The Farmingdale High School had a pep rally and homecoming last Friday night at the high school. The gym was packed with students and parents to show their green and white colors, and Daler pride. Performances were by the cheerleaders, Dalerettes, stomping team, kick pom dance team and others. After the pep rally the football team took their work to the field under the lights at Don Snyder Stadium against Valley Stream Central. At 10:10 of the first quarter, the Dalers running back Curtis Jenkins broke tackles for a 64 yard touchdown run putting the Dalers up 7-0. Then Tom Kennedy had a 27 yard reception for a touchdown and Quarterback Vinny Quinn had a 2 yard run to give the Dalers a
19-0 lead going into the second quarter. By halftime the Dalers would be up 40-0. At halftime the Marching Band performed with the Dalerettes, and the Cheerleaders showed their cheering talent. But then the Homecoming Queen
Samantha Giordano and King Elijah Mas were crowned King and Queen of the 2014 Class. The Dalers would go on and win the game 47-0. It was their second shutout this year. They outscored their opponents 222-48 this year. The Dalers are now 6-0 with two games remaining. 10-26 at Uniondale 1:30pm and home on 11-1 against East Meadow 6:30pm.

Bethpage Water District officials recently filed a federal lawsuit against Northrop Grumman Corp., claiming the company’s facilities caused “irreparable harm” by creating a toxic plume that has contaminated the groundwater, costing the district millions of dollars and threatening more than 33,000 customers in Bethpage, Old Bethpage, Farmingdale, Levittown and Plainview.
According to the lawsuit, the district is demanding a jury trial to determine whether Grumman owes compensation for the costs of monitoring contaminants, operations, maintenance, treatment upgrades, and equipment required to comply with state and federal safe drinking water law; or whether Grumman would bear the expense of securing an alternative source of clean drinking water.
