eial friends visit New Visions PROUD GRANDPAR^ITS and special people spent time with children at New Visions Elementary School. Students showed off their skills—a motivation for them to continue to do well in classroom work.

bud by Kelly George The Baldwin Board of Education met on Wednesday, March 9, to propose the budget for the 2007/2008 school year. Following the resolution of prior business, Board President Mary Jo O'Hagan turned the meeting over to Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robert J. Britto. Dr. Britto extended his thanks to all for the collaborative effort with special thanks to Assistant Superintendent for Business and Administration Services Frank Fiumano and his team for their expertise, diligence and commitment. Dr. Britto also commended all administrators whose responsibility is not only to the educational needs of the students and their teachers, but to the taxpayers in the community. Dr. Britto described the budget as well as subsequent future budgets as being not only physically predictable but stable and sustainable. Some of the needs identified within the budget that will be addressed and met within the multiyear plan are:

• Replacement of equipment, sup- , plies and classroom furniture. • Continued maintenance of the infrastructure of the schools. • Comply with new state requirements to contract with the services of an internal auditor. § • Hire an outside firm to account for 7 all district assets whose evaluation is included in the annual audit. • Respond to market conditions that result in increases in insurance premiums, retirement contributions, natural gas costs, etc. • Provide development for teachers,,,.,principals and others in the area of mathematics and literacy. • Complete the purchase of mathe-ymatics programs for grades 3-5, a,; reading library for grades K-2, the purchase of integrated algebra textbooks and graphing calculators.

Grandparents Day Beaming grandparents and "special persons" were honored guests recently at New Visions Elementary School in Freeport. However, the decorative hearts and paper flowers bestowed on them didn't disguise the event's deeper purpose: student achievement. Research consistently shows that parent and family involvement is a major contributor to children's success

in school. "There were a lot of lessons learned," says Principal Renee Crump. "Events like this help build a bridge between home and school, and children were excited about such projects as interviewing grandparents about their lives and writing reports that were shared with their classes."

Freeport trustees award contracts, write off uncollected electrical accounts

B" Q.

by Jim Golding

NEW MURAL: Students from Roosevelt High School painted a mural in a hallway at the Freeport Community Health Center as part of a community service project. Admiring the students' work were several Nassau Health Care Corporation officials who had worked with the students on this community service project: Gerald Tyson, Organizational Excellence Department at Nassau University Medical Center, Marge Maura, nurse manager, Freeport Community Health Center, Guy Courbois, vice-president of operations at the Nassau Health Care Corporation and Gerald Mondschein, MD, medical director for the Nassau Health Care Corporation Community Health Center.

Freeport trustees, in a brief meeting Monday, set a public hearing for Monday, April 23, to consider changing the classification at 81-83 South Bergen Place to Golden Age District, and referred another Golden Age District Classification application at 18-20 Smith Street to the Planning Board for review and a recommendation. The board also awarded two contracts: one for 150,000 gallons of num-

her 2 fuel oil to Hess Corporation at a price of $1.926 per gallon, for a total cost of about $288,500; and a contract to American Analytical Laboratories of Farming dale for water testing services at a cost of $5320. Trustees voted to write-off uncollectible electrical accounts amounting to $83385 for fiscal year 2004-05; and to advertise for bids for the ale of surplus vehicles and for caustic soda for the Water Department. The board adjourned to executive session after the 10-minute meeting.

The following essay by Melissa J. Byofsky of West Hempstead High School is the first-place selection of the New York Press Association's First Amendament Essay Contest.

