Freepor t has a field day

FREEPORT HIGH SCHOOL’S new turf field is just about done. School officials promise the field and accompanying lights will be ready for the first football game in September.

Sanitary district dissolution is proposed by Arielle Martinez The local civic organization Residents for Efficient Special Districts (RESD) has filed a petition to dissolve Sanitary District 2. The group says the taxes of District 2, which has served Roosevelt, Baldwin, South Hempstead and sections of Uniondale for 84 years, are too high and the Town of Hempstead could provide less costly service, according to the RESD website. RESD is calling for dissolution under the New York Government Reorganization and Citizen Empowerment Act, which states that voters may commence a dissolution proceeding by filing a petition, which must contain the signatures of at least 10% of the number of voters in the district or 5,000 voters, whichever is less. The organization collected over 5,000 signatures and delivered the petition to the office of Nassau County Clerk Maureen O’Connell on Monday, Long

Island Business News reported. But district representatives have stated that the dissolution of Sanitary District 2 would not result in significant savings in sanitation collection costs. “The pie chart that they were walking around with, saying people will save hundreds of dollars, shows that there’s only a $128 difference. The district gives all the school districts fuel and garbage collection. That’s thousands and thousands of dollars that would just be absolutely lost,” Douglas Wiedmann, the secretary of the district’s Board of Commissioners told The Leader. Officials also argue that the dissolution of the district would result in loss of employment for district workers, and claims that the Town of Hempstead would provide the same service are false. “The Town of Hempstead told us that they would not take on any employees from Sanitary District 2. We just feel that the service we provide is far superior to the Town of Hempstead,” said

Mr. Wiedmann. “These people are getting paid to walk around trying to get these signatures. Most of them are not even residents of our district. Some aren’t even residents of Nassau County. If the facts were out there and people weren’t being told that each commissioner gets $100,000, a Cadillac and lifetime benfits, which is not true, that would make a difference. But people are hearing this misinformation and they believe it.” Mike Deery, a spokesman for the Town of Hempstead, responded, “Our position has always been and remains that we’re very much committed to the will of the people. If residents of the special district think that we’ll do a good job and would like to see the Town of Hempstead assume service in this particular district, it’s something that we would seek to accommodate.” According to the Government Reorganization and Citizen Empowerment Act, the Office of the Clerk must make a final determination

on the sufficiency of the signatures of the petition within 10 days of its filing. A referendum on the proposed dissolution must be voted on at a special election to be held not less than 60 or more than 90 days after the enactment of the resolution calling for the referendum. If the efforts of RESD are successful, the district will be the largest local government entity to be dissolved by petition under the act on Long Island. An election will be held to vote for a commissioner of Sanitary District No. 2 today, July 26, between 2 and 10 p.m. in the Sanitary District 2 building on Grand Avenue in Baldwin, the Queen of the Most Holy Rosary Parish on Centennial Avenue in Roosevelt and Covert Elementary School on Willow Street in South Hempstead. James Major is on the ballot opposing John A. Cools, the current chairman of the district’s Board of Commissioners, whose term will

Sex offender pleads guilty

Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced last week that a level 3 sex offender pleaded guilty to multiple child pornography charges after a search warrant revealed numerous images and videos at his home. Charles Weaver, 55, of Baldwin, pleaded guilty to three counts of Promoting a Sexual Performance by a Child as a Sexually Motivated Felony. Judge William O’Brien promised to sentence him to 15 years in prison in exchange for his plea on August 23. DA Rice said that during August and September 2011, investigators from the Nassau DA’s office observed him trading multiple images of child pornography over the Internet. A search warrant

was executed at his home and approximately 75 to 100 images of child pornography were discovered, including at least 50 videos. Weaver admitted to possessing images and videos featuring children between the ages of seven and 10. Prior to this case, he was already registered as a level 3 sex offender after serving 10 years in prison for a 1990 conviction of Criminal Sexual Act in the First Degree. He was also previously convicted for failing to register as a sex offender. “Mr. Weaver is among the worst of the worst offenders against children, and the only way to prevent this predator from victimizing innocent children again is to

lock him away,” DA Rice said. “I want to applaud the work of the investigators and prosecutors in my office for their tireless work in bringing this defendant to justice.”

