Hempstead commissioner addresses Baldwin chamber By Joan Delaney Twice-within one week, .Town of Hempstead Commissioner of Planning and Economic Development Charles T. VO Theofan has attended local meetings and 8 (N explained the proposed redevelopment (N of the five blighted acres at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Merrick Road in Baldwin. At the community meeting in South Hempstead hosted by Town Councilman 1 Anthony Santino and at the May 16 Baldwin Chamber of Commerce meetH ing, he addressed local concerns. "On the surface anyone would -be § offended by the process of condemning' < private property for private development," he said. "But the reasons behind it are sound." Speaking to Chamber business leaders, some of whom will have their properties condemned by the proposed project, Mr. Theofan first outlined the history of urban development - starting with Augustus Caesar in Rome, continuing to the building of modern Paris with its wide boulevards in the mid-1850s, and expanding in this country during the 1930s with the advent of the Federal Housing Act.


The proliferation of various housing authorities after that legislation, he said, was probably the least successful of urban renewal initiatives because the .building of large-scale projects with little oversight, maintenance and monitoring caused new ghettos. Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village in New York City, built at the end of World War II in an area called the gas house district which was filled with crime, gangs and public utility buildings, displaced 11,000 people living on 18 city blocks. However, it created the first public/private urban renewal project with the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company, which eventually housed 25,000 people and is viewed as a highpoint in urban renewal. Referring to the proposed Baldwin project,, Mr. Theofan outlined the progress thus far, which has followed federal and state regulation. Now that a required blight study has been completed and approved by the Town Board, authorities may enter a second phase which will include the hiring of appraisers. "Usually owners receive far and above what anyone in their right mind would pay," said Mr. Theofan as he

described the appraisal process involved when properties are being acquired by the town through the right of eminent domain. Two appraisals are conducted and the town then pays the higher amount. "We don't dangle it like a carrot," he said when describing the owner's right to challenge the offer in state supreme court. The owner receives the higher'offer while any. litigation continues. In addition to the value of the property, the owner also receives monies for "fixtures" which can' include all manner of "permanent" items such as lighting, shelves and bins. During the next part of. the process, the town meets with appropriate community people to. receive input. Last

Week, members of the Chamber met with Mr. Theofan and those meetings will continue monthly. Earlier, Mr. Santino also referred to a series 'of "visioning" meetings to include residents. Finally, the town sends out a Request for Proposals (RFP) from developers. Mr. Theofan explained that 'it is the town's desire to have developers pay as much of the cost as possible. Referring to the redevelopment at the-old A&S in Hempstead when he was in charge of planning for the Village of Hempstead, he said that Br'eslin developers paid for the entire cost-acquisition and development as well as an administration fee to

Village trustees award bulkhead contracts by Jim Golding After a brief public hearing Monday, village trustees awarded three contracts to Stout Construction Inc. of Patchogue, totaling more than $150,000 for bulkhead work along three streets in south Freeport. Phase II of the bulkheading along the canals will include 809 South Long. Beach Avenue ($47,095);'24 West Second Street .($40,200) and 137 Ray Street ($70,950). The project costs will be financed through bonds, but will be passed along to the property owners through assessments over a 20-year period aftef completion of the work. Responding to a question from •Kenneth Bagatelle, Mayor William F. Glacken noted that only one other company, R.B Conwa'y and Son Construction of Islip, bid on the projects but was not the low bidder.

Contracts accepted/awarded Trustees accepted- a $206,587 contract from Craftsman Fence Corp. to replace perimeter fence at Randall Park; a $281,814 asphalt paving con-

tract from New York Paving for street repairs over a two-year period; and a contract for the towing of impounded vehicles for 2006-07 from Broadway Auto Towing Inc. of Freeport. The firm will pay the village $95 for each car it tows. Board members granted senior citi-. zens exemptions or reduced assessments for the following .addresses on the 2005-06 and 2006-07 tax rolls. • 31 Casino Street, $1,743 and $740.43 refunded. • 152 East Merrick Road, reduced from $5,800 to $3,534. • 397-Pine Street, increased exemption from $1,400 to $1,600. • 1 Anchorage Way, $841 exemption.

