A gasoline retailer in East Rockaway has been arrested on charges of selling regular unleaded gasoline at the higher prices charged for premium unleaded gas, according to authorities. Michael Carver, 29, oper-ator of Shane Oil Ltd., 464 A t l a n t i c Avenue, East Rockaway, was arrested on misdemeanor charges of vio-lating the state's General Business Law. He was released in his own custody a f t e r arraignment before District Court Judge Cha-rles Heine. According to Assistant District Attorney Burton Ryan, Carver sold regular unleaded gas—which usually sells for $.79 a gallon~as h i g h e r - o c t a n e p r e m i um unleaded, for as high as $1.25 per gallon. Edward Grilli, a spokes-man for District Attorney Denis Dillon, said that the investigation was the result of a joint operation with the Nassau County Office of Consumer Affairs. He said that the pumps at the station were sealed and that infor- Bond Reffsrsnlum Stated for October 14 Two classes of fourth-grade students from Wav-erly Avenue School slipped into the Grist Mill Museum two days after it had offi-cially closed. For the past five years the students have been coming, but it was thought they had decided to skip the trip this year. How-ever, there was just a slip-up in making arrangements, so the welcome mat was once more pulled out for them. As usual they were an enthu-siastic, interested group of nine-year olds. The. fire-men's "Tootsie," the old pumper, is always an attrac-tion, some asked why the men who pulled the pumper, had to draw the water from nearby streams to put out fires instead of hooking up to hydrants. Of course. East Rockaway had no hydrants in ' t h em dar days" and had to depend" on streams for their hoses or buckets. Wonder how many homes were saved. Heard that once the fire house itself burned down! Not only the youngster do not realize how things worked in the old days, Showing a lady a pair of long white, kid gloves in one of the cases she asked. "How in the world did they ever button them up?" With a tiny buttonhook," was the reply. "And what is a but-tonhook?" was the next question. Questions like this make ye old historian know her age. One that really by Mildred Roemer "floored" her was when relating the story about the famous Henri's Restaurant on Scranton Avenue. Henri had made the first "crepe sussettes," named for a French girl friend. "And," she was told, "during prohi-bition it was a speakeasy for politicians and 'big wigs' from the city." What?" asked the confused visitor, "is a speakeasy?" Another time a mother noted the metal pieces on the toes and heels of the children's shoes in Sam Rhame's store. "Oh, see," she said to her child," they did tap dancing in those days too." Sorry, but those bits of metal were ham-mered on there so that the shoes would last longer. Children always ask about the brass-topped inkwells on each desk. A gentleman sug-gested in all seriousness that they had something to do with ear phones. (Continued on Page 10} A community bond issue referendum to gain approval to build a new Rhame Avenue School has been scheduled for Tuesday, October 14, 1986. The East Rockaway Board of Education has published the legal notices and has mailed to each home in the district a description of the proposed new school. A two-story, energy-efficient, safe and secure building is scheduled to be built on the rear portion of the site. It will contain 18 classrooms, plus adequate facilities for a library-media center, computer education, art, music, physical educa-tion and office areas. The new school will have an attractive 2-station gym/- cafeteria with a stage for concerts and plays. The grounds will be a mix of p l a y g r o u n d s and open grassy areas. The district's architects project that building a new school will take until Sep-tember, 1988. Until that time Rhame Avenue stu- Registration Days The East Rockaway Board of Educacion has announced that voter regis-t r a t i o n for the Special October 14, 1986 Rhame Avenue School Bond Issue referendum will take place on Wednesday, October 1, 1986, in the District Office at the ESRHS located on Ocean Avenue from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. In addition, registration may be completed at the vot-ing place on the day of the referendum. Voting hours will be from 6:00a.