PEE WEE 3—With Hurricane Sandy looming the Steelers and Titans battled under a dark sky. The Steelers opened the scoring with a long run by Nicholas Napolitano, followed by a two-point conversion by Miles McIntrye. Ian Innes turned a short pass into an 80-yard gallop down the sideline for a score. Jake Miller caught the two-point conversation. The Steel Curtain defense led by Nick DiSantis, Antonio Migliaccio, Kevin Piraino, Greg Gaudio and James Zanelotti kept the Titans off the scoreboard in the first half. The Titans responded in the second half with long plays from Joe Sciacca and his brother Paul to cut the Steelers lead. Christopher Kretschmer then scored on a long touchdown run and the lead was cut to 22-12. The Steelers scored on a long run and the game ended 28-12.
From Oct. 21, the Steelers defeated the Redskins 20-12 in a tight well-played game. The Steelers opened the scoring when Napolitano scored on a sweep. On their next possession Innes caught a short down and out pass and rumbled 80 yards for the score. Innes than did an end dance which will be talked about for weeks to come, Disanti dashed in for the two-point conversation to make the score 14-0. The Steeler defense, led by Piraino and Zanelotti was in full “steel curtain” mode and kept the Redskins out of the end zone for the first half. In the second half McIntyre took a short pass and turned it into a 79-yard adventure down the sideline, before being stopped at the one-foot line. On the next play Gaudio caught a touchdown pass to extend the lead to 20-0. The Redskins rallied and scored two touchdowns to close to the gap. Jack Agres scored on an 80-yard run, cutting back and forth across the field. The Redskins comeback ran out of time as a last second pass was picked off by Napolitano to end the game.

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.

Farmingdale residents are being urged to use caution when answering the doorbell due to ongoing concerns of imposters posing as utility workers. On Aug. 19, officials with the South Farmingdale Water District—covering the Farmingdale, Bethpage, Seaford, North Massapequa and Massapequa Park communities—sent out an advisory warning customers not to let anyone into their homes claiming to be a water district employee without first showing photo identification. The advisory was sent as a safety precaution, instructing residents to immediately contact the police if they are suspicious of anyone identifying his or herself as a “water district” employee.
According to the South Farmingdale Water District Commissioners, it is rare for any water district employees to show up at a home or business unannounced in order to read a water meter or confirm a leak, as most, if not all, residential visits are done by appointment.
