Freeport Peace March May 4 Freeport Cares invites the community to participate in the fourth annual Freeport Peace March. Freeport Cares is a joint project of the Freeport Public Schools and the Village of Freeport. The mission of Freeport Cares is to coordinate the programs and activities of the Freeport Public Schools, the Village of Freeport, the business community, local houses of worship, and Nassau County. The goal is to support the needs of young people and families and to promote the well-being and educational and social success of the entire Freeport community. As a result, the Freeport Cares Committee has finalized the details of a planned Peace March scheduled for Saturday, May 4. Last year, over 1,000 members of the community participated and the spirit of unity and mutual support for each other was stirring. Freeport Cares would be

pleased if Freeporters would join us as we once again walk with Freeport families in support of our theme of “Peace in our Community.” Various groups will assemble at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of Freeport High School with the designated step-off time set for 9:30 a.m. At the end of the march, a Health and Wellness Fair will be held at Freeport High School. The route for the Peace March is as follows: Depart from Freeport High School (50 South Brookside Avenue), proceed east on Pine Street to Bayview Avenue, south to Merrick Road, west back to Brookside Avenue, and then north back to Freeport High School. We are suggesting that participants in the march wear something yellow, the color representing our sincere hope for, and commitment to, peace. – from the Freeport Schools

Six months after superstorm Sandy hit these shores, the coastal waterways are still littered with debris, some within view but also plenty of it lurking beneath the water’s surface, town Supervisor Kate Murray stated. “There has been a great change to our waters and we are facing unique safety challenges this boating season. Boaters need to be on high alert, use caution and be aware of surroundings,” she said. Joining Supervisor Murray at a boaters safety briefing on Monday, April 15 were Rob Weltner, president of Operation SPLASH (Stop Polluting, Littering and Save Harbors) with other members of SPLASH, County Executive Edward P. Mangano, Councilwoman Angie Cullin and Chris Squeri, executive director of the New York Marine Trades Association. They had gathered at the Town of Hempstead’s Department of

Waterways and Conservation building in Freeport to caution boaters about the “new normal out in the Bays,” said Rob Weltner, as well as to ask mariners to report debris in local waterways. Hempstead Town’s Conservation and Waterways team has removed all kinds of debris including lumber, damaged boats, sections of bulkhead, broken docks, machinery, entire bayhouses and roofing. Another complicating factor associate with recovering post-Sandy marine debris is that the debris is dynamic, moving in and out of waterways with surging and receding tides. Additionally, wind shifts, tidal dynamics and water currents move water bound hot tubs, bulkheads and furniture around the waterways. “On Monday there could be a sofa in the waters off of Massapequa but by Thursday, you’ll find it in [the waters off] Island Park,” said Supervisor Murray. These items can present serious hazards to those operating boats, wave runners, sailboats and other water

TOH Democrats plan Earth Day cleanup The Town of Hempstead Democratic Committee (ToHDC) Environmental Caucus will host a clean-up event for Earth Day in the Merrick and Roosevelt Preserves on Saturday, April 20, and Hempstead Lake State Park on Sunday, April 21. ToHDC members are looking for volunteers to join them and high-school

volunteers who will be engaging in the cleanup. The two events will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Earth Day weekend, Saturday and Sunday, April 20 and 21, respectively. If you are interested in participating, please contact Michael Turi at or call 341-7880.

Weltner. “I’ve been boating for 50 years and I ran aground out there. If you are going out to the canyon at night, it can be treacherous, so be careful. Sediment has moved, inlets have opened and closed. This storm [Sandy] changed the life of the bay.” Additionally, boaters can help return the bays to a more pristine and safer condition by reporting any floating debris to Hempstead’s Bay Constable at 801-5608, said Supervisor Murray. Impediments to navigation in Jones Inlet and other federal channels should be brought to the attention of the U.S. Coast Guard at 785-2921 and if you’d like to help with a cleanup you can contact Operation SPLASH at Finally, any serious water accidents may be reported to 911 for the Nassau County Police Department’s Marine Bureau. The Coast Guard, the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Town of Hempstead bay constables also have jurisdiction along the South Shore Estuary. “Enjoy, but be careful,” stated Ms. Murray. “Use common sense steps for a safe and happy boating season.”

craft. Supervisor Murray said the debris could be particularly hazardous to water skiers and those being towed behind boats in tubes. “Boaters should use extreme caution when they return to the waters this Spring,” said County Executive Mangano. “The bays are still littered with dangerous debris.” To date, the town has collected more than 800 tons of debris. “We will continue to collect debris throughout the year,” said Supervisor Murray. “This is much too important to the well being of our residents and for the environment and of course it is a safety issue,” she added. At its March cleanup, Operation SPLASH removed 41,000 pounds [over 20 tons] of garbage in three hours. “There is more debris than ever,” said Mr. Weltner. Boaters also need to be attentive to changes in the bottom depths of bays and waterways. The storm caused shoaling and other changes to the topography of the bottoms of the bays and waterways, he added. “Please take it slow; think of it as your first time on the water,” said Mr.