LOVE WAS IN THE AIR ON VALENTINE'S DAY AT HEMPSTEAD TOWN HALL: Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray (center) officiates over the wedding ceremony of Carlos Garcia and the former Eva Dolores Ayala, both of Freeport, in the historic courtroom at Hempstead Town Hall. Adding to the festive atmosphere of the courtroom, flower baskets were created by J & H Florists in Uniondale and a beautiful cake was donated by Dortoni's Bakery in Levittown. The happy couples also received a special gift from Fortunoffs and long-stemmed roses from 1-800-FLOWERS and Stop and Shop.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting thefree exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances. - First Amendment, Constitution of the United States "A School environment devoid of free expression is not likely to produce in adult ready to support the sentiment attributed to Voltaire, 'I disapprove of •what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.'" - Death by Cheeseburger, from a research paper by Robert Trager and Joseph A. Russomanno. As editor-in-chief of the West Hempstead High School Rampage, our student newspaper, I often find myself torn between where a student's freedom to express opinion ends, and the school's authority to control or even suppress that expression begins. In 1969, the United States Supreme Court held that free speech does not stop "at the schoolhouse gate'' (Tinker v. Des Moines), but that gate has been steadily closing upon the student press and upon the First Amendment ever since. Under the guise of protecting student and teacher, both form and content of school newspapers have come under the guiding-and sometimes represssive - scrutiny of teacher-advisors, high school principals, and even district superintendents, some of whom exercise- in the name of "good judgment" - what amounts to blatant censorship. True, the thought of a bunch of teens running amuck with notepad in hand and pencil tucked behind ear can befrighteningto the unassuming adult particularly where that pencil might just write something untoward about a school policy, a school lunch, or a school bully - but these are the chances we take in a society that cherishes (at least in principle) freedom. While a school district cannot, for instance, publicly advocate for the passage of its own budget, should it follow that a student-run school newspaper should not postulate in favor of a "yes" vote? Moreover, can - and should the school district act to stop the publication of student-generated expression (that envisioned by the framers of the First Amendment, which places no restriction on the rights of free speech or a free press based on age or level of education) that may run counter to school district policy? I will note, more than parenthetically, that in West Hempstead.our teacheradvisor and district administration embrace a fairly liberal interpretation of students' First Amendmenfrights, a policy that is reflected in tie editorial freedom of Rampage. Could this practice change under an advisor and/or administration more concerned with preserving the district's self-interests than with the students' rights of free speech? In a heartbeat! In our search for the truth (mindful that this may be a "teen's truth," not always held by others to be sele-evident), short of the libelous or the inciting, the obscene or the labeling of editorial comment as objective reportng, students should be free to express themselves in school newspapers, without undue restraint from administrators. Granted, this may generate discord and debate, and we, as stewards of the school paper and guardians of a free press, may find ourselves at odds with school district policies and the commonly accepted order of things - that which such tender minds cannot possibly understand. Stffl,IbeKevethistoteagoodtag.FortousurptrEpoweroftestudent press - however heavily or clumsily we may, on occasion, tread - would be to stand the First Amendment's protection of free speech and a free press on its head, and undermine the very foundation of our democratic society.

iust write PARADISE VERSUS REALITY..! returned from a long-awaited vacation in Hawaii, a milestone trip marking my husband's retirement, to see headlines in local papers saying, "Trip's Tragic End." The headline summarized the very sad story of a Long Island couple whose sightseeing helicopter crashed on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. Their trip, a gift from their children for their 25th anniversary, should have been nothing by joyful. Instead, their family will be suffering through the death of their father and the critical condition of their mother. I don't pretend to know either Veronica or John O'Donnell but I imagine they began their trip with many of the same emotions as my husband and I experienced - joyful expectations, concern that bad weather would cause a cancellation, perhaps a difficult arrival trip with detours and delays, but finally reaching the island that some call "paradise." I can envision the exhilaration that they must have felt flying over untouched portions of the island that is described as "The Garden Isle." Although they are Long Islanders, they probably never saw water with as many shades of blue as they observed around Hawaii's beaches. As a reporter, one of the skills I have cultivated is that of being attentive. Whether it is driving up and down

oan dolano Grand Avenue or exploring the heights of the volcanic Haleakala Crater on Maui, I try to look beyond the superficial. On vacation, I have to remind myself to turn off the reporter button and just enter into the moment and enjoy, but that doesn't come easily. More than once during this vacation, I told my husband, "That could be a Just Write article," and I sometimes became distracted, already mentally composing how I could relate a fact or experience in a way that would be meaningful to a person who was not there. And so, the paradise of Hawaii was frequently modified by the many realities existing in our 50th state which suffers from many of the same issues and concerns as New York as well as many of its own unique issues as well. Education is problematic in a state where 85 percent of the schools do not meet federal "No Child Left Behind" benchmarks. Public transportation for locals is lacking and political debate and fighting were reported in newspaper articles about a proposed rail line, much needed, but long-delayed. The diverse heritage of the island, often romanticized behind myriad "Aloha" welcomes and "Mahalo" thank yous, camouflages centuries of history that included the import of workers from the Philippines, China, Japan and assorted other islands. Their use and abuse, combined with the take-over of the