Assistant District Attorney Jeremy Glicksman of the Technology Crimes Unit is prosecuting the case for the DA’s Office. The defendant is represented by the Legal Aid Society of Nassau County.

by Linda Delmonico Prussen As hot and humid as it may have been outside Monday night it wasn’t the weather that had residents, the mayor and village board members hot and bothered. It was heated discussions regarding a Request for Proposal for a forensic audit of the Village of Freeport. The subject on the agenda for the sixth time – and for the sixth time not moved on, was opened up for public discussion by Mayor Andrew Hardwick. The first resident to address the board was Earline Skates. Mrs. Skates asked trustee Carmen Pineyro why, if she was in favor of a forensic audit as mentioned on her bio page, she has not moved on the subject in the six times it has been brought up at village meetings. What ensued was a near-silent standoff between Mrs. Skates and Ms. Pineyro, as she would only reply, “I’ll answer that later.� Mrs. Skates then asked, “When?� The silence stretched on. Ms. Pineyro said she’d address the subject later in the meeting, but Mrs. Skates replied, “Why not answer it now?� [As of presstime the audit comment was still on.] At the podium next was resident Peter Norris, who was so in favor of a forensic audit that he drafted a petition to implore the board to move forward on the proposal. Mr. Norris asked the mayor to be the first signature on the petition, and after reading the petition aloud, the mayor agreed. Applause broke out into the room, stoking the

sparks on the already volatile subject. Alan Jay, a regular board meeting attendee, spoke next. He said, “I was neutral in the matter of a forensic audit, but after reading the nonforensic audit from New York State I’m now in favor of a forensic audit.� He added, “For once and for all let’s get it behind us and move forward.� Trustee William White responded, saying, “The comptroller’s report can be used as a useful tool.� But he added that he took exception with many of the comptroller’s findings. He said that repeatedly putting the call for an RFP for a forensic proposal was simply a political move by the mayor. What began as a silent standoff escalated into a shouting match between Trustee White and the mayor, with village board Trustee Robert Kennedy jumping into the fray shortly after. Accusations of accepted misappropriated funds were slung at both sides. Ms. Pineyro stepped back in to call for some calm as the men overstepped protocol by debating the reason of the departure of a former village employee, a matter of personnel not to be discussed at village meetings. Mayor Hardwick said, “We need a pro to come in. We can’t police ourselves.� He asked, “Why are people so opposed to having a professional come in and tell us what our problems are?� He added, “We have county-level debt here.� Subsequent agenda items were passed without incident and very little discussion. However, with the arrival of the public comment section of the meeting, the forensic audit was being debated again.

Ms. Pineyro then addressed Mrs. Skates. “I have done my research, very extensive, and read the comptroller’s report again and again,� Ms. Pineyro said. She said she would like the proposal, its language and scope, to be formally discussed at the upcoming August 6 village board meeting. Mrs. Skates thanked Ms. Pineyro for her response.

Other concerns brought forward • One resident said the noise level on the Nautical Mile was still unacceptable.

He said while the decibel level limit of 55 or 65, depending on the time of day, might not be being violated, it is still too loud. • Resident Debbie Wilson asked as a recent victim of crime that her yearly fee of $100 for crime protection be waived. Mr. Hardwick said it was not in his power to waive such a fee, but if she wrote a letter to the board it could be motioned on in the communications category of the village board meeting.

