Public hearing on redistricting map February 25 by Laura Schofer
The Nassau County Legislature will hold a hearing on Monday, February 25, 10 a.m. so that the public may comment on the proposed map that will determine legislative districts. The process, called redistricting, refers to the redrawing of legislative districts to reflect changing population as revealed in the latest census. Maps are required to be redrawn every 10 years. The proposed map passed by the legislature’s Rules Committee last week, was an amended version of the Republican map first unveiled to the public at the January 3 Nassau County temporary redistricting commission hearing. The Rules Committee voted along party lines 4-3 for the amended Republican map which, if approved, will move about 359,173 voters out of their present legislative district. However, the previous map proposed by the Republican delegation would have moved about 600,000 residents.

While the new proposed map restores some legislative districts including the Great Neck peninsula, residents in Freeport will remain in two legislative districts – Legislative District 5, represented by Joseph Scanell, and Legislative District 19 which would have no incumbent if the proposed plan goes through. Presently, Legislator David Denenberg of Merrick represents Legislative District 19. Baldwin would remain in Legislative District 5. In Freeport and Baldwin Voters who live south of Merrick Road in Freeport will be in Legislative District 19 along with residents of central and south Merrick, Bellmore and Wantagh. The newly proposed Legislative District 19 has no incumbent. The former Legislative District 19 was represented by Legislator Denenberg. However a small piece of central Merrick, where Mr. Denenberg lives has been drawn into the newly proposed Legislative District 5,

now represented by Mr. Scannell. The rest of Freeport will be in Legislative District 5, along with all of Baldwin. Winners and losers The proposed new map places three sets of legislators into the same district. Two of these districts have Democratic incumbents – Mr. Denenberg and Mr. Scanell, here on the South Shore; Democrats Wayne Wink and Delia DeReggi-Whitton in northern Nassau County and Republicans Joseph Belesi and Michael Venditto in southeastern Nassau County. More than 30 people signed up to speak at last week’s Rules Committee, hearing according to Jessica Tauber, David Denenberg’s Chief of Staff. Members of the Nassau United Redistricting Coalition, a group of nonpartisan community groups, spoke against the plan and raised concerns about the disenfranchisement of minority communities. Peter Rosenthal, a member of the

League of Women Voters and the Nassau United Redistricting Coalition said, “The map being proposed here today is a kaleidoscope of colors with only one true purpose – to rig the electoral process by packing members of one party in Nassau County into as few districts as possible. It seeks to crush democracy under the power of one political party for the next decade. Remember, you are elected to represent all of the people of Nassau County.” But Francis Moroney, Republican spokesman for the proposed plan, told The Leader the final map was very much like the map “they [Nassau United Redistricting Coalition] submitted. I guess it has to do with pride of ownership,” said Mr. Moroney. “Clearly [they] have not analyzed the map,” he said referring to accusations of violating the federal Voting Rights Act. “There is only a small deviation of 4.8%, not nearly as much as their map which had a deviation of 9.85% and pools people into certain districts.” (continued on page 3)

A Freeport man has pleaded guilty to stealing a Hicksville resident’s vehicle at gunpoint and then intentionally crashing into a police vehicle after officers had trapped him in an elementary school parking lot, Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice announced Friday. Remick Menjivar, 19, pleaded guilty Friday morning to Robbery and Assault in exchange for a promised prison sentence of 14 years from Judge William Donnino. The DA’s office advocated for a 20-year prison sentence. He will be sentenced on March 15. DA Rice said that just before noon on March 20, 2012, Menjivar and another man, Edwin Flores, 21, of Hicksville, approached a man standing in the driveway of his Ohio Street home in Hicksville. Mr. Menjivar pulled out a black 9mm Republic Arms semi-automatic handgun and demanded the victim’s keys, wallet, and cell phone. He then got into the victim’s 2006 Infiniti
Donald Henry Schultz
G35 and fled the scene, followed by Flores in a black 2011 Toyota Corolla. Responding police officers from the Nassau County Police Department’s Second Precinct and Bureau of Special Operations soon located the stolen Infiniti and attempted to pull Mr. Menjivar over. Mr. Menjivar attempted to evade officers and pulled into the parking lot of the Fayette Elementary School on Merrick Avenue in North Merrick. Menjivar, trapped in a parking lot with only one exit, accelerated at an approaching police car and crashed head-on into it and then into the school building. He tried to flee after the crash but was immediately apprehended. Several officers were injured, one of whom suffered a serious head injury. Flores was located and arrested in Freeport. The Corolla he was driving had been stolen during a March 16, 2012 carjacking in Bellerose. Mr. Flores pleaded guilty to Robbery last month and is awaiting sentencing.
Nassau police arrested three Freeport men for an attempted burglary that occurred on February 13 at 2:54 a.m. in Massapequa. According to detectives, Seventh Precinct plainclothes officers, after a notification was broadcast regarding a cellphone store burglary that occurred in Suffolk County, began checking similar locations in the Massapequa area. At 2:54 a.m. they came upon two men who were at the front glass window of the AT&T store on Sunrise Highway. The officers approached the suspects,

