Launched in early October, TheFoggiestIdea.org, was created by Syosset planner Richard Murdocco to make Long Island’s development processes easily accessible and easily understandable for residents. The site is a spinoff of Murdocco’s popular land use blog, The Foggiest Idea, developed three years ago while Murdocco was pursuing his Masters in Public Policy at Stony Brook University.
“I started The Foggiest Idea with the goal of making complicated local land use issues approachable to the public, while putting my education to work,” said Murdocco.
Katherine Hepburn once said, “Acting is the most minor of gifts. After all, Shirley Temple could do it when she was four." And while this legendary late actress may have felt so glib about her craft, people of all ages usually have an entirely different outlook. Oftentimes it’s one of fear and intimidation.
It’s a reaction that acting professor Kerry McCarthy hopes to curb whenever she goes before a class of aspiring thespians. Which is the primary ideology behind the I’ve Never Acted Before Theatre Workshop she co-founded with her husband 25 years ago.
Residents across Nassau County are being hit with sharp school tax rate increases, leaving politicians pointing fingers and school administrators blaming a broken property assessment system and specifically, valuation reductions on commercial properties.
The latest school tax bills, reflecting the higher rates, will be mailed to Syosset and Jericho residents this week.
District figures show the school tax rate for Syosset homeowners increasing by 9.13 percent. Jericho homeowners face a rate increase of 8.15 percent.
Actress Natalie Portman, born Natalie Hershlag, was born in Jerusalem, Israel but she grew up in Jericho and graduated from Syosset High School. The quotes next to her class of ’99 yearbook picture are lyrics from a Bjork song: “If travel is searching and home what’s been found I’m not stopping I’m going hunting” and Holly Golightly’s line from Breakfast at Tiffany’s: “I’m going and that’s all there is to it.”
Knowing your craft is very important, especially when it comes to beer.
Luckily, this is something Long Island’s own Syosset Beverage—known online as BeerCave.com—has taken to heart. Located right off of Jericho Turnpike, this beverage depot is a Mecca for all things beer, soda, and soft drinks—with an emphasis on local and specialty beers.
Upon walking in, customers will find endless shelves and refrigerators stocked to the brim with specialty and craft beers, menu boards for on tap “growler” specials, recommended brews, and a number of beer aficionados.
Jamie “Fly Boy” Austin, president of Syosset’s Austin Travel and one of the founders of Long Island Fight for Charity (LIFFC), will find out next week who he’s been matched up with on the card for the LIFFC Main Event scheduled for November 25 at the Hilton Long Island in Melville.
“I am one of 20 boxers eager to know the name of the boxer I have been matched up with,” says Austin. “The matchup announcement event creates tremendous excitement.”

Specialty grocer The Fresh Market will be the latest tenant to join the Woodbury Common boutique shopping center this October.
Adding to the recent trend of gourmet supermarkets increasing their presence on Long Island, The Fresh Market’s concept will be less like a box store, and more like an Uncle Giuseppe’s or Fairway, reminiscent of European markets, according to President and CEO Craig Carlock.
Ted Volynets grew up with two passions: dance and Judaism. As a child he danced competitively in the US and abroad. In 2011, during his last semester at New York University, Ted’s professional ballroom dancing career reached a new high when he was selected for the professional troupe on ABC’s Dancing with The Stars.
He also grew up part of the then-small Town of Oyster Bay Chabad in Woodbury.
“My father, Eugene Volynets, is the executive founder of the congregation,” he says. “It is basically where I grew up—whenever I was not at the dance studio.”
