The Westport Weston Health District is planning a series of annual symposiums on how the environment affects health, and will kick it off the series next month with a series on wildlife issues.

The symposium will include panel discussions and community feedback sessions. The first panel discussion is scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m. at Coleytown Middle School.

Sue Jacozzi, health district director, said the plan for the session is for people to receive the same information and statistics before moving on to discussions about potential problems and solutions.

Wildlife is a great environmental topic to start the symposium series with because people are talking a lot about it, she said, including with deer and geese.

New Voting Machines Arrive in February

By Jennifer Connic

Westport’s registrars of voters are ready to receive new, electronic voting machines next month, but they’re still seeking a place to store the equipment.

Registrar of Voters Nita Cohen said the 18 new voting machines—which will electronically scan ballots and capture votes on a computer chip—are due to arrive on Feb. 16.

The other items needed for the new machines including the bins and privacy booths have already arrived, she said, and they stored them in the attic at Town Hall.

But the machines themselves cannot be stored in the attic, Cohen said, because it is not climate controlled.

By Jennifer Connic

A Weston native is preparing to launch a documentary about the importance of the Hubble Space Telescope set against the discussion about the future of the United States space program.

David Gaynes spoke to the Y’s Men of Westport Weston during their session this morning about “Saving Hubble,” the documentary he plans to finish by June.

Workers at Perkin-Elmer in Norwalk and Danbury worked on the mirror for the Hubble Space Telescope, and a number of Perkin-Elmer alumni were at today’s talk.

Gaynes said he was first interested in the space telescope in 2004 when the program was canceled, and he felt it was an “incredibly important” issue based on the reaction.

No students were injured this morning when a car collided with a school bus on snow-covered Compo Road South. School officials were at the scene to ensure the students were safe.

Westport Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon said a woman was driving too fast for the road conditions when she plowed into the bus at about 7:40 a.m.

A passerby estimated the bus, en route to Bedford Middle School, was carrying about 20 students.

“There were no injuries to the students,” Landon said. “Dattco sent out a replacement bus to get the kids to school and to complete the elementary run.”

Selectmen Consider Speed Hump Proposals

By Jennifer Connic

The Westport Board of Selectmen tonight approved the possibility for speed humps on Colony Road and Oak Street, but they rejected a proposal for Evergreen Avenue.

Although the selectmen approved the two proposals, they said they wish for alternatives for speed humps to be explored first.

A large number of residents told the board they need help in curtailing speed on their road, including the father of a teen who was hit by a car last fall on Colony Road (See WestportNow Oct. 4, 2006).

Joe Lewis, whose then 16-year-old son Greg was hit by a car, said his neighborhood already had the bad accident that others are trying to avoid.

Family Y Issues Statement on Power Outage

Westport Weston Family Y officials said today they followed proper proceedures when a massive power outage hit downtown Westport on Tuesday.

A fault in a line that knocked out a circuit that fed Westport caused a power outage on Tuesday in the area from Post Road East at Myrtle Avenue west to Kings Highway South, from the Post Road to Canal Street, and north along Wilton Road to the area of exit 41 of the Merritt Parkway.

A lifeguard at the pool at the Westport Weston Family Y, which was also hit by the blackout, reported to WestportNow about the darkened conditions in the pool and his efforts to make sure everyone was safely out of the pool (See WestportNow Jan. 23).

Today, Westport Weston Family Y officials issued a written statement saying the emergency lighting turned on automatically when the power went out.
