Public hearing on proposed new real estate law The Freeport Village Board of Trustees will hold a public hearing on Monday, November 20 to review a proposed new law that is aimed to help curtail overoccupancy in the village of Freeport. The law will forbid real estate brokers, agents and/or sales people from knowingly selling or renting a residence or building that violates the current certificate of occupancy. "This proposal is part of the ongoing effort on the part of the Village of Freeport to ensure the safety and protection of our citizens from the very real dangers of over-occupancy and the threats to the lives and the property of the residents as a result of overcrowded living conditions," said Mayor William Glacken. "This latest addition to the village code assures that local dwellings cannot be misrepresented and the legalities concerning the property will be observed." Real estate agents or brokers would be subject to a fine if they falsely advertise or list a dwelling or building to a prospective buyer. For example, if real estate agents knowingly advertise a onefamily dwelling as a two-family dwelling they would be subject to penalties that could include fines, imprisonment and a record of a conviction to the New York Department of State's licensing bureau.

Each property in Nassau County is issued a certificate of occupancy which lists if a residential dwelling is a one-family, two-family or three-family dwelling, for example. When a prospective buyer is purchasing a home, they are required to have a title'search conducted on the property to determine the proper occupancy. Sometimes there are conflicts between county records and the village's records so it is important to have a thorough title search done by the buyer's attorney. The law would be enforced by the building department or the police department which would write out tickets for violations. Each violation would include a fine of $1,000 or 15 days in the Nassau County Correctional Center or both. The Village of Malverne has a similar ordinance. If passed, the law will be filed with the office of the New York secretary of state. It would take approximately two \veeks before the law goes into effect. The hearing begins at 8 p.m. in the conference room in Village Hall, located on Ocean Avenue. All interested parties are encouraged to attend. -Laura Schofer

He added, "How many people do you know that still have antennas on their roofs'?" A Cablevision spokesperson issued the following statement: "Cablevision provides high-speed Internet access in 60 percent of the homes on Long Island, and has already attracted more than a third of the local phone market - providing the first real alternative to the Bell phone monopoly. Cablevision has been successful in a competitive market because our Internet access is faster, our phone service delivers much more value and our television product is far superior to satellite or telephone company TV, and Long Islanders know the difference."

A second hearing was to have taken place Monday, to consider rezoning a location at 256 and 256A Sportsmans Avenue from Business B to Residence A, but was adjourned for a second time until December 11. The hearing had been adjourned from September 25 to allow neighborhood residents to meet with the builder. Deputy Village Attorney Howard Colton said he received the request for another adjournment from the builder who said he needed more time to prepare. Trustees also set two public hearings for their Monday, December 4, meeting to consider rezoning requests. One hearing will consider rezoning (continued on page 19)

roundabout freep>ort MEET THE ANCESTORS: At a meeting of the African-Atlantic Genealogical Society (AAGS), at the Freeport Memorial Library, Linda Rhodes Jones and Wilhelmena Rhodes Kelly shared an historic find. The sisters had just returned from a genealogy conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, where they conducted research and confirmed that they were descendants of John Rolfe and Matoaka Pocahontas Powhatan. Oral history and years of genealogical research implied their mixed ancestry. DNA testing via AAGS' DNA-4-Genealogy Project proved their Sub-Saharan African, European and Native American heritage. And the trip to the Family History Library of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Utah uncovered their historic ancestors.

Calling all non-profits Recently, we called up a fellow newspaper editor to ask for advice and were given an offer of a free ad even though they are far away. "Hey, you never know if someone knows someone," was the cheerful explanation. Well, that kind of serendipity could happen here too. We know several non-profits that are short on funds and yet have wish lists. Perhaps they could use a fax machine, a rolling cooler, some dog food or blankets. Such donations could free up their tight funds to pay other expenses. Meanwhile one of our readers might have just those items and be wondering what to do with them. We invite local non-profit agencies to submit their holiday wish lists to us via email at, fax 3780287 or mail, 1840 Merrick Avenue, Merrick NY 11566. W& would publish them in our newspapers and on our website until the holidays, and hope they will find a perfect match in one of our readers.

