to By Joan Delaney "We went to Washington, D.C. in the spring, and today Washington, D.C. has come to Baldwin." With those words, Sandy Freiberg, the Baldwin School I District's director of curriculum, technology and instructional support services, welcomed U.S. Congresswoman Carolyn I McCarthy to the district's first I School to Career Advisory \ Committee meeting of the year. j Mrs. McCarthy was present to honor the district for its commitment to mentoring which was highlighted when mentor Charmaine Robbins of State Farm Insurance and Baldwin senior Chris Garcia were honored as winners of the Spotlight Award given by the National Mentoring I Partnership at ceremonies in i Washington, D.C. last year.

In comments to the dozens of mentors and teachers present, the congresswoman, who has served for five terms and sits on the Education and Workforce Committee, noted, "I wish I had a mentor when I first came to Congress." She then described her visits abroad, particularly to China, where, she said, "Their education is proceeding full steam ahead with every student learning English." She deplored almost $15 million in budget cuts in U.S. funding for education last year but praised American students. "Our students may be shy a few points, but they are the best; they are the most innovative." She described her joy at being able to speak on the floor of the House of Representatives about the community she represents. With Superintendent of Schools

Robert Britto by her side, read aloud some of the comments she made on September 19, praising Baldwin's educational com-H mitment, particularly its innovative mentoring program. 1 In turn, Dr. Britto noted that the j school to career partnership! serves "not only as an invaluable ] link between school and work, | but on a more personal level, the mentors serve as role models to Baldwin's students." In commenting to The Leader on her experiences, State Farm Insurance mentor Robbins described the process as "one of the greatest challenges of my life." She spoke with pride of helping Mr. Garcia form his goals. "When he started, he didn't even think of college as part of his future. I showed him what he was capable of." Presently Mr. (continued on page 10)|

Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) has announced that he secured over $1 million in state funding for a renovation project at the Freeport train station. The funds will be used to completely overhaul the waiting room on the station platform. Senator Fuschillo was joined by Assemblyman David McDonough (19th Assembly District) and Freeport Mayor Bill Giacken. "The Freeport train station is an integral part of the village, serving hundreds of residents on a daily basis. This restoration project will make the train station safer, enhance its overall appearance, and improve the quality of life for the Freeport community," said Senator Fuschillo. "On behalf of myself and the Board of Trustees, I want to thank Senator Fuschillo for his efforts in obtaining funding for these improvements," stated

Mayor Giacken. "The complete renovation of the Freeport LIRR station is a key objective of the Giacken Administration and a principal goal of our downtown revitalization efforts. These improvements will have a positive effect on the economic growth of the village and on our residents and commuters; who will benefit from these improvements in safety and comfort while using the Freeport station." The improvements to the station include: • Improved heating system • New security cameras in waiting room and elevator entrance at street level • Better lighting • Brand new wall and floor tiling • Larger window • New doors • Renovations to the platform elevator area According to the MTA, construction on the project is expected to begin in October.


Freeport's DAR honors the Constitution

The proclamation seen in the .picture at right has been on display in the Freeport Memorial Library where the Ruth Floyd Woodhull Chapter, NSDAR, meets regularly on the first Saturday of the month. Their next meeting on October 7 will feature a discussion on Senior Citizens Affairs, led by -Sue Salko, Family and Children's Associations. Refreshments are served at noon and the meeting begins at 1 p.m. The public is invited. For more information, please call 868-0434. Sally Boggan is regent of the Ruth Floyd Woodhull Chapter. Dorothy Lauber and Mary Kahner of Seaford and Elizabeth Hans, Jeannatte Scaaf and Nancy Vermon, who reside in Wantagh, are also members of the chapter.

Constitution Week was celebrated September 17-23, the Constitution of the United States having been signed on September 17, 1787. On August 2, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed Public Law 915 to authorize the celebration of the signing of the constitution. Our founding fathers wisely set up a government with three branches - executive, legislative, and judical --therefore creating a careful "separation of powers." The DAR works to encourage Americans to read and study the Constitution and reflect on their heritage of the freedoms guarenteed by this domument. The constitution has stood the test of time, having been revised very few times in the centuries that followed.