LEGISLATIVE FORUM: The Baldwin Council of PTA's annual Legislative Forum took place on Thursday, March 1.

islands, first by business interests, then by annexation and finally through statehood still leaves anger as well as factions seeking independence. The presence of the military in so many large installations might be welcomed by some but causes an uneven distribution of funding and resources which impacts all levels of Hawaiian life. While the "reality" portion of life on the islands is one of genuine concerns, the beauty of this island paradise cannot be denied. The physical presence of so many species of flowers is breathtaking. A whale watch causes even the most jaded tourist to observe in awe as these 80,000 pound mammals make their annual 7,000 mile trek from Alaska to these warm and less predatory waters each December through March to mate

or give birth. Then, almost showing off before their human observers, they go G through their aquatic gymnastics caus- 53 Q. ing one and all to exclaim at their strength, agility, and grace. The slogan, "Save the Whales" takes on real mean- I ing once you see them. 8From newspaper coverage of the H-» tragedy which befell the O'Donnell family, it seems as if they had almost Ni completed their vacation. I expect that ^J like my husband and me, they had already seen so much of Hawaii's magnificence. Reality and Paradise - life is always a mixture of both. How clearly do certain events remind us that we must cherish those moments of joy, for often they will be needed to sustain us during the moments when reality intrudes.

Freeport/Baldwin Democrats! To The Leader: An open letter to Freeport and Baldwin Democrats: Your once proud party's national leadership has been taken over by frustrated Marxists; and they are dragging the Republican Party with them. While the Suozzi Democrats are doing a good job and the Spitzer state crowd may yet surprise on the upside, our new Congress has joined with green fanatics to paralyse our wealth and job-creating capitalism. For example: 1) manmade ozone holes. 2) acid rain. 3) oil-soaked caribou 4) spotted owls. 5) depleted rain forests. 6) cow flatulence. 7) SUVs: 8) global warming. 9) labor union worship. 10) class and race conflict, etc. The Marxists know that their control of our universities, media, and Congress controls public opinion and that public opinion controls America. Democrats: Dump those who betray out noble nation to socialists and terrorists! Alan Jay

Baldwin school budget

I

from page 1 Administrative portion, the 2007/2008 proposed budget of $11,025,880.00 shows a $363375.00 change over the $10,662,505.00 2005/2006 year for a total increase of 3.41%. Mr. Fiumano pointed out that some of the larger increases within administrative costs reflected (among other things) new state requirements for internal control auditors, advertising, insurance and BOCES fees. The $11,025,880 represents 10.4 percent of the total budget which Mr. Fiumano pointed out normally falls between 10-12 percent. The Capital portion of the proposed budget for the 2007-2008 year of $14,066,535.00 shows a $796,455.00 increase over the 2005/2006 year of $13,270,080.00 for a total increase of 6%. Noted increases came from (among other things) operations and maintenance, transportation, insurance, medical and dental and social security. Following the presentation the board moved into Executive Session. Proposals for the Educational portion of the budget will be presented at a later date.

I feel that the most pressing issues facing Freeport are: village taxes, revitalization of downtown areas, quality of life issues (train station, graffiti, dirty streets/parking lots), day worker relocation, building department proceedures, crime, and gang violence. Do you support the mayor's revitalization plan for the village? Please explain. It should be clarified that the revitalization plan of our Nautical Mile was initiated by a previous administration in 1994. However, the current administration did commit to the undertaking of construction and performed an admirable job. The Nautical Mile is now a regional highlight and is a benefit to all residents. The current administration has proposed several village revitalization projects which include the downtown facade improvement project, train station upgrades, Plaza West, and the Meadowbrook Bank building. These are admirable endeavors. However, many of these projects have been pending for years and need to be acted upon. I do not believe that the train station should be .neglected, rusted, and poorly maintained while waiting for a grant to overhaul it. Routine maintenance is not expensive and the station is vital to the downtown area. In fact, the LIRR should be responsible for routine main-