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

The other marathon Monday was Patriot Day in Boston, meant to celebrate the bravery of our founding fathers. But it was also another darker kind of day, with blasts at the finish line of the Boston Marathon killing an eight-year-old child, among others, and proving that evil still lurks. They set off another kind of marathon, with first responders and emergency medical personnel working furiously to save many, many lives. They are the real heroes of the day, the true patriots. Let's not forget to thank the first responders who live and work among us every day, who just as suddenly could once again be called upon to help in a disaster, natural or manmade.

Rolling over in his grave That’s what Benjamin Franklin, newspaper publisher, Founding Father, and the nation’s first postmaster would be doing. Saturday mail has been saved for the moment, but the post office continues to operate at a loss, partly because it has to prefund pensions, something no other department is required to do. To compensate, it is attempting to balance its books by privatizing as much as possible and going after the most profitable business, instead of adhering to its mandate of securing communication for all, which is crucial and necessary in a democracy. Our newspaper subscribers are incensed when they do not receive their newspaper on time because we are bumped by Pennysavers, even though periodicals class is supposed to receive faster service than standard class. It is both frustrating to us and heartwarming when you call, but why not let your local post office know? Here are some numbers for you: Bellmore 781-0579; Freeport 378-6512; Merrick 378-7087; Seaford 785-3851; and Wantagh 785-3425.

No poem as lovely as a tree Superstorm Sandy took down many, many trees and electrical lines with them. Homes were damaged when trees fell on them. It is no wonder that now in the spring so many homeowners have decided to take down perfectly healthy trees in order to protect their homes in future storms. Are we headed towards the “Queensification” of our community? It would be sad to lose so many trees for their shade, for the way they clean the air, for the sake of the birds and wildlife that live in them, and for the protection from erosion that their roots provide. The Town of Hempstead offers help with replacing stormdamaged trees, preferably in the fall. Next week both Earth Day and Arbor Day are observed, and trees bought from the Arbor Day Foundation help support the environment worldwide. Local nurseries stand ready to provide advice on which trees can replace those taken down. It is said that every man should plant a tree (and write a book and have a child) in his lifetime. Let’s each plant a tree that, as Joyce Kilmer wrote, “lifts its leafy arms to pray.” After Sandy, we can use all the prayers we can get.

by Doug Finlay Nunley’s Carousel enthusiast Marisa Berman has written a new book on Nunley’s Carousel, “Nunley’s Amusement Park,” launching it recently at the carousel’s home at Nassau County’s Museum Row to an enthusiastic crowd of parents. “I lived in Oceanside but both my parents went to Baldwin High School. They used to take me there all the time,” Ms. Berman told The Leader. Ms. Berman, who works at the Kupferberg Holocaust Museum at Queensborough College, told this newspaper she had been looking for subjects to write about when she came upon the idea of the Nunley’s book. She used Facebook, The Daily News and other local media to request photos and anecdotes of people who

went to the carousel and began a collection of all those memories. She also interviewed with Gary Monti, manager of Nunley’s at Museum Row, for more detailed information. Ms. Berman said over 50 people contributed to the book. Nancy and Rainer Radecker of Uniondale, who grew up in Freeport and met at Freeport High School, have four photos in the book, which portray them as young teens sitting for various poses in the photo booth. Said Mr. Radecker, “Nunley’s was our ‘home away from home.’ ” Beth Obergh of Wantagh, who operates the carousel, and Mr. Ponti told this newspaper that some 40,000 people per year ride the carousel at its home at Museum Row. “Most of those rides are during the weekend,” added

NUNLEY’S MEMORIES: Author Marisa Berman (right) with Nancy and Rainer Radecker, Freeport High School alums and Nunley’s fans who contributed four photos to the book.

Ms. Obergh. Ms. Obergh remembered when Nunley’s operated a carousel at Jolly Roger in Bethpage, at the corner of Hempstead Turnpike and Hicksville Road. “It was called Smiley’s Happyland,” she recalled. Smiley’s and Jolly Roger closed in 1979. Nunley’s also operated at carousel at Rockaway’s Playland.

The 128-page softcover “Nunley’s Amusement Park” is published by Arcadia Publishing and can be purchased by visiting at Or, you can greet Ms. Berman at Baldwin Public Library on Wednesday, May 8, when she does another book signing. For information call the library at 223-6228.