CANCER FIGHTERS: National Junior Honor Society students under the banner donated by teacher Dennis Felicio that served as a Scoreboard throughout the competition.

BMS 'Penny War' fights cancer Members of the National Junior Honor Society at Baldwin Middle School conducted a fundraiser for the LeukemiaLymphoma Society by devising a Penny War. The middle school was split into three teams by grade, and teams earned positive points by placing pennies in canisters designated for their grade and caused "negative" points by placing coins of different denominations into other grade canisters. With the help of advisor Erica Seigel, Honor Society members created flyers highlighting

important facts about leukemia and lymphoma, and teachers discussed the fundraiser and its purpose in the advisory classroom. Many students assisted in tallying the points and counting the money daily during lunch periods over a two-week period. In the end, the eighth grade won the competition and the National Junior Honor Society collected 63,000 coins .and over $1,900. The Honor Society also raised nearly $1,000 for the American Cancer Society's fight against breast cancer in the fall.

Honor the dead by caring for the living You can tell when an wears a woolen jacket and hat in Spring he has poor circulation. The gentleman who let the girls go ahead of him at the bottle redemption center in the local supermarket, for example. He even ,wore gloves to sort the muddy cans and bottles he had brought. The girls guessed he had not brought .them from home but from litter in various places. The cans' that were not redeemable for cash he had picked up anyway and placed in the trash cans by the bottle redemption machines, even though that meant he had brought them all the way to the store. Noticing the girls' reluctance to talk with him, he was not insulted but approving. "Never talk to strangers," he advised, adding, "I have two granddaughters in college, and I worry about them. Don't ever go out alone at night. Bring a friend, or a dog." "I'm alone for'30 years since my wife died. My dog is my best friend. He .barks at anybody who tries to come in." . He was pro.ud of his two granddaughters. They were going to be teachers. "But I worry about you young people," he said. "I think the world is in terrible shape. Iwas in World War II, but this war is worse. I don't like it 'at all." Does it seem wrong that someone who served his country in war should have to pick up litter to help make ends-meet in his old age? The gentleman in the supermarket bottle center did this chore with dignity and no complaints. He would likely endure the long waits- and deteriorating facilities at the local veterans' hospital with equal patience. How many of .us would do the same? On this Memorial Day, let us resolve to honor the dead by caring a little more for the living. The soldiers who have served in the Armed Forces, defending our country, deserve, at the very least, to have their health care needs met. That is why we are proposing a special "gold card" redeemable at any hospital, just as an insurance card would be. It would be the best way to say thank you.

Baldwin ekes out victory By Joan Delaney While the New York Yankees were engaged in an historic come-frombehind baseball game in their stadium in the Bronx, the Baldwin School District was engaged in its own game of catchup on that same evening of May 16, as the first three of five voting machines showed a 61-vote deficit for passage of the school budget. ' Voting registrars, candidates for both

the school and library boards," administrators of both the library and schools districts and a score of anxious residents were uniformly quiet as the results of the^, machines were announced - one by one - by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robert Britto. After the machine tallies were completed there was silence as the results of absentee ballots were read and an additional 23 negative votes and 12 positive (continued on page 7)

And it is that house, a large white stucco house on a hill in.the Highbridge section of the Bronx, with a front porch shaded in wisteria vines, .a vegetable garden on one side lot and a flower garden on the other, which filled my memory as we drove through Tuscany. Before my eyes were the villas and farmhouses which served as the models for the home that my grandfather replicated in America. •Most especially I remembered my grandfather's '"shack," a hand-built structure of wood and metal remnants that he constructed to store his tools and garden implements as well as anything that anyone threw out that he believed was valuable. During World War II, when my aunt hadn't enough ration coupons for new shoes, the story goes that he took her to the shack where she discovered every pair of shoes she had ever discarded. Throughout the Italian hillside, every home had at least one of those shacks which looked as if they had been there for centuries. In the walled city of Lucca,-especially, the men bore a striking physical resemblance to my grandfather who came from somewhat nearby Genoa. Small and fair-: skinned, with almost delicate aristocratic features, they are a sharp contrast to their more dark-skinned countrymen from the south. And these old men strolled around: the city, in white long-sleeved shirts/* dress pants, and jackets as did my grandfather in the Bronx, no matter the.temperature, no matter the humidity. How I wish I knew more of my family's history but both of my grandparents spoke little about the country they left. For the most part they spoke only

