Arechaga dies in:lt$mtt^&im

by Joan Delaney (We thank the Randazzo and Arechaga family for speaking with us during this difficult time. We met on Friday, October 13, and the following conversation took place just hours before they left for the airport to meet Sgt. Julian Arechaga's wife Felicia, who was arriving with a military escort.) Flags are flying at half mast as Baldwinites pay tribute to one of their own, Sgt. Julian Arechaga, 23, who died in Al Anbar province in Iraq on October 9, when an explosive hit the Humvee in which he was riding. "We believe he was in the passenger seat, the most dangerous, because he wanted to be an example to his men. He was a good soldier; he loved this country and felt that the people in Iraq needed us, needed some kind of hope. I feel like I lost a son and a brother," said Russ Randazzo, the brother-inrlaw of Sgt. Arechaga. . Mr Randazzo, only 33 himself, and

^^ his wife Sheyla, Sgt. Arechaga's sister, who were married in 1998, helped raise the young Julian, whose parents were divorced. "He was a funny kid. He went to Plaza School and the middle school. Sheyla and I went to Open School Night there and people looked at us. But we wanted him to know that someone cared. "He told us no one cared, but we told him that we cared. He lived with us. I was waiting for him to come home. He used to kid me because I was the only guy in the house. His mother was here and my wife and the kids. I was the only guy and he used to say to me, 'Why don't you just put on a dress?' He was like my brother, my son." Eventually, Julian attended Oceanside High School, where he was on the honor roll. He loved wrestling and the martial arts and anything to do with the military. "He came home and told us he had heard recruiters at school and that he wanted to become a Marine. He went weekends in Hempstead in preparation for boot camp. Boot camp was hard but Julian and another guy graduated at the top of the platoon.

Working toward cleaner bays The following is part two of an article that appeared in last week's edition of The Leader.

by Laura Schofer In 2001, The South Shore Estuary Reserve Comprehensive. Management Plan (CMP) was created as a blueprint for stewardship of the bays and wetlands. The plan provides a blueprint for the long-term health of the reserve's bays and tributaries, its tidal wetlands and wildlife and its tourism and economy. The plan calls for. more than 75 actions to be implemented at an estimated cost of $98 million, according to the South Shore Estuary Reserve Council.

Non-point and point source pollution improvements in our area According to the interim report, the most pressing concern is reducing pollution from stormwater runoff, called nonpoint source pollution, as well as from wastewater treatment plants called source pollution. Stormwater runoff becomes polluted from oils, sand, and salt on roads; lawns that have been fertilized or treated with pesticides; pet waste and other pollutants picked up by rain or snowmelt. These wash into creeks and bays over land and through storm drains. Here in Nassau County, the government is now implementing new drainage requirements associated with construction of subdivisions and buildings on county roads. The county has also been involved in the Geesepeace Program, oiling eggs to prevent hatching, thus reducing animal waste. Working with the Freeport village government, Operation SPLASH (Stop

Poluting, Littering and Save Harbors) secured funds to install additional storm drain inserts in Freeport. The estuary council has also recently formed a committee to study how to improve water quality in Reynolds Channel and the western Hempstead Bays where the Bay Park Sewage Treatment plant dumps effluent into the water. Preserving aquatic life and open space The CMP has studied shellfish populations and ways to protect and restore coastal habitats. The Town of Hempstead has been operating a hard clam seed growout program in town waters and Nassau County has implemented several projects, including one at Mill Pond in Bellmore, to support warm water fisheries. In Freeport, the village is implementing a project to create a tidal wetland and intertidal marsh ecosystem at Sea Breeze Park at the end of the Nautical Mile. Although most open space acquisition took place on the North Shore, a parcel of land in Baldwin was saved under the environmental bond act passed in 2004. An additional bond act is scheduled to be on the ballot Tuesday, November 7, to help preserve more open space. Tourism and business go hand in hand The CMP calls for a plan to increase public enjoyment and access to the estuary as well as sustain a water-based economy. According to the interim report, the Town of Hempstead has been very involved in providing recreational opportunities and expansion of public access. It established 2,000 feet of shoreline prop-


Awards presented Back on board the Nautical Princess, H Jeffrey Fullmer presented awards to two stewards of the South 'Shore Estuary, I SPLASH and Wilfred Klisner. Each, in Mr. Fullmer's words, deserved the recognition because of "the initiative they have shown to clean-up and restore our waters." SPLASH received the I award for its floatable debris trap. "It demonstrates how a group can use innovative, inexpensive ways to reduce and protect the estuary," said Mr. Fullmer. Mr. Klisner was responsible for bringing up an issue to the council not identified in the CMP, how to clean up and restore abandoned boats. "These kinds of actions inspire us, and it teaches us that people can make it happen," said Mr. Fullmer. "The South Shore Estuary can be saved."

