Freeport Celebrates Homecoming 2012 Hundreds of family members, friends and community residents, dressed in red, came out to the new turf field at Freeport High School to show their support for the Red Devils, displaying school pride and community togetherness at the annual homecoming. Prior to the game, many of the Freeport school PTAs and school district fundraising groups sold food items, school spirit apparel and crafts to those in attendance.

Officer Training Corps (JROTC) led the parade, which included the marching band, Homecoming court and cheerleading squad, from the front of the school out to the field. The cheerleaders took their place near the end zone and got the crowd on their feet when they stretched out a huge Freeport banner that the Red Devils broke through as they ran out onto the field. The Freeport Red Devils Marching Band played the national anthem as the JROTC presented the flag at the 50-yard line. In a close game, the Red Devils fell to Syosset by a narrow final score of 16-13.

A dose of civility at Freeport Village Board by Linda Delmonico Prussen One of the last speakers stepping up to the podium Monday night, George Brown, implored Freeport residents to stick together. He said, “Encourage people, don’t discourage.” His message echoed back to the mayor’s opening statement asking residents to be respectful of those speaking during public comment. And unlike meetings in the past the tone of respect was set and maintained by those at the dais. Most of the agenda items passed seamlessly without discourse.

A home for the American Legion

Fall Festival

Approved was the purchase lease agreement with the American Legion William Clinton Story Post 342 for the property on 925 South Ocean Avenue for a term of 25 years. Originally proposed for 99 years, Trustee Robert Kennedy, a Vietnam veteran, said he was glad to have the additional time to review the contract and change some of the terms. Mayor Andrew Hardwick, also a veteran and a member of the American Legion, was also pleased the lease purchase agreement was approved.

Also approved were the Nautical Mile Family Fall Festival and Chowder Contest October 20 and 21. The festival will include the Annual Fire Expo on October 21, as well as the Halloween Fall Festival and Parade on Sunday, October 21, between 1 and 2 p.m. with assembly time at noon at Front Street and Woodcleft Avenue. Mayor Hardwick said the focus of this year’s fall festival will be on family. It will be during the daytime hours of noon and 6 p.m. and the many themed events will be appropriate for children. He added the he hoped residents would see, “The Nautical

Mile does not go to sleep after Labor Day.”

Eagle Scouts A bright spot early on in the meeting occurred when two young men, Alexander Lewis and Aaron Johnson, approached the mike. They explained that they were going for their Eagle Scout award and asked about community service they could perform for the village. They were quickly greeted by Superintendent of Public Works Scott Richardson who said he could most definitely find an appropriate project to meet their requirements. continued on page 3

by Mark Treske A large crowd gathered at Atkinson school last week for the Freeport Board of Education action meeting, as the evening was dedicated to Debra McQuillan, who resigned from the school board for health reasons in June. Mrs. McQuillan, accompanied to the meeting by her family and parents, received a plaque from the board, whose members voiced their appreciation of her service. Board President Debra Mulé praised Mrs. McQuillan for making “an important impact on the community.” Board Trustee Ron Ellerbe noted that Mrs. McQuillan “changed the culture of the board,” and more than one speaker was thankful for her insistence on civility and good manners at board meetings on the part of the board and the community. Trustee Mike Pomerico praised her as “a true advocate for the children,” and Vice-President Vilma Lancaster hoped to

impart what she had taught to Anthony Miller, the newest trustee. Superintendent Dr. Kishore Kuncham described her as “a gift to inspiring leader.” Tributes came in from the community: From Melvin Harris, representing County Executive Edward P. Mangano, and county Legislator David Denenberg. State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo Jr., state Assemblyman Dave McDonough and town Councilwoman Angie Cullin sent citations. Community luminaries mounted the podium to offer their thanks as well: Freeport Teachers Association President Stuart Napear offered thanks for Mrs. McQuillan’s leadership, and past and present PTA Council Presidents Sue Lyons, Ellen Frey and Sonia Dixon offered flowers. Another former PTA Council president, Pat Lewis, summed up everyone’s feeling succinctly, saying “You inspired me.”