Looking for BHS Classes of 1960-63

‘Gallery without Walls’ debuts at FHS Freeport High School made this year’s celebration of Youth Art Month especially meaningful with the ribboncutting of the new “Gallery Without Walls” in the school atrium. “There is no question that the arts are essential to every child’s education,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham. “We celebrate the arts in Freeport.” The exhibit is stationed just outside the school auditorium in the main lobby. It features newly installed key lights, 12 frames that will be changed regularly, folding sectionals to hold hanging art, and pedestals that hold 3-D work in lighted glass cases. “Many years ago, Dr. Kuncham said he’d like to see a more professional gallery,” said Catherine Rode-Flores,

the district’s visual arts facilitator, during the ribbon-cutting ceremony. “He wanted the art to be seen in a more professional light.” Ms. Rode-Flores coordinated the ribbon cutting ceremony and, with input from the art faculty, oversaw the design and installation of the exhibit space. The work being displayed represents the best of the 120 participating art students. Art teachers Thomas Alma, Nicholas Cuccio, Catherine RodeFlores, Jocelyn Rodriguez-McShan and Shaniqua Thompson oversee the selection process. Visitors to the school who have passed through security can view the gallery. Youth Art Month has been celebrated across the country since 1961 and in the Freeport schools since 2005.

Fifty-three years after the landmark Project Talent study was first administered, researchers are seeking the classes 196063 from Baldwin Senior High School to discover what became of their lives. In 1960, Project Talent assessed the aptitudes and abilities, hopes and expectations of 440,000 high school students from across America. The study was conducted by the American Institutes for Research (AIR) and the United States Office of Education. “The Project Talent generation is very important in the history of this country,” says Sabine Horner, Project Talent’s Director of Outreach and Communications. “They came of age during an era of great upheaval and they transformed the United States as we knew it. Project Talent is an opportunity to share their perspectives and experiences in a meaningful way that can benefit future generations.” Large studies that follow people from adolescence to retirement are both rare and extremely valuable. They allow researchers to make connections between early life experiences and later life outcomes. A new follow-up study can tell us how family and educational

background impact the life course, up to and including the retirement process. Researchers can also learn why certain people stay healthier and happier and are more able to enjoy their later life. Members of the classes of 1960-1963 from Baldwin Senior High School are asked to contact Project Talent to register their interest and provide details of where they can be contacted to receive further information. Project Talent is also interested in any information that can be provided about the whereabouts of other classmates. Participants can call the project at 866-770-6077 or send an email to You can also visit the Project Talent website:

‘Once Upon a Mattress’ is a success at BHS by Arielle Martinez Baldwin High School has produced many entertaining musicals in years past, and the school continued the tradition with its production of “Once Upon a Mattress,” a comical adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, “The Princess and the Pea.” The play ran from Thursday, April 11, to Saturday, April 13. It was produced by Director of Fine and Performing Arts Ed Chiarello and directed by Mary Hickey Truelson, with assistance by conductor Kimberly Roof, vocal director Marc Greene, set designer and lighting coordinator . Scott Peritz, construction manager Anthony DeAngelis, choreographer Ann Marie Lupo, and costumer Barbara Kirby.

Leading the large cast were Hannah Marrero as Princess Winnifred, Leron Wellington as Prince Dauntless, Ally Callaghan as Lady Larken, Nick Kelliher as Sir Harry, Taylor Amato as the queen, Johnathan Fulcher as the king, Audrey Wilson as the minstrel, Malik Somers as the jester, Pierre Sanon as the wizard, and Rachel Clark as the Nightingale of Samarkand. A large ensemble of students made up a cast of ladies-in-waiting and knights. Mr. Wellington, who will be directing the high school’s production of the Neil Simon play “Plaza Suite” this May, told The Leader, “This show is really driven by an ensemble cast. Everyone

was so talented, so I pushed me to be the best I could be.” Auditions took place this past June and the cast spent the summer and fall memorizing lines and rehearsing songs such as “Opening for a Princess,” “Shy” and “The Swamps of Home.” The musical, originally scheduled to run from November 15-17, was delayed because the high school closed in early November due to superstorm Sandy. However, those involved in the production were able to work through several difficulties to put together a better quality performance. “As we kept doing rehearsals, I realized that the actors were getting really into it. It really pulled together, and I was very impressed with the end result,” said

Jazmin Montalvo, a violinist in the pit orchestra. Mr. Wellington added, “Because we had a new director this year, we didn’t exactly know what direction we were heading in but, in the end, we pulled together through it. That’s what made it a good show.” Students in stage crew (or “krough,” as it is called by its members) and the stage crafts class worked hard to create a medieval kingdom on the stage of the auditorium. “Running around backstage is so stressful but so much fun,” concluded Nicole Nolan, the prop mistress for the stage crew. Editor’s Note: Arielle Martinez is in the Senior Experience program at Baldwin High School and an intern at The Leader.

