Home Invasion Prevention, Guest Speaker Legislator Mejias at CCAF Meeting
Top priority at the Oct. 20 Concerned Citizens Association of Farmingdale meeting was to help alert the community on how to prevent their homes from being violated by the string of home invasions that have plagued Nassau County. Eighth Precinct POP Officers Tom Murphy and Paul LaMonaca dispensed literature and educated residents in attendance on how to help keep their homes invasion-free. Some of the tips included pruning overgrown shrubbery that hides windows and doors, making alarm stickers visible on doors and windows, keeping a car in the driveway, if possible, having outside doors of solid core or metal clad, setting inside lights on timers. They also advised walking around your home and creating a list of easy points of entry for an intruder and marking valuables with your driver's license number in order to make them traceable if stolen and found on a burglar.

Flag Football - Week 7
Taking the field without two key players, the Lady Jets faced the Lady Vikings for the second time this season. The Jets overcame the player shortage and beat the Vikings 22-6. Two big touchdowns were scored by Christina Lopilato. A stunning short pass reception and run resulted in 6 points for Jules Mullane. Andrea Lopilato found the end zone for the 2-point conversion. Sarah Hecht, Megan Draghi and Maddie Reilly all had big runs from scrimmage as they contributed to the Jets 4th victory of the season. On defense, the Jets were tough, only allowing one breakaway TD run from scrimmage. The coaches on both teams are amazed how much these girls have learned about football and more importantly about the sportsmanship they demonstrate.