Freeport students achieve District Science Coordinator Vincent Pereira introduced three Dodd Middle School students who spent part of the summer studying astronomy at the California Institute of Technology. Atkinson school dual language students students performed a singing and speaking presentation significant Hispanic-Americans, a preview of a Hispanic Heritage performance that will be given in October.

In other matters The board approved agreements with three consultants, including Carol Masin for Fundations training for the Magnet Schools and Long Island Traditions to give maritime workshops for students at Archer. Superintendent Dr. Kishore Kuncham and Assistant Superintendents Drs. Mary Bediako and Wafa Westervelt were certified as qualified lead evaluators of building principals, and a lengthy list of administrators and teachers were certified

qualified lead evaluators/evaluators of teachers, as the state-mandated teacher/administrator evaluations will start this year. The contract for universal prekindergarten services with St. Joseph’s College has been extended for the 2012-13 school year. A Dodd student, unhappy about lugging backpacks, instruments etc. to and from school, asked about the promised new lockers. District Director of Business James Robinson apologized for the delay, explaining the project needed more lead time, and the district needed to make sure lockers were properly installed and combinations properly calibrated. He noted that first-floor lockers are now installed, and that second-floor lockers will be finished very soon, and that arrangements had been made to allow for storage of instruments and other heavy items. The board will next meet on Wednesday, October 10, at 7:30 p.m. at Atkinson School.

Firehouse repairs A resolution was passed for the issuance of $400,000 in serial bonds to finance the cost of rehabilitation, renovation and improvement of the fire department buildings and facilities, but not without question by a resident. She questioned why this expenditure was not budgeted and money set aside. Village Attorney Howard E. Colton said it would be too much money to set aside in reserve for these repairs. While the reason for bonding major long-term expenses has been explained at meetings to residents before, Trustee Kennedy patiently did so again. He said paying for major structural renovations, like new roofs that may last 15-20 years, over a longer period of time spreads the cost out. In this way not only current residents, who may move at one point or another, are burdened with entire expense, but it is also paid for by future residents who will benefit from the spending.

Street repairs Two residents asked about repairs being done on Nassau Avenue and when the project would continue south past Suffolk Street. While the board and the mayor could not offer a timetable as the repairs continue, Mayor Hardwick did say, “We’re not neglecting Nassau Avenue, we know it has to be done in its entirety.”

VP visit revisited A tense moment ensued when a resident of Salvadorean descent said she took offence at the comments directed at Salvadorean Vice President Sanchez

Ceren regarding his recent visit to Freeport. She accused those making comments of only “Googling” to get information on the foreign leader. Trustee Carmen Pineyro, whose husband she said is of Salvadorean descent, assured the resident this was not the case. Ms. Pineyro said her husband’s family suffered at the hands of the political group lead by Ceren, with some members of her husband’s family perishing during the civil war. Ms. Pineyro said she often visits El Salvador and has witnessed atrocities firsthand, as well as having an extensive academic background in the politics of Latin-American countries. Deputy Mayor Jorge Martinez also stood by his comments regarding Mr. Ceren. He said to the resident, “I respect your comments, as naive as they may be. The comments I made were directed at the vice president and the mayor of this community.” Forensic audit absent from agenda Noticeably absent from the agenda was the item asking for a Request for Proposals (RFP) for a forensic audit: Perhaps gone from the agenda, but not forgotten. Resident Edward Walker asked, “What are the logistical reasons we do not have a forensic audit? What are the things that stand in the way of that being done?” The mayor said the only thing standing in the way of the item, currently “tabled ” or on hold, is a majority vote. He said, “I have not been able to convince the board.” The Board of Trustees declined to respond.

