Over The Hill Gang Report

On May 23, the T-Storms were on the North Shore, yet there were a hurricane of runs as Changing Times Pub improved to 4-1 beating a very tough and gritty La Corte Family Auto 26-9. The first few innings started as a pitcher’s duel with very  few runs scored. But the 6th inning is when Hurricane CT began to take shape by scoring 8 runs led by Dave Thorburn (6-6) 2 RBI’s and Jimmy Cullen (4-5) with 5 runs scored. But that’s wasn’t all as the eye of  the storm came through with another 4 runs in the 7th and another 8 runs in the 8th. Thanks to Joe Stephan (4-4) and our SS Larry Ortolani making diving stops and going (4-6) 3 RBI’s. But the game ball goes to Dave Chametzky for coming out of the bullpen and going (3-5) 1 RBI and  holding a very offensive team like La Corte to only 9 runs.

 

Bar-Boy beat Moby Drugs 19 to 7.  B-B came out strong with 10 runs in the 3rd inning + 2 in the 1st to lead 12 to 2 at that time. BB kept on chipping away with a few more runs during the next 4 innings.  Frank Badalamenti went 3 for 5 with a homer, a triple and 3RBIs, Ken Kuzma went 4 for 5 with 3RBIs, Ken Kohlmann went 3 for 4, Tom Debona went 3 for 5 with 2RBIs, Darrin Simons went 3 for 4+2RBIs, Jason Cinnelli only team member who went 4 for 4, John Czarnecki went 3 for 4 and Steve Rose came back off disabled list and went 2 for 4-great start. On a side note: Sebby Raspanti showed up playing about 40 lbs. less and looked great.

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.”