Memorial Walk Al Feld was a people person, the kind of guy .'everybody liked. The tall, handsome former insurance executive took up photography of people and nature with equal gusto. He loved showing out-of-tqwners the Levy Park and Preserve atop the fofrherMerrick landfill, and he was an enthusiastic founding member of the Overlook Preserve and Sanctuary Committee. There was a big crowd atop the park Thursday when Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray unveiled a sign dedicating the Norman J. Levy Preserve Memorial Walk and installing the first plaque in Al's memory, appropriately placed on the rail of the north pond where he would lean and gaze out at the view. Unlike the blizzard conditions under which his funeral was held yearly in the year, Thursday was a gloripys^day. Thing's"jtisf workedbutfhafVa'y. ' ' * Tennis-playing buddies and other friends in Florida had held a memorial service with over 200 in attendance, each sharing a memory in, a program that lasted over two hours. That was a special memory for his'widow, Lila, daughter Carol Feld Brown (and son-in-law Joe Brown and their children Kevin and Lauren in absentia) as well as for his son Scott Feld, daughter-in-law Jill Suitor and their children liana and Eliot. • Now in New York last Thursday, family, Merrick neighbors, friends from his wife's folk-dancing group and others got to see for themselves what his love of nature had helped create. As Lila Feld explained,"Al loved the park and would always bring his neighbors, friends and out-of-town visitors to the preserve. He was proud of that park. It was one of his favorite spots." OPAS founder Jay Pitti recalled how Al made many suggestions, such as providing visitors with a signed certificate of recognition for having climbed the "Merrick mountain." Joy Levy, widow of the late state Senator Norman Levy, a champion for the environment who is the park's namesake, was thrilled about the creation of the memorial way and thankful for all the OPAS members who had shared their vision of a preserve. The preserve was dedicated in October 2000 and is under the stewardship of town Sanitation Commissioner Dick Ronan, another far-seeing environmentalist. "Since its opening, Levy Preserve has been a favorite location for many of our residents," said Councilwoman Angie Cullin. "On many days you can see families walking together on the trails, enjoying the fishing pier or kayaking in the Meadow Brook." Al Feld treasured the memory of kayaking with grandson Eliot and showing Kevin and Lauren the beauty of the park at different times of the year. Joe and liana loved to run the park's trails. Lilyan Cantrowitz, with assistance from Audrey and David Ansel and other longtime members of their folkdancing group, was instrumental in placing the inaugural plaque in the preserve to honor Al Feld. He would have been thrilled. This may inspire others to purchase a memorial plaque for a loved one at the Levy Preserve Memorial Walk. Contact Deputy Commissioner Mike McConnell at 804-2000 for more information. Funds raised will be used to maintain the walk and make other park improvements.

Senator Fuschillo's Golden Gathering October 19 at the Rec Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) invites local senior citizens to attend his annual Golden Gathering, which will take place on Thursday, October 19, at the Freeport Recreation Center, 130 East Merrick Road in Freeport. This free event will last from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The 2006 Golden Gathering will have over 80 exhibitors on hand to answer any questions that senior citizens may have on a variety of issues, such as health and nutrition, consumer protection, public safety, and insurance. As in previous years, visitors will also be able to receive free health services, such as flu shots (subject to availability), blood pressure screenings, chiropractic screenings, and hearing screenings. The Town of Hempstead's Town Clerk's office will also be offering on-site passport services to all in attendance. Seniors who want to obtain or renew a passport should call Senator Fuschillo's office for more infor-

mation about required documentation. In addition, the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) will be offering its Mobile Outreach Program, which includes on-site renewal of drivers licenses and registrations, and issuance of non-driver I D cards. . . . Residents who wish to take advantage of the services provided by DMV must schedule an appointment by calling Senator Fuschillo's office at 546-4100. All fees and forms that are required at a regular DMV office are applicable at Mobile Outreach events. In cooperation with MTA Long Island Bus and the Towns of Hempstead, Oyster Bay and Babylon, free transportation will be available from 10 locations for seniors. Residents who need directions to the Freeport Recreation Center, information regarding transportation or have any other questions should call Senator Fuschillo's office at 546-4100.

just \A/rito HILLARY CLINTON; CALLING... The other day I was £Jt h'ojme writing an article when the phone rang. I expected the caller to be someone from the school district returning my call requesting some information, or my daughter. What I did not expect to hear was a moment's hesitation -and the recorded voice of Senator Hillary Clinton saying, "Hello, this is Hillary;Clinton." I must admit that I am on numerous email and phone lists. Between the work I do professionally and my volunteer work, I tend to call public officials a lot although I always try to keep my respective hats separate. Mrs. Clinton, or at least the recorded Mrs. Clinton, was informing me that I would soon be receiving a document from her office outlining her various initiatives £nd accomplishments relative to Long Island. Campaign season has begun in earnes.1. It's hard to believe that Mrs. Clinton is approaching this campaign season with such gusto since projections show her with an enormous lead. Of course she

also has an enormous war chest, and no doubt, she wants to rack up an impressive win in 2006 so that she can be viewed as the frontrunner in the 2008 presidential campaign. My daughter and son-in-law live in Alexandria, Virginia, and like most residents around the Washington, D.C. beltway, they are pretty knowledgeable about politics. For residents there, government and politics directly affect their jobs, and so just as New York papers are filled with media celebrity sightings, D.C. papers are filled with the behind^ the-scenes goings and comings of elected officials. Frequently my daughter and her husband, who was once a congressman's aide, will question me about my politics. I have-always been a voter who chooses individual candidates rather than one who votes a strict party line. My policy has become more difficult in recent years because candidates are becoming more and more savvy about obscuring their beliefs and not giving a "Yes" or "No" comment to requests for information. When it comes time for