Fray said he still has family in Freeport and would love to live there as well, but can no longer afford it and has since moved to Elmont. He asked the board about moves towards more affordable housing for working people, and a more centrally located, and free community center for children. He said a community center, similar to one he attended growing up in Hempstead, where kids can go after school to get help with homework and play sports like basketball, would be a tremendous help to parents struggling to afford babysitters. Mayor Hardwick said these are issues the board tries to address. One resident brought up what he claims are issues of fraudulent tax-free properties in Freeport. He brought a list

of properties he believes are fraudulently tax-free for the trustees to investigate. A resident inquired about various crime statistics and what could be done to prevent crime. Mayor Hardwick encouraged anyone who sees suspicious behavior to call the police with anonymous tips. He said, “You don’t have to put yourself in harm’s way. We don’t have to know who you are.” He also suggested those who are able could get video surveillance. A resident inquired about the docking space for the Freeport Water Taxi. Village Attorney Howard E. Colton said the owners of the water taxi were advised they must dock at Sea Breeze Park and not at the esplanade. Absent from the meeting was Trustee William White.

The community newspaper - the glue that helps hold a community together, and the spur that helps keep it moving forward.

‘Landstrike’ Former publisher of the Chelsea-Clinton News Robert Trentlyon once told fellow New York community publishers it is easy to get out in front of a crowd of citizens who are protesting something and help them win the battle. It is not so easy to lead a group of citizens who want to build something. But he somehow managed in a decades-long effort to help get the Chelsea Pier park built and provide a recreation area for his neighborhood. Now the indefatigable retired publisher is setting his sights on protecting his beloved city in the case of a hurricane hitting Manhattan head on, as Hurricane Irene almost did a year ago. He notes the subways came within a foot of being flooded, which would have caused incalculable damage from salt water, especially since some older parts are no longer made. Congressman Jerry Nadler, who represents waterfront areas in Brooklyn and Manhattan, recently wrote to the Mayor’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability about the need to study ways to protect the city from flooding, including storm surge barriers. Mr. Trentlyon explains that these walls would be constructed under the Verrazano Bridge, and at other points leading to Manhattan and lifted in case of need. The cost would be high but nothing compared to the damage a major hurricane could wreak. Our readers should be interested because even if the hurricane skipped our shores, we would suffer collateral damage from one that hits Manhattan, especially the financial district. Sometimes fiction can be more powerful than facts. “Landstrike,” a novel by Ken Bass, published in 2009, predicts what would happen if a major hurricane hit the Big Apple. He wrote it to “raise awareness and spark debate.” Residents of Seaford will find the description of their beloved hometown as “picturesque waterfront” and having a “quaint business district” with the “feel of Main Street, USA” endearing. But then they will be riveted by the story of how members of a small Lutheran Church rode out a fictional hurricane catastrophe. It will not be comforting to hear at least 50,000 people moved out of Nassau County after that hurricane, which caused billions of dollars in flood damage, plummeting housing and property values and high unemployment rates. Eyewitnesses to the 1938 hurricane, which emptied the Great South Bay and then filled it with floating houses from Fire Island, can tell you that it could happen here, because it did. When our ex-publisher friend started reading “Landstrike,” he could not put it down. It should also be sobering reading for our readers and their elected officials.

CONSUL GENERAL: The Village of Freeport hosted a “meet and greet” reception at Village Hall to introduce Herman G. LaMont, the new consul general of Jamaica based in New York City. Town of Hempstead Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby congratulated Mayor Andrew Hardwick, Freeport trustees and Village Justice Stephen Drummond for providing this opportunity for members of the Freeport community to meet Mr. LaMont. The councilwoman also presented a Certificate of Recognition to the new consul general. From left are Ray Thomas, director, Trustee Carmen Piñeyro, Councilwoman Dorothy Goosby, Consul General LaMont, Mayor Hardwick and Trustee Robert Kennedy.