who then fled from the scene on foot. After a foot pursuit, both were apprehended without further incident. A third suspect, who was found to be inside a parked car near the store, was also placed under arrest without incident. Observed inside the vehicle were the proceeds from the burglary that occurred in Suffolk County. Kareem Edney, 20, of Rutland Road, Valon Vailes, 20, and Sterling Green, 20, both of Commercial Street, are charged with Attempted Burglary and Criminal Possession of Stolen Property.

from page 1 Legislators Norma Gonsalves, Howard Kopel Dennis Dunne and Rose Marie Walker, all Republicans, voted in favor of the map; Kevan Abrahams, Judy Jacobs and Wayne Wink voted against the map. But people remain unhappy. After the Rules Committee voted, a number of residents stood up and sang “We Shall Overcome.” On Mr. Denenberg’s Facebook page, resident Linda Kaplan expressed outrage over the new map that could displace Mr. Denenberg from his district. “If you can’t win an election on your
merit then you do something to steal it the next time. Redistricting so that voters become disenfranchised is odious,” she wrote. “We should sue all the way to the Supreme Court. Our civil rights are being violated.” However, Mr. Moroney has repeatedly said the map was drawn “blind to incumbency.” The full Legislature must vote on the map no later than Tuesday, March 5. The February 25 hearing is the last time residents will have an opportunity to voice their opinions on the map. There are 10 Republicans and nine Democrats. A simple majority is needed to pass the new proposed map.
Chinese New Year at Columbus “ ‘Gung Hay Fat Choy’ means ‘Happy New Year’ in Chinese,” students enthusiastically repeated at a special assembly at the Columbus Avenue Early Childhood Education Center in Freeport. The children were celebrating the beginning of the astrological Year of the Snake on the Chinese calendar with a mid-morning parade that included a golden dragon, the symbol of strength and goodness. Before the assembly, the students created paper lanterns, headdresses and
other craft projects to display during the festivities. Art teacher Susan Warren, who presided over the special assembly, worked with the students to create their celebratory props. The celebration continued at lunch break when the children were invited to taste a sampling of traditional ChineseAmerican foods ordered from a local restaurant, including flavored chicken and beef, spare ribs, fried rice, steamed broccoli, egg rolls, noodles and fortune cookies.
Lockout in Freeport schools Freeport High School was under “lockout” Tuesday morning. Freeport Assistant Superintendent Mike Singleton said a secretary at the high school received a call from an anonymous male between 8 and 8:30 a.m. The caller threatened to “come to the high school and shoot the place up.” Freeport police were called and the high school was immediately placed under lockdown. As a precautionary measure principals of the other district schools were called and told to go into lockdown. As a part of routine procedures, the Baldwin School District was called and notified of the situation in

In other matters, the board: • Approved three budget transfers totalling $5,100. When a resident asked for further details (and where the money came from), Dr. Kuncham gave a lengthy explanation on this subject. He explained that the budget “is not a sacred document,” and that line items are set months before the money is actually used. Therefore, some lines are slightly over- or underspent, and budget transfers are used to even the overages and underages out. • Two scholarships were accepted “with gratitude” $250 from Millennium Honda and $3,000 for the resumption of the Blanck Family Scholarship. • Approved student travel through upstate New York from February 21-23 for the purpose of a college tour for students to visit SUNY New Paltz, Binghamton, Cortland, Union College and Syracuse. • Approved an agreement with Hofstra University to hold the 2013 Commencement at the Mack Sports Complex on June 26. • Approved consulting contracts: with Cell Motion Laboratories for hands-on science activities, iTutor for online tutoring. Dr. Kuncham explained that the contracts will be paid for with grants and will come at no additional cost to taxpayers.