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

The last frontier A man on his boat can thumb his nose at his boss, escape a nagging wife for a bit and head for the open seas. The feeling of freedom is huge. But the truth is that the sea is tougher than any boss and less forgiving than any wife. A captain of a boat needs to know what he is doing. These days, many experienced boaters are leary of going out on welltraveled waterways because there are too many reckless and inexperienced boaters around. The situation must be much like it was back over a hundred years ago around here. No longer was it just Mr. Vanderbilt who was racing down his especially constructed motorway with his friends. More and more Sunday motorists were heading out to Coney Island and the Rockaways. It was time for traffic signals, and driver’s licenses. Many people have come to the conclusion that boaters need licenses now too. Several recent tragedies on local waters have reinforced this position. State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo Jr. of Merrick will be introducing a bill to require safety training for anyone who operates a boat. Boaters will be required to provide proof of completing a boating safety course when they register or reregister their boats. That captain’s cap will signify the person in charge really does know his or her stuff. The law will also will ensure that he or she is sober. Laws regarding boating under the influence will more closely mirror those regarding driving under the influence, with increased penalties for driving drunk with a child onboard. Offenses for operating a motor vehicle, boat or snowmobile under the influence will be linked together in determining penalties for repeat alcohol abuse offenders. Driving privileges will be suspended for boating offenders and vice versa. Believe it or not, there are boaters out there in the dark who do not know that in between the green light and red light ahead lies a boat. Some are sober, some are not. But for their own sake and the sake of those onboard that boat ahead they need to know.

INSPIRATION, a new Grand Avenue business, offeres books, cards and gifts to the Baldwin community.

New Grand Avenue store inspires A new retail store called Inspiration is the latest addition to Grand Avenue in Baldwin. The store offers a wide selection of inspirational books, cards and gifts. Inspiration is owned by Tom Brady, Edward Rios and Mary Weidman. All three managers are local Christians who attend the same church and have come together to create their own business. The store specializes in Christian products, but offers other nonreligious products. “We started out calling ourselves a Christian book store but I think that it’s become more than that,” explained Mr. Rios. “The things that aren’t religious are of the inspirational nature. We have a lot of garden and wall decorations that aren’t necessarily Christian but are nice to look at,” said Mr. Brady The store also sells greeting cards, artistic candles and jewelry created by local artists. “We went to a few craft fairs and we found people to make these handmade items and we just asked them if they wanted to showcase them in our store,” Mr. Brady said. In addition, the store sells “The Show Dog” children’s book series by Baldwin resident Dianne Baumann-Corrado. Inside the store is a small sitting area where Mr. Brady says, “People can

come in, have a drink of water or coffee and just relax.” The owners wanted to help inspire people, whether through faith or lifestyle improvement. “It’s definitely about community,” said Ms. Weidman. “We wanted to help create a store to inspire people. There’s really no other way to put it. You walk up and down the streets and you have ‘cash-for gold’ places and liquor stores and that kind of thing,” said Mr. Brady. “We want to do something different, something we can be proud of and something that the Baldwin community can enjoy shopping at,” he continued. The store is walking distance from three Baldwin churches: First Church Baldwin United Methodist, St. Christopher’s Parish Church and St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church. Inspiration opened last month. The owners plan to have a grand opening event sometime in the next month through the Baldwin Civics Association. Inspiration is at 2419 Grand Avenue. The official hours are MondaySaturday, 10 p.m.-6 p.m. For information, you can go to the website at Arielle Martinez will be a senior at Baldwin High School and is editor of her school newspaper. She is interning at The Leader.

clean, renewable energy that leaves no carbon footprint. The goal of the Energy Park is to educate the public, demonstrate how to get clean, renewable energy, and research new energy ideas. “We want the Town of Hempstead Energy Park to serve as a living classroom for our community for people of all ages,” Ms. Murray said. Just last month, the Town of Hempstead won an Environmental Protection Agency award in New York City. “We won an EPA award for our cutting-edge energy park,” said Supervisor Murray. The park was nominated by federal authorities, which is a great achievement, Ms. Murray said, and the EPA award reinforces the town’s commitment to providing clean, renewable energy to its residents. While the wind turbine is the only part of Energy Park that can be seen from the Loop Parkway, the park has other parts to it as well. It features a shellfish nursery where clams are grown. After growing in the nursery, they are moved to a flupsie, where they grow at a faster rate, which increases capacity. Some eight million clams are now grown at the facility and planted into Hempstead Bay each year, in late October. The park contains buildings covered entirely with solar panels, and the New York Institute of Technology engineering department created and built an energy house located in the park. Also at the park are hydrogen-fueled cars. After taking a ride in one, it is amazing how quiet the car is and how similar it is to a regular

