Wickenden, a Weston native, was greeted by many familiar faces and friends in the crowd. Her mother, Hermione Wickenden, currently lives in Westport.

The standing room only crowd heard her trace the history of the magazine, which started on Feb. 21, 1925. She said critics predicted the demise of The New Yorker 10 years ago.

Tina Brown, then editor, revitalized the magazine and subscriptions grew, Wickenden said, and now more than a million people read the magazine.

Community Gardeners Seek Expansion

By .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

Westport’s community gardeners are seeking an expansion of their 30-plot space next to Long Lots Elementary School, but it may not happen soon.

The gardeners will ask the Parks and Recreation Commission tonight to double the number of plots, but Parks and Recreation Director Stuart McCarthy said the request is premature.

Mary Ann West, co-chairwoman of the gardeners’ association, said about half of the plots in the garden are not usable because of drainage problems and deep shade.

Six of the plots are completely unusable because of how the property drains, she said.

Penalty Kicks Help Advance Boys Soccer to Semifinals

Nine consecutive Staples players nailed penalty kicks, lifting the Wreckers to a 1-0 win over previously unbeaten Farmington today in the state “LL” tournament. 

The thrilling victory—after 100 minutes of scoreless soccer—advances Staples into the semifinals, against Hall-West Hartford. That match will be played at a neutral field on Tuesday or Wednesday.

The seventh-seeded Wreckers (now 17-1-3) withstood early pressure from the No. 2 (now 17-1-1) Indians at Farmington’s Tunxis Mead Park.

But after 10 minutes Staples found their rhythm, and the remainder of the half belonged to Staples.
