The results of the Farmingdale Village elections are in, and local voters have reelected incumbent trustees Cheryl Parisi and Patricia Christensen to another four year term in office.
According to Village Administrator Brian Harty, the results show Christensen received 508 votes, to hold onto her seat on the board.
“I very much appreciate the support from our residents of the work the Village Board is doing and am extremely grateful that I have been given the privilege to serve for the next four years,” Christensen said.
Since village elections go to the highest two vote getters, the other board incumbent, Parisi, faced off against challenger Craig Rosasco.
Based on the results, Parisi received 496 votes—approximately 100 more than Rosasco, who received 397.
“I am proud and honored to be reelected to serve the Village I love for the next four years,” Parisi said. “Village residents have come out, showing their support by casting their vote, recognizing the direction that the team of Mayor Ralph Ekstrand, Trustees Pat Christiansen, Cheryl Parisi, Bill Barrett and Tom Ryan are guiding the Village towards.”
In an uncontested race, Village Justice Hon. Salvatore Nicosia won his bid for reelection with 580 total votes.

There was a time when people knew what they were eating. Frozen meals, fast food chains and ingredients impossible to pronounce were non-existent. Instead, simple ingredients and meals were all made from scratch.
Joann P. Magri, owner of The Divine Olive, is keeping this way of eating alive. Offering hungry customers with a choice in quality foods and ingredients, Magri encourages customers to make their own meals. With shelves stocked full of 18-year-old vinegars straight from Modena, Italy, to extra virgin olive oils infused with various herbs and flavors, the Divine Olive features a variety of organic and vegan products, all 100 percent natural. It even has handmade spaghetti and fresh bread, which perfectly pairs with all of their other products.

It’s a cute little ‘bug.’ What it represents, however, is anything but cute.
An unusual-looking Volkswagen is toodling around Long Island this month. Painted to resemble the Asian longhorned beetle (ALB), the VW Beetle is part of efforts by the US Department of Agriculture to eliminate the pest, which can destroy 70 percent of an area’s tree canopy, according to the agency. Initially, officials held hope for complete eradication from about 23 square miles of LI designated as infested or at risk by 2016. Instead, this “landcape-altering pest” is spreading.