English, although' occasionally, when I was a young child, my grandmother would mutter some prayerful incantations in Italian when she massaged my forehead and temples and held me on her lap. The beauty of the paintings of Leonardo and Michelangelo, the engineering feat actualized in the" domed cathedrals designed by the architect Brunelleschi, and the permanance of the protective fortifications in scores of walled cities - none of them impressed me as did the emotional link I felt to my past. As my husband and I traveled this Tuscan countryside, in a manner not unlike our previous travels in Ireland where we searched out my husband's family history, we brought with us a married life of both joys and heartache, of dreams fulfilled and goals yet to be realized. And together, as never before, we were linked to a family history exemplified in the life of Louis and Jenny Imperato. How courageously almost a century ago did those young people embark on the unknown to face a life of hope and promise. And wasn't that what we did, my James and myself, so many years ago when we returned home after racing from city to city, young and carefree on our five-dollars-a-day excursion? How could we have known then what our lives would bring? And how could we have known that eventually we would return, and despite the passage of time, be linked, even more closely with my grandparents whose choices and hard work paved the way for~my generation and for generations to come.

To The Leader: As I have said to many, from the outset my candidacy was motivated by my refusal to permit our community, to endure the embarrassment of another uncontested school board election. Without candidates, there would be no community discussion, no dialogue, and no examination of issues. Thanks to the candidacy of both of us, our community did experience a host of opinions, thoughts, and perceptions regarding how to ensure that we have the type of school district that we all desire. It was impossible for me to attend the election results last night, as I had patients until late into the evening. Accordingly, I would like to take this opportunity to extend my congratulations to you and to those individuals who comprised your campaign team. Together you worked magnificently in securing a successful election to the board of trustees. Your team did a wonderful job of presenting your platform and getting out the necessary vote. They are to be commended. Moreover, having the ability to experience your style firsthand in our numerous, encounters, I am confident that you possess the tools and abilities necessary to deal with the issues and problems facing our district.

Baldwin ekes out a victory from page 5 votes were revealed. With a final tally of 1,185 "Yes" to 1,178 "No" votes, the silence continued. Those in attendance .were savvy to the details of voting. Affidavit ballots were still outstanding. An affidavit ballot is cast when residents say that they are registered to vote but their registration is not listed on either school district rolls nor on the rolls that have been previously provided to the district by the Nassau County Board of Elections. These ballots must be certified by the Board of Elections and there were 19 of them - enough to Change the outcome of the school district budget vote. District Clerk Jacquie Ackerman, who is in charge of the; details of voting for the district, had another job to do. ."I'll type the names and addresses of

all the affidavit voters tomorrow morning and fax them immediately to the Board of Elections. Hopefully, we will get priority since the budget outcome'is at stake," she said. On Wednesday, the district received the answer from the Board of Elections by fax and by hard copy. Of the 19 affidavit ballots, one had no address and could not be counted. Of the remaining, ten were not listed as registered with either the Board of Elections nor were they on school district rolls. Of the valid eight affidavit ballots, there were five "No" votes and three "Yes" votes, bringing the final tally for the school district budget to 1,188 "Yes" and 1,183 "No." Ms. Ackerman said that each folded completed ballot, which has no identification on it, is inside an individual envelope. The voter is supposed to place his name and address on the outside of that envelope. She noted that after the Board of Elections .certification process, she, Dr. Britto and Gene Levenstien , interim • assistant superintendent for business, put the non-certified ballots aside.

