From delightful and d-lovely to de-mucking

REUNION: Recently nine women of the Freeport Class of 1961 had a Reunion at Water Lilly's on the Nautical Mile. They reminisced about the wonderful years they had growing up in Freeport. All of the women are successful in their respective fields..From left are Bessie Meyers-Jones. Joanne Eisenstein-McLeod, Susan Targia-Algeri Elaine Carter-Porter, Elaine Balchi Garavuso,Karen Provenzano, Sandi Ness-Lisi, Betty Langsam-Pricer and Emily Moore.

by Micheilo Rea They, call themselves the "muckrakers." They are a group of newsroom staffers from New Orleans' daily newspaper, The TimesPicayune, who in recent months have spent many weekend hours "demucking" one another's homes. One of the "muckrakers," a photojOurnalist named David Grunfeld, was a luncheon speaker at the New York Press Association's spring convention last April. Mr. Grunfeld was invited to show New York's community newspapers in detail how The Times-Picayune staff functioned before, during and after Hurricane Katrina. Their performance won them a Pulitzer. Their personal stories, are more amazing yet. Mr. Grunfeld's photos of the hurricane and its aftermath were com= pelling, but more-so were the photos taken just days before the conventiorj, in late March, of homes close to the levee breeches, which looked as if tliey had been flooded just yesterday. A photo of a mile long pile of debris, which included cars, appliances, household goods and clothing showed clearly how little recovery had taken place. While Mr. Grunfeld's picture story focused on the calamity created by the levee failures in New Orleans, New York's community newspaper publishers knew that the entire Gulf Coast had been battered by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and 'that community, newspapers throughout Louisiana and Mississippi had dealt with more than their fair share of adversity. The NYPA board of directors moved quickly, voting to change the location of their scheduled June board meeting to New Orleans.-NYPA staff worked with staff at the Louisiana and Mississippi Press Association's to arrange meetings with publishers from both states, to coordinate a tour of the levee system breeches, to talk with the Louisiana Recovery Authority about'what is being done to assist the residents of the homes rendered uninhabitable by the hurricanes, and to talk with fishermen, fanners and restaurateurs also victimized by the storms. The publishers also planned to help replant a city park (more than a thousand prized oak trees were lost after .marinating in salt water for weeks) and to help "de-muck" the home of a Times Picayune copy editor. Thirty-one New Yorkers traveled to New Orleans June 15. What they saw and heard is Unimaginable. More than 200,000 homes and 18,000 businesses, spread across 35 miles, and several parishes, destroyed. Small (300 square feet), white FEMA trailers in parking lots, front yards and on side streets - now home to many New Orleansresidents.Empty Wal-Mart stores, abandoned McDonald's restuarants, shuttered gas stations and deserted strip malls. Homes had water lines as high as ten feel. Homes bearing spray-painted codes indicating the date the house was searched,-the agency that conducted the search, the state the volunteers were from, and the number found dead-including pets. Homes demolished or plowed from their foundations by the raging water. Homes which "marinated" in several feet of water for weeks. Homes which have already been "de-mucked," former contents piled high near the curb. Libraries, schools, restaurants and stores, in similar condition. They also saw pure, pluck. Despite grim statistics detailing the extent of the destruction, the number of residents who haven't returned, issues with the levee system as yet unresolved, and forecasts for a ne\y hurricane season,.courage, determination and fortitude was on display everywhere. _The Louisiana Recovery Authority has committed $2.5 billion to

THE EYEGLASS CLUB is a new Archer "Street School Club for students with glasses. It meets once a week to learn why people need glasses, how to care for them and to help with self-esteem issues that can occur. The club gives the students a'place to discuss issues related to wearing glasses as wefl as a place to be themselves and have fun. The club organized a sehoolwide used glasses, drive recently. It collected about 160 pairs of glasses. A few of the students are shown here presenting the donated glasses to the Freeport Lions Club, who in turn will donate them to third world countries for distribution. From left are Lion Secretary Joan Ewen, Cesar Tobar, Lion President Jim Ewen, Amrit Kaur, Jaquawn Nembhard, teacher Janet Rogers and Principal Paula Lein. •

repair, rebuild and replace critical infrastructure. The LRA is working to secure full funding for comprehensive levee protection and coastal restoration. $350 million will be invested to support the'renewal of Louisiana's economy. Health care reform, the provision of social services and environmental issues are being addressed. Workers-have already removed 25 times more debris from Louisiana than was removed from the World Trade Center site. Shrimpers and oysterfishers, who pre-Katrina lived hard lives, working feverishly to gel their boats in the water, despite the absence of docks, ice. refrigerated warehouses, delivery systems and employees, are lobbying Ihe New York City restaurant community, encouraging big-name restaurants to brand, promote and use Louisiana seafood. The fishermen boast that the catch is better than ever-bigger, sweeter, richer. . .