FIGHT PROSTATE CANCER: Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (RMerrick) recently partnered with South Nassau Communities Hospital in sponsoring a free Prostate Cancer screening program at the Freepor t Recreation Center. Nearly 100 men participated in the screening program and received a PSA blood test. Prostate Cancer is the second most common cancer in men, with approximately one in six men being diagnosed with it in their lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. Men who were unable to participate in the screening program but would like additional information about upcoming prostate screening programs can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 882-0630.

by Krista Giannak “One town, one tax rate” is the slogan used by Laura Mallay, executive director of Residents for Efficient Special Districts (ResD) in her fight to dissolve special Sanitary District 2, headquartered in Baldwin. ResD partnered with the Long Island Progressive Coalition (LIPC) to acquire over 5,000 signatures on a petition advocating a referendum for the district’s dissolution, set for Wednesday, December 12. Yet, allegations of possible fraud threaten to stop the vote. Sanitary District 2 serves Baldwin, Roosevelt and South Hempstead, as well as sections of Uniondale, Rockville Centre and Freeport, according to the district’s website. An independent Grand Avenue office of about 80 employees serves the refuse removal needs of a population of approximately 55,000, according to the site and Douglas Wiedmann, secretary to the Board. Two lawsuits are before the Nassau County Supreme Court relating to the referendum. In Cabram V. Bonilla, district resident Patricia Cabram submitted over 200 affidavits from people saying that they were “misinformed” and “duped” into signing the petition, according to Ken Gray, an attorney representing the district. Ms. Cabram also said she was misled into signing the petition, believing it was in favor of the district, Mr. Gray said. Ms. Cabram argued that there was fraud in obtaining the signatures and that a number of the signatures are not valid. Statute requires that all signers of a petition such as this must be district residents who are registered to vote, Mr. Gray explained. Ms. Cabram wants the Nassau Board of Elections to validate the signatures, Mr. Gray said. Ms. Mallay said the petition was “very self-explanatory.” “We were clear that we want to do away with Sani2 and have the Town of Hempstead pick up our garbage because they charge less,” added fellow ResD member Mark Goldstein. Ms. Mallay also said that some signers were pressured by district workers to sign the affidavits, and some felt their privacy was violated. “[Signers] did not expect copies to be disseminated to people who worked in the district,” she said. The September 11 ruling in Cabram V. Bonilla by the Second Judicial Department of the Appellate Division of the New York State Supreme Court upheld the current referendum date. New York State Supreme Court Judge Michele Woodard will decide the case, and all papers filed for and against will be officially submitted on Friday for the court’s consideration, Mr. Gray said. In Long Island Progressive Coalition, et al. v. Cools, the LIPC argued that the New York State Constitution prohibits governmental entities, including the commissioners, from using taxpayer funds for political purposes. Therefore, the district should be barred from using these funds to oppose the referendum, said Ken Gartner, an attorney representing the referendum’s proponents. Mr. Gray said that this argument is an attempt to “silence the commissioners” and spoke of their

“obligation to notify constituents.” “All [the law] stops [the commissioners] from doing is having the taxpayers pay for their speech,” Mr. Gartner said. All parties await the decision of New York State Supreme Court Judge Antonio Brandveen. The tax rate for a Class 1 property, which is generally a one-family house in Sanitary District 2, is $65.609, according to the Nassau County Department of Assessment. To compare tax rates, the LIPC used a home value of $400,000 and a commercial property value of $500,000 as examples. Residents and businesses of Sanitary District 2 pay $211.07 and $1,079.32 more than their counterparts served by the Town of Hempstead, according to the LIPC’s calculations. ResD and LIPC members anticipate lower taxes because of increased purchasing power, according to Ms. Mallay. “It stands to reason that pur-

chasing 100 garbage trucks at a time will be more cost effective than buying 20,” ResD’s Special Taxing District Rate Comparison Web site states. If residents eventually vote to dissolve the district, the dissolved former district’s commissioners will be required to create a plan for future refuse removal, said Mike Deery, communications director for the Town of Hempstead. District 2’s Mr. Wiedmann agreed and added: “Nobody really knows how this whole thing’s going to work.” Reflecting on the forms the dissolution plan might take, David Segal, communications coordinator for the LIPC, commented on the possibility of district employees losing their jobs. “We don’t expect a need for duplicated administrative services, but we will need just as many workers picking up the garbage as before,” he said. Mr. Wiedmann expressed doubts that current employees will be hired after the dissolution, even if the as-yet