The town also encouraged the continuation of traditional .water-dependent uses, including building 10 new marine navigational aids. According to the interim report, the town maintains .500 navigational aids such as buoys, pole markers and regulatory signs and created a GIS data layer of private navigational aides and signs for public and private use. The interim report again points to the town's efforts to help water-based businesses. It is responsible for removing approximately 4,000 cubic yards of material per year to promote safe navigation.

Backbone of LI The Nassau County Council of Chambers of Commerce honored several local members at its legislative breakfast last Friday. Locally, they were Robert F. Schade, CPA of Bellmore, Jane and Chuck Dugan, owners of JC Cove and Villa Mia Pizzeria on Freeport's Nautical Mile, Julie Marchesella, owner of Queen of Hearts on Merrick Avenue in Merrick, Juanita Duran, owner of Majestic Salon on Merrick Road in Seaford, and Joe lavarone of lavarone Brothers of Wantagh. As Timothy Knight, Newsday's publisher, told the assemblage, they are "the backbone^of LI," providing jobs and contributing to the economy through their taxes. As any PTA president can tell you, they also contribute to local causes •and work for beautification of our towns. Assemblyman David McDonough and Town Councilman Gary Hudes, former presidents of the council, were praised by the current president, Richard Bivone, for building "a premier group," that has lobbied for downtown improvements and other causes. LIPA Chair Richard Kessel won his praise for "investing in the infrastructure" so that Long Island has not yet suffered a long-term outage like Queens did. The group also honored the Long Island senatorial delegation, and Senator Dean Skelbs responded saying their priorities were lowering taxes, providing affordable housing and lowering energy costs. The new energy research center at Stony Brook affords hope for the future.

NO SAFE HAVEN...Back in the early 1980, then-Superintendent of Schools Gene Lanzaro used to say that for many children, school was the only safe haven. Now, for many students, even that is no longer true. His comments reflected a society which was out of control. The drug culture and poverty disproportionately impacted children and frequently school was the only place where a child could get a hot meal, find an adult who would listen, and not worry about being physically harmed. That has changed and we have come to see so sadly that there are no safe havens. "Why all the violence in schools?" we ask, as though we are unaware of the pervasive violence that abounds in society. In the aftermath of the Columbine killings in 1999, how many young people and adults who were interviewed commented upon the bullying they received when they were in school. The interactive program "Rachel's Challenge," a positive tribute and outgrowth of the life

and compassion of Rachel Scott, the first person killed at Columbine, was recently conducted at Baldwin Middle School. At Baldwin High School, school tone is a major focus with a greater emphasis on caring, friendliness and simply "being nice" being asked of both students and teachers. Schools are trying. Despite school efforts, however, we live in a society where there is a greater disregard for individuals and, whether we want to admit it or not, greater violence in both small and large ways. We act surprised when there are consequences. We feign disbelief when violence erupts so dramatically despite all the evidence around us that such behavior has been fermenting, especially among our young. How many parents are so pleased when their child is a star among the "in crowd." Unfortunately, what that often means, and what too many parents are willing to accept and even encourage, is that there is then also a group of young people who are ridiculed, isolated, and

TRUE TO THEIR SCHOOL: Baldwin alums, from left, Carl Kuester, Joe Megale, Helen Wohn Flanders and Bill Malone had a good time at the Baldwin Foundation for Education beach party at Jones Beach.

