Public Hearing Held on Possible Development of Hueppe Property
Following a May 25 planning board meeting regarding the possible construction of eight million dollar homes in the Village of Farmingdale, the board of trustees met last Tuesday and invited residents to voice their concerns regarding the possible subdivision of the 4.5 acres known as the Hueppe Property. The property, located northwest of Melville Road and southeast of Jefferson Road in the village presently houses three homes, which the applicant intends to demolish and replace with eight new homes on a cul-de-sac.
Farmingdale's 'Golden Grads'
As the Farmingdale School District was busy planning the many graduation ceremonies that took place this June, it also hosted a reunion of some of its older alumni-from the classes of 1939 through 1943, to be exact. It is fitting that these golden grads of Farmingdale Schools should get together this year, as the district celebrates its 190th Anniversary. None of the alum attended the original Hardscrabble District 16, but all of them carry precious memories of their time in the Farmingdale School District.
Golden Lions Advance to Finals of the Sports Festival

"This team won't let each other quit no matter what the circumstances," said CL manager Ed Bochynski.
Over the Hill Softball Report
Well someone finally stopped Singletons run! Only it was "Mother Nature" herself who put the brakes on Big Red's impressive run (10 game winning streak) as four of six scheduled games were rained out. Both 7:00 games were completed, although abbreviated, as the rains only abated enough to get enough innings in to make them official. With the rain falling steadily and the fields getting sloppy, the league wisely called off the balance of the schedule. In a game called after 5, Bar Boy bounced back from their two game losing streak to beat Changing Times to go to 6-4-1 (no highlights provided). In the other contest, Barco's bats erupted as they downed M&T 22-3, which was called after 7. M&T held a 3-2 lead after 3 when the rain and runs came as Barco scored 12 in the 4th to take a 14-2 lead. In the weekly Kevin Moloney/Dave Ringer highlight article, with this week being no exception, Kevin went 4-4 with 5 RBIs as he continues to smoke the ball, hitting at a .840 clip (21-25) for his last six games (mostly extra base hits). The only surprise this game was that Kevin actually stopped at first base, which with Dave Ringer hitting behind him, it's no surprise he doesn't stop. Dave went 3-4 with 4 RBIs on 2 doubles and a triple, and to Kevin's relief, no screamers down toward first. With 22 runs scored there were many who contributed as indicated by the RBIs being spread among 13 guys. Individually Bill White added 3 RBIs on 2-3 and a sac fly, Terry McPartland was 3-4 w/ 2 RBIs and Gary Jambor went 3-3. On a special note, it was great to see Tom Burke back in uniform and on the field again (out due to surgery). Not only did he smack the ball hard, he made two sparkling catches out in right. Welcome Back Tom! Now Terry (and Ace) has someone else to pick on. By the way "K Klub" member, rookie Dave Saur, demonstrated he was the true team player. He unselfishly ended the 12 run rally by hitting into the inning ending DP just so we could get the game in (by the way, why were you running so hard?). See Dave, I even spelled it right this time.