unknown commissioner’s plan calls for it. He also laid out costs that the new administration will be forced to absorb, including severance pay, ongoing retiree benefits, unemployment costs and the remaining costs of the building’s purchase. In addition, Mr. Wiedmann described some of the services the district offers that he said are not available through the Town of Hempstead. For example, the Baldwin and Roosevelt School Districts and the Baldwin and South Hempstead Fire Departments refuel their vehicles and pay the New York State contract price, which is “way less than the pump price.” The district also provides graffiti removal and sometimes removes dead animals from roadways. The Town of Hempstead’s E-Cycling initiatives were originally modeled after those of Sanitary District 2, said Mr. Wiedmann. He said that the district has made efforts to cut costs, including not replacing two retirees.

Litigation threatens Sanitary District 2 vote

Police reports come from law enforcement agencies. Suspects are presumed innocent unless and until convicted in court.

Freeport. Ms. Romero, using handwritten signs with tear-off phone numbers, lured victims into a rental scam. After taking cash deposits from unwary victims, she knowingly took money for rooms and apartments that were already rented and occupied. She used the same scam during the same time period at a property she rented on Guy Lombardo Avenue, owned by G&M Mechanical of Wantagh. To pay for the rented property, Ms. Romero used forged international money orders as payment to the owner. On September 21, at 11:30 a.m., Ms. Romero was placed under arrest by investigating detectives without incident. The suspect is charged with two counts of Grand Larceny, three counts of Petit Larceny, and Forgery. uuu A Freeport man was one of two suspects arrested in a robbery in Malverne Park on Monday at 4:45 p.m. According to detectives, three persons entered the USA Gas Station on Hempstead Avenue in a Nissan Altima. The driver asked the 58-year-old attendant for $20 worth of gas. The attendant notified the suspects that the credit card they were attempting to pay with was declined. At that time, Lapourcha Castro, 21, of East Meadow, threatened the victim with a silver box cutter. Corey Deas, 22, of South Long Beach Avenue, Freeport. grabbed the victim around the throat and threw him to the ground, causing the victim to strike his head. As the victim

An attempted robbery occurred in Freeport on Friday at 5 a.m. According to detectives, a 53-year-old victim was standing at Merrick Road and South Main Street when he was approached by four unknown men. The men demanded the victim’s property and when he refused one man displayed a knife. The victim grabbed the knife and struck one man in the face, knocking him to the ground. All the would-be robbers then fled on foot southbound. There were no proceeds. The victim was treated for a cut on his right hand and injured right knee at a local hospital. One man is described as Hispanic, approximately 25 years old, 5’2” tall, unshaven with a scar on the right side of his forehead and wearing a blue jean jacket. There is no description of the other three perpetrators. Detectives request anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous. uuu First Squad detectives arrested a Freeport woman on Friday for a Grand Larceny in 2009 in Freeport. According to detectives, in a scheme to defraud, Maria Romero, 44, of Guy Lombardo Avenue, Freeport, between April and December of 2009, advertised rooms and or apartments for rent at Compare Foods on Merrick Road in

attempted to get up Corey Deas began to punch him about the head and face. The victim was able to get back to the office and grabbed a walking stick for protection. He damaged the vehicle’s driver’s door as they fled the scene. A short time later the suspects called 911 and returned to the scene to report

the damage to their vehicle. At that time they were placed under arrest without incident. The victim suffered cuts to his left knee and right arm but refused medical attention at the scene. Suspects Castro and Deas are each charged with one count of robbery. This investigation is continuing.

