JUSt Write toy loan SCHMOOZING 101...Some time ago, after graduating from college and working for several years, our older daughter informed us that she was thinking of going to law school. Speaking of her real-life work experience, she said "I've got the schmoozing part down pat; now I have to go back to learn some more information." Sometimes I think that "schmoozing" should be a required course. Over the years, I have seen more and more academic courses of study required of students. Computer competency is now a high school requirement in Baldwin and students must demonstrate that ability. Baldwin's director of technology recently informed; me that there are some States that have made completion of an on-line course a high school requirement. Educators see that skill as one which will be necesssary, if not during college, then certainly thereafter. All the course work in the world, however, will not suffice if people are unable to effectively present themselves and their credentials to others. The job application process today can often be extremely anonymous in its initial stages. It is said that most employers spend less than two minutes reading a written resume. In fact, for many positions, the application must be submitted on-line. That is why it is more important than ever for people to have the ability to "schmooze" quickly and effectively

when they get the opportunity. Now for the definition of "schmoozing." "Schmoozing" is the ability to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection. The person who can do that has a distinct advantage over the person who might technically know more but can't communicate. For some people, schmoozing is often thought to be mindless conversation, but it really isn't. I personally have had numerous occasions when I have really been grateful for the person who can schmooze. I love nurses who can schmooze. My blood pressure, taken by a schmoozing nurse, is always lower than my blood pressure taken by a health professional who can't schmooze. In fact, it has been said that doctors who communicate well with patients are sued less frequently than doctors who don't communicate well. Maybe, in legal circles, the word "schmoozing" isn't used, but whatever you call it, a doctor with a bedside manner, who takes the time for a brief chat, who puts a patient at ease, comes across as caring, and people who appear to be caring don't get sued as much as people who may be more competent but appear less involved. Schmoozers also tend to do better in those kinds of job interviews which involve a lunch. I remember my younger daughter telling me that she and another

A Baldwin library thank you The Young Adult Department of the Baldwin Public Library wishes to acknowledge all local merchants and corporate businesses that generously contributed to this year's "Summer Reading Club, Books: A Treasure." Special thanks to the Baldwin Kiwanis Club for purchasing the T-shirts that were supplied by the Baja Man.

We appreciate the support of all the organizations

college student were both taken out for lunch as part of a summer intern interview process. The young man foolishly thought that the lunch was about eating, and he ordered a pasta dish which he slurped and enjoyed. My daughter, on the other hand, , ordered a simple salad which she poked at while she answered questions that involved such-topics as hobbies and personal interests. Her "schmoozing" gene, which she claims was inherited from me, stood her in good stead. During my years of reporting, I have seen and heard some excellent schmoozers. Richard Kessel, chairman of LIPA, is one of the best schmoozers around. I remember him many years ago before the age of e-mails and fax machines, going from local newspaper to local newspaper with various consumer-related press releases. Every person in the news office where I then worked was impressed with his style, and look at where his schmoozing has gotten him. Numerous political figures are excellent schmoozers. I have never personally seen former President Bill Clinton in action, but his style should be studied by students in any Advanced Placement schmoozing course. It has been said that when he is speaking with a person, it seems as if that person is the only person who exists. There are other political figures whom I liken to the guy that every girl remembers from days of attending "mixer" dances. Those are the guys who are dancing with one girl; but looking over her shoulder to see what else is out there. I could enumerate dozens of politicians who fall into that category, and when I see them, I am always tempt• 2*^ ^*^

ed to say, "Hey, pay attention." The thing about schmoozing is that if it done correctly, it is really not about the speaker, but the listener. Some years ago, former Baldwinite Marge DelVecchio taught courses on manners and social behavior to young people. I remember observing her classes, which were conducted at the Coral House. Mrs. Del Vecchio told the youngsters that manners and courtesy weren't about some old-fashioned rules and regulations. What they were about is knowing how to behave and how to make other people feel comfortable. The same holds true with the art of schmoozing. There are many professions which are acknowledged to be filled with brilliant people who are stereotyped as geeks or nerds because of their inability to schmooze. There are other professions filled with physically talented people who are labeled as dumb jocks because they cannot communicate effectively. The ability to schmooze opens doors. The inability to schmooze often prevents that door from opening in the first place. When job candidates are given face-to-face interviews, scheduled for periods of time as short as 15 minutes, it is vital to be able to converse casually, quickly, and effectively. Required public speaking courses and the kinds of classes offered in the finishing schools of yesteryear have become obsolete. What is not obsolete, however, is the ability to communicate. Schmoozing is a process that communicates not only facts but also the personality; of the individual who is presenting those facts. For anyone wanting to influence opinions, schmoozing is an essential skill.

