Skelos (R: Rockville Cen-tre) announced today that he has won approval of an additional $330,000 in spe-cial legislative appropria-tions for area schools. Senator Skelos explained, "The 1987-88 New York State Budget, which was adopted in April, contained a lump sum appropriation targeted for worthy educa-tional programs. Every State Legislator was then given the opportunity to submit requests for funding of special educational pro-jects in their districts. I am extremely pleased, that by working with school super-intendents throughout my Senate District, that 1 was able to submit a wide variety of outstanding programs for consideration." After careful considera-tion of each request, the Senate Finance Committee awards this special legisla-tive funding to the most deserving programs. Each year hundreds of such requests are filed by legisla-tors across the state. "Under this program," Skelos pointed out, "The Lynbrook Union Free School District will receive $40,000 to continue their Latin program, while the East Rockaway School Dis-trict will receive $20,000 for needed window replacement and installation of cable and closed circuit television capabilities. In total, nine separate school districts will be sharing in the benefits of this special funding." Earlier this year, Skelos took the lead role in nego-tiating a substantial increase over the Governor's recom-mended budget allotment for State aid to education. As a result, every school in the Ninth Senate District won an increase in State school for the third consecu-tive year. (Continued on Page 4) by Annette Ling The Lynbrook Board of Trustees meeting held in Vil-lage Hall, Monday, evening, November 2, 1987 at 8 p.m. was highlighted by a Public Hearing on a request from Tartan Oil, 330 (440) Sun-rise Highway, for a Special Exception and by donations in general. The Board of Trustees accepted a donation fo $250 from Adams-Russell Cable-vision of Lynbrook for Lyn-brook Week. The Board also accepted a donation of $75 from the Lynbrook Elks Club, No. 1515, in the amount of $75 for the Hal-loween Costume Parade. Deputy Mayor Norman Dreyer presided and read a l e t t e r f r om Lynbrook Chamber" of Commerce President Florence Bothe a s k i n g help with the increased cost (35%) of the Christmas Lighting Pro-gram and permission for Santa Claus to arrive in the Village by Fire Truck on November 28, 1987. The Board approved the amount of $2,000, and increase of $500 from 1986.

Donations will be $25.00 per person. over the front page of the Nassau Daily Review, (price 2c) on May 8, 1929. The smaller caption over the "East Rockaway" article added, "Blows and kicks were swapped following S l u r s " and "Near Riot Thrills East Rockaway meeting." The event at a school board election even hit the "Brooklyn Daily Eagle" according to bits and pieces of newsprint from the late Dr. Harold F. Studwell's s c r a p b o o k . The a f f a ir erupted when Robert Baker, then president of the school board, made a remark while reading his notes critisizing Joseph Gardner, principal of'Rahme Avenue School. The newspapers stated that number of "citizens seated in the assembly hall of the Cen-tre Avenue School" rushed t o w a r d s the p l a t f o rm demanding that the remarks be struck from the minutes of the meeting. We're not certain what was "the end of the story," as today's commentator Paul Harvey mentions. But in a later article in the paper it stated that Mr. Gardner had become Supervising Princi-pal of the ft-ooklyn Avenue School in Valley Stream after having served for two years in Rhame Avenue School. In quite recent times, the entire village was in an uproar about the suggestion by School Superintendent, Michael Maiden that both Rhame and Centre be dem-olished and new buildings e r e c t e d . U n f o r t u l a t e l y, Rhame did comply later without the need for any votes, but the irate citizens did not stoop to fisticuffs, but many verbal blows and...Mr. Maiden is now working in the Hamptons. Since ye old Historian landed on these sandy s h o r e s f r om Brooklyn (where else?) in 1936, it has been quite apparent that although many ^jass us by traveling to Long Beach, etc., it seems to stick in peo-ple's minds that East Rock-away is a quiet mile-aquare village. E x e c u t i v e S e c r e t a ry Annette Ling thanked the Board on behalf of the Chamber for their donation and stated that it was very much appreciated and that without it no Christmas Lighting would have been a possibility. Deputy Mayor Dreyer administered the oath of office and presented their badges to two new Lyn-brook Police Officers, Tony Zee and William Straub, both former members of the New York City Police Dept. The date of November 16, 1987 was set for a Public Hearing on Setbacks and the same date was set for a Public Hearing on Gas and Electric Meters. Acting Police Chief Lau-riano asked the Board for authorization to hire 3 full-time police aides at a salary of $15,000 each, and to hire 4 part-time aides at l9'/2 hours per week at $5 per hour. He explained that the 3 full-time aides will free 3 police officers from various administrative or clerical duties such as handling dis-patch, and the 4 parttime aides will assist with parking violations and traffic con-trol. The Board approved the request. A Public Hearing was held for authorization to spend $3,500 of the Reserve For Repair Fund. The sum was approved to be spent on a new fence around the g r o u n d s of the DPW grounds on Crab Avenue as suggested by the village insurance carrier. The Public Hearing on a request for a Special Excep-tion for Tartan Oil at 330 (440) Sunrise Highway, presently an Amoco Gas Station, was on the agenda and the attorney represent-ing the applicant was Michael Sahn. He reported that the owner plans to demolish the present build-ing and use the property to sell self-service gasoline along with various auto parts for the convenience of drivers. In a previous Public Hearing, the owner had app-lied to build a convenience store and a booth inside where the caretaker would take change etc. The pre-vious Special Exception request was denied by the Board. The proposed new station would have a canopy cover-ing the two gasoline pump islands. They propose to landscape and repair the entire lot with repaving. There would be lighting under the canopy. Attorney Sahn explained that it would be a substantial upgrading of the property and would be a 24 hour operation with self-service at the gas pumps. The can-opy would be 18 ft. in height and shelter customers in inclement weather. The planned building will be 24 ft. by 64 ft. The attorney answered the questions of the Trustees and from the floor about on site parking, ingress ad egress for trucks and the proper lighting for the rear of the building.