Home invaded in Baldwin The First Squad is investigating an occupied burglary that occurred on Sunday, September 23, at 3:20 a.m. in Baldwin. According to detectives, a 23-year-old woman was asleep in her third floor locked bedroom on Central Avenue when she heard the door knob moving. The victim knew she was home alone and immediately called 911. Upon police arrival a man carrying a backpack was seen fleeing from the house. A

search of the area was conducted by First Precinct police officers and a K-9 unit with negative results. Recovered at the scene was a backpack containing a XBOX gaming system, a Sony camera and camcorder all identified by the victim as belonging to the residence. Detectives request anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1800-244-TIPS.

By Kevin Halton, Jr. With autumn’s sunny days and crisp, cool air upon us, there’s no better time to reserve a few minutes each day for a walk outside, with perhaps a few intervals of jogging. When combined with a few healthy substitutions at the dinner table, significant health benefits will be immediately gained, such as more energy, and evenlydistributed body weight loss. One such healthy dietary recommendation is: eat less red meat, sugar and flour, and enjoy more of the delicious bounties of the sea! A recent multi-university study* concluded that “a most effective dietary substitution for meat or pasta is seafood.” Fish is not only a nutrient-rich food but also an excellent source of protein, vitamins and minerals, and is more easily absorbed than red meat. And the “fat” found in fish? It’s great for you! Fish fat is not actually “fat,” but is called “omega-3 fatty acids,” which have proven to help lower cholesterol. This then, allows a greater blood supply throughout your body, including your brain. So, your mom was right: fish is truly brain food, and eating fish keeps your heart healthy. With that said, it’s easy to understand why many researchers claim eating fish can even improve your mood! So you’ve decided to add fish to your diet, and now have a question or two. There’s only one way to get fish-friendly: find a high-quality fish market you can

The Nassau County Police Department will host a Gun Buy Back Program on Saturday, September 29, from 9 a.m. to noon at Pastor Donald A. McClurkin Jr.’s Perfecting Faith Church at 311 North Main Street in Freeport. The Gun Buy Back Program is strictly anonymous and individuals will be paid $200 cash for each turned in operable handgun. Not accepted are: licensed guns, BB Guns, air pistols, long guns and replicas. Guns transported by car must be transported in the trunk of the car and must be unloaded and put in a plastic/paper bag or in a shoe box. “The Gun Buy Back Program, using asset forfeiture dollars, has taken 2,099 guns off our streets before they fell into the wrong hands,” said Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano. “Community support is critical to the success of this program, and we appreciate the assistance of Pastor Donald A. McClurkin Jr. and the members of the

clergy who are participating in this effort to take even more firearms off our streets. By working together, we can ensure that Nassau County remains the safest suburban county in the nation.” “Nassau County law enforcement is committed to taking a proactive stance against gun violence, and gun buyback events like this have proven effective in getting illegal weapons out of homes and off of our streets,” District Attorney Kathleen Rice said. “I want to thank the religious and community leaders who believe in our efforts, and help make this program so successful.” “The Gun Buy Back program, our ShotSpotter Program and our GunStoppers Program have been very effective in decreasing gun-related crime here in Nassau County,” said Police Commissioner Tom Dale. Forfeiture funds from the Nassau County Police Department and the district attorney’s office are used to fund the Gun Buy Back Program.

trust: one that has these elements: • A solid reputation: A fish market that has been in business for a while and is well-known for quality and freshness is a good place to start. Ask your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. You’ll probably hear the same one or two most often. Logically, it’s located near the sea! • A trustworthy source for advice: Ask the employees at the fish market about seasonality, and tips on preparation. They should be able to offer you the best fish “in season” with suggestions on how to prepare them: either broil or bake in the oven or better yet, on the backyard grill. • A quick guide to avoiding “high mercury” fish: Fish market employees should know the mercury levels of fish caught in the area. There are many fine low-mercury fish available on Long Island’s South Shore, such as fluke, flounder, mackerel, haddock, clams, crabs, snapper, codfish, and halibut. • A customer-friendly fish market: They should have a quality staff that offers to scale and clean your whole fish at no additional charge. It’s time to go outside and take a daily stroll in this beautiful early fall winter. Start eating healthy foods such as vegetables, nuts, and especially delicious seafood! There is growing evidence that fish may be the ultimate anti-aging super food! A recent study noted that certain cultures heavily reliant on fish for sustenance enjoyed heart-healthy, extended life-spans with up to 30% reduction in

