Freeport school board hears budget update by Mark Treske After holding a 3 1/2 hour meeting at Freeport High School the previous week, the April 4 Freeport school board meeting at Atkinson timed out at just over an hour. But important matters were reported regarding the ongoing process of the 2012-13 budget. Superintendent Dr. Kishore Kuncham reported that the increase in state aid in the newly approved state budget will amount to $784,000 for Freeport. That, combined with the decision to defer $300,000 in revenue until 2012-13, will leave a revenue shortfall of approximately $408,000. District expenditures are now $1,534,707 (or 1.08%) more than 2011-12, a figure including the cutbacks announced during the previous meeting. This would result in a tax levy increase of approximately $1.943 mil-

lion, fitting the budget under the stateimposed tax cap (as a percentage, the rise would be 2.37%, but still under the cap, as some expenditures are exempt.) The board will vote on the budget at its next meeting on Tuesday, April 17, at Archer Street School, at 7:30 p.m. Dr. Kuncham also anounced that Summer Arts Academy would continue through grant money, and that $200,000 from the capital reserve fund would be used to maintain Secondary Summer School, albeit in a modified form. As regards the cuts announced at the March 28 meeting, there was news to report there as well. The Freeport Teachers Association has persented the district with a new proposal, which the district has accepted, regarding the deferral of salary increases. The FTA will vote on the proposal on April 16.

Dr. Kuncham said that FTA approval of the proposal would restore “lots of things” including 11 teaching positions (10 secondary, one elementary) from the February budget cuts. Elementary enrichment and full-day kindergarten, would be returned through restoration of the teaching positions required for them. Board President Debra McQuillan was particularly pleased at the restoration of summer school, and thanked the FTA for reconsidering its position. Superintendent Kuncham seconded this, although warning those in attendance that union support of the proposal would only provide relief for 201213, since state funding was already largely set for 2013-14 and major changes were not expected. Dr. Kuncham concluded that difficult budgeting could be expected beyond this year.

Public comment Robin Workman asked for clarification regarding summer school restoration, as well as what would happen if the budget was voted down. Dr. Kuncham explained another change in the process – if the budget is defeated, no increases at all will be allowed, and another $1.9 million would have to be cut, calling for possible loss of clubs, athletics and other teaching positions. A student named Michael bemoaned the loss of positions for accelerated programs, and urged the board to allow students to “keep it at a higher bar.” Board President McQuillan concluded by telling the meeting that “communication is the key” between now and the April 17 vote, and that the district and board were ready to provide accurate information regarding all budget related issues.

and Seaford. The study made these determinations by using the National Elevation Dataset (NED), a product of the U.S. Geological Survey. It is also based on two published peer-reviewed studies that includes a national analysis of sea level rise in 20 years. The papers can be found at www.surgingseas.org/papers. Even small amounts of sea level rise will make rare floods more common, said the report. Analyzed data prepared by Climate Central indicates that the odds of a 100-year flood by 2030 will increase by 26% in the state because of global warming. A 100-year flood is one so high it would historically be seen with only 1% or less chance per year. “Critically, a small change can make a big difference, like the last inch of water that overflows a tub,” reads the report. “Sea level rise is raising the launch pad for storms and high tides, and [is] being experienced by the ever-

Sea levels may rise by 13 inches in Nassau County by 2050, making rare floods more common by adding to tides and storm surges, asserts a new report called “Surging Seas,” issued by Climate Central, a nonprofit journalism and research organization. The report, issued last month, states that global warming has already raised the sea level about eight inches since 1880, and the rate of rise is accelerating. Nassau County has the largest exposed population in New York State living on land less than four feet above the local high tide line. The state ranks number four in the country for exposure to rising sea levels and floods. Locally, the most vulnerable communities include Long Beach, Oceanside, Freeport, Massapequa, Copiague, Woodmere, Baldwin Harbor, Merrick