The Freeport school board meeting of February 13 included a budget report, though Superintendent Dr. Kishore Kuncham reported “not much action” on the budget since the February 6 meeting, but the beginning of massive lobbying effort – for pension stabilization and against the reduction in high tax aid and the gap elimination adjustment, which results in less aid. The district is facing a $4.8 million budget gap, as increases in pensions, healthcare, special ed, transportation and other costs will result in an expenditure increase of $8.8 million, an amount only partially offset by increased aid and the allowable tax levy increase. The district has identified over $4 million in possible expenditure cuts, which would include program and staff cutbacks. Another concern cited by Dr. Kuncham is possible losses in federal funding under the automatic federal budget cuts (the “sequester”) scheduled to take place on March 1. When asked when an actual copy of the budget would be available, Dr. Kuncham replied that, with too many items still in flux, more details would be available at the budget hearing on March 7 at Atkinson. In the meanwhile, attendees were urged to contact their representatives in Albany and support their schools. In his report, Dr. Kuncham also noted that another item would be on the May
ballot: A capital reserve fund expenditure for security upgrades, a new boiler at Dodd, and bathroom and ceiling repairs systemwide, at no additional cost to taxpayers.

Freeport. The lockout was lifted at noon. Freeport Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kishore Kuncham released the following statement: “Earlier this morning the district received an anonymous threat at the high school. As a precautionary measure, all buildings in the district were immediately placed on lockout and the Freeport Police Department was contacted. It has been determined that there is no immediate threat to students and staff so the lockout has been lifted. The police are continuing their investigation and the district is cooperating with them.”

The community newspaper - the glue that helps hold a community together, and the spur that helps keep it moving forward.
It’s Black History Month Black History Month is halfway over, but it is not too late to stop and reflect on the achievements of African Americans, who have contributed so much more to American culture, economy and indeed our national identity than their numbers would indicate. In fact, the African American heritage is shared by all Americans. Did you know there was a fort north of St. Augustine, Florida, called Fort Moses where beginning in 1687 many slaves from the British colonies escaped to the first free community of ex-slaves in what is now the United States? Have you heard about the “Underground Railroad”? This route of “safe houses” led from states where slavery ruled north to Canada. Part of this route was right through the Bellmores. New York City had the largest number of slaves after Charleston, South Carolina, and the Quakers in Westbury were among the first to speak out against slavery. Many Long Islanders fought in the Civil War which resulted in freedom for African American slaves. Freeporter Ed Monroe was among the Tuskegee Airmen, the all-black fighter group who served with distinction starting during World War II. The Freedom Riders, who traveled to the deep South to demonstrate for civil rights for African Americans, included many Long Islanders. Civil rights demonstrators also lost their lives in Freeport. Jackie Robinson was the first African American to play for a major league baseball team, the Brooklyn Dodgers. Hale Smith of Freeport was a legendary composer who helped shape American jazz. Freeporter Fred Brewington won a one-man onevote case that replaced the at-large Hempstead Town Board with district representatives. One of the plaintiffs, Dorothy Goosby still serves with distinction as one of those town board members. Andrew Hardwick is the first African American mayor of Freeport. And, of course, our recently re-elected President Barack Obama is an African American. Almost everyone can remember what they were doing the day he first took office, a proud moment in American history.
A SPECIAL VISITOR AT DE LA SALLE: Elijah Miller, a member of Da La Salle School’s first class, dropped by for a surprise visit last week. He is a 2010 graduate of Freeport High School and is now employed full time by AHRC in Freeport as an activities coach. The photo shows him speaking with Kevin Rall, director of the Graduate Support Program. In response to a question about the impact of his De La Salle School experience, Mr. Miller said, “I came to this school a rebel and I left a gentleman.”