Times-Picayune staffers repeatedly (old New York's publishers why saving New Orleans is important. Tim multi-generational, ethnically diverse city, famous for its food, its music, its culture and its outrageous characters, is a one-of-a-kind treasure which must be tescued, they said. ''New Orleans is worthfightingfor" this from a group of people with-still-uninhabitable homes, trashed vehicles, neighboi hoods and sense of community reduced to piles of ruble and memories. So while coverage of Katrina and the levee breeches is included in every issue, coverage of education, sports news, restaurant reviews, book reviews..political columns, living pages and lots of color'photos - are also published. Life goes on. anil maybe someday liltin New Orleans will be the way h used to be.

RESETTING PRJORITIES...Summer is a good time for both individuals and organizations to reset their priorities for the coming year. For the most part,-families function on a different schedule in the summer,, without most of the meetings, activities or obligations that the school year brings. So, too, do local organizations, often taking a hiatus and curtailing regular meetings. After a short time to stop, take a deep breath, relax, and simply enjoy the break. It would be beneficial for everyone to take stock. What worked during the past year and what didn't? How could things be done differently? In families, everyone could sit down to assess the many obligations that family members assumed. Which impacted on everyone else? Which were valuable and which were not? Has a child lost interest in a particular activity? Does it make sense to continue paying for every lesson, to drive to every activity, or is it time instead for a child to begin to whittle down his interests and begin to focus? Is it time for a child or teenager to start taking more responsibility for the activi-ties he professes to enjoy? And are those activities interfering with much; more important goals, both of the child and of the family?

The same kind of review holds true for organizations. One of the most important questions to ask is: does this year's slate of officers contain basically the same people as last year's. Is any thought being given to succession, to building the organization, to reaching out for new members? Does the group even acknowledge and try to follow its own by-laws? When it comes to activities, does the organization evaluate just what objectives an activity is supposed to be achieving? If it's a fundraiser, is it really raising enough money to warrant the effort? Should another activity be substituted or should the present activity be modified? If the activity is simply a "feel-good" activity or one to raise the profile of the organization, is it effective? And if it isn't, what's the reason? Is it that the activity itself no longer interests people, or perhaps could the activity be modified so that there is a better outcome? No one should think that they can do the same things in the same way and produce a different outcome. In science experiments, that's what variables are all about. After replicating the same process with the same variables and getting unsatisfactory results, scientists might only have to tweak one of the variables ever so slightly for a significant change to occur.

The Gardening Angels want you!f . Baldwin's Gardening Angels are always looking for some more friendly helpers. Those interested may join the group on Tuesday mornings at 9 a.m. at their usual meeting place on the northwest corner of

Grand Avenue and Sunrise Highway. Wear gardening gloves and bring small gardening implements if you have them. Each week's gardening task lasts approximately 1 1/2 hours.

bring more hands to the task or different hands. A mom who is the family's chauffeur might see if there is a better method of car pooling available. A local group might decide to have some joint meetings with another community group whose interests are compatible. Perhaps an activity needs to be better advertised or a process developed to ensure follow-up interest and participation. In business, whether it be corporate America, education or government, people are sometimes hesitant to suggest change for fear of making a mistake. Such an atmosphere, unfortunately, stifles improvement and almost guarantees that a problem won't be addressed until it reaches crisis proportions. Such a mentality is the death knell of a business and it is especially unnecessary in a local community organization which is supposed to be a friendly group of like-minded individuals. It is even more inappropriate in a family where members are supposed to be there for each other's mutual love and support. Former Superintendent of Schools Gene Lanzaro once noted that change is inevitable. He always stressed that the question that then remained is not. "Do you want change?" but rather. "Do you want to help manage and orchestrate the change that will occur?" Summertime is a good opportunity for both families and organizations to discuss how they will accomplish that task.