The program was.a follow-up to last year's presentation at which the superintendent first outlined to the community his philosophy of education which includes three basic principles. The educational process should set clear and

high"expectations, offer rigor in a thinking curriculum and apply fair and credible evaluations that effectively measure student performance. "We must demystify learning," Dr. Britto stressed, as he then proceeded to show how that demystification is being applied to the teaching of writing at the elementary level., Using examples of student writing, residents saw clearly how the explana-tion and practice of specific writing skills produced an almost immediate improvement in student writing. ^ "These samples were only five days apart," Dr. Britto noted, as he displayed writing that appeared to be not only that of different children but of different levels of students: "Once they understand, 'they can deconstruct the process for themselves...If students can internalize, they can self-improve...

child is required to learn English. Other nations are energized as they work to attract tho!se white-collar jobs which are being outsourced from our county. Most frightening is the focus of militants and terrorists,; willing to lie in wait in sleeper cells for years and even to volunteer for suicide missions - all while we in American continue to play the partisan political game. We don't have that luxury anymore. What must ,we do as citizens? We must become informed. In addition to the most publicized races for New York State governor, attorney general and comptroller and the U.S. Senate race between Hillary Clinton and John Spencer (along with a few minor party candidates), locally our state senators, members of the Assembly and members of Congress are running. Find a quiet moment to think about what is important to you. Prioritize your issues. Find out what positions the incumbents and their opponents support. And be aware of how the candidates would fund their proposals. If we can memorize detailed sports statistics, if we can figure out how to purchase hard-to-get concert tickets, if we can find time to watch TV, scroll the Internet and go to movies, we should .be able to find a little bit of time to prepare ourselves to cast our ballots this November. Remember, voting is not like picking a lottery number. The goal is not necessarily to vote for the winner. The goal is to vote for the person whose philosophy and voting record best represent your beliefs. And hopefully the winners will be those candidates whose first priority is the common good.

them to actually cast a vote, therefore, the result can be a real surprise. Also, I have changed. Perhaps it is just the aging process, but lately, I am more aware than ever before that issues are a lot more complex than officials would have you believe. I am, therefore, definitely one of those people whom pollsters abhor. Nothing about me makes me a predictable voter. More and more I find myself pondering which, of the many important issues, will be the determining issue for me in forming my decision this November. Actually, I wish that Mrs. Clinton had been on the line and that I was not simply listening to a recorded message. I would have loved the opportunity to ask her, perhaps to plead with her, as I would with elected officials from both parties, to lower the rhetoric. I am appalled that for the last several decades, our political process has been consumed with excessive partisanship. I am frightened that no matter the level of crisis, elected officials of both parties will not stop using every issue for personal or party gain. I am disgusted that there is so much that needs to be done while officials pursue their own narrow interests. For .decades, each of the political parties has been playing political hardball while our enemies have been playing reality hardball. While all of this polticial viciousness goes on, others have been single-minded in pursuing more focused goals. Developing countries "are educating their children. At the most recent School to.

One No Trump

; ..•'--"'"• cs To The Leader: , In the September 21 edition of "The Leader," Laura Schofer reports; that Nassau County • assessor Harvey o: Leyinson ^insists ;,that the proposed Q Trump Restaurant for Jones Beach be forced to pay an annual property tax of $1,400,000, to the Wantagh School District. Yet I; educated in economic H : theory, see only two consequences if this tax is imposed: OJ • Trump will build elsewhere, or not at all; <u • Trump will cheerfully pay the tax surrounded by smiling children, and add the increased overhead to the restaurant's food prices. Both consequences would deprive some of the public of their rights to the service and jobs that naturally flow from capital investment. Wait a minute, Jay! Consider the better education Wantagh's children will enjoy with this extra $1,400,000; also the lower tax to residents!.This might be true if the teachers' union failed to extort the windfall at its next contract "negotiation." But if history is any guide the union will simply increase its ransom demands for the

