Court to limit federal jurisdiction to waters that are, in fact, navigable. The net effect, in the words of Justice David Souter, would mean "All you've got to do is dump pollutant far enough up the water system to get' away-scot free." In addition, the United States Joint Ocean Commission Initiative, a group organized to further, as well as implement, a comprehensive national ocean policy, has called on senior public officials to accelerate federal action to protect our oceans. The initiative has warned that inaction may threaten greater economic and ecological losses, and calls the current system a "haphazard hodgepodge of laws and programs," according to the newsletter issued by the New York State League of Conservation Voters. .The U.S. Commission's report further states that "our waters are so troubled that reform needs to start now, while it is still possible to reverse distressing declines, and to sustain the oceans and their valuable assets for future generations." The report also stresses the importance of reducing non-point source polj lution, which is mostly from pesticide and fertilizer use, on-site. wastewater disposal (failing septic systems), construction activities, chemical and petroleum use and storage, domestic animal waste disposal, vehicle use and road

construction. With eac'h rainfall, pollutants generated by these activities are washed into our storm water drains, channels and small streams that flow into waterways and eventually our coastal waters. ' . Pollution's effects on the estuary What this means, according local activists Robert Weltner, Don Harris and Tom McCavera of SPLASH (Stop Polluting Littering and Save our Harbors), is that the public must take responsibility for keeping our waters clean. Mr. Weltner explained that the South Shore Estuary is a fragile ecosystem providing important habitat for a variety of wildlife. Long Island's South Shore Estuary consists of a series of shallow, interconnected bays (and the tidal por-. tions of their tributaries) behind the barrier islands that separate the Long Island mainland from the Atlantic Ocean. It -stretches from the Town of Hempstead to the Town of Southampton and contains the most extensive acreage of tidal wetlands in New York State. "Parts of the bay are dead or near dead," explained Mr. Weltner. A documentary produced and written by Mr. Weltner and Tom McCavera portrayed both the pastoral beauty of the bays and the man-made devastation, including one shot of a swan nesting in a pile of garbage. "In some places nothing can grow, nothing lives," explained Mr. Harris, vice-president of SPLASH. "It's becoming a wasteland." "It will cost us money to clean it up," said Tom McCavera, "but it's worth it." What you can do Non^point source pollution can be .controlled by practicing a few simple .guidelines: • If you have a pet, clean up the waste and dispose of it in a garbage can. This can drastically reduce the amount of bacteria and organic matter in storm water runoff. • Sweep, don't hose, driveways and other paved areas around your home. • Maintain vehicles to avoid any leaking fluids such as oil gasoline, antifreeze and other liquid chemicals. • Store pesticides and fertilizers indoors. Consider organic lawn care. • Collect lawn and garden clippings,

pruning waste and tree trimmings for compost in your yard. Do not place yard waste by curbside drains. In addition to non-source-point pollution, SPLASH would like to see the sewage treatment plants upgraded. Here in Nassau County there are'two municipal plants, one at Bay Park, which empties into the.West Bay and has been responsible for the loss of clamming and much fishing in the area because of too much sea flora growth, which takes nutrients from marine animal life; and Cedar Creek Park, Wantagh, which has a two-mile pipe -that empties into the ocean. The state also runs a facility at Jones Beach, which also dumps its effluent into the bays. " ' Effluent is treated waste water that contains nitrates, which act as fertilizer for the growth of algae or seaweed. SPLASH says that much of the bay bottom is covered with over a foot of seaweed and is smothering all marine life, referring specifically to the Bay Park operation. SPLASH urges -all residents to write to their local, state and federal representatives about these issues. "We are also always looking for volunteers," said Mr. Weltner. Even if you don't have a boat, you can join the other volunteers who go out into the bays each day from April through November to clean up the refuse found in the waters off our shores. "I joined SPLASH early on because I knew we had to fight .this battle locally," said Mr. Denenberg. "SPLASH is the largest clean-up organization in the country and is making a difference in keeping our waters clean." Anyone interested, in joining can call 378-4770. Yet it was one man, named Vic, who said that one of the biggest problems with the health of our waters may be man's •intervention. "The clams clean our bays. This brown tide [we get] is horrific. But if you take four medium-sized clams, overnight they will clean up 300 meters of the brown tide. If we left nature alone it would take care of itself." He concluded that we should let the inlets close and open at will, and that we should listen to the local fisherman who "are scientists. They know the waters, know the bays. But there is a species on the barrier islands considered more important than others. It's called the Long Island multimillionaire."

A Gold Mine in Bedroom Drawers Newswire: People are selling their old scrap gold that is gathering dust for its cash'value because gold prices are so high. With the price of gold at a 25 year high (over $650.00 per ounce), it makes sense.