by Arielle Martinez The grand opening of the Baldwin Winter Farmers’ Market was held on Saturday, February 16. The market, which is the only one of its kind in Nassau County, is run by G&G Long Island Farmers’ Markets and sponsored by the Baldwin Civic Association. The farmers’ market hosted not only local fresh produce but a variety of products from businesses all over Long Island. Monty Breads, a family-owned bread bakery from Islip Terrace, offered specialty breads. Naturally Handmade by Susan, a business from Franklin Square, sold all natural soaps and other beauty products without the use of plastic packaging, preservatives, or parabens. Gentle Brew Coffee, a Long Beachbased coffee roasting company, was also present. Vegan and organic cookies and pas-
tries were sold by the Sweet To Lick Bakery from Westbury. Jessy’s Bakery from East Rockaway offered Peruvian delicacies such as alfajores and empanadas. Shoppers were able to purchase home-baked all-natural dog treats from Little Lexi’s Barkery, preservative-free cooking stocks from The New York Stock Company, and pickles from Horman’s Best Pickles. David Viana, the president of the Baldwin Civic Association, spoke about working with G&G Long Island Farmers’ Markets: “We’ve been trying for a while to get a farmers’ market here in Baldwin. One of our goals is to bring new businesses to Baldwin.” The Baldwin Winter Farmers’ Market will take place every Saturday until April 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., in the American Legion Hall at 2754 Grand Avenue, Baldwin, south of Merrick Road.
BUSINESSES ALL OVER LONG ISLAND promoted their wares at the Baldwin Farmers’ Market, including William Frisscheisen, co-owner of New York Stock Company, top left; Nicky of Bambino’s Ravioli, on right of bottom left photo; and Susan Linares of Naturally Handmade by Susan, from Franklin Square.

(Michael Desir) has to cope with the carnivorous Audrey II in the J.W. Dodd Middle School production of “Little Shop of Horrors.”
‘Little Shop’ at Dodd The John W. Dodd Middle School Drama Club firmly planted their cleverly staged “Little Shop of Horrors” in the high school auditorium for a one-night performance last month that showcased the many talents of Freeport students. Director/producer Robyn Workman and facilitator/choreographer Vashti Burke spent countless hours with the students rehearsing and adapting the script, music and choreography to present the
finest production possible in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. “It was not easy to stay committed,” said Ms. Workman. “Many of our cast members were displaced. They voted unanimously to forge ahead given the option.” This musical production was based on the Ashman/Menken Broadway collaboration that was inspired by the Roger Corman film of the same name written by Charles Griffith.
A security proposal
and perpetual solution is to train and arm volunteer school employees, preferably males who can better protect their guns from another male or females. Females must be equipped with small calibre pistols for controlled accuracy, preferably .22 or .32 calibre. Every physically able school employee must undergo physical defense training, regardless of sex.
To The Leader: On January 9 I submitted to our Freeport school board a perfect security plan to prevent possible armed psycho assaults, from within or without. A socially and politically acceptable alternative would soon collapse financially or from boredom. The only practical
Clothing worn by armed employees must keep weapons, even pepper spray, etc., hidden from view as much as possible; but not unknown. Combination safes in schools and at homes are essential. Non-event monotony must be overcome with occasional exercises like fire drills. As a corolary, handleg intelligently, armed personnel may garner more
respect from certain belligerent kids. This strategy will assure confidence among parents, staff and students and will endure as long as it remains free of union opportunity. The current plan of locking glass classroom doors and unarmed guard exacts a longer-term price in inconvenience and payroll with less security. Let’s move! Alan Jay

He discussed the music and theory behind the pieces that would be performed, which were all Beethoven. “Students even helped in composing their own unique melody, said Mr. Greer. “It was an extremely enriching experience.”

