The devastating events of September 11, 2001 impacted our lives greatly and forever left a void in our hearts. In the midst of this tragedy, we united as a nation and even today, five years later we continue to draw upon each other for support. On Monday, September 11, 2006, the Town of Hempstead will be hosting an ecumenical service of remembrance for all Long Islanders. The event, to be held at Town Park Point Lookout, will include a beachfront ceremony intended to provide Long Islanders with comfort and healing. The gathering will begin at 7:30 a.m. As in years past, the town's 9/11 ceremony will be set alongside the majes-
Estate will be held Saturday at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. and Sunday at 1 and at 3 p.m. at the gazebo. Festival sponsors include Senator Charles Fuschillo, Assemblyman Dave McDonough, LIPA, Astoria Federal Savings and the Roslyn Savings Bank. Roslyn Savings Bank is sponsoring the showmobile. The American Legion is sponsoring a military expo and giving out free wristbands to kids. The expo includes a Coast Guard boat and a humvee from the Marines. Verizon and Newsday will be on hand, along with the fire departments' Smoke House.
tic waters of the Atlantic, a location to which many came in the wake of the terrorist attacks of five years ago. A focal point of the ceremony will be two crystalline towers brilliantly illuminate from the inside, rising from the waters of a reflective pool. Guests will be invited to cast symbolic white carnations in the pool as part of an interactive memorial program. The many Long Islanders who have attended in the past have found this ceremony to be moving. I hope that you can join us on the morning of September 11 as we seek solace with one another in remembering the heroes who perished in the terrorist attacks of five years ago. Together we will share a unique and uplifting experience that offers an opportunity for personal reflection and renewal.

Almost everyone from the "greatest generation" that lived through or served in World War II can remember exactly what he or she was doing when the news came of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It was a life-changing event for everyone, and most people heard about it over the radio. A generation later, when President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, most people saw the news on television. Everyone living then can remember exactly where he or she was when the news<came. For our generation, the numbers "911" that used to mean first and foremost the telephone number you call in an emergency >will always signify the time and'day of the attack on the World Trade Center in Manhattan and the Pentagon near the nation's capital. Many of us got the word over the cell phone. Often it was a long distance call from someone who got the word via satellite television before we did.

JUSt Write lo ARE WE LAW-ABIDING OR AFRAID?...The whole issue of immigration, particularly illegal immigration, is complex. These complications have escalated in recent years with threats of terrorism and the need to secure our borders. The critical mass of immigrants to our shores and their impact on our culture and economy have also created concerns. None of these can be dismissed or ignored. That having been said, it seems as if the tremendous emotional response to the question of immigration centers not simply on those issues but on something more. That something more, we suspect, is fear. Years ago, during an open school night at Baldwin High School, one of the social studies teachers demonstrated how he teaches the topic of prejudice. He sang the lyrics from the, Rodgers and Hammerstein song, "You've Got To Be Taught," from the play "South Pacific." He then discussed with students whether prejudice was, in fact, taught, or whether it was a trait that all people shared. But whether it was taught or intrinsic, what was its root? The conclusion, he said, after years of discussing this topic with young ' people, was that, for the most part, prejudice seems to occur because people are afraid. The history of immigration bears out that conclusion. Fear and prejudice outstrip acceptance when immigrants can no longer be relegated only to a place in society which meets the needs o*f the establishment.
When our place is threatened, we become afraid. As a person living in a diverse community, I am not unaware of some of the real problems that result from having a large number of new immigrants living in a town. However, some of these problems are not unique to immigrants but are simply magnified when the people involved are immigrants. For years, illegal occupancy and the illegal changes of buildings have gone on, seemingly-without too many complaints from residents. Although permits and inspections are required for building modifications, many contractors ignore that legal requirement. Homeowners and landlords counted on the fact that neighbors would not complain to authorities or that authorities would have only limited legal resources to uncover already-completed internal changes to what should have been single-family homes. It was only when more and more single-family homes became occupied by large groups of immigrants," some of them seasonal workers, that residents began to speak up. Suddenly, a practice that was already in place became a question of legality. Suddenly, extensive illegal occupancy by immigrants who did not stay quietly inside their illegally converted houses and apartments became a question of law. Economically, illegal practices which were "accepted" also have become problematic. How many cash businesses have existed for years?
How many homeowners pay cash for home improvements to avoid taxes? How many of us have gone with the lowest bidder on home repairs, knowing that the. workers were probably illegal, per diem, off the books and uninsured? How many of us ever worried that those laborers were not receiving benefits? How many of. us questioned if the contractor was paying into Social Security? Now, as one business after another is staffed not only with immigrant workers but with new immigrant owners, we have begun to worry. Now we talk about law and order. Perhaps that high school social studies teacher was correct. Throughout recorded history, society has functioned on a caste system that depended on a rich class and a poor class. Whether those systems were based on law or simply on an "upstairs-downstairs" mentality, many people today still seem to feel that there are certain people who should know their place and stay there. We are afraid when they don't. We say that our grandparents came here legally, little understanding that most of the laws on the books now regarding immigration didn't exist back then. We say that illegal occupancy didn't exist then, not realizing that most zoning codes and regulations didn't begin in our area until the 1930s. We agree that America was the land of opportunity, but we worry now that there's just so much opportunity to go around. Immigration in general and illegal