perhaps even physically assaulted by that "in crowd." How many children have been allowed a visual diet of violent movies and television shows with that violent stimulation escalating in recent years through increasingly violent music and Internet sites. We like to pretend that somehow all that our children are seeing and experiencing doesn't affect them. Actors and media moguls would argue that it is not this visual stimulation which harms young people, although many of these same people charge huge sums of money for advertising which follows the same stylistic techniques and are intended to impact opinion and influence actions. We mock the very concept of family values, allowing those ideas to be corrupted by both political parties for their own benefit. And, how often do we laugh at the very concepts themselves as though there is something wrong with attributes such as fidelity, kindness, compassion, and even religious belief. Somehow we have allowed ourselves to regress to the belief that "might makes right," and our kids have observed and imitated that behavior with a variety of weapons, too easily available. Now we wonder what we can do. The answers that many turn to are inadequate. How many relocate to gated communities seeking to protect themselves in architectural bubbles? How many think that there is some school, somewhere, which will provide a Utopian existence for their child? When will we realize that there are some protections that we must all enjoy or else no one can enjoy them? When will we understand that either we are all safe ' or none of us is safe? How frequently do we hear, "I didn't

think it could happen in my community?" And why not? Despite the best contingency emergency plans, violence will occur if the seeds of violence are allowed to thrive. And often those seeds are cultivated in an environment that is meanspirited and uncaring. How can the average citizen take a stand? Perhaps we cannot accomplish huge changes on our own, but we can act. We must stop going to movies and renting videos which portray and glamorize violence. I am always amazed at the outcries we hear about the sexual abuse of children while actors, even major actors, line up to play roles or work with directors who do more than push the envelope toward perversion and cruelty under the guise of creativity. We must pay attention to the products being sold in local stores. Why would distributors bother to sell a new drink called "Cocaine" unless they believed there was a market for it? Let's watch our own anger and the way we treat each other. Our children are our biggest imitators. Can it be a surprise that our children's rage is so close to the surface when we think of the rage they see every day from adults - at home, in the car, and even in what should be recreational pursuits? We must be serious about creating safe havens not only for our children but for society as a whole. National summits on school violence cannot produce miracles. We must all help to create a society where every person is treated with respect. Otherwise, violence will beget more violence even if that violence begins with only those small acts of meanness which chip away and destroy the human spirit.

A fallen hero remembered from page 1

"When he was finished there, he flew home to visit us. He told us, 'Don't worry, I'll be back.' We talked to him about becoming a cop. He applied to some colleges and was talking about getting some test books to study for the exams for being a cop," Mr. Randazzo said. "When he was in training in California, he called home knowing his mother was sick with cancer. He told us he had met someone and loved her. He told us about Felicia and his mother got to talk to her and to tell her to take care of Julian. His mother died in June. He was home for the funeral and a week later he was married in North Carolina. She's a Marine, too, a mechanic. "She was ready to come back here with him. We talked about his becoming a cop in Suffolk County and he was back here in July. We saw the fireworks and took them to New York City and had a great time. "When he called us and told us he had signed up again, we asked why? He told us that his friends were being called back, his family, and he had to be with them. We went down there in August

[Camp Le Jeune] and visited with them for two days and I'm glad we did." "We were so proud of him and I told him so. He had an apartment, a wife, he was a great Marine. He had a whole life. Here he was, an Hispanic kid from a divorced home, and look at what he made of himself." "They made him a sergeant and he left on September 7. I believe two other guys were killed with him, his friends." "We're going to the airport to pick up his wife. His body arrived today at Dover Air Force Base. The funeral will probably be late next week. It'll be a military funeral and he'll be buried up here; he wanted to be near his mother." Sgt. Arechaga's wife was contacted by her husband's colonel in Iraq. Mr. Randazzo lowered his voice and bowed his head. "He said Julian was one of his best Marines and that he will be receiving a Purple Heart." Sgt. Arechaga served in the infantry and belonged to the 1st Battalion, Sixth Marine Charlie Company, which is based at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Services will be arranged by Hungerford and Clark in Freeport.

