During a-recent meeting between Islip
Councilman Norman DeMott and
Sheridan/one of the suggestions from the
Town to the state included turning back
the hands of time, for in the 1870's, the
original farm building housed stables
which produced race horses. "That could
very well be an idea for future use. We
also believe that the market for campustype office development is strong right
now; tax abatements and IDA financing
are available from the Town and this
type of use can e designed to repsect the
site. First, however; we must provide the
economic incentive needed to make the
facility an attractive one for the private
sector," said Commissioner Jones.
Currently, the state is researching the
deed to the Westbrook F-acnv property.
The land was acquired by New York
State in 1968. If it was donated, the state
coulqUhen place it on the auction block,
at a relatively low figure. That could, in
turn, make it attractive and provide the
wherewithal for additional investment.

workbooks, "books that are consumed by
the students," said Pecorale.
Though acknowledging explanations
from Pecorale and the board, Stevens
said he- did not accept them. "I don't
think the district has tried hard enough to
get rid of the books. At the very least,
they should return them to the taxpayers. They could put them on display
. for a while and let anyone who wanted
them have them."
But a district spokesperson said
Wednesday that an attempt to implement Stevens' suggestion had already
been tried. "What we got were kids who
took the books and ripped the pages out
and threw them in the halls."
Officials at other school districts contacted this week say they dispose of some
books by burning them at the town incinerator at Hauppauge, but recycle or
give away texts in good condition.