immigration in particular will not be an easy problems to discuss nor will the problems be easy ones to solve. Certainly, no progress will be made while the subject is grist for the political mill. Most especially, the problem will not be solved if the home countries of our immigrants continue to remain so poor and dangerous. Immigraton cannot be premised on the belief that some people have a right to freedom and justice, and some do not. Comprehensive immigration reform^must include a way to legalize the temporary workers we need and to create a legal path to citizenship for those, like our ancestors, who want to live in our country. We must understand that most immigrants do want to pursue citizenship but the present system is unwieldly, disorganized and, in too many cases arbitrary. Like it or not, we have become an interconnected global village and we cannot simply cherry-pick all the positives for ourselves while leaving the dregs for everyone else. Illegal immigration is an attempt by those who suffer to try to level an unjust and unlevel playing field. It is no wonder that we are afraid of what that process will mean for those who have enjoyed the benefits of that inequity for so long. It continues to be a tribute to America that our country is still viewed by .immigrants as a beacon of hope. We must find a way to make immigration reform work, for those seeking a better future and for those whose: concerns are based on real fears. *

Baldwin schools welcome staff By Joan Delaney "How do you deal with all the newness?" Baldwin's Superintendent of Schools Robert Britto asked the district's new staff at the orientation luncheon held on August 30. Answering his own question, he noted, "The myth of one person doing it all is just that - a myth." The luncheon, part of the district's three day orientation for new staff, highlighted the importance of developing relationships with peers and with the various levels of professional colleagues whose help and knowledge are necessary for success. This year, the district's new profes-
sional staff will include 24 teachers, three administrators, one supervisor, and two nurses. A half time nurse's position is yet to be filled.The brief resumes used to introduce the newcomers made it clear that the group is a mixture of teachers new to the profession and teachers with a great deal of experience who are simply new to the district. Director of Music and Fine Arts Peter Freeman spoke of the district's new band instructor, who drove 10 hours from Ohio for her 15-minute initial interview. Several teachers have come to Baldwin after a variety of positions outside of teaching. As administrators outlined the resumes of the new staff, it was clear that personal experiences, interests and tal-
ents would also play a big role in the type tion. of teacher that students will see.

