Tech News Keywords: , ,

An artists rendering of a downtown Long Island affordable housing development that planner hope will attract young people. One form of affordable housing Long Islanders have long embraced – both legally and illegally – is accessory apartments, typically defined as a separate, secondary dwelling unit, either in the house itself or in a carriage house or converted garage. Two dynamics are driving demand on Long Island: First, rising property taxes and shrinking family sizes have caused homeowners to seek revenue from empty bedrooms; second, lower-income residents, including homeowners’ family members, need affordable places to live.

Rachel and Jamie Adams of St. James Brewery. Which is in Holbrook. (Press photo Bob Giglione.) While craft beer’s popularity is decidedly a national trend, Long Island’s growth in the sector has come in large part from the 2012 New York state law creating the “farm brewery” license. Under it, breweries that agree to v source at least 20 percent of their hops and other ingredients from New York farms can get special privileges, including the right to open as many as five tasting rooms from which to sell beer by the pint and to take away. The Farm Brewery law was modeled after a 1976 Farm Winery Act that tripled the number of wineries in New York State. What worked for wine h... Read More

Every 20 years, New Yorkers get the chance to decide whether they want a constitutional convention to overhaul or amend the state’s governing document, which was adopted in 1894 and has not been significantly tweaked since 1938.

But things might be different when the measure appears on the ballot this November. Albany’s repeated corruption scandals have stirred up the good-government crowd, and dozens of special interest groups have come to believe that sidestepping the Legislature is the only way their measures will ever be considered.

When A Tax Cap Is Not Really A Tax Cap

In Education, Government, Legal by Long Island PressLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords: , , , , ,

When is a tax cap not a tax cap. The answer is when, as with our New York State cap, bonded interest is exempt from the parameters of the cap. Thus, we hear of Port Jefferson schools proposing a bond of $29 million, which will not be counted in the cap calculations, yet will raise taxes by 5 percent a year, costing each household about $200 annually over and above the regular increases that will come with the budget that will supposedly be within the 2 percent cap. So, in essence, the school taxes will increase by 5-7 percent or more, while the press release will proclaim that the budget is within 2 percent. This is nothing to sneeze at. The same residents will be paying an almost 5 percent increase in their police... Read More

Old Westbury tinkerer Marvin Middlemark invented the “rabbit ears” TV antenna in 1953, helping millions of Americans get the fuzz, or some of it, out of their pre-cable television reception. Though not completely original – the design was based on the dipole antenna invented by Heinrich Hertz in 1886 – the update made Middlemark a wealthy man. Middlemark was awarded 62 patents in his lifetime, but his other inventions, including a water-powered potato peeler and a technique for resuscitating gone-soft tennis balls, didn’t muster the same commercial appeal. He sold his antenna company, All Channel Products Corp., in the mid-1960s, parked the proceeds in municipal bonds, and reti... Read More

Patchogue’s Alive After 5 summer street festival, which runs Fridays in July and August, attracts thousands. Patchogue has been a destination of sorts since 1869, when the final stretch of South Side Railroad tracks were laid from Sayville and hotels and boarding houses sprang up to handle New York City residents looking to beat the heat. The tourist boom went bust with Wall Street in 1929, however, and Patchogue retooled itself as a regional shopping destination, with scores of busy shops and restaurants complementing its traditional textile, paper and lumber industries. The malls killed that iteration of Patchogue in the 1960s, and the village went into decay for the ... Read More

Oktoberfest, that annual celebration of German beer, food and music – and short leather pants – is a bit of a misnomer: The start of the annual fall fete is actually in September.Like many bits of fractured history, drinking was involved. The name dates back over 200 years to the royal hitching of Bavarian Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese von Sachsen-Hildburghausen. The big day was October 12, 1810. The newlyweds invited everyone – literally the entire population of Munich – and the partying stretched on for five days on the fields in front of the city gates, which became known as Therese’s fields or the Theresienwiese. The wedding celebration was such fun that it turned into an annual party. ... Read More

Long Island-based wild horse advocates are calling on Congressional lawmakers to drop a controversial proposal that would authorize euthanizing thousands of mustangs that were rounded up on federal land in the West. CANA Foundation, a nonprofit horse rescue group in Locust Valley, condemned the proposal as inhumane. U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove) said he is exploring how to block the proposal in Congress, where the Republican majority has advanced the measure. “It’s offensive to me, the idea of slaughtering these beautiful animals,” Suozzi told reporters during a news conference Tuesday outside CANA’s stable of 12 rescued horses before riding off on one.

The Rebhuhn House, as it’s known, is Frank Lloyd Wright’s sole Long Island project, but singularity is not its only charm. It was a comeback project for Wright, the first after a dry spell of more than 20 years, an attempt to move past his earlier prairie stylings into a design that was at once modern and utilitarian and suited for the newly evolving life of suburbia. Usonian, he called it, after an idealized vision of America that celebrated individuality and oneness with nature. “People thought he was dead,” said Caroline Rob Zaleski, author of L... Read More

This is all about meat, overwhelmingly pork, smoked and air-cured and terrined, whole legs and loins and, oh yes, the nasty bits, ground and spiced and packed into the pig’s own plumbing. The French call it charcuterie, from an archaic expression meaning “cooked flesh.” In Italian it’s salumi, honoring the Latin word for salt, the world’s preservative for more than 6,000 years.
