Local Official Involved in Hearing on World Trade Center Site
In late May, Farmingdale Village Historian Daniel Looney, an attorney in the Nassau County District Attorney's Office, presented ideas as to what should be done with the site of the World Trade Center together with his colleague Kenneth Kunken and designer Anna Blazejczyk during a public meeting held in Manhattan. Looney was grateful to be chosen to share his thoughts as he was one of hundreds who attended the meeting, one of several to be held prior to a decision being made regarding the fate of the site in lower Manhattan.
Farmingdale Budget Passes
Farmingdale voters turned out in great numbers last Friday to help pass the district's budget for the 2002-2003 school year. The school budget, which was originally voted by the public on May 21, failed the first time by only four votes. Due to the small margin of votes for and against the budget during the initial vote, the district decided to put up the same budget for a revote.

Dalers Greatness Never to Cease
Farmingdale is known around the Island for its great sports prowess, with its teams and players making headlines in and sharing airtime in many of the local media outlets. A walk into the large gym of the high school would reveal to any non-believer the tradition of excellence maintained by Farmingdale over the last century. Banners grip the walls manifesting the greatness of yesterday, showing of past championships in football, cross-country, soccer, golf, swimming, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, track and field, baseball, badminton, and perhaps Farmingdale's strongest sport of them all, lacrosse. Lacrosse is deeply rooted in the foundation of Farmingdale High School's athletic past. Every year, the Dalers make an impact in the local, and often the national lacrosse scene, and, every year, Dalers head off to further their careers in the sport at the collegiate level. This year the boys' team made it all the way to the Long Island championships, but unfortunately, they fell short of winning, and were defeated by a good Northport team. However, this recent loss, one of only two of the season, never can, and never will corrupt the greatness of today and tomorrow that exist in Farmingdale sports.