Summertime is a good time to consider just what tweaking might need to he done. Without the pressure of the moment impinging, the less structured days of summer allow people to think a bit more broadly about goals and methods. An organization's board of directors might get together for a cool drink and conversation and discuss what worked and what didn't. A family might set aside one evening to sit down together and rethink the year. It is a good time to remember where there was conflict, arguments and stress, and without accusations, try to figure out what can be done to alleviate them. When my younger daughter started middle school, the day always began with my having to call her numerous times to get up. She would turn over, muttering "Just a few more minutes." I would threaten that if she missed the bus, she would have to walk - a threat that both she and I knew would never happen. By the time she left, both of us were annoyed with each other. Finally, I simply gave her an alarm clock and told her to figure out for herself what time she needed to get up. The bus still came at the same time, she never missed it, and the arguing slopped. We just needed to tweak one little part of the process. Sometimes the solution for both families and groups is to reschedule an activity to a different time. Sometimes, we need only to simplify some of the components. Sometimes it's necessary to

Baldwin chamber networks

First Presbyterian Church

by Joan Delaney

The Baldwin Chamber of Commerce meeting of June 20, the last regular meeting until September, ended the year on a high note with positive news regarding the town's proposed revitalization projecfand a cordial period of networking among business colleagues. Co-presidents Ginny Foley and Doris Duffy updated the group on their most recent meeting with Charles T. Theofan Town of Hempstead commissioner of planning and development concerning the revitalization/urban renewal project proposed for the five acres at the intersection of Grand Avenue and Merrick Road. The commissioner had attended the organization's May meeting and promised to invite chamber representatives to monthly meetings at which he would provide progress reports and the chamber could provide appropriate input. Ms. Duffy noted that several of the Chamber's previous initiatives have proved helpful in this process. In April, 2000, the Chamber and the Town of Hempstead shared the costs of a profes-'. sionally conducted "Strategic , Downtown Improvement Plan." That process included numerous meetings with various focus groups and provided detailed demographic information describing the community's education and income levels, housing, family patterns, interests, needs, and wants. Additionally, the plan outlined recommendations for improvements to the physical structure of the downtown area. Ms. Duffy said that the chamber incorporated much of this information in marketing materials they prepared and provided to the -company FranchiseHelp, with the intent of introducing Baldwin to retailers. . . " -• She said that the both the improvement plan and the marketing materials have been important sources of informa- • tion about Baldwin that have allowed their meetings with the be "working meetings with a true exchange of information."

William Ashley Memorial To The Leader: He was symbolic of "The Greatest Generation." He was an integral part of the Freeport school community for over four decades. He was our teacher, coach, administrator and mentor. He projected excellence, demanded hard work and helped us to achieve beyond our own expectations. His record of 130 victories, an undefeated streak of 31 games and five Rutgers Cups placed Freeport in the annals of high school football on a national level. He introduced lacrosse to Freeport and developed five future All-Americans. He was William "Bill" Ashley, a true 'inspiration for us who are alumni..

Mayor Bill Glacken and the Freeport trustees agreed to name the Cleveland Avenue athletic fields after Coach Ashley as a dedication to his memory and honor. I am now seeking your financial assistance to purchase an appropriate sign to mark this complex. Your-donations should be made to "The William "Bill" Ashley Memorial Fund" for any amount your means may allow.

ronmental issues that need to be addressed, and those questions will be answered as part of the federal environmental' review process," said LI PA Chairman Richard M. Kessel in a prepared statement. Just follow the money But environmental activist Richard Senary of North Bellmore said much more would need to be done than just an environmental impact study before any such project could be deemed feasible to undertake. "In addition to an EIS, a thorough background check of the companies involved needs to be done, as well as a complete financial analysis of the deal." It is clearly a case ~of following the money first, he said, with regard to the project. Burt C u n n i n g h a m , vice-president of LIPA, reacted to Mr. Schary's comment of following the money by telling The Leader that Mr. Schary's comment is "just not true. He is giv-

ing out a lot of information that lias no basis in fact." He said that LIPA was.involved in a competitive RFP process in which Florida Power and Light won out because it is the biggest wind producer in the country. "It just made sense for us" to go with them, he said. While it is true thai FPL has no experience in wind farms on water, he said FPL was in a good position to learn from successful water farms in Europe. Bob Young said if there is a choice between following the oil money and environmental money, he'd prefer to follow environmental money. "This is cap""itali'siTf at work." he said, where "those who have the money to invest will get returns on it. For information on the MMS process contact Doug Slitor. project manager, at 703-787-1030. For questions about scoping for the EIS contact Dr. Thomas Bjerstedl at 504-736-5743. ~Douglas Finlay