RELIGIOUS CALENDAR sponsored by Middle's family says thanks To The Leader: We live in Orefield, Pennsylvania (near Allentown), and our son Sean is midshipman, class of 2009, at the Naval Academy. He called home Sunday morning, August 13, to let us know that you and your community rolled out the red carpet treatment for their arrival and visit to Freeport. You cannot imagine how much your village's hospitality meant to us and our son. I wish you could have been on the phone when he called to hear the excitement in his voice as he described all the hospitalities extended to the mids. To put this in perspective,

Sean and many of his shipmates are 3rd class at the Academy, so it was just last year when they had to endure all the hardships and challenges that come with plebe life at the Academy: An event such as the ~ one you held in Freeport makes it all worthwhile for the mids. And as parents, we are so grateful that you recognized them and gave them the VIP treatment they deserve. We will meet up with Sean later this week in Annapolis, so we will get the full report on the visit. May God bless you and the citizens of Freeport! John and Donna Bakey Parents of MIDN Sean Bakey '09 U.S. Naval Academy Editor's note: The above letter was sent to the mayor's office.

Mammography van at Bethel AME Nassau County Legislator Kevan Abrahams (D-Hempstead) announced that the Nassau County Health Care Corporation Mammography Van will be coming to Freeport to provide no out-ofr pocket cost breast cancer screenings, which will include a breast examination by a nurse, a marnmogram, and instructions in breast self-examination.

Five years later: The day the towers fell from page 1 After the tower was down, Bill remembered thinking, "I made it." Then he realized that this thick cloud of dust Tf* and smoke was coming at him, and he knew he had to get out of there or he wouldn't be able to breathe. Four firefighters came running to get u away from the smoke. One of the fireon fighters kicked in the .window of a chicken take-out store and "I followed them in," said Bill."We covered up the broken door but the store was still filling up with the smoke. We tried going upstairs but a big I picture window was already blown out from something hitting it. Finally we went down in the basement and found a room where we could shut the door. We stayed there for 20 minutes." What Bill saw when he went back into the street was hard for him to put into words. "Everything was so quiet. There were no sounds at all. An eerie quiet. The people walking around me were dazed and in a state of shock. A lot of them were wounded and covered from head to toe with this white dust, and some were bleeding. There were fires on both sides of the block, including cars, fire trucks and buses, which started to explode." Bill followed a group of firefighters working their way down the street putting out the fires. He came around the corner and saw through the thick smoke an abandoned FDNY pumper that stood in the middle of the rubble with its lights flashing and its engine arid pump still running. The firefighters jumped on it and worked on the lines and placed the stang in service. 04

&

i

Through the next 16 hours, Bill witnessed things no man should ever have to see in his lifetime. "I saw dead bodies and body parts. I watched bodies in body bags being carried past me," he said. After staying there for 16 hours on 9/11, Bill went back to volunteer again on Wednesday, September 12, for another 11 hours. He took photographs and helped search for survivors, moving the debris along with the other thousands of men and women volunteers. Other firefighters from Freeport were on the scene to do what they could. These included ex-Chief Ray Maguire, who was called in as acting chief at the Command Post; Third Assistant Freeport Fire Chief John Maguire (Ray's brother); Second Assistant Chief Jimmy Butler and ex-Chief Paul Hashagen, who is a member of Rescue 1 of New York. There are more Freeport firefighters that went to volunteer and there are some firefighters who once served Freeport that are now members of the New York City Fire Department. Some of these fine men were first to airive on the scene and are now considered missing. All of these men, mentioned by name or not, are heroes to all Americans. A current issue of People magazine [September 2001] has a photograph of Bill helping carry out one of the wounded on a stretcher. "It was strange, not something to be happy about, getting your photo in a magazine for such a terrible experience," he said. Bill added that the horror and shock of the past few days didn't hit him until the third day. "I was thinking about all the

people [including emergency personnel] who had lost their lives. It was so overwhelming." When The Leader spoke to Bill on Sunday (September 16, 2001), he was running into the city to bring aspirin, Gatorade, socks and other items to the firehouse. He was still looking to see what he could do to help. "People call me a hero," said Bill. "I tell them, I'm no hero, that the real heroes are all the guys who ran to the scene as everyone else was running

away. The true heroes are the guys who went into the two 110-story buildings as they were engulfed in flames to help save the people who were trapped. The true heroes are the ones who made the supreme sacrifice. Please don't forget what they did. They gave everything. God bless them. God bless them, all." We remember all the firefighters and other victims who died on 9/11. The Leader grieves with these families.

