Nassau County Legislator Dave Mejias, (17th LD), who is opposing Mr. King on the Democratic ticket, offered a look into Mr. King's votes on security"measures and w bills that came before the Congress, and Q found them questionable. "He's either ineffective, irrelevant or just W plain asleep at the switch," Mr. Mejias contended, pointing to 14 instances in which Mr. King voted against increases to security for New York. Among the bills Mr. Mejias says has raised considerable questions about Congressman King's record, include voting against a $27.8 million increase for an initiative to keep raw nuclear materials away from terrorists; opposing screening port cargo for nuclear materials; opposing increased funding for local first responders;

voting to kill efforts to add an additional $3.5 million in Homeland Security Funding and to increase chemical plant security; voting against fulfilling 9/11 Commission recommendations on border security and immigration; voting against funding critically ignored homeland security issues; voting against an amendment to increase funding for Emergency Management Performance Grants; and voting against increasing funding for rail security by up to $50 million, to name afew. Mr. Mejias said of Mr. King that he supports President Bush's administration's "priorities above those of those New Yorkers he is supposedly representing." Mr. Mejias contended that Mr. King is indeed "one of Bush's generals" when in fact "..the Bush admininstration has declared war on New York..." which was capped by Mr. King's comment last year that "every night before I got to bed I thank God that George W. Bush is president." That, said Mr, Mejias, is why "I'm running for Congress."

in the deaths of people that could include the elderly or people under medical care. "We have to be very, very careful . when we make that decision," he said. Mr. Winters noted there are certain designated shelters in the county, notably the Nassau County Community College field house, the Mitchel Field Complex and various buildings at Nassau Community College, but these and other public shelters are intended for "special needs" individuals such as the elderly, the handicapped and medical patients. Mr. Winters also urged that persons prepare "go-kits" that would be ready at all times. Such kits would include important papers, water, clothes, flashlight, some cash and other essentials. Dan Greenberg, a disaster services volunteer with the American Red Cross in Nassau County, said people should also pack any necessary medications, a first aid kit, radio and small tools. Nancy Lynch of the Pet Save Coalition said arrangements should also be made for the care of family pets, particularly since shelters will not house animals. There are about 620,000 dogs and cats in the county, according to Ms. Lynch. Pet owners should set aside a three-torive-day food and water supply for their animal and have a photo of themselves with their pet. She also said pets should be kept in crates large enough for the animal to stand up and turn around in. John Brooks of the Nassau County Office of Management and Budget discussed several changes made by insurance carriers in the past several years. He noted that, after Hurricane Andrew in 1992, several insurance companies

Companies also have added windstorm deductible clauses to policies that provide for a two-percent deductible on the total value of the home. Flood insurance, which covers Hood- oo ing from outside the home, now requires 10 a 30-day advanced purchase. Mr. Brooks urged property owners to "stay current with their policy." Peter Reinharz. of the county attor- m ney's office discussed the role of the county government during a hurricane emergency and the effect on individuals. He said the law gives local county executives "an extraordinary amount of authority in ordering evacuations, setting curfews, cordoning off areas and other actions." Mr. Reinharz said homeowners must have a recent photo ID along with their address in order to re-enter their neighborhoods and homes after an area has been reopened to residents. Theodore Fisch of the state Emergency Management Office discussed his agency's role in helping to coordinate and plan for emergency assistance to an affected area.

