  • NEWS: Patriotic Neighbors Set Up Memorial

    Just over 30 years ago, Farmingdale resident Dominique Cattone, a longtime resident of Oakdale Boulevard in Farmingdale, decided to do something about a barren little grass-filled island in front of his home, on the corner of Oakdale Blvd. and Balcom Road in Farmingdale. The strip of land, at that time uncurbed and empty, soon turned into a memorial of sorts when Cattone, with the help of his friends and neighbors, put up a flagpole for the whole neighborhood to enjoy. Curbs were placed around the island when the sewer system was later redone. Cattone, a WWII navy veteran and retired employee of LILCO, bought the flagpole in 1971 from LILCO and members of the American Legion helped him put it in the island. That was in October of 1971, and Cattone has been taking the flag out every morning and bringing it in every night ever since. FULL STORY

  • SPORTS: Rough Riders Undefeated in Columbus Tournament

    Congratulations to the Farmingdale Rough Riders U9 boys tournament soccer team. They were undefeated in the four games they played at Heckscher State Park over the Columbus Day Weekend. This group never lost a game at the East Islip Fall Tournament in the years they attended. Competition was tough this year and the team ended up in a tie for first place with a very good New Hyde Park team. These two teams finished so even that after the first three tie-breakers, head-to-head, most wins and goals against, they were still tied. In order to decide which team would be given the first- and second-place trophies the fourth tie-breaker (bonus points) had to be used. A great effort was given by all the players and they should be very proud of what they have accomplished. Look to see these boys again in the future. FULL STORY