We go there frequently and often take visitors to see it. I never tire of the exhibits. Many go for the I-Max. For me, IMax is a wonderful after-thought. So much love has gone into this wonderful museum. Can't someone be found who can turn its finances around? It has amazed me that I haven't found a way to be a member or "friend" of the museum as I can and have at the art museum in Roslyn. I'm not able to give much monetarily but if interest could be built among all of us, our little donations would keep the Cradle afloat, or better put, aloft! Kay Zurcher

Dr. Britto explains learning from page 5 be able to tell you why they got the grade they got and how they can make it better...Students can reflect, revise and resubmit. You are not born smart. Learning is not genetic." Using the teaching of narrative writing as his sample materials, Dr. Britto displayed initial paragraphs, which he first described as "narrative laundry lists." Once students were introduced to the use of a sound, action or thought/question introductions, the paragraphs became exciting "snapshots in time" which included description that required careful preparation and understanding. "Once they understand how to do it, they can apply it. We are not teaching to the test. Don't confuse a task with a skill. We are giving them skills They under-. stand the critieria. They learn how to analyze their own work," he added. "If you are writing about a 'wild thing,' teachers ask students to walk like a wild thing. Close your eyes and picture a wild thing. Use your five senses to describe a wild thing...Look at these paragraphs. Once they learn how to do it,, they can do it for themselves." The buzz of excitement at this second public presentation was similar to that expressed by parents last year at the superintendent's first report to the community on the teaching/learning process he envisioned. Then and now, Dr. Britto asked members of the audience to view specific writing samples, to discuss the grading process with someone close by and then to agree on a grade. Through this hands-on activity, the adults soon learned that it is necessary to know the criteria for excellence as well as the specific skills necessary to, achieve,

excellence. This is the process of learning which Dr. Britto wants students to acquire for themselves. "We are not just teaching facts; we want the students to use their skills, to understand'major ideas. We want them to take discreet skills and use them in a larger context. Students must learn to selfdirect. We are giving them a road map." The excitement of learning and improving was evident in the words of the superintendent and the questions of parents. "Does it work for everyone? ~ Why did you start it in fourth, and fifth grades ?'What is happening at the middle the high school? What can I do at home?" This kind of demystification is presently being applied to other areas of the teaching/learning process. Secondary level teachers are demystifying the skills of reading content in every academic discipline. "It has been said that every test is a reading test," Dr. Britto noted. At the high school, an outside consultant is continuing work with staff to identify "what are our strengths and how do we expand it into every area." "We are having discussions and then everyone will want to take ownership in the process and outcome." Describing his visit to the high school that day where he and .pther educators conducted strategic visits to observe students, Dr Britto noted, "I was happy with what we saw. Students are discussing important ideas." The superintendent made several references to his "contract with the community." "I want to explain to you how I invest your money in professional development ...You passed the budget, albeit by only ,

Very Special Pet,,, Very Special Care,,, Very Special Hospital..

five votes, so we were able to'purchase leveled reading libraries at the elementary level. Independent reading has to support classroom instruction." The superintendent understands he is accountable, and like the accountability he expects from students and teachers, he is placing the success of his superintendency on the line as he commits himself and his staff to this very focused process of improvement. As parents ask questions about a wide range of teaching and learning topics, Dr. Britto looked at his watch. The program, filled with audience response and reaction, had already lasted one half hour beyond the scheduled time. "We can have another program. We can discuss all of this. I hope you enjoyed it."

The buzz of parent reaction seemed its own response. "I told Dr. [Shirley] Martin [the assistant superintendent for human resources) that it must be excking working with him," said Peter McLaughlin, former Chairperson of the Baldwin Educational Assembly and a former teacher himself. That excitement was particularly clear to residents as they watched a superintendent whose own pride in student improvement is palpable. "Look at that you see that choice of verb? This writing is not coming by luck. The students are learning sophisticated literary devices. After reading this, you want to read more." By the conclusion of his report to the community on academic excellence, it was clear that the parents wanted more.

According to detectives, Daniel Morales, 48, of Western Boulevard, was driving a 1996 Ford sedan with his two children, a 5-year-old boy and 7-yearold girl, in the back seat, traveling westbound on Lincoln Street, Baldwin Harbor, when his car struck a 33-yearold man working at the side of his parked vehicle on Lincoln Street. In an apparent attempt to flee, Mr. Morales continued westbound on Lincoln Street, striking another parked vehicle while doing so. He then left that accident scene, continuing to a dead end, whereupon he backed up at a high rate of speed, striking three additional parked cars before coming to a stop. The owner of one of the parked vehicles reportedly detained him until the arrival of police. During the course of his arrest, he

8reportedly became combative with officers, causing injury to First Precinct N) Police Officer Timothy Dilena, who subsequently required treatment at H g* Nassau University Medical Center. . The injured pedestrian sustained a broken leg and hip injury, for which he was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit at NUMC.