Baldwin board hears high school status report By Joan Delaney


oC *—I lH





"We're in a very good spot," noted Baldwin Senior High School Principal Susan Knors in her presentation on school tone and academic success to the Baldwin Board of Education on Wednesday evening, October 11. Asking the questions, "Where are we?" and "Where are we headed?" Ms. Knors outlined the key initiatives which the high school community is following to create a safe and secure school environment and to support students both personally and academically. Some of the steps to enhance physical security as well as a sense of security include: additional security cameras, construction changes to the bathroom entrances, additional security and duty posts, greater ID use and enforcement, and an enhanced faculty presence between classes ("We want to see 160 teachers at their doors greeting and welcoming students and making sure they are moving on between classes"). Additionally, administrators .are all taking rotations in the halls, creating what Ms. Knors calls "a calming influence." She particularly emphasized increased communication with parents with expectations regarding student behavior and procedures clearly spelled out. Support services for students have also been enhanced. The mentoring program, which started with five students, has been expanded to include 50 students. The teen to teen program has been expanded, with over 200 juniors and seniors volunteering to act as mentors for freshmen. "It's not a one-shot deal," Ms. Knors explained, as she described the ability of students to go to their peers for help as well as regular weekly meetings and monthly activities. Academic and counseling support has also been expanded. "Not every student finds it easy to do well," she explained. A cohort program has been developed with a base team of counselors and social workers, along with teachers, working with 40 hand-picked students who received grades of between 55 and 64 on major exams and who were identified as students who would benefit from this increased assistance. These young people have had their courses and schedules scrutinized with appropriate support services, modified schedules and possible work experiences added to maximize the potential for success. Other academic enhancements include a math academy for students struggling with math, a program called A plus, which focuses on students who have failed a math Regents examination,

and an integrated science course intended to attract students to pursue a third year of science. In identifying "Where we are," Ms. Knors referred to the high school community's work with consultants as they develop a three-year strategic plan. Also taking place are supportive visits by district administrators. Ms. Knors stressed that among her primary interests is the desire to increase the sense of "welcome" and she has spoken in all English classes and instructed teachers to greet and welcome students to each class each day. "It may sound corny but I want teachers and students to personalize the school experience. I want students to feel welcomed and for them to feel that the teachers know them." Students are being encouraged to "do a minimum of one 'nice' thing each day." Among the initiatives contained in the principles explained by Dr. Robert Britto, the superintendent of schools, in all of his presentations both to the community and staff, is the need for "measurable data points." In their work with consultants and in various staff development projects, teachers are developing measurable criteria to measure success, both in academics and in school tone. "For example, we are asking, 'How many students are engaged in extra curricular activities? Has it increased? How many students are ineligible for extra-curricular activities? Has it decreased?'" The presentation on school tone and academic success is another example of how district staff is identifying those aspects of the teaching/learning process which are working and those which are not. What has been added, however, is a greater awareness of setting clear and high expectations with a mechanism for identifying criteria for success which will be measurable. In other business, Michael Sheehan, the director of facilities, operations and safety, noted that all but a few punch list items have been completed for Phase II of the bond work. Plans for the next phase have been sent to the State Education Department for approval, after which the district can send out bids. The board also approved a contract for $31,500 for a demographic study. It was explained at prior meetings that this study is necessary to help the district project future enrollments and facilities needs. The superintendent read a prepared statement on safety which was provided to local newspapers beforehand and which appeared in the October 12 issue of The Leader. Responding to a parent's question regarding announcements

Freeport community concert The Vienna Piano Trio, with Stefan Mendl, piano, Wolfgang Redik, violin, and Matthias Gredler, cello, will perform works by Beethoven, Schoenberg and Schubert in a concert presented by the Freeport Community Concert Association on Saturday, October 28, 8 p.m. at Freeport High School, 50 South Brookside Avenue, Freeport Individual tickets at the door are $20. Five concert subscriptions are $60 (no charge cards). Call Marc Josloff at 223-7659 for group rates.

The Vienna Piano Trio has been hailed as one of the "world's leading ensembles' of piano, violin and cello" (The Washington Post) and achieved a "meteoric rise to fame" (The Strad). The ensemble has performed at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. Isaac Stern chose them for his Public Chamber Music Workshop at Carnegie Hall, The Freeport Community Concert Association is enjoying its 59th year of quality classical programming to the south and mid-Nassau area.