An ongoing miracle The rainy skies parted just above the Normarr Levy Park and .Preserve last Thursday while the Overlook Park and Preserve committee made its annual tour, led by Deputy Commissioner Mike McConnell of Hempstead Town's Sanitation Department. So he was able to point out new constructions like a covered bus stop by the fishing pier with a bench dedicated to the memory of maintenance supervisor Bill Roberts. Another Eagle Scout "project in proce'ss is a butterfly garden at the rentrance to the.preserve. ... . . . . . Parks personnel have constructed brush piles where small animals such as rabbits and small birds can hide from predators like the osprey and red fox. Wildflowers are being planted in areas where weeds once grew. New signs on trash cans remind fishermen to cast off their extra bait to the fish in the waters below. Jay Pitti, OPAS founder, arid founding member Marian Fraker-Gutin recalled a series of serendipitous events that led from his first inspiration early in the 1980s that the closed landfill should become a preserve, a epiphany that itself was born of his childhood spent in the woods and marshes of the,still undeveloped south Merrick. They were pleased to see that a new generation of rangers led by Sanitation Commissioner Dick Ronan of North Merrick and Mr. McConnell of Bellmore have taken up the cause of preserving a wonderful natural landmark for .the enjoyment of visitors. Perhaps you have to experience the preserve atop a former landfill to realize just what a miracle .born of the combined talents of the commissioners, .rangers, OPAS and South Shore Audubon Society members, kayakers, Scouts and other volunteers it really is. The preserve is located off Merrick Road east vof the Meadowbrook Parkway, and is open dawn to dusk. Admission is free. Call the Town of Hempstead at 378-4210, ext. 309 for more information.

iust write MRS. HOFFMAN, GATES AND BUFFET.... Back in 1969 when my husband, my daughter and I moved to Baldwin, the first person who greeted us was Estelle Hoffman, then in her 70s, a neighbor who lived across from our home. After saying hello and discreetly asking us a few well-chosen questions, she discovered that I was a Catholic and had formerly taught English in a public school. As my husband, his brother and brother-in-law unpacked our moving truck, she began to tell me that the religious education, program for public school children at St. Christopher's needed some volunteer teachers. I hesitated and remarked that I hadn't even unpacked and also wanted time to acclimate my daughter to her new surroundings. Mrs. Hoffman gently smiled and commented, "You know, my dear, to whom much is given, much is expected" Last week, I heard Melinda Gates use the same quotation. At a press conference with her husband, the founder of Microsoft, and investor Warren Buffet, she was helping to field questions on just what Mr. Buffet's $31.8 billion donation would mean to the Gates

dolano Foundation which is already funded wjth over $29 billion of their own money. In fact, just recently, Bill Gates indicated that while he would stay on at Microsoft, he would be turning over the day-to-day operation of the company so that he could devote more time to the work of their foundation. Now, Mr. Buffet will be joining them as a trustee although one who is very willing to let them do the lion's share of the decisionmaking. Mrs. Gates said that when they first became engaged in foundation work, they soon discovered that they wanted to do more. Mr. Gates noted that some years ago when Ted Turner pledged his money for charity, he criticized other wealthy Americans for not doing likewise. Mr. Gates said that their approach would be to let people know how joyful the process of giving can be. He said that they were "having fun in giving." All three spoke of the luck of the draw. Mr. Gates called himself one of the "lucky wealthy" Mr. Buffet spoke of the luck one has depending on the womb in which a person has been nurtured. Mrs. Gates stressed, "the enormous inequity in the world."

With these three great minds involved, one can already see that unlike many government initiatives, this foundation will not simply throw money at a problem. The logical thinking that is essential in creating a computer, in formulating software and in analyzing business opportunities will be brought to the process of philanthropy. Mr. Buffet described this venture as "intelligent private philanthropy" which is based on "rationality and world empathy.". The Gales Foundation has earmarked two main areas for its giving - global health and public education in America. Too many people think that curing illness is simply a matter of making medications cheaper and available. The minds behind the Gates Foundation make it clear that there is much more involved. Many medications can only be taken with food. Some starving people could not even swallow medicines should they became available. And so, the foundation backs up the question several steps to a point most people don't even recognize as an essential part of solving the problem: How do you provide an economic environment that allows people to

acquire sufficient food on which to live? How do you deliver and keep the integrity of medications intact in hot. humid climates?