more frequent occurrence of extreme high water levels during these events.” While the state Department of Environmental Conservation doesn’t provide exact figures, it agrees that sea level rise and coastal flooding from storm surge will increase. A report issued by the DEC in 2010 states “sea level rise will cause all shoreline ecosystems to become more frequently inundated.” According to “Surging Seas,” these increases are likely to cause an enormous amount of damage and, locally, could effect 33,100 homes or 76,884 people. FEMA working aggressively The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) estimates that disaster aid caused by floods from Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee in 2011 will top $1.3 billion in the state. “These were huge storms, which caused unprecedented damage to communities across the state,” said FEMA’s Federal Coordinating Officer Philip E. Parr. “FEMA continues to work aggressively to help these communities rebuild.” During the height of the response

effort last year, 895 FEMA employees were working on the two disasters. FEMA has approved a total of 33,073 registrations for individual assistance providing more than $155 million for housing grants, rental assistance, home repair costs and their disaster-related needs. Additionally 14,089 claims worth $417,002,602 have been paid under the National Flood Insurance Programs for both disasters. To address these concerns the state Legislature created the Sea Level Rise Task Force in 2007 and charged it with preparing a report that addresses these issues, including recommendations for an action plan to protect coastal communities and natural resources from rising sea levels. The Task Force has made 12 recommendations to prepare for the future. “The responses needed to protect communities from the threat posed by sea level rise will take time, and now that the challenges are better understood, government is obligated to protect its citizens while there is time to do so effectively,” reads the DEC report.

Copper-Aluminum Single Replacement Reaction.” Anooshqa Bazmi‘s project, entitled “The Effect of Mercury Absorption on Plant Growth and Development,” garnered third place. Over $5,000 in cash and gift certificates was raised through sponsorship and will be apportioned amongst the extended list of prize winners. Table after table lined with tri-fold posters laden with advanced scientific jargon, charts and analytic graphs revealed the depth of the student work. The panel of nearly 65 judges assigned to evaluate these projects came from within the ranks of the school district, local accredited colleges and universities, science-related industries and the Village of Freeport. The fair brings research skills into practical use and challenges students to resolve questions quickly, accurately and efficiently. The presentation of their work to the public teaches them the importance of communication in science.

FIRST PRIZE RESEARCH: Freeport High School Science and Engineering Fair first-prize winner student Elizabeth Mulé explains her research to Freeport Schools Superintendent Dr. Kishore Kuncham as her mother, school board Vice- President Debra Mulé, listens in.

The research on display at Freeport High School’s eighth annual Science and Engineering Fair seemed more in line with what you’d expect to find at an Ivy League science hall than in a high school gym. The more than 70 individual research projects spanning 15 categories were clearly the result of intense work by the Freeport students, who spoke at length about their research and findings on topics ranging from astronomy to zoology when quizzed by the judges. “We hope the experience in the fair encourages them to pursue careers in science, engineering and mathematics,” stated District Science Coordinator Dr. Vincent Pereira. Elizabeth Mulé won first prize with her research project “Is Cholecalciferol Capable of Lowering Physiological Levels of Mercury?” She will be spending the summer at Brookhaven National Laboratory continuing her research. Second prize went to the team of Wilsa Albert and Lauren Workman for their project “The Kinetic Study of

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

Are you a bucket filler? There are many ways to beautify your world. You can landscape, plant flowers, paint and decorate, dress tastefully, style your hair, and so on. But, more important than any of that, you can smile and say a kind word. Dr. Donald Clifton was a psychologist who decided rather than study what is wrong with some people to see what healthy people do right. His popular book, “How full is your bucket?” inspired psychologists, and also marketers and teachers. Now, local schoolchildren learn to put a lid on their bucket of good thoughts to keep others from bullying them with negative comments. Is your glass half-full or half-empty? Here, at your local newspaper, we work very hard to bring the news to you and to help local businesses succeed with their advertising. Often, it seems to us we hear most often when there is a typo or news someone did not want to hear. And so we treasure the moments when someone calls or stops by to fill our bucket. We rejoice with the reader who just won free tickets to a show through our reader appreciation program. We are glad when someone Facebooks a friend to say how cute their kid looks in a photo on our Facebook page. We are touched when readers take the time to send in their thanks to a beloved retired family doctor. Or when they nominate their moms in the annual Mother of the Year contest. We are happy when an advertiser calls to report his customers liked the photo in his print ad. And also when another advertiser reports an upswing in registrations each time it is re-posted online. We celebrate with Realtors when their ads sell houses and with pet owners when a “lost” ad finds their best friend. We are glad when an organization gets off the ground or a fundraiser is a success in part because we helped spread the news. When we say we work here and someone says, “I love that paper,” it really makes our day!

