A Westporter’s View: Final Farewell to Walter Cronkite

By Jeffrey Mayer

Among those occupying a coveted front of the church spot was Westport First Selectman Gordon F. Joseloff, a former CBS News correspondent and Cronkite colleague.

The crowd began to gather before 1 p.m. outside the ornate Romanesque church as photographers and TV cameramen stood behind police barricades. 

This reporter spotted Joseloff in the crowd and joined him as the former Cronkite writer met old friends and colleagues and caught up on the lives of CBS alumni.

Flood Watch Issued

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued a flood watch for Westport and area from tonight through Friday afternoon.

An advisory said rainfall of 1 to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts, could lead to flash flooding of small streams and urban and poor drainage areas

It said a deep tropical air mass over the area will provide the moisture needed for widespread heavy rainfall as developing low pressure over the southeast United States tracks north and passes south and east of Long Island Thursday night through Friday morning.

Recent heavy rainfall has also left saturated soil conditions, aiding in the possibility for flooding. the advisory said.