How do you provide an educational process that makes it possible for people to take their medications properly? How do you provide economic alternatives to degrading "sex industry" professions which cause patterns ,of behavior that produce HIV/AIDS? It was a joy to listen to Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffet. Together they represent what is good about Capitalism in the hands of the right people. Interestingly, Mr. Buffet initially only intended to give his money away upon his death, but his wife's recent death changed his plans. Not completely answered in their press conference was the question iWhen did you know that you wanted to give away so much of your money? It's hard to know the answer to that. Mr. Buffet does not follow the lavish lifestyle so typical of many, of (he rich and famous. He still lives in the same home he has lived in for 40 years in Kansas City. And while the Gates fami(continued on page 11)

Overoccupancy: This is still the US of A' Full staffing makes a difference in the number of illegal landlords caught and brought to justice, Freeport Villlage Trustee Don Mauersberger told the Freeport Republican Club recently. In 2005, the village made 943 attempts to investigate complaints, found Overoccupancy in 136 ca^es, executed 21 search warrants when refused entry and won two injunctions to get people out of unsafe conditions. During the first half of 2006 alone, with an increased staff, including three bilingual investigators, they made 1,239 attempts, found 187 cases of Overoccupancy, and executed 38 search warrants, he reported. "This is still the US of A. We have to do things by the book," he explained to make sure the property owner's rights are protected. Investigators identify themselves

and ask residents to sign consent forms written in English or Spanish. Those who call the hotline at 377-2230 should be calling because of a real concern about overoccupancy, not just to get even with a neighbor or because they are envious of his new "McMansion." Calls may be anonymous, but the building department needs as much information as possible in order to investigate the complaint. The "battle is ongoing," he added, with prosecutors, the building department and police pooling resources. The village trustees get updates on progress every two weeks. Overoccupancy strains the village's resources and causes conditions that are unsafe to the tenants and also to police and firefighters, says this firefighter with over 40 years experience. Police and firefighters report unsafe conditions as soon as they learn

of them and will not leave a fire or crime scene before the building inspectors show up. However, schools cannot share information regarding possible overoccupancy with the village by federal law, Mr. Mauersberger noted.

Freeport's Republican Club president is also the village's prosecutor in overoccupan-

cy cases. Howard Colton says most offenders get a fine of $ I .(XX) the first time, but hardcore repeat offenders face jail time and are fined so much, they arc selling because the business is no longer profitable to them. They can stall for a while as they go through the application process fora two-family permit but eventually must face the music.

Bide-A-Wee, a beautiful place where love awaits by Cristina Tqscano Bide-A-Wee is a Scottish phrase that is translated to, "Stay A While." That is exactly what I did last Saturday at BideA-Wee Animal Shelter in Wantagh, due to the kindness of Dolores Stormo, manager of special programs, outreach and. education. Bide-A-Wee was founded in New York City by Flora D'Auby Jenkins Kibbe in 1903, an animal lover who wanted to do her part to help stray animals. At the time not only were cats and dogs available for adoption, but horses too. Bide-A-Wee became more and morefilled up, so expansion was necessary. They expanded to Wantagh where over 10 acres were waiting for the shelter. Animals came pouring in and even in the 1940s during gas rationing, there were special Bide-A-Wee cars to transport animals and supplies. Bide-A-Wee was getting even busier and added a facility in Westhampton in 1966. Now

there are three locations, each with pets up for adoption and a pet graveyard. You would think that it would be sad walking through a pet graveyard, but I don't agree. It was sweet to see what different owners wrote about and called their pets. There were pet graves from all the way back in 1915. It shows that for years people have felt the love of their pets. There was even a special section called "Feathered Friends." The graveyard was not upsetting to walk through because it shows that many pets have loved and shared many good times with their owners, and that is what counts. If you want to adopt a pet, this is how it would work. First you would fill out an application. This includes 'your phone number, name, and other important information. Next, a qualified staffer would talk to you about getting a pet and show you around the shelter. You would decide whether you would like to adopt a dog or