We Currently Have Openings I Celebrating 37 Years of Quality Child Care


Washington comes to Baldwin School District from page 1 Garcia is attending Nassau Community College with the goal of becoming a physical therapist. Reflecting on the relationship, Ms, Robbins said, "I still speak to him but I give him his space. He CN knows I will always be there for him." Speaking of the mentoring process, I Jean Lahage Cohen, the executive direco tor of. the Mentoring Partnership of Long Island, which coordinates the annual Teens on the Job project, stressed that "mentoring helps students to 3 become the best they can be." She noted H that not only does the student gain important real-life experience, but the u<D •O- mentor "becomes part of the young people they are mentoring." Among the practical lessons learned by students is, "You don't always get your first choice." She said that in showing students' possible shadow day choices, she points out, "Britney Spears' job is not listed here." Mentoring helps students understand the process that -must be followed to achieve their goals and dreams. Senior High School teacher Eric Gomez explained a four-day accounting profession in-residence program at Hofstra University. Senior Robert Williams, who attended, described the program, which included workshops on accounting and practical workshops on topics such as preparing a resume, dressing for success and preparing for an interview. Students visited several .major accounting firms as well as a local golf course, where they heard a talk on "how golf and business are intertwined." At Belmont Racetrack they heard a presentation on "the accounting of horseracing." Dressed for his own success in a suit, - tie ^and dress shirt, Mr. Williams already looked well on his way to his professed goal - "to be a rich businessman." Baldwin's School to Career Partnership has been in existence for 13 years a,nd includes projects and activities from K-12. According to Assistant Superintendent Michael Roccoforte, the formal mentoring portion began seven years ago and includes local and regional businesses as well as mentoring by district staff. "At first we just wanted to give students an opportunity to learn about careers, but we then discovered that the shadowing experience also provided positive adult role models with counseling opportunities with mentors who helped students in directing their futures." Those businesses with repeat mentor-



ing relationships with Baldwin students will be honored at the upcoming Long Island Builders award ceremoney. They include: Northrop Grumman, the Baldwin Public .Library, Citibank, Delicious Moments Catering of Baldwin, Hofstra University, Mercy Medical Center, Jones Beach State Park, the Long Island Mentoring Partnership, State Farm Insurance and Junior Achievement of New York. Since its founding, the overall coordinator of the school to career program has been high school business teacher PatBanhazl, with middle school teacher Pat Sherman coordinating mentoring activities at the middle school. Numerous staff members act as liaisons to various businesses in activities that have included full-day programs at Mercy Medical Center, which was described as "a little city" by Mr. Freiberg because of the wide variety of experiences that this hospital environment can provide. The Jones Beach relationship involves students in technology and occupational education classes who complete projects following plans and requirements provided by the state park system. Visits to

Hofstra University as well as a variety of on-site visits to businesses, participation in the annual Teens on the Job program which offers one day shadow opportunities, junior achievement workshops and various other field trips and school pre-

sentations help to give students a wider perspective so they can learn about the many career choices that are available as well as the academic and personel skills that will be necessary for them to fulfill their dreams.

STUDENT ROBERT WILLIAMS spoke at Baldwin's first School to Career Advisory Meeting of the year and told teachers, mentors and Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy about the four-day program on the accounting profession that he attended at Hofstra University. r

Crosby, Stills and Nash: A long time coming by Doug Finlay The 60s seminal band Crosby, Stflls and Nash (CSN) played their first meaningful gig .at Woodstock, for. many the ultimate rock music love-in of our time. They didn't play very well, and their signature tune of those earliest days, "Suite: Judy Blues Eyes," Steven Stills' ode to his onetime girlfriend Judy Collins, sounded more like a practice session than a performance. . . . ..... What a way to introduce yourself to, 400,000 people who just might want to buy your music. By now they have their guitars tuned and their timing down right, and proved it once again quite effortlessly at a recent sold-out Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young (CNSY) performance at the Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre. One is best to keep in mind at the same time that the Woodstock era was born as a reaction to, or dissent against the Vietnam War; that love and togetherness trump guns and death anytime. So CSN's music was as much about the ideal - no, the reality - of love and togetherness as about the widespread destruction war causes. Songs such as "Our House" and "Teach Your Children," conveyed the warmth of family love but ran in eery .counterbalance to "Ohio" and "Military Madness," songs about what bad politics can accomplish when we let it. That the Iraqi war now occupies the American psyche has given CSNY a new urgency to get out on the trail and get the message out in a tour aptly called the Freedom of Speech tour. It seemed as though every song during their over three-hour performance related to the message that we are still