involving the presence of released sexual offenders in the community as a result of Megan's Law, board President Mary Jo O'Hagan noted that the district receives information on those released offenders living in Baldwin. She recognized, however, that while the district could be impacted by those living in contiguous communities, "We have no way of creating a boundary or perimeter." The parental concern was prompted by information which indicated that there was one new released offender in Baldwin but three additional persons in Freeport. Other comments focused on praise for district staff, especially security personnel, for all of the organization which allowed the evening football game on September 29 to be such a success. Responding to the question of a parent, Dr. Britto also explained the curriculum enhancements and staff development

that are taking place to improve the understanding of math, both for teachers and students. He explained that the downward slide of scores from elementary to middle school is a national trend, and is, in part, thought to be caused by the fact that most elementary level teachers are not math majors but concentrate on literacy instruction. "We are not teaching a few bag of tricks but how teachers can better understand math," he said. A math consultant has been hired to work both with students and with teachers to help them develop better lessons. The high school's homecoming parade, football game and band day will take place on October 21. The school board's first Community Input Meeting at which there is no set agenda will occur on Wednesday, October 25, at 8 p.m. at the high school. All are welcome.

A place where hearts and minds are challenged o oo

by Laura Schofer

Jomar is a slightly-built young man with a soft voice and a gentle manner. , "I'm gentleman of the week," he stat(N ed. This is an honor, bestowed on one ON" student each week by the teachers at the De La Salle School in Freeport, a I small Catholic middle school that pro2 o vides an education for at-risk, economO ically disadvantaged boys. Jomar, along with two other eighthgrade boys, took a group of visitors on a tour of their school last week. "I've been here since fifth grade. It's a good school," he said. 1 The De La Salle School in Freeport was .founded in 2002 and began with <u 12 students in the fifth grade. The H school is operated by the De La Salle Christian Brothers. Presently there are 56 young men, in grades five through eight, that come mostly from Freeport and eight other school districts including Hempstead, Roosevelt, Elmont, Uniondale, Wyandanch, Westbury, Baldwin, Valley Stream, Merrick and Brentwood. The student/faculty ratio is about seven to one and the population is 98 percent minority. Almost all the students are immigrants or first-generation citizens of the United States. Take Jomar, for example. His family is from Peru and the Dominican Republic. He lives in Freeport with his parents and his younger brother. He likes to play chess, hopes the school will soon have a basketball team and wants to grow up to be either a professional baseball player or a police officer. The mission of the school is to provide boys like Jomar a Catholic school education at a crucial time in their lives. According to the school's literature, their emphasis is on basic academic and social skills as well as offering an opportunity for parents or guardians to be active partners in their child's education. They infuse learning with "prudence, justice, fortitude, temperance, faith, hope and charity," reads the literature. This De La Salle school is one of 16 San Miguel Schools run by the Christian Brothers. The first Miguel school model was founded in 1993 in Providence, Rhode Island, to assist boys in an economically depressed, ethnically diverse community. The school depends almost entirely upon individual philanthropy, corporate contributions and foundation grants to cover the cost of educating each student. Although families show their commitment to their child's education with a $750 contribution for the school each year, the school is not tuition-driven. Back at the Freeport De La Salle School, Jomar points to the bright hallways decorated by students' work. "These are bio-poems. We list our goals," he said. Some of those goals include "passing all my classes and doing good work in high school. I hope one day to go on to college." In the science classroom, which is also the eighth-grade homeroom, Mr. Elvie talked about the integrated science program that will prepare the boys to take the New York State eighth grade science exam. But Jomar pointed to the back of the room. "And we have two turtles, fish, a guinea pig and a ferret," he beamed. Then Jomar pointed to the large posters above the door.

"These [posters] are about the biotic and abiotic environments. Biotic refers to living and abiotic to non-living," he said. During the assembly, which takes place each morning, students are honored for their achievements, including top grades and personal honors. Each day of the week has a theme. Monday the children discuss the "Saint of the Week"; Tuesday is "Writer of the Week, a time when a student writer is honored; Wednesday is "word .of the week," used to increase the student's vocabulary; Thursday is "Artist of the Week," and again a student artist is honored; and Friday refers to good deeds and "Gentleman of the Week," when a student is honored for their positive actions. One banner reads "Gentlemen, think before speaking." On the Thursday when guests attended the school, James Barnes was De La Salle's "artist of the week." "He has a twin and they are both very good artists," Jomar explained. "I admire their talents." Christian Brother Thomas Casey, executive director of the school, then

posed a question for the boys using the word of the week. "For most of our guests, do you think this assembly is a novelty?" Many hands shot up in the air and finally Brother Thomas chose one student who said,"Yes, this assembly is a

novelty to our guests." "And what does novelty mean," asked Brother Thomas. "Unusual, out of the ordinary," he replied. Indeed. The De La Salle School is anything but ordinary.

