Local News for Farmingville, Holbrook, Holtsville, Lake Grove, and Lake Ronkonkoma

About Us


Welcome. I’m Jim Green, the publisher and founder of OnSachem.com and OnTownMedia.com. I’m proud to launch this trusted hyperlocal source of news, viewpoints, information, events and more for the 85,000 residents calling Sachem home. OnSachem.com serves Farmingville, Holbrook, Holtsville, Lake Ronkonkoma and the Sachem portion of Lake Grove. OnSachem.com’s tagline “Power the Town Square” reflects a gathering place to be engaged and informed.

My family and I are proud to call Sachem home. My wife Charlotte and I have lived in Holbrook since 2000 and our two sons attend Sachem Schools. I’ve been in the communications industry for 25 years, including extensive experience in community news. Earlier in my career, I was a business reporter for a weekly program, BusinessNow, on ABC television stations in major markets across the U.S.—including New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., and San Francisco—and a general assignment reporter for News 12 Networks on Long Island, New York, and in Connecticut. I also served as the original on-air reporter for News 12 Networks’ innovative hyper-local news channels, Neighborhood News 12, which comprised 12 individual 24/7 television news channels serving individual neighborhoods.

Turn to OnSachem.com for the news and information most important on the neighborhood level. It’s where groups, clubs, schools, PTAs, churches and more spread the word about activities and events. It’s how people share news, views and information quickly. It’s where people unite to address a concern. And it’s where the business community is featured to help them flourish.

Proudly a member of the Farmingville Hills Chamber of Commerce, Holbrook Chamber of Commerce, Ronkonkoma Chamber of Commerce, and Farmingville Residents Association.