Governments move to protect our waters from page 1
New York Ocean and Great Lakes ecosystem Conservation Act The state has responded to this crisis by shifting their ocean policy to a more comprehensive, ecosystem-based approach, rather than focusing on a particular species or problem. The legislation, called the New York Ocean and Great Lakes Ecosystem Conservation Act, requires that a nine member council be formed to ensure interagency cooperation and be able to comprehensively analyze any weaknesses or gaps where more information is needed. The state will also launch two pilot projects, one in the Great South Bay and the other in Lake Ontario. The council is charged with helping to develop and implement strategies to address the challenges facing our waters. They will focus on a broad range of issues, including the ecology of marine habitats as well as examining the importance of the water for recreation, fishing and other industries. "From a marine perspective, this legislation is very important," said Jeffrey Fullmer, director of the South Shore Estuary Reserve. "The idea behind the
legislation is to create a way to connect al the dots. Instead of looking at the ecosystem by a species by species basis, they will be able to show how all living resources depend on each other."
Federal legislation proposed to save our shores A federal program called, ."Save our Shores," is being sponsored by Senator HilaryClinton.lt will provide $1.5 billion over a period of five years to the US. Environmental Protection Agency program to help communities in New York and across the country to attack the coastal water quality problems. These problems include combined sewer overflows, polluted storm water and pollution from "non-point" sources such as fertilizer and pesticides from lawns.. Under the Clean Coast act, funding would be available to states, localities and non-profit organizations through a grant program for projects that could include fixing sewer and storm water systems to reduce pollution; restore wetlands that filter water as it flows from land to streams, estuaries and the ocean; and implement watershed protection plans designed to reduce erosion or pollution from non-point sources. The four-point plan also includes the National Aquative Invasive Species Act,
a bill that addresses the threats posed by harmful, non-native aquatic plants and .animals, common reeds and other invasive plants found in Long Island streams and wetlands. The bill would also require commercial shops to treat ballast water to eliminate invasive species; a program to ban the import of harmful aquatic species in trade; funding to support state program to control invasive species and the creation of "rapid response" teams to remove invasive species that are newly established. The bill would provide $800 million in funding over five years.
Not all is bleak Our waters are cleaner as indicated by the return of wildlife that was once very common in our harbors and inshore waters 60 to 100 years ago, according to the New York Wildlife Conservation Society. Harbor porpoise, dolphins and even a few manatee have been seen in our waters. But the most common mammal spotted along our shores is the seal. The New York Wildlife Conservation Society have records of rookeries of up to 2,000 seals on some "small islands, along Long Island," reads their press release. In Freeport seals have become a more common sight.
In closing New York state is the second largest coastal state in the nation, with more othan 3,200 miles of ocean, tidal and Great Lakes coastline, according to the Governor's office. Approximately 80 percent of New Yorkers live in the state's 26 coastal counties. The state's coastal areas, rivers, lakes and estuaries feature more than 800 public beaches, parks and recreational sites and more than 700 miles of scene byways. H "Our coastline plays a critical role in our daily lives," said Governor Pataki in a press release, "and we must be vigi- B.lant in our efforts to protect and restore these vital resources."

Carolyn McCarthy remembers 9/11 by Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy This week will mark the fifth anniversary of September 11, 2001. I None of us will ever forget where we Iwere that day or how our nation unitex ed in grief in the days and weeks fol- • lowing that great tragedy. In the weeks following 9/11, we all demonstrated the best of America. Thousands volunteered to help with H the rescue and recovery efforts. i* <u Scores more donated money, gave •o blood, and took time to help people affected "by the attacks. Millions I prayed for the families who lost loved JS ones. Thousands enlisted in the mili-
tary to serve our nation in the War on Terror. It'was a remarkable time, people from all walks of life stood together with a renewed sense of purpose and compassion. Millions of Americans took the time and effort to help people they would never meet. It was because of these acts that our nation's wounds began to heal. On this anniversary of September 11, 2001, let's not only remember those we lost, but also remember how we were came together to help get America through perhaps the most difficult days in its histo y. Let's remember the firefighters and police officers who ascended the stairs of the burning World Trade Center to save
others. Let's remember the rescue workers who spent days digging through the ruins of Lower Manhattan in hopes of finding survivors. Let's remember the heroism of the brave men and women who have put their country before themselves in Afghanistan and Iraq. And let's remember all those who gave a little of themselves after 9/11 to help some of their fellow Americans persevere through an unimaginable time. On September 11, 2001, our hearts were, broken but our spirit grew stronger. On September 11, 2006, let us renew our commitment to making America a better place. Thank you,' and may God bless America.