Together they then opened the certified ballots, placing the identifying envelopes all to one side and all of the folded ballots, which are not identified by name, to the other side. They then opened the folded ballots. In other voting, the affidavit ballots had no impact on the outcome. The library budget passed by over 220 votes. School board incumbents Mary Jo O'Hagan and "B.A." Schoen were reelected, although first-time challenger Stanley Gittlemari had an excellent showing with over 960 votes. Library trustee incumbent Anthony Tarantino won by 90 votes, which indicated a strong first-time performance by challenger Ethell Smith. In commenting on the results to The Leader, school board Vice President

Schoen noted, "I am grateful the community has faith in Mary Jo an'd me and glad that Dr. Britto and our cabinet will have an in-place budget. We are mindful, however, of the pain to taxpayers." The Leader received the following staterrient from Superintendent of Schools Britto: "The Board of Education met last night to accept and discuss the outcome of the 2006-07 budget vote. While we are pleased the budget passed and believe it was a solid budget that kept costs down and added to the quality of the district's program for our students, we realize the close margin merits serious discussion and reflection. We will continue this dialogue and reach out to the community to better understand issues that may have 'played a role in the outcome."

Santino hosts community meeting by Joan Delaney



In his continuing effort to "bring government closer to the people," Councilman Anthony Santino hosted another meeting for the Baldwin/South Hempstead community at" the South Hempstead Fire House on May 11. Once again, the focus of resident questions and concerns was on quality of life issues - traffic, the proposed expansion at Molloy College, illegal home conversions and overoccupancy, blight, delays in proposed construction projects by private developers, police enforcement, and graffiti. In initial statements, Mr. Santino outlined the history of the proposed redevelopment at the intersection of Merrick Road and Grand Avenue. Charles Theofan, commissioner of planning and development, updated the progress. He noted that the town was poised to hire an appraisal firm to evaluate the properties which will be acquired by the town through the right of eminent domain. "Everyone will be adequately, properly

I 3


and generously paid for their land," he promised. The commissioner said that such an action has long been a right of municipalities in their attempts at urban renewal. He did note, however, that since the recent Supreme Court decision involving an eminent domain issue in Connecticut, controversy has arjsen over the right of a municipality to acquire property to turn over to another private owner rather than for an obvious public use. He noted, however, that eminent domain for private development is the only way both to stop blight and to create viable economic development. While Mr. Theofan recognized that eminent domain is a "drastic action," he stressed that the process is necessary to accomplish the town's goal of attracting national chains, hopefully a book store and clothing stores, to a community he described as "underserved by national chains." . He also stressed that residents of the rental apartments will be relocated

Giblyn students have eggs-ceptionally big hearts First graders at the Leo F. Giblyn School in Freeport made a concerted effort this spring to ensure that those who are less fortunate will have something to eat. The young humanitarians decided to make the morning a little brighter for those in need, so they helped cook eggs to put on empty breakfast tables. The inclusion students didn't head into the kitchen on their own. They were supervised by .their teachers Martha Yako and Robyn Burros, as well as Principal Harris Chandler and reading specialist Mary Kelly. School cook Peggy Barr did her part by boiling near-

ly 30 dozen eggs for the cause. Our Holy Redeemer Church picked up the eggs, which were donated by Compare Foods, and distributed them to needy families. "I've 1 been waiting for this day," enthuses first grader David Paiz. "We're helping people who have no food or money." Classmate Taylor Bossie says, "It makes me happy that these people are getting food." Larelle Davis agrees. "They don't have anything to eat," he observes. Benita Gomez points out that "people need to eat. I'm sad for these people," she adds, "but I'm happy that we're giving them eggs."

EGGS-CELLENT: Principal .Harris Chandler (back .left) oversees the presentation of 360 hard boiled eggs to Mr. Gaynor (right) of Our Holy Redeemer Church. Firstgraders (left to right) Jerion Parker, Jhonsel Collado and Anthony Salinas represent their class in making the donation.