A star-studded lineup of comedians promises to shake the house down with an evening of laughter and entertainment not seen in Bellmore since the grand tribute to the late ventriloquist-comedian Vince Dantona on Sunday, October 7, at 7 p.m. at the Bellmore Movies. The comics will gather specifically to raise funds for animal rescue, with Paul Bond’s Cat Placement and Rescue and C+H Animal Rescue for Dogs receiving 100% of the donations from the fundraiser. “I have a great love for animals,” remarked Rick Morgan, MC of the event. “I rescued a cat from the Brookhaven Animal Shelter from a certain death” by adopting him. He added that, while his daughter at first questioned why he had rescued the cat, she now looks forward to seeing the cat greet her when she comes home at night. Paul Bond, a comedian sharing the marquee with several others, “owns 20 cats,” Mr. Morgan said. “Coach” Tom Whiteley, another comedian on the bill, “has 12 cats at home.” Mr. Morgan said Mr. Bond’s approach to rescuing cats is to find those in distress by word of mouth or other means, and feed them to health. “He then finds homes for them,” or takes them to a cat junction across state lines, where the cats are taken care of and live out their lives on spread-out land, he said. Among comedians making an appearance for the animals is Greek international sensation Basile, from “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” A&E’s “An Evening at the Improv,” HBO, “Caroline’s Comedy Hour” on

Comedy Central, Showtime’s Comedy Club Network and other cable comedy programs. “He’s flying in from his schedule on the road on his own time to be here to promote animal rescue,” remarked host Gary Smith. During the second half of the show Basile will team with Ellen Karis, the Greek goddess of comedy, who has appeared on radio, TV and in Atlantic City. “Their routine will be strongly American comedy,” Mr. Morgan suggested, “with some Greek comedy thrown in.” Besides Mr. Bond and “Coach” Whiteley, also on the bill are the comic duo of Isaacs and Baker of the Long Island Comedy Festival, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods; Tom Daddario of Foxwoods and New York City comedy clubs; and Fran Capo. “Fran is the author of 17 books, has had a book signing on Mt. Kilimanjaro, been to the Titanic site beneath the ocean in a Russian vessel and is dubbed ‘the world’s fastesttalking woman,’ ” continued Mr. Morgan. Animals need humans’ help and the benefit is precisely to help animals get

BASILE will be one of the performers at the October 7 fundraiser.

October art exhibit From October 1 to 30, the exhibit “3D Roaming: Jones Beach” is about Herb Jurist’s interest in beach material dating back to his childhood in Freeport, where he enjoyed fishing, boating, beaching,and sailing the local waters. In 2001, he began collecting seashells, painting on them using acrylic paints and eventually added driftwood to his collection, taking lessons for two years from art teacher Steve Lampasona. All of Mr. Jurist’s canvases come from the seashore at Jones Beach and surrounding areas. From October 2-30, the exhibit consists of Pixel Portfolio. “I especially enjoy digital photography because of its unlimited capacity to manipulate the elements of art, such as form, color, texture and light,” says retired New York City art teacher John Michaels. He has participated in numerous juried exhibits around Long Island. When you visit his exhibit, you will see how his manipulation of each image brings it to life.