NuHealth’s guidelines for the program are as follows: • The program is open to all Nassau County women ages 40 and over. • Women covered by insurance, Medicaid or Medicare will have their carrier billed and must bring their information card to the screening. NuHealth policy now requires patients to be responsible for any co-pays charged by their carrier. • Women ages 40 and older without health insurance will not incur any out-of-pocket costs. Women who would like to take advantage of the April 19 breast cancer screening program at the Freeport Library can call Senator Fuschillo’s office at 882-0630 to make an appointment.

According to Nassau detectives, Iban Hernandez, 33, of Westside Avenue, became involved in an argument with a 62-year-old male victim while at El Cibao Bar on South Main Street. The confrontation escalated and the suspect stabbed the victim in the abdomen. Freeport police responded and placed Hernandez into custody without incident.

An open letter from the Baldwin school board The reductions contained in the budget adopted by the Board of Education for 2012-2013, including the closure of two elementary schools, reflect a longterm plan to increase efficiency while maintaining the current program levels for all students in grades K-12 as long as possible. The additional state aid, along with continued savings achieved by running fewer buildings, may allow us to keep the full-day kindergarten program and mitigate the reductions that will be necessary in future years.

As reported in Newsday, the Baldwin School District has seen a restoration of some state aid that turned a projected decrease into a small increase. However, the district faces substantial financial challenges that will continue for the foreseeable future. Dramatic increases in costs for pension contributions, health insurance, and special education are expected over the next several years. With caps on both the tax levy and state aid and without any real effort by the Legislature or governor to invoke mandate relief, the district is severely limited in its ability to raise adequate funds.

mended the maximum allowable sentence of five to 15 years in prison, but Nassau County Judge John L. Kase agreed to sentence the Freeport woman to three to nine years in prison on July 10, over the DA’s objection, in exchange for her guilty plea to all of the charges. DA Rice said that at about 9:40 a.m. on April 20, 2010 on a straight road in good weather, the Freeport resident was driving a van southbound on Cathedral Avenue when she swerved onto the front lawn of a residence, striking and killing 69-year-old Dr. Rebecca Twine-Wright. Dr. Twine-Wright was struck while mowing her lawn and pinned underneath the front axle of the van and up against the foundation of her home on Cathedral Avenue. In addition to the charges related to the crash, the Freeporter was also found to be in possession of a stolen doctor’s prescription pad and a pill bottle containing 22 Oxycodone pills and 29 Xanax pills.

March for peace May 5 Freeport Cares, a collaboration of the Freeport Schools, the Village of Freeport, and community-based organizations, invites the community to its Third Annual Community Peace March, which will be on Saturday, May 5, at 9 a.m. at Freeport High School (rain or shine). Participants will assemble at 9 a.m. in the parking lot of Freeport High School with a designated step-off time set for 9:30 a.m. The route for the Peace March is as follows: The march will 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. Participants in the march are asked to wear something yellow, the color representing our sincere hope for, and com-

mitment to, peace. At the end of the march, a Health and Wellness Fair will be held at Freeport High School and light snacks will be served. Last year, over 1,000 members of the community participated and the spirit of unity and mutual support for each other was stirring. All are invited to join Freeport Cares as it once again walks with Freeport families in support of our theme of “Peace in our Community.” The mission of Freeport Cares is to coordinate the programs and activities of the Freeport Public Schools with the Village of Freeport, the business community, local houses of worship, and Nassau County in supporting the needs of young people and families. The goal is the well-being and educational and social success of the entire Freeport community.

Nassau police are investigating a robbery that occurred on Thursday, April 5, at 6:25 p.m. in Freeport.

While one man placed the victim in a choke hold, the other kicked him in the back. After being told to give up his money, one of the robbers reached into the victim’s pocket and removed an undetermined amount of cash. Both men then fled the building northbound on Guy Lombardo Avenue. The victim did not suffer any injuries as a result of this incident. One robber is described as Hispanic with a medium build. He was wearing a white shirt. The other is described as black with a thin build. He was wearing a red shirt and baseball hat.