in a country that reveres freedom of speech and that they were there, to remind us. rv recent criticism of .'[the New York Times notwithstanding, f CSNY are a tight musical outfit. They are in many ways more complete when Neil Young is with them, allowing them to unleash more.fullthroated harmonies. Just as every building ever built, including the pyramids, has a .foundation of four c'orners, like the four cardinal directions. So, too, these four complete the whole. While Mr. Young has shied away from CSN when CSN-would go out on tour during summer, ostensibly due to a rift between him and Steven Stills, he and Mr. Stills seemed this time to carry the band with their wailing guitars, standing next to one another face-to-face much of the night enjoying the camaraderie - if not the competition. ' Mr. Young also pranced around the stage, talking and introducing many of the songs. And his wall-of-sound guitar with its heavy reverberations contrasted Mr. Stills, more tasteful, eloquent leads. Indeed, it is Mr. Stills' guitar that identifies CSNY more than Mr. Young's. The songs matter most . But it was the songs that mattered, that helped weave the message of the tour. Each one, even with its seemingly innocuous title, lent something1 to the message. "Almost Cut My Hair" could be about the rebellion and principle we must maintain even in the face of other views, if we are counted. "Our House," a favorite of the soldout stadium, which had them singing along, is about the life we can have when we work toward love and har-

mony. "Carry On" is about waging the tireless battle against those who would take away our freedoms, our chance at achieving that harmony. Was Neil Young's "Only Love Can . Break Your Heart" about losing and leaving sons and daughters on today's battlefields? You get the picture. "We have all been here before," go the words to. "Deja Vu." Indeed, we have; "What if you knew her and saw her/lying dead on the ground," chime the words from "Ohio." Your heart would be broken, might be the answer. Mr. Young and Mr. Stills dug out an Old tune from their time together in Buffalo Springfield to continue their point. In "For What It's Worth," they sing that "Paranoia strikes deep/and into your heart it will creep." But rather than sung the way it was first presented in the 1960s, with acoustic guitars, it was set to a blues beat with electric guitar leading the way. Had that "paranoia" crept into the president's thinking in sanctioning the war? Mr. Young has persisted in knowing an answer. But his only conduit at the moment is to write a song demanding the impeachment of the president. Emboldened on a screen in back of them, the words were a searing indictment of Mr. Bush for leading us to war without reason while at the same time being held unaccountable for what Mr. Young certainly believes is the terrible conflict of Iraq. Also carried on the screen were the odd images of flag-draped coffins of those killed in action. Odd because^ these are the very images the administration will not let the American people see on television. In "Find The Cost of Freedom," a haunting melody sang acappela, the

screen ticked off the number of casualties one-by-one leading up to over 2,600 in the time it took CSNY to sirig the words and it verses, starting with, "Find the cost of freedom/buried in the ground/ Mother Earth ; will swallow you/ Lay. your body down." The flip side On the flip side, CSNY are also full of whimsy and lightheartedness. "Southern Cross" is a standing favorite of the audience, as it draws on the metaphor of love: "When you see the Southern Cross for the first time/then you know why it is you really came this way." It's a risk, this thing called love, but when it reveals itself, you understand. "Guinevere" is another of David Crosby's haunting melodies of love, and whether in fact it is something we can hold onto. Mr. Stills played a newly written song for his daughter, which had a delightfully slow and' bluesy beat to it. The band played several other songs of their respective careers outside of CSNY, but indeed missing were tight little gems such Mr. Stills' "Love The One You're With," or "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes"; Mr. Young's "Old Man" and "Cinnamon Girl"; or CSN's "Marrekesh Express." The night ended with Mr. Young's rollicking "Rockin1 In A Free World," complete with all the feedback you'd want and banging the guitar down on the floor while it emitted its strange and wonderful sounds. For this reviewer at least, seeing Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young perhaps at their best in reminding us in song that the struggles to keep our freedom of speech never end has indeed been a long time comin'.

Medicare Part D and the doughnut hole by Laura Schofer Frank Furfaro, a heart transplant patient, stood outside Congressman Peter King's office in Massapequa recently to present him with a dozen doughnuts. The doughnuts, Mr. Furfaro explained, symbolized the "doughnut hple" he and other disabled Americans as well as many senior citizens, are falling into under the Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. He came to see Congressman King to urge him arid other members of the United States Congress to review the federal prescription plan. Under Part D, standard enrollees will pay the first $250 of their medications this year. After this initial deduction, 75 percent of their drug costs will be covered, leaving the beneficiary to pay the remaining 25 percent. However, once the total medication costs have exceeded $2,250 the senior or disabled person must pay for their drugs completely out of pocket and still pay their monthly premium. You can escape the "doughnut hole" once your medication costs exceed $5,100 (in 2006). At that point 95 percent of drug costs are covered. But a recent study by the Kasier Family foundation predicted that of the 11 million Medicare enrollees whose plans include a coverage, gap, nearly 7