A Freeport resident for over 30 years, Jorge Martinez came to the United States from Havana, Cuba, in 1968 and settled with his family on Long Island. Jorge Martinez is president of BCM Solutions, a third party administrator dedicated to helping organizations become more efficient and effective by outsourcing their business procedures. Mr. Martinez has a long record of distinguished service to his community. He is the vice-chairman of the Freeport Zoning Board of Appeals and his prior village government service includes chairman of the Sanitation Board and commissioner of the "Human Relations Board. Jorge is the immediate past president of the Long Island Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and is a member of the board of directors, Bethpage Federal Credit Union and a member of the board of directors of the Girl Scouts of Nassau County. Dedicated to providing the youth of the community with a positive outlet, he volunteered with the Freeport PAL Sports League and Freeport Little League. His commitment to the community has led to numerous awards and recognition for his dedication and service. Some of those awards include the Molloy College St. Martin de Porres Award for Leadership; Unispa Award from Hofstra University, Hispanic Heritage Award from the Town of Hempstead, and others from Nassau and Suffolk Counties, and the Village of Freeport. He received his Bachelor's degree from Hofstra University. Jorge and his wife Christine have two children, Megan and Jorge Thomas. What are the most pressing issues facing the village? Providing our children with positive outlets such as outstanding parks and recreational facilities and the wonderful community organizations we have in Freeport are essential to keep children away from the dangers of gangs and other temptations. Freeport is blessed to have so many dedicated volunteers who devote their time to organizations like PAL, Scouting and Little League, which offer our young people activities that help build character and are fun, too. We must continue to support these worthwhile groups. Another critical

George Dewey Smalls is a native of Long Island; born and raised in the Village of Freeport and a proud graduate of the Freeport Public School System. Upon graduation from Freeport High School, he continued his education at the University of Delaware, earning a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice. During his tenure at the University of Delaware he held various leadership positions on campus, such as fraternity president (Kappa Alpha Psi), financial aid counselor, peer mediator and student/athlete on the university basketball team. He serves as special assistant to the Deputy County Executive for Economic Development, and is responsible for various economic development initiatives. Mr. Smalls's professional career includes both public and private sector 'experience, having worked as a corporate manager, a fundraiser and a consultant. He helped implement a school-towork program for Hempstead High School students in the travel and tourism industry, and assisted in creating the Hempstead High School Scholarship Fund that helped many students realize their dream of going to college. In addition, he helped students from Nassau and Queens receive engineering scholarships through the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering (NACME). He has been actively involved in politics for many years, both locally and nationally. He had the honor to work at the 1992 Democratic Convention with President Clinton, Labor Secretary Alexis Herman, and the late Commerce Secretary Ron Brown. Working under their guidance sparked his desire and commitment to give more back to his community. In keeping with that philosophy, following the tragic death of a young teenage student in a drive-by shooting in July of 2005, he founded the Freeport Neighborhood Watch and organized the first ever villagewide crime/drug prevention event to include all neighborhoods in the village for "National Night Out: America's Night Out Against Crime." Take what you need and give all that you can back is what he was taught. He continues to donate his time and service to many community organizations in Freeport, including Freeport Pride, Operation Get Ahead, Little Zion Summer Basketball League, The Officials Working Group, and the

Bill runs a successful insurance business in Freeport, the White and Re Insurance Agency, with Chris Re, another 1974 Freeport High graduate.

Bill is a member of the OverOccupancy Task Force, overseeing health and life safety of Freeport's residents and is the Village Board's liaison to the Public Works, Building, Electric, Police and Fire Departments, and the Community Development Agency. In addition to his government service, Bill has a long, distinguished record of involvement in Freeport's civic and business community. He is a longtime director of the Freeport Chamber of Commerce and has been active on a number of committees. In 2002, the Nassau County Council of Chambers of Commerce honored Bill as Freeport's "Businessperson of the Year."

In addition, he has been a member of the local Salvation Army Advisory Board and is on the Directors Advisory Council for The De La Salle School, a school for young men in grades 5 through 8. Bill resides on Freeport's waterfront with his wife Elizabeth and daughters Lauren, 15, and Jennifer, 12. What are the most pressing issues facing the village? Priority issues are continuing with our pledge to rebuild Freeport from the ground up, and the ongoing improvements all over Freeport support that promise, including revitalizing our downtown. It is also crucial to equip our great police and fire departments with