WHAT IT MEANS...Each election. I am pleased that Doug Diana, the Republican executive leader in Baldwin, allows me to sit in while the numbers are calculated. One by one, various committee people bring in the results of their particular election district. Listening to conversations and watching the tallies add up, it is interesting to reflect on what it all means, particularly regarding the representation Baldwin receives from its various elected officials. Despite concerted community lobbying efforts about five years ago to create "one Baldwin" after the most recent census and redistricting, Baldwinites still had too many elected officials representing them. What does that mean? We have three members representing Baldwin in the state Assembly, two state senators and two members of Congress representing us at the federal level. Mr. Diana commented that even those numbers don't tell the whole story. The confusion is even greater because those three election districts for Congress, the state Senate, and state Assembly - obviously aren't geographically identical. In fact, this year, there were 15 different ballot possibilities for voters, depending on where they live in Baldwin, because of the various permutations that the geography of these dissimilar election districts created. (Al the county level, we also have two different legislators representing Baldwin while, at the town level, we have two Ttie-mbers of the Town Board.

The problem being described, therefore, exists in these political jurisdictions as well.) Some people might feel, "the more the merrier," but we wonder if that's the reality. How much time will elected officials expend representing a very small piece of their district? How much effort will they put forth when the number of votes they could possibly secure from a community is so small? In the entire 19th assembly district for Baldwin (south Baldwin), for example, only 1,051 votes were cast in total. Of those, 771 were for the Democratic candidate. The incumbent and overall victor in the 19th district, David McDonough, a Republican, received only 338 votes. In the 18th district, 1,454 ballots were cast, with 1,158 going to Earlene Hooper, a Democrat. The most votes for a member of the Assembly were cast in the 14th district with Robert Barra, the Republican incumbent and overall victor, receiving 2,867 votes and the challenger, Dan Torres, a Democrat, receiving 2,768. However, if their major party lines alone were counted, Mr. Torres would have beaten Mr. Barra in Baldwin by 2,768 to 2,317. In that case, third party endorsements were the deciding local factor. Similar numbers are found in other race categories. In the Third Congressional District won overall by incumbent Republican Peter King, just 1,474 votes were cast in Baldwin and Mr. King received only 623 of them. In the Eighth Senatorial Digtnct, 2,532 votes were cast in Baldwin and the


incumbent Republican and overall winner Charles Fuschillo received only 909 votes. What's the point? Without deprecating any elected official's work ethic, we must, nevertheless be realistic. How much effort will be expended worrying over a tiny part of an election district, particularly if that area, which is small to begin with, tends to vote for the opposite party? To their credit, both David McDonough and Charles Fuschillo do attend events in Baldwin. While I don't pretend to know his full schedule of events, I have yet to see Peter King in Baldwin since his district's boundaries were shifted, leaving him only a very small section in our community. If the small area and potential number of votes might hinder a zealous representation, so, too, does the Republican/Democratic mix. While one might hope that two-party representation would result in officials vying to impress constituents ("Who has done more for me lately?"), that does not seem to be the case. Additionally, the problem is compounded because in too many cases, there is very little cooperative effort among parties, except, perhaps, when it comes to state aid for education. On that issue, the Long Island delegation works together. What does all this mean? It means that residents and their unofficial leaders in various civic organizations must be much more pro-active in contacting elected officials. Just because an elected official receives the bulk of his or

her vote from another community does not mean that Baldwin should be ignored. There are some officials who show up for everything. The late state Senator Norman Levy, who only represented part of Baldwin, came to everything despite winning his elections by overwhelming margins. He took nothing and nobody for granted. * It is a concern when elected officials don't respond to local invitations. It is a concern-when incumbents, in particular, refuse to be interviewed by the media. It is a concern when an elected official chooses not to respond to letters, e-mails or phone calls when a constituent's concerns or positions differ from the official's position. And it is also a problem for communities which are so geographically divided to try to muster up the political clout they need in order to have their concerns addressed. Government works not only if elected officials are honest and hardworking. Citizens must be equally intelligent and hardworking. The future of Baldwin will be the future of a whole community, not the individual success of one tiny piece of an Assembly, Senatorial or Congressional District. Let's give all these weary elected officials a little time after their campaigns for their post-election vacations. Then, let us be vigilant in maintaining communication with them, no matter how large or small the area of Baldwin they represent. After all, two years (the term of office for the Assembly, state Senate and Congress) isn't that long a time.

needs food


by Laura Schofer '"The pantry is bare," Deacon Francisco Cales told The Leader. Our Holy Redeemer Parish Outreach on Pine. Street in Freeport, has very little X) food to feed the 500 or so people that a depend each month. 2 "And onthisthem year we've seen a large I increase in the number of people who -a need our assistance," continued Deacon Francisco. So far, in 2006 Outreach has fed 4,624 people through the end of September. Last year, at the end of September, it assisted 4,240 people. "We've seen an increase every month," he explained, and "we expect the need will grow over the winter months." Our Holy Redeemer Parish Outreach (OHR) is Under the auspices of Our Holy Redeemer Roman Catholic Church in Freeport. OHR feeds a -cross-section of people that includes those,who are homeless and non-residents. No one is turned away. People live in Freeport and the surrounding communities. Many of those individuals they feed are children. However, they may have to turn people away if the community is unable to provide more assistance. Presently, OHR is in need of any and all"food items. They can store non-perishables such as canned fruits and vegetables; boxed items including rice and pasta as well as perishable items in their refrigerators - eggs, milk, bread and juice as well as-any meat that the public is-generous enough to donate, including IN

Hi Hello to honor Glacken, Eversley Mayor William F. Glacken and Preeport School Superintendent Dr. Eric L. Eversley will be honored as Child Advocates of the Year by HiHello Child Care Center at its 2nd Annual Child Advocates of the Year Tribute Dinner. The dinner will take place on Wednesday, November 29, at Westbury Manor. The cocktail hour begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by dinner and an awards ceremony. "We started this Tribute Dinner two years ago because we wanted to recognize individuals and organizations that help make this a better world and build .a better future for children arid aren't necessarily in the early childhood community," states Joann Bousquet, executive director at Hi-Hello. "While Dr. Eversley, by his profession, is inherently a child advocate, we wanted to recognize his unique combination of compassion, initiative and drive in bringing positive change to the Freeport School District. Mayor Glacken has always been a proponent of early childhood education and has advocated for quality child care; he has been dedicated to bringing positive change to the Freeport community for children and families." Other honorees that evening will be: the Rauch Foundation;' Bob Rubin, president, TDR Educational Supply Co.; and Janet Walerstein, executive director, Child Care Council of Suffolk.

police news •_ Police reports come from

law enforcement agencies. Suspects are presumed innocent unless and until convicted in court. Nassau Police report the arrests of two men for Grand Larceny on Monday November 6, at 10 a.m. According to detectives, Gregory O. Bailey, 23, of Hempstead was attempting to make a bank drop at the Bank of New York on West Merrick Road when Brian J. Coston, 23, of Far Rockaway approached him. Mr. Coston produced a silver object under a bandana and demanded the bank drop bag that was from Mr Bailey's place of employment, Rent-A-Center on West Merrick Road. He fled the scene with the bank bag that contained an unknown amount of cash. This incident was witnessed by an off-duty New York City police officer who pursued him on foot and apprehended him on Miller Avenue. The proceeds and the weapon were recovered. There were no injuries. After an investigation by First Squad detectives it was determined that Mr. Bailey and Mr. Coston, who were acquaintances, and had acted in consort and planed the theft. Both defendants were charged with Grand Larceny.

Additional charges of Conspiracy and Making a False Statement against both defendants are still pending and will be presented to the Grand Jury. +++ The Fifth Squad reports the arrests of four people for a robbery that occurred on Monday, November 6, at 2:10 a.m. in West Hempstead. According to detectives, one of the defendants, Amanda Batista, called the 32-year-old male victim and asked him to meet her at the Courtesy Hotel on Hempstead Avenue. When the victim entered the hotel room with Ms. Batista, he observed the three other defendants, who demanded money from him. One of the defendants then physically removed an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim's pants pocket. He left the room uninjured and called 911. All four defendants were arrested a short time later at the hotel and are identified as: Abdou Sow (male), 21, of NewYork City. • Amanda Batista, 20, of Perth Amboy, New Jersey. • Jean Polo (male), 27, of Queens • Alain Bernier, 21, of Guy Lombardo Avenue, Freeport. The defendants are charged with Robbery and Conspiracy.

To The Leader: If the public and their politicians were doctors, we would all be dead. Doctors intelligently seek the root causes of a disease rather that only treating its symptoms. Freeporters and their officials are justifiably irate to discover that tax-supported sexual predators have been domiciled in their neighborhoods. As previously, in regard to exploring property taxes, some Freeporters are envious that Rockville Centre and Garden City don't house their "fair share" of these ex-cons. As if spreading misery cures the malady. The root cause of this menace lies with its enabler, the ACLU. It seems this pro-terrorist, Marxist-oriented pack of sick lawyers cleverly abuses our United States Constitution in order to destroy our Constitution and our blessed nation. Many child-molesting perverts are incurable, compulsive, recidivist and must be permanently removed from

society and access to children. But the ACLU, obsessed with the rights of these vicious criminals, springs them almost every times the cops make an arrest. The ACLU, ignoring the superior rights of innocent children, has a long history of legally protecting NAMBLA, the North American Man-Boy to Love Association. But the ACLU perpetually persecutes the Boy Scouts because the Scouts insist in including •n God and excluding known homosexuals. Freeporters! If you really seek safety 8from child-molesters, you must apply the "Jay Solution": First castrate their enablers, the ACLU. Strike at the root cause! Second, lobby for a law forcing the predators either into permanent incarceration upon a second conviction or an optional castration. The Constitutional rights of children and their mothers to live without fear supercedes the rights of known, guilty, incurable, rabid predators. Alan Jay

Grandparents Day at Bayview

Baldwin schools mark Red Ribbon Week Baldwin elementary schools participated in the National Family Partnership's Red Ribbon Week from October 23-31 with a variety of activities to reinforce drug prevention and drug-free choices. At Brookside, Meadow, Shubert and Steele Schools, students signed pledges, created banners, and took part in different daily events such as Wear Red Day to commemorate Red Ribbon Week, Crazy-Sock Day ("Sock it to Drugs"), and Sweats'Day ("Living Drug Free is No Sweat"). Also at

FIRST GRADERS to grandparents: "We love you!"

Meadow School, lessons about feelings were incorporated into the classroom curriculum. And at Milburn School, students "teamed up against drugs" with a visit from the Long Island Ducks mascot to all the classrooms, sold Red Ribbon magnets with proceeds going to the Baldwin Council Against Drug Abuse (BCADA) and marched in a Heroes Parade as their favorite hero - from Albert Einstein to firefighters and teachers - because it is heroic to say no to drugs!

"Did you feel the wisdom when you came into the building this morning?" Bayview Avenue School Principal Odette Wills asked students as the school's annual Grandparents and Special Persons Day began. There was a resounding yes from the Freeport school's children, who presented a sweet and touching tribute to their guests and later hosted the elder generation in their classrooms. Displaying large red hearts that read "We love you," students sang "Let's Go See Our Grandparents," written to the tune of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," recited an acrostic poem

"Grandparents are Special" and sang "Grandparents" and "That's a Family." Children also presented flowers to Edith Flynn and Agnes Lawrence, guests from the neighboring Meadowbrook Care Center. Grandparents and other guests wrote words of wisdom on a large white board in the Bayview lobby, were "pinned" with hand-made boutonnieres, and enjoyed breakfast as well. "This is absolutely my favorite day of the year," Ms. Wills told the grandparents. "Thank you for believing in us and inspiring us to do our very best."

Phbility. You can depend on it. LIPA ranked most reliable overhead electric system in New York StatCe For the 4th consecutive year, LIPA's transmission and distribution system continues to be ranked among the best in New York State. LIPA has earned this distinction by attaining the top ranking for quickest time for restoration of service and shortest average duration of outages, and being ranked among the top 2 NYS utilities in longest frequency between service interruptions. In developing its award winning reliability track record, LIPA has invested approximately $2 billion in reinforcing and upgrading its transmission and distribution system since 1998. The power of ReLIPAbility was evident this past summer during August's record breaking heat wave and in the aftermath of tropical storm Ernesto. In both instances, while electric customers in neighboring electric systems went without power for days, even weeks, LIPA had restored over 85% of all power outages within a remarkable four hours.

as a holiday tradition by Laura Schofer The beginnings of all Things are small. -Cicero Piled high on our dining room table is a mound of papers that looks like junk mail but is really a heap of gold. No, it's not a sweepstakes coupon or lottery ticket. The piles of papers are appeals from charities and non-profits. Instead of getting money, our family is going through those papers to give away money. Sometime during the holiday season, my husband and I, along with our two children, read each and every appeal that we have received throughout the previous year. I keep them in a special file and pull them out for our annual "give away." It's become quite a family tradition in our house that began when our children were little. Although my son has just graduated from college and my daughter is a college freshman, they have both agreed to continue this tradition. It begins with a special meal. When the children were small we would use

this time as an opportunity to talk about a commitment to our beliefs that is better to give than receive and that the good deeds we perform matter most in our lives. But now that they are adults we can sit down and directly begin our work. In the past, each one of us was allotted a specific amount of money "to spend.'* No\v my children bring their own money to the table: money they have earned on their own. My husband and I also provide them with some additional funds. There have always been some ground rules. Everyone must read every appeal. Everyone must agree on who should receive money and how much the organization should receive. There have been some disagreements over the years. My son. Drew, once threatened to pull out of the "giveaway" because he thought my husband and I were swayed too much by our politics.

Now he too is swayed by his own political beliefs which are not always in line with my husbands or mine. Over the years we have tried to instill in our children the belief that even the small amount of money they had to give would be for someone else's welfare. Now their pocketbooks are larger and so is their understanding of the big and sometimes very sad world. Each of us has our favorite causes or passions. My daughter Morgan gives money to organizations that support women's rights. My son Drew gives money to groups that assist runaways and troubled boys, and my husband supports advocacy groups in the fields of education and health care. I have more of a Chinese menu approach — one from column A and another from column B. There are always surprises. Each year we receive new appeals. What I always find astounding is the number

of worthy organizations who are trying in some small (or big) way to change the world for the better. One year we gave money to a group that provides livestock for families in the Third World; another year we supported a group of women entrepreneurs in Chile. This year I think my portion of the "giveaway" will stay closer to home. I plan to "think globally but act locally," I have come across so many caring organizations and charities founded or supported by our neighbors that I feel compelled to help them out. They have had a hands-on approach, a real passion for their cause, whether it's medical research, education, the environment or social service, that it makes me stand up and take notice. They have a commitment to make the world a better place and that is what our family "giveaway" is all about. If you are considering giving away any money this season, don't forget those groups close to home. As George Eliot said, "What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?" Let's try and remember that this holiday season.

by Douglas Finlay Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens Brown paper packages tied up with strings These are a few of my favorite things... I'm an average guy with an average bump on my shoulder. I eat average meals, stare at the television in an average way and never tell anyone when my birthday is - unless they ask. I make average travel plans, and go to average places. Butâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what I do at those places, well, let's say I collect things. I collect cookbooks for one, like the Commander's Palace cookbook from New Orleans from which I learned how to make chicken tarragon and gumbo. Or Paula Dean's cookbook from Savannah, Georgia; or the fruity concoctions from Colorado or wholesome muffins from Vancouver's Granville Island. Oh, yes, let's not forget the skinned stewed rabbit out of a 1600s cookbook one can find at Williamsburg, Virginia. I also collect Christmas tree ornaments for the tree. If the past is prologue to the present, then perhaps it's when I broke a most cherished Christmas ornament in someone's home, I'd never been in before. An utter embarrassment for sure, though I wrote it off as my being too young, in my late teens. But then, maybe I've been trying to make up for it ever since. I have several favorite ornaments now

that, whenever I'm decorating the tree, remind me fondly of where I've been. The typical ones you may know, like the San Francisco cable car, this one signed by the artisan at Gump's, a one-of-akind store in the city. Then there's the Chinese dragon in calligraphy etched on a round, delicate ornament. Or the camera ornament that makes me think of playwright Christopher Isherwood's "I Am A Camera." Both of these are San Francisco treats as well. I'm still thrilled with the Spanish guitar decoration from the Grand Opry Hotel - a hotel as large as a compact city - in Nashville. The strings are coming off, though, so I'll have to re-string it soon. And yes, it does hang delightfully off the garland-wrapped tree, garland found in San Luis Obispo, California's Apple Farm. The Apple Farm, a little vacation stopover, is a wholesome family place, with the smell of cinnamon wafting around and through its low ceilings and American Country feel. It's as though one's in New England at holiday time. And they do have a fabulously wonderful Christmas shop. Up in Seattle there are all manner of bays, inlets and sounds, requiring ferries to ferry people 'to-and-fro' their homes on Bainbridge Island. You guessed it: a : ferry Christmas ornament, in a cute little shape, looking more like a water taxi, than a ferry. Farther away the ornaments can get a little more exotic.

from page 13 the branches and klings while staring right at you, riding up-and-down the 01 branches in a gleeful grin as you try to knock it off. The Kiwi bird from New Zealand is also an eye-catcher, because its an unusual-looking bird that has no wings. The Kiwi bird, the national bird of New fc Zealand, is said to have no wings because it had no natural predators long ago so had no reason to fly. This little ornament is _C unlikely to fly away. H There's the Waterford Crystal Santa Claus from the original glassblowers in County Waterford, Ireland. You get there by driving from Yaughal in thesouth of Ireland, where Moby Dick was filmed, to Dublin. The light-weight Santa with a suitcase is straight from Fortun and Mason in London, and features beads. But aside from Christmas ornaments from farther-off places, there are always local ornaments that are every bit as creative and warm as anything found in other cities and other places and can be good and cheap right after Christmas. There are the embroidered figure

skates hand-embroidered by a family friend, or the bear on skies - which takes up a little more space on the tree than I'm comfortable with, because it looks like it's always going to fall. There are other embroidered decorations, such as wreaths. Then there's the big wooden sled, even bigger than the bear on skies; a gingerbread house; a castle; wooden soldiers; other colorful wreath ornaments of various sizes; and lots of warm-and-fuzzy things like Santas and a squirrel bequeathed by my mother. All sorts of angels also adorn the tree in all sorts of metals and ceramics. Some wings have since flown away. Of course, there are also plenty of traditional delicate ornaments with round shapes and sparkles glued to them. These ones, however, are usually the first to fall off and break -just as the beautiful ornament I touched all those years ago fell to the floor and broke. So...I go for broke now too: I make sure to get an unusual ornament that is sturdy, hand-crafted where possible and will bring plenty of color and memory to the tree. These, as they say, are a few of my favorite things.



With the busy, year-end holiday season fast approaching, Long Island Blood Services (LIBS) is urging everyone eligible to consider giving the best gift of all this holiday season - the gift of life - with a blood or platelet donation. "A safe and adequate blood supply is essential to the health of any community," reports Dr. Benjamin Greco, LIBS medical director. "That's especially true in the holiday season as travel and the potential for accidents increases. Yet the holiday season also historically sees fewer donations and severe blood shortages. Therefore, we are asking all eligible residents on Long Island to help prevent a year-end blood shortage by giving a 'one size fits all' gift with no shopping required," he said. Eligible donors include those people at least age 16 who weigh a minimum of 110 pounds, are in good health and meet all Food and Drug Administration and NY State Department of Health donor criteria. "The reality is less than two-percent of

people in our local community donates, which is far behind the nationwide blood donor participation rate of five percvent," pointed out Dr. Greco. "We also need greater diversity within our donor base here so we can better match the very precise transfusion needs of chronically transfused patients and those with uniquely inherited blood antigen patterns," added Dr. Greco. Past and potential donors, and those who would like to host a blood drive at their job or in their community, are urged to call Long Island Blood Services at 1800-933-BLOOD, or go to to find a convenient blood drive location or donation center. People can also conveniently schedule appointments online. Long Island Blood Services, A Division of New York Blood Center, is a non-forprofit organization that collects blood from volunteer donors in Nassau^ Suffolk and Queens and distributes blood products to 50 hospitals through out this region.

