A Minute of Farmingdale History
Bill Johnston, the Farmingdale Village Historian, asked me if I would give a brief history of the founding of the Farmingdale Post for a "Minute of History" at the Village Pops Concert Series. I believe he asked me to do this for two reasons: first, I was informed that it is about the 25th anniversary of the last publication of the Farmingdale Post. Secondly, this community newspaper was founded by my grandparents, Jesse and Mabel Merritt.

Over the Hill Gang Softball Report
On July 28, the Friday rainy season continued but fortunately the rains passed through early enough so the games could be played. Leading off the night was Synergy facing off against a struggling Bar Boy club. The boys in green were looking to keep hold of their first place position in the American League. Synergy started out smoking as they put up a 12 run first inning and never looked back as they cruised to a 27-8 victory. To greet his new team, first game rookie John Garrity hit a HR over the right center fence. Also hitting HRs were Benny Macchia, Tommy Vanasco, The New Bill Fitzpatrick and Big Mike Mormino who attempted to run his into a triple. Veteran Bobby Joyce whiffed at a third strike on one at bat then on his next he powered the first pitch 15 feet down the third baseline for an infield single. Denny 'Ace' Oehl pitched masterfully on the mound to gain the win. In the other early contest, Moby continued their winning ways as well as they thumped Changing Times 17-5. Moby started out on fire as they posted 10 runs in the first two innings, which included a two-run blast by Paul Nardone. The Moby crew had 30 hits all together with Henry Hasemann leading the way with a 5-5 night.