When Kate Murray was elected Town of Hempstead Supervisor nine years ago, the Town of Hempstead Energy Park was nothing but dirt on the side of the road. She had ideas to provide the town with clean, renewable energy, and she hoped that her ideas would come to life. Now, they have. Who knew that clean, renewable energy was just a breeze away? Since January, the wind turbine at the Town of Hempstead Energy Park in Point Lookout has been relying on strong ocean winds to provide clean, free energy. Since the wind turbine was installed in January, 128,000 kilowatt hours have been generated, which is enough to power 14 average homes for an entire year. “This surpassed our expectations,” said Town of Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray, “It is more kilowatt hours then we were expecting.” Energy Park is an ideal place for the wind turbine because of its proximity to the ocean, and because of strong winds off the seashore. It also fits well with the town’s various clean and renewable energy projects, such as solar paneled buildings and a shellfish nursery. The wind turbine cost $680,000 to build, and was primarily funded by a grant through the federal Department of Energy. “Few dollars came out of our budget,” said Supervisor Murray, “and it is amazing the resources we were provided with.” The wind turbine provides

car. “This car drives like a regular car, but it is better for the environment,” said Ron Masters, commissioner of conservation and waterways for the Town of Hempstead. “It is very quiet when running, and two kilograms of gas last for 150 miles.” All of the energy needed to produce the compressed gas is provided by the wind turbine. Because the hydrogen gas machine contains no liquids, it is safer to use than traditional gasoline used for cars. The energy park is the first and only hydrogen-fueling station on Long Island. The public has been supportive of the wind turbine and park, said Supervisor Murray. “Whenever there are environmental press conferences held at the Town of Hempstead Energy Park,” she said, “members of the Lido Beach Civic Association and Point Lookout Civic Association are always there supporting us and our work.” The town holds solar seminars seven

times a year throughout the community. “With the increasing oil prices over the last few years,” said Supervisor Murray, “residents are more interested in how they can use solar energy in their homes and small businesses.” The solar seminars feature experts on solar energy, as well as Long Island Power Authority officials, and Town of Hempstead officials. The seminars enable residents to ask professionals to help them make an informed decision about some energy source they are thinking of using. “It is important to educate our residents, that way they can be green stewards,” Ms. Murray said. In the future, she hopes to be able to provide more ways that the town can use clean energy. “The federal government has the Town of Hempstead in its sights,” she said, “and we hope to grow and expand our clean energy sources.” She encourages all Town of Hempstead residents to visit the Energy Park to see everything the town is doing to help protect the environment.

National Night Out August 2 Legislator David Denenberg, the Village of Freeport, Freeport and Nassau County Police Departments, Freeport Neighborhood Watch and the North, Central and South Merrick Community Civic Associations will host National Night Out on Tuesday, August 2, from 6 to 10 p.m. at Cow Meadow Park, at the end of South Main Street in

Freeport. More than 11,000 communities across the country observe the annual National Night Out. The event includes food, entertainment, vendors and information booths to provide an enjoyable evening while raising awareness of crime, gang activity and violence and forming community partnerships with law enforcement agencies.

TOH wind turbine blowing clean energy our way

by Laura Amante, Carissa Gagliardi, Arielle Martinez and Leah Sobel A stormy day did not stop four Leader interns from enjoying a delicious lunch at Rachel’s Waterside Grill on the Nautical Mile, part of the new Freeport Water Taxi route. They were greeted by Rich Venticinque, one of the owners, and Leticia Polanco, a manager, who provided delicious samplings of their menu and an opportunity to learn more about Rachel’s Waterside Grill. Rachel’s Waterside Grill has been open for 16 years, and is busiest on summer weekends. It’s known for its seafood, such as lobster sliders, tuna nachos and baked clams. This restaurant

has a causal and comfortable atmosphere. “It is a family friendly place,” said Ms. Polanco. Upon entering the restaurant, there is a perfect mix of comfort and luxury, from the décor to the courteous staff. The wall of windows onto the wide canal gives each customer a beautiful view of the bay. A lovely painting of the beach that goes around the perimeter – and the brightness from the picture windows – gives the restaurant a cheerful ambience. Seating outside is also offered, and lights above the tables glow brightly at night. Even though this establishment is kidfriendly (they are each given a children’s menu and crayons), the top-shelf food is sophisticated and upscale. Because of its (continued on page 15)