Thanks to the voters To The Leader: I would like to thank the voters of

Baldwin for passing the library budget and for re-electing me as a trustee of the Baldwin Public Library for a third term. It has been my honor to • serve all the residents.of our community and I look forward to the next five years. Particularly, I wish to thank Kevin and Cheryl Kamen, Joan Zeitlin, Joseph Carroll, Ralph Rose, Mike Ackerman, Joe and Annette Alberti, Howard Gainsburg, Tony Lalli and my wonderful wife, Nora, for their loyal support and hard work. I will continue to work hard to serve., the library, residents and taxpayers of our community. .' '•'«"'•' Tony Tarantino

tinued support evidenced by the approval of the library's 2006-07 budget. This past year was an exciting one as we watched our new library unfold. If you have not had a chance to visit the library recently, we encourage you to stop in and see what a wonderful pjace you helped create. Take advantage of all we have to offer. Again, thanks to all who took the time to vote. We appreciate all the support the library board has received. Kevin B. Kamen, President Baldwin Public Library Board of Trustees

Healthy teens

other legislators to discuss the issue of sex education in our schools as well as the Healthy Teens Act. Our young people deserve more than "Just say no"; they deserve honest answers about avoiding unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections. The Healthy Teens Act provides funding to schools and community-based organizations to create and provide sex education that specifically addresses the needs of their communities' youth. There is an overwhelming consensus among voters - and 'across political, religious and gender lines - that age appropriate, medically accurate sex education should be taught in New York State public schools. Our senators clearly have the support of their constituents, but they need to hear from us. The New-York State Assembly has passed the Healthy Teens Act. Now we . must .encourage our senators to do the same: Sima W. Matthes JD

from page 6 railroad station today. These flyers should be laughable, but in reality tihey are just sad. It is my hope that the individual who' created these will be caught on camera, putting this garbage on people's cars. It is not just a smear against Mr. Cattano - is this nastiness supposed to represent anyone running against Mr. Cattano? I was absolutely mortified by this flyer - particularly as an educator. It was all I could do to keep from running around to every flyer with a red pen. There' are more constructive and effective ways to get what you want. Furthermore, if you feel strongly enough to send out another piece of creative writing, try using a spellchecker so you don't come across as a complete illiterate. Kimber'ly Endo

Hempstead commissioner addresses Baldwin chamber from page 2 the village. In Baldwin's case, the town will be asking for two proposals - one to include Nunley's carousel as part of the development and one which will not. He explained that having a carousel in the development.will not allow developers" to recoup as much of their costs. "The taxpayer would haye to pay more of the costs if the carousel is included," he said. Town authorities are not looking to have a "box store" but hope to attract-a national retailer like the Gap, Barnes and Noble or Bed Bath and Beyond. "We want to create a 'shop and stroll' environment that will encourage other businesses like restaurants." The complexity of redevelopment funding was also explained as Mr. Theofan noted that properties not technically eligible for community development funding based on census poverty statistics are eligible if they are within a designated urban renewal area. ' In addition to funding and business considerations, the federal Uniform Relocation Act also requires the town to relocate both businesses and residents

"wherever they want to go." He said that bi-lingual specialists whom the town will employ will be contacting each and every business and resident, explaining their rights and providing them with information on the law and the services available to them. For the first time, it was announced that the town is also interested in acquiring about 100 feet of the property behind homes which front onto Gale Avenue. Those private homes have properties of 350 feet in depth whicfi are, in most cases, not used and a tangle of weeds. Mr. Theofan said that the town would prefer a "face to face" negotiation on those properties but will designate the property . as part of the urban renewal area "just in case any owner wants to hold us up over it." He said that the town expects that owners will be glad to receive monies for these unused portions of property and also have lower tax assessments for the. smaller lots. He also said that the development can "accommodate the creek" which runs underneath the rear of the properties. Referring to a decade worth of delays involving various redevelopment plans, he envisioned being able to return to the

Chamber "next year at this time," to say that the town had acquired the properties and that the owners "had gotten the benefits of the sale." ' He predicted a two-year timeline for

construction with a three year goal of "restoring the downtown to what it has been, to better than it has been." He offered a "guarantee..,.that no one will be able to say that the town treated them unfairly." ' a.

