In Shire, Amanda Marcella wanted to be a housewife. After 20 years, she finds herself divorced and begins to rebuild her life. But someone is watching. Her life begins to unravel and she is thrust into a world of jealousy, obsession and revenge. Shire begins in Massapequa and Farmingdale, and then moves to Georgia with frequent return visits to Long Island.
Now that fall is here it’s time to get back into the swing of things. Hope everyone had an enjoyable summer.

“I thought my house was going to blow away,” one local homeowner told Farmingdale Observer. As he was working on the monumental task of cleaning up his home after the devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy; he spoke about the frightening feeling that his home would come apart during the storm. Many Farmingdale homes incurred tremendous damage, as did so many homes throughout Long Island, and in particular, Nassau County. As with many Nassau residents, much of residents’ belongings were ruined and they are left with the task of rebuilding a home.
It is a scene that is devastatingly similar throughout Long Island, and particularly in waterfront areas on the north and south shores. Homeowners desperately tried to remove the water that had flooded homes by opening doors, windows, garage doors, and by using generator-powered vacuums, designed to capture water. Along curbsides, carpets, furniture, clothing, toys, and other treasured belongings were left for sanitation crews to take away. Literally, lifetimes of memories had been washed away.
For Thanksgiving and Christmas, the Nassau County Salvation Army will have four facilities open, located in Freeport, Hempstead and Westbury.

In addition, the Bethpage Fire Department shared their safe house, a training and demonstration tool used to teach children about fire safety. The safe house was filled with “training smoke” so children could go inside the house, and crawl on the floor to get out, as they would in the event of a real fire.
Farmingdale residents had a couple of questions for the Farmingdale Board of Education at this month’s regular meeting at Howitt Middle School on Oct. 10, concerning student assessment and how the district evaluates reading skills.
Also on the agenda, the board adopted the 2012-13 tax levy of $118,703,113, of which $114,539,602 is a school tax levy, with the rest going towards the library and youth council levies.
Just three months ago, Conte formally announced that he would not seek re-election as assemblyman “due to his ongoing battle with cancer and his desire to focus all of his energy on recovering and spend more time with his family and friends.”
With Romney scoring what many considered an upset victory over Obama’s decidedly lackluster performance in the first debate, this follow-up was going to be a “deal maker or breaker in this campaign,” according to political pundit Chris Matthews, who spoke at Hofstra the prior week. Shortly after moderator Candy Crowley took the stage at 9 p.m., it was clear both candidates were prepared to come out swinging, making for a lively hour and a half that found roughly 65 million viewers tuning in to the town hall-style debate, according to the Nielsen Ratings.
Farmingdale State College’s President W. Hubert Keen welcomed approximately 100 guests on Oct. 11 who attended the groundbreaking ceremony of the campus’s Children’s Center, which will be relocated from its existing building. School officials, local politicians, and influential campus and community members gathered at the construction site entrance to symbolically break ground on what will be the new daycare facility.
“The new facility for our Children’s Center will benefit our students, faculty, and staff, and most importantly—the children,” said President Keen.