Police reports come from law enforcement agencies. Suspects are presumed innocent unless and until convicted in court. First Squad detectives are investigating an auto accident in which a pedestrian was struck in Baldwin on Thursday, July 19, at 7:43 p.m. According to detectives, a 2002 Jeep operated by a male driver, 54, struck an 84year-old male jogger, while backing out of his driveway on Bertha Drive. The victim, when struck by the car, fell and hit his head on the pavement. A Nassau police ambulance transported the victim, who suffered a serious head injury, to a local hospital. He is listed in critical condition. Nassau County Highway Patrol responded to the scene and performed a breathalyzer test on the driver, which yielded negative results. Brake and safety checks were also performed on the vehicle at the scene. Detectives report no apparent criminality

involved in the accident. uuu The Baldwin-based First Squad reports a Robbery that occurred on July 19 at p.m. in Baldwin. According to detectives, the 16-year-old male victim was walking in the rear of a building on Atlantic Avenue when he was approached by three unknown men. The men told the victim to give them what he had, the victim attempted to walk away. One robber pushed the victim, pulled out a knife and demanded the victim’s cellular telephone. The victim complied and the three robbers fled northbound from the scene. One is described as black, 5’8”, slim build, short hair wearing a blue Yankees baseball cap and armed with a knife. No injuries were reported. Detectives request anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.

from page 8 casual atmosphere, Rachel’s is a great place for Sunday morning brunch or a celebration lunch with a big family, since they also cater parties. Fishing limitations affect restaurants Restrictions on clamming and fishing are affecting restaurants all along the Nautical Mile. With the bays closed to clammers, restaurants that depend on clams, such as Rachel’s, have been forced to acquire clams elsewhere. Mr. Venticinque said Rachel’s gets its clams from Virginia, but mollusks from these warmer southern waters have a shorter shelf life compared to the 3-4 day shelf life of Long Island clams. “Long Island clams are the best clams,” said Mr. Venticinque. Fishing regulations have also limited the number of catches that are allowed. This forces Rachel’s to buy product from other countries and out of local areas. “It drives the prices up,” said Mr. Venticinque, “but it has not affected business.”

The lobster sliders were simple but delectable sandwiches. The housemade lobster salad was served sloppy Joe-style on hamburger buns. The lobster sliders were made up of lobster salad, corn chow-chow and potato salad served on toasted potato slider rolls. It’s hard to get enough of this delicious sandwich. Rachel’s stir fried calamari put a different twist on a classic anytime appetizer. The fried calamari was served with a sweet teriyaki dipping sauce. The calamari itself was a bit chewy, but still you’ll be back for more. The calamari was served with a teriyaki dipping sauce rather than the more common marinara sauce, making this appetizer a distinct variation of a common seafood dish. The chili-seared ahi tuna is one of Rachel’s most popular entrée dishes. This dish was prepared rare, with a wasabi potato spring roll, marinated seaweed salad, fried leeks and a wasabi lime drizzle. This spicy rare tuna is great for anyone who enjoys a spicy kick with his or her food.

Seafood review Presentation of the dishes was impressive, and the decent-sized portions won’t leave you hungry and are worth the price. The marinated seafood martini is a cool and refreshing lunch appetizer menu item. The shrimp “martini” was a saladlike appetizer, made with shrimp and mussels on top of strips of bell peppers served in a martini glass. The shrimp and vegetables made a fresh and flavorful combination and the glassware gave the dish a pleasing appearance.