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Main Gymna-sium of the ESRHS on October 14, 1986. Absentee Ballot applica-tions for registered residents who will be unable to vote in person on October 14, 1986 are available in the District Office, ERHS. dents would continue to be transported to facilities we have leased from Oceanside School District and the South Shore YMHA. The projected total costs of building a new 45,000 sq. ft. school are not to exceed $ 5 , 5 7 6 , 0 0 0 . Of t h a t, $2,000,000 will come from our insurance settlement on the January fire and the community will be asked to approve a bond issue of $3,576,000. However, New York State special building aid w i l l pay for n e a r ly $1,400,000, leaving the community to pay for approximately $2,100,000. School districts borrow money at very attractive • rates of interest. With a gooa~~~eFedit_rating (E.R. School DistncTiJurrently has an A rating from Moody's Investment Ser-vice), the District borrowed $3.3 million for the 1984 renovation bond at an aver-age interest of 7.25%. The borrowed money has been invested until it is actu-ally needed to pay construc-tion costs at a higher rate of interest than the rate we paid to borrow. The actual sale of bonds, if approved on October 14, may take place as late as 12- 18 months later. At that time, the district's f i n a n c i a l a d v i s o r s will recommend a term of bor-rowing (from 15 years to 30 years) and sell bonds on a competitive bidding basis. The projected impact on our tax rate if bonds were (Continued on Page 10) mation from the investiga-tion was being turned over to the statQ attorney gener-al's office, which has indi-cated that it will seek an injunction to prevent the station from doing further business. Horizon Takes Top Award "Staff deserves a standing ovation," said the judge of Lynbrook HS's HORIZON in recommending it for the coveted George H. Gallup award from Quill & Scroll, the International Honor ' Society for HS Journalists, the highest honor given to a handful of the International First Place Award Winners in their annual judging. Adviser Leonard Daven-port noted that "of all the awards staff received for last year's efforts, this is the most prestigious." Six issues were evaluated in the judging. Horizon received 943 points out of a possible 1000. "It's a first for us, and I can't remember when another New York State paper took this award." The papers judged were edited by Andrew Stein, now attending Cornell Uni- Boy Scout Salute East Rockaway resident Linda Louis has been selected as a member of the Steering Committee of the Nassau County Council of Boy Scouts' first annual Salute to the Long Island Woman Luncheon on Tues-day, September 23 at the Garden City Hotel. Judge Ute Lally of the Nassau Dis-trict Court will be keynote^)eaker. The event, honoring Muriel Siebert of Muriel Siebert & Co., Inc., and Maureen Clancy, principal of Clancy and Clancy, Inc., a Garden City insurance firm, brings attention to the fact that the Boy Scouts' Explorer program has a fifty percent female membership. More than 6,000 young Nas-sau women between 14 and 21 are given in-depth expo-sure to a variety of careers in the program. Ms. Louis heads the Linda Louis Public Rela-t i o n s Division of LF O'Connell Advertising in Garden City. In addition, she is the public relations (Continued on Page 10) versity, and Paul Friedwald who is majoring in photo-graphy at Fashion Institute of Technology. This year's top editors. Ken Rosen, Jen Rechner, and Kevin Cros-san, were last year's News and Sports editors. The judge who made the nomination wrote that the "the depth and breadth" of Horizon's "reporting is out-standing." Of the general news coverage, he com-, mented that "this kind of coverage plus the eye you keep on the community and other schools is your forte." Sports coverage was singled out as "very well done...cov-ering all sports." Quality of Reporting Commended Special Recognition, said the judge, went "for the quality of your reporting and the number of sources who talk to you. You have obviously established your credibility." Photographs were praised for "action" and the staff was com-mended because they "aren't afraid to play a photo big... a pleasure to see!" The size of Horizon's mail circula-t i o n earned a simple "Wow!" from the judge who was also impressed with the "well designed ads" and the total ad revenue. "Raising $7000 is no joke." The George Gallup Award is just one of a series of local and national awards won by HORIZON last y e a r , which g e n e r a t ed honors in every category in Newsday's annual contest, national awards from the American Scholastic Press Association, and state and national prizes from the Women's Federation of Press Writers. The judge wrote to the staff that they deserved "a standing ovation." Then added, "You give opportun-ities to everyone and still do a credible job of writing, reporting and packaging the news. Quality and quantity are an unbeatable combina-tion."