million of these individuals will have hit the doughnut hole on September 22. "I am concerned that many Medicare subscribers may be taken by surprise ,by the doughnut hole," said Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy. "And I worry that many seniors will be back in the same predicament they were in before Part D. Some will have to decide whether to pay their bills or purchase prescription drugs." Mary Dewar, the public issues chair for the Long Island Council of Churches said, "Our emergency food centers in Freeport, Hempstead and Riverhead are seeing an increasing number of elderly coming for help to get food because their money has gone for prescriptions. Some of these elderly are getting help from us in buying their prescriptions because they do not have the money and need the prescription to avoid a worsening health situation." Take Frank Furfaro. He is a disabled heart transplant recipient living off a $1,171 Social Security Disability insurance payment and has trouble affording his medication. Social Security informed Mr. Furfaro that he earns $14 over the monthly limit to be eligible for additional help. Mr. Furfaro takes Prograf and Cellcept, immune suppressors, that cost $661 and $329 a month, as well as a $111 monthly premium. He paid two $25 co-payments until he fell into the

doughnut hole in March. "I cleaned out my bank account and then my father's bank account. I had to ask myself if I should live out of my car or stop eating," said Mr. Furfaro. "If I don't take this medication,, I die. What about people who need their cancer drugs?" Congresswoman McCarthy also has concerns about seniors and the disabled who "will put their health at risk by reducing their dosage in order to afford their medication," she said. Mr. Furfaro said he tried reducing his prescription use and felt weaker and tired. Mr. Furfaro said he knew of people who ended up in the hospital. "Then Medicare has to pay for your stay and for your medications [as long as you are in the hospital]. Of course who ends up paying for that?" A study in the New England Journal of Medicine examined the effects that capped prescription drug benefits had on seniors in the Medicare + Choice plan in 2003. Seniors who reached this cap, which is similar to the doughnut hole in Medicare Part D, were more likely to skip doses of treatments, visit hospital emergency departments and die sooner. Furthermore, the New England Journal of Medicine discovered that the annual mortality rate was 22 percent higher than those without such a cap on benefits. "The doughnut hole punishes middle-

class retirees and people with disabilities who have worked their entire lives," said Dr. Carol Pincus, a physician and board member of the Long Island Progressive Coalition. "Look at the median per capita income of these individuals, just $14,664. Even though they don't qualify for special poverty assistance, they are living on meager fixed incomes." In a report issued by the Institute for America' Future, a think tank in Washington D.C., the doughnut hole will grow and increase over time. Reaching the catastrophic coverage threshold in 2006 requires $5,100 in' total drug spending, but this rises to $5,596 in 2007 and $6,158 in 2008. "While the level of spending in the 25 percent coinsurance game will also ' increase, it does not increase at the same rapid rate as the catastrophic level increase. As a result, the total size of the doughnut hole will rapidly increase over time and engulf more and more Americans," reads the report. Congressman King said that "because of Medicare Part D, 16,245 seniors in the Third Congressional District are each saving over $1,100 in prescription drugs; $17.8 million in savings this year alone. In addition, polls show that more than 80 percent of those enrolled in the Medicare drug plans are satisfied with their choice."

Hispanic, Big Fish film CM

by Laura Schofer



£ OH





Looking for something different.from the usual teenage movie fare? Look no further than the Bellmore Movies. This month, there will be two film festivals at the Bellmore Movies on Pettit Avenue in Bellmore. The first is a Latino Film Festival, running the evenings of October 12, 13, 14 and 15, followed by the Big Fish Film Festival on October 16, 17, 18 and 19.

Latino Film Festival

The Bellmore Movies will host the 2nd Annual Latino Film Festival in honor of Hispanic Heritage Month. A total of 12 films will be shown, including local Latino filmmakers from Long H Island and filmmakers as far away as Columbia. T. J. Collins, festival director, said that the "festival provides a window into the culture and way of life [in Central and South America]. Each culture is different and film is a great medium to show the beautiful images of Latin America." For example, Saturday night is Dominican night and one of the featured films is "a documentary on bachata, which is about Santo Domingo blues," Mr. Collins explained. "On Friday evening we will show a Columbian film called Tumba y'Tumbp'; it means steal and stolen." Other festival highlights include one evening dedicated to short films including the three-winners of the Mexcla Latino College Short Film Competition. Mexcla means mixed. * Habla Espanol? No importante. Mr. Collins said that although some of the films are in Spanish, "they have English subtitles. But others are in


English. Some of these films are from local Latino filmmakers, including right here on Long Island," he explained. . After each evening's film there will be a question-and-answer period. "That will be in English," said Mr. Collins. The festival will open on Thursday, October 12, with a wine and cheese reception and live music from 7 to 8 p.m. followed by the first film. Call the Bellmore Movies at 783-3199 for the times for each viewing.