William H. White, III from page 8 the tools necessary to keep us safe. Working together with our schools, and as a community, we have many initiatives in place to educate our children about the dangers of street gangs as a means of preventing our youth from getting involved in gangs. These innovative 1 programs are highly effective and I will continue to support them. Do you support the mayor's revitalization plan for the village? Please explain. I am proud of Freeport's revitalization during my term as trustee. We have great parks, an excellent recreation center, miles of improved roads, like the recently completed Guy Lombardo Avenue, and, of course, our famed Nautical Mile. The administration has invested in Freeport's infrastructure, making major improvements to our public water supply and upgrading our village-owned electric utility to ensure a safe, low cost supply of electricity for generations to come. Our downtown revitalizing is another example of the progress we have made and I look forward to keepoo

ing that momentum going. How do you plan to control village taxes? Working with the mayor and board, we have controlled spending, which has grown at a much slower rate over the past few years, but there are items that are beyond our control, such as increased medical and insurance costs, higher fuel prices, state mandated funding requirements and other contractual obligations. Our aggressive pursuit of federal and state grants have netted us over $17 million to fund a number of public improvements such as flood mitigation, road improvements, parks and recreation upgrades, downtown revitalization and public safety, representing a significant savings for our taxpayers. I am happy to report that Congress woman McCarthy's office recently informed us that Freeport has been awarded a $600,000 grant to fund new breathing apparatus for our volunteer fire department to keep them safe while they protect our community.

George Dewey Smalls from page 8 Community Development Corporation of Long Island. A local guy who came back to return the blessings he received as a young man growing up in this village, he remembers being safe playing anywhere in the village and guided by mentors, both male and female. In accordance with the proverb "It takes a village to raise a child," George Dewey Smalls is one of those children, and he's proud and honored to be from Freeport. What are the most pressing issues facing the village? In my view, the most pressing issues are the annual tax increases and the outof-control gang activity within the

Village. Do you support the mayor's revitalization plan for the village? Please explain. I support the idea of a revitalization plan, but revitalization needs to have a more inclusive framework. The mayor has concentrated on the waterfront where he has done a great job, but other sections of the village have been neglected. We need a more holistic plan that is inclusive of all parts of Freeport. How do you plan to control village taxes? First, I will work with the mayor to find ways to reduce costs, and use my background in economic development to find new revenue streams for the village tax base.

Jorge from page 8 issue is continuing the great progress Freeport has made over the years. Do you support the mayor's revitalization plan for the village? Please explain. My family and I have lived in Freeport for over 30 years and the revitalization that has taken place is quite remarkable and must be continued if we want Freeport to be the kind of place we are all proud of. No other surrounding communities can boast the kind of progress Freeport has made. As a member of the Zoning Board of Appeals I have made sure that we continue the right type of development in our community. How do you plan to control village

taxes? Taxes continue to be a problem across Long Island, and, as we know, the village portion of our property tax bill is certainly not the largest. In order to control taxes, we must continue to fight for the village's share of the sales tax, something, by law, we are not presently entitled to. Over the years, the amount of state and federal aid has been reduced so we need to explore other ways to raise revenue, such as the aggressive pursuit of grants; something the administration has been successful in getting to help Freeport's taxpayers while continuing the levels of service we enjoy in the village.

Robert T. Kennedy from page 8 tenance and notified. To date we do not have any revitalization plans of the approximately 20 vacant buildings located in our village, especially when the village needs commercial tax revenue. Are there any real plans for a conference center/hotel? How do you plan to control village taxes? We need new venders, suppliers, and contractors to provide a more competitive bidding market for village expenses.

We need to provide tax incentives to prospective new businesses resulting in more commercial tax revenue which in turn will lower residential taxes. We must aggressively pursue investors and developers and implement partnership agreements which will put the financial burden on the investor, not the village residents. Most importantly, I can provide engi.neering oversight for the $26 million being spent annually in engineering related projects. The current administration does not have this experience.

CDBG dollars restored Federal dollars for Community Development Block Grants (CDBG) will not be cut in 2007, according to a press release issued by Senator Hillary Clinton. The 2007 federal budget had originally intended to cut $70 to $80 million, in local economic development and low incoming housing assistance programs in New York State. According to statistics from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), in Fiscal Year 2007, New York State, overall, will continue to receive funding at 2006 levels. In Nassau County, $16,053,189 will J>e made available for CDBG

funding. This represents a slight increase from 2006. Last year, Nassau received $15,875,525 in CDBG funding. The CDBG program began in 1974 and is designed to allow communities to develop affordable housing, neighborhood revitalization activities and economic opportunity, principally aimed at low and moderate income persons. In New York, CDBG empowers the cities, counties, towns and villages to provide affordable housing, social services, neighborhood revitalization and job development programs. :•---_,-•- -Laura Schofer
