Over The Hill Gang Report

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.

 

Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology beat Bar-Boy 11-9 on the 60 foot field. ZP scored 6 runs in the first inning to take the lead for good.  Jerry Mazza, John Hernandez, Marc Fischer, Russ Graham, Bino Reverberi, Steve Lenci and Tommy Dittmeier all strung together hits.   

 

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

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.

It will be difficult to top the exhilaration of being crowned Nassau County Champs, but the 2014 Farmingdale Dalers will begin their defense of the title on Sept. 13 at rival Massapequa—whom they beat to claim the crown.

“The attitude is that we have to prove it again,” said Head Coach Buddy Krumenacker, who has been at the helm since 1993. “But I think we’ll be okay,” he added.

Register now as classes fill up quickly and you don’t want to miss out on the chance to join in trapeze workshops at Eisenhower Park’s I.FLY this fall.

 

“I.FLY was designed to give kids and adults the ability to fulfill their dreams of being in the circus,” says instructor Anthony Rosamilia.  “Flying through the air never gets boring.  At I.FLY, we help people create lifelong memories.”
