Bill Leonello is a competitive bodybuilder who works as a personal trainer on the North Shore, but when he begins his own training for the annual June and July bodybuilding tournaments in New York City and New Jersey, he travels to Bev Francis’s Powerhouse Gym in Syosset.

Written by Jaclyn Gallucci, jgallucci@antonnews.com Friday, 18 October 2013 00:00

A Woodbury man was sentenced to one to three years in prison after he was convicted of tricking his mother-in-law into signing various real estate documents which allowed him to steal more than $600,000 from several financial institutions, leaving her to face civil lawsuits in addition to foreclosure proceedings on a nearly $1 million home she had no idea she owned.

In October 2005, John Tuozzo, a self-employed mortgage broker, needed to obtain two mortgages totaling $939,000 so he and his wife could purchase a home on Harvard Avenue in Merrick, according to Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice. Since Tuozzo and his wife had filed for bankruptcy in 2001, they were unable to secure financing on their own. Tuozzo’s mother-in-law agreed to co-sign the mortgages.

All The World’s A Stage

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.