Their warm yet commanding stage presence, combined with great music, always captivates the audience. Engaging and delightful, the Borealis brings a fresh sound and an exciting program to each performance. They are recognized for their fundamental contributions to the wind quintet literature with their many commissions, recordings, and editions of rare and traditional music. The Grammy-nominated ensemble has earned a well-deserved reputation for giving performances with great artis-
tic expression, musical integrity and technical virtuosity. The choice of repertoire reflects the group’s artistic personality and their enjoyment of performing. Peter G. Davies of the New York Times described one concert as “a polished, elegantly turned performance…each work received lively, expert and musicianly treatment by this skilled and exceptionally talented chamber group.” Individual tickets may be purchased for $20 at the door on the night of the concert and only $5 for children under 18. Credit cards are not accepted. You can call Marc Josloff for further information at 223-7659.

LEO F. GIBLYN SCHOOL located on South Ocean Avenue in Freeport recently held a Valentines for Vets event. From left, top row, are first grade teachers Christa Vetack and Mamiett Tucker, Hempstead Town Councilwoman Angie Cullin of Freeport, first grade teacher Lauren Chimeri and Assistant Principal Clorinda Pawlak, with Giblyn School students.
The Hempstead Town Board voted to hire a consulting firm to assist in the creation of new district lines for the six councilmembers. Skyline Demographic Consultants, Inc. was hired to gather demographic information that will be used to redraw the six councilmatic districts within the Town of Hempstead. Councilmen James Darcy, Anthony Santino and Gary Hudes voted in favor of the resolution at Tuesday’s town board meeting. Councilman Edward Ambrosino, Councilwomen Dorothy Goosby and Angie Cullin were not present for the vote. Nine residents spoke on the resolution, urging the town to conduct a fair and transparent process to ensure that all 760,000 town residents are equally represented in the new maps. The councilmatic districts must be redrawn every 10 years as required by federal law. The action must be accomplished in compliance with the law that states that the councilmatic districts should reflect the changing population as revealed in the latest census. The latest federal census shows there is a growing minority population in some parts of the Town of Hempstead,
including Elmont, Valley Stream, Freeport and Baldwin. Bob Young, the Town of Hempstead Democratic Party’s first deputy leader, asked if the town would appoint a bipartisan commission to help draw the map. “No,” replied Hempstead Town Attorney Joseph Ra. “The consultant will gather the demographic information and then the town attorney’s office will draw the maps.” A hearing date or dates will be announced at a future time. Mr. Young urged the Town Board to hold a hearing in each councilmatic district in the evenings, before and after the map was drawn to facilitate public input. Paul Federman inquired about Skyline’s qualifications. Skyline is the same firm used by the Republican majority to draw legislative districts in Nassau. Mr. Ra said Skyline was chosen because “in the opinion of the town attorney’s office they are the best.” One resident said she had concerns that this firm would try to “weaken the power of African Americans.” Another resident urged the town to hire someone “who worked for both the Republicans and the Democrats.” Town Supervisor Kate Murray assured the public the process would be open and fair. “The last time everyone voted in favor of the maps,” she said.
Freeport PBA endorses Kennedy The Freeport Police Benevolent Association announced it has endorsed Robert Kennedy for mayor of Freeport, Carmen Piñeyro and Ron Ellerbe for village trustees and V. Roy Cacciatore for village justice in the March 19 village elections. “On behalf of my running mates, we rec-
ognize and appreciate the dedication and professionalism put forth by the men and women of the Freeport Police Department each and every day in keeping our community safe,” said Mr. Kennedy. “We are honored to receive their endorsement and pledge to continue supporting the outstanding work that they do.”
Benefit at SNUUC Saturday NEW VISIONS SCHOOL on Raynor Street in Freeport recently held a Valentines for Vets event. From left are Councilwoman Angie Cullin, Greta Villahueva, Kim Balan and Principal Renee Crump, surrounded by New Visions students.
South Nassau Unitarian Universalist Congregation (SNUUC) will hold a benefit this Saturday evening, February 23. Ted Tiller and friends have organized an open mic night with refreshments. Admission is $15. All funds go toward defraying costs to help rennovate the bathrooms at SNUCC. The event begins at 7 p.m. at 228 South Ocean Avenue in Freeport.
Ted Tiller, who has organized this event, was recently diagnosed with mitochondrial disease. According to Rita Hines, another congregant, as Mr. Tiller’s disease has progressed his spiritual core has strengthened and he has turned his energies to helping others, including organizing this benefit.