cat. Then you could decide whether you would like a small or big pet, a lazy or active one, or just maybe fall in love with one you see. Now you would go to the getacquainted room. You should bring all family members and any other pets. This is to make sure you all get along. If you feel more comfortable, you can take your pet home for a few days to see how it works out. Once you have adopted your pet for a $ 100 fee, make sure to submit your "happy tails" to happytails @ Many people are superstitious about having black cats. Unfortunately, that means some black cats are there for years, never to go to a real home. You can help. You can do this by offering to foster a cat for one month at a time. Bide-A-Wee will pay for supplies, food, and medical care for the pet. To foster you fill out an application, meet with a Bide-A-Wee worker, and get acquainted with the pet. Now you take the dog or cat home for a month. If you wish to keep the pet for another month you should fill out another application. You can do this month after month, up to six months. Contracts are signed monthly between the foster guardian and a Bide-a-Wee representative. Maybe you will even decide to adopt the pet. By taking in a pet, whether fostering or adopting, you can positively impact his/her life. Before allowing dogs or pets to be adopted, Bide-A-Wee gives them a full checkup to make sure they are healthy. Then the pet is given age-appropriate vaccinations, and is spayed/neutered. If you want a pet, look no further. Bide-AWee is the place to go. Bide-A-Wee is an organization that takes donations, but if you are low on cash, there is more you can do. You can cfonate-items. Bide-A-Wee needs slightly or unused towels. By bringing just a few in you can really help. Also, they get many toys for the pets by donations.

Make sure the toy is pet safe with no small parts that they can choke on. For more information you can call Bide-AWee in Wantagh at 785-4079. If a pet's owner is not able to care for their pet anymore and their pet is 8 or older. Bide-A-Wee can offer a retirement home for the pel in Westhampton at a charge. Every six months the pet would receive a check-up to make sure that s/he is healthy. If you love animals, but either want lo do more for animals or don't feel like owning one. you can volunteer. You must^be 18 or older to do so. As a volunteer you work with frightened or homesick animals to make them happy and friendly. You can bottle-feed puppies and kittens, or take other animals for a walk. This will make you feel really good that you did this and you will get more than your fair share of kisses and purrs.

What Do You Respect? Heidi E. Warm You know... nothing articuates the importance of the "mesage" like working in a school; especially when the kids 'ou work with come to imitate what you do and/or say. Let us consider money, for instance... Now we all enow, at least in this part of the world that it is a highly leveled asset. How do we discriminate (and help our ihildren to discern) where to draw the line around issues of money and its significance as a contingent reward. I was always bothered by the fact that drug dealers ire placed on a level playing field with bankers, doctors, awyers, and directors of philanthropic organizations; by quite a few based on their financial plane. This is simply because all groups-rich, poor, academic, and aborer unfortunately place the highest premium on money, its acquisition, and universal recognition as a measure of accomplishment. This leaves those of us ivho are commissioned to act as examples, as in the case of being employed by the school system, in a bit of a quandary. Given our present proximity to Father's Day, I recall my own father's personal, childhood history of being on Public assistance. ' I've heard of the concept of character and its frequent juxtaposition with qualities such as empathy, pride, loyalty, respect, and integrity. My question is his... Can we hold ourselves (and our children, for whom we model) to a standard high and balanced enough to have both a healthy attitude towards money as well as character? Here we go with the opinion again... You knew it was coming. Let us take a closer look at school personnel. Remember the scandalous Roslyn School District affair? The superintendent was on the take for 8 million dollars while financing the lifestyles of lovers on both coasts of the country, simultaneously. On a far less spectacular scale, 1 am aware of a number of situations of teachers becoming pregnant while not married. This was actually a news issue not long ago where a teacher working in a Catholic school was asked to resign, given her situation. It came close to home, since I had been involved in a cabaret group that rehearsed at St. Rose of Lima parish in Massapequa, where the case took place. Liberal as I am, and nonjudgmental as I attempt to be, 1 must say... it was appropriate that she be asked to resign. No, I don't care what you do in your own home, on your own time. Feel free to disgrace yourself all you want. But don't you dare then get up in front of a classroom full of children and present yourself as an example... not to my children. What are we doing to our kids? I'll tell you what we're doing... in addition to confusing the heck out of them about what's right and wrong... we're whacking them over the head with a standard of LESS-THAN-ness. I know that for myself, admittedly selfishly; that when I'm old; disabled and under a surgeon's knife, I want the doctor to take pride and be equally as selfish about the image and the workmanship (s)he puts forth. What do we hold sacred... (if anything) as a society?... as educators? Furthermore, What are teaching our daughters about dating, marriage, and fidelity? Maybe the educational industry is just so desperate that they'll hire anybody, promoting any behavior, from embezzlement to out-of-wedlock child bearing... By the way, isn't the single-parent family situation a bit-time prognosticator for bad stuff happening??? Read the research. You know what?... Let me give Randi* a call. *(Randi Weingarten is the long-time president of the UFT.)