Windmills - green victory or corporate ploy? project online by 2008. The turbines will need their own offshore substation that will each use a diesel generation that holds 230 to 280 gallons of diesel. "There will be a triple containment system and spill control program in place," said Mr. Coakley. But FPL has never built ah offshore iwind park, even though they have 45 . wind facilities and a total of 6,000 turbines located in 15 states. "We could be .the first one," explained Mr. Kralovich. "And if they don't work, who will clean it up? We will." But Mr. Coakley pointed -to offshore wind projects in Europe as successful models that could curtailoil consumption. He anticipates that there will be a "32-to35 percent capacity factor with 7,400 hours a year of some kind of generation from the turbines," said Mr. Coakley.

What will it do to our fishing grounds? How will it affect marine and bird life? What are the monetary savings, if any? ' What about navigational routes? What about aviation? Is this a homeland security issue? Is this really an answer to finding alternative solutions to our energy crisis? We aren't getting answers to these questions."

235,000 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), 489 tons of sulfur dioxide (SOx) and 212 tons of nitrogen oxides (NOx). "This is an economic scam," said one man at the meeting. Mr. Schary took the podium and told the audience "to follow the money." Mr. Schary held up a halogen light bulb and said, "These cost $1.88. Why not give every household six of these and it would take care of the 40 wind mills. Now that's a better solution." • (

Other complications : In addition to the environmental concerns, there are concerns about navigational shipping lines as well as problems with radar interference for airplanes. According to a United Kingdom study, radar interference was detected at 1.5 nautical miles from,the wind turbines at the North Hoyle wind plant there. A 2004 UK study said, "Clutter in the radar display, due to the • presence of wind'turbines, was found to be considerable." Residents are also concerned, about placing these windmills off a New York State park '(Jones Beach) and one of our national seashore treasures. "This is a place for the people," said one man. "You can look out and see the . sea. This place, this park, has -been entrusted to us and we must keep it in a certain way; so that the next generation can have it as well. National and state parks have always been under assault. But these are inviolate places. This is a corporate project, not a public project." Bruce Piel agreed: "Open space is under attack. We have to complain and make it loud and clear that this is not what we want." • "To introduce an industrial factory there [near Jones Beach] is' alien to me," said Jay Pitti. "This whole project is designed by corporate America. We came to America and colonized this land. We kept changing the-environment, moving west. We marched across this continent and exploited the land all the way to the Pacific coast. "Now LIPA and' their cohorts have come- up with the ingenious idea to come back east and exploit our resources, our ocean."

The Salvation Army of Nassau County urgently needs volunteers to staff their Emergency Mobile Canteen located at the Mineola office. This vehicle is sent to major fires, flooding,-police activities and emergencies in the county and is operated by trained volunteers who provide emergency responders and disaster survivors with snacks, meals, hot and cold drinks from supplies onboard the canteen. The canteen crew is made up of a driver, and up to three other volunteers to assure continuous emergency disaster support. Service of this kind can be most rewarding and provide the volunteer with opportunities to be helpful in their community. Additional service is sometimes provided in other nearby counties in the Greater New York area. ' . If you have a driver's license, interest or background training in emergency response, and wish to be helpful in your community and are willing to respond when emergencies happen, the Salvation Army would be interested in talking with you about volunteering for the Emergency Disaster Service program. You must be 18 years of age to serve as a crew member, have a clean driver's record to operate the vehicle and the motivation to help our first responders. Times convenient to your schedule are established. If you wish further information, or would like to join the team, contact Gerald Johns, Nassau County Director, at 747-4902 at the Mineola office. We would welcome your interest in this very important Salvation Army community service.
