Moby Drugs and Lockie and Nowachek Family Chiropractors ended the Over the Hill Gang regular season with a fantastic game. Moby took a quick 4-0 lead, but L&N answered and each team had the lead throughout the game.
L&N took a 16-10 lead into the last inning when Moby struck back for 6 runs to tie the game 16-16. L&N had the top of their order in the bottom of the 9th but their first two batters lined out.
With two outs, Mike Quigley hit a single. Rich Apollo followed with a double putting runners on 2nd and 3rd. Moby then intentionally walked Butch Flecker to load the bases.
Next up was Tim Jones, L&N’s player/manager, who ran the count to 3-2. Jones then lined a single to center to win the game.
In addition to Jones’ heroics, L&N got a home run from Tommy Joseph. Quigley also went the distance for the win after limited pitching appearances during the season.

For the game, Fischer had 3 hits. Mazza, Hernandez, and Dittmeier had 2 each. In the field, 3rd baseman Sean O’Flynn and 2nd baseman Rich D’Amico handled everything hit their way to support winning pitcher Brian Tinney

Mentorship is one of those goals rotary clubs strive for, particularly when it comes to grooming future community business leaders. Nowhere was this more important than when the most recent Farmingdale Breakfast Rotary meeting’s guests were Stanley Pelech, director of Integrated Academic and Technical studies and Jodi Haniquet, advisor of the Farmingdale High School (FHS) Interact club. Interact is Rotary International’s service club for young people. The Farmingdale Breakfast Rotary is the sponsor of the 75-plus student strong high school club. Advisor Jodi Haniquet reported to Rotary club members what fundraising events the Interact Club will participate in for the 2015 school year. The service group will once again team with FHS student government in a food drive – donations collected for Island Harvest pantries. They will also participate in Ronald McDonald house dinner program – cooking and serving meals on the premises in New Hyde Park for the many families staying at the residence while their seriously ill children receive treatment at nearby hospitals.

On Sunday, Sept. 28, the Farmingdale-based Runner’s Edge team earned first place overall in the 29th annual Bethpage Ocean to Sound Relay.