Baldwinite Torres running for state Assembly By Joan Delaney


Baldwinite Dan Torres is running as a Democrat for a seat on the New York State Assembly and hopes to represent CN the people of the 14th District who are oC presently represented by Republican Robert Barra. Focusing on nine specific issues which he believes dramatically affect I o Long Island, he is centering his campaign on more than the "Reform Albany" stance he took two years ago, although reforming Albany is still crucial in his mind. Property taxes and the funding of education, he says, are essential problems to be addressed. The process of "pushing o down costs" to lower levels of government, he stresses, must be curtailed. Regarding education, he pointed out that only six percent of the money which the federal government makes available to states is slated for public education, including higher education, despite increasing unfunded federal mandates. On the state level, there is a huge discrepancy in the amount of state aid allotted to the state's various counties. "We must determine a certain level of cost for educating our children statewide, and then adjust aid based on the cost of living of specific areas." Since school taxes represent 68 percent of a homeowner's property taxes, he thinks that this structural change will go a long way toward making homes more affordable. Most specifically, he does not agree that lottery monies, which were initially marketed to the public as funds earmarked for education, should instead be funneled through the general fund OH



where, he says, "more than half is stolen how they are used." He says they seem away." He also insists that many corpointended "for better headlines." rate loopholes should be eliminated, On other specific issues, Mr. Torres saying that businesses would not leave says that he "supports the spirit of the New York State.

Regarding the specifics of issues such as civil rights, Mr. Torres says that he supports, same-sex marriage and sees it as "another civil rights issue." He believes "It's eventually going to happen" and says that "younger generations accept it." He cites New York State as usually being "one of the leaders in civil rights." Mr. Torres is also opposed to the death penalty saying that it is not an effective deterrent. He explained that when he was younger, he was for it, but cites the execution of Timothy McVeigh as a moment when he position changed. "We let him off easy; we gave him exactly what he wanted." Mr. Torres believes that "mature societies have abandoned the death penalty." Speaking more generally about the reform needed in Albany, Mr. Torres said that "there is too much power centered in three people," the governor, the speaker of the Assembly and the majority leader of the Senate. He believes that such disproportionate power is the core of Albany's problem and believes that new legislators will be more willing to effect change. Citing local issues, he says that he believes that the revitalization of Baldwin's downtown has "taken too long," and views the 10-year delay as a microcosm of the failure on the part of the state to address the issue of revitalizing business. Regarding highway traffic and safety, he says that "we must improve enforcement and foster an environment where aggressive drivers are dealt with appropriately." He notes that "' ••i

Is long-term care insurance for you? ing or eating), or when they need substantial assistance due to a cognitive impairment. New benefits have come on the scene, such as additional cash allowances on top of basic coverage which pay for extras, like home modifications and home safety checks. Benefits like this make it easier for people to receive assistance at home.

by Susan Denenberg Despite the recent economic downturn, more and more people of all ages are buying long-term care insurance policies. You, too, may be wondering if long-term care insurance is the smartest decision for you and your family. In this article, a long-term care industry specialist explains the key factors in making the long-term care insurance decision. Despite the economic downturn in the U.S. over the past few years, public interest in long-term care insurance is quietly and steadily growing. In fact, more than four million people held individual long-term care insurance policies at the end of December 2003. The recent interest in long-term care insurance is likely due to three factors: the evolution of these insurance products, limited alternatives for financing care and growing consumer awareness of the benefits of long-term care insurance.

Limited alternatives Almost every day we read that the public safety net is slowly disappearing and the Social Security system may be in jeopardy 20 years from now. ^Even today, publicly-available options for managing long-term care expenses are severely limited. For example, Medicare, typically covers only certain types of care for a limited period of time, leaving, many long-term care costs uncovered. Medicaid also is an imperfect solution because it requires people to .spend down their assets to state required levels to qualify. In addition, Medicaid primarily pays for care received in a nursing facility, not at home. Perhaps this explains why even the U.S. Government recently decided to offer its employees the option to buy long-term care insurance through a special Federal Long-Term Care Insurance Program.

