In the coming weeks, Ebert will have a humor article appearing in the "500 Words or Less" column of Newsday's Opinion Section.  The editors confirmed their plans to publish the piece earlier this week, and the exact publication date will be determined later this month.  In July 2005, Ebert contributed his first humor piece to the weekly column, which features essays by Long Island writers.

Back in early 2004, Ebert encouraged his mother to record her unique experiences working as Long Island's sole female golf ranger.  During the following two years, he contributed his editing skills to the humor pieces.  This week, Liz Ebert finally announced the release of her short story collection, "Closing the Gap: Tales of a Woman Ranger."  The book can be purchased by clicking below:
