Freeport trustees approve window guard law by Jim Golding Freeport trustees Monday unanimously approved an ordinance requiring window guards for dwellings in the village other than single-family homes if a child age 10 or younger resides there. Landlords and managers of multiple dwelling units have until July 1 to install the guards. However, windows that give access to fire escapes are exempted from the new law. In his presentation at the public hearing on the new ordinance during Monday's Village Board meeting. Assistant Village Attorney Stephen Malone said the standards set in the ordinance are taken "directly from the New York City ordinance." In comments from the public, Alan

Jay questioned the need for requiring window guards in Freeport and whether a danger of children falling from windows really existed. He also questioned whether window guards in the city contributed to the deaths of victims who could not escape during fires, and also warned that the cost of installing the guards would eventually lead to higher rents as landlords pass on the costs. Bruce Newbery, former village fire chief and a 25-year veteran of the FDNY, said there have been 10 incidents of children falling from windows in the city over the past two years, while Mr. Malone said the statistic for Freeport was one child injured last year after falling from an upper-story window. Mr. Jay said the statistics did not justify the window guards. "You have

to figure the pros and cons," he said, but noted their presence could pose a safety hazard in case of a fire. "People could die there," he said. "You don't hear how these children guards cause fatalities in New York City. It's completely ridiculous and unnecessary." But trustee Donald Miller replied that "it's not how many we've had, but how many we can prevent." Mr. Malone commented that "one life lost is one life too many." Mr. Jay also said he thought the requirement "will discourage future apartment construction." Deputy Mayor Renaire FriersonDavis, presiding in place of Mayor William Glacken who was absent, replied "There isn't a lot of room in Freeport for new apartments." Trustee Donald Mauersberger noted that many window guards already have been installed in Freeport and the new ordinance would establish uniform requirements. "We now have a standard for how they are put up," he said. Window guards already in place would not have to conform to the standards set by the ordinance until they

Other business Under their regular agenda, the village board approved nearly $2.7 million in municipal bonds for various improvements and tax certiorari payments, consisting of $1 million for o> replacement of electric system components, $1 million for the certiorari payments and $675,000 for the purchase of firefighting vehicles and equipment. The Fire Department also received a $2.5 million grant from New York State for an automatic cardiac defibrillator. In other actions, the board authorized advertising for bids for several improvements and items of equipment, including the South Ocean Avenue and Southside Avenue Road Improvement project. Trustees adjourned to executive session following the public hearing.

Treat passengers like people. not prisoners The Valentine's Day istorra that left so many airplane passengers stranded also made some of them prisoners. They were kept inside planes out on the tarmac for many hours, without food, water, clean restrooms and even more unsettling, information about what was going on. Something similar happened to Long Island Rail Road passengers recently, causing some of them to jump off the trains, which in turn meant the trains were delayed from starting again. Local commuters do have choices. They can elect to move closer to their work, or to take their cars instead of mass transit. Drivers may not get there any faster when stuck in traffic jams, but at least they feel more in control. If New York wants people to use mass transit, then we should make sure they are treated like customers, not prisoners. Airplane passengers have fewer choices. Although the new morality urges us to reduce our "carbon footprints" on this fragile earth and stop global warming by avoiding airplane travel as much as possible, most people don't have the time or the money to take long trips using other kinds of transportation. Security precautions mean long lines and delays, and having to take off shoes, belts and outer garments to pass through. This makes the experience just too exhausting and unsettling for many older passengers. Long flight delays make a bad situation even worse. It is a shame that the federal government should have to legislate common decency in the treatment of passengers and crew. But the situation may have come to that point. Generally speaking, the airline industry pulls off logistical miracles every day even when the weather is fine. Yet that is still not good enough. People who are treated badly by an airline will not use it again, if they can help it.

lust write LEAVE IT TO BEAVER.. My younger neighbor says that our small street reminds her of the "Leave it to Beaver" television show from the 1950s. The tiny dead end block, which Realtors would probably call a charming cul de sac, has only 13 homes. There are a few tudors, some capes, several Victorians with wrap around porches and one newer hi-rise house. It's not the variety of architecture, however, which is reminiscent of a fifties neighborhood but rather the variety of people. From the time our family moved in back in 1969, and even before that, there has always been a mix of older homeowners and young manieds. Some time ago, I thought of our block at a community meeting when a first Precinct policeman noted that the best safety device for an area wasn't any particular alarm system but rather aretiredman. Throughout my 38 years on this block, there has always been at least one such gentleman. Hardly a utility repairman or home improvement worker can set foot on the street without one of the retirees checking out things. "What are you doing? How are you doing it? And here's my suggestions." The range in age among the women is also significant. Young moms, more working today, and older moms and grandmas provide an interesting balance. Throughout the decades, the children of our block know that it isn't only their own moms and dads who are looking out for them, but everyone else as well. When the kids set up various jumps and obstacles for their skateboards, on-line skates or bikes, they know that someone is going to say "Be careful." One and all accept such advice with equilibrium.

seeming to understand that the need to offer such words of wisdom is coded into our maternal DNA. Another feature of this small block is that it has always had a baby in residence. The street appears to promote fertility. One family moved in with a beautiful adopted baby girl. They subsequently produced three biological children. Today, our newest baby is the child of our Pakistani family. The by-product of this ever-evolving reproduction cycle is that all the moms have the opportunity to tell their pregnancy, childbirth and child-rearing stories to an eager audience, and somehow, all the kids on the block seem to understand that a brand new baby is a cause for celebration. At one point, back in the 1980s, when the Baldwin School District was thinking of realigning the boundaries of the individual neighborhood schools, the assistant superintendent of schools who was in charge of that endeavor mentioned to me that the statistics were working out fine until they got to "one block in Milbum. It has 22 children," a number that threw off their projections. "Thar would be my block," I told him, laughing. I think that all of those children over the years is what gives our little neighborhood within a neighborhood its distinction. Everyone stays young because everyone is an observer of the newest trends and activities. As we watch our own and everyone else's kids grow up, we also realize that life is a very inexact science. It's hard to predict. Who could have expected that the kid who was always getting himself into trouble would ijjj^ solici-

tous of caregivers to his elderly modier. And 'who could have believed that the young man who seemed to provoke such angst among property owners would turn out to be the most responsible employee in his family's locally-owned business. I often wonder if he remembers that when we had our sidewalk replaced we "hired" him to be the lookout and protector until it dried with a hope that the fox guarding the henhouse would result in a sidewalk without graffiti. How pleased we were to see him stand guard and make sure that our cement dried without any imperfections. Another young man who is now a wellknown lawyer in the area showed his potential one hot summer day when he set up his own lemonade stand. As I trudged home from the library, panting with thirst, he called to me across the street, "Lemonade, five cents." I called to him, "Great, I'm dying of thirst." He responded, "Lemonade, ten cents." Our "Leave it to Beaver" description shouldn't be understood to mean that we are living in the past. The changes are there, subtle but steady. There are more moms working and those who are home always seem to be on carpooling patrol. Gone are the bi-monthly lunches that the moms enjoyed, a wonderful occasion for women of all ages to bond together on a block where people cared, but weren't always in each other's kitchens. Kids play differently as well. Years ago, the clickety-click of hot wheels, accessorized with playing cards attached to the wheels, produced a clatter by 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning. Today, kids are either asleep, in front of TVs or computers or being driven to Saturday practices because the block is silent until much later'in-the •—•.^•-.^^^^^i- —• ^^^^^^^^^^ --•

And the nationalities have changed. Just like decades ago, everyone is the child or § Q. grandchild of immigrants but the countries of origin have expanded. Today we have a Latino family and a neighbor from Pakistan. One of the homes has become a rental, a situation which is a concern to everyone until we see the new family and to discern whether or not they are quiet, mow the lawn and shovel the snow. H Our little block continues on - the two CD little boys of a decade ago are now teens, driving their family's car. The 22 children Qwho prevented a school district boundary ft> change are now all grown up, and most are parents themselves. All of the original retirees have died but there are three more to take their place. There's always someone to ask for help but the interaction seems to be more of quick waves and shorter conversations. The leisurely lunches are a thing of the past. But the dads still come home at regular times and the front doors close as everyone sits down to dinner. As, my neighbor from Pakistan said to the new mother in her home, "I told her, this is a good block. Everyone stays married and they, take care of their children." It's "Leave it To Beaver" in our tiny microcosm of society and as die decades go by we learn over and over again that love, friendship and a sense of neighborhood need nourishing; it really does take a village to raise a child; no one does it alone, and, as we welcome and embrace each new person and family, we participate in life's journey together. That is community on our little street and on the many blocks and neighborhoods of our 'town.- ;'~ '" : " !""•" ~ ' '"•*' • -•' :' - : "

police news Police reports come from law enforcement agencies. Suspects are presumed innocent unless and until convicted in court. The First Squad reports the arrests of three youths in connection with a burglary that occurred in Freeport on Tuesday night, February 20. At about 9:20 p.m. numerous Freeport police units responded to a 911 call for a "burglary in progress" on Harrison Avenue. The suspects gained entry (to the unoccupied house) by pushing a window air conditioner through a kitchen window, located in the rear of the house. They entered and exited the premises via that window. Although the suspects caused minor damage

while ransacking the house, the only property taken was a set of keys to a 1989 Toyota, which was parked in the driveway. A 16-year-old resident of West Merrick Road, Freeport, and a 16-yearold resident of Grand Avenue Freeport were both found hiding in the rear yard of the residence and A 17-year-old resident of Harrison Avenue, Freeport, was found hiding in the 1989 Toyota (which was parked in the driveway).

Freeport's library is a 'Library of Distinction' Freeport Memorial Library was chosen as a "Library of Distinction" in the new book "Heart of the Community, The Libraries We Love." the first book to sing the praises and show the beauty of America's beloved public libraries. Library reference publisher Berkshire Publishing Group spent four months searching for libraries that are the cherished centers of their communities. The key selection criteria were: the library is of historical significance; the library is associated with an important event; the library is associated with an important person; the library is distinguished by its architectural design; and the library is of special significance to its community. Freeport Memorial Library was established in 1884 by Professor Loren M. Burdick, principal of the Freeport Schools, with funds raised by amateur entertainment. For a while, the books were kept in the clothes closet of the principal's office in the Grove Street School. In 1899, the Board of Regents of New York State granted a permanent

charter. This charter was signed by Melvil Dewey, founder of the American Library Association and creator of the Dewey Decimal Classification system. In 1920, Assemblyman Theodore Roosevelt (the eldest son of President Theodore Roosevelt and a founder of the American Legion) sent a $20 donation to be used for the establishment of a permanent library building. On Memorial Day in 1924, the Freeport Memorial Library was dedicated as the first war memorial library in New York State. Today the Freeport Memorial Library is the second largest public library facility in Nassau County. More information about the history of the library, can be found on the library's Web page: wwwjiassaulibrary.org/ freeport The Freeport Memorial Library is located at 144 West Merrick Road, between South Ocean Avenue and South Bergen Place, and is accessible to persons with disabilities.

Police update Baldwin Chamber by Joan Ddaney Law enforcement must respond to changes in crime patterns in each community. At the February 20, Chamber of Commerce meeting held at Sonny's Canal House Restaurant, First Precinct Police Officer Ed Knox, a member of the Problem Oriented Policing (POP) detail, outlined recent situations in Baldwin. A "sting-operation" is scheduled for the train station since there has been an increase in auto thefts and break-ins in Baldwin as well as other stations, including Merrick. The First Precinct police, in cooperation with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) intend to concentrate oversight in the area. Officer Knox also spoke about an increase in robberies, warning residents, business owners and shoppers to keep valuables out of sight. He told Chamber members to keep on lights, play a radio, and remove valuables from easy access. He said that shoppers should be cautioned to hold onto pocketbooks, especially not to leave them on shopping carts. All valuables in a car should be placed in the trunk and not in plain sight. Responding to a question concerning gangs. Officer Knox said, "I won't say there aren't any," but like many police officers before him, did not describe gang activity in Baldwin as either large or growing. Speaking of the recent traffic-related fatalities in Baldwin (three in a nine day period), he focused on the hit/ran that occurred in front of the main Baldwin Post Office. Massapequa resident Maryanne Jeger, 62, who was crossing Grand Avenue eastbound (near Sunrise Highway) was hit be an unknown vehicle which continued southbound on Grand Avenue. Crime Stoppers has offered a reward of $2000 tor information leading to the arrest of the perpetrator. Anyone with any information is asked to call 1-800-244 TIPS. Presently, there is an illuminated sign in

front of the post office publicizing the incident and asking for assistance. Officer Knox said that there are no credible leads and that "not much has come forward/' Regarding the status of the*Tirst Precinct. Officer Knox said that there are rumors regarding its re-location to the Antique House site, but no resolution. Regarding the feelings of the police on the need for a new facility, he said, "We know we need it." (In a previous interview with The Leader, (February 22), LuAnn Lima, an aide to County Legislator Joseph Scannell, indicated that negotiations continue with die owner of the Antique House. A new precinct behind the existing building is also a possibility.) Chamber members questioned the increase of graffiti in the area, particularly north on Grand Avenue behind stores which back onto the St. Luke's Place parking lot. Officer Knox pointed out that arrests cannot be made unless the police see the crime. However, he noted that "field interviews" take place and are placed on a data base. "Then if the same kids are found in other situations, we have something to go on." The same sort of debriefing takes place when there are gang arrests. Officer Knox noted that the Gang Intelligence Squad conducts intensive questioning to expand their knowledge of gang activity.

Chamber Plans The Chamber's annual pancake breakfast will take place at Baldwin Middle School on Saturday, March 24, from 10 a.m. until noon. The cost is $2 per person for a breakfast of pancakes, bacon, juice, donuts, bagels, coffee or tea. There^are pony rides, Easter^ggjy, and raffle prizes along witff the alwaysawaited Easter bunny. All are invited to this event sponsored by the Chamber with additional funding by specific Baldwin businesses. Co-Presidents Doris Duffy arid Ginny Fotey provided updates on the recent meet-

BHS student on advisory panel Stephanie Letzler, a senior at Baldwin High School, recently met with Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) in his district office for a meeting of his student advisory panel. Senator Fuschillo's student advisory panel is a group of high school students that meets with Senator Fuschillo several times a year to discuss some of the important issues facing the state. The panel is composed of students from high schools within Senator Fuschillo's

district. During the meeting, the students debated the merits of changing the driving age, raising the smoking age, and what new incentives could be created to encourage people to use alternative energy sources, such as solar power. "It is great to see young people take an active role in their government by discussing issues and offering their ideas," said Senator Fuschillo. "I look forward to hearing more of the students' ideas at the next meeting."

ing conducted by Councilman Anthony Santino on the five acre revitalization at Grand Avenue and Merrick Road. (See The Leader, February 22). Jn other comments regarding the mid-Baldwin shopping center and its empty stores, it was noted that despite efforts by the Chamber to bring interested tenants, the owner remains "uninterested and uncooperative." Ms. Duffy noted that the Chamber "is happy to assist any landlord in town" and Ms. Foley said, "The shopping center is an eyesore and we know it." Janice Preisz, the president of the Lions Club of Baldwin, gave a presentation on her group which, she said, almost gave up its charter because of a scarcity of members. The club is looking for new members and is actively preparing additional fundraisers so that it may continue its work. This spring and summer it will expand its arts and crafts fairs at the LJRR station.

The primary focus of the Lions Club relates to sight-related concerns, the result of a connection years ago with Helen Keller who sought out the Lions organization. Today, the club continues those works, expanding its help to include eye problems connected with diabetes. Ms. K Preisz said that anyone who needs glasses or help regarding sight diseases should contact the Lions. Club members visit local hospitals at Christmas and bring each patient a poinset- H tia plant. On Valentine's Day, they bring tr (D roses. Additionally the Lions Club provides scholarships to Baldwin's high school seniors at the school's annual awards ceremony. Those interested in joining the Lions may call Ms. Preisz at 608-1553. Meetings are at the China Buffet on Grand Avenue at 7 p jn. on the first and third Tuesday of the month.

McCarthy: Hospital funding slashed under Bush budget Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (NY-4) held a press conference along with Kenneth Raske, president of the Greater New York Hospital Association, Kevin Dahill, Executive Vice President of the Healthcare Association of New York State as well as the CEO/President of the Nassau/Suffolk Hospital Council, John O'Connell, president/CEO of the Health and Welfare Council of LI as well as representatives from area hospitals to discuss "the devastating impact" of President Bush's budget on hospitals on Long island and throughout New York State. Under President Bush's budget request, Long Island hospitals will lose over $531 million in Medicare and Medicaid funding over the next five years. New York State is set to lose over $73 billion in the same period. "These cuts will devastate the healthcare system in New York." said McCarthy. "At a time when costs are skyrocketing and the number of uninsured is rising, the healthcare system deserves more attention and funding. The President has made a terrible mistake in his budget request." The proposed budget cuts will force hospitals to cut sen-ices and will make healthcare less accessible for Long Island residents, she added. According to Kevin Dahill, Executive Vice President of the Healthcare Association of New York State as well as the CEO/President of the Nassau/Suffolk Hospital Council. "Our hospitals simply cannot survive them and will be forced to close programs and eliminate sendees that Long Islanders depend upon. Administrators at each of Long Island's 24 not-for-profit and pub-

lic hospitals will have to make tough decisions about what stays and what goes, as well as what staff reductions will be needed." New York's 25 million uninsured will find it hard to purchase health insurance under the President's budget, said Mrs. McCarthy. "President Bush proposes to drastically reduce Medicaid, Medicare and the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). These changes will increase the number of the nation's uninsured." said Jack O'Connell of the Health and Welfare Council of Long Island. "It is tragically embarrassing that the President would propose to address one of the nation's most pressing domestic problems by ensuring greater access to health care for the most healthy and wealthy and restricting access to the nation's hard working families who have no alternatives," he added. The cuts will have an equally devastating effect across New York State, said Mrs. McCarthy. "President Bush's proposed Medicare and Medicaid cuts would severely harm New York's teaching and community hospitals," said Greater New York Hospital Association president Kenneth E. Raske. "These cuts will slash institutions that are already struggling financially, and could adversely impact patient care." Congress will have an opportunity to restore funding during the budget process. According to Mrs. McCarthy, "I will do everything in my power to fund our hospitals and ensure patients on Long Island and across the state have access to quality medical care. These cuts simply cannot go though."

WATCHING THE GAP: Senator Charles Fuschillo (right) listens to testimony during the public hearing on the LIRR gap problem. He is joined by Assemblyman Dave McDonough.

Fuschillo, McDonough mind the gap Charles Fuschillo of Merrick, acting chairman of the state Senate Transportation Committee, held a public hearing recently at Syosset High School to examine the problem of gap size (space between the platform and the train) at LIRR stations, a gap which ultimately cost the life of 17-year-old Natalie Smead last June, the niece of a Merrick resident. Senator Fuschillo, Jr, (8th SD) remarked in a statement that "We can't wait for another tragedy before finding a solution to this problem, and the MTA needs to move as quickly as possible to ensure the safety of Long Island Rail Road passengers. "Thif'tearing ~ allowed us to hear from officials why this issue has not yet been resolved,what steps they have already taken, and see what other options exist, so that we can continue moving forward in getting this problem corrected." Metropolitan Transportation Authority Chairman Elliot Sander, LIRR Acting President Raymond Kenny and Metro-North Railroad President Peter Cannito all testified about the corrective action plan that is currently undenvay to improve safetyconditions and reduce the number of gap-related accidents. Engineers who worked on the "gap-filler project" for the New York City subway system offered testimony about what steps could be taken to reduce the gap size at Long Island Rail Road stations. Ellyn Shannon of the LIRR Commuter Council also offered testimony. Susan McGowan, spokesperon for the LIRR, spoke with The Leader about the advances the railroad has made and continues to make in closing the gap. Three solutions "There are three solutions we are in the process of implementing," she said, and involve several stations. One solution, she said, is track shifting, which involves actually shifting the track closer to the platform. "A TC82 car equipped with sonar rolls along the track and measures where we can indeed align the tracks closer to the platform without causing any problems." Some 71,000 feet of track has so far been shifted at 24 platforms at 16 stations, she said.

She noted that there has to be some gap between the trains and platform so that the trains can pass safely through the station. Another solution is to shift the platform closer to the tracks. While many platforms are one solid piece, still other platforms are constructed partly of slabs, which can be moved closer to the tracks, significantly narrowing the gap. Over 7,000 feet of platform slabs at 16 platforms at 12 stations have been moved closer to the tracks, she continued. "The Babylon branch is in fairly good shape as far as proper track alignment and narrower gaps," she said. She said that still another solution is the edge board, or "sacrifical edge" board. This solution involves a board attached to the edge of the platform, which can be broken off (sacrificed) if the train comes in too close to it. 5,300 feet of edge board on nine platforms at seven stations have been added, Ms. McGowan said. She said that over the years the railroad has also been implementing announcements on • trains minding people to "watch the gap" as they get on and off the train. She said it will step up this educational campaign in the face of recent accidents over gaps, even though most accidents that happen on the trains are due to slips, trips and falls. Merrick resident Judy Heefher, whose niece, Natalie Smead, was killed by a LIRR train after falling through the gap at the Woodside train station, also spoke to the committee at the hearing. Senator Fuschillo was joined at the hearing by Senator Dean Skelos (9th Senate District), Senator Carl Marcellino (5th Senate District), Senator John Sabini (13th Senate District), and Assemblyman Dave McDonough (19th Assembly District). Ms. McGowan also told The Leader that the Federal Railroad Administration would begin meetings mid-week to discuss customer accidents throughout the rail system, and would focus for the first time on the gap issue. Ms. McGowan said she is pleased that public officials in the transportation sector such as Senator Fuschillo and Assemblyman McDonough are interested in learning more about gap reductions taking place on the LIRR. - Douglas Finlay


Mllburn's in motion!

o 1

Milburn School kicked off the new year with the theme "Milburn in Motion" and the goal of promoting health, wellness and physical activity in a variety of interesting activities. In the first weeks of January, students in grades 3-5 created artwork related to bodies in motion, which were on display at Synergy Gym in Baldwin. Also at Synergy Gym in a four-week program in January and February under the direction of physical education teacher Adam Hananel, Milburn students from kindergarten "S through fifth grade participated in cardio-kickboxing classes with a Synergy instructor while their parents were able try out the gym facilities. The idea of family fitness, even during the cold winter months, was reinforced. Meanwhile, about 30 Milburn parents made committments to increasing their physical activity, making healthier eating choices and setting a positive example for their children. Together, they pledged to lose 500 pounds. The three biggest losers will win money for new clothes and a package of pampering, courtesy of community sponsors. This month, Milburn incorporated their health-consciousness in the Parents as Reading Partners program (PARP). After a performance by children's health entertainer Slim Goodbody, the students spent a couple of weeks "exercising their minds" with some good books and tracked their minutes read per class in the main lobby. More "Milburn in Motion" is still scheduled ahead! During March, Milburn will challenge its students and staff as well as district administrators to take 10,000 steps a day for two weeks, monitored by pedometers. In April, Milburn will begin a spring cleaning community project to prepare for the Grandest Garage Sale in Baldwin! Milburn in Motion will wrap up in May with the students marching in the Memorial Day Parade and showing off their new band uniforms.