The village-sponsored event took place at 8:30 a.m. at the 9/11 Memorial Fountain and Contemplate Garden on the village green at Brooklyn and Ocean Avenues. Mayor Bill Glacken reminded the attendees that five years ago, Sept. llth dawned much like this September 11th, a startlingly magnificent day with bright blue skies and a warm sun that held so much promise, only to ultimately witness the worst attack America has ever endured on its own soil. He asked the group to honor those lost on that tragic day by going forward. "We honor the courage they showed us by having faith in our country and hope for the future," he said. The Rev. Marianne Tomecek of the Christ Lutheran Church on North Grove

9/11

St. gave the convocation and called for prayers for the eight Freeporters and all the other souls lost in that horrible attack. "We preserve their memory by praying for their families, that their lives will be filled with compassion and faith in the Lord," she said. Other services included one sponsored by the Freeport High School Naval Junior ROTC, which featured a wreath laying ceremony and the annual event at the Bay view Avenue traffic circle across from the Bayview Firehouse Hose Company Number 3. Mayor Glacken and the trustees were among the attendees at the Bayview Avenue ceremony, which included a recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance by the neighborhood children. The Freeport Fire Department wishes to thank the local businesses who donated to the event: Dunkin' Donuts, the Rite Stop convenience store, La Via Pizza and Love and Quiches.

Environmental bond on ballot by Laura Schofer A second environmental bond will be put before the voters this November. . This time, however, the Nassau County legislature is asking for $100 million to acquire open space, improve and protect our parks as well as fund water projects that will repair the infrastructure that controls stormwater runoff and pollution of our creeks, bays and beaches. Money will also be set aside for the clean-up of brownfields. The proposal will ask voters to approve a charter amendment setting up an environmental fund to be paid off through a dedicated tax. The legislature unanimously approved the referendum in a 19-0 vote on Tuesday, September 5. The legislation was cosponsor'ed by Legislator Dave Denenberg (D-Merrick) and Legislator Lisanne Altmann (DGreat Neck). Legislator Denenberg, (19th LD) told The Leader that if voters approve the new bond referendum, it will costs residents "approximately $16 a year in taxes annually [for a period of 20 years]," he said. Mr. Denenberg is the chairman of the Environmental Committee in the Nassau County Legislature. "I believe that the voters of this county will step up to the plate once again by supporting this important environmental package," he said. In 2004, an initial $50 million environmental bond was passed by an overwhelming majority of the voters. Seventy-seven percent of voters were in favor. That bond cost taxpayers approximately $7 a year in taxes. The bond preserved 72.3 acres of land and development rights were purchased on 43 acres, mostly on the North Shore, but also in Baldwin. $37.8 million was spent for open space and the remaining funds went for park improvements, clean water and brownfield projects. "Nassau County's first bond was a resounding success story," said the Legislature's presiding Officer Judy Jacobs. "We believe we will once again receive the support of the voters, who know that Nassau's precious open space is quickly disappearing. A year from now, two years from now, it could be too late." This second bond has been in the works for the past year. The initial version presented to committee members included caps on spending in particular areas. "Some of the legislators wanted to see open space acquisition at no more

than 56 to 64 percent, with another 27 percent for water projects," said Mr. Denenberg. "But Peter Schmidt [Republican minority leader] 'didn't want us to go with percentages," he added. Mr. Denenberg added that County Executive Thomas Suozzi removed the percentages and "the Republicans agreed. If getting those 19 votes meant there would be no percentages, then it is the same [kind of] bond as the one we put forth in 2004. If it was left up to Mr. Schmidt we'd have no bond this year," he said. Mr. Denenberg added, "I thought the percentages were a good idea. It's not parochial at all." Although most of the open space projects were located on the North Shore, Mr. Denenberg said he feels "this is not a North Shore verses South Shore issue. All open space isn't on the North Shore. We have open space issues right here along our parkway corridors for example." Mr. Denenberg is also hopeful that sporadic pieces of open space such as the Brooklyn Waterworks adjacent to the Brookside Preserve in Freeport may be acquired through this new bond. "Fixing a pond and improving water quality [Mill Pond] is an open-space issue," said Mr. Denenberg. The 2004 environmental bond provided $4,424,000 toward 17 stormwater projects. "Nassau is ahead on stormwater," he said. Environmentalists are lending their support of the new bond. "With land prices rising dramatically and so little open space left, we must act now to protect and restore natural areas while we still can. We are very grateful to the Nassau County Legislature and the county executive for understanding the importance of protecting our environment and giving voters the opportunity to choose to do something about it," said Lisa Ott, executive director of the North Shore Land Alliance. "This legislation will allow the Nassau voters to take direct action in a November referendum to create an earmarked fund dedicated to environmental programs that will protect Our drinking water and preserve our remaining open spaces," said Neal Lewis, executive director of the Neighborhood Network. Richard Amper, executive director of the Pine Barrens Society said, "This bond referendum gives Nassau voters the bargain of a lifetime by offering them drinking water protection, open space preservation and parks - all for 16 bucks!"