Bonilla vows to fight charges By Douglas Finlay and Laura Schofer A case of alleged sexual harrassment, usually a civic matter, is now a criminal case, said Nassau District Attorney Kathleen Rice at a press conference Tuesday. Hempstead Town Clerk, Mark Bonilla, is being accused of sexual harrassment of a 21-year-old woman who works in his office, and he is charged with Official Misconduct, Coercion and Petit Larceny. He was charged on Friday in Nassau County Court and released on his own recognizance. He is due back in court on October 26. All charges against Mr. Bonilla are misdemeanors. The charges do not infer any evidence of physical sexual assault or harrassment, said DA Rice. However, she said the charges are criminal in nature because of Mr. Bonilla’s efforts to discredit the alleged victim. “He used his position in public office for blackmail,” she said. “He tried to use his public office to shield himself.” Mark DA Rice explains “The Hempstead Town Attorney told investigators [from the DA’s office] that when Mark Bonilla was interviewed, he asked whether a $10,000 payment to the complainant would make the allegations go away,” said DA Rice. She explained that when the plan was rejected, Mr. Bonilla approached another employee, Alex Desidero, for help. “Mr. Bonilla knew that Mr. Desidero had a relationship with her [the young woman in question]. He [Mr. Bonilla] said she was a bad person and did Mr. Desidero have any information to deter her,” said DA Rice. “Mr. Desidero said he had intimate photos and Mr. Bonilla asked for them. Mr. Desidero was threatened. If he refused he would lose his job or he could [comply] and be promoted,” explained DA Rice. “Mr. Desidero created a CD and gave it to Mr. Bonilla’s assistant but it didn’t have any [compromising] photos,” she said. “This is unacceptable for a public official to do this. That is why I am encouraging anyone with information on this to reach out to us, directly.” However, DA Rice said other victims have not come forward as of Tuesday. Attorney talks Adrian DiLuzio of Mineola, Mr. Bonilla’s attorney, told The Leader he believes that “all of the accusations are sufficiently vague and unsubstantiated.” “There is no proof at this point and no written statements.” He called it a “he said, she said” case thus far. When asked about whether Mr.

Bonilla was allowed back into his office to continue to do his job, Mr. DiLuzio said, “I told him to go back to work.” Mr. Bonilla was back at work Monday in his office executing the duties of town clerk. Susie Pokalsky, a town spokeswoman, told The Leader that locks were changed on Mr. Bonilla’s door to protect personal belongings in his office. Mr. Bonilla was given a new key to get into the office. Town press conference On Saturday Hempstead Town Supervisor Kate Murray and members of the Town Board called for the resignation of Mr. Bonilla after he was arrested on charges by the Nassau district attorney’s office on Friday. Ms. Murray said that, should he be exonerated of the charges, he would not be permitted to regain his office. When asked whether the town confronted Mr. Bonilla with the information, and asked him to resign or resolve the issue before having him arrested, Ms. Pokalsky told The Bonilla Leader that new information came to the town both last Thursday and Friday “that had to be shared with the DA’s office.” Mr. Diluzio told The Leader that a discussion between town attorneys and Mr. Bonilla took place weeks before his arrest. Mr. Bonilla responds Mr. Bonilla on his Facebook page, denied any wrongdoing. Responding to friends’ comments on his arrest, he said, “All I ask is that people keep their minds open that the allegations may be false. Because they are!” Saying that party politics is ugly, he said, “I’m a fighter and will fight to the end,” adding that, “I’m seeing the true colors of my fellow colleagues.” Town Attorney Joseph Ra said that if the charges had been felonies, Mr. Bonilla would have automatically been removed from the office. But because the town provision for removing Mr. Bonilla was “nebulous,” the town is “researching options” to replace Mr. Bonilla’s place as the town clerk, Mr. Ra said. He added that the person chosen would then occupy the position and run in the election for the seat in 2013. Supervisor Murray said the town delivered a letter to Mr. Bonilla’s residence asking him to resign. Ms. Murray expressed sadness, disappointment and surprise caused by the allegations. Mr. Bonilla, the first Latino to hold public office in the Town of Hempstead, became town clerk in 2003. A criminal attorney, he is a 1981 graduate of Island Trees High School.