Product evolution Long-term care (LTC) insurance policies have evolved over time to be far more flexible than they were in the early days, when they were known as nursing home policies. Today, most policies allow the insured to receive care in the setting of their choice, whether this is at home, in an assisted living facility, adult day care center or nursing home. Industry standards have developed as well. Most policies offer, benefits when a person can no longer perform two out of six "activities of daily .living" ?(s1fch!°aT batnlng, dressing, toilet-

Consumer awareness • In part, LTC insurance sales have been driven by a growing consumer awareness of the benefits of long-term care insurance coverage. With more than 25 million adult caregivers in the U.S. today, many;people are experiencing long-term care within their own

families. Some have witnessed the positive effects of long-term care insurance, which may have allowed their loved ones to remain in their own homes by paying for in-home care. But many families without long-term care insurance coverage in place have seen the opposite effect - that is, limited choices and the impact of the high costs of long-term care .on their family's financial foundation and security. '

What advisors recommend For the majority of the population who cannot afford to self-insure this risk, .some financial planners are beginning to recommend LTC insurance as a core element of a family's financial plan. The advantages of planning ahead and purchasing the insurance at younger ages (under age 55) include: • The younger you buy, the lower the premiums. • Younger buyers are more likely to be in a healthy condition to qualify for coverage. • If long-term care is needed at an earlier age, the family's finances will be protected as the policy will help to cover the costs of care. • The coverage can pay for caregivers to come into the home, where most people prefer to receive care. This may explain why the average age of a long-term care insurance buyer has dropped from 72 years old in 1990 to almost 58 years old today. Is it worth it? Few people regret purchasing car insurance or home insurance policies when an accident takes place. The cov-


erage earned is far greater than the annual premiums paid, especially when you consider the alternative: paying for a new car pr a new home out-of-pocket. The same is true of long-term care insurance. The benefits paid out under a long-term care insurance policy for one year alone often can exceed the cumulative premiums a client pays into a policy over many years, For example, if a 55-year-old malii purchases a policy that costs $2,000 per year and pays premiums for 20 years until he needs long-term care at age 75, he will pay a total of $40,000 in premiums over those 20 years. Compare this to the cost of care at a skilled nursing facility, which can reach $200,000 per year in some areas and an assisted care facility that is today approximately $6,000 per month. In addition, new policy options available on the market today allow partners and family members to share the benefits of a single policy. This gives policies even greater value by making it more likely that the benefits will be used by one family member or another at some point in time. Tips for a positive buying experience • Engage in a family discussion and plan ahead. If you are helping your parents, make sure you understand their future wants and desires. If you are a couple planning for your own long-term care needs, think through your own priorities and those of your children. Long(continued on page 19)

the state should address certain structural issues such as revising speed limits. Although Mr. Torres supports Eliot Spitzer for governor, applauding his record as a reformer, he is not counting simply on the possible trickle-down benefit of across-the-board votes for Democrats. "I am a more mature candidate and I am running because people in this dis-

trict asked me to run. I believe I can help our area take a step in the right direction. I am obligated to do what I can." He adds, "I am running an effective campaign on a small budget. My profession has trained me to have a lean and efficient approach to business. I will bring the same approach to government as I have brought to my personal life and my business life." Mr. Torres works as a senior data-

base architect in Port Washington. He has a Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering from Syracuse University and a Master's degree in information systems engineering from Polytechnic University. He lives with his wife Marcia and his daughter Nicolette in Baldwin. Mr. Torres is also a pilot and has flown search-and-rescue patrols and homeland security patrols as a mission pilot for the Coast Guard

Auxiliary. He also volunteers for an organization called Angel Flight which flies financially needy patients who require specialized medical care at hospitals far away from their homes. (The Leader is committed to presenting all candidates. However, despite several attempts to schedule an interview with Assemblyman Barra, his office has not returned our phone calls.)

U.S. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy announced the Department of Justice has awarded four local police departments a total of $59,196 through its Bulletproof Vest Partnership grant program. The Nassau County Police Department will receive $24,900.48 to purchase 250 bulletproof vests; the Freeport Police Department was awarded $4,200 for 14 vests; the Village of Hempstead will purchase 30 vests for its police officers with its $15,090 grant; and the Rockville Centre Police Department will receive $15,005.68 to buy 41 protective vests.

"These four grants will help police officers throughout the county perform their jobs safely and more efficiently."
