Police Issue More Seat Belt Tickets

Westport police officers handed out more seat belt tickets for the most recent Click It or Ticket campaign than they have in the past.

Sgt. Jerry Shannon, police public information officer, said today police officers handed out 179 tickets for people who were not wearing their seat belt.

The campaign started on May 14 and closed on Sunday. It included a crackdown on Saturday, May 26, but numbers for the crackdown were not available.

Typically during each campaign police officers hand out about 130 seat belt violations, which carry a $37 fine.

Second House Fire in 48 Hours Damages Hale St. Home

WestportNow.com Image
Westport’s second house fire in 48 hours early today damaged a home at 4 Hale St., off Greens Farms Road. The homeowner said he heard a loud bang just before midnight during a heavy rain storm and then saw an orange glow at the rear of the house. He got his four children out and then attacked the flames with a garden hose. Firefighters quickly extinguished the flames but not before the fire damaged an area around a porch, kitchen door and windows, and a part of the interior. Cause of the fire is under investigation, as is one Friday night on Saugatuck Shores. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Dave Matlow for WestportNow.com

Westport Community Gardeners Launch Second Year

By Jennifer ConnicWestportNow.com Image
Westporter gardeners opened a second year of growing today. (CLICK TO ENLARGE) Jennifer Connic for WestportNow.com

The Westport Community Gardens opened for the first time on Hyde Lane adjacent to Long Lots Elementary a year ago, but gardeners don’t want to count it as the first year.

Today, the gardeners cut the ribbon on the second year of gardening with 30 plots—and 42 gardeners working those plots—with new soil that they hope make for a better planting season.

“It was a hard road to hoe,” said Louis Weinberg, garden co-president, referring to the difficult soil that existed in the garden. “Now it’s a place you don’t need a jackhammer to plant.”

Sam Gault donated sand, the Kowalsky Brothers donated time and equipment and Daybreak Nurseries gave the group a break on top soil to enhance the garden to make it better for planting, he said.