DNA legislation finally passes by Laura Schofer State Democrats and Republicans .alike finally came to an agreement and VO voted on Tuesday, June 20, to pass legisI lation that will require' all persons conoo victed of any felony crimes and some misdemeanors in the state of New York to provide a DNA sample for inclusion in the New York State DNA Databank. The bill, S.5342/A.8676, has" passed in the Senate seven times, most recently in February, but an agreement was not reached with the Assembly until certain provisions were placed in the legislation. Lawmakers agreed to remove the statue of limitations on rape and will 3 ensure that the DNA samples of innoOH


cent persons never convicted of any crime be removed from any government run databases. Another sticking point between the Senate and Assembly was which individuals convicted of misdemeanors would be included in the state DNA databank. . The Legislature finally agreed .that individuals whose misdemeanor convictions involve violence, threats of violence, menacing or stalking behavior or offenses against children are included. The law has many supporters, including Republicans Senator Charles Fuschillo (SthSD), Assemblyman David McDonough (19thAD) and Assemblyman Thomas McKevitt (13thAD). But the law has local Democratic support as well. At a press con-

ference last week, Nassau County District' Attorney Kathleen Rice, along with Nassau County Executive Thomas Suozzi, announced their support for the legislation. "DNA samples are the fingerprints of the 21st century," said District Attorney Rice in a press release. "We need this expansion to successfully prosecute the guilty and to fully exonerate the innocent. It's incumbent upon law enforcement to use every scientific tool at our disposal to protect our communities, our victims, and our innocent." County Executive Thomas Suozzi agreed. "This important bill gives law enforcement agencies a crucial crime-fighting tool, allowing them to solve all kinds of crimes much more

quickly, while reducing the chances of false arrest." Governor Pataki, upon hearing that the legislature approved the bill, said "I am pleased that both houses came to an, agreement on these critical items that will help improve the lives of New Yorkers. In particular, the expansion of the DNA databank, and the elimination of the statue of limitations on rape are two critically important crime fighting initiatives that we have advanced for the last several years that will make our homes and our streets safer." Governor Pataki first proposed .expanding the New York State DNA Databank back in 1999. The federal (continued on page 15)

