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

It may have been a polar vortex outside, but inside Farmingdale’s Village hall things were heating up with the first annual Winter wonderland. Close to 800 people filled the village hall over two hours on a frigid Wednesday evening to eat, laugh, and mingle with Main
Street’s finest, the business owners. While K 98.3 played music outside, inside the wonderful aromas of a variety of hot food from the local restaurants filled the air. There were rice balls, and chicken picatta, pastas and meat balls supplied by Cascarino’s and Palmer’s
Grill, along with Shepard’s pie, hot wings from Croxley’s Ale House. The guacamole from Caracara Mexican Grill was so fresh and delicious it would make a Texan jealous. There were 37 business represented all giving away free samples, food, and discounts to a packed crowd ranging in age from infants to seniors.

On Feb. 27, parents in the Farmingdale, East Meadow, Massapequa and Levittown school districts came together for an informal panel discussion on the New York State Education Department and the implementation of the state Common Core Learning Standards.
Panelists included New York State Assemblyman Thomas McKevitt, Jeanette Deutermann of the Long Island Opt Out Facebook page, and former public school teacher David Greene, who came to the Farmingdale Public Library to talk with local parents about key concerns and questions with the curriculum.
An outspoken parent and founder of the Long Island Opt Out movement, Deutermann delved into some of the factors behind what led to the state’s adoption of the Common Core, and how the state education department cites High School graduation rates as its reasoning behind the curriculum.