TOO GOOD FOR DRUGS: In addition to working with fourth and fifth graders on the Too Good For Drugs curriculum, Claudia Rotondo, director of the Baldwin Council Against Drug Abuse (BCADA), has been implementing discussion groups with the students in the Hastings Academy. In explaining the adverse effects of drugs on the body, she told the students, “The only time you can control a drug is before you put it into your body. Once it’s in there, it controls you. If people realized the damage drugs cause, they might just think twice.”

Christ Lutheran is 104! Marie Carmel Houanche, displaced from her Freeport home by superstorm Sandy, is the chairperson of a committee planning a festive birthday party at Christ-Cristo Lutheran Church. The date is Saturday, June 8. The building was constructed in 1927 and stands at the corner of North Grove Street and Randall Avenue, adjacent to the Village Hall. Deacon Bobbi Paulik, Parish Administrator, states, “The church was built in 1927 for $160,000, but it’s priceless now to the active membership." Ethel Harris, co-chair of the celebration, reports a journal is being prepared. She requests local businesses provide business cards for this. Many local families have a history with the church and are also invited to sign up as sponsors and supporters for the journal. Pastor Emilce Erato has been leading

the congregation since December, 2010. She is the 11th pastor in the church’s history. Pastor Emilce is bilingual and leads both English and Spanish services every Sunday at 9:30 and 11 a.m. The church council, led by Frank Georges, president, and Felicia Robinson-Fiorillo, vice-president, are working with the planning committee. The church has been host to Scout Troop 37 for decades. The church also has teen, men’s and senior groups that meet regularly. The congregation also has social gatherings such as the recent celebration of Black History Month and the St. Patrick’s Dinner-Dance. The church address is 61 North Grove Street, and the telephone is 378-1258. Call weekday mornings with any inquiries and know that neighbors are welcome and prayer requests are always accepted.

Disaster relief team coming to Freeport A team of highly skilled disaster response experts from international relief organization World Renew will be on Long Island starting next week to assess the needs of those residents still struggling to recover from Superstorm Sandy. The 20-member team is being hosted by the Long Island Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster’s Long Term Recovery Group, which is a coalition of governmental and nonprofit organizations doing disaster relief work, including the Health and Welfare Council of Long Island and the Long Island Volunteer Center. World Renew’s trained volunteers, known as the Green Shirts for their attire, will be collecting information through interviews with residents to create a comprehensive needs assessment, which will help local volunteer organizations as they work to address unmet storm-related needs, such as home repair, temporary housing, unpaid bills, and transportation. The World Renew needs assessment is a key part of the Long Term Recovery Group’s coordinated disaster response plan for Long Island, not only providing service providers with information on the depth of the needs that remain among households, but also connecting disaster victims with New York State’s federally-funded Disaster Case Management program. It is through this $38.5 million program, a public-private partnership providing storm victims with a long-term case worker, that residents can access an array of disaster relief services. The Archdiocese of New York administers the program and works with local community-based non-profits, including FEGS, Catholic Charities, Family Service League and Lutheran Disaster Services, to provide services in the community. Through World Renew’s comprehensive and private needs assessment, disaster agencies working as part of the Long Term Recovery Group will be able to identify those storm victims who are the most vulnerable and in need and then get assistance to them quickly. Residents who have applied for and received FEMA assistance can participate in the Disaster Case Management

program, as can storm victims who were rejected or are ineligible. “World Renew couldn’t come at a more critical time in Long Island’s recovery. Now six months since the storm, those who can help themselves are on the road to recovery. For those who are struggling to navigate this process alone, World Renew will identify and connect them with Disaster Case Management,” says Diana O’Neill, Executive Committee Member of Long Island Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster’s Long Term Recovery Group. “Their assistance in finding those falling through the cracks is invaluable to Long Island and these recovery efforts.” Walk-in centers for World Renew needs assessments will be open at the Freeport Recreation Center, 130 East Merrick Road, April 22-26 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Long Islanders seeking more information about World Renew needs assessment can dial 211 or 1-888-774-7633.

About the Long Island Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster’s Long Term Recovery Group Originally convened by the Health and Welfare Council of Long Island in response to 9/11, the Long Island Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (LIVOAD) is a collaborative effort of health and human service, religious, and government agencies who work in partnership on Long Islandfocused disaster response and recovery. Based on a national model of disaster response, the LIVOAD has “stood up” since 9/11 in response to the economic disaster of 2007-08, after Tropical Storm Irene and now in response to superstorm Sandy. LIVOAD immediately responded when the storm hit, coordinating efforts to ensure that victims had their basic necessities met, including food and shelter. Since that immediate rescue period, LIVOAD has grown to more than 100 agencies and convened the Long Term Recovery Group, which has a dozen subcommittees coordinating assistance related to housing, disaster case management, volunteer management, donation management and other critical pieces to recovery.