Springtime comes to the Brooklyn Water Works by Chris McBride “That is the last load,” said Jimmy, the backhoe/bulldozer/crane operator working at the old Brooklyn Water Works in Freeport at the northeast corner of Sunrise Highway. Jimmy came down out of the cab on his machine to chat with The Leader at the gate to the property. He quickly expressed how glad he was that this project was almost over for him. Jimmy explained that vandals have been terrorizing his equipment – smashing the windows and covering the outside with spray paint that recently cost him more than $3,000 to paint over. He has been cutting plywood to protect the machines until he can just finish the job. “I’ve been working here off and on for 20 years now,” he said. Jimmy also commented on the beautiful stream that lines the back edge of the property. “A trout stream, at one time,” he recalled. Just the day before, The Leader interviewed a man, carrying work gloves, as he made his way out of the Brookside

Preserve, right next door to the former Brooklyn Water Works. The gentleman was from the Audubon Society and he was getting ready for a spring cleanup this Sunday. “Need to clean up those invasive species,” he said, referring to undesirable growth in the Brookside Preserve. “Come on down,” he said, referring to Sunday’s cleanup. “We need all the help we can get.” Standing in the southeast corner of the Brookside Preserve, just by the stream, I looked east and took a photograph of the Brooklyn Water Works property. It appeared as a field being readied for farming, except for a large mound of reddish bricks up by the road. A snapping turtle had nestled in the stream in the corner there, up against the LIRR tracks on the south side. This property, caught up in controversy to the east, has a protected watershed of woods. Meanwhile the enormous old snapping turtle neighbor goes about the business of spring, building its nest for lack of interest in what mankind finds to be something to fight about.

NY could lose seat on MAFMC New York may lose a seat on the MidAtlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC) and place New York anglers at a further disadvantage for fishing allocations. New York has some of the strictest regulations for fishing compared to New Jersey. For example, an angler on the New York side of Raritan Bay can land four fluke per day with each fish measuring at least 20.5 inches while someone on the New Jersey side of the bay could land eight fluke at only 18 inches long. MAFMC is responsible for management of fisheries in federal waters of the mid-Atlantic coast and one of the key roles of the MAFMC is to decide how fish allocations are divided among states. States with voting representation include New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina. The council also appoints industry advi-

sors to work with the Council Committee during the preparation of fishery management plans and amendments. In a letter to Commerce Secretary John Bryson, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer urged him to appoint another New Yorker to the council once New Yorker Steven Schafer’s term expires in August. “Keeping this seat for New York, and not ceding it to any other state, is the only way New York anglers will get their fair share,” said Senator Schumer. “For too long, New York anglers have gotten the short end of the stick, subjected as they are to unfair fishing allocations based on outdated scientifically unreliable data. But make no mistake – if we lose this seat we will lose our opportunity to finally fix these allocations, and Secretary Bryson should not let that happen.” – Laura Schofer

Linda Kenney, founder of the Boston based Medically Induced Trauma Support Services (MITSS) will come to Long Island to address survivors of medical injuries about her work and the patients, family members, and clinicians that she has met and helped along her journey, taking her across the country and around the globe. The program will be on Friday, April 13, at 3 p.m., at the South Nassau Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 228 South Ocean Avenue, Freeport. In 1999, Ms. Kenney almost died during surgery, and the trauma that she, her family, and the care providers endured spiraled her into action. She formed MITSS in 2002, a nonprofit organization whose mission is “To Support Healing and Restore Hope,” and the first organization that focuses on support for everyone suffering an emotional toll following a medical injury.

“In November of 1999, I found myself at the sharp end of an adverse medical event that nearly took my life,” Ms. Kenney says. “There was no acknowledgement of the emotional impact that might follow, and I certainly wasn’t prepared. This event made me extremely aware of the lack of emotional support in place for patients, families, and care providers following these incidents.” “We are honored to have Linda come speak to the community about her work and hopefully help the people here find their way to healing,” said Ilene Corina, president, PULSE of NY. “Linda is known for her work nationally and throughout many countries, and her wonderful outlook on life is an inspiration.” For more information about MITSS, visit www.mitss.org. The program is free. To reserve a seat call 579-4711.