Baldwin board manages complexity The proof that the Baldwin School District is a complex $99.8 million business was obvious at its November S Board of Education meeting, as evidenced by the variety of issues discussed and the scope of the recommendations that were approved. Only a few residents were present on the rainy evening to hear details of the annual audit, described by external auditor Jill Fichter as "good news." She indicated that there were "no weaknesses" in the district's entire financial process and stressed that the audit "puts the numbers together and makes sure that the controls are in place." She praised the "tone from the top" and a "staff that wants to do the right thing," along with a process mat makes sure "as many people as possible touch a transaction" to insure financial security. The required "management letter" included only a few minor recommendations. Board members, who also serve as the district's audit committee, asked questions on possible improvements, including a review of inactive classroom activity accounts. " In his comments, Superintendent of Schools Robert Britto described this year's new initiative of supportive classroom visits which are an integral part of the district's desire to improve the teaching/learning process. These lO-minute visits by administrators are not intended as an evaluation of individual teachers, but rather as an attempt to see if the strategies to improve learning are resulting in improved student output After ob

to a similar presentation by high school Principal Susan Knors last month. Objectives, strategies, new protocols, and activities, first discussed by a faculty committee headed by Deans Samuel Thompson and Craig Tupot, have .been actualized with both prevention components and more stringent disciplinary procedures in place. Particularly noted was the involvement of longtime teacher Linda Bertinetti who "brought a sense of urgency to the Rachel's Challenge project" when it was going to be postponed to focus on other objectives. That anti-violence project, which will continue next year as Rachel's Legacy, has had a significant impact on student attitudes. Also described was a new protocol for disruptive students who are dealt with immediately by the day's designated administrator-in-charge, along with a multi-team approach of enhanced oversight for an identified '-'recalcitrant cohort" which will include hand-selected schedules and selected advisory teachers. Disruptive students will receive two warnings before removal from class by security. The process will include calls and letters to parents, completion of missed work, and future detentions if the behavior continues. The educational, psychological and legal components of school discipline in today's educational climate as, explained by Mr. Brown, result in the expenditure of an enormous amount of teacher and administrative time - "a few students take up a great deal of time." Greater oversight of extra-curricular ineligibility for both academic or behavioral reasons, a four-step process to deal with suspensions and separations, the use

a feedback letter which concludes with the comment, "We wondered..." It then asks some forward-looking questions about figure student growth, providing a rather non-threatening way to tirget Seeded improvements and to advance student learning to the next level. Principal James Brown gave a detailed report on school tone and climate at the middle school which was a complement

on a "review of public speaking" are all part of the multi-pronged view of school tone and discipline. In other business, Michael Sheehan, the district director of facilities, operations and safety, provided his monthly update on the status of the bond work. Approvals for numerous specific projects in Phase HI of the bond work have been received from the State Education Department, with

Baldwin follows the national trend by Joan Delaney Baldwin voters followed national trends in casting the majority of their votes in most races for Democrats.This represents a growing trend in Baldwin which was once a solidly Republicanvoting community. According to Baldwin Republican Executive Leader Doug Diana, many new residents who have moved to Baldwin from New York City are registered Democrats and a significant number of the election districts which make up the total Baldwin community now have a majority of Democratic voters. The voting results in Baldwin were: U.S. Senate: Clinton - 5,983; Spencer 2.788 Governor: Spitzer - 6,125; Faso - 2,527 Attorney General: Cuomo- 5,063; Pirro3.375 Comptroller: Hevesi - 4,940; Callaghan - 3,099 Congress, Fourth District: McCarthy 4,725; Blessinger-2,163 .

Senator Charles Fuschillo and Assemblyman David McDonough, all Republicans, lost in Baldwin, they won, overall, in their respective districts. In races for judgeships, Baldwin voted overwhelmingly for candidates on the Democratic line. Baldwin resident Andrea Phoenix, running for the position of Second District Court judge, received .4,142 votes in Baldwin. Incumbent Judge Valerie Bullard, also a Baldwin resident, received 4,723 votes in total in Baldwin. Both were profiled in The Leader. The proposition to authorize $100 million in bonds to fund and implement an environmental program also passed in Baldwin ,as it did in the county.