Sunset cruise Starting this year, Rachel’s Waterside Grill organized a partnership with the Freeport Water Taxi to form a wine and cheese cruise. This event began in June and is expected to continue “for as long as people want it to,” said Mr. Venticinque. The taxi sets sail every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. and costs $29.95 per person. On the tour, wine, cheese, crackers, desserts and fruit will be served to each guest. The cruise, which runs for an hour-and-a-half, gives its customers

great views of the sunset and the perfect time to spend with family and friends. Rachel’s menu changes two or three times a year, and it changes to celebrate big events such as Octoberfest and Big Fat Tuesday with special menus. “Everything we do is fresh, every day,” said Mr. Venticinque. “We have seafood coming in seven days a week. It’s all about quality.” Rachel’s Waterside Grill is a top-shelf seafood restaurant that is sure to please the whole family. Rachel’s is on the Nautical Mile at 281 Woodcleft Avenue, Freeport.

THE SHRIMP “MARTINI” was a salad-like appetizer, made with shrimp and mussels on top of strips of bell peppers ser ved in a mar tini glass.

ENTERTAINING LIFE Warped tour 2012 satisfies by Danielle Sopchak Vans Warped Tour 2012 has it all. From death metal to rap, this concert can satisfy any music listener’s needs. This Saturday, the tour took over Nassau Coliseum parking lot and fans sang and danced for a total of nine hours in the surprisingly cool 76- degree weather. This year’s version of the Vans Clothing-sponsored tour featured two widely known Long Island bands, Patent Pending and Taking Back Sunday. Fans from the bands’ early, local stages were able to enjoy songs from old as well as new CDs. “I believe there’s a particular kind of love that hometown audiences can send back to and feel for a band,” said Logan Mazzara, 19, of Levittown. Patent Pending, originally from Mt. Sinai, New York, performed on the Ernie Ball Stage at 4:05 p.m. The crowd was not only rows deep, but also two leveled. Fans hung and sat on trees surrounding the stage just to see the band. “They make any song uplifting and happy,” said Chris Lauletti, 19, of Wantagh. Taking Back Sunday, Rockville Centre natives, headlined the 17th annual tour. They ended the nine-hour day on the Kia Soul main stage starting at 7:50 p.m. with “El Paso,” a song from their newest self-titled album. The moment sound came out of the speakers, fans pushed forward towards the barricade, pinning any concertgoer under 5 feet, 5 inches for the rest of the set. The energy among the fans was clearly palpable. Crowd surfers didn’t stop until after Taking Back Sunday was well off of the stage. The center of the crowd opened up mosh pits for every song. Fans looked as if they had literally gone insane. “Personally, knowing that TBS is from Long Island makes me super protective of them. I would say that we’re all pretty proud we can call Taking Back Sunday our own,” said Ms. Mazzara. The sets weren’t the only exciting events. Patent Pending and Taking Back Sunday both held signings earlier on in the day. What keeps these Long Island bands succeeding is not just their incredible sound, but also the way that they relate to their fans. Patent Pending’s lead singer, Joe Ragosta, hung around his band’s merchandise tent for most of the day. He greeted fans, signed autographs and took pictures with every person who asked. Patent Pending’s latest album, “Second Family,” refers to all of their fans. Their second family is every person who believes in their success and is willing to continue supporting the band’s dream.

ADAM LAZZARA of Taking Back Sunday.

“The thing is, the coolest part about Patent Pending is they’re genuine people that want to talk to you. They don’t hold themselves in a spotlight. They’re on the same playing level as you,” says Mr. Lauletti. Taking Back Sunday signings are more than just a signing for some longtime fans. It’s an opportunity to connect with the band members on a more personal level. Melissa Jones, an eight-year fan, used that opportunity to give Taking Back Sunday a letter because she “felt that writing to them would be the best way to tell them how much their music has impacted” her life. Later that night Ms. Jones received a response back via Twitter from band member Shaun telling her the letter was “touching.” For Ms. Jones, it “just really shows how dedicated and appreciative they are to their fans.” “The Long Island music scene is one of the tightest. Every band supports another. Bands work their way up from the bottom. Big bands are like parent bands; they sup-

Danielle Sopchak will be a sophomore at the University of Tampa where she studies English. She is a MacArthur High School graduate.