Big Fish brings local color to the Bellmore Movies Beginning on Monday, October 16, the Big Fish Festival opens at the Bellmore Movies. This is as local as local gets. The Long Island Big Fish film festival is a chance for Long Island films and Long Island filmmakers to get ttieir works screened for the public. It also gives filmmakers who were part of the Long Island International Film Expo a chance to capture an award. , Anne Stempfle, one of the owners of the Bellmore Movies as well as one of the sponsors of the Big Fish Festival, told The Leader that "this summer we had close to 400 entries for our Long Island International Film Expo. There were so many good films and 155 were shown but we wanted to provide opportunities to showcase more films by local filmmakers." And so Big Fish was born. Big Fish refers to the shape of Long Island and that includes anyone from Queens and Brooklyn as well as Nassau and Suffolk counties. Also, films about Long Island or shot on Long Island are also included in the line-up. Debra Markowitz, president of the fcong Island Film/TV foundation and

in Bellmore

anothler {sponsor of this event, said there are " 15 j films that run the entire gamut from horror flicks to documentaries. And pur filmmakers are all ages, from college-aged students to filmmakers who fre in their 60s."As; a grassroots film festival it will highlight independent Long Island films. Each day the festival will include a mix of short and feature length films. "And, because all of the films will be local, we're looking forward to near perfect attendance for the Q & A sessions, which are a large part of the draw to the Long Island International Film Expo," explained Ms. Markowitz. Some of the films include the documentary "Wings of their Own" about women pilots; a short film entitled "Heads or Tails," about dating with your pets and a feature-length film called

"Ghosts Never Sleep" staring Faye Diinaway, Sean Young and Tony Goldwyn. For opening night there will be a party between 5:30 and 6:30 p.m. "Your ticket stub gets you into the party and for that evening's film at 7 p.m.," said Ms. Markowitz. A 9:30 p.m. show will follow. Tuesday, October 17, and Wednesday, October 18, there are three showings at 4:15 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. On Thursday, October 19, which is closing night, there will be no 9:30 p.m. showing because there will be a reception honoring the winners. "This is new territory for us," said Ms. Markowitz, "but Long Island does have the talent. It will be interesting to see how this develops."

A Viet vet gets his diploma - 30 years later! Despite good grades, William Gales left Freeport High School in 1973 to 8, serve his country in the Vietnam War. More than 30 years later, Mr. Gales smiled broadly as he received his high school diploma from Freeport Superintendent of Schools Dr. Eric L. Eversley. The belated diploma was granted through Operation Recognition, a State >Bducation Department program allowing World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veterans to receive diplomas from the schools they left to join the Armed Services. This is the first diploma to be awarded by Freeport to a Vietnam veteran under Operation Recognition. Director of Adult and Continuing Education 1) Estelle Weiss, who arranged for the H diploma presentation, prepared a meaningful ceremony in the Administration Building, with staff on hand in the board room to offer congratulations and best wishes to the new graduate. "This is not our standard graduation ceremony, but certainly it is not less important," said Dr. Eversley as he

presented the diploma. "This is a great opportunity for us to award a diploma to an individual who has accomplished many things in life, and to support him in his'future endeavors." Mr. Gales, who trained at Fort Dix, New Jersey, and served in the regular army in Vietnam as a company clerk from 1973-75, learned about the program through a government contractor in Florida, and worked for two years to track down military records that would allow him to qualify and receive his diploma under Operation Recognition. "I'm so grateful for this opportunity," said Mr. Gales. "Someone told me, 'It's never too late,' and they were right. Now, I'm able to show my children how important a high school diploma is." The newest Freeport High School graduate, previously a supervisor for a moving company, is studying real estate and also seeking entrance to the New York Culinary Institute. Mr. Gales grew up in Freeport, and now lives in Hempstead. He is an ordained minister, and serves as a chaplain at the Nassau

County jail - where he himself had been imprisoned during a 14-month low period in his life. Since then, he has come a

long way back - and getting his high school diploma is just the icing on the cake he may soon be expertly baking.

VIETNAM VETERAN and Freeport High School graduate William Gales proudly displays his new tee shirt and diploma, flanked by Estelle Weiss, Freeport director of adult and continuing education, and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Eric L. Eversley.