Studying the sea stars by Sarah Richards More than 400 educators and students who like to do nothing better than study sea stars, listen for the songs of the Humpback Whales and take children strolling on the edges of salt marshes to watch fiddler crab, mummichug and Great Blue Heron action, are coming from throughout the United Stales, including Hawaii and Alaska, and a half dozen foreign countries, Japan, the Cayman Islands in the Caribbean, Pago Pago in the South Pacific, on July 23, at the Brooklyn Campus of Long Island University and Kingsborough Community College in Brooklyn. "A City of Islands" is the theme recognizing that status for New York City and also for Brooklyn, being part of Long Island. They will be fanning out for lectures, field trips and workshops - a talk by the world's famous painter of whales, Richard Ellis, underneath the replica of the 100-foot blue whale in theoiew Milstein Hall of Ocean Life at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, field trips to Fire Island National Seashore and the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation and its aquarium in Riverhead, the Bronx Zoo, exploring the beach and doing some birding in Gateway National Park, touring Ellis Island, SCUBA diving on an historic shipwreck, fishing from a chartered boat and choosing from 120 workshops, one "Aussie Kids Turning the Tide," being given by high school students from Australia, showing how they are educating their peers, about the environment. The Website is which features an appeal to save koala bear habitats. Heidi Schaffner. pre-K teacher from Savannah, Georgia, in her workshop, "Flatfish in Action: Activities for K-5," shows educators how they can teach their students to imitate flounder and fluke, which start life swimming like regular fish until their heads migrate sidewise and they lie flat on their sides. Ms. Schaffner's students start out like eggs, swim ("wriggle on the floor and catch crustaceans") like average fish, then turn their heads and lie flat on the floor. Dr. Carl Safina, founder and president of the Blue Ocean Institute, Cold Spring Harbor, dedicated as he says to "helping more people realize the awesome power and beauty of the sea and humanity's deep connection with ocean life," is giving a workshop "About Blue Ocean," at '.the LIU Brooklyn Campus. His first book, "Song for the Blue Ocean," was chosen a New York Times Notable Book the Year in both 1998 and 1999. The extravaganza of workshops scheduled on Long Island include, "Stakeholders: After the Storms (Kalrina and Rita, 2005)," "Assessing the Potential Effects of Underwater Sound on Marine Animals," "Making Marine Science Accessible to English Language Learners," "Fish Make Sense," "Harmful Algal Blooms," "A Threat to Coastal Ecosystem Health," some about estuaries with one focused on the fishes of these salt marsh habitats and virtual reality presentations. "People think of New York City as the financial or entertainment capital and associate Long Island with bumper

to bumper traffic," says Sarah Richards, associate chair, science department, St. Ann's School, Brooklyn Heights, who is conference chairperson along with Thomas Greene, marine science teacher at Kingsborough Community College. "The conference is held in a different . place each year (Hawaii last year)," she explains, "so marine professionals and students can learn a whole lot about another area. We want them to see the "A City of Islands," which incudes Long Island's Borough of Brooklyn, for their estuaries, beaches, maritime forests and a world famous place for birding, Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Gateway National Seashore. Hosting the conference is the way members of the New York State Marine, Education Association (NYSMEA) is observing its 30lh anniversary. "It was organized in 1976," says One of the founders, Dr. Robert Abrams, Westbury, retired director of Outdoor/Environmental Education, Great Neck Public

DNA legislation finally passes from page 10 government and 43 other states including Pennsylvania. New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts and Vermont, currently require all felony offenders to he included in their stales' DNAdalahanks. Prior to this legislation, New York state law required only the most violent of felonies and some sexual offenders to submit his or her DNA to the datahank. The new law requires all convicted felons to he included in the databank, as well as individuals convicted of violent misdemeanors. The law also lolls the sialue of limitations in 'criminal cases when DNA evidence has been collected from the crime scene or victim, but has yet to be linked to the perpetrator. Chancey Parker, New York State criminal justice director, believes this is of particular importance because DNA increasingly allows the perpetrators of crimes to be posi-

tively "ascertained many years after the crime was committed, and after the statue of limitations has expired," he said. In recognition of this fact and the reliability of DNA evidence. Congress recently amended the federal rules of Criminal Procedure to toll the statute of limitation in federal criminal prosecutions in which DNA testing implicates an unidentified person in the commission of a felony. The law also requires the retention, security and confidentiality of DNA samples maintained outside the Stale DNA Databank, and requires the Commission on Forensic Science to . develop best practices regarding the collection and preservalion of biological evidence by law enforcement agencies and laboratories. The law also provides for the eslablishment of the Innocence Project Program to fund the use of DNA to prove the innocence of wrongfully convicted persons.
